The Arm of YHVH

Posted on Jan 29, 2015

012415sp by Rabbi Paul Falk.    The Arm of YHVH is a metaphor meaning His strength and power. The events of John chapter 12 occur just prior to THE Passover when he became our passover lamb. We can find multiple parallels with Y’shua’s account and the original Passover in Exodus to help us understand the Arm of YHVH a bit more. “But although he had done so many signs before them, they did not believe in him so that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke: YHVH, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of YHVH been revealed?”  John 12:37-38 &Isaiah 53:1      What do those verses mean?        1. ‘he had done so many signs before them’  —   Y’shua performed many signs in YHVH’s name just as Moses performed many signs in Egypt in YHVH’s name “Father, glorify Your name.” Then a voice came from Heaven saying, “I have both glorified it and will glorify it again” John 12:28,    2. ‘they did not believe in him’  —   not believing in Y’shua meant not believing in YHVH (John 12:44) just as those who believed in Moses believed in YHVH (Exodus 14:31)    3. ..’so that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled’  —  fulfill means to make real or true. It does not in any way mean that it can only be fulfilled once or that once it has been fulfilled it is somehow then made null or void  … The Arm of YHVH by RPF Play Now | Play in Popup |...

Revelation in Light of Israel’s Prophets

Posted on Jan 19, 2015

011715sd  by Rabbi Dennis Richards. Torah = Gen-Deut (written by the hand of God and given to Moses)Tanakh = Gen – Malachi (“old” testament) The New Testament is incomprehensible without the “Old” Testament. We need to be well-versed in Torah. Torah defines sin. Sin is transgression of Torah (the law) 1 John 3:4 Torah was written for us. It’s for learning through patience and comfort to have hope!  Romans 15:4 Torah gives us the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith in the Messiah/Word              2 Timothy 3:14-15 Torah (ALL Scripture) is inspired by God and profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction in righteousness 2 Timothy 3:16 What did Paul mean by “all Scripture”? Would Paul consider his personal letters, written to specific congregations he was leading, to be Scripture? Paul reiterates many commandments from Torah and also gives some his own advice in his letters. 1 Cor 7:12, 25; 2 Cor 11:17  His advice is NOT Scripture. It is advice from him to specific people and congregations with specific problems (see the Scripture references above) The book of Revelation is baffling without knowledge of the Tanakh. 404 verses in Revelation. 278 of those reference the Tanakh Tanakh has 39 books. 24 of those are referenced in Revelation.
