Ki Tavo /When You Enter
Welcome to Parasha Ki Tavo /When You Enter, this week’s Torah portion.
Deuteronomy 26:1–29:9 (8);
26 “When you have come to the land YAHUVEH your ELOHIM is giving you as your inheritance, taken possession of it and settled there; 2 you are to take the firstfruits of all the crops the ground yields, which you will harvest from your land that YAHUVEH your ELOHIM is giving you, put them in a basket and go to the place where YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will choose to have his name live. 3 You will approach the cohen holding office at the time and say to him, ‘Today I declare to YAHUVEH your ELOHIM that I have come to the land YAHUVEH swore to our ancestors that he would give us.’ 4 The cohen will take the basket from your hand and put it down in front of the altar of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM.
5 “Then, in the presence of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, you are to say, ‘My ancestor was a nomad from Aram. He went down into Egypt few in number and stayed. There he became a great, strong, populous nation. 6 But the Egyptians treated us badly; they oppressed us and imposed harsh slavery on us. 7 So we cried out to YAHUVEH, the ELOHIM of our ancestors. YAHUVEH heard us and saw our misery, toil and oppression; 8 and YAHUVEH brought us out of Egypt with a strong hand and a stretched-out arm, with great terror, and with signs and wonders. 9 Now he has brought us to this place and given us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey. 10 Therefore, as you see, I have now brought the firstfruits of the land which you, YAHUVEH, have given me.’ You are then to put the basket down before YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, prostrate yourself before YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, 11 and take joy in all the good that YAHUVEH your ELOHIM has given you, your household, the Levi and the foreigner living with you.
(ii) 12 “After you have separated a tenth of the crops yielded in the third year, the year of separating a tenth, and have given it to the Levi, the foreigner, the orphan and the widow, so that they can have enough food to satisfy them while staying with you; 13 you are to say, in the presence of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, ‘I have rid my house of the things set aside for ELOHIM and given them to the Levi, the foreigner, the orphan and the widow, in keeping with every one of the mitzvot you gave me. I haven’t disobeyed any of your mitzvot or forgotten them. 14 I haven’t eaten any of this food when mourning, I haven’t put any of it aside when unclean, nor have I given any of it for the dead. I have listened to what YAHUVEH my ELOHIM has said, and I have done everything you ordered me to do. 15 Look out from your holy dwelling-place, from heaven; and bless your people Isra’el and the land you gave us, as you swore to our ancestors, a land flowing with milk and honey.’
(iii) 16 “Today YAHUVEH your ELOHIM orders you to obey these laws and rulings. Therefore, you are to observe and obey them with all your heart and all your being. 17 You are agreeing today that YAHUVEH is your ELOHIM and that you will follow his ways; observe his laws, mitzvot and rulings; and do what he says. 18 In turn YAHUVEH is agreeing today that you are his own unique treasure, as he promised you; that you are to observe all his mitzvot; 19 and that he will raise you high above all the nations he has made, in praise, reputation and glory; and that, as he said, you will be a holy people for YAHUVEH your ELOHIM.”
27 (iv) Then Moshe and all the leaders of Isra’el gave orders to the people. They said, “Observe all the mitzvot I am giving you today. 2 When you cross the Yarden to the land YAHUVEH your ELOHIM is giving you, you are to set up large stones, put plaster on them, 3 and, after crossing over, write this Torah on them, every word — so that you can enter the land YAHUVEH your ELOHIM is giving you, a land flowing with milk and honey, as YAHUVEH, the ELOHIM of your ancestors, promised you. 4 When you have crossed the Yarden, you are to set up these stones, as I am ordering you today, on Mount ‘Eival; and put plaster on them. 5 There you are to erect an altar to YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, an altar made of stones. You are not to use any iron tool on them, 6 but are to build the altar of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM of uncut stones; and you are to offer burnt offerings on it to YAHUVEH your ELOHIM. 7 Also you are to sacrifice peace offerings, eat there and be joyful in the presence of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM. 8 You are to write on the stones all the words of this Torah very clearly.”
9 Next Moshe and the cohanim, who are L’vi’im, spoke to all Isra’el. They said, “Be quiet; and listen, Isra’el! Today you have become the people of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM. 10 Therefore you are to listen to what YAHUVEH your ELOHIM says and obey his mitzvot and laws, which I am giving you today.”
