The Manifestations Of The Holy Spirit [YAHUWAH]


This is an additional note added after the original post: Throughout this presentation I have used the English term “The Holy Spirit” to represent what the power of Yahuwah is called, but in the Abary language, it is called as follows:

The = Ha (definite article)

Holy = H6918 Qaduwsh (quwph-dalet-waw-shin) or H6944 Qadash (quwph-dalet-shin) (adjective)

Spirit = H7307 Ruwach (resh-waw-chet) (noun)

In the Abary language, the adjective comes after the noun as follows:

Spirit Holy = Ruwach Qaduwsh or Ruwach Qadash

In the Abary language, the adjective takes the definite article when it modifies a definite noun as follows:

HaQaduwsh or HaQadash

The power of Yahuwah is called: Ruwach HaQaduwsh or Ruwach HaQadash.

The Promise Of The Holy Spirit

Yohn (John) 14:26 “But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”

G3739 ho {ho} including the feminine η {hay} and the neuter to {to} in all their inflections, the definite article;; article AV – which 413, who 79, the things 11, the son 8, misc 32; 543 1) this, that, these, etc. Only significant renderings other than VtheV counted

G1565 ekeinos {ek-i’-nos} from 1563;; pron AV – that 99, those 40, he 40, the same 20, they 14, misc 38; 251 1) he, she, it, etc.

The pronoun “whom” (Strong’s G3739 which points to a person) in this verse could just as well have been translated as the word “which” (which points to a thing) and the pronoun “he” (Strong’s G1565 which points to a person) could have been translated as the word “that” or “it” (which points to a thing). The pronouns chosen by the translators have led people erroneously to believe that the Alahayam consist of three persons.

In The Beginning There Were Two Alahayam
Genesis 1:1, Yohn (John) 1:1

Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning Alahayam created the heaven and the earth.”

Yohn (John) 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Alahayam, and the Word was Alahayam.” 2 The same was in the beginning with Alahayam. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.”

The word “alahayam” in Genesis 1:1 (Strong’s H430) is in a plural form and the Word is identified as the one who was with Alahayam in the beginning.

The Holy Spirit Is The Seal Of Yahuwah
2 Corinthians 1:21-22

21 “Now he which stablisheth us with you in Mashyach, and hath anointed us, is Yahuwah; 22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.”

Ephesians 1:12-13

12 “That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Mashyach. 13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise,”

Ephesians 4:30 “And grieve not the Holy Spirit of Yahuwah, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

Do Not Grieve The Holy Spirit

Some have used Ephesians 4:30 to promote the doctrine of the trinity (three gods), but there are other instances in The Scriptures in which “things” are given human qualities. This is a literary device called personification.

Psalms 77:16 “The waters saw thee, O Alahayam, the waters saw thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled.”

Proverbs 1:20 “Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets.”

Yashayah (Isaiah) 24:23 Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when Yahuwah of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Yahruwshalaam, and before his ancients gloriously.”

Yuwal (Joel) 1:10
The field is wasted, the land mourneth; for the corn is wasted: the new wine is dried up, the oil languisheth.

1 Corinthians 13:4 “Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,”

We are told that the Holy Spirit has the ability to teach. Many objects teach, but that does not make them a person. A book teaches. We know there is an author behind the book, but we say “I learned it from a book.”

The Holy Spirit has information stored in it and gifts in it from Yahuwah which it can impart to the people of Yahuwah. If a believer ignores the information imparted by the Holy Spirit or does not use the gift(s) imparted by the Holy Spirit, the apostle Shauwl liken it to grieving the Holy Spirit.

The Word “Seal”
Strong’s G4972 – sphragizō

1) to set a seal upon, mark with a seal, to seal

a) for security: from Satan

b) since things sealed up are concealed (as the contents of a letter), to hide, keep in silence, keep secret

c) in order to mark a person or a thing

1) to set a mark upon by the impress of a seal or a stamp

2) angels are said to be sealed by God

d) in order to prove, confirm, or attest a thing

1) to confirm authenticate, place beyond doubt

a) of a written document

b) to prove one’s testimony to a person that he is what he professes to be

What Is The Holy Spirit?

1. The seal which identifies the people of Yahuwah as belonging to Yahuwah (the I. D. and passport of Yahuwah).

2. The Holy Spirit protects from the wrath of Yahuwah.

3. The power of Yahuwah imparts holy gifts and holy character to the people of Yahuwah.

4. The Holy Spirit teaches (it has information stored on it).

5. The Holy Spirit helps the saints to remember the word of Yahuwah (it can extract information from its memory when we need it and impart it to the believer).

The Holy Angels As Agents Of The Holy Spirit
Revelation 7:1-3

1 “And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. 2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living Alahayam: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, 3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our Alahayam in their foreheads.”

The indication in verse 2 is that the “seal” is a thing which the angel has in his possession. The angel himself is not the seal. The “we” in verse 3 indicates either more than one angel has been designated in these last days to seal the saints with the power of Yahuwah or the angel is referring to himself as the distributor of the seal in conjunction with Yahuwah and Yahuwshuwah who are the authors of the seal.

The Holy Spirit Can Be Poured Out

Yashayah (Isaiah) 44:3 “For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:”

Yuwal (Joel) 2:28 “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:”

A person cannot be poured out.

A Person Can Be Filled With The Holy Spirit

Luke 4:1 “And Yahuwshuwah being full of the Holy Spirit returned from Yaradan (Jordan), and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,”

Acts 2:4 “And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”

Acts 7:55 “But he [Stephen], full of the Holy Spirit, looked up steadfastly into heaven and saw the glory of Yahuwah, and Yahuwshuwah standing at the right hand of Yahuwah.”

Ephesians 5:18 “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;”

The Holy Spirit is compared to things which flow when it is described as being “poured out” and believers being “full of” it or “filled with” it.

The Holy Spirit Is Given In Portions

2 Kings 2:9 “And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Alyah (Elijah) said unto Alyasha (Elisha), Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Alyasha (Elisha) said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.”

Numbers 11:17 “And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will take of the spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with thee, that thou bear it not thyself alone.

A believer can receive a specific portion of the Holy Spirit. The portion can consist of a specific amount and a specific type of gift through the Holy Spirit. A portion of a thing can be given, but a portion of a person cannot be given. The Holy Spirit is the power which emanates from Yahuwah which causes what is to exist. The Holy Spirit is the power which emanates from Yahuwah which causes what is to move. This power can be given to others according to the will of Yahuwah. Yahuwah wants the mankind He created in His image to not only look like Him, but He wants them to be able to do some of the same mighty wonders that He can do. However, the mankind must demonstrate first that they can be trusted with a portion of His power. If we succeed with the original portion as a good and faithful servant, we will be given a greater portion which will include immortality.

Who Distributes The Holy Spirit?

The portion of the Holy Spirit is distributed (given) by the following:

1. Yahuwah

2. Yahuwshuwah

3. other Holy Spirit anointed believers through the laying on of hands

4. authorized holy angels

Yahuwshuwah Given The Holy Spirit
Matthew 3:16-17

16 “And Yahuwah, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of Yahuwah descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: 17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

Yahuwah Can Give A Baby The Holy Spirit From His Mother’s Womb
Luke 1:13-15

13 “But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharyah (Zacharias): for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Alyashabah (Elisabeth) shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name Yohn (John). 14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth. 15 For he shall be great in the sight of Yahuwah, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb.”

The Day Of Pentecost: The Promise Fulfilled
Acts 2:1-4

1 “And when the day of Feast of Weeks (Pentecost) was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”

Yahuwah Has Manifested The Holy Spirit Visually In Some Cases

In the case of Yahuwshuwah, the Holy Spirit descended like a dove and the believers who received the Holy Spirit at the Feast of Weeks (Pentecost) the Holy Spirit appeared as cloven tongues like as of fire. There was a visual display of the presence and receipt of the Holy Spirit, but the bottom line evidence of the Holy Spirit anointing in the believer are the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the fruits of the Holy Spirit.

There were about 120 believers in the room at Pentecost, but they each received their own “cloven tongues like as of fire” and separate gift, but the anointing came from the same source which is Yahuwah. The anointing of the Holy Spirit can be liken to a cup full of water. The water in the cup can be dabbed on many people. All believers receive one dab, but the content of the dab is different. One dab can impart many gifts or one dab can impart one specific gift. However, the cup which is Yahuwah remains the same and does not change and never runs out of Holy Spirit to dab or anoint the people with. Yahuwah and Yahuwshuwah dwell in us through the Holy Spirit.

False Evidence Of The Holy Spirit

There are five manifestations I would like to address in this presentation that people falsely claim are scriptural manifestations and proofs of the Holy Spirit as follows:

1. glossolalia
2. shouting
3. slain in the spirit
4. holy laughter
5. snake handling and poison drinking

Glossolalia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glossolalia

“Glossolalia or speaking in tongues is the fluid vocalizing (or less commonly, the writing) of speech-like syllables which lack any readily comprehended meaning, in some cases as part of religious practice.[1] The significance of glossolalia has varied in context, with some minorities considering it as a part of a sacred language. It is most prominently practiced within Pentecostal and Charismatic Christianity, but it is also practiced in non-Christian religions.”

“Glossolalia also sometimes refers to xenoglossy, which is speaking in a natural language that was previously unknown to the speaker.”

“In Christianity, a supernatural explanation for glossolalia is advocated by some and rejected by others.”

“Glossolalists could, apart from those practicing glossolalia, also mean all those Christians who believe that the Pentecostal/charismatic glossolalia practiced today is the “speaking in tongues” described in the New Testament. They believe that it is a miraculous charism or spiritual gift. Glossolalists claim that these tongues can be both real, unlearned languages (i.e., xenoglossia)[13][14] as well as a “language of the spirit”, a “heavenly language”, or perhaps the language of angels.[15]”
“Cessationists believe that all the miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit ceased to occur early in Christian history, and therefore that the speaking in tongues practised today is simply the utterance of meaningless syllables. It is neither xenoglossia nor miraculous, but rather learned behavior, possibly self-induced. These believe that what the New Testament described as “speaking in tongues” was xenoglossia, a miraculous spiritual gift through which the speaker could communicate in natural languages not previously studied.”

“Proponents of each viewpoint use the biblical writings and historical arguments to support their positions.”

Glossolalia As Learned Behavior

“The admittedly fraudulent preacher Marjoe Gortner described in a 1977 interview how people learn glossolalia in a highly emotional religious setting.

“ “Tongues is something you learn,” he emphasized. “It is a releasing that you teach yourself. You are told by your peers, the church, and the Bible — if you accept it literally — that the Holy Ghost speaks in another tongue; you become convinced that it is the ultimate expression of the spirit flowing through you. The first time maybe you’ll just go dut-dut-dut-dut, and that’s about all that will get out. Then you’ll hear other people and next night you may go dut-dut-dut-UM-dut-DEET-dut-dut, and it gets a little better. The next thing you know, it’s ela-hando-satelay-eek-condele-mosandrey-aseya … and it’s a new language you’ve got down.”[72]”

Many are being taught that if they do not experience glossolalia they do not have the Holy Spirit.

What Are Tongues?
Strong’s G1100 Glossa

glossa {gloce-sah’} of uncertain affinity; TDNT – 1:719,123; n f AV – tongue 50; 50 1) the tongue, a member of the body, an organ of speech 2) a tongue 1a) the language or dialect used by a particular people distinct from that of other nations

Speaking In What Tongues?
Act 2:5-11

5 “And there were dwelling at Yahruwshalaam Yahuwdy, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. 6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. 7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? 8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? 9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Yahuwdyah (Judaea), and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia 10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Yahuwdy and proselytes, 11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of Yahuwah.”

The languages the believers spoke through the Holy Spirit consisted of already existing languages, and the scriptural record tells us what some of those languages were by naming some of the places the listeners were from.

Cloven Tongues Like As Of Fire

The believers at Pentecost received cloven tongues like as of fire through the Holy Spirit which gave them the ability to speak in tongues. The gift of speaking in tongues manifested itself in the fact that the audience which heard the believers speak the words of Yahuwah heard the words in their own native tongue (language).

The languages the believers spoke were not a series of unintelligible babblings of confusion as we witness in some congregations today. Yahuwah wanted the good news of salvation through Yahuwshuwah and His coming Kingdom to be preached to many nations, therefore, rather than having the believers go to school to learn a new language which requires time, He gave the believers the ability to speak existing languages instantaneously.

“Shouting!”

The following is my own definition of “shouting” from my own personal observance of the behavior:

Shouting in a religious context and church setting is practiced by the members of some congregations and can involve the following behaviors: shouting out of intelligible repetitious words (like glory, glory, praise god, praise god, hallelujah, hallelujah, yes lord, yes lord), crying out, while waving the arms about uncontrollably, kicking uncontrollably, twisting the body and limbs in contorted ways, falling out on the floor exposing the undergarments (this may require the deacons to place a cloth over the lower body of the female members while the shouting member writhes on the floor), running up and down the aisles, and holy ghost dancing. While under the influence of shouting, the member may urinate or defecate on themselves and grope themselves in the private area. Some members may have a desire to take off their clothes. During the shouting episodes, the children who observe the behavior in the adults undergo one of three responses: they either have a look on their face of pure terror, a look of ridicule, or they imitate the shouting adults.

Slain In The Spirit
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slain_in_the_Spirit

“”Slain in the Spirit” is a term used in charismatic Christianity to describe a religious behaviour in which an individual falls to the floor.[1] This usually happens during an event they perceive as a personal encounter with the Holy Spirit, often associated with the practice of laying on of hands.”

“Being slain in the Spirit is a practice where on occasions of public prayer ministry when, in following the direction of the scriptures, laying on of hands is practiced, church members or attendees may come forward to the front of the church (or in other gatherings not necessarily in a church service or building) to receive a special work of the Holy Spirit from the Pastor, service leader or a team of ministers.[2]:91 Often a significant amount of time is spent singing and praying during the church service before this point. Attendees are then prayed over and touched by the service leader or leaders. They perceive the Spirit of God upon them, and they fall, usually onto their backs.[3]:235 In most cases, their fall is broken by deacons, catchers, ushers or orderlies behind them to prevent injury. Beliefs associated with this phenomenon include divine healing, receiving visions, being set free of demonic spirits, hearing God speak.”

“Whether voluntary or involuntary, “falling before the Lord” as a human response to the manifestation of the Holy Spirit is seen by many charismatics as a phenomenon that is in harmony with the Scriptures. In the Bible, falling while in the presence of God was at times also accompanied by manifestations of trembling, convulsions, writhing, physical weakness or deep sleep.”

Holy Laughter
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holy_laughter

“Holy laughter is a term used within charismatic Christianity that describes a religious behaviour in which individuals spontaneously laugh during church meetings. It began in the early 1990s in Neo-charismatic churches and the Third Wave of the Holy Spirit.”

“The laughter ranges from very quiet to loud convulsive hysterics, which are said to be accompanied by temporary dissociation.[5]”

“Leaders who have promoted holy laughter claimed that the laughter was a result of joy that was supernaturally being given to people in the meetings.[9] They claimed that the joy was often accompanied by miraculous healing and the cessation of depression.[10]”

“Critics charged that the practice was the result of Psychological manipulation,[8] or Demonic possession.[14]”

They Shall Take Up Serpents
Mark 16: 17-18

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”

Some congregations interpret verse 18 as an invitation of the members of their congregation to handle snakes and drink poison to prove to themselves or others that they have the Holy Spirit.

Snake Handling And Poison Drinking
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snake_handling

“Snake handling or serpent handling is a religious ritual in a small number of Pentecostal churches in the U.S., usually characterized as rural and part of the Holiness movement. The practice began in the early 20th century in Appalachia, spreading to mostly coal mining towns. The practice plays only a small part of the church service of churches that practice snake handling.”

