Introduction

בְרֵי חֲכָמִים כַּדָּרְבֹנֹות וּֽכְמַשְׂמְרֹות נְטוּעִים בַּעֲלֵי אֲסֻפֹּות נִתְּנוּ מֵרֹעֶה אֶחָֽד׃ וְיֹתֵר מֵהֵמָּה בְּנִי הִזָּהֵר עֲשֹׂות סְפָרִים הַרְבֵּה אֵין קֵץ 

~Kohelet 12:11-12a

When one encounters a new translation of the sacred writings, one is perhaps hesitant, and that is understood.  But, the words of G-d are indeed ‘nails well fastened,’ and are powerful beyond language.  Nevertheless, a new translation begs the question, what would compel a soul to attempt another rendering of these same words in a language which has offered so many translations already?  Is it fanciful desire?  Or necessity?  For us, who undertook this monumental task with great hesitance and trepidation, it was necessity.  We realize what we see as necessity may not be seen as necessity by others, but we had a specific goal in mind, and we hope every reader can find value in our bringing that goal to fruition out of our necessity.

What authority or qualifications do we have in order to presume to do this work and offer it to the wider believing community?  We do not claim any superior authority over anyone else, nor intellectual authority over His Word, that precludes anyone else having interpretive authority over His Word.  Further, we do NOT presume to have authority over The Creator and His Son, who are the arbiters of our destiny.  But, we do know this “One Shepherd” who is the composer of these words in Hebrew and Aramaic, collected herein in English, and are as capable through Him of understanding them as any other who has studied those languages.  Our great desire is to restore the context of those words from the original texts: historical, religious, and cultural context, as well as scriptural and linguistic. 

While many people helped to bring this final version to print, this was primarily the effort of one person, a BA in Biblical Studies and an MA in History, whose study of the Hebrew language began some twenty-one years ago, after having become a Messianic believer by studying the Greek and Greek-sourced “New Testament” texts.  After becoming a fluent reader of the Hebrew scriptures, and learning of the Aramaic Peshitta texts, he began to study the Aramaic Peshitta Brit Khadashah in Hebrew and Aramaic.  He is now convinced by those words, and also other, external proofs, that they preceded the Greek translations, and are the source texts of those Greek translations.  We realize not many scholars agree with this conclusion, but some very qualified persons do, and so we are in good company.  But, the greater desire was to have a completely Semitic source of scriptures rendered into English, with the ancient Hebrew and Peshitta texts in Hebrew on facing pages, to give The Word a single flavor: a Jewish flavor.  We still await the completion of a Hebrew/English version.  But, there are many reasons for the desire of a more Jewish, English rendering of the sacred Hebrew texts, even though some already exist.  Those reasons are further elucidated herein.

This is not the making of another book entirely.  This is the making of a single volume that contains the Tanakh and Brit Khadashah writings of the ancient Jews who trusted in  יהוה  for Salvation.  This work is meant to offer the Jewish scriptures which most call the “Old Testament”, in their original language, sourced from the Masoretic Texts, with an improved English rendering of those texts.  The necessity of another English rendering is predicated upon seeing His Name,  יהוה , in the English side of the book, and of seeing the Hebrew nature of the ancient concepts that are communicated in Hebrew to a modern world.  It is thereby meant to bring the reader of the English closer to the Creator, if only from another, slightly different perspective.  We are confident that the English Tanakh herein does exactly that, with integrity, and with beauty.

This work is also meant to offer a Brit Khadashah portion of the printed writ, “HaDavar,” [The Word] in the Hebrew language, sourced from the Aramaic Peshitta texts, and an English rendering on the facing pages.  We still await the Hebrew version, laboring over it diligently and daily. But, this English version shows the reader that His Name,  יהוה , was used by Yeshua and by His Talmidim, including Sha’ul, to declare the Good News of Messiah to the world.  This Brit Khadashah text in English does that, and also serves to offer readers the Jewish flavor of HaDavar, maintaining the integrity of the original texts. It also shows just how Jewish the believers in the Brit Khadashah were, and remained for the rest of their lives.  This volume, therefore, will be unique, giving the reader a different perspective on the use of the Name, completely Semitic text sources for both sides of the Bible, and Hebrew transliterations of important biblical words and concepts.

This translation contains translations of the Masoretic Texts of the Tanakh, and an English rendering of the Aramaic Peshitta Brit Khadashah.  The English Tanakh herein is new and original, but relies heavily on the Jewish Publication Society 1917 Tanakh.  Similarly, the Brit Khadashah herein is new and original, but relies heavily on Lamsa’s 1933 New Testament.  Other sources were consulted for controversial/disputed passages, such as the “Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew and English Lexicon”, the “Ancient Hebrew Lexicon of the Bible” by Jeff Benner, “The Analytical Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon”, by Benjamin Davidson, and “Dictionary of the Targumim, Talmud Bavli, Talmud Yerushalmi and Midrashic Literature” by Marcus Jastrow.

We realize there are similar works out there, but none that we found using the Peshitta as a base text for the Brit Khadashah and the Masoretic Hebrew texts as the base for the Tanakh, that also satisfies our other desires, in a single volume.  

There is not one volume offered by anyone we found that offers both the English and the Hebrew of these source texts in a single volume. And that was our primary motivation for setting about to do this work.  We have yet to complete the Hebrew translation of the Brit Khadashah, but chose to publish the English ahead of time, by request.

Our secondary and tertiary motivations have already been stated: those of giving The Name  יהוה  a preeminent place in the English versions, of making the English language more Jewish in tone, and of clearing up confusing and/or contradictory renderings of certain phrases seen in the more traditional versions of scripture.  We will cite just a few of those to begin to make our point.

