The Book of Life

Deu 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: In the Scriptures we see many different factual stories that talk about people who were righteous, evil, careful, reckless, obedient, disobedient, truthful, untruthful, loving, hating, etc. People who did many miracles, led an army to victory, prophesied, blessed, cursed, and much more. The people I want to focus on are the ones who were or weren't obedient to YAHUWAH. In this study I will contrast the two and show you the effects of obedience, versus the effects of disobedience. In the end we will see which one YAHUWAH is well pleased with and blesses versus the one YAHUWAH is very displeased with and curses. We will do a thorough study on the law whether it was done away with or is still standing. We will also do a special study on the Sabbath. So please stay with me, stay focused, and read all of this information with an open heart and maybe in the end you will have a life changing experience.

Quick Note:
I will be using the true names of the Heavenly Father YAHUWAH (yah-hoo-wah) and His Son our Savior YAHUWSHUWA (yah-hoo-shoo-wah), because Lord is another form of Baal which is a Phoenician deity, and Jesus is another form of Zeus which is a Greek deity (God). I will use Aluah (el-loo-wah, singular) which is Hebrew for Mighty One, and aluahym (el-loowah-heem, plural) which is Hebrew for mighty ones, because God is another form of Gad which is a Babylonian deity of fortune. Also, I will use Mashyach (ma-shee-yach) which is Hebrew for Anointed One, because Christ means to be anointed in a sensual way. YAHUWAH, YAHUWSHUWA, Aluah, and Mashyach are all pure in their origin. Unlike Lord, Jesus, God, and Christ, which are names of blasphemy and are not to be spoken. Ex 23:13 And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect (careful): and make no mention of the names of other aluahym, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth. I also will replace some terms that appear often in the Scriptures due to their faults, flaws, and misdirection.

THE EFFECTS OF OBEDIENCE VERSUS THE EFFECTS OF DISOBEDIENCE


In the Scriptures there are many examples of the effects of obedience versus the effects of disobedience, but I'm only going to show you a small portion of them. If you want any further information about obedience and disobedience you can search the Scriptures. The examples of obedience and disobedience are very easy to find in the Scriptures, because the Scriptures are full of of factual stories of obedience and disobedience. Look at Noah's example. We see if we read Gen 6, 7, & 8 that Noah found grace in the eyes of YAHUWAH, he was a just man and perfect in his generations, and he walked with Aluah. Then we see that YAHUWAH looked upon the earth, and it was corrupt. YAHUWAH said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come, I will destroy them with the earth. YAHUWAH told Noah to make an ark of gopher wood. And YAHUWAH said to Noah, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh. But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee. And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep
1

them alive with thee; they shall be male and female. And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them. Thus did Noah; according to all that Aluah commanded him, so did he. After Noah got done building the ark, YAHUWAH said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark. Also of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. Notice that even before Sinai there was clean and unclean. YAHUWAH caused it to rain upon the earth for forty days and forty nights; and every living substance YAHUWAH made He destroyed from off the face of the earth. And so, Noah did according unto all that YAHUWAH commanded him. The rain fell to the earth and the earth was covered with water so that every living thing that had breath and lived on dry land died. And the water was upon the earth 150 days, and YAHUWAH remembered Noah and the rain ceased. Noah removed the covering of the ark and saw that the land was dry. And YAHUWAH said unto Noah, Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee. And bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth. And Noah went forth and his wife, his sons, his sons' wives with him: went forth out of the ark. And Noah built an altar unto YAHUWAH; and took of every clean creature, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. And YAHUWAH smelled a sweet savor; and YAHUWAH said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; neither will I again smite anymore everything living, as I have done. YAHUWAH has kept and is still keeping the covenant that He made with man, that He would never again flood the whole earth and He gave us the rainbow as a sign. What would have happened if Noah didn't listen to the commands YAHUWAH gave him to build the ark, take two of each animal male and female and seven of every clean animal, into the ark, with his family? All life would have been destroyed, and that would have been the end for life on planet earth. Praise YAHUWAH for faithful Noah and his example of obedience. The effects of that obedience was life. In 1 Ki 13:1-30 we read about a man (prophet) of YAHUWAH, that came out of Judah by the word of YAHUWAH unto Bethel: and Jeroboam stood by the altar (a pagan alter to worship pagan idols) to burn incense. And the prophet cried against the altar in the word of YAHUWAH. And the prophet gave a sign, saying, This is the sign which YAHUWAH hath spoken; Behold, the altar shall be rent, and the ashes that are upon it shall be poured out. So the altar was rent, and the ashes poured out, according to the sign which the prophet had given by the word of YAHUWAH. Jeroboam (the king) offered for the prophet to sit down with him and eat and drink, but the prophet answered Jeroboam, If thou wilt give me half thine house, I will not go in with thee, neither will I eat nor drink in this place: For so was it charged me by the word of YAHUWAH, saying, Do not eat, nor drink, nor turn again by the same way that thou camest. So the man of Aluah went another way, and returned not by the way that he came to Bethel. Now there dwelt an old prophet in Bethel; and his sons came and told him all the works that the man of Aluah had done in Bethel. And their father said unto them, What way went he? His sons told him, then he said unto his sons, Saddle me the donkey, so they did. And he went after the man of Aluah, and found him sitting under an oak: and he said unto him, Art thou the man of Aluah that camest from Judah? And he said, I am. Then he offered him to come and eat. And he said, I may not return with thee, nor go in with thee: neither will I eat nor drink in this place: For it was said to me by the word of YAHUWAH, Thou shalt not eat nor drink there, nor turn again to go
2

by the way that thou camest. He said, I am a prophet also; and an angel spoke unto me, saying, Bring him back with thee into thine house, that he may eat and drink. But he lied unto him. So the man of Aluah went back with him, and did eat, and drink. And as they sat at the table, the word of YAHUWAH came unto the old prophet. And he spake unto the other man of Aluah, saying, Thus saith YAHUWAH, Forasmuch as thou hast disobeyed YAHUWAH, and hast not kept the commandment which YAHUWAH commanded thee, But came back, and did eat and drink in the place, which YAHUWAH did say to thee, Eat no bread, and drink no water; thy carcass shall not come unto the sepulcher of thy fathers. And after the man of Aluah ate, and drank, the old prophet saddled the donkey, for the man of Aluah whom he brought back. Now after the man of Aluah that came from Judah left, a lion met him by the way, and slew him. And when the old prophet heard it, he said, It is the man of Aluah, who was disobedient unto the word of YAHUWAH: therefore YAHUWAH hath delivered him unto the lion, which hath torn him, and slain him, according to the word of YAHUWAH, which he spoke unto him. So the old prophet had him brought back and buried. What would have happened if the prophet in 1 King 13 would have listened to YAHUWAH? He would have lived a longer life, but he was disobedient and in return suffered the consequences of his disobedience, death. We can see this prophet's example of disobedience, and that the effects of his disobedience was death. Last but not least how about Acts 4, where the Sanhedrin threaten Peter and John with harsh words not to speak in YAHUWSHUWA'S name. What would have happened if they would have listened to the Sanhedrin? They wouldn't have been able to perform the wonderful miracles they performed and would not have been able to teach the truth to all the people they taught. We need to make certain that we are not listening to men but YAHUWAH. So let us be careful to listen to YAHUWAH and obey Him. We need to be careful about what we listen to men about, because it could be our life. If we don't listen to YAHUWAH we might die, or even worse, instead of dying physically, we could die spiritually (in our ruach). We need to make sure that never happens. We need to obey YAHUWAH'S every word from least even unto the greatest.

