Bo Ruach Elohim Lyrics Daniel Kopp and Sarah Liberman
Now we know that we have come to know Him by this—if we keep His commandments. The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God is truly made perfect. We know that we are in Him by this—whoever claims to abide in Him must walk just as He walked.
~1 John 2:3-6 (TLV)
The depravity of modern Christianity never ceases to amaze me, but I have to sit and wonder why those who profess Yeshua is their Messiah fail to build their walk of faith on passages like this one. Could it be more clear? If you claim to be saved, call yourself a Christian, say that Yeshua is your Messiah (or even that ‘Jesus’ is your Savior), but do not keep the commandments—that would be Father’s Torah—you are a liar and the truth is not in you. If you want to know if you are in Him, the real Messiah Yeshua, then you walk as He walked.
So, shouldn’t we take a look at who He was and how He lived?
Most of the time when I hear Christians refer to a passage like this opening text, if they do at all, they are trying to spin it to say something that offended them is “not very Christ-like”. I often wonder if these people ever read The Bible at all, even just the Gospels, when they make statements like this.
The Gospel of John, Jesus' seventh sign, Part 29
This is a clear recognition of God’s sovereignty and of the law of devotion. The disciples had been chosen by God and entrusted to Jesus’ authority. Therefore, Jesus had chosen them, He had manifested his “name” (i.e., nature) to them, and He had trained them with the word (logos). Jesus Himself was the Logos (John 1:1), which manifested His name/nature, and this was given to the disciples, so that they might know Him and keep His word.
The Gospel of John, Jesus' seventh sign, Part 28
Having completed His final teaching, Jesus then prayed for His somber disciples in John 17 just before crossing the Kidron ravine on the east side of the city (John 18:1). Perhaps they stood on the bridge that spanned the ravine and looked at the monuments and whitewashed sepulchers among olive trees clearly visible in the light of the Passover moon.
The Epistles of Paul - Ephesians Part 5: Speaking the Truth with Love
As we have already discussed at length, throughout most of the first half of this epistle to the Ephesians Paul of Tarsus had explained to them why they should be Christians, because they were indeed of the descendants of Abraham through Jacob Israel, the very people who in the period of the Old Testament had been alienated from God and who were now being reconciled in Christ. Here in this fourth chapter Paul has begun to explain how they should…
The Epistles of Paul - Ephesians Part 6: Jesus Hates
WARNING: If you decide to read this teaching, you will find the first 3 paragraphs are harsh based on a report of a robbery and murder of a pastor by 2 black men. When he wrote I do not agree with. I just wanted to give the reader a heads up.
In the Gospel of Luke, Yahshua Christ is caught up in a dispute with the Pharisees which is described in Luke chapter 11, and then it says at the beginning of Luke 12: “In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.” With this, Christ gives a long discourse which includes…
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)

Climate Activists Smash 10 Climate Commandment Tablets On Mt. Sinai
Dawn broke crisp and clear over Mount Sinai on Sunday morning, as half a dozen climate activists gathered to adorn their cause with religious overtones. They chose the site based on its proximity to COP27, a global climate summit now underway at Sinai coastal resort Sharm El-Sheikh, but once chosen they couldn’t resist conscious parallels to Moses receiving the Old Covenant.
Faith Not Permitted In The Public Square: How One Christian Was Forced To Resign
Andrew Thorburn had no idea the whirlwind he was in for when he accepted the job of chief executive of Australian Football League club Essendon. He would be pressured to resign just over 24 hours after taking the job. At the center of this controversy was not a personal scandal nor an accusation of being unqualified — rather, it was his association with City on a Hill Church, where he served as chairman.
The Hour Is Later Than You Think – The Convergence Of Prophetic Signs
Statistics from a recent Ligonier Ministries survey finds: * 56% believe “God accepts the worship of all religions, including Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.” * 38% see Jesus as “a great teacher, but he was not God.” * 60% say “The Holy Spirit is a force but is not a personal being.” * 65% think “Everyone is born innocent in the eyes of God.” * 37% agree that “Religious belief is a matter of personal opinion; it is not about objective truth.” These beliefs don’t fit with what the Bible teaches, meaning those surveyed (who self-identified as “Evangelical Christians”) either haven’t read the Bible or they reject what it says. This “falling away” from the foundational beliefs of the Christian faith, by those who profess to be Christians, is an indication the world is on the verge of the seven-year Tribulation. The Bible says the Day of the Lord (the Tribulation) will not come and the Antichrist will not be revealed until “a great falling away” happens first (2 Thessalonians 2:3). Some translations call this “a rebellion” or “apostasy” – an abandonment of the faith by professed Christians. Do these survey responses indicate a great falling away? They seem to…
Euphrates River Drying Up: Preview To Bible Prophecy Fulfillment
The region once known as the Fertile Crescent is on the verge of a food crisis as the main sources of water disappear. Officials struggle to cope as a prophetic scenario appears to materialize.
Iraqi officials are reporting that for three consecutive years, the rainy season has begun later and ended sooner than the historic norm. This has been coupled with less water flowing through its two main rivers, the Tigris and the Euphrates. The region has also been plagued by ongoing conflict.
It’s Time (To Fulfill Dr. Thomas Horn’s Vision And Build The Third Temple), Says Israeli Lawmaker
Yet another Member of Knesset has expressed his desire not only for Jews to be able to freely visit and express their faith atop Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, but for the Third Temple to be build “in our days.” Member of Knesset Nissim Vaturi told an organization that advocates for building the Third Temple that “anyone who represents Israel cannot be disconnected from the Creator. We are all anticipating the Redemption.” Vaturi then openly recited the traditional Jewish prayer stating, “May we merit redeeming this place for the Shechina (holy presence) to dwell, and to build the Holy Temple quickly and in our days.” Jews are typically barred from praying atop the Temple Mount, but police officers present at the time did not prevent Vaturi from doing so. Some Palestinians are accusing Israel’s new Gulf state allies of helping the Jewish state lay the groundwork for the Third Temple.
