Va’era -And He Appeared
Welcome to Va’era –And He Appeared, this week’s Torah Portion.
Parashah 14: Va’era (I appeared) 6:2–9:35
2 God spoke to Moshe; he said to him, “I am Adonai. 3 I appeared to Avraham, Yitz’chak and Ya‘akov as El Shaddai, although I did not make myself known to them by my name, Yud-Heh-Vav-Heh [Adonai]. 4 Also with them I established my covenant to give them the land of Kena‘an, the land where they wandered about and lived as foreigners. 5 Moreover, I have heard the groaning of the people of Isra’el, whom the Egyptians are keeping in slavery; and I have remembered my covenant.
6 “Therefore, say to the people of Isra’el: ‘I am Adonai. I will free you from the forced labor of the Egyptians, rescue you from their oppression, and redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. 7 I will take you as my people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am Adonai your God, who freed you from the forced labor of the Egyptians. 8 I will bring you into the land which I swore to give to Avraham, Yitz’chak and Ya‘akov — I will give it to you as your inheritance. I am Adonai.’”
9 Moshe said this to the people of Isra’el. But they wouldn’t listen to him, because they were so discouraged, and their slavery was so cruel.
10 Adonai said to Moshe, 11 “Go in; and tell Pharaoh, king of Egypt, to let the people of Isra’el leave his land.” 12 Moshe said to Adonai, “Look, the people of Isra’el haven’t listened to me; so how will Pharaoh listen to me, poor speaker that I am?” 13 But Adonai spoke to Moshe and Aharon and gave them orders concerning both the people of Isra’el and Pharaoh, king of Egypt, to bring the people of Isra’el out of the land of Egypt.
(ii) 14 These were the heads of their families: the sons of Re’uven the firstborn of Isra’el were Hanokh, Pallu, Hetzron and Karmi. These were the families of Re’uven.
15 The sons of Shim‘on were Y’mu’el, Yamin, Ohad, Yakhin, Tzochar and Sha’ul the son of a Kena‘ani woman. These were the families of Shim‘on.
16 These are the names of the sons of Levi with their descendants: Gershon, K’hat and M’rari. Levi lived to be 137 years old. 17 The sons of Gershon were Livni and Shim‘i, with their families. 18 The sons of K’hat were ‘Amram, Yitz’har, Hevron and ‘Uzi’el. K’hat lived to be 133 years old. 19 The sons of M’rari were Machli and Mushi. These were the families of Levi with their descendants.
20 ‘Amram married Yokheved his father’s sister, and she bore him Aharon and Moshe. ‘Amram lived to be 137 years old. 21 The sons of Yitz’har were Korach, Nefeg and Zikhri. 22 The sons of ‘Uzi’el were Misha’el, Eltzafan and Sitri. 23 Aharon married Elisheva daughter of ‘Amminadav and sister of Nachshon, and she bore him Nadav, Avihu, El‘azar and Itamar. 24 The sons of Korach were Asir, Elkanah and Avi’asaf. These were the Korchi families. 25 El‘azar the son of Aharon married one of the daughters of Puti’el, and she bore him Pinchas. These were the heads of the families of Levi, family by family.
26 These are the Aharon and Moshe to whom Adonai said, “Bring the people of Isra’el out of the land of Egypt, division by division,” 27 and who told Pharaoh king of Egypt, to let the people of Isra’el leave Egypt. These are the same Moshe and Aharon.
28 On the day when Adonai spoke to Moshe in the land of Egypt, (iii) 29 he said, “I am Adonai. Tell Pharaoh, king of Egypt, everything I say to you.”
30 Moshe answered Adonai, “Look, I’m such a poor speaker that Pharaoh won’t listen to me.”
7 But Adonai said to Moshe, “I have put you in the place of God to Pharaoh, and Aharon your brother will be your prophet. 2 You are to say everything I order you, and Aharon your brother is to speak to Pharaoh and tell him to let the people of Isra’el leave his land. 3 But I will make him hardhearted. Even though I will increase my signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, 4 Pharaoh will not listen to you. Then I will lay my hand on Egypt and bring my armies, my people the sons of Isra’el, out of the land of Egypt with great acts of judgment. 5 Then, when I stretch out my hand over Egypt and bring the people of Isra’el out from among them, the Egyptians will know that I am Adonai.”
6 Moshe and Aharon did exactly what Adonai ordered them to do. 7 Moshe was eighty years old and Aharon eighty-three when they spoke to Pharaoh.
(iv) 8 Adonai said to Moshe and Aharon, 9 “When Pharaoh says to you, ‘Perform a miracle,’ tell Aharon to take his staff and throw it down in front of Pharaoh, so that it can become a snake.” 10 Moshe and Aharon went in to Pharaoh and did this, as Adonai had ordered — Aharon threw down his staff in front of Pharaoh and his servants, and it turned into a snake. 11 But Pharaoh in turn called for the sages and sorcerers; and they too, the magicians of Egypt, did the same thing, making use of their secret arts. 12 Each one threw his staff down, and they turned into snakes. But Aharon’s staff swallowed up theirs. 13 Nevertheless, Pharaoh was made hardhearted; and he didn’t listen to them, as Adonai had said would happen.
