Welcome to Parasha EIKEV /Because, this week’s Torah portion.
12 “Because you are listening to these rulings, keeping and obeying them, YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will keep with you the covenant and mercy that he swore to your ancestors. 13 He will love you, bless you and increase your numbers; he will also bless the fruit of your body and the fruit of your ground — your grain, wine, olive oil and the young of your cattle and sheep — in the land he swore to your ancestors that he would give you. 14 You will be blessed more than all other peoples; there will not be a sterile male or female among you, and the same with your livestock. 15 YAHUVEH will remove all illness from you — he will not afflict you with any of Egypt’s dreadful diseases, which you have known; instead, he will lay them on those who hate you. 16 You are to devour all the peoples that YAHUVEH your ELOHIM hands over to you — show them no pity, and do not serve their gods, because that will become a trap for you. 17 If you think to yourselves, ‘These nations outnumber us; how can we dispossess them?’ 18 nevertheless, you are not to be afraid of them; you are to remember well what YAHUVEH your ELOHIM did to Pharaoh and all of Egypt — 19 the great ordeals which you yourself saw, and the signs, wonders, strong hand and outstretched arm by which YAHUVEH your ELOHIM brought you out. YAHUVEH will do the same to all the peoples of whom you are afraid. 20 Moreover, YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will send the hornet among them until those who are left and those who hide themselves perish ahead of you. 21 You are not to be frightened of them, because YAHUVEH your ELOHIM is there with you, a ELOHIM great and fearsome. 22 YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will expel those nations ahead of you little by little; you can’t put an end to them all at once, or the wild animals will become too numerous for you. 23 Nevertheless, YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will give them over to you, sending one disaster after another upon them until they have been destroyed. 24 He will hand their kings over to you, and you will wipe out their name from under heaven; none of them will be able to stand against you until you have destroyed them. 25 You are to burn up completely the carved statues of their gods. Don’t be greedy for the silver or gold on them; don’t take it with you, or you will be trapped by it; for it is abhorrent to YAHUVEH your ELOHIM. 26 Don’t bring something abhorrent into your house, or you will share in the curse that is on it; instead, you are to detest it completely, loathe it utterly; for it is set apart for destruction.
8 “All the mitzvot I am giving you today you are to take care to obey, so that you will live, increase your numbers, enter and take possession of the land YAHUVEH swore about to your ancestors. 2 You are to remember everything of the way in which YAHUVEH led you these forty years in the desert, humbling and testing you in order to know what was in your heart — whether you would obey his mitzvot or not. 3 He humbled you, allowing you to become hungry, and then fed you with man, which neither you nor your ancestors had ever known, to make you understand that a person does not live on food alone but on everything that comes from the mouth of YAHUVEH. 4 During these forty years the clothing you were wearing didn’t grow old, and your feet didn’t swell up. 5 Think deeply about it: YAHUVEH was disciplining you, just as a man disciplines his child. 6 So obey the mitzvot of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, living as he directs and fearing him. 7 For YAHUVEH your ELOHIM is bringing you into a good land, a land with streams, springs and water welling up from the depths in valleys and on hillsides. 8 It is a land of wheat and barley, grapevines, fig trees and pomegranates; a land of olive oil and honey; 9 a land where you will eat food in abundance and lack nothing in it; a land where the stones contain iron and the hills can be mined for copper. 10 So you will eat and be satisfied, and you will bless YAHUVEH your ELOHIM for the good land he has given you.
(ii) 11 “Be careful not to forget YAHUVEH your ELOHIM by not obeying his mitzvot, rulings and regulations that I am giving you today. 12 Otherwise, after you have eaten and are satisfied, built fine houses and lived in them, 13 and increased your herds, flocks, silver, gold and everything else you own, 14 you will become proud-hearted. Forgetting YAHUVEH your ELOHIM — who brought you out of the land of Egypt, where you lived as slaves; 15 who led you through the vast and fearsome desert, with its poisonous snakes, scorpions and waterless, thirsty ground; who brought water out of flint rock for you; 16 who fed you in the desert with man, unknown to your ancestors; all the while humbling and testing you in order to do you good in the end — 17 you will think to yourself, ‘My own power and the strength of my own hand have gotten me this wealth.’ 18 No, you are to remember YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, because it is he who is giving you the power to get wealth, in order to confirm his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as is happening even today. 19 If you forget YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, follow other ELOHIMs and serve and worship them, I am warning you in advance today that you will certainly perish. 20 You will perish just like the nations that YAHUVEH is causing to perish ahead of you, because you will not have heeded the voice of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM.”
