Shabbat Shalom Loved One!  

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
Loved One, last week we reminded ourselves of our need to personally TESHUVA- repent; that is turn around and obey Him from a willing heart by submitting to His words and instructions! We also studied about the blessing of receiving the power of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) to direct our tongues and lives. After a short review, we will move quickly to what I will share.
James 4:7 So then subject (Submit to His word/instruction) yourselves to Elohim. Resist the devil b and he shall flee from youFootnote: 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: Remember 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.”
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.
Here is how we become His WITNESSES that we may produce fruit as remaining in Him and He in us- the HOPE of Glory!
Act 1:8 But you will receive power when the Ruach ha-Kodesh has come upon you; and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and through all Judah, and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.  
That completes our review; I hope you enjoy what our study is today as much as I have!
Today I want to touch on a message I heard recently by a Cowboy Church preacher named Daniel who is a trusted friend, or as my daddy would have spoken- he is someone you “could ride the river with”.  That statement back in dad’s day (My dad was a cowboy and “river rider”) meant someone you would trust your life to in the dangers of horseback patrols on the Mexican border- where smuggling of cattle, people and drugs could quickly become life threatening. 
Daniel shared about the “ROUND PEN”. Many of you know about a round pen, where it is often used to train or break horses, but I maybe I can better explain by attempting to paint a picture for us. 
Once you had a wild horse in the pen with a rope or hackamore around his neck or head, the wild horse would continually be circling with the trainer or “bronc breaker” in the middle of the pen holding the rope. The horse, independent and seeking his continued freedom would run around as far outside of the ROUND PEN that he could- still confined to the pen- (No corners for escaping into) always looking outward for a means of escape- maybe even trying to jump the fence several times. His attention would be to find a means of escape, where he alone, being FREE, would determine his actions. 
Normally, not until the horse was exhausted would he ever turn and see what controls or restrains him- then he might slow down and think- for just a moment turning his attention to who holds the rope- to see who or what is doing this control. Eye contact is made and the budding of a relationship has begun, no matter how long it takes the horse to trust and understand that it will be okay- that the restrainer is in control and can be trusted.
Sometimes Yahweh does that to His Creation. Some of us- His creation, want to do our own thing- in absolute rebellion to the Creator’s instruction. Some of us want to hide in religion, or some form of it in a corner, so to speak. We want to be among others of “like minded faith” even if we are not walking in love, (Especially to those not of our like-minded group and understanding) which Yahshua describes as the only way He will know us. Or perhaps we are running from His control all together- demanding our freedom- from anyone – even Yahweh who loves us and has given us enough rope to run from Him or hide in a corner somewhere doing what WE decide is important for our lives. 
With this background in mind, let’s look at a chapter in the Bible I love, you also likely love, and Daniel the Cowboy preacher friend of mine loves. I will write short comments throughout the scripture to try and help you generate your own thoughts that Yahweh gives us freely when we seek Him- as the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) will guide us into all truth and teach us. So we start by asking the Ruach to do just that- teach us about these scriptures that Yahshua is teaching us.
