9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; [I am] God, and there is none like me;
10 declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not [yet] done; saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure;

I am a teacher of Scriptures, Torah follower, and believer in Messiah Yeshua. I have been given the opportunity to share the Word of God with many believers around the world. My work as a servant of the Most High God has allowed me to be a voice to spread the good news of the New Testament, unveiling its truth through context and the obedience to the Almighty through his Torah.

  1. I was reading the Shemoneh Esrei at three this afteroon when saw that Jewish parents are instructed to teach their children three things, 1)Torah 2) a trade 3)how to swim. Talmud Kiddushin 29a I wonder if this if this is for the trial by water ? anyone know??

  2. Rico, GREAT job laying out all of this information. This is probably my favorite teaching of yours. Absolutely amazing. Yah never ceases to amaze me every time he shows me another little nugget of truth. I am amazed at how much I’ve learned and I can’t wait to learn everything else in store for me. Yah bless you and keep you!

  3. There’s something I’m having trouble understanding from video #1. You said that when babies are born, they are under the god of this world until circumcision. (paraphrased) But what about girls who cannot be circumcised?

    1. In the Torah the females come under the protection of the father. My point was about the boys due to the mandate to continue the seed which comes from the father. Without that there will not be Israel.
      Sorry I did not explained better

  4. ….it may sounds stupid but is their a connection with Dagon and Hosh Hashana ? the fact that The Jews eat the HEAD of the fish ? on the so call Jewish New Year ?

  5. Thank you Rico,
    Soo much great information!! Like someone said earlier on, this has freed me from so much guilt. Enough already in giving ear to the adversary, let my whole attention be returned to my King and Redeemer!!!

    I pray that we would all do our part to answer the prayer of our King;

    Joh 17:20-26 KJV Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; (21) That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. (22) And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: (23) I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. (24) Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. (25) O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. (26) And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

  6. Rico,

    Thank you for these teachings! Every time we study with you, we learn more and more foundational truths. These truths continue to help us understand more and more truth. We love studying with you!

    We so look forward to being together with you again!

    Blessings to you and your family!

  7. @ 47:56 of part one you mentioned the ritual involving a woman/wife accused of adultery. I was reading a National Geographic dated June 2001, in it, there was an article about the Djenne, The Eternal City of West Africa. There was a picture of a traditional healer, tracing out a prayer in the dirt of the Great Mosque so that it could be worn in an amulet. They believe that the clay/dirt of Djenne is blessed because there are “benedictions in the earth.” Although this region follows the Koran, the people of Djenne continue to honor pre-Islamic beliefs-that the land is sacred and is a source of supernatural power.
