Welcome to Mishpatim /Laws, this week’s Parasha /Torah Portion.
21 “These are the rulings you are to present to them:
2 “If you purchase a Hebrew slave, he is to work six years; but in the seventh, he is to be given his freedom without having to pay anything. 3 If he came single, he is to leave single; if he was married when he came, his wife is to go with him when he leaves. 4 But if his master gave him a wife, and she bore him sons or daughters, then the wife and her children will belong to her master, and he will leave by himself. 5 Nevertheless, if the slave declares, ‘I love my master, my wife and my children, so I don’t want to go free,’ 6 then his master is to bring him before God; and there at the door or doorpost, his master is to pierce his ear with an awl; and the man will be his slave for life.
7 “If a man sells his daughter as a slave, she is not to go free like the men-slaves. 8 If her master married her but decides she no longer pleases him, then he is to allow her to be redeemed. He is not allowed to sell her to a foreign people, because he has treated her unfairly. 9 If he has her marry his son, then he is to treat her like a daughter. 10 If he marries another wife, he is not to reduce her food, clothing or marital rights. 11 If he fails to provide her with these three things, she is to be given her freedom without having to pay anything.
12 “Whoever attacks a person and causes his death must be put to death. 13 If it was not premeditated but an act of God, then I will designate for you a place to which he can flee. 14 But if someone willfully kills another after deliberate planning, you are to take him even from my altar and put him to death.
15 “Whoever attacks his father or mother must be put to death.
16 “Whoever kidnaps someone must be put to death, regardless of whether he has already sold him or the person is found still in his possession.
17 “Whoever curses his father or mother must be put to death.
18 “If two people fight, and one hits the other with a stone or with his fist, and the injured party doesn’t die but is confined to his bed; 19 then, if he recovers enough to be able to walk around outside, even if with a cane, the attacker will be free of liability, except to compensate him for his loss of time and take responsibility for his care until his recovery is complete.
(ii) 20 “If a person beats his male or female slave with a stick so severely that he dies, he is to be punished; 21 except that if the slave lives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his property.
22 “If people are fighting with each other and happen to hurt a pregnant woman so badly that her unborn child dies, then, even if no other harm follows, he must be fined. He must pay the amount set by the woman’s husband and confirmed by judges. 23 But if any harm follows, then you are to give life for life, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 burn for burn, wound for wound and bruise for bruise.
26 “If a person hits his male or female slave’s eye and destroys it, he must let him go free in compensation for his eye. 27 If he knocks out his male or female slave’s tooth, he must let him go free in compensation for his tooth.
28 “If an ox gores a man or a woman to death, the ox is to be stoned and its flesh not eaten, but the owner of the ox will have no further liability. 29 However, if the ox was in the habit of goring in the past, and the owner was warned but did not confine it, so that it ended up killing a man or a woman; then the ox is to be stoned, and its owner too is to be put to death. 30 However, a ransom may be imposed on him; and the death penalty will be commuted if he pays the amount imposed. 31 If the ox gores a son or daughter, the same rule applies. 32 If the ox gores a male or female slave, its owner must give their master twelve ounces of silver; and the ox is to be stoned to death.
33 “If someone removes the cover from a cistern or digs one and fails to cover it, and an ox or donkey falls in, 34 the owner of the cistern must make good the loss by compensating the animal’s owner; but the dead animal will be his.
35 “If one person’s ox hurts another’s, so that it dies, they are to sell the live ox and divide the revenue from the sale; and they are also to divide the dead animal. 36 But if it is known that the ox was in the habit of goring in the past, and the owner did not confine it; he must pay ox for ox, but the dead animal will be his.
37 (22:1) “If someone steals an ox or a sheep and slaughters or sells it, he is to pay five oxen for an ox and four sheep for a sheep.
22 (2) “If a thief caught in the act of breaking in is beaten to death, it is not murder; 2 (3) unless it happens after sunrise, in which case it is murder. A thief must make restitution; so if he has nothing, he himself is to be sold to make good the loss from the theft. 3 (4) If what he stole is found alive in his possession, he is to pay double, no matter whether it is an ox, a donkey or a sheep.
(iii) 4 (5) “If a person causes a field or vineyard to be grazed over or lets his animal loose to graze in someone else’s field, he is to make restitution from the best produce of his own field and vineyard.
5 (6) “If a fire is started and spreads to thorns, so that stacked grain, standing grain or a field is destroyed, the person who lit it must make restitution.
6 (7) “If a person entrusts a neighbor with money or goods, and they are stolen from the trustee’s house, then, if the thief is found, he must pay double. 7 (8) But if the thief is not found, then the trustee must state before God that he did not take the person’s goods himself. 8 (9) In every case of dispute over ownership, whether of an ox, a donkey, a sheep, clothing, or any missing property, where one person says, ‘This is mine,’ both parties are to come before God; and the one whom God condemns must pay the other one double.
9 (10) “If a person trusts a neighbor to look after a donkey, ox, sheep or any animal, and it dies, is injured or is driven away unseen, 10 (11) then the neighbor’s oath before Adonai that he has not taken the goods will settle the matter between them — the owner is to accept it without the neighbor’s making restitution. 11 (12) But if it was stolen from the neighbor, he must make restitution to the owner. 12 (13) If it was torn to pieces by an animal, the neighbor must bring it as evidence, and then he doesn’t need to make good the loss.
