The Third Sinner

The Third Sinner

(All Scripture will be quoted from the Unlocked Literal Bible – Sacred Name Version.)

You know the story, Cain was a farmer, Abel was a shepherd. Yahweh accepted Abel’s offering, but not Cain’s, because Cain did not bring the firstfruits of his field to Yahweh. Cain became angry and scowled at Yahweh. Just before Cain killed his younger brother Abel, Yahweh spoke these words to him: Genesis 4:7,If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin crouches at the door and desires to control you, but you must rule over it.” (See also Romans 6:1-14) Yahweh told Cain to rule over sin, not to let sin rule over him. Well, he chose not to do that, so he killed his brother, Abel.

Why did Cain not rule over the sin that was inside him? Because he did not have the Holy Spirit of Yahweh residing inside of him. Cain did not honor Yahweh, respect Yahweh, or worship Yahweh properly. Neither did he ask Yahweh how to rule over sin, nor did he ask for the Holy Spirit to help him rule over sin. Cain did not seek Yahweh or His Kingdom first!! What did the Apostle Paul say along these lines? Ephesians 5:18,And do not get drunk with wine, for that leads to reckless behavior. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit,” Why does the Apostle Paul declare we need to be filled with the Holy Spirit? Because the Holy Spirit produces righteous fruit in our spirit, deep in our new nature. Read all of Galatians 5:16-25, but note verses 22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, 23 gentleness, and self-control; against such things there is no law.”

The Holy Spirit in us is the power in us to overcome sin in our lives. He is our power Teacher who teaches us to live righteously by teaching us to just say no to sin and yes to Yahweh, His commands, and His kingdom of righteousness. We say yes to crucifying the sinful nature and He gladly crucifies us in the Spirit. He leads us in Yahweh’s path of righteousness. He is the power in us to resist the devil’s temptations. Read all of James 4:1-12, but note verse 7, “So submit to Yahweh. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

Just so you know, Sunday, June 4, 2017, is the Feast of Shavuot, or Feast of Pentecost. It goes from sundown Saturday night through sundown Sunday. We’ve been counting off 7 Sabbaths towards this wonderful feast. We’re going to celebrate the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai in Arabia, and the giving of the Holy Spirit, 50 days after Yeshua’s resurrection!! Read Acts 2. Pentecost is the perfect time to submit to Yahweh, resist the devil, and ask the Father to fill you with His precious Holy Spirit! If you’ve never been filled before this is a great time to be baptized in the Holy Spirit and begin speaking in tongues. If the Holy Spirit already resides in you, ask Him to fill you up again! We need a new filling every day!! You don’t have to wait for the Feast of Pentecost to come around each year, be filled with the Holy Spirit right now!

Let My Father’s Word Go – Announcing the Unlocked Literal Bible – ULLB.bblx module for e-Sword Bible program

Let My Father’s Word Go

Psalm 138:2I will worship toward Your holy sanctuary, and give thanks to Your name for Your mercy, and for Your truth; for You have magnified Your Word above all Your name.”

Psalm 56:10In the Divine Ones I will praise the Word; in Yahweh I will praise the Word.”

John 1:1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Yahweh, and the Word was Yahweh.”

1 Peter 1:22-25, “Having purified your souls in the obedience of the truth through the Spirit to sincere brotherly love, love one another fervently out of a pure heart, 23being regenerated, not by corruptible seed, but incorruptible, through the living Word of Yahweh, which abides forever. 24Because “All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of men as the flower of grass; the grass was dried, and its flower fell out, 25but the Word of Yahweh remains forever.” And this is the very Word that was announced to you.”

We know Yeshua is the living Word of Yahweh, and that the Word of Yahweh just may be the most important thing in all existence. So it is with great joy, pleasure, humility and honor that I make this announcement today. For the last few months I’ve been working hundreds of hours on building a Bible module to be used in the FREE e-Sword Bible program called the Unlocked Literal Bible, which original work is available at www.unfoldingword.org. The Unlocked Literal Bible appears to be a solid accurate modern translation of the Holy Scriptures. I finished the ULLB.bblx, version 9, e-Sword Bible module on Mother’s Day, May 14, 2017. How appropriate, my Mom is the person who instilled a love of Yahweh’s word deep in my heart. As I remember, she was my first Sunday School teacher.

