Shabbat Shalom Loved One!

He truly is watching over His word to perform it; not our additions and subtractions such as adding our own pagan feast dates (Moedim- His appointed times with us, or removing His commanded Feasts from our worship. What we speak must line up with His word that is forever settled in Heaven. This study is attached for printing and available at the website below. Yahweh 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!
Much is on my mind concerning who we are and who among us will determine to become as He is. We are all aware that the seasons of these end-times seem to be accelerating. The question we should all address is; WHAT ARE WE DOING TO BECOME WHO WE WERE MADE TO BE? That is, we all have a calling- but are we making ourselves ready to be His Bride without---WITHOUT- spot or blemish?
Last week I shared about our need to TESHUVA- or REPENT. I want to remind us that REPENTING is not just admittance of sin- or even being sorry for our sin. REPENTANCE is TURNING 180 degrees from our sin and pursuing righteousness through determined and loving obedience! IF we will not repent we can expect that we are deceived and the devil will continue to manipulate and use us and our loved ones as he chooses. 
James 4:7 So then subject (Submit to His word/instruction) yourselves to Elohim. Resist the devil b and he shall flee from you. Footnote: Or adversary. James 4:8 Draw near to Elohim and He shall draw near to you. Cleanse hands, sinners. And cleanse the hearts, you double-minded! James 4:9 Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to dejection. James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Master, and He shall lift you up. James 4:11 Brothers, do not speak against one another. He that speaks against a brother and judges his brother speaks against Torah and judges Torah. And if you judge Torah, you are not a doer of Torah but a judge. James 4:12 There is one Lawgiver and Judge, who is able to save and to destroy. Who are you to judge another? (Comment: This sort of judgment is referring to condemnation- as we are commanded to make right judgments- for our own walk and associations- but we are not to condemn- we are to love them and yet hate the sin-if they will not repent when confronted we are to remove ourselves from their fellowship and allow Yahweh to deal with them, that they may attain everlasting life through repentance)
(Isaiah 51:1) “Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness, seeking יהוה: Look to the rock you were hewn from, and to the hole of the pit you were dug from. (Isaiah 51:2)  “Look to Aḇraham your father, and to Sarah who bore you. He was alone when I called him, and I blessed him and increased him. (Isaiah 51:3)  “For יהוה shall comfort Tsiyon, He shall comfort all her waste places. He makes her wilderness like Ěḏen, and her desert like the garden of יהוה. Joy and gladness are found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of song. 
Walking in His power comes from us yielding to His Spirit and allowing the direction of our lives to be changed by Him- my expectation is; if we will not trust Him by yielding our tongues to Him, we will never reach our destiny in Him and we have not really surrendered our lives at all! He promises us we can trust Him in this seeking:
(Luke 11:10) “For everyone asking receives, and he who is seeking finds, and to him who is knocking it shall be opened. (Luke 11:11)  “And what father among you whose son asks for bread shall give him a stone, or if he asks for a fish shall give him a snake instead of a fish, (Luke 11:12) or if he asks for an egg shall give him a scorpion(Snakes and scorpions represent the demonic realm here as indicated in Luke 10:18-20)- (Luke 10:18) And He said to them, “I saw Satan falling out of the heaven as lightning. (Luke 10:19)  “See, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and none at all shall hurt you. (Luke 10:20)  “But do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names have been written in the heavens.”
He promises to disallow the demonic realm for truth seekers who seek to yield our tongues to His Spirit and allow Him to Mikveh (baptize) us in His Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) Here’s why this is important as our tongues direct us like a ship’s rudder or a bridle to a horse!
(James 3:2)  For we all stumble in many matters. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the entire body. (James 3:3)  Look, we put bits in the mouths of horses, for them to obey us, and we turn their body. (James 3:4)  Look at the ships too: although they are so big and are driven by strong winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot intends. (James 3:5)  So too the tongue is a little member, yet boasts greatly. See how a little fire kindles a great forest! (James 3:6)  And the tongue is a fire, the world of unrighteousness. Among our members the tongue is set, the one defiling the entire body, and setting on fire the wheel of life, and it is set on fire by Gehenna. 
Here’s our protection in seeking this supernatural and regular help Guaranteed by Yahshua!
(Luke 11:13)  If you then, being wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Father from heaven give the Set-apart Spirit to those asking Him!”
Since we don’t always know how to pray it is essential truth seeking loved one- to receive the Mikveh of His Spirit! ONE MORE TIME- Note also that this is HOW He works things for good for us when we don’t even know what we are praying sometimes! 
(Romans 8:26)  And in the same way the Spirit does help in our weaknesses. We do not know what we should pray, but the Spirit Himself pleads our case for us with groaning’s unutterable(Comment” not our normal and understandable speech- but He understands)  (Romans 8:27)  And He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the set-apart ones according to Elohim. (Romans 8:28)  And we know that all matters work together for good to those who love Elohim, to those who are called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:29)  Because those whom He knew beforehand, He also ordained beforehand to be conformed to the likeness of His Son, for Him to be the first-born among many brothers. (Romans 8:30)  And whom He ordained beforehand, these He also called, and whom He called, these He also declared right. And whom He declared right, these He also esteemed. (Romans 8:31)  What then shall we say to this? If Elohim is for us, who is against us? (Romans 8:32)  Truly, He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up on behalf of us all – how shall He not, along with Him, freely give us all else? (Romans 8:33) Who shall bring any charge against Elohim’s chosen ones? It is Elohim who is declaring right(Righteousness)(Romans 8:34)  Who is he who is condemning? It is Messiah who died, and furthermore is also raised up, who is also at the right hand of Elohim, who also makes intercession for us. (Romans 8:35)  Who shall separate us from the love of the Messiah? Shall pressure, or distress, or persecution, or scarcity of food, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? (Romans 8:36)  As it has been written, “For Your sake we are killed all day long, we are reckoned as sheep of slaughter.” (Romans 8:37)  But in all this we are more than overcomers through Him who loved us. (Romans 8:38)  For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor messengers nor principalities nor powers, neither the present nor the future, (Romans 8:39) nor height nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of Elohim which is in Messiah יהושע our Master.
