Kingdom Concepts PT2

In our last session we discussed certain aspects of it means to be in a Kingdom. We established as to whose Kingdom we belong and who is our King. Now let’s look at the rules to live in His kingdom. In Luke a certain ruler asked what shall I do to inherit everlasting life? Let’s read the account to see what the Masters response was.

Luk 10:25-37  And see, a certain one learned in the Torah stood up, trying Him, and saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit everlasting life?”  

(26)  And He said to him, “What has been written in the Torah? How do you read it?”  

(27)  And he answering, said, “ ‘You shall love יהוה your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your being, and with all your strength, and with all your mind, Deu_6:5 and ‘your neighbour as yourself.’ ” Lev_19:18.  

(28)  And He said to him, “You have answered rightly. Do this and you shall live.b Lev_18:5. Footnote: bSee also Mat_19:17, Joh_12:50 and Rev_22:14.  

(29)  But he, wishing to declare himself righteous, said to יהושע, “And who is my neighbour?”  

(30)  And replying, יהושע said, “A certain man was going down from Yerushalayim to Yeriḥo, and fell among robbers, who, both stripping and beating him, went away, leaving him half dead.  

(31)  “And by a coincidence a certain priest was going down that way. And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.  

(32)  “And likewise a Lěwite also, when he came to the place, and seeing, passed by on the other side.  

(33)  “But a certain Shomeroni,c journeying, came upon him. And when he saw him, he had compassion on him, Footnote: cSee Luk_17:18  

(34)  and he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. And having placed him on his own beast, he brought him to an inn, and looked after him.  

(35)  “And going out on the next day, he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, ‘Look after him, and whatever more you spend I shall repay you when I return.’  

(36)  “Who, then, of these three, do you think, was neighbour to him who fell among the robbers?”  

(37)  And he said, “He who showed compassion on him.” Then יהושע said to him, “Go and do likewise.”

You may notice the ruler was trying to justify his position. So Yahshua gave him an object lesson. In Matthew Yahshua was given another test in which He was asked what the greatest command of all was. I divided the verse to show how it broken down. Point 1 divides Exodus 20 into two parts; the first part is our relationship with Yah and part 2 is our relationship with our fellow man.

1) Mat 22:37 and יהושע said to him, “‘you shall love יהוה your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your being, and with your entire mind.’ Deu_6:5. 

Mat 22:38  “This is the first and great command.

Exo 20:1  And Elohim spoke all these Words, saying, 

Exo 20:2  “I am יהוה your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, out of the house of slavery. 

Exo 20:3  “You have no other mighty ones against My face. 

Exo 20:4  “You do not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of that which is in the heavens above, or which is in the earth beneath, or which is in the waters under the earth, 

Exo 20:5  you do not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, יהוה your Elohim am a jealous Ěl, visiting the crookedness of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 

Exo 20:6  but showing loving-commitment to thousands, to those who love Me and guard My commands. 

Exo 20:7  “You do not bringa the Name of יהוה your Elohim to naught, for יהוה does not leave the one unpunished who brings His Name to naught. Footnote: aOr lift up, or take. 

Exo 20:8  “Remember the Sabbath day, to set it apart. 

Exo 20:9  “Six days you labour, and shall do all your work, 

Exo 20:10  but the seventh day is a Sabbathb of יהוה your Elohim. You do not do any work – you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. Footnote: bThere are other Sabbaths, but this is the weekly Sabbath. 

Exo 20:11  “For in six days יהוה made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore יהוה blessed the Sabbath day and set it apart. 

2) Mat 22:39  “And the second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ Lev_19:18. 

Mat 22:40  “On these two commands hang all the Torah and the Prophets.” 

Exo 20:12  “Respect your father and your mother, so that your days are prolonged upon the soil which יהוה your Elohim is giving you. 

Exo 20:13  “You do not murder. 

Exo 20:14  “You do not commit adultery. 

Exo 20:15  “You do not steal. 

Exo 20:16  “You do not bear false witness against your neighbour. 

Exo 20:17  “You do not covet your neighbour’s house, you do not covet your neighbour’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, or whatever belongs to your neighbour.” 

