Very long but worth the read.
THE GOSPEL OF SHALOM
INTRODUCTION: Shalom Aleichem
Shalom Aleichem friends may shalom remain with you as you hear the message I am sending to you. This week I was finally released to begin writing down all the words that Yahshua has shown me from His Holy Book about the word Shalom. You would think there would be a page or two about one word, but there is so muchto write I haven’t really known where to begin.
Every time I think I have found every nugget and connecting dot, there it is again, another link. I used to look for nuggets of shalom, but have found a rich golden vein instead. It leads a path throughout the entire Word of YHWH and was purposely placed there for us to see. I pray you see it today and that the veil would be removed from our eyes to behold Yahshua in it. I feel honored and humbled that He would reveal these things to an ordinary girl (older girl at that, lol), but thank Him with all of my heart for the adventure.
Every place I have taught this powerful message, miracles have taken place and people’s lives have been changed forever. Surprisingly, pastors, teachers, and believers of every kind come and say to me, “I have never heard this message in all my years of serving him”. They are moved to implement the truth they have heard and be obedient to Yahshua’s instructions that we have been blind to and chosen to ignore, thinking it wasn’t for us
I believe this message has been hidden for this very hour that we live in, for we will need the peace that passes all understanding that Yahshua left for us; and we will need the power and protection given to us in the full armor of YHWH, to get us through the difficult times ahead. It is a message that resonates through the Word from Genesis to Revelation and permeates the ministry of our savior Yahshua the Messiah in His life and in His teaching the disciples how to walk, live and move in the Kingdom of Shalom.
It does not surprise me that it is in the Torah portion this week. Actually that was my final confirmation that it was time, along with a little dove that adopted me and remained on my land for
several months. I will tell this story in detail later, but for now let’s
get started on this wonderful message that has permeated my inmost being for so long. It is my desire that in this message that you will find the shalom peace that passes all understanding dwelling in your mind, soul, body and spirit. And that you would come to know and understand the instructions that Yahshua left with us to revive us, so we may walk in a place of wholeness, health, completeness, protection, and blessing. May your eyes be opened to truth and may your feet be guided to the paths of shalom. There in the green pastures, beside the still waters, may you walk in His ultimate love and divine protection.
You will be surprised at all of the places we have overlookedshalom’s
presence, power, and importance. So come and fly with me on the wings of the dove and I will carry you to a place in His Holy Kingdom where you will find a Shalom peace that remains forever.
YHWH’s Perfect Words
Torah portion Lev.16; Isaiah 57:14 to 58:14
14 Then he will say, "Keep building! Keep building! Clear the way! Remove everything blocking my people's path!" 15 For thus says the High, Exalted One who lives forever, whose name is Holy: "I live in the high and holy place but alsowith the broken and humble, in order to revive the spirit of the humble and revive the hearts of the broken ones. 16 For I will not fight them forever or always nurse my anger; otherwise their spirits would faint before me, the creatures I myself have made. 17 It was because of their flagrant greed that I was angry and struck them; I hid myself and was angry, but they continued on their own rebellious way. 18 I have seen their ways, and I will heal them; I will lead them and give comfort to them and to those who mourn for them 19 I will create the right words: 'Shalom shalom to those far off and to
those nearby!' says YHWH; 'I will heal them!'"
20 But the wicked are like the restless sea - unable to be still, its waters toss up mud and dirt. 21 There is no shalom, says my Elohim, for the wicked.
I have loved the word that means ―Peace‖, that is… ―Shalom‖ in Hebrew, for over 35 years now and there are many stories to tell about how this word has changed my life forever. I have studied about and made notes for 8 years in preparation for this moment when our awesome Prince of Peace (Sar Shalom) would release me to put pen to paper and share the message and to prepare the way for His bride. I have known for a few weeks now it was time but have been waiting for that moment when Yahshua would say…..‖, "Keep building! Keep building! Clear the way! Remove everything blocking my people's path!" 15 For thus says the High, Exalted One who lives forever, whose name is Holy: "I live in the high and holy place but also with the broken and humble, in order to revive the spirit of the humble and revive the hearts of the broken ones……
19 I will create the right words: 'Shalom shalom to those far off and to those nearby!' says YHWH; 'I will heal them!'"
In other translations it says He createsPERFECT WORDS and these words are to bring healing, revival, and clear the way for us to get there
If our Almighty Abba Father says these words are perfect, then they must be powerful! And we will see how He himself uses these powerful words from Genesis to Revelation. They are His covenant, blessing, restoration, warfare, armor, preparation, power and even His very Son‘s name: Sar
Shalom, Prince of Peace.
If Yahshua is the Prince of Peace, then He must be the Prince over that Kingdom. The Kingdom of Shalom is then Yahshua‘s dominion and can also be ours. We are to learn to dwell in His kingdom of rest and provision and use the weapons of protection and armor that are provided for us there, for the battle is YHWH‘s
Come now and learn about the much overlooked Gospel of Shalom. Gospel means truth and we have been putting on the armor out of Ephesians 6 for decades. This included putting on the shoes of the gospelof shalom. But we haven‘
t even touched on, or begun to grasp the vast expanse of what dwells in those shoes or even what the Gospel of Peace means. I am going to show you from creation to the birth, life, and teachings of Yahshua, what is the truth and message of Shalom, my favorite word.
I will be using the Hebrew spelling for Abba Fathers name which is YHWH. I am also using the Complete Jewish Bible, the Hebrew Names Bible and the King James Bible for references. All scripture is referenced from the Complete Jewish Bible unless notated by these initials HNB, or KJV. In the Hebrew names and Complete Jewish Bible they use the true Hebrew names and this is why I use them over other translations. However the King James many times shows closest to the true meaning so for this reason I may alternate to it. I will notate in parenthesis what name or word that has been replaced so you may recognize how we knew them originally. Look for the parenthesis for the answers. I have also changed the hidden name of YHWH back to its original spelling, which was hidden by the translators by writing LORD or ADONAI or GOD in large letters replacing the name of YHWH. This was done by the Jews to keep His name Holy and so no one would misuse it. However in Isaiah it states in chapter 12 that the name is to be proclaimed that His name is to be exalted and has become our salvation, strength and song. We are to call on the Name so it must not be hidden, it is being revealed again to us in these last days.
1In that day you will say, "I will give thanks to you, YHWH; for though you were angry with me, your anger has turned away and you comfort me. 2
Behold, God is my salvation. I will trust, and will not be afraid; for YHWH, theYHWH, is my strength and song; and he has
become my yeshu`ah (salvation)."3 Therefore with joy you shall draw water out of the wells of yeshu`ah. 4 In that day you will say, "Give thanks to YHWH! Call on His name. Declare His doings among the peoples. Proclaim that his name is exalted! 5 Sing to YHWH, for he has done excellent things! Let this be known in all the eretz! (land) 6 Cry aloud and shout, you inhabitant of Tziyon (Zion); for great in the midst of you is the Holy One of Yisra'el!" HNB
The name of the Holy Spirit is The Ruach HaKodesh meaning wind or breath of Holiness. This is another favorite meaning of mine. It signifies that the breath that YHWH breathed in us was His very breath, and that is the life that lives in us. He moves and breaths in us. When we speak creative words as He did there is life to back up those words. The power of life and death truly is in the tongue.
The name Mashiach is also used instead of Messiah which is the English translation of the title. The Hebrew words have so much more meaning and depth I just prefer to use them.
The Meaning of Shalom
We will begin with the literal meaning of the word shalom in the paleo Hebrew which is the ancient text, or original Hebrew, which were word pictures. This form of Hebrew had letters that formed pictures to illustrate the meaning of the letter.
he eo- e ew ph e e ew ), is an abjad offshoot of the ancient Semitic alphabet, identical to the Phoenician alphabet. At the very least, it dates to the 10th century BCE. It was used as the main vehicle for writing the Hebrew language by the Israelites. An abjad is a type of writing system in which each symbol always or usually stands for a consonant; the reader must supply the appropriate vowel. (Courtesy Wikipedia on line dictionary)
These word pictures are so amazing and shed such light on what the words of Torah really meant.
( excerpt fromYarah Ministries in italics)
The twenty-first letter of the Hebrew alphabet is the Sheen. Its literal meaning is "teeth" (picture the 3 upright legs as your lower front teeth) and the symbolic meaning is "sharp", "to consume, devour or destroy". The two most important words that bear out the theme of "destroy" begin with the sheen. They are the word for "Repent" [Shoov] and the word meaning peace, wholeness and wellness (Shalom).
This is because repentance comes when we "destroy" our old house, leaving nothing to turn back to.
The word meaning peace, wholeness, wellness, and completeness [Shalom] tells us that peace comes when we:
"destroy" the authority that causes chaos.
To restore our fellowship with the Father we must "destroy" our old "house" as part of our repentance. Then we must enter YHWH‘s house to revive our relationship with
him. This is clearly illustrated in the shalom offering in Leviticus which we are going to explore.
The Atbash of the word shalom is:
“In My Palm.”
‗We truly have shalom/peace when we know the Sovereign YHWH has us in the palm of His hand and under the shadow of His protective wings. The Prince of Shalom is also the Good Shepherd who holds us in His Hand of Protection:
“27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28 and I give them age-abiding life; and they will never perish, and no one shall seize them out of My hand. 29 My Father who has given
them to Me is greater than all, and no one can seize out of the hand of My Father. 30 I and the Father are one.John 10:28-30
(Excerpt from the Atbash by Craig Peters)
There is a complete explanation of what the Atbash is, as a hidden code in Torah revealing true meanings of words, written by a friend of mine, Craig Peters, at the end of the book. Craig is a committed believer in Yahushua the Messiah who has devoted his life to feeding the sheep; and asserts that the Atbash hidden in Torah is far superior to the man-made commentaries like the Talmud and Mishnah.
‗According to Strong's Concordance 7965 Shalom means completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, the absence of agitation or discord. Shalom comes from the root verb shalom meaning to be complete, perfect and full. In Modern Hebrew the obviously related word Shelem means to pay for, and Shulam
means to be fully paid.
Yeshua is calledSar Shalom, Prince of Peace, which perfectly describes the ministry and personality of our Messiah, and He alone has fully paid for our sins (Isaiah 9:6).‘(
Excerpt from www.therefinersfire.org)
If the word―shalom‖means in the original text ―to destroy the authority which establishes chaos‖, then there must first be warfare to destroy, and the result of this warfare is: completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, and the absence of agitation or discord. That would be the peace that passes all understanding spoken of by our Prince of Peace, Yahshua. He taught the disciples about the word shalom and its proper use so let us explore Yahshua‘s teachings. As the Prince of Shalom, He w
ould know best about the word and its proper use.
How to Enter
First, in order to understand the foundation, we must look to the illustration Yahshua gave us inMatthew 10:1-16
regarding how we are to enter the house. (Complete Jewish Bible)
1. Yahshua called his twelve talmidim (disciples) and gave them authority to drive out unclean spirits and to heal every kind of disease and weakness. 2. These are the names of the twelve emissaries: First, Shim`on (Simon), called Kefa, and Andrew his brother, Ya`akov Ben-Zavdai (Jacob)and Yochanan (John) his brother, 3. Philip and Bar-Talmai,‟om Thomas) and Mattityahu (Matthew) the tax-collector, Ya`akov Bar-Halfai and Taddai, 4. Shim`on (Simon) the Zealot, and Y‟hud h Judas of Iscariot) from K'riot, who betrayed him. 5. These twelve Yahshua sent out with the following instructions: "Don't go into the territory of the Goyim, and don't enter any town in Shomron, 6. but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Isra'el. 7. As you go, proclaim, `The Kingdom of Heaven is near,' 8. heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those afflicted with tzara'at, and expel demons. You have received without paying, so give without asking payment. 9. Don't take money in your belts, no gold, no silver, no copper; 10. and for the trip don't take a pack, an extra shirt, shoes or a walking stick -- a worker should be given what he needs. 11. "When you come to a town or village, look for someone trustworthy and stay with him until you leave. 12. When you enter someone's household, say, `Shalom aleikhem!' 13. If the home deserves it, let your shalom rest on it; if not, let your shalom return to you. 14. But if the people of a house or town will not welcome you or listen to you, leave it and shake its dust from your feet! 15. Yes, I tell you, it will be more tolerable on the Day of Judgment for the people of S'dom and `Amora (Sodom and Gomorrah) than for that town! 16. "Pay attention!
I am sending you out like sheep among wolves, so be as
prudent as snakes and as harmless as doves.
As you can see it is something we have read again and again but I am going to show you what it means and how it was meant to be implemented.
The disciples were to be as prudent as snakes in being very careful and discreet as to how they entered a town or a house and as harmless as a dove carrying an olive branch of peace of anointing in his beak.
Shalom Aleichemmeans ―peace be with you‖or may it remain with you. Yahshua was telling the disciples to send shalom into every house or town where they were getting ready to enter. Yahshua told them the sign whether they were to stay there was, if the shalom rested within the town or in the house. One of the signs of this happening was if the people there received and heard the words being taught. Then they were to begin to proclaim ―The Kingdom‖
(of shalom) to the people and the fruit of repentance would follow with signs and wonders. The disciples could then remain there proclaiming the Kingdom of shalom, which as described in Isaiah 57 would remove everything blocking their paths and thus bring the healing miracles, deliverance, raising of the dead and repentance that refreshes the people. Remember when Yahshua was unable to do any miracles in a particular town because of unbelief? There were no seekers of shalom there upon whom His shalom would remain. If you notice: they sent shalom before them, then shalom seekers would receive it and shalom would remain there, and then miracles would break out. However, if shalom was unable to remain in that place and was not received, even the Son of YHWH could do no miracles there; thus, Yahshua moved on. Then He did as He told the disciples to do, shake the dust off of their feet as a testimony against that city for judgment to come upon them. So Yahshua instructed them that if their shalom returned, then there was no seeker of shalom in that place and they were to keep moving.
If you notice, shalom is spoken of as a possession belonging to each person. It only returns to the person who sends it. Obviously you must have shalom to send it. The
verse also states that ―your‖shalom will remain upon thehouse while you are there. Let‘s explore the Word and see
why this could be so.
1At that moment the talmidim came to Yahshua and asked, "Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?" 2 He called a child to him, stood him among them, 3 and said, "Yes! I tell you that unless you change and become like little children, you won't even enter the Kingdom of Heaven! 4 So the greatest in the Kingdom is who ever makes himself as humble as this child. 5 Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me; 6 and whoever ensnares one of these little ones who trust me, it would be better for him to have a millstone hung around his neck and be drowned in the open sea! 7
Woe to the world because of snares! V10) See that you never despise one of these little ones, for I tell you that their angels in heaven are continually seeing the face of my Father in heaven. CJB
To enter the kingdom of Sar Shalom you must change and be like a child for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven (Matt. 19). I think that shalom could be the overshadowing of angels in our lives, much like the shalom angels who watched over the Savior Yahshua when He was born who also announced His arrival. Matthew 18 says that the humble, childlike, trusting, seekers of shalom, are the greatest in the Kingdom. It is thehumble childlike believers who have been assigned angels that behold the face of YHWH at all times. This is for their protection and guidance so that their feet will stay on the path of shalom. ―Their angels in Heaven‖ implies ownership as well, so this could
be the case; shalom could be shalom angels who watch over us.
Psalms 34:7 The angel of YHWH encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. 8 O taste and see that YHWH is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
Luke 10:1-6 says:
1 After this, Yahshua appointed seventy other talmidim (disciples
) and sent them on ahead in pairs to every town and place where he
himself was about to go. 2 He said to them, "To be sure, there is a large harvest. But there are few workers. Therefore, plead with the Lord of the Harvest that he speed workers out to gather in his harvest. 3 Get going now, but pay attention! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. 4 Don't carry a money-belt or a pack, and don't stop to schmooze (greet
) people on the road. 5 "Whenever you enter a house, first say, `Shalom!' to the household. 6 If a seeker of shalom is there, your `Shalom!' will find its rest with him; and if there isn't, it will return to you.
Notice that Yahshua is talking to the 70 disciples here, when before he instructed the 12 disciples in the same manner. I believe this is to show us this is not just for the few but for everyone, 70 is the number of all the nations. I will make this even clearer when I get into the shalom offering. But for now,let‘s see what Yahs
hua is saying.
Do not enter any house before sending shalom first to destroy the authority that would establish chaos. So peace means war! Before there can be peace you must first conquer the enemy, prepare the way for the Kingdom and its Prince to arrive, and remove everything blocking the way of the path of Yahuah‘s people
So YHWH created these perfect words to say:'Shalom shalom to those far off and to those nearby!' says YHWH; 'I will heal them!
He states the purpose of the words in Isaiah 57: Clear
the way! Remove everything blocking my people's path!"
And then He reveals the results of these powerful words being sent forth in Isaiah 57:
14 Then he will say, "Keep building! Keep building! (Proclaiming the Kingdom in order to extend it) Clear the way! (Send shalom to destroy the enemy’s authority there) Remove everything blocking my people's path!"(Shalom destroys the power of chaos in people’s lives) 15 For thus says the High, Exalted One who lives forever, whose name is Holy: "I live in the high and holy place but also with the broken and humble, in order to revive the spirit of the humble and revive the hearts of the broken ones.(
YHWH wants to
revive the humble and broken ones) 16 For I will not fight them forever or always nurse my anger; otherwise their spirits would faint before me, the creatures I myself have made. 17 It was because of their flagrant greed that I was angry and struck them; I hid myself and was angry, but they continued on their own rebellious way. (rebellion and greed are the things that have blocked their paths to YHWH and to healing
) 18 I have seen their ways, and I will heal them; I will lead them and give comfort to them and to those who mourn for them 19 I will create the right (perfect) words 'Shalom shalom to those far off and to those nearby!' says YHWH; 'I will heal them!'
There is a lot of action going on here. YHWH wants to revive the people, show them mercy and forgive them and bring healing to them in order to increase the kingdom of YHWH by adding them to His family. His Kingdom is the Kingdom of Shalom that passes all understanding. Our part in this is to keep building and prepare the way of Yahshua by sending shalom before us, declaring His Kingdom in the places He is getting ready to show up. This means before we make a phone call, send an e-mail, enter theexpressway, enter a business, enter someone‘s
home, enter a new day, or even the house of YHWH, we should send shalom before us. It is so He can destroy any authority that would establish chaos in that place and shalom can be established there. It also creates a place of protection and harmony, well-being and favor wherever we enter.
Let‘s see what Yah
shua said the result would be.
In Luke 10 He says
1. After this, then Yahshua appointed seventy other talmidim and sent them on ahead in pairs toevery town and place where he himself was about to go. 2 He said to them, "To be sure, there is a large harvest. But there are few workers. Therefore, plead with YHWH of the Harvest that he speed workers out to gather in his harvest.
Notice that He is sending them to prepare the way for Him to enter the places He was about to go? He is preparing for
the Harvest and asking them to pray that even more people would help prepare the way. The Prince of Shalom is building the Kingdom of Shalom for YHWH. As He goes forth, the authority that establishes chaos is destroyed, and then healing, peace, revival, restoration and establishment of His Kingdom comes, which includesfellowship with our Abba Father
. Remember what it said in Isaiah 57:15
"I live in the high and holy place, but also with the broken and humble, in order to revive the spirit of the humble and revive the hearts of the broken ones
He says He lives with the broken and humble ones and wants to revive their hearts. The ones that are the broken ones are the ones who mourn for the rebellious and greedy ones. They are the ones who pray for them. Yahshua sent the disciples on ahead in pairs to every town and place where he himself was about to go. Yahshua is the head of the harvest but we must prepare the way for Him by sending shalom in prayer to every town and city and home. 'Shalom shalom to those far off and to those nearby!' says YHWH; ‗I
will heal them!'
s ms 122 1 “I w s g d when hey s id un ome; Let us go into the house of YHWH. 2 Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem. 3 Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together: 4 whither the tribes go up, the tribes of Yah, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of YHWH. 5 For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David. 6 Pray for the shalom of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. 7 Shalom be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. 8 For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, shalom aleikhem. 9 Because of the house of YHWH our Elohim, I will seek thy good.
When we pray and send shalom to Jerusalem (Yerushalayim) we are literally standing within her gates and taking ground for the house of YHWH, the Kingdom of Sar Shalom and preparing the way for Him to come there to do
mighty miracles. “For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, shalom aleikhem.‖ ―Pray for the shalom of Jerusalem (Yerushalayim): they shall prosper that love thee. Shalom be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.
Yahshua said to them, "To be sure, there is a large harvest. But there are few workers. Therefore, plead (pray) with the Elohim of the Harvest that he speed workers out to gather in his harvest. Pray the YHWH of the harvest to send laborers out to gather the harvest.“For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, shalom aleikhem.‖ I pray
these will be your words before you are finished reading this book.
Prepare the Way
So we must send Shalom before us to prepare the way for the Sar Shalom Prince of Peace and His Kingdom to grow and show up and demonstrate His majesty. This is why the body of Mashiach has been so powerless. We have failed to prepare the way for Him by sending shalom before us. Yahshua teaches the disciples that if they send shalom and proclaim the Kingdom then they have authority to do the awesome miracles that we have so longed to see andbelieved for. It was right under our noses and we didn‘t see
it. We are blind, having eyes we cannot see. Open our eyes Abba Father send shalom to our eyes and our thoughts so we can walk in your truth, power, and shalom kingdom. Please keep building and we pray you will send more laborers into the harvest. Let us never forget Abba to continue to pray.
John the Baptist was to prepare the way of Yahshua, so let us look at what was prophesied about him in
Luke chapter 1:66-80 (complete Jewish Bible)
Everyone who heard of them said to himself, "What is this child going to be?" For clearly the hand of YHWH was with him. 67 His father Z'kharyah (Zechariah) was filled with the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy
Spirit) and spoke this prophecy: 68 "Praised be YHWH, the God of Isra'el, because he has visited and made a ransom to liberate his people 69 by raising up for us a mighty Deliverer who is a descendant of his servant David. 70 It is just as he has spoken through the mouth of the prophets from the very beginning -- 71 that we should be delivered from our enemies and from the power of all who hate us. 72 "This has happened so that he might show the mercy promised to our fathers -- that he would remember his holy covenant, 73 the oath he swore before Avraham(Abraham) avinu (our father) 74 to grant us that we, freed from our enemies, would serve him without fear, 75 in holiness and righteousness before him all our days. 76 You, child, will be called a prophet of Ha`Elyon; (The Most High)
you will go before the YHWH to prepare his way 77 by spreading the knowledge among his people that deliverance comes by having sinsfo given 78 h ough ou Y W ‟s mos ende me cy, which c uses the Sunrise to visit us from Heaven, 79 to shine on those in darkness, living in the shadow of death, and to guide our feet into the paths of shalom." 80 The child grew and became strong in spirit, and he lived in the wilderness until the time came for him to appear in public to Isra'el.
John was to shine on those in darkness, living in the shadow of death and to guide our feet into the paths of shalom. He came in the paths of shalom and prepared the way for Yahshua.