“As in the early days, worshipers are still encouraged to lay hands on the sick (cf. Faith healing), speak in tongues (cf. Glossolalia), provide testimony of miracles, and occasionally consume poisons such as strychnine.[5]”

Bit By A Viper
Acts 28:3-6

3 “And when Shauwl (Paul) had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid them on the fire, there came a viper out of the heat, and fastened on his hand. 4 And when the barbarians saw the venomous beast hang on his hand, they said among themselves, No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet vengeance suffereth not to live. 5 And he shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm. 6 Howbeit they looked when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly: but after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds, and said that he was a alahayam.”

Do Not Tempt Yahuwah
Matthew 4:5-7

5 “Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of Yahuwah, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7 Yahuwshuwah said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt Yahuwah thy Alahayam.

The Scriptures warn the people of Yahuwah that although Yahuwah can and has saved some of His people from out of some of the direst situations, the people of Yahuwah should not deliberately place themselves in harms way of danger simply to test or prove to themselves or to other people that Yahuwah will or can do it. Shauwl (Paul) did not deliberately pick the viper up to play and dance around with it (he was preparing a fire). The viper bit him and his natural response was to get the viper off of him. The snake handlers and strychnine takers are deliberately and erroneously putting themselves in danger of the venom of a snake and poison. Some people have have been hospitalized and died from this practice. There is one thing the people of Yahuwah should remember in the observation of these false feats of evidence. We have fallen angels among us who can take on the form of the mankind and they can get bit by snakes and drink strychnine all day long, and they will not be hurt or die. We need to make sure that we are not being deceived and tricked into following the example of the fallen angels who cannot be hurt by these practices, but we as human beings can be hurt and can die.

When Yahuwshuwah Comes

A question each one of us must ask ourselves when it comes to our struggle with sin, practices, and our behavior is “Do I want to be caught in the act of that behavior when Yahuwshuwah comes?” Do I want to be laying out on the floor in a frenzied state waving my arms uncontrollably and babbling uncontrollable words with my nakedness exposed when Yahuwshuwah returns? Do I want to be laughing in an uncontrollable frenzy while people are being starved, tortured, killed and the world is being burned and reduced to rubble, and trampled underfoot all around us when Yahuwshuwah comes.

If Yahuwshuwah was to return “this” very day, would he say “well done good and faithful servant” (Matthew 25:21) or would he say “I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” (Matthew 7:23).

Confusion Of Tongues In The Congregation
1 Corinthians 14:21-23

21 “In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith Yahuwah. 22 Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe. 23 If therefore the whole congregation be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?”

There was confusion in the first century congregation too over the subject of tongues (languages), but it was not over glossolalia. The members of the congregation were using the gift of tongues (languages) that had been given to them through the Holy Spirit at inappropriate times and all at the same time. Imagine walking into a room of 100 people and about 50 of them are speaking languages foreign to you all at the same time. It is difficult to learn anything in such an environment. The gift of tongues (languages) was given for the benefit of unbelievers who spoke foreign languages so that they could hear the word of Yahuwah in their native language, but if everyone speaks English, it is unnecessary for a member to speak Latin. If two members mutually know Spanish, they should speak in Spanish rather than the one of them speaking in Greek simply because he has the gift of Greek. The members of the congregation placed the gift of speaking in tongues (languages) on a higher pedestal than the gift of prophesying. Shauwl (Paul) corrected them and let them know that prophesying was a higher gift than speaking in tongues (languages) because the prophecies concern the hidden things of Yahuwah and the future things of Yahuwah. The unbeliever cannot benefit from a tongue (language) he or she does not understand nor can the believers.

“But If All Prophesy”
1 Corinthians 14:24-26

24 “But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all: 25 And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship Yahuwah, and report that Yahuwah is in you of a truth. 26 How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.”

But if all have the gift to prophesy and an unbeliever hears the prophecy in a language which they understand then they can possibly benefit from the word, but The Scriptures instruct the people of Yahuwah that they should not all prophesy at the same time nor demonstrate the other gifts of the Holy Spirit (psalms, doctrines, speaking in tongues, revelations, interpretations, etc.) for the sake of displaying them, but they should use them for the edification of unbelievers and the congregation.

Two Or At The Most Three
1 Corinthians 14:27-32

27 “If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret. 28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the congregation; and let him speak to himself, and to Yahuwah. 29 Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge. 30 If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace. 31 For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted. 32 And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.”

An “unknown” tongue (language) is not a reference to the gibberish of glossolalia. An unknown tongue (language) is a foreign tongue (language) or an unfamiliar tongue (language). The congregation was instructed to permit two or three at the most to speak in tongues (languages) or to prophesy during a meeting and those two or three were to take turns. Another requirement is that there must be an interpreter present to interpret the tongue (language). “Everyone” else is instructed to keep silent until their turn. Although the wives in this congregation are given an additional admonition in relation to their husbands (1 Corinthians 14:34-36), the instruction “let him keep silence in the congregation” is directed at both men and women. I have come to the conclusion that the two or three at the most limitation is in reference to each separate gift (two or three can speak in tongues/languages, two or three can prophesy, two or three can share a new song, two or three can share revelation, etc. but all in turn).

Decently And In Order

1 Corinthians 14:33 “For Yahuwah is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all congregations of the saints.”

1 Corinthians 14:37 “If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of Yahuwah.”

1 Corinthians 14:40 “Let all things be done decently and in order.”

Yahuwah requires His people to worship Him in an unconfused, peaceful, decent and orderly manner.

Spirit And Truth

Yohn (John) 4:24 “Yahuwah is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

Some critics of the charismatic interpretation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit believe the behavior (glossolalia, shouting, slain in the spirit, holy laughter, and snake handling) seen in some modern congregations is the result of the following:

1. peer pressure and manipulation (being told that they must participate in the behavior because it is the evidence that they have the Holy Spirit, otherwise they do not have the Holy Spirit)

2. learned behavior (the member decides to imitate other members who practice the behavior)

3. demon possession (they have an evil spirit rather than the Holy Spirit passed on to them at the laying on of hands)

The people of Yahuwah are striving to break the bonds of peer pressure and wicked learned behaviors. Pretense is not worshiping Yahuwah in spirit and in truth. Furthermore, the people of Yahuwah should be careful about whom they permit to lay hands on them.

The Gift Of The Holy Spirit: The Names
1 Corinthians 12:1-3

1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant. 2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led. 3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of Yahuwah calleth Yahuwshuwah accursed: and that no man can say that Yahuwshuwah is the Master, but by the Holy Spirit.”

One gift given through the Holy Spirit is recognition that Yahuwshuwah is the Master who came to the earth and died for the sins of the mankind, and the Holy Spirit gives the people of Yahuwah the power to confess and preach about the name of Yahuwshuwah. The confession of the name Yahuwshuwah is one of the evidences of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer. When we speak about Yahuwshuwah, we will speak that he came to the earth to bring a blessing and not a curse.

The Gift Of The Holy Spirit: Witnessing Proselytism
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proselytism

“Proselytizing (play /ˈprɒsɨlɨtaɪzɨŋ/) is the act of attempting to convert people to another religion or opinion. The word proselytize is derived ultimately from the Greek language prefix προσ- (toward) and the verb ἔρχομαι (to come) in the form of προσήλυτος (a new comer).[1] Historically in the Koine Greek Septuagint and New Testament, the word proselyte denoted a gentile who was considering conversion to Judaism. Though the word proselytism originally referred to Early Christianity (and earlier Gentiles), it now refers to any religions’ or religious individuals’ attempts to convert people to their beliefs or even any attempt to convert people to another point of view, religious or not.”

“Many religions, including Christianity and Islam, believe that their religion is the only true faith. However, while Judaism discourages active proselytism in other religious communities and maintains an exclusivist doctrine on adherence, Christianity and Islam both doctrinally advocate active proselytism, while discouraging converts from maintaining multiple adherences or apostasy.”

“Proselytism is considered inappropriate, disrespectful or offensive by some individuals. As such, it is not protected in certain environments open to the public or are owned privately: government buildings, public education (grade schools and college campuses), the workplace and private properties like ones’ home or front yard. These environments, due to either their openness or privacy, are often where proselytism takes place and can come from a variety of sources depending on the environment (e.g., students and teachers in schools or colleges, coworkers, office workers, family members, or neighbors in a community).”

“Limits on proselytism is a combination of what is considered legal (and this varies from country to country) and what is considered moral or respectful (and this varies from person to person).”

“Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” (Matthew 7:12). I don’t want to be placed in an environment in which someone is preaching what I have come to believe is false doctrine to me, and I am unable to remove myself from the message. Therefore, it is reasonable that others may feel the same way about their beliefs. At this time, I have chosen to use the method of putting my witness in print and videos by way of the internet, and leave it in the hands of Yahuwah to draw a person and bring the increase.

A Season And A Time To Every Purpose
Ecclesiastes 3:1-7

1 “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; 3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”

There is a season and time for every thing which is why the people of Yahuwah need to use wisdom in their use of the gift of witnessing. Some seasons, times, and places are not appropriate. The people of Yahuwah are not free to witness whenever and where ever they want to. The spirit and truth of the matter is that it is irritating when someone is pushy, repetitive, and aggressive in their approach of preaching their religious beliefs.

The Different Methods Of Witnessing

The Scriptures reveal that the disciples used different methods to witness and preach to the people as follows:

1. in public places outside
2. visiting house to house
3. in the synagogues
4. permitting people to come to them
5. handwritten books and letters
6. by example in their behavior

In our modern times we have the additional outlets of television, radio, telephone, newsprint, videos (dvds/cds), tapes, and the internet to preach the word of Yahuwah. However, there are laws in some places and in some religions against proselytizing. I can only suggest that the people of Yahuwah use wisdom and caution when choosing a method to serve as a witness because in some places it can be a matter of imprisonment or life and death just as it was for Stephen who preached new doctrines that were contrary to the beliefs and customs of his people (Acts Chapters 6 and 7).

My Confession: Church Invitations

“Before” I was converted to what I have come to believe are the true scriptural doctrines, a relative of mine ask me to attend a Benny Hinn healing revival. The same relative later asked me to attend a Roman Catholic Church service. I declined both invitations. Since I’ve moved to my hometown, I visited a church with my relatives and found myself in an awkward situation when one of my relatives started “shouting” and another one of my relatives asked me to assist in controlling the shouting relative. For some reason, I declined to assist and the relative looked at me perplexed. Perhaps Yahuwah was opening my eyes even then. I have had co-workers and fellow students to witness to me and give me some of their religious literature. We would have to go out of the world to avoid proselytizers completely.

An appropriate response to those who try to proselytize the people of Yahuwah is a polite “no thank you.” However, “if asked” (meaning I would do my best to suppress the urge to go on a witness rant unless someone tells me they want to hear my witness) about the hope that is in me, I am ready to give a scriptural explanation for the hope that is in me or I can refer people to my videos and presentations.

If the same relative were to ask me today “why don’t you want to go to the healing revival or Roman Catholic Church service with me?”, I would feel compelled to explain the new found hope that is in me because the relative would have opened the door for the explanation by asking that question.

The Diversities Of Gifts Are To Profit Withal
1 Corinthians 12:4-11

4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Master. 6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same Alahayam which worketh all in all. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. 8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; 9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: 11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.”

There are many diverse gifts including ones that are not mentioned in The Scriptures that Yahuwah may decide to give to His people. We should not place limitations on Yahuwah. Yahuwah distributes the gifts of the Holy Spirit as needed. One believer may be given one gift while another believer may be given many gifts. The gifts of the Holy Spirit are given to the believer to serve all and are not given for the purpose of self edification (look what I can do).

The Parable Of The Talents
Matthew 25:14-27

14 “For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. 15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. 16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. 17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. 18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his master’s money. 19 After a long time the master of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. 20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Master, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. 21 His master said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy master. 22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Master, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. 23 His master said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy master. 24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Master, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: 25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. 26 His master answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. 29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

In the parable of the talents, we find that if the believer does not use the gifts to bring in an increase of fruit for Yahuwah, the believer can lose the gifts including the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Yahuwah wants fruit in the form of other believers which are gained through the witness and the fruit of the removal of sin from our own lives.

The people of Yahuwah should not hide the talents (gifts) given them through the Holy Spirit, but should use them to bring in an increase. It would be unprofitable for me to prepare this presentation and not upload it to share it with others. We also learn from the parable that fear is not an excuse. Yahuwshuwah reveals that when a believer does not use his or her spiritual gifts, it is due to wickedness and laziness.

We Can Become A Cast Away

1 Corinthian 9:27 “But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.”

Shauwl knew that it was possible for him to become a castaway (an unprofitable servant who is cast into outer darkness) even after he had brought an increase because the people of Yahuwah have to be on the watch to not become wicked and lazy about the spiritual gifts. We need to take some time out and do some research on the word “if” in The Scriptures because if we did, we would find that our salvation is conditional. As a matter of fact, we would find that we are not saved at this time. Salvation is a future event. Our salvation is based on “But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” (Matthew 24:13) The end is until death or at the coming of Yahuwshuwah. One of the most dangerous people to meet in this world is one who believes they have received a spirit through which all their past, present, and future sins are forgiven and that they are saved already irrevocably and will go to a place of heavenly bliss no matter what they do in life.

Being “In The Spirit”

Revelation 1:10 “I was in the Spirit on the Master’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,”

Yohn (John) was in the spirit on the Master’s Day and the result of the experience is the entire Book of Revelation. We must ask ourselves, do the people who claim they are “in the spirit” “speaking in glossolalia” or “slain in the spirit” produce mighty organized written works of prophecy or oratory works of edification that would serve to benefit the unbelievers and people of Yahuwah after these experiences as the disciples produced. We need to ask ourselves “did I learn anything from Mr. or Mrs. Doe when Mr. or Mrs. Doe were in the spirit that edifies Yahuwah and Yahuwshuwah or helped me to grow in the faith?”

The Gifts Of The Holy Spirit Will Cease

1 Corinthians 13:8 “Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.”

The Scriptures reveal that a time is coming when the gifts of the Holy Spirit will cease. The Cessationist believe that the spiritual gifts have already ceased, but what do The Scriptures say about this matter.

The Spiritual Gifts Will Cease In The Future

Yaramayah (Jeremaiah) 31:34 “And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know Yahuwah: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith Yahuwah: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”

Zacharayah (Zechariah) 13:2-3

2 “And it shall come to pass in that day, saith Yahuwah of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land. 3 And it shall come to pass, that when any shall yet prophesy, then his father and his mother that begat him shall say unto him, Thou shalt not live; for thou speakest lies in the name of Yahuwah: and his father and his mother that begat him shall thrust him through when he prophesieth.”

Zaphanayah (Zephaniah) 3:9 “For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of Yahuwah, to serve him with one consent.”

The gift of prophecy through the Holy Spirit will not cease until all unfulfilled prophecy has been fulfilled. When the people of Yahuwah preach the prophecies as recorded in The Scriptures, this is considered prophesying. The false prophets will cease out of the land. To say that the gift of prophecy has ceased already is to set a limit on what Yahuwah can do in the life of His people. The people of Yahuwah should always believe that any gift can be given to them, if it is the will of Yahuwah. The last prophecies to be fulfilled involve the creation of a new heaven and new earth and until we see that prophecy fulfilled, the prophecies of Yahuwah are still alive and well on the earth. Preaching the knowledge of Yahuwah will cease after all come to know Him. The gift of speaking in tongues will cease at some time in the future after Yahuwah returns for His people because the time is coming when their will be only one language and no need for other languages. Furthermore, we are awaiting the appearance of the two witnesses who will have gifts of power and will perform mighty works through the gifts of the Holy Spirit and they will give their testimonies (prophesy and teach). Will they rely on our current news media system to translate and get their message to the inhabitants of the earth or will they have the gift of speaking in tongues (languages)? The true gifts of the Holy Spirit are alive and well.

The Truth About Your Right And Left Hand [YAHUWAH]

The Positive Right And Negative Left

Matthew 25:31-34, 41

31 “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:”

41 “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:”

The “right hand” and “the left” in this parable is a reference to location (the side they will be on) rather than the literal and physical hand of Yahuwshuwah.

