Vayera /And He Appeared
Welcome to Vayera /And He Appeared, this week’s Parasha.
*~ Genesis Chapter 18 ~*
1 And YAHUVEH visually appeared to him by the oaks of Mamre. And he was sitting at the door of the tent in the heat of the day.
2 And he lifted up his eyes and looked; and, behold, three men were standing by him. And he saw, and he ran to meet them from the entrance of the tent. And he bowed to the ground.
3 And he said, YAHUVEH, if now I have found favor in Your sight, I beg You, do not leave from near Your servant.
4 Please allow a little water to be taken and You wash Your feet, and rest under the tree.
5 And I will bring a bite of bread and will sustain Your heart. Then You may pass on, for this is why You have passed over to Your servant. And they said, Do so, as you have said.
6 And Abraham ran into the tent to Sarah and said, Hurry, prepare three measures of fine meal, knead it and make cakes.
7 And Abraham ran to the herd and brought a son of the herd, tender and good, and gave it to a youth. And he hurried to prepare it.
8 And he took curds and milk and the son of the herd which he had prepared, and he set before them. And he stood by them under the tree. And they ate.
9 And they said to him, Where is your wife Sarah? And he said, See, in the tent.
10 And He said, Certainly I will return to you at the time of life; and, Behold! A son shall be to your wife Sarah. And Sarah was listening at the entrance to the tent, and it was behind Him.
11 And Abraham and Sarah were aged, going on in days. The custom as to women had ceased to be to Sarah.
12 And Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After my being old, shall there be pleasure to me; my master also being old?
13 And YAHUVEH said to Abraham, Why has Sarah laughed at this, saying, Indeed, truly shall I bear, even I who am old?
14 Is anything too difficult for YAHUVEH? At the appointed set apart time I will return to you, at the time of life, and there will be a son to Sarah.
15 And Sarah denied, saying, I did not laugh; for she was afraid. And He said, No, but you did laugh.
16 And the men rose up from there and looked on the face of Sodom. And Abraham was going with them, to send them away.
17 And YAHUVEH said, Shall I hide from Abraham that which I am doing?
18 And Abraham shall surely become a great and powerful nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?
19 For I have known him, so that whatever he may command his sons and his house after him, even they may keep the way of YAHUVEH, to do righteousness and justice; to the intent that YAHUVEH may bring on Abraham that which He has spoken of him.
20 And YAHUVEH said, The cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and their sin is exceedingly heavy.
21 I will go down and see if they have at all done according to the cry coming to Me. And if not, I will know.
22 And the men faced around from there and went toward Sodom. And Abraham was still standing before YAHUVEH.
23 And Abraham drew near and said, Is it so? Will You cut off the righteous with the wicked?
24 Perhaps there are fifty righteous within the city; is it so You will cut off and will not spare the place for the sake of the fifty righteous ones that are within it?
25 Far be it from You to act in this way, to put to death the righteous with the wicked. Far be it from You. The Judge of all the earth, shall He not do right?
26 And YAHUVEH said, If I find fifty righteous within the city, in Sodom, then I will spare all the place because of them.
27 And Abraham answered and said, Behold, I pray, I have undertaken to speak to YAHUVEH, and I am dust and ash.
28 Perhaps there will be lacking five from the fifty righteous, will You destroy all the city for the five? And He said, If I find forty five there, I will not destroy.
29 And he continued still to speak to Him and said, Perhaps forty will be found there. And He said, I will not do it because of the forty.
30 And he said, Please YAHUVEH do not be angry, that I may speak; perhaps thirty will be found there. And He said, I will not do it if I find thirty there.
31 And he said, Behold, I pray, I have undertaken to speak to Adonai; perhaps twenty will be found there. And He said, I will not destroy because of the twenty.
32 And he said, I pray, let not YAHUVEH be angry that I may speak only this time; perhaps ten will be found there. And He said, I will not destroy because of the ten.
33 And when YAHUVEH had finished speaking to Abraham, He left. And Abraham returned to his place.
*~ Genesis Chapter 19 ~*
1 And the two cherubs came into Sodom at evening. And Lot was sitting at the gate of Sodom. And Lot saw, and he rose up to meet them and bowed his face to the earth.
2 And he said, Behold, now, my masters, please turn in to your servant’s house and lodge, and wash your feet; and rise early and go to your way. And they said, No, for we will lodge in the street.
3 And he much urged them, and they turned in to him and came into his house. And he made a feast for them. And he baked unleavened matzos, and they ate.
