Yom Teruah, The Feast of Trumpets, Is The Beginning Of The End??? Part One

Did you know that the Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruah), in Ancient Times, was understood, as the inauguration of a judgment process that began on that day and comes to completion on the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur)?  Yom Teruah, the Feast of Trumpets starts tomorrow, at 6pm, on Rosh Hashanah, the new year and runs for three days. 

The Feast of Trumpets / Yom Teruah is a yearly memorial of judgement, repentance and forgiveness through the mercy of Yahweh / Yah Ehyeh, by his son, Jesus /Y'shua. On the final day, a shofar (trumpet) is blown, in a unique way. The purpose of the day of blowing the shofar, is to alert and call one to repentance for past sins before Yom Kippur. 

In times past, the shofar sounding was used to:

- give a signal during time of war (Judges 3:27).
- proclaim the start and end of the Jubilee year (Lev. 25:9).
- anoint a new king during coronation service (1 Kings 1:34).
- regather the outcasts of Israel (Isa. 27:13).
- warn the people of danger (Amos 3:6).
- declare the arrival of the Messiah (Zech. 9:14).

Why is this year any different?

Well, it is interesting to note that within this year, there culminates some notables occurrences.

It's the end of the 70 year generation of the present state of Israel and the Year of Jubilee. It was in 1947, that the UN passed a resolution to grant the land of Israel, to the Jews, as their homeland. According to Torah, God's Law, all possessions should return to it's rightful owner. As a side note, twenty years, after the UN Resolution to grant Israel its land, in 1967, Jerusalem was returned to it's rightful owner, Israel. That, too, was a Year of Jubilee.

On Sept. 23, 2017, for the first time in 2000 years, the astronomical signs of Revelation 12 will occur.
Could the rest of the chapter be too far away?

What does it all mean?

With the last 20 years having been the greatest timespan ever for natural and manmade disasters and wars and rumors of war, one cannot deny the possibilities, which we will note over the next 30 days.

...and that's what you'll learn, When You Search For The Truth.

A Journey Into The Supernatural: The Seven Levels Of Scriptural Interpretation

Did you know that there are, at least, seven levels of scriptural interpretation? While other religious books have multiple levels of interpretation, the Bible sets itself way above the competition, showing that it is not only a Holy Book, but a supernatural message system, from God, himself.


While I will not take you into the weeds, I would like to show those who are interested, the seven levels, that is there, to help us dig deep into the Word of God, in order to edify ourselves and others. They are:

Literal: This is where you take the words in their usual or most basic sense, without metaphor or allegory. Reading, at the literal level, requires no special training. It says what it means and means what is says. Pretty straight-forward.

Metaphoric/Allegorical: Unfortunately, it is the level, which is most abused. It is a figure of speech in which a term or phrase is applied to something to which it is not literally applicable in order to suggest a resemblance. It is close to the Model level, but usually not an accounting of an actual event.

For example: The scriptures refer to God as Elohim, which means, "Gods". This doesn't mean that God is multiple individual gods, but is a metaphorical reference to his multidimensionality. Another great example is how God has chosen to reveal himself, such as the Father, Son, Holy Spirit, A Great Fortress, a Rock, the Breath, etc. Again, it is not that God is multiple persons or gods, it is God's way of showing his multidimensionality to a lesser dimensional creature, such as us humans.

Modeling: Where the story is true, but has a multidimensional depth, which has a different literal message. A great example of this is the story of Melchizedek. The story of Melchizedek is a real historical event, but points to the Messiah. Genesis 14, Hebrews 7. While Melchizedek was a real person, his attributes reveal the Messiah. You can also go to Melchizedek: King of Salem for the full story. 

Moralistic/Legalistic: A moral, ethical or legalistic teaching through literal straight-forward, allegorical or other means. Examples are Y'shua/Jesus' parables, Sermon on the Mount, The Law, etc.

In my opinion, the next three are BIGGIES. This is where the Bible goes light years beyond other supposed holy books and their claims of being from God.

Prophetic: Where the story or interpretation is prophetic, the foretelling of a future person or event. Another super example of this level can be found in Daniel chapter nine, where Daniel gives the exact day of the Messiah's first coming. Read about it here at: Daniel Foretold The Exact Date Of The Messiah's First Coming

Codal: One of my favorites, for it shows God goes above and beyond to reward the diligent reader. It also a fulfillment of God's promise to the Remnant, found in Proverbs 25:2.

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.

It's a scriptural excerpt where the individual words, when put together, gives a message, to the reader. A great example of this one can be found within the genealogy of Genesis 5. Go to the following link for a great example. Supernatural Messages Embedded Within The Scriptures Biblical Codes are part of this level, but one must remember the literal first level, before indulging.

Personal: This is where God speaks to us and gives us a personal message through his scriptures. Even though Peter warns us, 2 Peter 1, about personal interpretations of the scriptures, an in-depth reading of his warning shows that scripture must interpret scripture. Therefore, your personal message must not go outside or go against the literal interpretation.

Now, have fun. But, remember, as we dig deeper into God's Word, remember Acts 17:11. 

Received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if it is true.

Nehushtan: The Sin Of The Asherah Poles

Did you know that many Christians do not realize that they are guilty of the sin, known as Nehushtan, within the Jewish community ?

First a little background.

In the book of Bamidbar, Numbers, we find the story of when many Israelites were dying, because the sting of a serpent. As an interesting sidenote, the Hebrew rendering has them as flying fiery serpents.  Most scholars and Jewish and Christian scientists now believe they were the now extinct pterosaur, but that's another blog entry.

In this story, God tells Moses to set up a Pole, with a Brass Serpent on it. God told Moses and the Israelites that whoever looked upon it would not die. Bottom line: The serpent on the pole did not save them, but their faith, in what God said, did. As a side note, please keep in mind, that it has always been taught that the serpent represented their sin and the brass was judgement. Together, they are judged sin.


