Shabbat Shalom Loved One!    

YHWH is restoring all things; that includes us who were once DRY BONES! All who KNOW (Not know about) HIM and call on Him will be delivered- HalleluYAH!  Why are we on a different schedule of the Torah Cycle than the mainstream and the Orthodox? For me it is about restoration of all things- explanation continued at end of this week’s study!
We will start with a quick review from last week on: The Power of Hope and Repentance
Last week He said speak on HOPE. I will continue the review below- but realize this week we will move on to the DOING of the Gospel! Last week my thoughts were about how Yahshua saw hasatan (The Accuser) coming and declared: 
John 14:30  I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me. John 14:31  But that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father gave Me commandment, so I do. Arise, let us go from here. 
It seemed to me that for HOPE to abound we would need to know we are not condemned. I understood that for us to make a comment like that we would need to know we are clean with nothing IN us (Sin-and/or iniquities- especially hidden and dark things we may be ashamed to admit); further that would require we repent first and be washed in His blood and word. How can I ONLY BELIEVE if I have hidden sin? 
1 John 3:19 and by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall set our hearts at rest before Him, 1 John 3:20 that if our heart condemns us, Elohim is greater than our heart, and knows all. 1 John 3:21 Beloved ones, if our heart does not condemn us, we have boldness toward Elohim1 John 3:22  And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we guard His commands and do what is pleasing in His sight.f Footnote: f Proverbs_28:9John_9:31James_5:16
We remember that Yahshua promised if we believe ALL things are possible, with us mostly understanding that our prayer failures come from our unbelief. I have taught often that if we are willing to fast and pray- it will help rid us of unbelief. Let’s look at some scripture on HOPE.
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith (Belief) is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to Yahweh must believe that He is, andthat He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him
Our BELIEF (Faith), our HOPE (It is the substance that is not seen yet) must be based on or have a foundation in His scripture promises. He watches over His word to perform it. He is not a man that He would lie. His word (If we believe or have faith-trust in it) is GUARANTEED
Our hope must remain strong so that we pay persevere through the trial and obstacles set before- that we may inherit the believed promise. Proverbs 13:12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life. Proverbs 13:13 He who despises the word will be destroyed, But he who fears the commandment will be rewarded. 
Romans 8:24  For we were saved (Greek word here is SOSO- meaning delivered, made whole, healed and saved)in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? Romans 8:25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.  We can readily see that hope is the substance of belief or faith-trust. This is why we must take action and speak and build up our faith-belief-trust- because faith comes by hearing Yahweh’s word or promise. We remember; we become what we think on, as a man thinketh- so is he.

Fear Not, Only Believe as Yahshua instructed the synagogue ruler who was told his daughter was dead! How can we believe and have faith? REPENT!
(1 John 3:18)  My little children let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth(1 John 3:19)  And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall set our hearts at rest before Him, (1 John 3:20) that if our heart condemns us, Elohim is greater than our heart, and knows all. (1 John 3:21)  Beloved ones, if our heart does not condemn us, we have boldness toward Elohim. (1 John 3:22)  And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we guard His commands and do what is pleasing in His sight.1 Footnote: Proverbs 28:9, John 9:31, James 5:16(1 John 3:23)  And this is His command, that we should believe in the Name of His Son יהושעMessiah and love one another, as He gave us command. (1 John 3:24)  And the one guarding His commands stays in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He stays in us, by the Spirit which He gave us.1 Footnote: 1John 14:23-24, Acts 5:32, Romans 8:7-11, 1 John 2:5, 1 John 4:13.
We will be given (and are now given) the opportunity to repent before the Great and Awesome (Terrible in some translations) DAY OF YHWH (translated Day of the Lord in many translations) - the very day that Yahshua left off reading THE SCROLL from Isaiah 61 (the rest of the sentence) as His reason for His coming the first time was to preach the Acceptable Day of the Lord- not the Day of Wrath and Vengeance which is when He comes again. (Isaiah 61:1)  The Spirit of the Master יהוה is upon me, because יהוה has anointed me to bring good news to the meek. He has sent Me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim release to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound, (Isaiah 61:2) to proclaim the acceptable year of יהוהand the day of vengeance of our Elohim, to comfort all who mourn, (Isaiah 61:3) to appoint unto those who mourn in Tsiyon: to give them embellishment for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. And they shall be called trees of righteousness, a planting of יהוה, to be adorned.
He will have given us vast opportunities to repent; before His Judgment Day.  Yahchanan (John) - means Yah’s mercy, and John came preaching REPENT for the Kingdom is at hand! Then Yahshua tells us Elijah will indeed come first BEFORE the Great and Awesome Day but if we can receive it, he has already come with the coming of John the Immerser (Baptist). Obviously, we also will need to repent before His coming. Our Deliverer is coming for those that will humble themselves, making themselves ready as a BRIDE! Let’s make sure we are among them!