4 Before they had laid down, even the men of the city, the men of Sodom, circled the house; from the young to the aged, all the people from its limits.
5 And they called to Lot and said to him, Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may have sex with them.
6 And Lot went out to them, to the door, and he closed the door behind him.
7 And he said, My brothers, please do not act evilly.
8 Behold, now, I have two daughters who have not known a man; please let me bring them out to you and do to them as you see fit; only do not do a thing to these men, on account of this they came into the shade of my roof.
9 And they said, Stand back! And they said, This one came in to visit, and must he always judge? Now we will do evil to you rather than to them. And they pressed on the man, upon Lot violently, and drew near to break the door.
10 But the men put out their hands and brought Lot in to them, into the house, and shut the door.
11 And they struck the men at the door of the house with blindness, from the small to the great; and they struggled to find the door.
12 And the men said to Lot, Who still is here to you? Bring out of this place your sons and your sons-in-law and your daughters, and whoever belongs to you in the city.
13 For we are about to destroy this place, for the cry of them is great before YAHUVEH, and YAHUVEH has sent us to destroy it.
14 And Lot went out to speak to his sons-in-law, those taking his daughters. And he said, Rise up, go out from this place, for YAHUVEH is about to destroy the city. And he seemed as one joking to his sons-in-law.
15 And when the dawn rose, then the cherubs urged Lot, saying, Rise up, take your wife and your two daughters who are found, lest you be consumed in the perversity of the city.
16 And he lingered. And the men lay hold of his hand and his wife’s hand, and on the hand of his two daughters, YAHUVEH having mercy on him. And they caused him to go out, and they put him down outside the city.
17 And it happened as they led them outside, he said, Escape for your life! Do not look behind you, and do not stay in all the plain. Escape to the mountain, lest you be swept away.
18 And Lot said to them, Please, no, my master!
19 Behold, now, Your servant has found grace in Your sight, and You have magnified Your mercy which You have done to me in saving my life. And I am not able to escape to the mountain lest some evil overtake me and I die.
20 Please, now, this city is near, to flee there, and it is a little one. Please let me escape there! Is it not a little thing, that my soul may live?
21 And He said to him, See, I have lifted up your face also as to this thing, without overthrowing the city for which you have spoken.
22 Hurry, escape there, for I am not able to do anything until you have come there. So the name of the city was called Zoar.
23 The sun had gone forth on the earth, and Lot came into Zoar .
24 And YAHUVEH on earth rained fire and brimstone on Sodom and Gomorrah, from YAHUVEH out of the heavens.
25 And He overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all those living in the cities, and the produce of the ground.
26 And his wife looked back with pleasure from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.
27 And Abraham started up early in the morning, going to the place where he had stood there before YAHUVEH.
28 And he looked toward the face of Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain. And he saw. And, behold, the smoke of the country went up like the smoke of a furnace.
29 And it happened when Elohim destroyed the cities of the plain, Elohim remembered Abraham; and He sent Lot out from the overthrow when overturning the cities in which Lot lived.
30 And Lot went up out of Zoar and lived in the mount. And his two daughters were with him. For he feared to live in Zoar. And he lived in a cave, he and his two daughters.
31 And the first-born said to the younger, Our father is old, and there is no man in the land to come in to us as is the way of all the earth.
32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and let us lie with him, that we may keep alive seed of our father.
33 And they caused their father to drink wine that night. And the first-born went in and lay with her father. And he did not know when she lay down nor when she rose up.
34 And on the next day it happened, the first-born said to the younger, Behold, I lay with my father last night. Let us cause him to drink wine tonight also. And you go in and lie with him, so that we may keep alive seed of our father.
35 And they caused their father to drink wine that night also. And the younger rose up and lay with him. And he did not know when she lay down, nor when she rose up.
36 And both the daughters of Lot were with child by their father.
37 And the first-born bore a son and called his name Moab; he is the father of Moab to this day.
38 And the younger also bore a son and called his name Ben-Ammi; he is the father of the Ammonites to this day.
*~ Genesis Chapter 20 ~*
1 And Abraham pulled up stakes from there to the land of the Negev, and lived between Kadesh and Shur, and stayed in Gerar.
2 And Abraham said with regards to his wife Sarah, She is my sister. And Abimelech the king of Gerar sent and took Sarah.
3 But Elohim came to Abimelech in a dream by night and said to him, Behold, you are about to die because of the woman you have taken, she being married to a husband.
4 And Abimelech had not come near to her. And he said, YAHUVEH, will You slay even a righteous nation?
5 And did he not say to me, She is my sister? And she, even herself said, He is my brother. In the honor of my heart and the purity of my hands I have done this.
