Updated 03/08/6992 [5770] 1st day of the week (05/23/10)

What is the schoolmaster (Galatians 3:24) of Numbers (B’midvar) 14:40 – 45? How does this event lead to Yahshua the Messiah and reveal the deceptive (Revelation 12:9) events that are now taking place in the Promised Land?

Numbers chapter 14 we read about the evil report that ten of the twelve spies brought back about the Promised Land. Because of this evil report, which revealed the children of Yisrael’s lack of belief (They don’t believe in Yahshua Messiah and His second coming), Yahveh punished them to wander in the wilderness for forty years. How does this event relate to what is happening today?

It’s very clear in my mind because the House of Yahudah (Judah) today doesn’t believe in Yahshua the Messiah (His first and let alone His second coming) they have entered the land without Mosheh (Moses represented the Word see Yohn 1:1/Deuteronomy 18:18) and the ark of the covenant of YaHVeH:

Numbers (B’midvar) 14:44:  But they presumed to go up to the hilltop: nevertheless the ark of the covenant of YaHVeH, and Mosheh, departed not out of the camp.

I think we need to seriously look at and consider what Revelation 11:19 says:

Revelation: 11:19: And the Heykal of YaHVeH was opened in shameh, and there was seen in HIS Heykal the ark of HIS covenant: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

Now, the question we need to ask as the body of Yahshua is: Is this ark in the Shamayim Heykal the ark that the Word of YaHVeH had Mosheh make (Exodus/Shemot 25:10 – 22)? Or is this the original ark that has always been in shameh that we really know nothing about? It makes more sense to me that the ark we see in Revelation 11:19 is speaking about the ark that the Word of YaHVeH had Mosheh make. The reason I believe this is because Shaul (Saul/Paul) said:

Galatians: 3:24: That's why the law (torah/instruction) was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Messiah, that we might be justified by belief.

So when we look at the events that took place in the Old Testament (Tanakh) we MUST always look at them in the LIGHT (Yohn 8:12) and how they point to Yahshua our Rabbi.

This now leads to this question: is the ark that the Word of YaHVeH had Mosheh make still on the earth? Or is the ark in shameh now? It seems clear to me unless somebody can show me otherwise, that the ark that the Word of YaHVeH had Mosheh make is in shameh (Rev. 11:19), and it was taken to shameh when Yahshua the Mashiyach ascended to YaHVeH's Throne.

Acts: 1:11: Which also said, all you men of Galilee, why stand you gazing up into shameh? This same Yahshua, which is taken up from you into shameh, shall so come in like manner as you all have seen Him go into shameh.

This verse says nothing about the ark being taken up to shameh with Yahshua, but because of my belief in Him, it can only lead me to believe that He had the ark with Him when He ascended into shameh:

Hebrews: 11:1: Now belief is the substance of things expected for, the evidence of things not seen.

The implication of this understanding is that the unbelieving House of Yahudah ("Jews" who now occupy the Promised Land in governmental and religious authority (Yohn 3:18), and the unbelieving House of Yisrael (UK & USA are the shepherd tribes steeped in Baal Christian sun god worship, who are very active in this worlds government system Matthew/Matit’Yah – ha’Levi 4:8 – 10; 7:21 – 23; 24:5; Revelation 13:11) are going to build the 3rd and final temple built with mans hands (Hosea/Hoshea 8:14), and set up all the temple services WITHOUT Yahshua the Messiah and the ark of the covenant of YaHVeH (Numbers 14:44). In other words YaHVeH is not with them (Numbers 14:43). Yes, all these things YaHVeH is allowing so that HIS future foretelling of HIS Word can be fulfilled (Matthew 26:54). If they do have some type of ark I don’t believe it will be the one that the Word of YaHVeH had Mosheh built. Read articles:





I believe “many” (Matthew 24:5) are being deceived by these events that are now taking place in the Promised Land. The delusion will only grow stronger as times goes on (Revelation 13: 13-14; 2 Thessalonians 2:11).

Notice that the children of Yisrael had to wander in the wilderness for forty years because they believed the evil report of the ten spies. That time now reverts to a literal forty days (Matthew 24:22; Ezekiel 4) as we draw closer to the seventy years that the House of Yahudah has been a nation (Jeremiah/YirmiYah 25:12; Daniel 9:2). They became a sovereign nation on the 2nd month [Iyyar] 5th day of the month they will be a nation now for 62 years (5770 I count as 6992/2010). They became a nation on the Babylonian calendar on May 14th, 1948. At that time it fell on the 2nd month, which the Yudiy call Iyyar, on the 5th day the year they number as 5708.  The count should always start at the beginning of the year, which YaHVeH has established from the beginning of creation and revealed to the children of Yisrael at the time HE freed them from Egyptian/Mitsrayiy bondage (Exodus/Shemot 12).