Fast forward to the time of Hezekiah, as documented in 2 Kings 18, we find that long after the Moses Serpent on the Staff incident, the Jews were not only still worshipping the original Serpent on the Staff, they were also erecting duplicates of the Serpent on the Staff and worshiping them. They were known as Asherah Poles. In obedience to YHWH, Hezekiah removed all the Asherah Poles.

Now, fast forward to the time of Y'shua, Jesus, specifically his conversation with Nicodemus, in John 3. Y'shua strangely mentions the Serpent on the Pole, as an old testament reference to his soon to be sacrifice. Why?

First and foremost, as a metaphoric reference/prophecy of a future pole sacrifice, with the judged sin of mankind upon it.

Second, so we would not make the same mistake that the Jews did and raise the Serpent (Judged Sin) on the Pole (Cross) higher than YHWH. 

Now, fast forward to today, look at the majority of modern day Christianity. They have taken the Cross with God's Son, who became our sin judged and raised him higher than God, himself. Yes, because of Y'shua's obedient unto death, he was elevated to be equal standing with God, becoming heir to the throne of David. However, there is rarely any reference to YHWH, our Father, within many Christian churchs. It all Jesus. Again, he has that God -Given priveledge to be worshipped, but not to the exclusion of his Father, our Father, who is in Heaven. The One and Only God.

That is Nehushtan: The Sin Of The Asherah Poles. Raising Y'shua, Jesus, higher than God himself, sometimes even eliminating God.

Are you guilty?

Hazon Gabriel, God Has A Way Of Authenticating His Truth!

Did you know that there are some who say that Y'shua, Jesus, made up the idea of a dying and resurrected Messiah? Most mainstream Jews and Muslims actually say the there is no scriptural or cultural evidence that shows a picture of the Messiah, resembling the Messianic picture put forth by Y'shua, Jesus, within the 1st century Middle East. However, a recent archeological find, found in the same area as the Dead Sea Scrolls, has shown that the idea of two separate Messiahs, a suffering and a victorious/conquering Messiah, was indeed prevalent, within the scriptural and cultural society of the Middle East, specifically, within Israel and her surrounding communities.

Found in 2000, Gabriel's Revelation, also called Hazon Gabriel or the Jeselsohn Stone, is a three-foot-tall (one metre) stone tablet with 87 lines of Hebrew text written in ink, containing a collection of short prophecies written in the first person and dated  to sometime within the  1st century BC.

Amazingly, one of the prophesies specifically foretells of a man who would be would be killed by the Romans and be  resurrected in three days. This would be a prophesy written up to 100 years before the time of Y’shua, Jesus, just as the Romans were beginning to expand their empire into the Middle East.

As a side note, for those who deny the scriptural evidence, try looking into Isaiah 53 and Psalm 22, as starters.

So, next time someone tries to tell you that Y'shua, Jesus, and his followers, tried to introduce a new type of Messiah or a new line of cultural or religious thought into the Jewish culture, during the 1st century, remind them of the Hazon Gabriel, and remind them of their true Jewish Roots.

Come Now, Let Us Reason Together! God Proven Logically.

Did you know that your inner thoughts prove that Satan is alive and well? It doesn't matter if you believe in God or not, everyone has problems doing things, that they know are the right things to do. Even if it's only something that you really want to do, disobedience is constantly being sowed within you. Think about it. This is true, even if you are trying to do something that only you feel is right. If you are true with yourself, you will admit there is always some force, which is in opposition to you.

The Bible calls that force by the name of Satan, the opposer, the railer, one that is known as the deceiver who leads humanity astray. The world and Satan will attempt to prove that Satan is a figment of the imagination. Again, think about it. That is exactly what you would expect a deceiver to do, to keep his reality in flux, just beyond the point of certified reality. Allowing you to admit to yourself that Satan is real, alive and well, would prove that God is real.

Isaiah 1:18 says:

Proceed logically and judge for yourself, says YHWH.

That's what God and his Word encourages you to do. That's what logic and your logical mind tells you to do, deep down inside. Isn't funny how there is a force telling you not to? Isn't the constant opposition, proof of the truth, that resides in logic?

...and that's what you'll find, When You Search For The Truth.

Big Pharma Are Drug Dealers That Practice Witchcraft???

Did you know that most Bible scholars translates the Greek word, Pharmakeia, as witchcraft? Therefore, every time you read witchcraft, in the Bible, it should be read as Pharmacology or Drug Dealer. That's right. Pharmekeia means those who use and/or administers drugs. This Greek word implies that Pharmacists, Drug Dealers and Drug Users are in the same boat. Furthermore, Galations 5:19-21 says that these individuals will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

So, does that mean that all Pharmacists, Drug Dealers and Drug Users practice witchcraft and are eternally damned? No, but they are precariously close to judgement for their actions. 

In addition, I do want to point out that this is another example of a so called scholars not knowing the language and translating, with their emotion or translating, without doing the necessary legwork, needed for a proper translation.

Now, let's look at an actual word of word translation of the same passage.

Now, works of the flesh present itself in sexual immorality, impurity and indecency, involvement with the worship of false gods, the use or the administering of drugs and herbs to induce an altered state,  contention, excitement of mind, fervor of spirit, fierce anger; in selfish ambition, partisanship, division, following their own doctrine; drunkenness, orgies and things like these. I warn you now as I have warned you before: those who do such things will have no share in the Kingdom of God!      

A simple historical investigation, of the word Pharmekeia, reveals that witches used chemicals or drugs to induce an altered state of consciousness, to invoke the spirits. Inducing an altered state of consciousness actually opens a doorway into the spiritual world and provides evil and unclean spirits a clear path to enter the individual and our reality. This clearly shows that drug abuse is the main object of Paul's warning, in Galations 5:19-21. This also show how Biblical scholars injected witchcraft in the place of drug dealers.

Does thid let the present day field of Pharma of the hook?

Absolutely not! It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that Pharma is continuing to supply their "witch's brew" of various chemicals to hook the human race, into states of euphoria, in an effort to relieve our pain and reality woes. Each time we use these foreign chemicals, our bodies natural response is a want for more and more. We become numb to our reality. We become numb to our spiritual connection to God.