(v) 11 That same day Moshe commissioned the people as follows: 12 “These are the ones who are to stand on Mount G’rizim and bless the people after you have crossed the Yarden: Shim‘on, Levi, Y’hudah, Yissakhar, Yosef and Binyamin; 13 while these are to stand on Mount ‘Eival for the curse: Re’uven, Gad, Asher, Z’vulun, Dan and Naftali. 14 The L’vi’im, speaking loudly, will proclaim to every man of Isra’el:
15 “‘A curse on anyone who makes a carved or metal image, something YAHUVEH detests, the handiwork of a craftsman, and sets it up in secret!’ All the people are to respond by saying, ‘Amen!’
16 “‘A curse on anyone who dishonors his father or mother.’ All the people are to say, ‘Amen!’
17 “‘A curse on anyone who moves his neighbor’s boundary marker.’ All the people are to say, ‘Amen!’
18 “‘A curse on anyone who causes a blind person to lose his way on the road.’ All the people are to say, ‘Amen!’
19 “‘A curse on anyone who interferes with justice for the foreigner, orphan or widow.’ All the people are to say, ‘Amen!’
20 “‘A curse on anyone who has sexual relations with his father’s wife, because he has violated his father’s rights.’ All the people are to say, ‘Amen!’
21 “‘A curse on anyone who has sexual relations with any kind of animal.’ All the people are to say, ‘Amen!’
22 “‘A curse on anyone who has sexual relations with his sister, no matter whether she is the daughter of his father or of his mother.’ All the people are to say, ‘Amen!’
23 “‘A curse on anyone who has sexual relations with his mother-in-law.’ All the people are to say, ‘Amen!’
24 “‘A curse on anyone who secretly attacks a fellow member of the community.’ All the people are to say, ‘Amen!’
25 “‘A curse on anyone who accepts a bribe to kill an innocent person.’ All the people are to say, ‘Amen!’
26 “‘A curse on anyone who does not confirm the words of this Torah by putting them into practice.’ All the people are to say, ‘Amen!’
28 “If you listen closely to what YAHUVEH your ELOHIM says, observing and obeying all his mitzvot which I am giving you today, YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will raise you high above all the nations on earth; 2 and all the following blessings will be yours in abundance — if you will do what YAHUVEH your ELOHIM says:
3 “A blessing on you in the city, and a blessing on you in the countryside.
4 “A blessing on the fruit of your body, the fruit of your land and the fruit of your livestock — the young of your cattle and flocks.
5 “A blessing on your grain-basket and kneading-bowl.
6 “A blessing on you when you go out, and a blessing on you when you come in.
(vi) 7 “YAHUVEH will cause your enemies attacking you to be defeated before you; they will advance on you one way and flee before you seven ways.
8 “YAHUVEH will order a blessing to be with you in your barns and in everything you undertake; he will bless you in the land YAHUVEH your ELOHIM is giving you.
9 “YAHUVEH will establish you as a people separated out for himself, as he has sworn to you — if you will observe the mitzvot of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM and follow his ways. 10 Then all the peoples on earth will see that YAHUVEH’s name, his presence, is with you; so that they will be afraid of you.
11 “YAHUVEH will give you great abundance of good things — of the fruit of your body, the fruit of your livestock and the fruit of your land in the land YAHUVEH swore to your ancestors to give you. 12 YAHUVEH will open for you his good treasure, the sky, to give your land its rain at the right seasons and to bless everything you undertake. You will lend to many nations and not borrow; 13 YAHUVEH will make you the head and not the tail; and you will be only above, never below — if you will listen to, observe and obey the mitzvot of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM 14 and not turn away from any of the words I am ordering you today, neither to the right nor to the left, to follow after other ELOHIMs and serve them.
15 “But if you refuse to pay attention to what YAHUVEH your ELOHIM says, and do not observe and obey all his mitzvot and regulations which I am giving you today, then all the following curses will be yours in abundance:
16 “A curse on you in the city, and a curse on you in the countryside.
17 “A curse on your grain-basket and kneading-bowl.
18 “A curse on the fruit of your body, the fruit of your land and the young of your cattle and flocks.
19 “A curse on you when you come in, and a curse on you when you go out.
20 “YAHUVEH will send on you curses, disasters and frustration in everything you set out to do, until you are destroyed and quickly perish, because of your evil actions in abandoning me.
21 “YAHUVEH will bring on you a plague that will stay with you until he has exterminated you from the land you are entering in order to take possession of it. 22 YAHUVEH will strike you down with wasting diseases, fever, inflammation, fiery heat, drought, blasting winds and mildew; and they will pursue you until you perish.