13 (14) “If someone borrows something from his neighbor, and it gets injured or dies with the owner not present, he must make restitution. 14 (15) If the owner was present, he need not make good the loss. If the owner hired it out, the loss is covered by the hiring fee.
15 (16) “If a man seduces a virgin who is not engaged to be married and sleeps with her, he must pay the bride-price for her to be his wife. 16 (17) But if her father refuses to give her to him, he must pay a sum equivalent to the bride-price for virgins.
17 (18) “You are not to permit a sorceress to live.
18 (19) “Whoever has sexual relations with an animal must be put to death.
19 (20) “Anyone who sacrifices to any god other than Adonai alone is to be completely destroyed.
20 (21) “You must neither wrong nor oppress a foreigner living among you, for you yourselves were foreigners in the land of Egypt.
21 (22) “You are not to abuse any widow or orphan. 22 (23) If you do abuse them in any way, and they cry to me, I will certainly heed their cry. 23 (24) My anger will burn, and I will kill you with the sword — your own wives will be widows and your own children fatherless.
24 (25) “If you loan money to one of my people who is poor, you are not to deal with him as would a creditor; and you are not to charge him interest. 25 (26) If you take your neighbor’s coat as collateral, you are to restore it to him by sundown, 26 (27) because it is his only garment — he needs it to wrap his body; what else does he have in which to sleep? Moreover, if he cries out to me, I will listen; because I am compassionate.
(iv) 27 (28) “You are not to curse God, and you are not to curse a leader of your people.
28 (29) “You are not to delay offering from your harvest of grain, olive oil or wine.
“The firstborn of your sons you are to give to me. 29 (30) You are to do the same with your oxen and your sheep — it is to stay with its mother seven days, and on the eighth day you are to give it to me.
30 (31) “You are to be my specially separated people. Therefore you are not to eat any flesh torn by wild animals in the countryside; rather, throw it out for the dogs.
23 “You are not to repeat false rumors; do not join hands with the wicked by offering perjured testimony. 2 Do not follow the crowd when it does what is wrong; and don’t allow the popular view to sway you into offering testimony for any cause if the effect will be to pervert justice. 3 On the other hand, don’t favor a person’s lawsuit simply because he is poor.
4 “If you come upon your enemy’s ox or donkey straying, you must return it to him. 5 If you see the donkey which belongs to someone who hates you lying down helpless under its load, you are not to pass him by but to go and help him free it.
(v) 6 “Do not deny anyone justice in his lawsuit simply because he is poor. 7 Keep away from fraud, and do not cause the death of the innocent and righteous; for I will not justify the wicked. 8 You are not to receive a bribe, for a bribe blinds the clearsighted and subverts the cause of the righteous.
9 “You are not to oppress a foreigner, for you know how a foreigner feels, since you were foreigners in the land of Egypt.
10 “For six years, you are to sow your land with seed and gather in its harvest. 11 But the seventh year, you are to let it rest and lie fallow, so that the poor among your people can eat; and what they leave, the wild animals in the countryside can eat. Do the same with your vineyard and olive grove.
12 “For six days, you are to work. But on the seventh day, you are to rest, so that your ox and donkey can rest, and your slave-girl’s son and the foreigner be renewed.
13 “Pay attention to everything I have said to you; do not invoke the names of other gods or even let them be heard crossing your lips.
14 “Three times a year, you are to observe a festival for me. 15 Keep the festival of matzah: for seven days, as I ordered you, you are to eat matzah at the time determined in the month of Aviv; for it was in that month that you left Egypt. No one is to appear before me empty-handed. 16 Next, the festival of harvest, the firstfruits of your efforts sowing in the field; and last, the festival of ingathering, at the end of the year, when you gather in from the fields the results of your efforts. 17 Three times a year all your men are to appear before the Lord, Adonai.
18 “You are not to offer the blood of my sacrifice with leavened bread, nor is the fat of my festival to remain all night until morning.
19 “You are to bring the best firstfruits of your land into the house of Adonai your God.
“You are not to boil a young animal in its mother’s milk.
(vi) 20 “I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you on the way and bring you to the place I have prepared. 21 Pay attention to him, listen to what he says and do not rebel against him; because he will not forgive any wrongdoing of yours, since my name resides in him. 22 But if you listen to what he says and do everything I tell you, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and a foe to your foes. 23 When my angel goes ahead of you and brings you to the Emori, Hitti, P’rizi, Kena‘ani, Hivi and Y’vusi, I will make an end of them. 24 You are not to worship their gods, serve them or follow their practices; rather, you are to demolish them completely and smash their standing-stones to pieces.
25 “You are to serve Adonai your God; and he will bless your food and water. I will take sickness away from among you. (vii) 26 In your land your women will not miscarry or be barren, and you will live out the full span of your lives. 27 I will send terror of me ahead of you, throwing into confusion all the people to whom you come; and I will make all your enemies turn their backs on you. 28 I will send hornets ahead of you to drive out the Hivi, Kena‘ani and Hitti from before you. 29 I will not drive them out from before you in one year, which would cause the land to become desolate and the wild animals too many for you. 30 I will drive them out from before you gradually, until you have grown in number and can take possession of the land. 31 I will set your boundaries from the Sea of Suf to the sea of the P’lishtim and from the desert to the [Euphrates] River, for I will hand the inhabitants of the land over to you, and you will drive them out from before you. 32 You are not to make a covenant with them or with their gods. 33 They are not to live in your land; otherwise they will make you sin against me by ensnaring you to serve their gods.”
