This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that I, Ya'hoveh Elohim made the heavens and the earth (Gen. 2:4). In its beginning the earth was without form, and void. There was nothing there; only spiritual darkness pervaded the face of the deep. And My Spirit was hovering, (or brooding) over the face of the (spiritual) water.

For by Me, Yah'shua Elohim, all things were created that are in the heavens and on the earth, visible and invisible. All things were created through Me and for Me, as it was the Father's (Ya'hoveh Elohim) good pleasure that all the fullness or completeness be summed up through Me. For I was before all things, and in Me all things consist (Col.1:16-17). I was with My Father from the beginning, for the Father and I are one in the Elohim, and I was made manifest in order that the invisible Elohim might be seen. I proceeded out of the mouth of the Elohim, as the Word for I was the Word and the Word was Elohim (John 1:1-3).

The first manifestation of My reality came when Elohim spoke, "Let there be Light" (Gen. 1:3). This was not physical light from nature's sun, for it had not yet been created. This was the Light of Life, a spiritual Light that would become the light of men (John 1:4). For in Me is the fountain of life. In My light you will see light (Psalms 36:9). "I am the Light of the world. He who comes to Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the Light of life" (John 8:12). This Light is the glory of My nature, which is love, for if you have love for your brother you are truly abiding in My light (1 John 2:10). Thus you see that from the beginning the Father and I are one, for in Light you see Light, and this Light is one.

This is why when it was said about this Light "it was good", in it was seen the nature of the Father, Ya'hoveh, for His very nature is love and it is good (1 John 4:7, Mark 10:18). For I have come from My Father to be revealed in that, which has been created, especially in the crown of creation - man. This being so, that you may be able to comprehend with all the true believers what is the width and length and depth and height of the Father's nature; so that you may know the love of Messiah which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of Elohim (Eph. 3:18-19).

Now, according to this divine design, I drew a circular horizon on the face of the varying densities of the spiritual waters, and divided the water of Light and Life from the water of Darkness (or absence of life). I called this mid-heaven the firmament, as it became the boundary of these waters (Job 26:10). The realm of Light, above the firmament, I called "good" and the eternal Day, for there is no Night or darkness in it. But the realm of spiritual darkness, which was under the firmament, I called Night. However, it was not eternal, but was subject to the passing of time, and would ultimately be absorbed into the realm of Light and disappear.

I separated the Light from darkness, as I needed the medium of darkness to reveal the true nature of Light. You have this very witness all around you at all times. For if you shut out all natural light you cannot see anything, only blackness, but when you kindle light you see its reflected hues. As the light increases in intensity, moving from glory to glory, its nature becomes clearer and more defined, until there is only light. This is why I have told you to walk in the Light, even as I am in the Light (1 John 1:7), that you may also appear, or be unveiled with me in the glory of My light (Col.3:4). So you see, right from the beginning I set in order the process of revelation; each day of creation reveals more of My eternally divine nature! Indeed, Paul the apostle wrote of My invisible nature, which is clearly seen and understood by the things that are made. My eternal power is in and through the Elohim (Rom 1:19-20).

On each successive day of creation, "there was an evening and a morning." Evening (erev) and morning (boker) do not necessarily mean two twelve hour periods, ages or epochs, but are a condition of the mixing of light and darkness. This is something which humanity has been awed by from the beginning. Even to this very day, people will travel thousands of miles or climb mountains and traverse the deserts, just to get a glimpse of the beauty of a sunrise or a sunset. The word "erev" portrays a beautiful blend of interesting words, such as: mixture, interwoven, take a pledge, exchange, have fellowship, sweet, pleasant, arid, desert, a plateau, steppe, sunset, and westward. Each "Day" of the creation process was, therefore, a sequence of revelations of the Elohim. The beginning of each unveiling (erev) was like the blending, or mixing of the hues and colors of the sunset. However, each successive dawn revealed more glory, power and magnificence, until the final image and revelation-glory of the Elohim would be seen in the crown of His creation - Adam - man.

The meanings of the word for morning, "boker", like "erev", can speak of conditions or interactions between light and darkness, for example: split, penetrate, rip, divide, reflect, inquire, seek, visit, consider. "Boker" brings with it the joy of the end of the darkness, and the full expression of the light. The beauty of the relationships found in the Elohim is now unveiled, ripped, split, and penetrated into, displaying its exact hue of glory, which is to be reflected in that which has been created through the "Word".

The appearing of the Morning Star is the first sign of the coming Day; it precedes the dawn and heralds the light of morning. Yah'shua came to this earth as the bright Morning Star (see 2 Pet.1:19; Rev. 22:16), Who would arise in the hearts of men through faith in the redemptive work of His sacrifice. But after He was taken to glory, He became the light and glory of the New Creation Day. You, who have received His Spirit, now have this Light and Life in you. The first rays of His dawning are beginning to penetrate, split, rip open the veils of darkness that gripped your earth during the night. There is a smooth transition of the dawning, as every successive ray of glory brings with it clarity, certainty, finality of the finished or full revelation of the Elohim, until the light becomes constant, no longer mixed or changing. But rather stabilizing, into that exact reflection of the divine nature, where there are "no shifting shadows" (James 1:17).


"Your mercy, O Yahoveh extends to the heavens (height); Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds (breadth). Your righteousness is like the great mountains (length); Your judgments are a great deep (depth) (Ps. 36:5-6).

