The Sword Of The Hebrews.

The Sword Of The Hebrews is the 'Torah'.
Be strong and very bold in taking care
to follow all the Torah... Then you will
succeed wherever you go. (Joshua 1:7).

The Sword Of The Hebrews.
Are you strong enough to wield it?


Samuel tells the ancient story, of the time the Philistines captured the land of Israel, and got rid of all the blacksmiths. None of the Hebrews had a sword, or the means to make or get one. The Hebrew Scriptures [or Tanakh] is the Sword of The ETERNAL CREATOR. So too, as in the time of the ancient Philistines, we live in a time when present-day "Philistines", have again tried to take away our sword, and likewise the means to learn about it.

This essay is an in-depth study of The ETERNAL's ways, from His point of view. You will be seeing things, and learning things through His eyes. That is; IF you have the courage to continue reading it. IF you have the curiosity to check the details in your Scriptures. IF you are strong enough to stand against the accepted dogma of the day. Because, IF what He is showing you today resonates with the vibrant tone of truth, then you will know that you are being called by the Mighty CREATOR of the Universe, to a new level of understanding and truth. So IF you want to learn 'The Absolute Truth', please read on.

Can you turn your back on beliefs that you, and your family and friends, have probably believed for years or even generations, IF they can be proven to be false? Can you be the one in a million who will respond to the truth? Are you part of the remnant? Will you make a stand for the ETERNAL and His Righteous way of life? Will you worship His way, on His Holy Sabbath* day? Will you keep His Feasts at His appointed times?

*For more on the Sabbath, see the article: 'Recovering The Lost Sabbath', and the index heading: 'The CREATOR's Calendar'.

In these articles and essays, you will see proofs, demonstrated in Scripture, about The Redeemer, The Savior, and The Mashiyach (Messiah) that will be truth - not pagan imitations. You will see how the ETERNAL has tested us and most of us have failed! You will see things that will help you understand why the ETERNAL is so angry with the shepherds (pastors, ministers, priests, popes, rabbis etc.).

This is a trail of tears, as well as a trail of wondrous revealings of knowledge and learning; There will be hurt and loss, and there will be anger, you will be shaken to the core, but once you come through all of that you will be among the very few, blessed and protected sons and daughters, of the Mighty One Of Israel, The ETERNAL CREATOR Himself; The Only Redeemer and Savior of mankind! Out of knowledge and understanding, comes repentance, change, and healing. Today dear friend, He wants to give you that knowledge and understanding. But you must want it, with your whole heart, with your whole soul, and only if you are willing to seek it with all your might.

You are now facing a critically important decision. Once you see the truth, you have to act on it, or suffer the consequences. If you read from this point forward, you will never be the same again. Please pray for His Mighty guidance and strength before you begin. This is an awe inspiring journey, that will not come easy. It is not for those who are content to play attend church, and be brainwashed taught deceptions, lies and untruths, by their pastors, ministers, priests, popes, and rabbis etc. The only thing you will learn that way, is what they know, which is very little, and nothing useful or truthful. If the CREATOR isn't teaching you, then you are open to being decieved. As you will see, everything you thought you knew about the ETERNAL CREATOR, salvation, and his grand plan for you, is probably incorrect at best, and willfully misrepesented to you purposely, at worst.

Here is some wisdom from the CREATOR Himself, to get you started:

(Hosea 4:6)[1] (TLB) My people are destroyed because they don't know me, and it is all your fault, you priests, for you yourselves refuse to know me; therefore, I refuse to recognize you as my priests. Since you have forgotten my laws, I will 'forget' to bless your children.

The Day Test.

Does it not strike you as odd that the vast majority of people who claim to worship the ETERNAL CREATOR ignore His Commandment "To honour the seventh day"? The King James Bible mentions keeping the Sabbath 144 times. Do you think the ETERNAL is trying to tell us this is important?

(Exodus 16:25-26) (VOICE) 25Moses said Eat what is left over today, because today is a Sabbath to the ETERNAL[2], a day of rest. You will not find any of it in the field today. 26You are to gather it for six days, but on the seventh day (the Sabbath), none of it will be on the ground.

(Exodus 16:27-30) (KJ21) 27And it came to pass that there went out some of the people on the seventh day to gather, and they found none. 28And the ETERNAL said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep My commandments and My laws? 29See, for the ETERNAL hath given you the Sabbath; therefore He giveth you on the sixth day the bread for two days. Abide ye every man in his place. Let no man go out of his place on the seventh day. 30So the people rested on the seventh day.

The CREATOR delivered manna for six days, with a double portion on the sixth day, for the FORTY YEAR duration of the exodus.

(Exodus 20:8-11) (KJV) 8Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 10But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the ETERNAL thy CREATOR: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11For in six days the CREATOR made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the CREATOR blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.

This is not optional; it is a "Test"[3] of The ETERNAL, to see whether you will honor and obey Him or not. The ETERNAL has made it clear by His Word and His example that we are to keep the Sabbath. Our next quote from Exodus is much more specific. Remember very well, that this is from The ETERNAL, "who does not change":

(Exodus 31:12-17) (NIV) 12Then the ETERNAL said to Moses, 13Say to the Israelites, You must observe my Sabbaths. This will be a sign between me and you for the generations to come, so you may know that I am the ETERNAL, who makes you holy. 14Observe the Sabbath, because it is holy to you. Anyone who desecrates it is to be put to death; those who do any work on that day must be cut off from their people. 15For six days work is to be done, but the seventh day is a day of Sabbath rest, holy to the CREATOR. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day is to be put to death. 16The Israelites are to observe the Sabbath, celebrating it for the generations to come as a lasting covenant. 17It will be a sign between Me and the Israelites forever, for in six days the CREATOR made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.

There you have it. The Sabbath is an everlasting Covenant; a sign forever between the Children of Israel and The ETERNAL CREATOR. The Jews are just one thirteenth of the Children of Israel. The ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom were taken away into captivity and have never returned. Together, their journeys and intermingling with the European and Middle Eastern peoples have spread them throughout the world. The Children of Israel have a weakness for worshipping other 'gods' and 'idols' and so you would expect to find their descendants involved with the various religions around the world, still doing the same things they have always done. Today, they are unknowingly waiting on the call, that will reveal to them their need to worship the one and Only true ETERNAL CREATOR and SOVEREIGN of the universe. Will You hear that call? Keeping the Sabbath Holy, is the ETERNAL's first test of loyalty. You will find that as you discover and keep the Real Sabbath, the ETERNAL CREATOR will bless you and increase your understanding. There is nothing in the inspired writings of the Hebrew Scriptures [Tanakh or OT], that gives us any reason to think that the true Sabbath day has been changed or ever could be. Will You pass this first test? Will You Honor Him, and keep the Sabbath as He requires You to keep it, as He has shown in His commandments that it should be kept?

Why You?

You are reading this because you either already keep the Sabbath, or decided that you want to. This is a very important sign, that you are willing [or desire] to be obedient to the ETERNAL CREATOR of the universe, as He begins to give you a clear understanding of His word. Keeping the Sabbath, is His answer to the prayers of His people, wanting to please Him, and serve Him, as HE desires you to.

