A few words from a book with the name, “The Books of the Besorah (Message)” which I found close to my heart. I share this with you and hope that you will focus your attention on which is in heaven.
How Are We To Pray?
And His taught ones came to YAHUSHA
And one of them said to Him, “Master, teach us to pray as
Yahuchanon also taught his taught ones.”
Yahusha responded, “When you are praying, do not keep on
Babbling like the gentiles for they think that they shall be
Heard for their many words.
Therefore do not be like them for your Father knows what
You need before you ask Him.
This then is the way you should pray:”
Let : To Permit
‘Our Father who is in the heavens,
Let Your Name be set–apart,
Let Your Reign come,
Let Your Desire be done on earth as it is in heavens.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.
Do not lead us into trial,
But deliver/save us from the wicked one.
Yours is the Reign and the Power and the Esteem,
Now and Forever. Amen’
Debarim (Deuteronomy) 5:29
Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 33:22
Mattithyahu (Matthew) 6:7-13
Now, let’s see if this word “knowledge”, that is available to all,
Makes a difference in this wonderful prayer.
Permit Your Name to be set-apart,
Permit Your Reign to come,
Permit Your Desire to be done.
PS: Yes sir, it makes a big difference!
BERESHITH – In The Beginnings
Hebrew is the “lashon qodesh”, or set-apart tongue. Each word is not only important, but “breathed” directly from the mind and heart of the Creator of Shamayim (heavens, skies) and Erets (Earth) into the men who recorded these words.
The word BERESHITH is made up of these parts: The root: RESH – literally “head” (by extension, beginning, or first in place, time, order, or rank). The “BA” is a single letter, BETH, before the RESH and means “in”. The ending letter is TAU and makes the word plural.
The revelation of YAHUAH’s process of creation is provided for us in a series of beginnings for the primary particles, energies, objects and organisms so that we may understand the grandeur, design and power that was spoken into existence. All these things He did in a special act of creation, in order to find joy in the companionship of those He created.
Out of water (a molecule of 2 elements) He made all the other elements, calling it “mayim”. When anyone enters His Covenant, they are immersed in water. This is the beginning of a new life that is lived for Him out of their love for Him. The physical universe is only a part of what Yahuah has created, since He was creating long before the “foundations” of the Earth were laid.
He is Life eternal and Spirit.
This book, “The Books of the Besorah” is about Him (YAHUAH) and His life which He has breathed into His creatures.
From the beginning, those of the WAY have walked on a narrow straight PATH.
We read about such men as Enoch, Noach and Abrahim who walked before YAHUAH according to a certain WAY. Walking in the way has always meant a singular thing: to obey Torah, the instructions of YAHUAH. Let’s look at how YAHUAH longs for His Torah to be in our hearts. ‘This command which I am commanding you today, is not too hard for you, nor is it far off. It is not in the heavens to say; Who shall ascend into the heavens for us and bring it to us and cause us to hear it, so that we do it? Nor is it beyond the sea to say; Who shall go over the sea for us and bring it and cause us to hear it, so that we do it?
For the Word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart to do it. See, I have set before you today life and good and death and evil, in that I am commanding you today to love YAHUAH your Elohim, to walk in His ways and to guard His commands and His laws and His right-rulings. And you shall live and increase and YAHUAH your Elohim shall bless you in the land which you go to possess. Deut. 30:11-16.
The Natsarim were referred to as being of the WAY and were easily discovered because they used the Personal Name of YAHUAH while others would not. Sha’ul was dispatched to arrest and bring them bound to Yerushalayim so their utterance of the Name in the presence of the Sanhedrin would cause them to be condemned for blasphemy: But Sha’ul, still breathing threats and murder against the taught ones of the Master, having come to the high priest, asked from him letters to the congregations of Damascus, so that if he found any who were of the Way, whether men or women, to bring them bound to Yerushalayim. Acts 9:1 and 2
The Hebrew word for WAY is #1870, DEREK and means path, road and figuratively a mode of living. It is the straight and narrow. We get our English word “direct” from this Hebrew root word. The Hebrew language uses physical substances in the world and brings their attributes into a figurative expression of thought. A nostril might be literal but often it conveys the figurative meaning of rage, or disapproval. A path or way can lead to destruction or to life everlasting. YAHUAH will have the last word: He calls us to walk on the old paths and listen to the voice behind us when we turn to the right or left. He reminds us constantly of our stubborn rebellion but in the following two verses we see that the breach will one day be repaired and from among us there will be people that will rebuild the waste places and restore the streets to dwell in: Thus said YAHUAH, “Stand in the ways and see and ask for the old paths where the good way is and walk in it and find rest for yourselves. But they said, ‘We do not walk in it.’” YirmeYahu 6:16
And those from among you shall build the old waste places and you shall raise up the foundations of many generations. You would be called the Repairer of the Breach, the Restorer of Streets to dwell in. If you do turn back your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on My set-apart day and shall call the Sabbath a delight, the set-apart day of YAHUAH esteemed and shall esteem it, not doing your own ways or finding your own pleasure or speaking your own words, then you shall delight yourself in YAHUAH. I shall cause you to ride on the heights of the earth and feed you with the inheritance of Ya’aqob your father. The mouth of YAHUAH has spoken !” YeshaYahu 58:12-14.
