The myth of Romulus and Remus and the ties to ancient scripture

A recent review of the myth concerning Romulus and Remus evidenced a factual pattern that appeared to me to be a bit conspicuous and repetitive. As a “pattern recognition specialist” (thanks Ashton Lawson), I took a closer look. According to Brittany Garcia, in her post of 18 April 20... Read More

The Scarlet Thread

We begin with a discussion of the scarlet: And Yahuah spoke unto Mosheh, saying: 2 This shall be the Torah of the leper in the day of his cleansing: He shall be brought unto the priest: 3 And the priest shall go forth out of the camp; and the priest shall look, and, behold, if the plague of lepro...

A garment without a seam

  Now Yashar’el loved Yoceph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colors. Bere’shiyth (Genesis) 37:3 וְיִשְׂרָאֵל אָהַב אֶת־יוֹסֵף מִכָּל־בָּנָיו כִּי־בֶן־זְקֻנִים הוּא לוֹ וְעָשָׂה לוֹ כְּתֹנֶת פַּסִּים׃ V’Yas... Read More

Strong's Concordance makes a case for the Sacred Names

Let us take a look at the name Yahuah, but more in depth at the name Yahusha. There is a well-known saying among the modern generations: "Haters gotta hate", and few manifest hatred as well as those who hate the Sacred Names. If you agree that there is in fact a name set forth in scripture f... Read More

Who are the ben’i Elohiym?

  Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying: Of a truth you are the Son of Elohiym. Mattithyahu (Matthew) 14:33 Here is this phrase we see the use of the Greek terms θεου υιος (Theos uios). The practice of the את ... Read More

The Book of Jasher | The Veracity of the Cepher Yashar

  There are those who flat-footedly declare the book of Jasher to be fake, claiming that the book was somehow reverse engineered, using Bible texts that appear to quote from it (and the examples are set forth herein) as just the opposite – that the writer(s) of Yashar somehow quoted the ...

Genetics in Scripture 

As my studies continue, I find the correlation between scripture and the revelation of the science of genetics to be astounding. For instance, we see the very first book of scripture to be identified as Genesis. One deduction, which can be achieved in discernment, is to break this word into two word... Read More

For the Elect's Sake

Today's world is overwhelmed with trouble; but a unique promise is given to the Elect - a promise of hope and not fear; the promise of life and not death. It is for you to know these things and to find solace in the word of Yahuah. The promise made that there would be an Elect is the oldest promis... Read More

22- A Divine Mystery

  As the stream of knowledge increases in the modern world of information, we find new revelation in the ancient scriptures – the manuscripts which contain within them the beauty of the name Yahuah. When we read through these ancient scrolls - these cepheriym - we quickly discover how... Read More

The Reconciliation of Heaven and Earth

  Reconciliation - a mighty word in a fallen world. As we look to the schema that is modern life, can we say we are happy with our current condition? Many things have gone wrong with the world we expected; the world we were promised; the world we thought we knew. But, even as far as our misgi... Read More

Mishkan - The Pattern of the Tabernacle

Much of the discussion in the prophetic community today concerns the ominous idea of a third temple being built - that somehow the sealed and cryptic prophecies of Daniy'el might come to be revealed in our time. How often have we heard that a "third" temple would be built, and that the "antichrist" ... Read More

The Testimonies of An'chi

For the first time, the name title of An'chi shall be raised among you - different from the understanding given by the Masoretes all of those decades ago, and more illustrative than the English interpreters have cared to admit. There is something here - buried within the ancient Ivriyt text - that w... Read More

The Book of Enoch, the Watchers, and Canonicity

One of the interesting things about the את Cepher scriptures is its inclusion of the Cepher Chanoch (Book of Enoch). For those who know of this book, you know that there are actually three books of Enoch.  First is the Cepher Chanoch (Book of Enoch) as found in the Dead Sea Scrolls, which is se... Read More

In Common Subjection to the Faith

While there are many disparities among believers - whether it be the name of the Creator, the Savior, the calendar, the shape of the earth, even the tenets and expectation of the faith - we are yet called to a common understanding. Can we reach that, or will we always be at odds with one another? ... Read More

Ingather - the Fall Feasts of Yahuah

Who doesn't have a question in their heart about what is coming on the earth? It seems as though we are reaching a climax of events, bringing to us yet another shift away from the world we once knew. Our lives and the freedoms we took for granted back during the fall feasts of 2019 have now disappea... Read More

The Wheat and the Tares - a study on the seed of Yashar'el

As we consider the mysteries now being revealed in these End Times, one mystery which rises from the writings of the ancient scribes concerns the promises given to the seed of Yashar'el (Israel). Who is this seed? And what can this possibly mean? Yet, the lineage of Yashar'el is carefully traced, ... Read More

Revelation Revisited: A New Understanding

Over the years, the interpreters of scripture have sought to decipher the cryptic messages of the Cepher Chazon (the Book of Revelation). For many it is possibly the only book of scripture ever read from beginning to end. For others, it remains a mystery as their pastor or church may have forbidden ... Read More

Tisha B'Av - The coming day of destruction

From the time the ancient Yashar'eliym (Israelites) muttered against Yahuah Elohiym, having traveled across the wilderness to find the land of milk and honey only to discover the land occupied by giants - nephiliym and the sons of Anaq - and losing all faith in the one who had parted the sea for the... Read More

The Standards of Yashar'el

There is much to discuss when raising the issue of the house of Yashar’el (Israel). Prophecy was given by Ya’aqov (Jacob); designation was given by Mosheh (Moses); stones were selected and placed for the priest. And importantly, standards were raised over their houses. What were these ... Read More

Apocrypha: To read or not to read

In the emergence of the faith, people find themselves in the company of others with whom they find great discomfort. The Greeks loved the scriptures, but found great discomfort in their associations with those Jews who were keeping the Sabbath. Far better to dissociate with them and put a distance b... Read More

The Stones of Caphire

In the את Cepher Millennium Edition, we make use of the word caphire (pronounced the same as sapphire). Some of you may have questions concerning this, so let’s take a look and see what is going on in the Cepher. We begin with the following: Shemoth (Exodus) 24:9-10 Then went up Mosheh, an...

A Prayer For The Nations

In this time and at this hour, the United States must reconcile itself not only before the one who blessed our creation and who sustained us as a people and a nation, but before our brothers and sisters throughout the world. We have greatly troubled the world since we became the king of the mounta... Read More

The Fall of the House of Babylon

Recently, a tablet was found at the sight of Joshua’s Altar on Mount Ebal near the Palestinian city of Nablus (formerly called Shechem). This tablet was named the “curse tablet” as it contained the word “cursed” ten times. This is a significant sign of the times given t... Read More

The Life of the Soul

What does it mean to be “born again”?  How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? In our born-again metaphor, the soul is likened to an infant at the time of its birth – at the time of the child’s first breat... Read More

The Wrath of Indignation

There is a time of indignation. A time when the whole land will be destroyed. Have we arrived at such a time? There are those who believe that the current course of action will remain efficacious – that which worked before will work again, given the assumption that the path of decadence has... Read More

The Latter Days

The Latter Days – what are they? When are they? What do the prophecies spell for mankind? Is the consistent promise of Yahuah Elohiym present in all of these prophecies? Or is it an extraordinary time of wrath and judgment, where even the elect are chastised and forgotten? Are there particular... Read More

The Darkness of Disbelief

Recently, at the World Humanist Congress and the World Founding Congress of Freethought at Oslo on 19 February 2012, a certain Dr. Vijayam told the audience the following: “There is no force on earth which can stop the onward march of atheism. The growth of science, scientific outlook, and ... Read More

Life After Death

Many of us ask the question: What happens after we die? Some believe there is nothing following this life – just an end to consciousness and a perpetual darkness. This condition is described in scripture and is called “Sheol”. Those who led Judea held various views on this – ... Read More

50 Days - the Counting of the Omer to Shevu'oth

As we look out at a world that grows darker, as the hearts of men grow cold toward one another and the beast system is lifted up over man, one may wonder if any spiritual light remains. As the great apostasy rises in anticipation of the revealing of the man of lawlessness - that man of sin and son o... Read More

The King, the Lawgiver, and the Judge

As we witness the failure of the west and its collapse into a new dark age, many look for a new solution. Some look for a Great Reset; some look for a New World Order; some are simply looking for a bail-out. In all of this, many ask the question: Who shall lead us? Who shall be our guide? Who shall ...

