Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 30 April 2021:The terms “clean food” and “unclean food” are very common terms, even though they cannot be found anywhere in the Scripture; they are invented terms. Moreover, if we think about it, “unclean food” is a contradiction in terms. If something is “unclean”, it is unacceptable for eating, and therefore not food at all. By the same token the opposite is also true: there is no such thing in the Scripture as “clean food”. If the Creator has called something food, it is already accepted for eating, and the term “clean food” becomes redundant. However, once the [Christian] theologians invented the idea of “unclean food”, they invented another idea that the “unclean food” can be made clean, namely, through prayers. Hence, one may say that indeed if the food has become unclean, it may be made clean again. Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 27 April 2021: Apostle Mark opens his account of the public life of Yeshua, thus, “The beginning of the Good News of Yeshua Messiah, the son of Elohim.” Yeshua began his ministry with the immersion in the waters of the Yarden. But when was Yeshua reckoned as the son of Elohim? The traditional reading and interpretation of Chapter 3 in the Gospel of Luke holds the view that Yeshua was baptized in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar at the age of about thirty, as we read “He was about thirty years of age”. In other words, Yeshua was baptized and began his ministry at the age about thirty, but being younger than thirty. Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 14 April 2021: There are “tongues speakers” in the Christendom who have been convinced that speaking with some kind of unintelligible, unclear tongues is to them a sign or evidence of being “baptized in the Holy Ghost”. The “tongues speakers” claim the utterances that come out of their mouths are revelations from “the Holy Ghost”, which they cannot interpret; in other words, they utter something but do not know what it is. If someone claims that he or she has a gift from above, i.e. “speaking with tongues”, or other phenomenon, who has the sufficient authority to reject it? To do this the rejecter must stand between the recipient of the gift and his or her Creator and be a part of that experience. However, this is what we can do: we can examine the questionable texts and conclude whether these claims are Scriptural or not, not whether the claimer has a gift from heaven. Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 9 April 2021: There are three levels or channels of communication between the Infinite Creator and man; they are: (1) inspiration through Ruach haKodesh, (2) the oracle of urim and tummim, (3) and prophecy. The access to YHVH Elohim by means of the urim and tummim was on a lower level than that of a prophet, but it represented a higher level than hearing inspired words through Ruach haKodesh. Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 4 April 2021: Man will never truly and fully comprehend the origin of life and why he was created. And while the finite man is unable to understand the creation, the Infinite Creator is still knowable through His self-revelation: the Torah. In the Torah, for the first time of history of mankind, He revealed Himself, namely, what was, is, and what will be. Elohim created man in His image and since then Adam’s creation is repeated in the formation of every human being. Thus, man becomes the image of Elohim not in the bodily form, but by the merit of His Breath by which he becomes a living soul. Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 31 March 2021: There is no Hebrew word for religion. The concept of “religion” is a Greco-Roman dualism that divides a social life into religious and secular. However, this form of dualism is foreign to the Torah, which instead sees all aspects of life as one and the same: a righteous life. The word “religion” is actually the Latin word “religione”, which is of obscure etymology. Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 29 March 2021: When a tourist comes to Israel, one of the first thing he or she learns is the word Kabbalah. To check into a hotel, the tourist goes to the kabbalah – the reception desk in modern Hebrew. Hence, Kabbalah means reception or acceptance. Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 21 March 2021: There is a Jewish tradition that there is a bone in the human body called luz. This Hebrew word, whose origin is unknown, is used only once in the entire Scripture with the meaning of “almond”, as JPS renders it in Gen 30:37. The luz bone — a tiny bone most people are unaware of its existence — does not decay or perish; as a matter of fact, the luz bone cannot even be destroyed. And when it comes time to resurrecting the dead, the luz bone will play a major role, according to the Jewish school of thought. Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 14 March 2021: To fully understand the concept of prayer, one must free his thinking from the erroneous Gentile concept of it. This misunderstanding of “prayer” often leads some to think that YHVH Elohim is a God who demands “prayers” from the people if they want to receive something. The English word “to pray” has come from the Latin word precari, meaning “to beg”. This idea of “prayer” is what many are mistakenly led to believe in: prayer is an asking for provisions. Hence, the common misconception many people have about how a relationship with Elohim works. Some believe that to pray to Elohim is to ask Him for whatever one needs and wants, and the prayer brings the desired results. After all, are we not told that we do not receive, because we did not ask? Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 9 March 2021: It is a common belief that the immersion in water or baptism is merely an outward expression of faith. “One baptism for the remission of sins” found in the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed, is declared by all Christian mainstream churches, and the baptism in water is often considered the fundamental Christian belief. And if we read Strong Dictionary for the Greek βαπτίζω baptizo, we are surprised to find out that baptism [in water] was “used only in the New Testament of ceremonial ablution, especially of the ordinance of Christian baptism”. But there is nothing in the Scripture that can justify this belief. Besides, if we read closely the Apostolic Writings, we will find out that Yeshua haMashiach (the Messiah) baptized no one in water; His cousin Yochanan did, but not Yeshua. Can we rethink this?

