Yahshua’s Last Nazarite Vow

Yahshua’s Last Nazarite Vow

This week’s Torah portion includes the law of the Nazarite vow. A believer can make a Nazarite vow anytime one wants to separate oneself unto Yahweh, to enhance one’s spiritual life by focusing on one’s spiritual life and fasting something in one’s physical life. Numbers 6:1-4, 13, 20-21 HRB “And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 2Speak to the sons of Israel and you shall say to them, When a man or a woman shall vow a vow, the vow of a Nazarite to be separated to Yahweh: 3He shall separate from wine and fermented drink; he shall not drink vinegar of wine or vinegar of fermented drink; he shall not drink any juice of the grapes; and he shall not eat dry or moist grapes. 4All the days of his separation he shall not eat from all that is made of the vine, from pressed grapes, even to the stem. . . 13And this is the law [Torah] of the Nazarite: when the days of his separation are fulfilled, bring him in to the door of the tent of meeting. . . 20And the priest shall wave them, a wave offering before Yahweh. It is holy to the priest, besides the breast of the wave offering, and besides the leg of the heave offering. And afterward the Nazarite shall drink wine. 21This is the law [Torah] of the Nazarite who vows his offering to Yahweh for his separation, besides that which his hand may get: according to his vow which he vows, so he shall do by the law [Torah] of his separation.”

Did you know Yahshua made a Nazarite vow on the night He was betrayed? He did, during His last Passover seder with His disciples, in Matthew 26:29 HRB “But I say to you, I will not at all drink of this fruit of the vine after thisuntil that day when I drink it new with you in the kingdom of YAHWEH.”

Notice the two parts of the vow that Yahshua made, the oral declaration of what He was not going to do, and the statement of the term of the vow, or how long the vow would last. Has Yahshua been dedicated unto His Father for the last 2,000 years? Yes, of course. Is Yahshua still keeping his vow? I believe so. He has set Himself apart unto Yahweh to intercede for His Church. But there is a day coming when Yahshua will take off His priestly robe and strap His sword on His side and head back to earth to set up His Kingdom, headquartered in Jerusalem.

So, here’s the questions. Why did Yahshua make a Nazarite vow, knowing He was going to physically die within 24 hours? He was under no obligation to make such a vow. He knew He was going to resurrect from the dead three days later, so why not? He knew He could fulfill His vow!! He is the only Person in human history Who can pull off a 2,000 year Nazarite vow! He knew Yahweh’s Law would still be in effect when He returns to earth in the 21st century!! What wave offering do you think our High Priest, Yahshua, will wave before Yahweh on that day? If Yahshua nailed the Law, or Torah, to His execution stake, how will He be able to fulfill His Nazarite vow? Well, obviously, He could not. So, did Yahshua lie? No, I don’t believe so. Did He not mean His vow? I’m sure He meant EVERY word of it. So, what do we conclude from this? The Nazarite Law WAS NOT NAILED TO YAHSHUA’S EXECUTION STAKE!! Oops. Sorry, greasy grace folks. I hope you will be there on your resurrection day to enjoy a glass of wine with your Master when He ends His Nazarite vow! The Law, the Torah, of Yahweh does today, and will forever, STAND!!

When Yahshua made His last longlasting Nazarite vow, He was fulfilling Yahweh’s law. When Yahshua left this earth and returned to heaven, He was fulfilling Yahweh’s law. When Yahshua returns to this earth and sets up His Kingdom, He will be fulfilling Yahweh’s law. My guess is, Yahshua will be fulfilling Yahweh’s law for all eternity. Will you join Him?

How was it that the Apostle Paul said it in 1 Corinthians 11:1 HRB “Be imitators of me, as I am also of Messiah.” Yahshua is the eternal anchor of our soul, because He is anchored in the eternal law of Yahweh. Yahshua will forever be a law keeper, never a law breaker. The world is being crushed under the weight of sin today because the Church at large has abandoned the law of Yahweh. Would you trust a homosexual pastor to run the Kingdom of Yahweh? Would you trust an abortion doctor to run the Kingdom of Yahweh? Would you trust a Satan worshiper to run the Kingdom of Yahweh? Would you trust a world banker or a corrupt politician to run the Kingdom of Yahweh? I hope not. You’d better be trusting the one Man who can keep a simple Nazarite vow for 2,000 years. His word is His bond of covenant, you can depend on Him and Him alone.

