Daburim (Deuteronomy) 33:26-29  O Yashurun, there is no one like Al, riding the heavens to help you, and on the clouds, in His excellency.  (27)  The Aluahim of old is a refuge, and beneath are everlasting arms. And He drives out the enemy from before you and says, ‘Destroy!’  (28)  Thus Yashur’al (Israel) dwells in safety, the fountain of Yaw’aqub (Jacob) alone, in a land of grain and new wine. His heavens also drop down dew.  (29)  Adored are you, O Yashur’al! Who is like you, a people saved by YAHUAH, the shield of your help, and He who is the sword of your excellency! And your enemies are subdued for you, and you tread down their high places.

Psalms 68:32-35  Sing to Aluahim, you kingdoms of the earth, Praises to YAHUAH, Salah.  (33)  To Him who rides on the ancient highest heavens! See, He sends out His voice, a mighty voice.  (34)  Ascribe strength to Aluahim; His excellence is over Yashur’al, And His strength is in the clouds.  (35)  O Aluahim, awesome from Your set-apart places, The Al of Yashur’al is He Who gives strength and power to His people. Adored be Aluahim!

Psalms 104:1-4  Adore YAHUAH, O my being! O YAHUAH my Aluahim, You have been very great: You have put on excellency and splendour,  (2)  covering Yourself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a curtain,  (3)  Who is laying the beams of His upper rooms in the waters, Who is making thick clouds His chariot, Who is walking on the wings of the wind,  (4)  making His messengers the winds, His servants a flame of fire.

Yashaw’yahu (Isaiah) 19:1  The message concerning Matsuraim (Egypt). See, YAHUAH is riding on a swift cloud, and He shall come into Matsuraim. And the idols of Matsuraim shall tremble at His presence, and the heart of Matsuraim melt in its midst.

Dany’al 7:13-14  I was looking in the night visions and saw One like the Son of Man, coming with the clouds of the heavens! And He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him. (14)  And to Him was given rulership and preciousness and a reign, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His rule is an everlasting rule which shall not pass away, and His reign that which shall not be destroyed.

Nachum 1:3  YAHUAH is patient and great in power, but by no means leaves unpunished. YAHUAH has His way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of His feet.

Matatyahu 24:29-31  And immediately after the distresse of those days the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give its light, and the stars shall fall from the heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. (30)  And then the sign of the Son of Adam shall appear in the heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth shall mourn, and they shall see the Son of Adam coming on the clouds of the heaven with power and much esteem. (31)  And He shall send His messengers with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His chosen ones from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.

Matatyahu 26:59-66  And the chief priests, and the elders, and all the council were seeking false witness against YAHUSHUA to put Him to death,  (60)  but found none. Although many false witnesses came forward, they found none. But at last two false witnesses came forward,  (61)  and said, “This one said, ‘I am able to destroy the Dwelling Place of Aluahim and to build it in three days.’ ”  (62)  And the high priest stood up and said to Him, “Have You no answer to make? What do these witness against You?”  (63)  But YAHUSHUA remained silent. So the high priest said to Him, “I put You to oath, by the living Aluahim that You say to us if You are the Mashyach, the Son of Aluahim.”  (64)  YAHUSHUA said to him, “You have said it. Besides I say to you, from now on you shall see the Son of Adam sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming on the clouds of the heaven.”  (65)  Then the high priest tore his garments, saying, “He has blasphemed! Why do we need any more witnesses? See, now you have heard His blasphemy!  (66)  “What do you think?” And they answering, said, “He is liable to death.”

Mark 13:24-27  But in those days, after that distress, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give its light,  (25)  and the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers in the heavens shall be shaken.  (26)  And then they shall see the Son of Adam coming in the clouds with much power and esteem.  (27)  And then He shall send His messengers, and assemble His chosen ones from the four winds, from the farthest part of earth to the farthest part of heaven.

