Va’era -And He Appeared
Shabbat Shalom !
Welcome to Va’era -And He Appeared, this week’s Parasha (Torah Portion).
Ezekiel 28:25 – 29:21;
2And ELOHIM spoke to Moses and said to him, I am YAHUVEH.
3And I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob as El Shaddai, and by My name YAHUVEH have I not been known to them.
4And I also established My covenant with them to give to them the land of Canaan, the land of their travels, in which they traveled in it.
5And I also have heard the groaning of the sons of Israel, whom the Egyptians are enslaving. And I have remembered My covenant.
6Therefore, say to the sons of Israel, I am YAHUVEH, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of Egypt, and will deliver you from their slavery. And I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments.
7And I will take you for Myself for a people, and I will be for you a ELOHIM. And you shall know that I am YAHUVEH your ELOHIM, the One bringing you out from under the burdens of Egypt.
8And I will bring you into the land which I raised My hand to give to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. And I will give it to you for a possession. I am YAHUVEH!
9And Moses spoke to the sons of Israel. And they did not listen to Moses, from anguish of spirit and from harsh bondage.
10And YAHUVEH spoke to Moses, saying,
11Go, speak to Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he may send away the sons of Israel from his land.
12And Moses spoke before YAHUVEH, saying, Behold the sons of Israel have not listened to me. And how should Pharaoh hear me, I being of uncircumcised lips?
13And YAHUVEH spoke to Moses and to Aaron and He directed them as to the sons of Israel, and as to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring out the sons of Israel from the land of Egypt.
14These were the heads of the houses of their fathers: The sons of Reuben the first-born of Israel: Hanoch, Pallu, Hezron and Carmi; these were the families of Reuben.
15And the sons of Simeon: Jemuel, Jamin, Ohad, Jachin, Zohar and Shaul, the son of a Canaanitess; these were the families of Simeon.
16And these were the names of the sons of Levi by their generations: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. And the years of the life of Levi were a hundred and thirty seven years.
17The sons of Gershon: Libni and Shimei, by their families.
18And the sons of Kohath: Amram, Izhar, Hebron and Uzziel. And the years of the life of Kohath were a hundred and thirty three years.
19And the sons of Merari: Mahli, and Mushi. These were the families of Levi according to their generations.
20And Amram took his aunt Jochebed to him for a wife. And she bore to him Aaron and Moses. And the years of the life of Amram were a hundred and thirty seven years.
21And the sons of Izhar: Korah, Nepheg and Zichri.
22And the sons of Uzziel: Mishael, Elzaphan and Zithri.
23And Aaron took Elisheba the daughter of Amminadab, the sister of Nahshon, to him for a wife. And she bore to him Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar.
24And the sons of Korah: Assir, Elkanah and Abiasaph. These were the families of the Korahites.
25And Aaron’s son Eleazar took of the daughters of Putiel for his wife. And she bore to him Phinehas. These were the heads of the fathers of the Levites by their families.
26That is the Aaron and Moses to whom YAHUVEH said, Bring out the sons of Israel from the land of Egypt, according to their armies.
27Those were the ones speaking to Pharaoh king of Egypt to bring out the sons of Israel from Egypt; it was Moses and Aaron.
28And it happened on the day YAHUVEH spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt:
29YAHUVEH spoke to Moses, saying, I am YAHUVEH! Speak to Pharaoh king of Egypt all which I am about to speak to you.
30And Moses said before YAHUVEH, Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips. How could Pharaoh listen to me?
*~Exodus Chapter 7 ~*
1And YAHUVEH said to Moses, See, I have made you a ELOHIM to Pharaoh; and your brother Aaron shall be your prophet.
2You shall speak all that I command you, and your brother Aaron shall speak to Pharaoh. And he will send away the sons of Israel from his land.
3And I will harden the heart of Pharaoh. And I will multiply My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt.
4And Pharaoh will not listen to you. And I will put My hand on Egypt, and will bring My armies, My people, the sons of Israel, from the land of Egypt with great judgments.
5And the Egyptians shall know that I am YAHUVEH when I send forth My hand on Egypt and bring out the sons of Israel from their midst.
6And Moses and Aaron did as YAHUVEH commanded them, so they did.
7And Moses was a son of eighty years, and Aaron was a son of eighty three years when they spoke to Pharaoh.
8And YAHUVEH spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,
9When Pharaoh speaks to you, saying, Give a miracle for yourselves, you shall say to Aaron, Take your staff and throw it before Pharaoh; and let it become a crocodile.
10And Moses and Aaron came to Pharaoh, and they did so, as YAHUVEH had commanded. And Aaron threw his staff before Pharaoh and before his servants. And it became a crocodile.
11And Pharaoh also called wise men and the sorcerers. And they, the priests of Egypt, also performed by their secret arts.
12And they each one threw down his staff, and they became crocodiles. But Aaron’s staff swallowed their staffs.
13And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not listen to them, as YAHUVEH had said.
14And YAHUVEH said to Moses, The heart of Pharaoh is heavy; he refuses to send away the people.
15Go to Pharaoh in the morning. Behold, he is about to go out to the water. And you stand to meet him on the lip of the river. And you shall take in your hand the staff that was turned into a hissing creature.
16And you shall say to him, YAHUVEH the ELOHIM of the Hebrews has sent me to you, saying, Send away My people, so that they may serve Me in the wilderness. And, behold, you have not listened until now.
17So says YAHUVEH, By this you shall know that I am YAHUVEH: Behold, I am about to strike the water in the river with the staff in My hand, and it shall be turned to blood.
18And the fish in the river will die, and the river will stink, and the Egyptians will become weary of drinking water from the river.
19And YAHUVEH said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Take your staff, and stretch out your hand over the waters of Egypt, over the rivers, over their canals, and over their pools, and over every body of their waters, so that they may become blood. And blood shall be in all the land of Egypt, both in wooden and in stone vessels.
20And Moses and Aaron did so, as YAHUVEH had commanded. And he lifted up the staff and struck the water which was in the river before Pharaoh’s eyes, and before his servants’ eyes. And all the water in the river turned to blood.
21And the fish in the river died, and the river stunk. And the Egyptians were not able to drink water from the Nile. And the blood was in all the land of Egypt.
22And the magicians of Egypt did so by their secret arts. And Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he did not listen to them, as YAHUVEH had said.
23And Pharaoh turned and went into his house. And he did not set his heart to this also.
24And all the Egyptians dug around the river to drink water, for they were not able to drink from the water of the river.
25And seven days were fulfilled after YAHUVEH struck the river.
*~Exodus Chapter 8 ~*
1And YAHUVEH said to Moses, Go to Pharaoh, and say to him, So says YAHUVEH, Send away My people that they may serve Me.
2And if you refuse to send them away, behold, I am about to smite all your territory with frogs.
3And the river will swarm with frogs. And they shall go up and enter into your house, and into your bedroom, and on your couch, and into your servants’ house, and on your people, and into your ovens and into your kneading troughs.
