It is a good land

-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.”



Study - Part Two


As we commence Part Two of “Lessons in the Wilderness” I pray that we have prepared ourselves in prayer and asked our Heavenly Father in Messiah’s blessed Name that He will give us discernment and understanding in order that we may grow in His beloved Word. But more so that we will become stronger in faith and closer to Him in spirit and in truth! HalleluYah!

The next two paragraphs come directly from Part One as

The spies had returned with the samples of the giant and delicious fruits. WOW, just one look was enough to convince Israel that the land was indeed a “Good Land that YaHVaH Elohim had given them.” BUT … there was the question of all those giants in the land, how can we even think of entering and fight the giants and there were those walls that reached “up to the sky” Excuse me, they were so high that they actually reached “up to the sky?” Fear tends to cloud men’s mind and things tend to get exaggerated! Then sadly verse 26 states that the people refused to enter into the land and they rebelled against the command of YaHVaH their Elohim! And that is so tragic, had they not seen His mighty acts? Where was their faith, for faith overcomes everything!

Beloved, Israel who had seen the great power of the Almighty from the day the Tabernacle was completed for a pillar of smoke rose from its roof during the day and fire by night, ensuring that the Children of Israel would know that He was with them, in addition, He provided them with manna six days a week, but they had to collect twice the amount on Friday to cover for the Sabbath! But after the “twelve men of you, one of a tribe” having returned from their journey into the land of promise and having seen the wondrous fruits and the goodness of the land, sadly they came back full of fear of other things they had seen! It is sad to learn that fear had stuck not only them but they allowed it to run wild!

Davarim – Deuteronomy One verse 27:

“And you murmured in your tents, and said, Because YHVH hated us, He hath brought us forth out of the land of Egypt, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us.’”

Having read this verse it is tragic knowing what the Almighty had already done for Israel, and here they are, as is stated: “you murmured in your tents.” The Hebrew word for “murmured” is “Ragan” which translates, and means in its fullness as, yes; murmuring, rebellion, backbiting, a backbiter and slander. Today we know it more like gossiping and we all know how dangerous that is, for that occurs from youth to all ages and it does great harm to so many, even to the point that it drives some individuals to suicide! Although today it is through the means of bullying individuals by using Facebook or other internet services as well as harassing and hassling people and or groups into at state, that can bring on fear! The sad fact is it is the way of the evil one who loves fear, as fear generally leads to sin, as does depression, for that is looking to the I, Me and Myself, and that is in the wrong direction! Beloved, we must look forward, just as Shimeon - Peter said a good three times, and that was significant;

“…as you look forward to the day of Elohim and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. But in keeping with His promise we are looking forward to a New Heaven and a New Earth, the home of righteousness. So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with Him.” 2 Shimeon - 2 Peter 3:12-14.

Therefore for people of Israel at the border of Kadesh Barnea to “murmur” is without a doubt one of the most tragic statements I have found in the entire Scriptures, considering all that our Heavenly Father had already done for the Children of Israel. We know from the Word, that He chose a babe who He had hidden amongst the reeds in the Nile whilst the Pharaoh was slaughtering all baby boys! Then amazingly he was found by an Egyptian princess, yet he was looked after by his own mother, for YaHVaH is always in charge of all things that matter in eternal things, and the Princess named him “Moshe” or as most know him these days Moses, which means in Hebrew; “to draw out” (of water). However, from the Egyptian, the translation is somewhat simpler as it means “son.” Regardless the meaning, he was chosen by YaHVaH Elohim for his life was a 120 years (three generations) long miracle! For Moshe lived a life as a prince for forty years, then he lived as a humble shepherd in a dessert environment near Mount Sinai for the next forty years, until he was called by the almighty to return to Egypt and face the Pharaoh! Thus at the age of eighty, he returned with his brother Ah’haron - Aaron and demanded on behalf of Elohim; “Let My People Go.” Then as the Pharaoh stubbornly refused, each time Elohim did an amazing miracle, then only after the terrible tenth plaque from which the faithful of Israel were protected, did the Pharaoh let Israel go to worship their Elohim! Then having let them go he chased them in great anger, Elohim opened the sea before Israel and they could walk through however, the Egyptian army was swallowed up. Then Moshe wandered with Israel throughout the Wilderness for another forty years.

Verses 29 & 30 more states the following:

“Then I said to you; ‘Do not be terrified or afraid of them. YHVH your Elohim, who goes before you, He will fight for you, according to all He did for you in Egypt before your eyes and in the wilderness where you saw how YHVH your Elohim carried you, as a man carries his son, in all the way that you went until you came to this place.’”

