A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN

YAHWEH’S INVITATION TO THE WEDDING
“The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. He sent
his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to
come. Then he sent some more servants and said, ‘Tell those who have been invited that I have
prepared my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle have been butchered, and everything is ready.
Come to the wedding banquet.’ But they paid no attention and went off—one to his field, another to
his business. The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them. The king was enraged. He
sent his army and destroyed those murderers and burned their city. Then he said to his servants,
‘The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. Go to the street corners
and invite to the banquet anyone you find.’ So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all
the people they could find, both good and bad, and the wedding hall was filled with guests. But when
2the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes.
‘Friend,’ he asked, ‘how did you get in here without wedding clothes?’ The man was speechless. Then
the king told the attendants, ‘Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where
there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ For many are invited, but few are chosen. (Matthew
22:2-14)”
Yahweh had been faithfully courting Abram. Three times Yahweh renewed, expanded and
strengthened His commitment to him. Now Abram is ninety-nine years old. It’s been thirteen years since
Ishmael’s birth. Upon Ishmael reaching the age of covenant, Yahweh makes Abram take responsibility for
the consequences of his past choice, poor as it was, before Yahweh will continue with the intimacy of their
relationship. For thirteen years Yahweh waits in silence while Abram takes care of business at home.
Pouring his affections and hopes into his son Ishmael (17:18; 21:11). Now Yahweh breaks the deafening
silence.
“And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, Yahweh appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I
am El Shaddai; walk before me, and be thou perfect. And I will make my covenant between me and
thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly. And Abram fell on his face: and Elohim talked with him,
saying, As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be the father of a multitude of
nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for the
father of a multitude of nations have I made thee. (Genesis 17:1-5)”
The courtship is over. It’s time for the wedding. The intimate promises will not only be renewed,
they will be expanded and ratified into a formal covenant. Abram must now take his wedding vows and
publicly identify with his Elohim. The covenant that Yahweh had unconditionally promised in chapter 15
must to be confirmed by Abram now.
Yahweh begins the ceremony. He opens with the announcement of a new title for himself, “El
Shaddai,” the All Sufficient One. He had formally been known as “El,” the Mighty. The implication is
that whatever Yahweh asks from us, He promises to do in us. Even today, the three Hebrew letters for
Shaddai can still be found engraved on our mezuzahs.
Like Enoch of old (Genesis 5:22, 24) Yahweh tells Abram, “Walk before Me and be blameless.”
Abram is to take every step of his life with a keen awareness of Yahweh’s Holy Presence and week His
direction.
“The steps of a righteous man are ordered by Yahweh, and He delights in his way. (Psalm 37:23)”
There must be no double mindedness in Abram’s commitment, no divided loyalties, no infidelity.
The Scriptures says that Noah “walked blameless” before Yahweh (Genesis 6:9), a man of strong integrity
that his whole family could count on. Even when he was told to build a boat, something that was totally
abstract for him, he did it because he believed totally in Yahweh.
With this commitment Yahweh’s covenant will be ratified, and Abram will find himself blessed
with fertility to have his promised son. Choked with awe, Abram collapses face down before his CreatorKing – Elohim – the only human response to such a holy experience.
THE HOLY VOWS
“As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be the father of a multitude (majority) of
nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for the
father of a majority of nations have I made thee. And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will
make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. And I will establish my covenant between me
and thee and thy seed after thee throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be an
Elohim unto thee and to thy seed after thee. And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the
land of thy sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their
Elohim. (Genesis 17:3-8)”
Listen to the legal promise: “As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be
the father of a majority of nations.” To strengthen the point, just as Yahweh revealed another layer of
Who He was and revealed this by taking a new title, El Shaddai, so now He bestows on Abram a new title
to signify what He will do for him. Abram (“exalted father”) now becomes Abraham (“father of the
majority “).
When Yahweh first spoke to Abram he promised He would make him “a great nation” (12:2).
Later, He expanded this to “as numerous as the dust of the earth” (13:16); and then “as many as the
stars” (15:5). Now Yahweh further expands the promise, promising to make Abraham’s line so fertile that
3he will bear a majority of nations, even kings. This answers why Yahweh dispersed Israel all over the
world. According to this vow, the majority of people on this planet are descendants of Abraham and
uniquely Israelites whether they realize it or not. Not only is the promise expanded, its guaranteed.
