Atonement for Your Life


Shemoth/Exodus 30:11-16

Scroll Down

There is a plague in the midst of the people today. It is the plague of death.

Death is the last plague, and it is going throughout the earth devouring whomever is in its path. People are dying by the second in all places around the world.

Sickness and disease are running rampant. Heart disease and cancer are the leading causes of death. Natural disasters are becoming more and more intense, taking more and more lives. Freak accidents are happening left and right, and the evil one is attacking the minds and souls of people causing them to maliciously turn against one another and themselves.

We have to stop this evil and save lives!

​Death is a destruction of lives and possessions, and it has been around for quite some time. It is a plague of ancient times when people were punished by the Almighty for not obeying His rules.

Many are doing what they think is right in their own eyes and not what is right in the eyes of the Most High.

The Almighty YAHUAH is Sovereign over all things. Death is plaguing the earth, but YAH has made a remedy and a cure.

He is the Righteous Judge and a punisher of disobedience, but He is also merciful and compassionate. He wants all to be saved because He has no pleasure in destroying the wrong.

The Almighty is in control of everything, therefore, we must do what it takes to please Him. He wants the people to forsake their ways and follow Him.

Following Him means calling on His Name and obeying His voice, the commandments written in Scripture.

In one of these commandments, YAH tells us how to live and escape the plague:

Shemoth/Exodus 30:11-16  

(11) And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,

(12) “When you take the census of the children of Yisra’el, to register them, then each one shall give an atonement for his life to יהוה, when you register them, so that there is no plague among them when you register them.

(13) “Everyone among those who are registered is to give this: half a sheqel according to the sheqel of the set-apart place, twenty gĕrahs being a sheqel. The half-sheqel is the contribution to יהוה.

(14)  “Everyone passing over to be registered, from twenty years old and above, gives a contribution to יהוה.

(15)  “The rich does not give more and the poor does not give less than half a sheqel, when you give a contribution to יהוה, to make atonement for yourselves.

(16)  “And you shall take the silver for the atonement from the children of Yisra’el, and give it for the service of the Tent of Meeting. And it shall be to the children of Yisra’el for a remembrance before יהוה, to make atonement for yourselves.”


Atonement is forgiving and covering sin so that the punishment is erased.


YAH commanded all Yisrael to give a half-shekel to the Tent of Meeting (Tabernacle) in order to make atonement for themselves and to escape the plague.

Want to escape the plague of death?

Obey the Scriptures.

Believe in His Name and know that His Name YAHUAH is exalted.

Give the half-shekel and be registered in this Tent of Meeting, Family of Messiah.

The half-shekel, sometimes called the levy or the sanctuary/temple tax, was commanded for all Yisrael in order to escape the plague.

This commandment did not expire.


If we want to escape the plague of death that is sweeping across the land today, then we need to obey this command of YAHUAH. Everyone who pays the required half-shekel levy (Sanctuary tax) will be in obedience to the command of YAH which will please the Almighty.

The Registry of Family of Messiah

YAHUAH has accepted us and has told us that He will save all those who join with us. Therefore, we have set up the Registry to register all those who give the half-shekel levy.

Dibre haYamim Bet/2 Chronicles 24:8-10  

"So the sovereign commanded and they made a chest, and set it outside at the gate of the House of יהוה, and made it known in Yehudah and in Yerushalayim to bring to יהוה the levy that Mosheh the servant of Elohim had imposed on Yisra’l in the wilderness. And all the rulers and all the people rejoiced, and they brought in and put them into the chest to completion."


YAH has instructed us to be the set-apart place for His Name and to collect the levy from the peoples in order for their lives to be saved. 

When you give the half-shekel contribution, we will place your name on the Registry and pray for you before the Name of the Almighty. Our prayers here at Family of Messiah Assembly are heard.

When we pray for you, the Almighty YAHUAH will hear our prayer, and He will grant atonement for you.


You will then be free from the plagues in your midst and free from the plague of death.

By putting this command in force, a blessing will be upon all people, and the plague of wickedness and death will be broken. Thereby, a Kingdom of Kindness will be established and peace will be brought back to the world.

How Much is a Half-Shekel?

>> The Half-Shekel for the Set-Apart Place today is $5.00/year. <<


Dibre haYamim Alef/1 Chronicles 29:17  

“And I know, my Elohim, that You are trying the heart and desire uprightness. As for me, in the uprightness of my heart I have voluntarily given all these. And now with joy I have seen Your people, who are present here to give voluntarily to You."


Let us all do what it takes to save our lives and our possessions. The plague is destroying someone’s life every minute - every second - of the day.

It does not have to be you.

Escape the Plague of Death

The Truth is Your Escape Route

Get Your Name on the Registry 

If you believe in YAHUAH and pay your dues ($5.00/yr), your name is written in the earth and in heaven, and the devil is disarmed over your life.


YAH will cancel out the curses and plagues when you obey. The Almighty wants us to be obedient and faithful to Him so that He can bless us all. We must restore His goodness and kindness in the earth so that people will know that He is YAHUAH Elohim.

If you believe in YAHUAH, then through your obedience to His word, He will cover you.

Everyone who believes in YAH, the true Hebrew name of the Almighty, and amends their ways, should immediately get listed.

After receiving your contribution to YAH, we will place your name on the Registry making note that you have fulfilled your obligation to YAH. We will go before the Almighty in prayer for you so that death and destruction are disarmed from your life. He will rebuke the devourer from your life and remove the plague so that you live. As long as your name remains on the Registry, we will pray for your blessings daily in the set-apart place before YAH.

$5.00 a year is very little, but it is a contribution of obedience. Do it voluntarily.
