ABIDE and PERSEVERE
1 John 2:28 "And now, little chldren, ABIDE in Him, that, when He shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before Him at HIS coming."
Perseverence: Ephesians 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of Yah/elohim:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
1 Samuel 12:14 Continue following Yah behold, YaHVaH.
12:14 If ye will fear YaHVaH, and serve him, and obey his voice, and not rebel against the commandment of YaHVaH, then shall both ye and also the king that reigneth over you continue following YaHVaH your Elohim:
:15 But if ye will not obey the voice of YaHVaH, but rebel against the commandment of YaHVaH, then shall the hand of YaHVaH be against you, as it was against your fathers.
VAV (not waw, as in YaHVaH)
Psa 119:41 Let thy mercies come also unto me, O YAHVAH, even thy salvation, according to thy word.
So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in thy word.
And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in thy judgments.
So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever.
And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.
Acts 14:21 Exhorting to continue in faith. And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch,
Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God/elohim.
And when they had ordained them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to YaHVaH, on whom they believed.

:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

YaHOSHA answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
John 7: 17 If any man do His will, he shall know doctrine. YaHOSHA answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
Joh 7:17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God/elohim, or whether I speak of myself.
Joh 7:18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
1 John 1:8-10; 2:1-3 (10) Conditional "IF" promises.
Baptized - Romans 6:1-4; John 3,, 1 Peter 3:21; Gal 3:27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Messiah have put on Messiah.
Immersed: Ephesians 4:5; One YaHVaH, one faith, one baptism,
Eph 4:6 One God/elohim and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

:16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.
2 Kings 17:32-41 (or all) Ashtorath/Easter Jer 7:16-19; 44:17
1 Kings 11:5 For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the Mighty elohim of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.
:6 And Solomon did evil in the sight of YaHVaH, and went not fully after YaHVaH, as did David his father.
:33 Because that they have forsaken me, and have worshipped Ashtoreth the elohim of the Zidonians, Chemosh the elohim of the Moabites, and Milcom the elohim of the children of Ammon, and have not walked in my ways, to do that which is right in mine eyes, and to keep my statutes and my judgments, as did David his father.
1Ki 11:34 Howbeit I will not take the whole kingdom out of his hand: but I will make him prince all the days of his life for David my servant's sake, whom I chose, because he kept my commandments and my statutes:

1Ki 11:36 And unto his son will I give one tribe, that David my servant may have a light alway before me in Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen me to put my name there.
Matthew 24. End times order of events: "What to look for when the end is close". IsaiYah 24
Fulfilled! Meaning of the word becomes alive when we think of JOY. Has your joy ever been fulfilled? If it has, then how would the law (Torah) have been fulfilled? To fullness! Complete! Wholesome! To the maximum!
It only leaves us thirsty to seek more of YaHVaH's Word. Let YaHVaH be FIRST in your home! get a hard copy of The Scriptures and not just reading the "overhead" or on a computer. I like a so called Giant print.
RELIGION DEFINED and DEFENDED
The word “religion” has become taboo in most Churches of the world (other than the Church of the Frigidaire.).
This word study will present a healthy understanding of this religion found mostly in James 1.
James 1:26 G2356 (religion, worshipping) Threskia: Religion and worshipping
“If any man among you seem to be religious G2357 (ceremonious in worship), and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion G2356 religion-belief-faith” is vain.“
James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before YaH and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
Pure G2513 katharos (clean, PURE)
FAITH G4102 “Pistis”. Credence, moral conviction, assurance, belief, faith, fidelity, the system of religious truth itself.
Hebrews_6:12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
Heb_10:38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
The Scriptures have confirmed the word “religion”. It can be abused, but intrinsically it is a good thing to have faith, belief, creed, religion and worship.
TITHE BEFORE TIPPING
Lev/Vyikra_27:30 And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is YaHVaH'S: it is (holy) separated unto YaHVaH.
Rev_2:26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
Deu/Deb_14:22 Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year.
:28 At the end of three years thou shalt bring forth all the tithe of thine increase the same year, and shalt lay it up within thy gates:
26:12 When thou hast made an end of tithing all the tithes of thine increase the third year, which is the year of tithing, and hast given it unto the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that they may eat within thy gates, and be filled;
Matthew_23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
Lukas_11:42 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of Elohim: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
The HalleluYah Scriptures can accept your free-will donations.
YaHVaH asks for a return of 10 % (Tithe means 10%).
All paganism and names of false gods that have traditionally been used in translation when pertaining to the the Father, His Son and His people have been avoided, and in many cases retain a Hebrew transliteration if the word is linked to paganism.
Psalm 16:4 "The sorrows of those who run after another one are increased; I would not pour out their drink offerings of blood, Nor take up their names on my lips.” (Tehillim [Psa] 16:4)
YaHVaH asks for 10%, do we blush? The world asks for 20% Tips. If we do not, we feel embarrassed.
Witnessing the Name of YaHVaH
First emphasize following YaHVah and obeying His Torah. Confess His Name, and that Messiah rose from the dead, see Romans 10:9.
We must confess, believe, repent, be immersed and see Revelation 12:14.
If the person is OPEN, then we can supply the information in Scripture like His Name HoseYah (Hosea) 2:16-17 "In that day saith YHVH that thou shall call me Ishi (My Man) and shalt call me no more Ba-a-li (Lord), 17: I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth and they shall no more be remembered by their name, and in that day...." Hebrew # H 1168 concerning His Name.
YeremiYah 2:23; 23:17, 27. Look up.
If the person wants to STAND and shout, ask them "Please sit down; THEN we will reason together." THEN we will OPEN the Scriptures and have a study, being rational, not angry; being open-minded. We should not deal with bad or angry attitudes. Proverbs tells us it is foolish to argue with them. Pv 15-18 esp. 15:32 and 15:12 "A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him, neither will he go unto the wise. A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance..." A New Testament command is "Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves".
Scholarship by itself is only an end in itself in only becoming more intellectual!
But to lovingly hear the Word, study, obey the Scriptures (old or new) and let His Pure Spirit change my lifestyle, making sacrifices of my time, money and resources, is a lofty Spiritual goal we achieve. Praise to Him YaHOSHA our Husband of the Bride..
"Thanks be to Him Who only bestows to us benefits, gifts, eternal life and hope of eternity!"
It is YaHVaH's personal plan He has given us to learn and respond to all He offers: Repentance, running from sexual lewdness, eschewing pagan customs and substitute titles in stead of YaHVaH's true NAME..
Helping sisters, children and brothers, and moving up to Higher Heights in the freedom of Messiah's everlasting immutable Standard of His Word. We CAN know Him, YaHVaH and His blessed Son "Lo, I am contained in the volume of the book".
Some things we cannot know at this time:
When YHVH teaches something which is clear, WE NEED TO BE CLEAR. Where the Torah instruction or other teaching is VAGUE or unclear, WE NEED TO BE VAGUE. If YaHVaH has spoken that He would send His Son to free us then we have a sure Word. We need to be CLEAR! IsaiYah 7:14 "Behold a VIRGIN shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call His Name, Immanuel (YaH with us). 8:8; 9:6 "For unto us a child is born...His Name Wonderful, Counsellor, the (God) Elohim, the EVERLASTING FATHER, The Prince of Peace... IsaiYah 53 is about YaHOSHA's impalement on the tree, and so many prophecies about the Messiah King of Yisryael (my spelling). Past, present and future, YaHVaH says to keep His Sabbaths; it is clear that we want to go up and keep HIS Feasts. I want to go ON. and Pursue righteousness with Brothers, sisters True Believers and proceed forth into our desired haven.
"How amiable are thy tabernacles O YaH of armies/hosts." Ps 42, 81, 84
Tell your professors, Jewish mystics, spiritualists, to be ready for something far better, more lasting, fully satisfying and the works of Ruach ha Kadosh which are set-apart as YOUR OFFERING to our High Priest YaHOSHA and even unto YaHVaH the Father of all the big universe. YaHVaH told Job that he knew very little about the ways of YaHVaH. Ecc 12:12-14 Hallel YaHVaH.
Exhalt YaHVaH the Father, The Son YaHOSHA Messiah and His Spirit the Ruach ha Kadosh. Acts 2; 1 Corinthians 12 and 14.
Blessings. TsephanYah at YahvahYahweh.name