I Am the True Vine 
John 15:1 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the gardener. John 15:2 “Every branch in me that bears no fruit He takes away. And every branch that bears fruit He prunes, so that it bears more fruit. John 15:3 “You are already clean because of the Word which I have spoken to you. John 15:4 “Stay in me, and I stay in you. As the branch is unable to bear fruit of itself, unless it stays in the vine, so neither you, unless you stay in me. John 15:5“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who stays in me, and I in him, he bears much fruit. Because without me you are able to do naught! John 15:6 “If anyone does not stay in me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up. And they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. (Comment: This tells us that IF we will NOT TESHUVA/REPENT, at the end of life’s race- we will be thrown into hell’s fire. If we continue to try and jump the fence- He will allow us to go around the pen again- I liken the fence to the Instructions/Torah/Law which is there to protect us from sin and our own destruction) John 15:7 “If you stay in me, and My Words stay in you, you shall ask whatever you wish, and it shall be done for you. John 15:8 “In this My Father is esteemed, that you bear much fruit, and you shall be my taught onesJohn 15:9 “As the Father has loved me, I have also loved you. Stay in my love. John 15:10 “If you guard my commands, you shall stay in my love, a even as I have guarded My Father’s commands and stay in His love. (Yahshua tells us straight forward in John 14:21 that IF we love Him we will obey Him and we know also that the Ruach HaKodesh is given to them that LOVE HIM, as ACTS 5:32 shares) Footnote: See John_14:15John 15:11 “These words I have spoken to you, so that my joy might be in you, and that your joy might be complete. John 15:12 “This is my command, that you love one another, as I have loved you.b Footnote: See John_13:34 and John_15:17John 15:13 “No one has greater love than this: that one should lay down his life for his friends. (Note that obedience guarantees that we are graduated from Servants to His FRIENDS) John 15:14 “You are my friends if you do whatever I command you. John 15:15 “No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing. But I have called you friends, for all teachings which I heard from My Father I have made known to youJohn 15:16  “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in My Name He might give you. John 15:17 “These words I command you, so that you love one another.c Footnote: See John_13:34 and John_15:12
The Hatred of the World 
John 15:18 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated me before it hated you. John 15:19 “If you were of the world, the world would love its own. But because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, for that reason the world hates you. (The SPIRIT OF REBELLION hates Yahweh and submitting to Him) John 15:20 “Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they shall persecute you too. If they have guarded My Word, they would guard yours too. John 15:21 “But all this they shall do to you because of My Name, because they do not know Him who sent me. John 15:22  “If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. John 15:23“He who hates me hates My Father as well. John 15:24 “If I did not do among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin. But now they have both seen and have hated both me and My Father, John 15:25 but...that the word might be filled which was written in their Torah, They hated me without a cause.’ Psalms_35:19Psalms_69:4. John 15:26  And when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of the Truth, who comes from the Father, He shall bear witness of me, John 15:27  but you also bear witness, because you have been with me from the beginning.  (Note that as we allow the Ruach- Holy Spirit to direct and teach us- as we submit to Him we will be His WITNESSES as we will share His goodness and love with others and BEAR WITNESS)
My prayer for you beloved- I come in agreement with you
Father, I ask according to your goodness and mercy as I come to your Throne room, covered with the shed blood of Yahshua, with a set-apart BOLDNESS and CONFIDENCE in You! Establish now my brother or sister in your divine righteousness as they have determined in their own hearts to look toward the center of the ROUND PEN and see your goodness and mercy. This is what Moses saw when he asked to see your glory Father, your goodness and mercy. Once we look toward you intensely, your goodness and mercy is revealed. From this day forward we are established in your righteousness, first of all by Your selfless sacrifice, and second, because we have departed from rebellion to follow your Kingdom. I decree agreement with all who will, whosoever will; that all your blessings will overtake us, and declare your mercy will rest on our generations. 
Isaiah 59:19-21
So shall they fear the name and hold in high esteem the name of Yahweh from the west and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in, like a flood the Ruach HaKodesh will raise a standard against him. The redeemer shall come from Zion, and to these, who have turned from transgression in Jacob, says Yahweh. As for me this is my covenant with them declares Yahweh, My Ruach that is upon them and My words which they have put in their mouth, shall not depart out of your mouth or from your seed’s mouth, nor touch the mouth of your seed’s seed, declares Yahweh, from now and forever!
HalleluYAH! HalleluYAH! HalleluYAH!
Loved One- we are NOW manifesting as the sons and daughters of the Creator as we 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! 
James 4:7 Submit then, to Yahweh. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:8 Come near to Yahweh and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. James 4:9 Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. James 4:10 Humble yourselves before Yahweh, and He will lift you up. 
(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: 1See 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.
Here are this Week’s Torah Scriptures:  Shoftim
Deuteronomy 16:18-21:9; Isaiah 51:12-52:15; (Extended); 1 Corinthians 5:9-13
(Deuteronomy 16:18)  “Appoint judges and officers within all your gates, which יהוה your Elohim is giving you, according to your tribes. And they shall judge the people with righteous right-ruling. (Deuteronomy 16:19)  “Do not distort right-ruling. Do not show partiality, nor take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the righteous. (Deuteronomy 16:20)  “Follow righteousness, righteousness alone, so that you live and inherit the land which יהוה your Elohim is giving you. (Deuteronomy 16:21)  “Do not plant for yourself any tree as an Ashĕrah (Easters) near the altar of יהוה your Elohim that you make for yourself. (Deuteronomy 16:22)  “And do not set up a pillar, which יהוה your Elohim hates. 

