Re’eh (See / Behold)
Welcome to Parasha Re’eh (See / Behold), this week’s Torah portion.
26 “See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse — 27 the blessing, if you listen to the mitzvot of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM that I am giving you today; 28 and the curse, if you don’t listen to the mitzvot of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, but turn aside from the way I am ordering you today and follow other ELOHIMs that you have not known.
29 “When YAHUVEH your ELOHIM brings you into the land you are entering in order to take possession of it, you are to put the blessing on Mount G’rizim and the curse on Mount ‘Eival. 30 Both are west of the Yarden, in the direction of the sunset, in the land of the Kena‘ani living in the ‘Aravah, across from Gilgal, near the pistachio trees of Moreh. 31 For you are to cross the Yarden to enter and take possession of the land YAHUVEH your ELOHIM is giving you; you are to own it and live in it. 32 And you are to take care to follow all the laws and rulings I am setting before you today.
12 Here are the laws and rulings you are to observe and obey in the land YAHUVEH, the ELOHIM of your ancestors, has given you to possess as long as you live on earth. 2 You must destroy all the places where the nations you are dispossessing served their ELOHIMs, whether on high mountains, on hills, or under some leafy tree. 3 Break down their altars, smash their standing-stones to pieces, burn up their sacred poles completely and cut down the carved images of their ELOHIMs. Exterminate their name from that place.
4 “But you are not to treat YAHUVEH your ELOHIM this way. 5 Rather, you are to come to the place where YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will put his name. He will choose it from all your tribes; and you will seek out that place, which is where he will live, and go there. 6 You will bring there your burnt offerings, your sacrifices, your tenths [that you set aside for YAHUVEH], the offerings that you give, the offerings you have vowed, your voluntary offerings, and the firstborn of your cattle and sheep. 7 There you will eat in the presence of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM; and you will rejoice over everything you set out to do, you and your households, in which YAHUVEH your ELOHIM has blessed you. 8 You will not do things the way we do them here today, where everyone does whatever in his own opinion seems right; 9 because you haven’t yet arrived at the rest and inheritance which YAHUVEH your ELOHIM is giving you. 10 But when you cross the Yarden and live in the land YAHUVEH your ELOHIM is having you inherit, and he gives you rest from all your surrounding enemies, so that you are living in safety; (ii) 11 then you will bring all that I am ordering you to the place YAHUVEH your ELOHIM chooses to have his name live — your burnt offerings, sacrifices, tenths, the offering from your hand, and all your best possessions that you dedicate to YAHUVEH; 12 and you will rejoice in the presence of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM — you, your sons and daughters, your male and female slaves and the Levi staying with you, inasmuch as he has no share or inheritance with you.
13 “Be careful not to offer your burnt offerings just anywhere you see, 14 but do it in the place YAHUVEH will choose in one of your tribal territories; there is where you are to offer your burnt offerings and do everything I order you to do. 15 However, you may slaughter and eat meat wherever you live and whenever you want, in keeping with the degree to which YAHUVEH your ELOHIM has blessed you. The unclean and the clean may eat it, as if it were gazelle or deer. 16 But don’t eat the blood; pour it out on the ground like water.
17 “You are not to eat on your own property the tenth of your grain, new wine or olive oil [that you set aside for YAHUVEH], or the firstborn of your cattle or sheep, or any offering you have vowed, or your voluntary offering, or the offering from your hand. 18 No, you are to eat these in the presence of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM in the place YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will choose — you and your sons, daughters, male and female slaves, and the Levi who is your guest; and you are to rejoice before YAHUVEH your ELOHIM in everything you undertake to do. 19 As long as you are living on your property, take care not to abandon the Levi.