9 “Listen, Isra’el! You are to cross the Yarden today, to go in and dispossess nations greater and stronger than you, great cities fortified up to the sky; 2 a people great and tall, the ‘Anakim, whom you know about and of whom you have heard it said, ‘Who can stand before the descendants of ‘Anak?’ 3 Therefore understand today that YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will himself cross ahead of you as a devouring fire; he will destroy them and bring them down before you. Thus will you drive them out and cause them to perish quickly, as YAHUVEH has said to you.
(iii) 4 “Don’t think to yourself, after your ELOHIM has pushed them out ahead of you, ‘It is to reward my righteousness that YAHUVEH has brought me in to take possession of this land.’ No, it is because these nations have been so wicked that YAHUVEH is driving them out ahead of you. 5 It is not because of your righteousness, or because your heart is so upright, that you go in to take possession of their land; but to punish the wickedness of these nations that YAHUVEH your ELOHIM is driving them out ahead of you, and also to confirm the word which YAHUVEH swore to your ancestors, Avraham, Yitz’chak and Ya‘akov. 6 Therefore, understand that it is not for your righteousness that YAHUVEH your ELOHIM is giving you this good land to possess.
“For you are a stiffnecked people! 7 Remember, don’t forget, how you made YAHUVEH your ELOHIM angry in the desert. From the day you left the land of Egypt till you arrived at this place, you have been rebelling against YAHUVEH. 8 Also in Horev you made YAHUVEH angry — YAHUVEH was angry enough with you to destroy you! 9 I had gone up the mountain to receive the stone tablets, the tablets on which was written the covenant YAHUVEH had made with you. I stayed on the mountain forty days and nights without eating food or drinking water. 10 Then YAHUVEH gave me the two stone tablets inscribed by the finger of ELOHIM; and on them was written every word YAHUVEH had said to you from the fire on the mountain the day of the assembly. 11 Yes, after forty days and nights YAHUVEH gave me the two stone tablets, the tablets of the covenant. 12 Then YAHUVEH said to me, ‘Get up, and hurry down from here, because your people, whom you led out of Egypt, have become corrupt. So quickly have they turned aside from the way I ordered them to follow! They have made themselves a metal image!’ 13 Moreover, YAHUVEH said to me, ‘I have seen this people, and what a stiffnecked people they are! 14 Let me alone, so that I can put an end to them and blot out their name from under heaven! I will make out of you a nation bigger and stronger than they.’ 15 I came down from the mountain. The mountain was blazing fire, and the two tablets of the covenant were in my two hands. 16 I looked, and there, you had sinned against YAHUVEH your ELOHIM! You had made yourselves a metal calf, you had turned aside quickly from the way YAHUVEH had ordered you to follow. 17 I seized the two tablets, threw them out of my two hands and broke them before your eyes. 18 Then I fell down before YAHUVEH, as I had the first time, for forty days and nights, during which time I neither ate food nor drank water, all because of the sin you committed by doing what was evil in the sight of YAHUVEH and thus provoking him. 19 I was terrified that because of how angry YAHUVEH was at you, of how heatedly displeased he was, that he would destroy you. But YAHUVEH listened to me that time too. 20 In addition, YAHUVEH was very angry with Aharon and would have destroyed him; but I prayed for Aharon also at the same time. 21 I took your sin, the calf you had made, and burned it up in the fire, beat it to pieces, and ground it up still smaller, until it was as fine as dust; then I threw its dust into the stream coming down from the mountain.
22 “Again at Tav‘erah, Massah and Kivrot-HaTa’avah you made YAHUVEH angry; 23 and when YAHUVEH sent you off from Kadesh-Barnea by saying, ‘Go up and take possession of the land I have given you,’ you rebelled against the order of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM — you neither trusted him nor heeded what he said. 24 You have been rebelling against YAHUVEH from the day I first knew you!
