Is Yeshua (Jesus) Your Matzo or Playboy Bunny?


Do you use “Mazto” or “Bunnies and Eggs” to symbolize Yeshua‘s death and resurrection?

Matzo is pierced, striped, and unleavened just like Yeshua was pierced with a spear, striped by the Romans, and unleavened without sin.

Bunnies and eggs symbolize having lots of sex and being very fertile.

As for me and my household we keep the feast of unleavened bread and cast out all leavening from our home to symbolize Yeshua‘s death and resurrection. This is the time of our deliverance. Our leavening (sin) has been done away with because of the perfect Pesach lamb. It is the reason why we keep passover, to remember what has been done for us by Yeshua. Dayenu!!! Passover symbolism is so powerful because it shares the truth.

Let us not forget that Yeshua was the perfect passover lamb. Yeshua was far from being a easter ham. Would you call Yeshua (Jesus) a pig? If so why do you eat Easter Ham? You really call Yeshua (Jesus) a pig when you eat Easter Ham.

The bunnies and eggs are pagan in nature and have no spiritual meaning whatsoever! Please keep this in mind during the days ahead. Some of you keep the feast of unleavened bread, some of you do not. Either way I ask you all to keep this in mind as you go through your Pesach or Easter celebrations, regardless of you keep the biblical Pesach or pagan theme Easter.

Most importantly to all of my readers and friends who keep Pesach (Passover) I wish you all a “chag sameach!”!

Matzo is pierced, striped, and unleavened. Just like Yeshua was pierced, striped, and unleavend without sin!

Matzo is pierced, striped, and unleavened. Just like Yeshua was pierced, striped, and unleavend without sin!

Remember Lot’s Wife


The end of days/end times is a subject that causes much division. The division is not because of the truth of the word. The division is because of the sin of the people. This study is titled “Remember Lot’s Wife” because that is the message that has been placed on my heart to share. This study is a bit long but it is one of the most important messages that I have shared with you all. It is worth the time to read. I urge you the reader to take the time to read this all of the way through, even if you have to read it in piecemeal.

Many will hate me for speaking this truth. That is part of the division I mentioned earlier. The thought of a pre-trib rapture comes from the sinful nature of human beings. It comes from arrogance and a desire to seek pleasure/comfort. There is one thing I wish to share with you all before I share my study with you. That is this: We are nothing more than a soul with a body. The key to peace (Shalom) is found when you can accept that you are soul with a body, whose purpose is to serve and worship YHWH the Elohim of Israel and give glory to and receive grace through Yeshua HaMashiach!

This is so true! The problem is what do people value and hold sacred. Are you a warrior for wickedness of a warrior for Elohim?

Most people do not realize that there will be a seven year recovery period after the tribulation is over. That is because most christian based prophecy scholars preach that “the battle of Gog and Magog” as recorded in Ezekiel 38-39 happens shortly before the tribulation. As you will learn from this study the battle of Gog and Magog is the same event as the battle popularly known as Armageddon. Even though Armageddon is the place of the battle not the name of the battle. Some people believe Matthew 24 speaks of the events leading up to the tribulation but this study will thoroughly prove that it is speaking of the tribulation. Those people who believe it is leading up to the tribulation are the ones that believe Gog and Magog will occur before the tribulation begins. After the battle of Gog and Magog in Eze 38-39 it is recorded that there will be a seven year recovery. 



Most teach that the seven year recovery period is the tribulation. That is a false belief. In Matthew 24 the beginning of the tribulation is recorded as starting with a war or other major event that will level the temple mount. It could be a earthquake or any number of other possibilities. I personally believe it is a war that will involve nukes but that may not be the case. It might just be a middle east war against Israel with or without nukes. It could also be a nuclear or other major terrorist attack in Jerusalem. The possibilities are endless in how it could play out. However the temple mount being leveled is the event that starts the tribulation not a seven year peace treaty. A peace treaty must occur near the beginning of the tribulation after the temple mount is leveled. The rider of the white horse (The 1st Horseman of the Apocalypse) will help bring in that false peace treaty. It will be a false peace without a doubt. Any peace that is achieved will not last long. The war is long and will last the full length of the tribulation, more clandestine once a false peace treaty has been made. However the war will not be over, until the final battle at Armageddon when Gog and Magog are defeated.

Matthew 24:2 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 2 And He said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Truly I say to you, not one stone here will be left upon another, which will not be torn down.”

Matthew 24:2
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
2 And He said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Truly I say to you, not one stone here will be left upon another, which will not be torn down.”

Here is a quick break down of key points in Ezekiel 38-39. (I encourage you to sit down and read the full chapters and passages I give and pray about these things. I don’t ask you to take my word on it but to let the kadosh holy spirit guide you.)

Eze 38:1-5 speaks of an alliance between Gog and Magog with Persia, Kush (Ethiopia), and Put (Libya). Gog and Magog is modern day Russia while Persia is modern day Iran. Currently Russia and Iran have a political and economic alliance. Never before in history has this occurred. Libya being mostly muslim would easily side with Iran. Ethiopia will join up offically with this alliance later on. We do know for sure that Libyan and Ethiopian Islamic rebels have flocked to Syria to help with the Syrian Rebellion, in alliance with Persia. The stage has been set with these political dealings among many others including the re-founding of Israel as a nation in 1948.

Eze 38:10-12 tells us that the cities and full nation of Israel must be without walls for the battle of Gog and Magog to happen. The nation of Israel must be living in peace, which must happen some time during the great tribulation, after the false peace is reigning. The idea that it happens before the peace treaty is in complete contradiction to what Eze 38:10-12 describes. It must happen after the temple mount is leveled (the start of the tribulation as recorded in Matt 24) and some form of false peace treaty begins. Things are going to have to get really bad, like nuclear or near nuclear bad before the muslims and palestinians make a peace deal with Israel. There are currently still walled villages and areas inside of Israel to protect the Israeli people from terrorist. They will not remove those walls unless peace is ensured. See pictures and description.

This is a picture of the damascus gate in the northern wall of Jerusalem.

This is a picture of the damascus gate in the northern wall of Jerusalem.

Eze 38:15 reveals where Gog and Magog are from. They are from the remote parts of the north which were known at that time. Those remote parts are now known as Russia.

Eze 38:16 makes it clear that the great battle of Gog and Magog against Israel will occur in the last days, during the tribulation. The last days are during the tribulation thus it could not happen before the tribulation.

Eze 38:19-22 speaks of a great earthquake in Israel. That happens at the end of the tribulation at the end of the battle at Armageddon. Rev 16:12-16 is the 6th vial judgement where the rivers dry up to prepare the way for the great battle (of Gog and Magog) in the place called Armageddon. The last vial judgment ends the great tribulation. It is recored in Rev 16:17-21. That earthquake as recorded in that passage splits the great city into three pieces and collapses all of the cities of the world. It is without a doubt a world wide earthquake because of how Rev 16:17-21 describes it. Later on you will see that is not the only place it speaks of the city being split. In Eze 38:19-22 it also speaks of how the entire world will tremble at the power of YHWH the Elohim of Israel and every mountain will be overturned, every cliff thrown down, and every wall will fall to the ground. It also speaks of the great rain and hail that will occur at the end of the battle. That great quake and the hail is recorded at the end of the tribulation in the book of Revelation 16:17-21. Amazing what you learn when you let scripture interpret scripture.

This is one of the walls surrounding the boarders of Israel. It is there to protect the Israeli people from terrorist. Israel has not yet been able to live in peace.

This is one of the walls surrounding the boarders of Israel. It is there to protect the Israeli people from terrorist. Israel has not yet been able to live in peace.

Eze 38:23 makes it clear that all of this is for the glory of YHWH our Elohim.

The name of YHWH and Yeshua will not be forgotten for 1000 years during the messianic age, as we know through the book of Revelation.

The first several verses of Ezekiel 39 foretells of the defeat of Gog and Magog.

Eze 39:7 speaks of how this event will end the profanity among the nations against YHWH HaShem (HaShem means the name). His name will not be profaned anymore. For that to be fulfilled it would have to be at the very end of the tribulation bringing in the beginning of the messianic age. For it is recorded all throughout the book of Revelation that the people would be profaning the name of our Elohim throughout the great tribulation. If the battle of Gog and Magog is at the beginning of the tribulation, like most church people preach and believe then the prophecy in Eze 39:7 could not be fulfilled. All throughout the tribulation in the book of Revelation it is recorded that the people will profane the name of Elohim. If the profaning of the name of Elohim ends at the battle of Gog and Magog, then that battle could not occur before the tribulation.

Some people call this the apartheid wall. That is an anti-Semitic term for this wall. It is a wall that protects Israel from it's enemies. Since this wall has been erected it has cut down on the rates of suicide bombers in Israel. Again read Eze 38 and you will know these walls will not be still standing when Gog and Magog occurs. The walls can only come down after the tribulation begins and a false peace treaty is in place.

Eze 39:9 starts describing the seven year recovery period. Most church people preach and believe that the seven year recovery period is the tribulation. In harsh reality after the seven year tribulation, there will be a seven year recovery period. This comes from a general misunderstanding of the victory at Armageddon from the book of Revelation. I will explain more on that in a moment. It says in Eze 39:9 that the survivors will be burning all the weapons of war and plundering the plunder of the anti-christ/gog and magog for seven years after the war/tribulation has ended. Again you need to read the passages I quote to see the full text and meaning. This is just a type of study guide for those who wish to learn more about the end of days.

Eze 39:12-20 tells us that it will take the survivors seven months to bury the dead. It would take longer if the beast of the field and the fowl of the air did not also help consume the flesh of the dead. Again that imagery is confirmed by Yeshua. Yeshua in Matthew 24 spoke of that day when one will be taken and the other one left. In Luke 17:26-37, Yeshua speaks the same message recorded in Matthew 24. In Luke 17:32, Yeshua warns us to “remember Lot’s wife”. That warning is for the events at Armageddon and the end of the tribulation during the great battle of Gog and Magog.

