Natan’s Commentary on 2 Samuel Chapters 7 to 21

2 Samuel 7

2 Samuel 7:9, I have…cut off all your enemies.YHVH informed David through Nathan the prophet that he had cut off all David’s enemies. However, this didn’t occur by David sitting on his thumbs and doing nothing, while, at the same time, expecting YHVH to defeat his enemies for him. No. David had to actively and aggressively literally fight against his enemies. Only then did YHVH help David to defeat them. There is a lesson here for us. If we need deliverance from our enemies (e.g., sin, addictions, sickness, poverty, demons, persecution, evil people or whatever), we have to do our part. Sometimes, YHVH will give us novel and unconventional ways to defeat our enemies as he did on many occasions with David and the Israelites at other times. Nevertheless, for YHVH to intervene miraculously on behalf of his saints, they still needed to be doing their part: seeking him and trusting in, obeying him and sometimes even physically battling their enemies. Although it appears nowhere in the Scriptures, it would seem that the old adage that Elohim helps those who help themselves has some merit.

2 Samuel 7:12–14, After. A Messianic prophecy. After(in verse 12) is the Hebrew word acharmeaning “following, hereafter, afterwards, behind.”Was this prophecy of Nathan fulfilled in Solomon, David’s son and the subsequent king over Israel? Certainly Solomon’s reign followed, was after or behind David’s kingly reign. Furthermore, when this prophecy was given Solomon was not yet born. This did not happen until David’s liaison with Bathsheba in chapter 11. So it appears that this prophecy could have been fulfilled by Solomon…until we come to verse 13, 16 and Whoever the subject of this prophecy is, it is said that his kingdom will last forever (verses 13 and 16). This certainly was not the case with Solomon. The biblical record shows us that the kingly line of David ceased in 586 B.C. (lasting only a little more than 400 years) with the conquering of Judah by the Babylonians.

Furthermore, this prophecy speaks in verse 19 of David’s house lasting “a great while to come”(KJV).The ArtScroll Stone Edition Tanach renders the same passage as follows: “in the distant future.”The Complete Jewish Biblereads “on into the distant future.”Additionally, it was said of David’s descendant who would build this house (temple) and establish a throne that it would last a long while into the future and that YHVH would be his father and he would be YHVH’s son (verse 14). This was the case with Solomon for a while until he became apostate in his latter years. There is no clear biblical record that he ever returned to YHVH, his father.

It is true that YHVH promised to establish Solomon’s throne forever (1 Kgs 2:45; 9:5; 10:9; 1 Chron 17:12, 14; 22:10), but conditional only upon Solomon’s faithful obedience to YHVH (1 Kgs 9:4, 6–9). This Solomon failed to do and his throne was not established forever. 

There was one Person, however, who descended from David who was obedient to all of YHVH’s commandments, whose father was YHVH-Elohim, and who established the throne of David forever: It was Yeshua the Messiah. In fact, 2 Samuel 7:14 even speaks of the virgin birth of this Messianic figure when it says quite literally, “I will be his father, and he shall be my son.”

To add more validity to our contention that 2 Samuel 7:12–19 is a prophetic reference to the Messiah, let us look at Psalm 45:6ff (cp. Heb 1:8), which is a notable messianic passage: “Thy throne, O Elohim, is for ever and ever: the scepter of thy kingdom is a right scepter.” Isaiah 9:6–7 contains a similar messianic prophecy: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty Elohim, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the YHVH of hosts will perform this.

It is our belief in light of the above facts that Nathan the prophet gave David a prophecy about his throne being established forever through the yet unborn Solomon who, had he remained obedient to YHVH’s commandments, would have been the recipient and fulfiller of this prophecy. However, since Solomon turned away from YHVH the prophecy of Nathan defaulted to its secondary and more important fulfillment, that is, Yeshua the Messiah would become the eventual recipient of King David’s throne forever.

2 Samuel 10

2 Samuel 10:5, Beards have grown.Obviously it was the custom for all Israelite men to have beards in biblical times. If not, then these men would not have been ashamed simply to shave off the other half of their beards and return to Israelite society clean shaven.

