The Law (Torah Study 5773 #36) or the Torah is our schoolmarm as a light to our path unto righteousness to find Yeshua in every verse (John 5:39; John 5:46-47; John 15:7; Zec 4:6). Let the depth of the Scriptures speak to your inner man as manna (Mat 21:42, 22:29). By Torah is the knowledge of sin (Rom. 3:20). It is our schoolmaster (Gal 3:24) unto righteousness to find Yeshua. By Torah we know God’s instruction which are holy, just and true (Rom 7:12). However, salvation only comes through a personal relationship with Yeshua Jesus – the narrow path. Salvation is not by the law (Gal. 2:16) for we, all, are unclean (Isa 64:6) are cannot keep the law; if we could Jesus died in vain (Gal. 2:21).
Interpretation of prophecy requires abiding in the Word of God and having an understanding of the Hebraic roots of the Christian faith. Prophetic insight must be guided by the Holy Spirit. Elsewise, it is as if one is “searching for a needle in a hay stack.” Unless, the Scriptures are opened to your grasp, it can be likened unto “the blind leading the blind.” The Hebrew levels of Bible interpretation are known as the peshat, the remez, the drosh and the sohd (yod) levels (Isaiah 42:18; Deuteronomy 29:29; Romans 15:4).
Peshat-Remez-Drosh-Sohd forms the acronym PRDS or x¥s§r‹P (the Hebrew word pardes (SH# 6508), which means garden or paradise… Garden of Eden.
The Peshat level is simply understanding the literal meaning of the Scripture. It establishes your faith and values system by examples.
- Peshat Gospel is Mark
- In Jewish writings, it corresponds to the Torah and Tanach.
The Remez level relates to, but also expands, the literal interpretation (peshat) with other similar interactive Bible verses of Scripture - expanding a simple painting into a complex design as pearl-stringing or networking verses.
- Gospel of Luke
- Jewish = Mishnah/Germara
The Drosh level of Biblical understanding incorporates the previous two levels, giving you concept-building insight using your acquired integrated knowledge and understanding for prophetic disclosure of that which is hidden in the text.
- Gospel of Matthew
- Jewish Midrash of debating and parable interpretation.
The Sohd (Yod) level: God unveils the Scriptural codex for believers by the Holy Spirit’s divine revelation that brings you into unity with the Word of God, so that the Word becomes “the living WORD.”
- Gospel of John
- Jewish kabala
Numbers 21: 4-9 (KJV) Peshat.. Story line… stiffed-neck Israelites, and judgment by poisonous snakes
Moral statement: sin not – God judges and will punish. Did they remember Korah, the 250 princes, the murmuring of the Israelites and plague death of 14,700? Their murmuring rebellion is death by viper poison. Grave punishment came for murmuring, but now in these circumstances, they acknowledge the LORD and asked Moses to intervene with God for them. Do we experience the sting of the serpent when we turn to the lusts of the flesh, lust of the eyes and pride of life (1 John 2:16) and by gossiping.
Amos 8:11-12 (KJV) “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.” Israel can’t escape the LORD’s judgment….Amos 9:1-4 (KJV)
Remez: What is the bite of the serpent? The serpent in the Garden of Eden beguiled Eve by her lust of the eyes and desire to be a “god.”
Gen 3:4-5 “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”
Who is this beguiling serpent? He is the “prince of this world” - the fallen angel, Lucifer, that old serpent – the devil. He is of the reptilian kingdom as the dragon, the leviathan, the behemoth, the adder, the viper, cockatrice, and the fiery flying serpent.
Now to continuing our journey in remezing the serpent:
Deuteronomy 8:12-15 (KJV) “Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day: Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein; And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied; Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;”
Jer 8:17 “For, behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices, among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, saith the LORD.”
Isa 14:29b ….“for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.”
1 Co 10:9-11 “Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents. Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.”
Serpents are sin!
