For the time has come for the judgment to begin. It begins with the household of God; and if it starts with us, what will the outcome be for those who are disobeying God’s Good News? “If the righteous is barely delivered, where will the ungodly and sinful end up?” So let those who are suffering according to God’s will entrust themselves to a faithful Creator by continuing to do what is good. Kefa Alef/1 Peter 4:17-19 (CJB) If trusting the Creator is what is good, then who is the Creator Kefa is referring to? Let us examine evidence presented by another of the 12 talmidim/disciples, Yochanan/John where he describes this entity. In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. He was present originally with God. All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being. Yochanan 1:1-3 (AMP) The one being referred to as the Creator, is none other than Y’shua the Son of Elohim. One of the most complicated aspects of Y’shua is comprehending, where the Son of Elohim is definitively separate from the son of a human being/man. Many fail to consider both these factors when dealing with the Mashiach; who must live Torah and also must be able to die, which is only achieved by sinning. As the aspect that is part of Yah cannot sin, then only the human part can take on the disobedience that allows the death penalty to be carried out. Accomplishing this came about by becoming the sacrificial offering for sin required by the Torah as our substitute/fine when hands are laid on the head of the offering. In so doing the guilty party transfers their guilt to the sacrifice being presented, which is exactly what occurred to Y’shua. Completely comprehending everything about the Master is not a matter that we will understand until the time comes when the Father allows us to see more than we currently do.
Unfortunately too many reject Y’shua’s message and substitute one that is totally anti-Torah. The Master himself refutes this concept throughout his teachings, as he constantly reminds us he speaks only the words of his Father and only does his Father’s will. I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me. But if another comes in his own name, you will receive him. How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and you do not seek the glory that comes from God alone? “Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father. The one who accuses you is Moses, in whom you have put your hope. For if you were believing Moses, you would believe Me—because he wrote about Me. But since you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?” Yochanan 5:43-47 (TLV) In this encounter the Teacher is pointing out to those who are challenging him that they are not teaching Moshe/Torah but their own tinkerings with those instructions. Y’shua never taught against Torah, as this would put him in complete contrast to the Father. It is also hard to speak against yourself as part of Him is the Word made alive in the flesh.
Let us go back to the wilderness and listen to the words Yah gave Moshe: “Guard to do every command which I command you today, that you might live, and shall increase, and go in, and shall possess the land of which יהוה swore to your fathers. And you shall remember that יהוה your Elohim led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you, prove you, to know what is in your heart, whether you guard His commands or not. And He humbled you, and let you suffer hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, to make you know that man does not live by bread alone, but by every Word that comes from the mouth of יהוה. Your garments did not wear out on you, nor did your foot swell these forty years. Thus you shall know in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so יהוה your Elohim disciplines you, therefore you shall guard the commands of יהוה your Elohim, to walk in His ways and to fear Him. For יהוה your Elohim is bringing you into a good land, a land of streams of water, of fountains and springs, that flow out of valleys and hills, a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey, a land in which you eat bread without scarcity, in which you do not lack at all, a land whose stones are iron and out of whose hills you dig copper. And you shall eat and be satisfied, and shall bless יהוה your Elohim for the good land which He has given you. Be on guard, lest you forget יהוה your Elohim by not guarding His commands, and His right-rulings, and His laws which I command you today, lest you eat and shall be satisfied, and build lovely houses and shall dwell in them, and your herds and your flocks increase, and your silver and your gold are increased, and all that you have is increased, that your heart then becomes lifted up, and you forget יהוה your Elohim who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, from the house of bondage, who led you through that great and awesome wilderness – fiery serpents and scorpions and thirst – where there was no water, who brought water for you out of the flinty rock, who fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your fathers did not know, in order to humble you and to try you, to do you good in the end, you then shall say in your heart, ‘My power and the strength of my hand have made for me this wealth!’ But you shall remember יהוה your Elohim, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, in order to establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is today. And it shall be, if you by any means forget יהוה your Elohim, and follow other mighty ones, and serve them and bow yourself to them, I have warned you this day that you shall certainly perish. Like the nations which יהוה is destroying before you, so you are to perish, because you did not obey the voice of יהוה your Elohim.” D’varim/Deuteronomy 8:1-20 (ISR98)
“Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works. Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else believe on account of the works themselves. Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it. If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.” Yochanan 14:10-17 (ESV) Jesus answered, and said to him: “If any one love me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and will make our abode with him. He that loveth me not, keepeth not my words. And the word which you have heard, is not mine; but the Father’s who sent me.” Yochanan 14:23-24 (DRA) Here Y’shua clearly is referring to himself as the Word from his Father, that is the same one who spoke to Moshe. Since this Word is the same one that Moshe heard at Mount Sinai, then the Master cannot be speaking against himself. Likewise if Sha’ul/Paul really did speak against Moshe/Torah then he would be serving two masters, which Y’shua declared is not permitted in the Kingdom. So those who purport that Sha’ul is releasing us from the bonds of the law; are then turning him into the man of sin/lawlessness of which he himself warns against … anti-messiah.
