1  Kadosh Scriptures: The Kadosh Scriptures are the divinely inspired Words of Yahuwah:  Luke 11:27-28; 1 Peter 1:5, 7, 16  They are able to make us wise unto salvation through faith in Amanuwal  Ha’Mashyach.  “All Scripture is given by inspiration of Yahuwah, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”.  2 Timothy 3:16; Matthew 4:4; Deuteronomy 4:2; 12:32; Proverbs 30:6 and Revelation 22:18-19;   We are not to add to or take away from these inspired scriptures.   Amanuwal came to fulfill the law, not to destroy it. Matthew 5:17-19   To interpret the inspired Scriptures correctly, one must use both the Old and New Testaments and let the Scriptures interpret themselves. Therefore to interpret the New Testament through the teachings of the Old Testament, one must recognize the complete harmony of the Sacred Scriptures to achieve sound doctrine, John 10:35. In the New Testament there are repeated references to the Torah (Law), the Psalms, and the prophets: i.e., the Word of Yahuwah, 2 Peter 1:21; John 5:39; Luke 24:44-46; 2 Timothy 3:14-17; Isaiah 8:16, 20; Acts 17:11, 24:14; Isaiah 40:8; 1 Peter 1:24-25

2 Yahuwah:  There is one Heavenly Father who is above all.  He is the master architect of all creation.  All mankind owes reverence and worship to Him, Deuteronomy 6:4, 13; Psalms 68:4; Isaiah 42:8; Jeremiah 16:21; Matthew 4:10; 1 Corinthians 8:4-6.  His creation was carried out by Yah Yahuwah (Isaiah 12:2, 26:4) or the Word which later became flesh and dwelt among us in the person of Amanuwal , Yahuwah’s Son. John 1:3; Genesis 1:26; Ephesians 3:9; Proverbs 8:22, 31; Revelation 3:14; Colossians1:15-17  The Father’s name as given in the original inspired Scriptures is Yahuwah. Exodus 3:14-15, 6:2-3; Psalms 68:4, 83:18, 91:14; Isaiah 42:8; Jeremiah 16:21, 23:26-27; Daniel 2:20; Malachi 3:16-17; John 17:6, 26; Hebrews 2:12; Revelation 3:8.  Yahuwah is his name eternally.  Isaiah 63:12-17, Psalms 22:22, John 17:11; Ephesians3:14-15 Yahuwah, the Father is the Supreme Deity, the Creator, and Sustainer of the heavens and earth and all things therein.  Genesis 1:1, Isaiah. 40:26, 44:24, 63:12; 2 Kings17:36, Psalms 99:9.  We are to revere His name and make no mention of the names other deities.  Exodus 20:7, 23:13; Lev 22:2; Deuteronomy 28:58, Psalms 68:4; 105:1, Isaiah 42:8; 52:6; Jeremiah 23:26-27; Ezekiel 36:20-23; 39:7, 25; Matthew 6:9; John 17:26

3 Amanuwal:  Hebrew 06005. עמנואל Pronunciation ah-maw-noo-ahl from 5973 and 410 with a pronominal suffix inserted; with us (is) God; Immanuel, a type name of Isaiah’s son:–Immanuel.

Strong’s has it wrong in stating that it is a type of Isaiah’s son’s name as we find that in Isaiah 8:1 Moreover Yahuwah said unto me, Take thee a great roll, and write in it with a man’s pen concerning Mahershalalhashbaz. 2 And I took unto me faithful witnesses to record, Uriah the priest, and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah.  3 And I went unto the prophetess; and she conceived, and bare a son. Then said Yahuwah to me, Call his name Mahershalalhashbaz.

Greek 1694: Ἐμμανουήλ Pronunciation em-man-oo-ale’ of Hebrew origin (H6005); God with us; Emmanuel, a name of Christ:–Emmanuel.

Again, Strong’s has it wrong, it is not “a name”, but “the name” of Ha’Mashyach.  It is a theophoric (a name which contains the name or title of a diety) made up of two Hebrew words, אֵל, ’Al, meaning “Mighty One”, and עִמָּנוּ, ʻImmānū, meaning “with us”, and appears as one word, a noun, in the oldest relative document, the Dead Sea Scrolls.

He is the only born Son of Yahuwah the Father.  He was sent from Yahuwah the Father to be our Savior. Hosea 13:4-6; John 5:43; Philippians 2:5-11  By no other name shall we be saved.  Acts 4:12, 10:43; Philippians 2:9-11 Ha’Mashyach came in human form. He pre-existed with the Father,  Matthew 1:23; John 5:43; 16:28-30; Psalm 2; Micah 5:2; John 17:5, 26; Philippians 2:5-8; 1 Corinthians 8:6; Hebrews 9:26; 1 John 1:1-3  He was the Word or Spokesman that spoke and was spoken of in the Old Testament.  Genesis 1:26; Exodus 24:10, Chapter 33; Deuteronomy 32:4-37; 1 Samuel 2:2, 2 Samuel Chapters 22 and 23; Psalms 18; Isaiah 45:15; John 1:1-4, 12-14; 8:58; 13:3; 1 Corinthians 10:4; Ephesians 3:9; Colossians1:15-17.  He was the Rock and Al with Israel throughout the Old Testament for no one has heard nor seen the Father.  John 5:37-43.

Proverbs 30: 4 Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son’s name, if thou canst tell?

Thanks be to Father Yahuwah – the revelation has been given and the answer has been made simple and clear. It will do the same for you if you are willing to hear what the Ruwach says unto the Assemblies (the called out ones).

Father Yahuwah has given us His instruction book – Ha’Kadosh Scriptures. They contain all that is necessary for salvation, and this is where we will also find His Son’s name. If this name is important,and we know it is, then it will be contained in the pages of the sacred book.

The revelation begins with a prophecy in Isaiah (Yashayahu) 7:14 ……. and shall call his name Amanuwal (עמנואל). We are aware there are those that state that this really says, “shall proclaim his mighty name among his people”, but they point to Z’kharyahu (Zechariah) 6:10-12 for the name, but this is Yahushua the son of Yahutzadak who in Zech 3:1-8 was foretold to be the High Priest who was once in filthy garments and would be brought forth as the branch.  Of course we know Ha’Mashyach would not have to clean his garments. Isaiah (Yashayahu)11:10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. Also see- Isaiah 28:16; Matthew 21:42; John 15:1-5; Romans 15:12; Revelation 22:16 and many more.  We are the branches.

If we continue reading on in Yahshayahu, we see that this is a dual prophecy for destruction. (King of Assyria in 734 BCE and Assyria shall surely attack again) – Yahshayahu 7: 17 Yahuwah shall bring upon thee, and upon thy people, and upon thy father’s house, days that have not come, from the day that Ephraim departed from Judah; even the king of Assyria. 18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that Yahuwah shall hiss for the fly that is in the uttermost part of the rivers of Egypt, and for the bee that is in the land of Assyria. 19 And they shall come, and shall rest all of them in the desolate valleys, and in the holes of the rocks, and upon all thorns, and upon all bushes. 20 In the same day shall Yahuwah shave with a razor that is hired, namely, by them beyond the river, by the king of Assyria, the head, and the hair of the feet: and it shall also consume the beard. 21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a man shall nourish a young cow, and two sheep; 22 And it shall come to pass, for the abundance of milk that they shall give he shall eat butter: for butter and honey shall every one eat that is left in the land. 23 And it shall come to pass in that day, that every place shall be, where there were a thousand vines at a thousand silverlings, it shall even be for briers and thorns. 24 With arrows and with bows shall men come thither; because all the land shall become briers and thorns. 25 And on all hills that shall be digged with the mattock, there shall not come thither the fear of briers and thorns: but it shall be for the sending forth of oxen, and for the treading of lesser cattle.

Yahuwah allowed the lying pen of the scribes to hide His name over 7,000 times and he allowed them to do the same with the son’s name.  However, just as he preserved his name (although in short form, YAH – Psalms 68:4) for us he has done the same with his son’s name. (It is translated God the other 44 times it is used in the original.)

So what name:  When the time had come and this prophesy was to be fulfilled, Father Yahuwah sent an angel/messenger first to Josef (Yosef) Matt. 1:20-23 with the clear instructions, to name the baby Amanuwal, which ties in directly to the prophesy in Yashayahu (Isaiah).

Father Yahuwah also sent the angel/messenger to Miriam. Here we see what he said, in Luke 1:31-35 … and shall call his name Iesous (Ιησούς)……… Instead of the correct name “Amanuwal” (Ἐμμανουήλ) as foretold in prophecy, you see the pagan Iesous in Greek.