Seated On The Right Hand Of Yahuwah

Luke 22:69 “Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of Yahuwah.”

Colossians 3:1 “If ye then be risen with Mashyach, seek those things which are above, where Mashyach sitteth on the right hand of Yahuwah.”

The Scriptures reveal that being seated on the right hand side of a head or leader is a positive place to be and represents a place of high esteem, honor, or authority.

The Request For The Right Hand Side And Left Hand Side Of Yahuwshuwah

Matthew 20:20-23

20 “Then came to him the mother of Zebedee’s children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him. 21 And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom. 22 But Yahuwshuwah answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able. 23 And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.”

We can see in this request that both the right hand side and the left hand side can be a positive place to be in relationship to Yahuwshuwah in The Kingdom. In the parable of the sheep and the goats, in that particular situation, the left side is chosen as a place of separation for the wicked. There is nothing sinister about the left side in and of itself. Yahuwah created both the left side and the right side as forms of direction like the north, south, east, and west. They are all forms of direction and location.

Oaths Made With The Right Hand
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oath

“An oath (from Anglo-Saxon āð, also called plight) is either a statement of fact or a promise calling upon something or someone that the oath maker considers sacred, usually God, as a witness to the binding nature of the promise or the truth of the statement of fact. To swear is to take an oath, to make a solemn vow. Those who conscientiously object to making an oath will often make an affirmation instead.”

“The essence of a divine oath is an invocation of divine agency to be a guarantor of the oath taker’s own honesty and integrity in the matter under question. By implication, this invokes divine displeasure if the oath taker fails in their sworn duties. It therefore implies greater care than usual in the act of the performance of one’s duty, such as in testimony to the facts of the matter in a court of law.”

“A person taking an oath indicates this in a number of ways. The most usual is the explicit “I swear,” but any statement or promise that includes “with * as my witness” or “so help me *,” with ‘*’ being something or someone the oath-taker holds sacred, is an oath. Many people take an oath by holding in their hand or placing over their head a book of scripture or a sacred object, thus indicating the sacred witness through their action: such an oath is called corporal. However, the chief purpose of such an act is for ceremony or solemnity, and the act does not of itself make an oath.[citation needed]”

“Common examples of oaths include:

I swear on my mother’s life
I swear on my grandmothers grave”

Yahuwah Swore By His Right Hand

Yashayah (Isaiah) 62:8 “Yahuwah hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength, Surely I will no more give thy corn to be meat for thine enemies; and the sons of the stranger shall not drink thy wine, for the which thou hast laboured:”

In these last days, the mankind has placed a lot of faith in the right hand for reasons unknown to me. They require the mankind to swear, pledge, vow, and make oaths by the right hand. Perhaps in religious circles this became an acceptable practice based upon Yashayah (Isaiah) 62:8, but under the New Covenant, the people of Yahuwah are commanded to avoid making vows especially by anything that is holy to Yahuwah (like His name, His Person, or the name of His Son, etc.) nor by “anything” because Yahuwah owns everything, therefore, nothing is ours to make a vow by, including our right hand.

An Affirmation
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Affirmation_in_law

“In law, an affirmation is a solemn declaration allowed to those who conscientiously object to taking an oath. An affirmation has exactly the same legal effect as an oath, but is usually taken to avoid the religious implications of an oath. In some jurisdictions, it may only be given if such a reason is provided.”

To affirm something is the same as saying “yes” as long as it does not include the ritual of placing the hand(s) on an object like The Scriptures or any other object or include the phrase “so help me god.” It is impossible for people of different faiths to have faith in your word based upon you making an oath in the name of “your” Alahayam—we believe in Yahuwah, but they don’t. What is your Alahayam to them? They don’t even believe that Yahuwah keeps His own word and will fulfill everything He has spoken in His word, therefore, how can they believe that Yahuwah can verify or vouch for your word. A simple “yes” or “no” should be sufficient.

Superstitions About The Left Hand

In certain cultures, some superstitions and negative connotations have been attached to the left hand, and because of this negativity, some children have been forced by their parents, school teachers, and society to use their right hand even though they demonstrated a more dominant left hand, however, the people of Yahuwah must approach the left hand from a scriptural perspective.

Right And Left Handedness
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Left_handedness

“Handedness is a human attribute defined by unequal distribution of fine motor skills between the left and right hands. An individual who is more able with the right hand is called right-handed and one who is more skilled with the left is said to be left-handed. The majority of infants have developed hand preference at 6 months of age.[1] A minority of adult people are equally skilled with both hands, and are termed ambidextrous. It is one example of body laterality.”

“The reasons for handedness, and why right-handedness is dominant are not known for certain, but a number of theories have been proposed.”

Four Main Types Of Handedness

Dexterity and dextrous refers to motor skills of the hand and fingers.

There are four main types of handedness:

1. right handedness is the most common and means a person is dextrous with the right hand and represents about 70-90% of the population

2. left handedness means a person is dextrous with the left hand and represents about 10% of the population

3. mixed-handedness means a person is able to do different tasks better with different hands

4. ambidexterity is rare and means a person is able to do any task equally well with either hand

Left Handed Leaders

President Barack Obama signing with left hand
President Barack Obama signing with the left hand

“Of the seven most recent U.S. Presidents, four, including Barack Obama, have been left-handed, while a fifth is said to have been ambidextrous: Ronald Reagan, who was left-handed by birth,[44][45][46] became president after he defeated left-handed candidate George H. W. Bush in the Republican primary election. Four years earlier, Reagan had lost the Republican presidential primary to incumbent left-handed President Gerald Ford. George H. W. Bush succeeded Reagan and later ran for re-election against left-handers Bill Clinton[47] and Ross Perot.[46] Clinton’s second term opponents included Perot, and Bob Dole who had become left-handed when his right arm was paralyzed in combat 50 years earlier. Left-handed then-Senator Obama defeated left-handed Senator John McCain in his race for the presidency.[48]”

Some believe that left handed and right handed people dominate in different professions, and some have been pointing out the fact that several of the last days leaders are left handed. Other left-handers are as follows:

Queen Elizabeth II
Prince Charles of England
Prince Williams of England
Colonel Oliver North White House Aid
Colin Powell
Fidel Castro, Cuban leader
Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli prime-minister
Ehud Olmert, previous Israeli prime-minister
David Rockefeller, banker
Laura Chinchilla President of Costa Rica
President of Mexico Felipe Calderon
Prime Minister David Cameron
Mr Lee Hsien Loong Singapore’s Prime Minister
President Hugo Chavez Frias
Osama Bin Laden (March 10, 1957 – May 2, 2011)

Left Handed Men In The Scriptures

Judges 20:15-16

15 “And the children of Ban-Yamyan (Benjamin) were numbered at that time out of the cities twenty and six thousand men that drew sword, beside the inhabitants of Gibeah, which were numbered seven hundred chosen men. 16 Among all this people there were seven hundred chosen men lefthanded; every one could sling stones at an hair breadth, and not miss.”

The Scriptures reveal that the left handed men among the Ban-Yamyanites (Benjamites) were very skilled and precise men with the sling and stones. This is a compliment to them and not a negative.

Ahuwd (Ehud)

Judges 3:15-21

15 “But when the children of Yahsharahal cried unto Yahuwah, Yahuwah raised them up a deliverer, Ahuwd (Ehud) the son of Gera, a Ban-Yamyanite (Benjamite), a man lefthanded: and by him the children of Yahsharahal sent a present unto Eglon the king of Moab. 16 But Ahuwd (Ehud) made him a dagger which had two edges, of a cubit length; and he did gird it under his raiment upon his right thigh. 17 And he brought the present unto Eglon king of Moab: and Eglon was a very fat man. 18 And when he had made an end to offer the present, he sent away the people that bare the present. 19 But he himself turned again from the quarries that were by Gilgal, and said, I have a secret errand unto thee, O king: who said, Keep silence. And all that stood by him went out from him. 20 And Ahuwd (Ehud) came unto him; and he was sitting in a summer parlour, which he had for himself alone. And Ahuwd (Ehud) said, I have a message from Alahayam unto thee. And he arose out of his seat. 21 And Ahuwd (Ehud) put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly:”

Yahuwah sent this left handed man to deliver the Yahsharahalites from King Eglon. Yahuwah works with left handed people, Yahuwah will use left handed people as leaders, and Yahuwah saves left handed people and holds no prejudice against them. Like a right handed boxer in a ring with a left handed boxer, they both have to compensate for the handedness of the other. King Eglon was unfamiliar with Ahuwd (Ehud) and would not have expected danger to come from his left hand. The people of Yahuwah should not force their children to use the right hand or hold a bias against left handed people because the left handed people have a place in the congregation of Yahuwah and both right handedness and left handedness could be deliberate on the part of Yahuwah to serve His purpose to win on both the battlefield of war and the spiritual battlefield.

Ambidextrous Men

1 Chronicles 12:1-2

1 “Now these are they that came to Duwad (David) to Ziklag, while he yet kept himself close because of Shauwl (Saul) the son of Kish: and they were among the mighty men, helpers of the war. 2 They were armed with bows, and could use both the right hand and the left in hurling stones and shooting arrows out of a bow, even of Shauwl’s (Saul’s) brethren of Ban-Yamyan (Benjamin).”

Once again, this is a compliment to the Ban-Yamyanites (Benjamites) that they were valued men among the Yahsharahalites for their ambidexterity. There is no superstition in this skill whatsoever.

Should We Bless With The Left Hand?

Genesis 48:10-19

10 “Now the eyes of Yahsharahal were dim for age, so that he could not see. And he brought them near unto him; and he kissed them, and embraced them. 11 And Yahsharahal said unto Yuwsaph (Joseph), I had not thought to see thy face: and, lo, Alahayam hath shewed me also thy seed. 12 And Yuwsaph (Joseph) brought them out from between his knees, and he bowed himself with his face to the earth. 13 And Yuwsaph (Joseph) took them both, Apharyam (Ephraim) in his right hand toward Yahsharahal’s left hand, and Manashah (Manasseh) in his left hand toward Yahsharahal’s right hand, and brought them near unto him. 14 And Yahsharahal stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon Apharyam’s (Ephraim’s) head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manashah’s (Manasseh’s) head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Manashah (Manasseh) was the firstborn.

15 And he blessed Yuwsaph (Joseph), and said, Alahayam, before whom my fathers Abaraham and Yahtsachaq (Isaac) did walk, the Alahayam which fed me all my life long unto this day, 16 The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abaraham and Yahtsachaq (Isaac); and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth. 17 And when Yuwsaph (Joseph) saw that his father laid his right hand upon the head of Apharyam (Ephraim), it displeased him: and he held up his father’s hand, to remove it from Apharyam’s (Ephraim’s) head unto Manashah’s (Manasseh’s) head.18 And Yuwsaph (Joseph) said unto his father, Not so, my father: for this is the firstborn; put thy right hand upon his head. 19 And his father refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know it: he also shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations.”

Yaaqob/Jacob whose name was changed to Yahsharahal crossed his hands and blessed Apharyam (Ephraim) the younger with the right hand and Manashah (Manasseh) the older with the left hand, but they both received the blessing of adoption and rank in the birth order among the sons of Yahsharahal. Apharyam (Ephraim) received the birthright instead of Rauwban (Reuben) or Manashah.

It is acceptable to bless with either the right hand or the left hand, however, in this case the right hand held the greater blessing.

The Greek Word For “Hand”
Strong’s G5495 Cheir

χειρ cheir {khire} – hand

A plural form of the Greek word “hand” (χειρας) is used in several of the New Testament scriptures when speaking about the “laying on of hands.”

The Laying On Of Hands (Plural)

Matthew 19:13-15

13 “Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands (χειρας) on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. 14 But Yahuwshuwah said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. 15 And he laid his hands (χειρας) on them, and departed thence.”

Mark 6:5 “And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands (χειρας) upon a few sick folk, and healed them.”

Acts 9:17 “And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands (χειρας) on him said, Brother Shauwl (Saul), the Master, even Yahuwshuwah, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Spirit.”

Acts 28:8 “And it came to pass, that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and of a bloody flux: to whom Shauwl (Paul) entered in, and prayed, and laid his hands (χειρας) on him, and healed him.”

Yahuwshuwah and the disciples used both the left hand and the right hand to bless, heal, and to impart the Holy Spirit to the people.

Islam And The Left Hand
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etiquette_in_the_Middle_East

“Among Muslims, the left hand is reserved for bodily hygiene and considered unclean. Thus, the right hand should be used for eating. Shaking hands or handing over an item with one’s left hand is considered an insult.[2]”

It is a good thing to respect the customs of other people as long as the custom is not adverse to the laws of Yahuwah. There is no law which states that the people of Yahuwah must consider the left hand unclean or that the people of Yahuwah must wash themselves with the left hand. There is no law which states that the people of Yahuwah must eat, shake hands, or hand items over with the right hand, however, as far as public etiquette and respect is concerned at the invitation of a Muslim into their house, we should respect the custom to keep the peace or decline the invitation. Washing oneself or wiping oneself after toilet use is a private matter and should be done with the hand that a person can get the task done best with. After toilet use, both of the hands are brought together and rubbed together during the cleaning process and both hands come in contact with the other many times throughout the day. A thorough hand wash with soap and water is sufficient to remove uncleanness from both hands of the people of Yahuwah. The man or woman among the people of Yahuwah who loses the left or right hand in an accident is free to use the opposite saved hand without any negativity being attached to it.

Political Figures And Hand Signs

Proverbs 6:12-14 warn us about people who use hand signs, finger signs, wink signs, eye signs, leg signs, and foot signs to talk with one another. Proverbs is not speaking about the common wave hello or wave goodbye we commonly use nor is it talking about the American Sign Language used by the deaf. Yahuwah wants His people to be aware that there are those who use their body parts to send secret messages with secret gestures to one another. Those who use their body parts to speak in this manner—we are told—are froward and up to mischief and discord—not peace. Having lived in the Los Angeles area for more than 24 years, I have seen a few of the hand signs the “gang bangers” used to express their affiliation with a particular gang, but when some of the YouTubers showed me videos with many of our political leaders—people in very high position (kings, queens, presidents, wives of presidents, prime ministers, etc)—displaying hand signs similar to those made by gang bangers, I was struck with awe. What I found most perplexing about the hand signs is that the leaders of countries which claim to be adverse and opposed to one another all speak the same hand signs. Have our political leaders from all over the world joined together in one common secret affiliated goal?

My Confession: Ignorant Of The Signs

During the time I lived in Los Angeles and when I was younger, I had an incident in which I was standing at the bus stop, and in my ignorance, I was wearing a red T-shirt in the wrong neighborhood, and an older and younger man were at the same bus stop having a conversation. The younger man kept “eyeing” me, but I didn’t know why, until he grimaced his face in anger and shouted to the older man in mid conversation his disdain for my red T-shirt. The older man calmed him down, but to this day I do not wear red T-shirts because of the secret sign it may send. Another time, at the bus stop in Los Angeles, a man walked up to me and asked me “where you from?” In my ignorance, I started talking to the man about my hometown where I was raised, but later found out in gang speech, the man wanted to know what gang I was affiliated with. Fortunately, in both those two cases, the bus came and I got on it quick. In my hometown, my sister and I found ourselves taking care of some business at the police station and my sister introduced a man to me as her friend. I took the man’s hand and shook it with the appropriate amount of glee and pleasure at meeting a family friend. It turns out that my sister was being sarcastic in the knowledge that the man was not her friend. It turns out that the man was really a Ku Klux Klan member who was at the police station to register his identification as one who wanted to participate in the KKK march in the area. The point is that this white man wore the signs of his affiliation, but I had missed the sign of the “swastika” and the joke my sister was playing on me. We need to be aware of the various signs because it can be a matter of life and death.

It does not matter if the hand sign is in the form of “I Love You” or the hand sign is in the form of “the devil” Cornuto Sign of the Horns. It doesn’t matter if the secret hand sign is made with the right hand or the left hand.