There are many places where other Jewish translations of the Hebrew Tanakh into English are obviously not drawing on the Hebrew language alone, but possibly on doctrine, and they seem to betray a motivation to hide the Messiah Yeshua from our Jewish people.  One of these places, and perhaps one of the more important, is in the book of Zekhar-Yah [Zechariah] 12:10 “…and they shall look unto Me [ where it is clear that  יהוה  is speaking ] whom they have pierced; and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his first-born.”  The traditional, Jewish renderings of this verse which read in this wise: “and they shall look unto Me because they have thrust him through”, change the meaning altogether, seemingly in an attempt to hide Messiah from the Jewish reader.  The Christian community has also done likewise with certain verses, seeming to promote doctrine rather than translate the text faithfully.  One example is from the book of Ma’asei HaShlikhim [Acts] 20:7, “And at the beginning of the week, when we assembled to break bread…”  Most offer a different reading of this verse, inserting a word, seemingly to support a doctrine. “On the first day of the week…” This seems to updraid the notion, for doctrical reasons alone, that this was ‘Sunday morning’, when in fact it was Saturday night, the beginning of the biblical week.  Similarly, though probably not deliberate, the use of antiquated English words can leave room for misinterpretation.  The best example of this, perhaps, is the use of the word “tongues” in the Brit Khadashah, where the context clearly shows us this word is referencing known, earthly languages.  Others have used the literal but vague nature of this rendering to create doctrine. 

There are several examples in both sides of the book [OT and NT] where these types of renderings give us pause.  Again, this was NOT our primary motivation, and we are not trying to say that all other versions are bad, but only that in certain places the translators seemed to have been influenced by something other than the language and culture of the original scriptures.  Having these passages cleared up and made more plain seemed a useful and worthy pursuit, in spite of the enormity of it.  Returning the English to a closer, more faithful “Hebrew” flavor gives the reader a better sense of the Jewish nature of these texts, and an understanding of the plain meaning of the text itself, leaving the establishment of doctrine to the reader[s], as much as possible.

The last motivation, but a good one, was that giving the Hebrew tone of the names of Biblical characters, places, and consecrated items not only gives the reader a better sense of the culture of the book, and compels the reader to learn more vocabulary, but also allows a Hebrew student to learn the language more quickly.  Having the Hebrew on hand with this volume makes learning the language more meaningful, by having so large a vocabulary accessible in the texts, and a glossary to help learn those words.

This ten years of diligence, dedication, hard work, and sacrifice has truly been a labor of love.  We truly hope that everyone who invests their time and means into this work is blessed for doing so, as we know and trust that His Word is the most important earthly evidence of our Creator, apart from His People, and the creation itself.

“Yes, He loves the peoples, all His K’doshim, they are in Your hand; and they sit down at Your feet, receiving of Your words.”  

~D’varim 33:3

Features

This work contains only a few features that frame the sacred writings.  Our goal was to offer only “HaDavar,” the expression of the heart of Elohim in Messiah Yeshua, as close to its original written state as possible.  The Hebrew side of the book has been virtually untouched, so much so that the punctuation is very sparse.  Punctuation can at times change the meaning of a sentence.  So, we have left it to the reader to decide on the phrasing in the Hebrew side of the book, only showing the end of a sentence, which is still debatable, given that no ancient texts have punctuation.

The Name

Our treatment of The Name, יהוה , is very similar to how it is treated in a Torah Scroll in the ancient Hebrew: untouched.  There is no voweling at all, so as not to suggest a pronunciation. In the English side of the text, it is treated very similarly to the Dead Sea Scrolls: it is printed in a different alef-bet, with its Hebrew characters, “ יהוה ” , within the English body of text, unvowled, and separated from the rest of the text out of respect, and in order to ‘hallow’ it.  It stands out.  The purpose of this feature is to show the English reader that the Creator has a Name, and to show how very prominant that Name is in understanding the Creator and His Messiah, who inherited that Name.

Transliterated Terms

Many Hebrew names, place names, nouns, adjectives, etc, that influence the Jewish nature of the scriptures are transliterated.  There are various reasons for choosing to do so.  The first is to return the tone of the Scriptures to a more Jewish, ancient tone.  We conclude that too many people do not understand that every writer of these texts was Jewish, and that the Creator worked within a Jewish framework to bring Salvation to the world.  When we say Jewish, we are not necessarily meaning today’s Jewish culture, although so much of that is inherited from Scripture.  We mean that this book was given to the Jews of antiquity, to a believing Remnant that are the custodians of His oracles: “What, then, is the advantage of the Y’hudi? Or what is the advantage of circumcision?  Much in every way!  First, because the Y’hudim were entrusted with the very words of Elohim.”  [Rom 3:1-2]  A glossary is in the back of this book in order to give a ready reference to the reader when the reader encounters a word that might be undiscernable by context.  These words are transliterated also for the purpose of making them distinct from other cultures, ie “Beit HaMikdash” versus “Temple”, as other cultures have temples, but no other culture has a consecrated house for the Creator.

Salvation

One subtle feature that we’d like to point out is on the use of Yeshua’s Name.  Yeshua is transliterated, except for one time, when first declared as the Name of the Messiah in the Brit Khadashah.  “She will give birth to a son, and you will call His Name יֵשׂוּעַ [Yeshua]; for He shall save His people from their sins.”  This is so that an English reader can look across at the Hebrew side and find His Name therein, and realize that it is actually Yeshua, and no other variation so many use today in order to try to make it more agreeable to their doctrine.  “Yeshua” is the noun “Salvation” rendered as a man’s name.  Many men were named Yeshua in Israel before and during the time of Yeshua, as seen in the books of Ezrah and Nekhem-Yah, and in history.  In keeping with that rendering, and its meaning, when the Hebrew Tanakh reads, ‘salvation’ in this manner: ישׁוּעָה , “yeshu’ah” with only the ‘heh’ modifier on the end, this is the noun, “SALVATION”, in Hebrew, and we have rendered this as “Yeshua[h]”, as we believe that in this context it foreshadows our Salvation in Messiah.  Similarly when we see this word otherwise modified,

 וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה אֶל הָעָם אַל תִּירָאוּ הִתְיַצְּבוּ וּרְאוּ אֶת יְשׁוּעַת יהוה אֲשֶׁר יַעֲשֶׂה לָכֶם הַיּוֹם

“And Moshe said unto the people, “Fear not, stand still, and see the Salvation of  יהוה , which He will work for you today,” [Shemot 14:13], then Salvation is capitalized, to show the use of the name of Yeshua in Hebrew, coupled with other modifier[s].  In this way, the reader is better able to see the plan of Salvation in the Tanakh on a deeper level throughout.

Parashot and Haftarot

Another feature is a typical feature in standard, Jewish versions of the Tanakh.  Our Jewish people follow a reading cycle to read the Torah through each year.  This has been going on since antiquity.  Each ‘portion’ of the cycle has a name.  In a standard Tanakh, the name of the portion is indicated, and we have chosen to maintain that custom in this version.