THE LAW
Most people say that the law is done away with, or that it got nailed to the cross with our Savior. But is that true, is the law really done away with? Please follow this study closely to find out the answer. People pray to the Father, plead, and beg Him to hear (listen to) them, but when He wants them to listen to Him, they ignore Him and don't care about what He is trying to tell them. Let me ask this question, if we don't care to listen to YAHUWAH, obey Him, or hear Him, why do we expect Him to care about what we ask Him, why do we expect Him to hear us, or care to answer our prayers? A lot of people say that the Scriptures say something they are not. They try to twist them to make them say things they want them to say instead of taking them with a pure heart and trying to make sure exactly what is being said or referred to, and they do it to their own destruction. Take a look at 2 Pe 3:14-18 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. And account that the longsuffering of our Master is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them
3

of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other Scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Master and Savior YAHUWSHUWA Mashyach. To him be esteem both now and forever. Amen. So we better be sure of how we interpret YAHUWAH'S word. We need to make sure that it is in a true, righteous, and just way. That no matter what, whether we like what YAHUWAH'S word says, or not, we need to speak the truth about it and abide by it. Then we will be truly blessed, YAHUWAH will forgive us our transgressions (lawless deeds), purge away our sins, He will be our Aluah, and we will be His people. What an enormous blessing that is! We need to sanctify (set apart) YAHUWAH Aluah in our hearts: and be ready always to give an answer (a defense) to every person that asketh a reason of the hope that is in us with meekness and fear. (1 Pete 3:15) To do that, we need to make sure that we know what we are talking about, make sure it is the truth and nothing but the whole truth, for ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32), and we need to live by it, that means walk the walk and not just talk the talk. Look at James 1:19-25, Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of Aluah. Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. So we need to be doers of the Word (Scriptures) and not just hearers, we need to continue in the perfect law of liberty, being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer, and we will be blessed in what we do. Praise YAHUWAH!!! Most everyone knows that the book of Revelation reveals things that will take place in the end times, with that being said take a look at Rev 22:6-19. In verse 6 the messenger of YAHUWAH is talking and says that the sayings (of this book) are faithful and true. Verse seven says, Behold I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. In verse 9 the messenger says, He is of them that keep the sayings of this book. Read verse 14 and it says, Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. Verse 15 goes on to say, For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. All of which is against the law to do. In verse 16 YAHUWSHUWA says, I YAHUWSHUWA have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the congregations. Look at verse 17 it says, And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. Verses 1819, For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, Aluah shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, Aluah shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the set apart city, and from the things which are written in this book. When YAHUWAH tells us not to add or take anything from His word then we need to make sure we listen, unlike most people who say the law is done away

with, gone, nailed to the cross. But Ecc 3:14 plainly tells us, I know that, whatsoever Aluah doeth, it shall be forever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and Aluah doeth it, that men should fear before him. As we already saw Rev 22:18-19 says the same thing and also threatens us with harsh punishments if we don't obey. People today put to much trust in pastors (preachers) to teach them all about the truth (draw their water from the well [of life]). They go to church sit down and listen to whatever the preacher has to say, then they go home or whatever else. They don't search to see if what the preacher was saying was true or untrue, they assume that he knew what he was talking about. They should study it out for themselves like the people of Berea who searched the Scriptures daily to see whether the things the apostles said were true (Act 17:10-11). A lot of pastors have led YAHUWAH'S flock astray some knowingly doing it, others unknowingly, but are lost themselves, deceived by false teachings so engraved into their minds. Jer 10:21 For the pastors are become brutish, and have not sought YAHUWAH: therefore they shall not prosper, and all their flocks shall be scattered. Jer 12:10-11 Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness. They have made it desolate, and being desolate it mourneth unto me; the whole land is made desolate, because no man layeth it to heart. Jer 23:1-5 Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith YAHUWAH. Therefore thus saith YAHUWAH Aluah of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith YAHUWAH. And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith YAHUWAH. Behold, the days come, saith YAHUWAH, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. We need to study to show ourselves approved unto Aluah, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Ti 2:15). We need to search for the truth and it will make us free, free from what? Sin, and what is sin? Sin is the transgression of the law (1 Jon 3:4). Also we should want to search out everything we hear to prove whether it is wrong or whether it is right, like the people of Berea. The Old Testament and the New Testament people say are two different Scriptures. The impression given is that the new is better then the old and that the new has done away with or replaced the old. This is very wrong, false, erroneous, and very dangerous to say the least. People need to watch what they read into or what they let influence them. The so called Old Testament and New Testament are for both Jews and Gentiles (nations) alike. The word new, as in New testament is Gre. # 2537. new especially in freshness (regenerate, [to revive, bring in existence again, to restore, to be born again spiritually]). The so called New (restored) covenant that is being talked about is YAHUWAH taking His law and writing it in our minds and hearts. Jer 31:31-34 Behold, the days come, saith YAHUWAH, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt;
5

which my covenant they broke, although I was a husband unto them, saith YAHUWAH: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith YAHUWAH, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their Aluah, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know YAHUWAH: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith YAHUWAH: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. Heb 8:7-12 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith YAHUWAH, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith YAHUWAH. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith YAHUWAH; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a Aluah, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know YAHUWAH: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. Heb 10:16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith YAHUWAH, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; That right there is YAHUWAH'S restored covenant that He is making with His people, putting His law, commandments, statutes, ordinances, etc. in their hearts and minds. Isa 51:7 Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings. YAHUWAH is going to put His law in our hearts. We see in the Scriptures that YAHUWAH time and time again gets angry with His people. He asks them, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws? (Exo 16:28). Then you also see that He says His commandments are forever. Since YAHUWAH cannot lie as it says in Heb 6:18, and forever hasn't ended, because forever is forever there is no way of getting around that, then we are to still keep YAHUWAH'S commandments. In Rev 14:12, it says, Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of Aluah, and the faith of YAHUWSHUWA., This is talking about the end times, which is yet to come. If you look at Zech 14:16-19 it says, And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, YAHUWAH of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, YAHUWAH of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith YAHUWAH will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. This also is talking about the end times, that means that YAHUWAH will require all flesh to keep this feast which He commanded to be kept in Lev 23:41 saying, And ye shall keep it a feast unto YAHUWAH seven days in the year. It shall be a statute forever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month. We need to keep the law and understand that it was not and never will be
6

done away with, because YAHUWAH our Aluah, which cannot lie (Heb 6:18), said FOREVER, He didn't say for a few days, weeks, months, years, decades, or centuries, but He plainly, clearly, commanded FOREVER. The law was meant to be to us a kind of spiritual (ruach) food, basically that we would feed off of it not physically but spiritually (in our ruach), to fill ourselves with its righteous judgments. Like in Psa 1:2 But his delight is in the law of YAHUWAH; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. So we need to feed on and fill ourselves with YAHUWAH'S word. YAHUWAH gave us the law for our well being. Science even backs up such things as our health improving if we rest on the seventh day, and eating only clean animals. We might not know the exact reasons why YAHUWAH commands us to do things such as this, but we need to understand that it is for our well being. Some times when an adult tells a child to do something and the child not understanding why, might ask the adult, what for? The adult then might answer because I said so. The child must have faith that the adult knows what is best and as the child grows it may began to understand why it was told to do the things it was told to do. The child might even find out that it was for its own safety or health. We, like the child, might not understand why YAHUWAH tells us to do the things He tells us to but we need to have faith in YAHUWAH that He knows what is best for us and as we grow we may find out the answers to the reason why YAHUWAH commands us to do the things He does. We might even find out that it is for our own safety or health. This is what is meant by having a childlike faith (Mar 10:15, Luk 18:17), that we believe in YAHUWAH, His son YAHUWSHUWA, that we obey YAHUWAH, and trust that He knows what is best for us even if we don't fully understand why He tells us to do the things He tells us to do. If mankind would have obeyed YAHUWAH from the very beginning when he commanded them not to partake of the tree of knowledge of righteousness and evilness and said if they did partake of it they would surly die (Gen 2:16-17). We would still have Adam and Eve living with us this day, there would be no murders, no theft, no sins, everything would be perfect. But man disobeyed YAHUWAH'S command, ate of the forbidden fruit and in return YAHUWAH kept his word of punishment for disobeying his command, that punishment was death. If you look at the commandments YAHUWAH gave to all mankind you will see that YAHUWAH strictly commands all His people and the strangers that are to become His people to keep His commandments. On some of YAHUWAH'S commandments if men were to break them the punishment was death, others sacrifice. YAHUWAH says that these are His commandments forever. If you look at the word forever, you will see that it means for eternity, continually, always. So that means they are still in tact today, because no one has told me that we have reached the end of forever. NEWS FLASH!!! You can't reach the end of forever, because there is no end to forever, forever goes on, and on, and on. YAHUWAH cannot lie, look at Heb 6:1718 by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for Aluah to lie. So since YAHUWAH cannot lie the commandments still remain, because we still haven't and never will reach the end of forever. YAHUWAH only gives us 613 commandments to live by when men try to enforce millions of laws on us. Some being so retarded as not being able to spit on a side walk and not being allowed to put an ice cream cone in your pocket, just to name a few. We would never be capable of keeping all of those millions of laws. But we can keep the 613 commandments YAHUWAH gives us to live by especially the Big Ten, or at least try our very best.
7

