A portion of text from the DVD presentation:






  Our objectives are to be the same as those of Yahusha, to ultimately reunite Yahudah and Yisrael.  When we wrestle and vex one another over interpretations, we keep our division rather than overcome it. 

1Co 13:4:  “Love is patient, is kind, love does not envy, love does not boast, is not puffed up . . .”


1Jn 3:10-15:  “In this the children of Elohim and the children of the devil are manifest: Everyone not doing righteousness is not of Elohim, neither the one not loving his brother.  Because this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another, not as Qayin who was of the wicked one and killed his brother. And why did he kill him? Because his works were wicked but those of his brother were righteous.

Do not marvel, my brothers, if the world hates you.

We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brothers. The one not loving his brother stays in death.

Everyone hating his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has everlasting life staying in him.”


Gal 5:14, 15:  “For the entire Torah is completed in one word, in this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’

And if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another!”


  There will always be those who are “fruit-inspectors”, not seeking the lost, but disturbing all those who are attempting to warn and instruct the lost.  We have to endure persecution from our own brothers and sisters, and in the past it often meant death.  We are to love one another, never judge, and remember that if they are not against Yahusha, do not forbid them:


Mar 9:38-40:  “And Yoḥanan said to Him, ‘Teacher, we saw someone, who does not follow us, casting out demons in Your Name, and we forbade him because he does not follow us.’

And Yahusha said, ‘Do not forbid him, for no one who works a miracle in My Name is able to readily speak evil of Me.

For he who is not against us is for us.’”


  Yahusha will judge each of us, and if there is any sin being committed by one of us, we easily go to the book/chapter/verse that deals with the issue directly to correct and rebuke our brother or sister in error.  If we don’t use the Scriptures but instead cast our private interpretations upon one another based on ideas that have never been found in any place or time before, then things will quickly spin completely out of control.  People have become so perverted that some believe the FULL MOON is the new moon.  Some have to dress as people did 3000 years ago to feel set-apart.  Some don’t even know for sure when a “day” begins and ends.  But, being mean or judgmental toward one another is never going to solve any differences.    


  When doctrinal divisions occur, it is usually a small number of people who focus on one issue such as the transliteration of the Name, or the lunar observation for festivals.  The lunar setting of the weekly Sabbaths came out of nowhere, and certainly not Yahuah’s Word;  and yet it has continued to grow and divide the body of Yahusha.  The body of Yahusha speaks His Truth, His Words, and yet some will not hear His Words.  He is ultimately going to reunite Yahudah and Yisrael, and there is no way some of these new teachings that have never existed will be accepted by the older brother.  We have much to learn from Yahudah, not the other way around.  It’s only the “yeast” we must beware of.  We lead by example, not as slave-masters:


1Pe 5:1-10:   “Therefore, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Messiah, and also a sharer of the esteem that is to be revealed, I appeal to the elders among you:

Shepherd the flock of Elohim which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but voluntarily, not out of greed for filthy gain, but eagerly, neither as being masters over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.

And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you shall receive the never-fading crown of esteem.

In the same way, you younger ones, be subject to elders. And gird yourselves with humility toward one another, for “Elohim resists the proud, but gives favor to the humble.”

Humble yourselves, then, under the mighty hand of Elohim, so that He exalts you in due time,

casting all your worry upon Him, for He is concerned about you.

Be sober, watch, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

Resist him, firm in the belief, knowing that the same hardships are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.

And the Elohim of all favor, who called you to His everlasting esteem by Messiah Yahusha, after you have suffered a while, Himself perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.”


Isa 11:11-13:  “And it shall be in that day that Yahuah sets His hand again a second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left, from Ashshur and from Mitsrayim, from Pathros and from Kush, from Ěylam and from Shinʽar, from Ḥamath and from the islands of the sea.

And He shall raise a banner for the nations, and gather the outcasts of Yisra’ĕl, and assemble the dispersed of Yahuḏah from the four corners of the earth.

And the envy of Ephrayim shall turn aside, and the adversaries of Yahuḏah be cut off. Ephrayim shall not envy Yahuḏah, and Yahuḏah not trouble Ephrayim.”

About the sunrise to sunrise idea;   I’ve looked at all the claims and interpretations closely, and the “clincher” for many is the claim that the wrong pattern was “brought back from Babylon” by the few returning Yahudim.  This argument may sound convincing at first, but remember that most of the population was not taken away, but resided in dozens of colonies all around the Mediterranean, and to the far south in Ethiopia.  The remote Yisraelites never changed anything about the way a day begins and ends, and they also never became influenced by the various “sects” and their many diverse patterns of guarding the Torah.  The Ethiopians were never subjected to any “Talmud” or “Oral Law”.  The idea that any error could collide with the older original truth and not be recorded as a conflict at any time is perhaps the biggest oversight that could be made. 


The text of Torah that clearly declares how a “day” begins and ends is at Bereshith chapter 1, and if we didn’t understand that clearly then Wayyiqra 11:27 and Wayyiqra 23:32 nails it down.  If even these are questionable, then there is this one found at NehemYah 13, written at the time of the returning Yahudim from Babylonian captivity:


Neh 13:17  “Then I contended with the nobles of Yahudah, and said to them, ‘What evil matter is this that you are doing, profaning the Sabbath day?

Neh 13:18 “Did not your fathers do the same so that our Elohim brought all this evil on us and on this city? Yet you bring added wrath on Yisrael by profaning the Sabbath.’

Neh 13:19 And it came to be, at the gates of Yerushalayim, as it began to be dark before the Sabbath, that I commanded the gates to be shut, and commanded that they should not be opened till after the Sabbath. And I stationed some of my servants at the gates, so that no burdens would be brought in on the Sabbath day.

Neh 13:20 And the merchants and sellers of all kinds of wares spent the night outside Yerushalayim once or twice,

Neh 13:21 and I warned them, and said to them, ‘Why do you spend the night around the wall? If you do so again, I lay hands on you!’ From that time on they came no more on the Sabbath.”


  A profound thing appears here;  the prophet of Yahuah clearly declares that the gates of the city are to be shut as it began to become dark “before the Sabbath”.  Shadows were growing longer as the sun descended.

This prophet was the “governor” of Yerushalayim during the time of the return of the Yahudim from Babylon, and never mentions any error concerning when a day ends and begins.  If there was a dispute or even a hint of a problem, surely this would have been mentioned by him, since he kept a record of many other details.  These attempts at division are leading many astray, and there is no end to the diverse “winds” of doctrine and private interpretation flying about.

We must stand with our older brother on some things, especially those things he has been guarding for thousands of years.

We are returning “prodigals”, and need to follow the leading of Yahusha to be restored to not only Torah, but our older brother.

Hashatan hates this and works constantly against it happening, and so there is a great focus on division.

We will ultimately be one tree, not two.

 Always remember, love never fails ~  Yahusha just LOVES to see us loving one another!
