BEREISHEET (In the Beginning)
*~Genesis Chapter 12 ~*
1 And YAHUVEH had said to Abram, Go out from your land and from your kindred, and from your father’s house, to the land which I will show you.
2 And I will make of you a great nation. And I will bless you and make your name great; and you will be a blessing.
3 And I will bless those who bless you, and curse the one despising you. And in you all families of the earth shall be blessed.
4 And Abram went out, even as YAHUVEH had spoken to him. And Lot went with him. And Abram was a son of seventy five years when he departed from Haran.
5 And Abram took his wife Sarai, and his brother’s son, Lot, and all their substance that they had gained, and the persons they had gotten in Haran. And they went out to go into the land of Canaan. And they came into the land of Canaan.
6 And Abram passed through the land as far as the place of Shechem, to the Oak of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.
7 And YAHUVEH appeared to Abram and said, I will give this set apart land to your seed. And he built an altar there to YAHUVEH, who appeared to him.
8 And he moved from there to a mountain on the east of Bethel, and stretched his tent with Bethel toward the sea, and Ai on the east. And he built an altar there to YAHUVEH, and called on the name of YAHUVEH.
9 And Abram setting forth and going on toward the Negev.
10 And a famine was in the land, so Abram went down into Egypt to stay there. For the famine was severe in the land.
11 And it happened when he had drawn near to come to Egypt, he said to his wife Sarai, Behold, please, I know that you are a beautiful woman to look upon.
12 And it will be, when the Egyptians see you, then they will say, This is his wife, and they will kill me, and they will save you alive.
13 Please say that you are my sister, so that it may be well with me for your sake, and my soul shall live because of you.
14 And it happened, when Abram had come into Egypt, the Egyptians saw the woman, that she was very beautiful.
15 And Pharaoh’s princes saw her, and they praised her before Pharaoh. And the woman was taken into Pharaoh’s house.
16 And he did good to Abram because of her. And he had sheep, and oxen, he-donkeys, and male slaves, and slave-girls, and she-donkeys, and camels.
17 And YAHUVEH touched Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram’s wife.
18 And Pharaoh called for Abram and said, What is this you have done to me? Why did you not tell me she is your wife?
19 Why did you say, She is my sister? And so I took her for my wife. And now, behold your wife. Take her and go.
20 And as Pharaoh ordered his men as to him, they sent away him and his wife and all that he had.
*~Genesis Chapter 13 ~*
1 And Abram went up out of Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot being with him into the Negev.
2 And Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver and in gold.
3 And he went on his journeys from the south, even to Bethel, to the place where his tent had been there at the beginning, between Bethel and Ai,
4 to the place of the altar which he had made there at the first. And Abram called there on the name of YAHUVEH.
5 And Lot, who went with Abram, also had flocks and herds and tents.
6 And the land was not able to bear them, for dwelling together, for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together.
7 And there was strife between the herdsmen of Abram’s livestock and the herdsmen of Lot’s livestock. And the Canaanite and the Perizzite lived then in the land.
8 And Abram said to Lot, Please let there be no strife between me and you, and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen, for we are men, brothers.
9 Is not all the land before you? Please separate from me. If you go to the left, then I will go to the right. Or if you go to the right, then I will go to the left.
10 And Lot lifted up his eyes and saw all the circuit of the Jordan, that it was well-watered before YAHUVEH destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of YAHUVEH, like the land of Egypt as you come to Zoar.
11 Then Lot chose all the circuit of the Jordan for himself. And Lot set forth eastward. And they were separated, each one from his brother.
12 And Abram lived in the land of Canaan, and Lot lived in the cities of the circuit, and tented as far as Sodom.
13 And the men of Sodom were evil and sinners before YAHUVEH, exceedingly so.
14 And after Lot had separated from him, YAHUVEH said to Abram, Now lift up your eyes and look from the place where you are there, look northward and southward and eastward and westward.
15 For all the land which you see I will give to you, and to your seed always.
16 And I will make your seed as the dust of the earth, so that if a man can count the dust of the earth, then your seed also will be counted.
17 Rise up! Walk through the land, in its length and in its breadth, for I will give it to you.
18 Then Abram moved his tent and came and lived among the oaks of Mamre, which were in Hebron; and he built an altar to YAHUVEH there.
*~Genesis Chapter 14 ~*
1 And it happened in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer, king of Elam, and Tidal king of the nations;
2 they made war with Bera king of Sodom, and with Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, and Shemeber king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which is Zoar.
3 All these were joined together to the valley of Siddim, which is the Salt Sea.
4 They served Chedorlaomer for twelve years, and the thirteenth year they rebelled.
5 And in the fourteenth year Chedor-Laomer and the kings that were with him came and struck the giants in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the Zuzims in Ham, and the Emim in Shaveh Kiria-Thaim,
6 and the Horites in the hills of Seir, as far as the oak of Paran, which is by the wilderness.