4And the frogs will come up on you, and on your people, and on all your servants.
5And YAHUVEH said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Stretch out your hand with your staff over the rivers, over the canals, and over the pools. And bring up frogs on the land of Egypt.
6And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt, and the frogs came up and covered the land of Egypt.
7And the priests did so with their secret arts. And they brought up the frogs on the land of Egypt.
8And Pharaoh called Moses and Aaron, and said, Pray to YAHUVEH that He may remove the frogs from me and from my people. And I will send away the people that they may sacrifice to YAHUVEH.
9And Moses said to Pharaoh, Glory over me. For when shall I pray for you and for your servants and for your people, to cut off the frogs from you, and from your house, that they may be left only in the river?
10And he said, For tomorrow. And he said, According to your word, so that you may know that none is like YAHUVEH our ELOHIM.
11And the frogs will depart from you, and from your houses, and from your servants, and from your people. They will only be in the river.
12And Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh. And Moses cried to YAHUVEH concerning the frogs which He had set on Pharaoh.
13And YAHUVEH did according to the word of Moses. And the frogs died from the houses, from the courts, and from the fields.
14And they gathered them in heaps and heaps; and the land stunk.
15And Pharaoh saw that there was relief. And he made his heart heavy, and he did not listen to them, as YAHUVEH had said.
16And YAHUVEH said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Stretch out your staff and strike the dust of the earth, and let it become lice in all the land of Egypt.
17And they did so, and Aaron stretched out his hand with his staff and struck the dust of the earth. And the lice were on man and on beast. All the dust of the earth became lice in the land of Egypt.
18And the priests performed with their secret arts to bring forth lice, and they could not. And the lice were on man and on beast.
19And the priests said to Pharaoh, It is the finger of ELOHIM. And Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he did not listen to them, as YAHUVEH had said.
20And YAHUVEH said to Moses, Get up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh. Behold, he is about to go out to the water. And say to him, So says YAHUVEH, Send away My people that they may serve Me.
21And if you do not send away My people, behold, I am about to send swarms of flies on you, and on your servants, and on your people, and on your house. And the houses of the Egyptians will be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground on which they are.
22And in that day I will separate the land of Goshen with My people resting on it, that there be no swarms of flies, so that you may know that I am YAHUVEH in the midst of the earth.
23And I will put a distinction between My people and your people. This miracle shall be for tomorrow.
24And YAHUVEH did so. And teeming swarms of flies came into Pharaoh’s house, and the house of his servants, and into all the land of Egypt. And the land was destroyed before the swarms of flies.
25And Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, Go! Sacrifice to your ELOHIM in the land.
26And Moses said, It is not right to do so, for we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to YAHUVEH our ELOHIM. Behold! If we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, will they not stone us?
27We will go into the wilderness, a journey of three days, and sacrifice to YAHUVEH our ELOHIM, as He may say to us.
28And Pharaoh said, I will send you away, and you may sacrifice to YAHUVEH your ELOHIM in the wilderness; only do not go very far off. And pray for me.
29And Moses said, Behold, I am about to go out from you, and to pray to YAHUVEH. And the swarms of flies will depart from Pharaoh, and from his servants, and from his people tomorrow. But do not let Pharaoh continue to deceive, not to send the people to sacrifice to YAHUVEH.
30And Moses went out from Pharaoh. And he prayed to YAHUVEH.
31And YAHUVEH did according to the word of Moses, and the swarms of flies departed from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people; and not one was left.
32And Pharaoh made heavy his heart this time also, and he did not send away the people.
*~Exodus Chapter 9 ~*
1And YAHUVEH said to Moses, Go in to Pharaoh and say to him, So says YAHUVEH the ELOHIM of the Hebrews, Send away My people that they may serve Me.
2And if you refuse to send away, and you still hold onto them,
3behold the hand of YAHUVEH is going to be on your livestock in the field, on the horses, on the donkeys, on the camels, on the herds, and on the flocks, a very heavy pestilence.
4And YAHUVEH will make a distinction between Israel’s livestock and Egypt’s livestock. Also of all that belongs to the sons of Israel, not a thing will die.
5And YAHUVEH set a time, saying, Tomorrow YAHUVEH will do this thing in the land.
6And YAHUVEH did this thing on the next day, and all the livestock of Egypt died. And from the livestock of the sons of Israel, not one died.
7And Pharaoh sent, and behold, not even one was dead from Israel’s livestock! And Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he did not send away the people.
8And YAHUVEH said to Moses and to Aaron, Take for yourselves the fullness of your hands of soot from the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the heaven before Pharaoh’s eyes.
9And let it become dust on all the land of Egypt, and let it become boils breaking out into sores on man and on livestock in all the land of Egypt.
10And they took soot of the furnace and stood before Pharaoh. And Moses sprinkled it toward the heavens, and it became a boil breaking out into sores on man and on livestock.
11And the priests were not able to stand before Moses, because of the boils. For the boils were on the priests and on all the Egyptians.
12And YAHUVEH made heavy Pharaoh’s heart, and he did not listen to them, as YAHUVEH had said to Moses.
13And YAHUVEH said to Moses, Get up early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh, and say to him, So says YAHUVEH the ELOHIM of the Hebrews, Send away My people that they may serve Me.
14For at this time I am going to send all My plagues to your heart, and on your servants, and on your people, so that you may know that none is like Me in all the land.
15For now I have sent forth My hand and have stricken you and your people with pestilence, and you have been destroyed from the earth.
16And for this reason I have made you stand, in order to cause you to see My power, and in order to declare My name in all the land.
17You still are exalting yourself against My people, so as not to send them away.
18Behold! I will rain very heavy hail about this time tomorrow, such as has never been in Egypt from the day of its foundation until now.
19And now send out, bring your livestock to safety, and all belonging to you in the field. All men and livestock found in the field, and not brought to the house, the hail will come on them, and they will die.
20Of the servants of Pharaoh, the one who feared the Word of YAHUVEH made his slaves and his livestock flee to the houses.
21And the one who did not set his heart on the Word of YAHUVEH left his slaves and his livestock in the field.
22And YAHUVEH said to Moses, Stretch out your hand to the heavens, so that hail may be in all the land of Egypt, on man, and on livestock, and on every plant of the field in the land of Egypt.
23And Moses stretched out his staff to the heavens. And YAHUVEH gave sounds and hail. And fire came down to the earth, and YAHUVEH rained hail on the land of Egypt.
24And there was hail, and fire flashing in the midst of the hail, very heavy, which never had been in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.
25And the hail struck in all the land of Egypt, all that was in the field, from men and to livestock. And the hail struck every plant of the field, and it broke in pieces every tree of the field.
26Only in the land of Goshen, where the sons of Israel lived, there was no hail.
27And Pharaoh sent and called Moses and Aaron, and said to them, I have sinned this time. YAHUVEH is the righteous One, and I and my people the wicked ones.
28Pray to YAHUVEH and let it be enough of the thunders and hail of ELOHIM. And I will send you away and you shall not continue any longer.