B’reshit Chapter 1

Parashat B’reshit

1In the beginning, Elohim created the heavens and the earth.

The portion’s name is just above the use of the name of that portion in the actual text, in small, bold print.  The very first portion is called “B’reshit,” and that is from the Hebrew side of the text, and is the very first word in the Bible.  In this case, the portion is at the beginning of the chapter, but that is not always the case.  “B’reshit” means “In the beginning,” so the interpretation of that portion’s name is also bold in the English side of the text.  This will make finding the portion each week more easily done.  And the reader will immediately know what the portion’s name means.  

Also in the reading schedule is the Haftarah Portion.  This version makes finding the Haftarah portion a mite easier.  First, the schedule is in the back of the book, called the “Parashot Schedule”.  It shows portions in the Torah and in the Haftarah, and in the Brik Khadashah, as this book also contains the writings of the Messianic Jews of antiquity, the “Shlikhim” of Yeshua HaMashi’akh.  To find the haftarah portion for a particular parashah, which is the portion from the Prophets to be read with that section from the Torah, one should look in the schedule and then go to the book and chapter specified.  Example:  The portion for B’reshit is Yesha-Yahu 42:5-43:10.  The name of the portion will be in the text, before the first verse where that Haftarah division begins, and “end [portion name]” will be after the last verse of that portion and before the next verse.  The example for the B’reshit portion is seen below:

Yesha-Yahu Chapter 42

1“Behold My servant, whom I uphold; My elect, in whom My soul delights; I have put My Ru’akh upon him, he shall make the right to go forth to the nations. 2He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. 3A bruised reed shall he not break, and the dimly burning wick shall he not quench; he shall make justice to go forth according to the truth. 4He shall not fail nor be crushed, till he has set justice in the earth; and the isles shall wait for his Torah.”

B’reshit 5Thus says God,  יהוה , He that created the heavens, and stretched them forth, He that spread forth the earth and that ……..

………..

Yesha-Yahu Chapter 43

………..10You are My witnesses, says  יהוה , and My servant whom I have chosen; that you may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He; before Me there was no god formed, neither shall any be after Me. end B’reshit  11I, even I, am  יהוה 

As there is not yet global agreement in the Messianic community on portions, and as there are simply too many sections in those portions, we have decided not to do the same in the Brit Khadashah.

Table of Contents

While a table of contents can hardly be a unique feature, in the case of HaDavar יהוה , it is a very necessary feature.  We have broken from standard and tradition concerning the order of the books in this version.  

First, in the Tanakh, the book order follows the order usually followed in other Jewish versions of the Tanakh, with some exceptions.  We still adhere to the “Torah, Nevi’im, and K’tuvim” to comprise the order.  In fact, we are striving to adhere more accurately to it concerning the Nevi’im.  The Torah is the Torah, so nothing has changed there.  But, the Nevi’im, the list of “Prophets”, we have modified, we believe with very good reason.  Most Jewish versions of the Tanakh have moved Dani’el over to the section of the K’tuvim.  This, we believe, is a deliberate distraction, and a change of the status of the person of Dani’el from Navi to ‘poet.’  Dani’el, for anyone who is a follower of Messiah Yeshua, must be seen as a Navi [Prophet].  The timing of his prophecies concerning Messiah aligns too perfectly with the arrival of Yeshua.  We believe this is why the Rabbinic Jewish community moved the book of Dani’el out of the section of the Nevi’im.  As we are followers of Yeshua, we have absolute confidence that Dani’el is a Navi, and his writings are equal in status to the other Nevi’im.  Yeshua said, “When you see the sign of the uncleanness of desolation, as spoken by the Navi Dani’el, standing in the M’kom Kadosh, whoever reads it will understand it.” (Matai 24:15, Yokhanan Markos 13:14).  Dani’el ministered after Yirme-Yahu but before Yekhezkel, so we have placed his writings between those two books.  In similar fashion, we have moved Ezrah and Nekhem-Yah just after Yekhezkel, because these are also prophetic works, especially concerning the Name of Yeshua, and they ministered just after Yekhezkel.  

In regard to the Brit Khadashah, we have followed the Aramaic Peshitta ordering of the texts, with each B’sorah in the traditional order, then Ma’asei HaShlikhim, but then come the Jewish letters, and then the letters to the Gentile communities, and then Ivrit, the last letter to the Messianic Jewish community in Yisra’el, and then the Hitgalut.  The names of all the books are only transliterated, as a teaching tool, with the exception of Yokhanan Markos.  This is the “Gospel of Mark” traditionally.  We believe this Markos was the one “also called” Yokhanan, and is much like Sha’ul, in that he had both a Hebrew name and a Greek name.  Many Jews today also have their given Hebrew name, and the name they use around others in their home country, outside of Yisra’el.

Glossary

As already indicated, there is a relatively extensive glossary in the back of this volume.  It defines transliterated terms used throughout this work in a very concise way, with a very plain definition of the terms.  Other than the Name  יהוה  and Yeshua’s name, which are at the beginning of the glossary, the list is in alphabetical order for easy reference to those terms.  

Parashot Schedule

The Parashot Schedule in the back shows all of the scheduled readings that begin at the start of the year on the first Sabbath after Simkhat Torah, and end with the last reading at the end of the year on Simkhat Torah.  Portions are availalbe for each week, with Torah, Haftarah, and Brit Khadashah portions listed and numbered.  There are also readings for the High Holy Days at the end of the schedule.

The Tzar is Coming!

 27And  יהוה  shall scatter you among the peoples, and you shall be left few in number among the nations, where  יהוה  shall lead you away. 28And there you shall serve gods, the work of men’s hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell. 29But from there you will seek  יהוה  your Elohim; and you shall find Him, if you search after Him with all your heart and with all your soul. 30In your distress, when all these things are come upon you, in the Akharit HaYamim, you will return to  יהוה  your Elohim, and hearken unto His voice; 31for  יהוה  your Elohim is a merciful God; He will not fail you, neither destroy you, nor forget the Brit of your fathers which He swore unto them.

There is so much information in this small passage, and most modern ‘preachers’ overlook it, especially in the Messianic and Jewish communities.

