Ok, you have my serious attention. I have studied your Paul book and the Introduction to God book and am now working on the Yada Yahowah book, but let me explain.

I've been a normal Christian (??) since 1984, a Messianic since 1988 and I have been trying to keep the Torah entirely as I thought I understood it since 2000. But this material is rattling my cage. I am concerned (frightened even) that I have been doing something wrong. I love Yahowah with all my heart and I figured out a couple years ago that Paul was a liar, but here is what I need.

Without plowing through hundreds of pages (which I am willing to do) of this book, do you have a brief teaching or outline on what you have determined is necessary to follow Torah, keep the Feasts, and please the Almighty? With the accent on BRIEF. I am not getting any younger here.

I am extremely impressed with your scholarship and your humility. Also, if you could answer a few specific questions perhaps...?
Thanks,
W

W,

Congratulations. It's tough to walk away from the religion of one's birth. I'm impressed that you are among the few who has been able to figure out the outright dishonesty of Paul.

I have found that most Messianics have blended Pauline Christianity with Rabbinic Judaism and thus are following two errant religions. It's good in the sense that it accepts the Torah rather than rejects it, but on the other hand, with the Pauline appeal, it contradicts what it accepts.

I wrote www.AnIntroductionToGod.com expressly for my youngest son who had asked me for a brief and direct explanation of what I had learned and had come to understand about Yahowah. It is the "briefest" and most direct answer I can muster.

Yahowah does not do "brief." The joy is in the process of discovery and learning. It is what we will be doing for all eternity.

I was 50ish when I came to take Yahowah's words seriously. I'm in my 60s now. Moseh (Moses) was 80. Abram was of a similar age. Age does not matter.

An Intro to God begins by providing you with the tools to verify my translations for yourself and then to do your own translations, which is where the real fun begins. It then presents the Covenant.

So if you want the most direct, most succinct approach to knowing the most important things about Yah, I'd read enough of my intro on http://anintroductiontogod.com/ to know that my thoughts are irrelevant. Then I'd encourage you to read enough of the opening chapter on His Word (http://anintroductiontogod.com/An_Introduction_to_God-01.0-Dabar-His_Word.Torah) to appreciate the process that goes into preparing these translations. Once you are comfortable with the means I'm using to convey Yahowah's words, then jump ahead to His Covenant (http://anintroductiontogod.com/An_Introduction_to_God-04.0-Beryth-His_Covenant.Torah). Nothing is more important than the Covenant. It has 5 conditions and 5 benefits. Once you are right with the Covenant, you have nothing to worry about.

That said, you will have a lifetime of learning ahead of you. And for that, I'd jump back to the Volume on His Teaching and read the Chapter devoted to the 119th Psalm (http://anintroductiontogod.com/An_Introduction_to_God-03.3-Towrah-His_Teaching.Torah). Dowd (David) answers all of our questions on how to properly observe the Towrah (Torah).

There is no one in all of human history that Yah loves more than Dowd, and yet Dowd was a bad boy. So Dowd's life and inspired Mizmowr reveal that being tsadaq- righteous and upright, vindicated and right is based upon what we know, not what we do, on our response to what matters, not on obedience.

Fundamentally, Towrah means "teaching and guidance" not "law," and it is to be understood, not obeyed. Yah's towrah provides directions on how to know God and instructions on how to engage in a relationship with Him. It is really that simple.

Each of the Miqra' exist for a specific purpose. Observe that purpose and celebrate it.

Hello and thanks for writing back!
My main questions are with the day to day practice of this. I have read all of Introduction to God (I think) and Questioning Paul and am trying to work my through Yada Yahweh.
For example, you seem to spiritualize laying Tefilin. Do you think it is wrong or idolatrous to do it (the customary way as in rabbinical lore)? You see, since much of my understanding of prayer and devotion comes out of the rabbinical stuff (Siddur, etc.) - is all of that evil, or is it just a waste of time?
If the latter, beside studying Torah, how do we spend our devotional time to get more and more set apart for Him?

I would appreciate some insights on this, because these practices have been a part of my life for around 15 years and if they are displeasing to Yah, I would like to know.
Thanks and be blessed!

Yahowah never asks us to pray to Him. He does not ask us to practice anything, either. He is overtly opposed to religion and religious expression, most keenly that of Rabbinic Judaism. So do not do as they do.

Yahowah asks us repeatedly to listen to Him and to observe (closely examine and carefully consider) what He has to say. The only way to do that is to read and recite His Torah, Prophets, and Psalms. That is how I converse with Him. That is how I demonstrate my love and respect for Him. I rather like what He has to say. I find it enlightening, empowering, liberating, and stimulating. He's brilliant.

I avoid all religious gestures, especially religious dress-up. Even with the instructions on food, I've come to see all of them as guidance regarding what is good and bad for us to consume, having very little to do with meat. Moreover, there are two specific instructions which tell us that we can eat anything so long as we are thoughtful about it - one of which is in the Towrah and the other from Yahowsha'.

That said, so long as you are not doing it to be seen by men, or to express your affinity for Judaism, then there is nothing wrong with wearing a Tefilin. Just don't do it in the custom or manner of the Rabbis. And only do it if you are doing so to express your understanding and appreciation of what it represents. It won't save you. It won't endear you to Yah. Rabbinical Jews wear it and they are estranged from Him.

I not only see the Torah for what it actually is - teaching and guidance - I recognize that Yahowah wants to liberate us, not control us. He is not a "Lord." He does not even have a word to express "obey." These two realizations, combined with an understanding of why Yahowah loves Dowd despite his bad behavior, are key.

Based upon what the Towrah reveals, Yahowah wants us to get to know Him as He reveals His nature in His Towrah. If we like Him, if we respect Him, if we come to love Him based upon who He actually is, then Yahowah wants us to act upon the five terms and conditions of the Covenant. And we do that in part by disassociating from all forms of religion and politics and then by walking to Yahowah along the Miqra'ey path He has provided, celebrating these Invitations with Him for what they represent. Beyond that, He wants us to closely examine and carefully consider the instructions and conditions of the Covenant, which requires us as men to be circumcised, also circumcising our sons as the "sign" of the Covenant.

Beyond that, relax and enjoy the relationship.

The most important things are as follows:
1. Come to know, like, respect, revere, and love Yahowah's nature and name based upon who He is and in accordance with the way He revealed Himself in His Towrah. If you are going to introduce yourself as being something, ditch the Christian and Messianic titles and call yourself Yahowah's.
2. Come to know, understand, and then act upon the five instructions and conditions of the Covenant. Celebrate the Family Relationship thereafter.
3. Answer Yahowah's seven Invitations, doing so by reading and reciting His Towrah instructions regarding these days. This is His one and only path home.
4. Set the Shabat apart from the other six days each week, making it a special time to celebrate your relationship with Yahowah.
5. Explore Yahowah's guidance, closely examining and carefully considering what He has to say.

If you'd like to know more than what I've translated and presented in ITG, YY, and QP, consider listening to the radio archives for YadaYah Radio and Shattering Myths on Richard's www.BlessYahowah.com site. We almost always go well beyond the insights and commentary found in the books.

These are some of the insights and conclusions I've come to know and share based upon observing Yah's Word. You may have others, some different, which is fine so long as they too are based in Yahowah's teaching. I'm routinely impressed with the insights others glean from His Word.

I'm nobody special. I'm flawed like Dowd. I make mistakes. So it is important that you rely on Yahowah, not me. I share what I've learned because I cannot do otherwise, but that does not mean that everything I've come to know is right. I'm learning and growing too.

Hi Yada,

It struck me that Yahowah's protection for those Covenant Family members trumpeting truth and renouncing man's religious, political, military, media, and educational institutions, is rather extraordinary given we are to endure through the dark hours preceding the arrival of the light - aka Yahowah's return on Yowm Kippurym in 2033.

This would infer that we are to be present during the nuclear exchange of the Magog War aftermath, if I am properly understanding the thrust of this wonderful promise.

With America in the frontline of a nuclear attack, and with many Covenant brothers and sisters living in the USA, it would seem Yahowah's protection even extends to nuclear war and nuclear fallout.

I do however, find this somewhat contrary to the Revelation statement that the Covenant Family are to be removed prior to the time of Tribulation, and immediately following the fall of Damascus, the 'peace' treaty that thins Yisra'el at the waist, and the all Muslim Magog attack on Yisra'el as detailed in Yasha'yah.

Could the first twelve months of the Tribulation 2026-27, be the darkness Yahowah is referring to, or are we likely to remain as witnesses right to the mid point of the Tribulation after which all choice is rendered moot following universal acceptance of the mark of the Beast.

Immediately preceding this time will be the asteroid strike and so the world will experience a really dark 2029.

Following the universal acceptance of the Beast's mark, there will still be work to do in leading the relatively few dissenters who refuse the mark, to the truth.

Are Psalm 91, Yahowchanan's Revelation and Yasha'yah's prophecy all speaking of the same thing?

Perhaps those Covenant Family members who are sharing Yahowah's Words with the world and openly renouncing all religions especially and including Islam and Christianity, are the subject of Psalm 91.

We are the useful implements doing the work Yahowah requests we do so perhaps it is the few of us on the frontline who are required to stay, under Yahowah's protection, until the arrival of the light, being welcomed into the new millennial Shabat as old warriors for truth.

I am very happy publicly declaring Yahowah's Towrah and publicly denouncing all religions and especially Islam and Christianity. I am happy to continue doing this through the seven years of the Tribulation if required.

Dowd, my friend,

I think that the best indication of timing for Taruw'ah is found in Yasha'yah 17, when the harvest is positioned between the thinning of Yisra'el and the Muslim onslaught. This could be any time from the forfeiture of the West Bank to the 2027 invasion phase of the Magog War. We have assumed that the treaty marks the start of the Tribulation, but it could come a year or so before, I suppose. In this way Revelation could be read as an early exit, but since the Time of Ya'aqob's Troubles has two phases as you have stated, we could be kept out of the second half and still find the Greek translation of Yahowsha's Hebrew comments to be accurate.