But we, who have the Ruwach Ha’Kadosh, know that the angel spoke in the Hebrew tongue and ensured the sign foretold to us in Yashayahu (Isaiah) would be fulfilled, he said “Amanuwal”, he did not utter a Greek name! Father Yahuwah is not the author of confusion!

We also must consider that the husband named the child, as we have seen with the story of Zacharias/Zekaryah in Luke 1:13 ….and thou shall call his name Yochanan. The same instructions were given to Yosef because he was the earthly father.

It is important to remember that Father Yahuwah would not give a Hebrew name to Yahshayahu (Isaiah) and Yosef and then a Greek or Aramaic name to Miriam. We do know that Satan would do this with the help of the lying pen of the scribes and he is the author of confusion.

Jer 8:8 How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of Yahuwah is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain.

The Dead Sea Scrolls which pre-date the Septuagint, read Yashayahu (Isaiah) 7:14 “And He will call his name Amanuel”.

We do not need to read what men have written about the Bible, all we need to do is study and believe what it says, and that it is the Word of Father Yahuwah preserved for His people through out the centuries.

Another thing to ponder is that this name has not been translated or transliterated. Even today no matter what language the scriptures are written in, you will find Amanuwal, Immanuel, Emmanuel, etc. The spelling may be different, but the meaning and even the pronunciation are extremely close. Yahuwah did not allow Satan to take it away. So even those that do NOT have the internet and history books, etc. can find both the name Father Yah and Savior Amanuwal. We do not need to be a Hebrew or History Scholar for He calls the weak and the base.

1 Corinthians 1:26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: 27 But Yahuwah hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and Yahuwah hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath Yahuwah chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: 29 That no flesh should glory in his presence. 30 But of him are ye in Maschyach Amanuwal, who of Yahuwah is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: 31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in Yahuwah.

We are to be immersed in HIS name not the name(s) of Joshua (H3091 and G2424) such as Yehoshua, Yesha, Yeshua, Yahshua, Yahusha, Yahushua, Iesous, or Jesus. There is ONLY one name. 

Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

No one else (scripture wise) had this name. Yahuwah of Hosts is our salvation and Yahuwah of Hosts was named Amanuwal when He walked this earth – He WAS/IS/WILL BE – Yahuwah.  He did not need a common Jewish name.

4 Ruwach Kadosh – Power of Yahuwah:  Amanuwal said if He departed, He would send the Comforter, which is the Kadosh (Set-Apart) Ruwach (Kadosh Ha-Kadosh), and through the Comforter we would be taught all things.  John 14:26, 15:26 and 16:7.   Ruwach Ha’Kadosh  is the power of Yahuwah.  It is given to the believer after repentance, Immersion, and laying on of hands.  Acts 2:38  It gives us the strength to overcome and work towards perfection.  Luke 24:49; John 3:8, 14:15-27, 15:26; 1 Corinthians 2:10-16; Act 2:33   There have been instances where some have received Ruwach Ha’Kadosh prior to Immersion. Ruwach Ha’Kadosh is a gift of Yahuwah given to whom he chooses. Acts 5:32, 8:14-24, 19:1-6; 1 Timothy 4:14.

5 The Law:  The Ten Commandments are still in effect today.  Exodus 20:1-17; Ezekiel 12:12-14; 1 John 5:1-5; Revelation 22:14  Search Paul’s words in 1 Corinthians 7:19.  What about the words of Amanuwal …  “If ye love me, keep my commandments”. John 14:15; Deuteronomy 5:10; John 14:23  Love Yahuwah with all your heart, soul, and mind and love your neighbor as yourself.  Matthew 22:3-40  Amanuwal summarizes all of the commandments into two GREAT commandments.  The first four commandments are combined in the first of these two great commandments which teach us how to love Yahuwah.  The last six are summed up in the second great commandment and teaches us how to love all mankind as we love ourselves. “On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”  Matthew 22:40; Mark 12:33  It is necessary to keep all the commandments, statutes, and judgments except the ritual and animal sacrificial laws which are no longer necessary because of the sacrifice of Ha’Mashyach. Leviticus 20:7-8; Deuteronomy 6:6-9, 25; 7:6-11, 30:1-20; Isaiah 40:8; 1 Peter 1:24-25; Matthew 5:17-20; Romans 7:12.  It is now possible through Ruwach Ha’Kadosh to keep the law.  Isaiah 56:1-8; Ephesians 2:8-10; James 2:17-20. We are to become living sacrifices.  Hebrews 13:15-16;1 Peter  2:5; James 1:22; Romans 12:1; Philippians 4:18; Revelation 22:12-14.

6 Sin:  Sin is the transgression (breaking) of the Torah – Yahuwah’s Laws.  1 John 3:4  Without law there is no sin.  Romans 7:7-12

  1. (Hebrew) chatta’ah, khat-taw-aw’ or chattacth {khat-tawth’};

from 2398; an offence (sometimes habitual sinfulness), and its penalty, occasion, sacrifice, or expiation; also (concretely) an offender:–punishment (of sin), purifying(-fication for sin), sin(-ner, offering).

  1. (Greek) hamartia, ham-ar-tee’-ahfrom 264; a sin (properly abstract):–offence, sin(-ful).

ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of Yahuwah.  Exodus 20:1-20; Deuteronomy 5:1-24; Romans 3:23  The penalty of sin is eternal death and can only be wiped away by repentance through Amanuwal  Ha’Mashyach.  Genesis 2:16-17, 3:19; Romans 6:23; 1 Corinthians 15:22; Hebrews 9:27; John 11:11-14; Ecclesiastes 9:5-6, 10; Isaiah 38:18; Psalms 115:17  Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins., Leviticus 4:2, 13, 27; Matthew 5:17-21; 1 John 3:4; Romans 3:20, 7:7-12; Revelation 22:10-15.  The keeping of the Law includes observing His commanded assemblies (Appointed Times/Feast, Sabbaths) as stated in Leviticus 23 and Numbers Chapters 28 and 29.  By obeying His Torah (Law), we demonstrate our love for Yahuwah. John 14:15-21; 15:12.  Grace does NOT void keeping His law.  Romans 3:31; James 2:14-17.  Even Paul taught the law and kept it.  Acts 24:14, 28:23;  Romans 2:20-29, 9:1-5; 1 Corinthians 7:17-19, 14:37, 15:55-56

7 Immersion:  Water immersion is a necessary act following repentance, Matthew 3:13-17; Acts 2:38, 4:12, 8:16, 10:43; 19:5; Romans 6:3-6

  1. (Strong’s Greek) baptizo, bap-tid’-zofrom a derivative of 911; to immerse, submerge; to make whelmed (i.e. fully wet); used only in the New Testament; of ceremonial ablution, especially (technically) of the ordinance of Christian Immersion:–Baptist, immerse, wash.

This immersion is into the Name of Amanuwal Ha’Mashyach; John 5:43; John 14:26; Acts 8:17 for by no other name is there salvation.  Acts 4:12  There is only one true immersion into the only saving name of Amanuwal  Ha’Mashyach. Ephesians 4:5-6  Immersion represents the burial of the old person. Acts 8:18-19; 1 Timothy 4:14; Hebrews 6:2  After laying on of hands and the receipt of Ruwach Ha’Kadosh, we are placed into the body of Ha’Mashyach.  Acts 8:17; Romans 12:5, 6:7-23; Ephesians 4:3-6; 1 Corinthians 10:1-10, 12:12-14; 2 Timothy 1:6-7. “He that believeth and is immersed shall be saved.”  John 20:31; Mark 16:16 “Repent and be immersed everyone of you in the name of Amanuwal  Ha’Mashyach for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of Ruwach Ha’Kadosh.” Acts 2:38, 5:32, 19:17-18; 2 Timothy 1:6-7.  We are shown in scripture, that very few received Ruwach Ha’Kadosh prior to their Immersion.  However, even then, the receiver is commanded to be immersed as Cornelius and his family were.  Acts 10 (Entire Chapter) We do not immerse children under the age of 20.   However, we do believe as Amanuwal  did, that little children should be blessed by the laying on of hands, by the elders of the assembly, in the name of Amanuwal .  Matthew 19:14-15; Mark 10:13-14; Luke 18:15-17 Scriptures teach us that one cannot be held accountable for vows made under this age.   Exodus 30:14; Leviticus 27:3;  Numbers 1:3; 14:29; 26:2; 32:11; 1 Chronicles 23:24; Ezra 3:8; Matthew 3:13-17; Acts 2:38, 4:12, 8:16, 10:43, 19:5; Romans 6:3   The commitment to Yahuwah is an everlasting vow.  Children below the age of 20 do not understand the commitment (vow) they would be making.  Before one can be immersed, he must fully understand (Nehemiah 10:28 later part) and weigh or count the cost (John 6:44-45), believe (Mark 16:15-16; Acts 8:12), repent (Acts 2:38) and confess his/her sins (Romans 10:9-12; Hebrews 6:4-6).

