Dear Brothers and Sisters, this is my first communication since the refining of my subscriber database; the separation of the wheat from the tares. Yahuah did call me out of the world, very powerfully. He did radically transform me from hating Him to yearning to be with Him. As one “christian” leader in my local church commented privately to a mutual and respected friend, “He (referring to me) is not like us.” In the subsequent two years since that comment was made, his actions proved repeatedly that he is false to me; not my friend and not my brother.
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.
I call the Lord God Almighty Elohim (which is the plural of El), El Shaddai, and Yahuah, also interchangeably, mostly for teaching purposes. Yahuah is His proper and correct name.

The Powerful Delusion – Is The Delusion This: “We Are Not Under The Law”?
The Lord Yahuah will allow people to believe a huge error because they “did not receive the love of the truth.”
2nd Thessalonians 2:10 – “and in all deceit of unrighteousness (the lies that lawlessness is covered by grace) in those being lost (in the process of falling away), because they did not receive (it is offered and taught in the Scriptures – but rejected by the church) the love of the truth in order for them to be saved.”
2Th 2:11 And because of this, God will send to them a working of error, for them to believe the lie, (“a working of error” sounds like a work within the church, a doctrine in the church that is in error and that this error is a lie, not a mistake; a false premise, not a position of sound doctrine.)
If we do not “receive the love of the truth”, then what does the Holy Bible tell us “truth” is? Torah is truth.
