All the congregation

This week’s Torah portion (Va’yaqhel – Exo 35:1 – 38:20) shows us something important in the Hebrew. Verse one says: “Then Moshe gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together, and said to them, “These are the words which YHVH has commanded you to do:”

The Hebrew used here for “all the congregation of the children of Isreal” is “et-kol-aydat b’nei Yisrael”. Why is this important? We will get to that, but here are three more witnesses of the same, in the same chapter. Look at verse 4.

Verse 4 reads: “And Moshe spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, “This is the thing which YHVH commanded, saying:”

The Hebrew for “all the congregation of the children of Israel” says: “el-kol-aydat b’nei Yisrael”. Almost identical.

Verse 20 is a little different but basically the same. The verse in English reads: “And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moshe.”

The Hebrew for “all the congregation of the children of Israel” is “kol aydat b’nei Yisrael”.

THEN in verse 29 Moses clinches it. He ties it off nice and neat so no one can question what “b’nei Yisrael” (children of Israel) entails. Verse 29 in my NKJV reads: “The children of Israel (b’nei Yisrael) brought a freewill offering to YHVH, all the men AND women (eesh V‘eesha) whose hearts were willing to bring material for all kinds of work which YHVH, by the hand of Moshe, had commanded to be done.”

The point is this: B’nei Yisrael (בני ישראל) can mean men AND women. Why all the fuss? For the answer to that, turn in your bibles or search engine to Numbers 15:37-41. Where it says in verse 37, Again YHVH spoke to Moshe, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel: Tell them to make tassels on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and to put a blue thread in the tassels of the corners. 39) And you shall have the tassel , that you may look upon it and remember all the commandments of YHVH and do them, and that you not follow the harlotry to which your own heart and your own eyes are inclined, 40) and that you may remember and do all My commandments, and be holy to Elohechem. 41) Ani YHVH Elohechem, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be to you Eloheim: Ani YHVH Elohechem.

Many times it has been told to me that women are not required to wear tassels, or tzitzit, as we call them, but these verses clear up any doubt. Plus, don’t you think that women need reminding to do His commandments too? Of course we do! 😇

Landlord – part 1

On my birthday, Monday, Feb 15 of this year (2021), Normandy, TN had an ice storm. Ice storms and snow storms are a delight to me so it was a wonderful surprise to wake up to but it set in motion a string of events that I feel legally responsible to keep up with. The ice storm knocked out our power which also knocked out our ability to have water. (No power to pump the water to the house.) So starting Monday the 15th our count begins.

On Wednesday of the same week we had a cedar tree fall across our driveway preventing us from leaving the house by vehicle. The tree falling was most likely due to 3″ of snow falling the night before. Keep in mind that we are still out of power and water on Wed. A neighbor’s farm hand pushed the tree out of the driveway. Not our landlord.

If I remember correctly the temperature that week never went above freezing.

Our landlord is also our neighbor. His name is C. Whitney. On Monday, the first day without power and water he took his family to his office to stay. He did not bleed the pipes to the pump house. Why? Negligence.

On Wednesday of the next week, Feb 24, Craig finally fixed the pump. While Craig’s father was present Johnny asked Craig how much he owed him. He asked him only because there was a witness present, otherwise Craig would have told him privately that Johnny owed him $425.00 to replace the pump. We are the tenants. He is the landlord and is responsible for these things. So believe it or not, he is charging us for the pump.

Johnny took him an Advance Financial money order today of $100.00 and he refused it, saying that Advance Financial may not have the $100.00 to cover it. (LOL! Yes, there are people like this out there, functioning in society…barely.)

I feel compelled to mention that the last time the pump went out Craig paid for it, as he should have, so this time he is breaking precedent.

I also feel compelled to add that last summer our refrigerator went out and Craig told Johnny that he had to buy one himself. So he did. Then last September 2020, our stove went out but we have just been using a toaster oven to bake things. Surprisingly, bundt cakes, like the one I baked for myself for my birthday turned out delicious! A week later. 😉🍰

To be continued…

Grace

Just the other day I was talking to my aunt Caca, whom I adore, and she mentioned that a mutual friend of ours was doing an online study on the book of James at a church in Nashville. She said that I may enjoy seeing this dear friend of ours so I listened to his first lesson the other night. Let me say that Caca probably worries about me because I haven’t attended a “church” since around 2011, so I knew the angle she was coming from. (😇) Nowadays, if I ever listen to any bible “teacher” my antenna go up and every single thing they say goes through 2 filters. #1 is the Torah (Gen-Dt) filter. If it passes that filter it has to pass through the Yeshua filter. (If it passes #1 it always passes #2. Yeshua never contradicts Torah.) So I’m listening to his lesson and the very first verse he uses is Rom 10:9. Uuughh… (Yeshua nullifies that verse with Matt 7:21, by the way.)

