A Message from Matthew

Passover is an amazing time to reach out to so many in the traditional Christian environment. It’s an opportunity for those who are seeking to exchange garments — from the soiled garments offered at an Easter tradition to the unsoiled garments of Messiah available at a holy Passover Feast.

YHWH is amazing, and I’ve witnessed many a person in times past coming to faith in an Easter service. How much more in the unspotted truth and light of Passover?

At Torah to the Tribes we’ve shaken off the debris over the years; no longer sitting down for the customary “Jewish” Seder (which is full of hours of tradition). Instead, we’ve opted to walk in the Master’s footsteps as close as we can with foot washing, and the breaking of bread, and kiddish: an intimate time of fellowship together where the focus is on the Priesthood transfer and the blood ratification, that I believe, should be commemorated at this time of year.

My hopes is that all of you that follow this ministry focus on the deep, intimate work that Messiah is trying to accomplish within us all. He draws us especially near at His Moedim, not just in the outward observance.

Passover leads us into Unleavened bread and we all know that it’s the leaven left in our lives that’s the danger, not the biscuit hiding under our children’s and grandchildren’s mattress that matters.

I love the Feasts. I love observing the Feasts with all of our brethren and I pray that you do the same as we learn more and more together in our journey of sanctification. There’s no better time to practice the hospitality of Abraham!

Blessings and be a blessing,

Matthew

It is time to start preparing for Yahuwah’s appointed times this Spring. We should spring clean our homes of leaven (Exodus 13:7). But more importantly, we need to clean our hearts (Psalms 51:10).

Our hearts should be free of resentment, hostility, hatred and blame as we obediently agree to Yahuwah’s Book of the Covenant proposal (Exodus 19:5-24:11); vowing to keep the Royal Torah. (Genesis 1:1-Exodus 24:11). This acceptance is the first step to joining the Melchizedek Royal Priesthood. Read More

After being sojourners (strangers) in Egypt for over 400 years as foretold in Genesis 15:13, we find the children of Israel observing their first Passover just prior to their exodus. This “same day” had been prophesied to Abram 400 years prior by YHWH in Genesis 15.

In Genesis 15 YHWH provided Abram with a covenant guarantee by the flaying of the animals.  This was a covenant Passover with Yahusha passing between the pieces as a flaming torch. This event took place after Abram… Read More

Community Question of the Month

Question: I am seeking to understand a teaching by Matthew Nolan that a friend shared with me. His teaching was contrasting echad – a plural one in Hebrew – with tri-unity, which I thought was the same thing. Do you understand what the difference is? Bobbi

Best Answer: The affirmation of truth found on the T4 website perhaps best references the difference between echad and tri-unity. The first bullet point on the Yahuwah Elohim tab states:

יהוה Yahuwah) is the Echad (plural One) True Elohim (God), conveyed in (Devarim {Deuteronomy} 6:4) and (Shemot {Exodus} 34:6-8).

Devarim/Deuteronomy 6:4 states – Shema Yisrael: יהוה  is our Elohim, יהוה  is Echad. (One, or Oneness, or Unity, Or Compound Unity)

Shemot/Exodus: 34:6  states – And יהוה passed by before him, and proclaimed, יהוה ,יהוה. In this verse one YHWH declares the Name of the other.

The word “tri-unity” is defined as the act or state of being three in one (usually with reference to the Christian idea of the Trinity). Whereas the Hebrew word Echad refers to YHWH as a Compound Unity, Trinitarianism (Nicene Creed of 381) teaches that YHWH consists of three distinct persons who exist in co-equal essence and co-eternal communion as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We encourage you to do further research for a deeper study of both terms.
