  • 1. Zekeniam Y’Isra’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, I AM / WILL BE WHAT I AM / WILL BE:
  • 2. A " nd YHWH said to mosheh , I am that which I am. [ehyeh asher ehyeh] and he said, so you will say to the sons of Y’isra’EL, " am [ehyeh] has sent me to you." Iand YHWH said further to mosheh, now you are to say to the sons of Y’isra’EL,Y" HWH, elohey of your fathers Abraham, Yitzchak [Isaac], and Yaa’qob [Jacob], has sent me to you. this is my name forever, and this is my memorial for generation to generation." " hemoth 6:3,"and I appeared to Abraham, to S Yitzchak, and to Yaa’qob as hashadday [the almighty]. and my name, YHWH, was not well known (famous) to them. YHWH, ELohey Tsebaoth, is his name. The ministry of reconciliation Message of Reconciliation Torah sh’Bichtav (Written Torah) Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. Kórinthos bet 3:17 Now YHWH (‫ )יהוה‬Himself is Ruakh: and where the Ruakh of YHWH (‫[ )יהוה‬is], there [is] liberty. This is a royal law of liberty, of a king, speaking of his Kingdom, and not a yoke which gendereth to bondage Yaakov 1:25 But whoso looketh into the perfect Torah of liberty, and continueth [therein], he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. Yaakov 2:8 If ye fulfil the royal Torah according to the scripture: is perfect freedom
  • 3. Yaakov 2:12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the Torah of liberty. Shimon Kefa Alef 2:15-17 For so is the will of Elohim, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men As free, and not using [your] liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but as the avadim Elohim. Honour all [men]. ahavah the brotherhood. Fear Elohim. Or have we forgot so soon to whom you pay homage Shimon Kefa Alef 2:9 But ye [are] a chosen generation, a royal kehunah, a set apart nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: That promise is on condition we hold to His Covenant, His commandments, sacred,  PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY  Modern day translation is in this colourNow therefore, if ye will obey MY Kol indeed, and keep MY Brit, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto Me above all people: for all the earth [is] Mine: And now, if you diligently obey My voice, and shall guard My covenant, then you shall be My treasured possession above all the peoples – for all the earth is Mine Hear, listen, 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 Ruakh that lies behind the letter. Rashi said this means that if we hear and obey once, we will be able to keep hearing andimprove in our obedience. The first step is the hardest, and as we get over that hump, it willbecome easier until it becomes second nature. We must not despise small beginnings. To be able to obey in bigger things, we must obey in the smallest. If a child will not obey his parent, how can he ever obey the Torah? If a student will not listen to his teacher, how will he ever heard YHWHs 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’Isra’EL will not, because it is locked away in His "harem" (which in
  • 4. Semitic languages really has a positive meaning of being specially set apart). Everyone belongs to YHWH, but Y’Isra’EL will be special to Him—on the condition that we put intothe 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. For you [art] Am Qodesh to YHWH (‫ )יהוה‬Eloheicha: YHWH (‫ )יהוה‬Eloheicha has chosen you to be Am Segullah (Treasured People) to himself, above all people that [are] upon ha panim adamah.