Kipurym | Reconciliations
The purpose of the sixth Appointment to Meet with God is defined by its name. Yahowah wants to “reconcile” His Covenant Relationship with Yisra’el | Individuals who Engage and Endure with God and Yahuwdah | Beloved of Yah. Yowm Kipurym | the Day of Reconciliations celebrates Yahowah’s upcoming restoration of His relationship with His People.
And while that is great news, the souls of those who ignore, reject, or misconstrue this summons will either cease to exist or be exiled. Therefore, let’s strive to appreciate what the Day of Reconciliations portends for God’s family. And along the way, let’s determine how this day fits within the Almighty’s prophetic timeline.
When one considers the words of the prophets, the picture of Yahowah returning with His beloved son, Dowd | David, to protect His family on Yowm Kipurym takes shape. Many of the prophets speak of it, and some, like Zakaryah / Zechariah and Malaky | Malachi focus upon the events of this day.
Yisra’elites and Yahuwdym, who will have thrown off the yoke of religion, will come to embrace Yahowah, coming to love His name at long last. However, for those who have come to destroy Jerusalem and annihilate Jews, their rendezvous with destiny will not go as they will have 2hoped.
This Mow’ed Miqra’, designated by Yahowah as Yowm Kipurym, has become known as the “Day of Atonement.” Over time, rabbis altered God’s testimony to suggest that “atonement” (which is a religious term for reconciliation) could only be achieved by “afflicting oneself.” As a result, Yahowah’s intended reunion with His people is a time of religious suffering and deprivation whereby Orthodox Jews abstain from all food and drink for 25 hours. It is as if they dread reconciliation.
Our dictionaries tell us that “afflict” is from the Latin afflictare, meaning “to be struck and cast down.” So if God’s purpose is to reconcile fallen man unto Himself, that is the antithesis of the intended result, and it is in direct conflict with Yahowah lifting us up so that we can stand beside Him.
It is God who has endured what rabbis want religious Jews to experience. Yahowah’s soul was afflicted by man, serving as the Passover Lamb, so that we might live. And then on Matsah | UnYeasted Bread, His soul was tormented, cast down and abused, so we would not endure the same penalty.
And yet this profound and essential truth was lost when Kipurym’s purpose was misconstrued to infer that men and women should afflict their souls on this day. I am certain that clerics and translators alike are wrong with regard to man depriving and humbling himself during the sixth Mow’ed Miqra’, but I’ll share the evidence with you such that you can decide how you think we should celebrate God restoring His relationship with His people.
To appreciate Yahowah’s perspective on this day, realize that His Pesach and Matsah sacrifices are behind Him. With Bikuwrym, He is enjoying the result, as His Covenant Family is born. As a proud Father, God has watched His Ruwach Qodesh | Set-Apart Spirit enrich, 3empower, and enlighten His young family on Shabuw’ah, such that the beneficiaries of the Covenant become more capable and more like Him with each passing day.
And then there is the satisfaction of witnessing us perform during Taruw’ah – boldly proclaiming the truth on behalf of His people. And at long last, Yisra’el and Yahuwdah finally respond, reach up to Yahowah and exclaim His name – inviting Him into their lives. All the while, His chosen Mashyach | Messiah is removing the trash, ridding the world of those who have harmed His people – while His Spirit transforms a scarred Earth into the Garden of ‘Eden | Joy!
Imagine observing God’s face for the first time, looking into His eyes, seeing His smile. Relish the feelings which will come over us as we walk up to our Heavenly Father in anticipation of a hug. Consider the thrill of having Yahowah write His towrah | guidance upon our hearts – equipping us to make the most of this opportunity. Think about the songs we will sing, the sights we will see, the people we will meet, the things we will then understand.
That is what will happen on this day. Yowm Kipurym, this Day of Reconciliations, celebrates Yahowah’s long-awaited reunion with His People. It is a welcome home party. As part of His Family, we are prepared for the final step in our journey where we camp out with our Heavenly Father throughout time.
From this perspective, imagine how out of place you would be if in the midst of all of this you said, “Let’s whip ourselves, deny ourselves, and afflict ourselves. Let’s bow down and be religious.” As ridiculous as that would be, why do so many people believe that this is how God wants us to act on Yowm Kipurym | the Day of Reconciliations?
Various dictionaries use “humbled, overthrown, troubled, injured, tormented, and tortured” to define afflict. 4Of those, “humbled and troubled” are the only possibilities which are not somewhat sadistic. Yet humbled is described as “not assertive,” which is the antithesis of Yahowah’s instruction with regard to the terms and conditions of His Covenant, and this Miqra’, as He is calling us to answer a summons. Further, humbled means “low,” which is the opposite result; humbled means to become “insignificant,” which is the byproduct of not heeding His call; and humbled speaks of “submission,” even “surrender,” terms Yahowah routinely denounces.
Moving from afflict to affliction does not help. It is defined as “the cause of persistent pain and distress” and as “great suffering.” That may be the Devil’s means to a grand reunion, but not Yahowah’s.
To understand the actual purpose of this day, and to better determine the means to God’s intended result, let’s turn to the book of Qara’ | Called Out. Missing the point, the religious renamed the book “Leviticus” in the 14th century.
Immediately after concluding His thoughts on Taruw’ah, we find…
“Then (wa) Yahowah (Yahowah – a transliteration of , our ‘elowah – God as directed in His towrah – teaching regarding His hayah – existence) declared the Word (dabar – talked with and spoke to) to Moseh (‘el Mosheh – as the Almighty to the One who Draws Out), saying (la ‘amar – approaching by declaring), (Qara’ 23:26)
‘Exclusively (‘ak – only) during (ba) the tenth (ha ‘asowr – ten; from ‘ashar – to enrich) of the seventh (la ha shaby’iy – seven; from shaba’ – to vow or promise in a solemn oath) month (ha chodesh – time of renewal and restoration and renewing moon) is the Day (ha zeh yowm) of Reconciliations (ha Kipurym – atonements, pardons, and forgiveness; from kaphar – to make reconciliation by purging and covering).
5This (huw’) exists as (hayah – was, is, and will always be (qal imperfect – genuinely without end be)) a set-apart and special (qodesh – a uniquely important and separated, sacrosanct and unchallengeable) Invitation to be Called Out and Meet (Miqra’ – as a welcoming summons to read and recite, to call out and pronounce the name, and to proclaim the purpose of the relationship; from my – to ponder the implications of qara’ – inviting and summoning, meeting and greeting, calling out and proclaiming, reading and reciting) for you all to approach (la ‘atem – for your (plural) benefit).’” (Qara’ / Called Out / Leviticus 23:27 in part)
Excuse me for stating the obvious, but this is the Word of Yahowah, and He just so happens to be God – the Creator of the universe and the Author of life. Therefore, anyone who would discount, circumvent, misconstrue, or replace this testimony with religious jargon is circumventing God’s intent and misleading those who believe them.
We do not very often see a declaration announced with ‘ak, which means “exclusively” and “only.” Therefore, there is something unique about Kipurym – something which will only occur once and on this day.
The numbers designating the timing are instructive in themselves. This is the seventh month, the time of promise. It is the tenth day, symbolizing our enrichment. Seven is conveyed by the Zayin , which depicts a plow removing the weeds while turning over the ground and preparing it to receive nutrients and support new growth when moving in the correct direction. Ten is portrayed by Yahowah’s Yowd Hand reaching down and out to us at this time.
As is the case, however, with the other Mow’ed | Eternal Witnesses, Yowm Kipurym | the Day of Reconciliations, this is a Miqra’ Qodesh | Set-Apart and Special Invitation to be Called out Meet. This designation helps shape our 6appreciation for how it should be observed. It is an opportunity to read and recite the Towrah, to proclaim Yahowah’s name, to invite friends and family to come home with us, to summon God’s people, welcoming them into the Covenant.
Kipur is used eight times, always in the plural form as kipurym. It is based upon the verbal root, “kaphar – to make reconciliation by purging and covering.” This indicates that by purging us of the residue of religious corruption, we are cleansed of its stain and stigma. Then we can be “covered” in Yahowah’s light, coming to appear perfect in God’s eyes.
As reported, kipurym can convey “atonement,” especially if it is cleansed of its religious trappings, because “atone” means “to repair the damage done by an offense by way of expiation.” To expiate is to “extinguish any guilt incurred so as to make amends.” Atonement is therefore “a specific form of forgiveness which includes a pardon and leads to reconciliation.” As such, the name Yahowah assigned to this day is consistent with the message of Passover and UnYeasted Bread. These are related and sequential events, one flowing from the others.
Based upon these insights, kipurym is most accurately translated as “reconciliations,” as “purging” the past to “provide a pardon.” It is a time for “forgiveness” and thus “reconciliation of the relationship.”
To “reconcile” is “to resolve a dispute and to restore rapport.” In the plural form, this is the Day of Reconciliations. God has many sons and daughters, so He is continuing to build His Covenant family. As Kipurym, we find affirmation that Yahowah is reconciling the relationship between all twelve tribes, those of the Northern Kingdom, and Yahuwdah, and also between Yisra’el, Yahuwdah, and Himself.
The Day of Reconciliations is between Yahowah and 7His people – Yisra’el and Yahuwdah. It has nothing to do with gowym. Other than being among those who played a role in announcing Yahowah’s intent regarding Kipurym, and to have perhaps increased the number of beneficiaries, even to have explained the prophetic implications of this day, gowym, like myself, will be celebrants in the audience – nothing more. We will consider ourselves fortunate to be allowed to witness the reunion and to have been adopted into the same family.
There is another, albeit related, aspect of kipurym. Kaporeth, like Kipurym, is based upon kaphar. It is used to describe the “cover” of the Ark of the Covenant which comprises the “Mercy Seat.” It would serve as the place of reconciliation when the priest sprinkled the Kaporeth of the ‘Arown ‘Eduwth seven times with the blood of the sacrifice during the Day of Reconciliations. For context, here is one of the 27 times the kaporeth is mentioned.
“When (wa ba) Moseh (Moseh) went into (bow’ ‘el) the radiant Tent (‘ohel) of the Eternal Witness to the Restoring Appointments (Mow’ed – the continuing testimony regarding the scheduled meetings, occurring during regularly scheduled and specific times to gather together and celebrate the agreement; from mow – this pertains to and ‘ed – eternal witness, everlasting testimony, enduring evidence, and restoring stipulations) to speak (la dabar) with Yahowah (‘eth YaHoWaH), he heard (wa shama’) the voice speaking to him from above (‘eth ha qowl dabar ‘el huw’ min ‘al) the Mercy Seat (Kaporeth – the place of reconciliation, the cover or lid of the Ark of the Covenant, representative of purging the past to cleanse the soul; from kaphar – to purge, cleanse, remove, and cover over in the process of reconciling a relationship) which was beneficially associated with (‘asher ‘al) the Ark (‘Arown) of the Enduring and Restoring Testimony (ha ‘Eduwth – of the eternal witness and everlasting evidence), and for the 8purpose of making the connections to understand (min bayn), the two Karuwbym (shanaym ha karuwbym), speaking with him (wa dabar ‘el huw’).” (Bamidbar / Numbers 7:89)
As a merciful cover, kipurym and kaporeth are symbolic of the Garment of Light provided by the Set-Apart Spirit. She adorns us in it when we become Covenant – giving us the appearance of perfection. This precludes God from seeing the darkness of our shortcomings.
Early on, Yahowah introduced the concept of “covering” something very special to protect it, telling Noach to “kaphar – coat and cover” the Ark inside and out. Then to make sure we would not miss the metaphor, in Bare’syth / Genesis 6:14, He called the Ark being covered and coated a “beyth – family home.” This is relevant because we will soon discover that Yowm Kipurym provides the opportunity to bring Yahowah’s family back together.
At the conclusion of Qara’ / Leviticus 23:27, we also find confirmation that the Day of Reconciliations isn’t for God. It is “la ‘atem – for all of you to approach and draw near.” God has called a meeting, invited the participants, and defined His purpose.
So as not to interrupt Yahowah’s presentation, His Invitation to Yowm Kipurym begins…
“Then (wa) Yahowah (Yahowah) declared the Word (dabar) to Moseh (‘el Mosheh), saying (la ‘amar), (Qara’ 23:26) ‘Exclusively (‘ak) during (ba) the tenth (ha ‘asowr) of the seventh (la ha shaby’iy) month (ha chodesh) is the Day (ha zeh yowm) of Reconciliations (ha Kipurym).
This (huw’) exists as (hayah) a set-apart and special (qodesh) Invitation to be Called Out and Meet (Miqra’) for you all to approach (la ‘atem).
Then, your soul (wa ‘eth nepesh ‘atem – that part of 9you which is capable of being observant and responsive) should respond (‘anah – should answer by replying to the summons, making a declaration after engaging in thought, vocally communicating (piel perfect – the fiery light is responsive and supplies answers when you reply)) and appear before (qarab – coming close and drawing near, presenting yourself while staying in close proximity to) the feminine manifestation of the fiery light (‘isheh – the maternal aspects of God’s light, the adoptive Mother who purifies, enlightens, and elevates) to approach (la – in relation to approaching and moving toward) Yahowah (YaHoWaH – an accurate presentation of the name of ‘elowah – God as guided by His towrah – instructions regarding His hayah – existence).’” (Qara’ / Called Out / Leviticus 23:27)
Our nepesh is our soul, our consciousness. Common to all animals, it is the essence of life, making us aware, able to be observant and responsive. It is precisely what we need to be able to “shamar – observe” the Word of God and “‘anah – respond.”
Yahowah provided humankind with a “neshamah – conscience” to mitigate the soul’s lone inadequacy, giving us the ability to think logically and make reasoned and moral decisions. This is the aspect of our nature that is currently ebbing away, ceasing to be functional in most people.
In the material realm, as mortals, we need both body and soul to function. In the spiritual realm, physical bodies would become an enormous liability, so all that matters for those transitioning from one to the other is our nepesh. It is the repository of almost everything that makes you, you, including your attitudes and aptitudes, your personality and character, the memory of your past experiences and aspirations.
Yowm Kipurym is the sixth step on the path from being 10physical to spiritual, from being mortal to eternal, from being flawed to perfected, and from being limited to liberated. Those who have answered Yahowah’s summons to attend Pesach, Matsah, Bikuwrym, Shabuw’ah, Taruw’ah, and now Kipurym have discovered that these celebrations of life exist for the benefit of our souls, not bodies.