Something meant to be positive can be taken and used with secret negative intentions.

I can take a glass of water and drink it as refreshment or I can take that same glass of water and toss it in your face in a fit of anger. Everything can be used for righteousness sake or wickedness sake.

Hand signs are a sign of acknowledgment that those that practice them know something that we don’t, and the sarcasm behind secret signs is that “I can display this sign right before their faces and they are ignorant sheeple and they don’t know the meaning behind it (chuckle chuckle).”

Secret Handshakes
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secret_handshake

“A secret handshake is a distinct form of handshake or greeting which conveys membership in or loyalty to a club, clique or subculture. The typical secret handshake involves placing one’s fingers or thumbs in a particular position, one that will be recognized by fellow members while seeming to be a normal handshake to non-members. This type of shibboleth is most frequently associated in the popular consciousness with college fraternities, fraternal orders and secret societies.”

“A secret handshake can also be a useful form of familiar interaction between friends, colleagues, and family members. As a form of cryptography, secret handshakes are shared only with select and elect peoples. Usually a secret handshake has underlying meanings that differ from person to person. Secret handshakes involve a precise, sometimes complex series of movements and contact between two individuals or even a group. Usually, these movements involve the primary use of hands, but could also involve a series of touching feet, elbows, or in some cultures a friendly kiss.”

Expose Secrecy

Ephesians 5:11 “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

Affiliation with secret organizations and secret handshakes is not a place for the people of Yahuwah. Sometimes these secret organizations are engrossed in criminal activity and for one to bind themselves to secrecy to such an organization blindly is irresponsible. The people of Yahuwah should even avoid instances in which someone states that they have something to confess to them in secret and they attempt to make us swear we won’t tell any one “before” they divulge the content of the information. What if the person confesses that they are a serial rapist or serial murderer? The people of Yahuwah are not under bondage to withhold knowledge or to protect the wicked from the proper authorities within the congregation or without the congregation in the secular world. When the people of Yahuwah hid or helped a person escape, they did it because the person was not guilty of any crime within the law of Yahuwah.

The Greeting Of The Congregation

Romans 16:16 “Salute one another with an holy kiss. The congregations of Mashyach salute you.”

1 Corinthians 16:20 “All the brethren greet you. Greet ye one another with an holy kiss.”

1 Thessalonians 5:26 “Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.”

Within the congregation of Yahuwah, the members are encouraged and instructed to greet one another with a holy kiss rather than a handshake. In our modern times, it has become a matter of taboo for men to kiss or embrace other men, but we can see in the Old and New Testament that there was a time in the history of Yahsharahal and the congregation of Yahuwah that His people were an affectionate people towards one another. Fathers kissed and embraced sons and sons kissed and embraced fathers. Brothers kissed and embraced brothers. The men among Yahsharahal and men in society in general have come to equate manhood with what I call walking with a “rooster strut” or they place their manhood in the amount of money they make and the power and status they can attain in the secular world, but what makes a man or woman for that matter, is one who is “poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.” (Yashayah /Isaiah 66:2) Even though the men of Yahsharahal had holy affection towards one another and kissed and embraced one another, they were men who were warriors on the battlefield as long as they had a contrite spirit and feared the word of Yahuwah.

The Handshake
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Handshake

“A handshake is a short ritual in which two people grasp one of each other’s like hands, in most cases accompanied by a brief up and down movement of the grasped hands.”

“Archaeological ruins and ancient texts show that handshaking was practiced in ancient Greece as far back as the 5th century BC; a depiction of two soldiers shaking hands can be found on part of a 5th century BC funerary stele on display in the Pergamon Museum, Berlin (stele SK1708)[1][unreliable source?] and other funerary steles like the one of the 4th century BC which depicts Thraseas and his wife Euandria handshaking (see images on the right). Some researchers have suggested the handshake may have been introduced in the Western World[specify] by Sir Walter Raleigh in service with the British Court during the late 16th century.[2] The handshake is thought by some to have originated as a gesture of peace by demonstrating that the hand holds no weapon.[3][4][5]”

The entrance and exit handshake of greeting, such as before and at the end of a job interview, is a custom of uncertain origins. I can only caution the people of Yahuwah to be careful what they shake on. The handshake is not a sinister practice in and of itself as long as it does not have a secret meaning behind it or does not initiate one into something that is evil and opposed to Yahuwah.

What Is A Holy Kiss?
(fellowshipping in person)

A holy kiss is a sacred kiss or holy affection between the members of the congregation dedicated to Yahuwah. There is nothing sexual in a holy kiss. A holy kiss can consist of lip to lip, lip to cheek, or cheek to cheek depending on the familiarity of the persons. An embrace can be achieved without pressing the lower body parts of the hip area against one another, but I say this mainly to those who are in a position to fellowship in person with other members of the congregation of Yahuwah.

The “Right Hands” Of Fellowship

Galatians 2:9 “And when Yames (James), Cephah, and Yohn (John), who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.”

G1188 dexios {dex-ee-os’} from 1209; TDNT – 2:37,143; adj AV – right hand 39, right 12, right side 2; 53 1) the right, the right hand 2)) metaph. 2a) a place of honour or authority

This scripture is one witness that the handshake was possibly used among the disciples, but it could just as well be interpreted as Shauwl and Barnabas were seated at the right hand side of the three disciples when they visited them. In our modern times, the handshake as a custom is reserved mainly for strangers. The handshake places distance between the two recipients of the handshake. We have several witnesses in The Scriptures that the congregation of Yahuwah was an affectionate people who practiced the holy kiss or embraced.

Obscene Hand Signs: The Finger
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finger_%28gesture%29

“In Western culture, the finger (as in giving someone the finger or the bird[1]), also known as the finger wave, the middle finger, flipping someone off,[1] or the one finger salute is an obscene hand gesture [*see note below]. It is performed by showing the back of a closed fist that has only the middle finger extended upwards, though in some locales the thumb is also extended. Extending the finger is considered a universal symbol of contempt.”

“The gesture dates back to Ancient Greece and was also used in Ancient Rome. Historically, it represented the phallus. In recent times, the gesture has gained increased acceptance, and has been used increasingly by musical artists, athletes, and politicians. However, many still view the gesture as obscene. Many cultures use similar gestures to display their disrespect.”

*The Wikipedia article included profanity and an image of “the finger” and the true meaning of what “the finger” means, but I have excluded the profanity and the image as to not offend my viewers. The gesture is considered obscene whether made with the right hand or the left hand and it is intended to have a secret message behind it and should not be used by the people of Yahuwah. We need to examine ourselves to see if we have this gesture or any other obscene gesture in our life and remove them from our hand speech.

The “V” Hand Sign
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V_sign

“The V sign is a hand gesture in which the index and middle fingers are raised and parted, while the other fingers are clenched. It has various meanings, depending on the cultural context and how it is presented. It is most commonly used to represent the letter “V” as in “victory”; as a symbol of peace (usually with palm outward); as an offensive gesture (palm inward); and to represent the number 2. It was adopted by the 1960s counterculture movement as a sign for peace.”

“The insulting version of the gesture (with the palm inwards) is often compared to the offensive gesture known as “the finger”. The “two-fingered salute”, also known as “The Longbowman Salute”, “the two” and as “The Tongs” in the West of Scotland and “the forks” in Australia,[7] is commonly performed by flicking the V upwards from wrist or elbow. The V sign, when the palm is facing toward the person giving the sign, has long been an insulting gesture in England,[8] and later in the rest of the United Kingdom; though the use of the inward peace sign as an insulting gesture is largely restricted to the UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.[1] It is frequently used to signify defiance (especially to authority), contempt, or derision.[9]”

The people of Yahuwah need to be aware of these hand signs and obscene gestures so that we will be aware of the secret meaning behind them, and be aware of those around us who have potential evil intentions against us.

The Truth About My Left Hand

Throughout this presentation I have deliberately failed to mention that this subject is very personal to me because I am a left handed person, and I felt a need to address this topic considering all the negative connotations attached to the left hand. Fortunately, I had siblings to precede me who are also left handed, therefore, I was not subjected to the biases some parents place on their children to use the right hand. If the wicked have chosen to attach some secret meaning or significance to the left hand or to their left handed leaders in these last days, it is not from Yahuwah. Yahuwah created both the right hand and the left hand and He said they were both very good. The mankind have been known to sin with the right hand and the left hand, and they have been known to do good with the right hand and the left hand. How we choose to use either hand (for righteousness or for wickedness) is left up to us.

Yahuwah Created Sex And It Was Very Good [YAHUWAH]

Introduction

The purpose of this presentation is to address a few of the sexual issues that the people of Yahuwah–both married and unmarried and both male and female—may be facing in these last days with a focus on physical and chemical possibilities.

The Creation Of The Reproductive Organs

Genesis 1:26-28, 31

26 “And Alahayam said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So Alahayam created man in his own image, in the image of Alahayam created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And Alahayam blessed them, and Alahayam said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”

31 “And Alahayam saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Be Fruitful And Multiply

It is true that one of the reasons Yahuwah created the differences in the male and female reproductive systems is because He wanted the husband and wife to be able to reproduce images of themselves, thereby reproducing the image of Yahuwah and Yahuwshuwah over and over again, but Yahuwah also reveals that reproduction is not the only reason He created mankind with male and female reproductive organs.

The Desire Of Chuwah (Eve)

Genesis 3:16 “Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.”

Yahuwah tells us that He placed a desire in Chuwah (Eve) toward her husband Adam that would overpower the pain of childbirth. Despite the excruciating pain of labor a wife would still desire to have sex with her husband.

Avoid Separation

1 Corinthians 7:4-5

4 “The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. 5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Shatan (Satan) tempt you not for your incontinency.”

The husbands and wives are instructed to avoid being separated from one another for long periods of time, unless it is for service to Yahuwah, because both the husband and wife are subject to the desire of sex, therefore, they are both subject to the potential to commit adultery. There are those in some cultures who believe that the gift of sex from Yahuwah is strictly for the pleasure of the male species, and this type of thinking has led to some abominable practices and injustices against women.

Something Is Wrong With The Reproductive Organs

Despite the fact that The Scriptures reveal that Yahuwah created the reproductive organs and “it was very good,” many married couples are having sexual dysfunctional problems within their marriage in these last days. The dysfunction is not from Yahuwah as already shown. Yahuwah wants both the husband and the wife to have the desire for sex and derive pleasure from the experience. Yahuwah created the male and female reproductive system so very good that The Scriptures demonstrate that Yahuwah intended the husband and the wife to have sex all the days of their life, even in their old age.

Sex Before The Flood: Age

In the beginning, the genealogy of the sons of Adam reveals that the mankind lived longer. Some lived more than 900 years, yet The Scriptures reveal that their reproductive systems were working properly as they were created to work and they had sons and daughters even into their old age. (Genesis 5:1-32)

Sex After The Flood Abaraham And Sharah: Age

Genesis 17:17 “Then Abaraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sharah, that is ninety years old, bear?”

Genesis 21:5 “And Abaraham was an hundred years old, when his son Yahtsachaq (Isaac) was born unto him.”

Genesis 25:1-2

1 “Then again Abaraham took a wife, and her name was Katurah. 2 And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.

As we can see, after The Flood, sexual dysfunction was still not a problem for the 100 year old Abaraham and the 90 year old Sharah. Something is wrong with the male and female sexual organs in these last days because more and more drugs and devices a being invented to assist in the stimulation of the reproductive organs. Even after Sharah died, Abaraham was still going strong in the area of sexual desire and reproductive organ function and decided to get married again to Katurah and he fathered more children.

King Shalamah (Solomon): Many Wives

1 Kings 11:1-3

1 “But king Shalamah (Solomon) loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaah (Pharaoh), women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites; 2 Of the nations concerning which Yahuwah said unto the children of Yahsharahal, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their alahayam: Shalamah (Solomon) clave unto these in love.” 3 And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart.”

I would assume that a man who had this many wives and concubines had to have reproductive organs that were functioning properly.

Libido
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libido

“Libido (lə’biːdoʊ) refers to a person’s sex drive or desire for sexual activity. The desire for sex is an aspect of a person’s sexuality, but varies enormously from one person to another, and it also varies depending on circumstances at a particular time. Sex drive has usually biological, psychological, and social components. Biologically, levels of hormones such as testosterone are believed to affect sex drive; social factors, such as work and family, also have an impact; as do internal psychological factors, like personality and stress. Sex drive may be affected by medical conditions, medications, lifestyle and relationship issues. A person who has extremely frequent or a suddenly increased sex drive may be experiencing hypersexuality, but there is no measure of what is a healthy level for sex. Asexual people may lack any sexual desires.”

Erectile Dysfunction http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erectile_dysfunction

“Erectile dysfunction (ED) is sexual dysfunction characterized by the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis during sexual performance.[1]”

“A penile erection is the hydraulic effect of blood entering and being retained in sponge-like bodies within the penis. The process is often initiated as a result of sexual arousal, when signals are transmitted from the brain to nerves in the penis. Erectile dysfunction is indicated when an erection is difficult to produce. There are various circulatory causes, including alteration of the voltage-gated potassium channel, as in arsenic poisoning from drinking water.[2] The most important organic causes are cardiovascular disease and diabetes, neurological problems (for example, trauma from prostatectomy surgery), hormonal insufficiencies (hypogonadism) and drug side effects.”

“Psychological impotence is where erection or penetration fails due to thoughts or feelings (psychological reasons) rather than physical impossibility; this is somewhat less frequent but often can be helped.”

Female Sexual Arousal Disorder
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Female_sexual_arousal_disorder

“Female sexual arousal disorder (FSAD), commonly referred to as frigidity, is a disorder characterized by a persistent or recurrent inability to attain sexual arousal or to maintain arousal until the completion of a sexual activity. The diagnosis can also refer to an inadequate lubrication-swelling response normally present during arousal and sexual activity. The condition should be distinguished from a general loss of interest in sexual activity and from other sexual dysfunctions, such as the orgasmic disorder (anorgasmia) and hypoactive sexual desire disorder, which is characterized as a lack or absence of sexual fantasies and desire for sexual activity for some period of time.”

“Although female sexual dysfunction is currently a contested diagnostic, pharmaceutical companies are beginning to promote products to treat FSD, often involving low doses of testosterone.”

Let’s take a look at some of the possible causes of sexual dysfunction in the human species.

Chemtrail Conspiracy Theory? Arsenic Poisoning http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemtrail_conspiracy_theory

“The chemtrail conspiracy theory holds that some trails left by aircraft are actually chemical or biological agents deliberately sprayed at high altitudes for purposes undisclosed to the general public in clandestine programs directed by government officials.[1] This theory is not accepted by the scientific community, which states that they are just normal contrails, as there is no scientific evidence supporting the chemtrail theory.”

I, personally, have not been able to find an actual lab report online from a government agency or private agency that has tested and analyzed the chemical composition of the chemtrails phenomena and our rainwater, but on the many websites that promote that chemtrails are harmful to the mankind they claim that many harmful chemicals such as barium and arsenic have been found in the chemtrails. In the Wikipedia erectile dysfunction article, “arsenic in drinking water” is mentioned as one of the possible culprits that causes erectile dysfunction.

We must consider the possibility that the sexual dysfunction phenomena is part of the depopulation agenda and that an outside and foreign substance is being deliberately introduced into the system of the mankind to cause this phenomena like arsenic in drinking water.

High Blood Pressure
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypertension

“Hypertension (HTN) or high blood pressure, sometimes called arterial hypertension, is a chronic medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is elevated.[1] This requires the heart to work harder than normal to circulate blood through the blood vessels. Blood pressure is summarised by two measurements, systolic and diastolic, which depend on whether the heart muscle is contracting (systole) or relaxed between beats (diastole). Normal blood pressure at rest is within the range of 100-140mmHg systolic (top reading) and 60-90mmHg diastolic (bottom reading). High blood pressure is said to be present if it is persistently at or above 140/90 mmHg.”

