You know that old saying, history repeats itself? When it comes to the Word of Elohim, there’s no exception.
“What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done; and there is nothing new under the sun.”
There are several stories found within the Word of Elohim that will equip us mightily for the days ahead. Most of these stories were not included in the 66 book canon. Nevertheless, these books were kept hidden for the end-times generation to study, our time, right now. So, today, we will learn from the lessons of the Past, to gain knowledge for today, and our quickly changing future.
Remember, we don’t wrestle against flesh and blood, but with spiritual wickedness in high places. These entities have been at war with Elohim and man for thousands of years. While they made an unintelligent choice to rebel against our Heavenly Father, they are not senseless when it comes to deception. These fallen ones have had generations to enslave the minds of the people.
Nevertheless, we have the benefit of living in a time of massive information availability. We also serve the Elohim of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, he will never give us a scenario we cannot handle, nor escape from!
“But you, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased”
We have the written Word that includes ancient stories about the men and women of Elohim, who were put to the test and overcame the wicked ones. These stories can surely serve as an example for us in our generation. Paul correlated the exodus and wilderness experience, as a lesson for all.
“Now these things happened to them as a warning, but they were written down for our instruction, upon whom the end of the ages has come.”
1 Corinthians 10:11
The Days Ahead
Unless you’ve completely secluded yourself from society and the internet, then you can easily see our world is rapidly changing. How long until a totalitarian rule envelops the world? Only Yahuah knows. What I do know is this; we can learn from our ancestors, and prepare for what’s coming.
Lessons From The Past – Knowledge For Our Future
“And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems upon its horns and a blasphemous name upon its heads. And the beast that I saw was like a leopard, its feet were like a bear’s, and its mouth was like a lion’s mouth. And to it the dragon gave his power and his throne and great authority. One of its heads seemed to have a mortal wound, but its mortal wound was healed, and the whole earth followed the beast with wonder. Men worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?”
Past, present and future; it will always be about worship. The Devil wants to be like the Most High, so he wants the worship. The world will and already is worshiping the Devil by listening to him, instead of The Most High.
We have dedicated much study to the identity of the Beast of Revelation. We have concluded that the Pagan Roman Kingdom, which formed into the Papal Roman Kingdom, is the 4th Beast that rules until the return of Messiah Yahusha.
Keeping in mind that the “Dragon gave power unto the Beast”, if one were to follow its ways, they are inherently following the Devil (even if their intentions are pure). For example, Yahuah said to keep the 7th day ‘Holy’, whereas the Catholic Church has changed that day to Sunday. If this is new to you, I’d highly recommend this short (22 min) study: “Unlocked: The Beast of Revelation“.
Let us consider for a moment, that the Devil has most of humanity completely blinded and in his hand. Here’s the facts; it doesn’t matter if someone is Buddhist, or Atheist or any false religion. If you’re not serving Yahuah the way he commanded it, you’re in rebellion and serve the Beast (lawlessness). Even modern-day Protestantism has the evil tentacles of the Papacy all over it — notably Sunday worship in favor of the Sabbath day (Saturday), alongside christmans and easter, in lieu of Yah’s 7 Feast days. For more information on this, see the study linked in the previous paragraph.
The truth is, the Devil isn’t interested in focusing his efforts on the ones he already has in his pocket, he’s coming after the people who actually serve the Most High Elohim. The called out ones. Let’s take a tour through history, to prepare us for the days ahead. We will be reading from books you may or may not have heard about previously. No surprise, as these books contain key information for our time now, and preparation.
“So during the forty days ninety-four books were written. And when the forty days were ended, the Most High spoke to me, saying, “Make public the twenty-four books that you wrote first and let the worthy and the unworthy read them; but keep the seventy that were written last, in order to give them to the wise among your people. For in them is the spring of understanding, the fountain of wisdom, and the river of knowledge.”
2 Esdras 14:44-47
– This is the restoration of the scriptures that were destroyed by the Babylonian army. As Yahuah himself said, some books are for anyone to read, and some for the wise only.