Now for the Drosh- Prophetic meaning of the serpent on the pole ….To Whom is it pointing?
John 3:9-21 (KJV)
John 12:32 “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.”
2 Co 5:21 “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
Isa 22:22 “And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.”
Rev 1:18 “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”
Now, we are at that the Sohd-Yud level of determining your relationship to that fiery serpent on a pole!
- Divine revelation!
- You find it!
- Be led by the Holy Spirit.
- Gal 5:25 “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”
- Ask for divine revelation.
Separate not yourself from the Lord as did Korah, Dathan and Abiram. The Children of God serve in His Kingdom, for where else can we abide (John 6:68-69)? Abba, Father is a just and righteous God. As the husbandman, He “will prune the goodly vine and every branch in me (Yeshua Jesus), that beareth not fruit he taketh away” (John 15:1). Abba supernaturally intervenes in our lives for judgment of evil, and giving us signs and wonders, provisions and healing our diseases. Yes, your salvation is secured by being “born-again,” being Holy Spirit filled and sealed unto the day of redemption. Don’t stray from the Shepherd’s flock! Such overcomers are secure in the Father’s hand and in Yeshua’s hand.
Numbers 16:23-35 (KJV) A rebellion in the camp! Korah –His name means ice or icy (cold hearted) or to make oneself bald (make barren) or be depilated – to remove hair from body- made bald by self-extraction! The LORD makes a new thing – not dying a common death or having My visitation! (Isa 10:3; Luk 19:44; Lam 4:22)
What supernatural events are in today’s reading?
- “New thing” the rebels were swallowed into the pit (of Hell). Eternal judgment for rebellion against God’s agents – Moses and Aaron!
- judgment for sin as fire from the LORD consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense (Num 16:35).
- Aaron’s censer stops a plague whereby 14,700 Israelites died due to their murmuring against their Shelach (agents) (Num 16:41-50) … “And he (Aaron) stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed” (Num 16:48).
- Signs and wonders: Aarons rod buds (Num 17:1-13)
1 Kings 17:8-16 (KJV) Supernatural provisions for life-sustaining sustenance in the time of a drought (Luk 4:24-27). The Lord’s shelach are “sent out” as the commissioned agents of the Lord. Moses and Elijah were empowered by the Holy Spirit to act in Abba’s stead. A just and righteous God will visit the evil ones living in iniquity, but will not leave, nor forsake His people in dire times (Psa 27:9; Heb 13:5).
Agency: An agent (sokhen or shelach: From Jewish law of Agency (Talmud : Niddah. 72b; Kiddushin. 41b) is regarded as the same as the person himself. An agent acts for one in higher authority with the full authority of the one who sent him (the principle person); any act committed by a duly appointed agent is regarded as having been committed by the principle person, who therefore, bears full responsibility on the part of the agent. EXAMPLES of agency: (Exo 4:16; Exo 7:1). Other examples of intercessors or agents are Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob (Israel), Joseph, Moses, Joshua, Kohen ha’ Gadol (High Priest), Elijah, the prophets, Yeshua Jesus, the Apostles, disciples, …….. You also in-Christ, fit these shoes.
Acts 5:12-16 (KJV) Today, we have seen Scriptural documentation of the power of the Holy Spirit resting upon Abba’s “sent-out” or “chosen” ones and His “called” ones of the kahol, who are commissioned to do His Kingdom work (1 John 4:4 ). Those with the indwelling (tabernacling) of the Holy Spirit, being in the image of Christ, are being prepared to stand against the wiles of the devil. Holy Spirit anointing and power are given to Abba’s agents in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
Act 4:8-10 “Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man (lame man), by what means he is made whole; Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.”
2 Co 12:12 “Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds.”
Mar 16:16-20 “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
Dire times ahead! Doomsday Preppers. They have a survival manual for the” Day of the Lord.”
