Phillipians: 1:6 "… being confident of this very thing, that He Who began a towb work within you will complete it until the Day of YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach."
1 Aluhym anciently conversed with our fathers many times and in various ways, through the prophets. 2 But in these latter days (achariyt-haYamim) He has spoken to us through His Son. YaHuWaH promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, and through the Son He created (at) the Ages.
(achariyt-haYamim - Gen. 49:1 - first use ... 49:1 Ya'aqob called to his sons, and said: “Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which will happen to you in the days to come (achariyt-haYamim). Days to come: or "the end of days - latter days".
3 The Son is the radiance (tzemkha) of YaHuWaH's own Qabod, and the exact representation (tzelma) of His Nature, sustaining all by the mighty Power of His Word (miltha); and by His Qnoma (Occurrence of the singular Mighty-like Nature) he made cleansing from sin, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on High ...
(HaG'dulah BaM'romin Ps. 110:1), [vs. 3 “Because of His portion, that He is the Brightness of His (Splendor) and in the image of His Being by the Power of His Word. And Who has accomplished by His Power the cleansing of our sins. Behold He sits in high places to the right hand of the Sh’kinah.” HRV] 2 Cor. 4:6 For Aluhym, Who said, "Let there be Light in the darkness," has made us understand that this Light is the Brightness of the Splendor of YaHuWaH that is seen in the Face of YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach. [Both tzemkha and tzelma have the context of the exact reflecting of an original image; they are joined also to miltha that can also mean this - in terms of perfect manifestation! Therefore, from a mystical perspective, the Word is keter/crown (crown = omnipotent/omnipresent - gemetra = 620), and that makes the Word eternal and YaHuWaH Himself, according to Yahuwchanan. ]
4 having become so much superior to the Messengers, as the Name He has inherited is more excellent than theirs.
[So He - YaHuWSHuWaH with YaHuWaH as a major part of His Name became as much superior to the Messengers, as the Name he has inherited is superior to theirs (they only have "Al" in them.]
Exodus 23:20 “Behold, I send My Messenger before you, to guard you by the way, and to bring you into the place which I have prepared. 23:21 Pay attention to Him, and listen to His voice. Don’t provoke Him, for He will not pardon your disobedience, for My Name is in Him.
5 For YaHuWaH never said to any Messenger what He said to YaHuWSHuWaH:
"You are My Son.
Today I have given birth to you."
And again YaHuWaH said,
"I will be for Him a Father,
and Himself will be for Me a Son." Tehillim 2:7
6 And when He brings again the Firstborn into the world , He says, "Let all the Messengers of YaHuWaH worship Him." (Ps. 97:7) … AENT but not found.
7 Of the Messengers He says,
"He makes His Messengers winds,
and servants flames of fire." (Ps. 104:4)
8 But of the Son He says,
"Your throne, O Aluhym, is into the age of the ages.
And the rod of straightness is the rod of Your kingdom.
9 You loved righteousness and hated lawlessness.
Therefore Aluhym, Your Aluhym, has anointed You,
pouring out the oil of joy on You beyond Your companions." (Tehillim 45:6-7 - and according to Songs 1:3 - the oil is His Name)
10 And, "In the beginning, Aluhym, You founded the earth, (a) (Olam She'avar - The World That Was)
and the heavens are the work of Your Hands. (B'raysheet 1:1) ---compare with YashaYahuw 45:18 below.
11 They will perish (t), but You remain.
They will wear out like clothing.
12 Like a cloak, You will roll them up. (Rev. 6:12)
And like clothing, they will be changed.
But You are the same;
Your years will never end."(Tehillim 102:25-27)
13 "But to which of the Messengers has He ever said,
"Sit at My right hand
until I make Your enemies,
a footstool for Your feet." (Tehillim 110:1)
[The Law of Non-Contradiction: YaHuWaH cannot be the "Only Savior" AND YaHuWSHuWaH the "Only Savior" unless YaHuWaH and YaHuWSHuWaH are The Same One and Only Savior.. The Word of YaHuWaH in the TaNaK tells us many times that there is but One Savior and Redeemer - YaHuWaH. And the Apostolic Writings state that there is but One Savior - YaHuWSHuWaH --- and YaHuWSHuWaH said plainly that He and the Father are One .... With this being so, then YaHuWaH HAS TO BE YaHuWSHuWaH. There IS NO OTHER CHOICE! ]
YashaYahuw 44:6 "This is what (1.) YaHuWaH (the Father), the Sovereign of the Ysra'al, and (2.) His Kinsman Redeemer, (YaHuWaH (the Son) of Armies, says, 'I AM Aleph wTaw (The First and the Last); and apart from ME there is no Aluhym.'"[Two YaHuWaH's are not being pictured here - but One YaHuWaH in two different roles.] YashaYahuw 45:18 For thus says YaHuWaH Who created the heavens, the Aluhym Who formed the earth and made it, Who established it and didn’t create it a waste, Who formed it to be inhabited: “I AM YaHuWaH ; and there is no other.)
14 Are not all Messengers ruwach's of YaHuWaH, sent to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit deliverance?
1 So we must pay more abundant heed to what we have heard, so we do not drift away from it. 2 For if the Word spoken by the medium of Messengers was valid, and everyone who heard it and transgressed it received just retribution, how can we escape if we hate the things which are our hai, (Deut. 32:47) 3 things which began to be spoken by the Master YaHuWSHuWaH Himself, and confirmed to us by those who heard Him, 4 and YaHuWaH added His testimony by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Ruwach haKadosh distributed according to His will.
5 And furthermore, the world to come (Olam Haba*) we are talking about will not be controlled by Messengers. [*Olam Haba - the world to come - refers to an age where time and space cease to exist; all hai-forms will enter into a new dimension.]
6 For somewhere in the Scriptures it says,
"What is man, that You think of him?,
What is the son of man, that You care for him?
7 For You have made him a little lower than Messengers [Aluhym - Ps, 8:5],
You have crowned them with splendor and value.
