--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
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
This study is based on a message I gave back in the early 1980s and have repeated it once or twice since in various parts of the world. There is no doubt that the Book of Yo’el - Joel is a powerful one especially if we consider his first four verses, although there is so much more to this book and I have included the highlights, which will be followed up by “Page Two” containing an overall summery, complete with a commentary and verses from each chapter.
However, on this study you will discover that
I will include several other Scriptural events into the
The book of
However, if we look at the earth right now, it
will seem that man is having the upper hand being guided by
Revelation Chapter 4 verse 1 and goes right through to the end of the Book speaks about the “Day of YaHVaH” or “The Day of The LORD.”
It is important that we understand the following two points here: 1. The ancient original texts of the Brit Chadashah, the New Covenant reveals that the *Tetragrammaton - “YHVH” was used throughout most books including Revelation! 2. We need to have some comprehension what that phrase meant to the Children of Israel and Judah, for the book of Revelation is very much a Hebrew book, and I honestly do not think that many believers in Messiah actually realise this.
In the book of Revelation there are more than 298 quotations from the Tanach, the Old Covenant. Thus beloved, if we do not understand the Old Covenant it will be impossible to understand the book of Revelation in its context. Sadly many think that the Tanach - Old Covenant is out of date and obsolete. Sorry, you would be VERY WRONG, for it is very much the opposite as it is very much up to date!
Others will tell you that “In the Old Covenant there is the God of wrath. whilst in the New Covenant there is the God of Love!” What utter rubbish and what an insult that is to YaHVaH Elohim our Creator and Yahushua our loving Saviour, for let us consider who He really is and how every one who has made that Satanic statement has insulted the Almighty and the Messiah! Let test the blessed Scriptures and see if any part of that statement can possibly be true?
Let us first turn to Yochanan Chapter 1;
“In the beginning was the Word, and
the Word was with Elohim (God), and the Word was Elohim. He was in the
beginning with Elohim. All things were made through Him, and without Him
nothing was made that was made.” Yochanan -
Let us briefly look at what those three verses
tell us. Verse 1 tells us that “In the beginning was the Word,” who
speaks of course of He would be born as a Man on the earth, Yahushua the
Messiah! The second part of that verse confirms that He was in fellowship,
thus very close with
Messiah Yahushua said in Mattityahu - Matthew 22:37–40.
“You shall love YHVH your Elohim with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And the second is - you shall love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the prophets.”
*Please Note: The Tetragrammaton or the four letter Hebrew Name of - YHVH was used in the original Hebrew texts of the Brit Chadashah, New Covenant. This can be proven without a doubt, read YHVH – the Divine Name in the Gospels.
The beautiful statement in Mattityahu - Matthew 22:37–40 by our beloved Redeemer Yahushua is total proof that both the Old and the New Covenant’s contains the Gospel of love! But for all those who have said that, what you have said sounds jus fine but … “In the Old Covenant we read of God sending Israel out to war and to kill, kill, kill, which is far from being a God of love.” Frankly, I feel sorry for those who continue on that sad line!
Obviously we need to put things back into
perspective, for frankly it is so easy to speak as we live in a totally
However, whilst in the wilderness
“You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against the sons of your own people, but you shall love your neighbour as yourself: I am YHVH.” Vayikra - Leviticus 19:18.
“And you shall love YHVH your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength.” Davarim - Deuteronomy 6:5
Thus, we now discover that our blessed redeemer Yahushua did not introducing a new law after all when He named the two “Love commandments.” The truth is our beloved Saviour was simply quoting the His earlier Scriptures, and yes at that time they were the only Scriptures in existence in those days that where written on parchment scrolls of the Tanach, the Old Covenant, and the first part came directly from the “Law of Moshe” the famous “Shema” - “Hear O Israel” Deut 6:4-5, being the Jewish confession of faith that is recited by every Jew twice a day; and the second part “Love your neighbour” was taken from the book known for its exposition of the ceremonial law, the book of Vayikra – Leviticus 19:18.
Thus once again we learn that the Tanach is the Foundation of the Brit Chadashah, the New Covenant for if you take it away we would loose the entire foundation of, let us say a building sitting on unstable ground and it would soon crumble and disappear.
Tragically the pagan church of Rome has tried very hard from the beginning to turn the Messiah into a Gentile that is why Messiah Yahushua’s Name was changed to a totally foreign one ‘Jesus,’ and sadly this name has no meaning whatsoever and it has no Hebraic background!
See Strongs: NT:2424:

