I am currently in the mode of reading different books of the KJV or HNV bible.  The bible software that I use lets you set up reading plans.  I just set them up as HE leads.  Below are documented some of the things HE points out as I read through the scriptures.

2/28/2005 -- I am no longer using the HNV (Hebrew Names Version).  It omits a few of verses.  I started using The Scriptures '98, it has the names converted to the original names.


I Peter 3 In reading through this chapter in I Peter; there is scripture that reveals that we should do righteousness even if it means we will suffer.  This teaching is all but missing in today's modern "little c" church (babylon).  In babylon more often than not we were/are taught that if you are suffering, then you are doing something wrong; i.e. you have sin in your life.  Verse 14 is contrary to this thought.  We have to realize that Yeshua the Messiah suffered, and we are to pattern our lives after Yeshua.  Why should we think then that our lives should be without suffering?

1 Peter 3:11-22 HNV
11 Let him turn away from evil, and do good. Let him seek peace, and pursue it.
12 For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears open to their prayer; but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil."
13 Now who is he who will harm you, if you become imitators of that which is good?
14 But even if you should suffer for righteousness' sake, you are blessed. "Don't fear what they fear, neither be troubled."
15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts; and always be ready to give an answer to everyone who asks you a reason concerning the hope that is in you, with humility and fear:
16 having a good conscience; that, while you are spoken against as evildoers, they may be disappointed who curse your good manner of life in Messiah.
17 For it is better, if it is God's will, that you suffer for doing well than for doing evil.
18 Because Messiah also suffered for sins once, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring you to God; being put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit;
19 in which he also went and preached to the spirits in prison,
20 who before were disobedient, when God waited patiently in the days of Noach, while the teivah was being built. In it, few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.
21 This is a symbol of immersion, which now saves you--not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God, through the resurrection of Yeshua the Messiah,
22 who is at the right hand of God, having gone into heaven, angels and authorities and powers being made subject to him.

Zechariah 7 We must be careful of our motives.  YHWH knows our motives as HE questions in verse 5 and 6. 
We must also be careful that we decide not to act upon what we hear from YHWH.  YHWH warned the people.  Not only was it a warning, it was also direction of what they should do; verses 9 & 10.  The people turned their backs and followed after their own lusts; verses 11 & 12.  Then YHWH's wrath came upon those people, but when they cried out to YHWH, HE did not listen to their cries; verses 12 - 14. 
We have to draw closer to HIM to know HIM.  It says in James 4:6 draw nigh unto YHWH and YHW will draw nigh unto you.  We must know him well enought to know HIS voice from th tempting voice of the devil.

Zechariah 7:1-14 HNV
1 It happened in the fourth year of king Daryavesh that the word of the LORD came to Zekharyah in the fourth day of the ninth month, the month of Kislev.
2 The people of Beit-El sent Sar'etzer and Regem-Melekh, and their men, to entreat the LORD's favor,
3 and to speak to the Kohanim of the house of the LORD of Armies, and to the prophets, saying, "Should I weep in the fifth month, separating myself, as I have done these so many years?"
4 Then the word of the LORD of Armies came to me, saying,
5 "Speak to all the people of the land, and to the Kohanim, saying, 'When you fasted and mourned in the fifth and in the seventh month for these seventy years, did you at all fast to me, really to me?
6 When you eat, and when you drink, don't you eat for yourselves, and drink for yourselves?
7 Aren't these the words which the LORD proclaimed by the former prophets, when Yerushalayim was inhabited and in prosperity, and its cities around her, and the South and the lowland were inhabited?'"
8 The word of the LORD came to Zekharyah, saying,
9 "Thus has the LORD of Armies spoken, saying, 'Execute true judgment, and show kindness and compassion every man to his brother.
10 Don't oppress the widow, nor the fatherless, the foreigner, nor the poor; and let none of you devise evil against his brother in your heart.'
11 But they refused to listen, and turned their backs, and stopped their ears, that they might not hear.
12 Yes, they made their hearts as hard as flint, lest they might hear the law, and the words which the LORD of Armies had sent by his Spirit by the former prophets. Therefore great wrath came from the LORD of Armies.
13 It has come to pass that, as he called, and they refused to listen, so they will call, and I will not listen," said the LORD of Armies;
14 "but I will scatter them with a whirlwind among all the nations which they have not known. Thus the land was desolate after them, so that no man passed through nor returned: for they made the pleasant land desolate."

James 4:7 I will confess positively that resisting temptation is easy.  Sometimes though it is just the contrary, especially with the things that we really battle our flesh on.  Remember Yeshua was tempted in the wilderness.  He was tempted and resisted the temptation three times.  We must be persistent.  Yeshua resisted the devil three times before the devil fled.  How many more times should we???

James 4:7 HNV
7 Be subject therefore to God. But resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Matthew 4:1-11 HNV
1 Then Yeshua was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.
2 When he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was hungry afterward.
3 The tempter came and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread."
4 But he answered, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.'"
5 Then the devil took him into the holy city. He set him on the pinnacle of the temple,
6 and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written, 'He will give his angels charge concerning you.' and, 'On their hands they will bear you up, so that you don't dash your foot against a stone.'"
7 Yeshua said to him, "Again, it is written, 'You shall not test the Lord, your God.'"
8 Again, the devil took him to an exceedingly high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world, and their glory.
9 He said to him, "I will give you all of these things, if you will fall down and worship me."
10 Then Yeshua said to him, "Get behind me, Hasatan! For it is written, 'You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.'"
11 Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and served him.
