CONFORM TO THE WORD OF YAHVAH the FATHER
STRONG MEAT; Are You Ready?
Hebrews 5:14 "But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil."
In studying the Scriptures it is better to first pray, ascertain needs, then read selected passages to be meditated on. I suggest you start by studying the book of IsaiYah (Isaiah). The books following IsaiYah are even stronger. We believe that Isaiah 8:19-20 is true for all of us today, “To the Law and to the Testimony, if they speak not according to his Word, there is NO light in them”. Many believers are independent-minded and do not rely only on the so-called “Church Fathers” and elders to interpret Scripture. They generally let Scripture interpret itself and by the Pure Spirit. Please take time to consider the Scriptures with nobility. The Bereans searched the so-called "Old Testament" including the Torah.
In answer to the ‘motto of untruth’ "The Law is Jewish": Brethren, all we have to do with YaHVaH is Jewish. Salvation is of the Jews. So if the heart is hard enough to be like those of the middle-ages who were totally anti-Jewish, I must also turn-down the offer of this Jewish Salvation, and of being grafted into YaHVaH, the Olive tree, Romans 11.
Often lately, certain Christian radio speakers deliberately confound the sincere, serious scholar that "The Law was done away with". They might spend eternity in the lake of fire. Let us be careful to not be like errant pop Christian radio stations. Many push the sinful theory that "disobedience pays". Check out many Scriptures that proper obedience brings blessings.
Rom_8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please YaHVaH.
YaHVaH the Father has provided blessings at Passover (Pesach), Pentecost (50 days from the true Wavesheaf) and Tabernacles (Sukkot). These are only once per year as opportunities to grow in favor, retreat from all the hum-drum of the world, and fellowship with our bethrothed Husband (YaHVaH in the flesh) and with the future saints of the Kingdom of YaHVaH.
Praise YaH out of gratitude by willingly and quickly responding to His every Command.
SOME CLAIM THE SCRIPTURES DO NOT MEAN WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT HIS NAME AND HIS FEASTS!
Christian radio speakers who deliberately confuse listeners that "The Law was done away with" may spend eternity in the lake of fire, according to the Book of The Revealation. 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega(Aleph and Tav) the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
Exodus_23:2 Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:
Exodus_23:7 Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.
Let us not follow the crowd to deal treacherously with the weak, the destitute, the down-hearted some homeless precious people.
Strong Meat: Are you ready?
JeremiYaH 12:7 I have forsaken mine house, I have left mine heritage; I have given the dearly beloved of my soul into the hand of her enemies.
12:6 For even thy brethren, and the house of thy father, even they have dealt treacherously with thee; yea, they have called a multitude after thee: believe them not, though they speak fair words unto thee.
12:10 Many (not all) pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.
12:11 They have made it desolate, and being desolate it mourneth unto me; the whole land is made desolate, because no man layeth it to heart.
Psalm_106:38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.
Many times, we follow the tradition of men when we KNOW it is sinful and not Scriptural. Wicked leaders think of ingenious new ways to pursuade men, insult the righteous with their crafty tools and fables and lies seem to be logical at times. This is similar to Jeroboam:
He was the first to change the Feast of Tabernacles/Sukkot, from 7th to the 8th month.
1 Kings_11:28 And the man Jeroboam was a mighty man of valour: and Solomon seeing the young man that he was industrious, he made him ruler over all the charge of the house of Joseph.
13:33 After this thing Jeroboam returned not from his evil way, but made again of the lowest of the people priests of the high places: whosoever would, he consecrated him, and he became one of the priests of the high places.
Amos_7:11 For thus Amos saith, Jeroboam shall die by the sword, and Israel shall surely be led away captive out of their own land.
Tradition sometimes is the evil way that conspires to do away with YaHVaH's Word regarding the Feast Days: Namely Passover, Pentecost (in the summer harvest time) and Tabernacles.
Mark_7:7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Acts 10:28b “..but YaH hath shown me that I should not call any MAN common or unclean”.
Some speakers do despite to the Word by promoting the abomination of eating swine. Peter never did eat a midnight snack. Messiah did not teach against His own Law or that you can bless anything and then eat it. There is no contradiction.
Pagan Holidays: JeremiYah 10 “Learn not the way of the heathen.”
A whole lot of false judgment is going on in the Church saying "Don't judge"
Messiah said in John 7:24 "..Judge righteous judgment."
If you want to share a Scripture to admonish or encourage, do not be a hypocrite.
Matthew 7:5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
1 Co 6:1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?
1Co 6:2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
1Corinthians 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
The last few words of the "old" testament" Malachi 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.
This law, not the added sacrificial temple laws, is our moral compass as we agree with Psalm 19 and Romans 7 that the Torah is spiritual. Romans 8:7 The carnal mind is against the Law of YaHVaH, it is not subject to His Law, neither indeed can be.
Plead the cause of the innocent. Proverbs/Mishle_31:9 Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.
In view of such awesome creation and love by Father YHVH should not we keep the tokens of our virginity pure! Debarim 22
Colossians 2:16 could more likely be addressed to the believers who ARE keeping the Torah. The verbs eating (posis) and drinking (brosis) during His Feasts not to be judged by people who know not the truth and spirit of the Word YaHVaH.
The sacrificial law was our schoolmaster, hard task-master to bring us to Messiah.
Heb/Ibrim 9:8 The Ruach ha Kadosh this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:
Heb 9:9 Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;
Heb 9:10 Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.
Heb 9:11 But YaHOSHA Messiah being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;
Heb 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
The separated Pure Name of YaHVaH, his Commandments (good works in NT), the New Covenant (no Gentile Covenant) and Kosher laws are not for Jews only YaHUDA but for all strangers of Israel.
In view of all the "cheap grace" philosophy coming out of some seminaries and religious radio stations their criticism of commandment abiding believers. They concoct deceiving messages that if possible, could confuse the elect. So.. they might be able to pull the wool over our eyes, but YaHVaH in the end know their wicked thoughts and plots. They are messing with the Creator of this universe.
YaHOSHA Messiah dwells in Jerusalem but also in the hearts of His true elect believers, Pastors and speakers.
There are many speakers whom I could endorse partially: Some Messianic, Orthodox, reformed Baptist, Presbyterian. All of them possibly were attempting to do good at times. I have to agree in part with those who are tired of the filthy politicians, sneaky, tricky, some demonic. It will not solve the problem by voting for wicked leaders. But we can pray for them. Come out of the ball park and the bleachers and come on down to the battlefield and do warfare. Pray to YaHVaH the Father and the Son to cast treacherous demons and their dogma out into the sea.
Pray the blood of Messiah will cover our land and all who trust in Him. There is power in the true and only Name of the Father, YaHVaH.
Deuteronomy/Debarim 18:14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, YaHVaH thy Creator Most High hath not suffered thee so to do.
Shalom. TsephanYah Eber, Teacher
