Yahowah The Mighty One Yahowsha The Anointed Messiyah


Yada Yahowah

Book 1: Genesis

…Why Are We Here

Dabar – Word

Do You Know My Name?

Yahowah has chosen to initiate this conversation with us using a mashal, the

Hebrew word for “parable,” or more accurately: “a word picture depicting

something important.” The wisdom and guidance we are going to analyze is from

“Proverbs,” a transliteration of the Latin proverbium.

The 30th chapter of this collection reveals an essential message. It asks: “Do

you yada Yahowah?” In the words which follow, God introduces Himself, He

presents the source of wisdom, He reveals the way to life, He meticulously details

the things He will not, under any circumstances, tolerate, and He prophetically

presents the consequence of us ignoring His advice.

In that God created mankind for the express purpose of developing personal

one-on-one relationships, He used individuals with whom He had a relationship to

make Himself known to the rest of us. His prophets and wise men serve as guides,

illuminating the way to our Heavenly Father. One such man was ‘Aguwr; he

along with Solomon and Hezekiah, were inspired to write the Mashal.

‘Aguwr’s name tells us that he was one “who gathered,” in this case, the

wisdom of Yahowah. We know this because he was the son, or representative, of

Yaqeh, “the blameless one who burns brightly and cleanses.” These names

indicate ‘Aguwr gathered and shared Yahowah’s enlightenment. His disciple,

‘Ukal, devoured these insights; serving as an example for us.

They begin: “The word (dabar – account and testimony) of ‘Aguwr (the one

who gathers), the son (ben) of Yaqeh (the blameless who burns brightly and

cleanses) and ‘Ukal (the one who consumes): ‘Yshayah’el (a name which

means: God (‘el) Existing As (hayah) Man (‘ysh)) bears burdens, lifts up, and

carries souls away (massa’ – unburdening and uplifting them). The Mighty and

Upright (geber/gabar – the strong and able One who confirms, strengthens, and

prevails as) ‘Yshayah’el (God Existing As Man) declares divine revelation

(na’um – speaks prophetically as God, delivering an authoritative message).”

(Proverbs 30:1-2) The one who “bears our burdens and uplifts our souls is the

Redeemer, the Messiyah, the Anointed Implement of Yah, Yahowsha. He is


‘Yshayah’el: God existing in the form of a man. He is the source of Divine

revelation. He is the Word made flesh.

‘Yshayah’el is one of the most important and least understood names in

Scripture. Yahowah used it to describe His Messianic manifestation in Isaiah’s

ninth chapter—the passage we examined earlier in amplified form. While it is

stated more majestically and unequivocally there, Yashayahu (Isaiah) also

confirms that ‘Yshayah’el is our Savior, that He is Almighty God in human form.

Listen to it again: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given,

eternally bestowed, delivered up, and allowed to pay. Supreme authority

shall always exist on His shoulders for Him to carry our burdens away. His

name has been, is, and will be called out, summoned, and read aloud:

Wonderful Councilor, Almighty God, Eternal Father, Patron of Redemption.

Of the exceeding greatness and magnitude of His favor and restoration,

friendship and reward, and His supreme authority and power, nothing will

ever diminish throughout all space-time. He shall rule upon the throne of

David (of Love) and over His realm, rendering it sure and prosperous and He

will restore and renew it with verdicts which are just and vindicating, leading

to justification and salvation from this time forth and forevermore. The

passion of Yahowah will perform this as ‘Yshayah’el.” (Yasha’yahu/Isaiah


If you are checking, you won’t find “’Yshayah’el” written in any English

translation, but it is there, sure as life, on the 2,000-year-old Great Isaiah Scroll

found in Qumran. In the chapter dedicated to this passage, “’Yshayah’el,” I’ve

even provided you with a link to an online photograph of this section of the scroll

to demonstrate this reality. So the issue isn’t that the translators didn’t know that

‘Yshayah’el was the culmination of Scripture’s most profound Messianic

prophecy, or that they did not realize that ‘Yshayah’el was a name, and not a

word. You’ll find it referenced in Strong’s Concordance, the dean of biblical

lexicons. In the interactive form of Strong’s, the name is linked directly to this

passage. The problem is: scholars have very little respect for God’s name and His

titles. The consequence of this grievous crime will become evident as we unwrap

this divine mashal, or parable.

Before we leave Isaiah, however, on a topic related to ‘Yshayah’el, there is a

specific reason the verse begins “unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given”

and yet not one in a million Christians or Jews comprehends the significance. The

key to understanding the verse is provided in the account of the fourth day of

creation. Yahowah predicted that in mankind’s fourth millennium after the

departure from Eden, the “greater light (the Messiyah)” would become “visible to

us as a sign and symbol.” That’s what happened. Yah’s son, His representative,

the one who came in His father’s name and was about the Father’s business,

became visible to humankind. As the human manifestation of God, the Messiyah


Yahowsha was not, however, “born.” God has always been and will always be. As

a result, it is senseless, even demeaning, to celebrate “Christ’s birthday.” Simply

and brilliantly stated: a child was born, a son was given.

Returning to the opening of Proverbs 30, it’s worth noting that the King

James renders massa’, meaning “lifts up and carries a burden,” as “even the

prophecy,” even though that isn’t what the word means. The NIV, or New

International Version, unable to separate itself from the KJV legacy, conveys “an

oracle,” but provides a footnote, saying that it could also be saying: “Jakeh of

Massa.” The NASB also demonstrates that it is a slave to familiarity by writing

that Aguwr’s father, Jakeh, was “the oracle.” Strong’s, the oldest Hebrew-English

dictionary, acknowledges that massa’ is a cognate of nasa’ and means “to bear a

burden and to uplift a soul,” but since it is keyed to the King James, its author

routinely adds the KJV rendering at the end of his list, no matter how awkward or

out of place it may be.