But the incentive for writing this blog is that every time I speak to, or in this case, listen to a church goer the main point of the teaching/conversation is “grace”. If you have ever studied grace out from Yeshua’s teachings it is a very, very short study. See below.

If you study about “grace” only by using the Lamb’s apostles’ writings it is still very short. 👇

The problem is the self-appointed, Benjamite Pharisee “apostle“. He takes that word and runs with it! And then he says that even if an angel comes to you preaching a different gospel than his then let him be cursed! (Gal 1:8) Here are Saul’s references/teachings on grace. (I omitted salutations and closings. Thank heavens!) 👇

After researching all that false teaching I needed to clear my soul with Yeshua’s and John’s words, so here they are for you too. Be blessed!

And:

Back to the James lessons from my friend…I guess he won’t mention that James is writing to contradict Saul’s faith-only teachings, even sometimes as if he’s writing directly to him. 😕 The one proof of that is explained below. 👇

And when James says he’s writing to the 12 tribes which are scattered abroad, he is writing to the TWELVE tribes scattered abroad. Not just to Jews which only comprise Judah and some of Benjamin. (Jas 1:1) <deep breath…>

In closing, the first lesson was more of an introduction because the epistle of James was hardly addressed, albeit other writers were mentioned like Bonhoffer and Carl Bart (who I had never even heard of).  It was good at least getting to see my friend. He and his family will always hold a special place in my heart.

Yeshua in the Torah

There are some important witnesses of Yeshua in this week’s Torah portion that I thought I would share. If you’re not sure what it means when I say that Yeshua is represented as the stand-alone Aleph Tav in the older testament, please see the blog post “the Mysterious Aleph Tav (את)” click here to get you caught up. 😉👍

This week’s portion is called “Ki Tisa”/ “when you take” and it comprises Exo 30:11 through 34:35, or to the end of chapter 34. The first witness I want to draw your attention to is in 33:12. Our verse reads:

Then Moshe said to YHVH, “See, You say to me, ‘Bring up this people.’ But You have not let me know את whom You will send with me. Yet You have said, ‘I know you by name, and you have also found grace in My sight.’

Moses in Exodus 33:12
The stand-alone Alef Tav is highlighted on the right in pink.

The short (46 second) Youtube for this witness of Yeshua is linked here

Yeshua was with the children of Israel every step of the way through their journeys. As the apostle John tells us in 1 John 4:12 – “No one has seen God at any time…” and that would include Moshe. Like I’ve said before – John gets it! He knows that it was Yeshua in the wilderness speaking face to face with Moshe (Exo 33:11)! But I’m excitedly getting ahead of myself. 😇 In the above example Moses is asking the Father to let him know the Alef Tav, Yeshua, whom the Father has sent with them. Right after this is when the Father puts Moshe in the cleft of the rock and passes His glory by Moshe, describing Himself in the process. It is here that we have another witness of Yeshua, but as a tittle, not an Aleph Tav.

In Exo 34:7 is where our tittle (jot and tittle of Matt 5:18) is found. The Hebrew word for “keeping”, as in “keeping mercy” is “notzer” (נצר), which has the same root as “Nazareth” (נצרת) and “Nazarene” (נצרי). The Youtube of this tittle can be found here. See photo below of Matt 2:23.

Our tittle in Exo 34:7 is an enlarged nun (נ) (pronounced: noon) in the word notzer (נצר). Throughout all of the older testament in the hand written scrolls stigmatized letters are passed down from copy to copy. Some letters are enlarged, some are written smaller, some are written as floating letters. Some letters are written backward and one letter (vav) (ו) is bisected. These are all called tittles by Yeshua. Jots are dots written above certain words, as in Gen 33:4, and my favorite, Deut 29:29.

Enlarged nun in “notzer” of Exo 34:7

The Hebrew nun has a numerical value of “50” and represents a fish. (What symbol do you think of when you think of Christianity?) The action the nun represents is a “quickening of life”. I heard Monte Judah describe it perfectly as when you approach a stream of water and as you kneel down to catch a fish it darts off, almost quicker than the eye can perceive. The nun represents Yeshua in those ways. The Jubilee year is the 50th year and 120 Jubilees is understood to be the time when Yeshua comes back. As YHVH says in Gen 6:3 – “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” This 120 years is understood as Jubilee years. One hundred twenty times 50 = 6,000 years. Just in time for Yeshua’s thousand year reign of peace. Plenty of people lived past the age of 120 years after YHVH said that. What He said had a much deeper meaning.