Luke 1:5 In the days of Herod, King of Y'hudah (Judah), there was a cohen (priest) named Z'kharyah (Zechariah) who belonged to the Aviyah division. His wife was a descendant of Aharon (Aaron), and her name was Elisheva (Elizabeth). 6 Both of them were righteous before YHWH, observing all the mitzvot and ordinances of YHWH blamelessly. 7 But they had no children, because Elisheva was barren; and they were both well along in years. 8 One time, when Z'kharyah was fulfilling his duties as cohen during his division's period of service before YHWH, 9 he was chosen by lot (according to the custom among the cohanim) to enter the Temple and burn incense. 10 All the people were outside, praying, at the time of the incense burning, 11 when there appeared to him an angel of YHWH standing to the right of the incense altar. 12 Z'kharyah was startled and terrified at the sight. 13 But the angel said to him, "Don't be afraid, Z'kharyah; because your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elisheva will bear you a son, and you are to name him Yochanan (John). 14 He will be a joy and a delight to you, and many people will rejoice
when he is born, 15 for he will be great in the sight of YHWH. He is never to drink wine or other liquor, and he will be filled with the Ruach HaKodesh even from his mother's womb. 16 He will turn many of the people of Isra'el to YHWH their Elohim. 17 He will go out ahead of YHWH in the spirit and power of Eliyahu (Elijah) to turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous,to make ready for YHWH a people prepared."
So you see that John went out ahead of Yahshua to prepare the way for him. He was a bearer of Shalom and proclaimed the kingdom of shalom to prepare the way for Yahshua. He also was to turn our feet into paths of righteousness by repentance, and our feet into paths of shalom.
YHWH Sends Shalom
Now where do you think Yahshua got this teaching from? He said He only says what the Father says and does what the Father does so it would have to come from the Father.Let‘s look deeper to see what the Word say
s about this.
4 So Yosef, because he was a descendant of David, went up from the town of Natzeret in the Galil to the town of David, called Beit-Lechem, in Y'hudah, 5 to be registered, with Miryam, to whom he was engaged, and who was pregnant. 6 While they were there, the time came for her to give birth; 7 and she gave birth to her first child, a son. She wrapped him in cloth and laid him down in a feeding trough, because there was no space for them in the living-quarters. 8 In the countryside nearby were some shepherds spending the night in the fields, guarding their flocks, 9 when an angel of YHWH appeared to them, and the Sh'khinah of YHWH shone around them. They were terrified; 10 but the angel said to them, "Don't be afraid, because I am here announcing to you Good News that will bring great joy to all the people. 11 This very day, in the town of David, there was born for you a Deliverer who is the Messiah, Elohim. 12 Here is how you will know: you will find a baby wrapped in cloth and lying in a feeding trough." 13 Suddenly, along with the angel was
a vast army from heaven praising Elohim: 14 "In the highest heaven, glory to YHWH! And on earth, SHALOM among people of good will!"
First the angel declares the good news of the kingdom, and then a vast army of YHWH appears and praises YHWH and declares the kingdom of Yah. The angels then proclaimShalom on the earth and to shalom- seekers
who will receive Him the Sar Shalom/ Prince of Peace.
This was actually the first place that YHWH revealed this part of the truth to me. He told me there were angels that were called shalom angels and that they go with me when I minister or travel and I send shalom before me. I was surprised as I felt unworthy of this honor. Then I wanted to make sure and test the spirit, so I said ―then show me in the word YHWH so I can trust the word I‘ve heard today.‖He
then spoke this scripture to me. I was awe struck to say the least! He instructed me to go to this scripture and there it was, the vast host of Heaven proclaiming shalom to the Earth to prepare the way of our Mashiac. This led me to believe that His vast army is an army of shalom angels who fight against chaos for YHWH and destroy the heads of that chaos. These are the powers and principalities in the heavenlies spoken of in Ephesians 6., which includes the armor we are to put on to be protected from the principalities of chaos, and that is why the FULL armor of YHWH is required. This also includes our feet being shod with the gospel of shalom. This comes by trust in Him and in sending shalom before us, and announcing the Kingdom, to activate the Kingdom of Shalom on our behalf. This is the truth (gospel) of shalom that Yahshua told us to carry into all the earth. It is the feet shod with the truth of shalom that we are to take on ourselves we can stand in the day. This may be the very word of our testimony that is added to the blood of the lamb in Revelation so we can overcome in the day.
9"The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”(that is, the word of faith which we preach): 9 that if you confess with your mouth the Yahshua is Mashiach and believe in your heart that YHWH has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, "Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame." 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same YHWH over all is rich to all who call upon Him. 13 For "whoever calls on the name of YHWH shall be saved." 14 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of shalom, who bring glad tidings of good things!" 16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, "YHWH, who has believed our report?" 17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of YHWH. 18 But I say, have they not heard? Yes indeed: "Their sound has gone out to all the earth, And their words to the ends of the world." 19 But I say, did Israel not know? First Moses says: "I will provoke you to jealousy by those who are not a nation; I will move you to anger by a foolish nation." 20 But Isaiah is very bold and says: "I was found by those who did not seek Me; I was made manifest to those who did not ask for Me." 21 But to Israel he says: "All day long I have stretched out My hands to a disobedient and contrary people."
So you see that YHWH has truly created perfect words for the healing of the nations. The sound of it has gone out to all of the nations, and the words to the ends of the world. Wow our shalom words can travel farther than we can imagine! Not only is there healing in those words but there is the harvest, the protection of his children, and the expanding of His Kingdom. YHWH created His Son Yahshua the Prince of Shalom to bring this shalom kingdom to us here on earth. But we must prepare the way, as co- laborers with Him, for
the sending of shalom to those far off and those nearby. That is saying; the ones that are away from YHWH or do not know Him and the ones that are very close by. (Not the lukewarm)
10Finally, my brethren, be strong in YHWH, and in the power of his might.
11Put on the whole armor of YHWH that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of YHWH that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; (shalom)
16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of YHWH:
18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19And for me, that utterance may be given unto me that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
I pray your eyes are open now to the gospel or truth of shalom and how we are to walk in the Kingdom of shalom and proclaimYHWH‘s Kingdom
in all of the earth.
Yahshua Sends Shalom
Next we will look at the way Yahshua prepared the way for others to be filled with the Ruach HaKodesh so that He could come and enter men of shalom.
In the evening that same day, the first day of the week, when the talmidim (disciples)were gathered together behind locked doors out of fear of the Judeans, Yahshua came, stood in the middle andsaid, “Shalom aleikhem!" 20 Having greeted them, he showed them his hands and his side. The talmidim were overjoyed to see Yahshua. 21 "Shalom aleikhem!" Yahshua repeated. "Just as the Father sent me, I myself am also sending you." 22 Having said this, he breathed on them and said to them, "Receive the Ruach HaKodesh! 23 If you forgive someone's sins, their sins are forgiven; if you hold them, they are held."
So Yahshua says Shalom remain (aleikhem) in these men of shalom, my friends and seekers of shalom. Here it is again Peace peace. Shalom shalom, perfect peace, double shalom, Yahshua said it twice just like His Father in
Isaiah 57. Doing this He prepared the way for the house of man to be filled with the Ruach HaKodesh. Interestingly the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) literal translation is Wind orBreath of Holiness. Yahshua‘s very breath released the
presence of YHWH in the disciples. So you see that spoken words mixed with the Breath of Holiness dwelling in us, releases life and the blessing. So when we say shalom in obedience to Him it is as if He said it.
John 20, Verse 21 says
"Shalom aleichem!" Yahshua repeated. "Just as the Father sent me, I myself am also sending you." 22 Having said this, he breathed on them and said to them, "Receive the Ruach HaKodesh! 23 If you forgive someone's sins, their sins are forgiven; if you hold them, they are held."
Do you see that Yahshua is showing the pattern here himself, YHWH sent shalom (The Prince of Shalom) to the
earth and to mankind and now Yahshua is sending shalom into the disciples to secure the Kingdom and extend it. Heeven hands down the authority to forgive men‘s sins now that they are filled with the Ruach to show the fullness of authority that has been given to them through His name and His Kingdom. Yahshua said he had to leave so the Ruach could come. The Holy Spirit or the Ruach HaKodesh, ―The Wind or breath of Holiness‖
that Yahshua prepared the way for by sending shalom aleikhem, prepared the way for the Ruach to show up again on Pentecost. He came as a mighty rushing wind and flaming fire to fill the people with the Word of YHWH and His power. And the One that Yahshua prepared the way for came on Pentecost. (Shavuot)
I use a lot of Hebrew words in this book because they are so much more powerful and their meaning go so much deeper than their counterparts, the same words in English.
Shalom returned to YHWH so that Shalom could also remain here with us. Shalom shalom, double shalom. Now we are healed and can be restored to fellowship with the Abba Father. This is the ultimate goal of YHWH. Yahshua‘s
shalom remains with us, and yet He is with the Father standing at His right hand ever interceding for us. HalleluYah thank you Abba Father, we have truly been grafted in, adopted as your very own children. Thank you YHWH, for this we praise and magnify your Holy name forever.
Now I want to tell you about the little dove who came to me
one day on my ranch named ―Shalom Acres‖ Hey, what else would I name it? LOL…..
One day I was outside with my husband working on our land when a little dove came right by me. I looked at her and talked to her wondering if she was injured because she
wasn‘t flying away. I continued to work and as I moved
around the yard she would fly to a new branch close by me. By the third time she came I was really talking to Abba Father asking Him what was going on. I walked over and picked her up and she was so gentle and friendly. I knew this was very unusual and had some meaning so I had my husband take this picture of her and me with my phone right after I picked her up.
I fed her and talked to her every day and we were great friends.
The day came when my husband said ―what are you going to do with that bird‖ I knew it was time already that we
just turn her loose as I could see no purpose in keeping her other than I just adored her, and the fact I had yet to find out why she was here. So my husband opened the winter house and left the door open, so she finally ventured out. I really was so sad because I really loved her but she needed to be free.
The next day I looked for her and there she was! I put food and water out for her every day and we would coo to each other in dove talk each morning and evening. My Lovey Dovey truly was a lovey dovey and was my lovey dovey, I hoped forever.
I named the dove, Lovey Dovey and she stayed with me about 3 months inmy winter house I call it. It‘s a little
house attached to the tree house and swing we made for me and the grandkids. It is made of lattice on the front half and wood on the back half so in Arizona it is just perfect to keep one warm in the night and cool in the day.
After several months Lovey Dovey wasn‘t to be seen. I would call to her and no answer. There are hundreds of Doves on our land so it is really funny that I knew my Dove from all the rest. It was because she was unique! I would coo to her and she would coo back and let me know which tree she was in. Then when I would come close, all the other doves would fly away, but not Lovey Dovey. She always remained
in the tree waiting for me to talk to her.
Then the day came when I couldn‘t find her for 3 days Ilooked for her and called to her several times a day. I asked my husband if he had seen her and he said no. I cannot tell you how sad I was. I didn‘t know if one of the feral cats had
gotten her or a hawk or some other animal, as we live in the country. I continued to look for her and hope to find her again.
It was Sabbath and I checked my e-mail for anything pertaining to the Shabbat as I only open that type of e-mail on my resting day with YHWH. I got a really nice Sabbath blessing sent out by my friend Bob Ward. Then I went outside and was walking around the yard praying. I never heard a sound, but looked up for some reason up at the 4x4 oak beams that stick out from the tree house. We left them there sticking out for the slide we intended to attach there and hadn‘t gotten around to. There sitting on the beam in total silence was my Lovey Dovey. I was so happy to see her. I asked her if she had gotten a boyfriend or what had kept her from coming to see me. Doves mate for life and they are very devoted to their mates. She still didn‘t coo to me just sat and listened to me talk to her. Then I asked my Abba ―Why have you sent this little Dove to me Father?‖And He spoke to me ―Because I wanted you to know that shalom has remained with you.‖ At that, I just wept and th
anked Him. I felt immensely blessed and honored that my Abba had gone to all of this trouble just to bring this message home to me.
That was the last time I ever saw my Lovey Dovey. She is gone but YHWH‘s love and shalom remain with me. And for
that I am so thankful for the beautiful message He sent through a Dove.
When I went back into the house that Sabbath, I looked at the computer and I had the same e-mail from Bob Ward of Shalom Blessings again. How odd I thought, but I opened it, and to my surprise he had attached one of his paintings of a dove. The dove was sitting on a 4x4 beam on top of a crown of thorns. I am attaching it here so you can see it for yourself.
My mouth fell to the floor as I realized that YHWH had justsealed the message, as in the Word where it says ‗in the mouth of 2 or 3 witnesses it is established.‘ YHWH‘s words
were the first witness, Lovey Dovey was the second, and Bob Wards painting and re-sent e-mail the third.
In the picture, it even looked like the spot on the wood beam that Lovey had sat when YHWH had just spoken to me. The picture has the dove on the stake which Yahshua was crucified on and it is sitting on the crown of thorns as a nest.
That is the way I will always remember Lovey Dovey, remaining in my heart sitting on the wooden beam, and
YHWH sent me a picture to hold close to my heart. She is missed greatly, but a great comfort of the Ruach HaKodeshthe comforter and Yahshua‘s sh
alom that passes all understanding remains with me. For that I am immensely thankful to the Sar Shalom (Prince of Peace).What is the purpose of revealing this message to me? I felt YHWH was saying it was time to release the message I had carried in my heart for years. It was time to bring the Gospel of Shalom to you now.
The Symbol of Shalom
Now we are going to look at the Dove and its symbolism as Shalom, and see how YHWH spoke down through the ages to us about His Kingdom of Shalom through many Doves. Many are in the Bible and that is where we will look first. Then there are some modern day doves and we will also see their significance to the ongoing command to send Shalom before us before we enter any house.
Luke 3: 21 While all the people were being immersed, Yahshua too was immersed. As he was praying, heaven was opened; 22the Ruach HaKodesh came down on him in physical form like a dove; and a voice came from heaven, "You are my Son, whom I love; I am well pleased with you." 23 Yahshua was about thirty years old when he began his public ministry.
John 1:19 Here is Yochanan's testimony: when the Judeans sent cohanim (priests) and L'vi'im (levites) from Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) to ask him, "Who are you?" 20 he was very straightforward and stated clearly, "I am not the Mashiach."(Messiah) 21 "Then who are you?" they asked him. "Are you Eliyahu? (Elijah)" "No, I am not," he said. "Are you `the prophet,' the one we're expecting?" "No," he replied. 22 So they said to him, "Who are you? -- So that we can give an answer to the people who sent us. What do you have to say about yourself?" 23 He answered in the words of Yesha`yahu (Isaiah) the prophet, "I am The voice of someone crying out: `In the desert make the way of YHWH straight!'" 24 Some of those who had been sent were P'rushim. (Pharisees) 25 They asked him, "If you are neither the Mashiach nor Eliyahu (Elijah) nor `the prophet,' then why are you
immersing people?" 26 To them Yochanan (John) replied, "I am immersing people in water, but among you is standing someone whom you don't know. 27He is the one coming after me (John is preparing the way for Him) -- I'm not good enough even to untie his sandal!" 28 All this took place in Beit-Anyah, (Bethany) east of the Yarden, (Jordan) where Yochanan was immersing. 29 The next day, Yochanan saw Yahshua coming toward him and said, "Look! YHWH‟s lamb! The one who is taking away the sin of the world! 30 This is the man I was talking about when I said, `After me is coming someone who has come to rank above me, because he existed before me.' 31 I myself did not know who he was, but the reason I came immersing with water was so that he might be made known to Isra'el." 32 Then Yochanan gave this testimony: "I saw the Spirit coming down from heaven like a dove, and remaining on him. 33 I myself did not know who he was, but the one who sent me to immerse in water said to me, `The one on whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining, this is the one who immerses in the Ruach HaKodesh.' 34 And I have seen and borne witness that this is the Son of YHWH."
After Yahshua came up out of the water, The Ruach HaKodesh came from heaven and descended on him“like a dove” and remained on Him (see Matthew 3:16; Mark 1:10; Luke 3:22; John 1:32). The baptism story built on the pre-existing symbol of the dove as YHWH‘s spirit and firmly established it as the preferred representation of the Ruach (Holy Spirit). It is also clear that The Spirit comes as a Dove and REMAINS on Yahshua after his being immersed in water.
Yahshua taught that shalom remains with the shalom seekers and the men of shalom. John testifies that YHWH foretold to him about the dove remaining on the One that was sent. He said this would indicate that he was The Son of YHWH the Most High Elohim.
Yahshua was the ultimate man of shalom or friend to all of mankind.‗Man of shalom‘ is translated as friend throughout
the Bible. Yahshua would later state that he was calling us
His friends, men of shalom, meaning that we are part of His Kingdom and His family.
YHWH also says He is His beloved son. Remember that the shalom makers are the sons of YHWH in Matt.5:9
Blessed are the shalom makers: for they shall be called the children of YHWH.
Luke 3 s ys i his w y “As he w s p ying, he ven w s opened; 22the Ruach HaKodesh came down on him in physical form like a dove; nd voice c me f om he ven, „You are my Son, whom I love; I am we p e sed wi h you.‟”
So the Dove was the physical form of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit or Wind of Holiness) Luke says that they heard the voice of YHWH declare that this was His Son whom He was well pleased with. So YHWH was showing His favor and lifting up His countenance upon Yahshua and gave Him His very own Shalom. This is clearly linked to Numbers 6:22
YHWH said to Moshe, 23 "Speak to Aharon and his sons, and tell them that this is how you are to bless the people of Isra'el: you are to say to them, 24 'Y'varekh'kha YHWH v'yishmerekha. [May YHWH bless you and keep you.] 25 Ya'er YHWH panav eleikha vichunekka. [May YHWH make his face shine on you and show you his favor.] 26 Yissa YHWH panav eleikha v'yasem l'kha shalom. [May YHVH lift up his face toward you and give you shalom.]' 27 "In this way they are to put my name on the people of Isra'el, so that I will bless them."
If you notice that it is because of the favor of YHWH that He shines upon Him and Yahshua is given shalom. And with shalom we are to put the name of YHWH on the people of Israel and here is the big key it is talking about giving them shalom, so that He will bless them.
Shalom Establishes the Name
Shalom is the ultimate blessing and favor of YHWH. When YHWH places His Holy name upon you it is His ultimate blessing of life here on earth that seals you for eternity to be His forever child.
So Yahshua was sent tobe shalom
and send shalom to remain in the children of YHWH. This would prepare the way for the spirit of YHWH to go to place His name and His Torah in and upon His children. Thus making shalom on earth, and good will towards men. We are called to send shalom and prepare the way for His return and the establishment of His Holy name and His Kingdom. That is the job we are called to if we are truly the sons of YHWH.
John the Dove
Now John also had a gift of shalom. Remember the prophecy over him as a baby in Luke 1:76
You, child, will be called a prophet of Ha`Elyon (the Most High); you will go before Yahshua to prepare his way by spreading the knowledge among his people that deliverance comes by having sins forgiven through our YHWH‟s most tender mercy, which causes the Sunrise to visit us from Heaven, to shine on those in darkness, living in the shadow of death, and to guide our feet into the paths of shalom."
Here it is again, YHWH‘s face shines upon us from Heaven and we receive shalom. His face shines on us when He is not angry with us because of sin and rebellion in our lives. (Isaiah 57) John prepared the way of Yahshua and went before Him so he could guide our feet into the paths of Sar Shalom. Notice it is always the feet that go in the path of shalom. And the fact that John said he couldn‘t even touch Yahshua‘s sandals. The full armor in Ephesians 6 is
the feet shod with shalom. And how lovely are the feet of those who bring the good news of shalom. There are so many words to
establish this truth. In the mouth of 2 or 3 witnesses is every word established. This is beyond 2 or three it is a foundation principle established throughout the Word.
So Yochannon (John) prepared the way for repentance and forgiveness of sins through Yahushua (this nameliterally means ―Yah Saves‖
in Hebrew). The Ruach HaKodesh power was given to the sons of YHWH to forgive men their sins and guide their feet into the paths of shalom, thus bringing laborers into the harvest of the Kingdom of YHWH.
I would have to say that John had the ministry of the dove of preparing the way. Remember that he was filled with the Ruach HaKodesh in the womb when Mary sent shalom before her. That shalom, that she had received from the angel remained in her and she sent shalom to Elizabeth and it remained with John. So when Yahshua came to be baptized by him, he immediately knew The Man of Shalom because of the dove of shalom remaining upon Him.
Sar Shalom our Prince of Peace is the authority in His Kingdom of shalom.Isn‘t it fitting that the Prince of Shalom
should be ruler over a kingdom called Shalom? This would also show why John would be sent to prepare our feet to go into the paths of shalom. It also explains why the priests would pray a blessing of shalom that would seal us for the kingdom and place the name of YHWH on us.
And seek the peace of the citywhither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto YHWH for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace. Verse 11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith YHWH, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. 12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. 13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. 14 And I will be found of you, saith YHWH: and I will turn away your captivity , and I will gather you from all the nations,
and from all the places whither I have driven
you, saith YHWH; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive. KJV
So John is sending the dove/shalom before Him to turn your feet into the paths of repentance and shalom. Give thanks unto the name of YHWH, take on the full armor and stand in the shoes shod with the gospel of shalom and pray for the shalom of Jerusalem, Israel, your city, your country, and the world. In that way we can prepare the way so that shalom can remain in the earth and Yahshua can return to take this world from chaos to shalom as The Lion of Judah.
Psalm 122 (King James Version)
1) I was glad when they said unto me; Let us go into the house of YHWH. 2Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem. 3 Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together: 4 Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of YHWH, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of YHWH. 5 For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David. 6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. 7 Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. 8 For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee. 9 Because of the house of YHWH our Elohim I will seek thy good.
When we send shalom to Israel or Jerusalem, if there is a man of shalom there, your shalom will remain there and your v2) ―feet will stand within the gates of Jerusalem.‖Our feet establish and take ground to prepare the way for Yahshua and v3) ―Jerusalem is builded‖ The ―set thrones of judgment‖ (verse 5) ―in the house of David‖ (Yahshua‘s Kingdom) brings destruction of the chaos and the authority that has established it there in Jerusalem (shalom destroys the authority that establishes chaos). Then give thanks to and proclaim the name of YHWH and the Kingdom of Sar Shalom is being proclaimed through His name. Because of sending forth shalom, YHWH’s name is placed upon the people like in the Aaronic blessing (Numbers 6).
is within the walls, shalom has remained, and the house of YHWH has been established. This is the pattern that has been laid out by YHWH in His Word, much like the pattern He laid out for the Tabernacle. It must be done in the manner He says just as He instructed Moses to do.
Shalom hasn‘t remained on Jerusalem and
that is why we must send shalom to Jerusalem. Our failure to obey this command to pray for her has allowed the enemy (chaos) to take the ground there. We must obey and prepare the way for Mashiac to enter Yerushalayim (Jerusalem), the Head of Shalom is YHWH and Jerusalem means head of shalom. We must prepare the way for YHWH to take up His throne.
We are to build His Kingdom. Romans 14:17
forthe kingdom of YHWH is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, shalom, and joy in the Ruach HaKodesh. 18 For he who serves Mashiac in these things is acceptable to YHWH and approved by men. 19 So then, let us follow after things which make for shalom, and things whereby we may build one another up.
So the assemblies throughout all Yehudah(Judah) and the Galil (Galilee) and Shomron (Samaria)had shalom, and were built up. They were multiplied, walking in the fear of YHWH and in the comfort of the Ruach HaKodesh.
Shalom builds the Kingdom of YHWH and destroys the authority that establishes chaos. Shalom prepares the way for multiplication in the Kingdom, in the fear of YHWH, and the comfort of the Ruach HaKodesh. The comfort of the Ruach HaKodesh is shalom and the fruit of righteousness is shalom. There is another place where it says that if your city has shalom you will have shalom also. In the fear of YHWH, we must pray for our nation and not condemn it to chaos by forsaking prayer. We could be robbing ourselves of the blessings of shalom and the Holy Spirit who I think are one in the same or very closely related. They both bear the
symbol of the dove and it joins them together and one uplifts the other.
