--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 used in
the study 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.”
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!
RMI Ministries and Scriptural Truths contains
well over 100 Word studies that cover a vast range of topics and over the years
many readers have told us that they have been richly blessed reading them. We
pray that you will also be blessed by this study!
In this study, “Reactions to
Ya’akov - Jacob,” which I believe it to be a most important
study, For YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, laid this Word upon
my heart some years ago, I knew that it contained a powerful message for the
faithful in Yahushua the Messiah as well as for all in the churches around the
world. To date I have discovered that many have been blessed through this message
as Elohim, blessed be He, had the author share it throughout the world and it
has been well received wherever I have travelled!
Thus in this study, we will find that our
beloved Heavenly Father, who is righteous, chooses good
over evil. However, within this fascinating message regarding Ya’akov
- Jacob, whom Elohim gave the new
title of Israel,
there is also a story of a person who is the perfect picture of the faithful in
Messiah Yahushua. Let us now search out the precious Word of Elohim and prayerfully
seek out the fullness thereof. Praise His glorious Name!
“Now Yitzchak -
Isaac pleaded with YHVH for his wife,
because she was barren; and YHVH granted his plea, and Rebekah
his wife conceived. But the children struggled together within her; and she
said, ‘If all is well, why am I like this?’ So she went to inquire
of YHVH. And YHVH said to her: ‘Two nations are in your womb, two peoples
shall be separated from your body; one people shall be stronger than the other,
and the older shall serve the younger.’” Bereshis - Genesis 25: 21
The aim of this study is to encourage the “Little Flock” of the
faithful in Yahushua The Messiah and those who are new to the faith and those in the churches, to
see Ya’akov - Jacob as Elohim sees him. Of course Ya’akov,
in common with mankind, had many faults and failings, yet YaHVaH Elohim,
blessed be His Sanctified Name, looks at the heart and said, “Ya’akov
have I loved.”
The impression many have of Ya’akov
within the church is tragically distorted, in fact so much so, that it
effectively sows the seeds of anti-Semitism. Ya’akov
tends to be portrayed as a cunning liar, a swindler, and a fraud, one who is
always out to help himself at the cost of others. Beloved, if this is how you
see Ya’akov, then sadly you have been fleeced
by liars who are controlled by the adversary, who is of course Satan!
In other words, you have had the wool pulled over your eyes!
However, we are certainly not to idolise Ya’akov
either, but to love and understand Ya’akov and
his seed, being the House of Israel and their place within the overall plan and
place of YaHVaH
Elohim! It is certainly not that we
cannot see Israel’s
faults, for believe me there are many. But when we see the faults of others, it
is time for self-examination and we better start taking that “plank out
of our own eye.” (Mattityahu – Mathew
7:5). Sadly, beloved, there is a great deal of Ya’akov - Jacob bashing
going on in far to many churches and this has its roots in Romanism and that
includes in Lutheranism of the past, which reeks of anti-Semitism!
Elohim gives His revelation on this matter in
the Book of Malachi - being the very last book in the ‘christian’
version of the ‘Old Covenant,’ however, did you know it is not
really the last book in the original Tanach, the Old Covenant in the Hebrew
version? Just ask yourself this question, which Scriptures did our Saviour and
all of the Apostles refer to, obviously the Tanach, for there was nothing else
as the Brit Chadashah, the New Covenant had not as yet been written, and which
was written first, it was Rome
who re-arranged the books known as the cannon.
burden of the word of YHVH to Israel
by Malachi. ‘I
have loved you,’ says YHVH. ‘Yet you say,’ ‘In what way
have You loved us?’ ‘Was not Esav - Esau Ya’akov's – Jacob’s
brother?' Says YHVH. ‘Yet Ya’akov - Jacob I have loved; But Esav - Esau
I have hated, and laid waste his mountains and his heritage for the jackals of
the wilderness.’ Even though Edom
has said, ‘We have been impoverished, but we will return and build the
desolate places,’ Thus says YHVH of hosts:
‘They may build, but I will throw down; they shall be called the
territory of wickedness, and the people against whom YHVH will have indignation
forever.’” Malachi 1:1-4.
