What doth YAHVAH thy Sovereign One require of thee? 

Deu_10:12 And now, Israel, what doth YaHVaH thy Sovereign One require of thee, but to fear YaHVaH thy Sovereign One, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve YaHVaH thy Sovereign One with all thy heart and with all thy soul,
Mic_6:8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth YaHVaH require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy Sovereign One?
James_2:14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
2:16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
1 Jn_3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of Sovereign One, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
Act_8:36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
---- THREE THINGS---
Mat_23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
2Ti_3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of Sovereign One, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2Ti_4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which YaHVaH, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
Tit_3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Pure Spirit;
Gen 15:6 And he believed in YaHVaH; and he counted it to him for righteousness. 
  In the same day YaHVaH made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: 
James_2:23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed Sovereign One, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of Sovereign One.
1Jn_3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
John_16:8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
Rom_3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. (sacrificial Temple laws.)

is Acts 2:38: Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of YaHOSHA Mashiach* for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Pure Spirit.

Romans 8:7: “For the carnal mind is not subject to Torah of YAHVAH, neither indeed can be.”
IsaiYah 8:19-20: “To Torah and the Testimony, if they speak not according to this Word it is because there is no light in them.”

COVENANT:

  The agreement between YAHVAH and the nation of The Chosen ones is commonly referred to as the Old Covenant. The details are found in Exodus chapters 19 through 24. The terms of this covenant are found in chapters 20 through 24. The oath to observe the terms is found in YAHVAH's promises to bless the Hebrews in 
Exodus 23:20 Behold, I send a Messenger before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. 
:23 For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off. 
:24 Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images. 
:25 And ye shall serve YaHVaH your YaHVaH and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. 

:31 And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea even unto the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert unto the river: for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand; and thou shalt drive them out before thee. 
:32 Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. 
:33 They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin against me: for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee. 

 (compare Heb. 6:17-18) and in Hebrews’ reply, 
“Wherein YaHVaH willing more abundantly to show unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: “

Exodus 24:3 And Moses came and told the people all the words of YaHVaH, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, ‘All the words which YaHVaH hath said will we do’. 

Deuteronomy 5:27 Go thou near, and hear all that YaHVaH our Sovereign One shall say: and speak thou unto us all that YaHVaH our Sovereign One shall speak unto thee; and we will hear it, and do it. 
Deu 5:28 And YaHVaH heard the voice of your words, when ye spake unto me; and YaHVaH said unto me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have spoken unto thee: they have well said all that they have spoken. 
Deu 5:29 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! 
Acts 3:25 Kepha said “Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which YaHVaH made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.” We ARE those children.

The curses for disobedience are understood by the "if" in Exodus 19:5, 6 Now therefore, IF ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 
Exo 19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an Pure nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel. 

23:22 But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries 

:33 (It makes the promises conditional.) “They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin against me: for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee.”
The blessings and curses are repeated in Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 27 and 28. The formal ratification is recorded in 
Exodus 24:3 And Moses came and told the people all the words of YaHVaH, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, ‘All the words which YaHVaH hath said will we do’.  
24:10 And they saw the Sovereign One of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness. 
24:11 And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw YaHVaH and did eat and drink. 

“The Chosen ones” (the wife of YaHVaH) agreed to obey YAHVAH (the Husband) in return for various blessings (Ex. 24:3above; 19:5 again 
“Exo 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 
Exo 19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an Pure nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel. “

 23:22 again: “But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries. 
Exo 23:23 For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off. 
Exo 23:24 Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images.”


:31 And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea even unto the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert unto the river: for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand; and thou shalt drive them out before thee. 
Exo 23:32 Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. 


The Hebrew’s Failure (added Laws of Temple Sacrifices, Sin offerings)

  But, as an espoused woman who fails to anticipate ”at the time of the marriage ceremony” what the promise of obedience to her husband entails, The Chosen ones soon fell short. This is why Jeremiah was later to write 

7:22 "For I spake not unto your fathers, nor commanded them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices [compare Exodus 19] 24: But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your YAHVAH, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward. Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt unto this day I have even sent unto you all my servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them: Yet they hearkened not unto me, nor inclined their ear, but hardened their neck: they did worse than their fathers" (JeremiYAH. 7:22 -26).