This is in D’varim [Deuteronomy] 4, and Moshe is here retelling the history of Yisra’el since the wilderness, getting the next generation ready to go in and possess the land. In the middle of his speech, he prophesies to the sons of Yisra’el, predicting their misbehavior, idolatry, and turning away from יהוה and His Truth. They did just that, and all the Nevi’im could see it coming, and were sent to warn them, including Yokhanan HaMatbil, who said, “10Behold, the axe is already placed at the root of the trees; therefore, every tree which does not bear good fruits shall be cut down and cast in the fire. 11I am just immersing you with water for repentance; but He who is coming after me is greater than I,  the  one even whose shoes I am not worthy to remove; He will immerse you with The Ru’akh HaKodesh [The Holy Spirit], and with fire, 12whose shovel is in His hand, and He purifies His threshings; the wheat He gathers into His barns, and the straw He burns up in the unquenchable fire.”” He was, of course, speaking to Yisra’el at the end of the “Two Days for Yisra’el”, the beginning of the “Two Days for Messiah”, our last 2,000 years. But, Yisra’el did not, ever, ‘hear’ the warnings. They killed all the Nevi’im, including Yokhanan, and they even killed the very Son of God.

They did that even after having been diminished by ten tribes. The promised remnant returned to Yehudah [2 Chron 30], and Yokhanan warns all twelve tribes, now called “Jews”, of the coming culling away and the beginning of the Messianic Kingdom, a spiritual kingdom first, and then a physical one. Since the majority of Yisra’el did not listen, however, they were indeed FINALLY scattered to the four winds, the remnant of ALL TWELVE TRIBES, in 150 A.D., fulfilling Moshe’s prophecy. Moshe said that in the “Akharit HaYamim”, the LAST DAYS, they would return, ” וְשַׁבְתָּ ” ‘do Teshuvah’, REPENT! And it looks a lot like “Shabbat”, just fyi. The verse starts this way, “In your TRIBULATION [distress], when all ‘these words/things’ are found by you, THEN you will REPENT. This is concerning ALL TWELVE TRIBES, who are now SMALL IN NUMBER! יהוה was speaking to ALL TWELVE TRIBES, and ALL of them will be SMALL in number, like our Jewish people today. But certain liars have gone into the world and beguiled people into thinking they are the ‘ten northern tribes’, a ‘multitude among the nations’, and that THEY are Yisra’el. That is one of the greatest LIES that HaSatan has told in these last days. They put stock in their FLESH. The doctrine plays to their petty, fleshly desire to ‘be’ something more than SAVED by Elohim in spite of their sin. They think they ‘deserve’ salvation because of their DNA. It is a sickness.

To our Jewish people: the ‘distress’, the ‘tribulation’ long predicted, the “Time of Jacob’s Trouble”, is almost upon you. Repent, NOW, or do so during the worst times the world has ever seen. Which has NOT started as yet.

Send In The Clowns

What they’re really saying is ‘follow our scientists’. NOT ‘follow the ‘science‘.

The word ‘science’ is rooted in ‘knowledge’. Scientists are ‘supposed’ to be the finders and purveyors of knowledge. This knowledge is supposed to be based on observable, repeatable FACT.


This is NOT what you are getting concerning neither the vax nor the bug.


I have held a suspicion against certain “scientists” for years now, after studying the evidence myself and learning that evolution is a mere THEORY that is being forced down our throats as fact.


Evolution is NOT fact! It is not and cannot be proven. It is a religious interpretation of the evidence by people who have chosen not to believe the biblical narrative.


An atheist needed an origin theory in order to justify his disbelief in the Creation. He set out to find it. He found ‘evidence’ over which he imposed conclusions, and wrote a persuasive paper, and along with other ‘scientists’ convinced much of mankind that we were not specially created in six days by the God of the universe.


“Scientists” have been LYING to the public for the last 162 years! The science does NOT emphatically prove evolution, yet the whole world runs on that ‘theory’, calls it ‘fact’, and tries to destroy anyone who thinks otherwise by arrogantly dismissing them as ignorant.


These ‘scientists’ did the same things as other liars who have learned how to silence opposition: they get into a position of power and authority, gain a majority in one place, and start screaming that their narrative is the truth, over, and over, and over again. And most of mankind eventually capitulates. “Do not follow a multitude into error”. Our Creator knows the power of a lie, and the tendency of people to want to feel ‘safe’ with the majority, EVEN IF that majority will take them into destruction. And the sad truth is, the scriptures warned us that the majority of mankind would indeed behave like lemmings and walk down a broad, broad path to destruction. We are living it.

I ‘believe’ in dinosaurs. Not because everyone else does, but because I have actually seen the bones. But, I also believe that they coexisted with mankind. Why? Because the scriptures describe them doing so. Because they are not found very deep in the soil at all. I believe they died off after the flood.

The scriptures teach that the atmosphere for the first 1000 years was very different than what we live under. There was no rain. The earth was watered from a mist coming out of the ground, and was covered in a bubble of water above the sky. That bubble burst, because God burst it, and it fell to the earth, creating our very deep oceans, and modifying the surface of the earth, crushing everything in its extreme weight, and then settling into the soils and below the surface, burying millions upon millions of people and animals instantaneously. Those that survived repopulated the earth. Some of those species died off because of the change in atmosphere. There was not as much vegetation; before the flood every creature was an herbivore; afterward, we were instructed to eat meat, and God put enmity between man and beast, creating the survival instinct. That was about 5,000 years ago. I realize the clowns see that as simpleton, and preposterous. It is not near as ‘preposterous’ as believing everything we see was a cosmic accident of chaotic proportion that created all the order we see.

The flood is the reason the data is so misunderstood. Leading ‘evolutionists’ only deny the flood because they say it would have taken an outside force to start it. Yes. That force was the Creator. They basically will NOT look at the evidence from that perspective, because it means they would have to admit they could be wrong.

Peter warned us about this. He said that in our day mankind would deliberately forget the CREATION AND the FLOOD! And deny the master of all. Does it surprise you that we now sit here, ruled by fools who think they are smarter than God?

I have debated with high-minded people on this topic. One atheist and evolutionist I knew confronted me about it while sitting in a Muslim country, in a five-star hotel’s restaurant, surrounded by sheiks, and I told him in fact, no, he was not an atheist, because he is not a fool. Then, I gave him a detailed account of the creation and the flood, and then the gospel. I learned two years or so later that he had come to believe in God, and in His Son, Yeshua the Messiah. It is the fool that says in his heart that there is no God. The simple and emphatic declaration of truth with more passion than the clowns and their lies WILL change a heart.