With Israel having being sustained with victories over the enemies including whilst in the wilderness, as well as being provided with never ending sustenance and water and so much more, thus considering what YaHVaH Elohim, Sanctified be His Name, had done, yet Israel at large could still not see that He would go before them and open the way, that is if they would only obey Him!

And that beloved is the key for each and everyone of us, for if we are called into His service and are sent to a place that we may not particularly like or even considered to be dangerous, fear not for if it is His will, always remember that “YHVH your Elohim who goes before you” and He has already prepared the way for you. Therefore all you have to do is to be obedient and trust “YHVH your Elohim has carried you” this far, for He will reward your faith in Him! Praise His most Sanctified Name in Yahushua’s blessed Name!

In Verse 31, we read again:

“In the wilderness where you saw how YHVH your Elohim carried you, as a man carries his son, in all the way that you went until you came to this place.”

Yet tragically it continues in verse 32 that “Yet, for all that, you did not believe YHVH your Elohim” and thus all those sins along the way and at this point here at Kadesh Barnea! O Israel, O Israel why have you not learned your lessons, for there have been so many, those in Egypt when the Almighty emancipated you from your slavery and set you free. Yet having been set free through ten mighty miracles, as well as the waters of the sea opening before your eyes and you crossed to the other side and you was redeemed, set free, you also were able to rejoice in the presence of YaHVaH Elohim with all your heart and soul. But soon enough the separation became a burden and many started to look back and commenced to desire those things from the past, just like Lots wife, the only difference was with her, she actually moved back far enough to be caught up in the destruction of Sodom and was turned into a pillar of salt! But Israel looked toward spicy foods and homes, thus it led them back to sin, for that is what happens to all those who tend to look back, as it is Satan’s tool.

Beloved, I hear many speak of sadness and depression. I pray that if any have experienced this or even suffer it, please put it in the hand of Messiah Yahushua, for He will guide you into the right place! We must understand that depression leads to looking back into the self and the past, and no matter what has happened, let it be for that is not what the Almighty has for you! The Apostle Shaul - Paul had just the right attitude:

“… but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of Elohim in Messiah Yahushua.” Philippians 3:13-14.

Praise Yahushua, He is our goal, thus “forget those things that are behind” and do not allow “Satan who leads the whole world astray” (Revelation12:9) to have control over your life for let Messiah Yahushua be Master and Saviour of your life now and forever, and I do mean “Yahushua, the Name above every name!” Beloved, there is no Saviour by any other name! The fact is beloved, that the Name Yahushua and Joshua are the same name, just check the Strongs Hebrew/Greek Concordance numbers: Joshua in the Old Covenant is = OT3091 in the New Covenant = NT 2424 and Jesus = NT2424. Both have the identical name, which is in the Hebrew - “Yahushua!” meaning, “YAH Saves.” Praise Him!

It is time we return to the Israelites in the wilderness, although I must be honest sometimes I tend to call the “Israelites” the “Grizzelites” which is a word in my part of the world (Australia) that really means those who grumble a great deal! And as we read the Word it does seem like a never-ending fight between the Father and those who seem to refuse to obey Him!

Some may attack me for having said this, but in a way I can say it, considering that as a Hebrew I was redeemed back in 1977!

Davarim – Deuteronomy One verse 37:

“YHVH was also angry with me for your sakes, saying, ‘Even you shall not go in there.’”

How tragic, because of the great disobedience of the people YaHVaH Elohim, Sanctify His Name, was angry with Moshe - Moses, but we should ask here what was it really for? Was it just because of what was occurring here or earlier when he struck the rock for water at Meribah? For the answer, I strongly suggest that you read the single page study “the Waters of Meribah.” This is a wonderful and a blessed study! The link is located at the bottom of the page!

However, we should feel for Moshe as he is now 120 years of age and has spent his old age wandering in the wilderness, all because of the ongoing disobedience of the Children of Israel, and yes even his own brother back there at Mt Sinai! Now, he simply could not go on for very soon the end of the road would come for him as he would have to die in the wilderness up on a mountain. But the story does not quite end here!

Emancipation, Separation and Possession:

Did you realise that combined in Part One and already so far in this Part we have covered three very powerful words, the first two “Emancipation” - “Separation” was in the past and it brought on the tragedy of looking back. But now arrives the final word of this trio of words and this one is “Possession.” Way back in verse 8 was a direct order by the Almighty as He told Israel very clearly what they had to do, and that was an order that had to be done!

