What does it mean that Yahusha the Messiah’s death tore the veil in the Temple to the Holy of Holies?
We see in Scripture that when the Messiah gave his SINFUL FLESH as a sin offering.
Romans 8 …2 For in (covenant with) Yahusha the Messiah, the law of the Spirit of life (The Law with the death decrees covered by the blood of the Lamb) has set you free from the law of sin and death (The Law in the Mosaic Covenant where you sin and die by decree). 3 For what the Law was powerless to do (provide eternal life) in that it was weakened by the flesh (Yahusha too existed imperfect in the FLESH g4561), Yahuah did (provided salvation as HE is the ONLY savior) by sending His own (Firstborn) Son (of the DEAD) in the likeness (exact manner) of SINFUL FLESH (he too had to be perfected through discipline Hebrews 5:8-9), as an offering for sin (he made the sacrifice for HIMSELF as well as us! Hebrews 5:3). He thus (by walking The Way) condemned sin in the (body of his) flesh (by offering his life as a Living OFFERING... through his OBEDIENCE not because he was a perfect god Hebrews 5:7) , 4 so that (by following his example of Mikveh John 13:15) the righteous requirements of the Law might be fulfilled in us (too like it was Yahusha Matthew 3:15 as he fulfilled all Righteousness as Yahuah instructed), who do not (CONTINUE to) live according to the flesh (prone to sin opposed to Yahuah g4561) but according to the Spirit (by renewing your mind through CIRCUMCISION).
- If you are JOYFUL… your life is full of joy!
- If you are PRAYERFUL… your life is full of prayer!
- If you are REGRETFUL… your life is full of regret!
- If you are THANKFUL… your life is full of thanksgiving!
- If the measurement requires a TEASPOONFUL… you fill a teaspoon full of the ingredient!
- If something is PAINFUL… it is full of pain.
- If you are CAREFUL… that means you take close care or your action is full of care.
- If you are HELPFUL… then as a person, you have a character trait that is full of selflessness and help for others.
- If you are BOASTFUL… then as a person, you have a character trait that is full of PRIDE and boating.
- If you are SINFUL or have “sinful flesh”… you have sin in your flesh, for all have sinned… ALL HAVE SINNED… no exception in that statement.
However, when it comes to Yahusha… “sinful flesh” all of the sudden means “without sin!” and giving his body as a “sin offering” all of the sudden means “a sin free life from birth”! OR… is that a lie and twisting of Scripture? Let us examine line upon line, precept upon precept and see if SINFUL FLESH applies to Yahusha in the exact same way every other word with “ful” at the end of it does, or is Yahusha somehow the “exception to every rule”?
http://studybible.info/strongs/G4561 Thayer: 1) flesh (the soft substance of the living body, which covers the bones and is permeated with blood) of both man and beasts 2) the body2a) the body of a man 2b) used of natural or physical origin, generation or relationship 2b1) born of natural generation 2c) the sensuous nature of man, "the animal nature" 2c1) without any suggestion of depravity 2c2) the animal nature with cravings which incite to sin 2c3) the physical nature of man as subject to suffering 3) a living creature (because possessed of a body of flesh) whether man or beast 4) the flesh, denotes mere human nature, the earthly nature of man apart from divine influence, and therefore prone to sin and opposed to God
1 John 4 1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from Yahuah, because many false prophets have gone out into the world (claiming to be the incarnation of God). 2 By this you know the Spirit of Yahuah: every spirit that confesses that Messiah Yahusha has come in the flesh (outside of any diving influence, by normal HUMAN conception, apposed to Yahuah and prone to sin G4561) is from Yahuah; 3 and every spirit that does not confess Yahusha has come in the flesh (but was God in the Flesh) is not from Yahuah; this is the spirit of the antichrist (or False Messiah. The False Messiah is an image of a man worshipped above Yahuah as God Romans 1) … 12 No one has seen Yahuah at any time! (Because Yahusha is not Yahuah in the flesh or a demi-God).
How did Yahusha tear the veil?
Matthew 27:51 51 Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split.
Before Yahusha came to show us The Way… there was a barrier represented by the physical veil between Yahuah and humanity. That “veil” was ignorance (the lack of knowledge of The Way to Yahuah).
Hosea 4:6 my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. "Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.
That veil over our mind is never totally removed until we are resurrected, but it was torn in two.
1 Corinthians 13:12 - Amplified 12 For now [in this time of imperfection] we see in a mirror dimly [a blurred reflection, a riddle, an enigma], but then [when the time of perfection comes we will see reality] face to face. Now I know in part [just in fragments], but then I will know fully, just as I have been fully known [by Yahuah].
Only the High Priest could pass through the veil to the Holy of Holies and they had to be purified and sanctified to pass through that veil. The reason for that barrier or veil is that we did not understand how we too can be prepared and brought to righteous perfection through Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering. It took a perfected High Priest of the House of Zadok to show us The Way by example, to give us that knowledge and tear down the veil of ignorance over our minds.
The Temple of Solomon was a physical shadow pointing us to the ultimate truth that our body is His Temple, our hearts are his altar, and our minds are The Holy of Holies!
To enter into His presence at that level and intimacy… we have to be “perfected”. Yahusha showed us the Way to that state of purity required to stand before Yahuah, as he was perfected through suffering discipline, then his body was purified through Mikveh, his mind through Circumcision, then he was pure and could enter the Holy Place and lay down his life
Hebrews 10:20 19 Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the 'blood of Yahusha' (idiom for The Yahushaic Covenant), 20 by the new and living way (of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering our lives as Living Sacrifices) he opened the veil for us through (his sinful) body (by showing us The Way and laying down his life as a sin offering), 21 and since we have a high priest over the house of Yahuah (our body), 22 let us draw near (to our Father crying Abba Father) with a sincere heart (Circumcision) in full assurance of faith (that Yahusha's example tore the veil), having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and our bodies washed with pure living water (Mikveh).…
Then, by laying down that example, he BECAME the “author/the way/example” of how we too can purify our bodies, sanctify our minds, and then that “veil” is torn and we can enter “pure” as he did.
Hebrews 5:8-9 8 though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience (to Yahuah) by the things (discipline) which He suffered (from Yahuah as His son Hebrews 12:7). 9 And having been perfected (through Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering), He (his example) became the author (way) of eternal salvation to all who obey Him (and follow his example), 1 John 3 …2 Beloved, we are now children of Yahuah, and what we will be has not yet been revealed. We know that when Yahusha appears, we will be like Him, for when we see Him we will be as He is now. 3 And everyone who has this hope (of being purified) in (covenant with) Him purifies himself (through Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering), just as He is pure (after he too followed The Way).
So, in covenant with Yahusha, we walk The Way he showed us, where we are purified in body (Mikveh), Mind (Circumcision), and Spirit (by offering our lives as Living Sacrifices) to that the veil that once stood between humanity and Yahuah is then taken out of the way in each of His born again children, as we too become His Children and Priests and are found worthy to stand in His Presence.
John 1 12 But to all who did receive his example (as the True Way that leads to Eternal Life ie The Way, The Truth, and the Life), to those who believed in the Covenant that bears His name (The Yahushaic Covenant), He gave the right to become adopted children of Yahuah — 13 children born not of blood (but LIVING WATER), nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man (but through reverent obedience ie Circumcision), but born of Yahuah (by following The Way).
Instead of there being a “veil” between us and the Creator, we become ONE with Him as adopted children… This is the concept behind the Bride wearing a veil at the wedding, and upon becoming “one” with the Groom, the Groom removes the veil from over the Brides head/face.
It is in covenant with our Bridegroom, the Messiah. As we celebrate the Heavenly Wedding and become one with him through covenant, he removes the veil and we too become one family with Yahuah.
John 17:19-21 "And for their sakes I sanctify myself (Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering), that they also might be sanctified through the true Way. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word (enter into The Yahushaic Covenant); That they all may be one (family); as you, are in (covenant with) me to my Father, and I in (covenant with) you (to be your Son), that they also may be one in (covenant with) us (as my Bride): that the world may believe that thou hast sent me (to fulfill The Heavenly Scroll)."
Yahusha had to lay down his SINFUL FLESH and that sacrifice was for his sins too!
Hebrews 5:3 This is why he has to offer sacrifices for his own sins, as well as for the sins of the people.
Yahusha was NOT born a perfect demi-god, but rather “in the flesh” imperfect and disobedient like all men. He was raised by Yahuah who heard his cries for help because he obeyed The Way of the Nazarene not because he was some kind of demi-god. Yahusha fulfilled the Law through Mikveh not from birth.
Hebrews 5:8-9 8 though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience (to Yahuah) by the things (discipline Hebrews 12) which He suffered (from his Father for disobedience). 9 And having been perfected (through suffering discipline as all children are), He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey his example (and walk The Way of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering on Passover) Hebrews 5:7 While Yahusha was here on earth (in sinful LEAVENED flesh), he offered prayers and pleadings (in the Garden of Gethsemane demonstrating CIRCUMCION), with a loud cry and tears, to the one (and ONLY God John 17:3) who could rescue him from death (because he was NOT a god and could not raise himself). And Yahuah (the Saviour) heard his prayers because of his deep reverence (reverent submission to the will of) for Yahuah (Zechariah Chapter 3). Matthew 3:15 Yahusha replied, "Let me be Mikveh'd now; it is proper (required by Yahuah) for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness (fulfill The Law)." Then John consented.
In fact, Yahusha was so worried about “his sinful flesh” that he was literally scared to death to die and even tried to get out of it… 3 times!
Matthew 36 36 Then Yahusha went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, “Sit here while I go over there and pray (to get out of this mess of having to die).” 37 He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled (because he knew he was not perfect from birth and was "sinful"). 38 Then he said to them, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death (another way of saying "I am scared to death to die!"). Stay here (while I go and try and get out of it before Judas arrives and it is too late) and keep watch with me.” 39 Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.” 40 Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. “Couldn’t you men keep watch with me for one hour?” he asked Peter. 41 “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak (he said this because he had just fallen to the temptation of his own flesh, his Spirit was willing, but his flesh was weak and he wanted out of it).” 42 He went away a second time (to try again to get out of it) and prayed, “My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.” 43 When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy. 44 So he left them and went away once more and prayed the third time (to be SURE there was no way out of having to give his SINFUL FLESH as a SIN OFFERING), saying the same thing.
Once Yahusha had been washed clean of sin, fulfilling The Law, and Yahuah showed him a VISION of the Heavenly Scroll opening up to confirm he was the one spoken of in the stars… Yahusha fled into the desert to be the first High Priest of Israel (and last) to be consecrated High Priest directly by Yahuah. We see this in Zechariah Chapter 3, where Yahuah confirmed Yahusha has “fulfilled all righteousness through Mikveh”:
Zechariah Chapter 3 3 Now Yahusha was dressed in filthy clothes (metaphor of sin) as he stood before the angel. 4 The angel said to those who were standing before him, “Take off his filthy clothes.” Then Yahuah said to Yahusha, “See High Priest Yahusha (after taking off his filthy rags), I have taken away your sin (fifthly rags Isaiah 64:6), and I will put fine garments (of the High Priest) on you.”
From that point forward as HIGH PRIEST, Yahusha “was with no sin”…
Hebrews 4 14 Therefore, since we have such a great high priest who has passed through the heavens (passed the test of The Heavenly Scroll), Yahusha the (firstborn of the dead/resurrection) Son of Yahuah, let us hold firmly to what we profess (our faith in Mikveh). 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have a HIGH PRIEST who was tempted in every way (in the desert) that we are, yet was without sin. 16 Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence (that Yahuah will forgive our sin through Mikveh too), so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need (as we too cry out to our Father for salvation... because Yahuah accepted Yahusha who was not perfect either but because he obeyed Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering).
Yahusha showed us The Way to remove the Veil
Yahusha “came in the flesh” and was not a demi-god or “God in the flesh”! He was created human of natural origin, to two human parents outside of any “divine seed” or even “divine influence”… and by definition he too had to overcome living “according to the flesh” be trained to “live according to the Spirit” as his example is The WAY.
Romans 8 …4 so that (by following The Way of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering) the righteous standard of the Law might be fulfilled in us (we "fulfill all Righteousness" through Mikveh just like Yahusha did to "fulfill the Law"), who do not live according to the flesh ('sarki' prone to sin and opposed to Yahuah) but according to the Spirit (by renewing our minds DAILY through Circumcision Romans 12:2 and Ephesians 4:23). 5 Those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh (and have a VEIL over the Holy of Holies/Mind); but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit (and the VEIL is removed). 6 The mind of the flesh is death (because the VEIL over your minds prevents you from entering into Yahuah's presence), but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace (because the VEIL is removed and Yahuah adopts you as His Son),…
Romans 12 1Therefore I urge you, brothers, on account of Yahuah's mercy (offering His Firstborn Son of the DEAD to show us The Way by example), to offer your bodies as living sacrifices (on Passover through The Narrow Gate), holy and pleasing to Yahuah (through MIKVEH), which is your spiritual service of worship (ON PASSOVER which was the focus of all Sha'ul's writtings 1 Corinthians 1). 2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind (CIRCUMCISION). Then you will be able to discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of Yahuah. 3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but think of yourself with sober judgment, according to the measure of faith Yahuah has given you.…
Ephesians 4 …22 You were taught to put off your former way of life (through MIKVEH to die to your past and be washed clean then raised in a newness of a SACRIFICIAL OFFERING ie living sacrifice), your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23 to be renewed in the spirit of your minds (CIRCUMCISION); 24 and to put on the new self (OFFERING your live as a Living Sacrifice), created to be like Yahuah in true righteousness and holiness.…
We now have been delivered from our ignornace (lack of knwledge) and Yahusha has come to fufill The Heavenly Scroll and show us by his life example how we too can fulfill The Law, purify our bodies, sancify our minds, and tear down that “veil” that stands between us and our Father.
