Torah Reading

Leviticus 6:1–8:36; 

 

6 (8) YAHUVEH said to Moshe, 2 (9) “Give this order to Aharon and his sons: ‘This is the law for the burnt offering [a]: it is what goes up [b] on its firewood upon the altar all night long, until morning; in this way the fire of the altar will be kept burning. 3 (10) When the fire has consumed the burnt offering on the altar, the cohen, having put on his linen garment and covered himself with his linen shorts, is to remove the ashes and put them beside the altar. 4 (11) Then he is to remove those garments and put on others, before carrying the ashes outside the camp to a clean place. 5 (12) In this way, the fire on the altar will be kept burning and not be allowed to go out. Each morning, the cohen is to kindle wood on it, arrange the burnt offering and make the fat of the peace offerings go up in smoke. 6 (13) Fire is to be kept burning on the altar continually; it is not to go out.

7 (14) “‘This is the law for the grain offering: the sons of Aharon are to offer it before YAHUVEH in front of the altar. 8 (15) He is to take from the grain offering a handful of its fine flour, some of its olive oil and all of the frankincense which is on the grain offering; and he is to make this reminder portion of it go up in smoke on the altar as a fragrant aroma for YAHUVEH. 9 (16) The rest of it Aharon and his sons are to eat; it is to be eaten without leaven in a holy place — they are to eat it in the courtyard of the tent of meeting. 10 (17) It is not to be baked with leaven. I have given it as their portion of my offerings made by fire; like the sin offering and the guilt offering, it is especially holy. 11 (18) Every male descendant of Aharon may eat from it; it is his share of the offerings for YAHUVEH made by fire forever through all your generations. Whatever touches those offerings will become holy.’”

(ii) 12 (19) YAHUVEH said to Moshe, 13 (20) “This is the offering for YAHUVEH that Aharon and his sons are to offer on the day he is anointed: two quarts of fine flour, half of it in the morning and half in the evening, as a grain offering from then on. 14 (21) It is to be well mixed with olive oil and fried on a griddle; then bring it in, break it in pieces and offer the grain offering as a fragrant aroma for YAHUVEH. 15 (22) The anointed cohen who will take Aharon’s place from among his descendants will offer it; it is a perpetual obligation. It must be entirely made to go up in smoke for YAHUVEH; 16 (23) every grain offering of the cohen is to be entirely made to go up in smoke — it is not to be eaten.”

17 (24) YAHUVEH said to Moshe, 18 (25) “Tell Aharon and his sons, ‘This is the law for the sin offering: the sin offering is to be slaughtered before YAHUVEH in the place where the burnt offering is slaughtered; it is especially holy. 19 (26) The cohen who offers it for sin is to eat it — it is to be eaten in a holy place, in the courtyard of the tent of meeting. 20 (27) Whatever touches its flesh will become holy; if any of its blood splashes on any item of clothing, you are to wash it in a holy place. 21 (28) The clay pot in which it is cooked must be broken; if it is cooked in a bronze pot, it must be scoured and rinsed in water. 22 (29) Any male from a family of cohanim may eat the sin offering; it is especially holy. 23 (30) But no sin offering which has had any of its blood brought into the tent of meeting to make atonement in the Holy Place is to be eaten; it is to be burned up completely.

7 “‘This is the law for the guilt offering: it is especially holy. 2 They are to slaughter the guilt offering in the place where they slaughter the burnt offering, and its blood is to be splashed against all sides of the altar. 3 He is to offer all its fat — the fat tail, the fat covering the inner organs, 4 the two kidneys, the fat on them near the flanks, and the covering of the liver, which he will remove with the kidneys. 5 The cohen will make them go up in smoke on the altar as an offering made by fire to YAHUVEH ; it is a guilt offering. 6 Every male from a family of cohanim may eat it; it is to be eaten in a holy place; it is especially holy. 7 The guilt offering is like the sin offering; the same law governs them — it will belong to the cohen who uses it to make atonement.

8 “‘The cohen who offers someone’s burnt offering will possess the hide of the burnt offering which he has offered.

9 “‘Every grain offering baked in the oven, cooked in a pot or fried on a griddle will belong to the cohen who offers it. 10 But every grain offering which is mixed with olive oil or is dry will belong to all the sons of Aharon equally.

(iii) 11 “‘This is the law for sacrificing peace offerings offered to YAHUVEH: 12 If a person offers it for giving thanks, he is to offer it with the thanksgiving sacrifice of unleavened cakes mixed with olive oil, matzah spread with olive oil, and cakes made of fine flour mixed with olive oil and fried. 13 With cakes of leavened bread he is to present his offering together with the sacrifice of his peace offerings for giving thanks. 14 From each kind of offering he is to present one as a gift for YAHUVEH; it will belong to the cohen who splashes the blood of the peace offerings against the altar. 15 The meat of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for giving thanks is to be eaten on the day of his offering; he is not to leave any of it until morning. 16 But if the sacrifice connected with his offering is for a vow or is a voluntary offering, then, while it is to be eaten on the day he offers his sacrifice, what remains of it may be eaten the next day. 17 However, what remains of the meat of the sacrifice on the third day is to be burned up completely. 18 If any of the meat of the sacrifice of his peace offerings is eaten on the third day, the sacrifice will neither be accepted nor credited to the person offering it; rather, it will have become a disgusting thing, and whoever eats it will bear the consequences of his wrongdoing. 19 Meat which touches something unclean is not to be eaten but burned up completely. As for the meat, everyone who is clean may eat it; 20 but a person in a state of uncleanness who eats any meat from the sacrifice of peace offerings made to YAHUVEH will be cut off from his people. 21 Anyone who touches something unclean — whether the uncleanness be from a person, from an unclean animal or from some other unclean detestable thing — and then eats the meat from the sacrifice of peace offerings for YAHUVEH, that person will be cut off from his people.’”

22 YAHUVEH said to Moshe, 23 “Say to the people of Isra’el, ‘You are not to eat the fat of bulls, sheep or goats. 24 The fat of animals that die of themselves or are killed by wild animals may be used for any other purpose, but under no circumstances are you to eat it. 25 For whoever eats the fat of animals of the kind used in presenting an offering made by fire to YAHUVEH will be cut off from his people. 26 You are not to eat any kind of blood, whether from birds or animals, in any of your homes. 27 Whoever eats any blood will be cut off from his people.’”

