Bereshit (Beginnings)

Throughout this site, you'll see certain words referenced in Hebrew, the language of the Most High, Creator of all.  You'll notice that we reference the Most High as יהוה or Elohiym. We recognize that other Yisraelite/Yahshar'el assemblies may use other terms such as Yah or Yahuwah. We agree with those alternative names. However, we do not want to get hung up on technicalities. The goal of this site is to help educate those coming out of traditional Church and the lies that were taught to cause us to forget who we are. (Psalm 84:1-4)

Before beginning or continuing your journey to Yah's truth, it's important that you PRAY. Pray to the Most High for understanding; to further open your eyes to his Kingdom.

 

As more and more Yisraelites are awakening to their true identity as the Hebrews of the Holy Bible, many of our brothers and sisters ask where they can start reading the Bible. While it makes sense to start at the beginning in Bereshit or Genesis, it's also recommended to start with the Torah blueprint for righteousness commonly known as the Ten Commandments or Aseret ha'Dibrot. This covenant appears in 2 different places in the Torah:  Debarim (Deuteronomy) 5:6-17 and Shemoth (Exodus) 20:2-13.

YAHUWAH, our Elohim made a covenant with us speaking to Moshe (Moses) on Mt. Horeb:

Ten Commandments/Aseret ha'Dibrot
Debarim (Deuteronomy) 5

Shemoth (Exodus) 20:2-13

Verse 5: (I stood between יהוה and you at that time, to shew you the word of the יהוה: for ye were afraid by reason of the fire, and went not up into the mount;) saying,

Verse 6: I am the יהוה thy Elohiym, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

Verse 7: (Commandment 1) Thou shalt have none other gods before me.

Verse 8: (Commandment 2)  Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:

 

Verse 9: Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the יהוה thy Elohiym am a jealous Elohiym, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,

 

Verse 10: And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments. 

 

Verse 11: (Commandment 3) Thou shalt not take the name of the יהוה thy Elohiym in vain: for יהוה will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

 

Verse 12: (Commandment 4) Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as t יהוה thy Elohiym hath commanded thee.

 

Verse 13: Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work:

 

Verse 14: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the יהוה thy Elohiym in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.

 

Verse 15: And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the יהוה thy Elohiym brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore the יהוה thy Elohiym commanded thee to keep the sabbath day.

 

Verse 16: (Commandment 5) Honor thy father and thy mother, as the יהוה thy Elohiym hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the יהוה thy Elohiym giveth thee.

 

Verse 17: (Commandment 6) Thou shalt not kill.

 

Verse 18: (Commandment 7) Neither shalt thou commit adultery.

 

Verse 19: (Commandment 8) Neither shalt thou steal.

 

Verse 20: (Commandment 9) Neither shalt thou bear false witness against thy neighbor.

 

Verse 21: (Commandment 10 ) Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbor's wife, neither shalt thou covet thy neighbor's house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is thy neighbor's.

 

Verse 22: These words the יהוה spake unto all your assembly in the mount out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: and he added no more. And he wrote them in two tables of stone, and delivered them unto me.

Shalom!