The Book of Maccabees (included in the 1611 KJV)
This is how things went down in times past:
“After Alexander son of Philip, the Macedo′nian, who came from the land of Kittim, had defeated Darius, king of the Persians and the Medes, he succeeded him as king. (He had previously become king of Greece.) He fought many battles, conquered strongholds, and put to death the kings of the earth. He advanced to the ends of the earth, and plundered many nations. When the earth became quiet before him, he was exalted, and his heart was lifted up. He gathered a very strong army and ruled over countries, nations, and princes, and they became tributary to him. After this he fell sick and perceived that he was dying.
1 Maccabees 1:1-5
“So he summoned his most honored officers, who had been brought up with him from youth, and divided his kingdom among them while he was still alive. And after Alexander had reigned twelve years, he died. Then his officers began to rule, each in his own place. They all put on crowns after his death, and so did their sons after them for many years; and they caused many evils on the earth.
1 Maccabees 1:6-9
“From them came forth a sinful root, Anti′ochus Epiph′anes, son of Anti′ochus the king; he had been a hostage in Rome. He began to reign in the one hundred and thirty-seventh year of the kingdom of the Greeks. In those days lawless men came forth from Israel, and misled many, saying, “Let us go and make a covenant with the Gentiles round about us, for since we separated from them many evils have come upon us.” This proposal pleased them, and some of the people eagerly went to the king. He authorized them to observe the ordinances of the Gentiles. So they built a gymnasium in Jerusalem, according to Gentile custom, and removed the marks of circumcision, and abandoned the holy covenant. They joined with the Gentiles and sold themselves to do evil.
1 Maccabees 1:10-15
– This part has already infiltrated the faith. This began once again, nearly 2,000 years ago. Shortly after the death of our Messiah and his Apostles, the 4th Beast, the Roman Empire ‘stole’ the faith and ruled the earth. The true believers were martyred and Truth (Psalm 119:142) was hidden.
“And after these things a fourth kingdom will arise, whose power will be harsh and evil far beyond those which were before it, and it will rule many times as the forests on the plain, and it will hold fast for times, and will exalt itself more than the cedars of Lebanon. And by it the Truth will be hidden, and all those who are polluted with iniquity will flee to it, as evil beasts flee and creep into the forest.
2 Baruch 39:5-6
“Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven. And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land. And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground (who are the stars of heaven?), and stamped upon them. Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of the sanctuary was cast down. And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practiced, and prospered.
Enoch 43, a quick glance at the identity of the ‘stars of heaven’
The Truth (the Torah) was hunted and rooted out of ‘the faith’. Sabbath keepers were tortured and destroyed, leaving behind a fearful people, who turned to do the will of the Beast. The pure faith was lost, and apostasy had taken center stage, and has remained until this very day.
“8. And after that in the sixth week all who live in it shall be blinded,
And the hearts of all of them shall godlessly forsake wisdom.
- The time of the Pharisees, Saducees and the blinding of Israel
And in it a man shall ascend;
And at its close the house of dominion shall be burnt with fire,
And the whole race of the chosen root shall be dispersed.
- Messiah Yahusha ascends and the temple and Jerusalem is destroyed — Judah is dispersed for a final time.
9. And after that in the seventh week shall an apostate generation arise,
And many shall be its deeds,
And all its deeds shall be apostate.
- This is the time of the RCC, the Beast and its followers, yes even Protestantism which carries her ways still to this day.
10. And at its close shall be elected
The elect righteous of the eternal plant of righteousness,
To receive seven-fold instruction concerning all His creation.
- His elect/righteous are being selected from the eternal plant (seed of Abraham) to come out of her (Babylon’s) ways and to receive seven-fold instruction (doctrine/wisdom), NOW.
However, the Beast is and will be after the ‘remnant’.
“And his tail drew (draw, drag, force away) the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman, which was ready to be delivered, to devour her child, when she had brought it forth”
“Then the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went and made war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of Elohim, and have the testimony of Yahusha Ha’Mashiach.”
Only those that have faith in Messiah and keep the commandments of Elohim are a threat to the Dragon, Satan.
The amazing news? We are that generation selected to repair the breech, to be the light of the world (Matthew 5:14) and flee the apostasy that has consumed his people for centuries, serving the Elohim of Israel in spirit and Truth. Do you have the eyes to see? Will you be a true ambassador for Messiah?