July 9, 1999

There are many aspects, or facets, in our day and age to the "restoration of all things that have been spoken by the mouths of the prophets of old" (Acts 3:21). In these letters I have been mainly concentrating on the restoration of the Kingdom of God to Israel. But as in any restoration, much has to be torn down and a great deal of debris and useless material, which has been brought in over the years, has to be removed. It also appears that restoration many times spurs the enemy, who sets out to oppose the work and the workers in every possible way.

In YHVH's government there is an executive order, a judicial order and a legislative order. However, unlike earthly governments, in this one all the bills have already been passed, all the laws have been signed by the executive's signature, and were written down in a Book that we call the "set apart (holy) Scriptures". This document is complete, requiring nothing to be added to it, or removed from it. There is only one major work that remains to be accomplished, and that is discipling the subjects of the Kingdom in the Divine instructions and encouraging them to live by them. If adhered to obediently, these instructions will bring life and blessings to these subjects and to the entire planet. Ignorance, blindness and disobedience, however, will have the opposite effect.

Let us wake up, therefore, and check around the camp we are in, "lifting up our eyes": Is the glory cloud (the pillar by day and the fire by night) still in our midst, or has it moved on? Such an examination is necessary because if the rest of the tribes are moving on and following the cloud, it will not be long before the sands of the desert will cover the path of their footprints. Time is not on our side, but grace is, as long as we don't insult the grace of YHVH. How much worse of a punishment, do you suppose, will be meted to him who tramples underfoot the Son of God and who counts the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insults the Spirit of grace? (ref. Heb. 10:29). The Spirit of grace does not bring us into a lawless, Torah-less kingdom living. On the contrary, it is this very Spirit that inscribes the Torah on our hearts.

Today's restoration is much like the restoration in the days of Ezra, when a remnant returned to the land after the Babylonian captivity. Ezra records the following word: "And now for a little while grace has been shown from YHVH our Mighty One, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a stake in His holy place, that our Mighty One may enlighten our eyes and give us a measure of revival in our bondage" (Ezra 9:8).

The fact is that we are no longer of the kingdom of darkness, the kingdom of lawlessness, but we have been transferred to the Kingdom of YHVH's Beloved Son Yeshua. Why is it essential that we become aware of this reality? Is it because we need to be able to discern the difference between the profane and the holy, wickedness and Godliness, truth and lie? With the knowledge of YHVH's Divine legal system, of His judicial system and living in obedience to His every word, we will experience what liberty really means. In the kingdoms of this world life is lived UNDER civil and religious laws, laws that are added to day by day, until that day comes in which no buying or selling will be possible for those living in YHVH's kingdom, according to His Divine law. That separation is happening even now by the hour, and is hastening towards the day of YHVH's judgements. We, who are already living in His Kingdom are governed by a Divine and Supreme Law, by never changing laws. Study to show yourselves approved! Learn the laws that are governing His kingdom! These Divine laws are inherent in the nature of the new creation life. Thus, to know Him, Yeshua the Messiah, is to know the Law of Liberty.

In last week's letter we began to take a look at the laws of redemption. Redemption is a very important aspect of the restoration, because without it restoration would not be possible.

The scroll in YHVH's hand (Rev.5:1) is a legal document, which was already written before the foundations of the world. It is a document specifying the requirements incumbent upon a redeemer. It is for this reason that Peter, when speaking about our redemption, exhorts us to conduct ourselves throughout the time of our stay (on earth) in fear; cognizant of the fact that we were not redeemed with corruptible things, silver or gold, or by our own aimless conduct, through performing the traditions of men, or that of our fathers' traditions. But, rather, that we were redeemed with the precious blood of Messiah, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for us (ref. 1 Pet.1:17-20).

Yeshua faced these legal requirements head on. He knew that He was a lamb for the sacrifice, who was to be without blemish and without spot, and that He had to be obedient in all things pertaining to His Father's will, in order to qualify to be that sacrifice. In Revelation 5 we see John falling on his knees and weeping bitterly, because in that moment he understood what was required for the redemption of the inheritance. Even king David wrote: "None can by any means redeem a brother, nor give to God a ransom for him, for the redemption of their souls is costly" (Ps. 49:7-8). How costly? Look at the scroll: the shedding of the blood (life) of a firstborn son (the shedding of blood was not just a few drops trickling down the face, it was the complete draining or separating of the blood from the body); and a sacrifice that is without spot or blemish. In other words, it must be a sacrifice that is not defiled by sin. Yeshua, therefore, had to meet and fulfill every requirement of the Supreme Law, both in heart and deed.

Yeshua was not ignorant of the Torah, He knew what was written there. That scroll was not called the "Lamb's scroll" (or "Book of Life") for nothing! Since our names are inscribed on that scroll, we also need to know what is written in that legal document. There are requirements written there for us as well, but if we do not know or understand the reason for those instructions we may find ourselves falling short of the calling that is upon our lives because of ignorance. We are His inheritance, bought with a price. YHVH says that the nations are our inheritance. What do you think it will cost us to redeem our inheritance, "the nations"? This is why Peter writes: "Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest, hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Yahoshua the Messiah; as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, 'be holy, for I am holy'"(1 Pet 1:13-16). "For to this [suffering] you were called, because Messiah also suffered for us, leaving us an example that you should follow His steps: who committed no sin, nor was deceit found in His mouth; who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously" (1 Pet. 2:21-23). Remember there is still a creation that is groaning, waiting for the appearance of the sons of Elohim! (ref. Rom. 8:19).


"Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell (shevet achim) together in unity…for in this YHVH commands the blessing "life eternal" (Ps.133).