We are supposed to try to be like YAHUWSHUWA in everything we do. Since that is the case, let us take a look at YAHUWSHUWA and see what we can glean from the way He lived His life. YAHUWSHUWA obeyed YAHUWAH'S every word even unto death He never disobeyed Him. Phi 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the stake. YAHUWSHUWA was meek, humble, kind, loving, caring, truthful, thankful, etc. PERFECT! He kept all of the commandments not of men, but of YAHUWAH. YAHUWSHUWA says in Matt 5:17-19, Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Here we can see clearly YAHUWSHUWA didn't come to destroy (do away with) the law, but to fulfill (bring to realization, perform, do, obey or follow) it. Heaven and earth haven't passed, so the law is still in tact, every jot and tittle of it. If anybody breaks one of the least of the commandments and teaches men to do so they will be called least in the kingdom of heaven. YAHUWSHUWA is definitely not least in the kingdom of heaven, clearly right here from His own mouth He is teaching men to keep the law and whoever shall do and teach it the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. YAHUWSHUWA is most definitely great in the kingdom of heaven, because He kept the law and taught it to men. Matt 22:34-40 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together. Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, Master, which is the great commandment in the law? YAHUWSHUWA said unto him, Thou shalt love YAHUWAH thy Aluah with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Here YAHUWSHUWA quotes the first two commandments. Loving YAHUWAH is no doubt the first and greatest commandment above all and the second is to love thy neighbor as thyself. Then YAHUWSHUWA goes on to say, On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Meaning if we keep these two commandments to their fullest extent then the others will follow. Because if we truly love YAHUWAH to the fullest extent then we will keep His Sabbaths, and all of His appointed times, we will want to obey Him and part of obeying Him is keeping His commandments. Also, if we love our neighbors as ourselves we will do them no harm ,we will not take anything that is theirs, we will not bear a false witness against them, we will not covet anything that is theirs, and etc. So this clearly shows YAHUWSHUWA fully supports the law. In Matt 23:23 YAHUWSHUWA says, Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Here YAHUWSHUWA is showing the scribes and Pharisees were out of balance, because they put paying tithes, above the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy and faith. The scribes and Pharisees like so many other people today in the current age were out of balance and put the petty little things above the major ones which in the end does not make YAHUWAH happy with
8

them, but angry. Woe to them because outwardly they appear to be righteous but inwardly are full of hypocrisy and iniquity, which is lawlessness (Matt 23:28). People such as them will be judged. Luk 2:24 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of YAHUWAH, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons. Luk 2:39-40 And when they had performed all things according to the law of YAHUWAH, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth. And the child grew, and waxed strong in ruach (spirit), filled with wisdom: and the grace of Aluah was upon him. Here YAHUWAH even used YAHUWSHUWA'S earthly parents to help Him as a little baby perform the duties of the law, such as circumcising Him on the eighth day (Lev 12:3), taking Him to Jerusalem to present Him before YAHUWAH (Exo 23:17), and offering a sacrifice (Lev 12). Doing all of these things according to the law of YAHUWAH. Luk 10:25-28 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He (YAHUWSHUWA) said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou? And he answering said, Thou shalt love YAHUWAH thy Aluah with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor as thyself. And he (YAHUWSHUWA) said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live. Right here YAHUWSHUWA is declaring if we want eternal life, then we need to keep the commandments, we need to obey YAHUWAH'S every word, and search the Scriptures ourselves to see what YAHUWAH is trying to tell us and heed it. In Matt 4:4 where it says It is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of Aluah. YAHUWSHUWA is quoting from Deu 8:3. So the need of the hour is to heed to YAHUWAH'S every word and let that guide our lives. YAHUWSHUWA says in Luk 16:17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail. Heaven and earth are still standing and so is the law. Luk 24:44 And he (YAHUWSHUWA) said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Here we see that YAHUWSHUWA obviously knew the law and that Him coming and dying was fulfilling the law. Look at what YAHUWSHUWA says in Jon 7:19 Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me? Here YAHUWSHUWA flat out tells the people that they aren't keeping the law. In Joh 15:10 YAHUWSHUWA said, If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. So very clearly we can see that YAHUWSHUWA supported the law, taught the law, and kept the law. He never sinned and what is sin? The Scriptures tell us in 1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin trangresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. YAHUWSHUWA was faithful in everything He did, He never sinned, He never transgressed the law. He had no spot or blemish, He was PERFECT, that is why He was an acceptable atonement for our sins. Praise YAHUWAH for His blameless, sinless, PERFECT son. Since we are to reflect Him in everything we do, then we need to reflect Him by obeying YAHUWAH in everything, such as keeping His commandments, no matter what. Unlike in 1 Sam 15 where Saul disobeys YAHUWAH by not destroying all the Amalekites and what Saul is told in verse 22-23 is, Hath YAHUWAH as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the
9

voice of YAHUWAH? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of YAHUWAH, he hath also rejected thee from being king. So it's saying that YAHUWAH would rather us obey and hearken unto Him than to sacrifice unto Him even the fat of rams, that is how important listening to YAHUWAH is to Him and even more. Ecc 12:13 says, Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear Aluah, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. YAHUWAH considers rebellion as the sin of witchcraft and stubbornness as iniquity and idolatry (1 Sam 15:23). So the need is to obey YAHUWAH, because if we reject the word of YAHUWAH, He will reject us and if that happens than woe unto us. Peter saw a vision of a great sheet that was let down from heaven with all sorts of unclean creatures, upon which he was told to kill and eat, but Peter answered not so, master; for I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean. Then the voice said unto Peter, What Aluah hath cleansed, that call not thou common. This happened three times and after Peter denying was received up into heaven (Act 10:10-16). They think because of this vision that it is okay to eat unclean foods. Which to them leads to the law being done away with. That is a pathetic way to try to make what you want to eat or do okay. That is because they don't care about what is right or wrong, they just want to try to cover up their sins. Which is not right, true or just, instead of admitting them and asking for forgiveness like we are suppose to do. They don't read the Scriptures with an open heart or mind that is willing to make changes, or sacrifices of things they love, such as certain meats. Mic 3:2 Who hate the just, and love the evil; who pluck off their skin from off them, and their flesh from off their bones; Psa 52:3 Thou lovest evil more than justice; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah. Rom 12:9 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is just. They are too comfortable where they are to even think about changing, and that truly is a sad, sorry way of living life. But what is being said or shown through the letting down of the sheet full of unclean animals, the voice telling Peter eat, which he didn't do, was that he (Jews) should not call the Gentiles common or unclean, when YAHUWAH has cleansed them from their sin. You can see this if you continue to read on, Act 10:28 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but Aluah hath showed me that I should not call any man common or unclean. That right there is the interpretation of the vision Peter had. The Jews and their leaders at that time were the ones who said it to be unlawful for them to keep company or come unto one of another nation and not YAHUWAH. YAHUWAH through that vision was showing Peter that he was listening to men's (the Jew's) laws and not YAHUWAH'S. What YAHUWAH teaches about people of other nations (Gentiles) if you read Exo 12:49 is, One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger (Gentile) that sojourneth among you. And Num 15:15-16 One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger (Gentile) that sojourneth with you, an ordinance forever in your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger (Gentile) be before YAHUWAH. One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger (Gentile) that sojourneth with you. So actually instead of making the law void as so many people think, Acts 10 is actually proving that the law of YAHUWAH still is standing, by YAHUWAH telling Peter that he is not to call the Gentiles (strangers) that have turned to Him common or unclean, because the Gentiles (strangers) that believe are to be as one of their own. Men have tried to
10