2 Samuel 12

2 Samuel 12:8, Your master’s wives into your bosom.This phrase can’t be construed as YHVH’s carte blanche approval or promotion of polygamy. According to The TWOT, bosom (קיח/khake) in Hebrew has a variety of meanings (depending on context). It can be a euphemism for sexual intimacy (Gen 16:5), or can represent a variety of other abstract or figurative ideas from family intimacy (Deut 28:54; Mic 7:5), tender care or concern for a pet animal (2 Sam 12:3), a mother’s care her child (1 Kgs 17:19; Ruth 4:16), and YHVH’s caring for his people by carrying them figuratively in his arms (next to his breast, Isa 40:11). In the case of 2 Samuel 12:8, YHVH giving the old king’s wives into the new king’s bosom showed the new king’s authority over the old king, since that which belonged to the previous king now belongs to the new king. In accordance with khake meaning “to care for,” some English Bibles have translated the phrase “into your bosom” (KJV) as “into your care” (see NAS95), or “into your keeping” (NKJV).

2 Samuel 15

2 Samuel 15:7, Forty years.This is impossible. This is likely a copyist error in the Masoretic Text. Some LXX manuscripts, the Aramaic and Josephus say “four years.” The rabbinic sages admit that this could not have meant the fortieth year of David’s reign, since that was the year he died, and as the last chapters of 2 Samuel show, he lived for at least another several years after this incident. The Jewish sages say that this 40 years is reckoned from the time that Samuel anointed David king (The ArtScroll Rubin Edition 2 Samuel Commentary).

This is not the only place in the Tanakh where the some LXX manuscripts, the Aramaic and sometimes the Dead Sea Scrolls are odds with the Masoretic Text. (See note at 1 Sam 6:19.)

2 Samuel 15:23, Brook Kidron.This brook which flowed in the Kidron Valley, which is east of the old city of Jerusalem and is at the base of the Mount of Olives, is about 39 feet higher today and is located about 89 feet to the east than in ancient times because of the rubble that was dumped therein. At that time, run-off and flash floods during the rainy season would drain down into the Kidron Valley making it a seasonal watercourse. The rest of the time, it was dry. At the base of the Kidron Valley, the Cheesemongers (or Tyropoeon) and the Hinnom Valleys merge into the Kidron (International Standard Biblical Encyclopedia, vol. 3, p. 14). In ancient Jerusalem, the Cheesemongers Valley that ran west of the present Temple Mount’s western wall served as a drain for the runoff and sewage of the temple area (Golden Jerusalem, by Menashe Har-El, p. 59). Blood from the temple sacrifices and sewage flowed down the Cheesemongers Valley into the Kidron Valley where the it acted as fertilizer for the luxurious King’s Garden (2 Kgs 25:4; Neh 3:15; ibid., p. 159). Excess water from the Gihon spring also flowed into the lower section of the Kidron Valley and into the King’s Garden International Standard Biblical Encyclopedia, vol. 3, p. 14).

The Kidron Valley begins at the watershed of the Judean mountains and flows east in a twisting and turning manner to the Dead Sea south of the Qumran ruins (Golden Jerusalem, by Menashe Har-El, p. 92). On the opposite side of the water-divide and the west of the Kidron Valley is Nahal Sorek, which flows to the Mediterranean Sea. Both of these valleys serve as roadways. The western valley connected to Sea Road (Via Maris) along the Mediterranean and Jaffa, while the eastern valley connected to the King’s Road near the Jordan Valley. When the Messiah comes, Jerusalem will be a source of living waters which will flow in these valleys to the east and west all year long (Zech 14:8; ibid. p. 89).

The Kidron Valley drained the Mount of Olives and Mount Scopus in the east and much of Jerusalem on the west and formed the borderline between the tribes of Benjamin and Judah.

The Kidron Valley is subdivided by name into several smaller valleys. The section of the valley directly below the Mount of Olives is called Valley of Gethsemane. The next section of the Kidron Valley is considerably deeper and is called the Valley of Jehoshaphat (Joel 3; 2, 12). This is the present area of the Absalom and Zechariah’s tombs or monuments. The next section is called the Valley of Shiloach, since the Gihon Spring flowing into the Pool of Shiloach overflows into this part of the valley. This is the present site of the Arab village known as Silwan (ibid. pp. 92–93). 