Rav Sha’ul (the Nazarene)
From the book The Narrow Gate by Rav Sha’ul
Matthew 3 16 As soon as Yahusha was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of Yahuah descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased!”…
The Mystery Language
Matthew 13 10 The disciples came to him and asked, ‘Why do you speak to the people in parables?’ 11 He replied, ‘Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. 12 Whoever has (the Spirit of Holiness) will be given (speaking of a future date when Yahuah pour out His Spirit) more (hidden knowledge), and they will have an abundance (of Spiritual understanding). Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. 13 This is why I speak to them in parables.
1 Corinthians 2:4-15 4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom (Sha'ul and Yahusha did not speak in literal terms), but in the demonstration of the Spirit of Holiness and of power (which gives us understanding of hidden things): 5 That your faith should not stand in the (literal) wisdom of men (to be taken literally), but in the power of Yahuah (In a Mystery Language taught only by The Holy Spirit to a chosen few). 6 However we (Yahuah’s Chosen Few) speak wisdom (Spiritual Understanding) among them that are perfect (perfected by The Spirit of Holiness): yet not the wisdom (literal / pagan / natural understanding) of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nothing (they do not understand The Bible language): 7 But we (Yahuah’s Chosen Few) speak the wisdom of Yahuah in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which (this Mystery Language) Yahuah ordained before the world (revealed in The Heavenly Scroll) unto our glory: 8 Which none of the princes of this world knew (the hidden mystery language of Yahuah that His Word is written in): for had they known it (this Mystery Language, the meaning of The Heavenly Scroll), they would not have crucified the King of glory (on Passover, because that is what The Stars Proclaim Psalm 19).

The Mystery Revealed!
Matthew 3:16-17 As soon as Yahusha was Mikveh’d, he came up out of the Living Water. At that moment, (now the rest of this is metaphorically speaking g3708) The Heavenly Scroll was opened (Revelation 4:1), an “he saw a VISION of” (g3708metaphorically speaking “in his mind”), the Ruach “being given to Yahusha” (g2064). 17 And he perceived in his mind (g3708) a SHOFAR BLAST (g5456Yahuah’s voice is seen coming out of The Heavenly Scroll as a loud Shofar Blast Revelation 4:1) coming (down) from The Heavenly Scroll and (the stars) proclaimed (the Glory of Yahuah Psalm 19, who is Yahusha Hebrews 1:3), “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased! (confirming that Yahusha is the fulfillment of The Heavenly Scroll)”
g3708 horáō properly, see, often with metaphorical meaning: "to see with the mind" (i.e. spiritually see), i.e. perceive (with inward spiritual perception).
The word traditionally translated “rested on” or “descended” is properly “given” in context of Yahuah giving His Ruach:
g2064 erchomai arrival (1), arrived (1), brought (1), came (225), come (222), comes (64), coming (87), entered (2), expected (3), fall (2), falls (1), ***** GIVE ****(1), go (1), going (2), grown (1), lighting (1), next (1), turned (1), went (18).
The word translated “proclaimed, say” is:
g3004 légō "laying an argument to rest," i.e. bringing a message to closure
The word translated “voice” should be in context “blast” as that is the FIRST definition!
g5456 phóné blasts (1), cry (1), language (1), languages (1), outcry (1), sound (15), sounds (4), statement (1), tone (1), utterance (3), utterances (1), voice (102), voices (7).
It was at that moment, that the long wait for the one foretold in The Heavenly Scroll was realized, and all the debate over which “demi-god” was the one prophesied in the heavens was settled. This is confirmed in Psalm 19… The Heavenly Scroll (the stars) proclaim that Yahusha is the Glory of Yahuah, not an audible voice! It is “metaphorically” speaking just like Matthew 3.
Psalm 19 1 The heavens proclaim the glory of Yahuah (which is Yahusha Hebrews 1:3); the stars proclaim the work of his hands. 2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. 3 They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them.
What John witnessed in Matthew 3:16-17, was Yahuah revealing to him in his Spirit that Yahusha was the fulfillment of The Heavenly Scroll! Yahuah “laid the argument to rest” as to who was the fulfillment of The Heavenly Scroll by revealing to John “in his mind” that Yahusha was The Messiah, and Yahuah had adopted him as Yahusha was being born again… John was Elijah, The High Priest of Israel… and the people were waiting for John to proclaim to them who the messiah was… John got his answer “in his mind” Spiritually discerned at that moment… and then went forth from there and proclaimed Yahusha was the Messiah!
This same thing happened to John the Revelator, as “Heaven” opened up for him too, and a shofar blast proclaimed to him Yahusha is the fulfillment of The Plan of Salvation written in The Heavenly Scroll.
Revelation 4 1 The Throne in Heaven After this I looked, and behold, a door was opened in The Heavenly Scroll; and the first voice which I heard was (Yahuah, the Aleph/Tav), as it were, of a Shofar Blast talking with me”
I produced a video on exactly what John “saw” below proving it was The Heavenly Scroll….

From my book The Narrow Gate, Chapter 1.
John 13:15 For I have given you an example (Spiritual Path), that you should do as I have done (offer our own lives as living sacrificial lambs on Passover).
Yahusha made that statement on Passover as he laid down the example of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering. We see this same idea enforced again in 1 Peter:
1 Peter 2:21 21 But if you suffer for doing good (give your life as a Living Sacrifice) and you endure it (you will be perfected just like Yahusha was perfected, through suffering, ultimately perfected on Passover), this (life sacrifice) is commendable before Yahuah. 21 To this (giving your own lives as living sacrificial lambs on Passover) you were called (Exodus 12:1-3), because the Messiah suffered (on Passover) for you (and tore the Veil giving you access to the Altar of Yahuah Matthew 27:51), leaving you an example (of what to do as he fulfilled the Spiritual meaning of Passover), that you should follow in his steps (and bring your own offering on Passover to the Altar of Yahuah).
Please note, by living sacrifice I do not mean to imply we all must literally die on Passover. We are to die “to self”, and live a sacrificial life in service to our King, in obedience to Yahuah’s will.
The Passover is far more than just a retelling of the Exodus out of Egypt. It is more than just Yahusha suffering to pay the penalty of our transgression on the torture stake on Passover. The blood of the Passover Lamb (and the foreshadowing of the Messiah’s role) is The Scarlet Thread of Redemption that runs throughout the entire Word of Yahuah. It is His Plan of Salvation!
This Scarlet Thread of Redemption is foretold in The Heavenly Scroll then runs:
- from the prophecy in Genesis that the seed of a woman will crush the enemy
- then a lamb slaughtered to “cover” the sinful parts of the bodies of Adam and Eve after they fell
- through Abraham sacrificing his first-born son Isaac, who was delivered by the sacrifice of a ram
- leading to the Exodus where the blood of the lamb covered the first born, and the angel of death passed over the homes who entered into that covenant
- culminating with Yahusha transposing these prophecies, physical metaphors, and rehearsals to their Spiritual Truths. Showing us The Way unto salvation leading us through The Narrow Gate as the Good Shepherd of all the lambs of Yahuah to…
- being expressed in faith each year by offering our own lives as living sacrifices on Passover, following in the footsteps of The Messiah to…
- finding completion with the return of Yahusha and the GREATER Exodus into the Millennial Kingdom. When Yahusha gathers all the spotless lambs of Yahuah. Those who have followed his example on Passover and offered themselves as spotless lambs on the altar to Yahuah each year in obedience to His Law! Then the fulfillment of Mikveh is realized and the land and people cleansed of their sin!
Passover Fundamental in all Covenants
We see that the Passover is far more than just a “Jewish” ritual given to Moses (who, by the way, was not even Jewish). It is a fundamental principle in the Plan of Salvation i.e. The Scarlet Thread of Redemption in every covenant:
- The Edenic Covenant – lamb that was slaughtered from the foundation of the world, written in the stars
- The Adamic Covenant – lamb slaughter to make clothing to cover sin
- The Noahic Covenant – Genesis 8:20, the first thing Noah did after the flood is… make an Altar and sacrifice a “clean animal” i.e. a Lamb on the Altar.
- The Abrahamic Covenant – lamb slaughtered to provide Salvation from death of the promised son Isaac and his descendants
- Coming out of bondage – Israelites slaughtered a personal lamb and put the blood on the doorpost to save the firstborn, leading them out of bondage through the Passover
- The Mosaic Covenant – each family brought their own sacrificial Passover lamb as a sacrifice on Passover
- The Yahushaic Covenant – each son of Yahuah follows Yahusha’s footsteps in examining their own lives for spot or blemish and offering their lives as living sacrifices on Passover
Yahuah’s Moedim – We all are Passover Lambs!
We are taught that Yahusha is the only Passover Lamb. Is that true? No, we are all living sacrificial lambs offered on Passover!
Yahuah gave us His instruction and laid out a “Moedim”, or rehearsal, for us to learn this vital Spiritual Truth. This rehearsal was to illustrate physically the concept of personal sacrifice. In this rehearsal, defined in The Torah, Yahuah had the children of Israel take one of their most prized lambs and slaughter it, one for each household. We must understand the personal sacrifice this was to them. They relied on their flocks for milk, meat, and for trade. This was a significant personal sacrifice that each family had to make in terms of their personal resources. There was not just one sacrificial lamb… there were many.
Yahuah was teaching our ancestors (who were Spiritually immature children) the value of personal sacrifice that was later to come in The Yahushaic Covenant when that “lamb” we would bring would be our own lives! Below is the definition of the physical rehearsal, notice that each man had to offer his own Passover Lamb:
Exodus 12 - the Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread 1 Yahuah said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, 2 “This month is to be for you the first month, the first month of your year. 3 Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one for each household. … 5 The animals you choose must be year-old males without defect, and you may take them from the sheep or the goats. 6 Take care of them until the fourteenth day of the month, when all the members of the community of Israel must slaughter them (there were many Passover Lambs) at twilight.
We have lost sight of this legal requirement today. We are not properly taught The Law and we simply say “Jesus did it all for us” and then go about keeping pagan celebrations. When what really happened, was Yahusha paved the way, tore the Veil, and we all are to bring our own lives (by Law) and lay them down at his Altar every Passover!
Yahuah promised a “new covenant”…where the final fulfillment of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering is realized
Ezekiel 36:26 – Mikveh, Circumcision, Offering 25 "Then I will sprinkle clean living water on you (MIKVEH), and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. 26 "Moreover, I will give you a new (CIRCUMCIZED) heart (for the Intent of My Law) and put a new (loving) spirit (for the intent of My Law) within you; and I will remove the (ritualistic) heart of stone (obedience to the Letter alone) from your flesh (which is enmity toward My Law) and give you a heart of flesh. 27 "I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances (to bring your own Passover Lamb OFFERING to the Altar Exodus 12:1-3).…
From my book The Narrow Gate pages 2-10
John 10:1-4 “The one (Yahusha) who enters by the narrow gate (of Passover) is the Shepherd (Bridegroom) of the sheep (Bride). The Gatekeeper (Father of the Bride/Groom, Yahuah) opens the gate for him (Yahusha), and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out (of bondage to sin and death, through The Narrow Gate). When he has brought out all his own (from among the nations), he goes on ahead of them (into The Kingdom), and his sheep follow him (walking in his footsteps by The Way through The Narrow Gate into the Kingdom) because they know his voice”
The question is “what is The Way” and what is “The Narrow Gate”?
How it all went wrong
There are two Messiahs prophesied in Scripture. There is only one, however, prophesied by Yahuah in the Heavenly Scroll. Over time, our descendants lost contact (coming out of Babylon) with the message contained in The Heavenly Scroll. The Plan of Salvation was foretold in the heavens, where one man (the strong man) would run the course of a Wedding as the Bridegroom (Psalms 19). He would give his life for his Bride as a ransom/dowry, and he is portrayed as “a Lamb that has been slaughtered from the foundation of the world” in the stars. Eternal life would result from his death, and he would come back for his Bride, and ultimately be victorious over the dragon. For more on this, please read Creation Cries Out! The Mazzaroth.
The Plan of Salvation in The Heavenly Scroll was further articulated by His Prophets, where this Heavenly Wedding in the stars was laid out, in more detail in the Earthly Scroll by the Feast Cycle.
This Feast Cycle portrays the Engagement (the Spring Feasts) and the Wedding (the Fall Feasts). In this yearly rehearsal of The Heavenly Wedding, the Spring Feasts were designed to teach us about the Engagement, where the Bride and Groom are made ready on the ‘preparation day’, then the Groom would pay the “dowry” and redeem his Bride with his own life, shedding his own blood to consummate the Marriage covenant. They would then be Engaged, and commit to the Wedding Vows on Shav’uot. Then the Fall Feasts are a rehearsal of the Wedding itself, whereas laid out in The Heavenly Scroll, the Father chooses a Bride for His son, and the Bride is revealed on Earth, then the Bride is risen to meet her Groom (Trumpets). Then the Bride and Groom are wed (on the Day of Atonement) and they atone for Creation together. Then the Wedding Supper of the Lamb takes place over a 7-day feast (Tabernacles).
All this knowledge was lost in Babylonian Captivity. The House of Judah began longing for their King to return and deliver them from bondage to the nations and establish his Kingdom. They didn’t want the Engagement, they wanted to jump directly to the Wedding, without the Groom fulfilling his responsibilities to the Father by paying the dowry to first redeem the Bride.
