To my friend

To my friend

**Please help me to pen this letter to my friend. I’m trying to be understandable but thorough (hitting just the high points)**
**************************
To my friend

(Read this once without a Bible – Then again with a Bible while looking up the verses given).

To my friend – Who loves to hunt and fish, that understands little of the Bible, but understands all too well the confusing sometimes opposing rhetoric of the Churches.

The next time (and all the times after that) you are surrounded by the beauty of the forest with it’s combinations of different trees, lakes and brush & and all the animals, fish and birds or even in a desert or meadow in all the different kinds, shapes and colors – Know that Yahweh created it all (Rom.1:20).

Then consider yourself in that forest, desert or meadow. You are a created being; in Yahweh’s image and likeness (Gen.1:26). Meaning that we as humans basically look like Yahweh ‘image’ and in the beginning (before sin – Gen.3:5-7) we responded in the same way ‘likeness’. To explain in the closest for instance I can think of is the relationship of ‘hardware’ (the ‘image’ part) and ‘software’ (how we respond – ‘likeness’) of our modern computers.

After ‘sin’ entered at creation – that ‘software’ response – ‘likeness’ got corrupted – the relationship to Yahweh was severed – We no longer fully obeyed Yahweh or responded fully as He would. *And* the ‘dominion’ Yahweh gave man (Gen.1:26); man gave that control over to Satan by choosing to listen to and obey him instead.

That was the reason for the ‘seed of the woman’ prophesy (Gen.3:15 ) foretelling the coming of Yahshua – Yahweh’s Son (corrupted to ‘Jesus’) as Messiah ‘redeemer’. This was all under the Melkizedeq succession of Priesthood (Yahweh is Melek = King; of Righteousness = Zedeq) before Israel broke the Melkizedeq Covenant (Ex.32:10) and was put under the Levitical Priesthood (Num.3:12) that did not exist before the said breech of Ex.32.

This service under the Levitical Priesthood lasted until the Birth, Life, Death & Resurrection of Yahshua Messiah (Acts 15:10, Mat.11:13, Heb.7:21) returning the possibility back to the Melkizedeq Priesthood (Heb.7:12, 1Ptr.2:9, Rev.1:6) – And the possibility to operate under that much freer way. That is what Yahshua meant saying Mat.11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

The Jews, Messianics and even the Church confuse many values with their own ‘stuff’ (ideas about religion). That is to say these ones mix many values with a Levitical mindset – the Jews & Messianics largely say they keep all the law; the Church on the otherhand rejects all the law claiming no law ‘Grace’. None of these groups ‘rightly divides’ (2Tim.2:15) or understands the difference between the Levitical and the Melkizedeq Priesthood.

Yahweh shows and demonstrates that Melkizedeq Covenant, Priesthood and Law (Gen.1:1 thru Ex.24:8-11) is ‘Grace’; it is that ‘lighter way’. It is the way we all need to understand and enter – it is the way you as my long time friend need to understand, accept and enter; if you will choose life.

I’m sorry but it is the way it is; none of us today have an ownership in it, yet we all have to own what we decide to do with this situation; knowing that deciding not to decide is itself a decision; and in that is the problem – we will either legitimize it or leave. Knowing that there is a ‘mix’ everywhere you go; the recipes are different but its a ‘mix’ nonetheless – This is the confusion part; we also need to understand that we are to be on that straight and narrow path (Mat.7.13-23) neither turning to the right or the left (Dt.5:32); meaning that there is a Christian Church ‘ditch’ on 1 side and a Rabbinic Jewish ‘ditch’ on the other; both must be avoided to find Yahweh’s straight road.

The decision my friend is yours – 1st you must be honest about and confess your sins (1Jn.1:9) and except Yahshua as your Saviour (Rom.10.9-10) and make that ‘about-face’ (2Chron.7:14/John 8:11).

You can come ‘as’ you are – But – you cannot ‘stay’ as you are – you are to be on a journey of Truth, Discovery and Becoming.

