FAITH! NOT FEAR
DR. STEPHEN PIDGEON
Well, good evening, and welcome to another presentation of Cepher Academy. I'm Dr. Stephen Pidgeon; I am very glad you are with us tonight. We are going to be doing an interesting presentation concerning Faith, not Fear. As we get into this tonight, there's a whole bunch of reasons why I got started with this concept, this particular subject.
As I have been watching what's been happening the last couple of weeks, really since the year began, I see kind of a couple of things happening there. There are really two things that I see happening. One is that we see the brothers and sisters being worn out. As Scripture says, we would be worn out. The believers would be worn out and exhausted. That's one thing I'm seeing happening. I'm seeing brothers and sisters getting worn out, exhausted, tired, and can't keep up the fight anymore. That's one.
And the other is I see people succumbing to fear, succumbing to fear. Well, we can't really do that. We are going to talk about that tonight. But before we get into the discussion of fear, I wanted to talk to you a little bit about Well, first of all, let's open with prayer. And then we will talk about some announcements and some other things too. But I think it's important we pray at this time because there's so many things unfolding on the earth.
Heavenly Father, we give thanks for your name, we give thanks for your presence, we give thanks for your mercy, we give thanks for your grace, we give thanks for your provision, we give thanks that you stand with us and that you cover us. We give thanks for your redemption, for the atonement.
We give thanks that you've called us into your family. That you have been with this in all things. We know, Father, the things that are upon the earth right now are not unknown to you. You know of all these things. And as we think about what's coming upon the earth, we are reminded that the earth and everything here was made by you, through you, and for you, and not for us, but for you.
And that we are here as instrumentalities of the mystery you have unveiled on this earth. And it is such that as we look into these mysteries, you see us as people of consciousness, people who can speak, people who can think, people who can hear, and understand and garner wisdom and obtain knowledge. And in these things, Father, we also obtain the knowledge that it's written in your Word, the facts of history, the world around us. And in these things, we come to understand that all living human beings, born into this earth with a faint cry in the breath of
A’dam in our nostrils that we will come at some point to be their last breath and expire in the flesh from this planet. And yet, by your Word, you have told us that our consciousness does not end, our soul does not end. Our ruach does not end but translates into a different jurisdiction. A jurisdiction that we are in your presence, sometimes for justification and other times for condemnation. And for that, we know that you work all things for the good of those who love you.
And we come to you as your children tonight, recognizing that this is your place. We are here on your terms, and by your conditions, through your understandings. And so, Father, once again, hear our praises and our thanksgiving in all these things. Be with us tonight in the study, guide us with your ruach and spirit, and in truth, that we might be a blessing to you in this study by Ba’Ha’shem YAHUSHA. Amen.
Speaking of our show, yes, yes, the sweatshirt. My good friends Jeremiah and Chelsea are prepared to make these. We will make them available we're thinking about probably; they're probably going to be a custom order, I suspect. And they're going to be available, I think, for 50 but it's going to be the sale price on Handmade here in the wilds and the deep wilds of Alaska. So, if you are interested in something like that, contact me by email at Stephen@Cepher.net, and I will put you in contact with Jeremiah directly. He can get you a short turnaround on the shirt and get it to you in accordance with what you desire. Okay. All right, that'd be a good thing.
Okay. Yes, indeed, Frank n beans would give thanks for the brothers and sisters in the chat, those who are missing, those who have passed. Amein, Frank n beans, Amein. We know these things that are happening that there are some here and some not. To the brothers and sisters who are in our community now, I want to also give thanks for that as well. Because of those of you who are in our community and who are joining our community, it's very important to work with one another in those communities.
There are many things coming upon the earth. I'm not going to get too far into those things because there are many, many things about which we can fear. But tonight is not a study on how to fear or why to fear. But rather on why you should not fear at all and instead, love life. Love what you're doing. And give thanks for it. Okay, let's share the screen. So, we don't have to see me all the time. Right?
We are going to do our Cepher Academy tonight, which is entitled “Faith! Not Fear”. And by the way, Cepher Academy is underway. If you want to drop by the website, CepherAcademy.net. We still have plenty of room in the Hebrew for beginners on the Aleph Beyt series that's happening there. You are welcome to come on in and join it. Once you join, even if you join late, you'll be able to get the old videos and to be able to go back and review them. Again, there's not a lot of participation in those lessons. They're all limited to 45 minutes, unlike the Saturday Sabbath, which last week went for 5 hours. These are time-limited lessons. And we are in and out in 45 minutes. And I think you're going to find them to be informative.
It's really so good to have the group we have here joining us for those studies. I want to say Shalom from summertime in Melbourne, Australia. Hi, Alan, it's good to see you, my friend. Thank you for joining. And it is so good to hear really from people all over the world as we talk about the subject because, as I say, we're going into what would be a fearsome time, a fearsome time. But we're not called to be afraid. No, no, no. Rather, we're called to faith. Not fear. Faith, not fear. Well, let's get started.
And then we'll see if I have anything meaningful to say; hopefully, it won't be me talking at all. We are going to let the Scriptures speak for themselves. We begin here with this first set of Yesha’yahu, Isaiah.
YESHA’YAHU (Isaiah) 44:8:
“8. Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told you from that time, and have declared it? Ye are even my witnesses….”
Oh, there we go.
“8. Is there an ELOAH beside me? Yea, there is no Rock; I know not any.”
There is no rock. Well, wait a minute. What about Peter? He's the rock. He was given the keys to the kingdom. He was given which keys to the kingdom, E flat major and a minor? Those two keys, that's what he was given? I'm kidding, of course. Although I don't know. I mean, maybe they weren't musical keys. There's a theory about that, too. But you see, there is no Rock.
Alright, so what we've had going on here now, since 2020, has been the robust sale of fear. It's the robust sale of fear. Now, interesting enough, today, in Denmark, a major newspaper in Denmark came out and said that they apologized for giving the government narrative of fear without ever looking past it to determine the validity of what they were saying. And to actually seek out for themselves under some kind of banner of the ethics of journalism, the real truth on the ground. They didn't do that. And they apologize now. In fact, a German newspaper joined them in apologizing.
And interestingly enough, the Metropolitan Police in London have undertaken a criminal inquiry for those who have participated in what is being called crimes against humanity. That is now before the International Criminal Court. So, there are things that are beginning to happen now in 2022.
It's like, okay, you guys played your hand, and we're looking with the hand is. Now that the light of YAHUAH is shining upon that hand, we're seeing the incredible wickedness that has been perpetrated against mankind. By people who believe they have a right to eat, but you don't, they have a right to natural resources on this earth, you don't. They have a right to live in luxury; you don't have a right to live at all. The methodology to rid ourselves of useless eaters is the language they use, which is what has been going on. They've openly said this coming out of the World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland. Part of the Bilderberger plan is the new quote-unquote, New World Order, which is not new, it's not an order, and it doesn't belong to the whole world.
It sounds like the Holy Roman Empire, right? It wasn't holy, and it wasn't Roman, and it wasn't an Empire. We got the same going on now with the new world order. It's not new; it's old, real old, goes back to 800 AD. And it's not the whole world. It's just the Western world. And it's not an order. It is the rain of the darkness and wickedness of the RCC.
But we see that fear is an adaptive response in the presence of danger. However, when the threat is uncertain and continues, as in the current pandemic, Scamdemic fear can become chronic and burdensome.
Chronic and burdensome. And this is what we're dealing with. Now, this is what we're dealing with, brothers and sisters, is this chronic burdensome wearing out of the brothers and sisters.
To identify predictors of fear, an online survey was conducted between March 14 and 17th, 2020. Fear… was assessed with the newly developed fear/ questionnaire (FCQ),
So, you can imagine what the C might have been there—consisting of eight questions pertaining to different dimensions of fear (e.g., subjective worry, safety behaviors, preferential attention) and an open-ended question. The predictors included psychological vulnerability factors.
In other words, are you more vulnerable to fear? For instance,
(i.e., intolerance of uncertainty, worry, and health anxiety), media exposure, and personal relevance (i.e., personal health, the risk for loved ones, and risk control).
Now, this is a study that was done online. A study was conducted by a public Med, and I give you the website there at the bottom of this slide, so you can see it if you want to access it. It is Fear of the coronavirus (COVID-19): Predictors in an online study conducted in March 2020 - PubMed (nih.gov).
So, these are some of the things that they found,
Four predictors were found for the FCQ in a simultaneous regression analysis:
Four predictors were found; what were they, health anxiety-I'm afraid my health is going to go down.
Regular media use-regular media use was a consistent predictor. In the fear questionnaire, regular media use-
social media use, and risks for loved ones (R2=.37). Furthermore, 16 different topics of concern were identified based on participants’ open-ended responses, including the health of loved ones, health care systems overload, and economic consequences.
Social media was a predictor and this fear questionnaire and risks for loved ones. So, we know quite often that the state has always used the love of a loved one to threaten people. In fact, if you go back and look in history, you'll see, for instance, there's discussions of Ba’al worship or Molech worship, where children were routinely sacrificed in the fire. Well, but they don't tell you about that particular kind of Ba’al worship and Molech worship in Scripture, because when we get this lightness of it, and what kind of importance it was.
But the truth is that in every society on earth, when it becomes authoritarian and totalitarian, the leaders need to get activities out of the people. That the people would do voluntarily if the leaders would leave them alone, which they won't do. Because the leaders are parasitic to what the people do, and there's always somebody who has the psychological dysfunction of needing to rule over someone else. And it's a psychological dysfunction; megalomania is what it is. And so, they come to you and say, I'm the government. I have control over your thinking and over what you do.
The greater the control that they exercise, the less creativity and inventiveness comes out of the person that is being controlled by the government or by the authority or by the ruler. So as a consequence, the rulers turn a beat. Well, you know if you don't do what I say, I'm going to take your property. Okay? All right. All right. If you don't do what I say, I'm going to rape your wife. Okay? All right. If you don't do what I say, I'm going to kill your children. Okay.
You have seen it every stinking mafia movie that was ever made, every Jason Statham film, or every, what's his name that Bruce Willis film. There's always the guy; they are happy with his wife and his kids. Then the next thing, you know, somebody breaks into the house, kills the wife and the kids, and the guy goes nuts. Because we know in our hearts that he's completely justified for doing that. But the movie, The Hunger Games, really kind of pointed this out. You had a child sacrifice ritual that was performed in the hunger games, a child sacrifice ritual. Where they would pull one child from the districts, and only one would live, and the rest would be killed by each other. That's child sacrifice.