29And Moses said to him, As I go out of the city I will spread out my hands to YAHUVEH. The thunder will cease, and the hail will not still be, so that you may know that the earth belongs to YAHUVEH.
30And as for you and your servants, I know that you do not yet fear before YAHUVEH ELOHIM.
31And the flax and the barley were stricken. For the barley was in head, and the flax in bud.
32And the wheat and the spelt were not stricken, for they were late.
33And Moses went out from Pharaoh, from the city, and he spread out his hands to YAHUVEH. And the thunder and the hail ceased. And rain was not poured out toward the earth.
34And Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunder had ceased, and he continued to sin. And he made his heart heavy, he and his servants.
35And Pharaoh’s heart was made strong, and he did not send away the sons of Israel, as YAHUVEH had said by the hand of Moses.
Ezekiel 28:25 – 29:21;
25So says Adonai YAHUVEH: When I have gathered the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are dispersed, and have been sanctified in them in the sight of the nations, then they shall dwell on their land which I have given to My servant Jacob.
26And they shall dwell in it securely and shall build houses and plant vineyards. Yes, they shall dwell securely, when I have done judgments on all those who hate them round about them. And they shall know that I am YAHUVEH their ELOHIM.
*~Ezekiel Chapter 29 ~*
1In the tenth year, in the tenth month, in the twelfth of the month, the Word of YAHUVEH was to me, saying,
2Son of man, set your face against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and prophesy against him and against Egypt, all of it.
3Speak and say, So says Adonai YAHUVEH: Behold, I am against you, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great monster who lies in the midst of his rivers, who has said, My river is mine, and I, even I, have made it.
4But I will put hooks in your jaws, and I will cause the fish of your rivers to stick to your scales. And I will bring you up from the midst of your rivers, and all the fish of your rivers shall stick to your scales.
5And I will leave you to the wilderness, you and all the fish of your rivers. You shall fall on the face of the field, you shall not be removed or gathered. I have given you to the beasts of the field and to the birds of the heavens for food.
6And all those living in Egypt shall know that I am YAHUVEH, because they have been a staff of reed to the house of Israel.
7When they took hold of you by your hand, you crushed and tore off all their shoulder. And when they leaned on you, you shattered and made all their loins stand.
8So Adonai YAHUVEH says this: Behold, I will bring on you a sword and cut off from you man and beast.
9And the land of Egypt shall become for a desolation and a waste, and they shall know that I am YAHUVEH, because he has said, The river is mine, and I have made it.
10So, behold, I am against you and against your rivers, and I will give the land of Egypt for an utter waste and a desolation, from Migdol to Syene, even to the border of Ethiopia.
11The foot of man shall not pass through it, and the foot of beast shall not pass through it, and you shall not dwell forty years.
12And I will make the land of Egypt a desolation in the midst of the lands that are desolate, and her cities shall be desolate among the wasted cities forty years. And I will disperse Egypt among the nations and disperse them among the lands.
13For so says Adonai YAHUVEH: At the end of forty years, I will gather Egypt from the peoples there where they are scattered.
14And I will return the captivity of Egypt and will make them return to the land of Pathros, to the land of their origin. And they shall be a lowly kingdom there.
15It shall be the lowest of the kingdoms, and it shall not lift itself any more above the nations. And I will diminish them so that they will not rule over the nations.
16And it shall not be any more as confidence for the house of Israel, recalling the iniquity of their turning after them. And they shall know that I am Adonai YAHUVEH.
17And it happened in the twenty-seventh year, in the first month, in the first of the month, the Word of YAHUVEH was to me, saying,
18Son of man, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made his army to serve a great service against Tyre. Every head was made bald, and every shoulder was rubbed bare. Yet there was no hire to him or to his army from Tyre, for the service that he had served against it.
19So Adonai YAHUVEH says this: Behold, I will give to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon the land of Egypt. And he shall lift up her host and plunder her plunder, and seize her prey. And it shall be hire for his army.
20For his labor which he served against it, I have given him the land of Egypt, because they worked for Me, declares Adonai YAHUVEH.
21In that day I will make a horn spring up to the house of Israel, and I will give to you the opening of the mouth in their midst. And they shall know that I am YAHUVEH.
*~Revelation Chapter 15 ~*
1And I saw another sign in Heaven, great and marvelous: seven cherubs having the last seven plagues, because the anger of YAHUVEH was completed in them.
2And I saw, as a sea of glass having been mixed with fire. And the ones overcoming the beast, and its image, and its mark, of the number of its name, were standing on the glassy sea, having harps of YAHUVEH.
3And they sing the song of Moses the servant of YAHUVEH, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are Your works, YAHUVEH ELOHIM Almighty, righteous and true are Your ways, King of the saints.
4Who will not fear You, O YAHUVEH, and glorify Your name? For You only are holy. For all the nations will come and will worship before You, because Your righteousness has been revealed.
5And after these things I saw; and behold, the sanctuary of the tabernacle of the testimony in Heaven was opened!
6And the seven cherubs having the seven plagues came forth out of the sanctuary, having been clothed in clean and bright linen, and golden bands having been girded around the breasts.
7And one of the four living creatures gave to the seven cherubs seven golden bowls filled with the wrath of YAHUVEH who lives forever and ever.
8And the sanctuary was filled with the smoke of the glory of YAHUVEH, and with His power. And no one was able to enter into the sanctuary until the seven plagues of the seven cherubs should be completed.
*~Revelation Chapter 16 ~*
1And I heard a great voice out of the sanctuary saying to the seven cherubs: Go and pour out the bowls of the anger of YAHUVEH onto the earth.
2And the first went away and poured out his bowl onto the earth. And it came to be a bad and malignant sore onto the men, the ones having the mark of the beast, and the ones worshiping its image.
3And the second cherub poured out his bowl onto the sea. And it became blood, as of a dead one, and every soul of life died in the sea.
4And the third cherub poured out his bowl onto the rivers, and onto the springs of the waters; and it became blood.
5And I heard the cherub of the waters saying, You are righteous, O holy one who is, and who was, and who will be, because You judged these things,
6since they poured out the blood of the saints and of the prophets; and You gave blood to them to drink, for they were deserving.
7And I heard another out of the altar saying, Yes, YAHUVEH ELOHIM Almighty, Your judgments are true and righteous.
8And the fourth cherub poured out his bowl onto the sun. And it was given to him to burn men with fire.
9And men were burned with great heat. And they blasphemed the name of YAHUVEH, the One having authority over these plagues and they did not repent to give Him glory.
10And the fifth cherub poured out his bowl onto the throne of the beast. And its kingdom became darkened; and they gnawed their tongues from the pain.
11And they blasphemed the ELOHIM of Heaven, from their pains and from their sores. And they did not repent of their works.
12And the sixth cherub poured out his bowl onto the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up so that the way of the kings from the East might be prepared.
13And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
14For they are spirits of demons doing signs, which go forth to the kings of the earth, even of the whole inhabitable world to assemble them to the war of that day, the great day of El Shaddai.
15Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is the one watching and keeping his garments, that he does not walk naked, and they may see his shame.
16And He assembled them in the place having been called in Hebrew, Har-Megiddo.
17And the seventh cherub poured out his bowl into the air, and a great voice came from the throne from the sanctuary of Heaven, saying, It has happened!
18And voices and thunders and lightnings occurred. And a great earthquake occurred, such as did not occur since man came into being on the earth, such a huge earthquake, so great!
19And the great city came to be into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And Babylon the great was remembered before YAHUVEH, to give to her the cup of the wine of the anger of His wrath.
20And every island fled away, and mountains were not found.
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 (this entire ministry was birthed in 1995, and what he speaks here is of the anointing. I give all praise honor and glory to ABBA YAH YAHUSHUA and IMMAYAH, for it is their anointing in each page that you read, for it is not by my words, it is by the anointing of the RUAH ha KODESH that I can even hear what YAH speaks). 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: YAH redeems Israel’s Past, Present And Future
Elisabeth (Elisheva) All of us are sinners saved by grace and mercy and if this were not so, why would we need a Savior? It is the accuser of the brethren that accuses you and puts this guilt trip on you. I hear the Lord saying to you;
MY Sons and Daughters you have become your own worst enemy! Judging yourselves is not your job but your Heavenly Father’s job! Stop telling ME what I have forgiven and what I cannot forgive, repent of the past, yet those sins have been thrown into the sea of forgetfulness. MY Blood washed those sins away long ago. They are as far away as the east is from the west.
As for your recent thoughts and transgressions the greatest has been the beating you have given someone that I love far more than you can dare dream or understand. Someone I shed MY Blood for and gave MY Life for and would have if that someone would have only been you alone. Someone I was beaten beyond recognition for. That someone is you. Now stop trying to tell ME I made a mistake when I chose you. Are you trying to tell ME MY business? Are you trying to tell ME I make junk?
Are you trying to tell ME you know more than ALMIGHTY God your Lord and Savior? Are you trying to tell ME I make mistakes? Are you trying to tell ME the Blood I shed isn’t sufficient to wash you completely clean. Why would you take your life when it’s not yours to take? Why would you even consider robbing ME of the joy of proving it’s not the proud I chose to speak for ME in this world, it’s the humble. It’s those that feel unworthy that make themselves worthy by knowing this. You know this; I am only reminding you of what you know. I choose not those filled with their own strength, but the weakest for then the weak are made strong through YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH alone. You can do anything in YAHUSHUA’s name. I did not make a mistake when I chose you to speak in MY Name, I am ALMIGHTY God and I don’t make mistakes.
How long must I say this to you? When will you listen to ME? I chose you and I knew what material you were made of and yes what transgressions would tempt you before you were even born. I knew what demons you would wrestle even before satan sent them. I also know MY grace is sufficient in all things. I also know, as Shaul (Paul) said, “The harder MY son you try and please ME the more satan sends his demons to attack.” But be on guard against these attacks. Don’t put yourself in position to succumb to these attacks. Use the wisdom of the Lord that I have given you. You know what I am speaking of, if not ask ME, for this prophet speaking to you has felt all of these things in different ways. All MY true Prophets, even in biblical times, felt unworthy. If you didn’t, then I would deem you unusable if you think you’re sufficient without ME.
Hear ME MY beloved Sons and Daughters. Stop trying to kill what I have given life and life more abundantly. Stop receiving the spirit of insanity. Those that judge you insane understand not what I have spoken and shown you. For MY purpose I chose you. This is not a tug of war. I WILL WIN and you will lose if you continue on doubting that which you know to be true. You have been warned because I LOVE YOU! I have called you and there are those that think you’re insane for believing I speak to you and show you things that others don’t see. The only thing insane about you, is believing that I am punishing you for sins that have been long forgotten and forgiven. Only satan and you go fishing there, not your Savior. Stop trying to wash clothes that are already clean. Don’t you think MY Blood is sufficient? You preach it, now BELIEVE IT!
I have many more things to say to you and I shall, but for now digest what I have spoken for it is truth. I have given you MY armor to stand, MY Word to stand, MY Blood to cleanse and MY Name and Blood to heal and chase the demons away that torment your mind and body and Spirit. Now satan fears this power for I have given you the anointing to pray. Why aren’t you believing what you are praying? Do you think I am deaf? Do you think MY arms are too short to deliver you? Do you think MY Blood, Name, Word and armor is NOT sufficient? You, MY darling beloved, have angered ME for not believing what I have spoken.
Now you know these to be truth’s, so hold on tight and stop watching the waves on the troubled seas of your life, for this is why you’re drowning in depression and sinful thoughts at times. Instead keep your eyes on ME your Lord and Savior YAHUHUA ha MASHIACH and come and let’s walk on the water together. You’re smart enough to know I don’t mean physically but spiritually. Come take MY hand and believe and do not doubt. Leave your past behind you once and for all. Put your hand to the plow and labor in MY harvest field and don’t look back. One last thing, you seek reassurance from some that you have sought and how can they help you?
For to remove the splinter from your eye they must first remove the log in there own lives. In this world you shall have tribulation. YES, but I have overcome this world. NOW BELIEVE IT! As I spoke these words to MY handmaiden Sherrie Elijah [Elisheva Sherrie Eliyahu] I say unto you now, again preach it, teach it and believe it. Need I say more? Stop surrounding yourself with JOB comforters, for like JOB they did not help him they only hindered him and made him fight for the faith he believed in and made him defend his God. This is happening to you also. I give one more warning and take it literally if you die by your own hand, you will appear before an angry JEHOVAH (YAHUVEH). So stop trying to kill and destroy what I have blessed. You have been warned; stop being your own worst enemy.
For you have been doing satan’s job and he sits back and laughs. Now it’s your turn to laugh again at satan. Not in your strength, not in your power, not in your anointing or name, but in the Name above all NameS, YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH of Calvary and Nazareth and Almighty God YAHUVEH who has the earth for a footstool. You are MY beloved children whom I treasure both as sons and daughters, warriors, and Bride. I am coming again. Will you believe that again? Will you believe I am a rewarder to those that have given their all for ME? I have MY rewards with ME and they have your name on them. Do you really choose ME to give them to another? I have chosen you but the time is so short, no more time for self pity. Pity those that are not ready for MY coming.
Pity those that don’t believe I will provide for them in the Great Tribulation and save them from the great wrath that is to come. Pity those that think they are saved because of a religion and not a relationship with ME. Self pity is one of your greatest enemies; rebuke it today in MY Name. Get back to feeding MY sheep as I have commanded you to do. This day you have heard MY voice, now heed to it. Spoken this day by another prophet, Sherrie Elijah [Elisheva Sherrie Eliyahu], who has felt all of these things herself. But she knows faith is a fact not a feeling. All of you get busy and feed MY sheep. PREPARE MY BRIDE! Help her to be without spot of wrinkle by proclaiming that which makes satan shudder with fear.
