Blood Moons and Yahweh's Biblical Videophone to those watching

http://www.elshaddaiministries.us/video/eclipsevideo_n.html (Download the entire video click here)

Pastor Mark Biltz has never said that the Lord is returning due to these events. He does suggest however that we, who are called by his name, PAY ATTENTION!

A Time To Be Still


I have pulled back from the manner in which I have been doing things.....Not because of a failure or lack of insight but rather because my spirit is in turmoil about being the servant to the coming kingdom that is soon to be announced via Messiah. Insofar as many Jewish people do not see the 2nd return and many Christians do not see the JEWISH King...I realize that this is the hand of Elohim that
causes this partial blindness in both camps. I think that God is pulling folks (like me) out of this blind spot for reasons that he will continue to reveal. My spirit keeps telling me to study, study, study...and so far I am being directed to the Book of Joshua for months now.........

I am also hearing in my spirit to practice humility not due to the lack of it but rather because this is quintessential in mimicking YHWH. In everything, he presented to a fallen man his humility in the very restoration of the nations and Israel. He is presenting to creation, all of creation an opportunity to return to what HE is doing....

This is bigger than making any one point or descending into right or wrong bickering.......

I changed my page and am relocating my thoughts back to why Abba showed to me [what I now know and continue to learn] in the first place.
The Christian has a piece of what God has poured into the Gentiles and the Jewish people are soon to experience possibly the most amazing miracle of miracles.

Our enthusiasm should be in what we see happening and not in dissecting what we see happening. Echad means one......How can we become one if we overlook the Humility of Our God who is one. I am seeking the favor of Abba, Father not the correction.........time to be still

Many, many blessings to all of you

Lost, Christian, Hebrew, Retuning, Grafted In

  • I remember when I once believed that Apostle Paul (Rabbi Shaul) converted to Christianity, Actually He returned to what Moses shared having witnessed what Deuteronomy 18:18 prophesied.
  • I remember becoming a believer because a person shared the Gospel.
  • I remember when I connected for the first time that knowing why Jesus was Jewish changed the entire manner of my Christian faith...
  • I remember understanding the Biblical Festivals, New Moons, Counting the Omer, studying the original Hebrew Alphabet, and Language, the Hebrew Calendar, Hanukkah & Purim, the Lunar & Solar Eclipses, the Biblical Zodic....I now realize they are all declaring Abba, Father, and the King of Israel who has yet to RETURN!
Deuteronomy 18:18 I will raise them up a prophet from among their brothers, like you; and I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I shall command him

Acts 7:37 This is that Moses, who said to the children of Israel, 'The Lord our God will raise up a prophet for you from among your brothers, like me.' 

He was Jewish on Purpose, Planned from the beginning.

Learning the things that Noah, Abraham and Moses were taught was always about Jesus (Yeshua) Knowing the cultural identity of the entire Bible illuminates our Messiah to all generations...He was Jewish and so was everyone who wrote the Bible...What is Abba, Father, trying to tell us about....JEWISH? Learning TORAH and how TORAH sets the stage for the Gospels has been priceless. Both are one thing not a new thing...and both declare a KING of ISRAEL!

IS "BORN AGAIN!"

Oh my LORD reveal these truths to all of us seeking restoration to you. YOU created the Hebrews and then set your people apart. You allowed Christianity to rise up among the Gentiles so that we would be grafted into your set apart Kingdom...Now Father, please restore us to your ways. Remove from us idol worship and pagan religions...purify our hearts my Elohim, Amen!

Israel is completely surrounded by enemies of YAHWEH who want to see the death of HIS people on Purpose, Planned......

When the King arrives and obliterates these kingdoms, like what Joshua did, no one will question the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob!

Isaiah 53:6 Oh that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When God brings back his people from captivity, then Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad. For the Chief Musician. On stringed instruments. A contemplation by David, when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, "Isn't David hiding himself among us?"
Jeremiah 24:6 For I will set my eyes on them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up.
Jeremiah 30:3 For, behold, the days come, says Yahweh, that I will turn again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, says Yahweh; and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.
Amos 9:14 I will bring my people Israel back from captivity, and they will rebuild the ruined cities, and inhabit them; and they will plant vineyards, and drink wine from them. They shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.

