CHUKAT -Statute or Decree
Welcome to Parasha CHUKAT -Statute or Decree, this week’s Torah portion.
19 YAHUVEH said to Moshe and Aharon, 2 “This is the regulation from the Torah which YAHUVEH has commanded. Tell the people of Isra’el to bring you a young red female cow without fault or defect and which has never borne a yoke. 3 You are to give it to El‘azar the cohen; it is to be brought outside the camp and slaughtered in front of him. 4 El‘azar the cohen is to take some of its blood with his finger and sprinkle this blood toward the front of the tent of meeting seven times. 5 The heifer is to be burned to ashes before his eyes — its skin, meat, blood and dung is to be burned to ashes. 6 The cohen is to take cedar-wood, hyssop and scarlet yarn and throw them onto the heifer as it is burning up. 7 Then the cohen is to wash his clothes and himself in water, after which he may re-enter the camp; but the cohen will remain unclean until evening. 8 The person who burned up the heifer is to wash his clothes and himself in water, but he will remain unclean until evening. 9 A man who is clean is to collect the ashes of the heifer and store them outside the camp in a clean place. They are to be kept for the community of the people of Isra’el to prepare water for purification from sin. 10 The one who collected the ashes of the heifer is to wash his clothes and be unclean until evening. For the people of Isra’el and for the foreigner staying with them this will be a permanent regulation.
11 “Anyone who touches a corpse, no matter whose dead body it is, will be unclean for seven days. 12 He must purify himself with [these ashes] on the third and seventh days; then he will be clean. But if he does not purify himself the third and seventh days, he will not be clean. 13 Anyone who touches a corpse, no matter whose dead body it is, and does not purify himself has defiled the tabernacle of YAHUVEH. That person will be cut off from Isra’el, because the water for purification was not sprinkled on him. He will be unclean; his uncleanness is still on him.
14 “This is the law: when a person dies in a tent, everyone who enters the tent and everything in the tent will be unclean for seven days. 15 Every open container without a cover closely attached is unclean. 16 Also whoever is in an open field and touches a corpse, whether of someone killed by a weapon or of someone who died naturally, or the bone of a person, or a grave, will be unclean for seven days.
17 “For the unclean person they are to take some of the ashes of the animal burned up as a purification from sin and add them to fresh water in a container. 18 A clean person is to take a bunch of hyssop leaves, dip it in the water and sprinkle it on the tent, on all the containers, on the people who were there, and on the person who touched the bone or the person killed or the one who died naturally or the grave. 19 The clean person will sprinkle the unclean person on the third and seventh days. On the seventh day he will purify him; then he will wash his clothes and himself in water; and he will be clean at evening. 20 The person who remains unclean and does not purify himself will be cut off from the community because he has defiled the sanctuary of YAHUVEH. The water for purification has not been sprinkled on him; he is unclean. 21 This is to be a permanent regulation for them. The person who sprinkles the water for purification is to wash his clothes. Whoever touches the water for purification will be unclean until evening. 22 Anything the unclean person touches will be unclean, and anyone who touches him will be unclean until evening.”
20 The people of Isra’el, the whole community, entered the Tzin Desert in the first month, and they stayed in Kadesh. There Miryam died, and there she was buried.
2 Because the community had no water, they assembled themselves against Moshe and Aharon. 3 The people quarreled with Moshe and said, “We wish we had died when our brothers died before YAHUVEH. 4 Why did you bring YAHUVEH’s community into this desert? To die there, we and our livestock? 5 Why did you make us leave Egypt? To bring us to this terrible place without seed, figs, grapevines, pomegranates or even water to drink?” 6 Moshe and Aharon left the assembly, went to the entrance of the tent of meeting and fell on their faces; and the glory of YAHUVEH appeared to them.
7 YAHUVEH said to Moshe, 8 “Take the staff, assemble the community, you and Aharon your brother; and before their eyes, tell the rock to produce its water. You will bring them water out of the rock and thus enable the community and their livestock to drink.” 9 Moshe took the staff from the presence of YAHUVEH, as he had ordered him. 10 But after Moshe and Aharon had assembled the community in front of the rock, he said to them, “Listen here, you rebels! Are we supposed to bring you water from this rock?” 11 Then Moshe raised his hand and hit the rock twice with his staff. Water flowed out in abundance, and the community and their livestock drank.
12 But YAHUVEH said to Moshe and Aharon, “Because you did not trust in me, so as to cause me to be regarded as holy by the people of Isra’el, you will not bring this community into the land I have given them.” 13 This is M’rivah Spring [Disputation Spring], where the people of Isra’el disputed with YAHUVEH, and he was caused to be regarded as holy by them.
14 Moshe sent messengers from Kadesh to the king of Edom: “This is what your brother Isra’el says: you know all the troubles we have gone through — 15 that our ancestors went down into Egypt, we lived in Egypt a long time, and the Egyptians treated us and our ancestors badly. 16 But when we cried out to YAHUVEH, he heard us, sent an angel and brought us out of Egypt. Now here we are in Kadesh, a city at the edge of your territory. 17 Please let us pass through your land. We will not go through fields or vineyards, and we won’t drink any water from the wells. We will go along the King’s Highway, not turning aside either to the right or to the left until we have left your territory.”