24 To Moshe [Adonai] said, “Come up to Adonai — you, Aharon, Nadav, Avihu, and seventy of the leaders of Isra’el. Prostrate yourselves at a distance, 2 while Moshe alone approaches Adonai — the others are not to approach, and the people are not to go up with him.” 3 Moshe came and told the people everything Adonai had said, including all the rulings. The people answered with one voice: “We will obey every word Adonai has spoken.”
4 Moshe wrote down all the words of Adonai. He rose early in the morning, built an altar at the base of the mountain and set upright twelve large stones to represent the twelve tribes of Isra’el. 5 He sent the young men of the people of Isra’el to offer burnt offerings and sacrifice peace offerings of oxen to Adonai. 6 Moshe took half of the blood and put it in basins; the other half of the blood he splashed against the altar. 7 Then he took the book of the covenant and read it aloud, so that the people could hear; and they responded, “Everything that Adonai has spoken, we will do and obey.” 8 Moshe took the blood, sprinkled it on the people and said, “This is the blood of the covenant which Adonai has made with you in accordance with all these words.”
9 Moshe, Aharon, Nadav, Avihu and seventy of the leaders went up; 10 and they saw the God of Isra’el. Under his feet was something like a sapphire stone pavement as clear as the sky itself. 11 He did not reach out his hand against these notables of Isra’el; on the contrary, they saw God, even as they were eating and drinking.
12 Adonai said to Moshe, “Come up to me on the mountain, and stay there. I will give you the stone tablets with the Torah and the mitzvot I have written on them, so that you can teach them.” 13 Moshe got up, also Y’hoshua his assistant; and Moshe went up onto the mountain of God. 14 To the leaders he said, “Stay here for us, until we come back to you. See, Aharon and Hur are with you; whoever has a problem should turn to them.” (S: Maftir) 15 Moshe went up onto the mountain, and the cloud covered the mountain. (A: Maftir) 16 The glory of Adonai stayed on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days. On the seventh day he called to Moshe out of the cloud. 17 To the people of Isra’el the glory of Adonai looked like a raging fire on the top of the mountain. 18 Moshe entered the cloud and went up on the mountain; he was on the mountain forty days and nights.
Jeremiah 34:8–22, 33:25–26;
8 This word came to Yirmeyahu from Adonai after King Tzidkiyahu had made a covenant with all the people in Yerushalayim to emancipate them. 9 Everyone who had a male or female slave who was Hebrew was to let him go free; none was to keep as his slave a fellow Jew. 10 All the leaders and all the people listened who had entered into the covenant, wherein everyone was to free his male and female slaves and not keep them in bondage any longer. They listened, and they let them go. 11 But afterwards, they changed their minds; they made the male and female slaves, whom they had freed, return; and they brought them back into subjection as slaves. 12 Therefore this word of Adonai came to Yirmeyahu from Adonai: 13 “Here is what Adonai the God of Isra’el says: ‘When I brought your ancestors out of the land of Egypt, where they lived as slaves, I made this covenant with them: 14 “At the end of seven years every one of you is to set free his brother Hebrew who has been sold to you and has served you six years. You are to let him go free from you.” But your ancestors did not listen to me or pay any attention. 15 Now you repented, you did what is right from my viewpoint when each of you proclaimed freedom to his fellow; and you made a covenant before me in the house bearing my name. 16 But then you changed your minds. You profaned my name when each of you took back his male and female slaves, whom you had set free to live as they wished, and brought them back into subjection as your slaves.’ 17 Therefore here is what Adonai says: ‘You did not heed me and proclaim freedom, each to his brother and each to his neighbor; so now I proclaim for you a freedom,’ says Adonai, ‘for sword, plague and famine. I will make you an object of horror to all the kingdoms on earth. 18 As for the men who violated my covenant by not living up to the conditions of the covenant which they made in my presence when they cut the calf in two and passed between its parts — 19 the leaders of Y’hudah, the leaders of Yerushalayim, the officials, the cohanim and all the people of the land who passed between the parts of the calf; 20 I will hand them over to their enemies, hand them over to those who seek their lives; and their corpses will become food for birds in the air and wild animals. 21 Tzidkiyahu king of Y’hudah and his officials I will hand over to their enemies, to those who seek their lives and to the army of the king of Bavel, which has withdrawn. 22 I will give the order,’ says Adonai, ‘and cause them to return to this city. They will attack it, capture it and burn it to the ground; and I will make the cities of Y’hudah desolate and uninhabited.’”
3 So if you were raised along with the Messiah, then seek the things above, where the Messiah is sitting at the right hand of God.[a] 2 Focus your minds on the things above, not on things here on earth. 3 For you have died, and your life is hidden with the Messiah in God. 4 When the Messiah, who is our life, appears, then you too will appear with him in glory!