We know what happened to Lot’s wife. Lot’s wife was turned into a pillar of salt for looking back upon the destruction and wrath of YHWH on Sodom and Gomorrah that is recorded in Genesis 19. Then in Luke 17:37 the apostles ask where will they (the ones taken) be gathered. Yeshua responds in the same verse that they will be gathered to where the vultures gather. That means they will be gathered to the field of the dead known as “Hamon-Gog” mentioned in Ezekiel 39:15. Hamon-Gog is where most of the bodies will be consumed by birds and wild beast. That imagery also occurs again in Revelation 19:17 after the battle of Armageddon when the animals are told by an Angel to consume the flesh of the enemy. In Eze 39:17 YHWH tells men to command the birds and beast to feast on the corpses that died that day. Many times throughout scripture the term angel and man are interchangeable, not always but many times they are. This is one of those cases the terms are interchangeable. The feast of the dead happens after the enemy is defeated at Armageddon. Thus the great battle of Gog and Magog must occur at Armageddon at the end of the tribulation. Thus beginning a seven year recovery period after the tribulation is over.

The end of Ezekiel 39 speaks of Israel being fully restored after the tribulation. It speaks of the rest of the diaspora being gathered back to Israel. The prophecy in Ezekiel 38-39 makes it clear that every last member of the diaspora (scattered jews) will not return to Israel until after the tribulation/battle of Gog and Magog is over. It is YHWH that will bring us diaspora jews back to Israel regardless of if it is by supernatural means or if YHWH uses humans to gather his elect. I personally believe it will be YHWH using humans to gather the elect, not by supernatural means but I could be wrong. I do not pretend to know the mind of YHWH. It is of no consequence for it will still be an act of our Elohim.

The beginning of the tribulation starts with a war in Israel and ends with a war in Israel without a doubt. The war/battle at the beginning will destroy the temple mount and wailing wall in Jerusalem. During the tribulation a new age temple will be erected and dedicated to YHWH just so it can be desecrated. Yeshua said in Matthew 24 that not one stone of the second temple would be left standing upon another. The wailing wall is part of the second temple and all stones have yet to be thrown down (Picture already posted). After the tribulation the people that survive will repopulate the world and live in peace not having to fear anyone anymore. That is part of the many blessings of the ones who partake in the wedding feast, the messianic age. This is doubly true for the jewish people when the time of the goyim ends at the end of the tribulation.

I understand this topic can be sad and hard to think of so here is your comic relief!

The return of Yeshua as spoke of in Revelation is misunderstood by most people. Yeshua and the angels will come and wage the battle for us. We will be able to physically see the battle if we choose to watch. We should be able to see it all over the world, for as lighting appears in the east it is seen in the west. However the survivors who go out to the battle and look upon it with their own eyes will not be able to share what they saw if they dare look. That is because they will end up like Lot’s Wife. Human beings are not able to survive physically when looking upon the physical form of YHWH. YHWH will be with Yeshua in that day, just like YHWH was at Sodom and Gomorrah. At the time the great battle of Gog and Magog at Armageddon, Yeshua appears and defeats the enemy at the end of the tribulation. Again anyone who goes out to look upon the battle being waged will perish. Anyone who goes out to fight, even thinking in arrogance that Yeshua needs their help will perish! I strongly recommend any survivors to flee, hide and don’t turn back to look lest they end up like Lot’s wife. It is not a rapture, it is the wrath of YHWH!

Yeshua is the real name of Jesus

The marriage of the lamb takes place on earth not in heaven, as some people preach and believe. Rev 19:7-10 speaks of the marriage. The wedding feast begins when Yeshua comes back to defeat the armies of Gog and Magog at Armageddon, when the tribulation ends and the messianic age begins. The wedding feast is the messianic age. After the messianic age when the wedding feast ends is when the bridegroom takes His bride to His father’s household to live in ancient jewish marriage tradition. The marriage is normally consummated in the father of the bridegrooms home. However I do not believe the consummation happens in heaven like many rapture believers believe. There are people whose whole belief in a pre-trib rapture is based on going to heaven to consummate the marriage of the lamb before the wedding feast. The imagery of the ancient jewish wedding is very important but if that is the only legitimate debate you have when so many scriptures contradict that belief you need spiritual help. That imagery is very important in end of days (end times) prophecy. However there is far more to it than that symbolism. It is at the end of time and space that what is commonly known as a rapture, (when the bride is taken to the father’s house to live) will occur.

There were three stages of the wedding. Negotiating for the bride which is the time and events leading up to the first coming of Yeshua HaMashiach. The tanach had to come before the messiah. The tanach is more commonly known as the old testament but I hate the terminology old testament. The tanach and the post messianic scriptures is one complete covenant not a old one done away with and replaced by a new one. The second step was to pay the brides price. The payment was the death and resurrection of Yeshua HaMashiach. The next step is the betrothal and wedding of the bride to the groom. The betrothal has been occurring for the last 2000 years and will continue until the end of time, when people throughout the ages choose to accept Yeshua HaMashiach. The betrothal is when the bride accepts Yeshua into their heart and it is consummated when one is is filled with the kadosh (holy) spirit.

Just as when a man enters his wife for the first time the marriage is consummated, so the consummation of the bride of Yeshua (Christ) is when the kadosh (holy) spirit enters His bride. My wife hated me using that analogy but that would be more appropriate and legitimate symbolism than a secret rapture that is not mentioned anywhere in scripture. After the wedding the bride and bridegroom must travel back to the wedding feast. Meaning a period of time must occur after the consummation and before the wedding feast occurred. There will be people who arrive on time (the survivors of the tribulation) and those who arrive late to the wedding feast (those born during the messianic age). Thus we wait for the messianic age traveling throughout time waiting for the wedding feast. In this case the wedding feast will last 1000 years. The first seven years of the messianic age will be spent burning the weapons of war and pillaging property of the great enemy. The wedding feast is typically seven days or one week. The seven year recovery and one millennium of peace on earth. The symbolism is just mind blowing to me.

God provides for the fowls of the air! He shall provide for those who put their faith in him!

God provides for the fowls of the air! He shall provide for those who put their faith in him!

Yeshua makes it clear that 50 percent of the survivors of the tribulation will die during the battle at Armageddon. Matthew 24 and Luke 17 makes it clear that when one will be taken and the other one left is a 50% death rate. That event is without a doubt the end of the great tribulation. That is on top of the 75% that dies during the tribulation making the total death toll of the tribulation around 87.5% of the original population. It is not 1 in 4 that will survive but more like 1 in 10. That could be 50 percent of the people just in Israel or world wide. I personally believe it will be world wide with the majority of the battle occurring in Israel. I could be wrong though.

The protestant church is like my white rose bush. There are parts that look beautfiul and smell nice but grasp the whole teachings (bush) and you are going to be in a lot pain and trouble. The protestants have many thorns and snares that will bring spiritual destruction upon the souls of their subjects.

The period of recovery after the tribulation would still be in the messianic age. Even though a seven year recovery period sounds grim and depressing. Things will be so much better during that time of recovery than it was during the tribulation, that the recovery will feel like relief in a way. Even though the recovery will be harder than most could imagine by modern privileged standards, it will still feel like relief. YHWH and Yeshua would physically return to heaven after the battle of Armageddon. The messianic age is when men no longer learn the art of war because no war will occur. That day has not yet come. As war has been going on since the fall of man. We know that no war will occur during the messianic age because of the prophecies recorded in Isaiah 2-4. The messiah will still be in the hearts of all men. Yeshua will reign in spirit for 1000 years, not physically but spiritually. After the events of the tribulation the world will be forever changed and the people will not forget to teach the children what occurred in those days for the rest of time. It will be a time of peace, love and goodwill towards all of humanity.

The seven year recovery and the rebuilding after the recovery will be extremely difficult and will be remembered in the history books as well. The people who survive and rebuild the world will not be the ones being given the glory. The glory will belong to YHWH and Yeshua. The future history of the tribulation and recovery period is for the glory of YHWH and Yeshua. It will be taught and proclaimed to all humans left alive and born during the messianic age.

2 Peter 3 makes it clear that at the end of the messianic age when satan’s bonds are loosed, people will mock and scoff the true believers that are left. They will be saying the return will not occur and the world will always stand just as it always has. I believe they will most likely use the history of the period before the tribulation and the events of the tribulation to justify such beliefs. Satan will not have forgotten the time of his defeat and will use it to deceive people once more. I believe those people will say or think that most of the so-called believers thought a rapture would happen then and it didn’t. They will proclaim just as a pre-trib rapture never occurred the true return will never happen.

After the wedding feast when the messianic age ends a day will come that the heavens and earth will be destroyed. That is when Yeshua will take his bride to his father’s household in a rapture. That is made clear in 2 Peter 3. After the wedding feast, YHWH will destroy time and space welcoming His son Yeshua and His bride into eternal shabbas. YHWH will create a new physical heaven (sky/universe) and earth after he destroys our current universe and time itself. A new first week of creation will begin again and a new existence will occur while we are either in heaven or in hell.

Yom Teruah is a day of shofar blast!

Yom Teruah is a day of shofar blast!

Isaiah 2-4 also speaks of the events of the tribulation and the period after. Isaiah 2 is where we learn that the messianic age will be a time where men no longer learn the art of war. Isaiah 4 in particular is very interesting because it mentions polygamy will return because there will be seven women to every man. That is part of the recovery period that is so tough. Men are more likely to run to battle to protect women, than women are to protect children. The men that run to battle will perish like Lot’s Wife. That is a huge reason why there will be seven women to every one man. Every person will need one another just to survive. Men don’t get too eager for that because all of the women will be bald and disfigured from the events of the tribulation. That is recorded in Isaiah 3. The polygamy will also help repopulate the earth. Isaiah 4 also speaks of the glory of Zion after the great destruction and blood shed. Every person (survivor of Israel/Gog and Magog war) will have to work for food and pillage the possessions of the anti-christ and his kingdom just to survive for many years after the tribulation is over: As you read about in Ezekiel 38-39.

Deuteronomy 28 is a curse that befell ancient Israel but is returning and coming upon the whole world once more. We see this in many current events everything from 9/11, the troubled world economy, and even the North Korean issues of cannibalism. The language in Isaiah 2-4 describing the world wide time of trouble leading to the messianic age is very similar to the description of the curse that would befall a nation that forsakes YHWH in Deut 28.