Therefore, Yahowah is summoning souls to answer His invitations to meet with Him. He prepares our souls to enter His presence through contact with the Set-Apart Spirit: the Maternal manifestation of God’s light. And that explains why these instructions were issued in this way.
There is no question that nepesh is used to describe our souls – and for the reasons we have articulated. It is our souls, not our bodies, which benefit from Yahowah’s provisions. And while that sounds simple enough, rabbis have managed to totally misconstrue Yahowah’s intent. In their twisted minds, Jews must deny themselves on this day, doing so in numerous ways, including fasting. Moreover, fasting deprives the body, and God was addressing our soul.
To contravene Yahowah’s intent and negate the ensuing benefits, rabbis had to mistranslate, misrepresent, and misconstrue most of what He said. For example, they turned this…
“Then (wa) Yahowah (Yahowah) declared the Word (dabar) to Moseh (‘el Mosheh), saying (la ‘amar), (Qara’ 23:26) ‘Exclusively (‘ak) during (ba) the tenth (ha ‘asowr) of the seventh (la ha shaby’iy) month (ha chodesh) is the Day (ha zeh yowm) of Reconciliations (ha Kipurym). This (huw’) exists as (hayah) a set-apart and special (qodesh) Invitation to be Called Out and Meet (Miqra’) for you all to approach (la ‘atem). Then, your soul (wa ‘eth nepesh ‘atem) should respond (‘anah) and appear before (qarab) the feminine manifestation of the fiery light (‘isheh) to approach (la) Yahowah (YaHoWaH).’”
“The LORD spoke to Moses, saying: Mark, the tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. It shall be a sacred occasion for you: you shall practice self-denial, and you shall bring an offering by fire to the LORD;” (Jewish Publication Society (JPS) 1985)
In the opening sentence, they ignored the beginning wa, changed YaHoWaH to “the LORD,” inadequately rendered dabar, misspelled Moseh, incorrectly translated ‘ak, ignored ba, and added the first “day” without textual support. In the second sentence, they mistranslated qodesh and Miqra’ – which are the only words which matter. In the third statement, they completely ignored nepesh and mistranslated ‘anah, changing it from “you should respond” to “you shall practice self-denial.” Then they changed the meaning of “qarab – appear before” to “bring.” ‘Isheh, which is either “fire” or “female,” became “offering by fire” (as if that is the fate of women in Judaism). And for bad measure, they replaced YaHoWaH a second time, changing it to Satan’s title: “the LORD.”
Of the 37 words, including prepositions, articles, and conjunctions, in Yahowah’s declaration, there is only one subject to interpretation: ‘isheh. Therefore, other than being dumb, blind, and religious, there is no excuse for the remaining 13 mistakes.
Going out on a limb here, I think we can credit Yahowah with knowing His own name. And since He declared these words to Moseh, methinks men have to be exceedingly full of themselves to replace God’s name with a title of their choosing. But at least they were consistent, and that could be a good thing, had it not served to repeat the same “mistake.”
Misrepresenting qodesh is inexcusable, not only because the word’s meaning is known, not only because it is used to describe so many things special to God, but because 12being “separated” from religion to become “set apart,” and thus “special” to Yahowah, is essential. Qodesh is among the most important concepts to ascertain within Yahowah’s lexicon. God uses it here to underscore the fact that His Miqra’ey are different than religious holidays, making them unique, special, and uncommon. And their purpose is to qodesh us, enabling the transition from religion to relationship. “Sacred,” however, takes the unwary in the opposite direction.
To rob Miqra’ of its relevance by rendering it an “occasion” is a crime. Its very composition begs us to my | ponder the implications of qara’ | being summoned and invited, reading and reciting, being greeted and welcomed, while making proclamations about being called out. How is one to know what to do when the instructions are tossed aside?
And speaking of instructions, perhaps the rabbis can explain why the God who created our nepesh | soul would have used this word as the subject of the sentence, and to describe the invitees, if His intent was for their souls to be excluded? Asked another way, since these words were spoken by God and written in the Towrah by Moseh, what gives man the right to alter His testimony? Do the rabbis actually believe that they are smarter and more articulate than Yahowah?
Translating the next word, ‘anah, is not difficult, and yet the rabbis managed to butcher it. The verb appears over 400 times in the Towrah and Prophets. Especially telling, it is used repeatedly in connection with the Miqra’ey | Invitations. ‘Anah means “to answer, to respond, and to reply,” which is the most intelligent thing to do, indeed the most polite, when receiving a summons or invitation from the Almighty. Further, this is Yowm Kipurym | the Day of Reconciliations, denoting Yahowah’s return on behalf of His family. How dense do the Hasidic have to be to turn such a 13wonderful occasion into a day of deprivation and affliction? Keeping it real, rendering ‘anah as “you shall practice self-denial” requires a level of stupidity that is unfathomable. It is akin to saying, “God is coming to save us, so quick, let’s deny Him the ability to do so.” It is a slap in the face – something rabbis are skilled at achieving.
In the previous chapter, while reviewing Yasha’yah 56, we learned that all who are celebrating this day with Yahowah are joyous. So by misrepresenting ‘anah, rabbis have deliberately excluded themselves from this reunion. Good riddance.
While it is almost always appropriate to translate ‘anah “reply, answer, or respond,” it can be rendered “testify, become a witness, and sing,” or “listen and then speak.” On rare occasions, should the context dictate no other viable option, ‘anah can be rendered “afflict.” For example, in Mitsraym, the Children of Yisra’el were “‘anah – oppressed and suffered” under religious and political persecution. However, since the Miqra’ey exist as God’s means to free His people from such suffering, it is certain that they do not exist to impose misery.
Being “afflicted, disturbed, and oppressed in a state of anxiety and distress, being miserable and wretched, being raped and violated in humility, denying oneself” is not how to celebrate a reunion with God when our relationship is reconciled. If you cannot get this word right in this context, you have no business with God.
As we move on to the next word, qarab is a verb appearing nearly 300 times. Its meaning is so clear that to misrepresent it suggests the intent to deceive. Qarab conveys “to approach, to come and draw near, and to be present in close proximity.” It does not mean, as the JPS published, “bring” or “bring an offering.” To qarab is “to be present,” not “to bring a present.”
14In our initial encounter with ‘isheh or ‘ishah, depending upon the preferred vocalization, I was forthright in explaining the possibilities. The same word, written the same way, is either the feminine variation of fire, the symbol Yahowah used to present Himself to the Children of Yisra’el, or it speaks of a female individual. In the latter case, since Yahowah refers to Himself using ‘ysh | an individual, which is simply the masculine variation of ‘ishah, it would be appropriate to apply the feminine form to the Ruwach Qodesh because the Set-Apart Spirit represents the Maternal aspects of Yahowah’s nature.
While “fire” is germane to ‘isheh, it cannot rationally or etymologically be extrapolated as an “offering made by fire.” Should you be Orthodox, do you actually believe that Yahowah wants us to approach Him bringing gefilte fish flambé or burnt matzah balls? And why would anyone be bringing anything to the fire if the “Day of Atonement” is supposed to be a “fast?” Do the religious suppose that God wants to eat while the faithful are deprived as if replicating the scene in a concentration camp? Is the Hasidic god that perverted – or are they the problem?
Yahowah chose to manifest His presence to the Children of Yisra’el using ‘esh | fire for a reason. Fire provides light. It attracts attention. It is warm and beautiful when approached correctly but can be destructive if abused. We can use fire to remove pathogens from water and to cook food which would otherwise be unpalatable or unsafe. And speaking of safety, fires are used to protect a campsite and to extend our journey into night, giving families the opportunity to commune together, longer. Also, the heat and smoke of a fire rise up to the heavens, symbolic of the Miqra’ey’s purpose. In addition, with the transformation of our nature from physical to spiritual during the Mow’ed, a fire converts organic material into energy – especially light.
This realization and insight may be the principal reason 15Yahowah asked Moseh to scribe ‘isheh – the feminine depiction of fire – into His Invitation. With these metaphors in mind, concepts as familiar to us today as they were 4000 years ago, it is easy to see why Yahowah would ask us to approach Him by way of the purifying warmth, protection, enlightenment, and transformative nature of the Set-Apart Spirit’s fiery light.
The projection of both paternal and maternal characteristics is also as should be expected. God’s focus is on conceiving and raising a family, to which end a Father and Mother are needed. It also helps to clarify that Yahowah’s Beryth | Covenant is like our families, only better. Having a Father and Mother is something we can relate to, while anticipating the expected improvements.
As a seven-dimensional being, Yahowah cannot enter the three-dimensional realm He has created for us without using symbols, probes, projections, messengers, implements, and of course, His words. Fire is symbolic of light – the principal metaphor for Yah’s nature. His nepesh serves as a probe, or projection, of His nature. His Spirit and the mal’ak serve as messengers and implements.
So that you have some appreciation for what Yahowah wants us to overcome by way of these amplified transitions, the Jewish Publication Society was not the only religious institution corrupting the Word of God. The English Standard Bible reads: “It shall be for you a time of holy convocation, and you shall afflict yourselves and present a food offering to the LORD.” The King James Bible presents: “And ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.”
Knowing that “afflict” was wrong, the NASB substituted “humble,” but otherwise only changed “ye” to “you.” The NIV replaced “soul” with “yourselves” and “afflict” with “deny,” as did the NLT, although their 16paraphrase concludes with: “and present special gifts to the LORD.”
If not for my affection for monkeys, I would say, “Monkey see, monkey do.” But monkeys, while sometimes menacing, are never deliberately evil. Changing the words Yahowah used to convey His Invitation to be reconciled, to terminology leading the unwary in the opposite direction, personifies evil.
While I do not claim to be inerrant, I can say for certain that the JPS, ESV, NASB, NIV, and NLT are wrong. But they are not alone. Every popular English Bible made many of the same mistakes. And this is no small point. Yahowah will go on to say that He will destroy the souls of those who fail to answer His summons and appear before the Spirit on this day. And while that may sound harsh, it is actually for the benefit of His children. No one should have to endure an eternity of religious shenanigans.
Continuing on our quest for knowledge, when we search the Word, we discover that ‘isheh’s first use is in Shemowth / Exodus 29:18. While it appears again in Shemowth 29:25, 29:41, and 30:20, Yahowah usually defines His terms in their first application. For those interested in searching other instances of ‘isheh, most are found in Qara’ / Leviticus, beginning in 2:11, 2:16, 3:3, 3:9, 3:11, 3:14 and 3:16. You’ll find ‘isheh again in Qara’ 22:22 and 22:27, and then throughout the Miqra’ey discussion in 23:8, 23:13, 23:25, 23:27. It is rendered twice in 23:26 and in 23:37. Variations of ‘isheh, ‘ishe, and ‘isha are found beginning in Leviticus 1:9, in 23:18, and in 24:9.
Turning to the first use of the word in Shemowth 29:18, we find qatar being written to convey the “burning” of an ‘ayil, or “male sacrificial lamb,” which ‘olah, “rises up to” Yahowah. While ‘olah simply means “to rise,” it is commonly rendered “a burnt offering.” The fact that it is 17deployed 286 times in this context to convey the idea of an uplifting offering is one of the reasons I am reluctant to render ‘isheh the same way. God has a word to describe the nature of an offering which rises. And that word is ‘olah, not ‘isheh.
To fully appreciate the meaning of ‘isheh in Shemowth 29:18, let’s consider its use in the context of the whole verse. God says: “Burn (qatar – rendering as smoke) the entire (kol) lamb (‘ayil) on (‘eth) the altar. It (huw’) rises up (‘olah – as an offering which elevates; from ‘alah – to ascend) toward (la) Yahowah () as the spirit of soothing acceptance (reyach). The Maternal manifestation of the fiery light (‘isheh / ‘ishah) serves as a counselor, conciliating and reconciling (nyhoach – brings acceptance, winning us over, resolving and settling outstanding issues between) us (huw’) to approach (la) Yahowah ().” (Shemowth / Names / Exodus 29:18)
In the context of the sacrificial lamb, of a conciliating and reconciling counselor, of raising us up, and of the soothing spirit of acceptance, “the maternal manifestation of the fiery light” is perfectly appropriate. It defines the role the Set-Apart Spirit plays in resolving the issues that separate us from our Heavenly Father. And I suppose that is why the root of reyach is ruwach – “Spirit.” Furthering this connection, nyhoach is related to nuwach, meaning “to settle down as a beneficiary of amnesty.” And nyhoach speaks of a “conciliatory counselor who makes us compliant” with God.
The only way for us to rise up and be included in Yahowah’s family is through the spiritual transformation facilitated by our Spiritual Mother. This is the meaning behind the Second of Seven Instructions: “Consider your [Heavenly] Father and [Spiritual] Mother significant and worthy so that your days will be prolonged in the [Promised] Land, Yahowah (), your God, gives to 18you as a gift.” (Shemowth / Names / Exodus 20:12)
With all of this considered, I’m comfortable with the following translation…
“Then (wa) Yahowah (Yahowah) declared the Word (dabar) to Moseh (‘el Mosheh), saying (la ‘amar), (Qara’ 23:26) ‘Exclusively (‘ak) during (ba) the tenth (ha ‘asowr) of the seventh (la ha shaby’iy) month (ha chodesh) is the Day (ha zeh yowm) of Reconciliations (ha Kipurym). This (huw’) exists as (hayah) a set-apart and special (qodesh) Invitation to be Called Out and Meet (Miqra’) for you all to approach (la ‘atem). Then, your soul (wa ‘eth nepesh ‘atem) should respond (‘anah) and appear before (qarab) the feminine manifestation of the fiery light (‘isheh) to approach (la) Yahowah (YaHoWaH).’” (Qara’ / Leviticus 23:27)
Continuing on to Yahowah’s next statement regarding the Day of Reconciliations, the source of life says…
“So (wa – therefore), do not perform (lo’ ‘asah – do not expend the effort to do, engaging in) any (kol) of the service of Spiritual Messenger (Mala’kah – of the duties of the Heavenly Representative, Spiritual Counselor, and Maternal Envoy; from feminine of mal’ak – spiritual messenger), during (ba) this life-sustaining and essential (‘etsem – very substantive, exacting, and invigorating, even corporeal) day (ha yowm ha zeh).
