Yah provided a guitar!

Just a quick note to let you all know that Yah has provided an Alvarez acoustic electric guitar for me. A friend steered me to it and a brother and sister sent me a gift the day I purchased it for nearly the exact amount, even though they knew nothing about the purchase, or price! How specific is Yah? Completely! Bless His Name!

Peace,

Easter or Passover – Scripture or Tradition

Do you believe Scripture, or do you believe man?

Do you believe Scripture, or do you believe man?

Was He Jesus, the one that Easter speaks of, or is He Yahshua, the Messiah, the Passover Lamb of YHWH Elohim, as the Bible tells us? Do you believe the Scriptures that tell us that He was three days and three nights in the tomb, or man’s tradition that says He was crucified on Good Friday, and rose on Easter Sunday, giving honor to those pagan days?

The Bible indeed says that He was, and is the Passover Lamb of YHWH Elohim, who came and died, and rose again, as the First Fruits. The Apostle Paul, who is really named Shaul, wrote these things, yet traditionalism either ignores what he wrote or finds a creative way to explain it away. Easter speaks of a pagan false god that can’t save anyone. The Passover was given to observe because it spoke, and still speaks of the Passover Lamb of YHWH Elohim who takes away the sin of the world. His blood, when applied through believing He is the Passover Lamb, who was killed and rose from the dead, will save us.

Without Passover happening we are still under the curse of sin and death. Easter is a lie and a tradition of men, inspired by the enemy, Satan.

Read the gospel accounts. He was three days and three nights in the tomb, with two Sabbaths occurring within those days. One was the weekly Sabbath, that followed Passover, as The Feast of Unleavened Bread began. The second was the weekly 7th Day Sabbath that happened on what people call by the pagan name Saturday. The weekly Sabbath was just before the Feast of First Fruits that week. He arose as the day dawned, while it was just getting dark, that evening, because the day begins in the evening according to Scripture. That fits 3 days and 3 nights in the tomb.

If He was crucified as man says, on “Good Friday,” and rose on “Easter Sunday morning,” that gives him according to any reckoning of time you can use, only 1 day, and 2 nights in the tomb. Do the math. Consider what is written, and let the Word of Elohim be true and let us all confess that we have believed lies from liars, in the sway of the chief liar, and believe what He said that we might know the Passover Lamb who died to give us life.

Peace

All of Torah is about Yahshua

Hebrews 1“Then I said, ‘See, I come – in the roll of the book it has been written concerning Me – to do Your desire, O Elohim.’ ” -Ibrim (Hebrews) 10:7

If you haven’t read the Book of Hebrews lately, I encourage you to do so again, with this important foundation; you must be willing to embrace the Torah of YHWH in order to understand our Great High Priest Yahshua Messiah.

Every facet of the type is a picture of who He is. The type – the Levitical priesthood as written – was patterned after the True Priesthood of Yahshua. It was given as Plan B to point to Plan A – Yahshua.

If you don’t have a love for the Truth of Torah you will miss the True Living Torah. The Scribes and Pharisees missed Him at His first coming because they didn’t have a love for the Truth of Torah – though they were adamant that they did. Yahshua knew them well and told them, “For if you believed Mosheh, you would have believed Me, since he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings,1 how shall you believe My words?” -John 5:46-47

Professing Christian, do you believe Mosheh (Moses)? You may say you do, but do you know his writings? Have you studied them, and, if you believe, do you obey the Instructions/Torah contained in Mosheh’s writings? Belief is proven by works, as Ya’acob (James) said of Abraham. To really hear the words of Yahshua, who is wrongly called Jesus, and to believe what He said you must know and believe what Mosheh wrote, for in what Mosheh wrote is Messiah Yahshua our Great High Priest and Redeemer, our Sovereign and Elohim.

Selah……

Like Isaac, Children of Promise

The Apostle Shaul (Paul) wrote, in Galatians 4:28, that we are like Isaac, being children of the Promise. Isaac was the result of the promise given to his father Abraham, by Yahweh. Abraham believed Yahweh, and it was counted as righteousness to him. His righteousness was not found in his own works, but were seen in his belief and willingness to repent and press on in the journey that Yah had sent him on.