Mark 14:55-62  And the chief priests and all the council were seeking witness against YAHUSHUA to put Him to death, and they were finding none.  (56)  For many bore false witness against Him, but their evidences did not agree.  (57)  And some rose up and bore false witness against Him, saying,  (58)  “We heard Him saying, ‘I shall destroy this Dwelling Place that is made with hands, and within three days I shall build another made without hands.’ ”  (59)  And not even then did their witness agree.  (60)  Then the high priest stood up in the centre and asked YAHUSHUA, saying, “Have You no answer to make? What do these witness against You?”  (61)  But He remained silent and gave no answer. Again the high priest asked Him, saying to Him, “Are You the Mashyach, the Son of the Adored?”  (62)  And YAHUSHUA said, “I am, and you shall see the Son of Adam sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming with the clouds of the heaven.”

Luke 21:25-28  And there shall be signs in the sun, and moon, and stars, and on the earth anxiety of nations, in bewilderment at the roaring of the sea, and agitation,  (26)  men fainting from fear and the expectation of what is coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.  (27)  And then they shall see the Son of Adam coming in a cloud with power and much esteem.  (28)  And when these matters begin to take place, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.

Acts 1:6-11  So when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Master, would You at this time restore the kingdom to Yashur’al?”  (7)  And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.  (8)  “But you shall receive power when the Set-apart Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Yarushalam, and in all Yahudah and Shumarun (Samaria), and to the end of the earth.”  (9)  And having said this, while they were looking on, He was taken up, and a cloud hid Him from their sight.  (10)  And as they were gazing into the heaven as He went up, see, two men stood by them dressed in white,  (11)  who also said, “Men of Galil, why do you stand looking up into the heaven? This same YAHUSHUA, who was taken up from you into the heaven, shall come in the same way as you saw Him go into the heaven.”

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18  Now, brothers, we do not wish you to be ignorant concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you be sad as others who have no expectation.  (14)  For if we believe that YAHUSHUA died and rose again, so also Aluahim shall bring with Him those who sleepa in YAHUSHUA.  (15)  For this we say to you by the word of the Master, that we, the living who are left over at the coming of the Master shall in no way go before those who are asleep.  (16)  Because the Master Himself shall come down from heaven with a shout, with the voice of a chief messenger, and with the trumpet of Aluahim, and the dead in Mashyach shall rise first.  (17)  Then we, the living who are left over, shall be caught away together with them in the clouds to meet the Master in the air – and so we shall always be with the Master.  (18)  So, then, encourage one another with these words.

Revelation 1:7-8  See, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye shall see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth shall mourn because of Him. Yes, Aman.  (8)  “I am the ‘Alaph’ and the ‘Tau’, Beginning and End,” says YAHUAH “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”

Revelation 14:14-16  And I looked and saw a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud was One like the Son of Adam, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle.  (15)  And another messenger came out of the Dwelling Place, crying with a loud voice to the One sitting on the cloud, “Send Your sickle and reap, because the hour has come for You to reap, because the harvest of the earth is ripe.”  (16)  And the One sitting on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.

Covenant Of Salt


U’yaqura (Leviticus) 2:13-16  And season with salt every offering of your grain offering, and do not allow the salt of the covenant of your Aluahim to be lacking from your grain offering. With all your offerings you bring salt.  (14)  And if you bring a grain offering of your first-fruits to YAHUAH, bring for the grain offering of your first-fruits green heads of grain roasted on the fire, crushed heads of new grain.  (15)  And you shall put oil on it, and lay frankincense on it. It is a grain offering.  (16)  And the priest shall burn the remembrance portion, from its crushed grain and from its oil, with all the frankincense, an offering made by fire to YAHUAH.