overrule YAHUWAH'S commandments with making up their own and implanting it in people's hearts who don't know how to separate the truth from lies. But the people who try to overpower YAHUWAH and His word will get their reward (Rev 22:18-19, Deu 4:2). Let us look at a verse that a lot of people try to use to say the law is not for the Gentiles or it is done away with. KJV, Act 15:24 Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain who went out from us, have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law; to whom we gave no such commandment: The phrase, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law, is not in the original text, but it was added by the translators. Some of the translators who were in charge of translating the Scriptures were non-believers or pagans. Why people did this and continue to do this is because ha satan has, and will continue to blind and deceive many with his lies and deceits. The translators added to YAHUWAH'S word to mislead the people into believing a lie that was forged by ha satan. If you don't believe me look at these other versions of Scriptures which put the verse the way it was meant to be written. ISV Act 15:24 We have heard that some men, coming from us without instructions from us, have said things to trouble you and have unsettled your minds. GW Act 15:24 We have heard that some individuals who came from us have confused you with statements that disturb you. We did not authorize these men to speak. GNB Act 15:24 We have heard that some who went from our group have troubled and upset you by what they said; they had not, however, received any instruction from us. WNT (1912) Act 15:24 As we have been informed that certain persons who have gone out from among us have disturbed you by their teaching and have unsettled your minds, without having received any such instructions from us; DRB (1899) Act 15:24 Forasmuch as we have heard that some going out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, to whom we gave no commandment: CEV Act 15:24 We have heard that some people from here have terribly upset you by what they said. But we did not send them! BBE (1965) Act 15:24 Because we have knowledge that some who went from us have been troubling you with their words, putting your souls in doubt; to whom we gave no such order; ASV (1901) Act 15:24 Forasmuch as we have heard that certain who went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls; to whom we gave no commandment; Notice that none of these versions say anything about the law, but since the KJV is the most widely used version of the Scriptures not many people notice the falsehood of this verse. So the phrase, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law, is not supposed to be there, but it was slipped into our Scriptures by the translators. They added to YAHUWAH'S word to deceive the people into believing a lie, mischief, and falsehood. But they will get their reward, because YAHUWAH does not take it lightly when someone messes around with His set apart Word. Rev 22:18-19 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, Aluah shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, Aluah shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the set apart city, and from the things which are written in this book. Deu 4:2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish aught from it, that ye may keep the commandments of YAHUWAH your Aluah which I
11

command you. Deu 12:32 What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it. Those are some powerful verses. So let us make for sure that we aren't one of the people who try to add or take away anything from YAHUWAH'S word. Now if we come to a place where we hear the truth, realize we are wrong and have been disobeying YAHUWAH, we need to stop what we have been doing wrong, repent, ask for YAHUWAH to forgive us, and start doing what we are told to do by YAHUWAH in His Word (Scriptures), then YAHUWAH will forgive us our sins. Psa 51:17 The sacrifices of Aluah are a broken Ruach (spirit): a broken and contrite heart, O Aluah, thou wilt not despise. Look also at Num 14:18, 2 Chr 7:14, Psa 32:1-2, and Psa 86:5. So if we have a broken heart about the wrong we have done, try with all that is within us to never do it again, and ask YAHUWAH to forgive us, He will because YAHUWAH is always ready to forgive if we are truly sorry for what we have done wrong. Yes, YAHUWSHUWA died for all our sins but if we continue to practice them, instead of forsaking them, then we make YAHUWSHUWA'S death to no effect for ourselves. YAHUWAH has no delight in the death of the wicked but would much rather them turn from their evil ways, repent for what they have done wrong and with a strong purpose do whats right, true and just. Take a look at, Eze 18:23 Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith YAHUWAH Aluah: and not that he should return from his ways, and live? Eze 18:31-32 Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new ruach (spirit): for why will ye die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith YAHUWAH Aluah: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye. Eze 33:11 Say unto them, As I live, saith YAHUWAH Aluah, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel? We need to forsake all wickedness and cling to all righteousness. What is righteousness? True righteousness is keeping YAHUWAH'S commandments and in doing so we can finally live. Before we come to righteousness we are dead in our sins, but when we come to righteousness we are alive in YAHUWAH. If we go on in our sins what fruit have we in those things? For the end of those things is death, (Rom 6:21,23) If we continue in righteousness the end of that is everlasting life, look also at Psa 11:19, Prov 11:19, and Jon 12:49-50. So if we keep YAHUWAH'S commandments and obey YAHUWAH in everything we do, who is the benefactor, us or YAHUWAH? The answer is plain and clear. YAHUWAH doesn't need us but on the other hand we can't live without Him, WE ARE THE BENEFACTORS! YAHUWAH is so gracious, full of tender compassion, loving kindness, and mercy, to bestow upon us this great favor, to actually care enough for us to give us direction on how to live our lives. Praise YAHUWAH!! In Act 15:19-21 the disciples are asked what to require of the Gentiles that have turned to YAHUWAH, and James stands up and says, Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to Aluah: But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from
12

blood. For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every Sabbath day. So he tells the gentiles to abstain from pollutions of idols, which includes numerous things such as, bowing down to other false aluahym or including ourselves in any thing to do with them like eating foods that have been offered unto them. To abstain from fornication, which includes a numerous amount of things, such as cheating on your spouse, or two of the same gender joining together in an unrighteous way, that is only meant for people of the opposite gender. To abstain from things that have been strangled, which includes quite a few things, such as not eating an animal that has been choked to death, or even an animal that has been neutered, spayed or that cannot reproduce. To abstain from blood, which includes a generous amount of things, such as not eating our meat rare where there is still blood, or even drinking blood like some people do. There is a wide variety of things that are being referred to with these few words. But notice that James tells them that Moses has them that teach about his law (his five books he wrote) in every city, being read in the synagogues every Sabbath. The KJV might not specifically say the law but we all know when people refer to Moses the law automatically is involved. But if you don't believe me look at these other versions of Scriptures. BBE (1965) Act 15:21 Moses, from times long past, has his preachers in every town, reading his law in the Synagogues every Sabbath. GNB Act 15:21 For the Law of Moses has been read for a very long time in the synagogues every Sabbath, and his words are preached in every town. CEV Act 15:21 We must remember that the Law of Moses has been preached in city after city for many years, and every Sabbath it is read when we Jews meet. So what they were saying is that they need to get the Gentiles that were turned to Aluah to stay away from pollutions of idols, from fornication, from things strangled, from blood, and that they can go to the synagogues where Moses's five books are taught to learn the whole law. The Gentiles were babes to the truth so they needed to be fed with milk until they were able to handle meat. In other words, the Gentiles needed to learn about the truth slowly so that they weren't overwhelmed or discouraged, and when they were able to hear they were fed the whole law, commandments, statutes, and ordinances, and were expected to keep and obey them.

Iniquity is lawlessness.
Iniquities, Rom 4:7-8 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities (lawless deeds) are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom YAHUWAH will not impute sin. Iniquity, YAHUWSHUWA says in Mat 7:23, And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (lawlessness). YAHUWSHUWA says in, Mat 13:41, The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity (lawlessness); YAHUWSHUWA says in Mat 23:28, Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity (lawlessness). YAHUWSHUWA also says in Mat 24:12, 'And because iniquity (lawlessness) shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. Tit 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity (lawlessness),
13

and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of great works. Heb 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity (lawlessness); therefore Aluah, even thy Aluah, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. This is talking about YAHUWSHUWA, He hates all lawlessness. In all of these places the word iniquities or iniquity is Gre. # 458. , anomia, an-om-ee'ah From G459; illegality, that is, violation of law or (generally) wickedness: - iniquity, X transgress (-ion of) the law, unrighteousness. So basically wherever you read the word iniquities or iniquity, it is talking about lawlessness. Ha satan has bound so many souls with his lies and deceits and continues to do so. Ha satan is a master deceiver who wants to overthrow our belief in the truth any chance he gets. Ha satan is very real, he is the enemy of our soul and of all righteousness. He is at the beginning of every evil work. YAHUWSHUWA says in Jon 8:44, Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. Ha satan wants to be ruler of the world, he want us to worship him as though he is Aluah. If we don't obey YAHUWAH in all righteousness the best we can with all our heart, then we are obeying or yielding to ha satan and his evil ways. For there is no righteousness apart from YAHUWAH. We need to make sure that we obey YAHUWAH and search the Scriptures for our self, so that we can find the answers to anybody's questions and to find the truth of every matter. We don't need to worry about being different (peculiar, special) from other people, because we as YAHUWAH'S people are called to be. Look at, Exo 19:5, Deu 14:2, 26:18, Psa 135:4, Tit 2:14, and 1 Pe 2:9. We are to be a peculiar treasure unto YAHUWAH, above all people or nations that are upon the earth. We should keep all of YAHUWAH'S commandments, and be zealous of great works, called out of darkness into YAHUWSHUWA'S marvelous light. YAHUWAH wants all people to worship Him, become like His people and not a separate people. The Gentiles (heathen, nations) were required to believe like YAHUWAH'S people. They were not to be a separate people but were to be as YAHUWAH'S own set-apart people along with the Hebrews, and the Hebrews were to treat them as one of their own. Num 15:14 And if a stranger (Gentile) sojourn with you, or whosoever be among you in your generations, and will offer an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto YAHUWAH; as ye do, so he shall do. There was no difference between the people that were born in the land Israel and the people that migrated to the land Israel, if they believed in YAHUWAH they were to be united together as one whole people, and not two separate people. Isa 66:22-23 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I shall make, shall remain before me, saith YAHUWAH, so shall your seed and your name remain. And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith YAHWAH. Jer 4:1-2 If thou wilt return, O Israel, saith YAHUWAH, return unto me: and if thou wilt put away thine abominations out of my sight, then shalt thou not remove. And thou shalt swear, YAHUWAH liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; and the nations shall bless themselves in him, and in him shall they praise. Mal 1:11 For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name,
14