All this known, I think I may have tried to read too much into the opening line of the Psalm. Protecting us through the night could be a reference to our time, because it is plenty dark. I opened the door to a later harvest because I prefer to be open minded and to show why I am not dogmatic. I think it is a good practice to explore the edges of everything and then only pull back when other information requires a limit.

I would be happy to remain. This is a great job. So while I'm open to a longer stay, I still suspect that we will be out of here in 2026 or 2027, but no later than the Muslim invasion of Yisra'el whenever that occurs. But since we have all eternity to be with Yah and with one another, the longer we stay the better it is for others.

I agree, P91 was written for all of us in Yah's Covenant Family. We are all doing our part and Yah is doing His. This is a great time to be engaged in the mission. We are fortunate.

Yada,
As I was reading O8, it struck me that there may be a subtlety in the concept of a week that has been staring us in the face. Why are there 7 days in the week? Was it simply from the ‘bible’ that we got that concept? My thoughts which you may find convoluted are:
Six divides very nearly into 365.25 so it would seem reasonable that for ease of determining times, six would have been better chosen as the number of days in a week. There would then have been just under 61 weeks in a year – 60.875. The difference is .015 or one eighth of a week so calendar corrections would only be needed every 8 years exactly for the solar cycle. The sidereal month is 29.3 days and the synodic is 29.53 days. These numbers divide very nearly by 6. Considering the sidereal month, after 12 orbits of the moon around the earth, the error becomes 8.4 days. After 5 years the error becomes 42 days which is 7 weeks for a system with a 6 day week. So a simple way of arranging a calendar with a 6 day week would be to correct the sun cycle by 1 week every 8 years and the moon cycle by 7 weeks every 5 years or 8.4 days annually or just under a day per month. The problem with using the sidereal month is that the sun and moon cycles would no longer be phase locked - they would slowly drift apart. Consider instead the synodic period of 29.53 days. For a 6 day week, the error is now 0.47 days which works out to 5.64 days per year. For a 6 day week this would 0.94 weeks. After 25 years for a 6 day week (error of 141 days exactly over 25 years) the sun and moon phases would again be aligned so that approximations based upon observations of the moon phases would be sufficient most of the time with accurate corrections being made every 25 years or multiples thereof – such as the yowbel. The moon cycle is not as neat as the sun-cycle but both can be accurately reset after 25 and 8 years respectively so the calendars would be accurate without further observations by very simple calculations and by keeping track of the months and years centuries into the future – (neglecting orbital variations of the earth and moon).

I wonder whether the 7 day week with the 7th day ‘hidden’ from most people giving non-covenant members a 6 day week was what Yah intended. Indeed, if you take the ‘one day for a thousand years’ analogy then that is exactly what has/will happen. In Bare’sith there were 6 ‘days’ of creation followed by 1 ‘day’ after the week had ended but that day was only available to covenant members. 6 days were allotted to men and women who are doomed to die, 7 to those whose physical bodies die sometime during the six days but are reborn spiritually on the 7th. Most people think of 7 days of creation but there was really only 6 in that mankind was created to decide whether to be with Yah or not during those 6 ‘days’ Covenant members are also ‘created’ during those 6 days but only the covenant members move on to the seventh day.

Yah is invisible and will always be invisible to most. Only covenant members will be able to see Him on the 7th day – a day hidden to goym. Every yowbel the clocks are reset, debts (material and spiritual) forgiven and slaves freed (material and spiritual slaves) The seventh day is invisible to goym in that even though they pass through it in this existence they don’t know what it is or understand its significance. In other words both Yah and the 7th day are hidden from goym.

This reasoning may be a bit of a stretch. Feel free to disagree.

Roy,

If I'm following you correctly, your argument is that by every standard, six makes more sense for tracking time than seven, therefore the seventh day lies outside the normal approach and understanding of man.

Supporting this, the first religious, scientific, political, and academic civilization to memorialize their thinking in writing was Sumer, of which Ur was the capital. Abram was from Ur. It is what he walked away from. In Sumer, they invented the sixty based counting system, using it to mark time and direction. A clock and a compass are 60 based systems. So, why didn't the Babylonians, Assyrians, Egyptians, Persians, Greeks, and Romans use six rather than seven days in a week.

I think you have hit on the answer. It was established by Yahowah for His Covenant Family. It is there for us to see and enjoy, clear and obvious, but remains unknown and misunderstood for all others.

Was this your point?

Roy wrote:
Yada,
Yes, you have summarized it very well (or should I say Sumer-ised it very nicely). I came at it from the POV that the current system is very cumbersome requiring months of odd lengths, leap years and constant corrections by observation. The Sumerians must have had a great deal of knowledge of the sun and moon phases to be able to come up with a presumptive 6 day week. From the maths it is the obvious solution, and though still a little cumbersome it is easy to correct errors as I have shown. (I suspect the Sumerians came up with the 60 based counting system following the discovery that a 6 day week was the easiest to use following their study of celestial dynamics. The number of seconds in a minute, the number of minutes in an hour would follow and 24 hours would follow because each day is a fixed period of time so 15 degrees is one hour of ‘movement’ of the sun across the sky, something that is easy to measure and is one quarter of 60).

From the POV of an elegant solution Yah would have chosen a 6 day week but He wanted to show that there is more than man’s view of existence as being simply on this earth for a short time and then oblivion.
He needed the extra day to show that there is something to follow if and only if we follow His Torah and become covenant members. Hence the 7 day week which came from Yah via the Hebrew scriptures. (I suspect the 7 day week was actually established from the time of Mosheh when he was given the Torah and wrote down the book of Bare’seyth. Abram may have walked away from the politics and religions of Ur but he probably didn’t walk away from the 6 day week with which he grew up).

So the significance of the 7th day was hidden from most people – and still is. Everybody knows there are 7 days in the week but most behave as if there are 6 for the business of living and the 7th is there for them to enjoy as best they can. People look forward to ‘their’ day when they can enjoy life before they have to return to the drudgery of the 6 day week. Interestingly, the whole of mankind (as far as I’m aware) follows this 7-day week pattern, even those who would vociferously deny they were following Yah’s plan. That would include Islam, Hinduism and of course socialist secular humanism. If I am correct the influence of the chosen people has been spectacular to say the least – another indication of their importance.

Roy,

After a two hour search, my conclusion is the same as yours. The seven day week was introduced to Abraham on his way out of Sumer/Babylon and then confirmed in writing to Moseh in the Towrah. While the world does not understand it, everyone outside of the Covenant has adopted a corruption of it.

I've read a dozen articles on the 7 day week, and they are all inconclusive. There is absolutely no early extant affirmation of a seven day week apart from the Towrah. But it seems that even with their love of 60, and thus 6, Sumer, may have shown an affinity for a 7 day week with, Geuda, a priest/king who was among the first to pronounce himself a god, ruling sometime around 2100 BCE. He is recorded establishing 7 temples for himself with accompanying festivals lasting 7 and 14 days. But it's just a footnote in his history and there is no record of these temples or festivals being used to establish a seven day week. In fact, apart from the Towrah, there is no extant reference to a seven day week, or even a six day week for seven hundred to 1000 years thereafter, and acceptance was spotty and inconsistent around the world.

The first reference to four seven day weeks within a lunar month may have been based upon the moon being a god and the 4 phases, new, first quarter, full, last quarter, each lasting just over 7 days. The poem addressing this is from a Babylonian/Assyrian creation account dating to the 7th century BCE. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Week The Harvard professor who provided a "free" translation of it, epitomizes knowing without understanding.

The seven day week did not become universal even in Rome until Constantine in 400CE. They used 8 days previously. China was even later to arrive at 7 days.

There is a fairly significant intersection between Sumer/Babylon and the shabat. It was a rest day for the gods on the 14th of the month. Each month started with the first day, now known as Sunday, so the 14th and 15th were always full moons. Enoch uses the Babylonian method, which is funny considering the fact that those who promote Enoch accuse those of us who rely instead on the Towrah of being Babylonian.

Every article I read was poorly written, poorly documented, often irrational, and highly opinionated. Some of this relates to the correlation between Gilgamesh and Noah, where the flood story in book 11 only dates back to the 7th century BCE, and yet we are told to believe that the 15th century BCE account in the Towrah was based upon the 7th century story of Gilgamesh. The four surviving Sumerian accounts which date to the 14th century BCE, do not include much of anything found in the standard 12 volume version published today, and in particular, exclude any reference to a flood. Therefore, it is inaccurate to suggest that the flood story recorded in the 7th century BCE was based upon the 14th century BCE account. Also, some versions have the flood narrated on a six day schedule, while others claim 7. I've read the 12 tablets known as the Standard Version, which dates to the 7th century BCE and is 70% complete, and it correlates less than .01% with the Towrah.

While the oldest citation we have from the Towrah dates to the 7th century BCE, beyond the affirmed science of creation and the flood, and of course the fulfilled prophecy, the internal depictions of places and people which have subsequently been shown valid by archaeology are too consistently accurate for it to have been written even as much as a couple of decades after the events it depicts - so it predates everything we have on a seven day week. It is not only the single source in antiquity to specifically establish a 6+1=7 day week, there would not be another written affirmation of a seven day week until after the Hebrew captivity in Babylon, when Babylon was under the influence of Daniel - and even then, it was the Persians, not Babylonians, who established a seven day week. It was later accepted by Greece as part of the Big Dipper having seven stars, or of the five visible planets plus the sun and moon. And the Romans got it from the Greeks, naming each day of the week after their gods, the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, and Saturn. http://adsabs.harvard.edu/full/1939PA.....47..175C

A more comprehensive review of what has been written and accepted over time is required to be emphatic, but what I read, based upon what we know, seems to affirm your conclusions.

