HUNGER AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS
Much can be said about being precise with the Word of YaHVaH. . “Thy Word have I hidden in my heart, that I may not sin against Thee.”
The Faith in YaHVaH is not slip-shod, like a loose horse shoe which keeps skewing to the left and right as the animal aims for a straight gate, then gashes your leg against a post.
Nor is faith like an unskilled surgeon who says to the patient, “I’m going to try to cut out that tumor, but I’m short on time; so maybe I can get most of it. It should be ‘close enough’
The opposite words for TRUTH are “error, mistake, fault, blunder, boo-boo, slip-up, inaccuracy, miscalculation”. Also: mix-up, bungle and flounder. Add to that “goof, foul up, mess up”. These are traits of the clumsy, lazy, inept Neo-pseudo believers.
Synonyms (nouns) for TRUTH “certainty, reality, fact, accuracy, precision, exactness, veracity, truthfulness, honesty, integrity, fidelity, uprightness, sincerity.”
John 14:17 Even the Spirit of TRUTH; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him..
17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. “
When we walk and talk with the Savior, we ought to be precise in our our relationship with Him, which involves adherence to the Word.
Definitions: Here are some synonyms for “uncertain and uncertainty - “vague, doubtful, undecided, indecisive, tentative, in doubt”.
“Uncertainty” ~ ambiguity, insecurity, improbability, vagueness.
Confusion ~ perplexity, uncertainty, misunderstanding, bewilderment (disorder, chaos, turmoil, muddle, mistake).
Awkwardness, disorientation, leads to loss of confidence.
Romans 1:18 For the wrath of YaH is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness..
Simple math such as 1+1+1=3 shows us the time of Messiah’s death, burial and resurrection. Study Matthew 12:38-40; 28:1. Messiah died at the end of Aviv 14, late afternoon on Passover, just minutes before Aviv 15 that High day Sabbath of Unleavened Bread. (Matzo).
Aviv 17 before sunset of Aviv 18, YaHOSHA Messiah was risen.
Definitions of DECEIT: fraud, lying, untruthfulness, corruption, treachery, duplicity, cheating, trickery.
When we substitute Sunday morning communion for Passover evening (Aviv 14) and Sun-day resurrection and the pagan Easter, for Aviv 17 the date of Messiah’s resurrection, we are involved in all the traits mentioned such as errors mistakes, faults, blunders, uncertainty.
When we call on YaHVaH’s Name, not erroneous titles, not false substitutes, using the Yod Hay VAV Hay, and not Yod Hay WaW Hay, that is, “YaHVaH” not YaHWeH, we are addressing Him with proper respect. Now that we know His Name, why not begin using it?
In Hebrews 6 the Apostle declared “Let us go on to perfection”. Matthew 5:48 “Become perfect, even as your heavenly Father.” And as Messiah said to the woman caught in adultery, “Go and sin no more”.
But we need to be blessed and continue to obey the Torah.

BE READY, HUNGER AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS
1 Samuel_15:22 And Samuel said, Hath YaHVaH as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of YaHVaH? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
Matthew 5:48 “Become PERFECT as your heavenly Father is PERFECT”.
Deuteronomy_30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
Josh_24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve YaHVaH, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve YaHVaH.
1 Kings 18:21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if YaHVaH be Elohim, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
Ki 18:37 Hear me, O YaHVaH, hear me, that this people may know that thou art YaHVaH Elohim, and that thou hast turned their heart back again.
Exodus 32:26 Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on YaHVaH'S side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.
:34 Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them.
:35 And YaHVaH plagued the people, because they made the calf, which Aaron made.
Act 5:29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey Elohim rather than men.
The Elohim of our fathers raised up YaHOSHA, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.
Him hath Elohim exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Pure Spirit/Holy Ghost, whom Elohim hath given to them that obey him.
Exodus 23:20 Behold, I send an Messenger before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.
Exo 23:21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in Him.
Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord/Master/YaHVaH, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Many will say to me in that day, "Lord, Lord (YaH, YaH) have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?"
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: Build Your House on the Rock.
VAIN WORDS: IT DOES MATTER!
Recently, YeshaYahu (IsaiYah) 64:7 came to mind: 'And there is none that calleth upon Thy Name, that stirreth-up himself to take hold of Thee..' Previously, the prophet stated in 63:16 'Doubtless Thou art our Father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Yisraeyl acknowledge us not: Thou, O YaHVaH (not l-o-r-d) art our Father, our Redeemer; Thy Name is from everlasting".
The newest response to Scripture truth is, "IT DOESN'T MATTER"! Perhaps we ought to ask, "Then, what DOES matter?"
For example a believer might open a discussion to encourage someone with, "Messiah's Name is of utmost important. We now know what His Name is not.
Here is the response of: "It doesn't matter."
Acts 3-5 and Acts 4:12 "There is no other Name given among men whereby we must be saved!" YaHVaH the Father says, "It DOES matter".
Whether we quote the Scriptures about Torah, the law, the Feast Days, Clean and Unclean, pagan holidays and above all, His Name, YaHVaH and YaHOSHA Messiah, some answer "It doesn't matter" or "Whatever!!" It doesn't matter for or whatever doctrine they disagree with. What if YaHVaH tells THEM "Whatever"?
2 Tim 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of YaH, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
3:17 That the man of YaH may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: FEAR YaHVaH and keep His commandments: for this is the whole of man. For YHVH shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”
Psalm 66:18 If I regard/consider iniquity in my heart, YaHVaH will not hear me.
Rev_21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
We believe in:
Infallibility and authority of the Scriptures (called the Bible) which is the Word of Yahvah, John 1 “In the beginning was the WORD”.
Next is with as much import is PASSOVER AND RESURRECTION. (Ex 12). Passover is always the 14th, Resurrection is always the 17th (Matthew 12:40; 28:1).
In strong contrast the idea that the death of Messiah was not Aviv (Nisan) 14, but it was a day of the week (commonly called ‘Good Friday') is in gross error. It is always on Passover, Aviv 14 “At the end of the day, before the High Day of Unleavened Bread”.
The Resurrection of Messiah is always on Aviv 17 (not on any certain day of the week).
Question: When did your Father die, a Sunday or Thursday? The Risen Messiah is coming soon. Make sure your garments are spotless before the Day of YaHVaH.
LOVE AND HATE
PSALM_139:22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.
Rom_9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
Malachi 1:1-5 Esau have I hated.
Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I YaHVaH thy Elohim am a jealous Elohim, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
Thou shalt not take the name of YaHVaH thy Elohim in vain; for YaHVaH will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it pure.
Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
But the seventh day is the sabbath of YaHVaH thy Elohim: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
20:11 For in six days YaHVaH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore YaHVaH blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.
A Common Saying: “My parents made me go to Church so now I don’t have to."
Compare with: “My parents made me go to Ballgames, so now I don’t go. There’s too many hypocrites there. I don’t like the music they play. I don’t like the way the pitcher combs his hair and how he talks.
No one in their right mind will turn down a good ball game (not on a Sabbath of course). HYPOCRITE!
Thanks to you we are on the page for the world to see, to accept or reject or ignore. As someone said of the lukewarm, "Let us afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted (the righteous).