7 And they turned back and came to Enmishpat which is Kadesh, and struck all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites who lived in Hazazon Thamar.
8 And the king of Sodom went out, and the king of Gomorrah, and the king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which is Zoar. And they set the battle with them in the valley of Siddim,
9 with Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and with Tidal the king of the nations, and Amraphel the king of Shinar, and Arioch the king of Ellasar; four kings with the five.
10 And the valley of Siddim was pitted with asphalt pits, and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there. And they that remained fled to the mountain.
11 And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their food, and went away.
12 And they took Lot, the son of Abram’s brother, and his goods, and left; and he was living in Sodom.
13 And one who had escaped came and told Abram the Hebrew; for he was living among the oaks of Mamre the Amorite, the brother of Eshcol and Aner. And these were possessor of a covenant with Abram.
14 And when Abram heard that his brother was captured, even then he led out his trained men, born of his household, three hundred and eighteen. And they pursued as far as Dan.
15 And he divided against them by night, he and his slaves, and he struck them, and pursued them as far as Hobah, which is on the left of Damascus.
16 And he brought back all the goods, and also brought back his brother, and also the women and the people.
17 And the king of Sodom went out to meet him, after he returned from smiting Chedorlaomer and the kings which were with him, to the valley of Shaveh, it being the valley of the king.
18 And Melchizedek, king of Salem, brought out bread and wine; and he was the priest of the most High El.
19 And he blessed him and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high El, possessor of Heaven and earth;
20 and blessed be the most high El, who has delivered your enemies into your hand. And he gave him a tithe of all.
21 And the king of Sodom said to Abram, Give me the persons and take the goods for yourself.
22 And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lifted up my hand to YAHUVEH, the most high El, the possessor of Heaven and earth,
23 that I will not take from all that is yours, from a thread to a shoe latchet, and that you may not say, I have made Abram rich.
24 Nothing for me; only what the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men who went with me: Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.
*~Genesis Chapter 15 ~*
1 After these things the Word of YAHUVEH came to Abram in a vision, saying, Do not fear, Abram; I am a shield to you, your reward will increase greatly.
2 And Abram said, Adonai YAHUVEH, what will You give to me? I am going childless and the son of the inheritance of my house is Eleazar of Damascus?
3 And Abram said, Behold! You have given no seed to me; and lo, the son of my house is inheriting of me!
4 And behold! The Word of YAHUVEH came to him saying, This one shall not be your heir. But he that shall come forth out of your own bowels shall be your heir.
5 And He brought him outside and said, Look now at the heavens and count the stars, if you are able to count them. And He said to him, So shall your seed be.
6 And he believed in YAHUVEH. And He counted it to him for righteousness.
7 And He said to him, I am YAHUVEH who caused you to come out of Ur of the Chaldeans, to give you this land to inherit it.
8 And he said, Adonai YAHUVEH, by what shall I know that I shall inherit it?
9 And He said to him, Take for Me a heifer three years old, and a she-goat three years old, and a ram three years old, and a turtledove, even a nestling.
10 And he took all these for Him, and he divided them in the middle; and he laid each piece opposite its neighbor, but he did not divide the bird.
11 And the birds of prey came down on the carcasses, and Abram drove them away.
12 And it happened, as the sun was setting, and a deep sleep fell on Abram. And behold, a terror of great darkness was falling on him!
13 And He said to Abram, surely you must know that your seed shall be an alien in a land not theirs; and they shall serve them. And they shall afflict them four hundred years;
14 and I also will judge the nation whom they shall serve; and afterward they shall come out with great substance.
15 And you shall come to your fathers in peace. You shall be buried in good old age.
16 And in the fourth generation they shall come here again; for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full until now.
17 And it happened, the sun had gone down, and it was dark. Behold! A smoking furnace and a torch of fire that passed over between those pieces!
18 In that day YAHUVEH cut a covenant with Abram, saying, I have given this land to your seed, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates,
19 the Kenite, and the Kenizzite, and the Kadmonite,
20 and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Rephaim,
21 and the Amorite and the Canaanite, and the Girgashite, and the Jebusite.
*~Genesis Chapter 16 ~*
1 And Sarai, Abram’s wife, did not bear to him; and to her belonged a female slave, an Egyptian, and her name was Hagar.
2 And Sarai said to Abram, See, now, YAHUVEH has kept me from bearing; go in now to my maid-servant; perhaps I may be built up from her. And Abram listened to the voice of Sarai.
3 And Sarai, Abram’s wife, took her slave-girl, Hagar, the Egyptian, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife, after Abram had lived ten years in the land of Canaan.
4 And he went in to Hagar and she conceived; and she saw that she had conceived, and her mistress was despised in her eyes.
5 And Sarai said to Abram, My injury be upon you; I gave my slave-girl into your bosom, and she saw that she had conceived, and I was despised in her eyes. Let YAHUVEH judge between me and you.
