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
  6. 6. Yâ-huwah 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.
  7. 7. 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.
  8. 8. Hag Ha-Shavuot, is the second of the three annual Hagim [Pilgrimage-Festivals] in the Hebrew Calendar and is known in English as the Feast of Weeks or Pentecost. Shavuot is also referred to in the Torah as Hag HaKatzir (Feast of Harvest)
  9. 9. Shemot 23,16 "Also the feast of Harvest, the firstfruits of your labor (that which you sow), and the Feast of Ingathering, at the turn of the year, [at the time] when you gather your produce in from the field. Feast of Harvest: Shavuoth; Feast of Ingathering: Sukkoth. Turn of the year: or the "going out", "departure", or "proceeding forth". It is actually two weeks into the beginning of the year, but the Hebraic mindset considers the whole transitional time from one year to the next as part of each. In Hebraic thought, times overlap one another rather than one stopping before another begins. It is also the end of the growing season, marked by the harvest. Produce: literally, "work" or “deeds”. Thus it depicts the reaping of the benefits or consequences of our actions. and Yom HaBikurim Day of Firstfruits Nu 28:26 . "'Now on the day of the first fruits, when you bring near a renewed grain offering to Ya-hwuah in your Feast of Shavuoth [weeks], you shall have a Sacred calling-together; you shall do no servile labor. First fruits: in this case, of the wheat harvest, because the first fruits of the barley are brought while it is still the feast of unleavened bread. It renews the cycle of grain offerings, because this is fresh grain--a great cause for rejoicing! Ya- hwuah has brought a harvest! We will not starve! He wants us to stop our regular work so we can give adequate attention to the great significance of
  10. 10. the fact that He is the one who has ensured this, not ultimately any other cause. He wants there to be nothing to distract us from sharing the joy with one another. It therefore deserves a whole day’s focus, which He aims to guarantee by prohibiting other work--and a portion is given back to Him out of gratitude so there is no shame involved in our partaking of His bounty. Then Ya-hwuah told Moshe, "Speak to the sons of Y’sra’al, and you shall inform them of the appointed times of Ya-hwuah, which you must proclaim--Sacred rehearsals. These are My appointed seasons: If the all we had of the Torah was this chapter, we would have enough to be able to draw near to Ya-huwah. Appointed times : that is, appointments He has with all of Y’Isra’al. The term means agreed-upon times. Yahuwah has fixed the times for these, for they are His, though He allows us and even requires us to participate in them. If you want to be part of His covenant, you must agree to them. And we must show up at the right time—not the most convenient day nearest to them—or we will not find Him there. But if we call one another together at the right time, we can come with the expectation that the Director will be there to meet us, because He made the appointments. The term “appointed” is even used of becoming engaged for marriage. This is exactly what Ya-hwuah intends for us, and He gave us many occasions to rehearse for the wedding. Today, without the Temple, we can only do rehearsals for the Rehearsals, yet they bring us one step closer in our training. No one can do a rehearsal on his own; he can only practice. But as we do show up for the rehearsal and gather in unity,
  11. 11. with our whole selves turned over to Him, we are indeed rehearsing for the Kingdom. After the Passover and Unleavenbread ( 7days) on the very next day we are commanded to count WaYiqra 23:15 “‘You shall count from the next day after the Sabbath [first day of the week], from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven Sabbaths shall be completed WaYiqra: 23:16 Even to the next day after the seventh Sabbath you shall number fifty days; and you shall offer a new meal offering to Ya-hwuah. Passover is the barley harvest; Shavuot ("weeks" or simply “sevens”) is the wheat harvest, so whenever barley is mentioned in Scripture, it falls during this season. Fresh: or new, i.e., from the new harvest. This time it is not barley, but wheat, which is much more refinable than barley, which remains more coarse no matter how it is sifted. These fifty days are a time to transform us into more refined, so we can more easily be mingled into a unified “loaf” for Ya-hwuah to enjoy: WaYiqra 23:17