Yahshua said He would give us His shalom, and send us another comforter. He said Shalom Aleikhem (peace be with you) and breathed on them and they were filled with the Ruach HaKodesh. The dove obviously marries the 2 together, shalom and the Ruach ha Kodesh and so does Yahshua with his actions.
But he was wounded because of our crimes, crushed because of our sins; the chastisement of our shalom was on him; and by his bruises we are healed.
YHWH is saving us, sealing us and preparing the way for His name to be placed on us by sending shalom before Him. Again the teaching of Yahshua on sending shalom before us into the house to find another ―man of shalom‖there, marked
for the kingdom, is confirmed to be a principle of the kingdom established from long ago. Even from the beginning as well, we will see the dove lead us through time and Torah to reveal this divine principle. We are going to look into many illustrations of preparing the way by sending the dove and or, shalom before us, found throughout the Word of YHWH.
Yahshua the Dove
Yahshua was a dove because He prepared the way for the Ruach HaKodesh to come into the earth and intoYHWH‘s children. ―Shalom on earth, good will towards men‖is what the shalom angels proclaimed as Yahshua entered the house of the earth, and Yahshua fulfilled this proclamation. He turned our feet into the paths of shalom. His words were: ―blessed are the shalom makers for they shall be called the sons of YHWH‖ preparing the way for YHWH‘s name to be written on us. He spoke ―shalom aleikhem‖(peace remain with you) to the disciples and then ―receive ye the Ruach HaKodesh‖thus making us the templ
of the Ruach HaKodesh the dwelling place of Torah and our YHWH. He prepared the way for our entry into the secret place of the Most High by entering the Holy of Holies,splitting the dividing wall that stood between us and YHWH‘s presence forever. Then He became the first fruits of entering the Kingdom of Heaven to be with the Abba Father, and prepared the way for us to do the same. He sat down at YHWH‘s right hand as The Sar Shalom. He was most
assuredly the most important dove ever born.
Luke 3: 21 While all the people were being immersed, Yahshua too was immersed. As he was praying, heaven was opened; 22the Ruach HaKodesh came down on him in physical form like a dove; and a voice came from heaven, "You are my Son, whom I love; I am well pleased with you."
John 1:32 Then Yochanan gave this testimony: "I saw the Spirit coming down from heaven like a dove, and remaining on him. 33 I myself did not know who he was, but the one who sent me to immerse in water said to me, `The one on whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining, this is the one who immerses in the Ruach HaKodesh.' 34 And I have seen and borne witness that this is the Son of YHWH."
The Hovering Dove
"In the beginning YHWH created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of YHWH moved upon the face of the waters." - Genesis 1:1-2
The first two verses in Genesis are about the creation of life by YHWH, The Father of all life. The One without Whom "was not anything made that was made", Yahshua haMasiach, The Word, is also there (John 1:1-3) as confirmed in John. Also revealed at this "Speaking intoexistence‖ The Ruach HaKodesh; the One who is 'moving' upon the face of the waters
. He is the spirit of YHWH
Yahshua is the Son of YHWH and they three are echad (one).
The Ruach HaKodesh also prepared the way for the Torah (Yahshua is the Word; John 1) to enter the hearts of men and be written there.
John is also filled by the Ruach Ha Kodesh in the womb because of the shalom sent by Mary the mother of Yahshua. The greeting sent by Mary prepared the way.
It was prophesied by Gabriel that John would be filled with the Holy Spirit from the womb. Now how did this come to pass, that a baby in the womb could receive the Ruach HaKodesh?
Mary the mother of Yahshua prepared the way for John the Baptist. Let us look and see how!
In the sixth month, the angel Gavri'el (Gabriel) was sent by YHWH to a city in the Galil (Galilee) called Natzeret (Nazareth), 27 to a virgin engaged to a man named Yosef (Joseph), of the house of David; the virgin's name was Miryam (Mary).28 Approaching her, the angel said, "Shalom, favored lady! YHWH is with you!" 29 She was deeply troubled by his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 The angel said to her, "Don't be afraid, Miryam, for you have found favor with YHWH. 31 Look! You will become pregnant, you will give birth to a son, and you are to name him Yahshua. 32 He will be great, he will be called Son of Ha`Elyon (The Most High) .YHWH, will give him the throne of his forefather David; 33 and he will rule the House of Ya`akov (Jacob) forever -- there will be no end to his Kingdom." 34 "How can this be," asked Miryam of the angel, "since I am a virgin?" 35 The angel answered her, "The Ruach HaKodesh will come over you, the power of Ha`Elyon will cover you. Therefore the holy child born to you will be called the Son of YHWH. 36 "You have a relative, Elisheva, who is an old woman; and everyone says she is barren. But she has conceived a son and is six months pregnant! 37 For with YHWH, nothing is impossible." 38 Miryam said, "I am the servant of YHWH; may it happen to me as you have said." Then the angel left her. 39 Without delay, Miryam set out and hurried to the town in the hill country of Y'hudah 40 where Z'kharyah lived, entered his house
and greeted Elisheva. 41 When Elisheva heard Miryam's greeting, the baby in her womb stirred. Elisheva was filled with the Ruach HaKodesh42 and spoke up in a loud voice, "How blessed are you among women! And how blessed is the child in your womb! 43 "But who am I, that the mother of my YHWH should come to me? 44 For as soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy! 45 Indeed you are blessed, because you have trusted that the promise YHWH has made to you will be fulfilled." 46 Then Miryam said, "My soul magnifiesYHWH; 47 and my spirit rejoices in YHWH, my Savior, 48 who has taken notice of his servant-girl in her humble position. For -- imagine it! -- from now on, all generations will call me blessed! 49 "The Mighty One has done great things for me! Indeed, his name is holy; 50 and
in every generation he has mercy on those who fear him. 51 "He has performed mighty deeds with his arm, routed the secretly proud, 52 brought down rulers from their thrones, raised up the humble, 53 filled the hungry with good things, but sent the rich away empty. 54 "He has taken the part of his servant Isra'el, mindful of the mercy 55 which he promised to our fathers, to Avraham and his seed
The angel Gabriel sent shalom to Mary and prepared the way for the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit)to hover over Mary so the power of the Most High could cover her. Verse 28 says ―the angel said, "Shalom, favored lady! YHWH is with you!‖ So He sent shalom and then proclaimed the Kingdom… YHWH is with you. Isn‘t this the same kingdom
principle that Yahshua taught the disciples?
So the Ruach HaKodesh is the original dove of shalom and prepares the way for shalom.
All of Heaven seems to operate in this preparation protocol of entry.
The truth of YHWH is simple yet inexplicably profound.
Gabriel then declared that Mary would bring forth the Son of The Most High andHis Kingdom would never end
! Proclaiming the Kingdom is the second thing Yahshua
taught the 12 disciples and the 70. So it must be also for us to do, proclaim His Kingdom in all the earth.
Then in verse 37 Miriam (Mary) says―let it be so as you have said. She received the Shalom sent by Gabriel and his shalom remained with her. Miriam then went without delay to Zechariah‘s house.
As she entered the house, she sent SHALOM and the baby John was filled with the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) thus fulfilling the prophecy given by Gabriel.
44 For as soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy! 45 Indeed you are blessed, because you have trusted that the promise YHWH has made to you will be fulfilled."
Consider this: we must continue in the way that Yahshua walked on earth and taught the disciples to walk and sendshalom before us. Don‘t you think that when in the book of
Acts they broke bread daily in the homes, and then daily many were added to the Kingdom, that they first sent shalom into those homes?
YHWH the Dove
The Hebrew word translated as 'moved' in verse two is"rachaph", meaning "to hover; as a bird hovering and brooding over it's young". This same word, "rachaph", is used in Deuteronomy 32:9-12, which describes YHWH‘s
leading the Children of Israel out of Egyptian bondage with this beautiful imagery:
V9) butY W ‟ sh e w s his own peop e, Y ' kov (Jacob) his allotted heritage. 10 "He found his people in desert country, in a howling, wasted wilderness. He protected him and cared for him, guarded him like the pupil of his eye, 11 like an eagle that stirs up her nest, hovers (rachaph)over her young, spreads out her wings, takes them and carries them as she flies. 12 "YHWH alone led his people;
Is i h 31 4…”o wi Y W of oss come down to fight on Mount Tziyon, and on the hill of it. 5 As birds hovering (rachaph), so will YHWH of Hosts protect Yerushalayim; he will protect and deliver [it], he will pass over and preserve it. 6 Turn you to him from whom you have deeply revolted, children of Yisra'el. 7 For in that day they shall cast away every man his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which you own h nds h ve m de o you fo sin.”YHWH and His Ruach HaKodesh hover (rachaph) still
, just as they did at creation, the flood, coming out of Egypt, the day of Pentecost and many other places. He hovers over you and He covers you with His wings; protecting and nurturing you with His comfort and love. He is The One who comforts, guides, and leads you into all truth. He is The One who bears witness that you are The Father's.
You who live in the shelter of 'Elyon, whospend your nights in the shadow of Shaddai, 2 who say to YHWH, "My refuge! My fortress! My Elohim, in whom I trust!" 3 he will rescue you from the trap of the hunter and from the plague of calamities; 4 he will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his truth is a shield and protection. 5 You will not fear the terrors of night or the arrow that flies by day, 6 or the plague that roams in the dark, or the scourge that wreaks havoc at noon. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand; but it won't come near you.
The dove was a witness about who Yahshua was at His baptism in the river Jordan. After the dove descended and hovered (rachaph) over Yahshua, then the Father declared that:
“This is my beloved Son in whom I Am well pleased.”
I believe it was YHWH who hovered over Yahshua as He did over the children of Israel. After all He is the one who spoke and declared Yahshua was His beloved son.
9 tells us who the sons of YHWH are:
"How blessed are those who make shalom! for they will be called the sons of YHWH.
In Numbers 6 it shows that when the name of YHWH is placed upon us, it is the dove of shalom preparing the way for YHWH to be written upon us and make us His sons. The last word in the blessing spoken by the priest is Shalom!
The covenant has been established and now YHWH will always be there; hovering and watching over you; taking care of you as a dove, like a mother watching over the young in her nest.
The―feminine‖symbol of the dove was incorporated into Judaism to represent the spirit of Elohim (the word for ―spirit,‖R
uach, is a feminine word in Hebrew as well).
It has been likened to the hovering of YHWH‘s spirit inGenesis 1:2 as the hovering of a dove. Indeed, this same
“hovering” language is used to describe YHWH’s spirit in the Dead Sea Scrolls as well as the New Testament (Brit Hadasha).
But these are not the only allusions to a dove in the Hebrew Bible. Here are some other examples written in Torah. There are other examples in Torah and you will soon recognize this established protocol in these stories also.
The best-known example comes from the story of Genesis 6-9 about the flood. In Genesis 8:8-12, after the ark landed on the mountains of Ararat, Noah sent out a dove three times to see how far the flood waters had receded.
Thefirst time Noah sent the dove; it found nothing and returned to the ark. Shalom did not remain
. (First time/Yahshua returned to the Abba after hovering over the
waters to bring life to the earth). Thesecond time the dove was sent out it returned to Noah, it did not remain, but brought an olive leaf, so Noah could see that shalom had returned with the anointing and life (second time/Yahshua came and brought the anointing and life). The third time the dove was sent out it remained in the earth, and Noah knew that shalom had remained in the earth
and it was safe to go forth from the ark. This is symbolic of the day when shalom remains in the earth and prophesies of the day that Yahshua will return to remain in the Earth for a millennial reign of shalom in which the sons of shalom will rule and reign with Him. HalleluYah!
it is revealed as a basic principal in Torah that we send shalom before us into the house before we enter.
Yahshua was teaching the disciples an age old established principle that He himself helped to establish at creation. The hovering spirit is identified as the Spirit of YHWH hovering over the water. That would be the Ruach HaKodesh and represents the dove.
YHWH sent Shalom into the Earth before He spoke to the creation to come forth.
In the beginning YHWH created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was unformed and void, darkness was on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of YHWH hovered over the surface of the water
Chaos ruled over the Earth and YHWH sent the hovering dove of shalom before Himself to destroy the chaos so that His Kingdom could be established. Now if YHWH has to send shalom to establish His Kingdom here on earth and to prepare the way of His son to enter earth and establish YHWH‘s Kingdom here on earth, shouldn‘t we be doing the same? Yahshua told the disciples to do so as well, shouldn‘t
we be obedient to the son of YHWH? Yahshua said He only did what He saw His Father do and said only what the Father said. Hello???
Isaiah says He has declared the end from the beginning :
Barnes' Notes on the Bible say that YHWH:
―Declaring the end from the beginning- Foretelling accurately the course of future events. This is an argument to which YHWH often appeals in proof that he is the only true Elohim (see Isaiah 41:22-23; Isaiah 43:12; Isaiah 44:26).‖
“y counse sh s nd - My purpose, my design, my will.
The phrase 'shall stand' means that it shall be stable,
settled, fixed, established.‖Remain)
YHWH‘s purpose and design stands, His will shall not be moved or stopped. Come on children of the Most High, can‘t you see that shalom on the earth began with sending shalom before you enter the house. If we can just go back to the beginning we can destroy the authority that has established the decayed, rotted, chaotic darkness that takes ground every day. It place its ugly feet on every continent and its feet are firmly placed in Jerusalem. The chants of the koran are heard night and day there. Come let‘s take it back, go
back to the beginning, and pray for the shalom of Jerusalem! Send shalom to Jerusalem and the whole earth, to destroy chaos, proclaim His Kingdom in the Holy name, so His name can be written upon His people and then His Kingdom of shalom will come.
In Noah‘s generation the earth had returned to its former
state of corruption. YHWH says the earth is full of chaos so it must be destroyed by water. So like in Genesis YHWH is going back to the water covering the earth. Well here is another thing that represents the Ruach HaKodesh, water. It also represents the Word of YHWH and the water of the washing of the Word. In John, it represents the Holy Spirit and it was used to baptize people to wash away sins. Yahshua tells the woman at the well that if anyone drinks of the water he gives, it will flow out of them like rivers of living water, speaking of the filling of the Ruach HaKodesh.
Later, at the feast of tabernacles, Yahshua calls himself the rock in the wilderness, and if anyone thirsts, they should come to him. Water came out of the rock in Exodus, just like the Holy Spirit comes to us through a relationship with Yahshua.
Genesis 7:20And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters. 19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered. 20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail
; and the mountains were covered. 21 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every
creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man: 22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died . 23 Andevery living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark. 24 And the waters prevailed
upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.
The waters prevail to destroy everything corrupt on the earth, as Yahshua will prevail over sin and corruption and destroy chaos when He returns. In the Bible Jacob prevails with YHWH . So when Jacob was in his nineties as a token of blessing YHWH changed his name to Israel.
Prevailin Hebrew is also part of Israel’s name
Three common translations of the name Israel are: Prince of YHWH, Champion of YHWH, and YHWH will prevail
. All are correct facets of the meaning. In Hebrew it is spelled with 2 letters: Aleph, Lamed. These are also the last 2 letters of the name Israel spelled in Hebrew, which has 5 letters altogether: Yod, shin, resh, aleph, and lamed. In Hebrew it is pronounced Yis-ra-el`.
Shin, resh spells sahr in Hebrew, meaning prince, champion, and officer. The yod in front of a verb stem
signifies future tense. So you might translate Israel as: He (and figuratively the people) will be a prince and champion and officer of YHWH.
Depending on context the translation, "YHWH will prevail," is also literal. (Courtesy www.blurtit.com)
1. to be widespread or current;
2. to appear or occur as themore important
or frequent feature or element; predominate
3.to be or prove superior in strength, power, or influence
(usually fol. by over): They prevailed over their enemies in the battle.
to succeed; become dominant; win out
The attributes of Israelare the same as YHWH‘s attributes. The waters prevailed over the chaos as our prayers that are continued without ceasing for shalom will cover the earth and prevail over the earth. YHWH said He would never destroy the earth with water again. Natural water will not prevail over the chaos on earth but the water of the word of YHWH will prevail just like in Genesis 1.But Israel‘s name the name of Jacob means YHWH will prevail. In us, YHWH‘s Israel, His spirit can prevail if we will do as in the
beginning and speak shalom over the earth. The waters prevailed over the mountains or high places (idols, pride) more than 22 feet. Hebrew has 22 letters; the complete word of YHWH will cover the earth destroying the high places. Isaiah 57 says it was pride and rebellion that made YHWH angry with them, these are high places, but YHWH destroys everything that stands in the way of His people (levels the
mountains and the high places) with the perfect words of shalom shalom. Notice the water prevailed 4 times in this scripture. YHWH had a point to make here, 4 is completion, and it was finished. Yahshua said these words when he took His last breath and conquered sin.
It is finished!
Genesis 8:6 Noah sent out the raven that flew back and forth until the water dried up. This reflects Isaiah 57 when it says
“But the wicked are like the troubled sea; for it can't rest, and its waters cast up mire and dirt. 21 There is no shalom, says YHWH, for the wicked.
James 1:5 But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of YHWH, who gives to all liberally and without reproach; and it will be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, without any doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven by the wind and tossed. 7 For let that man not think that he will receive anything from YHWH. 8 He is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
There is no shalom for the wicked, who are the wicked? The one who lacks wisdom, have asked of YHWH and doubted Him, have no faith as they are tossed to and for like the waters that covered the earth, they are driven by the wind with doubt and unbelief, and are double minded and unstable= full of chaos. If they be full of chaos, there is no shalom in them, thus they cannot be the sons of YHWH.
The raven is an unclean animal and therefore represents the wicked.
Then in verse 8 Noah sends out the dove. But the dove finds no place for her feet to rest (she does not remain because there is no shalom there) so she returns. Noah had sent shalom before him into the earth, when the shalom dove returned to him, he knew he could not enter that house as his shalom had returned to him. Noah knew the basic principle and implemented it in his life just like the disciples
of Yahshua. Then Noah sent shalom again after 7 more days (7 is the number of completion and perfection) and this time the dove returns with the olive leaf which symbolizes anointing and has become a worldwide symbol for peace.Again the oil from the olive leaf represents the Ruach and the dove represents the Ruach.(peace peace) The image of a dove holding an olive branch continues to be a symbol of peace (shalom) to this day, while the dove represents the Holy Spirit, and the anointing oil comes from the Ruach HaKodesh and is the oil of joy. Lastly Noah sent out the dove again after 7 days and he knew he could enter the house (earth) when shalom (the dove) remained
and did not return to him on the third time sent. Now he can enter the house.
Then the covenant promise to never destroy the earth again by water is established in the rainbow being placed in the sky. YHWH will not destroy the earth with water again. Yahshua said we had to be born of the water and of the spirit in John 3:
Yahshua answered, "Most assuredly I tell you, unless one is born of water and spirit, he can't enter into the kingdom of God!6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh. That which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Don't marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born anew.' 8 The wind blows where it wants to, and you hear its sound, but don't know where it comes from and where it is going. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit."
First we are baptized in water but next we were baptized in the Ruach HaKodesh. First the earth is born of water then of the spirit so that it may enter into the Kingdom.
Abraham the dove
The Hebrew name Abraham may very well be the most extraordinary name ever constructed.
Excerpt from Meaning and etymology of Bible Names
Abraham is the famous arch-father of all believers (Romans 4:11, Galatians 3:7). YHWH cuts the covenant with Abraham of whom Yahshua is the fulfillment (Genesis 15, Galatians 3:7, 16, 29).
The name means Flight 'n Noise, or Fly They Will,with at the heart of it the letter heh to claim Abraham as Hebrew arch father and forming the verb (to cut a covenant) which states the reason for the name Abraham.
The Abarim Publications Editorial Team looked on dozens of web sites and countless hard-copies and all but a few merrily report that the name Abraham comes from the Hebrew words ab and hamon and means Father Of A Multitude. That these two words contain no R seems not to bother anyone.
The verbal explanation of Genesis 17:5 is hard to trace etymologically, as the new element (rhm) does not exist in Hebrew. Perhaps YHWH is suggesting that something unique is happening to Abram. There are some other words in Hebrew that are used only once, and are often highly significant.
The phrase "father (of) many nations" reads (ab-hamon-goyim), and that doesn't sound like "Abraham" at all (as mentioned,no R).
Whatever the name Abraham may mean, it certainly is not a compound of ab and hamon and certainly does not mean Father Of A Multitude. The Jewish Encyclopedia merrily
states that "The form 'Abraham' yields no sense in Hebrew," but that displays boldness of the other side of the spectrum.The change from Abram to Abraham is accompanied by the initiation of the covenant of which the Mashiach is the final result. It's impossible to defend that YHWH would link a sign of no sense to an event that profound.
Psalms:34:6 I said, "Oh that I had wings like a dove! Then I would fly away, and be at rest.
Genesis 13:14 And YHWH said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: 15 For all the land which thou seest , to thee will I give it , and to thy seed forever. 16 And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered. 17 Arise,walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee. 18 Then Abram removed his tent, and came and dwelt in the plain of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar untoYHWH.
Abram‘s name is changed to“fly they will’ or “flight n noise‖when YHWH gives hi
m the name of Abraham. Then YHWH tells Abraham to look to the four directions and then apply his feet to the land and it will be his, wherever his feet go. This looks like another dove is flying over the land (Hovering) and shalom on the feet of Abraham is taking the land for YHWH. The noise could be the proclamation of the name and the Kingdom while in flight. The land was to belong to Abraham and his descendants as an eternal covenant as his name implied a covenant was cut. YHWH did cut a covenant with Abraham but secured it by himself and His own name.
The sons of Abraham may be going to hover over theearth as doves, ―Fly they will‖ bringing shalom, and
destroying the authority that establishes chaos. Thus
restoring the Promised Land to the rightful owners, those in covenant with YHWH and walking in obedience to His teachings in Torah.
Cristobal Coloñ and the Dove
First let us look and see if there are any doves that aren‘t
in the Bible, but do have a place in the history of our nation, which was established on freedom of worship and religion.
I realize that Christopher Columbus wasn‘t the first guy tocome to America; however he did prepare the way for the Jews to come to America and escape the Spanish inquisition and expulsion of the Jews from Spain. Could it be that he was a son of Abraham who was going to ―fly they will‘ to prepare the way for YHWH‘s people in another exodus to
America was the place that YHWH had prepared for the children of Abraham to be free to serve YHWH for a very long time. Things are changing in these last days but let us not forget how it was for many decades. America has been a place of refuge, and saved many Jews from the death camps, holocaust, and persecution in Europe and around the world.
Christopher Columbus‘ actual name was
Cristobal Coloñ. The Portuguese changed his name, maybe to hide his identity as a Jew named Cristobal Coloñ. Does that last name look familiar to you? It just so happens that, that it is my last name. My husband is a descendant of Cristobal Coloñ who his dad says was a Jew, but the point I want to get to is this: the name Coloñ means DOVE. I weep as I write this to you because I believe it is the only reason that YHWH gave me this important message to bring to His children. I am not worthy to have been given such an important revelation. But my name is DOVE (Coloñ), my favorite word is shalom, and YHWH is getting ready to come
here to show Himself mightily to you. The dove has been sent to open the hearts of any shalom seekers out there so shalom can remain with you. This is so you can receive the gospel of shalom and implement it in your walk with Yahshua to prepare the way for Him to go into the entire world, so repentance will come.
