Definitions with eternal consequences.
God: Yehovah’s name means He saves and gives the one he chooses to His son:
God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through? Numbers 23:19 The Messiah, Yeshua: His name means Salvation, He is the only way to the Father. whoever says he abides in Him ought to walk in the same way in which He walked. Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Yeshua did.
He kept the food laws, the Sabbath, God's feast days and all God's commandments and statutes
1 John 2:6
anti-Semitic: Hostile to or prejudiced against Jews. Yeshua is a Jew. So, when you say that's Jewish, or that it's only for the Jews, you being anti-Semitic to the same race Yeshua is. Calling someone a Jew is the same thing. And he has given us this command: Those who love God must also love their fellow believers. 1 John 4:21
idolater: a person that admires intensely and often blindly one that is not usually a subject of worship. Idolatry is the worship of an idol or cult image, being a physical image, such as a statue. The violence against idolaters and idolatry of Traditional Religion practices of Africa started in the medieval era and continued into the modern era.
Born again: Yeshua answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. “John 3:3 Those who have been born into God’s family do not make a practice of sinning, because God’s life is in them. So, they can’t keep on sinning, because they are children of God. 1John 3
Baptize: Acts 2:38 says, “Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Yeshua Messiah for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” This scripture encourages us that when we are baptized, we are given the gift of the Holy Spirit and he becomes part of us.
Carnal mind For the mindset on the flesh is death, but the mindset on the Spirit is life and peace because the mindset on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, Romans 8:6-7 Romans 1:28And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, Romans 8:7because the mindset on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, Ephesians 4:17 So this I say, and affirm together with the Lord, that you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind, Colossians 1:21 And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, Colossians 2:18 Let no one keep defrauding you of your prize by delighting in self-abasement and the worship of the angels, taking his stand on visions he has seen, inflated without cause by his fleshly mind, Titus 1:15 To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their mind and their conscience are defiled.
Children of the devil: But when people keep on sinning, it shows that they belong to the devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. So now we can tell who children of God are and who are the children of the devil. Anyone who does not live righteously and does not love other believers does not belong to God 1 John 3:10
Christian: And we can be sure that we know him if we obey his commandments. 4If someone claims, “I know God,” but doesn’t obey God’s commandments, that person is a liar and is not living in the truth. 5 But those who obey God’s words truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. 6Those who say, they live in God should live their lives as Yeshua did. 1 John 2:3He kept the Leviticus food laws, The Saturday Sabbath, God’s feast days and all the commandments. Why don't we keep then?
The covenant: that God gave at Mount Sinai reinforced the covenant that God had given to Abraham and told Israel what they would have to do as their side of the covenant. God again promised to stay with the Jews and never to abandon them, because they were his chosen people. The people broke the covenant by building a golden calf to worship God.
Duty: Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. Ecclesiastes 12: 13
Endure until the end: But the one who endures to the end will be saved. Matthew 24:13
False prophets A false prophet, by biblical definition, leads people away from the commandments of the God of Israel. That would mean that a true prophet, by biblical definition, affirms the commandments of the God of Israel. So, when it comes to determining whether someone is a true prophet, a question we should ask is this: Does their message affirm God’s commandments or negate them?
Faith "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" Hebrews
Faith is the connecting power into the spiritual realm, which links us with God and makes Him become a tangible reality to the sense perceptions of a person. Faith is the basic ingredient to begin a relationship with God.
The first day of the week the apostles came together on the first day of the week, thus implying to many that the Sabbath is now on the first day of the week. Since this verse is used to defend Sunday as the new Sabbath day, let’s look at the Greek verse, where verse 7 says “the first day of the week”. The Greek says, actually... Mia ton sabaton The Greek word mia means “one,” not “first” ... it is the Greek word ‘Protos’ which means “first,” which is not present in the text .. we cannot make it say something that it does not ... It actually translates as “one of the Sabbaths”, plural, Not “First day of the week”. Singular.”. This is a huge translation error that has been openly accepted as truth over the years. The modern church recognizes the resurrection day of Yeshua as being on Sunday. Let's see which day Yeshua was resurrected. See charts in the back of the book.
Foolish: The foolish are those who are disobedient. Fools hate instruction; (Torah meaning ‘instruction,’ as it relates to the Word of God).
Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD (YHWH) is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Proverbs 10:8 The wise of heart will receive commandments, but a babbling fool will come to ruin.
Matthew 7:26 And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.
Gather together/ Rapture: See Yeshua speaks about the future. Matthew 24.2, Thessalonians 2:1,1 Corinthians 15:51-58
Grace The word 'grace' literally means 'favor' In Hebrew it is CHEN from a root word CHANAN - to bend or stoop in kindness to another as a superior to an inferior.