28 YAHUVEH said to Moshe, 29 “Say to the people of Isra’el, ‘A person who offers his sacrifice of peace offerings to YAHUVEH is to bring part of his sacrifice of peace offerings as his offering for YAHUVEH. 30 He is to bring with his own hands the offerings for YAHUVEH made by fire — he is to bring the breast with its fat. The breast is to be waved as a wave offering before YAHUVEH. 31 The cohen is to make the fat go up in smoke on the altar, but the breast will belong to Aharon and his descendants. 32 You are to give the right thigh from your sacrifices of peace offerings to the cohen as a contribution. 33 The descendant of Aharon who offers the blood of the peace offerings is to have the right thigh as his share. 34 For the breast that has been waved and the thigh that has been contributed I have taken from the people of Isra’el out of their sacrifices of peace offerings and given them to Aharon the cohen and to his descendants as their share forever from the people of Isra’el.’”

35 On the day when Aharon and his sons were presented to serve YAHUVEH in the office of cohen, this portion was set aside for him and his descendants from the offerings for YAHUVEH made by fire. 36 On the day they were anointed, YAHUVEH ordered that this be given to them by the people of Isra’el. It is their share forever through all their generations.

37 This is the law for the burnt offering, the grain offering, the sin offering, the guilt offering, the consecration offering and the sacrifice of peace offerings 38 which YAHUVEH ordered Moshe on Mount Sinai on the day he ordered the people of Isra’el to present their offerings to YAHUVEH, in the Sinai Desert.

8 (iv) YAHUVEH said to Moshe, 2 “Take Aharon and his sons with him, the garments, the anointing oil, the bull for the sin offering, the two rams and the basket of matzah; 3 and assemble the entire community at the entrance to the tent of meeting.” 4 Moshe did as YAHUVEH ordered him, and the community was assembled at the entrance to the tent of meeting. 5 Moshe said to the community, “This is what YAHUVEH has ordered to be done.”

6 Moshe brought Aharon and his sons, washed them with water, 7 put the tunic on him, wrapped the sash around him, clothed him with the robe, put the ritual vest on him, wrapped around him the decorated belt and fastened the vest to him with it. 8 He put the breastplate on him, and on the breastplate he put the urim and tumim. 9 He set the turban on his head, and on the front of the turban he affixed the gold plate, the holy ornament, as YAHUVEH had ordered Moshe.

10 Then Moshe took the anointing oil and anointed the tabernacle and everything in it, thus consecrating them. 11 He sprinkled some on the altar seven times, anointing the altar with all its utensils and the basin with its base, to consecrate them. 12 He poured some of the anointing oil on Aharon’s head and anointed him, to consecrate him. 13 Moshe brought Aharon’s sons, clothed them with tunics, wrapped sashes on them and put headgear on them, as YAHUVEH had ordered Moshe.

(v) 14 Then the young bull for the sin offering was brought, and Aharon and his sons laid their hands on the head of the bull for the sin offering. 15 After it had been slaughtered, Moshe took the blood and put it on the horns of the altar all the way around with his finger, thus purifying the altar. The remaining blood he poured out at the base of the altar and consecrated it, to make atonement for it. 16 Moshe took all the fat on the inner organs, the covering of the liver, the two kidneys and their fat, and made it go up in smoke on the altar. 17 But the bull, its hide, its flesh and its dung were taken outside the camp and burned up completely, as YAHUVEH had ordered Moshe.

18 Next, the ram for the burnt offering was presented. Aharon and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram; 19 and after it had been slaughtered, Moshe splashed the blood on all sides of the altar. 20 When the ram had been cut in pieces, Moshe made the head, the pieces and the fat go up in smoke. 21 When the inner organs and the lower parts of the legs had been washed with water, Moshe made the entire ram go up in smoke on the altar; it was a burnt offering giving a fragrant aroma, an offering made by fire to YAHUVEH — as YAHUVEH had ordered Moshe.

(vi) 22 Then the other ram was presented, the ram of consecration; Aharon and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram. 23 After it had been slaughtered, Moshe took some of its blood and put it on the tip of Aharon’s right ear, on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot. 24 Next Aharon’s sons were brought, and Moshe put some of the blood on the tips of their right ears, on the thumbs of their right hands, and on the big toes of their right feet; then Moshe splashed the blood on all sides of the altar. 25 He took the fat, the fat tail, all the fat covering the inner organs, the covering of the liver, the two kidneys with their fat, and the right thigh. 26 From the basket of matzah that was before YAHUVEH he took one piece of matzah, one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer, and placed them on the fat and on the right thigh. 27 Then he put it all in Aharon’s hands and in the hands of his sons and waved them as a wave offering before YAHUVEH. 28 Moshe took them out of their hands and made them go up in smoke on the altar on top of the burnt offering; they were a consecration offering giving a fragrant aroma; an offering made by fire to YAHUVEH. 29 Moshe took the breast and waved it as a wave offering before YAHUVEH; it was Moshe’s portion of the ram of consecration — as YAHUVEH had ordered Moshe.

(vii) 30 Moshe took some of the anointing oil and some of the blood which was on the altar and sprinkled it on Aharon and his clothing, and on his sons with him and their clothing, and consecrated Aharon and his clothing together with his sons and their clothing.

31 Moshe said to Aharon and his sons, “Boil the meat at the door of the tent of meeting; and eat it there with the bread that is in the basket of consecration, as I ordered when I said that Aharon and his sons are to eat it. 32 Whatever is left over of the meat and bread you are to burn up completely. (Maftir) 33 You are not to go out from the entrance to the tent of meeting for seven days, until the days of your consecration are over; since YAHUVEH will be consecrating you for seven days. 34 He ordered done what has been done today, in order to make atonement for you. 35 You are to remain at the entrance to the tent of meeting day and night for seven days, thereby obeying what YAHUVEH ordered done, so that you may not die. For this is what I was ordered.” 36 Aharon and his sons did all the things which YAHUVEH ordered through Moshe.

 

Prophetic Reading

Malachi 3:4–3:24; 

4
Then the offering of Y’hudah and Yerushalayim
will be pleasing to YAHUVEH,
as it was in the days of old,
as in years gone by.
5
“Then I will approach you for judgment;
and I will be quick to witness
against sorcerers, adulterers and perjurers;
against those who take advantage
of wage-earners, widows and orphans;
against those who rob the foreigner of his rights
and don’t fear me,”
says YAHUVEH-Tzva’ot.

