  • Zekenim YIsraEL Sherut haRitztzuy (the ministry of reconciliation) by whom we have now received the ( Atonement) reconciliation of the Dvar HaRitztzuyLet this day be a day of reconciliation and regeneration) Unto EHYEH ASHER EHYEH My Memorial for generation after generation." Shemot 3:13-16 This is MY NAME for ever, I AM / WILL BE WHAT I AM / WILL BE: The ministry of reconciliation Message of Reconciliation Torah sh’Bichtav (Written Torah) Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
  • NOTES Comfort you My People: YHWH ( Yahuah) is the hebrew name of God Ruakh is the hebrew forRuakh Ruakh HaQodesh is the hebrew for Ruakh HaQodesh Yahu(ah)shua is the hebrew name for Jesus To be immersed in Yahu(ah)shua ,s name ( continued) Do not reject the only saving name of Yahu(ah)shua sometimes the past ( old covenant) points the way Melekhim Bet 5:1 Now Naaman, captain of the host of the melekh Aram, was a great man with his master, and honourable, because by him YHWH (‫ )יהוה‬had given deliverance unto Aram: he wasalso a mighty man in valour, [but he was] a metzorah (leper). And the Aram had gone out by companies, and had brought away captive out of the land of Yisrael a little maid; and she waited on Naamans wife. And she said unto her mistress: "Would Elohim ( ‫ )אלהים‬my Eloahi [were] with the Navi that [is] in Shomron! for hewould recover him of his leprosy. And [one] went in, and told his adon, saying: "Thus and thus said the maid that [is] of the land of Yisrael. And the melekh Aram said, Go to, go, and I will send a letter unto the melekh Yisrael. And he departed, and took with him ten talents of silver, and six thousand [pieces] of gold, and ten changes of raiment. And hebrought the letter to the melekh Yisrael, saying, Now when this letter is come unto thee, behold, I have [therewith] sent Naaman my servant to thee, that thou mayest recoverhim of his leprosy. And it came to pass, when the melekh Yisrael had read the letter, that he rent his clothes, and said, [Am] I Elohim ( ‫ ,)אלהים‬to kill and to make alive, that this man doth send unto me to recover a man of his leprosy? wherefore consider, I pray you, and see how he seeketh a quarrel against me. And it was [so], when Elisha the man of Elohim (‫ )אלהים‬had heard that the melekh Yisrael had rent his clothes, that he sent to the king, saying, Wherefore hast thou rent thy clothes? let him come now to me, and heshall know that there is a Navi in Yisrael. So Naaman came with his horses and with his chariot, and stood at the door of the Beit Elisha. And Elisha sent a messenger unto him,saying: "Go and wash in Yarden seven times, and thy flesh shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean." But Naaman was wroth, and went away, and said, Behold, Ithought, He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of YHWH (‫)יהוה‬ his Elohim ( ‫ ,)אלהים‬and strike his hand over the place, and recover the leper.
  • [Are] not Abana and Pharpar, rivers of Dammesek, better than all the waters ofYisrael? may I not wash in them, and be clean? So he turned and went away in a rage. And his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father, [if] the Navi hadbid thee [do some] great thing, wouldest thou not have done [it]? how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean? Then went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Yarden, according to the saying of the man of Elohim: and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean. Yours and my salvation depend on obediance to YHWH basic message to mankind is that our salvation is anchored to Yahu(ah)shua HaMeshiakh,, the One YHWH ( Yahuah) sent to earth for a living example and the One Who died for the sins of the world. Hebrews 5:9. And being made perfect, He became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; The command reads Acts 10:48 And he commanded them to be immersed in the Name of Yahu(ah)shua HaMeshiakh. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days. Footnote Yahu(ah)shua HaMeshiakh (Yahu(ah)shua HaMeshiakh carries the name of the father within, in so much has we n ´have YHWH(Yahu), (ah) Breathe, Shua (saves) Sadly Some still argue and rejected that simple command to be Immersed into thesaving Name of Yahu(ah)shua, much as Naaman refused the prophet’s command to dip inthe Jordan River to be healed of leprosy. Naaman argued in his rebellion that other foreign rivers are just as good, At times those claiming humbly to follow the Scripture have “reasoned” as Naamaninitially that it is neither necessary nor logical to be immersed into Yahu(ah)shua’s Namewhen they already have been Immersed in the name of “Jesus” or perhaps in the titles of Father, Son and Holy Ghost years ago while in the churches. But titles are not names. We find no power or promises in titles. When we come to a better understanding of the Scripture, we should do everything possible to fulfill all righteousness. One very important act is to be immersed “into the View slide