Comment is hardly required for YaHVaH
Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified
Name, makes His position regarding Esav - Esau
and Ya’akov - Jacob
abundantly clear. The Book of Romans written almost 500 years after Malachi
confirms this by revealing Elohim’s choice, even before the twins were
born. This is recorded in Romans 9:9-13.
shall serve the younger. As it is written, Ya’akov
have I loved, but Esav - Esau
have I hated. What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with Elohim? Elohim
forbid.” Verses 12 & 13.
Elohim’s righteousness and perfect
foreknowledge gives Him the undisputed right to choose, the very basis of our
stand with Israel
today, is the foreknowledge of Elohim the father.
Ya’akov – His Good Name!
I now wish
to emphasise Ya’akov’s
good name and Elohim’s favour towards him and why Elohim gave him the
title of Israel,
but I will do this a little later. I must warn you that the evil one, Satan
has a vested interest in bringing down both Ya’akov
- Jacob’s good name as well as
that of the title and the People, or the Children of Israel, who are, according
to the Word, YaHVaH
Elohim’s elect. One of the factors pointing to Ya’akov’s great significance is the
frequent and affectionate mention of his name throughout the Word. Over and
above this, the blessed name of Israel
is mentioned more than 2,500 times. It’s no wonder that this man and his
seed, so centrally placed within the plans and purposes of Elohim should be a
prime target for Satanic abuse.
History has proven that Satan stands against Israel
and that also means the “Little
Flock” of the
faithful in Yahushua The Messiah and Satan would love to see Israel
and the believers fall into error and join those who call themselves christians
who coined the term “The Jews.” Remember originally it was
written in the Brit Chadashah, the New Covenant as “Judeans”
as even in the Greek it clearly states, according to the Strongs
concordance number 2453: “Ioudaios”
pronounced as “ee-oo-dah'-yos”
Again it was the translators who turned it into “THE Jews,”
which sound more like an accusation, because it usually begins with “THE”
something! In the original, “the” does not appear, thus why is it
Now let me
ask a question, why would a Hebrew - OK a Jewish or a Judean man, write this
… “they went together to the synagogue
of THE Jews.” Acts 14:1. What, “the
synagogue of the Jews” I ask you this, what other kind of Synagogue
is there, for the word “the Jews” or even Judeans, was obviously
added by the church translators much later by the Hebrew hating pagan
Roman’s and sadly according to the Word of Elohim, blessed be His
Sanctified Name, it is forbidden to add, subtract or change His precious
Word for it will result in death! For “the wages of sin is
death” and changing His Word is the ultimate sin!
When it comes to Ya’akov
and the “title” of Israel
we must not let the flesh rise in judgement. Often, people are found judging
and criticising Elohim’s ancient people, as though they were their
masters, feeling justified as they elevate themselves within their “sand
castles of self righteousness.” May our Heavenly Father continually
remind all of us of our true position as stated in Romans 2:1.
“O man, whoever
you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself.”
We the faithful in Messiah must beware, lest
there be pride, jealousy or hypocrisy in thinking that we have been given
licence to judge Elohim’s people Israel.
In fact the verse quoted above, clearly speaks of this danger.
We read in Bereshis - Genesis 27:35 & 38,
that Esav - Esau was the
first to call Ya’akov’s
good name into question.
Yitzchak - Isaac
is speaking here to Esav – Esau
and he said;
came with craftiness and has taken away your blessing. And Esav
- Esau said is he not rightly named Ya’akov?
For he has supplanted me these two times. He took away
my birthright, and behold now he has taken away my blessing.”
In verse 41 Esav - Esau
revealed his hatred for Ya’akov as he worked
out a plan to kill him. This clearly is the strategy of the Satan and his
followers, to denigrate Ya’akov and man’s attitude toward all of
his seed, the Children of Israel and at all times was working to stop the birth
of our Messiah, beginning with an attempt to denigrate Ya’akov, but he
failed. However, today Satan continues to work in the process of destroying the
Children of Israel for if he succeeds, then our beloved Saviour, the Messiah
cannot return should they have been totally removed from the earth, but of
course, he will always fail for YaHVaH Elohim has an everlasting Covenant with
them! But Satan will still ensure that there is as
much opposition as possible toward Israel
and its people and he is doing a very good job and the nation of Israel
is certainly not helping either for as a State, Israel
is sadly a sinful nation!
