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. Great job bro! The instructions for repentance are very important in a culture who teaches forgive and forget instead of taking responsibility for your misdeeds and those of your ancestors and actually accepting the punishment required.

  2. Rico my brother, my testimony is the same, that YHVH would love such a mess and grant me restoration is beyond my understanding. There is only one way to approach my King…..on my face. Bless you for your work and thank you for sharing it. Shalom!

  3. Wow!!! I learned so much from this teaching!!! Thank you Rico for all your research and time you put into your teachings!!! It is soooo much appreciated!!

    Can you tell me if Yeshua’s words have to do with the Jubilee??
    From Matthew 18:22……..
    “Yeshua said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.” Is this talking about the Jubilee…when all debts are forgiven??
    It would make sense that it does?…or to me anyway. 🙂

    May YHVH bless you and your family beyond measure!!

  4. Rico, thank you for posting this again for us this year…. so great. I don’t remember what year we had the last 7 year rest, but that year I did not plant my Butterfly Zinnia garden that I plant every year. Yah gave us a bumper crop which I praised Him for daily and the migrating Butterflies feasted on. I also remember that a Banana farmer in Israel that year did not work his bananas that year. In fact, his family took a sabbatical away. When the other farmers all around him had their bananas wrapped and ready for harvest, an unusual freeze occurred. The other farmers notified this 7 yr. keeper that he must come see the crops for his crop alone had not frozen. We serve The Most High Exalted God may He be praised forever and forever.

  5. @Margarita Sosa I have studied the “times” regarding what year and Yovel cycle we are in and have found so far that we are in the 119th Yovel cycle, 3rd year of the 3rd Sabbatical cycle of 7 years. The cycle of famines, pestilence and earthqukes… Leviticus 26. Yah says if we do not keep his land Sabbaths that we will be cursed 7 times over and we have not kept these land rests. This is an extensive study, but you can find exactly when the flood happened, etc. I am still studying this but we can break today down as follows based on my current understanding of what I have learned:

    May 19, 2012…

    27th day of the 2nd month 5848 years after the creation of Adam
    The 2nd Month in the Third year of the third Sabbatical Cycle
    The Third Sabbatical Cycle of the 119th Jubilee Cycle
    The Sabbatical Cycle of Earthquakes Famines, and Pestilences
    This is also the end of the Eighth week of this the Third Tithe Year for the Levite, the alien, the fatherless and the widow Deuteronomy 26:12
    The 41st day of Counting the Omer

    Thank you and bless you Rico for your faithful service to Yah!

  6. Hi Rico, Im a cryer too…My husband and my son are always laughing at me – Ths time I was laughing at you too…but you know what Rico, THATS THE HEART OF THE FATHER…Thats what I like about You; you are REAL…If we do not see the mercy He extends to us after rejecting Him and if we do not cry when we see the (still) desolate, devided state of Israel then I believe our hearts may be growing cold.

    My husband could not believe that it is only $5 to sign up. So I said to him, “thats because you have gotten accostomed to being fleeced.” The Father has deposited His heart in you – You are a breth of freh air.

  7. I support Wisdom In Torah because of the research and effort you and your staff put into YAH”s work, also because of your zeal and passion for the Living Torah, YASHUA. If we lose our humbleness and our brokeness before YAH we have committed the unpardonable sin and have lost it all.

  8. Are there any farmers outside the land who are keeping the Shemitah? It is not a matter of just not planting for one year it is also how to manage the land so that the weeds don’t rush in because nothing has been planted. Along with the weeds comes insects and all kinds of problems. This brings problems to the farmer and his neighbors. That is not to say YHVH doesn’t have a plan bigger and greater it is just the knowledge how to do it? Does anyone have insight? Since the harvest cycle is different here then what it is in the land, whose cycle does one start and end on? Land like animals would still have to be managed, how is that done?

    Rico, you are bringing a big challenge with this one. Obedience is king though. Hutov

  9. Thank you so much Rico! This was a blessing from Yahweh, underserved unconditional love. May all the Praise and Glory be to Him. Thank you for being a faithfull servant, and I pray he shall pour out his blessings on you and your family.

  10. Brother, you show the heart of the Creator in the teaching. The family loved it. You must have done this after we visited in Midland. You are a blessing. Thanks so much.