Hear, O Israel: Thou art to pass over Jordan this day, to go in to possess nations greater and mightier than thyself, cities great and fenced up to heaven, A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom thou knowest, and of whom thou hast heard say, Who can stand before the children of Anak! Understand therefore this day, that the Lord thy God is he which goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the Lord hath said unto thee. Speak not thou in thine heart, after that the Lord thy God hath cast them out from before thee, saying, For my righteousness the Lord hath brought me in to possess this land: but for the wickedness of these nations the Lord doth drive them out from before thee. Not for thy righteousness, or for the uprightness of thine heart, dost thou go to possess their land: but for the wickedness of these nations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee, and that he may perform the word which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Understand therefore, that the Lord thy God giveth thee not this good land to possess it for thy righteousness; for thou art a stiffnecked people. Remember, and forget not, how thou provokedst the Lord thy God to wrath in the wilderness: from the day that thou didst depart out of the land of Egypt, until ye came unto this place, ye have been rebellious against the Lord. Also in Horeb ye provoked the Lord to wrath, so that the Lord was angry with you to have destroyed you. When I was gone up into the mount to receive the tables of stone, even the tables of the covenant which the Lord made with you, then I abode in the mount forty days and forty nights, I neither did eat bread nor drink water: And the Lord delivered unto me two tables of stone written with the finger of God; and on them was written according to all the words, which the Lord spake with you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly. And it came to pass at the end of forty days and forty nights, that the Lord gave me the two tables of stone, even the tables of the covenant. And the Lord said unto me, Arise, get thee down quickly from hence; for thy people which thou hast brought forth out of Egypt have corrupted themselves; they are quickly turned aside out of the way which I commanded them; they have made them a molten image. Furthermore the Lord spake unto me, saying, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people: Let me alone, that I may destroy them, and blot out their name from under heaven: and I will make of thee a nation mightier and greater than they. So I turned and came down from the mount, and the mount burned with fire: and the two tables of the covenant were in my two hands. And I looked, and, behold, ye had sinned against the Lord your God, and had made you a molten calf: ye had turned aside quickly out of the way which the Lord had commanded you. And I took the two tables, and cast them out of my two hands, and brake them before your eyes. And I fell down before the Lord, as at the first, forty days and forty nights: I did neither eat bread, nor drink water, because of all your sins which ye sinned, in doing wickedly in the sight of the Lord, to provoke him to anger. For I was afraid of the anger and hot displeasure, wherewith the Lord was wroth against you to destroy you. But the Lord hearkened unto me at that time also. And the Lord was very angry with Aaron to have destroyed him: and I prayed for Aaron also the same time. And I took your sin, the calf which ye had made, and burnt it with fire, and stamped it, and ground it very small, even until it was as small as dust: and I cast the dust thereof into the brook that descended out of the mount. And at Taberah, and at Massah, and at Kibrothhattaavah, ye provoked the Lord to wrath. Likewise when the Lord sent you from Kadeshbarnea, saying, Go up and possess the land which I have given you; then ye rebelled against the commandment of the Lord your God, and ye believed him not, nor hearkened to his voice. Ye have been rebellious against the Lord from the day that I knew you. Thus I fell down before the Lord forty days and forty nights, as I fell down at the first; because the Lord had said he would destroy you. I prayed therefore unto the Lord, and said, O Lord God, destroy not thy people and thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed through thy greatness, which thou hast brought forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand. Remember thy servants, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; look not unto the stubbornness of this people, nor to their wickedness, nor to their sin: Lest the land whence thou broughtest us out say, Because the Lord was not able to bring them into the land which he promised them, and because he hated them, he hath brought them out to slay them in the wilderness. Yet they are thy people and thine inheritance, which thou broughtest out by thy mighty power and by thy stretched out arm. D’varim 9:1-29 (KJV)
