2. Why is the
statement being made?
It is informing
reader that if Yeshua/Jesus delays his return, then all flesh will be killed,
there would be some kind of negative outcome for the elect.

of his will plans to kill all flesh.
Also, if all

resurrection (Revelation 2:26). The 2nd resurrection
is not until just before the New Earth (Revelation

possibility that all flesh would be killed by destroying the earth

Why does this

Studying The Word Of God
- MOST IMPORTANT:
No matter how
hard a verse or subject is to understand, even when it may be
unsettling to you as some verses in the Old Testament have been known
to be, always, give God the benefit of the doubt –
always! Give it time, make sure you understand the context,
ask God for guidance, but know that it is true and righteous.
- It is also
important to understand that no bible translation is perfect (see point
below). I have found errors in KJV, BUT it also, in my
opinion, does the best job conveying the vast majority of God's message
in "proper" context. However, if you find that you are having
trouble with a passage, it could very well be that the translation you
are reading is in error. Discovering this is not usually easy
for everyone, but nevertheless, if something seems unsettling to you,
this could be the reason why. Do not however, "only" just
read a more contemporary version (i.e., the Message or NIV), without
first looking at the original language (Hebrew or Greek).
After you have seen the original language (using tools below), compare
to see which translation does the best job (try BibleGateway's -- Add
Parallel tool). You will find this approach can reconcile
many issues with passages that seem contradictory or out of context.
- Use the old KJV
and even better, start to learn some Hebrew and Greek. Think
about purchasing a Strong’s Concordance, and if possible an
Interlinear Bible (Hebrew and Greek/Hebrew). Satan will
continue to change the bibles beyond recognition. See websites http://www.e-sword.net/ OR http://www.blueletterbible.org/
for advanced translation tools.
- Consider at a
minimum taking a class in learning the Hebrew alphabet and numbers
associated with each letter. There is wisdom
in the Hebrew letters and numbers.
Important: Know the difference between final form letters and the
“different” numerical values associated with
them. See Revelation 13:18.
- Once you have
become efficient with the tool, consider laying on your bed and
pondering upon verses or subjects, and see what happens. One
of your goals should be to learn how to meditate on the word like David
- Psalm 4:4 Stand
in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be
- Read bible
notes and cross references (however, never allow someone to discern for
listening to the KJV on audio while relaxing. You will be
surprised what you hear even if you are not paying close
attention. It can also give your eyes a break. Try
using the free Apps, Youversion.com or Biblegateway.com for your smart
phone or on your computer.
- Learn prophecy
and know the definition of a saint. Rev. 12:17/19:10 and
12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war
with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of
God, and have the testimony of Yeshua/Jesus Messiah.
19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See
thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have
the testimony of Yeshua/Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of
Yeshua/Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep
the commandments of God, and the faith of Yeshua/Jesus.
- Learn how to
read Paul’s writings (his writings agree with James and John,
and the others as well). Some find his words confusing, and
consequently, misinterpret them…
- 2 Peter 3:16 As
also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which
are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned
and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their
- Remember, there
can be duality in prophecy where the same symbol can mean more than one
thing. For example, in the books of Daniel and Revelation, a
beast can mean a king and a kingdom.
- Know that
God’s law cannot save you (only Yeshua/Jesus can), but it can help
you to learn more about his ways and how he thinks (i.e., Psalms
- Take at least one
day off each week to study the word of God. I pray that you will
also be compelled to keep the 7th day Sabbath (Hebrews 4:9) to help you with
- Romans 14:5-6

alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he
that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it (last
part of verse was taken out of the NIV). He that eateth,
eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not,
to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.
- Always remember
that the god of this world is Satan. Do not place your faith
in the world’s standards or ways. (See John
12:31, John 14:30, John 16:11, 2 Corinthians 4:4, and Revelation 13).
reviewing the 613 Mitzvot (Google it, if this word is new to
you). Make sure you read the actual bible verses being cited
and do not rely on the various websites’ summaries of each
verse because many are not correct.
Yeshua/Jesus had to keep all the mitzvot that applied to him, in order to be
our sinless and spotless savior. He also was pure in mind
which requires even greater perfection. Since he cared enough
for us to keep them, why not consider learning what they are?
Many Disciples don’t know them.
- Again, the law
does NOT save, but it informs and guides… Also,
since sin is the transgression of the law, it does not hurt to read
- 1 John 3:4
Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the
transgression of the law.
- Listen to other
learned speakers from various denominations. Try to focus on
those that believe in keeping the commandments of God, and who
understand and spend a lot of time in Old and New Testament
prophecy. No matter how good a speaker or pastor is at
explaining or interpreting, always confirm their words –
Always! Everyone makes mistakes.
- Acts 17:11 These were more
noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with
all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those
things were so.