Tongues of Fire: The Baptism of the Ruach Ha'Qodesh among the children of Yashar'el

(This blog has been updated with scriptures from the Millennium Edition את Cepher.) Let’s begin with an understanding of the Ruach Ha’Qodesh (interpreted in English as the Holy Spirit): The phrase Ruach Qodesh’u appears only twice in the Tanakh: Yesha`yahu 63:10 and 63:11. (... Read More

A Covenant With Life

There are many paths a person may take in this life. Sometimes we chose wisely - sometimes we aren't given a choice, but our path is handed to us by another. Sometimes our path is a path of destruction, where we seek death but are too afraid to find it, so we pursue it secretly by means of self-dest... Read More

Make you a Seraph

Mosheh (Moses) seemed to be at odds with Yahuah - arguing with him about whether he was called to lead the house of Yashar'el (Israel) out of Mitsrayim (Egypt) and into the promised land, striking the rock twice and so on. But hidden deep in the Ivriyt (Hebrew) text is an example of his disobedience... Read More

Building Yerushalayim - the call to the remnant in the changing world

We are now entering into a very trying time - maybe the greatest trial the world has ever faced. Normal has left the building, and what knocks at the door is chaos, war, plague, and famine. For those trapped in Babylon, the future has been well-predicted as its destruction will come in a single hour... Read More

The End Has Come - The prophecy of Ezekiel 7

The time has come to review some of the most difficult prophecy found in scripture - a prophecy which reflects the perfect judgment of the Creator in his good measure. Ezekiel has something specific to say about this matter, particularly in Chapter 7, which will be discussed here. But there is a s... Read More

9-11: The prophecy of the coming affliction

As we consider the events unfolding in this world, we might ask whether there are prophecies which speak to these times. 9-11 speaks to these times still, as the affliction began with our adoption of the curse found in Yesha'yahu (Isaiah) 9:10. We claimed it then, and we claim even today with "...

Beliya'al Revealed - The conclusion of the matter

The forensic investigation continues! In this discussion, we will review additional facts which will lead to an entirely new conclusion! Methinks you will be shocked when all of the cards are put on the table! In this investigation, we will look at the testimony and try to determine who actually g... Read More

Sons of Beliya'al - A crime scene investigation

One of the greatest crimes in history is documented in the Cepher Shofetiym (the Book of Judges); and one of the most tragic acts of revenge would follow. But was it justified? What do we know about the Sons of Beliya'al? Did Binyamin lie about the involvement? Were the sons of Beliya'al of the tr... Read More

Gog and Magog - The Battle of the Times of the End

Have we arrived at the prophecy of Yekhezq'el (Ezekiel) 38 and 39? Can we look to find Gog and Magog? Is our age-old understanding of this prophecy even correct? Do we really know who is Israel? And what is the land of unwalled villages? Are there other prophecies throughout scripture which can give... Read More

The Seasons - A study on the Appointed Times

As we continue our journey of discovering the calendar, one of its purposes is to determine the timing of the Appointed Feasts of Yahuah. We will explore in much more detail the scripture related to the timing of the first of the year, and how to find the months set forth in scripture. There may be ... Read More

The Rhythm of Life - Part 2

When should we be keeping the Sabbath? Does it depend on a solar calendar? A lunar calendar? A soli-lunar calendar? What do the scriptures say about the Sabbath? Once we determine such a thing, when does the Sabbath start during the day? Does it start on the preceding evening? Or the following morni... Read More

The Rhythm of Life - Part 1

One question which arises among the community of believers is the question of the calendar. Is there a biblical approach to the calendar? If so, what are the foundations of such a calendar? Are these things possible to discover with a closer look at scripture? Let's examine the Ivriyt (Hebrew) anew ... Read More

The Adversary

Why do bad things happen to good people? Why do we find adversity in this world? If we are loved by Yah, why aren't we in a continual comfort zone? Why is there struggle in this life? It is time to look at both the day and the night, the good and the evil, the righteous and the unrighteous. Click ... Read More

Two Nations

It is written: "Two nations are in your womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from your generation." And so the prophecy of the Two Houses of Ya'aqov (Jacob) and Esau would set forth a course of history which would lead us to the curious place we find ourselves now. We have explored th... Read More

The House of Esau

When it comes to Esau, what do we really know? And what of his descendants - did they simply disappear? Can we identify who they were and where they went? Maybe. Let's take a closer look at the House of Esau and see what we can find.  Click here to watch the video teaching, download the sli... Read More

Faith! Not Fear

While the world may tell us to fear and to be afraid, we are not called to do so. Instead, we are called to live our lives through faith. For it is written: He is good, and his mercy endures forever! Now is not the time for us to cower in fear - neither should we make decisions out of fear, for fe... Read More

Swear seven oaths

  Recently, a friend of the Cepher wrote as follows: I have been very curious about the "swearing seven oaths" phrase throughout Bere'shiyth.  One example is chapter 47 verse 31: And he said, Swear seven oaths unto me. And he swore seven oaths unto him. And Yashar'el bowed himse... Read More

Seasons come and seasons go - but to everything there is a season. And what is the season of our times? Is there a scriptural similarity we should look to? What is the call to the believer?

Mattithyahu (Matthew) 12:8 - Why is the Cepher so different?

Recently, a friend of the Cepher wrote and said, “I’m trying to understand why this verse is vastly different than many other translations.” Let’s take a look: For Yahuah is the essence, and the Shabbath; the Son of A’dam. Mattithyahu (Matthew) 12:8  In compa... Read More

Did Miryam name her child Esau?

This post is a result of a discussion held on during a Sabbath meeting in October, when we had the opportunity to discuss the Ivriyth text minus the Masoretic vowel points to get an idea as to what was really being said.

A Response to the Criticism “What is the Cepher Bible?”

A critic of the Cepher™ asks the question: "What is the Cepher Bible?" Of course, they answer their own question, and their analysis is worthy of discussion. The reduction of the books available to the average reader of scripture from the robust selection of manuscripts generally available ... Read More

The Lost Books of the Bible

Because we publish more than 66 books in the Cephertm, we are often accused of "adding to the word".  Nothing could be further from the truth, and that statement simply reveals the accuser's lack of understanding as to the context of the commands given in Devariym (Deuteronomy) 4... Read More

Regarding Circumcision: Is it Really?

As we near the Pecach, the command to be circumcised has come before the Qodeshiym, asking: Is it necessary to be physically circumcised as it is understood in the modern world?

The fall of Satan to the earth

This is a great question that has concerned m... Read More

Does Elohiym mean gods?

It is often claimed by those with a rudimentary understanding of the Ivriyt (Hebrew) language that the word – or title, if you will – Elohiym (אֱלֹהִים) means gods. The logic is that the word El is finalized with the masculine plural suffix iym, therefore it means gods. However, we wil... Read More

Blessing and cursing in scripture

Recently a friend of the Cepher wrote us concerning an interesting phrase found in the Cepher Iyov (the book of Job).  Here is the verse: Iyov (Job) 2:9 Then said his woman unto him, Do you still retain your integrity? Bless Elohiym, and die. Most texts read “curse God and die”... Read More

Cepher Chanoch: On the veracity of the Book of Enoch

We have elected to include the Cepher of the Prophet Chanoch (also known as 1 Enoch) within the confines of the את CEPHER.