5 Therefore, put to death the earthly parts of your nature — sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed (which is a form of idolatry); 6 for it is because of these things that God’s anger is coming on those who disobey him. 7 True enough, you used to practice these things in the life you once lived; 8 but now, put them all away — anger, exasperation, meanness, slander and obscene talk. 9 Never lie to one another; because you have stripped away the old self, with its ways, 10 and have put on the new self, which is continually being renewed in fuller and fuller knowledge, closer and closer to the image of its Creator. 11 The new self allows no room for discriminating between Gentile and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, foreigner, savage, slave, free man; on the contrary, in all, the Messiah is everything.
12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with feelings of compassion and with kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with one another; if anyone has a complaint against someone else, forgive him. Indeed, just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you must forgive.
14 Above all these, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together perfectly; 15 and let the shalom which comes from the Messiah be your heart’s decision-maker, for this is why you were called to be part of a single Body.
And be thankful — 16 let the Word of the Messiah, in all its richness, live in you, as you teach and counsel each other in all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude to God in your hearts. 17 That is, everything you do or say, do in the name of the Lord Yeshua, giving thanks through him to God the Father.
18 Wives, subject yourselves to your husbands, as is appropriate in the Lord.
19 Husbands, love your wives and don’t treat them harshly.
20 Children, obey your parents in everything; for this pleases the Lord.
21 Fathers, don’t irritate your children and make them resentful, or they will become discouraged.
22 Slaves, obey your human masters in everything, not serving only when they are watching you, to win their favor, but single-heartedly, fearing the Lord. 23 Whatever work you do, put yourself into it, as those who are serving not merely other people, but the Lord. 24 Remember that as your reward, you will receive the inheritance from the Lord. You are slaving for the Lord, for the Messiah. 25 Don’t worry — whoever is doing wrong will be paid in kind for his wrong, and there is no favoritism shown.
1 Adonai said to Moshe, 12 “When you take a census of the people of Isra’el and register them, each, upon registration, is to pay a ransom for his life to Adonai, to avoid any breakout of plague among them during the time of the census. 13 Everyone subject to the census is to pay as an offering to Adonai half a shekel [one-fifth of an ounce of silver]— by the standard of the sanctuary shekel (a shekel equals twenty gerahs). 14 Everyone over twenty years of age who is subject to the census is to give this offering to Adonai — 15 the rich is not to give more or the poor less than the half-shekel when giving Adonai’s offering to atone for your lives. 16 You are to take the atonement money from the people of Isra’el and use it for the service in the tent of meeting, so that it will be a reminder of the people of Isra’el before Adonai to atone for your lives.”
2 Kings 12:1–17
12 (11:21) Y’ho’ash was seven years old when he began his reign. 2 (1) It was in the seventh year of Yehu that Y’ho’ash began to rule, and he ruled forty years in Yerushalayim. His mother’s name was Tzivyah, from Be’er-Sheva. 3 (2) Y’ho’ash did what was right from Adonai’s perspective throughout the lifetime of Y’hoyada the cohen, who instructed him. 4 (3) Nevertheless the high places were not taken away; the people still sacrificed and presented offerings on the high places.
5 (4) Y’ho’ash said to the cohanim, “All the funds for sacred purposes which are brought to the house of Adonai — the half-shekel tax, the taxes on persons in a man’s household, and all the offerings anyone voluntarily brings to the house of Adonai — 6 (5) the cohanim are to receive from whoever personally makes contributions to them; and they are to use these funds to repair the damaged parts of the house, wherever damage is found. 7 (6) But twenty-three years into the reign of King Y’ho’ash, the cohanim had still not repaired the damaged places in the house. 8 (7) So King Y’ho’ash summoned Y’hoyada the cohen and the other cohanim and said to them, “Why aren’t you repairing the damaged places in the house? Therefore, you are no longer to take money from those who contribute it personally to you; you must hand it over to be used for repairing the damage in the house.” 9 (8) The cohanim agreed not to receive money from the people, and they would no longer be responsible for repairing the damage to the house.
10 (9) Then Y’hoyada the cohen took a chest, drilled a hole in its lid and set it by the altar, on the right, as one enters the house of Adonai; and the cohanim in charge of the entry put in it all the money brought into the house of Adonai. 11 (10) When they saw that there was a large amount of money in the chest, the king’s secretary and the cohen hagadol would come up, count the money found in the house of Adonai and put it in bags. 12 (11) Then they would give the weighed-out money to those supervising the work in the house of Adonai, who would use it to pay the carpenters and construction-workers doing the work in the house of Adonai, 13 (12) on masons, stone-workers, timber, worked stone and everything else needed for repairing the damaged places in the house of Adonai. 14 (13) But none of the money brought into the house of Adonai was used to make silver cups, snuffers, bowls, trumpets or other articles of gold or silver for the house of Adonai; 15 (14) because they gave the money to those doing the work, thus restricting its use to repairing the damage in the house of Adonai. 16 (15) Moreover, they did not require an accounting from the supervisors given the money to pay the workers, because they dealt honestly. 17 (16) Money from guilt offerings and sin offerings, however, was not brought into the house of Adonai; it went to the cohanim.