6 But Abram said to Sarai, See, your slave girl is in your hand. Do to her what is good in your eyes. And Sarai dealt harshly with her, and she fled from her face.
7 And the Messenger of YAHUVEH found her by a well of water in the wilderness; by the well in the way of Shur.
8 And He said, Hagar, Sarai’s slave-girl, where did you come from? And where do you go? And she said, I am fleeing from the face of my mistress, Sarai.
9 And the Messenger of YAHUVEH said to her, Return to your mistress and submit yourself under her hand.
10 And the Messenger of YAHUVEH said to her, I will exceedingly multiply your seed, so that it shall not be numbered for multitude.
11 And the Messenger of YAHUVEH said to her, Behold! You are with child and shall bear a son; and you shall call his name Ishmael, because YAHUVEH has listened to your affliction.
12 And he shall be a wild donkey of a man, his hand against all, and the hand of everyone against him; and he shall live before all his brothers.
13 And she called the name of YAHUVEH, the One speaking to her, You, a El of vision! For she said, Even here have I looked after the One seeing me?
14 On account of this, the well was called, The Well of the Living One Seeing Me. Behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered.
15 And Hagar bore a son to Abram, and Abram called the name of his son whom Hagar bore, Ishmael.
16 And Abram was eighty six years old when Hagar bore Ishmael to Abram.
*~Genesis Chapter 17 ~*
1 And when Abram was ninety nine years old, YAHUVEH appeared to Abram and said to him, I am El Shaddai! Walk before me and be perfect;
2 and I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will increase you very greatly.
3 And Abram fell on his face. And Elohim spoke with him, saying,
4 As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations.
5 And your name no longer shall be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham. For I have made you a father of many nations.
6 And I will make you very fruitful, exceedingly. And I will give you for nations. And kings shall come out of you.
7 And I will establish My covenant between Me and you, and your seed after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be a Elohim to you and to your seed after you.
8 And I will give to you and to your seed after you the land of your sojourning, all the land of Canaan, for an ever-lasting possession and I will be their Elohim.
9 And Elohim said to Abraham, You shall keep My covenant, you and your seed after you in their generations.
10 This is My covenant which you shall keep, between Me and you and your seed after you: Every male child among you shall be circumcised.
11 And you shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin. And it shall be a token of the covenant between Me and you.
12 And a son of eight days shall be circumcised among you, every male in your generation, he that is born in the house, or bought with silver from any son of a foreigner who is not of your seed.
13 The child of your house and the purchase of your money circumcising must be circumcised. And My covenant shall be in your flesh for a perpetual covenant.
14 And an uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, his soul shall be cut off from his people; he has broken My covenant.
15 And Elohim said to Abraham, You shall not call your wife Sarai by her name Sarai, for Sarah shall be her name;
16 and I have blessed her and have also given to you a son from her. Yea, I have blessed her and she shall become nations; kings of people shall be from her.
17 And Abraham fell on his face and laughed. And he said in his heart, Shall one be born to a son of a hundred years? And shall Sarah bear a daughter of ninety years?
18 And Abraham said to Elohim, Oh that Ishmael might live before You!
19 And Elohim said, Your wife Sarah truly shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac. And I have established My covenant with him for a perpetual covenant with his seed after him.
20 And as to Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him and will make him fruitful and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall father twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.
21 And I will establish My covenant with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this set apart time next year.
22 And He finished talking with him. And Elohim ascended up from Abraham.
23 And Abraham took his son Ishmael, and all the ones born of his house, and all that were bought with his silver, every male among the men of the house of Abraham. And he circumcised the flesh of their foreskins in that same day, even as Elohim spoke to him.
24 And Abraham was a son of ninety nine years when being circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.
25 And his son Ishmael was a son of thirteen years when being circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.
26 In the same day that Abraham was circumcised, Ishmael his son also was.
27 And all the men of his house, born in the house or bought with silver from a son of a foreigner, were circumcised with him.
27 Why will you say, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel; My way is hidden from YAHWEH, and my judgment is passed over by my Elohim?
28 Have you not known? Have you not heard? YAHWEH, the everlasting Elohim, the Creator of the ends of the earth; He is not faint, nor does He grow weary; there is no searching to His understanding.
29 He gives power to the faint, and to him with no vigor He increases might.
30 Even youths are faint and fatigued, and young men stumbling shall stumble;
31 but the ones waiting for YAHWEH shall renew power; they shall go up with wings as the eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not be faint!
*~Isa Chapter 41 ~*
1 Be quiet before Me, O coasts; and let peoples renew their power. They come near; then they speak: Let us draw near together for judgment.
2 Who raised up the righteous one from the east? He called him to His foot; He gives nations before him, and subdues kings; He gives them as dust to his sword, as driven stubble to his bow;
3 He pursues them; he passes on in peace; he does not go by the way with his feet.
4 Who has planned and done it, calling forth the generations from the beginning? I YAHWEH am the first (Aleph/Tav) and the last; I am He.