Jewish Rabbi's taught all about the deity of Jesus (Yeshua)

 Listen to a Jewish Rabbi share with all of us what the Jews taught all of us about...Jesus (Yeshua)
the Deity of Jesus (Yeshua) established by Jewish Rabbis 
Rabbi Itzahk Shapira October 22th 2012

JESUS REMAINED JEWISH (as he did what was commanded)

If we are to consider the following scriptures and attach them to our modern day understanding of the Bible we would have to summarize them in this manner:
  1. God commanded Israel to Keep his Festivals (Appointed times) and all of His Laws
  2. Then he sent Jesus who fulfilled all of the Laws
  3. Then he sent Jesus again who is now teaching us His laws and commanding the whole world to keep his Festivals.
This would make the God of Creation Schizophrenic (For give me my LORD) because he would have changed his mind concerning his commandments in order to accommodate Christianity and to insure grace. The same grace by the way that was shown to Noah who was also rejected but who saved all of humanity because...Noah kept God's Laws this is what made him righteous before Abba, Father!

What God commanded did not change, Jesus followed every commandment, 
EVERY COMMANDMENT!

The LORD of  HOST commanded the following to be done forever.

Exodus 23:16 And the feast of harvest, the first fruits of your labors, which you sow in the field: and the feast of harvest, at the end of the year, when you gather in your labors out of the field. 

Leviticus 23:34 Speak to the children of Israel, and say, 'On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the feast of tents for seven days to Yahweh.

Numbers 29:39 "'You shall offer these to Yahweh in your set feasts, besides your vows, and your freewill offerings, for your burnt offerings, and for your meal offerings, and for your drink offerings, and for your peace offerings.'"

Deuteronomy 16:16 Three times in a year shall all your males appear before Yahweh your God in the place which he shall choose: in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tents; and they shall not appear before Yahweh empty:

Isaiah 66:23 It shall happen, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me," says Yahweh.

Ezekiel 20:40 For in my holy mountain, in the mountain of the height of Israel, says the Lord Yahweh, there shall all the house of Israel, all of them, serve me in the land: there will I accept them, and there will I require your offerings, and the first fruits of your offerings, with all your holy things.

Ezra 3:4 They kept the feast of tents, as it is written, and [offered] the daily burnt offerings by number, according to the ordinance, as the duty of every day required; and afterward the continual burnt offering, and [the offerings] of the new moons, and of all the set feasts of Yahweh that were consecrated, and of everyone who willingly offered a freewill offering to Yahweh.

Nehemiah 8:14 They found written in the law, how that Yahweh had commanded by Moses, that the children of Israel should dwell in booths in the feast of the seventh month; and that they should publish and proclaim in all their cities, and in Jerusalem, saying, "Go out to the mountain, and get olive branches, and branches of wild olive, and myrtle branches, and palm branches, and branches of thick trees, to make booths, as it is written."

When Jesus was in the flesh He represented and perfected what God raised up and called, HEBREW....He was Jewish!

Luke 2:41 His parents went every year to Jerusalem at the feast of the Passover.
Luke 2:42 When he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem according to the custom of the feast, and when they had fulfilled the days, as they were returning, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem. Joseph and his mother didn't know it,
John 2:13 The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
John 2:23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believed in his name, observing his signs which he did.
John 7:2  Now the feast of the Jews, the Feast of Booths, was at hand.
John 5:1 After these things, there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 



During the Millennial Reign of the Messiah on Earth
[God's laws will not have changed but rather, be taught]

Isaiah 54:13 All your children shall be taught of Yahweh; and great shall be the peace of your children.
[John 6:45 It is written in the prophets, 'They will all be taught by God.' Therefore everyone who hears from the Father, and has learned, comes to me.]


Jeremiah 31:34 and they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know Yahweh; for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says Yahweh: for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin will I remember no more.
[Hebrews 8:11 They will not teach every man his fellow citizen, and every man his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' for all will know me, from the least of them to the greatest of them.]

Zechariah 14:9 Yahweh will be King over all the earth. In that day Yahweh will be one, and his name one.

Zechariah 14:16 It will happen that everyone who is left of all the nations that came against Jerusalem will go up from year to year to worship the King, Yahweh of Armies, and to keep the feast of tents. It will be, that whoever of all the families of the earth doesn't go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, Yahweh of Armies, on them there will be no rain.

Micah 4:2  Many nations will go and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths." For out of Zion will go forth the law, and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem; and he will judge between many peoples, and will decide concerning strong nations afar off. They will beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, neither will they learn war any more.
  
John 7:19 Didn't Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keeps the law? Why do you seek to kill me?"
John 5:46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote about me.
Luke 24:27 Beginning from Moses and from all the prophets, he explained to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.

Moses knew God's Laws before He received the tablets and the commandments
Exodus 18:16 When they have a matter, they come to me, and I judge between a man and his neighbor, and I make them know the statutes of God, and his laws."
So too, did Abraham
Genesis 26:5 because Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my requirements, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws."


So..Israel is "Born again" [1948] because of what is going to happen from Jerusalem
Luke 24:47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name to all the nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

Isaiah 51:4 "Attend to me, my people; and give ear to me, my nation: for a law shall go forth from me, and I will establish my justice for a light of the peoples.

