7 Characteristics Of Self-Rule “Our Enemy”
Characteristic 1 of 7
“When YaHuWaH your Elohim brings you into the land which you go to possess, He shall also CLEAR (נָשַׁל nâshal naw-shal) away many nations before you: the HITTITES and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Kena‛anites and the Perizzites and the Ḥiwwites and the Yeḇusites, seven nations greater and mightier than you. And when YaHuWaH your Elohim gives them over to you, you shall smite them and put them under the ban, completely. Make no covenant with them, and show them no favour.” Debarim/Deuteronomy 7:1-2 (1 of 7)
Waw – The ‘One’ doing ‘The Work’ of binding together; to make ‘whole or complete’ The ‘instrument’ of fastening; ‘Yahusha HaMashiach’.
JOINED > UNITED > TIED-IN > OF ONE MIND
Nun – Birthed One, The Brought Forth; The Achiever/Finisher – The ‘Begotten’!!
VITALITY > ENERGY > EXISTENCE > RENEWAL > RESURRECTION > REDEEMED > RETRIEVED
Shin – ‘His Ruach’ – The Fervent Ardency!! The Intense, fiery consuming passionate POWER of His “Being”… evident in ‘The Work of His Hand’ – The ‘Brought Forth One’- The Achiever, and Finisher!
ENGRAVE > IMPRINT > IMPRESS > BURN
Lamed – His Instructions; His Governing (made evident – The Scepter)..The ‘good seed’ – planted – To teach; guiding ‘how to’ walk in His ‘Way-Truth-Life’.. Following ‘The Leader’; The ‘process’ of ‘entering-in’ The Door! (Yohanan 12:24)
A primitive root; to pluck off, that is, divest, eject, or drop: – cast (out), drive, loose, put off (out), slip.
Take note that YaHuWaH says in His Torah that HE drives them out from before us or casts out (like unclean Ruachs). Nashal clear away remove.. the weapons of our warfare are not flesh, but MIGHTY through Elohim to the pulling DOWN of strongholds.. to be in the flesh is to have an unclean Ruach.. it’s just that simple. and it’s also just that simple that when we recognize it, we guard them gates!, we do stumble, I know I do .. and we REPENT .. and we TRUST YaHuWaH to shepherd us with HIS rod and HIS staff.. to be safe.. deliverance is from YaHuWaH.. every way of a man seems right in his own eyes (that’s mankind) but the end of that is death. It’s not as easy as it sounds.. this fire is hot.. and it is painful sometimes.. the strongholds are coming DOWN.. HalleluYah!! we are becoming living stones..
Patronymic from H2845; a Chittite, or descendant of Cheth: – Hittite, Hittites.
Hittite = “descendant of Heth”
1) the nation descended from Heth, the 2nd son of Canaan; once inhabitants of central Anatolia (modern Turkey), later in north Lebanon
HITTITES – They were giants who brought fear, confusion and discouragement to others. This is our enemy too because we should only regard YaHuWaH our Elohim.. and not man. Mishle/Proverbs 29:25 The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in YaHuWaH is set on high. This ‘stronghold’ is evident today.. in all the alternative media.. false doctrines.. illusions of a coming doom.. this is an evil agenda-meant to instill fear, and in that ‘fear’ have ‘power-over’.. This is ‘looking at what man can do’.. and is not the Regard of YaHuWaH.. This is rampant! .. and these fears are fed daily with ‘new’ stories of martial law, camps, a coming apocalypse.. (this is not Light – nor Truth)
“El-Melek Qahal/assembly of Ephesus write, ‘He who is holding the seven stars in His right hand, who is walking in the midst of the seven golden lampstands, says this: I know your works, and your labour, and your endurance, and that you are not able to bear evil ones, and have tried those who say they are emissaries and are not, and have found them false; and you have been bearing up and have endurance, and have laboured for My Name’s sake and have not become weary. But I hold this against you, that you have left your first love. So remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the first works, or else I shall come to you speedily and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent. Yet this you have, that you hate the works of the Nikolaites, which I also hate. Hazon/Revelation 2:1-7 (( the Nikolaites ‘hold power’ over the people, controlling their ‘beliefs’ which reflects in actions.. meaning if people believe in the fear-mongering.. that ‘fear’ controls ‘what they do’))
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Ruach says to the assemblies. To him who overcomes I shall give to eat from the Tree of Life, which is in the midst of the Paradise/Gan-Eden) of Elohim.”
“Be strong and courageous, for you are to let this people inherit the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, to guard to do according to all the Torah which Mosheh My servant commanded you. Do not turn from it right or left, so that you act wisely wherever you go. Do not let this Book of the Torah depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you guard to do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and act wisely. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid, nor be discouraged, for YaHuWaH your Elohim is with you wherever you go.” Yehoshua/Joshua 1:6-9
HalleluYah! There it is right there! We have to be ‘IN’ the Torah – He is the Torah! The Promise of Life ~ obedience.. following Instruction/The Instructor… He Leads, guides.. and in HIS Strength.. takes us into ‘The Promise’…
Do not let this Book of the Torah depart from your mouth. Debarim/Deuteronomy 30:14
But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” – that is, the word of belief which we are proclaiming: That if you confess with your mouth the Master Yahusha and believe in your heart that Elohim has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. Romiyim/Romans 10:8-9
To believe is to DO.. as belief controls action… just like in the Nikolaites in Hazon/Revelation reference above. Since these are 7 – I also want to see if they are also related to the ‘plumb-line’ (the sequence of the 22 letters) meaning do we see a ‘Kaf’ thought, lesson, idea in this? …. here is “Kaf”: His Lines to follow – The Flawless Pattern.. given, spoken, written..communicated!
IN this passage, speaking of the **Fire and Water like the altar of sacrifice – to lay down ‘self’.. and put ourselves, or submit to being put into the ‘hot refining fires’!! which causes ‘fear’ to self.. the letting go is ‘fearful’ to many.. they fear the unknown of not remaining attached to what they have already found ‘support-in’ even though it is unstable; still they cling because the unknown causes them to fear.. which is ‘stumbling’; allowing ‘fear’ to rule.. a tactic of ‘self’ – seen in “the Hittites”; He has overcome; driven out ‘fear’ and HE has promised.