(Deuteronomy 17:1)  “Do not slaughter to יהוה your Elohim a bull or sheep which has any blemish, any evil matter, for that is an abomination to יהוה your Elohim. (Comment: this is why Yahshua had to be inspected and declared by Pilate- “I find NO FAULT” in Him; as He had to be a perfect slaughter Lamb without blemish) (Deuteronomy 17:2)  “When there is found in your midst, in any of your cities which יהוה your Elohim is giving you, a man or a woman who does what is evil in the eyes of יהוה your Elohim, in transgressing His covenant, (Deuteronomy 17:3)  and has gone and served other mighty ones and bowed down to them, or to the sun or to the moon or to any of the host of the heavens, which I have not commanded, (Deuteronomy 17:4)  and it has been made known to you and you have heard, and has searched diligently. Then see, if true: the matter is confirmed that such an abomination has been done in Yisra’ĕl, (Deuteronomy 17:5) then you shall bring out to your gates that man or woman who has done this evil matter, and you shall stone to death that man or woman with stones. (Comment: Note below the requirement for 2 or 3 eye witnesses- as anything else is a FALSE witness and still applies to the right rulings of Heaven today made on our behalf) (Deuteronomy 17:6)  “At the mouth of two or three witnesses shall he that is to die be put to death. He is not put to death by the mouth of one witness. (Deuteronomy 17:7)  “The hand of the witnesses shall be first against him to put him to death, and the hand of all the people last. So you shall purge the evil from your midst. (Deuteronomy 17:8)  “When any matter arises which is too hard for you to judge, between blood and blood, between plea and plea, or between stroke and stroke – matters of strife within your gates – then you shall rise and go up to the place which יהוה your Elohim chooses, (Deuteronomy 17:9) and shall come to the priests, the Lĕwites, and to the judge who is in those days, and shall inquire. And they shall declare to you the word of right-ruling, (Deuteronomy 17:10) and you shall do according to the word which they declare to you from that place which יהוה chooses. And you shall guard to do according to all that they instruct you. (Deuteronomy 17:11)  “You do according to the Torah in which they teach you, according to the right-ruling which they say to you. You do not turn to the right or to the left from the word which they declare to you. (Deuteronomy 17:12)  “And the man who acts arrogantly, so as not to listen to the priest who stands to serve there before יהוה your Elohim, or to the judge, that man shall die. So you shall purge the evil from Yisra’ĕl. (Deuteronomy 17:13)  “And let all the people hear and fear, and no longer do arrogantly. (Deuteronomy 17:14)  “When you come to the land which יהוה your Elohim is giving you, and shall possess it and shall dwell in it, and you shall say, ‘Let me set a sovereign over me like all the gentiles that are around me,’ (Deuteronomy 17:15)  you shall certainly set a sovereign over you whom יהוה your Elohim shall choose. Set a sovereign over you from among your brothers, you are not allowed to set a foreigner over you, who is not your brother. (Deuteronomy 17:16)  “Only, he is not to increase horses for himself, nor cause the people to return to Mitsrayim to increase horses, for יהוה has said to you ‘Do not return that way again.’ (Deuteronomy 17:17)  “And he is not to increase wives for himself, lest his heart turn away, nor is he to greatly increase silver and gold for himself. (Deuteronomy 17:18)  “And it shall be, when he sits on the throne of his reign, that he shall write for himself a copy of this Torah in a book, from the one before the priests, the Lĕwites. (Deuteronomy 17:19)  “And it shall be with him, and he shall read it all the days of his life, so that he learns to fear יהוה his Elohim and guard all the Words of this Torah and these laws, to do them, (Deuteronomy 17:20)  so that his heart is not lifted up above his brothers, and so as not to turn aside from the command, right or left, so that he prolongs his days in his reign, he and his children, in the midst of Yisra’ĕl.