23 “The sky over your head will be brass and the earth under you iron. 24 YAHUVEH will turn the rain your land needs into powder and dust that will fall on you from the sky until you are destroyed.
25 “YAHUVEH your ELOHIM will cause you to be defeated before your enemies; you will advance on them one way and flee before them seven. You will become an object of horror to every kingdom on earth. 26 Your carcasses will become food for all the birds in the air and the wild animals, and there will be no one to scare them away.
27 YAHUVEH will strike you down with the boils that broke out on the Egyptians, tumors, skin lesions and itching, all incurable. 28 YAHUVEH will strike you with insanity, blindness and utter confusion. 29 You will grope about at noon like a blind person groping in the dark, unable to find your way.
“You will be continually oppressed and robbed, and there will be no one to save you. 30 You will get engaged to a woman, but another man will marry her. You will build a house but not live in it. You will plant a vineyard but not use its fruit. 31 Your ox will be slaughtered before your eyes, but you won’t eat any of its meat. Your donkey will be taken away from you by force as you watch, and you won’t get it back. Your sheep will be given to your enemies, and there will be no one to help you. 32 Your sons and daughters will be handed over to another people; you will watch for them longingly all day but not see them; and there will be nothing you can do about it. 33 A nation unknown to you will eat the fruit of your land and labor. Yes, you will be continually oppressed and crushed, 34 till you go crazy from what your eyes have to see. 35 YAHUVEH will strike you down in the knees and legs with painful and incurable boils; they will spread from the sole of your foot to the crown of your head. 36 YAHUVEH will bring you and your king whom you have put over yourselves to a nation you have not known, neither you nor your ancestors; and there you will serve other ELOHIMs made of wood and stone. 37 You will be so devastated as to become a proverb and a laughingstock among all the peoples to which YAHUVEH will drive you.
38 “You will carry much seed out to the field but gather little in, because locusts will devour it. 39 You will plant vineyards and dress them but neither drink the wine nor gather the grapes, because worms will eat them. 40 You will have olive trees throughout your territory but not anoint yourself with the oil, because your olives will fall off unripe. 41 You will father sons and daughters, but they won’t belong to you, because they will go into captivity. 42 The bugs will inherit all your trees and the produce of your land.
43 “The foreigner living with you will rise higher and higher while you sink lower and lower. 44 He will lend to you, but you will not lend to him; he will be the head and you the tail.
45 “All these curses will come on you, pursuing you and overtaking you until you are destroyed, because you didn’t pay attention to what YAHUVEH your ELOHIM said, observing his mitzvot and regulations that he gave you. 46 These curses will be on you and your descendants as a sign and a wonder forever. 47 Because you didn’t serve YAHUVEH your ELOHIM with joy and gladness in your heart when you had such an abundance of everything; 48 YAHUVEH will send your enemy against you; and you will serve him when you are hungry, thirsty, poorly clothed and lacking everything; he will put a yoke of iron on your neck until he destroys you. 49 Yes, YAHUVEH will bring against you a nation from far away that will swoop down on you from the end of the earth like a vulture, a nation whose language you don’t understand, 50 a nation grim in appearance, whose people neither respect the old nor pity the young. 51 They will devour the offspring of your livestock and the produce of your soil, until you have been destroyed. They will leave you without grain, wine, olive oil, or your young cattle and sheep — until they have caused you to perish. 52 They will besiege all your towns until your high, fortified walls, in which you trusted, collapse everywhere in your land, which YAHUVEH your ELOHIM gave you. 53 Then, because of the severity of the siege and distress that your enemies are inflicting on you, you will eat the offspring of your own body, the flesh of your own sons and daughters, whom YAHUVEH your ELOHIM has given you. 54 Even the most gentle and sensitive man among you will be without pity for his brother, his beloved wife or his surviving children, 55 to the degree that he will refuse to share with any of them the flesh of his children whom he is eating; because if he did, he would have nothing left for himself — in the severity of the siege and distress your enemies are inflicting on you in all your towns. 56 The most delicate and sensitive woman among you, so sensitive and delicate that she wouldn’t think of touching the sole of her foot to the ground, will so begrudge her own beloved husband, son and daughter 57 that she will secretly eat the afterbirth that comes out of her and even her own children as she bears them — so desperately hungry will she be in the severity of the siege and distress your enemies are inflicting on you in your towns.
