What is Belief

  1. 1. Zekeniam Y’ISCHRaEL 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,
  2. 2. YaHuWaH, ALuaHiYM of your father’s Abraham, Yitzchak [Isaac], and Ya’aqob [Jacob], has sent me to you. This is my name forever, and this is my memorial for generation to generation." and I appeared to Abraham, to Yitzchak, andto 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
  3. 3. [Al-u-heem - ALHYM] means "Mighty Ones“ or "Power" Qadosh means Set-apart, Pure. Kodesh (Qodesh) also means "Set-apart"Ruwach (Spirit) is the Ibry (Hebrew) name for His "Presence", pictured as the Counselor, Helper, and Advocate, the One Who "proceeds from the Father" Teh 27:5For in the day of trouble He will keep me secretly in His booth. In the cover- ing 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 pro-tected, pray, and hear from Yahuahshua. Knowing there is such a place is amatter of faith. Going back time and again, thats a matter of building a rela- tionship. You need not have an advanced degree in any subject, need not
  4. 4. have memorized Scripture from beginning to end, but instead be aware the YaHuWaH of Y’ISCHRa’EL 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 to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Most certainly, I tell you, they have received their reward.But you, when you pray, enter into your inner chamber, and having shut your door, pray to your Father Who is in secret, and your Father Who sees in se- cret 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.
  5. 5. The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore when your eye is good, your whole body is also full of Light; but when it is evil, your body also is full of darkness. Therefore see whether the light that is in you isn’t darkness. If therefore your whole body is full of Light, having no part dark, it shall bewholly 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 Ru- wach 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 andGentile together. We do this because that is what the Bible does. 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. Ivrim11:1 What is belief? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see. Ivrim11:2 YaHuWaH gave His approval to people in days of old because of their belief.
  6. 6. The beginning point of faith is believing in YaHuWaHs character: He is who he says. The end point is believing in YaHuWaHs promises: He will do what he says.When we believe that YaHuWaH will fulfill his promises even though we dont see those promises materializing yet, We demonstrate true faith Ivrim11:3 By belief we understand that the Ages were prepared by the Word of ALuaHiYM, and that things seen originated from those not seen. The phrase "things not seen" is literally "things not yet seen."Faith is the substance of what you know is coming your way, even though it is not yet seen. Faith isnt wishful thinking. No, It is based upon the Word of YaHuWaH, faith says, "Whether I see it presently, understand it intellectually, or experience it immediately, I know what YaHuWaH says Hell do, He will do." The things unseen, as distinguished from the things hoped for, are, in an extended sense, the creation of the world from nothing, the destruction of the world by the deluge, the miraculous conception of YaHuWaHshua, hisresurrection from the dead, his ascension to glory, his mediation at the righthand of YaHuWaH, his government of the universe, etc., etc., all which we asfirmly believe on the testimony of YaHuWaH’s word as if we had seen them.. But this faith has particular respect to the being, goodness, providence, grace, and mercy of YaHuWaH, as the subsequent verses sufficiently show. Faith is confidence in the trustworthiness of YaHuWaH. It is the conviction that what YaHuWaH says is true and that what He promises will come to pass.Faith must have some revelation from YaHuWaH, some promise of YaHuWaHas its foundation. It is not a leap in the dark. It demands the surest evidence
  7. 7. in the universe, and finds it in the word of YaHuWaH. It is not limited to possibilities but invades the realm of the impossible. Someone has said, Faith begins where possibilities end. If its possible, then theres no glory for YaHuWaH in it.” Faith= BeliefFAITH, n. [L. fides, fido, to trust; Gr. to persuade, to draw towards any thing, to conciliate; to believe, to obey. In the Greek Lexicon of Hederic it is said,the primitive signification of the verb is to bind and draw or lead, as signifies a rope or cable. But this remark is a little incorrect. The sense of the verb,from which that of rope and binding is derived, is to strain, to draw, and thus to bind or make fast. A rope or cable is that which makes fast. Heb.] Belief; the assent of the mind to the truth of what is declared by another, resting on his authority and veracity, without other evidence; the judgment that what another states or testifies is the truth. I have strong faith or no faith in the testimony of a witness, or in what a historian narrates. The assent of the mind to the truth of a proposition advanced by another; belief, or probable evidence of any kind. In theology, the assent of the mind or understanding to the truth of what YaHuWaH has revealed. Simple belief of the scriptures, of the being and perfections of YaHuWaH, and of the existence, character and doctrines of YaHuWSHuWaH, founded on the testimony of the sacred writers, is calledhistorical or speculative faith; a faith little distinguished from the belief of the existence and achievements of Alexander or of Cesar. Evangelical, justifying, or saving faith, is the assent of the mind to the truth of divine revelation, on the authority of YaHuWaHs testimony, accompanied with a cordial assent of the will or approbation of the heart; an entire confidence or trust in YaHuWaHs character and declarations, and in thecharacter and doctrines of YaHuWSHuWaH, with an unreserved surrender ofthe will to his guidance, and dependence on his merits for salvation. In other words, that firm belief of YaHuWaHs testimony, and of the truth of the gospel, which influences the will, and leads to an entire reliance on YaHuWSHuWaH for salvation. Being justified by faith.
