SERVANTS OF THE LORD WHO ARE HEAVENLY HIGH PRIESTS

aurora-green-norway

The Enoch tradition underlies some important understanding of the New Testament and some original beliefs about the Kingdom of God Take for example that the transformed angelic Enoch is known as ‘the youth’ (na’ar), which originally meant “the Servant.” The Hebraic understanding of the Servant remembers the Servant as the heavenly high priest. Therefore, the Servants of the Lord were high priests of the Most High God who entered the Holy of Holies to learn the secrets of the Kingdom. In this Kingdom Day, God’s maturing sons will follow in the High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek’s (Yeshua Messiah) footsteps, because we are one with the Servant who knows how to maintain the Almighty’s Eternal Covenant of Peace.

PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE TRUTH

horse-clouds

Each iota of the Word of God has an application for the past, present and future: “I am Alpha and Tav, the beginning and the ending says the Lord God who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty” (Revelation 1:8 Aramaic).

Even the Book of Revelation is about the past, present and future. During the author’s own time (i.e., the Apostle John), the six trumpets that mark the various stages of the battle against Rome in the War Scroll mark the stages of Israel’s involvement with Rome since Pompey entered Jerusalem in 63 BCE and defiled The Temple. According to this application of the Book of Revelation, the sixth trumpet was when Rome invaded the Jews homeland in 66 CE. The faithful were waiting for the seventh and last trumpet to herald the Kingdom.

This is an important context for the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Qumran community were literally preparing for the final battle against incarnate evil of their day – Rome. The War Scroll section of the Dead Sea Scrolls present the Essenes’ apocalyptic vision of the final battle between the Sons of Light and the Sons of Darkness.

In the Book of Revelation, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords rides out of heaven on a white horse followed by a heavenly host on white horses too. We see them fighting against the beast and the false prophet and their followers (Revelation 19:11-16). Both the Qumran Community (i.e., Essenes) and the first converts to The Way (i.e., Christians) were confident that the King of Glory and His Heavenly Host were ready to help them in their darkest hour.

“LET THERE BE LIGHT” – PROTOPLASM OF CREATION

beresheit

“Then God said, ‘Let there be light’; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.” (Genesis 1:3-4 NKJV)

“Let there be light…” is the first declaration of God’s will in Scripture, but He could not have spoke it without first creating a language to communicate His thoughts. The human need to formulate thoughts in language, with letters being the language’s building blocks, only emulates how the Lord spoke in the beginning. Before God could speak the universe into existence, He had to first create the language to speak forth His will. “…Thou didst create all things, and because of Thy will they existed, and were created” (Revelation 4:11).

A fundamental concept for Jewish mystics is that the letters of the Hebrew Alef-Bet were created first of all out of nothing but God’s desire – His divine will. They say, “By use of the letters, the Holy One, Blessed is He, created all the worlds.” Notice the hidden meaning behind the first verse in the Bible, “In the beginning God created alef- tav the heavens and the earth.” Alef being the first letter of the Hebrew Alef-Bet while tav is the last of twenty-two.

Throughout Scripture there are random references to alef-tav that have been largely disregarded when Jews read their Bible, or when Scripture has been translated into other languages, including English. So far it seems that mainly Jewish mystics have tried to delve into the reason why those random alef-tavs exist in the written word. Perhaps these scholars have overlooked the Messianic reference in Isaiah 44:6 “Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: I am the first (alef) and I am the last (tav), and there is no God besides Me.” Yeshua (Jesus) declares in Revelation 1:8, “I am the Alpha and the Omega… who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” Yeshua is the alef-tav or as He says, I AM the alef-tav, and there is no God besides Me.

The spiritual realm, where the Almighty dwells, is composed of perfection – pure thoughts and concepts – not needing to be clothed in words and letters. When Yeshua created the Hebrew Alef-Bet, He ordered spiritual forces of creation through its twenty-two sacred letters before there was even one other act of creation. The existence of everything created from people to pebbles depends upon the spiritual content with which it was created. By uttering the famous “Let there be…” words, the Word Yeshua created all of what can be classified as Creation:

“He is the image of the invisible God, the first born of all creation, for in Him all things were created, both in heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, … all things have been created through Him and for Him. And He has existed before all things, and in Him all things hold together.” (Colossians 1:15-17)

It has been a mystery to me how Yeshua “existed before all things” and was “the first born of all creation” at the same time. When one understands that the array of individual spiritual forces ordered via the Hebrew Alef-Bet were resident in Yeshua before those letters or that language was created, one can get a glimpse into the mystery of Jesus being the first born of all creation.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1). The Word is made up of letters. “In the beginning God created alef-tav…” (Genesis 1:1) The letters — these individual spiritual forces – inherent in Christ were birthed from His essential, intrinsic essence, which was originally included wholly in the Word. The first born of all creation is the very thing that constitutes every living substance. It is the protoplasm of the universe. It is the individual spiritual forces that originally belonged, and still belong, to the nature of Christ. The first born of all creation is the letters of the Word – the Hebrew Alef-Bet. Basically, Jesus’ spoken words marshaled spiritual forces that facilitated Creation according to His divine will.