Indeed (ky – because), the Day of Reconciliations (Yowm Kipurym – the day of pardons and forgiveness; from kaphar – to make reconciliation by purging and covering) is to (huw’ la) make amends, to pardon and forgive, reconciling the relationship (kaphar – release from guilt, to ransom, having all offenses annulled and removed, to purge and cover over, providing atonement) for you all (‘al ‘atem – over and upon each of you) before the appearance and in the presence of (la paneh) Yahowah (YaHoWaH – 19an accurate presentation of the name of ‘elowah – God as guided by His towrah – instructions regarding His hayah – existence), your God (‘elohym ‘atem).” (Qara’ / Called Out / Leviticus 23:28)
On this day we are invited to enter into the presence of the Maternal manifestation of God’s fiery light so that we can approach Yahowah. The implication is, therefore, that the Mala’kah | Spiritual Counselor will take it from there – doing all that is required. As a result, there is no reason to replicate Her efforts, even if it were possible.
The Set-Apart Spirit is tasked with the responsibility of enveloping us in Her light so that we appear perfect in Yahowah’s presence. Imbued with Her energy, we are not only enlightened and empowered, we also become immortal. That is what makes this day ‘etsem | life-sustaining and essential. Further, as God, Himself, paid the ransom to make amends, the notion of offering God a handful of pocket change for a priceless sacrifice is demeaning and offensive.
Should we not have done our homework and explored the actionable root of kipurym, God comes to the rescue, serving the verb kaphar up for our consideration. It describes what is occurring on Yowm Kipurym: God is making amends by pardoning and forgiving us, reconciling the relationship by paying a ransom to release us from the control of others and from any resulting guilt. On this day all offenses are annulled and removed. We are purged of our every mistake when God’s light covers over the previous darkness, providing atonement.
This thought helps underscore the fact that the religious notion that Jews are “to afflict their souls” on Yowm Kipurym is not only wrong, it is the inverse of Yahowah’s message and plan. The fact is Yahowah allowed His soul to be afflicted on Passover and UnYeasted Bread so that our souls would not be treated this way. He did it for the express 20purpose of reconciling His people unto Himself.
And if I may, considering what Yahowah is offering through kaphar, the JPS notion that “we should deny ourselves” is rendered foolish.
There are two subtle insights here we ought not miss. ‘Etsem, translated “this life-sustaining and essential, very substantive, exacting, and invigorating, even corporeal” day in Qara’ 23:28, conveys the idea that it will be upon Yowm Kipurym that the “essential essence” of Yahowah will be seen along with the “corporeal nature” of Dowd. That is to say, the Day of Reconciliations represents the Miqra’ upon which Yahowah will return. The fact that He is coming to restore His relationship with Yisra’el and Yahuwdym makes this day among the most essential in human history.
‘Etsem also underscores the role of the Set-Apart Spirit because it means “empowering and invigorating,” even “life-sustaining.” It is why there have been two references to Her in Yahowah’s proclamation.
Along these lines, and perhaps as confirmation, we were told that all of this would occur “la paneh – before the appearance and in the presence of” Yahowah. These insights strongly suggest that we should mark our calendars in recognition that Yahowah will be returning with His son, Dowd, on Yowm Kipurym in year 6000 Yah, October 2nd, 2033 at sunset in Yaruwshalaim. Yes, I am extrapolating from these clues – but I have it on good authority.
Because there is only one way to God, a straight path through the seven Invitations to be Called Out and Meet, Yahowah warned…
“Truthfully (ky – indeed, surely, and actually, emphasizing the point), any (kol – every) soul (ha nepesh – individual consciousness, the aspect of a person capable of being observant and responsive) which by association 21(‘asher) does not answer and respond (lo’ ‘anah – does not reply by making a declaration after engaging in thought, vocally communicating (pual imperfect – the object (the nepesh is both the subject and object) suffers the effect of continual non-responsiveness)) during (ba) this life-sustaining and essential (‘etsem – very substantive, exacting, and invigorating, corporeal) day (ha yowm ha zeh), that soul will be cut off and either eliminated or separated (karath – it (she because nepesh | soul is feminine) will be severed, ceasing to exist or banished, excluded and destroyed or exiled per the agreement (nifal perfect – the subject, which is the soul, both carries out and receives the consequence of being karath | cut off at this moment in time)) from (min – out of) being with its family (‘am hy’ – being among and near its (her) people, the community and kinship of living souls).” (Qara’ / Called Out / Leviticus 23:29)
If ever ky was worthy of our attention, surely it is worth emphasizing here. Do not expect to be an exception to this rule. Kol means “all,” and that is all, all means.
While we exist as mortal men and women (or liberal and confused if your preference is for additional non-binary genders), our bodies and souls are integrated such that they are codependent – one ceases to exist without the other. However, when the time comes for our physical nature to submit to our designed mortality, all that will be left will be our nepesh | consciousness. In this life, we tend not to think much of our soul, but in the hereafter, we won’t think much of our bodies.
A nepesh | soul which is karath | cut off from the family of souls either ceases to exist or it is eternally separated and exiled. Karath provides for both outcomes: elimination or banishment.
If separation appears more appealing than ceasing to 22exist, then your perspective is likely corporeal rather than spiritual. When our physical bodies finally yield to life’s ordeals, our soul will endure one of three outcomes.
1) If we have listened to Yahowah, accepted the conditions of the Beryth and attended the Miqra’ey, our nepesh, enveloped in His Ruwach, will ascend to Shamaym to live among the family of souls.
2) If we have ignored Yahowah, and have chosen instead to be political or religious, agnostic or atheist, conspiratorial or otherwise confused or distracted, our soul will simply cease to exist, fading away.
3) If we have opposed Yahowah or His people, and if we have chosen to lead others away from Him or harass them by promoting political, religious, or conspiratorial schemes, then our soul will be sentenced to eternity in She’owl – forever incarcerated in a black hole.
While God is not going to make an exception for the “I’ve lived a good life” plea, or even “I have a good heart,” He is not being entirely rigid in this proposition. The actionable verb, ‘anah, was conveyed in the imperfect conjugation. This means that the moment we stop being stupid by rebuffing Yahowah’s invitation, and choose to respond to His summons, we are good to go – option 1 is in the offing.
Turning to the other verb, not only does karath provide for both eventualities, elimination or exile, it offers yet another contrast. The Covenant was established with the same verb. We are cut into it or cut out of the Beryth based upon our response to Yahowah’s conditions.
Also telling, karath | to cut into or out of, to include or exclude, was shaded by the nifal perfect. In this case, the subject, which is the soul, both carries out and receives the result of being karath | cut off at this moment in time. 23Therefore, whatever fate we choose is the one we are given.
There are two significant challenges translating this Divine declaration out of Hebrew into English. The first is how to treat the feminine noun, nepesh, as it / she is referenced throughout the statement. Should we render ‘asher as “which by association” or “who by association” referencing an object or person? This same question arises again in reference to the verb, karath, which was conveyed in the third person feminine singular, which is either “it” or “she” when addressing an object or person. In this case, for clarity, I wrote “that soul will be cut off and either eliminated or separated” rather than “she” or “it.” And then, when the nepesh | soul goes from being the subject of the sentence to the object of the final concluding verb, we must determine the most accurate way to convey ‘am hy’. Is the best way to communicate the intended meaning to translate the suffixed personal feminine pronoun hy’ as “its,” “her,” or as “soul,” since that is what hy’ is referencing?
The second challenge lies within ‘am, because it can be translated “people,” “family,” or “related kin,” even “community,” or in some cases “ethnicity” or “nation.” Further, pronounced ‘im rather than ‘am, the same two letters serve as an inclusive preposition. While ‘im means “together with” and “among,” I compromised with “‘am hy’ – being with its family” because I think that God’s thought would be more clearly understood with “the community and kinship of living souls.”
With so much at stake, full disclosure and complete transparency are necessary. The more you know, the better, including being aware that languages are exceedingly valuable, and yet imperfect implements.
At this point in our review of Yahowah’s story, it is unlikely that you would be here with us unless you are into the details and possibilities, committed to learning and 24understanding. Also, I suspect that you have come to realize that, when God works through people, He recognizes that they will be incorporated into the presentation. We are people, not machines.
When we consider this presentation of Yowm Kipurym in the context of its fulfillment in Malaky / Malachi, the prophet tells us that, upon the occasion of Yahowah’s return, those who do not revere Yahowah’s name, His Shabat, and His Word will be “uprooted and severed from the land and vine.” It is yet another affirmation that God will return on this day.
Let’s be clear because God is being precise. He is not saying as Christians or Muslims profess: “Obey Me or I’ll torture you in Hell forever.” Instead, He is announcing: “If you ignore My invitations to resolve our differences then your current mortal existence is the only life you will experience.” Further, if you oppose Yahowah, His people, or His intent, you will be held accountable, the consequence of which will be eternal exile. The provision is from God; the choice is ours.
The integrated fabric of the Towrah and Prophets conveys a consistent message: forgiveness and reconciliation are gifts granted by Yahowah. Therefore, for those who think that they can provide for themselves, there is a less desirable option…
“And (wa – therefore) any (kol – every) soul (ha nepesh – individual consciousness, the aspect of a person capable of being observant and responsive) which by association (‘asher) continually attempts to perform any part of the work (‘asah kol – reassigns anything associated with accomplishing the service, engaging to do or continually profit from the endeavors (qal imperfect)) of the Mala’kah | Spiritual Counselor and Maternal Messenger (Mal’akah – Heavenly Envoy and Feminine Representative; from 25mal’ak – spiritual messenger) during (ba) this life-sustaining and essential (‘etsem – very substantive, exacting, and invigorating, corporeal) day (ha yowm ha zeh), that specific and individual soul (‘eth ha nepesh ha huw’ – everything associated with this personal consciousness, the aspect of a person capable of being observant and responsive, including the life and memories) I will eliminate such that it ceases to exist (‘abad – I will exterminate and wipe away, causing to perish, annihilate and destroy, I will squander such that it lacks any value, causing it to be taken away and disappear, expelled by force, driving it from one place to another (hifil perfect – God is directly and literally eliminating or exiling this soul)) from (min – out of) being around the family or striving against the community of living souls (qereb ‘am hy’ – being among its (her) people so that they can neither approach nor remain in conflict with the living).” (Qara’ / Called Out / Leviticus 23:30)
This is a decree against religion, not work. God does not want His people endeavoring to replace the role of the Miqra’ey or Mala’kah in the reconciliation of His people. Even more, He is opposed to rabbis profiting from the pretense that they are somehow essential to being Jewish, ethnically or spiritually, in this life or the next, now or forevermore.
In Judaism, there is no consensus on the mortality of a soul, although God is not confused. Despite what Yahowah conveys, rabbis do not accept the idea of She’owl | Hell serving as a place of eternal separation, and thus punishment, for what they have done to mislead Yahowah’s people. No surprise, there, I suppose. Similarly, there is no consensus on salvation or heaven with rabbis speaking of the redemption of Jews as a race through the religion. To explain away their miserable lives, they claim that their G-d deliberately punishes the most righteous of them so that by comparison whatever follows will seem better. I kid you not. The 26HaShem of Judaism is as perverted as the rabbis.
In previous chapters we have detailed the nature of the Mala’kah | Spiritual Counselor and realize that Her title is derived by making mal’ak | spiritual messenger feminine with the suffixed “ah.” She represents the Maternal aspects of Yahowah’s persona, which are obviously significant because Yahowah’s name is also feminine. Also known as the Ruwach Qodesh | Set-Apart Spirit, the Mala’kah is particularly active during the Mow’ed Miqra’ey – representing Yahowah’s interests by serving us.
‘Abad, rendered “I will eliminate such that it ceases to exist,” is the best possible outcome for those who would contravene the work of the Mala’kah. With ‘abad conveying “I will exterminate and wipe away, causing to perish, annihilate and destroy,” it reinforces everything Yahowah revealed in the previous statement using karath | eliminated or separated. God has put us on notice that a religious soul is a squandered soul, and without value, it will either be taken away and disappear or be driven from mortality to endure immortality in an entirely different place.
Also reinforced were our conclusions regarding “‘am hy’ – being with its family, among the community and kinship of living souls” at the conclusion of Qara’ 23:29. This realization was taken further in Qara’ 23:30, with: “min qereb ‘am hy’ – from being around the family and away from striving against the community of living souls.” God does not want His children exposed to the religious.
During our review of Howsha’s / Hosea’s prophecies regarding Yisra’el and Yahuwdah in an upcoming volume, we will devote an entire chapter to the realization that there are three unique and vastly different outcomes awaiting human souls. At that time, absolute proof will be provided to confirm that some souls will live forever with Yahowah in Shamaym. Some souls will endure an eternity in She’owl 27with Satan, incarcerated within a black hole. But most souls will follow man’s artificial and unreliable, albeit popular, path toward their dissolution – which remains the primary outcome depicted in these statements.
According to this Towrah | Teaching, and hundreds more like it, the fate of a soul is determined based upon whether a person has listened to Yah and responded appropriately. Those who ignore the summons and try to save themselves will find death to be the end of life. But those who deceive, those who corrupt Yahowah’s message and tell people such things as God wants us to “be afflicted, disturbed, and oppressed, existing in a state of anxiety and distress, bending down and being miserable and wretched,” will suffer a fitting, but less desirable, fate. They will spend eternity in a lightless prison designed for similarly religious individuals.
Rabbinical thought on life in either Heaven or Hell is muddled, to say the least. To their credit, rabbis associate their Talmudic ‘Owlam Ha Ba | In the Forever, errantly rendered “the World-to-Come,” with a return to Gan ‘Eden | the Garden of Joy. The thought is that a soul exists in a disembodied state until the time of bodily resurrection in the days of the Messiah.
The best Talmudic story I could find, in which “the World-to-Come” appears to refer to an afterlife, tells of Rabbi Joseph, the son of Rabbi Joshua ben Levi, who dies and returns back to life. “His father asked him, ‘What did you see?’ He replied, ‘I beheld a world the reverse of this one; those who are on top here were below there, and vice versa.’ He [Joshua ben Levi] said to him, ‘My son, you have seen a corrected world.’” (Talmud Bavli, Pesachim 50a)
This is neither clear nor credible, but it was the best I could find. All of the tedium involved in being Hasidic hardly seems worth the effort.