However, Praise YaHVaH Elohim, more and more
of the faithful are returning to the Truth of the Word of Elohim, and they are
once again celebrating the Scriptural “Feasts of YaHVaH” as
prescribed in Vayikra – Leviticus 23 and they have ditched the feast of
the goddess “Ishtar” -Easter and the Roman Catholic “Mass for
Christ” which they pretend is their Jesus’ birthday, and we know
with assurance that it cannot be the birth date of Messiah Yahushua, for
neither sheep or shepherds sleep in the fields in the freezing cold of a snowy
winter in Israel! The faithful in Messiah know that our Saviour was born during
one of the major Feasts, in September/October, and at a time when Hebrew men
from all over the world come to
But beloved, we need to return to the book of

These are all valid questions to ask! But we cannot get the best out of this book, unless we are able to answer them.
At the time almost all of
The above is just a short summery of the contents of the three chapter book, but even though it may not look like there is much in it, but believe me there is great teaching to be found in the book of Yo’el! I am sure that by the time you come to the end of this study you will be richly blessed!
Lets us start with Verse 1 – commencing with the verse in Hebrew, then the translation.
If you have read any of the other studies
online you will already know that names play a most important role in the Word
of Elohim. Thus let us first look at
Although Yah or YaHVaH is the blessed Memorial Name of Elohim, but the Children of Israel sadly will not even use His “Memorial Name” - although He commanded it to be “remembered forever.” Instead they use an alternative like; “HaSHEM” – Hebrew for “the name” or “Adonai” meaning “the LORD,” and it is so tragic that YHVH is written as LORD in all Bibles in capitals, instead of using YHVH or - However, there is a superb translation, which we highly recommend and it is “The Scriptures” and it uses the Name of the father in Hebrew as - and Yahushua also in Hebrew as . Other names are also corrected, but it is fully indexed and it has explanatory notes and indexed, etc. Contact us and we will advise you where to obtain a copy.
The reason for
“Moreover Elohim said to Moshe, ‘Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: YHVH Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Avraham, the Elohim of Yitzchak, and the Elohim of Ya’akov, has sent me to you. This is My Name forever, and this is My Memorial to all generations.’”
Because in the Hebrew, the rabbis claim that
the word “forever,”
However, it is rather strange but for some 18 times the very same word “Le’Olam” occurs in the Word, written in the very same manner as in Shemos - Exodus 3:15, thus in the so-called defective manner. However, each time rabbis translate it and they insist that it means as absolutely as “Forever,” i.e. The promise Elohim makes to the Children of Yisroel in Shemos - Exodus 32:13;
“I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and I will give your descendants all this land I promised them, and it will be their inheritance le’Olam - forever.’”
Due to the error of the rabbis, whenever the Memorial Name of Elohim appears in the Tanach, it is read as “Adonai – LORD,” or “HaShem, the Name.” However, at the same time, the Hebrew word for “Memorial” is “Zecher,” which literally means – “to proclaim,” or “mention.” Should the blessed Memorial Name of Elohim have been concealed or mentioned? Read the authors study - “The Memorial Name.”
In our “Little Flock” fellowship,
we do not uphold any of the rabbinic Laws or their ways, but desire to follow
the Word of YaHVaH Elohim. Yet it has been said to me, “but brother, it
seems that you do not respect the rabbis?” Frankly, no I do not, for they
teach error, and they have lead
The book of
Living in the truth of Elohim means having to make changes in your life and living according to His will! But, these days it is just like it was in the time of Yo’el, sinfulness, the self as well as paganism is sadly all to rife.
The sad fact is, it is also rife in the church
that at large for it follows so many customs that have been cleverly introduced
by the Evil One, which he cleverly did through the “Roman Catholic
church” which is based on the Babylonian religion with bits of what is
called “christianity” and its evil instigator of many new
doctrines, who was a man who was a Samaritan sorcerer who was ostracised by the
Apostle Shime’on – Peter and he went to Rome and commenced a new
religion that was mostly pagan but with bits of the Hebrew Messianic thrown in.
He became the first bishop of

