This site is for those who diligently seek the Way of Life, and who would
choose to prepare themselves for the arrival of the Bridegroom.
The central focus of this site is the Good News of the Kingdom of God, including Yahuweh's plan
of salvation offered freely to those that would choose to be saved by Faith – by the shed
blood of the Lamb of God, who was crucified on the place called Calvary.
The goal of this site is to proclaim the simplicity of the Gospel according to the Scriptures, and
to direct seekers to search the Scriptures daily for themselves, as did the Bereans, to see whether
these things are so (Acts 17:11).
Certain prophetic keys and details are given that will assist some Readers in their own personal
preparation for the appearing of the Bridegroom. Others may find these writings helpful in their
endurance through the furnace of the times that are almost upon us.
These studies have been written hastily from notes taken during an extended time in the wilderness.
Due to time constraints, these studies appear only in abbreviated format, using mostly Scripture
references, with some explanation for clarity. It is hoped that in time, if the Bridegroom tarries,
more detail may be offered in these pages.
These writings are not intended to put condemnation on anyone. Neither are they intended to promote
myself or any group. They are presented simply to provide a practical preparation guideline for
those who yearn to be among the Bride, and to help us to see where we are in time.
Our desire is that the Reader would first pray for understanding, as did David of old, and as
Jeremiah, for enlightenment by the Holy Spirit:
Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous
things out of thy Law (Torah). (Psalms 119:18)
Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee
great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3)
As Bible Believers, there is yet much preparation the Bride must undergo to become ready for the
Bridegroom, but there is precious little time. There is much hidden treasure to be found buried
within the Scriptures that will provide immense wealth of preparation to the Reader. May every one
of us find Gold, Silver, and Precious Stones within the Scriptures!
Introduction - Goal, Site Purpose, and Use of Names - The Scriptures are alive with
prophetic meanings for our day (the 'now-for-today' meaning for us). These messages are
"hidden in plain sight" in the Bible for Yahuweh's people to find. They point to
Yahushua as 'The Way' and they enable us to prepare 'The Way' in our hearts and
lives. A brief explanation of the use of Biblical names of the Father, and of the Son.
Overviews - Some of the Plans and Purposes of Yahuweh - The Scriptures portray many
pictures and examples of Yahuweh's plans and purposes, hidden within various words and events
of Scripture. Yahuweh has purposely hidden many of these things for us to seek, and to find, in
order that we be fully furnished, and prepared. A few of these overviews are presented here.
- The Good News!
- There is both Good News and Bad News, but the Good News has cancelled the Bad News, for all who
- The 3-Fold
Harvest - This Study is an overview of the Harvest, and reading this first will give proper
perspective to all the others. The Husbandman awaits the harvest now ripening. This study is an
overview of the One Harvest of Yahuweh's people, and how it occurs in three separate phases.
The timing of each phase is revealed in the three Harvest Feasts of Yahuweh.
Two Witnesses of Devarim - By Brick Parrish - An overview of the offer of Betrothal and the
eternal Marriage Agreement between Yahweh and His people. The present-day testimony of Heaven and
Earth, and what these Two Witnesses reveal.
Things Your Pastor Never Told You About the Early Church Fathers - A brief historical account
of how the Biblical practices and celebrations of the Born-Again Believers were first outlawed,
then snuffed-out, being replaced by man-made religious practices and celebrations. Today however,
we are seeing the Truths of the early Biblical teachings and practices being restored, just as
promised in the Scriptures!
- The Father Seeks a Bride for
His Son: Betrothal Secrets - Questions of closed eyes, hidden sayings, and teaching in Parables
can be explained by observing how the Father seeks for, and selects a Bride for His Son. A look at
a few of the many features of the Bride's Betrothal, including the 'seal' or earnest of
her Betrothal; how the Bridegroom's appointed days are seen as courting encounters, and as
evidence of Messiah-in-you, and in whose participation the Bride is identified to the Father who is
seeking a Bride for His Son. Includes details of certain Covenant items found in the Wedding of
the King's Son Parable.
- The Wedding
of the King’s Son (A Parable) - A parable of the Overall purposes of the King, and how He
determines which of the Bride Candidates are to be chosen; A look at both groups, as they undergo
their preparation for the heavenly Wedding, as revealed in all of Scripture, and as revealed in the
astonishing, and magnificent, nature of the New Covenant.
Who is the Bridegroom? - Scriptures reveal who the true Bridegroom is, and how He can be
Who is the Bride? - There are many pictures of both the False Bride and the True Bride,
to be seen throughout Scripture, for our learning and example. In this section the qualities and
characteristics of the True Bride are presented, as revealed in Scripture, in various personalities
and groups of people.