6
“But because I, YAHUVEH, do not change,
you sons of Ya‘akov will not be destroyed.
7
Since the days of your forefathers
you have turned from my laws and have not kept them.
Return to me, and I will return to you,”
says YAHUVEH-Tzva’ot.
“But you ask, ‘In respect to what
are we supposed to return?’
8
Can a person rob God?
Yet you rob me.
But you ask, ‘How have we robbed you?’
In tenths and voluntary contributions.
9
A curse is on you, on your whole nation,
because you rob me.
10
Bring the whole tenth into the storehouse,
so that there will be food in my house,
and put me to the test,”
says YAHUVEH-Tzva’ot.
“See if I won’t open for you
the floodgates of heaven
and pour out for you a blessing
far beyond your needs.
11
For your sakes I will forbid the devourer
to destroy the yield from your soil;
and your vine will not lose its fruit
before harvest-time,”
says YAHUVEH-Tzva’ot.
12
“All nations will call you happy,
for you will be a land of delights,”
says YAHUVEH-Tzva’ot.

13
“You have spoken strongly against me,” says YAHUVEH.
“Yet you say, ‘How have we spoken against you?’
14
By saying, ‘There is no point in serving God.
What good is it to obey his orders
or to walk about as mourners
before YAHUVEH-Tzva’ot?
15
We consider the arrogant happy;
also evildoers prosper;
they put God to the test;
nevertheless, they escape.’”
16
Then those who feared YAHUVEH spoke together;
and YAHUVEH listened and heard.
A record book was written in his presence
for those who feared YAHUVEH
and had respect for his name.
17
“They will be mine,” says YAHUVEH-Tzva’ot,
“on the day when I compose my own special treasure.
I will spare them as a man spares
his own son who serves him.
18
Then once again you will see the difference
between the righteous and the wicked,
between the person who serves God
and one that doesn’t serve him.
19
(4:1) For the day is coming, burning like a furnace,
when all the proud and evildoers will be stubble;
the day that is coming will set them ablaze,”
says YAHUVEH-Tzva’ot,
“and leave them neither root nor branch.
20
(4:2) But to you who fear my name,
the sun of righteousness will rise
with healing in its wings;
and you will break out leaping,
like calves released from the stall.
21
(4:3) You will trample the wicked,
they will be ashes under the soles of your feet
on the day when I take action,”
says YAHUVEH-Tzva’ot.
22
(4:4) “Remember the Torah of Moshe my servant,
which I enjoined on him at Horev,
laws and rulings for all Isra’el.
23
(4:5) Look, I will send to you
Eliyahu the prophet
before the coming of the great
and terrible Day of YAHUVEH.
24
(4:6) He will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children
and the hearts of the children to their fathers;
otherwise I will come and strike the land
with complete destruction.”

[Look, I will send to you
Eliyahu the prophet
before the coming of the great
and terrible Day of YAHUVEH.]

1 Corinthians 15:1–58

15 Now, brothers, I must remind you of the Good News which I proclaimed to you, and which you received, and on which you have taken your stand, 2 and by which you are being saved — provided you keep holding fast to the message I proclaimed to you. For if you don’t, your trust will have been in vain. 3 For among the first things I passed on to you was what I also received, namely this: the Messiah died for our sins, in accordance with what the Tanakh says; 4 and he was buried; and he was raised on the third day, in accordance with what the Tanakh says; 5 and he was seen by Kefa, then by the Twelve; 6 and afterwards he was seen by more than five hundred brothers at one time, the majority of whom are still alive, though some have died. 7 Later he was seen by Ya‘akov, then by all the emissaries; 8 and last of all he was seen by me, even though I was born at the wrong time. 9 For I am the least of all the emissaries, unfit to be called an emissary, because I persecuted the Messianic Community of YAH. 10 But by YAH’s grace I am what I am, and his grace towards me was not in vain; on the contrary, I have worked harder than all of them, although it was not I but the grace of YAH with me. 11 Anyhow, whether I or they, this is what we proclaim, and this is what you believed.

12 But if it has been proclaimed that the Messiah has been raised from the dead, how is it that some of you are saying there is no such thing as a resurrection of the dead? 13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then the Messiah has not been raised; 14 and if the Messiah has not been raised, then what we have proclaimed is in vain; also your trust is in vain; 15 furthermore, we are shown up as false witnesses for YAH in having testified that YAH raised up the Messiah, whom he did not raise if it is true that the dead are not raised. 16 For if the dead are not raised, then the Messiah has not been raised either; 17 and if the Messiah has not been raised, your trust is useless, and you are still in your sins. 18 Also, if this is the case, those who died in union with the Messiah are lost. 19 If it is only for this life that we have put our hope in the Messiah, we are more pitiable than anyone.

20 But the fact is that the Messiah has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have died. 21 For since death came through a man, also the resurrection of the dead has come through a man. 22 For just as in connection with Adam all die, so in connection with the Messiah all will be made alive. 23 But each in his own order: the Messiah is the firstfruits; then those who belong to the Messiah, at the time of his coming; 24 then the culmination, when he hands over the Kingdom to YAH the Father, after having put an end to every rulership, yes, to every authority and power. 25 For he has to rule until he puts all his enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy to be done away with will be death, 27 for “He put everything in subjection under his feet.”[a] But when it says that “everything” has been subjected, obviously the word does not include YAH, who is himself the one subjecting everything to the Messiah. 28 Now when everything has been subjected to the Son, then he will subject himself to YAH, who subjected everything to him; so that YAH may be everything in everyone.

29 Were it otherwise, what would the people accomplish who are immersed on behalf of the dead? If the dead are not actually raised, why are people immersed for them? 30 For that matter, we ourselves — why do we keep facing danger hour by hour? 31 Brothers, by the right to be proud which the Messiah YAHUSHUA our Lord gives me, I solemnly tell you that I die every day. 32 If my fighting with “wild beasts” in Ephesus was done merely on a human basis, what do I gain by it? If dead people are not raised, we might as well live by the saying, “Let’s eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!”[b] 33 Don’t be fooled. “Bad company ruins good character.” 34 Come to your senses! Live righteously and stop sinning! There are some people who lack knowledge of YAH — I say this to your shame.

35 But someone will ask, “In what manner are the dead raised? What sort of body do they have?” 36 Stupid! When you sow a seed, it doesn’t come alive unless it first dies. 37 Also, what you sow is not the body that will be, but a bare seed of, say, wheat or something else; 38 but YAH gives it the body he intended for it; and to each kind of seed he gives its own body. 39 Not all living matter is the same living matter; on the contrary, there is one kind for human beings, another kind of living matter for animals, another for birds and another for fish. 40 Further, there are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies; but the beauty of heavenly bodies is one thing, while the beauty of earthly bodies is something else. 41 The sun has one kind of beauty, the moon another, the stars yet another; indeed, each star has its own individual kind of beauty.