So, the way the world was populated is, you be in a community, like, let's say, you're living in Eastern Asia. You are living on the coast where most people live, and you're in a community, and you have this leader. This leader keeps turning up the heat, you're either do what I do, or I’m going to kill your children. To prove it, we're going to start doing random sacrifices of children here in the community, So you get the message. And so, in the meantime, your job is to go fishing, and you go fishing. You go out to these remote islands, and you set up a fish camp, and you process fish all summer. Then you go back to this dictator who's threatening to kill your kids. One summer, you put your kids on the boat with you, and you don't come back, you don't come back.
And so, this is what we have seen as kind of the progression of mankind, as mankind leaves the civilized city. The Egyptian authoritarianism given by Satan himself, mankind leaves that and goes out to someplace where there isn't some ruler like that. But it's not long before one of those guys, those rulers that used to live in California, shows up with his California values and starts imposing on you. That's a joke.
But what you see is you see that it's not long before the wicked nature of mankind arises in the area that was once wilderness, but it's now populated. It doesn't take long for the people to show up and realize they can be a parasite. They can be a mooch; they can control, they can steal, they can be a crook. They can assert themselves as rulers over the people. And they do so by engendering fear. And they do that at its ultimate expression, in attacking children. Now, when you get to the point where you're attacking children to maintain authority and control, you're at the very end of your rule, you're at the very end of your tenure. That is a certain sign when whoever the leadership is, is destined to be completely replaced by somebody new.
And it's happened in every kingdom and every empire on earth. And in fact, what we see is there's two examples in Scripture; we see this very clearly. One is, of course, in Egypt. When the tribes of Yashar’el have been there, beyond the death of Joseph and beyond the death of the Pharaoh’s that remember Joseph. Then we get to a new breed of Pharaoh. I don't remember who this Joseph fellow is. Let's just go ahead and persecute these people here and make them do more work. Well, you know, they're outnumbering us now. Oh, they outnumber us, okay, we'll make them do even more work. And while you're at it, kill all the firstborn, kill the male children. We don't want any of those male children around; get rid of them; we'll only have females.
And China, of course, it's killed female children. Well, you could to another time this happens. You get to the time of Herod the Great. Herod the Great is the king, and the Magi come and say, we came to celebrate the birth of the King of the Jews. What? Where? He was born in Bethlehem. Okay. Soon as they walk out the door, you guys, you soldiers, just go over there and kill all the babies over there—all the male babies. And then what happened to Herod? That was the end of Herod. And not only was it the end of Herod, but it was the end of the Herodian dynasty, as Judea was completely eclipsed by Rome.
And in Egypt, you saw the same thing. You saw when Egyptian authorities came after the children of Yashar’el to kill them. That Moshe was born in the middle of that mix, and Mosheh rose to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt. But in the procession out of Egypt, as we've seen in the Torah portion for the last couple of weeks, in the procession out of Egypt, what takes place? Pharaoh his heart is hardened. And YAHUAH tells Moshe, you go there and tell him this. I'm going to do this to you. Let my people go. Oh, yeah, right. Well, you know, my magicians can do that, Mosheh, so shut up and get out, and the answer is no. And four times this happens. Then the curse begins to divide, it appears on the Mitsrayim, but it does not appear on the house of Yashar’el. And the curse has continued to increase in their severity and in their plague. As these happen, Mosheh repeatedly comes to Pharaoh and says, let my people go, that they may go and worship and sacrifice to YAHUAH in the wilderness.
Well, look, I'll let your males go. But I'm keeping the wives and the kids and the herds and stuff. Well, no, that's not going to work. You need to let my people go—next plague. Alright, I'll let you, your wife, and your kids go, but I'm keeping the herds and the flocks and all that. No, you need to let my people go now. In each instant, the Scripture records that YAH himself hardened Pharaoh's heart.
Now, let me tell you some of the hearts that are being hardened by Pharaoh right now. Donald Trump, who still stands by the vaccine. Joe Biden, who's hard, has become extremely hard, hardheaded, doesn't care what the facts on the ground are. He's moving ahead with his agenda. We think it's his agenda. Emmanuel Macron, in France. It is YAH that is hardening his heart. With the leadership in Austria, the leadership in Germany, the leadership in Australia, Scott Morrison his heart has been hardened by YAH himself. Jacinda Ardern in New Zealand, her heart has been hardened by YAH himself.
This is not something that that well, I'm right. I'm right. And they go to bed at night going. I'm right. I'm right now. YAH is hardening their heart. Jay Inslee in Washington, Karen Brown in Oregon, Gavin Newsom in California. Whitmer, in Michigan, De Blasio in New York, and the new governor there, whatever her name is, they're in New York; they have a hardened heart, not because of their ideas, they have a desire to assert authoritarianism. And to inflict a protocol on children as young as five years old. The criminal says, oh, now it's time to use this snakebite protocol on infants, you see. Now, once they begin to jab infants, they have reached the very end of whatever authority they will ever have on this earth.
But they have come close now because what is about to be unleashed now is the 10th plague of YAHUAH. And this is the death of the firstborn in the households that do not have the double strike of the blood of the lamb over the household. This is coming very, very quickly, very, very soon. And again, Pacach, this coming Passover is going to be an important Passover. For those of you who have not participated in Passover before, you need to look at what it's going to take to participate in it now. Because it's going to be very important to be in covenant with YAHUAH, in covenant with YAHUSHA, through the blood of the lamb over the doorpost of your heart, it could be very important. Because this plague is coming, it's coming very quickly.
And at the end of this, when this plague does arrive, and it will leave a dead person in every household, is how Scripture describes it in Shemoth. Once that happens, then Pharaoh's heart will not be hardened anymore. And he will say, I will let your people go. I will, in fact, get out. I will let your people go, go away, you see.
But when we do see what's going on, health anxiety, let's talk about health anxiety. When we talk about health anxiety, if you've spent your life running from job to job, and you're willing to take less wages than what you're worth in order to get a quote-unquote benefits package. And in that benefits package, it allows you to run to the doctor with every sniffle. Are you healthier than the people who don't do that in the third world? Or even in the second world? Are you healthier than those people? Are you healthier than those people who practice naturopaths? Are you? That's a question.
But to have health anxiety over something where the media comes to you and says, we've got severe health anxiety over this particular pathogen, which has about a 1% chance of rendering you dead If you if you capture it. While ignoring tuberculosis, the flu, the common cold, SARS, diphtheria, tetanus, smallpox, polio, and hepatitis. None of those things are worthy of a passport. Just the one that has a 99-point-something percent recovery rate. And in fact, I believe that rate is much higher than now, even under the new strains that seem to be much more contagious, but no one's dying from it. So, you have some very interesting circumstances. Should your health anxiety be high at this point? And the answer is that these statistics do not bear out any health anxiety whatsoever. No different than being worried about the flu that used to take a couple hundred thousand people a year. No different than being worried about a common cold that might be a heavy cold. No different than being worried about any kind of bacteria that your kids might bring home from school. Did you panic then? Here, get my kids into a mask; they're coming home from school, not that they have to have a mask coming to school, but when they come home, put them in a mask, they might bring some of that stuff home.
Regular media use, including social media, is a fear factor. It's a fear factor. Now, some media whose sponsors are almost all sponsored by a big drug dealer. We know who those are. Big drug dealer. And they openly admitted, oh, we're sponsored by big drug dealers tonight. And so, here's our story. Big drug dealer. Good. You bet. Big drug dealer. Good. And why is a big drug dealer good, because you should be in a cold sweat, panic attack about what's on the table, should be crawling up the wall with fear. And the only possible solution is a big drug dealer, you see. And when you get a nonstop parade of fear. Now, you see that this nonstop parade of fear media in Europe is apologizing for doing that. Right now. They're apologizing for doing that. You'll never hear such an apology out of American media. Because why apologize? That would be somewhat truthful.
But you can also see that social media has its own fear exacerbation. Now, let's talk about this for a minute. Any anyone who watches social media or who gets any of their news out of social media, you have to be very, very, very discerning because anybody can put up anything. And anymore, what do we know? I mean, we know what's on their computer screen. What do we know? I mean, are you certain that there's a Russia that actually exists? It's a question, right? I'm certain why because I've walked in the streets of Moscow. I've been in a Russian winter. I mean, I'm certain I know what I know. There's a Russia that exists. And I know they speak Russian when you get there. I know there's a Canada that exists because I've gone through there. I know that Israel exists because I've landed at Ben Gurion Airport.
So, we can have some of this, but when we talk about faith, does faith see everything it believes in? We are going to get to that; we're going to talk about that. But when you see social media use when you're talking about watching a YouTube video, you can't walk away from a YouTube video saying, well, you know what I just heard, bla, bla, bla; I just heard that the number two pencil is pagan. You know, you can't do that. If you're going to look at some social media, you're going to watch a YouTube video on this or, you know, a study on that or teaching on this. You need to obtain more than one witness, and you should be doing your own backdrop research.
This is one of the things that I love about what goes on down in Wales. There are people that are in Wales that are just massive historians. And they're interested in reading the literature, and then actually going to places and witnessing them and seeing them. It's an important part of history. I wish we had historians in the United States that were equally as serious. Most Americans know nothing about the Civil War, even less about the Revolution. If you ever watch a Mark Dice video, I mean, come on, guys, Mark Dice asking all these Americans, who was the nation’s capital named after? Nine in a row cannot answer, and finally, some woman says, oh, it must have been Abraham Lincoln. And he, finally me laughing, says, so, you mean Washington, DC was named after Abraham Lincoln. It's incredible; the incredible level of ignorance that is pervasive in the United States is really untenable. It's untenable.
However, we can see that if you're not using critical thinking, to review your social media, then you're not getting whole story; you're not getting a true story. You need to establish something by the testimony of two or more witnesses. Now, in addition to that, watching regular media is absolutely patently absurd; you should never do it, ever. There are none of the regular media that we used to rely on. We used to have antennas on our TVs and have the aluminum foil to use? Stand there and shift the antenna to stop the vertical line from going up and down.
You know, those channels, CBS, NBC, and ABC, are now morphing into cable channels, CNN, MSNBC, and so on and so forth. They do not report the news. They report their version of events in order to exact their agenda. CNN admitted before all the pedophiles got arrested, CNN flat admitted that that's what they did during the Trump administration. So, why would you watch that? I don't know. I mean, I tell people the example if you came to my house, and I said, oh, yeah, by the way, when you get home, you're not going to find your home because it burned down. And you went there, and you found it. Why would you believe me the next time you came to buy a house to visit me? You know, if somebody is lying to you, why do you go back? Why did you go back? You go back because there's an emotional need for you to feel like you are part of that in-group in Manhattan. But the people who live in Manhattan, many of them have never left Brooklyn, have never left Manhattan, have never left the Hudson River. And they live in a provincial myopic world that they think is conclusive. And it's not.