These articles and essays, are based on His teachings exclusively. Teachings, that He has revealed in the Hebrew Scriptures [Tanakh or OT] only. The Hebrew Scriptures are a series of revealed truths, as He revealed them. If you read the Hebrew Scriptures [in their complete context], and pray for knowledge and understanding, as you seek the truths of the ETERNAL with your whole heart, with your whole soul and with all your might, He will grant you that knowledge and understanding.

This is His promise to you:

(Proverbs 8:17) (NASB) I love those who love me; And those who diligently seek me will find me.

(Isaiah 45:19) (NASB) I have not spoken in secret, In some dark land; I did not say to the offspring of Jacob, 'Seek Me in a waste place'; I, the ETERNAL, speak righteousness, Declaring things that are upright.

(Isaiah 55:6-7) (ESV) 6Seek the ETERNAL while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near. 7Let the wicked forsake his way And the unrighteous man his thoughts; And let him return to the ETERNAL, And He will have compassion on him, And to our SOVEREIGN, For He will abundantly pardon.

(Jeremiah 29:11-14) (NASB) 11'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the ETERNAL, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. 12'Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13'You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. 14'I will be found by you,' declares the ETERNAL, 'and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you,' declares the ETERNAL, 'and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile.'

(Jeremiah 29:13) (HCSB) You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

(Hosea 10:12) (NASB) Sow with a view to righteousness, Reap in accordance with kindness; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the ETERNAL Until He comes to rain righteousness on you.

(Zephaniah 2:3) (NASB) Seek the ETERNAL, All you humble of the earth WHO HAVE CARRIED OUT HIS ORDINANCES; Seek righteousness, seek humility. Perhaps you will be hidden In the day of the ETERNAL'S anger.

You are not being asked to join anything. You are not being asked to believe anything. It is not between you and me. It is not between you and the pastors, ministers, priests, popes, rabbis etc. What you believe is between you and the ETERNAL CREATOR only. However, we will be praying that the ETERNAL will bless you with understanding:

(Joshua 1:7) (CJB) Only be strong and very bold in taking care to follow all the Torah which Moses my servant ordered you to follow; do not turn from it either to the right or to the left; then you will succeed wherever you go.

The Savior Test.

If you have been caught up [in one of these great deceptions, about a man from Galilee], you may very well be amazed and astonished to find out, that:

The ETERNAL alone is our "REDEEMER".
The ETERNAL alone is our "SAVIOR".
The ETERNAL alone is our "Rock".

Only The ETERNAL is our "REDEEMER"; Only The ETERNAL is our "SAVIOR":

(Psalms 106:21) (KJV) They forgat the ETERNAL their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;

(Isaiah 41:13-14) (KJV) 13For I the ETERNAL thy CREATOR will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. 14Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the ETERNAL, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.

(Isaiah 43:3) (KJV) For I am the ETERNAL thy CREATOR, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour:

(Isaiah 43:11-12) (KJV) 11I, even I, am the ETERNAL; and beside me there is no saviour. 12I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange CREATOR among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the ETERNAL, that I am SOVEREIGN.

(Isaiah 45:15) (KJV) Verily thou art a SOVEREIGN that hidest thyself, O ETERNAL of Israel, the Saviour.

(Isaiah 45:21-22) (KJV) 21Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the ETERNAL? and there is no CREATOR else beside me; a just SOVEREIGN and a Saviour; there is none beside me. 22Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am the ETERNAL, and there is none else.

(Isaiah 47:4) (KJV) As for our redeemer, the ETERNAL of hosts is his name, the Holy One of Israel.

(Isaiah 49:26) (KJV) And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the ETERNAL am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

(Isaiah 54:5) (KJV) For thy Maker is thine husband; the ETERNAL of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The SOVEREIGN of the whole earth shall he be called.

(Isaiah 60:16) (KJV) Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the ETERNAL am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

(Isaiah 63:8) (KJV) For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Saviour.

(Jeremiah 14:7-8) (KJV) 7O ETERNAL, though our iniquities testify against us, do thou it for thy name's sake: for our backslidings are many; we have sinned against thee. 8O the hope of Israel, the saviour thereof in time of trouble, why shouldest thou be as a stranger in the land, and as a wayfaring man that turneth aside to tarry for a night?

(Hosea 13:4) (KJV) Yet I am the ETERNAL thy CREATOR from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no SOVEREIGN but me: for there is no saviour beside me.

Only The ETERNAL is "The Rock":

(Deuteronomy 32:3-4) (KJV) 3Because I will publish the name of the ETERNAL: ascribe ye greatness unto our CREATOR. 4He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a SOVEREIGN of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

(Deuteronomy 32:15) (KJV) But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook ETERNAL which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.

(Deuteronomy 32:18) (KJV) Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten ETERNAL that formed thee.

(2 Samuel 22:2-3) (KJV) 2And he said, The ETERNAL is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; 3The CREATOR of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.

(2 Samuel 22:47) (KJV) The ETERNAL liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the CREATOR of the rock of my salvation.

(Psalms 18:2) (KJV) The ETERNAL is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my CREATOR, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

(Psalms 18:31) (KJV) For who is SOVEREIGN save the ETERNAL? or who is a rock save our CREATOR?

(Habakkuk 1:12) (KJV) Art thou not from everlasting, O Yahweh my CREATOR, mine Holy One? we shall not die. O Yahweh, thou hast ordained them for judgment; and, O mighty Rock, thou hast established them for correction.

Let us first spend a brief time discussing the Hebrew Scriptures. The Hebrew Scriptures [the Tanakh], that are the basis of the Old Testament, was first written in Hebrew with a small portion in Aramaic. The Hebrew language does not have numbers in it so letters have a numerical value. If you copy a line of Hebrew you can add up the value of the letters to ensure that what you have written is identical to the line you copied. This is how the Hebrew Scriptures [the Tanakh], have been preserved over time so that they are always the same. A committee of three men checks the writing of the scribes of the Hebrew Scriptures [the Tanakh] - if there is one error, the whole scroll is discarded. This method of checking does not apply to English or other source languages used for other translations. Worse still, in order to obtain a copyright for any 'new' translation of the Hebrew Scriptures, it is necessary that it be different from other translations - this does not lend itself to accuracy.

Through the word of the prophets, The ETERNAL CREATOR speaks to us. In each of the following extracts, The ETERNAL CREATOR makes it abundantly clear that He is the ONLY Redeemer; that He is the ONLY Savior; that He is the ONLY Mighty One of Israel.

If you believe there is more than one being in the 'godhead', for example [the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit], you are in error. In addition to just being in error, if you teach others that there is more than one being, either intentionally or unintentionally, their blood is on your hands. This is where the rubber hits the road, there is nowhere to hide; the ETERNAL will find you:

(Deuteronomy 18:20) (KJV) But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other 'gods', even that prophet shall die.

Savior and Redeemer.