20 “When YAHUVEH your ELOHIM expands your territory, as he has promised you, and you say, ‘I want to eat meat,’ simply because you want to eat meat, then you may eat meat, as much as you want. 21 If the place which YAHUVEH your ELOHIM chooses to place his name is too far away from you; then you are to slaughter animals from your cattle or sheep, which YAHUVEH has given you; and eat on your own property, as much as you want. 22 Eat it as you would gazelle or deer; the unclean and clean alike may eat it. 23 Just take care not to eat the blood, for the blood is the life, and you are not to eat the life with the meat. 24 Don’t eat it, but pour it out on the ground like water. 25 Do not eat it, so that things will go well with you and with your children after you, as you do what YAHUVEH sees as right. 26 Only the things set aside for ELOHIM which you have, and the vows you have vowed to make, you must take and go to the place which YAHUVEH will choose. 27 There you will offer your burnt offerings, the meat and the blood, on the altar of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM. The blood of your sacrifices is to be poured out on the altar of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, and you will eat the meat. 28 Obey and pay attention to everything I am ordering you to do, so that things will go well with you and with your descendants after you forever, as you do what YAHUVEH sees as good and right.
(iii) 29 “When YAHUVEH your ELOHIM has cut off ahead of you the nations you are entering in order to dispossess, and when you have dispossessed them and are living in their land; 30 be careful, after they have been destroyed ahead of you, not to be trapped into following them; so that you inquire after their ELOHIMs and ask, ‘How did these nations serve their ELOHIMs? I want to do the same.’ 31 You must not do this to YAHUVEH your ELOHIM! For they have done to their ELOHIMs all the abominations that YAHUVEH hates! They even burn up their sons and daughters in the fire for their ELOHIMs!
13 (12:32) “Everything I am commanding you, you are to take care to do. Do not add to it or subtract from it.
2 (1) “If a prophet or someone who gets messages while dreaming arises among you and he gives you a sign or wonder, 3 (2) and the sign or wonder comes about as he predicted when he said, ‘Let’s follow other ELOHIMs, which you have not known; and let us serve them,’ 4 (3) you are not to listen to what that prophet or dreamer says. For YAHUVEH your ELOHIM is testing you, in order to find out whether you really do love YAHUVEH your ELOHIM with all your heart and being. 5 (4) You are to follow YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, fear him, obey his mitzvot, listen to what he says, serve him and cling to him; 6 (5) and that prophet or dreamer is to be put to death; because he urged rebellion against YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, who brought you out of the land of Egypt and redeemed you from a life of slavery; in order to seduce you away from the path YAHUVEH your ELOHIM ordered you to follow. This is how you are to rid your community of this wickedness.
7 (6) “If your brother the son of your mother, or your son, or your daughter, or your wife whom you love, or your friend who means as much to you as yourself, secretly tries to entice you to go and serve other ELOHIMs, which you haven’t known, neither you nor your ancestors — 8 (7) ELOHIMs of the peoples surrounding you, whether near or far away from you, anywhere in the world — 9 (8) you are not to consent, and you are not to listen to him; and you must not pity him or spare him; and you may not conceal him. 10 (9) Rather, you must kill him! Your own hand must be the first one on him in putting him to death, and afterwards the hands of all the people. 11 (10) You are to stone him to death; because he has tried to draw you away from YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of a life of slavery. 12 (11) Then all Isra’el will hear about it and be afraid, so that they will stop doing such wickedness as this among themselves.
13 (12) “If you hear it told that in one of your cities which YAHUVEH your ELOHIM is giving you to live in, 14 (13) certain scoundrels have sprung up among you and have drawn away the inhabitants of their city by saying, ‘Let’s go and serve other ELOHIMs, which you haven’t known,’ 15 (14) then you are to investigate the matter, inquiring and searching diligently. If the rumor is true, if it is confirmed that such detestable things are being done among you, 16 (15) you must put the inhabitants of that city to death with the sword, destroying it completely with the sword, everything in it, including its livestock. 17 (16) Heap all its spoils in an open space, and burn the city with its spoils to the ground for YAHUVEH your ELOHIM; it will remain a tel forever and not be built again — 18 (17) none of what has been set apart for destruction is to stay in your hands. Then YAHUVEH will turn from his fierce anger and show you mercy, have compassion on you and increase your numbers, as he swore to your ancestors — 19 (18) provided you listen to what YAHUVEH says and obey all his mitzvot that I am giving you today, thus doing what YAHUVEH your ELOHIM sees as right.
