Make sure to go to bottom of this page and watch teaching videos about the gender of the RUACH ha KODESH/HOLY SPIRIT.

Warning, this might be the most controversial prophecy given to me thus far. Some of it contains personal revelations to me and that is why my name is mentioned by the RUACH ha KODESH. However, I do not want to censor this Heavenly message. There is a part 2 to this word but this should be enough to digest for now YAHUVEH says. When you read part 2 you will understand why it had to wait.

Elisabeth Praying: All of us want to know you MOMMA RUACH. Man calls you a ‘He’ for they would never give credit to you in the past. Holy, Holy, Holy, Holy…we just call upon you MOMMA RUACH ha KODESH. Won’t you please reveal yourself to me? Won’t you reveal yourself to us?
Flying Dove
You can give a vision to my husband just as well as you can give it to me. You can anoint him to know these things just as well as you can me. Kathy has beautiful writings that I know that you are writing through her in a whole different tone of voice. You’re so gentle. You’re everything a woman should be. As a woman my desire is to be more like you. You’re the definition of the word feminine. Even ABBA YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA warn, "Don’t hurt you."

Word from the RUACH ha KODESH:

Wait, wait, wait, now is not yet the time for ME to reveal in the way that you have asked ME to reveal. But I shall do it and you shall teach it and the lies shall be combated! It is I that gives the desire to say this prayer. It is I that gives the desire to know who I am. For it is I who you did lay your head upon the shoulder in Heaven (Banquet Table Dream). I gave you a glimpse to see how much those who love YAHUSHUA are loved by ME. I am the MOTHER of CREATION. Females were made in MY image. I am ageless. I am CO-CREATOR. The family is a copy of what is in Heaven. Where do you think it came from? The Mother, the Father and the children.

Cross and Crown

This doesn’t mean in Heaven birth is as it is here on earth. It was never meant to be so. It was because of Eve’s sin and Adam’s sin it became a painful process. There is no discord in Heaven. There is no pain in Heaven. There is only love and peace and joy. There is only happiness." (Elisabeth says: What else MOMMA, what else do you want to tell me?)

Elisabeth, you who have craved for the love of a mother since you were conceived, even in your mothers womb you cried out to ME. This is why I fill you now in the way that I do with such a unique anointing between you two. So you will never feel that void again. Niko, you were starved for attention. Your earthly mother did the best she could with the spirit that she was working with. But I too fill you with MY love.

Elisabeth, when you rock and you pray, it is ME that rocks you. Keep striving to know who I am. I will reveal more to you. I will bring you remembrance of what it was like in Heaven when you beheld MY Face. For I sit next to your Heavenly Father. YAHUVEH is MY HUSBAND. YAHUSHUA is MY Son. There is not only one throne, there are three thrones in Heaven and WE rule in unison. How do you think your prayers reach your ABBA YAHUVEH’s ears? It is I that send them to HIM for I am in the Believers, those who love MY Son, YAHUSHUA. It is I, the anointed WIND that blows them to HIM (YAHUVEH) as I blow a kiss to Heaven. I speak in symbolism so you can understand. When you lift up prayer, it’s like blowing kisses to your ABBA YAHUVEH. When you pray in MY Son’s Name, it takes all three of us for you to be heard and answered. This is just the beginning of the teaching.

It’s only for those who I tell you to tell, of course, all of this family, you will share this with. But I will move you with caution unlike any other Word spoken. For these are secrets satan never wanted revealed and he will fight you with a fight like you have never encountered before. That’s why it’s not yet time to give the Word to the world.

I will speak to you in things no man or woman has heard. Why do you think lucifer came and tempted Eve first? It was to mock ME for Eve was made in MY image as Adam was made in YAHUVEH’s image as Abel was made in YAHUSHUA’s image, righteous, the definition of love. So it’s by satan’s hand Cain slew Abel. Just as it was by the spirit of Cain’s hand, again satan used to crucify MY Son YAHUSHUA, although it was part of all of our plan. For those of you whose names are written in the Lambs' Book of Life to Heaven you could return, there was no other way. So a New Blood Covenant was birthed that day to replace the Old Blood Covenant that could not stand.
You want to know one of the things that grieves ME. You want to know one of the things that offends ME? Elisabeth, when you feel MY anger and MY rage, they speak of the Father’s rage, of ABBA YAHUVEH’s rage, you do not have a clue of the rage of the MOTHER of CREATION! You just have a fraction of MY rage! When you feel that volcano ready to blow inside of your head and it’s in the name of righteousness, you just have a fraction of MY rage!