Aleph Tav: Ethics and Morés in the Torah

  Let us begin our review with a bit of usage of the Aleph-Tav as described in the Strong’s Concordance. Eth (אֵת) (Strong’s H853); properly, self (but generally used to point out more definitely the object of a verb or preposition, such as even or namely):—[as such unrepr... Read More

Linen yarn?

Receive ye the Ruach Ha'Qodesh

  As discussed previously, we at the Eth Cepher hold to the proposition that the Brit Chadasha was conceived initially in the Ivriyt, and for whatever reason, translated into the Greek and the Aramaic.

The Languages of the New Testament

  One of the assumptions we have taken at the Eth Cepher, is that all scripture was conceived in Ivriyt, which we understand in modern terms as Hebrew.  There are those who disagree, claiming that the Brit Chadasha (New Testament) was breathed in Aramaic, or Greek, or even Latin. The A... Read More

The twenty-two mysteries of the New Testament (Brit Chadasha)

  For those of you who continue to espouse the notion that Yovheliym (Jubilees) is not an inspired work, you may have to also denounce the gospel of Luqas (Luke). Luqas (Luke) 3:35-36 Which was the son of Serug, which was the son of Re`u, which was the son of Peleg, which was the son of Ebe... Read More

The Kingdom called Qumri

Arabs in scripture: Not the sons of Yishma`el (Ishmael)

The Death Penalty in Scripture

  It is time to address the difficult issue of the death penalty in scripture.  For the Torah Observant community, this issue is omnipresent, as many who seek to come under the 613 mitsvoth identified by Maimonides and who identify themselves with these mitsvoth by wearing the tsiytsith ...

Yashar'el? Or I'shar'el? Which is it?

The nikkud violates the Torah

Kabbalah is spiritual ignorance.

  Kabbalah is two-dimensional spiritual ignorance; but, as ignorant as it is, it is not as ignorant as those who claim to know about it and go on to denounce it. As Otto von Bismarck supposedly said (paraphrase): Law and sausage are two things you do not want to see being made.   ... Read More

Yehovah - Examining the nikkud

Blessed is he who comes in the name of Yahuah (with video).

The Synagogue Beneath

Recently, an underground synagogue for the nascent Sanhedrin has been revealed, built under the Western Wall.  This synagogue contains 72 seats for the elders of Israel, and 24 for the acolytes.

More on the Resurrection

  Having spent some time on the word alah (עלה), we reached three conclusions: 1) that Alah is the condition of the he-lamb without blemish; the Rising Smoke of the Firstfruits Offering; 2) that Alah is the condition of the ascended Mashiach from the grave; and 3) Alah is the condition of the...

Firstfruits and the Resurrection

  As we discuss the feasts (moediym) of the Spring (also called the latter rain), we need to take a look at one of the great mysteries of the gospel; i.e., the resurrection.  Can we find the foundation for this in the Torah?  Was the resurrection part of the divine plan of creation?... Read More

The Passing of the Iniquity of Yashar'el

  Recently, a friend of the Eth CEPHER wrote and asked as follows: I am trying to keep up with your "On the Mark" presentations, but am a little behind.

The Tyranny of the Noahide (Noachide) Laws (with video)

Passing through the fire to Molek

The Shekinah Glory

  A friend of the Eth CEPHER writes, “What exactly is Shekinah glory?” Although this term “Shekinah” is tossed around in Christian and Messianic communities, the word that is actually at work here is the word (שָׁכַן) shâkan (Strong’s H7931) (Shekinah bei... Read More

The nature of the Houses of Yashar'el

When we discuss the origins of the tribes of Yashar’el, we can look to three scriptural references that discuss the nature of the Patriarchs: the history of the giving of their names; the blessing of Ya’aqov on his sons; and the blessings of Mosheh on the tribes.  Let’s begin:... Read More

Is there evidence of Chimera in Scripture?

Before we get too far into this discussion, we should probably get an idea about this word chimera.  According to one definition, a Chimera chi·me·ra (in Greek mythology) is a fire-breathing female monster with a lion's head, a goat's body, and a serpent's tail, although Merriam W... Read More

The Advent of HA'MASHIACH

  It is with interest that the Cepher Baruk (Baruch) Sheniy (also called the Apocalypse of Baruk (Baruch)) should be revealed at this time and included in the Eth Cepher, for it is an end-times prophecy. Let’s consider one chapter in particular: Baruk (Baruch) Sheniy (2 Baruk (Baruch)... Read More

The Brazen Serpent on a Pole

YAHUAH: The Name of the God of Israel

Amongst Messianic believers, "God" or "Yahweh" is mainly referred to as "Lord". Jesus, however, is referenced as “Yeshua” (ye-SHOO-a, not YESH-ua). There is also now a growing movement which prefers the name YEHOVAH. The God of Israel's name is revealed by the RUACH HA’QODES... Read More

Zionism - Do today's Jews have a right to the Adamah Qodesh (Holy Land)?

Fulfilling the Torah (Law)

Who are the people called by his name?

  In the Eth CEPHER, we have set forth the sacred name in an English transliteration intended to impart the name to those who do not speak Ivriyt (Hebrew).  The Ivriyt reader can readily discern the name while reading scripture, but the English speaker has been given LORD, Lord, or lord ...

Who are the three frogs?

  We begin with an interesting passage: Luqas (Luke) 11:11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone?

Is the globe referenced in scripture?

  The question to address today is whether the idea of a globe is ever found in scripture.  If so, where is it found, and what information can we obtain by looking at this? We begin with the Hebrew word tebel (תֵּבֵל) (Strong's H8398).  This word is generally interpreted as the ea... Read More

Does Job 37:18 support a flat earth theory?

The circle of the earth

As we begin our discussion of round earth versus flat earth, one text is used to declare that the earth is disk-like rather than spheroidal.

The Circumcision and Galatiym (Galatians) 5:2

  In the Eth CEPHER, we have traditionally used the word Yisra’el for the word found in the text which is spelled in the Hebrew (יִשְׂרָאֵל).  However, this is soon going to change.  We have elected to make this restoration in the text based on several witnesses, but let&rsquo... Read More

Why Isn't His Name Emmanuel?

  While we are debating how to pronounce the name of the Messiah – is it Yeshuah, Yashuah, Yahoshua, Yahushua, Yahusha, or something else entirely – we have this little issue concerning prophecy in Yesha’yahu (Isaiah) which is echoed in Mattithyahu (Matthew)1. Yesha’... Read More

The ending of the iniquity of the House of Yashar'el

  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 you shall lie upon it you shall bear their iniqui... Read More

The Elect One

  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 One: hear him. Let’s compare: Wycliffe ... Read More

The use of the word "yachiyd" (with video)

  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 comparison Scriptures: Genesis 22:2 Wycliffe Bible (... Read More

How many years in Mitsrayim?

  Let us begin with an inquiry into to how many years the house of Yashar’el spent in Mitsrayim (Egypt). Shemoth (Exodus) 12:40-42 Now the sojourning of the children of Yashar’el, who dwelt in Mitsrayim, was four hundred and thirty years. 41 And it came to pass at the end of the... Read More

There is no Lucifer (with video)

  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 they believe that their leader Lucifer is identifie... Read More

Regarding The Tithe

  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 -  (מַעֲשֵׂר) (Strong’s H4643); a masculine noun f... Read More

What is the Torah?