All of this is spoken in prophecy as The Messiah ben Joseph (suffering servant) and Messiah ben David (conquering King). There is an order proclaimed in The Heavenly Scroll and fulfillment had to be in that order. We see that even John the Immerser, the fulfillment of Elijah, was unsure how these prophecies would be fulfilled.
Luke 7:19 19 And John, calling two of his disciples to him, sent them to Yahusha, saying, Are You the Coming One (who comes twice), or should we expect another (Messiah to come as King)?
By the time the Messiah came to redeem his Bride, the High Priesthood had fallen, and the Temple had come under the control of “Priests” appointed by Rome. They did not prepare the House of Judah for the reality of the Messiah’s role, they were only interested in the “business of The Temple” (sound familiar?). When the Messiah did come, he was the fulfillment, by bloodline, to both the Throne of David and the Office of Zadok High Priest. He was the long-awaited Melchi Tsedek. He was the one prophesied to restore both the Throne and the Priesthood (which had fallen into the hands of Rome), and Yahusha was a threat (as the true High Priest and King of Israel), therefore he had to die (as did all the other Zadok Priests and aspiring Davidian Princes under Herod’s pogroms).
The people of Israel heard, those threatened by Yahusha, teach them lies (in the Synagogues and Temple) about how Yahusha was an imposter and had not come to liberate them. Therefore, he was not the long-awaited Messiah. The people of Judah were led astray and did not recognize their Messiah because they did not understand The Heavenly Scroll, the prophecies of the two Messiahs, or the meaning of the Feast Cycle. Everything had become a burdensome “ritualistic task” with no meaning. The loving intent of the Glorious Wedding was replaced with enmity toward Yahuah and His instructions in Righteousness. They were just “going through the motions”.
Spiritually this was according to the Plan of Yahuah. The House of Judah had to be the ones to make the sacrifice of the Lamb, so Yahuah had set this plan in motion. He would blind their eyes so that Yahusha could pay the dowry and redeemed his Bride from the Law of Sin and Death (sin and you die by decree). If they had accepted him, they would never have allowed him to die on Passover. It is interesting, that even though they did not understand, they proclaimed the truth of “what” he was doing.
John 11 49 But one of them, Caiaphas, who was High Priest that year, said to them, "You know nothing at all, 50 nor do you take into account that it is expedient for you that one man die for the people, and that the whole nation not perish." 51 Now he did not say this on his own initiative, but being High Priest that year, he prophesied that Yahusha was going to die for the nation”
Initially, just after the Messiah came, there were true Nazarenes who knew the Scriptures and understood The Heavenly Scroll, such as Sha’ul. They taught in the synagogues, and the Jews came to their Messiah in drovers. The Nazarenes exploded on the scene and outnumbered every other sect in Israel (Pharisees, Sadducees, Essenes, Zealots, etc.). Soon, however, the Jews fell victim to Hellenism, and Judaism was overcome by Hellenism (this is admitted even by Jews today when Gamaliel, Sha’ul’s mentor, died). Gamaliel, the greatest Rabbi in Jewish history (outside of John the Immerser, Yahusha the Messiah, and Sha’ul the Apostle whom they deny), even accepted Yahusha as the Messiah (which Judaism denies today). Gamaliel maintained his position in the power elite of The Temple to use his influence to protect the Nazarenes. Once Judaism succumbed to Hellenism, they wrote lies in the Talmud about Yahusha, and literally outlawed Nazarenes from entering the Synagogues. The Nazarenes were forced into hiding and the House of Judah was at the mercy of Hellenized Rabbinical Judaism where it remains today. For more information, see my book The Nazarene!
You can’t become part of Judaism without renouncing the Messiah because they have been taught lies about their King for 2000 years. That is compounded by Christianity who presents the world with a total false Greek demi-god patterned after Tammuz and Antiochus (who abolished The Law). All the prophetic Scriptures pointing to the Messiah were “re-introduced” by Rabbinical Judaism. Now, these Scriptures that plainly prove Yahusha is the Messiah are mistaught as though these Scriptures were about the nation of Israel, and not about the Messiah. The fact is… the people of Judah today are never properly introduced to their Messiah! For more on this topic, see my 5 part Facebook Note on the lies of Judaism here.
There will come a day when Yahuah will raise up true Nazarenes who are equipped to reason with the Jews from their own scriptures (as Sha’ul did) and explain to them everything I just said. They will introduce them to the true Messiah. They will begin to see Yahusha for who he really was: The High Priest of Israel, King of Israel, the fulfillment of The Heavenly Scroll, and the most influential man in history, was one of their own. They will reclaim the greatest “Jew” who ever lived back to themselves. Yahusha will return to receive them as their King at that time, and then come as the Messiah ben David and setup his Kingdom.
Yahusha is The Way to Yahuah
For 2000 years, we all have been misled on how to enter The Narrow Gate by Christianity and Judaism. We keep the baptized pagan rituals of Easter or the Seder. Instead of properly preparing ourselves as the Bride of the Messiah… we have fallen from The Way (which is the example Yahusha set on Passover):
John 13:15 15"For I gave you an example that you also should do as I did to you. 16 "Truly, truly, I say to you, a slave is not greater than his Master, nor is one who is sent greater than the One who sent him.
He then proceeded to be Mikveh’d, Circumcised, and brought his life to the Altar as a living sacrificial Offering. By making the proper sacrifice, the Veil was torn, giving us all access to the Altar of Yahuah to bring our own lives as living sacrifices as The Law prescribes! Sadly, no one understands these Spiritual Truths laid out by the example Yahusha set. Only those who are prepared properly as His Bride will be risen to participate in The Wedding.
Ephesians 5 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as the Messiah (the Groom) loved the body (his Bride) and gave himself up for her (as the Passover Lamb) 26 to make her Holy, (ritually) cleansing her by the washing with living water (Mikveh) through The Commandments (Circumcision), 27 and to present her (properly) to himself as a radiant assembly, without spot or wrinkle or any other blemish (as spotless Passover Lambs of Yahuah, “Offering”), but Holy and blameless.
Yahusha the Messiah came the first time to fulfill The Passover Season. Passover is The Narrow Gate that leads us out of bondage and into the Kingdom of Yahuah.
What this book will address
There are two issues facing the Nazarene followers of Yahusha today concerning Yahuah’s Appointed Times:
- When do we celebrate these Appointed Times?
- How do we properly fulfill our roles in these prophetic rehearsals?
I wrote this book to answer those two questions clearly so that the Nazarene Assembly of true believers will be faithful to meet Yahuah on His Appointed Feasts and in a way that brings Glory to Him. We must know The Way that we can properly fulfill our role as the Bride of the Messiah (not Yahuah) by preparing ourselves through Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering.
For 2000 years, the traditions of Hellenized Rabbinical Judaism and the pagan false religion of Christianity has dominated the hearts and minds of the people. We were all brought up committing The Abomination of Desolation by keeping Easter over Passover (as I will explain later). We came out of Babylon, repented, and looked for answers as to “how” we keep His Appointed Times; we then began following the human traditions of the Pharisees, known today as Rabbinical Judaism. We literally went from one pagan ritual to another, remaining unfaithful in our attempts at obedience by not following the example set by Yahusha on Passover. This book will give us all clear instructions on how to properly enter The Narrow Gate by following the “true way that leads to Eternal life” … The Truth, the Way, and the Life example of our Messiah.
The Narrow Gate is very narrow, and very few there are that find it! In this book, I am going to explain that “Narrow Gate”, and why it is so very narrow. Below is a free copy of The Narrow Gate.

Eating Swine Flesh
As with all things physical… “eating” has a Spiritual Truth associated with it. If we are going to be Righteous Judges, this physical to Spiritual Parallel must be firmly established. If we do not, we will become self-righteous in our judgment and condemn others in our ignorance of His Word! I am going to build to a MAJOR Scriptural Truth that will probably shock everyone, and overcome a very serious abuse of The Torah in the process…
We see all the prophets (John, David, Ezekiel, Jeremiah etc.) were commanded to “Eat the Heavenly Scroll”:
Ezekiel 3:3 Then he said to me, "Son of man, eat this scroll I am giving you and fill your stomach with it." So I ate it, and it tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth. Jeremiah 15:16 Your words were found, and I ate them, and your words became to me a joy and the delight of my heart, for I am called by your name, O Yahuah, God of hosts. Revelation 10:9-10 So I went to the angel and told him to give me the little scroll. And he said to me, “Take and eat it; it will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey.” Psalm 119:101-103 How sweet are your words (preserved in The Heavenly Scroll Psalms 119:89) to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Job 23:12 I have not departed from the commandment of his lips; I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my portion of food. Psalm 19:10 More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb.
We see Yahusha instruct us to “eat his flesh and drink his blood”
John 6 55 For My flesh is real food, and My blood is real drink. 56 Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood remains in Me, and I in him. 57 Just as the living Father sent Me (in fulfillment of The Heavenly Scroll Matthew 6:10) and I live because of the Father, so also the one who feeds on Me will live because of Me.
What is going on here?
How do we Spiritually Appraise this physical shadow of “eating” and properly employ The Mystery Language? In this section, I am going to help us understand “eating pork” and why it appears in Scripture to be so devastating to your life that Yahuah declares you will utterly perish!
Isaiah 66:17 …16 For Yahuah will execute judgment by fire And by His sword on all flesh, And those slain by Yahuah will be many. 17" Those who sanctify and purify themselves to go to the gardens, Following one in the center, Who eat swine's flesh, detestable things and mice, Will come to an end altogether," declares Yahuah.
One of the most grievous sins unto Yahuah is to abuse His Torah and self-righteously condemn others by the letter of the Law as I have shown so far in this book. One of the most damaging examples of this are what I call “Torah Nazis”; those who abuse the Scriptures and the Dietary Laws casting condemnation on others out of their own ignorance. These Torah Nazis go about with the Torah in hand ready to “beat the daylights out of any and every one “by the letter“… while they themselves are lost in the “Milk” of the Word (the Letter), always “learning but never coming to the knowledge of the Truth” which is found in the Meat of the Word (Intent).
2 Timothy 3 1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving (in Judgment), slanderous (judging others by the Letter not Intent), without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Yahuah— 5 having a form of godliness (religiously obeying the Letter) but denying its power (the INTENT). Have nothing to do with such people. ... 7 always learning (to do this or that “by the Letter”) but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth (of the Intent of the Law).
“Eating” is a Metaphor
Eating is a metaphor for “what you accept as truth, what you put your faith in, what you believe, etc.” Eating “food” is a physical to Spiritual Parallel of digesting the Truth or accepting a lie. Sha’ul the Apostle used “eating” as a metaphor in this way as I have shown in this book, the prophets used it in this way, and Yahusha did as well…
We don’t literally “eat” The Heavenly Scroll or Earthly Scrolls, Yahusha was not literally saying we are to slice him up barbecue his remains and eat him. He was speaking in The Mystery Language that he was The Lamb and later at the Last Supper/Chagigah Meal, on the Eve of Passover, he further elaborated on this, telling us that we are to keep Passover and eat the Lamb in honor and remembrance of his sacrifice. We are to accept Yahusha as the Messiah and put our faith in his sacrifice to cover our sin as the blood of the Lamb. In other words, we are to “eat his flesh and drink his blood”. In this way, “Lamb” is singled out among all animals as a shadow of the true sacrifice. We are to “eat lambs flesh” metaphorically speaking (and literally on Passover) to demonstrate we are in covenant with Yahuah through Yahusha’s blood.
So, what about “eating swine flesh”? Is Yahuah so petty that He is going to literally destroy everyone who has bacon bits on their house salad?!?!?!
NO! That is a classic example of immaturity trying to understand The Law by the letter when it is appraised Spiritually.
1 Corinthians 2 14 The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of Yahuah (understanding of Intent) but considers them (the Intent of the Law) foolishness (because they think Righteousness is based on obedience to the Letter), and cannot understand them (the Intent of His Law) because they (the Intent of the Law) are spiritually appraised
NOTE – PORK IS NOT FOOD! DO NOT EAT IT. IT IS BAD FOR YOUR BODY. The Dietary Laws are “instructions” from a loving Father on how to eat healthy. The penalty for breaking the Dietary Laws is NOT that Yahuah is going to kick you out of His Kingdom… the penalty is bad health. Eating pork, shellfish, etc. is simply not a good choice if you want to “live a long life” as Yahuah has Instructed (Torah). The “intent” of the Dietary Laws/Instructions is that we should not just consume everything that taste good and watch what we eat and take care of our physical bodies as they are His Temple. It only BEGINS with the Dietary Laws as most of what we eat today we literally manufacture. We were supposed to be mature and understand the intent behind what Yahuah was telling us.
I have to just shake my head when I see these Torah Nazis out judging everyone by the letter, miss-teaching the Dietary Instructions taking them extremely literal while denying their Intent. I look at their photos and they are grossly overweight… addicted to coffee, soft drinks, prescription pills, and probably consume every processed food they can get their hands on… yet they “throw the book” at someone for eating a piece of bacon on their cheeseburger.
So then… why do the Scriptures single out “swine flesh” and seemingly say if you eat it you are going to “hell and don’t pass Go”? What is the REAL Truth of this matter… I am going to help us all understand this and tie it all together with “eating” as a metaphor and “The Lamb” as the proper sacrifice and show us all why if you eat “swine flesh” you cannot enter His Kingdom.
Scripture is not understood in isolation, it MUST be understood in “context” as follows as I have laid out in this book:
- Historical Context
- Textual Context (kept in context not sound bitten)
- Scriptural Context (kept in context of the Torah/Prophets and Heavenly Scroll)
- Spiritual Context (all Truth is revealed through physical to Spiritual Parallels)
Today Scripture is misunderstood because it is taken out of context. We sound bit verses and even sentences within a verse totally out of context of what the Scriptures are saying. This is the case with eating swine flesh. We fail to put that into context of HISTORY dating back to Babylon where the false sacrifice was established as The Ishtar Pig or “eating swine flesh” as a sacrifice.