YHWH is the inheritance for the true Levite Priests-
(Deuteronomy 18:1) “The priests, the Lĕwites, all the tribe of Lĕwi, have neither part nor inheritance with Yisra’ĕl. They are to eat the offerings of יהוה made by fire, and His inheritance. (Deuteronomy 18:2)  “But among his brothers Lĕwi has no inheritance. יהוה is his inheritance, as He has spoken to him. (Deuteronomy 18:3)  “And this is the priest’s right from the people, from those who bring an offering, whether it is bull or sheep: they shall give to the priest the shoulder, and the two cheeks, and the stomach; (Deuteronomy 18:4) the first-fruits of your grain and your new wine and your oil, and the first of the fleece of your sheep, you give to him. (Deuteronomy 18:5)  “For יהוה your Elohim has chosen him out of all your tribes to stand to serve in the Name of יהוה, him and his sons forever. (Deuteronomy 18:6)  “And when the Lĕwite comes from one of your gates, from where he has sojourned among all Yisra’ĕl, and shall come with all the desire of his being to the place which יהוה chooses, (Deuteronomy 18:7)  then he shall serve in the Name of יהוה his Elohim, like all his brothers the Lĕwites, who are standing there before יהוה(Deuteronomy 18:8)  “They are to have portion for portion to eat, besides what comes from the sale of his inheritance. (Deuteronomy 18:9)  “When you come into the land which יהוה your Elohim is giving you, do not learn to do according to the abominations of those gentiles(Comment: that’s what we have done in Christianity- learned the way of the heathens and said we were “taking them over” for Him! - YIKES!) 
Should there even be such a thing as “Christian” Magicians? How about talking to dead relatives and loved ones?
(Deuteronomy 18:10)  “Let no one be found among you who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices divination, or a user of magic, or one who interprets omens or a sorcerer,(Deuteronomy 18:11)  or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead.(Deuteronomy 18:12)  “For whoever does these are an abomination to יהוה, and because of these abomination יהוהו our Elohim drives them out from before you. (Deuteronomy 18:13)  “Be perfect before יהוה your Elohim, (Deuteronomy 18:14) for these nations whom you are possessing do listen to those using magic and to diviners. But as for you, יהוה your Elohim has not appointed such for you. (Deuteronomy 18:15)  יהוה your Elohim shall raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brothers. Listen to Him, (Yahshua) (Deuteronomy 18:16)  according to all you asked of יהוה your Elohim in Ḥorĕḇ in the day of the assembly, saying, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of יהוה my Elohim, nor let me see this great fire any more, lest I die.’ (Deuteronomy 18:17)  “And יהוה said to me, ‘What they have spoken is good. (Deuteronomy 18:18)  ‘I shall raise up for them a Prophet like you out of the midst of their brothers. And I shall put My Words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. (Deuteronomy 18:19)  ‘And it shall be, the man who does not listen to My Words which He speaks in My Name, I require it of him. (Deuteronomy 18:20)  ‘But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in My Name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other mighty ones, even that prophet shall die.’ (Deuteronomy 18:21)  “When you say in your heart ‘How do we know the word which יהוה has not spoken?’ – (Deuteronomy 18:22) when the prophet speaks in the Name of יהוה and the word is not, or comes not, that is the word which יהוה has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him. 