Did you know
that even though verses in the bible
(especially Old Testament) say that evil comes from God, there are
missing each time? Like in the first part of the Book of Job, God does
impart "evil" (I do not mean judgment, but evil) on humanity
"directly"... See the verses below and understand that when you see
other parts of the bible that talk about evil coming from God, this type of transaction
below is always taking place...

Have you ever had unleavened
bread (First Eaten Each Year At Passover Feast)?
not, you should try it... It is the same bread (without yeast or
leaven) that Yeshua/Jesus ate with the disciples at the last supper or
Passover. This bread is called the "bread of affliction" probably
because of its cracker-like consistency and rigidness. Yeshua/Jesus said that
bread was symbolic of his body. Most also know that the body of Messiah
is also symbolic of the church. The bread without leaven is also
symbolic of a body without SIN. Although Disciples still sin at times,
they are made sinless through Messiah. However, their walk towards
Messiah should be symbolic as taking leaven out of bread, and ultimately
being like an angel that ONLY cares about what God wants (Joshua 5:14).
symbolism and experience may help you to see what is expected of
Disciples as we walk towards a sin free life. Which by the way, you
cannot have sin IF there is no law (1Jn_3:4).
reality is that saints in Messiah are NOT under the law, but they are
under grace (or the blood of the lamb of God). Grace IS under the law.
It is good to also note that a saint is defined as follows-- One that
keeps the commandments of "God", and has the faith in the word of Yeshua/Jesus
and believes in the testimony of Yeshua/Jesus' prophecy (Revelation
12:17,14:12, and 19:11).
You stay covered by the
blood by being a saint as defined above. If you leave the covering of
the blood by causing grace to abound (Rom_6:1-2) and choose the wide
way instead of the narrow gate (door). You will experience death. The
Israelites only placed the blood of the lamb on the door posts (Exo
12:7). This is
symbolic of a saints' parameters... You have to stay covered by Grace
so that the angel of death or so that the consequences of breaking the law can Passover you...
thing is that the concept of marriage in
the bible is much bigger than the world's interpretation. Maybe some
miss the mark on this topic at times... Our mother the Church

Human marriage is a microcosm of a much bigger story and vantage point. We have the
opportunity to learn about it

The original design of the husband and wife relationship had
mutually dependent relationship. God did not believe man should be
alone, as a
matter of fact he said everything in creation up to the point of

God intended for man and woman to work together to achieve a
purpose or vision.
God gave man the vision and gave the woman the job to support (or help)
accomplish this purpose. Men and women were designed to compliment one
and the relationship was supposed to be one of a perpetual cycle of

only makes a difference based on behavior.
You should too
be careful of "well-meaning" counselors that try to teach you to be
idolaters. You may be asking, what does idolatry have to do
with racism? Racism is really a form of idolatry where one
group of people set a man made standard of beauty, intelligence, work
ethic, leadership, etc. When in reality, the only idol or
source that a Disciple should have for defining these attributes or
qualities (and similar ones) is the word of God. No other man
or group of people should be put in the place of Yeshua/Jesus and his truth.
is where one group of people establish themselves as a human standard
where other races should strive to attain, and they actively try to
influence the world with this belief. This is also blasphemous because
only Yeshua/Jesus is our standard! Yeshua/Jesus always has been and always
will be the focus of a Disciple's growth and maturity in all relevant
idolatry is set aside as a very grave sin. It
is harmful enough that if it persists without repentance, it can cause
a person to be excluded from the Lamb's book of
22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they
right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the
city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and
whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and
maketh a lie.
dad saying that if people try to make you feel good about your race or
your heritage that they are bad? No, not necessarily...
What I am saying is that if they try to present a viewpoint
that your race or any other race should somehow be set apart from all
other races as being superior or that a race or group of races should
be some form of human standard then that individual or group of people
are teaching idolatry and humanism.
Their views actually
threaten your salvation and all those they teach it to. They
are interested in division based on sight not on content.
Even if they present data that suggests that they have done
research and studies to support their position. Know that all
people are the same "In Messiah".

nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in

studies are irrelevant, and I should note are usually full of
fallacies. Remember dad is a Black Belt in 6-Sigma (Google
it), so I know my way around statistics, and how they can be
statistics because people tend to use statistics to prove erroneous
points (ie., the Bell Curve Theory), but if you have good
knowledge of the subject, you will easily see through the flaws.
Some black people may come to you and say look at the state
of the world, who do you think caused these problems? They
may try to blame white people, and group them as all being devils or
maybe even try to suggest that this is their nature. Let me
simply state that there are only 2 races of people that Yeshua/Jesus cares
about -- those that are Godly and those that are ungodly.
Both races or groups are made up of the same variety of
races. The only thing distinguishing the 2 groups is their
be careful with how Satan works. He is very tricky.
It may not be
just black people that try to change your feelings on race.
If you are
really a danger or very strong in Messiah, he will also send
people or other races to try and make you harbor feelings of
towards those groups based on the efforts of a few. This can
effective, and all Disciples no matter their race need to be aware of
this very effective tactic! It is in fact on purpose.
only goal is to get you to hate their represented race. Don't
fool you, but if it appears overwhelming at times, please ask God for
help, and I promise, he will.
2 says that the people of the world imagine vain things, and the rulers
and kings plot against God and Yeshua/Jesus. These same rulers are
in every country of the world, and they prefer to listen to the voice
Satan (the god of this world 2 Corinthians 4:4) instead of the creator
of the universe.
Satan wants to get things accomplished in the world, he uses people.
If Satan wants to deceive or oppress people in an African
country, he uses the leaders of that country. He does not
care about their race, he only wants to accomplish his goal.
This is how he works all throughout the world.
Whoever is in leadership position or in a position to take a
needed action (even a cashier or doorman), they are potential
candidates that Satan will try to use. They do not have to
accept his suggestions, but many do and will.
world governments that have the greatest power are either controlled by
Caucasians or Asians. As prophecy unfolds, Satan will use
some of these governments (Revelation 17:12 and Daniel 2:41-43) to
consolidate the world's military, economy, and social structure.
Some will try to convince you that racism is the primary
driver behind these changes. They will try to get you to have
hate in your heart for Caucasians and Asians. They only want you to
feel this way so you will be a weaker instrument for God or unusable
altogether. If you accept these teachings then God will not
be able to use you to reach his people.
racism will still exist, it will be more of a tool used by the leaders
to keep the people in a confused and divided state. Those
that have the testimony of Yeshua/Jesus (the spirit of prophecy -- Revelation
19:10) will not be fooled and will see it for what it really is...

"There is no such thing as the "Black Church"!
Or any other church classified by race... These are man-made concepts

