On February 29, 2020, I had the honor to visit an event at the Rossell African-American History Awareness Museum and I had the honor of meeting Mrs. Carolyn Rossell, the founder of the museum. Over the years she has collected and cherished so much history. While she graciously took all the visitors on a guided tour, what stood out to me the most, was how much of our people had been held back or was the first to invent and accomplish so much from Medicine, Math, Aviation, Science and the list goes on and on. So much we were never taught in school. How much was actually stolen from us.
I learned about Katherine Johnson, who was an American Mathematician whose calculations of orbital mechanics as a NASA employee were critical to the first US Space flights. Then there's Henrietta Lacks who was an African-American woman whose cancer cells are the source of the He La cell line, the first immortalized human cell line and one of the most important cell lines in medical research. Then there's Dr. Patricia Bath, the first African American female doctor to receive a medical patent after she invented a more precise treatment of cataracts. She was an early pioneer of laser cataract surgery. Another great was Bessie Coleman, the first female African American woman to earn a pilot's license. Because flying schools in the United States denied her entry, she taught herself French and moved to France, earning her license from Frances's well-known Caudron Brothers School of Aviation in just seven months.

Are You Protecting Your Eternal Life Insurance?
In this present world we live in on Earth, a life insurance policy is a contract with an insurance company. In exchange for premium payments, the insurance company provides a lump-sum payment, known as a death benefit, to the beneficiaries upon the insured’s death. Do you know that you are protected only as long as you keep paying your insurance or else you and your loved ones have no security.
Are you preparing for Eternal Life?
Yahshua Messiah paid our purchase price with His precious blood. One of the benefits is a more abundant life. (John 10:10).
The best eternal life policy is with Yahweh Elohim and his son Yahshua Messiah. Another benefit of Yahweh’s Eternal Life Insurance is by knowing the Sacred Saving comfirmed names of our Father and His son. There are so many benefits in choosing Yahweh’s Eternal Life Insurance Plan now before death. We are promised a more abundant life free from sickness, sorrow and death. Our dues have been paid by Yahshua Messiah, but in order to hold onto our paid up policy, we cannot afford to be mislead or listen to false advertisement from those other insurance companies: you know, the false doctrines, false prophets, churches etc. and the head of the Other Insurance Company, better known as Satan’s guaranteed eternal death.
Acts 4:12 tells us, Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other Name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. There’s a protection plan with Yahweh. (Psalms 91:14-16) Because he hath set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known My Name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him My salvation.
Our Eternal Life Insurance is protected by daily bible study and by creating a relationship with Father Yahweh and His son Yahshua Messiah.
Are you studying to show yourself approved unto Yahweh? (II Timothy 2:15-16)?
I remember as a child growing up in Cincinnati, Ohio, every Saturday, the insurance man would come to our house to collect the insurance payments. Did you know that our Heavenly Father Yahweh Elohim and His Son Yahshua Messiah will be stopping by your house in this present day according to scripture to confirm their names?
When they arrive, will you have the correct names on your policy, if not you don’t want to be carrying the incorrect policy with the names of other deities. Will this be a happy visitation or will your policy be cancelled if Father Yahweh has to connect with you at his visitation.
This is the time of year when so many insurance companies are competing for your business. Offering so many options. Well, Satan is busy working overtime, competing for your soul, offering you every false doctrine under the sun.
With Yahweh’s Eternal Life Insurance Plan, (This Gospel), the following is offered:
My Sisters, I challenge you to do all you can to keep this Eternal Life Insurance Plan, (This True End Time Gospel).
Is your Eternal Life Insurance Plan current with Yahweh Elohim and Yahshua Messiah or has it lapsed?
A Spiritual Family Reunion –
Dedicated to my late mother Evelyn Edwards (a faithful servant of Yahshua the Messiah)
---By Sister Cathy Edwards
It is often said – “When the matriarch or patriarch dies the family unravels.” My late mother, Evelyn Edwards aka Tee Lena, was the eldest sibling in her family and she was a true matriarch. I can remember my first cousin hugging me the day of her funeral and saying, “Now that Tee Lena is gone – the family will never be the same.” Unfortunately, she was right. My family has never had the cohesiveness that it had when my mother was alive. As a matriarch she had the ability to call the family together in good times and in bad and everyone listened.