5 The coasts have seen and fear; the ends of the earth tremble; they have drawn near; yea, they come.
6 Each man helps his neighbor, and says to his brother, Be strong.
7 So the carver strengthens the refiner; and he smoothing with the hammer, him who struck the anvil, saying of the soldering, It is good. And he made it strong with nails; it will not totter.
8 But you Israel are My servant, Jacob whom I have elected; the seed of My friend Abraham;
9 whom I have made strong from the ends of the earth, and called you from its sides; and I said to you, You are My servant. I chose you, and have not rejected you.
10 Do not fear, for I am with you; do not gaze about, for I am your Elohim; I will make you strong; yea, I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of My righteousness.
11 Behold, they all shall be humiliated, all who are provoked with you; they shall be as nothing; men who contend with you shall perish.
12 You shall seek them and shall not find them; men of your strife shall be as nothing, even men of your battle as ceasing.
13 For I, YAHWEH your Elohim am strengthening your right hand, who says to you, Do not fear I will help you.
14 Fear not, worm of Jacob, men of Israel; I will help you, states YAHWEH, and your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
15 Behold! I have made you a new sharp threshing sledge, a master of teeth; you shall thresh mountains and beat them small, and shall make hills like the chaff.
16 You shall winnow them, and the wind will carry them away, and the tempest will scatter them. And you shall rejoice in YAHWEH; you shall glory in the Holy One of Israel.
*~Matt Chapter 1 ~*
1 The Book of the genealogy of YAHUSHUA Messiah the Son of David, the son of Abraham.
2 Abraham fathered Isaac, and Isaac fathered Jacob, and Jacob fathered Judah and his brothers.
3 And Judah fathered Pharez and Zarah out of Tamar, and Pharez fathered Hezron, and Hezron fathered Aram,
4 and Aram fathered Amminadab, and Amminadab fathered Nahshon, and Nahshon fathered Salmon,
5 and Salmon fathered Boaz out of Rahab, and Boaz fathered Obed out of Ruth, and Obed fathered Jesse,
6 and Jesse fathered David the king. And David the king fathered Solomon out of her who had been the wife of Uriah,
7 and Solomon fathered Rehoboam, and Rehoboam fathered Abijah, and Abijah fathered Asa,
8 and Asa fathered Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat fathered Jehoram, and Jehoram fathered Uzziah,
9 and Uzziah fathered Jotham, and Jotham fathered Ahaz, and Ahaz fathered Hezekiah,
10 and Hezekiah fathered Manasseh, and Manasseh fathered Amon, and Amon fathered Josiah,
11 and Josiah fathered Jehoiachin and his brothers, at the deportation of Babylon.
12 And after the deportation of Babylon, Jehoiachin fathered Shealtiel, and Shealtiel fathered Zerubbabel,
13 and Zerubbabel fathered Abiud, and Abiud fathered Eliakim, and Eliakim fathered Azor,
14 and Azor fathered Sadoc, and Sadoc fathered Achim, and Achim fathered Eliud,
15 and Eliud fathered Eleazar, and Eleazar fathered Matthan, and Matthan fathered Jacob,
16 and Jacob fathered Joseph, the kinsman-redeemer of Mariam, out of whom YAHUSHUA was born, the One called Messiah.
17 So all the generations from Abraham to David were fourteen generations, and from David to the deportation to Babylon, fourteen generations, and from the deportation to Babylon until the Messiah, fourteen generations.
This is from Prophecy 105, YAHUVEH said to put this up on all Prophecies from now on: I warned you a long time ago Elisabeth (Elisheva) not to name this Ministry after a man or a woman even before there was a Ministry. I put it in your spirit for none of this has been done by your hand, none of this has come forth from your mouth. It is from the Mouth of YAHUVEH that has given birth. It is from the Mouth of YAHUSHUA your MASHIACH that has given birth. It is from the Mouth of the RUACH ha KODESH your IMMAYAH that has given birth. If it had only been by your hand it would have failed long ago. It is by the SHKHINYAH GLORY’S Wind that blows across this earth, the Holy Wind of Revival, it is not by your breath or it would have failed. (Isaiah 42:8)

Torah Portion: The Covenant of YAHUVEH and the Promised Land
Prophecy 42 Enemies Drop Your Weapons! Both Spiritual And Carnal!
HORROR, HORROR, HORROR, weeping, lamentations, death and so many burials that there will not be room enough to put them in cemeteries. The hand of MY judgment, that once slapped you, now will turn into a fist and I will smash you. I the Great Elohim “I AM,” in MY mercy, warn every nation, every people, every kindred, every tongue, leave MY beloved Jerusalem alone. The blood of the fallen soaks into the ground and cries out to ME. The blood of the fallen in Israel has not been in vain. I hear the weeping and profound lamentations, of the people who love I, YAHUVEH. I hear MY Name called out by those that are slain.
