Here's how to get the most out of this site: Read every article thoughtfully and completely, word for word, and then take the time to research every claim, every alleged fact, and every reference supplied for support. If you are unwilling to do that, then I will save you some time and let you know right now that my site will be of little use to you.
You see, the Bless Yah web site is not for the spiritually insincere. I define spiritual insincerity as "a detached disinterest and uncaring disregard toward getting to know Yahowah through the study and first-hand application of His Word."
If, in your heart of hearts, you know that you fit that description, then I would like to offer you an opportunity to make a life-changing choice. Right now, today, this very minute, decide to either get with the program or give up your play-acting altogether. If you choose against becoming a serious, hard-working student and active doer of His Word, then go all the way and admit to yourself that your "love of God and the things of God" is a self-serving charade. Admit it to yourself, admit it your Maker, and wash your hands of the whole thing. Be done with it. Stop deceiving yourself and stop trying to convince others that you're other than who you really are. Quit wasting your time. Go your way in peace. Eat, drink, and be merry. Enjoy your time here. You are free to do that, you know.
Don't worry: when you die, you won't be sent to "a sinner's hell" to be tormented forever and ever by a sadistic god-thing. Rather, you will just die: your soul will be annihilated (you won't feel it); you will be dead and gone, literally. So if fear of "Hell" has been keeping you playing the religion game, now you know the truth. You don't have to placate some hateful super-spirit in the heavens to avoid being tortured for all eternity. That scenario is a lie; it is a myth of religion. If you do not want to know Yahowah, then when your allotted life-span is over, you will die and that will be the end of it. It's your choice.
Yahowah has given us life so that we might use it to accept and participate in His Family-Oriented Covenant. His desire is that we would get to know Him through His Towrah, which means "teaching" and which does not mean "law". So if we choose to refuse His gift of the Towrah, if we choose not to accept the terms and conditions of His Family-Oriented Covenant, then Yahowah will let us die. That will frustrate His purpose for your life, but He will let it happen if that is what we choose to do. It's about loving Him, getting to know Him, understanding Him. It isn't about doing whatever it takes to keep an angry, hateful, vindictive Almighty from smashing our heads in and abusing us for ages and ages.
Now, those who choose to reject Yahowah's Family-Oriented Covenant are those to whom Dode (See note below) referred when he wrote,
Song / Mizmowr / Psalm 10:4 (See note below.)
through the pride of his countenance,
will not seek after God;
God is not in all his thoughts.
Here on my site I say some things that sound harsh. Why? Because I feel indignant towards those who do not highly value my heavenly Father, and because I hate those who promote religions and every other device of man. I will say such things because it is written in the prophet, Yermiyah:
Yah has loosed / Yermiyah / Jeremiah 48:10
Rejected be he that does the work of Yahowah with a slack hand,
and unaccepted be he that keeps back his sword from blood!
In other words, it is right and good for me to be on fire for Yahowah and His Word, and it is right and good for me to not spare your feelings (i.e., figuratively, to draw emotional blood with the sword of His Word). I will say such things because it is my way of loving you in Spirit and in truth.
Word Pictures / Mishlay / Proverbs 27:6
Faithful are the wounds of a friend.
If you are not enthusiastic and diligent in your pursuit of the treasures of His wisdom as revealed in His Word, then you will not know the truth, and you will never be able to do the Father's will because you won't know what it is. You will never get to know Him in an intimate, family sort of way, which is His strongest desire for you. Instead, you will continue to sleep-walk through this life, and at the end you will either cease to exist or, if you went to your grave promoting one or more of man's schemes of self-rulership, then you will be given eternal life only to hear Yahowsha Himself tell you, "I never knew you. Get away from Me!" Only it won't be a One-on-one interview. You won't deserve that kind of privileged communication with the righteous One. No, you will be part of a huge herd of other wasted souls, whom the Good Shepherd calls "the goats" and whom He will address as a group.
Heel Grabber / Ya'aqob / James 1:22-25
And become doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. Because if anyone is a hearer of the Word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror. He looks at himself and goes away, immediately forgetting what he looks like. But he that looks into the perfect Towrah (teaching, instruction, guidance for living, means to resolve disputes) of freedom and continues in it, not becoming a hearer that forgets, but a doer of the work, this one shall be blessed in his doing.
Does All of This Sound Off-the-Wall?
If all of this sounds off-the-wall to you, then do the right thing: perform your own thorough research into the validity of my claims and allegations. All you need is a good Hebrew-English lexicon and a reliable Greek-English lexicon. With those, you will be able to prove to yourself that I am telling you the truth about your Bible translations, and from there you can embark on this exciting journey with Yahowah to uncover His Truth. You might also consider getting any or all of the resources listed [here]. While Dr. Strong's work is good, it is not infallible because he was so completely influenced by Christianity. So you will not want to take what he says as "the whole truth". It is always a good idea to consult mutiple resources whenever you can.
