Remember that Yahuah told me to chisel out two flat stones, just like the ones He’d given me earlier. He also instructed me to make a wooden chest (an ark), then come up the mountain and meet with Him, where He told me that He would write these same words on the new stones that He’d written on before, and that I could put these stones in this special Ark. So I made an Ark out of acacia wood, and I chiseled two flat stones like the ones I broke. Then I carried the stones up the mountain, where Yahuah wrote the Ten Instructions on them, just as He’d done the first time. Remember these instructions were exactly what He’d announced from the fire, when you were gathered at the bottom of the mountain. And after Yahuah returned the stones to me, I took them down the mountainside and put them in the Ark of the Blood-Covenant Witness, just as He’d instructed (and they’re still there).
SINCE THE BLOOD-COVENANT THAT WAS JUST MADE ON MT. SINAI WAS NOW SMASHED AND CANCELLED, WHAT WAS TO BE DONE? BECAUSE OF MOSES’ PLEADING WITH HIM, YAHUSHA DECIDED TO GO AHEAD AND KEEP YISHARAL AS HIS BRIDE, HOWEVER THAT MEANT THE COVENANT-AGREEMENT (NOW TERMINATED) WOULD HAVE TO BE CUT AGAIN (RENEWED & RE-ESTABLISHED WITH ALL OF IT'S TERMS), WHICH IS WHAT YAHUSHA'S ACTUALLY DOING BY TELLING MOSES TO CUT TWO NEW TABLETS OF STONE TO REPLACE THE BROKEN ONES, AND TO BRING THOSE BLANK TABLETS BACK UP TO THE MT. SINAI’S SUMMIT.
INTERESTING POINT: Notice that when Yahusha raised up the Blood-Covenant with Abraham, then passed it down to Isaac and then to Jacob, it was never in jeopardy. In it’s earlier versions (of the same instructions), the Covenant-Agreement was merely a promise from Yahusha, with no quid pro quo or formal conditions. There was nothing mankind, or Yisharal could do to break the Covenant and bring its cancellation.
However (as we’ve discussed) each time Yahusha renewed and raised up His Blood-Covenant with another generation throughout history, He tweeked it, brought it closer to that of a marriage and intensified the love within it. So the Blood-Covenant given to Moses on Mt. Sinai was never created to replace Abraham’s Covenant, but to intensify and bring to fruition and completion, everything promised to Abraham. Recall Yahusha saying that He is going to boot out the Canaanites in order to establish Yisharal in Canaan in order to complete His promise (His Blood-Covenant) to Abraham.
Think of the Covenant in terms of a courtship process. In the early days Yahusha was setting the scene, introducing Himself and beginning a relationship with Abraham, then Isaac and Jacob. There was little mention of never worshipping other deities, and the level of intimacy was fairly distant and only occasional connection involving a stone-table (altar). Now recall all of the visitations, wonders and encounters between the time of Abraham and Moses and we can see an intensity and maturity in the marriage relationship can’t we? And now that the formal marriage vows and agreements have been made, Yisharal must not play the whore and commit adultery against her husband. And so goes the pattern of Covenant restoration until Messiah arrived on the scene, to complete the process of delivering His Bride (by dying and opening a portal within her for intimate connection).
REMEMBER YAHUSHA'S SINGULAR GOAL SINCE THE GARDEN WAS TO RESTORE HIS BRIDE BACK TO THE STATUS AND RELATIONSHIP OF THE COVENANT MARRIAGE HOME.
YAHUSHA SAYS “MAKE ME TWO STONE TABLETS LIKE THE FIRST”. THIS IS LANGUAGE SHOWING US THAT THE RENEWED COVENANT WAS TO BE EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE ONE THAT GOT TERMINATED.