Mankind has been commanded, “be fruitful” but with Abraham the command becomes, “I shall
make you fruitful.”
THE ETERNAL LOVE RELATIONSHIP
“And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee throughout their
generations for an everlasting covenant, to be an Elohim unto thee and to thy seed after thee.
(Genesis 17:7)”
All that Yahweh is to Abraham is now promised in full to all of Abraham’s family down through
the ages. Hopes, dreams and desires become covenantal promises, covenantal promises become universal
blessings, and universal blessings become land-locked into eternity.
Following down through time, with every patriarch and the covenant made with that family one becomes
awestruck at how Yahweh’s grace keeps expanding in breadth and depth over time. The fire of Yahweh’s
love never grows cold. It is white hot with passion and it intensifies with the years. But there is still more.
Yahweh promises Abraham a land to call home.
THE ETERNAL LAND COVENANT
“…I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land of thy sojournings, all the land of
Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their Elohim. (Genesis 17:8)”
Yahweh now reaffirms and strengthens the promise of “land.” First, Yahweh mentioned it as,
“this land” (12:7), then it became “all the land which you see” (13:15), and finally, natural borders were
delineated, “from the river of Egypt as far as the great river, the river Euphrates” (15:18). To that
expansive promise Yahweh now adds, “I shall give to you…the whole land of Canaan as a permanent
holding” (17:8). In other words, the land where Abraham has been wandering as an alien is now the
Promise Land and will be his one-day in its entirety, and forever.
“By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed to go out unto a place which he was to receive for an
inheritance; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he became a sojourner in the
land of promise, as in a land not his own, dwelling in tents, with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him
of the same promise: for he looked for the city which hath the foundations, whose builder and maker
is Elohim. (Hebrews 11:8-10)”
Yahweh is so passionate to love us and give us everything; He will not rest until His promises are
sealed in a formal covenant of “marriage.” Notice in this marriage covenant there is no out clause that says,
“until death do us part.” Yahweh’s vows continue for eternity.
THE ANSWER: “AS FOR YOU”
Yahweh has said what He will give in this marriage now it is time for Abraham to reciprocate.
“And Elohim said unto Abraham, And as for thee, thou shalt keep my covenant, thou, and thy seed
after thee throughout their generations. This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and
you and thy seed after thee: every male among you shall be circumcised. And ye shall be circumcised
in the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of a covenant betwixt me and you… And the
uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, that soul shall be cut off from
his people; he hath broken my covenant. (Genesis 17:9-14)”
Yahweh writes all the vows in this wedding. There is no pre-nuptial agreement. There is no
negotiating different levels of commitment nor reinterpretation of marriage nor talk of just a civil union. It
is a marriage or nothing! Abraham is asked to wear a sign of fidelity, the wedding ring rite of circumcision.
He must undergo a bloody mark on his flesh, one that cuts deep into his identity as a man and deeply into
his sexuality.
When Yahweh first inaugurated the covenant, Abraham cut animals in two (15:10), but only
Yahweh, represented by a burning torch, passed between the animals, indicating that the fulfillment of the
covenant depended solely on him. Now, however, Yahweh asks Abraham to reciprocate with his own
blood to ratify what Yahweh had already started.
“In fact, the Torah requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding
of blood there is no forgiveness. (Hebrews 9:22)”
Circumcision is a penetrating token of covenant signifying that the blessings which Yahweh
promised arise out of the weakness (“cutting off”) of ones own flesh.
4“…the real Jew is one inwardly; and true circumcision is of the heart: spiritual rather than literal; so
his praise comes not from other people; but from Elohim. (Romans 2:29-30)” In other words, before
Abraham could circumcise his flesh he had to circumcise his heart. If you give a wedding ring to someone
who doesn’t love you your marriage is a divorce waiting to happen. Circumcision is a sign from which no
Israelite male could escape from at any point in his life, it is there to prod us to “walk blameless” before
their Yahweh.
