Izzy here. Vesna, a member of the Holy Language tribe, recently tipped me off to this Hebrew verb tables website. It also has a feature that will construct a verb for you in any form your heart may desire. See for yourself here!
Thanks Vesna. And if you have any resources you'd like to tell the Holy Language tribe about, I'd be happy to pass them on for you too. Just hit reply and let me know.
Susan is following Yeshua in a Hebrew way! Here's her story.
In 2006, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder from Lyme disease. In 5 months I went from active to housebound and could no longer work. During this severe stage of my illness, I found in my supply of books a book by a Christian doctor titled "The Bible Cure for Arthritis.” Inside this book, he quoted two verses of scripture that changed my life.
The first one was Exodus 15:26- "saying, ‘If you will diligently listen to the voice of the Lord your God, and do that which is right in His eyes, and give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you that I put on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, your healer."
The second was James 5:14 "Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord."
I realized I could not even recite the Ten Commandments, much less know if I was obeying them. So I set out to memorize and learn to obey fully Yahweh's Ten Commandments (because I thought that was all there was at this time in history). I also asked my Pastor if he would anoint me (not done in our church) and he agreed to do so. In 2008, I enrolled in a 9 month Bible study which just happened to be studying Moses that year. Coincidence? I don't think so. Through that study, I realized how much Yahweh is in the details of our lives; especially our worship of Him.
Following this path to obedience so I too could be healed, I came to the 7th day Sabbath. I turned. Eleven months later, just before Passover 2011, I realized that when I received Yeshua as my Savior, I died to being a gentile and through Yeshua, I grafted into the commonwealth of Israel. I realize today that there are some who do not see it this way, and I am not wanting to raise a debate about it at all. Whatever I am, believing I was an Israelite gave birth to a desire in me to learn how to obey all of Torah I possibly could. It also gave me a desire to understand the Bible through Hebraic eyes and to learn the Holy Language of Yahweh.
By 2013, I was no longer on any medications and once again living a full and active life working full-time, riding horses and enjoying my grandchildren. I know that Yahweh healed me exactly as He promises if we obey His Way.
I am loving learning His language and the ways of His People.

I'll leave you with this story. A friend recently told me "You are all about your so-called "Messianic" agenda Iz. It gets tiresome." This was my response to him, maybe it'll help you understand me better too.
"My agenda is to know Yeshua and make him known, especially to the Jewish people in accordance with Paul's rule that the gospel is "for the Jew first". If you'd like to categorize that as Messianic, I guess that's ok. I can understand why hearing the same things from someone may get tiresome, but look at it from the broader perspective of church history. Christ has been restoring to his church the things that were lost in the Dark Ages - things that today we take for granted like having the Bible in our own language, justification by faith, baptism by choice, the new birth experience, speaking in tongues, apostolic and prophetic ministry. We take all these things for granted now, but there was a time in the last 700 years when these were not accepted doctrines and practices. In order for these things to be restored, a movement of men and women had to rise up and hammer on that particular item until it overcame the popular misconceptions in the church and once again became accepted and normal. You know Romans 9-11, you know that the time is coming - or perhaps it is already here - when the Jewish people will once again see Yeshua for who he is and the face of Christianity will be changed forever. I've come to believe that most believers aren't ready for this. And so I hammer. Sincerely, I believe it's my life calling."