Matthew 5:17 17“Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets.  I did not come to destroy but to complete.

Matthew 5:17 17“Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets.  I did not come to destroy but to complete.

Isaiah 24 is a prophecy about tribulation that brings the destruction of the age of the goyim (gentiles) and will eventually bring in the messianic age. It speaks of how during that time of trouble the surface of the earth will be distorted. I imagine it as kind of lumpy and discolored. The earth will become cursed and will not give forth plant life. It will become despoiled and laid to waste. That means that it will be plundered and lay in ruins. It speaks of how the exalted (famous and powerful) people will fade away (physically and from memory). It speaks of a world filled with pollution and sin. A world that is literally polluted. The curse will devour the earth and few men will be left. Our earth is already polluted and the pollution will get worse before the end. I think the verse about few men will be left refers to all of mankind but also doubles in meaning to confirm Isaiah 4 speaking of the fact that there will be seven women to every one man.

Reading through Isaiah 24 we see a lot of similar imagery that is mentioned in the book of Revelation. At the end of Isaiah 24 it speaks of YHWH ruling on Mt. Zion during a time of peace. Isaiah 24:21-22 confirms the imagery in Revelation of the beast and the kings of the earth being locked away for 1000 years. Isaiah 24:23 confirms the imagery of the messianic age and YHWH and Yeshua ruling from Mt. Zion. As is the christian belief that YHWH, Yeshua and the Kadosh Spirit are three in one. Jerusalem will be the capitol of Israel and all nations will look to Israel for guidance. That is confirmed in Zechariah 8:20-23. Zechariah makes it clear that it will be in spirit, not in physical form. Zechariah 8:23 is where we see for sure it is in spirit. It tells us that the people grasp the garment of the jew begging to go with them because YHWH is with them. That is how the rule of YHWH and Yeshua will occur on Mt. Zion, in spirit.

Wide is the path and broad is the way that leads to hell much like this service road.

Wide is the path and broad is the way that leads to hell much like this service road.

There are two more passages I wish to share with you before I wrap this up. The two passages are Zechariah 14 and 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12. I will begin with Zechariah 14. For many years I believed that Zechariah 14 prophesied a nuclear war. That is simply not the case. It is describing the final battle and how Jerusalem will be seized once more and people will ravage the great city. Zechariah 14 also repeats symbolism mentioned earlier in this article. It speaks of a great earthquake that will split the city into multiple pieces and cause all of the mountains to disappear in Israel. It speaks of how the nation of Israel will be a plain after the day that YHWH sets His feet on the mount of olives. It is when YHWH sets His feet upon the Mount of Olives that the mountain splits, splitting the great city into 3 pieces. The Mount of Olives is in Jerusalem. It also mentions that day will be like none other, there will be no light. Again that symbolism is also mentioned in the 7th vial judgement that is mentioned in Revelation.

Zechariah 14 gets more interesting. It speaks of how the people will be plundered in this war and how when YHWH and Yeshua come to fight the battle that a certain plague would come upon the enemy. That plague is why I have thought for years it would be nuclear. Recently it was revealed to me that I was wrong. The plague of the flesh melting off while they still stand on their feet and their eyes and tongue rotting out in the sockets and mouth is not a nuclear event. It is the glory of YHWH and Yeshua destroying them. Similar to the event portrayed in the movie “Raiders of the Lost Ark” when the Nazi’s opened the ark. Of course that is just a movie and not once did it factor into my belief. I was explaining this curse and someone pointed out that scene in “Raiders of the Lost Ark” asking me if it was like that. It is very much like that curse. See the video at the end of this article.

Not even the animals will survive the curse mentioned in Zechariah 14. So no use sending the animals to fight as well! That picture of the donkey with the gun was taken in Israel!

Not even the animals will survive the curse mentioned in Zechariah 14. So no use sending the animals to fight as well! That picture of the donkey with the gun was taken in Israel!

The final passage I wish to discuss is 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12. That passage is about the man of lawlessness. It gives a warning and description of what will happen to the anti-christ and his forces at the end of the great battle. The man of lawlessness cannot come until a great deception and apostasy comes. I once thought the great deception would be a demonic invasion pretending to be alien saviors. I still believe that is a possible event. However I believe now that the greatest deception is the doctrine of a rapture occurring before the end of the messianic age. That deception will cause many to act like Lot’s wife and run to their death. This passage also speaks of YHWH sending a powerful delusion on those who did not believe the truth and took pleasure in or approved of wickedness.

2 Thessalonains 2:8 is the passage that confirmed to me that the message of “Remember Lot’s Wife” was very important to give. It speaks of the man of lawlessness being revealed and that YHWH and Yeshua will slay him with the breath of their mouth and by the glory of their coming. I was nearing the end of completion of this article when a buddy of mine mentioned the passage in 2 Thessalonians. It blew my mind when he mentioned this and I am very thankful for this man. All YHWH and Yeshua will need to do is to speak and the man of lawlessness being “Gog” or “the Anti-Christ” which ever term you prefer would be destroyed. The glory of His coming will be enough to kill any mortal. The passage in Zechariah 14 mentioned the plague also consumed all of the animals too. That is because no living thing can stand in the physical presence of YHWH without perishing.

Even Moses was not allowed to see the physical form of YHWH without being destroyed. Even Yeshua did not physically stand in the presence of YHWH while he was in His mortal form. Anyone who thinks they are worthy to physically stand in the presence of YHWH or Yeshua is arrogant and will perish in the great battle if they do not repent of that sin and humble themselves. Physically standing in the presence of YHWH will cause the plague mentioned in Zechariah to befall a person.

In conclusion: The most important advice I can give you is repeating the words of Yeshua “Remember Lot’s Wife” it might just save your life one day to heed that advice. The other advice I have to give is to humble yourself and pray without ceasing, always asking for guidance and truth. Seek the truth and you will find the truth. Learn humility, forgiveness and love for those three traits are the best traits a human can have. Shalom Aleichem! May YHWH bless you and lead you to the truth!

Adultery, Drug Addiction, and Feminism (The True Story of Sue and Sam)


The topic of adultery is one that has been on my mind lately for several reasons. I know someone personally whom I will refer to as “Sue” for legal reasons. Sue has been going through a divorce. Sue came to mine and Stephanie’s wedding and while she was at our wedding her husband began sleeping with another woman. It was not just another woman but another man’s wife. It was the wife of a couple friend of theirs. Sue did not find out about the affair her husband was continuing to have with their friends wife for about a year or two. When Sue found out about the affair she went crazy. In the midst of the chaos she was thrown into she decided to get even. Two wrongs never make a right.

What YHWH has joined together let no man separate!

What YHWH has joined together let no man separate!

She became an adulteress as well. She was still married to her husband and starting sleeping around. First with the husband of the woman, Sue’s husband had cheated with. Then it went on to a string of other people until she settled with one man whom we will call “Sam”. Again the real name is not being used for legal reasons. Sue spiraled deeper into the abyss eventually got hooked on a very nasty drug. Sue had struggled for years with milder drugs and alcohol thanks to her husband and in-laws. Sue was not yet legally divorced from her husband at the time of me writing this. Sam was not divorced from his wife either, plus he was a drug dealer. Sam got Sue hooked on heroin. Before then Sue was quiet happy being a pill popper and a drunk. Sue kept the drug issue secret from her family and many of her friends. She managed to keep it secret for a while. It was when she was waking up from her high and getting out of bed that she discovered Sam on the floor dead as a doornail. That is when she was no longer able to hide her heroin usage. Sam’s lips were blue and he still had the foam around his mouth. Some sources say he OD’d, others say it was a bad batch of heroin cut with rat poison. I don’t know for sure which story is true. I guess in the end it doesn’t really matter that much. The heroin still killed Sam.

Sue said Sam wanted to take it to the edge. He took it to the edge for sure. He took it past the edge and fell off into the abyss of hell. I do not say this to be mean. I pity Sam because his soul is lost. I pity Sue because her life has taken such a bad turn. Sue claims to have hit rock bottom. Rock bottom is better than below rock bottom. Sue is going to have a very hard path to walk now. She will either repent and get cleaned up or she will fail and follow Sam into the abyss. I hope and pray that she will repent and get cleaned up. I do love Sue and do not want her to fall into the abyss. I normally would not publish such a story on my blog because it would be considered gossip. However I share this story for two reasons. The first and main reason is to give a lesson about the dangers of physical adultery and adultery of the heart.

Yeshua is the real name of Jesus

Yeshua is the real name of Jesus

The second reason is to give this short simple message that I will give right now: Do not start taking drugs. Just say no to drugs! Drugs will destroy your life. Drugs will cause you and your loved ones a lot of pain and sorrow. The actions of Sue has deeply hurt in the emotional sense my family and her children from her husband.

Just Say No To Drugs, Tobacco, and Alcohol

Just Say No To Drugs, Tobacco, and Alcohol

Of course I mention her husband because as my regular readers will understand I do not support divorce and remarriage. My blog titled “Does God Hate Divorce?” speaks of my views on divorce and remarriage. This blog will only briefly mention those views. If you have not already read that blog I encourage you to read it after you read this blog. It is more on par with advanced biblical studies than for beginners. Here is the link to that blog:

Again Just say no to drugs, alcohol, and tobacco!

The story of Sue and Sam is something that has strong imagery to use in this lesson. Sadly even though I am using cute fake names, this story is incredibly sad and true. The cute names are helping me not to cry. I had been reading a few chapters in Proverbs on Saturdays after our Shabbat Torah study in private. In particular a few verses from Proverbs 5 really grab my attention in regards to the story of Sue and Sam.

Proverbs 5:3-6
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

For the lips of an adulteress drip honey
And smoother than oil is her speech;

But in the end she is bitter as wormwood,
Sharp as a two-edged sword.

Her feet go down to death,
Her steps take hold of Sheol.

She does not ponder the path of life;
Her ways are unstable, she does not know it.