- Chavah (Eve)
- The Book of Genesis reveals the overall plan of Yahuweh for taking out a Bride for Himself.
- Elijah &
Elisha - One prophetic view of the Bride's planning and preparation, as well as many Bride
characteristics and features, can be seen in Elijah and Elisha.
Army - Yahuweh's plan of calling and separating of the Bride Candidates out from the larger
group can be seen in the prophetic example of Gideon's Army.
- Ruth &
Boaz - Further Bride characteristics and prophetic truths can be seen in the example of Ruth
& Caleb - Joshua and Caleb "together" reveal the only ones allowed to enter the
- Esther: The Bride Makes Herself Ready - The
Fascinating story of the various people seen in the Book of Esther, and how they portray
various people today who either help, or oppose, the Bride. We see the King, and his kingdom; and
Haman as a leader, who brings error into the King's household; and the Queen Vashti, who
refuses the King's Commandment; the Wise Men; the Seven chamberlains; and Esther, who portrays
the Bride in her preparation.
The Preparation of the Bride - Scripture reveals various aspects of the
Bride's preparation, which is accomplished by the Holy Spirit, and with the cooperation of the
Making of an Overcomer: (Part 1) The Wrestling of Rachel - In the messages addressed to the
called-out people in the 7 cities in Revelation, all the promises are for those who
overcome. A look at some Scripture showing the issues of contention today, and how
Born-Again Believers are exhorted to prevail, and overcome. A look at Rachel, as an example of the
Bride, for our learning.
Making of an Overcomer: (Part 2) The Wrestling of Jacob - A continuation of Part 1, showing
more Scripture on becoming an Overcomer. A look at Jacob who, after he prevailed, received both a
Blessing, and a new name. Jacob is seen as an example to all Born-Again Believers who desire to
overcome and prevail, that they might receive the promises stated in Revelation chapters 2 and
- The Bride Makes Herself Ready -
There is much preparation to be done before the Bride is considered "Ready" to go in to
the presence of the Bridegroom. An overview of How and when the Bride becomes prepared for her
- How Does
the Bride Prepare? - A detailed look at how the Bride prepares herself for the Bridegroom. This
preparation is related to the preparation the Wise Virgins undergo, that separates them from the
- The New Covenant
Passover: A Mystery - Scripture reveals many items of Great Importance regarding the New
Covenant Passover, all vital to the Bride's Preparation; Descriptions and Links to latest
Passover Articles dealing with these issues.
New Covenant Passover - An overview of Passover from the Bride's perspective - how
participation in Passover is the first and foremost item of preparation for the 'First-Born'
of Israel: The Bridegroom as Firstborn of many brethren, and the Bride Company as a kind of
firstfruits of the entire harvest of Believers.
Wise and Foolish Virgins - Based on the Parable in Matthew 25. A look at what Scripture reveals
as the real differences between the Wise and Foolish Virgins, with a warning for those desiring to
Wise and Foolish Virgins: The Separation of the Wise - Based on the Parable in Matthew 25, and
the Wisdom Verses of Scripture. The Scriptures reveal a 2-step process of separation from the
multitudes, for those who would grow in Wisdom. Many Scriptures show a contrast between the
Wise and the Foolish, so that those who seek Wisdom may know exactly what they may
choose to do, in order to prepare for the arrival of the Bridegroom.
- The Wise and
Foolish: According to Yahushua - The words of Yahushua spoken in the Gospels tell us in clear
terms who is wise, and who is foolish, but we have simply not understood what He was
telling us. Yahushua is now calling us to return to being "DO-ers" of His word, according
to the examples seen in His life, and in the life of the apostle Paul, and according to the words
of all the Prophets.
- The Wise and
Foolish Virgins: Steps to Obtaining Wisdom - The Scriptures are full of instructions for those
who would gain Wisdom. A brief overview of Scriptures that show characteristics of Wisdom, and of
the Fear of Yahuweh, and of Knowing Yahuweh, and how we might gain each of these qualities as our
- Contending for The Faith
- We are exhorted to contend, to fight to remain in The Faith that was originally given. Scripture
shows what The Faith is, why we must contend for The Faith, and how we are to
contend. Overview of how the adversary attacks the foundation of The Faith. Examples of contending
for The Faith.
- Are You in
The Faith? Examine Yourselves: The Simple Scripture Test - Continuation of Contending for The
Faith. We are warned to examine ourselves, to test ourselves, to see if we are in The Faith.
Scripture tells us what the test is, and clearly reveals the examples for us to imitate, and by
which we may test whether we are in The Faith.