58 “If you will not observe and obey all the words of this Torah that are written in this book, so that you will fear this glorious and awesome name, YAHUVEH your ELOHIM; 59 then YAHUVEH will strike down you and your descendants with extraordinary plagues and severe sicknesses that go on and on. 60 He will bring back upon you all the diseases the Egyptians had, which you were in dread of; and they will cling to you. 61 Not only that, but YAHUVEH will bring upon you all the sicknesses and plagues that are not written in this book of the Torah — until you are destroyed. 62 You will be left few in number, whereas you were once as numerous as the stars in the sky — because you did not pay attention to the voice of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM.
63 “Thus it will come about that just as once YAHUVEH took joy in seeking to do you good and increase your numbers, so now YAHUVEH will take joy in causing you to perish and be destroyed, and you will be plucked off the land you are entering in order to take possession of it. 64 YAHUVEH will scatter you among all peoples from one end of the earth to the other, and there you will serve other ELOHIMs, made of wood and stone, which neither you nor your ancestors have known. 65 Among these nations you will not find repose, and there will be no rest for the sole of your foot; rather YAHUVEH will give you there anguish of heart, dimness of eyes and apathy of spirit. 66 Your life will hang in doubt before you; you will be afraid night and day and have no assurance that you will stay alive. 67 In the morning you will say, ‘Oh, how I wish it were evening!’ and in the evening you will say, ‘Oh, how I wish it were morning!’ — because of the fear overwhelming your heart and the sights your eyes will see. 68 Finally, YAHUVEH will bring you back in ships to Egypt, the place of which I said to you, ‘You will never ever see it again’; and there you will try to sell yourselves as slaves to your enemies, but no one will buy you.”
69 (29:1) These are the words of the covenant which YAHUVEH ordered Moshe to make with the people of Isra’el in the land of Mo’av, in addition to the covenant which he made with them in Horev.
29 (vii) (2) Then Moshe summoned all Isra’el and said to them, “You saw everything YAHUVEH did before your eyes in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, to all his servants and to all his land; 2 (3) the great testings which you saw with your own eyes, and the signs and those great wonders. 3 (4) Nevertheless, to this day YAHUVEH has not given you a heart to understand, eyes to see or ears to hear! 4 (5) I led you forty years in the desert. Neither the clothes on your body nor the shoes on your feet wore out. 5 (6) You didn’t eat bread, and you didn’t drink wine or other intoxicating liquor; this was so that you would know that ‘I am YAHUVEH your ELOHIM.’ (Maftir) 6 (7) When you arrived at this place, Sichon the king of Heshbon and ‘Og the king of Bashan advanced against us in battle, and we defeated them, 7 (8) took their land and gave it as an inheritance to the Re’uveni, the Gadi and the M’nashi. 8 (9) Therefore, observe the words of this covenant and obey them; so that you can make everything you do prosper.
“Arise, shine [Yerushalayim],
for your light has come,
the glory of YAHUVEH
has risen over you.
For although darkness covers the earth
and thick darkness the peoples;
on you YAHUVEH will rise;
over you will be seen his glory.
Nations will go toward your light
and kings toward your shining splendor.
Raise your eyes and look around:
they are all assembling and coming to you;
your sons are coming from far off,
your daughters being carried on their nurses’ hips.
Then you will see and be radiant,
your heart will throb and swell with delight;
for the riches of the seas will be brought to you,
the wealth of nations will come to you.
Caravans of camels will cover your land,
young camels from Midyan and ‘Eifah,
all of them coming from Sh’va,
bringing gold and frankincense,
and proclaiming the praises of YAHUVEH.
All the flocks of Kedar will be gathered for you,
the rams of N’vayot will be at your service;
they will come up and be received on my altar,
as I glorify my glorious house.
“Who are these, flying along like clouds,
like doves to their dovecotes?
The coastlands are putting their hope in me,
with the ‘Tarshish’ ships in the lead,
to bring your children from far away,
and with them their silver and gold,
for the sake of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM,
the Holy One of Isra’el, who glorifies you.
Foreigners will rebuild your walls,
their kings will be at your service;
for in my anger I struck you,
but in my mercy I pity you.
Your gates will always be open,
they will not be shut by day or by night,
so that people can bring you the wealth of nations,
with their kings led in procession.
For the nation or kingdom that won’t serve you will perish;
yes, those nations will be utterly destroyed.
“The glory of the L’vanon will come to you,
cypresses together with elm trees and larches,
to beautify the site of my sanctuary —
I will glorify the place where I stand.
The children of your oppressors will come
and bow low before you,
all who despised you will fall at your feet,
calling you the city of YAHUVEH,
Tziyon of the Holy One of Isra’el.
