The word return used in the Old Testament. Our Father uses this word for His people. We are to return to Him. To withdraw from our pagan, worldly ways and go back to the starting point of Torah and Him.



A primitive root; to turn back (hence, away) transitively or intransitively, literally or figuratively (not necessarily with the idea of return to the starting point); generally to retreat; often adverbially again: - ([break, build, circumcise, dig, do anything, do evil, feed, lay down, lie down, lodge, make, rejoice, send, take, weep]) X again, (cause to) answer (+ again), X in any case (wise), X at all, averse, bring (again, back, home again), call [to mind], carry again (back), cease, X certainly, come again (back) X consider, + continually, convert, deliver (again), + deny, draw back, fetch home again, X fro, get [oneself] (back) again, X give (again), go again (back, home), [go] out, hinder, let, [see] more, X needs, be past, X pay, pervert, pull in again, put (again, up again), recall, recompense, recover, refresh, relieve, render (again), X repent, requite, rescue, restore, retrieve, (cause to, make to) return, reverse, reward, + say nay, send back, set again, slide back, still, X surely, take back (off), (cause to, make to) turn (again, self again, away, back, back again, backward, from, off), withdraw.

People say because Sabbath was not preached in the New Testament that we don't have to keep it. I have a question. Why would they have to preach something that they were all keeping? Remember the Word that was preached to them was Torah and if someone was not keeping Sabbath they were stoned. Just like Mary would have been stoned for being with child because she had not married Joseph yet. She was thought to have had been with another man. It was a sin. Sin is transgressing the Law. The Law tells us what sin is. It may have not been preached but there are 55 verses in the New Testament mentioning the Sabbath, so there were keeping it.

The beautiful thing about Sabbath and why it is so important is because Sabbath is an outward sign. Yes, it is a sign between you and Him. But it is a physical sign. When I keep the other commandments: not murdering, adultery, stealing, lying, or coveting. They are just things I don't do, I stay away from. But the Sabbath is something that I physically do. I set the seventh day aside to rest, study and spend time with my family. I remember Him and who He is to me and what all He has done. I recognize my Creator, the one who saved me out of the miry clay. I put Him first. It is the one commandment we are told to Remember ,Observe and Keep Holy. In remembering, observing and keeping I am saying I know who I belong to, who redeemed me, who saved me. It is a time set apart. I stop all that I am doing and recognize Him as my Saviour, my all. I remember not to get caught up in this world, you know the sayings "this is life, this is what we do or this is how americans do it". Americans are so busy. They are so exhausted from their comings and goings they don't have time to read and study the bible. Satan has so many caught up in the lie that it is all about being busy with churchianity and different organizations "doing good" but they have no clue of what really is being said in the Bible and how it affects our lives. They keep listening to the false prophets. So many people say that they are "too busy, it's too chaotic, or He knows my heart" Well, Jer. 17:9-10 says, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the Yahweh search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings."

Are you really producing fruit? Do you put Him first? Do you take the time to read and study and teach your children what the Word says? Our Father in heaven knew He could count on Abraham to do what he was supposed to do. "For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Yahweh, to do justice and judgment; that the Yahweh may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him." Genesis 18:19. He even called him friend.

If you are waiting for things to be perfect to start keeping His commandments, it ain't gonna happen. Satan will keep you so busy "doing good" and "living life" that you never get the chance to get understanding. Proverbs 4:1-7 Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.
For I give you good instruction, forsake ye not my Torah.
For I was my father's son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.
He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.
Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.
Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

The Bible doesn't say the Israelites waited for things to be perfect and then they Did and Obeyed. No, they just started obeying. We have to trust Him and know that everything will fall into place. Sabbath is a true, in motion, outward sign between you and Him.

Jews and Judeo-Christians

My husband and I enjoy watching the Naked Archaeologist on the History Channel. Don't worry he isn't really naked.   He recently said something that I know to be true but it is exciting to hear other people say.  He said, "the only difference between Jews and Judeo-Christians was that the Jews were still looking for their Messiah and Judeo-Christians were looking for the Messiah's second coming."  In other words, Jews and Judeo-Christians all kept Torah.  And that is exactly what he went on to discuss.  Well, not but a few weeks later I am having a reunion of friends from high school and one of my friends has married a man from Morocco. A really nice, intelligent man.  He is Muslim.  He notices on my wall in my kitchen, a calendar. We have a huge chalkboard that my husband painted for us.  On this chalkboard is our calendar.  I don't label the month or the days but I have 5 rows of 6 days then the seventh day, the Sabbath.  When he saw this he became really excited and we struck up a conversation and he began to tell me the same thing.  That the first Christians (Judeo-Christians he called them) believed the same as Jews.  They kept Sabbath, Kosher, the Commandments,  etc.  They kept Torah.  I was so excited to hear this.  I already know this to be true but to hear it come out of someone else's mouth and someone from another religion.  I don't know.  It is exciting!