and a pure offering: for my name shall be great among the heathen (nations), saith YAHUWAH of host. Rom 3:9 What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; Rom 3:29 Is he the Aluah of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: Rom 9:24 Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? Rom 14:11-12 For it is written, As I live, saith YAHUWAH, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to Aluah. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to YAHUWAH. Gal 3:29 And if ye be Mashyach's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. So not just the Jews, as everybody calls them, are required to keep the law but also the Gentiles. Everybody of every tongue and of every nation, doesn't matter who you are, you are required of by YAHUWAH to keep His set apart law. Ecc 12:13 says, Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear Aluah, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. Notice it says man not Jews, Hebrews or the Israelite but simply states man. Exo 12:49 One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you. Lev 24:22 Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am YAHUWAH your Aluah. Num 15:15-16 One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourneth with you, an ordinance forever in your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger be before YAHUWAH. One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you. Jer 12:14-17 Thus saith YAHUWAH against all mine evil neighbors, that touch the inheritance which I have caused my people Israel to inherit; Behold, I will pluck them out of their land, and pluck out the house of Judah from among them. And it shall come to pass, after that I have plucked them out I will return, and have compassion on them, and will bring them again, every man to his heritage, and every man to his land. And it shall come to pass, if they will diligently learn the ways of my people, to swear by my name, YAHUWAH liveth; as they taught my people to swear by Baal (Lord); then shall they be built in the midst of my people. But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith YAHUWAH. Jer 16:19 O YAHUWAH, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles (nations) shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit. 1 Co 12:13 For by one Ruach (Spirit) are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Ruach (Spirit). So, strangers (Gentiles, nations, etc.) are supposed to be like His people. An ordinance (statute, law) forever in our generations as YAHUWAH'S people are so shall the stranger (Gentile) be before Him, one law and one manner shall be for His people (the homeborn) and for the stranger (Gentile) which will end up being some of His people. Every knee shall bow to YAHUWAH and every tongue confess, so then every one of us shall give account of
15

himself to Aluah. YAHUWAH says, that He is going to pluck out all His evil neighbors, but after He has plucked them out He will have compassion on them, if they will diligently learn the ways of His people, to swear by His name, then as YAHUWAH lives, as they taught His people to swear by Lord (Baal), then they will be built in the midst of His people but if they don't obey, YAHUWAH will destroy that nation or as an individual that person. We need to diligently learn the ways of YAHUWAH'S people so we can be built in their midst. We need to realize that we have inherited lies, worthlessness, and things wherein there is no profit. Anybody and everybody, it doesn't matter who we are or where we are from, we need to repent, turn to YAHUWAH and do works meet for repentance. We as human beings are all under sin, whether we be Jews or Gentiles or whatever else we might consider ourselves. As YAHUWAH says, from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith YAHWAH. We as YAHUWAH'S people whether a Hebrew (Jew), Stranger (Gentile) or whatever we consider ourselves, if we believe in YAHUWAH and His son YAHUWSHUWA then we are partakers of the same body (Eph 3:6). Rom 12:1-17 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of Aluah, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, set apart, acceptable unto Aluah, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that great, and acceptable, and perfect, will of Aluah. For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as Aluah hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: So we, being many, are one body in Mashyach, and every one members one of another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that showeth mercy, with cheerfulness. Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is right. Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another; Not slothful in business; fervent in ruach (spirit); serving YAHUWAH; Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. With YAHUWAH there is not division. Col 3:11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Mashyach is all, and in all. Gal 3:28, There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Mashyach YAHUWSHUWA. We as YAHUWAH'S people are not to be divided but are to be as one. Act 2:44-45 And all that believed were together, and had all things common; And sold their possessions and valuables, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. Act 4:32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that aught of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common. Here are some places that talk about divisions among YAHUWAH'S people.
16

In Luk 12:52 YAHUWSHUWA says, For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. In Luk YAHUWSHUWA says, 12:53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 1 Co 3:3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men? 1 Co 1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Savior YAHUWSHUWA Mashyach, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. Co 11:18 For first of all, when ye come together in the congregation, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it. 1 Co 1:12-13 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Mashyach. Is Mashyach divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? So we are not to be divided, but are to be bonded together by our love for YAHUWAH, YAHUWSHUWA and one another, in the same mind and in the same judgment, so that when people look at us they know that we all are YAHUWAH'S people, and partakers of the same body. Joh 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. Psa 133:1 A Song of degrees of David. Behold, how great and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! We as brothers and sisters in faith, ruach (spirit) and truth, need to dwell together in unity. Being a watchman for one another, and leading one another unto great works. Rom 15:1 We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. But we do need to please YAHUWAH and to do that we need to keep YAHUWAH'S every commandment, live our lives according to His word and walk in YAHUWSHUWA'S steps. So that we can be found blameless unto the coming of our Savior YAHUWSHUWA Mashyach. Here are some verses that have to do with keeping all of YAHUWAH'S commandments. Deu 6:24-25 And YAHUWAH commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear YAHUWAH our Aluah, for our well being always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day. And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before YAHUWAH our Aluah, as he hath commanded us. Deu 10:12-13 And now, Israel, what doth YAHUWAH thy Aluah require of thee, but to fear YAHUWAH thy Aluah, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve YAHUWAH thy Aluah with all thy heart and with all thy soul, To keep the commandments of YAHUWAH, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy well being? Deu 11:1 Therefore thou shalt love YAHUWAH thy Aluah, and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, always. So, what does YAHUWAH require of us? But to fear Him, for our own well being forever and always, so He will keep us alive, and it will be our righteousness, if we observe and keep all of YAHUWAH'S commandments, statutes and His judgements, and walk in all His ways, to love and serve Him with all our heart and with all our soul, always and forever.

THE TEN
Please follow me as I take you through Exo 20:1-17, and study the Ten Commandments, in two segments. Segment 1, Exo 20:1-11. And Aluah spoke all these words, saying, I am YAHUWAH thy Aluah, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other aluahym before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I YAHUWAH thy Aluah am a jealous Aluah, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. Thou shalt not take the name of YAHUWAH thy Aluah in vain; for YAHUWAH will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it set apart. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the Sabbath of YAHUWAH thy Aluah: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days YAHUWAH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore YAHUWAH blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it. In this first segment Exo 20:1-11, YAHUWAH shows you the way to love and treat Him and the way to keep and treat His Sabbath. If we love YAHUWAH we won't worship, make images of, serve, nor bow down to false aluahym, such as Baal (Lord), God (Gad). If we love Him we will keep His commandments, and in return He will show us mercy. If we love Him we won't take His name in vain, such as not calling Him by His true name and using other false names in its place, misusing it, blaspheming it, thinking too little of it. If we do take His name in vain YAHUWAH will charge us with iniquity. So then, how exactly do we love YAHUWAH? YAHUWSHUWA teaches us how to love YAHUWAH in Mat 22:37 by saying, Thou shalt love YAHUWAH thy Aluah with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. So we are to love YAHUWAH with all our being and with everything we have. This is the first and greatest of the commandments, because if we keep this one to its fullest extent and truly love YAHUWAH with everything that is within us, then we will keep all of His commandments from the least even unto the greatest. Notice that YAHUWAH tells us to remember the Sabbath, keep it set apart, don't do any work on the Sabbath, us nor any of our family nor anybody who works for us nor a stranger that comes on our land not even our animals, but all creation is to take a Sabbath rest. Six days we are to work but on the seventh day we are to rest, just as YAHUWAH made all creation in six days but on the seventh day He set an example and rested. So YAHUWAH blessed the seventh day and hallowed it, because in it He rested from all the work which He had done and made. We need to love YAHUWAH with all are being so that we can keep His commandments, and in return receive eternal blessings. Don't blasphemy the name of YAHUWAH, because YAHUWAH says in Lev 24:16 And he that blasphemeth the name of YAHUWAH, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of YAHUWAH, shall be put to death. People who blasphemy the name of YAHUWAH are trespassing on very dangerous ground. If anybody blasphemies the name of YAHUWAH they will do it to their own dismay
18