These four verses are meant as a metaphor obviously. It doesn’t mean a literal death but a spiritual death. However when Sue got out of bed death was literally at her feet. The dead soul had taken the journey to Sheol. Sheol can be interpreted as the abyss or hell or destruction. Typically in jewish tradition it is an in between place similar to purgatory. Sue never pondered the other paths that she could have taken. Sue viewed that she had only one option and that was revenge. She did not see that her ways were unstable at all. She thought that was the most stable and normal thing a person could do. We do not know why she felt that way. She was raised better than that. She even proclaims that Sam is in “a better place”. First off he was sleeping with another man’s wife, while he was married to another woman. Secondly he killed himself by injecting heroin into his veins. He died in an unsaved state. It is sad when someone cracks hell wide open but I refuse to say he is in “a better place”.

Matthew 5:17 17“Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets.  I did not come to destroy but to complete.

Matthew 5:17 17“Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets.  I did not come to destroy but to complete.

Sue literally embodied this proverbial adulteress. Her lips dripped with honey and her speech was smoother than oil. She convinced everyone that she was a victim (and she was in the beginning) but then the truth came out that she was just as bad, if not worse than her husband. The wool that she had pulled over everyone’s eyes was the honey and oil. Her true lifestyle was as bitter as wormwood (wormwood is a bitter tasting poison) and as sharp and dangerous as a two edged sword. When she awoke from her bed death was literally at her feet and the dead person had taken the journey to sheol. She never pondered the path of life she was on and was seriously unstable. Sue never realizing how unstable she really was. I know I slightly repeated myself but I grieve over the path Sue has taken.

This is so true! The problem is what do people value and hold sacred. Are you a warrior for wickedness of a warrior for Elohim?

This is so true! The problem is what do people value and hold sacred. Are you a warrior for wickedness of a warrior for Elohim?

This is the most extreme case of anyone I have personally known. What about other cases of adultery? Also how does adultery begin? Let us go to the beginning stages of adultery that is spoke of in Matthew 5:27-30:

Matthew 5:27-30
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery’; 28 but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go into hell.

The adultery of the heart sin is something I personally believe has been taught wrong in most churches. I do believe adultery of the heart is the first steps in committing adultery of the flesh. That is something I think we can all agree on. One must become aroused and lust after a man or woman before having consensual sex with them. However my next train of thought is where a lot of people are going to disagree with me. I do not believe it is adultery of the heart when a young unmarried man lusts after his young unmarried girlfriend and vice versa. I believe adultery of the heart is when you lust after a married woman that you are not married too. It also occurs when a married woman lusts after a man she is not married too. This can get complicated on many levels that I am not going to get into at this time. I will go into a few levels though.

I just love this picture. The quote on the paper is so true. However marriage has far deeper meaning that annoying one another.

I just love this picture. The quote on the paper is so true. However marriage has far deeper meaning that annoying one another.

It is clear that if two people are in a monogamous relationship lusting for people outside of the marriage bed it is adultery of the heart. However for single people, only lusting after someone who is married makes you an adulterer of the heart. That does not mean you can look at pornographic images or videos of single people and be okay. The majority of churches do preach that young men lusting after their girlfriends is the same thing as adultery. They fail to factor in the tenth commandment in Exodus 20:17:

Exodus 20:17
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife or his male servant or his female servant or his ox or his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

It is often shortened to “Thou Shall Not Covet”. Covet means to yearn to possess or have something. If you are lusting after your neighbor’s wife, you are coveting your neighbors wife. Thus by coveting her body, you are committing adultery of the heart. If you are married and are lusting after one you are not married to, you are coveting a woman that does not belong to you. If you are single and lust after women you cannot marry that is adultery of the heart. That is because they have to belong to someone else if you cannot marry them. That also classifies as vain imaginations. It is not okay to look at or watch pornography because it is vain imaginations and a big waste of productive time. Even if they (single celebrities, porn stars or whoever) are not yet married they are destined for someone else. It is a vain imagining that should be suppressed. However if a young single man who is courting a young single woman begins to lust after his girlfriend, he is not committing adultery of the heart. The urge is natural but precautions must be taken. They should arrange to be married and the young couple should wait to have sexual relations until they are married. They should also take precautions against the possibility of lusting after one another. The young lady should always dress modestly to prevent the young man from sinning. They should agree to not be alone together and to not touch one another until the wedding night when the marriage is consummated.

A very inspiring book no matter what your belief system may be.

A very inspiring book no matter what your belief system may be.

That kind of behavior is frowned upon in modern American society. However that is the way things used to be and that is the way they still should be. Monogamy is a gift from YHWH our Elohim. Sexual relations is a wedding gift from YHWH our Elohim. If the gift is taken outside of marriage then it is a sin. The fact of the matter is there is a difference between “cultural marxism” and “feminism”. Cultural marxism is when women blame men for all the woes in the world. While they (cultural marxist) dress and act like nothing more than a possession that wants to be used. Cultural marxism truly degrades the female of the human species to that of a female animal. True feminism is when women dress and act in a modest fashion. Their behavior says I am more than an object, I am a person and refuse to dress like a whore. They realize that submission is not a burden but a virtue. They realize the highest calling they spiritually have is to be a wife and mother. To raise and instill values in their children. All in hopes that the children can have a better life and that the nation can have better future. True feminism is the idea that even though there is a power structure within a family unit, the father and mother are still equal with the wife being the helpmate (not the slave) of the husband.

The Ten Commandments!

The Ten Commandments!

In orthodox jewish communities married women wear a head covering to prevent an accidental sin. For example: Causing a man to mistake her for a single woman and to begin coveting her. When the head is covered and used as a sign of marriage there is no “Opps! I didn’t see her wedding ring”. It is in your face that she is married and you are less likely to spend time talking with this woman. Cultural marxist view this kind of behavior as anti-feminism or oppressive. However it takes true feminism to say that the wife is the spiritually stronger person and has a duty to make sure men are not falling into sin. As the stronger person it is their duty to dress and act modestly. If a woman dresses immodestly or like a whore, they are advertising themselves as a piece of meat wanting to be used. Even if that is not the message they mean to give, it IS the message they are sending.

However when the churches make young men and women feel that their desires are unnatural and sinful. They feel that they are doomed to commit that sin. They feel little desire to combat that sin. I have been in church buildings where the women dressed more appropriately serving food at a restaurant than they did in the church building. Women who dress in clothes that reveal skin, ARE causing men to sin. The skin and hair is for the marriage bed and they are leading men into sin because they are the spiritually stronger sex acting in a perverse manner. I came to understand all of this during my studies. The word for woman in Matthew 5:28 is the greek word “Gune” pronounced “goo-nay” it can mean either “all women” or “a betrothed/married woman”. Since adultery is sexual immorality with a married person. It has to mean lusting after another mans wife. Meaning that coveting another man’s wife is in fact adultery. Any monogamous couple that is not free to marry other people are in fact committing adultery even if they lust after a single person. I have already covered the topic of lust for young single never married couples in this article.

The act of lusting while in a monogamous relationship leads people down the path to commit physical adultery. After a while the lusting grows old and a more powerful fix is needed, much like Sam and his compulsion for heroin. Eventually the lust overtakes the married person and physical adultery is committed. The physical adultery ends up hurting their spouse and everyone involved. The act of being cheated on can cause people who are already wound tight, to snap and do something stupid like Sue. It can cause divorce, broken homes, and many people have committed the act of murder because of marital infidelity. It can cause too many things to list. Adultery is listed in the ten commandments because it was so important to keep away from it. Keeping the commandments gives us a better life in all areas.

Coveting/lusting after another mans wife is included in the ten commandments because of the serious repercussions it can have. Yeshua was just giving the proper interpretation of not just the Torah but the terms of the covenant, “the ten commandments”. We must guard ourselves against immorality. If we see scantly clad women, we men must make a strong effort to look away. Even I find it hard to look away from the “Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition” in the checkout line but I look away even when it is not easy. For true believers who are women, you have a responsibility to dress appropriately because the sin of these men whom you cause to lust will be on your head too. I encourage you to dress modestly and wear a head covering. You can even use the head covering as a conversation starter about your faith and belief system. Do not look at it as a burden. Look upon it as a sign of your spiritual strength, job and destiny. Just be careful not to become prideful over your strength because pride always comes before the fall.

Let us be the generation that breaks the chains of bondage to this immoral counter culture movement! It is possible because Yeshua is with us every step of the way and He conquered death! He will make it possible if we dedicate our lives to Him! Let us make our sole purpose to serve him!

CELEBRATE!


Celebration is a part of human life. We rarely have a month that goes by that there is nothing to celebrate, especially for us jews. We have a weekly celebration that begins every Friday evening and goes until Saturday evening. It is known to most people as the sabbath. Shabbat (The Sabbath) is a celebration of creation. It is the day that YHWH our Elohim made time kadosh (holy or set apart). We take that time to remember that our Elohim made everything and that by His will all things exist. We recently also celebrated Valentine’s Day a day of celebrating love and marriage. Valentine’s Day is of catholic origins but is more secular in mode of celebration. It became so secular and had so little proof to back up the various legends about St. Valentine that even the Catholic Church removed St. Valentine’s Day from it’s official calendar from my understanding.

I proudly fly this flag!

Celebration is very important to the human soul and state of morality. There is a legend that Satan and the archangel Michael pleaded their cases before Elohim. Michael argued that the people were observing many commandments, and Satan argued that they also committed many sins.

Michael responded, “When the people do mitzvahs, they celebrate. They make a feast for their weddings and bar mitzvahs, when they complete a volume of Torah, and when they celebrate Shabbat and the Festivals. Yes, they may occasionally sin, but it is only because they cannot withstand temptation. No one throws a party for a sin. See what they celebrate, and You will see what they truly value.”

Yeshua is the real name of Jesus

Yeshua is the real name of Jesus

This legend is talked about in Rabbi Abraham Twerski’s “Living Each Day” and has a very valuable lesson to be learned. That lesson is “See what they celebrate and You will see what they truly value.”. People celebrate what they value. People celebrate their wedding anniversary because they value their marriage. People celebrate the birth of a child because they value the new addition to a family. People celebrate coming of age because they value maturity. The list goes on and on. Last weekend was very big for us. Friday the 14th of February my family celebrated Valentine’s Day. My wife and I met on Valentine’s Day 2010, it is now 2014. Then at sunset that Friday, Valentine’s Day ended for us and shabbat began. We celebrated the creation of all things by YHWH our Elohim until Saturday evening when shabbat ended. That shabbat also coincided with little Purim. The day Purim would have fallen had it not been a leap year. Purim is to celebrate the unseen hand of Elohim and remembering how YHWH our Elohim delivered the jewish people from the wicked plan of Haman by using a beautiful jewish woman named Queen Esther. We will be celebrating Purim next month because we value the unseen hand of YHWH our Elohim and the miracles we have received.