And these nations think that they are going to destroy Israel and take the land

Christians learning from Jews. When has this not been so?

The more we present the Messiah of Israel as a Jewish man, from a Jewish community to the Jewish people, the more we learn together about the Jewish King who is and is to come!

Jesus was Jewish so what is PRDS (He would know this information too!)

 Article by James Trimm
 
PaRDeS: Four Levels of Interpretation

PaRDeS: The Four Levels of Understanding the Scriptures
By Dr. James Trimm
The Hebrew/Aramaic word PARDES is spelled in Hebrew and Aramaic without vowels as PRDS. PaRDeS refers to a park or garden, esp. the Garden of Eden. The word appears three times in the Aramaic New Testament (Lk. 23:43; 2Cor. 12:4 & Rev. 2:7).  The word PRDS is also an acronym (called in Judaism "notarikon") for:
(Heb. "simple")
(Heb. "hint")
(Heb. "search")
(Heb. "hidden")
These are the four levels of understanding the scriptures. Each layer is deeper and more intense than the last, like the layers of an onion.
PASHAT
The first level of understanding is PASHAT (simple). The Pashat is the literal meaning. It is similar to what Protestant hermeneutics calls "Grammatical Historical Exogesis" and also similar to what Protestant Hermeneutics calls "The Literal Principle."
The PASHAT is the plain, simple meaning of the text; understanding scripture in its natural, normal sense using the customary meanings of the words being used, in accordance with the primary exegetical rule in the Talmud that no passage loses its PASHAT (b.Shab. 63a; b.Yeb. 24a). While there is figurative language (Ps. 36:7) symbolism (like Rom. 5:14); allegory (like Gal. 4:19-31) and hidden meanings (like Rev. 13:18; see also 1Cor. 2:7) in the Scriptures, the first thing to look for is the literal meaning or PASHAT.
The following rules of thumb can be used to determine if a passage is figurative and therefore figurative even in its PASHAT:
  1. When an inanimate object is used to describe a living being, the statement is figurative.  (Example: Prov. 18:10)
  2. When life and action are attributed to an inanimate object the statement is figurative.  (Example: same example Prov. 18:10)
  3. When an expression is out of character with the thing described, the statement is figurative.  (Example: Ps. 17:8)
PASHAT is the keystone of Scripture understanding. If we discard the PASHAT we lose any real chance of an accurate understanding, left with a no-holds-barred game of pure imagination in which we are no longer objectively deriving meaning from the Scriptures (exogesis), but subjectively reading meaning into the scriptures (eisogesis) (see 2Pt. 1:20-21; 1Tim. 4:3-4). Thus Talmud twice warns us: "No passage loses its PASHAT" (b.Shab. 63a; b.Yeb. 24a).
REMEZ
The next level of understanding is called in Hebrew REMEZ (hint). This is the implied meaning of the text. Peculiarities in the text are regarded as hinting at a deeper truth than that conveyed by its PASHAT.

An example of implied "REMEZ" meaning may be found in Ex. 21:26-26-27 where we are told of our liability regarding eyes and teeth. By the "REMEZ" understanding we know that this liability also applies to other body parts.
Another level of understanding the Scriptures is called in Hebrew "drash" meaning "search", this is the allegorical, typological or homiletical application of the text. Creativity is used to search the text in relation to the rest of the Scriptures, other literature, or life itself in order to develop an allegorical, typological or homiletical application of the text. This process involves eisogesis (reading of the text) of the text.
Three important rules in utilizing the drash level of understanding a scripture are:
[1] A drash understanding can not be used to strip a passage of its PASHAT meaning, nor may any such understanding contradict any PASHAT meaning of any other scripture passage. As the Talmud states "No passage loses its PASHAT." (b.Shab. 63a; bYeb. 24a)
[2] Let scripture interpret scripture. Look for the scriptures themselves to define the components of an allegory. For example use Mt. 12:18-23 to understand Mt. 13:3-9; Rev. 1:20 to understand Rev. 1:12-16; Rev. 17:7-18 to understand Rev. 17:2-8 etc.
[3] The primary components of an allegory represent specific realities. We should limit ourselves to these primary components when understanding the text.
EXAMPLES OF DRASH UNDERSTANDINGS:     Mt. 2:15 on Hosea 11:1
Mt. 3:11 on Is. 40:3
Rom. 5:14 (14-21) on Gen. 3:1-24
I Cor. 4:6
Gal. 4:24(21-31) on Gen. 17-22
Col 2:17
Heb. 8:5 on priesthood
Heb. 9:9, 24 on the Tabernacle
Heb. 10:1 on the Torah
Heb. 11:19 on Gen. 22:1f
1Pt. 3:21 on Gen. 6-9
SOD
    The final level of understanding the Scriptures is called in Hebrew "SOD" meaning "hidden". This understanding is the hidden, secret or mystic meaning of a text. (See I Cor. 2:7-16 esp. 2:7). This process often involves returning the letters of a word to their prime-material state and giving them new form in order to reveal a hidden meaning. An example may be found in Rev. 13:18 where the identity of the Beast is expressed by its numeric value.