What country, what nation have the loyalty, what state, what province, what island have the love and the loyalty Israel shows forth as they battle to keep the land, the Great Elohim “I AM” YAHUVEH gave to their forefathers long ago? I speak to the spiritual leaders, remember David and Goliath? David did not run from Goliath, but ran toward Goliath, knowing the battle is MINE. The enemy now brings strange gods into your land oh Israel, and yet they are no god at all. The women and men of the enemies bring their strange doctrines and would try to entangle the people of Israel in a form of bondage that I have not decreed. Israel, I speak forth out of this handmaiden, remember you are the land of milk and honey, you are the land Abraham blessed, you have nothing to fear, but fear itself.
Precede every battle as it was done in the past with musicians, songs of praise, worship, and prayers. Do you not believe the words in the Torah? Israel, you are the nation the world does not understand, so envied and abused, so hated without cause. For you desire peace and yet you have never known peace. You give away land and homes that I have not told you to give away, merely to keep peace. Do you not know the more you give, the more they will demand? Do you not know, you cannot satisfy the spirit of greed? Look to ME oh Israel, once again for the Great Elohim “I AM” YAHUVEH is your deliverer.
The celebration of Hanukkah comes, for all those who observe the celebration, expect miracles once again for I am the Light that will light your path in darkness. Cover your leaders in prayer for they are being sifted by satan like grains of sand. You had been betrayed by leaders you’ve trusted from the smallest to the greatest for filthy lucre which will not buy their soul. Fast and pray, for MY perfect Will to be done for I am pent up in anger at the murder, lying, deceitfulness that is being done.
I command all to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. If you think it is bad now, the killing only just begun, but do not fear for your Father Elohim YAHUVEH sees and hears. My last command is bless those that bless you oh Israel, do not turn away anyone who loves Israel, Jerusalem, or MY chosen people. I will bless all those that bless you oh Israel! I the Great Elohim “I AM” will curse all those who curse you oh Israel.
Prophecy 37 Bless And Pray For The Peace Of Jerusalem!
Why do you think MY Father has blessed it in ways he has blessed no other nation? MY Blood was poured forth and now will bring forth secret treasures in this world untold! The evil ones will bite and gnash their teeth as they try to the riches control. They will argue amongst themselves who will bring Israel to her knees and the riches and spoils they will war to seize. But MY Father speaks forth and says to the enemies you will not continue to divide and conqueror a nation and a people I have called, preordained as MINE!
You will NOT succeed in stealing from a people I call preordained as MINE. They pay a price just for carrying the name of Jew and I shall protect this nation called Israel in ways no one has ever dreamed possible. I shall protect anyone with a love for Jerusalem! Although they deny MY Son YAHUSHUA, now there is coming a time when the name of YAHUSHUA will again be revered. This is now why the evil tries to pass laws that will forbid the name even to be spoken under penalty of prison, torture and death. Satan now controls the government of this nation and nations around this world. You are to submit to the governments only as much as they submit to YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA. For the government is upon the shoulders of YAHUSHUA HE alone paid the price! MY People are to obey the God they serve and not Man. Pray the corrupt governments will be defeated and the Holy ones will arise taking back what was stolen.
The land Israel has been dividing are like MY garments, gambled and sold to the highest bidder. But I, YAHUSHUA, will give back to Israel what has been stolen and her enemies shall flee in seven different directions! Oh woe to you who lift your hand to the apple of MY eye although in this nation the Name of YAHUSHUA is now despised, I shall turn them back to their first love, and then they will realize through their suffering they and YAHUSHUA are My Beloved and My Beloved is MINE!
Israel shall lack the water for they lack the Living Water to which I will send others, to bring that Living Water and to all that drink, their thirst will be quenched not only in the spiritual but in the physical. All those that refuse MY Son YAHUSHUA, their tongues will hang out like a parched man in the desert. As YAHUSHUA thirsted, so shall those who reject his gift at Calvary. How many will go forth like the woman at the well? How many will be willing to offer the nation of Israel MY Living Water? For they thirst and know not what they thirst for? They are called a Holy Land, yet only a small remnant is Holy before ME.

Prophecy 63 Oh Yisrael Where Is Your Blood Sacrifice
Oh Israel, Oh how I weep. Yes, I, YAHUVEH, Creator of all, Creator of even time itself. I weep for I have poured out MY love, poured out MY mercy, given MY very best, MY Beloved Son YAHUSHUA. I, YAHUVEH, gave YAHUSHUA who poured out HIS Blood to redeem the sins of Adam and Eve. Oh Israel, the Blood of YAHUSHUA still saturates your soil. Why do you think satan hates you? Why do you think he hates you more than any people or any nation? Because I, YAHUVEH, came to you in the flesh through MY Son YAHUSHUA, MY Beloved Son.