Well do you not feel sorry for these poor deluded people for they will have to face the Two Witnesses during the Great Tribulation and go through the time of Elohim’s Wrath! But what about your own church who will continue to force you to celebrate the pagan feasts of Easter which is the goddess “Easter” and this feast is over three thousand years old, and the egg, well you would not believe what that means, but it is so sick, it would make you throw up, if I told you it here! And Xmas is the feast of the Winter Solstice, and ancient pagan festival and has nothing to do with our beloved Messiah! Beloved, it is simply astonishing; once man has rejected the truth, he tends to fall into a life of traditions, lies, and pagan gods and beliefs.
Let us return to the book
“Hear this,” (or better “listen,”) you old men and give ear all you inhabitants of the land.”
Why does YHVH make specific mention the older
generation? The book of
To understand the things of those times, we need some dates. Dates and places are therefore very important in Scripture.
Let us therefore look at the dates the books of the prophets were written. These dates are all approximate of course. In the case of Ezekiel, he prophesied over a long period, thus, the date is only the starting point. However, it is good to get things in order.
Book (regular names) Approx Date
Hosea / Amos 760.
Malachi 433 . The Jewish Tanach has these books in a different order.
These Books covers some 400 years –
between 835 and 433 BC, thus is also important to note that many of these
prophets came before the 1st.Assyrian invasion. However in the book of
We can break it down even further. First, we
find History, then retrospect and Prospect. That is what
There is another phrase, or word which occurs in this book … “Gather the elders in the congregation” 1:14 – “Gather the congregation and the elders” 2:16 – “Gather the nation” 3:2 - and “Gather together – (speaking to all nations)” 3:11.
It is not easy to make a clear-cut distinction
between the paragraphs of
If you are wondering what that means, let me explain. Just look at Yeshayahu - Isaiah 53, where the prophet speaks in the future, looking back at an event, which had not happened yet.
“But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.” Yeshayahu - Isaiah 53:5.
That is what is called, written in the future,
past tense and
Shortly, I shall go into the detail of what chapter 1 verses 1 to 4 are all about!
But here is a short analysis of the three chapters.
Ch 1. Is about the locust plaque that has already happened.
Ch 2. Is about judgements, which was yet
Ch 3. Is in prospect. A view of what has happened in the past, thus let us be careful what is going to happen in the future.
We will look at this, as we venture through
the book of
Some of you may already be asking, “well brother, when are you getting to chapter 2:28, and the dreams and visions bit?”
Let me say right here and now, we must study
the book in its order, so we may fully understand what YaHVaH is saying to
We should understand this very Hebraic Tanach, the Old Covenant in order that we will be able to fully understand the equally Hebraic Brit Chadashah, the New Covenant especially the difficult sections such as the Book of Revelation, for as I said it is made up mostly from the Tanach! As are many parts of the Gospels, as we have already seen, and I have shown you just one example.
Let us now read Ch 1:3.
“Tell your sons about it, and let your sons tell their sons, and their sons the next generation.”
This verse provides the emphasis of family responsibilities for parents to teach their children. Especially in these modern days parents at large have disobeyed this command, thus we have seen so much erroneous teachings enter into our schools, including the christian ones who now generally teach about evolution, which has become the norm and it is almost the excepted belief amongst the average person on the street, thanks to the Media and then the large numbers Gay and Lesbian as well as New Age teachers! It is a tragedy! You may ask me, “Surely not in christian schools, brother?” Sorry, yes for many of these schools and churches are guiding many of our children right into hell. Therefore, parents have a huge responsibility in Elohim, to teach them those things which are right and true!