“For you are a set-apart people to ‫ יהוה‬your Elohim. ‫ יהוה‬your Elohim has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a treasured possession above all the peoples 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". Malakhi 3:17-18And they shall be mine, saith YHWH (‫ )יהוה‬Tzavaot, in that day when I make up My jewels;and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and ra ah (discern) between the Tzedek and the rasha (wicked), between him that serveth ִ Elohim (‫ )אֹלהי‬and him that serveth him not.Others may be allowed to slide with such practices—elsewhere in the world—for a time, butnot you, not here in My land, and not now! You must be kept cleaner than the rest, polishedbetter than others, and not exposed to filth like some other vessels He had made. The door isopen to any who would follow Yahshua by walking in Torah. “Many are called—but few are chosen”, for only those who leave behind their former treasures can be YHWH’s treasure. Few end up actually being the elect, because they do not follow the call they hear. Only as part of Y’Isra’EL can you be the elect. Kingdom life cannot be found elsewhere.For thou [art] am Qodesh unto YHWH Eloheicha, and YHWH (‫ )יהוה‬hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that [are] upon the earth for you are a set-apart people to ‫ יהוה‬your Elohim, and ‫ יהוה‬has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a treasured possession above all the peoples who are on the face of the earth He does not want His children to do anything in a common way or live an "unexaminedlife". We do not want to settle for just being a treasure to Him, but being a special treasure! Now Moshe is speaking of YHWH more as a Husband than as a Father. Being a special treasure indeed means that others will be excluded, no matter how they are grouped--an unpopular fact today. Who? Anyone who does these pagan things. Y’Isra’EL has been set apart; that is already indisputably accomplished. Our job is to separate ourselves untoY’Isra’EL so we can actually be a part of that calling. As Moshe said at Mt. Sinai, "Whoever is for YHWH, come over to me" (to the Torah that he represents). It does not matter whoyour parents were; "whoever will may come". But come you must. It will not come about by magic; we have to immerse ourselves in His Word to so it becomes engrained in us. Treasure Him through His words and He will treasure you. Embracing these awesome relationships with YHWH also brings with it much responsibility. You cannot set yourself
  • 5. apart to YHWH without giving yourself away to the rest of Y’Isra’EL. The promise is to a people, not to individuals as such. And YHWH (‫ )יהוה‬hath avouched thee this day to be His peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that [thou] shouldest keep all His mitzvot; 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. 1 Kefa/Peter 1 speaks of an inheritance reserved for us in heaven (Yahu(ah)shua said that was where no corrupting force from earth could affect it), to be revealed (on earth) in the end times. Chapter 4 calls us living stones that are precious to YHWH. But the whole people is the treasure. We keep His commandments not just for our own sake, but for the benefit of all Y’Isra’EL. That is the way to truly live for Him. In whom you also trusted, after that you heard the Dvar of truth, the Good News of yourYeshuah: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Ruakh haQodesh of promise, And have made us to our Elohim (‫ )אלהים‬melekhim and kohenim: and we shall reign on the earth.And has made us melekhim and Kohenim to Elohim (‫ )אלהים‬and his Father; to him [be] tifereth and dominion le olam va-ed. Amein.AmeinBe a Man of Purpose. The Apostle Paul in his epistles revealed himself to be a man marked by intensity of purpose. Being filled and controlled by the Ruakh of YHWH (Yahuah), he embraced the purpose of YHWH (Yahuah). Here in the actual words of scripture are some of the deep longings of his heart. That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death" That I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of HaMashiyach Yahu(ah)shua" "I ammade all things to all men, that I might by all means save some"I long to see you, that I mayimpart unto you some Spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established" What are the objects that we set before us in our lives? Are we anything like the Apostle Paul? Or do we fritter away our lives, pursuing little objects of pleasure, or of present and temporal gain in the world? Let us each seriously consider this matter. F. B. Hole Shemot 19:6 And ye shall be unto Me a Mamlakah Kohenim, and an Kadosh nation. These [are] the Devarim which thou shalt speak unto the Benai YY’Isra’EL.