14 (iv) “You are the people of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM. You are not to gash yourselves or shave the hair above your foreheads in mourning for the dead, 2 because you are a people set apart as holy for YAHUVEH your ELOHIM. YAHUVEH your ELOHIM has chosen you to be his own unique treasure out of all the peoples on the face of the earth.
3 “You are not to eat anything disgusting. 4 The animals which you may eat are: ox, sheep, goat, 5 deer, gazelle, roebuck, ibex, antelope, oryx and mountain sheep. 6 Any animal that has a separate hoof that is completely divided and also chews the cud, these animals you may eat. 7 But you are not to eat those that only chew the cud or only have a divided hoof. For example, the camel, the hare and the coney are unclean for you because they chew the cud but don’t have a separate hoof; 8 while the pig is unclean for you because, although it has a separate hoof, it doesn’t chew the cud. You are not to eat meat from these or touch their carcasses.
9 “Of all that lives in the water, you may eat these: anything in the water that has fins and scales, these you may eat. 10 But whatever lacks fins and scales you are not to eat; it is unclean for you.
11 “You may eat any clean bird; 12 but these you are not to eat: eagles, vultures, ospreys, 13 kites, any kind of buzzard, 14 any kind of raven, 15 ostriches, screech-owls, seagulls, any kind of hawk, 16 little owls, great owls, horned owls, 17 pelicans, barn owls, cormorants, 18 storks, any kind of heron, hoopoes and bats.
19 “All winged swarming creatures are unclean for you; they are not to be eaten; 20 but all clean flying creatures you may eat.
21 “You are not to eat any animal that dies naturally; although you may let a stranger staying with you eat it, or sell it to a foreigner; because you are a holy people for YAHUVEH your ELOHIM.
“You are not to boil a young animal in its mother’s milk.
(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.
“Heaven is my throne,” says YAHUVEH,
“and the earth is my footstool.
What kind of house could you build for me?
What sort of place could you devise for my rest?
Didn’t I myself make all these things?
This is how they all came to be,”
“The kind of person on whom I look with favor
is one with a poor and humble spirit,
who trembles at my word.
Those others might as well kill a person as an ox,
as well break a dog’s neck as sacrifice a lamb,
as well offer pig’s blood as offer a grain offering,
as well bless an idol as burn incense.
Just as these have chosen their ways
and enjoy their disgusting practices,
so I will enjoy making fools of them,
and bring on them the very things they fear.
For when I called, no one answered;
when I spoke, they did not hear.
Instead they did what was evil in my sight
and chose what did not please me.”
Hear the word of YAHUVEH,
you who tremble at his word:
“Your brothers, who hate you and reject you
because of my name, have said:
‘Let YAHUVEH be glorified,
so we can see your joy.’
But they will be put to shame.”
That uproar in the city,
that sound from the temple,
is the sound of YAHUVEH repaying
his foes what they deserve.
Before going into labor, she gave birth;
before her pains came, she delivered a male child.
Who ever heard of such a thing?
Who has ever seen such things?
Is a country born in one day?
Is a nation brought forth all at once?
For as soon as Tziyon went into labor,
she brought forth her children.
“Would I let the baby break through
and not be born?” asks YAHUVEH.
“Would I, who cause the birth,
shut the womb?” asks your ELOHIM.
Rejoice with Yerushalayim!
Be glad with her, all you who love her!
Rejoice, rejoice with her,
all of you who mourned for her;
so that you nurse and are satisfied
by her comforting breast,
drinking deeply and delighting
in the overflow of her glory.
For YAHUVEH says, “I will spread shalom
over her like a river,
and the wealth of nations
like a flooding stream;
you will nurse and be carried in her arm
and cuddled in her lap.
Like someone comforted by his mother,
I will comfort you;
you will be comforted.”
Your heart will rejoice at the sight,
your bodies will flourish like newly sprouted grass.
It will be known that the hand of YAHUVEH
is with his servants; but with his enemies, his fury.
For — look! — YAHUVEH will come in fire,
and his chariots will be like the whirlwind,
to render his anger furiously,
his rebuke with blazing fire.
For YAHUVEH will judge all humanity
with fire and with the sword,
and those slain by YAHUVEH will be many.
