Time of Reckoning Has Come
His Reckoning of Time is coming to its end! The days of this wicked world are numbered and the writing on the wall is for everyone to see. How many will actually see it?
Come now and let us reason together, says YEHOVAH. Isaiah 1:18
ROSH HASHANAH 2020
The new moon as sighted last night (25 March) over the land of Israel and the barley was found in the state of the aviv. Therefore, the beginning of the New Year, Rosh HaShanah, was proclaimed at the sunset on 25 of March 2020. Happy New Year!
With these good news the Appointed Times of YHVH commence for us to observe out of love for the Creator and His Anointed One.
These are the Appointed Times of Yehovah, set-apart gatherings which you are to proclaim at their appointed times. Lev 23:4
The Accountability to Say “Amen!”
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 31 March 2020: The exclamation “Amen!” is so often misuse and even abuse by the preachers that it has lost its true meaning and has become a cliché in the churches today. Pastors, preachers, teachers, and TV evangelists, teach from the pulpit “teachings” foreign and sometimes even contradictory to the Teaching (Torah) of the Creator, and then they call for a repeat-after-me “Amen” and the laymen follow suit: “Amen!” But what does “Amen” mean?

Chiasm in the Prophetic Psalm 83
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 29 March 2020: Chiasmus or chiasm is a method used in the Scripture to emphasize the main idea or topic, but also to reveal hidden messages in the prophecy.
In Chapter “The Prophetic Psalm 83” from the present author’s book Reckoning of Time, we called Psalm 83 prophetic, because we see the realization of this psalm just before our eyes: all surrounding Arab nations conspire plots to destroy the State of Israel and drive the Jews in the sea. Read more
Urim and Tummim — Messiah’s Light and Perfectness
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 27 March 2020: Urim and tummim are perhaps the most peculiar article of the high priest attire. How they looked like, most unfortunately the Torah does not tell much. Nevertheless, what the Torah tell us is that they functioned as a means of communication between YHVH and His people. Read more
COVID-19 the Coronavirus Pandemic vs. NWO
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 22 March 2020: The whole world is the fearful grip of COVID-19 the Coronavirus pandemic with no clear outcome of it. In the most infected countries of the world, those of Europe, there are curfews and restriction of movement of people, ration of healthcare and medications in a desperate attempt to curb the spread of the pandemic of COVID-19 the Coronavirus.
Europe known with its Schengen treaty between its member countries to end border control for travel between them is a part of the past, as most of the Europeans are not even allowed to leave their homes much less to travel. The old lady Europe is rapidly dying. She was dying even before COVID-19 the Coronavirus pandemic due to low birth rate and aging population, but now its death is being accelerated even beyond human control. Read more
COVID-19 the Coronavirus Retaliates
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 15 March 2020: The whole world is in the grip of probably the most dangerous virus we have known — COVID-19 the Coronavirus. As of March 2020, COVID-19 has claimed the lives of many people with many more found infected. Their number is still growing as the uncertainty of how to fight the Coronavirus is growing, too.
Much has been written and will be written about COVID-19 the Coronavirus. The danger of this strain of virus does not come from the high mortality rate (as of the writing of this article) but from the unpredictability and the unknown. There is no vaccine, no cure; the scientists know little if anything about COVID-19 the Coronavirus.
The name “coronavirus” is derived from the Latin word “corona”, which means a crown. Hence, COVID-19, as the other strains of coronavirus such as SARS, etc., is considered the crown, that is, the super virus of all viruses. Read more
Vanity of vanities! All is vanity!
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM), 29 February 2020: Very often a mistranslation like “vanity” can overturn the whole meaning of a message in the Scripture. A typical example of it is the phrase in Ecclesiastes: Vanity of vanities! All is vanity!
Is life a vanity, or the things we have labored all of our days were in vain or futile? Have we not received them from Elohim, and if we indeed have, why has the preacher called “vanity of vanities”? What does the wisest man teach in his end-of-life message to us, when he says, “Vanity of vanities! All is vanity!” And had he said it at all?
The answer for all these questions we will find in this study. 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. Read more
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