“12. And after that there shall be another, the eighth week, that of righteousness,
And a sword shall be given to it that a righteous judgement may be executed on the oppressors,
And sinners shall be delivered into the hands of the righteous. 13 And at its close they shall acquire houses through their righteousness,”
The New World Order Isn’t New
“Then the king wrote to his whole kingdom that all should be one people, and that each should give up his customs. All the Gentiles accepted the command of the king. Many even from Israel gladly adopted his religion; they sacrificed to idols and profaned the sabbath.”
1 Maccabees 1:41-43
This is what the world is selling right now. That we all should come together, put our differences down and be one people. While that may sound like a good idea, scripture teaches us to be different than the world, set-apart.
“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, says Yahuah, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,”
2 Corinthians 6:17
We should not be blending in with the world. We should be sticking out!
One World Religion
“Men worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?” – Rev 13:4
Here’s what’s coming, and in part, already here (false worship):
“Then I saw another beast which rose out of the earth; it had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon. It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence, and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed.”
Protestantism still attempts to worship the creator in
man Devil made ways.
“This people draws nigh unto me with their mouth, and honors me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”
Back to the Maccabees:
“And the king sent letters by messengers to Jerusalem and the cities of Judah; he directed them to follow customs strange to the land, to forbid burnt offerings and sacrifices and drink offerings in the sanctuary, to profane sabbaths and feasts,to defile the sanctuary and the priests,to build altars and sacred precincts and shrines for idols, to sacrifice swine and unclean animals,and to leave their sons uncircumcised. They were to make themselves abominable by everything unclean and profane, so that they should forget the law (Torah) and change all the ordinances.”
1 Maccabees 1:44-49
Mainstream Christianity preaches that it is lawful to eat swine and other unclean animals — likewise to leave their children uncircumcised. Nearly the entire population on earth has forgotten the Torah of Elohim.
The ‘M’ and the ‘V’ are just warm ups for what’s next. You think outlawing the Sabbath or feast days is farfetched? The past 18 months should be a lesson for us now. The next big topic on their agenda will be ‘Climate C.’ I believe this will be the vehicle used to begin their push towards a true one world agenda, including religion, just as the C0v!D ordeal has done with the ‘M’ and ‘V’.
Back to worship; not only are the nations not serving the true Elohim the way he commanded it to be done, even ‘Christians’ forsook the law many years ago, due to the Beast’s (RCC) influence. If the Sabbath, or feast days of Yah were outlawed tomorrow, how many Christians would care? Would the world care? Hardly, they will fall in line as commanded.
“Therefore do not ask any more questions about the multitude of those who perish. For they also received freedom, but they despised the Most High, and were contemptuous of his Torah (law), and forsook his ways.”
2 Esdras 8:55-56
“For indeed I will not concern myself about the fashioning of those who have sinned, or about their death, their judgment, or their destruction; but I will rejoice over the creation of the righteous, over their pilgrimage also, and their salvation, and their receiving their reward. As I have spoken, therefore, so it shall be.”
2 Esdras 8:38-40
“And whoever does not obey the command of the king shall die.” In such words he wrote to his whole kingdom. And he appointed inspectors over all the people and commanded the cities of Judah to offer sacrifice, city by city. Many of the people, every one who forsook the Torah (law), joined them, and they did evil in the land; they drove Israel into hiding in every place of refuge they had. Now on the fifteenth day of Chislev, in the one hundred and forty-fifth year, they erected a desolating sacrilege (abomination of desolation) upon the altar of burnt offering. They also built altars in the surrounding cities of Judah, and burned incense at the doors of the houses and in the streets. The books of the law which they found they tore to pieces and burned with fire. Where the book of the covenant was found in the possession of any one, or if any one adhered to the law, the decree of the king condemned him to death. They kept using violence against Israel, against those found month after month in the cities. And on the twenty-fifth day of the month they offered sacrifice on the altar which was upon the altar of burnt offering. According to the decree, they put to death the women who had their children circumcised, and their families and those who circumcised them; and they hung the infants from their mothers’ necks. But many in Israel stood firm and were resolved in their hearts not to eat unclean food. They chose to die rather than to be defiled by food or to profane the holy covenant; and they did die. And very great wrath came upon Israel.”
1 Maccabees 1:50-64
If you think our Messiah or his apostles taught it was ok to eat unlawful meats, such as pork, please see this short study.
Unfortunately, the majority will fall in line with the one world religion. Why? Because it will be masked by apostate Christianity, and the false image of the Beast (the image of lawlessness).