Yet, all one has to do to verify that massa’ means “to bear a burden and/or to

uplift a soul,” is to look at any of the other 65 times the word is used in Scripture.

In each case, the “lifting a burden” definition fits and “prophetic oracle”

misrepresentation doesn’t. The reason, however, that the translators elected to

render massa’ incorrectly here is because they didn’t consider the meaning of

‘Yshayah’el, or acknowledge its inclusion in Isaiah/Yahsha’yahu’s Messianic

prophecy. No ordinary man could do the things being attributed to ‘Yshayah’el in

this Proverb. So this is one of a thousand examples where inaccurate translations

transformed a profoundly important message into meaningless drivel.

‘Aguwr recognized what we must come to know and accept if we want to

understand our Creator and His creation. This message is for those who want to

live forever with Him in it. He was inspired to write: “Surely (kiy – because and

indeed; and by way of contrast) separated (min – removed from the source) I

don’t exist (ba’ar – I am senseless and destroyed), a man (‘ysh) without the

understanding (lo’ biynah – devoid of discernment, lacking the insight and

wisdom) of ‘Adam (‘adam – mankind)—neither (lo’) taught (lamad) wisdom

(chokmah) nor one who knows and experiences (yada’ – recognizes or is

acquainted with, understands) the Set-Apart One (qadowsh – from qadash, the

One who is separated, pure, majestic, and honored; the One who sets apart,

cleanses, and purifies).” (Proverbs 30:3)

‘Yshayah’el, God Existing As Man, is being identified with “the Set-Apart

One,” one of many Messianic titles. Just a moment ago, we were told that

‘Yshayah’el was “the Upright One” and “the Mighty One,” our Redeemer and the

“Divine Revealer.” Now we discover that He is the source of existence and

wisdom. That makes ‘Yshayah’el the Creator, our Savior, and the Light of the

world. ‘Aguwr states emphatically that it is through recognizing and knowing

Him that we live. Separated from Him we die. Further, by using yada’, meaning


“to know and recognize in a relational sense,” the Set-Apart One is being

presented as a personal and living entity, an individual who can be known and


Introductions made, and testimony revealed, we are now confronted with

some very compelling questions: “Who (miy) descends from (yarad) and

ascends to (‘alah) heaven (shamayin)? Who gathers and receives (‘acaph

harvests into His company and collects into His association) the Spirit (ruwach)

into the palms of His hands (chophen)? Who wraps up (tsarar – encloses and

restores) the waters (mayim – the source of life and cleansing) in a garment

(simlah – a feminine noun meaning apparel which covers and adorns)? Who

comes onto the scene, stands upright, enabling others to stand, establishing

(quwm) all the (kol – the whole) earth (‘erets – land and realm) without ceasing

(‘ephec)? What (mah) is His personal and proper name (shem – renown and

identification)? What is His Son’s (ben) personal and proper name (shem)?

Surely (kiy) you know (yada’ – recognize and understand, are acquainted with

and acknowledge it).” (Proverbs 30:4) Once upon a time, in the land of revelation,

these names were known and they were shouted from the rooftops. But that time

and place isn’t here and now. Of the six billion souls who currently occupy our

planet, maybe less than one in a million people know both names.

Yet there is only one who comes and goes from heaven, who gathers and

receives souls with His Spirit, who provides life, cleanses, and adorns, who stood

up for us so that we could stand and be established forever with Him. He is

Yahowah. And His Son, His representative, the One who came from Him bearing

His name, doing His business, is Yahowsha. There is no other God, nor any other

manifestation of God-Existing-As-Man. There is but one Mighty One, one Set-

Apart One, one Upright One, one Son of the Almighty, and one Redeemer. None

but Yahowsha even make the claim.

God manifest Himself in human form, which is what ‘Yshayah’el means. He

did so to save us, which is what Yahowsha means. The Messiyah was set apart

from God; He came onto the scene; He stood upright for us, and enabled us to

stand with Him, established forever. Consider this a synopsis of the Word.

Yahowah personally provided the answer to this proverbial question in the

introduction to His Commandments. “God (‘elohiym) spoke (dabar – declared)

all (kol) these (‘ehel) Words (dabar), saying (‘amar – avowing, claiming,

commanding, and promising): I am Yahowah (YHWH) your God (‘elohiym).

Because of relationship (‘asher) I came forth to bring (yatsa’) you out of (min

– to set you apart from) the house (bayith – the dwelling and abode) of bondage

(‘ebed – slavery, servitude, and submission; of work and worship) in the land

(‘erets – territory and realm) of Mitsrayim (the crucible of Egypt). You shall not

(lo’) establish or institute (hayah – bring into existence or exist with) other

(‘acher – different) gods (‘elohiym) beside and beyond (‘al – in addition to) My


personal presence (paniym – My face to face appearance before you).” (Exodus


The Creator and Savior introduces Himself by name. He says “I am Yahowah

your God.” The next word tells us why. ‘Asher is all about relationship. Yahowah

wants to establish a personal relationship with us on a first-name basis.

The Commandment suggests what the Proverb confirms. God is active and

personally engaged in the lives of His people. He makes personal appearances to

rescue and establish them. Moreover, He is about freedom, not bondage. He is

interested in us standing up, not bowing down in submission. He is committed to

relationships, not religion.

Further, the Commandment confirms what the Proverb suggests. There are

two “houses or abodes,” not one. The Proverb depicts God-Existing-As-Man

descending from and ascending to heaven (His home) to gather and receive those

who possess His Spirit, enabling them to stand and endure forever with Him. The

Commandment speaks of Yahowah personally rescuing His people from the

house of submission and slavery, the house of work and worship, and thus of

religion. This is the crucible known as the Abyss; it is the abode of the Adversary.

And while these realms represent the only eternal destinations, we will soon

discover that the overwhelming preponderance of souls will simply die and know

neither liberation nor incarceration.