6 And Elohim said to him in a dream, Yes, I know that you did this in the honor of your heart, and I also withheld you from sinning against Me. On account of this I did not allow you to touch her.
7 And now return the wife of the man, for he is a prophet, and he will pray for you, and you shall live. And if you do not restore her, know that surely, you shall die, you and all that are yours.
8 And Abimelech rose up early in the morning and called for all his servants. And he spoke all these words in their ears. And the men were greatly afraid.
9 And Abimelech called Abraham and said to him, What have you done to us? And in what have I offended you that you have brought on me and on my kingdom a great sin? You have done things to me that ought not to be done.
10 And Abimelech said to Abraham, What did you see that you have done this thing?
11 And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of Elohim is not in this place, and they will kill me for my wife’s sake.
12 And yet she really is my sister, daughter of my father; only not daughter of my mother. And she became my wife.
13 And it happened when Elohim made me wander from my father’s house, even I said to her, This is your kindness which you do to me: at every place where we come there, say of me, He is my brother.
14 Abimelech took sheep and oxen, and male slaves, and slave-girls, and gave to Abraham. And he returned his wife Sarah to him.
15 Abimelech said, Behold, my land is before you. Live where it pleases you.
16 And he said to Sarah, I, behold, I have given a thousand of silver to your brother. Behold, it is for you a covering of the eyes to all who are with you. And with all this you are reproved.
17 And Abraham prayed to Elohim, and Elohim healed Abimelech and his wife and his concubines, and they gave birth.
18 For YAHUVEH had completely closed up every womb of the house of Abimelech because of Sarah, the wife of Abraham.
*~ Genesis Chapter 21 ~*
1 And YAHUVEH visited Sarah as He had said. And YAHUVEH did to Sarah as He had promised.
2 And Sarah conceived and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the appointed time, that which Elohim had spoken with him.
3 And Abraham called the name of the son who was born to him, whom Sarah had borne to him, Isaac.
4 And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac, a son of eight days, as Elohim had commanded him.
5 And Abraham was a son of a hundred years when his son Isaac was born to him.
6 And Sarah said, Elohim has made laughter for me; all who hear will laugh with me.
7 And she said, Who would have said to Abraham, Will Sarah suckle sons? For I have borne a son to his old age.
8 And the child grew and was weaned. And Abraham made a great feast on the day Isaac was weaned.
9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, mocking.
10 And she said to Abraham, Drive away this slave-girl and her son, for the son of this slave-girl shall not inherit with my son, with Isaac.
11 And the thing was very evil in the eyes of Abraham, on account of his son.
12 And Elohim said to Abraham, Let it not be evil in your eyes because of the boy, and on account of your slave-girl. All that Sarah says to you, listen to her voice, for in Isaac your Seed shall be called.
13 And also I will make a nation of the son of the slave-girl, for he is your seed.
14 And Abraham started up early in the morning and took bread and a skin of water and gave them to Hagar, putting them on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away. And she left and wandered in the wilderness of Beer-Sheva.
15 And the water from the skin was finished, and she put the boy under one of the shrubs.
16 And she went and sat down opposite him, about a bow shot away. For she said, Let me not see the death of the boy. And she sat opposite and raised her voice and wept.
17 And Elohim heard the voice of the young boy. And the Messenger of Elohim called to Hagar out of the heavens. And He said to her, What ails you, Hagar? Do not fear, for Elohim has heard the voice of the boy, there where he is.
18 Rise up, lift up the boy and make your hand strong on him, for I will make of him a great nation.
19 And Elohim opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water. And she went and filled the skin with water, and gave drink to the young boy.
20 And Elohim was with the boy. And he grew up. And he lived in the wilderness and became a great archer.
21 And he lived in the wilderness of Paran. And his mother took a wife for him out of the land of Egypt.
22 And it happened at that time Abimelech and Phicol, the general of his army, spoke to Abraham, saying, Elohim is with you in all that you do.
23 And now swear to me here by Elohim, that you will not lie to me, and to my son, and to my heir, according to the kindness which I have sworn to you. Do to me and to the land in which you have lived in.
24 And Abraham said, I will swear.
25 And Abraham reproved Abimelech on account of a well of water which the slaves of Abimelech had seized.
26 And Abimelech said, I do not know who has done this thing; and also you have not told me; even I have not heard, except today.