8 Subjecting all things under his feet." (Tehillim 8:4-6)
Now when it says "all things," it means nothing is left out. But we have not yet seen all of this happen. 9 What we do see is YaHuWSHuWaH, Who "for a little while was made lower than the Messengers", now is "crowned with splendor and value" because He died on a wooden post for us. Yes, by YaHuWaH's favour, YaHuWSHuWaH tasted death for the sake of everyone apart from Aluhym. 10 It was fitting that YaHuWaH -- for Whom and through Whom all things exist--in bringing many children to splendor, should make the pioneer of their deliverance perfect through sufferings; for the One Who makes-right and those who are made-right are all of One. [all have One Father.]
11 For this reason, YaHuWSHuWaH is not ashamed to call them brothers. 12 Saying,
"I will proclaim Your Name to My brothers.
In the midst of the congregation, I will praise You." (Ps. 22:22)
13 And again, "I will put My trust in Him." And again, "Here I am--and the children whom YaHuWaH has given Me." (Yash. 8:18)
14 Since therefore the children share flesh and blood--He, Himself, likewise shared the same things, so that through death He might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is the devil, 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by the fear of death.
YashaYahuw 25:7-8 He shall banish the pall of doom hanging over all peoples [fear of death], the shadow of doom darkening all nations [death]. Yes, He shall banish death forever! The Master YaHuWaH shall wipe away tears from off all faces. [Rev. 7:17] He shall take the reproach of His people away from off all the earth, for YaHuWaH has spoken it.
16 It is clear that YaHuWSHuWaH came not to help Messengers, but the descendants of Abraham. [Aramaic: For He did not assume (an immortal manifestation) from Messengers, but He assumed (a mortal manifestation) from Abraham.]
17 Therefore He had to become like His brothers in every respect, so that He might become a compassionate and merciful High kohen in the service of YaHuWaH, to make an expiation for the sins of the people. 18 Because He Himself was pressured by what He suffered, He is able to help those who are being pressured.
1 Therefore, my Set-apart Brothers who are called with a calling [WaYiqra - and He called] that is from heaven (called to serve YaHuWaH thru YaHuWSHuWaH), consider that YaHuWSHuWaH the Apostle and High Kohen (Kumrea - non Levitical kohen) of our confession, 2 was true to YaHuWaH, Who appointed Him, just as Moshah was true in all of YaHuWaH's House. 3 Yet YaHuWSHuWaH is worthy of more splendor than Moshah, just as a person who builds a fine house deserves more praise than the house itself. 4 For every house has a builder, but YaHuWaH is the One Who made everything.
5 Moshah was certainly faithful in YaHuWaH's House, but only as a servant. His work was an illustration of the truths YaHuWaH would reveal later. 6 But haMashiyach, the faithful Son, was in charge of the entire house. And we are YaHuWaH's House, if we keep up our courage and remain confident in our hope in haMashiyach. 7 That is why the Ruwach haQadosh says,
"Today you must listen to His Voice.
8 Don't harden your hearts against Him
as Ysra'al did when they rebelled,
when they tested YaHuWaH's patience in the wilderness.
9 There your ancestors tried My patience,
even though they saw My miracles for forty years.
10 So I was angry with them, and I said,
`Their hearts always turn away from Me.
They refuse to do what I tell them.'
11 So in My anger I made a vow:
`They will never enter My place of rest.' " Psalm 95:7-11
12 Be careful then, dear brothers. Make sure that your own hearts are not evil and unbelieving, turning you away from the living Aluhym. 13 You must warn each other every day, as long as it is called "today," so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against YaHuWaH. 14 For if we hold fast to the end, trusting YaHuWaH just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to haMashiyach. 15 But never forget the warning:
"Today you must listen to His Voice.
Don't harden your hearts against Him
as Ysra'al did when they rebelled."
16 And who were those people who rebelled against YaHuWaH, even though they heard His Voice? Weren't they the ones Moshah led out of Mitsrayim? 17 And who made YaHuWaH angry for forty years? Wasn't it the people who sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom was YaHuWaH speaking when He vowed that they would never enter His place of rest? He was speaking to those who disobeyed Him. 19 So we see that they were not allowed to enter His rest because of their unbelief.
1 YaHuWaH's promise of entering His place of rest still stands, so we ought to tremble with fear that some of you might fail to get there. 2 For this Besorah--that YaHuWaH has prepared a place of rest--has been announced to us just as it was to them. But it did them no towb because they did not believe what YaHuWaH told them. 3 For only we who believe can enter His place of rest. As for those who did not believe, YaHuWaH said,
"In My anger I made a vow:
`They will never enter My place of rest,' "
even though His place of rest has been ready since the disruption of the world. 4 We know it is ready because the Scriptures mention the seventh day, saying, "On the seventh day YaHuWaH rested from all His work." 5 But in the other passage YaHuWaH said, "They will never enter My place of rest." 6 So YaHuWaH's rest is there for people to enter. But those who formerly heard the Besorah failed to enter because they disobeyed YaHuWaH. 7 So YaHuWaH set another time for entering His place of rest, and that time is today. YaHuWaH announced this through Dawiyd a long time later in the words already quoted:
"Today you must listen to His voice.
Don't harden your hearts against Him."
8 This new place of rest was not the land of Kena'an, where Yahuwshua led them. If it had been, YaHuWaH would not have spoken later about another day of rest. 9 So there still is a Shabbath-keeping (it is therefore the duty of the people of YaHuWaH to keep the Shabbath.) for the people of YaHuWaH. 10 For all who enter into YaHuWaH's rest will find rest from their labors, just as YaHuWaH rested after creating the world. 11 Let us do our best to enter that place of rest. For anyone who disobeys YaHuWaH, as the people of Ysra'al did, will fall. (the weekly Shabbath rest is a type of the Millennial seventh-thousandth day rest - and THE SIGN that we love and follow Him.)
12 Indeed the Word of YaHuWaH is living and active, sharper than any two edged sword, piercing until it divides soul from ruwach, joints from marrow; it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 Nothing in all creation can hide from Him. Everything is naked and exposed before His eyes. This is the Aluhym to Whom we must render an account.
