This is TsephanYah and I dreamed I was there at the Feast in ZechariYah 14. In New Jerusalem. We will see Messiah face to face, John 14. Also, Abraham, Yacob, Yitzak, David and those in the Faith chapter Ibrim 11: Including Abel, Enoch, Noah, Sara, Yosef, Moshe, Rahab, Gideon, Barak, Sampson, Yepheth, Samuel and the prophets. I am especially looking forward to fellowshipping with the prophets, “Minor” prophets and finally with all of YaHVaH’s wonderful multitude. This coming Feast of Tabernacles, I am looking forward to seeing sisters and brothers in Messiah. This year it is rubbing elbows with good friends in Messiah. Whether in Jerusalem, Missouri, Oklahoma, Salem, Chicago, Alaska, New York, Hawaii, South America, South Africa or wherever YOU are. In Eternity we may be rubbing elbows with all the great cloud of witnesses of Hebrews 11. Hillbilly heaven! We shall behold the Savior.
Each year and each Scriptural Feast draws us closer to the reality which these Feasts presently foreshadow. 1Corinthians 14:49 “And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.”
Matthew 5:8 “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall SEE YaHVaH.”
1 Cor 13:12 “We see through a glass darkly, but then Face to Face.
Revelation 22:4 “And they shall see His face; and His Name shall be in their foreheads.”
Concerning instant satisfaction in the “here and now”, Yes I do believe in the here-after as long as we are not HERE-AFTER TOO MUCH!
Those who will reject the invitation(s) to the Feast are like uninvited guests. No one will force their arm and drag them to be, as they object, “That’s under the law, inheriting the curse, keeping Jewish Feasts”. Only that we compel them to come to gather in YaHVaH’s appointments for a real convocation.
Let us hope in The Word, not in the controlled news of “doom and gloom”. Why grab your cell phone and “let us see just how hot it will really get”? What is the worst thing that the crystal ball tells us? What does a talk-show host have to do with how we are supposed to view the world? Gas prices, the stock market may or may not get worse. Have things never been this bad before?
John 16:33 “These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me you might have peace. In the world you shall have much tribulation; but be of good cheer. (YaHOSHA Messiah) has overcome the world.”
So radio and Internet friends, a quick check on the dial now: We hear news, static, music, commercials. So, the news is good. Or there may be some real dangers to beware and avoid. Trust not in the legs of man, but in King Messiah Who has conquered sin and death in the grave, for all Eternity.
If we remain true to YaHVaH and His Son, things will get better. Does not Scripture supply enough of history, current events and forth-telling? We just cannot believe it, until we are there in body and spirit in the presence of the King of Kings. Remember Him! Pray and travail for Yisrael. Dream and hope for the Scriptural great Feasts of YaHVaH.
"Let no man judge you in eating or drinking, or in the keeping of a Feastday, Sabbath or New Moon, which ARE a shadow of things to come, but let the body of Messiah judge." Paraphrase of Colossians 2:16
"To profess to believe in YaHVaH (or the PERSON of Messiah) and at the same time to hold a prejudice against YaHVaH's chosen people, the Jews, or against Israel (the rest of us), turns these clear scriptural identifications into meaningless titles, casts doubt upon whether one really knows the true Father YaHVaH." It seems hypocritical to say "I accept the PERSON of Messiah" while rejecting His laws and teachings.

In Today's Assignment, can you imagine which of the Ten Commandments is too difficult to do? "Thou shalt not murder." To some, it may not be possible to ignore a terrible fist-fight. For another, "Thou shalt not steal" may be asking too much, if for example, they were planning a bank heist or robbery. Neither "Keep the Sabbath day pure" is too much to ask. Consider a Church member who attends a synogogue or Church once a week. It would not be any more difficult than driving to a sports event or shopping for food, clothing or housing. The Sabbath is not laborious, but slaughtering of animals for the temporary atonement of sin is a strict taskmaster! This weekly Seventh Day Sabbath is refreshing to the spirit. In this day of rest and community worship we prepare as the Bride prepares for the soon coming Bridgroom.

Romans 8:7 All subject to His Torah.
Evangelist Adrian Rogers stated before the National Religious Broadcasters (of America): "It is better to be divided by truth, than to be united in error.
It is better to speak the truth that hurts, and then heals, than falsehood that comforts and then kills.
Let me tell you, it is not love, and it is not friendship, if we fail to declare the whole counsel of (Yah). It is better to be hated for telling the truth, than to be loved for telling a lie."
Psalm 1:2 "..his delight is in the Torah of YaHVaH, and in His Torah does he meditate night and day."
WHO IS ON YAHVAH'S SIDE?
EXODUS 32; Esp. 32:26
: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 (Moses). (see all of Exodus 32)
Psalm 95:7-8 verse 3 For YaHVaH is a great Elohim/Mighty One/God and a great King above all elohim.