YAHUSHA is the Repairer and the Restorer and we are His ambassadors. He is working through any that will adhere to His WAY, the Torah. What will become of those who do not walk in the Torah? Help us restore the Covenant to the lost sheep, who are perishing and without hope until the Mediator of the Covenant restores them. We are nearing the end of days and those on the wide road will seal their doom unless they repent and follow the road less traveled.
The Re-gathering Of All Yisra’el
Yahuah considers everyone obeying His Covenant to be Yisra’el. There are physical descendants of Yisra’el, from the sons of Yisra’el, the fathers of the families or tribes. Yonah was descended from Zebulon, Mosheh and Aharon from Lu’i (Levi), Sha’ul from Benyamin and so on. Yahusha was of the tribe of Yahudah. Anyone descended from physical Israel that no longer walks in the Covenant is no longer Yisra’el, but still is a “natural branch” that was broken-off the olive tree. They are the “lost tribes of Yisra’el” and Yahusha is sent to them, through us. We bring them the “good news” or “message” (Besorah), which is His Covenant – the Torah.
Being descended from the tribes of Israel does not mean you are walking in a Covenant with YAHUAH, but He declared He would keep His part in that Covenant open to any who would repent (return) and walk in it. He promised to always remember His Covenant. We can ignore that Covenant and perish without hope, being in darkness because we are not brought near through His Covenant Eph. 2:8-13).
Or, we can be restored to it. (Find some time to read Psalm 80) It is pertinent to this restoration of the tribes of Yisra’el to YAHUAH’s Torah in these last days.
The tribes of Yisra’el are scattered across the whole face of the Earth and inherited the customs of the nations, thoroughly blending into the nations. The Assyrians dispersed the northern 10 tribes (known by the dominant, first-born blessing tribe, Ephraim); shortly after the drought of the northern area of Samaria (This is why the 10 tribes in the north were called “Samaritans”).
Most fled the Assyrians by sea, to live with their families in the safety of various established colonies all around the Mediterranean, but also further along the coast of Africa and the British Isles, known at that time as Hibernia (Eber is the root of this term). Another term that has “Eber” (I’bri, Hebrew) for a root is “Iberia”, the area known today as Spain (Tarshish was a colony of Yisra’el along the coast of Iberia, where the prophet “Jonah” was attempting to reach. Yonah was hoping that Yahuah WOULD destroy Nineveh because it was the capital of Yisra’el’s mortal enemy, ASSYRIA (ASSHUR in Hebrew). Yisra’el’s duty has always been to bring the Covenant to the nations, but up until now this has not been done, or even contemplated by most.
Failing in this duty and turning to worship the Ba’als, Yahuah scattered Yisra’el in 722 BCE and Yahudah in 586 BCE. Shortly after the time of Yonah, Yisra’elites fled from the Assyrian onslaughts by land and settled to the north, above the Black Sea and became known as the Sacae, or Scythians.
This word is cognate with “iSAC” (Isaac, Yitsaq). The descendants of these “Sacae” who migrated to the east became the Parthian empire, which later completely wiped-out the Assyrians!
Other Yisra’elites fled to the northern area of Africa, along the southern part of the
Mediterranean Sea; one the chief cities there was called Carthage. The Carthaginians almost conquered the Roman Empire and one of the most famous Yisra’elites from there was Hannibal. The land known as Ireland (Hibernia) was another long established colony. There were Yisra’elites living in colonies in America as long ago as 1000 BCE.
