For every man the journey begins with his first birth into some kingdom of men. To progress in that journey he must leave the kingdom of his birth and the elohim (gods – lawmakers and judges) he has always served and come into service with only Yehovah.
But then, what does it mean to be “Born Again“? We all have our own religious and traditional ideas. But what is its scriptural basis? We know that it has to predate Nicodemus, sinceÂ Yeshua (Jesus) rebuked Nicodemus for being a teacher ofÂ Israel and not understanding this second birth. Nicodemus, who was a later disciple of Yeshua and a Pharisee just like Paul, had great knowledge and understanding concerning the scriptures. So why do we treat him as though he could not understand a, supposedly, simple concept? Perhaps it is not that simple.
Is it possible that the scriptural basis of this new birth has roots in history that even predate Yehovah’s (the LORD’s) instructions given to Moses at Mount Sinai? Is it possible that the journey many people feel they have already completed is far more complex and life changing than most folks have ever imagined? Please join me as we develop a solid foundation for our faith; and renew our minds to that good, and acceptable and perfect will of Yehovah. Only then we can worship the Creator in spirit and in truth.
O Yehovah, my strength and my fortress, My refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come to You from the ends of the earth and say, “Surely our fathers have inherited lies, worthlessness and unprofitable things.” (Jer 16:19)

I am interested in getting the studies, though I am in Germany and unsure if I could actually talk “face/voice to face/voice” due to the time differences and my small children.
Greetings to you. I was wondering if you have written anything concernng divorce and
remarriage? My wife of 30 years left me and the children for another man. She got married within a year of our divorce. It has been very difficult for all of us but we are depending on the Father’s promises.
I look forward to hearing from you. I am continuing to read/watch what you have available on the site. I have found encouragement and hope in your messsages.
Oh Rusty – I ache when I hear about marriages being torn apart. I too had my wife leave me but she stole my children also. I wept many times per day for at least two years, every time I thought of my family. I could not have understood what I am about to say to you but now I understand it fully. You will never be pleasing to Yehovah by keeping an unfaithful wife. It is best that she left. Now you are free to find a woman that will love and follow you.
Most of the blogs that I have written are designed to help women understand how important their covering, their man, is to them; that they are to stay with their man and encourage him to follow Yehovah wholly. And when he does, they both get blessed!
The closest writing I have that answers your question is http://weareisrael.org/2012/11/15/divorcees-and-fatherless-4/. Once your ex has been with another man she can never return to you. Deuteronomy 24:1-5 make that very clear.
If you would like to talk I am always available. Please, give me a call Rusty; I know the pain.
Hi Rusty! I found your comment again today (five years later) and realized that I have written much more on divorce and remarriage. Here are a couple links.
Divorce & Remarriage (4 parts)
I ache for men like you (and me) who have been left by their women. I was fortunate enough to find a Woman Of Worth (http://weareisrael.org/woman-of-worth/ ) almost 3 years and now my life is so much fuller.
Enjoy the teaching God bless you.. I would like to know the Bible you use.
Thanks so much! I teach from the New King James Version (I’ve learned its idiosyncrasies and know what to watch out for) though I use many versions for study. For me the Hebrew is the ultimate authority.
I really need to know more.
Hi Faith! You might consider going through my Torah teachings. Here they are.
Thank you for the knowledge.
Thanks Michael! This is something given to me by Yehovah and I have never heard anyone else teach it. I think it has been lost and forgotten for many generations. Thankfully many men are beginning to see the light.
Do you still believe Jesus died for your sins. I don’t.
I dismissed that fable from my mind about eight years ago.