When you read in the Word that’s been translated and they dare to call MY Son YAHUSHUA, the son of man. He was never the son of a man. HE’s the Son of YAHUVEH! The Son of YAH! When you see this in the translation, for how long now I have caused you to grieve and you have never felt peace in this and yet you explain all the translations do this. It was not by MY hand! This is by satan’s plan. Although HE was born in a human frame, although HE suffered on the cross the pain HE was never, never, never the son of (a) man! HE’s the Son of YAH and HIS Name, even to the world proclaimed. Why do you think satan in the translation, tried to regulate HIM and give HIM the name of a man. I’ve had to allow this and at this time before the Great Tribulation the name of Jesus will stand.

(Explanation regarding the last paragraph:
Elisabeth has been attacked severely regarding the last paragraph by those who call themselves christian, but we know better than that. After much prayer and guidance it is very clear what the RUACH ha KODESH is saying. She is saying it grieves, offends and angers her that so many different Bibles are using the inaccurate translation of 'the Son of Man' to describe YAHUSHUA. Originally in Hebrew the scriptures said 'Ben Adam' and not 'the Son of Man'. After prayer and studying this subject it has become clear that 'Ben Adam' literally in English means 'human being'. In Aramaic 'Ben Adam' is translated into 'Son of Adam' and 'Son of Humanity' because Adam is the Father of humanity and therefore the 'Son of Adam' is translated into the 'Son of Humanity'. So then when the Aramaic was translated into Greek it was translated from 'Son of Humanity' into 'Son of Man'.

We can promise you this, YAHUSHUA NEVER used 'the Son of Man' to describe HIMSELF.

'Son of Man' is inaccurate and has caused much confusion and needless debate and this is exactly what satan wanted and knew would happen. Many believe because so many Bibles use 'the Son of Man' to describe YAHUSHUA that it means HE is literally the son of A man. As in Joseph is the literal biological father of YAHUSHUA. They believe YAHUSHUA was a mere man and not the Son of YAHUVEH. Niko's biological father believed this, he believed YAHUSHUA was just a good man with alot of wisdom, he didn't believe YAHUSHUA was God or the Son of YAHUVEH. This is what the RUACH ha KODESH is clarifying, YAHUSHUA is NOT the son of A man (Joseph), but YAHUSHUA is a human being (Ben Adam) born of a virgin woman and the Son of YAHUVEH.

The 'Restoration Scriptures True Name Edition Bible' published by Your Arms To Yisrael uses the original Hebrew of 'Ben Adam' and not 'the Son of Man'.

The 'Aramaic New Covenant Bible' published by exegeses Bibles uses the translation of 'the Son of Humanity'.

'The Scriptures Bible' published by the Institute For Scripture Research uses the translation 'the Son of Adam'.

As we all know most other Bibles use the translation 'the Son of man'. The above Bibles are mentioned because we have these Bibles and read them for ourselves.

So if these so-called christians were truly followers of YAHUSHUA and not Pharisees, they would have prayed for wisdom and knowledge as to what the RUACH ha KODESH meant in this Prophecy instead of attacking Elisabeth and calling her a false prophet and accusing us that we are saying the King James Version (KJV) Bible is from satan. This is foolishness, we never said such a thing, but what the RUACH ha KODESH is saying is that satan definately had a part in the translations of many of the Bibles that use the translation of 'the Son of Man' as well as many other inaccurate mis-translations that have been used in these Bibles. Why do you think there is so much confusion and so many different inaccurate translations of the Bible? This is clearly NOT of YAHUVEH.

For those who are truly seeking the truth we pray this has helped you understand the truth as it has helped us understand.)

Oh, but in the Great Tribulation those who are saved now and have been living Holy before ME, MY spirit is within them, just as you were saved in the Name of Jesus, you’d still be calling upon HIM in that Name. And do not misunderstand ME, there is power, Heavenly power to back up that Name because of the mercy of your ABBA YAHUVEH. But in the Great Tribulation so many shall die, even though they are saved now, so many will wonder why their prayers are not answered. It is not because WE do not love them. And I do not speak of those who will go to the Sunday churches and will take the MARK, I speak to those who will call out in the Name of Jesus, who know that HE was the one that was crucified and rose again from the dead and on the 3rd day did arise.

