Count it All Joy and Persevere until You Overcome


bible-hebrewsThere again, scripture says “Count it all joy” when you fall into divers [various] trials because there is ‘Proving of your belief” working in you to generate perseverance.
Every where people profess the name of Jesus. There is nothing new about that, because history proclaims that the Hebrews throughout the centuries have been beaten into submission concerning Christianity, especially in slavery where their owners used the bible to dole out lashes if someone disobeyed them. It is the case, that the name has stuck both spiritually and mentally through the ages.

If this is the case, then it would behoove us to see that the ‘proving’ these verses speak of is not Jesus, Christianity or anything else but True belief of the Most High. In essence, those who believed in Yahuah first, and those who are called back to His name.

The proving of your belief then brings about trials of various types. In other words, one should ask how can one be saved from something where everyone is saved? Hence, if Christianity says all are saved, then this is contrary to what the scriptures proposes, that is, someone needs saving and it is in a name unknown to us today. Why? Several reasons present themselves, (a) We forgot, (b) someone intentionally left it out, and (c) the name was changed. We can now began to see that trials might come for choosing to believe other than we were taught spiritually and mentally.

For example, through belief, that is heart and mind acceptance of evidence presented does not necessarily mean actions in behavior present themselves all at once, however, there has been confession of belief other than what we have been taught.

“But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” – that is, the word of belief which we are proclaiming: that if you confess with your mouth the Master יהושע and believe in your heart that Elohim has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, and so is saved.” (Romans 10:8-10).

Additionally, with this confession come trials to get us to deny the belief we have confessed in truth. Look at Job how when various trials came upon him all who knew him, even his wife said that either he had done something to bring that on [sinful behavior] and that he should curse the Most High. Hence, the same can be applied to your belief, that is intentional sin reigns, or for this occasion the testing of your belief.

Essentially, either we do or we do not. Those who do persevere, because the testing is bringing about as James said, “endurance”.

Endurance entails that something greater is coming about. Hence,the question becomes who shall overcome it? Ask for wisdom.

Escape or Excuse?


download (2)It is a bunch of crock and bull to use the excuse ‘its a spirit’ concerning homosexuality, or rather, all sin for that matter. Well yeah, duhhh it is a spirit, but if we have authority to case out demons in the Name because these people are carrying a wicked spirit then why aren’t people able to cast those out?

In essence, we yell its a spirit, because we do not know what to do. Its like giving up, helpless, without hope and walking away.

Hence, here comes another excuse because people cannot get help which says they are born that way. Bull corn, fooey and boloney! No! Yah said male and female. So if someone is saying different that means they are lying to them self. A lie has to be thought of, convincing self to belief and then acted out. Then someone none discerning believes the lie too wanting to be well like, wanting to be a good parent, friend, not wanting to offend. People are tricked to unbelief. Because there is always a way out. Yah said it, he provides an escape (1 Corinthians 10:13), but we don’t want escape we want excuse (Romans 1).

Come on now let us reason. Better yet, let us look at the fact that anyonThe Most High said that people are without excuse (Romans 1).e needs help. There is a problem that has over powered the so called church, and its not cause people are not praying, it is because they are praying in the wrong Name.

Illegitimate? Bastard? Or Not of the Tribe–Hebrew Israelites Stand Up and Be Counted!


black-pregnant-woman11In America so called Blacks and other people of the Tribe of Yisra’el, have been stigmatized by the fact that most Hebrew women have, have had and still have today children born with no marital ties to the father; or so it seems. In fact, to further identify and bring home this truth so called blacks have been notorious gaining attention to their relational issues by coining phrases such as; ‘my baby mama, my baby daddy’, and this thinking further promoted by shows like Jerry Springer, Maury Povich and the like enlightened ‘drama seekers’ nationwide of Hebrews plight through DNA testing. Statistically, so called African American are the leading race of single, or one parent homes; mostly mothers and children left alone for various reasons; such as abandonment, prison, or through death.

Accordingly, in America 72% of the black population are fatherless children; or rather where a parent is absent from the home. There has to be separation in the two instances; hence, absent does not equate that the child has no father, because that would be biologically impossible. Furthermore, in countries across the globe other parents of the so called black community face the same plight but on a much smaller scale; Ireland was second (24.3 percent), followed by New Zealand (23.7 percent). Greece, Spain, Italy and Luxemborg had among the lowest percentages of children in single-parent homes.

