  Modern psychology assumes that   law without love leads to rebellion. The Heavenly Father has revealed His Love and Laws to mankind and they  continually disobey and rebel. The missing ingredient in the human heart is Faith. Faith is more than just believing that there is some kind of god or spiritual power or personal perception of love. Faith is based on a Covenant agreement that requires both parties to fulfill their commitments and promises. There is only One Eternal Covenant that the Heavenly Father makes with the descendants of Adam and Eve. That One Covenant is continually Renewed with each person that begins a relationship agreement through Faith in the Heavenly Father's Word of Truth. The Covenant agreement states that Yehawah Eloheyem loves those who love Him and keep His commandments.
  Yehawah's Faithfulness assures that obedience leads to blessings and life. Disobedience will lead to curses and death. The Word of Truth establishes One Covenant of Life or Death. There is only One Way to walk in fellowship with Yehawah and each person must choose the Covenant of Life. 
  The Father sent His Eternal Son into the physical creation as the Emmanuel promised Messiah who is the Living Word of Truth. Messiah Yeshua is the Logos the Way, Truth and Life. No one comes to the Father except through the promised Savior. Messiah Yeshua said, "if you love Me, keep my commandments, and you will abide in My Love." Messiah Yeshua did not change His Father's laws, but teaches Faithful obedience to the Covenant agreement that promises the Tree of Life.

Planting the Tree of Life

Genesis 1:26; 27; 28; 29; Jn 1:1-2; 3-5; 9-10; 11-12; 13;) On the sixth day Yehawah Eloheyem, the Eternal Father and Son completed renewing the face of the earth by forming man in His image and likeness. Yehawah established His covenant fellowship with Adam and Eve by instructing them to maintain Eloheyem's government on earth. Yehawah also, planted the Tree of Life in the newly created garden paradise. 

Marriage Covenant of Goodness

Genesis 2:7; 8; 9; 16; 17;  Yehawah Logos the Son taught Adam and Eve by identifying everything in the garden of Eden that is good for food and commanded that one tree is forbidden.
Genesis 2:22; 23; 24; Yehawah Logos formed Eve for Adam and ordained the first marriage covenant law that unites one man and one woman.
Genesis 2:2; 3;  Psa 104:30;  Yehawah established His Sabbath law on the seventh day and rested from His work of renewing His creation. 

Deadly Forbidden Fruit

Genesis 3:1-2; 3-4; 5;  The forbidden Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil cast an ominous shadow and seemed to whisper tempting mysteries of hidden fruit. Satan's spirit  deceptively promoted distrust of Yehawah's commandments and offered Eve secret knowledge that would make her wise. Satan's forbidden fruit of evil would plant the seed of division. The Adversary intended to harm the union of Yehawah's marriage covenant in Adam and Eve's hearts. 
 (Jn 8:42-43; 44; 45; 46-47; 2 Cor 11:2; 3; 
1 Tim 2:14; 15;)
Genesis 3:6; 7; Sadly, Adam and Eve sinned by disobeying Yehawah's commandment, "do not eat of the Tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil or you will die". 
( Isa 43:25-26; 27; Ho 6:7; Job 31:33; Ho 6:6; Ro 5:12; 14; 1 Cor 15:22; 45-46; 47-48; 49-50; 51;) 
Genesis 2:17; 3:19; The future consequence of death would teach mankind the serious danger of sin and lawlessness. 
(Heb 9:27; Isa 57:1; 2; Rev 20:4; 5; 6;)
Genesis 3:16; 17; 18-19; Yehawah’s Good commandments oppose Satan’s conflicting knowledge of Evil that brings suffering to Adam and Eve's family.

Promised Seed of Salvation

Genesis 3:14; 15; Yehawah promised a future savior. The Son of man, born of a woman, would crush the head of Satan and bring to an end the spiritual evil influence.
Genesis 3:21; 22; 23; Yehawah revealed that mankind's sin would cause even the innocent to suffer death. Yehawah ordained the first animal sacrifice as a way for making clothing to cover Adam and Eve's spiritual nakedness. This sacrifice of mercy look forward to the appointed time of the promised Messiah Savior's suffering and death.  Adam and Eve's devotion and love for Yehawah's goodness would now be in continual conflict against Satan's spirit of evil temptations. 
(Mt 13:35; Heb 9:22-23; 24-25; 26; Rev 5:5-6; 7-8; 9; 10; Mt 28:19; Ro 6:3; 13:14;