It's like people living in LA that have never gone over the Santa Monica mountains. They know LA; they don't know anything else. And many times, they're ahead of us. But oftentimes, their view is completely provincial and nonsensical, and they don't know what they're talking about. You don't need to be accepted by them. You don't need to sit down and have a cup of coffee with Good Morning America while they're poisoning your mind with absolute platitudes of propaganda lies.
Furthermore, 16 different topics of concern are identified based on participants' open-ended responses, including, of course, the health of loved ones, the health care, system overload, and economic consequences.
Who talked about economic consequences when the government was saying we have essential and non-essential businesses? Who talked about it? No one, you guys are non-essential. You know, I was sharing this with my friend at our Bible study. I said, you know, it's like, having a cook, come up to a race car and opening the hood of the race car and saying, well, you know, I see this engine here, but the camshaft, the push rods, the valves, and the lifters, those are all non-essential, shut them down. Is that right? When who can say, in a market economy, that something is not essential, only a communist or socialist, and only someone who has no concept or no care for how an economy works.
And as for the healthcare systems overload, you remember how overloaded they were when this thing first broke out? The nurses were up there doing tick-tock videos and dance routines and all of this because they were so overloaded. Even with them firing half of their staff, they're still not overloaded. The health of loved ones, you know, you're going to kill Grandma, you're going to kill grandma because you don't have the jab. Well, that's not true. Now, we know statistically that those who have the snake bite, especially those who've been double snake bit, are shedders of the spike protein and much more likely to catch a fatal version of the pathogen.
They represent 80 to 90% of the deaths in Europe and all the other countries where you've had a high snake bite protocol. So, anybody who tells you the opposite, like Donald Trump and Joseph Biden, are lying to you, simply not true, so untrue. And you notice how they never published a study to show what they're talking about.
Now, let's take a look. So, I've just put together some studies here as to what we're seeing in the fear-based world.
Effects of Internet Hospital Consultations on Psychological Burdens and Disease Knowledge During the Early Outbreak of COVID-19 in China.
So here is somebody who went in and did a study, finding what internet hospitalizations, consultations, and what kind of psychological burden did they put during the early outbreak.
The psychological impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the general population of Saudi Arabia.
So, we've never had a psychological study going on. The psychological impact of hepatitis. The psychological impact of tuberculosis. Nobody's ever studied it. For this one, we have to study the psychological impact. Why? Because the government acted to stop global warming. Now I want you guys to think about this for a second. We are the government, and we're going to act to stop the flow of a pathogen. Well, let me ask you, Mr. Doctor Government since you're here. Have you ever succeeded in doing that? Oh, yeah, we did it with polio. Now you better take a look at that study again and find out exactly what went down with that whole vaccine protocol.
Well, we did with smallpox. You mean the smallpox? Are you talking about the bacteria or the ionization that was spread throughout the world? By a jab protocol? Back in 1918, that you call the Spanish flu. Hmm. Did you do a psychological study on that? Was there a psychological study on the bubonic plague? No.
Acute mental health responses during the COVID-19 pandemic in Australia?
Here's a study on acute mental health responses. So again, I remind you that there's nothing in this pathogen that creates a psychological issue. What creates the psychological issue is what your government did to you in furtherance of their protocol. That's what created the psychological issue, this psychosocial impact of this C-19. Fear and anxiety in the face of this pandemic, negative dispositions toward risk and uncertainty as vulnerability factors see that?
How about C 19? related concerns and symptoms of anxiety. Does concern play a role in predicting severity and risk? Well, that's a question does concern play a role? Well, okay.
An integrated model of compliance with COVID-19 prescriptions: Instrumental, Normative and Affective Factors Associated with Health Protective Behaviors.
So, we can see here that we have what we have is a psychological impact. And the psychological impact can be measured in two ways in this country, as I mentioned earlier—the wearing out of the saints, of the Talmidiym, the wearing out of the Talmidiym. The exhaustion, I can't go, I can't keep fighting this every day I wake up. All I hear is that my government's going to put me in a concentration camp. My government is going to kick in my front door and stick me with a needle. My government is going to force me into an N95 mask. My government isn't going to let me go to the store anymore. My government isn't going to let me drive. My government is going to do this; it's going to do that. Isn’t going to let my business stay open. Every day when you're thinking about this, you wake up the following day, and they've got some new scheme to present to you; it wears out the saints.
Now, there are those who finally break down to the fear. And they go, Mm-hmm. Break down into the fear to say, well, wait a minute; I don't want to be there. I don't want to do that because something could happen.
Well, now let's look at the difference between Despair and Fear. This is what Emily Dickinson had to say about the subject.
The difference between despair and Fear-- is like the One Between the instant of a Wreck-- And when the Wreck has been—
The Mind is smooth-- no Motion—
Contented as the Eye
Upon the Forehead of a Bust—
That knows-- it cannot see—
So, what she is saying is, the difference of fear and of despair is fear doesn't arrive until you get into a wreck. You're driving your car; you're not afraid. Bam. Oh, now you despair. I'm in a wreck. Now the next time you get in that car, you fear the possibility of a wreck. You see.
Now look at this, guys, look at this. This is a recent study that came out on the 10th of January.
“Deaths of despair” spiked in Washington State in 2020, exceeding deaths from COVID-19.
Now, this was something that was published in it was written by Jean Balkan published on Desdemona's despair. Dotnet deaths of despair spike.
Well, that's not the only place to look at this,
Deaths from overdoses, alcohol use, or suicide in Washington State, 2015 to 2020. Nearly 3,900 Washingtonians died from “deaths of despair” in 2020, an increase of 600 (15%) since 2019.
It also exceeds the number of Washingtonians who died from the COVID-19 virus in 2020, which the CDC pegs at nearly 3300.
And that is substantially reduced from the numbers the state initially published because they began distinguishing between those who died from the sea instead of those who died with it.
Look at this one. This again was published on Desdemona despair.net.
U.S. overdose deaths reached a record high as the pandemic spread- Drug overdoses killed more than 100,000 Americans in a yearlong period, ending in April 2021. Quote, these are numbers we have never seen before.
Okay. In the 12-month period that ended in April, more than 100,000 Americans died of overdoses, up almost 30% from the 78,000 deaths in the prior year, according to the provisional figures from the National Center of health statistics. The figure marks the first time the number of overdose deaths in the United States has exceeded 100,000 a year, more than the toll of car crashes and gun fatality he's combined.
But Congress wants to talk about all those wicked guns, those what do they call him? What are they what do they call the AR 15? I forget what they call them now. But they're so convinced that these that you know, the black ones, are the dangerous ones. We've got to get rid of them. We'll start with those because they're kind of scary looking, said Dianne Feinstein, Well, having her finger on the trigger in Congress. But you see here that we have something we've never seen before. That deaths from despair exceed all of those people who died from car crashes and gun fatalities combined.
Well, let's get into some Scripture here and talk about what we're dealing with. Now, here, Paul, the worker writing in Qorintiym Shieniy, or Second Corinthians, actually, the book was probably written by Luke, who wrote the Gospel of Luke. And then he has this to say,
QORINTIYM SHENIY (2 Corinthians) 4:7:11:
“7. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of ELOHIYM and not of us.
8. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
9. Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
10. Always bearing about in the body, the dying of ADONAI YAHUSHA, That the life also of YAHUSHA might be made manifest in our body.
11. For we which live are always delivered unto death for YAHUSHA’S sake, that the life also of YAHUSHA might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
12. So then death works in us, but life in you.”
You see that we have this life of YAHUSHA; we have this life of YAHUSHA. That's why they can come at us, and they say, look, we're not going to let you eat. We're going to cut you on this. We're going to move you over here. We're going to push you at this. We're going to; we're going to, we're going to do this to you. Okay, we're distressed; I got you. Or we're not distressed, we're troubled, but we're not distressed. We're perplexed. Why are you guys doing this? Because we don't like you. Because we are the authorities of evil. And you are the light in the doorpost. All right, I am still confused, but I'm not in despair. Because the reason I'm not in despair is because of YAHUSHA because he conquered the grave, Amein.
QORINTIYM SHENIY (2 Corinthians) 4:13-14:
“13. We, having the same ruach of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken;….”
You know, I love that passage. I believed; therefore, I have spoken. Amein. Halleluyah. We also believe, and therefore speak;
“14. Knowing that he which raised up ADONAI YAHUSHA shall raise up us also by YAHUSHA, and shall present us with you.”
This is going to happen. It’s a given.
In Colossians, once again, this is a passage that I greatly love, which is the writing of Paul, again, the writing of Paul, and we see this,
QOLOSIYM (Colossians) 1:9-11:
“9. For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that he might be filled with the knowledge of his will….”
Will of YAHUSHA
“9. in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;…”
Yeah, how great is it to know the will of YAHUAH, not our will, not the will of the wicked men around us, but to know the will of YAHUAH and all wisdom and spiritual understanding. In other words, don't put it to the secular test. Understand it with spiritual understanding and spiritual wisdom.
“10. That ye might walk worthy of YAHUAH,….”
Wait a minute, wait a minute, hold it. Walk worthy of YAHUAH. What are you talking about? Paul, I thought you said that the law was nailed to the cross. I thought you said we had unfettered Christian liberty and go hang out, do whatever we want. What are you talking about, walk-worthy? Oh, it’s the same thing you said in Romans 12. That we should present ourselves as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable. Now, holly and acceptable sacrifice means to be an unblemished sacrifice.
“10. That ye might walk worthy of YAHUAH unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of ELOHIYM….”
So, this is something very interesting. Because when you do good works, you want to be fruitful in those good works and not unfruitful. You don't want to bear bad fruit; you want to bear good fruit. And sometimes, the good fruit requires faith in YAH, requires faith. That YAH is doing wonderful things, even when they don't look wonderful. And he says, increasing in the knowledge of ELOHIYM. So, what is this wisdom and spiritual understanding of the will of YAH, the wisdom and spiritual understanding comes about from increasing the knowledge of YAHUAH? What is his character? Who is he? Importantly, what is his name? What is his name? And what is his character on this earth? And this is why it is so common to see the Old Testament that spontaneously people would see that the working of YAH happens, and they would cry out in unison, “Yada Yahuah, kee tov kee l’olam chasdo, give thanks to the Lord, and His mercy endures forever.” And what does YAHUSHA say? I desire mercy, not sacrifice; I desire mercy, not sacrifice. Have you not read? Yes.
“11. Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patients and long-suffering with joyfulness;."
