John 8:47 "He who is of Elohim hears Elohim's words, therefore you do not hear because you are not of Elohim"
Matthew 5:6 "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied"
Matthew 6:33 "But seek 1st the kingdom of Elohim and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you"
James 1:22 "But be doers of the word, and not hearers only deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror, For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing"

This page is for sharing the actual commands and instructions of YHWH the creator of existence.
Also, the instructions from his beloved Messiah Yahushua will be shared here in it's own section. Yahushua came in his Father's name and spoke what was given to him.
It does us and our families no good only being aware that we must love YHWH and obey his commandments, we need to know his commandments by heart, and perform them to the best of our ability in love.
There is no substitute for actually reading the scriptures. If you want to understand and get to know who YHWH is, this is very important, and reading the source itself will place everything in context. Never neglect seeking and reading for yourself!
It is important that you take the time to read for yourself, and you will also see why you should keep the Law and be moved and motivated to do so. You will develop more understanding and love for YHWH which in turn helps motivate us to keep his instructions and perform righteousness always. Those who love YHWH, obey him. Likewise, those who love Yahushua Messiah, obey him.
One of the drawbacks to the projects that just give a list of commands is that people may be inclined to convince themselves that they do not have to read the scriptures if they have a list of commandments, when in reality they still must read it to understand fully and be well equipped for works of righteousness, and have a good defense against the works of darkness. Also if you haven't read for yourself, you would never know if the list forgot something important off, or added in something that shouldn't belong, etc..
These kind of projects should be more of a quick guide to help you turn to righteousness at the beginning of repenting, and then also, after you read the scriptures for yourself, to look back over regularly and keep them solid in your memory.
Use this project, but do not rely on it alone, it's so important that we and our families spend time in the scriptures even daily to fortify our hearts.
This project will have 2 different versions, 1 will be a list format that I will try to state the commandments for quick absorption and review, and the other will be the actual chunks of text compiled showing the exact wording. The list form will be like a paraphrase, so please realize that it will not always be the exact wording in the Bible, and I am not trying to say that it is, but understand that it is me telling you the commands and then giving you the locations you can look that up for yourself in the Bible. It's very important to me that you understand this. As a reminder, avoid paraphrased Bibles(such as "Living translations"), they're false scriptures that hide the true text.
YHWH revealed his law through Moses, and the commandments given through Moses were written and known as "the book of the law".
This giving of commandments from YHWH almost entirely takes place in the 1st 5 books of the bible: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.
I will also include any time YHWH gives an instruction for man, such as he mentions well before Moses to not murder or eat blood, and also, well after Moses, he shares that he does not want us doing our own pleasures on his holy day.
Here is the link to the List of Commandments section;
The Messiah is the one like Moses whom we must listen to, that Moses told us about. We never had to blindly take Moses's word for what he said, YHWH showed himself to his people and spoke with his own voice to everyone, he validated Moses with no doubt, and they said whatever Moses said they would listen to and do, and Moses spoke of one whom would be raised up and we would listen to, like Moses. We neither have to blindly take Messiah's word, since he fulfilled the scriptures written about him in perfection, he taught the scriptures, and YHWH did many mighty works through him authenticating him without a doubt.
There are many people out there who are using the word "Torah", and it is common to say that the "Torah" is the first 5 books of the Bible, but truly the true torah is every word that proceeds out of the mouth of YHWH.
I am one who tends to avoid using the Hebrew word torah now that I have seen how people started to misuse it, and it also is foreign to English speakers so it hides information from them and confuses them at first which I am trying to avoid.
Some men have started calling their false commandments part of "the torah", implying you must obey them.
Please be on guard against the false teachers and traditions of Judaism/Pharisee'ism, and obey YHWH, not men wanting you to praise and follow them and keep traditions.
There are some traditional lists on the internet claiming to be every commandment from YHWH, they are usually just titled the 613 commandments or laws, so take a big warning about these lists, they come from the hands of pharisees, and the lists are tainted and intentionally corrupted.