Until that day,

Back to the Tower of Babel

Back to the Tower of Babel

The descendants of Nimrod are at it again. Do you ever think about a united one world order, without any influence or mention of Yahweh, your Creator? Trust me, Satan thinks about it all the time. He is planning to rule this entire planet, without Yahweh. Gee, I wonder where the ideas of humanism, communism, fascism, socialism, and paganism come from? If you said the dark, evil mind of Satan, you’d be correct.

Do you remember the story of the Tower of Babel? At one time, everyone on earth spoke the same language. They put their heads together and decided to build a tower to reach heaven, in order to rule the earth, without Yahweh! What a concept. Genesis 11:1-9 HRB “And the whole earth was of one lip and of one speech. 2And it happened, as they traveled from the east, they found a level valley in the land of Shinar. And they lived there. 3And each one said to his neighbor, Come, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. 4And they said, Come, let us build a city and a tower with its top the heavens, and make a name for ourselves, that we not be scattered on the face of all the earth. 5And YAHWEH came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of man had built. 6And YAHWEH said, Behold, the people is one, and the lip one to all of them, and this they are beginning to do, and now all which they have determined to do will not be restrained from them. 7Come, let Us go down and mix up their language so that they cannot understand man’s evil speech. 8And YAHWEH scattered them from there, over the face of all the earth. And they ceased from building the city. 9On account of this its name is called Babel, because YAHWEH mixed up the speech of all the earth there. And YAHWEH scattered them abroad from there on the face of all the earth.”

It was not Yahweh’s will for there to be a one world order of human civil government without Him as the head, therefore He confused the language of the world and created multiple languages, making it more difficult for humans to work together in humanism and evil planning.

Well, Nimrod’s descendants continue in the evil. Google has had translation software for years. Now, Microsoft is perfecting universal real-time translation software. Read this article, with an eye toward the Antichrist ruling the entire world. Universal speech translation will be a powerful tool used by the Antichrist in his quest for world dominance.

http://www.extremetech.com/extreme/183183-microsoft-shows-off-real-time-universal-speech-translator-for-skype

Pray, children of Yahweh, pray. Friends, you will not be raptured off this rock before this powerful software is perfected. It’s supposed to be made a part of Skype during this year of 2014.

Time is short. This powerful software sounds like good news, which it is, if you are a follower of Yahweh desiring to spread the Gospel of Yahshua HaMashiach around the world. At the same time, it’s bad news for those of us who will walk through the Tribulation years, being harassed, crushed, and beheaded by the Antichrist and his religious hoards.

FEAST OF WEEKS – SHAVUOT – PENTECOST – 2014 AD

FEAST OF WEEKS – SHAVUOT – PENTECOST – 2014 AD

Shavuot, or Feast of Weeks, or Pentecost is taught initially in Leviticus 23:9-21 HRB “And YAHWEH spoke to Moses, saying, 10Speak to the sons of Israel, and you shall say to them, When you come in to the land which I am giving to you, and have reaped its harvest, and have brought in the Omer (a sheaf of barley), of the beginning of your harvest, to the priest, 11then he shall wave the Omer (sheaf of barley) before YAHWEH for your acceptance; on the morrow of the Sabbath (we will show this has to be the day after the weekly Sabbath) the priest shall wave it. 12And you shall prepare a lamb in the day you wave the Omer, one without blemish, a son of a year, for a burnt offering to YAHWEH. 13And its food offering shall be two tenths part of flour mixed with oil, a fire offering to YAHWEH, a sweet fragrance; and its drink offering, a fourth of a hin of wine. 14And you shall not eat bread, nor roasted grain, nor fresh ears, until this same day, until you have brought the offering of your Elohim (Divine Ones, the Godhead); it is a never ending statute throughout your generations in all your dwellings. 15And you shall number to you from the next day after the Sabbath, from the day you bring in the sheaf of the wave offering; they shall be seven complete Sabbaths; 16to the next day after the seventh Sabbath, you shall number fifty days; and you shall bring near a new food offering to YAHWEH; 17you shall bring in bread out of your dwellings for a wave offering, two loaves; they shall be of two tenth ephah of flour; they shall be baked with leaven; first-fruits to YAHWEH 18And besides the bread, you shall offer seven lambs, without blemish, sons of a year, and one bull, a son of the herd, and two rams; they are a burnt offering to YAHWEH, with their food offering and their drink offerings, a fire offering of soothing fragrance to YAHWEH. 19And you shall offer one he-goat for a sin offering, and two lambs, sons of a year, for a sacrifice of peace offerings. 20And the priest shall wave them, besides the bread of the first-fruits, a wave offering before YAHWEH, besides the two lambs; they are holy to YAHWEH for the priest. 21And you shall make a proclamation on this same day; it is a holy gathering to you. You shall do no laborious work of service. It is a never ending statute in all your dwellings throughout your generations.”

