Zekeniam Y’sra’al ( teacher of Y’sra’al) Sherut haRitztzuy (the ministry of reconciliation) by whom we have now received the ( Atonement) Reconciliation of the Dvar HaRitztzuy Let this day be a day of reconciliation and regeneration [“EHYEH ASHER EHYEH”] ( HaYaH (He was), Howeh (He is), and Yihyeh (He will be). I AM Father and son are one
My Memorial for generation after generation.” Shemot 3:13-16 This is MY NAME for ever, Yâ-hwuah, Aluahiym of your father’s Abraham, Yitzchak [Isaac], and Ya’aqob [Jacob], has sent me to you. This is my name forever, and this is my memorial for generation to generation." and I appeared to Abraham, to Yitzchak, andto Ya’aqob as hashadday [the almighty]. and my name, Yahwuah, was not well known (famous) to them. The ministry of reconciliation Message of Reconciliation Torah sh’Bichtav (Written Torah) Who hath ears to hear, let him hear? “Sola Scriptura” (the Scriptures alone is authoritative for faith)
(in His Name) [Yah -hoo-Wah] is the Name of the Creator. (Yâhuwshúa`) is His Son [Al-u-heem - ALHYM] means "Mighty Ones“ or "Power" means Set-apart, Pure. (Qodesh) also means "Set-apart" Ruwach (Spirit) is the Ibry (Hebrew) name for His "Presence", pictured as the Counselor, Helper, and Advocate, the One Who "proceeds from the Father"
Tehillim 27:5 For in the day of trouble He will keep me secretly in His booth. In the covering of His Tent He will hide me. On a Rock He raises me up. is for you too! Scripture speaks of a secret place where we can simply go, be alone, be protected, pray, and hear from Yahuahshua. Knowing there is such a place is a matter of faith. Going back time and again, that's a matter of building a relationship. You need not have an advanced degree in any subject, need not have memorized Scripture from beginning to end, but instead be aware the Yâ-hwuah of Y’sra’al has a place for each Jew and Gentile who will open their minds and hearts to Him. Mt 6:5-8 When you pray, you shall not be as the role-fakers, for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Most certainly, I tell you, they have received their reward. But you, when you pray, enter into your inner chamber, and having shut your door, pray to your Father Who is in secret, and your Father Who sees in secret shall reward you openly. In praying, don’t use vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do; for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Therefore don’t be like them, don't you see that your Father knows what things you need before you ask Him
The truth in reality is visited in this secret place AND must be shared by those who will live or else ... they will perish ... in darkness. It is written Lu 11:33 “No one, when he has lit a Lamp, puts it in a cellar or under a basket, but on a stand, that those who come in may see the Light. Tehillim. 119:105 Your Word is a Lamp to my feet, and a Light (aur) for my path. The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore when your eye is good, your whole body is also full of Light; but when it is evil, your body also is full of darkness. Therefore see whether the light that is in you isn’t darkness. If therefore your whole body is full of Light, having no part dark, it shall be wholly full of Light, as when the Lamp with its bright shining gives you Light.” The menorah is the only symbol created by Yâhuwshúa` With this in mind, heart soul and strength let us study together in the Ruwach And now brothers and sisters Come out of the secret place bearing light! who see it from afar. The Secret Place, here, shines a bit of light so many can see from afar. The topics we have chosen are addressed to Jew and Gentile
together. We do this because that is what the Bible does. This opens the window to make more sense of what Scripture tells us! In the secret place is plain language, something simple to read. This is a mere starting place for deeper consideration. People often base their self-concept on their accomplishments. But our relationship with is far more important than our jobs, successes, wealth, or knowledge. We have been chosen by as his very own, and we have been called to represent him to others. Remember that your value comes from being one of 's children, not from what you can achieve. You have does, not because of what you worth because of what do.