“Hypertension is a major risk factor for stroke, myocardial infarction (heart attacks), heart failure, aneurysms of the arteries (e.g. aortic aneurysm), peripheral arterial disease and is a cause of chronic kidney disease. Even moderate elevation of arterial blood pressure is associated with a shortened life expectancy. Dietary and lifestyle changes can improve blood pressure control and decrease the risk of associated health complications, although drug treatment is often necessary in people for whom lifestyle changes prove ineffective or insufficient.”

High Blood Pressure Statistics
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypertension

“As of 2000, nearly one billion people or ~26% of the adult population of the world had hypertension.[78] It was common in both developed (333 million) and undeveloped (639 million) countries.[78] However rates vary markedly in different regions with rates as low as 3.4% (men) and 6.8% (women) in rural India and as high as 68.9% (men) and 72.5% (women) in Poland.[79]”

“In 1995 it was estimated that 43 million people in the United States had hypertension or were taking antihypertensive medication, almost 24% of the adult United States population.[80] The prevalence of hypertension in the United States is increasing and reached 29% in 2004.[81][82] As of 2006 hypertension affects 76 million US adults (34% of the population) and African American adults have among the highest rates of hypertension in the world at 44%.[83] It is more common in blacks and native Americans and less in whites and Mexican Americans, rates increase with age, and is greater in the southeastern United States. Hypertension is more prevalent in men (though menopause tends to decrease this difference) and in those of low socioeconomic status.[2]”

High Blood Pressure Medications

I am among the 44% of black people in the United States who are afflicted with high blood pressure. The side effects of one of the medications I take for the condition states:

“Check with your doctor as soon as possible if you experience a decrease in the amount of urine produced, decreased sexual ability”

It is important for the people of Yahuwah to assess the side effects of all the medications they take because the medications we take can have an effect on our sexual ability. Both married couples (medications can cause sexual dysfunction) and single people (medications can cause a lack of desire to marry) should assess their medications.

EPPPs
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Environmental_Persistent_Pharmaceutical_Pollutant

“The term Environmental Pharmaceutical Persistent Pollutant (EPPP), was suggested in the nomination 2010 of pharmaceuticals and environment as an emerging issue to Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM) by the International Society of Doctors for the Environment (ISDE).”

“Pharmaceuticals are synthetic chemicals belonging to a wide group of different chemical families and may also react different in the environment.”

“There exists very well documented evidence that some pharmaceuticals enter and persist in the environment, some are endocrine disruptors (synthetic hormones), some are designed to kill bacteria and viruses (antibiotics) and may affect microorganism and wild life in severe and unexpected ways. Little is known on the possible negative effects and impacts of EPPP in humans and the environment by diffuse and systematic exposure, for long periods of time, especially during the vulnerable periods of development.”

“As there are thousands of different synthesized chemicals present at the same time in the environment, different interactions may occur and the result of these multiple exposure in human and nature are not sufficiently studied or understood.”

“EPPPs are insufficiently addressed as not covered by other international or regional agreements or arrangements.”

Pharmaceuticals In The Drinking Water

“Pharmaceuticals comprise one of the few groups of chemicals specifically designed to act on living cells, which presents a special risk when they enter, persist and disseminate in the environment. Pharmaceutical chemicals are designed to be non-degradable to resist the acid environment in the stomach, and to be long-lasting; to be administrated according to a specific defined time schedule.”

“As the world’s population is growing and ageing, more people can afford medical treatment and new treatments are developed, the amounts of pharmaceuticals can be expected to increase rapidly. Pharmaceuticals chemicals entering the environment persist there and residues are presently found in drinking water. They are found in fish where they may accumulate. The presence of different pharmaceutical chemicals contributes to the increasing multiple chemical cocktail that today’s population is exposed to. Vulnerable populations are exposed, for example foetuses during the windows of development, with possible important consequences for life.”

“EPPPs are already found in water all over the world. The diffuse exposure might contribute to

extinction of species and imbalance of sensible ecosystems, as many EPPPs affect the reproductive systems of for example frogs, fish and mussels;

genetic, developmental, immune and hormonal health effects to humans and other species, in the same way as e.g. oestrogen-like chemicals;

development of microbes resistant to antibiotics, as is found in India.[1]”

In other words, the medications of the manufacturers and those prescribed to other people that are released into the environment may be medicating us and causing the phenomena of sexual dysfunction in the population.

How Pharmaceuticals Are Released Into The Environment

“Pharmaceuticals reach the environment mainly in three ways:”

“They are excreted from humans and animals, intact or metabolized, mainly into the urine, passing on to the environment directly or via sewage plants.”

“Unused reach the environment either via household water or via urban solid garbage handling.”

“Manufacturing plants producing the active substances might unintentionally release pharmaceuticals into the environment.”

“Some pharmaceuticals are degraded to various extents in sewage treatment plants, but others leave the plant in active forms. Active residues of pharmaceuticals have been detected in surface water, and they may persist in the environment for long periods of time. Large amounts of antibiotics and other pharmaceuticals have been found downstream from sewage plants for pharmaceutical industries. EPPPs from sewage sludge used as fertilizer are absorbed by soya, and antibiotics have been found in the leaves.”

Known Effects Of Pharmaceuticals In The Environment: Estradiol (estrogen, synthetic hormone)

“Concentrations in surface water alone are not sufficient to assess the risk of negative environmental effects in the aquatic environment. Synthetic hormones are endocrine disruptors. Thus, estrogenic compounds like ethinyl-estradiol (estrogen hormone) at concentrations < 1 ng per litre may cause both vitellogenin production (a frequently used index for feminization of male fish), and structural change in their sex organs. It has also been demonstrated that fish exposed to sewage treatment plant (STP) effluent can take up and concentrate estrogenic compounds, including ethinyl-estradiol, to very high internal levels. These observations on feminization of fish by estrogenic compounds in STP effluents have been observed in many countries, and have also been observed in other species, like frogs, alligators and molluscs.”

Keep in mind that this article claims that there have not been sufficient studies on the effects pharmaceuticals such as estrogen and synthetic hormones released into the environment have on the reproductive organs of the male of the human species, but it is causing the male fish to become feminine.

What Is Estrogen?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estrogen

Estrogens (AmE), or oestrogen (BE), are a group of compounds named for their importance in the estrous cycle of humans and other animals. They are the primary female sex hormones.

While estrogens are present in both men and women, they are usually present at significantly higher levels in women of reproductive age. They promote the development of female secondary sexual characteristics, such as breasts, and are also involved in the thickening of the endometrium and other aspects of regulating the menstrual cycle. In males, estrogen regulates certain functions of the reproductive system important to the maturation of sperm[10][11][12] and may be necessary for a healthy libido.[13][14]

“Some hair shampoos on the market include estrogens and placental extracts; others contain phytoestrogens. There are case reports of young children developing breasts after exposure to these shampoos.[46] On September 9, 1993, the FDA determined that not all topically applied hormone-containing drug products for OTC human use are generally recognized as safe and effective and are misbranded. An accompanying proposed rule deals with cosmetics, concluding that any use of natural estrogens in a cosmetic product makes the product an unapproved new drug and that any cosmetic using the term “hormone” in the text of its labeling or in its ingredient statement makes an implied drug claim, subjecting such a product to regulatory action.[47]”

The “children” that developed breast could include boys and girls because the Wikipedia article does not specify. Some topically applied products with estrogens and placental extracts have the ability to feminize the male human species. The people of Yahuwah need to start reading the ingredients of the products they choose to use.

Cardiovascular Pharmaceuticals

“Other examples of environmental impact in the aquatic environment of human medication concern both cardiovascular and neuro-psychiatric medicines. The non-selective beta-blocking agent propanolol was found to cause a significant decrease in egg production in medaka fish, at a concentration close to that demonstrated in the sewage treatment plants (STP) effluents. Gemfibrozil (cholesterol and triglycerides lowering drug) often appears in the effluent from STPs. At concentrations close to those reported in STP effluent, gemfibrozil lowers the blood levels of testosterone in fish.”

This category of pharmaceuticals has an effect on the reproductive organs in the egg production and blood levels of testosterone in fish, but they have not yet studied if similar risk exist for the human species.

Create A Problem Provide A Solution:Viagra, Cialis, Levitra http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sildenafil

Chanuwk (Enoch) 8:3 “Semjaza taught enchantments, and root-cuttings, Armaros the resolving of enchantments,”

“Sildenafil citrate, sold as Viagra, Revatio and under various other trade names, is a drug used to treat erectile dysfunction and pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). It was originally developed by British scientists and then brought to market by the US-based pharmaceutical company Pfizer.[1] It acts by inhibiting cGMP-specific phosphodiesterase type 5, an enzyme that promotes degradation of cGMP, which regulates blood flow in the penis. Since becoming available in 1998, sildenafil has been the prime treatment for erectile dysfunction; its primary competitors on the market are tadalafil (Cialis) and vardenafil (Levitra).”

Semjaza and Armaros are two fallen angels who were working in concert in the days of Chanuwk (Enoch). Semjaza taught the mankind how to cause the problem with spells, potion, and medicine and Armaros taught the mankind how to resolve the problem.

They Make Merchandise Of You

2 Peter 2:3 “And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”

The correction of sexual dysfunction through medication is a multi-million dollar industry.

A Profitable Business
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sildenafil

“Even though sildenafil is available only by prescription from a doctor, it was advertised directly to consumers on U.S. TV (famously being endorsed by former United States Senator Bob Dole and soccer star Pelé). Numerous sites on the Internet offer Viagra for sale after an “online consultation”, often a simple web questionnaire.[47][48] The “Viagra” name has become so well known that many fake aphrodisiacs now call themselves “herbal viagra” or are presented as blue tablets imitating the shape and colour of Pfizer’s product. Viagra is also informally known as “Vitamin V”, “the Blue Pill”, “Blue Diamond” as well as various other nicknames.[49]”

“In 2000, Viagra sales accounted for 92 percent of the global market for prescribed erectile dysfunction pills.[50] By 2007, Viagra’s global share had plunged to about 50 percent[51] due to several factors, including the entry of Cialis and Levitra, along with several counterfeits and clones, and reports of vision loss in people taking PDE5 inhibitors.[52][53]”

“In February 2007, it was announced that Boots, the UK pharmacy chain, would try over-the-counter sales of Viagra in stores in Manchester, England. Men between the ages 30 and 65 would be eligible to buy four tablets after a consultation with a pharmacist.[54]”

This should not be necessary especially for a 30 year old man, but The Scriptures prophesy that the merchants (corporations) would make merchandise of the people. Some of the young men are taking medication for sexual dysfunction as a form of recreation when they don’t even need to.

Forbidding To Marry
1 Timothy 4:1-3

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which Yahuwah hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

In the first century A.D., there were heretics who were forbidding people to marry in hypocrisy. This means that while they were forbidding people to marry they were getting their own sexual lust satisfied in secret in some way.

If We Can’t Control Ourselves
1 Corinthians 7:8-9

8 “I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I. 9 But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.”

Some translations of verse 9 translates the last phrase as “for it is better to marry than to burn with passion”, but “with passion” is not implied here nor are these words in the Greek text. What is implied is that if a man or woman does not get married, it could lead to fornication, which could lead to the lake of fire where they will literally burn. The Scriptures instruct the people of Yahuwah to get married if we cannot contain ourselves and be unmarried like Shauwl (Paul).

Through 1 Corinthians 7:8-9, The Scriptures reveal that the unmarried will experience sexual desire that can build up and lead to fornication if the unmarried cannot control themselves. Physiological changes will occur in both the unmarried males and unmarried females. Yahuwah knows how He created our bodies. Both males and females will begin to experience swelling, lubrication, and desire for release in the genital area which requires the person to exercise self-control or to get married.

Nocturnal Emissions
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nocturnal_emission

“A nocturnal emission or wet dream is a type of spontaneous orgasm, involving either ejaculation during sleep for a male, or lubrication of the vagina for a female.[1] Nocturnal emissions are most common during adolescence and early young adult years, but they may happen any time after puberty. It is possible to wake up during a wet dream, or to simply sleep through it.”

Nocturnal Emissions In Men

“The frequency of nocturnal emissions is highly variable. Some men have experienced large numbers of nocturnal emissions as teenagers, while others have never experienced one. 84% of men in the United States will experience nocturnal emissions at some time in their life.[2] For males who have experienced nocturnal emissions the mean frequency ranges from 0.36 times per week (about once every three weeks) for single 15-year-old males to 0.18 times per week (about once every five-and-a-half weeks) for 40-year-old single males. For married males the mean ranges from 0.23 times per week (about once per month) for 19-year-old married males to 0.15 times per week (about once every two months) for 50-year-old married males.[3] In some parts of the world nocturnal emissions are more common. For example in Indonesia surveys show that 97% of men experience nocturnal emissions by the age of 24.[4]”

Nocturnal Emissions In Women

“The frequency of nocturnal emissions is variable, just as with men. In 1953, sex researcher Alfred Kinsey found that nearly 40% of the women he interviewed have had one or more nocturnal orgasm or ‘wet dream’. Those who report experiencing these say that they usually have them several times a year and that they have first occurred as early as thirteen, and usually by the age of 21. Dr. Kinsey defined female nocturnal orgasm as sexual arousal during sleep that awakens one to perceive the experience of orgasm. Girls and women who don’t have orgasms in their sleep, or who don’t know whether or not they’ve had them, are perfectly normal. Studies have found that more boys and men have spontaneous nocturnal sexual experiences than girls and women, but female wet dreams may be more difficult to identify with certainty than men’s.[9]”

Nocturnal Emissions In The Scriptures
Deuteronomy 23:9-11

9 “When the host goeth forth against thine enemies, then keep thee from every wicked thing.10 If there be among you any man, that is not clean by reason of uncleanness that chanceth him by night, then shall he go abroad out of the camp, he shall not come within the camp: 11 But it shall be, when evening cometh on, he shall wash himself with water: and when the sun is down, he shall come into the camp again.”

This is a commandment for the man (both married and single) who is camped out in preparation for a battle or after a battle, if he should become unclean by chance at night in the camp, the law stated that he should leave the camp from among the other men and follow the commandment of Yahuwah to make himself ceremonially clean. The key is that it happened by chance that he released himself and not deliberately on the part of the man.

Masturbation Is Not An Option

2 Timothy 3:2 “For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,”

Masturbation falls in the category of “for men shall be lovers of their own selves.” The people of Yahuwah need to go to Yahuwah in prayer for help from the sin of masturbation if one has this problem. Either pray for marriage or pray for self-control. Masturbation is not one of the options given to the people of Yahuwah. Genesis 38:9 “And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother.” We can see with Onan that Yahuwah does not approve of a man “deliberately” spilling his seed on the ground. Yahuwah has given the mankind a natural release through nocturnal emissions while they sleep to relieve some of the pressure off the genitals.

Virginity And Being Unmarried Has Its Benefits
1 Corinthians 7:32-35

32 “But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Master, how he may please the Master: 33 But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife. 34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Master, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband. 35 And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that ye may attend upon the Master without distraction.

A Life Of Virginity And Celibacy

However, there is no commandment from Yahuwah that requires the people of Yahuwah or its pastors to take a vow of virginity or celibacy to serve Him or please Him. As a matter of fact, under the new covenant, Yahuwah commands His people not to make vows, pledges, oaths, and swears and to let our yes be yes and our no be no (Matthew 5:33-37). The wicked virgins and celibates will be cast into the lake of fire, if they are not virgins and celibates in service to Yahuwah who endure in that service to the end. Virginity and celibacy in and of themselves will not get anyone into the kingdom of Yahuwah. In the resurrection, those among the mankind who are given a body of flesh and blood will rise as virgins because they will be given a brand new body that has never engaged in sexual activity before and they will be given the opportunity to live life over again.

1 Timothy 3:1-5 “This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. 2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; 3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; 4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; 5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of Yahuwah?)”