Certain issues keep popping up in my head that cause concern. When these questions come into my mind red flags pop up, bells and whistles go off in my brain so to speak. These questions come up because of what Yahshua said in Matthew 23 and Luke 20. Yahshua clearly said NOT for us believers to call each other rabbi (Matthew 23:8) or father (Matthew 23:9). I understand this to be in a religious context. I don’t believe when Yahshua said not to call any man on earth your father he was speaking about our biological father (Luke 11:11). I believe He was speaking in a religious situation. The reason I believe this is because of the circumstance of Matthew 23 and Luke 20:46. Yahshua at that time was talking to the RELIGIOUS leaders. We must also look at these things that Yahshua spoke in the LIGHT (Yohn 8:12; Galatians 3:24) of what has now been accomplished (Yohn 19:30). Yahshua has already come in the flesh (I John 4:2), died, has been raised from the dead (I Corinthians 6:4), received His incorruptible body (1 Peter/Kefa 1:23; I Yohn 3:2) and has ascended to YaHVeH’s right hand (Matthew 26:64). We are no longer under the authority of the Levitical high kohen hood (Hebrews 7), or under any other authority (religiously speaking) but the authority that has been set up in and through the body of Yahshua. The reason I emphasize this point is because of what Yahshua said in Matthew 23:3:


The question is if there were so many Yahudiym believers in Yahushalam at the temple, why did they not come to Shaul’s defence and speak up for him? The unbelieving Yudiy leaders in Yahushalam knew Shaul before he was “chosen” by Yahshua (Acts 9:15). Shaul had a reputation of persecuting the body of Yahshua (Acts 7:58; 8:1 –3). Something was going on in Yahushalam that we don’t clearly see. If you take into account Acts 15 and Galatians, especially when Shaul had to rebuke Kefa, because Kefa was afraid of the unbelieving (of the circumcision) Yudiym (Galatians 2:12-12).

I bring this all up because of the spirit (attitude) I have been sensing in the Messianic Jewish groups and sacred name groups. It seems most do not accept Shaul (Saul/Paul) as a “chosen” Messenger (Acts 9:15), which clearly contradicts the witness we have in Acts chapter 9. I am beginning to believe that these groups have allowed unbelieving Yudiym (“Jews” II Yohn 1) to mix with them. I know this to be a fact in the “Messianic Jewish groups” because I was a member of three Messianic groups on MSN and know they allow them to come in and post their unbelief in Yahshua. I also know that these Messianic groups call their teachers rabbi, which contradicts what Yahshua said:

Matthew: 23:8: But be not you all called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Messiah; and all you are brethren.

I have yet to hear a clear explanation as to why these Messianic groups continue to give their teachers this title.

I do believe when Yahshua said what He said in Matthew 23 and in Luke 20:46 He was not only pointing to the religious deception in His day, He was also pointing to the religious deception in our day. It is clear that the Catholic Church call their priest “father” and even the title “pope” (“papa”) the leader of the Catholic Church holds means “father”:

Matthew: 23:9: And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your FATHER, which is in shameh.

From E-Sword Strong’s Concordance the Greek word “father” is:





Apparently a primary word; a “father” (literally or figuratively, near or more remote): - father, parent.

I have heard some in the Catholic Church use the scriptures and say that Shaul told those in the body of Yahshua to call him father. This is a total distortion and twisting of the context of what Shaul meant. Shaul was primarily speaking to the younger converts and he being an older man was looking at them in the sense of being children. Shaul never intended for them to call him father, Shaul knew what Yahshua had already taught concerning this issue (Galatians 1:12). I believe I Timothy 5:1 is one of the verses they use to justify their disobedience on this issue:

1Timothy: 5:1: Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren;

Shaul in no way was suggesting to Timothy to call the elder men of the body of Yahshua father. Shaul was trying to set up a difference in Timothy’s and those younger on how to look at the elderly in the body in a respectful manner, as they would respect there own biological or  in some cases adoptive fathers . Shaul knew what the scriptures said about the hoary head:

Leviticus (V’yakra): 19:32: You shall rise up before the hoary head, and respect the face of the old man, and fear thy Elohiym: I am YaHVeH.

What about Luke 20:46? The verse reads:

Luke: 20:46: Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;

Lu: 20:47: Which devour widows' houses, and for a show make long prayers: the same shall receive greater judgment.

Yahshua in this verse didn’t say a person could not ware a long robe, but He did say, “beware” of them.

From E-Sword Strong’s Concordance  the word for “beware” in the Greek is:





From G4314 and G2192; (figuratively) to hold the mind (G3563 implied) towards, that is, pay attention to, be cautious about, apply oneself to, adhere to: - (give) attend (-ance, -ance at, -ance to, unto), beware, be given to, give (take) heed (to, unto) have regard.

Again I believe this warning is primarily for our day. In the western world you very seldom see any man wearing street clothes of "long robes." In Yahshua’s day it would not have been unusual because that was the style of the day. Today those that wear such attire in the western culture are usually religious leaders. Here are some pictures to give you a general idea:

My point in this article is to reveal the time that we are in. We have this world’s religious leaders entering the Promised Land and neither Yahshua nor the ark of the covenant of YaHVeH is with them (Numbers 14:44).