- Undercover plans
Are they prepared to meet the Lord’s judgment? Know they not that the Day of the LORD is God’s visitation upon the earth for the iniquities of sinners. The wrath of Yeshua, the wrath of the Father and the wrath of the antichrist falls upon Gentiles and Jews. They need, first of all, first spiritual preparation.
Upon what hope do we stand in the days ahead? From today’s teaching:
- God will judge the sinner as a visitation or do a “new thing.”
- The Tanach saints and apostles of Jesus, and you, shall be Abba’s Holy Spirit gifted agents. Remember, grieve not, nor despise not, the Holy Spirit who has sealed you.
- You, likewise, as God’s agents will witness Aaron’s rod bud, healing of the sick, miracles as signs and wonders and provisions from the pot of the widow of Zarephath.
John 15:4-7 “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”
Isa 54:17 “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.”
THE POWER OF GOD’S WORD
Rom 1:16-17 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.”
Watchmen are to keep you alert. They are to warn you not to go back into the world, Egypt or Babylon. We are to come out of Egypt - come out of “the daughter of Babylon” (Torah Study 5773 #15). Harken and warn your children!
Ecc 1:9 “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”
From Exodus, thru the Tanach, to the New Testament Book of Revelation, God reiterates His prophetic warnings – Embedded prophetic themes (1 Co 10:11).
Exodus 10:3-20 (KJV) Desolation of the people and the land is complete by this swarming locust invasion (Exo 10:5)!
Intro: Joel 1:1-9 (KJV)…… Joel 2:1-11 (KJV) Joel’s army! Are they Christians or demons? They defy death and are Spiderman-like and “mighty” men. Have we been exposed to mighty men in our daily lives? Does Hollywood subliminally, psychologically indoctrinate us or is Satan boastful to expose his devious deeds with cartoons, movies and video games of mighty men? The Bible describes nephilim, giants and mighty men. Mighty men of old: Nimrod and as in the days of Noah.
There has been a latter day, Joel’s Army movement by self-appointed prophets fostering “Augustinian Amillennialism” or “Dominion Kingdom Now” theology, who believe that by their apostolic anointing they will bring a great “Azusa Street” type Holy Spirit outpouring. This latter day revival will prepare mankind for the return of the second coming of Christ wherein all eyes will see Him. They will hand over to Yeshua Jesus their divinely restored kingdom on earth. These Reconstructionists believe that they will lead the Church into the golden age of righteousness with the powers of their anointing, bringing man into a perfect society for Jesus Christ. However, Joel is describing an end time demonic army (Hofeldt, Tribulation Birth Pains: The Voice of the prophets). Prophetically, Joel’s Army most likely refers to the opening of the demonic ‘bottomless pit” confining Apollyon (Abaddon or Apollo) and the release of “locusts” with scorpion-like power, reflecting a demonic invasion of the land by the demonic hordes of the Antichrist (Revelation 9:1-12). Certainly, the creation of super-soldiers from either human genetic engineering, or as the by-product of alien abductions, could be part of the “seed” of the Antichrist to bring the world into submission to his Empire (Wikipedia: Transhumanism, Skiba, Horn and Missler).
Ecc 3:15 “That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth* that which is past.” (SH# 1245 * to search out by any method)
A demon possessed individual has great strength and is nearly invincible as seen in the Jesus and Legion encounter (Mar 5:1-5). Ensamples: Goliath and his brothers….The nephilim demigods! (2 Sam 21:20; 1 Ch 20:6) Aforetime is before us (Ecc 1:10). Is Joel’s Army a heretofore never seen demonically enhanced avatar army (transhumant hybrids/demons/ aliens) contrived to function as super-soldiers, man’s next step in evolution!
Are we being conditioned to accept demons and their wickedness: How about video games; Home Land Security issues “zombie alert” (9-7-2012); and New Age Christian Music rooted in rock and roll?