Since it is natural for most to lose sight of the big picture in the midst of the

detailed strokes which comprise it, please understand that while Yahowah freed

His people from servitude in Egypt, this act serves as a metaphor for something

much more universal and profound. By including a reference to this exodus from

servitude among the only words He wrote with His own hand, Yahowah is saying

that His merciful rescue of His people from bondage in Egypt is central to His

plan of salvation for the rest of us—that imbedded in that plan is the plan—a plan

of salvation immortalized in the seven Miqra’ey’s portrayal of the Exodus.

The name Yahowah selected for Egypt, “Mitsrayim,” means “crucible.” As

such, it is a place where impurities are separated and burned away, leaving only

the pure, tested, and desired material. Egypt, as a crucible, was a place of anguish,

death, and destruction, from which God freed His people to live with Him in the

Promised Land. The deeper message being delivered here is that our mortal

existence on Earth is also a crucible, one wrought with oppression and

enslavement in human schemes. But fortunately, Yahowah has provided a way out.

Putting it all together we see God telling us that He wants to free us all from

bondage, removing all those who ask Him from our temporal crucible, pure,

without the stain of sin, so that we might live in His presence.

However, those who elect not to rely on Yahowah, and who are left as an

impurity in the crucible, will find themselves forever imprisoned in the Abyss.

And those who remain slaves to men in religious submission, will find their souls


separated as dross, ultimately ceasing to matter, returning to the dust from which

they were made. In the crucible metaphor, souls who don’t accept God’s way out

are “burned off” into nothingness, while their oppressors are left confined for all

time. And yet those who rely upon Yahowah and walk with Him, are led to the

Promised Land.

There is no better place to position this message than in the introduction to

His Commandments. It tells us that the Exodus is more than one nation’s escape

from oppression; it is a process, a pathway to salvation, which begins with

Passover, Unleavened Bread, and FirstFruits, and ends with Reconciliations and

Shelters—a time of camping out with God in His home. It means that the seven

Miqra’ey aren’t thoughtless religious celebrations, but instead the way to God—

the path for all people and all generations. It also means that Lent, Palm Sunday,

Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday, along with Halloween and

Christmas play no role in mankind’s exodus from the crucible.

The final salvo in the introduction to the Commandments conveys a message

incompatible with the sensibilities of modern man, of man steeped in the religion

of secular humanism. Mankind’s replacement moral code of political correctness,

of multiculturalism, debilitating entitlements, wealth reallocation, responsibility

avoidance, sexual alternatives, deceptive rationalizations, unfounded opinions,

and hypocritical diatribes on tolerance, are at odds with God’s position. Yahowah

has drawn a line in the sand and said that you are either with Me or against Me,

free or enslaved. According to our Creator, there is only one God, and He will not

tolerate those who institute, establish, or exist with any other god or with a spirit

by any other name. It’s relationship or religion. You can’t have both.

I am often asked, “Can someone be saved without knowing Yahowah’s and

Yahowsha’s name, and without knowing the Word?” The answer is “Maybe, but I

wouldn’t bet my soul on it.” The fact is, God couldn’t and didn’t tell us how

corrupt our understanding could be before we are more wrong than right.

He could and did, however, tell us what was wrong and what is right.

Therefore, I am certain that all who understand the Word, who know Yahowah,

and who rely upon Yahowsha become sons and daughters of God, inheriting all

that is His. They will live forever in His home—guaranteed.

I am also certain that those who corrupt the Word, whitewashing it, leading

people away from the way, the truth, and the life, will be judged. They will all be

convicted and then punished by way of eternal incarceration, receiving the penalty

of the perpetual anguish.

As for those caught in the middle, those who are neither ambassadors of truth

nor of deceit, the victims of religion, their fate depends upon how unfamiliar they

are with God and the path to Him, and/or how corrupt and errant their beliefs have

become. If their understanding of God and His plan differ materially from


Yahowah’s revelation, then they will be unknown to and separated from the source

of life. As such, death will be the end of their consciousness.

So I ask those seeking to know the fate of loved ones victimized by religious,

political, societal, and academic deceptions: “Upon whom did they rely?” Was it

the spirit of Christmas and Easter or the Spirit of Tabernacles and Passover: Satan

or Yahowah? Was it the Lord of Sunday Worship or the Set-Apart One of the

Sabbath rest: the Counterfeiter or the Creator? Was it the fearsome god of religion

or the Upright One who establishes revered relationships: the Adversary or our

Heavenly Father? Did they trust the edicts of man or the Word of God? Did they

seek forgiveness by confessing to a priest and rely upon the Church for salvation?

Did they pray to Mary and solicit the aid of Saints? Was the Babylonian practice

of Communion and Mass important to them? Was their god’s name “Lord” and

their savior’s name “Jesus?” Did they end their prayers saying “In god’s name we

pray, Amen,” and thereby attribute divine status to the Egyptian sun god, Amen

Ra? Did they think they would earn a pass to heaven by being good or by doing


It all boils down to this: how misleading can a path be before it heads in the

wrong direction? How errant can one’s beliefs be before they are delusional? How

much poison can someone ingest without dying? How corrupted do you suppose

the object of a person’s faith must become before their trust is placed in that

which is not true? If the god a person knows is a spirit created by men, then

chances are, they do not know the Spirit who created men.

Yahowsha said: “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” He did not say that

He was a way, a variation of truth, or one of many sources of life. Scripture, from

Genesis to Revelation, teaches that those who rely on Yahowah and His Word

will live and those who rely on themselves or man’s words will die.

That said, my job isn’t to determine which individual souls will be rewarded

with life or succumb to death. I have been called to illuminate and recommend the

Way to Life and to expose and condemn the path that leads to death. Those who

have passed away can no longer be helped. Their fate is sealed. It profits no one to

agonize over them. But for those who live, what you and your loved ones choose

to do with the truths made manifest by the Word will ultimately determine your


Based upon Scripture, I know for certain that no matter how religious the

Muslim, none will be saved. Their path, revelation, and god are the antithesis of

Yahowah and His Word. No matter how observant the Hindu or devout the

Buddhist, so long as they don’t deceive others, their souls will be annihilated. The

same fate awaits the passive socialist and secular humanist. Because in the end, it

matters not if they relied upon a false god or no god at all.