“When you pass through the waters, I Am with you; and through rivers, they do not overflow you. When you walk through fire, you are not scorched, and a flame does not burn you. For I Am YaHuWaH your Elohim, the Set-apart One of Yisra’El, your Deliverer; I gave Mitsrayim for your ransom, Kush and Seba in your place. Since you were precious in My eyes, you have been esteemed, and I have loved you. And I give men in your place, and peoples for your life. Do not fear, for I Am with you. I shall bring your seed from the east, and gather you from the west……. Yeshayahu/Isaiah 43:2-5
Characteristic 2 of 7
“When YaHuWaH your Elohim brings you into the land which you go to possess, He shall also clear away many nations before you: the Hittites and the GIRGASHITES and the Amorites and the Kena‛anites and the Perizzites and the Ḥiwwites and the Yeḇusites, seven nations greater and mightier than you. And when YaHuWaH your Elohim gives them over to you, you shall smite them and put them under the ban, completely. Make no covenant with them, and show them no favour.” Debarim/Deuteronomy 7:1-2 (2 of 7)
These ‘peoples’ are 7 types – characteristics of ‘self-rule’… that YaHuWaH our Redeemer and Deliverer drove out before us — overcame.. manifested in the flesh — Yahusha overcame ‘self-awareness’ and never allowed ‘self to rule’ – disobedience to The Instructions….. in each ‘people type’ we can learn what we also must overcome through His Strength!
Girgashite or Girgashite = “dwelling on a clayey soil”
1) descendants of Canaan and one of the nations living east of the Sea of Galilee when the Yisraelites entered the promised land
Part of Speech: adjective
A Related Word by BDB/Strong’s Number: patrial from an unused name [of uncertain derivation]
GIRGASHITES – The meaning of the word “Girgashite” is as one who returns back from a pilgrimage. Therefore, they are people that go back and are earthly. They build their houses using clay which shows they are not stable in their mind-set. This is our enemy too because we have to be stable in our belief.
“Therefore thus said the Master YaHuWaH, “See, I am laying in Tsiyon a stone for a foundation, a tried stone, a precious corner-stone, a settled foundation. He who trusts shall not hasten away.” Yeshayahu/Isaiah 28:16
“As a dog returns to his own vomit, So a fool repeats his folly.” Mishle/Proverbs 26:11
The Gimel (3rd Letter of the Aleph-Bet) in this Word… going back and forth… to go out, and return back.. like dogs to vomit… to return to what already ruled over…
“If you do not guard to do all the Words of this Torah that are written in this book, to fear this esteemed and awesome Name, YaHuWaH your Elohim,” then YaHuWaH shall bring upon you and your descendants extraordinary plagues, great and lasting plagues, and grievous and lasting sicknesses. “And He shall bring back on you all the diseases of Mitsrayim, of which you were afraid, and they shall cling to you, also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in the book of this Torah, YaHuWaH does bring upon you until you are destroyed. “And you shall be left with few men, although you had become as numerous as the stars of the heavens, because you did not obey the voice of YaHuWaH your Elohim. “And it shall be, that as YaHuWaH rejoiced over you to do you good and increase you, so YaHuWaH does rejoice over you to destroy you and lay you waste. And you shall be plucked from off the land which you go to possess. “And YaHuWaH shall scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other, and there you shall serve other mighty ones, which neither you nor your fathers have known, wood and stone. “And among those nations you are to find no rest, nor have a resting place for the sole of your foot. But there YaHuWaH shall give you a trembling heart, and failing eyes, and sorrow of being. “And your life shall be hanging in suspense before you, and you shall fear night and day, and not be certain of your life. “In the morning you say, ‘Oh, that it were evening!’ And at evening you say, ‘Oh, that it were morning!’ because of the fear of your heart, with which you fear, and because of the sight which your eyes see. “And YaHuWaH shall bring you back to Mitsrayim in ships, by a way of which I said to you, ‘You are never to see it again.’ And there you shall be sold to your enemies as male and female slaves, but no one to buy.” Debarim/Deuteronomy 28:58-68
“I know your works, and pressure, and poverty – yet you are rich – and the blasphemy of those who say they are Yahudim and are not, but are a congregation of shatan. Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. See, shatan/self-rule is about to throw some of you into prison, in order to try you, and you shall have pressure ten days. Be trustworthy until death, and I shall give you the crown of life. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Ruach says to the assemblies. He who overcomes shall by no means be harmed by the second death.” Hazon/Revelation 2:9-11
In ‘returning’ to the pursuits of ‘self’….. we are taken back into captivity… under pharoah.. we become a slave to the demand of ‘self’ for more, more, more.. Like the priesthood, and the taught ones.. no inheritance ~ so no need to toil for the flesh, for gain, or increase… we walk ‘away from’ all those things.. and follow; entering – into His ‘rest’ His yoke is easy, His burden light..
“But Yahusha said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the reign of Elohim.” Luqas/Luke 9:62
GET AWAY FROM THE GIRGASHITES!!!
Wipe them out completely! This is to never look back with longing for ‘what was’… or miss what we had then…. >> onward >> “We too, then, having so great a cloud of witnesses all around us, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race set before us, looking to the Prince and Perfecter of our belief, Yahusha, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the stake, having despised the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of Elohim.” Ibrim/Hebrews 12:1-2
Now; looking for ‘the “Lamed” in this:
(GIRGASHITES – are not stable in their mind-set. This is our enemy too because we have to be stable in our belief.)
As in what in ‘this characteristic of ‘self-rule’ would be a point of stumbling related to the Lamed, or opposite of —- knowing that the Instructions are the ‘fence’ or sheepfold… the Rod – The Staff.. The Representative of His Authority! For our protection…
“YaHuWaH is my shepherd; I do not lack. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside still waters. He turns back my being; He leads me in paths of righteousness For His Name’s sake. When I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil. For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You spread before me a table in the face of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup runs over. Only goodness and loving-commitment follow me All the days of my life; And I shall dwell in the House of YaHuWaH, To the length of days!” Tehillim/Psalms 23:1-6
The ‘Girgashites’ do not continue in the path.. staying in the ‘lines’… the left and the right.. the distractions, the winds of doctrine… they get tossed about.. because they are ‘unstable’ in their mind-set.. which means, the mind is not ‘stayed on HIM’…
“In that day this song is sung in the land of Yahudah, “We have a strong city – He sets up deliverance, walls and ramparts. “Open the gates, let the righteous nation which guards the truth enter in. “The one steadfast of mind You guard in perfect peace, for he trusts in You.” Yeshayahu/Isaiah 26:1-3
I see ‘Lamed’ here!! and in the ‘Girgashites’ the counter of Lamed… the opposite of staying in.. forward.. following!