By tradition many will tell you there are 613 total commandments in the Law of YHWH, however their list is wrong. Some things they place on the list are not actually commandments, and they also may list the same commandment multiple times if YHWH mentions it at multiple verses. For example, I have seen 7 commands about leaven during the passover on their list that could all be considered 1 commandment.
They are adding to YHWH's instructions, they subtract occasionally from them, and they even twist things until they're disfigured.
Sometimes, they may state a commandment on their list and give a reference to the scripture of where they got that command from, however if you actually look it up and take a moment to read the section, you may find yourself saying to yourself, "it doesn't say that?!", or, "where does it say that at?!" while you're looking all around the passage.
They replace and corrupt the law of YHWH with their laws of men, when YHWH has clearly commanded we shall not add to or take away from his law that he has commanded.
To give you an idea of the corruption, on their list you may find it saying you must cook your meat to well done, when there is no such commandment from YHWH. It is not sin to even eat raw meat(granted that it is a clean meat). They sin against YHWH by adding this, then casting wrong judgment on those who would eat meat that is less than well done claiming they're sinners, and then they also teach this to thousands of others. That wrong judgment they have become prone to and use often is one thing we can see the Messiah correcting in the gospels.
So the command to cook your meat to well done is a commandment of men, and it has to do with their own thoughts on blood. Some man assumed if you cooked bloody meat to well done the blood would disappear, yet the blood remains and just dehydrates. Then people kept this as a tradition to the point they don't question it, and even if they see something showing it's wrong or a contradiction, they still tend to just defend their tradition, it's common for humans to do this, we must love the truth, not ourselves or traditions.
Another example, one corruption has become one of the main commandments of Judaism/Pharisee'ism. There is a commandment for us to hold fast to/cleave to YHWH. The Pharisees however rewrite it, and they say it is a command to "cleave to those who know Him". "Cleave to those who know Him" is an invention of men that is not from the scriptures. Then they have added on top of that information, that the ones who know Him are their teachers, rabbis, and scholars, so basically a number of random men have added to the law that everyone must hold fast to and cleave to them... which is obviously crooked.
Though the ones in Judaism/Pharisee'ism have had these false teachings beat into them so much all of their life, they have trouble taking a simple step backwards to see how obvious this all is, and see the real commandment for what it really says, though don't forget, this also can happen to varying degrees in all people where they struggle to see what is right in front of them occasionally.
It's just like most other denominations, such as modern Christians having beat into them false doctrines of lawlessness that are not of YHWH or his Messiah, to the point they can't see simple sentences and basic logic.
Many like this can read where the apostle Paul makes sure no one misunderstands him and thinks he is telling people to not obey the law by saying;
"Do we then abolish the law by this faith? Of course not! Instead, we uphold the law",
and it never clicks in their mind to put any importance on that law, but instead their mind sits in the teachings and "interpretations" they heard from their pastor men, and they will actually do just what Paul said not to do, they will want to abolish the law by their faith.
So with this being said, the point is to stress the importance of knowing the actual word of YHWH and not getting mixed up in studying twisted additions from men who are not from YHWH.
"Sons" or "Children" ?
Some scriptures dealing with instructions say "sons" in English, but this may actually mean "children". I need to look into this a little more before I translate the word to children instead of sons. This can actually alter some scriptures, if someone takes it to mean sons instead of children. It's not from me not knowing the Hebrew word, it requires more research and logic to be able to say for sure it means children. Some men want to say some commands and scriptures are only for males, and if we make an error with this then we could mistakenly be telling females to break the commandments. Judaism has a few commands they say are only for males, yet I remain unconvinced by them.
In some languages when you're speaking about plural females, there are words to use to let you know this, yet in the same language if there is only 1 male in the group, the word becomes the masculine version talking about that group even though there are females in it. Hebrew is one such language. So this is the debate, trying to figure out how that plural masculine word was intended to be taken. I suggest to people if you find such an issue, then it's better to be safe than sorry. Which is all fine and good, yet some of those in Judaism may complicate this when they see a female doing something, and mock and harass her for trying to do her best.