For the truth is YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH’s Name IS VICTORY and I am coming again to prove it! SHOUT IT FROM THE INTERNET; SHOUT IT FROM THE HOUSE TOPS! Proclaim it in the streets and churches, radio and television YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH IS ON THE WAY! Gabriel has BLOWN his TRUMPET! The sound waves have been blocked with the raging battle that is going on in the Heavenlies now. Michael and satan and the angelic hosts fight, good against evil, but good always triumphs. There are those that have heard the shofar horn and those that have not.
Yet I tell you I have given the warning to those that have heard the horn, though Gabriel’s horn has only been heard by a few, thus far, it was only to prepare MY Bride for her GROOM DOTH COME! Do not be concerned that you have not heard the shofar horn of Gabriel yet for it is yet for an appointed time. Even the sound waves can only be blocked for an appointed time. Am I not the one that knows how far Heaven is from the earth? Even the calculations of this I have preordained. Quickly do what I have ordained and called you to do.

Torah Portion: What YAH Speaks A Word, It Will Be Done
MY beloved daughter this night you have pleased ME as you lay your flesh down and you say “I will not have it my way but I will have it YOUR way, YAHUSHUA. I will not walk my path but I am determined to walk YOUR path YAHUSHUA”. You please ME, MY beloved. For it is true that no one can love you like I do, but do not doubt this fact that I have put MY love in others for you. And how much more will I do through your own soulmate if you both will but let ME manifest that love through both of you. Anything that satan has fought this hard MY beloveds, do you not understand how great it is that it is MY will that it be done? For he only fights against MY plans. He seeks to divide what I have said I want to be put together, but I will not cross either of your will. Neither will I allow this to divide the sanctuary any longer for listen to your spiritual mother. For united you stand and divided you’ll fall so stay united, you need one another. You know not what is going to happen this year.
But MY beloved daughter it is I that put those words in your mouth, “I’m staying in the ark for it’s here that I am safe”. It doesn’t mean the storms will not batter at the doors and try to drown you, but what it does mean is I AM in the ark with you. And I will not allow the storms to drown you.
Satan fears when one of you pray, how much more when all that I have gathered there pray together for every one is anointed. But still I must say this: no one with the spirit of rebellion can remain. For rebellion is like a form of witchcraft and if anyone says, I demand to have it my way then I will have to send them on their way for it is like a leprosy. So, MY darling daughter you have fought the spirit of rebellion. All of you fight the spirit of rebellion and only know through MY NAME, MY BLOOD can you win that battle against the spirit of rebellion. For satan is the first to have rebelled; lucifer said he would have it his way. Now he tries to corrupt those who are MY children with the foul stench of the spirit of rebellion wherewith that one spirit, a legion can come of demons to torment, to possess, to oppress.
Do not allow the spirit of rebellion to come in. When you see it, cast it out! Laugh in the devil’s face. You will see! You will see! You will see! And this goes for all the YDS I speak this Word forth: laugh in the devil’s face!
Test the spirit that speaks means hold every thought captive! Is it I, YAHUSHUA, that would speak forth these words? Is it I, YAHUSHUA, that would give you these thoughts? You will see MY treasures how many times you will have to admit it is either your flesh or it was satan. But either way if I would not speak this, do not receive it. Oh how I love you, I have given you so much and I have so much more to give you if you will but trust ME.
Son, lay down your pride. Be willing to cut those barbed wires off your heart. For it is MY desire to bring you two together to minister side by side. It is MY desire to use all of these couples to minister unto other couples. All of you were brought forth by MY own hand. All of you have suffered for MY Name’s sake. All of you have warred together, laughed together, cried together. I have invested so much. There has not been one accident that has come to that sanctuary.
From this night forward if everyone will but obey: I, YAHUSHUA, will draw souls there.
MY darling daughter, no love can satisfy as MINE, but allow ME to love you through others. Never think when two soul mates come together it is perfection on earth. For there is no perfection on earth in a relationship, unless it is I speaking forth I [being] allowed to manifest forth, unless it’s MY love coming forth, combined with your love. By yourselves you will speak words of hate. By yourselves you will [speak] words of hurt. By yourselves you are selfish.
Lay down your own wants and look at the other through MY eyes. I will not tolerate any disrespect to the Bride! Do not disrespect one another for you pay such a price to belong to ME. All of you have the same desire to be MY bride, to have a testimony as unto Enoch so I can draw you by MY side!
Forgive the way that I forgive you. Take an eraser. Let not the others’ sins be written in ink. Let it have been in pencil. Now erase it. See yourself erasing it as if it never was. Is it not the way I erase your sins with MY shed blood, as far as the east is from the west? Do I say to you, “Remember, on such and such a day, at this time and this hour you sinned against ME?”
I have no record once you say “forgive me” and you mean it and you repent and you turn away from that evil. Stop being children and saying, “I want it my way”. Did I do it this way? Did I not set the example even going to the cross? Did I not say, “Oh ABBA have it your way, nevertheless if it all be possible” [O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. Mt. 26:39] And this cup cannot pass from ME., I want YOUR will to be done not MINE. This is a secret of being called the Bride!
No one is MY bride if they can’t get this part right. If they cannot lay their flesh down then how can they walk in the Spirit? How can they hear the precious HOLY SPIRIT that lives within you? If you cover your ears and you cover your eyes and you say, “I don’t want to hear what YOU have to say and I don’t want to see what YOU want to show me. I don’t want to speak what YOU want me to speak, I don’t want to go where you want me to go. I don’t want to do what YOU are telling me to do!” THEN DEPART FROM ME you are NOT MY Bride! So there! I’ve said it! How many ways must I say, “Get away from ME you so called disobedient bride”!? The world doesn’t want to hear it! The organized churches don’t want to hear it!
I am not just that sacrificial LAMB. I am not just the love of your life. I AM to be feared also! You don’t ever want to taste the wrath of the LAMB (Rev. 6:16). I love you enough to warn! The coming of the days of doom are nigh. You do not want to be left behind. No one can compare to the love I have for you and MY love is the FATHER’S love, and MY love is the RUACH HA KODESH’S love. WE are ALL combined. No one can compare with OUR love for you. But do not be deceived. For no one can compare with OUR wrath either. They don’t want to preach it so I raised up this ministry to speak it. I put in every one of MY Bride a fear not to offend [ME]. When they repent, they do it with tears. They say, “YAHUSHUA I don’t want to hurt YOU.”