  12. 12. You shall bring out of your habitations two loaves of bread for a wave offering made of two tenth parts of an efah of fine flour. They shall be baked with yeast, for first fruits to Ya-hwuah .Wheat flour was more costly than the barley more commonly used in ancient times. By tradition, the two tablets of stone (were brought down from Mt. Sinai on this very day of Shavuoth. They correspond with these two loaves, one representing the kingdom of Yahuwdah, to whom he came first, and the other, the "lost sheep of the House of Y’sra’al", the "other flock", who were scattered among all nations. Fine: In Second-Temple times it was sifted 13 times. Leavened: this is why they had to be a wave offering; no leaven can be offered on the altar. Leaven is often a picture of sin. Yâhuwshúa`, who was sinless, was offered first. But here, it depicts the complete permeation of the Kingdom in our lives so that we come to full maturity as His unified household. Mat. 13:33 Another parable He spoke to them: “The Reign of Ya-hwuah is similar to ferment, which a woman having taken, hid in three çe’íym (measures) [about 2 gallons + 1 pint per çe’â´h] of meal until all was fermented.” 1 Qorinthíym. 5:7 Therefore purge out the old ferment, in order that ye may be a new lump of dough, since ye are Matstsówth (“sweetness” [unfermented]). For also our Phâ´çech (Exemption [“Passover”]) is the Anointed One Who was slaughtered instead of us. —so the right kind of leaven can have its full effect. WaYiqra 23:18
  13. 13. You shall present with the bread seven lambs without blemish a year old, one young bull, and two rams. They shall be a burnt offering to Ya-hwuah, with their meal offering, and their drink offerings, even an offering made by fire, of a sweet aroma to Ya-hwuah. It does not say to burn them up, though that is what was literally done, but rather to bring near those who ascend to Ya-hwuah; thus it can also refer to the people who are brought back into the Land as the dry bones, since a person who immigrates to Y’sra’al is indeed called an "ascender". Each slaughter has its bread offering, coinciding with what we are to become-- "one bread and one body"—to supplement Yâhuwshúa`'s blood that was shed. WaYiqra 23:19 You shall offer one male goat for a sin offering, and two male lambs a year old for a slaughter of peace offerings. WaYiqra 23:20 The priest shall wave them with the bread of the first fruits for a wave offering before Ya-hwuah, with the two lambs. They shall be Set-apart to Ya-hwuah for the priest. For the priest: Who but Yâhuwshúa` is called our great high priest? And as the prince in his Kingdom, he will indeed offer the sacrifices on the festivals. WaYiqra 23:21 You shall make proclamation on the same day: there shall be a Set-apart convocation to you; you shall do no regular work. This is a statute forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.
  14. 14. WaYiqra 23:22 “ ‘When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not wholly reap into the corners of your field, neither shall you gather the gleanings of your harvest: you shall leave them for the poor, and for the foreigner. I am Ya-hwuah your Aluahiym.’” Ruth, was a "type" of the Northern Kingdom's return through our kinsman- redeemer, benefitted from this law; a way was made for her to survive, though Naomi had lost the link to her inheritance. But Boaz did more than he was required to. How large is a corner? It depends how generous one is. If this law is followed, the poor are truly cared for, and those who pass through the Land see that, in contrast to and to make amends for the evil report the ten spies gave, this Land does not devour its inhabitants, but provides bread without price and no one lacks. He wants His Land to be honored. The Land belongs to Ya-hwuah, and the more we leave, the more it takes care of the stranger, widow, or orphan. How great do you want Yâ- hwuah’s reputation to be? Mat_9:17 “Neither do they put new wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins burst, and the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But they put new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved.” Mar 2:22 “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins, otherwise the new wine bursts the wineskins, and the wine runs out, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine is to be put into fresh wineskins.”
  15. 15. Luk_5:37 “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins, otherwise the new wine shall burst the wineskins and run out, and the wineskins shall be ruined. Luk_5:39 “And no one, having drunk old wine, immediately desires new wine, for he says, ‘The old is better.’ ” In His Name Blessed be, in His name
  16. 16. 'Yâ-huwah be with you.' and they answered him, 'Yâ-huwah 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-huwah, [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-huwah, 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-huwah keiYAH nätzräya Remember me and pray for me that Yâ-huwah will be gracious unto me and be merciful unto my sins which I have sinned against him. Peace be to them that read and that hear these things and to their servants: Amein and Amein Freely ye have received, freely give A rule necessary, and of great extent. A servant in the Gospel Vineyard, though worthy of his Comfortable support while in the work. 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
  17. 17. dispenser. He who preaches to get a living, or make a fortune, is guilty of the most infamous sacrilege