28Since our decision to accept, reject, or ignore Yahowah’s invitation to reconcile our relationship is life or death, acceptance or expulsion, Yahowah decided that warning us twice was not enough and, therefore, reemphasizes this cause and consequence issue a third time.
“Do not consistently or habitually attempt to perform the work (lo’ ‘asah – do not continually reassign that which is associated with accomplishing the service, engaging to do or profit from the endeavors (qal imperfect)) pertaining to anything associated with (kol) the Mala’kah | Spiritual Counselor and Maternal Messenger (Mal’akah – the Spiritual Mother, Heavenly Envoy, and Feminine Representative; feminine of mal’ak – spiritual messenger).
This is an eternal and everlasting (‘owlam – this is a perpetual and enduring, unending and unlimited) clearly communicated and inscribed prescription for living (chuqah – an engraved, written instructions which cut us into the relationship) throughout your generations (la dowr ‘atem) in every situation and dwelling place (ba kol mowshab ‘atem – throughout all time in every household, location, and condition).” (Qara’ / Called Out / Leviticus 23:31)
There is an escape clause and an exception should you be looking for one. With lo’ ‘asah written in the imperfect, all one has to do is stop. The imperfect speaks of habitual and ongoing behavior which ceases to be either when we refrain.
The summons to appear before the Spirit on this day is for every Yisra’elite, in every location, situation, and time. And since an affinity with Yisra’el | Individuals who Engage and Endure with God is required of gowym should they want to share in these same benefits, these instructions apply to everyone else.
Yahowah’s Towrah | Instructions endure forever, and 29they are applicable in every situation and time, so what may I ask is the purpose of the Mishneh Towrah, the Talmud, and Zohar, a New Testament, Church Canon, or Book of Mormon? Better question yet, with this inscribed prescription for living enduring throughout time to reconcile the existing Covenant relationship, what was the purpose of Judaism, Christianity, or Islam – other than to immortalize Akiba, Paul, and Muhammad?
With this in mind, let’s pause here for a moment and consider what has just been said, especially in light of religious instruction regarding the “affliction” of one’s soul on this day. The Beryth and Miqra’ey, as well as the Towrah, Naby’ wa Mizmowr, all convey the essential realization that Yahowah allowed His soul to be humbled and abused so that our souls would not be similarly afflicted. This is His message, and it was His sacrifice and gift. Since we cannot add to it or improve upon it, prudence encourages us to accept it.
As was the case with the Harvest of Trumpets, Yowm Kipurym is a special Shabat, a time for us to celebrate our relationship with Yahowah. It is a day set apart to capitalize upon God’s offer of reconciliation.
“It is for you (huw’ la ‘atem) a Shabatown, an empowering and enriching expression of everything associated with the promise of seven (shabatown – a special set-apart day to revel in and reflect upon the meaning of the Shabat and how during it we are enriched and empowered), a Shabat observance, a seventh day to celebrate with God (shabat – the promise of seven shared on the seventh day).
And so your soul (wa ‘eth nepesh ‘atem – that which is associated with your individual consciousness, the aspect of yourself capable of being observant and responsive) should reply by answering the summons and making a 30declaration (‘anah – should focus on this opportunity and then respond, making a thoughtful announcement).
During (ba) the ninth (tesha’ – the ninth day; from sha’ah – to be observant and hold in high regard, looking forward to the next day) of the month (la ha chodesh – associated with the time of renewal), in the evening (ba ha ‘ereb – at sundown) from (min) sundown (‘ereb – evening) until (‘ad – up to as far as) sunset (‘ereb – evening), you should consistently observe, closely examining and carefully considering (shamar – actually and continually focus upon, literally paying attention to (qal imperfect)) your association with the Shabat (shabat ‘atem – your approach to the promise of the seventh day and how you observe the Shabat).” (Qara’ / Called Out / Leviticus 23:32)
The last time we witnessed the juxtaposition of Shabatown and Shabat was during the introduction of Chag Matsah in Qara’ 23:3. The exact same advice was reprised in anticipation of the second and second-to-last Mow’ed, for Matsah | symbolizing the removal of mitsraym, and for Kipurym | the ultimate reunion. The two most essential and life-sustaining days on Yahowah’s calendar are framed by Shabatown Shabat – an empowering and enriching expression of everything associated with the promise of seven, a special set-apart day to revel in and reflect upon the meaning of the Shabat, celebrating the seventh day with God.
Following the reminder that our soul is best served by replying to Yahowah’s Invitation, we are told something that we do not see elsewhere. Recognizing that Yowm Kipurym is observed on the 10th day of the 7th month, we are being directed to be especially vigilant on the 9th day – particularly with regard to our personal interpretation of the Shabat. It is as if God is telling us that the Shabatown Shabat of Yowm Kipurym is so essential to our standing with Him, that we need to get it right, and that the best way to achieve that 31result is to be properly prepared.
This statement may also be indicating that the tenth day of the month begins when the sun sets on the ninth day. It could be suggesting that we must use the day preceding the Miqra’ to prepare for it, since the party begins as soon as the sun sets.
Also, since this Shabat observance continues from sunset to sunset means that, for the purpose of observation, a day begins and concludes at sundown. This further affirms that days of the week do not reset with each new month, because the seventh day of the weekly Shabat cannot naturally fall on the ninth or tenth of a month if that were the case. This then reaffirms our previous conclusion that a Shabatown is a time for us to observe what the Shabat represents, regardless of the day of the week upon which the Miqra’ey Shabatown may fall.
Prophetically then, as we have learned, the Miqra’ of Yowm Kipurym foreshadows Yah’s return. It celebrates the reconciliation of Yahowah with Yisra’el and Yahuwdym in the waning days of the Time of Ya’aqob’s Troubles.
But unlike Yah’s previous visits, where He presented His soul in the diminished form of a man, this time Yahowah is returning as light. Those who have responded to His summons will be protected by His Spirit and will be saved. Those who come to fight against Him, His people, and His Land will be annihilated. What follows is a detailed review of that time, the people involved, and the consequence of choice.
Here is a summation of Yahowah’s instructions on Yowm Kipurym | the Day of Reconciliations…
“Then (wa) Yahowah (Yahowah) declared the Word (dabar) to Moseh (‘el Mosheh), saying (la ‘amar), (Qara’ 23:26) ‘Exclusively (‘ak) during (ba) the tenth (ha ‘asowr) 32of the seventh (la ha shaby’iy) month (ha chodesh) is the Day (ha zeh yowm) of Reconciliations (ha Kipurym). This (huw’) exists as (hayah) a set-apart and special (qodesh) Invitation to be Called Out and Meet (Miqra’) for you all to approach (la ‘atem). Then, your soul (wa ‘eth nepesh ‘atem) should respond (‘anah) and appear before (qarab) the feminine manifestation of the fiery light (‘isheh) to approach (la) Yahowah (YaHoWaH). (Qara’ 23:27)
So (wa), do not perform or attempt to profit from (lo’ ‘asah) any (kol) of the service of Mala’kah | Spiritual Messenger and Maternal Counselor (Mala’kah) during (ba) this life-sustaining and essential (‘etsem) day (ha yowm ha zeh).
Indeed (ky), the Day of Reconciliations (Yowm Kipurym) is to (huw’ la) make amends, purging that which is offensive to pardon and forgive, reconciling the relationship (kaphar) for you all (‘al ‘atem) before the appearance and in the presence of (la paneh) Yahowah (YaHoWaH), your God (‘elohym ‘atem). (Qara’ 23:28)
Truthfully (ky), any (kol) soul (ha nepesh) which by association (‘asher) does not answer and respond (lo’ ‘anah) during (ba) this life-sustaining and essential, invigorating and corporeal (‘etsem), day (ha yowm ha zeh), that soul will be cut off and either eliminated or exiled (karath) from (min) being with the community and kinship of living souls (‘am hy’). (Qara’ 23:29)
Any (wa kol) soul or individual consciousness capable of being observant and responsive (ha nepesh), which by association (‘asher) continually attempts to perform or reassign any part of the work of, or to make a profit based upon (‘asah kol), the Mala’kah | Spiritual Counselor and Maternal Messenger (Mal’akah) during (ba) this life-sustaining and essential (‘etsem) day (ha yowm ha zeh), that specific and individual soul (‘eth ha 33nepesh ha huw’) I will eliminate such that it ceases to exist or is forcibly expelled (‘abad) from (min – out of) being around the family and striving against the community of living souls (qereb ‘am hy’). (Qara’ 23:30)
Do not consistently or habitually attempt to perform the work (lo’ ‘asah) pertaining to anything associated with (kol) the Mala’kah | Spiritual Counselor and Maternal Messenger (Mal’akah).
This is an eternal and everlasting (‘owlam) clearly communicated and inscribed prescription for living (chuqah) throughout your generations (la dowr ‘atem) in every situation and dwelling place (ba kol mowshab ‘atem). (Qara’ 23:31)
It is for you (huw’ la ‘atem) a Shabatown, an empowering and enriching expression of everything associated with the promise of seven (shabatown), a Shabat observance, a seventh day to celebrate with God (shabat).
And so your soul, the aspect of yourself capable of being observant and responsive (wa ‘eth nepesh ‘atem), should reply by answering the summons and making a declaration (‘anah).
During (ba) the ninth (tesha’) of the month (la ha chodesh), in the evening (ba ha ‘ereb) from (min) sundown (‘ereb) until (‘ad) sunset (‘ereb), you should consistently observe, closely examining and carefully considering (shamar) your association with the Shabat (shabat ‘atem).’” (Qara’ / Called Out / Leviticus 23:32)
Please allow me a moment of digression. Before we 34consider the profound prophetic implications of Yowm Kipurym which God has shared with us for our edification, I want you to appreciate how theologians have robbed so many of His truth by promoting pagan religious schemes. All Saints Day, also known as All Hallows’ Eve, shortened to Halloween, is a direct counterfeit of the actual intended purpose of the Day of Reconciliations. It was originally celebrated as a Celtic festival which focused on the dead. This was the day, or so it was believed, that the deceased tormented the living, plaguing them with diseases and damaging their crops. These spirits needed to be appeased, so costumes were worn by the living to mimic the dead spirits they were trying to placate.
The Celts carved turnips, similar to today’s Jack-o’-lanterns, and placed a candle inside to symbolize the head of the deceased. The story goes that Jack was a drunken Irishman who made a deal with the devil and tricked him by carving a cross into a tree. The devil is said to have cursed Jack, forcing him to wander aimlessly all night carrying a candle inside a hollowed-out turnip.
The tradition of All Hallows’ Eve grew in popularity to the extent that it became part of most European religions. To counter its appeal, Pope Gregory III moved All Saints Day, the Catholic’s necromantic holiday celebrating the dead, from May 9, 11, and 13 to coincide with the pagan festival of All Hallows’ Eve observed on October 31st. Then in 837 CE Pope Gregory IV ordered that its celebration be observed by the entire Church. This move was particularly incriminating, because the timing and history of Lemures, the basis of All Saints Day, is itself a reenactment of the Roman religious observance of Lemuria – where rites were designed to exorcise malevolent and fearsome ghosts from one’s home. The lemurs, or “restless dead,” were given treats to keep them from playing tricks on Roman families.
By way of background, in a reenactment of Romulus 35appeasing the spirit of Remus, religious Romans tossed black beans over their shoulders at night, reciting “With these beans I redeem me and mine” nine times. Everyone in their household would then bang pots repeating, “Ghosts of my fathers and ancestors, be gone!”
So Pope Boniface IV, of the Roman Catholic Church, on the culminating day of the Lemuralia in 610 CE, “consecrated,” which is to say he dedicated and approved for a sacred religious purpose, the high day of pagan spirituality in, of all places, Rome’s Pantheon – the “Home of All Gods.” His dedication was specifically made to “the Blessed Virgin and all the saints,” which I am sure made the goddess for whom Easter is named, and the Madonna was based, very happy.
The worship of dead spirits, or saints, is necromancy, and it is called an abomination by God.
“There shall not be found among you one causing his son or daughter to…participate in magic, fortunetelling, witchcraft,…consulting with dead spirits (sha’al’owb – one who evokes the deceased, the act of calling upon dead spirits for approval and support, praying to saints), or one who beguiles by summoning spirits, one who causes the premature death of others by way of the destructive worship of heathen deities. All who do these things are an abomination, hated and detested by Yahowah.” (Dabarym / Words / Deuteronomy 18:10-12)
The purpose of Christianizing the Roman religious festival was to incorporate popular pagan beliefs into Catholicism, making it easier for the Universal religion to assimilate the masses and thus control them. So as the adherents of Roman sun-god worship were incorporated over time, and there were new pagans to assimilate, All Saints’ Day was moved to October 31st to coincide with the northern European observance of All Hallows’ Eve. It was 36then that Pope Gregory III (731-741) approved and dedicated it, sanctifying it in the Basilica of St. Peter, saying: “It was a day for all saints, and it should be observed as a day of fasting.” The “fasting” aspect of the papal edict most likely arose because the date of All Hallows’ Eve coincides most closely with Yowm Kipurym, the rabbinical day of fasting and self-denial.
The religious holiday, now known as “Halloween,” came to America with the arrival of the Catholic Irish during the potato famine. It has subsequently grown into one of the nation’s most celebrated evenings.
In the process, the pagan necromantic celebration of Halloween has become a wildly popular counterfeit of Yahowah’s sixth Miqra’. In this way, it is identical to another Roman celebration – Dies Natalis Solis Invicti, “the Birthday of the Unconquerable Sun.” The Roman Legions honored Mithras, the Babylonian sun god, and god of Constantine, the founder of Roman Catholicism, on this day. During the reign of Aurelian (in the 3rd century CE), the December 25th observance of the Birthday of the Unconquerable Sun was promoted as an Empire-wide holiday in honor of the Legions and their god. It would serve as the basis for “Onward Christian soldiers! Marching off to war. With the cross of ‘Romans’ going on before.” (The transition from Roman militarism to the Christian religion was aided by fellow Roman, Paul, who told Timothy, “You, therefore, endure hardness, as a good soldier for Jesus Christ.”)
