Do Ewe Know The Word?

“Yahweh your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your midst, from your countrymen, [and] to him you shall listen. [This is] {according to all that you asked} from Yahweh your God at Horeb, on the day of the assembly, {saying}, ‘{I do not want again to hear} the voice of Yahweh my God, [and] I do not want to see again this great fire, so that I may not die!’ And Yahweh said to me, ‘They are right [in] what they have said. I will raise up a prophet for them {from among their countrymen} like you, and I will place my words into his mouth, and he shall speak to them {everything that I command him}. {And then} the man that will not listen to my words that he shall speak in my name, I will hold accountable. However, the prophet that behaves presumptuously by speaking a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, and who speaks in the name of other gods, then that prophet shall die.’ And if you say {to yourself}, ‘How can we know the word that Yahweh has not spoken to him?’ [Whenever] what the prophet spoke in the name of Yahweh, the thing does not take place and [does] not come [about], that [is] the thing that Yahweh has not spoken to him. Presumptuously the prophet spoke it; you shall not fear that prophet.” D’varim/Deuteronomy 18:15-22 (LEB) Note that Moshe informs the people that one day another would come that would be like him; this one cannot be someone who would go against the instructions Moshe was charged with delivering to Isra’el. If someone is like another then they cannot do something contrary to what the first individual did or they would be dissimilar. Therefore Y’shua could not be that Prophet had he went against the Torah. So those who believe that the Master did away with our requirement to honor the Father’s will, by doing it for us, turn him into a false prophet or a Satan/Adversary.

“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. I will ask the Father, and he will send another Companion, who will be with you forever. This Companion is the Spirit of Truth, whom the world can’t receive because it neither sees him nor recognizes him. You know him, because he lives with you and will be with you. “I won’t leave you as orphans. I will come to you. Soon the world will no longer see me, but you will see me. Because I live, you will live too. On that day you will know that I am in my Father, you are in me, and I am in you. Whoever has my commandments and keeps them loves me. Whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them.” Judas (not Judas Iscariot) asked, “Lord, why are you about to reveal yourself to us and not to the world?” Jesus answered, “Whoever loves me will keep my word. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Whoever doesn’t love me doesn’t keep my words. The word that you hear isn’t mine. It is the word of the Father who sent me. “I have spoken these things to you while I am with you. The Companion, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I told you. “Peace I leave with you. My peace I give you. I give to you not as the world gives. Don’t be troubled or afraid. You have heard me tell you, ‘I’m going away and returning to you.’ If you loved me, you would be happy that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than me. I have told you before it happens so that when it happens you will believe. I won’t say much more to you because this world’s ruler is coming. He has nothing on me. Rather, he comes so that the world will know that I love the Father and do just as the Father has commanded me. Get up. We’re leaving this place. Yochanan/John 14:15-31 (CEB) Once again Y’shua reminds us that the words he speaks are not his but his Father’s. How often do people claim that the Teacher was able to give us a new set of instructions that do not require us to abide in Yah’s will? Any one who claims to adhere to the teachings of Y’shua and proclaims they do not have to do anything, disputes the Masters own words. This is just another way to try and serve two masters.

Why would Y’shua be willing to lay his life down for our redemption, for violating the Covenant, only to then abrogate the same agreement? This would make the sacrifice he gave a meaningless wasted effort. His Father, Yah, is not the author of confusion. So therefore, who is the only other entity that could introduce this chaos? It is not who many think it is. “God is not a human who lies or a mortal who changes his mind. When he says something, he will do it; when he makes a promise, he will fulfill it.” B’midbar/Numbers 23:19 (CJB) Yah, himself tells us who the liar is … WE are the liar that promotes chaos. WE do this by perverting the message he gave us through the Prophets.

And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up , and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled : and after that he must be loosed a little season. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image *, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished . This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. And when the thousand years are expired , Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about , and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away ; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened : and another book was opened , which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Chazon/Revelation 20:1-15 (KJV)

How many realize Yechezk’el/Ezekiel chapters 37 through 39 are summed up in the 20th chapter of Chazon? So why are so many expecting the battle of Gog and Magog to occur any day now? This is impossible if we believe the Eternal has given us the outline of what we are going to do. Many have been deceived regarding the RE-NEW-ED Covenant and the restoration of the 12 tribes in the Promised Land by being told they have already happened. If this is so … then the Scriptures are worthless, based on the evidence of what we see happening in the world today. The Jewish state of Isra’el is only part of the ongoing fulfillment of the Most High’s promise to Avraham/Abraham, Yitz’chak/Isaac, and Ya’akov/Jacob.