May Yahushua turn your feet into the paths of shalom today. Amen
Jonah the Dove
Here is a dove that isn‘t quite as obvious, it is Jonah. The
name Jonah (Yonah) means DOVE. YHWH sent the dove into Nineveh to prepare the way for repentance and salvation to follow him, much like John the Baptist. Remember how Yahshua always sent the disciples into the places where He himself was about to go? Here is a thought for you to ponder what Yahshua said in Matt.16:2
He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. 3 And in the morning, it will be foul weather today: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times? 4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it,but the sign of the prophet Jonas.”
Yahshua had already established the fact in Matt. chapter 12 that he would be in the earth for 3 days and nights like Jonah was in the belly of the whale for 3 days and nights. But now in chapter 16 he says this is the only sign that will be given in the end time. Maybe the sign is sending shalom before us proclaiming the Kingdom and name of YHWH and preparing the way for Yahshua to show up and repentance to follow unto righteousness. Remember that it was the shalom offering that brought the very presence of YHWH to come and eat with the priests and the ones who brought the
offering of peace and fellowship. They had prepared the way for His presence with shalom.
Now I want to tell you a strange story about my grandson who happens to be named Jonah. I have been so curious since he was born and the manner in which he was born as to what it all meant. Judge for yourself but it is interesting to say the least.
My daughter who already had grown children found out she was pregnant. She really thought she was getting pastthe baby stage and her life was so busy she couldn‘t imagine having a baby. She cried because she knew she would have to quit her job as she is an awesome and dedicated mother who won‘t go to work until the children are in school. Well
she had one in college and another in middle school and another out of school and working. The financial crunch this would put on her family was unbelievable but it was a price she would gladly pay because she knew it was important for the baby to have its Momma home.
My daughter gained so much water weight during her pregnancy that in the last term, the doctors were so concerned, because of it and her age, they ran tests on her to see if everything was ok. The baby was at high risk to be in the excess fluid in her body. It could be a sign of many possible physical problems for baby Jonah and his Momma. Tests came back good, so we waited for him to be born. My daughter got so huge with fluid and was just miserable; shecouldn‘t wait to have him be born so she could have some relief.‖All she could do is just sit on the couch and be miserable so she started saying that ―Jonah didn’t want to come out of his whale”. This is how she felt, like a whale
Then it was her due date and she went to the doctor that day for her appointment. They ran tests on her and the fluid level was so dangerously high that they sent her to the hospital for an emergency C-section. The family barely made it to the hospital before they took her to surgery.
When the doctors cut her open, they said that a stream of water shot 4 feet in the air. Some of the fluid got on the anesthesiologist. The whole baby ward, doctors and nurses, were recounting the incredible story of how this water came forth from my daughters belly. They said it had never happened like that before and hoped that we had gotten it on tape. I told my daughter that that is what she got for naming him Jonah; he would have to be vomited out of the whale.
Jonah in the Bible was vomited out of rebellion to bring shalom and repentance to Nineveh where YHWH was about to visit with judgment had they not repented.Interesting……………could it be that this message being
released to us in these last days is the sign of Jonah?
Are we to begin to send shalom into all of the places Yahshua is about to go so there will be repentance and healing?
Could it be possible that my grandson‘s birth was yet
another sign to me it was time to write the book?
Here is another thing to ponder….My name is dove and my grandsons name is dove, that is dove, dove…. or shalom shalom…. These are YHWH‘s perfect words to heal.
The dove is the emblem of shalom and the Ruach HaKodesh. The name of the Holy Spirit, the Ruach HaKodesh, means The Wind or breath of Holiness. The Ruach is the Wind of Holiness that the wings of the dove are supported by so he may hover over us and recreate our lives into something beautiful. He comes to write Torah in ourhearts and YHWH‘s
name on us, so we can obey YHWH out of love for Him and His Son. The dove is the sign that shalom remains on the Son of YHWH, our Sar Shalom, and Prince of the Kingdom of Peace. When we see the dove remaining, we know that The Son of YHWH or one of His sons is in the house. The way has been prepared for Yahshua to be on His way to remain with His children, for wherever the dove goes Yahshua will follow. Then there will
be perfect peace, shalom shalom, to those nearby and those far off, and YHWH will heal them. His Holy name will be written and established on, and in, His forever children, forever.
The Shalom Kingdom
Romans 14:17 for the kingdom of YHWH is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, shalom, and joy in the Ruach HaKodesh. 18 For he who serves Mashiach in these things is acceptable to YHWH and approved by men. 19 So then, let us follow after things which make for shalom, and things whereby we may build one another up.
Righteousness always proceeds shalom
The burnt offering had to be without blemish to be acceptable to YHWH. We also must be without spot and wrinkle to be accepted by YHWH. As the burnt and the meal offering bring righteousness by the blood of the sacrifice and fellowship with the bread of life, then we may proceed to enter into shalom where there is joy in the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit). The meal offering in Leviticus made prepared the way for the one who brought it to have a meal with the Father and to literally sit down and eat with Him. Then they could enter into the shalom offering and experience the joy of the Ruach HaKodesh and the glory of YHWH. It reallywasn‘t about eating
the food it was about His presence.
The shalom offering of Leviticus 3 was also referred to as the fellowship offering because that was the end result of their gift. When Yahshua shows up for the fellowship with His bride there is joy in the Ruach HaKodesh. This verse in Romans tells us what the Kingdom of Heaven is, and it is referring to the shadow picture in Leviticus
FOR THE KINGDOM OF YHWH IS……righteousness, shalom, and joy in the Ruach HaKodesh. So then, let us follow after things which make for shalom,
whereby we may build one another up. Now we can be acceptable to YHWH. That is my heart and I am sure it is yours also.
For he who serves Mashiach in these things is acceptable to YHWH and approved by men.
We must be seekers of shalom
…19 So then, let us follow after things which make for shalom.
Next the verse talks about the fact that we should build one another up. This is also a Kingdom principle that we build each other and His kingdom up. Remember what it says in
Isaiah 57? Verse 14 says ―
14Then he will say, "Keep building! Keep building! Clear the way! Remove everything blocking my people's path!" 15
For thus says the High, Exalted One who lives forever, whose name is Holy: "I live in the high and holy place but also with the broken and humble, in order to revive the spirit of the humble and revive the hearts of the broken ones.
This is another place where the shalom offering is referenced, the gospel or truth of shalom, and the building of the Kingdom of YHWH. It also says that Yahshua came and announced the good news of shalom to those far off and those nearby. This is referring to the passage in Isaiah 57.
17Also, when he came, he announced as Good News shalom to you far off and shalom to those nearby, b 18 news that through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. 19 So then, you are no longer foreigners and strangers. On the contrary, you are fellow-ci izens wi hY W ‟ peop e nd mem e s of Y W 's family. 20 You have been built on the foundation of the emissaries and the prophets, with the cornerstone being Yahshua the Mashiach himself. 21
In union with him the whole building is held together, and it is growing
into a holy temple in union with Yahshua.22 Yes, in union with him, you yourselves are being built together into a spiritual dwelling-place for YHWH!
Yahshua announced the good news of shalom to those far off and nearby which was proclaiming the Kingdom and preparing the way for its physical manifestation here on earth in the manifestation of the Holy Spirit. He said that through Him we have access to the Father as He was the meal offering, and we were to come in one spirit which was making shalom with all men before approaching the Father. Because of Yahshua the door was opened for everyone to be able to approach the Father. We have been adopted by the King of the Universe.
Now we are being built into a Holy habitation for YHWH to have eternal fellowship and shalom with. But we must come by the correct protocol that brings us into union with Yahshua through the burnt offering of laying down our lives, the meal offering of fellowship with the bread of life and the shalom offering of fellowship with YHWH joy in the Ruach and members of His family and His Kingdom. We have become a spiritual dwelling place for YHWH.
So then let us follow after things that make for shalom and
that build YHWH‘s Kingdom.
Romans 12:1Therefore I beg you, brothers, by the mercies of YHWH, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to YHWH, which is your spiritual service. 2 Don't be fashioned according to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of YHWH.
YHWH‟ Full Armor
Ephesians 6:14 Stand therefore, having the utility belt oftruth buckled around your waist, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having fitted your feet with the preparation of the Good News of shalom;
16 above all, taking up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of YHWH; 18 with all prayer and requests, praying at all times in the Spirit, and being watchful to this end in all perseverance and requests for all the holy ones: 19 On my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in opening my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the Good News. HNV
Even Ephesians 6 and the full armor reflect the shalom offering and demonstrates the fact that we can be strong in YHWH when we follow after things that make for shalom. In fact that is the very shoes we are to wear to defeat the enemy. There is so much to say about the full armor but we will leave that for a future adventure.
Unity in Shalom.
Unity is the result of encouraging each other daily and building one another up. It is also following after the things that make for shalom and having shalom with all men. Go the way of shalom is just one more catch phrase used in the Word. Remember you have to be at shalom with all men to be in His presence? Having put on this belt of truth let us talk ab
out the things that block the path of YHWH‘s people.
When shalom goes forth and‗destroys the authority that establishes chaos‘,
then unity can remain. It is a fruit of the Kingdom to be in unity with YHWH and with the brothers and sisters in the faith.
Ephesians 4:1….w k wo hi y of he c ing wi h which you we e called, 2 with all lowliness and humility, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love; 3 being eager to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of shalom. 4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as you also were called in one hope of your calling; 5 one YHWH, one faith, one immersion, 6 one YHWH and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in us all.
The body of Mashiach seems to be lacking unity and it breaks my heart and the heart of YHWH. There are divisions and schisms and everything else that could keep the kingdom from being built. The Word says that Israel is not to be divided and that anyone who attempts to do so will fall under a curse. We must not divide the body by name, preference, doctrine, or anything else that would tear down rather than build up. We must utilize this teaching to carry the gospel of shalom so that The Prince of Shalom can show up to destroy this authority of chaos in our communities. Notice what James says is bringing this disharmony.
James 3: 16 For where there are jealousy and selfish ambition, there will be disharmony and every foul practice.
Let‘s send shalom and
prepare the way so we can welcome Yahshua to show up and bring us unity, love, and peace that passes all understanding.
Ephesians 2:12 at that time you had no Mashiach. You were estranged from the national life of Isra'el. You were foreigners to the coven n s em odying Y W ‟ p omise. You we e in his wo d without hope and without YHWH. 13 But now, you who were once far off have been brought near through the shedding of the Mashiach‟ blood. 14 For he himself is our shalom - he has made us both one and has broken down the m'chitzah 9 (middle wall) which divided us.
Yahshua Himself is our shalom that has the binding power that brings unity and destructive power to break down walls
that stand between us and our fellow citizens and between us and YHWH. The dividing wall (M‘chitzah) refers to the wall of hostility which separated Jews and Gentiles for so long. It also refers, metaphorically, to the fence which separated the inner part of the Temple, where only the Jews could enter, from the Court of the Gentiles. Today the M‘chitzah is the divider in a synagogue which makes separate areas for women and men to pray. Let‘s get rid of the division and walk in oneness, we may now enter into the Holy place as one people, one body, and one spirit in our Mashiach. YHWH has removed everything that would be in the way of His children by the blood of Yahshua‘s sacrifice
and by His shalom that passes all understanding.
Ephesians 2:12 at that time had no Messiah. You were estranged from the national life of Isra'el. You were foreigners to the covenants embodying YHWH's promise. You were in this world without hope and without YHWH. 13 But now, you who were once far off have been brought near through the shedding of the Mashiach's blood. 14 For he himself is our shalom - he has made us both one and has broken down the m'chitzah which divided us.
Isaiah 57: 18 I have seen their ways, and I will heal them; I will lead them and give comfort to them and to those who mourn for them 19 I will create the right words: 'Shalom shalom to those far off and to those nearby!' says YHWH; 'I will heal them!'"
Ephesi ns 2 15…He did this in order to create in union with himself from the two groups a single new humanity and thus make shalom, 16 and in order to reconcile to YHWH both in a single body by being executed on a stake as a criminal and thus in himself killing that enmity. 17 Also, when he came, he announced as Good News shalom to you far off and shalom to those nearby, b 18 news that through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. 19 So then, you are no longer foreigners and strangers. On the contrary, you are fellow-ci izens wi h Y W ‟ peop e nd members of YHWH's family. 20 You have been built on the foundation of the emissaries and the prophets, with the cornerstone being Yahshua the Mashiach himself. 21
with him the whole building is held together, and it is growing into a holy temple in union with YHWH.22 Yes, in union with him, you yourselves are being built together into a spiritual dwelling-place for YHWH!
Isaiah 57:13 But whoever takes refuge in me will possess the land and inherit my holy mountain." 14 Then he will say, "Keep building! Keep building! Clear the way! Remove everything blocking my people's path!" 15 For thus says the High, Exalted One who lives forever, whose name is Holy: "I live in the high and holy place but also with the broken and humble, in order to revive the spirit of the humble and revive the hearts of the broken ones.
Ephesians 4:2 with all lowliness and humility, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love; 3 being eager to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of shalom.
Matthew 22:and one of them who was a Torah expert asked a sh‟i h question about the commands in Torah) to trap him: 36 "Rabbi, which of the mitzvoth (commands) in the Torah is the most important?" 37 He told him, "`You are to love YHWH your Elohim with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.' 38 This is the greatest and most important mitzvah. 39 And a second is similar to it, `You are to love your neighbor as yourself.' 40 All of the Torah and the Prophets are dependent on these two mitzvoth (commands)."CJB
The Kingdom of shalom is a place of unity and of building the body into a spiritual dwelling place for YHWH. Not tearing it down. Keep building, keep building, send shalom shalom and clear everything blocking my peoples path to me so they can be a Holy dwelling place for the High, Exalted One who lives forever, whose name is Holy.
This place of unity is with all lowliness and humility, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love; being eager to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of shalom
YHWH says: ―
I live in the high and holy place but also with the broken and humble, in order to revive the spirit of the humble and revive the hearts of the broken ones.
Please notice how Isaiah 57 and Ephesians 2 and 4 blend so beautifully. If we are to walk in the Kingdom of shalom in the bond of unity we must send forth this blessing. We must also realize the power of the tongue to landscape our lives with blessings and life….
or curse it with death.
In verse17 of Isaiah 57 it says: It was because of their flagrant greed that I was angry and struck them; I hid myself and was angry, but they continued on their own rebellious way. 18 I have seen their ways, and I will heal them; I will lead them and give comfort to them and to those who mourn for them 19 I will create the right words: 'Shalom shalom
to those far off and to those nearby!' says YHWH; 'I will heal them!'"
In this passage YHWH is angry with His children because of their greed and rebellion and He has hidden himself from them. But He decides if He can get rid of the chaos in their thinking that they can be healed becauseHis mercy endures forever. He sends comfort to them but notice also to those who mourn for them. If you have prayed for the lost and had sorrow for their souls, then you will receive the same comfort that the lost will receive when YHWH comes to heal with Shalom shalom. You notice also that He doesn‘t
just send one blessing of shalom but He sends two. It is double shalom which is the peace that passes all understanding that Yahshua left for us, our Prince of Shalom.
One Shalom is for their healing and one for yours.
Also if you send shalom into the house, then if a shalom seeker is there your shalom will remain with them. But there is still another shalom which will return or remain with you so you are never without peace. That is the Prince of Shalom
and He came and left us His very own shalom and then returned to the Father. You could say the Father sent His shalom Yahshua into the earth and He remained with some of us and He also returned to the Father. Perfect Shalom is double shalom and there is only one who was perfect. Now we with who shalom has remained must send shalom to others so He may remain with them also, written in their hearts as the Living Torah.
He gives abundantly above all we can ask or think.
The Full Armor of YHWH‟ double shalom
Ephesians 6:14 Stand therefore, having the utility belt oftruth buckled around your waist, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having fitted your feet with the preparation of the Good News of shalom;
16 above all, taking up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of YHWH; 18 with all prayer and requests, praying at all times in the Spirit, and being watchful to this end in all perseverance and requests for all the holy ones: 19 On my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in opening my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the Good News. HNV
Even Ephesians 6 and the full armor reflect the shalom offering and demonstrates the fact that we can be strong in YHWH when we follow after things that make for shalom. In fact that is the very shoes we are to wear to defeat the enemy.
Open the gates, That the righteous nation which keeps the truth may enter in. 3 You will keep him in perfect peace (shalom
shalom), Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.
4 Trust in YHWH forever, in Yah, YHWH is a rock of ages.
The original words said shalom shalom , which is perfect peace, double shalom or peace peace, thus: perfect peace.
Your trust in YHWH and His Son activates Shalom in your life and fixing your mind on Him makes double shalom (shalom shalom). In Hebrew this is perfect peace because perfection is rendered the same as shalom.
Interesting that in the above passage of Isaiah 26 it speaks about YHWH being our everlasting strength and then lists the full armor in Ephesians 6.
1) Your mind stayed upon YHWH is the helmet of salvation
2) The truth of a righteous nation = the belt of truth
3) Then the breastplate of righteousness.
An interesting note here is the fruit of shalom is righteousness.
4) The Prince of Peace is the righteous one and His Torah must be written in our heart.
5) He trusts in YHWH= the shield of faith.
6) And the shalom shalom (perfect peace) is the 2 shoes of the preparation of the gospel of shalom, shalom shalom.
Notice it says that the righteous nation that keeps the truth may enter in: the gates have been opened through their proper protocol of keeping the commands of YHWH and sending shalom shalom to remove anything in their path that stands between them and YHWH. Then the fully clothed and prepared ones may enter into His presence and receive His everlasting strength.
Ephesians 6 verse 13 says
“he efoe take unto you the whole amour of YHWH that ye may be e o wi hs nd in he evi d y, nd h ving done , o s nd.”Now you can stand, unwavering, completely safe in His fullness and shalom, all the enemies‘ fiery darts are
Two Shoes of Shalom
finally, my brethren, be strong in YHWH, and in the power of his might.11 Put on the whole armour of YHWH, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of YHWH, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand . 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of YHWH.
Notice 2 shoes, 2 shaloms’, perfect peace = double shalom.
And again in Isaiah 57 YHWH Himself declares double shalom to be
perfect words which He created. Perfect and shalom are one in the same. No wonder our Mashiach’s name is Sar Shalom our perfect peace and perfect prince. It is no surprise that all blessings, completeness, healing, and the Kingdom are in shalom as well as they are in Yahshua.
In Matt.10 He says: “1.
Yahshua called his twelve talmidim (disciples) and gave them authority to drive out unclean spirits and to heal every kind ofdisease and weakness.”CJB
The Kingdom of Shalom gives us authority to drive out unclean spirits and heal every kind of disease and weakness. This authority operates when we prepare the way for Yahshua to show up. We do this by sending the words of shalom before us and proclaiming the Kingdom of Heaven is near. This prepares the way for Messiah to heal, save and deliver in that house.
Here is what Yahshua commanded the disciples to do.
As you go,proclaim, `The Kingdom of Heaven is near,' 8. heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those afflicted with tzara'at (leprosy), expel demons.
These are the signs that are supposed to follow the childrenof YHWH. They haven‘t followed us because we haven‘t followed Him in obeying His instructions in proclaiming His Kingdom. If all of YHWH‘s people will just heed this word, I am wondering what will happen to planet earth. Would it bring the harvest we have waited for? Only one way to find out! It‘s up to you my friends, men of shalom. Shalom
Praying for the city
We are to pray for the city we live in to have shalom so that we may also have shalom even if we live in the midst of Babylon. Pray for the city to have shalom and you will have shalom. Double shalom here again.
4 hus s ys he Y W sev ‟ , he E ohim of Is e , o who we ecarried away captive, whom I have caused to be carried away from Jerusalem to Babylon: 5 Build houses and dwell in them; plant gardens and eat their fruit.
7And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray YHWH for it; for in its peace you will have peace.
If our city is at shalom then we are at shalom. One prayer says to pray that we be found AT shalom. That should be the city we dwell in. If we only complain about the place we live we cannot change it. Complaining only leaves you wandering in the wilderness for 40 years. No fun, but the shoes never wore out there. Wonder if they were putting on the full armor? LOL
Pray for Jerusalem!
Jerusalem (Yerushalayim) literally means―Head of shalom” and who is the Head of Shalom? The name really makes it clear why we should pray for shalom to come to Yerushalayim, Yah‘s Holy City. It is the apple of YHWH‘s eye
and the center of the Universe. That is where He is coming to dwell, so chaos wants above all things to prevent that from happening. It is a command that we pray for the Holy City.
I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go into the house of YHWH." 2Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem! 3 Jerusalem is built as a city that is compact together, 4 Where the tribes go up, The tribes of Yah, to the Testimony of Israel, to give thanks to the name of YHWH. 5 For thrones are set there for judgment, the thrones of the house of David. 6 Pray for the shalom of Jerusalem: "May they prosper who love you. 7 Shalom be within your walls, prosperity within your palaces." 8 For the sake of my brethren and companions, I will now say, "Shalom be within you." 9 Because of the house of the YHWH our Elohim I will seek your good.
I cannot stress this point enough, that when we pray for the shalom of Jerusalem, here it says that our feet have been standing within your gates.Which means that something supernatural happens when we do so
. Our feet that carry the truth of shalom stand within the gates and take ground from chaos so shalom can remain there.
When I went to Israel, we went to the Sea of Galilee and took a ride on the Jesus boat. I was just resting in the wondrous shalom I felt there and worshiping YHWH. The shalom is greater there than anywhere else on earth I have been told, and I do agree with that statement.
I was so caught up in His presence and peace that I asked Yahshua why it was so peaceful here. He said these words to me there on the Sea of Galilee
. He said ―It is
because when I said to these waters ‗halom be still‘ my shalom remained here. That is why you must pray for the shalom of Jerusalem because shalom has not yet remained there.‖Wow! Do you realize that when we pray for the Head of Shalom, our feet are within the gates and we must continue until shalom remains so we can prepare the way for Mashiach‘s return so He may enter the earth again? He will
then be Prince of Shalom over the earth and REMAIN HERE WITH US and we shall rule and reign with Him. He says the shalom makers will rule and reign with Him.
Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of YHWH.
By sending shalom and being a maker of shalom we are now called the very sons of YHWH. And if sons, then joint heirs to the kingdom of Shalom, with all of its benefits. HalleluYah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Isaiah 52 says
1 Awake, awake! Put on your strength, O Zion; Put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city! For the uncircumcised and the unclean shall no longer come to you. 2 Shake yourself from the dust, arise; Sit down, OJerusalem! Loose yourself from the bonds of your neck, O captive daughter of Zion! 3 For thus says YHWH: "You have sold yourselves for nothing, And you shall be redeemed without money." 4 For thus says YHWH our Elohim: "My people went down at first into Egypt to dwell there; then the Assyrian oppressed them without cause. 5 Now therefore, what have I here," says YHWH, "That My people are taken away for nothing? Those who u e ove hem m ke hem w i ,”s ys Y W , "And My n me is blasphemed continually every day. 6 Therefore My people shall know My name; Therefore they shall know in that day That I am He who speaks: 'Behold, it is I.' " 7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, Who proclaims shalom, Who brings glad tidings of good things, Who
proclaims salvation, Who says to Zion, "Your Elohim reigns!" 8 Your watchmen shall lift up their voices, With their voices they shall sing together; For they shall see eye to eye when YHWH brings back Zion. 9 Break forth into joy, sing together, You waste places of Jerusalem! For YHWH has comforted His people, He has redeemed Jerusalem. 10 YHWH has made bare His holy arm In the eyes of all the nations; And all the ends of the earth shall see The salvation of our Elohim.
