In his inte... Continue Reading On the ending of the iniquity of the House of Yashar'el Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Thursday, January 12, 2017 at 12:00 AM We begin our discussion with the verse from Yechezq’el: Yechezq’el (Ezekiel) 4:4-5 Lie you also upon your left side, and lay את eth-the iniquity of the house of Yashar’el upon it: according to the number of the days that yo... Continue Reading On the Elect One Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 at 12:00 AM There is yet another a passage found in the Eth CEPHER that is different from every other English translation. Let’s take a look: Luqas (Luke) 9:35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying: This is my yachiyd, the Elect On... Continue Reading On the use of the word "yachiyd" Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Wednesday, January 04, 2017 at 12:00 AM Another wonderful word we have elected to use in the text of the Eth Cepher is the word yachiyd יחיד which in its use declares tremendous meaning. Before we begin with its usage in the Eth Cepher, let’s take a look at some compar... Continue Reading How many years in Mitsrayim? Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Wednesday, December 21, 2016 at 8:45 AM Let us begin with an inquiry into to how many years the house of Yashar’el spent in Mitsrayim (Egypt). Shemoth (Exodus) 12:40-42Now the sojourning of the children of Yashar’el, who dwelt in Mitsrayim, was four hundred and thirty ... Continue Reading There is no Lucifer Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Thursday, December 15, 2016 at 12:00 AM In our decadent, modern world, there are many who claim to be followers of Lucifer. These Luciferian minions (and they are Legion) are convinced they worship the chief fallen watcher – who actually is known by another name, and th... Continue Reading On The Tithe Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Tuesday, December 06, 2016 at 12:00 AM Uh-oh! A discussion on the immutable law of the American Christian Church! Let’s begin with a discussion of this term as it appears in the original Hebrew where the word found is ma’aser. ma’aser - (מַעֲש... Continue Reading What is the Torah? Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Sunday, December 04, 2016 at 12:00 AM Here is a question for the believer that becomes ever more relevant. There appears to be some kind of war between believers in MASHIACH concerning whether or not we are “under the law” or “under grace” and what t... Continue Reading Something further on Philippiym (Philippians) 2:11 Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Sunday, November 27, 2016 at 12:00 AM I am thankful that this issue has been raised between the brethren that clarity might prevail. There is no question that the publishing of the Eth Cepher has opened a new battlefield in the heavens. Apparently, someone is greatly ... Continue Reading Lost Books of the Bible - 4 Ezra Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Wednesday, November 09, 2016 at 12:00 AM As we explore more of the writings lost to the Christian world because they have been omitted from their 66-book Bible, we turn now to one of the most powerful – and beautiful – books of scripture ever penned. We speak of th... Continue Reading On Sha'ul, Paulos and Apollos Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Sunday, November 06, 2016 at 12:00 AM How much of our understanding of the epistles of Paul rests upon this single verse? Ma’asiym (Acts) 13:9 Then Sha’ul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the RUACH HAQADASH, set his eyes on him, We rely on this one verse for... Continue Reading On Chanukkah Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Tuesday, November 01, 2016 at 3:00 PM Let us begin with a translation of this passage from Galatiym as it is actually written in the Greek: Galatiym (Galatians) 4:9-11:9-11 But now, do you not know YAHUAH, or rather are you not known by YAHUAH? How do you return again to the im... Continue Reading And Knowledge Shall Be Increased... Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Sunday, October 30, 2016 at 12:00 AM Daniy'el (Daniel) 12:4 But you, O Daniy’el, shut up the words, and seal the cepher, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Many may ask: are we in the end of the age? And, is there sc... Continue Reading On the doctrine of Arianism Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Tuesday, September 20, 2016 at 12:00 AM We begin with the following question: Mattithyahu (Matthew) 16:13-15 When YAHUSHA came into the coasts of Qeycaryah Philippi, he asked את eth-his Talmidiym, saying: Whom do men say that I the Son of Adam am? 14 And they said: Some say that ...

Continue Reading Lost Books of the Bible - Is the Cepher Yashar genuine? Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Wednesday, August 17, 2016 at 12:00 AM We receive questions from time to time about the Cepher Yashar (Book of Jasher). Many commentators wonder if the book is a true Cepher of the Hebrew tradition, or a construct made up years or even centuries later. However, as we ... Continue Reading The Prayer Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Thursday, August 11, 2016 at 12:00 AM One of the substantial changes made in the Eth Cepher concerns the wording of a certain prayer given by MASHIACH to the talmidiym, who sought counsel as to how to pray, given that Yahuchanon the Immerser had also given a prayer to his talmidi... Continue Reading On the New Moons Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Friday, August 05, 2016 at 12:00 AM As we continue our journey through those things which are required of us in our walk before YAHUAH, let us consider a passage from Sha’ul to the Qolasiym: Qolasiym (Colossians) 2:16-17 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in dri...

One of our first decisions was to include the books of Chan...

It concerns your use of the word kill in lieu of the word murder [in Shemot (Exodus) 20:13]. I would like to know your reasoning for that particular verse. Shemot... Continue Reading And his name shall be called . . . Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Sunday, July 24, 2016 at 12:00 AM We, at the Eth Cepher, have set forth the name of the Messiah (HAMASHIACH) as YAHUSHA. There are several views that are contrary to this position. First, we have those who claim the name of Jesus Christ. I will not discuss t... Continue Reading Who put the “J” in Jesus? Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Wednesday, July 20, 2016 at 12:00 AM Let’s take a moment with the name Jesus, so we have an idea how we got here from the original name. So, let’s begin with the 1611 King James Bible – Authorized Version, beginning in Matthew 1:1: Matthew 1:1 (KJV) Th...