Here are some of the articles I read.

History
While the seven-day cycle may have deep historical origins in the Ancient Near East, the "planetary theory" of horoscopy is a development ofBabylonian astrology roughly around 500 BC, with the oldest extant horoscope dated to just before 400 BC.[9]

The seven-day week being approximately a quarter of a lunation has been proposed (e.g. by Friedrich Delitzsch) as the implicit, astronomical origin of the seven-day week,[10] and indeed the Babylonian calendar used intercalary days to synchronize the last week of a month with the new moon.[11]



The seven-day week seems to have been adopted (independently) by the Persian Empire, in Judaism and in Hellenistic astrology, and (viaGreek transmission) in Gupta India and Tang China.[12] The Babylonian system was received by the Greeks in the 4th century BC (notably via Eudoxus of Cnidus). But the designation of the seven days of the week to the seven planets does not seem to have any Babylonian precedent[13] and is rather an original innovation of Hellenistic astrology, probably first conceived in the 2nd century BC.[9] It was widely known throughout the Roman Empire by the 1st century AD, and ultimately replaced the older Roman system of the nundinal cycle during the 4th century.

Ancient Near East
The earliest evidence of an astrological significance of a seven-day period is connected to Gudea, priest-king of Lagash in Sumer during theGutian dynasty, who built a seven-room temple, which he dedicated with a seven-day festival. In the flood story of the Assyro-Babylonian epic of Gilgamesh the storm lasts for seven days, the dove is sent out after seven days, and the Noah-like character of Utnapishtim leaves the ark seven days after it reaches firm ground.[14]

It seems likely that the Hebrew seven-day week is based on the Babylonian tradition, although going through certain adaptations. George Aaron Barton speculated that the seven-day creation account of Genesis is connected to the Babylonian creation epic, Enuma Elish, which is recorded on seven tablets. [15]

Babylonians[year needed] celebrated a holy day every seven days, starting from the new moon, then the first visible crescent of the Moon, but adjusted the number of days of the final "week" in each month so that months would continue to commence on the new moon.[citation needed]

Counting from the new moon, the Babylonians celebrated the 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th as "holy-days", also called "evil days" (meaning "unsuitable" for prohibited activities). On these days, officials were prohibited from various activities and common men were forbidden to "make a wish", and at least the 28th was known as a "rest-day".[16] On each of them, offerings were made to a different god and goddess.

In a frequently-quoted suggestion going back to the early 20th century[by whom?][17] the Hebrew Sabbath is compared to the Sumerian sa-bat"mid-rest", a term for the full moon. The Sumerian term has been reconstructed as rendered Sapattum or Sabattum in Babylonian, possibly present in the lost fifth tablet of the Enûma Eliš, tentatively reconstructed [according to whom?] "[Sa]bbath shalt thou then encounter, mid[month]ly".[16]

Achaemenid period
The Zoroastrian calendar follows the Babylonian in relating the seventh and other days of the month to Ahura Mazda.[18] The forerunner of all modern Zoroastrian calendars is the system used to reckon dates in the Persian Empire, adopted from the Babylonian calendar by the 4th century BC.

Frank C. Senn in his book Christian Liturgy: Catholic and Evangelical points to data suggesting evidence of an early continuous use of a seven-day week; referring to the Jews during the Babylonian Captivity in the 6th century BC,[19] after the destruction of the Temple of Solomon. While the seven-day week in Judaism is tied to Creation account in the Book of Genesis in the Hebrew Bible (where God creates the heavens and the earth in six days and rests on the seventh; Genesis 1:1–2:3, in the Book of Exodus, the fourth of the Ten Commandments is to rest on the seventh day, Shabbat, which can be seen as implying a socially instituted seven-day week), it is not clear whether the Genesis narrative predates the Babylonian Captivity of the Jews in the 6th century BC. At least since the Second Temple periodunder Persian rule, Judaism relied on the seven-day cycle of recurring Sabbaths[20]

Tablets[citation needed] from the Achaemenid period indicate that the lunation of 29 or 30 days basically contained three seven-day weeks, and a final week of eight or nine days inclusive, breaking the continuous seven-day cycle.[16] The Babylonians additionally celebrated the 19th as a special "evil day", the "day of anger", because it was roughly the 49th day of the (preceding) month, completing a "week of weeks", also with sacrifices and prohibitions.[16]

Difficulties with Friedrich Delitzsch's origin theory connecting Hebrew Shabbat with the Babylonian lunar cycle[21] include reconciling the differences between an unbroken week and a lunar week, and explaining the absence of texts naming the lunar week as Shabbat in any language.[22]

Hellenistic and Roman era
In Jewish sources by the time of the Septuagint, the term "Sabbath" (Greek Sabbaton) by synecdoche also came to refer to an entire seven-day week,[23] the interval between two weekly Sabbaths. Jesus's parable of the Pharisee and the Publican (Luke 18:12) describes the Pharisee as fasting "twice in the week" (Greek δὶς τοῦ σαββάτου dis tou sabbatou).

The ancient Romans traditionally used the eight-day nundinal cycle, but after the Julian calendar had come into effect in 45 BC, the seven-day week came into use. For a while, the week and the nundinal cycle coexisted, but by the time the week was officially adopted byConstantine in AD 321, the nundinal cycle had fallen out of use. The association of the days of the week with the Sun, the Moon and the five planets visible to the naked eye dates to the Roman era (2nd century). [24]

The continuous seven-day cycle of the days of the week can be traced back to the reign of Augustus; the first identifiable date cited complete with day of the week is 6 February 60, identified as a "Sunday" (as viii idus Februarius dies solis "eighth day before the ides of February, day of the Sun") in a Pompeiian graffito. According to the currently-used Julian calendar, 6 February 60 was, however, a Wednesday. This is explained by the existence of two conventions of naming days of the weeks based on the planetary hours system: 6 February was a "Sunday" based on the sunset naming convention, and a "Wednesday" based on the sunrise naming convention.[25]

Adoption in Asia
The earliest known reference in Chinese writings to a seven-day week is attributed to Fan Ning, who lived in the late 4th century in the Jin Dynasty, while diffusions from the Manichaeans are documented with the writings of the Chinese Buddhist monk Yi Jing and the Ceylonese or Central Asian Buddhist monk Bu Kong of the 7th century (Tang Dynasty).

The Chinese variant of the planetary system was soon brought to Japan by the Japanese monk Kobo Daishi. Surviving diaries of the Japanese statesman Fujiwara Michinaga show the seven-day system in use in Heian Japan as early as 1007. In Japan, the seven-day system was kept in use for astrological purposes until its promotion to a full-fledged Western-style calendrical basis during the Meiji era.

The seven-day week was known in India by the 6th century, referenced in the Pañcasiddhāntikā.[citation needed]. Shashi (2000) mentions theGarga Samhita, which he places in the 1st century BC or AD, as a possible earlier reference to a seven-day week in India. He concludes "the above references furnish a terminus ad quem (viz. 1st century) The terminus a quo cannot be stated with certainty".[26][27]

Christian Europe
Further information: Holy Week and Easter Week
The seven-day weekly cycle has remained unbroken in Europe for almost two millennia, despite changes to the Coptic, Julian, and Gregoriancalendars, demonstrated by the date of Easter Sunday having been traced back through numerous computistic tables to an Ethiopic copy of an early Alexandrian table beginning with the Easter of AD 311.[28]

"The Roman context of the spread of Christianity meant that Rome contributed a lot to the structure and calendar of the new faith."[29]

A tradition of divinations arranged for the days of the week on which certain feast days occur develops in the Early Medieval period. There are many later variants of this, including the German Bauern-Praktik and the versions of Erra Pater published in 16th to 17th century England, mocked in Samuel Butler's Hudibras. South and East Slavic versions are known as koliadniki (from koliada, a loan of Latincalendae), with Bulgarian copies dating from the 13th century, and Serbian versions from the 14th century.[30] Medieval Christian traditions associated with the lucky or unlucky nature of certain days of the week survived into the modern period. This concerns primarily Friday, associated with the crucifixion of Jesus. Sunday, sometimes personified as Saint Anastasia, was itself an object of worship in Russia, a practice denounced in a sermon extant in copies going back to the 14th century.[31]

Sunday, in the ecclesiastical numbering system also counted as the feria prima or the first day of the week; yet, at the same time, figures as the "eighth day", and has occasionally been so called in Christian liturgy. [32]

Justin Martyr wrote: "the first day after the Sabbath, remaining the first of all the days, is called, however, the eighth, according to the number of all the days of the cycle, and [yet] remains the first".[33]

A period of eight days, starting and ending on a Sunday, is called an octave, particularly in Roman Catholic liturgy. In German, the phrase in acht Tagen (literally "in eight days") means one week from today.

Maybe I'm just too simplistic and ignorant. But didn't Yahowah imply the 7-day week at the creation?

Richard,

Your point is valid. No reason to be embarrassed. Creation is the basis of the seven day week. My question, and I think Roy's, was to figure out when and why the world came to accept seven rather than six. So the answer to those questions had to be in the revelation of Yah's plan, that's all.

While He probably told Adam, and Adam may have told others, there are no written histories that far back to know if it was accepted. After the flood, some 5000 years ago, we have a fair amount of history that was written down, so I wanted to see what was known about the number of days in a week promoted by the earliest civilizations. And what I found was that it took the world a long time to accept 7, that it occurred at different times in different places, and that apart from the Towrah and Moseh, there is no other early documentation of a seven day week. Babylonia appears to have accepted it based upon Daniel. But Rome didn't accept a seven day week until Constantine in 350 CE.