1 Kĕpha 2:9 Now ye are a chosen tribe, a Kingdom priesthood, a pure nation, a people for an acquisition, so that ye might celebrate the manly valors of the One Who called you out of the darkness into His wonderful Light! This same descriptive title is found in Deu_7:6; Because you are a people set apart to your Aluahiym; you are the nation Yâ-hwuah your Aluahiym has chosen to be an especiallyvalued treasure out of all the nations that are on the face of the earth. The "you" here is singular; He sees us as one man. Especially-valued treasure: Hirsch, “belonging exclusively to Himself". Comparison Shemot 19:5; "'So now, as you hear, if you will [really] listen within My voice, and keep My covenant, you will become to Me a uniquely valued [and guarded] treasure above all of the [other] peoples--because all of the earth is Mine— Hear, listen, and keep: to leave out any of these will keep us from receiving the fullness of the gift He wants to give us through His instruction (Torah). Listen within: or „listen into"--hear the depths of what I am saying behind the words, the Raukh that lies behind the letter. Rashi said this means that if we hear and obey once, we
will be able to keep hearing and improve in our obedience. If a student will not listen to his teacher, how will he ever hear Yâhwuah’s voice? A uniquely valued treasure: literally, sealed up and hidden away. Others may see us as imprisoned in His box, "having to" do things not required of them, losing our rights, or being "under" the Law. But it implies being guarded to the degree that Fort Knox or a top-secret military installation is. When everything else gets stolen (and it will), Y’sra’al will not, because it is locked away in His "harem" (which in Semitic languages really has a positive meaning of being specially set apart). Everyone belongs to Yâ-hwuah, but Y’sra’al will be special to Him—on the condition that we put into the relationships what we are supposed to; it is not a one-sided promise. Do what He says, and you will be glad you did. Guard the covenant carefully, and He will show us, but we must be the first to act, because we are the less trustworthy party. Deut. 14:2 Because you are a people set apart unto Yâ-hwuah your Aluahiym Moreover, Yâ-hwuah has selected you to be a people for Himself, especially treasured above all nations that are on the earth. Deut. 26:18; Yâ-hwuah has also declared you this day to be His particular treasure of a people, as He had promised you, and [told you] to keep His commandments,
Particular treasure: has the connotation of being a special jewel locked or securely hidden away from everyone else. This emphasizes the holiness for which He had designed this "uncommon" people, who are not to be considered just another of the nations. Kĕpha calls us living stones that are precious to Yâhwuah We keep His commandments not just for our own sake, but for the benefit of all Y’sra’al. Mal’achi 3:17 And Yâ-hwuah [the Master] of Armies says, “They will belong to Me for the day when I will prepare My specially-treasured possession, and I will have compassion on them as a man has compassion on his son who works for him [like a servant]. Have compassion: could mean to take pity or spare, but here the “passion” aspect of compassion (the strong feeling) is emphasized. Those who give their treasures to the storehouse of His people will themselves become the treasure! Mal’achi 3:18. “When you come back, you will see [a distinction] between what is right and what is wrong, and between those who serve Yâ-hwuah and those who do not serve Him. What is right and what is wrong: or, the righteous and the wicked. Mal’achi 3:14
“You have said, ‘Serving Aluahiym is worthless!’ and, ‘What benefit do we [receive] for having guarded what He wants guarded and for having walked mournfully from the presence of Yâ-hwuah [the Master] of Armies? Built up: or, established, made permanent. They have tested the limits to see how far they could go. His long-lasting mercy makes them think they will get away with these things forever. Rom. 2:4 Or do you despise the wealth of His kindness, His toleration, and His immense hesitancy to avenge, instead of recognizing that His kindness is meant to lead you to [change your ways and] return to Him? Hesitancy: Aramaic, the place He gives you. Anyone who thinks he can be considered justified before Aluahiym without accepting His provision of amnesty through the HaMashiyach is fooling himself about how righteous he really is. We each have our own ways of doing this. Christians claim all is forgiven and the Torah is obsolete. The rabbis think Yâ-hwuah has abdicated His authority and left it in their hands (according to the Talmud). Mal’achi 3:15 “‘--to the point that we now call the insolent “progressive”! Not only are those who deal wickedly built up; they have even put Yâ-hwuah to the test and gotten away with it!’”
Modern Yahuwdah sees the miracles Yâ-hwuah has done to protect them, and chalks it up to the superiority of their armed forces. As we stop Raukhualizing everything and come back to the literal, physical commands as well as what they symbolize, the distinction is quite simply defined: serving Yâ-hwuah vs. serving self. Others may be allowed to slide with such practices—elsewhere in the world—for a time, but not you, and not here in My Land! You must be kept cleaner than the rest, polished better than others, and not exposed to filth like some other vessels He had made. for only those who go the distance can be Yâ-hwuah’s special treasure. Deu_10:15; "[but] only to your ancestors did He become attached [in order] to befriend them, and He selected their descendants to follow them--you of all peoples--just as [is the case] today. While He may work through other peoples as He chooses, Y’sra’al is the only nation He promised to make His perpetual treasure. Yeshayahu 43:20-21. . "The living things of the field will honor Me--dragons and ostriches--because I have provided water in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, in order to let My people, My chosen ones, [have something to] drink.
Dragons and ostriches (literally "daughters of the owl") are unclean animals. Yâ-hwuah derives honor from them as well, even if they are not in agreement. Shemot. 14:18 Then the Egyptians will know that I am Yâ-hwuah by My being honored through Pharaoh, his chariotry, and his cavalry." If we see too many previews, going to the movie will be a waste of time. We need to embrace the fact that we do not know the details ahead of time, but there is one unknown that we never should move toward: We must never go after Aluahiym that our (ancient) fathers have not known. Y’sra’al has only ever known one Aluahiym; do not worship anything else. He is the one factor that makes the sure it is safe to walk into the unknown. The more we know Him, the less we need to know what is ahead. What we need to know is that it is Yâhwuah that is bringing us and that He is with us. Any other source of security is likely to tempt us to worship it. He keeps us on the edge so we will not cling to the wrong things. But what husband would not be kind to a woman who put his will above her own?
