Resolutions

The year is about to change, will I? I’m hearing lots of commercials about exercise equipment and programs, weight loss programs, great deals on makeovers, miracle pills and beauty treatments, the hottest gifts and toys -- all those things that promise to MAKE US HAPPY!! I think it’s kind of strange, that in our minds, we’re led to believe, or have just evolved to believe, that “Holidays” are restricted to only one day or period of time. Read the complete blog at --

The Creator’s TOV Standard for Measuring Life

After completing Its first creative act, the Creator observed the light (of life). It measured what It saw by a Standard and the light measured “TOV.” This word is usually translated “good,” but good is a word with a wide range of meanings -- morally excellent; virtuous; righteous;well-behaved;fertile. TOV is a very important word because it is the Creator’s Standard and reveals Its Values. Therefore, we are going to let context and culture define it.

The First Act of Creation

In the earlier blog -- The Meaning of Create – we discussed the definition options for BARA, the Hebrew translated “created” in many translations. They all shared a common idea -- “changing the shape of something that already exists.” BARA” does not mean “to create something out of nothing.” Something must exist first, before one can create. In Genesis 1:2 we discovered the three things that existed before the creation process began.

What Does Peace on Earth and Good Will Toward Men Mean?

If you have ever participated in a Christmas play or been in the audience, you are very familiar with this scene:
Suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
Glory to God in the highest, Peace on earth and good will toward men.

That is the translation I memorized in Sunday School before I was old enough to go to elementary school. Today, I have a different understanding. Read my blog at -- https://therealyesua.blogspot.com/2017/12/what-does-peace-on-earth-and-good-will.html

The Mysteries of the Beginning

When an elohiym began creating the Heavens and the Earth, the Earth did not exist.   Darkness wasover the surface of deep waters. The presence of the elohiym hovered above the surface of the waters. Genesis 1:1-2
The Hebrew word elohiym is a theologically loaded that is translated God, god, gods, goddess, goddesses, angels and judges in the Hebrew Scriptures. The theologies of the translators usually determine how it is translated. In this ancient wisdom account, we are going to allow the Hebrew text to contextually define elohiym for us.

Yeshua: Teacher of Righteousness

Over 200 years before the birth of Yeshua (Yeshua), a central figure in the Essene community at Qumran was called “the Teacher of Righteousness.” He was extolled as having a proper understanding of the Torah and qualified to accurately teach it, as well as being one through whom God revealed “the hidden things” to the community. Discover his connection to Yeshua --

400,000-year-old 'School of Rock' Found in Prehistoric Cave in Israel

Archaeologists may have uncovered the oldest known prehistoric school, where it seems young hominins were taught how to make flint tools, butcher animals, and master other skills necessary to survive in the Stone Age about 400,000 years ago. The discovery is so remarkable that the scientists are wondering whether it means Homo sapiens itself evolved much earlier than is currently thought. The notion that what they found was evidence of an early teaching system is based on analysis of hundreds of flint stones and fragments found in Qesem Cave, in central Israel, a spot that hominins called home from 400,000 to 200,000 years ago.