  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 that means.  It is time to take a look at the... Read More

Something further on Philippiym (Philippians) 2:11 (with video)

  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 upset with the work, and more importantly, greatl... Read More

Lost Books of the Bible - 4 Ezra

  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 the Cepher 2 Esdras (printed within the b... Read More

Sha'ul, Paulos and Apollos

  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 the proposition that Sha’ul was also ca... Read More

The observance of Chanukkah

  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 impotent and indigent ordered rudiments? Would yo... Read More

And Knowledge Shall Be Increased...

  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 scriptural support for such a proposition? Consid... Read More

The doctrine of Arianism

  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 you are Yahuchanon the Immerser: some, Eliyahu;...

Lost Books of the Bible - Is the Cepher Yashar genuine?

  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 read through Yashar, we find a very interesting ... Read More

The Prayer

  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 talmidiym.  The response was as follows: Mattithy...

The New Moons

  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 drink, or in respect of a feast day, or of the New... Read More

The Mechanics of Yahusha’s (Joshua's) long day

  We at the Cepher Publishing Group have been greatly blessed by the leadings of the RUACH HAQODESH, and the guidance as to what to publish within the bindings of the Eth CEPHER.  One of our first decisions was to include the books of Chanoch (Enoch), Yovheliym (Jubilees), and Yashar (Ja...

You shall not kill

  Ray asks us: I have for some time now had a nagging curiosity in my mind. 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 (Exodus) 20:13 / Devariym (Deuteronomy) 5:17 ... Read More

And his name shall be called . . .

  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 this issue in this blog.  Next, we have those... Read More

Who put the “J” in Jesus?

  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) The booke of the generation of Iesus Christ, the... Read More

I come in the name of the Father

  The longer discussion among pursuers of the faith concerns this relationship between YAHUSHA and YAHUAH.  Let’s begin with this text: Yahuchanon (John) 5:43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. So... Read More

For those in the diaspora

  A reader asks, “If the instruction is for Tsiyon to flee from the land of the north, where Tsiyon had been spread (the diaspora), and we can’t return to the Levant, where should we go?” Zakaryahu (Zechariah) 2:6-13 Alas, alas, come forth, and flee from the land of the ... Read More

The Crown 

  When reviewing various texts of scripture, one word that we find in the English is the word crown. However, there are several words in the Hebrew and the Greek that all fit the bill for the word crown in the English.  Let’s take a look and see if we can discover what it is that i... Read More

Lost Books of the Bible: On the Enoch Calendar

A Crown of Thorns?

Lost Books of the Bible: The Septuagint and MASHIACH

  In our studies, we have taken the position that the name of MASHIACH is YAHUSHA, and nothing other.  There are many however who will argue that, no, the name is YESHUA which means salvation, or the name is YAHUSHUA or YAHOSHUA, all which reference the name (in English) Joshua.  (S... Read More

I am the vine, you are the branches

  This is a posting of which I am greatly fond, for this is the subject of gospels, and really a new revelation for me in respect of certain scriptures upon which I have relied with . . . well, I would call it a previous misunderstanding.  Let us begin here: Yahuchanon (John) 15:1-5 ... Read More

I AM the Aleph and the Tav

  Recently, someone asked me about the Aleph and Tav, and in particular, about the appearance of the Aleph Tav in Genesis (Bere’shiyth) 1:1. She asks: Do these represent YAHUSHA?

Debunking Daniel's 70th Week - Part Two

Debunking Daniel's 70th Week - Part One

  There is a theory, and I think that is the best word for it, that the prophecy set forth in Daniel 9 was realized where 69 weeks were completed at the time of first coming of the Son of Man (Ben Adam), but that the 70th week described in Daniel 9:24 is somehow put off into the future to b...

The Commandments - Part Three

  We have seen the practices of MASHIACH to keep the feasts declared as statutes forever in Vayiqra (Leviticus) 23, and we have seen how the American church has misconstrued the words of Sha’ul (Paul) to declare the feasts and the declaration concerning clean foods as expired. However... Read More

The Commandments - Part Two

  We have seen the spiritual condition of those who transgress the Torah, who work wickedness and evil, the pa’ali aven.  What is the alternative? Mattithyahu (Matthew) 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, immersing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and o... Read More

The Commandments - Part One

As we begin this study, many who are resident in the American church may have great difficulty with the notion that they are called to the keeping of the commandments.  Many believers have been instructed in a form of grace which acts as a license to sin and the working of iniquity, which is la...

  Enter the counterfeiter – he clusters himself with some of the stones in an imitation of the priesthood, yet it is incomplete. Yekhezq’el (Ezekiel) 28:11-19 Moreover the Word of YAHUAH came unto me, saying, 12 son of Adam, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tsor, and say... Read More

The Blood Moons: Part Two – The Twelve Stones of Fire

  Now again, we have the instruction concerning the gathering of twelve stones. Devariym (Deuteronomy) 27:1-4 And Mosheh with the elders of Yisra’el commanded את eth-the people, saying, Guard את eth-all the commandments which I command you this day. 2 And it shall be... Read More

The Blood Moons: Part One - The Breastplate of Judgment

  Mark Biltz’s discovery of the timing of the lunar eclipses on biblical feast days is an important one.  Although the question of when and the prophecy’s applicability to modern prophecy is much discussed, the meaning of the eclipses – and in particular the sequences w... Read More

The timing of the Crucifixion

  Let’s review the timing of the Pecach.  This begins on the 14th day of the month in the evening.  Of course, on YAH’s calendar, the day always begins at sundown.  Let’s review the fundamentals: Bere’shiyth (Genesis) 1:14 And ELOHIYM said, Let there... Read More

The timing of Pecach (Passover)

  A question continues to arise as to the timing of the moed called Passover or Pecach.  Any time the issue of the calendar arises, so many challenges are raised as to the calculation of the day.  One commentator has gone so far as to say that the establishment of the calendar can o... Read More

Understanding Prophecy

  If, as a pastor or disciple of sacred scripture, a decision has been made to actually study prophecy, there may be many other questions as to how to go about obtaining the best understanding of prophecy. We begin then with the following understanding: Devariym (Deuteronomy) 29:29 ... Read More

The Private Interpretation of Prophecy

  Kepha Sheniy (2 Peter) 1:20 It is written that knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. This phrase is certainly worthy of discussion. Pursuant to this phrase, no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. This rules ... Read More

The Study of Prophecy

  The Barna Research Group discovered in the year 2003 that 98% of those who call themselves  Christians in the United States and 96% of their pastors do not believe that prophecy is worth knowing or studying. Why should we read prophecy, if it always results in divergent opinion?&... Read More

Romaiym 7 – What is Sha’ul actually saying? Part 2

  Let us continue to peruse the writing in Romaiym (Romans) 7.  From verse 2 through verse 6, given the context of the discussion, we have elected to replace the word law, typically used in place of the Greek nomos, with the word mitzvah, meaning a singular command.  Romaiym (... Read More

Romaiym 7 – What is Sha’ul actually saying? Part 1

  We often wrestle with the words we find in the Greek Stephanus Textus Receptus, particularly when reviewing the writings in the epistles.  Sha’ul (Paul) can prove to be very difficult.  For instance, let’s take a walk through Romaiym 7.  In this chapter, we foun... Read More

Who is Midyan?

