The Conditions of the Soul - to be born and born again


First, I taught the Mashiach:

Wherefore Yahuah also has highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Yahusha every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Yahuah is Yahusha Ha’Mashiach, to the glory of Yah the Father.

                                                                                                           Philippiym (Philippians) 2:9-11

. . . and they called me a blasphemer.

Then, I taught the Shabbath:

And I have chosen the seed of Ya`aqov from amongst all that I have seen, and have written him down as my firstborn son, and have sanctified him unto myself for-ever and ever; and I will teach them the Shabbath, that they may guard the Shabbath thereon from all work. 22 And thus he created therein a sign in accordance with which they should guard the Shabbath with us on the seventh day, to eat and to drink, and to bless him who has created all things as he has blessed and sanctified unto himself a peculiar people above all peoples, and that they should guard the Shabbath together with us.

                                                                                                           Yovheliym (Jubilees) 2:21-22

. . . and they called me a legalist.

Then, I taught the Covenant Torah:

And Yahuah said unto Mosheh, Writeאת  eth-these words: for after the tenor of these words I have cut a covenant with you andאת  eth-with Yashar’el. 28 And he was there with Yahuah forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the sapphiresאת  eth the words of the covenant, the Ten Devariym.

                                                                                                          Shemoth (Exodus) 34:27-28

. . . and they called me fallen from grace.

Then, I taught how to understand the Ivriyt:

The secrets of Yahuah Elohaynu are given to his children and their sons forever and ever, that they may observeאת  eth-every word of the Torah.

                                                                                                          Devariym (Deuteronomy) 29:29 

. . . and they called me a kabbalist.

Then, I taught the name Yahuah:

GIVE ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. 2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass: 3 Because I will publish the name of Yahuah: ascribe ye greatness unto our Elohiym. 

                                                                                                          Devariym (Deuteronomy) 32:1-3

Then beware lest you forgetאת  eth-Yahuah, which brought you forth out of the land of Mitsrayim, from the house of bondage. 13 You shall fearאת  eth-Yahuah Elohayka, and serve him, and shall swear by his name.

                                                                                                          Devariym (Deuteronomy) 6:12-13

At that time Yahuah separatedאת  eth-the tribe of Leviy, to bearאת  eth-the Ark of the Covenant of Yahuah, to stand before Yahuah to minister unto him, and to bless in his name, unto this day.

                                                                                                          Devariym (Deuteronomy) 10:8

Love ye therefore את eth-the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Mitsrayim. 20 You shall fearאת eth-Yahuah Elohayka; him shall you serve, and to him shall you cleave, and swear by his name. 21 He is your praise, and he is your Elohiym, that has done for you את eth-these great and את eth-terrible things, which your eyes have seen.

                                                                                                          Devariym (Deuteronomy) 10:19-21

And if a Leviyiy come from any of your gates out of all Yashar’el, where he sojourned, and come with all the desire of his mind unto the place which Yahuah shall choose; 7 Then he shall minister in the name of Yahuah Elohayu, as all his brethren the Leviyiym do, which stand there before Yahuah.

                                                                                                          Devariym (Deuteronomy) 18:6-7

I will declare your name unto my brethren: in the midst of the assembly will I praise you. 23 Ye that fear Yahuah, praise him; all ye the seed of Ya`aqov, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Yashar’el.

                                                                                                          Tehilliym (Psalms) 22:22-23

Sing unto Elohiym, sing praises to his name: extol him that rides upon the heavens by his name Yah, and rejoice before him.

                                                                                                          Tehilliym (Psalms) 68:4

Because he has set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he has known my name. 15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. 16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my yeshu`ah.

                                                                                                          Tehilliym (Psalm) 91:14-16

Sing unto Elohiym, sing praises to his name: extol him that rides upon the heavens by his name Yah, and rejoice before him.

                                                                                                          Tehilliym (Psalms) 68:4


Because he has set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he has known my name. 15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. 16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my yeshu`ah.