B’madabur (Numbers) 18:8-11,19  And YAHUAH spoke to Aharun, “And see, I Myself have also given you the charge of My contributions, all the set-apart gifts of the children of Yashur’al. I have given them to you for the anointing, and to your sons, as a law forever.  (9)  “This is yours of the most set-apart gifts, from the fire: all their offerings, all their grain offerings and all their sin offerings and all their guilt offerings which they render to Me, are most set-apart for you and your sons.  (10)  “Eat it in the most set-apart place – every male eats it. It is set-apart to you.  (11)  “This also is yours: the contribution of their gift, with all the wave offerings of the children of Yashur’al. I have given them to you, and your sons and daughters with you, as a law forever. Everyone who is clean in your house eats it. (19) “All the contributions of the set-apart gifts, which the children of Yashur’al present to YAHUAH, I have given to you and your sons and daughters with you as a law forever. It is a covenant of salt forever before YAHUAH with you and your seed with you.” 

2 Dabury ha’Yamim (Chronicles) 13:5  Do you not know that YAHUAH Aluahim of Yashur’al has given the reign over Yashur’al to Dude (David) forever, to him and his sons, by a covenant of salt?

Yachazaq’al (Ezekiel) 43:18-27  And He said to me, “Son of man, thus said the Master YAHUAH, ‘These are the laws for the slaughter-place on the day when it is made, for offering ascending offerings on it, and for sprinkling blood on it.  (19)  And you shall give a young bull for a sin offering to the priests, the Luyim (Levites), who are of the seed of Tsaduq (Zadok), who approach unto Me,’ declares the Master YAHUAH.  (20)  And you shall take some of its blood and put it on the four horns of the slaughter-place, on the four corners of the ledge, and on the rim around it, and shall cleanse it and make atonement for it.  (21)  And you shall take the bull of the sin offering, and shall burn it in the appointed place of the House, outside the set-apart place.  (22)  And on the second day you bring a male goat, a perfect one, for a sin offering. And they shall cleanse the slaughter-place, as they cleansed it with the bull.  (23)  When you have ended cleansing it, bring a young bull, a perfect one, and a ram from the flock, a perfect one.  (24)  And you shall bring them before YAHUAH, and the priests shall throw salt on them and offer them up as an ascending offering to YAHUAH.  (25)  Prepare a goat for a sin offering daily for seven days, and prepare a young bull and a ram from the flock, perfect ones.  (26)  For seven days they shall make atonement for the slaughter-place and cleanse it, and ordain it.  (27)  And when these days are completed it shall be, on the eighth day and thereafter, that the priests make your ascending offerings and your peace offerings on the slaughter-place, and I shall accept you,’ declares the Master YAHUAH.”

Matatyahu 5:13  You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt becomes tasteless, how shall it be seasoned? For it is no longer of any use but to be thrown out and to be trodden down by men.

Mark 9:49-50  For everyone shall be seasoned with fire, and every offering shall be seasoned with salt.  (50)  Salt is good, but if the salt becomes tasteless, how shall you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace among one another.

Luke 14:34  The salt is good, but if the salt becomes tasteless, with what shall it be seasoned?

Colossians 4:6  Let your word always be with favour, seasoned with salt, so that you know how you ought to answer each one.


Note: Aside from it being a seasoning for food, salt has an intimate connection with a binding relationship. Salt was used in all of the offerings as a symbol of preserving the covenants and binding nature of Aluahim’s laws.

Ransom For All

Ayub (Job) 33:23-26  If there is a messenger for him, a mediator, one among a thousand, to show man His straightness,  (24)  then He shows favour to him, and says, ‘Release him from going down to the pit, I have found a ransom. (25)  Let his flesh become fresher than a child’s, let him return to the days of his youth.’  (26)  He prays to Aluah, and He accepts him. And he sees His face with joy, and He restores to man his righteousness.

Yashaw’yahu (Isaiah) 53:6,10-12  We all, like sheep, went astray, each one of us has turned to his own way. And YAHUAH has laid on Him the crookedness of us all. (10)  But YAHUAH was pleased to crush Him, He laid sickness on Him, that when He made Himself an offering for guilt, He would see a seed, He would prolong His days and the pleasure of YAHUAH prosper in His hand.  (11)  He would see the result of the suffering of His life and be satisfied. Through His knowledge My righteous Servant makes many righteous, and He bears their crookednesses.  (12)  Therefore I give Him a portion among the great, and He divides the spoil with the strong, because He poured out His being unto death, and He was counted with the transgressors, and He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Matatyahu 20:27-28  And whoever wishes to be first among you, let him be your servant,  (28)  even as the Son of Adam did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.