The last family reunion we had was July 4, 2008; and my mother was gravely sick from breast cancer and chemo treatments but yet she made it to the family circle to give her love, words of wisdom and encouragement to all that were gathered. I marveled that even at her lowest she was the highest of women. She had that innate ability to make everyone feel like they were special.
She would pass away a year later and she gave me a gift as she laid dying. When the home health nurse came that day my mother appeared to be sound asleep. The nurse called her and woke her up. My mother opened her eyes and looked startled and said, “You interrupted me! I was walking down a beautiful street and you interrupted me!” In the background I had gospel music playing on a cable station and Candi Staton’s “Mama” (listen to the song below).
The home health nurse was overwhelmed and started to tear up. She told me to call the family. My mother passed away that night with all her loved ones gathered around her bedside singing gospel hymns and celebrating her life.
We are soon to experience a Universal Family Reunion where all the members of Yahweh’s household will gather and sing praises to our Heavenly Father, Yahweh and his son, Yahshua! We will be gathered in Yahrusalem above (Galatians 4:26) and we will all have one name (Ephesians 3:15). Until then we must be in constant preparation not to miss so great a celebration!! I often wondered why it is death that brings families together and not life? A child is born and a few call with congratulations and gifts. Been when a matriarch or patriarch dies we all know we must be in attendance to witness their life and how they touched us individually. Likewise, the spiritual family reunion began with Yahshua’s death, burial, resurrection and ascension back to the right hand of the Father for us to be gathered together again.
The Apostle Paul wrote of this great spiritual family reunion on this wise in I Corinthians 15:13-28: “But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Messiah not risen: And if Messiah be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. Yea, and we are found false witnesses of Elohim; because we have testified of Elohim that he raised up the Messiah: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not. For if the dead rise not, then is not Messiah raised: And if Messiah be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. Then they also which are fallen asleep in Messiah are perished. If in this life only we have hope in Messiah, we are of all men most miserable. But now is Messiah risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in the Messiah shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: the Messiah the firstfruits; afterward they that are the Messiah's at his coming.
Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to Yahweh, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that Yahweh may be all in all.”
So I’m looking forward to meeting my mother along that beautiful street and running into the kingdom with her to give Yahweh Elohim Yahshua glory throughout all eternity!
Shalom, my Sisters!

Have you ever felt as if you were not enough or even good enough?
I believe there are times in our lives where we have been face with feeling this way or made to feel this way about ourselves. I know there were times in my life when I did not see myself as being good enough or smart enough and it made me feel as if I was not important and did not matter. If you find yourself having these thoughts about yourself and feeling as if you are not enough well these are lies of the devil and have no place in our minds.
I heard a song on the radio the other day by Lauren Daigle called ''You Say"' and its now my go to song. I have placed the lyrics down below because we have a father Yahweh Elohim who loves us more than we love ourselves. He loved us so much he gave his only begotten son Yahshua to die for us so that we may have eternal life John 17:3 You are loved my sisters and you are important and you matter.
keep fighting voices in my mind that say I’m not enough
Every single lie that tells me I will never measure up
Am I more than just the sum of every high and every low?
Remind me once again just who I am, because I need to know (ooh oh)
You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, oh You say that I am Yours
We have a creator that says we are enough and that we are loved more than we know.
Sisters you are strong and not weak, you are being held in our father Yahweh's arms and he will not let you fall and will never leave you and that you belong to him. Hebrews 13:5 for he hath said, I will never leave thee nor forsake thee HalleluYAH!
We have peace in knowing our Father Yahweh loves us for Mark 12:30 we are to love our creator Yahweh Elohim Yahshua with all of our heart, mind and soul, and with all thy strength for this is the first commandment HalleluYAH! and please keep this in mind my sisters in Yah please love yourself and know you are enough because our creator Yahweh told us we were.