14 Adonai said to Moshe, “Pharaoh is stubborn. He refuses to let the people go. 15 Go to Pharaoh in the morning when he goes out to the water. Stand on the riverbank to confront him, take in your hand the staff which was turned into a snake, 16 and say to him, ‘Adonai, the God of the Hebrews, sent me to you to say: “Let my people go, so that they can worship me in the desert.” But until now you haven’t listened; 17 so Adonai says, “This will let you know that I am Adonai”: I will take the staff in my hand and strike the water in the river, and it will be turned into blood. 18 The fish in the river will die, the river will stink and the Egyptians won’t want to drink water from the river.’”
19 Adonai said to Moshe, “Say to Aharon, ‘Take your staff, reach out your hand over the waters of Egypt, over their rivers, canals, ponds and all their reservoirs, so that they can turn into blood. There will be blood throughout the whole land of Egypt, even in the wooden buckets and stone jars.’” 20 Moshe and Aharon did exactly what Adonai had ordered. He raised the staff and, in the sight of Pharaoh and his servants, struck the water in the river; and all the water in the river was turned into blood. 21 The fish in the river died, and the river stank so badly that the Egyptians couldn’t drink its water. There was blood throughout all the land of Egypt.
22 But the magicians of Egypt did the same with their secret arts, so that Pharaoh was made hardhearted and didn’t listen to them, as Adonai had said would happen. 23 Pharaoh just turned and went back to his palace, without taking any of this to heart. 24 All the Egyptians dug around the river for water to drink, because they couldn’t drink the river water.
25 Seven days after Adonai had struck the river, 26 (8:1) Adonai said to Moshe, “Go in to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘Here is what Adonai says: “Let my people go, so that they can worship me. 27 (8:2) If you refuse to let them go, I will strike all your territory with frogs. 28 (8:3) The river will swarm with frogs. They will go up, enter your palace and go into your bedroom, onto your bed. They will enter the houses of your servants and your people and go into your ovens and kneading bowls. 29 (8:4) The frogs will climb all over you, your people and your servants.”’”
8 (5) Adonai said to Moshe, “Say to Aharon, ‘Reach out your hand with your staff over the rivers, canals and ponds; and cause frogs to come up onto the land of Egypt.’” 2 (6) Aharon put out his hand over the waters of Egypt, and the frogs came up and covered the land of Egypt. 3 (7) But the magicians did the same with their secret arts and brought up frogs onto the land of Egypt.
4 (8) Then Pharaoh summoned Moshe and Aharon and said, “Intercede with Adonai to take the frogs away from me and my people, and I will let the people go and sacrifice to Adonai.” 5 (9) Moshe said to Pharaoh, “Not only that, but you can have the honor of naming the time when I will pray for you, your servants and your people to be rid of the frogs, both yourselves and your homes, and that they stay only in the river.” 6 (10) He answered, “Tomorrow.” Moshe said, “It will be as you have said, and from this you will learn that Adonai our God has no equal. (v) 7 (11) The frogs will leave you and your homes, also your servants and your people; they will stay in the river only.” 8 (12) Moshe and Aharon left Pharaoh’s presence, and Moshe cried to Adonai about the frogs he had brought on Pharaoh. 9 (13) Adonai did as Moshe had asked — the frogs died in the houses, courtyards and fields; 10 (14) they gathered them in heaps till the land stank. 11 (15) But when Pharaoh saw that he had been given some relief, he made himself hardhearted and would not listen to them, just as Adonai had said would happen.
12 (16) Adonai said to Moshe, “Say to Aharon: ‘Reach out with your staff and strike the dust on the ground; it will become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.’” 13 (17) They did it — Aharon reached out his hand with his staff and struck the dust on the ground, and there were lice on people and animals; all the dust on the ground became lice throughout the whole land of Egypt. 14 (18) The magicians tried with their secret arts to produce lice, but they couldn’t. There were lice on people and animals. 15 (19) Then the magicians said to Pharaoh, “This is the finger of God.” But Pharaoh was made hardhearted, so that he didn’t listen to them, just as Adonai had said would happen.
16 (20) Adonai said to Moshe, “Get up early in the morning, stand before Pharaoh when he goes out to the water and say to him, ‘Here is what Adonai says: “Let my people go, so that they can worship me. 17 (21) Otherwise, if you won’t let my people go, I will send swarms of insects on you, your servants and your people, and into your houses. The houses of the Egyptians will be full of swarms of insects, and likewise the ground they stand on. 18 (22) But I will set apart the land of Goshen, where my people live — no swarms of insects will be there — so that you can realize that I am Adonai, right here in the land. (vi) 19 (23) Yes, I will distinguish between my people and your people, and this sign will happen by tomorrow.”’” 20 (24) Adonai did it: terrible swarms of insects went into Pharaoh’s palace and into all his servants’ houses — the insects ruined the entire land of Egypt.
21 (25) Pharaoh summoned Moshe and Aharon and said, “Go, and sacrifice to your God here in the land.” 22 (26) But Moshe replied, “It would be inappropriate for us to do that, because the animal we sacrifice to Adonai our God is an abomination to the Egyptians. Won’t the Egyptians stone us to death if before their very eyes we sacrifice what they consider an abomination? 23 (27) No, we will go three days’ journey into the desert and sacrifice to Adonai our God, as he has ordered us to do.” 24 (28) Pharaoh said, “I will let you go, so that you can sacrifice to Adonai your God in the desert. Only you are not to go very far away. Intercede on my behalf.” 25 (29) Moshe said, “All right, I am going away from you, and I will intercede with Adonai; so that tomorrow, the swarms of insects will leave Pharaoh, his servants and his people. Just make sure that Pharaoh stops playing games with the people by preventing them from going and sacrificing to Adonai.”