Have you ever wanted a Bible in a word processing file format that you could just use to spell correct, or correct a poorly translated verse, or type in profuse notes or change the Sacred Name to what you believe it should be? Well, I have, so over the last few decades, I’ve been searching for an electronic version of the Bible that was non-copyrighted, FREE to use, copy, print, change, and publish, etc. In fact, we are commanded as kings under Yeshua to make our own copy of His Word in Deuteronomy 17:18,And it shall be, when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, he shall write for himself a copy of this Torah in a book, from before the priests, the Levites.” The Unlocked Literal Bible is one such Bible, released under the Creative Commons Share Alike 4.0 International Public License. You can review the license at: unfoldingWord.org/license or at: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0

I recently uploaded the Unlocked Literal Bible ULLB.bblx, version 9, Bible module to www.biblesupport.com, so you may download it for use in the FREE e-Sword Bible program, now available for PC, Mac, ipad, and iphone. E-Sword also works on Linux with the Wine emulator. On biblesupport.com search Unlocked Literal Bible to download today. The unfoldingword.org logo is also uploaded to biblesupport.com as a ULLB.mapx graphics file. Please download and install both the ULLB.bblx (Bible module) and the ULLB.mapx graphics (logo) file in respect for all the hard work done by the brothers and sisters at unfoldingword.org. They asked that the unfoldingword logo remain with the original unchanged Unlocked Literal Bible. If you change the original content, just remove their logo. If you can’t download the ULLB Bible or logo file from www.biblesupport.com, just ask me at anapto2 at gmail dot com, and I’ll email them to you, or they may just be attached to this announcement email.

The FREE e-Sword Bible program is available for download at www.e-sword.net. After installing the e-Sword Bible program itself, installing e-Sword modules is easier if you first download and install the Module Installer, also available at www.biblesupport.com. All you have to do after downloading a file is double click the module file and it will automatically be installed in e-Sword for you. If the new module doesn’t show up immediately in e-Sword, click on Options/Resource and click the checkbox next to the modules you want to see in e-Sword. You can always install modules manually by copying the files to the e-sword folder under Program Files x86. I have no idea how to install e-sword modules on Macs, ipads, or iphones. Look for Apple support from Rick Meyers at e-sword.net. There are dozens of e-Sword modules available for download from right inside the e-Sword program, some free, some paid. There are thousands of FREE modules available from www.biblesupport.com . Also, there are paid e-Sword modules available at http://estudysource.com/platform/site/homepage/index.aspx

For the brave souls that may want to build their own e-Sword version of the Unlocked Literal Bible, I have the .rtf file for the e-Sword ToolTip Tool NT program that creates the module(s) for e-Sword. Just ask me for the Tooltip NT .rtf file for the ULLB. The ToolTip Tool NT program is also available on www.biblesupport.com.

For your information and perusal, the www.unfoldingword.org folks also have an Unlocked Dynamic Bible, which to me looks more like an amplified version, more texty, verbose, or robust. Download the .pdf file from their website and see what you think.

If you change the original work, just give the proper attribution as shown on their website, and remove their logo.

If you wish to join the translation team, read the requirements on the https://unfoldingword.org/guidelines/ website. Need or want to learn about translating Yahweh’s word? They have an academy: https://unfoldingword.org/academy/

Disciple of Yeshua, Jesus Christ, there is no more excuse for not digging in and feasting on Yahweh’s glorious, eternal, living Word!! Luke 10:26,And He said to him, What has been written in the Torah? How do you read it?”

Partners and donors, if you would like to support this Bible publishing effort, please send your check or Money Order to Fill My Cup Ministries, International, LLC, P.O.