But that isn’t the end of the bad news. Revelation’s open letters tell us that

even within Christendom, most will die. Catholicism is called “the seat of Satan.”


The religion is proclaimed “dead” for having married the Whore of Babylon, Lord

Ba’al. Protestants, living in Western democracies, are referred to as vomit for

being neither completely right nor completely wrong. Speaking of these souls,

Yahowsha said that He was outside looking in, and thus most are not saved. This

alone is sufficient to answer the question of how misguided and therefore

unfamiliar Christians as a whole are with God—and He with them. It also

suggests how intolerant God will be of that which is inaccurate when it comes to

salvation. It is why He said that “the way is narrow which leads to life, and few

there are who find it.”

This is not God’s fault; it is our own. We have corrupted His Word and made

our own way. Yahowah’s revelation is clear, uncompromising, and consistent. It

is so magnificent in its detail and majestic in its scope, so brilliant in its insights

and profound in its style, so timeless in its truths and accurate in its predictions, so

gracious in its message and loving in its purpose, it could be from none other than

God, the Creator and Redeemer, from ‘Yshayah’el, the Set-Apart, Mighty, and

Upright One—Yahowah. His Word serves as His invitation to life.

I say these things emphatically because He said the same thing: “The entire

(kol – the whole and every, the totality of the) Word (‘imrah – the promise and

the prescription) of God (‘elowha) is pure, tested, and true (tsaraph – refined,

precious, and worthy), a shield for (magen – an enclosure which surrounds,

defends, and saves) those who put their trust in (chacah – those who seek

salvation through reliance upon) Him.” (Proverbs 30:5) And lest you miss it,

Yahowah has once again underscored His crucible metaphor.

Also, should you not have known the answer to the question God posed in the

previous verse, Yahowah tells you where to look for it. Scripture confirms that

Yahowah as Father and Yahowsha as Son uniquely meet the delineated criteria.

The instruction of where to look for answers, for understanding, for truth, and for

salvation is the same throughout Scripture. Yahowsha and the apostles

consistently tell us that there is but one place to turn to know these things: “the

Torah, Prophets, and Psalms.”

God was not coy about sharing His name with us either. Search the Word and

you will find Yahowah written exactly 7,000 times. Seven is the Creator’s

favorite number. Everything important is based upon the principle of six (the

number of man) in addition to God (who is one) equals the desired result: seven

(perfection).Yahowsha’s name is engraved in 77 Messianic prophecies. Between

them, they appear an average of seven times a page. Prior to man’s meddling, this

frequency was more than sufficient for all mankind to know the answer to both

proverbial questions. But after clerical copyedits, fewer than one in 7,000 souls

can answer this question: “What (mah) is His personal and proper name (shem)

and what is His Son’s (ben) personal and proper name (shem)?”


If you believe that God is forgiving of such things, that God will surely save

the religious, or that God was surprised by man’s dubious deed, think again.

Three thousand years ago He revealed this poignant warning: “Do not add to

(yasaph – augment or rephrase) His Words (dabar – sayings and message,

communication and account, record and revelation) lest beware (pen) He will

judge and convict you (yakach – adjudicate and rebuke you, punishing you) and

you shall be proven a liar (kazab – you shall be disappointed and will fail in

your vanity, either ceasing to exist or arriving at an unsatisfactory condition and

conclusion).” (Proverbs 30:6)

All who are judged will be found guilty and will be convicted. The standard is

the Torah, and it requires perfection. So the only way to avoid being found guilty

is to be ransomed—to have someone who is perfect and worthy pay the penalty

your thoughts, behaviors, words, and deeds have earned.

This admonition devastates the notion that the Church has the right to

establish doctrine, to replace the Sabbath with Sunday, Passover with Easter,

Tabernacles with Christmas, Trumpets (Taruw’ah with Rosh Hashanah, Yahowah

with “the Lord” or “Ha Shem (the Name),” the Messiyah Yahowsha with “Jesus

Christ,” the Set-Apart Spirit with “Mary, Mother of God/Queen of Heaven,” and

Scripture’s redemptive relationship with religious ritual. When men claim the

authority to augment the teachings of God with their own edicts, they are liars.

This verse confirms that every pope shall be found guilty and will be punished by


* * *

Preaching and promoting lifelessness and separation, shav’ in Hebrew, is the

unforgivable sin manifest in the Third Commandment. That decree is amplified in

this Proverb, as it explains that shav’/desolation and damnation come by way of

errant and deceptive words. Speaking to Yahowah, ‘Aguwr says: “Two things I

ask (sha’al – request) of You; don’t withhold them (mana’ –deny them) before

(terem – between now and the point in time) I die (muwth). Keep me far away

from (rachaq – distant and removed from) desolation (shav’ – lifelessness and

emptiness, worthlessness and abandonment, devastation and damnation, vanity

and futility, being destroyed, forsaken, and separated for having been deceitful)

and keep me far away from (rachaq – distant and removed from) deceptive

words (kazab dabar – untrue statements, false speech, lies and liars, delusions

and the deluded).” (Proverbs 30:7)

Since this passage sheds light on one of the least understood and most poorly

translated Commandments, consider the actual words Yahowah etched in stone.