The enemies, they say, “You can’t sin away grace”. The enemies lie. They test ME again and again, time after time. They say, “Because we can do anything we want to do now! It’s all about the cross. You’re not allowed to judge me. You’re not to tell me that my soul is lost” and they don’t even know ME. It is the letter that killeth and the spirit that giveth life. They don’t even have the Spirit. The HOLY SPIRIT is not within. They’ve read the Word. They’ve memorized them. They try to claim ME as a SAVIOUR but they say, “Get lost as a LORD”! They say, “I don’t want no master over me, this is my life and I’m going to live it the way I want to! Oh but I love you Jesus. Oh but I praise you! John 3:16! See it says it right here all I have to do is just believe. I don’t have to obey! AmightyWind ministry go away! I can sin all I want who are you to say? It’s not about what I do – it’s what Jesus did. No one can be righteous see it says it right here ‘All have sinned and fell short of the righteousness of GOD.’ (Rom. 3:23)”
But I tell you this, the prayers of the righteous availeth much (James 5:16) for you are righteous through ME for you are as a David and when you do sin against ME unknowingly, [and when you realize it] you are quick to repent. You fear not to repent. You know that I tell you to show ME how you love ME, is to obey ME. (John 14:15) I’m telling you this and no one else will preach it so I will speak if forth out of this vessel of clay. I cannot just be a SAVIOUR, I must be your LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. It all goes together as one. This is why this ministry is set-apart. It’s not just sent to the last chancers. It’s not just used a Refiner’s furnace. It’s sent to those who are called to be MY Bride. Even this night you see a Word has come forth. Elisabeth [Elisheva] could not call in her time to you for the word wasn’t there yet. I had to give her a dream. I had to speak forth the words I did this night.
MY beloved daughter you had to receive. You had to lay your flesh down and say “I will do it YAHUSHUA’S way”, and you did and you spoke the words and because of you MY darling daughter this Word came forth. But I knew it would. It was not the time this [past] weekend. It was not the time for this Word to be given birth so I allowed the phones to go down. Otherwise Elisabeth [Elisheva] you were in such desperation. You just wanted to get it over with expecting the worst. When did you hold a thought captive for you to think that the worst would come forth? For the worst didn’t come forth the best came forth! And you bonded together with your daughter in a way through tears and barbed wire was cut and she has the desire for her soul mate because I placed it there because I gave her, her soul mate. There is no other.
Now I shall anoint your lips to speak forth to the other half. Remember MY treasure, MY gem like no others for all of you sparkle to a different degree. All of you, all of you sparkle. Some have to be polished and the way I polish is with tears, tears, tears and pain and travail. For look at a lump of coal how hard it has to be pressed before it turns into a diamond. All of you, all of you, all of you have been so hard pressed but it has not been done in vain. All of this came forth this night because I had 3 that obeyed. Elisabeth [Elisheva] you heard MY voice as you slept. Kathrynyah you were there for Elisabeth [Elisheva] to help increase the anointing, and beloved daughter, I’ll not say your name but you know who you are, you had to receive. You had to open your heart. You had to desire to hear the words I had to say. You had to be prepared. I love you.
I love each of you. Those who make YAHUSHUA’S Demon Stompers, you mean so much to ME! You were named after ME! I’ve given you your own theme song! [I’m Going to the Enemy’s Camp] For you’re going to the enemies’ camp and you’re taking back everything that the devil has stolen and this night daughter you’re taking back everything that the devil has stolen because satan is UNDER YOUR FEET! And the enemies are defeated! Do not go by what your eyes see! You don’t have a clue what I’ve done to the enemies’camp!
You are so special, those who remain in YAHUSHUA’S Demon Stompers and those who are to come. You are so very special that I sent Holy angels to decree the birth of that special branch of ministry and the enemies scoff and mock and they say “No one can be Holy”. They judge you because of who they are because there is no Holiness in them. They desire not Holiness. They desire not to hear MY voice. They cover their ears when they hear it and they call this Prophet all manner of evil names and anyone else who repeats the words that I say.
But not you MY beloved, not the true Bride; you know MY words. You recognize them and I love you and great, great, great, great, great are your rewards in Heaven. All you have to do is overcome. Be overcomers and take every thought captive. And when you hear a thought that you know is not of ME with a voice that is not of ME, take it as if you grasped it by your hands and in the name of YAHUSHUA rebuke it. That lying deceiving spirit! And rebuke satan and see yourself with that thought that has now turned into the demon that sent it and cut its hands off! With MY double edged sword cut it off! And throw it away and cast it away and say, “I’ll have none of your lies satan”! For the plans I have for you are for good and not for evil: all those who can hear MY voice; this goes for the guests also.
Call upon ME. Trust ME! Lean not unto your own understanding but in all your ways acknowledge ME and I will direct your path. Trust ME! Stop doing it your way and do it MY way, your LORD, your SAVIOR, your MASTER, your RULER. I’m not going to lose one! I know everyone whose name is written in the LAMB’S Book of Life before the foundation of this earth and I’ll not lose one name.
So when enemies come and enemies go. Judases come and Judases go. When you do all you can, you’re pounding your head against the wall but you can’t get that person on their knees to me to fall and admit that I am not only supposed to be their SAVIOUR, I AM to be their MASTER – I AM ALMIGHTY GOD, YAHUVEH’S Only Begotten SON and you are to follow MY footsteps, not in your own. If you follow in your own footsteps they’ll lead you straight to hell, that’s why I came to this world to give you footsteps to follow in.
So these are the words I have to say to you, an unexpected gift to MY precious YDS. For you please ME. You please ME. You please ME. You work so hard in this harvest field. The laborers are so few but you do not complain. Elisabeth [Elisheva] will say, “This needs done and that needs done,” and none of you complain. You put your hand to the plough and no matter what’s coming at you, you are overcomers! Only overcomers are YAHUSHUA’S Demon Stompers! Remember that. Those that fail could not measure up.
So I leave you with these words to be a blessing to you. I love you. It won’t be long before I see you. Just hang on tight to the hem of MY garment. Don’t let go! No matter what you see in this world, don’t let go. Just hang on tight. Let not the spirit of religion steal what I have given you. Let not the spirit of doubt or worry or fear or panic steal what I have given you.
No religion will save you! None! None! None! Only a loving and obedient relationship to I, YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH will save your soul!
Thank you daughter. Thank you for stirring up the anointing in this Ringmaiden of MINE! I know Elisabeth [Elisheva] you hesitated even to say those words for those words have been contaminated with the lies of satan but you are MY Ringmaiden and the Words and the Prophecies are ringing around this world. And satan you know this. You cannot stop this for I have decreed this. And more languages shall come forth. MY daughter this night I have anointed you in a new way. I anoint you now with a new heart and the barbed wire has been cut away. Do not let it ever grow again. Do not ever look backward only look forward and as you continue to lay your will down, as you continue to hold captive every thought, captive every desire! See if it is of ME, you will grow more in the anointing of the RUACH HA KODESH and that goes for ALL all who are listening to this word now.

Torah Portion: Pharaoh Remains Prideful Despite Marvels And Wonders
Wherever you go I will keep you safe. Whatever is to happen know that I am with you, and I will keep you safe. Does a Groom allow any harm to come to HIS Bride? You are MY Bride, I am your Groom. Yes, I am coming soon but until you see ME do not think I will not shelter and protect MY Bride. Does not MY Word say though 1,000 fall by your side, though the dead surround you, I will keep you safe (PS 91:7)? Remember when the Israelites and the Egyptians were surrounded by darkness and light? Remember when the Egyptians had plagues and the Israelites had none? They lived side by side did they not? Yet the Israelites were protected. So it was then, so it shall be again.
