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 concerning The War of Gog of Magog is for everyone to see.
Come now and let us reason together, says YEHOVAH. Isaiah 1:18

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 30 January 2023: There are gentiles who convert the Rabbinic Judaism to serve Elohim in a better way, as they see it. While there are others who convert to Judaism for the purpose to emigrate to the State of Israel and be one with the chosen nation. The former is a religious while the latter is a political decision; they both have nothing to do with what YHVH Elohim says to those who desire to join themselves YHVH. In the following, we would like to posit another way to look at this controversial topic, specifically in reference to the conversion, because when we examine the matter closely, we will find that it is far from being religious.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 22 January 2023: Elohim created the heavens and the earth and everything in it visible and invisible in six days, and then He rested on the seventh. And since then, the Creator has remained rested in the last 6,000 years? For lack of an alternative interpretation, the reader is led to apply the same mode of interpretation that the Creator made heaven and earth at the time of creation and does not at present make heaven and earth. Now if the Creator made heavens and earth once, why can He not be described as “making heaven and earth”? Can we rethink this? Read more.
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 16 January 2023: There is a great deal of misunderstanding of two Hebrew words — almah and bethulah. Both words can overlap in their meaning, but they can also differ significantly. Most notably, this difference and misunderstanding are seen in the usage of the word almah in Isaiah 7:14, whose interpretation may lead to drawing a quick conclusion of either being a messianic prophecy or a fulfillment of a historic event, all depends on who reads and interprets the verse. In the following, we will explain to the best knowledge and ability the polemical subject in Isaiah 7:14: “Almah conceives and gives birth to a son”. Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 8 January 2023: While science wants to convince us that the Earth is incredibly old, strangely enough, there is a scientific method that testifies to the opposite, namely, that the life on our planet is in fact incredibly young. This method no one wants to talk about is called “Radiocarbon-14 dating“: chemical analysis designed to estimate the age of geological specimens by measuring residual carbon in artifacts, animal, and human bones. This raises the inevitable question: Can this method help us estimate our planet’s age? Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 1 January 2023: The creation story narrates that Elohim created a firmament above the heaven. This term has been perplexing the readers of Genesis for a long time with no clear definition of what “firmament” is. Yet, the Scripture further assures us that this firmament declares the work of His creation, and the heaven is proclaiming it to the glory of Elohim. If the firmament, which the Creator placed above the heaven solely on account of His words on the second day of creation, was so important, should we not examine the matter? Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 25 December 2022: The First Commandment of the Covenant of the Most High, which He made with the Nation of Israel states, “You shall have no other gods before Me”, meaning “no gods are to be brought before the Creator”. This interpretation is not grounded well in the Hebrew text, as the connection between “other gods” and “before Me” is not well established in such a translation. We will explain in the following that this is not the way to interpret the verse, because although the English translation is easy to read and understand, nevertheless it is inaccurate and does not fully convey the original message intended in the Covenant. Because when we examine the matter closely, we will find that there is more to it than that. Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 19 December 2022: Tanak (the Hebrew Scripture) is Judaism’s the most authoritative and foundational text. The word “TaNaK” is an acronym of Torah (The Five Books of Moses), Nevi’im (Prophets), and Ketuvim (Writings). The Tanak is revered as a direct revelation (the Torah and the Prophets) by the Creator first to the nation of Israel and then to the nations, and the third part as inspired writings. The first book of the Tanak is Genesis, and the last book is Malachi. On the other side is the Christian Bible, which is a collection of books as accepted by the Christian Church as holy scripture, genuine and inspired. The first book of the Christian Bible is Genesis, and the last is Revelation. One may assume that the only difference between the Hebrew Tanak and the Christian Bible is the so-called “New Testament. However, both canons differ not only in contents, order, but also in theology. Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 8 December 2022: Are we allowed to swear in the Name of YHVH? According to the Sermon on the Mount, we are not allowed to swear at all, while the Torah allows us. Is there any contradiction between the Torah and the Messiah? It is true, of course, as we are all aware, that if anyone who claims to be the Messiah has changed, annulled even one law of the Torah and taught the others to do so, he cannot be the Messiah. Yet, the Torah and the Sermon on the Mount appear to express two contradictory views on the importance of swearing in the name of YHVH. Contradictions tend to make people take sides. And many have taken their side, according to what they have chosen to believe in. Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 4 December 2022: Did Ya’akov hate his wife, Leah? It appears so, when we read the verse which clearly says that YHVH saw that Leah was hated. But was she indeed hated by her husband Ya’akov? For the purpose of this study, we will focus on a single verse in Genesis 29 which indeed says that Leah was hated. In the following, however, we will argue that Ya’akov did not hate Leah, on the contrary, he loved her. Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 25 November 2022: “Life is sacred” is a fundamental principle in the Scripture. We have explained this principle in the series of articles Sanctity of Life. But still, it is equally important to clarify one more thing. If life indeed begins at conception and is sacred as the Scripture testifies, is that which we call “fetus” a human being? And if “fetus” is a human being, when does it receive its soul: at conception or at birth? In other words, the question: Is “fetus” “it” or a person, because it is the soul that makes a living body a person? Another question that we need to posit is this: Is there concrete evidence from the Scripture to support our supposition that the unborn child in the mother’s womb is not some impersonal “embryo” or “fetus” but a living human being with a soul? To these questions we will seek answers in the following study. Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 20 November 2022: The Hebrew Bible has the miraculous stories of six barren women, their conception, and giving birth to male children. We will address them in the following vein and offer another one for the reader’s consideration, as we will explain the reason for this in due course. There is a well-established Rabbinic tradition that the conception of Yitschak the son of Avraham was entirely by way of promise, not natural. His miraculous conception and birth, however, are not unique to the Scripture in which other miraculous conceptions and births are recorded. Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 10 November 2022: In the following, we will explain what one needs to know about the controversial topic of “flat earth”. How did the Creator create the planet Earth: flat or round? The issue of round or flat Earth is well known, so here we will only offer a basic outline of what we intend to say. While the question of round or flat Earth may appear out of touch with the reality, and although much has been commented on it, there is some room left for our comments. And since this is an article, and not a thesis or essay, we have listed a few examples of scientific facts taken directly from the Bible, and they are: Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 6 November 2022: The primordial light having existed from the beginning in the earliest state of the universe was created with the decree, “Light exist!”, and the light existed. Maimonides, the greatest Jewish scholar of the Middle Ages, in his fundamental work Guide for the Perplexed, states that there is a difference between “first” and “beginning” (or principle). For example, heavens and earth were the first to be written in Genesis, after them came the light. But this does not imply that heavens and earth were the cause of light. Thus, Maimonides reasons that the true explanation of the first verse of Genesis is as follows: “In [creating] a principle Elohim created the beings above and the things below.” Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 30 October 2022: The genealogy of the 70 nations in Genesis 10 traces their origin back to the common father of mankind, Noach. After the universal deluge, Noach’s family settled in the plain of the land of Shinar, where they multiplied into many families. The genealogy of Noach aka the Table of the 70 Nations, through his sons Shem, Cham, and Yaphet, prepares the reader for the event which led to the division of the one human race into 70 nations with distinct languages and cultures. Those 70 nations were then scattered over the face of the earth by the means of the confusion of their common language after their attempt to build the Tower of Bavel in the land of Shinar. In this introduction to our survey, we would like to clarify certain ideas that the traditional Jewish commentators have touched upon and much has been written on. But here we will also try to show that the question of the 70 nations is far from being conclusive and hope to provide a revised reading of the Table of Nations. Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 24 October 2022: What was it before the Creation, before even Gen 1:1 has begun? Before the creation, there was nothing; nothing existed but the Everlasting One, YHVH. Before the process of creation has even begun, YHVH (His Name means “He who exists continually”) was Yachid, the only One, no one else; after the creation He became Echad, He and His creation are together, one or unity. Yachid is exclusive; Echad is inclusive. We will rewind the time and try to explain what it was before the Creation. Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 16 October 2022: Much is known of the involvement of the tribe of Levi in the Temple service and reverence for YHVH. Traditional commentators offer extended explanations of the Levites’ role in the Temple, but very little of Binyamin and the sanctuary. In the following, we would like to posit another way to look at the youngest son of the patriarch, Binyamin, and specifically in reference to his merit to have the Temple built on the land of his tribe. We will explore the connection of Binyamin and the Temple in the context of the story of his father, Ya’akov, a story that poses new reading for the careful reader. Everything began with the flight of Ya’akov from the house of Lavan, his father-in-law. Read more
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 11 October 2022: There is strong belief that “the great sound of the shofar” (in Mat 24:31), “the great shofar that shall blow” (in Isa 27:13), and the seventh [and the last] trumpet in the Book of Revelation are one and the same. But while they all depict the coming of the Savior on the clouds of the heaven with a great host and with dreadful appearance, and the establishment of the Kingship of the Messiah, they do not connect this awesome event to any particular day. Is there any evidence that the coming of King Messiah can be anticipated on a particular day of the year? We have Scriptural proof of this in the Book of Psalms. Read more