Peace and love my sisters in Yah!
Hello Sisters of Yahshua University.
My name is Sister Chesli and I would like to first thank everyone for allowing me to be a part of such a warm and loving sisterhood. A little about myself, I am 39 years old, a full time student, I home school my daughter, I have two businesses with my husband and I also exercise 3-4 times a week along with meditate daily.
I have been married for 12 years and have such a wonderful husband Gregory Lesesne and an amazing daughter La’Niyah Lesesne who is 8 years old. I enjoy spending every moment that I possibly can with my family. So with that being said I want to be here as long as YAH allows. Another way of assuring that is to take my health seriously. I am a Vegan and have been for 1 ½.
A Vegan is a person who does not consume any animal products. Some people confuse Vegan and Vegetarian, as some vegetarians can eliminate a portion of meat and dairy while some can just eliminate dairy, but Veganism you eliminate it all.
Since being vegan the feeling that I feel is indescribable as to the many changes my body has experienced since my transition.
My doctor was astonished with my numbers. My cholesterol was well within range and I was no longer borderline obese. My skin had such a glow and I never looked back. I now have my 8 year old daughter which is also vegan who loves it and doesn’t miss a thing.
I am looking forward to sharing ideas, recipes and helpful tips to take care of your temple. You only get one ladies! 1 Corithians 6:19-20.
"Today is the day of salvation."
There is sooo much life in that proclaim!
To know there is a way and resource for change deserves a HalleluYAH!
The change: Heir to the covenant—a white robe and eternal life in the kingdom with the Father!
Wow! You should of had to catch your breath and clutch your pearls after eating that.
Thank you for your mercy Father!
Many feel they need a change but don’t understand the requirements to obtain change. To change in a sense is to "redirect" but can you do that without changing the rules? That’s key.
We have to redirect without changing any commandments and statutes of Yahweh. So when we change it needs to be for the better while abiding by the best. YAH IS BEST!! I really want to address the ladies... Ladies we all desire change but what are we doing to make change? When we "redirect" is it to please Yahweh or ourselves? A lot of women become lost in the world because they don’t and won’t make time to read the word—His word about His life-- HalleluYAH.
It’s women all over the globe that are single mothers struggling, very little means to provide, with no idea where the next meal is going to come from. The instructions on how to get through is in the book because its already been done.
Remember Hagar and Ishmael: how Sarah had Abraham send Hagar away & he sent her away into the wilderness with bread & a bottle of water (Genesis 21:14-17)? Because Yahweh IS love and his word is truth & never void. He taught her his covenant and was with the child through his entire life. Somebody say go heeeaaad Yahweh!
If we obey his commands and abide by his covenant then know that HE IS WITH US! See, if you didn’t have to regroup after eating that....then you’ve missed it! Ok, ladies what about the woman that was to be stoned in John 8? Because of the word of Yahweh she was not stoned. What did Yahshua say to her? "Go and sin no more" because of Yahweh’s covenant she was allowed a chance not to die in her sins—a chance to "redirect". HalleluYAH!
We are promised eternal life in the kingdom as long as we walk with him!
Thank you Father for your mercy. I know a lot of you feel your struggle is real and that its going to take more than just reading the Bible to create a resolution—and you’re right! We must study and eat these words until they become a part of our DNA & we walk it like we talk it. Just reading it is not enough.
You think you got it bad because you’re broke, homeless, no car, single, been abused or ill? What about Mary--The woman that pushed the Savior of the world from her womb? She was a virgin living in a small community where everyone knew everyone's business, a community that believed getting pregnant before being married was an abomination that deserves fatal conviction. Can you imagine the ridicule she endured from man?
These pathetic creatures that had no idea she was favored by Yahweh. Can you image what her days were like? How about when it was time to have the baby? She had no meds and was riding on a mule for hours then had to give birth in a wet funky manger. Because of his covenant Mary was kept.