Yisra’el was predominantly a “sea” empire, while other empires were more concerned with becoming land powers. The Yisra’elites traded all over the world, using the “rivers” in the oceans (currents) as their “roads”. They were traders and miners. The Greeks called the Yisra’elites “Phoenicians”, a fact which most modern scholars have yet to learn.
You’ll be as amazed as we were to learn that the word “Phoenician” is Greek and simply a label for a “sea people” (sea empire with many colonies) who lived in the land of what they called “Phoenicia” about 1000 BCE. The people who lived in that land the Greeks called “Phoenicia” didn’t call themselves “Phoenicians”. Other Yisra’elite colonies were in various places such as the area of North America, one of many evidences is the large stone found near the Rio Grande River in modern New Mexico: The Los Lunas Stone. This is an ancient stone artifact of the Ten Commandments Covenant found in New Mexico, USA.
This stone shows the Ten Commandments written in the primary (palaeo) Hebrew script written on a large stone found in the 1800’s at Los Lunas, New Mexico, near the Rio Grande. It could be 3000 years old and it contains the Name “Yahuah”. It was written in obedience to Dt. 6, as we are to write them on our doorposts and on our gates — this stone was at the entrance to an ancient colony or settlement of Yisra’elites.
The style of the letter “yod” used on the stone indicates that the Israelites of the northern 10 tribes (Samaritans) were in North America. It could have been inscribed on this stone as early as the ninth century BCE, during the reign of King Shlomo (Solomon), or as late as 146 BCE when the Carthaginians (Yisra’elites) were conquered by Rome. Many “diasporas” occurred, but we now know that Israel was mostly a “sea empire” and they were called “Phoenicians” by the Greeks. Yes, the “Phoenicians” were Israelites! They didn’t call themselves “Phoenicians”, Herodotus called them that. The Yisra’elites traveled the oceans of the world as they mined tin, copper, gold and iron. Did you know that the distance from the western coast of Africa to South America is LESS than the width of the Mediterranean Sea? Columbus didn’t discover the Americas, Yisra’elites were already living here and many became what are now referred to as “Native Americans”.
“Therefore, go and make taught ones of all the nations, Immersing them in the Name of the Father And of the Son and Of the Set-apart Spirit, Teaching them to OBEY all that I have commanded you. And see, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” Amĕn. Mt. 28:19, 20

The Covenant between YAHUAH and Yisra’el
Most people read their favorite translation of YAHUAH’s Word for years and never see the most glaring facts staring right at them. The Truth is, YAHUAH has never forsaken His Covenant with Yisra’el, but has renewed it in the precious blood of YAHUSHA. Gentiles have been misled to think that He has given up on the people He Covenanted with, or that He made a “new” Covenant with a different people. This is the core of what is called “replacement theology” and it is a profound error. The everlasting Covenant is with all who partake in it and they become “Yisra’el” through this Covenant. They are “cut-off” from Yisra’el the moment they depart from it. It is the renewal of this Covenant that is significant because it is sealed, not with the imperfect blood of rams and goats, but with the infinitely superior blood of the Son of YAHUAH, YAHUSHA ha’Mashiach. YAHUSHA is the Mediator of the renewed Covenant, Who writes it upon hearts of flesh and causes us to receive a love for the Truth. We can now love His instructions!
Gentiles become “fellow citizens” with Yisra’el through this Covenant and are referred to as being “formerly gentiles in the flesh”. They are no longer gentiles, but Yisra’el, through the workmanship of YAHUSHA. If they accept the Mashiach of Yisra’el, but do not accept the Covenant He brings with Him, they are without hope, because of their disobedience.
“For we are His workmanship, created in Messiah YAHUSHA unto good works, which Elohim prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Therefore remember that you, once gentiles in the flesh, who are called ‘the uncircumcision’ by what is called ‘the circumcision’ made in the flesh by hands, that at that time you were without Messiah, and you were excluded from the citizenship of Yisra’el and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no expectation and without Elohim in the world.
But now in Messiah YAHUSHA you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of the Messiah. For He is our peace, who has made both one, and having broken down the partition of the barrier, having abolished in His flesh the enmity – the Torah of the commands in dogma – so as to create in Himself one renewed man from the two, thus making peace, and to completely restore to favor both of them unto Elohim in one body through the stake, having destroyed the enmity by it.