- Righteousness as the Light
- Based on the Parable in Matthew 25. A brief look at how Scripture reveals Light as the result of
the Wise Virgins having Oil in their Lamps, and no Light as the result of the Foolish having no
Oil. A warning is given for those today desiring to have Oil and Light.
- Oil for
the Light - Based on the Parable in Matthew 25. A detailed look at Scripture that reveals
exactly what the Oil for the Lamps is, and what it is NOT, for our warning today.
- Those Who
Sell Oil - Based on the Parable in Matthew 25. A brief look at the Oil, and who are those today
that continue to "Sell the Oil" to the Foolish Virgins. This writing is a warning to the
bride, so she might avoid these Dealers of the "Anointing."
Adornments For The Bride — True and False: Jewelry, Piercings & Tattoos - The
Scriptures describe two kinds of adornment — those God desires for His people to have,
and those His people are to avoid. As adornments of a Bride, they describe either the True Bride or
the False Bride. Scripture reveals the relationship of jewelry, tattoos, and body piercings to
bondage. Adornments of the True Bride and the False Bride are compared.
Warnings For the Bride - There are many warnings given to the Bride, alerting her to
those things that could hinder her preparation, and things that could prevent her entering in to
the Kingdom. For each warning given in Scripture, we are given a list of consequences for not
heeding the warning, as well as the corresponding remedy.
- A Way That Seems Right: Avoiding the Strong Delusion
New! - The importance of forsaking the worldly wisdom of Egypt; warning of
spiritual counterfeits, spiritual mixtures of true and false; the Scriptures as the standard for
testing spiritual matters; Indicators of walking in darkness, and some popular examples of spiritual
darkness and occult practices that should be avoided.
- The Book of Revelation:
A Prophetic Overview - What is the purpose of the Book of Revelation- and to whom was it
written? A look at the wording of Revelation tells us that it was written to the Bride, for the
purpose of warning her of hidden "spots and wrinkles," as she goes about preparing for
the Bridegroom; and to give her vision, hope, and encouragement during a critical time period.
- The Error of
Balaam - One of the hidden "spots and wrinkles" issues revealed in the Book of
Revelation is the Error of Balaam, a poisonous infection that progresses to become the
Doctrine of Balaam. We will discover in this detailed writing that the Error of Balaam is
NOT greed, as many have been told. We will look first at the warning of the Doctrine of
Balaam given in Revelation, and then we will see in detail what Scripture reveals about the Error
of Balaam, so that we might remove it from our lives.
Doctrine of Balaam Today: A Warning to the Bride Major Item! -
The Book of Revelation is warning the Bride today against the "Doctrine of Balaam," which
is now being discovered as the Bride prepares for the Bridegroom. A brief overview of what this
Doctrine is, and how it has been embraced by most Believers today. A brief look at how the
initial Error of Balaam progresses to the Way of Balaam, and finally becomes the
Doctrine of Balaam, bringing a plague on entire congregations. A look at examples of the
crippling effects of the Doctrine of Balaam, and how Yahuweh will fight against all who continue to
hold this error.
- Eating Things
Sacrificed Unto Idols: A Warning to the Bride Major Item! - The
Bridegroom gives a Double-Warning to the Bride. One of the most common reasons the Bridegroom will
"have a few things against" His people is the widespread practice of (unknowingly) eating
things sacrificed unto idols. An examination of Scripture reveals what this is, what causes it, and
how we might repent of this Sin.
- The Strange
Woman: A Warning to the Bride - The Light of the Scriptures has removed the cloak hiding the
wiles of the enemy, who has used the Strange Woman, seen throughout Scripture, to bring a
subtle and great deception upon Yahuweh's people. This Strange Woman has quietly deceived, and
taken captive much of the Evangelical World, and is promoting a very subtle, counterfeit 'New
Covenant' that looks much like the true New Covenant of Scripture. The Scriptural
antidote to guard against this deception and captivity is given. Features of the Strange
Woman are summarised, to help the Bride-Candidates discern the man-made, false Covenant, from the
Scriptural, true Covenant. Scriptures reveal how treading the path of a false 'New
Covenant' affects the promised inheritance.
- Entering the
Kingdom: The Two Love Tests - Not everyone that says, "Lord, Lord" will enter the
Kingdom, but only those who "do".... Scripture is clear that there will be final exams
given, in order to test each one who would desire to enter. Yahushua tells us what these tests are,
so that we might study the material, and perhaps pass the test when it comes.