You will find it helpful to read your Bible daily (you can read most chapters in 5 mins.); remembering to ‘rightly divide’ (2Tim.2:15) ‘search daily’ (Acts 17:11) ‘exercise your senses’ (Heb.5:13-14) and ‘think on these things’ (Phil..4:8). Knowing that Acts 15:19-21 is the clearest New Testament directive that New Testament believers in Yahshua are to be learning Torah – Gen., Ex., Lev., Num., Deut. – the 1st 5 books written by Moses.

Remember – Psalms111:10 The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: … (1Jn.2:3-6).

His Melkizedeq commandments include Sabbath and the Feastdays, etc. (Ex.23/Lev.23)

The Bible speaks of the separation of the ‘sheep’ and the ‘goats’ (Mat.25:32-33) – The Bible speaks of “My sheep hear My ‘voice'” (Jn.10:27 ). ‘Voice’ speaks of Covenant (Ex.19:5-6/Rev.3:20). Meaning Yahweh’s ‘sheep’ will obey His Word – The ‘goats’ will not.

It is a pity and shame that I cannot in good conscience recommend or direct you to any ole Bible study, Church or Messianic Assembly – What I must do is warn you that if you do go to any of these – Think for yourself – ask questions, search your Bible to see if these things are so (Acts 17:11) – Believe the Truth.

What I can do is point you to Melkizedeq Assemblies – Thankfully they are starting to show up. Good places include;

Torah to the Tribes – FaceBook and .com – Live Stream Sabbath @ 5pm with archives –
Salem Oregon

Remnant of Truth Congregation – FaceBook and .com – Live Stream Sabbath @ 2pm with archives – Whittier Calif.

The Melchizedek Priesthood – FaceBook and .com – Coeur d’Alene, Idaho

http://www.YahwehsMessenger.com – streaming – Malkitzedek Corner roughly every other week – Craigmont, Idaho

TWR – https://torahwithoutrabbinics.wordpress.com/ – /books and FaceBook

A caution even with these – Like you; I can only control me. Again; Think for yourself – don’t be spoon-fed your theology by anyone, ask questions, search your Bible to see if these things are so (Acts 17:11) – Believe the Truth in Yahweh’s Word.

The main thing is to start – take your baby steps, ask your questions – but as you do grow and know that Yahweh will not hide from you (Ps.119:2/Jer.24:7/Mat.7:7)

Yahweh’s Blessing as you accept Salvation; to find and do His Truth (Ezk.36:26-27/Jer.31:31-33/Lk.22:20)

Listen Up!

Listen Up!

PicsArt_12-29-06.29.18.jpg

This image was Willy Wonka and it said – Yahusha? – You learned Hebrew on Facebook; didn’t you?

To all the johnny-come-lately variants that do not reflect and / or actually teach against Yahweh and Yahshua and the use thereof – Listen Up!

Well at least you have the pagan – God/god, LORD/lord, Latin prefix/Greek suffix Jesus thing right

Some 10 / 15yrs ago everyone was fine with Yahweh and Yahshua without much variant. Now however it has become in-vogue, even fashionable to pander to, assert, even force this as a point of contention.

All in the name of being special with secret special untapped knowledge – Ooo

Yes – There are variants of the tetragrammaton – YHWH (Yahweh), YHVH (Yahveh) and YHUH (Yahueh) – The point is we just don’t know thanks to the Pharisees and Rabbis but what we do know is Yah is the prefix short form from Ps.68:4 – And whether; eh, Ah or ah even Yahooeh, Ah or ah the suffix transition to any of these variants will produce a ‘W’ sound (except from ‘V’). However the suffix eh, Ah or ah is still consistent.

Actually Yahshua is the construction of & means the call to or the rich (shua) * Shua – Job 36:19, salvation (yeshua) * yeshua/h – Gen.49:18, of Yah * Yah – Ps.68:4 (short form of Yahweh) – As in Abram’s name change to Abr’ah’am, As in Sari’s name change to Sar’ah’, As in the verb ‘yeshua’ being changed to the Name Y’ah’shua – as in the universal Hebrew phrase no matter what language; Hallelu-Yah – Praise Yahweh.

Salvation from Yeshua/h – & – Yahh from Ps.68:4 – & – Hallelu-Yah – & – shua meaning the rich call to Salvation and that is the $64 question – What does ‘usha’ mean? – Not a ding dong thing in Hebrew.