14 Since, then, we have a great High Kohen [Kumrea] Who has passed through the heavens, YaHuWSHuWaH the Son of YaHuWaH, let us hold fast to our confession. 15 For we do not have a High Kohen Who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have One Who has in every respect been pressured as we are, yet apart from sin. 16 Let us therefore approach boldly the throne of favor, that we may receive mercy and find favour to help in time of need.
1 Every high kohen chosen from mortals is put in charge of things pertaining to YaHuWaH on their behalf, to offer gifts and offerings for sins. 2 And because he is human, he is able to humble himself with the people, though they are ignorant and wayward. For he is subject to the same weaknesses they have, and because of this, 3 he has to offer slaughters, both for his own sins and the sins of the people. 4 And no one can become a high kohen simply because he wants such an honor. He has to be called by YaHuWaH for this work, just as Aharon was.
5 That is why haMashiyach did not exalt Himself to become High Kohen (Kumrea - non Levitical kohen). No, He was chosen by YaHuWaH, Who said to Him,
"You are My Son.
Today I have begotten You. "
6 And in another passage YaHuWaH said to Him,
"You are a kohen [Kumrea] forever
in the order of Melekiy-Tsedeq."
7 Likewise when He was clothed in the flesh, YaHuWSHuWaH offered up prayers and supplications with a loud cries and tears, to the One Who could deliver Him out of death. And YaHuWaH heard His prayers because of His reverent submission. 8 So even though YaHuWSHuWaH was YaHuWaH's Son, He learned obedience from the things He suffered. 9 In this way, YaHuWaH qualified Him as a perfect High Kohen (Kumrea - non Levitical kohen), and He became the source of eternal deliverance for all those who obey Him. 10 And YaHuWaH designated Him to be a High Kohen in the line of Melekiy-Tsedeq.
11 About this person Melekiy-Tsedeq, we have much more to say that is hard to explain, since you have become impeded in your hearing. 12 For though by this time and you ought to be teaching others. Instead, you need someone to teach you again the basic elements of the oracles of YaHuWaH. You need milk not solid food;13 for everyone who lives, being still an infant, is unskilled in the Word of righteousness. 14 But solid food is for the mature, for those whose faculties have been trained by practice to distinguish towb from evil.
1 Therefore, let us leave the elementary teachings about the beginnings of Mashiyach, and continue on to its perfection, laying the foundation of (1) repentance from dead works, and of (2) belief toward Aluhym, (3) of immersion, (4) teachings and of the (5) laying on of a hands, and of the (6) resurrection from the dead, and of (7) everlasting judgement. 3 And we will do this if Master YaHuWaH permits. (corrected according to Original Hebrew Version)
The Hebrew version reads differently: "Therefore it is time to leave the word concerning the telling of the beginning of the life of Messiah; for so we grow in maturity to move again to establish a foundation of (1)repentance from dead works by (2) belief in Elohim. [A foundation] (3) of immersions, (4) of teaching, (5) of laying on of hands, (6) of resurrection from the dead and from (7) everlasting judgment."
In the Hebrew version of Hebrews one leaves the mere study of the life of Messiah and moves onto maturity by establishing a foundation of seven areas that move us on to maturity.
Now this is a big difference. The Greek text says that we should "leave the principles of the doctrine of Messiah" ?!?! while the Hebrew only says that we should move beyond a mere study of the life of Messiah.
The Greek points us to move on from a study of six items while the Hebrew tells us we should continue in studying seven items. Of course in the Scriptures seven is normally the number of perfection while six is generally the number of man (created on the sixth day) and imperfection.
The Greek translator mistook the phrase "of immersions, of teaching" as "of teachings of immersions" (i.e. of doctrines of baptisms) thus leaving out "teaching/study" as one of seven foundational items that help us move onto maturity.
The Hebrew points us in the direction of maturity while the Greek tells us that the very things we need to grow in maturity are things we should leave behind (and leaves out "teaching" entirely).
4 But they who have once descended to immersion and have tasted the Heavenly Gift, and received the Ruwach haQadosh, 5 who have tasted the towb Word of YaHuWaH, and the Power of the Age to come-- 6 cannot again sin, and a second time be renewed to repentance; or a second time execute Him on the stake, and insult the Son of YaHuWaH.
7 When the ground soaks up the rain that falls on it repeatedly and bears a towb crop for the farmer, it has the blessing of YaHuWaH. 8 But if it should put forth thorns and briars, it would be discarded and be approaching closely to a curse, and its end would be a conflagration.
9 Dear friends, even though we are talking like this, we really don't believe that it applies to you. We are confident that you are meant for better things, things that come with deliverance. 10 For YaHuWaH is not unfair. He will not forget how hard you have worked for Him and how you have shown your love to Him by caring for other Set-apart ones, as you still do. 11 Our great desire is that you will keep right on loving others as long as hai lasts, in order to make certain that what you hope for will come true. 12 Then you will not become sluggish and indifferent. Instead, you will follow the example of those who are going to inherit YaHuWaH's promises because of their belief and patience.
13 For example, there was YaHuWaH's promise to Abraham. Since there was no one greater to swear by, YaHuWaH took an oath in His Own Name, saying:
14 "I will certainly bless you ,
and multiplying, I will multiply you."
15 Then Abraham waited patiently, and he received what YaHuWaH had promised.
16 When people take an oath, they call on someone greater than themselves to hold them to it. And without any question that oath is binding. 17 Therefore, Aluhym, being abundantly willing to show to the heirs of the promise that His promising was irreversible, bound it up in an oath. 18 So YaHuWaH has given us both His promise and His oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for YaHuWaH to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to Him for refuge can take new courage, for we can hold on to His promise with confidence. [... the righteous one by his certainty of Me shall live ...."]
19 This confidence is like a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain of heaven into YaHuWaH's inner Tent. 20 YaHuWSHuWaH has already gone in there for us. He has become our eternal High Kohen in the likeness of Melekiy-Tsedeq.