Abraham only thought he had to sacrifice Isaac. Abraham only had to experience that feeling of great sorrow and grief as he held a dagger above his beloved son thinking there would be no ram to offer up as a sacrifice, as a blood sacrifice. But in faith he Abraham ready to slay his son Isaacbelieved that I, YAHUVEH, would raise up Isaac from the dead if need be, just as I did MY Son YAHUSHUA. It is because of who I, YAHUVEH, am. Because of who I am, because of MY love that has no beginning nor end for those called MY Children and only those who are called MY Children are those calling out to ME in the Name of MY Son YAHUSHUA. Only I stopped Abraham from sacrificing his son Isaac. I provided a ram hidden from Abraham’s view until the right time.
Abraham was not perfect. Neither was Isaac. Israel pays the price of Abraham’s sin that brought forth Ishmael and the seed of Ishmael. Abraham needed a blood sacrifice also. It was the ram that was symbolized that was caught in the thicket. This symbolized MY Beloved Son YAHUSHUA, the only Lamb of YAHUVEH, the perfect Lamb without sin or spot or blemish. The ram was caught in the thicket. MY Beloved Son YAHUSHUA cried out to ME. HE [was] also caught in the thicket of MY will. “Father, if it all be possible, take this cup from ME, but not as I will, but as YOUR will be done.” YAHUSHUA was symbolized as that ram, as that blood sacrifice that Abraham had that day which took Isaac’s place.
YAHUSHUA’s Blood sacrifice is the only human sacrifice that is Holy enough to wash away the sins of all mankind. If mankind will but accept and obey this new Blood Covenant I gave at Calvary through MY Beloved Son YAHUSHUA, this is MY promise to MY faithful children who love YAHUSHUA and accept this new Blood Covenant. As I didn’t leave MY Beloved Son in the tomb, I raised Him from the dead and He ascended into Heaven, so will I do the same for you. All MY Children have to do is receive, believe, love and try your best to obey MY Commandments. Is this so hard?
I speak to those who refuse MY Son YAHUSHUA as MESSIAH. Where is your blood sacrifice? All know there must be a blood sacrifice for the remission of sins. What animal is perfect? What human? None, except MY Beloved Son YAHUSHUA’s. I, YAHUVEH, cancelled the old blood covenant to give mankind a better blood covenant. This is the only way I can forgive your sins. There is no other way to MY throne, for ME to answer your prayers, except through the name YAHUSHUA, through HIS shed Blood at Calvary for the remission of your sins. There is no other intercessor before ME other than MY Son YAHUSHUA. Mohammed can’t save you. Calling upon Abraham can’t save you. Allah can’t save you. Only calling upon the name YAHUSHUA will save you. Study the Torah as I have spoken before through this handmaiden. Those that think keeping the Torah alone will save them must realize all have sinned and fell short of MY Glory [Romans 3:23]. Breaking one commandment is the same as breaking all the commandments. You need a Savior. YAHUSHUA is that Savior. Those that refuse to accept YAHUSHUA as their Lord and Savior, the MESSIAH of all mankind, will not be judged by YAHUSHUA, but will instead stand before Moses who will open the Book of Judgment without mercy. For he warned Israel there would be a new covenant coming, a new Blood Covenant. He knew that it could not appease MY wrath. This was only temporary for the animal sacrifices.
Oh Israel, I sent the new Blood Covenant to be born on your own soil. I did miracles through the Name of YAHUSHUA. I used Him to be a human sacrifice, a human blood sacrifice, the only perfect blood atonement for sin. And I arose HIM from the dead in the soil of Israel.
LECH LECHA -GO FORTH!
“ELOHIM said to Abram, ‘Go forth [lech lecha] from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you … and I will bless you.” (Genesis 12:1–2)
Our last Torah reading, Noach (Noah), concluded with a genealogy of Shem, Noah’s son. That genealogy ended with Terah, father of Abram, Nahor and Haran. Terah took his son Abram and Abram’s wife Sarai, as well as Lot, son of Haran, (Haran) who had died, out of Ur of the Chaldeans and headed toward the Land of Canaan.
Instead of reaching their destination, however, they settled at Haran where Terah lived out the rest of his days
In this week’s Parasha, at ELOHIM’s command, Abram carries on with his father’s unfinished mission — to reach the Land of Canaan, the name given to the Promised Land at this time.
The Covenant of YAHUVEH and the Promised Land
“Abram passed through the land to the place of Shechem, as far as the terebinth tree of Moreh. And the Canaanites were then in the land.” (Genesis 12:6)
Abram and his wife, Sarai, become the first settlers of the Holy Land by packing up their belongings and homesteading in Elon Moreh, near Shechem (modern day Nablus) in Israel’s heartland of Samaria.
YAHUVEH, made an eternal promise to give the Land to Abram and his offspring: “To your offspring will I give this land.” (Genesis 12:7)
At that time, the Canaanites controlled the land; nevertheless, YAHUVEH reassured Abram that it would one day belong to his offspring — the Jewish People.