Like some sort of excellent, exalted scientist, Yeshua spoke the perfect blend of spiritual forces that produces light (Genesis 1:3). Another blend produces heaven and all its fullness (Genesis 1:6) Yet another blend produces vegetation yielding seed (Genesis 1:11), and so on ad infinitum. With the words, “Let there be…” creation came into existence in a time-space continuum at that primeval instant. The words that brought creation into being remain within in them and with us every instant. He “upholds all things by the word of His power” (Hebrews 1:3). Everything continues to exist because not an instant goes by without God continuing to say, in effect, “Let there be…” in the sense that the Divine will of the original six days remain in force.

CHANUKAH DEVOTION FOR NIGHT 3:

“In the beginning God created alef- tav the heavens and the earth” (Gen 1:1). If we don’t leave out one jot or one tittle, the literal translation of Genesis 1:1 speaks of “in the beginning God created” the Hebrew Alef-Bet first.

Given the fact that the Hebrew Alef-Bet is the protoplasm of creation. Given the fact that it pre-dated the rest of creation and is the first born of all creation, the letters and their order is vitally important. The Bible says that we are the letters of the Messiah written with the Spirit of the living God on tablets of human hearts (1 Corinthians 3:2-3). Christ in us the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27) is THE source of all true light and revelation, and He resides in the heart of every believer. He is the one that enlightens a person’s heart with a message from God.

As we eagerly await His coming, Let there be light! “Arise, My people! Let your light shine for all the nations to see! For the glory of the Lord is streaming from you. All nations will come to your light” (Isaiah 60:1-3)

DISCUSSION: Please select how you’d like to involve others (there’s freedom to do whatever the Spirit leads):

[1] Share an experience of being connected to the Light and any revelation that came with it.

[2] What is written on the tablet of your heart? What do you cherish?

[3] What does the phrase “Let there be light” mean to you personally?

STEPS FOR THE BRIDE’S BAPTISM OF FIRE

Stairway to Heaven

“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know” (Jeremiah 33:3 NAS).

Through the Eternal Order of Melchizedek, the Lord will birth His “Bridal Company” in the earth, which will completely conform to the Living Word and the Spirit of Christ. Right now, a Royal Priesthood is beginning to march anew throughout the earth, as the predecessor of the Bride. These are ones who were once far off, but are, even now, being brought nearer and nearer until they literally become ONE with the Almighty, as they willingly lay down their flesh in order to receive all of Calvary’s dividends.

Let’s look at the passage that shows us the way we can be enthroned (i.e. clothed) in righteousness. Jeremiah 33:18 reveals three progressive crucifixion steps, which are spiritual sacrifices still required of God’s Holy Priesthood (1 Pet 2:5). This is the process by which Crucified Ones will hit the Father’s bull’s eye of righteousness. This is the procedure that will hone the essence of the Messiah’s Bride, so she can be named: “The Lord is our righteousness.” Just remember that His Beautiful Bride will be the embodiment of who she is married to.

” ‘Behold, days are coming,’ declares the LORD, ‘when I will fulfill the good word which I have spoken concerning the house of Israel and the house of Judah. ‘In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch of David to spring forth ; and He shall execute justice and righteousness on the earth. ‘In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will dwell in safety ; and THIS IS THE NAME BY WHICH SHE WILL BE CALLED : THE LORD IS OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.’ For thus says the LORD, ‘David shall never lack a man to sit on the throne of the house of Israel ; and the Levitical priests shall never lack a man before Me to offer burnt offerings, to burn grain offerings and to prepare sacrifices continually .’ ” (Jeremiah 33:14-18 NAS).

The crucifixion process outlined in Jeremiah 33:18, which will completely circumcise one’s sin nature is:

[1] offer burnt offerings,
[2] burn grain offerings, and
[3] prepare sacrifices continually.