In order to let My people drink: In the process of providing His Word to the people of Y’sra’al in exile, Yâ-hwuah also let the "dogs" receive some "crumbs" from the table. Mat. 15:26 So he responded by saying, "It is not appropriate to take away the children's bread away and throw it to puppies!" The HaMashiyach insulted someone so severely simply because she was a Gentile, and maybe especially because she was a Kanaanite, from a people who were supposed to have been annihilated by Y’sra’al over a thousand years before. Mat. 15:27. So she said, "For sure, master, but even the puppies eat from the crumbs that fall from their master's table!" Their master's table: She yielded to the fact that being a dog at his table was better than being a queen anywhere else. Unlike the kings in Tehillim 2, Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot a vain thing? The sovereigns of the earth take a stand, and the rulers take counsel together, against Yâ-hwuah, and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us break their bonds apart, and cast their cords from us.” He Who sits in ha'shemaya will laugh. Yâ-hwuah will have them in derision. Then He will speak to them in His anger, and terrify them in His wrath :( Great Day of Yâ-hwuah) “But I have set My Sovereign on Tsiyown, My Set-apart Mountain.” I will tell of the decree. Yâhwuah said to Me, “You are My Son. Today I have become Your
Father. Ask of Me, and I will give the nations for Your inheritance, the uttermost parts of the earth for Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron. You shall dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.” Now therefore be wise, you sovereigns. Be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve Yâ-hwuah with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way, for His wrath (of the Lamb) will soon be kindled. She did not desire to break the king of Y’sra’al bond over her. She was not there just to ask a favor, then spit on it. She proved she would submit to his authority, and that she is a student worth teaching. This is what turned the conversation in a different direction: This is one of the main reasons He scattered our ancestors. But during the Kingdom as well there will be people who can be tempted to rebel against Yâhuwshúa`, the King, but until haSatan is loosed they will know they do not stand to overcome His rod of iron, so they will keep their mouths shut and at least appear wise. Mishle 17:28 Even a fool, when he keeps silent, is counted wise. When he shuts his lips, he is thought to be discerning.
Yeshayahu 43:21. "This people, whom I fashioned for Myself, will recount My praiseworthy acts! 1 Kĕpha 1:2; According to the prearrangement of Yâ-hwuah the Father, through the setting apart of the Raukh into obedient hearing and [through the] sprinkling of the blood of Yâhuwshúa HaMashiyach: May empowering favors and shalom be increased to you. Prearrangement: at Mt. Sinai, where He included all of the descendants of those who had left the covenant in the meantime, and His promises through the Torah and prophets to bring them back into their position at designated times (after 780 years and 2,730 years—the former being at the time just before Kĕpha was writing, and the latter being our own day). Sprinkling: as is to be done with blood from sin offerings Lev 4:6, "‘and the priest must dip his finger in the blood, and spatter the front of the veil of the sanctuary with the blood seven times before the face of Yâ-hwuah
Seven times: a picture of completion. Spatter: flicking the fingers with pressure that causes the blood to spurt. He was still in front of the tent (v. 7), so this is the outer veil. Lev 5:9 And he shall spatter [some] of the blood of the sin offering on the wall of the altar, and what remains of the blood must be drained out at the base of the altar; it is a sin offering. upon those being cleansed from leprosy Lev 14:7 "Then he shall spatter it seven times on the one who is to be ritually purified from his leprosy, then he shall pronounce him ritually clean, and let the living bird loose into the open field. David prays, "Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me and I shall be whiter than snow." (Tehillim 51) In this context (which has strong Passover overtones after David took a "single lamb" that had been raised in the household of another and reaped the Passover plague of the death of his firstborn by Uriah's wife), he asks Yâ-hwuah to cleanse his innermost, hidden parts--again, as a dove's feather is used to sweep the hidden leaven onto a cedar wood spoon at Passover. Let loose: like the scapegoat at Yom Kippur, but possibly for a different purpose. Yâhuwshúa` sent his “Body” into the world (which he said the field represents--Matt. 13:38), since Efrayim was scattered there, intermingled with the nations and needing to be brought back. The pronunciation here is the completion only of the first “wash cycle”, just as when Yâhuwshúa`
healed some lepers, he told them to go and follow the rest of these instructions and offer the gifts Moshe prescribed as a testimony. (Mat. 8) He could heal, but it was not his job to pronounce someone clean; only the priest can do that. Instead he gave the command, “Be cleansed.” Only the one in the process of healing can complete that task. The former metzora is now “clean” on one level, but being healed is not enough; there is still a process to undergo before he can be fully integrated back into the community, which is the real goal of his cleansing. Lev 14:57 "To teach [you] when it is ritually defiled and when it is ritually pure, this is the instruction regarding tzara'ath." When: literally, the day of… We were born in a day of uncleanness (selfishness), but we are entering a new day in which healing is possible-- the Sabbath millennium, the Kingdom that brings selfishness to a halt with a rod of iron. The order of the wording is important: we must know what to avoid before we learn what to embrace. If we identify what is selfish in ourselves, we can learn what is unselfish by doing the opposite. the blood of the firstborn of clean animals Lev 18:17 "'You shall not uncover the nakedness of [both] a woman and her daughter; you shall not take her son's daughter or her daughter's