“And at his word the sun will rise at night and he will make the moon to appear at the sixth hour. And all that he hath desired he will do in the world: he will do and speak like the Beloved (messiah) and he will say: “I am Elohim and before me there has been none.” And all the people in the world will believe in him. And they will sacrifice to him and they will serve him saying: “This is Elohim and beside him there is no other.” And the greater number of those who shall have been associated together in order to receive the Beloved (Christians), he will turn aside after him.”
Ascension of Isaiah 4:5-9
- This is already happening. The Christian world serves and preaches a false version (image) of the true Son of Elohim. They serve a Messiah who ‘did away’ with the law (Torah). This is pure lawlessness. This version of our true messiah, is Anti messiah (Antichrist). You can read the Ascension of Isaiah, here.
History Shows Us What We Need To Do
“Then the king’s officers who were enforcing the apostasy came to the city of Mo′de-in to make them offer sacrifice. Many from Israel came to them; and Mattathi′as and his sons were assembled. Then the king’s officers spoke to Mattathi′as as follows: “You are a leader, honored and great in this city, and supported by sons and brothers. Now be the first to come and do what the king commands, as all the Nations and the men of Judah and those that are left in Jerusalem have done. Then you and your sons will be numbered among the friends of the king, and you and your sons will be honored with silver and gold and many gifts.”
1 Maccabees 2:15-18
- Modern day context: Basic universal income??
“But Mattathi′as answered and said in a loud voice: “Even if all the nations that live under the rule of the king obey him, and have chosen to do his commandments, departing each one from the religion of his fathers, yet I and my sons and my brothers will live by the covenant of our fathers. Far be it from us to desert the Torah (law) and the ordinances. We will not obey the king’s words by turning aside from our religion to the right hand or to the left.”
1 Maccabees 2:19-22
“Only be you strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the Torah (law), which Moses my servant commanded you: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go”
What do we have to fear?
“And the remnant of Jacob (Israel/Us) shall be among the nations, in the midst of many peoples, like a lion among the beasts of the forest, like a young lion among the flocks of sheep, which, when it goes through, treads down and tears in pieces, and there is none to deliver. Your hand shall be lifted up over your adversaries, and all your enemies shall be cut off.”
“Now the days drew near for Mattathi′as to die, and he said to his sons: “Arrogance and reproach have now become strong; it is a time of ruin and furious anger. Now, my children, show zeal for the law, and give your lives for the covenant of our fathers. “Remember the deeds of the fathers, which they did in their generations; and receive great honor and an everlasting name. Was not Abraham found faithful when tested, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness? Joseph in the time of his distress kept the commandment, and became lord of Egypt. Phin′ehas our father, because he was deeply zealous, received the covenant of everlasting priesthood. Joshua, because he fulfilled the command, became a judge in Israel. Caleb, because he testified in the assembly, received an inheritance in the land. David, because he was merciful, inherited the throne of the kingdom for ever. Eli′jah because of great zeal for the law was taken up into heaven. Hanani′ah, Azari′ah, and Mish′a-el believed and were saved from the flame. Daniel because of his innocence was delivered from the mouth of the lions. “And so observe, from generation to generation, that none who put their trust in him will lack strength. Do not fear the words of a sinner, for his splendor will turn into dung and worms. Today he will be exalted, but tomorrow he will not be found, because he has returned to the dust, and his plans will perish. My children, be courageous and grow strong in the law, for by it you will gain honor.”
1 Maccabees 2:49-64
Noah had his time, Abraham his, likewise Isaac and Jacob. David had his time to stand up for what’s right, just like Azariah, Hananiah and Mishael.
This is our time to prove ourselves.
Will you stand for what’s right in the sight of Elohim, or fall in line with the crowd? Do you even keep his ways now while it’s not illegal? If not, time is still open for you to repent, believe in the Son of Elohim, Yahusha our true and lawful messiah and walk as he walked, according to the commandments of Yahuah, our Elohim.
“And by this we may be sure that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He who says “I know him” but disobeys his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whoever keeps his word, in him truly love for Elohim is perfected. By this we may be sure that we are in him: he who says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked. Beloved, I am writing you no new commandment, but an old commandment which you had from the beginning; the old commandment is the word which you have heard.”
