Salvation is a FREE gift and only comes through Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ), the Passover lamb sent by Yahweh, because we are in blood covenant with Him. We believe that we cannot earn our salvation, but if we truly love Him we will have fruits of righteousness and obedience. The Scripture states in Matthew 6:21 and Luke 12:34, "Where your treasure is there will your heart be also." Yeshua also said in John 14:15,  "If ye love me, keep my commandments." And John 14:23 says, "Yeshua answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me."

There is one thing I would like to make clear. The Father desires for us to be right with Him and He sent a deliverer as the final sacrifice and atonement for our sins. In the year of Yeshua's death, the last sacrifice  in the temple was made during Passover on the same day that Yeshua died. A holy sacrifice was made! Yeshua was the true, sinless, spotless Passover lamb and His blood now covers/atones for our sins. At the time of His death, the veil which was separating the holy of holies in the temple was ripped from top to the bottom by YAHWEH Almighty and now we all can enter in to the Holy of Holies, boldly into Yahweh’s presence.
Some people don’t see that they have a need for a savior. Just like some people don’t understand that they need a doctor for heart surgery, because they are feeling fine, but when the proof is laid out before them and is revealed, they want to be fixed immediately, no matter what it takes. For a person to understand that they have a need for a savior, they must understand that they have been separated from Yahweh by their sins. That’s what the Torah and commandments are for. They show us what sin is so that we will know that we have a need for a savior.
Yahweh’s nature is pure, holy, and just and NO sin can be in His presence. I liked to give the following illustration when I was preaching out on the streets. If I took a bucket of scum, vomit, manure, maggots, etc. and I were to dump this upon your head when you were all dressed up and ready to get married, you would be angry and want to retaliate against me. You’d be grossed out. But if you were a pig, and I mean a real pig, a big fat pig, you would just eat it up. Pigs eat that because that’s their nature. The can even thrive on it. Just like it is hard for us to comprehend why a pig would want to eat such a disgusting mess, it is equally as hard for us to comprehend the true nature of Yahweh. He cannot allow sin to enter into His presence, because He is holy, holy, holy. He is just. He is awesome. THAT’S WHAT HE IS! When we become born again, we are not rats moved from a dirty cage to a clean cage. We were rats who have become His bride! Yes, HIS bride. You cannot get any more intimate and loving than that. Yahweh wants to call us His bride. So, if we are His bride, let’s look like it, act like it, smell like it, talk like it, work like it, and live like it.
Yeshua has changed my life and He’s still working on me. My best days are but filthy rags compared to Him, but He is faithful and just to forgive us from all unrighteousness. He is my deliverer. My prayer for the body of Messiah is that we would have a hunger and thirst for righteousness and purity and that we would have a deep, true hunger for His word. Please consider the Scriptures below and do your homework.
  • Joh 3:3  Yeshua answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of Yahweh.
  • Rom 3:23  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of Yahweh;
  • Ecc 7:20  For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.
  • Isa 53:6  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and Yahweh hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. 
  • Isa 64:6  But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
  • Jer 17:9  The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
  • Luk 13:3  I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
  • Isa 55:8  For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith Yahweh.
  • Tit 3:4  But after that the kindness and love of Yeshua our Saviour toward man appeared, 5  Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit; 6  Which he shed on us abundantly through Yeshua Messiah our Saviour; 7  That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
  • Gal 2:16  Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Yeshua Messiah, even we have believed in Yeshua Messiah, that we might be justified by the faith of Messiah, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. 
  • Pro 14:12  There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

