from qodesh objects
Many people are very concerned about this, and need a clear, simple answer to
This is a divisive topic, but try to not allow it to be, as much as it depends
“Niddah” is the separation from what is ritually clean - meaning the qodesh practices and objects in the previous priesthood. The priests were the medical community of their day, and they were highly trained concerning hygiene because they handled and cooked food as well. Our family members will often become unclean through daily living, and no one will be able to remain perfectly clean at all times.
There are many teachers out there writing all manner of things that concern
practically every “peripheral” aspect of the faith, while spending very little
effort on getting the main work of Yahusha done. Most of us were not
raised and trained by our parents in the truth, so naturally we often over-react
or over-compensate when we finally learn about a “new” detail.
Yahuah did not say we are to hide away from our family because we are in an
unclean condition, but rather to be vigilant and conscious of that uncleanness.
He told us about certain types of objects that could be touched by something
unclean, and how to cleanse them. If an object that is unclean touches
another object, then both are unclean until washed with water. When I need
to pick up a dead unclean bird for example, I use a plastic bag with ANOTHER
plastic bag around my hand that touches the bag in contact with the bird.
Thus, my hand is still clean, and I can throw the bird and both bags away
together (not in the house of course, but ideally by burial or burning).
The purpose of the instruction of niddah (separation from qodesh objects) is to
make us discern between the qodesh and the profane; the unclean person may
not participate in the Passover observance, or touch any of the qodesh objects
used in the service of the
If a woman in her period places a plastic sheet over the chairs she sits on,
then others can simply avoid sitting on her designated chairs. She isn’t
expected to be closed away from the rest of the family, otherwise Yahuah would
have clearly told us this. People are writing entire books on this
subject, and carrying people away after something that is simply a “niddah”
issue (separation from qodesh objects). Even when we are “unclean”, we are
Yahusha’s people -- every single one of us. There is nothing that
can separate us from Him, and if anyone is saying this is not so, they are false
“For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor messengers nor principalities nor powers, neither the present nor the future, nor height nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of Alahim which is in Messiah Yahusha our Master.”
If we are inseparable from Yahusha and His love, then that includes every time
and place, both men and women. Who designed the
menstruation cycle? It is part of life, and so is childbirth, or the
nocturnal issues of a man. Sure, we closely pay attention to these
conditions, but He always hears our prayers and certainly never told anyone to
be put into an “unclean place” unless they had leprosy - and in such
a case they are to be kept from the whole assembly.
If a man and woman have sex, they are both unclean until they both bath their
bodies, change their clothes, and the sun sets.
They are not contagious. If a woman gives birth, her “days” of childbirth
don’t make her contagious, simply unclean.
She can feed her family in her unclean state, otherwise her baby (or babies)
would perish, and any other children that depend upon her.
If a person is unclean and Pesach comes, they may observe it the following
month, if they are a male:
“Speak to the children of Yisrael, saying, ‘When any male of you or your
generations is unclean for a being, or is far away on a journey, he shall still
perform the Passover of Yahuah.
‘On the fourteenth day of the second month, between the evenings, they perform
it – with unleavened bread and bitter herbs they eat it.” Num
Only males 20 years old and older are required to
observe Pesach, Shabuoth, and Sukkoth - how many teachers inform
people of this?
I hope I’ve helped a little here - we simply have to prioritize and
keep things in their proper perspective.
Yahusha designed us, and He loves more than we can possibly know. If we
bleed, we think it is “unclean”.
"And see, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and
touched the tsitsith of His garment."
When He bled for us, we were healed.
"If we say that we have no sin, we are misleading ourselves, and the truth is
not in us.
If we confess our sins, He is trustworthy and righteous to forgive us the sins
and cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