42 So it is with the resurrection of the dead. When the body is “sown,” it decays; when it is raised, it cannot decay. 43 When sown, it is without dignity; when raised, it will be beautiful. When sown, it is weak; when raised, it will be strong. 44 When sown, it is an ordinary human body; when raised, it will be a body controlled by the Spirit. If there is an ordinary human body, there is also a body controlled by the Spirit. 45 In fact, the Tanakh says so: Adam, the first man, became a living human being;[c] but the last “Adam” has become a life-giving Spirit. 46 Note, however, that the body from the Spirit did not come first, but the ordinary human one; the one from the Spirit comes afterwards. 47 The first man is from the earth, made of dust; the second man is from heaven. 48 People born of dust are like the man of dust, and people born from heaven are like the man from heaven; 49 and just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, so also we will bear the image of the man from heaven.

50 Let me say this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot share in the Kingdom of YAH, nor can something that decays share in what does not decay. 51 Look, I will tell you a secret — not all of us will die! But we will all be changed! 52 It will take but a moment, the blink of an eye, at the final shofar. For the shofar will sound, and the dead will be raised to live forever, and we too will be changed. 53 For this material which can decay must be clothed with imperishability, this which is mortal must be clothed with immortality. 54 When what decays puts on imperishability and what is mortal puts on immortality, then this passage in the Tanakh will be fulfilled:

“Death is swallowed up in victory.[d]

55
“Death, where is your victory?
Death, where is your sting?”[e]

56 The sting of death is sin; and sin draws its power from the Torah; 57 but thanks be to YAH, who gives us the victory through our Lord YAHUSHUA the Messiah!

58 So, my dear brothers, stand firm and immovable, always doing the Lord’s work as vigorously as you can, knowing that united with the Lord your efforts are not in vain.

 

AmightyWind Prophecies

 

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: Peace Offering

Prophecy 136 The HOLY TRINITY NEEDS COMFORT ALSO

So teach them! Teach them even on Shavu’ot. Sing to ME. Sing to the HOLY TRINITY! Do not just enter into prayers and ask questions but sing, praise! Enter into MY Heavenly Courts before MY Throne with reverence, love with worship in the NAME OF YAHUSHUA (Ps 100:4)! Never think you can enter into MY PRESENCE in your own name (Heb 4:14-16). For only will I listen in the NAME OF YAHUSHUA, WHOM some call ‘JESUS CHRIST’ (Acts 4:12). But I’m asking you, learn the HEBREW NAME now before it is counterfeited in the Great Tribulation.

Hebrews 13:15 “Through YAHUSHUA, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise–the fruit of lips that openly profess HIS name.”

Psalm 100:4 “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into HIS courts with praise: be thankful unto HIM, and bless HIS Name.”

Prophecy 7 Hold On Tight To The Hem of MY Garment

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.

2 Chronicles 20:22 “And when they began to sing and to praise, YAHUVEH set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.

Torah Portion: Sin Offering

Prophecy 95 YAHUSHUA Says “Pick Up Your Weapons! I AM Alive!”

Now you’re getting it MY Children! Now you’re understanding why I said that this is a weapon like no other weapon when you do communion unto ME. The words you have spoken Elisabeth (Elisheva) are not your own words for MY Words are higher than anything you could ever think. Every time you do communion, every time you become one with ME, I do give you MY ears. I do give you MY eyes. I speak forth out of your mouth.

How many I see and they no longer fear. They stay in their sin. They take the communion cup with sinful lips. I am faithful to forgive. But never do this with an unrepentent heart for you’re only drinking damnation. You are only drinking of curses. Come to ME with a repentent heart. Ask ME to forgive you of your sins. I am faithful and I am merciful and just one drop of MY Blood, just one drop of MY Blood can save all of humanity if they had just received ME. Just one drop of MY Blood. And look how much more I gave. This is what I want you to tell them. This is the new Message I give you. This is the Message that is meant to be before the world. This is the only weapon you have. Tell them, “Thus saith YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH,” as you see the weapons pointed at you in so many different directions, lift up the only weapon I have given you.

Only through the Blood of YAHUSHUA your MASHIACH, can anyone be saved! There is no name on the face of this world, on the face of this universe, can anyone be saved but through MY Blood and through the price I paid with MY Body, as I laid MY life down.

YAHUSHUA willingly gave HIS Life on the cross No man took MY life! No man could murder ME! But I willingly gave it. It is I that said, “It is finished.” It is I that commended MY Spirit to leave. But you do not have a clue what I did during this time. You do not have a clue for though yet MY Body died, I did arise. And I made an open show to satan, the once called Lucifer and I let him know and I let all of hell know, I am alive! And I took the keys of hell and death from his hands! And he cannot send anyone to hell unless it was part of MY plan, unless their name is not found in the Lamb’s Book of Life before the foundation of the world.

 

And I cannot lose one. I do not lose one. All, all, all whose names are found written in the LAMB’S Book of Life, before the foundation of this earth, all, all, all, all shall be in Heaven. The ones whose names are blotted out! As they betrayed ME in Heaven, they betray ME on earth. But even that name was blotted out before the foundation of this earth. As they betrayed ME in Heaven they betray ME on earth. All of you work out your own salvation with fear and trembling for your soul knows where you will go. You’re only repeating what’s already been done.

Prophecy 102 YAHUSHUA Says “It Is Only A Matter Of Time!”

See, I was only that slain LAMB once. I let the enemy strike MY face. But that was only once! I wore the crown of thorns! I took the humiliation of this earth! But that was only once… I hung on that Cross! I was beaten beyond recognition! I thirsted for you! I thirsted for your unrighteousness! I hungered for you! I was mocked and I was scorned! This (Sukkot) is the time of MY birth on this earth! And how few even acknowledge it! They’ll take a heathen holiday dedicated to another heathen (King Nimrod) straight from the pit of hell and they gave ME that birthday? But on this time of Sukkot, how few honor ME? How few honor the price I paid?…

Oh, but I have MY faithful Bride. I paid the price, but it was only once! It was only once I had to die! And no man took MY life! It was I and only I,YAHUSHUA, that said it is finished! And it was MY time! I did not die in man’s time! I did not arise in man’s time! I arose in YAHUVEH’S time!

Torah Portion: The Prophet Elijah

Prophecy 76 Beloved Bride Of YAHUSHUA,  Arise And Prepare Yourself, For Your BRIDEGROOM DOTH COME!

