I wasn't born or raised Jewish but I've been reading your website
recently and find it to be a great source of the most important and
beautiful information. I would like to receive the newsletter if
Anyway, thank you again for all you've gone through and will continue
to endure so that the children of Yahweh can come to be guided by His
Spirit. It means a lot to all of us.

I admire your honesty and your courage. Thank you for your site. It
is very clear, good, honest and correct!!! Thank you for making a
stand for people like myself. My grandma, my fathers' mother's maiden
name was Tobias, so it seems I am a little bit Jewish but I do not
know much about her maiden name or where the Tobias's came from as
far as what Jewish tribe they were all from. I am just beginning to
learn about the Jewish people. God's great love for the Jew and the
gentile is so very great, Bless his holy name, amen. I thank you that
you are telling the truth and may God make his face to smile upon you
and may he bless you,
Love in Jesus,

This comes from someone who read an article about the deity of Yeshua
(Yeshua: God the Son):
I read that Article and I just sat there saying OH!!!!!!! As I often
do whenever I see something for the first time. It made so much sense
Sometimes I gather the children around and we sit and read from your
Website. Even my Mother and Husband who love to be read to will sit
and listen. Jared is my 10 year old. He looks forward to me reading
different teachings and Newsletters to him. Often I read them first
so that we can discuss if something is not correct or I'm not sure of
I can't wait to read this to the Family. Yes, the' (concept of)
'Family is such a good way to explain the Deity.
Avram how could people know the God of Israel without understanding
the Hebraic things that are so important in understanding scripture?
I think the answer to that is we can't......
When I started to understand Messianic Worship I questioned all that
I learned, I want to Worship in Spirit and in Truth.
I believe that Speaking with you has and will help me pray more for
Israel. It sounds like such a wonderful place. I could only imagine
what a Spiritual Life most be like there. Not just to read the word
of God but to experience the Land that he chose for his people and to
be there to lift up the name of Yeshua. That must be an awesome
experience. I Pray for God's protection over you and Ruti as you do
the Lord's work
In His Love

I think it is excellent that you really have a good heart to help
people. You have a very good site and the honesty you put into it is
so terrific that I had to respond if I could. You really show that
you have a heart that loves people and you really want to help people.
I really think that others need what you have. Truth can be so hard
to find these days but you have had some very good training on the
word of God and it shows a whole lot.
Please keep helping all those that you can. I really love your site.
I am really happy that you care so much about others and their
salvation with a true heart. Please keep up the excellent work. Love
really is the key to being a good teachers!
Please say 'hi' to your wife. I'm sure that she is as sweet and kind
as you are. May God bless you both greatly, in Jesus/Yeshua's holy
and precious name.

My husband Mike and I have been cleaning up our lives and doing our best to 'come out of Babylon'. We have started keeping Shabbat, the Feasts, giving up pagan holidays and symbols. I had started wearing my Star of David earrings and bought the necklace. Mike threw out his cross key ring the other night and asked me how he could get a Star of David key ring. Then he asked about the origins of the Star. I realized I had neglected to study this. I have been searching the web today and have taken my jewelry off as I have read yours and other articles telling of the pagan origins of this symbol.
Thank you for telling the truth. I sometimes don't like it but its no less the truth. Just goes to show how strong the pull is to idolatry.

Hi. I'm a gentile believer in Yeshua. I really enjoyed reading your article, 'Behold Your God!' I have a great burden for Jewish unbelievers and a great joy for the work God has done in those who believe! :)
I felt lead to help in a ministry where I live and found out there isn't one. I can't find anyone here who's interested in taking the Gospel to local Jewish people. There is a large Jewish community here and being on the outside, I don't know how to begin reaching them. I've been praying that God would bring me someone to help me - like a Jewish believer with the same burden.
Anyway, I rejoice in the work God's doing through you, Avram.
Your grafted-in sister in Christ,

Dear Avram and Ruti,
Greetings once again. I have been in prayer for you and am often reminded of the work you are doing and the way you are spreading the Gospel of Yeshua to Israel. I pray for the Lord to enhance your ministry, to empower your witness and to compel thousands to believe upon our Lord as their Savior and King as a result of your dedication to your calling. I continue to pray for your safety and for the protection of Israel.
I have read again your newsletter dated June 2002. Afterward, I was compelled by the Holy Spirit that I needed to give $50.00 to your ministry. I would like to know where you would me to send it.
If you recall we did write to one another for a while. I had much growing to do - and have made leaps in my faith and in my obedience to our Lord. I have a fervent hunger to continue in all of the ways that will please Yeshua. I have had wounds that have been healed, and bondages that have been broken. The Lord is faithful. He is loving and forever I will praise Him and give Him glory for Who He is! What an awesome God we serve.
Although my husband is still not a believer, I am learning how to walk in a way pleasing to my Lord. With a meek and quiet spirit combined with a submissive heart, I show Him Yeshua.
I also share with my husband (only when he is willing to listen) about how that Old Testament prophets spoke of Yeshua to come. I need help with the presentation though. I know that you witness using only the Old Testament - can you please send me the plan of salvation you use, and a guide of your witnessing using the Old Testament? I hope that I will be able to gently present it to my husband in a way that will help him to see that the prophets predictions of Yeshua had to be inspired by God and that it was far greater than a coincidence.
It would be a blessing if you will tell me how you present the Gospel. I think that since you are accustomed to dealing with those blind about the truth of the Messiah, and the teachings of all of the New Testament, your presentation would be helpful in bringing light to one blinded even more.
May God abundantly & continually bless you,

Your page Law 102 is very good. I may print it out because I really like all of this information. It would be so nice if others knew this. We do not celebrate any of those pagan holidays. We don't celebrate Christmas, we don't celebrate Easter, we don't celebrate Halloween. We were raised thinking it was O.K., but we learned a few years ago that they are pagan and indeed they are from Babylon.
Your site is even more excellent the more I read and learn from it. Avram, may you and Ruti have a blessed evening, I love you both, praises and Glory to Yeshua, King Of Glory, and owner of my heart,
Loving him and loving it, in his holy and precious name.
P.S. I love your site!!!