Stairway to Heaven
Wait for them in Heaven. But they must understand while now there is power in that Name, there will be no power then in that Name. That doesn’t mean for those who are still walking Holy before ME they will not return to Heaven, but it means I cannot answer them as I said it is MY anointing, like blowing a kiss to ABBA YAHUVEH that their prayers are answered but on that day I cannot back up the words they say for there will be another on the face of this earth who will say, "I am Jesus."

And although I know what Jesus they speak and call to, because that name will be as a curse, their prayers will not reach Heaven and they will wonder why. This is why you are warning them now. This is the importance of that Hebrew Name. You see satan does not want to use the Name YAH. Oh, I have many enemies out there who now dare to operate their ministries and use the Name YAH to deceive the wolves and the lambs. But the son of satan does not want to use the Name YAH, he wants to use the name that the world became familiar with and that was the name of J-E-S-U-S.

So although those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, during the Great Tribulation, they will return to Heaven, it will mean they have to give their life but they will never, ever enter into a Sunday church or their name will be blotted out. And there will be no salvations at that time in the name of J-E-S-U-S; it will only be in YAHUSHUA. Some will say YAHSHUA. But the Name YAH will not be left out.

For the anointed 144,000 will not be teaching the name of J-E-S-U-S. This is now. That will be then. I’ve given you this message to warn again. That’s just like now, that doesn’t mean all those who attend the Sunday churches do not belong to ME, are not filled with MY Spirit, but it does mean in the Great Tribulation it will not be allowed for this is where they sell out to the Beast. Do you understand? Souls are saved now in the Name of J-E-S-U-S. I anoint in the Name of J-E-S-U-S. I heal in the Name of J-E-S-U-S. I deliver in the Name of J-E-S-U-S. But that will not be then.

Warn them. How could I answer them? How could MY Son YAHUSHUA answer them? When they scream out, "Jesus, help me," and the son of satan is there, and says, "Here I am." They will say, "Jesus save me, forgive me of my sins!" And the son of satan will say, "Here I am." Can you not see the danger? Can you not understand? You do not know the grief that I will feel when those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, who know better than to go to the Sunday churches will run and hide, and will have to give their lives because they will be crying out and they will refuse to say the Name of YAHUSHUA.

They will hold onto what they were taught and they will say the Name of Jesus and their prayers will not reach Heaven for I will not blow them like a kiss because the son of satan will cry out, "Here I am." This does not mean their name is blotted out. It merely means I cannot save their life. I cannot hide them. I cannot feed them. I cannot deliver them.

This is why I raise up ministries such as this that teach the Name of YAHSHUA, that teach the Name of YAHUSHUA. It doesn’t matter. So many refuse to speak the name the way I’ve given you but the Name YAH cannot be left out for even HIS Name means "YAH Saves."

I gave you the dream when the flying saucers come truly they are satan’s army but they have a right to those who will cry out in the wrong name because he (son of satan) will claim "Here I am."

So beware, now it has already started. There is one who has risen up. He has a world wide following and he calls himself Jesus Christ. But the key is he throws out all that is Holy. Beware of the one coming, for this one is just a mere man, but beware the one coming for it will be as Judas has returned once again and he is truly the son of satan, the son of lucifer.

Warn them now. There is a time and there is a season. You will know when to let this Word go. But Elisabeth, never again will you have to crave the love of a mother for I have showed you I have filled that void.

Enlightening some, Offending most, Apostle Elisabeth (Elisheva) Elijah

(Comments on the audio tape)

Niko: Elisabeth was just praying in the spirit, asking about the RUACH ha KODESH, MOMMA RUACH and wanted to know her and MOMMA RUACH spoke. Those were the words MOMMA spoke. So there you go Adam. You wanted a confirmation, you got it buddy. It looks like us men are confounded once again by these women!!!

Elisabeth: I’ve just got to say the revelation she gave me, when men kept saying in the bible when referring to the RUACH ha KODESH, "he, he, he," it’s only one letter off because men were always saying, "We were made in God’s image," and could gloat over the woman saying, "You’re not made in HIS image, I am." So MOMMA RUACH has just confirmed the fact women, females, Eve, were created in HER image and SHE sits on the other side of YAHUVEH and SHE is CO-CREATOR! So we are made in truly GODDESS RUACH ha KODESH, our MOMMA’s image. Take that men of the world!


I have never believed in UFOs or evil aliens from other planets until I had a dream sometime in March 2005, Since then I have had revelations of what this is and worse of all it is real.

The UFO's Are Coming, What Will You Do?