**Lamed- His Instructions; His Governing (made evident – The Scepter)..*The ‘good seed’ – planted – To teach; guiding ‘how to’ walk in His ‘Way-Truth-Life’.. Following ‘The Leader’; The ‘process’ of ‘entering-in’ The Door!
“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone. But if it dies, it bears much fruit.” Yohanan/John 12:24 (looking at the ‘pattern’ as it is written in the Debar – the Letters that are the Aleph-Bet…. the ‘plumb-line’ (the sequence of the 22 letters) or 7 that are The Straight Path) Lamed is the 12th ‘letter’… and the 2nd in the ‘pattern’.
Characteristic 3 of 7
“When YaHuWaH your Elohim brings you into the land which you go to possess, He shall also clear away many nations before you: the Hittites and the Girgashites and the AMORITES and the Kena‛anites and the Perizzites and the Ḥiwwites and the Yeḇusites, seven nations greater and mightier than you. And when YaHuWaH your Elohim gives them over to you, you shall smite them and put them under the ban, completely. Make no covenant with them, and show them no favour.” Debarim/Deuteronomy 7:1-2 (3 of 7)
These ‘peoples’ are 7 types – characteristics of ‘self-rule’.. that YaHuWaH our Redeemer and Deliverer drove out before us — ‘overcame’.. manifested in the flesh — Yahusha overcame ‘self-awareness’ and never allowed ‘self to rule’ – disobedience to The Instructions.. in each ‘people type’ we can learn what we also must overcome through His Strength!
Amorite = “a sayer”
1) one of the peoples of east Canaan and beyond the Jordan, dispossessed by the Israelite incursion from Egypt
Part of Speech: noun masculine collective
A Related Word by BDB/Strong’s Number: probably a patronymic from an unused name derived from H559 in the sense of publicity, i.e. prominence
AMORITES. They were people who were arrogant and boastful in their speech, who were always challenging. They had high self-esteem and this pride led to finding fault in others. This is our enemy too because YaHuWaH is the only judge. So, if we judge others then we will also be arrogant before HIM.
“The fear of YaHuWaH is to hate evil. I have hated pride and arrogance, And the evil way, And the perverse mouth.” Mishle/Proverbs 8:13
“I know your works, and where you dwell, where the throne of shatan is. And you hold fast to My Name, and did not deny the belief in Me, even in the days in which Antipas was My trustworthy witness, who was killed near you, where shatan dwells. (Ammorites/characteristic in ‘self’ —Exalting ‘self’ – in defiance of the Authority of Elohim.. self-rule!! to the extent of exalting oneself as superior over ‘others’.. thinking much to highly of themselves – seems that the ‘Ammorites’ are a ‘presence’ that may cause one to stumble– in this ‘assembly’; which is: haMatzot/Unleavened Bread – to feed on Instruction! Also in direct opposition ~ there is the ‘puffed-up’ like ‘leavening’.. The ‘Ammorites’ sound very much akin to a ‘hebrew mindset’.. (personally, I have never encountered such arrogance in any setting–until I ran into people who ‘pursue a hebrew mindset’.. and boasting in the superiority of the ‘hebraic mind’, comparing those with a ‘western mindset’ or greek mindset — as some call it) — and it is this same ‘mindset’ that teaches people to IGNORE the instructions of the ‘priesthood’.. as they are waiting for the re-installation of the ‘Levitical order’ in the ‘millennium’.. which this is misleading; sending them away from the instructions that teach us to ‘enter-in’ or how to follow.. now would that not be; ‘eating’ the wrong ‘food’.. to go to another ‘table’ to get instruction? But I hold a few matters against you, because you have there those who adhere to the teaching of Bil‛am, who taught Balaq to put a stumbling-block before the children of Yisra’El, to eat food offered to idols, and to commit whoring. So you also have those who adhere to the teaching of the Nikolaites, which teaching I hate. Repent, or else I shall come to you speedily and fight against them with the sword of My mouth. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Ruach says to the assemblies. To him who overcomes I shall give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I shall give him a white stone, and on the stone a renewed Name written which no one knows except him who receives it.” **(not renewed name) it is to enter-into His Shem.. to be IN Mashiach.. setting to rights the thought of Kadosh – Shem. Hazon/Revelation 2:13-17
“Stay in Me, and I stay in you. As the branch is unable to bear fruit of itself, unless it stays in the vine, so neither you, unless you stay in Me.” Yohanan/John 15:4
The ‘counter’ of this ‘self-exalting’ mindset is the ‘Mind of Mashiach’.. to NOT think of self – NOT consider “me”.. but to be in submission/obedience to the Governing-Instruction of the Master of The House.. we are exhorted in Philippians 2:3-8 which ‘mindset’ to pursue.. to run after diligently! The mind of a servant!!! doing none at all through selfishness or self-conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each one should look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. For, let this mind be in you which was also in Messiah Yahusha, who, being in the form of Elohim, did not regard equality with Elohim a matter to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a servant, and came to be in the likeness of men. And having been found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient unto death, death even of a stake.”
Comparing to; the ‘plumb-line’ (the sequence of the 22 letters) in this … we are at ‘Mem – The Laver.. the place of washing, renewal, to be immersed in Living Water!.. gestation of ‘the good seed’ of Instruction..
Mem – Hidden and concealed in the ‘reign of darkness’ gestation.. until the time of birthing – The ‘due date’ or Appointed Time!” the quality of the seed is not evident until it is placed in the water, a good seed will ‘take root’… and sprout. It is in the panorama of the exodus… the parting of the Sea of Reeds/Red Sea.. going through the waters.. to be in the Wilderness/Bemidbar.. in His Word! Shemoth/Exodus 14.. and prophesied to ‘happen again’….