I shared a few years back, (I think) about having read a book nearly two years ago by Anna Mendez Ferrell- whom I have great respect for- as I have met her- that addresses INIQUITIES. I want us to take a fresh look at our own lives and investigate what makes us react certain ways to events with what we would consider STRANGE RESPONSE AND BEHAVIOR! Recently, I attended a ministry event in Texas called Luke 4:18 that helps many deal with iniquities and generational curses. At least those who want even greater intimacy with their Creator, because much has interfered with what Adam originally had in relationship with our Heavenly Father. It was an awesome and well thought out ministry- seems hasatan has no new means to destroy our peace, character and integrity; or our call to produce fruit for Yahweh’s Kingdom. Even still, hasatan’s plan; left unchecked- will leave most of us never attaining our calling or reason and purpose our Creator made us for.
Most of us know that iniquities are roots of sin behavior and have to do with generational curses passed down for many generations. These are not judgments for sin, but the sin of our own, and those of our bloodlines upward that open avenues or maybe better called demonic doors of attacks to place the same sin on us—and most of us have been at least partially blocked from really overcoming and attaining the intimacy of KNOWING HIM as He wants us to. A look at King David’s life and the Psalms is eye opening, as he recognizes his iniquities and determines and calls out for help.  Let’s at least ponder and consider that IF King David recognized that he had a supernatural enemy and problem- perhaps we could glean for our own lives. Let’s look again and implant these thoughts as we receive His engrafted word:
Psalms_38:4 For my iniquities have gone over my head; like a heavy burden they are too heavy for me. 
Psalms_40:12  For innumerable evils have surrounded me; my iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of my head; Therefore my heart fails me. 
Psalms_51:9 Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities
Psalms_64:6 They devise iniquities: "We have perfected a shrewd scheme." both the inward thought and the heart of man are deep. 
Psalms_65:3 Iniquities prevail against me; as for our transgressions, you will provide atonement for them. 
Psalms_79:8 Oh, do not remember former iniquities against us! Let your tender mercies come speedily to meet us, for we have been brought very low. 
Psalms_90:8 You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your countenance. 
Psalms_103:3 Who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, 
Psalms_103:10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities
Psalms_107:17 Fools, because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, were afflicted. 
So generational curses of iniquities is likely the very thing blocking many of us from moving forward to intimacy—it seems sometimes we just have no more hunger or thirst for Him- we are blocked somehow of desire to move deeper into Him. The author of the book shared that she always had a difficult time and was continually losing her money (Even her inheritance) that she knew was rightfully hers. So, she made a very wise move that we each should consider also. She asked the Father to reveal why this continued to happen in her life and why she could not overcome. Yes – she sought Him with ALL her heart and desire!
She was given a dream that night and saw an event happen in her grandfather’s life. He was a businessman and cheated his partner out wrongfully and she heard the partner tell him- “You and your descendants will be cursed for ever for this!” So she acknowledged her own shortcomings in repentance and placed the blood of the Lamb between her grandfather’s sin and her bloodline downward! She shares that it seemed the windows of heaven began to pour on her and never again did she experience lack from that day forward! I encourage you to do likewise- take a paper and look at the results of sin in your lineage. Divorces, lack, sickness, disease, hate, bitterness, fornication, adultery, etc. and deal with these as some have likely been attached to our lives also. We must ask and SPECIFICALLY hear and address these iniquities that we may make ourselves ready! Our loving heavenly Father will give us strategies- if we will but ask and receive! He stands at the door and knocks on our hearts- will we listen and allow Him to help us? 
Matthew 6:14 “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father shall also forgive you. Matthew 6:15 “But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither shall your Father forgive your trespasses. Matthew 6:16 “And when you fast, (NOT IF) do not be sad-faced like the hypocrites. For they disfigure their faces so that they appear to be fasting to men. Truly, I say to you, they have their reward. Matthew 6:17 “But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, Matthew 6:18 so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place. And your Father who sees in secret shall reward you openly. Matthew6:19  “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, Matthew 6:20  but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. Matthew 6:21 “For where your treasure is, there your heart shall be also. Matthew 6:22 “The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, all your body shall be enlightenedMatthew 6:23 “But if your eye is evil, 1 all your body shall be darkened. If, then, the light that is within you is darkness, how great is that darknessFootnote: this is a Heḇrew idiom – a good eye means to be generous, while an evil eye means to be stingy. Matthew 6:24 “No one is able to serve two masters, for either he shall hate the one and love the other, or else he shall cleave to the one and despise the other. You are not able to serve Elohim and mammon.1 Footnote: Personification of wealth. Matthew 6:25 “Because of this I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you shall eat or drink, or about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than the food and the body more than the clothing? Matthew 6:26 “Look at the birds of the heaven, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into storehouses, yet your heavenly Father does feed them. Are you not worth more than they? Matthew 6:27 “And which of you by worrying is able to add one cubit to his life’s span? Matthew 6:28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Note well the lilies of the field, how they grow. They neither toil nor spin, Matthew 6:29 and I say to you that even Shelomoh in all his esteem was not dressed like one of these. Matthew 6:30  “But if Elohim so clothes the grass of the field, which exists today, and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more you, O you of little belief? Matthew 6:31 “Do not worry then, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ Matthew 6:32 “For all these the gentiles seek for. And your heavenly Father knows that you need all these. Matthew 6:33 But seek first the reign of Elohim, and His righteousness, and all these matters shall be added to you. Matthew 6:34 “Do not, then, worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow shall have its own worries. Each day has enough evil of itself. 
Loved Ones- Many have been in a “need to fast” time, and as usual there is always a very good reason we are being urged by the Ruach HaKodesh to fast and pray. Those of us who have been around a while realize—trouble’s brewing just ahead—and if we ignore His urging to fast and pray- we are NOT WISE!
So consider what the benefits are of fasting and praying. Remember with me all offerings are only acceptable when they cost us something- afflicting our souls do this. 
The awesome truth of the spiritual benefit of prayer and fasting: It rids us of our unbelief!
He still desires intimacy and that comes from WILLING obedience as that is the only sacrifice that is acceptable to Him! A heart to obey will always receive more instructions whereas a heart in rebellion will be cut off and allowed to stumble until REPENTANCE comes!
Yahshua reminds us: (John 14:20) In that day (Comment: Hebrew idiom for Day of the Lord) 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 (does) 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 world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.1 Footnote: James 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! May our loving Creator give us the ears to hear Him and the courage to obey Him!
(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 3:5)  And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. (1 John 3:6)  Everyone staying in Him does not sin. Everyone sinning has neither seen Him nor known Him.1 Footnote: See 2:4 & 3 John v. 11. (1 John 3:7)  Little children, let no one lead you astray. The one doing righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous.1 Footnote: 1See 2:29(1 John 3:8)  The one doing sin is of the devil, because the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of Elohim was manifested: to destroy the works of the devil.1 Footnote: See Titus 2:14(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.