Mark 10:42-45  And YAHUSHUA, calling them near, said to them, “You know that those who think to rule the nations are masters over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them.  (43)  “But it is not so among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant.  (44)  “And whoever wishes to be first among you, shall be servant of all.  (45)  “For even the Son of Adam did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

Yahuchanan 6:48-51  “I am the bread of life.  (49)  “Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness and they died.  (50)  “This is the bread which comes down out of the heaven, so that anyone might eat of it, and not die.  (51)  “I am the living bread which came down out of the heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he shall live forever. And indeed, the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”

Yahuchanan 10:11,14-18  “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. (14)  “I am the good shepherd. And I know Mine, and Mine know Me,  (15)  even as the Father knows Me, and I know the Father. And I lay down My life for the sheep.  (16)  “And other sheep I have which are not of this fold – I have to bring them as well, and they shall hear My voice, and there shall be one flock, one shepherd.  (17)  “Because of this the Father loves Me, because I lay down My life, in order to receive it again.  (18)  “No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to receive it again. This command I have received from My Father.”

2 Corinthians 5:14-15,21 For the love of Mashyach compels us, having judged this: that if One died for all, then all died;  (15)  and He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died for them, and was raised. (21) For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of Aluahim.

1 Timothy 2:1-6  First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be made for all men,  (2)  for sovereigns and all those who are in authority, in order that we lead a calm and peaceable life in all reverence and seriousness.  (3)  For this is good and acceptable before Aluahim our Saviour,  (4)  who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the Truth.  (5)  For there is one Aluahim, and one Mediator between Aluahim and men, the Man YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach,  (6)  who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the witness in one’s own time.

Titus 2:11-14  For the saving Gift of Aluahim has appeared to all men,  (12)  instructing us to renounce wickedness and worldly lusts, and to live sensibly, righteously, and reverently in the present age,  (13)  looking for the joyful expectation and esteemed appearance of the great Aluahim and our Saviour YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach,  (14)  who gave Himself for us, to ransom us from all lawlessness and to cleanse for Himself a people, His own possession, ardent for good works.

1 Kaipha (Peter) 1:17-21  And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, pass the time of your sojourning in fear,  (18)  knowing that you were ransomed from your futile behavior inherited from your fathers, not with what is corruptible, silver or gold,  (19)  but with the precious blood of Mashyach, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless,  (20)  foreknown, indeed, before the foundation of the world, but manifested in these last times for your sakes,  (21)  who through Him believe in Aluahim who raised Him from the dead and gave Him esteem, so that your belief and expectation are in Aluahim.

No, Not One


Psalms 14:1-3 The fool has said in his heart, “There is no YAHUAH.” They have done corruptly, They have done an abominable deed, There is no one who does good. (2) YAHUAH looked down from the heavens on the sons of mankind, To see if there is a wise one, seeking YAHUAH. (3) They have all turned aside, They have together become filthy; No one is doing good, not even one.

Psalms 53:1-3 The fool has said in his heart, “There is no Aluahim.” They have done corruptly, And they have done abominable unrighteousness; No one does good. (2) Aluahim looked down from the heavens on the children of men, To see if there is a wise one, seeking Aluahim. (3) They have all turned aside; They have together become filthy; No one is doing good, not even one.

Psalms 143:1-2 Hear my prayer, O YAHUAH, Give ear to my pleadings in Your trustworthiness. Answer me in Your righteousness. (2) And do not enter into right-ruling with Your servant, For before You no one living is in the right.

Ecclesiates 7:20 For there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and does not sin.

Romans 3:10-12 As it has been written, “There is none righteous, no, not one! (11) There is no one who is understanding, there is none who is seeking Aluahim. (12) They all have turned aside, they have together become worthless. There is none who does good, no, not one.”