  • 6. 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 YHWH, 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 Heprepares to bring her into the covenant of betrothal at Sinai, He wants her to have no doubtthat He loves no one but her. He came to Egypt to get her, but did not stay; there were otherElohim in place there. He fought them for her, but has now carried her to His own home. (At this time, Sinai was His special dwelling place.) Since Yahu(ah)shua sent envoys to gatherthe lost sheep of the House of Y’Isra’EL back into covenant through his blood, the same holds true for us (1 Kefa/Peter 2:9). Priests: to help others approach YHWH. Y’Isra’EL had its own priests (literally, officiators), but as YHWHs firstborn, the entire people was called to be a priest, or light to the nations. We officiate on His behalf, not our own--not even for the sake of Y’Isra’EL as such, but for the sake of Tzion, which is Y’Isra’EL as joined together with YHWH. And this is not a prophecy or a promise, but a command. It will not just fall into place if we wait long enough; we have to do what must be cone (v. 5) to make it a reality. Kórinthos bet 3:2The only letter of commendation we need is you yourselves. Your lives are a letter written inour hearts, all men can read it and recognize our good work among you. The law (torah) ofYHWH (Yahuah) is written on our hearts, and the love of Yahu(ah)shua shed abroad there. Ivrim 8:11Nor is it written on the tables of stone, as the law of YHWH (Yahuah) given toMosheh, but on the fleshy (not fleshly, as fleshliness denotes sensuality) tables of the heart,
  • 7. Eze 36:26. A new heart also will I give you, and a new Ruakh will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will putMy Ruakh within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes, and ye shall keep My shofatim, and do [them].“And I shall give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you. And I shall take the heartof stone out of your flesh, and I shall give you a heart of flesh and put My Spirit within you1 . And I shall cause you to walk in My laws and guard My right-rulings and shall do them. Heart of flesh: i.e., one that is sensitive and pliable, not callous and all but dead.Our hearts are humbled and softened to receive this impression, by the new-creating power of the Ruakh HaQodesh . And remember, as our whole dependence is upon YHWH ( Yahuah) through Eloneinu Yahu(ah)shua HaMashiyach, so the whole glory belongs to himalone. The letter killeth: the letter of the law is the ministration of death; and if we rest onlyin the letter of the gospel, we shall not be the better for so doing: but the Ruakh HaQodesh ( sacred Sprit) gives life Spiritual, and life eternal. The Old Covenant dispensation was the ministration of death, but the Renewed Covenant of life. The law made known sin, and the wrath and curse of YHWH ( Yahauh); it showed us a YHWH ( Yahauh) above us, and a YHWH ( Yahauh) against us; but the gospel makes known grace, and Emmanuel, YHWH ( Yahauh) with us. Therein the righteousness of YHWH ( Yahauh) by faith is revealed;and this shows us that the just shall live by his faith; this makes known the grace and mercy of YHWH ( Yahauh) through Eloneinu Yahu(ah)shua HaMashiyach, for obtaining the forgiveness of sins and eternal life. The gospel so much exceeds the law in glory, that iteclipses the glory of the legal dispensation. But even the Renewed Covenant will be a killingletter, if shown as a mere system or form, and without dependence on YHWH ( Yahauh) the Ruakh HaQodesh, to give it a quickening power. Yochanan 4:24 For YHWH is Ruakh , so those who worship Him must worship him in Ruakh and Emet? "YHWH ( Yahauh) is Ruakh" means he is not a physical being limited to one place. He is present everywhere, and he can be worshiped anywhere, at any time. It is not where we worship that counts, but how we worship. Rhomaios 8:26