  8. 8. Rom 5. Qualifications for Kohen HaGadol For every Kohen HaGadol taken from among men is ordained for men in things [pertaining] to ALuaHiYM that he may offer both gifts and these zevakhim (sacrifices) for sins: Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity. And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also forhimself, to offer for sins. And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but hethat is called of ALuaHiYM as [was] Aharon. Everlasting Kohen after the order of Melek Tzaddik So also HaMaSHiYaCH glorified not himself to be made an kohen HaGadol; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, Today have I begotten Thee. As He saith also in another [place]:Thou [art] a Kohen forever after the order of Melek Tzaddik. Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and washeard in that he feared; Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience bythe things which he suffered; And being made perfect, He became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; Being designated by ALuaHiYM a kohen haGadol after the order of Melek Tzaddik.Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing. Spiritual ImmaturityFor when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which [be] the first principles of the oracles of ALuaHiYM ; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of solid food. For every one that useth milk [is] unskillful in the word tzedek: for he is ababe. But solid food belongeth to them that are of full age, [even] those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. Without faith it is impossible to please YaHuWaH. Heb 11. Now emunah (faith) is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of
  9. 9. things not seen. For by it the Sanhedrin obtained a good report. Through emunah we understand that the worlds were framed by the Dvar ALuaHiYM so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. By Faith we understand By emunah Hevel offered unto ALuaHiYM a more excellent sacrifice than Kain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, ALuaHiYM testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. By emunah Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because ALuaHiYM had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased ALuaHiYM. But without emunah (faith) [it is]impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to ALuaHiYM must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. By emunah Noach, being warned of ALuaHiYM of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his Bayit; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the Tzedek which is by emunah. Faithful Avraham By emunah Avraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, notknowing whither he went. By emunah he sojourned in the land of promise, as [in] a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Yitzchak and Yaakov, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath Yesod, whose builder and maker [is] ALuaHiYM. Through emunah also Sarah herself received strength to conceive zera, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she consider him faithful who had promised Therefore sprang there even of one, and him asgood as dead, [so many] as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sandwhich is by the sea shore innumerable. These all died in emunah, not havingreceived the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of [them], and embraced [them], and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that [country] from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better [country], that is, an heavenly: wherefore ALuaHiYM is not ashamed to be called their ALuaHiYM: for he hath prepared for them a city. The Faith of the forefathers
  10. 10. By emunah Avraham, when he was tried, offered up Yitzchak: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten [son], Of whom it was said, That in Yitzchak shall thy seed be called: Accounting that ALuaHiYM[was] able to raise [him] up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure. By emunah Yitzchak blessed Yaakov and Esav concerning things to come.By emunah Yaakov, when he was a dying, blessed both the banim Yosef; and worshipped, [leaning] upon the top of his staff.By emunah Yosef, when he died, made mention of the departing of the Benai Yisrael; and gave commandment concerning his bones. The Faith of MoshehBy emunah Mosheh, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw [he was] a proper child; and they were not afraid of the kings commandment. By emunah Mosheh, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Parohs daughter; Choosing rather to sufferaffliction with the people of ALuaHiYM than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of HaMaSHiYaCH greater riches than the treasures in Mitsrayim: for he had respect unto the recompense of the reward. By emunah he forsook Mitsrayim, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible. Through emunah he shomer the Pesach, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the bachor should touch them. By emunah they passed through the Yam Sukh as by Yabashah: which the Mitzrites assaying to do were drowned. By emunah thewalls of Yericho fell down, after they were compassed about shivat yamim. Byemunah the harlot Rahav perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with shalom. And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and [of] Barak, and [of] Shimshon, and [of] Yiphtah; [of] David also, and Shemuel, and [of] the Neviim: Who throughemunah subdued kingdoms, wrought tzedek, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: And others had trial of [cruel] mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: They were stoned,
