7) WE KEEP THE CREATOR'S CALENDAR
(We used to keep man's calendar)
Meaning we do not celebrate the high holy-days of Christianity (Christmas, Easter and Sunday observance) or any of the other days which have been set-apart by men to honor pagan deities. YHVH has set apart over 70 days a year for us to celebrate. Those are the appointments that we keep and we do so with delight! We use the Astronomically and Agriculturally Corrected Biblical Hebrew Calendar to help us live in this rhythm. There are inherent flaws in the other calendars and false teachings things like the floating lunar Sabbath and the fallacy of a sunrise-to-sunrise reckoning of a day. We keep the Seventh-day Sabbath from Friday evening to Saturday evening because a day is "evening and morning" as YHVH Elohim said and Yahshua never challenged the rabbis on when they were keeping the Shabbats. We sight the New Moon by the sliver because that is the most simple and the only method by which it is possible to sight it and to follow without depending on man. See our calendar statement for more.
8) WE ARE FOLLOWERS OF THE HEBREW MESSIAH, YAHSHUA HA'MASHIACH
(We used to follow the greek 'Jesus')
The traditional “Jesus” of Christianity is a white-western construction based on Greek thought and modern “enlightened” western philosophy. “Jesus” is not a translation of the Messiah's Hebrew name. "Yahshua” is the Hebrew son of the God of Israel. Yahshua was a Jew, an Israelite who came as a Hebrew to the Hebrews. He thought and spoke Hebrew. He read the Hebrew Torah. Those who followed him and the gospel writers were also Hebrews. Therefore, our Rabbi is the only true Messiah, the Hebrew man, Yahshua, Son of YHVH Elohim.
9) WE KEEP THE ROYAL LAW
(We used to keep a denominations "laws" which we found out were man-made laws)
There is only one everlasting Royal Law. It is found in Scripture written down in The Book of the Covenant at Exodus 19-24. To break it is death. See Rebekah's teaching on this. The Levitical Law, which was added law due to transgression of the Royal Law (that YHVH had originally made with Israel at the base of Mt. Sinai) was prescriptive law, never covenant law. Thousands of years after Israel broke that initial Contract with YHVH -– Yahshua, his son came to bring a New "Contract" (Covenant) and be the kinsman Redeemer. This contract is superiot to the first one as it comes with the Ruach ha'Kodesh (Jer. 31:31). The “New Covenant” or contract is not a new set of laws, but a new mechanism by which we are enabled to keep YHVH's everlasting Royal Law. This is very good news.
10) WE ARE MELCHIZEDEK PRIESTS
(We used to work for a church)
The plan at the time of the Exodus was for Israel to become a kingdom of Melchizedek priests to go into the world. Through Israel the whole world was to be blessed by bringing the nations into Israel and into covenant with their Creator so that they could be saved. Among many things, Yahshua came to make a way for Israel to again become his Melchizedek priests to the world. He was made the High Priest and King after the order of Melchizedek (the Melech Tzedek). Those of us who have agreed to the New Contract (Covenant) terms, are eating of Yahshua, have the indwelling of his gift--the Ruach ha'Kodesh and have made him our head (authority) are his priests to the world. We are his royal priesthood. His Melchizedek priests. You'll want to buy theBack to the Melchizedek Future book.
11) WHAT WE ARE NOT
3) THIS WEBSITE IS A COLLECTION PLACE FOR OUR CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES
(We are gathering Truth here for the next generation)
Outside of the desire to find community for our daughters, we view our ministry as a growing collection of da'at that our daughters and their families will be able to access at anytime in order to remember why dad and mom (and themselves) believed what they do (did). You are benefiting from our desire to create a place to collect the waters we drink from for them.
4) WE HAVE BEEN TAKEN TO THE WILDERNESS
(We have a personal story of loss at Yah's hand)
We lost our home and business in the financial dive of 2008 and lived off-grid in a tipi for 4 years and survived the harsh winters of North Idaho with young daughters. We know hard. We know the wilderness intimately. We know why we were taken to the wilderness. Through it we now know who our Elohim is and who we are in relationship to him. We do not speak with empty words, but have experience to speak from. We are available to speak on this topic during Sukkot.