Proponents of ‘usha’ point to some guy that made a video or wrote an article or a series of them that plays fast and loose with the facts – that assert a construct of wish it were so Hebrew word confabulations – that completely ignore the nuts & bolts of the matter.

Now show me your preferred stand alone word;

yahu/yahw/yaho or usha/wsha/osha or sha or ??? for that matter in any verse – with the definition and reference number (Note – don’t even try citing 3467/8 for ‘sha’ )

Side note ‘usha’ is the sanskit **girls** name for a demon goddess

Now – how honoring is that?

See – Torah Without Rabbinics wordpress . Com – Search ‘usha’

(Note among the initial complaints is that ‘yeshua/h’ is a feminine verb)

You make up a spelling YaHU יהו. not found in the text as if it was a legitimate stand-alone Hebrew word. Complete with No definition & No reference number & No verse –

Some will lodge – Yahshua spelled יהשוע isn’t found in any text
Yet ignore legitimate Hebrew words such as;

H3444
יְשׁוּעָה
yeshû‛âh
yesh-oo’-aw
Feminine passive participle of H3467; something saved, that is, (abstractly) deliverance; hence aid, victory, prosperity: – deliverance, health, help (-ing), salvation, save, saving (health), welfare.
Total KJV occurrences: 78

H3050
יָהּ
yâhh
yaw
Contracted for H3068, and meaning the same; Jah, the sacred name: – Jah, the Lord, most vehement. Cp. names in -iah, -jah.
Total KJV occurrences: 49

Bla, Bla, Bla, Blahhhh – Some take the long way around to prove what I have already said – “Tell me the exact reference number with the Hebrew word usha or sha – No one ever has”

Some will go so far as to lodge ‘vain’ from Exodus 20:7 as ‘shua’; But are in fact caught in a lie

H7723 Vain
shâv’ shav
shawv, shav
(This is at best dyslexic, at worst dishonest – saying that shawv / shav is somehow shua – even if we grant u in place of v; the word would be shawu or shau)

H7723 from  H7722 – This must be the presumed ‘chink’ in the amour – Yet it does not change the fact of H7723 Vain and H7769 Halloo – cry, riches

H7722
שֹׁאָה שׁוֹאָה שׁוֹא
shô’ shô’âh shô’âh
sho, sho-aw’, sho-aw’

H7769
שׁוּעַ
shûa‛
shoo’-ah
From H7768; a halloo: – cry, riches.

By definition hal·loo – “used to attract someone’s attention” – It is a neutral – Some try to say ‘cry’ is a negative – But it too is a neutral – Example ‘cry for joy’ ??? And ‘riches’ who would not want that? So this ‘cry’ is to the rich ‘salvation’ (yeshua/h) of YHWH thru Yahshua.

Yahweh is not the Elohim of confusion

And they said what??? “Which isn’t found in any text”??? – Don’t look now but they are hoisted on their own petard. I guess deceitful rhetoric is as far as their honesty goes

Proponents invariably always comment their assertions without proof – For that’s the only way they can validate their load.

Now 1] show the stand-alone Hebrew word of your choice 2] with the verse it is used in, 3] with the definition of and 4] the reference number for this imagined word.
Yahu
Usha
Ushua
Sha
Yahw
Wsha
Yaho
Osha
Or any as long as your arm imagined variant of the forgoing.

I’ll show you mine
* Yah – Ps.68:4
H3050
יָהּ
yâhh
yaw
Contracted for H3068, and meaning the same; Jah, the sacred name: – Jah, the Lord, most vehement. Cp. names in -iah, -jah.
Total KJV occurrences: 49

* Shua – Job 36:19
H7769
שׁוּעַ
shûa‛
shoo’-ah
From H7768; a halloo: – cry, riches.
Total KJV occurrences: 2
H7770
שׁוּעַ
shûa‛
shoo’-ah
The same as H7769; shua, a Canaanite: – Shua, Shuah.
Total KJV occurrences: 3

03444. hewvy y@shuw`ah, yesh-oo’-aw
feminine passive participle of 3467; something saved, i.e. (abstractly) deliverance; hence, aid, victory, prosperity:–deliverance, health, help(-ing), salvation, save, saving (health), welfare.
See Hebrew 03467 (yasha`)
… shuw`ah
07769. ewv shuwa`, shoo’-ah
from 7768; a halloo:–cry, riches.