 With a REPENT NOW understanding in our hearts (Which alone removes condemnation); let us consider carefully our next action from the testimony below; especially if we live in the USA- taking every thought captive to obedience to Messiah and FEAR NOT! Our King can protect us wherever you are- even in a fiery furnace IFyou have asked Him where we are to be and obeyed what He said- which alone would give us permission to not “Come out of her or partake in her plagues” (Yes, even the country) Otherwise we can expect to partake of her plagues; remember Mystery Babylon is drunk on the blood of believers, including yours and mine if we disobey warning. FEAR NOT. Perfect Love casts out fear, Only Believe and that means we must be doers—laying aside all filthiness… Romans 12:1-2 comes to mind- renew our minds in the WORD!
James 1:21 Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. James 1:22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. James 1:23  For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; James 1:24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. James 1:25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty (Torah-Word- Instructions) and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does. James 1:26  If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one's religion is useless. James 1:27 Pure and undefiled religion before Yahweh the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. 
I am sharing my testimony which is another reminder Loved One for us to become DOERS of the Gospel not hearers only. 
Again; reviewing my testimony concerning where we in the USA are living: In late 1997 or early 1998, I asked our Heavenly Father, “If all these “end times” preachers are correct why isn’t America (USA was my specific thought but not my word in my question) in the scriptures?” He replied, “You are in the scriptures- go get your Bible and I will show you.” Surprised, I ran toward my house (I was outside) and got my Bible and sat down in my comfortable chair anticipating with prideful glee and a smile on my face- the great USA is in the Bible (I was quite proud) and I’m going to receive inside information as to where! Opening my Bible I asked again, “where?” He replied, “Turn to Revelation 17:1 and start reading, son and you will see America as I see her, but you may not like her name.” I was still excited with joyful expectation; “we’re in the Bible!” Joyful at least until I got to verses 5 and 6- so share my anticipation with me as I read: (Revelation 17:1) And one of the seven messengers who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying to me, “Come, I shall show you the judgment of the great whore sitting on many waters; 1 (Footnote: 1See v. 15.) (Revelation 17:2) with whom the sovereigns of the earth committed whoring, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her whoring.” (Revelation 17:3)  And he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast covered with names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. (Revelation 17:4)  And the woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup filled with abominations and the filthiness of her whoring,1 Footnote: 1Jeremiah 51:7. (Revelation 17:5) and upon her forehead a name written, a secret: BAḆEL THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF THE WHORES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. (Revelation 17:6)  And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the set-apart ones, and with the blood of the witnesses of יהושע. And having seen her, I Marveled – greatly Marveled! 
As the thought came Mystery Babylon- the Great Whore? I quickly replied, “No Lord- that’s IRAQ!” “That’s Iraq!” He replied, “It was Iraq, now it’s you.” My understanding was overwhelmed, and my thoughts kept racing- “I’ve heard from many great teachers and they told me it’s Iraq!” He replied, “You are the wealthiest country in the world and you do much wickedness.” I thought we did “good” around the world and were the most benevolent and giving aid country; and that is partly correct. I was still pondering these thoughts several years later while by myself camped out on the Galilee in Israel for 11 days reading the gospels. Someone had given me a book to witness to unbelievers while in Israel, saying to me, “The Lord told me to buy this and give it to you as he has someone you are to give it to.” I replied, “I don’t know anyone here but – whatever.” On the 10th day of my tent camp out between Bethsaida and the Jordan River (At the top of the Galilee) I heard from Him. He said, “fast tomorrow I want you to take the book “They thought for Themselves” (The witness book written by Sid Roth a messianic Jew I had been given which spoke of Jews who had accepted Yahshua-Jesus as Messiah) to the man (I considered a rabid rabbi) who heads up the Kabala college in Safed.” I replied, “No Lord I don’t want to do that.” He replied, “But you will.” I said again, “But I don’t want to.” He replied with finality, “But you will.” Thinking for a moment before I replied to His end of discussion answer I said; “Okay Lord, I will do it, but I want something from you. You told me several years ago that America is Mystery Babylon the whore; and IF that is true, (I still had not determined it was true) I want to know where a safe place is in America to get my family and “ride this out” (The Great Tribulation). I was imagining remote Montana or Wyoming or perhaps even the mountains of Colorado. What I heard next I spoke to no one for over 1 ½ years- I just could not believe it myself. Here’s His reply and sorry, you don’t have years to consider its validity as you may have only weeks or months to both decide and act: “Son there will be nothing left of America, in one hour her destruction will come and the sea captains will Marvel at the smoke of her burning.” These thoughts were downloaded me next: It’s a place or country- not a city like most translations say; they are anxious because there is no Market left; if it were a city- they would just transfer their Market to a different city, but that’s obviously not an option. Nothing left- only a place for every unclean bird (demonic spirits). Please pray about and ask for yourself concerning these matters as we can be protected anywhere we are told to be. You cannot be directed by someone else revelation or understanding, you must seek confirmation as you and I are both required to rightly divide the word and a matter is not truth without 2 or 3 witnesses confirming. May be time to fast and pray and rid ourselves of all unbelief- that we may hear clearly and obey what He shows us personally. Please don’t assume anything, but seek Him while He may be found and obey Him! He alone will be our Deliverer and refuge! In your consideration of these times and this testimony; remember we are a 3 part being. We are a spirit being made in Yahweh’s image; we have a soul (Mind, will, intellect, emotion); and physical- we live in a body- so we are spirit, soul, and body. My belief is that we likely must “Come out of her” (Babylon the whore) in all three areas: spiritually or the whore church or religious system because it is about relationship not religion or duty; soul or culture that is demonic or worldly; and physically – like places or country or even countries. Consider carefully for yourself and your loved ones.