Part of the ETERNAL CREATOR's test for us, is to determine if we, the Hebrew Children of Israel, will remain faithful to Him, and revere Him, as their ONLY Savior and Redeemer:

(Deuteronomy 30:20) (ESV) That thou mayest love The ETERNAL thy CREATOR, and that thou mayest obey His voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto Him: for He is thy life, and the length of thy days...

(Isaiah 41:13-14) (ESV) 13For I, the ETERNAL your CREATOR, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, Fear not, I am the one who helps you. 14Fear not, you worm Jacob, you men of Israel! I am the one who helps you, declares the ETERNAL; your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel.

(Isaiah 45:21-22) (KJV) 21Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the ETERNAL? and there is no CREATOR else beside me; a just SOVEREIGN and a Saviour; there is none beside me. 22Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am the ETERNAL, and there is none else.

There is no prophecy in the Hebrew Scriptures of a 'Savior' coming to cleanse the sins of humankind, because there is in place already, a Day when our sins against the ETERNAL are forgiven.[4] That is The Day of Atonement, described in (Leviticus 23) as a Law for all time, throughout the ages:

(Leviticus 23:26-28) (KJV) 26And the ETERNAL spake unto Moses, saying, 27Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the ETERNAL. 28And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the ETERNAL your CREATOR.

No one who is obedient to the CREATOR of the Universe, needs any other 'god' [self-proclaimed or otherwise], as a sacrifice; particularly since human sacrifice is strictly forbidden in the Hebrew Scriptures. The idea that the ETERNAL would allow a son of His to be sacrificed, is as abhorrent to Him, as it is ludicrous:

(Deuteronomy 12:31) (NIRV) You must not worship the ETERNAL your CREATOR the way they worship their 'gods'. When they worship, they do all kinds of evil things the ETERNAL hates. They even burn up their children in the fire as sacrifices to their 'gods'.

The Eucharist, with its partaking of the flesh and blood, of the sacrificial 'man-god' savior, is a TOTAL ABOMINATION to the ETERNAL and it is a nauseating sight for Him to see. Moreover, The CREATOR categorically and steadfastly refuses to share His Glory or the Praise He is due, with any other 'gods' or graven images [such as religious figurines]:

(Isaiah 42:5-8) (KJ21) 5Thus saith the ETERNAL the CREATOR, He that created the heavens and stretched them out, He that spread forth the earth and that which cometh out of it, He that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: 6I, the ETERNAL, have called Thee [Israel] in righteousness, and will hold Thine hand, and will keep Thee, and give Thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; 7to open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. 8I am the ETERNAL; that is My name. And My glory will I not give to another, neither My praise to graven images.

The ETERNAL declares; HE alone is The CREATOR, and that there are no other 'gods'[5] ever, and that He does not need the assistance of a self-proclaimed 'sacrificial savior', to help Him forgive your sins:

(Isaiah 43:1-3) (NKJV) 1But now, thus says the ETERNAL, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine. 2When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. 3For I am the ETERNAL your CREATOR, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;...

(Isaiah 43:10-12) (KJ21) 10Ye [Israel] are My witnesses, saith the ETERNAL, and My servant whom I have chosen, that ye [Israel] may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He. Before Me there was no 'god' formed, neither shall there be after Me. 11I, even I, am the ETERNAL, and besides Me there is no savior. 12I have declared and have saved, and I have shown, when there was no strange 'god' among you; therefore ye [Israel] are My witnesses, saith the ETERNAL, that I am SOVEREIGN.

(Isaiah 43:25) (NCV) I, I am the One who erases all your sins, for my sake; I will not remember your sins.

No matter how many times, or how many ways the lying impostor and would-be usurper says it, (Revelation 22:13), The ETERNAL is ADAMANT that:


There is only ONE ETERNAL CREATER and SOVEREIGN of the universe (not 3, not 2):

(Isaiah 44:6) (CEB) The ETERNAL, Israel's king and redeemer, the SOVEREIGN of heavenly forces, says: I am the first, and I am the last, and besides me there are NO 'gods'.

(Isaiah 44:24) (AMP) Thus says the ETERNAL, your Redeemer, and He Who formed you from the womb: I am the CREATOR, Who made all things, Who alone stretched out the heavens, Who spread out the earth by Myself.

The Hebrew Scriptures [Tanakh, or OT] is a narrative of the ETERNAL's relationship with us. Through a series of Covenants, He put in place instructions [commandments, laws, statutes, and ordinances] which enable us to interact directly with Him, through communication, prayer, and more importantly, the correct way in which He wishes to be worshiped by us. As you can plainly see, He abhors seeing worship being given to idols of graven images on wood, and to 'gods' who do not exist:

(Isaiah 45:20-22) (NKJV) 20Assemble yourselves and come; Draw near together, You [Israel] who have escaped from the nations. They have no knowledge, Who carry the wood of their carved image, And pray to a 'god' that cannot save. 21Tell and bring forth your case; Yes, let them take counsel together. Who has declared this from ancient time? Who has told it from that time? Have not I, the ETERNAL? And there is no other CREATOR besides Me, A just SOVEREIGN and a Savior; There is none besides Me. 22Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth! For I am the ETERNAL, and there is no other.

We have all seen processions, where crosses of wood with graven[6] images of false idols, are venerated and paraded around through the streets. And with few exceptions, will you NOT find places of worship lacking idols, religious figurines, religious icons, and graven images of all kinds.

This paganism does not surprise The ETERNAL, but it does greatly offend Him. It will attract His wrath, just as much as praying to, or through, something else [the 'man-god jesus', 'mary, the mother of god', or any of the so-called 'saints' etc]. There are no acceptable degrees of disobedience. You can follow The ETERNAL, and His way for you to live, or you can follow something else, and pay the consequences.

The ETERNAL makes and keeps ALL His promises to us. If it is written in the Hebrew Scriptures [Tanakh or OT], it WILL happen. If you are obedient you will be strengthened, blessed, and protected. Even more, you will be a blessing to other people because of your obedience.

(Deuteronomy 28:1-14) (NKJV) 1Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the ETERNAL your CREATOR, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the ETERNAL your CREATOR will set you high above all nations of the earth. 2And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the ETERNAL your CREATOR: 3Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country. 4Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks. 5Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. 6Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out. 7The ETERNAL will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways. 8The ETERNAL will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the ETERNAL your CREATOR is giving you. 9The ETERNAL will establish you as a holy people to Himself, just as He has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the ETERNAL your CREATOR and walk in His ways. 10Then all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the ETERNAL, and they shall be afraid of you. 11And the ETERNAL will grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground, in the land of which the ETERNAL swore to your fathers to give you. 12The ETERNAL will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. 13And the ETERNAL will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the ETERNAL your CREATOR, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them. 14So you shall not turn aside from any of the words which I command you this day, to the right or the left, to go after other 'gods' to serve them.

The ETERNAL has many unique titles applicable ONLY to Him, such as, My Rock, My Shield, The Horn Of My Salvation, My High Tower, My Refuge, The Rock Of My Salvation, And My Saviour, among others[7]:

(Deuteronomy 32:4) (KJV) He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a SOVEREIGN of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

(Deuteronomy 32:15) (AMP) But Jeshurun (Israel) grew fat and kicked. You became fat, you grew thick, you were gorged and sleek! Then he forsook the ETERNAL Who made him and forsook and despised the Rock of his salvation.

