I Am that I Am-It is so Obvious

Joseph F. Dumond

Isa 6:9-12 And He said, Go, and tell this people, You hear indeed, but do not understand; and seeing you see, but do not know. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn back, and be healed. Then I said, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities are wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land laid waste, a desolation, and until Jehovah has moved men far away, and the desolation in the midst of the land is great.

Shabbat Shalom To the Royal Family,

Update on G-7

Well, it has been an interesting week since I posted last week about the Trade Wars brewing.

I do think this Instagram posting by Germanies Angela Merkel tells it all. The G-6 versus President Trump and the USA.

Some of you took offence to my articles last week. That is those from the USA who seem to support President Trump, stating what do I know because I am a Canadian. And yet they still want to read my newsletter. Written by a Canadian. Hmmm.

Frankly, Scarlet, I don’t give a Damn if it was Mr Trump that was President or Mrs. Clinton that was occupying that office. What I care about is obeying Yehovah and Him Alone and stirring some of you up enough to do the same. Our take last week was not a condemnation of President Trump’s methodologies. No, not at all. I actually like a man who says what he is going to do and actually does it. In fact, President Trump is actually quite brilliant.

In case you have not yet figured out his plan. He first went to Saudis and spoke with them. Then they became allies of Israel. Hmmm. He attacks Syria and told no one until after it took place. Hmmm. He steps up and destroyed ISIS. He tears up the Iranian Nuclear deal. He then gives the nod to Israel to take out the Iranian bases in southern Syria with the blind eye of Russia. Hmmm. The President then makes peace overtures with North Korea who are the suppliers of Iran’s Nuclear and Missile technology. And the President is aiding the Saudis in their beefed up attack on Yemen to route the Houthis who are a proxy for the Iranians.

The president is cutting off Iran on all fronts and has not said a word. So don’t think I am not paying attention to world events just because I am a Canadian.

We are here to share with you our understanding of the Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles and how they reveal end time prophecy which is especially being revealed in Daniel 9:24-27. Mr Trump is the one fulfilling these prophecies whether he knows it or not. By alienating all of his Allies, he is going to cause Germany and the EU to turn on him in war.

That was the point of the article last week, to show you how tariffs and sanctions are tools in place of bombs and mortars.

We even have a quote from Fox News stating that we are achieving peace and prosperity.

“The truth is, we’re in the midst of a time of pretty amazing peace and prosperity.” —Laura Ingraham


Jeremaih 6:4 14 They have dressed the wound of My people with very little care, saying, ‘Peace, peace,’ when there is no peace at all. 15 Were they ashamed of the abomination they committed? No, they were not at all ashamed. They did not even know how to blush. So they will fall among the fallen; when I punish them, they will collapse,” says the LORD.…

1 Thessalonians 5:3
While people are saying, “Peace and security,” destruction will come upon them suddenly, like labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

Isaiah 30:10
They say to the seers, “No more visions,” and to the prophets, “Do not prophesy to us the truth. Speak to us pleasant words; prophesy illusions.

Jeremiah 8:11
They dress the wounds of the daughter of My people with very little care, saying, ‘Peace, peace,’ when there is no peace.

Jeremiah 14:13
“Ah, Lord GOD!” I replied, “Look, the prophets are telling them, ‘You will not see the sword or suffer famine, but I will give you lasting peace in this place.'”

Ezekiel 13:10
Because they have led My people astray, saying, “Peace,” when there is no peace, and whitewashing any flimsy wall that is built,

Ezekiel 13:16
those prophets of Israel who prophesied to Jerusalem and saw a vision of peace for her when there was no peace, declares the Lord GOD.”‘

Take a look at this picture and tell me what you see.

Let me help you out. Here are the same leaders at the G-7 Summit held in Italy. Notice the flags behind each leader. Now count the three tribes of Joseph. The USA, UK and Canada. Then count those that come from The EU, the European Union, the Great whore of Revelation. The two leaders of the EU are there along with Germany and Italy and France. These are the people the Bible says are going to attack and destroy the USA.

And now President Trump has left the G-7 meeting with Angela Merkel saying

‘We don’t let ourselves be taken advantage of again and again,’ chancellor says.

Yes I know I heard President Trump explain away the picture at the top saying he gets along with all of these leaders. The G-7 used to control 70% of all world trade. Today it is 50% of all world trade. These are the most powerful people and nation on the earth. And President Trump is making them all pay up and trade fair. The Great whore of Revelation is the EU and she does not like what the Americans are doing to her.

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come forth, my people, out of her, that ye have no fellowship with her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues: for her sins have reached even unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Render unto her even as she rendered, and double unto her the double according to her works: in the cup which she mingled, mingle unto her double. How much soever she glorified herself, and waxed wanton, so much give her of torment and mourning: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall in no wise see mourning. Therefore in one day shall her plagues come, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire; for strong is the Lord God who judged her.
And the kings of the earth, who committed fornication and lived wantonly with her, shall weep and wail over her, when they look upon the smoke of her burning, standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Woe, woe, the great city, Babylon, the strong city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, for no man buyeth their merchandise any more; merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stone, and pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet; and all thyine wood, and every vessel of ivory, and every vessel made of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble; and cinnamon, and spice, and incense, and ointment, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and cattle, and sheep; and merchandise of horses and chariots and slaves; and souls of men. And the fruits which thy soul lusted after are gone from thee, and all things that were dainty and sumptuous are perished from thee, and men shall find them no more at all. The merchants of these things, who were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning; saying, Woe, woe, the great city, she that was arrayed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stone and pearl! for in an hour so great riches is made desolate. And every shipmaster, and every one that saileth any wither, and mariners, and as many as gain their living by sea, stood afar off, and cried out as they looked upon the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like the great city?

President Trump says everyone is getting along just fine. Then there was the outburst against the Canadian Prime Minister that made the news. Now read what Chancellor Merkel was saying about the weekend events.

BERLIN — At the end of a long weekend of rhetorical salvos over the G7 summit’s chaotic ending, German Chancellor Angela Merkel added her voice to the chorus, saying she found Donald Trump’s actions “sobering and a bit depressing,” while calling for more civility in international exchanges.

“The situation isn’t very nice,” Merkel told German public television in a lengthy interview. “I don’t think that ratcheting up the rhetoric is going to improve things.”

While Merkel, who has been frustrated over the past year by Trump’s decision to withdraw from international agreements including the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate accord, said she intends to engage the president, she voiced a deepening disappointment over her failure to win him over to her point of view.

“Sometimes I get the impression that the U.S. president believes that only one side wins and the other loses,” Merkel said, adding that she believes in “win-win” situations.

Her comments, which echo those of France’s Emmanuel Macron and others, highlight a growing transatlantic estrangement that Europe insists it doesn’t want but has been powerless to stop.

Merkel’s comments followed Trump’s abrupt decision via Twitter early Sunday to cancel his support for the just-agreed G7 communiqué, apparently out of anger over comments made by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a press conference.

Trump’s tweets triggered a bizarre string of appearances by his surrogates on American television. Top Trump economic adviser Larry Kudlow said Trudeau “stabbed us in the back,” suggesting that the Canadian leader’s criticism of Trump’s trade policies undermined the president before his summit meeting with North Korea.

Peter Navarro, another top counselor, abandoned any semblance of decorum, suggesting “there is a special place in hell” for Trudeau.

The latter comment prompted European Council President Donald Tusk to quip “there is a special place in heaven” for Trudeau for his organization of the G7.

Merkel said that despite the tensions at the summit’s conclusion, she remains committed to the transatlantic relationship, while sounding a note of caution.

“There are good reasons on our side to continue to fight for it but we can’t count on it anymore,” she said.

Asked why she allowed Trump to run rings around her, Merkel pointed to the EU’s retaliatory tariffs and said, “We don’t let ourselves be taken advantage of again and again.”

Merkel suggested the tensions with Washington would continue to fuel a reappraisal of Europe’s security needs. For the Continent to succeed in becoming less dependent on the U.S., European countries would have to become “more loyal” to the EU, which has to develop “its own strategic culture.”

With 2020 just 1 1/2 years away and 2020 being the middle of the 70th week or 70th Jubilee that Daniel 9 talks about, President Trump may very well succeed at making America Great again at the expense of all of the USA allies. Prophecy says that Assyria will once again destroy the tribes of Israel and put them into captivity before the Messiah comes.

You are witnessing the very break up that takes place leaving the USA on the outside and the EU forming its own path, without the USA as part of it.


Septennial Torah Readings #64

We have resumed the Septennial Torah readings on our site. We used to do them and I would comment each week.

I will give you the reading for this week and you can go and read them without my comments. Instead of them being the annual Torah readings that are done in one year, the Septennial reading is done twice over the 7 year Sabbatical cycle.

The first weeks reading would have been done on April 1, 2017. This is the start of the first week in this 4th Sabbatical cycle right after the Shemitah year was done. Since this time, this Sabbath is now the 63rd week of this Sabbatical Cycle. The readings for this Sabbath today and for this upcoming 64th week are as follows.

Week #           Shabbat Date     Torah             Neviim              Ketuvim           Brit Chadasha
64                    16/06/2018        Ex 17-18        Isaiah 12-14     Ps 123-128    John 6:28-71

65                    23/06/2018        Ex 19              Isaiah 15-19    Ps 129-131    John 7


The New Moon

From Devorah Date tree.
As was mentioned when we sent out the information on When and Where to Look for the New Moon this evening, tonight’s sighting was a very difficult one. As of this writing, we are not aware of any positive new moon sightings from Israel. If no positive reports come in, we look again tomorrow evening (15 June 2018), which will be the end of the 30th day of the month.

Are you Above the Law

How many watched Cleveland and Golden State Final NBA Basketball game Friday night? How many of you are watching normal TV programs Friday night or Sabbath? I am not talking about documentaries about the creation of this world and the marvels of this world. No, I am asking you if you’re watching the Soccer matches or the football, baseball, Hockey or any of the sports games or any of the Olympics during the Sabbath time?


How many of you make up excuses to justify the hiring of others on Sabbath to work for you? Whether they be those working in restaurants or those serving you the food or those driving the buses you hire to go from here to there, or those you hire to pump your gas and those you pay for your gas if you pumped it yourself.

I have seen those who call themselves brethren wishing people Shabbat Shalom Friday evening and then advertising about their yard sale that Saturday morning. Hypocrisy knows no bounds.

How many of you are justifying your breaking of the Sabbath or the Holy Days to hire the Pilot and Tower Control centre people, the Stewarts and ticket agents and the security people just so you can fly during the Sabbath?

After all, they do not keep the Sabbath or the Holy Days in the first place. They are the pagans. Right? But you are the Hypocrites claiming to be righteous when in truth you are not!!!

But I can hear some of you already.

Mat 12:1 At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. And His disciples were hungry, and began to pluck heads of grain and to eat. And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to Him, “Look, Your disciples are doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath!”

But He said to them, “Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him: how he entered the house of God and ate the showbread which was not lawful for him to eat, nor for those who were with him, but only for the priests? Or have you not read in the law that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath, and are blameless? Yet I say to you that in this place there is One greater than the temple. But if you had known what this means, ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the guiltless. For the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath.”

So how many of your are Levites working in the Temple Service?

Do you think that you are above the law because you are doing His work? That this qualifies you to pay people to serve you on the Sabbath so that you can get from one place to another? You’re doing His work, or that is what you tell yourself. But you have employed someone on the Sabbath to work for you. You have employed the Hotel Staff to cater to your Sabbath Keeping Group. Yes, they are working anyway and you need the facility to meet in. But do you have to pay for the place on the Sabbath? Do you have to be catered to? Can you not have your own people set up and take down the chairs.

Exodus 20:8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.

You are not to work on the Sabbath or cause someone else to work on the Sabbath for you.

When you board a bus or a train or a plane on the Sabbath your testimony is a sham. When you wish people Shabbat Shalom and then host a yard sale Saturday morning again your testimony is a sham. Everything you are about to teach or have just taught is null and void. Will anyone be healed when you pray for them? Will that group be blessed when you pray for them? WIll you have the protection of Yehovah when you pray while you are sinning?

Isa 59:1-2 Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

Your Sins Keep you from drawing closer to Yehovah.

John 9:30 The man answered and said to them, “Why, this is a marvelous thing, that you do not know where He is from; yet He has opened my eyes! Now we know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does His will, He hears him.

It is no wonder your prayers are not being heard on High. It is no wonder you are not seeing any healed when you lay hands on them.

But if you are obeying Yehovah and keeping His Torah then He will answer your prayers and heal those you pray for.

 1 John 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.

Psalm 34:17 The righteous cried, and Jehovah heard, And delivered them out of all their troubles.
Jehovah is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart, And saveth such as are of a contrite spirit.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous; But Jehovah delivereth him out of them all.

Notice it says the righteous. Those who obey and keep His commandments as you are told in Psalm 119:172 All of your commandments are righteousness.

1 John 1:9-10 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

This does not mean you say you’re sorry and then break the Sabbath the very next time it comes up. Your sins are forgiven but do not keep on going back and repeating that sin.