Someday we will know and experience 42 months of GREAT TRIBULATION starting at a future Feast of Trumpets- the day “no man knows the day or hour”- which most of you know is a Hebrew idiom for Feast of Trumpets- the only Biblically commanded Feast or Moedim that you can never know the day or hour.  But…before all this…many fiery trials will be happening!
Why before all this? (Luke 21:8)  And He said, “See that you are not led astray(deceived/deluded) for many shall come in My Name, saying, ‘I am,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Then do not go after them. (Luke 21:9)  “But when you hear of fighting and unrests do not be alarmed, for these have to take place first, but the end is not immediately.” (Luke 21:10)  Then He said to them, Nation (race-ethnos) shall rise against nation (race-ethnos), and reign against reign. (Luke 21:11)  “And there shall be great earthquakes in various places, and scarcities of food (famine) and deadly diseases. And there shall be horrors, and great signs from heaven. (Luke 21:12)  “But before all this, they shall lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the congregations and prisons, and be brought before sovereigns and rulers for My Name’s sake. (Luke 21:13)  “And it shall turn out to you for a witness. (Luke 21:14)  Therefore, resolve in your hearts not to premeditate on what to answer.(Luke 21:15)  “I shall give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries shall not be able to refute or resist. (Luke 21:16)  “And you shall also be betrayed by parents and brothers and relatives and friends. And some of you shall be put to death. (Luke 21:17)  And you shall be hated by all because of My Name.
I believe we need to think these matters through for ourselves right now and resolve our response of trust in Him beforehand; sorting through His precious promises and draw ever near to our coming King. We must FEAR NOT even unto death! Let’s be used as worthy vessels of honor by our choice to trust Him even unto death. Hey, this is only a miniscule portion of our existence as we will be back on the earth to finish our Shabbat or 7thday (Millennium) of this earth; (Remember a day with YHWH is as 1000 years and 1000 years is as a day; Day 1 Adam, Day 2 Noah, Day 3 Abraham, Day 4 Yahshua, Day 5- 1-1000 A.D. or Common Era, Day 6- 1001-2000 A.D. thereabout and Day 7- Very Soon) prior to us receiving a new earth and a new heaven, where we will live with YHWH forever assuming we don’t become part of the deceived and deluded fallen away or rebellious stand as my friend Michael Rood says is the more correct translation. (Not much difference in the outcome in my humble opinion- but it does more clearly indicate the reason for our destruction if we take that stand against the Torah (Instructions) and the Prophets since Heaven and Earth will pass before they pass)
Once again I want to encourage you Loved One- no matter what evil the enemy has up His sleeve; if we are willing and obedient- giving thanks in all things, our Master and King will use us mightily to produce fruit that remains- even beyond us! We must focus our attention on Him and His promises- not on the facts we may be experiencing. He has destroyed the works of hell and therefore we can overcome the plans of hell, the giants and overwhelming obstacles and still walk in victory. Yahshua promises He will give us words to speak, and not one hair on our heads will be lost:

(Luke 21:17)  And you shall be hated by all because of My Name. (Luke 21:18)  But not a hair of your head shall be lost at all. (Luke 21:19)  Possess your lives by your endurance! (Luke 21:20)  “And when you see Yerushalayim surrounded by armies, and then know that it’s lying waste is near. (Luke 21:21)  “Then let those in Yehuḏah flee to the mountains, and let those who are in the midst of her go out, and let not those who are in the fields enter her. (This is likely because of the cleansing of the land 2/3 will be cut off and die and the women ravished-raped- this is probably in reference to Zechariah war):
(Zechariah 14:2) and I shall gather all the gentiles to battle against Yerushalayim1. And the city shall be taken, the houses plundered, and the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into exile, but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Footnote: 1Joel 3:2, Ephesians. 3:8, Revelation. 16:14(Zechariah 14:3) And יהוה shall go forth, and He shall fight against those gentiles, as He fights in the day of battle.
My expectation is: DECEPTION won’t overcome us who study and consider ourselves sober and alert- AWARE of the SEASONS (Moedim- rehearsals- FEASTS of YHWH!) Let’s begin by reading again the promise of delusion spoken and guaranteed by Yahshua the WORD made flesh that dwelled among us. 