- Who is the
Chaste Virgin? - The Scriptures portray the betrothed Bride as a Chaste Virgin. The Bridegroom
has a plan for the Bride: that she might remain chaste. The serpent also has a plan for the Bride:
to remove her chaste condition by various forms of corruption. Scriptures reveal what it means to
be chaste; and gives us warning of the kinds of corruption to avoid, and the antidote for these
corruptions, in order to remain chaste.
Images and Idols: the Scriptural Definition Major Item! -
A closer look at the Second Commandment, and how Scripture defines Idols and Graven Images, and
their differences. A brief review and further details of how these items affect New Covenant
Believers, for our warning.
Stepping Stones for the Bride: The Feasts of Yahuweh - The Feasts [Appointed Times or
moedim] of Yahuweh, seen in Leviticus chapter 23, are special times of assembly for all of
Yahuweh's people, and serve as stepping-stones in our walking with the Bridegroom in the Way of
- The Feasts of Yahuweh - An Overview - Introduction (Part 1) (Coming soon)
- An overview of the Feasts [Appointed Times or moedim] of Yahuweh. Beginning with the
weekly Sabbath, these days are appointed to be times of instruction, fellowship, and rejoicing
among Yahuweh's children, and give us opportunity to come to know our Abba Father, and
for Him to come to know us. Rich in prophetic meaning, the Feasts of Yahuweh also serve as a kind
of 'filter,' to further screen-out those Bride-Candidates who are not willing to follow
Yahushua's example of obedience.
- The New Covenant
Passover: A Mystery - Among the Appointed Times or moedim of Yahuweh in Leviticus
chapter 23, Passover is not listed as a Great or High Sabbath day, but its practice initiates and
gives meaning to all the subsequent annual Sabbaths of Yahuweh. Yahuweh's purpose for Passover,
and the Scriptural timing of Passover, are both part of the 'mystery' of Messiah, in that
they are not easily seen, but have been hidden for the Bride to seek, to find, and to practice.
Scripture reveals many items of Great Importance regarding the New Covenant Passover, all vital to
the Bride's Preparation; Includes Descriptions and Links to all Passover Articles on this
New Covenant Passover - An overview of Passover from the Bride's perspective - how
participation in Passover is the primary item of preparation for the 'First-Born' of
Israel: The Bridegroom as Firstborn of many brethren, and the Bride Company as a kind of
firstfruits of the entire harvest of Believers.
- When Do We Eat the Passover Supper, According to Scripture?
New! - Today we are rapidly undergoing the promised 'Restitution of all things,'
in which the restoring of the true timing of Passover plays a major part. But how do we determine
the Biblical timing of the Passover Supper? The Torah and the Testimony of Messiah both reveal the
timing of the Passover Memorial supper.
- Passover: Seven Days or
One Day? – When we follow Rabbinic Tradition of Passover instead of Scripture, we fall
into disobedience. We fail to celebrate Messiah's Passover, for Rabbinic Tradition does not
celebrate Passover, but only Unleavened (Luke 22:1) — which [by Tradition] is called
Passover! When we misunderstand certain prophetic statements regarding the Passover, we distort the
Biblical picture of Passover; When we choose to acknowledge Messiah’s words and example,
the Biblical Passover picture becomes clear.
School of the Prophets: Prophetic Signposts in Light of the Scriptures - Yahuweh has
provided many Biblical signposts along the way. These hidden signs in the Earth and in the heavens
reveal and confirm the Scriptures, and tell us where we are in His timetable — and are given
for the preparation and encouragement of the Bride. Taken together, these signs reveal the
remarkable, promised Testimony of Heaven and Earth, and they are for our learning.
- Things to
Come - The Source of Understanding, and its purpose and end results are revealed. The
Scriptures tell us who has it, and who does not - and how we might find
Events - The Bridegroom has hidden many prophetic events for the Bride to see, in our daily
lives, and throughout Scripture. These events are for the purpose of giving messages to the Bride,
for her growth and encouragement. All such messages point back to Scripture as the test for
- Prophetic Numbers In
Scripture - The Bridegroom is revealing many of the "now" or prophetic meanings of
Scripture, that have been hidden away within the numbers in Scripture. These numbers and their
meanings reveal the prophetic meaning of Scripture, and also confirm and authenticate the
plain-sense meaning of Scripture.
Words In Scripture - The Eyes of Yahuweh's people are beginning to open, and to see many
new treasures the Bridegroom has "hidden away" in the Scriptures, for the Bride to seek
out, and to find. Some of these treasures are the "now" or prophetic meanings of
Scripture Words, that allow the Bride to clearly see the path that will allow her to enter in to
the Promised Land. Cautions are given, that two or 3 witnesses are still required to establish any
word or matter.