26 (30) Moshe left Pharaoh and interceded with Adonai, 27 (31) and Adonai did what Moshe had asked: he removed the swarms of insects from Pharaoh, his servants and his people — not one remained. 28 (32) But this time, too, Pharaoh made himself stubborn and didn’t let the people go.
9 Then Adonai said to Moshe, “Go to Pharaoh, and tell him, ‘Here is what Adonai, the God of the Hebrews, says: “Let my people go, so that they can worship me. 2 If you refuse to let them go and persist in holding on to them, 3 the hand of Adonai is on your livestock in the field — on the horses, donkeys, camels, cattle and flocks — and will make them suffer a devastating illness. 4 But Adonai will distinguish between Egypt’s and Isra’el’s livestock — nothing belonging to the people of Isra’el will die.”’” 5 Adonai determined the exact time by saying, “Tomorrow Adonai will do this in the land.” 6 The following day, Adonai did it — all the livestock of Egypt died; but not one of the animals belonging to the people of Isra’el died. 7 Pharaoh investigated and found that not even one of the animals of the people of Isra’el had died. Nevertheless, Pharaoh’s heart remained stubborn, and he didn’t let the people go.
8 Adonai said to Moshe and Aharon, “Take handfuls of ashes from a kiln, and let Moshe throw them in the air before Pharaoh’s eyes. 9 They will turn into fine dust over all the land of Egypt and become infected sores on men and animals throughout Egypt.” 10 So they took ashes from a kiln, stood in front of Pharaoh and threw them in the air; and they became infected sores on men and animals. 11 The magicians couldn’t even stand in Moshe’s presence because of the sores, which were on them as well as on the other Egyptians. 12 But Adonai made Pharaoh hardhearted, so that he didn’t listen to them — just as Adonai had said to Moshe.
13 Adonai said to Moshe, “Get up early in the morning, stand before Pharaoh, and say to him, ‘Here is what Adonai says: “Let my people go, so that they can worship me. 14 For this time, I will inflict my plagues on you, yourself, and on your officials and your people; so that you will realize that I am without equal in all the earth. 15 By now I could have stretched out my hand and struck you and your people with such severe plagues that you would have been wiped off the earth. 16 But it is for this very reason that I have kept you alive — to show you my power, and so that my name may resound throughout the whole earth. (vii) 17 Since you are still setting yourself up against my people and not letting them go, 18 tomorrow, about this time, I will cause a hailstorm so heavy that Egypt has had nothing like it from the day it was founded until now. 19 Therefore, send and hurry to bring indoors all your livestock and everything else you have in the field. For hail will fall on every human being and animal left in the field that hasn’t been brought home, and they will die.”’”
20 Whoever among Pharaoh’s servants feared what Adonai had said had his slaves and livestock escape into the houses; 21 but those who had no regard for what Adonai had said left their slaves and livestock in the field.
22 Adonai said to Moshe, “Reach out your hand toward the sky, so that there will be hail in all the land of Egypt, falling on people, animals and everything growing in the field, throughout the land of Egypt.” 23 Moshe reached out with his staff toward the sky, and Adonai sent thunder and hail, and fire ran down to the earth. Adonai caused it to hail on the land of Egypt — 24 it hailed, and fire flashed up with the hail; it was terrible, worse than any hailstorm in all of Egypt since it became a nation. 25 Throughout all the land of Egypt, the hail struck everything in the field, people and animals; and the hail struck every plant growing in the field and broke every tree there. 26 But in the land of Goshen, where the people of Isra’el were, there was no hail.
27 Pharaoh summoned Moshe and Aharon and said to them, “This time I have sinned: Adonai is in the right; I and my people are in the wrong. 28 Intercede with Adonai — we can’t take any more of this terrible thunder and hail; and I will let you go, you will stay no longer.” 29 Moshe said to him, “As soon as I have gone out of the city, I will spread out my hands to Adonai; the thunder will end, and there won’t be any more hail — so that you can know that the earth belongs to Adonai. 30 But you and your servants, I know you still won’t fear Adonai, God.” 31 The flax and barley were ruined, because the barley was ripe and the flax in bud. 32 But the wheat and buckwheat were not ruined, because they come up later. (Maftir) 33 Moshe went out of the city, away from Pharaoh, and spread out his hands to Adonai. The thunder and hail ended, and the rain stopped pouring down on the earth. 34 When Pharaoh saw that the rain, hail and thunder had ended, he sinned still more by making himself hardhearted, he and his servants. 35 Pharaoh was made hardhearted, and he didn’t let the people of Isra’el go, just as Adonai had said through Moshe.
Ezekiel 28:25 – 29:21;
25 “Adonai Elohim says, ‘Once I have gathered the house of Isra’el from the peoples among whom they are scattered, once I have shown my holiness in them as the Goyim watch, then they will live in their own land, which I gave to my servant Ya‘akov. 26 They will have security when they live there, building houses and planting vineyards; yes, they will live in safety, once I have executed judgments against all their contemptuous neighbors. Then they will know that I am Adonai their God.’”
29 On the twelfth day of the tenth month of the tenth year, the word of Adonai came to me: 2 “Human being, turn your face against Pharaoh king of Egypt; prophesy against him and against all Egypt; 3 speak out; and say that Adonai Elohim says:
‘I am against you,
Pharaoh king of Egypt,
you big crocodile
lying in the streams of the Nile!
You say, “My Nile is mine;
I made it for myself.”