This was all just a thought puzzle. We were humoring ourselves because while the reason behind the seven day week is obviously Yahowah's plan, there is no clear or irrefutable proof of how the Towrah's plan was conveyed early on outside of Yisra'el or accepted by mankind in this regard. And since 6 makes more sense than seven considering the moon phase and solar year, Roy was curious as to why man who normally rejects God, accepted this one aspect of His plan and accounting of time. My curiosity centered around Sumer, in that it was Abram's country, and they used 60 based math. The correlation between 6, human government, and Babel (Sumer became part of Babylonia), fascinates me.

Wasn't made known to man until later than the creation, you say. Ya know, Yada, sometimes I embarrass myself. Thanks.

As Yada said, the Torah is really giving us a ‘flash-back’ in the time line. At first when I realized that nearly everyone on earth uses a 7 day week I thought Yah had finally had a win. But on reflection I don’t think that is so. I think the answer is that ha Shatan needs a 7 day week himself.

His two major religions require it. Islam is supposed to be based on the Torah – hence a 7 day week. A 6 day week is just so yesterday nobody would believe Islam was based on the Torah if that were the case. Likewise with Pauline Christianity which claims the majority of the world’s adherents and it is, of course, supposedly also based on the Torah – or at least Sha’uwl’s version of the Torah.

The Hindus were conquered by two of the adherents of the ‘great’ religions – Islam first and then the Christian British Raj. Socialist secular humanism grew mainly from Christians and Jews so again they have the 7 day week, the first by a combination of ignorance and finding no reason to change the 7 day week to 6 days as they do not recognise the 7th day’s spiritual significance, the latter for obvious reasons. Asia has had signficant western influence more so in the last few centuries. However, apart from the mention of a satanic flood of Asians into Israel in the final days Asians do not figure greatly in the TPP as far as I’m aware.

Even without Asians we have accounted for the relevant parts of the world’s population – all controlled by ha Shatan.

Yada wrote:
Nice addition, Roy. You are correct. The NT and Q both claim to be based upon the Torah, so they had to accept, and then corrupt, its seven day accounting. Counterfeit requires similarity. Credibility is derived by corrupting the truth, with lies woven into an otherwise accurate tapestry. So the Shabat was replaced by the days on either side of it - day six and day one. Rather than 6+1=7 (man with God), Satan's corrupting counterfeit would have man separated from God - with the Shabat - the promise of seven - dividing them. Islam never gets to the Shabat. Christianity starts without it.

Late dad a minister.There was not a great deal of spiritual discussions at home although. I always felt something missing and/or wrong with Christianity and other beliefs. I'm starting my learning and I have been going to your youtube channel. I want to buy a the Torah and I hope you can suggest the best one to purchase. I feel that you are most sincere, there are many deceivers. Which is just about everyone! I want to share my revelation, just a few months ago. Talk about grand deception! many in my family were scientists and I had always been a huge sci-fi fan. I had hope then that "Star Trek" would be a reality one day. Until I find that, like the good book says, the earth is flat mathematically and quite literally. I'm not asking you to discuss this, many already do. Please tell me that you don't believe in the globe lie! Bless you. W

I am not Yada. I have a single video on my YouTube channel and it is one in which another brother is mimicking Christian prayer. If that is not the channel to which you're referring, then I am not the owner of the one you're referring to.

I not waste my time participating in discussions of such irrelevant nonsense as "the global lie" and whether or not the earth is flat.

My web site is "The Bless Yahowah Web Site," and on it I post my own writings as well as authorized copies of Yada's (Yada's) books. I also maintain archives of Yada's various Internet audio broadcasts there on my web site. If you would read the entire Home page, you will learn where I stand with regards to pretty much everything worth paying attention to. You will also find on my home page Yada's email address should you still wish to contact him.

W,

Answer 1: There isn't any worth buying. I've translated a substantial portion of the Towrah in my books, all of which are free. My first book, Yada Yah is available at BlessYahowah.com or www.YadaYah.com. It opens by translating the beginning of the Towrah through the Covenant. Please begin there with Volume One and read through Volume 7.

If you want more of the Towrah, I provide everything you need to translate and understand it yourself in my third book, which is free on the BlessYahowah.com site or http://anintroductiontogod.com/.

If you need verification that Christianity if false, my third book is free at www.QuestioningPaul.com or on the BlessYahowah.com website. It is irrefutable.

Answer 2: Yahowah never says the earth is flat. The earth is not flat. Yahowah's math is seven dimensional, and thus beyond anything anyone else has conceived.

The first five or six chapter of volume one of Yada Yah provide an accurate presentation of Yahowah's creation account. Read it and let me know what you think.

Thank you, I will continue. Concerning religion and politics, I have given them up long ago. I seek only truth, as close to it as I can understand and use. I would like the 7 dimensions explained further, I listened to you speak of them on your radio show. Your opinion is plausible to me. I did hear the word "planet", and moon landing mentioned. I have a hard time believing NASA or any government. 99% of what I hear, lies. I will continue reading and I am asking questions. W

W,

I cover the seven dimensional implications of Yahowah and His home in heaven throughout the three books and in countless radio programs. This realization ties everything we observe and that God is offering together, making it an important idea to consider.

I am glad you have walked away from religion and politics. This is the first of five steps to Yahowah. Man lies.

I also distrust the US government and for thousands of reasons, but not based upon "planet" or "moon landing." The Earth is a planet and Americans have gone to the moon. I do not know, nor do I care, what you have against either of these realities.

Ultimately, all that will matter for you is whether or not you invest the time to know, understand, and appropriately respond to Yahowah. While it is troubling, I do not think your fondness for a flat earth, if that is what you believe, will stand in your way. But if this is what you believe, I would encourage you to keep these views to yourself because they hinder your credibility.

T,

Great news! Congratulations.

You have to be circumcised to take advantage of the Passover and the Covenant as you know, but I'm convinced that once you finalize your acceptance of the Covenant's fifth and final condition, since you understand and have accepted Passover as the first step to Yahowah and the Doorway to life, you will be adopted the moment you are clipped. Just celebrate it this coming year, and every year thereafter, because you enjoy Yahowah's company and appreciate what He's done for you.

I was an evangelist too, and left the church and have never looked back.

Yahowah is the lifeline. Guys like me are just holding it to let you know where it is, while encouraging you to grasp hold.

I love Larry too. He's a good man.

I've attached some of my most recent chapters. I've got more if you get through these.

You can buy ITG, YY, and QP from http://claitors.com/yada.htm.

Yada,
Hi I'm John.
Truth is paramount to me.
1000% accuracy is an obsession.
There's a myriad of questions I'd like to ask you, but I want to be considerate of your time, therefore I will try not to ask too many questions in any one given exchange.

1. What version (if that's the right word) of the scriptures do you recommend?
I currently use the BYNV (Besorah Yahusha Natsarim Version) from Torah Institute.

2. What is the best resource you can recommend on showing someone the history of the name "Jesus," it's evolution and why it's a distortion etc.?


Yada wrote:
JL,

In the opening chapters of both Yada Yah and An Introduction to God I state that there are no accurate English translations. This remains true. So I will not recommend any.

Personally, I translate the Hebrew text out of the Masoretic Text and then correct it using the Dead Sea Scrolls, careful to undo the influence of the rabbinical diacritical marks. Those translations include the Hebrew words themselves so that readers can verify the translations using online lexicons. Then in An Introduction to God I provide readers with the tools they will need to translate Yahowah's Word for themselves. I also provide thousands of pages of examples.

100% accuracy isn't possible, much less 1000%. Not only is it impossible to perfectly translate one language into another, we don't have a 100% accurate text to begin with. I'd be thrilled if my translations were 90% accurate. We are all flawed and imperfect, and we all make mistakes, so that would be a remarkable achievement.

The name "Jesus" was first used around 1650. It appeared in the third edition of the KJV. The closest name to it is Gesus, the Savior of the Druid religion, where the Horned One is considered God.

God's one and only name is Yahowah. Yahowsha' serves to identify His set apart and diminished manifestation and to describe His purpose. It means Yahowah Saves. I report on the history of the name "Jesus" in An Introduction to God. That name did not evolve, however, but came into being almost immediately after the "J" was incorporated into English in the 17th century. As for the motivation for it, clearly it is a bias of Christians against Yahowah, His Towrah, Yahuwdym/Jews, and all things Hebrew.

All of my books, including Questioning Paul, Yada Yah, and An Introduction to God are available free on line under those names or at www.BlessYahowah.com.

If you are a Christian, start with www.QuestioningPaul.com. If you are an agnostic, begin with www.YadaYah.com. If you are sufficiently motivated to learn on your own, turn to www.AnIntroductionToGod.com. And once you have read them, I'll share my most recent Observations For Our Time.

If we are to still keep Torah wouldn't that mean we would still be required to make a blood sacrifice for our sins?

Thanks for providing any insight.


Yada wrote:
Your question begs many questions...

Why did you substitute "keep" for shamar - observe and shama' - listen?
Do you then interpret this replacement to mean "obey?" Much of the Towrah cannot be kept or obeyed, but all of the Towrah can be read and recited and thus known and understood.

I ask these questions because Yahowah answered your question, albeit not in a simple or direct manner. A great deal of observation and contemplation is required. The answer is not intended to be simple.

For example, we are not actually sacrificing anything with the Passover lamb. The nourishing parts are eaten and the inedible portions are burned. To call that a "sacrifice" is akin to calling any meal at a steakhouse a sacrifice.

Further, Yahowah asks us to pour the blood out on the ground. He doesn't want it and does not want us to consume it either. And this then leads to the question: who is actually making the sacrifice, when and why?

Do you understand the meaning and purpose of Pesach and Matsah? Do you attend these Invitations and celebrate the benefits? Do you understand how the five conditions and five benefits of the Covenant relate to and are achieve by the first four Mow'ed Miqra'ey?

How much of Yada Yah or An Introduction to God have you read?

The question you asked isn't actually valid. And when it is properly stated, the answer requires knowledge and understanding for which there is no shortcut. So my suggestion would be to read the books listed above, both of which are free online. They strive to present Yahowah's testimony on these subjects in a way that facilitates understanding.