The Bible is a story of two “Messiahs” and two religions…
- The False Messiah or “Beast/Pig of the Earth”
- The True Messiah the Lamb of Yahuah.
The Way of the Gentiles
The “Way of the Gentiles” is eating swine flesh AS A SACRIFICE to their pagan demi-gods which are all fashioned after Tammuz in Babylon as Mystery Babylon was spread across the Earth at the tower of Babel. The False Messiah is the fulfillment of the corrupted Zodiac. For more on Mystery Babylon and what that religion truly is, read my book:
“The way of the gentiles” is a term used often in The Bible and in every case it speaking of the religious practices of the pagan Gentiles it is not referring to a physical path or destination. Below we see the same phrase “the way of the Gentiles” referring to the religious practices or those who display the religious practices of pagans. The phrase “Way of the Gentiles” is translated in various translation to illustrate that it is an Idiom of “the pagan ways of the Gentile Nations”:
Jeremiah 10:2 New International Version - This is what the LORD says: "Do not learn the ways of the nations or be terrified by signs in the heavens, though the nations are terrified by them. NET Bible - The LORD says, "Do not start following pagan religious practices. Do not be in awe of signs that occur in the sky even though the nations hold them in awe. GOD'S WORD® Translation - This is what the LORD says: Don't learn the practices of the nations. Don't be frightened by the signs in the sky because the nations are frightened by them. Jubilee Bible 2000 - Thus hath the LORD said, Do not learn the way of the Gentiles, and do not fear the signs of heaven, even though the Gentiles fear them.
The Way of the Gentiles is eating swine flesh as a sacrifice to demi-gods on the Spring Equinox… “Easer”. For more on this subject, see my book The Kingdom.
The “Way of Israel” is eating lamb AS A SACRIFICE on Passover to cover sin pointing to the role of the True Messiah who is the fulfillment of The Heavenly Scroll.
It is in this context of history of two sacrifices that we understand the prophets such as Isaiah condemning the practice of “eating swine flesh” as a sacrifice. If you “eat” or “put your faith in, believe, accept as true” the false sacrifice illustrated by Easter (the Ishtar Pig) Yahuah will utterly destroy you as that is The Way of the Gentiles and the blood of a Pig on the Altar desecrates Yahuah’s Altar, destroys the Temple (your body), and does not cover sin. This is called “The Abominable Sacrifice that Destroys the Body Temple” or for short The Abomination of Desolation. See my book The Antichrist Revealed! This is why Antiochus sacrificed a pig on the Altar committing The Abomination of Desolation… he was a sun worshipper and that was the sacrifice of the Gentiles.
The Meaning of Isaiah 66
Now getting back to “eating”. Yahuah established that we are to “eat” the sacrifices on Passover and The Day of Atonement. It is a shadow or illustration that in The Yahushaic Covenant we are to “eat the flesh and blood” of the Messiah, who is The Lamb of Yahuah. We are to metaphorically “eat his flesh and drink his blood” or rather “put our faith in, accept as true” that Yahusha is the fulfillment of the Passover Lamb and his blood covers our sin.
The Gentiles ate their sacrifice too… for the same reason.
So, the prophets were condemning The Way of the Gentiles when they spoke of eating the WRONG THINGS as SACRIFICES. Instead of Lamb and Dove, they would sacrifice Pigs and Rats in keeping with the religion of Mystery Babylon!
Isaiah 66:17 …16 For Yahuah will execute judgment by fire And by His sword on all flesh, And those slain by Yahuah will be many. 17" Those who sanctify and purify themselves (by offering the WRONG sacrifices of Pigs and Rats) to go to the gardens, Following one in the center (of the corrupted Zodiac), Who eat swine's flesh (as a sacrifice to Tammuz called Ishtar Day), detestable things and mice (instead of clean things like Lambs and Doves as Yahuah commanded to be used as sacrificial animals), Will come to an end altogether," declares Yahuah (because those are the wrong sacrificial animals and there is no forgiveness of sin in those sacrifices). 18"For I know their works (as they offer up unclean sacrifices to a Holy Elohim) and their thoughts (their INTENT is to worship the false Messiah, the Earthly Pig); the time is coming to gather all nations and tongues. And they shall come and see My glory.…
Notice in Isaiah above, which is used to condemn all who eat bacon with their eggs, that he is not talking about “eating pork” in general or the Dietary Laws of good health, he is condemning those who eat it as a sacrifice to “sanctify and purify” themselves! He is condemning the FALSE SACRIFICE of the Gentiles (the Way of the Gentiles) and all those who put their faith in the Ishtar Pig to “sanctify and purify” themselves. This has absolutely NOTHING to do with the Dietary Laws, we are speaking in parables and metaphor of the true vs false Messiah and true vs false sacrifice. The False Sacrifice of Babylon (all pagan religions) is EATING SWINE FLESH on Isthar Day as a sacrifice to purify and sanctify themselves. The True Sacrifice of Yahuah is EATING LAMB on Passover to sanctify and purify. It is within THAT context that “eating swine flesh” costs you your eternal life. NOT having bacon bits on your salad.
Epitomy of Hypocrisy
It is the epitomy of hypocrisy to keep the Dietary Laws “by the letter” as if that is where true righteousness is found. While denying the “intent’ of those same instructions by eating all kinds of “junk” and justify that because it isn’t listed in the Dietary Law. Then set yourself up as other’s judge and a “judge over the Law” by condemning others for their diet. This judgmental Spirit has plagued the body of believers all the way back 2000 years ago. We call these self-righteous hypocrites “Pharisees”:
James 4 10 Humble yourselves before Yahuah (knowing you too have broken His Dietary Laws in your lifetime), and He will exalt you (forgive you for YOUR bad eating in the past). 11 Brothers, do not slander one another (by judging others by the letter condemning others for their bad eating). Anyone who speaks against his brother or judges him (by the Letter of the Law) speaks against the (Intent of the) Law and judges it. And if you judge the Law, you are not a practitioner of the Law, but a judge of it (because no one has the authority to judge another's servant by the Law). 12 There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?
Romans 14 3 The one who eats everything must not belittle the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does (because they are instructions for good health), for Yahuah has accepted him (because they have NO bearing on Eternal Life just on good health). 4 Who are you to judge someone else’s servant (by the Dietary Laws)? To his own master he stands or falls (by the Blood of the Lamb NOT religiously following the Dietary Laws by the letter). And he will stand, for Yahuah is able to make him stand (forgiving our transgressions of the Dietary Instructions, there is NO condemnation).
This is exactly what Yahusha condemned in the Pharisees. A religious judgmental Spirit. It is paramount to saying “hey everybody, look at how Holy I am… I keep The Torah, see how perfect I am in obeying the Dietary Laws!” Just like the Pharisees praying out loud, over giving their alms and making it publicly known, or walking out looking all pathetic so everyone knew they were fasting, and so forth.
WALK THE WALK, get in the gym, eat right all the way around as THAT is what the Dietary Laws are telling us. And KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT in judgment of others for “their diet”. Hypocrites!
Matthew 23:33 33 (Yahusha said to the judgmental, self-righteous hypocritical Pharisees) You serpents, you brood of vipers, how are you to escape being sentenced to hell (by the Letter of the Law for judging others by it)? Matthew 7 1Do not judge, or you will be judged. 2 For with the same judgment you pronounce, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3 Why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but fail to notice the beam in your own eye?…
Liberty! You do not have the autority to judge on this issue!
What I want to accomplish here, is that the verses condemning all those who “eat swine flesh” has nothing to do with the Levitical Law on how to eat healthy. I am NOT saying the Instruction on good eating in Leviticus no longer apply. I am saying they do not apply to Isaiah 66 and have nothing to do with “utterly perishing for eating swine flesh”. We associate the two in error, bearing false witness of Isaiah who was not talking about the dietary laws, but rather The Way of the Gentiles sacrificing pigs and mice in honor of Tammuz/Jesus on Ishtar/Easter. By not understanding the context of Isaiah, we bear false witness of the Scriptures and use that false witness to then self-righteously condemn others for their diet.
We are out of step with The Yahushaic Covenant which is NOT based on ritualistic observance of The Law by the letter, that is “immaturity and milk”.
Righteousness is not “hey look how well I keep the dietary laws compared to you… YOU SINNER”
that is the issue here most of all. Righteousness is based on “eating the Lamb” on Passover not “eating a pig on Ishtar/Easter” and it is based on the INTENT of the heart not the letter of the Law. That is “New Covenant 101” and we have fallen out of covenant by judging “another’s servant” when we do not have that authority because of a little thing called… “Liberty”.
Liberty is Yahuah’s privilege to extend to each person grace and liberty in light of the letter in the process of individual training in Righteousness (sanctification) based on that person’s current state of maturity and circumstance. Since “we” are not involved in that personal relationship, we are then condemned by Yahuah if we intervene as if “we are their judge” by denying Him His privilege to train each person individually.
James 4 10 Humble yourselves before Yahuah (knowing you too have broken His Dietary Laws in your lifetime), and He will exalt you (forgive you for YOUR bad eating in the past). 11 Brothers, do not slander one another (by judging others by the letter condemning others for their bad eating). Anyone who speaks against his brother or judges him (by the Letter of the Law) speaks against the (Intent of the) Law and judges it. And if you judge the Law, you are not a practitioner of the Law, but a judge OVER it (because no one has the authority to judge another's servant by the Law they do not know the other's INTENT or where they are in their relationship with Yahuah and Liberty). 12 There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and destroy (that is Yahuah NOT you). But who are you to judge your neighbor (they are not in covenant with YOU)? Romans 14 3 The one who eats everything must not belittle the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does (because they are instructions for good health), for Yahuah has accepted him (because they have NO bearing on Eternal Life just on good health and Yahuah grants LIBERTY). 4 Who are you to judge someone else’s servant (by the Dietary Laws)? To his own master he stands or falls (by the Blood of the Lamb NOT religiously following the Dietary Laws by the letter). And he will stand, for Yahuah is able to make him stand (forgiving our transgressions of the Dietary Instructions and grant us Liberty as we grow in obedience and maturity) ----- Matthew 23:33 ----- 33 (Yahusha said to the judgmental, self-righteous hypocritical Pharisees) You serpents, you brood of vipers, how are you to escape being sentenced to hell (by the Letter of the Law for judging others by it)? Matthew 7 1Do not judge, or you will be judged. 2 For with the same judgment you pronounce, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3 Why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but fail to notice the beam in your own eye?…
Most people have no idea about the concept of Liberty. It has been abused by Christians to “do away with the law” when that is not at all what Liberty is. It is Yahuah’s right to extend to each of us a measure of understanding as we progress in sanctification so that we do not stand “condemned” in the process… like these self-righteous hypocrites would have us believe. Everyone has current “sin” in their lives and past sins… outside of Liberty there would be no growth and no training in Righteousness (which is what The Law is, it is NOT Righteousness in itself…)
I explain all of this in my book The Law and The Pauline Doctrine.
It is because each of us are in a personal relationship with a LOVING (not condemning) Father and have an individual level of Liberty extended to us personally, that NO ONE ELSE has the right/authority or position so “Judge another’s servant” because that “other” is Yahuah and HE will make us stand at all times through Liberty.
I want to keep this message on point. And that point is that … the dietary laws are no the point! Isaiah is not talking about that. He is condemning The Way of the Gentiles which was established all the way back in Babylon which is a FALSE sacrifice of pigs and mice instead or clean animal sacrifices of Lamb and Doves to “sanctify and purify” ourselves.
If you keep Easter over Passover and put your faith in The Beast/Pig of the Earth known as Jesus, you are “eating swine flesh” and that is the wrong sacrifice for sin and desecrates Yahuah’s altar (your heart) thereby destroying His Temple (your body) in the lake of fire…
The 24-Hour Day… Darkness to Light Parallel
by Rav Sha’ul
Romans 13 11 The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 12 The night is nearly over; the daytime is almost here (darkness to light metaphor of a 24-hour day). So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.
Everything in this physical realm is a “shadow” of a greater Spiritual Truth. I have searched high and low looking for a Spiritual Truth that identifies with a day beginning in the light. I find none… not one. Every time we attempt to employ “human logic” to the Scriptures which are Spiritually Appraised:
1 Corinthians 2:14 The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of Yahuah but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.
We get tripped up and violate His Spiritual Principles. All I care about is Yahuah’s Spiritual Truths! What is He trying to convey to me in His Physical Creation? The day begins in darkness and comes into the light. This was the physical to Spiritual parallel set in the Creation account. “In the beginning, DARKNESS covered the Earth, THEN Yahuah said “let there be light”… then came the morning (after the darkness) and then there was daylight and then came the evening (as the sun set) and that was day 1… 2… 3… 4….5 … and 6.
The “day” (not to be confused with “daytime”) is a very important parallel that is confirmed over and over. As “time” passes, Yahuah has built in a witness of His Plan of Salvation. We see Yahusha’s life written in the stars over the course of a year. We see the celebration of the coming Kingdom reign every 7 days … The Sabbath. The 24-hour day is also a vital shadow or rehearsal each and every day. The question is, what is the “24-hour Day” actually rehearsing. Once we define that rehearsal, our question is then answered very clearly. The day begins when the sun goes down! Just exactly like it is described in the Creation Account.
The Witness of Scripture
Let us look at the confirming witness of Yahuah’s Word as Scripture always defines Scripture. What does Scripture say? Light to darkness or darkness to light?
