Vayishlach -And HE Sent
Welcome to Vayishlach -And HE Sent, this week’s Parasha .
Genesis 32:4 (v. 3 in Hebrew Bibles)–36:43
4 And he commanded them, saying, You shall say to my master, to Esau: Your servant Jacob says this: I have sojourned with Laban and remained until now.
5 And it is mine to have oxen, and donkeys, flocks, and slaves and slave-girls. And I have sent to tell my master, to find favor in your eyes.
6 And the messengers came back to Jacob, saying, We came to your brother Esau, and also he is coming to meet you, and four hundred men are with him.
7 And Jacob was afraid, and he was very distressed. And he divided the people with him, and the flocks, and the herds, and the camels, into two camps.
8 And he said, If Esau comes to the one company and strikes it, then it will be, the company that is left shall escape.
9 And Jacob said, Oh ELOHIM of my father Abraham and ELOHIM of my father Isaac, YAHUVEH, who said to me, Go back to your land and to your kindred and I will deal well with you.
10 I am not worthy of all the mercies and all the truth which You have done for Your servant, for I passed over this Jordan with my staff, and now I have become two companies.
11 Deliver me, I pray, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau; for I fear him, lest he come and strike me, mother to sons.
12 And You said, dealing I will deal well with you, and I will make your seed like the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.
13 And he remained there that night. And he took a present from what came into his hand, for his brother Esau:
14 two hundred she-goats, twenty he-goats, two hundred rams,
15 thirty nursing camels with their thirty colts, forty cows and ten bulls, twenty she-donkeys and ten young donkeys .
16 And he gave into the hand of his slaves every drove by itself. And he said to his slaves, Pass over before my face and put a space between drove and drove.
17 And he commanded the first ones, saying, When my brother Esau meets you and asks, saying, Whose are you, and where do you go, and whose are these before your face?
18 Then you will say, Your servant Jacob’s. It is a present sent to my master, to Esau; and, behold, also he is behind us.
19 And he also commanded the second, also the third, even all the ones going after the droves, saying, You shall speak this word to Esau when you find him.
20 And you shall also say, Behold, your servant Jacob is behind us. For he said, I will cover his face by the present, the one going before my face, and afterward I will see his face; perhaps he will lift up my face.
21 And the present passed before his face, and he remained in the camp that night.
22 And he rose up that night and took his two wives, and his two slave-girls, and his eleven children. And he passed over the ford Jabbok.
23 And he took them and sent them over the stream, and sent over that which was his.
24 And Jacob was left alone. And a Man wrestled with him until the rising of the dawn.
25 And He saw that He had not prevailed against him. And He touched on his hip socket, and Jacob’s hip socket was unhinged as he wrestled with Him.
26 And He said, Send Me away, for the dawn has ascended. And he said, I will not let You go unless You bless me.
27 And He said to him, What is your name? And he said, Jacob.
28 And He said, Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with ELOHIM and with men, and have prevailed.
29 And Jacob asked and said, Please reveal Your name. And He said, Why is it that you ask about My name? And He blessed him there.
30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peni’El , because I saw ELOHIM face to face, and my life is delivered.
31 And the sun rose on him as he passed over Peniel, and he was limping on his thigh.
32 On account of this the sons of Israel do not eat the sinew of the thigh that is on the hip socket until this day, because He struck on Jacob’s hip socket, on the sinew of the thigh.
*~Genisis Chapter 33 ~*
1 And Jacob lifted up his eyes and looked. And, behold, Esau was coming, and four hundred men with him. And he divided the children to Leah, and to Rachel, and to the two slave-girls.
2 And he put the slave-girls and their children first; and Leah and her children behind: and Rachel and Joseph last.
3 And he passed over in front of them and bowed himself to the ground seven times until he came even to his brother.
4 And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck and kissed him. And they wept.
5 And he lifted up his eyes and saw the women and the children. And he said, Who are these with you? And he said, The children with whom ELOHIM has favored your servant.
6 And the slave-girls came near, they and their children; and they bowed.
7 And Leah and her children also came near and bowed. And afterward Rachel and Joseph came near and bowed.
8 And he said, Whose is all this camp which I met? And he said, To find favor in the eyes of my master.
9 And Esau said, I have much, my brother. Let what you have be to yourself.
10 And Jacob said, No, please, if I now have found favor in your eyes, take my present from my hands. For I have seen your face, like seeing the face of ELOHIM; and you are pleased with me.