FOOLS have been lying to you. FOOLS have been running our educational institutions and teaching your children. FOOLS have been controlling you and making you fear something that only has a less-than-one-percent chance of killing you! What does it mean when someone allows a fool to lead them?

Dress up the assertion in sophistry, and the clowns in manmade, self-appointed degrees and accolades, and anyone will believe them. I just watched the lead clown try to defend his May 11 lie before Congress, and his ONLY argument was, ‘many educated people up and down the chain have looked at this paper and said that this is not about….’ He could not and did not stand against the very plain assertion that he lied. He simply tap-danced by appealing to the ‘authorities’. And the many will believe him. Well, pardon me, but the authorities have gone round the bend, a LONG time ago.

This covid, manufactured virus, and the vaccine are indeed being used as a PSYOP. You are being conditioned to follow the crowd. To submit without question. In places around the country and around the globe, if you do not submit to the narrative, you are not allowed to travel, to work, to buy or sell. And people have been looking at the community of faith for many years now saying that we are crazy to think that one man could convince every human being to take a mark in order to buy and sell goods. Well, we are seeing that already a huge percentage of the population is willing to take an untested vaccine ‘in order to feel safe’, and to comply with just such regulation. This shot is most certainly aiding in preparing mankind for the upcoming great deception, which is already in the world.

And this is happening in the ‘land of the free and the home of the brave’. To me, we are sadly the land of the freeloaders and the home of the compliant. Too many people of faith are simply sitting idly by, hoping that this just passes. It is not going to pass. Mashi’akh HaSheker, the False/Lying Messiah will be ‘revealed’ to mankind soon, and all of what we are experiencing is showing us that indeed mankind will simply fall in line. The spirit of that lying Messiah has been in the world since antiquity, and mankind has always followed it, and not the Spirit of Messiah, with the exception of a few. The United States used to be that exception. But, believers are no longer believing in a code of righteousness, like our founders did, though they quibbled over ‘how’ to live it and had their differences. At least back then they KNEW there was a CREATOR who endowed mankind with his rights. The denial of the creator is the very reason our rights are so malleable and changeable; they see them as granted by ‘self’, the new god of America.

Until the country is broken over its sin of turning away from the Creator and from His Son and His Salvation by the blood of Messiah Yeshua, we are doomed. Until those who SAY they believe actually ACT like they believe in the God of the Bible, and seek out righteousness from His WHOLE Word, they will languish with the rest of mankind, and prove themselves false to Him. “Depart from me, you workers of iniquity; I never knew you!” Yeshua says that to BELIEVERS on judgment day!

I do not hope for America to turn around. I see no evidence of it. I see many people hoping in a rescue from man, but scant few who have turned away from their own sins in order to set things right. We kill babies wantonly. We promote sexual promiscuity in our entertainment and ignore it in the congregations; we promote sexual perversion in our entertainment, and protect it now with our laws, and punish anyone who says we should rethink this and help those perverted by this world and its demons. And so many, the majority of those who say they believe, say nothing and do nothing.

Not all scientists are bad; there are a few who try to show people a BETTER interpretation of the evidence. Creation cannot be scientifically proven, because it cannot be repeated and observed more than once. But, neither can evolution. But, among men, creation is a theory far more believable, and actually supported by the evidence. But, the creation interpretation has been silenced by the masses, by the clowns. And there are far too few with courage enough to speak up against the clowns, and fewer still willing to study a bit and learn why the creation model makes more sense. Among believers, we who say we ‘know’ Yeshua and His Father OUGHT to believe in the Creation without doubt, because His Word is the most PROVABLE substance in our lives! If it is not true, YOU ARE NOT SAVED FROM YOUR SIN.

The follow the clown mentality is the ‘evidence’ that we are indeed living in the last of the last days. “Come indeed, Master Yeshua”.

Here is one article that presents a proper interpretation of some evidence.

The “New Testament” Teaches Torah AND Good Works

Many of my beloved, believing fb friends often post scriptures out of context that seem to say that the Sabbath is irrelevant, that the Torah is irrelevant, and that anyone who says anything hinting at a possible goodness of keeping His Torah is “under the law”, and that they are utterly free from every commandment. To be ‘under’ any law is to be under the weight of its punishment for BREAKING it. The Jews of the Galatian error were indeed breaking Torah, as many of our Jewish people still do, by teaching commands of men in place of God’s commands, as do so many Christians.

Deep down in their hearts, however, Christians should know that they cannot dishonor their parents or commit murder, because the Ten Commandments say so. Yet, sandwiched between those two commandments they say ARE still valid is another commandment, the LONGEST commandment of the Ten: 

“REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY, TO SANCTIFY IT.” And the command goes on to say that this is the SEVENTH DAY, on which GOD HIMSELF rested, on which YESHUA rested AND worshipped, saying that God made the Sabbath for mankind. Indeed He did, in Genesis 2:1-2. At the beginning of time. For all people descended from Adam.

They cite a few verses completley bereft of BIBLICAL CONTEXT. JUDAIC context in which EVERY BOOK of the Bible was written; and they shore up each other’s dismissal of His loving instructions, all the while saying they love Him. Yeshua said, “IF you LOVE me, you WILL keep my commandments, just as I keep My Father’s commandments!” In Luke 4:16, and in roughly thirty other passages or more, Yeshua is seen worshipping in the Synagogue and the Temple on the Sabbath and the other Holy Days of His Father, “as His custom was!”

Our beloved Christian friends think they are following Yeshua, when in fact they follow Constantine and his popes. 

I have done a similar exercise as they, pulling many verses from the “New Testament” to show support for keeping His Torah, Sabbath, and laws, and doing ‘good works’, which these sweet believers decry. These verses below conveniently get overlooked in the ‘argument’.

I do NOT post this to argue, neither will I argue. I post it for the ONE OR TWO FEW who want truly to find THE way of Yeshua. Who KNOW there is something confusing about what the world teaches concerning Messiah.