4 But I will put hooks in your jaws
and make your Nile fish stick to your scales.
Yes, I will bring you up from your Nile,
with all your Nile fish sticking to your scales,
5 and leave you in the desert,
you and all your Nile fish.
You will fall in the open field
and not be gathered or buried;
but I will give you as food
to wild animals and birds.
6 Then all who live in Egypt
will know that I am Adonai,
because they have been a support made of straw
for the house of Isra’el.
7 When they grasped you in hand, you splintered
and threw all their shoulders out of joint;
when they leaned on you, you broke
and made them all wrench their backs.’
8 “Therefore Adonai Elohim says, ‘I will bring the sword against you and eliminate both your people and your animals. 9 The land of Egypt will become a desolate waste, and they will know that I am Adonai; because he said, “The Nile is mine; I made it.” 10 So I am against you and your Nile; and I will make the land of Egypt a totally desolate waste from Migdol to S’venah, all the way to the border of Ethiopia. 11 No human foot will pass through it, and no animal foot will pass through it; it will be uninhabited for forty years. 12 Yes, I will make the land of Egypt desolate, even when compared with other desolate countries, likewise her cities in comparison with other ruined cities; they will be desolate forty years. I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations and disperse them through the countries.’
13 “For this is what Adonai Elohim says: ‘At the end of forty years I will gather the Egyptians from the peoples where they were scattered — 14 I will restore the fortunes of Egypt and cause them to return to the land of their origin, Patros. But there they will be a humble kingdom, 15 the humblest of kingdoms. It will never again dominate other nations; I will reduce them, so that they never again rule other nations. 16 Moreover, they will no longer be a source of confidence for Isra’el to turn to; rather, it will only bring to mind their guilt in having turned to them before. Then they will know that I am Adonai Elohim.’”
17 On the first day of the first month of the twenty-seventh year, the word of Adonai came to me: 18 “Human being, N’vukhadretzar king of Bavel had his army mount a massive expedition against Tzor; [the loads of dirt they carried] made every head bald and every shoulder raw; yet neither he nor his army derived any benefit from Tzor out of this expedition against it. 19 Therefore Adonai Elohim says, ‘I will give the land of Egypt to N’vukhadretzar king of Bavel. He will carry off its riches, take its spoil and its prey; and these will be the wages for his army. 20 I am giving him the land of Egypt as his wages for which he worked, because they were working for me,’ says Adonai Elohim. 21 ‘When that day comes I will cause power to return to the house of Isra’el, and I will enable you [Yechezk’el] to open your mouth among them. Then they will know that I am Adonai.’”
15 Then I saw another sign in heaven, a great and wonderful one — seven angels with the seven plagues that are the final ones; because with them, God’s fury is finished. 2 I saw what looked like a sea of glass mixed with fire. Those defeating the beast, its image and the number of its name were standing by the sea of glass, holding harps which God had given them. 3 They were singing the song of Moshe, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb:
“Great and wonderful are the things you have done,
Adonai, God of heaven’s armies![a]
Just and true are your ways,
king of the nations!
4 Adonai, who will not fear and glorify your name?
because you alone are holy.
All nations will come and worship before you,
for your righteous deeds have been revealed.”
5 After this I looked, and the sanctuary (that is, the Tent of Witness in heaven) was opened, 6 and out of the sanctuary came the seven angels with the seven plagues. They were dressed in clean bright linen and had gold belts around their chests. 7 One of the four living beings gave to the seven angels seven gold bowls filled with the fury of God, who lives forever and ever. 8 Then the sanctuary was filled with smoke from God’s Sh’khinah, that is, from his power; and no one could enter the sanctuary until the seven plagues of the seven angels had accomplished their purpose.
16 I heard a loud voice from the sanctuary say to the seven angels, “Go, and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of God’s fury!”
2 So the first one went and poured his bowl onto the earth, and disgusting and painful sores appeared on all the people who had the mark of the beast and worshipped its image.
3 The second one poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became like the blood of a dead person, and every living thing in the sea died.
4 The third one poured out his bowl into the rivers and springs of water, and they turned to blood. 5 Then I heard the angel of the waters say,
“O HaKadosh, the One who is and was,
you are just in these judgments of yours.
6 They poured out the blood of your people and your prophets,
so you have made them drink blood. They deserve it!”
7 Then I heard the altar say,
“Yes, Adonai, God of heaven’s armies,[b]
your judgments are true and just!”
8 The fourth one poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was permitted to burn people with fire. 9 People were burned by the intense heat; yet they cursed the name of God, who had the authority over these plagues, instead of turning from their sins to give him glory.
10 The fifth one poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom grew dark. People gnawed on their tongues from the pain, 11 yet they cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and sores, and did not turn from their sinful deeds.
12 The sixth one poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water dried up, in order to prepare the way for the kings from the east. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits that looked like frogs; they came from the mouth of the dragon, from the mouth of the beast and from the mouth of the false prophet. 14 They are miracle-working demonic spirits which go out to the kings of the whole inhabited world to assemble them for the War of the Great Day of Adonai-Tzva’ot. 15 (“Look! I am coming like a thief! How blessed are those who stay alert and keep their clothes clean, so that they won’t be walking naked and be publicly put to shame!”) 16 And they gathered the kings to the place which in Hebrew is called Har Megiddo.