  11. 11. they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted,tormented; (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and [in] mountains, and [in] dens and caves of the earth And these all, having obtained a good report through emunah, received not the promise: ALuaHiYM having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect. For we walk by faith, and not by sight. 2 Cor 5. For we know that if our earthly house of [this] mishkan were dissolved, we have a building of Aloha (‫ ,)אלוה‬the house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.5:2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our bayit which is from shamayim: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For we that are in [this] mishkan do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might beswallowed up of life. Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing [is] aloha (‫ ,)אלוה‬who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Ruwach.Therefore [we are] always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from YaHuWaH: For we halak by emunah, not by sight:We are confident, [I say], and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with YaHuWaH. Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of HaMaSHiYaCH;that every one may receive the things [done] in [his] body, according to that he hath done, whether [it be] good or bad. Knowing therefore the terror of YaHuWaH, we persuade men; but we aremade manifest unto aloha (‫ ;)אלוה‬and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences. For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf that ye may have somewhat to [answer] them which glory in appearance, and not in heart. For whether we be beside ourselves, [it is] to aloha (‫ :)אלוה‬or whether webe sober, [it is] for your cause. For the love of HaMaSHiYaCH constraineth us;because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And [that] he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto
  12. 12. themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known HaMaSHiYaCH after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we [him] no more. Therefore if any man [be] in HaMaSHiYaCH, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new. And all things[are] of aloha (‫ ,)אלוה‬who hath reconciled us to himself by YaHuWSHuWaH (‫ )יהושע‬HaMaSHiYaCH, and hath given to us the sherut haRitztzuy (the ministry of reconciliation); To wit, that aloha (‫ )אלוה‬was in HaMaSHiYaCH, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them;and hath committed unto us the Dvar HaRitztzuy (Message of Reconciliation).Now then we are ambassadors for HaMaSHiYaCH, as though aloha (‫ )אלוה‬did beseech [you] by us: we pray [you] in HaMaSHiYaCHs place, be ye reconciled to aloha (‫.)אלוה‬ With the heart man believeth to righteousness. Rom 10. The faith of the gospel is that emotion of the mind, which is called trust orconfidence, exercised towards the moral character of YHWH, and particularly of the Savior. Faith is an affectionate practical confidence in the testimony of YaHuWaH. Faith is a firm, cordial belief in the veracity of YaHuWaH, in all thedeclarations of his word; or a full and affectionate confidence in the certainty of those things which YHWH has declared, and because he has declared them. The object of belief; a doctrine or system of doctrines believed; a system of revealed truths received by NätzräyinThey heard only, that he who persecuted us in times past, now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed Gal 1. Paulos, a Shliach, (not of men, neither by man, but by the hand ofYaHuWSHuWaH (‫ )יהושע‬HaMaSHiYaCH, and ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬ha Avi, who raised him from the dead; And all the Achim which are with me, unto the assemblies of Galatia: ChenvChesed [be] to you and shalom from ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬ha Avi, and [from]ALuaHiYM YaHuWSHuWaH (‫ )יהושע‬HaMaSHiYaCH, Who gave himself for our
  13. 13. sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the ratzon ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬and Avinu: To whom [be] kavod le olam va ed. Amein. Only one Good news I marvel that how quickly you are being turned from the HaMaSHiYaCH who called you by His grace, to another good news which is not another; but there are some that are troubling you, and desire to pervert the good newsof HaMaSHiYaCH.But though we, or a Messenger from heaven, proclaim anyother good news unto you than that which we have proclaimed unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] proclaim any other good news unto you than that ye have received, let himbe accursed. For do I now persuade men or ALuaHiYM (‫ ?)אלהים‬or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the eved of HaMaSHiYaCH. Call to be the sent one But I certify you, achim that the good news which was proclaimed of me isnot after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught [it], but by the chazon (revelation) of YaHuWSHuWaH HaMaSHiYaCH. For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Yahadut (Judaism), how that beyond measure I persecuted the assembly of ALuaHiYM (‫ ,)אלהים‬and wasted it: And profited in the Yahuwdim religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of myfathers. But when it pleased ALuaHiYM (‫ ,)אלהים‬who separated me from my mothers womb, and called [me] by His Chen vChesed, To reveal His Son in me, that I should proclaim him among the Goyim; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood: Neither went I up to Yahrushalom to them which were Shluchim before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Demeskus. His contacts at Yahrushalom Then after shalosh shanim (three years) I went up to Yahrushalom to seeKefa, and abode with him fifteen days. But other of the Shluchim saw I none, save Yaakov achi Aloha. Now the things which I write unto you, behold, before ALuaHiYM (‫ ,)אלהים‬I lie not. Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and Kilikia; And was unknown by face unto the assemblies of YaHuWdaH which were in HaMaSHiYaCH: But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now proclaimeth the emunah which once