2 Thessalonians 2: let no one deceive you in any way, because the falling away is to come firstand the man of lawlessness1 is to be revealed, the son of destruction, Footnote: 1Some texts read sin instead of lawlessness. This man might be the same one we read of in the prophecy in Isaiah. 14:12 – Hĕlĕl (“Heileil”), meaning “the shining one,” the sovereign of Baḇel. (Comment: consider the “King” of Babel would be equivalent to the leader of the U.S.) 2 Thessalonians 2:4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called Elohim or that is worshiped, so that he sits as Elohim in the Dwelling Place of Elohim, showing himself that he is Elohim. 
Why are these times so perilous? Because there is an attempted return of the wickedness as in the Days of Noah; which Yahshua promised would return prior to His arrival as Judge and King- this wickedness is all around us- government, culture, lack of morals, etc. This means that the great delusion promised is at the door: 2 Thessalonians 2:10 and with all deceit of unrighteousness in those perishing, because they did not receive the love of the truth, in order for them to be saved. 2 Thessalonians 2:11 and for this reason Elohim sends them a working of delusion, for them to believe the falsehood, 1 Footnote: Ezekiel 20:25, John 9:39, John 12:40, Acts 7:42, Romans 1:24-28. 2 Thessalonians 2:12 in order that all should be judged who did not believe the truth, but have delighted in the unrighteousness.
ONCE AGAIN: the MANY and the FEW. If we take a hundred men and /or women representing 100% - how many is “many”- would you agree over 50%? That would allow 50% for the few- that’s not really likely. Could it possibly be 70% for the many, which allows 30% for the few? That’s possible. How about 90% for the many and 10% for the few?  We have decisions to consider that we are making or have made that may not be wisdom for these days are more perilous than most of us are aware. 
(Matthew 7:12)  “Therefore, whatever you wish men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Torah and the Prophets. (Matthew 7:13)  “Enter in through the narrow gate! Because the gate is wide – and the way is broad – that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter in through it. (Matthew 7:14)  “Because the gate is narrow and the way is hard pressed1 which leads to life, and there are few who find it. Footnote: Or the way is afflicted.
Some of us have believed (Heck- maybe many of us) that going forward once in a prayer line and “accepting Jesus” is our ticket into eternity.  Not likely- we are expected to grow up and walk by belief and faith or else why would Yahshua (Jesus) say we are required to OVERCOME:
(Revelation 3:5) “He who overcomes shall be dressed in white robes, and I shall by no means blot out his name from the Book of Life, but I shall confess his name before My Father and before His messengers (Angels). Further we are required to overcome by the blood of the Lamb AND the word of our testimonies. (What we speak and DO!) Further we are required to ENDURE TO THE END! (Mark 13:12)  “And brother shall deliver up brother to death and a father his child. And children shall rise up against parents and shall put them to death(Mark 13:13)  And you shall be hated by all because of My NameBut he who shall have endured to the end, he shall be saved.1 Footnote: Matthew 10:22, Matthew 24:13. (Mark 13:14)  “And when you see the ‘abomination that lays waste,’ 1 spoken of by Dani’ĕl the prophet, set up where it should not be” – he who reads, let him understand – “then let those who are in Yehuḏah flee to the mountains.
Here’s why we must forsake traditions that are not lined up with His Torah (Instructions- Word): Our doctrines (DOINGS) MUST line up with the word forever established in Heaven if we expect our Creator to confirm His word with signs and wonders following as also He told Jeremiah- “I am watching over my word to perform it!”—
(Jeremiah 1:11) And the word of יהוה came to me, saying, “What do you see, Yirmeyahu?” And I said, “I see a branch of an almond tree.” (Jeremiah 1:12)  And יהוה said to me, You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to do it.”  (Matthew 15:8) ‘This people draw near to me with their mouth, and respect me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. (Matthew 15:9)  But in vain do they worship me, teaching as teachings(Doctrines) the commands of men.’ ” 1 Footnote: 1Isaiah 29:13, Mark 7:7, 2 Kings 17:19.
We are COMMANDED to NOT add to nor diminish His Torah/Word/Instructions: (Deuteronomy 4:1)  “And now, O Yisra’ĕl, listen to the laws and the right-rulings which I am teaching you to do, so that you live, and shall go in and possess the land which יהוה Elohim of your fathers is giving you. (Deuteronomy 4:2)  Do not add to the Word which I command you, and do not take away from it1, so as to guard the commands of יהוה your Elohim which I am commanding you. Footnote: 1See also 12:32, Proverbs 30:6, Revelation 22:18-19.
Guard against FEAR! (It is a spirit assigned by the enemy) The fearful are thrown into hell’s flames with the drunks, whores and sorcerers! He wants us to trust Him who has power to both kill the body and throw us into hell fires! Hasatan is only a created being allowed only to test the bride to see who she is- really- yes even in the fiery furnace- we can trust our mighty Elohim who sent Yahshua to pay the price of bitter waters and death of the whoring, adulterous bride that He may come again for a bride who makes herself READY! Hallelu-YAH!