(2 Samuel 22:3) (ASV) ETERNAL, my rock, in him will I take refuge; My shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge; My saviour, thou savest me from violence.

(2 Samuel 22:47) (AMP) The ETERNAL lives; blessed be my Rock, and exalted be ETERNAL, the Rock of my salvation.

(Psalms 62:2) (CEV) ETERNAL alone is the mighty rock that keeps me safe and the fortress where I am secure.

(Psalms 95:1) (KJ21) O come, let us sing unto the ETERNAL! Let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!

So far, we have seen that, The ETERNAL CREATOR and SOVEREIGN of the Universe is the ONLY Redeemer, Savior, and Rock of mankind, and that no one else has these titles. In true Abrahamic Hebrew faith, there are not multiple saviors, nor is human sacrifice permitted.[8] Neither is there the eating of the flesh, or the drinking of the blood of anybody, nor is anyone "washed in blood", for the forgiveness of sins. Sins are forgiven only by repentance, backed up with a contrite, humble, and sincere heart[9], followed by applying all the knowledge He is now showing you, and by observing all the commandments, laws, and statutes found in the Hebrew Scriptures [OT].

For an in-depth study on this topic, please read the articles: 'Is Blood Required To Atone For Sin?', 'Are We Saved By Grace?', and 'Must We Keep The Commandments And Laws Today?'.

Your Responsibility As Watchmen (The Righteous Remnant).

(Leviticus 19:17) (TLB) "Don't hate your brother. Rebuke anyone who sins; don't let him get away with it, or you will be equally guilty."

(Isaiah 58:1) (KJV) "Cry aloud, spare not; Lift up your voice like a trumpet; Tell My people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins."

(Ezekiel 3:18-21) (KJV) 18When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. 19Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. 20Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand. 21Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.

(Ezekiel 12:15-16) (KJV) 15Then when I have scattered them among the nations and dispersed them through the countries, they shall know that I am the ETERNAL. 16But I will spare a few of them from the sword, from famine, and from pestilence, that they may recount all their abominable deeds among the nations to which they come; and they shall know that I am the ETERNAL!

In summary, to be righteous and faithful to The ETERNAL, and mankind, always carry the 'The Sword Of The Hebrews' with you wherever you go. Wield it with all the power and might of The ETERNAL CREATOR, and you will never go wrong. Be a defender of the Hebrew Faith, and a shining example to The Children Of Israel. Now that you have come this far in learning The ETERNAL's ways, it's up to you to use what The CREATOR has shown you. Encourage your family and friends to seek out the ETERNAL CREATOR, and to walk in all His ways. That is your duty to The ETERNAL. Once that duty is fulfilled, there can be no one to accuse you of not telling them the right way they should go. Even if they shun that message, you shall be guiltless in The ETERNAL's eyes, for you have fulfilled your duty to The ETERNAL your CREATOR.

David - The Once and Future King.

The Scriptures speak often of a Messiah. The English word 'Messiah' appears only 2 times in scripture. The Hebrew word 'Mashiyach', from which it comes, appears 39 times. In both cases it simply means: to be 'anointed'. The English word 'anointed' comes from the Hebrew word 'mashach' which means: to smear, anoint, spread a liquid [usually some type of oil]. Nowhere in Scripture does it mean 'A SAVIOR', or 'THE SAVIOR'. Satan has been quite busy, trying to mislead you concerning the meaning and identity of the 'Messiah'. The prophecies about the Mashiyach are in the Hebrew Scriptures [the Tanakh], because the prophecies are a promise to all the children of Israel. The Jews (i.e. Judah) are just a one-thirteenth part of Israel. The first time the word Jew is used in the Hebrew Scriptures (2 Kings 16:5-6), the Jews are at war with Israel! So despite their insistence to the contrary, these prophecies are not for the Jews only.

Regardless of what you've been led to believe, there are NO prophecies that the "Mashiyach" [a Messiah] was to be born of a virgin (that's baalism), or that he would be sacrificed for the sins of the world (that too is baalism). The REAL "Mashiyach" is prophesied to be raised up [stand] from the grave (there is no Hebrew word for resurrect) at the end of days. He is even identified, by name, so that there can be NO mistake as to his true identity!

Incredible you say? Not really. It's been there all the time. The problem is when we play attend church, we are brainwashed taught deceptions, lies and untruths, by our pastors, ministers, priests, popes, and rabbis etc. The only thing you will learn that way, is what they know, which is very little, and nothing useful or truthful. So I'll say it again; If the CREATOR isn't teaching you, then you are open to being decieved.

Here is what The ETERNAL has to say to His shepherds and priests, both then and now:

(Jeremiah 23:1-2) (CEB) 1Watch out, you shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture, declares the The ETERNAL. 2This is what the The ETERNAL, the SOVEREIGN of Israel, proclaims about the shepherds who tend to my people: You are the ones who have scattered my flock and driven them away. You haven't attended to their needs, so I will take revenge on you for the terrible things you have done to them, declares the ETERNAL.

(Hosea 4:6) (TLB) My people are destroyed because they don't know me, and it is all your fault, you priests, for you yourselves refuse to know me; therefore, I refuse to recognize you as my priests. Since you have forgotten my laws, I will 'forget' to bless your children. - (ALL Versions)

David was the eighth and youngest son of Jesse from the kingly tribe of Judah. David began his life as a shepherd in Bethlehem. One day, the prophet Samuel called him out of the field and anointed him without the knowledge of the current king, Saul. Upon being anointed by Samuel, the spirit of The ETERNAL rested on David from that day forward. Afterwards, David simply returned to his sheep. You will understand the significance, of the spirit of the ETERNAL coming on David from that day on, as we dig deeper into these verses, articles, and essays.[11]:

(1 Samuel 16:12-13) (CEB) 12So Jesse sent and brought him [David] in. He was reddish brown, had beautiful eyes, and was good-looking. The ETERNAL said, That's the one. Go anoint him. 13So Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him [David] right there in front of his brothers. The ETERNAL's spirit came over David from that point forward. Then Samuel left and went to Ramah.

I know you have been brainwashed told that these Psalms are attributed to another so-called 'savior', but in reality it is King David sharing the very good news about the covenant The ETERNAL made with him:

(Psalms 2:1-9) (KJ21) 1Why do the heathen rage, and the people devise a vain thing? 2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the ETERNAL and against His Anointed [King David], saying, 3Let us break Their bonds asunder, and cast away Their cords from us. 4He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh; the ETERNAL shall hold them in derision. 5Then shall He [ETERNAL] speak unto them in His wrath, and vex them in His sore displeasure: 6Yet have I set My King [David] upon My holy hill of Zion. 7I will declare the decree: The ETERNAL hath said unto Me, Thou [King David] art My Son; this day have I begotten Thee. 8Ask of Me, and I shall give Thee the heathen for Thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for Thy possession. 9Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; Thou shalt dash them to pieces like a potter's vessel.