Yada Yah is a much easier read than An Intro To God. I wrote it to prove that Yahowah exists and that He can be known. ITG was written for my son.

Whenever I try to tell them that we are not supposed to worship Jesus, God, christmas, easter and so on, they look at me with anger as if I am satan myself. Hahahaha. I used to ask myself this question - What is His Name?
Because in the scriptures it always says "Name", "name" like Do not call the name of the Lord in vain" which name?
One thing I want to ask is here in Africa and even in the scriptures people used to marry more than one women, is that right? I am just curious.

Clement,

I suspected as much. You are a remarkable man. Africa is awash in religions new and old and so many people seem susceptible to them, whether its is Animism, Tribal / Ancestral Spiritualism, Orthodox or Pentecostal Christianity, Islam, or now Messianics and Hebrew Roots.

You are to be admired for having recognized these as corrupt and invalid and then for having come to accept the truth about Yahowah. You are one in a million!

Yes, Yahowah's name is paramount. Until we come to know it, we do not know Him. And speaking of names, there is no "Jesus." Moreover, Yahowah does not want to be worshipped and Yahowsha' always pointed our attention to the Father, not Himself.

By the way, "the Lord" is Satan's title, not Yahowah's. So one of the things you are going to want to do over time is stop using it in reference to the one and only God. He wants to be your Covenant Father, not lord over you.

While the Covenant is based upon family, home, and marriage, and while there is only one Covenant, and while Yahowah will not tolerate a rival for His affection, He is remarkably tolerant of our less-than-ideal behavior. Dowd / David remains Yahowah's favorite person of all time, and he had more wives and concubines than he could count, and yet Yahowah called him "tsadaq - right, vindicated, and righteous."

As for me, one is enough. I would never want two, much less three or four.

It is the programmed reaction of the faithful to dispense with those who they cannot by calling them "satanic." The fallacy is ad hominem - against the man rather than the message.

I've attached the first ten chapters of my most recent book because they deal with the issues you are facing and the question you are asking. And as you know, Yada Yah, An Introduction to God, Questioning Paul, and Prophet of Doom are available to you free in their entirety online.

Thanks for all your hard work on your research, I am half way through Intro To God and love it

S,

Yahowsha' couldn't get them to use His name either. And Yahowsha' was unable to convince a single religious person that they should observe the Towrah just as He was doing. So why do you think you are going to prevail when He failed? I don't mean this critically, of course, but instead as a way of sharing that we should not expect success in this regard. It's not your fault, either. No matter how comprehensive or irrefutable your argument, it will fall on deaf ears and blind eyes.

Until and unless your Christian friends start questioning the absurdity of their religion and distance themselves from it, Yahowah, Himself, cannot reason with them. For example, the corruption of Yahowsha' to "Jesus" is so obvious and errant, so well documented, that anyone who actively promotes "Jesus" as correct and Yahowsha' as wrong is way too ignorant and irrational to help.

Don't waste your time. Continue to spend it as you are doing: getting to know Yahowah better each day.

I appreciate your note, S.

Thank you,

Thank you so much for the articles. When I read your articles most of my questions are always answered. The gaps are getting filled day by day. My other question is why do you use "God" because I understand it's satanic as well?
May YAH continue unveiling the truth to you and those who believe and are seeking the truth.

Clement,

The aversion to "God" is one of many rabbinic lies. It's just a word. It's not Yahowah's name. Even Yahowah used it, because it was the name of His prophet during Dowd's / David's life - Gad. And those who insist on 'el don't acknowledge that 'El was the name of the chief pagan deity of the Canaanites. I answer this question in An Introduction to God and in Yada Yah, proving the point.

At the initiation of the process of shedding man's religious lies while gradually embracing the truth, we are all emotional. You and I, and indeed most of us, are similar in this regard.

As for those still lost, at first I was perplexed as to why those I trusted deliberately deceived me. Then as I shared Yahowah's Word with them and they mocked it, I became disappointed and then angry. I originally had sympathy for the deceived because I was once counted among them. But after having dealt with them for 15 years, I've come to see them as ignorant, irrational, immoral, and un-salvageable.

Your willingness to let go of the lies and embrace the truth makes you one in a million, Clement. And while we are witnessing a wonderful acceleration in Covenant acceptance worldwide, we are still just thousands among billions. And that is never going to change. The truth, while wonderful, will never be popular.

Enjoy your new life with Yahowah and share what you are coming to know and experience with those who are receptive.

JG,

I haven't translated much of Yah's conversations with Solomon because, unlike his father, I don't find Solomon insightful or appealing. But in 2 Chronicles 7:12 "prayer" was derived from tapilah and in 7:14 it was from palal.

These are the two Hebrew words most often rendered prayer, and they share a common root. Tapilah is a "manner of speaking which can include a request or petition." A "petition" is a "formal declaration of rights and liberties," which in the context of Yah's relationship with Yisra'el would reflect the people speaking to God to accept the Covenant.

While tapilah is based upon palah, the same Hebrew word, at least prior to the Masorete vocalizations, tiplah is "repulsive and wrong." So much of Hebrew has a dark and light side. In this case, what we request of Yah matters.

Palal means "to assess, judge, and reason," which is to determine what is right and wrong, truthful or deceitful." It can be translated "to mediate justly and to thoughtfully intervene." When it is used between Yah and His people, a thoughtful individual after exercising good judgment will request Yah's just means of intervention to make the wrong right. Palal and its cognates all speak of exercising good judgment to render a reasonable assessment of the evidence.



Here is a Dowd conversation in which the same Hebrew word was used...

“Your name (wa shem – Your reputation and renown) will endure, verified and true (‘aman – confirmed and enduring, reliable and dependable, established and lasting), and also (wa), it will be revered as great (gadal – honored and promoted) throughout eternity (‘ad ‘owlam – forevermore, for all time) by saying (la ‘amar – on account of affirming), ‘Yahowah (efei) of the spiritual implements (tsaba’ – of the divisions of heavenly envoys and vast array of messengers) is the God (‘elohym) of Yisra’el (Yisra’el – individuals who engage and endure with God), a God (‘elohym) for Yisra’el (Yisra’el).’ And (wa) the family of Dowd (beyth Dowd), Your implement (‘ebed – Your associate, coworker, servant, and assistant), will be established and sustained (kuwn – will be prepared, steadfast, ready, and supportive) by Your presence (la paneh ‘atah – before and facing You).” (Dabry ha Yowmym / Words of the Time / 1 Chronicles 17:24)
While this is not true at the moment, in that Ha Shem is the g-d of Israel and of Judaism, it will ring true again seventeen years from now. And it will remain so for all time thereafter.
“Because indeed (ky), You (‘atah), my God (‘elowah), have revealed and made known by opening the ears (galah ‘eth ‘ozen – have audibly and vocally communicated so as to clearly hear) of Your partner (‘ebed – associate and coworker, implement and servant) to build a home for him (la banah la huw’ – to construct a home and procreate a family for him to approach). Therefore, and for this reason (‘alken), Your implement (‘ebed – Your servant and coworker) can continue to investigate, approach by anticipating intervention, and render thoughtful decisions (la palal – can come near and ask questions, exercise good judgment, request mediation and intercession, speaking out regarding (hitpael infinitive – Dowd is acting on his own initiative to deliver all of the verb’s implications, becoming the living embodiment of palal)) about coming into Your presence (la paneh ‘atah – arriving face to face).” (Dabry ha Yowmym / Words of the Time / 1 Chronicles 17:25)
Palal is almost always rendered as “pray” in bibles published by religious institutions, but that is not what it means. It actually speaks of “exercising good judgment by making comparisons, thereby discriminating fact from fiction after a thorough investigation.” It is “to decide by cutting through the evidence that is observed so as to discern what is trustworthy.” Palal is not only a “thinking” verb, it addresses the idea of “asking questions, receiving answers, then requesting intervention.” As a result of what is understood, to palal is “to speak favorably, intelligently, knowledgably, and persuasively about the expected reconciliation of a relationship, making declarations which advocate and promote a particular and anticipated consequence based upon the circumstance.”
Dowd had come to realize that his bad behavior was not being held against him, that Yahowah had forgiven him, and more importantly, that God was devoted to honoring the great contributions he had made to help all humankind understand the Towrah and its Covenant. His statement reflects the overwhelming sense of confidence he had in the liberty we all experience as children of the Covenant. It conveys our overwhelming desire to share what we have come to know. Palal is the catalyst, the means to excite our passion to speak out in favor of Yahowah. Nothing is more satisfying than encouraging those whose eyes, ears, and minds are open to exercise good judgment in favor of accepting the conditions established to become part of God’s family. Our response is not only active, informed, thoughtful, and rational, it is one of advocacy, using sound arguments to persuade others into accepting the truth based upon the insights that have been derived from being observant.
As it is with Dowd, my relationship with Yahowah is palal – I investigate His Word and learn by exercising good judgment by making reasonable connections, thereby forming a proper perspective from which to know and approach Yah. As a result, I’m passionate and make every attempt to be persuasive, encouraging others to take advantage of the greatest offer ever made.
“So (wa) now (‘atah), Yahowah (efei), You, as God (‘atah huw’ ha ‘elohym), have spoken (dabar – declared and promised, communicating) about Your coworker (‘al ‘ebed ‘atah – concerning Your associate, partner, and implement) regarding these good and generous, pleasing and joyful things (ha towb ha zo’th – these valuable, moral, festive, beautiful, productive, favorable, and enjoyable things).” (Dabry ha Yowmym / Words of the Time / 1 Chronicles 17:26)

How would you translate the Hebrew word below?