Exo 20:18  And all the people saw the thunders, the lightning flashes, the voice of the shophar, and the mountain smoking. And the people saw it, and they trembled and stood at a distance, 

Exo 20:19  and said to Mosheh, “You speak with us and we hear, but let not Elohim speak with us, lest we die.” 

Exo 20:20  And Mosheh said to the people, “Do not fear, for Elohim has come to prove you, and in order that His fear be before you, so that you do not sin.” 

Exo 20:21  So the people stood at a distance, but Mosheh drew near the thick darkness where Elohim was. Mat 22:36  “Teacher, which is the great command in the Torah?” 

I can already hear those of you who are asking; why did I just give you the 10 commandments? These are the rules for the Kingdom. Pretty cool right? Seems to be a no brainer right? Here the thing you cannot do them by yourself. No one on this Earth can help you fulfill them. Yahshua said that in our flesh we cannot do them. You may treat them as a check list to see how close you are to Yah yet you will find yourself sorely lacking. He stated that things that are born of the Spirit are of the spirit and the things that are born of flesh are flesh. We cannot complete even one of them nor will we want to do them if we do not have the Spirit of the living God in us.

John 3:1-15  Now there was a man from the Pharisees, a leader of the Jews, whose name was Nicodemus.  

(2)  He came to Jesus at night and told him, “Rabbi, we know that you have come from God as a teacher, because no one can perform these signs that you are doing unless God is with him.”  

(3)  Jesus replied to him, “Truly, I tell you with certainty, unless a person is born from above he cannot see the kingdom of God.”  

(4)  Nicodemus asked him, “How can a person be born when he is old? He can’t go back into his mother’s womb a second time and be born, can he?”  

(5)  Jesus answered, “Truly, I tell you with certainty, unless a person is born of water and Spirit he cannot enter the kingdom of God.  

(6)  What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit.  

(7)  Don’t be astonished that I told you, ‘All of you must be born from above.’  

(8)  The wind blows where it wants to. You hear its sound, but you don’t know where it comes from or where it is going. That’s the way it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”  

(9)  Nicodemus asked him, “How can that be?”  

(10)  Jesus answered him, “You’re a teacher of Israel, and you can’t understand this?  

(11)  Truly, I tell you with certainty, we know what we’re talking about, and we testify about what we’ve seen. Yet you people do not accept our testimony.  

(12)  If I have told you people about earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you about heavenly things?  

(13)  “No one has gone up to heaven except the one who came down from heaven, the Son of Man who is in heaven.  

(14)  Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up,  

(15)  so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.

So even with much learning you can not perceive the commandments of YHVH and yet people try to do just that. You must have the circumcision of the heart in order to be able to live the Kingdom rules.

Come back next time and we will look at some of the examples in the scriptures that show us how to live a Kingdom lifestyle.

Pathway to Israeli citizenship?


I know that there is a large group in the “Hebrew-Roots” movement that their desire is to live and move to Israel yet are faced a major road block and that is you convert to orthodoxic Judaism and denounce Yeshuah as messiah. So in one fell swoop all of our hopes are dash asunder and we feel crushed and we look to other pathways to gain access to the land. Yes you can become a volunteer and be able to spend about six months at a time in the land. And we are glad for that, yet that is not the same as living there on a permeant basis. There are many pathways yet unless the Father calls we will not be permitted to enter into the land.

We are as the kid looking through the glass into the candy shop. Then one day a man approaches you and says. I will pay for you so that you can get all the candy you may wish, only you must denounce your mother and father as your parents and proclaim him as your father. Then you realize that you can not do what the man ask of you, you walk away heartbroken. Along this thought there are men in Israel who have offered us to live in the land and we would not have to denounce Yeshuah and they would leave us alone. Sounds good until you realize who is the one making the offer only wants to enslave us under Judaism and ultimately force us to be under the “Noahide Law”

Currently the Israeli Supreme Court ruled that are to allow those who are in Israel who have converted to Reform or Conservative Judaism to make Aleah. This is were the trap is when the Sanhedrin are allowed to rule over Israel. Then whatever laws that were passed or ruled by court. That those conversions will be nullified and they will convert back to a gentile status.

