    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 teaching. Around minute 20:40 of your teaching you said, “at least 70 years from Gospel of John and Book of Revelation.” My understanding is that the Gospel was writen around 80-90 AD and Revelation around maybe 90-96 AD. This then was the thinking that both the Gospel and Revelation are more mystical which then also agrees with your teaching, i.e. hard to understand for those unlearned. But the “church” then puts “babes” in Messiah right into the Gospel of John.

    2. Rico; I watched your teaching on HRN. today,and then watched this one now, You always bring things to light for all of us. I do get a little up-set at HRN. because it will stay on, until you and my other favority teachers come on then WHAM off it goes.sometime I think that HaSatan don’t want me to hear what is been said.

    3. So as Torah pursuing believers of Yeshua HaMashiach, are we required by law, (as the Sanhedrin has decreed), to abstain from meat and dairy (at the same time) as well as using separate dishes for same? Are we sinning if we have a salad with beef and cheese on it?

    4. Rico, I (more than my words could express) truly do appreciate your heart and your time, effort and the knowledge YHVH our Elohim has given to you, in what you share in each Torah portion! It is such a blessing to get to listen to and learn from what you share, here! (and, also, what Daniel and Ryan share)
      Thank you so very much for following what YHVH has, and is, leading you to do, and to study and share with us here!! Please thank your wife (and children) for me, for allowing you to do this, because it edifies, encourages and helps us in our growth in Messiah Yeshua! I am learning so much here!!
      HalleluYah! Praise YHVH, Who is our ultimate and awesome, long-suffering, merciful Teacher-above-all-teachers!! His Truth makes us free! His Love is everlasting! His Mercy endures for ever!