17 The seventh one poured out his bowl on the air, and a loud voice came out of the Temple from the throne, saying, “It is done!” 18 There were flashes of lightning, voices and peals of thunder; and there was a massive earthquake, such as has never occurred since mankind has been on earth, so violent was the earthquake. 19 The great city was split into three parts, the cities of the nations fell, and God remembered Bavel the Great and made her drink the wine from the cup of his raging fury. 20 Every island fled, and no mountains were to be found.
This is from Prophecy 105, YAHUVEH said to put this up on all Prophecies from now on: I warned you a long time ago Elisabeth (Elisheva) not to name this Ministry after a man or a woman even before there was a Ministry. I put it in your spirit for none of this has been done by your hand, none of this has come forth from your mouth. It is from the Mouth of YAHUVEH that has given birth. It is from the Mouth of YAHUSHUA your MASHIACH that has given birth. It is from the Mouth of the RUACH ha KODESH your IMMAYAH that has given birth. If it had only been by your hand it would have failed long ago. It is by the SHKHINYAH GLORY’S Wind that blows across this earth, the Holy Wind of Revival, it is not by your breath or it would have failed. (Isaiah 42:8)

Torah Portion: YAH redeems Israel’s Past, Present And Future
Prophecy 87 Israel, Oh Israel, Hear Oh Israel, Jerusalem And The Rest Of The World What I, YAHUVEH, Have To Say!
I, YAHUVEH, bless those who are a blessing unto I, YAHUVEH, and YAHUSHUA. I cannot bless the rebellious. I must chastise those that I love or I cannot say that I love you. I grieve for what I must do for only a remnant of Israel shall be saved. Oh Israel, you punish your enemies far more than I intended, for you forget that Abraham is before MY face reminding ME your enemies are also the seed of Abraham through Ishmael. You deny MY SON YAHUSHUA’s Holy Saving Blood that drenches Jerusalem’s soil, as they do.
Even thousands of years later one drop of YAHUSHUA’s Saving Blood covers the world, yet you refuse to accept the gift I gave as your Blood Sacrifice, greater than any animal blood sacrifice. I not only allowed MY beloved SON YAHUSHUA to be crucified for the sins of this world and die and be buried in a tomb. I rose YAHUSHUA from the dead as a sign to Israel, not only is there life after death but I, YAHUVEH, chose Jerusalem for YAHUSHUA to die and be buried on your soil and rise again. Oh Jerusalem, the time is at hand when the world shall say, “You shall surely die and never rise again” but when Israel REPENTS and obeys, I shall raise Israel up once again.
Hear oh Israel, I am preparing MY Two Witnesses that now live on this earth and who will soon be caught up to Heaven and return again endowed with new anointing Powers from Heaven and a Glorified Body, no longer subject to the bondages of a physical body. MY Two Witnesses will come to you again with signs, wonders and miracles proclaiming I, YAHUVEH’s Name and Glory and the Name of the only Prince of Peace who is the only MESSIAH, YAHUSHUA MY SON. MY Two Witnesses will again come to rebuke you oh Israel and warn you to repent.
Hear oh Israel and Jerusalem, because you refused YAHUSHUA’s Blood at Calvary to wash your sins away, you shall have blood clear up to the horse’s bridles and it will flow through your land. (Rev:14:20)
Hear oh Israel and Jerusalem, Jacob wrestled with I, YAHUVEH, and because of this he was crippled and walked with a limp (Gen 32:24-26). You have been wrestling with ME oh Israel and you shall be crippled, never knowing true peace until you cry out BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE Name OF YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH! Then you shall be blessed in ways exceedingly and abundantly more than you dare dream or ask for.
YAHUSHUA opened the eyes of the blind and scales fell from their eyes and they praised YAHUSHUA for their sight giving Praise and Glory to I, YAHUVEH. You however oh Israel and Jerusalem, you denied these miracles were from Heaven and so now you are blind and have scales on your eyes and that is why you will be deceived by the son of satan who some call the anti-messiah for 3 1/2 years you will be deceived and believe his false peace.
YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH proved HE is the SON of I, YAHUVEH, as HE did signs wonders and miracles all over Jerusalem and Israel. Yet you persecuted HIM for this and called the miracles, works of the devil. In the Great Tribulation satans son (anti-messiah) will come to you and deceive you with false signs, wonders and miracles and they shall be powers from satan because you rejected the genuine, you will be tricked by the counterfeit signs, wonders and miracles. (Rev 13:11)
MY Two Witnesses will minister again as YAHUSHUA did. MY Two Witnesses shadows will heal, restore and deliver and even the Holy martyred dead shall arise. Food will be multiplied a thousand fold as the loaves and the fishes were when YAHUSHUA prayed. What was done once will be done again in Jerusalem and whomever and wherever MY Two Witnesses are sent and received and believed these miracles will be done in YAHUSHUA’s Name again. They shall minister as YAHUSHUA did and call judgment down on the Pharisees. As YAHUSHUA was sacrificed, MY Two Witnesses shall sacrifice themselves and be killed but 3 1/2 days later will rise from the dead as a sign that YAHUSHUA LIVES and RULES and REIGNS from Heaven and HE truly is the SON of I, YAHUVEH. (Rev 11:3-13)
Hear oh Israel, Jerusalem and the rest of the World, as YAHUSHUA was feared by the heathen, scorned, mocked, hated, persecuted and failed attempts made on HIS life so too will MY Two Witnesses suffer the same fate. As YAHUSHUA cursed the unfruitful fig tree and it withered and died for not producing fruit, so too will MY Two Witnesses curse the unfruitful works and sins of mankind.(Matt 21:18-20) The unfruitful fig tree symbolizing heathen mankind will also wither and die as Words of Fire will proceed out of MY Two Witnesses mouths. The enemies hate YAHUSHUA, Holiness and MY Two Witnesses and it will be like in the times of Elijah of Old (In Hebrew, Eliyahu) and MY enemies will be consumed with fire.