“Behold I have set the land before you: go in and posses the land.”

There is no doubt about it that the implication is - Go and Obey! But as you will have gathered I continually see the believers in Messiah in the Word and how these same three words actually apply to us, for beloved believe me they do!

Let us commence with the very first word; “Emancipation” and beloved this “liberation,” “setting free” is something that can only come from YaHVaH Elohim, but then it must be through righteousness and faith in the Father and His anointed Messiah, Yahushua in a past tense, thus we must “Believe.

The second word is; “Separation” and this was when we saw Israel leave Egypt and cross the sea in the Wilderness. They were “redeemed and this had to come through repentance and when still in Egypt on that night of their passing of that angel of Elohim, they had to be obedient and cover their “door posts and lintels” as instructed by YaHVaH with the “blood of the lamb without spot and blemish” and eat unleavened bread and the meat of the lamb roasted with fire! Thus it had to be done precisely as instructed.

The same applies to the faithful, for we also can be “separated” from that world of sin, through “redemption” and “repenting” in the blessed “Name above every name,” the Name of Yahushua our beloved Messiah and Saviour!”

The third word is; “Possession” once Israel was obedient they took possession and it was YaHVaH who led them around Jericho in a mighty march with the Ark of the Covenant and with trumpets blowing and the walls eventually fell! It was a great victory!

Yes, once the faithful have repented and live according to the teachings of the Messiah, and beloved I say this for believe me His teachings are very much opposed to that of the churches as they have gone into an ancient Babylonian/Greco/Roman pagan religion with messianic overtones! But Yahushua’s teaching may well surprise you for they say quite the opposite to what pastors and priests will teach you, and who will you trust, men or your Saviour, for it is there in black and white!

In Messiah, we can take “Possession” of life that is in the present and be obedient to Messiah, by being fully immersed in water and receive a life-giving power from the Ruach HaKodesh, the Holy Spirit as we live a fulfilling life in Him. When I speak of a life giving-power from the Holy Spirit, I am not speaking about anything to do with those over the top Pentecostals; no it is living In Him, and living a life as directed by Him in sometimes the most amazing ways!

The Book of Romans is amazingly made up in much the same manner. Chapters 1 to 4 covers “Faith, the Past” - Chapters 5 to 11 covers “Hope, the Future” - whilst Chapters 12 to 16 covers “Love, the Present! I believe that I have made my point!

However, having looked at those three words; Emancipation, Separation and Possession does it not remind you of the story I told in Part One of Lot, for him, his wife and his daughters were in many ways disobedient to YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, for 1. Emancipation - They refused to leave, that the men (angels) had to lead them out of the city. 2. Separation - When they were out, Lot’s wife “tarried” for she hated to leave and desired all her home and other possessions that she had to leave behind. The words “look back” can also mean “turn back” far enough to be caught up in the destructive punishment that occurred and thus she was turned into that pillar of salt! 3. Possession - Elohim commanded Lot to head for a place in the valley, but no he would not have that, for he decided he knew better and chose that place up there up on the mountain and of course it was up there all that great evil took place in due course!

Beloved, remember these three words for they are very important in your life!

Davarim – Deuteronomy One verse 38-39:

Joshua the son of Nun, who stands before you, he shall go in there. Encourage him, for he shall cause Israel to inherit it. Moreover your little ones and your children, who you say will be victims, who today have no knowledge of good and evil, they shall go in there; to them I will give it, and they shall possess it. But as for you, turn and take your journey into the wilderness by the Way of the Red Sea.”

Here Elohim gives very clear instructions that only Joshua and the newborn of Israel will enter the Land and possess it! Whilst everyone else is to return into the wilderness! But the worst part of that instructions was this, for He said; “by the Way of the Red Sea” thus Elohim was saying returning to where you started when you began your travels a long 40 years ago, for it seems that you have learned little to nothing for you continue to fight Me. Possibly in your final years, you will learn to trust Me and die in peace in the wilderness, just as Moshe will.

Having heard this suddenly the Children of Israel seemed to have a complete change of heart No YaHVaH we will go, please let us go into the land and we will fight! But now it is far too late as we will see;

Verses 41-42:

“Then you answered and said to me, ‘We have sinned against YHVH; we will go up and fight, just as YHVH our Elohim commanded us.’ And when every one of you had girded on his weapons of war, you were ready to go up into the mountain. And YHVH said to me, ‘Tell them,’ ‘Do not go up nor fight, for I am not among you; lest you be defeated before your enemies.’”