- Bridegroom and Bride Signs in the
Heavens!- The Bridegroom has placed certain signs in the night sky for all the Bride-Candidates
to see. Just as the Star of Bethlehem announced the first arrival of Messiah, in the same way these
celestial signs reveal clues to the timing of the Bridegroom's return for the Bride. These
signs have already been seen in great detail in the heavens! The Scriptures list specific signs in
the heavens that announce the Father's inspection of the Bride, the Bridegroom's arrival
for the Bride, the taking-away or resurrection of the Bride, the beginning of the Furnace testing
of the Believers, and the subsequent resurrection of the Believers.
- More Bride Signs in the
Heavens! - These additional Bride signs in the heavens are occurring simultaneous to the other
Bride Signs in the Heavens! These signs appear to confirm Scriptures not yet considered, but that
can now be seen as parallel signs, and bringing further confirmation. These signs bring clarity to
certain Scriptures, and have great implications for the Greater Body of Messiah.
- Heavenly Signs and
Day-Counts - Signs in the heavens occurring on Biblically-significant dates give new insight
into various day-counts seen in scripture. The 1260 days and 1290 days are now coming into view,
with confirming signs in the heavens.
New Sign in the Heavens: The Last Day - There is a new sign in the heavens that appears
annually, similar to the description seen in Song of Solomon, where the Bridegroom knocks on the
door, but backs away, only to return later, possibly an indicator of the time Bride is to be taken
in Resurrection. This sign occurs in 2009 as early as the 'Last Day' of the seventh
Biblical month, and infrequently on the Last Day of the seventh Biblical month in subsequent
Watching: The Day and the Hour - Scriptures tell the Bride what signs to look for. The
testimony of Heaven and Earth reveal both the 'what' and the 'when' of the
- The 4200th
Verse - A look at the highly-prophetic 4200th verses of both Old and New Testaments, and how
they portray the Bride's resurrection.
- The Iron
Gate Will Open Soon - This is a link to a well-written article by Bob Schlenker at
theopenscroll.com, revealing the prophetic picture of the Bride's resurrection, as seen in the
account of Peter in Acts Chapter 12.
Entering the Promised Land - An overview of Scripture, and the words of Yahushua, on how
we may enter in, and how we may not enter in, depending on our choices. Includes detailed, clear
and simple instructions by Yahushua, and New Testament warnings given for our instruction.
- The Promised Land-How
to Enter In: The Words of Yahushua - The words of Yahushua, and indeed all the Scriptures, give
us clear and pointed instruction on how New Covenant Believers must first come out by the Blood,
and then enter in by obedience, all by Grace. Detailed examples are given from Scripture.
- The Promised Land:
Choosing to Enter In - The entire Scriptures reveal the great plan of Yahuweh, whereby we are
given freedom to choose whom we will serve, and then may choose to enter in, by His Grace, or we
may choose not to enter in, depending on all our choices. New Testament "Warnings" are
given for our instruction.
Whom Do You Say That I Am? - A Scriptural review of our testing, and of whether or not
we "know" the Bridegroom. Many Scriptural issues and warnings for us to use to examine
ourselves, to see just where we are in our knowing Him, and in our obedience level. Many warnings
and examples of Scripture, and tests of our "doctrines" reveal whom we say Yahushua is.
- What Is His
Name, and What Is His Son's Name — If You can Tell? - A riddle is presented in the
Proverbs, challenging us to search the Scriptures for the hidden, true names of the Father, and the
Son. Some examples of how the Bereans searched the Scriptures to verify the teachings of the
apostle Paul, are used to find the true names of the Father and the Son.
- The Test
for Entering In - Not everyone will be allowed to enter the City of the King, so everyone must
be tested to see whether they are authorised to enter. Many Scriptures reveal testing we undergo
each day, in order to determine who we are, by our demonstrating of whom we say Yahushua is.
- From the
Beginning - Have we known Him from the Beginning? What are "My" commandments? What
are "My" sayings? We must determine who He is, in order to determine what His sayings
- Messiah In The
Wilderness - Who is Yahushua? Do we know Him? Do we love Him? Yahushua is now testing us, to
see whether we know Him, and love Him, by observing which Commandments we keep.
- Messiah-In-You - Discerning His
will; Doctrines and Commandments of Men prevent us from entering His rest; allowing Messiah-in-you
to bring us in.
- Let No Man Steal Your
Crown - Reveals there are men today trying to take away, and steal your Bridal veil, and your
crown; things that allow your crown to be stolen; the Doctrine of Balaam, and how it will steal
The Way of Salvation: According to the Scriptures - The Scriptures reveal a picture of
Salvation that is different from what many today have understood. Salvation in Scripture is seen as
a 3-fold process, and as two separate stages. The example of coming out of Egypt, and entering into
the Promised Land, all according to Yahuweh's Grace, is seen as one great example of Salvation
for us today.