Contrary to religion's preachings, Yahowah really has allowed His Word to be corrupted through the ages. He had to! Otherwise, He would have been interfering with free will. He allowed His Words to be misquoted in the Protected Enclosure of Eden when He let the adversary misrepresent them to Chawa (wrongly named Eve by religion), and He has allowed it to be corrupted ever since. But He has also kept open the way to dig through the corruption to get to the treasure of His truths. It just takes time and real effort. The lazy and complacent ones won't ever find it. Those who want to sit in a pew once or twice a week and let someone else tell them what "the Bible" says and what it means won't ever find it. They don't deserve to.
If you are one of those who will immediately seek out a member of the clergy or some other "knowledgeable" person, then my site isn't for you. You aren't ready yet. If you would trust a member of the clergy or anyone else who evangelizes for their religion or cause, then you're still thoroughly blinded and nothing here will help you.
Better would be to do your own research using all the resources available to you commercially and on line.
Christian clerics and other defenders of Pauline doctrine are like the false envoy, Paul. Paul pronounced a curse on anyone who dared to disagree with his version of the Beneficial and Healing Message (aka, the Gospel), which he never got right, and he publicly threatened to personally punish those in Corinth who disobeyed his teachings.
Religion's supporters are so deceived that Yahowsha went so far as to call them blind. Many of them really do think they see clearly, but if you do the research I am urging you to do, you will learn that they see absolutely nothing clearly, for their vision is fogged by their religious teachings. They worship Him in vain, "teaching as doctrines the commandments of men," when He doesn't want to be worshipped at all. It is perfectly all right—in fact, it's the only reasonable response—to reject them and their Towrah-rejecting teachings.
Similarly, it is foolish in the extreme to seek them out for answers, seeing that they have set themselves against Yahowah by rejecting His Name and choosing to disregard and set aside His teachings, guidelines, and instructions, the Towrah. So don't go running to your pastor or Sunday School teacher or that lady at work who seems to know the Bible really well. Do your own homework! Got it?
Thus, the Bless Yahowah web site targets those who are determined to think for themselves, who refuse to have their thoughts spoon-fed to them by others, who are motivated to do their own research, and who will work with all diligence to prove or disprove the things presented here (even if they think they've seen it all before and already know all about that particular "personal doctrine"). And once they are convinced of the truth, they will become doers of the Word. They who study and do His Word are the only ones who really love the Father. And we will be the only ones invited to share eternity with Him as His children, with all the rights and privileges thereto pertaining.

Song / Mizmowr / Psalm 19:7
Yahowah's Towrah is complete and entirely perfect, returning and restoring the soul. Yahowah's testimony is trustworthy and reliable, making understanding and obtaining wisdom simple for the open-minded and receptive.
Yahowah's () Towrah (torah – teaching, guidance, direction, and instruction) is complete and entirely perfect (tamym – without defect, lacking nothing, correct, genuine, right, helpful, beneficial, and true), returning and restoring (suwb – transforming) the soul (nepesh – consciousness). Yahowah's testimony ('eduwth – restoring and eternal witness) is trustworthy and reliable ('aman – verifiable, confirming, supportive, and establishing), making understanding and obtaining wisdom (hakam – educating and enlightening oneself to the point of comprehension) simple for the open-minded and receptive (pethy – easy for those who are receptive).
Dowd / David
"Dowd" is an accurate transliteration of the Hebrew name we usually see rendered as David. It rhymes with "code" and it means "love". Dowd's name is spelled dalet-waw-dalet in Hebrew. The Hebrew character "waw" (ו) sounds like a long "ō" in English when we find it in Hebrew words such as "tōrah", "shalōm", "gōwym", etc. Since we know that the waw carries the sound of the long "ō" in English, we know how to pronounce the sweet psalmist's name correctly.
If I wrote "Dwd", you wouldn't know what pronunciation I'm trying to convey. Were I to spell it "Dod", you might think I was meaning for it to rhyme with "odd". Similarly, were I to spell his name as "Dowd", you might think I mean for it to sound like "loud".
Remember, too, that Hebrew had no "v" until around 1948 when those devils, the rabbis, decided to change the sound of the Hebrew letter "waw" to aid them in their plot to obfuscate Yahowah's Name.
Song / Mizmowr / Psalms
The actual name of the book in Hebrew is "Mizmowr", which means "song" or "melody". "Psalms" is a Greek word and has no place in Yahowah's Hebrew records.
Hell / Gehenna
Gehenna was the city dump for Yarushalaim (Jerusalem). Located some distance outside the walls of the city proper, Gehenna was where all the town's garbage went to be burned. It is used as a metaphor for the abode of the unsaved dead, the souls of those considered by Yahowah to be trash, worthless, good for nothing. Moreover, the valley in which Gehenna is located was used by the pagans of old as the place where they would sacrifice their children as burnt offerings to their god, Molech. This too might explain how it came to be associated with abhorrent souls, such as all those who practice religious rites and traditions.