1 This Melekiy-Tsedeq was king of the city of Shalom and also a kohen of YaHuWaH Most High. When Abraham was returning home after the slaughter of the kings, Melekiy-Tsedeq met him and blessed him. 2 Then Abraham took a tenth of all he had won in the battle and gave it to Melekiy-Tsedeq. His name means "king of righteousness." He is also "king of peace" because Shalom means "peace." 3 Without father without mother, without genealogy, nor beginning of days, nor having end of hai, but like the Son of YaHuWaH, His kohen-hood remains forever.
The kohen-hood of Melekiy-Tsedeq was before the kohen-hood of Aharon and Torah and takes precedence over it - and it points to YaHuWSHuWaH and His kohen-hood which is permanent.)
4 See how great this Melekiy-Tsedeq was. Even Abraham, the great patriarch of Ysra'al, recognized how great he was by giving him a tenth of what he had taken in battle. 5 Now the kohenim, who are descendants of Lewi, are commanded in the Torah of Moshah to collect a tithe from all the people, even though they are their own relatives. 6 But Melekiy-Tsedeq, who was not even related to Lewi, collected a tenth from Abraham. And Melekiy-Tsedeq placed a blessing upon Abraham, the one who had already received the promises of YaHuWaH! 7 And without question, the person who has the power to bless is always greater than the person who is blessed.
8 In the case of Yahuwdim kohenim, tithes are paid to men who will die. But Melekiy-Tsedeq is greater than they are, because we are told that he lives on. 9 In addition, we might even say that Lewi's descendants, the ones who collect the tithe, paid a tithe to Melekiy-Tsedeq through their ancestor Abraham. 10 For although Lewi wasn't born yet, the seed from which he came was in Abraham's loins when Melekiy-Tsedeq collected the tithe from him.
11 Now if perfection had been attainable through the Lewitical kohen-hood - for the people received the Torah under this kohen-hood - what further need would there have been to speak of another kohen arising according to the order of Melekiy-Tsedeq, rather than one according to the order of Lewi and Aaron?
12 So as there is a change in the kohen-hood, so also is there a change in the instructions (to the kohen-hood). 13 For the One we are talking about belongs to a different tribe, whose members do not serve at the altar. 14 What I mean is, our Master came from the tribe of Yahuwdah, and Moshah never mentioned Yahuwdah in connection with the kohen-hood.
15 The change in YaHuWaH's instruction (to the kohen-hood) is even more evident from the fact that a different kohen, Who is like Melekiy-Tsedeq, has now come. 16 He became a kohen, not by meeting the old requirement of belonging to the tribe of Lewi, but by the Power of an indestructible hai. 17And the psalmist pointed this out when he said of haMashiyach,
"You are an age-abiding kohen after
the order of Melekiy-Tsedeq."
18 Yes, the old requirement about the kohen-hood was set aside because it was weak and useless. 19 For the (slaughtering) instruction (of the Aaronic kohenim) made nothing perfect, and now a better hope has taken its place. And that is how we draw near to YaHuWaH.
20 YaHuWaH took an oath that haMashiyach would always be a kohen [Kumrea], but He never did this for any other kohen. 21 Only to YaHuWSHuWaH did He say,
" YaHuWaH has taken an oath
and will not break His vow:
`You are an age-abiding kohen.' "
22 Because of YaHuWaH's oath, it is YaHuWSHuWaH Who guarantees the effectiveness of this superior covenant (should be kohen-hood - context demands it.). (All of YirmeYahuw 31- especially vs. 31-34)
23 Another difference is that there were many kohenim under the old system. When one kohen died, another had to take his place. 24 But YaHuWSHuWaH holds His kohen-hood permanently; because He abides into the Ages and beyond. 25 Therefore He is able for all time to save those who approach YaHuWaH through Him, since He lives into the Ages to make intercession for them.
26 For it is fitting that we should have such a High Kohen, Pure, Blameless, Undefiled, Separate from sinners, and Exalted above the heavens. 27 Unlike the other high kohenim, He has no need to offer offerings day after day, first for His own sins and then for the sins of the people. This, YaHuWSHuWaH did once for all when He offered Himself . 28 For the Torah appointed flawed men as kohenim those who are subject to weakness, but the Word of the oath, which was subsequent to Torah, appoints a Son Who as been made perfect forever.
1 Here is the main point: We have such a High Kohen, Who is seated at the right hand of the throne of Majesty in heaven. 2 There He serves in the Set Apart Place and of the true Tent, which YaHuWaH set up and not man.
3 And since every high kohen is required to offer gifts and offerings, our High Kohen must make an offering, too. 4 If He were here on earth, He would not even be a kohen, since there already are kohenim who offer the gifts required by the Torah of Moshah. (the hekal was still being used at this writing) 5 They serve in a place of worship that is only a copy, a shadow of the real one in heaven. For when Moshah was getting ready to build the Tabernacle, YaHuWaH gave him this warning: "Be sure that you make everything according to the pattern I have shown you here on the mountain." 6 But our High Kohen, YaHuWSHuWaH, has been given a ministry that is far superior to the ministry of those who serve under the old laws, for He is the One Who guarantees for us a better covenant with YaHuWaH, based on better promises.
7 If the first (covenant) had been faultless, there would have been no need to look for a second to replace it. 8 But finding fault with them YaHuWaH Himself said:
"The day will come, says YaHuWaH,
when I will make a fresh covenant
with the people of Ysra'al and Yahuwdah.
This covenant will not be like the one
I made with their ancestors
when I took them by the hand
and led them out of the land of Mitsrayim.
They did not remain faithful to My covenant,
so I turned My back on them, says YaHuWaH.
But this is the covenant I will make
with the people of Ysra'al on That Day, says YaHuWaH:
I will put My Torah in their minds
so they will understand them,
and I will write them on their hearts
so they will obey them.
I will be their Aluhym,
and they will be My people. (YirmeYahuw 31:31-34)
And they will not need to teach their neighbors,
nor will they need to teach their family,
saying, `You should know YaHuWaH.'
For everyone, from the least to the greatest,
will already know Me.
And I will be merciful toward their iniquities,
and I will remember their sins no more."