Heb 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and a fierceness of fire which shall devour the adversaries. A man that hath set at nought Moses law dieth without compassion on the word of two or three witnesses: of how much sorer punishment, think ye, shall he be judged worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant wherewith he was sanctified an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? For we know him that said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Proverbs 1:23 Surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you. Because I have called and you refused, I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded, Because you disdained all my counsel, And would have none of my rebuke, I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes, When your terror comes like a storm, And your destruction comes like a whirlwind, When distress and anguish come upon you. “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me. Because they hated knowledge And did not choose the fear of the Lord, They would have none of my counsel And despised my every rebuke. Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, And be filled to the full with their own fancies. For the turning away of the simple will slay them, And the complacency of fools will destroy them; But whoever listens to me will dwell safely,
And will be secure, without fear of evil.”

Brethren we are so close to the end of this age. What a shame it will be to read in the rest of the book of Acts how you failed to make it because you thought you were above the law and could do what you wanted.

How sad it will be to hear from Yehovah what He was about to bless you with but could not and did not because your sins have separated you from His hearing even your prayers. How sad it will be when He says be gone I never knew you, you workers of lawlessness. And you thought you were immune and could get away with breaking the Sabbath or the other commands.

The Fall Holy Days are coming up. Plan your time properly so that you are not travelling or flying and taking a taxi or checking in to your rooms on the Sabbath or on the Holy Day. You do not know which day is the Holy Day until the moon is sighted to begin the 7th month. So plan for both days.

Stop making excuses why you can’t obey and start to find reasons to obey. You have no good reasons to break the Sabbath by travelling on those days. None.

In the Mail

Shalom Joe,
I spoke with you a couple of weeks ago about my trying to confirm Yeshua is Yehovah.  I do understand that, but I struggled with the command to pray in His name, meaning Yeshua.

I’ll begin with this verse since we have a Hebrew translation of it even though the Shem Tob Matthew isn’t totally reliable.

Mat_28:19-20  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

You encouraged me to pray to Yehovah and close with “to Yehovah be the glory” as a substitute for “in the name of Yeshua I pray or B’shem Yeshua”.  You said to try it, test it, see if anything changes in my prayers or life.  Well, change they did.  Scripture itself seems to confirm to me now that we indeed pray only to Yehovah and I close giving glory to Him.

The next newsletter I reviewed after speaking to you is filled with little gems.  You mentioned the above passage in reference to a Sabbatical Year “rant”, that being the charge to go to all nations teaching all things, except the need to obey Sabbatical Years.  Lol.  Well this reminded me the above passage doesn’t align with the Shem Tob Hebrew Matthew version by George Howard.  It reads:

19 Go and (teach) them to carry out all the things which I have commanded you forever.

So now one has to ask, Why would Yeshua send them to “all nations” when He had previously told them to only go to “the lost sheep of the House of Yisra’?l?  He likewise directed Paul as to where to go.   I am also certain Yeshua would never tell them to baptize in a trinity of names. I bring this passage up to show the changes made to the Renewed Covenant by the Catholic Church and we have no idea what we can trust regarding other verses.

“The Scriptures” version points out the phrase added in the KJV and those translations based on it, have added the directive to go to all nations baptizing in multiple names of the trinity. There is no reason to pray “in the name” when you are already praying to Yehovah unless we need to recognize the work of Messiah in forgiveness of our sins.

I then noticed this passage:

Joh 12:12  On the next day a great crowd who had come to the festival, when they heard that ????? was coming to Yerushalayim,13  took the branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and were crying out, “Hoshia-na! Blessed is He who is coming in the Name of ????, the Sovereign of Yisra’?l!”14  And ?????, having found a young donkey, sat on it, as it has been written:15  “Do not fear, daughter of Tsiyon, see, your Sovereign is coming, sitting on the colt of a donkey.

”Here we have the people saying ‘in the Name of Yehovah, the Sovereign of Yisra’?l .  Then we see Yeshua agreeing with this statement by saying ‘see, your Sovereign is coming’. He is saying He is Yehovah, the Sovereign, and He seems to be agreeing with the statement,  ‘Blessed is He who is coming in the Name of Yehovah’.  No where do we see this corrected to Yeshua instead of Yehovah, now that Yeshua has come nor do we see Yeshua’s name added to Yehovah’s name.

Then, this was the real eye opener and provided confirmation beyond my expectation.  I have to give credit to Craig Peters in his article “The Prophet Mosheh and the Name of YHVH”. This article is listed under the “Recommended Reading” tab of Newsletter articles.


Craig explains that El Shaddai has a root of Shadad meaning a destructive force.  As Craig indicated and I verified with my own search, we almost always see Yehovah’s title of El Shaddai associated with the wrath of destruction.  Job always refers to Yah as El Shaddai in the many references in the book of Job.  We see El Shaddai in a comforting manner in this passage:

Psa 91:1-4  He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, Who abides under the shadow of the Almighty, (El Shaddai in the Hebrew) 2  He is saying of ????, “My refuge and my stronghold, My Elohim, in whom I trust!” 3  For He delivers you from the snare of a trapper, From the destructive pestilence. 4  He covers you with His feathers, And under His wings you take refuge; His truth is a shield and armour.

Now, LOOK at this!!!!  This is simply amazing and finalizes once and for all that Yeshua is Yehovah is El Shaddai and the Aleph Tav. He brings covering and deliverance as well as the wrath of destruction.

We see the Aleph Tav as the creator in the first sentence in the Torah:

Gen 1:1  In the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth.

Bereshit bara Elohim et (aleph tav) hashamayim ve’et (aleph tav) ha’arets

(The word translated ‘et’ is the Hebrew aleph tav)

The Rabbi’s struggled for millennia as to who was the Aleph Tav if there is only one Elohim. John answers this question in the first sentence of His letter.

Joh 1:1  In the beginning was the Word (aleph tav in Hebrew), and the Word (aleph tav) was with Elohim, and the Word (aleph tav) was Elohim. 2  He was in the beginning with Elohim.

So now we know “the Word” is the aleph tav is Yeshua.

Next we see John connect the Aleph Tav which was from the beginning with YHVH (Yehovah) and  “I AM” and El Shaddai. When you read Craig’s explanation that the name “I AM”  means “who is and who was and who is to come” AND that this is what the name  YHVH represents, it just comes together!

Rev 1:7  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, Am?n. 8  “I am the ‘Aleph’ and the ‘Taw’, Beginning and End,” says ???? “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”

The Greek word for ‘the Almighty’ is pantokrator G3841 meaning the omnipotent almighty absolute and universal sovereign!  In Hebrew, I believe we would see the name El Shaddai.

This is simply phenomenal to me.  This ONE verse right here in the Renewed Covenant proclaims the Aleph Tav is Yehovah is ‘I AM’ is El Shaddai.  When combined with John 1:1 we also have the linkage of the Aleph Tav to ‘the Word’, Yeshua.

And as I was writing this up to send to you, I found another verse:

Isa 53:10  But ???? 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 ???? prosper in His hand.

See that?  He (Yehovah) made HIMSELF an offering for guilt.


Thank you Joseph for all your teachings on proving Yeshua is Yehovah and your sharing this article from Craig.  Seeing Craig’s explanation of what El Shaddai and “I AM” mean and reviewing the verses for myself, makes it more clear to me.  This ONE verse says it all.

And yes, I am seeing MUCH happen since we talked two weeks ago.  I am totally convinced of praying “to the glory of YEHOVAH!”.

Now, here is another comment you make from “That Still Small Voice” and it ties in with the above.

“Eric Bissell said this time of the end is Ayin Dalet- Ayin Tav. And I can even understand this one. It is saying seal up the prophecy until people can see the Door, until people can see Jehovah, the Aleph Tav. Ayin is eye and Dalet is door. Ayin is eye and Tav is Aleph Tav, Yehovah.”

End Quote

Joseph, I wrote you before about what that dream meant from my perspective.  Totally off the wall and certainly couldn’t say any revelation behind it, but it is what I felt. In your dream the Hebrew Roots teachers are waiting for you to join them.  You are in an outer room trying to find the door apparently to join them.  I wondered WHY would you want to find this door so you could join the Hebrew Roots teachers. Well, after reading the above “gem” in this same article (you were really on a roll without realizing it), I am more convinced then ever you don’t want THAT door.  But, the DOOR you DO WANT is the door you found.  The door that leads to WHO Yehovah is and His heart; the teaching of HIS will and HIS laws via the Sabbatical and Jubilee years; the sighted moon and abiv barley FOR wave sheaf offering and not by 1st day of 1st month; the PROPER timing of ALL the Holy Days.

The TESTING that has enabled you to endure and come out stronger and smarter.  The endurance that has enabled you to share with so many to the point we stand with you by knowing and finding the TRUE DOOR that has led to Yehovah.  You found it via your persistence in seeking out the Hebrew meanings, endless studying, endless researching, learning pieces large and small from many other teachers and then the countless hours to put it all together to teach others.

THE DOOR FOUND YOU the day you stood up and said I WILL in response to who will stand in the gap.  Joseph, you FOUND the DOOR!  The DOOR is Yehovah and recognizing that Yeshua is Yehovah in the flesh and we pray TO Yehovah and not in the name of Yeshua, but in the name of Yehovah, the ONE Elohim, our Redeemer and our Deliverer!  Someday the Hebrew Roots teachers may just find that door too and start teaching the truth instead of unity in man’s traditions.

Now, I have to admit that I’m unsettled in my mind again. I did a search on “in the name” in the Renewed Covenant.  Here are some examples.

I see this in Luke:

Luk_13:35  “See, your House is left to you laid waste. And truly I say to you, you shall by no means see Me until the time comes when you say, ‘Blessed is He who is coming in the Name of ????!’ ”

Luk_19:38  saying, “ ‘Blessed is the Sovereign who is coming in the Name of ????!

When Yehovah put on flesh and came as the Lamb the first time, His name was Yeshua, Yehovah’s salvation.  When Yehovah, our Messiah, comes the 2nd time, in the flesh, He will have a name we don’t yet know, but He will still be “the Sovereign who is coming in the Name of YHVH”.

Right? Just as Yehovah Tzevuot, who brings judgement, is still the Sovereign who is coming in the Name of YHVH.

Then we see these verses:

Act_2:38  And K?pha said to them, “Repent, and let each one of you be immersed in the Name of ????? Messiah for the forgiveness of sins. And you shall receive the gift of the Set-apart Spirit.

Act_4:10  let it be known to all of you, and to all the people of Yisra’?l, that in the Name of ????? Messiah of Natsareth, whom you impaled, whom Elohim raised from the dead, by Him this one stands before you, healthy.

Act_8:16  for He had not yet fallen on any of them, but they had only been immersed in the Name of the Master ?????.

Act_9:27  But Barna?a took him and brought him to the emissaries, and told them how he had seen the Master on the way, and that He had spoken to him, and how he was speaking boldly at Dammeseq in the Name of ?????.

Act_3:6  But K?pha said, “I do not have silver and gold, but what I do possess, this I give you: In the Name of ????? Messiah of Natsareth, rise up and walk.”

The problem with these verses is we don’t know if the exact wording is accurate.  We do know we need to recognize the work of Yeshua, the Messiah, as the Lamb that took our sins upon Him to set us free.  We must know He died and resurrected from the dead.  Could the wording of several of these verse imply more of an acknowledging the work of Messiah Yeshua as the Lamb for forgiveness of sin still realizing that Yeshua IS Yehovah in the flesh.  When John in Revelations shows Yeshua is the Aleph Tav and the Aleph Tav is YHVH (Yehovah) and is ALSO El Shaddai and the “I AM”, I know there is no separate being.  They are all Yehovah in spirit or flesh.

I’m trying now to reconcile these verses and they are throwing me again; especially the final two.  In the final verse above, I can see needing the forgiveness of sin to bring deliverance from the effects of sin (disease/plague/sickness), but we’re back to praying in the name of Yeshua for healing and therefore by extension, all our prayers.

Before this study, I was seeing Yeshua as our High Priest and we needed to pray in the name of Yeshua as our intermediary between us and Yehovah.  Then, I decided Yeshua is Yehovah ,therefore Yehovah is our High Priest (in yet another ‘role’), we don’t need to pray in the name of Yeshua, but rather Yehovah, therefore all glory to Him.  The High Priest is just another ‘role’ as is Yehovah Tzevuot another ‘role’.  NOW, I have to say Acts 3:6 really stumps me if the wording is indeed accurate.

Please Help!


oh my, just had to add this.  I know I’m right…YOU’re right…..that Elijah is US.

Elijah was followed by Elisha who went on to do mightier and more works the Elijah

Then Yeshua says:

Joh 14:11  “Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, otherwise believe Me because of the works themselves.12  “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he shall do also. And greater works than these he shall do, because I go to My Father.13  “And whatever you ask in My Name, that I shall do, in order that the Father might be esteemed in the Son.14  “If you ask whatever in My Name, I shall do it.