  • Rom 3:20  Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
  • 1Co 1:21  For after that in the wisdom of Yahweh the world by wisdom knew not Yahweh, it pleased Yahweh by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
  • Eph 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of Yahweh: Eph 2:9  Not of works, lest any man should boast.
  • Rom 5:8  But Yahweh commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Messiah died for us. 9  Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. 10  For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to Yahweh by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. 11  And not only so, but we also joy in Yahweh through our Master Yeshua Messiah, by whom we have now received the atonement.
  • 1Pe 2:21  For even hereunto were ye called: because Messiah also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: 22  Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: 23  Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: 24  Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 25  For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
  • 2Co 5:21  For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of Yahweh in him.
  • 1Co 15:3  For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Messiah died for our sins according to the scriptures;
  • Joh 6:29  Yeshua answered and said unto them, "This is the work of Yahweh, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent." Joh 6:40  "And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day."
  • Joh 5:23  "That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. 24  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life."
  • 1Jo 5:12  He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of Yahweh hath not life. 13  These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of Yahweh; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of Yahweh.
  • Mat 10:32 "Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven."
  • Luk 9:26  "For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.
  • Rom 10:9  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Messiah Yeshua, and shalt believe in thine heart that Yahweh hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 12  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Master over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13  For whosoever shall call upon the name of Yahweh shall be saved.
  • Jam 2:14  What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
  • Jam 2:15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16  And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17  Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. 18  Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. 19  Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 20  But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? 21  Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22  Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? 23  And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed Yahweh, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of Yahweh. 24  Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. 25  Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? 26  For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
  • Phi 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13  For it is Yahweh which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
  • Tit 3:8 This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in Yahweh might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men. 
  • Rom 14:12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to Yahweh.
  • Heb 9:27  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
  • Jos 24:15  And if it seem evil unto you to serve Yahweh, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve Yahweh.
Psa 106:4  Remember me, O Yahweh, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people: O visit me with thy salvation; 5 That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.
Please ask Yeshua to come into your life and take control. Allow Him to guide you. Ask Him to forgive you of all past sins so that you may be covered by His precious blood that was shed so that your sins could be atoned for.  Then the scriptures in 2 Corinthians 5:17,  "Therefore if any man be in Messiah, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." So walk in that newness. Get rid of anything in your life that would cause you to stumble back into sin. Walk upright according to the Scriptures. Yeshua said that if we love Him we would obey His commandments, so I urge you to show Him how much you love Him by your obedience. Pick up a Bible and read it from front to back. Ask Yahweh to reveal truth to you as you study His words. He is faithful to teach His own. Ask Him to continually reveal Himself to you. He WILL do this if  as quoted from Jeremiah 29:13  "And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart."
Psa 119:1  "Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of YAHWEH. 2  Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart. 3  They also do no iniquity (sin): they walk in his ways. 4  Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently. 5  O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes! 6  Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments. 7  I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments. 8  I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly. 9  Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word. 10  With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments. 11  Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. 12  Blessed art thou, O YAHWEH: teach me thy statutes."
May you be blessed as you seek Him and His righteousness.

If you are a RasTafari and you don't believe that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Maschiah (Messiah), please consider the Scriptures that are from the Tanakh, or what is commonly called the Old Testament. We prefer to call it the First Covenant.

Portion Commentary

Holiest Day of the Year

Thought for the Week:

According to the writer of the book of Hebrews, Messiah has become our High Priest. He entered into the Holy of Holies in heaven,��the actual throne room of God,��and applied His own blood for atonement. He entered into the presence of God for us so that He might usher us in as well (Hebrews 9:11,��12). Messiah is our High Priest, ,��a minister in the sanctuary and in the true tabernacle, which the LORD pitched, not man,�� (Hebrews 8:2). Therein He applied His atoning blood. Therefore, the ceremony of the Day of Atonement uniquely patterns the work of Messiah: His death, His sacrifice and the atonement of His blood. We boldly enter the presence of God because the blood of Messiah covers us. Today He stands interceding on our behalf before the throne of God, just like a high priest.


The LORD said to Moses, ,��Tell your brother Aaron that he shall not enter at any time into the holy place inside the veil, before the mercy seat which is on the ark, or he will die; for I will appear in the cloud over the mercy seat.,�� (Leviticus 16:2)

After the deaths of the two sons of Aaron, the LORD warned Aaron not to enter the Holy of Holies but once a year. On that day, Aaron alone (or the high priest after him) was to enter in order to make atonement for Israel, the holy place and the altar. The day on which the high priest entered the Holy of Holies was called the Day of Atonement. Even then, Aaron was to enter only with blood and under the cloud of incense. Leviticus 16, the Torah reading for the Day of Atonement, describes the Tabernacle/Temple ceremony of the Day of Atonement: the two goats,��the sin offering and the scapegoat,��the incense, the sprinkling with blood and the high priest,��s entrance into the Holy of Holies. In Leviticus 16 we read about the intersection of three spheres of holiness. On the holiest day of the year (the Day of Atonement), the holiest man in the world (the high priest of Israel) goes into the holiest place in the world (the Holy of Holies). The high priest had to enter in order to make atonement for Israel, atonement for the Holy of Holies, atonement for the Tabernacle and atonement for the altar. Because these things remained continually in the presence of God, they needed to be atoned for. Without atonement they could not remain in the presence of God.

The Day of Atonement is the holiest day of the year. All of God,��s appointed times are holy to the LORD, but the Day of Atonement is the holiest of all. It is set apart even from the other holy days.

All other Sabbaths and holidays are times of feasting and celebration. However, on the Day of Atonement, everyone is commanded to afflict himself through fasting and abstinence. The LORD says, ,��If there is any person who will not afflict his soul on this same day, he shall be cut off from his people,�� (Leviticus 23:29).