Disciples of ALL races will stand before the
of the ways evil can be defined...
Satan looks at little kids with flies all over their faces in
underprivileged country; he actually sees that as opportunity to
masses. How did he come to this conclusion?
Unlike most people who feel sad when they see this type of
image, he decided to
study the modification in behavior that resulted in
the lack of will to take any further action against the flies...
result of his
observations and study, he found
great potential in being able to modify human behavior so people will
relinquish their will to fight or resist HIS will...
to God. Resist the
devil, and he will flee from you.
others like him, hate this verse.
Consequently, they are looking for ways to keep you from resisting...
ask, what kind of mind thinks this way?
this mind -- god of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4 & Revelation
you be one of them!
Here is an example of the fly
tactic at work...
will have noticed that all of a sudden gay marriage has become very
ubiquitous topic in all forms of media. It is hard to find a
place where same sex marriage or the LGBT issue is not being discussed
these days and being normalized... For example, the
workplace, places of worship, schools, government, sports, foreign
is again applying the fly tactic to numb the public especially
Disciples on this issue. Eventually, just like the little children
that he so enjoyed to study, many people will stop resisting the change
and it will be commonplace. Watch for different variations of
this tactic as he completes his push to implement the anti-Messiah
system where sin is no longer sin. If sin is no longer sin,
there is or never was a need for Yeshua/Jesus. This is the
doctrine at its core -- eventually through various tactics including
this one, Satan wants to cause people to disregard Yeshua/Jesus as their
you say, Satan is a myth. I believe in Yeshua/Jesus (John 3:16), but
It is unfortunate that some people
that say they believe in Yeshua/Jesus also laugh or baulk at the reality of
Satan. How can you say you believe in Yeshua/Jesus, but not believe in his
very words and accounts of his personal experiences with Satan?
Below are 3 examples of Yeshua/Jesus' "personal" accounts regarding
Luk 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning
fall from heaven.
Luk 22:31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold,
Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and
when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.
Mat 4:3 And when the
tempter came to him, he
said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made
bread. 4 But he answered and said, It is written,
Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth
out of the mouth of God. 5 Then the devil taketh him up into
the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the
temple, 6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of
God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels
charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up,
lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a
stone. 7 Yeshua/Jesus said unto him, It is written again,
Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 8 Again, the
devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him
all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of
them; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I
give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then
saith Yeshua/Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou
shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou
serve. 11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold,
angels came and ministered unto him.
people can make you feel uncomfortable about Satan being real as the
god of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4), that is not the only thing about
the word of God that they will cause you to cast away or have an
uncomfortable feeling about...
or Cold – Luke
you know whether God wants you to be hot or
cold? What does Yeshua/Jesus mean by the verses below?
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will
out of my mouth.
because iniquity shall
abound, the love of many
shall wax cold.
this... In the days ahead, true
believers will not be accepted by Messiah if they are lukewarm, BUT what
hot or cold?
the verses above suggest that
God only wants those that have an intense "hot" desire to be with
him. He asks us to love him with all of our heart, soul, and might
lukewarm believers after being
spued out of his mouth will eventually turn from lukewarm to cold. That
implication seen in Matthew 24:12 because we cannot make it without the
secret treasure you will learn from
the scriptures... God's plan is so complete that "many" that are
lukewarm will be forced to become hot, not directly by God but by the
brought forth by Satan and his children...
look at the
support Disciples are giving
today to what they believe is a Disciple's right to express God's
precursor to events that will be much
more pivotal in determining the fate of millions if not billions of
supporting Chick Fil-A for the vast
majority of Disciples will not bring forth any type of retaliation or
consequences as Yeshua/Jesus prophesied for those that love him. It is still a
indication of conscience.
however, be times that taking a
stand for God/Yeshua/Jesus will come with grave consequences. In these times,
those HOT for the Lord will be saved. Remember Lot's
God Want Us To
Hate Our Family?
Yeshua/Jesus really want us to HATE our family
and our own life?
Luke 14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father,
and mother, and
wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life
cannot be my disciple.
The simple answer is NO. There are too many biblical
references that would
suggest the opposite.
comes to choosing between the
former and following the word of God (which Yeshua/Jesus is...), you are
choose Yeshua/Jesus over all other things, including your life (see the trials
book of Daniel -- fire execution and lion's den). Both are examples of
God over your own life.
in the Book
of Revelation (Revelation 13)
where God warns followers not to take the mark of the beast which if
could mean execution under the world's laws at the time. Follower's of
would gladly give up their life than to be eternally separated from God
in terms of
choosing Yeshua/Jesus over family...
Consider the following...
the book of
Luke (Chapter 17:32), Yeshua/Jesus said --
"REMEMBER LOT's WIFE"!! To fully understand the purpose of this
request, you would need to know that when Lot's wife looked back to the
she "lost life", and was turned to salt because of her attachment
(which was more than likely to her other daughters and son-in-laws that
was joking and
stayed behind). Her
attachment to the world and her family who chose to love the world and
follow God's commandment was strong enough to cause her to hesitate,
and be killed.
Yeshua/Jesus, this just won't do. Especially,
in the latter days (Matthew 24)... So in fact, the scriptures prove
such an instance, you would be better served to HATE family members or
close relations who oppose God's way than to love them because that
"could" cost you all that matters most -- your soul!
may not know that Yeshua/Jesus himself
provided definitions of what determines who his mother, sister, and
he answered and said unto him
that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?
stretched forth his hand toward his
disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
shall do the will of my Father
which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
members and friends meet the
definition in verse 50, then you will never have to worry about Luke
14.:26 as it relates to them.
So spread the word of God (starting at home), and save souls...
Wide Are Your Door
wide are your door posts?
God says that the blood of the lamb is to be placed over the
door and on its
sides so that he will cover you (Exodus 12:23)...
Is salvation a collective thing or is it individual? How many
people can fit
through the door that is described in Exodus 12:23?
safety has limits, it has
tolerances... How do you know if you are within Yeshua/Jesus' tolerance level
his blood is covering you?
God's tolerance level will not
find life - Exodus 12:23.
tolerance level do not have to
be perfect as long as they choose to stay covered. God's grace covers
while within the parameters of "his" limits.
"Because strait is the gate, and
narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find
it." Matthew 7:14
limits? You know them by
understanding his definition of what a saint is because saints are the
of God's grace.
is how the
book of Revelation defines a saint:
And the dragon was wroth with the
woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep
commandments of God, and have the testimony of Yeshua/Jesus Messiah.
Here is the patience of the
saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith
here is how
the testimony of Yeshua/Jesus is defined
for Rev 12:17 above...
And I fell at his feet to worship
him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant,
thy brethren that have the testimony of Yeshua/Jesus: worship God: for the
of Yeshua/Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
a saint is also the definition of
saint is someone
that keeps the commandments of
God, and the faith and testimony of Yeshua/Jesus.
testimony of Yeshua/Jesus? "...the
testimony of Yeshua/Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."
commandments of God?
Love the Lord thy God
with all your heart, soul,
neighbor as yourself.
1st one is
related to the 1st 5 commandments,
and the last 1 is related to the last 5 of the 10 commandments.
how do you stay
covered by the blood of Yeshua/Jesus
under the narrow door and stay within the tolerance of God?
commandments of God (because they are
Have faith in
Yeshua/Jesus the forgiver of sins (because
no one comes to the Father but through the Son)
testimony of Yeshua/Jesus (because studying
and knowing prophecy in the correct context will cause the believer to
their thoughts and behaviors to be well suited for the times ahead)
adultery and same-sex relations...
The marrying of the flesh of an unmarried man and an
unmarried woman is fornication.
If they are both married to other parties then it is adultery.