You see beloved, it seems that Israel had a change of heart, but the truth is that their heart and motive was very wrong! Elohim now clearly says “Do not go, for I am not with you, for you will be smitten” (Paraphrased). But the question is did they take any notice and listen to their Heavenly Father and Creator, the answer is somewhat obvious for I am speaking of my people, a stubborn people that continually squabble a great deal, thus NO they did not!

Verses 43 to 45:

“So I spoke to you; yet you would not listen, but rebelled against the command of YHVH and presumptuously went up into the mountain. And the Amorites who dwelt in that mountain came out against you and chased you as bees do, and drove you back from Seir to Hormah. Then you returned and wept before YHVH, but YHVH would not listen to your voice nor give ear to you.”

Tragically they went, in a way like an army of cranky children who had an argument with their Father, but they would show Him what they could do by themselves! They were going to win this battle for had they not always won every war, the truth is that Israel never won a war, for each battle was won with the assistance of YaHVaH and this time they went directly against His will and command “not to go up nor fight” therefore He would not be with them in battle! It states in verse 44 that “the Amorites chased Israel as bees do” (Paraphrased) thus can you imagine an army so placed that they are all over you just like a swarm of bees, and we know how bad that can be and that is why it was written here, for the Israelites were so badly smitten that they wept before their Heavenly Father but He would not listen to them, for they were completely disobedient and were not repentant in their weeping just crying in their pains!

The concluding verse of Chapter One verse 46:

“So you remained in Kadesh many days, according to the days that you spent there.”

Thus here they remained due to their sinfulness, which is such a tragedy, but beloved Lot’s wife, and Lot himself was redeemed, saved from that place of horrid evil and sin, yet she could not leave the past behind and lost her salvation, her life! Israel was redeemed in faith and action through the shed blood of the lamb without spot and blemish out of that evil and pagan country, where they were being held as slaves in severe and painful bondage. Yet, although most of the Children of Israel had long forgotten their Elohim of their fathers and were worshipping the various pagan gods of Egypt, whilst only a very small number continued to believe in Elohim. But Elohim did hear their cry of pain and bondage, but remember this was not a cry out towards YaHVaH Elohim to come and redeem them, no the cry was just related directly to their own sorrows and pain!

Yet, the Almighty sent them a man, Moshe who miraculously was saved from the water as a babe, lived for 40 years as an Egyptian prince, then as a lowly shepherd until called by YaHVaH Elohim to Mt Sinai and sent back to the Pharaoh to redeem His people. And then Moshe led Israel for 40 years in the wilderness right up to where we are in this chapter One of Davarim - Deuteronomy, Kadesh Barnea!

In Conclusion:

What Lessons Have we Learned?

I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.” Yochanan - John 15:5-8.

“I Am the vine” that is our Master and Saviour Yahushua, Blessed be His Name! He is our provision a far greater one than that earlier saviour of the Children of Israel, Moshe – Moses who was only a part redeemer, but he was certainly not without sin, for when he was at Meribah he sinned, and  believe me, it had nothing to do with him striking the rock with his rod. But you need to read the study below that!

Yahushua was the Lamb of YaHVaH Elohim without spot and blemish and He did not sin in any shape or form! Some will say that He was rather rude at some times, however He said what was needed to be said to those who were followers of evil and would not follow the ways as given in The Word! In the Tanach, the Old Covenant, just read Yeshayahu – Isaiah, Yirmyahu – Jeremiah and the prophet Eliyahu - Elijah and you will find that much the same was said to all those who were against YaHVaH Elohim. In fact it makes what our beloved Messiah said very mild!

The creator from the very beginning gave man laws of all that he was able to do and that was just about everything possible, but there was only one single thing in Adams entire universe as he knew it that he was not permitted to do: and that was NOT to eat the fruit of that tree!

And the YHVH Elohim commanded the man, saying, ‘Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.’” Bereshis - Genesis 2:16-17.

We all know the story, Satan who used a serpent beguiled the woman and she ate, and her husband then also took a bite and the damage was done! Although they were thrown out with massive consequences for all mankind, Elohim had already put in place a plan of redemption from the very beginning, for He knew of man’s weakness, and throughout every single book of the Torah (Five Books of Moshe) the thread and prophecy regarding the Messiah continues, as well as a very powerful picture looking forward to how the future fellowship of the faithful would be and we can see this by looking at Israel. You might say they were so very disobedient, you have been writing about it! Well so has the church, for sadly it has gone far astray as they have at large followed the ways of Romanism! Yes, many churches have left that church, but it has retained most of its doctrines and festivals, and we must not forget that, and are we so stubborn that we cannot see that!