  It is worth our time here to consider the slaughter of Midyan, is it not?  Who is Midyan, and when did this slaughter occur? Bere’shiyth (Genesis) 25:1-2 And again Avraham took a woman, and her name was Qeturah. 2 And she bore him את eth-Zimran, and את eth-Yoqshan, ... Read More

The duration of the ministry of HAMASHIACH

  I have been asked the question if the ministry of the Messiah (HaMashiach) lasted about a year?  The short answer is “no”. I have written about the timing of the birth and the life of YAHUSHA, which I will summarize it here.  According to scripture, first conside... Read More

The Feast of Pecach (Passover)

  One disciple of scripture has asked a very good question concerning the timing of the crucifixion.  She writes, “When Matthew 26:17, Mark 14:12, and Luke 22:1 begin speaking about the crucifixion of Yeshua, it states that it was the first day of unleavened bread.  Now accord... Read More

The blessing of Leviy and Yahudah

  One of the most significant prophetic scriptures which have come to influence the ways of the Western World is the blessing of Ya’akov on his twelve sons found in Bere’shiyth (Genesis) 49.  So many of the patterns set forth there have worked in the way foretold for all of... Read More

Daniye’l and the Return of Babylon

  There is a great book that was published in the 19th Century called The Two Babylons.  In this book, there is a discussion that examines the question of two Babylons.  Let’s see if there is scriptural support for this proposition, and what we might be able to determine. ... Read More

The King of Babel and the Repha’iym

  For those of you who have followed this blog for some time and have read the posts about the War to Come, we now enter into territory in our discussion of the Repha’iym which may have a current application, as the prophecy of Yesha’yahu is made manifest in our world following th... Read More

The Souls of the Giants - Part 5

  Again, we are talking about the last eight passages of scripture where the traditional translations have used the word dead in place of the Hebrew word Repha’iym.  A few passages have been discussed already, and a few remain: Mishlei (Proverbs) 9:13-18 A foolish woman is clam... Read More

The Giants - Part 4

  As referenced in the last post, there are eight times when the word Repha’iym is not interpreted as giants in the preexisting English translations, Strong’s giving a second number to an identical Hebrew word to accommodate the difference. Let’s take a look at some of the o... Read More

The Giants - Part 3

  One of the things that has become more evident within the confines of the Eth Cepher, is the discussion of the Nephiliym, a word which appears in the Hebrew many times in the early books of Moshe (Moses) and Yahusha (Joshua). Bere’shiyth (Genesis) 6:4 There were Nephiliym in the e... Read More

The Giants - Part 2

  The giants referred to in Bere’shiyth, and described with more particularity in the cepher Chanoch (book of Enoch), Yovheliym (book of Jubilees), and referenced in Kepha Sheniy (2 Peter) and Yahudah (Jude), are those giants that were present before the flood, in the antediluvian perio... Read More

The Giants - Part 1

  It is time to crack the nut, so to speak.  We begin with a passage in the cepher Chanoch (the Book of Enoch): Chanoch (Enoch) 8:1-15 It happened after the sons of men had multiplied in those days that daughters were born to them, elegant and beautiful. 2 And when the Watchers, the ... Read More

The practice of Puriym (Purim)

  First, let us ask ourselves who are these people who should be practicing this feast of Puriym?  Additions to Ecster (Esther) 5:8 There is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the people in all the provinces of your kingdom; and their Torah is diverse from all peop... Read More

The wisdom of Artachshasta in Additions

  One of the beauties of having transliterated the text to restore the actual names is that sometimes we come up with a nearly unpronounceable transliteration.  This is the case with Artachshasta, formerly known as Artaxerxes (which had eventually become pronounceable).  He is the o... Read More

Observing Puriym (Purim)

  This coming week brings in a very interesting time – the feast of Puriym (Purim, in the traditional spelling).  While there is plenty of discussion concerning this feast, the fast of Ecter (Esther), and the story of Haman, how much do we really know about Puriym?  Let&rsqu... Read More

The two trees

  We have discussed the stauros pendiculum, the stauros being the stake fixed in the ground, and the pendiculum the cross beam which would make the tree in the shape of the Paleo Hebrew Tav, and the Greek Tau.  And in looking into the prophecy of Yekhezq’el 37, we discover that t... Read More

Salvation by the blood shed on the cross

  As we discuss the shed blood of the lamb of YAHUAH, let us consider the full scope of the work on the cross. Yahuchanon Rishon (I John) 2:1-2 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, YAHUSHA HAMASH... Read More

The Passover Lamb

  Let us discuss for a moment the propitiation of the work on the cross – the stauros pendiculum – and its meaning for those of us who gather under it. Vayiqra (Leviticus) 17:11 For the life (nefesh) of the flesh (basar) is in the blood (dawm): and I have given (natan) i... Read More

Retaining the word “cross”

  We have two words to deal with here, in regard to the controversial term, cross.  In the Greek these words are stauros and stauro’o. Let’s start with the word stauro’o, which in most applications is a verb, and it is the word which is interpreted as crucify or c... Read More

Our changes in Mattithyahu (Matthew) 28:1

  Recently, a question has been raised concerning the translation of the verse Mattithyahu 28:1. Initially, in the first edition of the את Eth Cepher, the verse read as: In the end of the Sabbath, as it began to draw near toward the first day of the week, came Miryam of Mi... Read More

The war to come – Amoc speaks concerning Yisra’el

  As we continue on in the discovery of this prophecy concerning that which will befall the house of Yisra’el in the latter days, let us now review the words of Amoc. Amoc (Amos) 2:6-8 Thus says YAHUAH; For three transgressions of Yisra’el, and for four, I will not turn ... Read More

The divorce of Yisra’el

  As we have discussed just previously, the remarrying of a spouse who was divorced is considered an abomination under the word of YAHUAH.  Let’s consider the words of Yermiyahu in regard to the house of Yisra’el. Yermiyahu (Jeremiah) 3:1 They say: If a man put away... Read More

The abominations of Yisra’el

  We have seen that the house of Yisra’el – Yasharon – also provoked YAHUAH to anger with abominations. Let’s take a look at this word abomination, the practice of which brings on the anger of YAH, remembering that in this case, we are talking about abominations (the... Read More

The war to come – Moshe’s warning to Yisra’el

  We have discussed the order of Amoc, which is rather systematic in its discourse, describing a prophecy which begins two years after the great earthquake, and when the habitation of the shepherds mourn and Karmel withers. In modernity, can we associate this with the great quake in Jap... Read More

The war to come – judgment on Yisra’el

  We have discussed the harbingers associated with those people who have claimed the declaration: “the bricks have fallen, we will rebuild with hewn stones;” i.e., the house if Yisra’el. Yesha’yahu had much to say about this judgment, but he is not alone. Here are th... Read More

The war to come – then comes Yahudah

  Of course, this is a difficult prophecy, for few in Israel wish to hear what is said here.  The rabbis know, however, and the people in Tel Aviv deny, but Amoc is clear.  Yahudah will not escape that which comes. Who is Yahudah?  It is anomalous that Yahudah should call... Read More

The war to come – Jordan follows Edom

  The discussion in the Cepher Amoc concerning a nation we now call Jordan is a two-fold discussion, because Jordan is a two-fold nation; the joining of Ammon (northern Jordan) and Mo’av (southern Jordan).  Therefore, two prophecies are present in Amoc.  Amoc (Amos) 1:13... Read More

The circumcision of the heart

  What does it mean to have a circumcised heart? At the bare minimum it means not to be stiffnecked.  What does it mean to be stiffnecked if it doesn’t mean refusing to hear the word of YAH? But it means even more, as at its root is the failure to fear YAHUAH, to hold him in awesom... Read More

The war to come – Edom follows Tyre

  As we walk through the judgments set forth in Amoc, we find that the events appear to be following in order.  Karmel withered, the habitation of the shepherds mourned, the judgment comes on Damascus, then Gaza, then Tyre (Tsor), . . then Edom. Amoc (Amos) 1:11 Thus says YAHUA... Read More

John 3:16

  Maybe the most important passage in all scripture for those of us who cling to the tsiyttsiyt of YAHUSHA; who claim the blood of his sacrifice; who claim the propitiation of his mercy seat; and who worship the Creator in spirit and in truth, following his way, his truth and his life. ... Read More

The war to come – the house within a house

  As we have discussed earlier in the post The war to come – who is Babylon?, Babel has more than one meaning. Because there are two beits (Bs), we have a symbol of two houses – the house of Ba’al and the house of EL.  In one instance, the house of EL is captive or ex... Read More

The war to come – the fate of the one called the Assyrian

  As our discourse continues on what lies ahead for the house of Yisra’el – those who have pronounced the declaration “the bricks have fallen . . .” – the prophecy of Yisha’yahu takes time to discuss a person he calls the Assyrian. Yesha’yahu (I... Read More

The war to come – his hand is stretched out still.