18 But Edom answered, “You are not to pass through my land; if you do, I will come out against you with the sword.” 19 The people of Isra’el replied, “We will keep to the highway; if we do drink the water, either we or our livestock, we will pay for it. Just let us pass through on foot — it’s nothing.” 20 But he said, “You are not to pass through”; and Edom came out against them with many people and much force. 21 Thus Edom refused to allow Isra’el passage through its territory, so Isra’el turned away.
22 They traveled on from Kadesh; and the people of Isra’el, the whole community, arrived at Mount Hor. 23 At Mount Hor, by the border of the land of Edom, YAHUVEH said to Moshe and Aharon, 24 “Aharon is about to be gathered to his people, because he is not to enter the land I have given to the people of Isra’el, inasmuch as you rebelled against what I said at the M’rivah Spring. 25 Take Aharon and El‘azar his son, bring them up to Mount Hor, 26 remove the garments from Aharon and put them on El‘azar his son. Aharon will be gathered to his people — he will die there.”
27 Moshe did as YAHUVEH had ordered. They went up onto Mount Hor before the eyes of the whole community. 28 Moshe removed the garments from Aharon, and put them on El‘azar his son, and Aharon died there on the top of the mountain. Then Moshe and El‘azar came down the mountain. 29 When the entire community saw that Aharon was dead, they mourned Aharon thirty days, the whole house of Isra’el.
21 Then the king of ‘Arad, a Kena‘ani who lived in the Negev, heard that Isra’el was approaching by way of Atarim, so he attacked Isra’el and took some of them captive. 2 Isra’el made a vow to YAHUVEH, “If you will hand this people over to me, I will completely destroy their cities.” 3 YAHUVEH listened to what Isra’el said and handed over the Kena‘anim, so they completely destroyed them and their cities and named the place Hormah [complete destruction].
4 Then they traveled from Mount Hor on the road toward the Sea of Suf in order to go around the land of Edom; but the people’s tempers grew short because of the detour. 5 The people spoke against ELOHIM and against Moshe: “Why did you bring us up out of Egypt? To die in the desert? There’s no real food, there’s no water, and we’re sick of this miserable stuff we’re eating!”
6 In response, YAHUVEH sent poisonous snakes among the people; they bit the people, and many of Isra’el’s people died. 7 The people came to Moshe and said, “We sinned by speaking against YAHUVEH and against you. Pray to YAHUVEH that he rid us of these snakes.” Moshe prayed for the people, 8 and YAHUVEH answered Moshe: “Make a poisonous snake and put it on a pole. When anyone who has been bitten sees it, he will live.” 9 Moshe made a bronze snake and put it on the pole; if a snake had bitten someone, then, when he looked toward the bronze snake, he stayed alive.
10 The people of Isra’el traveled on and camped at Ovot. 11 From Ovot they traveled and camped at ‘Iyei-Ha‘avarim, in the desert fronting Mo’av on the east. 12 From there they traveled and camped in Vadi Zered. 13 From there they traveled and camped on the other side of the Arnon, in the desert; this river comes out of the territory of the Emori; for the Arnon is the boundary between Mo’av and the Emori. 14 This is why it says, in the Book of the Wars of YAHUVEH, “. . . Vahev at Sufah, the vadis of Arnon, 15 and the slope of the vadis extending as far as the site of ‘Ar, which lie next to the territory of Mo’av.”
16 From there they went on to Be’er [well]; that is the well about which YAHUVEH said to Moshe, “Assemble the people, and I will give them water.” 17 Then Isra’el sang this song:
“Spring up, oh well!
Sing to the well
18 sunk by the princes,
dug by the people’s leaders
with the scepter,
with their staffs!”
From the desert they went to Mattanah, 19 from Mattanah to Nachali’el, from Nachali’el to Bamot, 20 and from Bamot to the valley by the plain of Mo’av at the start of the Pisgah range, where it overlooks the desert.
21 Isra’el sent messengers to Sichon, king of the Emori, with this message: 22 “Let me pass through your land. We won’t turn aside into fields or vineyards, and we won’t drink any water from the wells. We will go along the King’s Highway until we have left your territory.” 23 But Sichon would not allow Isra’el to pass through his territory. Instead, Sichon mustered all his people and went out into the desert to fight Isra’el. On reaching Yachatz, he fought Isra’el. 24 Isra’el defeated him by force of arms and took control of his land from the Arnon to the Yabok River, but only as far as the people of ‘Amon, because the territory of the people of ‘Amon was well defended. 25 Isra’el took all these cities — Isra’el lived in all the cities of the Emori, in Heshbon and all its surrounding towns. 26 Heshbon was the city of Sichon, the king of the Emori, who had fought against the former king of Mo’av and conquered all his land up to the Arnon. 27 This is why the storytellers say,
“Come to Heshbon! Let it be rebuilt!
Let Sichon’s city be restored!
28 “For fire burst out of Heshbon,
a flame from the city of Sichon.
It consumed ‘Ar of Mo’av,
the lords of Arnon’s high places.
