1. About Predestination

One of Scripture’s very first lessons is that, left to our own devices, we humans have an inherent tendency to make the wrong kinds of choices. B’reisheet (Genesis) 3:6 6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and...

2. Tree of Knowledge, Tree of Life

Revelation 22:14 tells us that those who perform His commandments will have the right to the Tree of Life, that they may enter into the gates of the city (Renewed Jerusalem). Hitgalut (Revelation) 22:14-15 14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the...

3. The Set-apart Names

In Psalms 7:17, David told us that he sang praises to the name of YHWH Most High. Tehillim (Psalms) 7:17 17 I will praise YHWH according to His righteousness, and will sing praise to the name YHWH Most High. The Psalms tell us that YHWH set upon high those who...

4. Yeshua: Manifestation of YHWH

YHWH’s nature is perennially debated. This debate may stem partly from the fact that it is difficult for human intellect to imagine how Yeshua (J-sus) could be both human and divine, and perhaps it stems from a healthy desire to avoid pagan custom and tradition. Yehezqel (Ezekiel) 28:14-15 14 “You...

5. Forbidden Images

When YHWH created man, He created him in His own image; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:26-27 26 Then Elohim said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air,...

6. About Sacrifices

Many scholars teach that because Yeshua died for our sins, the animal sacrifices written in Torah are now done away with. Others question this, pointing out how Yeshua said that none of the commandments in the Torah (the Laws of Moses) would pass away so long as heaven and earth...

7. About Ritual Cleanness

In this chapter we are going to talk about three different things: spiritual health, physical health, and ritual cleanness. These are three totally different things, but sometimes there are relationships between them. However, we have to be careful what conclusions we draw, because the relationships do not always hold true...

8. Head Coverings in Scripture

In Nazarene Israel we show that the Torah is an eternal marital covenant which can never be done away with. Mattityahu (Matthew) 5:17-18 17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill [part of the prophecies...

9. About Tassels (Tzitzit)

Scripture tells us to make tassels on the four corners of the clothing with which we cover ourselves, so that we might look upon them, and remember to do all of His commandments. Bemidbar (Numbers) 15:37-40 37 Again YHWH spoke to Moshe, saying, 38 “Speak to the children of Israel:...

10. About Speaking in Tongues

Satan is the prince of this world, and Satan’s legal and justice systems prevail here on earth. The reason Satan’s systems prevail in the nations is that men insist upon attempting to govern themselves according to their own wisdom and understanding. However, men are not YHWH, and man’s thoughts are...

11. Judges and Judicial Authority

Both Jewish and Christian organizations claim to hold judicial authority. The Papacy seeks to re-conquer all of Christendom via the Ecumenical Movement, and the Orthodox Jewish Sanhedrin also lays claim to judicial authority over Israel. However, as this study will show, their claims to authority are illegitimate, as these institutions...

12. Obedience to Government

In an earlier version of this article we argued that it was always right to submit to the governments which are placed over us, based on Romans 13 and other verses. However, further study revealed that while this is the general rule, there are times Yahweh expects us to disobey...

13. The Separation of Assembly and State

On a cold wintry night, November the 10th, 1619, a French soldier named Rene Descartes shut himself in a medieval sweat lodge, and had three visions in which a “spirit” revealed a new philosophy to him, which was contrary to Yahweh’s word. After considering these three demonic visions for some...

14. No Other Foundation

In, “The Separation of Assembly and State” we showed how Judaism, Catholicism, Islam, and Protestantism are like four clusters of arrows that have each missed the bullseye a little. Judaism misses the mark in that it claims Yahweh gave the rabbis the authority to rewrite the Torah. Catholicism misses the...

15. Cut Your Taxes in Half

On the back of the U.S. dollar bill is an unfinished pyramid with Satan’s “All-seeing eye,” and a verse announcing the birth of a secular ‘New World Order’ (“Annuit Coeptis Novus Ordo Seclorum”). But if the secular New World Order is Satan’s attempt to govern the world without YHWH, then...

16. Re-establishing Righteous Money

YHWH tells us to have honest scales, and to do no injustice in measurement of length, weight, or volume. Leviticus 19:35-36 35 “You shall do no injustice in judgment, in measurement of length, weight, or volume. 36 You shall have honest scales, honest weights, an honest ephah, and an honest...