  • only name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved,” Ein shem achar Acts 4:12 Salvation is found in no one else:For there is neither is there any other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. !!!!!!! PLEASE READ THAT AGAIN; YOUR SALVATION DEPENDS ON IT !!!!!!! The name Jesus carries no such meaning, and titles alone have no legal obligation on any contract. Through Immersion we enter the covenant of Yahuah. The Problem with Matthew 28 Matthew 28:19-20 is questioned by reputable scholars as the authentic formula for Immersion. Every example in Acts shows that the candidate is immersed into the single Name, Yahu(ah)shua, not a trinitarian formula. A trinity or triad of deities is found in almost all pagan religions, and the concept of a Christian trinity likely sprang from an attempt to please pagan converts. (please read previous study) Matthew 28:19-20 commands immersing into “the name,” singular. The YerushalayimScripture, a Catholic publication, admits this verse is spurious and had likely crept into the text from liturgical usage. This same finding is expressed in “World Religions,” “TheEncyclopedia of Religion & Ethics,” “New Schaff Herzog Religious Encyclopedia,” “Hastings Dictionary of the Scripture,” and other sources. Examples in the Book of ActsTake note of THE NAME into which the converts are to be immersed in the examples from The Holy Name Scripture: Acts 2:38Then Kefa (‫ )פטרוס‬said unto them, Teshuvah, and be immersed every one of you in theName of Yahu(ah)shua (‫ )ישוע‬HaMeshiakh for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Ruakh HaQodesh.

  • must be saved. Acts 8:16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were immersed in the name of Eloahi Yahu(ah)shua (‫)ישוע‬ Acts 10:48 And he commanded them to be immersed in the Name of Yahu(ah)shua .Then prayed they him to tarry certain days. Acts19:5 When they heard [this], they were immersed in The Name of Eloahi Yahu(ah)shua ( ‫.)ישוע‬ Acts 22:16 And now why do you delay? Arise, and be immersed, and wash away your sins, calling on the Name. Again the name Yahu(ah)shua is the only Authority we have for Immersion the name means YHWH (Yahuah) (breathe) saves) Yoel 3:5 (2:32And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever shall call on the Name of YHWH (‫ )יהוה‬shall be delivered: for in mount Tziyon and in Yerushalayim shall be deliverance, as YHWH ( ‫ )יהוה‬hath said, and in the remnant whom YHWH ( ‫ )יהוה‬shall call. It is apparent from the above record found in Acts that the Apostles immersed all repentant believers into the single, saving Name of Yahu(ah)shua HaMeshiakh. The Savior and His disciples naturally spoke Hebrew. Acts 26:14-15And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Shaul, Shaul, why persecutest thou me? [it is] hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And I said, Who art thou, eloahi? And he said, Ani (I AM)Yahu(ah)shua ( ‫)ישוע‬ whom thou persecutest.
  • also reveals the Savior spoke to Paul in Hebrew. Acts 9:5 reads, “I am Yahu(ah)shua of Nazareth whom thou persecutest...” The hybrid name Jesus came much later through garbled translations. Acts 9:4-5 And he fell to the earth, and heard a Voice saying unto him, Shaul , Shaul , why persecutest thou Me? And Shaul said: Who art thou, Master( ‫?)אדני‬ And Yahu(ah)shua said: Ani Yahu(ah)shua (‫)ישוע‬ whom you are persecuting: [it is] hard for thee to kick against the pricks. He Fell , has another did before eden ,This is the power of Yahuah,s Voice , from alpha (father) comes the sound (bet) Buried With Yahu(ah)shuaPaul emphasizes that Immersion is into the Name of Yahu(ah)shua as given Him from on high. Rhomaios 6:3Know ye not, that so many of us as were immersed into Yahu(ah)shua HaMeshiakh were immersed into His death? Rhomaios 6:4 Therefore we are buried with Him by immersion into death: that like as Meshiakh wasraised up from the dead by the kavod ha Avi, even so we also should walk in newness of LIFE Let us continue here for a moment we consecrate our lives for the Savior. And as we strive for righteousness, sinhas no dominion over us, for we are not under the penalty of the law, but under grace.
