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

Can the Rabbis Err and Lead the People Astray?

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

“He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, but he did not open his mouth”. Agnus Dei (the lamb of God), Francisco de Zurbarán, 1640

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 14 August 2022: It may come as a surprise to many that the Torah recognizes the possibility of a situation in which the Rabbis can err and thus lead many to sin. We will address this question in the following vein and leave the conclusion to the reader’s consideration. Read more


Orpah and Ruth: The Stories of Two Gentiles

Naomi Entreating Ruth and Orpah to Return to the Land of Moab, William Blake, 1795.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 7 August 2022: We will explore in the following vein the story of Orpah and Ruth, the daughters-in-law of Naomi, a story that poses a challenge for the careful reader. The matter will become clear once we understand why Orpah is included in the story in which Ruth is the main character. This will give us a better understanding of the Book of Ruth, the stories of two gentiles: Orpah and Ruth. This work has also a second object, which we will leave for the reader’s consideration at the end of our study. Read more


The Hebrew versus the English Concept of Murder

The Covenant

The Covenant of YHVH

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 31 July 2022: In English, a very clear distinction exists between murder and manslaughter. The legal term “murder” is defined as an unlawful premeditated killing of a human being by a human being, wherein “killing” is the act of terminating a human life. The English translations of the Tanak render the Sixth Commandment of the Covenant by using the English words “murder” or “kill”: “Thou shalt not murder” (JPS), and “Thou shalt not kill” (KJV). These English words are mistakenly taken to have two different meaning, i.e., to murder is considered to take life intentionally, while to kill is to cause to die unintentionally.

Bil’am: The Diviner and Wild Dog of the Nations

Balaam and his Ass, Pieter Lastman, 1622, Israel Museum, Jerusalem

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 17 July 2022: Bil’am the diviner is considered the prophet of the nations and the celebrated soothsayer of Mesopotamia. He had the reputation of being able both to bless and curse with great success for his employers and for his personal gain. Some have regarded Bil’am as a diviner, who was compelled by Elohim against his will to give utterance of blessings upon Israel instead of curses. Others have supposed him to be a true prophet, on account of the blessing he bestowed upon Israel, but who simply fell through covetousness and ambition. Indeed, Bil’am even though was a diviner was not without a certain measure of the true knowledge of Elohim; he even confessed YHVH to be his own Elohim. But was He? Read more


The Good Shepherd vs the Hireling

A good shepherd cares much for his sheep. If a sheep goes astray, it endangers itself and the flock. To save the sheep the shepherd has to snap its leg and fasten it with a band. Since the sheep cannot walk, the good shepherd has to carry it on his shoulders until the leg heals.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 9 July 2022: The term “hireling”, as used by the Good Shepherd in the Gospel of John, suggests “one who speaks the Word of Elohim for pay”, or the so-called “professional priesthood” of today, as they call themselves. These hirelings (bishops, pastors, reverends, and TV evangelists) teach that they are entitled to receive the money of the laymen, but are they? The apostles taught and practiced exactly what the Good Shepherd, Yeshua the Messiah, had taught them about the hireling, namely, that no monetary gain was to be asked for teaching the Gospel.

Why Mosheh Did Not Enter the Promised Land

Poussin, Nicolas – Moses Striking Water from the Rock – 1649

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 2 July 2022: Mosheh the greatest statesman Israel ever had was not allowed to enter the Promised Land. The reason was that Mosheh did not speak to the rock, as YHVH told him, but he struck it with his rod. Why was that a sin to Mosheh that it merited such a punishment? Let us suspend this question for a moment and raise another challenge: we find two quite different stories concerning the attempt of Israel to enter the Land of Promise: one in Numbers and another one in Deuteronomy. They differ in their accounts as to who had sent the twelve “spies” to scout the land of Kana’an. Read more


The Ancient of Days and His Manifested Presence

Ancient of Days high above the throne of sapphire (Ezekiel)

The Ancient of Days high above the throne of sapphire in Daniel and Ezekiel’s visions.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 23 June 2022: The prophets Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel saw someone seated on a heavenly throne in their visions. While Isaiah gives no description of the Eternal, and Ezekiel and Daniel describe Him having corporeal features, it is Daniel who identifies Him by calling Him the Ancient of Days. And it is Daniel who was given to see another one in a vision whom he called the Son of Man. Whom or what did the prophets see? Read more


When the Pharisees Sat on the Seat of Mosheh

The Seat of Mosheh the Pharisees sat upon was an actual seat of authority.

The Seat of Mosheh the Pharisees sat upon was an actual seat of authority.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 12 June 2022: There was a time in the first century Judea, when the Pharisees usurped upon the domain of the Levites and the judges, and a new term was largely used to denote the authority the Pharisees usurped: “the Seat of Mosheh”, as it appears in the opening of Chapter 23 of Matthew. But what does “the Seat of Mosheh” mean because the text goes on to include even the command to do whatever the Pharisees say? One cannot argue that if the Messiah has told us to observe and do whatever the Pharisees demand from us, we must do. And let this not be a cause of wonder to us, for it is indeed written, “whatever they say to you to observe, observe and do”. But let us suspend this question for a moment and raise another problem: why did the Messiah so severely condemn the Pharisees for sitting on the Seat of Mosheh, i.e., sitting on his authority, since he has told us to obey them?