I believe it is a trap to be avoided. The world is about enter into a testing to see if they abide with His Kingdom laws or be deceived and follow the Rabbis into a certain trap. Go to link concerning the article to understand what I am talking about here. Did a High Court Ruling Open Back Door For Christians to Become Israeli Citizens? ( High Court recognizes Reform, Conservative conversions carried out in Israel | The Times of Israel

Now you may ask what do I mean that this is a trap? Read this article concerning this,

The Rabbis and their plan for the world.pdf – Google Drive

In an AVI WEISS piece titled As Orthodox rabbis, we support the court’s conversion ruling – opinion MARCH 4, 2021 18:53

The Supreme Court decision has the potential to bring us closer, allowing Jews from all streams to feel part of the destiny of Am Yisrael.

    Weiss cites the court ruling that seems clear the pathway to become an Israeli citizen were the Rabbinate disagrees with the ruling two American Rabbis have different point of view that should serve as a warning to those of the Christians that must listen to what is not being said.

The Orthodox rabbis say; “We are Orthodox rabbis who have served in Orthodox synagogues and taught in Orthodox schools for five decades. It is precisely because we love Orthodoxy that we speak in support of the Israeli Supreme Court’s decision validating Conservative and Reform conversions done in Israel for Israeli citizenship.”

Right about now I can see the chief rabbis spinning their kippahs

They continue; ” This move, we believe, will help foster in Israel a less coercive Orthodoxy and worldwide will embrace all of our people as part of Am Yisrael, with a shared past and shared future.   No doubt, the Chief Rabbinate will disagree with the position we’ve taken as they fiercely want to hold on to power, determined to be the sole arbiters on conversions, leaving no room for Conservative and Reform.”   We know as well from conversations with colleagues that there are Orthodox rabbis who agree with us, but are fearful to say so publicly, concerned that the Chief Rabbinate will refuse to accept any spiritual leader who disagrees with their position.   Because we support Reform and Conservative conversions for citizenship in Israel doesn’t mean we would accept their conversions as halachically legitimate. As in America, when individuals have come before us with non-Orthodox conversions, if they don’t meet Orthodox standards, we would encourage another conversion.   Truth be told, the Israeli Supreme Court decision doesn’t change much. Based on the Law of Return, the Israeli Interior Ministry already accepts for citizenship those converted by Conservative and Reform rabbis outside of Israel. The inequity for those in Israel has now been resolved.   Why accept the Supreme Court decision? Our teacher Rabbi Yosef Dov Soloveitchik wrote not only about the Covenant of Sinai, but the Covenant of Egypt, also called the Covenant of Fate. We part company with our Conservative and Reform colleagues on many halachic matters going back to Sinai, but our fate as a people unites us; the enemy makes no distinction between levels of observance or denominations. We survive and thrive as a people together.   More broadly, we are all part of what can be called the Covenant of Family – that family includes our co-religionists from other denominations. Recognizing their conversions in Israel will deepen the relationship between Israel and the majority of Jews in the Diaspora who are not Orthodox.   With all our heart and soul, we believe the Supreme Court decision will strengthen Orthodoxy. Most Jews in Israel today have been alienated by the Chief Rabbinate, as they see it as coercive in nature. This kind of Orthodoxy alienates, as spiritual striving and religious coercion are antithetical. With greater choice, people may see Orthodoxy as less oppressive, more inviting.   If Israeli citizens have a choice of where to go for a conversion, it may catalyze the rabbinate to be more open in their conversion policies, taking into account the whole corpus of Jewish Law which is more flexible than the current extreme Chief Rabbinate’s standards.  Competition is always good as it encourages everyone to do better.  This bill could create a dynamic which would prod the Chief Rabbinate to become less insular and adopt a broader view of Klal Yisrael.   Notwithstanding our critique of the Chief Rabbinate, our feelings for those who hold its office remain warm. In the past, we were honored to have contact with Chief Rabbis – clearly lovers of Israel and the Jewish people. We have little doubt, too, that the Chief Rabbis today are people of goodwill. But the Chief Rabbinate as an institution no longer works. Whenever power coalesces in the hands of the few, it spells trouble.   Perhaps the greatest threat to Israel is the lack of unity of our people. The Supreme Court decision has the potential to bring us closer, allowing Jews from all streams to feel part of the destiny of Am Yisrael, talking openly with each other, disagreeing agreeably, recognizing we are not only part of one nation, but one family – hopefully a loving family.