“DOING” the Gospel is not only guarding our tongues to agree with Yahweh’s words but keeping ourselves pure and undefiled from the world and its systems and culture of whoredoms which contain pagan traditions. Obedience to Torah is FREEDOM!
PURE RELIGION and undefiled is this- take care of widows and orphans and keep ourselves from being polluted (naturally) by the world and its culture! (James 1:21)  Therefore put away all filthiness and overflow of evil, and receive with meekness the implanted Word, 1 which is able to save your lives. Footnote: See Matthew 13:4-23. (James 1:22)  And become doers of the Word, and not hearers only, 1 deceiving yourselvesFootnote: See Matthew 7:24-27, Luke 6:46-49, Luke 8:21, Romans 2:13, Hebrews 4:11, Revelation 22:14.  (James 1:23)  If anyone is a hearer of the Word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror, (James 1:24) for he looks at himself, and goes away, and immediately forgets what he was like. (James 1:25)  But he that looked into the perfect Torah, that of freedom, 1 and continues in it, not becoming a hearer that forgets, but a doer of work, this one shall be blessed in his doing of the TorahFootnote: See 2:12(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 worthless(James 1:27)  Clean and undefiled religion before the Elohim and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained (Unpolluted) from the world.
Really want to know the will of YHWH for your life? Do we really want to know? Here’s how; offer our bodies as a living sacrifice- that is fast and pray and READ and MEDITATE on His Word- yes Torah, the prophets and the Renewed Covenant!
(Romans 12:1)  I call upon you, therefore, brothers, through the compassion of Elohim, to present your bodies a living offering – set-apart, well-pleasing to Elohim – your reasonable worship. (Romans 12:2)  And do not be conformed to this world (Pollution and defiled), but be transformed by the renewing of your mind(Meditating on the Word) so that you prove what is that good and well-pleasing and perfect desire of Elohim.(His will)

Blessings or Curses from Obedience or Disobedience- We get to choose!
(Keep in mind it is not legalism to obey Yahweh- that’s called obedience and brings forth blessings- it is legalism to obey man’s added rules and traditions- which Yahshua says makes the word of none effect!)
(Deuteronomy 11:26)  See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse: (Deuteronomy 11:27) the blessing, when you obey the commands of יהוה your Elohim which I command you today(Deuteronomy 11:28)and the curse, if you do not obey the commands of יהוה your Elohim, but turn aside from the way which I command you today, to go after other mighty ones which you have not known. (Deuteronomy 11:29)  ‘And it shall be, when יהוה your Elohim has brought you into the land which you go to possess, that you shall put the blessing on Mount Gerizim and the curse on Mount Ěyḇal. (Deuteronomy 11:30) ‘Are they not beyond the Yardĕn, toward the setting sun, in the land of the Kenaʽanites who dwell in the desert plain opposite Gilgal, beside the terebinth trees of Moreh? (Deuteronomy 11:31)  ‘For you are passing over the Yardĕn to go in to possess the land which יהוה your Elohim is giving you, and you shall possess it and dwell in it, (Deuteronomy 11:32)  and shall guard to do all the laws and right-rulings which I am setting before you today.’ (Deuteronomy 12:1)  “These are the laws and right-rulings which you guard to do in the land which יהוה Elohim of your fathers is giving you to possess, all the days that you live on the soil. (Deuteronomy 12:2)  “Completely destroy all the places where the nations which you are dispossessing served their mighty ones, on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree. (Deuteronomy 12:3)  “And you shall break down their altars, and smash their pillars, and burn their Ashĕrim with fire. And you shall cut down the carved images of their mighty ones and shall destroy their name 1 out of that place. Footnote: The names of the gentile deities (mighty ones)(Deuteronomy 12:4)  “Do not do so to יהוה your Elohim, (Deuteronomy 12:5)  but seek the place which יהוה your Elohim chooses, out of all your tribes, to put His Name there, for His Dwelling Place, and there you shall enter. (Deuteronomy 12:6)  “And there you shall take your burnt offerings, and your offerings, and your tithes, and the contributions of your hand, and your vowed offerings, and your voluntary offerings, and the firstlings of your herd and of your flock.(Deuteronomy 12:7)  “And there you shall eat before יהוה your Elohim, and shall rejoice in all that you put your hand to, you and your households, in which יהוה your Elohim has blessed you. (Deuteronomy 12:8)  “Do not do as we are doing here today – each one doing whatever is right in his own eyes 1.Footnote: See Judges 17:6 & 21:25(Deuteronomy 12:9)  “Because you have not yet entered the rest and the inheritance which יהוה your Elohim is giving you. (Deuteronomy 12:10)  “But you shall pass over the Yardĕn, and shall dwell in the land which יהוה your Elohim is giving you to inherit, and He shall give you rest from all your enemies round about, and you shall dwell in safety. (Deuteronomy 12:11)  “And it shall be that unto the place which יהוה your Elohim chooses to make His Name dwell there, there you are to bring all that I command you: your burnt offerings, and your offerings, and your tithes, and the contributions of your hand, and all your choice offerings which you vow to יהוה(Deuteronomy 12:12)  “And you shall rejoice before יהוה your Elohim, you and your sons and your daughters, and your male servants and your female servants, and the Lĕwite who is within your gates, since he has no portion nor inheritance with you.
Do not eat blood!
