She appears quiet, even soulful, but as conversation continues, in the blink of an eye can become animated and childlike. Just in her 70's, this author resides in the deep, deep waters of Jesus Christ, from a Jewish prospective.
In this, her fourth book: "A Cacophony of Treasured Finds," she takes you down pathes way less traveled, in Scripture, and writes of subjects most leaders will not touch on. Maybe because they are more comfortable sipping the milk of the Word of God, or, have not yet had an opportunity to delve into, and study the deepness of the Word, and teach of these hidden truths. Maybe, out of fear? Fear they might loose their congregation? Fear they cannot or will not want to get off the milk of the Word? Or, perhaps, its the money they will lose if they get into the meat of the Word and loose half, or more of their congregation?
This bold look at the Holy Scriptures takes you into a deeper level of Scripture and gives a whole different perspective than you are used to, and one where you are a spectator, looking on, at the subject's being written about.
The author's book, this time, can be viewed as a workbook, having places - sporadically - for your notes. A study - book for home or church gatherings, or just a wonderful "learning-tool" for yourself or your family as well.
Finally! A book rich in content that will deepen your walk with our Lord Savior, Jesus. Giving you fresh insights, viewpoints, at the turn of every page, comparing them with Scripture from your very own Bible.

A CACOPHONY OF TREASURED FINDS

Here, we will be applying a few statistical, or should we have said; an analysis to the past in Scripture, preferably the happening's between Genesis 1:1 and 2.
Adonai God and His Word, Yeshua, built, RE-built What is rightfully His to begin with, "Except the Lord build the house they labor in vain that build it ..." Psalms 127:1
Ecclesiastes 3:3, "... A time to break down and a time to build up." And Genesis 1:1-2 needed to be rebuilt up, for then is when satan fell from heaven and all his fallen angels with him. Scientists tell us a few miles under our earth's mantel, the part where we live, is solid rock before it becomes molten rock," The wise man builds his house on rock ..." Matt. 7:24, Lk. 6:48.
Our Savior said, "Which of you intending to build a tower does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has sufficient funds to finish it, lest—unhappily—after he has laid the foundation he is not able to finish it and all that see it begin to mock him." Luke 14:28, 29.
This is what God and Yeshua did between verses one and two when Yeshua said "I beheld satan fall from heaven like lightening ..." Luke 10:18.
Without the Word, Yeshua, the foundation of the second building of the world, after Genesis 1:2, same world, just had to be reshapened and everything rebuilt again, "For other foundation can no man lay then that is laid which is Christ Jesus." 1 Corinthians 3:11.
What? You were never taught all Scripture has more than one meaning? Scripture says, "It is the glory of God to conceal a thing the honor of Kings is to search out the matter." Proverbs 25:3. He said He would make us kings and priests in His—Yeshuas—Kingdom.
Our Father is the creator and just like any other Architect, others do the work for Him—them—. This is why each and every one of you reading God's work through these pages must understand each and every one of all-borrowed from the Greek word, ANTHROPO'S—with and English word attached. No one has ever taught you this before and we pray our heavenly Father to open your eyes to see—read and understand, all these anthropo's were created and finished on the sixth day of the creation of all the races of peoples on the face of this earth:
CREATION: "The act of creating. The act of producing or causing to exist. The fact of being created. The original bringing into existence of the universe by God. That which is or has been created. The world. The universe. Creatures Collectively. An original product of the mind especially an imaginative artists work."
"In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him and without Him there was not anything made that was made." John 1:1-3.
ARCHITECT: "A person." Person? Yes! God is a person, else He would not of said of Himself, "God is not a man that He should lie." Praise God He certainly is NOT a man.
"A person who engages in the profession of architecture, professionally engaged in the design of certain large constructions other than buildings and the like. The diviser, maker or creator of anything. To plan? Organize or structure as an architect."
Luke 14:28-32, "What man goes to build without sitting down to count the cost FIRST ..."
Now that we have an Architect who designs things and has them put into existence, what will He—God—our Architect build? Or have built?
Genesis chapter one, the Words "And God said" occurs nine times. The Words "And God saw" occurs only once. Every time our heavenly Father speaks, things come into existence. How can anyone speak without WORDS. Yeshua is the Word of God "made flesh and lived among us." John 1:1,2. Verse 3, "And without Him there was not anything made."
ARCHITECTURE: "The profession of designing buildings, open areas, communities, usually with some regard to aesthetic effect. The professional services of an architect often include design or selection of furnishings and decorations, supervision of construction work, the examination, restoration or remodeling of existing buildings. The structure of ANYTHING."