  14. 14. he destroyed. And they glorified ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬in me. The promises ofYaHuWaH, or his truth and faithfulness. shall their unbelief make the faith of YHWH without effect? Rom 3. What advantage then hath the Yahuwdim? or what profit [is there] of britmilah? Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of ALuaHiYM (‫ .)אלהים‬For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the emunah of ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬without effect? ALuaHiYM(‫ )אלהים‬forbid: yea, let ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬be true, but every man a liar; asit is written, you should be upright in your words and be innocent when they judge you. But if our unrighteousness commend the Tzedek of ALuaHiYM(‫ ,)אלהים‬what shall we say? [Is] ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man) ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬forbid: for then how shall ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬judge the world? But [you say] if through my falsehood ALuaHiYM (‫)אלהים‬s integrity is magnified and advertised and abounds to His glory, why am I still being judged as a sinner? And not [rather], (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? Whose damnation is just? What then? are we better [than they]? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Yahuwdim and Goyim, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is none tzadik, no, not one:There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after ALuaHiYM (‫.)אלהים‬They are all gone out of the way, they are together becomeunprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Their throat [is] anopen grave; with their languages they have used deceit; the poison asps [is] under their lips:Whose mouth [is] full of cursing and bitterness: Their feet [are] swift to shed blood: Destruction and misery [are] in their ways: And the way of shalom have they not known: There is no fear of ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬before their eyes.Now we know that what things soever the Torah saith, it saith to them who are under the Torah: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the worldmay become guilty before ALuaHiYM (‫ .)אלהים‬Therefore by the deeds of the Torah there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the Torah [is] the knowledge of sin. But now the Tzedek of ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬without theTorah is manifested, being witnessed by the Torah and the Neviim; Even the Tzedek of ALuaHiYM (‫[ )אלהים‬which is] by emunah of YaHuWSHuWaH
  15. 15. (‫ )יהושע‬ha HaMaSHiYaCH unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of ALuaHiYM (‫;)אלהים‬ Being justified freely by His unmerited favour through the redemption that is in HaMaSHiYaCH YaHuWSHuWaH (‫ :)יהושע‬Whom ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬hath set forth [to be] a propitiation through emunah in His blood, to declare his Tzedek for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance ofALuaHiYM (‫ ;)אלהים‬To declare, [I say], at this time His Tzedek: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in YaHuWSHuWaH (‫)יהושע‬ Where [is] boasting then? It is excluded. By what Torah? of works? Nay: but by the Torah of emunah. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by emunah without the deedsof the Torah.[Is he] the ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬of the Yahuwdim only? [is he] notalso of the Goyim? Yes, of the Goyim also: Seeing [it is] ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬is One, which shall justify the brit milah by emunah, and uncircumcision through emunah. Do we then make void the Torah through emunah? ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬forbid: yea, we uphold the Torah! An open profession of gospel truth. Your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. Rom 1. Paulos, an eved YaHuWSHuWaH (‫ )יהושע‬HaMaSHiYaCH, called [to be] a shaliach, separated unto the good news of ALuaHiYM (‫( ,)אלהים‬Which he had promised afore by His Neviim in the set apart Ketuvim,) Concerning His Ben YaHuWSHuWaH (‫ )יהושע‬HaMaSHiYaCH Aluheinu, which was made of the Zera Daviyd according to the flesh; And declared [to be] the BEN ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬with power, according to the spirit of set apartness, bythe resurrection from the dead: By whom we have received unmerited favour
  16. 16. and the calling of a shaliach, for obedience to the emunah among all nations, for His NAME: Among whom are ye also the called of YaHuWSHuWaH (‫)יהושע‬HaMaSHiYaCH: To all that be in Rhome, beloved of ALuaHiYM(‫ ,)אלהים‬called [to be] kedoshim: Chesed to you and shalom from ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬Avinu, and Adoneinu YaHuWSHuWaH (‫ )יהושע‬ha HaMaSHiYaCH. The Goyim need of tzedek First, I thank my ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬through YaHuWSHuWaH (‫)יהושע‬ HaMaSHiYaCH for you all, that your emunah is spoken of throughout the whole world. For ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬is my witness, whom I serve with my ruach in the good news of His Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my tefillot; Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬to come unto you. For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some mattanahruchanit (spiritual gift), to the end ye may be established; That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual emunah both of you and me.Now I would not have you ignorant, Achim (brethren), that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Goyim.I