GREAT HORROR! GREAT HORROR! GREAT HORROR will come to those that have flaunted MY Laws in MY face spit upon MY Torah and defiled the Holy Word and ripped it in shreds.
GREAT HORROR! GREAT HORROR! GREAT HORROR! GREAT HORROR! GREAT HORROR! GREAT HORROR will come upon those that mocked the word of YAHUVEH that has been trashed and labeled garbage.
GREAT HORROR! GREAT HORROR! GREAT HORROR! You say I am a God of mercy and love and when I speak rebuke or in harsh tones through MY Prophets, you say “That is not my loving and merciful Father.” Do I not say, “I chastise those I love? What parent disciplines their child without raising their voice?” FOOLISH, FOOLISH, FOOLISH ones. I will slap you, I will strike you on the right and the left, I will stomp on you. But for the sake of your souls, I will allow satan to kill the flesh, because of MY love and mercy, call upon ME when that time comes, I will save your souls.
GREAT HORROR! GREAT HORROR! GREAT HORROR! GREAT HORROR! GREAT HORROR! GREAT HORROR such as this world has never seen. But listen, I give these words not for MY Bride, Babies, Chosen Ones and Elect to fear. They are not for those who hear MY voice and fear ME.
It is wisdom to fear the Lord. It is wisdom to try to be pure. It is wisdom to keep living Holy and shun unholiness. You take the Word of God and you hold it in the heathen’s face and say, “Thus saith the Lord.” Watch and see, your neighbor’s house will be flattened; plagues, sickness, death, destruction and poverty will come and watch how I cover those who are MINE. I cover those who entered MY Passover. Those who are MINE, who entered into MY Passover, you will Passover the HORROR of MY Judgment to come.”
There is coming great devastation. The earth will shake and quake in fear. Can the sun outshine MY brilliance as I come closer to the earth? The lava will run, it cannot contain the anger of YAHUVEH anymore. Oh but you will see MY angels encamp about those who love ME, you need not fear. Those of you who hear MY voice need not fear when it is time to go you will know. Did I not open the Red Sea? I did it then, so I will do it again. Just as the evil pharaoh and his troops chased MY Children of Israel who just wanted to be free to live Holy and worship ME.
MY Children are the ones I protected. Their enemies were destroyed. I did it then and I will do it again. The Israelites disobeyed and were delayed from entering the Promised Land by MY chastisement. See the destruction come upon the whore of Babylon. Remember Hitler? As I have told MY Prophets, learn from Hitler and you shall see what has been in the past shall be in the future.
Oh, Oh, Oh!!! Rivers of Blood shall flow! You so-called Christians with your mouths full of gold. Its gold sent from hell! Gold sent from hell! Gold sent from hell! You’re FOOLISH, FOOLISH! So satan can take back when he has given you. Did not Hitler pull gold teeth out of the mouths of the Jews? Satan mocks and laughs, as it was then he will do it again. Those who know ME, those who know ME, know this is not of ME. I am commanding you to be humble. Why would I have you show off a mouthful of gold? Is this not pride? I despise the leaders who teach this and lead MY People astray. You will know that you will know that you wicked spiritual leaders will stand before ME one day and hear ME say, “Depart from ME, you workers of iniquity, I never knew you! (Mt 7:23)”
Fall on your faces and REPENT! Get the gold ripped out of your mouths before satan rips it out for just as Hitler did, they shall do it once again. The anti-christ shall call them extermination camps. Before he killed 6 million Jews, now it will be 666 million christians and Jews. Multitudes will be lukewarm in their faith, but before their life is taken, extinguished like a match flame, they will be on fire with the love of YAHUVEH. What they do not have now, they will have then. Wouldn’t it be easier now to sacrifice your mind, body, spirit and soul giving ME your will, doing it MY way or would you really rather wait to endure the HORROR that is to come?
Do I not say in MY Word the “lukewarm” I will spew out of MY mouth (Rev 3:16)? How can you think when reading MY Word that just anyone who labels themselves “Christian” will be caught up with ME in the air (1 Thes 4:17)? The Bride I come for will be prepared, obedient and loyal, loving ME all ways, mind, body, spirit and soul, already dressed without spot or wrinkle. What Bride makes her Groom wait? It is the guests that linger. The Groom does not wait for HIS Bride; the Bride is ready when HE appears. The extermination camps will not be full of MY Bride. None of MY Bride will be found there. But it will be full of guests. I have but one Bride.
When you are rounded up like herded cattle, pressed against one another where you can’t move left or right, while you are still alive, the gold shall be ripped from your mouth. The gold shall be ripped from your mouth. The gold shall be ripped from your mouth and the jewelry from your body. That is what you get for following the false deceptions, great signs and wonders. I sent this prophet to warn you. Satan plays you; you are bait on the hook. Look and weep as spiritual leaders I once trusted dangle MY People like bait on a hook over the jaws of hell. The evil spiritual leaders line their pockets with gold as hell fills the people’s mouths with gold so the evil ones can rip it out like they did to the Jews. What you sow you will reap.
You in Israel, who follow this again, have you not learned not to lust after gold so it can be ripped out of your mouth? Fall on your faces, REPENT today! Flee from the leaders who lead you astray. For those that did not do a Passover Seder, not knowing what to do or not wanting to. Learn now. You need a Passover from MY judgment. I give you another chance, because I am a God of mercy and love. I spoke to this prophet in a dream so you can’t say your God didn’t warn you. I, chastise those that I love. So it was then, so it will be again. It is your choice.
Do you want to be obedient now or suffer MY chastisement or MY rejection later? So it was then, so it will be again.

VA’ERA -And He Appeared
“And I appeared Va’era to Avraham, Yitzchak, and Yaacov as El Shaddai -אל שדי but by My name, YAHUVEH -יהוה, I did not make Myself known to them.” (Exodus 6:2–3)
In last week’s Torah study, YAH appeared to Moses at the foot of Mount Sinai in a burning bush, instructing him to lead the Israelites out of Pharaoh’s bondage. Because Moses perceived himself to be slow of speech, YAH appointed his brother Aaron to be his spokesperson.
When the brothers went before Pharaoh, he refused to let the Israelites go. Instead of making the situation better, the Israelites’ enslavement became more oppressive. Pharaoh required them to gather their own straw whereas previously it had been provided for them and still produce the same quota of bricks.
Of course, the children of Israel complained to Moses, so he brought their suffering before YAH, who reassured him that things would turn around. YAH told him that He would not only save the Israelites with a mighty deliverance, but Pharaoh would drive them from Egypt.
YAH Redeems Israel Past, Present and Future
In this Parasha, YAH promises Moses that He will accomplish four redemptive acts: He would bring out the Israelites from their suffering in Egypt, rescue them from slavery, redeem them from their oppression with His outstretched arm, and take them as His own nation -Aam.