8 Salvation:  What is salvation?

  1. y@shuw`ah, yesh-oo’-aw – Hebrew
    feminine passive participle of 3467; something saved, i.e. (abstractly) deliverance; hence, aid, victory, prosperity:–deliverance, health, help(-ing), salvation, save, saving (health), welfare.
  2. soteria, so-tay-ree’-ah
    feminine of a derivative of 4990 as (properly, abstract) noun; rescue or safety (physically or morally):–deliver, health, salvation, save, saving.

Spiritual Salvation is by grace through the acceptance of the sacrifice of Amanuwal  Ha’Mashyach, who died for our sins. To be free from sin and the penalty of sin which is death, one must accept the shed blood of Amanuwal  Ha’Mashyach as his atonement (payment for our sins).  Matthew 26:26-28; Romans 6:13,22; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Ephesians 1:6-7, 5:2; 1 Peter 2:21-25; Titus 2:14; 1 John 1:7; 2:2; Hebrews  1:2-3, 7:23-28, 9:14-15, 10:11-12 and 26-31;  Revelation 1:5. Yahuwah has extended His grace to those who keep His LAW and are called according to his purpose.

“But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”  Matthew 24:13

“He that overcomes shall inherit all things.”  Revelation 2:17.

Grace does not give a person the right to do as he pleases.  , Romans 3:22-28, James 2:17-26, and Jude 4.  We are not saved while we are mortal flesh, instead, we are in the process of being saved.  1 Corinthians 9:25; 1 Timothy 6:12; As long as we are flesh, our names can be removed from the book of life thus, we can fail.  2 Timothy 4:6-8; 1 Peter 5:4; Hebrews 12:1; Revelation 3:5, 17:8, 20:2, 21:27 and 22:19  We must be born again (born of Ruwach, i.e. become Ruwach) before we can inherit the kingdom, which is to come. John 3:1-13; 1 Peter 1:3-5; 1 John 5:1-6

1 John 5:18  “We know that whosoever is born of Yahuwah sinneth not; but he that is begotten of Yahuwah keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.”

Only Amanuwal  has been born again; he is the first of the first-born.  John 1:15-18; 3:16-18; Acts 13:33-37; Hebrews 1:5-6, 5:5; 1 John 4:9; Revelation 1:5

Yahuwah’s plan of salvation is through Amanuwal  Ha’Mashyach.  The master plan can be understood through observing Yahuwah’s Kadosh Sabbaths and Feast Days.  Leviticus 23; Numbers 28 and 29.  The sacrificial blood offerings as well as the ritual laws which dealt with Temple worship are no longer performed as they were fulfilled by the death of Amanuwal .  John 1:29; Hebrews Chapters 8 through 10; Mark 12:32-33.  Today, we must be willing to be a living sacrifice by giving up our wants and/or desires that are contrary to following Yahuwah and Amanuwal .  Romans 12:1; Hebrews 13:15-16; 1 Peter 2:5

9 Weekly Sabbath:  The weekly seventh-day, Sabbath of Rest (aka Saturday) was kept in both the Old and New Testament Scriptures, Exodus 20:8-11; Mark 1:21, 2:23- 28; Luke 4:16  It is a special Kadosh day to Yahuwah as it is called a Sabbath of Rest,  and not just a Sabbath or break.

Exodus 31:15 –  Six days may work be done; but in the seventh <sh’biy`iy> is the sabbath<shabbath> of rest <shabbathown>, Kadosh <Kadosh> to Yahuwah: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath <shabbath> day, he shall surely be put to death.

  1. shabbath, shab-bawth’ – intensive from 7673; intermission, i.e (specifically) the Sabbath:–(+ every) sabbath.
  2. shabbathown, shab-baw-thone’ – from 7676; a sabbatism or special holiday:–rest, sabbath.

The Sabbath is a sign between Yahuwah and His people and it is a commanded day of rest and worship, Ex. 31:12-17, Ezekiel 20:20; Hebrews 4:1-11 Yahuwah blessed it and made it Kadosh as a memorial of His creation because He rested on that day. Genesis 2:2-3   Yahuwah finished the heavens and the earth and everything in them in six days and rested the seventh day and blessed it and sanctified it.  The Sabbath commemorates creation. Genesis 2:1-3 and is kept from sundown to sundown (even to even), Leviticus 23:32 and not from midnight to midnight.  That is the seventh day:  from sundown the sixth day (Friday night) until sundown Sabbath (Saturday) night.  Genesis 1:5; Lev 23:32  Notice that during the creation in Genesis 1, the days began with the evening, at the setting of the sun.  The Sabbath restricts any servile work and thus is not to be profaned by cooking (including warming up via microwave, crock pots, etc), buying or selling (including not eating at restaurants for even the maid and man servants who were not believers were not to work for you). Exodus 16:22-23 and 35:1-3   We also should not be seeking our own pleasures or conversations, i.e. persons who are not followers of Amanuwal  should not be a part of our Sabbath conversations or gatherings unless they are interested in following the Father and Savior; otherwise they cause our thoughts and conversations to be steered toward worldly matters instead of Spiritual matters and growth.  Amos 8:5 and Isaiah 58:13-14

The Sabbath should be completely dedicated to worshipping Yahuwah and Amanuwal  Ha’Mashyach. Exodus16:23; 20:8-11, 31:12-17, 34:21; 35:1-3; Nehemiah 8:5-12; 10:31, 13:15-22; Jeremiah 17:19-27; Isaiah 66:21-24; John 2:15; Act 16:13. We should also blow the trumpet to assemble the congregation. Numbers 10:1-3   By keeping the Sabbath Kadosh and not profaning it, we show our obedience to His will; otherwise, we show disobedience.  Ezekiel 20:13-20, 22:8-26; Psalms 37:4-23; Romans 16:17-19; 1 Timothy 6:1-8; Lamentations 1:7, 2:5-9, 14, 19, 5:5 Colossians 2:16-17  The Sabbath was still kept after the death of Amanuwal  by His Apostles and disciples.  Acts 13:3, 14, 26-27, 42-44, 14:18-21, 16:13, 18, 17:2-3, 18:4, 19, 19:8, 21:24, 22:3, 24:11-14, 28:23.

10 New Moons/Months:   Yahuwah’s months are determined by the new moons (thin crescent – Gesenius’ Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon – chodesh 2320 from 2318 chadesh – to be new… the signification of newness appears to proceed from that of a sharp polished splendid sword comparing 2319 chadash new:–fresh, new thing in 2 Sam 21:16) at Jerusalem and not from individual locations.  Yahuwah determines the length of months, not man.  For even during the time of the flood, the months were all 30 days in length and not a fixed 29 and 30 as practiced by the Jews.  Genesis 8

Deuteronomy 16:1…observe the month of Abib (Strong’s Number 24 – green; a young ear of grain, barley to be exact.)  Exodus 9:31-32   Where are we to look for the green ears of barley?  Deuteronomy. 16:1; Genesis 1:14; Psalms 104:19.  Isaiah 2:3 …out of Zion will come forth the Law, and the word of Yahuwah from JERUSALEM.  That is where we must find the green ears.  There is an organization, the Karaites, who search the area of Jerusalem and Palestine to see if the barley will be ready for the harvest.  This finding determines when the first month of Yahuwah’s New Year is to be declared.  This will be a sign forever as all things shall go forth from Jerusalem.  If we are to be unified worldwide, we are to observe HIS Feasts at HIS appointed time from Jerusalem.    Isaiah 66:23; Exodus 12:1

The day of the new moon is not a Sabbath, but we should worship as a family on that day. 2 Chronicles 2:4, 8:13, 31:3; Ezekiel 45:17, 46:1-3  Worship (07812. shachah a primitive root; to depress, i.e. prostrate (especially reflexive, in homage to royalty or Yahuwah):–bow (self) down, crouch, fall down (flat), humbly beseech, do (make) obeisance, do reverence, make to stoop, worship).  We are instructed not buy and/or sell on the day of the New Moon.  Amos 8:5

Those who believe that they should “observe” the new moon “locally”, have kept the Kadosh days on different days than our Jerusalem brethren and surely that cannot be correct.  Yahuwah only hallows one day for each commanded convocation.

The scriptural day begins and ends with sunset, Leviticus 23:32; Mark 1:32.  We should practice this now as we will be doing this in the millennium.  Isaiah 66:21-24; Colossians 2:16-17.