When Elijah the prophet needed an answer from Yahweh he approached the heavenly Father by
the token of the covenant: “Eliyahu went up to the top of Carmel; and he bowed himself down upon
the earth, and put his face between his knees. (1 Kings 18:42)” Israel needed rain so Elijah pulled out
all the stops and directed Yahweh’s attention to the token of the covenant. “And it came to pass in a little
while, that the heavens grew black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. (1 Kings 18:45)”
Having the mantle of spiritual leadership for his home, Abraham cannot keep his faith merely
personal and privatized for the love of his soul alone.
“And every male among you who is eight days old shall be circumcised throughout your generations,
a servant who is born in the house or who is bought with money from any foreigner, who is not of
your descendants. A servant who is born in your house or who is bought with your money shall
surely be circumcised; thus shall My covenant be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant. (Genesis
17:12,13)”
Every Covenant keeping Israelite parent, especially the father is commanded to bring the covenant
rule upon every child immediately after birth (eight days). If a covenant keeping Israelite father truly
belongs to Yahweh, will not be lax or casual in the spiritual instruction of his children.
“Hear, O Israel: Yahweh our Elohim is one Yahweh: and thou shalt love Yahweh thy Elohim with all
thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this
day, shall be upon thy heart; and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of
them when thou sittest in thy house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down,
and when thou risest up. (Deuteronomy 6:4-7)”
The word “diligently” comes from the Hebrew word “shanan {shaw-nan’}” that comes from the
root word “shen {shane}” for “tooth.” The cutting teeth are called incisors, so the usage of shanan for
diligently means to do something “incisively,” or “with a bite.” No one is exempt whether born, adopted or
redeemed is to be given the spiritual education that dignifies their souls and makes them a full member of
the covenant community of the Commonwealth of Israel. This is a powerful promise, if the covenant
keeper is faithful to his covenantal vows, then his home will be thoroughly infected with the love of
Yahweh. No one will be left out.
This is what the Book of Philemon is all about. Bro. Philemon has not treated his servant
Onesimus in the Deuteronomy 6:4-7 mode. Rabbi Sha’ul converts Onesimus, and teaches him the
Covenant then sends him home no longer a slave, but a beloved fellow brother of the Commonwealth of
Israel (Philemon 16).
Bringing this up to date in our times, this commandment has grave implications for the employer
today. Do you give your employees the dignity of knowing the blessed Covenant, or are they mere tools in
your service?
THE PENALTY OF REFUSAL
“And the uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, that soul shall be cut
off from his people; he hath broken my covenant. (Genesis 17:14)”
When a person refuses to wear his wedding band we question his fidelity. Likewise, if the
covenant keeper refuses the token of their wedding vow Yahweh separates them from the community as
though they are dead. The “judgment of the flesh” is inevitable, the only question is whether we submit to
it now or later. It is like a doctor telling someone with cancer they must submit to the knife or you will die.
Thus the seriousness of the covenant is sealed with a severe warning, just as with the end of the
wedding ceremony, “What therefore Yahweh has joined together, let no man separate” (Mark 10:9).
A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN
“For you are a holy people to Yahweh your Elohim; Yahweh your Elohim has chosen you to be a
people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth. Yahweh did not
set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you
were the least of all peoples (Deuteronomy 7:5-7).”
5“You did not choose me, but I chose you” (John 15:16).
Yahweh has chosen you to be a part of His bride. The bride will be taken out from His body (of
Believers), just as Chavah (Eve) was taken from Adam. However, Believers who continue to live a
worldly, or carnal lifestyle not living the vows will not be ready to meet the Bridegroom (the Adam
Kadmon – the Express Image of Yahweh – King Messiah YahShua) because they lack the purity (holiness)
and the commitment of a spotless bride. Come away with the lover of your soul now and make yourself
ready for His return!
“…you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you
may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light who once
were not a people but are now the people of Yahweh, who had not obtained mercy but now have
obtained mercy. (1 Peter 2:9,10)”
THE DOWRY RANSOM IS PAID
“…ye were bought with a price: glorify Elohim therefore in your body. (1 Corinthians 6:20)”
The Bridegroom values and cherishes his bride by paying a ‘mohar,’ or price, for his bride to her
father. As His beloved bride, we have been “bought with a price” and no longer belong to ourselves. We
are His – totally.