Hear oh Israel, Jerusalem and the rest of the World, as YAHUSHUA met the woman at the well in Samaria and gave her the Living Water at the well and she received the truth and went back to her city and shared the good news and shared the Living Water of truth with others.(John 4) As YAHUSHUA said to the woman at the well go and drink of this Living Water and you shall never thirst again. MY SON YAHUSHUA is the Fountain of Life, YAHUSHUA is the Well of Living Water no one can come to I, YAHUVEH, without drinking from HIS Fountain of Life and without accepting his Blood Sacrifice at Calvary.

Prophecy 7 Hold On Tight To The Hem of MY Garment!
The Hem of MY garment, it’s not enough to just touch it anymore. Keep knocking at MY door, then when the answer doesn’t come fast enough, pound. When you get weary, keep on asking, seeking and ye shall find, but don’t stop till you hear from Heaven.
For I have promised you MY Children, bread and not the crumbs of this world. For you see judgment has come to the house of YAHUVEH and it’s not as easy as touching MY hem, or knocking softly for your answers, you better be prepared it may take wrestling for your blessing, like Jacob. But it only proves your faith and makes it stronger, which is needed in these end times. So keep on saying no more crumbs. You will not be denied. For you’re the Blood bought Bride of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH.
I will answer and deliver you. I do not lie. For you are promised not the crumbs of this world, but the bread of life, the children’s bread of healing, deliverance, prosperity, life abundantly and full of glory. For YAHUSHUA is your Bread of Life and I want to see if you will still praise ME, and hang on to your faith though I don’t answer right away. I am not always a microwave God.
Yes, I know about microwaves, who do you think gave you the invention? You have scripture to stand on, read Matthew 15: 22-28 about a Canaanite woman’s faith. She was worshipping YAHUSHUA, yet he ignored her, let the disciples rebuke her, call her a dog, said the blessing was for another not her. You say, “Why YAHUSHUA, why would you have done all this?” Because in these last days, all of this will happen to MY most faithful followers, those that worship ME, this will be done by others in MY Name.
You will be insulted, rejected, persecuted, yet if you continue to hold on to your faith, though I don’t rescue right away, then like this Canaanite woman you will be rewarded. For I will see how great your faith is. For in these end-times I am preparing MY body in this way, when I come again how many will have hung on to their faith? How many will turn away when they call out in prayer for a need and I don’t answer right away?
You must tell them to be willing to wrestle with ME for their blessing like Jacob did. For I desire to bless. I only want to test and see how badly you want this blessing. Will you still worship ME when I don’t answer right away? It’s not MY chastisement that is causing this, for the woman fell and worshipped at MY feet. You are worshipping at MY feet. But judgment has started at the house of YAHUVEH and one of the things I am testing is how strong is your faith?
How loyal and how much will you rely on ME? Like the Canaanite woman, your faith and loyalty will be rewarded for you shall see what you desire, and even more exceedingly and more abundantly will I shower down MY blessings like a river overflowing. You will have so much joy. And I will bless you so much. You will be forced to give unto others. Hold on tight to the hem of MY garment. Don’t let go. Keep knocking till the door opens to your blessings you have asked for. I will answer eventually. Lean not unto thy own understanding but in all thy ways acknowledge ME and I shall direct your paths.
Remember the trials of your faith are more precious than gold. Keep your eyes on your Savior and not on the turbulence of the sea or the waves will drown you. But I am here to save you. For I am your Savior and redeemer am I not? I will not fail you nor forsake you. I know how much pressure to put on the clay before it breaks, how much fire to allow you to go through before you get consumed. The waves of despair will not drown you. For I am here to rescue and deliver not only your soul, but mind, body and Spirit. Trust ME and ye shall see it come to pass. Then remember who delivered you ’twas no man or woman, but your God who created you.
Torah Portion: Pharaoh Remains Prideful Despite Marvels And Wonders
Prophecy 1 Judgment Starts At The House Of YAHUVEH!
Pride, great pride, has crept into even the temples that I have poured MY anointing out upon. Who has the bigger congregation, the most money? This sickens ME. Who wins the most souls? The jealousy and covetousness are in MY own temples. This sickens ME. You say, “When is YAHUSHUA coming again?” I say, “I have been waiting for the church, the temples, to clean themselves up.” Stop bickering amongst yourselves. Expose the wolves that have been devouring MY sheep. They are behind the pulpits and everyone is so concerned with their own churches, no one cares about the sheep.
Who can build bigger temples? Who can get the most media attention? Who is the number one evangelist, prophet, pastor, church? I am telling you through this prophetess, listen to her. Judgment starts at the house of YAHUVEH! Then I will deal with the heathen. This sickens ME. I long to cradle you all in MY arms, and instead you bicker and insult one another because of your gender. I choose to use who I choose to use. The humblest I will use in a mighty way.
I choose to use this vessel because she thinks she is the weakest of the lot, but I say once again, I will use the humble and meek, those who no one thinks I will use for MY power shows up best in weak people. Others know it is not of them and they don’t boast. For they know it is only MY anointing that breaks every yoke, fetter, chain, shackle and bondage. It is not by your might nor power but by MY Spirit. Thus saith YAHUSHUA, “I chose to come as a babe, the weakest of all to prove, don’t look on the outward, look on the inward! The anointing knows no gender, race or age.”