Psa 95:4 In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.
Psa 95:5 The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.
Psa 95:6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before YaHVaH our maker.
Psa 95:7 For he is our Elohim; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,
Psa 95:8 Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
Matthew 6:33 (Messiah said) But seek ye first the kingdom of Elohim, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Mat 6:34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
CHOOSE YE THIS DAY WHOM YOU WILL SERVE!
Follow tradition, or follow YaHVaH in His WORD:
Clean/Unclean: the first sin, eating something, Genesis 2:16. Ber/Gen 7:2, the clean animals were stored on the ark by seven's. It's careless when we teach that all animals, the clean and unclean, went into the ark by two's. Come out of our old traditions into Truth of YaHVaH Word.
Our First Place of Mention about food is found in Gen/Ber 7:2 "Of every clean beast thou shalt take to Thee by sevens...those that are not clean by two, the male and his female."
Psalm 19 - 7 The law of YHVH is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of YHVH is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The statutes of YHVH are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of YHVH is pure (including the 4th Commandment), enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of YHVH is clean, enduring forever: the judgments of YHVH are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is GREAT reward.
12 Who can understand his errors? Cleanse thou me from secret faults.
13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, Oh YaHVaH, my strength, and my redeemer.
53 Horror hath taken hold upon me because of the wicked that forsake thy law.
54 Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.
55 I have remembered thy name, O YaHVaH, in the night, and have kept thy law.
56 This I had, because I kept thy precepts.
KEEPING YAHVAH’S COVENANT
Keeping YaHVaH's Covenant (audio files on our website)
New Covenant Feast
Covenant, Names, Holidays
Covenant & Matthew 5
Romans - John - Covenant
Romans, John, Gal., Eph. Covenant
Once we have YaHVaH’s Name and His Messiah written in our heart, the next priority is know YaHVaH’s covenant. His Torah becomes written in our heart. This is of paramount importance.
Possibly the most effective method is to look in the Concordance. It is like a dictionary, only somewhat better.
We recommend the Hebrew Lexicon on-line or from a bookstore.
We now will look up the word “covenant” and read a few of the passages.
Daniyl 9:4 “And I prayed unto the YaHVaH my Mighty One, and made my confession, and said, O YaHVaH, the great and dreadful Mighty One, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments.”
Deuteronomy 4:13 We are to keep His Feast Days, included in the Judgments and Statutes. Judgments means “privileges”.
Verse 23: Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of YAHVAH your Mighty One, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of anything, which YAHVAH thy Mighty One hath forbidden Thee.
7:9 “The faithful Mighty One (YaHVaH), which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations.” That is just 40,000 years. Why do we resist this commandment?
Luke 1:72 ZachariYah’s prayer “To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his pure covenant.”
Acts 3:25 Kepha said “Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which YaHVaH made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.” We ARE those children.
Romans 11:27 “There shall come out of Tsion the Deliverer, and shall turn away un-YaHVaH-likeness from Jacob: 27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.”
This Messiah YaHOSHA is sent to YOU Yisrael, most of the people groups on this planet. Only He can forgive sin.
Hebrews 8:6 “But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant.” This renewed Covenant is spoken of in verse 10:
“For this is the covenant that I will make with Judah and the House of Israel after those days, saith the YaHVaH; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a Mighty One, and they shall be to me a people”
Hebrews 10:16-29; 13:20
12:24 He is the mediator of the renewed Covenant spoken above. His Spirit will write His Torah in our hearts.
Romans 1:31 “without natural affection, covenant- breakers.”
Ephesians 2:12 “That at that time ye were without YaHOSHA, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without the Mighty One in the world.” Literally you were without Messiah, aliens from the covenants of promise. To complete the logic, now if you have the true Messiah, you are not strangers to the covenants of promise.
What Is a Covenant?
Ask the Pure Spirit to write His Instructions on our hearts in JeremiYah 31:31-36. Read the verses before and after too.
“I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their Father, and they shall be my people.”
Hebrews 10:16. (same as Hebrews 8 and YeremiYah 31)
This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith YHVH, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17 and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. To reiterate:
Once we have YaHVaH’s Name and His Messiah written in our heart, the next priority is know YaHVaH’s covenant. His Torah becomes written in our heart. This is of paramount importance.
"Why was the name of the Messiah changed"?
Someone wanted to disguise the Name. Satan is the cause of hiding and profaning Messiah's Name. Pray we will not be Satan's tool, or be ignorant.
The Hebrew word for Salvation is "Sha" #H3467 YASHA is a root word for the Savior, from IsaiYah 43:10-11, and Salvation for the Savior or Son from Zech. 9:9.