“For Elohim so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him
should not perish, but have eternal life. For Elohim sent not the Son into the world to judge the
world; but that the world should be saved through him. He that believeth on him is not judged: he
that believeth not hath been judged already, because he hath not believed on the name of the only
begotten Son of Elohim. (John 3:16-18)”
THE BRIDES ANOINTING
During the Messiah’s final agonizing hours in Gethsemane, the weight of the world’s sins crushed
our Savior like an olive press, causing Him to sweat great tears of blood. Bruised under the weight of
agony, Messiah YahShua earnestly prays. Beads of sweat like huge drops of blood fall upon the earth.
Alone, while he prays, “If Thou be willing, remove this cup from Me. (Luke 22:42,44)” His bitter
suffering can be compared to myrrh, a highly-prized spice used for perfumes and incense, extracted by
piercing the tree’s heartwood and allowing the gum to trickle out and harden into bitter, aromatic red
droplets called ‘tears’. His heart aches with a dying love for His bride. The Express Image of Yahweh
knows the deep intimacy He once enjoyed with mankind in the Garden of Eden can only be recaptured if
He lays down His life for them. With unconditional acceptance, Messiah YahShua trusts His Father’s
decision and says, “Nevertheless, not My will but Thine, be done.”
THE WEDDING CUP
“Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is shed
for you” (Luke 22:20).
“Behold, the days are coming, says Yahweh, when I will make a new covenant with the House of
Israel and with the House of YaHudah “not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers
in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which
they broke, though I was a husband to them, says Yahweh. “But this is the covenant that I will make
with the House of Israel after those days, says Yahweh: I will put My Torah in their minds, and write
it on their hearts; and I will be their El, and they shall be My people. “No more shall every man teach
his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know Yahweh,’ for they all shall know Me, from
the least of them to the greatest of them, says Yahweh. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I
will remember no more.” (Jeremiah 31:31-34 & Hebrews 8:8-10).
For the Bride to accept the vow she must drink from the ‘Kiddush’ (sanctification) cup, she shows
her willingness to enter this union of covenant. Their shared cup of wine at a betrothal ceremony called
‘B’rit’ (covenant) symbolizes the sealing of their marriage covenant.
AHAVAH: A LOVE TO DIE FOR
“This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one
than this, than to lay down one’s life for his lover. You are My lovers if you do whatever I command
you. (John 15:12-14)”
So when Rebbe YahShua had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head,
He gave up His spirit’ (John 19:30).
6In Hebrew, the root word for finish is ka’lal, (complete, make perfect). It also shares the same root
for ‘kallah’ (bride). With Rebbe YahShua’s final and dying words, He sealed the marriage covenant to His
beloved with His blood.
THE KETUBAH
“Therefore I will allure her and bring her into the WILDERNESS, and speak comfortably unto her
…and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope. There she shall sing there as in the days of her
youth and AS IN THE DAY WHEN SHE CAME UP OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT. (Hosea
2:1,15)”
“I will betroth thee unto me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in
judgment, and in lovingkindness, and in mercies. (Hosea 2:19)”
In the betrothal, the loving couple enters into a covenant with the signing of the Ketubah. The
Ketubah spells out provisions the bridegroom agrees to make for the bride (including food, clothing and
conjugal rights), and also names the wife as joint heir to the estate. The Ketubah is read aloud for all to hear
of their mutual devotion toward one another.
“[Moses] took the Book of the Covenant, and read in the audience of the people (of Israel): and they
said, ‘All that Yahweh hath spoken will we do, and hear.’ (Deuteronomy 24:7)”
Properly signed and witnessed, the Ketubah is given to the bride, and she is instructed to keep it
with her at all times, since there can be no marital relations nor inheritance if it is lost or destroyed.