“You shall not lift up or deceitfully advance (nasa’ – errantly accept or


promote, falsely carry, support, bear, or sustain, forgive or endure) lifelessness

(shav’ – that which is desolate, deceitful, deadly, destructive, or damning) in the

name (shem – character or renown) of Yahowah your God (‘elohiym), for I will

not consider innocent, forgive, pardon, release, or fail to punish (naqah – free

from guilt, exempt, or cleanse) one who by association (‘asher – who takes part

in) promotes, sustains, or accepts (nasa’ – lifts up, carries forth, advances,

supports, bears, tolerates, or forgives) that which is desolate, deceitful, deadly,

destructive, or damning (shav’ – lifeless) in My name.” (Exodus 20:7)

Properly translated, the message communicated in what we refer to as the

“Third Commandment,” evolves from man’s trivial and irrational rendering to

something that merits our undivided attention. Man’s version is senseless. One

cannot “take” a name. Yahowah’s name isn’t “the Lord.” And “vain,” not only

isn’t included in the text, that word means “egotistical or failed,” depending upon

the context. So rather than God telling us not to use His name, or not to swear, He

was telling us not to deceive in His name and not to lead people away from Him

and thus from life. He is saying that promoting religion is unforgivable. This truth

is further manifest by the realization that nasa’ also conveys the idea of

“promoting false teaching and being engaged in deceit and deception,” something

completely consistent with the Proverb.

The reason false religious teachings upset Yahowah is because they lead souls

away from Him, depriving God of the thing He covets most—loving familial

relationships. Those engaged in this kind of deceit, of this kind of corruption and

counterfeiting, along with anyone who associates with them, accepts, tolerates,

and promotes their teachings, contribute to the annihilation of the souls of those

who listen to them, who trust them. These victimized souls are is worth

considering when someone you know asserts that a person’s good intent can

somehow bridge the distance between God and the place where their religion and

church have led them.

In the next verse we are reminded that self-reliance is an express ticket to

death or damnation (to separation) because the only way to obtain eternal life in

the presence of God is to rely on Him. Specifically, we must receive the bread

which was prescribed and then broken for us. This is the promise, now fulfilled,

of the Miqra’ey (Called-Out Assemblies) of Passover and Unleavened Bread.

“Permit me (nathan – grant to and bestow upon me) neither (‘al) poverty (reysh

– the state where I lack what is needed to sustain life) nor wealth (‘osher – riches

in abundance). Break bread (tarap lehem) for me as clearly communicated and

prescribed (choq – as shared and allotted, stated and ordained) lest I be selfsufficient

(saba’ – satisfied and surfeited, be self-reliant, considering my needs

met to the point of indulgence) and be deemed insufficient by You (kachash

be found disappointing and deceived, be disowned for having only deceptively

feigned a relationship with You and having faked my reliance on You, causing me


to cower in fear, prostration, and submission as the result of a failed and deceitful

dogma).” (Proverbs 30:8)

The boastful and arrogant attitude that comes from abundance is viewed

unfavorably by God. In fact, it would be fair to say, that second only to the

advancement of shav’/lifeless deception, it is the trait most disliked by our Maker.

It is one of many reasons Yahshua is so harsh in His judgment of today’s

Protestant Assemblies in His prophetic letter to the Laodiceans in Revelation.

As we journey together through the Word, there will be many surprises. One

of them is encapsulated in the comparison between saba’/sufficient and

kachash/insufficient. While it is not developed here, the consistent message of

Scripture, and one manifest in the Fifth Commandment, is that when we

collectively or individually elevate our view of ourselves and diminish our

perception of God, God reciprocates. If you see Him as worthy, He will deem

your soul worthy of living forever with Him.

But for this to be true, for it to be relevant and meaningful, the reciprocal also

needs to be true. Therefore, those who consider Yahowah of little value will be

seen by Him as having no value. God invests as much in a relationship as is

properly solicited by the other party. Diminish the role Yahowah plays in your life

and God won’t go to heroic efforts to extend it upon your death. From God’s

perspective, a person who through ignorance, indoctrination, apathy, or informed

choice, elects not to rely on Him and form a relationship with Him, will be like a

stillborn child. They don’t know Yahowah and Yahowah doesn’t know them.

That is the quid pro quo inherent in the following passage. “Don’t let me say

(‘amar – think, boast, and avow, ask, answer, and declare): ‘Who (miy) is

Yahowah (YHWH)?’ lest I be disinherited (yarash – impoverished and

dispossessed, be destitute and destroyed), caught in the act, arrested, and

incarcerated for (taphas) removing without permission and carrying away by

stealth (ganab – for secretly stealing and clandestinely removing) the personal

and proper name (shem) of my God (‘elohiym).(Proverbs 30:9)

There are two outcomes delineated here. Both are bad, but one is infinitely

worse than the other. To be disinherited by Yahowah is to be damned, which

means to be separated from Him. Those who are removed from His presence will

be destitute of life, and their souls will be dissipated upon death. But those who

purposely deceive, those who remove Yahowah’s and Yahowsha’s personal and

proper name from the Word and from their sermons, will be incarcerated. And

that’s not good because it means that Yahowah has deemed them to be in league

with the Adversary. For this crime they will spend their eternity kept away from


Yahowah realized that the translators of the KJV, NKJV, IV, NIV, ASB,

NASB, and the JPS Tanach would all do this very thing—and that they would do

so regardless of His warning. Even in this Proverb devoted to the importance of


knowing Yahowah, religious clerics replaced God’s personal and proper name

“Yahowah” with: “Who is the Lord?” And that’s not good, because the Hebrew

title Ba’al, means Lord, Ba’al is Satan, and lording over everyone is the

Adversary’s prime ambition.

This chicanery isn’t a victimless crime. Clandestinely removing Yahowah’s

name by stealth leads to souls being disinherited. God considers it shav’—an act

of desolation leading to damnation. According to the Word of God, those who do

such things will be caught; they will be arrested and incarcerated. In subsequent

chapters we will discover that all those who are incarcerated will endure the

perpetual torment. Their fate will be to spend all eternity in the Abyss with the

Adversary. And since this crime is perpetrated by the overwhelming

preponderance of pastors and priests, Hell will be a very religious place.