So ladies, learn of your Father and his covenant. Lean on him; love him and teach of him. Learn to please him and let your "redirect" help change others.
How do you learn? By attending Yahshua University
Spread love. Stay blessed.
Having Peace Within
To have peace within is something everyone should be able to establish. To live in a world filled with so much evil, hatred and self-centeredness is rough. Too many people lack genuine love.
While living a set-apart life you try to find peacefulness within-- through fasting, praying, reading the word of Yahweh or listening to spiritual music. To make a long story short we as sisters should try to get to that place of peace the best way we can. At times, trying to live in peace and in the true knowledge of self has been a battle.
There were times I had no peace and I was in and out and going to and fro ---contaminating myself with the
different doctrines of Men. I knew better but I was like a hopeless sheep excited about finding who I was and to whom I was connected.
As written, Yahweh Elohim Yahshua has made me a target among the wolves in sheep clothing (Hebrew camps). So many of these teachers like to change scriptures or use truth to manipulate women and some have the women idolize them instead of The Creator. Seeing this type of abuse have caused the tears to roll down my face in the late night hours.
I would pray for true knowledge of who I was as a Hebrew sister while seeking truth of who it is I am to worship. I wanted to know the true ways of righteousness and how to incorporate it into my life.
I felt like this was one big pool of fornicators. Yes, Sisters of Yah, it was a hot mess that I saw. I would drop to my knees and pray with tears that Yahweh would not forsake me and help me to walk in this set apart life. And guess what, my sisters? Yahweh showed up and showed out as He led me to Yahshua University... (somebody better give him praise) HalleluYAH!
I Found peace, true knowledge of self and a loving Yah family and the true ways of how to walk it like I talk it. Most of all I don't know what I would do without my sisters and the Yahshua University family. I am so grateful to be a part of this monumental movement, so much peace and love I found in the sisterhood. This is my safe haven where sisters lift each other up and love one another.
I just want to say, "Sisters, just keep your faith; repent and do not repeat. Pray and as long as you look toward Yahweh Elohim Yahshua, He will guide your steps and will make it seem as if you are gliding on skates."
Shalom, Yah-U Sisterhood.
If someone said to you, "I need you to write a letter to your Creator," what would you write?
I thought about this question for a while and I decided to get out my laptop and get to writing my letter. I pray that this work may bring some insight and comfort to your life. Here goes...
Dear Father Yahweh,
I have not always been the loving daughter I should have been and have not always listened to your voice when I needed to. I have not always kept your commandments as taught but I do remember the lessons. It is just as it is written, "Train up a child in the way they should go and when he or she is old they will not depart from it" -- Proverbs 22:6
I knew right from wrong and I knew what the word said which were written by your human vessels. Although I may have thought you were far from me, you where there the whole time because you said, "I will never leave you, nor forsake you" Hebrew 13:5.
There were times I feared you not and wanted to do it my way. I finally looked at the woman in the mirror and realized-- I am your creation.
For it is written in Psalms 100:3 "Know ye that Yahweh is our Elohim; it is He that has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture."
Please forgive me of my past transgressions and my stubborn heart. I want to be a daughter of Yah and I want to serve You, my Creator, and live according to your purpose for my life. I just want to thank You for loving me, Father Yahweh
I believe that you, O Yahweh are love; and anyone that dwells in love also dwells in You and You in them. I now know that You dwell within me.
Father Yahweh, I believe and love you with all my heart, mind and soul and with all my strength, just as your word instructs us in Mark 12:30. I will also work to show my sisters the way to You, their true Father, who loves them -- Yahweh our Elohim.
Starting now, I will stand up and be the daughter of my heavenly Father [Yahweh], the wife and help-meet to my husband, mother to my beautiful sons I have been blessed with, and will help teach them to be Yahweh fearing men.
I write this letter with the renewing of my mind and will not conform to this world that I may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of Yours --my Father--- Yahweh Elohim of The Real Israel. Love, your daughter,

While we have heard many explanations about the transgression in the Garden of Eden and in most explanations the unrighteous woman, Eve, is blamed for the downfall of her husband, Adam!