27 And Abraham took sheep and oxen and gave to Abimelech, and both of them cut a covenant.
28 And Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves.
29 And Abimelech said to Abraham, What are these seven ewe lambs which you have set by themselves?
30 And he said, You shall take the seven ewe lambs from my hand so that it may become for me a witness that I dug this well.
31 On account of this that place is called Beer Sheva, because the two of them swore there.
32 And they cut a covenant in Beer-Sheva. And Abimelech and Phicol, the general of his army, rose up; and they returned to the land of the Philistines.
33 And Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beer-Sheva, and there he called on the name of YAHUVEH El Olam (Everlasting).
34 And Abraham lived in the land of the Philistines many days.
*~ Genesis Chapter 22 ~*
1 And it happened after these things, The Elohim, testing Abraham said to him, Abraham! And he said, Behold I am here.
2 And He said, Now take your son, Isaac, your only one whom you love, and go into the land of Moriyah. And there offer him for a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I will say to you.
3 And Abraham rose up early in the morning and saddled his donkey, and he took two of his youths with him, and his son Isaac. And he split wood for a burnt offering, and rose up and went to the place which Elohim had said to him.
4 And on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place from a distance.
5 And Abraham said to his young men, You stay here with the donkey . I and the boy will go over there that we may worship and may return to you.
6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Isaac, his son; and he took the fire and the knife in his hand. And the two went together.
7 And Isaac spoke to his father Abraham and said, My father. And he said, Behold I am here. And he said, see, the fire and the wood! But where is the lamb for a burnt offering?
8 And Abraham said, My son, Elohim will see for Himself, the lamb for a burnt offering. And the two of them went together.
9 And they came to the place which Elohim had said to him. And Abraham built there the altar, and arranged the wood. And he bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on the wood.
10 And Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.
11 And the Messenger of YAHUVEH called to him from the heavens and said, Abraham! Abraham! And he said, I am here.
12 And He said, Do not lay your hand on the boy, nor do anything to him. For now I know that you fear Elohim and you have not withheld your son, your only one, from Me.
13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked. And behold! A ram behind him was entangled in a thicket by its horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it for a burnt offering instead of his son.
14 And Abraham called the name of that place YAHUVEH Yireh ; so that it is said until this day, In the mount of YAHUVEH it will be seen.
15 And the Messenger of YAHUVEH called to Abraham out of the heavens a second time.
16 And He said, I have sworn by Myself, declares YAHUVEH, that on account of this thing you have done, and have not withheld your son, your only son,
17 that blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens, and as the sand which is on the lip of the sea. And your Seed shall possess the gate of His enemies.
18 And in your Seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because you have listened to My voice.
19 And Abraham returned to his young men, and they rose up and went together to Beer-Sheva. And Abraham lived at Beer-Sheva.
20 And it happened after these things it was told to Abraham, saying, Behold! Milcah, she also has borne sons to your brother Nahor:
21 Uz, his first-born, Buz, and his brother Kemuel, the father of Aram,
22 and Chesed, and Hazo, and Pildash, and Jidlaph, and Bethuel.
23 And Bethuel fathered Rebekah. Milcah bore these eight to Nahor, the brother of Abraham.
24 And his concubine, whose name was Reumah, she also bore Tebah, and Gaham, and Thahash, and Maachah.
2 Kings 4:1–37
*~ 2 Kings Chapter 4 ~*
1 And a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets had cried to Elisha, saying, My husband, your servant, is dead. And you know that your servant has seen YAHUVEH. And the lender has come to take my two children to himself for slaves.
2 And Elisha said to her, What shall I do for you? Tell me. What do you have in the house? And she said, Your handmaid has nothing in the house except a pot of oil.
3 And he said, Go, beg vessels for yourself from outside, from your neighbors, empty vessels. Do not let them be few.
4 And you shall go in and shut the door on you, and on your sons, and shall pour out into all these vessels. And you shall set aside the full ones.
5 And she left him, and shut the door on her and on her sons. They carried to her, and she poured out.
6 And it happened when the vessels were full, she said to her son, Bring another vessel to me. And he said to her, There is no other vessel; and the oil stopped.
7 And she came and told the man of Elohim. And he said, Go, sell the oil, and repay your loan. And you and your sons shall live from the rest.
8 And the day came that Elisha crossed over to Shunem. And a great woman was there. And she lay hold on him to eat bread. And it happened, as often as he passed by, he turned aside there to eat bread.
9 And she said to her husband, Behold now, I know that he is a holy man of Elohim who passes by us continually.
10 Now let us make a little walled roof room, and let us set a bed for him there, and a table, and a chair, and a lampstand. And it shall be, when he comes to us, he shall turn in there.