I want to get deeper into this lesson. Many people celebrate Christmas and Easter. They are without a doubt pagan holidays wearing christian masks. Most people celebrate Christmas. Christmas is celebrated by pagans and atheist as well as church people. Atheist want to see all religion removed from every aspect of public and private life. Pagans just want their holiday back. I am not using this blog to bash the paganistic celebrations. I want to share my new thoughts on this ever since I have learned this lesson from Rabbi Twerski. People celebrated these holidays for many years and the people were still somewhat decent. These holidays were being celebrated while our nation was still being blessed by the Elohim of Israel. As long as the people were truly celebrating the birth of Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ) on December 25th and were making it a day of worship, truly celebrating the birth of the messiah they were being blessed. They were celebrating His birth because they valued his birth.

As time has gone on, the people valued the good times of Christmas more than the birth of Yeshua. It has spiraled out of control into this holiday of materialism that many true believers have grown to hate, while most professing church people love and embrace. It has become an eye sore and has brought reproach upon the church people. It is because the church people have enabled it to become more about materialism than the birth of Yeshua. They value the good times more than the birth of the messiah. I believe there are still a few churches who truly use it as a day to honor the birth of the messiah. Even though I have many problems with the doctrines of Catholicism. I have to say they are the most devout in valuing the birth of the messiah on December 25th. When it is a true day of worship and not of materialism I can respect their desire to do so. It is a devotion that the protestants seriously lack.

This is what my Blue Coconut Star of David  Bunt Cake looks like on the inside. It taste as good as it looks. We will make it again for Purim.

Celebration does not have to be a big party that involves fun, games, and gifts or prizes. Celebrating can be an act of worship. Celebrating can be a moment to take a break and remember an important event or person like Columbus Day, Memorial Day, President’s Day, or the Forth of July. Even though celebrations do not have to be grandiose they can all still be enjoyable and memorable. If you are going to celebrate an important religious event it should be spent more in church or a synagogue than with friends and family exchanging gifts.

The problem I see with people now days is that people are no longer celebrating things that are spiritually valuable. They are celebrating good times and wickedness. The majority of people on Earth especially in America value good times and wickedness more than sacrifice and Godliness. The media and people celebrate unwed teenage mothers in shows like “Teen Mom” and “Secret Life of an American Teenager”. They are celebrating homosexuality with gay pride parades. They are celebrating the murder of over 55 million babies via abortion by celebrating the so called victory of Roe V. Wade. Just last year there was a lot of celebration over legal baby murder because it was the 40th Anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling. They celebrate divorce with various television shows and events. They celebrate all kinds of sin and debauchery. That is why the world is doomed to go through the great tribulation. Nothing will turn them back except the end of days events.

This is so true! The problem is what do people value and hold sacred. Are you a warrior for wickedness of a warrior for Elohim?

This is so true! The problem is what do people value and hold sacred. Are you a warrior for wickedness of a warrior for Elohim?

Most people are more interested in having sex on valentines day than expressing the value of love and marriage. That is because most people no longer value love and marriage. Love and marriage is now viewed as a disease by most people. Most people are more interested in seeing fireworks, drinking beer and eating food on the 4th of July, than taking the time to remember that we declared independence from the British for a reason. They do not bother taking the time to read through the Declaration of Independence. Most people are more interested in stuffing their faces and watching football or going hunting on Thanksgiving than actually giving thanks to YHWH the Elohim of Israel for all the things they have been blessed with. People are more interested in giving and getting presents than going to a worship service on December 25th to remember the birth of the messiah.

The church people, the pagans, and the various other groups of non-believers lack knowledge in how to celebrate. The jewish people know how to properly celebrate and we understand the significance in celebration. We celebrate what we value. There is a holiday that happens in the late spring to early summer in the hebrew calendar called Shavuot or Pentacost. Pentacost is the day that YHWH the Elohim of Israel gave the Torah (the law) to Moses. In the book of Acts in the Christian bible it was this very same day that YHWH the Elohim of Israel sent the kadosh (holy or set apart) spirit down upon the assembly of messianic believers in Jerusalem. The jewish community celebrates Shavuot by staying up all night eating dairy dishes and reading from the Torah. The church people do very little and in most cases nothing to commemorate the events of Pentacost. There is no celebration because they do not value the giving of the kadosh (holy or set apart) spirit or the law.

Does this make you think?

Does this make you think?

On Passover we hold a seder to tell the story of how YHWH our Elohim spared us and brought us out of Egypt. For messianic jews we also remember the sacrifice of Yeshua HaMashiach on Passover because that is when he was sacrificed. We remember and tell the story of how we were delivered from bondage (slavery and sin). We celebrate in such a way because we value the deliverance from bondage (slavery and sin). We will dress up in costume next month and read the book of Esther at a costume party for Purim. We do this because we value the unseen hand of our Elohim and the deliverance that was given from His unseen hand. The list can go on and on without a doubt. We celebrate so many things of spiritual value because we value the spiritual history of our people and our religion. It is something lacking in modern society because people are more obsessed with celebrating good times and wickedness than something of spiritual value.

Even when the churches were giving Sunday to YHWH they were being blessed because they were truly giving a day to Him. They were not great or righteous but they were humble and was trying to do the right thing. In the mercy of YHWH he blessed them for trying their best, even though they were doing wrong out of ignorance. Now that the blue laws have been done away with, most modern church people don’t even know what it means to give a day to YHWH. They view going to church for a couple of hours on Sunday and spending the rest of the day doing their own thing as giving a day to YHWH. That is not giving a day to YHWH, it is not celebrating the work of YHWH. It is giving a couple of hours to YHWH in hopes of gaining spiritual fire insurance. I admit many of the sins of the church people are committed out of ignorance and all out deception. One day the pastors that led them down the wide road that leads to hell will have to answer for all of the souls they led to hell. It is not too late for your soul. I urge you all if you have not done so yet to repent and turn to Yeshua HaMashiach! For only in Yeshua HaMashiach is there true hope for change and spiritual growth.

A wonderful song to dance to in celebrating things of Godly values.

Does God Hate Divorce?


Divorce is a messy topic to discuss. Most Americans including devout church people suffer from broken homes. Most modern people are divorced or will be divorced at sometime in their life. It has become socially acceptable in most circles. Most people believe it is spiritually acceptable to get divorced and get remarried. Most will use adultery as a reason to remarry, twisting scripture to fit their false belief. Some will say that God wants them to be happy and they have been forgiven so it is okay for them to remarry. It is even more sad that I have had fights with preachers who believe divorce and remarriage is okay for abuse victims even when no physical adultery was involved. I have had fights with those same men for teaching that if someone became a christian after the divorce and remarriage it is a scriptural marriage. All of those are false beliefs.

In previous centuries divorce was viewed as treason and one of the most wicked things a person could do. Then in the 1900’s the churches embraced this false doctrine that remarriage is okay if you divorced a cheating spouse. Once the first lie was taught as truth the excuses grew and evolved into the things I mentioned in the above paragraph. This blog is long but important to read for truth seekers and students of scripture. This is not about bashing anyone for the mistakes they have made. It is only meant to educate people on the truth about why scripturally speaking divorce is a sin in most cases but remarriage after divorce is always forbidden! The only scriptural 2nd marriage is if your first marriage was ended by the death of your first spouse.

What YHWH has joined together let no man separate!

What YHWH has joined together let no man separate!

It is sad that the views on divorce and remarriage have become so liberal. People seem to think God wants them to be happy and married to their 2nd, 3rd, or 4th or whatever number spouse. Many of those same people who support divorce and remarriage under the idea that God wants them to be happy are quick to denounce prosperity gospels. They don’t support the idea that God wants you to be rich with a mansion and lambo. However they fully believe that God wants them, their families, and parishioners to be happy in an adulterous unscriptural marriage. The two ideas of God wanting your happiness with a spouse or that God wants you to be happy with material wealth are the exact same idea and spirit. It’s a gospel of the Nicolaitans!

I just love this picture. The quote on the paper is so true. However marriage has far deeper meaning that annoying one another.

I just love this picture. The quote on the paper is so true. However marriage has far deeper meaning that annoying one another.

Here is the cold hard truth!

YHWH our Elohim (God) hates divorce! I will repeat that again! YHWH our Elohim hates divorce!

I am not saying YHWH hates people who divorce and remarry. I am saying He hates the act of divorce and remarriage. It is a sin for anyone to divorce their spouse for any reason other than adultery or idolatry. Even then divorce is only scriptural to one party if the cheating or idolatrous spouse is not willing to stay with their spouse and work through their problems. The spouse not willing to stay made the other spouse a victim in the divorce. If the cheating or idolatrous spouse is willing to stay and work out the problems, then the other spouse cannot scripturally divorce that spouse without it being a sin for both parties. Even then remarriage is never permitted! Once you divorce your spouse, you must either remarry the spouse you divorced before your spouse remarries someone else or you must live the rest of your life alone. That is all according to scripture and in this article you shall be presented with the scriptural backing for what I am saying to you right now. YHWH my Elohim makes it clear in scripture that He hates the act of divorce. I will quote some scriptures and give commentary on each of them.

Matthew 5:31-32
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
31 “It was said, ‘Whoever sends his wife away, let him give her a certificate of divorce’; 32 but I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except for the reason of unchastity, makes her commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.


I proudly fly this flag!

I proudly fly this flag!

This passage is the best known of divorce and remarriage scriptures among church people. Yet it is the least understood and most used to promote a false belief that remarriage is okay for people who were cheated on in their marriage. People used to understand this passage but over the last 100 years the church people have forgotten the meaning of this scripture because of the hardness of their hearts (unrepentant nature). The hebrew culture to whom this sermon was originally preached was very different than modern American culture. A little background on hebrew culture is needed to help understand this passage.