and destruction. Segment 2, Exo 20:12-17 Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which YAHUWAH thy Aluah giveth thee. Thou shalt not kill. Thou shalt not commit adultery. Thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor's. In this second segment, Exo 20:12-17, YAHUWAH shows us the way to love and treat other people. Like honoring our father and mother, if we do that YAHUWAH will prolong our days. Not to kill, steal, commit adultery, covet, nor bear a false witness against our fellow man. So then how exactly do we love our fellow man? Well YAHUWSHUWA teaches us how to love our fellow man by saying in Mat 22:39 Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. Eph 5:29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as YAHUWSHUWA the congregation: Some people might say, who is our neighbor? Well YAHUWSHUWA teaches us that in Luk 10:29-37 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto YAHUWSHUWA, And who is my neighbor? And YAHUWSHUWA answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbor unto him that fell among the thieves? And he said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said YAHUWSHUWA unto him, Go, and do thou likewise. So anybody is considered to be our neighbor even the people who live on the other side of the earth, so long as they aren't evil, wicked, or sick and twisted in their hearts and minds. Here are some verses that tell us what kind of people not to associate with. 1 Co 5:1-11 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife. And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. For I verily, as absent in body, but present in ruach (spirit), have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed. In the name of our Savior YAHUWSHUWA Mashyach, when ye are gathered together, and my ruach (spirit), with the power of our Savior YAHUWSHUWA Mashyach, To deliver such a one unto ha satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the ruach (spirit) may be saved in the day of our Savior YAHUWSHUWA. Your boasting is not right. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Mashyach our passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice (naughtiness) and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth (Here Paul is paraphrasing, basically saying
19

that we need to cleanse [separate] ourselves from all wicked people). I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: Yet not altogether the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world (Here Paul is saying we can't keep away from these kind of people completely, because to do that we would have to basically die, [but we need too definitely stay away from the ones who say they believe and still do these evil works]). But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator (adulterer), or covetous (greedy), or an idolater (Idol worshiper), or a railer (mocker), or a drunkard, or an extortioner (one who abuses another to get what they want); with such a one no not to eat. So we need to treat our neighbors who are across the world with justice, but we are not to keep company with a fornicator (adulterer), or covetous (greedy), or an idolater (Idol worshiper), or a railer (mocker), or a drunkard, or an extortioner (one who abuses another to get what they want), or wicked people generally. FEASTS People say that the Sabbath, New Moon, Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits, Pentecost, Trumpets, Day of Atonement, Tabernacles etc... are for the Jews or the feast of the Jews, when YAHUWAH plainly states that they are His (the feasts of YAHUWAH). Take a look at Lev 23, this is one of the chapters that explains the feasts. Verse 1-2 says, And YAHUWAH spoke unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of YAHUWAH, which ye shall proclaim to be set apart convocations, even these are my feasts. Notice is says, concerning the feasts of YAHUWAH, and even these are my feasts. YAHUWAH is clearly stating that they are His feasts. Also look at verse 4 These are the feasts of YAHUWAH, even set apart convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons. Verse 44 And Moses declared unto the children of Israel the feasts of YAHUWAH. So you can clearly see that they are not the feast of the Jews but of YAHUWAH. We are required by YAHUWAH to keep them in their seasons as an everlasting statute, everlasting covenant, ordinance forever, statute forever, and they are established forever throughout our generations. That is what YAHUWAH who cannot lie (Heb 6:18) has said about, the Sabbath, New Moon, Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits, Pentecost, Trumpets, Day of Atonement, Tabernacles etc... Also remember, YAHUWAH does not change, Mal 3:6 For I am YAHUWAH, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. So very clearly YAHUWAH, who does not change and cannot lie, has commanded us to keep these set apart times in their seasons. Lev 23 tells you about YAHUWAH'S feast, there are also many other places in the Scriptures where you can find information on the feast. We are supposed to also keep the new moon. Psa 81:3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day. In Col 2:16 a writing of Paul, people try to twist it to make it say something it isn't, as Peter says in 2 Pe 3:15-17 And account that the longsuffering of our Savior is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest (twist), as they do also the other Scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness. The unlearned (ignorant) and
20

unstable (wavering) wrest (twist, pervert) and give meanings to the Scriptures that were never meant and they do it to their own destruction. This should be a warning to all in our day who twist (pervert) the Scriptures from their real meaning. It is truly a sad thing when people mess with YAHUWAH'S words and when they do it they don't just mess up their lives but many others as well. They make a lot of work for people who want to know the truth and teach it to others, because they have indoctrinated so many with their false teachings and lies, which they have drilled so deep into other peoples hearts and minds. So let us look at this verse with a pure heart not trying to twist or distort it. Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a set apart day, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days: What Paul is saying here is don't let people judge you or pronounce you guilty for eating clean foods and drinks, nor for keeping a set apart day such as a feast, nor for keeping the new moon or Sabbath. No matter what people might say or do against us for keeping YAHUWAH'S commandments, we don't need to let it bother us. Because a lot of people will revile you if you don't eat unclean foods and if you keep the Sabbath, a lot of them will accuse you of Judaizing, but it doesn't matter what they say against us, we need to keep our focus where it belongs and that is on YAHUWAH and His word.

Sabbath
Since so many people have such a hard time with the Sabbath, claiming it is just for the Jews, it was changed to sunday or it was done away with, we will do a special study on the Sabbath to prove whether those sayings are true or false. First let us see who the Sabbath is for. Look at, Mar 2:27 And He (YAHUWSHUWA) said unto them, The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath: So here we can see that YAHUWSHUWA is telling us that the Sabbath is for man plural, not just the Jews, but mankind as a whole. Exo 20:10 But the seventh day is the Sabbath of YAHUWAH thy Aluah: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: Isa 56:1-7 Thus saith YAHUWAH, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed. Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the Sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil. Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to YAHUWAH, speak, saying, YAHUWAH hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree. For thus saith YAHUWAH unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant; Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off. Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to YAHUWAH, to serve him, and to love the name of YAHUWAH, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the Sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; Even them will I bring to my set apart mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called a house of prayer for all people. Isa 66:22-23 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I shall make, shall remain before me, saith YAHUWAH, so shall your seed and your name remain. And it shall come to
21

pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith YAHWAH. All creation is called to observe the Sabbath. YAHUWAH is looking out for His creation, He cares about our well being. Some places in the Scriptures where the word rest (rested) is, if you look it up in the Strong's, actually means Sabbath. We will look at some places where rest is supposed to be Sabbath. YAHUWAH led by example He rested on the Sabbath. Gen 2:2-3 And on the seventh day Aluah ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And Aluah blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which Aluah created and made. Here we can see that from the beginning YAHUWAH blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it because in it He kept the Sabbath and rested. Clearly and plainly YAHUWAH'S Sabbath has been instated since the very beginning. Praise YAHUWAH! Notice it says the seventh day not the first day. The seventh day is the Sabbath and that has not changed nor ever will change because YAHUWAH cannot lie (Heb 6:18), and also does not change. Mal 3:6 For I am YAHUWAH, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Therefore it is impossible for the Sabbath to have been changed to sunday. YAHUWAH is not fickled, inconstant, inconsistent, or unstable in His ways, but He is the same yesterday, today, tomorrow, and forever, we can be sure of that. YAHUWAH does not make it hard for us to listen to Him, we make it hard for ourselves by getting mixed up in all these false teachings and doctrines, when all we have to do is look at the Scriptures and let them speak for themselves. But as we look at the Scriptures we need to have an open heart that is ready to listen, and make necessary changes to the way we live our lives. Jer 16:19 O YAHUWAH, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles (nations) shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit. People need to understand just how true this verse is, so many people have inherited lies from their fathers who inherited the lies from their fathers and so on. The need is to come to YAHUWAH and admit our sins, and that we and our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit, also we need to not live in those things, which have caused us to sin, any longer. Exo 5:1-5 And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus saith YAHUWAH Aluah of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness. And Pharaoh said, Who is YAHUWAH, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not YAHUWAH, neither will I let Israel go. And they said, The Aluah of the Hebrews hath met with us: let us go, we pray thee, three days' journey into the desert, and sacrifice unto YAHUWAH our Aluah; lest he fall upon us with pestilence, or with the sword. And the king of Egypt said unto them, Wherefore do ye, Moses and Aaron, let the people from their works? get you unto your burdens. And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now are many, and ye make them (to keep Sabbath and) rest from their burdens. Here Moses and Aaron, in verse four, are asked by Pharaoh why did they let the people (rest) from their works. In verse five the word rest if you look it up it is Heb. # 7673. shabath (Sabbath). Pharaoh states that Moses and Aaron made the people take a Sabbath rest from their burdens. This also shows you that the Sabbath was instated before Sinai.
22