Back in the time of Julius Caesar, the Saturnalia (named after the Roman god, Saturn) was observed on the Winter Solstice which also fell on December 25th. It marked the birth of the son of the sun. This date was chosen because, nine months earlier, the Mother of God and Queen of Heaven, the Madonna known in the Towrah and Prophets as Ashtaroth, was impregnated by the sun on Easter, marked by 37the Sunday nearest the Spring Equinox. This pagan religious holiday featured a bunny who laid colorful eggs, the consumption of ham, and hot cross buns, not unlike the celebration of Easter today. Then continuing to foreshadow Christmas, the Saturnalia, turned Dies Natalis Solis Invicti, was celebrated by exchanging gifts, placing lights on trees cut from the woods, hanging circular wreaths, and burning Yule logs.
These customs, still practiced by the preponderance of Christians, are not popular with God:
“Hear the Word which Yahowah proclaims to you, O household of Yisra’el. Yahowah says: ‘Do not walk, conducting your life, in the ways of the gowym nations (gowym), and do not teach (lamad – or be trained in, becoming accustomed to) the signs or symbols from the sky, for the gentiles are confused and destroyed by them.
For the customs and traditions of the foreign nations (‘amym – estranged people and cultural communities) are delusional. They cut down trees from the forest, the work of their hands with an axe.
They decorate it with silver and gold. They fasten it down so that it will not totter. Their trees are like finely decorated cultic objects. They cannot speak. They cannot walk and must be carried. Don’t revere or venerate them. Indeed, from them, there is…nothing beneficial.’
There is none like you, Yahowah. You are empowering and your great personal and proper name is mighty. Who would not revere You? Indeed, it is your due. For in all of the sages and gentile nations, including their empires and governments, there is none like You.
They are unreceptive, often senseless and destructive, and foolish, lacking understanding in their doctrines and teachings of delusional idols and cultic 38icons made of decorated trees.” (Yirma’yah / Jeremiah 10:1-8)
Cyprian, considered a “Church father,” a wealthy pagan whose writings transformed him into a venerated Catholic “saint,” wrote: “O, how wonderfully acted Providence that on that day on which the Sun was born…Christ should be born.” It is from this kind of irrational and ignorant reasoning that religions are conceived. And that is why the Catholic Encyclopedia asserts that the Sol Invictus Festival has a “strong claim on the responsibility for the date of Christmas.”
Mario Righetti, a renowned Catholic liturgist wrote: “the Church of Rome, to facilitate the acceptance of the faith by the pagan masses, found it convenient to institute the 25th of December as the feast for the temporal birth of Christ, to divert them from the pagan feast, celebrated on the same day in honor of the Invincible Sun, Mithras.” (Manual of Liturgical History, 1955, Vol. 2, p. 67) And through this corruption, turned counterfeit, the meaning and purpose of Sukah | Shelters was lost upon Christians. Even worse, the masses were taught to celebrate the “birth of Jesus,” an irrational impossibility if he were God.
While I cannot predict your reaction to this horrible news, I can tell you that the more I learn, the more I come to dislike the Church for what this Whore has done. It is not an accident that Yahowah’s seven essential days, His Invitations to be Called Out and Meet which embody the Way to Him, were concealed, corrupted, and counterfeited by man’s religious traditions. It is not an accident that the Church’s replacements were all pagan, all based upon the worship of the sun, and all derived from Babylon. One such error would be a bad coincidence. Scores of them are something entirely different.
Let’s continue to assess what Yahowah revealed regarding His return on Yowm Kipurym | the Day of Reconciliations, especially attuned to the role Dowd plays in the reconciliation of God’s relationship with Yahuwdah and Yisra’el. To do so, there are two additional prophecies from Yirma’yah | Jeremiah.
These will be dire days for Yisra’el and Yahuwdym. During the Time of Ya’aqob’s Troubles, anti-Semitism will be worse than during the Second World War. Conspiracy Theorists on the far left and right will be painting God’s People as if they were the Devil’s minions. The tiny nation will be forced to cede control of land, given by Yahowah, to terrorists representing Satan. With the world at war, Muslims and then Communists will target Israel – blaming Jews for everything.
As the world turns dark, environmentally, politically, religiously, militarily, culturally, and conspiratorially, and good judgment becomes as rare as the truth, when all seems lost, Yahowah and His Mashyach will return to save Yisra’el and restore their relationship with Yahuwdah. This, then, is that story…
“The Word (ha dabar – the message communicated) which, to reveal the way to enjoy the benefits of the relationship (‘asher – that, to lead to the path to walk to get the most out of life), came to exist (hayah) with (‘el – from God to) Yirmayahuw (Yirmayahuw – Yahowah Raises and Lifts Up, Yahowah Teaches and Guides, so we should Respect and Revere Yah, commonly transliterated Jeremiah), based upon an association with (min ‘eth) Yahowah (Yahowah – God’s proper designation pronounced as instructed by His towrah – guidance on His hayah – existence and His role in our shalowm – 40reconciliation as our ‘elowah – God), to announce (la ‘amar – to say) (Yirma’yah / Respect Yah / Jeremiah 30:1) that this is what (koh – here, now, at this time, thusly) Yahowah (Yahowah), the God of Yisra’el (‘elohym Yisra’el – the Almighty of those who engage and endure with God), proclaims (‘amar), so as to declare (‘amar – to announce),
‘Of your own volition, write (kathab la ‘atah – choose to literally inscribe, writing down using this alphabet (qal imperative)) all of these words (‘eth kol ha dabarym – every one of the statements and the entire message), which lead to the proper path to get the most out of life, that (‘asher – which reveal the benefits and joy associated with the relationship, that) I have and will be speaking to you (dabar ‘el ‘atah), doing so in a written document (‘el sepher – in an inscribed letter upon a recorded scroll such that there is a written record).’” (Yirma’yah / Yah Teaches / Jeremiah 30:2)
By including kathab and sepher, there is no denying that Yahowah wanted an immediate, written memorialization of His spoken words. This was the only way to maintain the integrity of the message and to share His testimony openly and accurately. By doing so, something exceptional was achieved because those of us who are willing to listen in, and then write these same words down, become a party to their conversation. We are placed in the same position as was the prophet. By immediately transcribing the spoken words of Yahowah into the written Word of God, everyone is provided unencumbered access to the truth.
Yahowah made this possible so that we could get to know Him, appreciate what He is offering, accept what He is requesting, and benefit from the result, independently and directly, with all of the pertinent facts laid out before us. It seems obvious, but it is perhaps still worth mentioning: we’d be wise to capitalize upon what God has done for us.
41There are also numerous insights we can draw from this introduction. First, Yahowah identifies Himself by name and by title, declaring that He is the God of Yisra’el. Second, He prefers to speak first, and for us to listen. Third, Yahowah wants us to write down what He has to say so that we can accurately share it with others. Fourth, Yahowah chooses to communicate to us through the prophets He has chosen. Fifth, Yahowah proves the authenticity of His prophets through the actual fulfillment of their prophecies. Sixth, Yahowah wants us to observe His written word as a collective whole rather than in bits and pieces. His testimony should never be pulled out of context nor truncated to suit anyone’s agenda.
Seventh, Yahowah understands that the written word is less susceptible to alteration and better suited to learning and, therefore, prefers it to the spoken word. Eighth, God knows that the inscribed word facilitates closer examination and more thoughtful consideration, thereby making it easier for us to know Him. Ninth, Yahowah recognizes a document provides a demonstrable record upon which His prophecies can be evaluated and His validity authenticated.
We should also be smart enough to realize that, when some pretentious religious proponent claims that God spoke to him, he is lying. We know this because God had His prophets write down everything He had to say. He used the one name, Yahowah, the nimrods abhor. And because the message the village idiots convey always contradicts, rather than affirms, the proven words of God, they are blowing smoke.
Yahowah’s message endures the test of time. And this time, His words pertain to our time.
“‘Indeed (ky – this is reliable and important), behold (hineh – pay attention), a time is coming (yowmym bow’ – days are approaching),’ prophetically reveals (na’um – 42declares and announces long before it occurs) Yahowah (Yahowah – God’s proper designation pronounced as instructed by His towrah – guidance on His hayah – existence), ‘when I will return to restore (wa shuwb – when I will come back to bring back) the property and possessions taken during the captivity (shabuwth – the assets and fortunes stolen during the imprisonment) of My people (‘am ‘any – of My Family), Yisra’el (Yisra’el – Individuals who Engage and Endure with God) and (wa) Yahuwdah (Yahuwdah – Beloved of Yah),’ declares (‘amar) Yahowah (Yahowah).
‘And then (wa) I will return them, bringing them back (shuwb hem – I will transform them and restore them), to (‘el) the Land (‘erets – the place and territory) that, for the benefit of the relationship (‘asher), I gave (nathan) to their fathers (la ‘ab hem).
They will receive it as their inheritance (wa yarash hy’ – as rightful heirs who were driven out).’” (Yirma’yah / Yah Lifts Me Up / Jeremiah 30:3)
Yah takes exception with the Greco-Roman myth that there is a ‘Palestinian people’ or that ‘Palestine’ is a country. We can be assured there will be one, not two states, established in the Land. Beyond this, after experiencing the diabolical impact of giving the high ground of Czechoslovakia to the Nazis, we should know that appeasing terrorists is a really bad idea.
Further, this prophecy reveals that Yahowah is coming back, and He is doing so to return the land and property He gave to Yisra’el and Yahuwdah. It is their inheritance. God is displeased that so many, beginning with the Egyptians, Assyrians, and Babylons, then Greeks and Romans, followed by Roman Catholics and Muslims, and finally, Progressives and Communists have tried to take His Land from His People.
43I can assure you that God is not stupid nor is He inarticulate. If Yahowah wanted to say that His return would be on behalf of a ‘Church’ and for the benefit of ‘Christians,’ or that He was coming back as ‘Jesus Christ,’ He would have said so.
If God intended to transfer the promises He had made to Dowd, Yisra’el, and Yahuwdah to ‘Jesus,’ ‘Christians,’ and their ‘Church,’ He would not have said that a day was coming when He would return to restore the property and possessions that had been taken from Yisra’elites and Yahuwdym by Gentiles, who routinely imprisoned them. For an informed and rational person, this is a fatal blow to the mythology of Replacement Theology, and thus to the basis of Christianity – even Islam.
It is also lethal to Judaism, a religion which claims that their nameless god is incorporeal and thus incapable of entering our world. Further, these words reunite Yahowah directly with His People, returning what was taken from them by the likes of rabbis acting like gowym.
Since ‘asher continues to play such an important role in this prophecy, when it next appears, it will continue to be fully amplified for our edification. It is, after all, the word which brought us to these words over twenty years ago.
“And these are the words (wa ‘el leh ha dabarym – so God spoke this message) which, to reveal the way (‘asher – that provide directions to enjoy the benefits of the relationship on behalf of the blessed, fortunate, and happy, showing the steps to walk which are correct and yet restrictive which give meaning to life and provide encouragement and joy to those who are properly led and guided by), Yahowah (Yahowah – God’s proper designation pronounced as instructed by His towrah – guidance) spoke (dabar – communicated) concerning (‘el – as God on behalf of) Yisra’el (Yisra’el – Individuals who Engage and Endure 44with God) and (wa) to Yahuwdah (‘el Yahuwdah – concerning Beloved of Yah). (30:4)
This is what (koh – here, now, at this time) Yahowah (Yahowah) conveyed (‘amar), ‘We have heard (shama’) the sound (qowl) of concern over the terrorists and terrorism (charadah pachad – of the horrible anxiety and panic, the overwhelming dread and fear). There appear to be no prospects of reconciliation or peace (wa ‘ayn shalowm – nothing favorable or beneficial, no contentment or satisfaction, no friends nor sense of wellbeing or tranquility).’” (Yirma’yah / Yah Teaches and Guides / Jeremiah 30:5)
This prophecy continually reiterates that Yahowah is speaking about Yisra’el and Yahuwdah. As such, God has not given up on them. He is not going to enrich others at their expense. Yahowah promised to provide to Yisra’el and Yahuwdah that which was stolen by the very Gentiles who are now terrorizing His people.
As we consider what follows, a word of caution. This was directed at Yisra’elites and Yahuwdym who are going about their lives as people have done throughout the centuries. They are living in denial, believing that tomorrow will be like today, and that nothing material is going to change. It is the mindset which made the Holocaust possible, largely because Jews could not fathom the implications of trying to survive in a world that is determined to eradicate them. But these are not ordinary events being foretold. We are entering the Occasion of Restoration and Return foretold through Yowm Kipurym and are entering the Time of Ya’aqob’s Troubles.
If you are a Yahuwd or Yisra’elite, wake up and smell the stench of religiously- and politically-inspired terrorism before you fall victim. Recognize that you are the target. Resolve your conflicts with Yahowah now, because 45tomorrow may be too late.
Addressing the remnant of God’s people…
“‘Please (na’ – it is My desire that you) ask (sha’al – enquire so as to learn) and perceive (wa ra’ah – and see) if (‘im – whether) a knowledgeable man who remembers this (zakar – these truths are properly proclaimed and correctly recalled and not forgotten) should have a child (yalad – should have a baby).
Why then (maduwa’) do I see (ra’ah – do I observe) every virile male (kol geber – all fully functioning and stronger than average young men, especially those considered fighters or who are proud of themselves, and even aggressive females who act masculine) with hands on his genitals (yad huw’ ‘al chalatsym), and accordingly, so many women in labor (ka ha yalad), while every one of their faces (wa kol paneh) has turned (haphak – look overwhelmed and appear distressed) pale and nauseating (la yeraqown – a deathly pallor as if covered in fungus in a basal response to fear)?’” (Yirma’yah / Yah Lifts Me Up / Jeremiah 30:6)
It is an interesting question and telling observation. Why is the population of this planet exploding while its health is imploding? Why are so many fixated on their sexuality, stimulating their bodies instead of their minds?
Please pay attention to this important announcement.
“‘Alas (howy – this warning), truthfully (ky), that day and this time (ha yowm ha huw’ – this period) will be so different and unusual (gadowl – will be so uncommon and important, surprising and astonishing, beyond compare) that there has never been anything similar to it (min ‘ayn kamow huw’ – that it stands apart from all others because there has been nothing remotely like this).
It is the Time of Ya’aqob’s Troubles (wa ‘eth tsarah 46huw’ la Ya’aqob – it is the period of Yisra’el’s anguish and distress, of Jacob’s adversity when Israel will be narrowed, reduced in size, and oppressed in dire straits by vicious foes).