11 Wave Sheaf Ceremony:  Leviticus 23:9-14 …And Yahuwah spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest unto the priest:
And he shall wave the sheaf before Yahuwah, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it.  And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf an he lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto Yahuwah.  And the meat offering thereof shall be two tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto Yahuwah for a sweet savor: and the drink offering thereof shall be of wine, the fourth part of an hin.  And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor green ears, until the selfsame day that ye have brought an offering unto your Aluhym: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

The word translated “wave” is from Strong’s #5130 and should be better translated “lifted” or elevated”.  The word “sheaf” is from Strong’s #6016 and should be better translated “omer”, which is a dry measure, approximately 1 1/2 to 3 quarts.

Please note that this scripture does not say that this “Sabbath” must fall during the Days of Unleavened Bread, but when one searches the historical fulfillment, you find that Amanuwal  was “lifted” up to the Father (ascension) on the 1st day of the week and that day occurred “during” the DUB.  That means that Leviticus 23:11 can be understood as the “weekly” Sabbath that may or may not fall during the DUB.  On the other hand it is important that “the day” AFTER, the weekly Sabbath, MUST fall within the DUB.

This ceremony has great importance to Yahuwah.

  1. The barley (green ears, i.e. Abib), the “first fruit” of the spring harvest, which represents Amanuwal , has to be at the proper state, so that the kernels can be harvested and elevated before Yahuwah.
  2. This ceremony is the determining factor for the beginning of Yahuwah’s New Year.  The first new moon (month) of a new year can only be declared if the barley in Jerusalem/Judea is ready to be harvested for the “wave sheaf” ceremony.
  3. This day symbolizes the day Amanuwal  ascended to Yahuwah’s throne (after His resurrection which was at the end of the weekly Sabbath day), on the first day of the week, which we call Sunday.
  4. The day this ceremony is held, ensures the correct counting to the next festival, the Feast of Weeks, also called Pentecost.  Leviticus  23:15-16… And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven Sabbaths shall be complete:  Even unto the morrow after the seventh Sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto Yahuwah.

Here we are instructed to “count” FROM THIS DAY (the day of the wave sheaf) 50 days (Pentecost means 50).  The Feast of Weeks is the only festival that does not have a set date, i.e. … on the 14th day of the first month is the Passover…, on the 1st day of the 7th month is the Feast of Trumpets… etc.  Instead we are commanded to “count”.  This Feast Day will always fall on the first day of the week.  Those who advocate a fixed date such as Sivan 6, the 6th day of the 3rd month, are not following the law and thus, are wrong.

12 Old Covenant Passover – A Night Much to be Observed:  Leviticus 23:4-5 and Numbers 9:1-2.  Exodus 12:3-5 … on the tenth day of the 1st month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one for each household…  Exodus 12:6  … and you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month and all the assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it IN THE EVENING.(See New Moons for the determination of New Year and its months.)

            Until – Strong’s 5704 – Gesenius Lexicon p. 606 (1) while, so long as …”during a moment”

            Day – Strong’s 3117 – Gesenius p. 341 (1) the day… heat of the day… to be warm…


That means it was NOT to be kept until the thirteenth day until sunset, but it was to be kept up until the 14th daylight period, and then it was to be killed IN THE EVENING OF THE 14TH.   We must be able to understand the meaning of IN THE EVENING.  It is a translation from the original “bane Ha-Erebim”.

“In the evening” Strong’s 996–Gesenius p.114 interval, space between (1) between …

“bane Ha-Erebim” and “eth ereb” – Strong’s 6153 – Gesenius p. 652 (1) evening, …at evening… the two evenings… 

The Pentateuch and Haftorahs by J.H. Hertz, p. 254 tells us that the Jews recognized two evenings.  The first evening began at 3:00 PM, at which time the evening sacrifice was killed.  The second was at 6:00 PM or just before sunset.  From this we learn that the Passover lamb was killed on the 14thbetween 3:00 PM and sunset.


Read Numbers 9:1-14, do not misunderstand it.  These scriptures deal with SACRIFICING THE LAMB, not eating it.  Now look at the words (keep and kept).

Keep – Strong’s 6213 – Gesenius pp. 657-658  to labor, to work about any thing; (2) to make, to produce by labor (f) to make or prepare a victim to be offered… 

As you now see a better translation for “keep” or “kept”, would be “sacrifice”.  Re-read the scripture replacing keep and kept with the word sacrifice.  Also read II Chronicles 35:11-14, the priest worked UNTIL NIGHT.  Therefore the sacrificing of the lamb could not have happened on the evening of the 13th day of the month.


The Israelites were instructed to take the blood of the sacrificed lamb and place it on their door posts and lentils and afterwards roast it and eat it with bitter herbs and unleavened bread and REMAIN IN THEIR HOUSES UNTIL THE MORNING.  Exodus 12:8-9, 40-43   …It is a night much to be observed unto Yahuwah for bringing them out of the land of Egypt; this is that night of Yahuwah to be observed of all the children of Israel throughout their generations.


What are we commanded to observe?  Exodus 12:8  Then they must eat the meat (lamb) in that night; roasted with fire with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.  This event took place after sunset on the 14th day which was the beginning of the 15th day.  Then in the morning (morrow), they started leaving Egypt and finished borrowing from the Egyptians because they had started borrowing before the death plague.  Exodus 11:1-3; 12:11-14, 34-36 and Numbers 33:3-4


Yahuwah made special arrangements for those who were not able to keep the Passover in the first month for reason of defilement (dead body) or on a long journey:  Numbers 9:6-11.  They could keep it in the second month on the 14th day followed by the seven days of Unleavened Bread. 2 Chronicles 30:1-3, 13, and 21-23.  Yahuwah does not provide a second Passover for any other reason.

13 Amanuwal ‘s Memorial:  This Memorial Service in the New Testament era is the annual observance of our Savior’s, death. This Memorial is to be observed on the evening of the 14th day of the scriptural month of Abib (1st Month), soon after sundown (even), at the beginning of the day (evening), just as Amanuwal  instituted.  Amanuwal  died on the afternoon of the 14th (approximately the ninth hour – 3:00 PM) at the same time (between the two evenings on the 14th) the Passover Lamb (Sacrifice or Victim) was being killed by the Israelites.

A meal is eaten prior to the taking of the new symbols as admonished by Shaul (Paul) to the Corinthians in 1 Corinthians 11:21 and 34 as well as by Amanuwal  as reference in the scriptures below.  This is not the Passover Meal – it is only a meal to be eaten so that we do not arrive for Amanuwal ‘s Memorial hungry or drunk.  This meal can be used as a teaching tool for the children, since they are not able to partake of Amanuwal ‘s Memorial.

By partaking of the New Covenant Symbols, we give witness that we accept the shed blood of Ha’Mashyach for our sins.  Numbers 28:16; Luke 22:15-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29.  Work may be done on this day. It is not a Sabbath of rest, Deuteronomy 16:3-4; Matthew 27:62; Mark 15:42; Luke 23:54; John 19:14

The symbols that Amanuwal  instituted in the New Testament Memorial are unleavened bread (matzoth) made up of only whole grain wheat which symbolizes the purity and sinless body of our Savior.   Leviticus 2:11; 1 Corinthians 10:16; Exodus 12:5; White flour is a 20th Century man-made product.  If you purchase unleavened bread (matzoth) from your local grocery store, make sure you purchase the ones that STATE “to be used” or “can be used” for Passover. The other matzoths can be used during the Days of Unleavened Bread because they are unleavened, but not of whole grain wheat only.  Our lamb was without blemish and just as unleavened bread was eaten during the Old Testament Passover, so shall we have unleavened bread in the New.  Exodus 23:18

The content of  the cup was never specified!  We were only told that it was the “fruit of the vine”.  The fruit of the vine is wine or grape juice as both are unleavened.  After the juice of the grape is boiled, it is no longer leavened.  After the fermentation process is completed in the process of wine making, the wine is no longer leavened.  Matthew 26:27-29; Isaiah 65:8-9; Deuteronomy 32:14;  Mark 14:12-25; Luke 22:12-23; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26.  Exodus 12:18; Exodus 34:25.

Because the scriptures do not specifically state that the cup was filled with grape juice or wine, we have chosen to use wine because the scriptures do not show that the people (Yahuwah’s children) ever drank grape juice.  When referring to drinking of the vine, scriptures always points out wine (Hebrew – yayin or Greek – oinos).  However, if you cannot obtain wine for the Memorial, you can use grape juice. (example:  if incarcerated.)  The wine and/or grape juice is to be of the choice or purple grape.