Did Ya’akov really receive a new
The inference in many self-righteous
expositions by ‘christian’ theologians regarding Ya’akov
- Jacob, who have clearly stated
“that Jacob finally got his name
so dirty, that God had to give him another name.”
Sadly, that is the kind of teaching I have
heard from certain so-called very well known “Bible teachers” who
you would think would know much better. And these men, whose names are so well
known and they are almost idolised by countless thousands of hyper-charismatic
‘christians’ but also in Baptist circles and a number of other well
I can officially confirm that indeed, Ya’akov
means “supplanter,” however, this
word does not denigrate for it literally means “Good following
after evil.” It is also translated as “tripper up of the
heel.” Thus, when we consider whose heel Ya’akov
tripped up, a totally different light is shed upon its meaning.
The names, Ya’akov
were given after a struggle. One with man, the other with Elohim Himself, as
noted in Bereshis - Genesis 32:28. Strongs
concordance supports this: The name originates from “aqab”
(aw-kab'); being a primitive root; meaning to “seize
by the heel,” figuratively, “to circumvent,” as if
“tripping up the heels,” also “to restrain”
as if “holding by the heel.”
Bereshis - Genesis 26:23-26 describes the struggle of Ya’akov
with Esav - Esau before
and after birth, as he took Esav - Esau’s
heel. Thus he was called Ya’akov.
How remarkable that Ya’akov
would struggle in the womb as well as immediately after birth. Remarkable is
hardly the word for Ya’akov, for it is clear
that he, even as Yochanan the Immerser - John
the Baptist was filled with the Spirit of Elohim from the womb. Ya’akov,
according to Elohim’s judgement is a “Princely Name”
and Esav - Esau “a stubble”
as recorded in Ovadyah - Obadiah Vs 17 & 18.
But did you know, the truth is that YaHVaH Elohim, blessed
be His Sanctified Name, did not really change Ya’akov’s name at all. No, He did not! What is
really forgotten, or simply not understood by the ‘christians’ and
especially those self-righteous theologians who claim to know everything, but
really know so little, is that Ya’akov was really given an HONORARY name
or TITLE to be known by, direct from the Almighty, for Ya’akov is
the man “who prevails with Elohim, and sees him face to
“The man (which
in Hebrew is ‘Ish’) asked him,
‘What is your name?’ ‘Ya’akov,’
he answered. Then the man said, ‘Your name will no longer be Ya’akov,
but Yisroel, because you have struggled with Elohim, and with men, and have
overcome.” Bereshis - Genesis 32:27-28.
The interesting part is that when Ya’akov
was asked “What is your name?” is the meaning contained within the
word name. Strongs Concordance again provides an
of definite and conspicuous position.” Although the word can be used
as simply a name, here it was used more as a title!
be known as Yisroel, “a Prince with Elohim,” a title greater
than any of the great men of the world. What in fact happened here is that, Ya’akov
was as we may say here knighted by the “King of kings” in the
field, and he was given the honorary title of Yisroel - Israel.
We now come to something very different, and
the question we should now ask; was Rebekah a
scheming and a conniving wife and mother? Bereshis - Genesis 25:22-23 has the
actual answer. The Word tells us that she was guided by divine revelation.
It was clear to her who was to be the heir to Yitzchak - Isaac.
Sadly, at that time, fleshly appetite was governing the life of Yitzchak - Isaac
for sadly at that time he was not the wise man that he had been.
“And Yitzchak - Isaac
loved Esav - Esau, because
he did eat of his venison, but Rebekah loved Ya’akov.”
Bereshis - Genesis 25:28.
It was so sad that Yitzchak - Isaac
the son of promise did not seek his Elohim for divine revelation to govern his
affections. Beloved, this speaks to me so graphically of the Nation of Israel,
for it is a chosen Nation indeed, but to this day Israel remains largely blind
concerning Elohim’s revelation regarding Yahushua The Messiah, even
though He is present as a type in every one of the “Feasts of
YaHVaH!” In addition, they have an appetite for savoury venison or anything
else this world has to offer and that certainly had a devastating effect on the
hearing of the Word of Elohim!