We must ask ourselves, "why?" Why is the Pharmaceutical Industry driven to provide us the newest strains of conscious bending drugs? Money? No Doubt. However, could it be another diabolical way, used by Satan, to disconnect humanity from God?

Kingdom Of God And The Kingdom Of Heaven? Are They The Same?

Did you know that there are two Kingdoms spoken of, in the B'rit Hadashah, the New Testament?

It doesn't take long for the perceptive Bible reader to realize that there is a Kingdom of God and a Kingdom of Heaven, mentioned in the pages of the B'rit Hadashah, the New testament. Some say they are the same. Most agree that the Kingdom of Heaven began at the time of Y'shua, Jesus and continues through the end times and into eternity. This is supported by Matthew 11:12.

"And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force."

However, nestled in the Matthew 25:34, we find this reference to a separate Kingdom beginning immediately after the end times.

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you whom my Father has blessed, take your inheritance, the Kingdom prepared for you from the founding of the world."

We know that the Kingdoms are not straightforward. They are mysterious and contains secrets. Matthew 13:11.

"...it has been given to you to know the mysteries and secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven."

The references to the Kingdom of Heaven are contemporary, not future, and contains warnings concerning the infiltration of Satan and his cohort. While the Kingdom of God can be seen as synonymous with the Kingdom of Heaven, in numerous coinciding verses, we can also see that the Kingdom of God is also in the future, with verses like Mark 14:25.

"Yes! I tell you, I will not drink this ‘fruit of the vine’ again until the day I drink new wine in the Kingdom of God.”

and Luke 13:28-29, which could be seen as pointing back to the Kingdom, mentioned in 25:34.

"You will cry and grind your teeth when you see Avraham, Yitz’chak, Ya‘akov and all the prophets inside the Kingdom of God, but yourselves thrown outside. Moreover, people will come from the east, the west, the north and the south to sit at table in the Kingdom of God."

Could the answer to this question be found in Ephesians 5:5, where it hints at the dual kingdoms of the Messiah and God?

"For of this you can be sure: every sexually immoral, impure or greedy person - that is, every idol-worshipper - has no share in the Kingdom of the Messiah and of God."

Could the Kingdom be representative of the destinies of the Bride of Christ and the Wife of Yahweh?

Or could it simply mean the Kingdom has it's beginning in the Messiah and will be fulfilled, immediately upon the return of the Son of Man?

Only the Spirit of God will lead you into the truth and reveal the mysteries/secrets of the Kingdom(s).

Symbolism Behind The 10 Virgins Parable Explained

Did You Know That The Parable Of The Ten Virgins Is Taught Incorrectly In Most Churches?

“The Kingdom of Heaven at that time will be like ten Virgins, who carried their lamps and went out to await the bridegroomFive of them were foolish and five were wise.  The foolish ones took lamps with them but no oil,  whereas the others took flasks of oil with their lamps.  Now the bridegroom took longer than expected, so they all got tired of waiting and went to sleep It was the middle of the night when the cry rang out, ‘The bridegroom is here! Go out to meet him!’  The virgins all woke up and trimmed their lamps The foolish ones said to the wise ones, ‘Share some of your oil, because our lamps has been found wanting.’ ‘No,’ they replied, ‘there is not enough for both you and us. Go to the oil dealer and redeem some for yourselves.’ But as they were going off to redeem some, the bridegroom came. Those who were ready went with him to the wedding feast, and the door was shut. Later, the other virgins came. ‘Sir! Sir!’ they cried, ‘Let us in!’ But he answered, ‘Indeed! I tell you, I don’t know you!’ So take heed, because you know neither the day nor the hour, that the Son of Man will come.

Now, let's look at the symbolism behind this parable and learn the truth of the Ten Virgins Parable.

Kingdom of Heaven is consistently used to portray the church time period, from the 1st Day of Sukkot, Pentecost, until the day that the Messiah returns for his bride, the Remnant of God.

Virgins is defined by the Greek word used, within the scriptures, "Parthenos". It means a marriageable person. It is clearly a reference to those who are eligible to be married to the coming bridegroom. Those who believe the Gospel.

Lamps represent the outwardly display of your true nature, or Christ like nature. Y'shua referred to this in Matthew 5:16.

Bridegroom. The scriptures are quite clear that this represents the coming Messiah, the Son of God. This needs to be contrasted to the Husband of Israel, which is Yah, Yahweh Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh.

Foolish is the Greek word, "Moris", which means to be foolish by way of being impious, not showing respect or reverence, especially for God. They are truly godless.

Wise is the Greek word, "Phronimos" which means to be wise, by way of being prudent, mindful of one's interest and needs.

Oil is consistently used throughout the scriptures as the presence or the anointing of one with God's Holy Spirit.

Flasks are a receptacle used to hold something. In this case, the oil or Holy Spirit. Colossians 2:9-10 and 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 clearly show that this is our body or the Temple of the Holy Spirit.

Tired Of Waiting is the English translation of the Greek word, "Nystazo", which means literally to be nod or metaphorically to be non-attentive, by way of being neglectful of a thing, delay in taking care of the necessary things of life.


Went To Sleep is the English translation of the Greek word, "Katheudo", which means to litereally fall asleep but metaphorically, to yield to sloth and sin or to be indifferent to one's salvation.

Trimmed is the Greek word, "Kosmeo", which means "to prepare for display, make ready".

Oil Dealer is God, Yahweh, the one that gives his Holy Spirit freely.

Many preachers have taught this parable without any background, to reveal its actual meaning.  Many of Y'shua's, Jesus' parables were warnings about the infiltration of either evil or false teachings into the church. This one is no different.

To give you a little background, Y'shua's, Jesus' disciples were questioning him on what would be the timing of his return, a question that Y'shua, Jesus could not answer, for no one knows the time or day, only the Father knows. That included Y'shua, Jesus. There are some scriptural and anecdotal evidence that points to Y'shua not knowing the day of his return until Yahweh tells him to go and get his bride.

