Here's how to get the most out of this site: Read every article thoughtfully and completely, word for word, and then take the time to research every claim, every alleged fact, and every reference supplied for support. If you are unwilling to do that, then I will save you some time and let you know right now that my site will be of little use to you.
You see, the Bless Yahowah web site is not for the spiritually insincere. I define spiritual insincerity as "a detached disinterest and uncaring disregard toward getting to know Yahowah through the study and first-hand application of His Word."
If, in your heart of hearts, you know that you fit that description, then I would like to offer you an opportunity to make a life-changing choice. Right now, today, this very minute, decide to either get with the program or give up your play-acting altogether. If you choose against becoming a serious, hard-working student and active doer of His Word, then go all the way and admit to yourself that your "love of God and the things of God" is a self-serving charade. Admit it to yourself, admit it your Maker, and wash your hands of the whole thing. Be done with it. Stop deceiving yourself and stop trying to convince others that you're other than who you really are. Quit wasting your time. Go your way in peace. Eat, drink, and be merry. Enjoy your time here. You are free to do that, you know.
Don't worry: when you die, you won't be sent to "a sinner's hell" to be tormented forever and ever by a sadistic god-thing. Rather, you will just die: your soul will be annihilated (you won't feel it); you will be dead and gone, literally. So if fear of "Hell" has been keeping you playing the religion game, now you know the truth. You don't have to placate some hateful super-spirit in the heavens to avoid being tortured for all eternity. That scenario is a lie; it is a myth of religion. If you do not want to know Yahowah, then when your allotted life-span is over, you will die and that will be the end of it. It's your choice.
Yahowah has given us life so that we might use it to accept and participate in His Family-Oriented Covenant. His desire is that we would get to know Him through His Towrah, which means "teaching" and which does not mean "law". So if we choose to refuse His gift of the Towrah, if we choose not to accept the terms and conditions of His Family-Oriented Covenant, then Yahowah will let us die. That will frustrate His purpose for your life, but He will let it happen if that is what we choose to do. It's about loving Him, getting to know Him, understanding Him. It isn't about doing whatever it takes to keep an angry, hateful, vindictive Almighty from smashing our heads in and abusing us for ages and ages.
Now, those who choose to reject Yahowah's Family-Oriented Covenant are those to whom Dode (See note below) referred when he wrote,
Song / Mizmor / Psalm 10:4 (See note below.)
through the pride of his countenance,
will not seek after God;
God is not in all his thoughts.
Here on my site I say some things that sound harsh. Why? Because I feel indignant towards those who do not highly value my heavenly Father, and because I hate those who promote religions and every other device of man. I will say such things because it is written in the prophet, Yermiyah:
Yah has loosed / Yermiyah / Jeremiah 48:10
Rejected be he that does the work of Yahowah with a slack hand,
and unaccepted be he that keeps back his sword from blood!
In other words, it is right and good for me to be on fire for Yahowah and His Word, and it is right and good for me to not spare your feelings (i.e., figuratively, to draw emotional blood with the sword of His Word). I will say such things because it is my way of loving you in Spirit and in truth.
Word Pictures / Mishlay / Proverbs 27:6
Faithful are the wounds of a friend.
If you are not enthusiastic and diligent in your pursuit of the treasures of His wisdom as revealed in His Word, then you will not know the truth, and you will never be able to do the Father's will because you won't know what it is. You will never get to know Him in an intimate, family sort of way, which is His strongest desire for you. Instead, you will continue to sleep-walk through this life, and at the end you will either cease to exist or, if you went to your grave promoting one or more of man's schemes of self-rulership, then you will be given eternal life only to hear Yahowsha Himself tell you, "I never knew you. Get away from Me!" Only it won't be a One-on-one interview. You won't deserve that kind of privileged communication with the righteous One. No, you will be part of a huge herd of other wasted souls, whom the Good Shepherd calls "the goats" and whom He will address as a group. Here. Let me just give you the record so you'll know where all that came from.
Yah has given us a gift / Mattanyah / Matthew 7:21-23
[Yahowsha was speaking, and He said,] "No one who calls Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter into the kingdom of heaven—only the one who does the will of My Father in heaven. On that day, many will say to me, 'Lord! Lord, didn't we prophesy in Your Name, and in Your Name cast out demons and do many powerful deeds?' Then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you. Get away from me!'"
