Electronic Passover and Feast
Because of the Corona virus national quarantine, we will broadcast the Passover memorial service and high day services live online. Worshiping remotely is an option in light of the virus outbreak. We have a biblical precedent for quarantine in Leviticus 13 with leprosy.
YRM Bible Study Canceled for the Next Two Sabbaths
Because of the spartan Sabbath attendance resulting from local quarantine, we will cancel Sabbath Bible study for the next two weeks. We will, however, be broadcasting the Sabbath services live online.
Pray for Yahweh’s People and the Nation
At this time we should all go to Yahweh with prayer and fasting. May Yahweh protect His people and have mercy on our nation, as He spared Nineveh when they repented. “If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.” 2Chronicles 7:13-15.
Abib New Moon March 25
We encourage all to look for and report the new moon crescent March 25, as this will start the 14 day count to Passover, evening of April 7.
Yahweh’s Cleanliness Laws for Sickness
Yahweh had the Centers for Disease Control beat by 4,000 years! In the Levitical laws of cleanliness Yahweh instructs how to stem the spread of germs. In Leviticus 15 is what to do in cases of a discharge, like mucus from a viral sickness:
“And Yahweh spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When any man hath a running issue out of his flesh, because of his issue he is unclean. And this shall be his uncleanness in his issue: whether his flesh run with his issue, or his flesh be stopped from his issue, it is his uncleanness. Every bed, whereon he lieth that hath the issue, is unclean: and everything, whereon he sitteth, shall be unclean. And whosoever toucheth his bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. And he that sitteth on anything whereon he sat that hath the issue shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. And he that toucheth the flesh of him that hath the issue shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. And if he that hath the issue spit upon him that is clean; then he shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. … and he that beareth any of those things shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. And whomsoever he toucheth that hath the issue, and hath not rinsed his hands in water, he shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. And the vessel of earth, that he toucheth which hath the issue, shall be broken: and every vessel of wood shall be rinsed in water. And when he that hath an issue is cleansed of his issue; then he shall number to himself seven days for his cleansing, and wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be clean,” Leviticus 15:2-13.
TEST YOUR TUTELAGE
What is the first thing the believer should strive for?
A. A personal relationship with Yahshua.
C. The Kingdom
All of the choices listed above are good. But Yahshua explicitly commanded us to seek first the Kingdom of His Father (Matt 6:32-33). His emphasis on the Father’s will interprets this expression for us. By “Kingdom” He means “rulership.” That is, seek Yahweh’s rulership in your life. This is proven by the entire expression in that passage: “But seek ye first His Kingdom and Righteousness.” One of the most pathetic of circumstances is one who refuses to understand biblical imperatives and makes the physical his or her top priority, yet claims to know Yahweh “in his heart.” Answer: C