“Very soon I’m going to renew My Blood-Covenant of Deliverance with the houses of Yisharal and Judah, not like I raised it up with their ancestors when I delivered them from Egypt, because they kept breaking it and playing the whore, even though I was a loyal, loving husband to them. No! this fresh, renewed Blood-Covenant will involve Me placing My instructions WITHIN THEM and writing it on their hearts, so that I can finally be their Alahim, and them My treasured people. Imagine that! No one will need to teach their friends or family how to KNOW ME, for everyone already will, from the least of them to the greatest. And I will forgive their wicked behaviour against Me and forget all about how disgusting and disobedient they’ve been. JER 31 BRS
NOTICE IN JEREMIAH 31 YAHUSHA SAYS, “I WILL PUT MY INSTRUCTIONS WITHIN THEM…..” WHAT INSTRUCTIONS? THE ONLY ONES THERE’S EVER BEEN. HOW CAN YAHUSHA PUT INTO MANKIND SOMETHING THAT NO LONGER EXISTS, OR THAT HE’S JUST CHANGED HIS MIND ABOUT? HOW CAN HIS INSTRUCTIONS (THE LAW) BE DEAD AND GONE, BUT THEN HE’S GOING TO PUT THAT DEAD-AND-GONE THING INSIDE OF US? ARE WE WHO CLAIM THAT YAHUSHA NEVER CHANGES GOING TO CONTINUE TO MAINTAIN THAT HE DID CHANGE BUT THAT THIS PARTICULAR CHANGE DOESN’T COUNT AS CHANGING? THAT HE CREATED ONE INSTRUCTION, THEN SCREWED IT UP INTO A BALL AND THREW IT AWAY, AND CREATED A WHOLE NEW ONE SUBSTANTIALLY DIFFERENT FROM THE FIRST? ONE THAT SAYS THERE’S NO NEED FOR OBEDIENCE ANYMORE? WHAT’S THE POINT OF HAVING INSTRUCTIONS IF THERE’S NO REQUIREMENT TO FOLLOW THEM? IN THE SHEMA OF DEUT 6 THE ORIGINAL INSTRUCTIONS OF MT. SINAI WERE ALSO SPECIFICALLY “WRITTEN ON THE HEART”. SO TO SAY THAT THE `OLD' WAS ONLY WRITTEN ON STONE AND NOT WRITTEN ON THE HEART BUT ONLY THE `NEW’ ONE WAS, IS SCRIPTURALLY INACCURATE. AND WHO IS THIS RENEWED BLOOD-COVENANT GOING TO BE MADE BY AND BETWEEN? BY YAHUSHA (OF COURSE) AND WITH THE HOUSE OF YISHARAL AND THE HOUSE OF JUDAH. DID IT SAY ANYTHING ABOUT FOREIGNERS OR GENTILES (OUTSIDE NATIONS)? NOPE !
Later we set up camp at the wells belonging to the descendants of Jaakan. Then we moved on and camped at Moserah, where Aaron died and was buried, and his son Eleazar became the high-priest. Next, we camped at Gudgodah and then at Jotbathah, where there are flowing streams. After I put the two stones of Instructions into the Ark, Yahuah chose and separated the tribe of Levi, to not only carry the Ark on their shoulders, but also to serve as His set-apart priests at the Tabernacle, to worship and to bless the other tribes in His Name, which they still do. Yahuah promised that He would always provide for the tribe of Levi, and that’s why they won’t be getting any land inheritance, when Yahuah divides it all up among the other tribes. When I’d taken the second set of stones up the mountain, I spent forty days and nights there, just as I’d done before and Yahuah honoured my request and didn’t destroy you all. Instead He told me, “Moses, get ready to lead the people into the land that I promised their ancestors.”
JUST AS YAHUSHA SEPARATED YISHARAL FROM THE REST OF THE WORLD TO MAKE THEM A SEPARATE PEOPLE FOR HIMSELF, SO HE SEPARATED THE TRIBE OF LEVI FROM THE REST OF YISHARAL TO BE A SEPARATE PRIESTHOOD FOR HIMSELF. IN BOTH CASES THE ELECTION OF YISHARAL AND THEN THE TRIBE OF LEVI TO BE SET-APART WAS ACCOMPLISHED BY MEANS OF A DECLARATION BY YAHUSHA AND HAD ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH MERIT OR SOME UNIQUE LEVEL OF PURITY OR OBEDIENCE. EVEN THOUGH THE HEBREWS WERE SET-APART THEY DIDN’T STOP BEING HUMAN BEINGS THAT LIVED ON PLANET EARTH AND SHARED IT WITH EVERYONE ELSE; BUT THEY WERE GIVEN A DIFFERENT PURPOSE AND DIFFERENT STATUS AND EVEN A SET-APART LAND. AND EVEN THOUGH THE LEVITES WERE SET-APART FROM YISHARAL THEY DIDN’T STOP BEING HEBREWS EITHER; BUT THEY WERE GIVEN A DIFFERENT PURPOSE AND A DIFFERENT STATUS FROM THE OTHER 12 TRIBES. AS YAHUSHA’S BRIDE WE HAVEN’T STOPPED BEING HUMAN NOR ARE WE TO STOP LIVING IN THE WORLD; BUT WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN A DIFFERENT PURPOSE AND STATUS THAN THOSE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE. AND THIS SPECIAL PURPOSE AND STATUS IS ACCOMPLISHED BY MEANS OF A DECLARATION FROM YAHUSHA AND NOTHING ELSE.