25 “So I fell down before YAHUVEH for those forty days and nights; and I lay there; because YAHUVEH had said he would destroy you. 26 I prayed to YAHUVEH ; I said, ‘YAHUVEH Elohim! Don’t destroy your people, your inheritance! You redeemed them through your greatness, you brought them out of Egypt with a strong hand! 27 Remember your servants Avraham, Yitz’chak and Ya‘akov! Don’t focus on the stubbornness of this people, or on their wickedness or on their sin. 28 Otherwise, the land you brought us out of will say, “It is because YAHUVEH wasn’t able to bring them into the land he promised them and because he hated them that he has brought them out to kill them in the desert.” 29 But in fact they are your people, your inheritance, whom you brought out by your great power and your outstretched arm.’
10 (iv) “At that time YAHUVEH said to me, ‘Cut yourself two stone tablets like the first ones, come up to me on the mountain, and make yourself an ark of wood. 2 I will inscribe on the tablets the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke; and you are to put them in the ark.’ 3 So I made an ark of acacia-wood and cut two stone tablets like the first, then climbed the mountain with the two tablets in my hand. 4 He inscribed the tablets with the same inscription as before, the Ten Words which YAHUVEH proclaimed to you from the fire on the mountain the day of the assembly; and YAHUVEH gave them to me. 5 I turned, came down the mountain and put the tablets in the ark I had made; and there they remain; as YAHUVEH ordered me.
6 “The people of Isra’el traveled from the wells of B’nei-Ya‘akan to Moserah, where Aharon died and was buried; and El‘azar his son took his place, serving in the office of cohen. 7 From there they traveled to GudELOHIM, and from GudELOHIM to Yotvatah, a region with running streams. 8 At that time YAHUVEH set apart the tribe of Levi to carry the ark for the covenant of YAHUVEH and to stand before YAHUVEH to serve him and to bless in his name, as they still do today. 9 This is why Levi has no share or inheritance with his brothers; YAHUVEH is his inheritance, as YAHUVEH your ELOHIM had said to him.
10 “I stayed on the mountain forty days and nights, as previously; and YAHUVEH listened to me that time too — YAHUVEH would not destroy you. 11 Then YAHUVEH said to me, ‘Get up, and go on your way at the head of the people, so that they can enter and take possession of the land I swore to their ancestors that I would give them.’
(v) 12 “So now, Isra’el, all that YAHUVEH your ELOHIM asks from you is to fear YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, follow all his ways, love him and serve YAHUVEH your ELOHIM with all your heart and all your being; 13 to obey, for your own good, the mitzvot and regulations of YAHUVEH which I am giving you today. 14 See, the sky, the heaven beyond the sky, the earth and everything on it all belong to YAHUVEH your ELOHIM. 15 Only YAHUVEH took enough pleasure in your ancestors to love them and choose their descendants after them — yourselves — above all peoples, as he still does today. 16 Therefore, circumcise the foreskin of your heart; and don’t be stiffnecked any longer! 17 For YAHUVEH your ELOHIM is ELOHIM of ELOHIMs and Lord of lords, the great, mighty and awesome ELOHIM, who has no favorites and accepts no bribes. 18 He secures justice for the orphan and the widow; he loves the foreigner, giving him food and clothing. 19 Therefore you are to love the foreigner, since you were foreigners in the land of Egypt. 20 You are to fear YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, serve him, cling to him and swear by his name. 21 He is your praise, and he is your ELOHIM, who has done for you these great and awesome things, which you have seen with your own eyes. 22 Your ancestors went down into Egypt with only seventy people, but now YAHUVEH your ELOHIM has made your numbers as many as the stars in the sky!
