Guidelines for Congregational Unity
As per Matthew 18:15, should a conflict or difference arise between you and another person:
Speak directly with that person in an attempt to work things out, if you are unable…
The two of you should reach out to 2-3 members who can serve as witnesses and provide sound biblical guidance; if you are unable…
The two of you should meet with an elder/pastor for resolution. Please do not skip steps 1 and 2 and go directly to step 3, as the Bible directs us to first attempt to resolve the issue without involving the leadership.
During the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Yahweh commands that no leavening be eaten or found on our premises, Exodus 12:19-20. Leavening is a substance used in doughs and batters that causes them to rise. Below are leavening agents and products found in a variety of foods that must be used up or removed by the Feast of Unleavened Bread along with a list of products often confused as leavening.
Leavening Agents and Products (please note that this is not an all encompassing list)
Active dried yeast

Why do you require ladies to wear a head covering during worship services and formal studies?
As the Bible states, all Scripture is profitable for instruction, including the New Testament. Knowing this, Paul in 1Corinthians 11:5-6 states that it is a dishonor for women to have their heads uncovered during times of prayer or worship: “But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.”
The word “covered” in verse 6 comes from the Greek katakalupto and means, “…to cover wholly, i.e. veil,” Strong’s. The Brown-Drive-Briggs states, “…to veil or cover oneself .” Clearly, katakalupto here refers to a physical covering or veil.
Adam Clarke’s Commentary concurs: “The only difference marked by the apostle was, the man had his head uncovered, because he was the representative of Christ; the woman had hers covered, because she was placed by the order of God in a state of subjection to the man, and because it was a custom, both among the Greeks and Romans, and among the Jews an express law, that no woman should be seen abroad without a veil. This was, and is, a common custom through all the east, and none but public prostitutes go without veils. And if a woman should appear in public without a veil, she would dishonour her head-her husband. And she must appear like to those women who had their hair shorn off as the punishment of whoredom, or adultery.” Note, YRM does not believe Paul requires that women be veiled at all times, but only during times of prayer and worship.
Some argue this position and state that Paul confirms in verse 15 that long hair represents this covering. The problem with this interpretation is that the word for “covering” in verse 15 is from an entirely different word. This word comes from the Greek peribolaion and refers to “something thrown around one, i.e. a mantle, veil,” Strong’s. Paul here is not referring to an artificial covering, but to the hair that also acts as a natural covering to enhance beauty, unlike the covering found in verse 5, which represents a physical covering. The one does not negate the other.
Yahweh’s Restoration Ministry is raising funds to help with the current relief effort for Hurricane Harvey. Brethren from several assemblies, including from Reach for Yahweh International Ministries, Shalom Assembly of Yahweh, Assembly of Yahweh (7th Day), and Yahweh’s Restoration Ministry are currently assisting victims in the Houston area. We are in need of additional funding for supplies. Please consider donating to this important effort!
In 2016 Yahweh’s Restoration Ministry traveled to Israel and filmed interesting programs in some of the most intriguing and amazing biblical sites in the Holy Land. Keep coming back as we add more videos as we edit them.
Is the Trinity doctrine in the Bible? Why do Christians believe in a Trinity? Lets take a clear and unbiased look at the Bible and Christian history. The Pagan Trinity Exposed.
The word “Trinity” and its concept is absent from the Old and New testaments.
The notion of the Trinity is not new, but goes back to the start of civilization.
The Trinity doctrine was not firmly established until over 300 years after the Messiah.
The codification of the Trinity was motivated from political pressure.
The Father is greater and superior to the Son.
The Holy Spirit represents the power of the Father, not a third of a Trinity.
The Father and Son are not one in being, but one in mind and goal
While the Messiah is not eternal, He preexisted as the active Word, i.e., logos.
As mankind ponders the nature of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, it’s important that we study and confirm the truth behind this crucial subject. This begins by letting go of preconceived thoughts and biases and acknowledging the pages of Scripture as the sole source of authority. Only through a forthright look at the Word can we decipher and break through 2,000 years of man’s tradition.
Where is the real temple mount location in Jerusalem where Solomon originally build the first temple and where the Tabernacle was located? Was the temple located on the Haram Al-Sharif under the Dome of the Rock? Where is the real temple mount? Is the temple located in the City of David? Does the Gihon Spring give us a cue to it’s location? What about the excavated area known as the Millo (fill), does this give us a clue? What about Fortress Antonia? Where did the tenth Roman legion of 10,000 soldiers live? Does the writings of Josephus help us on our quest? Is the model located in the Israel Museum even close to accurate or was Fort (Fortress) Antonia actually located on the Harem Al-Sharif? Don takes us on a visual tour from the Mount of Olives and discusses the evidence for the real temple location that was first popularized by Dr. Ernest Martin. As Bible prophecy comes alive, the key to the Temple location is incredibly important to building a final temple. Join Pastor Randy Folliard and Elder Don Esposito on this fascinating video tour of the real temple mount.
Also, watch Pastor Randy’s two-part sermon delivered live during the 2017 Feast of Tabernacles examining the evidence for the temple being located within the city of David and not on today’s traditional Temple Mount.