And having come, He brought as Good News (Besorah) peace to you who were far off and peace to those near, because through Him we both have access to the FATHER by one Spirit.
So then you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the set-apart ones and members of the household of Elohim, having been built upon the foundation of the emissaries and prophets, YAHUSHA Messiah Himself being chief corner-stone, in whom all the building, being joined together, grows into a set-apart Dwelling Place in Yahuah, in Whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of Elohim in the Spirit.” Eph. 2:10-22
Yisra’el is now the living Hekel (Temple) of Yahuah, indwelled by YAHUSHA’s Spiritual presence in us. It has always been YAHUAH’s will for Yisra’el to teach His Torah to the nations. The story of Yonah portrays Yisra’el’s unwillingness to perform this duty willingly, but now we in the last days realize our duty. We are commissioned to teach the gentiles and engraft them into the Torah/Covenant, “teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you”.
We are one body and we have a name He calls us by:
IT IS AS SIMPLE AS ONE ~ TWO ~ THREE ~ FOUR!
HOW A “GENTILE” GETS HEADED FOR HOME?
If a person outside the Covenant picks up this book and wants to find their salvation, how are they to begin? Much of the effort behind the message in this book (“The books of Besorah”) is directed at getting Yisra’el to obey YAHUAH and then in turn they are to teach the nations to obey, thus increasing Yisra’el. The development of “replacement theology” caused a widespread deception that somehow gentiles “replaced” the original people of Yisra’el and that gentiles are YAHUAH’s new bride, called “the Church”. This entity usurped the name Yisra’el and quickly caused the “falling-away” from Torah. The salvation plan became tied to “sacraments” and “sacramental grace” dispensed through the teaching of the Nicolaite priesthood. What you are holding in your hand (YAHUAH’s inspired word) stands in direct conflict with the Catholic timeline of Dogmas and the establishment of the “priesthood-laity” division (Nicolaitanism). The fact that Sha’ul (Paul) was not called a ring-leader of the “sect of the Christians” (Acts 24:5) should be strong evidence that “Christianity” didn’t exist among the early believing followers of Yahusha. To get to the root of when “Gentiles” were first offered entry into the Covenant to become fellow citizens of Yisra’el (Yisra’el being the “Body” of Mashiach, not the “Church”), all a person must do is read Acts chapter 15 slowly and carefully. One of the logical questions this chapter addresses is whether or not an adult male convert must be physically circumcised; but there still remains another question.
Someone was moved to ask this: “I have been pondering over something for years and wonder if you might have the answer or can shed some light on it? It’s about the Jerusalem Council at Acts 15. Why did they only tell the gentiles to abstain from meats offered to idols, from blood and from things strangled and from fornication?”
Reply: The major issue at the Yerushalayim council was how to bring the former gentiles
into the fold, especially considering these folks were steeped in all sorts of Pagan ideas and practices that needed to be halted entirely. The four things they needed to change right away were those practices that directly dealt with how they lived and worshipped their idols. They could not serve YAHUAH doing those same things! The four things had to do with what was to be stopped and then they could continue to learn how to live according to YAHUAH’s instructions by hearing “Mosheh” read in the synagogues.
“Mosheh” is a reference to Torah and the opportunity to hear it would come every weekly Shabbath.
Here is the K.J.V. rendering of the area of the text that addresses these four things, with the concordance number for each Greek word used: Act 15:28 For G1063 it seemed good G1380 to the G3588 Holy G40 Ghost, G4151 and G2532 to us, G2254 to lay G2007 upon you G5213 no G3367 greater G4119 burden G922 than G4133 these G5130 necessary things G1876
Act 15:29 That ye abstain G567 from meats offered to idols, G1494 and G2532 from blood, G129 and G2532 from things strangled, G4156 and G2532 from fornication: G4202 from G1537 which G3739 if ye keep G1301 yourselves, G1438 ye shall do G4238 well, G2095 Fare ye well. G4517
The Greek term “Hagios Pneuma” (Holy Ghost / Spirit) would be RUACH ha’QODESH in Hebrew, of course. They turned single words into short phrases as their best-guess to the meaning for each Greek word. For one thing, the word “meat” is not in the sentence at all, but only the Greek terms “apechomai” (abstain) and “eidolothuton” (idol sacrifice/ service/offering). This would include a great deal, such as participating in ANY pattern of Pagan idol servitude, such as going to a party and lifting a cup to toast “the gods”, or celebrating on a day that is only derived from a Pagan background (such as Saturnalia), even if it had been “cleansed” and turned into another meaning. And, it would also include the offering of “meat” to an idol. But we know that Sha’ul explained that we could eat the meat that had been offered to an idol, but not if it caused a brother to stumble (1 Cor. 8:4). Eating meat and offering it to an idol are two different things.