Yahweh told Abraham (who was called Abram then). in Genesis (Bereshith) 12, to pack up and leave his father’s house, at 75 years old!

“And YHWH said to Aḇram, “Go yourself out of your land, from your relatives and from your father’s house, to a land which I show you.
And I shall make you a great nation, and bless you and make your name great, and you shall be a blessing!
And I shall bless those who bless you, and curse him who curses you. And in you all the clans of the earth shall be blessed.”
So Aḇram left, as YHWH had commanded him, and Lot went with him. And Aḇram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Ḥaran.” -Genesis (Bereshith) 12

Abram believed Yah and left. He didn’t know where he was going, but Yah said he would show him. Keep in mind that Abram never found that on this side of eternity. His testimony was that he was looking for a city who’s builder and maker is Yah. Abram journeyed his entire life, and never received the promise in full. He received a sign of that promise in the birth of Isaac, the promised son of the Seed. Shaul also writes, in Galatians, that it is of the Seed, as in one, not seeds as in many. That Seed is Yahshua Messiah. The promise is to the Son of Yah, the Seed, and then those who receive that Seed. The Seed is that which falls on good ground (received by faith/belief), and springs up and bears fruit of the seed. Isaac was the result of receiving the promise by belief. We are like Isaac, those who believe and receive the promise, along with Abraham. His name was changed to Abraham, from Abram, when he believed and entered into the covenant that YHWH made with him.

For us today, being believers in the New Covenant in Yahshua’s blood, we are, like Issac, children of the promise. We are told we are then, by belief, children of Abraham. This simply means we bear the same attitude as Abraham; we believe, and repent when the source of our belief shows us that we are missing the mark. But we have something greater than Abraham had. We have the Set Apart Spirit dwelling in us, because the Seed has come, became the perfect sacrifice once for all, and delivered us from this age, and our flesh, death, hell, and the grave. Abraham had to wait to be delivered from all of that. He didn’t receive the promise until Yahshua’s death, when He descended into paradise, and declared that He was the One to whom they looked and longed for, and then Abraham received the promise, and was led on high by Yahshua.

Today I want you to consider who Abram believed, in order to come that place of having a new name. And consider what he believed to come to that place in his journey.

Who Abram believed was YHWH Elohim. He told him to leave his father, Terah’s house and follow Yah to a place that He would show him. This place would not be like his father Terah’s house, nor would it even resemble it. The house that Yah would show Abraham is Yahshua. Receiving the promise finds us in Him. And we are His house, that He builds, Yahshua in us!

“And there was a scarcity of food in the land, besides the first scarcity of food which was in the days of Aḇraham. And Yitsḥaq went to Aḇimeleḵ, sovereign of the Philistines, in Gerar.
And YHWH appeared to him and said, “Do not go down to Mitsrayim, live in the land which I command you.
Sojourn in this land. And I shall be with you and bless you, for I give all these lands to you and your seed. And I shall establish the oath which I swore to Aḇraham your father.
And I shall increase your seed like the stars of the heavens, and I shall give all these lands to your seed. And in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed,
because Aḇraham obeyed My voice and guarded My Charge: My commands, My laws, and My Torot.” -Genesis (Bereshith) 26

Bereshith (Genesis) Chapter Twenty-Six says that Abraham believed and obeyed Torah. On Abraham’s journey, he walked in Torah. And because of this the blessing would come upon his progeny. But the progeny that is the focus of the promise is not those of Abraham’s fleshly seed; not simply the fruit of his loins, but much more! The progeny Yah speaks of is those who are like Abraham, believers in YHWH Elohim, and willing to step out on the journey, step by step, as He guides and shows the Way.

We are like Abraham, if we believe all that Yah has said, and we are like Isaac, children of the Promise, likewise if we believe all that Yah has said. Because of that we have received the Seed; the implanted Word that is able to save us.

