YHWH is the author of Righteous Instruction and Judgment
The Word of YHWH is the Testimony of Y’shua Mashiyach
“Therefore you shall LOVE YHWH your Elohim
and SHAMAR keep
His MISHMERETH charge,
and His COKHAH Statutes,
and His MISHPATIM Judgments,
and His MITZVOTH Commandments, always.
And know this day: for I speak not with your children which have not known,
and which have not seen the Instruction of YHWH your Elohim,
His Greatness, His Mighty Hand, and His Stretched Out Arm.”
LOVE YHWH your ELOHIM
“The name of YHWH is a strong tower: the righteous run into it, and are safe.” Proverbs 18:10
The Name of YHWH (pronounced Yah-weh*) was first revealed to Adam. The Name above all Names is Yahweh, it is an aspirant Name meaning it must be breathed while vocalized if one is to understand and speak it correctly. Before original sin in the Garden of Eden, man was an eternal spirit being. YHWH revealed Himself as the Self-Existent One and Creator of all things. By pronouncing the Name as an aspirant, one can begin to understand how YHWH revealed Himself to His people. Anytime before we speak the Name of YHWH we must remember His Name is YHWH Kadosh (Holy & Set Apart).
The Name of YHWH is not to be brought down to an ordinary or common Name, Life originated from YHWH, therefore His Name is more important than Life itself. YHWH guards His Name, therefore it is wise and prudent for us also to guard His Name. We must protect His Set Apart Name from being used in a common manner. During the creation of this website, indeed all Netzarim Jewish websites, writings and discussion where we write the Name of YHWH, great care and attention is taken to preserve His Mighty and Kadosh Name. Our intent is to recognize who YHWH is, and as much as we are able, to understand who we are in relation to Him. Our goal is to draw close to YHWH and to meet with Him, as such He promises He will draw close to us. If our intent is only to satisfy a curiosity then we have no hope of making a vital spiritual connection with Him, we will have failed the meaning a purpose of His Name.
It is commonly understood that we are to LOVE YAHWEH our ELOHIM, and Love our neighbour, but LOVE is impossible to define outside of the Attributes of YHWH. Love and YHWH are inseparable, it is a curse for someone to learn the Way of Righteousness and then turn away and live a carnal and selfish materialistic lifestyle. The Way of Righteousness and Love judges each of us according to what we do with what has been revealed. As we learn the Name of YHWH let us consider our need for Him and how we must grow in our relationship with Him and each other.
Pronouncing the Aspirant Name of Yahweh
FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIONS TO LEARN HOW SAY THE ANCIENT NAME OF YHWH
The Name of Yahweh has two syllables
YAH – WEH
|Breathe IN slowly and deeply while pronouncing
|Breathe OUT slowly while pronouncing
The Name of Yahweh reflects Life itself. YHWH is the Self Existent One who gives Breath or Life. YHWH is Elohim, there is none other nor indeed can there be another. As we speak His Name out loud, we breathe His Name. Consider how our breath keeps us alive. Consider how YHWH has created each of as a unique souls who walk before Him with life. YHWH is our life force, we have no life force of our own. No man will be able to resurrect or to be healed or redeemed or delivered without YHWH’s Power. YHWH has put His Spirit (breath) of Life inside of us, but, this is only the beginning of how we must know Him. YHWH created us to be His delight and so we must also take delight in who we are in Him. We are created in the Image of Elohim.
The process of loving YHWH includes hearing His Voice, knowing Him and studying Him. YHWH is outside of Time and Space, He is Self-Existent therefore His Revelation to us must be brought within Time and Space and into our material and spiritual worlds. This is accomplished by HaMashiyach. YHWH is infinite, He has created a place within infinity for us to exist, our existence is a product of His design and architecture. The Word of YHWH is manifest in many dimensions. The Holy Scriptures are the revelation of Mashiyach and the Spirit of YHWH. The Kadosh Scriptures refer to the WORD OF YHWH as the ARM of YHWH revealed, in other words whenever we read about the WORD OF YHWH it is revealing Mashiyach.
By Faith we know that Mashiyach came to earth and was revealed to us as Yeshua -YHWH is Salvation. This is what Scripture means when it says that YHWH’s OWN ARM brought Salvation. Through the Name and Person of Yeshua we are able to connect to the Ruach HaKodesh. YHWH the Father is not a Person as you and I, He is Spirit and all who worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.
Consider where our thoughts come from, as we study the Word we experience a synergy of ideas and creative genius that is much greater than the simple sum of the parts. As we study and contemplate many things we are stretched and increased in many ways, sometimes we will have dreams or visions about the material we are studying. Our minds connect us to energy that is outside us, this “energy” is the Spiritual World. The applied genius of man occurs when we take wisdom from the Spiritual World and apply it into our natural world. The folly of man is when he takes credit to himself for “borrowing” wisdom from YHWH and refuses to give Him the Glory and Honor. We “borrow” YHWH’s wisdom because we are finite, generation after generation has lived by the revealed wisdom and understanding of the Father that we pass on to the next generation. When that wisdom is not nurtured the next generation dies.