(Deuteronomy 12:13)  “Guard yourself that you do not offer your burnt offerings in every place that you see, (Deuteronomy 12:14) except in the place which יהוה chooses, in one of your tribes, there you are to offer your burnt offerings, and there you are to do all that I command you. (Deuteronomy 12:15)  “Only, whatever your being desires you shall slaughter and eat, according to the blessing of יהוה your Elohim which He has given you, within all your gates. The unclean and the clean do eat of it, of the gazelle and the deer alike. (Deuteronomy12:16)  Only, the blood you do not eat, pour it on the earth like water. (Deuteronomy 12:17)  “You are not allowed to eat within your gates the tithe of your grain, or of your new wine, or of your oil, or of the firstlings of your herd or your flock, or of any of your offerings which you vow, or of your voluntary offerings, or of the contribution of your hand. (Deuteronomy 12:18)  “But eat them before יהוה your Elohim, in the place which יהוהyour Elohim chooses, you and your son and your daughter, and your male servant and your female servant, and the Lĕwite who is within your gates. And you shall rejoice before יהוה your Elohim in all that you put your hands to. (Deuteronomy 12:19)  “Guard yourself that you do not forsake the Lĕwite as long as you live in your land. (Deuteronomy 12:20)  “When יהוה your Elohim enlarges your border as He has promised you, and you say, ‘Let me eat meat,’ because you long to eat meat, you eat as much meat as your being desires. (Deuteronomy 12:21)  “When the place where יהוה your Elohim chooses to put His Name is too far from you, then you shall slaughter from your herd and from your flock which יהוה has given you, as I have commanded you, and you shall eat within your gates as much as your being desires. (Deuteronomy 12:22)  “Only, as the gazelle and the deer are eaten, so you are to eat of it. The unclean and the clean alike eat of it. (Deuteronomy 12:23)  Be firm not to eat the blood, for the blood is the life, do not eat the life with the meatDeuteronomy 12:24) “Do not eat it you pour it on the earth like water. (Deuteronomy 12:25)  Do not eat itthat it might be well with you and your children after you, when you do what is right in the eyes of יהוה. (Deuteronomy 12:26)  “Only, the set-apart gifts which you have, and your vowed offerings, you are to take up and go to the place which יהוה chooses. (Deuteronomy 12:27)  “And you shall make your burnt offerings, the meat and the blood, on the altar of יהוה your Elohim. And the blood of your offerings is poured out on the altar of יהוה your Elohim, and you eat the meat. (Deuteronomy 12:28)  “Guard, and obey all these words which I command you, that it might be well with you and your children after you forever, when you do what is good and right in the eyes of יהוה your Elohim. (Deuteronomy 12:29)  “When יהוה your Elohim does cut off from before you the nations which you go to dispossess, and you dispossess them and dwell in their land, (Deuteronomy 12:30) guard yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire about their mighty ones, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their mighty ones? And let me do so too.’ 1 Footnote: See also 18:9, Leviticus 18:3, Jeremiah10:2, Ezekiel 11:12 & 20:32, Ephesians 4:17, and 1 Peter 4:3 (Deuteronomy12:31) “Do not do so to יהוה your Elohim, for every abomination which יהוה hates they have done to their mighty ones, for they even burn their sons and daughters in the fire to their mighty ones(Deuteronomy 12:32)  All the words I am commanding you, guard to do it – do not add to it nor take away from it.1 Footnote: See also 4:2, Proverbs 30:6, Revelation 22:18-19.
No matter how many signs and wonders you see don’t follow pagan traditions!
(Deuteronomy 13:1)  “When there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams, and he shall give you a sign or a wonder, (Deuteronomy 13:2)  and the sign or the wonder shall come true, of which he has spoken to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other mighty ones – which you have not known – and serve them,’ (Deuteronomy 13:3)  do not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams, for יהוה your Elohim is trying you to know whether you love יהוה your Elohim with all your heart and with all your being(Deuteronomy 13:4)  Walk after יהוה your Elohim and fear Him, and guard His commands and obey His voice, and serve Him and cling to Him(Deuteronomy 13:5)  “And that prophet or that dreamer of dreams is put to death, because he has spoken apostasy against יהוה your Elohim – who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim and redeemed you from the house of bondage – to make you stray from the way in which יהוה your Elohim commanded you to walk. Thus you shall purge the evil from your midst. (Deuteronomy 13:6)  “When your brother, the son of your mother, or your son or your daughter, or the wife of your bosom, or your friend who is as your own being, entices you secretly, saying, ‘Let us go and serve other mighty ones’– which you have not known, neither you nor your fathers, (Deuteronomy 13:7)  of the mighty ones of the people which are all around you, near to you or far off from you, from one end of the earth to the other end of the earth – (Deuteronomy 13:8)  do not agree with him or listen to him, nor shall your eye pardon him, nor spare him or conceal him, (Deuteronomy 13:9)  but you shall certainly kill him. Your hand is first against him to put him to death, and afterward the hand of all the people, (Deuteronomy 13:10)  and you shall stone him with stones until he dies, because he sought to entice you away from יהוה your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, from the house of bondage. (Deuteronomy13:11)  “And let all Yisra’ĕl hear and fear, and not again do any such evil matter as this in your midst. (Deuteronomy 13:12)  “When you hear someone in one of your cities, which יהוה your Elohim gives you to dwell in, saying, (Deuteronomy 13:13) ‘Some men, sons of Beliyaʽal, have gone out of you midst and led the inhabitants of their city astray, saying, “Let us go and serve other mighty ones” ’ – mighty ones whom you have not known – (Deuteronomy 13:14) then you shall inquire, search out, and ask diligently. And see if the matter is true and established that this abomination was done in your midst, (Deuteronomy 13:15)  you shall certainly smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, putting it under the ban, and all that is in it and its livestock, with the edge of the sword. (Deuteronomy 13:16)  “And gather all its plunder into the middle of the street, and completely burn with fire the city and all its plunder, before יהוה your Elohim. And it shall be a heap forever, never to be built again. (Deuteronomy 13:17)  “And none of that which is put under the ban is to cling to your hand, so that יהוה turns from the fierceness of His displeasure and shall show you compassion, love you and increase you, as He swore to your fathers, (Deuteronomy 13:18) when you obey the voice of יהוה your Elohim, to guard all His commands which I command you today, to do what is right in the eyes of יהוה your Elohim. 
No tattoos- REPENT! Eat in obedience and get healthy- BLESSING!
(Deuteronomy 14:1)  “You are the children of יהוה your Elohim. Do not cut yourselves nor shave the front of your head for the dead, (Deuteronomy 14:2)  for you are a set-apart people to יהוה your Elohim, and יהוה has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a treasured possession above all the peoples who are on the face of the earth. (Deuteronomy 14:3)  Do not eat whatever is abominable(Deuteronomy 14:4)  “These are the living creatures which you do eat: ox, sheep, and goat, (Deuteronomy 14:5) deer, and gazelle, and roebuck, and wild goat, and mountain goat, and antelope, and mountain sheep. (Deuteronomy 14:6)  “And every beast that has a split hoof divided in two, chewing the cud, among the beasts, you do eat(Deuteronomy 14:7) “But of those chewing the cud or those having a split hoof completely divided, you do not eat, such as these: the camel, and the hare, and the rabbit, for they chew the cud but do not have a split hoof, they are unclean for you. (Deuteronomy 14:8)  “And the pig is unclean for you, because it has a split hoof, but does not chew the cud.