The next witness is in Exo 34:11, which literally says in the Hebrew:  Guard for yourselves את… (Or:  Guard for yourselves Alef Tav…) The youtube video #19 shows this witness in greater depth. See the Youtube video here

The last example that I will show today is in Exo 34:28. The verse reads, with the Alef Tav reinserted:

So he was there with YHVH forty days and forty nights; he neither ate bread nor drank water. And He wrote on the tablets את words of the covenant, Ten Words (Commandments).

So in this example we have Yeshua, represented as the stand alone Alef Tav as the words of the covenant. The 10 Commandments. It is scary to me how many so-called “followers of Christ” claim that Yeshua’s everlasting words written in Genesis through Deuteronomy and the prophets have been “done away with”. It is no wonder why His return is with fire. There is also a short Youtube explaining this witness of Yeshua also. Just click here

Exo 34:28b

These are not the only witnesses of Yeshua in this Torah portion but they are just a few to highlight for you. Yeshua is intertwined all over the older testament (Tanakh). The Tanakh is alive because Yeshua is alive as the Word made flesh!

Song on the Brain

The other day I woke up with a song tugging at my heart and my brain won’t let it go. You may know this old church hymn. (Even though I haven’t graced the doors of a church in ages since I follow Yeshua.) The song goes like this:

🎵 Earnestly, tenderly Jesus is calling 🎵 calling, o sinner, come home 🎵

🎵 Come home…come home…ye who are willing, come home. 🎵

🎵 Earnestly, tenderly Jesus is calling. Calling, o sinner, come home. 🎵

That’s all I can remember of it. I consider this song to be a sign. 😀

“Softly and Tenderly” (Jesus is Calling) was written by Will Lamartine Thompson (1847-1909).

Prayers of the Saints

Rev 5:8 KJV — And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.

Rev 8:3 KJV — And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.

Rev 8:4 KJV — And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.

Exo 30:7 – And Aaron shall burn thereon sweet incense every morning: when he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn incense upon it. 8 And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at even, he shall burn incense upon it, a perpetual incense before YHVH throughout your generations.

A Post For Russ – Frequencies

Hey Russ! Since you are into body improvement and meditation right now and since you’re probably familiar with the Solfeggio tones used in most meditation I thought I’d help you broaden your frequency knowledge just a bit. 😉 Do you know where the original 6 Solfeggio (UT, RE, MI, FA, SO, LA) tones come from? Here’s a hint: It comes from what most Christians would consider to be the most boring chapter in the bible. Go get your bible and I’ll show you. Go ahead.

Turn in your bible to Numbers, chapter 7. If you’ve never read this chapter, do that first. Really. You need to, to understand.

It wasn’t until I read Leonard G. Horowitz and Joseph S. Puleo’s book, Healing Codes For the Biological Apocolypse, that I realized this secret.

If you have 6 different colored pens, great. This is what I did. It makes the key very easy to see. Now that you’ve read the chapter go through it and underline in one of your colored pens all the verses that mention what day they offer. For instance, verse 12, which begins: – “And the one who offered his offering on the first day…” (verses 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60, 66, 72, & 78) Before we go any further, you will need to be familiar with reducing numbers down to one digit. For instance, with the above numbers, if you reduce 12 to one digit you would take 1 + 2 which gives you 3. Easy! Eighteen would be 1+ 8 = 9, and so on. Now reduce all the rest of the above numbers to one digit.

You will notice that a pattern begins to emerge. 3, 9, 6, 3, 9, 6, etc. 396 just so happens to be our first Solfeggio tone, on the Hertz scale, of UT! (Also called DO.) You can see where this is going. The second verse in our twelve sets of 6 verses begins like this: “His offering was one silver platter, the weight of which was one hundred and thirty…” Underline these verses with a different color than the first and reduce the verse numbers (13, 19, 25, 31, 37, 43, 49, 55, 61, 67, 73, & 79) down to one number. What do you get? 😀 The second Solfeggio tone (RE) of 4, 1, 7, 4, 1, 7,… 417!

The rest of the chapter will give you the other four healing frequencies.

Unbeknown to Joey, by doing the mathmatical exercises he had received, he further integrated his left and right brain to function more holistically. The whole brain function is greater than the sum of its left and right brain parts. So in the process of writing down these equations, and doing the math, he further attuned himself to receive spiritual messages. And this, he advanced, is available to everyone who goes through the process individually.

Pg 24, chapter 1 of Healing Codes For the Biological Apocalypse, Leonard G. Horowitz, D.M.D., M.A., M.P.H. and Joseph S. Puleo, N.D.

