*************************************************

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!

 

 

“Shema Yisroel – Hear O Israel

This is Moshe’s - Moses’ Great Declaration of Faith!

Beloved, I believe that this is one of the most important studies online, for it reveals the true nature of the Almighty, YaHVaH Elohim, (the LORD God) of Avraham, Yitzchak and Ya’akov (Abraham Isaac and Jacob) and that of Yahushua THE Messiah, our beloved Master and Saviour!

As I commence this vital study, I have to say that I do not hold to the ancient pagan belief of a “trinity” for beloved, sadly that was introduced long after the time of our blessed Saviour and the Apostles, for it is certainly not found anywhere in the Scriptures! However, I believe that Yahushua is indeed Elohim, for the Elohim is YaHVaH’s Attribute or a Title and it is in the plural tense, and also note the following verse where YaHVaH Elohim very clearly made His duality very clear!

“Elohim said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness’” Bereshis - Genesis 1:26.

In addition Yochanan supports the above as do countless other Scriptures!

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.

What then of the Ruach HaKodesh, the Sanctified (holy) Spirit? “Ruach” in Hebrew also translates as “breath” thus it is the breath or the power of Elohim, through which He does miracles or whatever He desires! Thus this is not a separate part of Elohim, but His power! And as He lives in the temple of faithful, means that His spirit is within us! Thus Elohim the Father and Elohim who later was born to be our beloved Saviour are the ONE – ECHAD Elohim!

Having been an orthodox Hebrew (Israelite) I have said, and still say the “Shema” - “Hear Israel” Deut 6:4 every day, fully knowing the meaning and its implication, and I do pray that many more will come to fully understand the beauty and the fullness of this verse having read this work!

Take my word, for an ultra orthodox Hebrew this is the Scripture which is the one that really get’s in the way when a Jewish person first hears from a “christian” about He who is part of a “trinity” for as I have already said, this is a false doctrine.

But now, let us come to understand what “Shema Yisroel” really means with a full and a deep Scriptural understanding!

Moshe’s great declaration to the Children of Israel regarding the One True YaHVaH Elohim is both simple and so profound! For Moshe wrote this declaration in the Sefer Ha Davarim” meaning theBook of Deuteronomy.” In Chapter 6, verse 4 it reads as follows:

שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל יְהוָה אֱלהֵינוּ יְהוָה אֶחָד

Shema Yisroel, YHVH Eloheynu, YHVH ECHAD

Hear O Israel, YHVH our Elohim, YHVH is ONE

The emphasis of the declaration is based on the Divine revelation that the Eternal Elohim (God) is dha - “Echad - ONE.” Thus it is vital that we should fully comprehend and understand the fullness of the meaning of this word אֶחָד – “Echad.” Thus in this study, we will examine it very prayerfully, and most carefully, and therefore we will see in what sense Moshe uses it in all the other parts of the blessed Word!

It is thus best for us to start a; “In the beginning” the Book of Genesis, which will give us a number of examples of this word אֶחָד – “Echad.”

The word אֶחָד - “Echad” is used by Moshe twenty three times in Bereshis - Genesis and this is a matter of great importance! I will give some of the most important examples the order as they appear in the blessed Scriptures and I appeal to all who read this study to examine each verse in its proper context and discover the full meaning of the fullness of the word “Echad.” I will list the remaining ones for you to look up for yourself!

---------------------

Please Note: The Hebrew has been sourced directly from the “Holy Scriptures.

Published by the Jewish Publication Society of America, and I have done so for authenticity reasons!

 

First occurrence: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter 1:5.

וַיְהִי-עֶרֶב וַיְהִי-בקֶר יוֹם אֶחָד

“And there was evening and there was morning, One (Echad) day.”

As we carefully look at this verse we will understand that obviously evening is not morning and morning is not evening, they are very different and at two distinct different time slots of the day. They are clearly distinguished the one from other, yet evening and morning associated together make ~Ay “Yom” - “day” and yet that day is אֶחָד – “Echad.” The use of the word Echad in this passage evidently indicates the essential “oneness” or unity of the two clearly distinguished features being evening and morning!