daughter in order to uncover their nakedness; they are her close relatives. This is offensive! and the blood of the red heifer to set apart the priesthood Lev 19:4 ‘Do not turn yourself to the idols, nor shall you make cast-molten gods for yourselves; I am Yâ-hwuah your Aluahiym. All of these were in various ways pictures of what Yâhuwshúa` accomplished in cleansing us individually and corporately from sin and selfishness, and to make us a house fit for His dwelling once again. Shalom: Total well-being and completeness. Tehillim 22:30, Posterity shall serve Him. Future generations shall be told about Yâ-hwuah. Tehillim 33:12, Blessed is the nation whose Aluahiym is Yâ-hwuah, the people whom He has chosen for His Own inheritance. Tehillim 73:15; If I had said, “I will speak thus;” behold, I would have betrayed the generation of your children. Yeshayahu 41:8, But you, O Y’sra’al, are My servant; Yaaqov, whom I have chosen, the descendants of Avraham, My dear friend, Yeshayahu 44:1
So now, listen, Yaaqov, My servant, and Y’sra’al (I have chosen him)! This title is found in Shemot 19:6; "'and you shall become for Me a kingdom of priests, a separated nation.' These are the words which you must speak to the descendants of Ysra’al." A separated nation: in a class of its own. The very idea calls for judgment, because to separate we must discriminate between different things. We cannot just accept anything. This is not popular today, but if we are not comfortable with it, we must become so by practicing it! To be ready to hear from Yâ-hwuah, we must set things apart in our minds as well. Those who refuse to judge or be judged can by definition never be set apart. As He prepares to bring her into the covenant of betrothal at Sinai, He wants her to have no doubt that He loves no one but her. He came to Egypt to get her, but did not stay; there were other Aluahiym in place there. He fought them for her, but has now carried her to His own home. Priests: to help others approach Yâ-hwuah. Y’sra’al had its own priests (literally, officiators), but as Yâ-hwuah’s firstborn, the entire people was called to be a priest, or light to the nations. This is not a prophecy or a promise, but a command. It will not just fall into place if we do not make it a reality. Yeshayahu 61:6;
But you will be called priests of Yâ-hwuah, and spoken of as those who wait on our Aluahiym. You will consume the wealth of nations, and enter into the reputation they [once boasted of]. Priests of Yâ-hwuah: in comparison to the other nations, all Y’sra’alites are to be priests. In fact, Ysra’al is called "a kingdom of priests". Enter into: with the sense of exchanging places. Enter into the reputation: LXX, be admired because of their wealth; Aramaic, in their glory you shall be indulged. Yeshayahu 66:21. And I will even select some of them to be priests and as Levites," says Yâ-hwuah, Levites were once substituted for the firstborn of other families of Y’sra’al, so if the firstborn are better qualified to serve, having studied more intently and demonstrated their love for Yâ-hwuah, they may be restored to that right. This probably correlates with the 144,000 (12,000 from each tribe of Y’sra’al, except that Dan is replaced by the double-portion of Yoseyf, Rev. 7). As Y’sra’al was chosen to bring the knowledge of Yâ-hwuah to the world, now the assembly in the wilderness is called to inform and bring needy, sinful people to Yâ-hwuah. Shemot 19:5-6; "'So now, as you hear, if you will [really] listen within My voice, and keep My covenant, you will become to Me a uniquely valued [and guarded] treasure above all of the [other] peoples--because all of the earth is Mine-- "'and you shall become for Me a kingdom of
priests, a separated nation.' These are the words which you must speak to the descendants of Y’sra’al." Disclosure 1:6, And made us a kingdom of priests to the mighty One, even His Father: for Him is the honor and the power for the ages of the ages! ’Âmë´n (Certainly)! Disclosure 5:10, 1And You did make them kings and priests to our mighty One, and they shall reign over the earth!” Disclosure 20:6 Happy and pure is the one having part in the first resurrection! Over these, the second death holds no authority. Instead, they shall be priests of the mighty One and of the Anointed, and shall reign with Him a thousand years! Y’sra’al was called to be uniquely Sacred and thus reveal a Sacred Yâhwuah Mat 5:48; "On the contrary, you [have to] be perfect, just as your father in Heaven is perfect." Perfect: Heb., whole-hearted, impartial, treating everyone according to their need, no matter how they have treated you. In
context, "fully mature, lacking nothing, and of the utmost integrity"--the "fullest meaning" of the Torah v. 17; "Do not imagine that I have come to abolish the Torah or the prophets; I have not come to destroy them, but to fulfill them. I have come: a Hebrew idiom for "my purpose is". To give them their fullest meaning: as seen by the rest of this discourse, where He expands on the common interpretations of his day to get to the heart of the matter. "Fulfill" (or complete) was also a technical term used by rabbis to describe a correct interpretation, which "established" it. He reveals what Yâ-hwuah really intended by the commandments by setting forth specific cases--a common rabbinic method. In MattithYahuw he reiterates and amplifies on each of the Ten Commandments. Yaaqov 2:10 because whoever might observe the entire Torah, yet stumble in one [point], would have become liable [to judgment] in regard to the whole [thing]. Every part of the Torah is intertwined with the rest, and cannot be dissected without doing violence to the whole. We cannot pick and choose; if we miss the target at all, even by just a little, we have missed it as much as one who does not even come close to hitting it:
1 Yoch. 3:9 Everyone having been procreated from Yâ-hwuah does not perform sin, because His Seed stays within him; and he is not willing to sin, because he has been procreated from Yâ-hwuah. 1 Kepha 1:15-16 but rather, just as the One who is calling you is set apart, you too [need to] be set apart in every [aspect of your] conduct, since it has been written, “Become set apart, because I am set apart.” 'Because I am Yâ-hwuah your Aluahiym, and you have set yourselves apart and become Sacred since I am Sacred. Thus you shall not defile yourselves by any swarming thing that creeps on the earth, Swarming thing: Those who are set apart for Yâ-hwuah’s purposes have no reason to follow the masses, letting popular fads determine how they live.
