--Sharing our Saviour Yahushua the Messiah to the World!--

 

-Please Read this FIRST- On this site we prefer to use the actual Name of our loving Heavenly Father as it was written in the Word, and thus you will note that we will use the Four Letter “Memorial Name” of - YHVH, which is pronounced as YaHVaH or YaHWaH. In addition we will also use our Heavenly Father’s attribute/title, which is Elohim rather than “God,” which sadly is the name of a pagan god. In addition we also love to use the actual and real Name of our beloved Messiah which is - Yahushua or Yahshua in short, for this is our Saviours original Hebrew Name as given to Him at birth in Lukas - Luke 1:31. This was the only Name ever used when He was on the earth by His family, disciples and His followers OVER THE centuries, even until today! However, it was changed to a foreign name by the founder of the new “pagan church of Rome.” Occasionally, we may also use other Hebrew or Greek names as well as different words in our studies for certain common words used are from pagan backgrounds and thus are not suitable. All names will be translated when they are FIRST used in a study or at various times as needed for clarity. There is a full explanation of YHVH’s blessed “Memorial Name” as well as the wonderful blessed Name of our Messiah and Saviour, thus please read …The Memorial Name.”

 

With Elder & Teacher Reuben ben Gershom

The three levels of learning & understanding of the blessed Word of YaHVaH Elohim (the Lord God):

When we read and study the blessed Scriptures, the Word of YHVH Elohim as a believer in Yahushua the Messiah, we should keep the following three steps always in mind for they are a valuable guide and it will certainly provide us with guidance and illuminate the sheer beauty and the fullness of YHVH’s most blessed Word.

1. Who was YHVH Elohim, blessed be His sanctified Name, speaking to?

2. When was it said?

3. How was His Word understood at the time it was spoken/given?

I do believe that these three points are most relevant to our understanding of 1. What the Almighty is saying at the time – 2. As well as what it means to us today - and 3. Especially to you and me right now!

What to do when we see someone drowning or in trouble?

Just as we must save a drowning man or woman, in the same manner we must save someone who has cut him or herself off from the Almighty and our beloved Saviour Yahushua, in fact the Word of YaHVaH Elohim (the LORD God) clearly states:

Do not stand still when your neighbour’s life is in danger.” Vayikra - Leviticus 19:16.

In the natural it stands to reason that whenever you see someone drowning in a river, or facing other dangers, it is obviously a good deed as a person, but especially in Messiah’s Name to do something to save a precious life. In such cases we would certainly not sit still, for we should act very quickly indeed!

However, if you yourself were not to jump in and save that person personally, it is your absolute responsibility to quickly call for someone who is able to do so in your place and rescue that person! But if you do nothing, you will be breaking the Commandments of YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, such as the one I have just quoted, as well as those as given by Yahushua our beloved Messiah.

What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbours, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!’ I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.” Lukas - Luke 15:4-7.

He (Yahushua) said to them, ‘If any of you has a sheep and it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will you not take hold of it and lift it out? How much more valuable is a man than a sheep! Therefore it is lawful to do good on the *Sabbath.” Mattityahu - Matthew 12:11-12.

It is obvious that the same holds true when we see another so distressed to the point he wishes to do himself harm, at such cases beloved we must prayerfully do everything in our power to stop that person to do a wrong, for they need to be guided with tender loving care and with mercy to be led back into the bosom of our beloved Saviour!

Likewise, when we see so many of our dear family members, friends, workmates or others who: 1. May not know the truth of the Word, or 2. Are just walking deliberately in sin, we must unrelentingly encourage them with the precious Word of Elohim and point them to the Messiah who came and shed His precious blood for the remission of “the sin.” Thus, we must encourage them to the same faith that was upheld at the time of the disciples and not that as held in general by that greater pagan Roman church ideology, be it protestant or other, lest, heaven forbid, they make Elohim angry and they will come under His wrath!

Although YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, is long suffering and patient, we cannot stand by and let the sinner continue to live in sin, which will only lead to the day, the Almighty, blessed be He, “must collect His debts” for remember that “the wages of sin is DEATH!” Sadly there is no other option, LIFE is only available for the true believers in Yahushua THE Messiah, and I do mean those who believe and pray in the Name of Yahushua and not in any other name! He called His faithful the “Little Flock.”

Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Lukas - Luke 12:32-34.

Therefore we must encourage each other to become part of the “Little Flock” in order to inherit the kingdom! If that is our treasure, which is right now in heaven, but the day will come when the Kingdom of Elohim, as Yahushua so clearly taught will be right here on the earth, not this earth, but a new earth, that will have a new heaven and a new city of Jerusalem and a new temple! Therefore beloved, let us get ready, for we can so clearly see how dreadful these days are, be it the many weather disasters, massive earthquakes, cyclones, twisters, wild/bushfires, floods, severe heat and ice cold winters, everything is extreme. And then there are countless wars and sadly the vast majority are Muslim related, yet they seem to affect the entire world. Then there is the violence and robberies in our very streets, with murders being tragically the norm these days, and what is even worse so many children are doing this from such a very young age. Father, I know that Messiah has told us about these days, but it is still so hard, yet the churches are not listening, for they are lost themselves as they are deceived by Satan and are in need of being saved and yes they are still drowning, but will they come to the truth in time?

Beloved, if we see someone drowning, we must act immediately and do something, even if we have to call on another faithful one in Yahushua who is a faithful swimmer in Him!

We know that many of our family, friends and neighbour’s are drowning spiritually. Thus we could say; “How can we help them in their time of crisis?

Beloved, make sure that you know the truth of the Word first as well as having taken a stand on using the “Divine Names of the Father and the Messiah! GO and SHARE the Word and tell them who YaHVaH Elohim is, and that you know that He has called on you as you are fit and obedient, who will without hesitation jump into the water and reach out to the one who is in peril of drowning.

Remember beloved, it was Yahushua the blessed Son and Messiah of YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, who was the one who jumped in the river for us, when we were drowning in sin and we know that he paid the ultimate price. He gave His sinless life as a sacrifice and shed His blood that we may live and have everlasting life because we believed, repented and have promised to live according to His Word and Commandments!

There is a wonderful lesson we can learn from that great friend of Elohim - Avraham - Abraham for he did all he could to bring his fellow man to serve Elohim, and that is precisely why Elohim chose him!

“Do not stand still when your neighbour’s life is in danger.”

*This notation is related to the verse quoted towards the top of the page in the Book of Mattityahu - Matthew 12:11-12 where I placed an *. Some tend to think and sadly others even say that our beloved Saviour broke the Sabbath Law to prove a point and did this on purpose, when He and His Apostles were in the fields and took some of the wheat and ate it on the Sabbath day. But take my word for it this is not so, and below you will soon find out just why!

The reason being the Torah, the Law (Five Books of Moses) only has three Laws regarding the Sabbath! Many people do not realise this, thus let us take a look at them in a reading that contains them together:

“The seventh day shall be a Sanctified day for you, a Sabbath of rest to YHVH. Whoever does any work on it shall be put to death. You shall kindle no fire throughout your dwellings on the Sabbath day.” Shemos - Exodus 35:2-3.

There are other mentions in the Word that include the words, that “No servile work” shall be done. However, all other laws pertaining to the Sabbath are upheld by Israel then and today are 100% man-made by the priests and rabbis and are pure tradition and are NOT from the Almighty or Law! Those so-called religious leaders placed a massive burdens upon the people of Israel and our blessed Messiah spoke out against these laws, as did the Apostles, especially Shaul (Paul) of Tarsus, but sadly those misguided christians confuse these manmade laws with the blessed Law of YaHVaH Elohim, which was upheld by Messiah Yahushua and His Apostles and all the Messianic faithful, the “Little Flock” then until this very day!

“Teach me Your way, O YHVH. I will walk in Your truth.
UNITE MY HEART TO FEAR YOUR NAME!”

Tehillim – Psalms 86:11

May YHVH Elohim bless and keep you in the palm of His hand always, in Messiah Yahushua’s loving Name!

Yahushua said; “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the Prophets: They will all be taught by Elohim. Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from Him comes to Me. No one has seen the Father except the One who is from Elohim; only He has seen the Father. I tell you the truth he who believes has everlasting life.” Yochanan (John) 6:43-48.