Genesis 2:5 "... Every, plant of the field before it was in the earth and every herb of the field before it grew for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth and there was not a MAN to (tend) till it." This speaks of the land area God intended to put the Garden of Eden. The land of Jerusalem where God said "Jerusalem is MY land. I have put My name." All herbs, plants of the field were in the earth and grew in the 1st chapter of Genesis. This is speaking of the garden in Gen. 2:
God is an archivest. He keeps records. And all you've just read and are about to read of the anthropo's are also His records:
ARCHIVES: "Documents or records relating to the activities, rights, claims, treaties, constitutions, etc. Any extensive record or collection of data are kept."
All my life I've heard preachers preach that Adam and Eve had son's and daughters, who copulated with one another, therefore populating the whole earth. This is one of satan's lies. A spawn of hell. At times, hearing this, makes me physically ill and I can no longer sit under these ministers preaching. I am 75 years old and was taught very differently, at the age of nine, that that,Adam and Eve were the first jews in the first Garden—Eden—thatAlmighty God ever created. Sure, He created trees, shrubs, flowers an herbs along with grass in Genesis chapter one, along with all the other races of the world, aside from the Israelites. Jewish Israelites were created on the eighth day AFTER Almighty God rested on the seventh day.
INCEST: "Sexual intercourse between closely related person's. The crime of sexual intercourse, cohabitation, or marriage between persons who are related."
All over the United States of America, it is a Crime to commit this atrocity. People are put in jail for this, and yet ministers still preach—to this day—Adam and Eve and their children committed this heinous crime. This is the secular world putting these people who commit this crime, in jail. Not the church.
Let me put it to you this way: My God did not create this, or think up this heinous atrocity of incest. Your God may have. Mine (again) didn't.
* * *
This, what follows, is the answer to Genesis 1:26-28, "And God said, 'Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, the fowl of the air, over the cattle, over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth ..." Five times God said "let us give them dominion over ..." Meaning all the five days BEFORE He—They—made man in their own image.
"... So God created man in His image, in the image of God created He him male and female created He them ..."
This verse, verse 27, alone, mentions "God created He them" three times. At the Seminary we are taught when God repeats Himself twice, its time for a "heads-up people!" God has something important He wants you to pay attention too. Two times "give me your attention. Three times? Your undivided attention is needed here. So, listen up people!
"... And God blessed them and God said to them 'Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the (second time) the fish of the sea, the fowl of the air, every living thing that moves upon the earth."
A word or two, or three, about the word ANTHROPO: "It is a learned, borrowing from the Greek, meaning "HUMAN," used in the formation of compound words—Greek anthropo (s) meaning—man."
* * *
ANTHROPOCENTRIC: adjective. "1 – Regarding man as the central fact of the universe. 2 – Assuming man to be the final aim and end of the universe. 3 – Viewing and interpreting everything in terms of human experience and values." ALMIGHTY GOD
On the 6th day of creation our Father YHWH said to His WORD—His One and Only Son—Yeshua, "Let us make man in our own image "Gen. 1:26, 27; "... In the image of God He made man." Gen. 9:6.
Genesis 2:7; YHWH "formed Adam out of the dust of the earth" outside the plot of land God had laid out for His garden He would call Eden. All the races of people on earth were made in the image of God and Yeshua on the 6th day. Gen. 2:1-6 "On the 7th day God rested from all his work. v-7 then on the 8th day "God formed Adam out of the dust of the earth."
Job 7:17, 15:14, Ps. 8:4, 144:3, Heb. 2:6, "Who or what is man that You (God) are so mindful of him?"
ANTHROPOGENESIS: "The genesis or development of the human race, especially as a subject of scientific study. Anthropogenetic."
ANTHROPOGEOGRAPHY: "A branch of anthropology dealing with the geographical distribution of mankind and the relationship between man and his environment." Gen. 1:26.
"And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord and went to live (dwell) in the land of Nod on the East side of the Garden of Eden, took a wife and knew her and she conceived and bare a son naming him ENOCH." Genesis 4:16, 17. Lets make this a little more clearer. Cain's son Enoch—by no means—is the righteous Enoch the father of Methuselah. This Enoch lived 365 years (same amt. of days in our calendar). This Enoch, "And Enoch walked with God: and then he was not for God caught him up to be with Him." Gen. 5:23, 24.
Cain, the first born's father was satan! "Not as Cain who was of that wicked one (the devil of Rev. 12:) who murdered his brother." 1 John 3:12.
ANTHROPOGRAPHY: "The branch of anthropology that describes the varieties of mankind and their geographical distribution."
Has been explained above from the word Anthropogeography. Nod is one place around the world where Cain took flight away from God, found a wife in Nod and married her.
There is no way—on this earth—from its beginning to end, or the world to come, did MY Father in heaven create, or even cause incest, as every preacher I've ever heard in all the days of my very long life; have preached, "Adam and Eve had more children than just Cain and Abel, they had girls too. How else did Cain get a wife!" My dear friends and loved ones, these preachers are preaching "incest is alright with God. After all Cain married his sister!" No! no! no! no! no!