Exo 16:30 So the people (kept the Sabbath and) rested on the seventh day. Here we see that the people kept the Sabbath rest on the seventh day. Exo 23:12 Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the seventh day thou shalt (keep the Sabbath) rest: that thine ox and thine ass may rest, and the son of thy handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed. Here it tells us six days to work but on the seventh day we are to take a Sabbath rest us and all creation. This word rest is still Heb. # 7673. Exo 31:17 It is a sign between me and the children of Israel forever: for in six days YAHUWAH made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed. Here you can plainly see again that keeping the Sabbath was a command from creation. It is a sign between YAHUWAH and His people forever. YAHUWAH made heaven and earth in six days but on the seventh day He kept the Sabbath and rested. The fourth commandment begins with Remember that indicates that the Sabbath existed before Sinai. Exo 20:8 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it set apart. This also backs up the fact that the Sabbath has been instated since the beginning of time. Exo 34:21 Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest: in earing time and in harvest thou shalt (keep the Sabbath) rest. Here it is telling us to keep the Sabbath even in our most busy times (plowing time and harvest). YAHUWSHUWA'S followers kept the Sabbath. Luk 23:56 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the Sabbath day according to the commandment. Mary Magdalene and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them. Here are some verses about Paul and the Sabbath. Act 13:42 And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next Sabbath, by Paul and Barnabas. Then in Act 13:44 And the next Sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of Aluah. See also Act 17:2 And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three Sabbath days reasoned with them out of the Scriptures. and in Act 18:4 And he (Paul) reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks. So we see that Paul taught on the sabbaths. Also he teaches us about the Sabbath if you look in Heb 4:1-11. Verse 4 is a quote from Gen 2:2 which if you look up the word rest it is Heb. # 7673. Sabbath. Also in verse 9 the word rest if you look it up is Gre. # 4520. sabbatism (Sabbath). So, if you read this passage Heb 4:1-11 realizing that it is talking about the Sabbath, put Sabbath in verse four instead of rest and especially in verse nine instead of rest, you can clearly see that it is plainly telling us to keep the Sabbath and to enter into the Sabbath rest. Take a look now at Heb 4:1-11 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the glad tidings preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And Aluah did rest the seventh day from all his works.(this is the quote from Gen 2:2) And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, Today, after so long a time; as it is said, Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. For if Joshua had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.
23

There remaineth therefore a rest (this is Gre. #4520) to the people of Aluah. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as Aluah did from his. Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. So, it is saying the promise still remains with us, if we keep the Sabbath with care, not doing our own pleasure on YAHUWAH'S set apart day; and call the Sabbath a delight, the set apart of YAHUWAH, honorable; and shalt honor Him, not doing our own ways, nor finding our own pleasure, nor speaking our own words: Then we will delight ourselves in YAHUWAH; and He will cause us to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed us with the heritage of Jacob our father: for YAHUWAH'S mouth hath spoken it. (Isa 58:13-14). So let us fear and have a reverential awe (respect) for the Sabbath lest we come up short of the promise to those who keep the Sabbath. For the news of the Sabbath is brought to us who live in these present days, as well as it was to the Israelites of old but it did not profit them because they did not believe the truth they heard. For we who believe today do enter into the Sabbath rest, in accordance with YAHUWAH'S declaration that those who did not believe should not enter when He said, as I swore in my wrath, they shall not enter into My rest; this He said even though His works had already come into being since the foundation of the world. In the beginning Aluah kept the Sabbath on the seventh day, and rested from all His works. The promise still remains for us to enter into the Sabbath rest, for those who formerly received the news of the Sabbath rest did not enter in because they were disobedient. Today if we hear His voice (commands) we should not harden our hearts. This rest is not a reference to when YAHUWAH said He would give them rest from all their troubles in the land of Canaan. For if Joshua could have given them this Sabbath rest YAHUWAH would not speak afterward about a different rest. So there remains a Sabbath keeping for the people of Aluah for if we enter into YAHUWAH'S Sabbath rest, we have also ourselves rested from our works, just as Aluah was leading us by example and rested from His own works on the seventh day. Let us do our utmost to enter into YAHUWAH'S Sabbath rest, lest we fall after the same example of disobedience. Lev 19:29-32 Do not prostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore; lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness. Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am YAHUWAH. Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am YAHUWAH your Aluah. Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honor the face of the old man, and fear thy Aluah: I am YAHUWAH. These verses instruct us on a variety of issues (1) Not to give our children as prostitutes (2) To keep the Sabbath and reverence the sanctuary (3) To keep away from mediums and spiritists (4) To honor the elderly. If we ask a preacher if we should obey the commandment which tells us not to give our children as prostitutes, he would most likely say yes. If we ask him if we should obey the commandment which tells us to avoid mediums and spiritists, he most likely would say yes. If we ask him if we should obey the commandment to honor the elderly, he would most likely say yes. But if we ask him if we should obey the commandment to keep the Sabbath, we most likely would not end up with the same results, he might say no, the Sabbath is only for the Jews, it was changed, or we are no longer under the law. They make sad excuses to try to make what they have been teaching right, but they do it in vain. Instead, they should live up to it, admit they are wrong, change according to whats right, true, and just. Luk 6:6-11 And it came to pass also on another Sabbath, that he (YAHUWSHUWA) entered
24

into the synagogue and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was withered. And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the Sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him. But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth. Then said YAHUWSHUWA unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the Sabbath days to do well, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it? And looking round about upon them all, he said unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the other. And they were filled with madness; and communed one with another what they might do to YAHUWSHUWA. The Sabbath was meant to give much needed rest and refreshing to YAHUWAH'S people and creation, period, and what better time to heal His people than on this blessed set apart day, which in and of itself is a day of healing. It is lawful to do miracles on the Sabbath. Mat 12:11-12 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the Sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the Sabbath days. YAHUWAH is for life not death. Eze 18:31-32 Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit (ruach): for why will ye die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith YAHUWAH Aluah: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye. Eze 33:11 Say unto them, As I live, saith YAHUWAH Aluah, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel? In Matt 12:1-8 & Mar 2:23-28, the disciples were not violating the torah (law) by plucking grain to eat but their actions were prohibited according to the pharisees traditions. The pharisees were so caught up in their own man made traditions and customs that they became more concerned with their own rules than with YAHUWAH'S laws or commands. Also YAHUWSHUWA by calling Himself master of the Sabbath was showing the pharisees that He is the one who determines what is proper and improper to do on the Sabbath. The pharisees had ridiculous things they commanded the people to do. They even had a particular way to wash before they ate their food and if an individual didn't wash in that way they were considered a law breaker. The scribes and pharisees asked YAHUWSHUWA in Matt 15:2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of Aluah by your tradition? Mar 7:2-5 And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault. For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders. And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brazen vessels, and of tables. Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands? So you can see that the scribes and pharisees kept the traditions of men not the COMMANDMENTS OF ALUAH. YAHUWSHUWA not keeping the traditions of men was considered to them a law breaker which is erroneous, incorrect, false, and wrong, the pharisees were the ones breaking YAHUWAH'S law with their traditions. In Matt 15:1-9, 23:1-36, & Mar 7:1-13, YAHUWSHUWA teaches on the scribes, pharisees,
25

