Genesis 1:1-6:8

In the beginning Elohim created hashomayim (the heavens, Himel) and haaretz (the earth).

And the earth was tohu vavohu (without form, and void); and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Ruach Elohim was hovering upon the face of the waters.

And Elohim said, Let there be light: and there was light  

 

Absolute Knowledge Presents

Moedim/Appointed Times

Some of our people believe that the Moedim are done away with; just as the Torah along with all the divine decrees and rulings.  Many say, “We can’t keep them, because we don’t have the sacrifices, offerings, and the priesthood to officiate them for us”.  The Moedim is defined as “The Appointed Times” outlined in the Torah given by the Creator to His people to meet with Him at specific times during the weeks, months, and years- beginning with Shabbats, Rosh Chodesh, Spring, Summer, and Fall festivals including the Day of Atonement known as Yom Kippur.  These weekly, monthly, and yearly appointments also known as “Set Apart Events or Meetings” have become points of contention among our people.  More specifically, times of confusion, division, and debate contribute to our inability to see our need to gather together while in our exile. Our designation, as “The Divine and Separated People” from among  Nations, demands a continual seeking of Hebraic knowledge and cultural understanding of the Moedim.  Within the word  MO-ED-IM, the Hebrew letters give us several clues and indicators as to how we should truly understand these historical events.  Let’s deal with the first Hebrew letter of the word Moedim, the letter “Mem” transliterated as “M” (English with no meaning or significance). The cultural meaning of our letter “Mem” has to do with “water” and the idea of taking action- “from”… going back and forth;  from one location to another to get water.  The next letter “O” (no significance or meaning by itself) is recognized as the Hebrew letter “Waw”, which represents a “tent peg” or “hook” to “join” or “connect” thereby making the tent or dwelling ”firm and established”.  The third Hebrew letter is called “Ayin” which represents the “eye”- meaning to “see”, “visual observation” and “knowledge”, as one who receives “knowledge and experience” through what he or she sees through their eyes; by the way, which happens to be one of the most powerful of all five senses we possess as human beings.   Next, the Hebrew letter “Dalet”  is transliterated as “D” in English (which has no actual meaning)  Hebraically, this letter represents a “tent door”, the action of  “opening and closing”- “back and forth”. Finally, we have the suffix ending of “im” meaning…. many or more than one (masculine plural).  So what does all this mean?  Well, when you look at the Hebraic cultural significance of each of the letters and combine them into the word Moedim, you will quickly see that the Appointed Times known as Moedim have to do with going “back and forth” and “to be connected” repeatedly to the Tent of Meeting or Dwelling place to receive knowledge. We will only truly understand the meanings of the Moedim by taking some form of action; gaining knowledge and constantly reminding ourselves and our children of what the Creator has done for us.  While in exile, there are a variety of opinions as to how one should keep or observe them.  Some choose verbal acknowledgment, while others use the elements of the historical accounts such as cooking a lamb, or goat, removing leaven from their homes, blowing shofars, and setting up tents and decorations, either way, there is some form of remembrance.  I would be ashamed if I were to forget to mention to you the root of the word Moedim and what it represents.  The root-like every plant, shrub, and tree is the foundation and strength of its very existence.  The Hebrew root word “ED” (ayd) means to “see the door”.  What door? Answer:  The door of The Tent of Meeting.  The children of Y’srael are commanded to “observe’ or “keep” these Appointed Times (Moedim) which cause so many of us frustration and anxiety during the year while completing our punishment in exile.  Yet there is a solution found within the pages of the Torah- just one word which can help alleviate some of our discomfort-the word is called “Shamar” which means to “guard” unlike the western-minded translators who told us to observe or keep. The “stem” of any word is the translation of the “root”(which can be parsed in several ways).  If the “root ” is translated improperly, you will not receive the correct understanding of the word. Our Oppressor has disabled us through his language and provided his cultural understanding of words and definitions, therefore causing confusion, frustration, and exhaustion.   While given the charge to guard these Set Apart Meetings- Appointments – Events- Celebrations – Festivals and Gatherings (Moedim) the children of Y’srael became “Witnesses”  using all five (5) senses, (1) see (2) hear, (3) touch, (4) taste and (5) smell; thus making them into bonafide witnesses.  As a descendant of the children of Y’srael, we have an obligation to guard these Appointed Times (Moedim)’ ‘. We should give testimony as our ancestors did to the “Existence” of the True and Living Power (Elohim) YHWH by commemorating His Appointed Times (Moedim) that are governed by His creation of the Sun, Moon, and stars (the great lights designated for the Moedim- see Genesis 1:14) giving testimony themselves.    In conclusion, as your brother [Achi’ka] I’m writing this article to encourage and inspire our people to  “guard” and give your “testimony” to the Moedim.  Our Power (Elohim) YHWH has done great and awesome things for our ancestors and He intends to do great and terrible things for us as well.  Remember, how He has killed the firstborn of Mitzrayim of all the male humans and animals (Pesach) Remember we left in hurry, with no time to leaven our bread (Feast of Matzah)  Remember, that He has declared to our prophet Yirmeyahu that we are His (First-Fruits) and have given the land with (First-Fruits) to offer to Him as a reminder of what He had promised to our fathers Avraham, Yitschak, and Ya’aqov   Remember, He gave us the Torah (Shavaoth)   Remember that  He continuously heralds us with the sound of the trumpet to proclaim His Highly Set Apart  Days of Awe (Yom Teruah) Don’t forget that He forgave the “Great Sin” of the Golden Calf (Yom Kippur) Always be reminded that He Tabernacled among His people in the wilderness for forty years (Sukkot) and they lacked nothing.  We’re constantly reminded every Shabbat (without the required offerings) of His feeding our ancestors every day for six days and receiving a double portion of manna. Remember the Shabbat- it’s a sign of our being Set -Apart unto Him  We give Him praise and appreciation because He established our nation on the first day of the month of Abib as the beginning of months to us (Rosh Chodesh). Let’s always remember and never forget what He has done for our ancestors and constantly remind ourselves what He has promised to do for us.  Hallu- YAH! Hallu-YAH! Hallu-YAH!