1 John 2:3-7
Like most debatable topics, you can find at least some evidence to support both sides. When it comes to the safety or martyrdom of the real believers in the tribulation, this is also true. I think we need to have the strength to withstand the worst, but pray, hope and believe in the ultimate rescue. Let us put our fear towards him, not what man can do to us!
“Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are of a fearful heart, “Be strong, fear not! Behold, your Elohim will come with vengeance, with the recompense of Elohim. He will come and save you.”
“Behold, Elohim is the judge, fear him! Cease from your sins, and forget your iniquities, never to commit them again; so Elohim will lead you forth and deliver you from all tribulation. For behold, the burning wrath of a great multitude is kindled over you, and they shall carry off some of you and shall feed you what was sacrificed to idols. And those who consent to eat shall be held in derision and contempt, and be trodden under foot. For in many places and in neighboring cities there shall be a great insurrection against those who fear Yahuah. They shall be like mad men, sparing no one, but plundering and destroying those who continue to fear Yahuah. For they shall destroy and plunder their goods, and drive them out of their houses. Then the tested quality of my elect shall be manifest, as gold that is tested by fire.”
2 Esdras 16:67-73
– Some will suffer, but be strong no matter what. Who are those that ‘fear him’?
“Those who fear Yahuah will not disobey his words, and those who love him will keep his ways. Those who fear Yahuah will seek his approval, and those who love him will be filled with the law (Torah)”
“Hear, my elect,” says Yahuah. “Behold, the days of tribulation are at hand, and I will deliver you from them. Do not fear or doubt, for Elohim is your guide. You who keep my commandments and precepts,” says Yahuah Elohim, “do not let your sins pull you down, or your iniquities prevail over you.” 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! It is shut off and given up to be consumed by fire.”
2 Esdras 16:74-78
LEARN FROM THE LEVITES
Lastly, I want to share a passage from The Book of Jasher. This book was mentioned in Joshua 10:13 and in 2 Samuel 1:18. The Book of Jasher expounds on the captivity in Egypt, giving details that we don’t get from The Book of Exodus. As we know, Pharaoh and his people were afraid of the Israelite’s and wanted to subdue and force them into slavery. This book let’s us know, that the Egyptians dealt with deceit, luring them into slavery over time. Brothers and sisters, the world is doing this very same thing NOW. Let’s take a lesson from the Levites in Egypt.
“So the king answered the elders of Egypt and said unto them, This is the plan advised against Israel, from which we will not depart, Behold in the land are Pithom and Rameses, cities unfortified against battle, it behooves you and us to build them, and to fortify them. Now therefore go you also and act cunningly toward them, and proclaim a voice in Egypt and in Goshen at the command of the king, saying, All ye men of Egypt, Goshen, Pathros and all their inhabitants! the king has commanded us to build Pithom and Rameses, and to fortify them for battle; who amongst you of all Egypt, of the children of Israel and of all the inhabitants of the cities, are willing to build with us, shall each have his wages given to him daily at the king’s order; so go you first and do cunningly, and gather yourselves and come to Pithom and Rameses to build. And whilst you are building, cause a proclamation of this kind to be made throughout Egypt every day at the command of the king. And when some of the children of Israel shall come to build with you, you shall give them their wages daily for a few days. And after they shall have built with you for their daily hire, drag yourselves away from them daily one by one in secret, and then you shall rise up and become their task-masters and officers, and you shall leave them afterward to build without wages, and should they refuse, then force them with all your might to build.
- The Egyptians dealt with stealth and secrecy, just as the worldly powers do to this very day.
“And if you do this it will be well with us to strengthen our land against the children of Israel, for on account of the fatigue of the building and the work, the children of Israel will decrease, because you will deprive them from their wives day by day. And all the elders of Egypt heard the counsel of the king, and the counsel seemed good in their eyes and in the eyes of the servants of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all Egypt, and they did according to the word of the king.”
“And all the servants went away from the king, and they caused a proclamation to be made in all Egypt, in Tachpanches and in Goshen, and in all the cities which surrounded Egypt, saying, You have seen what the children of Esau and Ishmael did to us, who came to war against us and wished to destroy us. Now therefore the king commanded us to fortify the land, to build the cities Pithom and Rameses, and to fortify them for battle, if they should again come against us. Whosoever of you from all Egypt and from the children of Israel will come to build with us, he shall have his daily wages given by the king, as his command is unto us. And when Egypt and all the children of Israel heard all that the servants of Pharaoh had spoken, there came from the Egyptians, and the children of Israel to build with the servants of Pharaoh, Pithom and Rameses, but none of the children of Levi came with their brethren to build.”