11 “Therefore, you are to love YAHUVEH your ELOHIM and always obey his commission, regulations, rulings and mitzvot. 2 Today it is you I am addressing — not your children, who haven’t known or experienced the discipline of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, his greatness, his strong hand, his outstretched arm, 3 his signs and his actions which he did in Egypt to Pharaoh the king of Egypt and to his entire country. 4 They didn’t experience what he did to Egypt’s army, horses and chariots — how YAHUVEH overwhelmed them with the water of the Sea of Suf as they were pursuing you, so that they remain destroyed to this day. 5 They didn’t experience what he kept doing for you in the desert until you arrived at this place; 6 or what he did to Datan and Aviram, the sons of Eli’av the descendant of Re’uven — how the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up, along with their households, tents and every living thing in their company, there in front of all Isra’el. 7 But you have seen with your own eyes all these great deeds of YAHUVEH. 8 Therefore, you are to keep every mitzvah I am giving you today; so that you will be strong enough to go in and take possession of the land you are crossing over to conquer; 9 and so that you will live long in the land YAHUVEH swore to give to your ancestors and their descendants, a land flowing with milk and honey.
(vi) 10 “For the land you are entering in order to take possession of it isn’t like the land of Egypt. There you would sow your seed and had to use your feet to operate its irrigation system, as in a vegetable garden. 11 But the land you are crossing over to take possession of is a land of hills and valleys, which soaks up water when rain falls from the sky. 12 It is a land YAHUVEH your ELOHIM cares for. The eyes of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM are always on it, from the beginning of the year to the end of the year.
13 “So if you listen carefully to my mitzvot which I am giving you today, to love YAHUVEH your ELOHIM and serve him with all your heart and all your being; 14 then, [says YAHUVEH,] ‘I will give your land its rain at the right seasons, including the early fall rains and the late spring rains; so that you can gather in your wheat, new wine and olive oil; 15 and I will give your fields grass for your livestock; with the result that you will eat and be satisfied.’ 16 But be careful not to let yourselves be seduced, so that you turn aside, serving other ELOHIMs and worshipping them. 17 If you do, the anger of YAHUVEH will blaze up against you. He will shut up the sky, so that there will be no rain. The ground will not yield its produce, and you will quickly pass away from the good land YAHUVEH is giving you. 18 Therefore, you are to store up these words of mine in your heart and in all your being; tie them on your hand as a sign; put them at the front of a headband around your forehead; 19 teach them carefully to your children, talking about them when you sit at home, when you are traveling on the road, when you lie down and when you get up; 20 and write them on the door-frames of your house and on your gates — 21 so that you and your children will live long on the land YAHUVEH swore to your ancestors that he would give them for as long as there is sky above the earth.
(vii & Maftir) 22 “For if you will take care to obey all these mitzvot I am giving you, to do them, to love YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, to follow all his ways and to cling to him, 23 then YAHUVEH will expel all these nations ahead of you; and you will dispossess nations bigger and stronger than you are. 24 Wherever the sole of your foot steps will be yours; your territory will extend from the desert to the L’vanon and from the River, the Euphrates River, to the Western Sea. 25 No one will be able to withstand you; YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will place the fear and dread of you on all the land you step on, as he told you.
“But Tziyon says, ‘YAHUVEH has abandoned me,
YAHUVEH has forgotten me.’
Can a woman forget her child at the breast,
not show pity on the child from her womb?
Even if these were to forget,
I would not forget you.
I have engraved you on the palms of my hands,
your walls are always before me.”
Your children are coming quickly,
your destroyers and plunderers are leaving and going.
Raise your eyes, and look around:
they are all gathering and coming to you.
YAHUVEH swears: “As surely as I am alive,
you will wear them all like jewels,
adorn yourself with them like a bride.”
For your desolate places and ruins
and your devastated land
will be too cramped for those living in it;
your devourers will be far away.
The day will come when the children born
when you were mourning will say to you,
“This place is too cramped for me!
Give me room, so I can live!”
Then you will ask yourself,
“Who fathered these for me?
I’ve been mourning my children, alone,
as an exile, wandering to and fro;
so who has raised these?
I was left alone, so where have these come from?”
YAHUVEH Elohim answers:
“I am beckoning to the nations,
raising my banner for the peoples.
They will bring your sons in their arms
and carry your daughters on their shoulders.
Kings will be your foster-fathers,
their princesses your nurses.
They will bow to you, face toward the earth,
and lick the dust on your feet.
Then you will know that I am YAHUVEH —
those who wait for me will not be sorry.”
But can booty be wrested from a warrior?