Note that Yah has told Moshe that He is keeping the promises to Avraham, Yitz’chak, and Ya’akov in spite of the rebelliousness of the 12 Tribes. An important factor that we today need to take into account is that the Greater Exodus to come will also involve the same problems our forefathers exhibited in the wilderness. We all need to realize that no one is doing exactly what the Eternal has asked of us, regardless of how much some of us are trying to walk that walk. There will be many among us who will not have tried to keep any of the Most Highs precepts at all, believing that they are no longer obligated/required to do so. We who are trying to the best of our understanding to follow the halacha of Yah are even coming up short. Especially concerning to me are the constant leaning towards the ways of Yarov’am/Jeroboam I/Christianity and the golden calf of self gratification. Remember, once again, the Mashiach told us he was sent only for the Lost Sheep of the House of the Isra’el who are the descendants of the 10 Tribes of the Northern Kingdom. The Jews/House of Y’hudah are not the lost sheep but are the remnant of the 12 tribes dealt with separately because of the promise made to Melech/King David. If you are not familiar with the Northern and Southern Kingdoms of the descendants of the Isra’el, then you need to go back to the 1st book of the Kings (1 Kings) and thoroughly examine the information contained therein (especially chapters 11 & 12). Without this knowledge, one will never fathom any aspect of the B’rit Chadashah/New Testament/New Covenant; which they will most likely come to the wrong conclusions concerning what Y’shua and the talmidim are actually referring to, when they teach concerning the hope and the promise.
At that time YAHWEH said to me, “Cut out for yourself two tablets of stone like the first, and come up to Me, into the mountain, and you shall make for yourself an ark of wood; and I shall write on the tablets the words which were on the first tablets, which you have broken, and you shall place them in the ark.” And I made an ark of acacia wood, and cut out two tablets of stone like the first, and went up into the mountain; and the two tablets were in my hand. And He wrote on the tablets according to the writing, the Ten Words, which YAHWEH had spoken to you in the mountain, out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly. And YAHWEH gave them to me, and I turned and came down from the mountain and put the tablets in the ark which I had made. And they are there, as YAHWEH commanded me. And the sons of Israel pulled up stakes from Beeroth of the sons of Jaakan to Mosera; Aaron died there and he was buried there; and his son Eleazar was acting as priest in his place. From there they pulled up stakes to Gudgodah; and from Gudgodah to Jotbath, a land of water brooks. At that time YAHWEH separated the tribe of Levi, to bear the ark of the covenant before YAHWEH, to stand before YAHWEH and to minister to Him, and to bless in His name, until today. Therefore, Levi has no portion nor inheritance with his brothers; YAHWEH is his inheritance, according as YAHWEH your Elohim spoke to him. And I stayed in the mountain forty days and forty nights, as at the first. And YAHWEH listened to me that time also; YAHWEH did not will to destroy you. And YAHWEH said to me Rise up! Go before the people, causing them to set forward, that they may go in and possess the land which I swore to their fathers, to give it to them. And now, Israel, what has YAHWEH your Elohim asked of you, except to fear YAHWEH your Elohim, to walk in all His ways, and to love Him, and to serve YAHWEH your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your soul; to keep the commandments of YAHWEH, and His statutes which I am commanding you today, for your good. Behold, the heavens and the Heaven of the heavens, the earth and all in it, belong to YAHWEH your Elohim. Only, YAHWEH has delighted in your fathers, to love them; and He chose their seed after them, on you out of all the peoples, as it is today. And you shall circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and you shall not harden your neck any more. For YAHWEH your Elohim, He is the Elohim of Elohims, and the Master of Masters; the great, the mighty, the fearful Elohim who does not lift up faces, nor take a bribe. He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the alien, to give to him food and clothing. And you shall love the alien, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt. You shall fear YAHWEH your Elohim; you shall serve Him; and you shall cleave to Him; and you shall swear by His name. He shall be your praise, and He shall be your Elohim, who has done for you these great and fearful things which your eyes have seen. Your fathers went down to Egypt with seventy persons; and now YAHWEH your Elohim has made you as the stars of the heavens for multitude. D’varim 10:1-22 (HRB)