This is the spirit of antichrist that Paul wrote about after our Lord had ascended back into heaven. Paul said the spirit of antichrist was in the world as he was writing his books. Way to go Paul! Our Father did not, or ever will, sanction incest! Not to mention how grossly—sick and utterly disgusting even the mere mention of the word makes me feel ugh—ugh—ugh! Again and again.
ANTHROPOLOGIST: "One who specializes in Anthropology."
Anthropoid means resembling man. Anthropoids in the shape of a man, we all know who is the master of that—satan. Read Revelation chapters 12 and 13 and you will see that it can be none other than satan. Especially since satan (antichrist) makes his false prophet create an image of himself, then causes all to take his mark and bow down to his engraved image."
ANTHROPOLOGY: "The science that deals with the origins, physical and cultural development, racial characteristics, and social customs and beliefs of mankind. The study of man's similarity to and divergence from other animals. The science of man and his works (also called philosophical anthropology). The study of the nature and essence of man."
ESSENCE: "The basic, real, and unvariable nature of a person or thing, or its significant individual feature or features."
Apot for our kitchen-stove is made to: hold things—to heat things in. It is made to withstand large amounts of heat temperatures, and yet it can hold cold things as well. Whether liquid or solid. Our bodies hold all things in as well.
Man is made of dirt and to survive must eat and drink things coming from the earth. Even the heat we use in winter time, some comes from the earth, some from the atmosphere—electricity. Our spirit and soul which lives in our "hand-full of worms," a fisherman once said of our brain must be fed also or it too will die. Food for our spirit and soul is YHWH's only WORD He left with us to study on a daily basis. After all, where is our learning ability placed for us? In our frontal-lobe. The right side of our brain as well as our left side, are our creative areas. We can create any and everything we set our two sided brain to do, with our pre-frontal-lobe as well.
YHWH'S WISDOM BEYOND MEASURE
All of the above speaks only of our Father in heaven, His One Only Son Yeshua and the Holy Spirit that Jesus Himself said would come and live in our hearts. He said that when He went back to His rightful home in heaven He said "I will not leave you orphans. I will pray the Father and He will send you another comforter who will come live in your hearts until the end of the age."
Nothing breaks the heart of God like our rejection of Jesus Christ!

Before we begin and you, the reader, become so irate at me you slam the book shut, perhaps the definition of a few choice words might ease your anger, somewhat.
Second, we'll review the word CREATURE again. You'd be surprised at the many, many people who think they know what the word means but really do not:
CREATURE: "Anything created, whether animate or inanimate. An animal, a person; human-being. A person who owes his or her position or fortune to someone or something under whose control or influence they continue to live, work or survive."
Scripture says we are all born in sin, from which we must be redeemed from. Thus, John 3:16, was born. Of which our Savior said "There is none righteous except our Father in heaven." Man cannot redeem man. Why? Because satan even told our Savior "All the world I will give to you if you will bow down and worship me." This after he'd shown our Savior the riches and "what—nots" of the world, Matthew 4:9. Luke 4:6, satan says to our Lord "... All this power I will give to you and the glory of them for they have been delivered to me and to who ever I will give it." satan is a spirit. God is a spirit, satan showed Yeshua worldly things. He is in charge of the world, dirt is of this world. We—Creatures—are made of dirt therefore we must be redeemed from dirt, is why Yeshua said "You must be born again, by water—your mothers womb—and of the spirit." We—this pile of dirt.—have a spirit and soul living within it. Our spirit and soul lives in our brain. Look it up! Don't just take my word for it. Our spirit needs redeemed from this "pile of dirt," and it took Yeshua—Gods Word "made flesh," and His God part of that "... A body You have prepared for Me" Hebrews 10:5. As we've said before man cannot save man from a devil's hell. It took a sacrifice of part man (pile of dirt) part God "This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!" To redeem us from spirit, and earth that equals dirt. Which brings us to the word
MATTER: "The substance or substances of which any physical object consists of or is composed: The matter of which the earth is made, whether solid, liquid or gaseous, especially as distinguished from incorporeal substance as spirit or mind, or from qualities, actions and the like. That which OCCUPIES SPACE."
Which brings us to the word FLESH. Flesh is MATTER and matter is flesh. Both are substances.
FLESH: "The soft substance of an animal or a human body consisting of muscle and fat. The substance or tissue in animals viewed as an article of food, usually excluding fish and sometimes fowl; meat. The body. Physical body of man or animals nature distinguished from their moral or spiritual nature.
LIVING CREATURES: ie "in the flesh," before ones eyes. To overlay or cover a FRAME, skeletal, with flesh or fleshlike substance."
All of these, flesh, matter, or matter, flesh, are Adonai God's creation by the Hand of Yeshua; John 1:3, "All things were made by Him and without Him there was not anything made." Now, let us back up to verses 1 and 2, especially since Yeshua is the living, touchable WORD of Adonai God, "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word WAS God. The same was in the beginning with God." Genesis 1:1-26. "... Let us make man in our image."