married to a 3rd party, then the
unmarried party is committing adultery and the married party is
specifically states that men that commit
same-sex relations are committing
an abomination. List of other abominable sexual sins
(including adultery), can be found in Leviticus 18.
Torah does not
specifically outlaw women that commit
same-sex relations probably because women cannot marry
the bodies, however the Torah does outlaw bestiality for both men and
women (Lev 18:23). Paul could be alluding to woman on woman sex in
Romans 1:26, but it is not specifically mentioned as he does in Romans
1:27 for men.
Romans 1:26 is more than likely only
a reference to bestiality and incest to stay consistent with the Torah
(Mat 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one
jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law (Torah),
till all be fulfilled.).
Note: Although the word abomination can be
found in the New Testament (especially in the Book of Revelation - Rev
is NEVER defined in the New Testament. You can only find the
definition of abominations or abominable acts in the Old Testament.

IT is what Paul said it was A messenger from Satan. However, to

Yeshua/Jesus allow it?
answer is in
the first part of the
verse..."And lest I should be exalted above measure through the
of the revelations"...
is the key to
understanding the nature of
Paul's problem. It was actually a messenger of Satan that was given a
authority over Paul's flesh (which is already weak). This "messenger"
was used to keep Paul from getting raised higher than God/Yeshua/Jesus wanted
be raised... Remember the level of zeal Paul had as he persecuted
Yeshua/Jesus knew he would have this same level of zeal for him, but you have

question (that all Disciples should

What about people who never got a chance to know about Yeshua/Jesus, do they
"automatically" perish -- John 3:16? In short -- NO!

Point: Don't let people convince you that ALL
people that are judged during the 2nd resurrection will be ungodly or
the "wicked". This is just not true.
Many people judged during that time
will have lived during Yeshua/Jesus' 1,000 year reign with his saints, and
those naysayers would basically be saying that NOBODY that lived and
died during Yeshua/Jesus' reign was worth saving. What a negative
testimony about Yeshua/Jesus' rule!
about when you 1st met your spouse... Or
maybe the person you are in a relationship with now... How many
you ask of this person? How many long hours did you spend looking into
eyes trying to find out everything about them?
Now think about the great commandment Yeshua/Jesus gave us...
Matthew 22:37 Yeshua/Jesus said
unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with
soul, and with all thy mind.