Soreq – Strong’s 8321 Gen 49:11 and Isaiah 5:2, or sowreq {so-rake’}; and (feminine) soreqah {so- ray-kaw’}; from 8319 in the sense of redness (compare 8320); a vine stock (properly, one yielding purple grapes, the richest variety):–choice(-st, noble) wine. Also look at Gesenius p. 792  …a nobler kind of vine…of dark color…

A foot washing ceremony precedes the takings of the symbols, John 13, which is done to show our willingness to serve one another.  For more details, please see article page.

14 Feast of Unleavened Bread:  The 1st Day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread coincides with the eating of the Passover – Victim.  It is a day of feasting and is observed from the evening (beginning) of 15th to the 21st (inclusive) of Yahuwah’s first month (Abib) of the year and is considered a pilgrimage feast, for we are to travel to THE place chosen by Yahuwah which is Jerusalem.  2 Kings 23:23; 2 Chronicles 30:1, 2, 5; 35:1, 18; Luke 2:41; John 2:13, 23; 11:54  Any other place is of our choosing.  We should ask Yahuwah’s blessing on the site chosen by us; however, it does NOT replace Jerusalem.  Deuteronomy 12 and 14  Amanuwal  is our example.  Exodus 34:23; Luke 2:43

The death of the firstborn plague passed over Israel on the evening (beginning) of the 15th at the time the Israelites were eating the Passover.  Exodus12:13-14; Lev 23:5; Numbers 28:16; Deuteronomy 16:1; Ezekiel 45:21; 1 Corinthians 5:7-8, 11:23 (Also, see #26 for Tithing) Although it is named the Feast of Unleavened Bread, we should remove all leavening agents and food products with leavening in them (read all labels carefully) for the Scriptures tell us to cleanse our homes of ALL leavening.  Exodus 12:19 and 13:7   These days symbolize removing sin out of our lives, thus removing all leavening no matter how small, should be important to us because leaven represents sin.  The wordBread should make us focus on the sacrifice of Amanuwal  and thus eating it every day reminds us that we need His sacrifice and that is a major reason we keep these days.

The first day of the Days of Unleavened Bread is to be kept in observance of the day Israel left Egypt (a commemoration of our leaving our old lives behind after Immersion).  Exodus 13:42   It is a day of Feasting.   See Exodus 12:16 …And in the first day there shall be an Kadosh convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an Kadosh convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them,save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.  Exodus 12:39

Although there is to be no servile work done (work for hire or occupation), they are not called Sabbaths of Rest (Sabbath Sabbathown) contrasted to the weekly Sabbath and Day of Atonement:  Trumpets (Leviticus 23:24-25), Atonement (Leviticus 16:30-31 23:27-32).

However, the first and last days of the Feast of Unleavened bread are still very important to Yahuwah, and we are commanded to keep them throughout all our generations.  From the evening of the 15th until the 21st day of the month, we are to eat unleavened bread with or without our meals, Leviticus 23:6; Exodus 12:14-17, 23:15; Deuteronomy 16:15.  Prior to and during this week, we should be aware of the physical and Spiritual reasoning for cleansing ourselves of everything that corrupts, i.e. false teachings, deeds and thoughts which all lead to sin. 1 Corinthians 5:6-9; Matthew 16:12; Mark 8:14-15; Luke 12:1; Acts 20:5-7.

Exodus 12:15-20; Leviticus 23:7-8; Numbers 28:17-25; Acts 20:6-7.  We are to use this week as well as the rest of the year to worship Yahuwah and examine ourselves so that we can work on  removing sin from our lives.  Exodus 5:1; 1 Corinthians 5:8.  “Become ye perfect even as your father in heaven is perfect…”

15 Feast of Pentecost:  The Feast of Pentecost (Shavuot) or Feast of Weeks is also a pilgrimage feast and is to be observed approximately seven weeks after Yahuwah’s Passover, beginning the count with the day after the weekly Sabbath, that is the Sunday (the first day of the week) that falls during the days of Unleavened Bread. Joshua 5:10-12, NEB.  Exodus 34:22; Deuteronomy 16:10, 16; 2 Chronicles 8:13  Seven weeks are to be completed.

  1. shabuwa`, shaw-boo’-ah or shabuan {shaw-boo’-ah}; also (feminine) shbu.ah {sheb-oo-aw’}; properly, passive participle of 7650 as a denominative of 7651; literal, sevened, i.e. a week (specifically, of years):–seven, week.

The count does not begin the day after the 1st Day of Unleavened Bread as that day is not called a Sabbath Sabbathtown.  (See #13 Above)  The Feast of Weeks or Pentecost is always observed on the first day of the week, Leviticus 23:9-21; Num 28:6; Acts 2.  It is observed as the memorial of the day Amanuwal  sent the Comforter (Ruwach Kadosh) to His Disciples and those who were assembled at Jerusalem.  Luke 24:49; John 14:26, 15:26; Acts 1:4-8, 2:1-18, 20:16

Another important ceremony takes place on the Feast of Weeks (Pentecost) in the Tanakh. Lev. 23:17You shall bring from your dwellings two loaves of bread to be waved, made of two tenths of an ephah; they shall be of fine flour, they shall be baked with leaven, as firstfruits to Yahuwah.  This scripture tells us that the loaves are equal in size, baked with leaven (sin), and that they are the FIRSTFRUITS unto Yahuwah.  These first fruits are also mentioned at the last trumpet in Rev. 14:1-5.  Lev 23:18 and 19 tells us that a sin offering had to accompany these loaves due to the fact that sin (leaven) was present.  Verse 20 And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the firstfruits as a wave offering before Yahuwah, with the two lambs; they shall be Kadosh to Yahuwah for the priest. The priest is Amanuwal .

06944 – from 6942; a sacred place or thing; rarely abstract, sanctity:–consecrated (thing), dedicated (thing), hallowed (thing), holiness, (X most) Kadosh (X day, portion, thing), saint, sanctuary.

In connection with the above, please read Revelation 14:1-5.  These verses show the Spiritual significance of the two loaves.  Also known as the Feast of Firstfruits, this feast pictures the harvest of souls (the firstfruits) unto Yahuwah.  Romans 8:23, 11:16, 16:5; 1 Corinthians 15:20-23, 16:15; James 1:18.  The firstfruits are the resurrected Saints.

Also review Section 11 – Wave Sheaf Ceremony which is a foreshadowing of the ascension of Amanuwal  to the Father.  Lev. 23:10-11.

This fulfillment of this Feast has direct ties to the fulfillment of the Feast of Trumpets.

16 Feast of Trumpets:  The Feast of Trumpets (Memorial of the Blowing of Trumpets) falls on the first day of Yahuwah’s seventh month, the day of the new moon declared by observation from Jerusalem.   Leviticus 23:23-25; Numbers 29:1-6   It is the first of the Fall Kadosh Days called a “Special Rest” (Sabbathtown)

  1. shabbathown, shab-baw-thone’ – from 7676; a sabbatism or special holiday:–rest, sabbath.

You can read the details of this event represented by this Feast in Rev. 8:1-2 and in our article Feast of Trumpets – Spiritual, Past, and Future.  We read about the 7th seal being opened and are introduced to 7 angels with 7 trumpets.  In verse 6 we are told that “the 7 angels which have the 7 trumpets, prepare themselves to sound.”

Verse 7 – the first angel sounded and so forth.  In Rev. 9:1-4 the fifth angel blows the trumpet.   Then in verse 5, we are told that this event lasts “five months”.  This is proof that all of the seven trumpets are not all blown on the actual day (in one day) of the Feast of Trumpets.  According to time (Starting in the Fall September or October), we could be at least in the 12th month (February or March) of Yahuwah’s sacred year.  At this time, two more trumpets are blown.

Verse 13 – the sixth angel blows his trumpet “a third part of men” were slain.  We are surely in the first few months of Yahuwah’s New Year (Spring).  Chapter 10 tells us in verse 6, “there should be time no longer”.  Time is running out on Satan and Man’s rule.

Verse 15 – “the seventh angel sounded… The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Sovereign and of his Mashyach (Messiah); and He shall reign for ever and ever”.

Read 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17.   The dead saints will be raised incorruptible.  Those who are alive and have His Ruwach Kadosh (Holy Spirit) will be changed at the twinkling of an eye.  They will all become immortal (born of the Ruwach (Spirit)).  They will then receive their reward for overcoming and being faithful until the end. 1 Corinthians 15:22-23, 51-53; 1 Peter  5:4; Revelation  22:12

Rev. 14:1  And I looked, and, lo, a lamb stood on mount Zion, and with Him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.  The resurrection has taken place, the Lamb is with 144,000.  (See the end of verse 4 …being the firstfruits unto Aluhym and to the Lamb.