In truth if we closely look at Rebekah, she should reminds us of the faithful in Yahushua,
the Bride in The Messiah Yahushua! Remember how Eliezer
was sent by Avraham to find a bride for his only son and Eliezer
found her at the well, where the fruit of gentleness, kindness, and meekness
confirmed to him that she was the chosen bride. He told her about the father
and his only son. She immediately believed and agreed to be Yitzchak - Isaac’s
bride. Praise Elohim for His Word in the Tanach, the Old Covenant, which
clearly gives us a blessed picture of Him, “Elohim's Only Begotten
Son” and the virgin Bride and the faithful in Yahushua The
With great Joy,
Eliezer decorated Rebekah
with beautiful gifts. After leaving her father’s house, Rebekah was presented to Yitzchak - Isaac
as a spotless bride, a virgin, an “Alma”
indeed! Immediately Yitzchak - Isaac
took her into Sarah’s tent where
the blissfully happy couple consummated their long and happy marriage. Yes, Rebekah indeed speaks to us of the faithful, the bride who
is governed by divine revelation. But to ensure that we are not high-minded,
the Apostle Shaul
- Paul wrote,
“Because of unbelief
were broken off, but you stand by faith. Be not high-minded, but fear.”
And again in verse 25;
“For I would
not brethren that you should be ignorant of this mystery, should you be wise in
your own conceits, that blindness in part has happened to Israel, until the
fullness of the Gentiles be come in.”
It was fleshly appetite, combined with pride
that caused Israel’s
blindness in the days of Yahushua the Messiah. How sad that this same blindness
of which Shaul - Paul warned us about,
should now strike a large portion of those, who claim to be believers in their ‘christ’
– the ‘christians.’ For many speak so glibly of Israel’s
blindness, even now, as the Almighty is doing wondrous things for His Covenant
People Israel, although they may certainly not quite fully comprehend the
greatness of the situation of what Elohim has really done.
The world’s conceit and appetite for
Arab oil is having a blinding effect upon their relationship with Israel.
Sadly, some churches “conceit” and appetite for the blessings that
Elohim gave Israel, effected
their relationship with Israel
and thus with the Almighty. Yahushua is challenging all of His true faithful to
get on with His work, because He is coming soon for His faithful! May we all
repent of any pride or “conceits” that might be in our lives, so
that we may see clearly and give Elohim the honour that is due to His Holy
Name. Now, let us search out how Ya’akov
received his blessing.
Esau despises his Birthright & sells it for a pot of red Lentil
grew to manhood, there grew within him a concern to the birthright. It was a
long established custom that the birthright should pass on to the firstborn
son, but Ya’akov comforted himself in his
mother’s words regarding what Elohim had told her. But how could they
make his worldly father understand this in his old age.
It happened one day while Ya’akov
meditated upon these things that Elohim provided him with the golden
opportunity. He was outdoors cooking a pot of lentil stew and the odour must
have been wafting in the wind, which carried it across the plain. Esav - Esau, who was just
returning from a hunt, caught its aroma in his nostrils. Drawn by an
irresistible urge, he headed for the campfire. The Scriptures continues the
“And Esav - Esau said to Ya’akov,
feed me, I pray, with that same red pottage, for I am faint. Therefore
his name was called Edom.
And Ya’akov said, Sell
me this day thy birthright. And Esav - Esau
said, Behold I am at the point to die, and what profit shall this birthright
do to me? And Ya’akov said, Swear to me
this day, and he sware unto him, and he sold his
birthright unto Ya’akov. Then Ya’akov
gave Esav - Esau bread and
pottage of lentils, and he did eat and drink and rose up and went his way. Thus
Esav - Esau despised his
birthright.” Bereshis - Genesis 25:30-34.
Please note that contrary to the accusations
by so many, Ya’akov did not steal the
birthright, but legally purchased it from his brother who “despised”
it. Therefore YaHVaH
Elohim, Blessed be His Sanctified
Name, also despised Esav - Esau.
Notice that Elohim also changed Esav - Esau’s
name, from Esav meaning hairy, to Edom
meaning red, because he had sold the precious things of Elohim for a
bowl of red stew.
As mentioned earlier, Elohim, blessed be He,
always speaks about Ya’akov affectionately.
is always referred to with disdain. After the purchase of the birthright from Esav - Esau, Ya’akov
may have felt that things had taken a turn for the better. Surely, his father
would now understand that Esav - Esau
was not worthy, having dealt so carelessly with his birthright. Ya’akov’s case was further
strengthened when Esav - Esau
married the two pagan Hittite girls, “which were a grief of mind unto
Yitzchak - Isaac and Rebekah.”