JM,

I am glad that you were listening but I am wondering why you looked this up or sent it to me - especially without comment. Were you seeking some justification for obedience? Was this a legacy of Pauline Christianity's ironic and hypocritical requirement for obedience in their mythical realm of grace? I realize that it is sometimes hard to let go of the things that once guided our lives and made us comfortable.

But did you check to see if this word, written l-ts-y-y-t using English lettering, was among those used in the Towrah, Prophets, or Psalms? Did you look at any of the scores of lexicon references following the Google entry and notice that all of them referred to shama'?

The fact is, there are only two Hebrew words found in the TP&P which begin with L TS and they are "latsown - to brag while scorning" and "latsats - to speak arrogantly and scornfully." Therefore, l-ts-y-y-t isn't in Yahowah's vocabulary. It is part of man's vocabulary. And there is a reason for that, which was my point. Yahowah does not have laws and He does not seek obedience. Man uses one to require the other.

As for shama', it is one of Yah's favorite verbs. It however means "listen," not obey. But the religious deceivers promoting Pauline Christianity needed to justify Paul's ruthless attack on the Towrah, so they misrepresented Towrah as Law rather than Teaching and shama' as Obey rather than listen. Had they not done so, even a fool would readily have recognized that Paul's attack on the Torah was ignorant and irrational. Christianity literally requires this deceitful corruption to beguile the foolish into believing that the mean god of the old testament was a cosmic kill joy with a long list of arcane laws that had to be obeyed or you were condemned to hell. By comparison to this misrepresentation, their religion looked good - that is until you actually take the time to look.

I don't claim to have any interest or proficiency in modern secular or religious Hebrew. Man's vocabulary isn't useful. My comments are limited to what Yahowah revealed - and thus to His words. That is why I said that there is no Hebrew word for obey.

Stripped of their Masoretic diacritical markings, there are 7,000 different words (8700 with their differentiating vocalizations) among the 6000 total words found in the Towrah, Naby' wa Mizmowr. There is no word even remotely akin to "obey" among them. There is a reason for that.

Similarly, there is no word whose original and primary definition meant prayer, religion, holy, or bible, as they are interpreted today.

Hi Yada,
I was a bit confused by this passage in OT10: If I am right, and this testimony seems to suggest that I am, then their first meeting was similar to my own. I heard God but did not see Him. Yahowah did not introduce Himself by name, but I knew who was speaking to me, as was the case with ‘Abram. I understand from this that you actually heard Yah’s voice. If so, that is absolutely great but I suspect you may have ‘heard’ Him through the Torah. Is that the case?

Yada wrote:
When He first approached me some 15 years ago, I did not know His name and my understanding of the Towrah was from the perspective of a once devout but now wavering and questioning Christian. So I heard a voice. At the time, the only reference to Yah's Word was to the copy of Psalm 91 that was in my pocket. I did not start studying the Towrah until a year or so after the introduction.

Thanks Yada,
I’ve often wondered why more of the family don’t have a more direct communication with Yah such as we find in the TPP, particularly at this important time of the end. I would love to hear Him so I think you are very lucky. On the other hand I believe He has directed me to important fields of endeavour so that I could share what I found with other family members. I’ll just have to be content with that until the harvest.
You have been critical to the advancement of so many family members. So many have come to know Yah through your logical and reasoned dissection of His word that I’m sure Yah recognised you as immensely important even before you commenced your labour of love.
I know your are sensitive to praise but the truth is the truth and you should wear your position in Yah’s love with pride. You will I’m sure feature greatly in heaven.

Yada wrote:
Roy,

I am certain that Yahowah speaks to everyone who is willing to listen to Him. When we open His Towrah, Naby', wa Mizmowr and start studying His words we hear Him speaking to us, teaching us, guiding us, inspiring us, and empowering us - effectively leading us to Him. The more we study, the more we understand - especially if we approach His testimony from the right perspective, think logically, and seek to make connections.

The only difference between me and you is that I've been at it a little longer and I probably spend a little more time at it. And while your mind brilliantly and rationally races to answer a wide spectrum of questions, I tend to focus on those which pertain to knowing Yah and engaging in a relationship with Him. Your tools are found in science. Mine are found in lexicons. Yah communicates through both.

Truthfully, Roy, I'm a bit like an old record. I then to screech and produce copious amounts of static as I go round and round in the same song with the same words. It's a big, beautiful song, to be sure, one whose refrain extends beyond what I could hope to learn in a lifetime. And it's an uplifting and inspiring song whose lyrics lead to the Composer. So since it is the most interesting song in the universe, I'm so enamored with it, I seldom get very far away from that melody. I may be an centimeter wide and a meter deep.

What's amazing to me is that I've spent 15 years devoted to these lyrics and I am always learning something new - even today as I translate Shemowth 12. The more I read, the more carefully I listen, the more I come to appreciate the message. I just love the way everything fits together and tells the same story. It is masterfully written.

What's also amazing is how few of us there are who genuinely love these words. As revealing and empowering as they are, you'd think we'd be in the vast majority rather than a tiny minority. After all, the Author is God. So the biggest surprise of all is why aren't there millions of me and you? Yah's testimony isn't hidden. It isn't hard to understand. And there is no question whatsoever that the Creator authored these texts. And by comparison, man's religious and political doctrines are filled with errors and contradictions.

While I may be reading too much into these stories, I like to think that I am a blend of people. I'm a little like Dowd, a flawed guy who is passionate and strives to be rational. I'm a little like Moseh in that I'm an unqualified linguist. I'm a little like Abraham, in that at times I'm slow to discard myths in favor of the truth. And I suspect I've got a little of Noach in me, in that I'm willing to act upon Yah's instructions and cannot wait to jump aboard His ship and set sail with Him.

I suspect that there is some of each of these fellows in each of us, which is why they were chosen and why they were presented, warts and all. While there is an infinite delta between ordinary humans and the Covenant family, in the family we are all the same apart from our personalities.

Lucky for me, and probably for a lot of us, Yah likes rascals, people who know their limitations and yet don't let them get in the way. Yah seems to enjoy engaging with those who like to work and who are not afraid to try. He understands that we make mistakes. He is only disappointed when we are unwilling to engage.

But I cannot see myself as special in any way. In Yah's home, I'm just going to be one of the guys, maybe a little more curious, a little more impulsive, a little more willing to give new things a try. But that's it. I'll be delighted to sit in the back of the room and be the last in line. Just being in the same place with you, our brothers and sisters, and with Yah will be extraordinary - more than enough for eternity.

As for your initial thought, what would Yahowah tell us now that would be any different than what He has already said? Beyond inspiring us to understand what He is offering and wants in return, what else is important? Sure, there are some questions about dimensions and creation that I'd love to have answered, but they are just curiosities. All of the important questions have been answered and my curiosities will be resolved in due time. Moreover, Yahowah has provided an overwhelmingly thorough accounting of the last days. We know what is going to happen and when it is going to occur. So He has told us everything we need to know, and more.

One of the great things about being reliable and unchanging is that you only have to present your plan once. There is one Covenant and one Towrah for all of us.

On your last thought, if by simply sharing what I'm learning, others have come to learn, then we are all beneficiaries of His Word. It is the nature of Yah and the purpose of His family. While reading a book to one's family inside of one's home is an enjoyable undertaking, if the book benefits all of those who listen, then it's the Author, not reader, who deserves the credit.

Hello again,

One more question please Yada. The big thing I am hearing among Christians is that 2028 is the next Yowbel year. I think they are going by Rabbinical information via Jonathan Cahn who actually preceded Haggee on the dreadful bloodmoons! He talked alot about the sabbatical year of rest and aligned events to 7 year cycles. So the question is what point of reference are you using to time this next yowbel?

CR


Yada wrote:
Hell no to 2028.

They were completely, totally, and utterly wrong on the blood moons, so why would anyone trust either of them now? If you are sane, you will reject whatever they have to say. I devoted many hours of radio in advance of the blood moons refuting all of their claims. They are religious idiots.

It is absolutely certain that Yahowsha' fulfilled the first four Miqra'ey in year 4000 Yah, 33 CE on the Roman Catholic Imperial Rome calendar - just as was predicted by Dany'el. So I ask you, what date is derived from multiplying 40 Yowbel and adding it to 33 CE?

Or do you suppose that Yahowah got it wrong and missed the Yowbel year of 4000 Yah by 5 years and fulfilled the first four Miqra'ey early? And if He blew his timing there, why would anyone think He'd get it right this time through.

The idiots who say such things don't know what the Yowbel represent or why the Miqra'ey were fulfilled during them. Hell, they don't even know what the Miqra'ey represent. They are also clueless to Yah's 6+1=7 plan.

Yahowah will return on Yowm Kippurym in year 6000 Yah. It begins at 6.22 PM in Yaruwshalaim at sundown on October 2, 2033 on the Roman Pagan Calendar. 2028 will be two years into the 7 year Tribulation. I'm sure Hagee will be writing books about it.

I won't be here.

Yada

By the way, if Yahowah does not return on this day, please tell the world that I'm an idiot.

There are calendars on the internet that let you project backwards and forwards to extended periods of time just by putting in dates. And knowing Yahowsha went to the upright pole on a Friday (Passover) around 3pm according to Mattanyah, we can put in the years and see what those dates are from what the shyster Cahn has said, to what is the actual date (truth.)

Wednesday, April 28, CE
Monday, April 18, 29 CE
Friday, April 7, 30 CE
Tuesday, March 27, 31 CE
Monday, April 14, 32 CE
Friday, April 3, 33 CE
Wednesday, March 24, 34 CE
Tuesday, April 12, 35 CE
Saturday, March 31, 36 CE

As we look at what the vipers did in Yahowcanon 18: 28,29 we know they were there at the beginning of Passover when they brought Yahowsha before Pilate.

So we can determine pretty quickly Kahn is a deceiver much like Haggee is..Cahn is a con and getting rich by duping so many.
33 CE times 40 Yowbel equals 2033.