29 “Woe to you, Mo’av!
You are destroyed, people of K’mosh!
He let his sons be fugitives and his daughters captives
of Sichon, king of the Emori.
30 “We shot them down; Heshbon is destroyed,
all the way to Divon.
We even laid waste to Nofach,
which extends as far as Meidva.”
31 Thus Isra’el lived in the land of the Emori.
32 Moshe sent men to reconnoiter Ya‘zer; they captured its towns and drove out the Emori who were there.
33 Then they turned and went up along the road to Bashan; and ‘Og, the king of Bashan, marched out against them, he with all his people, to fight at Edre‘i. 34 YAHUVEH said to Moshe, “Don’t be afraid of him, for I have handed him over to you with all his people and his land. You will treat him just as you did Sichon, king of the Emori, who lived at Heshbon.” 35 So they struck him down, with his sons and all his people, until there was no one left alive; and then they took control of his land.
22 Then the people of Isra’el traveled on and camped in the plains of Mo’av beyond the Yarden River, opposite Yericho.
11 Now Yiftach, a brave soldier from Gil‘ad, was the son of a prostitute. His father, Gil‘ad, 2 had other sons by his wife; and when his wife’s sons grew up, they drove Yiftach away and told him, “You will not inherit from our father, because you are another woman’s son.” 3 Then Yiftach fled from his brothers and lived in the territory of Tov, where he enlisted a gang of rowdies who would go out raiding with him.
4 After a while the people of ‘Amon made war against Isra’el. 5 When the army of ‘Amon attacked Isra’el, the leaders of Gil‘ad went to fetch Yiftach from the territory of Tov 6 and said to him, “Come and be our chief, so that we can fight the army of ‘Amon.” 7 Yiftach answered the leaders of Gil‘ad, “Didn’t you hate me so much that you forced me out of my father’s house? Why are you coming to me now, when you’re in trouble?” 8 The leaders of Gil‘ad replied, “Here is why we’ve come back to you now: if you lead us in war with the people of ‘Amon, you will be head over everyone living in Gil‘ad.” 9 Yiftach answered them, “If you bring me back home to fight the army of ‘Amon, and YAHUVEH defeats them for me, I will be your head.” 10 The leaders of Gil‘ad said to Yiftach, “YAHUVEH is witness that we promise to do what you have said.” 11 Then Yiftach went with the leaders of Gil‘ad, and the people made him head and chief over them. Yiftach repeated all these conditions at Mitzpah in the presence of YAHUVEH.
12 Yiftach sent messengers to the king of the people of ‘Amon to say, “What’s your problem with us? Why are you invading our territory?” 13 The king of ‘Amon answered the messengers of Yiftach, “Because Isra’el took away my territory when they came up from Egypt. They took everything from the Arnon to the Yabok and the Yarden. Now, restore it peacefully.” 14 Yiftach sent messengers again to the king of the people of ‘Amon 15 with this response, “Here is what Yiftach has to say: ‘Isra’el captured neither the territory of Mo’av nor the territory of the people of ‘Amon. 16 But when Isra’el came up from Egypt, walked through the desert to the Red Sea and arrived at Kadesh, 17 then Isra’el sent messengers to the king of Edom, to say, “Please let us pass through your land.” But the king of Edom wouldn’t let them. He sent a similar message to the king of Mo’av, but neither would he, so Isra’el stayed at Kadesh. 18 Then they walked through the desert, around the territory of Edom and the territory of Mo’av, past the east border of the territory of Mo’av, and pitched camp on the other side of the Arnon; but they did not cross the border into Mo’av, for the Arnon was the border of Mo’av. 19 Isra’el sent messengers to Sichon king of the Emori and king of Heshbon with this message, “Please let us pass through your land to our own place.” 20 But Sichon did not trust that Isra’el would only pass through his land, so he gathered all his people together, pitched camp in Yahatz and fought against Isra’el. 21 YAHUVEH the ELOHIM of Isra’el handed Sichon and all his people over to Isra’el, and they killed them. Thus Isra’el possessed all the territory of the Emori who lived there. 22 They took possession of all the territory of the Emori from the Arnon to the Yabok and from the desert to the Yarden. 23 So now that YAHUVEH the ELOHIM of Isra’el has expelled the Emori before his people Isra’el, do you think that you will expel us? 24 You should just keep the territory your god K’mosh has given you; while we, for our part, will hold onto whatever YAHUVEH our ELOHIM has given us of the lands that belonged to others before us. 25 Really, are you better than Balak the son of Tzippor, king of Mo’av? Did he ever pick a quarrel with Isra’el or fight with us? 26 Isra’el lived in Heshbon and its villages, in ‘Aro‘er and its villages and in all the cities on the banks of the Arnon for three hundred years. Why didn’t you take them back during that time? 27 No, I have done you no wrong. But you are doing me wrong to war against me. May YAHUVEH the Judge be judge today between the people of Isra’el and the people of ‘Amon.’” 28 But the king of the people of ‘Amon paid no attention to the message Yiftach sent him.