“In the past you were abandoned and hated,
so that no one would even pass through you;
but now I will make you the pride of the ages,
a joy for many generations.
You will drink the milk of nations,
you will nurse at royal breasts
and know that I, YAHUVEH, am your Savior,
your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Ya‘akov.
“For bronze I will bring you gold,
for iron I will bring you silver,
bronze in place of wood,
and iron in place of stones.
I will make shalom your governor
and righteousness your taskmaster.
Violence will no longer be heard in your land,
desolation or destruction within your borders;
instead, you will call your walls Salvation
and your gates Praise.
“No more will the sun be your light by day,
nor will moonlight shine on you;
instead YAHUVEH will be your light forever
and your ELOHIM your glory.
No longer will your sun go down;
your moon will no longer wane;
for YAHUVEH will be your light forever;
your days of mourning will end.
All your people will be tzaddikim;
they will inherit the land forever;
they will be the branch I planted,
my handiwork, in which I take pride.
The smallest will grow to a thousand,
the weakest will become a mighty nation.
I, YAHUVEH, when the right time comes,
will quickly bring it about.”
1 Peter 2:1–25
2 Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice, of all deceit, hypocrisy and envy, and of all the ways there are of speaking against people; 2 and be like newborn babies, thirsty for the pure milk of the Word; so that by it, you may grow up into deliverance. 3 For you have tasted that YAHUVEH is good.[a]
4 As you come to him, the living stone, rejected by people but chosen by God and precious to him, 5 you yourselves, as living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be cohanim set apart for God to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to him through YAHUSHUA the Messiah. 6 This is why the Tanakh says,
“Look! I am laying in Tziyon a stone,
a chosen and precious cornerstone;
and whoever rests his trust on it
will certainly not be humiliated.”[b]
7 Now to you who keep trusting, he is precious. But to those who are not trusting,
“The very stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone”;[c]
8 also he is
a stone that will make people stumble,
a rock over which they will trip.[d]
They are stumbling at the Word, disobeying it — as had been planned. 9 But you are a chosen people,[e] the King’s cohanim,[f] a holy nation,[g] a people for God to possess![h] Why? In order for you to declare the praises of the One who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; before, you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.[i]
11 Dear friends, I urge you as aliens and temporary residents[j] not to give in to the desires of your old nature, which keep warring against you; 12 but to live such good lives among the pagans that even though they now speak against you as evil-doers, they will, as a result of seeing your good actions, give glory to God on the Day of his coming. 13 For the sake of the Lord, submit yourselves to every human authority — whether to the emperor as being supreme, 14 or to governors as being sent by him to punish wrongdoers and praise those who do what is good. 15 For it is God’s will that your doing good should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. 16 Submit as people who are free, but not letting your freedom serve as an excuse for evil; rather, submit as God’s slaves. 17 Be respectful to all — keep loving the brotherhood, fearing God and honoring the emperor.
18 Household servants, submit yourselves to your masters, showing them full respect — and not only those who are kind and considerate, but also those who are harsh. 19 For it is a grace when someone, because he is mindful of God, bears up under the pain of undeserved punishment. 20 For what credit is there in bearing up under a beating you deserve for doing something wrong? But if you bear up under punishment, even though you have done what is right, God looks on it with favor. 21 Indeed, this is what you were called to; because the Messiah too suffered, on your behalf, leaving an example so that you should follow in his steps.
“He committed no sin,
nor was any deceit found on his lips.”[k]
23 When he was insulted, he didn’t retaliate with insults; when he suffered, he didn’t threaten, but handed them over to him who judges justly. 24 He himself bore our sins[l] in his body on the stake,[m] so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness — by his wounds you were healed.[n] 25 For you used to be like sheep gone astray, but now you have turned to[o] the Shepherd, who watches over you.
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: Blessings Come From Being A Blessing
Prophecy 70 What Will You Do When Calamity Come Knocking On 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.
Prophecy 13 Tell Them MY Child, Tell Them For Me
Great will be the blessings I have reserved for all who serve and obey, tithe, who are holy and worship ME. Tell them MY child; tell them for ME For I am coming oh so quickly. I tell you others will hear this prophetic echo all over the world. And they will not hear the voice of a woman speaking, but hear the voice of Almighty God YAHUVEH speaking. They will not hear one voice but many will be echoing MY voice.
