... a light for the revelation of the Gentiles.
And a glory to your people Israel.

Business | Money | Income
YAH took everything –everything- from me and taught me to trust HIM – only HIM!
When trying to re-establish my business/Income; I was told “NO”.
I was taught that even the smallest need is to be taken to YAH
7 Sivan 5778 (5/21/18)
We were blessed by YAH with this house ("A House You Can't Afford") ; and prayerfully by HIS love, we create a home. As you can tell by the title of that page, money is required to be carefully managed. We are blessed in so many ways! I personally was blessed with the gift of a used high end Craftsman lawnmower. The statement with the gift was something to the effect: “This yard is too big for the push reel lawnmower that YAH gave you for the former postage stamp yard at the rental condo.” (Go In -- There!) The only thing missing was the rear grass catching bag. No problem. I’ll just rake, which I gladly did. Summer 2016; it was all new, and besides raking revealed all sorts of buried twigs and leaves. Summer 2017, raking became an unneeded task and a drain on my time. I started looking for a used rear grass catching bag.
Having for 31 years, owned a house with two acres to care for; lawnmowers and grass catchers are far from unknown. Craftsman was my favorite, simply because the quality is high, the price is low and parts are easy to find – except now. For all of 2017 I kept raking and looking for that grass catcher. Sure I could have gone out and purchased the exact part for $100.; but that price is hugely unacceptably! I kept raking through all of 2017.
The 2018 grass cutting season is upon us. With the very first cut and rake, I was bound and determined to find that grass catcher. Sears shut down the closest store so that was out of the question. Internet searches off and on for two days yielded nothing used, and the only option new was $93, still too high. Today, early Monday morning, 7 Sivan 5778 (5/21/18), I remember Scripture and my own words which I am not heeding “even the smallest need is to be taken to YAH in prayer” This morning, in morning prayer as I placed this need before YAH, I clearly heard -The-VOICE-
When prayer was finished I went straight to eBay and within three minutes found exactly what I was looking for, brand new with a cost of $44.77 and shipping 16.77, ($61.54) with the ability to “Make an offer”. My first thought was: “Why all the 7s?” My second thought was, “After two days of looking, how did I miss this?” I immediately made an offer, and if accepted, I was obligated to purchase. I offered $35 with $17 shipping, which was accepted at $51.77. The seller left the shipping at the lower amount. I was elated that my offer was accepted because my goal was to spend near $50.
Having wrapped up the details of the purchase, I went to prayer for thanksgiving. While praying those numbers with all the “7s” floated visually through my mind. - 44.77 – 16.77 - 51.77 – 17.00 - My eyes shot open from prayer! Today is 7 Sivan 5778. Today is day 51 of the Omer count from Pesach to Shavu’ot. On Shavuot (50) (Pentecost) YAH gave the Torah to Israel. On the day AFTER Shavuot (51), as promised by Y’shua, The Ruach HaKodesh was given, and 3,000 Jews in the Temple came to faith. 7 is the number of completion. 7 – Torah. 7 – Ruach HaKodesh.
The Giving of the Ruach HaKodesh
ACTS OF THE SHLICHIM 2: (Aramaic English NT – Roth)
1.And after the (fifty) days of Shavuot (Pentecost)14 were fulfilled,15 all were assembled as one. 2. All of a sudden there was a sound from heaven like a roaring wind16 and all that House17 in which they were sitting was filled. 3. And (it) appeared to them like tongues divided, and fire sat upon every one of them. 4. And all of them were filled with the Ruach haKodesh, and they were compelled to speak in different tongues,18 just as the Spirit had given them to speak.
Note 14 The loan word pentaqostia (fiftieth day) appears here and in 1 Corinthians 16:8. Tradition has it that Luke translated for Paul, who would have used this term for the benefit of a Gentile audience. Luke’s upbringing in Syrian Antioch prepared him for toggling between Semitic and Gentile terminology. On the other hand, in Israel where the Gospels originated, Aramaic paskha, the direct cognate of pesach, was being used for “Passover” and was later loaned into Greek. Loanwords going either from Aramaic into Greek or vice versa are the effect of this time when Semitic culture was dominated by Greco-Roman power. Without loanwords, the Peshitta could not be authentic.