If Rebekah thought
that a path had now been cleared for Ya’akov
to obtain the promised blessing, she must have had quite a shock when she heard
Yitzchak - Isaac promising the
blessing to Esav - Esau,
take, I pray thee thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field,
and take me some venison. And make me savoury meat, such as I love, and bring
it to me, that I may eat, that my soul may bless thee before I die.”
Bereshis - Genesis 27:3-4.
began to act. Something had gone very wrong, for had not Elohim Himself told
her that it was to be Ya’akov? There was
little time, and Rebekah did not mince words, when
she said to Ya’akov,
“Now therefore, my
son, obey my voice according that
shall I command you. Go now to the flock and fetch me from them two good kids
of the goats, and I will make them savoury meat for your father, such as he
loves. And you shall bring it to your father, that he may eat, and that he will
bless you before he dies.” Bereshis - Genesis 27:8-10.
Ya’akov was a
man of about forty years of age and was not bound to obey his mother’s
commands. But I am sure what Rebekah said, and the
way she had said it, left Ya’akov in no doubt
as to the urgency of the matter. Ya’akov was
not too happy about the prospects, for if his mother’s plan were to
backfire, he would be in line for a curse instead of the desired blessing.
However, there was no time for reflections. Any moment now Esav - Esau
may return and Ya’akov
knew this would end his opportunity. The plan that Rebekah
had concocted was now frantically carried out. Before Ya’akov
had time to gather his thoughts, he found himself before his father and telling
an untruth. This is a sad state for a son of promise to be in. Trembling with
fear, covered with the perspiration of anxiety on his brow, is not the pose
that suits a man of Elohim! After much fuss, Ya’akov
finally found himself at the point of obtaining the blessing from Yitzchak - Isaac,
Elohim give thee of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth, and plenty
of corn and wine. Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee. Be lord
over thy brethren, and let thy mother’s son’s bow down to thee. Curseth be every one that curseth
thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee.” Bereshis - Genesis 27:28 & 29.
It must have seemed strange to Ya’akov
that there was no mention of the Abrahamic Covenant,
or the inheritance of the land.
As the sun finally set upon
this day, vastly differing thoughts lingered in the minds of the four in the
household. Rebekah and
Ya’akov were no doubt much relieved that all
had gone well. Esav - Esau
fumed with rage and plotted to kill Ya’akov.
And Yitzchak - Isaac finally reflected
on the things of Elohim once again. I believe that Yitzchak - Isaac
first realised the truth concerning Ya’akov
and Elohim’s election of him during that night. It was not until Yitzchak
- Isaac had repented and realised his
ignorance in regard YaHVaH’s choice, that Ya’akov
received the much coveted recognition from his father.
Now in the broad daylight of the new day,
without all yesterday's fuss and bother, Ya’akov
heard a sound, which must have seemed like music in his ears. His father was
calling him. In came Ya’akov, smooth skinned
and wearing his shepherd’s clothes. YaHVaH
Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified
Name, wonderfully reserved the most precious of His blessings for this
occasion. Without fear of falsehood, Ya’akov
received the blessings, which he had all his life coveted. The blessings were
now eternally bestowed upon the man whom Elohim loved!
“And Yitzchak -
Isaac called Ya’akov
and blessed him, and charged him and said unto him, Thou shalt
not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.
Arise and go to Pa-dan-a’ram, to the house of
thy mother’s father, and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of
Laban thy mother’s brother. And Elohim Almighty
bless thee and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people. And give thee the blessing
of Abraham to thee, and thy seed with
thee, that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou
art a stranger, which Elohim gave unto Abraham.”
Bereshis - Genesis 28:1-4.
Conversely, things may not look too good for Israel
right now, although it has signed various peace accords. It may seem to the
world that Jordan,
which is the remnant of the evil nation of Edom,
will prevail and have the blessing of a blind world and together supporting the
Palestinian attempt to claim Jerusalem as being
their capital city, rather than the capital of Israel.
However, just as Ya’akov
prevailed in accordance with Divine revelation, so shall the remnant of Israel
prevail. The Word has made it clear, “And so shall all Israel
be saved, as it is written … the Deliverer shall come out of Zion.”
