Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 14 July 2024: Biblical Hebrew is a small language compared to English which along with the borrowed words, and scientific, medical and legal terms borrowed from Greek and Roman languages is estimated to have about two and a half million words. The number of attested Hebrew words however is 8198, of which some 2000 are words that occur only once in the Hebrew Scripture. That makes Hebrew indeed a very small language. Yet, Hebrew as the tongue of the Creation, has words that are full of deep meaning. That makes Hebrew language very concise expressing much in few words, as one can come to this conclusion by simply comparing a Hebrew text to its English translation. Read more.


Hebrew Word: Swine, Pig

A washed sow returns to her rolling in the mud

“A washed sow returns to her rolling in the mud”.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 7 July 2024: The Creator of the universe knows that there is no other animal that chews the cud and is unclean except three, and that there is no other animal that has split hoofs and is unclean except the swine. For whatever reason, the Eternal has listed swine last in the list of the four animals that are not food. But this animal is no less unkosher, than any other prohibited animals listed in Leviticus 11. Yet, this animal has come to typify everything that is repugnant for the Eternal when meant for food (see Lev 11:11). Traditionally, the term “swine” or “pig” has come to mean a person who is deemed to be despicable or contemptible on account of animal’s filthiness. But a radical approach suggested by some rabbis is that in the Messianic Age swine will once again return to its kosher status. Since it already has split hoofs, they say, the only thing the Creator has to do is to make swine chew the cud. Can we rethink this? Read more.


The Servant in Isaiah 53: Collective Figure of Israel or an Individual.

Agnus Dei (the lamb of God), Francisco de Zurbarán, 1640

It is not difficult for the Rabbis to interpret the Bible code hidden in Isaiah 52 for this is the language of Kabbalah on a sod level. Agnus Dei (the lamb of God), Francisco de Zurbarán, 1640.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 24 June 2024: The prophecy in Isaiah 53 is apparently not Isaiah’s first prophecy. The Jewish commentators are in agreement that Isaiah’s standing as a prophet is second only to that of Mosheh, for while all other prophets received their prophecies through visions, Isaiah received his directly from the Eternal. Unlike the other prophets, Isaiah composed his prophecies in poetic language, often using obscure words and formulas which we will try to address in this study. This males the Book of Isaiah of the highest register, rich in meaning and poetic Hebrew. In the most debated chapter of Isaiah, Chapter 53, the servant of the Eternal has been interpreted either as the collective figure of Israel or an individual. But who is this servant the Eternal is speaking of? In this endeavor, we are fully aware that we cannot remove all the difficulties we will come across, but it is worth trying, as the reader will understand below. And even though most commentators (Jewish and Christian alike) have already treated this chapter exhaustively, there is some room left for our comments. Read more.


Textual Criticism: Alterations and Corruptions

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 9 June 2024: It is the object of this work to explain the Hebrew text of Leviticus 26 and expose a certain alteration in the KJV translation which significantly changes the messages of the Torah. But it is only possible to explore this issue once we know what the Hebrew text indeed reads, and once we understand the meaning of its words and know its grammar. In the following, therefore, we would like to posit another way to render the Hebrew text, specifically in reference to the Hebrew word vav. This work has also a second object, namely, we will try to show that the question of textual criticism of translations is far from being trivial and hope to provide an adequate explanation of the issue below.

Hebrew Word: Desolation

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 5 June 2024: Chapter 26 of Leviticus is summary of the statutes, ordinances, and laws which the Eternal gave the children of Israel at Mount Sinai, before they would start their journey to the Promised Land at the hand of Mosheh. It follows the laws in the preceding chapter that regulate how the Land to receive its due rest in the Sabbatical and Jubilee years. Verses 32 and 33 of Leviticus 26, to which we now turn in our Hebrew study, state that the land the Eternal would make desolate if the children of Israel would choose not to follow the laws and instructions in the Torah. And the result of this would be that their enemies who would occupy it and try to settle the land would be unable to make it fruitful as it was before. The focus word in our study is … Read more.


Hebrew Words: Shofar, Teruah, Yovel

According to the tradition, the use of a ram's horn is a reference to the binding of Yitschak, when Avraham sacrificed the ram in place of his son. Other animal horns may be used, such as the horns of antelope, but the horns of oxen are forbidden, as they bring the memory of the sin of the Golden Calf.

