I had a dream: I was in a large room and many gathered to have discussions. I wanted to read Hosea for everyone (I can’t remember if it was chapter 3, 6 or 12, but I do believe it was 6). Nevertheless, I was going to read from my phone, and the Cepher app I usually use wouldn’t work. I then asked if I could use someone else’s phone and would be happy to read from any version, KJV or anything! Everyone tried to let me use their phone but no one’s phone would work anymore (at least for scriptures). For whatever reason, none of us were prepared with hard copies of the scriptures and therefore we could not read them.
I believe the warning is telling us we may not be able to use technology soon for our studies, perhaps even on YouTube any longer (good time to take note of your frequent Youtube ministry alternative sites). It’s time to make sure we are prepared with physical copies of the scriptures, perhaps even multiple copies, as the times ahead may prove to be a perfect time to share the Truth with others. I want to share a list of books that I would recommend:
- The Cepher
- If I had to pick ‘one’ book that I believe stands out above the rest, it’s the Cepher. Not only does it have the set-apart and restored Hebrew names, but many of the hidden books that are a must have. The 14 books of the apocrypha that once were within the cannon, books from the Dead Sea Scrolls collection and more.
- The only downside: it’s a bit pricey, however, I do believe you get what you pay for. Quite frankly, I don’t know of anything better you can buy for $100 these days.
- The HalleluYah Scriptures
- A great alternative to the Cepher and some even prefer these to the Cepher. They are donation based, so the cost can be low.
- They also have most of the books the Cepher include, but on an individual basis.
- I received word that they are considering having an ‘all in one’ type of book like the Cepher in the near future.
- If you are very low on funds, email me and I can send you a copy free of charge, as the HalleluYah team has sent me boxes of these books to share.
- The HalleluYah scripture team reached out to me, looking to send their books worldwide. (contact them)
- New Torah Book (New to Torah)
- The Brenton Septuagint (With Apocrypha)
- The Septuagint is roughly 1100 years older than the Masoretic text (masoreti is the KJV, Cepher etc…)
- Many hidden nuggets of truth when comparing the Septuagint and Masoretic
- The Targums (Torah)
- The Targums are the Aramaic translation of the scriptures and some believe these to be from the time of Ezra and the return from Babylon, regardless of what Wikipedia and commentators of old have said.
- While the Targums are still in the ‘testing phase’ with me, I would recommend this for anyone seeking the Truth.
- Dollar Tree KJV bibles
- Even though we know the KJV has its faults, let’s be honest, for $1, there is nothing better for the money.
- This will be such a great way to share truth with others when times get tough.
- The Dead Sea Scrolls
- An English translation of the scrolls found within the caves of Qumran.
- Not all books found here are good for doctrine (warning)
- You can find this for sale online in many places, here is a list of used ones for sale https://www.alibris.com/search/books/isbn/9780060766627utm_source=Google?utm_medium=affiliate&utm_source=lbHlpxiEbDY&utm_campaign=10&siteID=lbHlpxiEbDY-9RyF74tzkDW_keUoRrHZuQ
- Cepher’s ‘Other Books’
- Shamayim – Apocalypse of Peter, Apocalypse of Moses, Ascension of Isaiah & more
- Ha’Avoth – Collection of the early Ekklesia writings (Clement, Polycarp etc…)
- Bere’Shyth – 1st Adam and Eve, Testament of Moshe, Apocalypse of Abraham, Testament of the 12 Patriarchs & more

2 Esdras 16:74-78
74 “Hear, my elect,” says YAHUAH. “Behold, the days of tribulation are at hand, and I will deliver you from them. 75 Do not fear or doubt, for ELOHIM is your guide. 76 You who keep my commandments and precepts,” says YAHUAH ELOHIM, “do not let your sins pull you down, or your iniquities prevail over you.” 77 Woe to those who are choked by their sins and overwhelmed by their iniquities, as a field is choked with underbrush and its path overwhelmed with thorns, so that no one can pass through! 78 It is shut off and given up to be consumed by fire.