Can a victor’s captives be freed?
Here is YAHUVEH’s answer:
“Even a warrior’s captives will be snatched away,
and the booty of the fearful will be freed.
I will fight those who fight you,
and I will save your children.
I will feed those oppressing you with their own flesh;
they will be drunk on their own blood as with wine.
Then everyone will know that I, YAHUVEH, am your Savior
and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Ya‘akov.”
50 YAHUVEH says:
“Where is your mother’s divorce document
which I gave her when I divorced her?
Or: to which of my creditors
did I sell you?
You were sold because of your sins;
because of your crimes was your mother divorced.
Why was no one here when I came?
Why, when I called, did nobody answer?
Is my arm too short to redeem?
Have I too little power to save?
With my rebuke I dry up the sea;
I turn rivers into desert,
their fish rot for lack of water
and they die of thirst;
I dress the heavens in black to mourn
and make their covering sackcloth.”
YAHUVEH Elohim has given me
the ability to speak as a man well taught,
so that I, with my words,
know how to sustain the weary.
Each morning he awakens my ear
to hear like those who are taught.
YAHUVEH Elohim has opened my ear,
and I neither rebelled nor turned away.
I offered my back to those who struck me,
my cheeks to those who plucked out my beard;
I did not hide my face
from insult and spitting.
For YAHUVEH Elohim will help.
This is why no insult can wound me.
This is why I have set my face like flint,
knowing I will not be put to shame.
My vindicator is close by;
let whoever dares to accuse me
appear with me in court!
Let whoever has a case against me step forward!
Look, if YAHUVEH Elohim helps me,
who will dare to condemn me?
Here, they are all falling apart
like old, moth-eaten clothes.
Who among you fears YAHUVEH?
Who obeys what his servant says?
Even when he walks in the dark,
without any light,
he will trust in YAHUVEH’s reputation
and rely on his ELOHIM.
But all of you who are lighting fires
and arming yourselves with firebrands:
go, walk in the flame of your own fire,
among the firebrands you lit!
From my hands this [fate] awaits you:
you will lie down in torment.
51 “Listen to me, you pursuers of justice,
you who seek YAHUVEH:
consider the rock from which you were cut,
the quarry from which you were dug —
consider Avraham your father
and Sarah, who gave birth to you;
in that I called him when he was only one person,
then blessed him and made him many.
For YAHUVEH will comfort Tziyon,
will comfort all her ruined places,
will make her desert like ‘Eden,
her ‘Aravah like the garden of YAHUVEH.
Joy and gladness will be there,
thanksgiving and the sound of music.
“Don’t let yourselves be disturbed. Trust in ELOHIM and trust in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many places to live. If there weren’t, I would have told you; because I am going there to prepare a place for you. 3 Since I am going and preparing a place for you, I will return to take you with me; so that where I am, you may be also. 4 Furthermore, you know where I’m going; and you know the way there.”
5 T’oma said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you’re going; so how can we know the way?” 6 YAHUSHUA said, “I AM the Way — and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except through me. 7 Because you have known me, you will also know my Father; from now on, you do know him — in fact, you have seen him.”
8 Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it will be enough for us.” 9 YAHUSHUA replied to him, “Have I been with you so long without your knowing me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Don’t you believe that I am united with the Father, and the Father united with me? What I am telling you, I am not saying on my own initiative; the Father living in me is doing his own works. 11 Trust me, that I am united with the Father, and the Father united with me. But if you can’t, then trust because of the works themselves. 12 Yes, indeed! I tell you that whoever trusts in me will also do the works I do! Indeed, he will do greater ones, because I am going to the Father. 13 In fact, whatever you ask for in my name, I will do; so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask me for something in my name, I will do it.
15 “If you love me, you will keep my commands; 16 and I will ask the Father, and he will give you another comforting Counselor like me, the Spirit of Truth, to be with you forever. 17 The world cannot receive him, because it neither sees nor knows him. You know him, because he is staying with you and will be united with you. 18 I will not leave you orphans — I am coming to you. 19 In just a little while, the world will no longer see me; but you will see me. Because I live, you too will live. 20 When that day comes, you will know that I am united with my Father, and you with me, and I with you. 21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me, and the one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and reveal myself to him.”