Yehezqel/Ezekiel 20:34-41 “And I shall bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the lands where you are scattered, with a Mighty Hand, and with an outstretched arm, and with wrath poured out. And I shall bring you into the wilderness/Bemidbar (((here it is!! Entering into His Shem))) of the peoples, and shall enter into judgment with you face to face there. “As I entered into judgment with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Mitsrayim, so I shall enter into judgment with you,” declares the Master YaHuWaH. **“And I shall make you pass under the Rod, and shall bring you “into the bond of the covenant”, and purge the rebels from among you, and those who transgress against Me. From the land where they sojourn I bring them out, but they shall not come into the land of Yisra’El. And you shall know that I Am YaHuWaH. “As for you, O house of Yisra’El,” thus said the Master YaHuWaH, “Go, serve each of you his idols, and afterwards, if you are not listening to Me. But do not profane My set-apart Name any more with your gifts and your idols. “For on My set-apart mountain, on the mountain height of Yisra’El,” declares the Master YaHuWaH, “there all the house of Yisra’El, all of them in the land, shall serve Me. There I shall accept them, and there I shall require your offerings and the first-fruits of your offerings, together with all your set-apart gifts. “As a sweet fragrance I shall accept you when I bring you out from the peoples. And I shall gather you out of the lands where you have been scattered. And I shall be set-apart in you before the gentiles.
Yohanan/John 3:3-5 “Yahusha answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born from above, he is unable to “see” the Reign of Elohim.” Nakdimon said to Him, “How is a man able to be born when he is old? Is he able to enter into his mother’s womb a second time and be born? Yahusha answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Ruach, he is unable to Enter Into The Reign of Elohim. We must go through the Way – outer court… the narrow, hard pressed ‘way’.. the Fire and the Water.. Consumed in the Fire of His Ruach.. no more self-rule! and immersed, consumed, enveloped in the Living Water… to be IN Him! the ‘plumb-line’ (sequence of the 22 letters) in the Dabar/Aleph Bet and applied to the diagram/panorama. How we ‘Follow Yahusha’ and ‘Enter-into’ The Reign – The City.
Characteristic 4 of 7
“When YaHuWaH your Elohim brings you into the land which you go to possess, He shall also clear away many nations before you: the Ḥittites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the KENA’ANITES/CANAANITES and the Perizzites and the Ḥiwwites and the Yeḇusites, seven nations greater and mightier than you. And when YaHuWaH your Elohim gives them over to you, you shall smite them and put them under the ban, completely. Make no covenant with them, and show them no favour. Debarim/Deuteronomy 7:1-2 (4 of 7)
These ‘peoples’ are 7 types – characteristics of ‘self-rule’.. that YaHuWaH our Redeemer and Deliverer drove out before us — ‘overcame’.. manifested in the flesh — Yahusha overcame ‘self-awareness’ and never allowed ‘self to rule’ (showing favor to ‘self-awareness’) – disobedience to The Instructions.. in each ‘people type’ we can learn what we also must overcome through His Strength!
Canaanite = see Cana “zealous”
1) descendant of inhabitant of Canaan (adjective)
2) descendant or inhabitant of Canaan (noun)
3) a merchant, trader (noun)
Part of Speech: see above in Definition
A Related Word by BDB/Strong’s Number: patrial from H3667
KENA’ANITES/CANAANITES. This name means merchants who humiliate. They were financial giants. The Canaanites were motivated by greed and lust for the accumulation of earthly and material wealth; a lust for power! This is our enemy too as we can’t serve two masters and this world’s possessions are temporary. Ya’aqob/James 4:4 says “You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against El? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of El.”
Zekaryah/Zachariah 14 at the end of this chapter it tells us that a canaanite will never step foot in the Heikal of YaHuWaH again .. and Yahusha drove those merchants from His Father’s house with great power and force! ~~20. In that day “SET-APART TO YaHuWaH” shall be engraved on the bells (bridles) of the horses. And the pots in the House of YaHuWaH shall be like the bowls before the altar. 21. And every pot in Yerushalayim and Yahudah shall be set-apart to YaHuWaH of hosts. And all those who slaughter shall come and take them and cook in them. And there shall no longer be a merchant in the House of YaHuWaH of hosts, in that day.
Yohanan/John 2:14-17 “And He found in the Set-apart Place those selling oxen and sheep and doves, and the money-changers sitting. And having made a whip of cords, He DROVE THEM ALL OUT of the Set-apart Place, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the moneychangers’ coins and overturned the tables. And He said to those selling doves, “Take these away! Do not make the house of My Father a house of merchandise!”…. And His taught ones remembered that it was written, “The ardour for Your house has eaten Me up.”
Hazon/Revelation 2: 18-29 “Wal-Melek of the assembly in Thyatira write, ‘This says the Son of Elohim, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like burnished brass: I know your works, and love, and service, and belief, and your endurance. And as for your works, the last are more than the first. But I hold against you that you allow that woman Izeḇel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and lead My servants astray to commit whoring and to (eat food/NOT IN TEXT) offered to idols. (((Rather it speaks of “Elohim Acherim” ~ to serve something else with our passion, besides HIM – who is the ONLY Elohim .. which is to give our self too, or take into our heart.. a desire other than ‘obedience to His Governing’))) this is much like the ‘prosperity gospel’ that has developed.. seeking material gain, earthly things as ‘blessing’… when there is no blessing in accumulation of earthly things.. Only the Word of Elohim is Treasure.. pursuing Him is the First and Great Command…(((Mattithyahu/Matthew 2:37-38 “And Yahusha said to him, “ ‘You shall love YaHuWaH your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your mind/soul, and with all your being. This is the First and Great Command.))) “And I gave her time to repent of her whoring, and she did not repent. See, I am throwing her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great affliction, unless they repent of their works. And I shall slay her children with death. And all the assemblies shall know that I am the One searching the kidneys and hearts. And I shall give to each one of you according to your works. And to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not possess this teaching, and who have not known the depths of shatan, as they call them, I am not putting on you another burden. But hold fast what you have until I come. And he who overcomes, and guards My works until the end, to him I shall give authority over the nations, and he shall shepherd them with a rod of iron, as the potter’s vessels shall be broken to pieces, as I also have received from My Father. And I shall give him the morning star. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Ruach says to the assemblies.”