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 22 February 2021: The Messiah gave us the parable of the tax coin, which is probably the most enigmatic and at the same time the most misunderstood parable of all. It is enigmatic, because He did not give us any explanation of it; misunderstood, because of what one theologian has said, “Are we as careful in rendering to God our hearts and lives as we are in paying our taxes and serving the state?” If one completely disagrees with such a “theology”, then this study is what he or she needs.

Creator’s Wedding Covenant with Israel
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 15 February 2021: The Creator of the universe made a wedding covenant with the nation of Israel at Mount Sinai. It was renewed at Mount Nebo, because of the disobedience to enter the Promised Land, ratified with blood in the suffering of a righteous man, and ultimately will be renewed again in the latter days, when the Torah of YHVH Elohim will be put in the hearts of people. However, there is a great deal of misunderstanding of a key constituent in the wedding Covenant with Israel, and more particularly the First Commandment concerning the prohibition of having “other gods” before the Creator YHVH. Thus, translated and displayed the First Commandment implies that there are “other gods other than Him”. Read more.
The Signs of YHVH Elohim
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 7 February 2021: The Creator YHVH Elohim has given certain signs so that everyone who has them should know that he or she belongs to Him. Should we not know these signs that will help us serve Him better, the way He wants to be served? Or we should follow the way of the man-made religion. If one says, “I rest on Sabbath and eat only kosher food”, everyone will know which God he or she serves: The God of Israel. Read more
Did Avraham observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread?
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 27 January 2021: According to the tradition, Avraham celebrated Passover with an unleavened bread. While the term Peisach, Passover, was first used for the Passover lambs slaughtered by the Israelites in Egypt, Avraham did celebrate a feast, in which he ate an unleavened bread, hundreds of years before the Festival of the Unleavened Bread was even constituted at Sinai. So, was the law of Passover and the Festival of the Unleavened Bread given to Avraham, before it was given to Israel in Egypt? The answer to this question can be found in … Read more
Are the GMO foods kosher?
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 23 January 2021: The GMO (genetically modified organisms) have become acceptable “foods” in the western world and often seen as a “solution” to the world’s problems, but are they kosher? Are they acceptable for consumption by the people of YHVH Elohim? About 90 percent of the crops in North America (Canada and the U.S.) is GMO. In this number of GMO foods are included but not limited to wheat, corn, rapeseed, peanut, tomato, cucumbers, to name a few; the GMO animals: breast yielding, hormone raised, broiler chicken and turkey, [Canadian] salmon and others.

“Many False Prophets Shall Come in My Name”
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 16 January 2021: The Messiah gave us a clear warning that many false prophets will come in His Name and deceive many. In Matthew Chapter 24 (aka the short Book of Revelation), when asked by His disciples, Yeshua warned them about the coming of many false prophets before His return. And the Messiah answering, said to them that the deception of false prophets will be the main sign of His coming. Read more