“Those who consecrate and purify themselves
in order to enter the gardens,
then follow the one who was already there,
eating pig meat, reptiles and mice,
will all be destroyed together,” says YAHUVEH.
“For I [know] their deeds and their thoughts.
“[The time] is coming when I will gather together all nations and languages. They will come and see my glory, 19 and I will give them a sign. I will send some of their survivors to the nations of Tarshish, Pul, Lud (these are archers), Tuval, Greece and more distant coasts, where they have neither heard of my fame nor seen my glory. They will proclaim my glory in these nations; 20 and they will bring all your kinsmen out of all the nations as an offering to YAHUVEH — on horses, in chariots, in wagons, on mules, on camels — to my holy mountain Yerushalayim,” says YAHUVEH, “just as the people of Isra’el themselves bring their offerings in clean vessels to the house of YAHUVEH. 21 I will also take cohanim and L’vi’im from them,” says YAHUVEH.
22 “For just as the new heavens and the new earth that I am making will continue in my presence,” says YAHUVEH, “so will your descendants and your name continue.
“Every month on Rosh-Hodesh
and every week on Shabbat,
everyone living will come
to worship in my presence,” says YAHUVEH.
“As they leave, they will look on the corpses
of the people who rebelled against me.
For their worm will never die,
and their fire will never be quenched;
but they will be abhorrent
to all humanity.”
[“Every month on Rosh-Hodesh
and every week on Shabbat,
everyone living will come
to worship in my presence,” says YAHUVEH.]
Numbers 28:9-15; Shabbat Rosh Chodesh:
9 “‘On Shabbat offer two male lambs in their first year and without defect, with one gallon of fine flour as a grain offering, mixed with olive oil, and its drink offering. 10 This is the burnt offering for every Shabbat, in addition to the regular burnt offering and its drink offering.
11 “‘At each Rosh-Hodesh of yours, you are to present a burnt offering to YAHUVEH consisting of two young bulls, one ram and seven male lambs in their first year and without defect; 12 with six quarts of fine flour mixed with olive oil as a grain offering for the one ram; 13 and two quarts of fine flour mixed with olive oil as a grain offering for each lamb. This will be the burnt offering giving a fragrant aroma, an offering made by fire for YAHUVEH. 14 Their drink offerings will be two quarts of wine for a bull, one-and-one-third quarts for the ram, and one quart for each lamb. This is the burnt offering for every Rosh-Hodesh throughout the months of the year. 15 Also a male goat is to be offered as a sin offering to YAHUVEH, in addition to the regular burnt offering and its drink offering.
7 “Keep asking, and it will be given to you; keep seeking, and you will find; keep knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who keeps asking receives; he who keeps seeking finds; and to him who keeps knocking, the door will be opened. 9 Is there anyone here who, if his son asks him for a loaf of bread, will give him a stone? 10 or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 So if you, even though you are bad, know how to give your children gifts that are good, how much more will your Father in heaven keep giving good things to those who keep asking him!
12 “Always treat others as you would like them to treat you; that sums up the teaching of the Torah and the Prophets.
13 “Go in through the narrow gate; for the gate that leads to destruction is wide and the road broad, and many travel it; 14 but it is a narrow gate and a hard road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
15 “Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep’s clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! 16 You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise, every healthy tree produces good fruit, but a poor tree produces bad fruit. 18 A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, or a poor tree good fruit. 19 Any tree that does not produce good fruit is cut down and thrown in the fire! 20 So you will recognize them by their fruit.
21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, only those who do what my Father in heaven wants. 22 On that Day, many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord! Didn’t we prophesy in your name? Didn’t we expel demons in your name? Didn’t we perform many miracles in your name?’ 23 Then I will tell them to their faces, ‘I never knew you! Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness!’[a]
24 “So, everyone who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a sensible man who built his house on bedrock. 25 The rain fell, the rivers flooded, the winds blew and beat against that house, but it didn’t collapse, because its foundation was on rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not act on them will be like a stupid man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain fell, the rivers flooded, the wind blew and beat against that house, and it collapsed — and its collapse was horrendous!”
28 When YAHUSHUA had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at the way he taught, 29 for he was not instructing them like their Torah-teachers but as one who had authority himself.