Hebrews 8:6 “But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant.” This renewed Covenant is spoken of in verse 10:

“For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the YaHVaH; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a Mighty One, and they shall be to me a people”

Hebrews 10:16-29; 13:20
12:24 He is the mediator of the renewed Covenant spoken above. His Spirit will write His Torah in your heart.

SMALL THINGS

Lev 23:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of YaHVaH, which ye shall proclaim to be pure convocations, even these are my feasts. 

Zech 4:10 Zec 4:10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of YaHVaH, which run to and fro through the whole earth. 
Malachi Mal 4:4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 
Mal 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of YaHVaH: 

Matthew 5:19 Least of Commandments? For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 
Mat 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 
Ezekiyl 36: 
Eze 36:24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. 
Eze 36:25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. 
Eze 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. 
Eze 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. 

Romans 11:27 Grafted into Messiah:  
For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. 

The true believer lives by "Scripture only" by what the Word says; not by what the Word does not say. Matt 4:4 and Deut 8:4: But He answered and said, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of The Eternal”.

RESURRECTION:
Matthew 12:38-40, 28:1- He died on the tree Aviv 14 (end of day), count the three nights and days; he arose Aviv 17. Even if he arose Aviv 18 (Sunday of that year), there is no prophecy or indication in scripture that people are to gather on Sunday instead of Sabbath. Matthew 28:1 “In the end of the Shabbat, as it began to grow dusk, came Miriam..” He was already risen.

BAPTISM: Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 
Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of YaHosha Messiah for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Pure Spirit Ruach ha Kadosh. 

1 Cor. 15:1-4. Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand
By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Messiah died for our sins according to the scriptures; 
1Co 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 



SABBATH: Eze 20:11 And I gave them My statutes, and showed them My judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them. 
Eze 20:12 Moreover also I gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am YaHVaH that make them pure. 

Col 2:16 Let no man condemn you therefore in eating, or in drinking, in participation of a festival, or a New Moon, or Sabbaths, 
____________________________________________________________________________ 
2:17 which are a shadow of things to come 'for the whole body of Messiah'." Should be 'but the body of Messiah judge.'

Keeping the true Sabbath and true Pentecost sets us apart from other professed believers. They are indeed "days of difference." 

Ministration of Death: 2 Corinthians 3:6
“And that it is Elohim who has made us complete as administrators of the B’rit 
Chadasha (the New covenant), not created from the letters engraved in the stone tablets, for the letters engraved in stone worked through the death of animals (sacrificial system)(KJV “letter kills”) but the Ruach (the Spirit) 
through the giving of a resurrected life. 
3:7 And if the service (KJV “Ministry of death”) of the Mishkan (the tabernacle) that was written and engraved on stone, 
and that worked through the death of animals, was splendid, so that the sons of Israel could not look at the face of Moshe (Moses) because of the 
brightness of his countenance, the brightness 
of which faded away with time, 
3:8 Then how much more splendid then shall the service through the Ruach (the Spirit) be through that which will never fade away? 
3:9 For if the sacrificial service for atonement through the Mishkan (the tabernacle), that worked through our condemned and fallen state, was splendid, then the service that works through the 
righteousness and resurrected life of Yeshua for our acquittal and pardon (Justification) can only be that much more excellent in its splendor.

3:10 
For even though the Mishkan (the tabernacle) was created as a splendid and majestic thing, its splendor for our atonement was nothing compared to the splendor and excellence that comes through Yeshua’s death and resurrection. 
3:11 
For if that which was temporal and passing away was splendid, then how much more splendid is that going to be that shall remain forever? 
:18 And now we all, with our faces unveiled, can look into a mirror and behold the splendor of the Master whose very same image we are now being transformed into while going from our past splendor in the Mishkan (the Tabernacle) and sacrifices, to our future splendor in Yeshua (YaHOSHA)
through the Spirit. 


Hebrew Apparel
In our study, we should start at the beginning. We will not run first to 1 Corinthians 11 and proclaim, “There it is, it is a shame for a man to cover his head! Therefore Aaron and high priests were guilty of having a covering.” No, we start in the Torah; get the original intent and understanding and let these Scriptures interpret Paul’s writings. In verse fourteen it explains: “Does not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have LONG HAIR it is a shame unto him?” Matthew 9:14 might indicate that Messiah had short hair and never took a Nazarite vow.