and their traditions. He tells us not to do after their works: for they say, and do not. For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. The scribes and pharisees did all their works to be seen of men which YAHUWSHUWA warns us about (Matt 6:1-6). The pharisees loved to be exalted, and called Rabbi or master, they wanted the best of everything. But we are not supposed to be called master for our Master is Mashyach. He that is greatest among us is supposed to be as a servant. If we exalt ourselves we will be abased; if we humble ourselves we will be exalted. YAHUWSHUWA said, woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: neither go in yourselves, neither do you allow them that are entering to go in. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a show make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one convert, and afterward, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, it is okay to do all these abominable things and more, when it is not. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. What YAHUWSHUWA was showing here by saying, ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel, is they couldn't keep the simple commandments of YAHUWAH, but they kept the outrageous, burdensome traditions of men. YAHUWSHUWA said,Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. YAHUWSHUWA is showing here that the pharisees, made for sure that their physical body was clean, so they appeared righteous outwardly but not in their ruach (spiritually), for in their ruach (spirit) they were full of hypocrisy and iniquity. So He tells them, you blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within (their ruach [spirit]) the cup and platter, that the outside of them (their physical body) may be clean. Ye draw near to YAHUWAH with your lips but your heart is far from Him (They talked the talk but didn't walk the walk). But in vain ye do worship YAHUWAH, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of Aluah, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. And he said unto them, Ye happily reject the commandment of Aluah, that ye may keep your own tradition. Making the word of Alauh of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye. Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? So as you can see the pharisees, like so many people today, had their focus off of what was right, true, and just. They were way out of balance, they kept the traditions of mortal man, rather then the commandments of YAHUWAH our everlasting Aluah, just like so many people living in this present time. They exalt mortal man and his traditions above our everlasting Aluah YAHUWAH, which is so wrong and twisted. YAHUWSHUWA did many things against the man made laws of the pharisees to show the people that they held the outrageous, burdensome teachings of men, and forgot the simple commandments of YAHUWAH. The pharisees were so caught up in the traditions and laws of mortal man that they forgot what they really needed to be focused on, the commandments and laws of YAHUWAH our everlasting Aluah. YAHUWSHUWA was not breaking any of YAHUWAH'S commandments but the traditions of
26

the scribes and pharisees. Remember YAHUWSHUWA was PERFECT in everything He did, He was without sin, and sin is the transgression of the law, which YAHUWSHUWA never transgressed. Let us look at some places in the Scriptures where YAHUWAH says that the Sabbath is a sign between Him and His people. Exo 31:12-17 And YAHUWAH spoke unto Moses, saying, Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am YAHUWAH that doth sanctify you. Ye shall keep the Sabbath therefore; for it is set apart unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, set apart to YAHUWAH: whosoever doeth any work in the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between me and the children of Israel forever: for in six days YAHUWAH made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed. Eze 20:12 Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am YAHUWAH that sanctify them.: Eze 20:20 And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am YAHUWAH your Aluah. The Sabbath is a sign between YAHUWAH and His people. The word for sign in Heb. Is ' oth, evidence, mark, sign, token. It is the same word that was used to describe the rainbow as a sign of the covenant made with all creation never to flood the whole earth again, which He has kept and is still keeping, just like the sign of the Sabbath, because YAHUWAH who cannot lie said forever. The Sabbath was given as a sign forever between YAHUWAH and His people. So if you are truly His you will keep the Sabbath from polluting it.

BLESSINGS FOR OBEDIENCE TO YAHUWAH'S COMMANDMENTS


Deu 28:1-14 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of YAHUWAH thy Aluah, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that YAHUWAH thy Aluah will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of YAHUWAH thy Aluah. Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out. YAHUWAH shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways. YAHUWAH shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which YAHUWAH thy Alauh giveth thee. YAHUWAH shall establish thee a set apart people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of YAHUWAH thy Aluah, and walk in his ways. And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of YAHUWAH; and they shall be afraid of thee. And YAHUWAH shall make thee plenteous in valuables, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of
27

thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which YAHUWAH swore unto thy fathers to give thee. YAHUWAH shall open unto thee his precious treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow. And YAHUWAH shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of YAHUWAH thy Aluah, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them: And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other aluahym to serve them. CURSINGS FOR DISOBEDIENCE TO YAHUWAH'S COMMANDMENTS Deu 28:15-68 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of YAHUWAH thy Aluah, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee: Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field. Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store. Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out. YAHUWAH shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me. YAHUWAH shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it. YAHUWAH shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish. And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron. YAHUWAH shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed. YAHUWAH shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth. And thy carcass shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall frighten them away. YAHUWAH will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed. YAHUWAH shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart: And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee. Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build a house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof. Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue them. Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long: and there shall be no might in thine hand. The fruit of thy land, and all thy labors, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed always: So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see. YAHUWAH shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the
28

sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head. YAHUWAH shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other aluahym, wood and stone. And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither YAHUWAH shall lead thee. Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather but little in; for the locust shall consume it. Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress them, but shalt neither drink of the wine, nor gather the grapes; for the worms shall eat them. Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but thou shalt not anoint thyself with the oil; for thine olive shall cast his fruit. Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity. All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume. The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail. Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of YAHUWAH thy Aluah, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee: And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed forever. Because thou servedst not YAHUWAH thy Aluah with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things; Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which YAHUWAH shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee. YAHUWAH shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand; A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor show favor to the young: And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee. And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which YAHUWAH thy Aluah hath given thee. And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which YAHUWAH thy Aluah hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee: So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave: So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left him in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates. The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her daughter, And toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitness, wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates. If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this esteemed and fearful name, YAHUWAH THY ALUAH; Then YAHUWAH will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance. Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee. Also every sickness, and every plague,
29

which is not written in the book of this law, them will YAHUWAH bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed. And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey the voice of YAHUWAH thy Aluah. And it shall come to pass, that as YAHUWAH rejoiced over you to do you well, and to multiply you; so YAHUWAH will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to naught; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it. And YAHUWAH shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other aluahym, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone. And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but YAHUWAH shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind: And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life: In the morning thou shalt say, Would Aluah it were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would Aluah it were morning! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see. And YAHUWAH shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spoke unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you. So we see that YAHUWAH said that He would bestow upon the people blessings in abundance if they kept His commandments, but they were stubborn and rebellious against YAHUWAH'S commandments and in return for their disobedience they reaped all the cursings YAHUWAH promised them for disobeying. Ha satan is very real he is the enemy of our soul and of all righteousness. In Jon 10:10 which is the parable of the tob (good) shepherd, ha satan is pictured as a thief who cometh not, but to steal, to kill, and to destroy. That is exactly what he has been doing to the law, he is trying to steal it away from the Scriptures, to kill it out of our hearts and minds, and trying to destroy it completely with his false doctrines and lies. Because ha satan wants us to worship him as though he is most high, he has and will continue to try to make people worship him rather than the Creator. Jer. 17:9 says, The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? Ha satan has deceived many people into believing lies that are desperately wicked. Our Saviour says in, John. 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. Ha satan, the devil, does seek to overthrow your belief in the truth, he wants you to believe a lie, and he wants to be worshiped as though he is Aluah. If we say the commandments (law) are done away with, then we are calling YAHUWAH a liar and He cannot lie, YAHUWSHUWA a disobedient sinner, in who no sin is found. We are falsely accusing people who are righteous law (torah) observing believers in YAHUWSHUWA, to be unrighteous, lawless, unbelievers who we ourselves are, if we believe in such lies, as in the law being done away with. If we believe such lies then we are yielding to ha satan and his evil scheme. We need to be a T.O.B.Y. = Torah (law) Observing Believer in YAHUWSHUWA. PRAISE YAHUWAH!!! Obedience is the very best way to show that we believe, doing exactly as YAHUWAH commands, doing it happily, action is the key do it immediately and joy we will receive. Remember this 2 Ti 3:16-17 All Scripture is given by inspiration of Aluah, and is profitable
30

for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of Aluah may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all great works. It is saying all scripture from Genesis to Revelation and not just a certain part of the Scriptures in particular, is useful to us for guidance in our everyday life. The law is still standing today and forever. PRAISE YAHUWAH!!! Deu 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