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: Staying On The Path Of Blessings During Trials
Prophecy 7 Hang On Tight To The Hem of MY Garment!
The Hem of MY garment, it’s not enough to just touch it anymore. Keep knocking at MY door, then when the answer doesn’t come fast enough, pound. When you get weary, keep on asking, seeking and ye shall find, but don’t stop till you hear from Heaven.
For I have promised you MY Children, bread and not the crumbs of this world. For you see judgment has come to the house of YAHUVEH and it’s not as easy as touching MY hem, or knocking softly for your answers, you better be prepared it may take wrestling for your blessing, like Jacob. But it only proves your faith and makes it stronger, which is needed in these end times. So keep on saying no more crumbs. You will not be denied. For you’re the Blood bought Bride of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH.
I will answer and deliver you. I do not lie. For you are promised not the crumbs of this world, but the bread of life, the children’s bread of healing, deliverance, prosperity, life abundantly and full of glory. For YAHUSHUA is your Bread of Life and I want to see if you will still praise ME, and hang on to your faith though I don’t answer right away. I am not always a microwave God.
Yes, I know about microwaves, who do you think gave you the invention? You have scripture to stand on, read Matthew 15: 22-28 about a Canaanite woman’s faith. She was worshipping YAHUSHUA, yet he ignored her, let the disciples rebuke her, call her a dog, said the blessing was for another not her. You say, “Why YAHUSHUA, why would you have done all this?” Because in these last days, all of this will happen to MY most faithful followers, those that worship ME, this will be done by others in MY Name.
You will be insulted, rejected, persecuted, yet if you continue to hold on to your faith, though I don’t rescue right away, then like this Canaanite woman you will be rewarded. For I will see how great your faith is. For in these end-times I am preparing MY body in this way, when I come again how many will have hung on to their faith? How many will turn away when they call out in prayer for a need and I don’t answer right away?
You must tell them to be willing to wrestle with ME for their blessing like Jacob did. For I desire to bless. I only want to test and see how badly you want this blessing. Will you still worship ME when I don’t answer right away? It’s not MY chastisement that is causing this, for the woman fell and worshipped at MY feet. You are worshipping at MY feet. But judgment has started at the house of YAHUVEH and one of the things I am testing is how strong is your faith?
How loyal and how much will you rely on ME? Like the Canaanite woman, your faith and loyalty will be rewarded for you shall see what you desire, and even more exceedingly and more abundantly will I shower down MY blessings like a river overflowing. You will have so much joy. And I will bless you so much. You will be forced to give unto others. Hold on tight to the hem of MY garment. Don’t let go. Keep knocking till the door opens to your blessings you have asked for. I will answer eventually. Lean not unto thy own understanding but in all thy ways acknowledge ME and I shall direct your paths.
Remember the trials of your faith are more precious than gold. Keep your eyes on your Savior and not on the turbulence of the sea or the waves will drown you. But I am here to save you. For I am your Savior and redeemer am I not? I will not fail you nor forsake you. I know how much pressure to put on the clay before it breaks, how much fire to allow you to go through before you get consumed. The waves of despair will not drown you. For I am here to rescue and deliver not only your soul, but mind, body and Spirit. Trust ME and ye shall see it come to pass. Then remember who delivered you ’twas no man or woman, but your God who created you.
Yet it is I who will answer your call, for I know what you want even before you ask. In the spiritual realm it is finished, I am only waiting for MY perfect timing to manifest in the physical realm. Your faith helps this to come forth. Does not MY Word say it’s impossible to please YAHUVEH without faith? You please ME by showing your faith in a God who cares and hears and knows all.
Prophecy 70 What Will YAHUVEH Do When Calamity Comes Knocking At Your Door?
I, YAHUVEH, have been taking note of who is blessing this ministry and sowing financial seed now and who is hindering you by only watching to see if and when I perform this financial miracle for the miracle bus. I, YAHUVEH, tell you this, I have used this as a test to the people who know that I, YAHUVEH, speak forth from you as my anointed vessel. This ministry has been there to comfort and encourage and warn the children who call themselves mine and now when this ministry needs encouragement and blessings I am taking note who is blessing you and who is not. How few have even joined you in this prayer and anointed fast when it is for their sakes also you do this, as well as standing in the gap for the nations and for MY mercy to delay MY wrath. I have watched those who are watching and not helping this ministry financially or even offered up a prayer in your behalf.