Cities of REFUGE! Interesting places as we will see these worldwide when they are needed…
(Deuteronomy 19:1)  “When יהוה your Elohim cuts off the nations whose land יהוה your Elohim is giving you and you dispossess them and dwell in their cities and in their houses, (Deuteronomy 19:2)  separate three cities for yourself in the midst of your land which יהוה your Elohim is giving you to possess. (Deuteronomy 19:3)  “Prepare a way for yourself, and divide into three parts the border of your land which יהוה your Elohim is giving you to inherit, that anyone who killed someone shall flee there. (Deuteronomy 19:4)  “And this is the matter of the one who killed someone who flees there and live: He who smites his neighbor unintentionally, not having hated him in time past, (Deuteronomy 19:5)  even he who goes to the forest with his neighbor to cut timber, and his hand swings a stroke with the axe to cut down the tree, and the head slips from the handle and strikes his neighbor so that he dies – let him flee to one of these cities and live, (Deuteronomy 19:6)  lest the revenger of blood, while his displeasure is hot, pursue the one who killed someone and overtake him, because the way is long, and shall smite him, though he was not worthy of death, since he had not hated him before. (Deuteronomy 19:7)  “Therefore I am commanding you, saying, ‘Separate three cities for yourself.’ (Deuteronomy 19:8)  “And if יהוה your Elohim enlarges your border, as He swore to your fathers, and has given you the land which He promised to give to your fathers – (Deuteronomy 19:9)  when you guard all this command to do it, which I am commanding you today, to love יהוה your Elohim and to walk in His ways all the days – then you shall add three more cities for yourself besides these three, (Deuteronomy 19:10)  so that innocent blood is not shed in the midst of your land which יהוה your Elohim is giving you as an inheritance, or blood-guilt shall be upon you. (Deuteronomy 19:11)  “But when anyone hates his neighbor, and shall lie in wait for him and rise against him and smite the life from him so that he dies, then he shall flee to one of these cities, (Deuteronomy 19:12) and the elders of his city shall send and bring him from there, and give him into the hand of the revenger of blood, and he shall die. (Deuteronomy 19:13)  “Your eye shall not pardon him, but you shall purge the blood of innocent blood from Yisra’ĕl, so that it might be well with you. (Deuteronomy 19:14)  “Do not remove your neighbor’s boundary, which those in the past have set, in your inheritance which you inherit in the land that יהוה your Elohim is giving you to possess. (Deuteronomy 19:15)  “One witness does not rise up against a man concerning any crookedness or any sin that he commits. At the mouth of two witnesses or at the mouth of three witnesses a matter is established. (Deuteronomy 19:16)  “When a malicious witness rises up against any man to accuse him of turning aside, (Deuteronomy 19:17) then both men who have the dispute shall stand before יהוה, before the priests and the judges who serve in those days. (Deuteronomy 19:18)  “And the judges shall diligently search and see if the witness is a false witness, who has falsely accused his brother, (Deuteronomy 19:19) then you shall do to him as he thought to have done to his brother. Thus you shall purge the evil from your midst. (Deuteronomy 19:20)  “And let the rest hear and fear, and never again do this evil matter in your midst. (Deuteronomy 19:21)  “And let your eye not pardon, life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, and foot for foot. 
(Deuteronomy 20:1)  When you go out to battle against your enemies, and shall see horses and chariots and people more numerous than you, do not be afraid of them, for יהוה your Elohim, who brought you up from the land of Mitsrayim, is with you. (Deuteronomy 20:2)  “And it shall be, when you draw near to the battle, that the priest shall come and speak to the people, (Deuteronomy 20:3)  and shall say to them, ‘Hear, O Yisra’ĕl: You are drawing near today to battle with your enemies. Do not let your heart faint, do not fear, or tremble, or be afraid before them, (Deuteronomy 20:4)  for יהוה your Elohim is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.’ (Deuteronomy 20:5)  “And the officers shall speak to the people, saying, ‘Who is the man who has built a new house and has not dedicated it? Let him go and return to his house, lest he die in the battle and another man dedicate it. (Deuteronomy 20:6)  ‘And who is the man who has planted a vineyard and has not begun to use it? Let him also go and return to his house, lest he die in the battle and another man should begin to use it. (Deuteronomy 20:7)  ‘And who is the man who is engaged to a woman and has not taken her? Let him go and return to his house, lest he die in the battle and another man take her.’ (Deuteronomy 20:8)  “And the officers shall speak further to the people, and say, ‘Who is the man who is afraid and tender of heart? Let him go and return to his house, lest the heart of his brothers faint like his heart.’ (Deuteronomy 20:9) “And it shall be, when the officers have finished speaking to the people, that they shall appoint commanders of the divisions to lead the people. (Deuteronomy 20:10)  “When you draw near to a city to fight against it, then you shall make a call for peace to it. (Deuteronomy 20:11)  “And it shall be that if it accepts your call for peace, and shall open to you, then all the people found in it are to be your compulsory labor, and serve you. (Deuteronomy 20:12)  “But if it does not make peace with you, and shall fight against you, then you shall besiege it, (Deuteronomy 20:13) and יהוה your Elohim shall give it into your hands, and you shall smite every male in it with the edge of the sword. (Deuteronomy 20:14)  “Only the women, and the little ones, and the livestock, and all that is in the city, all its spoil, you take as plunder for yourself. And you shall eat the enemies’ plunder which יהוהyour Elohim gives you. (Deuteronomy 20:15)  “Do so to all the cities which are very far from you, which are not of the cities of these nations. (Deuteronomy 20:16)  “Only, of the cities of these peoples which יהוה your Elohim gives you as an inheritance, you do not keep alive any that breathe, (Deuteronomy 20:17)  but you shall certainly put them under the ban: the Ḥittite and the Amorite and the Kenaʽanite and the Perizzite and the Ḥiwwite and the Yeḇusite, as יהוה your Elohim has commanded you, (Deuteronomy 20:18)  lest they teach you to do according to all their abominations which they have done for their mighty ones, and you sin against יהוה your Elohim. (Deuteronomy 20:19)  “When you besiege a city for a long time by fighting against it to take it, you do not destroy its trees by wielding an axe against them. If you do eat of them, do not cut them down. For is the tree of the field a man to be besieged by you? (Deuteronomy 20:20)  “Only the trees which you know are not trees for food you do destroy and cut down, to build siege-works against the city that is fighting against you, until it falls. 