22 Y’hudah (not the one from K’riot) said to him, “What has happened, Lord, that you are about to reveal yourself to us and not to the world?” 23 YAHUSHUA answered him, “If someone loves me, he will keep my word; and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. 24 Someone who doesn’t love me doesn’t keep my words — and the word you are hearing is not my own but that of the Father who sent me.
25 “I have told you these things while I am still with you. 26 But the Counselor, the Ruach HaKodesh, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything; that is, he will remind you of everything I have said to you.
27 “What I am leaving with you is shalom — I am giving you my shalom. I don’t give the way the world gives. Don’t let yourselves be upset or frightened. 28 You heard me tell you, ‘I am leaving, and I will come back to you.’ If you loved me, you would have been glad that I am going to the Father; because the Father is greater than I.
29 “Also, I have said it to you now, before it happens; so that when it does happen, you will trust.
30 “I won’t be talking with you much longer, because the ruler of this world is coming. He has no claim on me; 31 rather, this is happening so that the world may know that I love the Father, and that I do as the Father has commanded me.
“Get up! Let’s get going!
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: Out of Faith Flowed Obedience
Prophecy 8 Will You Prove Your Love For ME?
Many souls will come to ME, as I fortify your faith and you go forth in MY Name to do great works in the Name of YAHUSHUA. All will know it is not you but the RUACH ha KODESH anointing that brings forth these manifestations of deliverance and healing and I will use you to speak MY words and you will do it boldly, though many will be offended. They are MY words, not your words; you are not held accountable for what I say. Or the way I think. For MY ways are higher than your ways. Are they not?
I speak not only to you, but again I speak to all the prophets and apostles who minister in MY Name. The way has not been easy nor will it get any easier. But hold on tight to the measure of faith I have given each of you. For it is well above that which will sustain you in this end time.
Fear not, your Bridegroom doth come. Hold on tight to your faith, for although I am quiet I am testing those that proclaim their love for ME. But by feeding, warning MY sheep you will be proving your love for ME. By willing to suffer persecution, hatred, rejection for MY Name sake, you are proving your love for ME. By holding on tight to your faith though with your eyes you can’t see the answer to your prayers, you will be proving your love for ME as you say, “YAHUSHUA even if you never answer another prayer I worship you for who you are, for what you did for me at Calvary.”
This will prove your love for ME, by being willing to lay your reputations down for ME and if need be to sacrifice your lives for the Gospel of YAHUSHUA. This will prove your love for ME, by obeying ME, and seeking ME, and openly confessing and worshipping ME. This will prove your love for ME.
By exposing the wolves in the sheep’s den that come to devour the sheep, by picking up MY sword of the RUACH ha KODESH and defending MY sheep you will prove your love for ME. You say you love ME MY Children? Then by standing for holiness and for right and not wrong, by being conformed to MY image and not that of the world you will prove your love for ME. I end this with one question, “Will you prove your love for ME”?
Prophecy 129 Beware The Wrath Of The Lamb! YAHUSHUA Brings HIS Dividing Sword!
All who will listen and all who will read this new Prophecy and I mean really hear MY Voice as I have spoken forth through Elisheva, a New Wind of Revival-[ YAHUSHUA blows HIS Breath of Revival ]-blows upon you as the Anointing of the RUACH HA KODESH has just now increased upon you.
And you will walk in new blessings. You will walk with renewed faith as you realize I’m no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34). I desire to fellowship with you the way that I do with Ezra & Elisheva.
Just believe! Just have faith! And you too shall walk in signs, wonders and miracles-if, if, if you obey I, YAHUSHUA, if you are putting your ABBA YAHUVEH first in your life and your love and you obey and you repent and you realize satan has a counterfeit. Do not chase after signs wonders and miracles! Instead, I, YAHUSHUA bring them to you.
Torah Portion: Heel of Messiah
Prophecy 122 You Can’t Tear Down The Gates Of Heaven! Thus Saith YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH!