Beloved, we are now entering into some real
meat of the Word, for a locust invasion had already occurred and the people of
The four stages of the life cycle of the
locust in this passage are; “Gazam”
- “Arbeh” - “Yalek” and “Chasil” in Hebrew. And beloved these are not merely
names, but each word, or name is numerical and it has a rich and an important
meaning! The Hebrew alphabet as some will know is also
Thus let us look a little closer into these four words.
1… Palmerworm = the gnawing locust – Gazam = 50 years.
2… Locust = the swarming locust - Arbeh = 208 years.
3… Cankerworm = the licking locust – Yalek = 140 years.
4… Caterpillar = the consuming locust – Chasil = 108 years.
Go and check your history and you will find
that these four nations governed
Verse 7 tells us that the land had been eaten clean, and the chapter continues to say that there was nothing left to even provide an offering unto YaHVaH.
“It has laid waste my vines and ruined my fig trees. It has stripped off their bark and thrown it away, leaving their branches white.”
The priests had nothing to do, they were commanded to gird themselves with sackcloth and mourn. The elders and all the people were now in mourning.
“Be ye ashamed, O ye husbandmen; howl, O ye vinedressers, for the wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field has perished.” Verse 11.
The people had to be ashamed. Why? They
had to be ashamed because of their grievous sin, which had brought upon them
this time of mourning. It is a shameful thing for any land to suffer such a
severe drought, or a massive plaque by the direct hand of
We all know that the prophet Eliyahu - Elijah
who was one of the most remarkable and faithful servants of Elohim, but at the
very beginning of his ministry we discover that he suddenly arrives at the
grand Royal Palace and blatantly walks into the court, he walks right up to the
King and stands before him and declares a powerful but a short, but an
extremely stern message! Then as soon as he completed His message, what does he
do, he simply turns his back on the King and walks out on him and the entire
court. Here we can see that the prophet Eliyahu had no fear of any man as
obviously he completely trusted
Those who have studied the Word and, or history will know that when it comes to Royal Households, especially in those times there is a list of defined protocols that have be adhered to as commanded by the court. Should anyone break even the smallest letter of the protocols, they must be put to death instantly right there and then, and that would even include the Queen, for she also would have to make an appointment to speak with the King when he holds court.
Then whilst in the court, the King would raise his sceptre to give permission for the appointed person to speak with him to approach, and only then that person would be permitted to speak. And should the Queen speak without having made a prior arrangement, she would die!
But here stands Eliyahu - Elijah boldly before the King and not only does he walk into the court without permission, dressed the rugged way he is, being a mountain man, but he speaks without permission. Thus, according to Royal protocol he should have been automatically put to death on the spot.
Worse still Eliyahu even proceeds by disgracing the King with a declaration that humiliates the King and then the prophet of Elohim just turns his back on him and walks out. Now, that is what I call “Chutzpah” being a Jewish word for “impertinence!”
Let us quickly explore this amazing scene and
we will understand what Eliyahu said to
“As YHVH, the Elohim of
To fully understand what the implications of his statement, we must consider the following.
(1) “As YHVH Elohim of Israel lives, before whom I stand.”
Here we see that Eliyahu gave his authority, for the truth is that he stood before the King in the Name of YHVH!
(2) “There shall be no dew or rain for these years”
Eliyahu now threatens the King with a drought.
(3) “Until I say so” or “according to my word.”
These are Eliyahu’s concluding words, in which we see his immeasurable faith.
When Eliyahu said, “before whom I stand,” this was a massive insult to the King for it contained the following implication.
“You may be the King be sitting there on your throne, but I am not standing before you, for I only stand with and before my Elohim.” (Paraphrased).
I firmly believe, as we read about
Eliyahu’s stand before
Thus in the case of Eliyahu, the sinful King and the nation would have to suffer physically with no rain, but also spiritually with the removal of the Word of YaHVaH Elohim with the removal with Elohim’s man, being the prophet Eliyahu.
However, the prophet
Yo’el had a very different message, one
that would see both the people and the nation conquered by not one but four
nations over four different periods! In addition
It might surprise you, but he was not just speaking to;
1…. In Chapter One he addresses “all who live in the land” verse 2.
2… In Chapters Two and Three he does not
address the Twelve Tribes of Israel as such, but instead he addresses the inhabitants

There is a description of how to blow trumpets in Bamidbar - Numbers chapter 10. There we read of two silver trumpets.