was actually talking to someone about this very topic not to long
ago... Oftentimes, individuals that espouse a humanistic view
about the access to spiritual power like to disparage Disciples by
saying they are looking for God externally... Many will say "God is
within you", you don't need to look outside... And what they say is
correct, God is in us...
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which
is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and
in your spirit, which are God's.
they miss the fact that the spirit inside of us is still God's... It is
"his" spirit, and even though there are ways to access the power of the
spirit without invoking the name of Yeshua/Jesus (i.e., Pharaoh's magicians,
prophets of Baal, etc.), the owner expressly commands that we do NOT
use these methods... Especially considering the fact, that oftentimes,
access to this unsanctioned power, must be gained by using the help of
fallen spirits... This type of access has been labeled
as abomination... The definition of abominations can only be
in the Old Testament, and using the spirit in these ways is in
states that there are different levels of sin (John 19:11), and there
is no question that abominable sins are the worst... Yes, using the
power of the spirit can be used to bring forth amazing works, but if
your maker has not endorsed its use, then you are on the wrong side of
judgment and choice...
is nothing wrong with learning about God's spirit within as long as you
do it God's way. In finding out about God through "his" word and his
"holy" spirit, you will learn more about who you are and your purpose
and the plan he has for all his repentant children that choose
world's teaching on how to know self/God is not the way God teaches us
to know him... See Psalms 119 (i.e., Psalm 119:100 and Psalm 119:93)...
David says by studying God's word with the help of God's holy spirit,
he has learned how God quickens souls and he knows more than those in
antiquity... The people that lived in the days of Noah (like many
today), had a high-level of knowledge, but they used it in opposition
to their creator. They thought ungodly thoughts all the time (as in
today) -- Psalms 2:1-3, and they chose to use God's power for purposes
he did not intend for his children to use it for...
you will find is that the secular world's perspective on learning about
self and acquiring powers of the spirit are different than the biblical
view -- the former does NOT need Yeshua/Jesus, while the latter does. Always
test the spirits (1 John 4:1-3 -- key word Messiah/"THE" Messiah) and be
sure they are communicating the same Gospel that Yeshua/Jesus spoke (i.e.,
kingdom of God and Yeshua/Jesus' death for our "sins" unto everlasting life
for those who truly believe)... God knows that without his guidance,
man will use his power improperly that is why Adam was cast out of the
garden... If we cannot be patient to learn and acquire God's knowledge
and power by his means, then he deems us unworthy to live forever...
Yeshua/Jesus said we will be as holy angels of God (Joshua 5:13-15)... This
means that God's holy angels are only obedient to his way... God
expects the same from his saints. If we love him, we will keep his
commandments (John 14:15)...
secular world's (i.e., new age, secret societies, etc.) use of God's
power is analogous to that of Satan's. They use it how they see fit,
and do as they will... This is a recipe for disaster, and those who
follow this path are destined to be detached from the source of all
power forever... God has an incredible future for his saints. No mind
has ever conceived what he has in store for us, but it is only promised
to those who are patient enough to follow his way...
last point about David's passion... Please don't let anyone tell you
that since Yeshua/Jesus died we do not have to see things David's way because
we are not under the law. This part is true, we are NOT under the law.
We are under grace if we are in Yeshua/Jesus. BUT grace IS under the law.
Do not think about David's passion for
God's commandments, precepts, and statutes as a way to achieve
salvation (it is not). David (the prophet) knew even before Yeshua/Jesus' time
that he needs God's mercy (Psalms 119:41) in spite of his zealousness
for his way. Again, David's passion was centered around his love of God
and the knowledge and power that can be found in his word NOT
salvation. Salvation can only be found in Yeshua/Jesus (John 14:6).
that after over 3 years of learning directly from God/Yeshua/Jesus, Yeshua/Jesus
called the disciples his friends. He said they knew what he knew...
They were ready to receive the power of the spirit because God knew
they would be responsible with it... They still had to wait until after
his ascension, but they were ready because they did it his way!
1. The Law is established by God/Yeshua/Jesus -- John 1:3
2. Sin is the Transgression of the Law -- 1 John 3:4