Those who only read the New Testament and believe that the RE-NEW-ED Covenant is a different Covenant then what Moshe taught us, are deceived. This is because those people who hold this thought line do not realize the Torah is the sole foundation for all of the rest of the Bible. If anyone is ignorant of this aspect of revelation, they will jump to an erroneous conclusion. Expunging the LAW and the PROPHETS will cause us to violate the Master’s own words when he spoke what is commonly referred to as the sermon on the mount. The audience Y’shua was speaking to were Isra’elites who needed to know Yah’s instructions had not been done away with.

It is apparent that most Christians are totally unaware who the intended recipients of the New Testament are. Saying: Thou shalt not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name. And he called him Israel. And said to him: I am God almighty, increase thou and be multiplied. Nations and peoples of nations shall be from thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins. And the land which I gave to Abraham and Isaac, I will give to thee, and to thy seed after thee. B’resheit/Genesis 35:10-12 (DRA) In the above verses, the words nation/Goy and nations/Goyim are derived from Hebrew and are also commonly translated as gentile or heathen. This definition of Goy is to tell us this people are not in the Covenant of Ya’akov’s descendants. This is not the Mosaic Covenant as it is the 4th level of the pacts with YHWH, while the 3rd is with Ya’akov.

Knowing that Ya’akov’s heirs would violate the agreement with Elohim prior to Moshe receiving the instructions at Mount Sinai should cause people to re-evaluate what they have been taught. As each level of Covenant is more stringent than the previous level, how much was Isra’el guilty of while they were in Egypt. The Torah given by the Eternal to Moshe is a step up from the one they were to abide by in Egypt.

With this information in mind, let us move forward to the time our forefathers were dwelling in the Promised Land. We began to discard the rules of the Most High in favor of our own rules; which led to the events following Melekh Shlomo’s/King Solomon’s reign. This is the beginning of our current dilemma. Not understanding the difference between the two Kingdoms is why people swallow the garbage that is thrown to the pigs.

Though I were to write out for him ten thousand things from My Torah, they are regarded as something strange. Hoshea 8:12 (TLV) The Prophet Hoshea is delivering Yah’s message to his own people Efraim/Northern Kingdom/10 Tribes/House of Isra’el/Samaria. This is who Y’shua is referring to as the Lost Sheep in Mattityahu/Matthew 15:24. The house of Y’hudah/Jews are not currently part of the WHOLE HO– USE OF ISRA’EL, as this will only occur with the Mashiach’s/Messiah’s return.

The Kingdom of Heaven will not be determined by skin color or religion but by the will of the Father. What is His will? He has already told us what His will is. Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? Yesha’yahu/Isaiah 53:1 (NKJV) What is the report that the Prophet is referring to? Let us examine what Sha’ul/Paul says about the Law; Therefore, faith is from the hearing in the ear, and the hearing in the ear is from the Word of Elohim. Romans 10:17 (AENT) Compare this to the following: Then, faith is by obedience and obedience by the word of Alaha. (APNTT) This word the Apostle refers to is the Torah given to Moshe … because the New Testament writings did not yet exist. Ya’akov/James, the Master’s brother, spoke the following words regarding those returning to Torah. After these things I will return, And I will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen; And I will build again the ruins thereof, And I will set it up: That the residue of men may seek after the Lord, And all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, Saith the Lord, who maketh these things known from of old. Wherefore my judgment is, that we trouble not them that from among the Gentiles turn to God; but that we write unto them, that they abstain from the pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from what is strangled, and from blood. For Moses from generations of old hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath. Ma’asei/Acts 15:16-21 (ASV) Notice James and Paul are telling the people the same thing.

Ya’akov/James points out what day Moshe/Moses is to be heard … on Shabat/Sabbath. An important detail that most are likely unaware of is that the word Shabat is derived from the Hebrew root where the number 7 also comes from. Many languages throughout the world confirm this fact as they also name the seventh day the Sabbath. “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me.”
Sh’mot/Exodus 20:2-3 (ESV) In the Hebrew text the word LORD is actuallyיהוה /YHWH and is declaring who our authority is and what follows are His directions for His people. How do we know who His people are? The answer is the following; “Speak also to the children of Yisra’el, saying, ‘Most assuredly you shall keep my Shabbatot: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that you may know that I am the LORD who sanctifies you. You shall keep the Shabbat therefore; for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day is a Shabbat of solemn rest, holy to the LORD. Whoever does any work on the day of Shabbat shall surely be put to death. Therefore the children of Yisra’el shall keep the Shabbat, to observe the Shabbat throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between me and the children of Yisra’el forever; for in six days the LORD made heaven and eretz, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.'”
Sh’mot 31:13-17 (HNV)