“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: 1See Mt. 13:4-23. )
And become doers of the Word, and not hearers only,1 deceiving yourselves. (Footnote: 1See Mt. 7:24-27, Lk. 6:46-49, Lk. 8:21, Rom. 2:13, Heb. 4:11, Rev. 22:14.)
 Because 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,
for he looks at himself, and goes away, and immediately forgets what he was like.
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 Torah.” -Ya’acob (James) 1:21-25

Ya’acob writes in detail about the man Abraham, later in this letter of his. He tells us clearly that Abraham was declared righteous by his belief, and by his works. But what we must realize is that Abraham was not the perfect man! That may shock you, but read the story. History shows that Abraham is no different than you or me. He made many missteps in his journey. But his belief in the promise given at the beginning of his journey was shown in that he kept walking. Oh, yes, there were adjustments to his course along the way. That is called repentance! But Abraham believed that YHWH Elohim would show him. He believed when he was given instruction from Yah. Yes, in his fear he struggled with belief, but he was faithful to what he knew, and he did it. Yah took care of the rest. Abraham was a doer of Torah, and therefore he was blessed in doing it. One must believe
Torah, and step out in belief to do it, and then the work of grace provides the power to walk in it. That’s our journey.

Today, as Scripture teaches, we have a great advantage over Abraham. We have the Set Apart Spirit who indwells us, is ever present with us, who works grace in and then through us, to desire to do His Torah, and to empower us to do His Torah. We are His workmanship, by grace through belief (faith). -Ephesians 2:8-10

So the same Elohim who called Abram to leave his family and home, and to look for another that Yah would show him, is the one who called us to the same journey. He went with Abraham. He lives in us, and His Set Apart Spirit teaches us, and empowers us along the way. We walk in the resurrection power of Yahweh, who raised Yahshua, the Seed from the grave. The Seed was planted in the ground and arose to bear more fruit. He is planted in you and me (we came from the earth, we are the earth/land) and He bears fruit in and through us. We walk in His “newness of life” that Shaul writes about in Romans Chapter 6. We are His workmanship, as He who began this good work in us is faithful to complete it! (Hebrews 12)

He has called us to leave our fleshly family and house to be a part of His family and His house. We, like Abraham, are to leave the mighty-ones (gods) of our father in the flesh, and cleave only to Yahshua, our bridegroom, who’s Father becomes our Father – the only true Mighty-One, YHWH Elohim. Yahweh does not change. His House has not changed. He calls us to walk the same journey as Abraham, but it is a journey that is now in Yahshua Messiah. But the same destination lies before us. One day we will be with Abraham, receiving a new, incorruptible body, and in the presence of YHWH Elohim and His Son Yahshua forever!

Are you willing to really leave your father in the flesh’s house, in favor of Yah’s House? Or are you too devoted to what the world has to offer; its traditions that are in opposition to what Yah said? Remember that Abraham walked in Torah. And we are to be people of belief as Abraham. We are to believe and obey the same Torah that He did. Yah does not change. His Torah has not changed. We must change. We must leave the house and land of our father in the flesh, and allow our heavenly Father YHWH Elohim, to guide to to His House. We are to be His House. He is our House. We need not concern ourselves over what we give up in leaving the house of our father in the flesh. He gives back so much more!

“And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My Name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.” -Matitityahu (Matthew) 19:29

Yahshua echos what was told to Abram when he was instructed to leave the house of his father in the flesh, Terah. We are called the same as Abraham. Who do we believe? Do we believe man, who leads us to build large, outlandish structures, and call the the “temple” or “house” or “church” of YHWH (LORD) Elohim (God), or will be believe Yahshua who said He would build his gathering? And we know we are His body, and that we are His temple, according to Shaul (Paul). We know from Yah’s word to David, through Nathan, as witnessed to by Stephen in Acts, that Yah does not dwell in any structure built by man. He builds His House. He makes (by His work of grace) us into His House.

Are you on the journey? Then seek Him in His Word and follow, step by step, the ancient path laid our for us from before the foundation of the world. His Light will illuminate each step, one step at a time. And when get off the path, all we have to do is repent, come back into the Light, where it will be clearly seen where we mistepped and what the correct step is, so we might take it. If you haven’t yet began the journey, seek the implanted Word, the Living Word Yahshua, who alone can save you. Believe the Promise and become a child of the Promise, in the Seed, Yahshua Messiah.

Peace,
