  • Zekeniam Y’ISCHRa’EL 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 My Memorial for generation after generation.” Shemot 3:13-16 This is MY NAME for ever,
  • YaHuWaH, ALuaHiYM of your father’s Abraham, Yitzchak [Isaac], andYa’aqob [Jacob], has sent me to you. This is my name forever, and this ismy memorial for generation to generation." and I appeared to Abraham,to Yitzchak, and to Ya’aqob as hashadday [the almighty]. and my name, YaHuWaH, 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) YaHuWaH [Yah -hoo-Wah] is the Name of the Creator. YaHuWSHuWaH (YaHuWSHuWaH) is His Son ALuaHiYM
  • [Al-u-heem - ALHYM] means "Mighty Ones“ or "Power" Qadosh means Set-apart, Pure. Kodesh (Qodesh) also means "Set-apart" Ruwach (Ruwach) is the Ibriy (Hebrew) name for His "Presence", pictured as the Counselor, Helper, and Advocate, the One Who "proceeds from the Father" Teh 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, thats a matter of building a relationship. You need not have an advanced degree in anysubject, need not have memorized Scripture from beginning to end, but instead be aware the YaHuWaH of Y’ISCHRa’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 tostand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, thatthey 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, dont 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. Teh. 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 fullof 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.” 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 Bibledoes. 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.
  • Rom 7:25I thank YaHuWaH through YaHuWSHuWaH HaMaSHiYaCH, our Master!So then with the mind, I myself serve YaHuWaH’s Torah, but with the flesh, the law of sin. Let me share something with you The "power within" is the sin nature deep within us. This is our vulnerability to sin; it refers to everything within us that is more loyal to our old way of selfish living than to YaHuWaH MattithYahuw 6:21
  • For where your treasure is, there your heart shall be also. Treasure: Aramaic, store, i.e., your “nest egg”. If we first develop a recognition that our ultimate security comes only from YaHuWaH, and act on this in belief (by using what would be our personal security forneeds we may have “someday” to meet needs that others have already),we will look forward more to the time and place where we can enjoy our investments (The true retirement—YaHuWaHs Kingdom of Sabbatical Rest).YaHuWSHuWaH made the connection between almsgiving and treasure in shamayim clearer in Luke 12:21. So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward YaHuWaH.” YaHuWSHuWaH made it clear that having the wrong treasures leads toour hearts being in the wrong place. What we treasure the most controls us, whether we admit it or not. If possessions or money become too important to us, we must re-establish control or get rid of items. YaHuWSHuWaH calls for a decision that allows us to live contentedly with whatever we have because we have chosen eternal values over temporary, earthly treasures. Luke 12:34 For where your treasure is, there shall your heart be also. Gal 5: 16-18 So I advise you to live according to your new life in the RuwachhaQadosh. Then you wont be doing what your sinful nature craves. The old sinful nature loves to do evil, which is just opposite from what the Ruwach haQadosh wants. And the Ruwach haQadosh gives us desiresthat are opposite from what the sinful nature desires. These two forcesare constantly fighting each other, and your choices are never free from
  • this conflict. But when you are directed by the Ruwach haQadosh, you are no longer under Torah. So long as the set Apart in YaHuWaH lives in this world he is, so to speak, two trees—the old tree of the flesh, and the new tree of thedivine nature implanted by the new birth; and the problem itself is, how to keep barren the old tree and to make fruitful the new tree. THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE ????? Romans 6:19 I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh, for as you presented your members as servants to uncleanness and to wickedness upon wickedness, even so now present your members as servants to righteousness for purity. (Modern Translation) I am speaking in human terms on account of your human natures inability to understand this: with that in mind, just as you yielded themembers of your [bodies] into servitude to uncleanness and to one kindof lawlessness after another, so now "enlist" your bodies in the service of righteousness, whose outcome will be sanctification.