As for their victims, this verse suggests that they will be disinherited, and thus

become destitute of life. Such souls will be destroyed. While that theme isn’t

developed here, Yahowah will cover this topic on many occasions, each time

adding to the body of knowledge needed to make good choices and to make good

witnesses. God is serious about His name, and His family, even if mankind is not.

When confronted with the reality that religious men have copyedited God and

have purposely altered His revelation, many dismiss the evidence by saying “I

can’t believe God would allow such a thing.” But God has no alternative but to

allow men to choose poorly, and to allow the repercussions of their errors

reverberate. The moment Yahowah interferes with freewill, the act of choosing to

rely on God becomes irrelevant, love becomes impossible, and our very existence

becomes contrived.

One last thought before we move on. Yahowah has used ‘elohiym in this

passage which is the plural of god. He isn’t saying that there is more than one

God, only that He embodies the full measure of the familial relationship He

wishes to establish with us. Yahowah is our Heavenly Father, our Spiritual

Mother, and the Son. He is one God who manifests Himself in two different and

diminished ways to commune with us and to serve our needs.

The prophet who introduced us to the notion of ‘Yshayah’el, that our Creator

is the Son, the Wonderful Councilor, the Redeemer, the Eternal Father, and

Almighty God, also communicated the concept of the Suffering Servant,

predicting Yahowsha’s sacrifice as the Lamb of God. Therefore, in the context of

what has just been said, I think that the “servant” referenced in the next verse is

God. This conclusion is partially derived from the use of qalal, meaning “to view

as insignificant.” “Do not slander (lashan – falsely accuse) the Servant to His

Master (‘adown) lest (pen) He consider you of little account (qalal – slight you,

trifle with you, view you as lightly esteemed and insignificant, recede from you

and diminish you) and you be declared guilty, and become desolate or be


punished (‘asham – be held liable, suffering the consequences).” (Proverbs


It isn’t likely that a slave owner would trifle with a person who slandered one

of his servants. So, since the plain reading of the text doesn’t warrant a divine

revelation, considering the context, it would be reasonable to conclude that God is

saying that if someone falsely accuses Yahowsha, claiming for example that He as

the Suffering Servant was neither God, Messiah, nor Savior, the consequence of

that act might well lead to incarceration.

The most interesting illustration of trifling is found in Genesis, where

Yahowah puts mankind on notice. Comparing how a person or nation treats

Yisra’el (Israel) and Yahuwdym (Jews), to how He will reciprocate, God reveals:

“I will kneel down and adore, blessing (barak – I will love, favorably and

eternally endure with, and empower) those who bless and adore you, and I will

slight, trifle with, and abate (qalal – view as worthless and insignificant; nullify,

omit, reduce, recede from, decrease, and terminate) him who curses you (‘arar

invokes harm or injures you; threatens, entraps, binds, punishes, or oppresses you

by way of a spell).” (Genesis 12:3)

Qalal is that which “reduces and decreases, diminishing to nothingness

someone who is viewed as insignificant.” It is a lesson which is completely lost in

the sloppy English translations which render the verse: “I will curse those who

curse you.” Proper disclosure reveals one of the least understood concepts in

Scripture. The consequence of choosing to reject Yahowah or harm Yahuwdym is

having one’s soul dissipated—to be seen as worthless and to be terminated.

God did not say that He was going to “curse” those who don’t love Him or

His people. He didn’t say that He was going to roast all who don’t adore Him and

His chosen in hell. He simply said that if you don’t value Him and those He

values, He won’t value you. The souls of those who die without accepting

Yahowsha, Yahowah’s “source of blessings, His gift, the One who kneels down in

adoration and brings reconciliation” will be qalal, meaning, they will be “nullified

and reduced to nothingness.” It will be as if they were never born. It isn’t that God

despises them; it’s that He doesn’t know them. And those He doesn’t know, don’t


This is one of hundreds of examples demonstrating that there are three choices

and three destinations presented in Scripture. The souls who adore God and who

accept Yahowsha’s gift will live forever in Yahowah’s home as members of His

family. Those who make no choice, those who have little regard for God, those

who reject His gift, those who never leave their fallen state, will simply cease to

exist. When they die their souls are diminished, dissipated into nothingness.

That is not to say that there is no place of perpetual anguish. There is. And one

earns this fate by leading souls away from Yahowah and His gift of life. Entrance


is earned by removing Yahowah’s name from His message and by adding human

traditions to God’s revelation. Those who lift up and carry forth the doctrines of

lifelessness and desolation (religion and politics) will suffer the same fate as the

demonic spirit so many of them serve.

While the teaching embedded in this verse is profound, there hasn’t been any

overt prophecy thus far, so you may be wondering why Yahowah wanted to

commence His dialog with us with this passage. Fact is, I was wondering that

myself until…“A generation (dowr – people living in a time or age) will slight,

trifle with, and consider of little account (qalal – view as worthless and

insignificant; lightly esteem, nullify, and recede from) their Father (‘ab – God as

head of the eternal household) and will not adore (lo barak – will not love, will

not favorably and eternally endure with, will not be empowered by, will not speak

words which evoke divine favor to, nor praise, extol, or thank) their Mother (‘em

– source of life, protector, and caregiver).” (Proverbs 30:11) While there has been

plenty of competition, our generation has trifled more with God than most any


The notion of considering our Father of little account, and of not loving our

Mother clarifies the spiritual message contained in the Fifth Commandment. It

begins with kabad, the antithesis of qalal. “View as significant and consider as

worthy (kabad – favorably value, distinguish, and glorify, honor) your Father

(‘ab – God as head of the eternal household, thus Heavenly Father) and your

Mother (‘em – source of life, protector, and caregiver, thus Spiritual Mother) and

your days (yowm – time) will be prolonged (‘arak – become continuous,

maintained throughout time) in the land (‘adamah) which by way of

relationship (‘asher) Yahowah your God (‘elohiym) has prepared and given

to you as a gift (nathan – granted, devoted, and ascribed as a present).” (Exodus

20:12) Salvation is the “gift” of prolonged life in the place Yahowah has prepared

for us.