I will begin with this verse, which is later cited again:

“For we are His creation, created through Yeshua The Messiah ultimately for GOOD WORKS, which God has ordained FROM ANTIQUITY that we SHOULD LIVE IN THEM.” Eph 2:10

The perspective of  ‘antiquity’ in that verse is from Israel in the FIRST century A.D., looking back to mount Sinai in the 20th century B.C. [2,000 years before Messiah when Moshe delivered Israel.]

God ordained the GOOD works of the Torah at Mount Sinai, that EVERY child of Abraham SHOULD WALK IN THEM.

There is a brief explanation of the confusion of the books of Galatians and Romans further down, explaining the truth against the perverted interpretation honest people have been taught, accepting on trust that the translation and interpretation was true. They were and are well-meaning people, many of them; but many are simply using the perversion as a convenience to control and extort God’s people.

Read and consider. Insult me, and you’ll simply be deleted and blocked. If you want an honest conversation, show me that, and you’ll have it.

I hope that one or two grows courage to read all the way through, pray, and consider the UNITY of God and His Son, and both “sides” of HIS ONE BOOK.

“What, then? Do we nullify the Torah through faith? What profanity! On the contrary, we FIRMLY ESTABLISH the Torah!” Rom 3:31

“What shall we then say? Shall we continue in sin [break Torah 1jo3.4] that compassion may abound? What profanity! How shall we who are dead to sin [breaking torah] continue to live in it [sin, breaking torah]?” Rom 6:1-2

“What then? Shall we sin [break Torah] because we are not under the Torah but under compassion? WHAT PROFANITY! Do you not know that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are, that you obey him, whether it be to SIN, or whether it be of OBEDIENCE to righteousness?…” Rom 6:15-16

“Now, being made free from SIN, you become the servants of righteousness. For the wages of sin [breaking Torah] is DEATH; but the gift of Elohim is life eternal through Our Master Yeshua The Messiah.” Rom 6:18, 23

“What shall we say then? Is the Torah sin? WHAT PROFANITY!  I would not have known the meaning of sin except by means of the Torah; for I would never have known the meaning of covetousness unless the Torah said “you shall not covet.””  Rom 7:7

SIN MISLED ME, SIN KILLED ME using the torah/commandment!

“For SIN [breaking torah], finding occasion BY the commandment, misled me and by it [SIN] killed me. Therefore the Torah is HOLY, and the commandment is HOLY, and just, and GOOD. Has then that which is good [Torah] become death to me? WHAT PROFANITY!  But sin that is exposed as sin, and works death in me for that which is good [torah], will be the more condemned BY MEANS OF the Torah.” Rom 7:11-13

“For we know that the Torah is FROM THE SPIRIT; but I am of the flesh, enslaved to SIN [see previous verse, is the torah sin? WHAT PROFANITY].  Rom 7:14

I thank Elohim for deliverance through Our Master Yeshua The Messiah. Now therefore with my mind I am a servant of the Torah [slaves to righteousness!] of God; but with my flesh I am a servant of the law of sin. Rom 7:25

SIN is the ‘other law’. Stop perverting His Word.

Col 2 does say not to let anyone judge you ‘concerning’ the Sabbath and new moons and feast days… but, it actually is talking about pagans judging believers for keeping them!

Regardless, it says let no MAN judge you in how/why/if you keep the Sabbath. 

Nothing in the passage tells us to turn away from the Sabbath. There is not ONE place in ALL of scripture that turns us from the Sabbath. In fact, EVERY “NT” writer continued to keep the Sabbath, just like Yeshua does. Neither is there any scripture that teaches us to turn away from obeying His Torah. Scripture DOES teach us not to trust in ‘our works’ to SAVE us; but, there are JUST as many verses to tell us, in the NT, to do GOOD WORKS. We are not saved by Torah, but the saved keep Torah. Christians keep the Torah, they just only keep a distilled version of it by going to ‘church’ on “sun-day”. Otherwise, they would not even go to any worship on a regular, weekly basis. That idea is a TORAH precept. Why do it? It is the Torah that tells us what sin is. [1 Jo 3:4] Either we follow its guidance in that regard, or we ignore it. Tossing poorly translated scriptures around out of context accomplishes nothing. Yeshua indeed blotted out the written record of our sins, NOT HIS WRITTEN WORD. Does a good person honestly think that when Yeshua hung on the tree that he blotted out FIVE BOOKS of the Bible people yet so eagerly quote? 

Think about it. Yeshua Himself said this: “Do NOT expect that I have come to nullify the Torah or the prophets; I have not come to nullify it, but to confirm it. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not even one yod [the smallest Hebrew letter], nor a stroke [of the pen] shall pass away from the Torah until everything comes to pass. Whoever therefore tries to nullify even ONE of these smallest commandments, and teaches men so, he shall be regarded as small in the Kingdom of Heaven; but anyone who observes and teaches them, he shall be regarded as great in the Kingdom of Heaven.”

Yet people want to nullify every single command, turning sin loose on God’s children like a free for all. Either keeping the Sabbath is right in God’s eyes, or it’s wrong. No one judges anyone by simply encouraging people to take another look at SCRIPTURE. 

It is in fact true that the popes MOVED the Sabbath FROM Saturday TO “sun-day”. “Let us NO LONGER have anything to do with that disgusting people, the Jews; let us HENCE FORTH [from here forward, from now on] worship on the great day of Sol Invictus”. ~ Constantine, founder of pagan Catholicism. 

The man was a pagan for the rest of his life. Shortly thereafter, they had to begin to KILL Jewish AND Gentile BELIEVERS in Messiah to stop them from worshipping on the Sabbath of GOD. She [catholicism and other protestant faiths, the harlot of Rev 17-18] indeed has the blood of the holy ones on her hands. Follow the popes if you like, but we have decided to follow the Messiah, who Himself kept the Sabbath every week. [Luke 4:16] As did Paul [1 Cor 11:1-2] 

Paul even observed a sacrificial rite to PROVE that he STILL kept Torah, YEARS after having seen Messiah and preaching His Good News: 

“Our brother [Paul], see how many thousands there are in Y’hudah [Jews] who are believers, and they are all zealous for the Torah: but they have been informed about you that you teach all the Jews who are among the Nations to forsake the Torah of Moshe, stating that they ought not to circumcise their children, neither to follow after the customs of the Torah. Now, therefore, they have heard that you have come here. Do, therefore, what we tell you. We have four men who have vowed to purify themselves; take them and go purify yourself with them, and pay their expenses so that they may shave their heads; then everyone will know that what has been said against you IS A LIE, and that you yourself UPHOLD the Torah and OBEY it. As for the believers amongst the gentiles, we have written that they should abstain from the things sacrificed to idols, and from fornication, and from what is strangled, and from blood.” Then Paul took the men and on the next day he was purified with them, and he entered into the Temple, informing them how to complete the days of purification until the gift of every one of them was offered.” Acts 21:15-26

Judge Torah keepers if you like; but, we will follow Messiah’s example, who saves us by His precious blood, and compels us to do good works.