13 When YaHuWaH speaks of a new covenant, it means He has made the first one old; and that which is old and decaying, is near to disappearing. (the sinful nature of man that breaks the Torah - not Torah! AENT)
1 Now in that first covenant between YaHuWaH and Ysra'al, there were regulations for worship and a kodesh tent here on earth. 2 There were two rooms in this tent. In the first room were a lampstand, a table, and loaves of Set-Apart bread on the table. This was called the Miqdash. 3 Then there was a curtain, and behind the curtain was the second room called the Qadosh Qedoshim (Set Apart of the Set-Aparts), 4 to which belonged the golden censor, and the Ark of the Covenant overlaid on all sides with gold, in which were the golden urn that held the manna, and the rod of Aharon that budded, and Tablets of the Covenant. 5 The cherubim of splendor were above the Ark. Their wings were stretched out over the Ark's cover, the place of atonement. But we cannot explain all of these things now. (Rev. 9:13 The sixth messenger blew his trumpet. I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before YaHuWaH …. this would be in the Qadosh Qedoshim (Set Apart of the Set-Aparts) the second room where only the High Priest could enter but once a year on Yom Kippur) …. Shemoth 30:1-10 places the altar of incense just outside the curtain that separated the Qedoshim from the Most Qedoshim …. but since Yahuwshuwah's death when the veil was torn - the altar of incense that is symbolic of the prayers of the saints - is now in the Most Qedoshim - which is before YaHuWaH !!!
6 When these things were all in place, the kohenim went in and out of the first room regularly as they performed their services. 7 But only the high kohen goes into the Most Set-apart Place, and only once a year, and always with blood, which he offers to YaHuWaH to cover his own sins and the sins the people have committed in ignorance. 8 By these regulations the Ruwach haQadosh revealed that the Most Set-apart Place was not open to the people as long as the first room and the entire system it represents were still in use.
9 This is a parable pointing to the present time. For the gifts and slaughters that the kohenim offer are not able to cleanse the consciences of the people who bring them. 10 For that old system deals only with food and drink and ritual washing--external regulations that are in effect only until their limitations can be corrected.
11 So haMashiyach has now become the High Kohen over all the towb things He has created. He has entered that great, perfect Tent in heaven, not made by human hands and not part of this created world. 12 Once for all time He took blood into that Most Set-apart Place, but not the blood of goats and calves. He took His Own blood, and with it He obtained eternal redemption.
13 Under the old system, the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a young heifer could cleanse people's bodies from ritual defilement. (Bemidbar 19:1-13) 14 Just think how much more the blood of haMashiyach will purge our hearts from dead works that lead to death so that we can worship the living Aluhym. For by the Power of the Eternal Ruwach, haMashiyach offered Himself to YaHuWaH as a perfect slaughter for our sins. 15 That is why He is the One Who mediates the New Covenant between YaHuWaH and people, so that all who are called/invited can receive the eternal inheritance YaHuWaH has promised them. For haMashiyach died to set them free from the penalty of the sins they had committed under that first covenant.
16 Now when someone dies and leaves a will, no one gets anything until it is proved that the person who wrote the will is dead. 17 The will goes into effect only after the death of the person who wrote it. While the person is still alive, no one can use the will to get any of the things promised to them.
18 That is why blood was required under the first covenant as a proof of death. 19 For after Moshah had given the people all of YaHuWaH's Torah, he took the blood of calves and goats, along with water, and sprinkled both the book of the Torah and all the people, using branches of hyssop bushes and scarlet wool. 20 Then he said, "This blood confirms the Covenant YaHuWaH has made with you." 21And in the same way, he sprinkled blood on the kodesh tent and on everything used for worship. 22 In fact, we can say that according to the Torah of Moshah, nearly everything was purified by sprinkling with blood. Without the shedding of blood, there is no remission/release of sins.
[Bereshith 3:21 YaHuWaH Aluhym made coats of skins for Adam and for his wife, and clothed them.] (This implies that YaHuWaH performed the very first slaughter in the presence of Adam and Hawah. To typify the necessity to shed blood for the sin of disobedience and to "cover" [labash - H-3847] ones nakedness.)
23 That is why the earthly tent and everything in it--which were copies of things in heaven--had to be purified by the blood of animals. But the heavenly things themselves, with an Offering superior to them.
24 For haMashiyach has entered into heaven itself to appear now before YaHuWaH as our Advocate. He did not go into the earthly place of worship, for that was a copy of the real Hekal in heaven. 25 Nor did He enter heaven to offer Himself again and again, like the earthly high kohen who enters the Most Set-apart Place year after year to offer the blood of an animal. 26 If that had been necessary, He would have had to die again and again, ever since the disruption of the world. But now He has appeared once for all at the end of the ages* to put away sin by the offering of Himself.
(* the end of the ages of desolation and instruction ---- there are three 2000 yr. ages pictured in the Scriptures. 1st is the age of "tohu/desolation" - from Satan's rebellion and disruption of the world to Abraham, 2nd is the age of "instruction" from Abraham to birth of Yahuwshuwah, 3rd is the age of Mashiyach/Messiah which we are now in and is fast coming to an end. This age reaches to the beginning of the Millennium)
27 And just as it is destined that each person dies once and after that comes judgment, 28 so also haMashiyach having been once offered He bore away the sins of the many, and shall appear a second time, apart from sin, to those waiting for Him, unto deliverance.
YashaYahuw 27:12 It shall happen in That Day, that YaHuWaH shall thresh from the flowing stream of the River to the brook of Mitsrayim; and you shall be gathered one by one, children of Ysra'al. 27:13 It shall happen in That Day that a Great Shofar shall be blown; and those who were ready to perish in the land of Ashshuwr, and those who were outcasts in the land of Mitsrayim, shall come; and they shall worship YaHuWaH in the qodesh Mountain at Yahrushalayim. (gathering of the living Set Apart ones -----
Matt. 24:31& Marq 13:27 He shall send out His Messengers with the sound of the Great Shofar , and they shall gather together His chosen ones from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.
Yahuw'al 2:32 It will happen that whosoever shall call on the Name of YaHuWaH shall be delivered (saved); for in Mount Tsiyown and in Yahrushalayim there shall be those who escape [are delivered], as YaHuWaH has said, and in the remnant, those whom YaHuWaH shall call.