And yet from it (wa min – out of it)b, he [Ya’aqob representing Yisra’el] shall be liberated and saved (yasha’ – Yisra’el will be delivered and rescued, experiencing salvation).’” (Yirma’yah / Respect Yah / Jeremiah 30:7)
Unlike man’s fairytales which typically begin well and end poorly, with Yah, it will be the other way around. The most horrific days humankind has ever endured are fast approaching, with the full effect of man’s rage unleashed within ten years. Life beginning in 2029 will be unsustainable and unbearable. And yet, this story has a happy ending. Out of the Time of Ya’aqob’s Troubles, Yahowah will liberate and save Yisra’el and Yahuwdym.
“‘And it shall happen in that day (wa hayah ba ha yowm ha huw’ – it will come to pass during that time),’ prophetically declares (na’um – reveals well in advance of it occurring) Yahowah (Yahowah) of the vast array of spiritual implements (tsaba’), ‘that I will break (shabar – I will crush and destroy) his yoke (‘ol huw’ – his means of control and manipulation) from upon your neck (min ‘al tsaw’r ‘atah) and I will pull off (wa nataq – I will tear away) your bonds and shackles (mowserah ‘atah).
Those who are illegitimate and unauthorized (zar – those falsely claiming authority who are foreigners from a distant place advocating that which is improper) will no longer make him work for them (wa lo’ ‘abad ba huw’ ‘owd – will never again enslave Yisra’elites, forcing them to either worship their way or be reduced to servitude, with Ya’aqob’s descendants serving them).’” (Yirma’yah / Yah Teaches and Guides / Jeremiah 30:8)
The Egyptians were the first to enslave Jews and force 47them to labor on their behalf. But the same was done by the Assyrians, the Babylonians, the Greeks, the Romans, Roman Catholics, Muslims, and most recently Europeans, especially the Germans. It is what is envisioned by the anti-Semitic Conspirators. But these shackles will be removed and broken. Yahuwdym and Yisra’elites will live as the Towrah teaches: free and liberated lives.
Choosing to do that which is rewarding and beneficial, Yisra’elites shall instead engage in a labor of love. And they will do so with the most beloved…
“‘Instead (wa), they shall work with (‘abad ‘eth – they will serve with, laboring alongside) Yahowah (Yahowah), their God (‘elohym hem), and with Dowd (wa ‘eth Dowd – alongside the Beloved, more commonly known as David), their king and counselor (melek hem – their leader and advisor), whom, to reveal the way to the benefits of the relationship (‘asher – who, to provide directions for life for the blessed to live, showing the steps to walk which are correct and give meaning to life), I will raise up and establish for them (quwm la hem – I will fulfill and validate My oath to affirm, taking a stand to empower for them).’” (Yirma’yah / Yah Lifts Me Up / Jeremiah 30:9)
Yisra’el and Yahuwdah will return and embrace the reason they were chosen, which is to work with Yahowah for the betterment of all mankind. And they will do so with the man Yahowah chose to lead and advise them, His beloved son, Dowd | David.
While the entire concept of bodily resurrection is counterproductive, and while it did not occur with the Passover Lamb, that is not to say that the souls of those who have died will not be raised. Such is the case with Dowd | David. He is the closest occurrence we find in the Word of God to an individual being resurrected – albeit completely bereft of his deteriorating body.
48Yahowah referred to Dowd as His “‘ebed – coworker” more often than anyone else, perhaps more than all others combined, for a reason. So it is fitting here that having finally chosen to work with Yah, Yahuwdym and Yisra’elites are following Dowd’s example.
I know that I am beating a dead false prophet, but nonetheless it must be acknowledged that Sha’uwl | Paul lied when he claimed that ‘David’ had served his purpose in his time and was no longer relevant. When a person’s testimony is in direct conflict with God’s Word, they are wrong.
“‘And then (wa) Ya’aqob (Ya’aqob – the one who firmly supplants himself, serving as a synonym for Yisra’el), My coworker (‘ebed ‘any – My associate who works with Me), you will have nothing to fear (‘atah ‘al yare’ – no reason to be intimidated or frightened), Yahowah (Yahowah) reveals well in advance of it occurring (na’um – prophetically declares).
Nor will you be dismayed (wa ‘al chathath – nor will you be discouraged or destroyed, neither abolished or confused), Yisra’el (Yisra’el – Individuals who Engage and Endure with God), because behold (ky hineh), I will save you, delivering you (‘any yasha’ ‘atah – I will rescue and liberate you, providing you with protection and salvation) from being distant and alienated (min rachowq – from becoming separated as was the case long ago in a previous period of time), along with your offspring (wa ‘eth zera’ – your descendants and seed, as well as that which you have sown), from the realm (min ‘erets) of their exile and captivity (shaby hem – where they were controlled and oppressed, even taken captive).
And (wa) Ya’aqob (Ya’aqob – serving as a synonym for Yisra’el) will change and return (shuwb – will turn around and come back, recovered and restored), and be at peace and put at ease (wa shaqat wa sha’an – find himself 49in a satisfying situation and favorable circumstance), with no one troubling him (wa ‘ayn charad – without a concern).’” (Yirma’yah / Respect Yah / Jeremiah 30:10)
Yahowah has now reiterated three times that He, Himself, will liberate and save Yisra’el and Yahuwdah. And He will do so with Dowd as King.
All of those who have and continue to claim that God is with them are in for a rude awakening. Yahowah is the God of Yisra’el and does not want us to forget it.
“‘For I am with you (ky ‘eth ‘atah ‘any),’ prophetically declares (na’um) Yahowah (Yahowah), ‘to liberate and save you (la yasha’ ‘atah – to provide freedom and salvation, deliverance and prosperity).
Indeed (ky), I will engage and act (‘asah – I will do what is necessary) to bring an end to (kalah – I will without fail bring to a conclusion, completely vanquishing) all of the Gentile nations and institutions (ba kol ha gowym – all of the foreign countries, entities, and each of the pagan peoples of conflicting cultures who are brought together by religion or politics) among whom I have scattered and dispersed you (‘asher puwts ‘atah) by name and reputation (sham).’”
Just as our love is neither real nor relevant when we do not vehemently oppose those who seek to harm our children, Yahowah is now making the same distinction. To be a loving, supportive, and protective Father, He must act out against those who have abused His Family over the millennia. As a result, God will bring an end to every Gentile nation and institution on Earth.
There will be no United States, no People’s Republic of China, no European Union, no Russian Federation, no Roman Catholic Church, no Christianity, nor Islam. Those who mistakenly believed that God was with them, and that 50they were destined to be with Him, will find tomorrow’s news unfamiliar and unpleasant.
Such will not be the case with the Chosen People, Yisra’elites and Yahuwdym…
“‘You will be the exception because (‘ak ‘eth ‘atah) I will not act in such a way (lo’ ‘asah) to cause you to fail or perish (kalah – I will not facilitate your conclusion or your demise, you will not be annihilated or destroyed).
Instead, I will instruct you (wa yasar ‘atah – I will enable you to be correct, teaching you and thereby strengthening you) in the means to execute good judgment regarding the means to resolve disputes (la ha mishpat – in how to be judgmental, on how to be discerning and discriminating such that you can make good decisions; from my – to ponder and ask questions about shaphat – being judgmental, making sound decisions, resolving controversies, and being just) such that you are found innocent and are not punished (wa naqah – so that you are pardoned and forgiven, seen as clean and pure, purged of imperfections).
I will not banish you nor leave you destitute (lo’ naqah ‘atah – I will see to it that you are never again forced to live elsewhere nor lack for anything (piel imperfect energic nun jussive – Yah is enthusiastically acting upon Yisra’el such that they receive these ongoing and enduring benefits, and is celebrating, using a third-person expression of volition akin to ‘let this be so!’)).’” (Yirma’yah / Yah Teaches and Guides / Jeremiah 30:11)
To be set apart is to be the exception to that which is common. Yisra’el is God’s exception, a people set apart for His benefit and theirs.
Having decided to act upon the means He has offered to reconcile our relationship, for the first time in ages, Yah will 51be able to pronounce His Children “innocent, fully pardoned, and forgiven.”
There are two additional relevant references to this occasion of restoration and return in Yirma’yah. The next prophecy regarding the fulfillment of Yowm Kipurym | the Day of Reconciliations is in the following chapter, and it is among the most powerful announcements ever conveyed by God.
The prophecy begins, as did the last, focusing on the same people. And yet as the only statement within the prophets addressing a “beryth chadash – renewed Covenant,” it is both essential and lethal to Christianity. Without it, there is no basis for a “New Testament.” With it, the foundational claims of the “New Testament” are destroyed – completely and irrevocably obliterated.
Describing the events which will transpire on the Day of Reconciliations, the prophet proclaims…
“‘Behold (hineh – look up and pay especially close attention), a time is coming (yowmym bow’ – days are approaching),’ Yahowah (Yahowah – God’s name transliterated as directed by His towrah – instructions on His hayah – existence and His role in our shalowm – reconciliation as ‘elowah – Almighty God) reveals well in advance of it occurring (na’um – prophetically declares), ‘when I will enter into and cut with (wa karat ‘eth – when I will establish through separation a set-apart agreement on behalf of) the House of Yisra’el (Beyth Yisra’el – the Home of those who Engage and Endure with God) and with (wa ‘eth) the Family of Yahuwdah (Beyth Yahuwdah – the Household of those Beloved of Yah), a restored and 52renewed (chadash – a repaired and reaffirmed; from chadash – to renew and repair, to restore and reaffirm) Covenant (Beryth – Family-Oriented Relationship).’” (Yirma’yah / Yah Lifts Me Up and Raises Me / Jeremiah 31:31)
The Covenant is being restored with the people for whom it was made. We have moved forward four thousand years – eighty Yowbel – and we have returned to where it all began. There is no accommodation here for Replacement Theology, for Gentiles replacing Yahuwdym or for a Church being substituted for Yisra’el. God says what He means, and He means what He says. This is an intellectual kill shot targeting Christianity.
The adjective, chadash, is defined by its actionable root, the verb, chadash. It means “to renew, to restore, to repair, and to reaffirm.” This is not announcing a “New Testament,” a “Talmud,” or a “Qur’an,” but instead the “reaffirmation and restoration” of the one and only, unique and exclusive, “Beryth – Covenant.”
The situation that we are approaching, this close to the Covenant’s reaffirmation, will be unlike anything humankind has experienced. The Occasion of Restoration and Return will soon be over. The last decision will have been made and the Family will be complete. This celebration is in Heaven among spiritual beings – the souls who have accepted the instructive conditions of the Covenant and who have reaped the benefits of attending the Miqra’ey, especially Yowm Kipurym. Having become Towrah observant, they became right with Yah.
This is, however, a very different situation than what occurred some 3400 years ago on the way out of Mitsraym. Those events set these events into motion. There was an urgency on that day to make this day possible.
“‘It will differ somewhat from (lo’ ka – it won’t be 53exactly like) the Covenant (ha Beryth – the Family-Oriented Relationship Agreement) which, to reveal the way to the benefits of the relationship (‘asher – that provide directions showing the steps to walk which are correct and give meaning to those who are properly led and guided), I entered into (karat – I established by setting apart when I cut) with their fathers (‘eth ‘ab hem) on the day (ba yowm – during the time) I firmly took them by the hand and, with overwhelming intent, overpowered the situation (chazaq ‘any ba yad – I showed an intense resolve and was inflexible in My influence over them, even overpowering them due to the urgent need for them to prevail) to bring them out (la yatsa’ min – to draw them out and bring them close, descending and extending Myself to serve by removing them from) of the realm of the Crucibles of Oppression (‘erets Mitsraym – the place of subjugation associated with religious coercion and political tyranny, the land of military domination and economic cruelty; from a compound of my – to question and tsar – troubling and adversarial situations).’”
There was an urgency then to liberate a reluctant audience. The enslaved Yisra’elites knew little of Yahowah and nothing of His Towrah or Covenant. They had only just then been introduced to Pesach and Matsah and were unaware of anything beyond. To get their attention and bring them home, Yahowah had to overpower the situation and intervene with overwhelming conviction. Without having done so, He would not have been able to achieve what He knew was needed to honor the promises He had made to ‘Abraham, Yitschaq, and Ya’aqob regarding this very same Covenant.
By contrast, on this day, Yahowah’s children are here because they know Him, and because they are all Towrah observant. They have chosen to come home by engaging in the Covenant and attending the Miqra’ey. They did not come 54kicking and screaming, but of their own freewill.
This time, rather than leaving Mitsraym, they have walked away from Babylon. They are no longer confounded or confused. And they are not estranged. And yet by contrast, in the days which followed the first Yatsa’ | Exodus, and for a long time thereafter…
“‘Relationally, they broke (‘asher hem parar ‘eth – they sought to nullify that relationship by thwarting its intent and by disassociating from the correct path, thereby revoking the benefits of) My Covenant (beryth ‘any – My Family-Oriented Relationship Agreement) although we were married (wa ‘anoky ba’al ba hem – even though we were conceived to be husband and wife, even leader and follower),’ Yahowah (Yahowah) reveals through this prophet (na’um).” (Yirma’yah / Respect and Revere Yah / Jeremiah 31:32)
The Covenant is reciprocal, which is why it is called a “relationship agreement.” God has consistently honored His commitments, and will continue to do so, which is the reason He is restoring His relationship with His People. However, with mankind, that has not been the case. It has been a rocky road after Ya’aqob. And now in the wake of Rabbinic Judaism, four of the five conditions of the Covenant are routinely nullified and revoked. Christians are 0 for 5. And Muslims do not even know there is one.
The problems have been and continue to be ignorance through avoidance of the Towrah. Without the Towrah, there is no access to the Covenant. With it, Jews are in breach.
This statement, however, does not apply to anyone other than Yisra’el and Yahuwdah, because they alone “parar – broke” the Beryth. Christians have never been part of it.