- The Good News!
- There is both Good News and Bad News, but the Good News has cancelled the Bad News, for all who
- How Do I
Receive God's Forgiveness for My Sins? - According to the Bible, forgiveness of sins does
not come from keeping the commandments, nor by being good, nor by becoming religious, nor by
our good deeds — no matter how many or how good they might be! The Bible reveals the simple
solution to how we are forgiven of our sins.
- After Forgiveness: The
Next Step - After receiving forgiveness of our sins, and after being Born-Again — What is
our Next Step? Father has shown us our destination, our goal, and has shown us in Scripture what
steps to take to arrive at our goal. Taking these three steps seen in Scripture will enable us to
know who Messiah is, and will show us how we may truly believe Him, walk with Him, abide
['remain'] in Him, and ultimately enter in with Him.
- What Must I Do to Be Saved?
- The Blood of the
Lamb - By Derek Prince - An excellent, brief overview of the Scriptures on the Blood of
the Lamb, and its absolute necessity for New Covenant Salvation. A Scripture review of Redemption,
Forgiveness, Cleansing, Justification, and Sanctification, and how the Blood of Messiah
accomplishes these in the life of the Believer today. The Good News of the gospel is that through
Yahushua's death on the cross, He defeated Satan on our behalf in two primary ways. First, He
made it possible for us to obtain forgiveness of past sin. Second, He made it possible for us to
receive God’s righteousness by faith without having to observe the law—thus
depriving Satan of his chief weapon against us, which is guilt.
- Salvation: According to the Scriptures
- Part 1 - The Scriptures reveal a clear and simple message of Salvation. The Scriptures reveal
to us exactly what Salvation is, and what it is not. In this series we will look at some of the
highlights of Salvation, according to the Scriptures. Salvation in the New Testament include the meanings of deliverance,
rescue, safety, and preservation of life. Many today, however, ascribe additional Bible concepts to
the word Salvation, thereby mixing concepts and doctrines, resulting in error and confusion.
The solution for this is to get back to Scripture, and to use Bible words to define Bible
- Salvation: According to the Scriptures
- Part 2 - In order to help us examine ourselves, to see if we are in the Faith, we must have a
good understanding of true "Biblical" Salvation. The New Testament refers many times to
Israel as our example, and for our warning. We must therefore find out what these New Testament
warnings are, and why they are so important for us today. We must look to all of Scripture, where
we get an "eye-opening" view of what New Covenant Salvation is, and what it is not.
Truth: According to the Scriptures - One of the most important Biblical concepts we must
grasp. Truth is determined only by Scripture, and the error of the Doctrines of Men can be seen
only against the backdrop of Scripture.
Biblical Guidelines for Studying the Bible: Using Scripture to Interpret the Scriptures
New! - What is the
source of our current understanding of the Bible? The pure Truths of Scripture are of highest
importance — how we understand the Scriptures will affect our eternal condition! To avoid
being deceived by man-made doctrines, we must not rely on Preachers, Teachers, Bible notes or
commentaries. Instead we must study and understand the Bible for ourselves — not looking
through the lenses of tradition or man-made Bible study methods — but relying only on what
the Bible actually says about how to study and understand the Scriptures! Here are 7 Biblical
Guidelines that show us the way!
- The Bible: An
Inconvenient Message - How do we respond to the Truth of the Scriptures? Do we bend ourselves
to fit the Scriptures - or do we bend the Scriptures to fit ourselves? A frank look at these two
fundamental choices, the characteristics of those who embrace each choice, and the end result of
- The Way of
Truth: According to the Scriptures - Truth is seen in Scripture not as an abstract, mental
idea, but as the living person of Yahushua. It is only when we allow Messiah-in-us to walk in His
own Truth, that Truth is made manifest to us, and we then walk in the Light. Scripture reveals the
consequences of walking in Truth, and of NOT walking in Truth.
- What You
Believe: True or False? The Simple Biblical Test - Testing Belief Against Scripture - Is your
current belief according to Scripture? Or, is it a mixture of truth and church Tradition
– the Teaching and Doctrines of Men? A simple Biblical test will determine. Man's
perception of Scriptural Truth is what determines his actions, his daily walk with Yahuweh, and
even his eternal destiny. Thus many today have placed their eternal destinies in the hands of a few
Pastors and Theologians.
- WWYD - What Would Yahushua
Do? - The simplest test of what we should do in every aspect of life, to enable us to determine
"Truth" and to enable us to "enter in" to the Promised Land. Shows Yahushua as
our example in all things.