We may see a clear correlation to the political situation in the Middle East today.
The Palestinians have gained control of large tracts of land within Israel, which leaves many Israelis wanting to see the Promised Land divided. They believe that establishing a separate Palestinian state beside a Jewish state will create peace.
Many around the globe also think two states for two peoples is a fair solution because some of the Arabs that currently live in Israel have roots that go back several centuries. Most, however, came in a massive wave of immigration from surrounding lands in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Therefore, some wonder if the Jewish People have returned to the Land in vain.
Rivers of tears and pools of blood have been shed in order to reclaim our God-given land. Did all those who risked and even sacrificed their lives to drain malaria-infested swamps, to re-plant the land, to re-build the cities, and to defend this nation against the hordes of enemies do so in vain?
Have the Jewish People survived the threat of extermination throughout 2,000 years of persecution — pogroms and inquisitions and even the Holocaust — in the lands of their exile, finally to return to their Promised Land, just to be driven out once and for all by hate-crazed, religious radicals?
Only if GOD breaks HIS covenant.
“‘Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet MY unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor MY covenant of peace be removed,’ says YAHUVEH, who has compassion on you.’”
YAHUVEH made more than a promise to Abram. In Genesis 15, YAHUVEH made a blood covenant with him that included giving this land to his descendants through Isaac and Jacob as an eternal inheritance:
“I will establish MY covenant as an everlasting covenant between ME and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your ELOHIM and the GOD of your descendants after you. The whole land of Canaan, where you now reside as a foreigner, I will give as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you; and I will be their GOD.” (Genesis 17:7–8; also Genesis 15:5–7)
“To you [Isaac] and your descendants I will give all these lands and will confirm the oath I swore to your father Abraham /YAHUVEH changed Abram’s name to Abraham in Genesis 17:5.” (Genesis 26:3)
“I am YAHUVEH, the GOD of your father Abraham and the GOD of Isaac. I will give you [Jacob] and your descendants the land on which you are lying. Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and … all peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring.” (Genesis 28:13–14)
Abram did not have to do a thing to establish this covenant with YAHUVEH. In chapter 15 of Genesis, GOD alone walked through the animals that Abram offered, indicating that the covenant he cut with Abram was unconditional.
YAHUVEH actually caused a deep sleep to fall on Abram when HE made the covenant with him, probably to emphasize that YAHUVEH alone is making this unconditional promise and also to prevent Abram from walking through it (Genesis 15:8–20). In ancient covenant practices, both parties would walk through the offering if it were conditional.
With so many Scriptures declaring YAHUVEH’s everlasting promise, our claim to this land is not political, but by Divine right.
Of course, there is great opposition to YAHUVEH’s Word. The Canaanites had their weapons and allies, and so do the enemies of Israel today; both gained some temporary victories in their efforts to claim the land as their own but, ultimately, YAHUVEH owns the land and can give it to whomever HE wishes.
HIS everlasting covenant with Abram will stand.
Walking the Land as the First Hebrew
“Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you.” (Genesis 13:17)
When YAHUVEH commanded Abram to walk the length and breadth of the land, it was not just for a little sightseeing stroll; it fulfilled a legal custom in ancient times to claim ownership of a property by walking through it.
Egyptian and Hittite kings would regularly leave their grand palaces to take a ceremonial walk through their countryside in order to confirm their ownership of the land.
In Mesopotamia, according to ancient records, the seller of a property would lift his foot off the land and purposefully set the buyers foot upon it. This may further explain the cultural context of the Scripture in which YAHUVEH promises to give Joshua “every place the sole of his foot treads upon.”
“I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses.” (Joshua 1:3)
Legally, then, when Abram walked the length and breadth of the land, he took possession of it for himself and his descendants as an eternal possession.
Abram’s walk through the land was as a vial of perfume that only gives off scent when moved, wafting the fragrance of faith throughout the Promised Land.
Whereas Noah walked “with” YAHUVEH; Abram walked “before” YAHUVEH, paving the way for the world to come to the knowledge of faith in the one true GOD.
Abram had an ability to cross over borders: He not only crossed from Mesopotamia to Canaan, he courageously crossed from a world of idol worship to a world in which the one true GOD was worshiped, instead.
The world stood on one side and he stood with truth on the other.
He crossed over into his destiny, and his descendants inherited the reward and blessing as well as the characteristic of being those who cross over.
For this reason, Abram became the first person to be called an Ivri—the one who crossed over. This word comes from the Hebrew verb la’avor /to cross over and is transliterated into English simply as a Hebrew.
Lech Lecha, therefore, is one of the most exciting chapters in the Torah (first five books of the Bible), since it chronicles the adventures of the first Hebrew with ELOHIM.
May we, too, come to this life-altering place where we “cross over” into a new, exciting adventure in our life with HIM.