You don't exclaim, "Get away from me!" to those you love and care about. You say that to someone who disgusts you; you would say that to someone you despise. And who are those who disgust Him, whom He despises? Those who reject His guidelines; those who stubbornly refuse to follow His instructions for this life; those who despise His Parties, His Called-Out Assemblies of Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, Sevens, Trumpets, Reconciliations, and Shelters, besmirching them as bonds of slavery; those who prefer the ways of man to His Ways; those who choose religion over having a real, one-on-One relationship with Him according to His Family-Oriented Covenant. Yahowsha despises those who don't care enough about Him to expend the time and energy to get to know His Father through His Word, choosing instead to scatter souls away from Him through religious teachings or some other scheme of men. It is plain, simple, and—if you're on the wrong side of this thing—utterly terrifying.
Yah has given us a gift / Mattanyah / Matthew 25:31-46
[Yahowsha was speaking, and He said,]"When the Son of Man comes in His glory and all His heavenly attendants with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. All the nations will be assembled before Him, and He will separate people one from another like a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on His right and the goats on His left.
"Then the king will say to those on His right, 'Come, you who are blessed by My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited Me in, I was naked and you gave Me clothing, I was sick and you took care of Me, I was in prison and you visited Me.'
"Then the righteous will answer Him, 'Master, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You something to drink? When did we see You a stranger and invite You in, or naked and clothe You? When did we see You sick or in prison and visit You?'
"And the King will answer them, 'I tell you the truth, just as you did it for one of the least of these brothers or sisters of Mine, you did it for Me.'
"Then He will say to those on His left, 'Get away from Me, you accursed, into the eternal fire that has been prepared for the false accuser and his agents! For I was hungry and you gave Me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me nothing to drink. I was a stranger and you did not receive Me as a guest, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.'
"Then they too will answer, 'Lord? When did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not give You whatever you needed?'
"Then He will answer them, 'I tell you the truth, just as you did not do it for one of the least of these, you did not do it for Me.'
"And these will depart into eternal banishment, but the righteous into eternal life."
But wait! Didn't I tell you earlier that you needn't worry about "going to Hell"? Then why did Yahowsha speak of an eternal darkness and about being sent there?
Here's your answer: Those who don't take part in promoting religious, political, economic, and military systems and their schemes have nothing to fear. When they die, they die. They won't be in the herd of doomed souls described in this passage. They'll be dead and gone. But those who have actively opposed Yahowah, that is, those who deliberately turned souls away from His one and only Family-Oriented Covenant (that's right, there's only one, and it hasn't been taken out of the way by anything or anyone) by suggesting some alternative system, well, their goose is cooked.
Let me expound a bit on this. Those on Yahowsha's left hand are those who deliberately turned souls away from Yahowah. Perhaps they did not know that's what they were doing. It won't matter. They still did it and are as guilty as … well, sin. They are those who in this life were the clergy of a religious system (Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, etc.), political activists, patriots, etc. They are not the rank-and-file members of mankind. Those people are already gone by the time of this judgment. For whatever reason, they squandered the gift of life; they did not accept the terms and conditions of Yahowah's Covenant; their souls died at the precise instant their bodies died; they have ceased to exist.
Those who are left to be judged are eternal: they cannot die. But they cannot spend eternity with Yahowah, either, because they turned souls away from Him. So they will be punished, and their punishment is eternal banishment from Yahowah. Where they are going there will be no light, no heat, and no fellowship. There will be only eternal blackness and total isolation. They won't be able to communicate with each other in any way. Eternal loneliness is theirs. Yahowsha said there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, and there ought to be, for these are those who kept others from finding Yahowah. The full knowledge of how evil they were and of the inexorableness of their situation will bring about their bitter weeping and their gnashing of teeth as their consciences and their memories torment them forever and ever. Yahowah won't have to lay a hand on them, and He won't need to instruct one of His minions to do so. Each prisoner's conscience will torment them unceasingly, hour after hour, day after day, year after year, century after century, millenium after millenium. Unable to die and with no hope for parole, their fate is not one any of us wants to be sent to. So you see, there is no "sinner's hell fire". Fire would have no effect on a spirit, anyway. (Well … Duh!) That whole scenario is one of religion's myths. The "eternal fire" Yahowsha mentioned is an obvious reference to the burning effects of their guilty consciences. It is also not unlikely that He was likening the eternal prison to "Gehenna" (see note below).
This matter really is serious and urgent. That is why I am putting it in your face like this. We're not about playing church here. We're about loving the Heavenly Father, Yahowah, and about showing our love for Him by giving up the trivial pursuits and pleasures of this world in order to get to know Him intimately. We are about getting to the Truth in every situation, exposing our real motives for doing and thinking what we do. Only the Word of Yahowah can bring us into the real Truth, and we have to work hard to uncover His Word because of all the layers of lies and deceptions which have been dropped on top of it through the centuries by men of corrupt hearts and evil ways. Either we care enough about Yahowah to do this, or we do not. There is no middle ground.