Unfortunately, we were born into this slavery, however, we still have time to act with wisdom, just like the Levites did.
“And all the servants of Pharaoh and his princes came at first with deceit to build with all Israel as daily hired laborers, and they gave to Israel their daily hire at the beginning. And the servants of Pharaoh built with all Israel, and were employed in that work with Israel for a month. And at the end of the month, all the servants of Pharaoh began to withdraw secretly from the people of Israel daily. And Israel went on with the work at that time, but they then received their daily hire, because some of the men of Egypt were yet carrying on the work with Israel at that time; therefore the Egyptians gave Israel their hire in those days, in order that they, the Egyptians their fellow-workmen, might also take the pay for their labor. And at the end of a year and four months all the Egyptians had withdrawn from the children of Israel, so that the children of Israel were left alone engaged in the work.”
- After the children of Israel departed Egypt, they wanted to go back as soon as things got tough. Why? They loved their captivity — well fed and entertained, just as we are today.
“And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to Elohim we had died by the hand of Yahuah in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.”
“And after all the Egyptians had withdrawn from the children of Israel they returned and became oppressors and officers over them, and some of them stood over the children of Israel as task masters, to receive from them all that they gave them for the pay of their labor.And the Egyptians did in this manner to the children of Israel day by day, in order to afflict in their work. And all the children of Israel were alone engaged in the labor, and the Egyptians refrained from giving any pay to the children of Israel from that time forward. And when some of the men of Israel refused to work on account of the wages not being given to them, then the exactors and the servants of Pharaoh oppressed them and smote them with heavy blows, and made them return by force, to labor with their brethren; thus did all the Egyptians unto the children of Israel all the days. And all the children of Israel were greatly afraid of the Egyptians in this matter, and all the children of Israel returned and worked alone without pay.”
“The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender”
“And the children of Israel built Pithom and Rameses, and all the children of Israel did the work, some making bricks, and some building, and the children of Israel built and fortified all the land of Egypt and its walls, and the children of Israel were engaged in work for many years, until the time came when Yahuah remembered them and brought them out of Egypt. But the children of Levi were not employed in the work with their brethren of Israel, from the beginning unto the day of their going forth from Egypt. For all the children of Levi knew that the Egyptians had spoken all these words with deceit to the Israelites, therefore the children of Levi refrained from approaching to the work with their brethren. And the Egyptians did not direct their attention to make the children of Levi work afterward, since they had not been with their brethren at the beginning, therefore the Egyptians left them alone.”
Let us learn from history my brothers and sisters. Stay away from the deceit of AmerEgypt and stand firm in our faith in the True Messiah. Let us be grounded and rooted in the Torah, the commandments of Yahuah. Let us pull out of the world and the fear of man. Let us fear Yahuah alone and fall into his hands.
“Consider the ancient generations and see: who ever trusted in Yahuah and was put to shame? Or who ever persevered in the fear of Yahuah and was forsaken? Or who ever called upon him and was overlooked? For Yahuah is compassionate and merciful; he forgives sins and saves in time of affliction. Woe to timid hearts and to slack hands, and to the sinner who walks along two ways! Woe to the faint heart, for it has no trust! Therefore it will not be sheltered. Woe to you who have lost your endurance! What will you do when Yahuah punishes you? Those who fear Yahuah will not disobey his words, and those who love him will keep his ways. Those who fear Yahuah will seek his approval, and those who love him will be filled with the law (Torah). Those who fear Yahuah will prepare their hearts, and will humble themselves before him. Let us fall into the hands of Yahuah, but not into the hands of men; for as his majesty is, so also is his mercy.”
Sirach (Ecclesiasticus) 2:10-18
The entire story of man has always been about obedience. Who will you obey? The Devil and his many branches of false religion? Or will you obey Yahuah and his eternal Torah, just as our perfect example, our Messiah did and live.
May Yahuah bless you and keep you,
Yahuah make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you,
Yahuah lift up his countenance upon you and give you Shalom (peace)