29 Then the spirit of YAHUVEH came upon Yiftach; and he passed through Gil‘ad and M’nasheh, on through Mitzpeh of Gil‘ad, and from there over to the people of ‘Amon. 30 Yiftach made a vow to YAHUVEH: “If you will hand the people of ‘Amon over to me, 31 then whatever comes out the doors of my house to meet me when I return in peace from the people of ‘Amon will belong to YAHUVEH; I will sacrifice it as a burnt offering.” 32 So Yiftach crossed over to fight the people of ‘Amon, and YAHUVEH handed them over to him. 33 He killed them from ‘Aro‘er until you reach Minnit, twenty cities, all the way to Avel-K’ramim; it was a massacre. So the people of ‘Amon were defeated before the people of Isra’el.
9 Now the first covenant had both regulations for worship and a Holy Place here on earth. 2 A tent was set up, the outer one, which was called the Holy Place; in it were the menorah, the table and the Bread of the Presence. 3 Behind the second parokhet was a tent called the Holiest Place, 4 which had the golden altar for burning incense and the Ark of the Covenant, entirely covered with gold. In the Ark were the gold jar containing the man, Aharon’s rod that sprouted and the stone Tablets of the Covenant; 5 and above it were the k’ruvim representing the Sh’khinah, casting their shadow on the lid of the Ark — but now is not the time to discuss these things in detail.
6 With things so arranged, the cohanim go into the outer tent all the time to discharge their duties; 7 but only the cohen hagadol enters the inner one; and he goes in only once a year, and he must always bring blood, which he offers both for himself and for the sins committed in ignorance by the people. 8 By this arrangement, the Ruach HaKodesh showed that so long as the first Tent had standing, the way into the Holiest Place was still closed. 9 This symbolizes the present age and indicates that the conscience of the person performing the service cannot be brought to the goal by the gifts and sacrifices he offers. 10 For they involve only food and drink and various ceremonial washings — regulations concerning the outward life, imposed until the time for ELOHIM to reshape the whole structure.
11 But when the Messiah appeared as cohen gadol of the good things that are happening already, then, through the greater and more perfect Tent which is not man-made (that is, it is not of this created world), 12 he entered the Holiest Place once and for all.
And he entered not by means of the blood of goats and calves, but by means of his own blood, thus setting people free forever. 13 For if sprinkling ceremonially unclean persons with the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer restores their outward purity; 14 then how much more the blood of the Messiah, who, through the eternal Spirit, offered himself to ELOHIM as a sacrifice without blemish, will purify our conscience from works that lead to death, so that we can serve the living ELOHIM!
15 It is because of this death that he is mediator of a new covenant [or will]. Because a death has occurred which sets people free from the transgressions committed under the first covenant, those who have been called may receive the promised eternal inheritance. 16 For where there is a will, there must necessarily be produced evidence of its maker’s death, 17 since a will goes into effect only upon death; it never has force while its maker is still alive.
18 This is why the first covenant too was inaugurated with blood. 19 After Moshe had proclaimed every command of the Torah to all the people, he took the blood of the calves with some water and used scarlet wool and hyssop to sprinkle both the scroll itself and all the people; 20 and he said, “This is the blood of the covenant which ELOHIM has ordained for you.” 21 Likewise, he sprinkled with the blood both the Tent and all the things used in its ceremonies. 22 In fact, according to the Torah, almost everything is purified with blood; indeed, without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.
23 Now this is how the copies of the heavenly things had to be purified, but the heavenly things themselves require better sacrifices than these. 24 For the Messiah has entered a Holiest Place which is not man-made and merely a copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, in order to appear now on our behalf in the very presence of ELOHIM.
25 Further, he did not enter heaven to offer himself over and over again, like the cohen hagadol who enters the Holiest Place year after year with blood that is not his own; 26 for then he would have had to suffer death many times — from the founding of the universe on. But as it is, he has appeared once at the end of the ages in order to do away with sin through the sacrifice of himself. 27 Just as human beings have to die once, but after this comes judgment, 28 so also the Messiah, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin, but to deliver those who are eagerly waiting for him.
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: The Bridge From Impurity To Purity
Prophecy 95 YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH Says “Pick Up Your Weapon! I AM ALIVE!”
Pick up this weapon that has been long discarded but do not do it with unclean lips. Do not do it with a spirit of unrepentance. Do not do it as a mere ritual. Words written by another man. Give ME your hearts. And I will speak forth MY Words. Do not do it while you’re in sin! Otherwise you’re drinking damnation unto yourselves! Where is the fear? Where is the fear?
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 unrepentant heart for you’re only drinking damnation. You are only drinking of curses. Come to ME with a repentant 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.
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.
Oh the stench, the stench, the stench that’s coming from earth! Oh the stench, the stench, the stench of humanity, surrounded by inhumanity! Even MY own Holy angels cry out, “Can we not yet leave?” But they’ve been sent there to protect those whose names are found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
Some of you have your greatest battles in your own homes. You can get along with your spouse in every way except when it comes to the Truth of what I say. This is your test. This is your trial. Who will you love more? Who do you desire to please more? Who will you obey? Will you listen to the words they say? Or will you obey the Words that I say? What is the price of your soul? For if you cannot make this decision now, I guarantee you, you will not make the right decision in the Great Tribulation to come. This is your soul. What woman, what man is worth your soul? I gave MY Body and MY Blood. I arose again from the dead for all to see that satan did not have victory over ME. So you’d no longer be unequally yoked.
