The Sixties Radical- Azriel I have Heard the Cry of my People

Pastor Kathy’s words were straight from HaShem  Sunday August 12th. These G-dly words exploded into the universe. This was more like an earthquakes couple with the voice of G-d when HaShem spoke the Ten Commandments in one breath at Mount Sinai.

“I hear the sound of my people crying out for help. “

Then Pastor Kathy added;” Let the cry of your heart cry out. I hear you.” Then I saw the burning bush on the Mountain of G-d (Mount Sinai).  I saw Moshe stopping and talking to HaShem.  This was G-d answering our cries for help.

Then I heard the cries of us Jews during the destruction of the first Temple coupled with the cries of us Jews when the Romans were persecuting us.  G-d answered our prayers and cries for help when HaShem took the human form of Yeshua. Yeshua walked among us to deliver the Good News.

Pastor Kathy said:” Yeshua is the word and then He read the word.” Then these words came alive before me “Barukh ata HaShem Eloheinu, Melekh ha’olam.” G-d’s

The answer is very simple.

What HaShem did was give us a direct encounter with the creator of the entire universe. The one who spoke the entire universe into being with ten utterances. And thus, this prayer was answered in order to Shepherd us Jews first and the rest of the Non-Jewish World into the new covenant not like the first which we Jews broke when we built the Golden Calf.

This one will never be broken.

HaShem -Yeshua spoke through Pastor Kathy to let us know “This is the year of the favour of the L-rd.”

The Sixties Radical- Azriel Cutting Off the Supply

To fight evil face-to-face is futile. But we can cut off its supply.

Between good and evil lies a neutral ground, a battlefield—the realm of all things permissible. All supplies to the enemy must pass through this realm. Because evil has no power of its own—it lives entirely off the scraps thrown to it from above.

By taking all that is permissible and using it only for good, honestly and uprightly, with purpose that transcends our own selves, the supply lines are broken.

When every activity of life becomes a way to know G‑d, evil simply withers away and dies.

Tanya, chapter 37.


The Sixties Radical- Azriel Finally Winning

Throughout history, countless tactics and strategies are played in the battle over planet Earth. But at the end of the day, the only thing that really matters is called winning. And winning comes at the very end.

With every other round of the game, the soul puts out whatever it’s got. When it comes to the last stretch, neck and neck with the enemy, it‘s got to do better than that. Its very core ignited, it bursts into explosion of power never before imagined.

This is the stubborn power we have today, to finally change the world and transform it into a divine place. Not with our own strength, but with the power of all those before us. Because now, from above, every power is released, the very essence-core lashes out. To win.

The Sixties Radical- Azriel The Last Adam

The following thoughts come from the teaching of Rabbi Gordon on the Tanya AV 25.

Adam’s was a unique soul. His soul contained within it each of us Jews ever to have lived. Adam had within his soul each one of Jews from the moment of creation until the time Yeshua.

If Adam hadn’t sinned each of us Jews would be the offspring of both Adam and Eve. Since Adam sinned G-d postponed this experience due to the fact the world fell into separation from HaShem.

Ya’akov was the next Adam. Ya’akov was the embodiment of every single Jew. All of our Jews souls are linked to Ya’akov.

Ya’akov is Torah and Torah is Ya’akov.  This goes for Adam too. Adam is a Torah and Torah is Adam.

The last Adam is Yeshua. HE came to earth to warn us we were so far away from G-d that a trip to the outer galaxy was closer.  We didn’t heed the warning and thus G-d through HIS kindness destroyed the second Temple on the ninth of Av 70 AD.

Our corrupt religious structure was never the same. Yet HaShem allowed us to have our sacred texts in the City Yavne when Rabbi Yochanan Ben Zakkai made a deal with Roman General Vespasian who was sent by Roman Emperor Nero to destroy Jerusalem to save the Yavne.  Vespasian agreed to save the Holy City of Yavne and thus G-d allowed us to keep our sacred texts from destruction.

Chabad describes the conversation between Rabbi Zakkai and Roman General Vespasian: The greatest Jewish sage of the time was Rabbi Yochanan ben Zakkai. He wisely foresaw that Jerusalem was doomed and understood the need to transplant the center of Torah scholarship to another location, to ensure the survival of Torah study after Jerusalem’s destruction. He devised a plan that would allow him to leave Jerusalem, despite the Zealots’ blockade. He feigned death so that he could be carried out of the city. His disciples carried the coffin out of the city’s walls, and Rabbi Yochanan proceeded directly to Vespasian’s tent. He entered the tent and addressed Vespasian as “Your Majesty.”

