Mysterious Word TODAY In Deuteronomy

Approximately 50 times Moses talks about this mysterious word TODAY in Deuteronomy.

Our lesson began with us seeing, what appears to be, two covenants which Yehovah made with Israel’s seed (falsely know as “the children of Israel”).  One covenant  was made at Horeb/Sinai (with the Elohim on the mountain) and another covenant in Moab.

These are the words of the covenant which Yehovah commanded Moses to make with Israel’s seed in the land of Moab, separate from the covenant which He made with them in Horeb. (Deu 29:1)

Has Yehovah really made two covenants with Israel’s seed? What does it take to make a covenant with Yehovah? And how does Passover fit into these understandings?

A covenant, a ber·eeth, requires the slaughter of an animal. Did that happen with these men in Moab?

Moses starts using this mysterious word TODAY in Deuteronomy 1 and continues through chapter 32.

Today in DeuteronomyYehovah, your Elohim has multiplied you, and here you are today, as the stars of heaven in multitude. (Deu 1:10)

But you who held fast to Yehovah, your Elohim are alive today, every one of you. (Deu 4:4)

To whom is Moses speaking?

“Therefore you shall love Yehovah, your Elohim, and keep His charge, His statutes, His judgments, and His commandments always. Know today that I do not speak with your sons, who have not known and who have not seen the chastening of Yehovah, your Elohim, His greatness and His mighty hand and His outstretched arm—His signs and His acts which He did in the midst of Egypt, to Pharaoh king of Egypt, and to all his land. (Deu 11:1-3)

Because we have failed to see just who the men are who have Yehovah as their only Elohim; we have created many false images in or minds that prevent us from gaining even deeper understandings concerning Yehovah’s word and ways..

What day is this mysterious TODAY in Deuteronomy and what makes it special? And why is there so much written in Deuteronomy that DOES NOT agree with Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers? Is it possible that these two questions have related answers?

We had much to talk about this week and I hope you will enjoy this lesson as much as we did.

Gather To Me My Saints

gather to me my saints“Gather to Me My saints [חסידי, khaw·seed’ – literally, “My kind“], who cut [כרתי, kaw·rath’] a covenant [בריתי, ber·eeth – a cutting] with Me by slaughter [זבח, zeh’·vakh].” (Psa 50:5)

My NKJV and most versions say,

“Gather My saints together to Me, Those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice.” (Psa 50:5)

Oh my – the translators are not our friends. They are, for the most part, men who lack many understandings. They leave out words, change words, invent words and even add words all the time. Our only safety is in digging into the Hebrew.

gather to me my saints
Passover slaughter

Their word “sacrifice” is a “christian” word made up by the translators to lead you away from Yehovah’s covenant which a “man,” an eesh, enters into or renews with Yehovah every Passover. The word being translated as “sacrifice” is the Hebrew word “zeh’·vakh” and a zehvekh is ALWAYS something that Israel eats, most often with their families, their servants and the Ger who dwell with them!

This verse in Psalms 50 is contrasted with another verse in the same chapter. Here it is.

But to the wicked Elohim says: “What right have you to declare My statutes, or take My covenant [בריתי, ber·eeth’ – a cutting] in your mouth [פיך, peh] … (Psa 50:16)

Ooooh, Myyyy, Elohim, isn’t this what I keep saying? Only the Ezrach men (along with those who dwell under their authority) who have entered into covenant with Yehovah at Passover will make it into the millennial kingdom. EVERYONE else on the earth will perish in the coming last days.

Gather to Me My saints

Every Friday night from Sukkot to Passover I give of my time to help aid Yehovah to “Gather to Me My saints” by teaching my series of classes called “The process of becoming as one born in the land” in order for you to learn how to live through the last days of this world. The vast majority of us, are not ready! We don’t “get it!” NO MAN eats the passover until he has, repented, left the kingdom of his birth and joined himself to Yehovah and His called-out people; and until he eats the Passover, no man is in covenant with Yehovah .

If you will not come to the classes, then at least read the articles on how a Gentile becomes a Ger, how a Ger becomes an Ezrach (as one born in the land) and how to celebrate a real Passover.

We have learned so many, lies and even have unmarried, uncovered women thinking they are in covenant with Yehovah. Augh!

How DOES a woman become a part of the covenant with Yehovah? The answer in found in her relationship to her man. But a woman with no man in her life is lost and will perish with everyone else. NOW is the time to learn to become a woman of worth and begin to see how all these pieces fit together.

“Whom will he teach knowledge? And whom will he make to understand the message? Those just weaned from milk? Those just drawn from the breasts? [NO!] For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little.” (Isa 28:9-10)

Psalms 50 is all about the final Yom Kippurim on this side of the great day, which happens just before Yehovah returns in a cloud. He is going to gather His saints by separating those men from among Israel who have eaten the Passover with good and pure hearts from those who have eaten it with wicked and uncircumcised hearts; and once He does, the great day of Yehovah will commence.


Zimri And Cozbi

zimri and cozbi

Israel has just finish defeating the two powerful kings of the Amorites, Sihon and Og of Bashan; they were the dreaded enemies of both Moab and Midian. Now that we were able to destroy the Amorites so easily, Moab and Midian both fear that they will be the next to fall to us.

Instead of fighting us directly, they have put together a plan to undermine Israel’s son’s relationship with Yehovah. After a summer campaign on the east side of the Jordan we have gathered at Shittim on the plain of Moab to spend the winter before we start a new campaign on the west side of the Jordan in the spring.

It appears to me that some of Israel (remember they are the ezrach men) have become complacent and perhaps willing to covenant with our enemies instead of destroying them. Some of us began to take their daughters, eat their meat which has not been slaughtered to Yehovah and, worst of all, bowed down and served other elohim (lawmakers and judges) besides Yehovah.

And he, Israel abode in Shittim, and the people became wanton for Moab’s  daughters [בנות, benot], and they [Moab] called to the people to slaughter [לזבחי, zeh-vach] to their elohim (lawmakers and judges), and they did eat; and the people bowed down to their elohim. (Num 25:2-3)

Incidentally, eating meat slaughtered to other elohim is what we do when we buy beef, lamb or goat at the grocery store.

Big, big mistake! Yehovah (40 years before) said, Continue reading Zimri And Cozbi

Meat Sacrificed To Idols (Sacrifice vs Slaughter) – 2


Yehovah speaks to His spiritually born men who have knowledge, understanding and wisdom that most men do not; just as he spoke to Ezekiel.

“Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house [family] of Israel [these are all of Yehovah’s spiritually born men, His ezrach, His seed, Israel]; therefore hear a word from My mouth, and give them warning from Me: (Eze 3:17)

First he warns the wicked men of the earth.

When I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul. (Eze 3:18)

Then he warns his own people, the righteous men, those who are, or were, learning and doing the ways that lead to life.