Various events and activities took place in different sections of the Kidron Valley and it was vital to the social and economic life of Jerusalem. For example, 2 Kings 23:4 mentions “the fields of Kidron, which referred to the grain fields that grew there. According to the Mishnah, the omer offering was brought to the temple from this area (Menahot 10:2–5; 8:1). The southern slope of these fields are warmed by the sun most of the day and produces the earliest barley crop in Jerusalem. In the years when the barley crop didn’t ripen in time for the omer offering, the barley was brought from elsewhere as far away as Shechem (ibid. pp. 93–94). Other grain crops such as wheat and oats that were used in the temple service were cultivated in the Kidron Valley and other valleys in the area as well (ibid., p. 161).

The Kidron Valley was also used as a dump for dead bodies and ashes (Jer 31:40; ibid. p. 93).

2 Samuel 16

2 Samuel 16:22, All Israel. (Also see notes at Zech 14:2.)All is the Hebrew word (kol, kal/לכ) depending on grammatical construction and context can mean “all, every, any, whole, none, the whole of something, all kinds of, all sorts of, a great variety of” according to The TWOT. In this case, clearly, every single person in the entire country of Israel did not watch Absalom have sex with his father’s concubines. All Israel is Hebraic hyperbole meaning “all Israel that was there and saw it.” There are many other examples in the Scriptures where all doesn’t mean all in the sense we mean it in English. For example,

See Ezra 10:5 cp. 8:25 where “all Israel” means “all/ those of Israel who were present.” In this case, only representatives from the southern kingdom primarily comprised of the tribes of Judah and Levi were present. This we know for Ezra lists those who returned from Babylon in chapter two.

Matthew 3:5 records that “all Judaea” went out to see Yeshua. If all is to be taken literally, then every man, woman and child (including the old, infirm and crippled) went out to see Yeshua. This is impossible. This is another example of a hebraism meaning “all those that were present.”

In Romans 11:26, Paul states that “all Israel will be saved.” Unless one believes in the concept of universal salvation where even the devil will be saved, this cannot mean that every Israelite who has ever lived will be saved. Paul’s statement is taken to mean, “all those who will be saved, will be saved.”

2 Samuel 18

2 Samuel 18:18, A pillar [monument].In the Kidron Valley at the base of the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, there is a 47-foot tall rock monument known as Absalom’s Tomb or Pillar. Tradition says that this was the tomb of Absalom, though modern scholars date the tomb only to the first century. In 2003, a fourth-century inscription in ancient Greek letters in the tomb’s interior was deciphered, which reads, “This is the tomb of Zachariah, the martyr, the holy priest, the father of John.” This tomb is to be distinguished from the Tomb of Zachariah the son of Johoiada also in the Kidron Valley near the Garden of Gethsemane at the base of the Mount of Olives. (See note at Matt 23:35.)

2 Samuel 21

2 Samuel 21:1–14, David avenges the Gibeonites.This story lends credence to the concept of generational curses. In this case, Saul failed keep Joshua’s vow to the Gibeonites to protect and to preserve them when he killed some of them. Years later, YVHH brings a famine on the nation of Israel, which David, somehow, links back to Saul’s sin as its cause. David repents to the Gibeonites for Saul’s sin, makes restitution and YHVH blesses Israel and the famine ceases. One can only wonder how many of Elohim’s judgments our nation has brought upon itself for failing to acknowledge various national sins such as abortion, the legalization and endorsement of homosexuality and other perverse lifestyles along with homosexual “marriages,” and other vile activities our government has perpetrated against its own citizens and those of other countries for the advancement of its Babylon the Great New World Order agendas for the purposes of power and money.


The Biblical Feasts, Yeshua the Sun of Righteousness and the Calendar

In Genesis chapter one when Elohim created the sun and moon, he called the former “the greater light” and the latter “the lesser light” (Gen 1:16). The former rules the day and the lesser rules the night (ibib.). This is prophetic of the role of Yeshua and the saints in the world. 

Yeshua the Messiah is the Light of the world (John 1:6–9; 8:12; 9:5) or the Sun of Righteousness (Mal 4:2) or the Greater Light to show man the path of spiritual light in the darkness of this world. The saints are like the moon or the lesser light that reflects the light of the sun or the greater light into the darkness of this world. Yeshua shines his spiritual light onto his disciples who then take that light and evangelize those lost in spiritual darkness with the message of the gospel. This is the great commission!