Leviticus: 11:45. "'because I am Yâ-hwuah your Aluahiym, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt to become an Aluahiym to you. Therefore, you shall be in a separate category, since I am in a separate category. The kosher laws are not ultimately about the animals or even diet as such, but about who Yâ-hwuah is and who we are. Hirsch points out that here Yâ-hwuah links freedom (summarized by the liberation from Egypt) with holiness. To the “fleshly-minded”, holiness seems like legalism or bondage, but it is really a gift that brings us freedom from the bondage to our sensuous desires, which lead us to many illogical, degrading, harmful, or just worthless pursuits if not kept within the confines of the proper channels laid out by the Torah. A train is only free when on its tracks, i.e., when doing what it was designed to do. Man is designed for friendship with Yâ-hwuah, and this means separation from all that tends away from Him. Leviticus: 11:46. "'This [has been] the instruction regarding the animals, the fowl, and every living creature that moves through the waters, and every creature that swarms on the earth, Leviticus: 11:47. "'in order to make a distinction between the impure and the pure, and between the living thing that may be eaten and the living thing that may not be eaten.'" Eaten: or consumed. Food is a picture of what we take into ourselves Raukhually.
This is the heart of the matter. we must become discriminatory in what we partake of. We make distinctions in how we eat so we will be able to discriminate in the more important matters as well. We should certainly tolerate one another within Y’sra’al, especially where there is room for varying interpretations of how to walk out the Torah and both are rightly-motivated. But tolerance of ideas opposed to Torah is one of these “creeping things” that sneaks into our minds. Living thing: or simply, "the life". Most “cares of this life” are not about the Kingdom, unless we are part of a community, so that is where we must draw the lines. The ancient Hebrews were careful about whom they let into their tents (by extension, places of learning). Yâ-hwuah’s House must remain Sacred and pure; while outsiders may come in, He does not lower the standard. They must be raised up, or the whole house will be lowered and the teaching will be lost. This has taken place as the church let pagans come in without changing their ways, but only the labels. Now it is so diluted it is not recognizably the same structure as what Yâhuwshúa `actually came to build. People constantly joined the community of Y’sra’al, but in general Y’sra’al did not go out looking for recruits. There were lost sheep of the House of Y’sra’al (the dispersed and "lost" northern tribes) who had to be recalled from all over the world because of Yâ-hwuah’s promises to provide a new covenant for the sake of their forefathers, and "whosoever will may come". But we are not trying to fill seats. We must even distinguish between humanly-invented morality and the Torah for which it is a cheap substitute. “Rejection” must again be seen as a
positive thing, for if you do not reject certain things, you are no better than a pig. We cannot take into ourselves every opinion that comes our way, especially when it is gossip. We must make the same distinctions Yâ-hwuah makes. it is related directly to learning to make distinctions between right and wrong by keeping ourselves from unclean foods (so Kĕpha clearly knew that his vision had nothing to do with actually eating unclean animals). Leviticus 19:2, Speak to the whole congregation of the descendants of Y’sra’al, and tell them, ‘You shall be sacred [qedoshim], because I, Yâhwuahyour Aluahiym, am sacred.' This message is so important that the whole nation must gather to hear it so they cannot use the excuse that they have not heard it. Yâ-hwuah may not trust it to trickle down effectively in this case. "Sacred" simply means "set apart" and "separate" from all that is not Y’sra’al--in a category of its own. This more than anything else makes Y’sra’al hated by so many and loved by others who are in tune with Yâ-hwuah What Yâ-hwuah uses to make Y’sra’al separate is the Torah, which also defines for us who Yâ-hwuah is—how He wants us to know Him. It defines the nature of the relationships we are to have with one another—not just negatively, as seen in the last chapter, but positively, as seen in this one. Wherever our actions conflict with it, we are in sin (“missing the target”). At first,
it seems like we have hit the “bull’s eye” if we have rid ourselves of the obvious, big sins. But as we mature and move closer to Yâhwuah, our vision is more refined and we can see the target better. Then we realize how far from the “bull’s eye” we really are. Sacredness means constantly separating ourselves from more and more habits, attitudes, and thought patterns, because as we walk further upward, the bar keeps being raised. The definition of “sin” tightens its focus to meaning anything that disrupts the life of the community. Now we may have to separate ourselves from association with others who may have seemed harmless before, but whom we now realize “just don’t get it”. As our knowledge increases, we become more and more of a mystery to those whose categories are defined by other standards. Yet the more we