In the end times, the Kingdom of Heaven, the Church, which is different from the Kingdom of God, will resemble the parable of the 10 virgins.  As a sidenote, an alternative reading could be Kingdom from God or Kingdom from Heaven. You can get both from the Greek. 

Toward the end of his dissertation, he brings up the condition of the church, during the end times, just prior to his return. If we take the symbols for what they represent consistently through the scriptures, we find the true meaning of the 10 Virgin Parable.


“The Church, at that time will be like ten eligible believers, who carried their outwardly display and went out to await the Coming MessiahFive of them were impious, not truly showing reverence and respect to God and five were truly respectful of God, Godly, cognitive of what God expects The impious ones carried their outwardly display with them but no Anointing of the Holy Spiritwhereas the others carried themselves, full of the Anointing of the Holy Spirit with their outwardly display

Now the Messiah took longer than expected, so they all became non-attentive, neglectful of the necessary things of life and yielded to sloth and sin and became indifferent to one's salvation It was the middle of the night when the cry rang out, ‘The Messiah is here! Go out to meet him!’  The eligible believers all woke up and prepared for display their outwardly display. 

The Godless ones said to the Godly ones, ‘Share some of your Holy Spirit, because our display of their true nature has been found wanting.’ ‘No,’ they replied, ‘there is not enough for both you and us. Go to God and obtain some for yourselves.’ But as they were going off to obtain, the Messiah came. Those who were ready went with him to the wedding feast, and the door was shut. Later, the other eligible believers came. ‘Sir! Sir!’ they cried, ‘Let us in!’ But he answered, ‘Indeed! I tell you, I don’t know you!’ So take heed, because you know neither the day nor the hour, that the Son of Man will come.
The five virgins who have the extra oil represent the truly born again who are looking with eagerness to the coming of the Messiah. They have saving faith, including the indwelling of God's Holy Spirit and have a desire to know and developed a relationship with God, through the Messiah.

The five virgins without the oil represent false believers who enjoy the benefits of the Christian community, without true love for the Messiah and lacking indwelling of God's Holy Spirit. They didn't care to get to know God and were more concerned about the party than about longing to know the bridegroom. In the end, their hope is that their association with true believers will bring them into the kingdom.

A very disturbing characteristic of the end time church is that all believers fell asleep.

Dont' be satisfied to know of God. Get to know God personally, through the Messiah.

The Best Time To Get To Know God, Is Now.

You don't want to hear, "Depart from me, I never knew you."

Evidence Of Design When Cabbage Cries For Help!!!

Did you know that when cabbage worms attack the cabbage plant, it calls out for help?

That's right. When large cabbage white butterflies, as they are called, lay eggs on your cabbage or your cabbage starts showing signs of cabbage looper or worm damage, it sends off a specific scent. This odor repels other pregnant butterflies from laying more eggs on the plant and attracts two species of parasitic wasps. The wasps swoop in and attack the butterfly eggs and the caterpillars that have hatched from them. Another amazing example of design. However, some will say that this is a great example of evolution. Ok. How did the cabbage know what kind of scent would both repel the worm and attract the wasp? Evolution is still looking for that answer.

Just As In The Days Of Noah

Did you know that the end of days will be like the days of Noah?

What did Y'shua/Jesus mean when he said that? Most scholars believe that the end of days will resemble the days of Noah in both attitude and activity. It doesn't take much to see that our world resembles the society at the time of Noah.

Genesis 6:5 tells us that the people on the earth were very wicked and all the imagination of their hearts were always of evil only and profaned the name of the Lord. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see, that with every passing day the world becomes more and more evil and everything of God is ridiculed.

However, there was one thing that was happening at the time of Noah that hasn't happened yet today. That is the fallen angels meeting with humans to create a hybrid..... or have they?

There are some scholars and researchers that believe todays extra terrestrial presence are indeed the fallen angels attempting to defile humanity. For me, the verdict is still out, but we should not forget the possibility of it happening again.

Chag Shavuot Sameach! The Birth Of The Church.

Did you know that today is Shavuot, Pentecost, the 1988th anniversary of the birth of the church? It also marks the day of God giving the church, the Gift of His Holy Spirit, to dwell within us.

Shavuot is also known as the Feast of Weeks, commemorating the 1st wheat harvest time of the year and the day, that God gave the Torah, the Law, to Moses, on Mount Sinai. It is a Biblically ordained feast to be celebrated 50 days after Passover. It is also one the three pilgrimage feasts, requiring a pilgrimage to Jerusalem.

In addition, King David, was born and died on Shavuot.

Most interesting, it is speculated, as the future date of the Rapture of the Church, while most believe that the Rapture will occur on a future Feast of Trumpets.

Next Time Someone Accuses God, As Being A Fairy Tale, Remind Them Of The Facts.

Did you know that a new scientific study have calculated the odds of life appearing, on earth, by chance, as less than one in 1010^123?

So, you might ask, as I did, where does it rate with other questions of our time.

Well, science has calculated the odds of there being an omnipotent being, God, as one in 1017. The odds of statistical improbability are one in 1036. They also calculated the odds of statistical impossibility at one in 1050. Statistical Impossibility is defined as,

although not truly impossible, the probability is low enough so as to not bear mention in a rational, reasonable argument.”


So, like back in elementary, let’s put this on a number line.


So, the next time someone accuses God, as being a fairy tale, remind them of the facts.

Believe And Be Baptized Then You'll Be Saved????



Did you know that one of the main reasons, why there are so many denominations and fractures, within the church, is that people misread the Bible?

I know that's hard to believe. But seriously, there are countless issues that has caused division, within the church. Most of them arise out of misreading the scriptures. One of these is the self imposed requirement to be baptized, in order to be saved. This church fallacy comes from misinterpreting Mark 16:15-16

"Later, Yeshua appeared to the Eleven as they were eating, and he reproached them for their lack of trust and their spiritual insensitivity in not having believed those who had seen him after he had risen. Then he said to them, “As you go throughout the world, proclaim the Good News to all creation.  Whoever trusts in it, then immersed are saved. Whoever does not trust will be condemned."

and John 3:5.