am meshubad (obligated) both to the Greeks, and to the barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise . So, as much as in me is, I am ready to proclaim the good news to you that are at Rome also. For I am not ashamed of the good news of HaMaSHiYaCH: for it is the power of ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Yehuda first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the Tzedek of ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by emunah. Sin will be punished For the wrath of ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬is revealed from heaven against alliniquity and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬is manifest in them; for ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬hath shewed [it] unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, beingunderstood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Elohei; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew ALuaHiYM (‫ ,)אלהים‬they glorified [him] not as ALuaHiYM (‫ ,)אלהים‬neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
  17. 17. And changed the glory of the uncorruptible ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of ALuaHiYM (‫)אלהים‬into a lie, and worshipped and served the HaBriah (Creation) more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amein.For this cause ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned intheir lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet And even as they did not like to retain ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬in [their] knowledge, ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of ALuaHiYM (‫ ,)אלהים‬despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the mishpat of ALuaHiYM (‫ ,)אלהים‬that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. A persuasion or belief of the lawfulness of things indifferent. Hast thou faith? Have it to thyself before YaHuWaH. Rom 14. Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, [but] not to doubtful disputations. For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs. Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬hath received him. Who art thou that judgest another mans servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬is able to make him stand. One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day [alike]. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. He that regardeth the day regardeth [it] unto
  18. 18. YHWH; and he that regardeth not the day, to YHWH he doth not regard [it]. He that eateth, eateth to YHWH, for he giveth ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬thanks; and he that eateth not, to YHWH he eateth not, and giveth ALuaHiYM(‫ )אלהים‬thanks. For none of us liveth to himself and no man dieth to himself. For whether we live, we live unto YHWH; and whether we die, we die unto YHWH: whether we live therefore, or die, we are YHWHs. For to this end ha HaMaSHiYaCH both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Master both of the dead and living. But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of ha HaMaSHiYaCH. For it is written, [As] I live, saith YHWH, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to ALuaHiYM (‫ .)אלהים‬So then every one of us shall give account of himself to ALuaHiYM (‫ .)אלהים‬Let us not therefore judge one another anymore: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumbling block or an occasion to fall in [his]brothers way. I know, and am persuaded by YHWH YaHuWSHuWaH (‫,)יהושע‬ that [there is] nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth anything to be unclean, to him [it is] unclean. But if thy brother be grieved with [thy] meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom ha HaMaSHiYaCH died. Let not then your good be evil spoken of: For the kingdom of ALuaHiYM (‫ )אלהים‬is not eat and drink; but tzedakah, and peace, and joy in Ruach Ha Kodesh. For he that in these things serveth ha HaMaSHiYaCH [is] acceptable to ALuaHiYM (‫ ,)אלהים‬and approved of men.Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another. For meat destroy not the work of ALuaHiYM (‫ .)אלהים‬All things indeed [are] pure; but [it is] evil for that man who eateth with offence. [It is] good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor [anything] whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak. Hast thou faith? have [it] to thyself before ALuaHiYM (‫.)אלהים‬ Happy [is] he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth. And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because [he eateth] not of faith: for whatsoever [is] not of faith is sin. Faithfulness; fidelity; a strict adherence to duty and fulfillment of promises. Her failing, while her faith to me remains, I would conceal. Children in whom is no faith. Deu 32.Ha azi (give ear) nu ha Shamayim, and I will devara (speak); and Shema, haeretz, the words of my mouth. My teaching shall drop as the rain, my speech
  19. 19. shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass: Because I will proclaim the Name of YHWH (‫:)יהוה‬ ascribe ye greatness unto Aluheinu. [He is] ha tzur (‫ ,)צּור‬His work [is] perfect: for all His ways [are] mishpat: a EL Emunah (faithfulness) andwithout iniquity, just and right [is] he. They have corrupted themselves, their spot [is] not [the spot] of his children: [they are] a dor ikesh u petaltol (a perverse and crooked generation).Do ye thus repay YHWH (‫ ,)יהוה‬O foolish people and unwise? [is] not he avicha [that] hath bought thee? Hath he not made thee, and established thee? Zakar the yemot olam (days of old), consider the years of many generations: ask avicha, and he will shew thee; thy Zekeniam, and they will tell thee. When ha Aloha (most high) divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the benai Adam, he set thebounds of the people according to the number of benai Yisrael. For YaHuWaH (‫)יהוה‬S portion [is] His people; Yaakov [is] the lot of his inheritance. He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye. As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: [So] YaHuWaH (‫ )יהוה‬alone didlead him, and [there was] no strange god with him. He made him ride on the high places of ha eretz, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the Tzur (‫ ,)צּור‬and oil out of the flinty Tzur (‫ ;)צּור‬Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of chittah (wheat); and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape. But Yeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered [with fatness]; then he forsook Aluah (‫[ )אלוּה‬which] made him, and lightly esteemed ha Tzur Yeshuah (‫ .)