These are the steps of the Baptism of Fire that His pure and spotless Bride will be required to go through, so she will be able to live and move and have her being in a continually surrendered state to do the Father’s perfect will. These transformative stages will facilitate the New Jerusalem being called: “The Lord is our righteousness” (Jer. 33:16).

Right now the Bride of Christ is hungry for righteousness. She is seeking first His Kingdom and His righteousness above all else. In a dry and thirsty land, His Bride thirsts for the refreshing, joyous life that only righteousness brings. The Water of Life that flows from His throne is imprinted with righteousness, justice, holiness and truth; and it is the Lamb of God – our Great Shepherd – that guides us to these springs of living water (Rev. 7:17).

Nehemiah 3:1 reveals that Jerusalem’s Sheep Gate needs to be repaired first. We don’t know exactly why, but we do know that it was the priest’s inheritance to make offerings by fire to the Lord. To me, this speaks of the need in our day for kings and priests to set the stage, so people can bring their offerings to the Lord. BTW – It was only at the Sheep Gate that God’s priests were sanctified with the word and prayer. These are necessary components to the Bride’s purification.

When Jerusalem’s Sheep Gate was repaired in Nehemiah’s day, Eliashib was the High Priest who led the consecration and building of God’s Holy City. This is a picture of what we need to do today to set apart His people to build His Bride (which is the Holy City, the New Jerusalem (Rev. 21:2,9)). Eliashib’s name means “The Almighty will restore.” The Ancient Hebrew Word Picture for Eliashib’s name speaks of the all-consuming work of El Shaddai done within His Body is the progressive work of the Father that moves us forward, so we can be built into His permanent dwelling place (i.e. be His Bride).

BTW – Before we go into the details for our initial step in the Bride’s Baptism of Fire, let’s understand a precedence set by God Himself when it comes to offerings made by fire. Abel was the first one to bring an “offering by fire” to the Lord. In Hebrew, the original text of Genesis 4:4 reveals that not only did Abel bring the firstborn of his flock, he also brought himself (offered his heart) while Cain only brought his offering. This is what made Abel’s sacrifice acceptable, and Cain’s not. Whenever we speak of an offering, always think of yourself first and foremost.

The Cubes of Sapphire

Things they never told you about the Ten Commandments  

Sapphire Throne connection

The following is the startling truth behind the story of the Ten Commandments. The prophet Moses (i.e. Moshe) was given two brilliant cubes of sapphire with the commandments bored from one side to the other. When the cubes were put up in front of his shining face they would appear in the sky for all Israel to read.

PLEASE NOTE: The following article was written by Jason C.N. Jordan and originally published at: http://www.flyingchariotministries.com/cubesofsapphire.htm.

“Sapphire Throne Ministries” has received permission from Mr. Jordan to re-post it.  http://www.sapphirethroneministries.com/,  http://www.facebook.com/SapphireThroneMinistries &  https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/

——–

“O afflicted, storm-tossed one, who has not been consoled : Behold, I will set down gems as your [flooring] stones and lay your foundation with sapphires.” (Isaiah 54:11)

When the Prophet Moshe, A’aron, his sons and the seventy elders ascended Mount Sinai to meet with Elohim (G-d), the Torah notes the unique condition of the terrain beneath Him as He walked. “Moshes and A’aron, Nadab and Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel went up and saw the Elohim of Israel. Under his feet was something like a pavement made of sapphire, clear as the sky itself.” (Exodus 24:9-10).

sea-of-glass-like-crystal-or-sapphire-tilework

Sapphire is also mentioned in relation to YHWH’s throne in  Ezekiel 1:26-28; “Above the expanse over (the heads of the living creatures) was what looked like a throne of sapphire, and high above on the throne was a figure like that of a man. I saw that from what appeared to be his waist up he looked like glowing metal, as if full of fire, and that from there down he looked like fire; and brilliant light surrounded him. Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of YHWH. When I saw it, I fell face down, and I heard the voice of one speaking.” Because no man has ever seen the face of YHWH and lived (Exodus 33:20), we know that this individual who also walked with Adam in Gan Edan, appeared to Moshe at Mount Sinai and later in Ezekiel’s vision, was none other than the pre-incarnate Messiah Yahshua. Rabbinic Judaism even admits that this tangible form of Elohim, who “…spoke to Moshe face to face” (Exodus 33:11), was YHWH’s tangible express image.