Chosen Servant

chosen servant

Yashaw’yahu (Isaiah) 42:1-4 “See, My Servant whom I uphold, My Chosen One My being has delighted in! I have put My Spirit upon Him; He brings forth right-ruling to the nations. (2) “He does not cry out, nor lifts up His voice, nor causes His voice to be heard in the street. (3) “A crushed reed He does not break, and smoking flax He does not quench. He brings forth right-ruling in accordance with truth. (4) “He does not become weak or crushed, until He has established right-ruling in the earth. And the coastlands wait for His Turah.”

Yashaw’yahu (Isaiah) 49:5-7 And now said YAHUAH – who formed Me from the womb to be His Servant, to bring Yaw’aqub (Jacob) back to Him, though Yashur’al is not gathered to Him, yet I am esteemed in the eyes of YAHUAH, and My Aluahim has been My strength – (6) and He says, “Shall it be a small matter for You to be My Servant to raise up the tribes of Yaw’aqub, and to bring back the preserved ones of Yashur’al? And I shall give You as a light to the nations, to be My deliverance to the ends of the earth!” (7) Thus said YAHUAH, the Redeemer of Yashur’al, their Set-apart One, to the despised , to the loathed One of the nation, to the Servant of rulers, “Sovereigns shall see and arise, rulers also shall bow themselves, because of YAHUAH who is steadfast, the Set-apart One of Yashur’al. And He has chosen You!”

Yashaw’yahu (Isaiah) 50:10 Who among you is fearing YAHUAH, obeying the voice of His Servant, that has walked in darkness and has no light? Let him trust in the Name of YAHUAH and lean upon his Aluahim!

Yashaw’yahu (Isaiah) 52:13-15 See, My Servant shall work wisely, He shall be exalted and lifted up and very high. (14) As many were astonished at You – so the disfigurement beyond any man’s and His form beyond the sons of men – (15) He shall likewise startle many nations. Sovereigns shut their mouths at Him, for what had not been recounted to them they shall see, and what they had not heard they shall understand.

Yashaw’yahu (Isaiah) 53:7-12 He was oppressed and He was afflicted, but He did not open His mouth. He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, but He did not open His mouth. (8) He was taken from prison and from judgment. And as for His generation, who considered that He shall be cut off from the land of the living? For the transgression of My people He was stricken. (9) And He was appointed a burial-site with the wrong, and with the rich at His death, because He had done no violence, nor was deceit in His mouth. (10) But YAHUAH was pleased to crush Him, He laid sickness on Him, that when He made Himself an offering for guilt, He would see a seed, He would prolong His days and the pleasure of YAHUAH prosper in His hand. (11) He would see the result of the suffering of His life and be satisfied. Through His knowledge My righteous Servant makes many righteous, and He bears their crookednesses. (12) Therefore I give Him a portion among the great, and He divides the spoil with the strong, because He poured out His being unto death, and He was counted with the transgressors, and He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Zacharyahu (Zechariah) 3:6-8 And the messenger of YAHUAH witnessed to Yahushua, saying, (7) “Thus said YAHUAH of hosts, ‘If you walk in My ways, and if you guard My duty, then you shall also rule My house, and also guard My courts. And I shall give you access among these standing here. (8) Now listen, Yahushua the high priest, you and your companions who sit before you, for they are men of symbol. For look, I am bringing forth My Servant – the Branch.

Matatyahu (Matthew) 12:15-21 But YAHUSHUA, knowing it, withdrew from there. And large crowds followed Him, and He healed them all, (16) and warned them not to make Him known, (17) in order that what was spoken by Yashaw’yahu the prophet, might be filled, saying, (18) “See, My Servant whom I have chosen, My Beloved in whom My being did delight. I shall put My Spirit upon Him, and He shall declare right-ruling to the nations. (19) “He shall not strive nor cry out, nor shall anyone hear His voice in the streets. (20) “A crushed reed He shall not break, and smoking flax He shall not quench, till He brings forth right-ruling forever. (21) “And the nations shall trust in His Name.”