Mat 9:21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. 

Matthew 14:34“..they came into the land of Gennesaret. 
And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that
country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased; 
And besought him that they might only touch the hem (tzi-tzi) of His (Messiah’s) garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.” 
Debarim 22:11-12 Fringes/Tziot and purity.

~~~ The Western person is so obsessed with not having to walk in Torah he forgets that YaHVaH wants him to have a joyful life and future. They say it is bondage to wear black hats, beards, tzi tzi's, keep the Sabbaths, New Moons and to eat clean. YaHVaH Creator and Messiah has given us these good judgments for our blessing.  
We ought to love to tithe, attend services, eat the commanded clean foods, and not want to have pagan things. Of course, if a person is not even concerned with the main issue (repentance), why would he worry about repenting from the so-called "minor"? To a true believer, there is no minor commandment.  


YaHVaH's FEASTS

Revelation 19:6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for YaHVaH The Sovereign One omnipotent reigneth. 
Rev 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 
Leviticus 23 does not give a name for the Feast of Pentecost. But in Exodus 23:14-17, the festival is called "the feast of harvest, the Firstfruits of thy labors, which thou hast sown in the field," verse 16. Here again, this passage points out another reason why Pentecost is a "day of difference." Verse 14 tells us that there are three times in a year that we are to keep a feast unto the Eternal. The word "times" in the Hebrew means "feet." There are three pilgrimage feasts during which we are told to move our feet and keep a feast unto the Eternal. These times are Unleavened Bread, Pentecost and Tabernacles.

Fewer still keep the full Feast of Pentecost, which since the Pure Feast day falls on Monday, logically must include at least a three day weekend of Sabbath, Sunday and Monday. If you think this is adding to Elohim's Word, read Exodus 19, especially verses 10-11 which show a three day sanctification period leading up to Pentecost. Leviticus 23 distinctly mentions "the seventh Sabbath" and "the morrow" after it (Sunday). These days leading up to Pentecost are important.
FROM Wavesheaf Day, which is day ZERO, we fully count fifty days. Counting distance or time, we Begin at zero, or if we follow tradition we violate YaHVaH’s Shavout day with the math error.

Most Jews count only 49 days, then keep the next day as Pentecost. Encyclopedia Judaica, article "Commandments, The 613," page 767, says "Starting from the day of the first sheaf (16th of Nisan) you shall count 49 days. You must rest on Shavuot." The scriptural reference is Leviticus 23:15. At least they know how to count, although they have forgotten how many days to count.

Leviticus 23:15-16 says to count or number (same Hebrew word shaphar, Strong's #5608) fifty days, not 49 days. Follow the Word!
 Feast of Trumpets we blow the shofar symbolizing the soon return of Messiah. 1 Thes 4
1Th 4:14 For if we believe that Yahosha died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Yahosha will Elohim bring with him. 
1Th 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of YaHVaH, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of YaHVaH shall not prevent them which are asleep. 
1Th 4:16 For YaHVaH himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of Elohim: and the dead in Mashiach shall rise first: 
1Th 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet YaHVaH in the air: and so shall we ever be with YaHVaH.

MUSIC:
 The Scripture is not set up as a manual with a section devoted exclusively to music. Instead, the Scripture is a source book with over 500 references about music, musicians, singing, and musical instruments.
Consequently, some maintain that some styles of rock music and dancing are appropriate for Assembly today.

A careful study of the function of music in the Old Testament reveals otherwise. For example, in the Temple musicians belonged to the professional clergy, played only on limited and special occasions, and used only few specific music instruments. There was no possibility to turn the Temple service into music festival where any Jewish band could play the pop music of the time. Music was rigidly controlled in the Temple. What is true of the Temple was later true also of the synagogue and the early Assembly. This survey will help us to see that in music, like in all other areas of life, Elohim does not give us the license to "do our own thing."
, the Levites musicians were not singing artist invited to entertain the people at the Temple. They were ministers of music. "These are the men whom David put in charge of the service of song in the house of YaHVaH, after the ark rested there. They ministered with song before the tabernacle of the tent of meeting" (1 Chron 6:31-32). Through their musical service the Levites "ministered" to the people. They are five other instances in the Old Testament were the Levites are said to minister to the people through their music (1 Chron 16:4, 37; 2 Chron 8:14; 23:6; 31:2).