11 And the day came when he came in there and turned into the roof room, and lay there.
12 And he said to his young man Gehazi, Call this Shunammite. And he called her, and she stood before him.
13 And he said to him, Now say to her, Behold, you have trembled with all this care for us. What shall I do for you? Shall I speak to the king for you, or to the army commander? And she said, I live among my people.
14 And he said, What then shall I do for her? And Gehazi said, Truly there is no son to her. And her husband is old.
15 And he said, Call for her. And he called for her. And she stood at the door.
16 And he said, At this season, according to the time of life you shall embrace a son. And she said, No, my master, O man of Elohim, do not lie to your handmaid.
17 And the woman conceived and bore a son, at this season, according to the time of life that Elisha spoke of to her.
18 And the boy grew, and the day came that he went out to his father, to the reapers.
19 And he said to his father, My head! My head! And he said to the young man, Carry him to his mother.
20 And he carried him, and brought him to his mother. And he sat on her knees until noon, and died.
21 And she went up and laid him on the bed of the man of Elohim, and shut the door on him, and went out.
22 And she called to her husband, and said, Please send to me one of the young men, and one of the donkeys, and I shall run to the man of Elohim, and return.
23 And he said, Why are you going to him today; it is neither new moon nor Sabbath? And she said, Peace.
24 And she saddled the donkey and said to her young man, Lead on, and go. Do not hold back riding for me except I speak to you.
25 And she went, and came to the man of Elohim, to Mount Carmel. And it happened, when the man of Elohim saw her from afar, he said to his young man Gehazi, Behold, The Shunam-mite!
26 Now please run to meet her, and say to her, Is it well with you? Is it well with your husband? Is it well with the boy? And she said, Well.
27 And she came to the mountain to the man of Elohim, and lay hold on his feet. And Gehazi came near to thrust her away. But the man of Elohim said, Let her alone, for her soul is bitter in her, and YAHUVEH has hidden it from me, and has not told me.
28 And she said, Did I ask a son from my master? Did I not say, Do not deceive me?
29 And he said to Gehazi, Gird up your loins and take my staff in your hand, and go. When you meet a man, you shall not greet him. And when a man shall greet you, you shall not answer him. And you shall lay my staff on the face of the boy.
30 And the mother of the boy said, As YAHUVEH lives, and your soul lives, I will not leave you. And he rose up and went after her.
31 And Gehazi passed on before them, and laid the staff on the face of the boy. But there was no voice, and there was no hearing. And he turned back to meet him, and told him, saying, The boy has not awakened.
32 And Elisha came into the house. And, behold, the boy was dead, laid out on his bed.
33 And he went in and shut the door on both of them, and prayed to YAHUVEH.
34 And he went up and lay down on the boy, and put his mouth on his mouth, and his eyes on his eyes, and his hands on his hands, and stretched himself on him. And the flesh of the boy became warm.
35 And he returned, and walked in the house, once here and once there. And he went up and stretched himself on him. And the boy sneezed seven times, and the boy opened his eyes.
36 And he called Gehazi and said, Call this Shunammite. And he called her, and she came in to him. And he said, Take up your son.
37 And she went in and fell at his feet, and bowed to the earth, and took up her son, and went out.
26 And in the sixth month, the cherub Gabriel was sent from the presence of Elohim to Galilee to the city whose name is Nazareth,
27 to a virgin who had been betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David and the virgin’s name was Mariam.
28 And entering, the cherub said to her, Peace to you full of grace! Our Adonai is with you. You are blessed among women!
29 And seeing this, she was disturbed at his word, and considered what kind of greeting this might be.
30 And the cherub said to her, Do not fear, Mariam, for you have found grace from YAHUVEH.
31 For behold you will receive conception and bear a son and you will call His name YAHUSHUA.
32 This One will be great and will be called Son of the Most High. And YAHUVEH Elohim will give Him the throne of His father David.
33 And He will reign over the house of Jacob to the ages, and of His kingdom there will be no end.
34 But Mariam said to the cherub, How will this be since I do not know a man?
35 And the cherub answered and said to her, The Holy Spirit will come and the power of the Highest will rest upon you. Because of this, He who is to be born of you is holy and will be called the Son of YAHUVEH.
36 And behold, your kinswoman Elizabeth! She also conceived a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month to her who was called barren;
37 for nothing shall be impossible with YAHUVEH.