You see what Isaiah 52 says!!!!His people will know His name because of the ones who have sent shalom and proclaimed the Kingdom and salvation. It is the watchmen who have lifted up their voices and sang together in one accord. It is these shalom makers who will see Yahshua eye to eye when He returns to Zion. The redemption of Jerusalem comes because they prepared the way for Yahshua‘s return with shalom.
And when shalom is established in Yerushalayim the head of Shalom, it will spread over the whole earth.
Verse 10 says;―
And all the ends of the earth shall see The salvation of our YHWH.” Praise His Holy name forever and ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Shalom Offering
Now I am going to show you what the shalom offering means and how it relates to all we have been talking about .
It is pretty interesting that shalom is used 400 times in the Bible. The number 400 in gematria is equal to the letter tav.
(excerpt from Yarah Ministries) The twenty-second and last letter of the Hebrew alphabet is
the Tav. Its literal meaning is "ownership" "covenant" "sign" "a mark" and "to join two things together".
In the ancient Hebrew picture letters the Tav was written as a cross, and later as an X. In the ancient Hebrew word for "sign"
we see that the SIGN is "the strong leader nailed to the cross
". It is this same word that is translated
in the Greek text of Luke 2:12 which reads:And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
The Hebrew word for religion is "DaT"
the ancient word picture tell us that this is the "door of the sign" or the "door of the cross
400 =covenant sign=sacrifice= shalom offering
The shalom offering is something I always wanted to lookinto, but I just couldn‘t understand it. Once I researched and
studied it I was blown away how it is echoed throughout the walk of Yahshua. He not only was our sin offering but was also our shalom offering.
The shalom offering was one of the most common sacrifices done, and for good reason. It was to restore fellowship with YHWH and have a meal with Him. It is pretty amazing that this offering made it possible for YHWH to eat dinner with the priests and their families. And it is even more amazing that Yahshua walked out all of the sacrifices in the Passover including the shalom offering so the true shalom offering was literally eating with the disciples.
Yahshua said―Behold I stand at the door, if any man answers then I and my Father will come and dine with him.‖
YHWH is basically a party waiting to happen. He cannot wait to have a meal, some fellowship, and party with us. Look
how many parties He has arranged throughout the year. This particular sacrifice, the shalom offering made it so the party never had to end, as often as we do it, we are to remember Him. This was a covenantal meal that restored our covenant with Him.
We can see this ancient tradition in many covenantal ceremonies in the Torah. We also see this fellowship meal in the great celebrations that occur at important redemptive events in the history of Israel.
At the exodus from Egypt they celebrated the Passover, and we still eat this meal to celebrate His faithfulness to the children of Israel and as a memorial. They celebrated Passover or a great fellowship offering after they entered the Promised Land in Joshua 5:10. And again when they renewed the covenant in Joshua 8:31, when Solomon built the temple in 1 Kings 8:33, and later when Hezekiah rededicated the temple 2 Chron. 30:21.
The story of Jacob tells about how Jacob flees from his father-in-law, Laban, with his wives and children. Laban pursues him, and when he catches up to Jacob they enact a covenant between each other that establishes the fact that neither will harm the other as they part ways. After they made this covenant, it was sealed with breaking bread:
Genesis 31:54, 55
Then Jacob offered a sacrifice on the mountain, and called his kinsmen to the meal; and they ate the meal and spent the night on the mountain. Early in the morning Laban arose, and kissed his sons and his daughters and blessed them. Then Laban departed and returned to his place.
In Exodus 24 after YHWH made a covenant or what was a ketubah (marriage contract) with the children of Israel and they accepted, then he had a meal with the elders to seal the covenant. There were 70 elders which is the number of the
nations, so YHWH was making sure that every nation would be represented in the covenant. It was sealed with a meal where they actually sat down and ate with YHWH. There is a pattern here of covenant and fellowship always being sealed with breaking bread. When two or more are gathered in His name, there Yahshua is in the midst of them. The meal offering represents Yahshua for He is the bread of life and he is the one who seals the covenant.
The 70 elders who fellowshipped with YHWH on the mountain, represented all of the nations of the earth in fellowship with YHWH. The way for them to fellowship with YHWH and dine with Him was prepared by burnt offering, the meal offering, and the shalom offering being done there. This is a reflection of where in the book of Luke, Yahshua takes the 70 disciples and instructs them to send shalom before them and prepare the way for where He was about to go himself. So what is being revealed here is that sending shalom prepares the way for Yahshua to come to all of the nations of the earth to restore fellowship with YHWH.
Exodus 24: 4
Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel: 10 And they saw the Elohim of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness. 11 And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw YHWH,and did eat and drink.”
To someone from the East, it would be very clear what this meal meant. YHWH had made a covenant of Shalom with this nation of 12 tribes, and before anything had been done to break it, they had perfect shalom and renewed fellowship with YHWH -- they could eat and drink in his presence. Not only could they be there, but they even could share a meal with YHWH the Creator of the Universe. This meal
represented the peaceful relationship they had established with YHWH and was a covenant that represented all the tribes of Israel and all of the nations of the earth. This was the beginning of Yah‘s answer to the break in fellowship that occurred in the Garden of Eden, when Adam and Eve sinned and they were cast out of YHWH‘s presence. His ultimate goal is to have fellowship with His people. Fellowship was lost when Adam and Eve ate of a different tree than the one prepared for them. Fellowship was lost eternally for Aaron‘s sons, Nadab and Abihu, when they offered strange fire before YHWH and they were consumed by YHWH‘ fire in Leviticus 10.They had seen and tasted of the Glory of YHWH here on the mountain with all of the elders Moses and Aaron, and still chose to eat from a different tree and offer up incense in the improper order or protocol of YHWH, as He had instructed them, much like Adam and Eve. They offered up worship and prayers without the proper protocol and instead of YHWH showing up like the day before revealing His Glory as a blessing, His Glory consumed them. We can be consumed with the Glory and face of YHWH unto our blessing, or we can be consumed by the Glory of His face unto our destruction. It is all in obedience unto
blessing… or rebellion unto death.
Exodus 24 says that Moses then sprinkled blood directly on the people so they could enter into the covenant with YHWH, and choose the life and blessing He was offering to them here on earth. The eternal covenant would later be sealed with the blood of Yahshua His son, to give eternal life of an eternal covenant.
The ceremony of eating and drinking inYHWH‘s presence is reenacted through the burnt offering and then the meal offering and the fellowship offering, literally, a shalom offering
. A family would bring an animal to sacrifice to the tabernacle or temple, and the meat would be eaten by the
family and the priest, with the best portions burned as an offering to YHWH.
The best portions were the fat which belongs to YHWH forever and we are not to eat of it. Remember when He said touch not my anointed, do my prophets no harm? Well this same word anointing is the same word as fatness. So the anointing is YHWH‘s and the anoi
nted one is literally His Son Yahshua, they belong to YHWH and we are not to touch them.
The kidneys and the liver also belonged to YHWH. These organs cleanse the body, and nothing but the blood of Yahshua and the mercy of YHWH can cleanse the body. So cleansing belongs to YHWH and only He can free us from sin, the people were not forgiven until the sin offering was complete.Salvation belongs to YHWH, the anointing belongs to YHWH and cleansing can only come by and through Elohim by the blood was not to be touched or eaten forever. The life is in the blood and the power of life and death is YHWH’s and His alone. The blood covers our sins and only Yahshua‘s blood made perfect atonement
for us unlike the blood of animals which was only temporary. This means we have a permanent place of entry to be with YHWH through the Prince of Shalom and His atoning blood.
The shalom offering had to be proceeded by the burnt offering and the meal offering. The animal brought to sacrifice represents the person who brings it. It symbolizes the fact that, that person is laying down their life for a new life with YHWH. Paul says in Galatians 2:20, "I have been crucified with Mashiach; it is no longer I, who live, but Mashiach lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of YHWH, who loved me and gave Himself for me." He makes a parallel comment in I Corinthians 15:31,
"I affirm, by the boasting in you, which I have in Yahshua HaMashiach, I die daily."
Paul is reflecting on the frequency of the shalom offering and that it represented our death to the flesh thus restoring fellowship and shalom with YHWH. No wonder it was the most frequently done offering as we must crucify our flesh daily to continue in fellowship with Him. This means we must not only lay down our lives but we must be consumedwith YHWH. We lay down our life and allow Yahshua to now live in us as we have surrendered ourselves totally to Him and to His Word (instructions). So we are consumed WITH Yahshua as the burnt offering, we have taken up our execution stake to follow Him; our mind is stayed upon Him and Him alone. Not as Aaron‘s sons Nadab and Abihu, who were consumed BY YHWH. The fire of the Glory of YHWH is an all-consuming fire. How many times have we heard the term ‗hey were out of order‘? Well this is a very important thing to YHWH, we must follow the instructions and stay in YHWH‘s perfect order He has given us or we will be walking in strange fire
and be consumed by YHWH.
There is a perfect example of this in the communion instructions.1st Corinthians 11:
“In the same way he also took the cup, after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink, in memory of me." 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Yahshua's death until he comes. 27 Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks Yahshua‟ cup in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and the blood of Yahshua. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and drink of the cup. 29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, if he doesn't discern Yahshua's body. 30 For this cause many among you are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep. 31 For if we discerned ourselves, we wouldn't be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are punished by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.”
We must first have repented of our sins, surrendered our lives to be consumed completely by Him, partaken of His body and blood, be in fellowship with Him, and be AT Shalom with YHWH and man. Now YHWH will come and eat with us and fellowship is restored and His Glory will be revealed. Leviticus 9 is the protocol for entering into the presence and the glory of YHWH and we must follow theinstructions so we don‘t end up in Leviticus 10 with Abihu
and Nadab. They are also a shadow picture of the church today that wants the Glory without any of the rules or proper order of entry. Could this be why the church looks just like the world: many powerless, sick, and dead.
1st Corinthians 11:
29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, if he doesn't discern Yahshua's body. 30 For this cause many among you are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep.
Everyone wants to sit down and have dinner with YHWH and have fellowship with Him in His very presence. Being surrounded by His love and power and presence in a present and tangible way has to be amazing. I used to think Leviticus was a bloody book and the Levitical Priests were butchers. But now I see it as a book of protocol to fellowship with YHWH and the priests as gourmet chefs cooking up a meal for us all to share together. Honestly, look at the hats the priests wore, very similar to the hats of a chef. LOL
The 70 elders on the mountain in Exodus 24, they actually could see the very throne room floor made of sapphire and something supernatural and the body of heaven in its clearness, and best of all they saw YHWH himself. What awonderful sight that must‘ve been.
If you see Him you will die for no man can see YHWH. Of course we must be the burnt offering and all of our flesh has to die. If we are already dead to sin and this world we cannot die again.
There was a process that they had to go through in order to approach Abba Father; no one ever has dinner with Elohim without first going through the process of offering up our life and praise and worship as a sweet smelling savor to YHWH, having fellowship with the bread of life, and making restoration with YHWH, as
no man comes to the Father except through Yahshua, the Son, the bread of life, and the Prince of Shalom.
Worship is YHWH’s
The meal offering consisted of flour that had been beaten and pulverized which represents Yahshua who is the bread of life who was beaten and bruised for our iniquities. No man can come to the Father except through Him. He is the way (the burnt offering) the truth (the meal offering) and the life (the shalom offering). A portion of the meal offering was broken off and burned asa remembrance to YHWH. This is what Yahshua said to do at the Passover meal when He broke the bread and said ―this is my body, do this in remembrance of me‖He was illustrating that He
was the meal offering. He had already been anointed with spikenard oil on his feet as a preparation for His burial, like the frankincense that was added to the meal offering as a sweet smelling savor to YHWH. However the entire portion that contained frankincense had to be sent up in smoke on the altar as it represented praise, worship and the prayers of the people. Every part of Yahshua actually went up in smoke as a sweet smelling savor to YHWH as this part of the meal offering.
becoming, like Mashiach, a sweet smelling savor to YHWH.
We must worship Him as The Holy One of Israel and lift up His name in songs and prayers of praise.
The rest of the meal offering without the praise worship and prayers added to it was left as our portion forever, as
YHWH‘s priests. We could only become priests through
Then Yahshua went up in smoke, as did the frankincense, in the natural as He entered Heaven in Acts1:9 ―And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.‖
Yahshua went up in a cloud, like the prayers of the people on the altar of incense, and He stands at the right hand of the Father ever interceding for His children. Only Yah could partake of the prayers, praise, and worship. He alone could receive the Son. And this is HIS beloved Son in whom He is well pleased, He belongs to YHWH and so does all the praise.
You shall have a song as in the night when a holy feast is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goes with a pipe to come to the mountain of YHWH, to the Rock of Yisra'el.
Don‘t you know there was a joyous song that came forthknowing they were about to see YHWH and have dinner with Him. The song ―I Can Only Imagine‖by Mercy Me
, comes to my mind as it says:
I can only imagine
What it will be like
When I walk
By Your side
I can only imagine
What my eyes will see
When Your face
Is before me
I can only imagine
Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel
Will I dance for You Jesus (Yahshua) or in awe of You be still
Will I stand in Your presence or to my knees will I fall
Will I sing halleluYah, will I be able to speak at all
I can only imagine
I can only imagine
When that day comes
And I find myself
Standing in the Son
I can only imagine
When all I will do
Forever worship You
I can only imagine
But the Word says that we don‘t have to just imagine, that
He himself will come and live in our home, walk and talk with us and we have access to His very throne, like these 70 men who ate with YHWH on the mountain.
I think we have just had the wrong protocol and not done things in order. This could explain all of the sickness and death in the church.
I believe that part of the reason for this teaching being released is because YHWH wants to deliver us from strange fire, and heal us. He greatly desires for us to enter into His presence, and His greatest desire is to fellowship with us. But we have to get our relationships right with Yah and man and have the correct order to enter the house of YHWH so we can come boldly to the throne to obtain help and mercy in times of need.
There remains therefore a Shabbat rest for the people of YHWH. 10 For he who has entered into his rest has himself also rested from his works, as YHWH did from his. 11 Let us therefore give diligence to
enter into that rest, that no man fall after the same example of disobedience. 12 For the word of YHWH is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and quick to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 There is no creature that is hidden from his sight, but all things are naked and laid open before the eyes of him with whom we have to do.14 Having then a great Kohen Gadol (high priest), who has passed through the heavens, Yahshua, the Son of YHWH, let us hold tightly to our confession. 15 For we don't have a Kohen Gadol who can't be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but one who has been in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore draw near with boldness to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy, and may find grace for timely help.
The meal offering also had oil added which represents the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) and salt was placed on top, which represented the salt covenant. The salt represents our relationship with others. Mark 9: says in verse 50“ is excellent, but if it loses its saltiness, how will you season it? So have salt in yourselves -- that is, be at shalom with each other. ―
This reflects the commandments of YHWH in Exodus 20. The first part of the commandments are about our relationship with YHWH and the ones that follow are about our relationship with man. In the shalom offering, the meal offering was shared with the priests and his family. It was also acceptable to share it with the person that was making the offering and his family. This is a reflection of the importance of our relationship with others and with YHWH.
In Matthew 5: 22 Yahshua said:
“But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say , Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. 23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; 24 Leave there thy gift before
the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. KJV
It is of great importance to have a good relationship with people. If you say you love YHWHwhom you haven‘t seen but hate your brother whom you have seen then you are a liar. Our relationship with others is a direct reflection of our relationship with YHWH. If you‘
re always butting heads, you could be a goat instead of a sheep. Goats are always butting heads with others. They are never at shalom. Thus they will always be rebelling against YHWH and will never be at shalom with Him or come into His presence to have fellowship with Him.
2 Peter 3:12
as you wait for the Day of YHWH and work to hasten its coming. That Day will bring on the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt from the heat; 13 but we, following along with his promise, wait for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness will be at home. 14 Therefore, dear friends, (men of shalom) as you look for these things, do everything you can to be found by him without spot or defect and at Shalom.
means that shalom is our destination, it is where we are to be dwelling, at the address of shalom. Sheep are at shalom and willingly lay down their life without complaining. I saw a lamb slaughtered kosher once, it never made a sound. It made me weep and think of my Savior who never said a word but willing laid down His life for me. I must also be willing to do the same.
The sacrifice is a shadow picture to show us that we mustsurrender our life and die daily as a sweet smelling savor and crucify our flesh
as Shaul (Paul) said. He knew what the sacrifices meant and how they reflected our relationship with YHWH.
The shalom offering is about restored fellowship through shalom. Shalom is about wholeness that is brought forth because of YHWH’s presence with His
This is also a shadow picture of sending shalom before us to restore His fellowship with mankind and bringing healing to the earth and man. It illustrates as well how shalom can restore the relationship between us and YHWH. Yahshua and the Father want to dwell here with us in fellowship and dine with us for millennia, but we must prepare the way.
Revelation 3:20 20
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.John 14:23 “If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.”This meal is seen as a true covenantal communion with YHWH –of which Israel could sit down at a meal with YHWH. It was as if he was truly present at the table with them as they ate. This is reflective of the Passover with Yahshua, the Son of YHWH comes and has fellowship and a meal with the 12 disciples (Israel) It is also a shadow picture of the breaking of bread done from house to house in the book of Acts and the communion ceremony left for us to do as a remembrance, which creates fellowship and healing in 1st
Corinthians: 11. I realize that this sounds redundant, but it must be because YHWH was redundant in repeating this message again and again in the Word and we somehow never saw it. I hope you hear it this time and implement it into your walk with the Father.
Eating with YHWH
I believe that communion was instituted by Yahshua and the disciples to not only continue the shalom offering, but to
extend it and bring it home to you and me. This is so that He and the Father can dwell with us and dine with us right where we live. This gives us the opportunity to partake everyday and be in YHWH‘s presence. The shalom offering was the most frequent offering done and rightly so, it was because of Israel‘s hunger for the Glory and the presence of the Father. They ate the bread of Heaven daily and now we can partake of the bread come down from Heaven daily. Psalms 78:
Yet He had commanded the clouds above, And opened the doors of heaven,24 Had rained down manna on them to eat, And given them of the bread of heaven. 25 Men ate angels' food; He sent them food to the full.
Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, 'He gave them bread from heaven to eat.'“2 Then Yahshua said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of YHWH is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world." 34 Then they said to Him, "Lord, give us this bread always." 35 And Yahshua said to them, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.
47Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50 This is the bread which comes down from heaven that one may eat of it and not die. 51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world." KJV
This Manna tasted like honey and represented Yahshua the bread come down from Heaven. In the meal offering there could never be honey added to it. I believe that it would be too close to the true bread of Heaven. Just like theanointing oils of the tabernacle couldn‘t be duplicated
, so can we not ever duplicate the bread of Heaven.
If manna was their complete substance daily so should He be ours. We can partake daily of this special gift of fellowship. Communion also means fellowship by the way. The true Heavenly manna returned and left us this place of entering in to the throne room so we could once again dine with YHWH and renew our relationship daily with YHWH, but
this time it‘s for eternity
Yahshua had fellowship with His disciples after His resurrection and each time he broke bread with them.
In Luke 24 Yahshua breaks the bread and the blinded eyes of the men are opened. This is on the road to Emmaus outside of the camp. The meal offering has now come to us outside the camp as we are now the Temple through the blood of His sacrifice.
25 He said to them, "Foolish people! So unwilling to put your trust in everything the prophets spoke! 26 Didn't the Messiah have to die like this before entering his glory?" 27Then, starting with Moshe and all the prophets, he explained to them the things that can be found throughout the Tanakh concerning himself. 28 They approached the village where they were going. He made as if he were going on farther; 29 but they held him back, saying, "Stay with us, for it's almost evening, and it's getting dark." So he went in to stay with them. 30 As he was reclining with them at the table, he took the matzah (bread), made the b'rakhah (blessing), broke it and handed it to them. 31 Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. But he became invisible to them. 32 They said to each other, "Didn't our hearts burn inside us as he spoke to us on the road, opening up the Tanakh to us?" 33 They got up at once, returned to Yerushalayim and found the Eleven gathered together with their friends, 34 saying, "It's true! Yahshua has risen! Shim`on saw him!" 35 Then the two told what had happened on the road and how he had become known to them in the breaking of the matzah. 36 They were still talking about it when -- there he was, standing among them!
Here in verse 35 they just talk about the breaking of bread and Yahshua appears in the midst of them. Wow!Not only does Mashiach expound upon the writings of the prophets and Moses but He explains the whole Tanakh to them and how it revealed to and related to Him. Still they didn‘t recognize Yahshua until He breaks bread with them, and the true covenantal relationship is revealed and fellowship with Yahshua opens their eyes to see the truth. He confirms the message of restored fellowship again as they tell the story about how
WHEN THEY BROKE BREAD HE BECAME KNOWN TO THEM!
This is most likely why the disciples broke bread with unbelievers daily and many were saved, because the presence of YHWH would show up and they knew it. Then Yahshua was made known to them and their eyes were opened in this fellowship and or shalom offering which breaks down whatever stands between us and YHWH (Isaiah 57). Then Torah can be written in our hearts and the covenant is sealed between us and Him. Fellowship and covenant are established in this meal offering (communion) that the disciples would perform as a remembrance of all He was and is. (Do this in remembrance of me Yahshua said) And the fact that His presence showed up in the room to confirm that He would be there to dine with them, paralleledthe Torah‘s meal and shalom offering where YHWH showed up. Where 2 or more are gathered in His name, there He is in the midst of them. Remember in the wilderness that manna was provided every day by YHWH, symbolizing our daily communion with our Father. It‘s all about fellowship and
expanding the kingdom through the shalom of the gospel.
Revelation 3:19 As
for me, I rebuke and discipline everyone I love; so exert yourselves, and turn from your sins! 20 Here, I'm standing at the door, knocking. If someone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he
will eat with me. 21 I will let him who wins the victory sit with me on my throne,
just as I myself also won the victory and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 Those who have ears, let them hear what the Spirit is saying to the Messianic communities."'"
1 Corinthians 11:23 For what I received YHWH is just what I passed on to you - that the Mashiach Yahshua, on the night he was betrayed, took bread; 24 and after he had made the b'rakhah he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you. Do this as a memorial to me"; 25 likewise also the cup after the meal, saying, "This cup is the New Covenant effected by my blood; do this, as often as you drink it, as a memorial to me." 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the death of Yahshua, until he comes. 27 Therefore, whoever eats Yahshua‟ bread or drinks the Mashiach‟ cup in an unworthy manner will be guilty of desecrating the body and blood Yahshua! 28 So let a person examine himself first, and then he may eat of the bread and drink from the cup; 29 for a person who eats and drinks without recognizing the body eats and drinks judgment upon himself. 30 This is why many among you are weak and sick, and some have died! 31 If we would examine ourselves, we would not come under judgment. 32 But when we are judged by YHWH, we are being disciplined, so that we will not be condemned along with the world. 33 So then, my brothers, when you gather together to eat, wait for one another. 34 If someone is hungry, he should eat at home, so that when you meet together it will not result in judgment. As for the other matters, I will instruct you about them when I come.”Verse 28 is a shadow picture of the shalom offering and the importance of the proper protocol before partaking of the body and blood of Yahshua. If there is sin in your life do the sin offering and repent. If you have come for the fellowship or shalom offering, then the burnt offering is always first before the meal offering. Examine yourself and lay down your flesh, and become a living sacrifice and a sweet smelling savor for YHWH. Then you may enter into the meal offering by worship and prayer and partaking of Yahshua as the bread of life.