If WE KNOW THE FATHER and that Yeshua is the LAMB of Yehovah’s salvation, but Messiah is THE FATHER in the FLESH, then we can pray confidently.

WE WILL DO MORE then Elijah and Elisha. This is our day, our time!

I’m jumping out of my chair with excitement Joe.  I can’t breath from the anxiety of excitement.  LOOK AT THIS!!!!

I really don’t think the original word is to be translated as “am in”. G1722 shows a relationship.

The Greek word G1722 has been translated to “am in”.  They SEEM TO HAVE ADDED!!!!  This Greek word shows relationship.

It could be saying this:

John 14:11  “Believe Me that I AM (not am in) the Father and the Father is Me,

OR   THE GREAT I AM !!!!!!!!

JOHN HAS to be picking up on Yeshua’s usage of “I AM” which means “YHVH”   YEHOVAH!!!!!  So it is a play on words as well

John 14:11  “Believe Me that I am  YEHOVAH the Father and the Father is Me, THE I AM,

What do you think?



I’m sorry to keep bugging you.  I’m have no one else to talk to to share this with.  You’re the only one “getting it”.  John ALREADY knows beyond any doubt that Yeshua is the aleph tav and IS YHVH and IS El Shaddai the creator. John does NOT know the term “Father” except from the Prophets that indicate in the future YHVH will be called Father. John isn’t about to suddenly see them as two separate beings.  He knows beyond a doubt Yeshua is Yehovah in the flesh and is the  I AM.


THERE ARE DEFINITE MIS-TRANSLATIONS from this GREEK.  The one is know for certain is “My Name” SHOULD BE “THE NAME”   MY is 1st person singular and it should be 2nd or 3rd person.


ALL THOSE VERSES I mentioned before about praying in the name of Yeshua for healing…..PRAY IN THE NAME for healing.  THE NAME is YEHOVAH!!!!!   So I’m thinking that

Joh 14:10  “Do you not believe that I (am ALTOGETHER – G1722) the Father, and the Father is (altogether G1722 – it shows the relationship of I to Father) Me?

The words that I speak to you I do not speak from Myself. But the Father (who stays in G1722 OR who is absolutely)   Me does His works.

Joh 14:11  “Believe Me that I ( am in  G1722 OR absolutely am)  the Father and the Father (in  G1722   altogether absolutely is) Me, otherwise believe Me because of the works themselves.

(NOTICE THAT reference back to his works of giving sight to the blind and raising from the dead…only Messiah can do this and the prophets show us this is Yehovah)

Joh 14:12  “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes

in (G1519 – different word)

Me, the works that I do he shall do also. And greater works than these he shall do, because I go to My Father.

Joh 14:13  “And whatever you ask

(in  G1722 ? altogether and absolutely as)

My (G3588 – WRONG!   It is 2nd or 3rd person.  Is translated as  THE or THIS or THAT  I don’t think  MY qualifies at all. That is 1st person singular!!!)

Name, that I shall do, in order that the Father might be esteemed in (G1722 (same word always translated as “in”    – absolutely altogether) the Son.

Joh 14:14  “If you ask whatever in   (altogether same absolute) My  (G3588  – Should be translated as THE) Name, I shall do it.

NOW, in looking over Acts 3:6 in the name of jesus christ of nazareth rise up and walk

THE NAME is translated correctly.  THE is using G3588 which is translated incorrectly as MY in the above verses.  It is indeed THE NAME….

As to the rest, I don’t know if it is accurate or added by the pope.  I suspect it was added.  I simply can not see them healing in the name of Yeshua when JOHN (which seems to be a more trustworthy book) makes it clear to use THE NAME and THE NAME is and always will be YEHOVAH!


I AM That I AM – Obviously

I have taken this teaching from Nehemia on Gordon’s Nehemia’s Wall. https://www.nehemiaswall.com/the-great-i-am-revealed

It is the first half of the teaching and it is such an amazing teaching. As he says it is so obvious, but I had never been shown this before. So now this is my attempt at explaining it to you using some of his words and all of his charts. After reading this do go and watch the video. “Copyrighted material used by permission of Nehemia Gordon”.

The last half of this teaching from John 8:58 are my own words and not those of Nehemia.

In Exodus 3:14 we are told the name of Yehovah.

And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

The words I AM THAT I AM  are found in the strong’s as

H1961  hyh  ha^ya^h  haw-yaw’

A primitive root (compare H1933); to exist, that is, be or becomecome to pass (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary): – beacon, X altogether, be (-come, accomplished, committed, like), break, cause, come (to pass), continue, do, faint, fall, + follow, happen, X have, last, pertain, quit (one-) self, require, X use.

H834   rca   ‘a?sher   ash-er’

A primitive relative pronoun (of every gender and number); whowhichwhatthat; also (as adverb and conjunction) whenwherehowbecausein order that, etc.: – X after, X alike, as (soon as), because, X every, for, + forasmuch, + from whence, + how (-soever), X if, (so) that ([thing] which, wherein), X though, + until, + whatsoever, when, where (+ -as, -in, -of, -on, -soever, -with), which, whilst, + whither (-soever), who (-m, -soever, -se). As it is indeclinable, it is often accompanied by the personal pronoun expletively, used to show the connection.

H1961  hyh  ha^ya^h  haw-yaw’

A primitive root (compare H1933); to exist, that is, be or becomecome to pass (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary): – beacon, X altogether, be (-come, accomplished, committed, like), break, cause, come (to pass), continue, do, faint, fall, + follow, happen, X have, last, pertain, quit (one-) self, require, X use.

Here it is according to the Strongs edition.

hyh rca hyh Ahayeh Asher Ahayeh

And here it is again with the implied Aleph for “I”.

hyha rca hyha Ahayeh Asher Ahayeh

In the English, this is translated as I AM THAT I AM has Sent me and that I AM has sent me. Now this expression I AM is further translated into English to be the words LORD all spelt with capital letters to show it is supposed to be GOD.

So many people say the great I AM or THE LORD when they refer to the Creator.

Please look in the Chumash or the Strongs or the Interlinear translations and learn your Hebrew letters. I use large letters so you can see them.

Here it is again with the vowel pointing.

And below are the Hebrew Vowel Pointing that I have taken from our teaching series by Uri Harel which you can view at our Vimeo site.

So, now practice saying Ehyeh Ashur Ehyeh out loud.

We then read what Yehovah says to Moses on what His name is.

Exodus 3:14 Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, Jehovah, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name forever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

The word Jehovah here is YHVH and in Hebrew is spelt hwhy.  But in my translation, I am using above which is the English Standard version, they have Jehovah hwhy YHVH and not hyha Ehyeh.

How did they go from I AM to Yehovah in that one sentence?  Yehovah YHVH (Yod Heh Vav Heh).

I understand there are many people with many versions of how to say the name. And they have gotten it from various sources. I want to walk you through the proper Hebrew Grammar and see if we can learn a few things along the way.

Many modern versions of the bible will have Jehovah instead of Yehovah. The J used to be sounded out like the Y as in Yoseph. Today I am called Joseph. Now the Yeh sound has become the Jeh sound.

When you speak and understand Hebrew the relationship between these two words, these two names is OBVIOUS. But you and I do not speak Hebrew so we must walk through this exercise in order to learn what the name of our Father is.

Ex 3:14 Ehyeh Ashur Ehyeh

Ehyeh has sent me to you

Ex 3:15 YHVH this is my name forever

Hoveh Hayah Yiyeh He is, He was and He will be.

Now to learn some Hebrew Grammar

Ehyeh is not the name. It is the key to His name. HYH hyh “to be”


Ehyeh tells us the root of the word. All Hebrew words have a three letter root in them. This word EHYEH has the root HYH hyh as the root.

This verse also tells us the Conjugation of the word and that conjugation is Qal. There are 7 conjugations that could be used which is taught to you in Hebrew grammar. But by looking at the word Ehyeh a person who knows Hebrew knows this word is from the Qal conjugation which is key to understanding the name. Qal means easy or basic.

There are the EYTAN Letters which are the 4 prefixes of future (imperfect) verbs.

The Eytan letters are

Aleph a I will

Yod  y  He Will

Tav  She Will

Nun  n We Will

By adding any one of these letters to the beginning of a future verb you change it from I will, to He will or she will or we will. Just by changing this one letter.

And this is where we get the EYTN letters Eytan acrostic from the abbreviation of the first letters.

Now, as soon as you see this you will begin to know something is going on.

In Exodus 3 Yehovah is saying I am that I am. Ehyeh ashur Ehyeh. And then in the very next verse, Yehovah says YHVH hwhy  That yod of YHVH is obvious in Hebrew and is coming from Yihyeh for He will Be.

Now the next question is why is His name YHVH and not YHYH? Again why is His name spelt hwhy and not hyhy? Where did the vav w come from? And again for the Hebrew speaking person, this is obvious.

When we look at the spelling of the word Yihyeh verses YHVH the difference is the yod for the vav. Where did the Vav come from. It comes from the present tense of the verb “to be”.

Now you have Yihyeh and Hoveh.

Do keep in mind what Rabbi Yoseph Bechor Shor said on Exodus 3:14.

Where did the Rabbi get the HAYAH from?


And now here is the part that was just too obvious to talk about. But when Nehemiah shared this it absolutely blew my mind at just how obvious and just how simple this is to know the proper pronunciation of the name of our Father.

Yi Hov ah YiHovah

The Yod of Yihyeh, the Hov Hoveh and the ah Hayah. Yihovah.

This is so obvious to Jews based on the Hebrew grammar alone.

Here is the video of Nehemia teaching what I have shared with you above.

New Testament I AM- Again Obvious

John 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was born, I am.

Before Abraham was Eg-o I-mee in the Greek which does not help us to know exactly what was being said by Yehshua and what was meant by the saying I AM.

Yehshua was Jewish and speaking Hebrew not Greek.

I believe Yehshua said before Abraham was “I AM”,  which is obvious for hwhy .

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

That WORD was Yehovah, hwhy and became flesh as we are told in John 1:14

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father), full of grace and truth.

Read once again carefully what Isaiah 9 is telling us.

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Prov 30:4 Who has ascended to heaven and come down? Who has gathered the wind in His hands? Who has bound up the waters in His cloak? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is the name of His Son— surely you know!

The answer is Yehovah!

This child that is to be born was to be Yehovah the Father.

Deut 6:4 Hear, O Israel: Jehovah our God is one Jehovah: and thou shalt love Jehovah thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

One God and His name is Yehovah not two gods or a trinity of gods. ONE God.

We read in Micah 5:2  that this one who is to come from Bethlehem that His goings forth are from of old, from everlasting. Who is that?

But thou, Beth-lehem Ephrathah, which art little to be among the thousands of Judah, out of thee shall one come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting.


Yihyeh Hoveh Hayah, He who will be, He who is, and He who was. This is the one whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting.

Now read again Mat 1:23

Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, And they shall call his name Immanuel; which is, being interpreted, God with us.

Now reconsider Hebrew 13:8

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and to-day, yea and for ever.

It is the same as Yehovah only backwards. Yihyeh Hoveh Hayah, He who will be, He who is, and He who was.

In Revelation, it too says the one who is, Hoveh; Who was, Hayah;  Who is to come, Yihyeh.

Rev 1:7 Behold, he cometh with the clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they that pierced him; and all the tribes of the earth shall mourn over him. Even so, Amen.
I am the Alpha and the Omega, saith the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.

Notice also that He is coming as the Shekinah in the clouds and He is the one whom we pierced. Who was that? We know Him as Yehshua and as Jesus. But in truth it was Yehovah.

Psalm 22:12 Many bulls have compassed me; Strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.
They gape upon me with their mouth, As a ravening and a roaring lion.
I am poured out like water, And all my bones are out of joint: My heart is like wax; It is melted within me.
My strength is dried up like a potsherd; And my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; And thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
For dogs have compassed me: A company of evil-doers have inclosed me; They pierced my hands and my feet.
I may count all my bones; They look and stare upon me.
They part my garments among them, And upon my vesture do they cast lots.

Zechariah 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplication; and they shall look unto me whom they have pierced; and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his first-born.

Also, I wanted to point out in Rev 1:7 that He is the Alpha and the Omega. In Hebrew, this would be the Aleph and the Tav. It is also written as the First and the Last.

Rev 1:7 Behold, he cometh with the clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they that pierced him; and all the tribes of the earth shall mourn over him. Even so, Amen.
I am the Alpha and the Omega, saith the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.

Rev 1:17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as one dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying, Fear not; I am the first and the last, and the Living one; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive for evermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.

Rev 1:11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

Rev 2:8 And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: These things saith the first and the last, who was dead, and lived again:

Rev 22:13 Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to render to each man according as his work is. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.

These scripture in revelation are a direct relation to those found in Isaiah.

Isaiah 41:4 Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I, Jehovah, the first, and with the last, I am he. The isles have seen, and fear; the ends of the earth tremble; they draw near, and come.

