The HOLY SPIRIT: 42 Degrees, a Turning Point To See Rainbows

Besides the significance of the number 42 in the Book of Matthew/Mattityahu 1, please see this recent study: http://glclifestyling.com/2015/12/matthew-1-the-answer-to-the-question-is-42-not-41/, there is also a connection to the number 42 and how bows in the clouds are formed. This leads us to the HOLY SPIRIT! Please see below.

Ezekiel/Yechezk’El 1:26 And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone; and upon the likeness of the throne was a likeness as the appearance of a man upon it above. 27And I saw as the colour of electrum [other translations say glowing/gleaming metal/amber/copper/brass/bronze], as the appearance of fire round about enclosing it, from the appearance of his loins and upward; and from the appearance of his loins and downward I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and there was brightness round about him. 28As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spoke. Continue reading

The Du Tillet Matthew: is it the correct one?

The previous study, where I first brought up about the du Tillet Hebrew Matthew/Mattityahu, included information that looked at the possibility of our present Gospel of Matthew being from a scroll written with errors in it. See link to previous study below:

Matthew 1: The answer to the question is 42 not 41!

I did a search on the du Tillet and found a couple of sites that had researched and presented their information on that manuscript, links will be included below. One site also had available in pdf an old book written and published about the du Tillet including translation in English called, “An Old Hebrew Text of St. Matthew’s Gospel” by Hugh Schonfield 1927. Link and quote from the book are below.

http://www.torahresource.com/DuTillet/Schonfield.pdf

“When we turn to the New Testament we find that there are reasons for suspecting a Hebrew or Aramaic original for the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and John, and for the Apocalypse.”, from Preface page vii. On the next page, Schonfield goes into information that states he believes the canonical Gospel to be an abridged edition of a larger original work with even more information then we have today of CHRIST and HIS saying and of which only fragments have survived. He further states that he believes the Judaean Christians were going to use it as the last book of the Old Testament canon. It has been referred to by the names “The Gospel”, “The Gospel of the Lord”, “The Gospel of the Twelve, or, of the Apostles”, “The Gospel of the Hebrews”, and “The Hebrew Matthew”. He believed the original to be in Hebrew and possibly Aramaic and that the Greek renderings were from it and could be proven as such. When I was in Israel I met a scholar who stated that he believed the Greek to be secondary to the Aramaic. I found out there is an Aramaic vs Greek primacy dispute between Eastern and Western scholars in regards to the original New Testament manuscripts.

In “Caesar and Christ” by Will Durant, on page 616 is this paragraph which backs up what Schonfield said above:

“The literature of Christianity in the second century abounded in gospels epistles, apocalypses, and “acts.” Christians differed widely in accepting or rejecting these as authoritative expressions of the Christian creed. The Western churches accepted the Book of Revelation, the Eastern churches generally rejected it; these accepted the Gospel according to the Hebrews and the Epistles of James, the Western churches discarded them. Clement of Alexandria quotes as sacred scripture a late first-century treatise, The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles. Marcion’s publication of a New Testament forced the hand of the Church. We do not know when the books of our present New Testament were determined as canonical-i.e., as authentic and inspired;; we can only say that a Latin fragment discovered by Muratori in 1740, named after him, and generally assigned to ca.180, assumes that the canon had by that time been fixed.”

On page 556 Durant says, “Orthodox tradition placed Matthew’s Gospel first. Irenaeus describes it as originally composed in “Hebrew”-i.e., Aramaic; but it has come down to us only in Greek.” This agrees with what is stated in the preface of the “Holy Bible: Ancient Eastern Text” by George Lamsa:

With reference to….the originality of the Peshitta text, as the Patriarch and Head of the Holy Apostolic and Catholic Church of the East, we wish to state, that the Church of the East received the scriptures from the hands of the blessed Apostles themselves in the Aramaic original, the language spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and that the Peshitta is the text of the Church of the East which has come down from the Biblical times without any change or revision.”

Who is the bright and morning star of Revelation 22:16?

Revelation 22:16  “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you about these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.”

Daniel [Dani’el] 12:3And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.

Based on examining what looks to be all verses concerning “morning stars”, I believe that it is mainly a special designation for a “bright” person who “shines” and “sparkles like a star” turning others to righteousness, and also is used for certain angels/messengers/hosts. I also believe that King David is the “bright and morning star” referred to in Revelation 22:16, not JESUS/YESHUA. Please examine the Scriptures below and the comments with them. Continue reading

May you find yourself asking questions and seeking the answers through prayer, asking ELOHIM for ONLY the Truth, and Biblical study/research! ELOHIM is the Hebrew word for GOD and who I believe is our ABBA [FATHER] in Heaven, HIS SON [YAHSHUA/JESUS/JOSHUA], and HIS [SET-APART] HOLY SPIRIT/RUACH HA’KODESH.

It is important to go to our ABBA in Heaven for everything through HIS SON, the MESSIAH [CHRIST] and only INTERCESSOR, and not go by our own understanding [Mattityahu/Matthew 6:9, 1 Yochanan /1 John 2:1, Mishlei/Proverbs 3:5-7]. I have been seeking ELOHIM’S FACE [wanting HIM and to know how HE is doing] and am going back to the roots of Scripture to gain a deeper understanding from the original languages and root words. Jeffery Benner who created the Ancient Hebrew Research Center looks into parent roots of words, the original root of where a word comes from. I have used this and found it to be enlightening, getting into a deeper understanding of a word and a truer one too. I also have been researching by looking at every Scripture a word is in to make sure a theory bears out. Everything in Scripture, both Old and New Testament, need to fit together. It is a puzzle that reveals hidden things. If it does not work, that indicates a problem of either a translation/transliteration error or could even mean that something does not belong. More about that later.