Sapphire Man Blue

The stones or pavement of sapphire described in Exodus 24:10 relates the effect Elohim had on the earth of Mount Sinai, when He stepped off His throne. Thus the stone that was prepared for the Ten Commandments had to have been sapphire. To think that YHWH etched His chief eternal commands of the Torah on anything else other than this material, denies basic deductive reasoning espoused directly from the text. Exodus 24:12; “Elohim said to Moshe, ‘Come up to me on the mountain and stay here, and I will give you the cubes of stone, with the law and commands I have written for their instruction.”

Sapphire Cube with Magen Daivid Star Inside  3

Sapphire carries a natural and beautiful blue hue. This colour symbolises wisdom and heavenly stability. It is the colour of the sky, the sea, and the colour of the throne room of heaven. Midrash Lekakh Tov describes the sapphire on which the Ten Commandments were etched as being literally cut from YHWH’s very own throne.

The word “sapphire” appears in the TaNaK as “sapir” and is actually borrowed from a Sanskrit word. Though it is a foreign term, it does have a Semitic root that relates to the Hebrew words: sefer, meaning “book,” sipur, meaning “story” and safar, meaning “recount.”

10 Commandments - Jerusalem, Israel by Noam Chen

Although the stones on which the Ten Commandments are written are almost universally perceived as two rectangular slabs with rounded off tops, the Ten Commandments, according to the Talmud, were engraved on two cubes of blue sapphire stone.

Question: But why were they cubed and why don’t believers generally know about this?

Answer: In Hebrew they are called Luchot ha-Berit, which literally means,” Cubes of the Covenant.” Whilst the word “tablet” is not necessarily an incorrect transliteration, it is less accurate, because a “cube” describes dimension and volume whereas the term “tablet” does not. Orthodox Judaism has always known the Ten Commandments were inscribed onto cubes. However, the rest of the world, especially Christianity, does not normally look to the Jews for Scriptural advice. The truth is that most western people unconsciously draw this aspect of Bible history from Cecil B. Demille’s Film: The Ten Commandments.

Sapphire 4264289-hot-flame-burning-on-cold-blue-ice-cubes-on-a-reflective-surface

Exodus 32:16; “The cubes were Elohim’s handiwork, and the script was the script of Elohim engraved within the cubes.” According to rabbinic tradition they were perfect cubes, with sharp corners and words bored fully through the stone, rather than carved on the surface. “…they were inscribed on one side and the other.” (Exodus 32:15b) It is said that the words did not appeared on the other side in reverse, but could be read normally. Furthermore, the inner parts of letters surrounded by complete joins stayed in exact position without any visible support.

The perfect cut of the cubes symbolized Divine perfection. It is no accident that their shape was patterned after the dimensions of a cube of salt, an essential ingredient to mankind’s very existence.

Sapphire Blue Mineral boleite5923b

Salt’s unique taste serves as a human’s foundational reference point and heightens the natural flavour inherent in all foods. This function alludes to the Torah’s purpose as a reference point to understanding life and drawing the best from it.

Chloride and sodium ions, which are the two major components of salt, are necessary for the preservation of all living creatures. This concept of preservation is also another characteristic that mimics Torah, in that it preserves the soul of him who toils in it.

Hands Glowing Blue World

Matthew 5:13-16; “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? … You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid… Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”Messiah Yahshua is punctuating a seemingly simple teaching with symbolism straight from the Torah. His reference to salt alludes to the Ten Commandments and the light alludes to the brightness that emanated from Moshe’s face. The city[1] on the hill refers to Moshe who stood on Mount Sinai.

Of all the 613 commandments, YHWH selected Ten Commandments for special attention. He did this by presenting them on two priceless objects that are synonymous with eternity, directly communicating them to Israel and placing them within the Ark of the Covenant.

Ark - Light Golden Wings

The Ark of the Covenant rested in the Holy of Holies. This room, which was measured at 10 cubits by 10 cubits by 10 cubits, was also a perfect cube. It is said that when the Ark rested there it took up no space whatsoever. When each end of the Ark was measured to its facing wall it measured exactly 5 cubits. YHWH’s perfect law and perfect presence resided within another worldly dimension of perfect yet incomprehensible geometry. Sacred object was placed within sacred object, combining meaning and form. Note that the shape of the tefillin[2] boxes that house pieces of Torah are also cubed.

Another Midrash says that the tablets “carried their own weight,” enabling Moshe to carry them down the mountain. Exodus 32:15a; “Moshe tuned and descended from the mountain, with two tablets of the testimony in his hands…”

Sapphire Blue Little Cubes Abstract

Exodus 34:29; “It came about when Moshe was coming down from Mount Sinai (and the two cubes of the testimony were in Moshe’s hand as he was coming down from the mountain), that Moshe did not know that the skin of his face shone because of his speaking with Him (YHWH).”