Since Yahowah routinely criticizes Yisra’el’s fathers and mothers for their

infidelity and deceit, it isn’t reasonable that He would want us to kabad / “glorify”

our earthly parents. Moreover, doing so wouldn’t add so much as a minute to our

time in the place Yahowah has prepared for us. Therefore, the object of great

value, the sole source of prolonged life, and the one who bestows the gift, is our

Heavenly Father and Spiritual Mother. And that is why ruwach, the Hebrew word

for Spirit, is feminine, as are all of Her attributes.

Yah’s message is consistent: value our Heavenly Father and He will value

you. Love our Spiritual Mother, and She will endure with you, renewing you. Do

these things and God will favor you with the gift of extended, continuous, life.

Arguably, the prophetic portrayal contained in verse 11 could apply to other

generations. But Yahowah isn’t finished yet. With each additional complaint, only

one people, place, and time qualify.


What follows is the result of considering our Heavenly Father of little account

and of not evoking the favor of our Spiritual Mother: “A generation (dowr

people living in a time or age) will be pure and clean (tahowr – ethically

upstanding and flawless) in their own eyes (‘ayin) and yet not washed of

(rachats – not cleansed of) their filth and excrement (tsow’ah – feces and dung),

a generation (dowr – people living in a time or age) lofty and exalted (ruwm

self-aggrandized, arrogant, and haughty) in their own eyes. How and why (mah)

are their eyelids raised (nasa’ – lifted up, expecting to be carried away, to be

forgiven, and to endure)?” (Proverbs 30:12-13)

This concept of spiritual misjudgment and of self-reliance is echoed in

Yahowsha’s seventh and final prophetic open letter—the one written to the

Laodiceans (meaning the people rule) in Revelation. It is one of many reasons I

see it speaking to our generation.

Forgiveness is for those who recognize they need to be forgiven. Redemption

is for those who know that they need to be ransomed from the consequence of

their sin. And herein lies the problem of revisionist morality, that of political

correctness. The modern secular humanist mantra (at least superficially) is that

everything is acceptable except that which is intolerant and judgmental. So we

live in a generation which has been conditioned to believe that their depravity is

ethically acceptable. This generation considers itself flawless and yet God sees it

rolling around in its own feces and filth. So Yahowah says, don’t look to Me for

help. You can keep your *&%$ to yourself.

God will confirm many times over that the benefit of embracing our Spiritual

Mother is that She envelops us in a Garment of Light. Since light obliterates

darkness, once we are reborn Spiritually, Yahowah only sees the good in us and not

the bad. We become like our Maker, perfect, at least in His eyes.

Continuing to assail our generation, God reminds us that deceitful and

delusional words, desolate and damning edicts, are the most destructive and

deadly of all weapons. Wielded by the politically and religiously empowered,

they devour hope and life. Here we find sharp, cutting words slaying, oppressing,

and destroying both willing and reluctant victims. “A generation (dowr – people

living in a time or age) whose teeth are swords (chereb – are cutting) and jaws

are knives, devour (‘akal – slay, oppress, and destroy) part of (min) the earth

(‘erets – land) in order to (la) impoverish and afflict (‘aniy – inflict misery and

hardship on the humbled, poor, and weak by way of imposing a lower societal

status on) the willingly abused and oppressed (‘eboyown – those who consent to

and accept being controlled politically, those who acquiesce to religious

submission) by means of (min) man (‘adam – mankind or humankind, thus read

“secular humanism”).” (Proverbs 30:14)

In this regard, Islam is the Arabic word for “submission.” Muslim means “one

who submits.” In the Qur’an, Allah says that he has chosen the religion of


submission for man. As a result, those imperiled by Muhammad’s poisonous

words not only willingly consent to live in the most oppressive and abusive

nations on earth, they are intent on imposing their dreadful condition on everyone


Likewise, Hinduism’s caste system is all about oppressing the weak.

Countless Indians live in abject poverty as a direct result of a destructive religion.

Roman Catholicism was better at imposing poverty on those who would not

consent to the Church’s dictatorial authority, than any institution in human

history. They have abused more than their share of willing stooges, inflicting

untold misery on many during the Dark Ages.

Socialist secular humanists see themselves as enlightened masters ruling over

the profane masses. To them, the end justifies the means. They will deploy all

manner of despicable lies and ruthless violence to ensure that everyone under

their control is impoverished and oppressed. It is the way of man.

The verses which follow all foreshadow our time: a time of “leeches, who

cry, ‘give me more,’ but they are never satisfied; it is never enough.”

(Proverbs 30:15) Seventy percent of America’s federal budget is now allocated to

wealth redistribution, but apparently it isn’t enough. We have become the

entitlement generation—self-absorbed and self-serving. Through Social Security

and Medicare, we are even willing to tax our children to pay for our indulgences.

As a generation, we are so far removed from Yahowah’s presence that the

“grave (she’owl – the abode of the dead) and the womb are both barren

prisons (‘otser – coercive, oppressive, and lifeless places of incarceration),

satisfied to be without living and cleansing waters.” (Proverbs 30:16) Our

culture, schools, churches, and entertainment mediums have become so polluted

with errant and perverse notions, our children are stillborn spiritually.

Our books and movies “mock (la’ag – deride, disparage, and ridicule) our

Father and see our Mother as despicable (buwz – contemptible and

insignificant), refusing Her guidance, authority, and cleansing (yiqqahah -

purging and purification).” (Proverbs 30:17) This continues to be eerily similar to

Yahowsha’s criticism of the Laodicean Assembly (Protestant Christians living

today in the Western democracies).