After David stands from his grave, The ETERNAL personally annoints David with His Holy Oil [made a spirit being like the ETERNAL, and given eternal life], and proceeds to crush his adversaries and enemies [all the rebellious ones of the children of Israel that opposed him]. With faithfulness and lovingkindness The ETERNAL CREATOR then adopts David by placing His Name on him, making David His first-born son.

These are not some vague falsified scriptures, pointing to an equally vague, falsified, self-appointed, and unnamed supposed 'son of god', 'messiah'. No, The ETERNAL does nothing in secret, nor in the dark. He names, names. He is clear, concise, and exact in all the words He speaks. Nothing He says is ever ambiguous, unlike the Mumbo-Jumbo of a certain false prophet who speaks in riddles and parables.*

*For a complete in-depth study on this topic, please read: 'Our True Creator And Redeemer' and 'Quest For The Messiah'.

Finally, The ETERNAL coronates David to the position of 'The highest of the kings of the earth', making it permanent with a covenant that shall stand forever:

(Psalms 89:20-28) (KJ21) 20I [the ETERNAL] have found David my servant; With My holy oil have I anointed him: 21With him My hand shall be established; Mine arm shall also strengthen him. 22The enemy shall not exact from him, Nor the son of wickedness afflict him. 23And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him. 24But My faithfulness and My mercy shall be with him, And in My NAME shall his horn be exalted. 25I will set his hand also over the sea, and his right hand over the rivers. 26He shall cry unto Me, Thou art my Father, My CREATOR, and the rock of my salvation. 27Also I will make him My firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth. 28My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and My covenant shall stand fast with him.

You know what happens when a root sprouts - a branch (shoot) comes out of the ground. It is important to carefully look at what is being said here: A shoot will grow up from the stump of Jesse. It does not say: a shoot will grow up from the stump of David. So this is in fact speaking about DAVID, and not some future so-called 'savior' OFFSPRING of David's! Where is King David at this time? He is in the ground. As we noted earlier, the spirit of the ETERNAL rested upon David in his lifetime, and The ETERNAL promises it will do so again, in the future:

(Isaiah 11:1-5) (CEB) 1A shoot will grow up from the stump of Jesse; a branch will sprout from his roots. 2The ETERNAL's spirit will rest upon him, a spirit of wisdom and understanding, a spirit of planning and strength, a spirit of knowledge and fear of the ETERNAL. 3He will delight in fearing the ETERNAL. He won't judge by appearances, nor decide by hearsay. 4He will judge the needy with righteousness, and decide with equity for those who suffer in the land. He will strike the violent with the rod of his mouth; by the breath of his lips he will kill the wicked. 5Righteousness will be the belt around his hips, and faithfulness the belt around his waist.

In the not too distant future, Israel will again go into captivity, and the situation will be so grave, that The ETERNAL calls it 'the time of Jacob's trouble'. But The ETERNAL CREATOR promises to gather them up, and return them to the land that He gave to their fathers, and no longer will they serve the nations. From then on, they will serve only the ETERNAL their CREATOR, and David, who was raised up from his grave, to be their king:

(Jeremiah 30:3) (KJ21) For lo, the days come, saith the ETERNAL, that I will bring back from captivity My people Israel and Judah, saith the ETERNAL; and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.

(Jeremiah 30:7-8) (KJ21) 7Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it. It is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he [Israel] shall be saved out of it. 8For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the ETERNAL of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more be served by him [Israel].

(Jeremiah 30:9) (KJ21) But they shall serve the ETERNAL their CREATOR, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.

The ETERNAL will severely judge the shepherds who have abused The Children Of Israel by misleading, and exploiting the people in their care. The end of days will be secure for the people, with David at the helm to feed [teach] them, for those who seize the truth and practice it.

(Ezekiel 34:22-25) (CEB) 22But I will rescue my flock so that they will never again be prey. I will even judge between the sheep! 23I will appoint for them a single shepherd, and he will feed them. My servant David will feed them. He will be their shepherd. 24I, the ETERNAL, will be their SOVEREIGN, and My servant David will be their prince. I, the ETERNAL, have spoken. 25I will make a covenant of peace for them, and I will banish the wild animals from the land. Then they will safely live in the desert and sleep in the forest.

Today's Hebrews, those of us being called out now to make a stand for the ETERNAL's Laws, Feasts, and Ordinances, have these wonderful assurances. But, you will have to decide, if you will heed the CREATOR of the Universe, and put into practice His way of life, or if you will follow the lost cause of your Christian, Jewish, Muslim etc. pagan beliefs, and continue to do what the majority of people around you are doing.

It is a simple choice, but The ETERNAL knows it's not an easy choice. Why? Because you have to stand against the tide, which The ETERNAL knows, will require all of your strength, and all of your might. But, The ETERNAL CREATOR promises to greatly reward you for those efforts. And when you take that stand, and sincerely ask for His help, you know He will give it. So, what is that great reward? That you can become His sons and daughters and live with Him, as members of His Holy kingdom of priests, the nation of Israel forever!:

(Ezekiel 37:21-26) (CEB) 21speak to them, This is what the ETERNAL CREATOR says: I will take the Israelites from among the nations where they've gone, I will gather them from all around, and I will bring them to their fertile land. 22I will make them into a single nation in the land on Israel's highlands. There will be just one king for all of them. 23They will no longer be two nations, and they will no longer be divided into two kingdoms. They will no longer defile themselves with their idols or their worthless things or with any of their rebellions. I will deliver them from all the places where they sinned, and I will cleanse them. They will be my people, and I will be their SOVEREIGN. 24My servant David will be king over them. There will be just one shepherd for all of them. They will follow my case laws and carefully observe my regulations. 25They will live on the land that I gave to my servant Jacob, where their ancestors lived. They will live on it, they and their children and their grandchildren, forever. My servant David will be their prince forever. 26I will make a covenant of peace for them. It will be their covenant forever. I will grant it to them and allow them to increase. I will set my sanctuary among them forever.

Notice that it says 'I WILL make a covenant of peace for them', which is (1) still in the future, and (2) a covenant of peace, not a covenant of forgiveness, despite what the so-called [New Testament]™ would have you believe. We, the Children of Israel, must seek out the ETERNAL, and relearn the facts that we must keep the Sabbath, and not worship graven images or false idols ['gods'] who never existed, and relearn who the TRUE Mashiyach is.

Moreover, we must come to believe that there is ONLY one ETERNAL CREATOR [not 3, not 2]. Doing ALL these things, are sure signs that we have repented, and are sincerely seeking for the Ancient of Days, and the way He wants us to live. When you do that, you will be on the way to finding Him.

(Hosea 3:4-5) (ERV) 4In the same way the people of Israel will continue many days without a king or a leader. They will be without a sacrifice or a memorial stone. They will be without an ephod [graven image] or a household 'god' [false idol]. 5After this, the people of Israel will come back and look for the ETERNAL their CREATOR and for David their king. In the last days they will come to honor the ETERNAL and his goodness.