THE VOW OF LAND
“These are the words of the covenant which Yahweh commanded Moses to make with the children of
Israel in the land of Moab, besides the covenant which he made with them in Horeb…when ye came
unto this place, Sihon the king of Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, came out against us unto
battle, and we smote them: and we took their land, and gave it for an inheritance unto the
Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the half-tribe of the Manassites. Keep therefore the words of
this covenant, and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do. Ye stand this day all of you before
Yahweh your Elohim; your heads, your tribes, your elders, and your officers, even all the men of
Israel, your little ones, your wives, and thy sojourner that is in the midst of thy camps, from the
hewer of thy wood unto the drawer of thy water; that thou mayest enter into the covenant of Yahweh
thy Elohim, and into his oath, which Yahweh thy Elohim maketh with thee this day; that he may
establish thee this day unto himself for a people, and that he may be unto thee an Elohim, as he spake
unto thee, and as he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. Neither with you
only do I make this covenant and this oath, but with him that standeth here with us this day before
Yahweh our Elohim, and also with him that is not here with us this day; (Deuteronomy 29:1,7-15)”
This is the first mention of the New Covenant and it comes 40 years after the Sinai Covenant and
after Israel had wandered in the wilderness until the generation that had refused to enter the Promised Land
had passed away. That generation had not been married to the land. They were constantly looking over
their shoulder, like Lot’s wife, at what the world had to offer.
Besides the promises that Yahweh would bless them if they obeyed His commandments and curse
them if they disobeyed, the New Covenant also contains some special promises to Israel. Yahweh
promises to gather the scattered Israelites from all over the world and to bring them back into the land He
had promised to our ancestors (Deuteronomy 30:3-5). Second, Yahweh promises to regenerate the Israelites
by circumcising their hearts through New Birth so that they would love Him totally. (Deuteronomy 30:6)
Third, Yahweh promises to judge Israel’s enemies (Deuteronomy 30:7) and fourth, that Israelites will
ultimately obey Yahweh and Yahweh will prosper them in their obedience (Deuteronomy 30:8-9).
“Behold, I will gather them out of all the countries, whither I have driven them in Mine anger, and in
My wrath, and in great indignation; and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause
them to dwell safely: and they shall be my people, and I will be their Elohim: and I will give them one
heart and one way, that they may fear Me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after
them: and I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from following
them, to do them good; and I will put My fear in their hearts, that they may not depart from Me.
Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with My
whole heart and with My whole soul. For thus saith Yahweh: Like as I have brought all this great
evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them. And fields
shall be bought in this land, whereof ye say, It is desolate, without man or beast; it is given into the
hand of the [Iraqis]. Men shall buy fields for money, and subscribe the deeds, and seal them, and call
7witnesses, in the land of Benjamin, and in the places about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, and
in the cities of the hill-country, and in the cities of the lowland, and in the cities of the South: for I
will cause their captivity to return, saith Yahweh.(Jeremiah 32:37-44)”
“Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Adonai Yahweh: I do not this for your sake, O
house of Israel, but for my holy name, which ye have profaned among the nations, whither ye went.
And I will sanctify my great name, which hath been profaned among the nations, which ye have
profaned in the midst of them; and the nations shall know that I am Yahweh, saith the Adonai
Yahweh, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes. For I will take you from among the
nations, and gather you out of all the countries, and will bring you into your own land. And I will
sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols,
will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you; and I will
take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my
Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep mine ordinances, and do
them. And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will
be your Elohim. And I will save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the grain, and
will multiply it, and lay no famine upon you. And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase
of the field, that ye may receive no more the reproach of famine among the nations. Then shall ye
remember your evil ways, and your doings that were not good; and ye shall loathe yourselves in your
own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations. Nor for your sake do I this, saith the Adonai
Yahweh, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your ways, O house of Israel. Thus
saith the Adonai Yahweh: In the day that I cleanse you from all your iniquities, I will cause the cities
to be inhabited, and the waste places shall be builded. And the land that was desolate shall be tilled,
whereas it was a desolation in the sight of all that passed by. And they shall say, This land that was
desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are fortified
and inhabited. Then the Goyim (nations) that are left round about you shall know that I, Yahweh,
have builded the ruined places, and planted that which was desolate: I, Yahweh, have spoken it, and
I will do it. Thus saith the Adonai Yahweh: For this, moreover, will I be inquired of by the house of
Israel, to do it for them: I will increase them with men like a flock. As the flock for sacrifice, as the
flock of Jerusalem in her appointed feasts, so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men; and
they shall know that I am Yahweh. (Ezekiel 36:22-38)”
The New Covenant reinforces the promises made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob that Yahweh
would establish the Commonwealth of Israel as His chosen people. (Deuteronomy 29:13). The New
Covenant stands as a bulwark against crisis theology and replacement theology, Yahweh knew full well His
people would turn from Him and His covenants and turn to idols and acts like the Goyim. This is why He
also promises to one day restore them to the land and have compassion on them (Deuteronomy 30:1-3). So,
the ultimate outcome of the New Covenant does not depend on Israel for obedience but instead depends on
Yahweh and His faithfulness. There is coming a day when Yahweh will return them to the land and they will
possess it and Yahweh will bless them forever and Yahweh will circumcise their heart so that they will obey
Him, (Deuteronomy 30:6) and the seed of Abraham will possess the Promised Land forever.