Innocent Blood= Guilt (So easy to think of hundreds of millions of aborted babies that their blood cries from the ground against us!)
(Deuteronomy 21:1)  “When anyone is found slain, lying in the field in the land which יהוה your Elohim is giving you to possess, and it is not known who smote him, (Deuteronomy 21:2)  then your elders and your judges shall go out, and they shall measure the distance from the slain man to the cities round about. (Deuteronomy 21:3) “And it shall be that the elders of the city nearest to the slain man shall take a heifer which has not been worked and which has not pulled with a yoke, (Deuteronomy 21:4) and the elders of that city shall bring the heifer down to a wadi with flowing water, which is neither plowed nor sown, and they shall break the heifer’s neck there in the wadi (Canyon)(Deuteronomy 21:5)  “And the priests, the sons of Lĕwi, shall come near, for יהוה your Elohim has chosen them to serve Him and to bless in the Name of יהוה, and by their mouth every strife and every stroke is tried(Deuteronomy 21:6)  “And let all the elders of that city nearest to the slain man wash their hands over the heifer whose neck was broken in the wadi. (Deuteronomy 21:7)  “And they shall answer and say, ‘Our hands have not shed this blood, nor have our eyes seen it. (Deuteronomy 21:8)  יהוה, forgive your people Yisra’ĕl, whom you have redeemed, and do not allow innocent blood in the midst of your people Yisra’ĕl.’ And the blood-guilt shall be pardoned to them(Deuteronomy 21:9)  “Thus you purge the guilt of innocent blood from your midst when you do what is right in the eyes of יהוה
Clean up from paganism and be comforted! Hallelu-YAH!
(Isaiah 51:12)  “I, I am He who comforts you. Who are you that you should be afraid of man that dies, and of the son of man who is made like grass? (Isaiah 51:13)  “And you have forgotten יהוה your Maker who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth, and you continually fear, all the day, because of the rage of the oppressor, as he has prepared to destroy. And where is the rage of the oppressor? (Isaiah 51:14)  “Bowed, he hastens to be loosened, that he should not die in the pit, and that his bread should not fail. (Isaiah 51:15)  “But I am יהוה your Elohim, stirring up the sea, and its waves roar. יהוה of hosts is His Name.(Isaiah 51:16)  “And I have put My Words in your mouth, and with the shadow of my hand I have covered you, to plant the heavens and lay the foundations of the earth, and to say to Tsiyon, ‘You are my people.’ ” (Isaiah 51:17) Awake, awake yourself! Rise up, O Yerushalayim, you who have drunk at the hand of יהוה the cup of His wrath. You have drunk the dregs of the cup of reeling, and drained it out. (Isaiah 51:18)  Of all the sons she bore, she has none to guide her. And of all the sons she has brought up, none takes her by the hand. (Isaiah 51:19)  Both these are coming upon you – who is sorry for you? Ruin and destruction, scarcity of food and sword. How shall I comfort you? (Isaiah 51:20)  Your sons have fainted; they lie at the head of all the streets, like a gazelle in a net. They are filled with the wrath of יהוה, the rebuke of your Elohim. (Isaiah 51:21)  Therefore please hear this, you afflicted and drunk, but not with wine. (Isaiah 51:22)  Thus said your Master, יהוה and your Elohim, who pleads the cause of His people, “See, I shall take out of your hand the cup of reeling, the dregs of the cup of my wrath – never again shall you drink it. (Isaiah 51:23)  “And I shall put it into the hand of those who afflict you, who have said to your being, ‘Bow down, and we pass over you.’ And you made your back like the ground, and as the street, to walk over.” (Isaiah 52:1)  Awake, awake! Put on your strength, O Tsiyon put on your garments of splendor, O Yerushalayim, the set-apart city! For no more do the uncircumcised and the unclean come into you. (Isaiah 52:2)  Shake yourself from the dust, arise, and sit down, O Yerushalayim. Loose yourself from the bonds of your neck, O captive daughter of Tsiyon! (Isaiah 52:3)  For thus said יהוה, “You have been sold for naught, and you are redeemed not with silver.” (Isaiah 52:4)  For thus said the Master יהוה, “At first my people went down into Mitsrayim to sojourn there and Ashshur oppressed them without cause. (Isaiah 52:5)  “And now, what have I here,” declares יהוה, “that my people are taken away for naught? Those who rule over them make them wail,” declares יהוה, “and My Name is despised all day continually. (Isaiah 52:6)  “Therefore My people shall know My Name, in that day, for I am the One who is speaking. See, it is I.” (Isaiah 52:7)  How pleasant upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings good news, who proclaims deliverance, who says to Tsiyon, “Your Elohim reigns!” (Isaiah 52:8)  The voice of your watchmen! They shall lift up their voices, together they shout for joy, because eye to eye they see the return of יהוה to Tsiyon. (Isaiah 52:9)  Break forth into joy; sing together, you waste places of Yerushalayim! For יהוה shall comfort His people, He shall redeem Yerushalayim. (Isaiah 52:10) יהוה shall lay bare His set-apart arm in the eyes of all the nations. And all the ends of the earth shall see the deliverance of our Elohim. (Isaiah 52:11)  Turn aside! Turn aside! Come out from there, touch not the uncleanCome out of her midst, be clean, you who bear the vessels of יהוה. (Isaiah 52:12)  For you shall not come out in haste, nor go in flight. For יהוה is going before you, and the Elohim of Yisra’ĕl is your rear guard. (Isaiah 52:13)  See, My Servant shall work wisely; He shall be exalted and lifted up and very high. (Isaiah 52:14)  As many were astonished at you – so the disfigurement beyond any man’s and His form beyond the sons of men – (Isaiah 52:15) He shall likewise startle many nations. Sovereigns shut their mouths at Him, for what had not been recounted to them they shall see, and what they had not heard they shall understand.
Flee harlotry and the ways of this world!
(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 (Comment: 3 strong traps of hasatan) – 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.
Come out of her- spiritually, soul (mentally and culture) and physically- body! Even those claiming to be among the Body of Messiah-
(1 Corinthians 5:9)  I wrote to you in my letter not to keep company with those who whore. (1 Corinthians 5:10) And I certainly did not mean with those of this world who whore, or with the greedy of gain, or swindlers, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. (1 Corinthians 5:11)  But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone called ‘a brother,’ if he is one who whores, or greedy of gain, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler – not even to eat with such a one(1 Corinthians 5:12)  For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Do you not judge those who are inside? (1 Corinthians 5:13)  But Elohim judges those who are outside. And put away the wicked one from among you!
Loved One, I pray YOU and I ask the Father if there is ANYTHING that we must change before we stand in His awesome presence and that we make every effort to love the Creator according to His desires and methods- this would obviously include dealing with our rebellion and lack of submitting to His word! I pray you and I gain an ear to hear Him and the courage to obey Him- especially as we deal with our own iniquities and rebellion we have inherited and likely passed down to our heirs! Thanks for your continued prayers for Billie and me- they are cherished- as followers of Messiah, we often walk apart from family and friends, and it is not always easy- SO I ENCOURAGE YOU: KEEP THE FAITH and ONLY BELIEVE AND SPEAK AND DO HIS WORDS with Billie and me. Thank you as you are really special to us and much loved!
Shalom to your heart and home loved ones!
Again, 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 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 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 from here forward!) Ten men(Comment: 10 Northern Tribes who are Ephraim scattered all over the earth as Christians mostly repenting) 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: John 4:22
