Repentance

  1. 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”] I AM My Memorial for generation after generation.” Shemot 3:13-16 This is MY NAME forever, I AM / WILL BE WHAT I AM / WILL BE:
  2. 2. "And 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, "I am [ehyeh] has sent me to you." 'and YHWH said further to Mosheh, 'now you are to say to the sons of Y’isra’EL, "YHWH, 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." ' "Shemoth 6:3," 'and I appeared to Abraham, to 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. Yahu(ah)shua
  3. 3. Ivrim 6:1 Therefore leaving the elementary principles of HaMashiyach, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward Elohiyim, Acts 2:38 Then Kefa (‫)פטרוס‬ said unto them, Teshuvah, and be immersed every one of you in the Name of Yahu(ah)shua HaMashiyach for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Ruakh HaQodesh. Be immersed: a ritual statement of intention and commitment to follow not only YHWH but also the king that He has established.
  4. 4. Take away any of these and the kingdom will not exist The king of kings will rule with his people in the kingdom of YHWH, its a righteous kingdom, chartered by his laws ( torah) The Torah is the Book of Life, the written word of YHWH, who became the living (key) word of YHWH in Yahu(ah)shua HaMashiyach Tehillim 2:6 Yet have I set My King upon My Tziyon Har Kadosh. No one else's opinion matters. They have no authority to overrule His choice of who is to be king. Because thine heart was tender, and thou hast humbled thyself before YHWH, when thou heardest what I spake against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, that they should become a desolation and a curse, and hast rent thy clothes, and wept before me; I also have heard thee, saith YHWH. Behold therefore, I will gather thee unto thy fathers, and thou shalt be gathered into thy grave in peace; His sacred ruakh overwhelms me with his tender loving kindness These words touch my Ruakh so much „ I cried out to the father)
  5. 5. Repentance is accompanied by a commitment to change, turning toward righteousness and away from unrighteousness And Elohiyim saw their works, that they turned from their evil way ;and Elohiyim repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not. He see,s our humility and commitment to turn away from evil. And so, repentance is actually a 'work' But does YHWH (Yahu(ah)) repent also? Consider for a moment that YHWH (Yahu(ah)) has a certain standard of righteousness. When man goes 'against' that standard of righteousness it is likened unto a man walking in the face of a mighty wind. he changed direction and goes with the wind that was at one time against him. YHWH (Yahu(ah)) does not change, His standard of righteousness,
  6. 6. In our repentance YHWH (Yahu(ah)) requires humility and true sorrow for one's sins. But let it be clear that sorrow is not repentance. Some would say they are sorry for their sins but it produces nothing. True repentance starts with sorrow and produces good works. Paul, when he wrote to the Corinthians in his first letter rejoiced to see their sorrow turn to true repentance. When he wrote them in his second letter, he noted: 2 Corinthians 7:8 For though I caused you sorrow by my letter, I do not regret it; though I did regret it-- for I see that that letter caused you sorrow, though only for a while I now rejoice, not that you were made sorrowful, but that you were made sorrowful to repentance; for you were made sorrowful according to {the will of} Elohiyim, in order that you might not suffer loss in anything through us. For the sorrow that is according to Elohiyim produces a repentance without regret, leading to salvation; but the sorrow of the world produces death.For behold what earnestness this very thing, this sorrow according to Elohiyim, has produced in you: what vindication of yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what longing, what zeal, what avenging of wrong! In everything you demonstrated yourselves to be innocent in the matter. Yeshayahu 55:7
  7. 7. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto YHWH (YAHU(AH)), and he will have mercy upon him; and to our Elohiyim, for he will abundantly pardon. YirmeYahu 3:12 Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith YHWH (YAHU(AH)); and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith YHWH ( YAHU(AH)), and I will not keep anger for ever. North: i.e., toward Ashur (Assyria), by whom the Northern Kingdom had been exiled. Note that the unfaithfulness of Yehudah (v.11) is one reason He has had mercy on the Northern Kingdom. Here He uses the same shock treatment as in Yahshua’s parables of the two sons Mat. 21:29 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. and the P’rush and the Tax-Collector Luke 18:14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified [rather] than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbles himself shall be exalted. , and Paul’s comments in Rhomaios 1-2 about the Gentiles proving to be more obedient to the Torah’s demands, though they had turned away from the written Torah. The intent is to provoke Yehudah to jealousy. Deut. 32:16;