---------------------

Second occurrence: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter 1:9.

וַיּאמֶר אֱלהִם, יִקָּווּ הַמַּיִם מִתַּחַת הַשָּׁמַיִם אֶל-מָקוֹם אֶחָד

“And God said, ‘Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto One (Echad) place’”

We need to consider the following important points: The Name of Elohim as in other places including Bereshis - Genesis Chapter1:1 is in the plural. I know that there could be an argument on this point that the plurality there is related to the “plural of majesty,” but this humanly conceived theory collapses under the test of the holy Scriptures themselves.

The “waters” are in the dual, as are the “heavens.” Here we find the waters plural because in the verse we read: “And the gathering together of the waters called He seas.”

---------------------

Third occurrence: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter 2:24.

עַל-כֵּן, יַעֲזָב-אִישׁ אֶת-אָבִיו וְאֶת-אִמּוֹ וְדָבַק בְּאִשְׁתּוֹ וְהָיוּ לְבָשָׂר אֶחָד

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife, and they shall be One (Echad) flesh.”

It is quite obvious to us all that a man is not a woman and a woman is not a man, yet in the reckoning of the Almighty God, when marriage occurs between a man and a woman, the two become truly אֶחָד - “Echad.”

Here again the word אֶחָד - “Echad” does not sanction the idea of unity in absolute singularity but rather the idea of absolute unity in plurality!

---------------------

Forth occurrence: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter 11:6.

 וַיּאמֶר יְהוָה הֵן עַם אֶחָד

“And the LORD said, ‘Behold they are One (Echad) people.’”

This use of the word One - אֶחָד - “Echad” indicates that the many, although clearly distinguished from each other as individuals, were nevertheless a UNITY, yet the word “people” is in the singular!

---------------------

Fifth occurrence: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter 27:45.

לָמָה אֶשְׁכַּל גַּם-שְׁנֵיכֶם, יוֹם אֶחָד

“Why should I be bereaved of you both in One (Echad) day.”

We have already looked at the first occurrence that a day is One - אֶחָד - “Echad” made up of “evening and there was morning, One day.”

In the passage above, if you will read it further, you will find that there is a question in Rebekah’s mind, that there is an awful possibility of two separate bereavements becoming One - אֶחָד - “Echad.”

---------------------

Sixth occurrence: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter 33:13.

וּדְפָקוּם יוֹם אֶחָד וָמֵתוּ כָּל-הַצֹּאן

“And if they overdrive them One (Echad) day, all flocks will die.”

For the explanation of “one day” see the first/fifth occurrence.

---------------------

Seventh occurrence: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter 34:16.

וְהָיִינוּ לְעַם אֶחָד

“ … and we will become One (Echad) people.”

Here we find that the sons of Jacob suggest that two clearly distinguished groups of people will become One - אֶחָד - “Echad” if one uncircumcised group would become circumcised.

The word is again used to imply that many individuals can become a UNITY of individuals. However, the One - אֶחָד - “Echad” does not mean that the many individuals become the single individual, possessing but one head, one body, two eyes, etc.

Nevertheless the word does imply a UNITY, a oneness, of such character as to tantamount to the many heads thinking as if by one head, the many bodies acting as if but one body, the many eyes discerning as if but two eyes.

---------------------

Eighth occurrence: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter 34:22.

לְעַם אֶחָד

“ … to become One (Echad) people.”

Refer to occurrence three and four.

---------------------

Ninth occurrence: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter 40:5.

וַיַּחַלְמוּ חֲלוֹם שְׁנֵיהֶם אִישׁ חֲלֹמוֹ, בְּלַיְלָה אֶחָד

“And they dreamed a dream both of them, each man a dream in One (Echad) night.”

The verse makes it clear that the night was a single night. Therefore it appears that, One - אֶחָד - “Echad” in this verse is also used to represent a unity in singularity, yet the thought is embodied in the expression of the two clearly distinguished dreams into the unity of one night.

---------------------

Tenth occurrence: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter 41:5.

