Dear Mishpochah (family):
What does it mean to obey the voice of YHVH?
OBEYING HIS VOICE = FOLLOWING TORAH

However in the Torah, the Messiah is called the "angel" (malak

the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.

for he will not pardon your transgressions: for MY NAME is IN HIM.
The NAME of YHVH is IN this "malak / messenger".
KJV John I and my Father are one.
OBEYING MY VOICE = KEEPING TORAH = FOLLOWING THE COMMANDMENTS

thee this day.

thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;

brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace,
saying, OBEY MY VOICE, and do them, according to all which I command
you: so shall ye be my people, and I will be your God:
Brought them forth out of the land of Egypt (Mount Sinai) = Obey My Voice
KJV Jeremiah 11:7 For I EARNESTLY PROTESTED unto your fathers in the
day that I brought them up out of the land of Egypt, even unto this
day, rising early and protesting, saying, OBEY MY VOICE.
YHVH PLEADED = OBEY MY VOICE = FOLLOW TORAH
NOT OBEYING MY VOICE = NOT FOLLOWING TORAH
KJV Deuteronomy 28:62 And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye
were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest NOT
OBEY the VOICE of the LORD thy God.
KJV Daniel 9:11 Yea, all Israel have TRANSGRESSED THY TORAH, even by
departing, that they might NOT OBEY THY VOICE; therefore the curse is