People of Yisharal, what does Yahuah your Alahim want from you? He wants you to follow Him in all fear and respect, and to love and serve Him with all your heart and being, and to obey His Instructions and teachings that I’m giving you today. Do this, and all will go well for you. For everything belongs to Yahuah your Alahim, not only the earth and everything on it, but also the sky and the galaxies (EVERYTHING IN BOTH DIMENSIONS). Yet He loved your ancestors, delighted in them, wanting them to belong to Him. So He chose them and their descendants rather than any other nation, and today you are still His people.
So remember your Blood-Covenant agreement with Yahuah and stop being so stiff-necked and stubborn (circumcise the foreskins of your heart) for Yahuah your Alahim is more powerful than all those other fake deities and idols, and His tremendous power is to be feared. His decisions are always fair, and you can’t manipulate or bribe Him to change His mind. He defends the rights of the orphans and widows, cares for foreigners and gives them food and clothing too, just as you should too, since you were foreigners and slaves in Egypt.
Respect Yahuah your Alahim, serve only Him, make promises in His Name and offer your praises to Him and Him alone, because you’ve all seen Him work such terrifying miracles for you. When your ancestors went to live in Egypt, there were only seventy of them. But Yahuah has blessed you, and now there are more of you than there are stars in the sky.
NOTICE THAT “LOVE” IS NOT THE ONLY DEMAND. INTERESTINGLY EVEN THOUGH EARLIER IN DEUTERONOMY AND LATER IN THE GOSPELS WE’LL BE TOLD THAT THE INSTRUCTIONS CAN BE SUMMED UP BY “LOVING YAHUAH YOUR ALAHIM WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART, BEING, AND STRENGTH….”, IN OTHER VERSES WE ARE TOLD REPEATEDLY THAT YAHUSHA’S DEFINITION OF LOVING HIM MEANS OBEDIENCE TO HIS INSTRUCTIONS (WHICH ALL THE BLOOD-COVENANT PROMISES HINGE UPON). FURTHER, YAHUSHA DEMANDS THAT THERE IS A WAY THAT HE BE SHOWN LOVE TOO.
ONE OF THE STANDARD QUESTIONS THAT A MARRIAGE COUNSELOR WILL ASK A HUSBAND AND A WIFE IS: 'HOW DO YOU WANT TO BE SHOWN LOVE?' MARRIAGE COUNSELORS SAY THAT CENTRAL TO PROBLEMS WITHIN MARRIAGE IS A SPOUSE NOT BEING WILLING TO SHOW LOVE TO THEIR PARTNER IN WAYS THAT PARTNER CAN RECOGNIZE AND ACCEPT AS GENUINE LOVE. SCRIPTURE EVEN GIVES US A GENERALISATION ABOUT THIS ISSUE OF LOVE WITHIN HUMAN MARRIAGE: IT SAYS THAT WOMEN SHOULD RESPECT THEIR HUSBANDS, AND HUSBANDS SHOULD LOVE THEIR WIVES IN THE SAME WAY YAHUSHA LOVED HIS ASSEMBLY (HE SURRENDERED HIMSELF AND BECAME A SUFFERING SERVANT AND LIVING SACRIFICE FOR HER).
"CIRCUMCISE THE FORESKIN OF YOUR HEART"
The illustration is that to circumcise the foreskin of your heart means to remove the protective (even impenetrable) covering over your mind, thinking, decisions and behaviours that keep Yahusha from entering in and surrender to Him. It means to stop being stubborn and hard-headed and blocking His Words from taking root in your thoughts. While the circumcision of the flesh is Yahusha’s sign of the Blood-Covenant as given to Abraham, to be worn by all hebrew males, a circumcised heart (mind) should be the inward spiritual companion of that outward fleshly operation. Paul says that a fleshly circumcision without the accompanying change of mind that moves us towards harmony and intimacy with Yahusha is eternally worthless. FURTHER, SINCE YAHUSHA’S DEATH, ONE DOES NOT NEED A FLESHLY CIRCUMCISION IN ORDER TO DEMONSTRATE OR ACHIEVE A CIRCUMCISION OF THE HEART.
Right after talking about circumcision, Moses says `don’t be a stiff-necked people” meaning stubborn and unresponsive. Moses is saying to Yisharal that by allowing your heart to be circumcised by His Spirit you will no longer be a hard-headed and hard-hearted person. You will change !
SO NOW THAT WE KNOW THAT YAHUSHA DESIRES FOR US TO KNOW HIM, WHERE HE IS & HOW HE FEELS, HOW DO WE STAY CONNECTED TO HIM ?
WHAT DOES SHAMAYIM MEAN ?
HEBREW:8064 Shamayim: to be lofty; the sky (as aloft; the dual perhaps alluding to the visible arch in which the clouds move, as well as to the higher ether where the celestial bodies revolve), air, astrologer, heaven(-s).
