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’ISCHRa’AL has a place for each Jew
and Gentile who will open their minds and hearts to Him.
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
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
“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.
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
With this in mind, heart soul and strength let us study together in the

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
In the secret place is plain language, something simple to read. This is a
mere starting place for deeper consideration.

You, nor is there any Rock like our Aluahiym.
In the same category as: literally, set apart like; i.e., He is in a class of
His own. None but you: or, other than you there is none. Rock: an idiom
for strength and security.

ekklesia does not mean “church”, but rather “assembly” or
“congregation.” Ekklesia is made up of two smaller words
(Strong’s #1537, ek),
(Strong’s #2564, kaleo),
Therefore, the word ekklesia literally means, “called out” (or when used
with the definite article, (“the called out ones”). Biblically, ekklesia does
not mean a building or a religious institution or organization.

Ekklesia to translate the Hebrew word lhq (qahal), usually translated
“congregation” or “assembly” in the KJV. Qahal does not mean a building
or a religious institution or organization either.
Ekklesia does not mean church? A brief survey of the early English
translations will provide some background. Tyndale, who translated the
first NT printed into English (1525-26), did not use the word “church”;
he used the word “congregation.” He did use the word “churches”,
however, but only once – in

the Tsuwr (massive Rock)
ts r ts r
Meaning: 1) rock, cliff
1a) rocky wall, cliff
1b) rock (with flat surface)
1c) block of stone, boulder
1d) rock (specific)
1e) rock (of God)
1f) rock (of heathen gods) n pr dei
properly a cliff (or sharp rock, as compressed); generally a rock or
boulder; figuratively a refuge; also an edge (as precipitous): - edge, X
(mighty) God (one), rock, X sharp, stone, X strength, X strong.
A primitive root; to cramp, that is, confine (in many applications, literally
and figuratively, formative or hostile): - adversary, assault, beset,
besiege, bind (up), cast, distress, fashion, fortify, inclose, lay siege, put
up in bags.
This is based on the Greek translation, which makes this distinction,
though existent `Ivríyth (Hebrew) texts repeat Këph in the feminine.
There are numerous Tenákh references which have Yâ-hwuah referred
to as our Tsuwr, and many scribes have apparently censored that this
term be applied to Yâhuwshúa`.
Behold, I will stand before you there on the Rock in Choreb. You shall
strike the Rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may
drink.” Moshah did so in the sight of the elders of Ysra'al.
Choreb: the site of Mt. Sinai, and probably less than a day's journey from
R'fidim, which was only a place to stop long enough to catch their
breath, not settle in. Sinai was where they were meant to camp for a
longer time, since it was where He had promised to meet them again.
So the water source was already there awaiting them, and Moshe had to
precede them since they were too impatient to put up with the
Uncertainty for even a short period of time. The rock: Moshe, who had
shepherded flocks there for forty years, must have known of a specific
rock that He was speaking about, and indeed there is, within sight of
Jabal al-Lawz (the probable location of Mt. Sinai in Arabia), a six-storey
rock that is split down the middle and shows evidence of water having
flowed out from the cleft. Paul calls it a

Rock that followed them, and the Rock was HaMaSHiYaCH
Note that it wasn’t real or physical also, but that it had a deeper
meaning, being symbolic of the HaMaSHiYaCH, who makes YHWH’s word
accessible to us who were exiled. Only the elders saw this miracle, so
the rest of the congregation would have to accept their testimony.

