Shemini Shel Pesach
Welcome to Shemini Shel Pesach, this week’s Torah portion.
Deuteronomy 14:22 – 16:17;
(v) 22 “Every year you must take one tenth of everything your seed produces in the field, 23 and eat it in the presence of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM. In the place where he chooses to have his name live you will eat the tenth of your grain, new wine and olive oil, and the firstborn of your cattle and sheep, so that you will learn to fear YAHUVEH your ELOHIM always. 24 But if the distance is too great for you, so that you are unable to transport it, because the place where YAHUVEH chooses to put his name is too far away from you; then, when YAHUVEH your ELOHIM prospers you, 25 you are to convert it into money, take the money with you, go to the place which YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will choose, 26 and exchange the money for anything you want — cattle, sheep, wine, other intoxicating liquor, or anything you please — and you are to eat there in the presence of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, and enjoy yourselves, you and your household.
27 “But don’t neglect the Levi staying with you, because he has no share or inheritance like yours. 28 At the end of every three years you are to take all the tenths of your produce from that year and store it in your towns. 29 Then the Levi, because he has no share or inheritance like yours, along with the foreigner, the orphan and the widow living in your towns, will come, eat and be satisfied — so that YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will bless you in everything your hands produce.
15 (vi) “At the end of every seven years you are to have a sh’mittah. 2 Here is how the sh’mittah is to be done: every creditor is to give up what he has loaned to his fellow member of the community — he is not to force his neighbor or relative to repay it, because YAHUVEH’s time of remission has been proclaimed. 3 You may demand that a foreigner repay his debt, but you are to release your claim on whatever your brother owes you. 4 In spite of this, there will be no one needy among you; because YAHUVEH will certainly bless you in the land which YAHUVEH your ELOHIM is giving you as an inheritance to possess — 5 if only you will listen carefully to what YAHUVEH your ELOHIM says and take care to obey all these mitzvot I am giving you today. 6 Yes, YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will bless you, as he promised you — you will lend money to many nations without having to borrow, and you will rule over many nations without their ruling over you.
7 “If someone among you is needy, one of your brothers, in any of your towns in your land which YAHUVEH your ELOHIM is giving you, you are not to harden your heart or shut your hand from giving to your needy brother. 8 No, you must open your hand to him and lend him enough to meet his need and enable him to obtain what he wants. 9 Guard yourself against allowing your heart to entertain the mean-spirited thought that because the seventh year, the year of sh’mittah is at hand, you would be stingy toward your needy brother and not give him anything; for then he may cry out to YAHUVEH against you, and it will be your sin. 10 Rather, you must give to him; and you are not to be grudging when you give to him. If you do this, YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will bless you in all your work, in everything you undertake — 11 for there will always be poor people in the land. That is why I am giving you this order, ‘You must open your hand to your poor and needy brother in your land.’
12 “If your kinsman, a Hebrew man or woman, is sold to you, he is to serve you for six years; but in the seventh year, you are to set him free. 13 Moreover, when you set him free, don’t let him leave empty-handed; 14 but supply him generously from your flock, threshing-floor and winepress; from what YAHUVEH your ELOHIM has blessed you with, you are to give to him. 15 Remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and YAHUVEH your ELOHIM redeemed you; that is why I am giving you this order today. 16 But if he says to you, ‘I don’t want to leave you,’ because he loves you and your household, and because his life with you is a good one; 17 then take an awl, and pierce his ear through, right into the door; and he will be your slave forever. Do the same with your female slave. 18 Don’t resent it when you set him free, since during his six years of service he has been worth twice as much as a hired employee. Then YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will bless you in everything you do.
(vii) 19 “All the firstborn males in your herd of cattle and in your flock you are to set aside for YAHUVEH your ELOHIM; you are not to do any work with a firstborn from your herd or shear a firstborn sheep. 20 Each year you and your household are to eat it in the presence of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM in the place which YAHUVEH will choose. 21 But if it has a defect, is lame or blind, or has some other kind of fault, you are not to sacrifice it to YAHUVEH your ELOHIM; 22 rather, eat it on your own property; the unclean and the clean alike may eat it, like the gazelle or the deer. 23 Just don’t eat its blood, but pour it out on the ground like water.