Will we come back to our Saviour, or end up in the wilderness? But we are saved you say, Once saved always saved, that is what we are clearly taught! Let me ask you, who was it that gave you that teaching? It was that man who nailed his thesis to the church door and this is the same man, Martin Luther who wrote his last book entitled; “Von den Juden und Ihren Lügen” or in English Of the Jews and Their Lies.” In 1543, he wrote some of the most evil things which led to the murder of so many German Jewish men, women and children and the burning of Synagogues, homes and schools for his followers has such a hatred of these Jews, all instilled by Luther! Much later, it was a young man who read his book and he would use it and he actually would read parts of it out proudly on German Radio, his name was Adolf Hitler and he used Luther’s book as his Manifesto for the slaughter of the Jews of Europe!

Will you place your faith in the hands of a man who is hailed as a saint by so many, just forget that he was a “Jew hater” and directed his followers to go and slaughter innocent Jewish children, I suppose that must be all right for the “Christian cause!” Well not in our Saviour Yahushua’s cause for Luther will see the “second death” he ensured that by his own actions!

Beloved as Yochanan - John 15:6 clearly states; “If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire and they are burned.” Just as lots wife who was taken out of that evil city of Sodom, thus redeemed from the destruction to come, but she just would not let it go and she not just looked back, but she turned back and was caught up and was destroyed by that horrible downpour and turned into that pillar. There was also those three thousand of the Children of Israel at Mt Sinai who refuse to repent for worshipping the golden calf who were destroyed by Elohim, yet, remember they were redeemed by the shed blood of the lamb, a picture of Yahushua our blessed Saviour!

Beloved nothing has changed, for we are to retain our relationship with our Elohim and Yahushua by doing what He so clearly told us to do when He was with us on the earth, “keep my commandments.”

“I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” Mattityahu - Matthew 5:18-19.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, 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. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.” Yochanan - John 1:1-4.

Looking at the two verses above, it becomes obvious who gave the Laws up on Mount Sinai in the first place it was YaHVaH Elohim, who is the Word, the Word that became our Messiah Yahushua! And He clearly said that “not the least stroke of a pen will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.” And of course beloved that is until after the Seventh Feast of YHVH (Tabernacles) when on the “Eighth Day”, which is a very special Sabbath and event, will be time for the New Heaven and New Earth with a New Jerusalem and mighty Temple as described in the Word! Then it will be all finished!

Beloved, Sunday is not the Scriptural day of rest, it is the Seventh-day that is the Scriptural Sabbath Day, it was the church of Rome that changed it as it was a day to worship not the Son of Elohim, but the sun god! We need to understand that SUNday was a rest day for people of the Roman Empire whose religion was Mithraism, which was a form of worship of the sun godMithra.” Let me prove this with what Emperor Constantine wrote when he actually made sunday law:

The first National SUNday Law in history was issued. This was the first blue law to be issued by a civil government. Below is the text of Constantine’s decree, dated - March 7, 321 AD:

“On the venerable Day of the Sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed.” (Codex Justinianus 3.12.3).

Roman Papacy officially confirmed the SUNday Law at the Council of Laodicea, which was ruled over by Constantine in 364 A.D., and it decreed as follows;

“Christians shall not Judaize and be idle on Saturday but will work on that day; but the Lord’s day they shall especially honour and being Christians they shall, if possible, do no work on that day. If, however, they are found Judaizing (meaning keeping the Sabbath), they shall be shut out from Christ.” (Strand, op. cit., citing Charles J. Hefele, A History of the Councils of the Church, 2 [Edinburgh, 1876] 316).

The Roman Catholic Cardinal Gibbons freely admits, “You may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we (the Catholic Church) never sanctify.” (Faith of Our Fathers, 92nd ed., p. 89).

Thus beloved, I pray that just this one example will have you returning and choosing Yahushua THE Messiah instead of all those erroneous teachings that you may have been used to in the churches, such as, “Once Saved Always Saved” that is as clearly proved in the Scriptures through the Words of Messiah a clear lie, let alone it coming from a man who had a very evil mind and even sought to murder the Children of Israel!