יׁשּועה‬They provoked him to jealousy with strange [gods], with abominations provoked they him to anger. They sacrificed unto devils, not to Aluah (‫ ;)אלוּה‬to gods whom they knew not, to new [gods that] came newly up, whom your fathers feared not. Of the Tzur(‫[ )צּור‬that] begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten AL that formed thee. And when YaHuWaH (‫ )יהוה‬saw [it], he abhorred [them], because ofthe provoking of his banim, and of his banot. And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end [shall be]: for they [are] a very froward generation, children in whom [is] no faith. They have moved Me to jealousy with [that which is] not AL; they have provoked Me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with [those which are] not apeople; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation. For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume ha eretz with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them. [They shall be] burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison
  20. 20. of serpents of the dust. The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling [also] with the man of gray hairs.I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men: Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, [and] lest they should say, Our hand [is] high, and YaHuWaH (‫ )יהוה‬hath not done all this. For they [are] a nation void of counsel, neither [is there any] understanding in them. O that they were wise, [that] they understood this, [that] they would consider their latter end! How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Tzur (‫)צּור‬ had sold them, and YaHuWaH (‫ )יהוה‬had shut them up? For their Tzur (‫)צּור‬ [is] not as our Tzur (‫ ,)צּור‬even our enemies themselves [being] judges. For their vine [is] of the vine of Sedom (‫ ,)סדם‬and of the fields of Amorah (‫ :)עמרה‬their grapes [are] grapes of gall, their clusters [are] bitter: Their wine [is] the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps. [Is] not this laid up in store with me, [and] sealed up among my treasures? To me [belongeth] vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in [due] time:for the day of their calamity [is] at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste. For YHWH (‫ )יהוה‬shall judge His people, and repent himself for his avadim, when he seeth that [their] power is gone, and [thereis] none shut up, or left. And he shall say, Where [are] their gods, [their] Tzur (‫ )צּור‬in whom they trusted, Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, [and] drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, [and] be your protection. See now that I, [even] I, [am] he, and [there is] no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither [is there any] that can deliver out of my hand. For I lift up my hand to shamayim, and say, I live forever. If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on mishpat; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me. I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; [and that] with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy. Rejoice, O ye nations, [with] hispeople: for he will avenge the blood of his avadim, and will render vengeanceto his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, [and] to his people. And Mosheh (‫ )מׁשה‬came and spake all the words of this song in the ears of the people, he, and Hoshea ben Nun. And Mosheh (‫ )מׁשה‬made an end of speaking all these words to all Yisrael: And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this Torah (‫.)ּתורה‬ For it [is] not a vain thing for you; because it [is] your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong [your] days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it. And YaHuWaH (‫ )יהוה‬spake unto Mosheh (‫ )מׁשה‬that selfsame day, saying, Get thee up into this mountain Abarim, [unto] mount Nebo, which [is] in the eretz Moav, that [is] over against Yericho; and behold the
  21. 21. eretz Kenaan, which I give unto benai Yisrael for a possession: And die in the mount whither thou goest up, and be gathered unto thy people; as Aharon thy brother died in mount Hor, and was gathered unto his people: Because ye trespassed against me among benai Yisrael at the waters ofMeribah-Kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin; because ye sanctified me not in the midst of benai Yisrael. Yet thou shalt see the land before [thee]; but thou shalt not go thither unto the land which I give benai Yisrael.

" Be not blind to the truth And, 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 called them, and said, what will ye that I shall do unto you they say unto Him, YaHuWaH, that our eyes may beopened. So YaHuWSHuWaH had compassion [on them], and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed 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 (spiritual work): what a scandal is it for a man to traffic with gifts which he pretends, at least, to have received from theRuwach 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