Do not cook a young goat in its mother’s milk. (Deuteronomy 14:22)  “You shall tithe without fail all the yield of your grain that the field brings forth year by year(Deuteronomy 14:23)  “And you shall eat before יהוה your Elohim, in the place where He chooses to make His Name dwell, the tithe of your grain and your new wine and your oil, and of the firstlings of your herds and your sheep, so that you learn to fear יהוה your Elohim always. (Deuteronomy 14:24)  “But when the way is too long for you, so that you are not able to bring the tithe, or when the place where יהוה your Elohim chooses to put His Name is too far from you, when יהוה your Elohim is blessing you, (Deuteronomy 14:25) then you shall give it in silver, and shall take the silver in your hand and go to the place which יהוה your Elohim chooses. (Deuteronomy 14:26)  “And you shall use the silver for whatever your being desires: for cattle or sheep, for wine or strong drink, for whatever your being desires.

Release of Debts
(Deuteronomy 15:1)  “At the end of every seven years you make a release of debts(Deuteronomy 15:2)  “And this is the word of the release: Every creditor is to release what he has loaned to his neighbor; he does not require it of his neighbor or his brother, because it is called the release of יהוה(Deuteronomy 15:3)  “Of a foreigner you could require it, but your hand is to release whatever is owed by your brother. (Deuteronomy 15:4)  “Only, there should be no poor among you.

And he shall cry out to יהוה against you, and it shall be a sin in you. (Deuteronomy 15:10)  “You shall certainly give to him, and your heart should not be grieved when you give to him, because for this reason יהוה your Elohim does bless you in all your works and in all to which you put your hand. (Deuteronomy 15:11)  “The poor one does not cease from the land.

I expect “the” Month (not many months) of the Aviv starts the year…
(Deuteronomy 16:1)  Guard the month of Aḇiḇ, and perform the Passover to יהוה your Elohim, for in the month of Aḇiḇ יהוה your Elohim brought you out of Mitsrayim by night(Deuteronomy 16:2)  “And you shall slaughter the Passover to יהוה your Elohim, from the flock and the herd, in the place where יהוה chooses to put His Name. (Deuteronomy 16:3)  “Eat no leavened bread with it. For seven days you eat unleavened bread with it, bread of affliction, because you came out of the land of Mitsrayim in haste – so that you remember the day in which you came out of the land of Mitsrayim, all the days of your life. (Deuteronomy 16:4)  And no leaven should be seen with you in your entire border for seven days neither should any of the meat which you slaughter in the evening on the first day stay all night until morning(Deuteronomy 16:5)  “You are not allowed to slaughter the Passover within any of your gates which יהוה your Elohim gives you, (Deuteronomy 16:6)  but at the place where יהוה your Elohim chooses to make His Name dwell, there you slaughter the Passover in the evening, at the going down of the sun, at the appointed time you came out of Mitsrayim. (Deuteronomy 16:7)  “And you shall roast and eat it in the place which יהוה your Elohim chooses, and in the morning you shall turn and go to your tents. (Deuteronomy 16:8)  Six days you eat unleavened bread, and on the seventh day there is a closing festival to יהוה your Elohim – you do no work(Deuteronomy 16:9)  “Count seven weeks for yourself. Begin to count seven weeks from the time you begin to put the sickle to the grain. (Deuteronomy 16:10)  “And you shall perform the Festival of Weeks to יהוה your Elohim, according to the voluntary offering from your hand, which you give as יהוה your Elohim blesses you. (Deuteronomy 16:11)  “And you shall rejoice before יהוה your Elohim, you and your son and your daughter, and your male servant and your female servant, and the Lĕwite who is within your gates, and the stranger and the fatherless and the widow who are in your midst, at the place where יהוה your Elohim chooses to make His Name dwell. (Deuteronomy 16:12)  “And you shall remember that you were a slave in Mitsrayim, and you shall guard and do these laws. (Deuteronomy 16:13)  Perform the Festival of Booths for seven days after the ingathering from your threshing-floor and from your winepress, (Deuteronomy 16:14) and you shall rejoice in your festival, you and your son and your daughter, and your male servant and your female servant, and the Lĕwite, and the stranger and the fatherless and the widow who are within your gates(Deuteronomy 16:15) For seven days you shall observe a festival to יהוה your Elohim in the place which יהוה chooses, because יהוהyour Elohim does bless you in all your increase and in all the work of your hands, and you shall be only rejoicing(Deuteronomy 16:16)  Three times a year all your males appear before יהוה your Elohim in the place which He chooses: at the Festival of Unleavened Bread, and at the Festival of Weeks, and at the Festival of Booths.

Storms will come but look at these promises for us and our children! We must speak His word- it will produce what He sent it for! (Isaiah 55:11)
(Isaiah 54:11)  O you afflicted one, tossed with storm, and not comforted, see, I am setting your stones in antimony, and shall lay your foundations with sapphires, (Isaiah 54:12) and shall make your battlements of rubies, your gates of crystal, and all your walls of precious stones, (Isaiah 54:13) and all your children taught by יהוה, and the peace of your children great(Isaiah 54:14)  “In righteousness you shall be established – far from oppression, for you shall not fear, and far from ruin, for it does not come near you(Isaiah 54:15)  “See, they shall indeed assemble, but not because of me. Whoever shall assemble against you falls for your sake(Isaiah 54:16)  “See, I myself have created the blacksmith who blows the coals in the fire, who brings forth an instrument for his work. And I have created the waster to destroy. (Isaiah 54:17)  No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which raises against you in judgment you shall prove wrong. This is the inheritance of the servants of יהוה, and their righteousness from me,” declares יהוה. (Isaiah 55:1)  “Oh everyone who thirsts, come to the waters. And you who have no silver, come, buy and eat. Come buy wine and milk without silver and without price. (Isaiah 55:2)  “Why do you weigh out silver for what is not bread, and your labor for what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and let your being delight itself in fatness. (Isaiah 55:3)  “Incline your ear, and come to me. Hear so that your being lives. And let me make an everlasting covenant with you, the trustworthy kindnesses of Dawiḏ. (Isaiah 55:4)  “See, I have given Him as a witness to the people, a Leader and a Commander for the people. (Isaiah 55:5)  “See, a nation you do not know you shall call, and a nation who does not know you run to you, because of יהוה your Elohim, and the Set-apart One of Yisra’ĕl, for He has adorned you.” (Isaiah 55:6)  Seek יהוה while He is to be found, call on Him while He is near. (Isaiah 55:7)  Let the wrong forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts. Let him return to יהוה, who has compassion on him, and to our Elohim, for He pardons much(Isaiah 55:8)  For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares יהוה(Isaiah 55:9)  “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:10)  “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from the heavens, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, and give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, (Isaiah 55:11) so is my Word that goes forth from my mouth – it does not return to me empty, but shall do what I please, and shall certainly accomplish what I sent it for.