Spirit of the Law

Genesis 3:22;23; Yehawah's Spirit of  Goodness and Love had already established His laws of Truth that oppose every lie that Satan's spirit of evil conceives.
• 1 Yehawah will rescue mankind from enslavement to Satan's spirit of lawlessness. 
(Ge 3:15; Ex 20:1-3; Ge 18:18; 19; 22:18; 26:4; 5; Acts 3:25; Ga 3:8; 16;)
• 2 Yehawah's shows His Lovingkindness to those who love Him and keep His commandments. Yehawah; the Father and Son are the only Eternal Eloheyem Family, the Spirit of Truth. Do not worship Satan's counterfeit god, the spirit of lies. 
(Ge 2:16;17; Ex 20:5;6; Isa 14:12; 13; 14; Mt 4:3;4;)
• 3 Yehawah's judgment is against all lawlessness. 
(Ge 3:1; 14;15; Ex 20:7; Mt 4:7;)
• 4 Yehawah seventh day Sabbath is Holy.
(Ge 2:2; 3; Ex 20:8; Mt 12:7; 8; Lk 6:9;) 
• 5 Honor Yehawah our Heavenly Father.
( Ge 1:26; 27; 2:16; 17; Ex 20:12; Mal 1:6;  Mt 5:16-17; 18; 19; 45; 6:9-10; 11-12; 13-14; 15; 7:7; 8; 11-12; 13-14; 18; 20-21; 18:12; 13; 14; 23:9-10; 11-12; 1 Pe 5:5; 6; 7;)
• 6 Do not be like Satan the murderer.
(Ge 3:4; Ex 20:13; Jn 8:43; 44;)
• 7 Do not violate the marriage covenant.
(Ge 2:24; Ex 20:14: Mt 19:4-5; 6; 9;)  
• 8 Do not be like Satan who is a thief that steals the Truth of Yehawah from mankind. 
(Ge 3:2-3; 4-5; 6; 4:7; Ex 20:15; Mt 24:42; 43; 44; Lk 8:10; 11; 12; 13; 14; 15; 
Jn 10:10; 11; 1 Pe 5:8; 9; 10;)
• 9 Do not lie like Satan.
(Ge 3:4; Ex 20:16; Jn 8:43; 44; )
• 10 Do not be like Satan who once was Lucifer an angelic leader in Yehawah's Heavenly Kingdom. Now Satan coveted Adam and Eve's opportunity to eat of the Tree of Life and rule with Yehawah in His Kingdom on earth. 
(Ge 1:26; 27; 28; Ex 19:5; 6; 20:17; 
Eze 28:12-13; 14-15; 16-17; Mt 4:10; 1 Pet 2:5, 9; Rev 1:6; 5:10;) 

Bread of Affliction
(Deut 16:2; 3; Heb 12:4; 5; 6-7; 8; 9; 10; 11;)

Yehawah did not abandon Adam and Eve, but He would teach them to discern the difference between good and evil. All of the future human family must choose between Yehawah's Truth or Satan's lies.
Genesis 3:22; 24; 1 Ki 3:9; Heb 5:8-9; 13-14; Yehawah desired to save mankind from the division caused by eating of the Tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil. But now, Satan's dominion of lawlessness would bring death to all of mankind. Yehawah promised that the future Messiah will restore the, "Kingdom of Yehawah" on earth and renew " The way to the Tree of Life". 
(1 Jn 3:1; 2; 3-4; 5-6; 7; 8; Pr 3:1-2; 3-4; 5-6; 7; 11-12; 13; 15; 17-18; Heb 5:7-8; 9-10; 12:4; 5; 6-7; 8; 9; 10; 11; Rev 2:7; 21:6; 7; 22:2; 14;) 

Breath of Life

Genesis 4:1; 2;  Adam's wife Eve conceived and bore  their first son who was named Cain. Eve endured the pain of childbirth with hope that her son would be the promised savior. In painful deep breaths, Eve gave birth again to her second son Abel. 

Appointed Sacrifice

Genesis 4:3; 4; Yehawah Logos was never far away and walked with Adam and Eve's family. Adam and Eve reminded their children of Yehawah's commandments and they enjoyed the reassuring Sabbath rest with their creator. Year after year Cain and Abel witnessed their parents offering a sacrifice at the appointed time for remembering Yehawah's covering of mercy. At the time of maturity, Cain and Abel also brought a sacrifice to honor Yehawah's Lovingkindness. 
(Heb 11:4; 12:24;) Yehawah approved Abel's offering that mirrored the heart of His sacrificial Lamb. 

Lies that Devour

Genesis 4:5-6; 7; Cain's heart did not make an  offering of Thanksgiving that would please Yehawah. Yehawah attempted to lovingly help Cain learn to resist evil desires by willingly doing good. Satan's spirit of temptation was crouching at the door of Cain's heart and waiting to devour him. 
Genesis 4:8-9; 10-11; 12-13; 14; 15; 1 Jn 3:12;) Cain's jealous anger turned to vengeance as he murdered his brother Abel. Yehawah offered an opportunity for repentance by questioning Cain, "where is Abel your brother." Cain's denial brought judgment and punishment upon himself. Cain would wander far from Yehawah's heart. Cain's lawlessness spirit would  teach his children Satan's way of rebellion against Yehawah's Righteousness, Truth, and Love. 

Calling out to Yehawah

Genesis 4:25; 26; Adam and Eve were comforted  when their third son Seth was born.  Adam taught Seth to pray to Yehawah for spiritual strength to keep the  Covenant commandments and righteous laws.
Genesis 5:1-2; 3-4; Adam was created in the image of Yehawah and Seth grew up in the likeness of Adam. 

Born to be Righteous

Genesis 5:23-24; Amos 3:3; Many years later, Enoch was born in the seventh generation from Adam. Enoch became a preacher of righteousness by walking in obedience to Yehawah's Covenant commandments. Enoch listened to Eloheyem's Spirit of Truth and taught the way of righteousness that powerfully opposes Satan's spirit of wickedness.
Genesis 4:23; 24; Enoch righteously condemn a descendent of Cain named Lamech for ungodly acts of lawlessness and marrying two wives. Lamech boasted about murdering Enoch. Yehawah did not allow Enoch to suffer as he died and also removed his body for an honorable burial. 
(Jude 1:14; 15; 16-17; 18-19; 20-21;  Heb 11:1-2; 5; 6; 35; 39; 40;  Jn 3:13;) 
Acts 24:15; Enoch was not taken to heaven, but he is still  dead and waits for the time of the resurrection of restoration. The resurrection of the righteous will occur at Messiah Yeshua's return when the Kingdom of Yehawah is restored on earth. 
(Jn 5:25-26; 27-28; 29; 6:39-40; 44-45; 11:24; 1 Cor 15:50-51; 52-53; 54-55; 1 Thes 4:15; 16; 17-18; Mt 24:30; 31; Rev 20:4; 5; 6;) 