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: Mishpatim
Prophecy 81 Oh Yisrael, I, YAHUVEH, Rebuke YOU!
Oh Yisrael, Oh Yisrael, that which is a apple in MY eye that has a worm in it, I rebuke you! I, YAHUVEH, the one that Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob worships and they obeyed,
I, YAHUVEH, REBUKE YOU!
You say why are we forced to give up the land our forefathers gave us? I ask you this question: Are you walking in Torah? Are you living in Torah? As your forefathers did?
Oh, Yisrael, just as surely as MY Son YAHUSHUA had a Judas betray HIM for 30 pieces of silver, so too you have a Judas, the one who hands you the so-called road map of peace that will only end in your destruction, to prepare the way for that which is called the antichrist, the anti-Messiah.
People say you are the Holy Land, but I, YAHUVEH, say there is no holiness. So few of a remnant I have that actually walk in Torah and live in Torah. You have a Pharisee spirit. And I tell you this: although it is not I dividing your land, but I will allow the enemy to do so for your disobedience.
I, YAHUVEH, chose your land oh Yisrael, to give birth to the only MESSIAH of this world. That is how much I, YAHUVEH, love you and favor you oh Yisrael. YAHUSHUA’s Blood will keep your Yisrael from being totally destroyed and keep it from being wiped off the face of the map even though even the Name of YAHUSHUA the majority of Jews despise that Name and deny HIS Deity. YAHUSHUA’s veins and arteries are spread out across Yisrael. YAHUSHUA spurted out HIS Lifeblood that penetrated the ground at Calvary and spiritually now reaches the 4 corners of this earth. I, YAHUVEH, chose you oh Yisrael, of all the nations of the world to do this. For whosoever can believe and will receive MY Son YAHUSHUA as the only Holy Blood Sacrifice for the remission of sins. YAHUSHUA is the only Intercessor before I, YAHUVEH.
YAHUSHUA is the only Holy Blood atonement I will accept. For those who refuse this shed Blood to wash away their sins, those who refuse YAHUSHUA’s sinless Blood as HE was executed in a sinner’s place, you will be judged by Moshe (Moses) who will have no mercy on you when you say YAHUSHUA is not worthy to be called the Son of YAHUVEH and to be your Mashiach and you thought being called a Jew and following Torah is enough to save your soul. Foolish humans, do you not know there is no one that is perfect that walked this earth except MY Son YAHUSHUA. Until Yisrael shouts ‘Hosanna’ to YAHUSHUA once again and HE rules as King of Kings, there will be no true peace until Yisrael admits YAHUSHUA is I, YAHUVEH’s only Begotten Son, birthed from a virgin Jewish handmaiden, totally sinless. And YAHUSHUA is all HE prophesied and all that was prophesied by the prophets of old foretelling HIS coming.
Prophecy 79 I, YAHUVEH, Say People You Are Missing The Point!
If you are not obeying ME now and if you are compromising now with the Day I have set aside as MY Holy Sabbath-Day—and if you do not think it is important to obey each and every one of MY Commandments—what makes you think you will obey during the soon coming Great Tribulation?
Why is it more comfortable to listen to man’s doctrines, when they twist MY Words to conform to man’s sinful image? Although MY SON YAHUSHUA is your REST, HE is not your Day-of-Rest. MY SON YAHUSHUA is NOT a day and MY 4th Commandment clearly states to keep Holy, MY Sabbath Day of Rest.
What part of this don’t you understand? Yes, rest in YAHUSHUA. For HIS yoke is easy and HIS burden is light (Mt 11:30), but this has nothing to do with the Sabbath Day. Did not YAHUSHUA keep the Sabbath?
Did I not send MY SON, YAHUSHUA, to be an example unto you? Do you even know why I set aside a Day of Rest (Gn 2:1-3)? Do you not know this Sabbath Day is to be a blessing unto you and not a curse?
MY Fourth Commandment clearly states to keep Holy MY Sabbath Day of Rest. Does not the Law I wrote with MY Own Fiery Finger on a tablet of stone (Ex 31:18; Dt 9:10) and gave to Moses on Mt. Sinai say, “Honor MY Sabbath-Day and keep it Holy” (Ex 20)?
Again I ask you, since when is MY SON, YAHUSHUA, a day? Ask yourself, why would satan change the day of Sabbath to Sunday if it were not going to be used for his purpose in the Great Tribulation?1 Do not listen to those who preach otherwise. Herein lies the victory.
It is written in MY Holy Word that I, YAHUVEH, cannot lie.
If you obey ME, there are Blessings & Victory as stated in Deuteronomy 28. There are curses to those that disobey. Read and study what is written in Exodus 31:12-17. The true Sabbath will be the sign between, I, YAHUVEH & MY people, and it will be used to identify who truly worships and who will serve ME in the Great Tribulation.
Torah Portion: Remember The Sabbath and The Appointed Times
Prophecy 65 “Get Ready! Get Ready! Get Ready! Be Prepared For The Evil Days Are Upon You!”
Those that insist on celebrating [heathen] holidays and that are not Torah observant to recognize, to esteem the true Holy Days, will find out they will feel MY wrath in a mighty way even those who are called by MY SON’S Name because this truth has set them free (that they are to be Holy as I am Holy), but instead they insist on participating, and are anticipating, and reciprocating these pagan holidays. Then they shall not feel MY presence, they shall not hear MY Spirit speak to them, they will find they are no longer in MY ark where I set MY Children apart.