The light that radiated from Moshe’s face had a function beyond that of being evidence of prolonged exposure to YHWH’s presence. For when he held aloft one cube, the light emanating from his face would send out a strong beam of light into the sky, which caused the commandments to appear overhead as YHWH uttered them with an echoless voice that came from every direction. The Midrash describes each utterance literally causing every Israelite’s heart to fail, which required YHWH to continuously resurrect the Children of Israel at the close of each sentence. This ordeal was causing great trauma to the people, prompting them to plead with Moshe to stop Elohim speaking. Exodus 19:19 “…You speak to us, and we will listen; but do not let Elohim speak to us, or we will die.’

Question: What about the second set of cubes? Didn’t Moshe write them?

Answer: The answer is no! Exodus 34:1; “YHWH said to Moshe, “Carve for yourself two stone cubes like the first ones, and I shall inscribe on the tablets the words that were on the first cubes, which you shattered.” After Israel had sinned they had descended very quickly to a considerably low spiritual level. The second set of cubes had to reflect this lowered state. By no longer being cut by YHWH, the cubes reflected this diminished spiritual level.

The shattered pieces of the original cubes were carefully gathered up and placed in the Ark along with the intact second set. These pieces are called, Shivrei Luchot, which means, “the remnants of the tablets (or cubes).”

The Ten Commandments

Now that the stones on which the Ten Commandments were bored have been investigated, let’s examine the some of the meaning in the commands themselves.

In the Torah there is an array of words used to describe its Divine command. They are: mitzvah (commandment or literally “love deed”), dibbur (word), mishpat (law), ed (testimonial), and chok (decree).

Scroll Piece

The word “chok” is distinct from the other terms for several reasons. It is a decree, which does not appear to have an obvious reason and upon deeper contemplation continues to elude any rationale. The word “chok” also means “boundary.” Proverbs 8:29; “When He assigned the sea its limits [chuko].”

However, the literal meaning of chok is “engraving.” So in a sense all the Ten Commandments can be classified as chukkim (plural) – engraved supra-rational laws.

Ten Commandments - Decalogue Parchment

According to the Zohar, the Torah was the genesis of the Divine Will and was originally encapsulated in the engraved supernal purified form of the Ten Commandments. Therefore, the engraved Torah preceded the written Torah.

Commandments under the Microscope on the First Cube

1. I am the YHWH your Elohim who took you out of the Land of Egypt.

It isn’t beneath the Almighty omnipotent Elohim, before whom “all is considered like naught” to personally interfere in the workings of the world, whether to liberate a persecuted nation from the hand of their oppressors. We can always trust that YHWH is watching over us attentively and controlling all the events which affect our lives.

2. You shall not have other Elohim in My presence.

YHWH is the only one who controls all events and occurrences. No other entity – not your government, not your boss, not your spouse – can benefit or harm you unless YHWH has so decreed. Every one of us shares a special relationship with YHWH, and no power can interfere and disturb this relationship.

3. You shall not take the name of YHWH, your Elohim, in vain.

The above described relationship may indeed be intimate and personal, but you must never lose perspective—He’s your Creator, not your buddy. Just as “familiarity breeds contempt,” so, too, prayer three times a day can dull one’s senses and cause one to lose some of the reverence due to the King of kings.

4. Remember the Sabbath day to sanctify it.

Maintaining this relationship with Elohim requires effort on our part. All too often we are so immersed in our daily routine that we forget that in actuality it is our connection with YHWH which matters most. Therefore, Elohim commanded us to allocate one day every week for “relationship maintenance.” This is the Sabbath, a day to focus on the real priorities in life, and draw inspiration for the following week.

5. Honour your father and your mother.

Why is this commandment included in the “between man and Creator” tablet? Doesn’t this command belong on the second tablet? Perhaps the lesson is that although we owe everything to YHWH, we must not forget to express gratitude to those people whom YHWH has empowered to help us in our journey through life. As the Talmud says: “The wine belongs to the host, but thanks is [also] said to the waiter.”

Commandments under the Microscope on the Second Cube

Although most of the following prohibitions are against sins that most of us wouldn’t even consider committing, these prohibitions have subtle undertones which are applicable to every person.