In the Book of Obadiah it speaks of Edom, which is a tribe that came out of Esau, and when Israel desired to pass through its territory, they treated their brethren very harshly and Elohim gave them retribution for their harshness, and this is a warning to everyone who treats Israel in a harsh and a poor manner. And we need to remember that this verse in context was directed against those who were against Israel;

“The day of YHVH is near for all nations. As you have done, it will be done to you; your deeds will return upon your own head.” Verse 15

Beloved, in Yahushua is our Hope for He is our Rock and our Salvation and sure Foundation! For it is ONLY in and through the Name of Yahushua, the Name above every name that there is Hope of Life Everlasting!

If you decide to remain with the name of Jesus, I am afraid that  you will either remain at Kadesh Barnea, or in the Wilderness, but I am sad to say that there will be no place for you on that day when He comes; “with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of Elohim.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18), but sadly those who remain with the greater churches will not be able to; “comfort one another with these words.”

Can or Should we Seek a Reward?

The answer is quiet simple, yes we should, in fact Yahushua demands that we seek it! But who will give the reward? Elohim or men, it is your choice, and your choice will determine the outcome, Choose Messiah Yahushua you will have chosen the Creators way and you will be richly blessed! But choose the way of the church and a false religion that is sadly based on a great deal of paganism, with some twisted truth sprinkled in you will head, I am so sorry to say for the pit!

Why does Elohim Offer a Reward?

1.    LOOK – We are to read and search His Word for what YHVH Elohim and Yahushua had told us, be it in the Old or New Covenants! “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find” (Mattityahu - Matthew 7:7). As we can see even as we seek and look we receive a rewarded!

2.    RUN – We shall be blessed by Elohim whilst we run the race heading “for the prize”: “One thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of Elohim in Messiah Yahushua.” Phil 3:13-14.

3.    CONSCIENTIOUSNESS - We must be able to stand strong and continue in our faith and uphold the teachings that were given to us by YaHVaH Elohim, which Yahushua our blessed Saviour so clearly confirmed, for we should remember that the 10 Commandments are all fully in force. Yahushua spoke about most of the 10 Commandments during the Sermon on the Mount! Remember what Shaul - Paul said;

Let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Yahushua as the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the stake/tree despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of Elohim.” Hebrews 12:1-2.

4. SUFFER - Yes, it is often difficult to stand strong because of your faith in Messiah Yahushua and your refusal not to uphold those ancient evil satanic pagan festivals that are based on pagan gods such as the goddess “Eastra”, thus “Easter” with all those fertility rabbits and eggs, for they represent her “moon egg that she laid! Then there is what is now called Christmas, which is in reality, if you will only look it up something very evil, but the Roman Church simply put their Jesus in the middle of it and said he was born on that day. The problem is, the Scripture proves otherwise, you see the popes and cardinals and bishops never thought that those nobodies, the people would ever read the Scripture, thus what would they know? But we do! In addition true believers uphold the Seventh Day Sabbath, that is from Friday evening from around when it begins to get dark to much the same time on Saturday. It is a wonderful day set apart unto YaHVaH Elohim and Messiah to praise and Worship Him and to rest. Yet because of our differences we often receive ongoing arguments from those who do not agree with our faith and are just like those unbelieving Hebrews in the wilderness, but we stand strong in our faith. Romans chapter 18, verse 17 states the following:

“… and if children, then heirs - heirs of Elohim and joint heirs with Messiah, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.”


We could well ask ourselves, can we possibly know what the reward will be? Numbers are important, 7 and 40 are two of the most vital numbers of the entire Scriptures and I have spoken much about the number 40, and it being a generation, etc! But what about that wonderful number of 7, there are 7 days in a week and we are to work, or “toil” for 6 of these and “… on the seventh day He rested from all His work. And Elohim blessed the Seventh Day and sanctified it.” Bereshis - Genesis 2:2-3.

However, I can tell you in short, that the Seven Rewards are; The 7 Rs! 1. Responsibility; 2. Riches; 3. Rest; 4. Rejoicing; 5. Radiance; 6. Renown and finally 7. Royalty as you will be wearing a crown!

Now I have given you something to look for in the blessed Scriptures, for you will find each of the seven rewards, or blessings that will be given to the faithful who know the Name of the Father YaHVaH Elohim and the Messiah Yahushua our blessed Saviour, who gave His life that we who believe, have repented of our sins and been immersed in water in His Name and now live according to His Word, we will have the promise of entering into the Millennium Reign with Yahushua and then when You Father, have created the New Heaven and the New Earth that all the faithful will have our place there. We give You Thanks and Praise in Yahushua’s most wonderful 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.