The Parable of the Oak Tree

There is hope for a tree, if it is cut down, that it does sprout again, and that its tender branch does not cease. Though its root grows old in the earth, and its stump dies in the ground, at the scent of water it buds.

There is hope for a tree, if it is cut down, that it does sprout again, and that its tender branch does not cease. Though its root grows old in the earth, and its stump dies in the ground, at the scent of water it buds.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 30 May 2022: In a non-Hebraic culture, the word “trust” often has an abstract idea which not always reflects its true Hebraic meaning. Once this meaning is understood in its proper context, it opens the eyes to see its true meanings from Hebraic perspectives. But when you are in doubt or in despair, what is there left for you to do?

The Reckoning of 1335 Days in Daniel

Jerusalem. Aerial view of the Temple Mount and the Muslim shrine the Dome of the Rock. What is the difference between “Dome of the Rock”, ‘Templum Domini”, and the Temple? The attitude.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 25 May 2022: Traditional commentators offer various interpretations of the cryptic reckoning of the 1335 days in the Book of Daniel. But in this second work on the subject of the reckoning of time, we will offer a different view, as we will explain in the following. It is the object of this work to seek the answers to the questions we set in the preceding article. This work has also a second object to find a reasonable explanation of certain obscure passages in Daniel concerning the reckoning of the 1335 days. With that said, we do not ask the reader to substitute our judgment for his or her own. The reader has therefore to expect that the matters discussed in the continuation of this work are subject to interpretation based on logical thinking. Read more


The Abomination of Desolation as Reckoned in Daniel

Blessed is he who awaits and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days. The reckoning is running out of time.

Blessed is he who awaits and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days. The reckoning is running out of time.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 18 May 2022: The abomination of desolation as spoken and reckoned in Daniel makes this book different from the writings of the other prophets. The prophecies in this book are not prophetic addresses to Israel or the nations, but enigmatic visions partially unveiled in such a way that they still perplex the readers today. The whole prophetic part of the Book of Daniel is obscure. It gives neither measure for the “time, times and half a time” nor for “days” and thus no clear understanding of what exactly the visions convey. Hence, it leaves undefined when all these visions will take place. Thus, the reader is left with more questions than answers, and therefore, with variety of interpretations concerning the durations of the prophetic events and with difficulties in placing them in the correct chronological order.

Law, Order, Judges, and Police in the Bible

Sanhedrin of judges and the law-enforcement police in the Bible

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 8 May 2022: Civil order in a society rests upon a righteous judicial system of judges established by a constitution, and an impartial administration of justice established by competent police that ensures respect to the laws. The political system with elections and rule by majority, as we call it today “democracy”, was unknown to the Torah. Even the first king of Israel, Shaul, was not elected by the people but chosen by YHVH Elohim. But today there is “democracy” and the separation between the executive and judicial branches of the government, and even separation of the government from the Creator.

“Our Fathers Have Inherited Only Lies!”

A Torah scroll. Will the nations learn the ways of YHVH?

A Torah scroll. Will the nations learn the ways of YHVH?

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 30 April 2022: Who made this confession: “Our fathers have inherited only lies” and why? While most of the commentators consider them to be the heathen nations, who will come to the faith of the true Elohim, what should give us pause, however, is that this interpretation is problematic. This interpretation fails to explicitly mention what would make the heathens convert so quickly. Moreover, those interpreters who advance this view are under the necessity of explaining another term we find in the Scripture: “the completeness of the nations”. Read more


Why the Pharisaic Trail of Yeshua Was Illegitimate

Had Yeshua been brought before the Great Sanhedrin of 71 judges, where Nikodemus and the other Pharisees, who believed in Yeshua can could have been found, the outcome of the trial must have been quite different, as it was the case of Shaul.

Had Yeshua been brought before the Great Sanhedrin of 71 judges, where Nikodemus and the other Pharisees, who believed in Yeshua, could have been found, the outcome of the trial must have been quite different, as it was the case of Shaul.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 28 April 2022: Was the Pharisaic trial of Yeshua illegitimate? In this introduction to the subject, we would like to clarify presently the fateful trial that much has been written on, but still some legal issues have not been perceived. In order to clarify these legal issues in their entirety, we must initially make some inquiries in the Rabbis’ own words: the Mishnah, or the so-called “the Oral Law”. In this study we will focus on how the Rabbis had broken their own rules making the trial of Yeshua illegitimate, even according to the Mishnah. This work may be a good departure point for the faithful reader not only to delve into the issues on the legitimacy of the trial of Yeshua but also to use it as a solid foundation to establish good arguments in possible disputes.