SHAMAYIM also means "where I am," and its location is considered a lofty place alluding to the visible arch in which the clouds move and where the higher ether and celestial bodies revolve.
SCIENTISTS KNOW THAT YAHUSHA WENT SOMEWHERE ON THE CLOUDS AND HAVE ALWAYS TRIED TO FIND AN ENTRANCE INTO SHAMAYIM. We know from our studies that Yahusha opened a portal/invisible seam, into another dimension which is Shamayim. He rules and reigns this world and universe from His lofty throne in Shamayim, and since Yahusha conquered Satan and death He is making plans to destroy all those who reject His Words of life and deliverance. Mankind must indeed be punished for everything they've done to this world and everything they've built will be destroyed.
SCIENTISTS KNOW THAT THERE IS A SOURCE OF ETERNAL LIFE IN SHAMAYIM AND THEY WANT TO INVADE THIS TERRITORY, TO STEAL THIS SOURCE. They know that the human flesh reaches a mature stage of the full development of it's natural beauty (what an amazing creation), then every gene in the body miraculously starts to deteriorate. This is called age. These scientists want to stop the ageing process all together, and to keep flesh alive eternally. However only Yahusha can do such an amazing thing as create eternal life (the complete absence of death and evil).
SCIENTISTS ARE FURIOUS THAT THEY CANNOT CREATE LIFE, OR MAKE IT LAST, AND THEY'VE RAVAGED THE EARTH FOR RESOURCES FOR THEIR COSTLY MATERIALS IN ORDER TO BUILD FABRICS AND METALS THAT WILL PROTECT THEM WHEN THEY INVADE SHAMAYIM (THEY THINK). It is insane for scientists to think they can create life, let alone invade Shamayim.
ANOTHER THING THEY DON'T REALISE IS, IF A DIMENSION IS HIDDEN FROM EARTHLINGS BECAUSE THEY ARE UNCLEAN, EVEN THEIR FANCY FABRICS CANNOT SAVE THEM FROM THE RADIANT HEAT GENERATED FROM YAHUSHA'S ETERNITY. WHEN THIS PORTAL OPENS AND YAHUSHA IS BRINGING TIME TO ITS COMPLETION, THIS UNIVERSE IS MELTED TO NOTHING. HOW ARE SCIENTISTS GOING TO STAND IN THEIR PRECIOUS FABRICS, WHEN THE PURE CLEAN PRESENCE OF YAHUSHA COMES FORTH.
Isaiah 34:4 Isaiah 34:4 and Revelation 6:14 say that the Shamayim will be rolled up like a scroll. Some `New Testament' passages also refer to falling stars (Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Revelation 6). Interesting eh?
Shamayim is classed as "the heavens," but not "a Heaven." The idea of "going to heaven" does not exist in the paleo Hebrew, but does exist in the world since Constantine mixed pagan concepts with Yahusha's Instructions. There is no such place as heaven and hell in Scripture, it is all a pagan man-made concept to control people and get their money. When we die we go into the dust and await the 1st or 2nd Resurrections (the 1st for reward, the 2nd for judgment).
How much terrorism, violence, suicide bombing, crusades, religious hatred and false hope has been behaved on this earth under the wicked delusion of `going to heaven' and being rewarded in some way? The word `Shamayim' in Scripture does not mean a pagan heaven! It is used to refer to either `Yahusha's higher dimension' or to the `skies, cosmos or universe'in general. It is not a destination of reward in the afterlife!! Yahusha's new city will break through into THIS earthly dimension, we will not be going somewhere else!!
SO WHERE IS HE?. . . . . IN SHAMAYIM (ANOTHER DIMENSION)
THERE IS NO OTHER WAY TO KNOW YAHUSHA AND BE CONNECTED TO `WHERE HE IS' EXCEPT THROUGH A BLOOD-COVENANT RELATIONSHIP, ONE THAT BEGUN WITH THE FIRST MAN AND WOMAN IN THE GARDEN AND CONTINUED FOR THOUSANDS OF GENERATIONS AS YAHUSHA CALLS, RESTORES, AWAKENS AND PREPARES A SPOTLESS PERFECT BRIDE FOR HIS SOON RETURN. AND ON THAT GREAT AND AWESOME DAY, THE TINY PORTION OF HIS ESTEEM AND DELIVERANCE (AND PORTAL CONNECTION) WITHIN US WILL BE ENGULFED AND OVERFLOWING WITH THE RADIANCE OF HIS MAGNIFICENCE AS WE ARE RENT OF OUT FLESH AND WE PUT ON ETERNAL IMMORTALITY - TRANFORMED INTO THE BRIDE OF YAHUSHA FOR ALL TIME. HALLELUYAH !!!