One witness shall not stand to testify against a man for any iniquity, or for any fault, or for any sin which he may commit; by the mouth of two witnesses, or by the mouth of three witnesses, shall every word be established. And if an unjust witness rise up against a man, alleging iniquity against him; then shall the two men between whom the controversy is, stand before the Lord, and before the priests, and before the judges, who may be in those days. And the judges shall make diligent inquiry, and, behold, and unjust witness has borne unjust testimony; has stood up against his brother; then shall ye do to him as he wickedly devised to do against his brother, and thou shalt remove the evil from yourselves. And the rest shall hear and fear, and do no more according to this evil thing in the midst of you. D’varim 19:15-20 (LXX-B) Anyone who says they are in the Covenant with Y’shua and declares another set of rules, other than Torah, is a false witness. Remember transgressing the Shabat falls under the death penalty. How many are guilty of lying about the Most High by saying His Son changed His Way to another way.

In the 12th verse (in red) of Chazon 20, listed above, what is Scriptures definition of the Book of Life? Sadly very few know this is speaking of the Torah. Also verse 13 (in red) tells us we will be judged by our WORKS, not our feelings. This is describing, what is thought of as the term, the White Throne Judgment. Not considering the sequence in Chazon chapters 20 through 22 allows people to put things out of order.

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and the sea no longer is. And I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from YAHWEH, having been prepared as a bride, having been adorned for her Husband. And I heard a great voice out of Heaven, saying, Behold, the tabernacle ofYAHWEH is with men! And He will tabernacle with them, and they will be His people, and YAHWEH Himself will be with them as their Elohim. And YAHWEH will wipe away every tear from their eyes. And death shall be no longer, nor mourning, nor wailing, nor will there be pain any more; for the former things have passed away. And the One sitting on the throne said, Behold! I make all things new. And He says to me, Write, because these Words are faithful and true. And He said to me, It is done! I am the Aleph and the Tav, the Beginning and the Ending. To the one thirsting, I will freely give of the fountain of the Water of Life. The one overcoming will inherit all things, and I will be Elohim to him, and he will be the son to Me. But for the cowardly and unbelieving, and those having become sinful, and to murderers, and fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and to all liars, their part will be in the Lake burning with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. And one of the seven cherubs came to me, he having the seven bowls being filled with the seven last plagues, and spoke with me, saying, Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb. And he carried me in spirit onto a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, holy Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from YAHWEH, having the glory of YAHWEH. And its light was like a very precious stone, as a jasper stone, being clear as crystal, and having a great and high wall, having twelve gates, and twelve cherubs at the gates and names having been inscribed, which are of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel. From the east, three gates; from the north, three gates; from the south, three gates; and from the west, three gates. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. And he speaking with me had a golden reed, that he may measure the city, and its gates, and its wall. And the city lies four cornered, even its length as much as the width also. And he measured the city with the reed at twelve thousand furlongs; its length and width and height are equal. And he measured its wall, a hundred and forty four cubits, a measure of a man, which is of a cherub. And the structure of its wall was jasper; and the city was pure gold, like pure glass. And the foundation of the wall of the city having been adorned with every precious stone: The first foundation, jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald; the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprasus; the eleventh, hyacinth; the twelfth, amethyst. And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; respectively each one of the gates was of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, as transparent glass. And I saw no sanctuary in it, for the Master, YAHWEH Almighty is its sanctuary, and the Lamb. And the city had no need of the sun, nor of the moon, that they might shine in it, for the glory of YAHWEH illuminates it, and its lamp is the Lamb. And the nations of the ones saved will walk in its light; and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. And its gates may not at all be shut by day, for no night will be there. And they will bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it. And there shall not enter it any thing that defiles, or he who practices abominations and lies, but only the ones having been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb. Chazon 21:1-27 (HRB)

Let us look at verse 8 (in red) of Chazon chapter 21 above and take note of who is not allowed in the city – LIARS. According to what criteria is a liar defined? Only in the Torah is where we find this information. How do we get into the city? We have to go through one of the 12 gates, verses 10-12 (in magenta) established by the Father. There is no other means to enter this city. Interestingly, Yochanan/John is told that Yerushalayim/Jerusalem is the Bride. What is a city? … it is people, not buildings. According to verses 22-27 (in blue) there are people outside the gates of the city who will be bringing offerings to the ONE in the city. In the past there were those who redefined this section as Heaven and Hell; which is obviously not being stated as such by Y’shua. We are pointing this out to upset the apple cart of TRADITION.