  • You’re…inability to understand: This is a mild rebuke to those whoprided themselves on their “ability” to understand something their Jewish neighbors could not. (Ch. 14-15) One kind of lawlessness after another: being sucked deeper and deeper into things contrary to Torah. Enlist: yield yourself rather than being "drafted" against your will into another,unprofitable, kind of service. But he has in mind a particular result to begained by their step-by-step growth in Sacredness which is larger than a merely personal lifestyle of righteousness: the salvation of Jews who do not yet believe. (Ch. 9-12). For this reason he asks them to suppress their bodily lusts (in this case, culinary tastes) for a higher purpose. Every man is the servant of the master to whose commands he yields himself; whether it be the sinful dispositions of his heart, in actions which lead to death, or the new and Ruwachual obedience implanted byregeneration. The Talmidim rejoiced now they obeyed from the heart thegospel, into which they were delivered as into a mold. As the same metal becomes a new vessel, when melted and recast in another mold, so thebeliever has become a new creature. And there is great difference in the liberty of mind and Ruwach, so opposite to the state of slavery, which the true Nätsärim has in the service of his rightful HaMaSHiYaCH, whom he is enabled to consider as his Father, and himself as his son and heir, by the adoption of grace. The dominion of sin consists in being willingly slaves thereto, not in being harassed by it as a hated power, struggling for victory. Those who now are the servants of YaHuWaH once were the slaves of sin. Romans 6:16 Don’t you know that to whom you present yourselves as servants to obedience, his servants you are whom you obey; Whether of sin to death,
  • Or of obedience to righteousness? HALELUYAH For as through the one man’s disobedience many were madesinners, even so through the obedience of the One, many will be made righteous. Philippians 2:8He humbled Himself, becoming obedient to death, yes, even the death of the stake. MattithYahuw 11:28ff“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened [with human traditions], and I shall give you rest [right standing/deliverance]! TakeMy yoke [right standing/deliverance] upon you, and learn from Me, for Iam tranquil and I am meek ; and in My heart you will find tranquility in your souls. For My yoke is pleasant, and My burden is light.” There is no choice but to be obedient now; the choice is between whether to submit to Mashiyach “easy yoke” or a view of Torah as burdensome, which emphasizes its power to condemn. Empowering favor: includes both amnesty for sin and the ability generously given to be able to accomplish what Torah aimed at--the positive effects of holiness, without unnecessary fear of being condemned for going about it wrongly. Since YaHuWSHuWaH has undergone the penalty for the time when we were not obedient, Torah now has only positive meaningfor those who submit to it: teaching us countless things about YaHuWaH and His Mashiyach Heb. 10:7Then I said, "Behold I come, as it is written of Me in the beginning of the Books, to do Your will, O YaHuWaH"
  • bringing us great reward Tehillim. 19:11 Moreover by them is Your servant warned.In guarding them there is great reward. Freeing us from unnecessary obstacles Shemot 15:26 and He said, “If you will diligently listen to the Voice of YaHuWaH your Aluahiym, and will do that which is right in His eyes, and will pay attention to His Commandments, and guard all His statutes, I will putnone of the diseases on you, which I have put on the Mitsrites; for I AM YaHuWaH Who heals you.”The Voice: Aram., "Living Word". The undrinkable water was a reminder of the first plague that came upon Mitsrayim, as a warning that YaHuWaH could start a countdown against them in just the same way. Mitsrayim is also symbolic of the church, which has become weak because of obeying only some of the commandments, not all of them. The water of the Torah seems bitter because we have been told that obeying it is rebellion against YaHuWaH, but there is nothing else todrink. The Ibriy word for tree also means “stick”, and the two houses of Ysraal, when brought back together, are made “one stick”. READ Yehezqel 37 READ When the truth that we are Ysraal is added to the Torah, we realizethat it is our national constitution and what sets us apart as a people. It thus becomes sweet to us again in a way it never could be when wethought it was “just for the Jews”. Note that he makes a point of sayingthat obedience was not the goal, but "giving ear" was just as important, because many people obey in a literal sense but learn nothing from it.