For this reason I will spare them on the Day of Judgment MY children are not afraid to stand up for holiness. They will speak out against homosexuality, and abortion, pornography, and all manner of sin. Did I not love enough to even warn the Pharisees? How much more should you? Did I not send Moses to warn the evil Pharaoh? How much more should you? MY Children know I have promised, the same reward this minister receives in Heaven for ministering to the people, bringing souls to ME, praying, teaching, setting captives free in MY Name. Speaking out against unholiness and speaking forth MY prophetic messages.
The same treasure is laid up for whoever supports, encourages, and prays for these apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, teachers those that set the captives free for MY Glory. They will also receive the same rewards stored up for them in Heaven.
I admonish you, sow your seed only into ministries that preach and teach the entire truth, even if it offends. Pray for these ministers, support them. I am not speaking of man made licenses this world calls spiritual credentials. Many have these and have huge churches also, yet they use them to lead the people astray. Only Almighty God YAHUVEH ordains, not man.
For the same measure you give, and the same attitude is the same attitude I give back to you. So you now have your answers. When I don’t answer your prayers quickly, you now know why. When it seems as if holes are in your pockets, and the devourer comes and eats your seed so there is not enough to pay your debtors, you now know why. There is a curse upon all finances that do not remember to give the 10% as tithe. An offering is anything above that. When it seems everything that can go wrong in your life is going wrong. You now know why.
You have robbed YAHUVEH! Malachi 3 does not change. The famous ministers of this world are not always speaking forth truth but instead examine what they are saying, does it line up with the word of YAHUVEH or are they twisting scripture.to line up with the Word of YAHUVEH or to conform to man’s image? Your tithes and offerings no matter how great the sacrifice is not holy to ME, if you are sowing into satan’s kingdom! And that is what you’re doing if you’re supporting someone whom teaches error, and teaches man made doctrine, not the Holy Word of YAHUVEH that cannot lie. I am the Word that was made flesh! You are now held accountable for what you did not know, or were taught.

Welcome to Ki Tavo /When You Enter, this week’s Parasha /Torah Portion.
“When you have entered [ki tavo] the land YAHUVEH your GOD is giving you as an inheritance … take some of the firstfruits of all that you produce from the soil of the land YAHUVEH your GOD HE is giving you and put them in a basket. Then go to the place YAHUVEH your GOD will choose as a dwelling for HIS name.” (Deuteronomy 26:1–2)
Last week, in Parasha Ki Tetze, YAHUVEH gave to the Israelites 74 of the 613 commandments found in the Torah — far more than any other Torah portion.
These laws mostly seem to be concerned with protecting the weaker members of society. They include laws concerning the beautiful captive, paying workers in a timely fashion, and leaving a portion of the harvest in the field for the widow, the fatherless, and the stranger.
This week, in Parasha Ki Tavo /When You Enter, YAHUVEH instructs Israel to bring the first-ripened fruits (bikkurim) to the central sanctuary once the Israelites have finally entered the Land HE promised to them.
It must have been a relief for the children of Israel to hear that their prolonged, 40-year journey through the wilderness would finally be coming to an end. They were about to cross over into the Promised Land.
In fact, the word in Hebrew for a Hebrew, Ivri, comes from the root I-V-R, which means to cross over. In a spiritual sense, anyone who has crossed over into the Kingdom of GOD is an Ivri.
For that reason, perhaps, Paul said that being a Jew is a matter of having a circumcised heart more than circumcised flesh. He wasn’t by any means negating circumcision; he was emphasizing that to cross over into the Kingdom of GOD, there must be an inward change.
Those who worship YAHUVEH, worship HIM in Spirit and in truth.
“But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that which is of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter; and his praise is not from men, but from YAHUVEH.” (Romans 2:29)
The wilderness experience was so challenging and defining and we are to consider any physical or spiritual desert as an enemy to be overcome. Our challenge is to walk through the times of wilderness in our lives and be transformed so that we can enter the Promised Land.
Ki Tavo promises that obedience to YAHUVEH will be rewarded. These rewards include Divine protection, prosperity, and blessings on families and future generations.
Disobedience and rebellion against YAHUVEH, however, result in punishment; the Word of YAHUVEH lists 98 chilling admonitions that take up half of this Parasha.
These include diseases, plagues, poverty, famine, slavery, and defeat by enemies.
For this reason, Parasha Ki Tavo has been called “the warning chapter,” and the Torah reader, who traditionally chants the Torah portion according to a sing-song pattern, rushes through the recital of dreaded curses in a hushed, fearful tone.
We need not look far to see that the Jewish People have been blessed by the Almighty GOD as HE promised; but they have also suffered much over the centuries due to the curses of the law that come into play because of sin (Deuteronomy 28:15–68).