  8. 8. They provoked him to jealousy with strange [gods], with abominations provoked they him to anger. Hirsch: "They made Him feel His rights had been violated." Disgusting things: idols and the lewd and often homosexual rites that accompanied many of them. Rom. 11:11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? Let it never be: but [rather] through their fall salvation [is come] unto the Goyim, for to provoke them to jealousy. Slipping: a non-mortal false step. Provoke them to jealousy: an allusion to Deut. 32:21, as in 10:19. Salvation came to the Gentiles: Aramaic, their own life becomes to the people for their jealousy. Tehillim 34:18 YHWH (YAHU(AH)) is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite Ruakh (Spirit). Tehillim 51:17 The sacrifices of Elohiyim are a broken Ruakh (Spirit): a broken and a contrite heart, O Elohiyim, thou wilt not despise. Yeshayahu 66:1 Thus saith YHWH ( YAHU(AH)), The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? My footstool: or, place for My feet, asin Eden and the camp of Israel, where He walked. Beresheet. 3:8
  9. 9. And they heard the voice of YHWH (‫)יהוה‬ Elohim (‫)אלהים‬ walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of YHWH (‫)יהוה‬ Elohim (‫)אלהים‬ amongst the trees of the garden. Aramaic, like a highway before Me. Where? Beresheet. 28:22 And this stone, which I have set [for] a pillar, shall be Elohim (‫')אלהים‬s house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto you. answeres the question. Yeshayahu 66:2 For all those things hath mine hand made, and those things have been, saith YHWH ( YAHU(AH)): but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite Ruakh (Spirit), and trembleth at my word. Joel 2:13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto YHWH (YAHU(AH)) your Elohiyim: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. Tear your heart: The heart is a muscle. Tearing a muscle makes it grow back stronger and more full. YHWH takes a fatherly approach here rather than a motherly; He lets us experience the pain so we will remember not to repeat the same error. Not your clothes: Do not show the outward signs of mourning if you are not actually contrite. This is Yom Kippur language. Those of us raised on television and movies have learned to be actors, but YHWH does not want obedience to His commandments pretended. We cannot make things right merely by saying, “I’m sorry.” Requiring accountability for our actions is the way of love, because we thus help the wrongdoer make things right again. The one who was wronged has the responsibility to rebuke and thereby teach, and both parties come out better. This pattern fosters intimacy between Israelite brothers. Someone else is sharing the same burden. But Paul warns us to be sure
  10. 10. the one doing the correcting is also solidly on his own path of repentance so he does not fall into the same temptation. Gal. 6:1-8 Slow to anger: literally, long of nose. Remember how Nin’veh responded to Yonah and how his prophecy was not carried out for that reason; some prophecies are contingent on our response: Those that say that we are saved only by raw belief and not by faith accompanied by works of repentance, humility and commitment to change are making a serious mistake!! And it is false to teach that Paul never believed in a working faith: Acts 26:19 Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision: But shewed first unto them of Demeshek, and at Yerushalayim, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to YHWH ( YAHU(AH)), and do works meet for repentance. Works 'meet' for repentance meaning 'works worthy or befitting of repentance'. While it is truth that we are saved by grace it is also truth that we are saved by grace because we have REPENTED. And we should continue to do works worthy of repentance. Now that we have established some meaning behind the word 'repent', the question should be asked "What exactly are we supposed to be repenting of?" 'Our sins' says the multitude. Ezekiel 18:20
  11. 11. The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. 21 - But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. He cannot rest on his father’s laurels, as was seen in the cases of Aharon Lev. 10 Eli 1 Shmuel 2:22ff, and David 1 Kings 1:5-6 for a few examples. But what is sin? What is righteousness? What do the scriptures say? The scriptures say that keeping the Torah/LAW is righteousness. Deuteronomy 6:25 And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before YHWH ( YAHU(AH)) our Elohiyim, as he hath commanded us. It will serve as righteousness for us: LXX, "there will be mercy for us"; Aramaic, "it will be to our merit". This flies in the face of what the Church
  12. 12. teaches—“He did it so we don’t have to.” This is an example of what Kefa said about the unlearned and unstable twisting Paul’s words. 2 Kefa/Peter 3:16 As also in all [his] letters, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as [they do] also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. But Avraham’s faith was counted as righteousness. Beresheet. 15:6 And he believed in YHWH (‫;)יהוה‬ and he counted it to him for Tzedakah. In contrast to the too-easily-misunderstood words in Galatians 3, the fact that we can demonstrate our faith only through our actions Yaaqov/James 2:14ff does not diminish Yahshua in any way. Obeying the Torah is walking in His righteousness as he did. The truth is, he did it so we can too. We have been paid for but not yet delivered; our righteous acts are the way we are “boxed up for delivery”, so we can get all the way Home. Notice it says "All these commandments" not just a part here or there. Tehillim 19:9 The fear of YHWH ( YAHU(AH)) is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of YHWH ( YAHU(AH)) are true and righteous altogether. His word is His law...His word is righteous!! Tehillim 119:123 Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of thy righteousness.