The word “blood” (aima) can mean literally eating blood because an animal had been throttled and not properly “bled” before cooking it, but it can also be taken to mean “bloodshed”. Both interpretations are certainly applicable.
To take this short message as it is without understanding the context and what the gentiles were used to doing and claim that people born out of the Covenant may do whatever they wish except for the four things, is misinterpreting a great deal. If this were the case, it would mean that former gentiles (who have become fellow citizens of Yisra’el through the covenants) could covet, lie, misuse YAHUAH’s Name (cast it to ruin), ignore Shabbath, bully and misuse their parents and still be fine with Yahuah. The four things all seem to point to the practices that went on at the Pagan temples, including “porneia”, which was central to idol-worship, through the temple prostitutes.
After stopping their idolatrous patterns of living, the next step for these who were “turning” to YAHUAH was to hear the instructions of YAHUAH:
Act 15:21 For G1063 Moses G3475 of old time G1537, G744, G1074 hath G2192 in every city G2596, G4172 them that preach G2784 him, G846 being read G314 in G1722 the G3588 synagogues G4864 every G2596, G3956 Sabbath day. G4521
It’s amazing that Christianity managed to miss this blatant reference to the weekly Shabbath. It must be a stronghold (teaching of error), because the word “Sabbath” is used over twice as much in the renewed Covenant Writings than in the other four-fifths of Scripture (known as the “Old Testament”). A former Gentile who repents of sinning against YAHUAH’s Torah and accepts YAHUSHA’s blood offering as the permanent solution as payment for all their sins, then joins as a fellow citizen of Israel at the time of their immersion into YAHUSHA’s Name. All that is needed is the repenting person, water and the calling upon the Name of YAHUSHA for salvation. No organization or committee needs to approve the new convert; the approval can only come from YAHUSHA, Who called them to repentance. They have entered the Covenant and are no longer gentiles, but fellow citizens of Yisra’el ~ YAHUSHA’s body, His wife and bride. Remaining in the Covenant means they continue to obey the Commandments (Covenant, Torah) and hold to the testimony of Yahusha.
YAHUAH: “Repent and turn back from your idols and turn back your faces from all your abominations. Cast away from you all the transgressions by which you have gone wrong and make for yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die O house of Yisra’el? I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies, so turn back to Me and live!”
“For the day is near, My day is near! It is a day of clouds and the time of the nations. I shall set fire and execute judgments and pour out My wrath on Sin. When I execute judgments all flesh shall know that I am YAHUAH. Now is the time that Yisra’el should seek My face and My way. Now is the time to be instructed. O wrong one you shall certainly die!”
“I shall make My Set-apart Name known in the midst of My people Yisra’el and not let it be profaned any more. The gentiles shall know that I am YAHUAH, the Set-apart One in Yisra’el. They shall see My judgment which I have executed and My hand which
I have laid on them. On that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Yisra’el so that the fish of the sea and the birds of the heavens and the beasts of the field and all creeping creatures that creep on the earth and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places and every wall shall fall to the ground.”
“It is not too late. For the Word of YAHUAH is living and working and sharper than any two-edged sword cutting through even to the dividing of being and spirit and of joints and marrow and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. There is no creature hidden from His sight but all are naked and laid bare before the eyes of Him with whom is our account. Therefore, since we have a great High Priest Who has passed through the heavens, YAHUSHA the Son of Elohim, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest unable to sympathize with our weaknesses but One who was tried in all respects as we are, apart from sin. Therefore, let us come boldly to the throne of favor in order to receive compassion and find favor for timely help.” Hebrews/Ibrim 4:12-16
WHAT DOES THE DAY OF YAHUAH HAVE TO DO WITH BURSTING INTO FLAMES?
The very last thing people will do on this Earth is within their power to decide. It’s a choice we all have to make; and making no choice is a choice.
We can choose to enter into the Covenant with the Creator of the Universe, YAHUAH, or to BURST INTO FLAMES (the other choice).
