Long Long New Road--Straight As An Arrow
…do not believe all spirits; but discriminate among spirits whether they are of Elohim…
We are to submit all to YAH in prayer and accordingly our life is to be led by YAH’s Word and The Ruach HaKodesh--no matter how small or no matter how large. YAH places a man and a woman together in marriage for HIS purpose. They become one to serve HIM. I am led by The Ruach to share the following three events---for what reason, I have no idea, except for obedience! I beg in prayer--This is too private! For six months I have prayed that this must be my idea and not the leading of the Ruach. The Ruach speaks but we must be careful, so does evil. That’s why we “test the spirits” (1 John 4:1-3). In the last three weeks events have occurred, that others would might consider “coincidence”; but I see as “supernatural moves of the Ruach” to guide us all. Praise YAH!
FIRST LETTER OF YOCHANAN Chapter 4 (Aramaic English NT)
1. My beloved, do not believe all spirits; but discriminate among spirits whether they are of Elohim: for many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2. By this the Spirit of Elohim is known; every spirit that confesses that Y’shua the Mashiyach has come in the flesh14 is of Elohim. 3. And every spirit which does not confess that Y’shua the Mashiyach has come in the flesh is not of Elohim; but he is of the false Messiah of whom you have heard that he comes and now is he already in the world.
Note 14: The Spirit of Mashiyach dwells inside a person. This does not refer to Y’shua coming in his flesh to Earth; even the demons know that much (see Luke 4:41). This refers to the neshama (spirit of man) being born from the beginning into the Image of Elohim, which is evidenced by living a Set Apart life unto YHWH, having Torah written upon the heart and growing in the Attributes of Mashiyach as revealed in Isaiah 11:2 and elsewhere.
Long Long New Road--Straight As An Arrow
…we are together traveling a brand new road that we have NEVER before traveled…
13 Shevat 5772 (02/06/12)
On either 06 or 07 February, -My future wife- and I were praying and I had a vision that stopped prayer. What was seen that evening was seen in our prayer every evening as I was in Des Moines, Iowa and is always to this day seen and is instructive. Every few evenings there was a new addition with details slowly revealed one by one.
In the vision I am hundreds of feet in the air and see below me the shiny black ribbon of a finished brand new road. Not one person has walked on it. No one vehicle of any sort has driven on it. It stretches out as far as the eye can see which in this flat desert seems to be a million miles. It turns neither to the right or left. There are no hills so it travels neither up nor down. It looks like a black arrow into the far far distance future. Slowly I am lowered and stand on the road. I wonder why I am allowed to go where no other person has walked or driven. This is a finished road with center stripe and all. Why no traffic? Why no people? Then I look closer. The center stripe is unique. It is twice the normal width. It is pure white. I look around in complete shock. A beautiful new road, unique double wide strip, stretching into forever and I am the first to walk or ride on it. Why? With that the vision, still a puzzle, ends prayers continue.
Over the weeks, to my stunned amazement, one small detail at a time is added. Almost each time we go to prayer something new is added.
Additions with future sessions of prayer (They are cumulative):
A. The white stripe emits a band of pure white light four feet into the air stretching forward to a figure 200 feet ahead.
B. Later we realize that the figure out front is Yeshua.
C. The white stripe stretches only from where we stand to Yeshua. Not behind us. Not ahead of Yeshua.
D. Yeshua is looking back at us motioning for us to follow.
E. The Torah and The Power of The Ruach through Yeshua is symbolized by the four foot high band of light stretching from HIM to us.
F. -My future wife- is standing to the left of the white band of light and I stand on the right. We hold hands inside the beam of pure white light.
G. The next few prayer sessions we are just standing there and Yeshua is motioning for us to follow.
H. We start walking together down the road being sustained by Yeshua through the Ruach in the white stripe.
I. Now in a third person I hover over the road and I are walking, following Yeshua. But what is the symbolism? It hits me like a brick. I stop praying and ask -My future wife- if she ever prayed in her prior marriage. No. Neither did I. So in our prior marriages, even with Believers there was no joint prayer. That explains the new road. Stunning! Yeshua is showing us that with prayer we together we are traveling a brand new road that we have NEVER before traveled. What we are doing together is going to be completely brand new with no connection to the past.
Ways that this is different
A. Deep Sustaining Prayer together.
B. No sexual contact of any sort prior to marriage.
C. Never built a relationship by phone.
D. Never followed Ruach for guidance before.
Just so, we were shown our future life.
We walk together hand in hand in the white light of Torah and The Ruach on this long new road serving YAH.
Help us to study The Word and be spiritually prepared!
Having eyes to see and ears to hear!
Send us out in Spirit and Truth!
