“Every great Order and Office has as its foundation a statement of faith, belief, principles and policies which shape its final outcome, whether for good of for evil, whether for success or failure.” ^1
“For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law (Torah), till all be fulfilled.” RE: Matthew 5:18, Yahshua, Jesus our Messiah.
"And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever." (Dan 2:44)
Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff (powder) of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and THE STONE that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth. (Dan 2:35)
"Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, THE STONE which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder." (Mat 21:42-44)
“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt has lost his flavor, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.” Jesus, Matthew 5:13
“Wherefore, the rather, brethren, give diligence (ABIDE) to make your calling and election sure (HODE ^2): for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:” 2Peter 1:10
“THUS SAITH YHWH Saba-oath, the LORD of hosts; If thou wilt (ABIDE) walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by. HEAR NOW, O Joshua (Yah-of-shua, God of salvation) the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant (ABIDE), the BRANCH (jmx See-MaKe).” Zechariah 3:7-8. (Emphasis added)
As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.
Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise. (Isa 60:18)
There are abundant TORAH principles we at See-MaKe jmx BRANCH adhere too. To be brief, and not try to quote the whole Bible, we are limiting our statements to those that relate to BUILDING YHWH’s Habitat on planet Earth, a.k.a. the House of YHWH, LOCATED WITHIN A Kingdom District (AKD). Therefore, we incorporate by reference the whole counsel of God and emphasize herein the tasks we at See-MaKe jmx BRANCH are assigned related to BUILDING A Kingdom District (AKD).
BUILDING THE HOUSE, Ezekiel's Temple Complex (ETC) and A Kingdom District (AKD) has obviously not yet been fulfilled. To do our part in this fulfillment, according to the instructions (TORAH) recorded in Ezekiel 40-48, we make these additional Statements of Principles and Affirmations for See-MaKe BRANCH:
After (examining the entire House) he (Ezekiel’s escort) brought me (Ezekiel) to the (east) gate . . .: And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory. And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face. And the glory of the LORD came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east. (Eze 43:1-4)
So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court. . .
. . .and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house. And I heard him speaking unto me out of the house; and the man stood by me. And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne, and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever, and my holy name, shall the house of Israel no more defile, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the carcases of their kings in their high places. In their setting of their threshold by my thresholds, and their post by my posts, and the wall between me and them, they have even defiled my holy name by their abominations that they have committed: wherefore I have consumed them in mine anger. Now let them put away their whoredom, and the carcases of their kings, far from me, and I will dwell in the midst of them for ever. (Eze 43:1-9)
“Thou son of man, show the house to the house of Israel,. . .
. . .that they may be ashamed of their iniquities: and let them measure the pattern. And if they be ashamed of all that they have done . . .
. . . show them the form of the house, and the fashion thereof, and the goings out thereof, and the comings in thereof, and all the forms thereof, and all the ordinances thereof, and all the forms thereof, and all the laws thereof: and write it in their sight, that they may keep the whole form thereof, and all the ordinances thereof, and do them. This is the law (TORAH) of the house;. . .
. . .Upon the top of the mountain the whole limit thereof round about shall be most holy.
Behold, this is the law (TORAH) of the house.” (Ezekiel 43:10-12)
Behold, I will send my messenger ^3, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord ^4, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith YHWH of hosts. Malachi 3:1
And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD: Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.
And the crowns shall be to Helem, and to Tobijah, and to Jedaiah, and to Hen the son of Zephaniah, for a memorial in the temple of the LORD.
And they that are far off shall come and build in the temple of the LORD, and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you. And this shall come to pass, if ye will diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God. (Zech 6:12-15)
And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice (saw-make) before the LORD your God seven days. (Lev 23:40)