Foundations of The Faith - Scriptures reveal the foundations of the Faith, surprisingly
different from what most of us have learned. At least Two or three witnesses of Scripture, and the
words of the Prophets, confirm these Truths for us today.
- Faith: According to
the Scriptures - Biblical Faith is not some vague idea, nor is it merely a mental agreement to
the facts of Scripture. The Bible gives many illustrations of Biblical Faith, showing us what
Biblical Faith is, and how we are to exercise this faith!
- Sin: According to the
Scriptures - Sin has been re-defined today by Theologians, as part of their Doctrines of Men
they promote, and as a result, prevent many from entering in. Scriptures reveal the True, New
Testament definition of Sin. A look at Bondage to Sin, and Yahuweh's remedy for Sin. A look at
the Mystery of Iniquity, and how it is rampant among Believers today. A brief look at the early
generation of Israelites, and why they failed to enter in to the Promised Land; The words of
Yahushua regarding iniquity today – reveal who will not "enter in."
- Law: According to the Scriptures (Coming soon) - Most Believers today are
not taught the Scriptural, New Covenant Truth about the Law ('Torah') of Yahuweh, but are
taught a man-made paradigm, or 'spin' of the Truth. Scripture plainly reveals exactly what
it means to be 'under' the Law; and tells us plainly, what was against us, and what was
done away with, and what was nailed to the cross. A look at Yahuweh's two-fold, New Covenant
purpose for the Law ('Torah'). The richness of Torah understanding and practice can be seen
in the writings of Paul, who uncovers some real gems of Truth for the Bride's adornment today.
A real eye-opener for all New Covenant Believers who desire to press in to truly know our
Father, and who desire to fully prepare themselves to enter in to the Promised Land of their
- True Grace - By David
M Hargis - A very brief, but accurate overview of New Covenant Grace as used in the context of the
majority of Scripture passages.
- Grace: According to the Scriptures (Coming soon) - Grace is another
term that has been re-defined by the Theologians, along with the word Sin, as an attempt to
lend credibility to their Doctrines of Men. All the Scriptures, from Genesis to Revelation, prove
conclusively what Grace actually is, and what it is not. The Believer's full participation in
the New Covenant can be limited by a non-Scriptural view of Yahuweh's Grace. An in-depth look
at Paul's main theme reveals the warnings against receiving His Grace in vain, of
falling from Grace, and of growing in Grace.
- Righteousness: According to the Scriptures (Coming soon) - In order to
understand Righteousness, one must lay down all the baggage carried from the past, including
previously learned, religious-sounding, but man-made definitions. The Scriptures reveal the
two-fold nature of righteousness, and how Messiah Yahushua accomplishes both stages within Man, by
His Grace alone.
- Repentance: The Good News of the Kingdom (Coming soon) - Repentance is
almost an unknown entity today in many religious communities. Repentance as a requirement for New
Covenant Believers is seen throughout the New Testament. A look at Scriptural examples of
Repentance. A discussion of "Can't Get Home Without it!" – how entrance into
the Promised Land is impossible without Repentance.
- Walking in Eternal
Judgment - In Hebrews Chapter 6 we are encouraged to become proficient in all of the foundation
stones of The Faith. As the last of the six foundation stones listed, eternal judgment is perhaps
the one least understood, but vitally necessary, in order for Yahushua's Bride to be permitted
to go on unto completion. One of the main links in the chain of Yahuweh's process of redemption
and salvation, these Mishpatim of Yahuweh play a major role in the preparation of His Bride,
and of leading her into the eternal inheritance.
- What Are the Ten Commandments?
- Also called The Ten Words, the Ten Commandments come alive with fresh meaning, when we look
closely at what they actually say. These Scripture passages are shown in both Hebrew and English,
enabling us to see for ourselves the words of these Commandments. When we as New Covenant Believers
understand whose words they are, we can better know how to respond to them.
- Commandments: Which Ones for New Testament Believers? (Coming soon) - A
look at Commandments throughout Scriptures – and which ones are relevant for New Covenant
Believers. A look at many new Testament examples, for our imitating, and our learning.
- How to Avoid a Carnal Mind (Coming soon) - The New Testament reveals much
about how to avoid a carnal mind, and how the carnal mind can actually prevent Yahuweh's people
from entering in to the Promised Land.
- Our Only Hope of Glory (Coming soon) - Scriptures reveal our only hope of
being among those called 'My Glory' is for us to allow Messiah-in-you to manifest Himself
in us, in all His fullness. A look at many Scriptures and examples revealing facets of His fullness
He expects of His Born-Again children. A brief look at some of the ways we have been taught to deny
Him, and to prevent His fullness in us, for our warning.