Christians must not stay separated from the actual identity of a very Jewish King

The two sticks mentioned in Ezekiel 37:15-27 are also representing the renewed covenant of Jeremiah 31:31-35
Both concern Israel and those souls, strangers, foreigners,  who have always been a part of this nation...always been grafted into the root of David

The two sticks are concerning ISRAEL, being restored. The Servant Messiah had to be the sacrifice or death that renewed the life of the House of Israel, the Bride.....This is why the picture below represents what had to happen in Israel according to the God of Creation: The penalty of sin, adultery is death....Israel adulterated the relationship established on Mount Sinai. The marriage vow was broken...Yeshua restored the vow and all of the promises to Israel of which we are partakers of because of his death...He was Jewish dying to restore the House of Israel and the nations to Yahweh. Christianity in one sense, turned the vow into a Golden calf.....changed the identity of the Jewish Messiah. See's the shadow of Joseph from an Egyptian perspective. Well, Joseph, like Jesus was circumcised...They were not Gentiles but always Jewish. God is communicating events that would occur and have to be undone throughout scriptures...the restoration of all things!
Yahweh is showing to us the "Two Sticks" that his son, the groom would endure in order to take back what the enemy was given in the Garden of Eden  because of a choice Adam made concerning the land agreement God gave to him...Eden!

If you, the Christian return to the Festivals of Yahweh, return to understanding of Torah of Yahweh (Instructions), begin to see why the cycle of the moon is revealing God's time piece or understand the signalling presented to the entire world through the Solar and Lunar eclipses; If we will return to Jesus's ways ways..[he was Jewish] then we will see something foretold to happen in Israel that will cause them to call upon the name of the Lord. Instead of casting stones because of their failures we should be surrounding them with the LOVE of their brother.


Romans 11:11 I ask then, did they stumble that they might fall? May it never be! But by their fall salvation has come to the Gentiles, to provoke them to jealousy.

If only we would stop presenting to them a Christian Jesus but return to them a Jewish King in our understanding.....they would begin to see a miracle of miracles....The fulness of the gentiles coming in to the HOUSE of ISRAEL

Acts 28:28 "Be it known therefore to you, that the salvation of God is sent to the nations. They will also listen."

If we would honor what they have lived and died for and then be a light to them which illuminates a Jewish King who desires to return to HIS people.....Then we will have fulfilled our commission:

Psalm 98:3 He has remembered his loving kindness and his faithfulness toward the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

Stop rejecting our Jewish brethren...please support God's chosen!

Ishmael is going to try to take what was give to Isaac. So too, is Esau going to attempt to take what was given to Jacob. Who, as Christians are you going to stand with?
Jacob or Israel is the Red dot, Ishmael and later Esau 
is Green

We must know, "JEWISH"


Joel 2:32 It will happen that whoever will call on the name of Yahweh shall be saved; for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be those who escape, as Yahweh has said, and among the remnant, those whom Yahweh calls.

The Jewish prophet Joel is talking to Jews and the strangers with them
So too, is PAUL or Rabbi Shaul.......

Ephesians 2:12 that you were at that time separate from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of ISRAEL, and strangers from the covenants of the promise, having no hope and without God in the world.

We have hope, as our Savior's death, their King.... grafted us into the family. Not a church in the manner that Catholicism spread out to the nations. They did not spread the Torah or the foundation (Instructions) that presented to us the Gospel. Why did they not do this? Because it was Jewish, antisemitism caused much of the religions to reject the Jews. In so doing, we have been taught to reject the Jewishness of Jesus. Today many of us don't even think about him as a Jew.

He has one bride not two. Go back to the original mission of the Messiah.....Israel are those chosen and the strangers with them! We are grafted, cut into the side of the Olive tree! God always intended to bring salvation to the nations. Abraham is the picture of this very thing long before Israel was made a nation

Genesis 12:5 Abram took Sarai his wife, Lot his brother's son, all their substance that they had gathered,
and the Souls whom they had gotten in Haran, and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan. Into the land of Canaan they came.

The word Souls can also mean "Nations" in this verse...This verse is a picture of the family which would become Israel leading the nations towards a Promised Land.... Adam was given land, Noah, given land, Abraham, given land, Isaac, Jacob, Moses and Joshua eventually led the Children of Israel and the strangers with them into the promised land...Jesus (Yeshua) is going to lead the children of Israel and those grafted into that family, into Jerusalem, the city of David......[Not the pearly gates of heaven.] Joshua is a picture or shadow of the Messiah of Israel...not the churches. The church has a responsibility to go with Israel, not reject them.