11 Please take my blessing which has been brought to you, because ELOHIM has favored me, and because I have all things. And he urged him; and he accepted.
12 And he said, Let us depart and go, and I will go with you.
13 And he said to him, My master knows that the children are tender, and the flocks and the herds with me are suckling. And if they overdrive them one day, all the flocks will die.
14 Please let my master go before the face of his servant, and I will move on by stages at my ease, according to the feet of the livestock which are before me, and according to the pace of the boys, until I come into my master to Seir.
15 And Esau said, Please let me place with you some of the people who are with me. And he said, Why, then? Let me find favor in the eyes of my master.
16 And Esau returned on his way toward Seir that day.
17 And Jacob traveled to Succoth. And he built himself a house, and made booths for his livestock. For this reason he called the name of the place Succoth.
18 And Jacob came in peace to the city of Shechem, which is in the land of Canaan, as he came from Padan-Aram. And he camped in front of the city.
19 And he bought that part of the field where he had pitched his tent, from the hand of the sons of Hamor, the father of Shechem, for a hundred pieces of money.
20 And he set up an altar there. And he called it, El, the Elohe of Israel.
*~Genisis Chapter 34 ~*
1 And Dinah, the daughter of Leah, whom she bore to Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land.
2 And Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, the prince of the land, saw her, and took her, and lay with her, and humbled her.
3 And his soul clung to Dinah, the daughter of Jacob. And he loved the girl, and spoke to the heart of the girl.
4 And Shechem spoke to his father Hamor, saying, Take this girl for me for a wife.
5 And Jacob heard that he had defiled his daughter Dinah. And his sons were with his livestock in the field. And Jacob kept silent until they had come.
6 And Hamor the father of Shechem went out to Jacob to speak with him.
7 And the sons of Jacob came out of the field when they heard, and the men were furious, and they were very angry, because he had done folly in Israel, to lie with the daughter of Jacob, and it should not be done in this way.
8 And Hamor spoke with them, saying, My son Shechem’s soul has longed to your daughter. Please give her to him for a wife.
9 And you intermarry with us; give your daughters to us, and take our daughters for yourselves.
10 And live with us, and the land is before you; live and trade in it, and get property in it.
11 And Shechem said to her father, and to her brothers, Let me find favor in your eyes, and what you say to me I will give.
12 Heap on me ever so much bride-price and gift, and I will give as you say to me; but give me the girl for a wife.
13 And the sons of Jacob answered Shechem and his father Hamor, speaking with deceit because he had defiled their sister Dinah.
14 And they said to them, We are not able to do this thing, to give our sister to a man who is uncircumcised. For it is a reproach to us.
15 Only on this condition will we consent to you; If you will become like us, to have every male of yours circumcised.
16 Then we will give our daughters to you, and we will take your daughters to us; and we will live with you and will become a united (echad) people.
17 And if you do not listen to us, to be circumcised, then we will take our daughter, and we will go.
18 And their words were good in the eyes of Hamor and the son of Hamor, Shechem.
19 And the young man did not hesitate to do the thing, for he delighted in Jacob’s daughter. And he was more honorable than all the house of his father.
20 And Hamor and his son Shechem came to the gate of their city. And they spoke with the men of their city, saying,
21 These men are peaceable with us; and, Let them live in the land and trade in it. And, behold, the land is wide on both hands before them. Let us take their daughters for ourselves for wives, and let us give our daughters to them.
22 Only in this way will the men consent to us to live with us, to become a united people: that every male of us be circumcised as they are circumcised.
23 Shall not their livestock, and their property, and all their beasts of burden be ours? Only let us consent to them, and let them live with us.
24 And all those going out of the gate of the city listened to Hamor, and to his son Shechem. And every male was circumcised, all those going out of the gate of the city.
25 And it happened on the third day, they being pained, that the two sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah’s brothers, each took his sword. And they came on the city in its security, and killed every male.
26 And they killed Hamor and his son Shechem by the edge of the sword. And they took Dinah from the house of Shechem, and went out.
27 The sons of Jacob came on the slain and looted the city, because they had defiled their sister.
28 They took their flocks and their herds and their donkeys, and whatever was in the city, and whatever was in the field.