1The old system in the Torah of Moshah was only a shadow of the things to come, not the reality of the towb things haMashiyach has done for us. The offerings under the old system were repeated again and again, year after year, but they were never able to provide perfect cleansing for those who came to worship. 2 If they could have provided perfect cleansing, the slaughters would have stopped, for the worshipers would have been purified once for all time, and their feelings of guilt would have disappeared.
3 But just the opposite happened. Those yearly slaughters reminded them of their sins year after year. 4 For it is not possible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. 5 That is why haMashiyach, when He came into the world, said,
"You did not want animal slaughters and grain offerings.
But You have clothed Me with a body so that I may obey You.
6 No, You were not pleased with animals burned on the altar
or with other offerings for sin.
7 Then I said, "Behold I come, as it is written of Me in the beginning of the Books, to do Your will, O YaHuWaH" (Bereshith 3:15)
8 haMashiyach said, "You did not want animal offerings or grain offerings or animals burned on the altar or other offerings for sin, nor were You pleased with them" (though they are required by the Torah of Moshah). 9 Then He added, "Look, I have come to do Your will." He cancels the first in order to establish the second. 10 And what YaHuWaH wants is for us to be made Set Apart by the offering of the body of YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach a single time.
11 Under the old covenant, the kohen stands before the altar day after day, offering slaughters that can never take away sins. 12 But our High Kohen offered Himself to YaHuWaH as one slaughtering for sins, towb for all time. Then He sat down at the place of highest esteem at YaHuWaH's right-hand. 13 There He waits until His enemies are humbled as a footstool under His feet. 14 For by that one offering He perfected forever all those whom He is making Set Apart.
15 And the Ruwach haQadosh also testifies that this is so. First He says,
16 "This is the covenant I will make
with My people on That Day, says YaHuWaH:
I will put My Torah in their minds
and I will inscribe it on their hearts."
17 Then He adds,
"I will never again remember
their sins and Torah-less deeds."
18 Now when sins have been pardoned, there is no need to offer any more ascending offerings.
19 And so, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly enter heaven's Most Set-apart Place because of the blood of YaHuWSHuWaH. 20 This is the new hai-giving way that haMashiyach has consecrated for us through the veil that is His flesh, by means of His death for us.
21 And since we have a great High Kohen who rules over YaHuWaH's people, 22 let us go right into the presence of YaHuWaH, with true hearts fully trusting Him. For our evil consciences have been sprinkled with haMashiyach's blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water.
23 Without wavering, let us hold tightly to the hope we say we have, for YaHuWaH can be trusted to keep His promise. 24 Think of ways to encourage one another with outbursts of love and towb deeds. 25 And let us not neglect our assembling together, as some people do, but encourage and warn each other, especially now that the day of His coming back again is drawing near.
(The assembling of ourselves together refers to the Mikra Qadosheem in Wayikra (and He Called), Lewiticus 23, the Set Apart assemblies; Shabbats and Moedeem (Appointed Times) of The Almighty Qadosh-One of Ysra'al, YaHuWaH ALYON, YaHuWaH The Most High WHO WAS, AND IS, AND IS TO COME - we do not forsake the assembling together at the appointed times which bear witness to: the death of haMashiyach YaHuWSHuWaH, Passover; The Resurrection of Messiah YaHuWSHuWaH, Bikkurim or First Fruits; The receiving of the Kadosh Ruwach, Shabuot (Pentecost); and the fulfillment of the Fall Appointed times.) AENT
26 Dear friends, if we deliberately continue sinning after we have received a full knowledge of the truth, there is no other offering that will cover these sins. 27 There will be nothing to look forward to but the terrible expectation of YaHuWaH's judgment and the raging fire that will consume His enemies. 28 Anyone who refused to obey the Torah of Moshah was put to death without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 Think how much more terrible the punishment will be for those who have trampled/tromped on the Son of YaHuWaH and have treated the blood of the Covenant as if it were common and un-Set Apart. Such people have insulted and enraged the Ruach haQadosh Who brings YaHuWaH's mercy to His people.
[Bemidbar 15:27 “‘If one person sins unwittingly, then he shall offer a female goat a year old for a sin offering. 15:28 The kohen shall make atonement for the soul who errs, when he sins unwittingly, before YaHuWaH, to make atonement for him; and he shall be pardoned. 15:29 You shall have one law for him who does anything unwittingly, for him who is native-born among the children of Ysra'al, and for the stranger who lives as a foreigner among them.
15:30 “‘But the soul who does anything with a high hand, whether he is native-born or a foreigner, the same blasphemes YaHuWaH; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people. 15:31 Because he has despised the Word of YaHuWaH, and has broken His commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his iniquity shall be on him.’”]
30 For we know the One Who said,
"I will take vengeance.
I will repay those who deserve it."
He also said,
" YaHuWaH will judge His Own people."
31 It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living Aluhym.
32 Therefore, recall the former days, those in which you received immersion and how you remained faithful even though it meant terrible suffering. 33 Sometimes you were exposed to public ridicule and were beaten, and sometimes you helped others who were suffering the same things. 34 You suffered along with those who were thrown into jail. When all you owned was taken from you, you accepted it with joy. You knew you had better things waiting for you in eternity.
35 Do not cast away, therefore, your confidence, which has great recompense of reward. 36 For you have need of patience, that after you have done the will of Aluhym, you might receive the promise.
37 "For yet in a little while,
He that is to come, will come, and will not tarry.
(He Who IS, Who Was, and Who IS to Come - Rev. 1:4)
38 And a righteous person will live by belief. (And a righteous one by his certainty of Me will live.)
But I will have no pleasure in anyone who turns away."
39 But we are not like those who turn their backs on YaHuWaH and seal their fate. We have trust that assures our deliverance.
1 What is belief? It is the confident assurance that what we expect is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see. 2 YaHuWaH gave His approval to people in days of old because of their belief.
3 By belief we understand that the Ages were prepared by the Word of Aluhym, and that things seen originated from those not seen.