Now, so this is where we get into wearing out the saints. We are going to be strengthened with the might of the ruach. What this YAHUAH says, not by strength, not by might, but by my ruach says YAHUAH TSEVA’OTH. Strengthen with all of this might in accordance with his glory. You know his “ka’vod, this power, this “ka’vod,” we're going to be strengthened with that glorious power into what, patients. Oh, well. Wait a minute. Yeah, that's exactly it. Wait a minute. Wait. Wait on me, says YAHUAH, wait, wait on me, says YAHUAH. Why? Because his mercy extends also to the wicked.
Wait on me that I might go to that wicked man one more time and say, you know, I've talked with you privately, night after night after night. And you keep sticking your finger in your ear and saying, I'm not hearing that. I'm not listening to that. No, get out. I don't want to hear it. I don't want to hear it. Because you don't want to be convicted in the truth. And you don't want to see the face of righteousness. So, you cover your eyes, and you plug your ears so that you have eyes that see but cannot understand and ears that hear but cannot understand.
Because you do not want to hear the voice of YAHUAH telling you, repent and be baptized for the Kingdom of YAHUAH is near. It's near. And so, you say to yourself, well I've got power, I have to maintain. I have wealth; I have to maintain it. I have my image; I have to maintain it. I have my vanity and the things that supply my vanity that I have to maintain. So don't talk to me about your righteousness. And YAH says to himself, look, I have three more arguments with this person before I give up on them. So, you guys over here who want to see justice for the sins this person is committing. You need to have patience, and you need to have long-suffering, and why you're being patient. And while you're doing your long-suffering, you need to do that with joyfulness.
Okay, all right, so here we are, having the saints been worn out from this nonstop assault. It's like somebody coming over to you with one of those small claw hammers. And every day, you wake up, and they keep hitting you from 9 am to 10:30 pm. They're hitting you in the right shoulder blade with this hammer, blam, blam. Am I getting your attention yet? Okay, how long have we put up with it forever? Forever, because we have been called into all patience and long-suffering with joyfulness, knowing that YAH is in control. Because we know he is the maker of the heaven in the earth.
Then what does it say in Colossians, after this,
QOLOSIYM (Colossians) 1:12:
“12. Giving thanks unto the Father, which has made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the qodeshiym in light:
So, when you're sitting here saying I can't take it, I can't take it. I can't deal with it anymore. I'm just downcast. I'm facing down in the dirt; life stinks. And I stink right along with it. Give thanks. Don't give thanks necessarily for your horrible circumstances. Although YAH intends something really good for you. You may not see it; you may be looking at it going; this place and where I am right now sucks. I want out of here. I can't stand it. I got to get out.
But you know what, YAH may have something planned for you. That's going to save your life. Maybe YAH doesn't want you where you are right now. Maybe he wants you someplace completely different. And maybe he called that to you before and said, you should go to this place I've chosen for you. And you said, well, thanks for your opinion. But I'm not going. But sometimes, when YAH has called you to a place like if you're Jonah, and you've been called to go to Nineveh, and you say, well, I'm not going there. I'm going to go suntan on the beaches of Valencia, there in southern Spain. I'm not going to Assyria, no.
Next thing you know, you're in a fish, and you're being puked up on the beach. See? Now Jonah got puked up on the beach; guess what? He stank. Or as it says in Scripture, or it says in the King James, he stinketh. There he is washed up on the beach, smelling like whale guts. And asking himself the question. What am I doing here? No, he didn't ask himself the question. He knew what he was doing there. YAH had sent him there. And YAH said, now, I'm going to ask again to do what I asked you to do. Go over there to Nineveh and tell them to repent.
Well, some of you are being called in the same way. And you're being called because your kind of hardheaded. You are resistant to what YAH said to you before. So, now YAH is making it happen. When that happens, you don't get thanks for the fact that you stank. You don't get thanks for the fact that gee, I've been in the whale’s gut for three days. But you do give thanks because you are a partaker of the inheritance of the qodeshiym. Because you were called into his family. You were called out of death into life. You were called out of the worship of death into the love of life. You were called out of the darkness and called into the light. You were called out of eternal destiny of wandering the earth with an ever-depleting consciousness like it says in 4 Ezra Chapter 7. Instead, you were called into the life of being beside MASHIACH. You were called into the life of those who would be at the wedding of the lamb. You were called into the testimony of the qodeshiym. Yes, amein.
Give thanks for that. Give thanks for that, and give thanks for that.
QOLOSIYM (Colossians) 1:13-15:
“13. Who has delivered us from the power of darkness and has translated us into the Kingdom of his yachiyd:….”
The beloved one, he’s translated us now. I mean, this is what Paul is saying, where our souls, our ruach, have been already translated into the Kingdom of the eth-yachiyd, YAHUSHA, the crucified YAHUSHA. We have been translated into that Kingdom already.
Now, many of you know this, well, you might not know this but look, when you are a person who has been a person of faith for a long time, and suddenly you’re having visions, or you’re having dreams, you know, lucid dreams. So, you’re getting word from YAHUAH, or you see miracles in front of you, or you’re seeing miraculous healing, or you’re doing miraculous healing. Or you’re seeing other things like this happen. What is this telling you? Your ruach is already in the kingdom of YAHUAH. It’s already there. Your body is stuck here on Earth, but your ruach is already in his Kingdom.
“14. In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins….”
Why? Because, of course, the Torah given to Mosheh had a blood requirement. For all the blood that is shed, blood will be required. I didn’t write that. But it’s written in the Torah. It’s found right there in Leviticus 11. All that the blood is shed, blood will be required. Well, what does this mean? Does this mean we have to bleed ourselves? No, there was an interim blood sacrifice that did not atone for sin. But it kind of settled the air, at least in the community. For a sin that required your blood, an animal died, provided his blood. And this happened until the Torah was fulfilled. What Torah, the Torah of sin and death, requiring a blood sacrifice for the sins of mankind.
Until that Torah was fulfilled, and it was fulfilled in a way that does not require another animal to ever, ever be sacrificed. Because the blood of MASHICAH is sufficient for thee, the blood of MASHIACH is sufficient for thee, in whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins. Halleluyah.
“15. Who is the image of the invisible ELOHIYM, the firstborn of every creature:”
Well, now just hold up here a minute, the image of the invisible ELOHIYM. So, we have Paul here, telling us that when you talk about ELOHIYM, you're talking about something invisible, something not seeable. Peter says the same thing that YAH cannot be seen, for he is a consuming fire. And yet, we have this interface that takes place between the people of Yashar’el, and YAH, at Mount Horeb. When they saw him face to face, who was this that they saw face to face? It is he who is the image of the invisible ELOHIYM, the firstborn of every creature. In fact, the firstborn of all of creation would be another way to put it. We're going to have to deal with some of these issues as we talk tonight. Because we get into this faith, we're going to be getting into what is invisible; what does it mean? And then how do we know?
This is Colossians telling us this,
QOLOSIYM (Colossians) 1:16:
“16. For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth….”
We are not just talking about what's in here inside the little globe. We're talking about all of the expanse that are in heaven that are in the earth.
“16. visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers:….”
You see that that's not something physical, a dominion, or principalities. That's not something physical either; that's a jurisdictional issue or powers. Again, when you say, hey, I've got the power to throw you in jail. You have to have a judge looking at the defendant, you know, I got the power to give you two years in jail. Well, Judge, before you exercise that power, can you draw me what that looks like? Can you give me a picture? Can you tell me what color that is? Would you tell me what the fabric it’s on? What's the texture of your power? There is no drawing of power; you're not going to sit down and scratch it out on a scratch pad because it does not exist in the physical world.
It's the same thing with a principality. A principality doesn't exist. We've got our boundaries; what are your boundaries? Well, check on the plat map. And the plat map will give you the locations of the north, south, east, and west boundaries. Oh, okay. The plat map. Well, if I walk up there, will I see it? We got some of it fenced, but not all of it. So, I'm not going to be able to see the limits to your jurisdiction. But the limits to the jurisdiction exist, nonetheless. Why?
Because they exist in the non-material world. Same thing with powers. The same thing with dominion; you have dominion over the animals. Can you paint that for me? I've got dominion over the animals. Okay, well, paint dominion. What color is that? What shape is it? What's its texture? You can't paint it because it has no existence in the physical world.
Now it's the same thing when you talk about thrones. Now, you might think, well, he means thrones, wither they be thrones, so we can go round and look for a number of chairs that look like the throne that they had up there in Scotland, back during the time of James the 5th. No, no. What are you talking about? You're talking about thrones; you're talking about someone who has singular dominion over a principality and singular power over a principality. And that throne, when you see when you see somebody walking down the street, let's say you're talking about the King of England, and the king of England is walking down the street. He's not sitting on a throne. He may be dressed in casual clothes; maybe he's going to the beach. And as he's walking, does he continue to hold the throne of England, even though he's not on the throne? And he's walking down the street. Yes, of course.
Because the throne, again, when you're talking about that singularity of power, authority, singularity dominion, over the principality is a metaphysical concept, not a physical concept. It has no Genesis in the material world. And it really has no Genesis in the energy world. It has Genesis in the intellectual world or in the consciousness, you see. So, we know that all of these things, thrones, dominions, principalities, powers, all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things; that is to say, MASHIACH existed before the creation of all the material world. This is what he's saying; he is before all things before there was any creation, MASHIACH. This is known as the doctrine of con substantiality, con substantiality. And by him, all things consist.
Now, this passage is so important to understand; you see, the world is not about us. It's about him. It's not about what we like and don't like. It's about what he likes and doesn't like. It's not about our choices. It's about his choices. It's not about us finding whatever it is that we've decided is the meaning of Scripture. It's about what he said and his appointment over this earth. And into this milieu, we were placed. And we were placed into this milieu, not to be automatons, robots, who would say Yes, Master, yes, Master. We were placed here to render our own decision about who we love and who we don't love. This is the challenge of life. This is what is given to us.
The adversarialness and the wickedness of the world were created by him, and for him that the mystery of redemption would be manifested and accomplished through him!
See this? So that's something we did; it's not something we're going to do either.
Let's continue with this teaching out of this writing in Colossians.
QOLOSIYM (Colossians) 1:18-19:
“18. And he is the head of the body, the called-out assembly: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
19. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell;….”
That’s interesting. What does he mean by all fullness? The fullness of the Father would dwell in the Son.
And, having made peace through the blood of his cross,
The peace of what? It was the iniquity of mankind. That was enmity to YAHUAH. Who before had said, this iniquity is so bad, I’m going to get rid of these people. I’m just going to flood this earth. I regret I ever made these guys. Let’s get rid of them. Well, it is what happened. But he preserved eight people. Now he looks, it’s a few 1000 years later, and it’s like, come on. These guys, they just can’t stop. I give them the instructions. I give them instructions in the writing. Then they got to run after Molech. And then they’ve got to run after ISIS, and they got to go worship the obelisk.