Yahuwah is aware of the power of the sexual desire that He placed in both men and women, and the people of Yahuwah have instruction to get married, if one cannot control him or herself. The leaders of the congregation are encouraged to have a preference for leaders who are married and have demonstrated that they are able to rule their own house before they are designated to manage the house of Yahuwah. There are instances in which both married pastors and single pastors have had female congregation members to confess that they are struggling with the desire for sex and the pastor ends up in a sexual relationship with the female member to solve the problem. There is also strife in some congregations between the female members to become the “First Lady” of a single pastor. This is less likely to happen if a chosen leader already possess the characteristics mentioned in 1 Timothy 3:1-5. That said, it is obvious through The Scriptures that single people are not excluded from being chosen as leaders over the congregation.

Female Genital Mutilation
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Female_genital_mutilation

“Female genital mutilation (FGM), also known as female genital cutting and female circumcision, is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as “all procedures that involve partial or total removal of the external female genitalia, or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons.”[1]”

“FGM is typically carried out on girls from a few days old to puberty. It may take place in a hospital, but is usually performed, without anaesthesia, by a traditional circumciser using a knife, razor, or scissors. According to the WHO, it is practiced in 28 countries in western, eastern, and north-eastern Africa, in parts of the Middle East, and within
some immigrant communities in Europe, North America, Australasia.[2] The WHO estimates that 100–140 million women and girls around the world have experienced the procedure, including 92 million in Africa.[1] The practice is carried out by some communities who believe it reduces a woman’s libido.[3]”

Classifications of FGM

“The WHO has offered four classifications of FGM. The main three are Type I, removal of the clitoral hood, almost invariably accompanied by removal of the clitoris itself (clitoridectomy); Type II, removal of the clitoris and inner labia; and Type III (infibulation), removal of all or part of the inner and outer labia, and usually the clitoris, and the fusion of the wound, leaving a small hole for the passage of urine and menstrual blood—the fused wound is opened for intercourse and childbirth.[4] Around 85 percent of women who undergo FGM experience Types I and II, and 15
percent Type III, though Type III is the most common procedure in several countries, including Sudan, Somalia, and Djibouti.[5] Several miscellaneous acts are categorized as Type IV. These range from a symbolic pricking or piercing of the clitoris or labia, to cauterization of the clitoris, cutting into the vagina to widen it (gishiri cutting), and introducing corrosive substances to tighten it.[4]”

The Commandment Of Circumcision
Genesis 17:10-14

10 “This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised. 11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you. 12 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed. 13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant. 14 And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.

The Fear Of The Libido Of Females

Yahuwah did not give His people a commandment to circumcise the females among His people. The people of Yahuwah believes that Yahuwah designed the female genitals exactly the way He intended for it to be designed and it was very good. The people of Yahuwah do not believe that they can carve, cut, or corrode the female genitals to make the design of it better than the design of Yahuwah. Yahuwah intends for the females among His people to have a libido so that they will desire to get married and when they do get married their desire will be toward their husband and they as wives will be ready to receive him. Yahuwah wants His people to exercise spiritual sexual self-control with the help of the Holy Spirit or get married. The fact that Yahuwah created females with the ability to reach orgasms the same as He created males with the ability is proof that He wants a wife to enjoy the sexual bond too, and anyone tampering with this bond is fighting against the will of Yahuwah. The people of Yahuwah should not engage in the practice of female genital circumcision.

Honor Killing
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honor_killing

“An honor killing, or honour killing[1] (in Arabic: جرائم الشرف ; also: honor murder[2][3]) is the homicide of a member of a family or social group by other members, due to the belief of the perpetrators that the victim has brought dishonor upon the family or community. Honor killings are directed mostly against women and girls. The perceived dishonor is normally the result of one of the following behaviors, or the suspicion of such behaviors: dressing in a manner unacceptable to the family or community, wanting to terminate or prevent an arranged marriage or desiring to marry by own choice, especially if to a member of a social group deemed inappropriate, engaging in heterosexual acts outside marriage and engaging in homosexual acts. Many women’s groups in the Middle East and Southwest Asia suspect that more than 20,000 women are killed each year.[4]”

“Human Rights Watch defines “honor killings” as follows:”

“Honor killings are acts of vengeance, usually death, committed by male family members against female family members, who are held to have brought dishonor upon the family. A woman can be targeted by (individuals within) her family for a variety of reasons, including: refusing to enter into an arranged marriage, being the victim of a sexual assault, seeking a divorce—even from an abusive husband—or (allegedly) committing adultery. The mere perception that a woman has behaved in a way that “dishonors” her family is sufficient to trigger an attack on her life.[5]”

“Men can also be the victims of honor killings by members of the family of a woman with whom they are perceived to have an inappropriate relationship.[6] The loose term “honor killing” applies to killing of both men and women in cultures that practice it.[7]”

“Some women who bridge social divides, publicly engage other communities, or adopt some of the customs or the religion of an outside group may be attacked. In countries that receive immigration, some otherwise low-status immigrant men and boys have asserted their dominant patriarchal status by inflicting honor killings on women
family members who have participated in public life, for example, in feminist and integration politics.[8]”

The Adulteress Caught In A Sexual Sin
Yohn (John) 8:4-9

4 “They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Mashah (Moses) in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? 6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Yahuwshuwah stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. 7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. 8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. 9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Yahuwshuwah was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.”

This example represents a change in the law. Under the new covenant Yahuwah sent His Son to let His people know that they are not qualified to administer the death penalty because we are sinners in need of repentance and have the death penalty hanging over our own heads and until Yahuwah reinstitutes the death penalty to be administered by His people (and He will), we should follow the instruction given by Yahuwshuwah and stop casting stones.

1 Corinthians 5:11-13

11 “But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. 12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? 13 But them that are without Yahuwah judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.”

1 Corinthians 5:1-5

1 “It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife. 2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. 3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed, 4 In the name of our Master Yahuwshuwah Mashyach when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Master Yahuwshuwah Mashyach, 5 To deliver such an one unto Shatan (Satan) for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Master Yahuwshuwah.”

There was still hope for the man who committed this sexual sin. The congregation needed to put him out of the congregation and send him back out into the world to get his behind whipped by Shatan (Satan) a little, but the congregation should have the hope that he would repent and return to Yahuwah.

Punishment For Sexual Sins

Punishment for sexual sins among the congregation of the people of Yahuwah is limited to “not to keep company” with that brother or sister and “put away from among you” that brother or sister. The ministers are instructed to counsel the man or woman about the sexual sin and to try to bring him or her to repentance, but if they refuse to repent (stop committing the sexual sin), get that man or woman who is a habitual sexual offender away from the congregation so that the rest of the congregation will not be tempted.

The people of Yahuwah are no longer permitted to administer the death penalty for sexual sins or any other sins. Yahuwah now offers repentance and forgiveness to the mankind to the day he or she dies. Under the new covenant, it is always open to the brother or sister during his or her lifetime to turn around and get back on the righteous path.

Cover Up Your Nakedness

Genesis 3:21 “Unto Adam also and to his wife did Yahuwah Alahayam make coats of skins, and clothed them.”

Revelation 16:15 “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.”

Yahuwah covered up the nakedness of Adam and Chuwah (Eve) with the covering of animals skins after they sinned and realized that they were naked. Yahuwah wants His people to cover up their nakedness. Exposing the nakedness in public is considered a shameful thing.

The “I Can Dress However I Want To” Attitude

Yahuwah says that His people cannot dress however they want to. Yahuwah tells his people to cover up their nakedness. The people of Yahuwah have a responsibility to not tempt others with our nakedness. Those who think their nakedness does not have an effect on others are under strong delusion. Pornography is big business and many invest their money in the business of pornography because they know that there is an audience that desires to see the nakedness of others.

I have even seen reports of people who place hidden cameras in the toilets of public restrooms because they have a desire to see the nakedness of people while they urinate, defecate, and wipe themselves.

The Breastfeeding In Public Controversy

Recently, I saw a news report of a teacher who took her baby to the school where she works (she claims she did this because her baby was sick and she could not get a babysitter), and right in the middle of class, the teacher begins to breastfeed her baby in front of her students.

During the same news report, the reporter showed a group of women “demonstrating” in a park who are pro-public breastfeeding. Some of the women had their breast out breastfeeding their babies in the public park.

Breastfeeding In Public For The People Of Yahuwah

Yahuwah commands His people to cover up their nakedness. The breast are an intimate part of a females anatomy especially in our modern times. There are many “breast men” in the world who attach a strong sexual desire to the breast of a woman. Even exposing cleavage can be a point of sexual attraction for some men. There are women in the world who believe that it is appropriate for a nursing mother to take out her breast in public and breastfeed a baby, but as for the nursing mothers of the people of Yahuwah, Yahuwah commands His daughters to cover up their nakedness. If a baby needs to be breastfed while out in public, the nursing mothers of the people of Yahuwah can both naturally feed their baby “and” obey the commandment of Yahuwah by placing a thin or light blanket over the bared breast and head of the suckling baby while in public so their nakedness will not be exposed. The nursing mothers of the people of Yahuwah have nothing to prove or demonstrate to the world regarding breastfeeding.

Sexual Issues In The People Of Yahuwah
1 Yohn (John) 2:1-2

1 “My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Yahuwshuwah Mashyach the righteous: 2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.”

The people of Yahuwah should feel comfortable to speak with Yahuwah about sexual matters. Yahuwah knows everything about us and there is nothing hidden from His face. Those among the people of Yahuwah who are experiencing sexual issues in their life should seek Yahuwah about it in prayer and ask for healing and strength to overcome the problem.

The Sexual Desire Of The People Of Yahuwah
Matthew 4:8-10

8 “Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Yahuwshuwah unto him, Get thee hence, Shatan (Satan): for it is written, Thou shalt worship Yahuwah thy Alahayam, and him only shalt thou serve.”

Abary (Hebrews) 4:15 “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”

Yahuwah is well aware of the desire for sex that He placed in both His sons and His daughters. Yahuwshuwah was tempted in all points which includes the area of sex yet he remained sinless. When Shatan offered Yahuwshuwah the kingdoms of this world that world included all the wives and concubines Yahuwshuwah could ever want and Yahuwshuwah declined the offer. The people of Yahuwah have been given the Holy Spirit as a help to fight temptation in the area of sexual desire. Let’s draw upon the power of Yahuwah to help us through this matter.

Take Heed!

The Aswan Dam Prophecy Against Egypt [YAHUWAH]

Based upon the prophecy against Egypt recorded in Yashayah (Isaiah) Chapter 19 and Yachazaqaal (Ezekiel) Chapters 29 and 30, there are those who believe that the Aswan Dam (also called High Dam) of Egypt will be blown up with nuclear weapons in these last days and the land of Egypt will be flooded with waters, but what do The Scriptures say about this matter?

The Prophecy Against Egypt Part 1
Yashayah (Isaiah) 19:1-6

1 “The burden of Egypt. Behold, Yahuwah rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it. 2 And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom. 3 And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards. 4 And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel master; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Master, Yahuwah of hosts. 5 And the waters shall fail from the sea, and the river shall be wasted and dried up. 6 And they shall turn the rivers far away; and the brooks of defence shall be emptied and dried up: the reeds and flags shall wither.”

A Future Unfulfilled Prophecy
Yashayah (Isaiah) 19:18-22

18 “In that day shall five cities in the land of Egypt speak the language of Canaan, and swear to Yahuwah of hosts; one shall be called, The city of destruction. 19 In that day shall there be an altar to Yahuwah in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to Yahuwah. 20 And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto Yahuwah of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto Yahuwah because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them. 21 And Yahuwah shall be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know Yahuwah in that day, and shall do sacrifice and oblation; yea, they shall vow a vow unto Yahuwah, and perform it. 22 And Yahuwah shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it: and they shall return even to Yahuwah, and he shall be intreated of them, and shall heal them.”

We can understand that the prophecy in Yashayah (Isaiah) 19:5-6 about the rivers, brooks, and waters of Egypt being dried up and turned far away is a future prophecy that has not yet been fulfilled because it is scheduled to happen before Yahuwshuwah Mashyach (“a saviour and a great one”) will come and deliver them.

The River Nile
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nile

River Nile

“The Nile (Arabic: النيل, an-Nīl; Ancient Egyptian: Iteru & Ḥ’pī; Coptic Egyptian: P(h)iaro; Amharic: ?, ʿAbbai) is a major north-flowing river in northeastern Africa, generally regarded as the longest river in the world.[3] It is 6,650 km (4,130 miles) long. It runs through the ten countries of Sudan, South Sudan, Burundi, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda and Egypt.[4]”

“The Nile has two major tributaries, the White Nile and Blue Nile. The White Nile is longer and rises in the Great Lakes region of central Africa, with the most distant source still undetermined but located in either Rwanda or Burundi. It flows north through Tanzania, Lake Victoria, Uganda and South Sudan. The Blue Nile is the source of most of the water and fertile soil. It begins at Lake Tana in Ethiopia at 12°02′09″N 037°15′53″E and flows into Sudan from the southeast. The two rivers meet near the Sudanese capital of Khartoum.”

“The northern section of the river flows almost entirely through desert, from Sudan into Egypt, a country whose civilization has depended on the river since ancient times. Most of the population and cities of Egypt lie along those parts of the Nile valley north of Aswan, and nearly all the cultural and historical sites of Ancient Egypt are found along riverbanks. The Nile ends in a large delta that empties into the Mediterranean Sea.”

What Is A Tributary?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tributary

“A tributary[1] or affluent[2] is a stream or river that flows into a main stem (or parent) river or a lake.[3] A tributary does not flow directly into a sea or ocean. Tributaries and the main stem river serve to drain the surrounding drainage basin of its surface water and groundwater by leading the water out into an ocean or sea.”

“A confluence, where two or more bodies of water meet together, usually refers to the joining of tributaries.”

A tributary is the source a river gets its water from. The River Nile has two main tributaries: the White Nile and the Blue Nile.

What Is A Dam?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dam

“A dam is a barrier that impounds water or underground streams. Dams generally serve the primary purpose of retaining water, while other structures such as floodgates or levees (also known as dikes) are used to manage or prevent water flow into specific land regions. Hydropower and pumped-storage hydroelectricity are often used in conjunction with dams to generate electricity. A dam can also be used to collect water or for storage of water which can be evenly distributed between locations.”

“A spillway is a section of a dam designed to pass water from the upstream side of a dam to the downstream side. Many spillways have floodgates designed to control the flow through the spillway.”

Common Purposes Of Dams

Dams are built for the following purposes:

1. power generation
2. water supply
3. stabilize water flow/irrigation
4. flood prevention
5. land reclamation
6. water diversion
7. navigation
8. recreation and aquatic beauty

The Aswan Dam
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aswan_Dam

Aswan Dam (Panoramic View)

“The Aswan Dam is an embankment dam situated across the Nile River in Aswan, Egypt. Since the 1950s, the name commonly refers to the High Dam. Construction of the High Dam became a key objective of the Egyptian Government following the Egyptian Revolution of 1952, as the ability to control floods, provide water for irrigation, and generate hydroelectricity were seen as pivotal to Egypt’s industrialisation. The High Dam was constructed between 1960 and 1970, and has had a significant impact on the economy and culture of Egypt.”

“Before the dams were built, the Nile River flooded every year during late summer, when water flowed down the valley from its East African drainage basin. These floods brought high water and natural nutrients and minerals that annually enriched the fertile soil along the floodplain and delta; this had made the Nile valley ideal for farming since ancient times. Because floods vary, in high-water years the whole crop might be wiped out, while in low-water years widespread drought and famine occasionally occurred. As Egypt’s population grew and conditions changed, both a desire and ability developed to control the floods, and thus both protect and support farmland and the economically important cotton crop. With the reservoir storage provided by the Aswan dams, the floods could be lessened and the water stored for later release.”