"Yeshua answered, “Truly and Faithfully I affirm unto you, unless one is born out of water and Spirit, one will not enter the Kingdom of God."

First of all, let's look at Mark 16:15-16 again. Please notice that Y'shua was talking about their lack of trust. Also, Mark 16:15-16 ends in two separate statements. One states that those, who put their trust, in the previously mentioned Good News, and then immersed are saved. Notice, it doesn't say, 'will be saved'. That's a very important distinction.

All of Y'shua's teachings contain the 'If/Then structure. If you do this, then either this will happen or your will do this. When you trust, you follow. When you trust, you obey. When you trust, your first act of obedience is baptism. It drives the point home, in the last statement. 'Those, who do not trust, will be condemned.' Notice, it doesn't say anything about those, who do not get immersed. Immersion or Baptism is not required, but a result. Baptism is an act of obedience following putting your trust in the Lord.

Now, let's look at John 3:5, again. Y'shua could either be talking about Baptism or a well know Jewish idiom, 'The Daily Washing', at the Laver. Since Nicodemus appears to not understand, 'Born Again', Y'shua begins to approach it from a Torah, Old Testament angle. This is evident, when Yshua breaks into the example of the serpent, being lifted up in the desert.

So, what was Y'shua talking about? The Jewish idiom, 'Washing in the Laver', is describing our daily washing within the scriptures. He is saying that you won't understand being 'Born Again', unless you are born out of the scriptures, not literally water. You could say, 'Unless you are Baptized in the Word of God and his Spirit.', not Baptism in Water.

Don't take my word for it. Let's ask our Lord, Y'shua.

Remember, when Y'shua said to the woman, who wanted to be saved, in Matthew 9:22, "Your faith has saved you. And the woman was made whole from that hour." Amazing, no baptism.

Don't forget the theif, on the cross, when after giving his trust in Y'shua. Y'shua told him, 'Today, you will be with me in Paradise.' Again, no baptism.

Now let's stop right and pause a moment. There are some that will say that the women and the thief were under the old covenant. Ok, that's fine, but wasn't Nicodemus under the old covenant in John 3:5? If Y'shua was telling Nicodemus to be baptized, in order to be saved, wouldn't he have told the women and the theif to be baptized, since all three were "under the old covenant"? You can't have it both ways.

Finally, let's not forget, Ephesians 2:8-9.

"For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast."

Why do people want to add to what the Messiah did on the cross? He did it all. He doesn't need our help. However, he does want to act like you trust in him.

Access To The Garden Of Eden?


Did you know that the Garden of Eden is still around?

Many Jews and Christians,  if asked, believe that it was an ancient garden, that existed in the Middle East, that has given way to the ravages of time. As a matter of fact, there has been many documentaries on TV, YouTube, etc., concerning the ancient location of the garden. Many try to locate it by using the geographical information found within the bible. However, no one has been successful, leading scholars to speculate that it is under water, within the Persian Gulf.

What most people don't know is that access, to the Garden, is still possible, by man. How do I know? Well, think about it. Would God waste resources, by having the most powerful angels guarding it, if it wasn't accessible? In Genesis 2:9 and Revelation 22, the Bible clearly shows that Eden and, at least, the Tree of Life, are still there, but are being block by Cherubim, with flaming swords.

So why hasn't someone found it? Quite simple. Within the Garden, the Tree of Life can be found. If we believe what the Bible tells us, anyone who eats from the Tree of Life, lives forever. The Bible tells us that sin cause death and blinds us to the truth. Does that mean that we can't see the entry to the Garden and the Tree of Life, because of our sin. I think the answer can be found in old Jewish teachings.

We are told that Adam and Eve and all creation, resembled God and reflected his Shekinah. Moses showed this phenomena, when God have him the Law on Mt. Sinai. Also, when Elisha prayed for God to reveal the spiritual army protecting them, to his servant and when God separated the light from the darkness. So, were Adam, Eve, Angels, etc., clothed in the light of his Glory? Was this clothing of light part of the dimensionality, man lost, when they sinned? You see, the ability to see or perceive the spirit dimension was lost. As time went on and man indulged further and further into his sinfulness, he lost his spiritual sight.

Now, with the sacrifice, of the Messiah, for mankind's sin, and the Remnant's desire to walk closely with God, can our spiritual eyes be opened, making access to the garden possible or at least catch a glimpse of it? I don't know. However, one thing I do know, when we do obtain our new bodies, bodies again clothed in light, after the resurrection, we will have full access to the Garden and the Tree of Life. We will have full access to it's twelve kinds of fruit, with it's root system straddling the river, which flows from the Throne of God. As for me, I think it will be pretty cool.

The Story Behind The Gospel Part Two. The Solution. The Good News.


Did you know that the 4000 years, between Adam and Y'shua, were an object lesson that points to a solution for mankind's predicament?

The Gospel Story

The Solution

For the 4000 years, between Adam and Y'shua, Jesus, God showed man, through his Law, that he required a perfect sacrifice, to pay for Adam and Eve's infraction. Those 4000 years were also an object lesson to show mankind that no matter what, they could not supply a sacrifice acceptable to God. This was due to God requiring a flawless blood sacrifice of the likes of the one who committed the infraction, otherwise a perfect human blood sacrifice.

The problem, with that, is there was not and never could be a perfect human, born of man, since disobedience now resided in the very nature of man. Since no man, born of a man/woman union, is perfect, God had to provide a solution. The solution was to provide a man through an undefiled woman impregnated by the Spirit of God. This resulted in the supernatural birth of Y’shua, Jesus.

The Good News

According to scriptures, The Tanakh, The Old Testament, where God revealed to us his salvation plan, Y’shua was borne with the Spirit of God and of a virgin woman. He lived a perfect life as a man and was crucified upon the alter of God, the Cross. During his crucifixion, the scriptures tells us that he was made sin for us all. On the cross or stake, God withdrew himself from the man Y’shua and left the perfect Y'shua, to die upon the cross, as the ultimate sin offering.

He was buried in a tomb, guarded by Roman soldiers.