Ark of Salvation

Genesis 6:3; 5-6; 8; 10;  Now, 10 generations had passed from the time of Adam to Noah. Noah was righteous and walked in agreement with Yehawah's Covenant laws. 
(Amos 3:3; Heb 11:7; 2 Pe 2:5;) 
Genesis 6:11-12; 13; Most of mankind had become corrupted and lived in rebellion against Yehawah's commandments.
Genesis 6:14-15; 16; 17; 18-19; 20-21; 22; Noah obeyed Yehawah by building an Ark and entered into the covenant of salvation for his family.
Genesis 7:1-2; 3; 4; 5-6; 7; Yehawah commanded Noah to save seven pairs of every clean animal and only one pair of unclean animal. Yehawah's laws that designate clean and unclean animals preexisted the time of the flood. Yehawah's righteous judgment against wickedness brought a flood upon unrepentant mankind.  
Genesis 8:20; 21; After the flood, Noah offered lawfully clean animals as a sacrifice to Yehawah.  
Genesis 9:3 NASB; Ge 9:4 NASB; Yehawah instructed Noah that he may eat of the lawfully clean animals just as Yehawah had instructed Adam in identifying the green plants that were edible. Yehawah further stated that animal blood was not to be eaten. Yehawah's laws govern all of creation and are Good instructions for all of mankind. The clean animals that are acceptable for sacrifice are also the only animals that are good for food.

Noah plants the Seeds of Righteousness

Genesis 12:1; 3; 2 Pe 2:5; Noah continued to be the preacher of Yehawah's righteousness for 350 years after the flood.   Noah saw 10 generations of his family repopulate the earth and died shortly before the birth of Abram. Yehawah spoke to Abram a descendant of Shem, Noah's son. 
(Heb 11:8; 9; 10; Amos 3:3;) Abram faithfully obeyed Yehawah's instruction and received the promise of future blessings. Abram's descendants would become a great nation and inherit the promised land. Abram's seed would become a blessing to all nations. 
Genesis 12:6; 7; 8; Abram traveled to Shechem in Canaan and continued on to Bethel. Abram built altars for Yehawah near the oak at Moreh = teacher and Bethel = House of Eloheyem. Abram demonstrates acts of sacrificial worship and thank offerings to Yehawah.

Melchizedek King of Peace

Genesis 14:13; 14; 15-16; After rescuing Lot; Abram honored Melchizedek the High Priest of Eloheyem. Melchizedek blessed Abram for faithfully trusting Yehawah Eloheyem.  
(Heb 7:1; 2; 3-4; 5; 6; 7-8; 9-10;) Abram offered Melchizedek 10% of the captured wealth and began the principle of tithing for future generations that worship Yehawah. 
(Jn 8:28; 29; 31; 32; 34-36; 39-40; 42-43; 44; 45; 46-47; 53-54; 55-56; 57-58;) Melchizedek is the Eternal High Priest of Yehawah and He is Messiah Yeshua the Son of Eloheyem the Father.

Inheriting the Seed

Genesis 15:1; In a vision, Yehawah Eloheyem  promised to protect and reward Abram for his faithfulness. 
Genesis 15:3-4; 5-6; Ga 3:16; 17; 18; 19; Abram believed that he would become a father of the promised son. 
Genesis 15:7-8; But, Abram wondered how Yehawah would bring about the promised future land inheritance.
Genesis 15:9-10; 11-12; 13; 14; 15-16; Ex 12:40; 41; Yehawah instructed Abram to present a sacrifice. That evening Yehawah revealed the future of Abram's descendents and their Exodus from slavery that would occur exactly 400 + 30 years later, on that very day of Passover.
Genesis 15:17; 18; Yehawah signed the promised land covenant and deeded the title to Abram's descendants. 
(Psa 25:4-5; 6-7; 8-9; 10-11; 12-13; 14; 37:9; 10; 11; Pr 2:21; Isa 60:21; Mt 5:2-3; 4-5; 6-7; 8-9; 10; 25:34; 1 Cor 6:9; 10; 15:50-51; 52-53; 54-55; 56;  Jas 2:5; Heb 6:13-14; 15-16; 17; 18; 1:8; 9; 10;) 

Forgiveness and Reuniting in Love

14 years later, Yehawah renews His land covenant deed with Abram and reaffirmed that Abram and Sarai would have a son to be their heir.
Genesis 16:1; 2; 3-4; 5; Abram's temporary lapse of faith caused him to sin by conceiving a son with Hagar. Abram repented of his sin by restoring his marriage bond with Sarai. 
Genesis 17:1; 2; Yehawah mercifully restores Abram to the covenant agreement and commands Abram to walk with Him and be blameless. 
(Psa 34:8; 11; 14-15; 17-18; Isa 57:15; 66:2;)
 Yehawah's judgment was merciful because Abram's humble heart turn to Yehawah for forgiveness. Abram did not attempt to offer any animal sacrifice for his sin. 
(Psa 32:1-2; 5; 6; 7-8; 11; 40:3-4; 5; 6; 7-8; 9-10; 11; 112:1-2; 50:5-6; 14-15; 16; 23; 51:1-2; 3-4; 6-7; 9-10; 11-12; 13; 15-16; 17; Ro 4:7-8; 9-10; 11; 12; Job 5:17;) 
Genesis 17:4-5; 7; Yehawah promises to be in His covenant relationship with Abraham and his descendants. 
(Ex 20:6; Lev 26:12; Jer 7:22; 23;)
Genesis 17:10; 11; Dt 30:1; 2; 3; 6; 8; Yehawah required Abraham and his descendents to be circumcised in the flesh as a sign of remembrance.
(Hos 6:6; Mt 9:13; Ro 4:1-2; 3-4; 5-6; 6:16; 17; 18; 19; 20-21; 22; 1 Jn 3:1-2; 3-4; 5-6; 7; 8;)  Abraham learned that Yehawah is just and merciful to everyone that repents by turning away from sin. Yehawah's justification requires sinners to learn obedience to His Holy covenant laws, so that they may become servants of righteousness. 
(Ro 2:25-26; 27-28; 29; 3:19; 20; 23-24; 25; 26; 27-28; 30-31; 4:12; 13;  16; Jer 31:31; 32; 33; 34; Heb 8:7; 8; 9; 10; 11-12; ) True circumcision is represented by a change of heart in a person that desires to be obedient to Yehawah's Righteous laws. 