  • Yehoshua 1:8This scroll of the Torah shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shallmeditate on it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success. Our attitude toward it now can be one of unmixed love. Tehillim 119:97 How this became translated to ignoring it completely is a sample of the subtlety of the enemy’s deceit. How can we ignore a house plan and expect to build the house correctly? Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in HaMaSHiYaCH YaHuWSHuWaH, who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Ruwach.When we respond to YaHuWSHuWaHs call to repent will no longer have their ancestors rebellion counted against them. The penalty has beenpaid; we, as the Body, are identified with the righteous character of ourHead, who paid it (7:17, 20; 1 Yoch. 3:9) , if we indeed continue to act in tandem with him. Romans 8:2
  • For the Torah of the Ruwach of Life in HaMaSHiYaCH YaHuWSHuWaH made me free from the law of sin and of death. Only the approach changes, as the law of aerodynamics prevails over, but does not cancel, the law of gravity. (Bedell) We are empowered to rise above our evil inclination while still living in a body subject to its influence. (v. 11) Justice having been satisfied, we can again see YaHuWaHs commands as an expression of His desire that life be thebest it can be in a fallen world, rather than something that condemns us. They are solid ground to land on; their "teeth" are removed and they become mainly instructive--our friends--once we are free from fear in regard to whether we have observed them well enough. Romans 8:3 For what the Torah couldn’t do, in that it was weak through the flesh,YaHuWaH did, sending His Own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh; Couldn’t do: Once we had forsaken the covenant, it held only condemnation for us, and did not contain the mechanism by which a whole nation, once shattered, could return, unbesmirched, to favor with YHWH. Also, Sha’ul again uses the motif of “weakness” to set the stage for his answer to those who consider others “weaker” than themselves. (Segal, Nanos; cf. note on 7:7) Condemned sin: not merely judged, but rendered it even more censurable because of his perfect example of what a human being can be. In the likeness of sinful flesh: Thoughtempted in every way (Heb. 4:15), he was flesh and yet did not sin, thus precluding any idea that the physical nature, as such, is inherently evil. To deal with sin: The main purpose of YaHuWSHuWaH first coming as the “Mashiyach ben Yoseyf” was to be “bruised for our iniquities” (Yesh.53:5), whereas when He returns in the role of “Mashiyach ben David”, it will be “without reference to sin” on the part of those whom He has already cleansed (6:10; Heb. 9:12, 26-28; Yoch. 15:3) In the flesh: Aramaic, in His (YaHuWSHuWaH) flesh. I.e., by incorporating into Himself all the unpunished sins especially of the prodigal Northern Kingdom, He was able to pay off their penalty and thus nullify our debt,so that sin had no more claim on us. Torah: the same word in Greek and
  • Aramaic as the two “principles” in v. 2, and hence here it may refer to the latter of these rather than the Torah of Moshe, but not in v. 4: Romans 8:4 that the ordinance of the Torah might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Ruwach. Ordinance: Righteous requirement of the Torah: the outcome that YaHuWaH had originally intended before there was a Torah: true love towards YaHuWaH and ones neighbor. It counts as equivalent in Hiseyes as long as we keep ordering our lives (literally, walking, a concreteHebrew way of putting it) along that path and not the other, though we are still in sin-infested bodies Romans 8:5For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things ofthe flesh, but those who live according to the Ruwach, the things of the Ruwach.According to the flesh: specifically, those more concerned that they were free to eat certain things without seeing that it was preventing those who were obligated to kosher laws from recognizing them as genuinely possessing a salvation that the latter also needed. Direct their minds to the things of earthly nature: though they now have the option of notdoing so. Living according to Ruwach: letting their human spirit, revived by being reconnected to YaHuWaHs Ruwach, be united into one operating force, thus pursuing the things of the Ruwach realm. Romans 8:6 For the mind of the flesh is death, but the mind of the Ruwach is life and peace;The mindset of the flesh: the natural way of thinking, the "psychic" mind of which cannot comprehend spiritual matters, but judges according to its own feelings or reasoning’s.
  • 1 Cor 2:12-15 But we received, not the Ruwach of the world, but the Ruwach which isfrom YaHuWaH, that we might know the things that were freely given to us by YaHuWaH Which things also we speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Ruwach haQadosh teaches, comparing Ruwachual matters with Ruwachual matters. Now the natural man doesn’t receive the things of YaHuWaH’s Ruwach, for they are foolishness to him, and he can’t know them, because they are Ruwachual discerned. But he who is Ruwachual discerns all things, and he himself is judged by no one.  PLEASE PAUSE, AND READ CAREFULLY THE NEXT VERSES  “For who has known the mind of YaHuWaH, that he should instruct Him? But we have Mashiyach’s mind. WALK THE WALK; NOT JUST TALK THE TALK Romans 8:7 because the mind of the flesh is for the Adversary against YaHuWaH; for it is not subject to YaHuWaHs Torah, neither indeed can it be. This explanation of the limitations of human religion unaided by YaHuWaH’s intervention accounts for Sha’ul’s lack of success (ch. 7). Enmity: in Aramaic, the word is the equivalent of the Hebrew Ba’al-zebub. Able: The same term used of one faction in the debate Sha’ul is addressing here (ch. 14-15). Romans 8:8 Those who are in the flesh can’t please YaHuWaH.