Verily I say unto you, I give you strong spiritual meat to eat. It is not meant for the Spiritually Weak! Elijah of Old was but a shadow of the catching away of the Bride of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH. Elijah of Old knew what mission he needed to finish and knew he would not die at that time. Elijah of Old knew what day, hour and minute YAHUVEH would send the Chariot of Fire to catch him away to Heaven. And Elijah of Old knew in advance who would be honored to behold this with their own eyes and the man’s name was Elisha. Elijah of Old was taken to Heaven by Heavenly transportation and so shall also the Bride of YAHUSHUA be caught away when I,YAHUSHUA, personally come for you MY beloved Bride. (2 Kings 2:1-14)

Re-read all the Prophecies and you will see for many years I have called Elisabeth [Elisheva] MY Elijah of New [in Hebrew, Eliyahu]. Yes, her legal maiden name is Elijah [in Hebrew, Eliyahu], but that is not the reason I have done this. She only recently learned the reason and it is more than sending her to the widows of Zarephath to test them. And they know it not for their famine has not yet come, it is not just this reason as stated in many of the prophecies I have spoken through her. I audibly spoke to her on Passover, April 5 (one day after her birthday) and told her, awakening her with the words she did not understand and only through this message will understand more fully “You are MY Ringmaiden.”

Verily I say unto her and you with spiritual ears to hear and listen. I, YAHUSHUA call her MY Elijah of New [in Hebrew, Eliyahu] and reveal these secret revelations given to her straight from Heaven to be a blessing unto her as well as the true Bride of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH. Just as Elijah of Old knew when to expect YAHUVEH’s horse drawn Chariot of Fire to catch him away to Heaven and he knew the exact time and day and was prepared and warned Elisha in advance to watch him. Elijah of Old is the shadow of what will happen with the Bride, so why would I do any less for the Bride of YAHUSHUA?

Again, I say unto you, Elijah of Old was a shadow of MY Bride being caught away, and MY Bride will be endued with a new outpouring of an anointing while on this earth as a standard against the evil that will come against you like none other given before. All of MY Bride will know this message is true, for some have known this would happen and have been waiting for this announcement to come to the 4 corners of the earth where I have hid MY Bride.

Malachi 4:5 “Behold, I will send you Elijah the Prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of ELOHIM.”

Torah Portion: The Hope of Moses and Elijah’s Return

Prophecy 127 Red Sea Crossing for AmightyWind Ministries: Elisheva Eliyahu’s Exodus & Ezra Arises as Apostle

This is the Passover I give you this day! As you cross the Red Sea! But she doesn’t cross it alone! I raise up “YAHUSHUA’S demon stompers.” And I raise up the one—that holds that Rod—that has an Anointing as unto Moses.

And as Elijah and a Moses—Eliyahu [& Moshe]—walk hand in hand, leading the way, you are going to see this Ministry have a rebirth this very day. Elisheva & E[zra] suffered the birth pains. Their body—literally felt the pain. And Ezra wrestled with the devil and demons, as the devil tried to chase him away!

Oh but this is a day of victory! This is the day you give ME glory! Behold I do a new thing! Behold I do a new thing!

The time is so short! The time is so short! The time is so short! There’ll be no more delay. For both of those hands are on that Rod! There’s no distance in the SPIRIT—I gave them signs and wonders—as they physically felt it! MY Ezra takes this seriously! He takes prayer seriously! Elisheva takes prayer seriously!

“YAHUSHUA’S demon stompers,” you must take prayer seriously! No sin must be allowed. I speak to the “YAHUSHUA’S demon stompers.” I warn you now. No sin. No sin. No sin as you walk in this new beginning. I’m not saying you’re going to be perfect! But you know what I mean: no wilful, rebellious sin. No chinks in the armor of the Breastplate of Righteousness!

Malachi 4:4-5 “Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the Prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the ELOHIM.”

 

Prophecy 132 Israel I Love You, I Rebuke You!

The world turns on you-even that that was the only one you could call your friend, the United States of America-betray you again and again! You are not the terrorists and yet those who are the terrorists accuse you.

 

I, YAHUSHUA, weep for you!

You heard the Prophecy [63] given in 2002 by MY Prophet Elijah of New, but now oh Israel in 2016 the spirit of Eliyahu and the spirit of Moshe join together! This is to show you the fullness of the Anointing.

 

And from henceforth, to all those who receive YAHUSHUA, I YAHUSHUA’S BLOOD spilled at Calvary for the remission of your sins so your prayers can be heard to your ABBA YAHUVEH, I tell you this: study not just the Prophets of Old but study the Prophets6-Prophecies spoken forth from Elisheva Eliyahu.

 

For there is now more Anointing when [these two] Apostles, Prophets join together-not just Ministries but their hearts and their souls join together-it’s symbolic too: I, YAHUSHUA, joining with you!

Oh Israel!

 

I do not want to have to do what I have to do! Come to ME! Oh Bride of Israel! Raise up now! Come to ME! I long for you! Come to ME! For I’ve waited so long-with every Torah portion-“seek and ye shall find” (Jer 29:13-14; Mt 7:7; Lk 11:5), a Prophecy given through this Elisheva Eliyahu.

 

Teaching

Shabbat Shalom.

 

Welcome to this week’s reading of the Torah portion called Tzav /Command!.

 

Because this is the last Shabbat before Passover, which begins next Friday evening, March 30, it is called Shabbat HaGadol /Great Shabbat, and a special Haftarah portion from Malachi is read that speaks of the coming of Messiah.

“YAHUVEH said to Moses:  ‘Command / Tzav צַו Aaron and his sons, saying: This is the law of the burnt-offering.’”

(Leviticus 6:8–9)

 

 

Last week, in Parasha Vayikra, YAH spoke to Moses from the Tent of Meeting, giving him the laws of the offerings /korbanot קָרְבָּנוֹת, detailing the circumstances under which they would be offered in order to draw close to ELOHIM.

 

This week’s Parasha is entitled Tzav, which means to order or command.

 

What was YAHUVEH instructing Moses to command Aaron and his sons?

 

He was commanding the priesthood (lineage of Aaron) to observe their rights and duties as the kohanim /priests, who in Parasha Tzav are commanded to always keep the fire on the altar burning and never to extinguish it.  (Leviticus 6:13)

 

For this reason, when we light our Shabbat candles on Friday night to usher in the Sabbath, it is customary not to blow out the flame but to let the candles burn down completely.

 

And although the fire no longer burns on the Temple altar, and our Shabbat candles burn until they go out, may our hearts always burn brightly with the fire that YAHUVEH Himself lit there, never to be extinguished by the cares of this world.

 

 

In Tzav, the priests are given the procedure for offering the obligatory sacrifices on behalf of all the nation of Israel.

 

As these offerings are read in the synagogue, however, few will connect those offerings to the death and resurrection of YAHUSHUA, which  will be remembered on Passover, one week from today.