A Jew was nailed to that tree
 

Ezekiel 47:23 It shall happen, that in what tribe the stranger lives, there you shall give him his inheritance, says the Lord Yahweh.

Many of us who are called Christian are those strangers..........we are to inherit with Israel..Our role has always been to be joined to the House of Israel.....Hence, Until the time that the Gentiles "COME IN"

This is why many, millions of Christians are returning to the Festivals, the Torah, the Understanding that all Jews would have had concerning why their brother was now nailed to a tree...
They knew who he was but the leadership turned the hearts of the people away...So too, did the churches
(Not from knowing the Gospel but from knowing the Jewish Gospel of the Jewish King of a Jewish nation---

He was Jewish.)

Ask this question:

Why don't I know the Jewishness of Jesus?....

If he was not a Jew none of the disciples would have followed him. Rabbi Shaul (Paul) would not, could not have written about a fellow Jew who kept God's laws........it would have been blasphemy on both accounts to do so!

We Christians have a responsibility to know our Lord and Savior...Well, if we truly are grafted into the common wealth of Israel why don't we know the Jewish identity of the Messiah?....If their truly is no Jew or Gentile then why is Israel "Born Again" and who are to be the inhabitants of this place when the Messiah of Israel, the Lion of the Tribe of Yehuda stands upon Mt Olive? Why is he to be seated on the throne of David?

Saturday, October 20, 2012

If We don't stand for God's people, He will not stand for us, It's really that simple!

 Please, we have a Biblical responsibility to support what God did in 1948....No other nation in human history was "BORN AGAIN" See the Hand of God as opposed to the teaching of men.

    Mr. President, We urge you to reconsider the posture taken by your administration. You should retract the statements made by Ambassador Rice. We ask that you do this on two counts: compliance with International Law and expressed concern for Regional Stability.We object, first, with regard to international law. Opponents to Israeli presence who charge the West Bank constitutes “military occupation” are terribly misinformed. The question of alleged “military occupation” was thoroughly investigated by legal scholars who found that Jewish occupancy in Judea and Samaria simply does not fit the legal definition of “military occupation” according to international law. The Levy Report, the document that carries results of a thorough investigation based on not only international but also Jordanian, Israeli and Ottoman laws, presents the final legal opinion on the issue of “military occupation.” The Judges wrote:“Our basic conclusion is that from the point of view of international law, the classical laws of ‘occupation’ as set out in the relevant international conventions cannot be considered applicable to the unique and sui generis historic and legal circumstances of Israel’s presence in Judea and Samaria, over the course of decades.”Judges considered the very definition of “military occupancy.” The Levy Report states that definition of “military occupation” according to the Geneva Convention is “the seizing of another nation’s land.” The judges determined that the designation of “military occupation” as not applicable because “no nation legally controlled Judea and Samaria following the fall of the Ottoman Empire which itself ruled the area for over five centuries.”Of further consideration was the question of territorial ownership. The Report states “Nor can the Jews be considered an outside force.” The Judges state that the Jews are “the historic founders of the territory as a unified nation-state.” The point could not be more clear. According to the Levy Report, “Jewish archeological finds dating back millennia abound in the ‘West Bank’.”Mr. President, a second source of objection to your current stance is our concern for regional stability. Rising security risks are escalating in the West Bank, problems made ever so glaring given rapid Palestinian construction that goes entirely unchecked, devoid of regulation.
    Mr. President, We believe that citizens of the United States, a democracy loving people, neither want nor can afford the loss of goodwill with Israel, the only faithful, democratic friend the United States has in the region.Americans sympathizing with Israel’s plight will not tolerate being held political hostage to the wanton territorial desire of an ever- increasing Arab presence that has made clear the desire to physically dominate and then destroy the existence of Israel.