Note 15 This means, “after the days counting the Omer were fulfilled.” The English could be misconstrued to mean after the days of the feast itself were completed. However, Aramaic literally reads “after the days of pentaqostia were fulfilled” or, “after the 50 day period was reached.” “Pentecost” is used here as both a technical term to refer to the feast and a time marker. Also the actual day was Shabbat (Saturday) morning, not Sunday as many Christians assume. The last day of the omer count ended at sunset on Friday, May 24th in the year 30 CE, so the disciples were “assembled as one” on the following morning after Shavuot ended, when the Ruach haKodesh came.
Note 16 Or “groaning spirit.”
Note 17 “House” here refers to the Temple; see Matthew 12:4; 21:13; Luke 2:49; John 2:16, 17, not the “upper room” of 1:13. It is the Day of Shavuot; Y’shua’s disciples are gathered together in the Father’s House. Luke 24:53 states the disciples were “at all times in the temple.” The Ruach haKodesh is openly poured out in full view of those in attendance at the Temple, not in some hidden place. Y’shua was known to visit the Temple daily. In the early mornings he taught those who came to learn of the Kingdom of Elohim; see Luke 21:36-38.
Note 18 The universal remedy to the confusion of language at Bavel, Genesis 11:9, is to learn the language of the Spirit that unifies all souls in righteousness.
The VERY first time in my life that I heard –The-VOICE- was inside Mrs. Ricker’s seventh (7) grade class, Blythe, Georgia.
What I heard was-
All of my life I never understood because America always seemed to be getting stronger
Then, no more than five years ago, it was pointed out to me that The Bible was taken out of schools on 25 June 1962
The exact year, 1962, that I heard “America is declining” – while sitting in a classroom.
What would Y’shua say TODAY?
Mark 7: (Aramaic English NT – Roth)
13. And you despise the Word of Elohim, because of the tradition that you have handed down and that resemble these many things that you do.”
Hosea 4: (CJB)
“My people are destroyed for want of knowledge. Because you rejected knowledge, I will also reject you as Cohen for me. Because you forgot the Torah of your God, I will also forget your children.”
The Ten Commandments-Abridged
Traditions of Men
The ten Commandments as taught to me as a Lutheran (LCMS) pre-Theological student, Concordia College, Bronxville, NY, 1968. The course title was “Teaching Luther’s Catechism”, 3 credits; I passed and at the end of the semester quit the Seminary.
I am the Lord thy God.
Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.
Thou Shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His Name in vain.
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy
Honor thy father and mother, that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
Thou shalt not kill
Thou shalt not commit adultery
Thou shalt not steal.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant-nor his ox, nor his ass, no anything that is thy neighbor’s.
Teaching Luther’s Catechism I, 1959 Muhlenberg Press, Herbert Girgensohn, Translated by John Doberstein
The Ten Commandments
From The Hebrew Scripture
Sh'mot (Exodus) 20:1-14 (Complete Jewish Bible)
“Then God said all these words:
א “I am ADONAI your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the abode of slavery.
ב “You are to have no other gods before me. You are not to make for yourselves a carved image or any kind of representation of anything in heaven above, on the earth beneath or in the water below the shoreline. You are not to bow down to them or serve them; for I, ADONAI your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sins of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but displaying grace to the thousandth generation of those who love me and obey my mitzvot.
ג “You are not to use lightly the name of ADONAI your God, because ADONAI will not leave unpunished someone who uses his name lightly.
ד “Remember the day, Shabbat, to set it apart for God. You have six days to labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Shabbat for ADONAI your God. On it, you are not to do any kind of work — not you, your son or your daughter, not your male or female slave, not your livestock, and not the foreigner staying with you inside the gates to your property. For in six days, ADONAI made heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them; but on the seventh day he rested. This is why ADONAI blessed the day, Shabbat, and separated it for himself.
ה “Honor your father and mother, so that you may live long in the land which ADONAI your God is giving you.
ו “Do not murder.
ז “Do not commit adultery.
ח “Do not steal.
ט “Do not give false evidence against your neighbor.
י “Do not covet your neighbor’s house; do not covet your neighbor’s wife, his male or female slave, his ox, his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor.” (A: vii)”