Thank you so much for the excellent articles that you so freely provide. It is so uplifting to find a website that provides good solid biblical teaching of Hebrew perspective. In this day and age, finding your website was like finding a needle in a haystack!
I cannot possibly tell you how much I appreciate the teaching you have provided for so many.
Again, thank you!

I have just finished 'Set My People Free! Acts 15:20' which definitely
drove home the true meaning of 'fornication' and why Yacov stressed it. I
had always believed that non-Jews should keep Torah. But I heard a teaching
by Monte Judah yesterday on Galatians via the Internet that made be wonder
whether the outward demonstrations were necessary as long as your 'heart'
was right or mature.
One's heart being 'right and mature' is part and parcel of Torah. It cannot
be used as a reason for negating Torah observance. In this, Monte is not
correct. Perhaps he needs to read 'Set My People Free! Acts 15:20'?
Besides, who defines 'right and mature? Should not God be the Judge? He has
given us His Torah, His Word on what is 'right and mature' and where we
deviate from it, we are not 'right and mature'. He tells us very plainly
that we are not to add to or take away from His Word (Deut. 12:29-32). And
that walking in His Ways (Holy Days, dietary laws, etc.), are holy (Lev.
11:44-45; 23:2-3, 7, Deut. 14:2, 21; 28:9, etc.).
If you read Law 102, you'll be better able to understand Paul in Galatians.
The key is that whenever he speaks of justification, the Law, SYMBOLIZED in
circumcision, is discounted because the Law cannot change a man's nature or
justify him. It was never meant to. The Law can only condemn those who look
to it for justification. That's not the Law's 'fault' as it was designed to
It's our fault that we can't keep it without sinning. This is where
Yeshua's Blood and Spirit come in and where the circumcision made without
hands comes into play. But this is all for justification, ultimately
meaning, righteousness on the Day of Judgement. We don't trust in the Law
(circumcision), to justify us. The epistle or letter to the Galatians
crests in Gal. 5:4.
>'You have been severed from Messiah, you who are seeking to be JUSTIFIED by
Law; you have fallen from grace.'
As for lifestyle though, the Law, which was originally given to Israel
AFTER their salvation from Egypt, is God's blueprint for holy living. God
continually stresses this (holiness) to Israel. We are to be holy (set
apart) from the nations or peoples around us because He is holy. His ways
are to become our ways. We are not to emulate the ways of the pagan
peoples. And this is exactly what the Church has done and why it is so
wrong. How can one's heart be 'right and mature' if one's actions mimic
pagans worshiping their gods? Must not the heart and the action by one in
righteousness? Listen to what the Apostle Paul says about the Law in his
greatest theological letter:
Rom. 3:31: 'Do we then nullify the Law through faith? May it never be! On
the contrary, we establish the Law.'
Rom. 7:12: 'So then, the Law is holy, and the commandment is holy and
righteous and good.'
Now Paul is speaking of the Law as a blueprint for our life. Now we can
understand what is sin and what is righteousness from God's perspective.
(Romans was not only Paul's greatest theological letter but it was also
written after Galatians.)
We don't tithe in order to be saved or justified. We tithe because we are
saved or justified. We don't do good works in order to be saved. We do them
because we are saved. We don't love our neighbor in order to be justified.
We love our neighbor because we are justified and the Blood of Yeshua
enables us to forgive our neighbors and love them. We don't keep Sabbath
and Passover and the dietary laws in order to be justified but because we
have been justified. (In Paul's day there were those who thought that be
keeping the Law (i.e. circumcision), one was saved. Of course, this is not
to be found anywhere in Scripture but was made up by man. Faith in Yeshua
justifies us. Paul's establishing 'the Law' means that it's not being used
for salvation but for walking out one's life, as it was originally meant to
be by Yahveh. He didn't give it to Israel in order to be saved from Egypt,
but in order to know what was right and wrong in His Eyes.)
If we begin to understand the Yeshua is Lord of our life, that He
determines what we eat and wear and which days we are to consider holy,
then accepting Torah is not wrong but wholly in keeping with what it means
to truly follow Him. How wrong can it be if Yeshua walked in it all the
days of His Life? And if He is the same, yesterday, today and forever, and
He lives in us, why should we do any different?
Shalom, Avram and Ruti,
I was blessed by many of the articles on your website. The first one I read
was "Sam the Rock-Thrower". It takes a lot of grace to be able to handle a
situation like that the way you did. I also read much of "My Story". My heart
was again touched beyond measure by your love for your sons, and your even
greater love for your heavenly Father.
The articles about Sacrifices put together all the pieces of the puzzle for
me on this topic. I have not been able to understand the view that since the
Messiah's sacrifice, Temple sacrifices would be an abomination. Neither have
I desired to downplay the significance of Messiah's high priesthood according
I would very much like to help support your efforts in Israel. If you have
any special needs that I can pray for, I would love to help in that way. And
I am willing to help out financially. Please pray for me that the Ruach Hakodesh
will guide my steps.
Your sister BaMoshiach,
It has been a delight reading your website. Yahveh has led my family and I
out of the church to an understanding of Scripture probably identical to that
expressed in your website. It seems we would agree on most, if not all. It
is amazing how He is gathering a people together for Himself from all parts
of the world. We are in contact with others in various parts of the world who
have been led to the same realisations and revelations of Truth.
May Yahveh bless you mightily my dear brother