The Blue Nile Dams: Ethiopia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dams_and_hydropower_in_Ethiopia

Blue Nile

“Ethiopia considers itself the powerhouse of Africa due to its high hydropower potential. Only a fraction of this potential has been harnessed so far. In 2009 less than 10% of Ethiopians had access to electricity and the country was plagued by power outages. In order to overcome this situation, the government has embarked on an ambitious dam building program. Three hydropower plants with a combined capacity of 1.18 GW were commissioned in 2009 and 2010 alone, more than doubling the previous installed capacity of the country. The largest hydroelectric plant in Ethiopia, Beles, began initial operation in May 2010. Contracts for five more large dams have been signed. Once completed, which is expected to be around 2015, these dams would increase the installed capacity by more than 11 GW from less than 1 GW in 2008.”

“The construction of more large dams is foreseen in a Master Plan that aims to bring capacity to 15 GW. While this increase is enormous, it is barely equivalent to the capacity of all power plants in Portugal. Power demand in Ethiopia is constrained by poverty, and the country thus plans to export power to Sudan, Kenya, Djibouti and even Yemen or Egypt. The benefits of the dams are not only limited to hydropower. Many dams are multi-purpose dams that are also designed to provide water for irrigation and flood control. However, hydropower is expected to be the main benefit of the dams.”

The White Nile Dam
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Nile
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jebel_Aulia_Dam

River Nile, Blue Nile and White Nile

“The White Nile (Arabic: النيل الأبيض‎ an nīl al ‘abyaḍ) is a river of Africa, one of the two main tributaries of the Nile from Egypt, the other being the Blue Nile. In the strict meaning, “White Nile” refers to the river formed at Lake No at the confluence of the Bahr al Jabal and Bahr el Ghazal Rivers. In the wider sense, “White Nile” refers to the approximately 3,700 kilometres (2,300 mi) of rivers draining from Lake Victoria into the White Nile proper. It may also, depending on the speaker, refer to the headwaters of Lake Victoria.”

“The Jebel Aulia Dam is a dam on the White Nile near the capital of Sudan, Khartoum.”

“In 2003, a hydro-electric project was completed on the dam, adding a 30 megawatt maximum capacity. As a result, the site became a site of significant national importance, and is now continually guarded by the Sudan People’s Armed Forces.”

The Red Sea Dam Proposal
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Sea_Dam

“The Red Sea dam is a speculative macro-engineering proposal put forward in 2007 by a group of scientists and engineers[1]. Although the authors’ intentions are to explore “the ethical and environmental dilemmas and some of the political implications of macro-engineering”, the proposal has attracted both criticism and ridicule.[2]”

“The idea is to dam the Red Sea at its southern end where the Bab-al-Mandab Strait is only 29 km (18 mi) wide. Natural evaporation would rapidly lower the level of the enclosed Red Sea. Water rushing back into the sea would then drive turbines to generate electricity. It is claimed that up to 50 gigawatts of electrical power could be generated, dwarfing all other power schemes worldwide.”

The Strait Of Gibraltar Dam Proposal
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strait_of_Gibraltar

“The Strait of Gibraltar (Arabic: مضيق جبل طارق, Spanish: Estrecho de Gibraltar) is a narrow strait that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea and separates Gibraltar and Spain in Europe from Morocco in Africa.”

“In the 1920s and 1930s, the Atlantropa project proposed damming the strait to generate large amounts of electricity and lower the sea level of the Mediterranean by several hundreds of meters to create large new lands for settlement.[20]”

What Is All This Talk About Dams?
The Waters Of Egypt Will Be Dried Up

The prophecy against Egypt reveals that the waterways to Egypt will be dried up. It does not say that Egypt will be punished with a massive flood which will cause it to be waste, desolate and uninhabitable.

All of the already completed dams, dams currently under construction, and proposed future dams have the potential to play a part in drying up and turning far away the waters, sea, rivers, and brooks of Egypt. A nuclear bomb strike against the Aswan Dam is not necessary to dry up the waterways of Egypt. All it requires is the control of these series of dams and a strategic manipulation of the current dams and this prophecy would be fulfilled. The dams that have been built and any future dams that will be built on the Niles that many see as a blessing could be used as a weapon to dry up the rivers of Egypt.

The prophecy is about Egypt being deprived of water rather than it being flooded with water.

A Perverse Spirit In Egypt
Yashayah (Isaiah) 19:11-15

11 “Surely the princes of Zoan are fools, the counsel of the wise counsellers of Pharaah (Pharaoh) is become brutish: how say ye unto Pharaah (Pharaoh), I am the son of the wise, the son of ancient kings? 12 Where are they? where are thy wise men? and let them tell thee now, and let them know what Yahuwah of hosts hath purposed upon Egypt. 13 The princes of Zoan are become fools, the princes of Noph are deceived; they have also seduced Egypt, even they that are the stay of the tribes thereof. 14 Yahuwah hath mingled a perverse spirit in the midst thereof: and they have caused Egypt to err in every work thereof, as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit. 15 Neither shall there be any work for Egypt, which the head or tail, branch or rush, may do. “

Why Will Egypt Be Punished?
Yashayah (Isaiah) 19:3

3 “And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards.”

Yahuwah reveals through the prophecy against Egypt that Egypt has the following abominations in their land:

1. idols
2. charmers (enchanters, necromancers)
3. familiar spirits
4. wizards (a knower, soothsayers)

Egypt consults with these entities instead of Yahuwah.

Who Are “They”?
Yashayah (Isaiah) 19:4-5

4 “And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel master; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Master, Yahuwah of hosts. 5 And the waters shall fail from the sea, and the river shall be wasted and dried up. 6 And they shall turn the rivers far away; and the brooks of defence shall be emptied and dried up: the reeds and flags shall wither.”

The prophecy against Egypt clearly states that the waterways will be dried up by a fierce king and cruel master and “they” that is with him. Yahuwah will not dry up the waters of Egypt by His miraculous power, but those who invade and rule over (control) Egypt will fulfill the prophecy.

I do not know if the wicked among mankind have plans to flood the land of Egypt. I do not know if this is possibly the reason why this false interpretation of the prophecy is circulating. What I do know is that the prophecy of Yahuwah points to the waterways of Egypt being dried up. When the people of Yahuwah see the waterways of Egypt dried up, this is when the prophecy of Yahuwah will be fulfilled. The dams of the Niles are an alternative method through which this can be achieved rather than blowing up the Aswan Dam.

Yashayah (Isaiah) 19:16-17

16 “In that day shall Egypt be like unto women: and it shall be afraid and fear because of the shaking of the hand of Yahuwah of hosts, which he shaketh over it. 17And the land of Yahuwdah (Judah) shall be a terror unto Egypt, every one that maketh mention thereof shall be afraid in himself, because of the counsel of Yahuwah of hosts, which he hath determined against it.”

The Land Of Yahuwdah A Terror

Some believe that the prophecy against Egypt will be fulfilled “after” Yahuwah returns the tribe of Yahuwdah back into the land of Yahuwdah because the prophecy mentions that the land of Yahuwdah will be a terror. The prophecy does not mention the actual bloodline tribe of Yahuwdah being already returned to the land. It simply says that the “land of Yahuwdah” will be a terror. In other words, whoever is currently living in the land of Yahuwdah at the time the prophecy is appointed to be fulfilled will be a terror to Egypt. The prophecy against Egypt will occur before Yahuwshuwah Mashyach returns to gather the true bloodline Yahsharahalites including Yahuwdah back into their land (Contrary to popular belief, this did not occur in 1948. The gathering and return of the people of Yahuwah will be a time of rest for the people of Yahuwah, and as of this current date, we still see war and unrest in the land of Yahuwdah.).

Pharaah/Pharaoh

Yahuwah addresses the king of Egypt as “Pharaah” in the prophecy against Egypt, but this does not necessarily mean that this king is a bloodline descendant of Pharaah (Pharaoh). The modern king of Egypt could be one of many in these last days who have assigned a name and title of blasphemy to themselves.

The Highway Of Peace
Yashayah (Isaiah) 19:18, 23-25

18 “In that day shall five cities in the land of Egypt speak the language of Canaan, and swear to Yahuwah of hosts; one shall be called, The city of destruction.”

23 “In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians. 24 In that day shall Yahsharahal be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land: 25 Whom Yahuwah of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Yahsharahal mine inheritance.”

The fact that this highway has not been built yet connecting Egypt to Assyria is further proof that Yashayah Chapter 19 is about an unfulfilled prophecy. These three nations will be at peace with one another in the future and will fellowship with one another in worship of Yahuwah.

The Prophecy Against Egypt Part 2
Yachazaqaal (Ezekiel) 29:1-3; 8-9

1 “In the tenth year, in the tenth month, in the twelfth day of the month, the word of Yahuwah came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, set thy face against Pharaah (Pharaoh) king of Egypt, and prophesy against him, and against all Egypt: 3 Speak, and say, Thus saith the Master Yahuwah; Behold, I am against thee, Pharaah (Pharaoh) king of Egypt, the great dragon that lieth in the midst of his rivers, which hath said, My river is mine own, and I have made it for myself.”

8 Therefore thus saith the Master Yahuwah; Behold, I will bring a sword upon thee, and cut off man and beast out of thee. 9 And the land of Egypt shall be desolate and waste; and they shall know that I am Yahuwah: because he hath said, The river is mine, and I have made it.

I Will Make The Rivers Dry

“Yachazaqaal (Ezekiel) 30:12 “And I will make the rivers dry, and sell the land into the hand of the wicked: and I will make the land waste, and all that is therein, by the hand of strangers: I Yahuwah have spoken it.”

In this prophecy, Yahuwah says that “He” will make the rivers of Egypt dry.

A Different Prophecy Against Egypt

There are those who believe that the prophecy against Egypt in Yachazaqaal (Ezekiel) Chapters 29 and 30 and Yashayah (Isaiah) Chapter 19 represent the same prophecy because they both mention a drying up of the rivers of Egypt. However, The Scriptures reveal that the prophecy against Egypt in Yachazaqaal (Ezekiel) has already been fulfilled.

Yahuwah Gave Nebuchadrezzar Egypt
Yachazaqaal (Ezekiel) 29:17-20

17 “And it came to pass in the seven and twentieth year, in the first month, in the first day of the month, the word of Yahuwah came unto me, saying, 18 Son of man, Nebuchadrezzar king of Babal (Babylon) caused his army to serve a great service against Tyrus: every head was made bald, and every shoulder was peeled: yet had he no wages, nor his army, for Tyrus, for the service that he had served against it: 19 Therefore thus saith the Master Yahuwah; Behold, I will give the land of Egypt unto Nebuchadrezzar king of Babal (Babylon); and he shall take her multitude, and take her spoil, and take her prey; and it shall be the wages for his army. 20 I have given him the land of Egypt for his labour wherewith he served against it, because they wrought for me, saith the Master Yahuwah.”

The Glory Of Egypt Ceased
Yachazaqaal (Ezekiel) 30:10-13

10 “Thus saith the Master Yahuwah; I will also make the multitude of Egypt to cease by the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon. 11 He and his people with him, the terrible of the nations, shall be brought to destroy the land: and they shall draw their swords against Egypt, and fill the land with the slain. 12 And I will make the rivers dry, and sell the land into the hand of the wicked: and I will make the land waste, and all that is therein, by the hand of strangers: I Yahuwah have spoken it. 13 Thus saith the Master Yahuwah; I will also destroy the idols, and I will cause their images to cease out of Noph; and there shall be no more a prince of the land of Egypt: and I will put a fear in the land of Egypt.”

Yahuwah paid Nebuchadrezzar king of Babal (Babylon) in wages with the land of Egypt and around the time Nebuchadrezzar conquered Egypt, Yahuwah caused the rivers to dry.

The Last Pharaah (Pharaoh)
Yaramayah (Jeremiah) 44:30

30 “Thus saith Yahuwah; Behold, I will give Pharaah-hophra king of Egypt into the hand of his enemies, and into the hand of them that seek his life; as I gave Zadakayah (Zedekiah) king of Yahuwdah into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babal (Babylon), his enemy, and that sought his life.”

Pharaah-hophra was the last bloodline king of Egypt to rule Egypt. Yahuwah says there would no more be a prince (male heir to the throne) of Pharaah. Yahuwah destroyed Pharaah by the hand of Nebuchadrezzar. Nebuchadrezzar spoiled Egypt of her treasures. It appears the only thing they did not spoil are the tombs of the dead because the kings of the north have the treasures of the dead in their museums in our modern times. Nebuchadrezzar reigned around 605 BC through 562 BC.

Egypt Was Desolate And Waste For Forty Years
Yachazaqaal (Ezekiel) 29:8-12

8 “Therefore thus saith the Master Yahuwah; Behold, I will bring a sword upon thee, and cut off man and beast out of thee. 9 And the land of Egypt shall be desolate and waste; and they shall know that I am Yahuwah: because he hath said, The river is mine, and I have made it. 10 Behold, therefore I am against thee, and against thy rivers, and I will make the land of Egypt utterly waste and desolate, from the tower of Syene even unto the border of Ethiopia. 11 No foot of man shall pass through it, nor foot of beast shall pass through it, neither shall it be inhabited forty years. 12 And I will make the land of Egypt desolate in the midst of the countries that are desolate, and her cities among the cities that are laid waste shall be desolate forty years: and I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will disperse them through the countries.”

The forty year count began after Nebuchadrezzar conquered Egypt.

Egypt Became The Basest Of Kingdoms
Yachazaqaal (Ezekiel) 29:13-16

13 “Yet thus saith the Master Yahuwah; At the end of forty years will I gather the Egyptians from the people whither they were scattered: 14 And I will bring again the captivity of Egypt, and will cause them to return into the land of Pathros, into the land of their habitation; and they shall be there a base kingdom. 15 It shall be the basest of the kingdoms; neither shall it exalt itself any more above the nations: for I will diminish them, that they shall no more rule over the nations. 16 And it shall be no more the confidence of the house of Yahsharahal, which bringeth their iniquity to remembrance, when they shall look after them: but they shall know that I am the Master Yahuwah.”

Yahuwah reveals that at some time in the past during the reign of Nebuchadrezzar the land of Egypt had the following features:

1. Egypt was desolate and waste for forty years
2. the Egyptians were dispersed into all the nations as slaves for forty years
3. no man or beast passed through or inhabited Egypt for forty years

Egypt suffered the same punishment as Yahuwdah and Yahruwshalaam except the captivity of Yahuwdah lasted seventy years under Nebuchadrezzer. After the forty year punishment of Egypt, Yahuwah gathered the Egyptians from out of slavery and placed them back in Egypt where they then became the basest of kingdoms. The glory and rule of the Pharaahs (Pharaohs) and Egypt ceased at that time.

Yahuwah Will Gather His People Out Of Egypt
Yashayah (Isaiah) 11:10-12

10 “And in that day there shall be a root of Yashay (Jesse), which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. 11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Master shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. 12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Yahsharahal, and gather together the dispersed of Yahuwdah from the four corners of the earth.”

This end time prophecy states that Yahuwah will gather the remnant of His people from out of Egypt, therefore, Egypt will be inhabited with people at the time of the return of Yahuwshuwah.

They Will Dry Up The Waterways Of Egypt

If the fierce and cruel king and “they” who will be with him decide to flood the land of Egypt, it will not fulfill the future prophecy of Yahuwah in Yashayah (Isaiah) Chapter 19. The prophecy of Yahuwah states that at some time in the future but “before” Yahuwshuwah returns to gather his people, the waterways of Egypt will be dried up. When The Scriptures prophesy that they will turn the rivers of Egypt far away, it means that they will divert the waters of Egypt which is one of the functions and purposes of building a dam. The dams can be used to caused the rivers of Egypt to dry up.

Mystery Economic Babylon [YAHUWAH]

As information is revealed to me through study of The Scriptures and personal research, I always feel motivated and compelled to share the information with you. The information provided in this presentation is short, but I found it most astounding.

The Word “Babylon”
Strong’s H894 Babal
(Blue Letter Bible definition)

“Babel or Babylon = “confusion (by mixing)”

1) Babel or Babylon, the ancient site and/or capital of Babylonia (modern Hillah) situated on the Euphrates”

The Abary language translation of the letters “bet-bet-lamed” is b-b-l which yields the word Babal. Babel and Babylon are both English forms.