וַיִּישָׁן, וַיַּחֲלֹם שֵׁנִית; וְהִנֵּה שֶׁבַע שִׁבֳּלִים, עֹלוֹת בְּקָנֶה אֶחָד-בְּרִיאוֹת וְטֹבוֹת

“And he slept and dreamed a second time: and, behold, seven ears of corn came up upon One – (Echad) stalk, rank and good.”

Here again we see a multiple, but it is One: the seven, though clearly distinguished, nevertheless One (Echad), a perfect UNITY.

---------------------

Eleventh occurrence: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter 41:11.

וַנַּחַלְמָה חֲלוֹם בְּלַיְלָה אֶחָד, אֲנִי וָהוּא

“And we dreamed a dream in One (Echad) night, I and he.”

See the above notes.

---------------------

Twelfth occurrence: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter 41:22.

וְהִנֵּה שֶׁבַע שִׁבֳּלִים, עלת בְּקָנֶה אֶחָד

“… and behold, seven ears came up on One (Echad) stalk.”

See the above notes.

---------------------

Thirteenth occurrence: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter 41:25.

וַאמֶר יוֹסֵף אֶל-פַּרְעה חֲלוֹם פַּרְעֹה אֶחָד

“And Joseph said unto Pharaoh: ‘The dream of Pharaoh is One (Echad).’

 

And

 ---------------------

Fourteenth occurrence: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter 41:26.

שֶׁבַע פָּרת הַטּבת שֶׁבַע שָׁנִים הֵנָּה וְשֶׁבַע הַשִּׁבֳּלִים הַטּבת שֶׁבַע שָׁנִים הֵנָּה:חֲלוֹם אֶחָד הוּא

“The seven good kine (cows) are seven years; and the seven good ears are seven years: the dream is One (Echad)”

The two examples before us supply a very illuminating example of the use of the word One – אֶחָד, because the above revelation to Joseph to Pharaoh is in term exactly in parallel to Moses’ revelation to Israel in Davarim, Deuteronomy 6:4. This should be quite conclusive.

Here Pharaoh’s two separate and distinct terms, and further separated by a distinct period of wakefulness (Bereshis, Genesis 41:4) are nevertheless declared to be אֶחָד - “Echad”, One.

With equal accuracy Joseph could have declared unto Pharaoh: “HEAR O PHARAOH, THE DREAM, OUR DREAMS, THE DREAM IS ONE.”

---------------------

Fifteenth occurrence: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter 42:11.

כֻּלָּנוּ בְּנֵי אִישׁ-אֶחָד

“We are all One (Echad) man's sons; we are upright men, thy servants are no spies.”

Here again whilst the man is a unit (although man is a tri-unity, three in one, spirit, soul and body) yet the thought conveyed is that many are really a UNITY!

---------------------

Sixteenth occurrence: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter 42:13.

אֲנַחְנוּ בְּנֵי אִישׁ-אֶחָד

“The sons of One (Echad) man.”

Although there are twelve, yet UNITY in origins is clearly seen here and it is so expressed!

---------------------

Seventeenth occurrence: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter 42:16.

שִׁלְחוּ מִכֶּם אֶחָד וְיִקַּח אֶת-אֲחִיכֶם

“Send One (Echad) of you, and let him fetch your brother.”

Literal: “Send ye (plural) from you (plural) אֶחָד - “Echad” - One and he shall take your (plural) brother.

Here again we see the word אֶחָד – “Echad” used to denote a unit from among the unity

---------------------

Eighteenth occurrence: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter 42:19.

אִם-כֵּנִים אַתֶּם-אֲחִיכֶם אֶחָד

“…if ye be upright men, let one of your brethren.”

Again the word is used to denote a unit from among the unity.

---------------------

This covers eighteen uses of the word Echad in Bereshis - Genesis

Other verses are to be found at: Bereshis - Genesis Chapter’s 21:15, 22:2, 26: 10, 32:13 & 48:22.

However, we will now continue with our observations regarding this important word אֶחָד - “Echad” - One!

Echad or Yachid?