Remembering Abrahams Works

(Ro 3:27-28 NASB; ) The "Works of the Law" are the required animal sacrifices, circumcision, and tithes that became institutionalized for priestly ordinances during the time of Moses. The Levitical priesthood continually performed animal sacrifices as a reminder of Israel's sinful disobedience. 
(Lev 16:2; 7-8; 9-10; 16; 19;  Heb 9:1-2; 3-4; 5-6; 7; 8; 9; 10; 10:1; 2; 3-4; 8;) The animal sacrifices demonstrated Yehawah's willingness to show mercy and forgive sin by an act of cleansing restoration. 
(Ga 2:15 NASB; Ga 2:16 NASB; Ga 3:1-2 NASB; 
Ga 3:3-4 NASB; Ga 3:5 NASB; Acts 13:38 NASB; 
Acts 13:39 NASB; Acts 13:40 NASB;) The "Works of the Law" did not remove Israel's desire to sin. Animal sacrifices and circumcision in the flesh did not perfect Israel's obedience to Yehawah's commandments. 
 (Psa 119:105-106; 107-108; 109; 163-164; 165-166; 167-168; Jer 31:31; 32; 33; 34; Heb 8:8; 9; 10; 11; 12;) Love for Yehawah's laws were not truly in their mind or heart. 

Covenant Blood

Genesis 17:17-18; 19; 20; 21-22;  Abraham's heart filled with laughter as he anticipated Sarah conceiving the promise son. Abraham hoped that Ishmael would be included in the covenant inheritance. Yehawah said that Sarah's son Isaac is the child of promise and heir to the covenant agreement. That evening, both Abraham and Ishmael were circumcised as Passover began that year.
Genesis 18:1; 2; 3-4; 5; 6; The next day Yehawah and two angels approached Abraham as he was resting by the oaks of Mamre. Abraham had his servants roast a calf and Sarah prepared unleavened bread for their guests.
Genesis 18:10; 11; 12-13; 14; Yehawah reassured Abraham that by this appointed time next year Sarah will give birth to a son. 
Genesis 18:17-18; 19; Amos 3:3; Yehawah instructed Abraham to walk in the covenant by faithfully following Eloheyem's way of righteousness and justice. Abraham must pass the covenant commandments on to his children so that Yehawah may bring about blessings for future generations. 
(Psa 33:5; 89:14; 97:2; Pr 2:9; 21:3;) 

Promised Seed of Rejoicing

Genesis 21:1-2; 3-4; 5-6; Sarah gave birth to Isaac, the child of promise, at the appointed Passover the next year. Abraham circumcised Isaac on the eighth day just as Yehawah had commanded. Isaac's name means laughter and his birth brought joy to Abraham and Sarah.
Genesis 21:8; 9; 10; Later, Ishmael's cruel mocking of young Isaac brought family division. Sarah demanded that Isaac must be the only true heir. Abraham sorrowfully sent away 15-16 year old Ishmael and his mother Hagar on their journey back to Egypt. 

One Covenant of Blessings or Curses
(Dt 30:1; 2; 3; 4; 6; 10; 11-12; 13-14; 15; 16; 19; 20;)

 The apostle Paul's letter to the Gentile Galatians attempts to explain the true gospel of salvation. Paul is clarifying the intended purpose of symbolic practices of animal sacrifice and circumcision that are the, "Works of the Law."
Galatians 3:19; 21; 23-24; 25; 27; The required "Works of the Law" would transition to the sacrifice of spiritual obedience that produce the true circumcision of the heart. The "Good News" of freedom from sin would come through Faith in Messiah Yeshua's forgiveness and the Covenant bond in the Spirit of Holiness.  
(Ga 2:7; 8; Ga 2:16 NASB; Ga 3:1-2 NASB; 
Ga 3:3; Ga 3:5 NASB; Acts 17:23; 30; 32; 31; Jn 16:2; 3-4; 8-9; 10-11; 12-13; ) The Gentile Galatians, that received Messiah Yeshua's Holy Spirit of Truth, were being set free from their natural sinful ignorance. 
(Mk 7:6; 7; 8; Ro 1:5; 2:25-26; 27-28; 29; 
1 Cor 5:7; 8;) The apostle Paul taught obedience to Yehawah's laws and Holy Sabbaths. The Gentiles were confused by the Jews requiring circumcision in the flesh and sacrificial offerings. 
Galatians 4:8; 9; 10; Many of the Gentiles also were returning to their culturally familiar pagan festivals and special days. Paul corrected the Galatians by teaching spiritual truths hidden within the Institutionalized Levitical sacrificial symbolism.
Galatians 4:21; Paul teaches that disobedience to Yehawah's Eternal laws place everyone, "under the law," of condemnation. The Levitical institutionalized sacrificial "Works of the Law" provided a way for sinners to demonstrate their repentance by offering the required sacrifice to receive forgiveness. 
(Ro 2:11-12; 13; 14; Ro 2:15 NASB; Ro 2:16; Ro 3:19 NASB; Ro 3:20 NASB; 1 Cor 9:20; 21; Ga 4:4-5; 6-7; 5:11; 13-14; 16; 18; 22-23; 24;)
 The sacrificial symbolism looked forward to Messiah Yeshua's sacrifice of perfect obedience that would lead mankind to freedom from their enslavement in sin. Messiah Renews the Covenant with His Blood. Yeshua mercifully forgives repentant sinners and offers His Spirit to cleanse worshipers. Obedience to Yehawah the Father will perfect Holiness in followers of Messiah. 
(Heb 5:8-10; 9:13; 14; 15; Jn 1:5-6; 7-8; 9-10; Heb 10:15; 16; 17;)