How many realize that the second set of tablets are a re-giving/renewing of the covenant to Isra’el? What is the Ark of the Covenant? To many forget that the Ark is not the Covenant, but what contains the pact. D’varim informs us where the agreement is to be enacted is in our hearts, our intellect/thoughts by the Hebrew understanding. If we are willing to follow Yah’s teachings then we will receive the promises that the Father has made to us. Feelings have NOTHING to do with what the Eternal desires from us. In the Semitic perspective, logic comes from the heart while emotion is linked to the bowels or kidneys, which shows you how much feelings mean to Yah. This does not mean emotions have no place in our relationship with the Father, but they have a diminished stature compared to reason.
Therefore thou shalt love the Lord thy God, and shalt observe his appointments, and his ordinances, and his commandments, and his judgments, always. And ye shall know this day; for not to your children, who know not and have not seen the discipline of the Lord thy God, and his wonderful works, and his strong hand, and his high arm, and his miracles, and his wonders, which he wrought in the midst of Egypt on Pharao king of Egypt, and all his land; and what he did to the host of the Egyptians, and to their chariots, and their cavalry, and their host; how he made the water of the Red Sea to overwhelm the face of them as they pursued after you, and the Lord destroyed them until this day; and all the things which he did to you in the wilderness until ye came into this place; and all the things that he did to Dathan and Abiron the sons of Eliab the son of Ruben, whom the earth opening her mouth swallowed up, and their houses, and their tents, and all their substance that was with them, in the midst of all Israel: for your eyes have seen all the mighty works of the Lord, which he wrought among you to-day. And ye shall keep all his commandments, as many as I command thee to-day, that ye may live, and be multiplied, and that ye may go in and inherit the land, into which ye go across Jordan to inherit it: that ye may live long upon the land, which the Lord sware to your fathers to give to them, and to their seed after them, a land flowing with milk and honey. For the land into which thou goest to inherit it, is not as the land of Egypt, whence ye came out, whensoever they sow the seed, and water it with their feet, as a garden of herbs: but the land into which thou goest to inherit it, is a land of mountains and plains; it shall drink water of the rain of heaven. A land which the Lord thy God surveys continually, the eyes of the Lord thy God are upon it from the beginning of the year to the end of the year. Now if ye will indeed hearken to all the commands which I charge thee this day, to love the Lord thy God, and to serve him with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, then he shall give to thy land the early and latter rain in its season, and thou shalt bring in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil. And he shall give food in thy fields to thy cattle; and when thou hast eaten and art full, take heed to thyself that thy heart be not puffed up, and ye transgress, and serve other gods, and worship them: and the Lord be angry with you, and restrain the heaven; and there shall not be rain, and the earth shall not yield its fruit, and ye shall perish quickly from off the good land, which the Lord has given you. And ye shall store these words in your heart and in your soul, and ye shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and it shall be fixed before your eyes. And ye shall teach them to your children, so as to speak about them when thou sittest in the house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou sleepest, and when thou risest up. And ye shall write them on the lintels of your houses, and on your gates; that your days may be long, and the days of your children, upon the land which the Lord sware to your fathers to give to them, as the days of heaven upon the earth. And it shall come to pass that if ye will indeed hearken to all these commands, which I charge thee to observe this day, to love the Lord our God, and to walk in all his ways, and to cleave close to him; then the Lord shall cast out all these nations before you, and ye shall inherit great nations and stronger than yourselves. Every place whereon the sole of your foot shall tread shall be your; from the wilderness and Antilibanus, and from the great river, the river Euphrates, even as far as the west sea shall be your coasts. No one shall stand before you; and the Lord your God will put the fear of you and the dread of you on the face of all the land, on which ye shall tread, as he told you. D’varim 11:1-25 (LXX-B)