Oh MY Daughter I know these words you did not want to speak, for those you once called friend you will call enemy, but know this you have done it MY way and not yours. I use this ministry to prepare the Bride of YAHUSHUA. I told you once I am telling you again; I am not coming for a disobedient Bride. MY SON is not coming for a disobedient Bride. Either you’re MY Children or you’re not. Lightness and darkness must depart, I am taking MY dividing sword and I am separating that which I have never joined together. But I do it for the safety of MY Children, those that truly seek to follow YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA, those that are filled with MY RUACH ha KODESH.
MY Children, the churches teach a lie for only the most Holy are called MY Bride! There are requirements to be YAHUSHUA’s Bride and one of them is, all though you are in this world you are not to behave like this world.
Prophecy 80 Pray That I, YAHUVEH, Send Your Enemies To The Winepress Of MY Wrath!
Who is the Bride of YAHUSHUA?” I tell you this; your actions speak louder than your words. The Bride of YAHUSHUA worships, loves and adores I and MY Son YAHUSHUA (loving us above all others,) desiring our will in their lives and praying how to serve US and please US, how to put a smile on the face of YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA. They refuse to compromise; they refuse to believe satan’s lies. The Bride of YAHUSHUA strives to obey MY laws as outlined in the Holy Biblical Scriptures. The Bride of YAHUSHUA lives Holy lives because they are Holy. They embrace the Jewishness of YAHUSHUA as they keep and honor MY Sabbath and count the Holy Feasts as a blessing, and observe them and acknowledge YAHUSHUA MESSIAH their Bridegroom in all of them.
From this day forward I command the Bride of YAHUSHUA, MY Esther of new, to observe the Feast of Purim and make merry. Celebrate and praise ME for delivering Esther, for without her, how would the blood line of YAHUSHUA come forth? There would not have been any Hebrews on the face of the earth left if Haman had succeeded. What Haman attempted to do once will be tried again in the same way. Bounties will be placed on all Jews and believers in YAHUSHUA. That same Spirit came again through the Spirit of Hitler, so it will be done again, when the son of perdition comes, who is the son of satan. Bride of YAHUSHUA, study the book of Esther.
Prophecy 79 I, YAHUVEH, Say People You Are Missing The Point!
I, YAHUVEH, say, “People you are missing the point!”
You listen to these men now and you sit in your churches believing the lies that Sunday is the Sabbath or it makes no difference which day is the Sabbath. You believe the lies that both preachers and some rabbis teach that there is no greater Anointing Power in the Hebrew SACRED NAMES of YAHUVEH & YAHUSHUA and the RUACH HA KODESH, that any name will do.
The preachers tell you it is not important to learn the Jewishness of the MESSIAH. They say if you’re not a Jew it does not apply. These lawless preachers teach you that you are a gentile and you don’t have to obey the laws given to the Children of Israel. Did you forget that when you accepted MY SON, YAHUSHUA, as MESSIAH you became one with HIM (Ro 11:16-21)?
You wonder, ‘Where is the Anointing Power of the First Church with signs, wonders and miracles?’ You cry out, “Where is the manifestation of the miracles as in the Days of Old?”
Get back and do what the First Church did and you will see these miracles once again. To those who do not know better, I say you are held accountable for only what you have known. Now you are held accountable, as well as to teach others these Truths. But to those who know right and do wrong, you shall pay with your soul.
I, YAHUVEH, say, “People you are missing the point!”
You obey these evil spiritual leaders now that make excuses for sin. What makes you think in the Great Tribulation you will not do the same again—with the son of satan?
I told you through the Prophecies that I have released through Elisabeth [Elisheva] that MY SON YAHUSHUA is coming back for HIS Bride on a Rosh HaShanah and it shall be on a Shabbat [Sabbath]. If you are not being taught how to observe MY Shabbat & MY Holy Days, and to learn OUR SACRED NAMES & MY TORAH to obey, how will you know how to honor ME & MY SON, YAHUSHUA, as I have decreed? How will you know which day—without studying and showing yourself approved —that I, YAHUVEH, have set aside to be MY Shabbat? How can you be ready when YAHUSHUA comes again?
I, YAHUVEH, say, “People you are missing the point!”
If you do not honor and observe MY Holy Feasts, how will you know what Rosh HaShanah is and when it is? Then, when you are left behind you will ask, “Why?” So I speak forth out of MY Ringmaiden and tell you ahead of time that I, YAHUVEH, prophesy through this Ringmaiden who is part of MY SON YAHUSHUA’S Bride.
The Bride of YAHUSHUA shall not only be transformed into their glorified bodies—and be filled with such an ANOINTING AS THOUGH YAHUSHUA HIMSELF WERE WALKING THROUGH THEM & WITH THEM—HE shall imbue them with such an ANOINTING that NOTHING shall be impossible unto them!
And for 40 days MY SON YAHUSHUA’S Bride shall warn, “Do not take the mark of the beast.” They shall go to those I call the Guests and those whose names are written in the LAMB’S Book of Life and they will say to them, “Do not be disobedient. Do not compromise, although it may mean your earthly life.”