Consequently, the question is now are the fatherless really the fatherless or is there more to meet the eye here? Moreover, are the children illegitimate or bastards as they have been tagged? The names are not so pronounced today as in the past but still a problem. Today many children are born without their fathers names on their birth certificates. A most harrowing fact is noted, that in times past the term bastard or illegitimate was used to identify a child born out of wed-lock. It is the case that families trying to keep a so called good name would actually send their daughters off to some convent where the unwed girl would deliver the child and the child placed for an adoption. Or there would be relatives out of town who would take the child in until she delivered and raise the child as their own; all this to save the face of the family. However, times have changed and mothers are choosing to raise their children, instead of, giving them away without the father in the home. My prayer is there will be healing and a new and fresh perspective that will help lessen the weight of guilt and shame that comes from this stereotypical thinking concerning the Hebrews.

The term Bastard is translated from the Hebrew term “Mamzer”, which means the same thing; except that it has nothing to do with the fatherless child; or an absent parent, but does concern the one whose seed conceived the babe. In earlier discussions we found out that according to Yah, a man and woman (women) are married when they have sexual intercourse. There is still an ongoing debate for some concerning this fact, however, debating doesn’t change truth. So let’s review.

“And the man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. This one is called ‘woman,’ because she was taken out of man.” For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” (Genesis 2:23,24).

One flesh means that the two join together and make one, and duly noted this act involves producing children together. “And Elohim blessed them, and Elohim said to them, “Bear fruit and increase, and fill the earth and subdue it, and rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over all creatures moving on the earth.” (Genesis 1:28).

The significance of this truth from the beginning is the intention of sex has always been to make babies, of course it is enjoyable, because if it were not then no one would want to do it. Hence, we know that that sex joins a couple in marriage, and married people have babies. Selah.

However, Yah had specific rules for the Nation of Israel concerning his covenant with them: “Guard yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you are going, lest it be a snare in your midst.“ But break down their altars, and smash their pillars, and cut down their Ashĕrim – for you do not bow yourselves to another mighty one, for יהוה, whose Name is jealous, is a jealous Ěl – lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they whore after their mighty ones, and slaughter to their mighty ones, and one of them invites you and you eat of his slaughterings, and you take of his daughters for your sons, and his daughters whore after their mighty ones, and make your sons whore after their mighty ones.” (Exodus 34:12-16).

So Yah did not want the Children of Israel mingling with the inhabitants of the land, because there would be temptation to have sex with the women there and be led astray to idols, also the risk of fathering children with them. One may say that they did so through war. However, this is what the covenant is concerned with. Yah did not want impure children.

Today concerning the Hebrews: “And to the rest I say, not the Master: If any brother has an unbelieving wife, and she thinks well to live with him, let him not send her away. And a woman who has an unbelieving husband, and he thinks well to live with her, let her not send him away. For the unbelieving husband has been set-apart in the wife, and the unbelieving wife has been set-apart in the husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are set-apart.” (1 Corinthians 7:12-14).

This thing about being unequally yoked with unbelievers is very misunderstood. For those of us who can identify with Christian teaching anyone outside the doors of the sect is to be avoided. However, this teaching is misleading. Yah is not talking about Christians or religion, or rather, believing if someone dosen’t go to church they don’t believe. It is the case that if one believes this way they are short sighted, because not going to church doesn’t equal no belief at all. In essence, He is talking about Hebrew marriage where one believes truth and the other does not; could be someone is still in the Christian mindset. Hence, one is redeemed and the other is not, and the premise could be not of the faith or not of the tribe. Hence, if Yah says ma’am sir, stay within your race, he means it.

Well this is taking us to a whole other place of enlightenment, because this is where the term “Mamzer” comes in concerning the bearing of children. Therefore, it is in the seed of the man which determines lineage. Hence, a Hebrew man can take a wife and the child still be Hebrew. However for the women, this is not the case, because the woman does not carry seed her children by someone outside of the tribe will be of another.

MAMZER (Heb. מַמְזֵר), usually translated as “bastard.” A child of a marriage forbidden in covenant. Or non Hebrew lineage.

“No one of illegitimate birth does enter the assembly of יהוה, even a tenth generation of his does not enter the assembly of יהוה.” (Dueteronomy 23:2).

