“Crises make people choose. When people choose, they take sides. When they take sides, they set themselves apart for doing their will. God sets everyone in a situation to make a choice. It is Time of Division. Time of Reckoning”. (Navah on Deu 30:19)

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 22 February 2024: How does the Google Ngram Viewer answer the question: Who are the people who call themselves today “Palestinians?
Who are the people, who live in the land on both sides of the Jordan River, and where did they come from? And where did the Edomites (the brothers of the Israelites, who lived on the eastern side of the Jordan before them) go? Another question that is almost forced upon us is: Who are the people today, who call themselves “Palestinians”, and where did they come from, for we find no such ancient people in the annals? The Google Ngram may provide the answer.
The Google Ngram Viewer or Google Books Ngram Viewer is an online search engine that charts the frequencies of any set of words found in printed sources published between 1500 and 2019 in English, Chinese, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Russian, and Spanish. When a word phrase such as “Palestinians” is entered into the Google Ngram Viewer, it can be seen that “Palestinians” began appearing only after WWI when the British Mandate over the Middle East territories of the former Ottoman Empire was established. Back then all people living in the British Mandate were called “Palestinians”: Arabs, Jews, Bedouins alike. “Palestinian people”, as a political term, appears in Google Ngram Viewer with its peak after the Yom Kippur War in 1973, when the Soviets created it in retaliation of the humiliating defeat of their proxies in the war.
So, how did the tiny sliver of land the Eternal gave to His people become “Palestina” and then “Palestine”, and who are the people called “Palestinians”?

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 22 February 2024: Every year, in the last month of the year, we remind the readers to recall the true story of the Jewish holiday of Purim. Purim along with Chanukah are not among the established holidays of the Creator in Leviticus 23. Nevertheless, it has its own place in the history of Israel to teach us a lesson. What lesson? The Babylonian Talmud states: “Anyone who dwells in the Land of Israel is like one who has God, and anyone who dwells outside the Land is like one who has no God”. It was known that the Babylonian Exile would last for seventy years, according to the prophecy in Jeremiah. But how many of the Jews returned to the homeland? The Roman exiled ended in 1948 at the moment the first prime minister of Israel, Ben Gurion, announced that the State of Israel had been established. But how many of the Jews returned? And this is the lesson the King of the Khazars taught a rabbi. Read more.
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 18 February 2024: We live in a world timed between the revelation of the Eternal at Sinai and giving the Covenant and the revelation of Melech ha-Mashiach (King Messiah) at the end of the sixth millennium. In Judaism, the Resurrection of the Dead and the Messianic Era in the seventh millennium are considered the culmination and fulfillment of Creation with the revelation of the light of the Eternal in this material world. And if we are in the culmination of the fulfillment of the Eternal’s plan, we need to heed the following. Read more.
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 5 February 2024: The word mazal is often translated as “luck” or “fortune” as in the phrase mazal tov or mazel tov with the meaning of “good luck” or “good fortune”. As such, mazal tov is similar in usage to the word “Congratulations!” According to this translation, the phrase mazal tov or mazel tov is seen as good luck, something that happens by chance. But is this the intention of the phrase? For there is no such a thing as good or bad luck in the Hebrew Scripture, for there is no Hebrew word for luck. Nothing happens by accident or coincidence. The literal translation of the word mazal means a constellation of stars, also planets. This word appears in the Hebrew Scripture as mazzalah, which means a constellation, as it is found only in … Read more.
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 31 January 2024: The rabbis teach that the Eternal gave Mosheh other teachings and revelations aka the Oral Law, which he did not write down but transmitted orally to the children of Israel. These orally transmitted laws were eventually written down in the Mishnah and interpreted in the Gemara. The Mishnah and Gemara constitute the Talmud. According to the rabbis, “the Oral Law” had been given to Mosheh orally at Mount Sinai (hence, “Oral Law”), which he did not write in the Torah but handed it down to Yehoshua and the seventy elders. According to the rabbis, these oral laws of the Mishnah have the same authority as the five books of Mosheh (the Torah). When the rabbis speak of “Torah”, they mean both torahs: the written Torah (the five books Mosheh wrote) and the Oral Torah. Read more.