This should be a no-brainer, if there ever was one, but, most people have decided to burst into flames.
There’s a very important job before each of us. What we do with our time while in the flesh can have a profound affect on whether our “neighbor” will be redeemed, or burst into flames.
Over the years, we have all listened to the criticisms of other brothers and sisters that wanted to debate the proper manner of: 1. Dress.
3. New moons.
- Male circumcision of adult Gentile converts.
- How certain things should not be used to publish/proclaim the Name of YAHUAH (bumper stickers, shirts, etc., are too “profane” for them, as if there are other things that are not “profane”).
- Controversial topics such as “rapture”
- Not teaching about “the Trinity”, or the true Name as “JESUS”, because people have been healed in that name and recognize it better, because “it’s English and that’s what WE speak”.
- When to assemble.
There’s no end to the debates, but at the end of the day, or should we say the “times of the Gentiles”, very few of these debates will matter.
What will matter most is whether people have been enabled to learn of YAHUAH’s Covenant during their time spent in this world, not whether they were wearing a kipa or believed something; what matters is how they WALKED. If they walked in repentance and turned back in obedience to the Torah, believing in YAHUSHA’s atoning death and being immersed, calling upon His Name for the forgiveness of their sins, they will be saved.
If you have gotten this far and have endured to the end and are reading this article, you have been enabled to learn of YAHUAH’s Covenant and His coming reign. Those who endure to the end will be saved. Mark 13:13
A FEW THINGS THAT CAN’T HELP US:
The “sacraments”, organizations, traditions and other people’s good report on how we are fine human beings is of no value toward preventing us from bursting into flames.
- Not just “believing”, but “obeying and believing” is the goal. We must know YAHUSHA and be known by Him.
- If we claim to know Him but do not obey His Commandments we are liars: “We know that we have come to know Him if we obey His Commands. The man who says, ‘I know him,’ but does not do what He commands is a liar and the Truth is not in him. But if anyone obeys His Word, (Elohim)’s love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in Him: whoever claims to live in Him must walk as YAHUSHA did.” 1 John/Yahuchanan 2:3-6
So, the next time someone tells you that observing “the Sabbath” is not necessary for you, right away you know that YAHUSHA would not tell you that. The person that says that to you is not “walking” as YAHUSHA did and if they continue down that road, they will burst into flames. If by telling you to rest on the Sabbath I am teaching you one of YAHUAH’s Commandments, how much trouble will I get into, or you, for obeying? Would YAHUSHA be able to say,
“I never knew you: depart from Me, you that work lawlessness. Therefore whosoever hears these sayings of Mine and does them, I will liken him to a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended and the floods came and the winds blew and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that hears these sayings of Mine and does them not, shall be likened to a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended and the floods came and the winds blew and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.” Matt 7:23-27
“The Son of man shall send forth His angels and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend and them which do lawlessness; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.” Matt 13:41-42
Those making the choice to ignore the warnings are heading down a broad road, galloping and exploding as they go and will ultimately meet their end by bursting into flames. What fun is there in that?
“Wail, for the day of (YAHUAH) is near; it will come like destruction from the Almighty. Because of this, all hands will go limp, every man’s heart will melt. Terror will seize them, pain and anguish will grip them; they will writhe like a woman in labor. They will look aghast at each other, their faces aflame. See, the day of (YAHUAH) is coming –a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger–to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it. The stars of heaven and their constellations will not show their light. The rising sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light. I will punish the world for its evil, the wicked for their sins.” Isa 13:6-11
“But the day of (YAHUAH) will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live (set-apart) and (pious) lives as you look forward to the day of (YAHUAH) and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire and the elements will melt in the heat.” 2 Peter 3:10-12
“For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine teaching). Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
They will turn their ears away from the Truth (Torah, teaching) and turn aside to myths.” 2 Tim 4:3-4
And, it will get them roasted alive.
For ISRAEL, those in His Covenant, protection will be provided: “When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” Isa 43:2
THE DAY OF YAHUAH IS APPROACHING and ON THAT DAY:
“When you see this, your heart will rejoice and you will flourish like grass; the hand of YAHUAH will be made known to His servants, but His fury will be shown to His foes. See, YAHUAH is coming with fire and His chariots are like a whirlwind; He will bring down His anger with fury and His rebuke with flames of fire. For with fire and with His sword YAHUAH will execute judgment upon all men and many will be those slain by YAHUAH. ‘Those who consecrate and purify themselves to go into the gardens, following the one in the midst of those who eat the flesh of pigs and rats and other abominable things–they will meet their end together,’ declares YAHUAH.