Acts 3:13 The Aluahim of Aburaham, and of Yatsachaq (Isaac), and of Yaw’aqub, the Aluahim of our fathers, esteemed His Servant YAHUSHUA, whom you delivered up and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release Him.

Acts 3:22-26 “For Mushah (Moses) truly said to the fathers, ‘YAHUAH your Aluahim shall raise up for you a Prophet like me from your brothers. Him you shall hear according to all matters, whatever He says to you. (23) ‘And it shall be that every being who does not hear that Prophet shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.’ (24) “And likewise, all the prophets who have spoken, from Shamu’al (Samuel) and those following, have also announced these days. (25) “You are sons of the prophets, and of the covenant which Aluahim made with our fathers, saying to Aburaham, ‘And in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be adored.’ (26) “To you first, Aluahim, having raised up His Servant YAHUSHUA, sent Him to adore you, in turning away each one of you from your wicked ways.”

Acts 4:23-31 And having been released, they went to their own people and reported all that the chief priests and elders said to them. (24) And having heard that, they lifted up their voice to Aluahim with one mind and said, “YAHUAH, You are Aluahim, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and all that is in them, (25) who by the mouth of Your servant Dude (David) have said, ‘Why did the nations/heathen rage, and the people plot in vain? (26) ‘The sovereigns of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against YAHUAH and against His Mashyach (Messiah).’ (27) “For truly, in this city there were gathered together against Your set-apart Servant YAHUSHUA, whom You anointed, both Herodes and Pontius Pilate, with the nations and the people of Yashur’al (28) to do whatever Your hand and Your purpose decided before to be done. (29) “And now, YAHUAH, look on their threats, and give to Your servants all boldness to speak Your word, (30) by stretching out Your hand for healing, and signs, and wonders to take place through the Name of Your set-apart Servant YAHUSHUA.” (31) And when they had prayed, the place where they came together was shaken. And they were all filled with the Set-apart Spirit, and they spoke the word of Aluahim with boldness.

Imitate Us


1 Corinthians 4:15-16 For if you should have ten thousand instructors in Mashyach, yet not many fathers, for in YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach I have brought you forth through the Good News. (16) Therefore I appeal to you, to become imitators of me.

1 Corinthians 11:1-3 Become imitators of me, as I also am of Mashyach. (2) And I praise you, brothers, that you remember me in every way and keep the traditions as I delivered them to you. (3) And I wish you to know that the head of every man is the Mashyach, and the head of woman is the man, and the head of Mashyach is Aluahim.

Ephesians 5:1-2 Become, then, imitators of Aluahim as beloved children. (2) And walk in love, as Mashyach also has loved us, and gave Himself for us, a gift and an offering to Aluahim for a sweet-smelling fragrance.

1 Thessalonians 1:1-7 Sha’ul, and Silas, and Timothy, to the assembly of the Thessalonians in Aluahim the Father and the Master YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach: Favour to you and peace from Aluahim our Father and the Master YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach. (2) We give thanks to Aluahim always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers, (3) remembering without ceasing your work of the belief, and the labour of love, and the endurance of the expectation in our Master YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach in the presence of our Aluahim and Father, (4) knowing, brothers beloved by Aluahim, that you were chosen. (5) Because our Good News did not come to you in word only, but also in power, and in the Set-apart Spirit and in entire confirmation, as you know what kind of men we were among you for your sake. (6) And you became imitators of us and of the Master, having received the word in much pressure, with joy of the Set-apart Spirit, (7) so that you became an example to all who believe in Makedonia and Achaia.

