My son, go on with your business in meekness; so shall you be beloved of him that is approved. The greater you are, the more humble yourself, and you shall find favor before YAHUAH. Many are in high place, and of renown: but mysteries are revealed unto the meek. For the power of YAHUAH is great, and he is honored of the lowly. Seek not out things that are too hard for you, neither search the things that are above your strength. But what is commanded you, think thereupon with reverence, for it is not needful for you to see with your eyes the things that are in secret. SIRACH (ECCLESIASTICUS) 3:17-22 את CEPHER. The definition of secrecy is defined as the action of keeping something secret or the state of being kept secret. The Vatican in Rome has religious treasures of antiquity in the basement locked up and hidden from prying eyes that only the elites are privilege to view. Numerous social and secret organizations make their converts vow a life of secrecy before they are shown Cephers and rituals hidden from civilians and the general public. Yahusha Ha'Mashiach spoke in parables and if you didn't fully apply his teachings and ministry within your heart, then the parables would go over the common person head. Life holds numerous secrets since the creation of Babylon. Many individuals expire upon earth holding secrets affecting another individual's life detrimentally without remorse. Many people when given the opportunity to reveal their secrets, choose to stay silent and let their secrets be buried with them. What secrets are you hiding? Have you revealed past indiscretions to cleanse your heart and mind? Psychological researchers admit that hoarding secrets which causes or caused someone pain and misery can increase depression and guilt. Yahusha understood the hearts of mankind and knew that many Talmidiym (disciples) could not handle truth that will lead to redemption, so Yahusha chose to speak in parables. And his Talmidiym asked him, saying, What might this parable be? And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Elohiym: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand. Now the parable is this: The seed is the Word of Elohiym. Those by the way side are they that hear; then comes the devil, and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away. And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. No man, when he has lighted a candle, covers it with a vessel, or puts it under a bed; but sets it on a menorah, that they which enter in may see the light. For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hid, that shall not be known and come abroad. LUQAS (LUKE) 8:9-17 את CEPHER. What are you doing with your seed and how are you fertilizing the soil your seed landed on? Do you fast and repent regularly for a 24hr cleansing of the soul for health and wellness while apologizing to all those you verbally offended? Are you laying the groundwork to achieve a lifestyle that Satan cannot accuse you of? Do your pastor, preacher or priest emphasize the importance of spiritual atonement? Being a religious convert is great, but we must go beyond the ear tickling sermons and distraction of the choir and lay down the real groundwork of salvation. As a theological student at YAHUAH Assembly, we are just realizing the importance of the seven feasts chronicled in the Torah. This week we are observing Yom Kippuriym chronicled in VAYIQRA (LEVITICUS) 23:27-28 את CEPHER. This was one of the feasts that YAHUAH told to Moshe that the children of Yashar'el should observe. YAHUAH says it shall be a holy assembly unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto YAHUAH. And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is Yom Kippuriym, to make an atonement for you before YAHUAH Elohaykem. I wanted to know more about afflicting your soul and what does Yom Kippuriym truly mean. Yom Kippuriym is the sixth (6) of the seventh (7) feasts of YAHUAH. The feast is observed on the tenth (10) day of the seventh month on the Hebrew Calander. Yom Kippuriym is considered the day of Atonement and converts are advised to fast for 24hrs. Talking to other students at YAHUAH Assembly and individuals within the Yashar'el nation, it seems the feast is not observed because the ideology of Yom Kippuriym that it's either a tradition created by Jewish converts or Jewish holiday but what does the Cepher and precepts speak on the matter? YESHA'YAHU (ISAIAH) 58:1-6 את CEPHER says to lift up your voice like a shofar (a ram's-horn trumpet used in religious ceremonies and as a battle signal) and show my people their transgression, and the house of Ya`aqov their sins. We are too fast and afflict our soul to loose the bands of wickedness, undo the heavy burdens, let the oppressed go free, and break every yoke. This is an acceptable day to YAHUAH. Unlike the other pagan holidays and traditions that religious denominations observe, these feasts can be found in the Cepher and precepts.
No individual is above repentance and all those with former lifestyles of self-gratification and violence can be atoned for. As you read, I said former because your spiritual conversion depends on your courage and commitment to jettison previous baggage. This baggage must be packed with the disassociation of individuals currently conducting illegal street operations. Men or women engaged in extramarital affairs or living a sodomite or bisexual lifestyle. Friendship of Individuals that defraud other individuals with get rich schemes for financial gain. Your faith is similar to your voting rights where you have to protect it by any men's necessary.
Spiritual freedom is not given but achieved via study of TORAH and precepts. Daily repentance and evangelism are required to achieve an upright lifestyle. Speech and conduct will separate you from family members. co-workers and associates. Millions of religious converts attend weekly devotional services and still feel like they're in spiritual bondage. This is similar to the millions of Americans waiting in long lines to cast their vote in the Biden/Trump election. Since the emancipation proclamation and the introduction of the 15th amendment, barriers and obstacles were enacted to prevent all Americans from having the freedoms that European migrants cherish. Our First (1st) Amendment rights says that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Millions of Americans vote to have individuals represent us in local, national and federal political office but who represents spiritual converts that continues to sin and miss the mark. In my opinion, religious denominations have an alternative agenda that do not address the need for parishioners to fast, repent and cleanse their soul to maintain a solid connection to YAHUAH and Yahusha Ha'Mashiach. Since we have no Mosheh in our generation to lead the nation and converts out of Babylon, we have to observe feasts, shabbaths and holy assemblies to stay upright in a world plagued with evil and debauchery. For Mosheh had said, Consecrate yourselves today to Yahuah, even every man upon his son, and upon his brother; that he may bestow upon you a blessing this day. And it came to pass on the morrow, that Mosheh said unto the people, Ye have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up unto El-Yahuah; perchance I shall make an atonement for your sin. And Mosheh returned unto El-Yahuah, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them elohai of gold. Yet now, if you will forgive their sin; and if not, blot me, I pray you, out of your cepher which you have written. And Yahuah said unto Mosheh, Whosoever has sinned against me, him will I blot out of my cepher. SHEMOTH (EXODUS) 32:29-33 את CEPHER. The TORAH has been instrumental in changing the mindset of prisoners, elderly and the unrighteous but doesn't move the needle for those prospering in unrighteous behavior and their unrepentant lifestyle. The power of sin and wickedness lies in the hands of the powerful, who are under the obligations of the watchers. With hundreds of religious denominations gathered in working- and lower-class communities, diversions have been established to harness their zeal for religious freedom and spiritual exodus. Few can truthfully admit that their lifestyle is 100% (percent) righteous and upright. For the working- and lower-class communities worldwide, every day is a struggle to protect your family from harm. Single parents have the daunting task of providing shelter and food when living just above or below the poverty line. Few will admit it, especially religious converts, but many have resorted to stealing, falsifying and strait out lying to achieve a glimmer of hope and financial freedom for their family.