‘And I, because of their actions and their imaginations, am about to come and gather all nations and tongues and they will come and see My Chabod.’” Isa 66:14-18
“Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come and who can stand?’” Rev 6:15-17
“I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice He judges and makes war. His eyes are like blazing fire and on His head are many crowns. He has a Name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood and His Name is the Word of Elohim. The armies of heaven were following Him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Out of His mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron scepter. He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of EL SHADDAI. On His robe and on His thigh He has this Name written: Melek of Melekim and Sovereign of sovereigns.” Rev 19:11-16
Tickling the ears with the concept of “unconditional love” is part of the “lie”, a strong delusion sent because people have refused to receive a love for the Truth.
The false teacher will teach that YAHUAH loves “unconditionally”, right up to the point He tosses them into the lake of fire.
There are conditions and Scripture is a long record of those conditions. How could they miss the point? Wrath and love are mutually exclusive.
PREPARING FOR THE DAY OF Wrath
WHAT SHOULD WE BE DOING?
The times ahead appear to be like a gathering storm and many people are growing “fearful” and hoping to store food, water and various supplies – even weapons – so they can survive the horrors that may soon come upon the world.
A question in this regard was asked:
“Someone told me that in a few years we should come into a very rough time. That we have to prepare yourselves for that time and that we have to begin to practice a sort of survival life. Are you well informed of it? And if not, do you have another explanation? If you have time, please answer me.”
Answer from Scripture: I know there are many people who are very concerned about being prepared and there is some advice in YAHUAH’s Word that warns us to prepare for approaching evil. The day that is rapidly approaching for the destruction of the unrighteous is truly going to be catastrophic, however we are not to be destroyed in this wrath, but rather “changed” in the twinkling of an eye. Our hope is not in our arm of flesh, or what we can prepare beforehand, but rather we look forward to the hope of being clothed with immortality and all the physical preparedness we try to store away for the day will be of no use to us whatsoever.
We must put our efforts in teaching others to get into the Covenant for their salvation, not store away water, blankets and food. This is simply my viewpoint and I certainly mean no criticism of those who are preparing for the Day of YAHUAH in a different way.
YAHUSHA told us to be anxious for nothing, for each day has enough trouble of its own.
Tomorrow is going to have troubles and the next day, but we should focus on the day we are living in and leave worrying about tomorrow for that day. What if we had stored water, blankets, tools and food and then had to flee quite suddenly? Most likely we could only carry a small amount; and if the trap closes on the world suddenly, we have been told to NOT go back and get anything from our house. Our trust needs to be in YAHUSHA alone and He will feed and clothe us if we are in need of those things, especially in the day of wrath. His wrath is not for us and we must focus on working to bring others to the Light of His Word (Torah), so they will not be caught in the fire that is about to consume the Earth. That is the best way to prepare for the time ahead.
Psalm 27:5 “For in the day of evil He hides me in His booth; In the covering of His Tent He hides me; On a rock He raises me up.”
Proverb 22:3 “A clever one foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple go on and are punished.”
Some balance has to be found between these two verses. Our priority is to be fruitful. If we are killed, we are those found “under the altar” at Rev. 6:9-11:
“And when He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the beings of those having been slain for the Word of Elohim and for the witness which they held, and they cried with a loud voice, saying, ‘How long, O Master, set-apart and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?’
And there was given to each one a white robe and they were told that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brothers, who would be killed as they were, was completed.” Rev. 6:9-11
One day YAHUAH shall make known who is His and who is dedicated to Him. He has warned us and given us notice over and over again in many languages. When we see those around us start to burst into flames because YAHUAH has created what is unheard of then we all shall know that these men and women have scorned YAHUAH.
~ Last Call ~ Yahuah’s Cup of Wrath ~
YirmeYahu was not a “bull frog”!
Whose Cup Will You Be Sipping From?
Listen to Me, you who pursue righteousness, seeking YAHUAH: Look to the rock you were hewn from and to the hole of the pit you were dug from. Look to Abrahim your father and to Sarah who bore you. For he was alone when I called him and I blessed him and increased him.