If you haven‘t gone through the burnt
offering first you will desecrate the body (meal offering) and blood of Mashiach and because of this many have become sick and weak and many have died. Now comes the shalom or fellowship offering to enter into His presence and dine with Him face to face.
In Leviticus 9 Moshe ordered the people to do all of the sacrifices in order that YHWH could appear to them and reveal His Glory. The Torah portion is called the eighthday…appropriately so, as the number eight always reflects a new beginning. The new beginning is YHWH’s presence dwelling among men. YHWH consumed the offering on the altar instead of consuming the people. Forgiving their sins and coming to take them as His own
In Deuteronomy 14:22-26, YHWH tells the people to save up a tenth of their money each year and bring it to the temple to have a greatfellowship meal with him. They could buy anything they wanted to eat and
He would show up.
He said they could spend the money for whatever their heart desired: (Deut. 14:26)
For oxen, or sheep, or wine, or strong drink, or whatever your heart desires; andthere you shall eat in the presence of YHWH your Elohim and rejoice, you and your household
Here is another reflection of this offering; they and their household could eat together with YHWH, thus adding to the kingdom like in the book of Acts.
Yahshua spoke of the wedding supper as the shalom offering here in Matthew and also showed the cost of not following proper protocol in entering in with YHWH. He is sending out this message so you will recognize the call to come and dine with Him.
Matthew 22:1 Yahshua again used parables in speaking to them: 2 "The Kingdom of Heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding feast for his son, 3
but when he sent his slaves to summon the invited
guests to the wedding, they refused to come.4 So he sent some more slaves, instructing them to tell the guests, `Look, I've prepared my banquet, I've slaughtered my bulls and my fattened cattle, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding!' 5 But they weren't interested and went off, one to his farm, another to his business; 6 and the rest grabbed his slaves, mistreated them and killed them. 7 The king was furious and sent his soldiers, who killed those murderers and burned down their city. 8 "Then he said to his slaves, `Well, the wedding feast is ready; but the ones who were invited didn't deserve it. 9 So go out to the street-corners and invite to the banquet as many as you find.' 10 The slaves went out into the streets, gathered all the people they could find, the bad along with the good; and the wedding hall was filled with guests. 11 "Now when the king came in to look at the guests, he saw there a man who wasn't dressed for a wedding; so he asked him, 12 `Friend, how did you get in here without wedding clothes?' The man was speechless. 13 Then the king said to the servants, `Bind him hand and foot, and throw him outside in the dark!' In that place people will wail and grind their teeth, 14 for many are invited, but few are chosen."
The first call to return to come and dine was refused and ignored. The second call to come and dine was sent out and the burnt offering had already been given for them, paid for by the King (verse 4), that was Yahshua His Son. Then not only are the friends of YHWH too busy to show up, they kill the messengers of fellowship and intimacy with YHWH that He sends.YHWH‘s pati
ence runs out with their flagrant disobedience to come and dine, so they were deemed, no longer deserving of His presence. YHWH now invites anyone to come that will, good or bad (hot or cold but no lukewarm ones). One of His old friends (notice He calls him friend) shows up for the feast. He knew what the proper thing to wear and do was but neglected to prepare and have the proper attire of righteousness to enter. It says he was speechless. Our confession must be right; if Yahshua is going to confess us before the Father we must confess Yahshua before men. This man was cast out into outer
darkness. For many were invited, but the ones who werechosen not only didn‘t come
, but showed up in rebellion to the Word that they knew. They failed to follow the instructions on the invitation to come and dine.
Could it be that He failed to acknowledge the sacrifice given for the wedding feast? Did he fail to acknowledge Yahshua as the Son of YHWH?
I believe this speaks of Y‘hudah (Judah). He was invited
to come through Yahshua to the Father to the wedding feast but refused and even killed the messengers. So that is where Ephraim gets in the door because he trusts the sacrifice given has opened the door for him to enter in for the wedding feast.
It is also a shadow picture of Ephraim failing to follow the proper protocol to enter into the presence of YHWH. He was a friend (man of shalom) but came without preparing the way. Like Abihu and Nadab, seeking the gift without the giver or seeking His glory without following His commandments (instructions). We must be consumedwith all that YHWH is and says and sanctify His Holy Name. If we don‘t, we will be consumed by
Him, like Abihu and Nadab as a strange fire that is not a sweet smelling savor to YHWH.
Could it be the mandidn‘t send shalom (shalom offering to
prepare the way) before himself to remove everything that blocked the path between himself and YHWH?
Have we truly followed the instructions given to us by Yahshua and the instructions given to us by YHWH in the Torah to come and dine? Have we cared enough to read and study them so we will be properly attired to enter into His Sanctuary of fellowship?
Why did YHWH accept ordinary people in…
the good and the bad? Remember shalom is for those far off and those nearby but the lukewarm are vomited out of His mouth.
We must be under the covenantal bond made through the blood of the sacrifice; YHWH will then accept us into His presence.
The Aaronic Blessing and Shalom
Now let‘s look at a practical app
lication that was implemented by YHWH thousands of years ago to establish Israel as His bride.
Numbers 6And then YHWH spoke to Moses, saying: 23 "Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, 'This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them: 24 "YHWH bless you and keep you; 25 YHWH make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; 26 YHWH lift up His countenance upon you, and give you Shalom." „7 "So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them."
When YHWH is angry with you He hides His face from you. But when you have gained His favor His face shines upon you. His favor brings His shalom to us and in this way He puts His very name upon us. Then His shalom blessings of completeness follow. All blessings are included in shalom. We are to speak this blessing over the people. Because of shalom being sent to them they can be grafted into the Kingdom of shalom. The Aaronic blessing clears the way for their feet to be turned into the paths of shalom. Because of Yahshua preparing the way for us we are now priests and kings and we are the temple of the Ruach HaKodesh. It is now our responsibility to speak this blessing over the people so they also can come into the kingdom and have the name of YHWH written upon them.
YHWH is sending shalom to where He himself is about to go, His name is going to be placed on the children of Israel.
Then the blessing and complete-ness of shalom comes upon His children. Interesting that YHWH follows His own protocol of entering the house.
The burnt offering, meal offering, shalomoffering/fellowship offering, appearance of YHWH‘s glory in Leviticus 9, and Deuteronomy 14‘s eating in the presence of
YHWH, are all shadow pictures of our Sabbath rest and fellowship with YHWH on this Holy set apart day. YHWH is revealing to us what our Sabbath with Him is supposed to look like in these demonstrations of His protocol to enter in with Him. There is a protocol to enter into His rest with Him which entails the keeping of His commandments, which is a reflection of the importance of our entering into eternity with Him. We must keep His commandments (instructions) as they are written, in order to be a part of His Kingdom and rest with Him in the Kingdom for eternity. Yahshua said if you love Him you will keep His commands. The first most Holy day set apart by YHWH is The Sabbath. He said in the 10 commandments to remember the Sabbath and keep it Holy.
The Sabbath and shalom are intrinsically connected in many ways. The Sabbath rest with the Abba Father brings the same attributes as shalom; shalom means peace, and isrooted in the word שלם(shaleim), which means completion. Without shalom (Sar Shalom), there can be no completion... we are complete in Him. ―Shalom‖means wholene
ss, completion, wellness, and perfection. When we rest in Him in the Sabbath we receive all of these blessings, it says in Leviticus 26 that shalom comes to the land when we keep the Sabbath. All blessings of life and health, and prosperity
are yours in obedience to the keeping of the Sabbath. Shabbat Shalom!
Here is what the Sabbath is supposed to look like according to Isaiah 58. It is a fast of everything that our life would normally look like. Like in the burnt offering we are separated from sin, have laid down our life completely for YHWH, and been completely consumed with all that is Him.
"Here is the sort of fast I want - releasing those unjustly bound, untying the thongs of the yoke, letting the oppressed go free, breaking every yoke, 7 sharing your food with the hungry, taking the homeless poor into your house, clothing the naked when you see them, fulfilling your duty to your kinsmen!" 8 Then your light will burst forth like the morning, your new skin will quickly grow over your wound; your righteousness will precede you, and YHWH's glory will follow you. 9 Then you will call, and YHWH will answer; you will cry, and he will say, "Here I am." If you will remove the yoke from among you, stop false accusation and slander, 10 generously offer food to the hungry and meet the needs of the person in trouble; then your light will rise in the darkness, and your gloom become like noon. 11 YHWH will always guide you; he will satisfy your needs in the desert, he will renew the strength in your limbs; so that you will be like a watered garden, like a spring whose water never fails. 12 You will rebuild the ancient ruins, raise foundations from ages past, and be called "Repairer of broken walls, Restorer of streets to live in." 13 "If you hold back your foot on Shabbat from pursuing your own interests on my holy day; if you call Shabbat a delight, YHWH's holy day, worth honoring; then honor it by not doing your usual things or pursuing your interests or speaking about them. 14 If you do, you will find delight in YHWH- I will make you ride on the heights of the land and feed you with the heritage of your ancestor Ya'akov, for the mouth of YHWH has spoken."
This has to be one of my most favorite scriptures in the Tanakh. It is a perfect outline of everything YHWH has laid out for us in the shadow pictures of His Word. However, it is no longer a shadow, but a reality of His presence, healing,
and blessing in our lives. When we honor His Word, keep His instructions, and use the proper protocol to enter in with YHWH the King of the Universe then we can walk with Him in perfect peace and completeness. Do you see the shalom offering in this? It is everywhere just open your eyes and you will see it in verses 8 and 9 underlined above.
"Remember the day of Shabbat, to keep it holy. 9 You shall labor six days, and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a Shabbat to YHWH your Elohim. You shall not do any work in it, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your man-servant, nor your maid-servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates; 11 for in six days YHWH made heaven and eretz (the land), the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day; therefore YHWH blessed the day of Shabbat, and made it holy.
Needless to say, I love this part because it was the obedience to this command that brought total healing and restoration to my body from being totally disabled for 13 and a half years. I had numerous illnesses that racked my body with pain that was unbearable. If you would like to hear all of the details of my healing, go to my website and read the miracle healing page.
Isaiah 58 reveals the healing in the keeping of the Sabbath and Yahshua always healed on the Sabbath, which reveals the healing inside of this Holy set apart day. The bottom line is that when we enter into the Sabbath we enter into the Kingdom of Shalom where every blessing is. That is because it is where YHWH is and His very essence is present to bring healing, health, well-being, prosperity, completeness in Him because He is complete in all things. There are many benefits to hanging out with The King of the Universe, the Prince of Shalom for a day of imitating Him and resting from our works. Try it and see what happens in your life. I have heard of so many miracles that came because people began to keep the most overlooked command ever given. Instruction #4 in the commandments is
to remember the Sabbath and keep it Holy. If we love Him we will keep His commands is what Yahshua said. If we truly love Him we will want to rest with Him.
Yahshua our Sar Shalom brings that place of completeness inthe Sabbath. We say ―Shabbat shalom‖as a blessing and a greeting to others, which reveals our Prince of Shalom in the Sabbath as well. There are so many more things that reveal Yahshua in the offerings, in Torah, and the prophets; but like the works He did while on earth would fill the whole earth if written in books, He is woven into every part of Torah. Without end we could explore His presence there and the presence of His shalom peace. However we will have to leave them to future adventures in the deep and secret places of the Word. We must recognize though, that from the beginning, YHWH‘s intentions were to let these offerings and sacrifices be teaching vehicles. Vehicles are to take us somewhere and they are there for us to drive. They are also shadows—
for a shadow to exist there must be a reality. Something in the real that casts the shadow. The reality is the life and death of Yahshua, and we are to strive to follow our Reality and Savior as closely as we can, as dear children, as Paul (Shaul) says in:
becoming, like Mashiach, a sweet smelling savor to YHWH.
The sacrifices of Leviticus mirror Yahshua‘s
life and death. His life and death mirror Leviticus. We can glean a wealth of valuable information from looking at the manner in which He lived and the footsteps He took to get to the stake and die for our sins. I believe He purposely walked out each offering and sacrifice to bring total restoration, and complete fellowship with the Father so we can dine with Him like they did in Leviticus, face to face.
The sacrifices and offerings are much like the road to Emmaus with the disciples. Yahshua expounded the scriptures to them in detail and t
hey still couldn‘t see Him in
it, as we have been unable to see Yahshua in Leviticus. They heard what the Torah and the Tanakh said about Him, but they could not see Him face to face until they preparedthe way
, Yahshua is the way, the truth, and the life, and no man comes to the Father except by Him.
When we fellowship and break bread in covenant with Him that is when suddenly we see Him right there in the midst of us and in His Word. Heis
the Word so we should be able to see Him in it. He is hidden in every line and picture presented. Just like the word pictures of the Hebrew language. A tapestry has been woven together that reveals a much bigger picture and the story of Mashiac is clearly woven into every fiber of the final picture of Torah.
Psalms 34: 8
Oh taste and see that YHWH is good. Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
The Covenant of Shalom
Ezekie 37 21…“eho d, I wi ke he chi d en of Yis 'efrom among the nations, where they are gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: 22 and I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Yisra'el; and one king shall be king to them all; and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all; 23 neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions; but I will save them out of all their dwelling-places, in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their Elohim. 24 My servant David shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my ordinances, and observe my statutes, and do them. 25 They shall dwell in the land that I have given to Ya`akov my servant, in which your fathers lived; and they shall dwell therein, they, and their children,
and their children's children, forever: and David my servant shall be their prince forever. 26Moreover I will make a covenant of shalom with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them forevermore. 27 My tent also shall be with them; and I will be their YHWH, and they shall be my people. 28 The nations shall know that I am YHWH who sanctifies Yisra'el, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them forevermore.
The covenant of shalom is enacted by the Mashiac Yahshua when he returns to set up His sanctuary and His tent in the midst of Israel. This is the eternal fulfillment of the shalom offering in Yahshua. However the eternal covenant through Yahshua the Sar Shalom is eternal fellowship unending.
Our joy will be full forever and ever in Him, HalleluYah!!!
therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; andI will judge between sheep and sheep. 23 I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. 24 I, YHWH, will be their Elohim, and my servant David prince among them; I, YHWH, have spoken it. 25 I will make with them a covenant of shalom, and will cause evil animals to cease out of the land; and they shall dwell securely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods. 26 I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in its season; there shall be showers of blessing. 27 The tree of the field shall yield its fruit, and the eretz shall yield its increase, and they shall be secure in their land; and they shall know that I am YHWH, when I have broken the bars of their yoke, and have delivered them out of the hand of those who made slaves of them. 28 They shall no more be a prey to the nations, neither shall the animals of the eretz devour them; but they shall dwell securely, and none shall make them afraid. 29
I will raise up to them a plantation for renown, and they shall be no more consumed with
famine in the land, neither bears the shame of the nations any more.30 They shall know that I, YHWH, their Elohim am with them, and that they, the house of Yisra'el, are my people, says YHWH. 31 You my sheep, the sheep of my pasture, are men, and I am your Elohim, says YHWH.
Once again the covenant is enacted by our Mashiac Yahshua our shepherd like unto David and we will be His sheep the sheep from His pasture. Yahshua is the judge between sheep and sheep, not sheep and goats. He said He would separate the sheep from the goats and the goats have no covenant with shalom. And here it says‗sheep‘ 4 times in this covenant of shalom. Again 4 is completion but it also means YHWH wants us to see that Yahshua‘s reign is over
sheep of His pasture and nothing by any means will ever harm them here. Our shepherd causes all the evil animals to cease from the land so that we can even sleep in the woods without fear of harm. Israel will no longer be prey to the nations. (The United Nations continues to vote against Israel and to try to help bring about their demise, I pray that Israel will no longer be their prey)
Koinonia and the Glory
Koinonia is the anglicisation of a Greek word (κοινωνία) that
means communion by intimate participation. The word is used frequently in the New Testament of the Bible to describe the relationship within the Early Messianic Community as well as the act of breaking bread in the manner which Yahshua prescribed during the Passover meal [John 6:48-69, Matthew 26:26-28, 1 Corinthians 10:16, 1 Corinthians 11:24]. As a result the word is used within the body of Mashiach to participate, as Paul says, in the Communion of - in this manner it identifies the idealized state of fellowship and community that should exist - Communion.( Wikipedia)
Koinonia was the term used for fellowship with Yahshua inthe 1980‘s. Everyone talked about having communion and or koinonia with Yahshua and this was the ultimate relationship with Abba Father. It came through breaking bread which is the meal offering, and by worship and adoration of Yahshua, (frankincense) again part of the meal offering. They even partook of the oil of the Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh). The burnt offering of total surrender was never addressed and they never got to the desert where He actually showed up and ate with them through the shalom offering. It was in the shalom offering that koinonia actually resided and we never recognized it, so we fell short of the very thing we were striving for. If we wouldn‘t have been so blind to The ―Old Testament‖and its shadow pictures and maps for the
journey, we would have gotten to the greater place of His presence we sought for whole heartily.
Torah is literally a map to the richest treasures of truth, and by discarding Torah we have wandered aimlessly in the desert for decades. Yahshua is the living breathing walking Torah come alive come to turn our feet into the paths of shalom. If you will study Torah and then look at His footsteps you will see that He walked out every word of the Torah in His life.
By His blood that was poured out for us at the base of the altar and applied in front of the tent of meeting, we may now enter into the Holy of Holies. Once Torah has been written in our hearts by the Ruach, we become the temple of the Ruach HaKodesh and those offerings can be offered up daily in our lives so that we may sit down with our Abba Father and know Him intimately and share a meal with Him. That meal is Yahshua the bread of life and He is the mediator between us and YHWH and we both partake of Him.
Yahshua has prepared the way for us by breaking down the middle wall of partition between us and YHWH, tearing
the veil in two that we may enter in as a priest in His service. Let us offer uppraise‘s
commensurate (equal to) to His glory so we may be a sweet smelling savor to YHWH and be pleasing to Him. Yahshua stands at the door waiting for you to greet Him with the words that are the key to His opening the door; this is the proper protocol that was illustrated so perfectly in Leviticus. YHWH was teaching us to mind our manners so we could come unto Him and send shalom to remove all the barriers between us and Him.
Abba Father, we repent before you right now for all of the false teachings we have followed and failing to look at the road signs that led to your presence. We repent for thinking that the old had to be thrown out for the new, when new was the old illustrated. Forgive us Father; we lay down our thinking for your thinking. Your ways are higher than our ways and we lay down our lives to you now. May we be a sweet smelling fragrance in your nostrils so that you will be satisfied. We ask you to forgive us for our poor relationships with friends and family and ask you to heal all of our relationships including the relationship between me and you Father. Forgive us for butting heads like a bunch of goats and make us into your precious lambs. We ask the Ruach HaKodesh to come now and write Torah in our hearts and fill us with the oil of joy and love for one another. We send shalom before us in this offering, may all the walls between us and YHWH be broken down and His name be written upon us now and forever. HalleluYah!!!! Thank you Abba Father. InYahushua‘s,
Shalom and Improper Use
Improper use of shalom could cause injury.
James3 1 “Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, since you know that we will be judged more severely. 2 For we all stumble in many ways; if someone does not stumble in what he says, he is a mature man who can bridle his whole body. 3 If we put a bit into a horse's mouth to make it obey us, we control its whole body as well. 4 And think of a ship - although it is huge and is driven by strong winds, yet the pilot can steer it wherever he wants with just a small rudder. 5 So too the tongue is a tiny part of the body, yet it boasts great things. See how a little fire sets a whole forest ablaze! 6 Yes, the tongue is a fire, a world of wickedness. The tongue is so placed in our body that it defiles every part of it, setting ablaze the whole of our life; and it is set on fire by Gei-Hinnom itself. 7 For people have tamed and continue to tame all kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures; 8 but the tongue no one can tame - it is an unstable and evil thing, full of death-dealing poison! 9 With it we bless YHWH, the Father; and with it we curse people, who were made in the image of YHWH 10 Out of the same mouth come blessing and cursing! Brothers, it isn't right for things to be this way. 11 A spring doesn't send both fresh and bitter water from the same opening, does it? 12 Can a fig tree yield olives, my brothers? or a grapevine, figs? Neither does salt water produce fresh. 13 Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him demonstrate it by his good way of life, by actions done in the humility that grows out of wisdom. 14 But if you harbor in your hearts bitter jealousy and selfish ambition, don't boast and attack the truth with lies! 15 This wisdom is not the kind that comes down from above; on the contrary, it is worldly, unspiritual, demonic. 16
For where there are jealousy and selfish ambition, there will be disharmony and every foul practice.17 But the wisdom from above is, first of all, pure, then full of shalom, kind, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. 18 And shalom makers who sow seed in shalom raise a harvest of righteousness.
Again shalom makers are the children of YHWH
And the seed they sow is shalom and the fruit of that seed will be shalom and righteousness. Their harvest will also be righteousness.
Galatians 5; 13
Instead, serve one another in love. 14 For the whole of the Torah is summed up in this one sentence: "Love your neighbor as yourself" 15 but if you go on snapping at each other and tearing each other to pieces, watch out, or you will be destroyed by each other! 16 What I am saying is this: run your lives by the Spirit. Then you will not do what your old nature wants. 17 For the old nature wants what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit wants what is contrary to the old nature. These oppose each other, so that you find yourselves unable to carry out your good intentions. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, then you are not in subjection to the system that results from perverting the Torah into legalism. 19 And it is perfectly evident what the old nature does. It expresses itself in sexual immorality, impurity and indecency; 20 involvement with the occult and with drugs; in feuding, fighting, becoming jealous and getting angry; in selfish ambition, factionalism, intrigue 21 and envy; in drunkenness, orgies and things like these. I warn you now as I have warned you before: those who do such things will have no share in the Kingdom of God! 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love; joy, shalom, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 humility, self control. Nothing in the Torah stands against such things. 24 Moreover, those who belong to the Messiah Yahshua have put their old nature to death on the stake, along with its passions and desires. 25 Since it is through the Spirit that we have Life, let it also be through the Spirit that we order our
lives day by day.26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.
This describes the fruit of the sheep, which is the fruit of the spirit, and the fruit of the goats which is the fruit of the flesh.
YHWH‘s Kingdom builds up brothers and sisters, nottearing them down with words. We must encourage one another daily. Instead, serve one another in love.
For the whole of the Torah is summed up in this one sentence: "Love your neighbor as yourself".
The shalom offering once again is about fellowship with YHWH and our family, friends, and neighbors. Our relationship suffers greatly and He cannot show up to fellowship with us, if we are not at shalom with our neighbor. Leave your offering at the altar and first go and make things right with them. Then return to full fellowship with YHWH.
1 Corinthians 11: 23
For what I received YHWH is just what I passed on to you - that the Mashiach Yahshua, on the night he was betrayed, took bread; 24 and after he had made the b'rakhah he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you. Do this as a memorial to me"; 25 likewise also the cup after the meal, saying, "This cup is the New Covenant effected by my blood; do this, as often as you drink it, as a memorial to me." 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the death of Yahshua, until he comes. 27Therefore, whoever eats Yahshua‟ bread or drinks the Mashiach‟ cup in an unworthy manner will be guilty of desecrating the body and blood Yahshua! 28 So let a person examine himself first, and then he may eat of the bread and drink from the cup; 29 for a person who eats and drinks without recognizing the body eats and drinks judgment upon himself. 30 This is why many among you are weak and sick, and some have died! 31 If we would examine ourselves, we would not come under judgment. 32 But when we are judged by YHWH, we are being disciplined, so that we will not be condemned along with the world.
