Internally I have some things that I feel led to share on this day before Shabbat. If anything these words may be entirely for my

own benefit and not anyone else, and I am content with that and I apologize for the ramblings, however in any case Face book
simply becomes the mouth piece to voice the matters weighing on my mind and heart. I am suddenly, articulately aware that as
soon as I personally find myself being within a threshold or liminal period and getting ready to cross that threshold from point A to
Point B, then immediately the distractions, the trials, and the tribulations present themselves in order to push me backwards into a
position of stagnation. Some of you who may take the time to read this, have most likely seen or heard me emphasizing the idea of
mechanics and character, with the heavy push being on obtaining the character without leaving or forgetting the mechanics. As

we continue to grow in the mechanics of YHWHs ways(learning how to do the commandments) it is essential that we also
progress in His Character being our character. Ladies and Gentlemen, I will not lie to you or sugar coat the fact and sharp reality
that this is the absolute hardest thing we will ever have to master on this earth. As soon as one recognizes this fact , life becomes
more difficult and we must determine which filters we will use in order to keep the evil one from slowing down this process of
transformation.
Those personal filters are what is going to help each one of us determine if we are going to be hot, cold or lukewarm as individuals
as we see in Revelation 3:15-16

and neither cold nor hot, I am going to vomit you out of My mouth.

It is important to see the legal , working relationship between the mechanics and character. Those traits are meant to be working
together within us to make us into the image of Elohim that HE intended in the
very beginning. Made in His Image is not meant to be a mechanics or form verse only, it is a complete package text. Many of

us have chosen all 3 categories of hot, cold and lukewarm if we are honest. Some us are hot in the mechanics but cold in the
character or vice versa. The threshold or liminal period of mediocrity and lukewarmness by far seems to be the most dangerous.

Past Torah Portion Vaera- Exodus 6:2-9:35

Why is that?
Isnt being hot or cold just as pivotal?
Yes in a sense, but I think those positions are at least in a recognizable area of wanting to progress. How many of us will
find that perfect balance that YHWH is searching for? Hopefully, prayerfully many more than we think.
Firstly though, the introspection must always begin individually and continue on every day. This same working relational principle
is seen all throughout Scripture. Consider the following: Mind & Heart, Earthly & Heavenly, Flesh & Spiritual. Life & Eternity The
First word in each of these phrase groups represents the form. The & symbol is meant to be recognized as the
liminal/threshold. And lastly the second word is the function of why the form is in existence. We literally could spend all day
adding to these categories of showing Point A being the form or mechanics to getting us across the threshold to the Character or
Function of Point B.
These principles will become extremely visual when we start looking at the Temple in the coming months with torah portions in
Leviticus. Everything within the realm of YHWHs Kingdom has been formed, and it has a function. This is why the study of the
Tabernacle/Temple/Sacrificial system is so pivotal. If we do not grasp the why of the form and function, how can we ever
understand where we are going? The functions ladies and gentlemen are what leads into HIS Character. When we get stuck in the
mechanics or form mindset only, we are hindered. When we get past the form and mechanics into the threshold is where we
must be on guard and recognize it is part of the process. For example, if we go thru the act or mechanics of putting on the Armor
of Elohim as we see in Ephesians 6, but is it only in the notion of putting it on, is it really armor?

Eph 6:11-20 Put on the complete armor of Elohim, for you to have power to stand against the schemes of the devil. (12)
Because we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against authorities, against the world-rulers
of the darkness of this age, against spiritual matters of wickedness in the heavenlies. (13) Because of this, take up the
complete armor of Elohim, so that you have power to withstand in the wicked day, and having done all, to stand. (14) Stand,
then, having girded your waist with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, (15) and having fitted your
feet with the preparation of the Good News of peace; (16) above all, having taken up the shield of belief with which you
shall have power to quench all the burning arrows of the wicked one. (17) Take also the helmet of deliverance, and the
sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of Elohim, (18) praying at all times, with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit,
watching in all perseverance and supplication for all the set-apart ones; (19) also for me, that a word might be given to me
in the opening of my mouth, to be bold in making known the secret of the Good News, (20) for which I am an envoy in
chains, that in it I might speak boldly, as I should speak.

Ladies and gentlemen this is why we always have this constant battle within our flesh, this constant battle between good and
evil, this constant battle between us the principalities, this constant battle of the old man and new man, this constant battle of
renewing our mind & heart to become more like YHWH and Messiah.

Rom 12:1-21 I call upon you, therefore, brothers, through the compassion of Elohim, to present your bodies a living offering
set-apart, well-pleasing to Elohim your reasonable worship. (2) And do not be conformed to this world, but be
transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you prove what is that good and well-pleasing and perfect desire of
Elohim. (3) For I say, through the favour which has been given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself
more highly than he should think, but to think soberly, as Elohim has given to each a measure of belief. (4) For as we have

not idle in duty, ardent in spirit, serving the Master; (12) rejoicing in the expectancy, enduring under pressure, continuing

those who persecute you bless and do not curse. (15) Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.
(16) Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not be proud in mind, but go along with the lowly. Do not be wise in your
own estimation. (17) Repay no one evil for evil. Respect what is right in the sight of all men. (18) If possible, on your part, be
at peace with all men. (19) Beloved, do not revenge yourselves, but give place to the wrath, for it has been written,

for in so doing you shall heap coals of fire on his head. (21) Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

There are so many other things that I would add to this post but I am now wondering if these words only make sense in my own
mind. My encouragement to everyone is to just make the Kingdom of YHWH your goal. Strive to be the men and woman that HE
would want to spend eternity with. Find ways and filters to master the flesh, the mechanics and the forms so you can obtain the

series of movies called Eddie and the Cruisers. The first one, believe it or not had some principle to it. There was a particular
scene at the end of the movie that a profound effect on me, and honestly I never knew why until this very day. One of the main
characters is Frank the keyboard player , also known as Word Man because he was the late addition to the band and was a

history of the group and on the life of Eddie who supposedly drove his car off a cliff from being distraught that his new record was