Then they go and build a golden calf, and they sacrifice their children. They put up the Asteron poles, and they have to bake the sacrificial wafers for the Queen of Heaven. And they got to do all this stuff. I said, don’t do it, don’t do it. Don’t do it, and they do it. And then, as a result of them doing that, what? They kill their neighbor. They kill their friends; they war with one another. They kill their own children. They kill their parents. They kill their brother and sister in order to hold on to some material aspect of the material world. Which of the three forms of world, you have the material world, you have the energy world, and you have the world of consciousness. The material world is the least of the three.
And yet there are people who cling to that, oh, this material world just makes I just, you know, the suffering is so intense. I just got to gather more material stuff. The Madonna of being the material girl. She’s the Material Girl. So, you are out there gathering material stuff. I need more material. Why? Well, I’m going to make myself even more clothes. That’s why I’ve got to have more material. I’ve got to have more material. What do you do with those material? I don’t know. Then you die. And your kids have to sell it all at an auction. Right? Because you got too many things. All this material stuff you haven’t even seen. Come on, how many of you have storage sheds you haven’t looked at in the last year? Something to think about. He is the firstborn from the dead that in all things you might have the preeminence.
QOLOSIYM (Colossians) 1:18-21:
“19. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell;
20. And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things to himself;….”
All the iniquity in the world is now reconciled.
“20. By him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
21. And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works,….”
So. Where are you alienated? And when did you become an enemy? When did this happen? It happened in your mind. It happened in your mind that you became alienated, and you became an enemy in your mind because of your wicked works.
“21. yet now has he reconciled.”
So, the Psalm, in Psalm 1, we’re going to see this admonition given to us.
TEHILLIYM (Psalm) 1:1-3:
“1. Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,…”
Get away from those wicked,
“1. nor stands in the way of the sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful….”
You know, I want to stand in the way of the sinners because those guys are getting elected. And you know, and we’re going to do some cool stuff. I’m going to hang out at the Masonic Lodge. Yeah, I know; they do that Luciferian thing. I don’t believe in that stuff. I just kind of mouth it. Because I want to be in the way of those sinners because they’re the ones that are gathering the material world, they’re the ones controlling the material world. They’re the ones in power. They’re the ones who make all the decisions. They’re the ones that have all the big stuff. And I’ve got small stuff right now. So, I’m going to go ahead and walk in the Council of the wicked, and I'm ’going to sit in a way of the sinners. I’m going to sit in the seat of the scornful, and we’re going to make fun of those people who don’t think that this stuff is important.
“2. But his delight is in the Torah of YAHUAH, and in his Torah, he meditates day and night….”
Blessed is the man whose delight is in the Torah of YAHUAH. And in his Torah, he meditates day and night.
“3. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water…”
Now I want to ask you about a tree planted by the rivers of water. When you go over to that tree, and you see this beautiful tree standing up over the river, some gigantic, tall oak tree that is in perfect health with these branches reaching down in these green leaves and so on. Do you see a lot of furniture around the bottom of that of that tree? Do you see a boat and an RV parked out there next to the tree or new car? I mean, you just don't see that stuff, right? The tree is healthy and vibrant. And he's by a river of water.
“4. That brings forth his fruit in his season; his leaf does not wither, and whatsoever he does shall prosper.”
Halleluyah. All right.
And the Psalmist goes on to write in Psalm 119.
TEHILLIYM (Psalm) 119:49-55:
“49. Remember the word into your servant, upon which you have caused me to hope.
50. This is my comfort in my affliction:….”
So, for those of you who are face down in the dirt, for those of you who think you cannot go on, for those of you who are exhausted, for those of you who are out of gas, David is telling you this is my comfort in my affliction.
“50. for your word has quickened me.
51. The proud have had me greatly in derision:….”
Well, you, we’re going to point the finger at you. And we’re going to deprive you. We’re going to condemn you. We’re going to cast you down. We’re going to kick you to the curb. Then once we get you down, we’re going to kick you while you’re down.
“51. The proud have had been greatly in derision: yet have I not declined from your Torah.
52. I remembered your judgments of old, O YAHUAH; and have comforted myself.
53. Horror has taken hold upon me because of the wicked that forsake your Torah….”
Why are we afraid, because the wicked who forsake the Torah are coming right after us. They don't have any use for the Torah. They don't have any use for YAHUAH. They don’t believe in that stuff at all.
“54. Your statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage….”
“55. I have remembered your name O YAHUAH, in the night, and have guarded your Torah. This I had, because I kept your precepts.”
Why do you have comfort in the affliction? Because you're keeping his precepts. The precepts is a very interesting term because it really defines what's going on in the commandments of YAHUAH. It's the keeping of those precepts and the meditation upon those precepts that brings comfort in your affliction. And that gives hope.
Now, Solomon is going to talk about this a little bit,
MISHLEI (Proverbs) 3:1-6:
“1. My son, forget not my Torah; but let your heart guard my commandments:
2. For the length of days, and long life, and peace, shall be added to you.
3. Let not mercy and truth forsake you: bind them about your neck; and write them upon the table of your heart:….”
Now for all of you literalists, who like to take Scripture literally, there is no table of the heart. You're not going to go in there and find something made of oak sitting on top of the heart. And he's not talking about taking mercy and truth in forming it into a hangman's knot and hanging it around your neck. Mercy and truth are metaphysical. They don't exist in the material world. And so, when he's talking about mercy and truth, bind them about your neck, that is to say, always be clad with mercy and truth, and write them upon whatever it is you use to write upon your heart.
When you want to tell your future spouse, my love for you is written upon my heart. All right, well, does that mean that you went in there with a knife? No, no, no, come on, you know what we're talking about.
“4. So shall you find favorite and good understanding in the sight of ELOHIYM and man.
5. Trust in EL YAHUAH with all your heart; and lean not onto your understanding.
6. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths.”
Now, when we talk about this, acknowledging YAH trusting YAHUAH with all your heart. This is hard to do. We have faith in our job. We have faith in our healthcare insurance. We have faith in our automobile. We have faith in our network. We have faith in our money. But do we have trust in YAH? Do we have trust in YAH?
You see the picture behind us here in the PowerPoint. You know, this is our buddy, Indiana Jones, who took the step of faith to walk out on this bridge that you otherwise could not see. It could not be seen. This is the real trust in YAHUAH. And I'm not saying you should act foolishly. But you must trust in YAH. When your circumstances are just splattered, you know, somebody dropped the dozen eggs right in your kitchen floor, and it's not even your kitchen floor; it's some floor where you didn't want to be, in the ratty kitchen you don't even like, and then you get a dozen eggs on the floor. And that's all you had to eat for the week. You need to trust in YAH; you need to trust that YAH has provisioned for you. You need to trust that YAH has direction for you. You had you need to trust that YAH has healing for you. You need to trust that YAH’S mercy is upon you. That his forgiveness lies over you, that he is going to relieve your suffering. He's going to pull you out of your addiction. He's going to straighten your path. But you have to trust in YAHUAH with all your heart and don't be putting your understanding in there. Well, I read the Scripture; the Scripture said this. You can find a lot of stuff in Scripture. But you need to trust in what YAH is doing in your particular life. You need to trust. He's not going to leave you. In all your ways, acknowledge him.
Now, I have to tell you guys; there's times when I forget about this. I forget. And I hate to forget about it. Because I don't want to be somebody who forgets to give thanks to YAHUAH. I don't want to be that person. I want to be the person who gives thanks. I want to be the person that gives thanks that you know for my wife continuing to live with me. That's a miracle in and of itself. I want to give thanks to the fact that I have a roof over my head. I want to give thanks that there's food for me to eat today. I want to give thanks for the friendship and the fellowship that's in this group. And in the chat here tonight, I want to give thanks for that. I want to give thanks for every relationship I have. I want to give thanks for my children. I want to give thanks for my health. But most of all, I want to give thanks to YAH, who has called me into the family of believers, and that he has called me by my name, and I can call him by his, YAHUAH ELOHAI, you are my EL YAHUAH. I give thanks that you have extended your mercy, Your grace, and your forgiveness on me that you would allow me to even say that, that you would allow me to even say that.
And so, with that, guys, listen, tonight, I'm going to be abandoning the moniker Dr. P. Okay, so from here on out, I'm just going to be known as Stephen, or if you want to refer to me as brother Stephen, we're just brother. But it's just not going to be Dr. P anymore. I just don't want to be there anymore. I don't want anybody to be damaged by that kind of a moniker. It's just me. Okay. It's just me.
Trust in EL YAHUAH with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.
In all your ways, acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths.
MISLEI (Proverbs) 6:23:
“23. For the commandment is a lamp; And the Torah is a light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:
Don't live your life in accordance with your decisions. Live your life in accordance to the way the Torah instructs. And as YAH leads. You might find yourself in some weird places. And when you do give thanks and continue. What’s he say,
MISLEI (Proverbs) 7:2-3:
“2. Guard my commandments, and live; and my Torah as the apple of your eye….”
The center pupil of the eye. And guard my Torah as the center of the pupil of the eye, the center of your understanding.
“3. Bind them upon your fingers,…”
Now, what that means is cut out the pages and get some superglue and stick them right there to your fingers. So that everywhere you go, okay, let me look at that for a second. No, of course that speaking metaphorically.
3. write them upon the table of your heart….”
There's your table of the heart again. But let's get in kind of cluttered after the last stuff I wrote there. Good thing I didn't use a carving knife.
MISHLEI (Proverbs) 13:14:
“14. The Torah of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.”
Well, this is something that is a very good instruction. The Torah of the wise is a fountain of life. You follow this Torah if you taught as a child, the Torah, which, unfortunately, I was not. But if you're taught the Torah as a child, instead of the government regimen over at the communist school, then you're going to learn the fountain of life. You're going to learn the mechanisms to live and to live a long life, and you will depart from the snares of death. Maybe. The snares of death come from all kinds of places. And sometimes we see them, and sometimes we don't.
MISHLEI (Proverbs) 28:9:
“9. He that turns away his ear from hearing the Torah, even his prayer shall be an abomination.”
Now, of course, you know that most of the people that run into the churches in this country, soon as you walk in the door, if they let you in, which my case, they won't. But if they did, they would tell you that the Torah was nailed to the cross. So shut your face because you have fallen from grace, and we're not under the law. Well, they don't want to read what Solomon had to say about it. Because if you're going to turn your ear away from hearing the Torah, even your prayer is an abomination. Now, you may not like the truth of that statement. Well, cut out the works of Solomon out of your Bible. Get out the little that sharpie knife you got and cut that right out.