The biblical feasts are calculated based on the lunations of the moon. The seven biblical holidays speak of YHVH’s plan of salvation to show man the way to Yeshua who is the Greater Spiritual Light as represented by the sun. The feasts are like a tract or sermon by which the saints preach the gospel message of salvation to the world. The saints as the lesser light reflecting the message of salvation through Yeshua the Greater Light into the darkness of this world through their adherence to the biblical feasts. This is one reason why the moon—the lesser light—is so pivotal to YHVH’s calendar and feasts. 

The traditional calendar currently used by the non-believing, rabbinic Jews is off; it’s not in accordance with the moon though the Jews erroneously purport it to be. At the same time, they’re not bringing the gospel message of Yeshua to the world—only the doctrines of men and men’s traditions. Their whole message is askew and fails to reflect the Greater Light of Yeshua.

Similarly, the mainstream church tries to preach the gospel, but without understanding the moon, feasts and biblical calendar their message of the gospel is only a partial one and is also off spiritually.

A time may come in the future when the calendar and feasts will go strictly off the sun and not the moon. This may occur when there is a new heaven and a new earth when Yeshua is ruling on this earth and he will be the only Light of the world. That time isn’t yet, though, for it’s still the saints’ job as the lesser light to be like the moon to reflect the truth of Yeshua, the Greater Light, to this world through a lunar-based calendar upon which the biblical feasts are based.


What Is Holy and What Is Not…Who Determines It?

Some things are holy and some things are not.

Leviticus 8:12, Anointing oil … consecrates [Heb. kadash]. 

The Hebrew word kadash signifies the state of something that belongs to the realm of the sacred, and which is set-apart for divine use and has been separated from the sphere of the secular, common or profane. The Bible often uses the term holy (meaning “set-apart”) to signify this state of being. The word of Elohim designate many things as set-apart:

  • The ground upon which YHVH is standing (Exod 3:5; Josh 5:15)
  • The people of Israel (Exod 19:6; Deut 14:21; 26:19)
  • The Sabbath (Exod 16:23; 20:8)
  • The Tabernacle of Moses (Exod 26:33)
  • The garments worn by the high priest (Exod 28:2)
  • The altar of sacrifice (Exod 40:10)
  • The offerings made on the altar (Lev 6:18)
  • YHVH’s feast days (Lev 23:2)
  • The camp of Israel (Deut 23:14)
  • Heaven as the abode of Elohim (Deut 26:15)
  • YHVH Elohim (Job 6:10; Pss 22:3; 78:4; 99:5)
  • Zion and Jerusalem (Ps 2:6; Matt 27:53; Rev 22:19)
  • The Spirit of Elohim (Matt 1:20)
  • The angels (Matt 25:31)
  • The servants of Elohim (Mark 6:20)
  • The name of YHVH (Luke 1:49)
  • Yeshua (Acts 2:27; 3:14)
  • YHVH’s prophets (Acts 3:21)
  • The saints (1 Pet 2:9; Rev 22:11)
  • The Torah (2 Pet 3:21) 

The people, times and items listed on this listed are holy because Elohim has designated them as such. Only Elohim has the power and authority to determine what is holy and what is not. Just because men and religious institutions designate or sanctify something as being holy or set apart to Elohim doesn’t mean that it is. The proclamations of men stating that something is holy may or may not agree with Elohim and his Word as to what is holy. If it doesn’t, then it is not holy regardless of the labels that men may put on it. Examples of this would be manmade holidays and times of worship, places and items. Men’s attempt to elevated something that is otherwise of the world, the flesh or the devil to a state of supposed holiness is nothing more than a ruse to fool people into thinking that something is what it is not. Usually behind these efforts on the part of men to attempt to delude the unwary and unsuspecting masses is the quest for money, power and fame. As Paul notes in 2 Corinthians 11:13–15, there are many religious deceivers who appropriate to themselves religious titles, but who, in reality, are tools of Satan, the arch-deceiver who transforms himself into an angel of light. The devil and his humans agents are masters at counterfeiting Elohim’s truth and taking that which is holy and profaning or polluting it, again usually for money, power and fame.

Here is a short list of things that the Bible doesn’t designate as holy, but some people do. 