THE GOOD NEWS ACCORDING TO YOCHANAN 4 (Aramaic English NT)
19. That woman said to him, “My Master, I see that you are a prophet. 20. Our forefathers worshipped55 in this mountain, and you say that in Urishlim is the place that it is necessary to worship. 21. Y’shua said to her, “Woman believe me, the hour is coming that not in this mountain nor in Urishlim will they worship the Father. 22. You worship something that you do not know. But we worship what we know, for life56 is from the Yehudeans. 23. But the hour is coming, and now is when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, indeed. For the Father, He seeks worshippers as these. 24. For Elohim is Spirit, and those who worship, they must worship Him in spirit and in truth.”
Note 55. Saghed literally means, “To prostrate before” or “To bow down before.” (PY).
Note 56. The word here for “Life” is plural. The last word in the sentence, Anon (here translated as ‘Is’), means “Are.” (PY). The vital element of “life” here is Eternal Life through the redemption of Mashiyach. Y’shua emphasizes this aspect of life when he contrasts it to regular life, as he contrasts regular waters with “living waters” that bring eternal life. (AR)
Breathe on us! Send us out in the Spirit of Elijah!
ACTS OF THE SHLICHIM Chapter 2: (Aramaic English NT)
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. 5. Now there were men who were living in Urishlim who feared Elohim - Jews from all nations that are under heaven.
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.
ACTS OF THE SHLICHIM Chapter 2: (Aramaic English NT)
14. Afterwards, Shimon Keefa stood up among the eleven Shlichim and lifted up his voice and said to them, “Men, Jews, and all who dwell in Urishlim. Let this be known to you, and pay attention to my words. 15. For (it is) not as you think (that) these (men) are drunk, for behold, it is now (only) until the third hour. 16. But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Yoel. 17. Elohim said, In later days20 it will be (that) I will pour out my Ruach upon all flesh, and your sons will prophesy and your daughters and your young men will see visions, and your elders will dream dreams. 18. And upon my servants and upon handmaids I will pour out my Ruach in those days. And they will prophesy. 19. And I will cause signs in heaven and mighty deeds upon the earth: blood, and fire, and columns of smoke, 20. the sun will be changed into darkness and the moon into blood before the coming of the great and awesome day of Master YHWH. 21. And it will be (that) all who call (on) the name of Master YHWH will be saved.21 22. Men, sons of Israel, listen to these words Y’shua the Nazarene, a man, who by Elohim was shown to you with miracles and with signs and with acts of power, those that Elohim did among you by his hand as you know.
Note 20: The later (last or latter) days, “acharit hayamim” in Hebrew, is the season when “the Day of YHWH” will be fulfilled. The acharit hayamim and Day of YHWH references prophecies regarding Mashiyach ben David. Shimon Keefa assumed he was witnessing the acharit hayamim since Y’shua had overtly fulfilled the prophecies of Mashiyach ben Yosef (the suffering servant), but he would have had no idea when Mashiyach would return as Mashiyach ben David to fulfill the many elements spoken of by Joel and the other Prophets of YHWH. Please see footnote on Acts 28:28
Note 21: Joel 3:1-5 (2:28-32). See Salvation in Appendix.
Send us out immersing in The NAME!
THE GOOD NEWS ACCORDING TO MATTHEW Chapter 28: (Aramaic English NT)
18. And Y’shua drew near and spoke with them and said to them, “All authority is given to me in heaven and on earth. And as my Father has sent me, I send you. 19. Go therefore, make disciples of all nations and immerse them in the name299 of the Father and of the Son and of the Ruach haKodesh. 20. And teach them to keep all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you all the days until the end of the world.300 Amen.”
Note 299: Aramaic has “name” – singular – which does not support the traditional trinity theology. Ruach haKodesh is a title for YHWH, see Isaiah 63:1-11; Psalm 51:1-11. The Son has his Father’s Name within him and the Father keeps His people in His Name; John 17:11. As a result, imagine three branches of the same tree rather than three separate trees. Each branch is united by the Name/Title of the One Divine Personality that is YHWH Elohim. This linkage is established in Shemot/ Exodus 23:20-22 where a Messenger, unlike any other “angel” can forgive sin because YHWH says, “for My Name is in Him”. All other “angels” have EL in their name but Y’shua’s Name is above the angels, hence Yah/YHWH is in Y’shua’s name (Matthew 1:21, Hebrews 1:1-5). Nazarenes have from the very beginning taught salvation in the Name of YHWH. See Immerser in Appendix.
Note 300: Or end of the age, as Aramaic alma means both. The exact meanings apply to the Greek word aion used here, making this one of the few times where an original Aramaic word is perfectly matched with the Greek.