1 Thessalonians 2:8-16 So, having a tender affection for you, we were well pleased to share with you not only the Good News of Aluahim, but also our own lives, because you have become beloved to us. (9) For you remember, brothers, our toil and hardship, for labouring night and day, in order not to burden any of you, we proclaimed to you the Good News of Aluahim. (10) You are witnesses, Aluahim also, how set-apart and righteously and blamelessly we behaved ourselves among you who believe, (11) even as you know how each one of you, as a father to his children, encouraging and comforting and bearing witness to you, (12) that you would walk worthily of Aluahim who is calling you into His own reign and esteem. (13) And because of this we thank Elohim without ceasing, that when you received the Word of Aluahim which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is truly, the Word of Aluahim, which also works in you who believe. (14) For you, brothers, became imitators of the assemblies of Aluahim which are in Yahudah in YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach, because you also suffered the same treatment from your own countrymen as they also from the Yahudim, (15) who killed both the Master YAHUSHUA and their own prophets, and have persecuted us, and who displease Aluahim and are hostile to all men, (16) forbidding us to speak to the nations that they might be saved, so as to fill up their sins always. But the wrath has come upon them to the utmost.

2 Thessalonians 3:6-9 But we command you, brothers, in the Name of our Master YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach, that you withdraw from every brother who walks disorderly and not according to the tradition which you received from us. (7) For you yourselves know how you ought to imitate us, for we were not disorderly among you, (8) nor did we eat anyone’s bread without paying for it, but worked with labour and toil night and day, in order not to burden any of you, (9) not because we do not have authority, but to make ourselves an example, for you to imitate us.

Hebrews 6:10-12 For Aluahim is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love which you have shown toward His Name, in that you have attended to the set-apart ones, and still attend. (11) And we desire that each one of you show the same eagerness, to the entire confirmation of expectation until the end, (12) in order that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through belief and patience inherit the promises.

Hebrews 13:7 Remember those leading you, who spoke the Word of Aluahim to you. Consider the outcome of their behaviour and imitate their belief.

3 Yahuchanan (John) 1:11 Beloved ones, do not imitate the evil, but the good. The one who is doing good is of Aluahim, but he who is doing evil has not seen Aluahim.

1 Kaipha (Peter) 3:8-13 To sum up, let all of you be like-minded, sympathetic, loving as brothers, tenderhearted, humble-minded, (9) not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary commendation, knowing that you were called to this, in order to inherit a largesse. (10) For “He who wishes to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking deceit, (11) let him turn away from evil and do good, let him seek peace and pursue it. (12) “Because the eyes of YAHUAH are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayers, but the face of YAHUAH is against those who do evil.” (13) And who is the one doing evil to you, if you become imitators of the good?

The Unforgivable Sin


Matatyahu (Matthew) 12:22-32  Then they brought to Him one who was demon-possessed, blind and dumb. And He healed him, so that the blind and dumb man both spoke and saw.  (23)  And all the crowds were amazed and said, “Is this the Son of Dude (David)?”  (24)  But when the Pharisees heard it they said, “This one does not cast out demons except by Baw’al Zabub, the ruler of the demons.”  (25)  And YAHUSHUA knew their thoughts, and said to them, “Every reign divided against itself is laid waste, and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.  (26)  “And if Shathan (Satan) casts out Shathan, he is divided against himself. How then does his reign stand?  (27)  “And if I, by Baw’al Zabub, do cast out demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? Because of this they shall be your judges.  (28)  “But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of Aluahim, then the reign of Aluahim has come upon you.  (29)  “Or how is one able to enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he shall plunder his house.  (30)  “He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad.  (31)  “Because of this I say to you, all sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven men.  (32)  “And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Adam, it shall be forgiven him, but whoever speaks against the Set-apart Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.”

Mark 3:28-30  “Truly, I say to you, all the sins shall be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they speak,  (29)  but he who blasphemes against the Set-apart Spirit has no forgiveness forever, but is subject to everlasting judgment,”  (30)  because they said, “He has an unclean spirit.”