4 It was by belief that Habel brought a more acceptable offering to YaHuWaH than Qayin did. YaHuWaH accepted Habel's offering to show that he was a righteous man. And although Habel is long dead, he still speaks to us because of his belief.
5 It was by belief that Enoch was transferred/transported and did not taste death; and he was not found because Aluhym had transferred/transported him." But before he was transferred/transported, he was approved as pleasing to YaHuWaH. 6 So, you see, it is impossible to please YaHuWaH without belief. Anyone who wants to come to Him must believe that HE IS, (YaHuWaH-IS) and that He rewards those who sincerely seek Him.
7 It was by belief that Noah built an ark to save his family from the flood. He obeyed YaHuWaH, Who warned him about something that had never happened before. By his belief he condemned the rest of the world and was made-right in YaHuWaH's sight.
8 It was by belief that Abraham obeyed when YaHuWaH called him to leave home and go to another Land that YaHuWaH would give him as his inheritance. He went without knowing where he was going. 9 And even when he reached the Land YaHuWaH promised him, he lived there by belief--for he was like a foreigner, living in a tent. And so did Yitshaq and Ya'aqob, to whom YaHuWaH gave the same promise. 10 For he looked for the city that has a foundation of which the builder and maker is YaHuWaH. (Rev. 21)
11 It was by belief that Sarah together with Abraham was able to have a child, even though they were too old and Sarah was barren. Abraham believed that YaHuWaH would keep His promise. 12 And so a whole nation came from this one man, Abraham, who was too old to have any children--a nation with so many people that, like the stars of the sky and the sand on the seashore, there is no way to count them.
13 In belief all these died without receiving what YaHuWaH had promised them, but they saw it all from a distance and welcomed the promises of YaHuWaH. They agreed that they were no more than foreigners and nomads here on earth. 14 And obviously people who talk like that are looking forward to a city they can call their own. 15 If they had meant the city they came from, they would have found a way to go back. 16 But they were looking for a better place, a heavenly city. That is why YaHuWaH is not ashamed to be called their Aluhym, for He has prepared a heavenly city for them.
17 It was by belief that Abraham offered Yitshaq as a offering when YaHuWaH was testing him. Abraham, who had received YaHuWaH's promises, was ready to offer up his only son, Yitshaq, 18 though YaHuWaH had promised him, "Yitshaq is the son through whom your descendants will be counted." 19 Abraham assumed that if Yitshaq died, YaHuWaH was able to bring him back to hai again. And in a sense, Abraham did receive his son back from the dead.
20 It was by belief that Yitshaq blessed his two sons, Ya'aqob and Esaw. He had confidence in what YaHuWaH was going to do in the future.
21 It was by belief that Ya'aqob, when he was old and dying, blessed each of Yoseph's sons and bowed in worship as he leaned on his staff.
22 And it was by belief that Yoseph, when he was about to die, confidently spoke of YaHuWaH's bringing the people of Ysra'al out of Mitsrayim. He was so sure of it that he commanded them to carry his bones with them when they left!
23 It was by belief that Moshah's parents hid him for three months. They saw that YaHuWaH had given them an unusual child, and they were not afraid of what the king might do.
24 It was by belief that Moshah, when he grew up, refused to be treated as the son of Pharaoh's daughter. 25 He chose to share the oppression of YaHuWaH's people instead of enjoying the fleeting pleasures of sin. 26 He thought it was better to suffer for the sake of haMashiyach than to own the treasures of Mitsrayim, for he was looking ahead to the great reward that YaHuWaH would give him. 27 It was by belief that Moshah left the land of Mitsrayim. He was not afraid of the king. Moshah kept right on going because he kept his eyes on the One Who is invisible. 28 It was by belief that Moshah commanded the people of Ysra'al to keep the Passover and to sprinkle blood on the doorposts so that the Messenger of death would not touch their firstborn sons.
29 It was by belief that the people of Ysra'al went right through the Red Sea as though they were on dry ground. But when the Mitsrites followed, they were all drowned.
30 It was by belief that the people of Ysra'al marched around Yericho seven days, and the walls came crashing down.
31 It was by belief that Rahab the prostitute did not die with all the others in her city who refused to obey YaHuWaH. For she had given a friendly welcome to the spies.
32 Well, how much more do I need to say? It would take too long to recount the stories of the belief of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Yephthah, Dawiyd, Shemu'el, and all the prophets. 33 By belief these people overthrew kingdoms, ruled with justice, and received what YaHuWaH had promised them. They shut the mouths of lions, 34 quenched the flames of fire, and escaped death by the edge of the sword. Their weakness was turned to strength. They became strong in battle and put whole armies to flight. 35 Women received their loved ones back again from death.
But others trusted YaHuWaH and were tortured, preferring to die rather than turn from YaHuWaH and be free. They placed their hope in the resurrection to a better hai. 36 Some were mocked, and their backs were cut open with whips. Others were chained in dungeons. 37 Some died by stoning, and some were sawed in half; others were killed with the sword. Some went about in skins of sheep and goats, hungry and oppressed and mistreated. 38 They were too towb for this world. They wandered over deserts and mountains, hiding in caves and holes in the ground.
39 All of these people we have mentioned received YaHuWaH's approval because of their belief, yet none of them received all that YaHuWaH had promised. 40 For YaHuWaH had far better things in mind for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us.
1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the hai of belief, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily hinders our progress. And let us run with endurance the race that YaHuWaH has set before us. 2 We do this by keeping our eyes on YaHuWSHuWaH, the Author (Aleph (a) ) and Finisher (Taw (t)) of the belief; (Rev. :1:8, 1:11, 21:6, 22:13 & Bereshiyth 1:1) Who for the joy that was set before Him endured the stake, despising the shame, and now He is seated in the place of highest splendor beside YaHuWaH's throne in heaven. 3 Behold, therefore, how much He suffered from sinners, for they were adversaries of their own selves, that you may not be discouraged nor your self become remiss. 4 You have not yet come to blood in the contest against sin.