Rock and roll music emphasizes rhythm over harmony. Its roots are found in Haitian voodoo and African paganism. The theta wave intoxicating, voodoo drumbeats are the religious music of pagan rituals to worship the snake god, Dambella, as the participants obtain spiritual possession. The drumbeat induces a serpentine undulation, as being possessed by that serpent demon in a sensualistic, sadistic, enticing dance. This drumbeat fuses the participants as a homogenous, collective body, moving as an undulating single body in pulse with the beat.
A serpentine spirit can possess a human being through voodoo rituals and mind-emptying Eastern Meditation. In yoga exercises and Eastern meditation it is believed that a Kundalini serpent Spirit enters and resides in the sacrum, and ascends up the spine into the base of the brain stem to the hypothalamus to produce Nirvana. An ecstasy rush! Through meditation, and various esoteric practices, an extremely profound mystical experience is produced - A emotional endorphin and serotonin high! Beware of Christian rock and rap as they are based on that foundational theta wave voodoo rhythm. … Do you believe that Satan could bring this music into our Church?
Prepare for the Lie! We will witness signs and lying wonders and overt demonic activity on Earth by the Antichrist and the False Prophet (Torah teaching # 14). We will observe that the locusts of Exodus and Joel are but a shadow of Revelation prophecy to unfold during that “Day of The LORD.” Let us understand Revelation prophecy by an understanding of Hebrew chiastic “octave” structure as a triad “octave-like” presentation. Based upon the Hebrew alephbet octaves (*See Shemini Atzeret teaching on JCIA web under Fall Feasts).
First “Octave-like” of triad Revelation 6:2-8 (KJV) is the opening of the first four seals with the horses of the apocalypse being released. Their demonic power is concealed.
The Second triad-octave … is demonic powers revealed. Revelation 9:1-11(KJV) Are these natural locusts? They can’t eat grass? They have the power of scorpions? Observe they are “shaped like horses” with crowns; faces of man; hair of women; teeth of lions; Iron breast plates; wings; run in battle and inflict death-wish wounds for 5 months with their scorpion tails. What are they? ---A horde of demons! Satan opens the furnaces of hell and releases from the bottomless pit, the locusts reserved until the end-times (Rev 9:5-6) Is this Joel’s demonic army akin to Legion?
Joel 1:6 “For a nation* is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion.”*SH# 1471 âÌåé gôy go’-ee Gentile, heathen, nation, people or a flight of locusts:” Joel’s warning: Joel 1:3 “Tell ye your children ….and their children another generation….dor cheron – A message for the last generation.
Who is their ruler? Apollyon, Abaddon (destroyer)- the “son of perdition” (Apollo). This 2nd “octave-triad” continues their demonic invasion with the 6th Trumpet --- Revelation 9:13-19 Now next-3rd-Tribulation “octave-triad”!...The is the concluding apogee leading to Armageddon.
Revelation 16:12-16 (KJV) A great locust demonic army of 200,000,000 “men” from the East (the sun god, Apollo), empowered by Satan’s forces! All these catastrophic judgments are designed to make men turn to God, yet the majorities do rebel against Him! How can that be? “In that day” man is so indoctrinated to evil as vile humans that they serve the kingdom of darkness being incurably wicked! …. Ra’ ah
Rev 9:20-21 “And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”
Have discernment! Do all roads lead to heaven? Test all things against the WORD: Movies, TV, Radio, Video games, Rock & rap Music, Theta wave Christian music, books, commentaries, mysticism, spiritualism, techniques that empty your mind such as yoga, and avoid the New Bible versions.
In Matthew 24, Jesus gives us a prophetic end-time message. Matthew 24 is the index card to the chronology of the book of the Revelation. One day, as Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives, His disciples came to Him with concern. He gave them a private briefing of end-time events. They were asking two questions:
1. “What are the signs of Your coming?”
2. “What are the signs of the end of the world?”
