Adonai (Lyric Video) | Lize Hadassah Wiid | Born For Such a Time
Several have written to ask in some form essentially the same question: “My father (and/or mother) have only been abusive toward me my entire life in one way or another. Does that mean I still have to honor them?”
The short answer to that question is – “Yes.” The scripture makes no allowances for bad behavior on the part of the parents other than for the separation from the Present Presence, they incur as a result of their actions. The English word translated as “honor” comes from the Hebrew word kabed which is found 376 times in the Tanakh (OT). It is used over half the time as a reference to describe a “weighty” person in society, someone who is honorable, impressive, worthy of respect. But it also carries within its definition a person who is “insensible, dull, grievous, hard, burdensome.” Notice, however, that the promise contained within that Word is one that benefits YOU – not them. It benefits you because you are upholding YHVH’s Word in the face of whatever egregious circumstances to have been or are currently occurring and, as a result, you can expect to live a long life. That does not mean the parents become exempt from the laws of men. Only that they are to recognized as the source of your life and treated with the respect that deserves.
We saw in the article, Unequally Yoked how Yeshua said that “a person’s enemies will be those of his own household” (Matthew 10:34-38). But, notice here that He did NOT say to “hate” them – reinforcing to honor them regardless of what state they are in. I can only speak for myself in sharing that when my then 86 year old mother fell and broke her neck, YHVH instructed me to leave Israel behind and come back to the States to live with her to care for her. She was as obstinate toward the Truth as anyone could be, never missing an opportunity to tell me how “crazy” I was to keep YHVH’s Words. One evening after about six months, being entirely frustrated by her ranting during the day, I went to the Father expressing my exasperation with her and asking Him what I should do – at this point being willing to do anything. He asked me, “haRold, just why did you move here with your mother?” Meekly I said, “To bless her.” To which He said, “why don’t you just do that and leave the rest to Me.” In an instant I saw that everything I thought I knew about servitude was just at a surface level. The words of Yeshua began to ring in my ears to, “love your enemies, do good to those that curse you and despitefully use you” (Luke 6:27-28). I had always wanted to apply those words to those outside my sphere of influence – not realizing they were to be given to those of my own family. Even though she never appreciated it, I stayed and honored my mother, caring for her until her death.
The Gospel of John, Jesus' seventh sign, Part 17
There were many things that Jesus did not tell His disciples ahead of time. Or if He did tell them, He used vague language so that they would not understand His meaning. He continues to do this even with us today. We often chafe at this, but when we look at the situation with Jesus’ disciples, we can see why Jesus did this.
It would have frightened or discouraged the disciples if they had known that Jesus would be crucified, instead of being crowned King of Judah. In the early days of their discipleship, they were too immature spiritually to handle such truth—even if they knew that He would be raised from the dead on the third day.
The Gospel of John, Jesus' seventh sign, Part 18
“Troubled” is from tarasso, “to be agitated, stirred up, to cause inward commotion.” Jesus had been troubled in John 11:33 when He saw people weeping at the tomb of Lazarus. He had been troubled in His soul when He began to speak of His impending death to His disciples in John 12:27. He was troubled in His spirit when He talked about His impending betrayal in John 13:21. Finally, in John 14:1 and 27 Jesus comforts His disciples in their commotion, as the reality of His leaving them took effect.
When Jesus died on the cross, His soul was “poured out unto death.” The fleshly (carnal) soul is in the blood, says Leviticus 17:11, and for this reason the blood of sacrifice was to be poured out upon the ground. The essence of sacrifice is to substitute the soul of the animal for the soul of the one offering sacrifice. Hence, they were not to drink blood, because God said, its purpose was “to make atonement for your souls.” The death of the body, in itself, was not the essence of atoning sacrifice. It was the death of the sacrificed soul that atoned for the soul of others.
The Gospel of John, Jesus' seventh sign, part 19
Jesus told His disciples that He was going away and that they would “follow later” (John 13:36). Peter thought He was talking about leaving to go to another earthly country, but Jesus was referring to His journey to the Father. He was to go ahead of them “to prepare a place” for them. When Thomas questioned Him further, Jesus told him, “I am the way, and the truth and the life.”
So it is plain that this was no ordinary journey. It was not a path that a fleshly man could travel, as if going from one town to another. It was a spiritual journey, patterned after Israel’s 40-year journey from Egypt to the Promised Land, a journey from Passover (“the way”) through Pentecost (“the truth”) and on into the feast of Tabernacles (“the life”).
PARANORMAL ENTITIES AND THIS OCTOBER’S HALLOWEEN (PART 1)—On The Boundaries of Our Physical Reality
Before we attempt to explore the fringes—and beyond—of our understanding of the physical universe (ghosts, aliens, vampires, etc.), it is of paramount importance to dispose of the baggage of our misconceptions and the mythology of what we have been erroneously taught in this age of deceit.
The puncturing of our delusions is what some might call “a painful blessing.” That sounds like an oxymoron, but it is absolutely vital for well-being, and a prerequisite for maturity.
Much of what we have been taught is in error: some from disproven myths, others from an agenda of politics and “political correctness.” In our current culture, even the very existence of “truth” has been abandoned rather than to persist in the search! When we don’t fully understand a phenomena, we wrap it in clichés and techni-speak. Metaphors reign where mysteries reside.