He still desires intimacy and that comes from WILLING obedience as that is the only sacrifice that is acceptable to Him! A heart to HEAR and OBEY will always receive more instructions whereas a heart in rebellion- a “rebellious stand” will be cut off until REPENTANCE or death comes!
Results guaranteed for obedience and guarding His commands- not man made ones! Note guaranteed Generational Curses or Blessings based on our response to His WORDS (Instructions-Torah)! Some think they are “hiding” their sin- hehe- there is no hidden sin from our Creator; as He will always deliver the JUST results- yes even to our children’s grandchildren if need be! Flee sin- FEAR NOT!
For I, יהוה your Elohim am a jealous Ěl, visiting the crookedness of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate me, (Exodus 20:6) but showing kindness to thousands, to those who love me and guard my commands. (Exodus 20:7)  You do not bring1 the Name of יהוה your Elohim to naught, for יהוה does not leave the one unpunished who brings His Name to naught. Footnote: Or lift up, or take. (Exodus 20:8)  Remember the Sabbath day, to set it apart. (Exodus 20:9)  Six days you labor, and shall do all your work(Exodus 20:10) but the seventh day is a Sabbath 1 of יהוה your Elohim. You do not do any work – you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. Footnote: 1There are other Sabbaths, but this is the weekly Sabbath.(Exodus 20:11)  “For in six days יהוה made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore יהוה blessed the Sabbath day and set it apart.
Loving our neighbors as ourselves! How our Creator values and determines this…
(Exodus 20:12)  “Respect your father and your mother, so that your days are prolonged upon the soil which יהוהyour Elohim is giving you. (Comment: this is the first command with a promised result- that we live long on the Earth and prosper and that is certainly not limited to financial prosperity at all)(Ephesians 6:1) Children, obey your parents in the Master, for this is right. (Ephesians 6:2)  “Respect your father and mother,” which is the first command with promise(Ephesians 6:3) in order that it might be well with you, and you might live long on the earth.” KJV-
If you and I obey these commands (Torah/Instructions); we qualify as loving our neighbor as ourselves. You and I would never murder ourselves (unless we had demons). If we loved our neighbor we would never want his wife, or steal from him/her; we would not report something that we were not an eyewitness to; we would not steal his servants, or any of his possessions. (Exodus 20:13)  “You do not murder. (Exodus 20:14)  “You do not commit adultery. (Exodus 20:15)  “You do not steal. (Exodus 20:16)  “You do not bear false witness against your neighbor. (Exodus 20:17)  “You do not covet your neighbor’s house; you do not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, or whatever belongs to your neighbor.” (Exodus 20:18)  And all the people saw the thunders, the lightning flashes, the sound of the ram’s horn, and the mountain smoking. And the people saw it, and they trembled and stood at a distance, (Exodus 20:19) and said to Mosheh, “You speak with us and we hear, but let not Elohim speak with us, lest we die.” (Exodus 20:20) And Mosheh said to the people, Do not fear, for Elohim has come to prove you, and in order that His fear be before you, so that you do not sin.” (Exodus 20:21)  So the people stood at a distance, but Mosheh drew near the thick darkness where Elohim was. (Exodus 20:22)  And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Say this to the children of Yisra’ĕl: ‘You yourselves have seen that I have spoken to you from the heavens(Exodus 20:23)  ‘You do not make besides me mighty ones of silver, and you do not make mighty ones of gold for yourselves. (Exodus 20:24)  ‘Make an altar of earth for me, and you shall slaughter on it your burnt offerings and your peace offerings, your sheep and your cattle. In every place where I cause My Name to be remembered I shall come to you and bless you.
Yahshua reminds us: (John 14:20) “In that day you shall know that I am in My Father and you in me, and I in you. (John 14:21)  He who possesses my commands and guards them, it is he who loves me. And he who loves me shall be loved by My Father, and I shall love him and manifest myself to him.” Then we read 1 John: (1 John 2:15) Do not love the world or that which is in the worldIf anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.1 Footnote: 1Jm. 4:4. (1 John 2:16)  Because all that is in the world – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life – is not of the Father but is of the world. (1 John 2:17)  And the world passes away, and the lust of it, but the one doing the desire of Elohim remains forever.
Loved One- we are manifesting as the sons and daughters of the Creator as we learn to yield and obey. It is called She’mah (HEAR AND OBEY) O’ Israel! (1 John 3:1)  See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of Elohim! For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. (1 John 3:2)  Beloved ones, now we are children of Elohim. And it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. (1 John 3:3)  And everyone having this expectation in Him cleanses himself, as He is clean. (1 John 3:4)  Everyone doing sin also does lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. (1 John 3:9)  Everyone having been born of Elohim does not sin, because His seed stays in him, and he is powerless to sin, because he has been born of Elohim.
Becoming His family daily as we die to self!  Hallelu-YAH! Remember; “SIN” is defined as doing away with the law or Torahlessness in 1st John 3 and a look at our heart attitude of loving our neighbor as ourselves-  remember the vast power of our “WORDS” and their ability to direct our steps! (Proverbs 18:21)  Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those loving it eat its fruit.
