Time of Reckoning Has Come
Come now and let us reason together, says YEHOVAH. Isaiah 1:18
14 and 15 of the 12th Month
9/10 and 10/11 February
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 26 February 2020: On the 14th and the 15th of the 12th month millions of Jews around the world will celebrate Purim as a deliverance from a certain Holocaust, and rightly so. The Jews in Persia were on the brink of extermination and had Mordecai and Queen Esther done nothing or not enough, all Jews would have perished in the Holocaust.
However, is this Purim all about childish plays and making fancy “hamantaschen” cookies named after Haman, one of the world’s most notorious anti-Semite? Because, this is how Purim is celebrated today. But, is there anything more to it than that? Is there anything that we have not seen, which we were supposed to see? Read more
Proof that the Bible is the Word of the Creator
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 20 February 2020: Is the Bible the Word of the Creator, or it was a man-made invention? And what is the proof that the Bible was not written by the Jews but is the Word of the Creator through His prophets? There are many accusations that the Bible is a myth or a compilation of legends at best. The secularists accuse the Jews of inventing the Bible, while the Muslims: of distorting it. Read more
President Trump and the Meaning of Sanctity of Life
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 16 February 2020: “Life” cannot have a single definition for it, much less a definition of the meaning of life. Moreover, some languages do not even have definite words for a clear concept of life, hence it is hard to define the meaning of life itself. And if it is hard to define the meaning of life, how can the sanctity of life be defined? Read more
Pagan Names in the Calendar
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 13 February 2020: Fundamental Rights of Israel are bestowed upon the children of Israel in their relation to YHVH for observing His appointed times, and appearing before Him three times a year: for the Festival of the Unleavened Bread, the Festival of the Weeks, and the Festival of the Tabernacles.

Interpretations of How Israel Left Egypt
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 9 February 2020: There is a peculiar passage in the Exodus story regarding how Israel left Egypt. The Sages of old sought to find a meaningful interpretation of an obscured Hebrew word in the Book of Exodus in order to explain this passage. Read more
Has the Passover Lamb Died for Everyone?
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 3 February 2020: There is a common belief that the Passover Lamb has died for everyone. This is derived from the very statement Yeshua the Passover Lamb of YHVH made Joh 3:16,
This truthful statement, however, is believed to mean that whosoever believes is saved and will not perish. Notice the pair of words: the world and whosoever and how they are interpreted. The way these two words are interpreted in conjunction is that whosoever, whatever person, from the world believes in the Son of God will have an everlasting life. Whosoever, whatever person!

The Forbidden Fruit of the Tree of Good and Evil
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 26 January 2020: The forbidden fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is mysterious as the tree itself. But what was the forbidden fruit and what was the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden?
It is a Christian tradition that it was an apple, but this could have been a tradition associated with the pagan traditions involving Athena with an apple (in the Greek mythology, Athens is a goddess of wisdom and useful arts and prudent warfare, identified with Roman Minerva).
However, the forbidden fruit might have been … Read more
Prayer on Yom Teruah to the Possessor of All Mercies
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 20 January 2020: There is a very interesting prayer on Yom Teruah, the Day of the Trumpets, that mentions the name of a minister of the Face [of YHVH]. The title of this prayer is “Sar HaPanim”, Hebrew for “Minister of the Face”, in the Prayer Book for Rosh HaShana Machzor Raba, Nusah Ashkenaz, Publishing House of Eshkol of Jerusalem. In the rabbinical eschatology “Minister of the Face [of YHVH]” is a inner reflection of the Face of the Creator. Read more
The War of Gog of Magog Concerning Turkey and Libya
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 19 January 2020: The Bible prophecy alludes to three scenarios of the War of Gog of Magog in Ezekiel, Zechariah, and Isaiah, the final war in this world, also known as World War III – the final war that will end all wars before the return of Yeshua, the Messiah of YHVH. In Chapter “Two Scenarios for the War of Gog of Magog” from the present author’s book The Reckoning of Time, we discussed two possible scenarios of the war. According to these two scenarios in Zechariah 12-14 and in Ezekiel 38-39, the war in Zechariah is the darker of the two, as this scenario may lead to a new holocaust, when the armies of the hostile nations led by Gog of the land of Magog will lay a siege against Jerusalem.
