"The Golden Rule of Interpretation:"
"'Take every word at its primary, ordinary, usual, literal meaning unless the facts of the context indicate otherwise.' This rule is recognized by all logicians, grammarians, and rhetoricians as the true criterion by which one must be governed. When one is guided by this princple he cannot go far afield. On the other hand, if he ignores it, he is free to roam at liberty and can never know… Continue

This question has be touted and asked throughout the history of Mankind! Don't get hung up in the word "Torah", it simply means learning, teaching, instructions and all that that entails. All and any of the Writings is Torah.
So with that in mind when was Torah first pasted down to us? I give you a hint before we were made from the dust of the earth. YHVH (Yahweh) began with Yeshua, Then came everything else! The first was establishing the days; even and morning day… Continue

There is a place of rest eternal
where by faith we enter in
where the peace of G_d through Christ
calms rough waters and strong winds.
In the midst of times of trouble
we need not fear nor faint when Christ
is our place of strength and comfort
when storm clouds rage and waters rise.
Abiding in our Saviour
we rise above life's weary waves
confident in Him to keep us
we overcome each day by faith.

In a world of people blinded
by lack of vision and lack of faith
the Lord will pour out His Spirit
and open wide Heaven's gate.
Like the whispering of the wind
the Spirit will speak to every heart
to receive the light of truth
shining rays of hope into the dark.
Like a flame burning brightly
like a beacon in the night
the Spirit will surround us with G_d's love
and guide us by His light.
The Lord is calling forth a people
as the… Continue

As the sun shines through the clouds, I see your grace.
How Wonderful is your name oh most High.
Your breath has created us all, and with your hands

So that by seeking You, You would guide us back

A purpose for our lives, a challenge we must face.
But a love for the One who created us all.
In You we put our trust, dont ever let us be ashamed,

Ever since I lost my last dog, My heart was sad. It hurt to lose something that was close to me, forming a part of me. Then it be taken from me when I least expected. I thought I would never have another friend, like I call it. Someone that you can talk to and wont judge you, someone that is always so humble. Teaching you things without using words. Someone that when you dont feel so good comes and cuddles next to you and licks you comforting you. Love is silent without saying, I love you but… Continue

My most beloved Abba, help me put these tears into words!! For your desire in my life is to be ALONE, to find You, to love You. For in my life the moments Ive accomplished the most, or I can say I cherish the most, were the moments spent ALONE. Those moments worth more than gold. Yes, I remember, when nights seemed like day, when rest was not upon me, when I cried and You embraced me, held me close. When all I needed was You. I was empty I had nothing, and how you gently filled… Continue

THE MANY LAYERS OF SNOW
The clouds gather one by one, as they hide away the beauty of the sun. One by one till its light is seen no more. The sky thunders as the snow begins to fall, one by one it layers the earth, the beauty of what the sun brings is seen no more. But the sun rests withing the soul covered with the many layers of snow.
The many eyes through the window see, lifeless and cold, wondering how could it be there was once laughter and joy. For all they see is layers of… Continue

Not trying to bring up bad things, or sad ones, not trying to depress anyone, just want to bring up some facts we need to be ready for. We all see what is happening with our money system in the USA, and really the whole wide world. Things are setting up for a one world government, or something like that in the very near future. Everything the government tries to do, seems to backfire, and things seem to be falling down the drain. When you look at history, there is one common thread that seems… Continue

The Eradication of the Jew from
In the adventure film, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Dr. Jones, in one of his more academic moments, asks his university class to study the difference between “migration” and “exodus.” This intrigued me, so, like a good student of the man whose name means “adventure,” I decided to investigate. “Migration” refers to someone or… Continue

ANCIENT SECT OF THE NAZARENES
By James Scott Trimm
In part one I laid out for you the ancient leadership structure of the ancient sect of the Nazarenes, the original Jewish followers of Yeshua as the Messiah.
We discussed that endeavoring to the unity of the Body ultimately requires reconstruction and implementation of the leadership structure of the ancient Nazarenes.
As many of you know, in 1996 we began… Continue

ANCIENT SECT OF THE NAZARENES
By James Scott Trimm
Many of you over the years have told me that you are uncomfortable with “organized religion”. Yet Scripturally we all know that YHWH is not an author of confusion (1Cor. 14:33) that He desires that everything be done on a decent and orderly manner (1Cor. 14:40).
We know that built into the Torah was a structure of order. Moses “sat and judged” (Ex. 18:13), established… Continue

Every sentence of Torah contains seventy facets of meaning. In other words there are literally seventy different lessons or meanings that can be drawn from each verse. Every single word of Torah also contains additional gleanings and every concept raised by a facit or meaning has four levels of understanding. The Hebrew word for these four levels is “pardes” and is an acronym for the names of each level:
1. Pashat means… Continue

A lot of Biblical scholars like to ask the question "Are we in the End Times?" Then they go through a list of modern miseries and leave it up to you to decide, because they are too gutless to give you their conclusion. So let's look at the quintessetial End Time verse and find out:
"But you, Dani'el, keep these words secret, and seal up the book until the time of the end. Many will rush here and there as knowledge increases."… Continue