Since there are only two high holy assembly days during Passover as taught in verses 6-8, the first and last days, the 15th and the 21st, verses 15 and 16 of Leviticus CANNOT be speaking of high holy days during Passover, but of SEVEN weekly Sabbaths!! For the Day of Pentecost/Shavuot to occur on the DAY AFTER the seventh Sabbath, you ALWAYS MUST BEGIN THE 50-DAY COUNT ON THE DAY AFTER THE WEEKLY SABBATH THAT OCCURS DURING UNLEAVENED BREAD. Verse 16 clearly and literally teaches that the Day of Pentecost/Shavuot ALWAYS OCCURS ON A SUNDAY!! Because that is true, then verse 11 MUST TEACH that the wave sheaf offering, or Feast of Firstfruits, or Resurrection Day celebration, MUST ALWAYS OCCUR on a Sunday!

The Hebrews life revolves around Shabbat/Sabbath. Yahweh built this beautiful Feast of Weeks right into our lifestyle!!

The high holy convocation days of the first and last days of Unleavened Bread are not necessarily Sabbath days, unless one of them happens to fall on the weekly Sabbath.

Because of the Law of first mention, Deuteronomy 16:9-10 CANNOT OVERRULE Leviticus 23 teaching, it can only confirm, uphold, or enhance it, Deuteronomy 16:9-10 HRB “You shall number to yourself seven weeks (shabuas/Sabbath weeks, Strong’s # 7620). When the sickle begins to reap in the standing grain, you shall begin to number seven weeks. 10And you shall keep the Feast of Weeks to YAHWEH your Elohim according to the measure of the freewill offering of your hand, which you shall give according as YAHWEH your Elohim blesses you.” In Israel, the grain that is ripening for harvest during the week of Unleavened Bread is barley grain. Deuteronomy 16 makes sure the Hebrews understand that Yahweh is talking about the barley grain harvest, not just any produce. The sickle was used on standing grain. Unleavened Bread should be baked with barley flour!!

Notice, Leviticus 23:11 is speaking of a wave sheaf offering on the Day of Firstfruits, always a Sunday, and verse 17 speaks of two loaves of bread wave offering to take place on the Day of Pentecost, 50 days later. The Feasts and offerings of Passover through Pentecost are pictures and teachings about Messiah Yahshua, His death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and pouring out of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost!! The Holy Spirit is the One Who brings the two loaves of Judah and Israel (Ephraim/Manasseh) back together again in Him! The two loaves wave offering can also represent the Jews and Gentiles becoming the one new man in Messiah, accomplished by the Holy Spirit.

Many saints resurrected around the time of Yahshua’s resurrection. Yahshua may have taken these saints into the heavenly throne room to present to our Father as a real Firstfruits offering!! That is what the sheaf of barley wave offering represents! From one Seed (Yahshua) came many grains of fruit, the saints!