Tree of Life or Tree of Good & Evil

I have been dealing with a sort of overwhelming sense of, "Why Bother?" Then my God, faithful and true, showed to me that he is responsible for the division. He is causing the separation just as was the case during creation. I began to see a theme happening. Abba, Father is drawing a line in the sand. He is saying, "those who practice foolishness and godliness are being revealed via the separation and division.
He is calling those who seek the "Tree of Life" to return to the root.
Those who exploit the gift of life are being set apart...prepared to be bundled and thrown into the fire

Matthew 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the harvest time I will tell the reapers, "First, gather up the darnel weeds, and bind them in bundles to burn them; but gather the wheat into my barn

2 Timothy 3:2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, un-thankful, unholy, without natural affection, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, no lovers of good, traitors, headstrong, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God;

TREE OF LIFE, or TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD & EVIL
(Our Creator is defining those who are literally going to rot in hell)

  • Biblical marriage, or Homosexual marriage?
  • Life, or Child Sacrifice (Abortion)
  • Human (person) at conception, or Not human (person) at conception
  • Yahweh, or Man's way
  • Love your neighbor, or Hateful racist 
  • Yeshua, or 12th Imam (Medhi) 
  • Israel, or Palestinian homeland in the land given to Judah
  • Torah & Besorah, or Islam, Catholicism/Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Atheism
  • Original Biblical Concepts, or Interpretive Theological Study
  • Hebraic, or Greek and Western Theology only
  • Michael & Gabriel, or Lucifer
  • In the Image of God, or Separated by Skin color
  • Biblical Israel, or Vatican City
  • Throne of David, or United Nations
  • Under God's Law, or The Law is done away with, fulfilled by Jesus
  • Holy Days of the Lord, or Holidays of men
  • Yahweh's Calendar, or Julian/Gregorian Calendar only
  • Grafted into Israel, or Replaced by the church
  • Jewish Messiah, or Blond Blue-Eyed Savior
  • David, or Goliath
I believe that Judaism also contains a mixture of what was given to men, and what has been interpreted. However, I will defer to what Abba, Father, poured into the Hebrew people that serves HIS purposes at almost every turn.
 Malachi 3:1 "Behold, I send my messenger, and he will prepare the way before me; and the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to his temple; and the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, behold, he comes!" says Yahweh of Armies.

I would suggest: Those who are returning to the book that is now open are realizing that what Daniel sealed up was the understanding of the scriptures or TORAH to the nations....Israel is being surrounded and marked for destruction so as to silence the TORAH of our Elohim. The life, death, and resurrection of Israel is being attacked because she was to teach TORAH to the nations.

The Messiah of Israel is going to teach TORAH to the nations. Isaiah had ZERO understanding of  Islam, Catholicism/Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Atheism when he wrote the following:

Isaiah 2:3 And many peoples shall go and say, come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

To those who want to understand better why Israel was resurrected and why Jesus was Jewish and why the color of your skin is not an issue in the Kingdom....My efforts in these areas will continue. I am going to share with the Kid's of the coming Kingdom. I cannot, nor do I want to share with those who are insisting on being catapulted into the abyss

Thankful that our Elohim, the Creator of all of us looks at the heart and not the category

Kim Kardashian marries Jerry Springer. America unraveled?

This morning while conversing with Rabbi Itzahk Shapira I shared with him that I am loosing my enthusiasm to share with Christians why we need to know the Jewishness of Jesus (Yeshua)

I am tired too of speaking with folks about how our Messiah is going to dishonor all people who come to him with bigotry and racism guiding their hearts.

The ever needed funding, life's demands, and the unbelievable Biblical ignorance that abounds is simply staggering to me.
Most Christians are clueless concerning the Old Testament. Most Jews have never read the New Testament..The terms Old and New in and of itself reveals ignorance extraordinary! Geez!



In July 2007 something so utterly amazing occurred in my life. All that I could ever imagine was made real. I have been trying to share with virtually anyone, everywhere that the most amazing events in human history are occurring!


Many Christians are waiting for a rapture, good luck with that deception!
Many Jews are waiting for a prophet to be raised up and many black folks are waiting for Obama to, "Do the right thing!"....
Muslims are just killing everything!

The deceiver of men must be having a knee slapping, side splitting, hysterical, lmao, time of it(?)

Meanwhile, the armies of Heaven are preparing for war. Israel is preparing for war and the nations are about to experience Holocaust!

Chaos is about to be eradicated across creation while Kim Kardshian is considering what it must be like to have intelligence!

Nicky Manaj and Mariah Carey don't like one another while Joe Biden is the poster child for dumb and dumber!

How does one keep trying to share with the world...our KING IS COMING? How will the world greet Him when the "NUT HUT" called humanity, is in full regalia?




Oh my Father, I need a refreshing blast from your spirit!


I was recently told that Nicky Manj has butt implants.....I need a drink!!!!!

I am a God-Fearer, not a Christian or Jew!


For years I learned about Jesus through a particular church in Portland, Oregon. My family and I attended New Song Community Church lead by Pastor Richard Probasco. Here I learned volumes about "Walking the Christian life" I have great respect for those years and appreciated very much many of the people that I came to know and call friends. Many think I am in a sort of cult these days.