The Scriptures revealed that we are born in darkness (the womb) and we come to the light literally at our beginning! Then from there, we are in total Spiritual Darkness and must progress through a course of a lifetime “into the Light”!
Isaiah 9:2 The people who walk in darkness Will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, The light will shine on them.... Darkness to Light
Luke 1:79 TO SHINE UPON THOSE WHO SIT IN DARKNESS AND THE SHADOW OF DEATH, To guide our feet into the way of peace (as the Light of the World... Darkness to Light)."
Matthew 4:16 "THE PEOPLE WHO WERE SITTING IN DARKNESS SAW A GREAT LIGHT, AND THOSE WHO WERE SITTING IN THE LAND AND SHADOW OF DEATH, UPON THEM A LIGHT DAWNED." .... Darkness to Light
John 1:5 The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. .... Darkness to Light
2 Corinthians 4:6 For Yahuah, who said, "Light shall shine out of darkness," is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of Yahuah in the face of Yahusha. .... Darkness to Light
1 Peter 2:9 But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR God's OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; .... Darkness to Light
Ephesians 5:8 for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in Yahuah; walk as children of Light (coming out of the darkness.... Darkness to Light)
John 8:12 Then Yahusha again spoke to them, saying, "I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will no longer walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life." .... Darkness to Light
Acts 26:18 to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan (darkness) to (the dominion of) Yahuah (light), that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.' .... Darkness to Light
Matthew 10:27 "What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops. .... Darkness to Light
Mark 4:22 "For nothing is hidden (in the darkness), except to be revealed (in the light); nor has anything been secret (kept in the dark), but that it would come to light. .... Darkness to Light
Romans 13 11 The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 12 The night is nearly over; the daytime is almost here (darkness to light metaphor of a 24-hour day). So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.... Darkness to Light
and on and on and on…
Now let us examine the physical Creation’s witness.
The Annual Night Precedes the Annual Day
Wintertime in the annual cycle is considered “darkness” as everything dies for the lack of sunlight. Spring/Summer is the “daytime” and there is a perfect 7 month “annual day” each year AFTER we come out of darkness (of winter). Then it is “in the light” that we celebrate the Plan of Salvation via Yahuah’s Holy Days.
This Annual day at the North Pole begins AFTER a 5-month span of darkness at the South Pole called the Annual Night. At the North Pole, this is reflected as they have a 7-month day with no night.
What Does The Heavenly Scroll Proclaim?
What is reflected in The Heavenly Scroll? Yahusha was born when the Sun is in Virgo… i.e. the Feast of Tabernacles in the fall (as darkness falls). And then his life story progresses through the 12 months as he overcomes the darkness (defeats the Dragon) and brings light to the world! The Plan of Salvation culminates in when the Sun is in LEO in summer time (August-September) which is broad daylight!
We see that The Heavenly Scroll is a “Divine Day” of Yahusha. This is what Abraham saw:
John 8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my DAY (when he witnessed The Heavenly Scroll); he saw it and was glad.
Sha’ul went on to tell the Galatians they are without excuse for denying Yahusha is the Messiah, because he was “portrayed as crucified before their very eyes”… in the stars!
Galatians 3 You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you (obviously they were denying the Prophets spoke of Yahusha)? Before your very eyes (in the stars Psalm 19) Yahusha the Messiah was clearly portrayed as crucified …
What did Sha’ul mean by that? He pointed to Abraham and how “Scripture” or The Heavenly Scroll, per Genesis 15:5, foresaw in advance that Yahuah would justify the Gentiles as that was laid out in the Gospel in the stars shown to Abram… and pointed them to Genesis 15:5!
Galatians 3 7 Understand then (Yahusha's "day" foretold in the stars), that those who have faith are children of Abraham. 8 Scripture (the word written in the heavens Psalm 199:89) foresaw that Yahuah would justify the Gentiles by faith, and Yahuah announced the gospel in advance to Abraham (via The Heavenly Scroll Genesis 15:5; saying): “All nations will be blessed through you.”
Sha’ul asks of humanity below “did they not hear? Of course they did, he exclaims!” Then Sha’ul quotes David in Psalms that declares the heavens are pouring forth speech day after day to all mankind then David describes the Zodiac in great detail.
‘Hearing’ and ‘voice’ are used anthropomorphically as physical to spiritual parallels by Sha’ul as he clearly teaches that the source of “faith” comes from the message proclaimed in the stars at creation, which Yahusha said was his “day” which runs from the FALL (of darkness of winter to the Annual 7-month day).
What about the life of the Messiah?
Yahusha had to go from darkness to light at birth coming out of the darkness of the womb. Contrary to popular blasphemy, Yahusha was not Yahuah, he did not even know Yahuah! Yahusha too had to go from Spiritual Darkness (opposed to Yahuah) as he was ‘born according to the flesh’ as are ALL humans, and progressed and grew in knowledge and Spirit into the Light of our Father. The idiom “in the flesh” means by definition outside of ANY Divine Influence or “seed” prone to sin and opposed to Yahuah!
Flesh - g4561 ‘sarki’ - Thayer: 2a) the body of a man 2b) used of natural or physical origin, generation or relationship 2b1) born of natural generation 4) the flesh, denotes mere human nature, the earthly nature of man apart from divine influence, and therefore prone to sin and opposed to God.
So, Yahusha too was born into Spiritual Darkness i.e. the Flesh and progressed into the light. This is confirmed throughout Scripture. Yahusha showed us The Way we all must walk, he is not the exception to the rules, he IS the “rules”.
Luke 2:40, 52 40 And the child (Yahusha) grew (out of darkness) and became strong in spirit (the Light), (and became) filled with wisdom (Light); and the grace (favor) of Yahuah was upon Him. ... 52 And Yahusha increased in wisdom and (increased in) stature, and (increased) in favor with Yahuah and men (as he progressed out of the darnkess and into the Light of the Truth).
Hebrews 5:8-9 8 though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience (to Yahuah) by the things which He suffered (discipline as Yahuah brought His son from darkness to light). 9 And having been perfected (in the light), He became (after coming out of the darkness) the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him (and walk that same path called The Way)
Yahusha then had to endure the “darkness” of death… death is likened unto total darkness:
2 Peter 2:17 "These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the black darkness is reserved for ever."
Before he was risen into the “light” by the blinding light of the Resurrection:
Romans 1 …2 concerning Yahusha, which Yahuah promised beforehand through His prophets in the holy Scriptures (both The Heavenly and Earthly Scrolls, he did not pre-exist), 3 concerning His Son, who was born of a descendant of David (through both parents) according to the flesh (into darkness), 4 who was declared (Divine) the Son of Yahuah with power (Light) by the resurrection from the dead (of darkness), according to the Spirit of holiness (Yahuah’s Spiritual Seed), Yahusha the Messiah, …
This teaching that the Sabbath begins at sunrise is a classic example of a false teaching. Born from unspiritual minds, literal interpretations, human logic, void of the Spiritual meaning of things.
These “teachers” who want to twist the Sabbath and the order of the 24-hour day (which is a physical to Spiritual metaphor of the process we follow to come to the knowledge of the Truth or light) have no Spiritual Wisdom. They are twisting the meaning of a 24-hour day called a “day” and the short version of “daytime” or the 12 hour period of light also called “day”! Then sound biting the scriptures, twisting the clear wording of the Creation Account, and have no idea of the Spiritual Truths contained in the daily rehearsal of The Way (going from darkness to light). They ignore the Scriptures, The Heavenly Scroll, the Feast Cycle, and the life of the Messiah in the process.
It is the same now… we still shorten the phrase “daytime” to just “day”! Every “teacher” today (who are nothing more than Spiritual Children themselves) are looking to unlock some “great secret”… nothing to see here. We actually got this one right. We always defy Yahuah’s Plan of Salvation by attempting a literal interpretation of Scripture….
Darkness always comes before light….
One thing to “ponder”… darkness is the absence of light. You can have darkness without light, darkness is universal and the state of existence outside of light. Light, however, requires a SOURCE. It penetrates darkness and cannot exist outside of it.
Put that in plain English… you must have darkness for their to be a “day”… Light has no meaning outside of shining in the pre-existing darkness!
Excerpt from The Nazarene by Rav Sha’ul
In this book, I have presented the history and beliefs of the true Nazarenes. Men so passionate about the Truth that they grew in number surpassing all other political groups (sects) in Jerusalem. Their tireless efforts to confront the establishment cost many of them their lives! These soldiers were few but changed the course of history.
The Nazarenes were so effective in their teachings they became a serious threat to the Pharisees, Sadducees, High Priests, Kings, and eventually The Roman Empire itself. They were driven from the forefront of history by those who favored tradition and religion over the Truth, A curse placed over them; spoken 3 times/day in every synagogue, they were thrown out of Christian gatherings, and hunted down until they eventually went underground and disappeared from the historical record.
From that point until now, the Spirit of the False Messiah took over creating a false image of the true Messiah, a false mark, a false seal, a false sign, a false religion, a false priesthood, and a false sacrifice. The Scriptures were altered by pagan Greeks and Hellenized to the degree they now say the exact opposite of what Yahuah intended. Yahuah was remade into ‘the image of a man who died’ as we force Yahuah to be conformed to our own human image (as if He were Yahusha) instead of we conforming to His Divine Image. We deny Yahuah’s immortality and invisible nature claiming He came to Earth as a man and died. This is blasphemy and came about after the Nazarenes were driven from the world stage. But we have maintained the faith albeit in small groups passing down this true faith and the “ancient paths” through mentorship and personal discipleship as is The Way of the Nazarene.
All of this is clearly prophesied in Scripture as the “Beastly System” of religion, human tradition, and politics was given time to prosper. At this late hour, every aspect of our faith has been polluted by this False Spirit of Incarnation. This blasphemous Spirit of Dagon (the Dragon) has permeated all levels of religious thought, has been written into the Scriptures by pagan scribes, and has been established as the most fundamental doctrine of “the faith” by the false religion known as Christianity! At this late hour, as we transition from the Age of Pisces to Aquarius, every teacher and every teaching is filled with this false Spirit. The Bibles we read are translated within the confines of incarnation and out of context of The Plan of Salvation through a mediating High Priest. Our Bible’s literally preach this false Spirit and present a false image of the Messiah. Our understanding of our Creator and our Messiah is clouded by this False Spirit.
All is not lost! Yahuah also promised that at this time, just before the climax of this age-old battle for the hearts and minds of humanity and the right to rule Creation, He would raise up men of Wisdom and Understanding whom He would train personally and they would then instruct many. The Nazarenes would return and the Truth would once again be proclaimed among all nations and the Chosen would be called from among all the Earth… but they would be a Chosen Few very small in number relative to the general population of Earth. The vast majority of people would fall for this false Spirit of Incarnation.
Once again, Nazarenes would explode on the scene at the end and confront this false Spirit of religion, human tradition, and Babylonian beliefs, They would, like the first century Nazarenes, reject incarnation and seek the ancient Enochian Path. They would restore the proper calendar, teach the true Plan of Salvation written in The Heavenly Scroll, and they would restore the Scriptures to the proper context and Hebraic intent. Just like John, Yahusha, James, and Sha’ul; they would confront these modern-day Pharisees and teach the intent of the Law and free His people from these mindless rituals “by the letter”.
If you are reading this book, then you have met a Nazarene and YOU are most probably being called out by our Father to “fight the good fight” as a true follower of The Way. You too are being trained as a Nazarene to join in this battle for Creation.
I want to end this book with some guidance. If you are being called to stand with me and fight incarnation, restore The Heavenly Scroll, teach the true Plan of Salvation, and proclaim the REAL Messiah of Israel, then this closing chapter is for you. The call went out over my life by a Father looking for faithful men over 30 years ago, to which I answered…
“Here am I Father… send me.”
I am going to share what He has taught me as I have endured His training and spent many years in the “fire” or Kiln of Yahuah being tried, tested, and refined for a day such as this! He is looking for those of you who will be willing to literally give you your life and die for Him just like the prophets, just like John, Yahusha, Steven, James, Sha’ul and many more Nazarenes in the first 300 years who fought this battle both Spiritually and physically. “Death”, today, may only be in the form of losing everything you love and your character being assassinated. Even that is a painful experience and the call as a Sealed Soldier will cost you and is not for the faint of heart.
This special “seal” requires that you be properly trained and that is what is missing today. Everyone wants to go from knowing nothing at all and lost in pagan beliefs and practices to being an “anointed teachers” overnight! We have lost the vital concept of discipleship! We deny our teachers, even attack them openly and disrespect His Established Authority. There is no respect for our Elders in the faith as we all rebel against those who step forward to offer to serve as a mentor. Yahuah anoints whom He chooses and no one else! These Anointed Teachers are precious few among us and are to be sought out with everything we have. We are commanded to spare no expense to find The Truth and never sell out for this lie of Incarnation. Qualified teachers, however, can be TRAINED (by those anointed by Yahuah) and obtain one of the highest callings… The Seal of a Soldier.
The Battle of the Ages
The sons of Yahuah have passed down the proper meaning of the Zodiac from Seth to Enoch to Noah to Abraham to Daniel to Yahusha who fulfilled (in the process of fulfilling) its message. The pagans have passed down the twisted version of the Zodiac, which idolizes the Sun, worships incarnated demi-gods, and the signs of the Zodiac.