The verse 16 Day of Pentecost, day 50, can always only occur on a Sunday, per the clear plain literal teaching of verse 16, if you ALWAYS only begin your Omer count on a Sunday, the day after the weekly Sabbath that occurs during the week of Unleavened Bread. These Scriptures CANNOT be fulfilled properly any other way. With that said, the Day of Pentecost, 2014 AD, will be on Sunday, June 8th, which we know begins at sundown on Saturday, June 7th. Today’s Sabbath, May 24, is the 5th Sabbath in the 7-Sabbath Omer count.

How do we know all this? Because the New Moon that began this current religious year occurred on March 30th. 14 days later, Passover began at sundown, April 12, just after the weekly Sabbath closed. Therefore, the high holy convocation day of Abib 15, began at sundown on April 13, a Sunday night. Therefore, the Sabbath that occurred during the Week of Unleavened Bread occurred on April 18/19th Friday/Saturday. Abib 21, the 7th day and high holy convocation day of Unleavened Bread, then began on Saturday night of the 19th/ ending on Sunday day of April 20th, the Day of First Fruits, the sheaf of barley wave offering day, and the FIRST DAY of the 50 day Omer count to Shavuot, to occur on June 8th. Therefore, 1st Sabbath = April 26; 2nd Sabbath = May 3rd; 3rd Sabbath = May 10th; 4th Sabbath = May 17th; 5th Sabbath = May 24th; 6th Sabbath = May 31st; 7th Sabbath = June 7th. Day of Pentecost = Sunday, June 8th!! Bake your two loaves of wheat bread and wave em! The wheat harvest is what is occurring around the Day of Pentecost!!

Pope

Pope

As my wife awoke this morning, she heard the rare audible voice of the Father say, “Pope”. That’s all He said to her. Well, that fully woke her up! Of course, my wife felt the urge to check the international news, since the Pope is on a trip to the Middle East, specifically Jordan and Israel. Immediately, the Holy Spirit began speaking Scriptures to her, Luke 23:28-32 HRB “And turning to them, Yahshua said, Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep over Me, but weep over yourselves and over your children. 29For behold, days will come in which they will say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that did not bear, and breasts that did not nurse. 30“Then they will begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us! And to the hills, Cover us!” (Hos. 10:8) 31For if they do these things in a live green tree, what may take place in the dry? 32And coming with him were two others, doers of evil to be killed.” Notice verse 30, we just heard that a 4.2 earthquake hit Israel, as the Pope arrived in Jordan! The quake was felt all the way into Jerusalem. Yahweh is trying to wake His Israeli people up! Look at verse 32, two others arrived in the same plane with the Pope, a Muslim cleric and a Jewish rabbi, from Pope’s Argentina. Folks, at the very least, the Pope is the false prophet of Bible prophecy. He is an imitation Messiah. The Pope’s entire trip is designed to offend, insult, and injure Israel, while lifting up the so-called Palestinian cause. Do not be deceived, Yahweh sees and knows what he’s up to.

Because of Israel’s pagan humanistic secular civil government and the Messiah rejecting hard hearts of the individual Jewish and Muslim Israeli citizens, Yahweh is setting up Israel to receive its final spanking, before Messiah comes. He may very well use the Pope in this discipline. Many Christian and Messianic Christian ministries preach and teach in Israel, but the word being preached may not be hard enough to break their stubborn resistance to Yahweh and the Gospel of Yahshua. Listen to how Jeremiah preached to Judah during their fall to the Babylonians:

Jeremiah 13:1-27 HRB “So says Yahweh to me, Go and buy for yourself a linen girdle, and put it on your loins, and do not put it in water. 2So I bought a girdle according to the Word of Yahweh and put it on my loins. 3And the Word of Yahweh came to me a second time, saying, 4Take the girdle that you bought, which is on your loins, and rise up. Go to Euphrates and hide it there in the cleft of the rock. 5So I went and hid it by Euphrates, as Yahweh commanded me. 6And it happened at the end of many days, Yahweh said to me, Rise up, go to Euphrates and take the girdle from there, which I commanded you to hide there. 7And I went to Euphrates and dug, and I took the girdle from the place, there where I had hidden it. And behold, the girdle was rotted! It was not useful for anything. 8Then the Word of Yahweh came to me, saying, 9So says Yahweh, So I will spoil the pride of Judah, and the great pride of Jerusalem. 10This evil people who refuse to hear My Words, who walk in the stubbornness of their heart, and walk after other gods, to serve them and to worship them, shall even be like this girdle which is not useful for anything.11For as this girdle holds fast to the loins of a man, so I have caused the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah to cling to Me, says Yahweh, to be to Me for a people, and for a name, and for praise, and for glory; but they would not listen. 12So you will speak to them this Word: So says Yahweh, Elohim of Israel, Every skin shall be filled with wine. And they shall say to you, Do we not know full well that every skin shall be filled with wine? 13Then you shall say to them, So says Yahweh, Behold, I will fill all those living in this land, even the kings that sit on David’s throne, and the priests, and the prophets, and all those living in Jerusalem, with drunkenness. 14And I will smash them one against another, even the fathers and the sons together, declares Yahweh; I will not pity nor spare nor have compassion, to keep them from their destruction. 15Hear and give ear; do not be proud, for Yahweh has spoken. 16Give glory to Yahweh your Elohim before He brings darkness, and before your feet stumble on the dark mountains. Yea, while you look for light, He puts it into the shadow of death, setting up deep darkness. 17But if you will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret places for your pride. And my eye shall bitterly weep and run down with tears, because the flock of Yahweh was captured. [See Zechariah 14:2] 18Say to the king and to the queen mother, Humble yourselves, sit down. For the crown of your glory will come down from your head places. 19The cities of the south have been shut up, and none are opening. Judah has been exiled; all of it has been peacefully exiled. 20Lift up your eyes and see those who come from the north. [Russia and Rome are north of Israel!!] Where is the flock that was given to you, your beautiful flock? 21What will you say when He visits you? For you taught them to be rulers over you for a head. Will not birth pangs seize you like a woman bearing? 22And if you say in your heart, Why do these things come upon me? It is because of the greatness of your iniquity. Your skirts are bared; your heels suffer violence. 23Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots? Then also may you do good who are accustomed to doing evil? 24And I will scatter them as the stubble that passes away to the wilderness wind. 25This is your lot, the share of your measure from Me, declares Yahweh, because you have forgotten Me and have trusted in falsehood. [Obamanation, Popery, Islam, democracy, humanism, etc.] 26So I also have stripped off your skirts over your face, that your shame may appear. 27I have seen your adulteries and your whinnying, the plot of your infidelity, your abominations on the hills, in the fields. Woe to you, O Jerusalem! Will you not be made clean? Until when will it still be?

Israel and Jerusalem will suffer woe from their enemies around the globe, until when? Until they repent of their sins and stop rejecting their Creator and King, until they accept their Messiah Yahshua.

Read the following relevant Scriptures with the Pope in the back of your mind: Ezekiel 27-28; Psalm 25; Isaiah 15; Ezekiel 17.

Did you know the Pope, who acts like a king, and is treated like a king, plans to sit in control over David’s tomb? Reread verse 13 above! When Yahweh says He is going to cause people to reel in drunkenness, He’s saying they will fall into deception, derision, delusion, and false teaching. Catholicism is all these things, Chrislam is all these things. Because the Church of Yahshua is mostly apostate, the entire world is about to be immersed into great deception. The tribulation will be upon us before you can be raptured in the blink of an eye!

Continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, but also preach and teach them a clear straight true Gospel of Messiah!! Each Israeli needs to repent and receive Messiah Yahshua as their Savior and King!

Vav Aleph Tav – A Laser Light on the Sacred Calendar

Vav Aleph Tav

A Laser Light on the Sacred Calendar

I somehow came across another Messianic ministry, through Facebook, I believe.

The following two paragraphs are a quote from the Introduction to the Messianic Aleph Tav Scriptures at their website: http://www.alephtavscriptures.com/what-is-the-vavalephtav-%D7%95%D7%90%D7%AA-symbol/

“The Hebrew letter Vav is the sixth letter in the Hebrew Aleph-Bet having the numeric value of six. It is no coincidence that the first time the Hebrew letter Vav is used is in the sixth Hebrew word in Genesis 1:1. Its Babylonian-Hebrew shape is that of a ‘tent peg’ or ‘nail’ and means to hook or bridge and also refers to man. So important was the letter Vav to the scribes that in writing the Hebrew scrolls they began each column of text with the Vav in order to hook the living word to the parchment. There are 304,805 Hebrew letters in the entire Torah, and it is also no coincidence that the Hebrew letter Vav marks the center of the Torah in the word ‘belly’, which is given an oversized Vav in Leviticus 11:42.