IT'S NOT A QUESTION AS TO HOW ACCURATELY YOU PRONOUNCE EACH SYLLABLE; THE PROBLEM IS THE MISSPELLING; ALSO SOME TOTALLY REBEL AGAINST THE PROPER USE OF HIS NAME.
Publish and proclaim His Name, as he commands, and people will come to recognize whom we're talking of. If "YaHVaH" were used more, his Name would become more identifiable. So, by using a corrupt pagan substitute, they diminish the opportunity of proclaiming the Savior's Name.
Try Psalm 79:6; 83:16; 102:15, 21 "So the heathen shall fear the Name of YaHVaH and all the kings of the earth Thy esteem." and Isaiah 26:13.
Psalm 91:14 "Because He hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him. I will set him on high, because HE HATH KNOWN MY NAME. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him.
"Whosoever shall call on the Name of YaHVaH shall be saved." Acts 4:12; 22:16.
PROOF THAT YAHVAH IS CORRECT, THE "V" NOT THE "W" CAME FIRST:
Here are just two of nearly thirty witnesses. These sources prove V came before W.
You might take many hours looking these up. So, if you're interested, see the referenced pages in a good library. The final proof is in the original documents. Hebrew letters read from right to left. Here are a few excerpts:
1. Hebrew-English, English-Hebrew Dictionary, by A.S. Waldstein, Copy 1967 by P. Shalom Publishers Inc. page "A": Alphabet. "Vau=V"...Notice, NO "W" nor a double V.
2. The Standard Jewish Encyclopedia, the Universal Jewish Ency; Hebrew Study Manual and two dozen more references.
Why hasn’t the Seventh Day Sabbath of Genesis been changed to the first day of the week? There is no prophecy that foretells such a change in the Commandments. The venerable day of the sun is the first of the week. The first day of the week is not YAHVAH’s separated day. Firstfruits/Pentecost is counted FROM the wavesheaf day so it always falls on the second of the week and not on Sunday, the day of the sun.
Wasn’t Messiah YaHOSHA risen from the dead on Aviv 18, the first of the week? No! In any year, remember He died on Aviv 14 and was resurrected on Aviv 17. Reading Matthew 12:38-40, 28:1 and DaniYah 9:27 easily proves this.
Luke 1:33 "..Shall call His Name, (Messiah YaHOSHA) And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever G165; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
Romans 11:26-36 All Yisraeyl shall be saved, there shall come out of Tzion The Deliverer, and shall turn-away 'unYahVah-likeness' from Yacov: For this is My Covenant unto THEM, when I shall take away their sins. 36:For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be esteem for ever.G165 -
Romans 6:1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue to violate Torah (IN SIN) so that Yahuweh’s (YaHVaH's) favor (grace) may abound? 6:2 Of course not! How shall we who died to Torah- violation (or sin) live any longer in it?
6:3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were immersed in the water (Baptism) into the Messiah Yeshua were immersed in the water into His death? 6:4 Therefore, we were buried with Him through immersion into death, so that even as YaHVaH's Anointed was raised from the dead by the power and majesty of the Father, even so we should also walk in newness of life. 6:5 For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be united together in the likeness of His resurrection, 6:6 knowing this, that our old nature (man) was crucified with Him, so that our sin driven bodies might be made powerless, and that we should no longer be slaves to that sin nature. 6:7 For he who has died [to the sin nature] is made righteous [and no longer violates Torah]. (Clarification is In brackets.)
Hebrews 4:7-11 “There REMAINS a keeping of the Seventh Day Sabbath.
Matthew 5:17 Messiah did not come to destroy the Law but to fulfil it (Magnify it? Or do away with it?)
Genesis 2:1-4 YaH set-apart and blessed the Seventh day Sabbath, but never another day of the week: NOT SUNDAY!
TIME TO OBEY (Some corrections of Unlawful Teachings)
The Scriptures define "Discernment" in Malachi 3:18
Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth YaHVaH and him that serveth him not.
Lev 20:26 (KJV) And ye shall be qodesh/holy/separate unto me: for I YaHVaH am separate, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine. "I have separated you from the peoples to be Mine" (Source: HalleluYah Scriptures)
The purpose of the Torah is being saved unto good works (Eph. 2:10), to convince us of sin and our need to repent; Torah is the Standard which is the way unto life (Psalm 1). The Torah is a blessing, and to all who keep His Word with a pure heart.
Word Study of HATE From KJV
Which hate crimes are men guilty of?
Lev_19:17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.
IS IT PERMISSIBLE TO CRITICIZE A RELIGIOUS TEACHER (End times, blood moons, solar eclipse)? Or can we rebuke, exhort their teachings if needed. Do not spread gossip about the teacher. We can discuss and analyze the teaching/doctrine. Discernment ministries: Hopefully they more likely will warn about a bonafide issue.