Isaiah 44:6 Thus saith Jehovah, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer, Jehovah of hosts: I am the first, and I am the last; and besides me there is no God.

Isaiah 48:12 Hearken unto me, O Jacob, and Israel my called: I am he; I am the first, I also am the last. Yea, my hand hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spread out the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together.

Do you understand what it is you are reading? It was Yehovah that we killed on the Tree and pierced. He was the First and the Last, the Aleph and the Tav that died for us. Yehshua is Yehovah.

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
The Father Revealed
“If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”
Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.”
Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.

Yeshua also said He was the way and the Truth: I am the way and the truth and the life. The Hebrew word for truth is emet: tma It contains the first letter Aleph a the middle letter Mem and the last letter Tav of the Hebrew alphabet. The Jewish sages say that this implies that the truth contains everything from Aleph to Tav:

The Hebrew word emet has a more concrete meaning than the English word for “truth” (the English word derives from the Greek/Western view of truth as a form of correspondence between language and reality, but invariably languished over epistemological questions that led, ultimately, to skepticism). In the Hebraic mindset, the person who acts in emet is one who can be trusted (Gen. 24:49? 42:16? 47:26? Josh. 2:14). Actions, speech, reports, or judgment are emet because they are reliable (Dt. 13:14? 22:20? 1 Kings 10:6? 22:16? Pr. 12:19? Zech. 8:16). If a seed is a seed of emet, its quality is trustworthy (Jer. 2:21).

In the Tanakh, emet is often coupled with chesed, covenant faithfulness, which designates God’s loyalty in fulfilling his promises and his covenant. For example, God’s emet and chesed were majestically revealed in giving the covenant at Sinai (Ex. 34:6).

The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, long suffering, and abundant in goodness and truth (Exodus 34:6).

Indeed, Pilate’s question, “What is truth?” is a category mistake, since truth is not about “what” but about “Who.” That is, truth is not something objective and static, a thing to be known and studied from a distance. No. Truth is essentially personal. It is personal disclosure of the character of the subject. Understood in this way, truth is a way of living, a mode of existence, a relational truth.

Interestingly, Aleph and Tav form a unique word that functions as a “direct object marker” in the both Biblical and modern Hebrew:  ta 

As it is written in Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God (ALEPH/TAV) created the heavens and the earth.”

Considered this way, Jesus is the Direct Object of the Universe, the End (sof) of all of creation. And not only is Jesus the End of all creation, but He is the “Beginning of the Creation of God,” the Creator and Sustainer of all things: “For by him were all things created that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible.

    If I do say so myself, everyone needs to read this newsletter. The teachings Nehemiah and you have done on proving Yeshua is Yehovah is amazing. This newsletter finalizes that we also pray in the name of Yehvovah for healing. And “My name” should me “The name” YEHOVAH! GREAT FIND on pointing out this verse that Everylasting Father is referring to the son….
    Isa_9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
    Here is another verse showing the connection of Yehovah and Yeshua as ONE YEHOVAH…ONE KING
    Jeremiah10:10 But YEHOVAH is the true God, he is the living God, and AN EVERLASTING KING: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.
    Awhile back I heard people espousing the 10 part teaching of another Messianic Rabbi. They tried to tell me about a greater God and a lesser God is how Yehovah and Yeshua are portrayed in Scripture. The greater God disappears and doesn’t reappear until the end of Scripture. I knew from this statement the more they said, this really opens up Scripture and makes sense, that I knew NOT to listen to this teaching else I’d be brainwashed into this craziness too. I stick with you Joseph because you search everything out and then I double search you. I’ve been led astray far too often in my past from too many other teachers. I don’t have time to fool around with these other teachers anymore. Too little time. Too much at stake.

    Dear Sighted Moon readers,
    The crescent of the Shawwal moon was seen in Saudi Arabia on Thursday evening by the moon-sighting committee. Therefore, Friday will be first day of Eid Al Fitr.
    Wam, the UAE’s news agency confirmed on Thursday evening that Friday will be the first day of Eid Al Fitr.
    Brethren, the last great prophet of Allah, Mohammad, peace be upon him, brought Allah’s revelations to mankind. Please, read Allah’s holy work the Quran. Islam is not the enemy as Mr. Joe Dumond claims. It is the divine truth of Allah as revealed though his holy prophet, peace be upon him, Mohammad. Christianity is paganism brethren. Wake up!
    The Peace of Allah and his last great prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him),

    Joseph, I had to add this comment. Under Library Article Archives / Yehovah, Our Elohim is “My Journey to find the Door” and “The Threshold Covenant”.
    Here is what you mention in “My Journey”:
    Yehshua told us to Pray to the Father and never once did He say to pray to Yeshua or to Jesus.
    Luke 11:1 Now it came to pass, as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, that one of
    His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.” So He said to them, “When you pray, say:
    Our Father in heaven,
    Hallowed be Your name.
    Your kingdom come.
    Your will be done
    On earth as it is in heaven.
    I did think of this passage myself, but I didn’t take the time to actually go read it at the time you wrote this. During my study I did. Our brainwashing has once again been exposed! The major aspect of this passage, however, is just what you point out. There is no mention of ending with “In the name of Yeshua”.
    Here is Peter, the one Yeshua himself choose and taught. Peter asks How to Pray to the Father. Now, surely, SOMEWHERE in ALL his teaching to the disciples, He would have indicated the need to pray to the Father THROUGH, or IN THE NAME of Yeshua for our prayers to be answered. Furthermore, He sent them out to heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers. Not once does He bother to tell them they need to say IN THE NAME OF YESHUA must be a part of every miracle. Throughout the gospels, Yeshua gives the distinct impression they always pray TO the Father and NEVER any need to pray in MY (Yeshua’s) name.
    Isn’t that kinda important if indeed it IS THAT important?
    It sure seems like the Pope is adding all the In the name of Jesus phrases .
    So I then did a search on “In the Name” and here is what I saw. Well, I won’t include all of this here because it is too lengthy, but I encourage your readers to do this. Separate the verses between the Tanach, the Gospels, and the remaining books.
    You will quickly notice David prays to Yehovah and he has no clue to this idea of needing to end prayers with “in the name of Yeshua”. YET, He is going to be our King during the millennial kingdom. Yehovah inspired him with so much prophecy in the Psalms and of a future redeemer and yet didn’t inspire him with this. Hmm.
    You will then notice that only the writings of Paul indicate in the name of Jesus or Christ. They do this primarily with using “IN MY NAME” when it SHOULD READ “IN THE NAME” which brings us back to YEHOVAH and not Yeshua.

    Shalom Joseph and Jan,
    It’s a glory to Yehovah to observe iron sharpening iron in the interaction between the pair of you. It blesses the brethren.
    You hinted at this teaching on The Sukkot tour in 2016. I have been attempting to build meat on the bones since. I appreciate the clarity this week’s newsletter brings Joseph.
    Thankyou both!!
    Shalom from the Irish ,

      Thank you for your kind words Frank. I have a LOT of Irish in me too. Sometimes, the timing has to be just right. I read all his articles and could see them clearly saying Yehovah is Yeshua, but I was still totally stumped due to the “in MY name’ needing to be prayed so many times. Why would Yeshua say we had to pray this way if indeed we didn’t pray in the name of Yeshua…His name. And we see Peter saying to rise up in the name of Jesus and walk. We’ve been brainwashed with the idea that Yeshua is our High Priest and therefore we pray in Yeshua’s name as our intermediary. It took all these teachings and the breakdown of the words to see it. The MY is so clearly mistranslated and should be THE. All throughout Scripture we see MY NAME as being Yehovah. This ties together all the Scripture and teachings from Joseph Dumond and Nehemiah Gordon. Having said this, it was when I took Joseph up on ending my prayers with all glory to Yehovah that THIS TIMING became THE TIME. I picked up an article to read and the verse THIS TIME just drove me forward for a week of research into this to prove to myself. Now it is settled in my mind. This confusion of Father and Son has been with me for decades! So do as Joseph said, and take him up on it….JUST TRY IT….see what happens. btw Frank…I’m a SMITH TOO from my Mother. We’re all siblings.

    I am going to have to spend some time with this. Yes Yeshua is YHWH but He cannot be the Father. There are two in Gen. 1 then in Gen. 2 there is only YHWH.

  6. Glenn Caron

    I do see that Yeshua IS and was The GOD of the Old testament who met with Abraham , who met with Jacob, Moses saw his back , He spoke to Moses and Abraham. God /Yeshua also spoke and was seen by the 70 elders at Mt Sinai. So in light of that and how The “ECHAD” and the scripture about the Shema , how do these below verses settle this matter.
    Ev Joh_1:18 No one has seen God at any time; the Only-begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
    1Jn_4:12 No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwells in us, and His love is perfected in us.
    ANd finally this one….Joh_5:37 And He sending Me, the Father Himself, has borne witness of Me. Neither have you heard His voice at any time nor seen His shape.
    As I have mentioned before …. The ALMIGHTY one is not the creator but the Planner who has not been seen nor heard but Yeshua has been given ALL things including the TITLE of the MOST HIGH albeit for a time but MUST give it back at THE END… to the real ALMIGHTY GOD the real FATHER of ALL . WHEN the “jews” finally see that there is NO contradiction on the SHEMA about this , THEN they will unite with the rest of their brothers and fellow Israelites who KEEP the TORAH and have the testimony of YESHUA. The 2 sticks WILL become one again.

    There is a lot to absorb here. TO MUCH FOR JUST ONE READ. Moses was barred from the Promised land for not giving credit to the Father when he struck the rock. I wonder if there is some connection to praying in Yehshua’s name as oppose to this . Just a thought.
    Great article as always
    Shabbat Shalom

    AMEN Joe, thanks for putting this all together in one spot. This is where my head has been at (it is also a bit lonely here) for a while now, thanks to your teachings and those of Eric Bissel and learning what I can of Hebrew. In the shema, echad is one. ( this would have been a good time to introduce the second “god” if there was one, there isn’t so He didn’t). The man on the stake was YHVH himself. I slew YHVH by my sins. And by His shed blood I am washed clean!
    This was exciting to read your article. It didn’t come from my own head. I’ve been struggling with this for a while. The “new” testament doesn’t seem to match up with the “old” in certain respects. It is like they went and created a new golden calf for themselves. Maybe this is actually what happened. I’m speculating now but is it possible that the “christians” did just that. Made a new golden calf with the name of Jesus.
    The problem is the english translations. If we only could understand what He said and what He meant in the original language. Not from a translated point of view but actually a deep understanding but because we “know it” like the language of our upbringing.
    To the glory of YAH.
    Shalom all.

    • Joseph F. Dumond

      Funny you should say this. Next weeks article is about the Golden Calf. Had not considered what you have said here in that respect. Now rethinking some of this.

  9. Jordan

    I have a question, if it is Yehovah then why does it say HalleluYah? and not HalleluYeh?

    • Joseph F. Dumond

      IN Hebrew, the Yeh at the beginning of the name is always pronounced Yeh as in the yod.
      But when Yehovahs name is at the end of the word it is almost always pronounced as Yah.
      Look at Jerimiah Yeh rimi Yah.

      • Jordan

        Thank you so much that explains a LOT!

      • Roger Gloux

        Mr. Dumond: Either you are guessing or Nehem-YaH Gordon has you bamboozled. You are also accepting what the Masoretes did for vowel points. They are the Karaites.
        The vowels in the NAME “YHVH”, written in Aramaic Square Script, is YeHoVaH. The reason these vowels show up is for the express purpose of warning the “Jewish” reader not to pronounce the NAME but instead to use the replacement “Adonai”, which actually means “my Lord”.
        When the Catholics got this, they didn’t know the vowels were a warning, so wrote IeHoUaH the same as the William Tyndale translation of 1534. King James used William Tyndales translation and edited a number of things one of which is the NAME JeHoVaH. The letter “J” had the same phonetic sound as the letter “Y” or the Capital ” i “.
        You accept Nehem-YaH Gordon’s explanation, now listen to this…….

        • Joseph F. Dumond

          Video deleted by me.

          • Roger Gloux

            I’m sorry you deleted the video that shows what happened.
            At first I followed Nechem-YaH Gordon because I didn’t know any Hebrew.
            Just recently Nechem-YaH has stated it is YaH on the end of a compound name and YeHO on the beginning of a compound Name. Prior to the beginning of his Ministry, whenever he came across the NAME ???? he never pronounced it but said “adonai” which was automatic tradition as he exclaimed in one of his videos. That means what he now knows is only recent investigation.
            Interestingly the Professors at the University of Jerusalem say it is YaHWeH as pointed out in the video.
            Several times before he made the book with Keith Johnson, he actually said YaHWeH without thinking. As Mark Twain once said, ” Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”
            I can see your studious, which is a good thing, but best check out the other side of the coin and see where the vowels come from in the Aramaic YHVH. Being you are French, I know you can read this Greek transliteration….. IAOUE.

