YAHWEH's Sword

A Refuge For The Wayfaring

They that are lead by the Ruach are the Sons of YAHWEH

Brother Alan's Question ROMIYAH - ROMANS 11:22

 Shaul Addresses His Letter To
 ROMIYAH - ROMANS 1:7 To all that be in Rome, beloved of YHWH, called to be Yisraelite kidushim: Unmerited love and favor to you and shalom from YHWH our ABBA, and YAHSHUA ha MessiYah.
 ROMIYAH - ROMANS 1:8 First, I thank my ABBA YHWH through YAHSHUA ha MessiYah for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world
 YHWH's Visible Covenant Again
 ROMIYAH - ROMANS 11:22 Behold therefore the tov and severity {peh'-rek' harshness, severity, cruelty} of YHWH: on them which fell, severity; but toward you, tov, if you continue in HIS tov: otherwise you also shall be cut off
 ROMIYAH - ROMANS 11:23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for YHWH is able to graft them in again.
 * All are Yisrael. Whether you abide with and as Yisrael depends on your faith in Moshiach, and your lifestyle to walk as He walked, and not as pagans walk
 ROMIYAH - ROMANS 11:24 For if you wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into a tov olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
 ROMIYAH - ROMANS 11:25 For I would not, Yisraelite brothers, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Yisrael, until the fullness of the Gentiles {go'-ee} be come in
 {go'-ee} nation, people, usually of non-Hebrew people, descendants of Avraham
 Warnings Against Disobedience, And Promises Of Mercy To A Remnant
 DEBARIM - DEUTERONOMY 4:27 And YHWH shall scatter {poots} you among the
 nations {am}
, and you shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither YHWH shall lead you
 {am} persons, members of one's people, compatriots, fellow-countrymen
  Few in recognizable numbers, not actual numbers since they will look and behave like gentiles
 DEBARIM - DEUTERONOMY 28:62 And you shall be left few {meh-at'} in number, whereas you were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because you would not obey the voice of YHWH your ABBA
 {meh-at'} like a little, within a little, almost, just, hardly, shortly, little worth

 Few in recognizable, or identifiable numbers, not in actual numbers, since most Yisraelites live and act like gentiles thus are not distinguishable from them, unless a reawakening and regeneration occurs by faith in YHWHSHUA

 YHWH Renews The Covenant With Avram
 BERESHITH - GENESIS 17:1 And when Avram "exalted father" was ninety years old and nine, YHWH appeared to Avram, and said to him, I am the Shadday {shad-dah'-ee'  the Almighty,  most powerful}; walk before ME, and be perfect {taw-meem' complete, whole, entire, sound}
 BERESHITH - GENESIS 17:2 And I will make MY covenant {ber-eeth'  alliance, pledge, treaty} between ME and you, and will multiply you exceedingly {meh-ode' muchness, force, abundance, might}
 BERESHITH - GENESIS 17:3 And Avram fell on his face: and YHWH talked with HIM, saying,
 BERESHITH - GENESIS 17:4 As for ME, behold, MY {ber-eeth'} is with you, and you shall be an ahvot of many {haw-mone' great number, abundance} nations {go'-ee}
 * These many nations would come to pass through Isaac and Jacob as we are later told, not Ishmael the father of one large nation

 BERESHITH - GENESIS 17:5 Neither shall your name anymore be called Avram, but your name shall be Avraham "father of a multitude" or "chief of multitude"; for an ahvot of many {haw-mone' great number, abundance} nations {go'-ee} have I made {naw-than' bestow, grant, permit, ascribe} you
 *friend of YHWH and founder of Hebrew nation via YHWH's elective covenant
 BERESHITH - GENESIS 17:6 And I will make you exceeding {meh-ode' intensive}
 fruitful {paw-raw'  to bear fruit, be fruitful, branch off, increase}
, and I will make nations  {go'-ee} of you, and kings {meh'-lek} shall come out of you.