* yeshua/h – Gen.49:18
H3444
יְשׁוּעָה
yeshû‛âh
yesh-oo’-aw
Feminine passive participle of H3467; something saved, that is, (abstractly) deliverance; hence aid, victory, prosperity: – deliverance, health, help (-ing), salvation, save, saving (health), welfare.
Total KJV occurrences: 78

And consider what I just found – H4444

מַלְכִּישׁוּעַ

malki^yshu^a‛

mal-kee-shoo’-ah
From H4428 and H7769; king
(male) of wealth; Malkishua, an Israelite (male) : – Malchishua.: – Malchishua.

So —- – shua, yeshua, Yah means something – what from the Bible does usha/ushua/wshua/wsha/sha mean? Zipp0 – Nada – n0thing

Consider – Usha is a Sanskrit name **for girls** meaning Morning, Dawn, Sun rise
http://www.baby-names-meanings.net/meaning/usha.html

And lookie what else I found
03388. avwry Y@ruwsha’, yer-oo-shaw’
or Yaruwshah {yer-oo-shaw’} **feminine** passive participle of 3423; possessed; Jerusha or Jerushah, as **Israelitess**:–Jerusha, Jerushah.
So the **feminine** argument concerning shua/ushua/wshua/oshua – is just out to lunch. This after all is among the ‘usha’/ ‘sha’ proponents initial **feminine** ‘girl’ complaints about the Name based on ‘shua’ /  ‘yeshua/h’.

And lookie this
The worship of this *”goddess”* spread throughout all the cultures of the world. She is found in India as the Hindu dawn- *goddess* “Usha/Ushas,” and in Western cultures and religions of today, including Christianity, called **”Easter”**.

And this
answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110219075731AAovnI6
USHA – *Female* Hindi myth name of a demon *princess*.

(Note among the initial complaints is that ‘yeshua/h’ is a feminine verb)

So Attention! – Nothing else will do – Show!

The Biblical verse – with
The stand alone Biblical word – with
The Biblical definition – with
The Biblical reference number

or admit the demon *princess* research and that you are in error.

Of all the barrel chested demanders – No 1 ever has

They have no choice but to admit the demon goddess research

So put up or shut up –

I realize that those who will not be honest & will not be changed; will go on their happy little way as if this never happened – However; You will from now on know that you are in error; with a corresponding reward 2Ths.2:10-12.

Choose Wisely

PS

Did some more research
H3091
יְהוֹשֻׁעַ יְהוֹשׁוּעַ
yehôshûa‛ yehôshûa‛
yeh-ho-shoo’-ah, yeh-ho-shoo’-ah
From H3068 and H3467; Jehovah-saved; Jehoshua (that is, Joshua), the Jewish leader: – Jehoshua, Jehoshuah, Joshua. Compare H1954, H3442.
This does seem to uphold the extra ‘o’ or ‘u’ sound – however as I have said this leaves no opening for the usha written or vocalized pronunciation
Gen_49:18 I have waitedH6960 for thy salvation,H3444 O YHWH.H3068
H3444
יְשׁוּעָה
yeshû‛âh
yesh-oo’-aw
Feminine passive participle of H3467; something saved, that is, (abstractly) deliverance; hence aid, victory, prosperity: – deliverance, health, help (-ing), salvation, save, saving (health), welfare.
Again shua Not usha
So –
Yahweh/Ah/ah and Yahshua can become
Yahuweh/Ah/ah and Yahushua but never usha

Barring ‘usha’ you do have a choice within these confines

Name Evidence (From another exchange)

H3091

יְהוֹשֻׁעַ יְהוֹשׁוּעַ
yeho^shu^a‛ yeho^shu^a‛
yeh-ho-shoo’-ah, yeh-ho-shoo’-ah
From H3068 and H3467; Jehovah-saved; Jehoshua (that is, Joshua), the Jewish leader: – Jehoshua, Jehoshuah, Joshua. Compare H1954, H3442.