  10. Basar Al Wazi

    Dear readers of Sighted Moon,
    Yeshua was only a prophet of Allah, the most gracious creator of the universe and NOT GOD! There is only one sovereign creator and it is Allah!! Mohammad, peace be upon him, is the last great messenger of Allah and revealed the truth of Allah, most merciful and powerful in the revelations of the most holy of books, the Quran.
    Please come out of your idol worship because when you worship a man as Allah in Yeshua you are incurring the wrath of Allah!!
    Peace upon all you and may you come to the truth of Allah!
    Basar Al Wazi

    Shalom Joseph.
    And Thank you again! You never cease to astound. You have shown that the Father and the Son are One. You prove that! The Shekinah Glory will return and dwell amongst us. You proved that! Clear as a bell! Amazing! Wonderful! Thank you.
    Before I go into my comment there is something I need to share and give thanks to Yahovah for. I have no one else to tell.
    Blessed be Yahovah forever! Great and powerful is He. He does wonderous things for those who choose to obey. I have been learning to obey, stumbling and struggling, but for the past eight years I have been on this path, hoping to reignite my youthful faith in God.
    Friday night, 6 hours into the Sabbath Day, I received a most wonderful email. I had been reading your newsletter, stopping many times to consider what you say. After, many hours of doing this, I grew tired and decided to sleep. I dropped my head to pray. Within seconds I heard the familiar sound from my phone telllng me I had mail. It startled me. No one sends me emails at night. I immediately picked up the phone to see who it was. Amazingly, it was from my daughter! She has not spoken to me in over nine years!
    It was the most beautiful message of love and forgiveness; truly healing words! Something I could never have expected! Something I desperately needed. The love of my daughter!
    No one on earth could have gotten that child to contact me! Many have tried. I have done nothing to earn her love or respect. Yet, there it was!
    Only Yahovah could have arranged this! And in my heart of hearts, I KNOW that it is only because I choose to follow Torah, that He would even CONSIDER doing this for me. Thanks be to Yahovah. Thanks be to all who have helped me learn,- that means you and your team, Joseph. Thank you all.
    I pray that what I say next is according to the Will of Yahovah. I may not be able, to quote chapter and verse yet, and I lack knowledge to discuss Hebraic interpretation of Scripture but, I can tell the difference between reality and silly speculation; between devotion to Yahovah and self-centered religious showmanship; between truth and lies.
    It is not enough for me to give a consenting nod to belief; nor to follow those who claim to know and serve God; nor to work at converting others to a fairy tale. I had tried all of that in my youth. Useless waste!
    I need to KNOW what our Creator has given us to learn. And I must DO what He expects ME to do. Everything else is pretense and wishful thinking.
    Certain questions have been important to me in my struggle to know Truth.
    What Name are we to use when we pray? (Arfter all, I do not want to pray to a false god.)
    What does it mean to pray in a name of….? What does “in the name of” mean?
    What is it to “believe”?
    What does it mean to keep the Sabbath Day holy?
    You confirm that there is only One Creator Being, the Maker and Sustainer of Life and all that is. His ultimate plan is to make His abode with us! He will live with us and Govern in fairness! Wow! A far cry from how it is today!
    A few days ago a friend asked me what I think of the Catholic Church. I said, “I think it is the most evil organization that has ever existed on Earth”.
    (I was raised Catholic.) That does not mean that I think Catholics are all evil; only that they have been duped by a corrupt organization that attempts to usurp the Authority of Yahovah. Perhaps even to the point of changing Scripture! But not enough to keep the Truth hidden forever!
    He then asked if I think God is a Trinity. I said, “No. No more than I think you are a trinity. You are one person. You are created in the image and likeness of God. You are not three people, so obviously, The Creator is not three people. He is One person just as you are one person.” Perhaps that is an overly simplistic point of view but, to me it is plain logic.
    Yet, Scripture seems to suggest that there is a plurality in the Sovereign. And this is a problem.
    The very first reference to the Creator is Genesis 1:1 where it says, “In the beginning God  (H430) created the heaven and the earth.”
    H430 is Elohim. That’s plural! So, how can God be one yet, be plural?
    Then again in verse 26 it says,  “And God (H430) said, “Let us make  man in our image, after our likeness:…”” That again is Elohim and He is referring to Himself in the plural! “Us”. “Our”. How can this be?
    I’ve heard the explanations about a greater and a lesser God. Nonsense! And I’ve heard the explanations about the Family of God and the God-Head. To me, this is not at all satisfactory.
    Throughout the Bible we read that God is One. To me that means one person. These explanations do not resolve the question. They ignore many passages of Scripture. So, there must be some other way to reconcile these seeming contradictions.
    Your teaching proves Biblically, from a Hebrew perspective, that there is One Creator. Thank you for the confirmation. Yet, the question remains; why does Elohim refer to Himself in the plural? And why does the Messiah speak of the Father in the second and third person?
    I am certainly open to learn the Hebrew perspective on this. However, the answer that satisfies me comes from exanining Gen. 1:26, in light of extrabiblical sources. “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:…”
    What does it mean that we are made ‘in the image and likeness” of Elohim? Does Elohim have Two legs, two eyes and a nose? Is that it? Or is there something more profound? What characteristics of Elohim are also characteristic of man? And if Elohim is somehow a plurality, are we also?
    Perhaps you will think that my answers to these questions are foolish. But, I had no one to ask and had no understanding of Hebrew Scriptures. I sought Truth and needed to answer those questions without help. And I have, I think. Much of what I see comes from outside the Bible but, ultimately has led me to the Bible. And as you often show, non-biblical knowledge can sometimes confirm Biblical Truth.
    So, this is my opinion and it resolves the conflict completely, for me. Yet, I am open to correction,- I have no tradition to uphold. Here is the solution as I see it. I will try to put it as succinctly as possible. Please bear with me.
    One Being created everything that exists. This makes me wonder where did He create it? Where are we? Where is the universe?
    Since all things are created by Him, there is no place outside of Him. Therefore, everything that exists, must be in Him. I think Scripture verifies this and tells us He sustains the universe in his Being. Scripture also tells us He did it with His Word through His Holy Spirit.
    When I think about what it means to be made in the image and likeness of Elohim, I see a comparison to Him through His process of Creating.
    I see that our capacity to give and keep our word is a characteristic not unlike Him! Think about it. What is a man? How is he different from the animals? I think it has to do with how man is capable of doing things.
    How does man accomplish anything? First he has an idea, let’s say, to build a house for his family. So, he decides to act on that idea and says, ‘I am going to build that house.’ Then he puts out energy and takes action to do what he has given his word to do, and he builds the house. Can an animal do that? Is this not what Elohim does?
    Humans work together by giving and keeping their word to one another,- often in the form of a written contract. Elohim does the same. He obviously considered what He would do before He Created everything. He thought about it! Then he spoke His intention, gave His Word. Then He poured out His Energy and did what He gave His Word to do. Voila! Creation!
    He tells us what he will do. He gives His word. Sometimes He gives us a blood contract to establish that He lays His Life on the line to accomplish what He has promised to do. And He gives us Scripture to record His Will, His Word and His Doings.
    We are capable of doing likewise. And Yashua showed us how to use that human capacity and put to Right use.
    Elohim is the Thinker Who thought everything up; He is the Speaking,- the Word,- the Promise that defines and assures that He will do His own Intention. He is the Energy, the Doing Force that accomplishes all that He sets out to do.
    He gave His Word to Create. He set out to do as He said He would do. His spirit moved upon the waters. His Energy made everything that is, according to His Word, which is according to His Intention: His Will.
    The Thinker is not the thought. But the thought and the Thinker are One. The Doing of the thoughts of the Thinker requires energy. The Energy is not the Thought nor the Thinker. But the Thinker and the Thought and the Energy are all One. These three aspects are in Elohim, the Ultimate Being. He is the Being, the Speaking and the Doing. He is One.
    The Father is the Being, the Son is the Speaking and the Holy Spirit is the Doing. And they are all one Person. Just as you are one person who thinks to do, who says you will do, and then goes ahead and does what you say you will do. So, when Elohim speaks of Himself in the plural He is giving us a clue as to our own nature, which He created in His image.
    When Elohim speaks of Himself in the plural He is giving us a clue as to our own nature, which He created IN HIS IMAGE!
    When Yashua speaks of the Father in the second or third person He is speaking of the Intended Purpose for which He is Being in the world. He is the Father,- as the Son. He speaks to Himself when He prays in Gethsemane, just as we might speak to ourselves when struggling with an issue. He is tempted to forgo the plan… but, obedient to His Word, His Intention, He accepts the awful fate He is about to endure. He submits Himself unto death; a Perfectly Innocent substitute for us.
    By the act of laying down His Life, He becomes the first human worthy of Resurrection, opening a possibility for all humans to follow His example. We have been given the opportunity to become like Him; to become worthy to enter through the narrow gate. The problem is, we do not align our word with His. We do what WE think is right, not what He tells us to do. We take on sorting out for ourselves what is good to do and what is not.
    And this is sin. It is sin because it accuses God of not knowing what He is doing. We are saying that we know better than He. It is the same thing Eve does in the Garden
    Scripture tells us that He created us to be greater than the angels. The angels didn’t like that. So, instead of watching over us and assisting us to become greater than they, the angels interfered with His Creation. And to this day, they work diligently to lead us, with lies, to our destruction, so that we will not be greater than they are.
    Why is it that the wages of sin is death? Simply because the Creator will not sustain the existence of anything or anyone which would interfere with His Creation. Why would He? His Creation is to be Perfect even as He is Perfect. How then could He sustain imperfection?
    John tells us that in the beginning was the Word. The Word is God and everything is made through the Word. That the Word became flesh and lived on the earth. And that He will come again in glory. You show us what that really means in terms of end time prophecy. Thank you.
    Yet, I believe there is more.
    20th century German philosopher, Martin Heidegger observed that in the most creative of activities of mankind, being precedes thought. Thought is language. Thinking is impossible without Language. But it occurs within Being. Being is greater than language. Yet, language is the mechanism by which anything gets done. And with language, Being has a way to experience Itself. So, Being is the house of Language yet, Language is the house of Being. They are inextricably intertwined. Each exists in the other.
    Helen Keller, once she learned to communicate, spoke about what it was like to have no language. She said that before she attained her first distinct word, “water”, life was merely raw experience. She could not distinguish one thing from another. Hunger, fatigue, sound etc. were just raw unidentifiable experiences because she had no way to hold one experience apart from the others: she had no language. All things were without form to her and therefore, without meaning. But a teacher poured water over one of her hands while signing the word for water on the other hand. Eventually, it dawned on her that the sign, the word, identified the experience. She said that upon receiving this first distinction, water, the whole universe opened up to her. She then became hungry to know the names of everything.
    Like her, our experience of Life depends on our ability to Language.
    Being uses Language to create.
    John 1 speaks of this idea when he speaks about the Word; that the Word was ‘with’ God and ‘was’ God and that all things come to be ‘through the Word’.
    The ultimate Creator Being we call Yahovah. His Word made flesh, physically manifested, we call Yashua. The Spirit that moved within the manifestation, we call the Holy Spirit. It is the same spirit that eminates from the Father, the Ultimate Creator Being. It is what accomplishes the Will of the Creator.
    All three are one person. All three are Him. They are not three entities. They are the One Creator employing aspects of Himself,- His Will, His Word and His Energy or Holy Spirit. And this, I think is how we are like Him. We can exercise the will to do something. We can decide,- give our word to do it. And we can pour out the energy to get it done.
    When He Returns in Glory, the Essence of Yahovah will be present as Yahovah in Shekinah Glory,- and It will be Yashua,- and It will be the Holy Spirit. It seems to us like they are three different things but, that is not true. They are all One person expressing different aspect of Himself.
    So, why do they appear to be three different identities? The answer to that, I think, is two-fold. First, because of the way He refers to Himself. He knows that He is the Being in which His Word arises and that His Word embodies His Creative Energy, or Spirit. So, the word ‘Elohim’ expresses that. He is the Royal We! He is not speaking to another entity in Genesis 1:26. He is instructing parts of Himself.
    Second, our limited ability to perceive beyond the space and time into which we are bound, prevents us from seeing reality. We can’t see our Creator from within the three dimensional world.
    Sound like nonsense? Look at this.
    Chuck Missler points out that Rabbis who study the deep things of the Torah have identified 10 dimensions alluded to in Scripture. He adds that scientists have come to the same conclusion. So, why does that matter? What is a dimension? Here’s an analogy that sheds light on the nature of our three dimensional existence and why we cannot comprehend the entirety of Our Creator.
    A one dimensional being, if there were such a thing, would only have perceptive mechanisms to be aware of one dimension. It could only see along a single straight line. It cannot look sideways or up and down,- only the pinpoint directly in front of it. Therefore, if it were to observe you it would be forced to see you as a succession of points.
    For instance, it would see a pinpoint of the tip of an ear, then pinpoint by pinpoint it would scan across your face seeing part of your temple, your eye, then you nose, another eye and temple and ear,- then nothing.
    It would be forced, due to its limited perceptive ability, to see you OVER TIME. It might say to itself, “I saw this living thing that started out as a spot, then a series of different spots that then changed back to the same series of spots, in reverse order until it disappeared. It’s life was over.” Depending on the length of time it took for it to scan your face it would determine how long you lived, by its reckoning. In the meantime, you go on living!
    By the same token, if suddenly its perceptive abilities became two dimensional, it would see you on a plane. It could perceive width, but not height. Therefore, if it looked at you it would see you as successive slices OVER TIME. The top of your head, your forehead, brows, eyes, etc all the way down to your feet. It would be forced, by virtue of its limited perceptive abilities, to see you beginning as a slice of a head and ending as a slice of your feet,- never comprehending you, as you really are. It might conclude that you were born as hair, became a belly and then, died as a toenail.
    Hang in there. There’s a reason for this seeming digression.
    If then it were given the ability to perceive three dimensions it would be like us,- able to see up and down, front to back and left to right. It would be in the three dimensional world as we are.
    Yet, we also are limited by our perceptive abilities. We can only perceive the three dimensional world in which we live. What we cannot perceive in the fourth dimension, we experience OVER TIME. We don’t know what anything spiritual really looks like!
    Time is not the fourth dimension. It is a condition of our limited ability to see things as they REALLY ARE beyond the third dimension.
    What’s the point? Back to the Bible.
    In the twinkling of an eye we will be transformed. From mortal flesh, stuck in time, to immortal spirit having Everlasting Life. We will be outside the constraints of three dimensional existence.
    Those who stand before Yahovah when He returns in Glory will see the Essence of His Being,- His Shekinah Glory, and His Word, and His Holy Spirit, all together as one Living Being. We will see even as we are seen. We will see that Yahowah is Yashua is Ruach haKodesh is Yahovah. One Sovereign Diety!
    So, what about the name? In whose name should we pray? Equally as important, if not more so, what does it mean to pray ‘in the name of’ Yahovah or Yashua?
    To pray in the name of Jesus seems farcical to me. Partly because there never was a man named Jesus Christ. And it seems to me from my experience with evangelical Christians, that there is a great deal of self-aggrandizement disguised as religious fervor. But, beyond that, what right does anyone have to even speak to our Creator let alone ask Him for anything?
    FIRST, it seems to me, that we must exercise our “likeness” of Him. That is, we must give OUR word to bind our will to HIS Word. His Word is the word we must keep. That is, we must keep our word to keep His word. It is HIS WILL that must be done! Not ours!
    We must demonstrate to Him that we are exercising our Creator-given free will to obey Him. We do this by following Torah. That way He knows we intend to do as He would have us do and not attempt to interfere with His Creation. If we don’t do that, how could we possibly expect eternal life?
    If we are unwilling to obey Him why would He bring us into His Eternal Realm where we might attempt to interfere with His Creation? And why would He answer any of our prayers regarding our daily affairs?
    SECOND, we must recognize that if He had not allowed Himself to be belittled and killed,- if He had not died and then raised Himself from the dead, there world be no mechanism by which we might escape the destruction Satan has intended for us.
    This very act opens the possibility for Salvation. It offers us the privelage of speaking to the Father as innocent children; to be taught by Him and to grow as He would have us grow. If we are disobedient He will ignore us because He only looks upon perfection. If we continue in disobedience, He chastises us. If we insist on our own way, He eliminates us from Salvation.
    So, when He looks at us He must see His Son because His Son is Perfect. And the only way we have to get Him to see His Son in us is to obey, as the human Yashua did. Also, because we know we are sinners and do not deserve anything from Him, our guilt,- our shame stands between us and Him, preventing us from approaching. The only way past that shame is by trusting in Yashua’s sacrifice, and putting on the mind that is in Yashua haMeshiach.
    We must believe in His Sacrifice. We must believe in His Resurrection.
    And we must believe in the Forgiveness He makes possible. And we must repent of this world, seeking that Forgiveness constantly.
    Simply recognizing these things is not enough. We must believe them. So, what is it to believe? This too comes to me from outside the Bible, but it fits, as far as I can see.
    Rearrange the letters of the word, belief and you get belife, or be life. Better yet, be in life. To have a belief is to ‘be in life’ that something is true. It is not merely admitting mental consent that something is true, though it requires that. It goes well beyond that. It means feet on the ground, being and doing all the things that the belief professes.
    So, if I believe that Yashua is Yahovah, that He died and was resurrected to create a way,- the Door through which I may enter into eternal life, then I should be,- (behave completely) as if it is true. I should do all that having that belief requires. I should act on faith boldly, obey joyfully, and seek the Will of My Creator/Redeemer in all things at all times. If I am doing this, I am being true to the belief that I profess, and which we are told we must believe.
    And what is it to be ‘in the name of’ anyone?
    If I do these things, His Reputation, His Intention, His Will are evident in all aspects of my life. Furthermore, I must be willing to obey unto the point of death, which is exactly what Yashua did. So, I must be willing to lay down my life for His Word. All of these things constitute being ‘in the Name”, which honours Yahovah’s Covenant with us. It is this that affords me the privelage of asking the Father for anything that is in keeping with His Will.
    Adding ‘in Yashua’s name’ or ‘in Yahovah ‘s name’ seems far less critical when viewed this way. Dare I say, what difference does it make? After all, didn’t Yahovah say that should we forget His name He would search our heart to see our true intention? Furthermore, are they not just different appellations of the One Devine Bring? Yahovah, Yashua… Same guy!
    I don’t mean to ruffle anyone’s feathers but, saying “in the name of Jesus” or any name, is more like magic than faith.
    In the world we rarely see the use of the phrase, ‘in the name of’. But, if someone banged on your door and said, “Open up in the name of the law”, you would know exactly who is standing outside. The police! Their job is to keep the peace by upholding the law and sometimes, risking their own lives to do so. You would also expect the police themselves to be law abiding; obeying all that the law requires.
    Is not being in the name of the Creator/Redeemer the same? To me, it is much more than an appellation. It is a way of life!
    The book of Job, I think offers an understanding of the conditions under which humanity is currently living,- tormented by the accuser. It was enlightening to discover that El Shaddai gives Satan permission to test Job. It is also interesting, perhaps even prophetic, that Job dies in the end, but never loses sight of his Redeemer. Prophetic in the sense that humanity will see the Redeemer.
    Job 19:25
    25 For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth.
    Yahovah will have His way. There is no other possibility. Learning and repenting,- obeying the Commandments,- Trusting Yashua’s Sacrifice,: taking action to share the Truth of the Good News, even if doing so puts my life at risk,- these are all required in order to believe and be in the Name. This is keeping my eyes on my Redeemer. My Redeemer Lives and He will stand again on the Earth. And in Him I can have Life! This is my faith. Praise be to Elohim!
    As for keeping the Sabbath Day holy. This has been a problem for me since I first saw that it was required. At first, all I could do was ‘REMEMBER’ that it was the SABBATH DAY. That was eight years ago. I had no previous tradition to undo. But it took time for me to learn what keeping it Holy means. And it took time for me to become willing to do what it requires.
    I observed Sabbath keepers who went shopping on the Day. It was obvious to me that this is wrong. It is perfectly clear from Scripture alone, without explanation, that any form of business is wrong. The use of money is wrong. Entertaining myself with anything other than Spiritual matters is wrong. Employing others is wrong.
    The way I see it, we are to stop all activity that depends on the world or contributes to it. We are to recognize that everything comes from Yahovah,- everything belongs to Him and will return to Him.
    He provides all of our needs. Any activity to improve our situation in life is wrong. No work means just that,- not for me nor for anyone on my behalf.
    For a time I would not draw water from the well on the Sabbath. I was afraid to heat up a meal or make myself a sandwich because it might be breaking the Sabbath. Then I took notice of Exodus 12:16 “And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, SAVE THAT WHICH EVERY MAN MUST EAT.”
    Now I prepare ahead as much as I can. But, I am no longer afraid to do the things I must do to eat.
    The Sabbath Day has become the most important, valuable and uplifting aspect of my life. Learning of the Sabbatical and Jubilee years from you has added value beyond measure. The Sabbath is a taste of the Home Yahovah has prepared for us and I delight in it!