Thus what do we make of all this? First we will come to realise that after an examination of the book of Bereshis - Genesis it will reveal that the above eighteen quotations contain the only uses of the word אֶחָד – “Echad” in that book! I have purposely placed the quotations in the order as they appear in the Word and each time its meaning became more and more clear. An impartial examination will reveal that the word אֶחָד is to denote UNITY, the kind of unity denoted by the word is far more frequently a unity of plurality than a unity of singularity.

We need to use the only Scriptural conception of the word אֶחָד as a torch of illumination wherewith to examine Israel’s “Shema Yisroel” and we are to work on understanding the word, and looking at it very closely, you will discover that in its simplicity its meaning is solely not limited to an absolute singularity to think otherwise would be a gross misrepresentation. It become doubly culpable when the noun which אֶחָד is associated is plural as is the case of Deuteronomy 6:4, Moshe’s great declaration for the word - אֱלהֵינוּ - Elohenu. It could have read, “our (plural) God” (in the singular), but it did not, It reads, “our (plural) אֱלהֵינו - Elohenu - God’s” (plural). To those unacquainted with the Hebrew, it should be noted that the terminal character Y in Wnyhel{a – Elohenu makes the NOUN plural. The word אֱלהֵינו is really a double plural: the normal ending Y.. renders the NOUN ITSELF in the plural, whilst the pronominal suffix Wn denotes the positive plural “our.”

For example:

WnsWS our horse

WnsyWS our horses

Thus we should ask: What then, of the REAL meaning of Moshe’s meaning of the great declaration regarding the Eternal One?

The plurality of the Noun (quite distinctly from the plurality of the pronominal suffix) and the Scriptural light upon the meaning of the word אֶחָד – “Echad” combine to exclude a trinity. The great declaration is that there is only One Elohim, but we know from Yochanan – John 1:1-4 that He who is “the Word is Elohim” was from the beginning, and that all things were created through Him! Thus Yahushua and YaHVaH Elohim are one and the same! This could not be expressed by the word יחִיד Yachid. The word יחִיד - Yachid denotes absolute singularity and appears in Yirmyahu - Jeremiah 6:26, Amnos - Amos 8:10 and Tehillim - Psalms 25:16 for the first two clearly speaks of an “Only Son” and Tehillim - Psalms speaks of being “all alone”

It was for the express reason to avoid the claims by our beloved Saviour, Messiah Yahushua, the declaration of faith as spoken by Moshe - Moses, which was later sadly distorted by the rabbis for it received a completely false meaning and we should look into the “Thirteen Principles of the Jewish Faith” by Maimonides, who is also known as “Rambam.”

יחִיד שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל יְהוָה אֱלהֵינוּ יְהוָה

“Hear O Israel, The LORD our God, the LORD is a Unity (Yachid)”

Yet Moshe in the Deuteronomy 6:4 did not say that, he clearly …

שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל יְהוָה אֱלהֵינוּ יְהוָה אֶחָד

“Hear O Israel, YHVH our God, YHVH is One (Echad)”

You may ask on what basis do I make this claim? Well as I already indicated, the famous Jewish Sage Rabbi Moses Maimon (Maimonides – 1135-1204) formulated the “Thirteen Principles of the Jewish Faith.” He stated in the second principle;

“I believe with perfect faith that the Creator, blessed be His Name, is a UNITY (dyxiy - Yachid), and that there is no UNITY (יחִיד - Yachid) in any manner like unto His, and that He alone is God, who was, is and will be.”

The aforementioned proclamation of faith was written by Maimonides, which is recited by orthodox Jews several times per day and it now claims that Elohim is a Unity – Yachid, whereas the blessed Scripture clearly states that He is “אֶחָד - Echad” - One, which has as we have already studied a very different meaning in the Book of Genesis on 18 separate occasions!

Thus it was Rambam who stated that “The Creator is an absolute Unity” or Yachid. YHVH, the Almighty Himself through Moshe said that He is a compound Unity using the term אֶחָד - “Echad.” Which Moshe will you believe? The one sent by Elohim or the one spouting the teachings of man, Moses Ben Maimon/Rambam? Thus there is a choice, we either follow the word of man or the sacred Word of Elohim as given to us in His Word, I feel that the choice is very clear!