The *Word* By Which The Gospel Was Preached (Revised)

I originally posted this back in March.  But have since come across another scripture to confirm this truth.

March Post:

Again, I am on my treadmill. I am listening to the audio bible on my IPod. 1 Peter, chaper 1 and on verse 24 through verse 25 the voice says, "For all flesh is as grass, and all glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Elohim endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you." Now, this is my "aha" moment. Christians say they are New Testament Christians and that the gospel is not the same as the Old Testament, that Yeshau taught something new. I know differently, but having the scripture that ties the two together when I am talking to someone helps. Verse 24,25 is quoted from Isaiah 40:6-8 "The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field: The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the Yahweh bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass. The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our Elohim shall stand for ever." The Word in the Old Testament is the Torah, His will and it stands for ever and this scripture is being quoted in the New that endures for ever and is the word which by the gospel is preached unto us, and the other scripture that is referenced Luke 16:17 "And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail." This is no crossing the t or dotting the i. This is hebrew writing. And Mathew 5:18 "For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled." Heaven and earth are still here and He hasn't returned yet. Wow, thank you Father in Heaven. This is an answer to prayer. It is something I have known but when you find the Word that interprets the Word. I can almost hear Angels sing. Okay, just kidding. Psalms 119:89 "For ever, O Yahweh, thy word is settled in heaven."

Addtional scripture:

My brother came across this scripture which references 1 Peter 1:24,25. In Hebrews 4:2,3 it says, "For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world."

Did you see that? Of course you did, I put it in bold for you. In Hebrews it is talking about the Israelites not entering in the Promised Land because of lack of faith. The Gospel that was preached that all churchianity teaches and says it is a new thing that Yeshua taught and that the Old Testament is well, you know, "Torah is to the Jews only". The scripture doesn't say Jew one doctrine and Gentiles another. No, it says Jew first, then Gentile. The Israelites had Torah but couldn't enter in because of unbelief. In other words, no faith. Churchianity has faith but doesn't understand the Gospel is the Torah. They won't enter in because He will say "I never knew you". And we all know how He knows us because we are sealed because we keep His commandments. The Gospel that was preached unto us is the same that was preached unto them, the Torah!!!

Psalms 104

Psalms 104

 1Bless the Yahweh, O my soul. O Yahweh my Elohim, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
2Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:
3Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:
4Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
5Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.
6Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.
7At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.
8They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.
9Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.
10He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.
11They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.
12By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.
13He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.
14He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;
15And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's heart.
16The trees of the Yahweh are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;
17Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.
18The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies.
19He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.
20Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.
21The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from Elohim.
22The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens.
23Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.
24O Yahweh, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
25So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.
26There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.
27These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.
28That thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good.
29Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.
30Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.
31The glory of the Yahweh shall endure for ever: the Yahweh shall rejoice in his works.
32He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they smoke.
33I will sing unto the Yahweh as long as I live: I will sing praise to my Elohim while I have my being.
34My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the Yahweh.
35Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the Yahweh, O my soul. Praise ye the Yahweh.

Why the Picture Change?

Why did I change the picture?  The Bible says we are grafted in and I understand that. I have repented of my sins and have returned (hebrew- shub: to turn back) to Him. I am studying the Word to get understanding and be obedient to His Word.  Ezekiel says that we (Joes) and the Jews are to become one again.  The whole house united again. The building again of the Tabernacle of David.  But we aren't there yet. There is still this division, each house is still against the other.  This new picture saddens me. This picture of two trees next to each other, very close but still not one is the best way to describe the two houses. But at the same time this picture gives me hope because even though we are not one we are closer than we have ever been before. 

Blessings Everyone!

Food for Thought

 “Nevertheless, the people still sacrificed on the high places, but only to the Yahweh their Elohim” (2 Chr 33:17). The only true place of worship was the Temple in Jerusalem, not the high places. Jerusalem was where he put His name.  Yet, we still keep doing our on thing. 


I haven't been on in awhile and I am sorry for that.  My computer crashed about a month ago. But I am up and running again and expect to be back to writing what my Father puts on my heart. I have several things I can't wait to blog about.

As you can see there have been some changes. I have changed the picture and I will blog about that another time.  My brother John has moved on.  We are not connected to the Facebook page anymore and we are considering moving this blog to one that is about our life. The new blog will have the same makeup, but with addtional pages of kosher recipes, family, etc.  I am hoping by the Fall to have this up and running.  I hope. 

Blessings Everyone!