You see? YHVH’s wisdom trumps all! Now, can you imagine how powerful those frequencies, paired with the Hebrew language, that spoken, created the world and arranged the universe, would be??! Mind boggling! Our grandfather who was apparently pretty high in a certain secret society probably (most certainly) knew all this stuff. I just pray his forefront desire was to love YHVH with all his heart, soul and strength above his love of knowledge. If so, I look forward to spending a lot of time with him (and you!) in the next life! If not, he made the same crucial, eternal mistake as satan.

I highly recommend reading the Healing Codes For the Biological Apocalypse but even more so your bible. 😘

I love you lil bro. 💓

LEGOs in the Bible

In this week’s Torah portion of Exodus 25:1- Exo 27:19 we have an instance of LEGOs being used in the tabernacle construction.

Several years ago, a Jewish man told a group of us that the sockets under the boards of the tabernacle in the wilderness were fitted like LEGOs. It was not until this year that the idea of the first LEGOs being used in the tabernacle made perfect sense. You see, the two master craftsmen of the holy articles of the tabernacle were Betzalel, of the tribe of Judah, and Aholiav, of the tribe of Dan. (Exo 31:1-11) They were given wisdom to construct everything.

If you do a search of the origin of LEGOs on the internet, you will discover that they originate in Denmark. Just this year I learned from Yair Davidy, who does in-depth studies on Youtube of where the 10 Northern tribes of Israel migrated to, that Denmark was where Dan migrated to. Some call that country Danmark. It was also known for being a Viking homeplace, which makes sense because the tribe of Dan was the rear guard of all the tribes, so they were formitable warriors.

All who were numbered of the forces with Dan, one hundred and fifty-seven thousand six hundred – they shall break camp last, with their standards.

Num 2:31 NKJV

So now, when you read in Exodus 26:19, “You shall make forty sockets of silver under the twenty boards: two sockets under each of the boards for its two tenons.”, you can picture LEGOs coupling the boards together and know that one of the first Vikings ever, Aholiav, built it! 😉😀

Two Witnesses

Often in Christian or Hebrew circles the subject of the two witnesses of Revelation will surface with questions of – Who do you think the two witnesses are? Most often the choices are either Moses, Elijah or Enoch. Elijah and Enoch because they never died in the Bible accounts but were swept up to heaven. But there is another, more probable set of choices that no one considers.

We are given three accounts of the following saying of Yeshua:

Mat 16:28 – “Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.”

Mar 9:1 – And He said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you that there are some standing here who will not taste death till they see the kingdom of Eloheim present with power.”

And:

Luk 9:27 – “But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the kingdom of Eloheim.”

Two points that all three accounts make clear. 1) “Assuredly” means it will happen and that He is not speaking hypothetically or metaphorically. 2) He is speaking of more than one person. “Some standing here” is plural.

The Apostle Yeshua loves, John, gives us another clue. That it is him! But then he makes it sound like it isn’t. Here is the account:

John 21:22 – Yeshua said to him, “If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me.”

You see, John being alive from 2,000 years ago till now would be easy! The tree of life is still on earth! Just guarded by cherubim.

Gen 3:24 – “So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.”

And Yeshua verifies the access:

Rev 2:7 – “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of Eloheim.”

So the only question that remains is – Who is the other witness with John who Yeshua was speaking plurally about? 😉

Fruits…Not Words

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are *ravenous wolves.  16) You will know them by their fruits…” – Matt 7:15 & 16a

There is an account in the beginning of Genesis that paints this example perfectly. It begins in Gen 3:1.

“Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which YHVH Eloheim had made. And he said to the woman, “Has Eloheim indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”  And the woman saod to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, Eloheim has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.'”  Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For Eloheim knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like Eloheim, knowing good and evil.”

First, the serpent tests Eve. After she answers, the serpent actually tells her a truth, nevertheless a half truth. She didn’t immediately die but she did get knowledge of good and evil. But through the serpent’s deceit and coersion, Eve and Adam were thrust out of Eloheim’s presence.

If you were to have a discussion with any denomination church goer on the importance of following Yeshua by following our Father’s commandments, they will argue tooth and nail by using Paul’s/Saul/שאול writings. They go to his writings every single time invariably. In essence, arguing against Yeshua the Messiah and the words of the Father. The fruit of Saul/שאול is rotten. The road he has paved is very wide.

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” ~Yeshua – Mat 7:13, 14

* ravenous wolves

Gen 49:27 – Benjamin is a ravenous wolf; in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.”

Rom 11:1 – “…For I also am an Israelite…of the tribe of Benjamin.”

And:

Philippians 3:5 – “…of the tribe of Benjamin,…”