Luke 12:8-12  “And I say to you, everyone who confesses Me before men, the Son of Adam shall also confess him before the messengers of Aluahim.  (9)  “But he that has denied Me before men shall be denied before the messengers of Aluahim.  (10)  “And everyone who shall speak a word against the Son of Adam, it shall be forgiven him, but to him who has blasphemed against the Set-apart Spirit, it shall not be forgiven.  (11)  “And when they bring you to the congregations and rulers and authorities, do not worry about how or what you should answer, or what you should say,  (12)  for the Set-apart Spirit shall teach you in that very hour what you should say.”

Acts 7:51-60  “You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears! You always resist the Set-apart Spirit, as your fathers did, you also do.  (52)  “Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? And they killed those who before announced the coming of the Righteous One, of whom you now have become the betrayers and murderers,  (53)  who received the Turah as it was ordained by messengers, but did not watch over it.”  (54)  And hearing this they were cut to the hearts and gnashed the teeth at him.  (55)  But he, being filled with the Set-apart Spirit, looked steadily into the heaven and saw the esteem of Aluahim, and YAHUSHUA standing at the right hand of Aluahim,  (56)  and he said, “Look! I see the heavens opened and the Son of Adam standing at the right hand of Aluahim!” (57)  And crying out with a loud voice, they stopped their ears, and rushed upon him with one mind,  (58)  and threw him out of the city and stoned him. And the witnesses laid down their garments at the feet of a young man named Sha’ul.  (59)  And they were stoning Stephanos as he was calling and saying, “Master YAHUSHUA, receive my spirit.”  (60)  And kneeling down he cried out with a loud voice, “Master, do not hold this sin against them.” And having said this, he fell asleep.

Ephesians 4:29-32  Let no corrupt word come out of your mouth, but only such as is good for the use of building up, so as to impart what is pleasant to the hearers.  (30)  And do not grieve the Set-apart Spirit of Aluahim, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.  (31)  Let all bitterness, and wrath, and displeasure, and uproar, and slander be put away from you, along with all evil.  (32)  And be kind towards one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as Aluahim also forgave you in Mashyach.

Awburim (Hebrews) 6:4-6  For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Set-apart Spirit,  (5)  and have tasted the good Word of Aluahim and the powers of the age to come,  (6)  and fall away, to renew them again to repentance – having impaled for themselves the Son of Aluahim again, and put Him to open shame.

Awburim (Hebrews) 10:26-31  For if we sin purposely after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a slaughter offering for sins,  (27)  but some fearsome anticipation of judgment, and a fierce fire which is about to consume the opponents.  (28)  Anyone who has disregarded the Turah of Mushah dies without compassion on the witness of two or three witnesses.  (29)  How much worse punishment do you think shall he deserve who has trampled the Son of Aluahim underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was set apart as common, and insulted the Spirit of favour?  (30)  For we know Him who has said, “Vengeance is Mine, I shall repay, says YAHUAH.” And again, “YAHUAH shall judge His people.”  (31)  It is fearsome to fall into the hands of the living Aluahim.

1 Yahuchanan (John) 5:6-12  This is the One that came by water and blood: YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach, not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is the Truth.  (7)  Because there are three who bear witness:  (8)  the Spirit, and the water, and the blood. And the three are in agreement.  (9)  If we receive the witness of men, the witness of Aluahim is greater, because this is the witness of Aluahim which He has witnessed concerning His Son.  (10)  The one who believes in the Son of Aluahim has the witness in himself, the one who does not believe Aluahim has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the witness that Aluahim has given concerning His Son.  (11)  And this is the witness: that Aluahim has given us everlasting life, and this life is in His Son.  (12)  He who possesses the Son possesses life, he who does not possess the Son of Aluahim does not possess life.

1 Yahuchanan (John) 5:13-16  I have written this to you who believe in the Name of the Son of Aluahim, so that you know that you possess everlasting life, and so that you believe in the Name of the Son of Aluahim.  (14)  And this is the boldness that we have in Him, that if we ask whatever according to His desire, He hears us.  (15)  And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.  (16)  If anyone sees his brother sinning a sin, not unto death, he shall ask, and He shall give him life for those not sinning unto death. There is a sin unto death. I do not say that he should pray about that.