38 Mariam said, Behold I am the handmaid of YAHUVEH. Let it be to me according to your word! And the cherub departed from her presence.
36 And as they were telling these things, YAHUSHUA Himself stood in their midst, and said to them, Peace to you!
37 But being terrified, and being filled with fear, they thought they saw a ghost.
38 And He said to them, Why are you troubled? And why do doubts come up in your hearts.
39 See My hands and My feet, that I am He? Feel Me and see, because a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see Me having.
40 And saying this, He showed them His hands and feet.
41 But yet they not believing from the joy, and marveling, He said to them, Have you any food here?
42 And they handed a broiled part of a fish to Him, and from a honeycomb.
43 And taking these before them, He ate.
44 And He said to them, These are the Words which I spoke to you yet being with you, that all the things must be fulfilled having been written in the Torah of Moses, and the Prophets, and the Psalms, concerning Me.
45 Then He opened up their mind to understand the Scriptures,
46 and said to them, So it is written, and so the Messiah must suffer, and to rise from the dead on the third day.
47 And repentance and remission of sins must be preached on His name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
48 And you are witnesses of these things.
49 And, behold, I send forth the promise of My Father on you. But you sit in the city of Jerusalem until you are clothed with power from on high.
50 He led them out as far as to Bethany. And lifting up His hands, He blessed them.
51 And it happened that while He blessed them, He was separated from them and ascended into Heaven.
52 And worshiping Him, they returned to Jerusalem with great joy,
53 and were continually in the sanctuary, praising and blessing YAHUVEH. Amen.
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: Abraham Delighted In Offering Hospitality
Prophecy 24 Prophecy 24 Part 1 Beware, The Ark Door And Book Of The Gentiles Is Closing!
The prophets and apostles’ job is neither easy nor popular. MY Prophets get frustrated trying to get people to listen knowing these words are not their words. They give their own finances to preach forth the prophetic messages as I always have a remnant that will hear MY voice and obey. I always have a remnant that will desire to hear what the prophets are speaking. Yet, how I grieve how few are willing to labor with MY Prophets by their sides, sharing their burdens. Does not MY Word say, “Believe a prophet and so shall ye prosper,” I now say unto you, “Reward a prophet and you shall receive the same rewards as they do in the Kingdom of Heaven and on earth.” When paper currency becomes worthless paper and has no value any longer, I will remember if you helped MY Prophets or let them go in need.
Remember the Widow of Zarephath, if you doubt this. Did I not already know who would be willing to share Elijah of Old’s burdens? Did I raise up a woman of wealth to sustain Elijah? Nay, I raised up someone that was in need such as he. They both were hungry were they not? They both had no physical wealth did they not and yet I chose the little Widow of Zarephath for I knew her heart. She was not selfish and though she was concerned, it was her and her son’s last meal and then she would die and her son. Yet she trusted the prophet and believed this prophet and so she did not go in lack anymore. She put the needs of the prophet before her own needs. Remember how I multiplied her cruz of oil and it did not run dry. Remember how I multiplied her meal barrel so it was not empty.
Remember how I asked her to use her faith to give the last of what she had. Remember this MY Children, she had to borrow pots and jars from neighbors and when they asked her what she was going to put in it she had to say her God was going to fill the empty vessels. As I did for her so I will do again. Only believe! Faith without works is dead. I will do this for those who believe I will provide for them also as I did the widow of Zarephath for those who bless MY Prophets. You will want ME to bless you when your paper money and cards are worthless. I will remember now whether you tithed and gave alms when I told you to share. Does not MY Word say, “Store up your treasure in Heaven where thieves cannot steal nor rust corrupt.” Store up your blessings the way you would store up your treasures. Where your heart is, what you put your trust in, is your God.
I tell you this; anyone that helped Noah was spared. But who labored with Noah? Only his family! So too it shall be again. Only MY true children will desire to help the prophets to speak forth and not muzzle the prophet or tie the oxen feet as they pull the plow. Pray for the prophets especially the handmaiden speaking this forth. Satan seeks to silence MY voice on this earth for the prophets always warn before I send MY wrath or before satan attacks. It is MY Prophets I share MY secrets with. Never do I send MY wrath and judgment until I send the prophets to speak and warn to REPENT! Satan especially hates the prophets. The office of the prophet is not easy. No one is a prophet unless they are familiar with suffering. They have suffered for the anointing to prophesy.