The ETERNAL made an everlasting Covenant with David. This covenant and prophecy was not fulfilled in David's lifetime, but will be at the time of his rising [standing] from the grave. All the sinners of the Children of Israel, that refuse to repent because they think they are doing no wrong, shall die by the sword. The ETERNAL will restore the tabernacle of David, as in the days of old.

(Amos 9:8-12) (AMP) 8Behold, the eyes of the ETERNAL CREATOR are upon the sinful kingdom [of Israel's ten tribes] and I will destroy it from the surface of the ground, except that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, says the ETERNAL. 9For behold, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations and cause it to move to and fro as grain is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least kernel fall upon the earth and be lost [from My sight]. 10All the sinners of My people shall die by the sword, who say, The evil shall not overtake or meet [and assail] us. 11In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David, the fallen hut or booth, and close up its breaches; and I will raise up its ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old, 12That they may possess the remnant of Edom [ancient enemies] and of all the nations that are called by My NAME, says the ETERNAL Who does this.

The ETERNAL Offers Healing.

Many people traveling along on their journey, in their search for The Mighty One, and His way of life, have become involved in what is called, 'the healing ministry'. Healing has become an industry. Multi-millionaire showmen invoke various pagan deities of 'baalism', such as individual or collective members of the triad known as 'the father, the son, and the holy spirit' and other so-called saints, claiming to bring about healing and prosperity (mainly theirs). The simplicity of the ETERNAL's teaching about healing has become distorted, abused and a deliberate means of hiding the truth.

As with most things taught by the Church of Rome and her proselytising daughters of 'Christianity', the opposite is the truth. The Hebrew Scriptures [the Tanakh], does not record ANY individuals who had a 'healing ministry'. Healing happened for very specific reasons, and no one was taken by surprise. Most people knew why they had become ill, and what steps they needed to take, to seek healing. The first major step is always to have a repentant, contrite, and sincere heart. However, you may be required to do something, to undo a wrong you have committed as the following example shows:

(Genesis 20:15-18)[13] (AMP) 15So Abimelech said, Behold, my land is before you; settle wherever you please. 16Then to Sarah he said, Look, I have given this brother of yours a thousand pieces of silver; it is to compensate you [for all that has happened] and to vindicate your honor before all who are with you; before all men you are cleared and compensated. 17So Abraham prayed to the ETERNAL, and the ETERNAL healed Abimelech and his wife and his maids, and they again gave birth to children, 18for the ETERNAL had securely closed the wombs of all [the women] in Abimelech's household because of Sarah, Abraham's wife.

On other occasions not only was it necessary to repent and seek the forgiveness of the injured party, but also there was a penalty to be paid. You do not just 'get away' with it as the next Scripture shows:

(Numbers 12:10-15) (CEB) 10When the cloud went away from over the tent, Miriam suddenly developed a skin disease [leprosy] flaky like snow. Aaron turned toward Miriam and saw her skin disease. 11Then Aaron said to Moses, Oh, my master, please don't punish us for the sin that we foolishly committed. 12Please don't let her be like the stillborn, whose flesh is half eaten as it comes out of the mother's womb. 13So Moses cried to the ETERNAL, 'please heal her'! 14The ETERNAL said to Moses, If her father had spit in her face, would she not be shamed for seven days? Let her be shut out of the camp for seven days, and afterward she will be brought back. 15So they shut Miriam out of the camp seven days. And the people didn't march until Miriam was brought back.

The ETERNAL CREATOR makes it abundantly clear that, He Alone is the ONE, who has the power to heal. And He does not share His power, glory, or the praise He deserves to anyone, most especially with the imaginary self-proclaimed 'son-of-god', the so-called 'savior' of the triad of 'baalism':

(Deuteronomy 32:39) (AMP) See now that I, I am He, And there is no CREATOR beside Me; It is I who put to death and I who give life. I have wounded and it is I who heal, And there is no one who can deliver from [the power of] My hand.

(Isaiah 42:8) (NOG) I am Yahweh; that is my name. I will not give my glory to anyone else or the praise I deserve to idols.

Followers of other religions also knew the power of the ETERNAL. In the following excerpt from the Hebrew Scriptures [Tanakh], we also see the need for a guilt offering which was to do two things; First, it would enable the ETERNAL to heal, and Second, it would give an understanding of why we had been afflicted in the first place. This is an important point because the ETERNAL does not simply afflict us (or allow us to be afflicted), there is a reason, and we are to seek that reason. It is not always a personal failing, as many of the illnesses during the Exodus were a corporate punishment:

(1 Samuel 6:2-3) (ESVUK) 2And the Philistines called for the priests and the diviners and said, What shall we do with the ark of the ETERNAL? Tell us with what we shall send it to its place. 3They said, If you send away the ark of the SOVEREIGN of Israel, do not send it empty, but by all means return him a guilt offering. Then you will be healed, and it will be known to you why his hand does not turn away from you.

As mentioned a few paragraphs back, The ETERNAL Alone is the ONE, who has the power to heal. Another very important aspect of healing is the spoken word. You will remember that the CREATOR spoke the whole process of creation into being. First we will visit the city of Jericho and look in on Elisha, the son of Elijah. Some men from the city came and spoke with Elisha concerning the water problem they were having:

(2 Kings 2:19-22) (AMP) 19Then the men of the city said to Elisha, Look, this city is in a pleasant place, as my lord [Elisha] sees; but the water is bad and the land is barren. 20He said, Bring me a new jar, and put salt in it. So they brought it to him. 21Then Elisha went to the spring of water and threw the salt in it and said, Thus says the ETERNAL: I [not the salt] have purified and healed these waters; there shall no longer be death or barrenness because of it. 22So the waters have been purified to this day, in accordance with the word spoken by Elisha.

The other side of the coin, so to speak, is that The ETERNAL can kill and make alive, wound and heal as He sees fit. This is especially true when it comes to mocking His word, or His prophets. How often do we speak circumstances into our lives that are not what we wish to experience? Continuing to read past this passage you will see the story of some children who insult Elisha and he speaks a curse on them which causes forty-two of them to die. Words have power:

(2 Kings 2:23-25) (AMP) 23Then Elisha went up from Jericho to Bethel. On the way, young boys came out of the city and mocked him and said to him, Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead! 24When he turned around and looked at them, he cursed them in the name of the ETERNAL. Then two female bears came out of the woods and tore to pieces forty-two of the boys. 25Elisha went from there to Mount Carmel, and from there he returned to Samaria.

In another instance, King Ahaziah sent a captain and 50 soldiers out to bring Elijah down to see him. As is typical of men of power, the captain ordered Elijah to come with them. Again, knowingly disrespecting a prophet of the ETERNAL, can have deadly consequences:

(2 Kings 1:9-15) (AMP) 9Then the King sent to Elijah a captain of fifty with his fifty [fighting men to seize the prophet]. And he went up to him, and behold, he was sitting on the top of a hill. And the captain said to him, man of the ETERNAL, the King says, Come down. 10Elijah replied to the captain of fifty, So if I am a man of the ETERNAL, then let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty [fighting men]. Then fire fell from heaven and consumed him and his fifty. 11So King Ahaziah again sent to him another captain of fifty with his fifty [fighting men]. And he said to him, man of the ETERNAL, thus says the King, Come down quickly. 12Elijah answered them, If I am a man of the ETERNAL, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty [fighting men]. And the fire of the ETERNAL came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty. 13So Ahaziah again sent a captain of a third fifty with his fifty [fighting men]. And the third captain of fifty went up and came bowed down on his knees before Elijah, and begged him [for compassion] and said to him, O man of the ETERNAL, please let my life and the lives of your servants, these fifty, be precious in your sight. 14Behold, fire came down from heaven and consumed the first two captains of fifty with their fifties; but now let my life be precious in your sight. 15The angel of the ETERNAL said to Elijah, Go down with him; do not be afraid of him. So he stood and went down with him to the King.