Paths of Old – Ancient Paths
Jeremiah 6:16; 18:15; Acts 15:21
“Thus said יהוה (Yahweh), “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and find rest for yourselves….” (Jeremiah 6:16)
“But My people have forgotten Me, they have burned incense to what is false, and they have stumbled from their ways, from the ancient paths, to walk in bypaths and not on a highway.” (Jeremiah 18:15)
Regular public reading of the Torah was introduced by Ezra the Scribe after the return of the Jewish people from their Babylonian captivity (c. 537 BCE), as described in the Book of Nehemiah 8. In the modern era, adherents of Orthodox Judaism practice Torah reading according to a set procedure they believe has remained unchanged in the two thousand years since the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem (70 CE).
“For from ancient generations Mosheh has, in every city, those proclaiming him – being read in the congregations every Sabbath.” (Acts 15:21)

Yom Teruah / Trumpets
Based on the above New Moon software, we should see the cresent New Moon at or shortly after sunset on September 27, 2022. This will be the beginning of Yom Teruah / Trumpets.
As you can see, we have 2 dark moons this month. The first cresent moon appears on September 27, 2022. It shold be at 2% full and visible.
The last New Moon was sighted on August 28, 2022 at sunset. Counting from August 29, 2022 to September 26, 2022 gives us 29 days. As we can see from the image above that we have a dark moon on that day. So, by default, the new Hebrew month of Tishri will begin at sunset on September 27, 2022 because a Hebrew month cannot be more than 30 days. This Scripture readings for this Feasts of Yahweh are as follows:

Lapid at UN: Israel will accept a Palestinian state on the condition it be peaceful
Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid declared his support for the two state solution while calling on the Palestinian Authority and the Arab world to make peace with Israel during his speech to the United Nations General Assembly Thursday.
Prime Minister Lapid began his speech by noting how far Israel has come in the seven decades since its founding, rising from the ashes of the Holocaust to become a world leader in many fields and technologies.
Did The Bible Predict Drone Swarm Technology?
While unmanned aerial vehicles such as the multi-million dollar General Atomics MQ-1 Predator are armed with missiles, a new generation of inexpensive “kamikaze” drones is reshaping the battlefield.
The US military worries that these low-cost and deadly-effective drones could shift the global strategic balance away from the US on the modern battlefield.
To counter such emerging threats, the Army decided to conduct a field training exercise involving “a swarm of 40 quadcopters all equipped with cameras, MILES, and lethal munition,” tweeted the Commanding General of the National Training Center and Fort Irwin.
THE AHRIMAN GATE (PART 29)—WHEN MOUNTAINS MOAN
n a hidden, out-of-the-way place inside Montero’s research facility, in a briefcase measuring just twenty-four by sixteen by eight inches thick, a tiny red light flashed on the fail-safe countdown detonator.
The marauding monsters didn’t have time to register the accompanying sound as a blinding fire equal to one hundred suns shot at the speed of light from the SAMM’s hypocenter.
In the blink of an eye, temperatures inside the lower complex reached ten million degrees Fahrenheit. The once-powerful beings, together with everything around them, were reduced in a flash to raw atomic material.
Kings Of The East Aim To Use AI Beast-Technology To ‘Control The Enemy’s Will’
China is pursuing a new concept of warfare that aims to deploy artificial intelligence to directly control the enemy’s will and subdue a nation without having to resort to conventional “hot” warfare. The idea of cognitive warfare may sound like science fiction to most people, writes Judith Bergman, and attorney, political analyst and senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute.
Collapse incoming: Pope Francis orders Holy See to transfer all assets to Vatican Bank to protect the Church’s finances
Pope Francis has ordered the Holy See to transfer all of its financial assets into the Institute for Works of Religion, commonly known as the Vatican Bank, by Oct. 1.
The Holy See is the central government of the Roman Catholic Church and falls under the episcopal jurisdiction of the pope in his capacity as the leader of the Catholic Church and the bishop of Rome.
Ben Armstrong, commenting on this news on his program “The Ben Armstrong Show,” noted that the pope’s order to get all of the Vatican’s financial holdings pooled together is a sign that an economic collapse is fast approaching. (Related: HOLY MONEY GRAB: Pope Francis imposes deadline for Holy See entities to deposit their assets with the Vatican Bank.)
Divine Coincidence? Red Heifers Arrive In Israel Before New Shmita Cycle Begins
A major prophetic event just happened, and hardly anyone in the United States is talking about it.
In recent years a group of western Christians known as Boneh Israel has been working with officials from the Temple Institute to search for a perfect red heifer. A red heifer is necessary if Temple sacrifices are to be reinstituted, but one hasn’t been seen in Israel for more than 2,000 years.
This is something that I have written about a few times over the years, because it directly relates to end times prophecies. For a long time, the search for a perfect red heifer seemed to be going nowhere, but now all of that has changed.
Is Beast Technology Prepping The Coming Of Antichrist?
Ancient powers and principalities didn’t die in the shipwreck of the old world, they just took on new forms. Today we can, in fact, still talk about these strange, underlying forces as long as we use the correct language. Take, for example, the Silicon Valley philosopher Kevin Kelly’s pet notion that technology has its own mind and its own purpose: that through the web of what he calls “the technium”, something is using us to create itself. Kelly sees technology growing into something self-aware and independent of its human creators, as he explained in his book What Technology Wants: “It may have once been as simple as an old computer program, merely parroting what we told it, but now it is more like a very complex organism that often follows its own urges.”