My family and I moved to Vancouver, WA in 2003. There, we attended three churches. I had been asking questions concerning knowing the Jewish Jesus as opposed to the Sunday Jesus. One of the three churches turned out to be a disaster. This church has become a mega church since those days. It is possibly the best "Show" in town come Sunday morning. Another church asked me to not return. This too, was a large church. I was asking about the Feast of the Lord and they wanted nothing to do with the Old Testament in particularly, anything Jewish(?) The third church was where the Lord spoke to me saying, "Because I was Jewish, go learn why!"

Since having that happen to me nothing in my life has remained the same. Especially how I understand the Bible.

I am no longer a Christian based on the years I spent learning how to "Walk the Christian life." What has happened to my biblical understanding quite frankly makes the Casey Treats, Joel Olsteen's, TD Jakes and just about every thing any "New Testament Church" teaches shallow & lacking about 98 percent of what is being presented in the Holy Scriptures. http://jeffmorton.blogspot.com/2012/10/what-christian-minds-reads-but-cannot.html

Nevertheless, I do not like terms such as Messianic and struggle with Hebrew Root because what actually happened to me was God showed to me Israel and what, why, and who His set apart people are. We are grafted into this plan. The church does not comprehend that part of the plan. That part of the plan is the main portion being communicated to the entire world. I struggle not because of the reality behind the terms but because of what we have done with and to them.

So, I am not a Christian in the way that Christianity teaches about Jesus. In fact, I am not a Christ follower. I am very much so, one who has returned to the original Holy Scriptures and one who includes knowing what ever I can know concerning the Hebrew People and what was poured into the tribes of Israel in order for anyone of us to know anything at all about our great God. I have reconnected the Torah to the Besorah

I do not believe that the heart of a Christian who absolutely believes in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is any different than mine. I do believe that Christianity took a wrong turn 1800 years ago and has been learning about our Great God through a "Glass Darkly" I think Judaism made a similar turn many years earlier. I think both are a Mixture of what was revealed to Noah, Abraham and Moses.
Isaiah 25:7 He will destroy in this mountain the surface of the covering that covers all peoples, and the veil that is spread over all nations.
2 Corinthians 3:15-16  But to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. But whenever one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.
Yeshua
 The Veil in my opinion is caused because we have changed HIS identity

I think that the more I learn about these things the more that the living word becomes unlimited in scope. Hence, my joy continues to remain unlimited....
Jesus

So, I am not a Christian in the manner that I was exposed to God's word.....I am a BELIEVER in God's word and have found an exponential difference in learning about Him from the Hebrew mind as opposed to the Western mind...The difference is mind blowing!

A great book to read is "God-Fearers (Gentiles & the God of Israel)" by Toby Janicki.

For me to learn from a Christian Church on Sunday morning that does not teach TORAH and does not understand the Holy Festivals, God's Calendar, the House of Israel, The Jewishness of Jesus (Yeshua) and share about the Patterns, Themes, Idiomatic expressions germane to Jewish writings or the Jewishness of Paul and the disciples. A church that does not know the Hebrew culture spread out over centuries, or writings of various Jewish Rabbi's and sages from earlier times is simply not possible anymore. I try to encourage Christian to add these realities to what we have been taught and do so daily. Some challenge what we know others reject almost anything Jewish and do so almost immediately. This to me is the oddest, most perplexing thing about my entire faith life. You see, every Christian on earth walks into a church every Sunday carrying a book that God inspired the Jews to write but most know nothing about Jewish anything?

Teaching the Pastors and learning together.

I had the privileged of sharing with three pastors this week courtesy of the telephone, smile!

I was called by all three who had either met me or heard about me. One Pastor in particular asked me rather point blank, "So what do you know that I do not know seeing as how you have not been to seminary?" I responded by suggested that we stay focused on the scriptures. Naturally, was his response!

Okay, let me tell you a little secret so that you know beforehand: I always focus on the so called, "Old Testament" I prefer to reference the Holy Scriptures using the word Tanakh which is an acronym
T for TORAH, N for Neviim, the Prophets, and K for "Ketuvim, the Sacred Writings. It is the compendium or encapsulated instructions (if you will) of the teachings of Yahweh to human beings in written form. Moses wrote theses 1st five books

•  Bereshit, or Genesis.........In the beginning
•  Shemot, or Exodus...........The names of
•  VaYikra, or Leviticus..........Called
•  BaMidbar, or Numbers....... In the wilderness
•  Devarim, or Deuteronomy.....The words


John 5:46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote about me.
Luke 24:27 Beginning from Moses and from all the prophets, he explained to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.

So, if in the beginning, the names of the called, in the wilderness are given words, these words are all about Yeshua. If the spoken word, written word and living word are all one then none can contradict the other. Therefore, why do we have an old testament and a new testament?