Here are this Week’s Torah Scriptures:  Ve’etchanan “And I Pleaded/Sought”

Deuteronomy 3:23-7:1; Isaiah 40:1-31 (Extended); Mark 12:28-44 (Extended)
Father really wants us to obey Him that He may extend His promises to us! Look at the pattern we learn from Moses-
(Deuteronomy 3:23)  “And I pleaded with יהוה at that time, saying, (Deuteronomy 3:24)  ‘O Master יהוה, you have begun to show your servant your greatness and your strong hand, for who is a mighty one in the heavens or on earth who does according to your works and according to your might? (Deuteronomy 3:25)  ‘I pray, let me pass over and see the good land beyond the Yardĕn, this good hill country, and Leḇanon.’ (Deuteronomy 3:26)“But יהוה was enraged with me, for your sake, and would not listen to me, and יהוה said to me, ‘Enough of that! Speak no more to me about this matter. (Deuteronomy 3:27)  ‘Go up to the top of Pisgah, and lift up your eyes westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and look with your eyes, for you do not pass over this Yardĕn. (Deuteronomy 3:28)  ‘But charge Yehoshua, and strengthen him and make him brave, for he shall pass over before this people and causes them to inherit the land which you see.’ (Deuteronomy 3:29)  “And we dwelt in the valley opposite Bĕyth Peʽor. 
We are commanded to: NOT ADD TO or DIMINISH His Instructions!
(Deuteronomy 4:1)  “And now, O Yisra’ĕl, listen to the laws and the right-rulings which I am teaching you to do, so that you live, and shall go in and possess the land which יהוה Elohim of your fathers is giving you. (Deuteronomy 4:2)  Do not add to the Word which I command you, and do not take away from it 1, so as to guard the commands of יהוה your Elohim which I am commanding youFootnote: See also 12:32, Proverbs 30:6, Revelation 22:18-19(Deuteronomy 4:3)  “Your eyes have seen what יהוה did at Baʽal Peʽor, for יהוה your Elohim has destroyed from your midst all the men who followed Baʽal Peʽor. (Deuteronomy 4:4)  “But you who are clinging to יהוה your Elohim are alive today, every one of you. (Deuteronomy 4:5)  “See, I have taught you laws and right-rulings, as יהוה my Elohim commanded me, to do thus in the land which you go to possess. (Deuteronomy 4:6)  “And you shall guard and do them, for this is your wisdom and your understanding before the eyes of the peoples who hear all these laws, and they shall say; ‘Only- a wise and understanding people is this great nation!’ (Deuteronomy 4:7)  “For what great nation is there which has Elohim so near to it, as יהוה our Elohim is to us, whenever we call on Him? (Deuteronomy 4:8)  “And what great nation is there that has such laws and righteous right-rulings like all this Torah which I set before you this day? (Deuteronomy 4:9)  “Only, guard yourself, and guard your life diligently, lest you forget the Words your eyes have seen, and lest they turn aside from your heart all the days of your life. And you shall make them known to your children and your grandchildren. (Deuteronomy 4:10)  “The day when you stood before יהוה your Elohim in Ḥorĕḇ, יהוה said to me, ‘Assemble the people to me and I make them hear My Words, so that they learn to fear me all the days they live on the earth and teach them to their children.’ (Deuteronomy 4:11)  “And you came near and stood at the foot of the mountain, and the mountain burned with fire to the heart of the heavens – darkness, cloud, and thick darkness. (Deuteronomy 4:12)  “And יהוה spoke to you out of the midst of the fire. You heard a voice of words, but saw no form, you only heard a voice. (Deuteronomy 4:13)  “And He made known to you His covenant which He commanded you to do, the Ten Words, and He wrote them on two tablets of stone. (Deuteronomy 4:14)  “And יהוה commanded me at that time to teach you laws and right-rulings, for you to do them in the land which you pass over to possess. (Deuteronomy 4:15)  “Therefore, diligently guard yourselves, for you saw no form when יהוה spoke to you at Ḥorĕḇ out of the midst of the fire, (Deuteronomy 4:16)  lest you should do corruptly and shall make for yourselves a carved image in the form of any figure – the likeness of male or female, (Deuteronomy 4:17)  the likeness of any beast that is on the earth or the likeness of any winged bird that flies in the heavens, (Deuteronomy 4:18)  the likeness of any creature that creeps on the ground or the likeness of any fish that is in the water under the earth; (Deuteronomy 4:19)  and lest you lift up your eyes to the heavens, and shall see the sun, and the moon, and the stars – all the host of the heavens – and you be drawn away into bowing down to them and serving them, which יהוה your Elohim has allotted to all the peoples under all the heavens. (Deuteronomy 4:20)  “But יהוה has taken you and brought you out of the iron furnace, out of Mitsrayim, to be His people, an inheritance, as it is today. (Deuteronomy 4:21)  “And יהוה was enraged with me because of your words, and swore that I would not pass over the Yardĕn, and that I would not enter the good land which יהוה your Elohim is giving you as an inheritance. (Deuteronomy 4:22)  “I am to die in this land, I am not passing over the Yardĕn, but