16 “Observe the month of Aviv, and keep Pesach to YAHUVEH your ELOHIM; for in the month of Aviv, YAHUVEH your ELOHIM brought you out of Egypt at night. 2 You are to sacrifice the Pesach offering from flock and herd to YAHUVEH your ELOHIM in the place where YAHUVEH will choose to have his name live. 3 You are not to eat any hametz with it; for seven days you are to eat with it matzah, the bread of affliction; for you came out of the land of Egypt in haste. Thus you will remember the day you left the land of Egypt as long as you live. 4 No leaven is to be seen with you anywhere in your territory for seven days. None of the meat from your sacrifice on the first day in the evening is to remain all night until morning. 5 You may not sacrifice the Pesach offering in just any of the towns that YAHUVEH your ELOHIM is giving you; 6 but at the place where YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will choose to have his name live — there is where you are to sacrifice the Pesach offering, in the evening, when the sun sets, at the time of year that you came out of Egypt. 7 You are to roast it and eat it in the place YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will choose; in the morning you will return and go to your tents. 8 For six days you are to eat matzah; on the seventh day there is to be a festive assembly for YAHUVEH your ELOHIM; do not do any kind of work.
9 “You are to count seven weeks; you are to begin counting seven weeks from the time you first put your sickle to the standing grain. 10 You are to observe the festival of Shavu‘ot [weeks] for YAHUVEH your ELOHIM with a voluntary offering, which you are to give in accordance with the degree to which YAHUVEH your ELOHIM has prospered you. 11 You are to rejoice in the presence of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM — you, your sons and daughters, your male and female slaves, the L’vi’im living in your towns, and the foreigners, orphans and widows living among you — in the place where YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will choose to have his name live. 12 Remember that you were a slave in Egypt; then you will keep and obey these laws.
(Maftir) 13 “You are to keep the festival of Sukkot for seven days after you have gathered the produce of your threshing-floor and winepress. 14 Rejoice at your festival — you, your sons and daughters, your male and female slaves, the L’vi’im, and the foreigners, orphans and widows living among you. 15 Seven days you are to keep the festival for YAHUVEH your ELOHIM in the place YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will choose, because YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will bless you in all your crops and in all your work, so you are to be full of joy!
16 “Three times a year all your men are to appear in the presence of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM in the place which he will choose — at the festival of matzah, at the festival of Shavu‘ot and at the festival of Sukkot. They are not to show up before YAHUVEH empty-handed, 17 but every man is to give what he can, in accordance with the blessing YAHUVEH your ELOHIM has given you.
19 but present an offering made by fire, a burnt offering, to YAHUVEH, consisting of two young bulls, one ram, and seven male lambs in their first year (they are to be without defect for you) 20 with their grain offering, fine flour mixed with olive oil. Offer six quarts for a bull, four quarts for the ram, 21 and two quarts for each of the seven lambs; 22 also a male goat as a sin offering, to make atonement for you. 23 You are to offer these in addition to the morning burnt offering, which is the regular burnt offering. 24 In this fashion you are to offer daily, for seven days, the food of the offering made by fire, making a fragrant aroma for YAHUVEH ; it is to be offered in addition to the regular burnt offering and its drink offering. 25 On the seventh day you are to have a holy convocation; do not do any kind of ordinary work.
This very day he will stop at Nov;
and he will shake his fist
at the mountain of the daughter of Tziyon,
at the hill of Yerushalayim.
See how YAHUVEH Elohim-Tzva’ot
lops off the branches with terrible violence!
The ones standing highest are chopped down,
the lofty are laid low.
He will hack down the forest underbrush with an axe,
and the L’vanon in its splendor falls.
11 But a branch will emerge from the trunk of Yishai,
a shoot will grow from his roots.
The Spirit of YAHUVEH will rest on him,
the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the Spirit of counsel and power,
the Spirit of knowledge and fearing YAHUVEH —
he will be inspired by fearing YAHUVEH.
He will not judge by what his eyes see
or decide by what his ears hear,
but he will judge the impoverished justly;
he will decide fairly for the humble of the land.
He will strike the land with a rod from his mouth
and slay the wicked with a breath from his lips.
Justice will be the belt around his waist,
faithfulness the sash around his hips.
The wolf will live with the lamb;
the leopard lie down with the kid;
calf, young lion and fattened lamb together,
with a little child to lead them.
Cow and bear will feed together,
their young will lie down together,
and the lion will eat straw like the ox.
An infant will play on a cobra’s hole,
a toddler put his hand in a viper’s nest.
