My Next Anniversary at a Harlot’s House: What Would My Wife Think?

My wife and I have been happily married for over 30 years. I was thinking today, “What would my wife think, if I were to visit a harlot’s house on our next anniversary?”

I was thinking of how she might respond, and what I would say in return. I can imagine her now saying, “Why, Sweetheart! That’s a lovely idea!”

No–that is NOT what she would say! She would give me a well-deserved kick in the rear, and would then tell me how many ways I had been disobedient to literally hundreds of Scripture passages, and had violated our Marriage Covenant!

My response to her might be, “Oh, but when I went there, I was thinking of YOU! Everything that went on there was in honour of you!” What do you think she would say to that?

Or, I might say, “But I just went there to hear the piano player–you know, the music–and I simply called it ‘Our Anniversary Celebration,’ just as if it really was our anniversary celebration! And I was thinking of YOU all the time I was there!”

No? You don’t think she would buy that?

Then why do we think Yahweh will buy our excuses when we do the same thing to Him–when we celebrate the Anniversary of the Resurrection of His Son, with a cheap, adulterous substitute?

The “Biblical” Resurrection Anniversary of Yahshua occurs three days and three nights after the day of Passover. This Resurrection Anniversary is known in Scripture as the Wave Sheaf offering of Lev. 23:11, also known as the “Day of (early) Firstfruits,” or Yom ha Bikkurim in the Hebrew. It was in fulfillment of this Levitical command that Yahshua, at His resurrection, became the firstfruits of all of mankind (1Co 15:20, 23) to be resurrected from the dead.

However, for nearly 2,000 years most have been going to the “harlot’s house” to celebrate a cheap substitute of this anniversary. Instead they have celebrated a pagan religious holiday, whose roots and practices are full of fertility symbolism and rituals, with a “religious” label added later by the religious authorities–who claim this holiday has ‘something’ to do with the Resurrection of Yahshua.

But this pagan celebration has nothing to do with Yahshua’s Resurrection! This year, the counterfeit is even a month earlier than the TRUE celebration of His Resurrection!

So — will you observe the cheap substitute at a “harlot’s house” this coming Sunday? Or will you wait until the next month, to celebrate the True?

Pastors: Will you be telling your people about the Biblical Resurrection Anniversary — or about its counterfeit?

Remember, those that must remain outside the City includes those that “loveth and maketh (Greek: to make, produce, or celebrate) a lie!” (Rev. 22:15).

Only now are Yahweh’s people beginning to realize they are consorting with a ‘harlot.’ It is time to “come out from among them” (2Cor 6:17; Rev 18:4).

It is time to stop violating Yahweh’s Marriage Covenant!

It is time for Yahweh’s people to say, “Enough!”

It is time to return to the practice of Scripture alone!

    While I do admire your zeal and agree 100% with the message contained in this article, I find your usage of “Yahweh” and “Yahshua” to be…perplexing. Do you not read Hebrew? If not, this could explain why you use these false terms (though, I do admit, transliteration is more art than science).

    First, there is no ‘W’ or W-sound in Hebrew. The closest you can come to is a Vav-Alef (וא) combination. Second, the vowel marks used to arrive at “Yahweh” are for the word Adonai (אדני). As vowel marks were not invented until around 300 BCE, we do not have the correct pronunciation of G-d’s Holy Name. Out of fear of accidently violating the mitzvot of using G-d’s name in vain, the Masorites purposefully used vowel marks for Adonai (אדני) so as to remind everyone not to say His Name in vain. The plain fact is that the pronunciation of YHVH (יהוה) has been lost to us for thousands of years. “Yahweh” may or may not be correct. Most likely, it is not.

    As for the use of “Yahshua”, this ignores both the vowel marks used in Yeshua’s name and the Hebrew language itself. Yeshu’a (ישוע) means, in a literal sense, ‘Salvation’ whereas “Yahshua” (יהשוה) has no meaning at all in Hebrew. In addition, the oldest Hebrew and Aramaic texts use Yeshu’a (ישוע).

    Baruch HaShem,

    Thank you Jason, for stopping by. Sorry it has taken a while to get back to you. You have some good comments, and I wanted to address them with some attention and focus.

    It is good that Yahweh’s children communicate with one another. No one has all the pieces of the puzzle, so we must all share with each other the few pieces we do have, so that we may all begin to see the picture taking shape. I will offer my two shekels worth.

    You mentioned that Yahshua and Yahweh were “false terms” because as you indicated, there is no ‘W’ or W-sound in Hebrew. The closest you can come to is a Vav-Alef. For modern Hebrew, this is true. The ancient rendition of the modern vav- was a “waw-” and scholars think this more closely approximates the letters as originally used. Some today choose to use the “vav” instead, and that is their choice.

