It’s late; 12:12 AM. I’m listening to a singer who goes by the name “Sade”. She is singing a song titled “Somebody Already Broke My Heart”, and this woman can sing. Its smooth, almost jazz, but much better, with a simple rythm, simple lyrics and her velvet voice.
Thought you might be curious about the music I listen to at 12:12 AM on a Friday morning in South Texas. Continue reading “We Build With Small Stones”
“A house divided against itself cannot stand.” Who said that? Yahusha (study the linked page) said that. If Yahusha said it, we can be certain of it. A house divided against itself cannot stand. It will fail, collapse, divide and decay. His statement applies to nations, churches, marriages, teams and all organizations or entities which are comprised of more than a single mind.
This makes His statement “I and the Father are one” uniquely powerful in that Yahusha states that He and Yahuah are of one single mind, that Yahusha only does the Will of Yahuah. Beautiful stuff.

How To Study The Instructions Of Yahuah – It Is Only Difficult When We Personally Make It Difficult
When one is new to Torah observance, one can find oneself at a loss regarding “Where to start”. Its funny that Yahuah left us His “Instructions” or “Words” (mistransliterated as “Law”), without a “Start Here” button to click.
So one will ask friends, search the interweb, read various sections of Torah and generally attempt to piece together a process of study. One thing for sure you will learn, as did I, is this: Obedience is easy until we make it difficult ourselves. It is our selfish flesh that makes obedience difficult, every time.

Let’s begin a divine instruction study by starting at Deuteronomy (DaBarim, Hebrew for “The Words”), ch 12. While there are many commands of Yahuah, beginning in Genesis with “Let light come to be”, DaBarim 12 is the only place that I find which begins with:
These are the laws and rightrulings which you guard to do in the land which your Yahuah, Alahim of your fathers, is giving you to possess, all the Yomim (days) that you live on the soil.”
If you are obedient to the command in Numbers that states from the mouth of Yahuah that there is one law in the congregation of the Hebrews and the non-Hebrews, that we are all commanded to submit to the same set of instructions, then congratulations, for you have received the love for the Truth.
Here is the command to the congregation –

I don’t know about you, but the social tension/aggression is really growing, especially in the USA.
Recently I watched a video on Youtube produced by Jason A, and it was about street violence. Really shocking stuff, and one guy took a sledge hammer to the car of another guy, then hit the driver of the car in the back with the sledge hammer as the driver tried to run away.
Two days ago I was standing on the sidewalk of a burger joint with my 4-yr old held high in the air and my 10 and 12 yr olds standing there talking to me as we waited for my wife to join us from the car.

Getting The Words correct is not difficult, although there is a lot to discover. Change will occur as we learn from the Ruach HaKodesh (translated as ‘Holy Spirit’ in most bibles), who is the only true teacher of The Words.
“The Words” are the first words of Dabarim (aka Deuteronomy but Dabarim means “The Words”).
Deu 1:1 These are the words which Moses spoke to all Israel beyond the Jordan; in the wilderness, in the Arabah, opposite to Suph, between Paran and Tophel, and Laban and Hazeroth, and Dizahab;
Deu 1:2 eleven days from Horeb by way of Mount Seir to Kadesh-barnea.
Deu 1:3 And it happened, in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month on the first of the month, Moses spoke to the sons of Israel according to all that Jehovah had commanded him concerning them;
I would like to begin with Chapter 12.

I met with a fine Christian brother recently, a Pastor, and we had a powerful conversation regarding who is “Israel”, and who is expected to obey the commands of Yahuah.
He does not believe that non-Jews are called to obey the commands of Yahuah, stating that all of those laws are “for the Jews”. That Israel is “Jew only” might be more accurate.
If he is correct in that non-Jews are free from the Law, then for us, sin is impossible. Yippee! It is impossible to sin without the Law, because sin is transgression of the law (1 John3:4). And if a gentile cannot sin because gentiles are not required to obey Yahuah, then we can fornicate all we want, right, Pastor? And homosexualism, even in the Pastorate, is OK-fine, right? Because if gentiles are free from obedience to the commands of Yahuah, we don’t even need salvation, since “sin” will apply only to the Jews, Pastor.

Rev 12:17 And the dragon was enraged over the woman, and went away to make war with the rest of her seed, those keeping the commandments of God, and having the testimony of Jesus Christ.
In the Book of The Revelation, and in fact in the entire Holy Bible, there is only one group of human beings that The Dragon seeks to kill. Who is this select group?
The group that the Dragon seeks to destroy consists entirely and exclusively of human beings who do two things: Have the testimony of Yahusha (Jesus) and KEEP the Commandments of Yahuah (the Lord God Almighty).

I’ve not written much in the last two months, due primarily to the holidays and the “flu” in my family. I personally doubt that we experienced the “flu”, and am inclined to believe that we were sprayed down by chemicals spewing from the nozzles on those jets we see overhead constantly. Sometimes the chemtrail production is so intense that I can taste the stuff in my mouth, and choke on it.
Today I want to discuss a very important matter – My Torah Notes – The Truth. I continually get questions from folks who clearly are not reading the notes. That proves only one thing – many people simply refuse to discover the Truth, because they willfully choose to live in rebellion. They argue endlessly against the very words from the mouth of GOD Yahuah Himself. They cite all the TV preachers who condemn the “Law” and who teach “grace”. Do not be one of those people, or you will likely burn in hell along side them.
Not to, you know, be blunt or anything.

I must confess that I copied this article on the Tzitzit from http://www.setapartpeople.com/tzit-tzit-a-reminder-throughout-our-generations . Its a good article that includes more details than I personally would bother with, but it does include the correct references to Abraham and his descendants.
Who are the descendants of Abraham?
Those who worship the same El as does Abraham. A key point is this: worship means we study His Word and apply His commands in our daily lives, and this includes all of the holy days established by Yahuah.