This is “The Battle of the Ages” in scripture that rages even today, the battle for the message contained in the Zodiac; yes, the Battle for Creation…
- Jerusalem vs. Rome/Babylon
- Yahuah vs. Sol Invictus/Ba’al
- The Shema vs. The Cross/The Trinity
- Yahusha vs. Jesus/Tammuz
- The Sabbath vs. Dias Solis/Sunday
- The Passover Lamb vs. Easter/The Ishtar Pig
- The Holy Days vs. Holidays
- The Law vs. Lawlessness
- The Spirit of Truth vs. The Spirit of Error
- The Spirit of Yahuah vs. the Spirit of the False Messiah/Incarnation
- The Nazarene vs. Christianity
- The Ruling Zadok High Priest vs. God the Son
Sealed Soldiers of Yahuah
As I have explained in this book, John the Baptist was given The Way by revelation who mentored Yahusha who was to fulfill it by walking it. Yaakov (James the Just) took over as opposition High Priest to lead The Nazarenes. Rav Sha’ul the Apostle was then risen up as a master of the Torah and called out of the ranks of the Pharisees to lead the Nazarenes. These men were the first true Sealed Soldiers of The Faith. Sha’ul understood the Plan of Salvation and how the Messiah fulfilled it, taught The Heavenly Scroll as the foundation of it, and tirelessly confronted the Pharisees in Jerusalem and the pagans in Rome, Galatia, Corinth, and towns across the region. He setup and established groups of ecclesia, trained them, and was a master teacher. His leadership guided The Nazarenes for another 500 years before Rome took over the faith and twisted the Scriptures.
I want to impart to all who read my books and teachings the same knowledge and I implore you to study it and become apt to teach others. That is the first instruction of what a Sealed Servant is to do. So, let us seek Sha’ul’s counsel in this endeavor and define this Seal of a Soldier and what is required of those who would be “the tip of the spear”.
The Seal Defined
Sha’ul lays out the criteria to become a “soldier for the King” in his letter to Timothy his disciple. We see Sha’ul stress that in order to reign with the Messiah we must suffer with the Messiah and be willing to sacrifice this life, in order to serve our coming King. We are to be strangers in a foreign land put here for a Divine purpose. Those who realize this crucial fact, act in faith on this truth, and strive to prove themselves to Yahuah can attain this special “seal”. A seal that comes with the greatest promises and rewards while costing us the most in our individual lives. No pain… no gain. It is this seal that provides divine protection throughout the Ages until our time here is done. We are Nazarenes… 21st Century Nazarenes!
2 Timothy 2 Discipleship and Mentors is the Nazarene Way 1 You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in covenant with Yahusha the Messiah (know and understand your roles and responsibilities in The Yahushaic Covenant), 2 And the things that you (a disciple) have heard from me (your mentor) among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men (to whom you will mentor) who will be able to teach others also (and such is how the Faith is passed down, through discipleship), 3 You therefore must (as a Sealed Soldier) endure hardship as a good soldier of our King Yahusha (this is war and you are going to get wounded in this battle), 4 No Sealed Soldier of Yahuah engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life (stay out of human politics of this world, focus on The Kingdom), that he may please Him (Yahuah) who enlisted him as a soldier, 5 And just as anyone who competes in athletics, we are not crowned unless we compete in this battle according to the rules (by keeping The Law those are the ‘rules/instructions’), 6 The hardworking farmer must be first to partake of the crops (other Nazarenes brought into the faith are to bear the financial burdens of those who fight at this level), 7 Consider what I say, and may Yahuah give you understanding in all things (pray for Wisdom, Knowledge, and Understanding in all things… DAILY). The Firstborn of the Dead NOT 'God in the Flesh' 8 Remember that Yahusha the Messiah, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead according to my gospel, 9 for which I suffer trouble as an evildoer, even to the point of chains; but the Word of Yahuah is not chained, 10 Therefore I endure all things (becoming all things to all men to win as many as possible) for the sake of the Chosen Few, that they also may obtain the salvation which is found in covenant with Yahusha the Messiah with eternal glory (promised in The Heavenly Scroll in the Age to come). Always keep this in mind 11 This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, We shall also live with Him. 12 If we endure, We shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us. 13 If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself. Trained vs. Untrained Soldiers 14 Remind them of these things, charging them before Yahuah not to strive about words to no profit, to the ruin of the hearers (teaching the Scriptures in out of context sound bites), 15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to Yahuah, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (line upon line; precept upon precept in CONTEXT). 16 But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness (do not argue over The Law, it is personally appraised in context of a personal relationship), … 19 Nevertheless the solid foundation of Yahuah (those chosen as Soldiers) stands, having this seal (the Seal of a Soldier): “Yahuah knows those who are His (appointed Soldiers),” and, “Let everyone (chosen as a Sealed Soldier) who proclaims The Yahushaic Covenant depart from iniquity (and obey The Intent of His Law).” Different positions, both good and bad at play 20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold (Sealed Soldiers) and silver (support positions of exhortation, prayer warriors, those that finance the efforts of the Soldiers, etc.), but also of wood and clay (false ‘brothers’ filled with The Spirit of the False Messiah), some (the Gold and Silver) for honor and some (the wood and clay) for dishonor, 21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter (the Spirit of the False Messiah), he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work (as a Sealed Soldier or in support of them), 22 Flee also youthful lusts (Sealed Soldiers are mature both in age and Spirit, trained over a course of a lifetime); but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on Yahuah out of a pure (circumcised) heart (for the intent of His Law), 23 But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes (over the letter of the Law), knowing that they generate strife (as pride swells up over who is more Righteous and knows more, others self ritheousnly judge the body), 24 And a Soldier of Yahuah must not quarrel (striving to win an argument and to be ‘right’) but be gentle to all (in love), able to teach, patient (be Righteous not ‘right’), 25 in humility correcting those who are in opposition (to Yahuah not us), hoping that Yahuah will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth (we fight FOR them not AGAINST them), 26 and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will. Know Your Enemy – The Soldiers of The Spirit of the False Messiah 2 Timothy 3 1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men (who will oppose us) will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving (in their judgments), slanderers (of others who they disagree with), without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Yahuah, 5 having a form of godliness (the SAY they are believers even teachers) but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible weak minded loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth (because they cannot be taught, and deny His True Anointed who could instruct them)… Stay above the mud slinging 10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, 11 persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra—what persecutions I endured. And out of them all Yahuah delivered me, 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in covenant with Yahusha the Messiah will suffer persecution (and they will FALL Daniel 11:33-34), 13 But evil men and impostors (FALSE TEACHERS filled with The Spirit of the False Messiah/Incarnation will attack the Anointed and discredit them because the fell) will grow worse and worse (in their self-righteous attacks), deceiving (bearing false witness) and being deceived (by false witnesses), 14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in covenant with Yahusha the Messiah. 16 All Scripture (Heavenly Scroll, Torah, Prophets, words of Yahusha) is given by inspiration of Yahuah, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of Yahuah may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work (there was no such thing as The New Testament when this was written!). Know the Truth, do not mislead others in your ignorance 2 Timothy 4 1 I charge you therefore before the Father Yahuah and also before the King Yahusha the Messiah, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: 2 Preach the (true) word! Be ready (to do battle) in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching, 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires (to worship demi-gods and men who died Romans 1 and will fall for sound bite doctrine), because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers (to tickle their fancies and tell them what they want to hear not what the NEED to hear); 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth (because it is not what they have been taught in the past), and be turned aside to (the same old) fables (and lies passed down from generation to generation based on incarnation), 5 But you be watchful in all things (to defend against The Spirit of the False Messiah), endure afflictions (as they are training you in Righteousness), do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry (life calling in The Kingdom).
Qualification to attain the “Seal of a Soldier”
Here Sha’ul lays out the qualifications of this seal as follows:
Requirements of a Good Soldier/Warrior to win the Crown of Righteousness
- Discipleship and Mentorship is critical! A Nazarene is not born, they are TRAINED! Commit yourself to faithful men, given the knowledge to train you. (vs. 2)
- Strong in the grace. (vs. 1)
- Unshakable endurance. (vs. 3)
- Untangled from the trappings of society. (vs. 4) The Kingdom is our message, our focus. Not politics!
- Must fight according to the rules of war. (vs. 5) this means know the INTENT of The Law.
- Have a keen understanding of all things (spiritual, historical, political) (vs. 7)
- Have a firm foundation in the resurrection of the dead (not the assumption of the living) (vs. 8)
- Be righteous with no sin… depart from iniquity (vs. 19) which is breaking The Law.
Description of the War the Sealed Servants/Warriors fight
- We battle on behalf of the Chosen Few to save them from the Spirit of the False Messiah and ensure their salvation (vs. 10)
- We must be prepared to suffer and die for our King in order to be proven worthy to reign with the King. (vs. 11-12)

A Soldier’s Armor
To survive the unimaginable tribulation a Sealed Soldier will encounter during the course of their life, a solid foundation is required as well as a healthy set of Yahuah’s Armor as defined in
Ephesians 6:10-18 10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in Yahauh, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of Yahauh, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of Yahauh, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of Yahuah: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.

A Soldier’s Shield
from the book The Kingdom by Rav Sha’ul
Faith in Yahuah is our shield. That faith is found in the foremost command of all: “Hear O Israel, Yahuah your Elohim is ONE Elohim and there is no other”. It is the denial of incarnation, and understanding that Yahuah is one not 3 in one, or 2 in one, or a “Godhead”. It is called The Shema and those with this Seal have a protective “shield” placed over their minds.
We see that Yahuah’s Law and specifically the declaration and knowledge that Yahuah is ONE Elohim (not a trinity or bi-entity) and there is no other Elohim is said to be as frontals or a protective shield on our foreheads:
Deuteronomy 6:8 “they (His Law) shall be as frontals (or spiritual seal) on your forehead (Spiritual Mind).
The Frontal Bone is literally the protective shield in the cranium (physical metaphor) that protects the Frontal Lobe of the brain:
This physical to spiritual parallel employed by Yahuah in Deuteronomy can only now be understood in the context it was meant. Science has defined the purpose of the Frontal Lobe of the human brain and we can see why that lobe MUST be sealed by Yahuah.
The Frontal Lobe has been identified and described as follows, according to Dr. Donald Stuss of the Rotman Research Institute:
The frontal lobe is a critical center and it controls the "essence" of our humanity. The frontal lobes, which are also called the cerebral cortex, are the seat of emotions and judgments related to sympathy, which is the ability to feel sorrow for someone else's suffering, and empathy, which is the ability to understand another's feelings and problems. They are also the seat of understanding humor, including subtle witticisms and word plays. The frontal lobe also recognizes sarcasm and irony. And they are where recognition of deception occurs guiding our judgment between right and wrong. The cerebral cortex, or frontal lobes, is indeed the seat of our essence and nature.
We need to always keep in the foremost of our mind that Yahuah’s purpose is to govern the Universe with His sons. The Frontal Lobe is critical in all aspects of judgment, empathy, knowing right from wrong. Yahuah literally provides a “protective shield” called the Seal of Yahuah which protects that very part of our mind that enables us to have empathy toward others, recognize deceptive philosophies, and determines our essence and nature.
In effect those who have this seal have in the foremost of their mind the truth that Yahuah is ONE Elohim and that His Law defines what is right and wrong and that it is love (empathy) for others that are the foundation of that Law. This is exactly what was declared by Yahusha when asked.
Yahusha demonstrated this SEAL and declared it THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT of all as he quoted Deut 6:
Mark 28-34 28 One of the teachers of the law (Torah) came and heard them debating. Noticing that Yahusha had given them a good answer, he asked him, "Of all the commandments, which is the most important?" 29 "The most important one," answered Yahusha (then he quoted the Shema in Deut. 6), "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, Yahuah our Elohim, Yahuah is one. 30 Love Yahuah your Elohim with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' 31 The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these."
We see Yahusha confirm that the Seal of Yahuah is the Greatest Commandment of all.
A Soldier’s Motto
Romans 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of the Messiah? - Shall tribulation? - Distress? - Persecution? - Famine? - Nakedness? - Peril? - Sword? As it is written, for thy sake we are KILLED ALL DAY LONG; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter, Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us, For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the Love of Yahuah. Which is in Yahusha the Messiah our King!
Spoken by a true warrior, not fearing tribulation, and definitely not looking to be raptured from it! Instead ready and willing to stand against evil, the False Messiah, spiritual forces, and everything in between to battle his way through tribulation as a warrior for his King, THAT is what I’m talking about! No hope is found in the following motto to be raptured from our purpose here. But rather his hope is exactly where the Bible defines our hope… in the RESURRECTION of the dead. In other words, the Bible says be prepared to die, not prepared to be spared. But know that you have been purchased and your resurrection is sure… FEARING NOTHING!
The Battle Plan
Yahuah laid out His Debar (predestined plan) on the first day of Creation when He separated the “Light” from the fallen “Darkness”. That Plan was written into His Creation on Day 4 called The Heavenly Scroll. The Heavenly Scroll lays out the Truth and is the guiding “light” fulfilled in Yahusha the Messiah. It is our “Battle Plan”. This Battle is over Creation! It is the battle over who is the fulfillment of The Heavenly Scroll and who will reign over the Kingdom of Yahuah! It is a battle between The Spirit of Yahuah and The Spirit of the False Messiah.
This battle involves many fronts:
- Seeking out Yahuah’s Anointed and submitting to their unique understanding and instruction.
- Submitting to a Qualified Nazarene to be mentored in the faith. Then mentoring other disciples into the faith of a Nazarene.
- Restoring The Plan of Salvation through a Mediating High Priest not an “incarnated god-man”.
- Restoring Yahuah’s witness of Yahusha in The Heavenly Scroll.
- Fighting sound bite implied lies with sound doctrine.
- Establishing the truth of our faith in the Hebraic Mindset overcoming the effects of Hellenism, Greek philosophies, religion and human traditions.