The RUACH ha KODESH (Holy Spirit) uses willing, obedient vessels of clay, not those that shout, “Use me because I am so beautiful, I am more holy than the rest.” I will not use those who think they are gold; I use those that know they are broken vessels of clay but mighty warriors for YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH. In 1997, I will launch out those who have had ministries that have remained humble or nonexistent to the mass majority. Those that I have not just called but those that have been chosen, chosen because of their faith that I am the author and finisher of. I do not start something then fail. I am your God that cannot fail.
Get ready, for in 1997 I tell you the wealth of the wicked will be turned into the hands of the righteous through MY Name and MY Blood, YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH’s. It will be MY sheep that have the wealth and the jobs. The enemy’s children will see this and gnash their teeth in anger and jealousy, but I do this to prove MY Scriptures are not a lie. Deut. 28 blessings are still reserved for MY Children and I know them by name and by the hairs on their head.
Get ready because for MY Children, this is the greatest outpouring of MY RUACH ha KODESH (Holy Spirit) yet. I will use those who think they are not popular, beautiful, lack the education, those that know they can do nothing without MY anointing of the RUACH ha KODESH (Holy Spirit). Those that have been discarded, abused, ignored, told to give up, it’s not worth it.
Those that have not had the finances will look to Almighty God and I will open the windows of heaven and bless them so abundantly that they will be forced to give to others so they too will be blessed abundantly. And this shall be like a chain reaction. MY Word says, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in good health even as thy soul prospers.”
I am going to prove MY Word cannot return unto ME void. Beware who you discard as worthless. For it’s the pastor who has the small flock, but insists that the RUACH ha KODESH have full control no matter how many of the sheep leave for churches where there is no signs, wonders, miracles, for there is no conviction of the RUACH ha KODESH either.
Beware of rejecting the evangelists who in your eyes are unknown, and use their own finances to spread the gospel and win souls. Beware of mocking, abusing and ignoring the prophet that comes to you with a prophecy and you don’t want to believe the prophecy because they are the wrong gender or they are a nobody and are not famous. Beware of offending the youngsters I am raising up to prophesy and yes, to warn the elders to listen to the voice of Almighty God.
Get out of pride. Because these are the very ones I am sending. When you offend them you offend the God who sent them. They are merely MY messengers, so don’t stone the messenger. It will be the nobodies that I am raising up, the unknowns that I will work MY signs, wonders and miracles through, and a mouth piece for YAHUVEH. For they are not a nobody. Only in the eyes of the proud. They are a somebody to ME for I can and will use them mightily for MY praise, honor, and glory. For they will not steal that from ME like others have tried to do.
VA’ERA -And I Appeared
“And I appeared Va’era to Avraham, Yitzchak, and Yaacov as El Shaddai -אל שדי but by My name, YAHUVEH -יהוה, I did not make Myself known to them.” (Exodus 6:2–3)
In last week’s Torah study, YAH appeared to Moses at the foot of Mount Sinai in a burning bush, instructing him to lead the Israelites out of Pharaoh’s bondage. Because Moses perceived himself to be slow of speech, YAH appointed his brother Aaron to be his spokesperson.
When the brothers went before Pharaoh, he refused to let the Israelites go. Instead of making the situation better, the Israelites’ enslavement became more oppressive. Pharaoh required them to gather their own straw whereas previously it had been provided for them and still produce the same quota of bricks.
Of course, the children of Israel complained to Moses, so he brought their suffering before YAH, who reassured him that things would turn around. YAH told him that He would not only save the Israelites with a mighty deliverance, but Pharaoh would drive them from Egypt.
YAH Redeems Israel Past, Present and Future
In this Parasha, YAH promises Moses that He will accomplish four redemptive acts: He would bring out the Israelites from their suffering in Egypt, rescue them from slavery, redeem them from their oppression with His outstretched arm, and take them as His own nation -Aam.
These four promises are called the Four Expressions of Redemption, and they are traditionally commemorated during the Passover Seder ritual meal with four cups of wine.
For each of these acts of deliverance written in Exodus 6:6–7, YAH used the following Hebrew words:
- Hotzeiti -הוֹצֵאתִי, which means I will bring out;
- Hitzalti -הִצַּלְתִּי, which means I will rescue;
- Ga’alti -גָאַלְתִּי, which means I will redeem; and
- Lakachti -לָקַחְתִּי, which means I will take.
YAH also makes a fifth expression of redemption. He promises He will bring heveiti הֵבֵאתִי His people back into their own land.
“And I will bring [heveiti] you to the land I swore with uplifted hand to give to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob. I will give it to you as a possession. I am YAHUVEH.” (Exodus 6:8)
Two thousand years ago, when the Jewish People lived in the Promised Land, this fifth expression may have been commemorated during the Seder with a fifth cup of wine.
Although YAH has been rescuing the Jewish people from their exile and bringing them back into the Land, the fifth cup is considered to represent a complete Redemption through Messiah.
This fifth cup at the Passover Seder, therefore, is called the Cup of Elijah, which is left untouched for the Prophet Elijah, who is expected to return to earth to herald the coming of the Messiah and His Messianic reign.
When YAH speaks a Word, it will be done as He has said, despite how circumstances appear in the natural.
Still, we live in a fallen world. Many of us suffer from spiritual myopia short-sightedness caused by focusing on our own suffering and loss.