As a side note,  the Jewish leadership feared that the followers of Y'shua would steal the body and claim resurrection. They asked Pontius Pilate to secure the tomb. Pontius Pilate was the Roman Prefect in Israel at this time and the one who condemned Y'shua to death. Pontius Pilate makes a great comment. He said, "Make it as sure as you can." That meant a minimum of four soldiers would guard the tomb for the length of Pesach, Passover.

However, three days later, in fulfillment to scripture, and before the Body would naturally see corruption, God rejoined the man and together resurrected Y’shua in a transformed body and left the tomb. This happened on the Feast of First Fruits, known as Resurrection Day.

Later, on Shavuott, Pentecost, Y'shua ascended to his rightful place, the right hand of his Father in Heaven, where he makes intercession for us on a daily basis. With his blood, he is now a sin covering for all of us who relies on that sacrfice for reconciliation with God.

The only thing God requires from any of us is to accept and believe that Y’shua was the perfect sacrifice.

After that, when we confess ours sins to him, he will be faithful and just to forgive us.

As part of the new relationship, a true believer will desire to get to know God on a more intimate basis through his Word and understanding how his creation reveals him to all. Usually, the first act of obedience of a true believer is to follow Y’shua and be baptized. Baptism is being immersed in water to publicly display your dedication to a life in the Messiah and a ever-growing close relationship with God.

It Was Not About The Tree Or The Fruit. The Gospel, Part One.


Did you know that most people don't know the true story behind man's fall from Grace?

The Gospel Story

The Reason

Some time after God created the time-space reality, in which we live, the first man was formed * by God, from the dust of the world, before the herbs of the field, on the third day of creation. The first man's name was Adam. He was placed in Eden, a garden paradise made especially for him.

On the sixth day, God created ** mankind, man and woman.

Adam, was joined little later by his mate, Eve, who was also formed, from the body of Adam.

After an unknown period of time, Adam and Eve, disobeyed the one rule that God gave them. He told them not to eat from one tree, in the garden. After being tempted, by Satan, Eve ate from the tree. However, it was not about the fruit or the tree. It was disobedience, that Satan taught Eve, that day.

Disobedience revealed a different perspective to Eve. Up to this point, it didn't even occur to her to do anything, other than obey God's simple rule. However, afterwards, it opened up a new line of reasoning, 'What If?'. It was 'What If?', that caused Adam to deliberately enter into sin.

When Eve ate of the fruit and then delivered the fruit to Adam. He was given something that he hadn't had up to then, a choice. He could have continued to follow God and let Eve perish or he could give himself up to disobedience, in an effort to save Eve.  Many people really come down hard on Adam for his choice, that day, for this disobedience created a fracture or separation between God's existence and ours.

However, if you think about it, Adam's choice not only opened him up to mankind's ridicule and condemnation, he also experience AGAPE, for the first time. AGAPE is a totally committed love, that only God possessed, up to that point in time. It was good for us, because AGAPE would be needed for mankind to be reconciled back to God, but unbeknownst to mankind, it would take almost 4000 years for reconciliation to happen.

Unfortunately, for Adam and Eve and the rest of mankind, God required a penalty/punishment for this disobedience. From this point on, man would experience both physical death and spiritual separation from God for the next 4000 years.

* The Hebrew word used in the Genesis 2 account is YATSAR, meaning 'to form from existing materials'.

** The Hebrew word used here, in this excerpt, from Genesis 1, is 'BARA' which means, 'to create out of nothing'.

A Jewish Ceremony With Christian Messianic Undertones? Could It Only Be A Coincidence?


Did you know that during the Passover Seder, there are three pieces of Matzah, presented to those who are present? According to the Jewish Haggadah, these three pieces of Matzah are to be pierced and stripped, before they are presented. The center piece is then broken in two, and the larger, which is called Afikomen, which means, “He who has come, will come.”, is wrapped in a cloth and “buried” away. After Passover, the center piece is “redeemed” from it’s hiding place.
Could the three Matzah represent the three criminals of Golgotha? Could the piercing and stripping be representative of the flogging and piercing they endured? Could the center piece represent the duality of Y’shua/Jesus being the require man sacrifice, having the Spirit of God dwelling within him? Could the broken center piece represent the Messiah, when the Father drew away from him, and left the man Y’shua/Jesus to become sin and be sacrificed for the redemption of mankind? Could the broken piece represent the dead Y’shua/Jesus, that was wrapped in his burial cloth and put into the grave? Could the redeemed piece represent the redeeming Messiah rising from the grave? Could Afikomen represent his first and second future coming?

Or Could it be a Coincidence?

As for me, there is no way, that you can convince me that the Jews would have knowingly put together a ceremony that has Christian Messianic Overtones and point to our Meshiach, Y’shua, Jesus, The Christ.

What Do You Mean, Not All My Sins Are Covered?

Did you know that not all of your sins are covered by the blood of Y’shua/Jesus?
Well, let me start off with the fact that God does forgive all sins, that we confess to him and turn away from, even those sins committed, when we stumble, throughout our lives. 1 John 1:9 is referred to the Christians bar of soap. It says:

“If we confess our sins, he forgives them and cleanses us from everything we’ve done wrong.”

As a side note, a word for word translation, of 1 John 1:9 says:

“If we admit our guilt in violating God’s Law and are faithful and observant of God’s commands, that (Blood) forgives us and cleanses us from all unrighteousness.”

However, there is a particular group of sins that, if we continually and willfully indulge, will preclude us from the Kingdom. In 1 Cor 6:9 it lists these sins.

”Don’t you know that one who continues to violate God’s Law will not inherit the right or authority to rule in the Kingdom of God. Deceive not or be deceived, neither will those who indulge in unlawful sexual intercourse or hires themselves out for another's lust, nor worshippers of false gods, idolaters, even Christians, who participate, in any way, in the worship in the ways of the heathen, especially those who attends their sacrificial feasts and eats of the remains of offered victims, nor those who are faithless toward God or their mates, nor those who commit unlawful lewdness or sexual intercourse with the same sex.”
Revelation 21:8 adds those who are faithless and deceitful, to that group.