Beware, loved one, of the anti-messiah spirit- there is no other redeemer than Yahshua!
(1 John 4:1)  Beloved ones, do not believe every spirit, but prove the spirits, whether they are of Elohim, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. (1 John 4:2)  By this you know the Spirit of Elohim: Every spirit that confesses that יהושע Messiah has come in the flesh is of Elohim, (1 John 4:3) and every spirit that does not confess that יהושע Messiah has come in the flesh is not of Elohim. And this is the spirit of the anti-messiah which you heard is coming, and now is already in the world. (1 John 4:4)  You are of Elohim, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.1 Footnote: See Messiah in you in Explanatory Notes. (1 John 4:5)  They are of the world, therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. (1 John 4:6)  We are of Elohim – the one knowing Elohim hears us. He who is not of Elohim does not hear us. By this we know the Spirit of the Truth and the spirit of the delusion.
There is always deliverance and reward for those who help Yahweh’s anointed!
(2 Kings 4:1)  And a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets cried out to Elisha, saying, “Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that your servant feared יהוה. And the lender has come to take my two sons to be his slaves.” (2 Kings 4:2)  And Elisha said to her, “What should I do for you? Inform me, what do you have in the house?” And she said, “Your female servant has none at all in the house except a pot of oil.” (2 Kings 4:3)  And he said, “Go, borrow vessels from everywhere, from all your neighbors, empty vessels, do not get a few. (2 Kings 4:4)  “And when you have come in, you shall shut the door behind you and your sons. Then pour it into all those vessels, and set aside the filled ones.” (2 Kings 4:5)  So she went from him and shut the door behind her and her sons, who brought the vessels to her, and she poured it out. (2 Kings 4:6)  And it came to be, when the vessels were filled, that she said to her son, “Bring me another vessel.” But he said to her, “There is not another vessel.” And the oil ceased. (2 Kings 4:7)  So she went and informed the man of Elohim, and he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debt. And you and your sons live on the rest.” (2 Kings 4:8)  And it came to be on a day that Elisha went to Shunĕm, where there was a prominent woman, and she urged him to eat some food. And it came to be, as often as he passed by, that he turned in there to eat some food. (2 Kings 4:9)  And she said to her husband, “Look, I know that this is a set-apart man of Elohim, who passes by us continually. (2 Kings 4:10)  “Please, let us make a small upper room on the wall, and let us put a bed for him there, and a table and a chair and a lampstand. And it shall be, whenever he comes to us, let him turn in there.” (2 Kings 4:11)  And it came to be on a day that he came there, and he turned in to the upper room and lay down there. (2 Kings 4:12)  And he said to Gĕḥazi his servant, “Call this Shunammite woman.” So he called her, and she stood before him. (2 Kings 4:13)  And he said to him, “Please say to her, ‘Look, you have gone to all this trouble for us. What is there to be done for you? Should I speak on your behalf to the sovereign or to the commander of the army?’ ” And she answered, “I am dwelling among my own people.” (2 Kings 4:14)  And he said, “What then is to be done for her?” And Gĕḥazi answered, “Well, she has no son, and her husband is old.” (2 Kings 4:15)  And he said, “Call her.” So he called her, and she stood in the doorway. (2 Kings 4:16)  And he said, “About this time next year you shall embrace a son.” And she said, “No, my master, man of Elohim, do not lie to your female servant!” (2 Kings 4:17)  And the woman conceived, and bore a son when the appointed time had come, of which Elisha had spoken to her. (2 Kings 4:18)  And the child grew. And it came to be on a day that he went out to his father, to the reapers, (2 Kings 4:19) and he said to his father, “My head, my head!” And he said to a servant, “Take him to his mother.” (2 Kings 4:20)  So he took him and brought him to his mother, and he sat on her knees till noon, and died. (2 Kings 4:21)  And she went up and laid him on the bed of the man of Elohim, and shut the door on him, and went out. (2 Kings 4:22)  And she called to her husband, and said, “Please send me one of the young men and one of the donkeys, so that I hurry to the man of Elohim and return.” (2 Kings 4:23)  And he said, “Why are you going to him today? It is neither the New Moon nor the Sabbath.” And she said, “It is well!” (2 Kings 4:24) And she saddled the donkey and said to her servant, “Drive and go, do not slow down, except I speak to you.” (2 Kings 4:25)  And she went, and came to the man of Elohim at Mount Karmel. And it came to be, when the man of Elohim saw her at a distance that he said to his servant Gĕḥazi, “See, the Shunammite woman. (2 Kings 4:26) “Please run now to meet her, and say to her, ‘Is it well with you? Is it well with your husband? Is it well with the child?’ ” And she answered, “It is well.” (2 Kings 4:27)  And she came to the man of Elohim at the hill, and she caught him by the feet, but Gĕḥazi came near to push her away. But the man of Elohim said, “Leave her alone, for her being is bitter in her, and יהוה has hidden it from me, and has not revealed it to me.” (2 Kings 4:28)  And she said, “Did I ask a son of my master? Did I not say, ‘Do not deceive me’?” (2 Kings 4:29)  And he said to Gĕḥazi, “Gird up your loins, and take my staff in your hand, and go. When you meet anyone, do not greet him, and when anyone greets you, do not answer him. And you shall lay my staff on the face of the child.” (2 Kings 4:30)  And the mother of the child said, “As יהוה lives, and as your being lives, I do not leave you.” And he rose and followed her. (2 Kings 4:31)  And Gĕḥazi went on ahead of them, and laid the staff on the face of the child. But there was no voice and there was no hearing, so he went back to meet him, and reported to him, saying, “The child has not awakened.” (2 Kings 4:32)  And Elisha came into the house and saw the child was dead, lying on his bed, (2 Kings 4:33) and he went in, and shut the door behind the two of them, and prayed to יהוה(2 Kings 4:34)  And he went up and lay on the child, and put his mouth on his mouth, and his eyes on his eyes, and his hands on his hands, and stretched himself out on the child, and the flesh of the child became warm. (2 Kings 4:35)  And he returned and walked back and forth in the house, then went up and stretched himself out on him. And the child sneezed seven times, and the child opened his eyes. (2 Kings 4:36)  And he called Gĕḥazi and said, “Call this Shunammite.” So he called her. And she came in to him, and he said, “Pick up your son.” (2 Kings 4:37)  Then she went in and fell at his feet, and bowed herself to the ground, and picked up her son and went out. (2 Kings 4:38)  And Elisha returned to Gilgal. And the scarcity of food was in the land, and the sons of the prophets were sitting before him. And he said to his servant, “Put on the large pot, and cook stew for the sons of the prophets.” (2 Kings 4:39)  And one went out to the field to gather plants, and found a wild vine, and gathered wild cucumbers from it, filling the skirt of his garment, and came and sliced them into the pot of stew, though they did not know what they were. (2 Kings 4:40)  They then served it to the men to eat. And it came to be, as they were eating the stew, that they cried out and said, “O man of Elohim, there is death in the pot!” And they were unable to eat it. (2 Kings 4:41)  And he said, “Then bring some flour.” And he put it into the pot, and said, “Serve it to the people to eat.” And there was no evil matter in the pot. (2 Kings 4:42)  Now a man came from Baʽal Shalishah, and brought the man of Elohim bread of the first-fruits, twenty loaves of barley bread, and newly ripened grain in his knapsack. And he said, “Give it to the people to eat.” (2 Kings 4:43)  And his servant said, “What? Do I set this before one hundred men?” And he said, “Give it to the people to eat. For thus said יהוה, ‘Eat and have some left over.’ ” (2 Kings 4:44) and he set it before them, and they ate and had some left over, according to the word of יהוה.
