    Thank you for a great message. This past week I have been studying about the tree of knowledge. I believe it was a fig tree that some how was genetically modified when Adam let down his guard. The word for figs is tav-aleph-nun-hey. If you remove the hey you get the word tav-aleph-nun, This word means naughtiness according to Strongs and self deception according to Benners Hebrew Lexicon. Were not Adam and Eve self deceived that they would be like YHWH if they ate the fruit ? Another question is why did Yeshua curse the fig tree 3 days prior to Calvary ? Was he informing Satan your control is about to come to an end for those who choose salvation. What about Nathanael being under the fig tree before being chosen by the Messiah ? I appreciate your teaching, Your Torah portions are very educational.

    • Bill says:

      Paul; glad you are enjoying the portions. As far as your questions, I have believed that the reasons Y’shua cursed the fig tree was because a) it didn’t produce fruit which undermines God’s purpose for the tree b) the leaves sent the message it was producing fruit (form of godliness denying the power thereof) and c) fig leaves were what Adam and Eve used to cover their nakedness after partaking of the forbidden fruit. That may have nothing to do with it but that’s my thought. Shalom.

    Shalom…

    They that are born in the strength of a youthful womb are of one fashion, and they which are born in the time when the womb is of age are of another..

    Just as fire cannot forget it’s virtue, neither can the Sons of God, though they may seek to try; and men which have lived dissolutely and unrighteously God will torment them with their own abominations.
    The righteous which are dead, shall condemn the ungodly which are living.

    Those who desire a more “heavenly mystical attribute” applied to the Bible so as to enhance their version of God, Angels, demon spirits, and “Beautiful Women”, do so because they are drawn by their own carnality and are void of Wisdom..

    After all; What a great love story: an Angelic Being falling for a beautiful Human Woman…
    Can you say: Harlequin Novel ? How about 50 shades of Angelic Love ?

    To this I say; PATHETIC.

    The inner parts of a fool are like a broken vessel, and will hold no Knowledge as long as they live…

    Gold is tried in the fire, and acceptable men in the “Furnace of Adversity”.

    I concur, the Sons of God are only defined by obedience…

    Shalom

    Shalom Aleichem!
    Please take this to heart with the intent it is given!
    You are a good teacher of a lot of YHVH’s Word. I’m sure you study diligently as the Lord reveals truth through you. There is one teaching I can help you with…
    The church at Laodicea , YHWH’s people, is being compared to its neighbors, the world, on its impact to mankind. The neighbors to the north have a “hot” spring that also has a mineral content combining to help soothe muscles and hydrate skin. The southern neighbors are located close to the river and are known for their “cold” water that is good to drink and quench thirst.
    Our Messiah picks up on this comparison to Laodicea who has neither a way to help their fellow man by soothing muscles nor quenching thirst as they are located miles from the river, their aqueduct delivers to them “lukewarm” water which is good for neither use. They were known for having water that would make you sick to your stomach because of its temperature.
    Because they situated their town where they could be self sufficient making eye salve and raising expensive black sheep, they neglected a primary, basic need; water, so they could get rich with gold and money and not have to rely on the Roman Empire to help them the way their neighbors did. They weren’t relying on Yeshua either so He told them They were poor, naked, and blind.
    I find no evidence in scripture where Our Father ever wants His people to be “cold” toward Him. I submit that you won’t find that connotation in the Greek or Hebrew language. Only in American culture. It is only an idiom to Americans. Being “hot” or “on fire” for Yeshua is not something the people of Laodicea, or any other culture of that day would understand.
    I hope this helps to correct an error that most all of our generation were taught and have taught ourselves and when the scripture is read:” surely our fathers have inherited lies…” It won’t be by our sons!
    I pray this isn’t harsh or demeaning as I have taught so wrong for so long, I don’t want a fellow teacher to do the same.
    May YHWH continue to speak in and through you mightily!
    Your Brother,
    Jeff

    • Bill says:

      Jeff; I really appreciate the information – very interesting. Still, I believe there is merit to what I said. Of course our Father doesn’t wish for us to be cold toward Him but He doesn’t want us to be lukewarm either. So what do you make of the statement by Elijah “if the LORD is God, serve Him but if Ba’al, serve Him”? Is this not a provocation to make up your mind who you will serve? Likewise, when Joshua said:

      “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom all of you will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land all of you dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”

      Is this not a provocation to make up your mind one way or the other?