Abram Wins The War of the Kings
“And there was strife between the herdsmen of Abram’s livestock and the herdsmen of Lot’s livestock.” (Genesis 13:7)
In chapter 13 of Genesis, Abram and his nephew Lot have become quite wealthy. Their herds are so large that the land cannot support all of them. (Genesis 13:6)
Consequently, strife breaks out between the herdsmen of Abram and Lot, and instead of diffusing the situation, they decide to part ways.
We may perhaps see a hint of the underlying source of strife through the choice that Lot makes.
When Abram offers him first choice of the area, Lot chooses the best for himself, instead of insisting that his uncle, who has treated him much like a son, take the best.
Lot chooses the green, fertile plains of the Jordan near Sodom and Gomorrah and Abram moves on to the plains of Mamre (Hebron).
“And Lot lifted his eyes and saw all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere (before ELOHIM destroy Sodom and Gomorrah) like the garden of ELOHIM, like the land of Egypt as you go toward Zoar. Then Lot chose for himself all the plain of Jordan, and Lot journeyed east. And they separated from each other.” (Genesis 13:10–11)
Although the grass may be greener on the other side of the hill, that fact does not mean it is better, nor does it mean we should go there. Greener pastures do not guarantee that YAHUVEH’s blessing is there for the taking.
Soon after parting company, Lot needs Abram’s aid when four powerful kings capture all of Sodom, including Lot. Abram rounds up a small army of 318 men and frees the captives:
“And he [Abram] and his servants deployed against them at night and struck them; he pursued them as far as Hobah, which is to the north of Damascus. And he brought back all the possessions; he also brought back his kinsman, Lot, with his possessions, as well as the women and the people.” (Genesis 14:15–16)
Not only did Abram reveal military prowess and valor in the War of the Kings, he also showed great self-sacrifice and kindness toward his nephew Lot. With a very small army, vastly outnumbered by the four kings and their armies, Abram risked his own life to save his nephew’s.
Such valor is demonstrated by our police officers and ordinary citizens who confront terrorists on the streets of Jerusalem.
Here in Israel, we are all mishpacha (family); therefore, just as with Abram, Israelis do not allow themselves to succumb to fear or freeze at the possible consequences of protecting civilians; instead, many rush to protect strangers at the risk of their own lives.
Let us pray that Israelis and their leaders will be strong and of good courage, sincerely seeking YAHUVEH, as the end-time threat of annihilation plays out against this nation.
The Destiny of Abraham — Eternal Salvation
Parasha Lech Lecha spans Abram’s life from the age of 75 to 99.
That means he lived most of his life without really knowing his destiny — not until YAHUVEH revealed it to him through a covenant that led to a name change. Abraham waited again a long time before he began to see its fulfillment through a son named Isaac.
In this Parasha, ELOHIM tells him, “No longer shall your name be called Abram [אַבְרָם] but your name shall be Abraham [אַבְרָהָם]; for I have made you a father of many nations [or Gentiles — אַב-הֲמוֹן גּוֹיִם].” (Genesis 17:5)
With the addition of only one Hebrew letter — the letter hey (ה) — Abram (exalted father) became Abraham—exalted father of a multitude of nations.
The Hebrew consonant ה is often used as an abbreviation for the name of GOD and is found twice in GOD’s personal name — YAHUVEH. So by adding this letter to Abram’s name, GOD added HIMSELF as Abba Father to Abraham’s nature, character, and destiny.
By adding the letter ‘hey’ to Abraham’s wife’s name, it changed from Sarai (My Princess) to Sarah (Princess of the whole world).
For this reason, it is traditionally believed that a change of name can change one’s destiny.
YAHUVEH did not only promise Abraham the land of Israel, but also that he would be a blessing to the nations(Genesis 12:2; 18:18; 22:17–18; 26:3–4).
Today, there are countless ways in which YAHUVEH fulfills this promise to Abraham through the nation of Israel. Israel’s technological, agricultural, and medical innovations and advances are helping people around the globe.
But the most meaningful fulfillment of this promise is the Word of YAHUVEH that the Jewish People have faithfully protected and brought to the world, as well as eternal salvation through faith in YAHUSHUA Ha MASHIACH:
“All praise to YAHUVEH, the Father of our LORD YAHUSHUA the Messiah. It is by HIS great mercy that we have been born again, because YAHUVEH raised YAHUSHUA the Messiah from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, and we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay.
“And through your faith, YAHUVEH is protecting you by HIS power until you receive this salvation, which is ready to be revealed on the last day for all to see.” (1 Peter 1:3–5)
YAHUVEH’s destiny for Abraham to become the father of a multitude of nations (even Gentile nations) is fulfilled in a significant way through YAHUSHUA, who is a direct descendant of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Matthew 1:2–17).
Anyone from any tribe, tongue, or nationality who declares faith in YAHUSHUA becomes an heir of Abraham:
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Messiah YAHUSHUA. And if you are Messiah’s then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Galatians 3:27–29)