Since the Hebrew letter Vav represents the number six, it has long been associated with man who was created on the sixth day, who has to work for six days, and there is appointed to man six millennia (6,000 years) to rule until the coming of Y’shua the Messiah and the 1000 Year Millennial Kingdom. What we find is the majority of the time the Vav/Aleph/Tav ואת Symbol will follow the placement of an Aleph/Tav את Symbol in scripture. Thus it becomes an extension whereby the two Aleph Tav symbols are connected together by the Hebrew letter Vav (ו) in both meaning and purpose, as in Genesis 1:16 And made Elohim את Two Great Lights; the Greater את Light to rule the day ואת the lesser light to rule the night ואת the stars.”

Bill Sanford confirms what Yahweh already showed me. There are two and only two great lights in the heavens used for calendar purposes, the sun and the stars. There is nothing pagan about the sun and stars, unless you choose to worship them. Yahweh created them, and only them, for His calendar. The moon IS NOT MENTIONED in Genesis 1. The lunar calendar thing is a hoax upon the body of Messiah. The vav aleph tav CANNOT be translated as “and”, because there were NO conjunctions in the ancient Paleo Hebrew language. The sun rules the day, the stars rule the night. Simple enough to understand, if you’re willing to throw off your religious spirit long enough to read the Book. The sun and stars are infinitely more stable for use as a calendar base, at least during these few short years of human history.

Until Elijah, John, and Yahshua get back here to straighten us out, I believe we Messianic/Hebrew Roots people will continue to grasp in the dark for calendar solutions. No pun intended. When His glory is revealed, we may not even be able to see the sun, moon, or the stars, so there really is nothing to argue about today.

WHAT’S THE WORST THAT CAN HAPPEN WITH YOUR GIVING?

WHAT’S THE WORST THAT CAN HAPPEN WITH YOUR GIVING?

Let me be frank, this email is a fund raiser. I just want to share with you the Kingdom investment opportunity that we’ve been involved with for the last couple years. Pastor/Evangelist Raj Kishor Karada needs you as a partner with him in his ministry in India. Truthfully, it takes money to grow and sustain Yahshua’s ministries on earth. That money has to come through Yahshua’s believers.

Luke 6:38 HRB “Give and it will be given to you in good measure and pressed down and abundant it will pour into your robe in that measure. For the measure with which you measure, it will be measured to you.”

Ever heard that verse preached in a modern Christian church or on a TV preacher show? Did they ever give you some of the context of that verse? I want to share just a little of the context for Luke 6:38. For starters, Yahshua had just called His twelve apostles, and then began their first group lesson, on love, of course. Look at Luke 6:27-28 HRB “But I say to you, Those hearing: Love your enemies, do good to those hating you, 28bless those cursing you and pray for those insulting you.” Also, take note of Luke 6:35 HRB “But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, and do not cut off the hope of man; and your reward will be great; and you will be sons of the Most High, for He is kind to the evil and the cruel ones.”

Do you realize what these verses are saying? Even if you don’t like, even if you absolutely hate, a Christian minister and his or her ministry, you may still give financially into their ministry, AND YAHWEH WILL CONSIDER THAT YOU HAVE SIMPLY OBEYED HIS COMMAND TO LOVE YOUR ENEMY!! Friend, that is the WORST that can happen to your giving to someone you don’t know personally.

What if it turns out that the so-called Christian minister is a sinner just using you and others? Romans 12:20 HRB “Then “if your enemy hungers, feed him; if he thirsts, give him drink; for doing this you will heap coals of fire on his head.”” Which is a quote from Proverbs 25:21-22 NKJV “If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink; 22For so you will heap coals of fire on his head, And Yahweh will reward you.” Is it soaking in yet? You can’t go wrong giving to Yahweh’s ministers or His ministries.