I am surprized that you did not make/showcase this observation – But if I am honest I must concede in as much as there does seem to be an apparent anomaly

יְהוֹשֻׁעַ יְהוֹשׁוּעַ
yeho^shu^a‛ yeho^shu^a‛
yeh-ho-shoo’-ah, yeh-ho-shoo’-ah

יְהוֹשֻׁעַ * – * יְהוֹשׁוּעַ – With the 2nd ו (o/u/w) missing –

Hebraically spelt differently but phonetically anglicized the same – Interesting – I am not up with the vowel pointing; top or bottom – 1st off; I do not care for the Babylonian Jewish script dubbed ‘Hebrew’ – but the *kubutz* ‘…’ at the bottom of the ‘shin’ is to have an oo sound; which would make it understandable that ‘yeh-ho-shoo’-ah’ is sited in both cases. I realize you will site Mazoretic tampering – But there’s a difference in crying ‘foul’ and proving it – and that in every case. Happy hunting – knock yourself out. And there’s a point – the whole Babylonian Jewish script itself is 1 gigantic ‘tamper’.

I understand in your rush to expunge ‘shua’ and standardize all understanding to sha / usha but this summarily ignores some indelible facts; for instance that Yahshua is foremostly valid from ‘yeshua/h’ Gen.49:18 – Some stating ‘shua’ means vain – This is not so – neither only or always. So your saying Jacob/Israel waited for Yah’s ‘vain’ salvation ??? Preposterous! And the remaining fact that ‘sha’ is not a stand alone Hebrew word and means nothing – that ‘usha’ is not a stand alone Hebrew word and means nothing. The same point could be made of ‘Yahu’ it is not a stand alone Hebrew word. It is a prefix; it is a suffix; but it does not stand alone.

I admit now; you do have a slim velum of potential proof. But you turn your point on a pinhead hint the supposed whisper of potential proof as if it were the Lion’s share – while manufacturing other unsustainable ‘proofs’; cookie cutting from words to be words – Yet ignore direct indelible proof in favor of your chosen pick – wish it were exclusively so pronunciation. That coincidently makes you the purveyors with the reservoir of special untapped secret (so-called) knowledge. What could be wrong with that picture?

Yet indisputably for all time ‘Yah’ (YHWH) and ‘Shua’ (call/riches) & yeshua/h (salvation) are all stand alone Hebrew words with definable evidence, meaning, definition & biblical use.

That being the normative; the honest cannot exclusively ignore either.

Hallelu-Yah – Reminiscent of Halloo; Yes?  – (Crying Praise to Yah? – not Praise Yahu )

PS – You prefer Yahuah ‘yah-hoo’-ah’? – Consider; Yahshua ‘yah-shoo’-ah’ – Phonetically is a nice fit. AND a nice fit with all the Biblical evidence; Eh? (A) get it?

Sukkot Melkizedeq Mikvah

It was a joy and a blessing to experience true Messianic Melkizedeq harmony and fellowship – Matthew was right; I usually am the outsider. I thank Yahweh both for John Flores and Remnant of Truth Congregation at OPA (Old Paths Assembly) in Lucerne Ca. and Matthew Nolan and Torah to the Tribes at Rivers Bend in Foster Or.
 
I had been 1st baptized in 1996 in a 7th Baptist Church at the beginning of my return – certainly before my research that has lead to the 2 books and multitude of articles – I did become aware that I should rebaptize in to the Melkizedeq Priesthood but knew of no one that had that knowledge – I spoke to Matthew Nolan some time after his video with Jim Staley. Matthew Nolan was enthusiastic when we could get together – I am grateful to him & T2T for this opportunity – to baptize with so many others that seek to understand the Melkizedeq Priesthood.
 
My wife picked out a stone and gave it to me as a memorial of that day – Sabbath 10-3-15 2:30ish
 
I passed by several at different points that were speaking amongst themselves saying basically the similar – That it was very freeing to understand the Melkizedeq Priesthood.
 
The Melkizedeq Priesthood is that eazy & lite burden; certainly not the hard & heavy (Acts 15:10) ‘anchor drag’ of the Levitical Priesthood mind-set or or worse the unbiblical regime of Rabbinics
 
Thanx 1ce again – I pray that your Sukkot was as Blessed and Joyful (even to the more) as ours was
 
Yah’s Blessing & Esteem