Only hebrew men could divorce their wives. Wives were not permitted to divorce their husbands. Wives had to request a divorce from their husband if they wanted to get divorced. The writ of divorce is referred to as a “get”. The “get” is the certificate of divorce that Yeshua (Jesus) is talking about. Yeshua also mentions that anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery. The same goes for a man who is divorced from his wife. Any woman that marries a divorced man commits adultery as well. That does not in any way mean it is okay to marry a divorced person if their first spouse cheated on them. It means anyone who marries a divorced person commits adultery period. It is important to understand the culture that the scriptures were written to in order to understand them. I understand most people will reject this message because it is a hard pill to swallow for a culture that is overfilled will broken homes.

Yeshua was never speaking against the law of Moses. He still believed that if you divorced your wife you still had to give her that “get” or “certificate of divorce”. He believed and preached that divorcing your wife for any reason other than physical adultery would be a sin. If your wife was to get remarried she would be an adulteress either way. If no adultery was involved on her part she became an adulterous with her second husband because of the divorce. If she did commit adultery then she was already living in adultery thus she made her self to be an adulteress. In a brief moment I will show why Yeshua (Jesus) is confirming the law of Moses, not bashing it. Before moving on to the teachings about divorce and remarriage in the law of Moses I wish to use more passages from the gospels.

Yeshua the proper hebrew name of Jesus!

Yeshua the proper hebrew name of Jesus!

Matthew 19:3-12
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
3 Some Pharisees came to Jesus, testing Him and asking, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any reason at all?” 4 And He answered and said, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female, 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.” 7 They *said to Him, “Why then did Moses command to give her a certificate of divorce and send her away?” 8 He *said to them, “Because of your hardness of heart Moses permitted you to divorce your wives; but from the beginning it has not been this way. 9 And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”
10 The disciples *said to Him, “If the relationship of the man with his wife is like this, it is better not to marry.” 11 But He said to them, “Not all men can accept this statement, but only those to whom it has been given. 12 For there are eunuchs who were born that way from their mother’s womb; and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men; and there are also eunuchs who made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. He who is able to accept this, let him accept it.”

This passage is very interesting. It makes it clear that only to those whom the truth has been given can accept the teachings on divorce and remarriage. This passage is another big passage for believers to use to justify remarriage if your spouse has committed adultery. Certainly that excuse is well over used and if someone is a true believer, the believer would be able to forgive their spouse for an act of infidelity and be willing to work out the marriage if the cheating spouse was willing to work it out too. Forgiveness is lacking in most so-called believers who are divorcing their spouses. Most will proclaim they forgive their cheating spouse but refuse to stay with them. If you refuse to work it out when the cheating spouse is willing to work it out, that is not true forgiveness. Sometimes people are truly victims and that is a very sad thing. It is not the victims fault. However that does not mean they should go out and get remarried. That (the victims) is one of the reasons it was so hard for people to accept this teaching. Matthew 19:9 is the point that people use to justify remarriage for causes of adultery. I am going to point out something interesting about verse nine.

Matthew 19:9
New American Standard
9 And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”

The protestant church is like my white rose bush. There are parts that look beautfiul and smell nice but grasp the whole teachings (bush) and you are going to be in a lot pain and trouble. The protestants have many thorns and snares that will bring spiritual destruction upon the souls of their subjects.

The protestants have many thorns and snares that will bring spiritual destruction upon the souls of their subjects.

The word “immorality” where it reads “except for immorality” is not the same greek word as “adultery” as in “commits adultery”. The greek word for immorality is “porneia” and is rarely translated to mean sexual immorality. In most cases it is translated as “idolatry”. The few places where “proneia” is translated as sexual immorality has serious debate on if it actually means sexual immorality or if it means idolatry. The word for adultery that is used to describe sexual immorality while in a state of marriage is the word “molchao”. Why not use the word “molchao” to describe the act that makes divorce permissible instead of the word “porneia” that in most cases is used to describe idolatry? The word proneia is used to indicate idolatry in 160+ cases in the scriptures but is only used to indicate adultery in less than 5 cases. Each case it can be debated if it actually meant adultery or idolatry. The word “molchao” is used for adultery 100% of the time.

It is very possible Yeshua was not even speaking about physical adultery here but idolatry. If Yeshua had used the word for physical adultery in this passage, the banter would have been longer as the law of Moses has rules concerning women caught in adultery. The Pharisees were testing him and had he spoken against the law of Moses concerning a woman caught in adultery, the pharisees would not have relented against him. There was another time they tested him with a woman caught in adultery to see if he would speak against the law of Moses or the law of Rome in John 8:1-11. He spoke against neither and told the woman caught in adultery to go and sin no more. As in do not continue in your wicked ways. More proof that forgiveness of sin does not justify continuing in an adulterous marital union. After these two passages it can be concluded that there are two scriptural grounds for divorce; adultery and idolatry. The next passage I use will show that if the spouse who committed adultery or idolatry is willing to work out the marriage and stay together, then divorce is not permitted according to scripture. Certainly remarriage is not permitted either.

Before getting into the mosaic law I wish to use one last scripture from what is popularly known as the New Testament.

Matthew 5:17 17“Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets.  I did not come to destroy but to complete.

Matthew 5:17 17“Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets.  I did not come to destroy but to complete.

1 Corinthians 7:10-15
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
10 But to the married I give instructions, not I, but the Lord, that the wife should not leave her husband 11 (but if she does leave, she must remain unmarried, or else be reconciled to her husband), and that the husband should not divorce his wife.
12 But to the rest I say, not the Lord, that if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she consents to live with him, he must not divorce her. 13 And a woman who has an unbelieving husband, and he consents to live with her, she must not send her husband away. 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified through her believing husband; for otherwise your children are unclean, but now they are holy. 15 Yet if the unbelieving one leaves, let him leave; the brother or the sister is not under bondage in such cases, but God has called us to peace.

WOW! In the first couple of verses it makes it painfully clear that divorced people are never to get remarried (vs. 11). Of course this was written to a non-hebrew audience. Their culture permitted women to divorce their husbands, unlike hebrew culture. Paul the writer of the epistles to the church of Corinth made it clear that if a person divorced their spouse they are to remain unmarried or be reconciled to their first spouse. He mentioned that is what Yeshua (the Lord) commanded, not Paul himself. (The greek word for Lord in this passage is “Kurios” strongs number 2962 meaning a title of the messiah not the typical YHWH.) Paul goes on to say that it is his belief, that if a believer has a spouse that is a non-believer it is better to stay with that spouse if the unbelieving spouse is willing to stay. Yet they are not condemned as a sinner if they are divorced by a spouse that is unwilling to stay. Bondage in this case means sin. Meaning it is not a sin to be a victim. It doesn’t mean it is permissible to remarry, otherwise Paul and the scriptures would be in contradiction. As most churches point out Paul was an inspired writer and consider his writings just as important as all other scripture. It is hard to believe those same people totally reject his teachings on so many things. In Corinth Greece if you were an unbeliever you were an idolater. There was only two classes in that city, pagans and believers in YHWH and Yeshua. All non-believers in Corinth were suffering from “porneia”. Again Paul makes it painfully clear divorcees are never allowed to be remarried unless they are reconciling with an undefiled spouse.

Wide is the path and broad is the way that leads to hell much like this service road.

Wide is the path and broad is the way that leads to hell much like this service road.

Could Paul be confirming the teachings of Yeshua (Jesus) that a legitimate cause for divorce is to be divorced by an idolatrous spouse that is unwilling to stay with the believer? I think that is the case. Back then a spouse that committed adultery was simply put to death for the crime of adultery. There was never any real need for divorcing a spouse that committed adultery because you did not divorce an unfaithful spouse. You brought your witnesses and had them put on trial for their sin. After the witnesses testified the adulteress was put to death, typically by stoning. Sometimes other methods depending on the area and under which government they lived. (I am not advocating the death penalty for adultery. I am just explaining the culture to which the scripture were written. The Bible is not an american document it is an ancient jewish document.)

Even if you want to keep your belief that it is okay to remarry if you are a victim of adultery. You would still need two or three witnesses or other tangible evidence to prove the adultery before you are able to remarry. Yeshua commands that if one sins against you to go to them first in private to work it out. Then if they are unwilling to work it out to bring one or two witnesses. Then if they are still unwilling to repent have nothing more to do with them, that is spoke of in Matthew 18:15-17. Adultery is a sin against the spouse thus the rule or one or two witness applies. Too many people are living in what they believe are scriptural marriages because they “just believe” their ex-spouse cheated on them. Yet their was no confession by the ex-spouse, nor any evidence to prove their theory. I find the over eagerness of people to divorce their spouse, believing their spouse cheated on them without any evidence is a wicked thing. If they were in the kadosh (holy) spirit of our Elohim YHWH and messiah Yeshua then they would be more patient and forgiving. If they had reason to suspect adultery they should begin an investigation and gather either witnesses or evidence such as pictures from a PI before divorcing their spouse. Again if the cheating spouse is willing to work out the problems and stay, then the one being cheated on has a duty to forgive their spouse and stay with them. Being eager to divorce your spouse without witnesses or evidence is foolish, those people are just looking for an excuse to divorce their spouse and give their children a broken home.

Attitude changes everything!

Attitude changes everything!

Moving on into the law of Moses and how Yeshua confirmed the law of Moses.

Deuteronomy 24:1-4
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Law of Divorce
24 “When a man takes a wife and marries her, and it happens that she finds no favor in his eyes because he has found some indecency in her, and he writes her a certificate of divorce and puts it in her hand and sends her out from his house, 2 and she leaves his house and goes and becomes another man’s wife, 3 and if the latter husband turns against her and writes her a certificate of divorce and puts it in her hand and sends her out of his house, or if the latter husband dies who took her to be his wife, 4 then her former husband who sent her away is not allowed to take her again to be his wife, since she has been defiled; for that is an abomination before the Lord, and you shall not bring sin on the land which the Lord your God gives you as an inheritance
.