The Book of Ezra says this, “And these were those who came up from Tel Melah, Tel Harsha, Kerub, Addan, Immer, but they were unable to show their fathers house, and their seed, whether they were from Yisra’el: Sons of Delayah, sons of Tobiyah, sons of Neqoda, six hundred and fifty-two; and of the sons of the priests; sons of Habayah, sons of Qots, sons of Barzillai, who took a wife of the daughters of Barzillai the Giladite and was called by (((THEIR))) name. These sought their register among those who were counted by genealogy, but they were not found, so they were barred from the priesthood as defiled. And the governor said to them they should not eat of the most set apart gifts until they stood up a priest with the Urim and Tummim. (Ezra 2:60-62)

Here is an explanation from the Jewish Encyclopedia, “BASTARD: In the English use of the word, a child neither born nor begotten in lawful wedlock; an illegitimate child. There is no Hebrew word of like meaning. The mamzer, rendered “bastard” in the A. V., is something worse than an illegitimate child. He is the offspring of a father and mother between whom there could be in law no binding betrothal: issuing either from adultery between a married woman and a man other than her husband, or from incest within the forbidden degrees of kinship or affinity defined in Lev. xviii. and xx. The child of a marriage simply forbidden, as that between a cohen and a divorced woman, is legitimate but “profane”; that is, a son can not officiate as a priest, a daughter is not eligible to marry a priest. But a mamzer, according to Deut. xxiii. 3, must not “enter the congregation of the Lord,” that is, marry an Israelite woman, “nor shall his tenth generation enter,” etc., which includes also the female mamzer (Ḳid. iii. 12; Mak. iii. 1). The older Halakah, however, was more rigorous, Akiba declaring any child of a forbidden connection a mamzer (Yeb. iv. 12, 13; Yer. ib. 6b; Bab. ib. 44a, 49a).” (See: http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/2648-bastard).

The core of this may not be what one expects; however, for those suffering guilt shame and remorse because the father chose not to stay be assured that the man is at fault if he does not find favor with a wife and walks away without giving a certificate of divorce. Being uneducated and not following Yah has its consequence; in this case for the children. However, the good news is that they are not illegitimate if they have a father; no child is. What makes them illegitimate is difficult to hear (not the seed of the tribe), but we have new knowledge and strength to recover. Press on.

Dinah: A Daughter of Promise


black-mother-baby-16x9-thumb-631xauto-31463-436x355Dinah, Yaacob’s only daughter. What became of her? In text there has only been one instance of so called violence against a woman there and it concerns her (Genesis 34). There have been questions in my mind about her for years. However, learning now about the errors in translation; as well as, missing books has prompted me to look for answers.

Here, rape is the premise in the King James text however, I bring another view.

A recap of the event sees “Dinah going out to visit the daughters of the land.” Hence, knowing what we know about Yacob one can note that the family moved around quiet a bit. How do we know that? We know that Jacob had acquired a flock of sheep and goats, and that being that Hebrews are a hunter and gathering tribe, we also know that these tribes moved around alot, because food sources change with seasons and so do water sources. (See: http://hunter-gatherers.org/facts-and-theories.html). Hence, it is fair to say that Dinah, being new to the neighborhood went out to meet new friends (daughters).

“And Dinah, the daughter of Lĕ’ah, whom she had borne to Yaʽaqoḇ, went out to see the daughters of the land” (Genesis 34:1).

There is a problem here then, why does the translated text present a different view? My understanding says that there are terms which lend to excuse in using violence in situations, also lends premise to why women seek abortion and also throws the ‘taking a wife’ law Yah gives and throws it out the window.

“And Sheḵem, son of Ḥamor the Ḥiwwite, prince of the land, saw her and took her and lay with her, and humbled her.” (Genesis 34:2, The Scriptures).

It is the case that changing terms changes the tone of the story. In the King James Bible the term ‘violated’ or ‘defiled’ is used, and in The Scriptures (See: http://www.isr-messianic.org/) uses the term ‘humbled’.

Big difference, Look:

Violate(d). When one is violated, the premise is that a person has been treated irrevelantly, disrespected, desecrated or profaned.

Defile(d). When one is defiled, they are taken advantage of, made foul or dirty, unclean or tainted; made impure.

Humble(d). when one is humbled the premise is that their independence is destroyed, power of the will of that person.

All of these are good terms to know, but one of these is not like the other in the sense that we have to know Law Concerning Virgins to see truth. (While we’re at it lets look at the word concerning the man ‘taking’ a wife for future reference.)

