Qohelet (Ecclesiastes) 12:13-14Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear ’Elohiym, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For ’Elohiym will bring every work into judgement, with every hidden thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

13 March 2020I suppose it is time again to update my condition. But first we would like to say that we are still completely overwhelmed with prayers and spiritual support. Having no adequate words we can only say thank you from the very depths of our hearts, for it is the prayers of the saints that have produced the current good news. I had my latest MRI a few days ago and both the Oncologist and the Neurosurgeon agreed that although the astrocytoma is still there (not for long) it appears to have been stopped, frozen in its tracks, grinded to a halt and going nowhere. (Actually they called it a "stable, non-enhancing mass".) Halleluyah to our mighty King and Healer! We still covet your prayers for a complete destruction of the astrocytoma, and we want the medical powers that be to clearly see Who did the healing and Who, just like the mouths that speak lies (Mizemor 63:11), stopped the work of the adversary. I have fallen in love with the body of Messiah. We love you.
We received a recent report that we were not interested in suggestions from the brethren and that we were only following the standard doctors. Nothing could be further from the truth. As a matter of fact, the treatments I have been on for the past 3 or 4 weeks were only as a result of recommendations from the brethren. The Oncologist and Neurosurgeon I have previously mentioned were only for diagnosis as they are the ones who have all the fun toys! Although chemo and radiation were never even a consideration for us, these two men did not recommend chemo or radiation either. Prayer and natural treatments are all I have been on. What the scriptures say has always been our Father's way of taking care of His children and it will always be His way.
23 February 2020 Well, my friends it is time for another update. I have been using a couple of alternative treatments since my diagnosis and I have not had a seizure since January 28th. Praise Yah! Although I am still struggling with a few side issues, overall I am feeling good but a bit fragile and a nap every afternoon sure helps. I still cannot actually get back in the saddle yet, but my Father is good and He is leading me slowly back to "Brad normal". 11 March is the 6 week follow-up with the neurosurgeon out in Provo. We are wonderfully overwhelmed by prayers and hearts of all of you and still cannot find words to express. I am trying to respond to each of you, but I am behind.
Another big note of thanks for all the wonderful advice and treatments we have received. We have noted all of them and I am currently using many of them. Obviously, I cannot use them all at the same time. As far as I know I am still in stage 2 and my Father has given us time to evaluate and use many of them. We are now spending most of our time focusing on getting my health back, so I am not strong enough yet to be able to address your questions and queries that are historically routine here at WildBranch. We still covet your prayers and, as I have stated to Carol a couple of times since the onset of these trials, this is a good time to let my God do a little showing off!
7 February 2020: I thought it might be appropriate to give all of our friends an update on my situation. Carol and I have spent the past week or two pouring over all the treatment suggestions and resources. We are so totally blown away by the response of people all over the world. I personally have no words but just tears of thanks to so many people. I am in the process of some of those treatments. I am feeling well and standing strong in the promises of my Creator and Healer. I know I have said this twice before over the years, but, I WILL be back in the saddle again. There are so many people who care. Carol and I have both seen the kind hearts and concerns of those of us who love Yeshua' and love the Torah.
As a side note, I wanted to mention something very personal and deeply concerning to me. On December 21st, 2019 I began an audio series addressing what I have always believed about the image of the beast in the book of Hitgalut (Revelation). I believe that it is the internet or the information highway. This is not a subject I would usually address. I began compiling the research on December 21st followed by my first seizure the very next day. When returning home from my first hospital stay I began the recording of the series followed by my next seizure the very next day. Since I began this teaching, our offices have been under consistent attack, including difficulties with the graphics and other demonic like issues I will not bore you with at this time. In the series I address the deep neural networks of the internet and how they work, as they are almost a duplication of how our brains work. I found that the very network I was exposing was consuming my own brain and hence the seizures followed by the diagnosis of an astrocytoma. By now, you must be thinking that either Brad has lost his mind or that perhaps I live just too close to Colorado! What happened to me was not just a physical thing. The adversary has done everything he can to keep this series from being completed. I believe that this is actually his plan for everyone. Our world is being consumed with evil information. I am fully aware that most of us are already in the helpless position of being tied to internet devices. Oh, there is so much more to be said. I am begging the body of Messiah to find another way for us to communicate and to keep these devices away from our faces and the lives of our children.
30 January 2020: Due to much speculation and concern since Hanukkah concerning my health, we now have some information to report. We pray this information will give adequate details for those of you in prayer for me. After a litany of tests it has been determined that I have stage 2 astrocytoma. This is a low grade, slow growing mass near the center of my brain. Kind of logical since I am a musician and piano player. We are now in the stage of investigating all options and treatments. For the time being I need to be stabilized with respect to anti-seizure medications, so travel for now is not possible. Meanwhile, we are wholly trusting in our great Physician. He will heal me through all our prayers and petitions. This is not a death sentence, but it is a dramatic change in our life experience and a new journey for us. We both love you all and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your concern and prayers. We will post updates as we know them. Brad
Hitgalut (Revelation) 15:14 & 15
"And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed."
We are told in Ephesiand 4 that we are the gifts given to the assemblies to equip the saints. As Prophets, Pastors, Evangelists, Apostles, and Teachers/Parents in this generation, have we been inadvertently equipping the first beast which comes out of the sea, instead of the saints? In this prophetic series, Brad expounds on why he believes that the Internet, as we know it, is the image of that first beast, the one that is prophesied that we make ourselves. Brad takes a close look at the prophecies of the Image of the Beast and the characteristics and history of the World Wide Web.