29 And they took all their wealth, and all their little ones, and their wives, and looted all that was in the house.
30 And Jacob said to Simeon and to Levi, You have troubled me, to make me stink among those living in the land, among the Canaanites, and among the Perizzites. And I being few in number, and they gathering against me, they will strike me, and I and my house shall be wasted.
31 And they said, Should he treat our sister like a harlot?
*~Genisis Chapter 35 ~*
1 And ELOHIM said to Jacob, Rise up, go to Bethel and live there. And make an altar there to El, who appeared to you when you fled before your brother Esau.
2 And Jacob said to his house, and to all those with him, Put away the strange ELOHIM in your midst, and purify yourselves, and change your clothing.
3 And let us rise up and go up to Bethel. And I will make an altar there to El, who answered me in the day of my distress. And He was with me in the way in which I went.
4 And they gave all the strange ELOHIM in their hand to Jacob, and the earrings which were in their ears. And Jacob hid them under the oak which was near Shechem.
5 And they pulled up, and there was the terror of ELOHIM on the cities all around them, and they did not pursue the sons of Jacob.
6 And Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan; it is Bethel, he and all the people with him came.
7 And he built an altar there and called the place El Bethel; because there the ELOHIM revealed Themselves to him when he fled from the face of his brother.
8 And Deborah died, the nurse of Rebekah, and she was buried below Bethel, under the oak. And he called its name, Oak of Weeping.
9 And ELOHIM appeared to Jacob again when he came out of Padan-Aram, and He blessed him.
10 And ELOHIM said to him, Your name is Jacob; your name will not anymore be called Jacob, but Israel will be your name. And He called his name Israel.
11 And ELOHIM said to him, I am El Shaddai ; be fruitful and multiply. A nation and a company of nations shall be from you. And kings shall go forth from your loins.
12 And the land which I gave to Abraham and to Isaac, I will give it to you; and after you I will give the land to your seed.
13 And ELOHIM went up from him, in the place where He had spoken with him.
14 And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where He had spoken with him, a pillar of stone. And he poured out a drink offering on it; and he poured oil on it.
15 And Jacob called the name of the place, there where ELOHIM had spoken with him, Bethel.
16 And they pulled up stakes from Bethel. And there was yet a length of land to come to Ephrath. And Rachel bore; and she had hard labor in her bearing.
17 And it happened, when she had hard labor in her bearing, even the midwife said to her, Do not fear, for this also is a son for you.
18 And it happened, when her soul was going forth (for she died) even she called his name Ben-Oni (son of my sorrow). But his father called him Ben-Yamin (son of my strength).
19 And Rachel died and was buried on the way to Ephrath, that is Bethlehem.
20 And Jacob set up a pillar on her grave; it is the pillar of Rachel’s grave until today.
21 And Israel pulled up and pitched his tent beyond the Tower of the Flocks.
22 And it happened after Israel lived in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah, his father’s concubine. And Israel heard. And the sons of Jacob were twelve.
23 The sons of Leah: Reuben, Jacob’s first-born; and Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun.
24 The sons of Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin.
25 And the sons of Bilhah, Rachel’s slave-girl: Dan and Naphtali.
26 And the sons of Zilpah, Leah’s slave-girl: Gad and Asher. These were Jacob’s sons who were born in Padan-Aram.
27 And Jacob came to his father Isaac, to Mamre, to the City of Harba; it is Hebron where Abraham and Isaac resided.
28 And the days of Isaac were a hundred and eighty years.
29 And Isaac gave up the breathe and died and was gathered to his people, old and satisfied of days. And his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.
*~Genisis Chapter 36 ~*

6 And Esau took his wives, and his sons, and his daughters, and all the souls of his house, and his livestock, and all the beasts of burden, and all his property which he had gained in Canaan, and he went to a land away from his brother Jacob.
7 For their possessions had become too great for them to dwell together. And the land was not able to bear their travels, in the presence of their livestock.

*~Obadiah Chapter 1 ~*
1 The vision of Obadiah: So says Adonai YAHUVEH concerning Edom: We have heard a message from YAHUVEH, and a messenger is sent among the nations; rise up, and let us rise up against her for battle.
2 Behold, I have given you to be small among the nations; you are greatly despised.
3 The pride of your heart has deceived you, dwelling in the clefts of the rock; his dwelling is lofty, saying in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground?