Bottom Line: If we confess our sins and rely on the blood of the Messiah for a covering for our sins, then our sins are forgiven, no matter how many times we stumble and fall. We must show our commitment (Agape) to God, by being Faithful and Observant of God’s commands, but if we falter, we are forgiven, if we confess. However, those who continually and willfully indulge in sexual lewdness, idolatry, adultery, homosexuality, faithlessness and deceitfulness will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

One last comment. God loves EVERY SINGLE INDIVIDUAL. It is the sin, that God hates.

Why We Should Know And Understand The Hebrew Lunar Calendar?

Did you know that the Remnant of God should be following a lunar calendar, in addition to the solar calendar?

No, it's not a requirement and I'm not saying that we need to drop the solar calendar, for our day to day life. However, we need to be able to follow the lunar calendar, because God has ordained it, in order for us to know and celebrate holy convocations and to recognize important events, along God's timeline.

Yes, God has established a timeline and everything is going as planned. To know, understand and follow the lunar calendar, gives us intimate knowledge that God is in control and reassurances, in our moment of weakness. Following lunar calendar and his appointed times/feasts is also a great witnessing tool to show unbelievers the amazing predictive power of a Supernatural God, which has an amazing prophetic accuracy record, proving that he is outside our Time and Space.

 Finally, if you don't quite understand why God is doing something either in the world or in your life, it could be that you are not following his timeline, within the lunar calendar.

Happy Real Resurrection Day!!!

Did you know that today is the 1988th anniversary of the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior? The first Resurrection Day was the actual day of the Feast of First Fruits. As a side note, Feast of First Fruits always lands on the day, after the Shabbat, after  Pesach / Passover, which is always Sunday.


The first crucifixion day was on a Wednesday. By the way, there is no such thing as Good Friday, which was created by way of tradition and pagan observation. I will not go into that, in this post. Three days later, sometime after 6pm, on Saturday, Y'shua/Jesus rose from the grave. Remember, after 6pm, it would have been Sunday, the start of the Feast of First Fruits.

Praise God!

"Let The Rock That Was Rolled Away, Be My Cornerstone."

Y'shua/Jesus Died, Of A Broken Heart, 1988 Years Ago, Today.

Did you know that Today, at 8am EST, marks the 1988 anniversary of when the Roman soldiers found that Y'shua/Jesus was dead upon the cross. It was approximately 2-3pm, Jerusalem time, when the order came down for the soldiers to break the legs of Y'shua/Jesus and the two thieves. However, when they came upon Y'shua/Jesus, he was already dead. They pierced his side, with a spear, to ensure his death.

When they pierced his side, water flowed, indicating that his heart had ruptured. Modern pathologists indicate that this proves that Y'shua/Jesus died of a broken heart. They ended up not breaking his legs, fulfilling the Pesach/Passover Lamb Commandment found in Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12 and the Prophecy in Psalm 34:20.

Between 3-6pm, Y'shua/Jesus was laid to rest, in the grave of Joseph of Arimathea, as prophesied in Isaiah 53:9. Passover began at 6pm, sunset, on that day.

Other times of this observance:

San Franciso 7am-10am
Washington 8am-11am
London 1pm-4pm
Berlin 2pm-5pm
Moscow 4pm-7pm
Bejing 8pm-11pm
Tokyo 9pm-11pm
Sidney 12am-3am

Daniel 9 and Zechariah 9: Precision, At It's Finest.

Did you know that, also, on the 10th of Nisan, 5777, on the Hebrew calendar, there was a fulfillment, of a Biblical Prophecy, that is so amazingly precise, so mind-boggling, that most teachers refuse to put it into their sermons?

As previously posted, this was the day that Y'shua / Jesus, allowed himself to be presented, for the first time, as the Messiah. As he rode in to Jerusalem, on the back of a mule, only a few recognized it as an exact day fulfillment of prophecy, foretold, by Daniel and Zechariah, both between 500-600 years before the time of Y'shua/Jesus.

In Daniel 9, verse 25, it states that there will be 483 years, from the commandment to rebuild Jerusalem, after the Babylonian captivity, to when the Messiah would come. According to both Biblical and non-biblical sources, it was 483 years, to the day, from the commandment by the Persian king, Cyrus the Great, to rebuild Jerusalem and the walls, until the first time Y'shua / Jesus allowed himself to be presented, as Messiah, the King, at the gates of Jerusalem.

"Know, therefore, and discern that seven weeks [of years] will elapse between the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Yerushalayim until an anointed prince comes."

Of course, Y'shua / Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a colt, a foal of a donkey, just as Zechariah 9 said.

“Behold, your King is coming to you…lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey ”

Happy 1988th Anniversary!

Did you know today is the 10th of Nisan, the 1988th anniversary of the Triumphal Entry?

If historians are correct, Y'shua / Jesus made his triumphal and last entry into Jerusalem, the week of his crucifixion, 1988 years ago today.

Also, on this day, the high priests were presenting the lambs, to God, for the Passover Sacrifice. At the same time, God was presenting the ultimate Passover Lamb, in Y'shua / Jesus, to the world.

Are We Real Or Just An Illusion?

Did you know that our universe is just an illusion?

In 2013, Quantum Physicists supposedly proved that our reality is but a subset of the true reality. What does that mean? It means that our four dimensional reality is but a shadow of a higher dimension.

A great example is the two dimensional shadow, which is cast, by our three dimensional bodies, onto the ground, when standing in the light.


Our reality is the shadow of a higher dimensional reality.

Now, let's look at the Scriptures and look at how they portray our existence.


Psalm 91:1

"Those who dwell, in the shelter of the Most High, abides in the shadow of Shaddai, the Almighty."

Psalm 144:4

"Man resembles a breath in his days, a shadow that passes away."

Hebrews 8:5

"Who serves as the example and shadow of heavenly things…"

Well, as always, science continues to prove the Bible correct.


Where are those, who ridicule Bible readers, that take the Bible literally, now?