Now we look at another ceremony in the Tanakh that connects these two events.  It takes place on the Feast of Weeks (Lev. 23:15-16)  – See Section 15 Above

Amanuwal  returns when the 7th trumpet sounds.  The fulfillment of this day will happen over a period of time and not in one day.  It should remind us to keep our thoughts on things above.  Luke 21:27-31.  Just as we blow trumpets and/or the shofar on each Sabbath for the gathering of the assembly, so shall the seventh trumpet be blown for the gathering of the saints at Amanuwal ‘s return.   Numbers 1:1-10; Psalms 47:5, 81:3-4; Joel 2:1

17 Day of Atonement:  The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), has three major components.  First, it is the only fast that is commanded by Yahuwah, and it is to be observed on the 10th day of the 7th month (for proper determination of this day see #10 New Moon).  Leviticus 23:27-32  As you can see in verse 32, this day is a Sabbath Sabbathtown.  Leviticus 16:29-34  So, how do we afflict and humble ourselves physically?  By fasting and prayer.  Psa 35:13, 69:10; Isa 58:5-6; Dan 9:3

Hebrew: 06685. tsowm or tsom {tsome}; from from 6684; a fast: –fast(-ing).

Second, this day pictures the putting away of Satan into the bottomless pit for 1000 years after the second coming of Amanuwal. Revelation 20:1-3   This act enables mankind to be AT-ONE with their creator.  Webster says that, to atone means to set at one, to join in one, or to form by uniting.

Read Leviticus 16:2-34.  The third major component of this Kadosh (Holy) day is the Old Covenant annual ceremony that was performed on this day by the High Priest.  Most of it is self-explanatory.  There are some difficult to understand verses, which we will explain.  Verse 5 – two goats are taken from the congregation of Israel for a sin offering.  These two goats are presented before Yahuwah at the door of the Tent of Meeting.  Verse 8 – The high priest would casts lots for the two goats, one lot for a sacrifice to Yahuwah and the other lot for AZAZEL.  Some translations translate this Hebrew word as “scapegoat”, which has a meaning of “one who bears the blame or guilt for others”, but this is not a correct translation of the word Azazel.  Azazel is another name for Satan the Adversary.  The casting of lots is a solemn appeal to Yahuwah to decide a matter brought before HIM.  Verse 9 – The goat on which the lot for Yahuwah’s sacrifice fell is prepared for a sin offering.  It represents the sacrifice of Amanuwal , who was also sacrificed for the payment of our sins.  Verse 10 – The other goat, the Azazel goat, stands before Yahuwah to make atonement upon it, and is sent into the wilderness.  This represents the future putting away of Satan. Revelation 20:1-3  We now skip to verses 20 and 21 of Leviticus 16.  The high priest lays both hands on the head of the live goat and confesses over him all the sins of the children of Israel, and sends it away into the wilderness by the hand of a fit man.  Verse 22 – This goat carries all their sins to a solitary place, and the man releases it in the desert.  Verse 26 – The man who released the live goat, Azazel, must wash his garments and bathe his body in water before he can return to the camp because he is considered unclean.

This annual Kadosh (Holy) Day is also mentioned in Acts 27:9 by the Apostle Shaul (Paul).  The fast mentioned here is referring to the Day of Atonement.

Greek:  3521. nesteia from 3522; abstinence (from lack of food, or voluntary and religious); specially, the fast of the Day of Atonement:– fast(-ing).

18 Feast of Tabernacles:  The Feast of Tabernacles (Feast of Harvest) is to be observed, beginning on the 15th day of Yahuwah’s seventh month and ending on the 21st day of the same month as a preview of the Kingdom of Yahuwah and the Millennium rule of Amanuwal  and the Saints, Exodus 23:16-17; Leviticus 23:33-43; Zechariah 14:16-19. This is a pilgrimage feast. Deuteronomy 16:1 This Feast  points to a time of peace, prosperity and true happiness for all mankind.  The laws of Yahuwah will be enforced.  The first day is a commanded assembly and a Kadosh convocation for it is also “Special Sabbath” (Shabbatown).  Exodus 34:22-23; Leviticus 23:39; Numbers 29:12  Amanuwal  set an example for us by observing the Feast of Tabernacles during His human life.  John 7:1-36 We are also told in the Kadosh Scriptures that ALL people will observe the Feast of Tabernacles during the 1,000 year reign of Ha’Mashyach and the Saints.  He will establish the Kingdom of Yahuwah on this earth.  This Kingdom will be set up by Amanuwal  Ha’Mashyach at His Second Coming. At that time righteousness will be established and this earth will be rebuilt into Utopia, Isaiah 11:1-10, 65:25; Hosea 2:18; Matthew 6:10; Hebrew 4:1. (Also, see #26 for Tithing to see how one finances the trip)

19 Last Great Day:  The Feast of Tabernacles is followed by an eighth day, called the Last Great Day.  John 7:37-39 After the Millennial Rule of Amanuwal  and the Saints, there will be a second resurrection to physical life some to everlasting death (those that had their chance) and the others to live.  The Last Great Day is a preview to the time when, all who have not had an opportunity to be saved, will be taught the truth of Yahuwah and given the chance to repent.  Ezekiel 37:1-14; Revelation 20:5, 11-15; Hebrews 6:4; Matthew 25:32  If they choose not to obey, they too will be thrown into the lake of fire for eternal death.  Those that repent to everlasting life.

This day is to be observed by holding a Kadosh convocation and is a Shabbathtown.  Leviticus 23:36-38; Numbers 29:35; John 7:37-38.  After the period of approximately one hundred years, and after the earth has been purified (burned with fire), a new heaven and a new earth will be brought forth as New Jerusalem and Father Yahuwah will dwell here on earth, Isaiah 66:22; Revelation 21:1.

20 Hell:  The Scriptures teach punishment for the wicked that is a complete destruction (eternal death) in the lake of fire (Gehenna), Revelation 20:14-14, 21:8; Malachi 4:1-3; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10; Revelation 20:14-15, 21:8, but the Scriptures do not teach an eternal torment in an ever-burning hell-fire for mankind, 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10; Psalms 37:20-22; Isaiah 33:12; Matthew 25:46; Jude.  The cities mentioned in Jude 7 were burned and cannot be rebuilt, the fire is not burning today.   Jude 7   The word “hell” is the Hebrew word “sheol” in the Tanakh and it means grave or pit.  In the NT, the word used is hades which also means the grave.

  1. sh’owl, sheh-ole’ – or shol {sheh-ole’}; from 7592; Hades or the world of the dead (as if a subterranean retreat), including its accessories and inmates:–grave, hell, pit.
  2. hades, hah’-dace – from 1 (as negative particle) and 1492; properly, unseen, i.e. “Hades” or the place (state) of departed souls:–grave, hell

21 Dietary Law:  We adhere to the clean food laws in Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14.   They remain in effect for all of those who want to be a part of the family of Yahuwah in this age, 2 Corinthians 6:16-18.  The body is the temple of Ruwach Ha’Kadosh. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.   Thus having been cleansed and set apart by Ruwach Ha’Kadosh and faith of Amanuwal , it is important to be clean inside as well as out.  There is a difference between the clean and unclean and the Kadosh and profaned.  2 Corinthians 6:16-18  We are to be an example to the world through our sanctification before Yahuwah.  1 Timothy 3:7; Matthew 5:48; 1 Corinthians 3:17; 1 Peter 1:15-16; Revelation 21:27.

Take extra precautions when eating at restaurants and purchasing items from stores as you usually do not know what is in the food nor how it was prepared.  Do not be afraid to ask.  Example:  When you order fried foods, you do not know if your clean fish was fried in the same oil as shrimp or catfish.  Read labels:  most beef sausage is made with pork casings.  Search out all things that you may be approved by Yahuwah.  Always ask Yahuwah to make the food and drink pure for your body before partaking of it.