MISHLEI (Proverbs) 29:18s:
“18s. Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that guards the Torah, happy is he.”
So, Joshua here, the son of Nun, from the book of Yahusha in Chapter 1 reads like this,
YAHUSHA (Joshua) 1:8:
“8. This Cepher of the Torah shall not depart out of your mouth;
Oh, okay, the Torah shall not depart out of my mouth. What that means is take a scroll and stuffed it in your face and leave it in your mouth because it can’t depart out of there, right? No, again, it’s speaking metaphorically. The Cepher of the Torah shall not depart out of your mouth; that is to say, you can re-iterate what is written.
“8. but you shall meditate therein day and night, that you make guard to do according to all that is written therein:…”
Now, I want to take a second talk about this because when we look at the collapse of America, which is now upon us. The collapse of America is upon us, and it's going to be very acute this year. You will see it. And as this happens, the big question for many of the states now All right, well, what do we do? I want to ask you guys, do we make America great again? Like going back to the day Masonic order that led us here? Do we build back better? By going back to a conscripted and perverted way of leadership. So that we can go back into the idea of killing millions of innocent civilians worldwide? As we make our defense contractors richer and richer? Is that what we're going to do? I don't think so.
And I think the failure of the United States government right now calls in the whole creation of the nation into question, including its Constitution. The whole of the nation is now at question, including its Constitution. And we as a people, when we say what is proper governance, what is proper governance? I'm just going to ask you, what is proper governance? Should proper governance be whatever we want it to be? Should proper governance be a return to the secular state? Should proper governance be the three forms of power, tyranny, democracy, and oligarchy? Is that the proper form of government? And what about the social order?
You see, these are big, big questions. Because if you're given a blank slate, you know “tabula rasa,” as John Locke used to say. If you're given a blank slate, well, then you have to ask yourself the question, wait a minute, I got a blank slate. Now, what am I going to craft? What am I going to say? What's going to be the fundamental rules governing this social order? This is why this becomes important.
The Cepher of the Torah shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate therein day and night. We need to contemplate what is in the Torah. And we have the benefit; of course, we're not going to have the benefit very long. Because we have the benefit of history, and the instructions of history, which almost no one reads. But soon, we're not going to be able to look at that instruction anymore. Because we're going to go into a dark age where that most of the material will not be available to the vast majority of people. When we see the failure of the internet and the digital world. Then how are you going to know what happened before?
But if you looked at what happened before, we can see the trials and tribulations that resulted in the Magna Carta. We can see the trials and tribulations that change the Probate and Estate Law. We can see the trials and tribulations that changed the law of slavery. These are important instructions that when we look upon the Torah, we need to look on the entirety of the instruction, not merely the Torah of Mosheh. But the entirety of the instruction. When MASHIACH said to the Samaritan woman, ye know not what you worship. Ye who cling only to the Samaritan Torah. For salvation is of the Yahudiym and the Yahudiym read the Keviym and Neviym. The Yahudiym they read the Torah. They read the writings, and they read the prophets. And we, the Qodeshiym, read the Besorah, the Brit Chadashah, the New Testament, we read all of this. We read the apocrypha. And we read the books that were left out but were recently found in the histories.
Why do we read these? Because these are the instruction, the entirety of the Torah, not a little bit of the Torah, the entirety of the Torah. It's incumbent upon you to meditate upon these, to think about these days and night, that you might know what is the perfect will of YAHUAH. What did the author in Colossians just tell us? to know to seek out the will of YAHUAH with wisdom and spiritual understanding that is obtained by the knowledge of YAHUAH himself.
QOLOSIYM (Colossians) 1:19:
“19. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be dismayed: for YAHUAH ELOHAYKA is with you whithersoever you go.”
Halleluyah. And the Psalms here, Tehilliym 56:8-9.
TEHILLIYM (Psalms) 56:8-9:
“8. You tell my wanderings: put my tears into your bottle. Are they not in your cepher?...”
Are my tears not in your book of life?
“9. When I cry unto you, then shall my enemies turned back: this I know; for ELOHIYM is for me.
10. In ELOHIYM, will I praise his word: in YAHUAH, will I praise his word.
11. In ELOHIYM have I put my trust: I will not be afraid of what man can do unto me.”
In ELOHIYM have I put my trust, I will not be afraid of what men can do unto me.
And Lucas says,
LUQAS (Luke) 12:4-7:
“4. And I say unto you my friends: Be not afraid of them that killed the body, and after that have no more that they can do….”
You need to do what we tell you to do, or we're going to kill you. And we're going to kill you by the most despicable horrid, lousy rotten, meanest things we can ever possibly think of to do. That's, we're going to be ready to kill you that way. How's that grab you? Right?
This is MASHIACH speaking,
“5. But I will forewarn you whom eth- ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he has killed has power to cast into Gey Hinnom; Yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
6. Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before ELOHIYM?
7. But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.”
Halleluyah. Now, when we talk about faith, well, have faith, I'm going to have faith, not fear. Oh, well, that's good to hear. You're going to have faith and not fear. Let's ask that question. Well, what is faith? Well, here the writer in Hebrews is going to tell us,
IVRIYM (Hebrews) 11:1-3:
“1. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence, elentros “ἐκλεκτός eklektós” of things not seen.
2. For by it the elders obtained a good report.
3. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of ELOHIYM, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
Now, we've got some interesting teaching here. And it becomes very important. Now, I asked you earlier in the program here, which was what? Is there really a Russia? How many of you have been to Russia? If you haven't been there, is there really a Russia? Is there really a China? Is there really a Saudi Arabia? Is there really a Washington D.C? Is there really a New York City?
Now, these things are stuff that exists on the earth today. Was there really a Vietnam War? Was there really a World War One? Or is this all just nonsense? Was there really a civil war? Was there a revolutionary war that created this country? Or was that just a story made up by Mason's to give us some kind of something they can teach in the school? How many of you have seen Abe Lincoln? None of you? He died back in 1865. So how many of you saw him? None of you, did he exist?
You believe he exists just the same way you believe Homer's Odyssey. The same way you believe there was a Trojan War. The same way you believe there was a Western Roman Empire. The same way you believe there was a Charlemagne that there was a Frederick degrade, there was a William the Conqueror, or there was a King James the First. You never saw them. You never saw with your eyes. What was there? But you reckoned with the story that was handed to you? Well, this is a 1500-year-old building. Oh, is it really? Because somebody told you that's what it was. Do you know that? No. But you believe it because your logic and your reckoning ascertained by the testimony of two or more witnesses that the matter might be established.
Now, you know, there's a lot of stuff going on right now about the Tartarian Empire and about what kind of an empire was in Central Asia and how advanced it was. Many people believe that there was substantial infrastructure in North America; we're talking about modern infrastructure in North America before the colonists ever got to the western shore of North America. There were massive buildings; San Francisco has been constructed so on and so forth. What do we know about this? What about the Mayan record? What do we know about the Mayan record? What about the pyramids that are found in the water that have sunk off the coast of Jamaica, off the coast of Japan, off the coast of Crimea? What about those places? What do we know about this? What about these new pyramid sites that they found in northern Russia to be the largest pyramids in the world unless you count maybe the pyramids that are in Yugoslavia unless you count some of the pyramids that have sunk elsewhere? What do we know about all these things?
Well, faith is hypostasis. Now, hypostasis is the Greek word that’s found there, and we see what? Hypostasis which means the essence, faith is the essence of the things hoped for. So, you see that hypostasis, hypo it under, stasis is standing. Faith is the understanding. Faith is the understanding of things hoped for. Now, we talked about the understanding of things hoped for; what was our instruction from Colossians 1? Our instruction was to know the will of ELHOIYM with wisdom and spiritual understanding. So spiritual understanding is what, do we believe?
What was instructed to us in Exodus that, in fact, YAHUAH himself stood there face to face with the people at Mount Horeb and delivered the Torah? Delivered the Ten Devariym, delivered the Ten Commandments speaking to them. That which was recorded in Exodus 20. Do we believe the record of Enoch, Chanok, that was discovered in the Dead Sea scrolls that had been memorialized in the Ethiopian church for more than 2500 years? Do we believe this? These are big questions.
Well, we believe some things because we base them on what? The testimony of two or more witnesses. Because that is spiritual understanding, that is spiritual reckoning; you see because that's what's given to us in Scripture. The matter is established by two or more witnesses, assuming those witnesses have been born up under the burden of bearing true witness and not false witness. And so, we have faith is the understanding of things hoped for. The evidence, which, again, that is the proof, the proof of the things not seeing. What is the proof? The proof is the testimony of two witnesses.
So, when we determined that there are more than two witnesses for a matter, we can start to begin that it comes true. And when we start to see 100 witnesses or 1000 witnesses or more, we can reckon that these things are, in fact, reasonable to believe. Of the evidence, the evidence, faith is the understanding of the evidence of the thing that is not seen. Do you see this?
For by the evidence of the things not seen, by the understanding of the things not seen, and understanding of the things hoped for. The elders obtained a good report; through faith, we understand. Again, here's the link of faith to understanding through faith, we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of ELOHIYM. Now, when you see the word worlds there, we find in Greek “aion.” Well, that would translate into a simple understanding of English as “eons.” We understand that the worlds that is “aions,” the ages. And the ages mean what? The ages have everything in existence. If you talk about the age of America, you're necessarily including the geography of America. So, we talk about the ages, the ages of existence; through faith, we understand that the ages of existence, all of them, were framed by the Word of ELOHIYM. So that the things which are seen were not made by things which are seen.
When we look at this, we see a very interesting testimony because Genesis tells us that YAHUAH spoke existence into existence. And ELOHIYM said, Let there be light. And ELOHIYM said, Let there be creatures in the sea. And ELOHIYM said, right. And these things were made by the Word of ELOHIYM. The Word of ELOHIYM, which is something that is unseen. We can't see it, although I submit to you that the evidence of the Word is manifested before us.
As David says, The heavens declare the glory of YAHUAH. Why? Because when you look out into the heavens, if I were to ask, we're going to do a fifth-grade project here. What's the project? What we're going to do is we're going to give some kind of a rendition of what you think the voice of YAHUAH looks like if it were to take on a frequency. And I'm telling you right now; we don't have to make up a model. We just simply look out into the heavens and see the voice of YAHUAH as it has been spoken. That's his voice. That's what he did. And he did it out of something that which is not seen.
Now this is Ivriym Chapter 12,
IVRIYM (Hebrews) 12:1:
“1. Wherefore, seeing we are also compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight…”
I can't do this anymore. I just do. Okay, well, stop lugging that, right? Did you lay aside that weight and the sin which does so easily beset us? Because sin is right there, you know the flesh is always looking for sin.