So why are Christian ministries suffering financially today? 2 Timothy 3:1-7 HRB “But know this, that in the last days disastrous times will be upon us. 2For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, braggarts, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, wicked, 3without natural feeling, addicted to lust, slanderers, without self-control, savage, haters of good, 4traitors, hasty, boasters, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Yahweh, 5having a form of righteousness, but denying the power of it; even turn away from these. 6For of these are those creeping into houses and leading silly women captive, the ones having been heaped with sins, being led away by various lusts, 7always striving to learn, but never being able to come to a full knowledge of the truth.” It’s what some are calling today, HWC, or hearts waxing cold, as Yahshua stated in Matthew 24:12 HRB “And because lawlessness [Torahlessness] shall have been multiplied, the love of the many will grow cold.” Hard-hearted Christians do not please Yahweh or Yahshua, and simply are not obeying Yahweh’s commandments. Do you really need to examine a man’s vital records, his credentials, and maybe even search for possible criminal records, before you give into his ministry? Where’s your faith?

I’ve been walking with Yahweh for over 41 years now, and I’ve never asked anyone for financial support for my ministry. If you can recall that I did, please forgive me, that’s not my policy. I have and will continue to ask for financial support for other ministers and ministries.

Meditate on the Scriptures above. What’s the worst that can happen with your giving? You will be obeying Yahshua’s command to love your neighbor as yourself. You will be loving someone whom you might actually hate, guaranteeing you will be a son of Yahweh. Wow, that’s not such a bad reward, is it? There’s nothing wrong with doing your due diligence, so you know you’re not supporting some Satanist or occultist ministry, but once you’ve done some due research, you have no excuse for not giving something to the minister of Yahweh. Yahweh gives to all men, evil and good. We should strive to be like our Heavenly Father. It’s ok to give to Christian ministers and ministries that you do not know personally, or maybe you haven’t met in person.

Giving a little goes a long way in Yahweh’s Kingdom ministry. For you first world folks, your little is more than a third world person’s much. Mark 12:41-44 HRB “And sitting down opposite the treasury, Yahshua watched how the crowd threw copper coins into the treasury. And many rich ones threw in much. 42And coming, one poor widow threw in two lepta (which is a kodrantes). 43And having called His disciples near, He said to them, Truly I say to you that this poor widow has thrown in more than all of those casting into the treasury. 44For all of them gave from their abundance, but this one cast in from her need. She had cast in everything that she had, all her goods!”

I’ve written before about our boots on the ground pastor evangelist in India, Raj Kishor Karada. He’s about the most honest open believer I’ve met in the last several years. We’ve been supporting his ministry and family for a couple years now. Raja suffers and is persecuted in ways we do not yet understand, though soon we may have our opportunity to experience the same sufferings as Raj and Yahshua. Raja recently sent us pictures of his various IDs and credentials, simply because people in our country don’t believe what people say about themselves. We want proof that someone is legit. Well, Raja sent us a bunch of photos. I’ll try to insert some into this document for your perusal. I encourage you to give to Raja. He travels hundreds of kilometers out into the remote mountains and jungles of India to minister for and with Yahshua. As I’ve stated before, you can transfer funds using www.xoom.com directly into Raj’s bank account. He can access the funds within a day or two. If you would like his bank account information, email me at: anapto2 (at) gmail (dot) com.

Here’s an unedited email we received from Raja this week: “Thank you so much for your prayer. Today I received a call from a young man and he was telling, he is so much inspired by my ministry and now willing to work with me in different villages. Once I had shared about my testimony and vision for bringing revival to every house. My statement was ” May each individual be prayer warrior and every house be house of prayer” I do believe your prayer and God’s plan is working among people to be closer unto God. I am so excited sharing it to you. I love to share all excited work i see in the ministry. I will be sharing with you after 3rd of next month. I wish if I had a camera to take pictures of all my work in the ministry and send you. Please pray so that some one may take pictures and give me. I will be so blessed to speak or chat with you .

yours in His vineyard

So, as Paul would say in Galatians 4:16 HRB “Have I become an enemy to you because I proclaimed to you the truth?”