They will not hurt or destroy
anywhere on my holy mountain,
for the earth will be as full
of the knowledge of YAHUVEH
as water covering the sea.
On that day the root of Yishai,
which stands as a banner for the peoples —
the Goyim will seek him out,
and the place where he rests will be glorious.
On that day YAHUVEH will raise his hand
again, a second time,
to reclaim the remnant of his people who remain
from Ashur, Egypt, Patros,
Ethiopia, ‘Eilam, Shin‘ar,
Hamat and the islands in the sea.
He will hoist a banner for the Goyim,
assemble the dispersed of Isra’el,
and gather the scattered of Y’hudah
from the four corners of the earth.
Efrayim’s jealousy will cease —
those who harass Y’hudah will be cut off,
Efrayim will stop envying Y’hudah,
and Y’hudah will stop provoking Efrayim.
They will swoop down on the flank of the P’lishtim to the west.
Together they will pillage the people to the east —
they will put out their hand over Edom and Mo’av,
and the people of ‘Amon will obey them.
YAHUVEH will dry up the gulf
of the Egyptian Sea.
He will shake his hand over the [Euphrates] River
to bring a scorching wind,
dividing it into seven streams
and enabling people to cross dryshod.
There will be a highway for the remnant of his people
who are still left from Ashur,
just as there was for Isra’el
when he came out from the land of Egypt.
12 On that day you will say:
“I thank you, YAHUVEH,
because, although you were angry at me,
your anger is now turned away;
and you are comforting me.
“See! God is my salvation.
I am confident and unafraid;
for Yah YAHUVEH is my strength and my song,
and he has become my salvation!”
Then you will joyfully draw water
from the springs of salvation.
On that day you will say,
“Give thanks to YAHUVEH! Call on his name!
Make his deeds known among the peoples,
declare how exalted is his name.
Sing to YAHUVEH, for he has triumphed —
this is being made known throughout the earth.
Shout and sing for joy,
you who live in Tziyon;
for the Holy One of Isra’el
is with you in his greatness!”
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: What Will The MASHIACH Do?
Prophecy 102 YAHUSHUA Says Its Only A Matter of Time
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!
Prophecy 63 Oh Yisrael Where Is Your Blood Sacrifice
It was the ram that was symbolized that was caught in the thicket. This symbolized MY Beloved Son YAHUSHUA, the only Lamb of YAHUVEH, the perfect Lamb without sin or spot or blemish. The ram was caught in the thicket. MY Beloved Son YAHUSHUA cried out to ME. HE [was] also caught in the thicket of MY will. “Father, if it all be possible, take this cup from ME, but not as I will, but as YOUR will be done.” YAHUSHUA was symbolized as that ram, as that blood sacrifice that Abraham had that day which took Isaac’s place.
YAHUSHUA’s Blood sacrifice is the only human sacrifice that is Holy enough to wash away the sins of all mankind. If mankind will but accept and obey this new Blood Covenant I gave at Calvary through MY Beloved Son YAHUSHUA, this is MY promise to MY faithful children who love YAHUSHUA and accept this new Blood Covenant. As I didn’t leave MY Beloved Son in the tomb, I raised Him from the dead and He ascended into Heaven, so will I do the same for you. All MY Children have to do is receive, believe, love and try your best to obey MY Commandments. Is this so hard?
I speak to those who refuse MY Son YAHUSHUA as MESSIAH. Where is your blood sacrifice? All know there must be a blood sacrifice for the remission of sins. What animal is perfect? What human? None, except MY Beloved Son YAHUSHUA’s. I, YAHUVEH, cancelled the old blood covenant to give mankind a better blood covenant. This is the only way I can forgive your sins. There is no other way to MY throne, for ME to answer your prayers, except through the name YAHUSHUA, through HIS shed Blood at Calvary for the remission of your sins. There is no other intercessor before ME other than MY Son YAHUSHUA. Mohammed can’t save you. Calling upon Abraham can’t save you. Allah can’t save you. Only calling upon the name YAHUSHUA will save you. Study the Torah as I have spoken before through this handmaiden. Those that think keeping the Torah alone will save them must realize all have sinned and fell short of MY Glory [Romans 3:23]. Breaking one commandment is the same as breaking all the commandments. You need a Savior. YAHUSHUA is that Savior. Those that refuse to accept YAHUSHUA as their Lord and Savior, the MESSIAH of all mankind, will not be judged by YAHUSHUA, but will instead stand before Moses who will open the Book of Judgment without mercy. For he warned Israel there would be a new covenant coming, a new Blood Covenant. He knew that it could not appease MY wrath. This was only temporary for the animal sacrifices.