This may seem like a good path but it will lead you down the path of death.

Pro 14:12  There is a way which seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.a Footnote: a Pro_16:25.

To top it all off those who go done that path will be greeted by the nice people in nice white lab coats. And will roll up your sleeve so I can administer the COVID-19 “vaccine”. Then you too will be changed to a transhuman. Oh you still have to wear a mask and you will still be required to allow the PCR test in your country of origin and your new prison country of your choice. And you will be required to carry your vaxport at all times. This will allow entry to most places. You can rest assured it is all for the good of the Jewish state of Israel!

May YHVH bless you and keep you, may He cause His face to shine upon you and may He grant to you peace.

In His Path Ministries

In His Path Ministries started some years ago. I was praying and Yah gave me the name. My wife and I live in the greater “Israel” we have been here for nearly five years. I was called here to Israel proper about 7 years ago but no matter we tried it did not work out, then we found out about Jordan and a wonderful like minded people that we could fellowship with. Many things have happened since we have been here. My hope is that you will be encouraging to you as we get closer to His appearing. So keep a careful eye out and be ready for His time is near even at the door.

Who would of thought that the world would change so much in such a short time. At the beginning of last year we did not know all the things would take place, the so called pandemic, lockdowns, destroyed economies, mask wearing and washing of hands,  stores that have been business for generation have shuttered and will not reopen, supply chain collapsing as well as the monetary system around the world. Mass amount of unemployment globally along with that riots looting and mass shootings. Only to find out that this could last for 2 years or longer. 

Now that all of this has gone on for a year now the vaccine is out even with the two doses they say I will still have to wear a mask and social distant. Why? By the way I am not taken the vaccine because of a couple of reasons. One of which is the ingredients that is in them, you can read about them. Additionally I will not be someone’s lab rat.

On top of all of that we have mass amounts of earthquakes, volcanoes, abnormal weather patterns 

So as I said before get lives in order and do as the Father for you to do and where to flee for times are perilous and it is only going to get worse. Do not be the ones who say this is America nothing will ever happen here. Think about that and take to YHVH in prayer and ask Him. 

Blessings to you!

Kingdom Concepts


In our day and age we have little knowledge of what Kingdom living is never mind have any real life examples to compare to. Sure we can point out a handful of Kingdoms that remain with us to this day, but do they truly reflect the Kingdom of God? I would say no they do not. So if what is on this earth is dismal reflection of what YHVH has in mind as to what kingdom to reflect. Then this begs the question as to what is the Kingdom of YHVH supposed to look like? Man has tried to define what is a kingdom through out time since the creation. The closet we got was in the beginning. What in the beginning reflected His Kingdom you may ask. We had The King on the earth and His ambassadors , Melchizedek in the person of Adam, where in place (see Kimberly Rogers-Brown teachings Melchizedek Archives – The Messianic Message). So if this was prefect in all areas a true reflection of His kingdom is then what went wrong? Is there anything we can do to correct it? The answer to this question is no. In fact the only one who can do anything about it is YHVH who created us.  Yet even then He will and does allow us to choose which path we want to travel.

You see what Adam and Eve did was to try to circumvent YHVH in attaining knowledge through the forbidden tree. See Gen 1 – 3 for the account as what happened. Now fast forward this to Gen 6 at this point man had corrupted himself so much YHVH had to judge the earth and the living creatures on it for they were corrupted by man as well. So YHVH sent a flood to destroy all of creation except for one family of eight people. That would be Noah and his family.

Before we go on let’s talk about the fall of man and how we got to this point. YHVH did tell them about what they could eat of every herb of the field and the fruit of the tree. All of it was food for them except of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. YHVH further went on to explain to them what would happen to them on the day they would eat of it, He told them that on the day that they would eat of it they would surly die. “And יהוה Elohim commanded the man, saying, “Eat of every tree of the garden, but do not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for in the day that you eat of it you shall certainly die.”(Gen 2:16-17)

In this line of thought most people want throw Eve under the bus and blame her for all of the trouble we have today. Contrary to this view it was not until Adam took and ate of the fruit that they were changed. So what most of the current teachers say that the blame rest solely on Eve, rather when we examine what happened that it was not until Adam ate of the fruit. YHVH looks at this different than we do.