If we are to believe that Yahweh did in fact raise up a prophet, this prophet would surely be whom Moses wrote about. If this is true how does one see Yeshua in the first five books. None of the Pastors that I spoke with could relate to what I was sharing. Most simply do not know any of this. How do we see (Yeshua) Jesus in the beginning if in fact he was in the beginning?

A Prophet Like Unto Moses - Part 1 (28 mins)
A Prophet Like Unto Moses - Part 2 (28 mins)
A Prophet Like Unto Moses - Part 3 (28 mins)
A Prophet Like Unto Moses - Part 4 (28 mins)

Deuteronomy 18:18 I will raise them up a prophet from among their brothers, like you; and I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I shall command him.

Luke is quoting when he writes "Yahweh your God will raise up to you a prophet from the midst of you, of your brothers, like me. You shall listen to him.
Acts 3:22  For Moses indeed said to the fathers, 'The Lord God will raise up a prophet for you from among your brothers, like me. You shall listen to him in all things whatever he says to you.
Acts 7:37  This is that Moses, who said to the children of Israel, 'The Lord our God will raise up a prophet for you from among your brothers, like me.

King David as a boy, rides into the camp on a donkey, sent by the Father (Jesse)
1 Samuel 16:20 Jesse took a donkey loaded with bread, and a bottle of wine, and a young goat, and sent them by David his son to Saul
Yeshua (Jesus) rides into Jerusalem on a donkey sent by the Father.....
Matthew 21:5 Tell the daughter of Zion, behold, your King comes to you, humble, and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
Zechariah 9:9 Rejoice greatly, daughter of Zion! Shout, daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King comes to you! He is righteous, and having salvation; lowly, and riding on a donkey, even on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
 Why was David going into the camp or Yeshua (Jesus) going into Jerusalem.....both were going to to do what the Father had asked. Why the similarity or pattern and the prophetic declaration?

In Exodus 12 we see the Father developing a calendar before Moses left Egypt...The very first thing on the calendar is Passover....Yeshua, many years later fulfilled this Holy Day....Why, because he entered Jerusalem on a donkey at Passover....He kept the Festivals later detailed in the book of Leviticus, chapter 23 with the Sabbath being the most important to be celebrated weekly.

Why did God command these things to happen...If Yeshau (Jesus) fulfilled the law then why did he keep all of them unto death. Does it not say that the wages of sin are death? Yeshua took all sin upon himself therefore he had to die? He followed the Festival commandments, the sabbath and Yahweh's voice, statutes, commands and laws or Torah

So too, did Abraham
Genesis 26:5 because Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my requirements, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws."

As did Noah
Genesis 6:9 This is the history of the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time. Noah walked with God.

As I spoke with these Pastors I was showing to them how the Bible is one book connecting the MIND of Yahweh to the story of men. He did all of this through the planned nation of Israel. I was trying to connect dots if you will as to why Yeshua did what he did, when he did them and to whom...All of which is detailed in the first five books...All of these Pastors wanted to understand more of what I was sharing...

None were familiar of how the Bible is written in repeating patterns, and or cyclical themes but, all three relied on Western Theology. In my opinion, this is why they did not know any of what I was sharing.

I shared briefly the Paleo-Hebrew or picture language. Again, none of these Pastors had any association with the Bible from a Hebraic or original context.
If Yeshua (Jesus) fulfilled anything it was calendar events, scheduled events that had been practiced for over 1500 years
These very events are also the same events that are the seven days of Creation
Passover
Unleaven Bread
First Fruits
Shavua ot
Trumpets 
Yom Kippur
Tabernacles

The patterns, idioms, poetic writings, themes, lives and events are a cacophony of activity declaring one thing and one thing only..restoration of all things with a King appointed by Yahweh to bring peace to chaos. This is what we are all learning to comprehend, all of us.......

What we don't know matters only insofar as we come together as brothers to "seek out a matter" not fight about it...We have all been fighting about it since Cain!

I truly appreciate sharing with others what has been shared with me.....This all started for me when Abba, Father asked me to learn why Yeshua was Jewish. As a result of hearing that voice in June of 2007 I see a conformation of this unfolding story in everything that can be seen, heard, touched, tasted and smelled, all of which are inexplicably, YAHWEH I also see why the world systems are trying to wipe Israel out of existence...Wisdom without TORAH (or the instructions of God) is simply STUPID due to the idiocy of fallen man.

Isaiah 46:10 declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not [yet] done; saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure;

The Pastor who asked, "So what do you know that I do not know seeing as how you have not been to seminary" was astonished at what I was graciously able to add to his understanding of the scriptures. What is most important about this is that for me, the more that I learn, truly the more I realize how much I don't know!





And know, I am following a Jewish Rabbi who is teaching me how to be more humbled. Thank you Rabbi Itzahk Shapira

I love learning about our King and his people!