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 16 January 2024: In the narrative of Genesis, we find that Hagar was an Egyptian, a handmaid of Sarah, Avraham’s wife. We derive this from the plain reading of Genesis 16:1. However, according to the Rabbinic tradition, which is not well established, Hagar was Pharaoh’s daughter from a concubine, whom he gave as a compensation for having wronged Avram (Pirkei DeRabbi Eliezer 26:7). Pirkei DeRabbi Eliezer (Chapters of Rabbi Eliezer) is a midrash (interpretation) that retells and expands upon the biblical narrative, from the beginning of the Book of Genesis through the story of Miriam’s leprosy in the Book of Numbers. Based on the oral tradition, Targum Jonathan, renders Genesis 16:1 thus, … Read more.
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 8 January 2024: Yoseph was the first Israelite to become enslaved. In the issue of who sold Yoseph to slavery, there is a common mistake made when it is asserted that it was his brothers who sold him, for the Torah appears to blame the sale of Yoseph to slavery to them, based on Yoseph’s accusations of having sold him to Egypt in Gen 45:4. The story of Yoseph’s troubles began with Ya’akov sending Yoseph to visit his brothers who attended their father’s sheep. Careful reading of the text, however, draws a different picture of what happened in the wilderness. So, who sold Yoseph to slavery? Although most commentators have already treated this matter exhaustively blaming Yoseph’s brothers, we will answer this question in a new reading of the story offering a different interpretation.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 25 December 2023: Why did He create a man and a woman from the flesh of the man, and then He commanded them to become one again and procreate? After the Eternal YHVH created Adam and Chavah, He could have continued creating the next generation of humans in the same fashion He created the first human, from the dust of the earth, or He could have created the whole human race at once. But He did not. He told them to be fruitful and multiply to fill the earth. Why? And why did He not create many Adams and Chavahs as He created many animals of one species? It is the object of this work to seek the answers to this question: Why did the Creator tell the man and woman to procreate? Read more.
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 19 December 2023: There is strong evidence in the Apostolic Writings to suggest that the observance of the laws in the Torah plays a crucial role in one’s standing before YHVH Elohim. This is contrary to what is widely believed and accepted in the Christendom that the “Law of God has been abolished, superseded at the cross or in some way set aside by dispensation. But that compels us to consider the question: if that is the intention of the Creator, why is that not made explicit in the context of the Torah and the Prophets? Because this is quite astounding that the Torah has failed to mention this detail? Read more.
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 14 December 2023 (originally published in 2017, now updated): Christmas is considered one of the holiest if not the holiest day in the Christian calendar of the western Church. Many Christians around the world celebrated the birth of Christ on Christmas Day, the 25 of December. While Christmas is believed to be the day of the birth of Christ, there are strong arguments in the Scripture that this is not the case. Christmas Day is a public holiday in many nations that is celebrated religiously by many Christians and culturally by many non-Christians alike. The Christmas season is also the busiest commercial season for retailers in the western world. However, the 25th of December is a day claimed … Read more.
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 5 December 2023: How could Mosheh have known what had taken place from the Creation of the world to the end of the Book Genesis?” The creation of the heavens and the earth, the stars and everything visible and invisible in the universe, was a colossal event no man has ever witnessed. The story of Adam and Chavah who sinned by accessing the knowledge of good and evil, the Flood and all detailed description of the ark, the Tower of Bavel: all of this would have been unknown to Mosheh without revelation from heaven by someone who had recounted all these stories for Mosheh. Without this revelation from heaven, we would not have known these events either. Read more.
Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 27 November 2023: Rachel and Leah engaged in a difficult contest for the heart of their husband Ya’akov and for the position of first wife in the family. In the article Leah—The Mother of the Covenant Nation, we present to the reader the story of rivalry between the sisters from Leah’s point of view. The story of wife who felt unloved and unwanted. It would be therefore advantageous for the reader to study what we have said in that article. In the following continuation of the foresaid article, however, we will present the same story from Rachel’s perspectives and how she might have felt in her constant struggle to bear children to his beloved husband Ya’akov. We will try to show that the question of rivalry between Rachel and Leah is far from being easy to solve, and this being the case we leave the question open on which side the priority lies. We now turn again to the contest between the matriarchs, who built up a nation, as we would like to posit another way to look at their story, specifically in reference to their reconciliation.