Our Society Hurts
People Born NOT Attracted to the Opposite Sex?
God love everyone? In short, YES!
Now the 1st question... Yeshua/Jesus defines a man not attracted to
the opposite sex or
not meant to marry as a Eunuch -- Matthew 19:12
Mat 19:11 But he said to them, "Not everyone can receive this saying, but only those to whom it is given.
Mat 19:12 For there are eunuchs who have been so from birth, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Let the one who is able to receive this receive it."
born as eunuchs, and unfortunately
our society only has 3 real options for them -- stay in the closet as gay, lesbian or transexual,
go into the
LGBT community, and/or now same-sex marriage. However, none of those
acceptable to God or beneficial for the person...
the inherent brotherly or sisterly
love that a eunuch is born with that is designed to
enhance their ability to minister/serve God and only offers a fleshly
for their feelings... Paul says that we must live after the spirit and
flesh to please God. (Romans 8:4-14)
our society and
leaders were more grounded in
Messiah they would already have an established infrastructure for these
individuals in the body of Messiah just like Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach,
Abednego instead of the options founded in the flesh.
the Bible Addresses
People NOT Being Attracted to the Opposite Sex...
Yeshua/Jesus said some people were not meant to marry or in other words have sexual relations (kind of like Catholic priests). He even said that some were even BORN that way. These people are called eunuchs NOT GAY or LESBIAN -- Matthew 19:10-12. They are supposed to be serving God like Daniel the prophet did. But society tells them that their brotherly or sisterly love is really a perversity. And instead of being used to serve God, they pervert the feelings and express it in the form of gay sex. Gay sex is a choice, being born a eunuch is NOT...
You will see that God knows the end from the beginning... Isaiah 46:10 -- The reality is being gay is a man made lifestyle.
only our leaders had the mind of Messiah, they
would define the issue better...
and Men of God take note...
1. Sin is the transgression of the law -- 1 John 3:4
2. The law was established in Old Testament 613 Mitzvah
Yeshua/Jesus did not come to
destroy the law -- Matthew
5:18, but he SAVES us from the impact of the law -- John 3:16
The Book of Revelation
says no one that
practices abomination will be in the book of life -- Revelation 21:27
The only place abominations are defined are in the Old Testament)
The law of God says same
sex intercourse for men
is an abomination -- Leviticus 20:13
Paul in Romans mentions
that certain sexual relations are unnatural (Romans 1:24-28)
Mishael, and Azariah were all
"Eunuchs" from their youth and served the lord their entire lives
Yeshua/Jesus defines a Eunuch as
a man that will not
marry - Matthew 19:12
Some Eunuchs are born
that way, some are
changed, and some choose that way - Matthew 19:12
The ones that are born
Eunuchs are not attracted
to the opposite sex
Paul says that we must
live after the spirit and
not the flesh to please God.
Paul also says that the
law can be fulfilled in
those that walk after the spirit, and not the flesh Romans 8:4

child or young adult that appears to
have been born NOT attracted to the opposite sex, then it is quite

to Adam when he said ... in the day that you eat of the Tree of
Good and Evil, you shall die...? They say Adam did not die in that day

Well GOD, did not lie... Nobody since Adam has lived longer
than a day from

you know that if you don't have a job that will
cause the below to happen then you need to exercise or go to a gym?
Genesis 3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread,
till thou return
unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and
dust shalt thou return."
Exo 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Exo 20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
Exo 20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: 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:
Exo 20:11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
I love the Lord's Sabbath. It has personal meaning for me in many ways. The most important one is how keeping it has brought me closer to know him. I cannot express how grateful I am to have been compelled by the Lord to keep his 7th day sabbath. He works in mysterious ways at times, but this was by far the most important change in my entire life.
I am so pleased with this commandment that I have a little bonus poem. I hope you enjoy.
I can't resist the urge to desist... 6 days of work, and 1 day of rest... Ahh, a day without stress or cares... a day to remember the creator of heaven and earth... a day to reflect on the simplicity of creation... no matter your nation, the Lord's day is a dedication to man... understand? it is a good habit to remember the Lord on "his" Sabbath...
The sabbath day was made for man because in God's wisdom he knew we would need a set a part day for his set apart people. It is an opportunity to spend much needed time with him, rest our bodies and minds, and it is a form of escape from the hustle and bustle of the world.
You would be amazed with what God can do with you in just 52 days out of the year. Obviously, you can be with him anytime, but there is nothing like a standing appointment.
Eze_20:12 Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them.
Did you know that the word sanctify means to be set apart or be made holy?
Did you also know that by keeping the 7th day Sabbath, it is a sign to God that you can take one day out of the week to remove (or set yourself apart) from the economic system of the world?
This will be a requirement for some disciples in the era of the beast system. Anyone who receives the mark of the beast to "buy and sell" will not be a part of the kingdom of God (Revelation 13). It really is not a hardship, but a relief.
Keeping the 7th day sabbath is also a sign to him that you want his 1,000 years of rest that will occur during the 1,000 years reign (also called Yomim HaMashiach -- the days of the Messiah) which is also the 7th day of the human experience after Adam's fall.
The 7th day will also be the Lord's 3rd day for the 2nd coming. And we know what happens on the 3rd day - Resurrection!
How can we say these things about the days and years? Read this verse from Peter.
2Pe 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
Do you remember that one of the fruits of the spirit is peace?
Well read these next verses, and you be the judge if the 7th Day sabbath has spirit and life.
They shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks; nation will not lift sword against nation and they will no longer study warfare. (Isaiah 2:4)
The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. The infant will play near the hole of the cobra, and the young child put his hand into the viper's nest. They will neither harm nor destroy on my entire holy mountain, for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. (Isaiah 11:6-9)