Borough Block and Lot

“In New York City, each address is also identified by a Borough, Block, and Lot (BBL).[1]”

In a nutshell, a BBL is what land, property, and real estate is called in New York City. BBL is an acronym for Borough Block and Lot.

Composition Of A BBL

“A BBL consists of three numbers separated by slashes.

The first number identifies what borough the property is in.

1 = Manhattan
2 = Bronx
3 = Brooklyn
4 = Queens
5 = Staten Island

The Block number is second and can be up to 5 digits.

The Lot number is last and can be up to 4 digits.

An example for a property in Queens would be: 4/99999/99”

B-B-L

In the Abary language BBL translates to BaBaL.

The land of New York City has the name of Babal named on it.

An Economic Whore

Once again, I want to emphasize the possibility that Mystery Babal a.k.a. Mystery Babylon could be a reference to an Economic Whore who is making the merchants (corporations) of the earth rich rather than a Religious Whore because the evidence against New York City is piling up to the brim. Watch!

Take Heed!

The Blasphemy Of Making A Name [YAHUWAH]

The Voice Of Yahuwshuwah
Yohn (John) 10:4-5

4 “And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. 5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.”

Yahuwshuwah has gone on and is seated at the right hand of Yahuwah, but Yahuwshuwah says that his voice is still here in the world and when his sheep hears his voice, they will follow him. The true sheep will flee from the voice of strangers.

The voice of Yahuwshuwah is the word he brought from Yahuwah to share with the mankind. The voice of Yahuwshuwah can be found in The Scriptures. This is the mode through which Yahuwshuwah speaks to his people.

The Words Came From The Father

Yohn (John) 12:49 “For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.”

Yohn (John) 14:10 “Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.”

Every word Yahuwshuwah spoke was taught to him straight from the mouth of Yahuwah. If we want to know what Yahuwah requires of us, we need to make sure we go to the source who brought the word of Yahuwah and follow him. The apostles, disciples, pastor, ministers, and teachers must bring the same message as the first Shepherd. The sheep have the responsibility to verify the words of any leader through The Scriptures.

The Protestant Reformation
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protestant_Reformation

“The Reformation began as an attempt to reform the Roman Catholic Church, by priests who opposed what they perceived as false doctrines and ecclesiastic malpractice—especially the teaching and the sale of indulgences or the abuses thereof, and simony, the selling and buying of clerical offices—that the reformers saw as evidence of the systemic corruption of the Church’s Roman hierarchy, which included the Pope.[3]”

“The Protestant Reformation began on 31 October 1517, in Wittenberg, Saxony, where Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-Five Theses on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences to the door of the Castle Church, in Wittenberg.[5] The theses debated and criticized the Church and the Pope, but concentrated upon the selling of indulgences and doctrinal policies about purgatory, particular judgment, Catholic devotion to Mary, “The Mother of God”, the intercession of and devotion to the saints, most of the sacraments, the mandatory clerical celibacy, including monasticism, and the authority of the Pope.”

The Protestants Began To Study The Scriptures

The Protestants became aware of the following concepts through personal study:

1. the Berean doctrine of examining the words of those who claim to be representatives of Yahuwah (Acts 17:11)

2. each of us is responsible for working out our own salvation through personal study of the word of Yahuwah (Philippians 2:12)

3. the Holy Spirit has the ability to directly teach a person the meaning of the word of Yahuwah (Yohn/John 14:26)

4. the Mediator and Advocate between Yahuwah and the mankind is Yahuwshuwah (1 Timothy 2:5)

Yahuwshuwah Is The Word
Yohn (John) 1:1-4

1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Alahayam, and the Word was Alahayam. 2 The same was in the beginning with Alahayam. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Yohn (John) 1:14

14 “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

Yahuwshuwah Came In The Name Of The Father

Yohn (John) 5:43 “I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.”

Yahuwshuwah did not come to the earth bearing his own name. The name of his Father was named on him after he was born into a flesh and blood body. Yahuwshuwah had his own name, but The Scriptures reveal that his heavenly name did not have the name of Yahuwah, Yahuw, or Yah in it.

The Word

Yahuwshuwah’s name was “Word” or “The Word.”

There are two words in the Abary language that are translated in reference to the “word of Yahuwah” as follows:

Amar H561/H562 and Amary
Amary-al translates to “Word of Alahayam”

Dabar H1697 and Dabary
Dabary-al translates to “Word of Alahayam”

Etymology Of The Word “America”
http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?allowed_in_frame=0&search=america&searchmode=none

“1507, in Cartographer Martin Waldseemüller’s treatise “Cosmographiae Introductio,” from Mod.L. Americanus, after Amerigo Vespucci (1454-1512) who made two trips to the New World as a navigator and claimed to have discovered it. His published works put forward the idea that it was a new continent, and he was first to call it Novus Mundus “New World.” Amerigo is more easily Latinized than Vespucci. The name Amerigo is Germanic, said to derive from Goth. Amalrich, lit. “work-ruler.” The Old English form of the name has come down as surnames Emmerich, Emery, etc. The Italian fem. form merged into Amelia. Colloquial pronunciation “Ameri-kay,” not uncommon 19c., goes back to at least 1643 and a poem that rhymed the word with away. Amerika “U.S. society viewed as racist, fascist, oppressive, etc.” first attested 1969; the spelling is German, but may also suggest the KKK.”

This is a secular etymology of what the word “America” means, but let’s take a look at a scriptural etymology.

American Is Similar To Amarykan

Both the words “amar” and “dabar” are translated as “word”, but the word “amar” and “amary” sounds very much like the “ameri” in the word american.”

Abary letters have meaning. The letter “nun” (N) placed at the end of an Abary name means “kingdom.”

From an Abary language perspective, the word “american” means “Kingdom of The Word.”

A Kingdom With Names Of Blasphemy

Revelation 2:9 “I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Yahuwdy (Jews), and are not, but are the synagogue of Shatan (Satan).”

Revelation 13:1 “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.”

Revelation 17:3 “So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.”

The kingdom of The Beast reeks with names of blasphemy.

What Is A Name Of Blasphemy?

The Scriptures reveal that the nations of The Beast has names of blasphemy.

A name of blasphemy is a name a person, nation, or organization calls itself that it does not deserve to be called (especially holy names or holy character) or a name that is a falsehood. For instance, if a woman’s name is Chastity, but she is a prostitute, she does not deserve a name that represents “chaste.” If a man’s name is Justin, but he is a cheat, he does not deserve a name that represents “justice.”

Therefore, know this, “if” America is not serving Yahuwah, it has a name that reflects the name of the Son of Yahuwah who is called The Word as part of its name and Yohn who recorded the words of the Book of Revelation would consider the name “America(n)” a name of blasphemy because this would make America The Word on earth instead of Yahuwshuwah.

American And British Israelism
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Israelism

“British Israelism (also called Anglo-Israelism) is the belief that people of Western European descent, particularly those in Great Britain, are the direct lineal descendants of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. The concept often includes the belief that the British Royal Family is directly descended from the line of King David.[1][2] There has never been a single head or organisational structure to the movement. However, various British Israelite organisations were set up across the British Commonwealth and in America from the 1870s, and many continue to exist.[3]”

“Adherents may hold a diverse set of beliefs and claims that are ancillary to the core genealogical theory, but there are central tenets that all British Israelites follow, including Two House Theology, which is at the core of British Israelism.[4] A central teaching of the British Israelites’ Two House Theology is that, while Jews are considered to be Israelites, not all Israelites are considered to be Jews.[5] British Israelites believe that Jews descend only from the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, while the House of Israel gave rise to the British people or Anglo-Saxon-Celtic kindred peoples of northwestern Europe.[6][7][8]”

The Abary Word For Covenant Is B’ryt

The Abary word b’ryth or b’ryt means covenant. The letter “taw” has the sound of “t” as in “table.” The word “bryt” sounds very much like our modern word “brit” as in “british”, “briton” or “britain.” “If” Britain is not serving Yahuwah, it has a name of blasphemy because this name reflects that they are in a covenant with Yahuwah to keep His laws and that they are the people that Yahuwah made a covenant with in ancient times, and Yohn who recorded the words of the Book of Revelation would consider the names “Brit”, “British”, “Briton”, and “Britain” to be names of blasphemy because these names represent that nation as the covenant people on earth instead of the Trans-Atlantic slaves.

Bryt means covenant
Ish means man (Strong’s H376)

In the Abary language “british” means “people of the covenant” or “man of the covenant.”

The Descendants Of Yaphath
Yashar (Jasher) 10:7, 9, 18

7 “And these are the sons of Yaphath (Japheth) according to their families, Gomer, Magog, Medai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech and Tiras; these are the children of Japheth according to their generations.”

9 “And the children of Rephath are the Bartonim, who dwell in the land of Bartonia by the river Ledah, which empties its waters in the great sea Gihon, that is, oceanus.”

18 “These are the families of the children of Japheth according to their cities and languages, when they were scattered after the tower, and they called their cities after their names and occurrences; and these are the names of all their cities according to their families, which they built in those days after the tower.”

The Bartonim/Bartonia

I have mentioned before that as a black person, I was the member of a church that taught United States and British Israelism. They taught that some of the Caucasian nations are the true scriptural Israelites as they call them and the descendants of Sham/Shem and Abaraham,. However, in the Book of Yashar (Jasher) which has a more detailed genealogical record, we can see that in the genealogy of Yaphath (Japheth), there is a tribe listed with b-r-t-o-n as letters of their name, but they are Yaphathites and not from Sham/Shem. The tribe is called Bartonim/Bartonia, Bartonim/Bartonia are not the people of the covenant that. This is an alternative way the Yaphathites called “British/Briton” may have acquired their name.

Let’s Make A Name
Genesis 11:1-4

1 “And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. 3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. 4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.”

Making, changing, or establishing a name for ones self is not from Yahuwah. Yahuwah stopped the people from making a name for themselves by confusing the language at Babal (Babel/Babylon). We have returned to the ways of Babylon because there are many people engaged in this practice of making a name for themselves.

Confirmation Names
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation#Confirmation_name

“In many English-speaking and other countries, it is customary for a person being confirmed in the Roman Catholic Church (and some Anglican dioceses) to adopt a new name, generally the name of a saint, thus securing an additional patron saint as protector and guide. This practice is unknown in many other countries (including the Spanish- and French-speaking lands, and in Italy), and is not mentioned in the official liturgical book of the Rite of Confirmation. Although some insist on the custom,[28] it is discouraged by others and in any case is only a secondary aspect of confirmation.[29]”

“As indicated by the different senses of the word “christening”, baptism and the giving of a personal name have traditionally been linked. At confirmation, in which the intervention of a godparent strengthens a resemblance with baptism, it became customary to take a new name, as was also the custom on other occasions, in particular that of religious profession. King Henry III of France (1551–1589) was christened Edouard Alexandre in 1551, but at confirmation received the name Henri, by which he afterwards reigned. Today usually no great use is made of the confirmation name, although some treat it as a new middle name. However, even after the English Reformation, the legal system of that country admitted the lawfulness of using one’s confirmation name in, for instance, purchasing land.[30]”

Muslim Names

“A convert to Islam is not obliged to change their name to a muslim name. However, if the non-muslim name has a meaning that is against Islam then selecting a new name would be advisable.” (source:http://www.convertstoislam.com/NewName/newname.html)

The Name “X”

“In 1950 Little began signing his name “Malcolm X”,[43] explaining in his autobiography, “The Muslim’s ‘X’ symbolized the true African family name that he never could know. For me, my ‘X’ replaced the white slavemaster name of ‘Little’ which some blue-eyed devil named Little had imposed upon my paternal forebears.”[44]” (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malcolm_X)

Malcolm X And Shabazz

“Malcolm X used the surname Shabazz from 1949 because he believed himself to be a descendant of the tribe.[1] Members of his family have also used the name, which has also been adopted by other persons.”

“The name may be related to the Arabic words شعب sha‘b ‘a people’, and عز ‘azz ‘to be mighty or glorious’.”

“Roots”: The Slave Name “Toby”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roots_%28TV_miniseries%29

“Roots is an American television miniseries based on Alex Haley’s novel Roots: The Saga of an American Family, which aired on ABC in 1977.”

“The series introduced LeVar Burton in the role of Kunta Kinte.”

After the slaves were captured: “The ship lands months later in Annapolis, Maryland, where the captured Africans are sold at auction as slaves. Kunta Kinte is sold to plantation owner John Reynolds and is given the slave name of “Toby.” An older slave named Fiddler is charged with teaching Kunta the ways of being a chattel slave, including learning English. In a desperate struggle to be free and to preserve his Mandinka heritage, he makes several unsuccessful attempts to escape. Kunta doesn’t want to give up his Mandinka roots and is reluctant to change his name to “Toby”. An overseer named Ames (Vic Morrow) has Kunta Kinte severely whipped, until he submits to his slave name.”

The Names Of Slaves

There are those who teach that black people in the Americas should change what they call “their slave names” that the white man has given them, but if the Yahsharahalites were to truly examine their names from a scriptural perspective they may find that the name they bear has an Abary language meaning. Do not be surprised if the name some call white man names have Abary meanings which were intended for the Yahsharahalites to receive during this time of slavery. In the movie entitled “Roots”, the slave, Kunta Kinte, was offended by the name change to “Toby,” but there is an Abary name of Tobyah (Strong’s H2900) which means “goodness of Yahuwah” or “Yahuwah is good”. The names that the Trans-Atlantic slaves ended up with could be a coincidence, but the names given by the slave owners also could be deliberate from Yahuwah. In other words, the Abary names were given back to the Abary people through this method. If we deserve a new name change, we will receive one from Yahuwah. In the meantime, the name we received at birth is the name our mother and father named us and not the white man.

My mother told me that she named my first and middle name after two different Caucasian celebrities, but the names she named me are both based upon scriptural names. Keep in mind also that The Scriptures speak of some names already being written in the Book of Life. Will Yahuwah change the name in The Book of Life to what we want to be called by. Is the birth name written in the Book of Life or under the name we want to be called? We should let Yahuwah determine if we deserve a new name and what that new name will be because Yahuwah is angry about the names of blasphemy and we do not want to risk giving ourselves a name we do not deserve. This is exactly what the people did at Babal (Babel/Babylon). They wanted to make a name for themselves. We need to exalt the name of Yahuwah and Yahuwshuwah. With the exception of wives who take on the surnames of their husbands, neither the bloodline Yahsharahalites nor the grafted in Yahsharahalites (converted Gentiles) should make a name for themselves.

Examples Of Birth Names With Matching Abary Names

We need to open our eyes to the truth in the birth names (first, middle, and surname) given to us because there may be an Abary counterpart or meaning in them:

Louis, Lou, Louise = Luwy or Luwyite (Levite)
Joe, Joey, Joan = Yuwsaph (Joseph)
Ben, Benny, Benita = (Banyamite/Benjamite) (son)
Dave or David = Duwad (beloved)
Derrick = Derek/Darak (way or the way/tread)
Jake or Jackie = Yaaqob (Jacob)
Harry or Harold = Hary (of the mountain)
Betty = Baty (of a daughter)
Mary = Marayam (rebellion)
M. L. K. = MaLaK (king) (Martin Luther King’s initials)

The people of Yahuwah should not be ashamed of the birth name.

A New Name Is Promised
Revelation 2:17

17 “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.”

The people of Yahuwah need to avoid participating in making a name for themselves and wait to receive a new name from Yahuwah and Yahuwshuwah.

Yahuwshuwah Came In The Name Of Yahuwah

Yohn (John) 5:43 “I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.”

Yohn (John) 10:25 “Yahuwshuwah answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me.”

Yahuwshuwah did not exalt his heavenly name, Word of Alahayam, while on the earth. He came in the name of his Father. The people of Yahuwah are instructed to come in the name of and praise the name of Yahuwah and Yahuwshuwah.

Take Heed!