  13. 13. Tehillim 119:172 My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteousness. ALL His commandments...are righteousness. Tehillim 119:160 Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever. Every one?? forever? It was true even in Yahu(ah)shua's day The parents of Yochanan The Immerser... Luke 1:5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. - And they were both righteous before YHWH ( YAHU(AH)), walking in all the commandments and ordinances of YHWH ( YAHU(AH)) blameless. Elisheva: Gk., "Elisabeth", also the LXX transliteration of Elisheva in Ex. 6:23. 3 And Aharon took him Elisheva, daughter of Ammiynadab, sister of Nahshon, to wife; and she bare him Nadav, and Avihu, 'El`azar, and Itamar. It means "Elohiyim made an oath". Her husband's name (Zekharyah) means "YHWH remembers". Put together, their offspring is a beautiful picture of Elohiyim's faithfulness to His promise. Course of duty: The "rotation or class of the priests' service at the Temple, as distributed by families" (Strong), according to the 24 divisions that David had set up 1 Chron. 24:4ff; And there were more chief men found of Benai Eli'ezer than of Benai Itamar; and [thus] were they divided. Among Benai Eli'ezer [there were] sixteen chief
  14. 14. men of the Beit [their] avot, and eight among Benai Itamar according to the Beit their avot. 2 Chron8:14. And he appointed, according to the order of David his father, the courses of the Kohanim to their service, and the Leviim to their charges, to praise and minister before the Kohanim, as the duty of every day required: the porters also by their courses at every gate: for so had David the man of Elohim (‫)אלהים‬ commanded. Each division discharged its duties for a whole week, and the courses ran twice a year. Aviyah's position was eighth 1 Chron. 24:10, The seventh to Hakkoz, *eighth to Aviyah, but his descendants served on the tenth week of the first cycle since all of the divisions served on the third week (Feast of Unleavened Bread) and the ninth (Shavuoth). (J. Good) Now it is certain that the scriptures teach that the opposite of righteousness is unrighteousness or sin. Rhomaios 6:15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under favor? By no means. 16 - Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? We are never “above” Torah, but we are “beside” it as its partners once we have internalized it. Gal. 3:19-4:7 Empowering favor: includes both amnesty for our failings, “grace” time bought for us to become what we had ceased to be, and positive encouragement by
  15. 15. which He motivates us to obey from the heart. This should result in fuller obedience than isolated, disjointed legalistic commands ever could prompt. Here we see that Sin and righteousness are opposites. Sin leads to death and obedience leads to righteousness. Here is another verse showing that sin is simply "unrighteousness." 1Yochanan 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin, and there is sin not leading to death. This brings us to the question of what exactly is sin? Well, if obedience to the law is righteousness...transgression of the law is sin/unrighteousness. 1Yochanan 3:4 – Whoever commits sin trangresses also the law, for sin is the transgression of the law. And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him. Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of YHWH (YAHU(AH)) was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. Whoever has been born of YHWH (YAHU(AH)) does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of YHWH ( YAHU(AH)). In this the children of YHWH (YAHU(AH)) and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of YHWH ( YAHU(AH)), nor is he who does not love his brother. 1Yochanan 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin, and there is sin not leading to death.