Elisabeth [Elisheva], why are you so amazed? You have had the attention of him [the anti-messiah] for a long time. Who do you think is behind the attacks?This is MY battle! I use AmightyWind! I use MY special Warriors, MY special Bride—but all of you have a protection: all of you wear MY Armor—for I’m right there, by your side. But each time I’ve given you what it takes to overcome! Each time I raise you back up again! And I speak to all those who have been attacked. Where you were weak, I make you stronger! Where you were in fear, I make you bolder!
Oh MY little ones! Do not underestimate the POWER that has been given you to fight against the enemies of your very soul! MY enemies—are your enemies!Your enemies—are MY enemies! So fear not! The war that has been waged against you—although it appears to be coming by human hands—is more than just mere mortal man.

Oh, MY darling ones! You do not even begin to comprehend nor can you understand the MAGNITUDE of the souls you’re reaching—the conviction that comes upon them as, with tear stained faces, they surrender their will and their life to ME.

“Because /eikev you listen to these rules and keep and do them, YAHUVEH your GOD will keep with you the covenant and the steadfast love that HE swore to your fathers. HE will love you, bless you, and multiply you.” (Deuteronomy 7:12–13)
Last week, in Parasha Va’etchanan, Moses predicted that the people in future generations would be exiled from the Promised Land and scattered among the nations because they would turn from YAHUVEH and worship idols. But Moses also foresaw that in the last days they would once again seek HIM and obey HIS commandments.
The title of this week’s Parasha, Eikev, means because. It is used in this Parasha as a conjunction to create a relationship between experiencing YAHUVEH’s blessings and obedience to HIS Torah.
In connection with this, the Haftarah portion this week contains an important prophecy that provides us with added insight into how to walk in the blessings of YAHUVEH — through faith and obedience.
These three — faith, obedience, and blessings — are seen operating in our forefather Abraham, who first believed and then out of faith, obeyed YAHUVEH and was circumcised.
Abraham exemplified the concept that obedience is more than exercising our will over our own flesh; it is faith in action. Out of his faith flowed obedience to YAHUVEH.
In Genesis 15:6, we see that his faith was counted to him as righteousness, and the ancient Hebrew prophet Yeshayahu (Isaiah) beckons us to look to Abraham, our father of faith. We are to be like him; putting faith into action. Then we, too, will experience the blessings that flow from obedience.
“Listen to me, you pursuers of justice, you who seek YAHUVEH: consider the rock from which you were cut, the quarry from which you were dug —consider Abraham your father and Sarah, who gave birth to you …”
Eikev: The Heel of Messiah
The word eikev comes from the verb akav, which means to take by the heel. Similarly, the Hebrew noun akev means heel, as in the heel of a foot. All of these words share the root letters ayin-kof-vet.
ayin-kof-vet to refer to the generation of the “heels of Mashiach (Messiah).”
The last generation of the Exile is called Ikvata d’Meshichah or the Heels of Messiah, since that generation is expected to hear the footsteps of the Messiah.
The word akev is first used in Genesis in an important prophecy: the seed of Chava (Eve) will eventually crush the head of the serpent.
“And I will put enmity between you [the serpent] and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; HE will crush your head, and you will strike HIS heel [akev].” (Genesis 3:15)
This is the first Messianic prophecy in the Bible.
From it we understand that the enemy would attempt to strike at the heel of the Messiah; instead however, our Messiah would crush the enemy’s head and destroy the works of the devil.
“The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the SON of GOD appeared was to destro
y the devil’s work.” (1 John 3:8)
The Promised Land
In today’s climate of rekindled anti-Semitism, many consider it factually or politically incorrect to refer to Israel as the land promised to the Jewish People. The Word of YAHUVEH has no such limitation.
YAHUVEH is LORD of all the earth, but the Land of Israel is unique among the nations; it is not like any other nation of the earth. It is a Land that YAHUVEH cares for and watches over continually.
“The land you are crossing over to take possession of is a land of hills and valleys, which soaks up water when rain falls from the sky. It is a land YAHUVEH your GOD cares for. The eyes of YAHUVEH your GOD are always on it, from the beginning of the year to the end of the year.” (Deuteronomy 11:11–12)
In Parasha Eikev, Moses is continuing his closing address to the Israelites before they cross the Jordan River (which he began at the beginning of Deuteronomy). He tells them that if they are obedient to the Torah, they will prosper in the Land they are about to conquer.