So now I say, “Bless MY Prophets and I will bless you. Protect MY Prophets and I will protect you. Labor with MY Prophets and great shall be your blessings especially when you’re in need. Offer to hide MY Prophets and I will hide you. Share with MY Prophets and I promise you will never starve or go homeless.” The time is here when it is dangerous to call oneself a prophet. It is getting more dangerous as YAHUSHUA approaches to come for HIS Bride. I shouldn’t have to tell you to what I have spoken, you should know this already. Shame on you for not doing what you know I have spoken to your Spirit to do. Many times I have said, “Help them,” and yet you have refused. How can you say you love ME when you don’t obey ME? Get into the Ark of MY Son YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH.
Prophecy 58 AMERICA, REPENT OR PERISH! BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!
I, YAHUVEH, sent Elijah of Old to the widow of Zarephath for I, YAHUVEH, knew ahead of time that the little widow woman was making her last meal for her son and then she and her son would have died, if I had not sent Elijah to multiply her cruse of oil and meal in the barrel. She had to obey and recognize the anointing in the Prophet of Old Elijah and she did. Elijah had the anointing to call water from Heaven to fill the stream that went dry, but I, YAHUVEH, did not allow it, instead I sent Elijah of Old to test the widow of Zarephath (1 Kings 17:8-24). Although the scriptures say there were many widows, Elijah of Old was sent to that one particular woman (Luke 4:25). I am using her like an Elijah of Old. I, YAHUVEH, instructed her to write and speak her needs, and how few have passed the tests. Millionaires have come here and scoffed now they won’t have the millions much longer, for I am telling you use the paper and plastic cards while you can to help this Elijah of New [in Hebrew, Eliyahu], not for her sake but for your sake.
I, YAHUVEH, am only speaking this to those that recognize MY voice through these prophetic words written here and recognize the RUACH ha KODESH wildfire anointing that is upon her. I, YAHUVEH, want to bless the people but they have denied MY blessings and this handmaiden I have anointed to speak forth MY blessings as the Elijah of Old. When your paper money is worthless and the credit cards are worthless, and the stocks and bonds and CDs are worthless, and you are facing poverty, starvation, homelessness, sickness, you will remember when you were asked to be a blessing like the widow of Zarephath who sustained MY Elijah of Old. You would have been blessed and protected like the Widow of Zarephath and chose to turn a deaf ear to YAHUVEH’s warnings to bless this handmaiden MY Elijah of New [in Hebrew, Eliyahu] .
I am YAHUVEH and I anointed Elijah of Old as I have anointed MY handmaiden who I call MY Elijah of New [in Hebrew, Eliyahu] . You will be held responsible whether you are a blessing or a curse to her. I am anointing her to speak forth prophetic messages that few would dare to speak in fear of ridicule, but those who dare to mock, and deny this is “I AM” speaking know this, you have stuck a finger in I, YAHUVEH’s eye.
Torah Portion: Mo’adim – YAHUVEH’s Appointed Times and Promises Fulfilled
Prophecy 117 I, YAHUVEH Say Judgment Is Set!
Remember the man you called the “educated fool?”
(www.amightywind.com/hell/soulbattle.htm) You put his letter before the world as he mocked all that is Holy. You wrote him and told him as he persecuted you, that he would not be alive next year at the same time. What you prophesied came to pass and he died before that time. I sent you to warn him. He was sent to the Ministry and he called it a curse, taught his young son there is no need to fear GOD because GOD does not exist. You warned him, he did not listen, and now he wishes he did! The educated fool who bragged to you of his college degrees, now is in hell and has found out what you said was true and he cries loudly, “YAHUVEH I now believe in YOU!”
I could go into detail but it would serve no purpose. Only know this, like dominoes your enemies and the enemies of all YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH’S Bride will fall as a Goliath never to rise again.
Prophecy 103 I, YAHUVEH, Judge You by Your Fruit!
I speak to MY First Fruits. I speak to those that are the 144,000. I grade by the percentage, not “if” you obey ME, but how quickly you obey ME. Not “if” you obey ME, but by what attitude you have that you obey ME; how quickly you obey ME and the degree of the performance, how fully you obey ME.
Do you do things in your time? Or do you do things in MY time? I judge you by the percentage of the time you obey ME, again how quickly you obey ME. Do you give ME your best? Or do you just get by? Oh how sad when some of you just throw crumbs at ME. You see I, YAHUVEH, judge your heart.
Some have stolen, those that I told Elisabeth [Elisheva] she could trust have betrayed, for at the time I speak it they can be trusted. But I never said for how long. But those within her household I have said can be fully trusted. You know your names. There are those in YAHUSHUA’S Demon Stompers, the Holy Prayer Warrior Intercessors, they stand in the Front Lines, they can be counted on to fast and to pray, to live Holy unto ME, they can be trusted at this time.