The Israelites were no different. They were so downtrodden and grieved in spirit that they simply could not believe what Moses said the LORD would do for them. They couldn’t even listen to his words of hope.
“Moses reported this to the Israelites, but they did not listen to him because of their discouragement and harsh labor.” (Exodus 6:9)
This tendency in human nature should remind us to be patient and merciful as we minister to people.
Even today, there are those whose bondage is so cruel and whose spirit so broken that they also cannot hear those who preach the Good News of YAHUSHUA. Sometimes, they must watch us walk in the power of YAH, seeing signs and wonders before they will listen and believe.
Sometimes, we must faithfully sow seeds, patiently waiting as YAH grows them.
“I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but YAH has been making it grow.” (1 Corinthians 3:6)
As YAH had commanded them, Moses and his brother Aaron returned to Pharaoh over and over again, demanding that he let YAH’s people go so that they may serve Him in the wilderness.
This whole account of YAH’s redemption of Israel from Egypt has a spiritual parallel in our salvation from the kingdom of darkness, ruled by haSatan and the Kingdom of Light, ruled by YAHUVEH.
We are delivered from haSatan through faith in YAHUSHUA, the Passover Lamb, not simply to walk away and “do our own thing.” As it was for the Israelites, the purpose of our freedom is to serve the living GOD.
“For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” (Colossians 1:13–14)
Pharaoh Remains Prideful Despite Marvels and Wonders
YAH gave Moses and Aaron a special sign to show Pharaoh. In Hebrew the sign is called a mofet, which means a marvel or wonder. Aaron was to throw his stick down before Pharaoh, and it would be transformed. In most English translations, we read that the stick became a serpent; but in the Hebrew, the word used is tannin, which means a crocodile.
However, Pharaoh, as YAH foreknew, still refused to let the people go; therefore, YAH sent His judgment on Egypt in the form of the Ten Plagues.
“Pharaoh will not listen to you. Then I will lay My hand on Egypt and bring My hosts, My people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great acts of judgment.” (Exodus 7:4)
These plagues are remembered each year at the Passover Seder during the second cup of wine. One drop is removed from the cup for each of the plagues, while the leader recites the list of judgments in Hebrew.
The idea behind this custom is that our cup which represents joy cannot be full while others are suffering.
First, the waters of the Nile River were turned to blood –dam, making it undrinkable. Then frogs swarmed the land, and then an infestation of lice –kinim tormented man and beast.
Until the plague of lice –kinim, the Egyptian magicians and sorcerers were able to duplicate the plagues but, with this plague, they could not. Therefore, they recognized this to be the finger of YAH.
“Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh: ‘This is the finger of YAH’; and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as YAHUVEH had spoken.” (Exodus 8:19)
Pharaoh had hardened his heart and would not listen to the voice of reason—one of the surest signs of pride. A humble man will receive correction willingly, but a person with pride immediately becomes defensive and will not listen to others. This can bring about his downfall.
“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18)
Note the contrast between Pharaoh and Moses, who even today is considered to be the most humble man to walk the earth. When Yethro, Moses’ father-in-law, corrected him on his approach to settling disputes between the Israelites in the wilderness, Moses listened and took heed.
“So Moses listened to the voice of his father-in-law and did all that he had said.” (Exodus 18:24)
Although Pharaoh promised to let the Jewish People go after the plague of lice, he hardened his heart and reneged on his promise. As a result, YAH sent swarms of flies –arov that covered the land, then a disease –dever that killed all the cattle.
YAH made a distinction between Israel and Egypt. While all the cattle of Egypt died, not even one of Israel’s cattle fell to the disease.
This underlines the importance and reliability of being in a covenantal relationship with the Almighty GOD. None of Egypt’s best sorcerers and masters of the occult could save them from the hand of GOD.
In the sixth plague, when YAH turned dust into painful boils –shechin upon man and beast, even the magicians suffered, and they could not stand before Moses because of them. (Exodus 9:9–11)
This week’s Parasha ends with the seventh plague of hail –barad.
YAH sent thunder, fire and a grievous hail that destroyed anything and everything in the field—man and beast and all vegetation. Only in Goshen where the Israelites lived was there no hail. (Exodus 9:26)
Like Egypt, Like the World
We know from the book of Revelation that many of these plagues will again strike the inhabitants of the earth in the end times. These events that happened in Egypt foreshadow what is to come—possibly on a global scale—in the final days.
In his vision, John describes the seven last plagues on the earth:
“I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of YAHUVEH.” (Revelation 15:1)
As YAH pours out the full bowl of His wrath upon the earth, loathsome sores appear on all those who have taken the mark of the beast and worship his image (Revelation 16:2). Then, just like in Egypt, the waters turn to blood (Revelation 16:3–6). Other plagues also bombard the earth, such as darkness, scorching fire, and destructive hail.
“From the sky huge hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds, fell on people. And they cursed YAH on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.” (Revelation 16:21)
May we be ever mindful that we are living in the end times; and while we remain safe in the security of our holy covenant with Elohim, let us patiently share the Good News and diligently pray for mercy upon those who stubbornly continue to rebel against YAHUVEH, YAHUSHUA AND RUACH HAKODESH.
“You will again have compassion on us; You will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.” (Micah 7:19)
“Hear the word of YAHUVEH , you nations; proclaim it in distant coastlands: ‘He who scattered Israel will gather them and will watch over His flock like a shepherd.'” (Jeremiah 31:10)
