More about the word COVENANT

While the Hebrew word beriyt means “covenant”
the cultural background of the word is helpful in
understanding its full meaning. Beriyt comes from
the parent root word bar meaning grain. Grains
were fed to livestock to fatten them up to prepare
them for the slaughter. Two other Hebrew words
related to beriyt and also derived from the parent
root bar can help understand the meaning of
beriyt. The word beriy means fat and barut means
meat. Notice the common theme with bar, beriy
and barut, they all have to do with the
slaughtering of livestock. The word beriyt is
literally the animal that is slaughtered for the
covenant ceremony. The phrase “make a
covenant” is found thirteen times in the Hebrew
Bible. In the Hebrew text this phrase is “karat
beriyt”. The word karat literally means “to cut”.
When a covenant is made a fattened animal is cut
into pieces and laid out on the ground. Each party
of the covenant then passes through the pieces
signifying that if one of the parties fails to meet
the agreement then the other has the right to do
to the other what they did to the animal (see
Genesis 15:10 and Jeremiah 34:18-20).

We are a husband and wife in covenant with ABBA YaHuWaH. Together we are taking the truth of Scripture to the Nations through our personal studies of the Paleo Aleph Bet and how that applies to scripture for our lives. It is our earnest prayer that you take whatever you want to from this site and study it out for yourselves. We have inherited LIES from our fathers and the translations of today are riddled with error and watered down doctrine from men each trying to sell their agenda of their denomination. It is time for the houses of Ephraim and Yahudah to wake up and unite. `•.¸ ☆ Shalom Aleichem !!!´¯`•.¸☆¸.• ´¯`•.¸☆ “GIVE EAR, O heavens, and I [Moses] will speak; and let the earth hear the words of my mouth. My message shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distill as the dew, as the light rain upon the tender grass, and as the showers upon the herb. For I will proclaim the name [and presence] of YaHuWaH. Concede and ascribe greatness to our Elohim. He is the Rock, His work is perfect, for all His ways are law and justice. A Elohim of faithfulness without breach or deviation, just and right is He.” ‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭32:1-4‬ Abba YaHuWaH is calling His people from the four corners of the earth to return to Him.