This is the Words I have you say this day. You said, “Give me something to feed YOUR Sheep and Lambs.” Elisabeth (Elisheva) this is what I want you to say. This is what I want you to write. This is what is to be transcribed by Katherineyah. YAHUSHUA’S Demon Stompers, oh MY precious Little Ones, Intercessory Prayer Warriors, Holy before ME! Oh you struggle like anyone. Temptations come at you from the left and the right. But you know to put the Ephesians 6 armor on. You know to stand forth in MY Name through MY Blood. This is a Ministry that I have given you to be mighty prayer warriors! Shield bearers to cover Amightywind Ministry, to cover Elisabeth (Elisheva), to cover one another in Truth.
Seasoned warriors come forth! Join them in the battle lines. MY Bride of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH come forth! Join us in the battle lines! For there is victory there. The more you need deliverance, the more you need blessing, the more you need healed, the more you need forgiven… the more, the more, the more, do not discard your only weapon, that which you call communion. And I tell you this, do not take it with a sinful mouth, a sinful heart, repent before you do this and repentence is not merely words that come out of lips. Repentence is turning away from that which you know is evil! For I am faithful and I am true and as you give ME your heart and you lay this repentence down before ME, I will forgive you. And for those of you who are listening and reading this, you haven’t given your life to ME yet but you come here and you read the Words that I speak forth out of this Prophetic Ringmaiden, I remind you of this, do not wait to become perfected. Do not wait until you think, “Oh now I’m Holy.” For it cannot happen like that.
First you accept ME as your MASHIACH. First you ask forgiveness of your sins. First you ask ME to live MY life within you, to take away the evil desires in you, to cleanse you with MY shed Blood and then I clean you up. It’s as a baby being birthed. When that baby first comes out it is covered with the body fluids of the mother. It has to be washed off. It has to be slapped for it to breath. Breath oh little one, come unto ME. Let ME wash you off of this world’s sin. I chastise those that I love so you can breathe in ME, so MY SPIRIT can live within you, the RUACH ha KODESH can live in you.
MY precious, precious, precious ones. I desire, I desire, I desire to deliver you. Do not, do not, do not allow this world to tell you there’s no such thing as sin for sinners cannot inherit the Kingdom of Heaven. But forgiven sinners can. Come unto ME all you who labor and are heavy laden with the sorrows and the burdens and the sins of this world. Give them to ME for I will give you rest. This is the Words Elisabeth (Elisheva) I have you to say this day, on this Shabbat.
Tell them the Ten Commandments still stand. Written by ABBA YAHUVEH’S own fiery hand. They were written on a tablet of stone, not written on a paper or scroll to be erased or changed. What is sin then is sin now. And beware of any leader that tells you anything different. I have more to say but it shall be on another day for the Holy shall become more Holy and the unholy shall become more unholy and who’s who in Hollywood is truly who’s who in hell. Do not mimic the ways of this world for although you are in this world, you are not to be part of this world.
Prophecy 106 I, YAHUVEH, Say “Clean Your House!”
But I speak to those now in the year you mark as 2009, CLEAN YOUR HOUSE! Your house is the Temple of the RUACH ha KODESH (I Corinthians 6:19). Your house is the physical as well as the spiritual. Anything that offends ME, throw it out. I speak out of this Elijah of New [in Hebrew, Eliyahu] and I speak the words Elijah of Old [in Hebrew, Eliyahu] spoke, choose ye this day which God you shall serve. Repent and fall on your faces before ME, but I do not want only the words I want to see action behind those words. Faith without works is dead. (James 2:20) I no longer want to hear excuses. I have had enough of your excuses on why you sin. What kind of example are you?
If the world of the reprobate would hold a trial today, would there be enough evidence that you serve ME? That you bring souls to YAHUSHUA. That you live Holy for ME. Would you have to say, “I plead guilty to all of these things” because that is what I expect. Are you willing to lay your life down for YAHUSHUA as HE was willing to lay HIS life down for you?
Why is (are) your eyes on the things of the flesh such as pornography?
Do you not know that it is the proud that is cast down. Pride goeth before a fall. (Proverbs 16:18) Oh how many of you who will hear this and read this are so puffed up with pride and say, “Oh I shall not be moved, when YAH shakes this world in 2009 I shall not be shaken”. It is by the mercy and the Blood of YAHUSHUA alone that you will not be shaken and it depends on what you’ve done. (Colossians 1:13-20) Do you have secret sin? Do you think no one knows? MY eyes go to and fro. I see into your very heart. I know who is truly Holy. I know who is playing games at Holiness and I know who doesn’t even try and just make excuses for their sins.