walk in the Torah, the less foreign and the more natural and beautiful it will be to us. But a wall of separation not only sets us apart from what is outside; it sets us apart unto what is inside. Each time it says "you" here, it is plural. Ironically, it is impossible to be truly separate in isolation! We are not holy for the sake of separateness in itself, nor are we truly separate until we are all together in our set-apartness. More important than being separated from all other loyalties, we are separated unto Yâ-hwuah and His flock; without that element, it is just an exercise in self-righteous pride. We screen out other things so we can concentrate our commitment on Him and His Kingdom’s priorities. The Torah is the eyeglasses that define it more sharply for us. We must be generous, but not as our own hearts define it, but as Yâ-hwuah does. The Hebrew words will show us: For example, the word for “thank” means “to stretch out one’s hands”. It means demonstrating our thankfulness by our actions, not just our words. What follows is a description of how we must
live if we wish to remain in Yâ-hwuah’s Land and a part of His people. Otherwise, it is Y’sra’al from which we will end up being separated. (Deut. 28:47ff) The world will take us hostage if we do not strengthen one another with gladness of heart. Maturing as a Body is a weeding process that sifts out and throws away more than we keep. We must define what is outside, and leave it there. Loyalty to things, people, or ideas on the outside—even biological relatives--will separate us from our true brothers. (Mat. 12:48ff) But we are always surrounded by the world; how do we remain set apart? We carry the walls with us. If we remain defined by the Torah, we remain holy, no matter where we are. Yâ-hwuah has some degree of attachment to everything He has created, but He is not close to all things or all people. He chose Y’sra’al, and specifically Yerushalayim, in a way in which He never chose Washington, D.C. or Rome. While we have a responsibility to the whole world, the channel by which we do so has a much narrower scope. Rabbi Noson Weisz summarizes this chapter by saying that we have to be detached from the natural urges of the last chapter, not to do away with them completely, for then there would be no next generation to pass the responsibility on to, but so that we can give them a meaning that will outlast us. This requires making choices and setting definite boundaries so that while we partake in the natural world, we can make it a tool toward a deeper life that can bring the world to its fullest potential by joining body to Raukh and setting apart unto Yâ-hwuah more aspects of life on earth. it is connected with keeping the Sabbath, respect for parents, abstaining from idolatry, temple sacrifice, leaving something for the poor to glean, and thinking of our neighbors’ welfare.
Leviticus 20:7 "‘So you must set yourselves apart, and be set apart, because I am Yâ-hwuahyour Aluahiym, This clearly does not occur by magic. Once He has “washed us”, we must continue to wash ourselves. We who have seen the results of not being set apart must be especially committed to being set apart. Leviticus 20:8. "‘and you shall observe My statutes and carry them out; I am Yâhwuahwho is setting you apart. He sets us apart, but we must enter the open door He gives us, or what He does for us will still lack results. His orders are not a smorgasbord from which we can pick and choose; we must “eat” all that He “puts on our plate” to be strong in every area, for He knows what is best for us, even when it does not all “taste” pleasant. it refers to all of Yâ-hwuah’s statutes. So when Kĕpha used this quote as shorthand, it would make the reader of his day recall all of these commands and know that this is how Yâ-hwuah expects us to express the holiness He requires of us. to a fallen world. Tehillim 106:5;
that I may see the prosperity of Your chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of Your nation ,to make my boast with Your inheritance. Yeshayahu_26:2; Open [the] gates, so a righteous nation that keeps faith may enter!" A righteous nation: Rabbinical teaching identifies this as the "lost tribes" of the Northern Kingdom--once they again constitute a nation. That is the task for today. Keeps faith: or "gives heed to the truth", "treasures up faithfulness", "protects trust". We guard the faith by laying down our lives for one another. To be ready to go to war, one must first be able to trust the one who will be beside him in the foxhole. We must thus become trustworthy to one another. Yâhuwchânâ´n 17:19; And for them I dedicate My Life [soul], in order that they may be purified by the Truth. 1 Qorinthíym 3:17; If anyone ruins the temple building of Yâ-hwuah, Yâ-hwuah shall ruin this one! For the temple building of Yâ-hwuah is pure, which ones ye are. 2 Ti 1:9 Who has delivered us [meaning of Yâhuwshúa`], and of Who has called us into the calling of the pure, not according to our works – rather according to His own purpose and favor, which is granted to us within the Anointed Yâhuwshúa` since before the ages of time,