Faithful Covenant Marriage

Galatians 4:22; 23; 24; The apostle Paul creates an allegory by contrasting two women. Ishmael's mother Hagar was an Egyptian servant girl. Isaac's mother Sarah was Abraham's barren wife.  The contrast between Sarah and Hagar symbolically portray two divergent views of the same covenant with Yehawah Eloheyem. Both Ishmael and Isaac were circumcised as a sign of the same covenant agreement. Symbolically Isaac's promised birth looked forward to the Messiah Seed that would be a blessing to all nations. Even though, Ishmael would not be included in the future land inheritance. Ishmael's circumcision is a sign of his inclusion in the blessing that would come to all nations.
(Ge 12:3; 18:18; 19; 22:18; Acts 3:25; Ga 3:8;) 

Yehawah's Covenant Proposal 

Galatians 4:25; 3:16; 17; 18; 19; 20-21; 22; 23; 24-25; 26-27; Hagar is compared to the Mount Sinai covenant that Yehawah made with Israel.
(Ex 19:9; 18-19; 20:1-2; 3-4; 5; 6-7; 8-9; 10; 11-12; 13-15; 16-17; 18-19; 20-21; 22;) At first, all of Israel promised to obey the voice of Yehawah and keep His  covenant commandments.
(Ex 24:7; 8; 9-10; 11; 12; 31:16; 17; 18;)
Israel quickly sinned by worshiping a golden calf. 
(Ex 31:16; 17; 18; 32:1; 4; 7; 8; 16; 19;) So, Moses broke the 10 Commandment tablets of Yehawah's first covenant with Israel. 
(Ex 34:1; 4; 5; 6; 7; 9; 10; 27; 28; 29; 30; 31-32; Lev 26:40; 41; 42; Deut 4:10; 11; 12-13;  5:1-2; 3-4; 7:6; 7; 8; 9; 10-11; 12; 10:12; 13; 14-15; 16;) Yehawah mercifully renewed the covenant with Israel, but added the required sacrificial, "Works of the Law." 
(Ex 27:21; 28:1-2; 29:19; 20; 21; 35-36; 37; 38; 39-40; 41; 42; 43-44; 45-46;) Aaron and his sons continually performed animal sacrifices as a reminder of Yehawah's Mercy and the Covenant Blood that is offered for Forgiveness of Israel's sins. 
(Ro 6:16; 21; Heb 3:7-8; 10-11; 18-19; 4:2; 4-5; 6; Ro 11:25-26; 27-28; 29-30; 31-32; 33-34; 35-36; 15; Eze 37:1-2; 11-12; 13- 14; 23; 24; 25; 26; 27-28; Lk 15:24; 32; ; Acts 15:5; 8-9; 10-11; Ro 2:25-26; 27;)
The covenant itself did not enslave Israel, but their sinful lawlessness enslaves them.

(Ro 6:16; Jn 8:31-32; 34-35; 36; 42-43; 44; 45; 46-47; 1 Jn 3:1; 2; 3-4; 5-6; 7; 8;) 

Restoring Faith to the Marriage Covenant

Galatians 4:26; Acts 7:38; 39; 40; 41; 42; 43; 44; Amos 5:25-26 NASB; Mic 6:2-3; 4; 5; 6; 7; 8;  At Mount Sinai, Israel entered into a marriage covenant and was betrothed as a virgin bride to Yehawah. But, sinful Israel played the harlot and the spiritual marriage union did not occur. 
(Eze 16:1-2; 5-6; 8-9; 13; 14; 15; 20-21; 
Jer 31:31; 32; 33; 34; Heb 10:15; 16; 17;) Abraham's conception of Ishmael with Hagar could not replace his true love and devotion to Sarah his barren wife. Yehawah mercifully remained faithful to keep His promise to Abraham. Even though,  Israel failed to keep the covenant agreement and did not become a blessing to all nations. Israel’s sins could not revoke, Yahweh’s promise to Renew the Covenant of Salvation through the Messiah; promised Seed of Abraham and Sarah.
(Ga 2:17; 3:6; 7; 8; 14; 16; 17; 1 Pet 2:5, 9; Rev 1:6; 5:10; Isa 56:6; 7;) 