However, scripture does not validate these explanations because scripture is not just telling one story. All scripture is telling us His-story or explaining the purpose of Yahweh-Elohim and his son, Yahshua the Messiah, by the use of allegories. So let us examine exactly what Yahshua the Messiah said about the scriptures in John 5:39 “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.”
Yahshua also had this to say about the scriptures in Luke 24:44,
"This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms."
Therefore, it is imperative before we begin any form of Bible Study that we understand who, what, when and where the scriptures are talking about. We can see that the Old Testament which many Christians consider to be irrelevant, Yahshua clearly told us is of the utmost of importance because it is testifying of him!
So let’s now go to the book of Genesis to see what the transgression in the Garden of Eden is telling us about Yahshua the Messiah our savior.
Now we have Yahweh-Elohim creating the first man, Adam, on the sixth day of Moses’ vision atop Mt. Sinai. This explanation will be given in an upcoming article so be sure to continue to visit this website for that. The reason it is called the “First Book of Moses Called Genesis” is Moses is accredited for writing it.
As the Apostle Paul tells us in I Corinthians 15:7
“The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Yahshua from heaven.”
So the second Adam is Yahshua from heaven!
When Adam is created he is put in a deep sleep and when he resurrects Yahweh-Elohim presents him his bride. Please note that the Adam goes into a death (sleep is symbolical of death), buried over in the spirit and then he resurrects and is presented with his bride—or, a death, burial and resurrection!
Also note, that in Genesis 5:2 it states, “Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.”
Just as in any marriage, the woman takes on the sir name of her husband. So when the woman transgresses the commandment and partakes of the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil – her name is Adam! Also, like any modern-day marriage covenant, the husband becomes responsible for any decisions the wife makes; no matter how foolish.
It is stated in I Timothy 2:14, “And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.”
Adam had already been commanded by Yahweh-Elohim in Genesis 2:16-17, “And the Yahweh-Elohim commanded the man, saying, ‘Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.’”
So Adam was given the commandment along with Eve who was still inside Adam as she had not been brought forth from the man when the commandment was given. This would mean that Adam and Eve were fully aware of the commandment and the consequences. However, Adam was not deceived and would now have to make a choice for his bride!
Proving that Yahweh is declaring the end (Revelation) from the beginning (Genesis): Adam, being a type of Yahshua the Messiah, willingly offered up his life for his bride, Eve; in like manner, Yahshua the Messiah will take on sinful flesh, being without sin, to die for sinners.
The great mystery being that in the end Yahshua the Messiah, like the first Adam, willingly offered up his life for the Church, which is his Bride! (Ephesians 5:23-32)

Shalom, to the Yah-U Sisterhood. This is a community of women who are seeking the only true Creator and Yahshua The True Messiah, whom He sent (John 17:3) according to the Revelation that is at work in this present day (Acts 13:41).
This page is for the Yahshua Sisterhood to connect with other women around the world and to speak out on those issues that impact women of The Faith and women in general. This platform is also to serve as a "safe haven" from the growing number of "religious groups" that mis-use the scriptures to silence women and to take advantage of The Sisters of Yahshua.
Two Truths That Must Be Proclaimed
1: Women Are To Teach The Word of Yahweh
Too many times I have seen "religious" men limit the role of women in ministry even though the Creator, Yahweh, Himself throughout the scriptures called on women to teach, to lead and to guide men, women and children. The Father did not forbid a woman from teaching His Word to others.
Where is it written that "Women are NOT to teach the word of truth and righteousness?"
2: Women of Yah Are Not To Be Placed In Harems
The second way "religious" men mis-use the scriptures to target women is by teaching women to accept being part of a harem of multiple wives to one husband. One word on that-- "unacceptable." Sisters seeking the truth are now being lured into harems by men who use scriptures to seduce them into believing that this is the will of Yahweh, though it is not.
At Yahshua University.com... today is a new day and the true way.