There are some who follow YAHUSHUA Ha MASHIACH, but believe that it is our lot in life to suffer from these curses along with the rest of the world; however, the Word of YAHUVEH tells us differently.
As covenant children of YAHUVEH, we are to enjoy HIS blessings on our lives if we are walking in obedience to HIS commandments.
“But Messiah has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. When HE was hung on the tree, HE took upon HIMSELF the curse for our wrongdoing.”
Blessings Come from Being a Blessing
One of the first acts of obedience that YAHUVEH asks of HIS people is to remove the firstfruits of our increase, our tithe, the sacred portion — and to give it to those who serve YAHUVEH, as well as to the poor.
“Then say to YAHUVEH your GOD: ‘I have removed from MY house the sacred portion and have given it to the Levite, the foreigner, the fatherless and the widow, according to all YOU commanded.’” (Deuteronomy 26:13)
If we are not obeying this command, then we have little Biblical basis on which to expect YAHUVEH’s blessings on our finances.
YAHUVEH promises that if we obey HIM in giving our tithe, HE will rebuke the devourer for our sakes and bless our finances.
“‘Then I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of the ground; nor will your vine in the field cast its grapes,’ says YAHUVEH of hosts.” (Malachi 3:11)
But the reverse holds true as well: if we fail to give to YAHUVEH the “hallowed portion” of our income, then we are breaking covenant by “robbing YAHUVEH.”
When we fail to tithe, we come under a curse and give the devourer free rein to destroy our finances.
While YAHUSHUA has removed from us the curse of the law, HE has not removed from us the obligation to follow HIS example by living a holy life. When we understand that we are walking in sin in some area, we are to repent and return to HIM.
By giving our tithe — the holy (kadosh) portion of our income — removing it from our possession, we return to YAHUVEH in so many ways and HE returns to us.
“‘Return to ME, and I will return to you,’ says YAHUVEH Almighty. But you ask, ‘How are we to return?’ Will a mere mortal rob YAHUVEH? Yet you rob me. But you ask, ‘How are we robbing YOU?’ In tithes and offerings. You are under a curse—your whole nation—because you are robbing ME.” (Malachi 3:7–9)
In Judaism, the giving of tzedakah (charity) is considered such an important mitzvah (commandment) that if someone does not fulfill this law, their lineage actually becomes suspect.
Giving to the poor is an obligation in Judaism, a duty that cannot be forsaken even by those who themselves are in need. Some sages have said that tzedakah is the highest of all commandments, equal to all of them combined, and that a person who does not perform tzedakah is equivalent to an idol worshiper.
This principle is affirmed also in the Brit Chadashah (New Covenant), which emphasizes that if we don’t give when we see a brother in material need, it is doubtful that the love of YAHUVEH truly dwells within us.
“If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of YAHUVEH be in him?” (1 John 3:17)
Of course, YAHUVEH rewards compassion and generosity. HE promises that when we give to the poor and needy, the widows and orphans, HE will pay us back for what we have given.
“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to YAHUVEH, and HE will repay him for his deed.” (Proverbs 19:17)
A Treasured Possession
“And YAHUVEH has declared this day that you are HIS people, HIS treasured possession as HE promised, and that you are to keep all HIS commands. HE has declared that HE will set you in praise, fame and honor high above all the nations HE has made and that you will be a people holy to YAHUVEH your GOD, as HE promised.” (Deuteronomy 26:18–19)
YAHUVEH promises Israel in this Parasha that if they keep HIS commandments, they will be “HIS treasured possession.” This promise is also found in Exodus:
“Now if you obey ME fully and keep MY covenant, then out of all nations you will be MY treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, you will be for ME a kingdom of priests and a holy nation [mamlechet cohanim v’goee kadosh].” (Exodus 19:5–6)
And although they have experienced many curses over the generations, in the Haftarah (prophetic portion), the prophet Isaiah tells Israel that YAHUVEH in HIS favor and mercy will one day exalt them even in the midst of much persecution and hatred against them:
“Whereas you have been forsaken and hated, with no one passing through, I will make you majestic forever, a joy from age to age.” (Isaiah 60:15)
In the Brit Chadashah, all followers of YAHUSHUA are called YAHUVEH’s special people. Because of our covenant with the Almighty GOD through the blood of YAHUSHUA, both Jew and Gentile together can know that they are YAHUVEH’s most treasured possession.