Grave "the Old Testament term Sheol is translated as "Hell" Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice John 5:28
Gospel: But he replied, “I must preach the Good News of the Kingdom of God in other towns, too, because that is why I was sent.” Luke 4:43
Grafted into Israel: 11 Don’t forget that you Gentiles used to be outsiders. You were called
“uncircumcised heathens” by the Jews, who were proud of their circumcision, even though it affected only their bodies and not their hearts. In those days you were living apart from Christ. You were excluded from citizenship among the people of Israel, and you did not know the covenant promises God had made to them. You lived in this world without God and without hope. But now you have been united with Christ Yeshua. Once you were far away from God, but now you have been brought near to him through the blood of Christ. So now you Gentiles are no longer strangers and foreigners. You are citizens along with all of God’s holy people. You are members of God’s family. Ephesians 2
Hebrew: The word “Hebrew” in the Hebrew language is עברי (Ivrie). The root letters are used to mean cross over or pass through.
Jew: The word "Jew" is a shortened form of the old English word "Judean," referring to the descendants of the patriarch Judah, one of the twelve progenitors of the tribes of Israel. New Testament genealogies, both Yeshua' mother Mary and His stepfather Joseph are listed as descendants of Judah, through the line of David. No, a man is a Jew because he is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code. Such a man’s praise does not come from men, but from God, Romans 2:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Yeshua. Galatians 3:28 And so all Israel will be saved. As the Scriptures say, “The one who rescues will come from Jerusalem, and he will turn Israel away from ungodliness.
Judgment: And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment, Hebrews 9:27
The judgment seat of Christ For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.2 Corinthians 5:10
Justified: For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. Romans 213
Lamp: This is the commandment. Proverbs 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching a light, and the reproofs of discipline are the way of life, LIGHT: THE LIGHT IS THE LAW, THE TORAH. Proverbs 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching a light, and the reproofs of discipline are the way of life,
613 Laws: in the Bible, some of them are for men, some of them are for women, some of them are for children, some of them are for Priests, and some of them are for the Temple. Indeed, these commands that I'm giving you today are neither confusing nor unattainable for you. Deuteronomy 30:11
This is The Book of God's Law. Keep it beside the sacred chest that holds the agreement the
LORD your God made with Israel. This book is proof that you know what the LORD wants you to do. Deuteronomy 31:36. You must obey God's commands better than the Pharisees and the teachers of the Law obey them.
If you don't, I promise you will never get into the kingdom of God. Matthew 5: 20, Matthew 5:17-49, Jeremiah 31:33
Oil: Is the desire for obedience. Before reading this commandment, remember, the lamp is “the commandment” and the light is “the law.”
Leviticus 24:2 “Command the people of Israel to bring you pure oil from beaten olives for the lamp, that a light may be kept burning regularly
Paul: When quoting, Paul said this, or Paul said that, keep in mind who is he talking to and about what, who is he talking about. When he is talking about the law it is either the oral law of the Pharisees or the curse of the law of sin and death or the handwritten ordinances held against us. There are 46 scriptures stating he kept all God's laws and statutes. Be warned there are eternal consequences in what you believe and live out. You and your family have been deceived. Paul said: Imitate me as imitate Christ, see pages 69-72 in the book beyond a reasonable doubt. Prayer If anyone turns a deaf ear to my instruction, even their prayers are detestable. God cannot stand the prayers of anyone who disobeys his Law. Proverbs 28:9
Peter’s Vision: He saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners. 12 It contained all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles and birds. 13 Then a voice told him, “Get up, Peter. Kill and eat.” “Surely not, Lord!” Peter replied. “I have never eaten anything impure or unclean. The voice spoke to him a second time, “Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.16 This happened three times, and immediately the sheet was taken back to heaven. (For hundreds of years Christians have interpreted Peter's vision as God's permission to kill and eat any animal, which it is not. It is a vision to let Peter know that he and other Jewish-Christians were permitted to enter the homes of the Gentiles to bring them the Good News of Yeshua messiah)
Repentance is a prerequisite to belief. What is repentance? Its basic meaning is” "to change" or "to turn." Once a person hears the gospel and is convicted that his way of life is wrong, he must change his behavior and turn back to the Torah. The action of repenting; sincere regret or remorse.

remorsefulness, pangs of conscience, pricking’s of conscience, shame, guilt, self-reproach, self condemnation, compunction; For it is impossible to renew to repentance those who were once enlightened, who tasted the heavenly gift, who shared in the Holy Spirit, Hebrews 6:4 What happened to them shows that the proverbs are true: "A dog goes back to what it has vomited" and "A pig that has been washed goes back to roll in the mud." 2 Peter:22
God overlooked people’s ignorance about these things in earlier times, but now he commands everyone everywhere to repent of their sins and turn to Him and His Torah. Acts 17:30
Righteousness: Dear children, don’t let anyone deceive you about this: When people do what is right, it shows that they are righteous, even as Christ is righteous.1 John 3:7 I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners and need to repent. “Luke 5:32
The resurrection of the Messiah For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Matthew 12:40 (Good Friday until Easter Sunday is not 72 hours 3 days and three nights) He was resurrected on the Sabbath.