In order to walk the MESSIAH’S WAY:
1. Learn how to obey [if you love ME you will obey/keep MY commands] and follow our SHEPHERD and prepare for our coming KING how HE would love!
2. Go by HIS ABBA’S/FATHER’S Will and not your own!
3. Learn how to be taught and comforted by the HOLY SPIRIT!

Having given my life to our FATHER in Heaven to do YAHSHUA’S work, I hope to be going wherever my SHEPHERD wants me to follow HIM and doing whatever our FATHER in Heaven lines up for me and prepares through the HOLY SPIRIT! [John/Yochanan 10:11 and Tehillim/Psalm 23].

Obelisks as monuments [matzevot] – the curses of Egypt are upon us!

From the links below, it looks like matzevot are used as monuments and an obelisk is one form it can take. Considering the numerous verses where ELOHIM is clear that anything pagan separates HIM from HIS people and HE commanded to be the only ONE worshiped by them, it is sad that many today [Christians and Jews] do not realize what they are embracing since the obelisk was specifically for a pagan deity, the sun god.

A Song to my BELOVED ONE…

I wrote this song based on many verses in Scripture including some I found after I wrote the words. This is what I hope to be for ELOHIM because of all HE has done for me, especially YAHSHUA who my Covenant is with. I feel blessed because I have had things line up around me and things that have come from my heart that I found Scripture on afterwards or confirmation from others’ walks. Some I did not go through with and regretted and wept for missing an opportunity placed in front of me because I doubted/feared/was weak. ELOHIM [Hebrew word for GOD and who I believe is FATHER/SON/SPIRIT] is an amazing path preparer through HIS SET-APART [HOLY] SPIRIT. I have had so many paths line up in a day that I have exclaimed to ELOHIM more than once, “I know you are ELOHIM but how do you do it!!!”. Continue reading

The Wedding Garment is our Righteousness…how ready are you for CHRIST’S return?

If YAHSHUA/JESUS/JOSHUA returned during your lifetime, would you be ready, especially if it was sooner rather than later? Would you be a virgin with extra oil who got to go in with the BRIDEGROOM or a foolish one locked outside the door? Would you be a servant who used his MASTER’S talents well or would you be scared/lazy and hide it? Would you be a guest with a wedding garment on or one that did not put one on and was thrown outside? HE said to always be ready, so are you? Are you blemish/defect, stain/spot, and wrinkle free [Ephesians 5:27] and clean vs unclean? Are you righteous? Continue reading

What do the FATHER [ANCIENT of DAYS], HIS SON [WORD, LAMB, MESSIAH], and HIS SET-APART [HOLY] SPIRIT look like? – Part 2

Part 1, went into the background of images and why we are commanded not to make or worship them. It also got into the information available in Scripture about how the MESSIAH [CHRIST] looked while in HIS Body of flesh. See this link: http://glclifestyling.com/2013/05/30/what-do-the-fatherancient-of-days-his-sonwordlambmessiah-and-his-set-apart-holy-spirit-look-like-part-1/

So for part 2, what did/does the SON/MESSIAH look like as the WORD of ELOHIM? ELOHIM is the Hebrew word for GOD and who I believe is FATHER, SON, SET-APART [HOLY] SPIRIT [BREATH/RUACH]. There is a physical description in Dani’el of a MAN that Dani’el worshiped [fell down on his face in front of] that matches up with a physical description of one resembling [looking like] the SON of Adam/SON of Man [the first man, Adam, his name means “man” or “human” in the generic sense] in Revelation. I believe this MAN is the WORD of ELOHIM, our MESSIAH, who was born in a Body of flesh. I believe the description of what HE looks like, both before and after HE was in the flesh, is in both Dani’el and Revelation. Continue reading

Texas abortion bill, let’s get our FATHER in Heaven’s attention by thanking, praising, and blessing HIS NAME!

Look’s like the bill will come up again for a vote on Tuesday, July 9th unless something changes. Instead of doing another “fast and prayer”, wanted to try something different to get our FATHER [ABBA] in Heaven’s attention. So let us “thank HIM, praise HIM, and bless HIS name” and ask for HIS Will to be done!

There are some examples of this in verses at the bottom of this study. Try singing them to HIM or write your own and sing them. Also, if you have never bowed/knelt/prostrated yourself to HIM why are you waiting to bring joy to HIS heart? We will all be doing this when we are with HIM forever, so why not start now and teach others? What a wonderful gift you would be giving HIM! If you have never done it before, what a great way to get HIS attention! I also will be thanking, praising, and blessing the NAME of HIS SON, our MESSIAH [CHRIST] and KING! Continue reading

What do the FATHER/ANCIENT OF DAYS, HIS SON/WORD/MESSIAH, and HIS SET-APART [HOLY] SPIRIT look like? – part 1

I believe there is a huge problem going on that has caused sin in peoples lives for centuries. It is because of our disobedience and wanting the wide way [which is the path of destruction] and the world [satan is now the prince of this world and he deceives the world] instead of the Narrow WAY [which is the path to life] and to obey our ELOHIM [the Hebrew word for GOD and who I believe is FATHER/SON/HOLY SPIRIT] – see Mattityahu [Matthew] 7:13-14, Luke 4:5-7, Yochanan [John] 12:31 and 14:30. You love your spouse, family, friends and you can describe, if not everything, probably many things about them because of how special they are to you. How much do you know about ELOHIM? For example, what do the FATHER, SON, and the HOLY [SET-APART/QADOSH] SPIRIT [BREATH/RUACH] look like? Continue reading