I saw myself in what appeared to be a City. I saw people running in terror from the UFO's, especially a huge cigar shaped UFO with 2 fins on one end of the UFO. Men and women were yelling, "JESUS HELP ME!" Then I saw this cigar shaped UFO shoot out a single beam of light that looked bluish/green in color. The bluish/green light would hit the people and it picked them up and pulled them into the space craft. The people were screaming, "Jesus help me!" Yet they were still taken by that beam of light into the belly of the cigar shaped UFO. The people could not out run the UFO.

Then the cigar shaped UFO hovered over me and I tried to out run it, but I couldn't. I saw the beam of light come towards me in the air and I yelled as it was directly over me, "YAHUSHUA prove to me you hear my prayer, help me!" The beam of light stopped in mid air and went to the nearest person to me who was yelling "JESUS" and they were taken by that beam of light, kicking and screaming in horror right into the belly of the cigar shaped UFO.

End of dream

This ministry warns why it is urgent for people to know the Hebrew Name for our Messiah YAHUSHUA or YAHSHUA. The name of JESUS CHRIST has saving, anointing, healing, delivering, resurrection power now, but WILL NOT in the Great Tribulation. I don't believe I will be in the Great Tribulation in this mortal body, I was there to warn you now. However in the dream it is a warning that the anti-christ who is the son of satan, will be using the name of JESUS CHRIST because Christians all over the world, in multitudes of languages, use the beloved name of JESUS CHRIST. The most famous TV evangelists are setting the people up for the blue beam rapture, which is a counterfeit rapture.

Heavenly FATHER and MOTHER?

(Quotations from New KJV.)

Proverbs 1: 8-9…MY Son, hear the instruction of your Father, and do not forsake the law of your MOTHER for they will be graceful ornaments on your head, a chain about your neck.

Ecclesiasticus: The Wisdom of the Son of Sirach

Ecclesiasticus: The Wisdom of the Son of Sirach, is a book included in the early Hebrew and Greek Bibles. It is believed to have been written in the 2nd century B.C. The early Greek church also called it, “The All-Virtuous Wisdom.”

Ecclesiasticus is a Latin word meaning, “churchly,” and would describe any book that was read in church or received ecclesiastical or church sanction. Ben Sira, or the son of Sirach, was a scholar, and a scribe thoroughly versed in the Jewish Law, and especially in the “Books of Wisdom.”

Chapter 1

1. The Law, the Prophets,and the other writers succeeding them have passed on to us great lessons, in consequence of which Israel must be commended for learning and WISDOM…
4. WISDOM was created before everything, prudent understanding subsists from remotest ages...
6. For whom has the root of WISDOM ever been uncovered? HER resourceful ways, who knows them?...
8. ONE only is wise, terrible indeed,
9. seated on HIS Throne, the LORD. It was HE who created, inspected and weighed HER up, and then poured HER out on all HIS works…..
14. The basis of WISDOM is to fear the LORD; SHE was created with the faithful in their mothers' womb;
15. SHE has made a home in the human race, an age -- old foundation, and to their descendants will SHE faithfully cling.
16.The fullness of WISDOM is to fear the LORD; SHE intoxicates them with HER fruits;
17. SHE fills their entire house with treasures and their storerooms with HER produce.
18. The crown of WISDOM is to fear the LORD: SHE makes peace and health flourish.
19. The LORD has seen and assessed HER, HE has showered down knowledge and intelligence, HE has exalted the renown of those who possess HER.
20. The root of WISDOM is to fear the LORD, and HER branches are long life.

Chapter 4

1. Wisdom brings up HER own children and cares for those who seek HER.
2. Whoever loves HER loves life, those who seek HER early will be filled with joy.
3. Whoever possesses HER will inherit honour, and wherever he walks the LORD will bless him.
4. Those who serve HER minister to the HOLY ONE, and the LORD loves those who love HER.
5. Whoever obeys HER rules the nations, whoever pays attention to HER dwells secure.
6. If he trusts himself to HER he will inherit HER, and his descendants will remain in possession of HER;
7. for though SHE takes him at first through winding ways, bringing fear and faintness on him, trying him out with HER discipline till SHE can trust him, and testing him with HER ordeals,
8. SHE then comes back to him on the straight road, makes him happy and reveals HER secrets to him.
9. If he goes astray, however, SHE abandons him and leaves him to his own destruction.
Chapter 24