  Let us now consider the judgment that comes upon those who make the decrees within this land of Yitzra’el, which is set forth in the 10th chapter of Yesha’yahu: Yesha’yahu (Isaiah) 10:1-4    Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write ... Read More

The war to come – the judgment following 9/11

  While others have expanded on the relationship between the shemitah year and harbingers, our discussion will concentrate on the words that are found in the scriptures themselves, in order that we might come to see that which lies ahead.  Each judgment of YAH is circumscribed with the... Read More

The war to come – the 9/11 prophecy

  The word harbinger has moved into the vernacular as a meaningful part of the conversation concerning the traumatic events of September 11, 2001, commonly known as 9-11.  This word is now associated with the shemitah (sabbatical) year, or the seventh year in the cycles of years. T... Read More

The war to come – who is Babylon?

  We, at the Eth Cepher, refer to Babylon as Babel, which is consistent with its Hebrew name, which is spelled beit, beit, lamed (BBL).  This name has its own intrinsic meaning.  The letter beit is the letter which means 'the house' (and is the word for house, such as Beyt... Read More

The war to come – the second exodus

  An interesting discussion follows the judgment of Yisra’el in America under the Assyrian as discussed in Yesha’yahu 9 and 10.  Yesha’yahu (Isaiah) 11:1-9 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Yishay, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: 2 ... Read More

The war to come – the judgment of Edom

  Our prophecy of the war to come as set forth in the Cepher Amoc continues: Amoc (Amos) 1:11 Thus says YAHUAH; For three transgressions of Edom, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because he did pursue his brother with the sword, and did cast off all pity, a... Read More

The war to come – the former and latter rain

  Of course, the feast days of YAHUAH are critically important to our understanding of prophecy.  Let me go so far to say that when it comes to understanding the words of the prophets, I do not believe it possible to fully comprehend these writings without adherence to the Torah of YAH... Read More

The war to come – Tyre follows Gaza

  Karmel has withered.  Damascus has come under judgment.  Gaza has come under judgment.  What follows, according to Amoc? Amoc (Amos) 1:9 Thus says YAHUAH; For three transgressions of Tsor, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they deliv... Read More

The war to come – Gaza follows Damascus

  We have seen now that Amoc has predicted that Karmel would wither and the shepherds would mourn.  After that, Damascus would come under judgment.  This prophecy has unfolded before our very eyes.  What follows? Amoc 1:6-8 Thus says YAHUAH; For three transgressions o... Read More

The war to come – the transgressions of Damascus

  Amoc gives us a specific order of events following the withering of Karmel.  Don’t read ahead, or you will have a clear idea of what is coming.  Let’s take it one step at a time. Amoc 1:3-5 Thus says YAHUAH; For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four,... Read More

The war to come – Karmel withers

  We interrupt this blog post to bring you a prophecy update concerning the impending third world war.  Please check your Eth Cepher to corroborate the information given here, and compare with recent world events as set forth herein. There is much discussion about an upcoming Psalm... Read More

OlivetJournal.com - Prophecy & Truth Forum

  We have been accused by an unnamed person on a website called the Olivet Journal, asserting the Eth Cepher is “blasphemous” among other miscellaneous accusations.  First, we begin with the premise that the post is written anonymously, so this is how we will make reference... Read More

Under the law? - What did Sha’ul actually say?

  Shemot (Exodus) 23:7 Keep yourself far from a false matter; and the innocent (naqiy) and righteous (tsadiyq) slay you not: for I will not justify (tsadaq) the wicked. There are a couple of Hebrew words here that are worthy of consideration as we explore the writings of Sha’u... Read More

Under the law? - Three Greek Words

  Given that we are discussing the dominant paradigm expressed in the American 501(c)(3), federally registered, tax exempt church, let us consider the foundational rhetoric with specificity. Romayim (Romans) 3:1-17 WHAT advantage then has the Yahudiy? Or what profit is there of circ... Read More

Under the law? - The gift of the Holy Land

  Our covenant (brit) finds its original placement in the cepher Bere’shiyth: Bere’shiyth (Genesis) 15:17-18 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces. 18 In the same ... Read More

Under the Law? - The Everlasting Covenant

  I asked the question in the prelude to this discussion (Three Hebrew words), "Do you not wish to be his chosen?"  Consider the words of Kepha on this subject, in light of the words of David which we have previously read: Kepha Rishon (1 Peter) 2:2 As newborn babes, ... Read More

Under the law? - Three Hebrew Words

  Let’s crack the nut on this subject, shall we? First we need to discuss a couple of terms that may reveal a great deal on this subject.  We start with the terms that are used to discuss the word law.  In Hebrew, we first have the word torah, which is actually better in... Read More

Saturday, Saturn worship and Saturnalia

  Let's spend a little bit of time on this conversion of Sabbath to the day of Saturn worship. We will come back and discuss the keeping of Sabbath and its importance in a true walk of faith in a later blog.  The idea of converting the day of YAH’s rest to the worship of Satu... Read More

The names of the week

  We are as we speak, are we not?  It is interesting that in the modern English, we find the days of the week as Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.  These days are completely and wholly inconsistent with the days set forth in scripture.  Like th... Read More

The Practice of Februation among the Children of Yisra’el

  Some people have said that the bible teaches human sacrifice or infant sacrifice.  Let’s see what is actually said. Vayiqra (Leviticus) 18:21 And you shall not let any of your seed pass through the fire to Molek, neither shall you profane the name of your ELOHIYM: I am YAHUAH... Read More

Februation under the Julian calendar

  As we have seen, the month of February (Februarius) was named after the ritual of februation, which meant ritual purification, and for the children of Yisra’el, ritual purification by passing their children through the fires of Molech/Moloch. Before we consider the actual practice w... Read More

The months of the Julian year

  The Julian calendar and its successor, the Gregorian calendar, are interesting in their construction, particularly in their naming of the months and days and their order. Originally, under the Julian calendar, the year began with the month Martius. This month was followed by Aprilis (or A... Read More

Who are the Carmanians?