And he showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of Elohim and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And no longer shall there be any curse, and the throne of Elohim and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. And they shall see His face, and His Name shall be upon their foreheads. And night shall be no more, and they shall have no need of a lamp or the light of the sun, because יהוה Elohim shall give them light. And they shall reign forever and ever. And he said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true. And יהוה Elohim of the set-apart prophets has sent His messenger to show His servants what has to take place with speed. “See, I am coming speedily! Blessed is he who guards the words of the prophecy of this book.” And I, Yoḥanan, saw and heard these matters. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the messenger who showed me these matters. And he said to me, “See, do not! For I am your fellow servant, and of your brothers the prophets, and of those who are guarding the words of this book. Worship Elohim.” And he said to me, “Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, because the time is near. “He who does wrong, let him do more wrong; he who is filthy, let him be more filthy; he who is righteous, let him be more righteous; he who is set-apart, let him be more set-apart. “And see, I am coming speedily, and My reward is with Me, to give to each according to his work. “I am the ‘Aleph’ and the ‘Taw’, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last. “Blessed are those doing His commands, so that the authority shall be theirs unto the tree of life, and to enter through the gates into the city. “But outside are the dogs and those who enchant with drugs, and those who whore, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and all who love and do falsehood. “I, יהושע, have sent My messenger to witness to you these matters in the assemblies. I am the Root and the Offspring of Dawiḏ, the Bright and Morning Star.” And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And he who hears, let him say, “Come!” And he who thirsts, come! And he who desires it, take the water of life without paying! For I witness to everyone hearing the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to them, Elohim shall add to him the plagues that are written in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, Elohim shall take away his part from the Book of Life, and out of the set-apart city, which are written in this Book. He that bears witness of these matters says, “Yes, I am coming speedily.” Amĕn. Yes, come, Master יהושע! The favour of our Master יהושע Messiah be with the set-apart ones. Amĕn. Chazon 22:1-21 (ISR98)

Let us analyze verses 1-2 (in red) taking into account the Tree of Life and its function. Remember the following: And He said to Adam, “Because you listened to your wife’s voice and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘Do not eat from it’: The ground is cursed because of you. You will eat from it by means of painful labor all the days of your life. It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. You will eat bread by the sweat of your brow until you return to the ground, since you were taken from it. For you are dust, and you will return to dust.” Adam named his wife Eve because she was the mother of all the living. The Lord God made clothing out of skins for Adam and his wife, and He clothed them. The Lord God said, “Since man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil, he must not reach out, and also take from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever.” So the Lord God sent him away from the garden of Eden to work the ground from which he was taken. He drove man out, and east of the garden of Eden He stationed cherubim with a flaming, whirling sword to guard the way to the tree of life. B’resheit 3:17-24 (HCSB) The Tree of Life is vital to humanity and the Eternal is offering us the opportunity once again to have access to His residence. This is through the act Y’shua carried out on the stake. Humanity/Adam needs this chance to avoid our doom.

Verses 14-15 (in magenta) tell us who will have access to the Tree of Life. This requires obedience to His will so that we might have the right to partake of its fruit. As in chapter 21, there are people outside the city gates who are not dead … but are alive. What is going on here?

Without the Tanakh/OT quotes and references, the 1st century writings of the talmidim/disciples would only compose a few pages; which would probably look like a bunch of gobbledygook. There is nothing in the B’rit Chadashah/New Testament that is new, but explained to us so we can better understand what the Prophets were charged with telling us.

“Come out of her, my people! Run for your lives! Run from the fierce anger of the LORD. Do not lose heart or be afraid when rumors are heard in the land; one rumor comes this year, another the next, rumors of violence in the land and of ruler against ruler. For the time will surely come when I will punish the idols of Babylon; her whole land will be disgraced and her slain will all lie fallen within her. Then heaven and earth and all that is in them will shout for joy over Babylon, for out of the north destroyers will attack her,” declares the LORD. “Babylon must fall because of Israel’s slain, just as the slain in all the earth have fallen because of Babylon. You who have escaped the sword, leave and do not linger! Remember the LORD in a distant land, and think on Jerusalem.” Yirmeyahu/Jeremiah 51:45-50 (NIV) This section of the Prophet’s writing is the basis for Chazon chapter 18. The bright spot is even near the end, we still have the chance to come out of the lies we have inherited … Baruk Yah!

Shalom Aleichem