I know what you want ME to do and now I have told you what I expect of you. Avoid ALL unholiness as if it were the plague for you are surrounded with it. But I remind you of the children of Israel and I remind you of the plagues and I remind you of how it did not come upon the children of Israel. It only came upon MY enemies. Hide yourselves in the robes of MY righteousness. Hide yourselves from MY wrath. For those that I call MY children if you will but strive to obey and truly, truly repent and turn away from evil. I shall hide you. I shall comfort you. I shall Bless you. I shall provide for you. I shall anoint you, if you will but just obey every word I say and stop making excuses for sin.
I already know what path you’ve taken. The path to hell is so broad, so wide. There is just a narrow path to Heaven. How many of you reading and listening to this will choose that narrow path? (Matthew 7:13-14) It is not just a straight path, it is a winding road as test after test shall come, for the trials of your faith is more precious than gold. (First Peter 1:7)
I am the one who tries you. I bring you to this Ministry for it also has a Jeremiah 6 (27-30) calling on it. It is a tester of metals. How many this leadership has seen come. How many they have seen fall. How many, how many, how many tears Elisabeth [Elisheva] has shed as those she is so sure will not fall, those she is sure walk Holy before ME and they fall. How many never arise again.
You who call yourselves YAHUSHUA’s demon stompers and prayer intercessors, some of you have secret sin. I have not revealed it yet, but be assured it will be exposed if you do not quickly repent. You have to choose this day who you will serve. This secret sin could be hanging on to a mate I told you to let go for your own souls sake, for your own lifes sake. Where you showed your allegiance more to them than you have to ME.
Your secret sin is not doing the work I called you to do. When I hand you a task and I say, “Do this to reach the tongues of your people” and you say, “Oh no, I have too much of my own personal problems now” and your eyes are focused on the heathen more than the souls, more than the sheep and the lambs that need (to be) fed. This is sin in MY eyes, for you put your hand to the plow and you looked back. You took your hand off the plow. You stopped tilling that soil and seeding it and speaking forth these Words in your own native tongue so others can be fed. The spirit of selfishness has come upon you. You know who I speak of. You know what translators have let ME down. I will not continue to wait. I will raise up someone else to take your place. (Elisabeth [Elisheva] saw a vision at this time with the word China)
Anyone who hates this Ministry, beware of. For they truly hate that which is Holy. The darkness fears the light.
I speak now to those who love the truth coming forth from this Ministry. You know I, YAHUVEH, speak forth. You know your MASHIACH YAHUSHUA speaks forth. You know the RUACH ha KODESH your IMMAYAH speaks forth, Mother Wisdom. You do not fear the light for you are part of the light and you allow YAHUSHUA your MASHIACH to be your one and only guiding light. (I Peter 2:9)
Torah Portion: Tending To Our Emotions
Prophecy 43 ‘I AM’ GOD The Potter, You Are MY Clay! MY Gifts Are not For Sale!
MY Beloved One, hear ME clearly through this handmaiden of MINE. If you have heard it once I will say it again, I do not call the qualified, I qualify the called. You are being promoted and yet you act as though I am demoting you. You hear MY voice and yet you continue to test what you know to be true. Remember you are held accountable for what you know. I do not tell MY secrets to you only for yourself to know, but for you to share the secret knowledge I give you with those I tell you to speak and share with. It is not your responsibility whether the messages are believed. Your responsibility is simply delivering the messages. Whether the message is believed is up to the hearer of the message.
You are to be the doer of the message and deliver what I tell you to say and not edit it or cushion it in anyway. Are you more afraid of offending ME or the people I send you too? I am taking you to a higher anointing and I have given this handmaiden these words to give to you. I am promoting you to the head of the class. Who are you to say you don’t deserve such a position? Who are you to say you’re not qualified? AM I not the Potter and are you not the clay? Do I not have the right to mold you and use you the way I so choose? I love you and I know you and I know what I put inside of you when I saved you, when I created you and when I called and chose you. Do you care more about your reputation and what mankind thinks of you or what I the creator of all thinks about you?
I ask you to do nothing I have not asked MY other apostles and prophets to do, and that is to obey ME and seek MY will and I will lead and guide you and never forsake you and I equip MY warriors before sending them into the front lines of combat. You never go into a battle, alone, I am there. Nor empty handed or naked. Put on the full armor of God and draw MY sword not yours. Take MY shield of faith and quench the fiery darts that are aimed at you. Beware of Judas’ that come to you in the form of sheep and yet are ravenous wolves. Pray for a greater gift of discernment and never think you have enough of that gift for no human can ever say that they always recognize the face of satan. Beware for the devil knows MY plans for you and he knows where you’re weak and where you’re strong.
When I tell MY children where to walk, you walk. When I tell you where to run, you run. When I tell you what to speak, you speak. When I tell you to be silent, you be silent. When I tell you to stand still, don’t move. When you don’t know what to do, do nothing, until you have peace that “I AM” has spoken. When the enemy reminds you of your past, remind the devil of his future. When the spirit of condemnation attacks you then remember this, I do not condemn you, so who are you to condemn yourself or allow anyone to condemn you? Your sins are as far away as the east is from the west. Picture a fishing hole and realize only you and the devil can go fishing for past sins that I have long ago washed away with MY shed Blood at Calvary. You must put up a no fishing sign there and don’t go fishing there any longer nor allow anyone else to go fishing there. I have paid the price.