In these four verses Moses makes it clear that the second marriage defiled the woman and the first husband is not allowed to take her back. He is not allowed to take her back because the second marriage caused her to be defiled! This confirms the teaching of Yeshua in Matthew 5:31-32 and Matthew 19:3-12 that even though Moses permitted you to divorce because of the hardness of your hearts it was not so from the beginning. Even then the first husband had to find some indecency which means “discovered she was not a virgin as she claimed”. Anyone who divorces their spouse causing them to get remarried, causes their spouse to live in a adulterous marriage. Thus the spouse is defiled from remarriage. Making it clear that remarriage is never permitted, even if you have been forgiven of the sin you must go and sin no more, which means if a man or woman has been defiled by remarriage they must live the rest of their lives alone in order to “go and sin no more”.

I love the Israeli Don't Tread on Me Flag!

I love the Israeli Don’t Tread on Me Flag!

Of course many supporters of divorce and remarriage in the church will say but now that defilement is washed clean by the forgiveness of sin through the atoning blood of Yeshua. Yes, that defilement can be made clean if the divorced spouse leaves the adulterous marriage and lives the rest of their life alone or makes amends to their first spouse after both original spouses defilement was made clean by Yeshua. The sin is divorce and remarriage. If the sin is forgiven and forgotten, the divorce and the re-marriage to the second or third or whatever person is wiped out. Making it straight adultery with no legitimate Elohim (God) ordained union between the divorcee and their new legal spouse. The vows were wiped out to all of the other people because they were sinful. So the second or third or whatever marriage a divorcee is in, is not a legitimate marriage in the eye of YHWH our Elohim! If they continue living in such a way because the first marriage is still in effect, they are continuing to live in sin and are failing to truly repent. The divorce was forgotten as well as the re-marriage. However the first marriage would not be forgotten because the first marriage was not a sin. Does that make sense to you too?

One last piece of scripture and I will wrap this up.

Malachi 2:16
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
16 For I hate divorce,” says the Lord, the God of Israel, “and him who covers his garment with wrong,” says the Lord of hosts. “So take heed to your spirit, that you do not deal treacherously.”

Lamb is a traditional kosher animal eaten on Passover!

Lamb is a traditional kosher animal eaten on Passover!

That passage in Malachi makes it clear that our Elohim hates divorce and views people who commit divorce as being treacherous.

I understand not everyone will be able to accept this teaching and this will make a lot of people mad. I know people who say ”It is easy for you to preach this James because you are still in your first marriage.”. I am still in my first marriage BECAUSE I believe this. I chose to work out our marital problems because I did not believe divorce is acceptable. I have been married almost 4 years. The first year I was terrified that I would fail and have to live the rest of my life alone. If I had the morals of an ally cat and believed in divorce and remarriage, I would not have made it this far in my marriage to Stephanie. I showed these biblical facts to my wife and she believed them too after I showed them to her. We always work on communicating because neither one of us believes it is scripturally sound to divorce one another. Marriage is hard but having this firm foundation has made our marriage last. We grow to love each other more every day. As our Elohim has and is continuing to bless us both with a strong marriage.

Sunflowers are my wife's favorite flowers!

Sunflowers are my wife’s favorite flowers!

I spent many years seeking the perfect wife for me. My wife is not perfect but we are perfect for each other. I never would have married a divorcee. I had to turn down several women because of that issue. My wife was not a believer when we wed. She converted shortly after we got married. I knew she would come around because she had a lot of potential. More than any woman I ever dated. She moved 2000 miles away from everything she ever knew because she loves me and was willing to work out our marital problems with me. My wife is now an amazing believer that openly shares her faith to many women. She stands firm for her convictions and does not back down. It is easy for me to preach this because I decided to get my life in order and on the right track before finding a wife. I decided that I wanted to be one of those people who got married and stayed married their whole life to the same woman. Even if I was divorced I would stand by this message and conviction. Just as some members of my family have done.

It may not be hip or cool to most people but we are happy and joyful in YHWH our Elohim and HaMashiach Yeshua! We don’t have to worry about being offended by reading or hearing messages like this because we decided to make our first marriage be our only marriage. If you have never been married, I strongly urge you to wait until marriage for sex and to make your first marriage work. If you are unmarried and have had sex, I encourage you to stop having sex and wait until marriage to do that again. If you are living in an unscriptural adulterous union, I encourage you to leave that union and dedicate your live to serving YHWH and Yeshua. Take your time to find the right spouse instead of rushing into marriage with a person you will not want to spend the rest of your life with. Look for deeper characteristics in a future spouse because beauty is only skin deep and will fade over time. Once that beauty is gone you only have the spiritual essence of your spouse left. Patience will lead to the ultimate gift and a wonderful marriage if you keep your faith in YHWH our Elohim and HaMashiach Yeshua strong and make it a part of your marriage.

The Importance of Attitude


“At the end of the day attitude can make the difference between life and death.” ~ James Peninger Sr. ©

Attitude- a settled way of thinking or feeling about someone or something, typically reflected in a person’s behavior.

Attitude changes everything!

Attitude changes everything!

My family celebrated hanukkah last month as most of you already know. One of the things we did during hanukkah was read from a book called “Small Miracles of the Holocaust”. It was a book I had already been reading on months before but had been making extremely slow progress. Every time I would read in the book I would start crying. We read more as a family during hanukkah and actually managed to finish the entire book. Hanukkah as many of you know who read my blog regularly or are already familiar with hanukkah is a time to celebrate the miracles in life, big and small, past and present. It seemed very fitting to take the time to remember some of the miracles of the holocaust at that time anyway. Now it is the beginning of the end of the gregorian year 2013 and one of the lessons I took from that time is very fitting to share with you all to help you out in the beginning of the gregorian year 2014.

I had been thinking a lot about the lessons I have taken over the last few months, especially during hanukkah from reading “Small Miracles of the Holocaust”. The big lesson is “attitude changes everything”. The quote at the beginning of this blog came from my own head and I google searched it to see if it had ever been said before and no results came back for that exact quote so I copyrighted it and posted it as a stat update on my wife’s facebook page. It is very true though: “At the end of the day attitude can make the difference between life and death”.

I proudly fly this flag!

I proudly fly this flag!

Most of the victims of the holocaust who perished physically died first spiritually. The thing I mean by spiritual death is that they lost the will to live, they felt less than human because of the torment they endured. Their attitude was one of hopelessness. The nazis were brilliant and wicked. They excelled in demoralizing and dehumanizing every jewish victim to rob them of a positive attitude. The crimes the victims of the nazis endured is heart breaking to say the least. Many of the victims attitude became “How could their Elohim forsake them?”. YHWH never left their side. He was with everyone of them. He allowed them to be tested by satan. A separation of the wheat from the chaff. Another holocaust is going to come, while the first holocaust serves as a warning about what is to come. The next holocaust will be much larger and much worse. Many holocaust survivors have shared their stories. Those stories inspire generations of people and help build their strength and faith.

One story in the book “Small Miracles of the Holocaust” tells the story of a Rabbi who was friendly and was eager to greet everyone with a smile. His love and outreach caused the most vicious anti-semite in his town, to spare his life. The anti-semite had joined up with the nazis and he was the one selecting who would go to the gas chamber and who would go to the labor camps. The rabbi greeted the man at the time of selection in the camp, like he did every day before on his morning walks. The rabbi was past the age of being a workable slave and had some health problems. He would have been sent to the gas chamber had his dedication to loving and reaching out to everyone, including anti-semites had not been so great. That is a miracle and shows that love is more powerful than hate. It is one of the many instances where attitude at the end of the day saved someone’s life, at least temporarily. I do not know if that rabbi survived the labor camps but I do like to think he did.

I love the Israeli Don't Tread on Me Flag!

I love the Israeli Don’t Tread on Me Flag!

Another story is of two young ladies who were about to die in a labor camp. They risked death one shabbat to observe the sabbath. If they had been caught they would have been executed for what the nazis labeled as lazy. They desired to keep the sabbath to honor YHWH and to regain the strength to survive. Their attitude and faith was strong. In turn a miracle was given to them. During that sabbath, nazis came to the camp looking for people to work at a better facility that would not be so grueling. Obviously not every prisoner had a job outside of the camp walls, even though those girls did. Our Elohim led those girls to those nazis that day for the transfer. The nazis doing the transfer had no clue they were skipping their assigned jobs. They were transfered and were able to recover their strength because the work conditions at the new camp and factory was much better than the camp Elohim brought them out of.

God provides for the fowls of the air! He shall provide for those who put their faith in him!

God provides for the fowls of the air! He shall provide for those who put their faith in him!

I wish to share one last story from the book that amazed me. I cried and laughed while reading this story. It was heart warming and very inspiriting to say the least. It is this story that made me want to write this blog about the importance of attitude. The story is about the faith of 50 boys being saved miraculously from the gas chambers. It was pesach (passover). Most camps had a rule that anyone under the age of 16 was to be sent straight to the gas chambers. One camp had a rule of 18 years old. The camp this story is set in, is the one where it was 18 years old. There were 50 boys that were 16 and 17 years old brought into that camp on passover. They were unloaded from the cattle cars and sent to the gas chamber. While in the gas chamber waiting to be gassed and die they decided to hold a seder. A seder is a religious ritual of remembrance and worship on Passover.

They knew they were going to the gas chamber because of their age. They wanted to die singing praises to YHWH our Elohim. The joyful music arose from the gas chamber. The nazis guarding the doors knew the gas should have already killed them. The nazis sent for technicians and the camp commandant. The gas chamber malfunctioned. The camp commandant ordered the door to be opened and one of the young boys was ripped out of the chamber and was asked what was going on. The boy proclaimed: “Today they were being set free from a wicked world of death and despair run by wicked and filthy nazis.”. They were singing praises to the most high Elohim YHWH who would take care of their souls.

Celebrate Passover! Forsake Easter!

Celebrate Passover! Forsake Easter!

That of course enraged the commandant! He ordered all 50 boys into holding cells where he would slowly torture the joy out of them before their death. The next morning the gestapo walked in and ordered all of the 50 boys released so they could be relocated to a work camp before the commandant ever got to torture one of them. It was near the end of the war and the factories were in desperate need of slaves to keep running. The camp commandant did not dare reveal his wicked plans to the gestapo because the commandant would have been in major trouble for trying to stop the gestapo. It was reported that the boys left the camp singing praises to YHWH. It is also reported that all 50 boys survived the holocaust.