“You are deserving of death on two accounts,” said Vespasian. “First of all, I am not the emperor, only his general. Secondly, if I am indeed emperor, why did you not come to me until now?”

Rabbi Yochanan answered: “You are an emperor, because otherwise the Holy Temple would not be delivered in your hands.… And as for your second question, the reckless Zealots would not allow me to leave the city.”

While they were speaking, a messenger came and told Vespasian that Nero was dead and he had been appointed the new Roman emperor. Vespasian was so impressed with Rabbi Yochanan’s wisdom that he offered to grant Rabbi Yochanan anything he wanted as a reward. Rabbi Yochanan made three requests.1 The primary request was that Vespasian spare Yavne – which would become the new home of the Sanhedrin – and its Torah sages.

Rabbi Yochanan thus ensured the continuation of Jewish scholarship after the fall of Jerusalem. Even though they would no longer have a Temple or a homeland, the Jews would always have a spiritual center in the Torah.

In 69 CE, Vespasian returned to Rome to serve as emperor, but first he appointed his son, Titus, to carry on in his stead. In 70 CE, Titus came towards Jerusalem with an army of 80,000 soldiers.


Thus Yeshua is the Jewish Messiah who was sent to save us and bring us back to G-ds House.

Many think G-d has abandoned us Jews WRONG! G-d will never abandon HIS people. G-d said to Moshe I am your G-d. Period end of discussion.

Yeshua is the embodiment of every Jewish soul from the time of creation until Yeshua comes back again.

Deal with it for we are the still the apple of G-d’s eye. We are G-d’s people. We are Yeshua’s people.

The Sixties Radical- Azriel Hate What is Evil!

My teacher Pastor Steve Gray has ESPN I mean ESP or what? Joke intended. This happens all the time when my teacher opens his mouth and the word of G-d comes forth.

This is exactly what this Jewish follower of Yeshua needed to here.

Let’s cut to the chase.  These words came straight from HaShem Yeshua Sunday August 5th. These words tie in directly with what my Torah and Tanya lessons were for this past week.

“G-d wants you to become something and then do something We all have different gifts but we all better have the same faith.”

I always had this backwards. Become something and then do something.  This is so unG-dly. No wonder I was in such deep doo-doo.  When HaShem dropped me at the doorstep of World Revival Church so this unG-dly Jew come back to his roots.

HaShem led me to my teacher Pastor Steve Gray.

Without my teacher Pastor Steve Gray this Jew would be a dead Jew.  You see I was dead to the ways and word of G-d and the sad part was I didn’t even know it until HaShem Yeshua opened my eyes and showed me that my teacher Pastor Steve Gray is a trustworthy man of G-d.

I completely trust and respect my teacher Pastor Steve Gray.

Let me it to you in another way Torah needs to be taught. The Torah needs to be learned not studied. Torah needs to be learned from a teacher. This why I must have a teacher to teach me about Torah.

For Torah truths are highly personal to me.

Torah is not theoretical. Torah implicates me in what I am doing right and wrong. What I need to change so I can walk in the ways of G-d.

So, this Jew can be a G-dly Jew.

This is what I want to be a G-dly Jew.

G-d used my teacher Pastor Steve Gray to start me for real to study Torah and the Tanya.  This started on November 22nd, 2016.

Most important of all this Jew is now learning to walk in the ways of HaShem Yeshua

This means every day I study Torah and Tanya.

And by doing this action it has changed the way I see and interact with the world. Some days I am a horse’s rear end and when that happens I make amends for my wrongs. I admit them and ask HaShem to change me. My entire being.

This is the real kicker “Hate what is evil and cling to what is good.”

These words came to my mind from one of my Tanya lessons. If you are kind to cruel you will be cruel to the kind.

The source of all life comes from HaShem Yeshua.

The Sixties Radical- Azriel Completion

Through many journeys through many lives, each of us will find and redeem all the divine sparks in our share of the world.

Then the darkness that holds such mastery, such cruelty, such irrational evil that it contains no redeeming value—all this will simply vanish like a puff of steam in the midday air.

As for that which we salvaged and used for good, it will shine an awesome light never known before.

The world will have arrived.

The Sixties Radical- Azriel The Matching Game!

Like a matching game, each act of beauty uncovers another face of the infinite. Each generation completes its part of the puzzle.

Until the table is set and prepared. Until all that remains is for the curtains to be raised, the clouds to dissipate, the sun to shine down on all our bruised and bloodied hands have planted, and let it blossom and bear fruit.

That is where we are now. We know a world in the process of becoming. Soon will be a world where each thing has arrived.