This is where ‘in the plumb-line’ (the sequence of the 22 letters) I am looking for ‘Nun’.. a newborn.. a nursling.. needing to be attached.. latched on! ~~ it is also ‘Shabbatot’ in the process of assembly.. 7 complete Shabbats.. wrapping all our tendrils around the Source.. clinging to HIM in adoration.. ‘bonding’.. to pass under the rod.. and into the bond of the covenant.. (Yehezqel/Ezekiel 20:36-38)
((23“And I shall slay her children with death**. And all the assemblies shall know that I am the One searching the kidneys and hearts. And I shall give to each one of you according to your works.))
Qorintiyim Aleph/1 Corinthians 3: 1-23
And I, brothers, was not able to speak to you as to spiritual ones but as to fleshly, as to babes in Mashiach. I fed you with milk and not with solid food, for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able, for you are still fleshly. For since there is envy, and strife, and divisions among you, are you not fleshly and walking according to man? (**walking according to the flesh, and our ways of ‘thinking’ is death)
Characteristic 5 of 7
“When YaHuWaH your Elohim brings you into the land which you go to possess, He shall also clear away many nations before you: the Ḥittites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Kena‛anites and the PERIZZITES and the Ḥiwwites and the Yeḇusites, seven nations greater and mightier than you. And when YaHuWaH your Elohim gives them over to you, you shall smite them and put them under the ban, completely. Make no covenant with them, and show them no favour.” Debarim/Deuteronomy 7:1-2 (5 of 7)
PERIZZITES. They were people who had separated themselves and lived in unprotected, unwalled villages. They had no discipline and restrictions. This is our enemy because we have to completely surrender ourselves to YaHuWaH’s Instructions ~ His Governing!. Mishle/Proverbs 25:28 says “Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control.”
מְּרִזִּי23 adjective, of a people Perizzite (possibly, but not certainly, connected with above √); — only ׳הַמּ as proper name collective ὁ (οἱ) Φερεζαῖος (+?), of ancient inhabitants of Canaan, + הַכְּנַעֲנִי [q. v.] Gen_13:7; Gen_34:30 (J), Jdg_1:4-5, also in list of peoples dispossessed by Israel Gen_15:20; Exo_3:8 Exo_3:17t.
Hazon/Revelation 11:1-2 “And a reed like a measuring rod was given to me, and the messenger stood, saying, “Rise and measure the Dwelling Place of Elohim, and the altar, and those worshiping in it.. But cast out the court which is outside the Dwelling Place, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the gentiles, and they shall trample the set-apart city under foot for forty-two months (trampled by people without boundaries-following the Instructions of YaHuWaH.. how to be ‘clean, set-apart.. and prepared to ‘enter-in’) without His Instructions… and also the disregard of even the ’10 Commands’ ~ Ketubah.. people have had no boundaries.. this is evident, so evident in the ‘world’ right now, today!! There are ‘no boundaries’.. none! The Standards of YaHuWaH have been trampled underfoot.. and each rules themselves according to their own way.
Hazon/Revelation 3:1. “Wal-Melek of the assembly in Sardis write, ‘He who has the seven Ruachs of Elohim and the seven stars, says this, “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. They have a ‘name’ (to understand His ‘reputation’).. but they are ‘dead’.. they accept and call on Mashiach, understanding that their Maker/Creator is their Redeemer and Deliverer… but they deny the Words of Instruction – The Words of ‘The Father’/Maker-Creator.. and without ‘doing’ the Instructions walking just as Mashiach Yahusha..He ‘instructed us to follow HIM, as HE followed Instruction!!.. there is no ‘Life’.. only the Instructions give us direction in ‘how-to’ walk in The Way, The Truth, The Life. Debarim/Deuteronomy 30:15-16 “See, I have set before you today life and good, and death and evil, in that I am instructing you today to love YaHuWaH your Elohim, to walk in His Ways, and to Guard His Instruction, and His statutes, and His right-rulings. And you shall live and increase and YaHuWaH your Elohim shall bless you in the land which you go to possess. 2“Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your works complete before Elohim. (Yom Teruah! Wake up! The Bridegroom is coming!!! Like water to the seed.. the ‘good seed’ will sprout!! 3“Remember, then, how you have received, and heard. And watch and repent. If, then, you do not wake up, I shall come upon you as a thief, and you shall not know at all what hour I come upon you. 4“Nevertheless, you have a few names in Sardis who have not defiled their garments. And they shall walk with Me in white, because they are worthy. 5“He who overcomes shall be dressed in white robes, and I shall by no means blot out his name from the Book of Life, but I shall confess his name before My Father and before His messengers. 6“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Ruach says to the assemblies.” (Qahal-assembly; the Process of putting together.. according to Instruction.. to Follow the “Pattern”)
Looking here relating to the ‘plumb-line'(the sequence of the 22 letters)… the ‘Lampstand’.. Samek- To be attached to The Source.. filling our ‘vessel’ with the oil.. to be ‘ignited’ by the Presence of His Ruach! this is evident in 1. of Hazon/Revelation 3.. “He who has the seven Ruachs of Elohim and the seven stars,” also; Mattithyahu/Matthew 25:1-13 “Then the Reign of the heavens shall be compared to ten maidens who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. “And five of them were wise, and five foolish/undisciplined/unrestrained. Those who were foolish, having taken their lamps, took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their containers with their lamps. Now while the bridegroom took time, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight a cry was heard, ‘See, the bridegroom is coming, go out to meet him! Then all those maidens rose up and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us of your oil, because our lamps are going out. But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, indeed, there would not be enough for us and you. Instead, go to The Merchant, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast, and the door was shut. And later the other maidens also came, saying, ‘Master, Master, open up for us! But he answering, said, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you. Watch therefore, because you do not know the day nor the hour in which the Son of Adam is coming.” Unless we follow the Instructions we cannot ‘enter-into’ the ‘Dwelling Place’… to be IN Mashiach Yahusha.. we stumble in the outer-court, until we learn to submit to His Supreme Authority. Thus we cannot ‘attach’ umbilically in thought to the Source.. we wither, and will eventually ‘die’..
