Translation of Proverbs Chapter 4

1 His hearing, children [sons or their sons], instruction [bond] father [consent, desire] and his response to knowledge (is) understanding. 2 Because learn [take] good I did give their walk my law to/not you did leave him. 3 Because son I did exist to my father’s loin [tender] and he did unite [riddle] to face my mother. 4 And he did shouted with joy, and he said to me “he…

Feast of First Fruits

This observance was specifically given because Israel would enter into the land which was given to them by God. (Leviticus 23:10) On the surface, when reading the Hebrew, it’s very practical in nature. Contrarily, English makes it sound like some strange ritual. Ultimately, Yahuwah gives Israel step by step instructions for reaping and celebrating their first harvest in the promised land annually. They are told when and how to process the…

Feast of Unleavened Bread

January 8, 2018

Closely tied to the Passover, the Feast of Unleavened Bread is a seven-day observance. According to Exodus 12:18, it begins on the evening of the 14th day of the first month, meaning it occurs concurrently with Passover. However, Leviticus 23:5 says that it begins on the 15th day of the first month. Due to this, some people recognize the feast beginning on the Passover and others as beginning on the…


Pesach: The Passover

January 3, 2018

The Passover was first practiced just before the Exodus of God’s people out of Egypt. For practical reasons Yahuwah, through Moses, ordered the Israelites to get dressed and ready to run and to eat quickly, because it was Yahuwah’s Passover. (Exodus 12:11) During this event, Passover lambs were slaughtered to be eaten and their blood was spread on the doorposts of all who heeded Yahuwah’s warning. Interestingly, the Passover was…


Reshown Chadesh: The First Month/New Year

January 1, 2018

While not technically a feast day, it is a commandment for Israel to observe the month of Abib as the first month of the year. This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. – Exodus 12:2 And Moses said unto the people, remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of…


Sabbath: The Seventh Day

December 30, 2017

The most widely known holyday occurs once per week all year round and that is the Sabbath or the seventh day which is a day of rest.  Keeping this day is most clearly stated in the 10 commandments. Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall…


Should We Keep the Holy Days of the Bible?

Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.  ~ Colossians 2:16-17 This verse is probably the number one most cited verses in the New Testament used by people who are anti-obedience to prove that the laws and…

A Synopsis of the Gospel of John

December 28, 2017

If you’ve studied the Four Gospels, you may have noticed that each of the Gospels’ writers has a different focus. I have only read Matthew and John in my new state of mind! What I mean is that I am sure I’ve read them all, but before a year or two ago, I was reading with blind eyes. I was reading to read and not studying the word. Now that…


The Mysterious New Testament Jews

December 25, 2017

I previously did a study and an article about the identity of the New Testament Pharisees. By the end of my study, I realized that, indeed, being a Pharisee or Sadducee had little or nothing to do with being an Israelite. Rather these political-religious titles were held for the elite who lived in Jerusalem and ruled the people of that region under the shared governing authority allowed to them by…


King Solomon & His Wisdom…

December 11, 2017

Most of us know King Solomon as one of the wisest men to have ever lived. In my opinion, no wisdom has outdone that of Solomon’s to date, except Yahushua’s of course. One only needs to read his wise sayings and instruction in Hebrew to realize the expanse of Solomon’s wisdom. I came to know our once great, yet fallen, king when I began to seek wisdom and correction for…