loaves of unleavened bread at “Shavous” the “Feast of
Weeks”? This is beloved, because
Vayikra - Leviticus 23 gives us a clear picture
of the “Feasts of YHVH,” which
The first four Feasts have already been fulfilled.
(1) Pesach - Passover - The shed Blood of the lamb.
(2) Hag HaMatzot - Unleavened Bread – Yahushua who was without Spot and Blemish.
(3) Bikkurim - Firstfruits – The Resurrection
(4) Shavous - Feast of Weeks (50) – The
After Shavous there is a space of four months,
representing the age of the faithful in Yahushua. Then comes the fifth Feast,
In addition the true believer should be celebrating the “Feasts of YaHVaH” that our loving Heavenly Father gave us, for each of them speaks so clearly of our beloved Messiah Yahushua!
With the first 4 Feasts having been fulfilled by our Saviour the next feast to be fulfilled will be the Feast of Trumpets.
The prophetic nature of this feast is based on
the sound of a Shofar (Rams Horn),
and will be fulfilled next! But there are two “Trumpets” in
“Blow the trumpet in
The trumpet in Verse 1 is the sound of
Alarm, and in Verse 15 it is the sound of sacred assembly!
Beloved, tell your children about the things
However we must do it right and be careful how to use the Word, for many mistranslate it, for let me briefly cover two verses are that often quoted by believers who support Israel from the book of Yeshayahu – Isaiah taken from chapter 40:1-2.
The word that is translated as “Comfort” in Hebrew is “Nachum” which in Hebrew also means, “Repent.” Thus the Comfort being offered here is based wholly on having repented FIRST!
“Speak lovingly to
Again I would like to deviate and teach you
something quite remarkable based on this Scripture. You have already learned
that “Comfort” is entirely related to “repentance”,
Yeshayahu - Isaiah spoke the Word that Elohim had given him, that clearly stated, “She has received from YaHVaH’s hand double for all her sins.” What would really come “from YaHVaH’s hand” and what was meant by the word “double?” The word in Hebrew for "double" is “Kephal.” The first time this word is used in the Scriptures is when it speaks of the high priests breastplate.
“They made the breastplate square by doubling it; a span was its length and a span its width when doubled.” Shemos - Exodus 39:9.
The embroidered cloth behind the breastplate was folded “double – kephal” to form a pocket which would carry “the Urim and the Thummim.”
“Then he put the breastplate on him and he put the Urim and the Thummim in the breastplate” Vayikra - Leviticus 8:8.
Obviously, “kephal – double”
is a very special word with a particular meaning. Let us look at other Hebrew
words for double. Shemos - Exodus 22:4 states, “If the theft is certainly
found alive in his hand, whether it is an ox or donkey or sheep, he shall
restore double … shenayim.” In this case, the
thief would be fined double the value of the theft. In Bereshis - Genesis
43:12 another word for double is used when
Thus, when we read in Yeshayahu - Isaiah “For she hath received from YHVH hand double (kephal) for all her sins” we can be assured this has a very special and an important and even a prophetic meaning. The Word of Elohim contains many wonderful treasures, especially when the Word is read in Hebrew with the understanding of the ancient Hebraic times, and also to whom it was addressed?
Elohim blessed be He, speaks to His people in a language that is clearly understood and often using the customs of the time. If we look back into the ancient customs of Israel the picture becomes so very clear in relation to many Scriptures, but this is lost to christians, but as an ex orthodox Hebrew believer I am fortunate to have understanding of the Scriptural Hebrew as well as ancient Hebrew customs having also been an Scriptural archaeologist in Israel and having spent time in the British Museum.
It is quite within the rules of Hebrew grammar to supply the indefinite article to help to convey the proper sense of a word into English. Thus, we can now translate the verse as follows, “For she has received from YaHVaH’s hand a double for all her sins” Was there such a thing as “a double, a kephal” Yes there was!
Let me illustrate this with a fictional story based on actual Hebrew customs from Biblical days.
Several days later a wealthy man who knows
Joash to be an honourable man, looks at the notice of debt and decides to do
something for him in his hour of great need. He folds the notice double
and writes on it, “If the creditors named on this list will apply
directly to me I will pay the amounts owing by Joash the spice merchant upon
proof of debt.” He then signs it, “Eliezer ben
Having done this, Eliezer ben
Eliezer double folded the debt in the same way the cloth of the breastplate was folded. It is interesting to note that when the notice was folded, the details of the debt were hidden from public gaze. Eliezer was a good man, a fine double indeed!
This is what Elohim did for
“Speak comfort to
Beloved, just think about it, what a wonderful Eternal Father we have, for He gave Israel “a double” – Yahushua, the Lamb of Elohim who shed His blood so that all who would believe and repent and be immersed would be redeemed from their sins. Now that is the same “double” that every soul in the world who are not as yet saved as yet needs!
But sadly when our blessed Saviour was with us on the earth, many of the nation of Judah and the people of Israel during that time did not believe, but, praise Him; we do know for a fact that there were thousands of faithful when He was with us and there were many more after He ascended back to heaven!
As Elohim had spoken those famous words to
Yeshayahu - Isaiah, He, like
Yahushua the Messiah is our and
“If we confess our sins, He is

unrighteousness” 1 Yochanan – 1

who believe and repent are forgiven of their sins! This is the message we are
to Proclaim boldly to the Children of Israel (if so led by the Sanctified
Spirit) but certainly unto all this evil world. And the faithful in Yahushua
the Messiah are to do this not in some underhanded, go gently way, but to go
forth boldly as