  16. 16. So again, clearly transgression of the law is sin... obedience to His law is righteousness Let us look at verse 4 again: 1Yochanan 3:4 Whoever commits sin trangresses also the law, for sin is the transgression of the law. According to Strong's greek lexicon, the word that is translated "transgression of the law" here means... Anomia, From 459; illegality, i.e. in violation of the law or (gen.) wickedness There is a fascinating word study that can be done when we examine all the verses that this word is translated to. So now that we know what sin is, what about all those that seem to say His law need not be kept by His people? Surely no, His law is what tells us what sin is! So all the scriptures that we see that tell us to repent..to turn away from sin, to live righteously.. We should know that the very definition of living righteously is to live according to His law. But have we not failed? His law includes a provision for that also! It's called MERCY. YHWH ( Yahu(ah)) is righteous, therefore He has to have mercy! Being merciful is a part of being righteous.. and mercy is a part of His law! Matthiyahu 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone "The weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith" Not only is mercy a part of the law, but it is one of the 'weightier matters of the law'! But did Yahu(ah)shua condemn them in this verse for keeping the finer points? No, He said these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone! We also must practice mercy! But on some, (YHWH ( Yahu(ah)) knows them) mercy doesn't work because they don't care
  17. 17. Yeshayahu 26:10 Let favour be shewed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of YHWH ( YAHU(AH)). In a land where...: or "in a land of honesty", "rightness", "straightness". In Yahshua's Kingdom, where all is indeed put right, and there is no injustice or any reason to complain, there will still be some who test His resolve Zech. 14:18 And if the family of Mitzrayim go not up, and come not, that [have] no [rain]; there shall be the plague, wherewith YHWH (‫)יהוה‬ will smite the goyim that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. and who rebel at the end when haSatan is loosed and their true colors show up Rev. 20:7ff, And when the thousand years are expired, satan shall be loosed out of his prison, though suppressed for a thousand years! They will CONTINUE to transgress His law, despite the mercy shown. We see many examples of this today. We hear plenty of messages from mainstream Christianity telling us about His grace and mercy... And that's great...but There are but very few messages on REPENTING and living righteously by living according to His commandments! Some even go so far to say that His law is a burden and need not even be kept! This is soo far from the truth! It is hasatan's grand deception! 2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. Guess what word "iniquity" comes from in this verse? You guessed it, ANOMIA (violation/transgression of the law in 1Yochanan 3:4!) 2 Thessalonians 2:8
  18. 18. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom Yahu(ah)shua shall consume with the Ruakh (Spirit) of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause YHWH ( YAHU(AH)) shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. If they loved not the truth.. if instead they had pleasure in unrighteousness.. And unrighteousness is sin and sin is transgression of the law.. then the fact remains that most people who accept the Messiah are NOT FULLY REPENTING. Yet many say to me, oh look at all the wonderful miracles that are done! How can all these people be deceived, do not the miracles testify that they are walking in righteousness and are accepted by YHWH ( Yahu(ah))? Some are... But let's remember Yahu(ah)shua's words: Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Rabbi, Rabbi, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Rabbi, Rabbi, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
  19. 19. There is that word again..anomia. The same word used in 1Yochanan 3:4...transgression of the law! Do not be deceived by the so called miracles. On judgment day, they mean NOTHING. Revelations 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of YHWH ( YAHU(AH)) and the faith of Yahu(ah)shua. However... Let us remember that we have not been perfect. Yahu(ah)shua was and is perfect, therefore since we have sinned by transgressing the law (Yes, we all have!!), it is thru Yahu(ah)shua that we are made righteous! Rhomaios 5:18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19 - For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Demonstrates: proves His point in the clearest and most coherent way, setting several ideas side by side and presenting them so as to introduce people to a new way of seeing Him. Isn't this awesome!?!! HalleluYah! YHWH ( Yahu(ah)) not only gives us righteous commandments that teach us how to love one another and to love Him but He also has given us His SON who has redeemed us, sanctified us and washed away our sins so that we are pure and blameless in His sight! Not only that, He gave us His Son to be our example of HOW to keep His commandments! What a blessing, HalleluYah!! Now we don't need to walk around in gloom for our past failures to live according to His law but now we are free...free...FREE...TO.... Transgress His law again???? That is what is taught by many and it is total falsehood :(( Is that not insulting the Ruakh (Spirit) of grace?
  20. 20. Rhomaios 6:15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under favor? By no means. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? We are never “above” Torah, but we are “beside” it as its partners once we have internalized it. Gal. 3:19-4:7 Empowering favor: includes both amnesty for our failings, “grace” time bought for us to become what we had ceased to be, and positive encouragement by which He motivates us to obey from the heart. This should result in fuller obedience than isolated, disjointed legalistic commands ever could prompt. Let us show our thanksgiving and love for Him by truly repenting and hungering and thirsting for righteousness by Keeping His commandments as He has said! Let's bear fruits worthy of repentance. When we see something in His law that we need to be doing, we need to get on our knees and repent right then and there! David did not delay when he was shown his sin. We should not either. YHWH ( Yahu(ah)) has promised to lead us in that path of righteousness when we seek: Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of YHWH ( YAHU(AH)), and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 6 - Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Kingdom: or dominion. Righteousness: in this context, it probably refers to meeting others' needs (see note on 6:1), though it may apply more generally. Let us live according to the Ruakh (Spirit), Yahu(ah)shua's words are Ruakh (Spirit)!