  Take a look at this enormously prophetic passage from Ezra Rishiy: Ezra Reviy’iy (4 Ezra) 5:27-30 For now are the plagues come upon the whole earth and ye shall remain in them: for ELOHIYM shall not deliver you, because ye have sinned against him. 28 Behold an horrible vision, and... Read More

Lost Books of the Bible: Baruk (Baruch) on the End Times

  One book which is included in the Eth Cepher and found in no other collection of sacred scripture is the cepher Baruch Sheniy.  What a remarkable book and one worthy of a complete analysis.  However, let us engage in a cursory review somewhere in the middle of the cepher for just ... Read More

The Circumcision of HAMASHIACH

  Tomorrow brings with it the first day of Gregorian New Year, an interesting calendar to say the least.  Here you have a calendar based on a 12 month cycle (although 13 equal months fits very well, with 13 – 28 day months (364 days), and one month which would require an amendmen... Read More

Gog and Magog

  Yekhezq’el (Ezekiel) 38:1-8 AND the Word of YAHUAH came unto me, saying, 2 son of Adam, set your face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshek and Tubal, and prophesy against him, 3 And say, Thus says ADONAI YAHUAH; Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the chief prince... Read More

Magog

  One of the great mysteries of prophecy is the question of Gog and Magog.  Let’s take a closer look and see if scripture can reveal its truth on this subject. Dvrei Hayamiym Rishon (1 Chronicles) 1:5 The sons of Yapheth יָ֫פֶת; Gimera גֹּמֶר, and Magog וּמָג֔וֹג, and Madai וּמ... Read More

The Birthright of Avraham – Part 2

  We have discussed the passing of the birthright from Avraham to Yitschaq, and from Yitschaq to Ya’aqov: However, is that the end of the passing of the birthright? No, it isn’t, as the blessings of Ya’akov, now Yisra’el, upon his twelve sons would come to define histo... Read More

The Birthright of Avraham – Part 1

  We cross over to a touchy subject, but one worthy of consideration for talmidiym of scripture.  For we have heard of the ELOHIYM of Avraham, Yitschaq and Ya’aqov: Shemot (Exodus) 3:14-15 And EOHIYM said unto El-Mosheh, HAYAH ASHER HAYAH:  and he said, Thus shall you say ... Read More

Chanukkah – a prayer

  We have learned now why the feast was held for eight days, because the Feast of Dedication under the guidance of the Makkabiym was held in accord with the former, and Shalomah held the former for eight days.  Even today, the feast is eight days, as is Sukka’oth, which rounds up i... Read More

Chanukkah – the rededication of the Temple

  The Feast of Chanukkah (with a capital “C”) is actually established in the cepheriym of the Makkabiym – books not written at the time of the Septuagint, and so ignored by the Rabbis, and discounted therefore by the emerging Roman church in its mixed theology of blindly ado... Read More

Chanukkah – the foundation

  Chanukkah is a very interesting feast – a feast (as practiced) that is not mentioned in the Tanakh, but is mentioned in the Gospels, yet is practiced by the Yahudiym and not the Christians.  Oh, the intrigue of it all!  Providentially, we have included those scriptures... Read More

Establishing Holiness in Your Life

  Ya’akov (James) 5 GO to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. 2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. 3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as... Read More

Holiness

  It is time to discuss two critical words: righteousness and holiness.  As you may have read before in these blogs, I have covered the word righteous and righteousness to some degree.  However, the word holiness is a different word. Whereas in the Hebrew, the word righteous i... Read More

The Fractal of Elohiym

  We have discussed previously the idea of spiritual fractals being set forth throughout scripture.  The most important of these fractals is the first or primary fractal which is the image of ELOHIYM.  We might want to know, given that man is created in the image and likeness of E... Read More

The Reign of the Throne of David

  Divrei Hayamiym Ri’shon (I Chronicles) 14:1-2 NOW Chiyram king of Tsor sent messengers to David, and timber of cedars, with masons and carpenters, to build him an house. 2 And David perceived that YAHUAH had confirmed him king over Yisra’el, for his kingdom was lifted up on hi... Read More

The Prince of Tyre

  Before we go to the relevant citations in the Eth Cepher, we need to clarify this term about which we will be discussing, and this is the word Tyre.  The word which appears in the Hebrew is not really even close, but over the years, the name Tyre has been the selected interpretation.&n...

Building a Hedge for the House of Yisra’el

  Yekhezq’el (Ezekiel) 13:3-5 Thus says ADONAI YAHUAH; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! 4 O Yisra’el, your prophets are like the foxes in the deserts. 5 Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the ho... Read More

Foolish Prophets

  Yekhezq’el (Ezekiel) 13:3-9 Thus says ADONAI YAHUAH; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! 4 O Yisra’el, your prophets are like the foxes in the deserts. 5 Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house ... Read More

Who is Yashar’el?

Devariym (Deuteronomy) 33:4-5 Mosheh commanded us a Torah, even the inheritance of the assembly of Ya`aqov. 5 And he was king in Yasharon, when the heads of the people and the tribes of Yisra’el were gathered together. Let’s take a look at this in the Hebrew. Torah (The torah) tsav... Read More

The Season of Thanksgiving – Part 4

  The evidence of things not seen Ivriym (Hebrews) 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. It is time to discuss those things not seen, and what constitutes the evidence thereof.  It is one of the great ironies that the most ... Read More

The Season of Thanksgiving – Part 3

  The substance of things hoped for We see now that the hope of lawfulness to the instruction (Torah) of YAH is by our moral fidelity to YAHUSHA HAMASHIACH and His ethos in works by the love of YAHUAH ELOHAYCHA with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and wi...

The Season of Thanksgiving – Part 2

The Season of Thanksgiving – Part 1

  Chag Semeach, Yom Yada! Nechemiah (Nehemiah) 8:1-2 AND all the people gathered themselves together as one man into the street that was before the water gate; and they spoke unto Ezra the scribe to bring the Cepher of the Torah of Mosheh, which YAHUAH had commanded to Yisra’el. 2... Read More

What is faith? – Part 7: The substance of things hoped for.

  Cepher Ivriym (Hebrews) 11:1 NOW faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. A few words on this subject are due.  One question that is rumored to have plagued Einstein who created his famous equation considering matter and energy, is the question... Read More

What is faith? – Part 6: Sha’ul’s discussion

  Having discovered the nature now of faith, morality, ethics, righteousness and holiness, let us consider some of the difficult writings of Sha’ul. Galatiym (Galatians) 2:16 Knowing that a man is not made righteous by the works of the Torah, but by the faith (moral convicti... Read More

What is faith? – Part 5: Faith without works; works without faith.

  As we have seen, the use of the word faith in its plain meaning, means in most cases moral conviction, fidelity, and truthfulness.  Yet we are called to higher standard than a mere meeting of the Torah.  This is what is meant by Sha’ul when he says that faith is apart from... Read More

What is faith? – Part 4: On morality and ethics

  Before we review the teachings of HAMASHIACH, let us consider the meaning of the English word morality.  The word describes the condition of adhering to morés, or the condition of acting in conformity with morés; i.e., the state of being moral.  Morés are th... Read More

What is Faith? – Part 3

  As we take a look at this issue of faith, our review should begin with a discussion of the righteousness of MASHIACH as expressed in his own words: Mattithyahu (Matthew) 5:17-18 Think not that I am come to destroy the Torah, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulf... Read More

What is faith? - Part 2 (WWJD/ WDYD)

  As we have seen, the use of the word faith in its plain meaning is, in most cases, moral conviction, fidelity, and truthfulness.  Let us see how it applies in the writings of the words of Sha’ul (Paul) that we might actually determine what he is actually saying. Romaiym (R... Read More

What is faith? - Part 1

  There are two words worthy of consideration in regard to understanding the English word faith.  The one is the Hebrew word emunah, and the second is the Greek word pistis. Both of these words are found in the underlying source texts, where these words are translated as faith. Th... Read More

  In the Eth Cepher, we wrestled about with the phrase found in Shemot 3:13-14 that is commonly interpreted as follows: And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to...

Your King Comes

  You recall that our chapter 9 of Zakaryahu opens with the edict that the burden of the word of YAHUAH in the land of Hadrach, and Damascus shall be the rest thereof: when the eyes of man, as of all the tribes of Israel, shall be toward YAHUAH. Let us recall the nature of the Word of Y... Read More

The Burden of Damascus

  Zakaryahu (Zechariah) 9:1 The burden of the word of YAHUAH in the land of Hadrach, and Damascus shall be the rest thereof: when the eyes of man, as of all the tribes of Israel, shall be toward YAHUAH. Masaw (Burden) dvar (word) YAHUAH b’eretz (in the land) khadrack (of Hadrak) v... Read More

Who now is Leviy? Part 7 – The Gypsies?