Once we begin to know Him through His Word, without religious teaching and tradition, we will find ourselves motivated by our spiritual Mother, the Set-Apart Spirit, to do the Word. Knowledge of the truth is worthless, even harmful, if that knowledge is not used to stimulate us into appropriate behavior and action for the sake of His Name.
Heel Grabber / Ya'aqob / James 1:22-25
And become doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. Because if anyone is a hearer of the Word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror. He looks at himself and goes away, immediately forgetting what he looks like. But he that looks into the perfect Towrah (teaching, instruction, guidance for living, means to resolve disputes) of freedom and continues in it, not becoming a hearer that forgets, but a doer of the work, this one shall be blessed in his doing.
Does All of This Sound Off-the-Wall?
If all of this sounds off-the-wall to you, then do the right thing: perform your own thorough research into the validity of my claims and allegations. All you need is a good Hebrew-English lexicon and a reliable Greek-English lexicon. With those, you will be able to prove to yourself that I am telling you the truth about your Bible translations, and from there you can embark on this exciting journey with Yahowah to uncover His Truth. You might also consider getting any or all of the resources listed [here]. While Dr. Strong's work is good, it is not infallible because he was so completely influenced by Christianity. So you will not want to take what he says as "the whole truth". It is always a good idea to consult mutiple resources whenever you can.
Contrary to religion's preachings, Yahowah really has allowed His Word to be corrupted through the ages. He had to! Otherwise, He would have been interfering with free will. He allowed His Words to be misquoted in the Protected Enclosure of Eden when He let the adversary misrepresent them to Chawa (wrongly named Eve by religion), and He has allowed it to be corrupted ever since. But He has also kept open the way to dig through the corruption to get to the treasure of His truths. It just takes time and real effort. The lazy and complacent ones won't ever find it. Those who want to sit in a pew once or twice a week and let someone else tell them what "the Bible" says and what it means won't ever find it. They don't deserve to.
If you are one of those who will immediately seek out a member of the clergy or some other "knowledgeable" person, then my site isn't for you. You aren't ready yet. If you would trust a member of the clergy or anyone else who evangelizes for their religion or cause, then you're still thoroughly blinded and nothing here will help you.
Better would be to do your own research using all the resources available to you commercially and on line.
Christian clerics and other defenders of Pauline doctrine are like the false envoy, Paul. Paul pronounced a curse on anyone who dared to disagree with his version of the Beneficial and Healing Message (aka, the Gospel), which he never got right, and he publicly threatened to personally punish those in Corinth who disobeyed his teachings.
Religion's supporters are so deceived that Yahowsha went so far as to call them blind. Many of them really do think they see clearly, but if you do the research I am urging you to do, you will learn that they see absolutely nothing clearly, for their vision is fogged by their religious teachings. They worship Him in vain, "teaching as doctrines the commandments of men," when He doesn't want to be worshipped at all. It is perfectly all right—in fact, it's the only reasonable response—to reject them and their Towrah-rejecting teachings.
Similarly, it is foolish in the extreme to seek them out for answers, seeing that they have set themselves against Yahowah by rejecting His Name and choosing to disregard and set aside His teachings, guidelines, and instructions, the Towrah. So don't go running to your pastor or Sunday School teacher or that lady at work who seems to know the Bible really well. Do your own homework! Got it?
Why are there so few who accept the truth and then walk in it with all their heart? Why will so many who think they're saved be excluded from Yahowah's Royal Family? To answer that, I give you the words of the Ma'aseyah Himself.
Yah has given us a gift / Mattanyah / Matthew 7:13,14
"Enter in through the narrow and confined gate, for large and wide is the gate, and spacious and roomy is the road that leads off into complete and utter destruction and ruin, obliteration and annihilation, and there are large amounts of people who go through it.
"Narrow and confined is the gate, and oppressed, afflicted, and mistreated is the way that leads off into everlasting life, and there are few people who come to know it through inquiry and examination, thought and scrutiny, investigation and perception."
The reason so few will accept the truth and then walk in it is because the way to eternal life is characterized by the Savior's Son as being "Narrow and confined, oppressed, afflicted, and mistreated." It isn't the feathery soft, fluffed-up, feel good foolishness of religion-tolerant faith. The way to eternal life is not entered into by following a ritual or by making "a statement of faith". It will only be found and entered into by a relatively tiny number of people (one in a million) who consider the prize of everlasting life with the One we love to be worth the cost. And what is the cost? The cost of following Yahowah is rejection by this world and those who love it.