Once again Elohim distinctly points out the area of the inheritance given to Ya’akov’s progeny. This is a constant declaration by Yah, as to where this inheritance’s confines/limits are to be discerned by those who would receive the promise. Any who portray this heritage to be anyplace other than what is described in scripture are trespassing on another’s territory. As always we want to point out that Yah has given everyone on earth a place which is their own and no one else has a right to lay claim to that area. The Covenant does not change this fact and must never be used to circumvent the will of the Enternal. Do not think that I came to abolish the Torah or the Neviim. I did not come to abolish but to complete. For, omein, truly I say to you, until Shomayim and haaretz pass away, not one yod, not one tag (ornamental flourish), will pass from the Torah until everything is accomplished. Therefore, whoever annuls one of the least of these mitzvot (divine commandments given by Hashem to Moshe Rebbenu) and so teaches Bnei Adam, shall be called katon (least) in the Malchut HaShomayim; but whoever practices and teaches them, this one will be called gadol (great) in the Malchut HaShomayim. Mattityahu/Matthew 5:17-19 (OJB)
Yah has stated to us that if we are willing to follow His instructions He will praise/bless us. Receiving His blessings does not mean He condones all our actions, regardless of whether they are the Fathers will or not. This does not allow us to pat ourselves on the back, even if what we are doing is contrary to Yah’s will. Throughout the history of the 10 tribes there is no respect given to those who would circumvent Torah. The House of Y’hudah has likewise followed its own edicts through the sages/pharisees. In reality Moshe is not regarded as the authority of Isra’el or Y’hudah, they therefore do not see Y’shua as the promised one for all Isra’el. Until this takes place the reconciliation cannot occur per Yirmeyahu/Jeremiah 31 and Yechezk’el/Ezekiel 37. These two prophets are both Neviim/Prophets, Levi’im/Levites of the Kohanim/Priesthood and therefore are not either of the two houses of Isra’el.
When will we acknowledge that the alien among us is entitled to the same protection we are? Why do so many condemn those who come into our countries seeking only the opportunity to better themselves and their families circumstances. These people only wish to make a better life for their children than they currently have themselves. Yah admonishes us to never look on them as pariahs but simply to see them as caring for their offspring. These people are not scum any more than our forefathers should have been considered scum by the Egyptians. As long as we continue to treat other people as less than we are, then we are no different than Mitzraim/Egypt/bondage. No matter where we are on the planet earth, if we are not in the land of the promise we are in bondage. If we continue to treat others as less important, then we have not moved on from Mitzraim/Egypt. How many of the native tribes, such as in the United States, wish they could solve their immigrant problem?
D’varim reminds us that we are not the only thing that is important to the Eternal. And Yahweh your God will clear away these nations from before you little by little; you will not be able to finish them off quickly, lest the wild animals multiply against you. D’varim 7:22 (LEB) This passage is addressing what Isra’el is to do concerning the Canaanites in the land who are in violation of the instructions from the Most High to which they are accountable. Killing off the innocent animals is not part of His plan. Yah cares for all of his creation not just humanity. We are supposed to be the caretakers of his creation. This is where we went off course as human beings, we thought we were the only thing that mattered to the Most High. As long as we maintain this arrogant attitude we will never achieve the status that the Eternal would like for us to have. Returning to the Way of the Creator is the foremost desire of the Father’s heart. When we finally realize this, we will begin the process to return to Eden. Hopefully this will soon take place. We are permitted to kill animals for food, clothing, and other useful purposes, NOT for sport.