Yada wrote:
Yep, based upon the eyewitnesses the only day of the week that works is Friday, eliminating 28 CE and all but 30 CE.

But then there is the NASA site which presents moon phases back to 1 CE. The only one of these dates which also coincides with Passover is Friday, April 3, 33CE. And it just so happens to be exactly 1000 years from Dowd/Solomon laying the cornerstone of Yah's House, 2000 years from the affirmation of the Covenant on Mowryah with Abraham, 3000 years after the flood, and 4000 years after the expulsion from the Garden. And, oh yes, Matsah fell on a Shabat in 4000 Yah and Sukah will occur on a blood moon Shabat in 6000 Yah - 2033.

If the Cahns and Hagees knew Yah, they'd know better. It isn't difficult.

I have no interest in "faith" and have no faith, so I am unable to answer any question regarding my faith. That reality is clearly stated in the prologue of each of the books presented on the Yada Yah site. And if I had a faith, my beliefs would be irrelevant and thus of no assistance to you.

I translate and explain Yahowah's testimony. And I apply what He has to say to our world, past, present, and future. My entire focus is on what can be known and understood. And thus faith would be a liability.

This fellow "E" came to a website that is obviously presenting Yah's word, which is the opposite of faith, and yet without hesitation proceeded to ask about faith. Really, all this idiot wanted was the "brief" cliffs notes version of Yadas faith so that he/she could use their "brief" boiler plate religious mumbo jumbo sound bytes. Most people like "E" are incapable of waking up. They will continue to sleep walk through life until death, wasting their one opportunity to actually understand instead of believe.

Hi

I have read your book Introduction to God.

There are 2 points I feel uncomfortable with :

First
Souls, you say there are only 3 ways a soul can go, 1 to heaven, 2 to hell and 3 just cease but u the book of Enoch, he talks about souls on the death of a person being taken to a mountain with 4 chambers, where they reside until the coming. Enoch also provides signs and time lines to the end times.
This.might be a book to translate correctly as well. Enoch was also a prophet and taken I to heaven without dying on earth and Enoch was told to instruct his children as to the teachings before being taken I to heaven.

Second
Adultery is derived from the Latin word adulterare - which means to mix with baser ingredients.
In the word it is written about a race of people born with no conscience /soul. They have the ability to learn, love and have compassion etc. It is said that one can have set with them and even have children but those children will never sit in the community of YHWH.
If all the other statements were made pertaining to the covenant, why not this one? Could it not perhaps mean that we are not to adulterate the word and the covenant. Not. Mix in our own special mix to make things more convenient?
Adultery meaning was changed to mean sleeping around to suit Christianity and this is a duplication of coveting in essence, I don't think YHWH would repeat himself like that.
Mixing with baser ingredients can also be the mixing of races to warn Yisrael to remain pure, often mixed marriages bring about the change in beliefs and worship and gods, so this may be a warning not to take a wife or husband is not on the same path so as not to be mislead? Not to mix the covenant with other beliefs and practices? Not to mix with people who may cause to mix the covenant with other beliefs and practices?

I agree that the incorrect translations are a major concern but now where do I find a correctly translated Dabar to read write and contemplate for the steps to the covenant.

Where do I find the correct dates for the feasts every year.

Where do I find a calendar that I can download and pin up to ensure I keep the feasts and now that I understand what pesach is about I want to keep it and really need to keep it. I want to be healed and cleansed by YHWH.

I'm sorry, V, but the moment your referenced Enoch as if that rubbish was from Yahowah you lost me. So, if you have a question and can avoid frauds like the book of Enoch I'll do my best to answer them. The book falsely attributed to Enoch is as poorly written and as false as the Qur'an. It is so stupid it hurts to even think about it.

However, the proof of three destinations is so overwhelming and prolific in Yah's Word, and so essential for Him to be fair and just, you may want to read www.YadaYah.com to resolve this issue in your mind.

Lastly, the derivation of English words seldom helps us understand Yah's words. And when Yahowah references "adultery" He is not talking about sex, husbands, or wives. Yah does not want us to engage in affairs with false gods, and therefore, religions.

Hi

Thank you for your response.

I have looked into the word adultery. It is derivative of the Latin word adulatare. Therefore it is the mixing of the baser ingredients. I cannot think that whilst you have listed all other of the so called 10 commandments that this one is out our tune with what Yahohwa expects from us, it does not make sense.
Look at how you have laid out everything else except for this statement.
Is it perhaps that you aren't purebred that you ignored this and flowered over it?
If you are going to do this translation thing, do it right and do it all the way even if if it excludes you (so to speak) but do it right you you are as false as all those just like Paul. Then we can call you a new Paul?
It is either right or wrong!!!!!!

Dearest V,

Sweetheart with the endearing prose who loves the book of Enoch as if it were sane and who seems to believe that Yahowah's Word can be translated more effectively by dissecting Latin rather than Hebrew, why don't you create a more accurate translation of the Ten Statements and then the Towrah? Then write a commentary on what you have learned by analyzing the Hebrew. Because it is rude, not to mention ignorant, to cast aspersions without basis.

Try looking up one of the many Hebrew words for adultery and then compare that to what I wrote. If your research into the Hebrew differs, explain why, and then explain why that makes a difference relative to our understanding. But don't bring up Latin again. It isn't even remotely pertinent.

What you have written "does not make sense." I translated all Ten Statements and laid out commentary based upon those translations, so your criticism is invalid.

And what does "purebred" have to do with anything? Are you a racist too? Moreover, who is Yahohwa? It does not make sense based upon the spelling He has provided. It is YHWH not YHHWA

If I'm the new Paul, then I owe Paul an apology - so does Yahowah.

I don't know you apart from your two letters, but based upon them you ought not be stating your opinion to anyone. Cut it out!!!!!!!!!!!

Yada

This is my translation and commentary on the Statement you claim that I ignored and failed to lay out...

This next Instruction, the Fourth of Seven, also compels us to consider its deeper spiritual insights. Like the previous Instruction, it was scribed in the qal stem and imperfect conjunction. Yahowah is establishing a pattern – one which reveals that our prior indiscretions, if not ongoing, no longer plague our relationship with our Heavenly Father. This explains how Dowd could slip up from time to time and still have God put it behind them and move on. It is, at least for those of us with a checkered past, a tremendous relief.

It is amazing how big a difference something as simple as a conjugation can make as we assess our standing with God. He is far from the disciplinarian that He is cast as being in Paul’s letters. He isn’t asking nor expecting us to be perfect but, instead, knows that we are imperfect. So He’s focusing on our attitude, encouraging us to act better, to think more clearly, to respond more appropriately to get in the habit of becoming more like Him.

“You should not continue to commit adultery (lo’ na’ap – you should not make a habit of being unfaithful nor consistently have relations with more than one marriage partner).” (Shemowth / Names / Exodus 20:14)

“Na’ap – adultery” differs from “zana – illicit heterosexual relations” only in that the former speaks of violating the “beryth – covenant marriage vow” upon which the whole of Scripture is based. The Covenant, therefore, continues to reign supreme throughout these Instructions. It remains the prime directive. It is the means to form a familial relationship with God and thus the way to life eternal. That is what each of these instructions have consistently underscored with their focus on our Heavenly Father and Spiritual Mother and with the admonitions that we should neither take the life of another nor be unfaithful.

This is in fact the fourth familial reference Yahowah has made. He has spoken of His concern that fathers fail to protect their children, of sons and daughters observing the Shabat, of children considering the full significance of our Heavenly Father and Spiritual Mother so that we might live forever in the place God has provided for us and, now, of being faithful in marriage. These references underscore our Heavenly Father’s affinity for His beryth Covenant – a word which is based upon beyth, meaning “family, home, and household.” Yahowah’s “beryth – Covenant” is therefore accurately defined as a “family-oriented relationship based upon a monogamous marriage vow and protective home environment where God’s children live.”

God’s lone objective in creating the universe was to enjoy a loving family. As proof, in the end, when the existing universe is destroyed, only the children of His Covenant will survive.

The reason this Instruction is important is because by committing adultery we shatter symbols dear to Yahowah’s heart: husbands and wives becoming fathers and mothers in faithful monogamous relationships akin to a marriage vow to conceive loving families, providing for their children in protective homes, nourishing them.

Once again, by using the qal stem and imperfect conjunction, God is not only telling us not to associate with infidelity but, also, is encouraging us to refrain from doing anything which would cause others to be unfaithful. To this the imperfect adds an enduring perspective. There is an ongoing and unfolding consequence of adultery that Yahowah wants us to avoid because it is lethal to building a loving family. So, in the imperfect, then, lo’ na’ap says that we “should not continue to be unfaithful.”

Again, before we press on, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the fact it was adultery, not homosexuality, that was addressed here. That is not to say that God is supportive of homosexual behavior; He isn’t. But it is to say that adultery is of far greater concern to Him. Christians, encapsulated in Pauline Doctrine, are prone to view homosexuality more harshly than adultery and, therefore, lash out at homosexuals while ignoring their own behavior. In so doing, they miss the message God is conveying.

I've been listening to a ton of your content. I want to know more about becoming a covenant believer. Albeit I've listened to the steps on by which this is achieved, I still have many questions. What would it take to do a 101 with me over the phone. It would have to be layman, as I'm a baby in my understanding. Christianity has indoctrinated me with a lot of fodder, so I'm a little - a lot slow at getting this :)

J,

Everything I know and understand regarding the Covenant is based upon Yahowah's testimony and is presented free for your consideration at www.YadaYah.com, www.AnIntroductionToGod.com, www.QuestioningPaul.com, and at www.BlessYahowah.com and www.YahowahBeryth.com. On the last two sites you will also find the audio from Shattering Myths and Yada Yah Radio which address the contents of these books. Also, on both of these sights you will find my most recent book: Observations for Our Time. It also addresses Covenant membership.