This same descriptive title is found in Deu_4:20 But Yâ-hwuah has selected you, and brought you out from the crucible of iron--from Egypt--to become His own--for the purpose of being a people [that are His own] prized possession, just as [is the case] today." Any wood placed into a furnace for smelting iron would be consumed immediately. Egypt completely used them up, while feeding them—like pack animals. Even the products forged of iron there—chariots—were used to kill them. Now they were going to a place that would serve them rather than consuming them. Nothing in the Tabernacle was made of iron; Yâ-hwuah had no use for it at this point. Prized possession: How awesome! Why throw away such a rare privilege and settle for something that the nations all stoop to--nations that He considered a mere drop in the bucket in comparison (Yeshayahu/Isaiah 40:15)? This passage speaks of the assembly as Raukhually Y’sra’al Gal_6:16
And as many as shall follow this Way, peace and mercy shall be upon them, even upon Yâ-hwuah’s Yisrâ’Ä´l! These OT titles for the people of Yâ-hwuah are now applied to the NT Body of Yâhuwshúa` Rom_2:28-29 : For a Yâhuwthíy is not he who is one in appearance, neither is Circumcision that which is visibly made in the flesh Rather, he who is a Yâhuwthíy covertly is a Yâhuwthíy, and the circumcision of the heart is the Circumcision: by breath, not by letter; whose profession is not from men, rather, from Yâ-hwuah! Gal_3:29; And if ye are of the Anointed, then ye are of the Seed of ’Avrâhâ´m and heirs in the promise! Let your faith casted upon the living waters Eph_2:11 to Eph_3:13; Wherefore remember that ye were once, according to the flesh, the Gowyím (heathen masses), those who are called “Uncircumcision” by the ones in the flesh, called “Circumcision” made by human hands –And that ye, at that time, were apart from the Anointed, nonparticipants of the community of Yisrâ’Ä´l, and aliens to the covenant of the promise: not having a hope, and without a mighty
one in the world! But now within Yâhuwshúa` the Anointed, ye, those who once were “far” are become “near” by the blood of the Anointed! [references to Yshá`Yâhuw 57: 17-19] completeness)”, Who made them both one, and “loosed the hedge” (did away with the wall ) which had partitioned their midst, And when He rendered the enmity idle by His flesh: even the Law of the commandments by His Law [To the Romans 7: 6], that He might create of the two within Himself, into one new Human – He made shâlówm (peace, reconciliation, completeness) So He might reconcile those both in one Body to the mighty One, even though the gallows cross, when He had slain the enmity by it; And when He came, He announced the glad tidings: “‘…Shâlówm (peace, reconciliation, completeness) is for the far ones, and shâlówm (peace, reconciliation, completeness) is for the near,’ says Yâ-hwuah, ‘So I shall cure him.’” [Yshá`Yâhuw 57: 19] Because through Him we, both of those, have the access in one spirit to the Father. So then ye are no longer foreigners and alien residents, rather sons of the same city of the pure ones, and sons of the house of the mighty One [Uw-Vnë´y Bä´yth-’Äl],
And ye are being built up upon the foundation of the delegates and predicators, Yâhuwshúa` the Anointed Himself being the Chief Cornerstone, [Tehillim 118: 22 ] Within Whom the whole building is constructed and grows into a pure Temple-building in Yâ-hwuah, By Whom ye also are being constructed, for a habitation of the mighty Ones by the Roach. For this cause, I Páulus, am a prisoner because of the Anointed Yâhuwshúa` for the sake of you heathen masses ,If indeed ye heard of the administration of the favor of Yâ-hwuah which was given to me for you That, by a disclosure, He made the secret known to me [To the Romans 11: 25], according as I wrote briefly before, Towards which ye are able, reading it, to perceive my understanding that is about the secret of the Anointed, Which in other generations was not made known to the sons of ’Âthâ´m, as it has been disclosed to His pure delegates and predicators by the spirit: That the heathen masses are to be co-heirs and co-participants of His body, and of His promise to the Anointed, through the glad tidings of which I became attendant, according to the gift of the favor of Yâ-hwuah granted to me, according to the working of His Force. For me, for the one less than the least of all pure ones was this favor granted: to announce the glad tidings to the heathen masses – the unsearchable riches of the Anointed, And to enlighten all how to fellowship in the secret , which has been hidden from the ages within Yâ-hwuah, Who created all things,
[access to wisdom 1: 17] In order that through the Convocation, the multivariate wisdom of Yâ-hwéh might now be made known to the chiefs and to the authorities in the higher heavens According to the Proposition of the Ages [1: 1-14], which He has performed within the Anointed Yâhuwshúa` our Sovereign; In Whom we maintain all outspokenness, and the reliable access [to the unsearchable treasures of wisdom of Yâ-hwuah], through the trusting of Him. Affectionate love strengthens and lets us grow in Him Wherefore, I ask to not weaken during the oppression against me concerning you, which is your honor. In some ways the assembly has replaced Y’sra’al, as in the world mission mandate the excellencies of Him" The purpose of Yâ-hwuah's people is to witness to the greatness of the one true creator/redeemer Yâ-hwuah! They are chosen and equipped to live and speak the gospel.
