ANCIENT HEBREW MARRIAGE CUSTOMS AND HOW THEY CORRESPOND TO THE ACTIONS OF YESHUA THE MESSIAH AS DESCRIBED IN THE SCRIPTURES

A huge thank you to “YHWH Yeshua & The Way” for allowing me to repost this study! More interesting threads, follow YHWH Yeshua & The Way on Twitter. The Scriptures identify the New Jerusalem and some of the followers of Messiah as a bride (the church of Philadelphia) and Yeshua the Messiah is its bridegroom. What appears to be a flowery metaphor is actually something much more substantial. The use of this language has to do with actual ancient Hebrew Marriage practices. These marriage practices are in concert with the covenant Yeshua made with us, and it shows the importance of...

How To Love Your Neighbor As Yourself

How To Love Your Neighbor As Yourself

Rabbi, which is the great commandment in the Torah? Yahusha said unto him, You shall love את Yahuah Elohayka with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.

How To Keep The Sabbath According To The Bible

Shabbat shalom from under the dome! One of the most frequently asked questions of new Torah Keepers is “how do I keep the Sabbath according to the Bible?” So what better place to start than Exodus 20:8-11 which reads as follows: Remember the day of the Shabbath, to keep it holy. Six days shall you labor, and do all your work: But the seventh day is the Shabbath of Yahuah Elohayka: in it you shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger that is within...

What Is The First Commandment And How To Keep It

What Is The First Commandment

What is the first commandment in scripture? When we’re speaking in terms of the “10 words” or “10 commandments,” the first command is in Exodus 20:2-3 and it reads as follows: I am Yahuah Elohayka, which have brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other elohiym before me. On the surface, this seems like an easy commandment to keep, and for the most part it is. But as many of you know, Satan is much smarter than most of us would care to admit. And if you look around...

What Does The Parable of the 10 Virgins Mean?

What does the parable of the wise and the foolish virgins mean?   First of all, there needs to be an understanding of ancient Hebrew marriage customs. If you haven’t read my post outlining what the marriage customs were, go there now and read that. Hebrew marriage. This will give you the foundation necessary to understand what Yeshua the Messiah is talking about. Let’s start by looking at the parable in it’s entirety: “At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish and five...