  • Knowing this, that our old man is impaled with [him], that the body of sin might bedestroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin. Now if we be dead with Meshiakh, we believe that we shall also live with Him: Knowing that Meshiakh being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that He died, He died unto sin once: but in that He liveth, he liveth untoElohim (‫ .)אלהים‬Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto Elohim ( ‫ )אלהים‬through Yahu(ah)shua ( ‫ )ישוע‬ha Meshiakh Eloneinu. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members [as] instruments of unrighteouness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto Elohim (‫ ,)אלהים‬as those that are alive from the dead, and your members [as] instruments of Tzedek unto Elohim (‫ .)אלהים‬For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the Torah, but under unmerited favour. Korínthios Alef 1:30But of him are you in Meshiakh Yahu(ah)shua ( ‫ ,)ישוע‬who of Elohim (‫ )אלהים‬is made to us wisdom, and tzedakah (righteousness) , and set-apartness, and redemption: That, according as it is written, he that glories, LET HIM GLORY IN YHWH (Yahuah) Paul again emphasizes the one Name into which we are Immersed, 1Corinthians 1:11 -13. For it have been declared to me of you, my achim, by them [which are of the house] ofChloe, that there are contentions among you. Now this I say, that every one of you says,I am of Paulos; and I of Apollos; and I of Kefa; and I of Messiakh. Is Messiakh divided? was Paulos impaled for you? or were you immersed in the name of Paulos? He is demonstrating that we are immersed into one Name, the Name of Yahu(ah)shua! We are all made one in Him and are Abraham’s seed, being heirs according to the promise. Galates 3:26-29 For you are all the sons of Elohim ( ‫ )אלהים‬by faith in Meshiakh Yahu(ah)shua ( ‫.)ישוע‬For as many of you as have been immersed into Meshiakh have put on Meshiakh.There isneither Yehudi nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female:for you are all one in Meshiakh Yahu(ah)shua ( ‫ .)ישוע‬And if you be Meshiakhs, then are you Avrahams seed, and heirs according to the promise.Proper Immersion into the true Name of the Savior of YIsraEL is a definite and emphatic command of the Savior Himself, and is as essential to salvation as any of the other
  • commands of the Scripture. By our guilt we are moved into action Acts 2:38 Then Kefa (‫ )פטרוס‬said unto them, Teshuvah, and be immersed every one of you inthe Name of Yahu(ah)shua HaMeshiakh for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Ruakh HaQodesh. If repentance is necessary for the remission of sins, so is proper Immersion. Acts 16:16 He that believes and is immersed shall be saved; but he that believes not shall be damned. Galatians 3:26-27For you are all the sons of Elohim (‫ )אלהים‬by faith in Meshiakh Yahu(ah)shua ( ‫ .)ישוע‬For as many of you as have been immersed into Meshiakh have put on Meshiakh. By being immersed into the saving Name of Yahu(ah)shua, we have in effect put on His righteousness. Yochanan 3:5 Yeshua (‫ )ישוע‬answered, Truly, Truly, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and [of] the Ruakh, he cannot enter into the Malkut Elohim (‫ .)אלהים‬That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Ruakh isRuakh . Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The windbloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Ruakh. why would one hang back and refuse the clear command of Scripture? Why not do all one can to fulfill all righteousness? even those who may already have been given of Yahu(ah)shua’s Ruakh are still required to be immersed into Yahu(ah)shua’s saving Name. Acts 10:47-48 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be immersed, which have received the
  • Ruach HaKodesh as well as we? And he commanded them to be immersed in the Name of Yahu(ah)shua. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days. The importance of being immersed in Yahu(ah)shuas name Yochanan 14:6 Yahu(ah)shua (‫ )ישוע‬saith unto him,ANI ha Derek(way), ha Emet(truth), ve ha Chayim(life): no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me. Yahu(ah)shua is the “door” Yochanan 10:9 ANI HU ha shaar: by Me if any man enter in, he shall come to yeshuat Eloheinu, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. Only through Yahu(ah)shua is the Ruakh HaQodesh given us. The Ruakh was and is first given to Yahu(ah)shua Acts 2:33: The Ruakh HaQodesh is channeled to mankind in the Name of Yahu(ah)shua. John 14:26: “But the Comforter, which is the Ruakh HaQodesh, whom the Father will send in My name...” The Savior had to go to the heavens so that the Ruakh HaQodesh could be available to mankind through Yahu(ah)shua. ” John 16:7. Nevertheless I tell you the emet; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. The Ruakh HaQodesh is given by YHWH (Yahuah) only through Yahu(ah)shua’s (YHWHSHUA) saving Name.