  21. 21. Yochanan 6:63 It is the Ruakh (Spirit) that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are Ruakh (Spirit), and they are life. Yahu(ah)shua is the word and anyone who say that ANY part of His word doesn't matter today might as well be saying that Yahu(ah)shua doesn't matter. The law IS Ruakh (Spirit)ual! Rhomaios 7:14 For we know that the law is Ruakh (Spirit)ual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. His word is Ruakh (Spirit), let us not fail to live according to the Ruakh (Spirit) but let us die to the flesh Rhomaios 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Ruakh (Spirit) the things of the Ruakh (Spirit). 6 - For to be carnally minded is death; but to be Ruakh (Spirit)ually minded is life and peace. 7 - Because the carnal mind is enmity against YHWH ( YAHU(AH)): for it is not subject to the law of YHWH ( YAHU(AH)), neither indeed can be. 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 not doing so. Living according to Ruakh (Spirit): letting their human Ruakh (Spirit)s, revived by being reconnected to YHWH's Ruakh (Spirit), be united into one operating force, thus pursuing the things of the Ruakh (Spirit) realm. But hasatan has deceived the whole world into thinking that it is only the New Testament that defines what is right and what is wrong. A major problem with that is the New Testament was never even written when Kepha/Peter, Phillip, Paul, Barnabas, Yochanan, James and all the other men of YHWH ( Yahu(ah)) were telling people to repent! People in those days couldn't just turn to the New
  22. 22. Testament to understand what sin was so what did they have to look at? Paul said it well: 2Timothy 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Yahu(ah)shua ha Mashiach. 16 - All scripture is given by inspiration of YHWH ( YAHU(AH)), and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 - That the man of YHWH ( YAHU(AH)) may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. In this passage, the Sacred Scriptures carried 7 characteristics: To make one wise unto salvation given by inspiration of YHWH ( Yahu(ah)) All scripture is profitable for doctrine All scripture is profitable for reproof All scripture is profitable for correction All scripture is profitable for instruction in righteousness Knowledge of scripture causes one to be perfected and equipped/furnished for applying good works What did Yahu(ah)shua say about the law and the prophets?
  23. 23. Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. I have come: a Hebrew idiom for "my purpose is". To give them their fullest meaning: as seen by the rest of this discourse, where He expands on the common interpretations of his day to get to the heart of the matter. "Fulfill" (or complete) was also a technical term used by rabbis to describe a correct interpretation, which "established" it. He reveals what YHWH really intended by the commandments by setting forth specific cases--a common rabbinic method. In Mattithyahu he reiterates and amplifies on each of the ten commandments. Yodh: the smallest Hebrew letter, but by no means insignificant. Taga: a diacritic notation over some letters to add nuances of intonation. Du Tillet Heb., one hook. Peshitta Aramaic, stroke. Shem-Tov Heb., not one letter or dot...because all will be fulfilled. Teachers of others incur the stricter judgment. Yaaqov/James 3:1 Compare Deuteronomy 4:2. Therefore, let us seek diligently the commandments of YHWH ( Yahu(ah)) and walk according to the light He has given us. Don't let those who break even the least of the commandments and teaches men so deceive us into following their example. The Ultimate Example given for us is Yahu(ah)shua, and He didn't fail to do even one jot or tittle of YHWH ( Yahu(ah))'s law! And when we do fail, do not forget the One who knows what we are going through!
  24. 24. Hebrews 4:15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Weakness: or defeat; Aramaic, weariness. I.e., the fact that we are worn down by something that is aiming to defeat us. Praise YHWH ( Yahu(ah))! Like David, I have found this to be true of YHWH ( Yahu(ah)) our Elohiyim: Tehillim 23:3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Truly, He has done this. For His name's sake. He doesn't want people who are seeking Him and are called by His name to be lead into unrighteousness, He loves His name. HalleluYah because I do too! We must not be afraid of those who call you a legalist and condemn you for trying to walk as Yahu(ah)shua walked, if it is out of love for HIM, their condemnation is not from YHWH ( Yahu(ah)). Where do we ever see YHWH ( Yahu(ah)) condemning someone for TRULY repenting and walking in righteousness by doing as He commanded? Yahu(ah)shua is the example, if He kept the Sabbath and you do not, REPENT and KEEP IT. If He kept the feast days and you do not, REPENT and KEEP THEM. If He kept ANY of the commandments that you do not, by all means REPENT and DO THEM....surely YHWH ( Yahu(ah)) will be with you! Yochanan 8:29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. May we always do those things that please Him. And may YHWH ( Yahu(ah)) bless you and grant you peace and truth!
  25. 25. Yahu(ah)shua 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 truth And, hinnei, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Yahu(ah)shua ( ‫יהושע‬ ) passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O YHWH, [thou] Ben David. And Yahu(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 had
  26. 26. 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 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 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 a man to traffic with gifts which he pretends, at least, to have received from the Ruakh HaQodesh, 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