Be one of us. The Few. The Unproud. The Yahudim. Oo-rah.
Hear the Word of Yahowah!
Yah Is Giving Us A Gift / Mattanyah / Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23
On that day, after Yahowsha went out of the house, He sat by the lake. Such a large crowd gathered around Him that He got into a boat to sit while the whole crowd stood on the shore. He told them many things in parables, saying, "Listen! A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them.
"Other seeds fell on rocky ground where they did not have much soil. They sprang up quickly because the soil was not deep. But when the sun came up, they were scorched, and because they did not have sufficient root, they withered.
"Other seeds fell among the thorns, and they grew up and choked them.
"But other seeds fell on good soil and produced grain, some a hundred times as much, some sixty, and some thirty.
"He who has ears to hear, let him hear!"…
"Hear, then, the parable of the sower.
"When anyone hears the word of the Kingdom, and doesn't understand it, the evil one comes, and snatches away that which has been sown in his heart. This is what was sown by the roadside.
"What was sown on the rocky places, this is he who hears the word, and immediately with joy receives it. But he has no root in himself, so he only endures for a little while. When oppression or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles.
"What was sown among the thorns, this is he who hears the word, but the cares of this age and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful.
"What was sown on the good ground, this is he who hears the word, and understands it, who most certainly bears fruit, and brings forth, some one hundred times as much, some sixty, and some thirty."
Who has been given ears to hear, and who chooses to hear, let him hear!
Thus, the Bless Yahowah web site targets those who are determined to think for themselves, who refuse to have their thoughts spoon-fed to them by others, who are motivated to do their own research, and who will work with all diligence to prove or disprove the things presented here (even if they think they've seen it all before and already know all about that particular "personal doctrine"). And once they are convinced of the truth, they will become doers of the Word. They who study and do His Word are the only ones who really love the Father. And we will be the only ones invited to share eternity with Him as His children, with all the rights and privileges thereto pertaining.

Song / Mizmor / Psalm 19:7
Yahowah's Towrah is complete and entirely perfect, returning and restoring the soul. Yahowah's testimony is trustworthy and reliable, making understanding and obtaining wisdom simple for the open-minded and receptive.
Yahowah's () Towrah (torah – teaching, guidance, direction, and instruction) is complete and entirely perfect (tamym – without defect, lacking nothing, correct, genuine, right, helpful, beneficial, and true), returning and restoring (suwb – transforming) the soul (nepesh – consciousness). Yahowah's testimony ('eduwth – restoring and eternal witness) is trustworthy and reliable ('aman – verifiable, confirming, supportive, and establishing), making understanding and obtaining wisdom (hakam – educating and enlightening oneself to the point of comprehension) simple for the open-minded and receptive (pethy – easy for those who are receptive).
Dode / David
"Dode" is an accurate transliteration of the Hebrew name we usually see rendered as David. It rhymes with "code" and it means "love". Dode's name is spelled dalet-waw-dalet in Hebrew. The Hebrew character "waw" (ו) sounds like a long "ō" in English when we find it in Hebrew words such as "tōrah", "shalōm", "gōwym", etc. Since we know that the waw carries the sound of the long "ō" in English, we know how to pronounce the sweet psalmist's name correctly.
If I wrote "Dwd", you wouldn't know what pronunciation I'm trying to convey. Were I to spell it "Dod", you might think I was meaning for it to rhyme with "odd". Similarly, were I to spell his name as "Dowd", you might think I mean for it to sound like "loud".
Remember, too, that Hebrew had no "v" until around 1948 when those devils, the rabbis, decided to change the sound of the Hebrew letter "waw" to aid them in their plot to obfuscate Yahowah's Name.
Song / Mizmor / Psalms
The actual name of the book in Hebrew is "Mizmor", which means "song" or "melody". "Psalms" is a Greek word and has no place in Yahowah's Hebrew records.
Hell / Gehenna
Gehenna was the city dump for Yarushalaim (Jerusalem). Located some distance outside the walls of the city proper, Gehenna was where all the town's garbage went to be burned. It is used as a metaphor for the abode of the unsaved dead, the souls of those considered by Yahowah to be trash, worthless, good for nothing. Moreover, the valley in which Gehenna is located was used by the pagans of old as the place where they would sacrifice their children as burnt offerings to their god, Molech. This too might explain how it came to be associated with abhorrent souls, such as all those who practice religious rites and traditions.