    Next you mentioned the vowel pointings used to arrive at “Yahweh” are from the word “Adonai,” which means “my Lord.” These vowel pointings you mention are given deliberately in error, by adherents to forms of “Doctrines of Men” within Judaism, in order to conform to the notion that the name of the Creator must not be correctly pronounced. This notion is merely one of many “fables,” some of which are referred to in Scripture in Titus 1:14, where we learn these fables “turn men from the Truth.”

    You mention the “fear of accidentally violating the mitzvot of using G-d’s name in vain.” Although the Commandment or mitzvot given in Scripture is true, it is the man-made “explanation” of how this “mitzvot” is to be applied that is one of the fables mentioned above. Thus there is created a superstition against pronouncing, or even spelling any words, without using “dashes” to complete the spelling, even for “titles” where the name does not exist. I do not adhere to these superstitions.

    I do, however, promote only the return to the Scriptures. We must keep these “Unleavened” by the Doctrines of Men.

    You mention the Aramaic texts use the word ‘Yeshu’a.’ Are you aware that the writings of the “Oral Torah,” also known as the Talmud, or writings of the “sages,” promote in every way possible, the idea of bringing “shame” on our Beloved Messiah? In keeping with that, they are promoting the use of the alternate “yesh” prefix, which, some say, gives a new meaning: “may his name be defiled forever.”

    That is NOT what I would want to see, and so I look at all the evidence for myself, to decide what the pronunciation may be.

    What I find today, may change tomorrow, if the Scriptures line up, and the quickening of the Holy Spirit reveals it to be so. But the written Scriptures must be foremost, and I do not mean the corrupted manuscript versions, which is another story altogether.

    Lastly, thank you for the “Baruch HaShem” Blessing. But again, I do not call the Creator “HaShem” which means “The Name.” I call Him by His name, which is what all the great men of faith in the Scriptures did, for our example, and for us to imitate.

    In His Love,

    Brother Bill

The Feast of Tabernacles
“You shall keep the Feast of Sukkot seven days, when you have gathered in your produce. You shall rejoice in your feast because the LORD your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work of your hands, so that you will be altogether joyful.” (Deuteronomy 16:13-15)

Those who desire to follow Yahushua Messiah are now preparing to celebrate the Biblical Feast of Tabernacles starting the 15th day of the 7th Biblical month.

Also called ‘Sukkot’ [pronounced ‘sue-coat’] and ‘Feast of Booths’ in Scripture, it is Yahuweh’s Festival of rejoicing. Then at the close of the 7-day Feast of Tabernacles, the Eighth Day celebration [Shemini Atzeret] begins. This 1-day celebration is the culmination of the fall feast-days of Yahuweh, and pictures our eternity with Messiah.

Fall Feast Schedule:The 7th Biblical month begins tentatively at sunset on 21 September 2017, depending on whether the moon is sighted in Israel by the required 2 or 3 witnesses. At the very moment of sighting, the Feast of Trumpets [‘Yom Teruah’ — the day of shouting and alarm] begins. It is at this time that we are to blow the Shofar [‘trumpet’], to announce the start of the first day of the 7th Biblical month.

The Biblical High Sabbath day of the Feast of Trumpets [‘Yom Teruah’] — will tentatively begin at sunset on 21 September 2017, and will continue until sunset the next evening. This day is a ‘High’ Sabbath day, a day of no customary work (Lev 23:24).

The Biblical High Sabbath day of the Day of Atonement [‘Yom Kippur’ — the day of reconciliation] – begins tentatively at sunset 30 September 2017, and continues until sunset the next evening of 01 October. This is a High Sabbath day, a day of no customary work (Lev 23:27-28).

The 7 days of the Biblical Feast of Tabernacles [‘Sukkot’] and the Eighth Day [Shemini] begins tentatively at sunset 5 Octoberber 2017, and continues until sunset on 13 October 2017. The first day and the eighth day are both High Sabbath days, days of no customary work (Lev 23:34-36).

Wake up! Yom Teruah is YHWH’s ‘alarm clock’ to awaken His people, to call them to prepare for Messiah’s soon return! It is the Wise Virgins who follow the examples of Yahushua and the apostle Paul, by keeping Father’s Biblical Feast Days!

The Feasts of YHWH are for ALL of Israel (God’s people), which includes those grafted-in by faith in Messiah!

The Feasts are also vital parts of the Everlasting [New] Covenant, and are vital to our perseverance in holiness! (Lev 23:2,4; Col 1:22-23) (See also Zec 14:16-20)
