Evangelist Daniel John Lee

And to the angel of the congregation in Philadelphia write -- These things says He that is holy, He that is true, He that has the Key of David, He that opens, and no man shuts, and shuts, and no man opens.  I know your works: behold, I have set before you an open door, and no man can shut it: for you have a little strength, and have kept My Word, and have not denied My Name . . ."


Eidetic Torah

Have you ever considered how edietic Torah really is?

In fact, this is why YHVH has given us Torah, to paint a very visual reminder in our hearts and minds of the RIGHT path beause He knows it is so very easy for us to get caught up in the imaginations of our hearts. We are eidetic type creatures, because Yah Himself is very visual (just take a look at creation), and so He provides the Torah to keep us on the straight and narrow.

How, you might ask, is the Torah eidetic?

Each and every Hebrew Feast, from the weekly shabbat, to the monthly New Moon, to the annual Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firtsfruits, Pentecost, Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur and Tabernacles celebrations all paint very vivid pictures of who our Messiah is. Just an example would be the very visual way Passover paints a picture of YahShua, as we drain the blood from the lamb meat and then splash this blood on our door as a rehearsel for our children. How much better could this be at describing YahShua's blood atonement for us? My children certainly don't forget such a visual display.

Or, consider Tabernacles. For eight days we set this huge tabernacle/tent up that we dwell in. We're outside, under the sun, in the open air, praising and worshipping under this Tabernacle. What a visual reminder of Yah who will one day tabernacle with mankind.

Consider the dietary laws of Leviticus 11. Here we have to pack our cupboards with what is clean -- only certain kinds of foods. So our dinner table literally turns into a picture reminding us of how important it is to discern between good and bad, the clean and unclean, the profane and holy.

What about wearing the fringes of blue as commanded in Numbers 15:37? Wow, what a visual reminder of Messiah. The blue on our garmets is always there, reminding us to not go after false gods. How many times are pagan christians tempted to sin and how many times would that temptation melt if they had but a blue tassle to remind them of their holy need to stay pure before a holy Yah?

On and on we could go, showing just how visual the Torah is, all because Yah knows how very visual we humans are.

Folks, Romans 1 says the root or beginning of much sin is a lack of thanksgiving. Lack of thanksgiving or discontent usually springs from our vain imaginations of the way life should be. But if our imaginations are sanctified by Torah, covered with layers and layers of visual colors that paint who Yah really is, thanksgiving continues to bubble from our hearts and prevents us from passing into darkness.

Torah keeps us away from deception and false doctrine, such as preterism, gnosticism, Calvinism, and many other isms. It keeps us and forces us into Yah's Holy Word on a literal moment-by-moment basis.

Fact is, when you keep every jot and tittle of Torah, when you wrap it around your heart and mind and DO all the commandments of life, you WILL NOT fall into sin. How can you? You are literally steeped in the very essence of what is NOT sin.