The time is coming oh so quickly when those that sat back and watched and did nothing will see I, YAHUVEH, sit back and watch and do nothing as calamity comes knocking on their doors. For those that help this ministry and have helped it when calamity comes knocking at your door, I shall have MY angels guard and protect and cover you with MY anointed dome where evil shall not touch you. I have said many times I use this ministry as a barometer how well people are listening to MY RUACH ha KODESH MY HOLY SPIRIT?
Some reading this think they are wealthy, have no need of anything but I tell you that you are wretched and naked before I, YAHUVEH, and YAHUSHUA’s eyes. Some reading this say, “I have my treasures here on earth, possessions, real estate and bank accounts,” but I tell you that you are bankrupt in Heaven. Some build up there credit here on earth, but I tell you that you have no credit when it comes to the evil times ahead and MY ears shall not hear you call out to ME, it shall be in vain.
I have anointed this handmaiden to call forth the assembly to fast and pray for a greater anointing and protection for the evil times that are not far off. Those who hear MY voice in this ministry are obeying and going hungry in this fast, but those who knowingly eat and have their fill now, when I have called forth a Holy fast, shall go hungry, while these that go hungry now I, YAHUVEH, shall feed when the time of need comes. Those that hide their wallets, purses and checkbooks now, are stingy with what they can see with their eyes, will find that when the time of need arises I shall also give you back what you have given.
MY Daughter again I remind you, I use you as a Jer 6:27-30 test. I know it is not easy but MY will shall be done. I shall bless you and all those that have been obedient and sacrificed and not just watched, but joined in this anointed fast and prayer and sowed Holy seed into this ministry need. Those that do not help MY Ministry and Ministers are against MY Ministry and Ministers. Again and again you have heard, “The harvest is great and the laborers few,” and yet still you do not come forward. Be warned, I am watching who are merely watching, be ye doers of the word not merely hearers or readers of it.
Those who have fasted and cast their curses against this Minister and Ministry, you who have cast your curses of lack against this ministry, know this, your curses have only returned back unto your own bosom! You are trying to curse what I have blessed, you are fighting against the God of all Creation and I am not amused.
Torah Portion: Choosing The Path To Eternal Life
Prophecy 95 YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH Says, Pick Up Your Weapon, I Am ALIVE!
How many I see and they no longer fear. They stay in their sin. They take the communion cup with sinful lips. I am faithful to forgive. But never do this with an unrepentent heart for you’re only drinking damnation. You are only drinking of curses. Come to ME with a repentent heart. Ask ME to forgive you of your sins. I am faithful and I am merciful and just one drop of MY Blood, just one drop of MY Blood can save all of humanity if they had just received ME. Just one drop of MY Blood. And look how much more I gave. This is what I want you to tell them. This is the new Message I give you. This is the Message that is meant to be before the world. This is the only weapon you have. Tell them, “Thus saith YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH,” as you see the weapons pointed at you in so many different directions, lift up the only weapon I have given you.
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.
You see these preachers fall by the wayside. You see them betray the sheep and the lambs. You see them preaching another gospel than what I planned. But as they betray ME now, they betrayed ME then. For I tell you something in Truth that you did not know and even now Elisabeth (Elisheva) you struggle to speak forth these Words, but there is no such thing as a new soul. For all of earth and all of earth’s time have been filled with old souls. This is why I know the number of hairs on each of your heads. This is why I know each one of your names, be they friend or foe. This is why I know when I chose MY Bride on earth, I already know who was loyal in Heaven. This why I know and I let Jeremiah know as he was formed in his mother’s womb, as each day of his life was charted out, I knew that I had ordained him as a prophet because I knew who I can trust.