 

Nevertheless, those offerings are essential to our understanding of what YAHUSHUA accomplished on the tree.  They comprise the following five categories: the burnt offering, the meal offering, the peace offering, the sin offering, and the trespass / guilt / restitution offering.

 

 

  1.  Korban Olah /קרבנ עלה – Burnt Offerings

 

“Let him offer a male without blemish; he shall offer it of his own free will at the door of the tabernacle of meeting before YAHUVEH.”  (Leviticus 1:3)

 

The Korban Olah is a voluntary offering that is to be completely burnt.  Nothing is to be eaten.

 

To offer it, the worshiper brings a male animal without blemish to the door of the Tabernacle.  A male or female dove or pigeon can be offered if a person does not have the means to offer a bullock, ram or goat.

 

The Israelite then places his hands upon the head of the animal offering with the knowledge that this innocent animal is about to pay the price for his sin.

 

After the worshiper asks ELOHIM for forgiveness, the animal is slaughtered.

 

 

  1.  Minchah /מִנְחָה – Meal Offerings

 

Tzav also describes the duties for the Minchah /present or gift or the Meal Offering in which the people of Israel also give grain offerings.

 

The priests burn a fistful /Kometz of this offering on the altar and eat the rest.

 

Often the choicest flour is mixed with oil and salt to make a cake, but it cannot contain leaven or honey.

 

Leaven is associated with sin, pride, hypocrisy, false teaching, and worldliness (1 Corinthians 5:6–8, Luke 12:1, Galatians 5:9, Mark 8:15).

 

Leaven and salt represent two entirely different actions:  salt preserves, while leaven radically changes substances.

 

Although honey has a pleasant smell when it boils, it smells bitter and unpleasant when it burns.  The offering is to be sweet smelling, as the incense offered with it.

 

 

While this Parasha seems to specify grain, elsewhere we see also vegetables and animals given for a Minchah

(Genesis 4:3–4; 1 Samuel 2:15–17).

 

Both Cain and Abel offered a Minchah and not a Korban Olah.  Cain and his offering were not accepted and Able and his offering were.

 

Abel offered a fat portion of the firstfruit of his flock; however, the Bible does not indicate that Cain brought the firstfruit of his produce.  It just says that he brought the fruit of the ground.

 

We can infer from this that Cain did not offer the Minchah in faith or with a right attitude (Hebrews 11:1–2, 4; 1 John 3:12).

 

Cain became embittered when ELOHIM rejected both him and his offering; however, ELOHIM graciously told him that if he would do well, he would be accepted.

 

Cain rejected ELOHIM advice and things went from bad to worse.  He did not repent, choosing instead a path of rebellion that resulted in him killing his brother.

 

“If you do what is right, will you not be accepted?  But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.”  (Genesis 4:7)

 

 

 

  1.  Shelamim /שְׁלָמִים – Peace Offering

 

The Shelamim /which is related to the word shalom is a voluntary offering that expresses a sense of wellbeing, praise, and thanksgiving, such as when Jacob and Laban made a treaty with one another.  (Genesis 31:54)

 

This offering is similar to the burnt offering; however, while male or female animals were acceptable, birds were not.  The animals are not fully burned as are the burnt offerings; only specified portions of fat and internal organs are placed on the altar.

 

A portion of the Shelamim, without the blood, is to be eaten by the priests and even by the one offering up the sacrifice.

 

 

 

  1.  Chatat /חַטָּאת – Sin Offering

 

Chatat are offered for unintentional sins (Leviticus 4:1–4), sins due to carelessness or inadvertence.

 

The status of the offender dictates the class of chatat.  If the offender is the high priest or the whole community of Israel, it is considered a more serious transgression because it impacts the welfare of the entire nation.  A young bull is required, and it is burned outside the camp.

 

If the offender is a leader, such as the king, a male goat is to be brought.

 

If it is an individual, a female sheep or goat is to be brought.  For these latter two, the priests are to eat the sacrifices within the Tabernacle grounds.

 

The chatat is also required for three sins of omission:

  • withholding testimony;
  • becoming impure due to an interval of forgetfulness; and
  • violating an oath unintentionally.

 

  1.  Asham /אָשָׁם – Guilt Offering

 

Leviticus 6:5–7 details the guilt offering of a ram for the following:

  • unintentionally using sanctuary property for personal use;
  • forestalling punishment for one’s sin when one is uncertain one has sinned, or for unknown sin; and
  • lying under oath or defrauding a person in regards to a found article, a deposit, loan, etc.

For an Asham, it does not suffice to simply offer a sacrifice.  The offender has to make restitution plus add an additional fifth of the value.

 

In fulfillment of Scripture, YAHUSHUA was not only pierced for our sins, HE became our Asham, paying the legal penalty of our guilt to YAHUVEH for those sins.

 

As a result of paying the wages of our sin, YAHUSHUA makes restitution for our souls:

 

“And ELOHIM wished to crush HIM, HE made him ill; if his soul makes itself restitution [asham], he shall see children, he shall prolong his days, and YAH’s purpose shall prosper in his hand.”  (Isaiah 53:10,)

 

Even though YAHUSHUA made restitution back to YAHUVEH for our sinfulness, confession and restitution is still our moral responsibility to one another when we sin against our fellow man.

YAHUSHUA taught that we are to seek out those we have wronged and get right with them before coming to the altar with any offering.  (Matthew 5:23–26; Leviticus 5:16).

Feeling guilty when we sin is healthy; it’s a sign that we must make amends. But to keep feeling guilty after restitution has been made and the sacrifice has been paid is not healthy.

 

We can receive YAHUSHUA’s sacrifice as our own once we acknowledge our guilt and make amends.

 

While the guilt offerings on the altar of the Temple only covered sin, YAHUSHUA’s death and resurrection actually removed sin for all time.

 

As Yochanan (John) said when he saw YAHUSHUA coming to him at the Jordan River, “Behold the Lamb of GOD who takes away the sins of the world.”  (John 1:29)

 

We can say, then, that YAHUSHUA’s offering was both chatat (sin) and asham (restitution).

 

“Messiah was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and He will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for Him.”  (Hebrews 9:28)

 

 

 

YAHUSHUA Is Prepared for Burial

 

“Later, Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilate for the body of YAHUSHUA. … With Pilate’s permission, he came and took the body away.”  (John 19:38)

 

 

Believers also read how Joseph (Yosef) of Arimathea and Nicodemus (Nakdimon) came to Pilate to ask for YAHUSHUA’s body.