1. WISDOM speaks HER own praises, in the midst of HER people SHE glories in HERSELF.
2. SHE opens HER mouth in the assembly of the MOST HIGH, SHE glories in HERSELF in the presence of the MIGHTY ONE:
3. 'I came forth from the mouth of the MOST HIGH, and I covered the earth like mist.
4. I had MY tent in the heights, and MY Throne was a pillar of cloud.
5. Alone, I have made the circuit of the Heavens and walked through the depths of the abyss.
6. Over the waves of the sea and over the whole earth, and over every people and nation I have held sway.
7. Among all these I searched for rest, and looked to see in whose territory I might pitch camp.
8. Then the CREATOR OF ALL things instructed ME and HE who created ME fixed a place for MY tent. HE said, "Pitch your tent in Jacob, make Israel your inheritance."
9. From eternity, in the beginning, HE created ME, and for eternity I shall remain.
10. In the Holy tent I ministered before HIM and thus became established in Zion .
11. In the Beloved City HE has given ME rest, and in Jerusalem I wield MY Authority.
12. I have taken root in a privileged people, in the LORD’S property, in HIS inheritance.
13. I have grown tall as a cedar on Lebanon , as a cypress on Mount Hermon ;
14. I have grown tall as a palm in En-Gedi, as the rose bushes of Jericho ; as a fine olive in the plain, as a plane tree, I have grown tall.
15. Like cinnamon and acanthus, I have yielded a perfume, like choice myrrh, have breathed out a scent, like galbanum, onycha, labdanum, like the smoke of incense in the tent.
16. I have spread MY branches like a terebinth, and MY branches are glorious and graceful.
17. I am like a vine putting out graceful shoots, MY blossoms bear the fruit of glory and wealth.
18/19. Approach ME, you who desire ME, and take your fill of MY fruits,
20. for memories of ME are sweeter than honey, inheriting ME is sweeter than the honeycomb.
21. They who eat ME will hunger for more, they who drink ME will thirst for more.
22. No one who obeys ME will ever have to blush, no one who acts as I dictate will ever sin.
23. All this is no other than the Book of the Covenant of the MOST HIGH GOD, the Law that 24/25. Moses enjoined on us, an inheritance for the communities of Jacob.
26. This is what makes WISDOM brim over like the Pishon, like the Tigris in the season of fruit, what makes INTELLIGENCE overflow like the Euphrates, like the Jordan at harvest time;
27. and makes DISCIPLINE flow like the Nile , like the Gihon when the grapes are harvested.
28. The first man did not finish discovering about HER, nor has the most recent tracked HER down;
29. for her thoughts are wider than the sea, and her designs more profound than the abyss.
30. And I, like a conduit from a river, like a watercourse running into a garden,
31. I said, 'I am going to water MY orchard, I intend to irrigate MY flower beds.' And see, MY conduit has grown into a river, and MY river has grown into a sea.
32. Making DISCIPLINE shine forth from daybreak, I shall send its light far and wide.
33. I shall pour out Teaching like Prophecy, as a legacy to all future generations.
34. And note, I have been working not merely for MYSELF, but for all who are seeking WISDOM.

Chapter 51

13. When I was still a youth, before I went travelling, in my prayers I asked outright for WISDOM.
14. Outside the sanctuary I would pray for HER, and to the last I shall continue to seek HER.
15. From HER blossoming to the ripening of HER grape my heart has taken its delight in HER. My foot has pursued a straight path, I have sought HER ever since my youth.
16. By bowing my ear a little, I have received HER, and have found much instruction.
17. Thanks to HER I have advanced; glory be to HIM who has given me WISDOM!
18. For I was determined to put HER into practice, have earnestly pursued the good, and shall not be put to shame.
19. My soul has fought to possess HER, I have been scrupulous in keeping the Law; I have stretched out my hands to Heaven and bewailed how little I knew of HER;
20.I have directed my soul towards HER, and in purity I have found HER; having my heart fixed on HER from the outset, I shall never be deserted;
21. my very core having yearned to discover HER, I have now acquired a good possession.
22. In reward the LORD has given me a tongue with which I shall sing HIS praises.
23. Come close to me, you ignorant, take your place in my school.
24. Why complain about lacking these things when your souls are so thirsty for them?
25. I have opened my mouth, I have said: 'Buy HER without money,
26. put your necks under HER yoke, let your souls receive instruction, SHE is near, within your reach.'
27. See for yourselves: how slight my efforts have been to win so much peace.
28. Buy instruction with a large sum of silver, thanks to HER you will gain much gold.
29. May your souls rejoice in the mercy of the LORD, may you never be ashamed of praising HIM.
30. Do your work before the appointed time and at the appointed time HE will give you your reward.