Beware! Beware! Beware! Beware! Beware oh Sheep and Lambs of MINE, of those who puff themselves up with fame and fortune and fill your airwaves. Beware! Beware! Beware! Beware of those who refuse to preach the Message of repentence, who do not live the life of repentence, refuse to live a life of Holiness, refuse to warn the sinners of sin. Beware! Beware! Beware! Beware, oh Sheep and Lambs! For these are not MINE and as they betrayed ME before, they betray ME now again! Oh pastors of greed, you know you don’t belong to ME! You are a farce! You are a fake! MY SPIRIT’S not in you! I’ve named the names before through this Ministry! And there’s so many more that I have not named. But watch them oh Sheep and Lambs. Have they sold their soul like a common whore just to get the tax exempt status? Beware, MY Sheep and Lambs, of those who try to put all the religions together as one! Of the One World Religion! There is but one YAH. You have but ONE CREATOR. YAHUVEH is HIS Name. Others pronounce it YAHWEH. But there is but ONE. There is but ONE MASHIACH. MY Name is YAHUSHUA. Call ME YAHSHUA. But don’t take the Name YAH out and think you’re hearing from MY SPIRIT.
“See (רְאֵה Re’eh),” says Moses to the people of Israel, “I place before you today a blessing and a curse: the blessing, if you obey the commandments of YAHUVEH your GOD which I command you today; and the curse, if you do not obey the commandments of YAHUVEH your GOD, but turn aside from the way which I command you today, to go after other gods which you have not known.” (Deuteronomy 11:26–28)
Last week in Parasha Eikev, Moses promised the Israelites that if they were obedient to the commands of the Torah, they would prosper in the Promised Land.
This week, as the children of Israel stand poised to cross over into the Jordan, YAHUVEH sets before the people two separate and distinct directions: a way of blessing if they choose to obey YAHUVEH’s commandments and a way of cursing if they choose to walk in disobedience to those laws.
These two directions, the blessing and the curse, are to be proclaimed on two mountaintops in the Land: Mount Gerizim and Mount Ebal.
“Now it shall be, when YAHUVEH your GOD has brought you into the land which you go to possess, that you shall put the blessing on Mount Gerizim and the curse on Mount Ebal.” (Deuteronomy 11:29)
Each one of us has been given this same choice to follow HIM or not; in fact, the entire direction of our lives depends on which path we choose— the path of HIS blessing or of HIS curse.
YAHUSHUA the Messiah also told us of two paths — the narrow path that leads to life — and the broad path that leads to destruction. Sadly, it seems that few choose the narrow path. Most walk that broad path of destruction.
“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” (Matthew 7:13–14)
Why does YAHUSHUA, who is the Gate to salvation, tell us that the path of blessing is difficult, and that few enter HIS gate?
Because each day, we have to make hard choices between what our carnal nature desires and what is in alignment with the RUACH HA KODESH (Holy Spirit). To obey YAHUVEH requires that we crucify the desires of our flesh.
“I have been crucified with Messiah. It is no longer I who live, but Messiah who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the SON of GOD, who loved me and gave HIMSELF for me.” (Galatians 2:20)
Staying on the Path of Blessing During Trials
Sadly, human pride, love of sin, and opposition from spiritual forces of darkness keep many walking the broad path of destruction, preventing them from entering into a life of blessing through obedience to YAHUVEH.
As well, too many new Believers think that coming to faith in YAHUSHUA and living a life of obedience to YAHUVEH are supposed to make all the problems and trials of life disappear.
YAHUSHUA did not promise this. In fact, HE assured us that in this life we will have trouble. HE HIMSELF was persecuted, as were HIS followers.
Despite that, we need not be discouraged. We can be of good cheer, joyful in the LORD, for HE has overcome the world.
“I have told you these things, so that in ME you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
“In all these things we are more than conquerors through HIM who
loved us.” (Romans 8:37)
Choosing to obey YAHUVEH’s commandments in times of trouble is not always easy, especially when the whole world seems to be going in a different direction.
Going against the current can take a great deal of exertion and determination — whether for spawning salmon or for people desiring to live a righteous life. It takes effort to swim against the current.
Even simply making the choice to obey YAHUVEH can be excruciatingly painful. YAHUSHUA experienced this in the Garden of Gethsemane when facing the choice to submit to YAHUVEH even to the point of death on the tree.
It was here, in the dark valley of decision that the battle was won, when YAHUSHUA said, “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from ME; yet not MY will, but YOURS be done.”