you are passing over, and shall possess that good land. (Deuteronomy 4:23)  “Guard yourselves, lest you forget the covenant of יהוה your Elohim which He made with you, and shall make for yourselves a carved image in the form of whatever יהוה your Elohim has forbidden you. (Deuteronomy 4:24)  “For יהוה your Elohim is a consuming fire, a jealous Ěl. (Deuteronomy 4:25) “When you bring forth children and grandchildren, and shall grow old in the land, and shall do corruptly and make a carved image in the form of whatever, and shall do what is evil in the eyes of יהוה your Elohim to provoke Him, (Deuteronomy 4:26)  “I shall call the heavens and earth to witness against you on that day, that you soon completely perish from the land which you pass over the Yardĕn to possess – you do not prolong your days in it but are completely destroyed. (Deuteronomy 4:27)  “And יהוה shall scatter you among the peoples, and you shall be left few in number among the gentiles where יהוהdrives you. (Deuteronomy 4:28)  “And there you shall serve mighty ones, the work of men’s hands, wood and stone, which neither see nor hear nor eat nor smell. (Deuteronomy 4:29)  “But from there you shall seek יהוה your Elohim, and shall find, when you search for Him with all your heart1 and with all your being. Footnote: 1Jer. 29:13. (Deuteronomy 4:30)  “In your distress, when all these words shall come upon you in the latter days, then you shall return to יהוה your Elohim and shall obey His voice. (Deuteronomy 4:31)  “For יהוה your Elohim is a compassionate Ěl, He does not forsake you, nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them. (Deuteronomy 4:32)  “For ask now of the days that are past, which were before you, since the day that Elohim created man on the earth, and ask from one end of the heavens to the other end of the heavens, whether there has been a Word as great as this, or has been heard like it. (Deuteronomy 4:33)  “Have any people ever heard the voice of Elohim speaking out of the midst of the fire, as you have heard, and live? (Deuteronomy 4:34)  “Or has Elohim tried to go and take for Himself a nation from the midst of a nation by trials, and by signs, and by wonders, and by battle, and by a strong hand and an outstretched arm, and by great fearsome deeds, according to all that יהוה your Elohim did for you in Mitsrayim before your eyes? (Deuteronomy 4:35)  “You have been shown it, to know that יהוה Himself is Elohim;

HEAR! Master; give us ears to hear you and the courage to obey! TEN WORDS!
(Deuteronomy 5:1)  And Mosheh called all Yisra’ĕl, and said to them, “Hear, O Yisra’ĕl, the laws and right-rulings which I speak in your hearing today. And you shall learn them, and guard to do them(Deuteronomy 5:2)  יהוה our Elohim made a covenant with us in Ḥorĕḇ. (Deuteronomy 5:3)  יהוה did not make this covenant with our fathers, but with us, those who are here today, all of us who are alive. (Deuteronomy 5:4)  יהוה spoke with you face to face on the mountain from the midst of the fire. (Deuteronomy 5:5)  “I stood between יהוה and you at that time, to declare to you the Word of יהוה – for you were afraid because of the fire, and you did not go up the mountain – saying: (Deuteronomy 5:6)  ‘I am יהוה your Elohim who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, out of the house of bondage. (Deuteronomy 5:7)  ‘You have no other mighty ones against my face. (Deuteronomy 5:8)  ‘You do not make for yourself a carved image, any likeness of which is in the heavens above, or which is in the earth beneath, or which is in the waters under the earth, (Deuteronomy 5:9)  you do not bow down to them nor serve them.

Who taught Him knowledge, and showed Him the way of understanding? (Isaiah 40:15)  See, nations are as a drop in a bucket, and are reckoned as dust on the balance. See, He lifts up isles as fine dust. (Isaiah 40:16)  And Leḇanon is not enough to burn, nor its beasts enough for a burnt offering. (Isaiah 40:17)  All nations before Him are as a non-entity, and they are reckoned by Him as less than a speck, and emptiness. (Isaiah 40:18)  And to whom would you liken Ěl? And what likeness would you compare to Him? (Isaiah 40:19)  The workman molds a graven image, and the goldsmith overspreads it with gold, and the silversmith casts silver chains. (Isaiah 40:20)  He who is too poor for such an offering chooses a tree that does not rot.

He who is bringing out their host by number, He calls them all by name, by the greatness of His might and the strength of His power – not one is missing. (Isaiah 40:27)  Why do you say, O Yaʽaqoḇ, and speak, O Yisra’ĕl, “My way is hidden from יהוה, and my rights are overlooked by my Elohim”? (Isaiah 40:28)  Did you not know? Have you not heard? The everlasting Elohim, יהוה, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. (Isaiah 40:29)  He gives power to the faint, and to those who have no might He increases strength. (Isaiah 40:30)  Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men stumble and fall, (Isaiah 40:31) but those who wait on יהוה renew their strength, they raise up the wing like eagles, they run and are not weary, they walk and do not faint. 