Sunday, I was talking to the boys about how God always gives
“beneficial advice” to his children. We
about some of the guidance he gave on clean animals and unclean
animals, and various other commandments that to some appear to be
After our talk, I thought about the verses below. I know that
does not give arbitrary guidance. Consequently, I decided to
together a little experiment to see if we could perhaps
“see” some sort of benefit in the guidance below in
growth of 2 pepper plants. Important: I did not
the outcome would be NOR did I know “exactly” why
was better poured out as water than eaten. So I told myself
even if there was no measurable difference between the 2 plants, I
still would believe that God’s guidance was beneficial.
Now the verses:
Deu 12:24 Thou shalt not eat it; thou shalt pour it upon the earth as
Deu 12:25 Thou shalt not eat it; that it may go well with thee, and
with thy children after thee, when thou shalt do that which is right in
the sight of the LORD.
I bought the plants both about the same size, and the next Sunday when
I had the boys I told them about the idea, and they thought it would be
fun. The plants were cayenne pepper plants that had a
period of 70 days (or 10 weeks). The boys chronicled the
experiment on video, and here is what we did next...
For the next 2 weeks, we gave both plants water, BUT one of the plants
we gave either turkey or chicken (hormone free) blood. After
TWO WEEKS the plant that we gave the blood to started to bare
fruit! It was noticeably larger than the other plant too.
The boys and I were ecstatic! To make a longer story shorter,
over the next 2-3 weeks, the plant that we gave the blood to continued
to grow and bare healthy fruit some of which we were able to even share
with grandma! The other plant appeared to still be following
maturity period that was included in the directions, and not only did
it not bare any fruit, but it was much smaller than the blood enriched
Being satisfied that our little experiment was a success, and that we
proved GOD was indeed not arbitrary, after about 4 weeks, we decided to
give the smaller plant blood too. In about 1 week, it too
to bare fruit and grow. Remember, these plants were not
to reach maturity for 10 weeks!
I know that people have a problem with old covenant guidance, but the
reality is that without the old there could be no new. Also,
tend to miss the fact that the law is still firmly in place (Mat 5:18)
whether they believe they are under grace or not – GRACE IS
What I also learned is that God has foresight that we at times do not
have. The 2nd verse above talks about how keeping this
commandment will go well with the parents and their children.
What did God mean by this?
Specifically as it relates to the increased fertility of the ground, I
believe God meant that if you follow my guidance, it will not only
benefit you today, but also it will help to establish an inheritance
for your children, and since the children of Israel were farmers, I
know that he meant harvest yield and land quality. This by
way was also the way Israel gave God tithes via the Levites.
Isn’t that just like the Father?
We not only proved that there is life in the blood, BUT also in
You Ever Had Unleavened Bread? If not, you should try it...
the same bread (without yeast or leaven) that Yeshua/Jesus ate with the
disciples at the last supper. This bread is called the "bread of
affliction" probably because of its cracker-like consistency and
rigidness. Yeshua/Jesus said that bread was symbolic of his body. Most also
know that the body of Messiah is also symbolic of the church. The bread
without leaven is also symbolic of a body without SIN. Although
Disciples still sin at times, they are made sinless through Messiah.
However, their walk towards Messiah should be symbolic as taking leaven
out of bread, and ultimately being like an angel that ONLY cares about
what God wants (Joshua 5:14).
The symbolism and experience may help you to see what is expected of
Disciples as we walk towards a sin free life. Which by the way, you
cannot have sin IF there is no law (1Jn_3:4).
The reality is that saints in Messiah are NOT under the law, but they
are under grace (or the blood of the Lamb of God). Grace IS under the
law. It is good to also note that a saint is defined as
One that keeps the commandments of "God", and has the faith in the word
of Yeshua/Jesus and believes in the testimony of Yeshua/Jesus' prophecy (Revelation
12:17,14:12, and 19:11).
You stay covered by the blood by being a saint as defined
If you leave the covering of the blood by causing grace to abound
(Rom_6:1-2) and choose the wide way instead of the narrow gate (door).
You will experience death. The Israelites only placed the blood of the
lamb on the door posts. This is symbolic of saints' parameters... You
have to stay covered by Grace so that the angel of death or the "whole"
law can pass over you...