  • 8. Likewise the Ruakh also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray foras we ought: but the Ruakh itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Teaches us the words of Yahu(ah)shua Yochanan 14:26But the Comforter, [which is] the Ruakh HaQodesh (sacred Ruakh), whom the Father willsend in My name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. and tells us we are loved Rom_5:5 And tikvah maketh not ashamed; because the love of Elohim (‫ )אלהים‬is shed abroad in our hearts by the Ruakh HaQodesh(Sacred Ruakh) which is given unto us.Disappoint us: put us to shame by being proven false. (Stern; this juxtaposition of hope, avoidance of shame, and “pouring out” alludes to Yirm./Jeremiah 17:13O YHWH (‫ ,)יהוה‬the mikveh Yisrael, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, [and] they thatdepart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken YHWH (‫ ,)יהוה‬the fountain of living waters. And Yochanan 7:37-38; 8:7-9)In the last day, that great [day] of the Chag, Yahu(ah)shua (‫ )ישוע‬stood and cried, saying:If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink. He who believes in Me, as the scripturesaid: "From his innermost being (belly, koilia) shall flow rivers of living water." But as they keep on questioning Him. He stood up and said to them: "Let him who is with chet (sin) among you be the first to throw a stone at her." Yochanan 8:7-9) Then He stoop down and went on writing on the ground with His finger.Then those whoheard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one with the oldest even to the last, Yahu(ah)shua (‫ )ישוע‬was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.To understand the meaning of what he was saying, its best to look at the context. For, you will see that she had just said to him Yochanan 4: 20
  • 9. Our ancestors worshiped here on this mountain, but you people say that Yerushalayim is where people must worship. This mountain: Mt. Grizim, the mountain of blessings Deut. 11:29; And it shall come to pass, when YEHOVAH Eloheicha has brought you in to the land whither you goest to yaresh (possess ‫ )ירׁש‬it, that you shall put the blessing upon Mount Gerizim, and the curse upon Mount Eival. Yehoshua 8:33 And all Yisrael, and their Ziknei (elders), and officers, and their judges, stood on this side the ark and on that side before ha kohenim the Leviim, which bare the Aron ha Brit (ark of the covenant) of YHWH (‫ ,)יהוה‬as well the stranger, as he that was born among them; halfof them over against mount Gerizim(cutting off), and half of them over against mount Ebal; as Mosheh the eved YHWH (‫ )יהוה‬had commanded before, that they should bless the people of Yisrael. that sits above Sh’khem Judges 9:7And when they told [it] to Yotam, he went and stood in the top of har Gerizim, and lifted uphis voice, and cried, and said unto them, Hearken unto me, ye men of Shkhem, that Elohim (‫ )אלהים‬may hearken unto you. opposite Mt. Eval, the mount of curses. When Menashe, the priest who was son-in-law of Sanballat (perhaps the Beth-Horonite governor of Samaria in the late 5th century B.C.E. Nehemyah 13:28, And [one] of benai Yoyada, ben Eli-Ashiv ha Kohen HaGadol, [was] son in Torah to Sanvalat the Horonite: therefore I chased him from me. but probably a later one by the same name), appointed by Daryush of Persia, was told bythe elders of Yerushalayim to put away his pagan wife (as in Ezra 10) or forfeit his position, Sanballat offered to build him his own temple just like the one at Yerushalayim, but on Mt. Grizim. (Josephus, Antiquities 11.302-311) This temple was excavated in 1995. Of course this earned them the disrespect of the Jews, as did the fact that they capitulated to the Greeks during the Maccabean revolt anddedicated it to Zeus Xenios. Yochanan Hyrcanus the Hashmonean captured Sh’khem in 128B.C.E. and destroyed the temple. However, they continued to worship at this site. In fact, in their version of the Scriptures, this was the tenth commandment! They say that it was Eli the priest who first moved the Tabernacle away from Sh’khem and therefore led Yehudah astray, so that it was the Jews, not they, who were the apostates!