 

Because Jewish burial customarily takes place within 24 hours, in keeping with Jewish practice, they sought to bury YAHUSHUA right away.

 

They also prepared YAHUSHUA’s body for burial with tahara, ritual purification.  In this ritual, the body is cleansed, and then dried and dressed in takhrikhim, a simple white shroud

(Mark 15:46–47).

 

“Nicodemus brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds.  Taking YAHUSHUA’s body, the two of them wrapped it, with the spices, in strips of linen.  This was in accordance with Jewish burial customs.”  (John 19:39–40)

 

 

When Yosef and Nakdimon performed the mitzvah (commandment) of preparing YAHUSHUA’s body for burial, they were performing the duties of the Khevra Kadisha — a burial organization that ensures the body is correctly prepared for burial and protected from desecration.

 

By wrapping YAHUSHUA in linen, they were practicing the custom of takhrikhim, providing the proper burial garment for the deceased.

 

Since the Sabbath was quickly approaching, there was insufficient time to complete the preparations before the holy day of the Passover began; therefore, YAHUSHUA was placed in a sealed tomb until the close of the High Sabbath day.

 

Thus, YAHUSHUA was buried in a rich man’s tomb in fulfillment of the Messianic prophecy in Isaiah 53:

 

“HE was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in His death, though HE had done no violence, nor was any deceit in HIS mouth.”  (Isaiah 53:9)

 

 

However, more important than how YAHUSHUA was buried is that He rose from the dead and gained victory over death.  HalleluYAH!

 

Both spiritual and physical death has been defeated through YAHUSHUA’s victory, as Rabbi Saul of Tarsus /Paul said:

 

“But Messiah has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits [bikkurim] of those who have fallen asleep.  For since death came through a man [Adam], the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man.  For as in Adam all die, so in Messiah all will be made alive.”  (1 Corinthians 15:20–22)

 

This is the Good News that we want to share with all Jewish people, so that they can be sure of their place in the olam habah /the world to come.

 

 

If Death Is the Result of Sin, How Could YAHUSHUA Die Sinless?

 

“The Messiah, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.”

(1 Corinthians 5:7)

 

Since YAHUSHUA’s death, burial, and resurrection occurred in a Hebraic context, examining Jewish customs surrounding death, burial, mourning, and resurrection can further our understanding of HIS Resurrection on the 3rd day.

 

Creation, including mankind, was not intended to suffer death.

 

The first book of the Torah, Bereisheet /Genesis, reveals death as the judgment of ELOHIM upon mankind for their spiritual fall in the Garden of Eden.

 

After Adam and Chava (Eve) failed their test of obedience, ELOHIM said:

 

“By the sweat of your nose you will eat your food until you return to the ground [adamah], since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.”  (Genesis 3:19)

 

 

The name Adam was taken from the word for ground or earth — adamah, since the man (Adam) was taken from the ground (adamah).

 

This Hebrew wordplay reveals a spiritual truth: sin has brought physical death to all of mankind and, with it, a return to the earth (adamah).

 

Thus ends a person’s physical existence on earth, with the spirit separating from the body.

 

YAHUSHUA’s death, however, was not due to HIS own sin, since HE was sinless.  HE died when HE took upon HIMSELF the sins of the world and all the guilt that comes with it.

 

“But you know that He appeared so that He might take away our sins.  And in Him is no sin.”  (1 John 3:5)

 

 

Thankfully, YAHUSHUA’s death wasn’t the final word.

 

Just as HE promised, death couldn’t hold Him

(John 2:18–22; Matthew 26:31–32).

 

“He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.”  (Romans 4:25)

 

The sting of death is sin (1 Corinthians 15:56), and in YAHUSHUA, death has lost its sting!

 

Therefore, we can live confidently without any fear of death or dying, as we know that when we pass from this life, our lives continue eternally with our loving Father in Heaven.

 

 

“Let us continually offer to YAH a sacrifice of praise — the fruit of lips that openly profess His name.”  (Hebrews 13:15)

 

 

Shabbat Shalom from AMIGHTYWIND!

 

 

 

Additional Teaching

 

The Prophet

 

When Elijah heard the earthquake, fire, and wind, “he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave.”  (1 Kings 19:13)

 

 

 

 

 

You wouldn’t know it, to look at him.

 

His hair wild, his eyes filled with fear, his soul crushed by the loss of hope. Depression shrouded him like a thick dark cloak.  This was the one, people referred to as The Prophet.

 

This was the man who shut up the skies and stopped the rain for over three years.

 

This man called a nation to choose which God they would serve and even called down fire from heaven.

 

 

This man was now hiding in a cave in the desert.  This man was Elijah the Prophet.

 

It’s hard to imagine that a threat from the wife of a disobedient king would have this prophet of YAH running for his life.

 

How could he be the hero of little children’s stories? Let alone be raised to a place of honor as the herald of the Messiah himself?

 

“See, I will send you the prophet Elijah before that great and dreadful day of ELOHIM comes. He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse.”

(Micah 4:5–6)

 

It can happen to each of us.  As men and women of YAH, we can lose sight of the vision and callings that YAH has given to us.  We get depressed, stumble, and even quit.

 

While others might leave us in despair, YAH doesn’t.

 

He cares for us, comforts us, strengthens us, raises us up without shame, and invites us to continue in His mission, without skipping a beat!

 

Let’s see how YAH not only redeemed this man from his despair, but also chose him to help redeem HIS Chosen People.

 

 

 

With the infinite resources of YAHUVEH of Hosts / YAHUVEH Shabaot on his side, Elijah stood up to 450 prophets of Baal, the god of wicked Queen Jezebel, 400 prophets of the god Asherah, and killed them all (1 Kings 18:19, 40).

 

Jezebel and her army are now seeking to kill him.  Elijah thinks no one is left to carry on the work of ELOHIM; he runs for his life to the wilderness region of Mount Horeb and hides in a cave.

 

There at the mountain where ELOHIM gave Israel the Torah and came into covenant with them, as a husband with a bride, ELOHIM speaks to Elijah in his desert experience.

 

But before we look at what YAH said to him, let’s pause to consider how the body of Messiah the assembly   might respond if Elijah were alive today.

 

After all, you may know of some Elijah’s, too.

 

 

Would church leaders send an army of congregants with the gifts of mercy, hospitality, and encouragement to go after this Elijah and restore him back into service for ELOHIM?

 

Or would they leave him 100 miles away in his cave and look for another prophet in town?

 

Sadly, too often, the choice is the latter.

 

We tend to see a setback, an episode of despair, or even a sin in a person’s life as a sign that he or she is no longer worthy to serve YAH or that HE has given up on HIS servant.