Deuteronomy 32: 4
The Rock, His work is perfect, for all His Ways are justice: an Aluahiym
of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and right is He.
The attributes listed are related to the covenant. Faithfulness: or
steadfastness; He is trustworthy. How could you want to trade Him for
one of those capricious pagan deities? Without crookedness: Evil is not
what is in obvious opposition to righteousness, but what distorts it,
changing it a minor increment at a time, which is much harder to notice.
This is why it is so tricky, because it looks almost like the real thing—the
very thing counterfeiters always count on. Thus while Moshe is calling
out the attributes of the king with whom the covenant is being made, he
is also contrasting YHWH with the people He is entering into covenant
Deuteronomy 32:15 (latter part)
Then he forsook Aluah (first use in Scripture - unless Iyowb came first)
Who made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his deliverance.
Yeshurun: the upright, straight, pleasing one--Yâ-hwuah’s "pet name"
for Israel. It is only used when the whole nation is in unity. He was
healthy and well-provided for, but became spoiled, thinking we deserved
these blessings, so he stopped saying “thank you” and rebelled. He
thought he no longer needed Yâ-hwuah. Yet why, then, would we think
we had a need for the lesser Aluahiym who could not even do as much
for us? Only because they were exotic and more exciting to the flesh.
So in contrast, it was not always better for us when we had the best.
When we were needy in the wilderness, we still had Yâ-hwuah , and
things went very well. There was a unity that did not exist after we
entered the Land and were separated out by tribes. Should we have
asked Yâ-hwuah not to disband the united camp?
Of the Rock Who became your Father, you are unmindful, and have
forgotten Al Who gave you birth.
Avraham is also called the “rock from which we were hewn.”
Listen to Me, O pursuers of correctness – seekers of Yâ-hwuah!
Carefully consider the Rock ye were hewn from, and the excavation of
the pit you have been dug out from. Carefully consider ’Avrâhâ´m your
father and Sârâ´h, she who gave birth to you: Just as I called One of
him [the Seed of ’Avrâhâ´m], and I blessed Him and I made him many,
thus Yâ-hwuah has comforted Tsiyyówn; He has consoled all of her ruins
, so He shall transform her uninhabited land like `Ë´then, even her
desert like the Garden of Yâ-hwuah! Rejoicing and happiness shall be
found in her, thanksgiving and the sound of singing.
Christianity is the desolation Rome has made of Tsiyyówn.
This could be a reference to the western uninhabited land refuge of
Disclosure 12, where Yâ-hwuah will restore the desolation of Tsiyyówn,
Christianity, to inhabit again upon their resurrection.
The sense Hirsch brings out is that they had already forgotten Yâ-hwuah
while He was still giving birth to them. We remembered Him only as the
one who “wrote checks”, not as our Father. Moshe was right in his
prognostication. Many Christians are much more familiar with
Yâhuwshúa` than Yâ-hwuah , but they brush this off by saying they are
one and the same. But this is not something our ancestors were familiar
with. (v. 18) They never knew a man as Aluahiym.
How could one chase a thousand and two put ten thousand to flight,
Unless their Rock had sold them,
Their rock: This is speaking about the enemies' Aluahiym. Only if Yâ-