VAYERA /And He Appeared
“ELOHIM appeared to Abraham near the great trees of Mamre while he was sitting at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day.”
Last week, in Parasha Lech Lecha (Go Forth!), ELOHIM commanded Abraham to leave his native land and go to the Land He promised.
Parasha Vayera opens with ELOHIM appearing to Abraham as he sat in his tent door in the heat of the day.
Jewish sages believe that this visit from ELOHIM occurred while Abraham convalesced after his circumcision at 99 years old.
Abraham delighted in offering hospitality to these strangers. Even though he didn’t know who they were, he gave them his best!
The Word of GOD promises that as we give, so shall it be given unto us in good measure.
When we bless others, we plant seeds of blessing that will return into our own lives.
“A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” (Proverbs 11:25)
Hospitality seems to be a lost art in some cultures, especially in the West
where the pace of life doesn’t easily lend itself to making time for all that is involved in caring for people in our homes.
In Israel, people may drop over at any time, and you need to be prepared to offer them hospitality. It is a cultural expectation in this society.
Even the Brit Chadashah /New Testament encourages us to show hospitality to strangers: “Be hospitable to one another without grumbling.” (1 Peter 4:9)
We might even entertain angels unawares!
The Book of Hebrews exhorts us to “let brotherly love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it. (Hebrews 13:1–2)
And, in fact, the three men that Abraham entertained were messengers.
Although the word used in Hebrew is anashim (men), it is clear from the context that two are angels and one is the LORD.
Mo’adim – YAHUVEH’s Appointed Times and Promises Fulfilled
“Is anything too hard for YAHUVEH? I will return to you at the appointed time (mo’ed) next year and Sarah shall have a son.” (Genesis 18:14)
After sharing a meal together with Abraham, the angel made an outrageous promise to both him and Sarah: next year, at the appointed time (mo’ed), they would have a son.
The word mo’ed (or mo’adim in the plural form) is used to describe the appointed festival and remembrance times in Leviticus 23. In English, these times are loosely translated as feasts of YAHUVEH, but this is a poor translation, since one is actually a fast.
The mo’adim are special times that YAHUVEH has chosen or appointed for a specific purpose. In this case, that purpose is the fulfillment of YAHUVEH’s promise to give Abraham and Sarah a son.
Sarah’s initial reaction to this promise was to laugh to herself because she was well beyond childbearing age.
To this GOD responded, “Is anything too hard for ELOHIM?”
There may be promises that we have received from YAHUVEH that perhaps seem impossible; however, we should be encouraged by the words of YAHUSHUA who reminded us, “Everything is possible for him who believes.” (Mark 9:23)
In the Brit Chadashah (New Testament), we see another important mo’ed or set time.
An angel came to a young, Jewish woman named Miryam (Mary) to tell her that she would conceive without having known a man intimately, by the power of the RUACH HA KODESH .
Furthermore, her Son would be called YAHUSHUA /Salvation, and HE would reign eternally over the house of Jacob/Israel from the throne of HIS father David.
While this may seem outside the realm of possibility, the angel told Miryam that “nothing will be impossible with ELOHIM.” (Luke 1:37)
The same GOD who parted the Red Sea can truly make a way where there is no way, if we will only believe. But it must happen in HIS way and HIS time, not our way on our schedule. Our job is to wait in hope, faith, and expectation until the set time (mo’ed) arrives.
And we can also look forward to yet another set time (mo’ed) when YAHUVEH — who allowed a temporary blindness to come upon HIS Jewish People so that the fullness of the Gentiles may come in — will remove that blindness. Then all Israel will be saved.
How we long for that day!
Further on in this Torah portion, we read that Sarah does give birth to a son with Abraham as the father who is now 100 years old at the set time (mo’ed) of which YAHUVEH had spoken (Genesis 21:1–3).
Abraham named him Isaac, which means laughter, for Sarah said,
“ELOHIM has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me. … Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? Yet I have borne him a son in his old age.” (Genesis 21:6–7)
Let us not nullify the promises of YAHUVEH in our own lives through unbelief but be fully convinced that YAHUVEH will bring forth HIS promises, even those that seem not only unlikely but absurd, in HIS appointed time.
“HE did not waver at the promise of YAHUVEH through unbelief; but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to YAHUVEH, and being fully convinced that what HE had promised HE was also able to perform.” (Romans 4:20–21)