- Re-interpreting the Scriptures in context of The Heavenly Scroll, the Torah and Prophets, and the proper meaning of the Hebrew words, idioms, and figures of Speech… keeping The Heavenly Scroll as the centerpiece of the faith.
- Seeking out, understanding, and teaching The Mystery Language
- Exposing the False Messiah, False Religion, False Mark, False Sign, False Seal, False Sacrifice, and False Teachers.
- Restoring The Holy Days from these mindless rituals to the celebration of The Heavenly Courtship, Engagement, Wedding Ceremony, and Wedding Banquet.
- Teaching and obeying the Intent of the Law not the “letter”, growing from children addicted to milk to mature servants able to digest the meat (intent).
- Properly instructing what it required in The Yahushaic Covenant.
- Retaking the faith of our forefathers from the clutches of religion, science, mythology, and restoring The Faith of The Nazarene.
- Proclaiming Yahusha as the fulfillment of The Heavenly Scroll, The Suffering Servant AND The Conquering King, The fulfillment of the promise to David (Melchi) and Zadok (Tsedek) not a false priesthood based on re-incarnation.
- Foremost of all… walking The Way (Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering) through The Narrow Gate of Passover into the Promised Land (the coming Kingdom).
I have been considering this opportunity not simply to earn money, but more importantly to spread the Truth found in my book series.
My reservations were that this looks pretty much exactly like a ponzi scheme with no real “product” or goal other than to make everyone rich. We have to avoid that perception and present a funding program that actually achieves the goals of The Sabbath Covenant which it to get these books in as many hands as possible.
What I would like to build is a very real world-wide grass roots distribution channel where the proceeds go directly back to those who serve His Kingdom purposes.
We need to shy away from that BMW screen or any presentation that comes across as a get rich quick scheme (although that is what it is, I realize that and have no problem with that as long as this effort spread the Gospel message in the process). I firmly believe if the books series and the active effort to spread this Truth is at the very heart of this effort, Yahuah’s blessing will be all over it!
To make this truly a “ministry” with a goal that does exactly that and distributes this book series, I have made “the product” the book series. I have maintained complete rights to all my books, and am not beholden to any publisher or distributor in any way. I can give them away, sell them, or create just such a ministry as this that serves as the “distributor”.
The electronic books (.pdf and Kindle) are 100% free for me so there is no cost at all involved in bringing these books into this program as “the product” upon which this funding system/ministry is founded… I will also make these books available in audio format and html so even those with just smart phones can have access.
Basically instead of just “gifts” passed around, what will be invested in is the book series itself and the right to distribute the books freely to others who they can bring in to their downline. It will work exactly like you have it, except for the $50 I will provide the full books series in .pdf and Kindle and grant full distribution rights to the electronic books to all those who remain active in the program.
So when they go to grow their ministry, they are not just trying to convince someone to “give to their cause” but rather invest in their own knowledge! Those who sign up all down the line will get the complete book series for the $50 investment AND the digital distribution rights to offer to others as we grow the Kingdom as a body with “a single mind/purpose” by distributing these books in electronic form to feed His Sheep and overcome the lack of Knowledge.
The “need” is Ignorance…
Hosea 4:6 "my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. "Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children."
This turns this from just a “get rich scheme” into an actual ministry with an actual product that has tremendous value to those who give $50! This will eliminate the reservation people are definitely going to have trying to “pitch the program” without a real product of value attached to it. Which is my reservation as well.
So basically, people will sign up just like you have it setup, and they will receive a link where they can download all 11 books for themselves. When they sign up their 4 people, they will have the rights to share that link with those 4, and so on down the line. This not only “looks” like a real ministry at that point, it IS a real ministry as the goal of this effort is not only to fund each individual but to distribute books that will change the lives of each and every person who comes into this program.
This will also protect me from any “attacks” on this ministry for promoting a get rich quick scam as it has a very real, very valuable product that does not fade away as the downline is built leaving 80% of the downline losing their investment. Because what they invested in… is the books and the right to distribute them to build their own ministry and spread the Truth. These books remain valuable over all time to all people. There is no chance this will “collapse” over time as all other ponzi schemes inevitably do… that is why they are illegal to begin with. Not because they don’t work, but because they ONLY work for the few at the top and destroy everyone down the line over time because there is no real viable product worth the investment.
This gives each person in this ministry access to the book series to study, and grow, and then to “cut and paste” and teach on their Facebook Pages. As they do, interest will grow (as you see it does) and then instead of links to the printed books at about $20/book, each “minister” can work with those they are mentoring and encourage them to enter this ministry and get the entire book series for themselves (to study, learn to teach, and then promote this funding effort themselves).
Instead of talking about this in terms of “gifts” we use “royalties”. So they are maitaining their distribution rights with the $50/month and earning royalties on thier first level. To open up the royalties of their second level… another $50/month and so forth.
Below is what I have come up with to introduce this funding/ministry to the people initially. This will be PM’d to only those I know I can truth at the beginning.
I have always believed that there was a way to fund the growth of The Kingdom that would benefit everyone involved not just “the Pastor” as is the case in the false religions, cults, or the “author” of a book, etc.
The Scriptural model of The Nazarenes is the goal. That is one of voluntary shared resources, where everyone works to benefit the group as the entire group serves the Father’s Will and Kingdom and all are cared for in the process. The same concept as the tithe which was to go into a storehouse for all of Israel’s needs. The existing systems of everyone giving to the “one” at the top who benefits disproportionately from the group is not Scriptural.
With that goal in mind, I have never really found any system of funding that would satisfy my requirements (Scriptural examples). About a month ago, brother Ger Zimmerman committed to finding a way to fund The Sabbath Covenant in a way that would benefit all those who serve not just the “leader”. He walked away from Facebook for the most part, and went into his “box” and emerged recently with just such a funding system! He presented it to me for my approval and it met every expectation… it is the perfect funding/growth program I always trusted Yahuah would provide to fund the growth of His Kingdom not just The Sabbath Covenant but all those who commit to this ministry.
It does involve actively serving the Kingdom, it is not a “get rich quick” scheme that relies on some bogus product that no one really wants or that is not worth the investment. This is His Kingdom, and $50 to see it advanced is dwarfed by the “product” which is Truth found in The Original Revelation Book Series. The market is world-wide and wide open and the product is well worth the initial investment!
This is akin to the “go fund me” methods, accept that it is “pier to pier” meaning there is no middle man, no group that gets 30% of the proceeds that are given to fund The Kingdom. There is no government intervention, it is a shared system of everyone giving to each other to grow the Kingdom of Yahuah by becoming the gound level grass roots distributor of The Original Revelation Series.
Every dime invested goes to those in the ministry who participate and the “product” is viable to all down the line for eternity. It is not a system that collapses in on itself over time costing the majority to lose their investment.
The “need”? Ignorance… and The Original Revelation Series is the solution.
Hosea 4:6 "my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. "Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children."
The solution is getting these books in the hands of His Chosen. The original investment is $50 which brings you into this ministry, provides you with the full book series (all 11 books in .pdf and Kindle) and grants you full distribution rights (as long as you stay involved in the ministry each month). Best of all, it is truly “investment free” as the original investment is only $50 and then if you simply do the minimum (reach out to others with the Truth and encourage them to serve in this ministry with you) and spread the Truth and grow the Kingdom that initial investment of $50 will be returned pretty much immediately. All future “gifts” to the ministry will be easily covered by just a fraction of the “gifts” other give to your personal ministry as the goal is to fund YOURSELF to serve the Kingdom, not just me, as we all serve as the publishing arm of this ministry to get these books out to the population at large.
The “foundation” of this funding program is The Original Revelation series, the active promotion of Knowledge to meet the need of “ignorance”, and it is based is in the trading of Bitcoins. A digital currency that is the fastest growing currency in the world! All it requires is a digital wallet (like PayPal) where you can give to the ministry and receive gifts to your ministry from others. You give to other’s ministries by passing your bitcoins directly into their Bitcoin digital wallet. Bitcoin is easily traded in all world currencies so you can withdraw your Bitcoins into your regular bank accounts with a click of a button just like PayPal. Your Bitcoin wallet is your very own bank account, no one has access to it or can touch it, not even the governments or central banks! It is truly “the money of the people for the people” and not subject to the unstable flux of government paper or failing economies. It is considered “the new gold” and is growing faster than gold. This funding system comes complete with a fully functional management software to manage your ministry and its growth.
As I stated, I am not going to divulge this funding system publicly and only to those I trust who are willing to join me in this ministry and actively work to see it succeed. I am only initially seeking 4 people! I will offer it to more once I get the first 4 ministers setup in this ministry properly.
To be considered to be a part of this ministry you must simply open a digital wallet. It is very easy and the money you put into it is your money. If you don’t like the opportunity and do not want to invest in it, simply transfer the money back to your bank account and close your wallet (or keep it open as Bitcoin is the fastest growing currency investment and is easily expected to sky rocket in the coming months/years, much like Gold).
If you see this for the opportunity it is for your own ministry and the overwhelming potential to fund the growth of the Kingdom, then you will sign up and make a $65 transfer from your digital bitcoin wallet (that will cover the $50 initial investment plus the fees to open the digital wallet) to become an active participant in this funding system and obtain the full set of books to distribute yourselves. Off you go with me and we will go from there together to bring this same opportunity to 4 people that YOU trust and know have the desire to serve Yahuah with their time, those you love to whom you want to share the message contained in The Original Revelation Book Series.
It is time we all cease laboring in the world system, support each other’s efforts, and all serve our Father with our lives. If you would like to get involved at this level with The Sabbath Covenant, simply PM me and I will provide the link to open your Bitcoin account and then we’ll take the next step from there.
Ger is ready to provide all the necessary training to get us all up and running ASAP.
From my book Creation Cries Out! The Mazzaroth pages 148-161
With that introduction to the Heavenly Scroll (the Zodiac), we are now prepared to examine the 12 signs of the Zodiac to see what story is told to all mankind in the heavens (H8064 – the visible place in the sky where the stars are located). As we now know, this mystery was revealed to King David. In Psalms 19, we see that as the sun and moon rises and sets daily, and night after night… knowledge concerning The Plan of Yahuah is proclaimed without voice or speech from one end of the Earth to the other to all mankind. Remember, Sha’ul told the Galatians that before their very eyes, the Messiah was “seen” as crucified in the stars. Sha’ul also proclaims in Romans Chapter 1 that mankind is without excuse, because the Plan of Salvation is evident in creation! We see then David define the Zodiac in detail as that message.
Psalm 19 1 The heavens (H8064, speaking of the Zodiac) are telling of the glory of Yahuah; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. 2 Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge. 3 There is no speech, nor are there words; Their (the stars and constellations) voice is not heard. 4 Their line (ecliptic, the path of the sun through them) has gone out through all the earth, And their utterances to the end of the world. In them (the constellations) Yahuah has placed a tent for the sun, 5 Which (the Sun) is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber (a metaphor of Yahusha who is the Bridegroom); It rejoices as a strong man to run his course (of a wedding). 6 Its (the Sun’s) rising is from one end of the heavens, And its circuit (through the constellations, Zodiac means ‘circuit) to the other end of them; And there is nothing hidden from its heat (a metaphor of the message shining down from heaven to all mankind).
The sun rises from one end of heaven and then its “circuit or Zodiac” is like a “bridegroom coming out of his chamber” to run the course of a wedding says King David. The Messiah Yahusha understood this too, knowing that he was the fulfillment of that Plan of Salvation. He was the Bridegroom and that role was defined in the Original Revelation in the stars called the Zodiac.
John 3:29 29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom (Psalm 19); but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore, this joy of mine is fulfilled.
Yahusha’s joy was fulfilled in knowing that he was the one spoken of in the message the Zodiac contains! Yahusha explains, in Matthew 25, that the “message of the Bridegroom” found written in the stars was a long time coming before he was born to fulfill it. Mankind “fell asleep” and the message of the Zodiac, which proclaims the bridegroom and the wedding, was forgotten:
Matthew 25 4 The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. 5 The bridegroom was a long time in coming (2000 year Age of Pisces until the Groom returns in Aquarius), and they all became drowsy and fell asleep (lost sigh of The Heavnely Scroll). 6 “At midnight the cry rang out (the Sign of the Son of Man in the sky): ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’
This is the meaning of the parable of the 10 virgins. We read in this parable that most people (5 virgins) would disregard the Zodiac and the message it contained of the coming Bridegroom (let the oil in their lamps run out). Others would study and retain the knowledge written in the stars, and be prepared for the arrival of the Bridegroom. Because his return is a “sign in the sky” or a prophetic marker in the constellations of the Zodiac.
We see that only those who understand the meaning of this message, and the reality of how the Feast Cycle is a fulfillment of the Plan of Salvation, are invited to the “wedding” foretold in the heavens that we “forgot”:
Revelation 19 9 And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of Yahuah.”
“These are the true words of Yahuah” is, in context, speaking of the marriage supper of the Lamb which is found prophesied in the Zodiac since the creation of the Universe. As I pointed out earlier, in addition to this message being of the Bridegroom running the course of a wedding (Psalms 19), it also speaks of “a Lamb that was slain” at creation (Revelation 13:8 and Revelation 5:6). In this way, the “true words of Yahuah” is the message contained in the Zodiac; the original gospel!
David sees the Sun as a prototype for The Messiah as a bridegroom and the path it takes through the constellation is the course of a wedding. This physical metaphor of the sun as the bridegroom (pointing to The Messiah) is repeated throughout scripture. This is, in fact, true as the Sun was created as a witness of the coming of the Messiah and what the Messiah would do. In other words, the sun of Yahuah is a physical to spiritual parallel of the son of Yahuah.