Like the wild grapevine.. unrestrained.. the tendrils go out and attach to anything seeking support.. Left unattended the wild vines bear little fruit, and smother whatever they have attached to for support…. and like Samek in the ‘plumb-line’ (the sequence of the 22 letters) the ‘Lampstand’ in the Set-Apart Place.. we must be attached to the Vine.. trimmed, and pruned so that all of our ‘everything’ belongs only to YaHuWaH…
Yohanan/John 15:1-6 ““I Am the True Vine, and My Father is the gardener……(((the Gardener trims, and prunes – like the discipline of ‘Following Instruction’.. Right here! Bam! Yahusha just told us.. Follow the Instruction of the Father.. accept discipline, and guidance))) Every branch in Me that bears no fruit He takes away. And every branch that bears fruit He prunes, so that it bears more fruit. You are already clean because of the Word which I have spoken to you. Stay in Me, and I stay in you. As the branch is unable to bear fruit of itself, unless it stays in the vine, so neither you, unless you stay in Me. I Am the Vine, you are the branches. He who stays in Me, and I in him, he bears much fruit. Because without Me you are able to do naught! If anyone does not stay in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up. And they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.”

“When YaHuWaH your Elohim brings you into the land which you go to possess, He shall also clear away many nations before you: the Ḥittites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Kena‛anites and the Perizzites and the ḤIVITES/HIWWITES and the Yeḇusites, seven nations greater and mightier than you. And when YaHuWaH your Elohim gives them over to you, you shall smite them and put them under the ban, completely. Make no covenant with them, and show them no favour.” Debarim/Deuteronomy 7:1-2 (6 of 7)

HIVITES. – Are self-ruling and intoxicated by the thought of the inheritance, entitlement; they are pursuing the ‘crown’ the ‘treasures’ totally missing the point that the ‘crown of gold’ is a Renewed mind. Rather than understanding that their ‘life’ is a sacrifice.. this is evident in the behavior of the pharisees and the priesthood; how they corrupted the ‘lessons’ and used it for enlarging themselves. Forgetting that they are called to live a life of selfless sacrifice. The Hivites begin to think of YaHuWaH as their private waiter, who is there to satisfy every desire in their spoiled and bratty hearts: They claimed to offer a good lifestyle, They lived a very luxurious life. This is our enemy because our spiritual life is a “sacrificial one”.Timotiyos Aleph/1 Timothy 6:10-11 For the “love” of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some, by longing for it, have strayed from the belief, and pierced themselves through with many pains. But you, O’ man of Elohim, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, reverence, belief, love, endurance, meekness.
We are instructed to only ‘love’ YaHuWaH our Elohim, and our neighbor as our self.. (Mattithyahu/Matthew 22:36-40) and Mattithyahu/Matthew 16:24-27 “Then Yahusha said to His taught ones, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his stake, and Follow Me. “For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it, and whoever loses his life for My sake shall find it. “For what is a man profited if he gains all the world, and loses his own life? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his life? “For the Son of Adam is going to come in the esteem of His Father with His messengers, and then He shall reward each according to his works.”
Wayyiqra/Leviticus 20:22-26 “And you shall guard all My statutes and all My right-rulings, and do them, so that the land where I Am bringing you to dwell does not vomit you out. ‘And do not walk in the ways of the nation which I Am ‘driving out’ before you, for they do all these, and therefore I loathed them! But I say to you, “You are going to possess their land, and I Myself give it to you to possess it, a land flowing with milk and honey.” I Am YaHuWaH your Elohim, who has separated you from the peoples. And you shall make a distinction between clean beasts and unclean, and between unclean birds and clean. And do not make yourselves abominable by beast or by bird, or whatever creeps on the ground, which I have separated from you as unclean. And you shall be Set-Apart to Me, for I YaHuWaH Am Set-Apart, and have separated you from the peoples to be Mine”.
We are to be as clean, and pure as the gold of The Ark of the Witness.. our heart filled with the Word of Elohim, guarded!! To have His Instructions written on the tablets of our heart.. and to guard ‘the gates’ guarding our thoughts, to guard the ‘heart’.. the place of desire, our passion – which is to belong only to HIM to be ‘Covered under His Wings’ ~~~Atah-ha’Kaphereth/Kippur-lid or covering of the Ark~~~
Hazon/Revelation 3:7 Wal-Melek of the assembly in Philadelphia write, ‘He who is Set-Apart, He who is Truth, He who has the key of David, He who Opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens, says this:
8“I know your works – see, I have set before you an open door, and no one is able to shut it – that you have little power, yet have guarded My Word, and have not denied My *Name >> His *Shem-He is our Maker! Our Redeemer and Deliverer! The One whom we are ‘birthed’ through; Yeshayahu/Isaiah 43:1-3, 25 — 44:6-8, 45:5,– 45:18-24
Mattithyahu/Matthew 27:50-53 And Yahusha cried out again with a loud voice, and gave up His Ruach. And see, the veil of the Dwelling Place was torn in two from top to bottom, and the earth was shaken, and the rocks were split, and the tombs were opened, and many bodies of the set-apart ones who had fallen asleep were raised, and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection, they went into the set-apart city and appeared to many.”
Hazon/Revelation 3:9-12“See, I am giving up those of the congregation of shatan, who say they are Yahudim and are not, but lie. See, I am making them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. Because you have guarded My Word of endurance, “I also shall *guard you” from the hour of trial which shall come upon all the world, to try those who dwell on the earth. *Day of Covering-Atonement, We are to be clean, and pure of heart – we are to keep and guard like ‘The Ark of the Witness’ His Word/Words.. treasured up in our ‘heart’.)) ((**Debarim/Deuteronomy 32:39-40, Luqas/Luke 24:50-51, Hazon/Revelation 1:17-18)) “See, I am coming speedily! Hold what you have that no one take your *crown. ((*Debarim/Deuteronomy 6:4-9 Application of the Instruction!)) He who overcomes, I shall make him a supporting post in the Dwelling Place of My Elohim, and he shall by no means go out. And I shall write on him the Name of My Elohim and the name of the city of My Elohim, ‘to enter-in’/Chedash – Yerushalayim, which comes down out of the heaven from My Elohim, and My Name. Yohanan/John 8:34-36 “Yahusha answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone doing sin is a servant of sin. And the servant does not stay in the house forever – a son stays forever. If, then, the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”
**Congregation of shatan- those who use His Shem, Renown, Reputation, Fame… to ‘exalt’ themselves.. in position, power over: as an ‘authority’ Mattithyahu/Matthew 23:8-10 “But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi,’ for One is your Teacher, the Messiah, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth your father, for One is your Father, He who is in the heavens. Neither be called leaders, for One is your Leader, the Mashiach. << Read more about not being called a rabbi here…..