The Morals, Ethics, and Values of Yeshua‘
If Yeshua‘ were walking the streets of America today, what do you think He would have to say about the plunging morals that our youth are facing? Would Yeshua‘ approve of homosexuality and the current gender confusion plaguing our culture? Would He be for or against abortion, illegal immigration, climate change or premarital sex? What would He have to say about institutional racism and poverty? In this series, Brad tackles some of the uncomfortable issues confronting our western culture. Although there are many in the next generation who are well versed in the do's and don'ts of biblical feasts and dietary laws, our children are not immune to the ever-changing morals of daily life in America. Please join Brad in helping to teach the next generations what it means to take up their cross and follow Yeshua‘. Great for home schooling!
A Commentary On Every Occurrence of Torah in the NCS
The relationship between law and grace has been long debated since the words of the New Covenant Scriptures (NCS) were first penned. Virtually every discourse on this subject, from both sides, draws from a passage here or a passage there and becomes more of a Pauline theme than a serious comprehensive research of the subject from the beginning. Now there is one go to source that contains every occurrence of law, all of its derivatives, and a comprehensive commentary in one book. This is a must-have reference for your library.
In this more devotional teaching, Brad focuses on the first work of YHVH, which is always the heart. Using the natural creation as his usual backdrop, Brad shows how all living things work the same way, which is why the Word of God is living and powerful. All living things are interdependent and in order.
Brad's concern is for the next generation. Using the story of Aaron's sons, Brad illustrates how we have in many ways circumvented the brazen altar and have sent the next generation running directly into the Holy Place.

Thanks to Jay, our web designer, (and so much more!) we now have all of Brad's books available in the eformat. As international postal rates have sky rocketed and is above what the market can bear, we pray this will help all of our international body of believers access his books.
We have created a new category that carries all of Brad's available slide shows and .pdf's created from the PowerPoint presentations. You may find the link to these in two places: on the right hand sidebar and as a subcategory under the Teachings section at the top of the website.
Brad's List of Research Tools
Many of you have asked for the list of books Brad uses for his research. The following link takes you to that list: names, authors, ISBN numbers. Research Tools link These are great resources every home library should have. We also have DVDs available that will teach you how to use these reference books. You can get these DVDs in hard copy and mp3 format. Learning Research Tools 1 and Learning Research Tools 2.