Oh Israel, I sent the new Blood Covenant to be born on your own soil. I did miracles through the Name of YAHUSHUA. I used Him to be a human sacrifice, a human blood sacrifice, the only perfect blood atonement for sin. And I arose HIM from the dead in the soil of Israel.
On this day of Yom Kippur, 2002, I speak unto Israel and I tell them I hear your prayers of repentance, asking for MY forgiveness. I see your fasting. I feel your fear as you realize your sins are a stench to MY nostrils. Oh Israel, you know “I AM” Adonai and I will judge you for the works of your flesh. Oh Israel, you know there is no blood sacrifice. You long to build that temple with walls so you can once again do sacrifices of animals for the remission of sins, where your high priest can cry aloud for mercy. Yet, you refuse to receive the gift I gave you, a temple without walls filled with the RUACH ha KODESH, filled with MY love and mercy, MY miracles and MY judgment. A temple built not with human hands, a perfect, holy, sinless temple. His Name is YAHUSHUA. MY Name [YAH] is contained in HIS Name. The power is in HIS Sacred Name, the power is in OUR Sacred Names.
Prophecy 95 YAHUSHUA Says “Pick Up Your Weapons! I AM Alive!”
Those who belong to ME. Those who have given their life to ME. Those who have asked ME to come into their hearts. Those who strive to obey ME. Those who strive to please ME. Those who worship ME and put ME first in their life and their love and in their marriage, lift up this weapon before the enemy. Only MY Name and MY Blood, only through MY Body, can anyone be saved! 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.
Torah Portion: Recognizing The True Messiah
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?
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.
Prophecy 76 BELOVED BRIDE OF YAHUSHUA, ARISE AND PREPARE YOURSELF, FOR YOUR GROOM DOTH COME!
The Bride of YAHUSHUA does not struggle to keep the Ten Commandments, instead you guard them and defend them knowing YAHUVEH wrote these Ten Laws on a tablet of stone with his own finger and HE has not changed the Laws nor discarded any of them. Man changes the Laws, not Abba YAHUVEH who is the Creator of the Laws given to Moses at Mount Sinai. YAHUVEH is the Creator of the Sabbath and commanded all creation to honor it when he rested on the 7th day after creating all of Creation. The Sabbath is perpetual, never ending, and even will be honored in the Reign of the Millennium.
Verily I say unto you, the True Bride of YAHUSHUA, you know all of this and your sole desire is to obey YAHUVEH’s every word and I am that Word that was made Flesh. I am the Living Torah. Verily I say unto you that you, the Bride of YAHUSHUA seek to obey and go the extra mile, what ever it takes to obey Abba YAHUVEH, to do what others deem foolish such as observing the Holy Feast Days and keeping the true Sabbath and flee man-made religions that changed the Sabbath to Sunday.
“Now as they were eating, YAHUSHUA took bread and after blessing it, broke it and gave it to the disciples and said, ‘Take, eat; this is My body.’” (Matthew 26:26)
Last Readings of Scriptures For Passover
Seventh Day Readings:
Exodus 13:17 – 15:26;
2 Samuel 22
Eighth Day Readings:
Deuteronomy 14:22 – 16:17;
A Future Passover (Pesach L’atid)
Meal of the Messiah
For the past seven days, we have been eating matzah (unleavened bread) and abstaining from all forms of leaven.
“For seven days eat bread made without yeast and on the seventh day hold a festival to YAHUVEH.” (Exodus 13:6)
On the seventh night of Passover, some Jewish people observe the custom of staying awake all night, since this is when the Israelites were believed to be crossing the Red Sea — an event that took all night and demonstrated the miraculous and awesome power of ELOHIM.
“Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to YAHUVEH: ‘I will sing to YAHUVEH, for He is highly exalted. Both horse and driver He has hurled into the sea.’” (Exodus 15:1)
Tomorrow night an eighth day of Passover will be celebrated.
This extra day, called Acharon Shel Pesach /Last Day of Passover, is devoted to YAHUSHUA HAMASHIACH.
The Torah readings for this day are beautiful Messianic prophecies that promise the Messianic era.
In the Torah, Jewish People around the world will read about some of the festivals that Messiah has already fulfilled and will fulfill when He returns in Deuteronomy 15:19–16:17 and Numbers 28:19–25.