In the past, we were ridiculed by non-literalist, atheist and nonbelievers alike. Even some literalists have to step back and re-examine the fact, that they haven't taken the scriptures, literally enough. 

In order to anchor yourselves, to reality, God has set up his Word to be interpreted literally first and foremost, before going into the levels of metaphoric, symbolic and so on. God continues to prove his Word above and before all.

Finally, this is also another great representation of how Y'shua, the Son of Man was a shadow of God existence, on this earth. Now, we, along with Y'shua, as Sons of God, continue to be the true "shadow" and proof, that God exists.

Jeremiah or Zechariah? Shedding Light On Apparent Bible Contradictions.

Did you know that there is an apparent contradiction in Matthew 27:9? In the English and some Greek translations, dated approximately, within the 4th century AD, Matthew appears to quote Jeremiah saying,

“Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value.”
However, when avid Bible readers start searching out the references, they find that Jeremiah didn’t say anything like that. Further investigation would reveal that Zechariah actually said it, in Zechariah 11:12. This little tidbit leaves Atheist and other servants of Satan to foam at the mouth saying, “See, the Bible isn’t inerrant.” and “As a matter of fact, the Bible has many errors, in it. Therefore, it cannot be the Word of God.” Well, they would have a point, if the English translation was, in fact, the true Word of God.

Unfortunately, the English translators refused to search for the earliest transcripts and reconcile their beliefs to the true Word of God. Instead, they manipulated the English bible to match their own cultural and personal beliefs.
Anyway, what is the truth? The truth is that the earliest Greek and Aramaic transcripts didn’t mention a name, at all. The earliest version of the Bible says,

“Then was fulfilled what was spoken by the Prophet who said, “I took thirty silver coins, the price of The Precious One on which they of the children of Israel had agreed.”
Most likely, the name of Jeremiah was added by some well meaning scribe, in order to help readers, but instead, resulted in another roadblock for some Christians, to have to fend against.

And that's what you're find When You Search For The Truth.

How Did Judas Really Die? Shedding Light On Apparent Bible Contradictions.

Did you know that there are two apparently conflicting accounts, of Judas's death, in the Bible?

In Matthew 27:3-5, Matthew tells us that Judas hung himself after betraying Jesus. However, in Acts 1:16-19, Luke tells us that Judas fell headlong and his guts burst out.  

Which one is correct? Can both of them be correct?  

As always, the truth is found in the details. Unfortunately there are many Christians that will proclaim that both are true, without having an explanation, for the apparent conflict. There are also Atheist and Nonbelievers that disingenuously use this apparent contradiction, as a tool to lead uninformed Bible readers, away from the faith. So, what is the truth?  

Well, a reading of the Greek in Matthew, reveals that after Judas' guilt got too much for him, he tried to returned the 30 pieces of silver, for betraying Y'shua, Jesus, back to the chief priests. In turn, the priests, unable to put the money back in the treasury, due to the law, bought a burial place in the nearby Potters Field, for strangers. A reading of the Greek shows that most English translations properly interpreted Matthew. 

As for Acts 1, most English Translations go like this: 

"Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his insides gushed out."

The NIV and Berean Bibles actually put Judas' name in the verse, solidifying the apparent contradiction.

However, a closer look at the Greek, behind these translations, reveals what the actual verse says.

"Now, therefore, they purchased a piece of ground, out of the unrighteous reward and it came to pass, he was put head first into it, with a crack, and all his bowels gushed out."

Now, what is the whole story? As in Matthew, Judas went and hung himself, most likely hanging there for days. His body would begin to decompose and swell from the gases inside. Once found, he barely was recognizable and his body was most likely turned in, as a dead stranger. They would have taken his body and thrown it into the Potters Field, for strangers. This swelled up and decomposing body would have cracked and split wide open, upon hitting the bottom of the grave. Much care would not have been given to an already unclean body. 

So, in reality, the true scriptures are correct and complimentary to each other.

This is another great example of why serious Bible readers should get back to the original Scriptures, in order to find the real truth of God's Word, instead of reading someone else's erroneous translation.

And that's what you're find When You Search For The Truth.

The Incredible Expanding.....Earth? Another Bible First!


Did you know that the earth is expanding? Yes, scientists estimated the average growth change in Earth's radius to be 0.004 inches (0.1 millimeters). The reasons, as why this is happening, are included what is called, “The Expanding Earth Theory”. Most scientists have concluded that the core of the earth is most likely growing in size. I find this very amusing, since it wasn’t too long ago that Atheists and other non-believers and even some “Christians” made fun of literal Bible believers, for believing Isaiah 5:14, where it states, “The Underworld enlarges itself.” They laughed and poked fun at literalists, for the mere thought that the earth is growing in size. Well, lo and behold, the earth doth grow and now it’s the scientists, atheists, non-literalist, etc., that has to eat their own words and admit that the Bible, once again, got it correct, and was the first to do so.

Just A Coincidence? Or Design?

Did you know that the oxygen level, within our air, is just enough to support combustion and human life?

Science has shown us that our air contains 20.9% oxygen. Other studies have shown that fire combustion can be initiated at approximately 16% oxygen, but cannot develop into and actually sustain fire, until the oxygen level rises to 18.9%. However, optimal usable combustion does not occur until oxygen level rises to, you guessed it, 20.9%. Another amazing scientific discovery is the if you raise the oxygen level to between 21.9% and 30%, combustion becomes unstable and explosive.

The other interesting thing is that the minimum oxygen concentration for human breathing is 19.5 percent. Below that brain and body cells began to die. For humans and many animals to sustain normal functions, the percentage of oxygen in our breathing environment must be within a small range. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, OSHA, determined the optimal breathing range to be between 19.5 and 23.5 percent oxygen. As a matter of fact, once a human begins breathing oxygen levels above 23.5%, numerous health issues arise. With all that said, there are human activities, such as jet pilots, divers, etc. that breath higher levels of oxygen, but they require special training to do so.
Isn't amazing that our oxygen levels are exactly what we need to survive and propagate? You have to decide whether it's coincidence or design?