He wants us to consider why we are in this position.
Saying: “I will declare Your name to My brothers; in the midst of the
assembly I will praise You!”
Paul quoted this verse in
I will declare Your Name to My brothers. In the midst of the assembly, I
will praise You.
ekklesia is not a uniquely spiritual term.
It simply means a group of free citizens called out to meet together in
open assembly. This is self-evident within the post-Messianic writings
Three times in this account, the word ekklesia appears in reference to
the citizens of Ephesus.
Then some crowds were screaming out one thing and others another,
for the convocation was confused, and most did not even understand
why they had convened!
A chapter in which most translators do not translate ekklesia as “church.”
When Paul was at Ephesus, a major riot broke out because the guild
members who made silver idols of the goddess Diana were nervous
about how the gospel would affect their business. A great throng of
citizens began crying out "Great is Diana of the Ephesians" for about two
hours. The crowd had gathered in the main theatre and the whole city
was in confusion. Finally, the town clerk appeased the people and
convinced them that if they wished, they should bring such charges as
they might have before a lawful assembly.
And having said these things, he dismissed the convocation
Luke referred to the confused and disorderly mob as an ekklesia, and in
But if ye seek for anything different, let it be resolved by the lawful
The town clerk himself referred to the group of citizens who determine
matters at law, as an ekklesia. (Qahal) will I praise thee.”
The Tehillim prophesied that the HaMaSHiYaCH would appear in the
midst of the congregation of YIsra’al to declare Yâ-hwuah ’s name to
his brothers. In addition, the connection to the words of Moses in
Yâ-hwuah your Aluahiym will raise up to you a prophet from the midst
of you, of your brothers, like me. You shall listen to him.
Muslims claim this is speaking about Muhammad. Many have applied it,
rightly, to Yâhuwshúa`, and by his day people were expecting a
particular one, referred to as "that prophet"
And this is the testimony of Yâhuwchânâ´n, when the “Yehuwthím ”
from Yruwshâláim sent priests and Lwiyyím in order that they might
interrogate him: “You! Who are you? And he professed and did not
deny, and professed: “I am not the Deliverer. ”And they interrogated
him:“ What then? Are you ’ËliyYâ´huw?” He stated: “I am not.”
“Are you the Predicator? ”But he responded: “No.” Therefore they said
to him: “Who are you, in order that we may give an answer to the ones
who sent us; what do you state about yourself?”
But it does not specify a time frame. The direct hearers probably
expected it to occur as soon as Moshe died, or at least in their lifetime.
The text allows for this refer to any prophet in any generation, and
indeed Y'hoshua was meant to be seen as the first, having authority like
Moshe to them, but it can refer to any time such a prophet is needed.
The main point is that Yâ-hwuah will provide someone from among His
people to answer our questions, so that we do not need to go to the
outsiders listed in the preceding verses. Yâ-hwuah wants to speak
directly to Israel and lead through our knowledgeable interpretation of
the Torah, not through one-time magical revelations that teach us
nothing about His ways and cater only to our laziness.
This is according to all that you desired of Yâ-hwuah your Aluahiym in
Choreb in the day of the assembly, saying, “Let me not hear again the
voice of Yâ-hwuah my Aluahiym, neither let me see this great fire any
more that I not die.”
He reminds them that it was their idea to forfeit a direct connection with
Yâ-hwuah and to have a mediator.
They said to Moshah, “Speak with us yourself, and we will listen; but
don’t let Aluahiym speak with us, lest we die.”
So He will choose which type of mediator we will have.
Yâ-hwuah said to me, “They have well said that which they have
I will raise them up a prophet from among their brothers, like you; and I
will put My Words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I
shall command Him.
A prophet from among their brothers: not a god-man
No man has ever discerned the mighty One”,
declared that One Who is the sole-of-kin Son, the One being in the
bosom of the Father.
and not an outsider, but a fellow Israelite--our "Kinsman-Redeemer".
This was seen by the ancient Jews as a Messianic passage, and
Yâhuwshúa` was recognized as the one Moshe had spoken of.
Phílippos finds Nthan’Ë´l and says to him: We have found Him, Whom
Moshéh wrote of within the Law and the Predicators: Yâhuwshúa`! He
is the Son of Yâhuwçë´ph from Netsârówth.”
Initially, though, the first Y'hoshua filled this position. Moshe gave him
some of his authority, and he earned the rest. We will command: This
verb is rather unusual; it appears to read "I will command us", though
"him" would seem the logical object. The term "command" means, at
root, to set in order. What Yâ-hwuah says does set us in order in
relation to Him if we obey it. It may also refer to YHWH and Moshe,
since Yâhuwshúa` whom Yâ-hwuah said was the one to heed,
While he was yet speaking, look! A cloud full of Light overshadowed
them, and look! A voice from the cloud, within Him

Yâhuwshúa` appealed to Moshe's testimony about him.

This one is he who was within the convocation within the uninhabited
land beside the Envoy Who spoke to him, and with our fathers by the
Mountain of Çiynáy, and he is the one who received living decrees to
give to us,
He was contrasting what he would do in the assembly with what Moses
did in the assembly. This was his point. Essentially, he was stating that
he, through his father Yâ-hauh, was given the responsibility to “take
charge” in the assembly, and build it up into the kind of assembly his
father always meant it to be.