This decision was so agonizing for YAHUSHUA that HE seemed to sweat drops of blood: “Being in an agony HE prayed more earnestly; and HIS sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.” (Luke 22:44)
We may not actually sweat drops of blood, but we may come to a crossroad in our lives where we must also decide whether to obey YAHUVEH’s will or to choose our own way — and the cost may seem beyond our ability to bear. But YAHUVEH has promised that HIS grace is sufficient for us in every circumstance.
Choosing to obey YAHUVEH will lead to blessing; however, we may not receive our full reward until Heaven.
For that reason, we must always live with an eternal perspective, not allowing the trials of life to weaken our faith.
“Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which YAHUVEH has promised to those who love him.”
The Steps on the Path of Blessing
“For you are a holy people to YAHUVEH your GOD, and YAHUVEH has chosen you to be a people for HIMSELF, a special treasure above all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.” (Deuteronomy 14:2)
This Parasha emphasizes that the path of blessing includes not following false gods or false prophets. All elements of pagan worship must be purged from our lifestyle so that we may be the holy people that YAHUVEH has called us to be.
The narrow way described in Re’eh includes YAHUVEH’s commandments regarding the consumption of clean and unclean animals: “You shall not eat any detestable thing.” (Deuteronomy 14:3)
Although many Christians consider these dietary commands abolished, YAHUSHUA did not support this kind of thinking.
He made this astounding statement: “Don’t assume that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill…. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commands and teaches people to do so will be called least in the kingdom of heaven. But whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:17–19)
The path of blessing also includes giving tithes to the Levites, who were dependent on the people for their livelihood:
“You shall not forsake the Levite who is within your gates, for he has no part nor inheritance with you.” (Deuteronomy 14:27)
Generosity toward the poor is also important.
YAHUVEH said we are to open our hand and our heart to give to the poor in our land:
“If there is among you a poor man of your brethren, within any of the gates in your land which YAHUVEH your GOD is giving you, you shall not harden your heart nor shut your hand from your poor brother, but you shall open your hand wide to him and willingly lend him sufficient for his need, whatever he needs.” (Deuteronomy 15:7–8)
Prosperity and financial blessing are not simply the result of working hard. Neither is it owed to us because we are Believers.
It is dependent upon exercising the spiritual principles of sowing and reaping. As we give, it will be given back to us (Luke 6:38).
YAHUVEH will bless us as we sow generous seeds in giving to the poor and to YAHUVEH’s faithful servants.
“You shall surely give to him, and your heart should not be grieved when you give to him, because for this thing YAHUVEH your GOD will bless you in all your works and in all to which you put your hand.” (Deuteronomy 15:10)
Choosing the Path to Eternal Life
“But HE was wounded for our transgressions, HE was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon HIM; and with HIS stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5)
One of the most important choices each one of us must make is whether or not to receive YAHUSHUA the Messiah as the atonement for all of our sins and through HIM receive eternal life.
Our Messianic redemption (liberation / salvation / entrance into eternal life) is not something that we simply read about or hear preached. It is a not-so-distant reality.
When YAHUSHUA returns, HE will come on the clouds and every eye will see (Re’eh) HIM.
“Behold, HE is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see HIM, even those who pierced HIM; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over HIM. So it is to be. Amen.”
This New Covenant Scripture about the Second Coming of the Messiah is founded on several Messianic prophecies in which the Hebrew prophets also foresee YAHUVEH coming with the clouds:
“A prophecy against Egypt: See, YAHUSHUA rides on a swift cloud and is coming to Egypt. The idols of Egypt tremble before HIM, and the hearts of the Egyptians melt with fear.” (Isaiah 19:1)
“In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a SON of adam, coming with the clouds of heaven. HE approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence.” (Daniel 7:13)
One day, we will all see the SON of GOD coming on the clouds with great power and glory! Until that day comes, may we choose to faithfully and diligently walk on the path of blessing, keeping HIS commandments and teaching others to do the same.
“Blessed rather are those who hear the word of YAHUVEH and obey it.” (Luke 11:28)
Shabbat Shalom from AMIGHTYWIND!