It is then that a blind world will repent and acknowledge the Word of Elohim!
Whose Side are you on Ya’akov’s
or Esav - Esau’s?
The true faithful in Yahushua The Messiah will
of course choose the side of Ya’akov, whilst many of those in various
‘churches’ may well have their own agenda, especially the church of
the pagan Rome and her many harlot daughters! However, I am aware that there
are those amongst them who good and faithful folk and they constantly pray for Israel,
as well for the Peace of Jerusalem! As the blessed Scriptures states, those who
bless the Children of Israel are blessed;
“And his father
Yitzchak - Isaac said unto him (Ya’akov).
‘Come near now and kiss me, my son … Let peoples serve you, and
nations bow down to you … Cursed be everyone who curses you, And blessed
be those who bless you!’” Bereshis - Genesis
27:26 & 29.
But beloved, for the faithful, the closer you
get to Yahushua our blessed and loving Messiah, the closer you get to the
people of Israel, and feel a strong urge to “have mercy upon Zion”
“Pray for the
peace of Jerusalem: May they
prosper who love you. Peace be within your walls, prosperity within your
palaces.” Tehillim - Psalms 122:6-7.…
Hebrew word used for “Pray” is “Sha’al” which actually means to
“enquire,” to “request” or even to
“demand.” Thus this verse should actually read as follows;
regarding the peace of Jerusalem
… Peace be within your walls, prosperity within your palaces.”
This request is obviously in prayer unto YaHVaH Elohim, in the
blessed Name of Yahushua The Messiah, but the meaning
of enquiring is that we must be more involved and be constantly up to date with
what is going on!
Obviously, the only true peace for the
Children of Israel is of course Yahushua The Messiah,
for it is ONLY, when they accept Him into their lives, there can be true peace
in the heart of men! Beloved, we know that He is our and Israel’s
Redeemer and He will come again soon! For according to the Scriptures, Israel
will be saved!
shall all Israel
be saved: as it is written. There shall come out of Zion
the Deliverer, and shall turn ungodliness from Ya’akov.
For this is My Covenant unto them, when I shall take away
their sins. As concerning the Gospel, they are enemies for your
sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the Fathers’
sake.” Romans 11:26-28.
As Shaul - Paul so clearly stated, it was
through YaHVaH Elohim’s
foreknowledge that Israel
as a nation would reject Yahushua The Messiah, whilst
there were individual faithful ones who did believe! And it was because of Israel’s
rejection that … “Salvation is come to the Gentiles.”
Therefore we should praise Him, for “Elohim has not cast away His people
whom He foreknew.”
However, those who support Esav – Esau (Edom)
are the enemies of Israel
and they will suffer the curse of Elohim, for the Word says, all those who
curse Ya’akov who was given the title of Israel
are cursed, “Cursed be everyone that curses you.” For all
who have done evil unto Israel,
Elohim has this warning, as spoken by the prophet Obadiah;
“As you have
done unto Israel,
so shall I do unto you.” Verse 15.
Beloved, this is your challenge;
have these (Israel)
also now not believed, that through your MERCY (your love and
prayers) they also may obtain mercy (faith, repentance and Salvation through
the shed blood of the Lamb of Elohim).” Romans 11:31.
“As much you
have done it unto the least of these, My brethren (Israel),
you have done it unto Me.” Mattityahu - Matthew
Beloved as I indicated earlier, we are to
enquire, investigate about the peace in Jerusalem
and in all of the State of Israel for that matter, for we are to be involved!
We should be “watchmen” and be prayerful, as the Word states,
“until Peace comes to Jerusalem.”
upon the walls of Jerusalem. Do not hold your peace (Intercessory
prayer) day or night, you that call upon My Name (YAH). Keep
not silence UNTIL Peace comes to Jerusalem.” Yeshayahu - Isaiah 62:6.
is vital that many Hebrews as well as Gentiles come to know Yahushua The Messiah prior to His coming, and by this I include also
those of the Roman
and parts of the greater ‘church’ for they do not know the true
Saviour, but a counterfeit for Salvation can ONLY come through the Name of
Yahushua THE Messiah! Shime’on – Peter
said to the elders, the scribes including Annas
the high priest and Caiaphas;
“That by the
Name of Yahushua The Messiah of Nazareth,
whom you placed on the stake, and Elohim raised from the dead, by Him
this man stands here before you whole. This is the 'stone’ which was
rejected by you builders, which has become the ‘chief cornerstone.’
