|Yahowah IS 1: "One God" Means the Creator YHWH is a Singular Being, One Person having One Intellect, The only Elohim of Israel, The Father, who resurrected 'the Yahoshua', the promised Messiah.|
The New Covenant is prophesied in Jeremiah 31:31-34. It is the Refreshing and Enhancing of the Original Covenant of the Exodus with Israel.
The New Covenant is what was there before, plus some new administrations, gifts, promises, and cleanliness through the Melchizedek Priesthood.
Two Tassels Ministry: One Tassel to remember the Torah Covenant and One Tassel to remember the Refreshed Covenant.
We are to grow into a loving and gracious life-style consistent with both Covenants.
Many understand that today there are two primary Covenants, the one through Moses and the second through Yahoshua (in Aramaic, in Greek 'Ieesous', in English 'Jesus'). In Numbers 15:37 - 41 Yahowah (in Aramaic, Hebrew-English 'YHWH', Hebrew-German 'YHVH') the Creator commands His people to wear tassels in order to remember His teachings, and to not disobey His commands. Today His teachings (Torah) and commands include the New (Refreshed and Improved) Covenant concepts and instructions too. Not only are the Torah Covenant teachings and commands imprinted on our hearts, so that we willingly do them (Jeremiah 31:33), we also now have additional teachings and commands, probing even deeper into our very motives and inner conscience.
What this means is that today we need Two Tassels to represent the Two Primary Covenants with the House of Israel. These Two Tassels remind us of all of His teachings, in both Covenants, and all of His commands, in both Covenants. In John 4:24 we are told to worship The Father "in spirit" and "in truth". From the Greek, these words are better translated as 'In Spirit-fullness' and 'In Truth-fullness'.
Today, we need Two Tassels to remember that we worship The Creator YHWH, through the doorway forged by His resurrected and exalted Son Yahoshua, in two ways:
These concepts of "Truth-fullness" and "Spiritual-fullness" are the two primary teachings of Yahowah (YHWH), taught by both the Hebrew and the Greek Texts, taught in both Covenants, taught by both Prophets, Moses and Yahoshua.
The first primary covenant is through the first Prophet Moses:
The Torah Covenant gives YandY's Community the physical instructions of Community life. Most of these instructions are directed towards the physical lifestyle within the righteous Community. In the ancient cultures a person's physical lifestyle included their thinking (mental) processes too. How you treated your neighbors included how you thought about them too. These instructions are "The Truth-fullness" we are to live by. These teachings and commands give us the righteous way of living within His Holy Community, and how we are to work together with our neighbors.
The second primary covenant is through the second Prophet Yahoshua, the resurrected, exalted, and only Begotten Son of YHWH (Yahowah):
The second primary covenant gives YandY's Community the internalized instructions, that are directed towards our deeper motives and conscience. These instructions govern our emotional lifestyles within the righteous Community. This is "The Spirit-fullness" we are to live by, right down to our inner-most being. "The Spirit-fullness" is about what we are, as self-aware individuals having our own conscience, personality, and character. These teachings and commands give us the even more righteous way of living in His Holy Community, focusing on our very thoughts (psyche) as we work together with our family and neighbors.
The second covenant has a very significant enhancement.
We stand before Yahowah "Clean" through the "Melchizedek Priesthood".
In order to include the gentiles, and to have righteous congregations outside of Judea (without priests, sacrifices, and a Temple), those Laws dealing with staying "Clean" and purification have to be administered differently. Essentially, a change in Law had to occur.
This is exactly what Hebrews 7:11-17 says. Yahoshua is our High Priest in a different priesthood, the Melchizedek Priesthood. The list of Laws dealing with purification and getting back into right-standing with Yahowah (YHWH) have been superseded by the provisions of the Melchizedek Priesthood. That is, different rules for "being Clean" now apply.
This path to being "Clean" is why the Holy Spirit can dwell inside of us.
This path to being "Clean" is why we can approach the very Throne of YHWH, and ask for things.
We enter the congregation; we engage in direct communication (prayer) with the Father, and stand "Clean", because of our belief in the exalted Yahoshua (Jesus) the Messiah, through the provisions of the Melchizedek Priesthood. And at the same time, we practice righteousness by obeying the list of Laws which define what sin is in the first place.
Please read Law Versus Grace (PDF, clarified in 2 pages).
Thus, we are no longer justified (stand "Clean" again) by the works of the Law, that list of Laws dealing with ritual purification. We are now justified through the provisions of a better priesthood, the Melchizedek Priesthood. But this "Grace" has nothing to do with tossing out the list of Laws telling us what sin is in the first place. "What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid." (Romans 6:1, Hebrews 10:26). Grace is not a license to sin.
The New Covenant is an enhancement of the previous Covenant. The New Covenant is what was there before, plus some new administrations, gifts, promises, and cleanliness through the Melchizedek Priesthood. The Torah Covenant is not tossed, it is enhanced.
The End Time Communities of YandY will be the gathering of those Saints which live by both of the two primary Covenants. The Communities of YandY will know what it takes to work and to live together in harmony, as good families and neighbors.
"Hearing and Doing": is the daily pursuit towards our Internalization of all the Teachings of Yahowah and His Son Yahoshua (in both Covenants).
Together we will make a much bigger difference.
You can make a difference, but to do so you have to do something.