      Hi Ross
      So many of my questions gave been answered and discussed in your comments.
      Congrats on the email from your daughter.
      My mom had a situation and as in yours it would appear The Father had to let attempts by men fail to resolve the issue otherwise, without realizing it, we would attribute the progress to the assistance of a person. If He gets us into a place where we know without a doubt it could only be Him all credit goes to the rightful place.

    Hi Mr. Dumond: I know what HWA taught and you are re-iterating what He said because of how the NEW Covenant Scriptures are translated. As an overall view, it is translated by people who believed in the Trinity. The Trinity being three males. The “Holy Spirit” is supposed to be the Third Person and is referred to as an “HE”. But HWA saw the Holy Spirit is not a personage but ????’s “POWER” and therefore should be referred to as an “it”. So, with this as a backdrop we have been taught there is TWO.
    When the split came after HWA death, many of us started to study like never before and myself found the Shabbat and the Feasts as still in effect. When studying the famous “I am” from the Hebrew and Aramaic Square Script, I saw something that didn’t quite go along with HWA perspective. I don’t think there were very many people that could read “Hebrew” so most everyone took the teachers word for it. What is translated as “I am that I am” is the meaning of the NAME of ???? found in the next verse. In another translation the “eyeh asher eyeh” is translated as “EXIST WHICH EXIST” which is basically the same thing as “I am that I am”.
    When reading the Prophet Yasha-YaH.Isa-IaH we see this declaration….
    Isaiah 45:5-6
    5 I am ????, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
    6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am ????, and there is none else.
    But we have the Anointed One ????? say he is “ego eimi” in Greek …. which translated from the Greek means “I am”.
    If we compare the Hebrew “eyeh asher eyeh” (EXIST WHICH EXIST) with the Greek”ego eimi” (I am), it doesn’t mean the same thing. Why were the “Jews” ready to stone ????? for what He said? They were arguing about how important Abraham was, and accused ????? of making out as if He was important. ????? merely said He was more important than Abraham. We have been trusting the New Testament Scriptures were translated accurately but we can now know there wasn’t any Trinity because Yasha-YaH/Isa-IaH recorded what ???? said, “There is none else beside me” .
    The Shema of Israel reads…..
    Deuteronomy 6:4
    4 Hear, O Israel: ???? our God is one ????:
    This very same verse was quoted by the Anointed One ????? …..
    Mark 12:29
    29 And ????? answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; ???? our God is one ????:
    When ????? was Baptized, a voice said……
    Matthew 3:17
    17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
    Who’s voice said that?
    The Lord

    • Roger Gloux

      I didn’t write “the Lord” you did.
      It was YaHWeH. When you eliminate the “names” you have to come up with something like “the Lord”, which is not HIS NAME. Considering this program doesn’t recognize the Aramaic letters, how can the Mashiach be YaHWeH? Notice, the voice said it was HIS Son. They both can’t be the same.
      I know a site where nothing is deleted, would like to have a two way conversation with you, with no deletion involved.

      The Voice of the Father
      ‘This is My Son in whom I am well pleased.’
      Who says that if Yashua is the Father?
      In other words, how can He be the Father and the Son at the same time?
      Easy! He’s GOD! He can be in 2, or 1 million places at the same time. Besides, for Him there is no time.
      Everything that exists is in His Him. Everything is Him. Where did He get all the Stuff to make the universe with? He got it from Himself. Where else is there? And He sustains all of it. That necessarily means that He is conscious of everything, all at once. No mere human can do that. We have difficulty holding 2 things in our mind at the same time.
      Consciousness itself is His and He is the Ultimate Consciousness. He created us to share consciousness with Him. Why can’t He sustain part of His consciousness in human form and call that human His Son?
      The word ‘individual’ is defined as a single, seperate person. Why must we assume that Yehovah is limited to the mere individuality we are defined by? Yashua stated very clearly that He and the Father are One. Perhaps we experience ourselves as seperate individuals because of sin and perhaps Salvation means we will come out of that limitation.
      We can’t expect Yehovah to be what we are with our puny ability to perceive. He’s in the 10th dimension. We can’t comprehend beyond the 3 dimensions we live in. Length, width and height. That’s it.
      But while in the flesh, He experienced those limitations. Imagine! He locked His Awareness into a boxed reality to save us! So, we could get out of the three dimensional state that leads to death, and Live!
      The human born Yashua followed the instructions given by His Spirit Self who impregnated Miriam by His Holy Spirit. Then He walked the earth, taught, healed, suffered and died in His flesh Self. Meanwhile, His Spirit Self continued to sustain the universe though His Holy Spirit and then raised Him from the dead. Difficult for us to fully comprehend, but most definitely possible for the One and Only Creator to do.
      I Am that I Am. I Be what I Be. I Am Becoming what I Am Becoming.
      Why not, I Am that I Am Yashua?
      Whose voice was it?
      Yashua’s Father with whom He is One! His Spirit Self acknowledging that His Human Self was doing what He intended.
      Incomprehensible to us. But, thanks to Yashua, one day we may also be One with the Father and the Son. We can only guess what that will be like.
      What is it to baptize in the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit? In the reputation and character of the Creator, Yehovah, assured by His human Sacrifice on our behalf as Yeshua, who was raised from the dead by the Power of His Holy Spirit.
      To me those are three aspects of a Magnificent, incomprehensible, omnipotent, omniscient Being Who has gone to great lengths to share His LIFE with us. Not three people or even two people.
      As a human He would have experienced Himself as separated from His Spiritual Nature. If He had been here as Spirit he would not have had to resist temptation. It would have been meaningless. He became as us and that manifestation of Yehovah is Yashua. He did what He had to do as a human. Then He was glorified.
      Once we are transformed we may also become part of the Magnificent wholeness that is Elohim, expanding His consciousness through our own. Willing participants in His unending Creative process.