It is one thing when self-rule — defies YaHuWaH’s Authority and chooses to do ‘things’ their own way…. it is extraordinarily more offensive, and in outright defiance and stiff-necked rebellion~ to use “His Set-Apart Shem” to exalt ‘oneself’ over others as an authority… Woe!! And ‘these particular’ people do make claim of ‘keeping the Words’ ~ it is not just a ‘Jewish’ thing..
Mattithyahu/Matthew 23:11-39 “But the greatest among you shall be your servant. (Pilipiyim/Philippians 2:3-8)
And whoever exalts himself shall be humbled, and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted. But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you shut up the Reign of the heavens before men, for you do not go in, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in…… Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you eat up widows’ houses, and for a show make long prayers. Because of this you shall receive greater judgment. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you go about the land and the sea to win one convert, and when he is won, you make him a son of Gehenna twofold more than yourselves. Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘Whoever swears by the Dwelling Place, it does not matter, but whoever swears by the gold of the Dwelling Place, is bound by oath. Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gold or the Dwelling Place that sets the gold apart? And, ‘Whoever swears by the altar, it does not matter, but whoever swears by the gift that is on it, is bound by oath.’ Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gift or the altar that sets the gift apart? He, then, who swears by the altar, swears by it and by all that is upon it. And he who swears by the Dwelling Place, swears by it and by Him who is dwelling in it. And he who swears by the heaven, swears by the throne of Elohim and by Him who is sitting upon it. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you tithe the mint and the anise and the cumin, a and have neglected the weightier matters of the Torah: the right-ruling and the compassion and the belief. These need to have been done, without neglecting the others. Blind guides – straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel! Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are filled with plunder and unrighteousness. Blind Pharisee, first clean the inside of the cup and dish, so that the outside of them becomes clean too. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you are like whitewashed tombs which outwardly indeed look well, but inside are filled with dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. So you too outwardly indeed appear righteous to men, but inside you are filled with hypocrisy and lawlessness. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and decorate the monuments of the righteous, and say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have taken part with them in the blood of the prophets. Thus you bear witness against yourselves that you are sons of those who did murder the prophets – and you fill up the measure of your fathers! Serpents, brood of adders! How would you escape the judgment of Gehenna? Because of this, see, I send you prophets, and wise men, and scholars of Scripture. Some of them you shall kill and impale, and some of them you shall flog in your congregations and persecute from city to city, so that on you should come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Heḇel to the blood of Zekaryah, son of Bereḵyah, whom you murdered between the Dwelling Place and the altar. Truly, I say to you, all this shall come upon this generation. Yerushalayim, Yerushalayim, killing the prophets and stoning those who are sent to her! How often I wished to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, but you would not! See! Your house is left to you laid waste, for I say to you, from now on you shall by no means see Me, until you say, ‘Blessed is He who is coming in the Name of YaHuWaH!” Baruk Haba B’Shem YaHuWaH!!
We are at “Ayin” on the ‘plumb-line’ (the sequence of the 22 letters); Regard for regard.. measure for measure… our Regard of HIM and HIS Supreme Authority is the measure of regard HE measures back to us!
Luqas/Luke 12:48 “But he who did not know, yet did what deserved flogging, shall be beaten with few. And everyone to whom much is given, from him much shall be demanded. And to whom much has been entrusted, from him much more shall be asked.”
THE GREATEST AMONG US…. “WAS the SERVANT” we best get under that thought — to be under HIM!
The whole point above in Hivites.. luxury.. just as the pharisees lived ‘exalted’ above the people.. and the part about a life of sacrifice.. this all ‘fits’ perfectly.. with Philadelphia, with Ayin.. with Yom Kippur.. we can never be the ‘ark’ ~’the keeper and guardian of His Heart’ ~ unless we submit, and go through the purging, and purifying… then we can be ‘covered’ by HIM.. under His Wings.. Sheltered, and protected.. “IN” The Strong Tower!

YEBUSITES/JEBUSITES. They were people who exploited and polluted others through immoral activities. This ‘characteristic of ‘self-rule’ is our enemy because our body is designed to be the Dwelling Place of YaHuWaH.. Mattithyahu/Matthew 5:27-28 says “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” (it is about ‘who’ is ruling the desires-and thus; the body!) Shemoth/Exodus 25:9 “they shall make Me a Set-apart Place, and I shall dwell in their midst. According to all that I show you – the pattern of the Dwelling Place and the pattern of all its furnishings – make it exactly so.”
Zekaryah/Zachariah 4:10-14 “For who has despised the day of small beginnings? They shall rejoice when they see the plumb-line in the hand of Zerubbabel. These seven are the eyes of YaHuWaH, which diligently search throughout all the earth. Then I responded and said to him, “What are these two olive trees, one at the right of the lampstand and the other at its left? And I responded a second time and said to him, “What are these two olive branches which empty golden oil from themselves by means of the two gold pipes? And he answered me and said, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my master. And he said, “These are the two anointed ones, who stand beside the Master of all the earth.”
We must be ‘assembled’ according to the ‘instructions’ for His Dwelling Place.. The plumb-line.. walking in The Way, The Truth, The Life.. Following the Example – The Son; Obedience to the instruction of The Father.. His Dwelling Place.. is not assembled by ‘our thoughts, our ways, our plans – self-rule does not build the Dwelling Place.. it is built only by His Plan-His Pattern-His Instruction.