  • 10. And Yahu(ah)shua then told her Yochnana 4:21 Then Yahu(ah)shua said to her, Believe me, woman; the time is coming when you wont worship the Father on this mountain or in Yerushalayim Note that He did not say this “hour” would last forever, for Yehezqel (Ezekiel) tells us the Temple in Yerushalayim will again be rebuilt and used during his coming kingdom.So what he was saying, was that the old form of worshiping YHWH (Yahuah) in designatedplaces (such as at the Temple in Yerushalayim) would soon end. And this was the setting for his words that followed where he said Yochanan 4: 23 But the time is coming (and its now) when true worshipers will worship the Father in Ruakh and truth… because the Father is searching for such people to worship Him. Yochanan 4:24For YHWH (Yahuah) is Ruakh, so those who worship Him must worship him in Ruakh and Emet (truth). Notice that in Greek, verse 24 reads: πνευμα ο θεος και τους προσκυνουντας αυτον εν πνευματι και αληθεια δει προσκυνειν, or,So, what did Yahu(ah)shua mean when he spoke of worshiping YHWH (Yahuah) in Ruakh πνευμα pneuma – as in pneumonia)?To arrive at the best meaning in this case, you have to think like ancient peoples who didnt have the benefit of our modern scientific discoveries; for to them, pneuma referred to themovement of air (as in wind or breath), which was a mysterious unseen power. And whenYahu(ah)shua spoke of YHWH (Yahuah) as being pneuma, he was simply saying that He is
  • 11. an unseen force he went on to argue that since YHWH (Yahuah) is an unseen force, suchtangible things as temples were no longer necessary, so YHWH (Yahuah) would thereafter be worshiped in unseen ways, without the need of tangible aids. Perhaps the best definition of what Yahu(ah)shua was saying can be found in his own words. For Yahu(ah)shua said Yochanan 17:17 Make them Sacred in the truth, for Your Word is the truth! And Paul wrote at Ephesians 6:17, Also, accept the helmet of salvation and the sword of [YHWH’s] Breath, Ephesians 6: 18,Always continue to pray and petition… always pray in Ruakh and stay awake… don’t give up! Also, keep petitioning on behalf of all the Sacred OnesSo from those scriptures, we see that truth is found in YHWH (Yahuah)s word (Scriptures), and that it is the sword of YHWH (Yahuah)s Breath (or Ruakh). And the conclusion that could be logically reached, is that Yahu(ah)shua was telling us that the presentarrangement for worshiping YHWH (Yahuah) must be based on our personal relationship with Him and on an intense study of the Scripture. The Emet within ruakh? The Ruakh HaQodeshs function equated the power of YHWH with Yahu(ah)shua Rhomaios 8:15 We have received the Ruakh of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. Rhomaios 8:4 That the tzedakah (righteous) of the Torah might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after theflesh, but after the Ruakh. The Ruakh HaQodesh itself beareth witness with our Ruakh, that we are the children of Elohim (‫:)אלהים‬And if children, then heirs; heirs of Elohim(‫,)אלהים‬and joint-heirs with HaMashiyachif so be that we suffer with [him], that we may be also glorified together
  • 12. For as many as are led by the Ruakh Elohim (‫ ,)אלהים‬they are the Benai Elohim (‫.)אלהים‬ Kórinthos Bet 3:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old covenant; which [veil] is done away in HaMashiyach It is the Ruakh HaQodesh who causes a person to understand and believe thatYahu(ah)shua HaMashiyach is the fulfillment of the law, in other words he kept his fatherscommandments, bring us back to our father, for by the sin of Adamah we were lost, but by the saving grace of YHWH ( Yahuah) the door is open Kórinthos Bet 3:2The only letter of commendation we need is you yourselves. Your lives are a letter written in our hearts, all men can read it and recognize our good work among you. Kórinthos Bet 3:6 He has also qualified us to be ministers of a renewed covenant, a Spiritual promise, not a written one. Clearly, what was written brings death, but the Ruakh brings life. Kórinthos Bet 3:8 How shall not the ministration of the Ruakh be rather glorious? Yahu(ah)shua
  • 13. Eloneinu Yahu(ah)shua HaMashiyach In His Name blessed be, in His name YHWH be with you. and they answered him, YHWH bless you. " Be not blind to the truthAnd, hinnei, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Yahu(ah)shua ( ‫ ) יהושע‬passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O YHWH, [thou] Ben David. AndYahu(ah)shua 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 Yahu(ah)shua hadcompassion [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 nätzräya Remember 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
  • 14. Freely ye have received, freely give A rule necessary, and of great extent. A servant in the Gospel Vineyard, thoughworthy 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 The Everlasting Covenant is The Sabbath Eloneinu Yahu(ah)shua HaMashiyach be with your Ruakh