Resurrection: For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, (the last trumpet) with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the believers who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. 1 Thessalonians 4:17
Sin: Everyone who sins is breaking God’s law, for all sin is contrary to the law of God. 1 John 3:4
Salvation: “If you want to enter life, keep the commandments” Matthew 19:16
Peter’s words pierced their hearts, and they said to him and to the other apostles, “Brothers, what should we do? Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God and be baptized in the name of Yeshua Messiah for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:37 each person who turns to God in genuine repentance and faith will be saved"
Sabbath No other day has ever been sanctified as the day of rest. The Sabbath Day begins at sundown on Friday and ends at sundown on Saturday. Genesis 2:1-3; There is no place in the entire bible where you will find any verses changing the Sabbath to Sunday, Why doesn't it bother you when you worship on a different day than the day that God made holy? Exodus 20:8-
11; Isaiah 58:13-14; 56:1-8; Acts 17:2; Acts 18:4, 11; Luke 4:16; Mark
2:27-28; Matthew 12:10-12; Hebrews 4:1-11; Genesis 1:5, 13-14; Nehemiah 13:19. The Lord said to Moses: 13 You yourself are to speak to the Israelites: “You shall keep my Sabbaths, for this is a sign between me and you throughout your generations, given in order that you may know that I, the Lord, sanctify you. 14 You shall keep the Sabbath because it is holy for you; everyone who profanes it shall be put to death; Gen 2:1-3, Lev 23:3, Num 28:9-10, Exo 20:8-11, Deut 5:12-15 A convocation day. No work to be done. The 4th of the Ten Commandments, this is the only convocation day that occurs more than once a year. It was not a day that originated with the Jews and the Ten Commandments at Sinai, it preceded them. The seventh day (weekly) Sabbath is the Sabbath of the Lord (Lev 23:3), a memorial to the creation and the Creator established in Eden before the fall (Gen 2:1-3). Because it began at creation.
Spirit Romans 8:6-7 For the mindset on the flesh is death, but the mindset on the Spirit is life and peace because the mindset on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him! Luke 11:13 And hope does not put us to shame, and this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. Mark 13:11 We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him. .Galatians 3:14 in order that in Christ Yeshua the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles so that we would receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Three days and Three nights: For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Matthew 12:40 (72 hours)
The Great commission: Matthew 28:…18Then Yeshua came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. 19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of Yeshua Messiah( the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy) Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
1While Apollos was in Corinth, Paul traveled through the interior regions until he reached Ephesus, on the coast, where he found several believers. A 2“Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” he asked them. “No,” they replied, “we haven’t even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.”3“Then what baptism did you experience?” he asked. And they replied, “The baptism of John.”4Paul said, “John’s baptism called for repentance from sin. But John himself told the people to believe in the one who would come later, meaning Yeshua.” 5As soon as they heard this, they were baptized in the name of Yeshua Messiah. Then when Paul laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in other tongues and prophesied. 7There were about twelve men in all.
The lost tribe of Israel: Then Yeshua said to the woman, “I was sent only to help God’s lost sheep—the people of Israel. “Matthew 15:24 (page 27)
Torah: The word "Torah" in Hebrew is derived from the root ירה, which in the hif'il conjugation means 'to guide' or 'to teach' (cf. Lev 10:11). The meaning of the word is, therefore "teaching", "doctrine", or "instruction"; the commonly accepted "law" gives a wrong impression. Proverbs
30:6 Do not add to His words Or He will reprove you, and you will be proved a liar Proverbs 30:56 Every word of God is tested; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him. Do not add to His words Or He will reprove you, and you will be proved a liar Deuteronomy 12:32
"Whatever I command you, you shall be careful to do; you shall not add to nor take away from it. Matthew 22:29 But Yeshua answered and said to them, "You are mistaken, not understanding the Scriptures nor the power of God. Mark 7:13 thus invalidating the word of God by your tradition which you have handed down, and you do many things such as that." Revelation 22:18-19 I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which is written in this book.
Unclean: “‘These are the regulations concerning animals, birds, every living thing that moves about in the water and every creature that moves along the ground. 47 You must distinguish between the unclean and the clean, between living creatures that may be eaten and those that may not be eaten. ’Leviticus 11:13
"Therefore, come out from their midst and be separate" says the Lord. "AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN; And I will welcome you.2 Corinthians 6:17
Wise: The wise is one who hears and obeys. Psalm 19:7 The law of Yehovah is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of Yehovah is sure, making wise the simple; Matthew 7:24 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
White Throne Judgment eternal death the lake of fire. And I saw a great white throne, and Him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. Revelation 20:11
Worship? Worship is a truth-based, spiritual relationship with God that responds to God’s greatness by a daily dying to oneself, internalization of His truths, and practice of faith-filled actions in Christ. Romans 12:1-2 “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” 1 Corinthians 10:32 “whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. “Most people think the Torah (the law) is Dead? Or only for the Jews, Not According to 208 New Testament Verses.