        Isa_9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
        The Son is the Father. The Father is the Son. Interesting that He shall be called Counsellor. Isn’t that the Holy Spirit?
        Joh_1:18 No one has seen God at any time; the Only-begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
        Interesting that Yeshua did not say that He saw the Father but, that He DECLARED Him.
        The eye cannot see itself, but the mouth can declare what the eye sees. Are the eye and the mouth different people?

  13. David R Smith

    Jn.8:58 “Before Abraham was, I am.”
    Is Yahshua claiming here, as some would have us believe, that he is the “I AM?” Is Yahshua the great “I AM” of Ex.3:14? Did he, in the Hebrew tongue, just claim to be Yahweh? Is that why they immediately tried to stone him? If so, let’s read it as such. “Before Abraham was, Yahweh.” Or could we understand it better sounding like this, “Before Abraham, (pause) was Yahweh.” This makes more sense, for Yahweh created Abraham so He had to come before him. It can’t be that simple, otherwise why would it be classified as a hard saying? Maybe he said, “Before Abraham was, I am Yahweh,” and John forgot to put in the name Yahweh. I don’t think so. Now, let’s not just believe what others have told us this verse means but dig down and find out for ourselves.
    Who spoke to Moses from the bush? Yahshua never claimed to be the one talking to Moses but gave all the credit to Yahweh.
    Mr 12:26 And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?
    The Greek phrase “I am” is “ego eimi.” In the Greek New Testament there are many instances of Yahshua using “ego eimi”, theologians have labeled these, “The I Am’s of Jesus.” Many believed that these occurrences identify Yahshua’s as the “I AM” of Ex.3:14. After all in out English Bibles our eyes can see the exact same English word “I am” in both Exodus and John and so “case closed.” Are we that simple that we think God spoke English and we ignore the difference between Hebrew and Greek. Look at a few of the “I ams”.
    Mt 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Messiah; and shall deceive many.
    Mr 14:61 But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed? 62 And Yahshua said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
    Lu 22:70 Then said they all, (chief priests and scribes) Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.
    Jn 7:28 Then cried Yahshua in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not. 29 But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.
    Jn 8:28 Then said Yahshua unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. 29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
    Jn 9:8 The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged? 9 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he (the blind beggar) said, I am he.
    Jn 13:13 Ye call me Teacher and Master: and ye say well; for so I am.
    Jn 13:19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.
    Jn 18:5 They answered him, Yahshua of Nazareth. Yahshua saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also stood with them. 6 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.
    Jn 18:8 Yahshua answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:
    Does anyone believe that in each of the above verses Yahshua intended to convey the meaning that He is Yahweh the Father? Could we then expect to believe that the blind beggar, healed by Yahshua in Jn. 9:8, also thought he was Yahweh? I know this sounds ridiculous but when we take words out of context or give words strange meanings, this is what can result. Many of today’s Christians believe that when Yahshua used the words “ego eimi” he was declaring to be Yahweh, yet when anyone else used “ego eimi” they were just applying them as they were usually understood.
    Mt. 16: 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Messiah, the Son of the living God. 17 And Yahshua answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
    Here we see Yahshua asking his disciples who they thought he was. When Peter answered that he was not Yahweh but the Son of Yahweh, Yahshua not only commended him but also declared that the answer came to Peter from Yahweh Himself.
    If Yahshua claimed to be Yahweh why didn’t anyone accuse Him of it? The closest they could come to this was that he claimed to be the Son of Yahweh. Yahshua never denied that he was Yahweh’s Son.
    Did they seek to stone Yahshua in Jn 8:58 because he said he was the “I am,” the Yahweh of the OT? Indeed they did not because in verse 24 he said “I am” and instead of trying to stone him they were dumbfounded and asked, “Who art thou?” If he had just said he was Yahweh why would they ask him who he was? His answer was, “Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.” Yahshua never once claimed to be God, never mind Yahweh, but always insisted he was “the Son of God!” Several times they tried to stone him because of this claim
    Jn 5:18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.
    Jn 10:33 For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
    What did they mean by “Makest thyself God?” Yahshua himself explains in verse 36, “Because I said, I am the Son of God?”
    Jn 19:7 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God. (By the way there is no such law)
    Never is there a charge against him of claiming to be Yahweh, the I am, right up till the last hour of his life he was only accused of being the Son of God.
    Mt 27:40 If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross. 43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.
    Satan knew. Indeed Satan also was aware that he was the Son and not the Father.
    Mt 4:6 And (Satan) saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He (Yahweh) shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
    Demons knew. Even the demons declared that Yahshua was Yahweh’s Son.
    Lu 4:41 And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Messiah the Son of God.
    Mr 3:11 And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.
    Why then did they try to stone him? Keep in mind he spoke “I am” just as convincingly in verses 24 and 28 without an attempt on his life. If you read the complete exchange between Yahshua and the Jews on this day you’ll find he was almost egging them on, at best we see he wasn’t holding anything back. He accused, condemned, judged, blamed, and charged them of judging after the flesh, trying to kill him, lying, dishonoring him, of being in bondage, being servants of sin, spiritually deaf, not of God but the devil, and bluntly said three times you “shall die in your sins.”
    This close encounter with the Son of God was not to their liking. Yahshua was not in the mood to appease the Jews on this occasion and was not ready to give an inch or spare their feelings. The Jews could not understand his statements nor make any progress as they endeavored to thwart his words. Finally they were driven into a rage when the subject touched on their cherished father Abraham, when he said, “Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.” By now they were only hearing what they wanted to hear (something not uncommon today) and asked, “Hast thou seen Abraham.” Take notice of what Yahshua said, Abraham saw MY DAY, he didn’t see me and I didn’t see him, I said he saw MY DAY. How did Abraham see the Messiah’s day?
    Heb 11:13 These (OT saints) all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off.
    Not just Abraham, but many OT believers had faith Yahweh would one day send a saviour to secure their redemption (See also Gen 22:18, Lu 10:24, Jn 12:41, Ro 4:21, Ga 3:8 and 1Pe 1:10-11).
    By this time the Jews were completely lost as to what Yahshua was talking about and when he spoke the words “Before Abraham was, I am” they totally lost it, not that they could explain why, only that it sounded like what they had already accused him of in verse 53, that he was greater than their father Abraham. He antagonized them far less in Lu 4:29 and Jn 10:31, but just the same they tried to kill him then as well.
    Now take a look at what happened in the Garden of Gethsemane. When Judas and a detachment of officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, “with lanterns and torches and weapons” (Jn 18:3), made it known they were seeking Yahshua of Nazareth, Yahshua said to them, “I am he” and immediately “they went backward, and fell to the ground.” What caused this? It doesn’t explain, but that doesn’t stop people from stating unequivocally, “Oh, that’s because he just claimed to be the great I am.” Instead of blindly accepting such silliness let’s see what really happened.
    Yahshua again asked, “Whom seek ye?” And then he said, “I have told you that (ego eimi) I am [he].” In other words, get on with it. So they bound him and took him to Caiaphas, the high priest and then later to Pilate. The bogus trial is recorded in Mt 26:57-66 where the first and only evidence was presented through “false witness” (59). “Though many false witnesses came” forward (see v 60) no two agreed, which was required (De 17:6) by the law. Where were all the genuine witnesses that heard him claim to be the great I am? Where were the ones in Jn 8:58, why didn’t they step forward since they heard him say, “Before Abraham was I am (the great I am)?” What about the ones that just arrested him, they were present, according to Mt 26:57 and Jn 18:26, why didn’t they describe how when he claimed to be the great I am they fell backwards? This is what the high priest was looking for, evidence Yahshua claimed to be Yahweh, the great I am. If this is what most of Christianity says it is why wasn’t it forthcoming. At last two consistent false witnesses testified they heard Yahshua say, “I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days” (61). This didn’t help the high priest any and so out of frustration he cries, “I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Messiah, the Son of God” (63). He doesn’t even attempt to nail him with the charge of claiming to be Yahweh, the great I am, but only the Son of the great I am. Again I ask, why did he have to do this, where were all the people who heard him claim to be the great I am? Why did he have to resort to false testimony about destroying the temple and eventually as a last option plead with Yahshua to confess? The answer is because Yahshua never ever claimed to be Yahweh, never claimed to be God or never claimed to be the great I am, but continually and consistently only ever professed to be the Son of and a servant of the Great I am.
    So what does Yahshua mean by “Before Abraham was I am?” My opinion is that considering the context where the Jews harshly asked him, “Art thou greater than our father Abraham,” and “Whom makest thou thyself,” Yahshua’s answer could very well be a response to these questions. In Jn 1:15 & 27 John the Baptist points out that the Messiah is greater then him and in Mt 12:42 Yahshua says, “A greater than Solomon is here,” and so it would not be out of the question for him to state that he was before Abraham in all things as well. Also keep in mind that Abraham’s ancestry went back only as far as Adam whereas Yahshua’s went back to forever, and he could have been subtlety alluding to that.

      In all of what you have said you now must not agree that there is only one God.
      “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.
      You now are stating that there are two.
      We do not agree.

    • Roger Gloux

      David Smith, you were on a role and messed it up at the end. I agree with everything you said, except in the last chapter of your post. We all suppose the translators were accurate in what we read, that is until you really start studying. YaHUsha never said He pre-existed, but instead told those “Jews” He was more important then Abraham. The same old English expression is used by John the Baptist when he said….
      John 1:27 (KJV)
      27 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe’s latchet I am not worthy to unloose.
      When it states he was “before him” the intent is “More important then me”. Everyone thought John the Baptist was a very important person, but John the Baptist was saying the guy that is coming after me, is more important than I am.
      The Mashiach YaHUsha merely said to these Jews He was more important then Abraham, and Abraham knew He would be coming long after he died. The “seed” would come from Abraham’s descendants. Paul points out what was said to Abraham….
      Galatians 3:16 (KJV)
      16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
      The Mashiach was to come in Abraham’s bloodline and Miriam was in that bloodline. She was a virgin and YaHWeH produced the seed by HIS word that came from HIS Mouth.
      King David reveals how YaHWeH created…..
      Psalm 33:6
      6 By the word of YHWH were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
      This same “word” that proceeded from YaHWeH’s mouth made “flesh”….
      John 1:14
      14 And the word made flesh
      A “seed” was made that impregnated Miriam making Miriam the Mother and YaHWeH the Father because HE produced the “seed”. A “begetal” took place and is the only way it could have happened……
      John 3:16 (KJV)
      16 For God (YHWH) so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
      If HE did not produce the “sperm” (flesh), HE isn’t the FATHER of this child.

      The name of the Prophet Mohammad is found in the Koran in four places, but the name of Jesus is found in 25 places.
      The only woman mentioned in the Koran is Mariam.
      In the Koran Jesus is referred to as the “Word of God” and the “Spirit of God.”
      The Koran also says;
      Jesus cured a man born blind and a man with leprosy.
      that Jesus gave life to dead people
      Jesus went to heaven
      he is still alive and he will come again.
      Mohammad never cured any sick people and never raised the dead. He himself died. And according to Islam he is not alive and he will not come back.
      How did God create the universe? God created the universe through the word and the Koran say that word was Jesus.
      John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God…’
      The Koran says Jesus is the Word of God, now the Holy Bible also says Jesus is the Word of God.
      Does Mohammad say you can be born of God?
      John 1:12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
      Can you call Allah Father? Can you call Mohammad Father?
      We can call Yehovah Father.

    Of course there is only one God. You said I believe in 2 Gods but you never pointed out in my comments where you got that idea. Please could you do that? Even Yahshua clearly states there is but one God when he called to the Father and said:
    Joh 17:3 This is eternal life, that they may know You, THE ONLY TRUE GOD, and Yahshua Messiah whom You have sent.
    One other thing Joe, should we now NOT pray in Yeshua’s name but invoke a reference to Yehovah as we end our prayers?

  16. Lucinda Robinson

    It is still hard for me to conceive that Yehoshua is Yehovah. At his baptism, they were all present-the voice of the Father from heaven, the son in the flesh, and the spirit in the form of a dove. It seems to me they are like identical garments all cut from the same bolt of cloth. All the same and in agreement and unity, but separate. But it appears the son is a manifestation of the direct creation of Yehovah through Mary as the culmination and fulfillment of every spoken prophecy about the first coming of the messiah.It seems to me, they are all of the same family just like your son is a Dumond. I am still in wonder why anyone has to try to prove that the son IS the Father when He calls him His son. What am I missing?