We are told that this is: “The way of an eagle (nesher – bird of prey or

vulture) in the sky, the way of a serpent upon a rock, the way of a navy in the

midst of the sea, and the way of a fighting man with a virgin.” (Proverbs


Because this is all prophetically indicative of the powers at play during the

last days, I believe that these examples point to the Socialist Secular Humanists of

the New World Order and their clandestine conspiracy, to the religion of

Christianity, especially as it is manifest in Roman Catholicism, to Islam, currently

man’s most vicious dogma, and to the Antichrist. In that light, the eagle, vulture,


and bird of prey may be symbolic of the American financiers and industrialists

who are the power brokers of the New World Order. Scripture refers to them as

the merchants of Babylon. Peter’s second epistle is dedicated to their conniving

conspiracy. Like the vulture, they feed on decaying flesh; and in their case, of

those they have impoverished and oppressed.

The serpent upon a rock is a dead ringer for Roman Catholicism. In His

Revelation letter, Yahowsha calls Catholics “the seat of Satan.” And Peter, in the

view of Roman Catholics, is the “rock” upon which their “Church” was built and

upon which it claims it’s authority to rule over men.

It’s hard not to see the jihadist promise of virgins in paradise stamped all over

the final example. As confirmation that it is indicative of Islam, recognize that the

Magog War is an all Islamic attack on Israel which will play out during man’s

waning days. We are told that one quarter of the planet’s population will perish in

its wake.

And finally, during the last days, the Antichrist, who is said to align with the

spirit of war, will control much of the world’s military arsenal. He will no doubt

project his influence over a consortium of nations by way of naval prowess. It

appears that he will deploy their nuclear capability during this time. We are told

that a third of the earth’s surface will be scorched beyond repair, and that during

his extended war, another third of those remaining will die in what appears to be

an atomic holocaust.

The unifying ingredient in all of this is the Whore of Babylon. She is the one

with unclean lips—the one whose lies lead people away from Yahowah and to their

willing or unwilling submission to evil’s consortium. She represents Satan and the

counterfeit religious and political scheme born and bred in Babylon. As we move

through time and the Word, we will learn a great deal more about this whorish


“In like manner, such is the way of the adulterous woman, she devours

(‘akal – consumes, destroys, and slays), and then she wipes (machah – blots out

and abrogates, abolishes and obliterates by way of) her mouth (peh – words and

speech) and says, I have done (pa’al – committed and ordained, plotted, devised,

fashioned, and forged) nothing deceitful or corrupting (‘aven – nothing out of

arrogance designed to damage one’s relationship with God, nothing evil, morally

corrupt, or false which leads to idolatry, calamity, misfortune, or punishment).”

(Proverbs 30:18) The common thread in politics and religion is death and

destruction through disingenuousness. Hypocrisy is the devil’s strong suit.

This thought is echoed in the Psalms’ closing words. “If (‘im – when) you

have been foolish (nabal – ignorant and contemptible, senseless) in (ba) self

exaltation (nasa’ – promotion and lifting up), and if (‘im) you have devised a

plan (zaman – decided upon, plotted, and intended a course of action, and


conceived a scheme) put a hand (yad) on (la) your mouth (peh).” (Proverbs


It is interesting to note that nbl root has two potential meanings depending

upon how the three Hebrew consonants are vocalized. While nabal conveys the

idea of “lacking appropriate respect and values,” nabel means “to wither, shrivel,

die, and decay.” It is the quid pro quo of Scripture. Those who foolishly elevate

themselves above God will be diminished. Those who contemptuously thirst for

religious, political, or economic power will find themselves “fallen, on their

knees, cowering in fear” come judgment day.

Most every English translation renders zaman “thought evil” or “planned

evil” following the lead of the King James. However, zaman simply conveys the

concepts of “thinking, devising, planning, proposing, muttering an idea,

meditating, plotting, scheming, deciding, intending, and resolving to do

something.” While the scheme may be evil, the intended thought was that any

human scheme designed to exalt man is not only foolish, it will have the inverse

result of what was intended. Secular humanism has degraded society and

mankind. Communism has diminished the masses to the lowest common

denominator. Political correctness has produced fallen, dying, decaying, and

valueless nations. Our entire perspective is wrong.

Recognizing the power and influence of words, Yahowah recommends

shutting our mouths. When it comes to self-exalting human schemes, it is better to

be quiet and appear foolish, than it is to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

When it comes to judgment, the penalty for promoting a religious or political

agenda is eternal incarceration, while being the victim of such a plan is simply to

be diminished to nothingness. This is an overt warning to those who propose to

elevate themselves through oratory—pastors, priests, and politicians.

Just as the previous verse has been practical, the word picture painted by the

last verse of the Proverb is designed to be graphic. “Indeed (kiy – because)

stirring up and agitating (miys – pressing and squeezing, angrily churning) milk

(halab) brings forth (yasa’ – disseminates and produces) butter (hem’ah),

stirring and agitating (miys) angry snorting (‘ap – aggressive, quick-tempered,

and wrathful breath) brings forth (yasa’ – produces and disseminates, leads to

and yields) bloodletting and death (dam – killing, both murder and

manslaughter), because angry (‘ap) agitation (miys) leads to (yasa’) contention,

strife, quarrelsome opposition, and hostility (riyb – taunting insults, mocking

ridicule, conflict, and fighting).” (Proverbs 30:33) Muhammad’s, Constantine’s,

Hitler’s, Stalin’s, and Mao’s words were spoken in anger and were specifically

designed to agitate their audience, prompting them to kill others on behalf of their

self-promoting scheme. Muhammad wasn’t the first, and Mao won’t be the last to

use words in ways which debase humankind.


If you want to be spared from the dreadful days lurking on our not-so-distant

and dark horizon, if you don’t want to be victimized by evil’s trinity, or die at the

hand of man’s self-exalting schemes, Yahowah has told you where to look and

upon whom to rely. He has even told you where not to look and whom not to

trust. But should you not yet be convinced that Yahowah is God, that His Word is

trustworthy and true, and that He has provided a way for you to live together with

Him for all eternity, rest assured He will make His case. We have just begun…
