Bible Readings: Psalms 7

There are times when a person will speak against you. Usually the timing is when you are in the most vulnerable situations, their true feelings will come out. Then you realize you have an enemy although you did unto them no wrong. In David’s case he fled from Absalom his son, to save his life. At that moment came out …

Bible Readings: Psalms 6

Sickness is a common occurrence, physically and mentally. In this psalm David prays for healing, acknowledging that it could be rebuke (correction) for angering the Heavenly Father. It is not common belief that sickness could be correction from the most High or that healing comes from him. Apocrypha Ecclesiasticus 38:9 “My son, in thy sickness be not negligent: but pray …

Bible Readings: Psalms 5

The prior chapter was an evening prayer, while this is the morning prayer. Romans 8:26 “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” Some deny themselves the benefits of prayer because they do not know …

Bible Readings: Joel 1

The name Joel means YHWH is God. This book depicts vividly the power of the most High God. Joel 1:15 “Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.” The message is clear the Heavenly Father through any means could bring destruction. One example mentioned are …

Bible Readings: Psalms 2

For these past few weeks we set the Passover as our priority, as we always do. Meaning that we chose to be offline for a while. But don’t worry we didn’t forget about you! We also use that time to determine what should be done for the website and be productive in the mean time. One of our greatest priorities …

Psalms 1

On this eighth day of Deuteronomy chapter 28 we are releasing Psalms chapter 1 as a podcast. The book of Psalms is a collection of spiritual songs. 1st Chronicles 16:9 “Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his wondrous works.” The majority of Psalms was written by king David to thank the Heavenly Father for being …

Hosea 14

The name Hosea means salvation. In this final chapter, we must ask ourselves if we understand the things spoken in this book to attain it. Hosea 14:9 “Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors …

Hosea 13

Countless times I have heard “I don’t worship this!” as they point to the jewelry hanging on their neck. Hosea 13:2 “And now they sin more and more, and have made them molten images of their silver, and idols according to their own understanding, all of it the work of the craftsmen: they say of them, Let the men that …

Hosea 12

The prosperity of our people is in the Heavenly Father. Job 36:11 “If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.” An example of this is our father Jacob. After being blessed by his father Isaac, he fled from his brother Esau (whom he battled from the womb). This caused him …

Hosea 11

Earlier chapters of this book, undoubtedly informs us of the Messiah (Christ) directly. Matthew 2:15 “And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.” Some background is needed to understand what this verse is speaking of, Herod was …

Proverbs 1

The book of Proverbs is a collection of sayings that was written by Solomon. Unlike most sayings these are rooted in the commandments of God which means they have wisdom. 1st Chronicles 22:12 “Only the LORD give thee wisdom and understanding, and give thee charge concerning Israel, that thou mayest keep the law of the LORD thy God.” This was …

Hosea 10

Christ taught that we would be known by our fruits. Matthew 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” Verse 16: “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?” Keeping in mind what we learned yesterday of the analogy of our …

Hosea 9

The concept taught by the Apostle Paul of men being considered the first fruits is found within this chapter. Hosea 9:10 “I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the firstripe in the fig tree at her first time: but they went to Baalpeor, and separated themselves unto that shame; and their abominations were according …

Music to my Ears

The scriptures in our ancient language (Hebrew) used to be sung; this was the case even before the book of Psalms was written. The book of Psalms actually means songs. James 5:13 “Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.”This book contains very good prayers, especially for those in affliction that do not …

Hosea 7

Many are met with the mercy of the Heavenly Father and either ignore it or just do not have the ability to acknowledge it. If by chance you are of the few that discovered this great mystery, do not take it for granted. In this chapter we learn, how in the past our forefathers returned but it wasn’t sincere. The …

Hosea 6

As we discussed yesterday, there are many sayings that our people have to justify living in sin. When confronted with the teachings of the law the first reaction is to look for blame in the person. Philippians 2:15 “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, …

Hosea 5

At times our people ask why they suffer oppression or injustice. One of the reasons explained in this chapter is because they “willing walked after the commandment” of men while rejecting those of God. Christ explains this in detail in Mark 7:6-8. Since the whoredom of Israel was to go and worship false gods; such as stocks meaning a tree …

Hosea 4

It is time to “Hear the word of the LORD”, as this chapter declares. Why are the minds of our people so far from truth? Whoredom and not being sober takes away the heart. For this reason our people are flooded with content (music, videos, pictures, etc..) everyday to capture their attention towards the trap. After your mind, heart, and …

Hosea 3

The downfall of the nation of Israel as Hosea puts it was whoredom. Meaning they committed adultery against the Heavenly Father by seeking after other gods. Although Hosea makes us understand clearly the sin, some have actually attempted to justify their sin. Some brothers that wear purple have asked “Are Images Wrong?”. They accuse brothers that teach against the sin …

Universal Genesis: Online Bible 2.0

As audio files are uploaded, each chapter within the Online Bible will reflect the change. More importantly the audio file is available for download directly from the site. This …

Apocrypha in Spanish

One of the rarest books in the world for Spanish speaking individuals is the Apocrypha. For those that never heard of the Apocrypha, it is fourteen books that were always part of the Bible but later labeled by Jerome (Roman) the Latin translator as such. At another time we will talk much more about this history. Today we are happy to announce that an online version has been made available for Download. Soon, every book will be displayed individually as well.

Thank you Sister V

Most sisters are not aware that they could be very helpful to the truth of the Heavenly Father. In the scriptures there is constant proof of this, although it is not taught often. Philippians 4:3 “And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.” For instance yesterday (on the Sabbath) we received an email from a sister that informed us of a misprint in the Apocrypha PDF (printer friendly) download. Besides correcting what she pointed out to us we also took the time to make some improvements to the PDF.

Such as adding shortcuts links in the Table of Contents page to jump to the book desired. The previous version had bookmarks to each book but for the technically challenged it was hard to find. Now you do not have to worry about looking for the bookmark since the Table of Contents actually provides the same ability. Yet if you were proficient with the bookmarks; Ecclesiasticus now has additional bookmarks to skip 10 chapters at a time. Finally everyone should know that the Apocrypha Download works on any device; on your computer, tablet, and phone. But if you are like me you printed it out and wrote precepts (link ups to other scriptures) on the sides. In the near future we want to introduce a separate version that contains the precepts that we added during our studies.

Corrections: Ecclesiasticus 36:25-26 (missing verse), Tobit 8:7 (replaced lush with lust), and 2 Maccabees 7:27 (replaced such with suck).

Apocrypha Update

Shalam brothers and sisters we have uploaded a new version of the Apocrypha with corrections that were made to the book of Baruch, Bel and the Dragon, and Prayer of Manasses.

Sometime soon this page will contain the breakdown of proving the authenticity of the Apocrypha according to the scriptures. Please look out also for those podcast lessons. Shalam!