4 Though you rise high as the eagle, and though you set your nest between the stars, I will bring you down from there, declares YAHUVEH.
5 If thieves came to you, if destroyers by night, how you have been cut off! Would they not have stolen until they had enough? If the grape-gatherers came to you, would they not leave gleanings?
6 How Esau is searched out! His hidden things are sought out!
7 All the men of your covenant have dismissed you to the border. The men who were at peace with you have deceived you and have prevailed over you. They are setting your bread as a snare under you; there is no understanding in him.
8 Shall I not in that day even destroy the wise out of Edom and understanding out of the mount of Esau? declares YAHUVEH.
9 And your mighty ones, Teman, shall be afraid, so that each man from the mountain of Esau may be cut off by slaughter.
10 Shame shall cover you from the violence against your brother Jacob, and you shall be cut off forever.
11 On the day of your standing on the other side, on the day that the strangers took his force captive, and foreigners entered his gates, and cast lots for Jerusalem, even you were like one of them.
12 But you should not have looked on the day of your brother, on the day of his alienation; nor should you have rejoiced over the sons of Judah in the day of their destruction; nor should you have enlarged your mouth in the day of distress.
13 You should not have entered into My people’s gate on the day of his calamity; also you should not have looked on his evil on the day of his calamity, nor should you have sent out against his force in the day of his calamity.
14 Nor should you have stood on the crossways to cut off those of him who escaped, nor should you have shut up his survivors in the day of distress.
15 For the day of YAHUVEH is near on all the nations: As you have done, it shall be done to you; your reward shall return on your head!
16 For as you have drunk on My holy mountain, so all the nations shall continually drink. Yea, they shall drink and shall swallow; and they will be as if they had not been.
17 But the ones who escaped shall be on Mount Zion, and it shall be holy. And the house of Jacob shall possess their own possessions.
18 And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for straw. And they shall burn among them and consume them. And no survivor shall be to the house of Esau, for YAHUVEH has spoken.
19 And those of Negev shall possess the mountain of Esau, and the low country of the Philistines. And they shall possess Ephraim’s fields, and Samaria’s fields. And Benjamin shall possess Gilead.
20 And the exiles of this force shall go to the sons of Israel who shall possess the land of the Canaanites to Zarephath; even the exiles of Jerusalem who are in Sepharad shall possess the cities of the Negev.
21 And deliverers shall go up into the mountain of Zion to judge the mountain of Esau, and the kingdom shall be to YAHUVEH.
*~Ephesians Chapter 4 ~*
1 Then I, the prisoner of our Master, exhort you to walk worthily of the calling in which you were called,
2 with all humility and meekness, with long-suffering, bearing with one another in love,
3 being eager to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
4 There is one body and one Spirit, even as you also were called in one hope of your calling;
5 one YAHUVEH (family), one faith, one baptism,
6 one ELOHIM and Father of all, the One above all and through all and in you all.
7 But to each one of us was given grace according to the measure of the gift of Messiah.
8 Because of this, He says, “Having ascended on high, He led captivity captive,” and gave gifts to men.”
9 But that He went up, what is it except that He also first came down into the lower parts of the earth?
10 He that came down is the same who also went up above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.
11 And indeed He has assigned some to be apostles; and some prophets; and some evangelists; and some shepherds and teachers;
12 for the perfecting of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the building up of the body of Messiah,
13 until we all may come to the unity of the faith and of the full knowledge of the Son of ELOHIM, to a full-grown man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Messiah,
14 so that we may no longer be children, being blown and carried about by every wind of false doctrine of men, who through their craftiness are very skillful in deceiving the people;
15 but speaking the truth in love, we may grow up into Him in all things, who is the Head, the Messiah,
16 it is through Him that the whole body is closely framed together and united at all joints, according to the gift that is imparted by measure to each member, for the guidance and control of the body; in order to complete the edifying of the body in love.
17 Therefore, I say this, and testify in the Master, that you no longer walk even as also the rest of the nations walk, in the vanity of their mind,
18 having been darkened by their intellect, being alienated from the life of ELOHIM because they have no knowledge, which is because of the hardness of their heart,
19 who, having cast off all feeling, surrendered themselves up to lust, and to the practice of all uncleanness with a desire for more and more.