  • The holy cross
  • Holy water
  • Mary, the holy mother of Yeshua
  • Sunday
  • Christian holidays 
  • The holy trinity
  • The holy sepulchre of Christ
  • Holy relics
  • The Vatican (i.e. the Holy See)
  • The Pope (i.e. the holy father)
  • Holy Week
  • Holy mass
  • Holy cities (e.g. Rome, Mecca, Medina)
  • The holy grail
  • Holy moly
  • Holy guacamole
  • Holy cow

And the list goes on of the things that humans have designated as holy but aren’t holy according to Elohim.

YHVH’s people must learn to make a difference between that which he designates as being kadash (holy) andthat which is profane (Lev 10:10; Ezek 44:23). In order to do this, one must know what YHVH defines as set-apart in his Written Word and then align their thinking and lifestyle with that. Again, what the Bible calls holy and what religious call holy may or may not be in agreement.

The act of consecrating someone (or something, e.g. Exod 30:26), as occurs in Leviticus 8:12, often involves the ritual of pouring olive oil on them to signify their being set-apart for a special work or service. This is called anointing (see Exod 28:41; 29:7; 1 Sam 16:12; 1 Kgs 1:34; Isa 61:1; 2 Cor 1:21). 

Yeshua’s title is Messiah (Heb. Mashiach) literally meaning, “one who is anointed, smeared or consecrated with (olive) oil.” The English word Christ derives from the Greek word Christos, which is the Greek equivalent of the Hebrew word mashhiach. In biblical thought, the Messiah would be One coming from heaven who would possess a super-anointing of the Spirit of Elohim (Isa 11:1–10; 42:1–21; 61:1–3; John 3:34) to accomplish the purposes of Elohim on earth.

Have you placed your trusting faith in Yeshua the Messiah, the Anointed One from heaven? He is the only one who can take away the shame, guilt and penalty of your sin, and the only one who defeated death and the grave and can lead you past the veil of death and into immortality.


Are Humans Created Equal?

Exodus 30:15, Rich…poor. 

This passage teaches the equality of all believers. In YHVH’s eyes, each redeemed Israelite saints are equal. To the Creator of all things and who owns everything, no one is worth more than a half-shekel, and no one is worth less than a half shekel. The rich aren’t better than the poor and vice versa. This is also the moral of Yeshua’s Parable of Lazurus and the Rich Man (Luke 16:19–21). Contrary to what many Christians have been taught, this parable isn’t a doctrinal statement about the state of the dead and the afterlife. To many people, including the rich Scribes and Pharisees of Yeshua’s day, material success denotes superiority and even divine favor. The Bible dispels this false notion. YHVH looks at the heart and character of a person and the righteous fruits of their lives, and not at the outward, physical trappings—the proverbial cover of the book. The Scriptures address this issue in several places:

Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment. (John 7:24)

A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. (Matt 7:19–20)

But YHVH said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for YHVH seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but YHVH looketh on the heart. (1 Sam 16:7)

Now the Torah and the rest of the Scriptures teach that all the saints are equal. But what about the rest of humanity? Are all humans created equal?

There are many ways to look at this equality issue. But let’s see what the Bible teaches.

The Bible states in several places that all humans are created in the image of Elohim. This implies equality among all humans.

The Bible also states that all humans are sinners, that all deserve death and that none are righteous of themselves. This also implies equality.

The Bible states that Elohim so loved all the world that he sent his Son to die for all humanity. This implies equality among humans.

The Bible also state that Elohim loved us while we were still sinners. This implies equality among all humans.

Elohim desires all humans to be saved. This also implies equality among humans.

The Bible furthermore states that Elohim isn’t a respecter of persons. This implies equality among humans.

The Bible teaches that there is one Torah-law standard of righteousness for all people—Israelites and non-Israelites. This implies equality.

Moreover, the Bible states that Elohim will judge all humans by that law. All humans will come before his judgment seat. Thus all are equal before the law and before the Judge of the universe.

Conversely, there is no question that the Bible teaches that Elohim favors those who love and serve him. He favors them with a special love and enters into a personal relationship with them. He blesses then in a special way (salvation, healing, answered prayers, special protection, guidance, wisdom the Set-Apart Spirit, etc.) and eventually will reward them with eternal life, glorification and inclusion into his eternal kingdom as his adopted children. So in this sense, Elohim starts out loving and treating everyone equally, but those who choose to love and obey him he favors them and extends his grace to them. In this case, not everyone is treated equally. But this is not based on favoritism on YHVH’s part, but upon the choices that humans make with regard to his initial equal treatment of all. In the end, all humans will reap what they sow. If they obey Elohim they will be blessed with immortality. If they disobey him, with eternal death.