I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner—not even to eat with such a person. For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside? But those who are outside God judges. Therefore “put away from yourselves the evil person.” 1 Corinthians 5:9-13 (NKJV) Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are of God; for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit which confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit which does not confess Jesus is not of God. This is the spirit of antichrist, of which you heard that it was coming, and now it is in the world already. Little children, you are of God, and have overcome them; for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are of the world, therefore what they say is of the world, and the world listens to them. We are of God. Whoever knows God listens to us, and he who is not of God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error. Yochanan Alef 4:1-6 (RSV)
How long will those whose eyes have been opened to the truth of the Torah continue to accept the teachings of unbelievers (those who reject Torah) as valid concepts for us to abide in? We left those teachers and their flocks to pursue the Way of the Master with the hope that they have their eyes opened eventually to Y’shua and his Father YHWH. We know that only the Eternal can open their eyes as he did ours. We cannot return to their ways and stay on the path that leads us home to the Kingdom of Yah. Take heed of the warning about lawlessness spoken by the Teacher; Not every one who says to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of the heavens, but he that does the will of my Father who is in the heavens. Many shall say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied through thy name, and through thy name cast out demons, and through thy name done many works of power? and then will I avow unto them, I never knew you. Depart from me, workers of lawlessness. Mattityahu 7:21-23 (DBY)
If we ignore the B’rit Chadashah is founded on the Torah, then we can make up any parameters we desire to achieve our own selfish goals. Beware of wolves in sheep clothing; But there also came to be false prophets among the people, as also among you there shall be false teachers, who shall secretly bring in destructive heresies, and deny the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction on themselves. And many shall follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of, and in greed, with fabricated words, they shall use you for gain. From of old their judgment does not linger, and their destruction does not slumber. For if Elohim did not spare the messengers who sinned, but sent them to Tartaros, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be kept for judgment, and did not spare the world of old, but preserved Noaḥ, a proclaimer of righteousness, and seven others, bringing in the flood on the world of the wicked, and having reduced to ashes the cities of Seḏom and Amorah condemned them to destruction – having made them an example to those who afterward would live wickedly, and rescued righteous Lot, who was oppressed with the indecent behaviour of the lawless (for day after day that righteous man, dwelling among them, tortured his righteous being by seeing and hearing their lawless works), then יהוה knows how to rescue the reverent ones from trial and to keep the unrighteous unto the day of judgment, to be punished, and most of all those walking after the flesh in filthy lust and despising authority – bold, headstrong, speaking evil of esteemed ones, whereas messengers who are greater in strength and power do not bring a slanderous accusation against them before the Master. But these, like natural unreasoning beasts, having been born to be caught and destroyed, blaspheme that which they do not know, shall be destroyed in their destruction, being about to receive the wages of unrighteousness, deeming indulgence in the day of pleasure, spots and blemishes, revelling in their own deceptions while they feast with you, having eyes filled with an adulteress, and unable to cease from sin, enticing unstable beings, having a heart trained in greed, children of a curse, having left the right way they went astray, having followed the way of Bil‛am the son of Be‛or, who loved the wages of unrighteousness, but he was rebuked for his transgression: a dumb donkey speaking with the voice of a man restrained the madness of the prophet. These are fountains without water, clouds driven by a storm, to whom the blackest darkness is kept forever. For speaking arrogant nonsense, they entice – through the lusts of the flesh, through indecencies – the ones who have indeed escaped from those living in delusion, promising them freedom, though themselves being slaves of corruption – for one is a slave to whatever overcomes him. For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of the Master and Saviour יהושע Messiah, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the first. For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the set-apart command delivered unto them. For them the proverb has proved true, “A dog returns to his own vomit,” and, “A washed sow returns to her rolling in the mud.” Kefa Bet 2:1-22 (ISR98)
As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly. Mishlei/Proverbs 26:11 (TNIV) Going back to the teachers we once listened to and giving them credence is in essence the dog returning to its vomit. This is equated to being a fool as we were rescued from our predicament only to put our self back into that situation we were delivered from. Stop wanting to return to Egypt and Babylon. Who the Son has freed should want to stay free, only in Yah’s Way are we free.

- Do Ewe Know The Word? The Prophets clearly tell us that Scripture is not some mystical, magical experience, but a real one on one relationship with our Creator.