It is easy to lay aside malice, guile and evil speaking, when we are constantly feeding on the unadulterated milk of Raukhually truth. If you have tasted of the grace of Yâhuwshúa`, you will not want to sip of the wine of Sodom. Drink, O beloved, eat and drink abundantly, that we may grow, casting aside sinful and childish things.. As we touch the Living Stone we live, and we touch others who are touching Him, and so a temple begins to grow up. Then we become a Sacred priesthood in the temple, and finally the sacrifices which are offered within its precincts. If Yâhuwshúa`, is not that Living Stone for you, He will be your undoing. All that Yâ-hwuah said of His ancient people may be realized by us in and through Yâhuwshúa`,. Thus songs of praise are ever ascending to Him who has called us into His light. Evil-speaking is a sign of malice and guile in the heart; and hinders our profiting by the word of Yâhwuah. A new life needs suitable food. Infants desire milk, and make the best endeavors for it which they are able to do; such must be a Yâhuwshúa believers desires after the word of Yâ-hwuah. Our Lord Yâhuwshúa` Yâhuwshúa`, is very merciful to us miserable sinners; and he has a fullness of grace. But even the best of Yâhwuah's servants, in this life, have only a taste of the consolations of Yâ-hwuah. Yâhuwshúa`, is called a Stone, to teach his servants that he is their protection and security, the foundation on which they are built. He is precious in the excellence of his nature, the dignity of his office, and the glory of his services. All true believers are a Sacred priesthood; sacred to Yâ-hwuah, serviceable to others, endowed with heavenly gifts and graces. But the most Raukhually sacrifices of the best in prayer and praise are not acceptable, except through Yâhuwshúa` Yâhuwshúa`,. Yâhuwshúa`, is the chief
Corner-stone, that unites the whole number of believers into one everlasting temple, and bears the weight of the whole fabric. Elected, or chosen, for a foundation that is everlasting. Precious beyond compare, by all that can give worth. To be built on Yâhuwshúa`, means, to believe in him; but in this many deceive themselves, they consider not what it is, nor the necessity of it, to partake of the salvation he has wrought. Though the frame of the world were falling to pieces, that man who is built on this foundation may hear it without fear. He shall not be confounded. The believing soul makes haste to Yâhuwshúa`,, but it never finds cause to hasten from him. All true Yâhuwshúa`,”followers of “THE WAY” are a chosen generation; they make one family, a people distinct from the world: of another Raukh, principle, and practice; which they could never be, if they were not chosen in Yâhuwshúa`, to be such, and sanctified by his Raukh. Their first state is a state of gross darkness, but they are called out of darkness into a state of joy, pleasure, and prosperity; that they should show forth the praises of the Lord by their profession of his truth, and their good conduct. How vast their obligations to Him who has made them his people, and has shown mercy to them! To be without this mercy is a woeful state, though a man have all worldly enjoyments. And there is nothing that so kindly works repentance, as right thoughts of the mercy and love of Yâ-hwuah. Let us not dare to abuse and affront the free grace of Yâ-hwuah, if we mean to be saved by it; but let all who would be found among those who obtain mercy, walk as his people. The Scripture also speaks to the challenge of self-image. It declares that our basic problem with a poor self-image is Raukhually. Kepha speaks very specifically about the need. Although he does not label it as "self-image," he teaches that the solution to enjoying an
adequate self-image is in living a life that is authentic in order for the communication of self to be adequate. That is exactly what Kepha is saying about self-image. We cannot create a self-image which does not authentically communicate what we really are or what our lifestyle actually is. We must communicate the real person and the actual lifestyle. If the self-image is to be good, the life and the lifestyle must be good. Anything less than that would be deception and hypocrisy. Kepha reveals four specific characteristics of Yâhuwshúa`, life that should be lived and appreciated. In turn, they will make major positive contributions to our lifestyle. In His Name Blessed be, in His name
'Ya-hwuah be with you.' and they answered him, 'Ya-hwuah bless you.' " Be not blind to the truth And, hinnei, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Yâhuwshúa` passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Yâ-hwuah, [thou] Ben David. An Yâhuwshúa` stood still, and called them, and said, what will ye that I shall do unto you they say unto Him, Yâ-hwuah, that our eyes may be opened. So Yâhuwshúa` had compassion [on them], and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him. His servant and yours shalowm in Righteousness by the GRACE of Yâ-hwuah keiYAH nätzräya Remember me and pray for me that Yâ-hwuah will be gracious unto me and be merciful unto my sins which I have sinned against him.

Should never preach for hire, or make a secular traffic of the Ruwach (spiritual work): what a scandal is it for a man to traffic with gifts which he pretends, at least, to have received from the Ruwach HaQodesh, of which he is not the master, but the dispenser. He who preaches to get a living, or make a fortune, is guilty of the most infamous sacrilege