These four promises are called the Four Expressions of Redemption, and they are traditionally commemorated during the Passover Seder ritual meal with four cups of wine.
For each of these acts of deliverance written in Exodus 6:6–7, YAH used the following Hebrew words:
- Hotzeiti -הוֹצֵאתִי, which means I will bring out;
- Hitzalti -הִצַּלְתִּי, which means I will rescue;
- Ga’alti -גָאַלְתִּי, which means I will redeem; and
- Lakachti -לָקַחְתִּי, which means I will take.
YAH also makes a fifth expression of redemption. He promises He will bring heveiti הֵבֵאתִי His people back into their own land.
“And I will bring [heveiti] you to the land I swore with uplifted hand to give to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob. I will give it to you as a possession. I am YAHUVEH.” (Exodus 6:8)
Two thousand years ago, when the Jewish People lived in the Promised Land, this fifth expression may have been commemorated during the Seder with a fifth cup of wine.
Although YAH has been rescuing the Jewish people from their exile and bringing them back into the Land, the fifth cup is considered to represent a complete Redemption through Messiah.
This fifth cup at the Passover Seder, therefore, is called the Cup of Elijah, which is left untouched for the Prophet Elijah, who is expected to return to earth to herald the coming of the Messiah and His Messianic reign.
When YAH speaks a Word, it will be done as He has said, despite how circumstances appear in the natural.
Still, we live in a fallen world. Many of us suffer from spiritual myopia short-sightedness caused by focusing on our own suffering and loss.
The Israelites were no different. They were so downtrodden and grieved in spirit that they simply could not believe what Moses said the LORD would do for them. They couldn’t even listen to his words of hope.
“Moses reported this to the Israelites, but they did not listen to him because of their discouragement and harsh labor.” (Exodus 6:9)
This tendency in human nature should remind us to be patient and merciful as we minister to people.
Even today, there are those whose bondage is so cruel and whose spirit so broken that they also cannot hear those who preach the Good News of YAHUSHUA. Sometimes, they must watch us walk in the power of YAH, seeing signs and wonders before they will listen and believe.
Sometimes, we must faithfully sow seeds, patiently waiting as YAH grows them.
“I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but YAH has been making it grow.” (1 Corinthians 3:6)
As YAH had commanded them, Moses and his brother Aaron returned to Pharaoh over and over again, demanding that he let YAH’s people go so that they may serve Him in the wilderness.
This whole account of YAH’s redemption of Israel from Egypt has a spiritual parallel in our salvation from the kingdom of darkness, ruled by haSatan and the Kingdom of Light, ruled by YAHUVEH.
We are delivered from haSatan through faith in YAHUSHUA, the Passover Lamb, not simply to walk away and “do our own thing.” As it was for the Israelites, the purpose of our freedom is to serve the living GOD.
“For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” (Colossians 1:13–14)
Pharaoh Remains Prideful Despite Marvels and Wonders
YAH gave Moses and Aaron a special sign to show Pharaoh. In Hebrew the sign is called a mofet, which means a marvel or wonder. Aaron was to throw his stick down before Pharaoh, and it would be transformed. In most English translations, we read that the stick became a serpent; but in the Hebrew, the word used is tannin, which means a crocodile.
However, Pharaoh, as YAH foreknew, still refused to let the people go; therefore, YAH sent His judgment on Egypt in the form of the Ten Plagues.
“Pharaoh will not listen to you. Then I will lay My hand on Egypt and bring My hosts, My people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great acts of judgment.” (Exodus 7:4)
These plagues are remembered each year at the Passover Seder during the second cup of wine. One drop is removed from the cup for each of the plagues, while the leader recites the list of judgments in Hebrew.
The idea behind this custom is that our cup which represents joy cannot be full while others are suffering.
First, the waters of the Nile River were turned to blood –dam, making it undrinkable. Then frogs swarmed the land, and then an infestation of lice –kinim tormented man and beast.
Until the plague of lice –kinim, the Egyptian magicians and sorcerers were able to duplicate the plagues but, with this plague, they could not. Therefore, they recognized this to be the finger of YAH.
“Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh: ‘This is the finger of YAH’; and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as YAHUVEH had spoken.” (Exodus 8:19)
Pharaoh had hardened his heart and would not listen to the voice of reason—one of the surest signs of pride. A humble man will receive correction willingly, but a person with pride immediately becomes defensive and will not listen to others. This can bring about his downfall.
“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18)
Note the contrast between Pharaoh and Moses, who even today is considered to be the most humble man to walk the earth. When Yethro, Moses’ father-in-law, corrected him on his approach to settling disputes between the Israelites in the wilderness, Moses listened and took heed.
“So Moses listened to the voice of his father-in-law and did all that he had said.” (Exodus 18:24)
Although Pharaoh promised to let the Jewish People go after the plague of lice, he hardened his heart and reneged on his promise. As a result, YAH sent swarms of flies –arov that covered the land, then a disease –dever that killed all the cattle.
YAH made a distinction between Israel and Egypt. While all the cattle of Egypt died, not even one of Israel’s cattle fell to the disease.
This underlines the importance and reliability of being in a covenantal relationship with the Almighty GOD. None of Egypt’s best sorcerers and masters of the occult could save them from the hand of GOD.
In the sixth plague, when YAH turned dust into painful boils –shechin upon man and beast, even the magicians suffered, and they could not stand before Moses because of them. (Exodus 9:9–11)
This week’s Parasha ends with the seventh plague of hail –barad.
YAH sent thunder, fire and a grievous hail that destroyed anything and everything in the field—man and beast and all vegetation. Only in Goshen where the Israelites lived was there no hail. (Exodus 9:26)
Like Egypt, Like the World
We know from the book of Revelation that many of these plagues will again strike the inhabitants of the earth in the end times. These events that happened in Egypt foreshadow what is to come—possibly on a global scale—in the final days.
In his vision, John describes the seven last plagues on the earth:
“I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of YAHUVEH.” (Revelation 15:1)
As YAH pours out the full bowl of His wrath upon the earth, loathsome sores appear on all those who have taken the mark of the beast and worship his image (Revelation 16:2). Then, just like in Egypt, the waters turn to blood (Revelation 16:3–6). Other plagues also bombard the earth, such as darkness, scorching fire, and destructive hail.
“From the sky huge hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds, fell on people. And they cursed YAH on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.” (Revelation 16:21)
May we be ever mindful that we are living in the end times; and while we remain safe in the security of our holy covenant with Elohim, let us patiently share the Good News and diligently pray for mercy upon those who stubbornly continue to rebel against YAHUVEH, YAHUSHUA AND RUACH HAKODESH.
“You will again have compassion on us; You will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.” (Micah 7:19)
“Hear the word of YAHUVEH , you nations; proclaim it in distant coastlands: ‘He who scattered Israel will gather them and will watch over His flock like a shepherd.'” (Jeremiah 31:10)