We love Yahweh with all our heart by loving obedience and we love our neighbor as ourselves by receiving our Messiah’s love and giving it to others!
(Mark 12:28)  And one of the scribes coming near, hearing them reasoning together, knowing that He had answered them well, asked Him, “Which is the first command of all?” (Mark 12:29)  And יהושע answered him, “The first of all the commands is, ‘Hear, O Yisra’ĕl, יהוה our Elohim, יהוה is one(Yahshua quotes the She’mah Deuteronomy 6:4) (Mark 12:30)  And you shall love יהוה your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your being, and with your entire mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first command. (Mark 12:31)  “And the second, like it, is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other command greater than these.” (Mark 12:32)  And the scribe said to Him, “Well said, Teacher. You have spoken the truth, for there is one Elohim, and there is no other besides Him. (Mark 12:33)  “And to love Him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the being, and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as oneself, is more than all the burnt offerings and offerings.” (Mark 12:34)  And when יהושע saw that he answered wisely, He said to him, “You are not far from the reign of Elohim.” And after that no one was bold enough to question Him. (Mark 12:35)  And יהושע responding, said, while teaching in the Set-apart Place, “How is it that the scribes say that the Messiah is the Son of Dawiḏ? (Mark 12:36)  “Dawiḏ himself said by the Set-apart Spirit, ‘יהוה said to my Master, “Sit at My right hand, until I make your enemies a footstool of your feet.” ’ (Mark 12:37)“Dawiḏ himself calls Him ‘Master.’ In what way then is He his Son?” And the large crowd heard Him gladly. (Mark 12:38)  And in His teaching He was saying to them, “Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and like greetings in the Market-places, (Mark 12:39) and the best seats in the congregations, and the best places at feasts, (Mark 12:40) who are devouring widows’ houses, and for a show make long prayers. These shall receive greater judgment.” (Mark 12:41)  And sitting opposite the treasury He saw how the people put copper into the treasury. And many rich ones put in much. (Mark 12:42)  And a poor widow came and threw in two small copper coins, which amount to a cent. (Mark 12:43)  And calling near His taught ones He said to them, “Truly, I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all those putting into the treasury, (Mark 12:44)  for they all put in out of their excess, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, her entire livelihood.” 
Loved One, I pray we walk in the spirit and not according to the lusts and directions of the flesh. That we may each repent quickly wherever we miss and stumble. I further pray we ALWAYS forgive and speak forgiveness and blessings on those who do and have done evil against us. They need our love of the Father (Obedience) to break forth and come to our King! This is how they will recognize us; that we have love for one another and our King! It is the LOVE of YAHWEH that draws men to repentance- not our knowledge! Loved One, I pray YOU and I make every effort to love the Creator according to His ways and desires and not our learned ones that are filled with pagan ritual both in Churchianity and Judaism. I pray you gain an ear to hear Him and the courage to obey Him! Thanks for your continued prayers for Billie and me- they are cherished! THANK YOU! You are much loved! We must count our blessings and REJOICE! Fear not and worry not! YAHWEH is on His throne laughing at and holding evil leaders in derision… so let’s think on what He promises and His good reports!
(Philippians 4:4)  Rejoice in יהוה always, again I say, rejoice! (Philippians 4:5)  Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Master is near(Philippians 4:6)  Do not worry (be anxious) at all, but in every matter, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to Elohim. (Philippians 4:7)  And the peace of Elohim, which surpasses all understanding, shall guard your hearts and minds through Messiah יהושע(Philippians 4:8)  For the rest, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is righteous, whatever is clean, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good report, if there is any uprightness and if there is any praise – think on these things.
Shalom to your home Loved One,

Continued explanation of the Torah Cycle restart at beginning of months… It is about YHWH restoring all things which sometimes means we are walking alone. I start over annually when Yahweh’s year starts over; this is not to say that I am correct and others are wrong, I just happen to believe we will never challenge our older brother Judah by following his traditions. I expect Judah will be moved by our obedience to His Torah (Words of Scripture) and seeing Yahweh’s signs and wonders following our obedience- Does the statement above mean we are not to grab the tzitzit of Yehuda and take hold and learn from them? Of course not, we absolutely should learn of them and from them- just not ingest and keep that which is traditions that go against His words! Especially since we are the ten (Ten scattered northern tribes scattered for Easter and sun god day worship which parallels closely as a pig slop eating prodigal brother)

Let’s look; (Zechariah 8:22) ‘And many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek יהוה of hosts in Yerushalayim, and to pray before יהוה.’ (Zechariah 8:23)  “Thus said יהוה of hosts, ‘In those days (Now? YES and in the future also!) Ten men (10 scattered northern tribes called Ephraim and Israel) from all languages of the nations take hold, yea, they shall take hold of the edge of the garment of a man, a Yehuḏite1, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that Elohim is with you.” ’ ” Footnote: 1John 4:22.