Lamb is a traditional kosher animal eaten on Passover!

Lamb is a traditional kosher animal eaten on Passover!

That story was amazing to me because of many things. However something stuck out about the number of boys and the act. All 50 boys sang praises to YHWH when they knew they were going to die. Their attitude was not the normal weeping, wailing, screams, and prayers that filled the gas chamber. It was songs of joy and worship. The gas chamber miraculously malfunctioned, when nothing was found to be wrong with the gas chamber. The next thing is the number 50. There are two things about the number 50 that stuck out like a sore thumb to me in this story. The first is that when Abraham pleaded for the life of Sodom the first thing he asked YHWH was “What if there are 50 righteous men? Will you still destroy the city?”. The second thing is that the number 50 is the number of jubilee or deliverance according to the scriptures and torah. Jubilee means liberty. Leviticus 25 describes the 50th year as a jubilee. At the beginning of the year of jubilee all debt is wiped out and all slaves are to be set free. All slaves are also to be set free once every 7 years according to the Torah. The year of jubilee is proclaimed with a trumpet (shofar) blast on Yom Kippur. The number 50 is mentioned 154 times in scripture. Fifty is also connected with the coming of the kadosh (holy) spirit. The giving of the torah happened 50 days after passover. Just like the kadosh (holy) spirit was given 50 days after Yeshua was crucified on passover.

The 50 boys attitude was not one of: “Why me?”! “Why did Elohim forsake me?”! Their attitude was one of joy in spite of terrible circumstances. One of giving praise in the storm to Elohim. That attitude saved their lives because YHWH heard their songs of praise and spared their lives for His glory!

A very inspiring book no matter what your belief system may be.

A very inspiring book no matter what your belief system may be.

I strongly recommend you pick up a copy of the book “Small Miracles of the Holocaust” from your local bookstore or online or wherever you acquire books from.

Many times throughout our lives we live with a bad attitude. We doubt anything could get better. We doubt we can lose weight or doubt whatever. We put ourselves down too much and never try to lift ourselves or others up. I wrote another blog a while back called “Are you blessing or cursing yourself?”. I recommend you check it out after reading this to learn more about how important attitude really is.

The 10th of Tevet


This is just a real quick update. I know I am running behind on a lot of things and I will try to play catch up on Monday or Tuesday of next week. My blood pressure has been dropping and they are taking me off of my blood pressure medicine because my hypertension has been miraculously cured as well as my weight problem. Now the BP meds are causing my blood pressure to drop low where I am suffering from low energy and dizzy spells. The next few days I am going to be unable to do a lot of online work.

asara-bteves1

At sundown tonight just an hour ago, began Asara B’Tevet (the 10th of Tevet) on the biblical calendar. Some jews fast on this day, some do not. It is a day of commemoration. The 10th of Tevet commemorates the beginning of the siege of Jerusalem by the Babylonians that led to the destruction of the first temple and the Babylonian exile. It is a day to stop and remember not just the punishment of a defiant generation but should serve as a warning to our current defiant generation that refuses to repent. It also commemorates the unknown victims of the holocaust. Yom HaShoah hebrew for Holocaust memorial day is after passover and commemorates all of the victims of the holocaust, both dead and survivors.

The 10th of Tevet we focus on the unknown victims of the holocaust. The people who literally vanished from this earth with no record or knowledge they ever existed. Roughly 2 million jews perished in the holocaust that no one knows their names, births, deaths or stories. It is specifically for those victims that we take this day (10th of Tevet) to either fast or remember the history of what happened. Many people will say kaddish for those 2 million that had no family members and no one to say kaddish for them.

I proudly fly this flag!

I proudly fly this flag!

Kaddish is the mourners prayer after the of the passing of a loved one. I will include the English translation of Kaddish for anyone jew or goyim that wishes to say kaddish for those victims. This is a short message because I have some things to do this evening at home. After the 10th of Tevet, shabbas (no work) will be beginning. Then on Sunday I have some meetings and things to attend too. Hopefully I will be back to normal by Monday or Tuesday. It is traditional to say the kaddish for those 2 million victims on the morning afternoon and evening of the 10th of Tevet with a group of people traditionally 10 men at a kaddish service. If you have no one to say kaddish with feel free to say kaddish alone as an act of respect to people who lost everything at the hands of an evil and ruthless political nut job.

The holocaust is mostly forgotten by most people. However some people still harbor that nazi hatred. Especially across Europe. The most recent anti-semitism and nazi spirit popped up on Romanian TV with people singing a so called christmas carol that glorified the holocaust and made it clear that the only good use for a jew is for fire kindling. Of course the way I repeated it made it sound nice. They are evil people with evil spirits. Please take this day (10th of Tevet) to bring light into this world of darkness and help extinguish that wicked nazi spirt by remembering those victims and honoring them in any way that you can.

Here is the link to that news story about the anti-semitic nazi christmas carol:

English Translation of Mourners Kaddish:

Glorified and sanctified be God’s great name throughout the world which He has created according to His will. May He establish His kingdom in your lifetime and during your days, and within the life of the entire House of Israel, speedily and soon; and say, Amen.

May His great name be blessed forever and to all eternity.

Blessed and praised, glorified and exalted, extolled and honored, adored and lauded be the name of the Holy One, blessed be He, beyond all the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations that are ever spoken in the world; and say, Amen.

May there be abundant peace from heaven, and life, for us
and for all Israel; and say, Amen.

He who creates peace in His celestial heights, may He create peace for us and for all Israel; and say, Amen.

Celebrating Hanukkah 2013 (Let your light shine!)


As I sit in my office typing this to all who subscribe or just stumble onto my blog it is the first day of Hanukkah the festival of dedication in the year 2013. Hanukkah has many names and many spellings. It is one of the most famous hebrew holidays here in America, if not the most famous because of the close proximity to christmas and how it has been assimilated. Hanukkah is not the jewish christmas in any way, shape, form or fashion. Yet it has been deeply assimilated into christmas culture! Of course latkes, jelly doughnuts, dreidel and gelt, along with lighting the menorah are only traditions. None of that is part of the assimilation into christmas culture. Each of those things I listed has deep symbolism for the holiday and how it relates to the story of Hanukkah. Christmas and Easter both have no real symbolism for the events they commemorate. They only have pagan symbolism mixed in with a day they claim is holy. I am not writing this to bash or debate christmas or easter. I am writing this to speak of the celebration of Hanukkah.

Happy Hanukkah!

Happy Hanukkah!

For our family hanukkah is spent mostly with the family in our home. A few nights of hanukkah we have company with others. Last night was our first night of hanukkah celebration. We had a lot of fun without a doubt. We had good treats and good fellowship with our family. My wife kept accusing me of cheating at dreidel because I would land on “gimel” every time! She did it in a loving and joking way. I did land on “shin” once but over all I won the whole game and took a monopoly of the gelt before the first candle burnt out. While my wife was accusing me of cheating, I was proclaiming my Elohim is with me just like the maccabees! It was all a good time for winners and losers alike. We all had a lot of fun! We do not exchange presents because that is not proper for hanukkah because it goes against the anti-assimilation spirit of the festival. We had a fun time with family, bonding together more closely without the worldly materialistic idols that infiltrates the festivals of the goyim!

This morning I woke up and did my morning routine. One of those things is reading the online newspapers I subscribe too. I begin in the eastern parts of the world and work my way westward. The last thing I do is go down for breakfast and read our local news paper. A article in “The Times of Israel” made a very valid point about hanukkah, it made me realize a few things. If the festival of hanukkah is to be compared to any goyim or American festival or celebration it should be compared to the American 4th of July. It is a time when the maccabees, a small band of hebrew rebels defied the greatest empire and most powerful army for their spiritual freedom! The odds were insurmountable! In the words of “The Hunger Games” “The odds were never in their favor”!.

Happy Hanukkah!

I had to throw that one in because a buddy of mine is spending Thanksgiving at the movie theater watching “The Hunger Games” sequel. Just like our American founding fathers were outnumbered and out matched, so was “The Maccabees”. The maccabees stood against insurmountable odds against the most powerful empire and army on the planet at that time called the Greeks. Yet our Elohim YHWH blessed them (Maccabees and the American founding fathers) for wanting freedom of religion. The fight of the American founding fathers did not just bless the rich. It blessed the poor and persecuted, jew and gentile alike! My jewish ancestors realized the miracle of America after the revolutionary war was won by the Americans. They came over here in the late 1700’s when John Adams was president! They could finally live a life without fear of an inquisition or future holocaust! The other half of the family at that time split and went to Israel and became the original zionist!

The article I read that made me realize how it compared to American independence day is titled “Jews have never found glory in war” and it was written by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach in The Times of Israel. It is true that jews do not find glory in war. Even our independence days like hanukkah and modern Israeli Independence Day does not celebrate or promote war! It celebrates the miracles that occurred so that a small group of average people could defeat the most horrendous giants and armies against all odds! The festival of hanukkah is celebrated to commemorate the miracles that happened past and present so the jewish people could worship freely without being forced into paganistic hellenization.

If you feel the need to give gifts on a hebrew holiday, please give gifts on purim to celebrate the victory of Queen Ester. It is far more appropriate than giving gifts on hanukkah!

The spirit of hanukkah is a spirit of anti-assimilation and keeping the faith as pure as possible. It is sad how secular jews, goyim, and professing christians are totally ignorant of this spirit and continue to assimilate into the goyim culture with gift giving, hanukkah bushes, and many other trends that should never be done. Hanukkah should remain pure to the spirit. If you want to give gifts on a hebrew holiday, please do it on “Purim” to celebrate Queen Ester’s victory! That would be far more appropriate than making Hanukkah into a jewish christmas!

It is currently the festival of lights! I encourage you to let your light shine and light up the night to vanquish the darkness that naturally comes during this time of year starting with the blackest and darkest of days “black friday”!

Also please read John 10:22-42 to read about Yeshua (Jesus) celebrating Hanukkah!