  • Thus those who operate in the [strength of] flesh [alone] have no power to please Aloha . The most powerful life is the most simple life. The most powerful life is the life that knows where its going,that knows where the source of strength is, and the life that stays free of clutter and happenstance and hurriedness. Being busy is not a sin. YaHuWSHuWaH was busy. Paul was busy. Kepha was busy. Nothing of significance is achieved without effort and hard work and weariness. Being busy, in and of itself, is not a sin. But being busy in an endless pursuit of things that leave us empty and hollow and broken inside—that cannot be pleasing to YaHuWaH. One source of mans weariness is the pursuit of things that can never satisfy; but which one of us has not been caught up in that pursuit at some time in our life? Our passions, possessions, and pride—these are all dead things. When we try to get life out of dead things, the result is only weariness and dissatisfaction.
  • Ephesios 4:22 Throw off your old evil nature and your former way of life, which is rotten through and through, full of lust and deception. Instead, theremust be a Ruwachual renewal of your thoughts and attitudes. You must display a new nature because you are a new person, created in YaHuWaHs likeness--righteous, Set-apart, and true. Created in righteousness and true Sacredness. The old adage is so true. Lust is like a fire. The more you feed it, themore it demands. The hotter it gets, the hotter it burns. "Put it off," Paul says. "Instead, be renewed in the Ruwach of your mind." Rhomaios 12:2Don’t be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is the good, well-pleasing, and perfect will of YaHuWaH. "Let YaHuWaH transform you into a new person by changing the way you think." It is possible to avoid most worldly customs and still beproud, covetous, selfish, stubborn, and arrogant. Only when the Ruwach HaQodesh renews, reeducates, and redirects our mind are we truly transformed Rhomaios 8:5For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things ofthe flesh, but those who live according to the Ruwach, the things of the Ruwach.
  • Mind the things of the Ruach - Think of, relish, love things invisible,eternal; the things which the Ruach hath revealed, which he works in us, moves us to, and promises to give us. Ecclesiastes 2:26 For to the man who pleases him, YaHuWaH gives wisdom, knowledge,and joy; but to the sinner he gives travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him who pleases YaHuWaH . This also is vanity and a chasing after wind. 2 Tim 9-10It is YaHuWaH Who saved us and called us with a set-apart calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and favor,which was given us in Mashiyach YaHuWSHuWaH from time before the ages (before the beginning of time) and is now made manifest by theappearing of our Savior YaHuWSHuWaH HaMaSHiYaCH - who abolished death, and has brought Life and immortality to light through the Besorah. Finally I leave you with this thought They came to Elim, where there were twelve springs of water, and seventy palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters. Elim: means "strong ones". Twelve springs of water: 70 persons--still just one clan--went into Mitsrayim (1:5), but came back out as twelve whole tribes. There are 70 nations delineated in Bereshiyth 10, corresponding with the number of the sons of Ysraal. (Deut. 32:8) A (date) palm tree is a symbol of the flourishing of the righteous (Tehillim 92:12); water symbolizes the teaching of the Torah, and 70 palms signifies that THIS "oasis" provides enough for all of the nations. Not until Ysraal had been removed from Mitsrayim could she be such a lightto the nations. This resting place is therefore a foreshadowing of the age
  • to come, when the leaves of the tree of life (within the city with 12 gatesnamed after the sons of Ysraal) provide healing to the nations. (Rev. 22) shalom YaHuWSHuWaH ALuaHiYM YaHuWSHuWaH HaMaSHiYaCH In His Name Blessed be, in His name
  • YaHuWaH be with you. and they answered him, YaHuWaH bless you. " Be not blind to the truthAnd, hinnei, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that YaHuWSHuWaH passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O YaHuWaH, [thou] Ben David. An YaHuWSHuWaH stood still, and calledthem, and said, what will ye that I shall do unto you they say unto Him, YaHuWaH, that our eyes may be opened. So YaHuWSHuWaH had 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 YaHuWaH keiYAH nätzräyaRemember me and pray for me that YaHuWaH will be gracious unto meand 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 (Ruwachual 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 thedispenser. He who preaches to get a living, or make a fortune, is guilty of the most infamous sacrilege