To Love YHWH our Elohim means to LOVE what He LOVES. YHWH has clearly shown that the MAIN OBJECT OF HIS LOVE is His Creation, specifically the REDEMPTION of human life. The main focus of His revealed WORD, the TORAH, is to protect and prosper all Human life within HIS PERFECT JUSTICE SYSTEM.
To Love YHWH our Elohim means to know Him as our ELOHIM. Elohim means MIGHTY ONE referring specifically to mankind’s ultimate source of power, we must never loose sight of who we are. We must never loose our way by being deceived into thinking there is more than One source of Life other than YHWH, there can only be One and His Name is One.
YHWH is Elohim, there is none other.
SHAMAR (Keep or Observe) His MISHMERETH (charge)
MISHMERETH translates into charge, order or mandate, it comes from the root word SHAMARmeaning “to KEEP“, “to GUARD” or “to OBSERVE“. YHWH says to Keep His Mishmereth, that means EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS FROM THE MOUTH OF YHWH IS TRUTH TO LIVE BY. YHWH is the SOVEREIGN KING of the UNIVERSE, HIS CHARGE is PERFECT, these are binding legal requirements for all who live. Hearing the Word of YHWH means KEEPING His Word.
SHEMA YISRAEL, YHWH ELOHEINU YHWH ECHAD, HEAR O ISRAEL, YAHWEH IS ELOHIM, YAHWEH IS ONE.
|“For this direction which I direct you this day, it is not hidden from you, neither is it far off. It is not in heaven, that you should say, “Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?” Neither is it beyond the sea, that you should say, “Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?” But the word is very nigh unto you, in your mouth, and in your heart,
that you may do it.” Deuteronomy 30:11-14
SHAMAR (Keep or Observe) His CHOKHIM (Statutes)
CHOKHIM are those statutes or ordinances that come through the authority of CHAKHAQ “The LAWGIVER”. “The Sceptre shall not depart from Yehudah, nor a CHAKHAQ (LAWGIVER) from between His feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.” Genesis 49:10 “For YHWH is our Judge, YHWH is our (CHAKHAQ) LAWGIVER, YHWH is our king; He will save us.” Isaiah 33:22 Yehuda acts as LAWGIVER within Israel through the authority of Mashiyach Yeshua who came through the Tribe of Yehuda. The Chokhim (Statutes) show YHWH’s Authority to UNILATERALLY make and establish Law as the Head of His Righteous Government.
SHAMAR (Keep or Observe) His MISHPATIM (Judgments)
MISHPATIM are those Judgments given through the authority of the SHAPHAT “The JUDGE”. The Torah of YHWH is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of YHWH is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of YHWH are right, rejoicing the heart: the Mitzvoth Commandment of YHWH is pure, enlightening the eyes. The Fear of YHWH is clean, enduring for ever: the MISHPATIM JUDGMENTS of YHWH are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Psalms 19:7-10 YHWH’s MISHPATIM are True and Righteous.
SHAMAR (Keep or Observe) His MITZVOTH (Directions or Commandments)
MITZVOTH is the second most frequent term in the Tenach relating to YHWH’s directives, and used one third as many times as the Word TORAH, just a few more mentions than MISHPATIM. MITZVOTH is generally translated “Commandments” but would more accurately be understood as DIRECTIONS. YHWH’s people are on a pilgrimage called life sojourning to Mt. Tsiyon the Promised Land and Government of Mashiyach, the New Jerusalem. The MITZVOTH of YHWH have always been sown into the hearts of each soul from the time of Adam and Eve by the work of the Ruach HaKodesh, they guide us, they are the mind of Mashiyach to direct our way. Hebrew prime words give us a more clear understanding of the word Mitsvah.