  • Acts 4:12 . Salvation is found in no one else:For there is neither is there any other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Titus 3:4-6.But after that the kindness and love of Elohim ( ‫ )אלהים‬Moshieynu toward man appeared,Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Ruakh HaQodesh; Which he shed on us abundantly through Yahu(ah)shua ( ‫ )ישוע‬Meshiakh Moshieynu; Receiving of His indwelling Ruakh is one manifestation. In taking on His true Name we become a part of His Body. We become a part of the family called by YHWH (Yahuah’s) Name (Ephesians 3:14 -15). For this cause I bow my knees unto ha Avinu of our Eloahi Yahu(ah)shua HaMeshiakh ( ‫ ,)ישוע‬Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, True Repentance The first step in being Immersed is to repent. “Repent” in the renewed covenant is fromthe Greek metanoeo, which means to change one’s mind, and also to regret, feel remorse over the view previously held, to think differently afterwards. The call for repentance and the promise of forgiveness is followed by turning to the ways of Yahuah with a full heart. It means more than just feeling sorry, or changing one’s mind, but a turning around; a complete change of goals and motivation in one’s life. Which Age Is Appropriate? This means that babies and children are not yet mature enough to comprehend themeaning of Immersion and do not understand fully the meaning of repentance. It is only upon reaching maturity that they are considered responsible for their actions. According to YHWH (Yahuah’s )Word, that age is twenty years. Some mature beforereaching that age, and others are immature long after. Yahuah feels that by the time His people have reached the age of twenty they are then responsible. How do we know 20 is the age?In the Old Covenant, those age twenty and over died in the wilderness because they did not believe Yahuah’s promises and refused to cross over the Jordan River , Numbers 14:29.
  • Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me,Ages nineteen and under were spared. (There are more examples showing that twenty is the Scripture age of maturity, including the age the men were numbered and went into the military). As long as children live with their believing parents, YHWH (Yahuah) sees to it they are under His protective umbrella 1Cor. 7:14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they kadosh. Immersion Is a Burial Briefly, the only acceptable Immersion is done by complete immersion.The evidence fromthe Scripture shows Immersions all took place where there was an abundance of water for immersing. John 3:23 . And Yochanan also was immersing in Einayim near to Shalem, because there was much mayim there: and they came, and were immersed. Yahu(ah)shua came up out of the water, ” Mark 1:10 . And straightway coming up out of the mayim, He saw the Shamayim opened, and the Ruakh like a dove descending upon him: Philip and the eunuch both went down into the water, and then “they were come up out of the water, ”Acts 8:38 -39. I believe that Yahu(ah)shua ( ‫ )ישוע‬HaMeshiakh is BEN Elohim (‫ .)אלהים‬And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, bothPhilippos and the Believer (eunuch); and he immersed him. And when they were come up
  • out of the water, the Ruakh HaQodesh caught away Philippos, that the Believer (eunuch) saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.If all they needed was a cupful of water, there would have been no need to both go down into it! Laying On Of HandsImmersion cleanses one from all sins. At the moment of Immersion the individual standsbefore Yahuah as if he or she had never sinned. This is known as justification and means one is justified in the cleansing work of the Savior. All sins are washed away. But we still have the carnal nature to overcome, and there remains another requirement following Immersion that we are to perform. Known as “the laying on of hands,” this on-going practice was carried out by the Folllowers of Yahu(ah)shua , the nätzräyim since the early assembly in Yerushalayim . Acts 8:17 Then laid they [their] hands on them, and they received the Ruach HaQodesh shows that the laying on of hands by the Apostles made it possible for the receiving of the Ruakh HaQodesh. Acts 9:17 And Chananyah ( ‫ )חנניה‬went his way, and entered into the house; and putting hishands on him said, Brother Shaul ( ‫ ,)שאול‬YHWH (Yahuah), [even] Yahu(ah)shua ( ‫,)ישוע‬ that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Ruakh HaQodesh. records how Ananias laid hands on Paul who then received his sight and was filled with the Ruakh HaQodesh. Paul wrote to young Timothy, “Neglect not the gift that is in you, which was given you by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.” Thus, we learn that believers are given a special gift of the Ruakh HaQodesh to uplift and strengthen the assembly. Paul laid hands upon Timothy for the gift, 2 Timothy 1:6. Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of Elohim, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands. Only One True Immersion Ephesians 4:5 For YHWH echad (One EL), emunah achat (One faith), tevilah achat (one Immersion)teaches there is one El, one faith, one Immersion. The “one Immersion” is the Immersion
  • into Yahu(ah)shua the HaMeshiakh for the remission of sins. All other Immersions aremore or less Immersions of repentance — a type of Yochanan Immersion where one has gone as far as one knows at that time. But now that we understand we are to be immersed into the “only name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved,” every effort must be made to be immersed into Yahu(ah)shua’s Name for the remission of sins. Such Immersion is the highest on earth. There is nothing higher, and there is no need to be Immersed all over again as is oftendone in the churches. Yahu(ah)shua’s saving Name stands preeminently above all names. The Ruakh WithinBeing immersed into Yahu(ah)shua’s Name and having hands laid on by the Elders of the Assembly means one is immersed into Yahu(ah)shua’s Body. The Ruakh HaQodesh is given to those Immersed and from that point onward; the very Ruakh or power of Yahuah is within that individual. We are then to set our hearts on the gifts of theRuakh . Paul urges the believer to seek those things that edify and lift up the assembly. He does not encourage speaking in tongues 1Cor 14:5 I would that you all spake with leshonot (tongues), but rather that you prophesied: for greater [is] he that prophesies than he that speaks with leshonot (tongues), except he interpret, that the assembly may receive edifying. Paul says that tongues are a sign for the unbeliever, but inspired preaching is intended for them which believe, 1 Cor 14:22 Wherefore leshonot (tongues) are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them thatbelieve not: but prophesying [serveth] not for them that believe not, but for them which believe. Paul goes on to say that he who seeks insight into Yahuah’s Word is greater. Why Do You Wait? The more we study and learn of Yahuah, the greater is our responsibility. We are more accountable for the knowledge Yahuah has revealed to us through His Word. We are not to sit idly by and do nothing. Ours is the responsibility of the “great commission” to teach all nations His truth. If you have not been immersed into Yahu(ah)shua’s saving Name you need to be. Even Yahu(ah)shua, who was perfect, was Immersed by Yochanan to show His complete
  • obedience. You have nothing to lose and the Kingdom to gain by being willingly obedient in allthings, as was our Savior in His example for us. the high calling we have in Yahu(ah)shua,is to be a part of His “Ekklesia” — the called out ones — to rule, and that mankind shouldrepent and change his ways so that he learns of the ways Yahu(ah)shua has laid down forus. Yahu(ah)shua is choosing His own who willingly are Immersed into His name and seek for that first resurrection to be with Him in the coming Kingdom. Then, as a part of that Ruakh ual body of Meshiakh , our task will be to reach out and help others to come to a saving knowledge of His ways. Eloneinu Yëshuå HaMeshiakh In His Name Be not blind to the truth And, hinnei, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Yahusha ( ‫ )יהושע‬passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O YHWH, [thou] Ben David. And Yahusha stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?They say unto Him, YHWH, that our eyes may be opened. So Yahushahad compassion [on them], and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him. His servant and yours Shalom in Righteousness by the GRACE of YHWH keiYAH nätzräyaremember me and pray for me that YHWH 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 Ruakh (spiritual work): what a scandal is it for aman to traffic with gifts which he pretends, at least, to have received from the RuakhHaQodesh, 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