You will be better served if you read them than anything I could add in summary via the phone.

We are all infants compared to Yah. We are all learning. We were all indoctrinated at one time or another with religious and political lies. And we are all show at getting this. But there are no shortcuts. The Towrah provides a foundation that must be viewed and understood as a collective whole.

יְהֹושֻׁעַ . You speak the name of the Most High well. How do you pronounce the name of the Priest in Zechariah 3:8 or 3:9. Please, how do you, a man who searches and looks for truth, speak this name and the transliteration of greek Ἰησοῦ name to Hebrew, which would be (waw)יהשע , what I believe is YahhShIWaw. Maybe you can respond to this, please. I have attempted to send you a question.

J,

YHWShA isn't the name of the "Most High," so I do not speak of it as such. That isn't what Zechariah 3:8 claims. Y-H-W-Sh-A, transliterated Yahowsha' in English, is the name of the one who succeeded Moseh, and is used to describe Yahowah's purpose in Zechariah 2 and 3. It means Yahowah Saves. As a name, Yahowsha' is presented 222 times in the Towrah, Naby', wa Mizmowr. Yahowah interjected His name 7000 times in His Word.

The Most High has only one name, YHWH, pronounced Yahowah. His name, like the name He selected to convey His purpose and identity through Yahowsha' is Hebrew so the Greek transliteration Iesou is completely irrelevant. Proving this, neither the Septuagint nor any of the more than 70 manuscripts of the Christian New Testament dating prior to the end of the fourth-century CE present the name in Greek. Placeholders are used throughout. Moreover, the ou ending changes the Hebrew name to comply with Greek rules of grammar and to make it masculine. Yahowsha' was not Greek, did not have a Greek name, and did not speak Greek.

Whoever led you to believe that YHWShA is the Most High's name or that it is pronounced YahhShIWaw should be rejected for having done so. They are wrong on both accounts.

The answer to the question you asked was answered throughout each of the books presented on the site you used to contact me. If you had read them, you would not have asked it.

Hello, yada. Forgive me if I seem ignorant in this. I am about to begin a biblical Hebrew reading course to learn Hebrew so that I can read the scripture more clearly. At this point I can't say that I know anything for certain. I have been a christian for the past two or three years, and of course I'm quite distraught to learn just how far I've been led astray. I have even been a stumbling block to those around me, through my misunderstanding. The reading course begins in February and lasts about 7 months, I think. I'm concerned, though, if there will be enough time to come to know Yah for who He really is. I'm told we have less than a couple decades before it's all over. And to learn the invalidity of the "death on the cross" narrative, I'm scared to think this may mean that I may be irredeemable. But my concern is more for the people around me. Every single person I've met in my life is either Mormon, or totally secular. Is there time for me to come to know Him, and what can I do for them until then, if anything? I do not know the Torah yet, my job is graveyards sunday night through thursday night, and I'm so confused on the truth about shabbat . I know it's not sunday, I've heard saturday, but wouldn't it be based on a biblical calendar?
Forgive me, for coming to you with all this. I suppose the only thing I can do is wait to learn Hebrew and find out for myself. I'm just so confused.

JJ,

You do not need a course to read Hebrew. All you need to do is use one of the many free Hebrew - English Interlinears available online. Then use one of the many free sites which provide Hebrew dictionaries. By combining these tools anyone can know what God revealed. It just takes time. And while we are less than 20 years away from Yahowah's return, that's more than enough time to come to know Him.

I wrote www.AnIntroductionToGod.com to teach people like you how to translate Yahowah's Word for themselves. Every tool and explanation is provided for you and then they are deployed translating Yahowah's statements regarding things He most wants us to understand.

If you primary aim is to know Yahowah, then read www.YadaYah.com first. If you want absolute proof that Christianity is false, as is the notion of god dying, read www.QuestioningPaul.com. If you are trying to become proficient in translating, read www.AnIntroductionToGod.com as mentioned previously. And if you still have questions, read Observations from either www.BlessYahowah.com or YahowahBeryth.com.

Forget about saving anyone else. Come to know Yahowah first. Accept His offer. Then prepare. Once you are ready, share what you have learned with open minded secular friends. Don't bother with the Mormons. They are too lost, too irrational, too indoctrinated to help.

Thank you for your speedy reply. I'm about halfway through the preface to an Introduction to God. I do appreciate the referral to the interlinears, and I will be utilizing them, as well as your resources. However I still plan to study Hebrew, if only out of love for His language.

I must say, the pain of being separated from friends and family has been the most feared obstacle, though I trust Yahowah to see me through. It seems to be fear of rejection by loved ones, which is of course irrelevant if God's will is the desire, but I suppose I fear punishment for forsaking anybody, for letting people go their own way and be lost. The story of the watchman on the wall comes to mind. But as you've said, free will can't be infringed, and all I can do is share what I might learn to anyone willing to listen, and in the end point them to Towrah.

As for Shabbat, Ive seen various claims of when it should be observed. Is there a scripturally sound calendar out there that you might know of that can be used to pinpoint the proper dates for Shabbat and the holy days? I so badly want to be aligned with Yahowah in all these things, and I don't know where to begin.

Thanks again,

J

JJ,

Yahowah / Yahowsha' is vastly more capable than you or I. He did not try to "save" everyone who was lost. And most who have listened to Him have rejected Him. So why would you think that you would have to perform better to avoid punishment?

Yahowah does not judge or punish His children. Dowd / David did a lot or bad stuff and yet Yahowah declared him "tsadaq - right / righteous."

If you choose to reject religion and accept the Covenant, you will find that all of your religious "friends" will reject you. If your family is religious, they will reject you as well. But Yahowah's acceptance is far more enjoyable and beneficial. It is the basis and purpose of the Covenant.

The shabat is the seventh day. On the Roman calendar in use today, it occurs beginning Friday at sunset and continues through sundown on Saturday. Do not be fooled by either the lunar shabat promoters or those who rely on the fraudulent book of Enoch. Similarly, if you read the Invitations Volume of Yada Yah you will not only come to know Yahowah's calendar, but will also know the timing of the seven Miqra'ey.

About two years ago I started to take Christianity seriously. I thought I got saved by my trust in Christ. But as I studied the bible and read many commentaries I stared to become hopelessly confused. I consider myself a pretty rational guy but the more I sought understanding from the bible the more cast down I became. It got to the point where I just felt like I was driving myself insane trying to understand things about God. In the midst of my insanity I stumbled across one of the shattering myths youtube videos about the corruption of KJV. After watching many of the shattering myth videos and reading from the yadayah website I have without a doubt come to the conclusion that christianity is false. I want to know Yahowah! I have so many questions. My only fear is that I’m not intellectually capable of understanding the Torah. I am the worst at grammar, but I’ll spend every moment of my life that I can learning hebrew if thats what it takes. I guess my main question is, what tools do I need to get to understand Yahowah? Like what lexicons? Where do I get the reliable hebrew text of the Torah? I have many more questions I'll send your way soon.


Thank you so much

BJ,

Since I was once where you are, I understand how seductive Christianity can be, right up to the point that you begin to study it openly and consider it rationally. Then it all falls apart - every jot and tittle.

I was once an evangelist, so I was guilty of this, but nonetheless it's telling that Christians are indoctrinated into believe that "getting saved" comes first. Saved to what, by whom, for what reason? Why would a rational deity want to save someone he does not know, someone who does not know him either, someone who does not listen or respond to what he has to say? It would be like you and me saving random people, no matter what they were like from a variety of places - and then deciding to ignore others. Worse, Christians want to be saved by "Jesus Christ," an individual they know absolutely nothing about, including his actual name and purpose.

As for being confused, there is no other informed or rational response to the preposterous notion that the Pauline letters comprising half of the Christian New Testament were inspired by the same god who provided us with the Torah and Prophets. One is at war with the other. Then, recognizing that there is no evidence whatsoever to validate the authenticity of Paul's letters and overwhelming and irrefutable proof that the Torah and Prophets were Divinely authored based upon the history, science, and prophecies contained in them, the only rational conclusion is to reject Paul's letters, and in so doing, toss away the sole basis for Christianity. And yet billions believe the obvious lie and a few thousand embrace the truth. If you are still at the point that you would benefit from additional proof that Paul was a false prophet, please consider www.QuestioningPaul.com. It's free.

Incidentally, bible is based upon babel, which means "to confuse by intermixing."

There are a number of people who are taking the Shattering Myths, Observations, and Yada Yah radio programs and either archiving the audio files by topic or adding visuals to them to make videos. And while many people such as yourself have been introduced to Yahowah through them and come to learn from them, if you are as serious as you claim to be, you'd be bettered served to read the books upon which they are based. These include: www.YadaYah.com, www.AnIntroductionToGod.com, www.QuestioningPaul.com, and Observations (available at www.BlessYahowah.com and www.YahowahBeryth.com - which also feature the archived audio files). These books are similar in that they begin by attempting to accurately translate Yahowah's testimony and then evaluate it so that we can better understand it.

An Intro to God will provide all of the tools you'll need to begin verifying my translations and then doing your own. There are so many effective tools between interlinears and dictionaries, many of them free on line, it isn't difficult to translate the written word.

All of your questions are answered in the Word chapter of ITG, but the best place to start if your goal is to know Yahowah is the place you are currently reading, Yada Yah. My favorite is Observations, which is why I've attached a few chapters for your consideration, one of which covers the SM subject that kindled your interest.

After you have read Volumes One and Two of Yada Yah (http://yadayah.com/), Volumes One through Four of An Introduction to God (http://anintroductiontogod.com/An_Introduction_to_God-01.0-Dabar-His_Word.Torah), and Observations (http://yahowahberyth.com/), you will not only know Yahowah, you will understand precisely what He is offering and expects in return. If you need any additional help along the way, let me know.

While the books are all free online, should you prefef printed versions, they are available at: http://claitors.com/yada.htm.
