… a house of repentance … a house of return …
we have become

“An Assembly of YHVH (Yahweh)”

קהילת יהוה

Study the word

Some years ago, the Spirit of the Lord spoke very clearly to me saying, “The ‘church’ must become unto Me as ‘Beit T’shuvah’, a house of repentance, a house of return.  You must become as ‘baal t'shuvah’”.

What did the Holy Spirit mean?

The Spirit of God asked me, “Where are the ‘Christian’ Haredim?

What did He mean?

The Spirit of God asked me again, “Where are the ‘Christian’ Hasidim?

As the Holy Spirit directed me to the prophet Isaiah, a word picture began to emerge.

1 “Thus says the LORD [YHVH]: ‘Heaven [is] My throne, and earth [is] My footstool. Where [is] the house that you will build Me? And where [is] the place of My rest? 2 For all those [things] My hand has made, and all those [things] exist,’ says the LORD [YHVH]. ‘But on this [one] will I look: on [him who is] poor and of a contrite spirit, and who trembles at My word.’” [Isaiah 66:1-2 NKJV]

5 “Hear the word of the LORD [YHVH], you who tremble at His word: your brethren who hated you, who cast you out for My name's sake, said, ‘Let the LORD [YHVH]be glorified, that we may see your joy. But they shall be ashamed.’” [Isaiah 66:5 NKJV]

Strong’s #H2730 is חָרֵד. It means to “tremble, to be fearful, to be afraid.”

Strong’s #H2623 is חָסִיד. It means to be “faithful, kind, godly, pious or a holy one.”  To be a “holy one” means to be separated out to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, YHVH or Yahweh.

The Spirit of the Lord was asking me, “Where are the Christians who fear my word, who are separated out to me, YHVH (Yahweh)?” The Spirit of God was not and isn’t asking Gentiles to convert to Hasidic Judaism. They get their name from being separated out to YHVH (Yahweh). The Haredi sects get their name because of their reverence for the written word, “trembling at the word.”

It is written, “14 ‘…for you shall worship no other god, for the LORD [YHVH], whose name [is] Jealous, [is] a jealous God’” [Exodus 34:14 NKJV]

YHVH (Yahweh) is a jealous God. 

YHVH (Yahweh) is, “27 ‘Behold, I [am] the LORD [YHVH], the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?’” [Jeremiah 32:27 NKJV]

YHVH (Yahweh) is the God of all flesh … of all humanity … not just the God of the Hebrews, or the God of Israel but the God of all. Why don’t we worship Him with understanding?

We need to return to Him … we need to שׁוּב “shub,” or return. Returning to Yah almost always requires repentance because we have not been following His ways.

“Baal T’shuvah” translates as “master of return or repentance.” The “church” must master the art of repentance and return to YHVH (Yahweh).

4 “Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?” [Romans 2:4 NKJV]

10 “For godly sorrow produces repentance [leading] to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.” [2 Corinthians 7:10 NKJV]

Again, the Spirit of the Lord asked me, or directed me to, “Build me a tent of meeting, a tabernacle of meeting where I might meet with you as I met with my servant Moses to separate the holy from the profane. Build me a Jewish church and a Christian synagogue.”

I asked Him, “How Lord?”

He responded, “One brick (stone) at a time.”

4 “Coming to Him [as to] a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God [and] precious, 5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” [1 Peter 2:4-5 NKJV]

1 “A Song of Ascents. Of Solomon. Unless the LORD [YHVH] builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the LORD [YHVH] guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.” [Psalm 127:1 NKJV]

The house that YHVH (Yahweh) is building out of living stones, is one where the stones recognize Jesus of Nazareth as YHVH (Yahweh) of Nazareth saving His people from their sins. 

Recognizing Jesus as YHVH (Yahweh) is the sovereign work of the Spirit of the Lord YHVH (Yahweh),

3 “Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord [YHVH or Yahweh] except by the Holy Spirit.” [1 Corinthians 12:3 NKJV]

27 “As for you, the anointing [Holy Spirit] which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing [Holy Spirit] teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.” [1John 2:27 NASB]

The Spirit of the Lord (YHVH or Yahweh) is a very capable Rabbi. Are you willing to be taught by God?

13 “All your children [shall be] taught by the LORD [YHVH], and great [shall be] the peace of your children.” [Isaiah 54:13 NKJV]

13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide [is] the gate and broad [is] the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow [is] the gate and difficult [is] the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” [Matthew 7:13-14 NKJV]

23 “Then one said to Him, ‘Lord, are there few who are saved?’ And He said to them, 24 ‘Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.’” [Luke 13:23-24 NKJV]

A student once asked the Lubavitcher Rebbe, “What is a rebbe good for?” “I can’t speak about myself,” answered the Rebbe, “but I can tell you about my rebbe, my father-in-law, the Previous Rebbe. My rebbe was a geologist of the soul. You see, there are so many treasurers in the earth: gold, silver, diamonds, etc. But if you don’t know where to dig, you’ll only find dirt, rocks, and mud. The rebbe can tell you where to dig, and what to dig for, but the digging you must do yourself.”