“‘For this reason (ky), this is (zo’th – specifically) the Covenant (ha beryth – the Family-Oriented Relationship 55Agreement) which, to enjoy the benefits of the relationship (‘asher), I will cut (karat – I will create through separation, making and establishing) with (‘eth – on behalf of) the House of Yisra’el (Beyth Yisra’el – the Home of those who Engage and Endure with God) after that and then without hesitation (‘achar ha hem – at a much later period and in a different time, in the latter days without equivocation or delay),’ prophetically declares (na’um – announces in advance of it occurring) Yahowah (Yahowah – God’s personal name pronounced as guided by His towrah – instructions):
‘I will provide, placing (nathan – I will give and ascribe, producing, offering, and bestowing) My towrah | guidance (‘eth towrah ‘any – with My teaching, instructions, and directions) within them (ba qereb hem – inside of them, such that it is part of their inner person, part of their thought process, affecting their conscience, and animating their lives). And integrated into their ability to make decisions (wa ‘al leb hem – and upon their inclinations and disposition, their character and thinking, their hearts and minds), I will write it (kathab hy’ – I will inscribe and engrave it).
I will be (wa hayah – I will exist as) their God (la hem la ‘elohym – drawing near them and approaching them as a Ram shepherding His sheep). And they shall be My Family (wa hem hayah la ‘any la ‘am – and they will always exist near Me as My People).’” (Yirma’yah / Yah Teaches and Guides / Jeremiah 31:33)
Yahuwdah is not mentioned because Yisra’el is now reunited and Yahuwdah is part of the collective whole. And while the restoration of Yisra’el at the conclusion of this Time of Return and Renewal is telling, that’s small manna compared to what follows. Up to this point, Yahowah’s Towrah has been available to us but not integrated into us. We have had the option to take it or leave it, to observe it 56and reflect upon it, or ignore it. This is great news, even for those of us who have devoted our lives to understanding it and sharing it. Not only are we barely scratching the surface of what can be known and understood, but much of what Yahowah is going to share about this day will be germane to navigating through six and seven dimensions.
Further, there is an enormous difference between reading the Towrah in Hebrew, while contemplating its intent in English in a world polluted by misconceptions, versus having it integrated into our core nature. Moreover, we will become so fluent in Hebrew that we will be comfortable conversing with God.
While you may want the towrah integrated now rather than later, it would not be appropriate. Yah is not going to supplant our freewill by imposing His on us. This is our time to choose, when we have the opportunity to respond to Yahowah’s calling.
It is also a time of discovery, where we can capitalize upon what we have been given to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. Today we have the opportunity to work with God to do something that will endure the test of time. We can encourage others to closely examine and carefully consider Yahowah’s Towrah such that they receive the Covenant’s benefits. We can contribute to the size of God’s Family while Yahowah enhances our lives.
On this day in the summer of 2021, as has been the case for nearly 20 years, we are doing our utmost to encourage all who are interested, especially Yisra’el and Yahuwdah, to Yada Yahowah | become familiar with, come to know, and understand Yahowah. It is the most rewarding and enjoyable opportunity of our lives because we have done so by translating Yahowah’s Towrah | Instructions while contemplating the implications of His Guidance.
Our mission will soon be obsolete. Once Yahowah’s 57Family has returned to the fold, and once Yahowah has written a copy of His towrah inside of us, integrating His teaching into our lives, everyone will know what we have come to realize – and more, far more than we could comprehend at this moment.
For us, it will be a time of celebration, not only because Yahowah appreciates our devotion to calling Yisra’el and Yahuwdah Home, but also because our lives will be similarly enriched and enlightened on this day.
Equally wonderful, the numskulls will be a thing of the past. The political and religious, the conspiratorial and militaristic, will be swept off of the planet.
“‘No longer shall anyone impart information or teach (wa lo’ lamad ‘owd) individuals in association with an outspoken world (‘ysh ‘eth rea’ huw’ – their companions, friends, and errant countrymen) or (wa) other individuals according to brotherly kinship (‘ysh ‘eth ‘ach huw’) so as to say (la ‘amar – approaching to declare), ‘Choose of your own accord to know Yahowah (yada’ Yahowah – decide to recognize and acknowledge Yah, and show some desire to become familiar with and understand Yahowah)! because (ky – truthfully and by contrast, at this time) everyone will know Me (kol hem yada’ eth ‘any – all of them, without exception, will actually be aware of and genuinely acknowledge Me), from the youngest (la min qatan hem) and up to the enduring witness of most important and oldest (wa ‘ad gadowl hem),’ prophetically reveals (na’um) Yahowah (Yahowah).” (Yirma’yah / Yah Lifts Me Up and Raises Me / Jeremiah 31:34)
For many of the fortunate souls experiencing this marvelous moment in time, they will be spiritual infants, having just recently responded to Yahowah’s call to return and be restored, having arrived toward the conclusion of the Time of Ya’aqob’s Troubles. And yet with Yahowah’s 58towrah | guidance scribed within them, they will recognize and acknowledge their Father.
I think that this towrah | teaching and guidance would have been written in the lower case if such a concept existed in Hebrew. This is because the existing Towrah, as Bare’syth through Dabarym, contains painful remembrances of disappointing choices which will no longer be germane. Just as there will be no reason to tell those who already know Yahowah that they should Yada’ Yah, there will no longer be any reason to explain the conditions of the Covenant to those who are already experiencing the joy of participating in it. As spiritual beings and in heaven, we no longer need to know how to get here but, instead, how to act now that we are here. We will want guidance on how to explore the universe without doing damage to it or ourselves. And for that, we will need a far more advanced edition of Yahowah’s “towrah – instructions and guidance.”
Yahowah’s return with Dowd will be the single most important day in human history – since creation, actually. Therefore, God’s prophetic portrayal of the events surrounding Yowm Kipurym in year 6000 Yah is presented from a variety of viewpoints.
“‘Behold (hineh – pay attention and look up), days are coming (yowmym bow’ – a time is approaching),’ prophetically reveals (na’um) Yahowah (Yahowah – God’s one and only name pronounced as guided by His towrah – instructions on His hayah – existence), ‘when (wa) I will take a stand to establish, thereby fulfilling (quwm – I will come onto the scene to accomplish and confirm, validating by bringing to a successful conclusion), the 59beneficial account (‘eth ha dabar ha towb – the good word, desirable matter, and generous promise) which, to show the way to the relationship (‘asher), I spoke to (dabar ‘el) the House of Yisra’el (Beyth Yisra’el – the Home of those who Engage and Endure with God) and with (wa ‘eth) the Family of Yahuwdah (Beyth Yahuwdah – the Household of those Beloved by Yah).’” (Yirma’yah / Yah Lifts Me Up and Raises Me / Jeremiah 33:14)
How is it possible, with Yirma’yah’s prophecies in the hands of billions of people, that the religion of Christianity gets away with claiming that God’s promises were transferred from Israel and Jews to the Church and Gentiles? This, like the previous prophecy, shows God focusing on restoring His relationship with Yisra’el and Yahuwdah in the Last Days prior to His return. The previous one revealed that the Towrah was still in vogue and therefore had not been replaced by a New Testament. And this time, the focus is on Dowd, not Yahowsha’.
Based upon this announcement, we should be looking forward to Yahowah fulfilling His promises to restore His relationship with Yisra’el and Yahuwdah, bringing these very same people home to their Land, returning to greet them, and bringing Dowd with Him to guide and protect them. God will soon be restoring what was taken away from His people while transforming the Earth into the conditions enjoyed in the Garden. He will be enriching and elongating His people’s lives, and at the same time, ridding the world of their enemies. He will do all of these things and more, including integrating His towrah – guidance into our very nature.
This speaks of honoring several of these promises…
“‘In those days (ba ha yowmym ha hem), and during that time (wa ha ‘eth ha hy’), for Dowd (la Dowd – on behalf of the approach of the Beloved and for David) as the 60rightful Branch (tsemach tsadyq – as the correct means to live and grow, the valid means to become upright, prosperous, and vindicated), I will support abundant growth (tsamach – I will cause profuse and plentiful fruit from the source, increasing the capacity and the ability to support life, bringing this to fruition and to successful completion).
He will act upon and engage in (wa ‘asah – he will profit from, expending considerable energy to bring about and promote) the means to make sound decisions and justly resolve disputes (mishpat – judgment, being judgmental while making informed and reasoned decisions, while also providing sentencing; from my – to ponder and shaphat – to decide) in addition to (wa) being right (tsadaqah – being correct, upright, and vindicated) in the Land (ba ha ‘erets).’” (Yirma’yah / Respect and Revere Yah / Jeremiah 33:15)
The rightful branch is Dowd. He is connected and correct when it comes to God, and as such, if we want to be right, even grafted onto that same branch, we ought to consider what he has to say. God chose Dowd | David to be his son, king and messiah, the branch and shepherd, and is returning with him for a reason – one the world has either ignored, rejected, or misplaced.
In this statement, we are reminded that Dowd, having engaged in the “mishpat – means to make sound decisions and justly resolve disputes,” has gained understanding and has been validated as having been correct. Moreover, Yahowah is going to deploy Dowd as judge and jury.
“‘In those days (ba ha yowm ha hem – at that time), Yahuwdah (Yahuwdah – Yahowah’s Beloved) will be liberated and saved (yasha’ – will become victorious and free, delivered from harm’s way and rescued, experiencing salvation).
61And (wa) Yaruwshalaim (Yaruwshalaim – the Source from which Teaching and Guidance regarding Reconciliation Flow) will dwell (shakan – will abide and remain, living) confidently and securely (la betach – safely as a result of their trust).
This is the designation (zeh shem – this can be regarded as his name and reputation) by which, to show the way to the benefits of the relationship (‘asher – to lead along the proper path to get the most out of life), he will be called (qara’ la huw’ – he will be invited and summoned, designated and welcomed, his name read and recited, and by which he will be met (qal imperfect)), ‘Yahowah Makes Us Right (Yahowah tsadeq ‘anahnuw – Yahowah was Honest with Us because Yahowah vindicates those of us who are correct).’” (Yirma’yah / Yah Teaches and Guides / Jeremiah 33:16)
There is no mistaking the fact that Yahowah took the initiative to engage Dowd on behalf of His people, and Dowd devoted himself to knowing God. The understanding he gained along the way was provided by the Towrah and Spirit. And it was this understanding which made it possible for Dowd to be vindicated and correct. The same approach and result apply to the entirety of God’s Covenant Family.
“For thus says (ky koh ‘amar – indeed, this is what is affirmed by) Yahowah (Yahowah – God’s one and only name pronounced as guided by His towrah – instructions on His hayah – existence for our shalowm – reconciliation), ‘Dowd (Dowd – the Beloved, commonly called, David) shall never be cut off, cease to exist, nor fail (lo’ karat – will never be cast down or diminished, banished or eliminated).
He is the individual (‘ysh) who will inhabit (yashab ‘al – who will sit and dwell upon) the most honorable seat (kise’ – the throne, the place of leadership and authority) of 62the House of Yisra’el (Beyth Yisra’el – the Home of those who Engage and Endure with God).’” (Yirma’yah / Yah Lifts Me Up and Raises Me / Jeremiah 33:17)
From Yahowah’s perspective, Dowd is the best of the best. And since Dowd was not the best-behaved individual who ever lived, we would do well to consider Yahowah’s criterion when it comes to His preferences.
That said, this revelation obliterates the tenets of the religion best known for its dead god on a stick. It proves that Sha’uwl | Paul lied when he claimed that the Torah could not save and when he opined that anyone who violated a single edict was guilty of breaking them all. Clearly, Dowd was Towrah observant, engaged in the Miqra’ey, participated in the Beryth, and was tsadaq with Yah, prompting God to say these things about him.
We can also confidently conclude that the promises Yahowah made to Dowd were not given to another, because they are being fulfilled on this day. It is Dowd | David, not ‘Jesus Christ,’ who is being proclaimed eternal, and who will return to sit on the throne beside his Father.
The Seat of Honor is in Yisra’el, not in Rome – nor is it the “Chair of St. Peter.” There is no mention of Gentiles, Christians, Christ, or a Church for a reason – and that reason is that they are not part of Yahowah’s plan and are not included among His people. It was not long ago that we learned that these Gentile institutions will be annihilated.
While this is what we came to affirm, what follows is too intriguing to forego. God’s next statement is a crushing blow to the aspirations and claims of Rabbinic Judaism. Long ago, power-hungry men pushed the thresholds of freewill to the point of democratic control over God’s intent. Led by Rabbi Akiba, they claimed that, because there were many of them and only one God, they could outvote HaShem, even on matters prescribed in the Towrah. So they 63conjured up some replacement theology of their own.
These self-serving and egotistical clerics claimed that all of the instructions, rights, privileges, benefits, and promises afforded the Lowy in their exclusive role as priests on behalf of God and His People now belonged to them but, of course, without any of the restrictions or requirements. After their “vote,” the Lowy | ‘Levitical’ priesthood was discredited and their connection to the Towrah was severed such that rabbis could exalt themselves at the people’s expense. It is one of many aspects of Rabbinic Judaism (which is the only surviving strain of the religion) which makes a mockery of Jewish claims to be “Torah observant.”
As we have noted to the detriment of Christians, and this time to discredit religious Jews, Yahowah means what He says. Just as the towrah is being eternally integrated into the lives of those who will live forever as part of the Covenant family, just as Dowd will always lead Yah’s sheep, the Lowy will continually do as Yahowah intended – and for our benefit.
The integration of Yahowah’s Towrah into the lives of Yisra’elites and Yahuwdym upon the restoration of the Covenant invalidated the claims rabbis have made on behalf of their Talmud. And now, with the return to the Lowy, rabbis have no authorization. This is a bad day for Judaism.
“‘And also, the Lowy (wa la ha lowy – then those who attend to and join together, commonly called Levite) priests (ha kohen – ministers and advisors) shall not be diminished or eliminated, and never be without (lo’ karat – will not be cut off or cease to exist, they will not be banished or fail by lacking) an individual (‘ysh – a person) to approach My presence (min la paneh ‘any – for reason of drawing near My appearance) by offering that which uplifts (‘alah ‘olah – by lifting up that which ascends), transforming a physical entity into light (qatar – morphing matter into energy 64through combustion to join together and enclose, thereby engaging in an offering to approach, converting and adapting by burning something savory, with the roasting producing a smoky aroma in the form of incense, even to fumigate to eliminate pests) as a present bestowed and offered without compensation (minchah – as a gift which is allocated and allotted freely; from a root meaning to bestow and apportion) while also (wa) engaging in and acting upon (‘asah – performing and carrying out) the sacrificial offerings (zebach –communion and harmonious relations through feasts by preparing meat for consumption) all days, and thus continually throughout time (kol ha yowmym – every day).’” (Yirma’yah / Yah Lifts Me Up and Raises Me / Jeremiah 33:18)
The purpose of the Miqra’ey | Invitations to be Called Out and Meet with God has always been to prepare the Children of the Covenant to enter their Heavenly Father’s presence. The Lowy were prescribed the responsibility of assuring that each step along the way to approach God was accomplished and understood within the context of the Towrah’s guidance. As a result, when presented and observed correctly, the beneficiaries of the Miqra’ey are transformed and liberated from material beings stuck in three dimensions to seven-dimensional energy-based individuals akin to light. This empowers us such that we can appear before and relate to Yahowah.