6. Do not murder.

Murder is a result of one person’s deeming another person totally insignificant. In truth, every human was created by YHWH in His holy image, and therefore has an innate right to exist. The first message we must internalize is the importance of respecting every individual. YHWH thinks this person is important—so should you.

7. Do not commit adultery.

Misguided love. Yes, we must be loving, kind and respectful to everyone, but this doesn’t mean we “love bomb” everyone constantly. There are guidelines which we must follow. Sometimes, love entails being severe and abstaining from exhibiting it.

8. Do not kidnap.

The essence of kidnapping is utilising another for personal gain. Focus on being a real friend; don’t be in the relationship only for your own benefit. Be there for your friend even when it is uncomfortable or inconvenient for you.

9. Do not bear false witness against your neighbour

Every person judges. Every person is in a constant state of observing their acquaintances and friends, silently and subconsciously judging their every word and action. We must be wary of a tendency to “bear false witness” in the process of issuing our personal verdict on any matter concerning a neighbour. We must always give the benefit of the doubt, taking into consideration various factors of which we may be unaware, ensuring that we don’t reach an erroneous judgment.

10. Do not covet your neighbour’s possessions

This means to be happy for your neighbour’s good fortune. This is done by training yourself to intellectually respect a neighbour who enjoys a significantly superior standard of living. Practice consistently viewing them in a positive light and learn to love their accomplishments. Share their sorrow during their difficult moments.

BOOKS BY Jason C.N. Jordan

Jason C.N. Jordan - All Lights on in the Master's House

ALL LIGHTS ON IN THE MASTER’S HOUSE delves into the pagan origins of Christianity and uncovers the ruthless schemes of its founders. In their own words read how they set in motion a plan to dumb-down and twist the original full messianic message of the Scriptures. Learn how they fashioned a faith, which after eighteen hundred years has given birth to a religion that is completely choked from its foundations.

Read how the church has successfully managed to reinvent both the Messiah and the Apostle Paul’s personages into Greco-Roman crusaders. See how they usurped Messiah’s mission of restoring loving obedience to His Father’s Commandments into a used car salesman pitched message of lawlessness.

Christian theology teaches that the former way of Eternal Salvation through faith-driven observance of G-d’s Commands has been replaced with a conditional acceptance of belief in a single miraculous event. The crucifixion has been misappropriated and exploited to enable a believer to continue to perpetuate a sinful lifestyle, which is unconditionally covered by grace. Essentially this philosophy does little more than equip a believer with the intellectual knowledge of an event that even demons (as the Bible calls them) acknowledge.

Learn how G-d’s gift of grace was and still is conditional to ongoing obedience and regular repentance. This book clearly shows that the Scriptures teach that Salvation has to be worked out through much fear and trembling and that self-motivated study of the Scriptures is the key to finding intimacy with the one true G-d of the Hebrews.
The trial, beating and impaling of G-d’s Son was a pivotal act on which the whole law (Torah) hangs for all eternity and was not an act that was designed to put an end to it, but to put an end to its location from tablets of stone to hearts of flesh.

Find out how and why the true name of G-d and his Son has been deliberately obscured and replaced and why many key words and phrases in the Bible can be traced to the names of pagan gods. Ironically, the Bible teaches that the names of these foreign gods are not to be uttered during worship.

This book will challenge your belief system to the very core and will outline key characteristics that are inherent in believers that are truly in love with the one true and eternal G-d of Israel.

Latest Release

Jason C.N. Jordan - Lightning from the Master's House

The long awaited sequel to All Lights on in the Master’s House is finally available.

Warning: Unlike my first book, this volume is not written for comfortable Christians! It is written for Nazarene Israelites, Jews or Individuals who are seriously considering leaving a Church environment.

Ignored by 99% of religious institutions who profess to follow the Bible is the fact that the Jews were just one of twelve tribes that accepted the whole yoke of the Torah at Mount Sinai. This truth, plainly readable in the most diluted Bible translation, causes the common view of the Old Testament laws being just for Jews to disappear in a nanosecond. Furthermore the Bible attests to the Torah’s suitability for all mankind. “One Torah shall be to him that is home-born, and to the stranger that sojourns among you”(Exodus 12:49). Ignorance of this fact has robbed thousands, if not millions, of believers of their core mission directive, to sift Israel from the nations and, like Messiah, only go “…to the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel.” Rebbe Yahshua (who most of the world call “Jesus”) didn’t come to save “the lost,” but “what was lost.” What appears as simple semantics is actually the key to truly understanding the full messianic message of the Scriptures.