“1. And the sin which does so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.”
Let go of that sin, and let us run with patience, the race that is set before us. Oh, okay, I know, wait a minute, let us run with patients who's ever done that? Well, you have to do it when you're called into this kind of a faith. You have to run a race with patience. Understanding that YAHUAH has an ultimate purpose in your life, and that his will be done in your life, if you allow it to be done. And you run the race of seeking his will through wisdom and spiritual understanding, that is made manifest in the knowledge of YAHUAH, such that you know the will that he has for you. And then you do run this race. Now, sometimes the race takes a long time, my friends. It took me a long time; it took me decades before I even got off the starting line. Because YAH had me over in the training camp. Okay, go over there and make that mistake. Oh, okay. All right. I got it. And don't duck. So, when you get hit alongside the head, you remember next time to duck. Well, wait a minute. I was, oh, I should have ducked. Yeah, you should have; you made error upon error. You walked face-first into a glass door, this kind of thing? You did all of these. Why? Because I was prepping you. And the fact that you survived it, I prepped you, and I prepped you, and I prepped you, and then I trained you.
Then I moved from this training to that training and that training to this training. So that you would obtain this understanding. Then I put your sword in the cold water with a test and a trial. That will the dross purge off that sword with a sword break? Don't know; we're going to find out, but you're going in. Well, wait a minute, that water is cold. Yeah. But now you're going to endure that with patience because you have a race to finish running. That race is for you to get on the racetrack that belongs to YAHUAH. It is one of those tracks on the inside of that race. You got a yellow line to the left of you and a yellow line to the right of you, and you're supposed to run inside that track and not go outside of that track.
IVRIYM (Hebrews) 12:2-4:
“2. Looking unto YAHUSHA the author and the finisher of our faith;”
If you love me, keep my commandments, says YAHUSHA sending you out to all nations to teach them to obey all that I have commanded. If you have the faith of a mustard seed, you will move the mountains before you. This is YAHUSHA,
“2. Who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of ELOHIYM.
3. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
4. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.”
We've talked about that a lot. Are we prepared to deal with the fact that the state's going to come and want to murder us? We told you to do what we want you to do. Well, I'm sorry, I can't do what you want me to do, because I don't do that. Well, we told you to do it. Well, I'm sorry. You are not my ELOHIYM, you are not YAHUAH, and no, I'm not going to do that because YAH told me I can't do it, and so I'm not going to do it. Well, we're going to kill you. Well, that's the way it goes. Well, we're going to kill you like this. Well, okay, that's the way that goes too.
Because why? Because MASHIACH just didn't die on the cross. It wasn't like, Okay, grab that guy, we got him, okay, shoot him in the head. Boom. End of story. No, that isn't what happened. No, no, no. Get him down here. Let's torture him a little bit. Put some thorns on his head. Get him up here, mock him, ridicule him, get that going for a while so he knows we can't stand you. You scumbag. You dirtbag. We don't like you, hate your guts. Okay, are we getting that message? Okay, good. Now take him over there and beat him into unrecognizable condition. Have you got him there yet? No, we're going to need a few more strokes with this piece of
barbed wire with some weight on the end. Okay, all right. We got all the time in the world, do what you need to do.
And so, after he gets beaten to within an inch of his life, now guess what? We're not shooting him in the head isn’t going to happen. No, you wish we were shooting you in the head. We're not doing that. Here, pick up this steak and carry it out there to where the skull was. Okay, all right. I think I can make it. Well, no, you can't. You can't even walk. We want you to carry this thing anyway. And then when they get there, what? Put some nails in the guy, put him up there, and nail him to the wood. How are we going to keep him there? Nail him, you know we like to use the Roman style. Which is what? Conserve the nail. We want some conservation here. Conserve the nail. Okay, all right. Okay, good. We got it. Then what, even then, it was like, have they died yet? No, not yet. We're expecting these two guys here who didn't get beaten to last a couple of days. This guy, we don't know how long it's going to last. But whatever. Think maybe a day, day and a half, whatever it's going to be.
Just leave them on there? Well, no, wait a minute. The Jews have come and said this guy has to die before sundown. Because if he doesn’t, they're going to be violating the Sabbath. Oh. Oh, okay. Well, look, those guys there are not going to be able to breathe if they can keep themselves up at the feet. So, break their legs. Oh, okay. Do not kill him. Don’t go and stab them in the heart with the sword. Oh, no, no, no, that isn't going to work. Because that would eliminate the torture. We know if we break their legs, they have maybe 20 minutes. So, break their legs. Okay, well, that's a good idea. I got it. I got the club right here. Wham, wham.
How much impact does it take to break the femur? A lot. A lot of impact. Especially if you're going for that compound fracture. What about this guy? Oh, I don't know. I don't have time to wait with it. Besides, I think he's already dead. Well, use your spear make sure we don't want the guy to live on. Okay, all right, I'll stab him. And blood and water come out.
So, it was in ignominious, shameful death where they executed him over in the landfill. They executed him over in the landfill. With the filthiest criminals, they could find stark naked, nailed to a cross, as shameful, and as disgraceful, and as painful as they could possibly make it. So, they come to us and say, and so he endured the cross, despising the shame that accompanied across that's what I'm trying to share with you now. There was shame accompanying that and to set down at the right hand of the throne of ELOHIYM, Amein.
For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your own minds. I'm weary. I can't do this anymore. I've had it. I can't do it. No, I can't do it anymore. I'm out of gas. That's it; I have had it; I am not up to it. I can't deal with it anymore. I can't handle it. But consider him that endured this contradiction of sinners against himself lest she be weird and faint in your own mind. Think what he went through, and how much he endured, yet have not resisted unto blood, you're not dead yet. You're not dead yet. Striving against sin.
Now, the Hebrews writer goes on to tell us what he says.
IVRIYM (Hebrews) 12:12-16:
“12. Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;
13. And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it be rather be healed.
14. Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see YAHUAH.
15. Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of ELOHIYM; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;
16. Lest there be any fornicator or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.”
This is a passage from 1 Samuel.
SHEMU’EL RI’SHON (1 SAMUEL):
“20. And Shemu’el said unto the people, Fear not: ye have done eth- all this wickedness: wickedness: yet turn not aside from following YAHUAH but serve YAH with all your heart;….”
Fear not even though you have done all this wickedness. And yet you did not turn aside and follow YAHUAH with all your heart.
“21. And turn the not aside: for then should ye go after vain things, which cannot profit nor deliver; for they are vain….”
Don’t do it; they are vain.
“22. For YAHUAH will not forsake his people for his great name’s sake: because it has pleased YAHUAH to make you his people….”
Halleluyah. And then, in John 14,
YOCHANON (John) 14:1-6:
“1. Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in ELOHIYM, believe also in me.
2. In my Father’s house there are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also….”
“4. And whither I go ye know, and the way he know.
5. Ta’om said unto him: ADONAI, we know not whither you go; and how can we know the way?
6. YAHUSHA said unto him: I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.”
And in John 14, he looks at them and says,
IVRIYM (Hebrews) 14:27:
“27. . Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you:….”
Or in Hebrew, Shalom, Shalom,
“27. not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
And in Ivriym, the writer says,
IVRIYM (Hebrews) 13:5-6:
“5. Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for YAHUAH has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.
6. So that we may boldly say, YAH is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”
And in Devariym Chapter 3:1-6, it is written,
DEVARIYM (Deuteronomy) 31:6:
“6. Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them. For YAHUAH ELOHAYKA, he it is that goes with you; He will not fail you, nor forsake you.
Amein, and Halleluyah brothers and sisters. So that is our discussion for this evening. I'm very glad you guys were with me at this point. And so, I just want to ask now, for those of you who might have questions, to go ahead and put those questions up. Maybe I can answer some of those questions.
COMMENTS AND QUESTIONS:
CAROLINE MCGREAL: A shocking image, the MASHIACH YAHUSHA suffering on a tree, forgive me/us Father YAH.
DR. PIDGEON: Caroline, yes, shocking image. When you see the kind of depth MASHIACH went through shocking image indeed. And the kind of shame they put him through and to claim that they would seek Barabas. The Son of the Father.
GINGER3855: If he is preparing a place for us, will it be a new earth or something else?
DR. PIDGEON: I believe it will be a new earth, it will be a new earth, you know, Heaven and Earth pass away, but there will be a new heaven and earth; I don't think it's going to be something that we can look at and say, oh, I figured this one out the new heaven and new earth, it's going to be like this. No, I think as it is a metamorphosis of what we have here, It's going to be a beautifully created and beautifully restored. Garden of Eden will be a beautiful place, A garden of Eden. But remember that the earth was created for him, not for us; it was created for him and not for us. And so, as a consequence, we have to recognize that the earth is a powerful place. A place where people can die from being exposed to it and that we are called to have dominion and stewardship over it. But dominion and stewardship over it requires us to think, requires us to have knowledge, wisdom, and understanding as to how we do this. Okay. So, this is very important.
CHAVAH SHALOM STACY L.: Where do we meet for Sabbath meeting?
DR. PIDGEON: Write me at Stephen@ Cepher.net. And that will give you those instructions.
CHELLE WAGNER: Is it possible that the greater Exodus could start this Passover?
DR. PIDGEON: You know, Chelle, I do think that that is possible, where that Exodus is to, I don't know. But I do think the greater Exodus could be starting this year. And the reason why is because I do believe the 10th plague of Egypt is upon us now. And we're going to see it. So, when we get into Passover, you guys need to think about making sure that you participate in Passover, at least in your community.
BIG SISCUITS: When he went through all of that, and not once complained, but when the lord his spirit, he cried out, why have you forsaken me? And all he lived is in that statement.
DR. PIDGEON: Well, it's very interesting because that statement, Eily, Eily, right? We know a couple of things. No, it's generally taken that Eily, Eily, was referring to my EL, my EL. But remember that his father's father, his grandfather, and his father's side, his name was also Eliy, and he was not at the cross. I will leave it at that.
STEPHANIE CROW: I have been in despair since the C 19 need prayer.
DR. PIDGEON: Hi, Stephanie. It's good to hear from you. You know, Stephanie, there's many who have, many, many, many who have. Because we have seen, you know, what we've called normal, be completely upended. And suddenly, our life as Americans began a cascade into no longer living as Americans. Suddenly prosperous, America was going into bankrupt America. Suddenly the Constitutional Republic was falling into a socialist-communist enterprise. And we're not done falling. I mean this, this plunge is going to be right off the cliff. And there will be no nation-state remaining from this.