Yahweh’s power is above all the standing armies- even today!
(2 Kings 5:1)  And Naʽaman, commander of the army of the sovereign of Aram, was a great man in the eyes of his master, and highly respected, because by him יהוה had given deliverance to Aram. And he was a brave man, but leprous.  (2 Kings 5:2)  And the Arameans had gone out on raids, and had brought back captive a young girl from the land of Yisra’ĕl, and she served the wife of Naʽaman. (2 Kings 5:3)  And she said to her mistress, “If only my master were with the prophet who is in Shomeron! Then he would recover him of his leprosy.” (2 Kings 5:4)  And Naʽaman went in and reported to his master, saying, “Thus and thus spoke the girl who is from the land of Yisra’ĕl.” (2 Kings 5:5)  And the sovereign of Aram said, “Go, enter, and let me send a letter to the sovereign of Yisra’ĕl.” And he went and took with him ten talents of silver, and six thousand pieces of gold, and ten changes of garments. (2 Kings 5:6)  And he brought the letter to the sovereign of Yisra’ĕl, which said, “And now, when this letter comes to you, see I have sent Naʽaman my servant to you, so that you shall recover him of his leprosy.” (2 Kings 5:7)  And it came to be, when the sovereign of Yisra’ĕl read the letter, that he tore his garments and said, “Am I Elohim, to kill and keep alive, that this man sends a man to me to recover him of his leprosy? For consider now, and see how he is seeking an occasion with me!” (2 Kings 5:8)  And it came to be, when Elisha the man of Elohim heard that the sovereign of Yisra’ĕl had torn his garments, that he sent to the sovereign, saying, “Why have you torn your garments? Please let him come to me, so that he knows that there is a prophet in Yisra’ĕl.” (2 Kings 5:9)  So Naʽaman came with his horses and chariot, and he stood at the entrance of the house of Elisha. (2 Kings 5:10)  And Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, “Go, and you shall wash seven times in the Yardĕn, that your flesh might be restored to you, and be clean.” (2 Kings 5:11)  But Naʽaman became wroth, and went away and said, “See, I said to myself, ‘He would certainly come out to me, and stand and call on the Name of יהוה his Elohim, and wave his hand over the place, and recover the leprosy.’ (2 Kings 5:12)  “Are not the Aḇanah and the Pharpar, the rivers of Dammeseq, better than all the waters of Yisra’ĕl? Could I not wash in them and be clean?” And he turned and went away in a rage. (2 Kings 5:13)  And his servants came near and spoke to him, and said, “My father, if the prophet had spoken to you a great matter, would you not have done it? How much more then, when he says to you, ‘Wash, and be clean’?” (2 Kings 5:14)  Then he went down and dipped seven times in the Yardĕn, according to the word of the man of Elohim. And his flesh was restored like the flesh of a little child, and he was clean. (2 Kings 5:15)  And he returned to the man of Elohim, he and all his company, and came and stood before him and said, “See, now I know that there is no Elohim in all the earth, except in Yisra’ĕl. And now, please take a gift from your servant.” (2 Kings 5:16)  But he said, “As יהוה lives, before whom I stand, I do not accept it.” And he pressed on him to accept it, but he refused. (2 Kings 5:17)  Then Naʽaman said, “If not, please let your servant be given two mule-loads of earth, for no longer is your servant going to make a burnt offering and slaughtering to other mighty ones, but to יהוה(2 Kings 5:18)  יהוה grant forgiveness to your servant in this matter: when my master goes into the house of Rimmon to worship there, and he leans on my hand, and I bow down in the house of Rimmon; when I bow down in the house of Rimmon, יהוה, please grant forgiveness to your servant in this matter.” (2 Kings 5:19)  Then he said to him, “Go in peace.” And when he had gone from him some distance, 
Servant of Yahweh- Do Not Sell Out For Money and Things!
