"And I fell at his feet to worship him.  And he said to me, don't do that!  I am your fellow servant,

and of your brethren that have the testimony of Yeshua!  Worship Elohim! 

For the Testimony of Yeshua is the Spirit of Prophecy"

Revelations 19:10

 

Part 1: The Testimony of Yeshua

 

     The dictionary defines "Testimony" as a declaration given under oath, and as:

 

a) The stone tablets inscribed with the Law of Moses

b) The ark containing these tablets.

 

     The word "testimonies" is the Hebrew word Eduyot which specifically refers to the Word of YHWH spoken to Moshe. 

The Hebrew word ED or "witness" first occurs in 'Genesis 31:44:

 

"Now therefore come, let us make a covenant, I and you; and let it be for an ED (witness) between me and you.  And Ya'akov took a stone, and set it up for a pillar.  And Ya'akov said unto his brethren, Gather stones; and they took stones, and made a heap: and they did eat there upon the heap.  And Laban called it Jegarsahadutha (The heap of witness, Chaldee) but Jacob called it GaleED (The heap of witness, Hebrew)."  Genesis 31:44

 

     The Word of YHWH wrote with His Finger on tablets of stone, these tablets were placed inside the Ark of the Covenant.  Yes you did read this correctly the "Word of YHWH" wrote with His finger, the Word of YHWH and Mashiyach are one and the same.  The Word of YHWH is also the "Arm of YHWH revealed" (Isaiah 53:1), in other words everything that YHWH does in time and space is done through the Word of YHWH, HaMashiyach (the Messiah).  The Mitzvoth (Commandments) are given by YHWH as Covenant between YHWH and His people.  From the time of original sin in the Garden of Eden, "the seed of woman" has had an adversary biting at His heels, trying to cause him to stumble.  Genesis 3:5:

 

"And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his Eikev (heel)."  Genesis 3:5

 

     YHWH spoke to hasatan saying that He would "bruise your head" indicating that hasatan's headship, leadership or position of authority had been severely diminished, but that hasatan shall "bruise his heel".  The Hebrew word Eikev is translated also as heel, last, wait or footsteps:

 

"Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that bites the horse Eikev (heels), so that his rider shall fall backward."  Genesis 49:17

 

"Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the Eikev (last)."  Genesis 49:17

 

"They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they Eikev (wait) for my soul." 

Psalm 56:6

 

"Wherewith your enemies have reproached, O YHWH; wherewith they have reproached the Eikev (footsteps) of Your anointed."  Psalm 89:51

 

     Hasatan wastes no time to reproach the footsteps of Mashiyach and all those who follow Mashiyach.  Hasatan is the author of corruption, the deceiver, a liar, a thief and the destroyer who orchestrates the common bad through direct rebellion to YHWH.  The Creator YHWH is giving His people the opportunity to know Him and choose to live in harmony with YHWH or choose to rebel against His Kingdom and follow a crowd to do evil.  The TESTIMONY of Y'shua is the WAY of YHWH which protects us from deception and counterfeit ideas and values.  Therefore the Testimony of YHWH is the revelation of the Word of YHWH which enables mankind to overcome the darkness.  The TESTIMONY of Yeshua is the standard by which mankind is able to elevate and protect human life and dignity, YHWH revealed His Justice for mankind, it has been recorded for us in Torah for well over 3,000 years, this is not an arbitrary standard that allows each man to do what is right in his own eyes.  The Testimony of Yeshua is clearly defined, the Word of YHWH revealed the Torah to Moshe, and confirmed it throughout history by the Prophets of YHWH. 

 

Herein lies the work of a True Prophet of YHWH,

for the Testimony of Yeshua is the Spirit of Prophecy!

