*Time has been set back one year to adjust for House of Yudah's membership into the UN in 1949 CE. Originally I had the time set at 1948 CE when they became a nation, but I see now that they did not put themselves under the Babylonian king’s thumb until 1949 CE. In Yirmiyah 25:12 and Daniy'Yah 9:2, YaHVeH has established a 70 year time line for the king of Babylon to be destroyed.
1 Corinthians: 13:12: For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
Scripture is taken from KJV and edited to remove blasphemous names (Rev. 17:3), words and titles and to give a more Iybriy/Hebrew rooted understanding; edited also because the "Mother of Harlots" has inserted these names to cover up the names of YaHVeH/יהוה and HIS Ben Yahvshua/יהושׁוּע, and to counterfeit a Babylonian Greco-Roman "god", "lord" "Jesus" "Christ"…etc. and promote its demonic idolatrous pagan customs and "holidays" by replacing YaHVeH's Sabbaths (Dan. 7:25).
Ephesians: 5:8: For you all were sometimes darkness, but now are you all LIGHT in the Rabbi: walk as children of LIGHT:
Have you ever considered why Shaul/Saul/Paul made this statement in his letter to the Ephesians? If your foundation is based on Ephesians 2:20 you will understand what Shaul was and is still saying. Where from scriptures did Shaul receive this idea that we are to be children of LIGHT? As I stated previously if our foundation is based on Ephesians 2:20:
Ephesians: 2:20: And are built on the foundation of the emissaries, nebiyiym/foretellers and Yahshua Messiah Himself being the chief corner stone;
Our foundation is not just built on the New Covenant Emissaries or just the four books of the Messianic Writings. We are also built on the nebiyiym. With this understanding we can begin to comprehend why Shaul had this concept of us being “children of LIGHT”. Turn to Yesha'Yah/Isaiah 8:20:
Yesha'Yah: 8:20: To the Torah/law and to the testimony/tehudah: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no LIGHT in them.
From e-Sword Scripture Program of Strong’s Concordance, the word for “light” in Iybriyiym/Hebrews is (edited):
From H7836; dawn (literally, figuratively or adverbially): - day (-spring), early, light, morning, where rises.
This is interesting. The nabiy (Eph. 2:20) Yesha'Yah referred to “…the Torah and to the tehudah…” as “LIGHT”! How can this be if Yahshua Himself said He is the LIGHT? Turn to Yahvhanan/Yahn/Yohn 8:12:
Yahvhanan: 8:12: Then spoke Yahshua again to them, saying, I am the LIGHT of the world: he that follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the LIGHT of life.
From e-Sword computer Scripture program, which uses Strong’s Concordance, the word in the Greek for “light” is (edited):
From an obsolete φάω phao¯ (to shine or make manifest, especially by rays; compare G5316 and G5346); luminousness (in the widest application, natural or artificial, abstract or concrete, literal or figurative): - fire, light.
Yahshua clearly says: “I am the LIGHT of the world”. How can this be? How can “the Torah and the tehudah” be LIGHT and Yahshua be “LIGHT”?
Do you believe what 2 Timothy 3:16 and 2 Kepha 1:21 says?
2 Timothy: 3:16: All scripture is given by motivation of YaHVeH, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2 Kepha 1:21: For the nebuah/foretelling came not in old time by the will of man: but kadosh men of YaHVeH spoke as they were moved by the Ruach ha`Kodesh .
If you believe this as I do then you can begin to recognize that Yahshua was making a point when He said He is “the LIGHT of the World”. He was pointing to scripture and what had already been said. The two cannot be separated. The LIGHT equals Yahshua. The LIGHT equals the Torah/Law and the tehudah/testimony. The one does not do away with the other.
The “Law”, which is called by the "Jews"/Yahudiym the “Torah”, which is the first five books of the Old Covenant called also the Pentateuch written by Mosheh/Moses. It is in these books YaHVeH hid the mystery of HIS Ben Yahshua (Romans 16:25). Men of old did not totally comprehend these “schoolmaster” that were pointing to and representing Yahshua (Galatians 3:24). Yahshua Himself makes mention that it is in the writings of Mosheh, the Nebiyiym and T`hiyliym/Psalms He is revealed:
Luke: 24:44: And He said to them, These are the words which I spoke to you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law/Torah of Mosheh, and in the nebiyiym, and in the t`hiyliym, concerning Me.