22 Anointing:  For us today, laying on of hands and anointing with oil, by the elders of the assembly, in the Name of Amanuwal  Ha’Mashyach for the healing of illness, is commanded.  James 5:14-20, Mark 6:13.  Laying on of hands is also done for ordinations.  1 Timothy 5:21-22

23 The Assembly:  Members of the assembly are to be called and chosen by Yahuwah.  After repentance, Immersion, and reception of Ruwach Ha’Kadosh of Yahuwah, they are grafted into the body of Ha’Mashyach.  We are not saved now nor born again after this process as explained to Nicodemus.  We are not born again or saved until we become Ruwach at our resurrection or change. John 3:3-8; 1 Corinthians 15:52; I Peter 1:23   Throughout the scriptures, we are commanded to gather together for worshipping on the weekly Sabbath, the Spring Festivals and the Fall Kadosh Days.   Exodus 12:16; Leviticus 23:3-36; Numbers 28:18-26, 29:1-12

24 Divorce and Remarriage:  Matthew 19:9; Mark 10:19 The New Testament does not make provisions for divorce except for illicit sexual activity outside of the marriage. Matthew 19:9; I Corinthians 7:10-11  Even then we are to forgive.  Matthew 18:21-22  Although divorce is allowed for this purpose, remarriage is not.  We should do our best to reconcile the marriage.  Marriage is supposed to be for life!  Remarriage is allowed only after the death of the previous mate.  Matthew 19:3-9 (Read the entire chapter.)  However, if an unbelieving mate leaves the believer, the believer is no longer held to the bondage of the law of marriage.  1 Corinthians 7:15  Only then is a believer allowed to remarry without the death of a the previous mate.  If a believer leaves his/her mate, he/she is not allowed to divorce or remarry.  Only a separation is allowed.  An unequally yoked marriage usually occurs when one spouse is called after marriage.  By this world’s standards, you are not married or committed to a person until you exchange wedding vows in some type of ceremony, but according to Yahuwah’s standards, you are married at engagement when the two make a vow before Yahuwah, which is not done today. Today’s engagements are not taken as vows.  Matthew 19:6 states …Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore Yahuwah hath joined together, let not man put asunder.  Yahuwah hates divorce!  Malachi 2:15-16; Matthew 1:18-19, 5:27-32; Mark 10:19   Writ of divorcement was allowed by Moses because of the hardness…

(sklerokardia Strong’s 4641) feminine of a compound of 4642 and 2588; hard-heartedness, i.e. (specially), destitution of (Spiritual) perception:–hardness of heart.

…of the people’s heart, but from the beginning it was not allowed.  These are the words of Ha’Mashyach.  Matthew 19:8   Yahuwah is the one who decides if marriages are bound in heaven.  Matthew 19:6;  Mark 10:9; I Corinthians 7:12-16

25 Unequally Yoked:  Yahuwah forbids a believer to marry someone that is not of the same faith as it brings confusion in a marriage.  A marriage between a believer and unbeliever is considered by Yahuwah, unequally yoked.  2 Corinthians 6:14-16  The two who do not agree religiously cannot walk the same path.  Deuteronomy 7:3-4; Amos 3:3; Proverbs 29:27; Ezra 9:1-4, 10:18; 1 Peter 2:9-10  Usually, an unbeliever will lead the believer into sin rather than away from sin.  Exodus 34:16; 1 Kings 11:2, 4   Genesis 6:1-5; Joshua 23:12-13 ; Nehemiah 10:29-30, 13:23-27; 1 Corinthians 7:39  Believers are to teach their children to marry according to the will of Yahuwah and not their own as marriage is to last for life.  If it is done according to Yahuwah’s will, it will last for he will bless it.  Genesis 2:24, 24:3-4, 28:1; Ezra 9:12; John 8:44; 1 Corinthians 7:39

26 Head-coverings:   In the Torah, there are no laws, statues or judgments on the subject of head-coverings.  The scriptures show where a woman covered her face to hide herself, but not in worship.  Genesis 24:65, 38:14-19; Ruth 3:15  Paul stated that the assembly of Yahuwah has no doctrine (1 Corinthians 11:16) on women wearing head coverings during worship or men having long hair, yet he did state that it is a shame for men to have long hair (v.14 ).  Of course this would not pertain to those who have taken a Nazarene vow.  All of us are to be covered with humility and righteousness.   Just as Amanuwal  is over the assembly (marriage relationship) so shall the husband be over the wife.  A woman is to have her own husband and be submissive to him in the marriage for there is authority therein.  Ephesians 5:22; Colossians 3:18 A woman’s submissiveness to the authority in the assembly is not to be treated differently from the submissiveness of a man when in the assembly.  1 Corinthians 16:16; Hebrews 13:17; 1 Peter 5:5  Yahuwah is not a respecter of persons (race, culture or gender) and neither should we be.  Deuteronomy 1:17, 16:19; 2 Chronicles 9:7; Proverbs 24:23, 28:21; Romans 2:11; Ephesians 6:9; Colossians 3:25; James 2:9

A head covering is likened unto a veil and Amanuwal  tore the veil in the temple at his sacrifice. Isaiah 25:7; Matthew 27:51; Mark 15:38; Luke 23:45; 2 Corinthians 3:14-18; Hebrews 6:19.  We are no longer divided from our Father by a veil.  Exodus 26:31-35  The veil has been removed from the eyes of ALL those who are called and chosen by Yahuwah, not just from the men.  Therefore, let us not judge one another on wearing a veil or not wearing a veil for there is no such commandment and Paul left it that way.  It is a choice (v.13)!  However, if one chooses to do something for Yahuwah, that same person should not chose partiality; thus, if a woman chooses to wear a veil, she must follow 1 Corinthians 11:6 which states covered – i.e. no hair is to be seen, she should be fully covered.

Covered is from the Greek word katakalupto, Strong’s number 2619 and is defined as “to cover wholly, to hide”.  That means no hats for a hat does not cover fully.

27 Women Ministers:  Only men are permitted to teach the assembly. 1 Corinthians 14:34-35; 1 Timothy 2:11-12.  There are many women in the assembly who do not have a husband at home to ask questions of as well as women with a lot of knowledge.  Titus 2:3-5 We prefer having open bible studies with a gentleman overseeing the process, so that all have a chance to ask questions and possibly help answer some.  This way we all can exhort one another.  By exhausting one subject at a time, the overall understanding is much clearer and defined.  We must all work out our own salvation.  We each have the responsibility to study the scriptures and not leave it totally to a man to teach us.  Jeremiah 17:5-7

28 Immortality:  Humans do not have an immortal soul.  Psalms 6:5; 115:17; Isaiah 26:19. The dead are unconscious/asleep in their graves until their resurrection.  Job 14:12-14; Dan 12:2; John 5:29; 1 Corinthians 15:51-56; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Hebrews 11:13, 39; Ezekiel 18:4, 20; Matthew 10:28  Immortality is a reward for the obedient.  John 17:2-3; Romans 2:7; 1 Corinthians 15:53-54; 2 Timothy 1:10. Immortality is made available ONLY through Amanuwal  Ha’Mashyach.  John 3:15, 17:2-3; 2 Timothy 1:10.  We and animals alike are living souls (nephesh).  This does not mean we have an immortal soul.  However, what separates us from the animals is that we have a human Ruwach dwelling within us that allows us to receive Yahuwah’s set apart power (Ruwach Kadosh) that imparts HIS knowledge to us.

29 Tithing:  Every member of the body of Ha’Mashyach is obligated by scriptural law to tithe (10 percent of his increase or revenue).  Proverbs 3:9; Leviticus 27:30-33; Numbers 18:25-28; Malachi 3:8-12; Matthew 23:23 1 Corinthians 9:1-25; 2 Corinthians 9:1-15.  The Kadosh Scriptures also teach a second tithe (used for Yahuwah’s Feasts), which every third year, Deuteronomy 14:22-29, is shared with the widows, orphans, etc. so that they too are able to keep Yahuwah’s Feasts.  Deuteronomy 26:12-17 also re-read Chapter 14.  Every third year, the Feasts can be held within your gates (city or town); otherwise, as stated before, they are pilgrimage feasts to Jerusalem.  It is a blessing to be able to honor Yahuwah with our substance.  It is a blessing to give. 2 Corinthians 9:7  Yahuwah will take care of our needs.

30 Satan:    The Scriptures teach the existence of a devil (Satan, Lucifer, Hillel), Genesis 3:1-15; Isaiah 14:12-20; Zechariah 3:1-2; Matthew 4:1-11; 1 Peter 5:8; Revelation 12:9.

Strongs # 01966. heylel, hay-lale’ – from 1984 (in the sense of brightness); the morning-star:–lucifer.

Satan was a Ruwach being whose pride was lifted up and as a result, he was cast out of heaven along with the angels (demons) who rebelled with him.  Isaiah 14:12-20; Ezekiel 28:13-19; Luke 10:18; Revelation 12:7-9.  The evil one (known as the adversary, Satan or the Devil) exists as a being.  He is the diety of this world.  Revelation 20:2-10.  Satan will be bound at the beginning of the Millennium then let loosed for a short season to deceive the world again.  Then after this great rebellion he will be bound forever in the bottomless pit.  Ezekiel 28:18-19; Romans 16:20.   It is Satan’s goal to thwart Yahuwah’s Kingdom from being set up, but he will not succeed.  Matthew 4:1-11; Isaiah 14:1-19; Ezekiel 28:16; Romans 16:20; Hebrews 2:14

31 Circumcision under the Old and New Covenants:    In the Old Testament, the first instruction we read regarding this subject is in Genesis 17:10-14 …every male child among you is to be circumcised… it shall become a sign of the covenant between me and you.  And a son of 8 days is circumcised by you… and an uncircumcised male child, who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, his life shall be cut off from his people – he has broken my covenant.