Let’s take a look:

“If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her, And give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid: Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel’s virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate: And the damsel’s father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her; And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter’s virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city. And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him; And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days. But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father’s house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.”(Dueteronomy 22:13-21).

None of this happened, because the very next verse we see, “And his being clung to Dinah the daughter of Yaʽaqoḇ, and he loved the girl and spoke kindly to the girl.” (Genesis 34:3)

In fact we see that Shekem went and asked his father to go to Yaacob and ask for her to become his wife. Here is the true problem:

1) He did not get permission, he just ‘took her’.
2) There was no ‘Brides Wealth’ or dowry committed to the family of the betrothed until after the deed was done. (for definition of bridewealth, see: http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/79255/bridewealth).

This is why she was violated, in the sense of law because she was not betrothed to him. However, we have to know that this is not the brutal rape that we see today. I am taking you somewhere, hang on.

Look what comes next, “And the sons of Yaʽaqoḇ came in from the field when they heard it. And the men were grieved and very wroth, because he had done a senseless deed in Yisra’ĕl by lying with Yaʽaqoḇ’s daughter, which should not be done.” (Genesis 34:7)

She was disrespected (violated) in this sense that once a virgin is found to be no longer a virgin she can’t marry anyone else, according to Hebrew law her life was ruined; as far as marriage is concerned. So we think, because we don’t see anything else about her after her brothers took her out of Shekems house and killed his entire family.

Yaacob was anquished because of his sons. He obviously did not see that the girl was violently raped. He agreed to the marriage of his daughter. Look at what he told his sons:”And Yaʽaqoḇ said to Shimʽon and Lĕwi, “You have troubled me by making me a stench among the inhabitants of the land, among the Kenaʽanites and the Perizzites. And I am few in number, they shall gather themselves against me and shall smite me, and I shall be destroyed, my household and I.” (Genesis 34:30, The Scriptures)

Why are we not told that? We see other women, prostitutes and their story. Hence, Why aren’t we told what happened to her? Surely if she was worth mentioning one would like to know what became of her. Where to look for truth?

In The Midrash (Yalkut Shimoni, 134) says that Dinah conceived a child, a daughter called Asneth (Shekem’s baby). Asneth grew up and came to live in Potihar’s house in Eqypt. Who else was there? Joseph who was the viceroy to the king and also son to Jacob. Joseph, who eventually married Asenth (his neice) and they had two children; Mansseh and Ephraim. (See also: http://www.lib.rochester.edu/camelot/teams/asnint.htm)Now that so called rape has turned into something else hasn’t it? Through Yah, it is showing us that the event was only made violent because of Yaacob’s sons, and that because of it a child grew up without her father. The fact that she was pregnant was taken out. (To see other accounts: http://jwa.org/encyclopedia/article/dinah-midrash-and-aggadah).

Another view that comes from this knowledge is that Dinah was a single mother, and was not a disturbed rape victim she went on to do other things, and her life gives hope to other single moms to live a modest life despite trials that come. (Psalms 45:13). For our single moms, no matter the reason for it:

The story of Dinah now becomes a story of triumph for every woman who is naturally influential. We have our work ahead but press on sister. The best is yet to come, Don’t allow anyone tell you different.

Truth: Pass It On


“Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me Oh Yah, till I declare your power to the next generation, your might to all who are to come”. (Psalm 71:18).

This is not a one size fit all word, but Truth. It is the case that one would have an identity to pass something down. Not a legacy of slavery and chains, but of Kingdom righteousness. Yah’s power of redeemption for his beloved. Yes, and how can tnis happen unless Yah reveal to us our worth, our value of who we are?

No, our legacy might include a curse for disobedience, however it includes Truth of a Royal Priesthood hand picked and chosen.

Today: pass it on, our future warriors need to hear who they are.

For your hearing:

Psalm 71

You might not like him not but Daddy Does…Daddy rejoices to see him come for you


“And it came to be in those days when there was no sovereign in Yisra’el, that there was a certain Lewite sojourning on the further side of the mountains of Ephrayim. And he took for himself a concubine from Beyth Lehem in Yahudah. And his concubine committed whoring against him, and went away from to her father’s house at Beyth Lehem in Yahudah, and was there four new moons of days. And her husband arose and went after her, to speak to her heart and bring her back, having his servant and a couple of donkeys with him. And she brought him into her father’s house. And the father of the young woman saw him, and he was glad to meet him. And his father in law, the young woman’s father, took hold of him, and he dwelt with him three days. And they ate and drank and spent the nights there. And it came to be on the fourth day that they arose early in the morning. And he prepared to leave, but the young woman’s father said to his son in law, ‘refresh your heart with piece of bread, and afterwards go your way…” (Judges 19: 1-5)