Jesus answers their second question first. His first response is, “take heed that no man deceives you.” Jesus’ most important concern was to warn of the great deception that will occur in the end-times. That is His “up-front” message in which He states six times- “do not be deceived” (Matthew 24: 4, 11, 23, 24, and 26). LET NO MAN DECEIVE YOU! He knew that in the end-times “even the elect would be deceived, if it were possible” (Mark 13:22). The great lie of the Antichrist will deceive many. Many false prophets will be doing great signs and lying wonders to mislead the multitudes. Satan and his ministers will deceitfully present themselves as angels of light, and ministers of righteousness (2 Corinthians 1:13-15).
“He who has eyes to see and ears to hear” will discern with divine revelation that Joel’s Army (Joel chapter 2) is an end time army of demonic hordes falling upon mankind. It is not Christian revival for mankind’s survival.

Mat 24:35 “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” Mat 13:49-50 “So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.” Rev 2:7 “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.”
Genesis 41:25-41 (KJV) Joseph gives us a Biblical warning: The coming of the 7 year Tribulation and a prophecy for redemption of Israel. Joseph’s brothers are detained 3 days (Gen. 42:17-18) and Simeon is held in bondage in Egypt. “Simeon” means to hear & obey. Shema O’ Israel… Hear this prophecy! 3 days = 3,000 years (Psalm 90:4; 2 Peter 3:8). For 2 days (2,000 years) the Jewish People have not heard the Gospel of Yeshua Jesus. We are on the morning of the third day, a time when will Simeon be released from blindness to hear and obey? Also prophetic: Joseph reveals himself to his brothers two years into the famine (Gen 45:6-7) For 2 days the Jewish People have been blinded to their Messiah and have not heard the Gospel of Salvation through Yeshua Jesus. Today, we are standing at the morning of that third day.
Hos 6:2 “After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.”
Isaiah 42:18 “Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see.” Matthew 23:37-39 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem ….how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.”
Follow the narrow road to become an Overcomer! God’s Immutable WORD needs to be heard by everyone –both Jew & Gentile. Who is the Overcomer?
- Confess (Romans 10:9-10) and believe in Yeshua Jesus ……1 John 5:1-5
- Love God, love brethren, keep commandments
- Live by Faith ….. John 14:15
- Overcome evil ….Romans 12:21
- Resist the devil ...1 John 2:12-14
- Has discernment …..1 John 4:1-6
- Spirit-filled (oil in lamp) …….. 1 John 4:1-6
- Forgives his brother ….. Matthew 18:21-35

- Christ-centered, not self-centered … 1 John 2:15-17
- Now you become Heirs of the Kingdom .Revelation 21:5-8
What is a famine (2 Kings 6:25)? What is a drought? 1 Kings 17:1-16 (KJV)
How long was the drought? (1 Ki 18:1; Luke 4:25; James 5:17) Elijah’s PROPHETIC Scriptures: As referring to the first 3 1/2 years of the coming 7 year Tribulation (42 months, 1260 days). Prophetic of when the 2 witnesses of Book of Revelations call forth a drought upon the Earth.
Rev 11:3, 6a “And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. …. (6a) These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy:
Recall:… “the great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an ass's head was sold for fourscore pieces of silver,” What lies ahead for us?
Mat 24:21-22 “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.”
Understand ye the Kingdom Parables?
Mat 13:10 “And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?” Mar 4:11-13 “And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them. And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?”
Mark 4:3-9 & 4:13-20 (KJV); Matthew 13:36-43 (KJV)
2 Corinthians 4:3-4 (KJV) “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world (Satan) hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”
1 Corinthians 2:9-12 (KJV) “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.”
Yeshua Jesus loves us; He cares (Matthew 6:25-34).
Mat 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
John 15:1-12 (KJV)
Mat 7:17 “Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.”
Mat 7:20 “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”
Your light (kavod) reflects who you are and of which kingdom you serve!
On the Mount, Jesus proclaimed the Beatitudes about us:
Mat 5:14, 16 “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