It is in the writings of Mosheh we find the Ten Commandments spoken directly from the Word of YaHVeH to the assembly of Yisrael. All the people heard the Word of YaHVeH’s voice. HE did not just speak to Mosheh. It was what was spoken by the voice of YaHVeH that was written on stone tablets and placed INSIDE the ark. It is called the eduth/testimony (Shemoth/Exodus 20; 25:16, 21-22; 26:33-34; 31:18; Dabariym/Deut. 4:9 – 13; 1 Melekiym/Kings 8:9). See article: 38) "Hear MY Voice"
Let me say it again. Yahshua = LIGHT = the Torah/Law and the eduth/testimony. These cannot be separated. Read Yahvhanan/Yahn 3:14 – 21. Verse 19 – 21 convey the point I want to focus in on:
Yahvhanan/Yahn: 3:19: And this is the judgment, that LIGHT is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than LIGHT, because their deeds were evil.
20. For every one that does evil hates the LIGHT, neither comes to the LIGHT, unless his deeds should be reproved.
21. But he that does truth comes to the LIGHT, that his deeds be made manifest, that they are wrought in Elohiym.
Remember Yahshua was talking to Nicodemus who was a Pharisee. If Nicodemus was well studied (Yahvhanan 3:10) in the scriptures he should have known that Yahshua was making reference to what the nabiy Yesha'Yah said in chapter eight verse twenty. Of course the scriptures were not marked chapter and verse in Nicodemus’ day, but he would have remembered it was in the book of Yesha'Yah. Notice verse 21: “he that does truth comes to the LIGHT”, it is through Yahshua (Dabariym 4:12; Yahn 1:1; 17:5) that YaHVeH spoke (Yahn 8:58) HIS Ruach Torah/Law (Romans 7:14) to the assembly of Yisrael at Mount Sinai. If we love truth we then will confess that Yahshua is the Ben of YaHVeH and that it is through Him that YaHVeH’s Law/Torah was given. This Law found in Shemoth/Exodus 20 exposes darkness. By accepting Yahshua as the Lamb slain from the foundation of world (Yahn 1:29; Revelation 13:8), the Mashiyach, the Ben of YaHVeH (Mattith`Yah/Matthew 16:16) and High Kohen (Iybriyiym/Heb. 7), we can then confess that we are sinners (Shemoth 20) and turn from our continual deliberate disobedience against YaHVeH (1 Yahn 1:9). We can then come to the point to be immersed under water (Acts 2:38) in the name of YaHVeH by the authority of Yahshua ha'Mashiyach and the Ruach ha'Kodesh so YaHVeH can give HIS Set Apart Ruach to us. This is how we are circumcised without hands (Colossians 2:11). See article:
11) What is the Circumcision without hands?
The emissary Shaul used this word “LIGHT” throughout his epistles to the Body of Yahshua. No one and I mean no one can ever say that Saul did not teach the “Ruach” Torah/Law (Shemoth 20; Romans 7:14)! Shaul taught the Ruach Torah because it was taught to him through Yahshua Mashiyach our Rabbi (Acts 9; Galatians 1:12). Here is another example of Shaul using this word:
Romans: 2:17: Observe, you are called a Yahudiy, and rest in the Torah/Law, and make your boast of YaHVeH,
Romans: 2:18: And know HIS will, and approve of the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the Torah;
Romans: 2:19: And are confident that you yourself are a guide of the blind, a LIGHT of them, which are in darkness,
Romans: 2:20: An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which have the form of knowledge and of the truth in the Torah.
Romans: 2:21: You therefore which teach another, teach you not yourself? You that preach a man should not steal, do you steal?
Romans: 2:22: You that says a man should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You that abhor idols, do you commit sacrilege?
Romans: 2:23: You that make your boast of the Torah, through breaking the Torah dis-respect your Elohiym?