Listen to Me, My people and give ear to Me, O My nation, for the Torah goes forth from Me and My right-ruling I set as a light to peoples. My righteousness is near, My deliverance shall go forth and My arm judges peoples. Coastlines wait upon Me and for My arm they wait expectantly.
Listen to Me, you who know righteousness, a people in whose heart is My Torah: Do not fear the reproach of men nor be afraid of their reviling. My righteousness is forever and My deliverance to all generations”
Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of YAHUAH! Awake as in days of old, everlasting generations. Awake, awake yourself! Rise up, O Yerushalayim; you who have drunk at the hand of YAHUAH the cup of His wrath. You have drunk the dregs of the cup of reeling and drained it out.
Both ruin and destruction are coming upon you – who is sorry for you? How shall I comfort you? See, the days are coming when it is no longer said, ‘YAHUAH lives who brought up the children of Yisra’el from the land of Mitsrayim but YAHUAH lives who brought up the children of Yisra’el from the land of the north and from all the lands where I drove them.’ For I shall bring them back into their land I gave to their fathers.
See, I am sending for many fishermen to fish for them. After that I shall send for many hunters to hunt for them from every mountain and hill and out of the holes of the rocks. My eyes are on all their ways; they have not been hidden from My face nor has their crookedness been hidden from My eyes. First I shall repay double for their crookedness and their sin because they have defiled My land with the dead bodies of their disgusting matters and have filled My inheritance with their abominations.
Remember, that I YAHUAH shall be your strength, your stronghold and your refuge in the day of distress. The gentiles shall come to Me from the ends of the earth and say, “Our Fathers have inherited only falsehood and futility and there is no value in them.” Why did they make mighty ones that were not mighty ones? Therefore see, I shall cause them to know this time My hand and My might! They shall know that My Name is YAHUAH.
There shall be a wine cup of wrath from My hand to the nations to whom I send it. They shall drink, shake and go mad because of the sword that I am sending among them. They can not refuse to take My cup to drink. “They will drink!” Wait ~ Watch ~ Witness!
I am beginning to bring evil upon the city which is called by My Name. Should they be entirely unpunished? They are not going unpunished because I am calling for a sword on all the inhabitants of the earth. I shall roar from on high and utter My voice from My set-apart dwelling place. I shall roar mightily over My fold, a shout as those who tread the grapes against all the inhabitants of the earth. Tumult shall come to the ends of the earth because I have a controversy with the nations. I shall enter into judgment with all flesh. The “wrong”, I shall give to the sword. In that day the slain shall be from one end of the earth to the other end of the earth. They shall not be lamented, gathered or buried for they are dung on the face of the ground. Howl you shepherds!
See, those whose judgment was not to drink of the cup have certainly drunk. Will you go unpunished? No, but certainly drink of it. Your land has been filled with sin against Me, the Set-apart One of Yisra’el. Flee from the midst of her and let each one save his life! Do no be cut off in her crookedness for this is the time of My vengeance and I shall counterbalance and neutralize her with repayment of My wrath.
“Babel” was a golden cup in My hand, making drunk all the earth. The nations drank her wine and that is why the nations went mad! “Babel” shall suddenly fall and be broken. Howl for her! Take balm for her pain – if so be that she might be healed/heeled.
It is My plan against “Babel” to destroy it because it is My vengeance for My Hekal and My plan shall be established to make the land a ruin without inhabitant. Please, come out of her midst, My people! Let everyone deliver his being from My burning displeasure.
This people respect Me with their lips but their heart is far from Me. In nothing do they worship Me but teaching as teaching the commands of men. Their leaders are guilty of lawlessness by rejecting My reign and replacing My commands by substituting the commands of men. O “foolish” man what have you grown? Your fruit is no good.
A nation who is not with Me is against Me and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad. Because of this I say to you, all sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men but the blasphemy against Me, YAHUAH, the Spirit shall not be forgiven man. Whoever speaks against Me, YAHUAH, the Set-apart Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him either in this age or in the age to come. 1 Corinthians 3:17-18
Either make the tree good and its fruit good or else make the tree rotten and its fruit rotten. For a tree is known by its fruit. By the fruit of righteousness I know who is with Me and accepts My everlasting Reign and who is against Me by rejecting My Name, My Reign and the life blood of it. My people have been fooled and lead astray and they have chosen to forget My Name and profane
My Sabbaths and Principles by holding fast to their man made laws and traditions. Now is the time to ask: Was that smart?