 Avraham And His Family Are Circumcised
 BERESHITH - GENESIS 17:17 Then Avraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his lev, Shall a child be born to him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?
 BERESHITH - GENESIS 17:18 And Avraham said to YHWH, O that Ishmael might live before YOU
 BERESHITH - GENESIS 17:19 And YHWH said, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son indeed; and you shall call his name Yitschaq (Isaac) "he laughs": and I will establish {koom' stand, rise up, to be fulfilled} MY  {ber-eeth'} with him for an everlasting {ber-eeth'}, and with his seed after him
 * The promised seed of physical multiplicity goes through Yitschaq not through Ishmael
BERESHITH - GENESIS 17:20 And as for Ishmael {yish-maw-ale' "YHWH will hear"}, I have heard you: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he bring forth, and I will make him a great nation
 * Notice one nation not many nations
 BERESHITH - GENESIS 17:21 But MY {ber-eeth'} will I establish with Yitschaq, which Sarah shall bear unto you at this set time in the next year
 * A covenant is more detailed and extensive than the mere blessing that Ishmael experienced
 BERESHITH - GENESIS 17:22 And he left off talking with him, and YHWH went up from Avraham.
 BERESHITH - GENESIS 17:23 And Avraham took Ishmael his son, and all that were born in his house, and all that were bought with his money, every male among the men of Avraham's house; and circumcised  {mool}  the flesh of their foreskin in the selfsame day, as YHWH had said to him.
 The Character And Coming Of MessiYah
 YESHAYAH - ISAIAH 42:1 Behold MY servant {eh'-bed' YHWHSHUA}, whom I uphold; MY elect {baw-kheer'}, in whom MY soul {neh'-fesh'  appetite, mind} delights {raw-tsaw'}; I have put MY Ruach upon Him: he shall bring forth  mishpat to the Gentiles {go'-ee}
 * The scattered seed of Yisrael
 He Heals The Daughter Of A Syrophenician Woman
 MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 15:21 Then YAHSHUA from there, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Tsidon
 MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 15:22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried to Him, saying, Have mercy on me, O YAHSHUA, you Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
 MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 15:23 But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and besought Him, saying, Send her away; for she cries after us
 MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 15:24 But He answered and said, I am not sent but to the lost sheep of the  Beit  of Yisrael
 * This incident is interesting in that the disciples wanted to send her away seeing that in the natural she was a Canaanite woman. Yet Yahshua apparently knew she had Yisraelite heritage due to His response that indicated that He would not abandon her, since He had come for the lost sheep of Yisrael, which apparently He knew her to be
 MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 15:25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, YAHSHUA, help me
 MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 15:26 But He answered and said, It is not tov to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs {keh'-leb' contempt or abasement, prostitute}
 MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 15:27 And she said, Truth, YAHSHUA: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.
 MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 15:28 Then YAHSHUA answered and said to her, O woman, great is your faith: be it to you even as you will. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.
 The Apostles Instructed And Sent Forth
 MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 10:5 These twelve YAHSHUA sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter you not:
 MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 10:6 But go rather to the lost  'abedah {ab-ay-daw'} sheep of the house of Yisrael

 The Son of Man: The Antecedent of Time: HIS judgment
 HANOCH - ENOCH 48:1 Furthermore, in that place I saw the fountain of righteousness, which does not become depleted and is surrounded completely by numerous fountains of wisdom.
 48:2All the thirsty ones drink of the water and become filled with wisdom. Then their dwelling places become with the kodesh, righteous, and elect ones.
 48:3At that hour, that Son of Man was given a name, in the presence of YHWH of Hosts, the Before Time; even before the creation of the sun and the moon, before the creation of the stars, He was given a name in the presence of YHWH of Hosts.
 48:4He will become a staff for the righteous ones in order that they may lean on Him and not fall. He is the Light of the gentiles and He will become the hope of those who are sick in their hearts.
 48:5All those who dwell upon the earth shall fall and worship before Him; they shall magnify, bless, and sing the NAME of YHWH of Hosts
 48:6For this purpose He became the Chosen One; He was concealed in the presence of YHWH of Hosts prior to the creation of the world, and for eternity.
 48:7And He has revealed the wisdom of YHWH of Hosts to the righteous and the kodesh ones, for He has preserved the portion of the righteous because they have hated and despised this world of oppression together with all its ways of life and its habits in the NAME of YHWH of Hosts; and because they will be saved in His Name and it is His good pleasure that they have life.