 

     The Word of YHWH is revealed in Yeshua HaMashiyach who dwelt among us:

 

"And the Miltha* (WORD) became flesh and dwelt among us and we saw His glory, the glory as the Ekhadaya (The One) who is from the Father who is full of grace and truth."  John 1:14

 

     Yeshua HaMashiyach came to bring the Testimony of YHWH and make a Covenant with us by writing Torah on our hearts.  As we receive His Spirit, and allow the Torah to be written upon our hearts we have His Testimony abiding in us.  This is how we are overcomers, by having the Torah in our inward parts we know what is expected and required of us.

 

"And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.  And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our Elohim, and the power of his Mashiyach: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our Elohim day and night.  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death."  Revelation 12:9-11

 

     And again we read that those who have the testimony of Yeshua are they who keep the commandments of YHWH!

 

"And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of YHWH, and have the testimony of Yeshua HaMashiyach."  Revelations 12:17

 

     If we keep the commandments of YHWH, and have the Testimony of Yeshua HaMashiyach then we are "the remnant of her seed", this is the original plan revealed in the Gan Eden.  It is our time now to let the Ruach HaKodesh write Torah upon our hearts and speak out to others that the Testimony of Yeshua is the Spirit of Prophecy

 

Part 2: The Spirit of Prophecy

 

     The Testimony of Yeshua is clearly Torah, Yeshua is the Word of YHWH who came in the flesh.  We must remember that the anti-messiah propagates religious ideals to make void the Torah, regardless of whether it's within Christianity, Judaism, Islam or any other religious ideology hasatan is mainly interested in bring Torah to nothing.  False prophets are everywhere who claim to have the spirit of prophecy, but these follow along with anti-Torah and anti-Mashiyach values, this is how we can easily differentiate between true and false prophets.

     The Spirit of Prophecy does not come to mankind by degrees, or by formulating ideas and religious models, it comes about by revelation and application of the Word of YHWH.  The Spirit of Prophecy provides individual empowerment to refrain from violation of Torah.  The Spirit of Prophecy is not about foretelling the future or being healed from sickness, the many signs and wonders are evidence that Yeshua is HaMashiyach and that Torah is Truth.  Signs and wonders are meant to point the Way to the Kingdom of Elohim and give us confidence that we are on the right path.  When the signs and wonders became a goal in themselves it brings great confusion, the adversary is very capable of doing his own signs and wonders, smoke and mirrors.  The adversary does not bring people to know Yeshua and write Torah upon their hearts, the work of the adversary is to keep people entrapped within a religious formula that prohibits them from having Torah written upon their hearts.

     Many well meaning people claim to have the Spirit of Prophecy but propagate anti-Torah values as it was taught them by their peers.  The Spirit of Prophecy is the Testimony of Yeshua, the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) writes the Torah upon our Hearts and confirms His Word in us.  The seed of YHWH delights in His Torah, celebrates Shabbat, the Moedim on their appointed times, and sanctifies life in Truth according to the Ancient Paths.  YHWH changes not, however religion is constantly changing, false prophets teach their little "light is getting brighter", but it's never been a matter of man's light getting brighter, it's a matter of YHWH's children seeking the Light of Mashiyach.  The Word of YHWH is the Light to our Path, the Word of YHWH is Torah.

 

     The Spirit of Prophecy is meant for ALL those who seek the Kingdom of Elohim, not for just a few aristocrat type leaders.

 

"And Moses said unto him, do you envy for my sake?  Elohim would rather that all YHWH's people were prophets, and that YHWH would put His Spirit upon all of them!"  Numbers 11:29

 

"And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:  And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit."  Joel 2:28-29

 

     The Spirit of Prophecy does not endorse any religious denomination as the Kingdom of Elohim is universal, the Spirit of Prophecy points to Yeshua and Torah and the Malchut (Kingdom) of Elohim.  The institutions of men oppose the Spirit of Prophecy, these usurp the common good from people to engage in religious dealings, finance personal agendas, the result is rivalry, oppression and dead rotting works.  The Spirit of Prophecy makes a Way for people to be free of religion and false teachings, a relationship with the Father will produce life abundantly without compromise.

 

YHWH be with you,

Baruch Ben Daniel