ARE YOU MARRIED OR JUST LIVING TOGETHER?
Many of you have known Yahweh for years, some of you like me do not remember a time you
were without Yahweh. Like Abraham, you have been touched by Covenant and experienced his miraculous
deliverance. You have felt him deeply in your soul and sensed your bones tingle with awe in His presence.
But do you own Him and His Covenant? Have you taken your wedding vows? Have you renounced selfeffort and called him Sovereign? Or have you remained a casual lover, living privately with him but never
committing to the Covenant? Do you sense a bond to your inheritance? Are you ready to take the vow?
The good news is that Yahweh is so richly in love with you, He will give you everything if you
will commit your life to Him and accept His Covenant. Will you circumcise your heart anew and afresh?
“For neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, if you are not a new creature. And as
many as shall walk by this rule, peace be upon them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of Elohim.
Henceforth, let no man trouble me; for I bear branded on my body the marks of YahShua. The grace
of our King YahShua Ha Moshiach be with your spirit, brethren. Amein. (Galatians 6:15-18)”
“Take heed lest there shall be any one that maketh spoil of you through his philosophy and vain
deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Moshiach: for in
him dwelleth all the fulness of the likeness of Elohim physically, and in him ye are made full, who is
8the head of all principality and power: in whom ye were also circumcised with a circumcision not
made with hands, in the putting off of the body of the flesh, in the circumcision of Moshiach; having
been buried with him in immersion, wherein ye were also raised with him through faith in the
working of Elohim, who raised him from the dead. And you, being dead through your trespasses and
the uncircumcision of your flesh, you, I say, did he make alive together with him, having forgiven us
all our trespasses; having blotted out the bond written in ordinances that was against us, which was
contrary to us: and he hath taken it out that way, nailing it to the Tree; having despoiled the
principalities and the powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
(Colossians 2:8-15)”
Are you enjoying the gift of children? Nothing brings more joy to the heart than birthing children.
And nothing can be compared to the joy of making disciples. Yahweh wants to marry you so that together
you can give birth to a new generation that has never heard of His love or His covenant.
In 1999 I heard Bro. Anges Wooten challenge me, “Judah has been in the land since 1917. He
fought to bring the establishment of Israel in 1948 taking it from the faith realm into manifestation. Again
Yahweh pushed Judah into taking the land for the rest of the tribes. Today Judah guards the Holy Land
alone with Benjamin while the rest of Israel waits. Even if every Jew from all over the world goes back to
the Land it would not be enough to secure the land, there is only 14.1 million Jews in the World.” Bro.
Anges Wooten, a retired full bird colonel says it will take 200 million to secure the land, where do you get
them? You get them from Ephraim – the other 10 tribes.
“I have surely heard Ephraim bemoaning himself: ‘You have chastised me, and I was chastised, like
an untrained bull; restore me, and I will return, for You are Yahweh my Elohim. (Jeremiah 31:18)”
Though it is not yet time to return, are you so married to the land that it is part of your identity?
Can you let go of the dispersion and rise up and return to Zion? Have you heard the call? Have you taken
the vow?
“I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd layeth down his life for the sheep… I am the good
shepherd; and I know mine own, and mine own know me, even as the Father knoweth me, and I
know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. And other sheep I have, which are not of this
fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice: and they shall become one flock, one
