man made laws that replace
YHVH\u2019s Law. Man would
rather follow their own laws
and traditions than following
YHVH is the centre of everything. You can analyse a Psalm by counting the number
of times the name YHVH occurs and then look at where it occurs in the centre, so
that we can find the \u201cheart\u201d of the Psalm. YHVH is our main focus and this should not
be any different from when we study the Scriptures. YHVH will reveal His wisdom to
us and this can be found within His Word if we are willing to dig a bit deeper and
ponder on His Word.
We count six \u201cYHVH\u2019s\u201d in this Psalm and it is good if there are seven, because then it fits the
Menorah pattern and we can see the centre or \u201cheart\u201d of the Psalm. In this case there are
only six and the centre two would be the third and the fourth and is found in verses 6 and 7.
These two letters looks similar and they can be confused and this we see a warning. Do not
confuse the only \u201cWay\u201d, the \u201cDoor\u201d of Salvation (Y\u2019shua) with \u201chuman traditions and human
reasoning\u201d better known as legalism or dead works. The Church confused this issue by
stating that following YHVH\u2019s Law is legalistic and
you should ONLY have faith. Faith\u2019s true meaning is
rooted in actions and to be faithful in that which you
believe is the Truth. Y\u2019shua came to cleanse His
Word or Law from man made traditions (Pharisaic
teachings) so that man can follow YHVH\u2019s Law
without man\u2019s polluted opinions. Confusing theDa le t
for theR e sh is exactly what legalism is and people
believe that they can enter YHVH\u2019s Kingdom
following man made traditions as stipulated by the
Religious system known as the \u201cChurch\u201d today.
Commandments when he killed
his brother. If you sin, you
normally break more than one
Commandment in a single
Gen 9:5 tells us the story were Cain killed Abel and where
YHVH \u201cadded laws\u201d to prevent man from doing this again.
\u201cAdding Laws\u201d is not adding something new, but rather revealing
His Character and Nature to man to show them where they fell
short from His standard of life He lives. He did this to help man
understand what is acceptable in His eyes and what not, what
He would do and not do.
He said He would \u201cdarash\u201d or seek the blood from the people
who shed it. In other words; they have to give their own blood for
the blood of others that was spilled or wasted. The life is in the
blood and that person\u2019s blood or life belonged to YHVH and
someone else took it without permission. This forms the basis of
the eighth Commandment, as was give to Moses on the
Mountain. To spill someone\u2019s blood is to take his life and we
should not kill and we see that this story also forms the basis of the sixth Commandment as
was given to Moses on the Mountain.
Why did Cain do this? Because of jealousy, envied his brother because YHVH did not accept
his way of worship, rejecting his sacrifice. I believe that Cain sacrificed the way he thought
was right and Abel did it the way YHVH wanted it. This brings us back to the previous point,
confusing the \u201cdalet\u201d with the \u201cresh\u201d or YHVH\u2019s Ways with man\u2019s ways or legalism. Cain is a
very good example to us of what legalism is and that YHVH rejects this form of worship to
Him. We also see that Cain covet his brother\u2019s favour he had with YHVH and this drove him
to kill his brother. This brings us to the foundation of the tenth Commandment; \u201c\u2026\ue011\ue00b\ue012\ue000\ue004\ue002\ue00a\ue019\ue019\ue000
When YHVH asked Cain where his brother was he did not tell Him directly but gave an
answer that was not a direct lie, but it was open for interpretation. To lead people to make an
assumption that is not the truth is exactly the same as
telling a lie. Cain tried it with YHVH but he did not get
away with it. Cain broke the Commandment as we know it
in the Ten Commandments today, and that was the ninth
Cain broke the sixth, eighth, ninth and tenth
Commandments, and they are found on the second half of
the Ten Commandments. These Commandments are
about man, and this links beautifully with this Psalm\u2019s heart, which is also about man. If you
look at the Name of YHVH in Hebrew we find the letter that represents man right in the \u201cheart\u201d
of His Name or Himself.
The \u201cLaw\u201d is not a bad in it self and it only exposes what evil and bad
things are. If you sin without the knowledge of the Commandments, you
still sin according to YHVH\u2019s Holy Standard for life. Sin is everything
that YHVH wouldn\u2019t do and if you do those things you sin, even if it is
not written anywhere. YHVH gave us His Law to teach us and to coach
us in the knowledge of His Holiness so that we may be elevated to His
standard of Life. Men could not do it out of themselves and that is why
Y\u2019shua had to come in the flesh, so that we can receive His Spirit. His
Spirit writes His Law in our hearts and He helps us to follow Him.
The Torah is a guiding rod and a measuring stick that helps us to measure yourselves so that you can know which areas of our lives needs attention. You then ask YHVH to help you with the power of the Spirit, to change that action so that you can grow up in spiritual maturity and become clean and holy.
Looking at this word we see the house \u201cBet\u201d, The \u201cback of the head\u201d or \u201chidden face\u201d or
\u201crepentance\u201d \u201cQof\u201d and purifying fire \u201cShin\u201d. Seeking in this word is to seek YHVH\u2019s house, to
enter into it, to seek His face starting with repentance, and to allow yourself to be \u201ccleansed\u201d
and \u201cpurified\u201d like silver is purified by fire.
This verse here is where Jacob left his uncle Laban with al his possessions, his children and
his two wives. Laban accused Jacob of stealing his idols and Jacob said that he could
\u201csearch\u201d all his goods and kill the one who possessed it. Unfortunately it was his beloved wife
Rachael who had stolen and hid the idols. She later died giving birth and it is believed that
this \u201ccurse\u201d came on her because of this sin she committed. This is the consequence of falling
short of the Standard of YHVH; if you follow idols and worship them, you will surely die, even
if you are His beloved child. This completes the five Commandments with adding the seventh
Commandment to the Commandments relating to man. You
shall not commit adultery. But you may say that she did not
cheat on her husband but only had idols in her possession.
To worship idols as the Bride of YHVH is exactly the same as
cheating on Him as your Husband. If you have accepted
Y\u2019shua you are technically married and if you have idols in
your possession, you are breaking the marriage covenant
with Him. As we have seen in the theme of Ps 24 that it
This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