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other Name under heaven
given to men by which we must be saved." Acts
And within that verse, knowing that it was
originally written in Hebrew and that Messiah’s Name was only ever known
as Yahushua, and the counterfeit one that later replaced it was introduced by
the very man, who Shime’on – Peter had thrown out because he had
dared to attempt to buy an apostleship, a man who was an Babylonian priest, a
Samaritan and a well known sorcerer who went to Rome and founded the Simonian church, that became the Roman catholic church
later. This man invented the words “christian” and “christ”
that came out of the name of a pagan god “Chrestos” and
“IESOUS” translates as ... a hail to “Zeus.”
Ya’akov – Israel:
The time will come that the world will come to
love the name of Ya’akov and Israel and will seek after him
that is a Yahudi, Judean, Jew or
all those who are from Israel!
take hold of the skirt (their tzitzit the
fringes) of him that is a Yahudi, saying,
we will go with you, for we have heard that Elohim is with you.” Zecharyah – Zechariah 8:23.
Beloved, I pray that this study has challenged
and inspired you. If so, all I can ask is that you pray for the guidance of the
Sanctified (Holy) Spirit of Elohim, and then act in the will of our Creator,
and His son, Yahushua The Messiah, “Go ye
into all the world, and preach the Good News to every creature.”

of you as have been baptised into the Messiah have put on the Messiah. There is

It was one night in 1977 Elohim opened this
orthodox 30 something year old Hebrew community leader’s eyes, when I was
all alone in my study at home during my evening “Ma’ariv”
(evening) prayers and later I was reading Daniel chapter nine. Praise be to my
Elohim, that night I came to know the truth about my blessed Messiah, who I had
been rejecting for so long, and I believed and repented of my sins. I knew that
I was redeemed, praise YaHVaH’s glorious Name. There is a mighty
story to be told regarding this blessed evening, for it was certainly very
powerful, and yes it also had a very sad part to it, as that night, my beloved
one discovering I had accepted Yahushua as my Messiah, tore her dress, being a
sign of death, for I had died and from that moment we were no longer husband
and wife! Thus with great joy, there was sadness, but Our Father takes care of
all things! HalleluYah.
I can honestly say that on that special night
Elohim spoke to me, not in some cinematic all-powerful voice, NO, but it was a
still voice that was deep inside of me! How did I know it was not just me? That
was very simple, for the voice was saying the very things that I would normally
have despised! I had an intense dislike for anything that had to do with christianity! But during the time Elohim spoke, He taught me
so much, and I thank Him for one special instruction, which is responsible for
all of the studies online: I was given an instruction not to read any books of
men for seven years in order that I would not be influenced by any false
doctrines! Therefore, I would only read His blessed Word from the Hebrew as
well from the Greek, but I would need help with the Greek I said and the Father
soon sent me a wonderful Greek believer to be my permanent assistant! Thus,
beloved I was never tainted with any of the false doctrines abound in so many
churches, for I simply never knew any of them.
Everything I came to know about Yahushua is
based from the teachings found in the Tanach, the Old Covenant, and that was
followed up by the Brit Chadashah, the New Covenant. All that was without any
outside influence, and our teaching continues on that basis to this day! Dear
brother Chazantonakis was also not part of the church and he always had great
interest in Hebraic things, but Messiah Yahushua was his main source in life!
We have been in fulltime ministry officially on the road since 1984, although I
knew him earlier!
comfort ye My people, saith
your Elohim. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem.” Yeshayahu –
Isaiah 40:1 & 2.
To comfort Israel,
is to pray for Hebrew (Jewish) folk to come to know their Messiah and to repent
of their sins, then can there be true comfort. YaHVaH
Elohim will only comfort those that
have returned to Him! “Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem”
Share Messiah Yahushua with them!
The next study asks the question, “Who Is
Israel and has Elohim Divorced Her?” May
it reveal to you Elohim’s plan and purpose for the Nation of Israel
today and in the urgent times ahead?
“Teach me Your way, O YHVH. I will
walk in Your truth.
UNITE MY HEART TO FEAR YOUR NAME!”
– 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 (John)