Don’t allow the devil to remind you of a past that no longer exists. The old has past away and become new. Let me ask you this, do you rewash clean clothes? Then stop reminding ME of what MY Son YAHUSHUA washed away. You are qualified for the new position I have called and anointed you for. If you doubt this then you’re saying the God you serve makes mistakes and you know more than “I AM” does. Is that what you’re saying? Is the clay going to tell this Potter how to mold and use this vessel of clay? I have anointed you for such a time as this. The time is shorter than you think to share what I have given you to share. All doors are opening now if you will but behold the blessings I have reserved for you and accept what I am giving you.
How can you be lacking any good thing when you are blessed with more anointing and gifts than you have yet even realized? Study and read carefully the scriptures I have told MY ‘Elijah of New’ [in Hebrew, Eliyahu] to give to you. As you have blessed her now she has been told to speak these blessings unto you. Can you not yet discern one another? You two are more alike than you both know. I have chosen to introduce you both for MY purposes and there are no accidental meetings, your ways are not always MY ways, but MY ways are always for your good and no good thing will I withhold from either of you. Both of you stand before ME and both of you have tried to tell the Master Potter how to mold you and use you and both of you have said I am not worthy of such a task.
But I say to both of you, “Of course you’re not worthy by yourselves.” I do not choose the vessels who boast of their worthiness or great value or beauty, nor do I choose those who think themselves more highly then they should, nor choose the vessels who think they are doing ME a favor to be used in such a way. I choose vessels who know by themselves they can do nothing and speak nothing of value unless it is under the anointing of MY RUACH ha KODESH. I do not choose you because you decide to promote yourself and think you’re better than anyone else. I choose you because you know you’re not the best and your wealth, nor lack of it, does not impress ME nor what you have or don’t have, the only thing that impresses ME is the fact that you know with God all things are possible and I choose MY apostles and prophets from those that are least likely to be chosen in the world’s eyes. I choose the least likely to confound those that think themselves wise.
CHUKAT -Statute or Decree
“This is a requirement חֻקַּ֣ת / Chukat – statute of the law -Torah that YAHUVEH has commanded: Tell the Israelites to bring you a red heifer
parah adumah.” (Numbers 19:2)
Last week in Parasha Korach, the Levite Korach incited mutiny against Moses. He and 250 chieftains of Israel questioned the anointed position of Moses as leader and Aaron as high priest.
This week’s Torah portion, called Parasha Chukat, presents the ritual laws of the Parah Adumah (פָרָה אֲדֻמָּה / Red Heifer) and the deaths of Aaron and the prophetess Miriam, Moses and Aaron’s sister.
The Bridge from Impurity to Purity
To purify the Temple vessels and priest, the chosen red heifer a young female cow that has not yet borne a calf was to be blemish and defect free. It also must never have borne a yoke.
It would be slaughtered under the supervision of the Jewish Priest (Cohen), who would then sprinkle its blood seven times toward the Tabernacle. Its body would be burned outside the camp and its ashes used to create the waters of purification.
The waters of purification are necessary to ritually cleanse those who had been contaminated by death through contact with a corpse, bone, or grave. Once purified, they could enter the Tabernacle to draw near to the Living GOD.
In Hebrew, the concepts of clean and unclean or pure –tahor and impure –tamei are akin to an insider and an outsider. Only those who were tahor (clean / pure) could enter the dwelling place of ELOHIM’s presence.
Those who were deemed tamei (unclean / defiled) would be kept outside and, if not purified, would be cut off from Israel — for example, lepers.
Along with the ashes of the Parah Adumah being added to the waters of purification, three other elements were put in: hyssop, cedar wood, and scarlet thread.
These elements were all used in the building of the sanctuary. The hyssop was used by the priests for sprinkling the blood, the cedar wood was used for the posts, and the scarlet thread was used in the curtains.
Though this mysterious mixing — the sacred elements combined with the ashes of the heifer — death and life would come together in order to bring forth cleansing and purification, which would allow a person to cross the bridge from tamei to tahor.
The Brit Chadashah New Testament also speaks of the ashes of the Parah Adumah, promising that the blood of the Messiah has greater power to cleanse our conscience from dead works to serve the Living GOD:
“For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, how much more shall the blood of Messiah, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to ELOHIM, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the Living ELOHIM?” (Hebrews 9:13–14)
Miriam Perishes in the Wilderness
“Then the children of Israel, the whole congregation, came into the Wilderness of Zin in the first month, and the people stayed in Kadesh; and Miriam died there and was buried there.” (Numbers 20:1)
Besides the symbolism of life and death in the waters of purification, this week’s Parasha also provides some details of the death of Moses and Aaron’s sister, Miriam, in the Wilderness of Zin.
Her death occurs about one year before the Israelites enter the Promised Land, and it is also connected to water.
The last time we read about Miriam, she had been stricken with tzara’at –leprosy as a punishment for speaking against Moses’ choice of a Cushite -Ethiopian wife.