Rulers of the World Can’t Hide from Judgment Elder Enos Ben Levi

There is only one who can do all things; HIS name is YHWH the maker of worlds and everything that goes into them.  When HE wants people to be placed in a land or nation that they have never heard of, HE can make it happen with a blink of an eye. That’s an example of some of His power

A WORD FROM OUR ELDER By Elder Benyaminyahu Yisrae

 Genesis 15: 13-15: “And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance” 

The Prophecy Of The Byword & The Breath Of Life

 There are many who believe the Most High’s Judgment (as prophesied in the curses of Deuteronomy) so heavily imprinted upon the backs of those who descend from the Transatlantic Slave Trade…to pursue any further discussion about who is the true seed of Abraham is like interrogating a three years old with sticky fingers–the wrapper still in his hands– on who ate the candy?  On the other end of the spectrum, many people of the Balfour Agreement who claim the heritage of the descendants of Abraham using the might of all their worldly power have turned to censorship, labeling our people’s awakening to our true heritage as hate speech, re-stuffing the bit in our mouths, chaining our faces before the world, claiming the language of our assertions untenable before the details (which are either all historical or in the Torah and Testimonies of the Prophets) are even heard.

The Burden Of Babylon By Wife AzanYah

Maybe you can recall your childhood, overhearing an adult conversation, perhaps your mother going on about the ill feeling when the rabbit got the gun or the bill arriving in the mail just in time to catch a thiefor one of the many retribution metaphors you heard spilling over a conversation not meant for your ears but even more importantly you understood because rabbits couldn’t hold guns nor mail know when to arrive just in time to catch a liar…for Justice to be realized matters had to move from the natural (or the realm of men) to the Supernatural? So funny how we understood as children (with barely a Sunday School lesson under our belt) that all Judgment and revenge belonged to YHWH and not only would HE have the final say but every man would eventually answer to HIS Maker!

YAH JUDGMENTS: PAST PRESENT AND FUTURE Dr. Debra Franklin

YHWH Eloheim is the great supreme “Judge of all the earth” (Genesis 18:25). As the Creator of the universe, he has the unqualified right to judge Israel for their sinful unrighteous behavior, which consists of not adhering to His holy commandments, testaments, and judgments given to Moses on Mt Sanai. This is of great importance because HE made a covenant with the patriarch Abraham “Go from your country and your kindred to a land that I will show you…I will bless those that bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you shall all the nations of the earth be blessed” (Genisis12:1-3).  Therefore, out of respect to YHWH, we as a people should have honored and respected the covenant given to our forefathers.
