  1. Yehushua was a priest of the order of Melchizedek. Gentiles are of the dispersed Tribes of Israel, we all can go boldly before the throne of Grace because of Yehushua’s work of removing the curse of our sin, making us clean (with repentance) to enter the Holy of Holies directly.

  2. Mary, the Ark As Revealed in Mary’s Visit to Elizabeth

    Golden Box: Ark of the Old Covenant Mary: Ark of the New Covenant
    The ark traveled to the house of Obed-edom in the hill country of Judea (2 Sam. 6:1-11). Mary traveled to the house of Elizabeth and Zechariah in the hill country of Judea (Luke 1:39).
    Dressed as a priest, David danced and leapt in front of the ark (2 Sam. 6:14). John the Baptist – of priestly lineage – leapt in his mother’s womb at the approach of Mary (Luke 1:41).
    David asks, “How can the ark of the Lord come to me?” (2 Sam. 6:9). Elizabeth asks, “Why is this granted me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?” (Luke 1:43).
    David shouts in the presence of the ark (2 Sam. 6:15). Elizabeth “exclaimed with a loud cry” in the presence of the Mary (Luke 1:42).
    The ark remained in the house of Obed-edom for three months (2 Sam. 6:11). Mary remained in the house of Elizabeth for three months (Luke 1:56).
    The house of Obed-edom was blessed by the presence of the ark (2 Sam. 6:11). The word blessed is used three times; surely the house was blessed by God (Luke 1:39-45).
    The ark returns to its home and ends up in Jerusalem, where God’s presence and glory is revealed in the temple (2 Sam. 6:12; 1 Kgs. 8:9-11). Mary returns home and eventually ends up in Jerusalem, where she presents God incarnate in the temple (Luke 1:56; 2:21-22)

    • Excellent explanation, but these people do not even regard the manna come down from heaven, the body and soul of our Lord, found in every church through out the world.

  3. There is no problem if a person wants to study and teach the Tabernacle, but if the Tabernacle is a foreshadow of what was to come then it is important to show the Jewish people who is the foreshadow referring to.   By the way, the way to get close to God is to deny oneself, take up the cross and follow Christ, through this the Spirit of God by the Word of God will allow one to walk with God and know God through Yeshua.     

    The word of God is about Yeshua!  The Messianic movement all they talk about is TORAH, TORAH, TORAH and forget about the primary message of the salvation of God through Yeshua.  Many are so caught up with the Tabernacle that they are being deprived from walking with God and knowing God.

    The above is not an attack on Rico and it is good that he continuous this study, but I will ask Rico one question, how is this enlightening the mind of the Jews, are you going to them?  If not, maybe it is time for you to sit with them and show them because through the Tabernacle Yeshua can be seen.


  4. Judaism is not a race, so Iddon’t know why he says you can test genetically. Kohanim only married other cohen, so that is why there’s some genetic markers, but it is NOT a race.

    • Science states that there are 4 races..white,black,red,yellow. Genesis states we are made from the dust of the ground [ gen 2;7 ]. BBC gardening[*] states there are 6 types of soil…Clay,Sandy,Silty,Peaty,Chalky,Loamy. So maybe there are 6 races! I guess we should all strive to be Loamy! [*]

  5. And the name yaweh is a made up English word invented on the misunderstanding of the tetragram, YHVH, yud hey vov hey. The actual pronunciation of the name was only known by some high priest in ancient Israel, and has been lost to time, like the ark of the covenant. Fyi the blessed VirginMary is the new ark, the new eve etc.. she held the true presence of God incarnate, the word, the manna, all that was contained in the old ark.a

  6. YaHoVa is pronounceable…
    not lost just hidden.
    Ark may have been mary for a few months. The Arc is in His people, The Body that houses His Holy Spirit.

  7. !!JESUSCHRIST  is the same yesterday today and forever, !JESUS! our Savior He still saves   J-E-S-U-S  S-A-V-E-S  our Lord J-E-S-U-S  Can you say it? AMEN?

  8. Great video! Would you maybe know what the significance of using sapphire tablets for the commandments, as the book of Jasher states?

  9. The commandments written on stone.

    And ‘the scholar’ in the video asks, “Why stone by the way, why not paper?” His answer? “Stone was a way of a witness of a covenant.” Huh?

    I am amazed at the dancing answers that come out of ‘scholars’ sometimes. Why STONE? STONE? ROCK? ROCK? How about the real reason?

    2 Samuel 22:2
    He said: “The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;

    Psalms 18:2
    The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

    THAT’S WHY. Because the ROCK/STONE the TEN were written on represented GOD in SYMBOL just as this יתרת was a SYMBOL and, by the way, NOT meant to be pronounced. EVER. You people that try and give the Creator of All Things a name/label blaspheme Him every time you do.

    Good luck with that.

  10. All knowledge on how to pronounce YHWH has been lost and instead of mispronouncing and mangling His Name and in effect disrespecting His Name we choose to say HaShem or ADONAI or Elohim

  11. Why you call “RICO – UP” for understanding? ONLY ELOHIM YeHuVaH give understand through his HOLY SPIRIT. So say YESHUA the Son of ELOHIM YeHuVaH. Believe What Yeshua say, for only though his instruction can anyone see TRUTH.