Another very encouraging matter is that The ETERNAL will change His mind, for His own reasons. He asks us, to put Him in remembrance of His words, and you can only do that if you are studying His Word, and know what He says. In this next passage, we see that Isaiah reveals the truth to Hezekiah. Hezekiah confronts the ETERNAL who changes His mind. Isaiah has not even left the building before he is sent back to reveal the coming healing to Hezekiah:

(2 Kings 20:1-6) (CEB) 1Around that same time, Hezekiah became deathly ill. The prophet Isaiah, Amoz's son, came to him and said, This is what the ETERNAL says: Put your affairs in order because you are about to die. You won't survive this. 2Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the ETERNAL, saying, 3Please, SOVEREIGN, remember how I have walked before you in truth and sincerity. I have done what is right in your eyes. Then Hezekiah cried and cried. 4Isaiah hadn't even left the middle courtyard of the palace when the ETERNAL's word came to him: 5Turn around. Say to Hezekiah, my people's leader: This is what the ETERNAL, the SOVEREIGN of your ancestor David, says: I have heard your prayer and have seen your tears. So now I'm going to heal you. Three days from now you will be able to go up to the ETERNAL's temple. 6I will add fifteen years to your life. I will rescue you and this city from the power of the Assyian king. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.

The ETERNAL did change His mind, to protect the city, and for His and David's sake. There was a reason for The ETERNAL CREATOR to change His mind, but Hezekiah had to first pray the prayer, remind The ETERNAL why he should be forgiven, and with his sincerely shed tears, ask for healing. The healing that comes because of our repentance is not only for ourselves, it is for His treasured possession, His people, The Children Of Israel, His future kingdom of priests, a holy nation unto Himself. (Exodus 19:3-7).

We all have a need to repent. Every day we will have said, done, or thought something that requires our repentance. It is a wonderful thing that the CREATOR of the Universe takes time out to listen to and respond to our repentance with His forgiveness. But first we must open our eyes, our ears, and our minds and learn about Him, and His ways, before we can even begin to recognize that we need to repent. Once we see ourselves for what we are, and what we have done to Him, either knowingly or unknowingly, we need to offer Him our deepest heartfelt repentance, backed up with a contrite, humble, and sincere heart. And He promises when you do that, He WILL heal you!

(Isaiah 6:9-10) (GNT) 9So he [ETERNAL] told me [Moses] to go and give the people this message: No matter how much you listen, you will not understand. No matter how much you look, you will not know what is happening. 10Then he said to me, Make the minds of these people dull, their ears deaf, and their eyes blind, so that they cannot see or hear or understand. If they did, they might turn to me and be healed.

(Isaiah 57:17-19) (DRA) 17For the iniquity of his [Israel's] covetousness I [ETERNAL] was angry, and I struck him: I hid my face from thee, and was angry: and he went away wandering in his own heart. 18I saw his ways, and I healed him, and brought him back, and restored comforts to him, and to them that mourn for him. 19I created the fruit of the lips, peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, said the ETERNAL, and I healed him.

Everything we need to know about healing is in the Hebrew Scriptures. We particularly need to know that our healing will come out of our own personal relationship with The ETERNAL. You do not need anyone else to intercede on your behalf. You are chosen, or else you would not be reading this and therefore, The ETERNAL wants to participate in your life for the good.

(Hosea 6:1-3) (CEV) 1Let's return to the ETERNAL. He has torn us to shreds, but he will bandage our wounds and make us well. 2In two or three days he will heal us and restore our strength that we may live with him. 3Let's do our best to know the ETERNAL. His coming is as certain as the morning sun; he will refresh us like rain renewing the earth in the springtime.

The ETERNAL CREATOR of the universe, wants to forgive you, He implores you to humble yourself, pray, and seek Him out, and return to Him. But we must turn from our evil ways, and follow His way of life so that He can forgive us and heal us. This message is to His people of the 'Lost Tribes Of Israel', who are called by His name, 'The Mighty One Of Israel'.

(2 Chronicles 7:14) (NOG) However, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves, pray, search for me, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear their prayer from heaven, forgive their sins, and heal their country.

The ETERNAL CREATOR of the heavens, and of the earth, has a closing message for all of those who are sincerely seeking to find Him. It is a message of truth, encouragement, and salvation. But it is also a message of warning and foreboding. Here, in a few short words, is the sum total of the CREATOR's message:

(Isaiah 45:18-25) (KJ21) 18For thus saith the CREATOR that created the heavens, the ETERNAL Himself that formed the earth and made it, He hath established it, He created it not in vain, He formed it to be inhabited: I am the ETERNAL, and there is none else. 19I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth; I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye Me in vain. I, the ETERNAL, speak righteousness; I declare things that are right. 20Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations. They have no knowledge, who set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a 'god' that cannot save. 21Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together. Who hath declared this from ancient time? Who hath told it from that time? Have not I, the ETERNAL? And there is no SOVEREIGN else besides Me, a just SOVEREIGN and a Savior. There is none besides Me. 22Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am the ETERNAL, and there is none else. 23I have sworn by Myself; the word is gone out of My mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, that unto Me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. 24Surely, shall one say, In the ETERNAL have I righteousness and strength. Even to Him shall men come, and all that are incensed against Him shall be ashamed. 25In the ETERNAL shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.

So now, Dear Friend; This is where the rubber meets the road. You have two choices of whom you will follow. Because The ETERNAL CREATOR loves you, He wants you to live a long, happy, healthy life. To this end, He has given you His 'Sword Of Truth', the 'Sword Of The Hebrews'. You now have in your possession, the only tool you need, to carve out your path in life.

The question is: will you use His 'Sword Of Truth' to your benefit, by following the path of righteousness, truth, and life, or will you fall on it mortally wounded, as you continue down the hazardous, rocky, frozen road of false prophets, landing on the heap of dead idols at the end of death's path? In the end it's all up to you. The 'Sword Of The Hebrews' has been placed in your hands, to wield as you see fit. Who's side will you join?

Again, The ETERNAL does nothing in secret, nor in the dark. He is clear, concise, and exact in all the words He speaks. He speaks in righteousness; declaring things that are right. Nothing He says is ever ambiguous, unlike the Mumbo-Jumbo of a certain false prophet who speak in riddles and parables. The ETERNAL is the only savior; look to Him and be saved. Do not look to graven images nailed on wood for salvation; they can not save you, for they are dead. There is only one CREATOR, and there is none else, and it is to the CREATOR that every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall swear, despite the false claims to the contrary, of the false 'savior of mankind', from the equally false [New Testament]™ book of deception.