The same Greek word used for “light” in Yahn 8:12 is the same word in Romans 2:19. I want you to notice what Law Shaul listed in verses 21 and 22. He quoted from that same Law that Yahshua quoted from in Mattith`Yah 19:16 –19; 22:35 – 40. It is that Law that was placed INSIDE the ark (1 Melekiym 8:9; Shemoth 20; 31:18).
Here is another verse Shaul uses the word “light”:
1 Corinthians: 4:5: Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Rabbi come, who both will bring to LIGHT the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of YaHVeH.
E-Sword Strong's Iybriy Concordance:
From G5457; to shed rays, that is, to shine or (transitively) to brighten up (literally or figuratively): - enlighten, illuminate, (bring to, give) light, make to see.
There is no getting around it! That Law that was placed INSIDE the ark has been written on our hearts if we believe in Yahshua Mashiyach. Anybody not living and teaching according to that Law through belief in Yahshua IS NOT IN THE LIGHT, NOR DOES THAT PERSON BELIEVE IN THE LIGHT!
Revelation/Raz Galah/Secrets Revealed: 12:17: And the dragon was angry with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of YaHVeH, and have the testimony of Yahshua Mashiyach.
Here again Shaul uses the word “light” in his letters to the family of YaHVeH:
2 Corinthians: 4:4: In whom the god/lord/adon of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not, unless the LIGHT of the respectful glad message of Mashiyach, who is the image of YaHVeH, should shine to them.
E-Sword Strong's Iybriy Concordance:
From G5461; illumination (figurative): - light.
2 Corinthians: 4:6: For YaHVeH, who commanded the LIGHT to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to give the LIGHT of the knowledge of the worship of YaHVeH in the face of Yahshua Mashiyach.
From e-Sword Strong's Iybriy and Greek Concordance the Greek word for “shined” is:
A primary verb; to beam, that is, radiate brilliancy (literally or figuratively): - give light, shine.
Those false ministers of light (2 Corinthians 11:14 -15; Yechizki'Yah/Ezekiel 7:26) today do not have a leg to stand on when they say that Yahshua has done away with the Torah/Law of YaHVeH. On the contrary, Yahshua has established that Torah/Law that was placed INSIDE the ark in our hearts (mind Iybriyiym/Hebrews 8:10; Romans 3:31; Yesha'Yah 8:16, 20).
2 Corinthians: 6:14: Be you all not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion has LIGHT with darkness?
Philippians: 2:15: That you all be blameless and harmless, the benniym of YaHVeH, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom you all shine as LIGHTS in the world;
From e-Sword Strong's Iybriy and Greek Concordance the Greek word for "LIGHTS"
From G5457; an illuminator, that is, (concretely) a luminary, or (abstractly) brilliancy: - light.
Colossians: 1:12: Giving thanks to the FATHER/ABBIY, which has made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the kadoshiym in LIGHT:
1 Thessalonian: 5:5: You all are all the children of LIGHT, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
1 Timothy: 6:16: Who only has immortality, dwelling in the LIGHT which no man can approach to; whom no man has seen, nor can see: to whom be esteem and power everlasting. Amein.
Read what Yahn says about “LIGHT”:
1 Yahvhanan/Yahn/Yohn: 1:5: This then is the message which we have heard from Him, and declare to you, that YaHVeH is LIGHT, and in HIM is no darkness at all.
1 Yahn: 1:7: But if we walk in the LIGHT, as HE is in the LIGHT, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Yahshua Mashiyach HIS Ben cleanses us from all sin.
1 Yahn: 2:8: Again, a new commandment I write to you, which thing is true in Him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true LIGHT now shines.
1 Yahn: 2:9: He that says he is in the LIGHT, and hates his brother, is in darkness even until now.
1 Yahn: 2:10: He that loves his brother abides in the LIGHT, and there is no occasion of stumbling in him.
Don’t let any man or woman deceive you, that Law found in Shemoth/Exodus 20 has been established on our hearts if we believe in Yahshua Mashiyach (Revelation 11:19; 12:17; 14:12).