They were one and when she ate of it nothing happened to her so Adam waited to see if she would die. It is not known how long it was before Adam ate of the fruit. None the less they ate of it and at that time they were changed. In a reversal of what happened in the garden we read

(1 Cor 15:51-52)

51  See, I speak a secret to you: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

52  in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

We will all be changed to be like Him in an instant. What was imperfect shall be made perfect. Sounds a lot like it was in the beginning in the garden.

  • Now that we have an idea as to what was lost in the garden and we see what the end result is today. The very same things that were going on then is what is going on today. You might ask how is that going today that tree is no longer here with us for it was destroyed at the flood. You would be correct if that was the point I am making here. What was the question posed to Eve? Did God really say ________? You can fill in the blank with whatever you may want. That question has been asked of us in a variety of ways. Or another statement that often comes into play when their argument is faulty and that is, Well that is not what it means to me. When we open up the Word of God and use that filter and we change the meaning of the words to suit our evil lust then come away thinking everything that I wish to do is okay. If I want to eat pig, Beatles then that is okay too. Why would God put it here if it was food for me? That is my point if we change what the Father said then nothing matters and sin does not exist and all things are permissible. You see just by changing the food laws how messed up things become. Imagine by allowing this to happen when you apply this thinking to the Torah then you come away with a very messed up view.

In this series we shall explore the following;

  1. What can be done to repair the problem?
  2. Who is the only one that can fix this mess that we are in?
  3. Who is the King?
  4. Where is His Kingdom?
  5. What does He expect from His servants?
  6. How does He treat His servants?
  7. How are we to treat Him?
  8. How are we to treat our fellow Servants?
  9. If we wronged someone how are to make it right?

This is just the start of the series and we discover what is required of us in His Kingdom we will find out that it is a burden nor difficult to live YHVH’s kingdom.

Mat 11:28-30

(28) “Come to Me, all you who labour and are burdened, and I shall give you rest.

(29) “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am meek and humble in heart, and you shall find rest for your beings.

(30) “For My yoke is gentle and My burden is light.”

Jer 6:16

(16) Thus said יהוה, “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and find rest for yourselves. But they said, ‘We do not walk in it.’

They said ‘We do not walk in it.’ Even then YHVH gave a choice that would have been easier but the people as today choose the burdensome path. Why is it that we need to make it more difficult and burdensome?

If you want proof look around and you will see it in everything we do. What stops a person from just getting in his own car and drive where ever they choose. No we have to have a thousand or so laws stating how to proceed down the road and where we can go or not. If we do that with a simple thing like driving is it no wonder there is a three volume on just the sabbath.

So in our next session we will discuss the rules of the Kingdom Living. May YHVH bless protect you and your family as you go out and come in and may grant to you peace.

This Rick Eldridge of In His Path Ministries signing off.

What if YHVH wants to take America down?

What if the thing that YHVH wants to do is to bring America down? What would you do? Would you still follow Yeshuah no matter what? Are the things of GOD more important than the country you live in? Are you undone if and when your country is taken away from you? What will you do? Does your love of GOD far surpass the love of country and tradition? What will you? To whom will you turn? Will you continue serve man or will finally turn and repent from our evil ways. You may say God would never do this to a “Godly” country. Since when are we a Godly country? When we allow the death of millions of innocence blood unborn. We allow those who innocent to be locked up without a fair trail. When we allow state after state to launch illegal elections and allow those outside influence to change the results.

This is what needs to be done. “If I shut up the heavens and there is no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people upon whom My Name is called, shall humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their evil ways, then I shall hear from the heavens, and forgive their sin and heal their land.

(2Ch 7:13-14)

REPENT!!! REPENT!!!! PRAY AND SEEK HIS FACE!!! This is what is needed and if we do not repent and humble ourselves then it is all lost. We must return back to God and do what He said for us to do. That is we must return to the Torah and do what He says for this is the rules of the Kingdom of God. This is how we are to live and love each other.

This is something to consider. May YHVH bless you if you will follow Him, May He cause face to shine upon you if you seek after Him.