There is plenty to talk about here, because there are misconceptions about divorce and adultery and all types of reasons why people split which are thought to be biblical but are not because the truth has been tainted. First, I would like to pay mention to the reasons why Yahuwah might allow a divorce in the first place. Many people claim adultery in the sense that someone married sleeps with another outside the marriage; as like in this instance. Also the word seems to back up that claim because Yahushua says that adultery is permissible in matters where adultery has transpired; this is truth but not in the way we think. We see here that the text relates an instance saying, “And his concubine committed whoring against him.” To soothe your mind, yes, a concubine is a wife and not a mistress as is taught at church. The difference, in this wife is that she has no dowry; or was not endowed by her betrothed which means that he has no money. In this instance, it is the man who supplies the means of support and it is the case that he being a ‘sojourner’ most likely had nothing to give her. Hence, the couple was poor as are many of us today in societies standards…not poor in spirit but in want of some things.

The text says that she “whored against him…” Hence, is the case with some of us as women who find it difficult to stay with a man who isn’t greatly endowed with material goods; meaning doesn’t have a six figure income, a large bank account or who doesn’t drive a nice car, or isn’t dressed as stylishly as some of these people we see at the local churches and most certainly like those who lead our flocks.

It is no wonder then that our marriages are in trouble. Look at what we are comparing our men to. It is the case that in real life, not dream life, that we must begin to take an honest look to see if this is fair.

Is the case that many leaders are purposely steering our women away from good hard working men?

The text says, “And her husband arose and went after her, to speak to her heart and bring her back.” I have to say that this is proof of love…how many men if that woman cheated would take her back? Men are not as tolerant as women in this area…and in those days when a woman “went a whoring” as this word speaks they were abandoned. Hence, is why Yahushua said, “Whoever puts away his wife he should give her a certificate of divorce lest you cause her to commit adultery.” (Matthew 5:31)

Look at this:
If a man takes a wife and shall marry her, then it shall be, if she finds no favour in his eyes because he has found a matter of uncoveredness in her, and he shall write her a certificate of divorce, and put it in her hand and send her out of his house and she became another man’s wife and he writes her a certificate of divorce or when the latter husband dies, then the former husband cannot take her back to be his wife after she has been defiled, for that would be an abomination to Yahuwah. And do not bring sin on the land which Yahuwah your Elohim is giving you for an inheritance. (Deuteronomy 24:1-4).

Ladies, this is an issue that many of us face. Not many of our men are well endowed with finances and work hard for what they get. We have been swayed and mesmorized with these messages of prosperity but Yahuwah is saying in this hour this is not the way. In fact, we have a word which speaks of the two walking together in agreement. We are greedy and lustful, some of us, spending money before it is made.

This is not about men who don’t try…this is about those who get up and make it happen every single day, about those who make an honest means to an end. We must let go of these fairy tale dreams and face the fact that Daddy loves him and the only way to be prosperous is to stay in his plan.

Good word. Praying for every marriage to be sustained Yah’s way. Hang in there.

Torah teaching in the house of Yahuwah.

Watch:  Straitway Israelite Wedding

 

Thou shalt have no other gods


jESUSHere is something to pray about!

If I had not saw it with my own eyes I would not have believed it. Me and hubby were out today and we stopped at a light…where what to my eyes should appear was a PARKING lot full IDOLS …Yes, you heard it right….idols, as big as a small toddler, or should I say a 7 year old. I kid you not. The most hideous things I have ever seen in life. If I tell you there were statues of the so called Virgin Mary, Jesus in all is fake glory; there a waving and a grinning. Tall Jesus, little Marys, figurines, and little lawn fountains of angles.

Here goes my husband, before he saw the Jesus ones…saying,”One of them will look good in the yard.” I said, “Nope, those are idols! Look at that mess!”

Ladies and Gentlemen, It was as if the devil was mocking me, saying, there is nothing you can do…we’re everywhere.

The devil is a lie. I bind that spirit and I want every last one of you who have family members who buy that junk to tell your family; that is if you care…that they are not worshiping Yahweh, when he says NO IDOLS he means it.

Can we just open our bibles to Exodus 20 and say AMEN