Marriage of the Lamb

Galatians 3:16; 26; 27; Sarah symbolically represents  Jerusalem. Abraham look forward to Yehawah's promised seed that was planted in his heart. Abraham  faithfully walked with Yehawah Logos Melchizedek High Priest of  Eloheyem the King of Peace.  Melchizedek became the promised seed and heir of all things, as the Savior Messiah Yeshua, who will restore Jerusalem to Yehawah's Zion Kingdom.
(Isa 54:1; 5; 6; Heb 11:8; 10; 11; 16; Psa 2:6; 9:11; 14:7; 48:2; 50:2; 51:18; 69:35; Isa 1:26-27; 2:2; 3; 4; 5; 24:23; 35:10; 52:6; 7; Heb 7:1; 3; 15; 16; 17;) 

Good News of Love Restored

Galatians 4:27; The wages of sinful lawlessness have brought death to all mankind from the time of Adam.
 (Ro 6:20-21; 22-23; 1 Jn 1:1; 2; 3-4; 5-6; 7; 8; 9; 10; 3:1-2; 3-4; 5-6; 7; 8; 9; 10;) But, there is hope for everyone that enters into the Covenant of Renewal through faith in Messiah Yeshua's forgiveness. 
(Acts 2:22; 23; 24; 31-32; 33; 36; 38; 39; 3:13; 14; 15;; 18-19; 20-21;) Believe the "Good News."
(Ro 6:1-2; 3; 4; 5; 6; 7; 12:1; 2; Heb 9:13; 14; 15; 18; 19; 20; 22; 10:15-16; 17;) Now everyone must repent and be baptized to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit for the Renewing of their mind. A believer in Messiah Yeshua must put to death the sinful human nature and learn righteous obedience that comes through faith. Salvation will be made complete when Messiah Yeshua Melchizedek returns to establish Zion in Jerusalem. 
Galatians 4:28; Mt 22:2; 25:1; 5-6; Eph 5:23; 24-25; 26-27; 28; 31-32;  Lk 12:28; 31; 36; 13:24; 28-29; 30; 14:15; 20:34-35; 36-37; 38; Rev 19:1; 6; 7-8; 9; 20:4-5; 6; Jn 3:29; 5:28-29;) Messiah Yeshua will raise from the graves His faithful obedient  saints. The resurrected saints will enter into the Covenant Marriage Union of Eternal Life with Yehawah Eloheyem the Father and Son. 
(Mt 22:2; 25:1; 5-6; Eph 5:23; 24-25; 26-27; 28; 31-32;  Lk 12:28; 31; 36; 13:24; 28; 29; 30; 14:15; 20:34-35; 36-37; 38; Rev 19:1; 6; 7-8; 9; 20:4; 5; 6; Jn 3:29; 5:28-29;)
Abraham and Sarah received the birth of Isaac, that symbolically looks forward to the promised Seed. The future Messiah would establish the Kingdom of Yehawah on earth and renew the blessings of Zion from Jerusalem.

Israel's Hardened Hearts

Galatians 4:29; Ge 21:9; Ishmael's cruel mocking portrays mankind's sinful disregard for Yehawah's spiritual laws of love for your brother. At Yehawah's appointed time the Promised Seed of Abraham was manifest to Israel.  
(Jn 1:1-2; 3-4; 5; 9-10; 11; Dt 18:15-16; 17-18; 19; 32:15; Isa 53:1-2; 3; 4; 5; 6; 7; 
Mk 14:61-62; 63-64; Mt 27:41-42; Jn 1:12-13; 14; Acts 3:17-18; 19-20; 21-22; 23; 7:37-38; 39;)
 The Messiah Savior was despised and rejected by those who claim to be teachers of Yehawah's commandments.  
Galatians 4:30; Ge 21:10; Both, Ishmael and Israel received the sign of circumcision through Abraham. But, the true circumcision of the heart comes through Messiah Yeshua the Eternal Yehawah Logos and the Promised Seed.  Only Faithful followers of the Savior enter into the Covenant of Renewal by receiving the Promised Spirit of Holiness. Truly repentant followers of Messiah learn to overcome sin.  The reward for Faithful Obedience is an inheritance in the Kingdom of Yehawah and the Eternal Tree of Life.
(Jn 8:12; 19; 23-24; 25-26; 28-29; 31-32; Acts 2:36-37; 38-39; 4:11-12; Heb 1:1-2; 3; 8; 9;)
Galatians 4:31; The institutionalized Levitical system of animal sacrifice, "Works of the Law", never removed human sinfulness. The Renewing of the Covenant occurs when Messiah's Spirit of Holiness writes Yehawah's laws in our mind and on our heart. The sacrifice of Faithful Obedience to Yehawah's laws of Love, will Perfect the True Circumcision of the heart. 
 (Mt 5:17; 18; 19; 19:16; 17; 18-19; Mk 10:17; 18; 19-20; 21; 12:28; 29; 30-31; Lk 10:25-26; 27-28; Heb 10:15-16; 17; Ro 2:25-26; 27-28; 29; Col 3:10-11; 12-13; 14-15; 16; 17; 
Jas 1:21-22; 23-24; 25; 2:8-9; 10-11; 12-13; 
Lk 17:1; 2; 3-4; 5; 10;) 

Many Covenants of One Promise    
(Eph 2:11; 12; 13; Gal 3:16; 17; Heb 8:6; 
Ro 9:4; 14; 15-16; 11:25; 26; 27;)

The Renewal of the Tree of Life Covenant would come through the promise made to Adam. The Seed of a woman will crush the head of Satan. This is the same Seed of Abraham,  and the Savior of Israel, Son of David, Son of Yehawah Eloheyem the Father. Messiah Yeshua Melchizedek the Prince of Piece will restore all things to Yehawah’s Sabbath Rest.
(Ge 2:9; 3:14; 15; 49:10-11; 12; Psa 89:1-2; 3-4; 110:1-2; 3-4; Mic 5:2; Lk 20:42-43; 44;