“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for YAHUVEH’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of HIM who has called you out of darkness into HIS marvelous light.” (1 Peter 2:9)
In Hebrew, the word for special treasure is segulah (סגולה). The color purple in Hebrew is sagol (סגול), a word that comes from the same root letters. Why? Purple is the color of royalty!
As YAHUVEH’s segulah, we are clothed in sagol — the color of royalty.
We are children of the King and HE is our Father. HE values and treasures us. There is no need to search for external or superficial qualifications. This is simply our identity in the Messiah!
We might look at ourselves and say, I don’t look much like a treasure; I’m too short or too tall, too fat or too thin, not pretty or smart enough to be a treasure.
We might check in with our emotions and say, I don’t feel that I qualify to be called a treasure of YAHUVEH; I have so many faults and weaknesses — I need to work on keeping my temper; I’m not yet disciplined enough; I don’t witness enough — whatever we perceive to be our weakness.
But as the apostle Paul says, we are to put no confidence in the attributes of our flesh (Philippians 3:3). Certainly, if anyone could have qualified as a treasure by the certificates on his wall and trophies on his desk, it would have been the apostle Paul, who described himself in this way:
“… circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; in regard to the law, a Pharisee; as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for righteousness based on the law, faultless.” (Philippians 3:5–6)
He considered himself without fault in the flesh and in his keeping of the Torah; yet he put no value on all of these external qualifications. Instead, he put his trust in the person of the Messiah YAHUSHUA:
“But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Messiah YAHUSHUA. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Messiah YAHUSHUA my LORD, for whose sake I have lost all things …
“I consider them garbage, that I may gain Messiah and be found in HIM, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Messiah — the righteousness that comes from YAHUVEH on the basis of faith.” (Philippians 3:7–9)
Although Paul continued to keep the law, he understood that his excellent performance was not to be compared to the righteousness that comes from YAHUVEH on the basis of faith.
And while our own performance may not be as righteous as Paul’s, we must accept by faith that if we are empowered to walk in YAHUVEH’s ways by HIS RUACH HA KODESH and are obedient, then we are in truth HIS special treasure.
Despite our faults, weaknesses and imperfections, YAHUVEH loves and values us, and we can say, “I am royalty — a child of the King of Kings — the segulah of YAHUVEH — a precious treasure!”
HE values us because we are HIS covenant children and are each created in HIS image and likeness. A spark of HIS divine SHEKHINAH GLORY is within us.
If we have a $100 bill and it accidentally drops on the ground, getting soiled, stepped on, crumpled, and bent — is it worth any less than $100? No, it retains its value.
So too it is with us. Many of us, however, do not understand our value.
Some of us have not always been treated like a treasure. Perhaps parents, schoolmates, spouses, or fellow Believers have not treated us with honor and respect. We may have even been abused or mistreated terribly by people, as if we are someone inconsequential.
But YAHUVEH does not see us this way. Even if we have been broken; even if our heart has been torn in two or our whole life shattered, we are still a beautiful treasure to YAHUVEH— “a crown of beauty and a royal diadem in the hand of our GOD.” (Isaiah 62:3)
How do we care for treasures? We put them in special places and guard them jealously, keeping them in a safe, secure place. Can we even fathom the grief and wrath that YAHUVEH feels when someone causes one of HIS segulah to suffer?
We need to leave these injustices and hurts in the hands of YAHUVEH who says HE will vindicate us. Our only choice is to forgive those who have hurt and mistreated us.
Sometimes, when we don’t see ourselves as valuable and worthy of respect, we send signals to others that we are valueless and worthless. The result is often that they will treat us as such.
Or our perception of how others treat us can prevent us from moving forward in YAH’s promises. For instance, when the Israelites saw themselves as grasshoppers, they thought that the giants in Canaan did as well!
But when we begin to value and respect ourselves in a balanced and Godly manner, we will find more and more that the people in our lives properly value and esteem us as well.
Part of our healing and recovery is a transformation in the way we see ourselves — knowing our identity in the Messiah as righteous, whole, precious, valuable. We receive these precious attributes only through HIS Divine Covenant.
Let us enter into everything that YAHUVEH has for us — our freedom from condemnation, freedom from the curses, joy unspeakable, and peace that passes all understanding.
All these and more have been given to us through the New Covenant, bought with the precious blood of the sinless Lamb of YAHUVEH, YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH !
The vast majority of the Jewish People today do not yet know YAHUSHUA, nor do they understand the freedom from the curse and the peace that passes all understanding that is available through HIM.
Shabbat Shalom from AMIGHTYWIND!