In this ‘process of assembly’ we are now at the 7th ~ (Sukkot; including Shemini Atzeret) and in the ‘plumb-line’ (the sequence of the 22 letters) we are at Peh. And the self-ruling adversary that we are empowered to overcome.. as YaHuWaH drove ‘self-rule’ before us.. is the ‘abundance of the heart’.. and the words which proceed out of our mouth.. Being ruled over by our own perceptions- our own emotions.. basing all of our desires on our own ability to ‘perceive’.. this is what we must sacrifice, lay down, and overcome.. those perceptions are to passionately guard the gates of our senses and emotions.. so that ‘the thoughts’ are guarded, and the ‘heart’ is guarded like a vault of treasure.. because that is what it was designed to be!! The container of His Governing, His Rulership, and Adoration For Him Alone.
Hazon/Revelation 3:14-16 “Wal-Melek of the assembly in Laodikeia write, ‘The AMĕN, the Trustworthy and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of Elohim, says this: “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I would that you were cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I am going to vomit you out of My mouth”.
Mattithyahu/Matthew 22:9-14 “Therefore go into the street corners, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding feast. And those servants went out into the street corners and gathered all whom they found, both wicked and good. And the wedding hall was filled with guests. And when the sovereign came in to view the guests, he saw there a man who had not put on a wedding garment.. and he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here not having a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. Then the sovereign said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and throw him out into the outer darkness – there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen.” ‘outer-darkness’: Wayyiqra/Leviticus 13:46 “He is unclean – all the days he has the infection he is unclean. He is unclean, and he dwells alone, his dwelling place is outside the camp.”
Hazon/Revelation 22:14-15 “I Am the ‘Aleph’ and the ‘Taw’, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last. Blessed are those who wash their garments/robes so that the authority shall be theirs unto the Tree of Life, and to enter through the gates into the city.. But outside are the dogs and those who enchant with drugs, and those who whore, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and all who love and do falsehood.”
Hazon/Revelation 3:17-22 “Because you say, ‘Rich I am, and I am made rich, and need none at all,’ and do not know that you are wretched, and pitiable, and poor, and blind, and naked. I advise you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, a so that you become rich; and white garments, so that you become dressed, so that the shame of your nakedness might not be shown; and anoint your eyes with ointment, so that you see. As many as I love, I reprove and discipline. So be ardent and repent. See, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I shall come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. (Mattithyahu/Matthew 23: 38-39 “See! Your house is left to you laid waste, for I say to you, from now on you shall by no means see Me, until you say, ‘Blessed is He who is coming in the Name of YaHuWaH!” If the ‘Dwelling Place’ is not ‘clean’ by His Standards, according to His Instructions.. He does not inhabit a filthy vessel.. the ‘heart’ must be like the ‘ark of the witness’ clean gold, purified in fire.. a beaten work! and keep and guard His Instructions.. the ‘hearts-desire’ is to ‘obey’.. To him who overcomes I shall give to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Ruach says to the assemblies.”
In the ‘plumb-line’ (the sequence of the 22 letters) this is Peh; Communication; Word/s, Letters, a Language – To reveal; make known His Identity!
Mattithyahu/Matthew 15:17-20 “Do you not understand that whatever enters into the mouth goes into the stomach, and is cast out in the sewer? But what comes out of the mouth comes from “the heart”, and these defile the man. For out of the heart come forth wicked reasonings, murders, adulteries, whorings, thefts, false witnessings, slanders. These defile the man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile the man.”
Luqas/Luke 6:43-46 “For a good tree does not yield rotten fruit, nor does a rotten tree yield good fruit. For each tree is known by its own fruit. For they do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. The good man brings forth what is good out of the good treasure of his heart, and the wicked man brings forth what is wicked out of the wicked treasure of his heart. For out of the overflow of the heart his mouth speaks.. But why do you call Me ‘Master, Master,’ and do not do what I say? “you” “say”, **‘Rich I am, and I am made rich, and need none at all,’ and do not know that you are wretched, and pitiable, and poor, and blind, and naked.
Mattithyahu/Matthew 12:36-37 “And I say to you that for every idle word men speak, they shall give an account of it in the day of judgment. “For by your words you shall be declared righteous, and by your words you shall be declared unrighteous.”
Mal’aki/Malachi 3:1-6 “See, I am sending My messenger, and he shall prepare the way before Me. Then suddenly the Master you are seeking comes to His Hĕḵal, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight. See, He is coming,” said YaHuWaH of hosts. “And who is able to bear the day of His coming, and who is able to stand when He appears? For He is like the fire of a refiner, and like the soap of a launderer. “And He shall sit as a refiner and a cleanser of silver. And He shall cleanse the sons of Lewi, and refine them as gold and silver, and they shall belong to YaHuWaH, bringing near an offering in righteousness. “Then shall the offering of Yahudah and Yerushalayim be pleasant to YaHuWaH, as in the days of old, as in former years. “And I shall draw near to you for right-ruling. And I shall be a swift witness against the practiser’s of witchcraft, and against adulterers, and against them that swear to falsehood, and against those who oppress the wage earner in his wages and widows and the fatherless, and those who turn away a sojourner and do not fear Me,” said YaHuWaH of hosts. For I Am YaHuWaH, I shall Not change, and you, O sons of Ya‛aqoḇ, shall not come to an end.”
Mattithyahu/Matthew 3:12 “His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He shall thoroughly cleanse His threshing-floor, and gather His wheat into the storehouse, but the chaff He shall burn with unquenchable fire.”
Mattithyahu/Matthew 13:30 “Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I shall say to the reapers, “First gather the darnel and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my granary.”
Tehillim/Psalms 24:1-10 “The earth belongs to YaHuWaH, And all that fills it – The world and those who dwell in it. For He has founded it upon the seas, And upon the waters He does establish it. Who does go up into the mountain of YaHuWaH? And who does stand in His set-apart place? He who has innocent hands and a clean heart, Who did not bring his life to naught, And did not swear deceivingly. He receives a blessing from YaHuWaH, And righteousness from the Elohim of his deliverance. This is the generation of those who seek Him; Ya‛aqoḇ, who seek Your face. Selah. Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And let the Sovereign of Esteem come in. Who is this Sovereign of Esteem? YaHuWaH Strong and Mighty, YaHuWaH Mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates! Even lift up, you everlasting doors! And let the Sovereign of Esteem come in. Who is this Sovereign of Esteem? YaHuWaH of Hosts, He is the Sovereign of esteem! Selah.”