1 Pe 1:13-14; 15-16; 17; 18; 19-20; 21-22; 23-24; 25; Rev 2:7; 22:2;) 

Hearts United in Faith

Genesis 22:1; 2; 3; 4; Yehawah spoke to Abraham three days before Passover and Isaac's 15th birthday. Yehawah tested Abraham's faith by requiring that Isaac be  the appointed sacrifice.
Genesis 22:6; 7; 8;  On Passover, Abraham and Isaac ascended Mount Moriah. Isaac asked his father, "where is the lamb?" The question  pierced Abraham's thoughts, "Yehawah will provide, my son."
Genesis 22:9; 10; Isaac stack the wood upon the familiar altar rock atop the mountain crest. Abraham held Isaac close as he bound his son like a silent lamb for sacrifice. Their eyes mirrored the pools of living waters flowing between them.
Genesis 22:11; 12; Then Abraham lifted the knife that could not sever their trusting love.  In a moment of agony the heavens were torn asunder as a voice  shouted, "Abraham Abraham, do not harm your son!" Yehawah had tested Abraham's obedient heart. 
Genesis 22:14; Abraham said, "Yehawah  has intensely caused me to see, that on this mountain, Yehawah  will be seen."
Genesis 22:15-16; 17; 18; 15:1; 5; 13; 18; Yehawah  blessed Abraham's faithfulness and gave assurance of the promises made 30 years earlier. Now on Passover day Abraham and Isaac tasted of the Tree of Life. As they experienced the Heavenly Father and Son's unity of Spirit in Trusting Love. Abraham and Isaac envisioned the suffering of Messiah Yeshua and the Promised resurrection of Renewal in the Kingdom of Yehawah. 
(Jn 8:31-32; 34-35; 36; 39; 42; 45; 47; 53; 56; 58; Heb 11:6; 8-9; 10-11; 12; 13; 14-15; 16; 17; 18-19; Jas 2:21-22; 23-24; Lk 20:34-35; 36-37; 38; Jn 5:25-26; 27; 28; 29; 1 Cor 15:51-52; 53; Mt 24:30; 31;) 

Messiah plants the Seed of Salvation 
(Isa 11:1; 2; 45:8; Mt 3:8; 4:20; Lk 8:11; 15; Jn 12:23-24; 15:4; 10; 13-14;)
  
Luke  22:15-16; 17-18; 19-20; Ex 12:5; 6; 7; 14; 15; 16; 17; 18-19; 20-21; As the sun set on the 13th of Abib, then the evening of the 14th began the Passover remembrance. That evening Messiah Yeshua shared the Passover symbols of bread and wine with His disciples. Yeshua said that He would not eat the Passover again until the Atoning work is complete and the Kingdom of Yehawah  is established on earth. The Passover unleavened bread now represent the sinless body of Messiah the Bread of Life.

(Isaiah 53:3; 5; 7;) The Messiah was  pierced because of mankind's sinful lawlessness and crushed because of mankind's injustice. Yeshua offered His disciples a cup of wine that symbolized His lifeblood poured out for renewing the covenant agreement through His Merciful Atonement cleansing.

Sabbath Garden Grows the Tree of Life
  
• The Passover lamb's blood on the door posts of  the Israelites, identified Yehawah 's covenant people. Now the Passover remembrance prophetically honors Yeshua's sinless body suffering the injustice of crucifixion. His lifeblood is poured out for the purification of spiritual Israel and freeing mankind from enslavement to their sins.  Messiah Yeshua follows the ordained law, patterned in the High Holy Sabbaths. Passover remembrance sets apart spiritual Israelites as the chosen people that enter into the Renewing of Yehawah 's  Covenant of Life. 
(Lev 23:1-2; 3-4; 5; Ex  12:2-3; 6-7; 8; 11; 13;  Jn 1:29; 32; 33; 34; Heb 9:14; 15; 18; 19; 20-21; 22; 1 Pe 1:17; 18; 19-20;)   
• The days of Unleavened Bread symbolize, disciples of Yeshua eating the unleavened bread of life by receiving His Words of Truth and obeying Messiah's Commandments. Yeshua's sacrificial offering of perfect obedience proved that He is the Messiah by His resurrection to Eternal Life.