The ministry of the Levites musicians is well defines in 1 Chronicles 16:4: "Moreover he appointed certain of the Levites as ministers before the ark of YaHVaH, to invoke, to thank, and to praise YaHVaH, the Elohim of Israel." The three verbs used in this text, "to invoke, to thank, and to praise," suggest that the music ministry was a vital part of the worship experience of Elohim’s people.

The cymbals consisted of two metal plates with reflexed rims about 10-15 inches wide. When struck together vertically, they produced a ringing, tinkling sound. Some appeal to the use of cymbals to argue that Temple music had a rhythmic beat like rock music today, consequently the Bible does not forbid percussion instruments and rock music in the Assembly today. Such an argument ignores, as Kleinig explains, that "the cymbals were not used by the precantor to conduct the singing by beating out the rhythm of the song, but rather to announce the beginning of the song or a stanza in the song. Since they were used to introduce the song, they were wielded by the head of choir on ordinary occasions (1 Chron 16:5) or by the three heads of the guilds on extraordinary occasions (1 Chron 15:19). . . . Since the trumpets and the cymbals were played together to announce the beginning of the song, the players of both are called the ‘sounders’ in 1 Chronicles 16:42)."15

In his book Jewish Music in its Historical Development, A. Z. Idelsohn notes that in the worship of the Temple only one pair of cymbals were used and that by the leader himself. "The percussive instruments were reduced to one cymbals, which was not employed in the music proper, but merely to mark pauses and intermissions."16 The term "Selah" which occurs in some Psalms to mark the end of a stanza, may indicate the place where the cymbals were struck.

The third group of musical instruments were two string instruments, the lyres and the harps, which were called "the instruments of song" (2 Chron 5:13) or "the instruments of Elohim’s song" (1 Chron 16:42). As indicated by their descriptive name, their function was to accompany the songs of praise and thanksgiving to YaHVaH (1 Chron 23:5; 2 Chron 5:13). The musicians who played the harps and the lyres would themselves sing the song to their own accompaniment (1 Chron 9:33; 15:16, 19, 27; 2 Chron 5:12-13; 20:21).

There were no "Jewish Rock Bands" at the Temple to entertain the people with loud rhythmic music, because the Temple was a place of worship and not of entertainment. Percussion instruments like drums, tambourines, timbrels or tabrets, which were commonly used for making entertainment music, were absent in the Temple music. Only the cymbals were used, but in a limited way. They marked the end of a stanza and the cessation of the singing.

The lesson for us today is evident. Assembly music should be different from secular music, because the Assembly, like the ancient Temple, is Elohim’s House in which we gather to worship YaHVaH, and not to be entertained. Percussion instruments which stimulate people physically through a loud and relentless beat, are inappropriate for Assembly music today as they were for the Temple music of ancient Israel.
A Truth:  
MUSIC SETS THE TONE: Beauty or Ugly
NICE MUSIC CREATES praise and good health. If I could say:
Garbage music causes most people to feel down, depressed, 
Suicidal, despondent, rebellious.
Afro-American, humanists, and many Messiahians and Christians have been attracted to rock music, because they found in it the medium that helps them to express and experience their similar pantheistic/immanent worldview. Each group experiences through rock music, though in different ways, the feeling of being plugged in to something greater than themselves.
The use of rock music in worship is dangerous because it turns the church service into a make-believe fantasy-world in which self-satisfaction is more important than the adoration of a Pure Sovereign Sovereign One.

The mixture of good and evil lyrics in rock music, may well represent an effective satanic strategy to use the good lyrics to lead some Messiahians to accept more readily the evil ones. If all the rock songs dealt only with sex, drugs, and violence, fewer Christians etc. would be attracted to such kind of music. But the fact that some rock songs address legitimate social concerns, this facilitates the acceptance of those rock songs which promote anti-Messiahians values and life-style.
Romans 12:1
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of YaHVaH that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, pure, acceptable unto YaHVaH which is your reasonable service. 

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of The Sovereign One.