This striking declaration in Psalms 19 clearly tells us that Yahuah built into the Zodiac the story of redemption, and through the stars has been witnessing His plan to all humanity in a unique view only from Earth. The Original Revelation of Yahuah of Yahusha, found written in the stars represented by the Zodiac, is only told from the vantage point of Earth as we look up into the heavens at the eternal secrets they have preserved.
We read in 1 Corinthians 2:7 that Sha’ul mentions that he came to proclaim the “testimony of Yahuah” which is a message of wisdom concerning the sacrifice of Yahusha which is “predestined before the ages to our glory”. That message is that of a Lamb that was slaughtered before the foundation of the world (as John proclaimed in Revelation). All these references of Yahusha being proclaimed speaking directly of the Gospel message contained in the Zodiac. We read below this message, predestine before the ages, is a “mystery that has been hidden that Yahuah destined for our glory before time began”. In other words Yahuah wrote the Plan of Salvation into the stars!
Corinthians 2:7 And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony of Yahuah (about Yahusha which is The Heavenly Scroll). 2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Yahusha the Messiah and him crucified (as portrayed in The Heavenly Scroll). 3 I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. 4 My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, 5 so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on Yahuah’s power (displayed in Creation Enoch 35:3). 6 We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age (who twisted the Zodiac into witchcraft), who are coming to nothing. 7 No, we declare Yahuah’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that Yahuah destined for our glory before time began (authoring The Plan of Salvation into the heavens on Day 4). 8 None of the rulers of this age understood it (because it was corrupted by the watchers Enoch 9:6), for if they had, they would not have crucified the King of glory (The Heavenly Scroll Psalm 19 ‘the heavens tell of the Glory of Yahuah’).
If we are truly going to unlock the “mystery” of the moedim (annual Feast Cycle), we must begin there, before the ages (as Sha’ul indicated) with the message proclaimed in the stars. We must journey back to the very beginning and search for our answers as to “what” the Feast Cycle is telling us. The message in the stars is “the true original words of Yahuah” (Revelation 19:9).
We must look before the Feasts of Yahuah were given orally to Adam thru Moses, before they were written down in detailed instructions in the Mosaic Covenant. Why? Because now, in the Yahushaic Covenant, they have found their ultimate meaning; meaning which was ordained before the foundation of this earth and predestined before the ages as Sha’ul stated. That meaning, as King David proclaimed, is that of a Bridegroom running the course of a wedding.
This fundamental message, written into the stars by The Creator as a witness to all mankind, is further revealed in covenants made between The Creator and mankind. Each and every covenant in the Bible is a “marriage covenant” and the Law is the “marriage vows”. This Plan of Salvation through a wedding was further revealed to us in parables and idioms.
- Parable of the Wedding Banquet in Matthew 22
- Parable of the Faithful Servant in Matthew 24
- Parable of the 10 Virgins in Matthew 25
- Revelation 19
We find that Yahusha, who is the bridegroom, constantly taught the same message written in the stars, giving us more and more insight into the Plan of Salvation… the plan of the bridegroom redeeming his bride.
The Annual Wedding Portrait
The Appointed Times (or the Feast of Yahuah) each year are a literal rehearsal of this divine wedding proclaimed in the heavens (the Zodiac).
This message and meaning behind the annual feasts is hidden knowledge revealed only to those “invited to the wedding”. Like Sha’ul said, it was not understood by the leaders of Israel in the second temple period, or by those who lead us in this age even now.
The Messiah ben David and Messiah ben Joseph
The Messiah is represented in The Heavenly Scroll to die first and suffer; to earn the right to reign as King. The prophets understood this and represent the Messiah in Scripture as a double-natured servant/king. These prophecies are known as The Messiah ben Joseph (The Suffering Servant) and The Messiah ben David (The Conquering King). The Spring Feast give us the role of Messiah ben Joseph, as the Messiah must suffer and die for the forgiveness of sin. Then the Messiah is raised from the dead, granted eternal life, and returns as Conquering King (Messiah ben David) which is foretold in the Fall Feasts.
The Jews lost sight of The Heavenly Scroll which dictates the order the Messiah must fulfill the Plan of Salvation. He MUST come first as “shepherd” and die, then as “harvester” to gather into one the two houses and rule as King (Leo). Being weary after spending over 500 years in captivity, they simply did not want to submit to The Plan of Salvation, therefore, denying Yahusha as the Messiah because he did not come as their “King” first. He came to fulfill The Heavenly Scroll… not their selfish desires.
In The Heavenly Scroll, we see the dual nature/role of the Messiah foretold in the starry hosts (constellations) Virgo, Sagittarius, and Taurus! We see in these pictographs the Messiah will come “first as shepherd then as harvester”, he will be a “doubled natured seed”, and the “ruling Shepherd/King”! There is an order in The Plan of Salvation, the prophets, and the Feast Cycle all based on The Heavenly Scroll that the Messiah must fulfill. Until the Jews come out of their rebellion against The Plan of Salvation, deny themselves, and accept this divine order, they will remain outside of The Yahushaic Covenant!
VIRGO: A virgin will give birth to a beautiful glorious and righteous branch. The seed of the woman will be a man of humiliation to rise to be the desire of nations and will become exalted first as shepherd then as harvester.
SAGITTARIUS: The double-natured seed (servant/king) triumphs as a warrior and pleases the heavens, builds fires of punishment, casts down the dragon.
TAURUS: The conquering Ruler comes, the sublime vanquisher, to execute the great judgment, he is the ruling Shepherd King.
We see The Suffering Servant portrayed in the heavenly hosts (constellations) Libra through Capricorn which became the foundation of The Spring Feasts:
We see The Suffering Servant portrayed in the heavenly hosts (constellations) Libra through Capricorn which became the foundation of The Spring Feasts:
LIBRA: The scales demand a price to be paid of this seed, a cross to endure; the victim will be slain and purchase a crown. SCORPIO: There is a conflict between the seed and the serpent leading to a struggle with the enemy, the enemy is vanquished. SAGITTARIUS: The double-natured seed (servant/king) triumphs as a warrior and pleases the heavens, builds fires of punishment, casts down the dragon. CAPRICORNUS: Eternal life comes from his death, he's the Arrow of God, he is pierced, yet springs up again in abundant life.
We see The Conquering King portrayed in the heavenly hosts (constellations) Aries through Leo which were later articulated in the Fall Feasts!
PISCES: The Redeemer's people multiplied, supported and led by the Lamb, The Bride is exposed on earth, the Bridegroom is exalted. ARIES: The Lamb is found worthy, the Bride is made ready, Satan is bound, the strong man triumphs. TAURUS: The conquering Ruler comes, the sublime vanquisher, to execute the great judgment, he is the ruling Shepherd King. GEMINI: The Marriage of the Lamb, the enemy is trodden down, the Prince comes in great Glory. CANCER: The great Bride, the two Houses of Judah and Israel are united, they are brought safely into the kingdom. LEO: The Lion King is aroused for rending, the Serpent flees, the Bowl of Wrath is upon him, his Carcass is devoured. The Lion of the tribe of Judah rules as King.
The Physical Shadow of ‘Greater Truths’
Hebrew/Jewish weddings were pre-arranged marriages. They consisted of
- the father choosing a qualified groom
- the groom paying the dowry or “ransom” for the bride
- the groom introducing himself to her father
- the bride presenting herself to the bridegroom
- the bridegroom going away to prepare a place for her in his father’s estate
- the bridegroom returning for his bride
- the wedding
- the wedding banquet
Remember, in Psalms 19, David described the Zodiac in great detail. He said the Sun was a shadow picture of the Messiah as the Bridegroom ran the course of a wedding. With this in mind, let me show how perfectly the Feasts Cycle or Appointed Times of Yahuah reflect the physical marriage process of a Hebrew wedding. As foretold in the stars, the Bridegroom running his course.
Keeping in mind that a marriage between a man and a woman is a physical to spiritual parallel that should help us understand our roles as the Bride in the Spring and Fall Feasts:
- The father choosing a qualified Groom – this is reflected in Yahuah’s choice of the Messiah Yahusha as proclaimed through the prophets.
- The Rehearsal Dinner – the Chagigah meal on the 14th of Abib is a “remembrance meal” where we are to discuss the upcoming wedding rehearsal, and what each day represents. This is called “The Last Supper” in our Hellenized English Bibles. I explain all this in my upcoming book The Narrow Gate. We see Yahusha teach the meaning of the upcoming Passover and that it is to be celebrated each year “in remembrance/Chagigah) of him (1 Corinthians 11:24 and Luke 22:19).
- The Groom paying the dowry or “ransom” for the Bride – this is a shadow of Passover as Yahusha “paid the debt to the Father of the Bride” and redeemed us from our prior lives into a new life in covenant with Yahuah through Yahusha. He paid the dowry, or ransom, owed to our Father – Matthew 20:28 “just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
- The Groom introducing himself to the Father of the Bride – Feast of First fruits. John 20:17 “Yahusha said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father.”
- The Bride presenting herself to the Bridegroom and agreeing to the marriage vows – Shav’uot. On Shav’uot we are to follow the example set by Yahshua during Passover. We are to Mikveh ourselves, bring our own lives as an offering at the altar of Yahuah (a lamb without blemish), and then present ourselves properly to our Bridegroom on Shav’uot. We agree to the wedding vows (the Law) by saying “this we will do” or “I do” as they did at the foot of Mt. Sinai. It is a celebration of the giving of the Wedding Vows and our accepting them. Sha’ul expressed the way we are to present ourselves in following Yahusha’s example of Mikveh, circumcision, and bringing an offering. Again we see the Plan of Salvation is a marriage covenant:
Ephesians 5 – Sha’ul likens the example Yahusha set to marriage. Like I said, the feasts are a marriage celebration! 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as the Messiah loved the assembly and gave himself up for her (as The Passover Lamb paying the dowry) 26 to set her apart, (ritually) cleansing her by the washing with (Living) water according to the commandments (of Mikveh), 27 and to present her (consecrated) to himself (with a circumcised heart) as a radiant assembly, without spot or wrinkle or any other blemish (as Spotless Lambs... we offer our lives as living sacrifices), but holy and blameless (as the spotless Bride of Yahusha).
- The bridegroom going away to prepare a place for the bride in his father’s estate
John 14 Yahusha says “2 “In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. 3“If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. 4“And you know the way where I am going.” Here Yahusha is speaking in the Mystery Language a parable and idiom confirming the wedding. Yahusha goes and prepares a place for us in The Kingdom of Yahuah. He is not referring to a physical place (because we reign with him on Earth), he is referring to a place in the family of Yahuah. Yahusha is going to perform the duties of High Priest and offer the proper gifts and sacrifices before the throne of Yahuah so that we, in covenant with him, are accepted into the beloved family of Yahuah as His children.
- The Bridegroom returning for his Bride
Feast of Trumpets or Yom Teruah. This is a portrait of the second coming of the Bridegroom to receive his Bride. This occurs on the Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruah) which is celebrated over a two-day period at the beginning of the 7th month, because it is the only feast based on the timing of the new moon. Yom Terauh became known therefore as the idiom “the feast of which no man knows the day or hour” because we don’t know the exact timing of the new moon. Yahusha confirmed his return on the Feast of Trumpets when he used an idiom for this feast in Matthew 24:36 “”But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Here Yahusha was both confirming his return on the Feast of Trumpets and the arranged marriage using another idiom “no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father”. You see, the marriage was arranged by the father unknown to the son.
- The wedding
Yom Kippur or Day of Atonement. This is the actual wedding day celebration. The Groom atones for himself and for his new bride.
- The wedding banquet
Sukkot or The Feast of Tabernacles. This feast is known as the Wedding Banquet as portrayed in Revelation 19 and was the meaning behind the Parable of the Wedding Banquet in Matthew 22.
It is outside the scope of this first book to explain in detail the Feasts of Yahuah, how they fulfill the Plan of Salvation written in the stars, and our role in properly keeping them as His Bride. I cover this in great detail in this book series in my book ‘The Narrow Gate – The Annual Celebration of the Wedding’.
My point here in this book is that David understood the true meaning of the Zodiac! The message in the Zodiac is told from the standpoint of a “wedding” as the bridegroom comes out of his chambers and runs his course! The fundamental message to all humanity written in the stars at creation is that of a “groom” coming forth, paying the ultimate price for his bride with his life, and redeeming her from death, and ruling together in the Kingdom!
Later in this book we will examine this message in great detail. This message was further defined by Yahuah and laid out in His Ordained Feast Cycle, as we celebrate The Plan of Salvation and rehearse our role each year. A message that goes out to all the Earth as the Sun travels its course through the Zodiac:
Feast of Passover – the groom pays the dowry.
Feast of First Fruits – the Groom presents himself to the Father of the Bride spotless and ready for his Bride.
Feast of Weeks – the groom goes to prepare a place for the Bride in his Father’s estate.
Feast of Shav’uot – the Bride presents herself to the Groom spotless and ready and the wedding vows are agreed upon.
Feast of Trumpets – the Groom returns for his Bride, is announced and comes forth. The Bride is revealed.
Feast of the Day of Atonement – the Groom makes atonement for himself and his Bride as they become “one” through covenant in a wedding ceremony.
Feast of Tabernacles – the Wedding Banquet
Let us look at the message contained in the Zodiac (proclaimed in the heavens from the foundation of the world) predestined for our Glory. Does this message proclaim a Bridegroom running the course of a wedding? Is the message in the heavens the foundation of the annual Feast cycle? As Sha’ul stated, The Heavenly Scroll is the foundation of ‘the faith of Abraham’ and contains all the secrets of the mysteries of Yahuah.