Abraham was justified/saved BY FAITH, and THEN he obeyed and kept ALL HIS COMMANDS: ““Abraham obeyed Me and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.” [Gen 26:5]

“If you were Abraham’s children, you would be doing the works Abraham did.” John 8:39

“And let us consider one another, to stir up love and good works“; Heb 10:24

“And let our people be taught to do good works” Titus 3:14

“This is a true saying, and these things I want you constantly to affirm, so that those who trust in Elohim may be careful to do good works continually. These things are good and profitable to men.” Titus 3:8

“For His compassion, the salvation of all that belong to Elohim, has been revealed to all men. It [His compassion] teaches us to renounce what is not from God, and worldly lusts, and to live in this world soberly, righteously, and in fear of God, looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of the great God, and Our Savior Yeshua The Messiah, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and might PURIFY us to be His own, a NEW people, ZEALOUS OF GOOD WORKS. These things speak, and exhort and REBUKE with all authority. Let no man despise you.” Titus 2:11-15

“In everything, show yourself an example in all GOOD WORKS, and in your teaching let your word be sound. Choose sound words that are instructive, so that no man can point the finger of scorn at us, and so that he who is against us may be shamed, when he can find nothing evil to say about us.” Titus 2:7-8

“For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you and to ask that you might be filled with the knowledge of the will of God in all wisdom and in all spiritual understanding, that you might live a righteous life, please God with all GOOD WORKS, and bring forth good fruits and grow in the knowledge of Elohim; and be strengthened with all might, according to the greatness of His Glory, in all patience and longsuffering, so that you may joyfully give thanks to God the Father, who has enlightened us and made us worthy partakers of the inheritance of the Holy Ones [Abraham and the other torah keepers], and has delivered us from the power of darkness and brought us to the kingdom of His Beloved Son, by whom we have obtained redemption and the forgiveness of sins.” Col 1:9-14

“In all my prayers for you, I make supplication with joy, for your fellowship in the Good News from the very first day until now, being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun the GOOD WORKS among you, the same will continue it until the day of Our Master Yeshua the Messiah.” Phil 1:4-6

“For we are His creation, created through Yeshua The Messiah ultimately for GOOD WORKS, which God has ordained FROM ANTIQUITY that we SHOULD LIVE IN THEM.” Eph 2:10

“Let us not be weary in good works; for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Gal 6:9

“But let every man examine his own WORK, and then may he glory within himself, alone, and not among others.” Gal 6:4

“Because of the hardness and impenitence of your heart you are laying up for yourself a treasure of wrath for the day of wrath and the revelation of the righteous judgment of Elohim, who will render to every man according to his deeds: to those who continue patiently in good works, seeking glory and honor and immortality, He will give Eternal Life; but to those who are stubborn and do not obey the truth, but obey iniquity, He will render indignation and wrath.  He will render suffering and affliction for every man who does evil, for the Yehudim first, and also for the Arame’ans; but glory, honor and shalom for everyone who does good, to the Yehudim first, and also to the Arame’ans.  For there is no respect of persons with God.  For those who have sinned outside of Torah shall also perish outside of Torah; and those who have sinned in the Torah shall be judged by the Torah, for it is not the hearers of the Torah who are righteous before Elohim, but it is the DOERS of the Torah who shall be justified.” Rom 3:5-13

“But consecrate  יהוה  Messiah in your hearts; and be ready to give an answer in meekness and reverence to everyone who seeks from you a word concerning the hope of your absolute trust, having a good conscience, so that they who speak evil of you as of evildoers may be ashamed as men who belittle your good works in Messiah. For it is better, if it is the will of God, that you suffer for good deeds, rather than for evil doing.” 1 Pet 3:15-17

“For so also in the past did the consecrated women who trusted in  Elohim  adorn their lives and were submissive to their own husbands, even as Sarah was submissive to Avraham, and called him ‘My Adon’; her daughters you are by reason of good works, and so long as you are not confused by any kind of false value.” 1 Peter 3:5-6

“For such is the will of Elohim, that by your good works you may silence the mouths of foolish men who know not Elohim.” 1 Peter 2:15

“My beloved ones, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from carnal desires, which war against the soul; and let your conduct be good before all men, so that those who speak evil words against you may see your good works and glorify God at the day of trial.” 1 Peter 2:11-12

“Do not wonder at this; for the time is coming when all those who are in their graves will hear His voice,  and they will come out; those who have done good works to the resurrection of life; and those who have done evil works to the resurrection of judgment.” John 5:28-29

“So let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and glorify Your Father in Heaven.” ~Yeshua Matt 5:16

The Galatians issue was NOT that of turning away from the Sabbath or God’s other holy days. It was about FALSE BRETHREN telling gentiles they must be circumcised TO BE SAVED. Circumcision was NEVER about salvation. In the 1st century, the Pharisees were divided into two houses: Hillel and Shammai. Hillel believed gentiles SHOULD come to faith and be saved WITHOUT circumcision. Paul was taught by Gamaliel, the grandson of Hillel. Shammai believed gentiles must FULLY CONVERT to BE a Jew, IN ORDER TO BE SAVED. THAT was the issue. ALL GENTILES were worshipping God in the JEWISH SYNAGOGUES, along with saved AND unsaved Jews of BOTH houses. Some of Shammai pretended to be Messianic, and enforced MANMADE doctrine by using scare tactics, telling gentiles they would not see heaven if they were not circumcised. Paul put this to bed with his letter, and so did the first council of the congregation in Acts 15. And the Jewish believers put about SIX CHAPTERS of the TORAH on the GENTILES as a MINUMUM so they could stay in fellowship. This is how they introduced those laws Gentiles SHOULD obey: “For it is the will of The Holy Spirit and of us [Jewish Leaders] to lay upon you no ADDITIONAL BURDEN [there IS a burden] than these necessary things: that you abstain from sacrifices offered to idols [Lev and Deut, several chapters], and from blood [Lev 17], and from creatures strangled [Lev 11, Deut 14], and from fornication [Lev 18-19]; when you keep yourselves from these things, you will do well. Stand steadfast in Our Master.” [Acts 15:28-29] And James had just previously implicated that the Gentiles will continue to learn the Torah ON THE SABBATH: [Acts 15:21] “For Moshe, since early generations, has those who declare him in the Synagogues in every city who read him on every Sabbath Day.” THAT is where these Gentiles were worshipping Yeshua!