In the prophetic portion (the haftarah), we will read Isaiah10:32–12:6 that tells us about the Messiah: “A shoot shall come out from the stump of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots.”
Isaiah also says that “the spirit of ELOHIM shall rest on him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of ELOHIM.” (Isaiah 11:1–2)
What Will the Mashiach Do?
The Hebrew term Mashiach means anointed one, from the practice of anointing the kings of Israel with oil; therefore, the Mashiach will be the anointed one as KING of KINGS in the end of days.
This word is closely related in Hebrew to the word, Moshiach, which means to save; therefore, the Messiah both the Anointed One and Savior.
YAHUSHUA clearly and openly proclaimed Himself to be the Messiah that the Jewish People were eagerly anticipating, patiently awaiting and passionately longing for.
When YAHUSHUA met the Samaritan woman at the well, He told her that He was the Messiah.
“The woman said, ‘I know that Messiah the anointed one ‘is coming. When He comes, He will explain everything to us.’ Then YAHUSHUA declared, “I, the one speaking to you — I am He.” (John 4:25–26)
YAHUSHUA also publicly proclaimed His Messianic mission in the synagogue. When He received an aliyah (a call to come up and read from the Torah scroll) in the synagogue on one particular Sabbath day, He was handed the scroll of Isaiah, which He unrolled to the well-known Messianic prophecy of Isaiah 61:1–2:
“The Spirit of ELOHIM is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of ELOHIM’s favor.” (Luke 4:18–19)
To everyone’s amazement, this simple carpenter, son of Joseph, then rolled up the scroll and sat down, saying, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” (Luke 4:21)
Recognizing the True Messiah
“The Spirit of YAHUVEH will rest on Him.” (Isaiah 11:2)
YAHUSHUA warned us to beware of the numerous false messiahs and false prophets that would arise in the last days, performing signs and wonders to deceive people, even the very elect. YAHUSHUA said,
“Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many.” (Matthew 24:4–5)
“At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you ahead of time.” (Matthew 24:23–25)
To distinguish the real Messiah from false messiahs, we must rely on the Word of YAHUVEH for answers.
There are at least 333 Messianic prophecies in the Jewish Scriptures that describe the real Messiah.
YAHUSHUA’s entire ancestry, birth, character, teaching, ministry, life, death, burial, and resurrection were prophesied by 25 Jewish writers hundreds of years before His birth.
The following is a list of just a few of these, which point to YAHUSHUA as “Mashiach” and
- He will be born in Bethlehem(Beit-Lechem) (Micah 5:2; Matthew 2:1)
- He will be born to a virgin and will be called YAH With Us (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23)
- He will be despised and rejectedby his own people (Isaiah 53:3; John 1:11, 5:43)
- He will suffer terribly (Isaiah 53:3; Matthew 26:38)
- He will be pierced and woundedfor our sins (Isaiah 53:5; Psalm 22:16; Luke 23:33)
- He will not open his mouth in his own defense (Isaiah 53:7; Matthew 27:12–14)
- He will die a violent, premature death(Isaiah 53:8,12; Luke 23:46)
- He will die with the wicked but be buried with the rich (Isaiah 53:9; Matthew 27:57–60)
- He will be raised from the dead to life(Psalm 16:10; Acts 2:29–32; Matthew 28:5–6)
- He will sit on the throne of His father, David, and rule forever (Isaiah 9:6–7; Luke 1:30–33)
The Messianic Prophecy Bible will go to great lengths to explain all of these Messianic Prophecies and more so that the Jewish People will be able to read in a Jewish Bible the truth about YAHUSHUA HaMashiach!
Many of these prophecies have already been fulfilled in the true Messiah, YAHUSHUA, such as the Biblical Holy Day of Passover, with all of its rich symbolism. Others remain to be completed at His second coming. This also will be explained.
And while Moshaich’s an incredibly powerful testimony of YAHUSHUA, the LAMB of GOD, whose blood saves us from all sin and judgment.
Even the matzah and wine of this meal remind us of the day when YAHUSHUA said, “Take and eat; this is My body … and blood.” (Matthew 26:26–28)
So, let us celebrate with our brothers and sisters, eagerly await our future redemption when we live in the Land with YAHUSHUA and Messiah will reign in Jerusalem.
SHABBAT SHALOM FROM AMIGHTYWIND