                                                                                                          Tehilliym (Psalm) 91:14-16

Awake, O sword, against my Shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, says Yahuah Tseva’oth: smiteאת eth-the Shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn my hand upon the little ones. 8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, says Yahuah, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. 9 And I will bringאת  eth-the third part through the fire, and will refine themאת  eth-as silver is refined, and will try themאת  eth-as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, Yahuah Elohai.

                                                                                                          Zakaryahu (Zechariah) 13:7-9

O Righteous Father, the world has not known you: but I have known you, and these have known that you have sent me. 26 And I have declared unto them your name and will declare it: that the love wherewith you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.

                                                                                                          Yochanon (John) 17:25-26

. . . and they gathered stones to stone me.

Today, I teach on the Conditions of the Soul:

And fear not them which kill the body but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear himאת  eth which is able to destroy both soul and body in Gey Hinnom.

                                                                                                          Mattithyahu (Matthew) 10:28

. . . Not my words, but his

The nephesh

For the soul (nephesh) of the flesh (besor) is in the blood (ha’dam): he and I (hu v’ani) have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood of him that makes an atonement in the soul.

                                                                                                           Vayiqra (Leviticus) 17:11

Where blood is present, the soul – the nephesh – is present.

Nephesh (נפש) (Strong’s H5315) means essentially mortal life (as compared with eternal life, or life everlasting).

The nephesh chaya

And Yahuah Elohiym formedאת  eth-the man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living soul.

                                                                                                           Bere’shiyth (Genesis) 2:7

In transliterated Ivriyt, this reads as follows:

Vaya’yatsar Yahuah Elohiym את eth Ha’Adam aphar min ha’adamah naphach b’aphiyn neshamah chayim hayah Ha’Adam l’nephesh chayah

Distinguishing between chay, chaya, and chayiym

Chay (חי)  chet/yod – to fence in the handwork of Yah. Where there is blood present in this handwork, chay is present as well.

Chaya (חיא) chet/yod/aleph – to fence in the divine handwork of Yah.  The aleph is present as it is in the word A’dam (אדם) – meaning divine blood.

Chayiym (חיים) chet/yod/yod/mem sofit – to fence in the handwork of Yah; and the handwork in the heavens; i.e., two aspects of life: one in the mortal flesh, and one in the eternal ruach.

The nephesh yalad chadasha

Yahusha answered and said unto him, Amein, Amein, I say unto you, Except a man be born again, he cannot see את eth-the Kingdom of Yahuah. 4 Niqodiymon said unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? 5 Yahusha answered, Amein, I say unto you, Except a man be born of water and of the Ruach, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of Yahuah.

                                                                                                            Yochanon (John) 3:3-5

Therefore let all the house of Yashar’el know assuredly, that Yahuah has made that same Yahusha, whom ye have crucified, both Yahuah and Mashiach. 37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Kepha and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38 Then Kepha said unto them, Repent, and be immersed every one of you in the name of Yahuah-Yahusha for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Ruach Ha’Qodesh.

                                                                                                            Ma’asiym (Acts) 2:36-38

But the Comforter, which is the Ruach Ha’Qodesh, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

                                                                                                            Yochanon 14:26

And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said unto them, Receive ye the Ruach Ha’Qodesh:

                                                                                                            Yochanon 20:22

The reborn soul – the nephesh chayim 

As you have given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as you have given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know you the only true Yah, and Yahusha Ha’Mashiach, whom you have sent.

                                                                                                            Yochanon 17:19-22

The reborn soul – the nephesh yachad 

And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the Truth. 20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be yachad; as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be yachad in us: that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 And the glory which you gave me I have given them; that they may be yachad, even as we are yachad:

                                                                                                            Yochanon 17:19-22

The name, the word, the truth

While I was with them in the world, I guarded them in your name: those thatאת  eth-you gave me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the Scripture might be fulfilled. 13 And now come I to you; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that you should take them out of the world, but that you should guard them from the evil. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them through your Truth: your Word is Truth.

                                                                                                             Yochanon 17:12-17