Admittedly, however, you will not find qatar rendered as “transforming a physical entity into light” or “morphing matter into energy through combustion” in any lexicon – even though every definition includes burning, whereby wood is converted into radiant energy and light. They acknowledge combustion and the aroma of smoke that results from it, as well as the word’s association with achieving a favorable result, which several lexicons define as “approaching and engaging by joining together.” I simply 65extrapolated from these connotations based upon what we have learned. And it seemed reasonable to do so in recognition that this is about entering Yahowah’s presence through ‘alah and ‘olah – by being raised and lifted up.
Progressing through the words, we find that minchah is also a bit of an enigma since, as a noun, no one seems to know what it represents, leaving us to consider its verbal root, from where a picture emerges of what Yah is providing to His children: “a present bestowed and offered without compensation, a gift which is allocated and allotted freely.”
This, too, is a slap in the face of rabbis who have conjured up all manner of absurd ploys to charge exorbitant fees for services they have mandated in their Talmud. Almost everything required to be Kosher, the central plank of the religion, is a money-making scheme.
While the meaning of zabach is undisputed, which is to prepare an animal for consumption (which necessitates butchering and cooking it), the purpose is often misappropriated. The participants are not offering anything to God and are instead being nourished by the result. Said another way, every day will be a feast.
There is an apparent conflict, however, one which I suspect is resolved through Albert Einstein’s formula: E=mc2. To celebrate the Miqra’ey, but also to enjoy one of the delights of camping out with our Heavenly Father, we will leave the 7th dimension as Energy and explore the 6-dimensional universe below as material beings.
Additionally, the reason “kol ha yowmym – every day” may have been used instead of the more common “la ‘owlam – forever” is that time is actually a function of matter because it only flows in a material realm. Until energy is converted into matter, time exists but does not flow. Therefore, the zabach could be limited to the years between 6000 and 7000 Yah, which are celebrated in ‘erets | the material realm, or 66they are addressing the days we choose to manifest physical features and enjoy the opportunities they, alone, provide.
The prophet is describing the transformation from being trapped in the material realm to being liberated spiritually on Yowm Kipurym using the words available to him and doing a yeoman’s job. With just a modicum of etymological investigation, we are finding a treasure trove of mind-expanding revelations. And among them, this next one shines brightly. If you are a Talmud-touting Jew or Christian of any ilk, be prepared to swallow your tongue and eat your words. So much for the notion of a second, “Oral Law,” or Mishneh Torah, and “New Testament” based upon a “New Covenant.” As with all myths, they never had any validity.
“Then the Word (wa dabar – the statement, message, and account, the matters worth communicating) of Yahowah (Yahowah – God’s proper name transliterated as directed by His towrah – instructions) was directed to (‘el) Yirmayahuw (Yirmayahuw – Yahow Lifts Me Up and Raises Me, Yah Teaches and Guides Me, and I Respect and Revere Yahowah) in order to say (la ‘amar – so as to announce), (33:19) this is what Yahowah declares (koh ‘amar Yahowah),
‘If you can break, revoke, nullify, or split into two parts (‘im parar – if you can violate, thwart, or foil, frustrating the intent of, or in any way disassociate from by creating a second variation of [from 4QJer] (hifil imperfect – denotes cause and effect with the subject (those nullifying the Covenant by separating it into two parts) influencing the object (which is Yahowah’s Covenant) in this manner such that it now reflects their intent (making the object a secondary subject in this regard) with ongoing implications)) My Covenant (‘eth beryth ‘any – that which is according to and associated with My Family-Oriented Relationship Agreement) of this time (ha yowm) or My Family-Oriented Relationship Agreement (wa ‘eth beryth ‘any – 67or that which pertains to My Covenant) during a time of darkness (ha laylah – of the night deprived of light) then (wa) a means to approach does not and will not exist (la bilthy hayah – accordingly, its existence is negated through disassociation) based upon what was done (yowmam – at that time pertaining to the actions which interrupted it) when darkness prevailed (wa laylah – during the absence of light) in their time (ba ‘eth hem).’” (Yirma’yah / Respect and Revere Yah / Jeremiah 33:20)
Sometimes a single word can speak volumes. Such is the case with parar. It was designed to condemn Rabbinic Judaism and Christianity eight hundred years before these religions were created. During a time of darkness, away from the light, the “Talmud” was invented to replace the Lowy kohen with rabbis. Similarly, a “New Testament” was cobbled together predicated upon transferring God’s promises from Dowd and Yisra’el to a Christian Church. Both “nullified” the Covenant of this day by “creating a second,” when there should have remained one. In so doing, they “disassociated” themselves from Yahowah’s one and only Covenant, “frustrating its intent.”
In this case, parar was conveyed using the hifil stem. This means that those who would be nullifying Yahowah’s Covenant by separating it into two parts would be influencing what God had offered at that time in such a way that, by frustrating the intent of the original Covenant, those advocating a new covenant would suffer the effect of the verb, which is to be “thwarted and foiled.” And in the imperfect conjugation, there would be ongoing implications of having been negated.
Admittedly, this passage is a challenging translation with the interjection of ha yowm and ha laylah without a preposition. As such, they can be simplistically rendered “of the day” and “of the night.” Superficially then, translators commonly infer that “the LORD” had a covenant “with the 68day” and “with the night.” However, “ba – with” was not written in the text. Therefore, since there is no mention of a covenant with the day or one with the night to which this could be referring, and recognizing that such a concept is ludicrous, the most responsible approach is to acknowledge that Yahowah’s Covenant “of this day and time” was nullified by splitting it into two parts during a time of darkness.
Earlier in Yirma’yah we read that Yahowah would be reestablishing His Covenant with Yisra’el and Yahuwdah by placing His “towrah – guidance” within His People. This made the notion of a “New Testament” predicated on annulling the Towrah, and of replacing an “Old Testament” with a “New Testament” predicated on entirely different criterion (teaching vs. faith), absurd to the point of scandalous – just as it repudiated the authenticity of the Talmud. Both should have been instantly and summarily rebuked. But, alas, there simply weren’t enough rational and responsible people to point out Judaism’s or Christianity’s faulty assumptions.
If you advocate a second, newer, and thus replacement covenant, there is no chance that your soul will survive Yahowah’s return. If you remain intent on frustrating the promises God has made to His people, claiming them for your Church, you are nearing the termination of your existence.
Should you be curious, rabbis claim, with all evidence to the contrary, that their Talmud dates to the time of the Towrah. In Orthodox mythology, it served as a second Torah, one given verbally to the elders while Moseh was inscribing the one Yahowah was providing.
There are two Talmudic collections, with the Jerusalem Talmud taking form under Rabbi Akiba in the 2nd century CE, and while first published around 375 CE, it remains raw 69and incomplete. The Babylonian Talmud was initiated around 350 CE but not codified until 500 CE, although it is alleged to contain the earliest revelations. The babel found in the Babylonian version is considered the most complete and authoritative – as it expresses the opinions of thousands of rabbis. So when Yahowah tells His people to “Come out of Babylon,” He is asking them to reject the Talmud – and thus Judaism.
As an interesting curiosity, the New Testament and the Talmud were composed in the realms of ancient rivals. With the Christian Scriptures composed and compiled in the Greco-Roman world, the Talmud took shape in Persia. The Jewish Scriptures were not only codified contemporaneously with the Christian Canon under Constantine and Eusebius, these resulting tomes would assure a continuation of bitter rivalries.
The Talmud | to Study (or more correctly: to impose and dictate religious edicts) is comprised of Mishneh | Repeated Study (which is, in actuality, the Rabbinic Oral Law (also called Halakhah)) and Gemara | Completion – which are rabbinic opinions and arguments. The Babylonian Talmud is the centerpiece of Rabbinic Judaism. When a rabbi speaks of studying the Towrah, he is addressing the Talmud, the replacement Towrah, which means “to study.” The Rabbinic Talmud has supplanted and covered over Yahowah’s Towrah, with the religious text controlling every aspect of the Jewish cultural and religious experience and aspirations.
As an interesting aside, Mishneh is a compound of my – to question the who, what, where, why, when and how of shanah – to alter and change. By choosing this name, the rabbis actually admitted to the crime to which God is accusing them. Further, Gemara is spelled identically to the name of Howsha’s wife, Gomer, and she was a temple prostitute. Her name, and thus Gemara, was scribed such that the Gimel reveals that she was walking away from Mem 70(Spirit) and Rosh (being an observant person).
Returning to the actual prophet, in his follow-on statement parar reappears, but is now modified by the hofal stem. This is quite rare since its implications are so extreme. As we know, stems create a relationship between the subject and object of the sentence with regard to the action of the verb. Parar | to violate, break, and nullify is already harsh, but when these concepts which are so caustic to a relationship are taken to the extreme extent of the hofal stem, it would be unwise for us to gloss over it. The hofal is the passive counterpart to the hifil stem, which is particularly important here because, the last time parar was stated, it was shaded by the hifil – something we discussed moments ago. With that stem, the subject of the verb causes the object to participate in the action of the verb as an under- or secondary-subject. Or in that case, Christians and Jews directly caused the Covenant to be nullified by breaking it into two parts and, in the process, making the resulting covenant a source of frustration, like themselves.
That’s not good. But now in the hofal, it means that if Yahowah were compelled by Christians and Jews to nullify His Covenant, such that He had been forced to create a second one, the unintended consequence would be to frustrate His purpose.
Furthermore, when we consider Yahowah’s reasoning in what follows, we should keep in mind that the ploys the religious have festooned. Jews claim that rabbis have replaced the Lowy Kohen | Levite Priests and HaShem’s Towrah | Teaching with their Talmud | Study, while Christians have replaced Yisra’el and Yahuwdym in their New Testament.
“Moreover, if that is so (gam – besides and by comparison and contrast, then again by concession), My Covenant (beryth ‘any – My Family-Oriented Relationship 71Agreement) would be broken and revoked through compulsion by creating a second variation outside the auspices of freewill (parar – can be forcefully divided into two separate parts without My consent, and thereby thwarted and frustrated, even disassociated and violated against My will (hofal imperfect – the forced imposition by those breaking the Covenant agreement without consideration for its intent with unfolding consequences over time)) with Dowd (‘eth Dowd – with My Beloved), My coworker (‘ebed ‘any – the one I work and associate with).
He would, thereby, be prevented from being (min hayah la huw’ – as a result, he could not approach, and from such means of being separated from that which he originally belonged he would not exist as) a son (ben) reigning as king (melek – coronated and considered as advisor and leader) on his throne (‘al kise’ huw’ – upon his seat of honor) as would be the case with (wa ‘eth) the Lowy (ha lowy – those who attend to and join together, commonly called Levite) priests (ha kohen – ministers and advisors) serving as My ministers (sharath ‘any – attending to My ceremonies by rendering assistance).’” (Yirma’yah / Yah Teaches and Guides / Jeremiah 33:21)
Yahowah might as well have said: “To hell with Christianity and Judaism, because if I were forced against My will to break My Covenant, frustrating its intent by separating it into two parts, then My promises to Dowd and My instructions regarding the Lowy would be nullified by these God-forsaken religions.”
Without Dowd, Yahowah does not have a “ben – son” to place on the throne, which speaks volumes about the appropriateness of limiting Yahowsha’s role to that of the Passover Lamb. As the Pesach ‘Ayl, Yahowsha’ | ‘Jesus’ no longer exists to fulfill the role of “Son of God.” It also means that rabbis are illegitimate usurpers, who have no place or purpose in Yahowah’s plans. This is breathtaking in its 72implications.
While among the most challenging translations we have endeavored to accurately render, we have been handsomely rewarded for our efforts. Christianity and Rabbinic Judaism crumble in the wake of these words.
If Yahowah’s promises are true, these religions are false. Likewise, they remain false if God’s promises are unreliable and unfulfilled. The religious lose either way. Fortunately for the sake of the Covenant, while the religious are liars, Yahowah is trustworthy. And that is the point. And so this is good news…
“‘To show the correct way to the relationship (‘asher – to benefit and get the most joy out of life), the vast array of Heaven’s Spiritual Messengers (tsaba ha shamaym – the ranks of the spiritual implements out of the Heavens) are innumerable (lo’ saphar – without a census and beyond relating a number).
Also, just as the sands of the sea (wa howl yam – the loose and coarse granular material that is worn down as tiny rocks of the ocean) are beyond measure (lo’ madad – cannot be accurately assessed relative to the quantity), in this manner and in this sequence of events (ken – it is likewise valid, therefore, that in time), I will multiply, increasing in number, dimensions, and power (rabah – I will increase, making numerous and great (hifil imperfect)) that which is associated with the seeds which were sown by (‘eth zera’ – the resulting seed, the offspring and family, in addition to that which takes root and bears fruit based upon what was planted by) Dowd (Dowd – the Beloved), My associate (‘ebed ‘any – the one I have worked with and will serve with), in addition to (wa) the Lowy (‘eth ha lowy – those who attend to and join together, commonly called Levite) who served with Me (sharath ‘eth ‘any – who attended to My ceremonies by rendering assistance in 73conjunction with Me).’” (Yirma’yah / Yah Lifts Me Up / Jeremiah 33:22)
It is music to my ears and, I trust, to yours as well. We are returning to the Gan ‘Eden | Garden of Joy with mal’ak aplenty to protect us, Dowd to lead us, and Lowy to guide us. The words sown by the son will take root within us, empowering and enlightening us while increasing our dimensionality.
When Yahowah returns to reestablish His Covenant and reconcile His relationship with Yisra’el and Yahuwdah on Yowm Kippurym in year 6000 Yah, His Student and our Teacher, the Chosen One, His Son, the Shepherd, Messiah, and King, the Firstborn and the Branch, the Prophet and Psalmist, His Beloved, Dowd, will be at His side. He was Tsadaq | Right and is now Melek Tsadaq | the Rightful King.