This shows us that improper protocol has a price tag. We are not to cast our pearls before the swine, eat or partake unworthily or send shalom to an unbeliever or anti-mashiach. Please count the cost and in the fear of YHWH obey Hiswarnings so you don‘t pay the high cost of misuse of the
power and kingdom of YHWH like Abihu and Nadab.
Matt. 12: 25
Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not survive. 26If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself; so how can his kingdom survive? 27 Besides, if I drive out demons by Ba`al-Zibbul, by whom do your people drive them out? So, they will be your judges! 28 But if I drive out demons by the Spirit of YHWH, then the Kingdom of YHWH has come upon you! 29 "Or again, how can someone break into a strong man's house and make off with his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? After that he can ransack his house. 30 "Those who are not with me are against me, and those who do not gather with me are scattering. 31 Because of this, I tell you that people will be forgiven any sin and blasphemy, but blaspheming the Ruach HaKodesh will not be forgiven. 32 One can say something against the Son of Man and be forgiven; but whoever keeps on speaking against the Ruach HaKodesh will never be forgiven, neither in the `olam hazeh nor in the `olam haba. 33 "If you make a tree good, its fruit will be good; and if you make a tree bad, its fruit will be bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. 34 You snakes! How can you who are evil say anything good? For the mouth speaks what overflows from the heart. 35 The good person brings forth good things from his store of good, and the evil person brings forth evil things from his store of evil.
36 Moreover, I tell you this: on the Day of Judgment people will have to give account for every careless word they have spoken; 37 for by your own words you will be acquitted, and by your own words you will be condemned."
If you arenot gathering with Yahshua you are scattering
. If you are not with Him you are against Him. So being a fence sitter will never get you into the Kingdom.
But the wicked are like the restless sea - unable to be still, its waters toss up mud and dirt. 21There is no shalom, says YHWH, for the wicked.
Leviticus 10: 1
Nadav and Avihu, the sons of Aharon, each took his censer, and put fire in it, and laid incense on it, and offered strange fire before YHWH, which he had not commanded them. 2 And fire came forth from before YHWH, and devoured them, and they died before YHWH. 3 Then Moshe said to Aharon, "This is what YHWH spoke of, saying, "'I will show myself holy to those who come near me, And before all the people I will be glorified.'" Aharon held his shalom.
It is always important to bring a good report so this chapter is difficult for me to write. Being a watchman though I have to warn about what is ahead and guide peoples feet into the paths of shalom. So I must show you the dangers of misusing the powerful words given to us by YHWH himself.
It is a common practice when anyone designs a powerful weapon to put a safety feature on it. This would prevent any accidental damage done or intentional misuse so as to cause harm. YHWH did just that and laid out in the Word the warnings and instructions clearly. It is also to prevent the wicked one from using the things created by YHWH to build up his own kingdom. There is no shalom for the wicked you know.YHWH also left instructions so His children wouldn‘t
use it improperly and bring harm to themselves because of those safety features that were established in the Kingdom. Anything that YHWH establishes in the Kingdom is unchanging so we must study to show ourselves approved in the understanding of His Kingdom principles.
Nadav and Abihu had been there going through all of the commanded steps to be betrothed to YHWH and sit in His presence with the seventy elders on the mountain and view the throne of sapphire and the heavens in Exodus 24. They were present and participants in following to the letter the
instructions to bring the Glory of YHWH down for everyone to see in Leviticus 9. And yet here we are in Leviticus 10 and they are already not following the instructions and it costs them their lives. This is a shadow picture of the blindness we have walked in to the so called Old Testament and how it has passed away and is not for us today. In reality it is the Torah and it is Yahshua, for in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with YHWH and was YHWH. Let us not forget the importance of protocol and proper manners to enter into the presence of the King of the Universe. He shows Himself Holy to those who come near Him. If you are in sin and out of order or in rebellion against His word, you are dead
. If you have entered properly and sent shalom before you, you will behold His face and His glory!
Improper use of the word shalom could result in severe harm, injury, or death.
Shalom was not given to the wicked nor is it for their blessing. In fact it becomes a curse if they try to use it.
Let‘s look at 2John
1. The Elder To: The chosen lady and her children, whom I love in truth - and not only I but also all who have come to know the truth - 2 because of the Truth which remains united with us and will be with us forever: 3 Grace, mercy andshalom will be with us from YHWH the Father and from Yahshua the Messiah, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. 4 I was very happy when I found some of your children living in truth, just as the Father commanded us. 5 And now, dear lady, I am requesting that we love one another - not as if this were a new command I am writing you, for it is the one which we have had from the beginning. 6 Moreover, love is this: that we should live according to his commands. This is the command, as you people have heard from the beginning; live by it! 7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world, people who do not acknowledge Yahshua the Mashiach's coming as a human being. Such a person is a deceiver and an anti-Messiah. 8 Watch yourselves, so that you won't lose what you have worked for,
but will receive your full reward.9 Everyone who goes ahead and does not remain true to what the Mashiach has taught does not have YHWH. Those who remain true to his teaching have both the Father and the Son. 10 If someone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, don't welcome him into your home. Don't even say, "Shalom!" to him; 11 for the person who says, "Shalom!" to him shares in his evil deeds.
12 Although I have much to write you people, I would rather not use paper and ink. Instead, I hope to come and see you and to talk with you face to face, so that our joy may be complete. 13 The children of your chosen sister send you their greetings.
WARNING: if you say shalom to the goyim or pagans or unbelievers, or anyone who denies Mashiach, there is a danger to your reward and you could share in their evil deeds.
You notice first of all that John sends Shalom before him before he begins his letter. Amazingly nearly all the books in the New Testament send shalom before they begin. I think the disciples took to heart what Yahshua taught them. John sends Shalom into the house so that you can hear what is being said without chaos clouding your thoughts. If you lookthrough the New Testament otherwise known as the B‘rit Hadasha you will see that all the letters written by the disciples except Hebrews and First John, send Shalom before them into the house. However the greeting does show up in 2ndJohn at the beginning of the chapter and in 3rd John at the end of the chapter. I notice all the books that are the accounts of Yahshua‘s life, Matt. Mark Luke John and
the Acts of the epistles are written as history rather than a letter and shalom is not sent before these books. The book of Hebrews begins proclaiming the Word and so does First John so I imagine that proclaiming the Word is proclaiming the Kingdom of Messiah which is shalom. There are 22 letters and 20 proclaim shalom and grace before them.
It looks like it was important to the disciples to follow Mashiac
h‘s teaching and send shalom into the house.
If you say shalom to the goyim or pagans or unbelievers, there is a danger to your reward.Let‘s
look closer at the warning about misusing shalom.
3 John 7.
For many deceivers have gone out into the world, people who do not acknowledge Yahshua the Mashiach's coming as a human being. Such a person is a deceiver and an anti-Mashiach. 8 Watch yourselves, so that you won't lose what you have worked for, but will receive your full reward. 9 Everyone who goes ahead and does not remain true to what the Mashiach has taught does not have God. Those who remain true to his teaching have both the Father and the Son. 10 If someone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, don't welcome him into your home.Don't even say, "Shalom!" to him; 11 for the person who says, "Shalom!" to him shares in his evil deeds.
Depart from evil and do good;
Seek shalom and pursue it.
Pursue shalom with all men, and the sanctification without which no one will see YHWH.
This really puts the fear of YHWH in my heart. We are not to shoot from the hip with a shot gun with this powerful word. It is to be used with fear and obedience to His Word and His Kingdom. We are not to make a covenant of Shalom with anyone who does not know Yahshua or acknowledge Him.
Recognizing Seekers of Shalom
You will know one another in that you have love one for another. Love is the
fruit of who we are or aren‘t.
I have met people and the minute I laid eyes on them I saw love in them and I loved them. This is what happened when I met my adopted Mom. She was a woman of shalom
immediately when I saw her and we talked for hours about Torah, Yahshua, and IsraeI. After many years of her mothering me I just declared her my Momma Lou.
My brother that is proof reading this book and his wife, when I met them it was the same way. They were my family within minutes of our meeting. I can give you other examples of many precious people in my life. I have found many friends, people of shalom, by sending shalom into the house before I enter.
However we must be careful whom we greet with shalom, if they are an anti-mashiac then we are out of order and wecan lose part of our reward. Don‘t welcome an anti-mashiach into your home and don‘t bless him or send the kingdom to
him or you will share in his evil deeds. This is not about winning the lost!!!! This is about being unequally yoked. We are not to yoke with the enemy or speak blessings on them.
An example of this was the actions of Joshua(Y‘Hoshua) who was tricked into making a peace treaty with a pagan nation. He didn‘t ask YHWH or consider the consequences but did it anyways. In so doing the enemy was welcomed into the kingdom of promise. Even though the goyim had to serve Israel as slaves, Israel had to defend them if anyone came against them. So what is wrong with this picture? They have to defend the enemy as they were unequally yoked. Ever wonder how the enemy gets in the door? You let him in by not obeying YHWH‘s commands.
Test every spirit and see if it be of YHWH is what the Word says. We must take this seriously and apply it to our lives.
What did Yahshua say about his scenario?
Yahshua said to them, "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.
Yahshua answered, verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Anyone who walks in the flesh is not part of YHWH‘s
Kingdom. The flesh must be crucified and the life must be a surrendered vessel.
Who then is a believer? The test if someone is a believer is if he believes Yahshua came, was born of a virgin, died, was buried, and rose again, and that He is the son of YHWH. If He is a Son of YHWH he is a shalom maker.
If someone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, don't welcome him into your home.
"When you come to a town or village, look for someone trustworthy and stay with him until you leave.
……pay attention! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.
"Whenever you enter a house, first say, `Shalom!' to the household.6 If a seeker of shalom is there, your `Shalom!' will find its rest with him; and if there isn't, it will return to you.
You see how easy it is? You sendshalom into the house (not to the person)
and shalom itself will find the shalom seekers there and reveal them to you. And then you will know one another in that you have love one for another.
Now we are to be looking for someone who believes in Mashiach and that he is the Son of YHWH, someone trustworthy, and one who is a seeker of shalom to speak the blessing of declaring the Kingdom upon. What are the evil deeds we share in if we speak shalom to an unbeliever?
But the wicked are like the troubled sea; for it can't rest and its waters cast up mire and dirt. 21 There is no shalom, says YHWH, to the wicked.
Sound like chaos to me. If they are kicking up mire and dirt they must be wicked and not a shalom maker.
But if the people of a house or town will not welcome you or listen to you, leave it and shake its dust from your feet! 15. Yes, I tell you, it will be more tolerable on the Day of Judgment for the people of S'dom and `Amora than for that town! 16. "Pay attention! I am sending you out like sheep among wolves, so be as:
prudent as snakes and as harmless as doves.”If they won‘t hear Torah or
listen to it and they have no hospitality to welcome you, then they are wicked and not a shalom maker.
We must be prudent in these matters it says
pru·dent =1.capable of exercising sound judgment in practical matters,
2.cautious or discreet in conduct; circumspect; not rash
3.managing carefully and with economy
So be cautious and carefully discern the land beforeentering and use sound judgment in words and deed. Don‘t take anything with you when you go and don‘t greet anyone
on the road. Rightfully discerning to hold your shalom greeting until you reach your destination. Walk with discretion and be cautious where you go and who you speak with when you are going to share the gospel with others and bring the Torah to them.
m ess=•Like a dove be: incapable of causing harm.
Don‟in end o h m o offend; e inoffensive.
Be a Dove and prepare the way for Yahshua to show up by sending shalom in the proper manner so you can gather with Him in the harvest.
Joshua brought harm to the Kingdom by his actions so think about your words and actions in the fear of YHWH.
Luke 10:4 says
Carry no purse, nor wallet, nor sandals.
You have received without paying, so give without asking payment. 9. Don't take money in your belts, no gold, no silver, no copper; 10. and for the trip don't take a pack, an extra shirt, shoes or a walking stick -- a worker should be given what he needs.
This one is the very theme our ministry. Freely we have received freely we give. We believe in giving everything YHWH has given to us by His spirit away for free. You cannot sell the Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh).
Then, as Kefa and Yochanan placed their hands on them, they received the Ruach HaKodesh.18 Shim'on saw that the Spirit was given when the emissaries placed their hands on them, and he offered them money. 19 "Give this power to me, too," he said, "so that whoever I place my hands on will receive the Ruach HaKodesh." 20 But Kefa said to him, "Your silver go to ruin - and you with it, for thinking the free gift of YHWH can be bought! 21 You have no part at all in this matter; because in the eyes of YHWH, your heart is crooked. 22 So repent of this wickedness of yours, and pray toYHWH. Perhaps you will yet be forgiven for holding such a thought in your heart. 23 For I see that you are extremely bitter and completely under the control of sin!"
You can see the root of this sinful thought of buying the Ruach HaKodesh is bitterness and the control of sin (possibly jealousy).
I don‘t know what we
would do without technology as people can download from the internet anything we have for
free. We still give away CD‘s anywhere we go and havegiven away thousands of them. It is our gift back to YHWH for all He has given to us. Freely we have received from Him so freely we give back to Him. There are those who don‘t have the technology to download so we must provide the CD‘s
for them. We have also given away books, however it is just too expensive for us as we are self-supporting. We now make the books available to read on the internet or download.
“Greet no one on the way.”We aren‘t to greet strangers on the road with shalom. There are many places in the Word that talk about ‗holding your peace’. I am going to address this phrase in a future chapter as I feel it reveals important protocols that can‘t be addressed in a single paragraph. This is an ongoing work as there are volumes to say about this one word ―shalom‖
written about 400 times in the Bible.
We en‟o send sh om o he wicked othe goyim (pagans) or we could lose our reward.
2John 1:8 Watch yourselves, that we don't lose the things which we have accomplished, but that we receive a full reward.
The fear of YHWH is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth forever.
Psalms 25:14The secret of YHWH is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.
Psalms 34:7-13 The angel of YHWH encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. 8 O taste and see that YHWH is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. 9 O fear YHWH, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. 10 The young lions do lac, and suffer hunger: but they that seek YHWH shall not want any good thing. 11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of YHWH. 12 What man is he that desireth life, and
loveth many days, that he may see good? 13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. KJV
The power of life and death is in the tongue, so be careful how you use it and where you aim it.
So how will you know if someone is not a deceiver and is a seeker of shalom? Shalom will remain upon him! You will know when someone has shalom or not. The eye is the mirror of the soul, look someone in the eyes and if you feel that shalom that passes all understanding you will know you have a friend. Oddly enough in the Torah the translation forfriend comes from ―man of shalom‖in Hebrew. How many ―friends‖do you have that are truly a man
or woman of shalom? Maybe you should be careful who you call a friend. Are your friends sheep or goats?
Goatsare always butting heads with others and
are never at shalom.
Sheep willingly lay down their life without complaining
Let me tell you the difference between the sheep and the goats. They are both used intermittently for the sacrifice however in the sacrifice that involves Azazel, hedoesn‘t die. He refuses to die to sin and surrender his flesh to YHWH and be in fellowship with Him. The goat is sent out to the desert with his sin or put out of the camp. This is what we are supposed to do, when there are people in the community who are living in sin, is put them outside the camp. Sin doesn‘t belong in the camp or the Kingdom. It is to be put
out. We are not to be unequally yoked with them.
Matthew 25:31 31
"But when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. 32 Before him all the nations will be gathered, and he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will tell those on his right
hand, (the sheep) 'Come, blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world;….
41)Then will he say also to those on the left hand (the goats), 'Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire which is prepared for the devil and his angels; 42 for I was hungry, and you didn't give me food to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink; 43 I was a stranger, and you didn't take me in; naked, and you didn't clothe me; sick, and in prison, and you didn't visit me.'
2 Peter 3:12
as you wait for the Day of YHWH and work to hasten its coming. That Day will bring on the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt from the heat; 13 but we, following along with his promise, wait for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness will be at home. 14 Therefore, dear friends, (men of shalom) as you look for these things, do everything you can to be found by him without spot or defect and at Shalom.
Abba Father please forgive us for scattering and not gathering with you. May we not ever speak against the children of YHWH no matter what has been said or done in the past. Let the fruit of the spirit live and abide in us and our tongues. May we dwell in the Kingdom of shalom with Yahshua and sow and reap shalom in all that we say and do. Let us not think that we can build your kingdom with praying for shalom while we continue to tear down our brothers and sisters. We are being built together into a habitation of your presence. We ask you Abba Father for the wisdom from above which is, first of all, pure, then full of shalom, kindness, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Fill us full of your love to love our neighbors as ourselves. May our actions be done in the humility that grows out of wisdom. And make us all shalom makers. Those who sow seed in shalom and raise a harvest of righteousness. Have mercy on us Yahshua for all the places we have failed you and transform us into your image. I pray that we will be worthy to escape the judgment
and may we all be found at shalom. Fill us full of your love for one another and for our Abba Father and His Torah and truth.
In Yahshua‘s name,
The Name and the Dream
This chapter is about something I haven‘t wanted to discuss
due to the controversy about it. However I had such a strong leading from many different sources that I know it has to be in the book. I just got the reason why it belongs here 2 days ago. YHWH made it so evident to me that I wept at the beauty of it.
I love His name and always have for 35 plus years ofserving Him. It‘s just that the more we know about Hebrew the more the name changes. This makes way for a lot of
goats to butt heads about it, so I just don‘t like to discuss it.
I felt I had already found the new name which according to some very influential teachers and wise beyond belief was‗ahovah‘. I watched their teaching on GLC and it sounded very convincing to me so I accepted that His name could be Yahovah. Briefly they touched on the fact that the ―V‖could also be a ―U‖so that did leave a
window open to what I learned next.
I had called YHWH, Yahweh for so long it was a little difficult to change. I had resisted changing because of the arguments about what it should be, I just refused to listen.
I woke up one morning a few weeks ago and I was going about my business getting ready for the upcoming Passover, thinking about when to get the leaven out of my house. I always couple this activity with repentance so I can get the leaven out of my heart and house at the same time. I also pray for my family during this time of cleansing. I think it is interesting that the Passover is a memorial as is the shalom
offering, and breaking of bread of the meal offering (communion), and the name of YHWH are all memorials and are meant to be remembered always and forever.
Moshe said to YHWH, "Behold, when I come to the children of Yisra'el, and tell them, 'The Elohim of your fathers has sent me to you;' and they ask me, 'What is his name?' What should I tell them?" 14 YHWH said to Moshe, "I AM WHO I AM," and he said, "You shall tell the children of Yisra'el this: "I AM has sent me to you." 15 YHWH said moreover to Moshe, "You shall tell the children of Yisra'el this, 'The YHWH, the God of your fathers, the YHWH of Avraham, the YHWH of Yitzchak, and the YHWH of Ya`akov, has sent me to you.'This is my name forever, and this is my memorial to all generations.
YHWH makes it clear that these memorials are to be sanctified forever unto all generations. There are other things listed as memorials also, like Yahshua‘s breaking of
bread to be done in the remembrance of Him. There is also Passover and the meal offering which represented the memorial that Yahshua re-implemented with His statement. So we should make it a point to remember what the Word says we should do, and try our best to implement it in our lives.
On this morning I kept seeing this mans face that I knew. He was part of our community and was a tree trimmer and had offered to trim my trees a few months back. When he offered I just had this knowing that I should say yes even though we lived far away from where he lived. I thought maybe he was supposed to come and work. However on this day
I couldn‘t stop seeing his face.
So I found the tree trimmers card and called him. We talked about a lot of things from the Word but then he started talking about the Name of YHWH, which was my signal to stop paying attention. This was what I would do when there
were discussions about the name and everyone would insist that they were right. I am a shalom maker, so I just get quiet and phase out of the conversation. He talked about an hour about the name and it caused me to remember things I had heard one of the community leaders and another friend of mine say about the name. He was saying the exact same words they had said a few years back. Even the way they had come to the conclusion about the pronunciation was thesame. I felt it was quite remarkable but still wasn‘t willing to change the decision I had made after watching the teaching by these Hebrew scholars I had seen. So I just tolerated the conversation until he said a phrase that I recognized. In fact I had written a song about it. ‗ay His name and His Kingdom grow‘ was in my song but I knew the counterpart to it from my Bible dictionary that said ‗ay his name and memory be blotted out.‘ This was in reference to the name of ‗eshua‘. It
―in modern Hebrew Yeshua‘s name is pronounced and written Yeshuwhich may have been the ancient pronunciation in the Galil. However reflecting two thousand years of conflict between the church and the Synagogue, it is also an acronym for Yimach sh‘mo v zikhrono = may His name and memory be blotted out. However the late Yosef Vaktor, a messianic Jewish Holocaust survivor, took it as an acronym for Yigdal sh‘mo umalkuto= May His name and His Kingdom grow.‖Yeshu is actually a derogatory term used by the orthodox to blot out His name and His memory, so this reference was already incorrect. Yeshua it said means just ―salvation‖, but Mt 1:21 says His name is supposed to say ―YHWH saves‖
. So I had already, since hearing the name of Yahovah begun to use the name Yah/shua (YAH/ saves) which made more sense to me than just Yeshua.
When I heard the man of shalom who trimmed the trees and talked about the Name of YHWH with great passion talk about this acronym, I got my Bible and looked it up and suddenly it was very clear to me. I had taken this mans
opinion who had written the references in my Bible, over what really was true. I had called the Son of YHWH Yeshuafor 10 years, which meant salvation instead of Yah‘s
salvation. Salvation without YHWH is impossible.
Now what should I do? I really didn‘t know where to go
from here except to pray and repent.
That night I had a very disturbing dream. YHWH talks to me in dreams a lot and has given me a Hebraic mindset to understand them. I feel a kinship to Joseph, not only in his tribe of Ephraim but also in his gifting in dreams. I always do as Joseph did and ask YHWH to reveal it, as I know that He is the true dream interpreter and the giver of the dreams.
Here is the dream: I dreamed that my husband and I were in my house in the living room. We could see out of the kitchen window from there and we saw a very large beast going past the window. We only saw its back and rear end so we had no idea what kind of beast it was. My husband ran out the front door to see what it was and yelled and told me to come and throw him the shoes by the front door to throw at the beast. I picked up the shoes and started to throw them to my husband when I went totally blind. I was in total darkness. I could hear my husband, had the shoes in my hand, but could not throw them as I had no idea where to throw them. It was just black all around and I told my husband ―everything is black and I am completely blind!!‖I stayed blind for 2 full minutes and then my eyesight returned but my eyes were painful around the outside of them. My husband looked at them and said ―you need to hold onto your money because you are going t
o need it‖
I had no idea what he meant and wondered if the blindness was going to return due to glaucoma, and that I was going to need some medical care that would be costly. I came to see different members of my family in the dream and I wondered if they knew I had glaucoma and could go completely blind at any time.
Then we were traveling with a group of people but we were walking on a dirt road with a narrow path. There was a hill beside us with a wall at the top of it. I really wanted to stop and look to see what was on the other side of the wall, but no one wanted to stop, so I just stayed with the group.
We walked single file along the path, but then a huge fat man came from the other direction, he looked as if he weighed 400 lbs., so we had to get off of the beaten path and climb the hill. So I took the opportunity to run to the top and look over the wall.
It was a beautiful valley with all kinds of rocks of every color and shape. Someone else came and joined me and we just stood in awe of the beauty on the other side. The fear of going blind again presented itself as I stood there and my eyes kept hurting.