The people are to possess the Land and not fear the nations living there because YAHUVEH would expel them.
“You are to devour all the peoples that YAHUVEH your GOD hands over to you … nevertheless, you are not to be afraid of them; you are to remember well what YAHUVEH your GOD did to Pharaoh and all of Egypt…
“You are not to be frightened of them, because YAHUVEH your GOD is there with you, a GOD great and fearsome. YAHUVEH your GOD will expel those nations ahead of you little by little.” (Deuteronomy 7:16–22)
Even today, Israel is not to fear the people in the Land, for our YAHUVEH is with us to help us, just as HE helped us in ancient times in Egypt and in Israel.
While Israel’s enemies might vastly outnumber her, the Word of YAHUVEH promises that HE will watch over her day and night.
“He who keeps Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps.” (Psalm 121:4)
The plan to destroy Israel is of the enemy, and all those who make themselves YAHUVEH’s enemies will find themselves under the feet of YAHUSHUA Ha MASHIACH . (Psalm 110:1; Hebrews 10:13)
There are those who are not prepared to hear the Biblical truth that YAHUVEH has given the Land of Israel to the Jewish People, but those who know their GOD will stand firmly upon the Rock of YAHUVEH’s Word.
Turning to the Source of Blessing
“I raise my eyes to the hills, from where will my help come? My help comes from YAHUVEH, the maker of Heaven and earth.” (Psalm 121:1–2)
In Israel today, the terrible struggle against terrorism has caused many of YAHUVEH’s people to turn their hearts toward HIM as they search for help and victory.
Throughout the history of Israel, however, we see over and over again that when YAHUVEH blessed the Jewish People, many soon forgot HIM as the source of their blessing and turned away from their devotion and obedience to YAHUVEH.
YAHUVEH said of Gomer, the unfaithful wife of the prophet Hosea, “She doesn’t know it was I who gave her the grain, the wine and the oil; I who increased her silver and gold, which they used for Ba’al.” (Hosea 2:8)
We must always remember that when we prosper in the land that HE gives us, it is YAHUVEH who is the source of our every blessing.
We should never let pride rise in our hearts and think that our own abilities are the source of all that we have and enjoy.
If we understand that what we have has been given to us by YAHUVEH, we are more likely to maintain an attitude of gratitude, and to be good stewards, using our blessings in a way that pleases YAHUVEH.
Each of us today should consider Moses’ warning to the people of Israel:
“You will think to yourself, ‘My own power and the strength of my own hand have gotten me this wealth.’ No, you are to remember YAHUVEH your GOD, because it is HE who is giving you the power to get wealth, in order to confirm HIS covenant, which HE swore to your ancestors, as is happening even today.” (Deuteronomy 8:17–18)
YAHUVEH gives us the power to get wealth in order to confirm HIS covenant. And though it is obedience that releases the blessings of YAHUVEH, HE is after our obedience as HE is our hearts. HE is after both.
True obedience begins with love for YAHUVEH and faith in HIS character.
Therefore, even more than the physical circumcision of covenant, which is of course important, YAHUVEH desires that each one of us be circumcised in our hearts. We cannot only change outwardly, putting on a show of religion, character, or purity; we must change inwardly, becoming soft, pliable clay in the Potter’s hands.
“Circumcise the foreskin of your heart; and don’t be stiff-necked any longer!” (Deuteronomy 10:16)
YAHUVEH promises Israel that the rewards of love and obedience are great. He will drive the nations out of the Promised Land and give the Israelites success against those who are more powerful than they.
If we will love theLORD our GOD and cling to HIM and keep HIS mitzvot /commandments, then HE will faithfully care for us and protect us. What a wonderful assurance we have of HIS love.
“For if you will take care to obey all these commandments [mitzvot] I am giving you, to do them, to love YAHUVEH your GOD, to follow all HIS ways and to cling to HIM, then YAHUVEH will expel all these nations ahead of you; and you will dispossess nations bigger and stronger than you are.” (Deuteronomy 11:22–23)
“‘Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in MY house. Test ME in this,’ says YAHUVEH Almighty, ‘and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.’” (Malachi 3:10)