5 And have you entirely forgotten the encouraging words YaHuWaH spoke to you, His children? He said,
"My child, don't ignore it when YaHuWaH disciplines you,
and don't be discouraged when He corrects you.
6 For YaHuWaH disciplines those He loves,
and He punishes those He accepts as His children."
7 As you endure this discipline, remember that YaHuWaH is treating you as His own children. Whoever heard of a child who was never disciplined? 8 If YaHuWaH doesn't discipline you as He does all of His children, it means that you are illegitimate and are not really His children after all. 9 Since we respect our earthly fathers who disciplined us, should we not all the more cheerfully submit to the discipline of our Ruwachual Father, and live forever?
10 For our earthly fathers disciplined us for a few years, doing the best they knew how. But YaHuWaH's discipline is always right and towb for us because it means we may become partakers of His Set-apart Ruwach. 11 No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening--it is painful! But afterward there will be a quiet harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way.
12 So take a new grip with your tired hands and stand firm on your shaky legs. 13 Mark out a straight path for your feet. Then those who follow you, though they are weak and lame, will not stumble and fall but will become strong.
14 Try to live in peace with everyone, and seek to live a clean and Set Apart hai, for those who are not Set Apart will not see YaHuWaH. 15 Look after each other so that none of you will miss out on the special favor of YaHuWaH. Watch out that no bitter root of unbelief rises up among you, for whenever it springs up, many are corrupted by its poison. 16 Make sure that no one is immoral or profane like Esau. He traded his birthright as the oldest son for a single meal. 17 And afterward, when he wanted his father's blessing, he was rejected though he sought the blessing with bitter tears, he could not change what he had done.
18 You have not come to a physical mountain, to a place of flaming fire, darkness, gloom, and whirlwind, as the Ysra'elites did at Mount Sinai when YaHuWaH gave them His Torah. 19 For they heard an awesome trumpet blast and a Voice with a message so terrible that they begged YaHuWaH to stop speaking. 20 They staggered back under YaHuWaH's command: "If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned to death." 21 Moshah himself was so frightened at the sight that he said, "I am terrified and trembling."
22 No, you have come to Mount Tsiyown, to the city of the living Aluhym, the heavenly Yahrushalayim, and to thousands of Messengers in joyful assembly. 23 You have come to the assembly of YaHuWaH's firstborn children, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to YaHuWaH Himself, Who is the Judge of all people. And you have come to the ruwach of righteous men made perfect. 24 You have come to YaHuWSHuWaH, the One Who mediates the New Covenant between YaHuWaH and people, and to the sprinkled blood, which graciously pardons instead of crying out for vengeance as the blood of Habel did.
25 Take heed not to refuse the One speaking. For if those did not escape who refused the warning on earth, much less we who turn away from Him from heaven, 26 Whose voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised, saying, " Yet once more I shall shake not only the earth but the heavens also." 27 And this " Yet once more," makes clear the removal of what is shaken - as having been made - so that the unshaken matters might remain.
28 Since we are receiving a Kingdom that cannot be destroyed, let us be thankful and please YaHuWaH by worshiping Him with Set Apart fear and awe. 29 For our Aluhym is a consuming fire.
1 Continue to love each other with true Natsarim love. 2 Don't forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained Messengers without realizing it! 3 Don't forget about those in prison. Suffer with them as though you were there yourself. Share the sorrow of those being mistreated, as though you feel their pain in your own bodies.
4 Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. YaHuWaH will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery.
5 Stay away from the love of money; be satisfied with what you have. For YaHuWaH has said,
"I will never fail you.
I will never forsake you."
6 That is why we can say with confidence,
" YaHuWaH is my helper,
so I will not fear.
What can mere mortals do to me?"
7 Remember your leaders who first taught you the Word of YaHuWaH. Think of all the towb that has come from their lives, and trust YaHuWaH as they do.
8 YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach is the same yesterday, today, and unto the ages to come. 9 So do not be attracted by strange, new ideas. Your spiritual strength comes from YaHuWaH's special favor, not from ceremonial rules about food, which don't help those who follow them.
10 We have an altar from which the kohenim in the hekal on earth have no right to eat. (This is the altar where the Red Heifer slaughter took place on the Mt. of Olives - none could eat of her flesh - she had to be burned completely up) 11 Under the system of Yahuwdish laws, the high kohen brought the blood of animals into the Set-apart Place as a offering for sin, but the bodies of the animals were burned outside the camp. 12 So also YaHuWSHuWaH suffered and died outside the gate in order to make His people Set Apart by shedding His own blood. 13 So let us go out to Him without the camp and bear the disgrace He bore. 14 For this world is not our home; we are looking forward to our city in heaven, which is yet to come.
(Outside the Camp and Outside the Gate are euphemisms for the Mt. of Olives - the 'gate' being referred to is the Eastern Gate that led to the Mt. of Olives)
15 With YaHuWSHuWaH's help, let us continually offer our offering of praise to YaHuWaH by proclaiming the Splendor of His Name. 16 Don't forget to do towb and to share what you have with those in need, for such offerings are very pleasing to YaHuWaH.
17 Obey your ruwachual leaders and do what they say. Their work is to watch over your being, and they know they are accountable to YaHuWaH. Give them reason to do this joyfully and not with sorrow. That would certainly not be for your benefit.
18 Pray for us, for our conscience is clear and we want to live honorably in everything we do. 19 I especially need your prayers right now so that I can come back to you soon.
20-21 And now, may the shalom of YaHuWaH, Who brought again from the dead our Master YaHuWSHuWaH, equip you with all you need for doing His will. May He produce in you, through the Power of YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach, all that is pleasing to Him. YaHuWSHuWaH is the great Shepherd of the sheep by an everlasting Covenant, signed with His blood. To Him be Splendor forever and ever. Amein.
22 I urge you, dear brothers and sisters, please listen carefully to what I have said in this brief letter.
23 I want you to know that our brother Timothy is now out of jail. If he comes here soon, I will bring him with me to see you.
24 Give my greetings to all your leaders and to the other believers there. The Natsarims from Italy send you their greetings.
25 May YaHuWaH's favour be with you all.