Beloved, I am writing this study as a letter of love. The love of YHVH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, can only be perceived and the person of Yahushua can only be fully UNDERSTOOD and KNOWN through the Spirit of Truth.

“Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of Elohim calls Yahushua accursed, and that no man can say that Yahushua, is the Master, but by the Ruach HaKodesh, the Sanctified (Holy) Spirit, (The Spirit of Truth)1 Corinthians 12:3.

That is what I am trying with all diligence to communicate about the great peril, to which some may have come to think about the truth of the statement of the “Shema Yisroel” and the word “אֶחָד - Echad - ONE.” We must read the Word and come to know who Yisroel’s Messiah Yahushua really is. And as I stated at the beginning of this study, that the first three verses of Yochanan - John Chapter 1 so clearly described it …

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim. The same was in the beginning with Elohim. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.”

What I believe is summarised in 4 simple foundational principles upon which my understanding of the doctrine of Messiah stands:

1) YaHVaH is the One true Elohim. Elohim is Elohim. This simple statement is really quite profound. As I have clearly detailed in this study that Elohim is “Echad – ONEmeaning more that One can be One. Elohim according to the Scriptures is certainly not “Yachid - A UNITY” as stated in the Principles of the Jewish Faith, as we have already read earlier!

2) YaHVaH cannot lie. For our Elohim cannot lie. Satan is the ultimate liar.

3) YaHVaH does not change. And indeed Yahushua is the same yesterday, today, and forever!

4) If YaHVaH said it will happen, be assured that it will happen just as He said, and that is because of WHO said it. It makes no difference if I agree or not. It makes no difference if I like it or not. It makes no difference if your theology agrees or not, it does not matter for no matter what His Truth will stand forever, regardless what you think, and you better start praying and ask for discernment for you may well need it if you are not convinced by His Sacred Word!!

The Father, He who is the Word, Yahushua and Ruach HaKodesh - the Sanctified Spirit are ALL just as the Scriptures are trulyאֶחָד - Echad - ONE not three, not a duality, no, Elohim is One, and as He told us in His Glorious Word the following;

“‘You are My witnesses,’ says YHVH, ‘And My servant whom I have chosen, That you may know and believe Me, And understand that I am He. Before Me there was no elohim formed, nor shall there be after Me. I, even I, am YHVH, and besides Me there is no saviour.’” Yeshayahu - Isaiah 43:10-11.

And therein lies the great truth, for Elohim and the Word are One, and he became flesh, man the Messiah, “Immanuel” or “Elohim with us.” Let our Saviour speak for Himself!

Yochanan - John 14:9-11.

“He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father?’ Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.’” Yochanan - John 14:9-11.

In Conclusion:

Now we understand what “Echad” really means, I would like to conclude with the flowing: I came to believe in Messiah Yahushua, when I was still an orthodox Jew and that happened when I was alone in my study at home one evening during my Ma’ariv - evening prayers. Please know and understand the following that at that time I was far from wanting to hear about anyone who was a Saviour who walked the earth some 2,000 years ago, for sadly the history of christians slaughtering my people during that tome has been horrendous, thus I was not searching!

However, as a faithful Hebrew, I loved the Creator, my Elohim and I upheld His Torah, the Law, not just because He commanded me to keep them, but because I loved to uphold them in love for Him! That nights as I was in prayr and studying His blessed Word it was the Almighty of Israel who gave me a revelation about the Messiah and not someone trying to convert me! That night whilst I happened to be reading the Book of Daniel I was reading chapter 9 and as the words I knew so well came about, but suddenly, it seemed like a voice was telling me what they meant.

“Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince, there shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; The street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times. And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary.” Daniel 9:25-26.