    • Annette Hillary

      Lucinda, I ubderstand you. From all my bible reading I do not get that Yahuah (Yahovah) and Yahusha, his son – are one individual as in the same individual. I agree with Sabbath and feast, this makes logical sense. I’m new in keeping Sabbath (my eigth one). I’m with you on this one. What am I missing? I will need to pray for wisdom and discernment on this and dig into scripture more and the language. Plus I’m going to read the above article several times and research like the Boreans.

  17. Glenn Caron

    WOW! very many responses about YEshua as being the ONLY one true GOD. and confusion on this has been around for millenia .
    WHo do YOU pray to ? the Father or to the SON . You pray to the Father in the name and authority of the Son. Yeshua always pointed to the FAther and even instructed how to PRAY to the Father.
    Pro_30:4 Who has gone up to heaven and come down? Who has cupped the wind in the palms of his hands? Who has wrapped up the waters in his cloak? Who established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and what is his son’s name? Surely you know!
    Joh_1:18 No one has seen God at any time; the Only-begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
    1Jn_4:12 No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwells in us, and His love is perfected in us.
    ANd finally this one….
    Joh_5:37 And He sending Me, the Father Himself, has borne witness of Me. Neither have you heard His voice at any time nor seen His shape.
    As I had earlier posted MANY had seen the OT God on Sinai and spoke to moses and Abraham a and others like Samuel. SO I see contradiction or serious corruption or misinterpretation of the languages.
    SO as Lucinda posted … There is confusion in scripture on this matter. YES Yeshua is the creator and the OT GOD . But there is FATHER he is PRAYING to … he is not praying to HIMSELF. These lower scriptures are also showing 2 beings very specifically.
    Rev 1:1 A Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave to Him to declare to His servants things which must shortly come to pass. And He signified it by sending His angel to His servant John,
    Rev 1:2 who bore record of the Word of God and of the testimony of Jesus Christ and of all the things that he saw.
    1Co 15:27 For He put all things under His feet. But when He says that all things have been put under His feet, it is plain that it excepts Him who has put all things under Him.
    1Co 15:28 But when all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subject to Him who has subjected all things to Him, so that God may be all things in all.
    Rev 22:1 And he showed me a pure river of Water of Life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
    Something is OFF! and there is no answer BUT to come to the OBVIOUS Logical conclusion , there are 2 beings as one in unity just like husband and wife . We will also be married to YEshua and become ONE with Him and the FAther, so that concept is VALID. …Rev_21:7 He who overcomes will inherit all things, and I will be his God, and he will be My son.
    The surrendering of the CLEAN PERFECT world AFTER the thousand years will then culminate in Yeshua handing the PERFECT clean earth back to the FATHER ,the ALMIGHTY planner as depicted in the 8th day FEAST, the Last Great day.. I believe that YOU have said this in several past newsletters , Joseph.
    Thank You for all your input and hard work doing the WILL and PURPOSE of The Almighty , you ARE doing what HIS will was in creating YOU. We should all seek out that individual purpose .

    Here is another passage from the Tanach that shows YHVH (Yehovah) as the creator from Gen 1:1.
    Jer 32:17  Ah, Master ????! See, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is no matter too hard for You, (we see YHVH and the Aleph Tav both here credited as being the creator) 
    Jer 32:18  who show loving-commitment to thousands, and repay the crookedness of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them – the Great, the Mighty ?l, ???? of hosts is His Name,  (here we see Him as Judge, Yehovah Tzevuot, the Mighty El)
    Jer 32:19  great in counsel and mighty in work, for Your eyes are open to all the ways of the sons of men, to give everyone according to his ways and according to the fruit of his deeds.  (here we see him seemingly called the Ruach HaChodesh)
    Once again matches to this verse:
    Isa 9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 
    And as you know, Gen 1:1 says Elohim and the Aleph Tav are the creator.
    Gen 1:1  In the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth. 
    There is another teaching on the right arm of strength, the outstretched arm, etc. They all point to Messiah, who John in the book of John and Revelations says is the Aleph Tav and YHVH and El Shaddai.
    So, how many Gods do we have? If Yeshua isn’t capable of being Elohim in Gen 1:1 because He wasn’t born yet even though we have Yeshua and John both claiming to be the Aleph Tav and the Aleph Tav is clearly seen in Gen 1:1 and you’re saying we have two Gods and they are one in unity (the Father and the Son). Then…..who appeared to Abraham when he negotiated for 10 people over Sodom? Yeshua sure acted like He was speaking to the ALeph Tav in the flesh. Some say the preincarnate Yeshua. Abraham did not know Yeshua. He only knew His Elohim by the name YHVH. Futhermore you cannot say preincarnate Yeshua AND hold to your ideas that Yeshua can’t be Yehovah. Can’t have it both ways.
    Gen 18:22  So the men turned away from there and went toward Se?om, but ???? still stood before A?raham. 
    Gen 18:23  And A?raham drew near and said, “Would You also destroy the righteous with the wrong? 
    Who did Abraham speak with here? The passage says Elohim. Well, Elohim is spirit and can’t talk with him, but the Aleph Tav can.
    Gen 17:3  And A?ram fell on his face, and Elohim spoke with him, saying, 
    Gen 17:4  “As for Me, look, My covenant is with you, and you shall become a father of many nations. 
    But oops, the Aleph Tav is Yeshua and since Yeshua isn’t born yet, are you saying the Tanach is wrong and it was an angel or the Ruach speaking to him?
    What about the flaming fire and lightening and thunder on Sinai. It is the Aleph Tav that interacts with creation. Who spoke to them and they were frightened and told “Him” to only speak with Moses?
    Who did Joshua see? To me, it was not an angel; he saw Yehovah Tzevuot. WHICH is the Aleph Tav.
    Jos 5:13  And it came to be, when Yehoshua was by Yeri?o, that he lifted his eyes and looked and saw a Man standing opposite him with His sword drawn in His hand. And Yehoshua went to Him and said to Him, “Are You for us or for our adversaries?” 
    Jos 5:14  And He said, “No, for I have now come as Captain of the host of ????.” And Yehoshua fell on his face to the earth and did obeisance, and said to Him, “What is my Master saying to His servant?” 
    Jos 5:15  And the Captain of the host of ???? said to Yehoshua, “Take your sandal off your foot, for the place where you stand is set-apart.” And Yehoshua did so.
    NOW, I am a body, but my body can do nothing without my brain capable of speaking and walking. I have a spirit that wants to do evil, but a Ruach spirit in me that keeps me on the path. Am I FOUR PEOPLE? How can that be? What happens if I were to fall in a fire and burn to ashes. All that exists is a spirit that Yehovah (Yeshua as Yehovah Tzevuot) raises up from the dead. WOW ….. is he capable of reconnecting my invisable spirit with a spiritual body? How can that be? One that can walk and talk and live in the future kingdom? Sorry, but I think we are on dangerous ground trying to have two Gods. Who rules? When everything is returned to Elohim…who rules? Yehovah or Messiah? There are always two. It says Messiah is going to return everything to The Father so I guess Yehovah and Messiah just evaporate since they have no further purpose. WOW…all of Scripture is about Messiah.
    Yehovah created this world from nothing. He was spirit. He surely wouldn’t create a world He couldn’t interact with. So we see the Aleph Tav as the part of him that interacts into this world. Walking with Adam and Eve. Talking with Noah and Moses. Performing judgement, both positive and negative judgments. Hovering over MARY and she becomes pregnant!!! NOT from sperm! NO MAN involved.
    To me, I see Yehovah imparting His Spirit into Mary and it becoming flesh just like He appeared to Abraham prior to Sodom’s destruction. He can make himself FLESH for a temporary purpose or be BORN FLESH, when He chose to…Yeshua…Mesiah…for the SOLE purpose of being a LAMB that HAD TO DIE for the House of Israel to become His bride again.
    Read ALL of those newsletters again posted under Yehovah is ONE Elohim and think it through yourself and not with the other Messianic and Christian mindsets. I listened to two Gods but one in unity all my life and it made no sense. I have spent literally YEARS crying out for understanding. You do not notice confusion amongst any one in Scripture over this matter. Not Tanach. Not Renewed Covenant. So why are we so confused? Could it be the RC is written by man and not Elohim. The original is hidden away in the Vatican. They promoted in Scripture and today 3 God trinity. This should be taken into account. Look up all the references to “in the name” and sort them out. Look up the Greek word translated “MY” to see if it should be “THE”. Many times they translated the 2nd / 3rd person as My. That is just plain wrong. Even the Strong’s word tells you it is “The” yet they printed “MY”. THE NAME!!!!! has always been Yehovah. NOT MY name. That resolves a LOT.

    It certainly looks like the New Testament is saying there are TWO beings. The most controversial verses are [John 1:1-4] in the KJV. Most translations after this KJV, merely repeat what is said. Here is the KJV…..
    1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
    1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
    1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
    1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
    If you look at what Tyndale wrote for these same verses, you will see this…..
    1:1 In the beginnynge was the worde and the worde was with God: and the worde was God.
    1:2 The same was in the beginnynge with God.
    1:3 All thinges were made by it and with out it was made nothinge that was made.
    1:4 In it was lyfe and the lyfe was ye lyght of men
    If you noticed Tyndale didn’t think this word “Word” was a person but rather an “it”, which is what we would think of something coming from a voice. Obviously it looks like King James did some editing here. The reason is other translators before King James referred to this word “word” as an “it also.
    The majority say there are TWO beings as GOD. Could anyone explain this…..
    Isaiah 45:5-6
    5 I am ???? (YHWH), and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
    6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am ???? (YHWH), and there is none else.
    This would be a terrible insult if there was another in the “wings” saying, “Heh???? what about me?”
    Of course the NAME of the Creator is deleted from the Septuagint (LXX) and almost every translation after that did the same, but interestingly the NAME ???? (YHWH) is in both the Aramaic and Paleo Hebrew. So just in case this is a misprint, we should look at other Scripture that verifies this….
    Deuteronomy 4:35
    35 Unto you it was shown, that you might know that ???? (YHWH) he is God; there is none else beside him.
    Deuteronomy 4:39 King James Version (KJV)
    39 Know therefore this day, and consider it in your thoughts, that ???? (YHWH) he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.
    1 Kings 8:60
    60 That all the people of the earth may know that ???? (YHWH) is God, and that there is none else.
    There are more places like this but this should be enough to say there is only ONE. Not one unity comprising TWO, but over and over again, ???? (YHWH) says HE is all by HIMSELF, there is none else.
    Let’s look at what King David wrote…..
    Psalm 33:6
    6 By the word of ???? (YHWH) were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
    Notice this “the word”? If you translate backwards it would read “ha dabar” = the word. So go back to [John 1] and see what this would look like….
    Tyndale Bible 1534
    1:1 In the beginnynge was ha dabar and ha dabar was with God: and ha dabar was God.
    1:2 The same was in the beginnynge with God.
    1:3 All thinges were made by it and with out it was made nothinge that was made.
    1:4 In it was lyfe and the lyfe was ye lyght of men
    Can anyone come to the conclusion that “ha dabar” is a personage????? Tyndale didn’t and many other translations didn’t see this as a “personage” like…
    Matthew Bible 1537…. “it”.
    The Great Bible 1539… “it”.
    Geneva Bible 1560…. “it”.
    Bishop Bible 1568…. “it”.
    You folks need to learn what “el” and “elohim” mean. Many of the translators, like Tyndale” had to seek refuge in Germany because the Catholic Church was trying to prevent people from using English instead of the Latin that no-one understood. They chose the German word “god” that doesn’t come close to what “el” means in Hebrew or Aramaic.
    Of course, the supposition is a “god” is devine. One Judge is an “elohim” and the translator didn’t say “god” but instead a “judge”.
    Abraham was referred to as an “elohim”, this does not mean devine, nor would anyone think he was “devine”. But the human being called ????? by His Apostles never considered Himself as Devine but He was referred to as an “el”. This word is used for anyone in a position of Power and Authority. So when Thomas (Twin) said…..
    John 20:28
    28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Master and my Powerful Authority..

    Hey Joe,
    You wrote: “We also agree with you and have published similar commentaries. Awesome.”
    Are you saying you agree with what Roger Cloux wrote on November 18, 18 at 8:26 pm? If so that’s a surprise to me. Where can a person read these “similar commentaries.” Roger is explaining Unitarisium and I never thought you were a Unitarian. Could you direct us to your commentaries on this subject?

    John 20 v 17
    Do not cling to Me, for I have not gone to My Father, but go to my brethren and say to them. I am ascending to My Father, and your Farther, and to My God, and to your God,
    v 21
    Peace to you, as the Farther has sent Me, I also send you.
    why did Yahushua refer to His father in these scriptures and all the others that are mentioned above by David Smith. ?