The tzara’at caused her to become tamei (defiled / impure), and she was exiled from the camp for the required period of seven days after “Moses cried out to YAHUVEH, ‘Please, ELOHIM, heal her!’” (Numbers 12:13)
Miriam lived many years after this, healed of her leprosy, and apparently never again allowed pride and arrogance to cause her to speak against the leadership of Moses.
Miriam had played an important role in the prophetic fulfillment of YAH’s promise to bring Israel out of Egypt, and two of the biggest highlights involved water.
She was the one who carefully watched over baby Moses as he floated among the reeds of the Nile River in a basket. She bravely intervened and offered her mother’s services as a wet nurse when Pharaoh’s daughter rescued him.
Miriam led the procession of women singing, dancing, and rejoicing with tambourines after ELOHIM safely led the Israelites through the waters of the Red Sea on dry land while drowning the pursuing Egyptians army.
Although Miriam was considered a leader and prophetess, her death is mentioned only briefly in the Scriptures. No mention is made of the usual mourning period. Moses and Aaron buried her in the middle of the night , and it seems that Moses and the people did not mourn her properly.
After Miriam’s death, the people thirsted for water and complained, yet again:
“Why did you bring us up out of Egypt to bring us to this terrible place, a seedless place without a fig or a vine or a pomegranate, without even water to drink?” (Numbers 20:5)
The Well of Miriam
According to Jewish tradition, a water-bearing rock followed the Israelites in the wilderness, but dried up and disappeared at Miriam’s death. First Corinthians 10:1–4 is seen by some to confirm this rock:
“For I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that our fathers were all under the cloud and all passed through the sea; and all were mikvahed [baptized] into Moses in the cloud and in the sea; and all ate the same spiritual food; and all drank the same spiritual drink, for they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them; and the rock was Messiah.”
This rock is YAHUSHUA called the Well of Miriam because the water that flowed from it was based on her merit.
“Miriam died, and the well was taken away so that Israel would recognize that it was through YAHUSHUA grace and mercy that they had the well. Moses and Aaron were weeping inside, and the Children of Israel were weeping outside, and for six hours Moses did not know that the well was gone, until the Children of Israel entered and said to him: For how long will you sit and cry?
“He said to them: Should I not cry for my sister who has died? They said to him: While you are crying for one person, cry for all of us! He said to them: Why? They said to him: We have no water to drink. He got up from the ground and went out and saw the well without a drop of water (in it). He began to argue with them….”
Whether a rock YAHUSHUA followed them, providing water, ELOHIM gave them water wherever they went through other means, He did show mercy for their thirst, telling Moses to speak to the rock to bring forth water.
Nevertheless, before following through on YAH’s command to give them water, Moses responded in anger to their complaining, or perhaps anger at ELOHIM for Miriam’s death, saying, “Listen, you rebels, shall we get water for you out of this rock?” (Numbers 20:10)
There is a play on words in this verse. The Hebrew word for rebels morim מרים is spelled the same as the name Miriam מרים in Hebrew.
It seems that Moses is thinking of his sister Miriam and had not yet properly mourned. He may have misdirected his anger about her death toward the people.
In his anger or frustration, Moses struck the rock twice and water gushed out giving the people water to drink — but ELOHIM had told Moses to speak to the rock, not to strike it.
Moses failed to model obedience at a time when all of Israel was looking to him for leadership.
Therefore, the name of the water was called Meribah which means to argue, strive or contend.
“Those were the waters of Meribah, because the sons of Israel contended with YAHUVEH, and He proved Himself holy among them.” (Numbers 20:13)
This word, Meribah, can also be connected to Miriam. It can be read Meri-bah, which means Miri[yam] is in it—that is, Miriam is in the waters of contention.
Although Miriam’s name means bitterness, it can also be read Miri–yam (Miri of the sea). So, in yet another way, this “woman of the sea” is connected to the waters flowing out of the rock after her death.
Tending to Our Emotions
Although Moses never mentioned Miriam again after her death, and although she seemed to have been buried quickly, without great public ceremony, the memory of her has been irrepressible.
Like Moses’ anger that caused him to disobey ELOHIM and strike the rock, whatever we repress instead of dealing with will ultimately demand attention. And it might be expressed in ways not pleasing to ELOHIM. For instance, we must take the time to properly come to terms with our feelings of loss.
We must take the time to grieve, just as the people did at the end of this Torah reading for Aaron — six months after the death of Miriam.
Perhaps Moses did not take the time or did not have the luxury of that time because of his role as leader or because the people were thirsty.
Furthermore, it seems that Moses might not have brought his pain and disappointment to ELOHIM. In not doing so, he missed an opportunity to model his trust and faith in YAH’s love. Instead, he raged and disobeyed ELOHIM.
If Moses cannot model faith during such times of loss, then it is only natural that many of us will suspect that we cannot. But we can and must.
We can bring to Him our deepest pain, our darkest despair, and our broken hearts. He will cleanse us spiritually from our contact with loss and death, and He will heal us.
May we likewise be healers, allowing rivers of living water to flow freely out of our inner being to help bring people back into a restored relationship with ELOHIM through the purification we experience in YAHUSHUA HaMashiach .
“For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of living water, and YAH will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” (Revelation 7:17)