As an Orthodox Jew, it was in 1977 that I through an amazing event during my Ma’ariv prayers at home, without any outside influences and with me having written a semi anti-christian book - “Faith of the Chosen” just months earlier, I came to believe and repented, after which I was filled with the Spirit of the Ruach HaKodesh. Then, seven years later, I was called out to become a teacher of the Word of Elohim and travelled the world together with a wonderful Greek believer, who Elohim sent to minister with me a year earlier. Today as I have grown so much, I fully believe in the Messiah and I worship the Father, Messiah and the Ruach HaKodesh as being completely “Echad” - “One” with all my heart and all my soul and all my might.

I pray if any of my Hebrew brethren have read this article that they may come to “Know, Believe and Understand that I Am He” for HaMashiach has indeed come as our promised Messiah and His Name is Yahushua, and I pray in faith that Elohim will open up the way for Ruach HaKodesh (the Sanctified Spirit), to dwell within you. Yeshayahu - Isaiah said,

“Surely He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered Him stricken by Elohim, smitten by Him, and afflicted. But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities (Israel’s & all sinners); the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and YHVH has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

He was oppressed and afflicted, yet He did not open his mouth; He was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so He did not open His mouth. By oppression and judgment He was taken away … For He was cut (died on the stake) off from the land of the living; for the transgression of My people (Israel) He was stricken. He was assigned a grave with the wicked and with the rich in His death (tomb of Joseph of Arimathea) though He had done no violence, nor was any deceit in His mouth.” Yeshayahu - Isaiah 53:4-9.

Online read my work “The Sixth Principle” (see the Site Index below). This work is based on Maimonides’ “Thirteen Principles of the Jewish faith” but it covers the Sixth one! However, there is also a very powerful article with it, both in Hebrew and English and it has what ancient Rabbis of blessed memories have to say about Yeshayahu - Isaiah chapter 53 who the “Suffering Servant” really is! What some of the most famous Rabbis have to say makes for powerful and revealing reading! They include: Rabbi Moses Maimon (Maimonides also known as Rambam) – 1135-1204, Rabbi Jonathan ben Uzziel, a follower of the famed Rabbi Hillel, who lived at the end of the Second Temple era, Rashi (Rabbi Shlomo Itzchaki) - 1040-1105, Rabbi Moshe Kohen Iben Crispin of Cordova, and many more!

Just for interest, the almighty used Daniel Chapter 9, which so clearly spoke of the rebuilding of the Second Temple unto the Messiah and that He would be “cut off (put to death), but not for Himself.” Verses 25-26.

On that night the Elohim of Avraham, Yitzchak - Isaac and Ya’akov - Jacob touched my heart of stone, which after so many years hating this christian Jesus and the murderous christians who have killed our people over centuries, yet it gave way to a heart of passionate devotion to Elohim, a heart of flesh and now I have come to know Him far more closely than I have ever been able to do in the Synagogue. He desires that you also will come to know Him this way. Today I know that true believers in Messiah never had a part in persecuting Israel! In fact my Book “Dutch Tzedakah” proves quite the opposite!

“And I will give you a New Heart and put a New Spirit into you. I will remove the heart of stone from your body and give you a heart of flesh; and I will put My Spirit into you.” Yechehel - Ezekiel 36:26-27.

Below are some very good verses for you to learn and possibly to memorise from the Brit Chadashah, the New Covenant and remember they were all written by Jews who believed in Yahushua HaMashiach – the Messiah.

“Come unto Me (said Yahushua), all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls.” Mattityahu - Matthew 11:28-30.

“If any one is thirsty, let them come to Me! Let the person come and drink who believes in Me!” Yochanan -John 7:37.

“I am the Light of the world; anyone who follows Me will not be walking in darkness; he will have the Light of Life.” Yochanan - John 8:12.

“I tell you the truth; before Avraham ever was, I AM.” Yochanan - John 8:58.

“I am the resurrection. If anyone believes in Me, even though he dies he will live, and whoever lives and believes in Me will never die.” Yochanan - John 11:25-26.

Yahushua holds the Key to Life in His Hand. He wants to reveal Himself to you. Will you let Him? Why not contact me and we will show how you also can come to know the risen Messiah of Israel, Yahushua, the Son of David, the Son of Avraham, for He is Yisroel - Israel’s promised Messiah!