The use of a ram’s horn on Yom Teruah is a reference to the binding of Yitschak, when Avraham sacrificed a ram in his place. While other animals’ horns may be used, such as the horns of antelope, horns from oxen are forbidden by the sages, as they evoke the sin of the golden calf.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 26 May 2024: Leviticus 23:24 refers to the first day of the seventh month as Shabbaton, a memorial day which is to be proclaimed with a blast of a horn, hence, the Day of Trumpets. But in the rabbinic literature, this day is called by the misnomer “Rosh HaShanah”, which literally means in Hebrew “Head of the year” or “New Year”, even though Exodus 12 clearly designates the beginning of the year in the spring, the time of the Exodus from Egypt, not in autumn. For the purpose of the present Hebrew study, we will focus on verses in Leviticus 23 and 25 regarding the blowing of horns for the sanctifications of the first day of the seventh month and Jubilee Year.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 19 May 2024: The following study is from the series “The Origin” and is related to what we have written in the articles: The Origin and Evolution of Species in Tanach, which explained the evolution of life according to the Hebrew Scripture (Tanach) and The Table of the 70 Nations Revised, in which we revised the universally accepted genealogy of the 70 nations from the common father of mankind, Noach. We suggested in the earlier sources that evolution is a natural phenomenon that has its place in the Creation study. We are now turning to this study to further explain what we commenced previously in the foresaid articles. It would be therefore advantageous for the knowledgeable reader to refer to them [and all other articles in The Origin] for a proper context of what we intend to say hereafter. In this study, we will explain the evolution of languages and how it influenced the evolution and existence of nations. Read more.


The Origin and Evolution of Species in Tanach

On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life, 1860.

On the Origin of Species. “There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one”. Charles Darwin, (1860).

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 14 May 2024: On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life (short title: On the Origin of Species) was Charles Darwin’s scientific work (1809-1882) with which he intended to prove that species had not been separately created after their kinds, and that natural selection had been the main driver of evolution of the species. “On the Origin of Species” is also known as “evolution of the species” which is a theory that postulates that the various types of plants, animals, and humans have their origin in a preexisting form of life (ameba) and that the distinguishable differences that are observed today are due to mutations in successive generations.

References to Reincarnation of Soul in Tanach

The concept of reincarnation of the soul is only alluded more or less in the Tanach but never explicitly stated in the Torah. Why?

Infinity of life. The concept of reincarnation of the soul is only alluded more or less in the Tanach but never explicitly stated in the Torah. Why?

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 5 May 2024: Tanach (the Hebrew Scripture) rarely speaks of “heaven” (only in Gen 1:1) and “hell” (only on a few occasions, i.e., Isa 22:14), and whenever it refers to them, it always mentions them “passing by” and never as a reward or as a threat of eternal condemnation. Why? The concept of reincarnation of the soul is only alluded more or less in the Tanach but never explicitly stated in the Torah. Why? Because heaven, hell, and reincarnation are unverifiable. No one has returned from there to confirm their existence, and no one has memories of a past life. Torah occupies itself with directions and instructions as to how humans to conduct their lives here on the earth, according to the Creator’s moral standards. This is verifiable. Read more.


Hebrew Words: Seed, Son, Remember, and Covenant

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 27 April 2024: In this Hebrew study we will learn four Hebrew words for “seed”, “son”, “to remember”, and “covenant” and how they relate to each other. In the following, we would like to posit another way to look at these Hebrew words, specifically in reference to the Covenant the Eternal made with the patriarch Avraham. We will begin with the Hebrew word for “seed”: Zera. Read more.


Does the Eternal Creator Change His Mind, For He Changes not?

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 19 April 2024: Does the Eternal Creator change His mind, or does He relent or repent for what He has done, and before whom would He repent? The question is not whether He can, for He is not subjected to any limitation, but rather: Does His essence that transcends time and space change what He has already spoken? Mitigation, appeasement, and pardon of sins are often mistaken for forgiveness. The misunderstanding becomes even more evident when terms such as “relented” and “repented” appear in the translations. According to the translations of Exo 32:14, it appears to the reader that … Read more.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 12 April 2024: It was well known that the Babylonian exile would last until seventy years were completed (Jer 25:12; 2Ch 36:21). But for how long was the Roman exile intended to last? The Roman exiled ended on 14 May 1948 at the moment the first prime minister of Israel, Ben Gurion, announced that Medinat Israel (the State of Israel) had been established. A nation was born in one day—the State of Israel—in fulfillment of the prophecy in Isaiah! The next day, however, the Arab nations invaded the Land with the sole purpose of pushing the Jews from the river (the Jordan) into the sea (the Mediterranean). At that crucial moment for the State of Israel, David Ben Gurion, a secular Jew, and Jacob Blaustein, the leader of the American Jewry, … Read more.