I pray, beloved that we have understood what YaHVaH is saying to us in His Word.
Do you remember the day you first believed, repented, and accepted Yahushua THE Messiah as the Saviour of your life? Do you remember the joy that you had? Well, do not let this joy ever fail. Just let the joy grow, as you grow in the Messiah Yahushua!

there is a “locusts of tradition” in the lives of many in

A terrible plague of locusts is followed by a
severe famine throughout the land.
But the “Day of YaHVaH” Jerusalem was indeed coming and this time the dreaded locusts would have seemed as gnats in comparison, compared to His judgment that was about to come upon them!
Beloved, as we have learned earlier, the four
stages (life cycle) of the locusts prophetically represented the four nations
that would invade possess
The overriding theme of the Book of
Yo’el is the “Day of YaHVaH,” a day of Elohim’s
wrath and judgment – the Book of Revelation. This is the Day in which
Elohim reveals His attributes of wrath, power and holiness, and it is a
terrifying day to His enemies. In the first chapter, the “Day of YaHVaH”
is experienced historically by the plague of locusts upon the land. Chapter
2:1-17 is a transitional chapter in which
Without repentance, judgment will be harsh,
thorough and certain. Our trust should not be in our possessions but in YaHVaH
our Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name!
“Seek YHVH while he may be found; call on Him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to YHVH, and He will have mercy on him, and to our Elohim, for He will freely pardon” Yeshayahu - Isaiah 55:6-7.
For those who wish to accept Yahushua for the very first time, or others who may need to accept Him who is THE genuine and true Messiah for the very first time, may I suggest you say the prayer as shown below, and you can be assured that Yahushua will bless you richly!
“If anyone is thirsty, let him come
to Me and drink. Whoever believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, streams of
living water will flow from within him.” Yochanan -
I pray that our Heavenly Father, through His beloved Son has already touched you! If so, please read the following prayer and see if you are ready to make that commitment today. If so, say it out loud unto our Heavenly Father in the blessed Name of Yahushua The Messiah! Then believe me, He will take you unto His bosom and give you all of His loving care and as you continue with your life in faith, walking according to His Word, study and in prayer, He will work in your life that will without doubt change you for the better spiritually and in many other ways!
Yahushua I invite You to come into my heart and into my life now and with Your loving grace will I serve You all the remaining years of my life. Thank you so much Yahushua for You loved me enough that You gave Your life for me on that horrid stake (the cross) and for having cleansed me from all my sins, as You shed Your Precious Blood. Blessed Saviour, I ask that through Your loving grace and the Sanctified Spirit that You will lead and guide me in the right direction, in order that I will take the right path, for it is my desire to walk in Your truth and I give You praise and honour now and forever!
In Yahushua’s Name I pray
Note: “HalleluYAH” means “Praise YaHVaH.”
If you have prayed the above prayer, you are welcome to email me and share something about yourself, that is if you wish to do so. This is in order that I will be able to pray with you as well as for you!
Please be assured you will not be placed on some mailing list or be followed up, for we will only write/answer you if you have requested to be contacted for further information, for obviously we are more than happy to guide you along your way in Messiah and the Word!
In the meantime please accept the following Psalm as a special blessing and I suggest that you also read it out aloud and receive a special blessing!
“Oh, sing to YHVH a new song! Sing to YHVH, all the earth. Sing to YHVH, bless His Name; proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.
Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples. For YHVH is great and greatly to be praised; He is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are idols, but YHVH made the heavens. honour and majesty are before Him; strength and beauty are in His Sanctuary.
Give to YHVH, O families of the peoples, give to YHVH glory and strength. Give to YHVH the glory due His Name; bring an offering, and come into His courts.
Oh, worship YHVH in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth. Say among the nations, ‘YHVH reigns; the world also is firmly established, it shall not be moved; He shall judge the peoples righteously.’
Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and all its fullness; Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it. Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice before YHVH.
For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with righteousness and the peoples with His truth.”
“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!

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