[1] Unless otherwise noted all Scriptures quoted are from the Tanakh 1985. If you are using an Old Testament there may be one or two verse numbering variations in the passages mentioned. We use the ETERNAL or CREATOR instead of the words HaShem or "God." respectively.

[2] HaShem means "The Name" and is used to substitute for the ETERNAL's Name by those who feel that our CREATOR's Name should not be uttered. Another gimmick to keep from pronouncing it is to misspell it as in "Elokim" or leave the vowels out as in "L-rd" or "G-d."

In the Hebrew Scriptures our CREATOR tells us to call upon His Name, which in Modern Hebrew is YHWH (Yod-He-Waw-He), and it means "The Eternal One" or simply the ETERNAL. In the older Paleo Hebrew, (YHWH) is translated into English as Yahweh. The Orthodox Jews use YHVH, which some Bibles and Christian sects erroneously translate as "Jehovah". I prefer the older (proper) rendition of YHWH in use by the Hebrews, before being taken captive in Babylon. Therefore, I like to use the ETERNAL, which simply means "The Eternal One".

Moreover, The CREATOR tells us to "LET HIS NAME BE ON OUR LIPS and in our minds and hearts" (Psalms 91:14). So what has humankind done? Just the opposite, no one even knows how many vowels go with the four consonants of the Name, much less which ones and how it should be pronounced. This change occurred while the Jewish people were in Babylonian captivity.

When in captivity in Babylon the Jewish people learned certain practices from their heathen captors. One of these items was the practice of "ineffability." This was the practice of not speaking the name of your mighty one in an effort to avoid making him angry. After adopting this practice, the Jewish scribes removed the name YHWH (Yod-Hey-Waw-Hey), and it disappeared some 6813 times from the Hebrew Scriptures and was replaced by "Adonai." This Babylonian substitution was justified by saying that the name YHWH (Yod-Hey-Waw-Hey) was so reverent that it just could not be spoken. Eventually, "Adonai" was replaced with "HaShem" (the Name). The English "Bibles" have put "the LORD" in all of those 6813 places. (adapted from K. Laymon)

The basic meaning or translation of the Tetragrammaton (the four constants the ETERNAL) is the "Ever Living One" or simply "ETERNAL." Since the original sound has been lost and cannot be transliterated into English, then the translation of the meaning of the Name is as close to the original as we can get, until the advent of the Mashiyach and the Prophet to tell us what it was originally. Until then, We refuse to guess as to how His Righteous Name might sound. We would rather speak the meaning of the Name which is "the ETERNAL" than to use a made up or pretend name. Incidentally, the ETERNAL is the translation of the meaning of His Name, and IS NOT a title.

Notice He originally told Moses what His name was:

(Exodus 3:13-15) 13And Moses said unto the ETERNAL, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The SOVEREIGN of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? 14And the ETERNAL said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am (Strong's H1961) hath sent me unto you. 15And the ETERNAL said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the ETERNAL SOVEREIGN (Strong's H3068 ) of your fathers, the SOVEREIGN of Abraham, the SOVEREIGN of Isaac, and the SOVEREIGN of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

Therefore, we will use the words Almighty, CREATOR, ETERNAL, Mighty One, or SOVEREIGN in place of the words 'God', 'Lord', 'Elohim' or 'El', when refering to the ONE and ONLY, ETERNAL CREATOR and SOVEREIGN of the universe. (Isaiah 44:6, Isaiah 44:24):

(Isaiah 44:6) (CEB) The ETERNAL, Israel's king and redeemer, the SOVEREIGN of heavenly forces, says: I am the first, and I am the last, and besides me there are NO 'gods'.

(Isaiah 44:24) (AMP) Thus says the ETERNAL, your Redeemer, and He Who formed you from the womb: I am the CREATOR, Who made all things, Who alone stretched out the heavens, Who spread out the earth by Myself.

[4] The blood of the sacrifices in ancient Israel did not forgive sin, nor will it ever will. The sacrifices and thus the Day of Atonement only serve to impress the seriousness of our sin before our CREATOR. The thing that forgives sin is a broken-hearted repentant attitude with a humble and contrite heart. Under those conditions, if we ask the ETERNAL for forgiveness - then He will grant it as He did to King David as in Psalms 51.

[5] (Deuteronomy 6:4-5) "Hear, O Israel: the ETERNAL our SOVEREIGN the ETERNAL is one! You shall love the ETERNAL your SOVEREIGN with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.

[6] The image could have been sculpted, carved, engraved, or cast (which is the definition of graven). In any event, it could be a cross of wood with an image of a dead man hanging on it.

[7] See (Deuteronomy 32:4; 2 Samuel 22:2-3; Isaiah 44:5-8; Habakkuk 1:12).

[8] Sacrificial animals were to be unblemished - so a beaten, whipped, and circumcised individual could not be acceptable, further all first-born children and animals were automatically the ETERNAL's and could not be sacrificed. See the article "Does Israel's CREATOR Require Blood to Atone for Sin?"

[9] See (Psalms 34:18; Psalms 51:17; Isaiah 57:15; Isaiah 66:2).

[10] Holman Dictionary for Windows, version. 1.0. "MESSIAH (Mehs si' uh) Transliteration of Hebrew word [Mashiyach maw-shee'-akh] meaning, "anointed one" that was translated into Greek as Christos. ... Since apostolic times the name 'Christ' has become the proper name of 'Jesus,' the Person whom Christians recognize as the 'God'-given Redeemer of Israel and the church's 'Lord'. 'Christ' or MESSIAH is therefore a name admirably suited to express both the church's link with Israel through the Old Testament....". Thus, we would rather use the word Mashiyach rather than Messiah since word Messiah is a Greek word and is more closely associated with the man from Galilee who is no god.

[11] See the essay: "Quest for the Messiah".

[12] See the essay: "Quest for the Messiah" for a full explanation of Psalms 110.

[13] Scriptures are from Artscroll Series/Stone Edition Tanakh 1996.

[14] Editor's Note: The English word "orifice" comes from the Hebrew word "rechem" (rekh'-em) #H7358. Strong's states it means the womb and is comparable with "racham" (rakh'-am) #H7356 which has sometimes been translated in the KJV as bowels. Gesenius' states it means "inner parts." Thus, the Stone's translation as "orifice" better fits with the context because it states that Abimelech was also healed and he did not have a "womb." In the past I have wondered about Abimelech being healed and that if the wombs were shut, it would take several months for the folks to realize there was no impregnating happening. However, it would attract Abimelech's immediate and undivided attention if his and the other folks "orifices" were closed because there would no way for them to relieve themselves. This incident shows the great sense of justice and humor that the ETERNAL CREATOR has. Since Abimelech was trying to penetrate Sarah's womb orifice, I cannot think of a punishment more suitable to the crime, than to have ALL orifices shut up tight immediately, his and the other folks. Also, notice that when Abraham prayed the folks were "relieved."