Torah Portion: Shabbat Shekalim
Prophecy 13 Tell Them MY Child, Tell Them For ME!
he same treasure is laid up for whoever supports, encourages, and prays for these apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, teachers those that set the captives free for MY Glory. They will also receive the same rewards stored up for them in Heaven.
I admonish you, sow your seed only into ministries that preach and teach the entire truth, even if it offends. Pray for these ministers, support them. I am not speaking of man made licenses this world calls spiritual credentials. Many have these and have huge churches also, yet they use them to lead the people astray. Only Almighty God YAHUVEH ordains, not man.
For I know the Spirit of that man or woman, I know if they are fit to be a spiritual leader. Once again man is playing god. Many are called and few are chosen by ME. So do not let satan deceive. You will be held accountable if you are giving tithes and offering money to a church you know is not preaching the true gospel of YAHUSHUA. If that pastor is teaching error and leading others astray and you are helping him with your tithes and offerings you will feel convicted even as you read this, and you will know I am not pleased. For in doing so you have helped the enemy to cause MY Children defeat.
I am pleased when you give tithes and offerings to those who daily lay his or her life down for ME. Daily is a servant to the people and ME. Most of the time they are abused, rejected, hated for standing for holiness, and speaking forth MY messages.
So many of the ministers are carrying the financial burden alone. Where are MY Children I have blessed? Why do you sow seed in hard dry infertile soil? Why aren’t you praying and asking where to plant your holy tithes and offerings? Yes, I have exposed Satan’s counterfeit who rob ME by stealing holy tithes and offerings and only use them for their own purposes. The wolves in sheep’s clothing are being exposed, and they will stand before Almighty God YAHUVEH who they robbed from on Judgment Day! Woe is unto these ministers.
Pray I will show you the genuine to satan’s counterfeit. I had a greedy disciple, a son of hell, yet that does not mean all the disciples were traitors does it? So it is true again. You have asked, “Why aren’t I blessed for my giving ten percent”? I will tell you, because you’re sowing seed into hard dry soil that is teaching error and leading others astray into the very bowels of hell. REPENT TODAY! If you’re MY child and you’re not giving tithes and offerings then you’re not obeying ME. Then why do you say you love ME when you’re not obeying ME? REPENT TODAY! So I can bless you like the loaves and fishes miracles. So your prayers will get quick answers.
Prophecy 51 Clarion Call Of The 144,000, Fear Not MY Beloved Little Ones, I AM Raising Up A Standard Against The Evil Ones!”
When the enemy comes in like a flood, I will raise up a standard against him. Because you have not yet seen it, do not fear that I have forgotten MY promise to do so. MY beloved fear not, again I, YAHUVEH, say fear not MY beloved little ones. I have not raised you up for this hour and endued you with the knowledge that I, YAHUVEH, have given you to forsake you now. You are one of MY anointed hidden ones. Now is the time to arise and come forth to aid your brothers and sisters in YAHUSHUA. I have given you lands, properties, ships, islands, houses and finances. I have secret millionaires; yes, even multi-millionaires and you have not been much use to MY Kingdom for you have stayed in the world’s eyes and yet tried to walk MY fine line. You have loved and served ME in secret, for you said to yourself, “What can I do for the Kingdom of YAHUVEH? How can I promote the Gospel of YAHUSHUA?” So you stay quiet and hidden, yet pray for someone else to do what you feel you cannot do. Soon, it will be too late to help MY Apostles and Prophets. Do you not yet understand the price even the one I am speaking through must pay, the attacks that must be fended off, not only in the physical realm, but the spiritual realm? Are you helping or are you being a hindrance?
I, YAHUVEH, have hidden you for such a time as this. Pray how to use your talents, gifts, wisdom, homes, real estate, finances, and spiritual gifts. All wisdom that does not go against MY Scriptures you are to use to help and barter with, at a time when there will be no other way to buy or sell or help others. Your wisdom, revelations, healing knowledge, and the education given to you will benefit others for such a time, and you will know when to use it, and where to help, and who to help. MY Apostles and Prophets need you to hide them for such a time as this, from the evil ones that seek their destruction, so no one can say they weren’t warned before judgment falls.
“These are the ordinances mishpatim הַמִּשְׁפָּטִים that you are to set before them.” (Exodus 21:1)
In last week’s portion of Scripture, Israel received the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai.
This week, YAH gives specific legislation—laws called mishpatim, which means judgments. These are intended to guide the daily lives of His holy nation in justice and righteousness.
Once We Were Slaves
“When you acquire a bondsman, for six years he shall work and in the seventh year he shall go free.” (Exodus 21:2)
Since the Israelites had just been released from slavery, the first of YAH’s mishpatim deals with servants and slaves.
The seventh year of freedom represents the Messianic age — the thousand years when we will rule and reign from Jerusalem with Messiah, who will sit on the Throne of His earthly father David.
Several verses later in this passage, the painful experiences of the Israelites in Egypt are highlighted again, this time to elicit empathy for the foreigner. YAH commands the Israelites that foreigners be treated with kindness and respect.