Most people do not understand Galatians and Romans; neither did they back then: 

“And consider that the longsuffering of Our Master is for Salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, as also in all his letters he speaks concerning these matters, in which there are certain things so hard to be understood that those who are ignorant and unstable twist their meaning, as they do also the OTHER scriptures [Torah!] to their own DESTRUCTION. You therefore, my beloved, seeing that you know these things beforehand, BEWARE, lest you follow the error of those WITHOUT TORAH, and fall from your own steadfastness. But grow in compassion and in the knowledge of Our Master and Savior, Yeshua the Messiah, and of God the Father. To Him be glory both now and forever, and through all eternity. Amein.” 2 Peter 3:15-19

Again, Yeshua HIMSELF said that He did NOT come to nullify the Torah, but to confirm it [fulfill is not a bad xlation, but so misunderstood; He is STILL confirming/fulfilling His Torah IN US]:

“Do not expect that I have come to nullify the Torah or the prophets; I have not come to nullify it, but to confirm it. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not even one yod, nor a stroke [of the pen] shall pass away from the Torah until everything comes to pass. Whoever therefore tries to nullify even ONE of these smallest commandments, and teaches men so, he shall be regarded as small in the Kingdom of Heaven; but anyone [JEW OR GENTILE] who OBSERVES AND TEACHES them [commandments of the Torah], he shall be regarded as great in the Kingdom of Heaven.” ~ Yeshua, Matt 5:17-19

Wakey Wakey! Eggs and Cakey!

Unless you have beef bacon, of course!

We live in the darkest time in human history, in my opinion. We refer back to the ‘dark ages’ as if they were. But, today, people decide to ignore truth; it is not that they have been kept in the dark by denying them the ability to read, or telling them overtly that they are created to be poor and ignorant, as the ‘church’ and royalty did for more than 1,000 years. It is that they are dogs returning to the vomit of willful ignorance, denying the Creator, denying the NEED for Salvation in His Son, salvation from the innate propensity to SIN, to go against His law. This is a very dark time, where world leaders force the notion that killing a baby is a ‘good thing’, that a manmade virus appeared as if from nowhere because a man ate a bat, that one group is inherently racist and the other is not, that men should marry men, women women, and soon probably humans and animals. The times we live in are SICK. And the Congregation of Messiah seems content to just let it be so, not wanting to rock the boat.

Here is just a little encouragement that YOU, if you TRUST in Yeshua as the Son of G-d to redeem you from YOUR sin, and that G-d raised Him from the dead as proof He is His Son, then you have in you the necessary light to shine into this dark world. Use it!

Join The Little Sanctuary LIVE!

Mikdash Meh’at in The Woodlands, Texas, is indeed a “Little Sanctuary”, but we have big meals.

1And I, my brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech, nor did I declare to you the Sod of Elohim in wisdom.  2For I did not pretend to know anything among you except Yeshua HaMashi’akh, and Him executed on the stake.  3And I was with you with much reverence for Elohim and in trembling.  4And my speech and my declaration were not with enticing words of wisdom, but in demonstration of HaRu’akh and of power, 5so that your trust might not rest in the wisdom of men, but in the power of Elohim.

The POWER of G-d is in transformed lives. The most powerful miracle of ALL creation is when someone comes to SALVATION in Messiah Yeshua. For that light to continue to burn is the next most extravagant miracle our Creator does, and He leaves it to us to bring it to pass.

There are plenty of options from which to choose when choosing with whom you fellowship. We do NOT come with enticing words, with the most excellent building, or the most skillful music, with lights, glitz, glamor, etc. But our pursuit is the PATHWAY of YESHUA the Messiah.

Believers today are so scattered. There is so much variation in doctrine and worship. Return to “HaDerekh”, “The Way”, the path that Yeshua followed. That path is NOT easy!

51Remember, Adonai, the taunt of Your servants; how I do bear in my bosom [the taunt of] so many peoples; 52Wherewith Your enemies have taunted, O  יהוה , wherewith they have taunted the footsteps of Your Mashi’akh. ~Tehillah 89

We want to “overcome”, we want to have “Nitzakhon!” VICTORY! CONQUEST! And it is HIS WORD that gives us victory!

12Adonai gives the word; those who declare the good news are a great army. ~Tehillah 68

11This is a true saying, “For if we die with Him, we shall also live with Him: 12if we suffer, we shall also reign with Him; if we deny Him, He also will deny us; 13but if we trust not in Him, yet He will still remain faithful; for He cannot deny Himself.” 14You should keep these things in remembrance as a testimony before Adoneinu, that the faithful should not argue over words in which there is no profit, but which are destruction to those who listen to them.  15Strive to conduct yourself perfectly before Elohim, as a soldier without reproach, and one who declares straightforwardly D’var HaEmet. [The Word of Truth] ~ Tim Bet 2

The Torah is “D’var HaEmet”, and all scripture derives from it, and is faithful to it. This is how one ‘rightly divides’, or ‘straightforwardly declares’ His Word, by understanding the foundation of it, The Torah.. But, that declaration also has to come with CONDUCT becoming of a Son of God. This is where people today are failing. Our Messiah said, “Happy are those who are pure in their hearts, for they shall see Elohim.”

You are not saved yet: you are BEING saved! You are being purified. IF you remain in HIM, no matter HOW HARD it gets to be SO DIFFERENT from this world [the people in it, and it’s/their way of thinking].

We want to ENCOURAGE one another toward LOVE AND Good Works! [Ivrim 10:24] Join us! Learn! Be encouraged! Be Disciplined! Obtain your crown!