(2 Kings 5:20)  But Gĕḥazi, the servant of Elisha the man of Elohim, said to himself, “Look, my master has spared Naʽaman this Aramean, while not receiving from his hands what he brought. But as יהוה lives, I shall run after him and take whatever from him.” (2 Kings 5:21)  And Gĕḥazi pursued Naʽaman. And when Naʽaman saw him running after him, he came down from the chariot to meet him, and said, “Is there peace?” (2 Kings 5:22)  And he said, “Peace. My master has sent me, saying, ‘Look, even now two young men of the sons of the prophets have come to me from the mountains of Ephrayim. Please give them a talent of silver and two changes of garments.’ ” (2 Kings 5:23) And Naʽaman said, “Please accept two talents.” And he urged him, and bound two talents of silver in two bags, with two changes of garments, and handed them to two of his servants. And they bare them ahead of him. (2 Kings 5:24)  And when he came to the high place, he took them from their hand, and stored them away in the house, and let the men go, and they went. (2 Kings 5:25)  And he went in and stood before his master, and Elisha said to him, “Where did you go, Gĕḥazi?” And he said, “Your servant did not go anywhere.” (2 Kings 5:26)  But he said to him, “Did not my heart go with you when the man turned back from his chariot to meet you? Is it time to accept silver and to accept garments, and olive-trees and vineyards, and sheep and cattle, and male and female servants? (2 Kings 5:27)  So let the leprosy of Naʽaman cling to you and your descendants forever.” And he went out from him as leprous as snow. (2 Kings 6:1)  And the sons of the prophets said to Elisha, “See, the place where we dwell with you is too small for us. (2 Kings 6:2)  “Please, let us go to the Yardĕn, and let every man take a log from there, and let us make there a place to dwell.” And he answered, “Go.” (2 Kings 6:3)  Then the one said, “Please undertake to go with your servants.” And he answered, “I shall go.” (2 Kings 6:4)  And he went with them, and they came to the Yardĕn, and they cut down trees. 
Yahweh can pay off our debts and know the enemy’s plans! Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world! This is good NEWS!
(2 Kings 6:5)  And it came to be, as one was cutting down a tree that the iron axe head fell into the water. And he cried out and said, “Oh my master, for it was borrowed!” (2 Kings 6:6)  And the man of Elohim said, “Where did it fall?” And he showed him the place. And he cut off a stick, and threw it in there, and made the iron float(2 Kings 6:7)  And he said, “Pick it up.” And he reached out his hand and took it(2 Kings 6:8)  And the sovereign of Aram was fighting against Yisra’ĕl, and took counsel with his servants, saying, “My camp is in such and such a place.” (2 Kings 6:9)  And the man of Elohim sent to the sovereign of Yisra’ĕl, saying, “Be on guard, do not pass this place, for the Arameans are coming down there.” (2 Kings 6:10)  The sovereign of Yisra’ĕl then sent to the place of which the man of Elohim had spoken to him, and warned him, so that he was on his guard there, not once, and not twice. (2 Kings 6:11)  And this greatly troubled the heart of the sovereign of Aram. And he called his servants and said to them, “Declare to me! Who among us is for the sovereign (King) of Yisra’ĕl?” (2 Kings 6:12)  And one of his servants said, “None, my master, O sovereign, for Elisha, the prophet who is in Yisra’ĕl, declares to the sovereign of Yisra’ĕl the words that you speak in your bedroom.” (2 Kings 6:13)  And he said, “Go and see where he is, so that I send and get him.” And it was reported to him, saying, “See, he is in Dothan.” (2 Kings 6:14)  And he sent horses and chariots and a great army there, and they came by night and surrounded the city. (2 Kings 6:15)  And the servant of the man of Elohim rose early and went out, and saw an army, surrounding the city with horses and chariots. And his servant said to him, “Oh, my master! What do we do?” (2 Kings 6:16)  And he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” (2 Kings 6:17)  And Elisha prayed, and said, “יהוה, I pray, open his eyes and let him see.” And יהוה opened the eyes of the young man, and he looked and saw the mountain covered with horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha(2 Kings 6:18)  And when they came down to him, Elisha prayed to יהוה, and said, “Strike this nation with blindness, I pray.” And He struck them with blindness according to the word of Elisha(2 Kings 6:19)  And Elisha said to them, “This is not the way, nor is this the city. Follow me, and let me bring you to the man whom you seek.” But he led them to Shomeron. (2 Kings 6:20)  And it came to be, when they had come to Shomeron, that Elisha said, “יהוה, open the eyes of these men so that they see.” And יהוה opened their eyes, and they looked and saw they were in the midst of Shomeron! (2 Kings 6:21)  And when the sovereign of Yisra’ĕl saw them, he said to Elisha, “My father, should I smite? Should I smite?” (2 Kings 6:22)  But he said, “Do not smite. Do you smite those whom you have taken captive with your sword and your bow? Set food and water before them and let them eat and drink and go to their master.” (2 Kings 6:23)  And he made a great feast for them. And after they ate and drank, he let them go, and they went to their master. And the bands of Aramean raiders came no more into the land of Yisra’ĕl. (2 Kings 6:24)  And after this it came to be that Ben-Haḏaḏ the sovereign of Aram mustered all his army, and went up and besieged Shomeron.
Famine in the land is promised those nations who turn from YHWH! Uhhh- O!
 (2 Kings 6:25)  And there was a great scarcity of food in Shomeron. And see, they besieged it until a donkey’s head went at eighty pieces of silver, and one-fourth of a kab of dove droppings for five pieces of silver. (2 Kings 6:26)  And it came to be, as the sovereign of Yisra’ĕl was passing by on the wall, a woman cried out to him, saying, “Help, my master, O sovereign!” (2 Kings 6:27)  And he said, “If יהוה does not help you, where do I find help for you; from the threshing floor or from the winepress?” (2 Kings 6:28)  And the sovereign said to her, “What is troubling you?” And she answered, “This woman said to me, ‘Give your son and let us eat him today, and tomorrow we eat my son.’ (2 Kings 6:29)  “So we cooked my son, and ate him. And I said to her on the next day, ‘Give your son and let us eat him.’ But she has hidden her son.” (2 Kings 6:30)  And it came to be, when the sovereign heard the words of the woman, that he tore his garments. And as he passed by on the wall, the people looked and saw the sackcloth on his body, underneath. (2 Kings 6:31)  And he said, “Elohim do so to me and more also, if the head of Elisha son of Shaphat remains on him today.” (2 Kings 6:32)  And Elisha was sitting in his house, and the elders were sitting with him. And the sovereign sent a man ahead of him, but before the messenger came to him, he said to the elders, “Do you see how this son of a murderer has sent someone to take away my head? Look, when the messenger comes, shut the door, and hold him fast at the door. Is not the sound of his master’s feet behind him?” (2 Kings 6:33)  While he was still speaking with them, then see, the messenger came down to him, and he said, “Look, this evil is from יהוה, why should I wait for יהוה any longer?”

Why we are on a different schedule of the Torah Cycle than the mainstream and the Orthodox. For me it is about restoration of all things- which sometimes means 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 Yahwehs 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 again together; (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 from all languages of the nations take hold, yea; they shall take hold of the edge of the garment of a man, a Yehuḏite 1, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that Elohim is with you.” ’ ” Footnote: John 4:22.
