Leviticus 4:20 NKJV
20 And he shall do with the bull as he did with the bull as a sin offering; thus he shall do with it. So the priest shall make atonement for them, and it shall be forgiven them.
May we remember in this season, especially during The Day of Atonement (Oct. 4-5), in which our High Priest Yeshua our Messiah King and our God, honors His Father, The God of Israel, our Father of all and Creator of all in fulfilling the oath spoken through the order of Melchizedek who prophesied God’s Word of our Eternal High Priest Who established the eternal priesthood. (Hebrews 7)
Forgiveness Brings Release
Forgiveness according to the Biblical Hebraic terminology is transliterated as “pardon and/or spare”. Many times throughout life’s journey we will encounter turmoil, trauma, oppression, and suppression to name a few negative effects. Surely the offenses that one inflicts and causes another to carry induce the bearing of the burden of which memories and pain are the emotional prisons that both parties are ultimately sentenced to. Isn’t it ironic, that the same person carrying the pain is the same one who holds the key to releasing this encapsulation? As we say The Lord’s Prayer, we are encouraged by Messiah’s Example to forgive others as God The Father forgives us. In forgiving those who’ve trespassed against us, we encompass the evidence of true love by obeying our God and King as well as showing compassion for those who did not have it for us…this is the essence of unconditional love…for God is Love. (Matthew 6 & 1 John 4)
Matthew 6:14 NKJV
For if you forgive men their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you.
Colossians 3:13 NKJV
13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.
Who Created God?
Interesting that the human mind cannot fully fathom the sheer magnificence and everlasting Holiness and Glory of The Almighty. To be clear, God is Power…that is literally one of His Names. Elohim in the original Biblical Hebraic text can not only reference GOD or “gods”, but Elohim is also transliterated as “Power” in the masculine singular form. In Job 38, The Lord reveals His Omnipotence to Job, God confirms that everything that is created has a Creator. Our God Who Is Elohim[Power] is our Father of all and Creator of all. He knew us, formed & knitted us together in the womb. He placed measurements and doors among the skies, the waters, and the earth. He knows for He designed the very nature of every beast of the earth, every seed & yield, the very intricacies of the functional operations around us that brings forth the cycle of the seasons, and the mysteries of the heavens are revealed in the time and seasons designated and governed by the lights in the sky.
Another amazing mystery is the dynamics of the “Ehhad“, the original Biblical Hebraic word for “Unity” which is The Father and Son. Make no mistake our God is NOT triune (3-in-1), rather God is Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh, His Name that He gave to Moses in Exodus chapter 3. This Holy and Unique Name is transliterated among other terms as “I Exist He Exists“. His Name is an “Intimate” Name, meaning those who know God intimately, will know His Name given to Moses.
Our Creator, Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh, is the Everlasting Power[ELOHIM] without measure and has the Excellent Wisdom within Him. He is Omnipotent and can manifest in any form including but not limited to Spirit, Fire, Whirlwind, Angel, and Flesh as seen throughout The Holy Scriptures. (John 5:16-30, Honor The Father and Son)
Who Am I?
While we were yet in the world apart from God in those treacherous days. Many often struggle with this very question. Sifting through misguidance looking for confirmation and assurance. Then one great day, we were shifted, we looked up and took The Hand of The King, and were transformed by the Saving Grace of Yeshua’s Blood for The Light had come into the World. In those moments we learned wisdom, gained knowledge, and learned the Truth about The One Who is Love. We embraced our purpose and identity ordained before our time and we continue to rest [Shabbat] in the Cornerstone of our Faith, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Who Am I? We are special, loved, unique, peculiar vessels made of dust…formed of clay in The Hands of The Potter. (Jeremiah 18/1 Peter 2)
Philippians 2:5 NKJV
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you.

Did You Know?
Deborah was a prophet and judge.
Deborah[Debbora] is one of a handful of female prophets in The Scriptures and one of the major judges (charismatic military leaders, not juridical figures) in the story of how Israel takes the land of Canaan. She is the only female judge, the only one to be called a prophet, and the only one described as performing a judicial function. As well as one of the most influential women of the Bible.
According to the Book of Judges, Deborah was a prophet of The God of the Israelites, the fourth Judge of pre-monarchic Israel, and the only female judge mentioned in The Holy Scriptures.
Deborah was a wife to Lapidoth and a worshipping warrior who meditated on The Word of God, she was one of courage and righteousness that inspired God’s people[Israel] to war and walk in victory over their Canaanite oppressors.
Judges 4:9 NKJV
9 So she said, “I will surely go with you; nevertheless there will be no glory for you in the journey you are taking, for the Lord will sell Sisera into the hand of a woman.” Then Deborah arose and went with Barak to Kedesh.
