  1. Ricco;

    you and your team have one of the most important teachings to give, ANET, Honor/Shame. Is very basic foundation which can benefit many of the various groups. It is your groups speciality. We have lots of Torah generalists; and that’s good also. I find when someone has a deep love or interest in an area, it’s sign of their pariticual calling. Not everyone is going to share that love. I do. Of all the various groups; some are going to be more excellant in a particular area. I see ANET, and Shame/Honor to be Very foundational to life applicaation; but that is up to me to ask HOLY SPIRIT to bring that to me.

    Ok, so yes I hear perhaps some fatique from traveling, and the groups are not united; they can’t be, there will be divisions and differences. Take a group like Chabad they have a Torah understanding long established from before coming to US. Hebrew Roots has no long chain of living fathers; therefore there is more division.

    So, in a private teaching, not on line, if there’s some gentle correction to make, do so. A teaching you do well could apply there honor and shame; and how we are to relate well with each other. There has been much family dysfunction since clear back to 1980 (big year for domestic violence). Already, at that time the nation was suffering from rampant divorce where children were envolved, and boys growing up without fathers. My singles pastor at that time (we had divorce recovery for adults and children) was if the adults did not repent, get healed and behave differently we’d loose the next generation of children to Christ); well it’s not gotten better, one reason so many illegals who lived in very bad conditions and brought their own family or fatherless termoil in with them.

    This is very much like the Exodus, we are all living in a time when the whole world is falling in on us; Moses experienced the same thing; he had to lead teach people who were very ill from their slavery; who didn’t want to listen to him, to do what was necessary on the journey and fussed all the way. Emotions are high for everyone. Ok so it’s your web site, and yes you HjAVE the right, sound familiar? to say anything you want any time, but how does ranting, raging, fussing, complaining in public broadcast help you or anyone else? How does that bring honor in public. Simply opens a door for the evil one to get a foot hold. I find whatever bothers me, comes to me as a test, how am I going to handle myself in midst of confused, hurt, people.

    Self composure is a treasure; it brings shalom to all the roundy children around you, us.

    1. I agree brother but if only you knew what I have to deal with all the time, over and over and over and people just sometimes do not get it. I just have to let the King handle it.
      thanks for the correction and I am working on it.

  2. Brother Rico, surely you are anointed to teach on Temple Praise, for after hearing one of your earlier teachings on this subject, I subsequently sat down with my guitar and wrote all of the music for every psalm of the week which will be on one of my future CD’s. Baruch HaShem!

  3. Shalom Rico, This was another excellent teaching, very informative & necessary in knowing how to approach our Messiah & King with the honor He desserves. Thank you so much

  4. Rico,

    You mentioned how you get comments from viewers that say you focus too much on covenants and not enough on the spiritual application of the Scriptures. If this teaching does not bring out the spiritual application, I don’t know what will. There is so much here that screams to my spirit about learning the ways of our King. The protocol, reverence, and honor; the function and the form. It amazes me how flippant we’ve become, or have been trained to think and behave when it comes to approaching our King, or the lack thereof. This portion has profoundly built up my esteem for the things of YHWH. For His character and His heart.

    I am baffled in mind and heavy in heart how it is that we find it difficult, unnecessary or even obsolete to return to the Ways of our Elohim, to offer tribute, ascribe honor to the Elohim of our forefathers, as the world parades in rituals to pagan deities on global platforms such as the Super Bowl, music award ceremonies and Olympic games, flaunting their devotion with such authenticity, and no shame.

    What spiritual application is there that can supercede what the Father desired? Is that not our most significant office and duty? This is foundational, and it is where I plan to dig in and learn to approach Him in a priestly manner, because HE IS WORTHY! It is afterall what He expressed to us already. Therefore, the Temple and the Service are an issue of proximity. How close do we want to be, or how comfortable are we in the degree of seperation we have from Him?

    My prayer is that soon you may find more time, to squeeze out of your already busy day : ), to prepare an in depth teaching on applying these ancient practices from Temple Service, to our day to day walk. May YHWH bless you and keep you and continue to shine His face upon you.

  5. Awesome teaching Rico. The heart of Yahweh is a work of art.
    Every teacher has their ups and downs, but your downs are still uplifting and insightful!
    Good job boss

  6. Shalom, quiero que sepas que esta parasha fue algo sublime, lucias pausado y mucho mas encontrol de todo el tema. Para mi fue de gran bendicion. Le doy gracias a nuestro Padre por tenerte como amigo, mentor, y maestro. Tremenda ense~anza! Shabbat Shalom!

    1. What Rage?, Fussing about what? I just do not get what you are saying right now. Anyone that knows me knows that I focus on trying to establish context and edify the kingdom.

      By the way brother after all the years teaching and running all over the world teaching and seeing things that divide the kingdom of Yah I think that I have earned the right to have an opinion as a servant of Yah.