End of dream.
I awoke in the morning wondering what the dream could mean. I checked my e-mail and someone had sent me a You Tube video of a beautiful song about Yahuah, the very same name that everyone had been saying to me. Then I sat down and got my journal as I knew I had to write down the dream. As I wrote it down the truth came flooding into my heart and I just wept before YHWH.
There is a beast of chaos outside of my house waiting to get in. We needed to throw shalom at him so he would have to go. However due to total blindness I cannot aim the shoes of the preparation of the gospel of shalom in the proper manner to destroy the beast. When the blindness disappeared so did the beast. So it will take the light of the truth to get rid of the beast.
When I have a dream that has a specific word or object in it, I look it up and see what it is, and what it does.
Glaucoma is an eye-related condition that develops due to high pressure within the eye. This pressure is exerted on the optic nerve and as a result the visual signals are not transmitted properly to the brain. Glaucoma affects the vision
and as the condition worsens, it irreversibly damages the optic nerve leading to total loss of vision in the affected eye.
However, as the disease progresses, a person with glaucoma may notice his or her side vision gradually failing. That is, objects in front may still be seen clearly, but objects to the side may be missed.
As glaucoma remains untreated, people may miss objects to the side and out of the corner of their eye. Without treatment, people with glaucoma will slowly lose their peripheral (side) vision. They seem to be looking through a tunnel. Over time, straight-ahead vision may decrease until no vision remains.
So YHWH is showing me that I have a condition that isgiving me tunnel vision. I can‘t see the big picture because there is no peripheral vision. The things straight ahead seem so clear, so other than the small pain in the eye I don‘t notice the fact that I am partially blind and if I don‘t deal with it, I will
eventually go totally blind. In this condition I will not be able to do what needs to be done to defeat the enemy, even with the things that I know are powerful weapons. The (shoes) weapons of shalom will be ineffective due to my blindness of the proper and true name of YHWH which empowers me to launch the power shalom.
Part 2 The journey
/ I am on a narrow path of narrow vision and narrow mindedness and I fail to look at the big picture. I am afflicted with tunnel vision, just following along after others in their tunnel vision. Though I have noticed the fact that there has got to be something over the hill I have failed to look into it. It will take the fatness (anointing of YHWH/ fat belongs to him) to get me off of the narrow minded path of mans opinions. The number 400 also relates to shalom as that is how many times the word is in the Bible. So shalom is sent to turn my feet into the paths of shalom. The fear of total blindness holds me on the path and is ever present to keep me from launching out into the adventure of
looking into the beauty of all of the treasures just over the hill. I was deceived in the past by Babylon so I am fearful of being deceived again. But in so doing I have fallen for the same past mistake of taking mans opinion instead of looking over the wall to see what it really is for myself instead of taking mans opinion.
I cannot properly use shalom as the weapon it was intended to be used for because I am blind to the true name of Yahuwah the powerful name which we must invoke to send the shalom.
The warning of hold on to your money means‗Hold onto the treasures in Torah you need them to keep you from the blindness. The name is hidden there in all of the other names of the prophets and the tribes. Hanging onto the treasure hidden in Torah they will keep you from being deceived and going partially blind with tunnel vision or totally blind
to truth, by refusing to hear it.‘
1)Slow loss of periphereal vision= refusing to see the big picture or listen to the truth.
2)Caused by pressure behind the eye= peer pressure of listening to others opinions and what they see.
3)Pressure destroys the optic nerve= peer pressure of listening to others opinions will eventually destroy your ability to see.
4)Result is tunnel vision= you never see the whole picture.
The anointing of YHWH can get you to the treasures by your being teachable and exploring the treasures of Torah by looking for yourself.
I had taken the words of 2 men who knew the Hebrew language, which I know little of, and in both instances I just trusted that they were correct, never looking for myself.
The biggest problem with this is that it was about the most important weapon we have: The Name of Yahuah. I could see that YHWH had taken me off of the path to look into the
name because it was so important to this message. There is no way I can send shalom without proclaiming the Kingdom.
In Numbers 6 it says:
24May YHWH bless you and keep you.] 25 MayYHWH make his face shine on you and show you his favor.] 26 May YHWH lift up his face toward you and give you shalom.]' 27
"In this way they are to put my name on the people of Isra'el, so that I will bless them."
Three times the name of YHWH is invoked upon the people before the shalom comes to seal it upon them so it will remain. Yahshua taught the disciples to send shalom and proclaim the kingdom. Who
‘s does the kingdom belong to?
Our Father in Heaven
May your name be sanctified
Our Father may your kingdom be blessed
Your will shall be done in Heaven and on earth
Give us our bread continually
Forgive us the debts of our sins
As we forgive the debt of those who sin against us
Do not bring us into the hands of a test
And protect us from evil
For kingship, power and glory are yours forever. Amen
This is the prayer that Yahushua taught the people to pray.
If His name is sanctified, His kingdom can be blessed and His will can be done in Heaven and earth. When these things have been accomplished, then all of our needs will be met, repentance will follow, and the enemy is defeated, and the kingdom is established.
The next morning in mine and myhusband‘s
I began to repent for using the name Yeshua instead of Yahshua, because I learned the yesh is a negative word and Yeshua doesn‘t proclaim the kingdom of Yahuah, it actually seeks to nullify our Yahshua. It leaves out the name YHWH and doesn‘t sanctify or proclaim the Kingdom
I began to weep and had to go into my prayer closet and repent of any damage I had done to His kingdom for the past 10 years of not sanctifying His Holy name and not proclaiming the kingdom just by not saying the name of Yahushua or Yahshua, the way it should be said withYHWH‘s name declaring salvation. I later realized that if I
said shalom in a different way like sholam or solome or any other way than SHALOM it would be powerless! Just as calling on the improper name would be powerless. I wept with sorrow for the truth I had missed. I weep even now because of the blindness and tunnel vision that we have all suffered including myself. Here I had this powerful truth about shalom yet lacked the power to throw the shoe due to blindness to the power of the name. In the dream when the blindness disappeared so did the beast, instantly!
"The word is near you, in your mouth, and in your heart;" that is, the word of faith, which we preach: 9 that if you will confess with your mouth YHWH, Yahshua, and believe in your heart that YHWH raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart, one believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession (covenant) is made unto salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, "Whoever believes in him will not be put to shame." 12 For there is no distinction between Yehudi and Yevanit; for the same YHWH is YHWH of all, and is rich to all who call on him. 13 For, "Whoever will call on the name of YHWH will be saved." 14 How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in him whom they have not heard? How will they hear without a preacher? 15 And how will they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the Good News of shalom, who bring glad tidings of
good things!" 16 But they didn't all listen to the glad news.For Yesha`yahu says, "YHWH, who has believed our report?" 17 So faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of YHWH. 18 But I say, didn't they hear? Yes, most assuredly, "Their sound went out into all the eretz, Their words to the ends of the world."
19 But I ask, didn't Yisra'el know? First Moshe says, "I will provoke you to jealousy with that which is no nation, with a nation void of understanding I will make you angry." 20 Yesha`yahu is very bold, and says, "I was found by those who didn't seek me.
I was revealed to those who didn't ask for me
." 21 But as to Yisra'el he says, "All day long I stretched out my hands to a disobedient and contrary people.
You shall not take the name of YHWH your Elohim in vain, for YHWH will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.
The sound went out into the earth from the ones who preach the good news of the gospel of shalom. Confess with your mouth unto salvation, whoever calls on the name of YHWH will be saved. Yah saves is Yahshua or Yahushua, at this time I believe they both are acceptable.
Here is a brief explanation I found on the internet that basically says what I had been told by 3 different people.
I did the research and even looked at the names in the complete Jewish Bible and how they were said in Hebrew, and there wasYahuah‘s name written again and again right before my eyes. I finally understood that YHWH‘s word says nothing is hidden. His name had seemed to have been hidden for centuries and was lost to us so we didn‘t know
how to invoke the name properly. His name was hidden by the Jews so as to protect it. So it was lost, then it was changed and many tried to restore it, by adding their opinions on how it should sound.
You know the sound is very important. Remember readingall the verses about ―the sound going out‖ the sound is very important; all things are spoken
The name of YHWH was lost and changedhowever the names of the people in Torah and their families never changed over all of the centuries. Many of them had YHWH’s name included in their names. So there it is, simple, not hidden, we were blind; it was there all of the time just like the message of sending shalom before you. Here is a list of names that contain His name in them. Interestingly we already know how to pronounce these names. The simplicity is what I love, as we must become as a child to enter the kingdom. My husband and I always look for the simplest; easiest to understand answer, as we believe the child like attitude is how YHWH teaches us, because Yahshua said ‗f such is the Kingdom of Heaven.‘ PLEASE look for yourself. Don‘t take anyone‘s opinion, not mine or anyone else‘s
. That is what I had to repent of the most was accepting mans opinion again after already coming out of Babylon. So please look into these things and decide for yourself.
By the way I continue to spell His name out as YHWH because I want you to be able to say His name the way you feel comfortable. I am only telling you where YHWH has led me to look over the wall. It is between you and Him if you accept this teaching or not. We are so far from what we knew and believed 10 years ago, I am trying to just remain teachable and still be obedient to what has been revealed to me thus far on my walk with YHWH. Just remember, keepwalking we haven‘t arrived yet. If you think we have arrived,
then you are probably deceived.
This is an excerpt from Bible Revelations website
YAH or YAHU
The 'Personal' Name of the 'God of Israel' by which He anciently revealed Himself to Moses (6:2). 'YAH' is spelt in original Hebrew, with the 10th letter of the Hebrew alphabet - the 'yood', smallest letter in the alphabet, represented by the inverted comma ( ' ). YAHU also has the meaningof „e is YAH'
Obscure Preservation of the Sacred Name 'YAHU'
Hebrew personal names have meanings, and many such personal names have throughout time, been linked to the Sacred Name YAHU. In this obscure way, the Sacred Name YAHU has been preserved for modern times, notwithstanding the fact that it has been almost totally removed from most Bible Translations.
This Name, through recent archeological discoveries in Israel, has been found to be part of more Hebrew words and names than were formerly known. There is an untold number of usages in the Tanach ('Old Testament') where this form of the Sacred Name is used as a conjunction in Biblical names. Some of the more common examples of these are:
NetanYahu (also the name of former Israeli Prime Minister)
and of course, the Messianic Salvation Name YAHU'SHUAH ('Yahshuah')
In each of the examples above, the meanings of these names refer to the Name of the Most High, YAHU is Strength, my God is YAHU, etc.
Similarly, the Tribe of Judah, the progeny of which to this day, still represents the original Hebraic Faith instituted by Moses according to the Divine Mandate which was handed
to him personally by YAHU, God of Israel, some 4000 years ago. All the disasters of Time failed to wipe out the Tribe of Judah, which today is known as 'the Jews' - in Hebrew: Yahudim. The Tribe of Judah, in Hebrew is 'Yahuda', a Jew is 'Yahudi'. While no specific Hebrew meaning is attached to this term in the modern usage, we do find the following meanings as applied to obscure Bible characters with similar names:
'YahuAdah' (YAH unveils) 1 Chron. 8:36
'YahuYadah' (YAH knows) 2 Samuel 8:18, etc.
Can it be that sinister powers have erased the linkage with the 'guardians of His Oracles' (the Jews) to the Name of YAHU? - Rom 3:2 - they, who have been His Testimony to the world all these centuries?
Strange also how, in the modern Hebrew dictionary, three words appear in successive order:
Yehudah - with its derivations referring to Jews
YHVH - the Sacred Name, and Y'SHUAH (abbreviated form for YAHU'SHUAH) - the Messiah's Name.
The original Hebrew or Jewish Name of the professing Jewish Messiah, who was accepted as such by a certain section (some 3000 souls) of Israel, at and after His Appearance in Israel, some 2000 years ago. To them He was known as YAHU'SHUAH (abbreviated: Y'SHUAH, also pronounced YAHOSHUA or YAHSHUA)
The recent much acclaimed computer generated research into repeating patterns or 'secret revealing codes' purportedly contained in the original Hebrew text of the Tanach (Hebrew Bible), revealed hidden codes of the Name Y'SHUAH in all the prophetic sections concerning the promised Messiah.
The 6th Book of the Bible uses the identical Hebrew form, and is translated "Joshua". The most probable authentic form is YAHOSHUA or YAHU'SHUA.
The publishers wish to emphasize that, although the forms YAHVEH (for the God of Israel), and YAHU'SHUAH (for the Messiah) are favored in this edition, we acknowledge most of the other accepted forms. We believe that we should not be dogmatic, since all the various forms which are so dogmatically insisted upon by various interpreters, are merely transliterations of the original Hebrew - which after all, is the only true and exact Name. All the various forms which are presented by Sacred Name promoters and which are the cause of so much confusion are proposed in an earnest endeavor to proclaim the Biblical Sacred Names. This process of representing a word or a name in a different language is called 'transliteration'.
From Bible Revelations website.
The name now seems so simple to me. Here are some others that I found that point us to His name:
Matityahu = Matthew
YoshiYah: Josiah - founded of Yahuah
MiykaYah: Michaiah - who is like Yah?
I know there are many more but I am new at looking over this wall. lol
In conclusion: I would like to say, that I pray you understand how deeply YHWH wants to have a deeper place of intimacy and fellowship with usand how important ―relationship‖is. It is all about relationship with YHWH and our relationship with our brothers and sisters. Remember shalom is for those far off and those nearby but the lukewarm are vomited out of His mouth. Revelation 3:14
"And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write,'These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: 15 I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 For you keep saying, 'I am rich, I have gotten rich, I don't need a thing!' You don't know that you are the one who is wretched, pitiable, poor, blind and naked! 18 My advice to you is to buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich; and white clothing, so that you may be dressed and not have to be ashamed of your nakedness; and eyesalve to rub on your eyes, so that you may see. 19 As for me, I rebuke and discipline everyone I love; so exert yourselves, and turn from your sins! 20 Here, I'm standing at the door, knocking. If someone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he will eat with me. 21 I will let him who wins the victory sit with me on my throne, just as I myself also won the victory and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 Those who have ears, let them hear what the Spirit is saying to the Messianic communities."'"
We must be under the covenantal bond made through the blood of the sacrifice; YHWH will then accept us into His presence.
Remember that there is an established protocol of entryinto YHWH‘s
presence and kingdom through surrender of the fleshly desires, repentance of sins, worship and adoration of Him, and entering the throne- room in the Kingdom of Shalom.
Secondly I pray you realize how important it is for us to send shalom before us before we enter any house as Yahshua instructed. This is for your protection and for thefurthering of YHWH‘s
Kingdom. It is the foundational truth that establishes the Kingdom of YHWH.
Thirdly I pray you will use the weapons given to us with compliance to the manual of instructions given to us to go by. Read it often and follow close to Yahshua. He knows the way.
Fourthly I pray that you will understand the importance of knowing His name and using it properly. For it is the ones who Love Him and Know and sanctify His Holy name that are covered by Yahuah.
Look at Psalms 91:
1 He who dwells in the secret place of Ha`Elyon Will rest in the shadow of Shaddai. 2 I will say of YHWH, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My YHWH, in whom I trust." 3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler, From the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover you with his pinions. Under his wings you will take refuge. His truth is a shield and a buckler
The place of safety from all of the calamities is listed in verses 5-13.
5You will not fear the terrors of night or the arrow that flies by day, 6 or the plague that roams in the dark, or the scourge that wreaks havoc at noon. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand; but it won't come near you. 8 Only keep your eyes open, and you will see how the wicked are punished. 9
For you have
made ADONAI, the Most High, who is my refuge, your dwelling-place.10 No disaster will happen to you, no calamity will come near your tent; 11 for he will order his angels to care for you and guard you wherever you go. 12 They will carry you in their hands, so that you won't trip on a stone. 13 You will tread down lions and snakes, young lions and serpents you will trample underfoot.
e e is he e son h hey e unde Y W ‟ hove ingwings of protection:
14"Because he has set his love on me, therefore I will deliver him. I will set him on high, because he has known my name. 15 He will call on me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble. I will deliver him, and honor him. 16 I will satisfy him with long life, And show him my yeshu`ah (salvation)."
I pray that you will see that we must love Him with all that we are and more than life itself, and if we love Him we will keep His commands and sanctify His name. To do that, we had better know what His name is. By knowing His name of YHWH, we can now call, and He answers, and hovers over us, gives us a long life, and reveals His name to us, in His
Son‘s name. (Yah Saves)
I would like to make clear, the importance of prayer, worship, speaking shalom, and proclaiming the kingdom of YHWH and His name to prepare the earth for Him to enter. We must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth, following the protocol laid out for us in Torah. Abihu and Nadab were seeking the spirit but not walking in the truth. We must worship YHWH as truth worshippers. If we want to see His Glory we had better follow the pattern laid out for us.All of Heaven seems to operate in this preparation protocol of entry.
The truth of YHWH is simple yet inexplicably profound.
These are the things we are being called to do in these last days to increase the harvest of YHWH for the kingdom of heaven, and to still the chaos. Prepare the way my friends!
And how will they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the Good News of shalom, who bring glad tidings of good things!"….18 "Their sound went out into all the eretz (land), their words to the ends of the world."
Shalom shalom aleichem to those far off and to those nearby!' may your feet be beautiful and the sounds of His Kingdom go out into all the lands and to Israel (Yisra’el) and Jerusalem (Yerushalayim) and remain there! May His Holy Name be sanctified forever!
The Atbash for “halom”
by Craig. Peters
We wi ponde he e ew me hod of “sh”—a means of secretly encoding, or decoding, hidden truths in the text of the Torah and Prophets. Afterwards, we will see the word “h om”h s ue, m zing, nd pp op i e sh
message encoded within it.
The Method of Atbash
Atbash is a simple, but amazing code which is easily understood: The first 11 letters of the alef-beit are written in order, from right to left, while the last 11 letters are written beneath, from left to right. This creates an exchange scenario between pairs of letters per the alef-beit‘s inspired
← ← ←
k y j x z w h d g b a
l m n o e p u q r s t
→ → →
Because this pairs the alef with the tav (ta, ―at‖as in ―ott‖ and the beit with the shin (Sb, ―bash,‖as rhyming with ―slosh‖, this exchange method is call ―atbash.‖While weare not saying the atbash decipher/letter exchange may be applied to every Hebrew word, it is also certainly not something to be flippantly dismissed by those who are uninstructed: Under inspiration of Ruach ha‘Qodesh,1 the prophet Yirmeyahu/Jeremiah used atbash to refer to Babel/Babylon. This atbash code may be seen in the word ―Sheshach:‖1
The Set Apart Spirit
15 Fo hus s ys Y W , he E ohim of Yis e , o me “kethis cup of the wine of wrath at My hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send you, to drink it. 16 And they shall drink, and reel to and fro, and be mad, because of the sword that I will send among them. 17 Then took I the cup at the hand of YHWH, and made all the nations to drink, unto whom Y W h d sen me …26 nd he kings of the north, far and near, one with another; and all the kingdoms of the world, which are upon the face of the earth: and the king of Sheshach shall drink after them. 27 And you shall s y o hem, “hus s ys Y W of hos s, he E ohim of Yisrael: Drink and be drunken, and spew, and fall, and rise no more, because of the sword which I will send among you.”28 And i sh e, if hey efuse o ke he cup you h nd o d ink, hen sh you s y o hem, “hus s ys Y W of Hosts: You shall surely d ink.”
Jeremiah 25:15-17, 26-28
Usingatbash, we see that Sheshach
is a code word for Babel/Babylon. And we have provided the decipher pairings below so that readers can see this for themselves:
KSS = Sheshach
lbb = Babel/Babylon
From the atbash code below, it can be seen that the beit ( b ) replaces the shin ( S ) and the lamed ( l ) replaces the caph ( K, k ):
K S S (Sheshach)
l b b (Babel/Babylon)
The Atbash Decipher

Some have proposed that Yirmeyahu was using a ―code name‖for Babel/Babylon to stay out of political trouble andto save his neck. We are not so sure about that, although it may be one reason Sheshach was used earlier in his Inspired prophecies. In any case, at what appears to be a later point in time, the prophet equated
the two as he spoke of both Sheshach and Babel in the very same breath:
41 How isSheshach taken, and the praise of the whole
earth seized! How isBabel become a desolation among the nations!
42 The sea is come up upon Babel; she is covered with the
multitude of the waves thereof.
Since the letter shin ( S ) speaks of destruction, we rather see the code
name ―Sheshach‖(KSS) as being prophetic:
The two shins (SS) of Sheshach (KSS) convey
the double destruction2
which hwhy will bring
upon Babel in His great wrath.
Recall that Yahudah was ready toburn Tamar3 with fire as punishment for her alleged whoredom/harlotry.4 And, in some cases, YHWH would later command burning as the punishment for whoredom in Yisrael.5 So it is no coincidence that YHWH will destroy Babel/Babylon with fire. It will be a terrible, double destruction—
a destruction seen in the two shins (KSS) of Sheshach. We read of this double punishment/destruction in Revelation:
YHWH indicates a double punishment will destroy Babel.
1 After these things I saw another messenger angel down out of heaven, having great authority; and the earth was lightened with his splendor. 2 And he cried with a mighty voice, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, and is become a habitation of demons, and a hold of every unclean spirit, and a hold of every unclean and hateful bird. 3 For by the wine of the wrath of her fornication all the nations are fallen; and the kings of the earth committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth waxed rich by the power of her wantonness. 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come forth, My people, out of her, that you have no fellowship with her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues: 5 for her sins have reached even unto heaven, and Elohim has remembered her iniquities. 6 Render unto her even as she rendered, anddouble unto her the double according to her works: in the cup which she mingled, mingle unto her double. 7 How much soever she magnified herself, and waxed wanton, so much give her of torment and mourning: for she says in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall in no wise see mourning. 8 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 Sovereign YHWH who judges her.
The Word of YHWH is prophetic, revealing that which is, that which was, and that which is to come.6 Thus, when the Spirit of YHWH inspired the two shins (SS) of Sheshach (KSS), He was predicting the double destruction which He would eventually bring upon Babel in the Latter Days, during the time in which His great, burning wrath is made known on all the lawless nations of the earth. This brings us to the atbash for the word ―shalom.‖6
Revelation 1:8, Isaiah 46:9-10
The Atbash for “halom”In Hebrew, the word ―shalom
‖looks like this:
MwlS = shalom = peace
From the atbash code, it can be seen that the beit ( b ) replaces the shin
( S ); the caph ( K, k ) replaces the lamed ( l ); the fe ( p ) replaces the vav ( w ); and the yod ( y ) replaces the mem ( M ):
M w l S
y p k b
The Atbash Decipher
← ← ←
k y j x z w h d g b a
l m n o e p u q r s t
→ → →
While the word ―caph‖(Pk) means palm (of hand) or sole (of foot), the beit is a preposition meaning ―in‖and the yod is a suffix meaning ―my‖and showing possession:
Pk = caph = palm
y pk b
my palm in
So the atbash of ―shalom‖is: ―In My Palm.‖And we truly
have shalom/peace when we know the Sovereign YHWH has us in the palm of His hand and under the shadow of His protective wings. The Prince of Shalom is also the Good Shepherd who holds us in His Hand of Protection:
27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28 and I give them age-abiding life; and they will never perish, and no one shall seize them out of My hand. 29 My Father who has given them to Me is greater than all, and no one can seize out of the hand of My Father. 30 I and the Father are one.