• Yeshua  became the waive sheaf offering when He ascended to the Heavenly Father.  The wave sheaf is also called "first fruits" that portray   Messiah's perfect sacrificial offering. Yeshua is the Passover Lamb who is worthy to receive the promised Spirit of Holiness that is the pouring out of His lifeblood that cleanses spiritual Israel. 
(Lev 23:10; 11; Jn 20:17; Heb 9:8; 9; 10; 11; 12; 13; 14; 15; 1 Co 15:20-21; 22-23; 24-25; 
Jas 1:17-18; Rev 4:1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 4; 5; 6; 7; 8; 9; 10;)  
 • Pentecost remembers the Covenant Law agreement that was ratified by Yehawah  accepting the sacrificial blood of forgiveness. Disciples of Yeshua entered into the Covenant Renewal by drinking in Messiah's Life giving Spirit of Holiness. Yeshua's Spirit of Holy Oneness with the Father will write the Covenant Laws on the mind and in the heart of Messiah's followers. Disciples of Yeshua learned to make their lives a sacrifice of obedience as they prepared to become "first fruits" for Yehawah 's Kingdom.
(Lev 23:15-16; Acts 1:3; 4; 5-6; 7-8; 2:1-2; 3-4; 22; 23; 24; 33; 34; 35-36; 38; 3:18-19; 20; 21; 22; 25; 26; Heb 10:15-16; 17; Rev 14:4;)
•  Trumpets sound as Messiah's Spirit led disciples battle against Satan's spirit that tempts people to sin against Yehawah's righteous commandments. Disciples weapons of warfare are Yeshua's Faithful Words of Truth. Precious in the sight of Yehawah  is the death of His saints who resist sin unto the shedding of their own blood. Faithful Obedient saints have hope of being in the first resurrection; of the righteous, that will occur at  Messiah's return. When the Angels sound the Last Trumpet, then the Kingdom of Yehawah  will be restored to the earth. 
(Lev 23:24; Ex 19:16; 18; 19; 20; Heb 12:19; Dt 30:4; Lk 20:35; 36; Jn 5:28; 29; 
1 Cor 15:51-52; 53; Mt 24:30; 31; 1 Thes 4:15; 16; 17; Rev 8:2; 11:15; Eph 6:11; 12; 13-14; 15-16; 17;)
•  Atonement; Yom Kippur, Messiah Yeshua completes the Covenant Renewal He began with His acceptable sacrificial Passover blood. The Day of Atonement is the moment the marriage of the Lamb will occur. Yeshua's resurrected saints will be Eternally united in Holy Oneness of Spirit with the Father and Son. Faithful saints will assist Messiah Yeshua as He begins restoring Yehawah 's Kingdom on earth. The adversary Satan must now be shackled and imprisoned for 1000 years to prevent mankind from listening to the spirit of falsehood. 
(Lev 23:27; Mt 25:1-2; 3-4; 5-6; 7-8; 9; 
Jn 3:27; 28; Isa 61:1; 2; 3; 6; 7; 8; 9; 10; 11; Rev 19:6; 7; 8; 9; 20:1-2; 3; 4; 5; 6; 21:2; 3; 4; 5; 6; 7;)
• Tabernacle of Yehawah is now with man. The Angels announced Yeshua's birth as the Emmanuel  promised Savior and King. But, Judah did not recognize the Messiah and rejected the Holy One of Israel. Yeshua's suffering death on a cross and His resurrection to Eternal Life proves that He is the Messiah. Now all mankind will be drawn to the One and Only Perfect Savior and King. Messiah Yeshua must remain in Heaven until the time for the Restoration of all things. The Kingdom of Yahweh will renew desolate land like the Garden of Eden. Healing Waters will flow out from Jerusalem and the whole earth will be filled with the knowledge of Yehawah  as the waters cover the sea. The law will go out from Zion and all of mankind will be offered Salvation in the Covenant of Renewal.
 (Lev 23:34-35; 36; Zec 14:4; 9; 16; Isa 2:2; 3; 4; 5; 9:6; 7; 11:2; 3; 4; 9; 10; 45:21; 22; 23; 24; 25; Eze 36:22; 23; 24; 25; 26; 27; 28; 29; 30; 31; 32; 33; 34; 35; 36; 37:1; 11; 12; 13; 14; 23; 24; 25; 26; 27-28; Rev 22:1;2; 3; 4; 5; 6;)

Glorious Ark of the Covenant

Hebrews 9:1-2; 3-4; 5; Ex 16:32; 25:1; 8-9; 10; 16; 17; 20; 26:33; 40:3; 31:18; 
Nu 17:10;  Dt 9:9; 11; 15; 10:3; 4; 5;  The apostle Paul quotes from Moses to describe the tent of meeting, Holy of Holies, and the Ark of the Covenant. On top of the Ark was the Atonement mercy seat. The Ark contained the tablets of the Covenant Commandments, manna, and along side was Aaron's staff. The Ark of the Covenant dwelt with Israel and Tabernacle in the tent of meeting until the time of Solomon. King David's son Solomon built a temple that followed the commanded pattern that Yehawah  revealed to Moses. Solomon completed the Tabernacle by placing the Ark of the Covenant within the Holy of Holies. 
1 Kings 8:1; 6; 10; 12; Yehawah revealed His Glorious presence with brilliant light that pierced through the deep darkness behind the curtained Holy of Holies. 
(Ex 24:17; Le 16:2; Ps 18:11; 97:2; 104:2; 
Da 7:9; Is 33:14; Heb 12:29; Jas 1:17; 
1 Jn 1:5; 1 Tim 6:3; 14-15; 16;) 

Mysterious Disappearing Ark

The Ark of the Covenant remained in the Tabernacle's Most Holy place in Jerusalem until Judah and Levi were exiled to Babylonian captivity. Biblical Historians believe that Jeremiah the prophet was instructed by Yehawah  to remove the Ark of the Covenant from  the Temple sanctuary.  
Jeremiah 25:4; 5; 8; 11; 12; 29:10; Judah and the Levitical priests would remain in Babylon for 70 years and then returned to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem. 
(2 Chr 7:14; 36:21; Da 9:2; Ezra 1:1; Zec 7:5;)
Daniel 9:25; 26; Ezra 5:2; Hag 1:13; 14; Yahweh's Spirit encouraged Joshua the high priest and Zerubbabel to rebuild the ruined temple. 
Hag 2:3; After 49 years the reconstruction, the tabernacle could not compare to Solomon's. 
Hag 2:5-6; 7-8; 9; Yehawah promised that there would be a future Tabernacle of His Spirit that would far surpass the glory of the first temple. 
Hag 2:14-15;  Yehawah did not approve of  the Levitical priests sacrificial offerings and the spiritual uncleanness of the people. The Ark of the Covenant of Yehawah was never restored to the empty temple worship.