      I contend that is exactly what Messiah was saying to Laodicea – make up your mind which way you’re going to go but being lukewarm is not acceptable.

      Thanks again for the info and your comment. Blessings and shalom.

      • Jeff Miller says:

        Bill,
        I only am replying to you as I believe you are a genuinely gifted teacher of the scriptures and “as iron sharpens iron” I want to help. We, in this movement, need your teaching desperately to bring clarity to the truth! Thank you for your “leaning” on the Spirit’s understanding.
        I submit to you that Yeshua was not giving an “either or” as in your two cited examples. They weren’t choosing between the LORD and some other “lord.” They were choosing self reliance and selfishness over YHWH!
        They structured themselves geographically to be further from the river in order to gain wealth to maintain their self reliance. When earthquakes affected their region, they were the only city to refuse Romes’ help and rebuild all by themselves. But they ONLY helped themselves. They didn’t have a nice warm soak to help their neighbor or even a drink of cool water. They did not “plant themselves” by the stream of living water to even get assistance there. They made expensive clothes from the black wool indigenous to their area to sell for profit and eye salve to heal and medicate that they sold for wealth; but they were not wealthy in G_ds eyes, they were poor, naked, and blind.
        There are so many teachings that go hand in hand with this that I have learned from you regarding hospitality, poor, blind… That I thought YHWH had revealed this also.
        I have found in my own walk that I have a lot of the “church” doctrines still plaguing me every time I open my mouth to teach that I wonder:” will I be teaching more revelations of the Spirit or apologizing for doctrines I have taught before.”
        I pray blessings on you and maybe our paths will cross as I live in the mountains of Western NC.
        Blessings and Shalom from His and your student!

        • Jeff Miller says:

          BYW, I’m writing this from my hot tub and have a cold glass of water and a lukewarm cup of coffee next to me… You think that means something?…

        • Bill says:

          Thanks for the comment Jeff and, yes, I’ll take your points into consideration. I guess sometimes when iron sharpens iron a spark or two might flare up. It’s our duty as a body to make sure those sparks don’t start a fire. Shalom brother.

  4. Chuck Peterson says:

    I like how you, Jim, brought up the water in the “Lukewarm” scripture- though, not in scripture. It is important not to just read, but to study scripture, background and context. Water is full of meaning in the land and in scripture. I have come to see water as the hearing of the Word, living water as the living the Word (Yeshua), rushing water as obedience to the Word, stagnant water as hearing the Word but not obeying, putrid water as mixing the Word and bitter obedience to it’s lies. Hot water, I have not thought to study. I cannot remember many references to hot springs.

    To consider myself to be lukewarm is frighteningly humiliating! So I must go before my Maker and ask Him to take any residue of lukewarm out of me and examine myself again and again. Ann

  5. Mary Mumper says:

    Bill, such a diplomatic but direct response.

    Jeff, don’t overlook PARDES. Getting away from the literal meaning is almost always a mistake. While there can be additional meanings that can be gleaned, the literal one is still valid unless the Bible specifically says it’s a parable or an alternate meaning. Find all the allegories you want that meet Biblical standards, but don’t dismiss the literal meaning.

    Pardes refers to (types of) approaches to biblical exegesis in rabbinic Judaism or to interpretation of text in Torah study. The term, sometimes also spelled PaRDeS, is an acronym formed from the name initials of the following four approaches:

    Peshat (פְּשָׁט) — “surface” (“straight”) or the literal (direct) meaning.[1]
    Remez (רֶמֶז) — “hints” or the deep (allegoric: hidden or symbolic) meaning beyond just the literal sense.
    Derash (דְּרַשׁ) — from Hebrew darash: “inquire” (“seek”) — the comparative (midrashic) meaning, as given through similar occurrences.
    Sod (סוֹד) (pronounced with a long O as in ‘sore’) — “secret” (“mystery”) or the esoteric/mystical meaning, as given through inspiration or revelation.
    Each type of Pardes interpretation examines the extended meaning of a text. As a general rule, the extended meaning never contradicts the base meaning. The Peshat means the plain or contextual meaning of the text. Remez is the allegorical meaning. Derash includes the metaphorical meaning, and Sod represents the hidden meaning.

    God bless you both. Shalom, Mary.