- The Two-Fold aspect of New Testament Grace, as revealed throughout the Old and New Testaments.
Scripture reveals how our understanding of only one side of the two-sided coin of
Grace has caused us to fall short of Yahuweh's Righteousness. Yahushua, who is
our Righteousness, is the first aspect of His Grace for our Righteousness. Both aspects of
Yahuweh's Grace, as seen in Zechariah 4, are required to bring us into His presence.
- The New
Covenant: According to the Scriptures - As part of Father's Everlasting Covenant,
is based upon the original Covenant made with Abraham; Eternal promises & provisions extended to
the Seed; Israel in the Wilderness as our example; The Bondwoman and the Free woman; New Covenant
provisions of Grace; Comparison of 'Old' vs. 'New;' Bondservant
provisions of the Covenant; the exchange of Yokes and the Yoke of Messiah; Not under
compulsion to obey, revealing Father's Purpose of seeking a Bride for His Son.
- New Covenant Liberty:
Freedom to Choose - Many surprising, and astonishing features of the New Covenant are revealed
in this in-depth look at the New Covenant, such as the Yoke of Bondage, the New Covenant Exchange
of Yokes, and voluntary Bondservants; External vs. Internal tables of the heart, some hard sayings
of Paul; and how one may continue to walk at Liberty.
The Congregation: The Tabernacle of the Testimony - Scriptures tell us that the
Tabernacle of the Testimony was to be guarded carefully, that there be no wrath upon the children
of Israel. Today, the Tabernacle of Testimony finds its fulfillment in the Believers in whom the
Holy Spirit dwells, both as individuals, and as a Congregation. Thus it is, that the Congregation
is to play an important part of Yahuweh's Testimony, revealing the light of the Life of
Messiah to Israel and to all the nations.
Holy Spirit in the Congregation - By Derek Prince - An excellent overview of how the
Congregation is to be set in order, that it might shine the Light of the Life of Messiah to
all who are present. The balance of the Holy Spirit and Truth will restore the congregational
Lampstand to its intended brightness. A strong word, not for the complacent, intended only for
those who desire to lead their Congregations to press on further into Father's presence.
- The Midrash: A Messianic Substitute for
the Holy Spirit in the Congregation - The tradition of the midrash as seen in
Judaism and in many Messianic congregations, is shown in vivid contrast to the Scriptural model of
the Holy Spirit in the Congregation. The current popular use of the midrash to interpret Scripture
in the assembly instead of the Biblical Holy Spirit model, can result in lack of spiritual
nourishment, stunted spiritual growth, and eventual falling away of many. The apostles Paul and
Peter show us by their examples, how correct interpretation of Scripture is attained.
Growing in Grace - Scriptural Principles are discussed, and guidance given, for those

Just the Facts Ma'am: Help For Growing in Grace
New! - We are called to walk by faith, not by sight; but when we make decisions
based on feelings, rather than the facts of the Scriptures, we fail to walk by faith. Instead, we
fail to grow in Grace, and fail to mature. Five Basic Facts of Scripture that help us to walk by
faith, and to grow in Grace.
A Check-up For Well-Being
New! - According to Scripture, our well-being is tied to how we obey the 5th
commandment; when we resist the authority of parents, we resist Yahuweh himself. A look at
Yahuweh's purpose for authorities in our life, and some ways to show honour to our Parents, as
a help for us to obey the 5th Commandment.
- Acquiring A
Teachable Heart - Growing into His image, from Glory to Glory, requires laying down our own
understanding, in exchange for His understanding. Yahushua is our example, for growing in maturity
and in obedience, and in how we may acquire a heart attitude of a Little Child.
- Dying to
Self - Brief list of practical examples of how we experience "dying to self." In
order for resurrection Life to occur, we must first undergo this death of self in all areas of our
life. As we allow the cross to bring crucifixion, we then experience the power of His
Obeying Torah is Not About Salvation New! - Many Believers today are
sensing the inner promptings of the Holy Spirit to begin to obey Torah. They are discovering from
Scripture, that obeying Torah is not about achieving righteousness or salvation; but is instead
about learning to walk as Messiah walked, learning to walk in holiness, and learning to love
Messiah in the way He has told us.
Feeding the Master's Flock - As the Bride-Candidates undergo their preparation, they
begin to understand that they are to pass on the mantle of instruction to others, and to feed the
Master's little Flock. Here are some prophetic pictures from Scripture that show exactly what
their spiritual food is, and how it is to be prepared and served to the Master's household.