In the Old Covenant, to become a part of Israel, the foreigner had to be physically circumcised.  Exodus 12:44-49; Numbers 9:14, 15:15-16; Joshua 5:1-8  Once that was done, he was no longer a stranger, but an Israelite, for he had then taken up the Covenant of Yahuwah, and was to be counted as a brother.  Galatians 3:27-28 (See Immersion)

Physical circumcision is required by Yahuwah’s law for us today as a means to salvation, for it is circumcision of the heart. Joshua 5:5, Ezekiel 4:4-9; Acts 15:1-24; Romans 2:25-29; 3 (Entire Chapter)

Strong’s Hebrew #5243 naw-mal’ circumcise – a primitive root; to become clipped or (specifically) circumcised:–(branch to) be cut down (off).  circumcise

Strong’s Greek #4059 peritemno, per-ee-tem’-no, circumcise – from 4012 and the base of 5114; to cut around, i.e. (specially) to circumcise:–circumcise.

Now Yahuwah introduces a new dimension.  We read in Deuteronomy 10:16 Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiff-necked.

Deuteronomy 30:6 And Yahuwah thy Aluhym will circumcise thine heart and the heart of thy seed, to love Yahuwah thy Aluhym with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.

It is understood that physical circumcision is healthy and beneficial for the male child; therefore, we should follow the example of Amanuwal  and circumcise our male children on the eighth day of their life.  Genesis 17:10-14, 23-27, 21:4; Leviticus 12:3, 14:23; Luke 1:59, 2:21; Acts 7:8; Philippians 3:5

Circumcision of the flesh and heart shows our willingness to obey every word of Yahuwah with our entire being.  Deuteronomy 7:9, 8:3-6, 30:6-8; Jeremiah 4:4; Matthew 4:4, 6:19-20; Luke 4:4; Galatians 5:6; Ephesians 2:11-13; Philippians 3:3; 1 John 3:21-24

In conclusion, circumcision is taking off both the foreskins of a male’s flesh and of our stony hearts through repentance.  1 Corinthians 7:18-20; Galatians 5:6  We turn away from our former sinful lives (removing the foreskin) and start LIVING according to ALL of Yahuwah’s commandments, statutes and judgments.  This repentance and circumcision is not merely attending with an assembly once a week, but should produce an actual change in the way we live daily.  Acts 10:45-48 (See Immersion) 11:2-18; Romans 2:24-29; Galatians 6:12-15; Colossians 2:11-14

32 Tzitzits, Fringes, Tassels:   Yahuwah said to Moses, speak to the Israelite people and instruct them… Numbers 15:37-41 (Tanakh Translation)  Speak unto the children of Israel and bid them that they… (KJV) make for themselves fringes (Strong’s No. 6734) on the corners of their garments throughout the ages; let them attach a cord of blue (Strong’s No. 8504) to the fringe of each corner.   That shall be your fringe, look at it and recall all the commandments of Yahuwah and observe them, so that you do not follow your heart and eyes in your lustful surge.   Thus shall you be reminded to observe all My commandments and to be Kadosh to your Aluhym.  I, Yahuwah your Aluhym, who brought you out of the land of Egypt to be your Aluhym, I am Yahuwah your Aluhym.

Note:  The words that were translated here “Lord and God” were correctly translated into Yahuwah and Aluhym.

Deut 22:12 repeats this instruction, “You shall make tassels on the four corners of your garment with which you cover yourself…”

Here we have in the Torah (the Law) a clear instruction from Yahuwah to wear “tassels”.  We can also see that this includes the ladies and children, because there is one law for all.  Exodus 12:49  There shall be one law for the citizen and for the stranger who dwells among you.

There is another detail given.  These tassels must include a “cord of blue”.  After checking this number in the Gesenius Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon, you will see that this cannot be just any kind of blue (Techelet, Cerulean).  It must come from a specific mussel (helix), found in the Mediterranean sea with a blue shell.  This cord of blue can be purchased from several vendors online, but be careful to buy the one made from the mussel because some vendors do sell the blue cord that gets its color from the indigo plant and other forms of blue dyes.

We are not given instructions as to how the white and blue are to be interwoven, so you may braid them together as you prefer.

Now we take a look at the New Testament and the example our Savior has given us.  So much has been lost in the translations, but Yahuwah has provided the Shem Tob, the oldest known version in Hebrew, at this time, of the book of Matthew9:20.  Here we see that the word “hem” in the KJV comes from the same word (Strong’s No.6734) translated in the Old Testament “tzitzits”.  Furthermore, if you check the Jewish Bible by David H. Stern, you will see that he also translated “She touched the tzitzits on His robe”.

He is our example, He wore them, and so should we.

And for women:

Some people ask whether or not women should wear them, and while there are those who would say no, the commandment is fairly clear that it is for all of Yah’s people, and not just men. If you are new to this and choose to obey this commandment, DO NOT LET ANYONE (from YAHUWAH or otherwise) discourage you. Some WILL try to do so. This is an example of YAHUWAH vexing Ephraim in these last days (Isa. 11:13).

If we look at the Hebrew word for children, it is the word pronounced “bane”, and it means

BDB Definition:

1) son, grandson, child, member of a group

1a) son, male child

1b) grandson

1c) children (plural – male and female)

1d) youth, young men (plural)

1e) young (of animals)

1f) sons (as characterization, i.e. sons of injustice [for unrighteous men] or sons of God [for angels])

1g) people (of a nation) (plural)

1h) of lifeless things, i.e. sparks, stars, arrows (figuratively)

1i) a member of a guild, order, class


In the Ancient Hebrew Lexicon we also see son and daughter.(Nm) ( BN) – Son: One who continues the family line. [Hebrew and Aramaic; Transforms to when used in the possessive] [freq. 4925] |kjv: son, children, old, first, man, young, stranger, people| {str: 1121, 1123, 1247}


(Nf2) ( B-NT) – Daughter: Also a village that resides outside of the city walls as the daughter of the city. [df: ] [freq. 588] |kjv: daughter, town, village, first, apple, branches, children, company, eye, old| {str: 1323}


Also in Strong’s


a son (as a builder of the family name), in the widest sense (of literal and figurative relationship, including grandson, subject, nation, quality or condition, etc., (like H1, H251, etc.): – + afflicted, age, [Ahoh-] [Ammon-] [Hachmon-] [Lev-]ite, [anoint-]ed one, appointed to, (+) arrow, [Assyr-] [Babylon-] [Egypt-] [Grec-]ian, one born, bough, branch, breed, + (young) bullock, + (young) calf, X came up in, child, colt, X common, X corn, daughter, X of first, + firstborn, foal, + very fruitful, + postage, X in, + kid, + lamb, (+) man, meet, + mighty, + nephew, old, (+) people, + rebel, + robber, X servant born, X soldier, son, + spark, + steward, + stranger, X surely, them of, + tumultuous one, + valiant[-est], whelp, worthy, young (one), youth.


So, from this, we can see that this word “bane” can mean both son and daughter, and it is used to mean both son and daughter in several places throughout scripture. The question is, does it mean just son, or both, son and daughter, in this instance? It is obvious that the translators thought it meant both in this instance; otherwise they would have chosen a word other than children to use, such as son… Something else to consider is what the purpose of the command is…. According to scripture, the purpose of the command is so that you will see the tzitzit and remember the Torah. Do only men need to remember Yahuwah’s Torah, or do both men and women need to remember his Torah?


Remember, there is only one Torah for both the native born and the stranger.


Exodus 12:49 “There is one Torah for the native-born and for the stranger who sojourns among you.”


Leviticus 24:22 ‘You are to have one right-ruling, for the stranger and for the native, for I am יהוהyour Aluhym.”


Numbers 15:16 “One Torah and one right-ruling is for you and for the stranger who sojourns with you.”


So, considering that this word “bane” can mean children as in both son and daughter, and the command is given so that we will look and see the tassel and remember Yahuwah’s commands;“Speak to the children of Israel” not men or males, but children. The women were there too. And considering that there is only one law for the native born Yisraelite, and the stranger; And considering that this is a command given in the Torah in which the Messiah didn’t come to destroy (See Matthew 5:17-19), then YES women should be wearing them! They should be wearing them according to the law, which means it should be visible, and on the four corners of your garments in which you are dressed. So if you are dressed, you should have visible tassels on the corners of your clothing with the blue thread.

We ask you to “prove all things”.  1 Thessalonians 5:21

Exodus 16:23 And he said unto them, This is that which Yahuwah hath said, Tomorrow is the rest of Ha'Kadosh Sabbath unto Yahuwah: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.