The following information is taken from the website http://www.imninalu.net/Gypsies.htm. The term “Gypsy” is commonly used as designation for the people whose correct ethnic name is Roma. However, the same word is employed also to indicate different non-Roma groups whose lifestyle i... Read More

Who is Leviy? Part 6 - The Admonition

Continuing with our discussion concerning the testimony of Leviy as set forth in the book The Testimony of the Twelve Patriarchs, let us consider Leviy’s admonition: And now, my children, I command you: Fear YAHUAH your ELOHIYM with your whole heart, And walk in simplicity according to al...

Who now is Leviy? Part 5 - The Testimony

  Because this is a blog, it is possible to discuss outside sources beyond the Eth Cepher as well, as we will do when we seek to ascertain who is Leviy in modernity.  It is certainly a question worth asking, and an inquiry worth the making.  One of the books that was reviewed ... Read More

Who now is Leviy? Part 4 - Separated

  Bemidbar (Numbers) 8:14-16 Thus shall you separate the Leviyim from among the children of Israel: and the Leviyim shall be mine. 15 And after that shall the Leviyim go inֺ to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation: and you shall cleanse them, and offer them for an offeri...

Who now is Leviy? Part 3 - The Anointing

  Bere’shiyth (Genesis) 29:34 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Now this time will my husband be joined לָוָה (lavah) unto me, because I have born him three sons: therefore was his name called Leviy לֵוִי. לָוָה lavah means to twine, i.e. (by implication) to u... Read More

Who now is Leviy? Part 2 – On Malkiy-Tsadiyq (Melchizedek)

  In our last discussion, the priesthood of Malkiy-Tsadyq (Melchizedek) was raised. Let us see if we can explore this just a bit more. Bere’shiyth (Genesis) 14:18-20 And Melchizedek king (melech) of Salem (Shalom) שָׁלֵם brought forth bread (lechem) and wine (yaiyin): and he wa... Read More

Who now is Leviy? Part 1 – The Blessing

  One of the most remarkable stories in Scripture is of course the blessing of Ya’akov on his 12 sons, and his two grandsons, because this blessing is still with us today and defines at its root all of western history.  Those of you who are seeking foundational parameters of politi... Read More

The practice of the Feasts of Yahuah

  Zakaryahu (Zechariah) 8:18-23 And the word of YAHUAH TSEVA’OT came unto me, saying, 19 Thus says YAHUAH TSEVA’OT; The fast (tsome) of the fourth month (Revi’iy), and the fast (tsome) of the fifth (Chamishiy), and the fast of the seventh (Shevi’iy, also Ethaniym), a... Read More

Fasting

  In addition to the seven feasts of YAH as set forth in Vayiqra (Leviticus) 23 and elsewhere, there are also seven fasts described in Scripture. Four fast days emerge from the scripture set forth in Zakaryahu (Zechariah) 8:19, which are declared to commemorate the destruction of both the fir... Read More

The Branch

  We begin with the instruction to make a menorah: Shemot (Exodus) 25:31-40 And you shall make a menorah of pure gold: of beaten work shall the menorah be made: his shaft, and his branches, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, shall be of the same. 32 And six branches shall come out of ...

Forgiveness – Part 3; On sin.

Forgiveness - Part 1

The Four Horsemen

  Many of us have heard of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, which is taken from Chizayon (Revelation) Chapter 6: Chizayon (Revelation) 6:1-8 AND I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. ... Read More

The Word “Blessed”

The Two Witnesses

Often, it is debated: Who are the two witnesses that are described in Chizayon (Revelation) 11? Chizayon 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. The debate usually seeks to determine i... Read More

Zionism

One of my favorite books in the Eth Cepher is this book of Zakaryahu, or in the common vernacular, Zechariah.  Back in the days when I attended the corporate 501(c)(3) church, I would never hear anyone preach on this book, although it contains one of the most important prophecies concerning Mas...

What or who are the seven spirits of YAH?

Who are the seven spirits of God? We begin with a Zakaryahu 3: AND he showed me Yahusha the high priest standing before the angel of YAHUAH, and Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him. 2 And YAHUAH said unto Satan, YAHUAH rebuke you, O Satan; even YAHUAH that has chosen Yerushalayim rebuke...

Would you still worship if His name was Joshua?

  In the Eth Cepher, we have set forth the name of Messiah as YAHUSHA (יהושע).  This name is identical to the name we have set forth in Numbers describing the Ephraimite Husha, the son of Nun, who was selected as one of the twelve to spy out the Promised Land during the beginning of th...

Psalm 81:3 and the Covered Moon

  The question of the biblical calendar is one that is not easily answered, particularly the question of how the first day of the month is determined, and how the first month of the year is determined. We begin with Bere’shiyth (Genesis) 1: 14 And ELOHIYM said, Let there be li... Read More

What is Canonization?

We have heard the objection as to books canonized and books not canonized, which begs the question: What is canonizing a book all about anyway? The council of Nicea was the first to create a canon (read: rule of the newly formed Catholic - or "universal" - Church). The canonization of the books was ... Read More

The Pseudepigraphal works of Sha’ul/Pa'al/The Apostle Paul

The Name of the Savior - YAHUSHA

When it comes to the son of YAHUAH, there are many names being taught today. We have set forth the name of Savior as YAHUSHA (יהושע), partly because this name is identical to the name we have set forth in Bemidbar (Numbers) describing the Ephrayimiy Husha, the son of Nun, who was selected as one of ...

The Scriptural Calendar

The Kingship of Yahusha HaMashiach

What does it mean to say “only begotten” Son?  We begin with the scripture commonly known as John 3:16: Yahuchanan (John) 3:16-21 For ELOHIYM so loved (אהב ahav) the world (תֵּבֵל tebel), that he gave his only begotten Son (יָחִיד את, eth yachiyd), that whosoever believes in... Read More

The Genealogy of HAMASHIACH (with video)

The genealogy of HAMASHIACH is expressed in two different passages of the Basaroth (the Gospels).  We begin with Mattithyahu, the very first words of the Brit Chadasha (excerpt from the Eth Cepher): Mattithyahu (Matthew) 1:1-17 THE (סֵפֶר cepher) of the generation of Yahusha HaMashiach, the...

The Scriptural Foundations of Chanukah

For so many, Chanukah is a problem.  The eight day festival which begins on the twenty-fifth day of the ninth month on the biblical calendar is practiced by those in Judaism, yet it does not have its establishment on this date in the Tanakh.  The feast is described in 2 Makkabiym, which is...

What we have bound, We have bound

In deciding to publish the 87 books of the את CEPHER, we reached many conclusions; some of which were decisions to include writings that had not been included before, and some of which were decisions to exclude writings which in some cases, were included in some texts. We began with the books trad... Read More

The Aleph Tav (את)

Many of the Greek translations set forth the statement made in Chizayon (Revelation) thusly: I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, says the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. Chizayon (Revelation) 1:8 We note for purposes of transliteration, first,... Read More

The myth of Romulus and Remus and the ties to ancient scripture

A recent review of the myth concerning Romulus and Remus evidenced a factual pattern that appeared to me to be a bit conspicuous and repetitive. As a “pattern recognition specialist” (thanks Ashton Lawson), I took a closer look. According to Brittany Garcia, in her post of 18 April 20... Read More

The Scarlet Thread

We begin with a discussion of the scarlet: And Yahuah spoke unto Mosheh, saying: 2 This shall be the Torah of the leper in the day of his cleansing: He shall be brought unto the priest: 3 And the priest shall go forth out of the camp; and the priest shall look, and, behold, if the plague of lepro...

A garment without a seam

Strong's Concordance makes a case for the Sacred Names

If you agree that there is in fact a name set forth in scripture f... Read More