|Mitsvah Direction or Commandment
Yatsa Migrates (comes out of Egypt)
Tsiyon Mountain of YHWH
By looking at these words together the picture becomes clear and simple. The Mitzvoth, Directionsare what each Traveler needs to be able to Migrate out of Egypt through the Desert recognizing theLandmarks of life to find the Way to Mt. Tsiyon. The Mitsvoth Directions of YHWH live inside of us, as we observe them we live inside the mind of Mashiyach. By Keeping the Commandments of YHWH we have life, if we break them we die. Each soul in Mashiyach has a story to tell about coming from Sinai, a thorny place in the Desert to receive Mt. Tsiyon, the Blessing. Yeshua wore a crown of thorns on His Head, He connects us by His Sufferings to Mt. Sinai and by defeating death to go up to Mt. Tsiyon. All who follow Mashiyach must observe the Mitsvoth, Yeshua said, “but if you will enter into life, keep the MITZVOTH, Commandments”, Matthew 19:17
SHAMAR (Keep or Observe) His EDYUTH (Testimonies)
EDYUTH are the TESTIMONIES OF YHWH from the root word to Testify and bring Witness. The EDYUTH of YHWH are our Testimony to Him and others that we belong to HIM. And you shall put the mercy seat upon the ark of the EDYUTH Testimony in the most holy place. Sh’mot 26:34 Inside the Testimony of YHWH are the ESER HADIBROT, THE TEN WORDS referred to as the Ten Commandments. This Testimony is that of each soul who walks in YHWH, it is the Mind of Mashiyach. Yeshua is the Word of YHWH come to earth in the form of a man. Pre-incarnate Yeshua is the WORD OF YHWH, the Ten Commandments are a Testimony as they Testify and bear witness of the Perfection of YHWH’s WORD, and His intimate knowledge of mankind.
“I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a UTH witness of a covenant between me and the earth.” B’resheet 9:13 As the Bow in the Cloud is an eternal witness of YHWH’s Word so is each of His EDYUTH eternal and righteous. We have the privilege as His Talmidim to bear witness as co-labourers with Him, we joyfully observe is Shabbat and each of His EDYUTH as a perpetual sign between Him and each one of us who walks in Mashiyach.
SHAMAR (Keep or Observe) His TORAH (Righteous Instructions)
TORAH is the one of the most beautiful and powerful words in all of Word of YHWH. Torah means “Instruction in Righteousness”, there is nearly 500 mentions of the word Torah in all the Kadosh Ketuvim from B’resheet to Revelations. Torah has been mistranslated into the word LAW, but it bears no resemblance to Laws as known by the Hellenized world. TORAH is YHWH’s Instructions, His Counsel and His Guidance, Torah is an all encompassing Word that includes all the directives of YHWH, but much more than the directives of Law. Torah is a love story of YHWH told between Him and His people Israel, through this love story all souls are welcomed to enter into Life as the Israel of Elohim. Every soul who walks in MASHIYACH must walk in TORAH, and every soul who walks in TORAH must walk in MASHIYACH, these are ONE.
Each soul in Mashiyach has a heritage and an inheritance in this life in Torah, and in the World to come. David said, “The TORAH of YHWH is perfect, converting the soul“, Mashiyach Yeshua said, “Truly I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the TORAH, till all be fulfilled.” Apostle Paul said, “Wherefore the TORAH is KADOSH (set apart or HOLY), and the commandment holy , and just , and good.” Romans 7:12 Paul gave a very sober warning regarding TORAH stating that, “For the Mystery of TORAH-lessness has already begun to work secretly; but it will be a secret only until he who restrains it is taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked One and his anti-Torah plans be revealed, whom the Lord Yeshua shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause Elohim shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12
The teachings of the “wicked one” are embodied in the teachings of “Jesus” that does away with Torah, and calls the Torah of YHWH the “Old Testament”. YHWH is not OLD and neither are his Testimonies, the Testimonies of YHWH are Eternal and New every morning for those who delight in His Torah. The anti-Messiah teaches the abolition of Shabbat in favor of Sun-day, the abolition of the Moedim (Feasts) of YHWH in favor of pagan celebrations like Christmas, Easter, Valentines day and Halloween, the abolition of Clean and acceptable foods for swine and blood and the list goes on. The TORAH of YHWH is eternal and will be the standard of All Righteousness in the World to Come.
Yeshua gave his Talmidim (disciples) a very sober and clear warning regarding those who refuse His TORAH, “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work against Torah.” The TORAH of YHWH brings Life, the sin of blasphemy is to speak against the Work of the Ruach HaKodesh that writes YHWH’s Torah upon the hearts of His People.
Consider the difference between what the Word of YHWH calls righteous and what religion has to offer, oftentimes we discover these two ideals are exact opposites.
*The enemy has planted much confusion on the pronunciation of the Name of Yahweh, within what is known as the “Sacred Name” movement are some of the most beautiful souls you will ever meet and some of the most hateful religious bigots you will ever meet, so beware of any information regarding the pronunciation or importance of the Name of YHWH. Please check things out for yourself. Also be warned that it is taboo among religious orthodox Jews to speak the Name of YHWH to a gentile, so please don’t ask religious Jews about how to say the Name of YHWH. You might as well go ask the pope of Rome how to be Torah observant. The fact is that modern Hebrew has not retained the Name of YHWH intact, we must return to ancient Hebrew and Aramaic and Greek (believe it or not) to reconstruct the pronunciation and importance of the Name of YHWH.