 

After all, Elijah didn’t merely take a few weeks off, he cried out, “I’ve had enough, ELOHIM.  Take my life!”  (1 kings 19:4)

 

Let’s now see how ELOHIM handles Elijah’s condition.

 

 

Lying under a broom tree in the wilderness wishing to die, ELOHIM sends an angel to comfort and re-energize Elijah’s body with heavenly cake and water (1 Kings 19:5–8).

 

After journeying forty days to Horeb in the depths of the inhospitable desert, ELOHIM speaks, not in anger through the earthquake, wind, and fire, but in a quiet shout, asking him about his distress:  “What are you doing here, Elijah?”  (1 Kings 19:11–13)

 

Hearing the despair in Elijah’s heart, ELOHIM gives him a temporary reprieve by choosing another man, Elisha, to carry on his work.

 

But that doesn’t mean YAH is done with Elijah.

 

 

 

Like Elijah, we sometimes get “burned out” from stress, fear, and our own short-sightedness, hiding under the covers of our bed for hours, even days months and sometimes years.

 

When others take our place, we might feel that we no longer have any value to ELOHIM, especially when other Believers tell us so.

 

If we believe that lie, the days under the covers can turn into years of uselessness.

 

Yet, if we are willing to be restored and remain in HIS service, YAH is never finished with us.  HE clearly wasn’t finished with Elijah, either.

 

Elijah left the cave to fulfill more assignments for ELOHIM.  In one of his final prophetic acts, YAH sent Elijah to warn Jezebel’s husband, King Ahab, of certain destruction, and Elijah obeyed.

 

Ahab “tore his clothes, put on sackcloth and fasted.  He lay in sackcloth and went around meekly.” Because of his humility upon hearing the words of ELOHIM prophet Elijah, destruction did not befall Ahab.  (1 Kings 21:17–29)

 

 

Elijah could have done much more impressive feats on earth, but ELOHIM took him home early, in a chariot no less.

 

Yet that still wasn’t the end of his service for the kingdom.  Elijah stood with Moses on Mount Tabor near the Sea of Galilee, as YAHUSHUA revealed the manifest glory of YAHUVEH within HIMSELF on the Mount of Transfiguration!

 

And ELOHIM still wasn’t done with Elijah!

 

The Book of Malachi, it prophesies about Moses and Elijah the two witnesses   receiving the grand honor of accompanying the Messiah when HE comes to reign as King in His Messianic Kingdom on earth.

 

“Surely the day is coming; it will burn like a furnace.  All the arrogant and every evildoer will be stubble, and the day that is coming will set them on fire,” says the ELOHIM Almighty.  “Not a root or a branch will be left to them.  But for you who revere my Name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays.  And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves.  Then you will trample on the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I act,” says ELOHIM Almighty.

 

“Remember the Torah of my servant Moses, the decrees and laws I gave him at Horeb for all Israel.”

 

“See, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before that great and dreadful day of ELOHIM comes.  He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents; or else I will come and strike the land with total destruction.”  (Malachi 4)

 

 

And the return of Elijah, this once downcast, discouraged, and depressed prophet whom ELOHIM redeemed out of the caves of Horeb is an integral part of that Messianic hope.

 

“May he soon come to us, with the Messiah son of David,”

the Jewish People sing.  (lyrics from Eliyahu HaNavi)

 

 

 

The Hope of Moses and Elijah’s Return

 

As the Biblical Festival of Passover starts next Friday night, Jewish families, Messianic Believers, and even some Christians will retell the story of Israel’s redemption from slavery in Egypt, as YAH instructed each generation to do (Exodus 13:3–16).

 

This telling /haggadah happens at a ritual dinner known as a Seder.  According to Jewish tradition, some families set an empty seat at the Seder table for Elijah.

 

The door of the house is opened and they call out to Elijah — Eliyahu, Eliyahu! expecting the spirit of Elijah to enter and dine with the family.

 

In all households, a cup of wine is poured.  It is the Cup of Elijah, but they do not drink it.  Some children intently watch for ripples in the wine, a sign that Elijah has visited.

 

The family and friends at the table then sing Psalms 115–118 that, in part, express how they long for their final redemption:

 

“I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of ELOHIM.” (Psalm 116:13)

 

“The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; … Hosanna!—YAHUVEH, save us now!  We beseech Thee. YAHUVEH, grant us success! Blessed is he who comes in the name of YAHUVEH.”  (Psalm 118:22–26)

 

 

 

Waiting for Elijah All Year Long

 

At the closing of each Shabbat, there is a traditional ceremony called Havdalah /separation,which closes off the Shabbat and ushers in the new week.

 

Elijah and the coming Messianic Kingdom are remembered again in singing this prayer about him:

 

May Elijah the prophet,

Elijah the Tishbite,

Elijah of Gilead,

quickly in our day come to us

heralding redemption.

 

And every day, Jews say prayers from a siddur (prayer book) after their meals which include a petition for Elijah:

 

“May the Merciful One send us Elijah the prophet—may he be remembered for good — and let him bring us good tidings, deliverance, and consolation.”

 

YAHUVEH redeemed and restored a victorious yet dejected servant into even higher service, and HE wants to do the same for you.

 

Elijah came out of his cave, and YAHUVEH is asking each of us to come out from under the covers and get back on the path YAHUVEH has for us.

 

If we continue hiding away, our service for YAH is over.

 

But when we allow YAHUVEH to rebuild us through the talents, skills, and spiritual gifts that He has provided within the Body of Messiah, the assembly of YAH, we can find fulfillment or new vision.  And we can see YAH’s healing power and give HIM the praise.

 

Our passions may change, but our service is still for the Kingdom of GOD, and that’s all that truly matters.

 

YAHUVEH has redeemed you so that you can play a role in helping to redeem others.  This starts with your families, neighbors, co-workers, and people you run into whether it is in the supermarket, coffee shop, or a parking lot.

 

The people you meet may call themselves “Christians” because they grew up with that title.  Yet, as with most Jewish People, no one told them what YAHUVEH really did for them through the death and resurrection of YAHUSHUA.

 

They have never been reconciled to YAHUVEH through YAHUSHUA , nor have they been baptised in the Holy Spirit.

 

 

Moses and  Elijah was sent to His people to reconcile them with YAH, so pray each day for YAHUVEH to give you boldness to reach the lost and even those who think that they are not lost—Jew and Gentile alike.

 

YAHUVEH wants to use you.

 

“We are ambassadors for YAHUSHUA, as though GOD were making an appeal through us.”  (2 Corinthians 5:20)