Just as there was no Egyptian Empire following the greater Exodus, but what I'm saying to you is this, Stephanie, is something you really, really got to give some consideration to, Okay? Number one, maintain your fellowship with the brothers and sisters. Maintain those fellowships, stay in relationship. Number two, you have to build your prayer life as best you can. Pray at night before you go to bed; pray in the morning when you wake up. You want to have that prayer of bookends, if you will, of your waking hours. Have those prayer bookends. Also, concentrate. And talk it over with YAH in prayer. What he is doing in your life and what he is showing you. Because if you live a life that is static, while I'm doing this, this is where I live in this what my routine is, you may not be serving YAH at all. But when you give yourself over to his instruction, and you give yourself over to his will, he will put things in your life that will heal you. And that will lead you, and you need to trust in that, but you need to make sure it is of YAH and not something else. Make sure it is of YAH.
DEBBIE JOHNSON: Wow!! Brother Stephen, absolutely awesome study!!
DR. PIDGEON: Hey, thank you, Debbie Johnson; thank you for your comment. I really appreciate that. Thank you, sister.
EDITH CISNEROS: You mentioned earlier that we should be in covenant before participating in the Pecach Feast. What exactly does that mean?
DR. PIDGEON: Now, Edith, this is a good question. I can tell you. We had this discussion at the fellowship too. You know, the thing is that because we're on a journey far away from Yerushalaiym, we're called to the second Pecach, not the first Pecach. We are called to the second Pecach. Now, with that being said, when I say being in covenant, we're talking about knowing the covenant, and then the covenant is going to be something that we're going to be remembering at Pecach.
This is a covenant of the Brit Chadashah, when MASHIACH said, Is there a better Shabbat than me. This is the renewed covenant in my blood, diathēkē en tō haimati. And when he said this, this is a covenant that is a covenant of grace and mercy, as the Torah of YAHUAH is poured in your heart, mind, and soul. It is a covenant that respects the fact that the Ruach Ha’Qodesh is capable of filling you with not only his instruction, not only his counsel, not only his comfort for mourning, but also his healing power. That the Ruach is capable of all things, to give you boldness, to take your spiritual gifts and make them strong and powerful.
You might be able to go forth in boldness, but the covenant is that you believe that's the covenant. Do you believe YAHUAH created the heavens and the earth? You believe YAHUSHA is the Word of YAHUAH made flesh, who tabernacled among us? That by his sacrifice on the cross, and through his atonement, that we are healed and reconciled the Father is such that he does not see our sins any further but sees us as sanctified in the white linen of YAHUSHA. That's the covenant we're talking about. And if you believe those things, then you're welcome to take the Pecach; you can take the Passover.
LISA D TEAGUE PELLHAM: Is there anyone in the Dallas area? I am looking for fellowship.
DR. PIDGEON: You can check on the telegram, the Cepher Shabbat group on telegram. And there may be somebody who will give instruction in here, too, that you can meet people in the Dallas area. There's been over 29 Fellowship groups that have formed on telegram important to be in touch with one another. You may need one another. Whether or not we're on some kind of an underground railroad, or whether we're just trying to stay alive and eat. Okay, so keep that in mind.
COVER 2E: Pray fervently.
DR. PIDGEON: So true. It's so true.
JANE SMITH: Do you invite adult children to Passover who are willing to come but are not walking YAH?
DR. PIDGEON: Yes, yes. I would invite the adult children too. Remember, it's the second Passover, not the first Passover. The first Passover cleanliness is required for the first Passover. The second Passover is for the unclean and those who are journeying afar off. If they have an interest, but then come.
DR. PIDGEON: Okay, Stephanie, thank you. I'm going to pray for you today. Thank you. Okay.
DONALD SPHERE 7:20: I'm hearing in my ruach that my house is one, meaning my firstborn and my wife's firstborn live under their roofs. Is this correct?
DR. PIDGEON: Well, you know, Donald and Alicia, I love you guys. And thanks for being part of the Sabbath group. You know, I'm not sure I have an answer to that question. We talked about YAH’S house, right we are in YAH’S house, and his firstborn is YAHUSHA. I can tell you're participating in the Pecach taking of the bread and wine is covering your doorposts with the blood of the Lamb. And so, you know, many of you are already covered in the blood of the Lamb; you've been covered for years. So do not worry about this plague that is coming. You're covered under the blood of the Lamb.
The plague is coming, and it's going to come in; that's what's going to happen. And it's going to happen because YAH has hardened their hearts. YAH has done it. And until their hearts yield. And they're not going to yield until there is a dead person in every home. And that's coming in, and we'll be by the hand of YAHUAH because we will no longer talk about when YAHUAH brought us out of the land of Mitsrayim. We will talk about what YAHUAH is doing in the new Exodus and what he's doing with his people. And we'll talk more about that. Maybe this Saturday, Don and Alicia.
VALERIR GARZA: If man is not circumcised in the flesh, can he observe Pecach?
DR. PIDGEON: Well, the Torah, Valerie, know that you're asking that. The Torah is very clear that in the first Pecach, it is for the circumcised in the flesh. But unless you're in Jerusalem, you're supposed to keep the second Pecach anyway, which can be held by the circumcised and the uncircumcised, and those who are on a far-off journey and the uncleaned can participate in the second Pecach.
And that is probably going to be in May because the first Pecach is in April?
TRIXY TRUE: Will all Egypt’s plagues be repeated?
DR. PIDGEON: Well, not really. Because of what we're seeing, Trixie, thank you for that question. What we're seeing is this. The plagues are going to be numerous, and their plagues are numerous. I mean, come on, guys. Let's look around at what we've been seeing. Volcanoes going off, earthquakes all over the place, massive winter storms, major cyclones, and hurricanes. All kinds of inordinate things. All of these things, inordinate flooding it, and you hear it over and over again, record., record, record. Well, there's records, and some people say, well, it's with weather wars. Well, I don't think it is; I think it's the hand of YAH. He's doing incredible things on the earth. And these things are going to become more and more pushing towards a climax.
And in the meantime, with all of these things happening, Pharaoh's hearts are hardening. They harden. Let my people go, that we may go and worship YAHUAH who says, we’re not going to be deceived by sorcery or pharmakeia. We're not going to be deceived by that. And we're not going to take the mark of the beast. And therefore, you must let us go. Let us go. Let us go.
And they said we’re not going to do that. We're going to increase. We're going to increase the burden. We're going to take away the straw; we're going to make you make bricks with no straw. We're going to cut your meals down. We're going to do this. We're going to take your children. We're going to do this, and this. Because their hearts are hardening, YAH is going to have the final say, and eventually, their heart will soften. And when it does, the Empire of Egypt will be no more.
JEN B: Someone I had recently fellowshipped with stated YAHUSHA HA’MASHIACH was created by YAH.
DR. PIDGEON: Yes, sure, that isn't what we call an Aryan doctrine? An Aryan doctrine and the Aryan doctrine is a doctrine, well, Aryan was much more specific about it, that YAHUSHA did not exist until it was born. And that is opposed to the document of Consubstantiality, that was a 500-year debate that took place with the beginning of the codification of the Gospels, and the Antiochian position was Aryan. And eventually, that argument was settled, but it wasn't settled till about 550 A.D. And even now, we see there's religions that have sprung up all over the world that continue to teach the Aryan doctrine. That MASHIACH was conceived and didn't exist before conception.
But you see, in John 1, a lot of that has to do with denying the Gospel of John. Because in John, it says that, in the beginning, the Word was with ELOHIYM, and the Word was ELOHIYM. And that that Word was made flesh and tabernacled among us. And you know, and again, you see that this is a statement of what's called Consubstantiality. That YAHUSHA MASHIACH was present with you in the beginning. But you have to remember when you use the phrase in the beginning; YAH has no beginning and no ending. Here's an infinite expression. Only the Rakia existence, only existence has beginning. That's why Scripture opens up the phrase, “In the beginning,” because we're talking about something that is finite, something that was created, and that creation springs from YAHUSHA. See?
TURN BACK TO TRUTH: Ezk 14, 4 judgments come on the earth.
DR. PIDGEON: Well, I haven't had a chance to talk about that. But I will at some point, but I can't get to it right now.
VIVIAN MEDFORD: Is it okay to partake in both Pecach?
DR. PIDGEON: Yes. If you are clean, then yes, you can.
TAZ MARTEL: Netsariym means watchmen or branches?
DR. PIDGEON: Because when you're talking about “netsar.” “Netsar” is a branch. “Netsariym” is the plural branches. So, when MASHIACH says a knee nets are a TA. And that's how Giffin I am, no excuse me, I need like a fan. And that's I mean, I am the vine, you are the branches, “ani ha’geffen, attach ha’netzeriym.”
OLD TIMER: Does that mean we should not celebrate the first Passover?
DR. PIDGEON: Technically, again, if you're not clean, you should not observe the first Passover. And secondly, you're supposed to be in Jerusalem for the first Passover. And if you're not there, then you shouldn’t. If you’re on a journey far away, is how the Torah puts it, then you should keep the second Passover.
DR. PIDGEON: Hey, thanks, Sharon, for the compliment of the sweatshirt. The sweatshirt is done by Jeremiah and Chelsea. It's made here in the deep wilds of Alaska. And if you write me at Stephen@cepher.net, and so you want one, I'll forward it to Jeremiah; he will contact you. And he will get your size, and your color preference, and all that, and you can pick one up okay.
CHRISTINA STEELE: Do you have to eat lamb on Passover?
DR. PIDGEON: Absolutely not. Christina. No. some people do eat lamb on Passover, but there should be no animals slaughtered for the purposes of the Passover meal because the blood has already spilled.
DR. PIDGEON: Thank you, Camilla. Thank you.
All right, you guys. I want to thank you for being with me in this presentation tonight. And I hope I have put you in a direction where you can find a way to live in faith and not fear. All those years that you practice your faith journey, your prayers, and all of that amounts to your journey, your studies so far. Let that be your strength, and let the Ruach Ha’Qodesh inhabit you to remove all fear. To give you spiritual boldness. To give you counsel. To give you comfort, to give you healing.
That you might be able to stand strong and recognize that nothing is happening to you without YAH’S permission. You will not perish unless YAH says it's going to happen. And at that time, it was YAH’S will for you anyway. So, between now and then, let us discover what it is that YAH has put in your life and follow it. Thank you, brothers and sisters, and I will see you next time on Cepher Academy, and Thursday nights as usual. Visit us at Cepher.net if you're interested in the Hebrew class Cepher Academy.net. iI you want to contact me personally, Stephen@ cepher.net. Thank you. Thank you. Hey, thank you for saying that, Debbie. Yeah, Katie comes by and says, Hey, let's do some recording. I'm like, you know, you're getting the old man out here to play. But I love to play, you know, so that's what we do. Right?
All right. Shalom. Shalom brothers and sisters. See you next week.