However, according to the scenario in Ezekiel, no such danger can be found in the prophecy. On the contrary, what seems to transpire is the total destruction of the coalition of the invading forces of the enemies of Israel, as no siege is even mentioned in the prophecy. We also studied a third possible scenario that differs from the ones in Zechariah 12-14 and Ezekiel 38-39. Read more
The Forgotten Matriarchs of Israel
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 5 January 2020: Who are the forgotten matriarchs of Israel, and why have they been forgotten in the first place? Sarah, Rebekah, Leah, and Rachel are the matriarchs of Israel and they have their honorable place in the nation’s history, as every Shabbat in the synagogues around the world the Jewish women are blessed in the name of “Sarah, Rebekah, Leah, and Rachel”: “May the Lord make you like Sarah, Rebekah, Rachel, and Leah!” But why only in the names of the four matriarchs?
Little we know about the forgotten matriarchs of Israel, because they were silent and never spoke a word; they were unloved, although, they did nothing wrong; they were unsung unlike the other matriarchs were, although, they deserve to be sung.
Despite our forgetfulness, the forgotten matriarchs of Israel gave four out of the twelve tribes—something they should have been honored for, but they have not. Read more
The Messenger of His Face and How the Torah was Given to Israel
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 29 December 2019: The authorship of the Book of Genesis is attributed to Mosheh (Moses) who wrote it down for us. But let us ask the question, “How could he have known what had taken place from the Creation of the world to his birth?” The story of Adam and Eve, the Flood in Noach’s time and all detailed description of the building of the ark and the duration of the flood, the tower of Bavel would have been the unknown, unless someone had narrated the whole story.
Not to mention, of course, the creation of the heavens and the earth, the stars and everything visible and invisible in the universe, which no man has ever witnessed. All of this would have been unknown to him without some kind of revelation from the heaven.
There must have been someone who had recounted all these stories for Mosheh, because without this information we would not have had the Book of Genesis to start with. Read more
Did Everything Die in the Universal Flood?
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 24 December 2019: The account in Gen 7:21-23 says that all flesh that moved on the earth, birds, cattle, beast, and every swarming thing that swarms, and all people perished in the flood. In other words, all in whose nostrils was the breath of life and all that was on the dry land, died. The Creator blotted out every living substance which was upon the face of the earth; and only Noach and his family only were left, and the living creatures that were with him in the ark. But, did everything die? Read more
How Faith did not Change Rome but Rome Changed the Faith
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 23 December 2019: In 312 before the Battle of the Milvian Bridge, Constantine claimed he experienced a vision of a new sign when he looked up to the sun and saw a cross of light with the Greek words “In this sign, Conquer!” above it. He commanded his troops to adorn their shields with a new symbol ☧ formed from the first two letters of the Greek word ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ (hristos), after which he conquered Rome.
In 597 C.E., in his letter to Augustine the first missionary to the British Isles, Pope Gregory wrote:
“Do not destroy the temples of the English gods; change them to Christian churches. Do not forbid the harmless customs which have been associated with the old religions; consecrate them to Christian use.”
But everything started with the Babylonian sun-worship. Read more
The Hebrew Ruach HaKodesh vs the Roman Holy Spirit
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 15 December 2019: The Hebrew Ruach HaKodesh and the Roman Holy Spirit are two different concepts of the power of the Creator; the former sees Ruach HaKodesh as the creative force, the power of the Creator through which everything came into existence, while the latter sees it as the “third person” of the “Holy Trinity”: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, three persons in one God, all Gods, yet they are one God. In this trinitarian formula, which appears only in Mat 28:19 but lacking in the other gospels, all Christian scholars agree that the first person, the Father, is Spirit, the second person is the body of the “trinity”, and the third person is Holy Spirit, that is, a special Spirit. But who is able to define the term “person” in reference to the Creator, because neither the Tanak nor the Apostolic Writings define the Creator and His Ruach HaKodesh as “persons”? Read more
The Oneness of the Creator
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 11 December 2019: If there is a human being who had ever known the Oneness of the Creator, that was Mosheh. He was the only human being who had ever known the Creator so closely, to speak with Him mouth to mouth and face to face, yet, he simply said, “Listen up O Israel, YHVH is one!”
The common understanding of this appeal, known as Shema Israel, is the Oneness of Creator God, i.e. the oneness or unity of the Godhead, and the obedience of His people to His will. In Time of Reckoning Ministry, we believe that there is much more to the Oneness of the Creator than that, since there is no English word that remotely equals the Hebrew word echad “one” in its range of senses of one, first, only, united, etc. Read more