“You shall neither mistreat a stranger nor oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.” (Exodus 22:21)
In total, Parasha Mishpatim contains 53 mitzvot /commands: 23 imperative commandments and 30 prohibitions.
This series of laws, specify penalties for various violent crimes, such as murder, kidnapping, and assault. Pre-meditated murder, kidnapping, and striking or even cursing a parent all carry the death penalty.
“And he who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death.” (Exodus 21:17)
Laws were also given regarding how to make reparation for assault and injuries caused by animals, as well as damage to crops or livestock. They prohibit seduction of virgins, the practice of sorcery, bestiality, idolatry, and mistreating the disadvantaged of society.
Infractions of these laws often carry the severest of penalties — death by stoning — since YAH wanted to keep peace and order within the camp.
But it is more than that. YAH has genuine concern for justice and the well-being of the individual.
For instance, if a widow or fatherless child is to cry out to ELOHIM because of someone’s ill treatment of them, YAH promises He will pour out His fierce wrath upon their oppressor and kill them so that their wives would be widows and their children fatherless (Exodus 22:22–24).
Remember the Sabbath and the Appointed Times
This week’s Parasha also reveals the law of the Sabbath, which is more than a Sabbath rest every seventh day.
Every seven years, the land is to enjoy a Sabbath rest called the Shemitah. Israel ended its last seventh year of letting the land lie fallow in September 2015.
“Six years you shall sow your land and gather in its produce, but the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie fallow, that the poor of your people may eat; and what they leave, the beasts of the field may eat.” (Exodus 23:10–11)
As well, the three pilgrimage festivals are mentioned as a time when all adult Jewish males are to appear before the ELOHIM: Pesach /Passover, Shavuot /Pentecost, and Sukkot /Feast of Tabernacles.
“Three times in the year all your males shall appear before YAHUVEH your GOD.” (Exodus 23:17)
In this Parasha, Moses reads before all the people the Book of the Covenant that YAHUVEH has given Israel. After the people commit to keeping YAH’s law, Moses sprinkles blood upon the altar and on the people as well, since all covenants are formally ratified and are usually sealed with blood.
“Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read in the hearing of the people. And they said, ‘All that YAHUVEH has said we will do, and be obedient.’ And Moses took the blood, sprinkled it on the people, and said, ‘This is the blood of the covenant which YAHUVEH has made with you according to all these words.’” (Exodus 24:7–8)
Likewise, the New Covenant was sealed with the blood of Messiah, YAHUSHUA, the Lamb of YAHUVEH. At the Passover meal with His disciples, YAHUSHUA held up the cup of redemption and said, “This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood.” (Luke 22:20)
The most righteous of all men, YAHUSHUA HaMashiach, became the final atonement for all generations who accept His sacrifice on their behalf.
“I, YAHUVEH, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.”
This week begins the first of four Parshiot leading up to the festivals of Purim and Passover . That’s right! These two holidays are just around the corner!
Because this week’s Shabbat is Shabbat Shekalim /שבת שקלים / Sabbath of Shekels, a special reading called a maftir is added. Maftir shares the same root as Haftarah — FTR, which means to conclude.
This week’s special reading concludes the Torah portion and is taken from Exodus 30:11–16, which pertains to the half-shekel tax for the Tabernacle.
Shekalim is the plural form of the Hebrew word span style=”color: rgb
(158, 15, 15);”>shekel, which was the currency of ancient Israel. It is also used today in the modern state of Israel.
Every Jewish adult male /20 years and older was required to give half a Biblical shekel toward the building and maintenance of the Tabernacle.
Nationally, rich and poor alike set aside personal interests and are united by contributing equally to the goal of building the Tabernacle.
In remembrance of the half shekel, at this time of year, some Jewish people contribute to institutes of Jewish learning, and in our case to the ministry that you connected to.
Shabbat Shekalim perhaps is also a good reminder of the importance of financially contributing to the upkeep and operating costs of those who are doing the work of ELOHIM.
“All who cross over, those twenty years old or more, are to give an offering ELOHIM. The rich are not to give more than a half shekel and the poor are not to give less when you make the offering to ELOHIM to atone for your lives. Receive the atonement money from the Israelites and use it for the service of the tent of meeting. It will be a memorial for the Israelites before ELOHIM, making atonement for your lives.” (Exodus 30:14–16)
During Temple times, the half-shekel tax, called machatzit hashekel, was due yearly on the first of Nissan.
The collection of this tax was significant and practical. Since Passover begins on Nissan 14, these extra funds allowed for the purchase of cattle for the communal sacrifices.
The call for the tax was issued to the people at the start of the previous month, Adar, giving people time to prepare their payment before the annual pilgrimage to Jerusalem for Passover.
Funds also contributed to the upkeep of the Temple and its vessels, the roads and pathways to the Temple, wages, and the maintenance of the ritual baths called mikvot for the customary pre-Passover purification. If a mikvah were not properly maintained, then it would not be proper and could not be used for ritual purposes.
Shabbat Shekalim, then, is a wonderful time to renew our commitment to be faithful in our support of those places doing the work of the HOLY TRINITY ABBA YAHUVEH,YAHUSHUA, & IMMAYAH the sweet RUACH HAKODESH and where we are being spiritually fed.
“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)