Even though all humans are created equal by Elohim and will stand equal before him, the Bible in no way promotes the idea of economic equality among humans as socialism advocates. But this is another discussion for another time.


Thank you for your comments and pushback!

I want to take this opportunity to thank  all  who have commented on this forum in the last few days, whether they have agreed or disagreed with me, regarding the comments I made on several news articles I recently posted on this blog.

It is critically important that we as Bible believers address the issues pertaining to the current events (e.g. immigration, border walls, abortion, morality) happening in our society, and do so from a logical and reason-based biblical perspective.

On many of these issues, I have waited for weeks or even months to make public comment, while, at the same time, seeking the Father’s heart based on his Written Word, the Bible, as to what my response should be.

When I have finally sensed a release in my spirit to post my views, at the same time, I expected and welcomed civil and respectful pushback from my readers. This is the proverbial iron sharpening iron process about which the book of Proverbs speaks. This is not only constructive but appreciated, and, hopefully, will serve to bring us all more in line with biblical truth, thus helping to unify us in the face of opposition from an ungodly, neo-Baalistic world.

It’s imperative that the saints refine their understandings of and responses to the current issues facing our society in light of biblical truth. This is how we will be salt and light to the ungodly world. This can be accomplished by giving those around us a more biblical perspective on these current issues as we point them to the eternal values of divinely revealed biblical truth, as opposed to the society’s general approach of blowing with the winds of situational ethics or moral relativism where the ends justify the means and immutable truth is nowhere to be found, and is even considered a passé concept and not even open for discussion.

As followers of Yeshua and his word, we must discuss these issues, and, behind the scenes out of the public view, we must work out what our responses will be to society’s problems, and determine how to bring the light of biblical truth to bear on the problems facing us. This is one way the gospel is preached and the kingdom of Elohim is expanded.


The Importance of Using the Biblical Names of Elohim

Exodus 3:14–15, I AM THAT I AM. The name YHVH is Elohim’s memorial name forever. It reflects that fact that he is; that he is undefinable in human terms, and that he has always existed. This is the name by which he is to be remembered (not forgotten as is the case with the ineffable name concept of the rabbinic Jews whereby the names of deity are forbidden to be used).

The Scriptures clearly teach us that YHVH wants his people to use his Hebrew names and titles (e.g. YHVH, Yah, El, Elohim, Adonai and Yeshua). If not, than why is “YHVH,” the personal name of the biblical deity, found in the Tanakh (or Old Testament) almost 7000 times?

Despite the proliferation of the name YHVH in the Bible, men are not to use his name carelessly as the third commandments teaches us (Exod 20:7).

The problem is that YHVH’s people have forgotten YHVH’s Hebrew names and worshipped pagan gods instead (Ps 44:20; Jer 23:27). Interesting, it’s a fact that most of our common English substitutes for the Hebrew names of Elohim derive from the names of pagan deities (e.g. God, Lord, Holy, Christ, Jesus). At the same time, the Scriptures prophesy that YHVH’s name will be restored and used again (Jer 23:6; 31:23; Ezek 39:7).

Interestingly, Satan’s name has never been changed down through the millennia from one language to another. The names of significant Hebrew biblical personalities along with Greek and Roman notable historical figures remain essentially unchanged to our day. However, the Hebrew names of Elohim and his Messiah not only have been changed, but often masked under the names of pre-exisiting pagan deities. Doesn’t this sound like a Continue reading


Building a Foundation Over a Black Hole…

I received this email today, and decided to share it with you. The writer succinctly expresses one of the main purposes of our ministry.

I also want to say thank you for the opportunity you give others to ask you questions and for all the information you provide!!! In the very beginning when I started to see that scriptures say something else than we were being taught I lost the “foundation” and underneath me was a big black hole. It was a very difficult time. While searching for the truth I found your video on YouTube on the book of romans and ever since I have gotten so much useful and valuable information from Hoshana Rabbah and it has helped me to slowly build up a new ground under my feet – this time a stable one. I just wanted you to know what a huge blessing it is and I thank our Father for it! — From KR