20 But that is not what you have been taught in Messiah,
21 if indeed you heard Him and were taught in Him, as the truth is in YAHUSHUA.
22 Lay aside all your former practices and put off the old man, having been degenerated with deceitful lusts,
23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind,
24 and to put on the new man, who is created by YAHUVEH in righteousness and true holiness.
25 Therefore, put away from you lying, and speak the truth each with his neighbor; for we are members one of another.
26 “Be angry but do not sin;” do not let the sun go down on your anger,
27 and do not give the Devil a chance.
28 The one stealing, let him steal no more, but rather let him labor, working what is good with the hands, that he may have something to give to the one who has need.
29 Let not any evil word go out from your mouth, but words that are good and useful for edification that it may impart a blessing to those who hear them.
30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of YAHUVEH, by whom you were sealed to the day of redemption.
31 Let all bitterness, and anger, and wrath, and tumult, and evil speaking be put away from you, along with all malice.
32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as YAHUVEH has forgiven us through Messiah.
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: Jacob’s Family Becomes a Nation
Prophecy 37 Bless And Pray For The Peace Of Jerusalem
Oh beloved nation I call Israel. HIS Holy Blood was shed not only for this world but first it was shed for Israel. His Blood that was spilled cries out in the soil now and speaks “I did this for you, will you forever reject ME? Will you forever curse MY Name? When will you see I am your only sacrifice that will appease the anger of MY Father once again?”
When will you see I allowed you to do this to ME and you are not to blame?” Oh for that coming day when you shall call ME your beloved and reverence MY HOLY Name! I warn you this; no longer will lambs or animal sacrifices appease MY Father’s anger or MINE only by accepting ME, YAHUVEH’s Beloved Son. I laid down MY life willingly on Jerusalem’s soil for you to be saved. Only by acknowledging that I, YAHUSHUA, sit at the right hand of YAHUVEH as KING of KINGS and LORD of LORDS, will you be saved.
Only by calling upon MY Name YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH during the coming Tribulation will you be saved. Only by loving, obeying, and looking for ME can you be called MY Bride as I catch you up to be by MY side. I am the only deliverer of this world, the only redeemer, there is no other. So I speak not only to Jerusalem, but to this world, get ready for what is to come you will not survive if you don’t call upon the Name of YAHUSHUA! Loving just MY Father YAHUVEH is not enough! He sacrificed ME not only for MY Jewish people, but for people of all kindred’s and tongues he gave HIS only Son to this nation so you would have a covering for your sins, all have sinned and all have fallen short of YAHUVEH’s Glory!
I and MY Father alone are Holy and perfect. Because of the fall of Adam and Eve no human created is without need of a Savior and of MY Blood sacrifice! Jerusalem is so blessed for it was on this soil the only pure Holy, healing resurrecting, delivering, Blood of YAHUSHUA was poured forth on this ground in Jerusalem. Why do you think satan hates this land so much? Why do you think this land is fighting for survival since it was birthed? Why do you think it is war torn and every nation on the face of this earth wants to control it?
Why do you think MY Father has blessed it in ways he has blessed no other nation? MY Blood was poured forth and now will bring forth secret treasures in this world untold! The evil ones will bite and gnash their teeth as they try to the riches control. They will argue amongst themselves who will bring Israel to her knees and the riches and spoils they will war to seize. But MY Father speaks forth and says to the enemies you will not continue to divide and conqueror a nation and a people I have called, preordained as MINE!
You will NOT succeed in stealing from a people I call preordained as MINE. They pay a price just for carrying the name of Jew and I shall protect this nation called Israel in ways no one has ever dreamed possible. I shall protect anyone with a love for Jerusalem! Although they deny MY Son YAHUSHUA, now there is coming a time when the name of YAHUSHUA will again be revered. This is now why the evil tries to pass laws that will forbid the name even to be spoken under penalty of prison, torture and death. Satan now controls the government of this nation and nations around this world. You are to submit to the governments only as much as they submit to YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA. For the government is upon the shoulders of YAHUSHUA HE alone paid the price! MY People are to obey the God they serve and not Man. Pray the corrupt governments will be defeated and the Holy ones will arise taking back what was stolen.
The land Israel has been dividing are like MY garments, gambled and sold to the highest bidder. But I, YAHUSHUA, will give back to Israel what has been stolen and her enemies shall flee in seven different directions! Oh woe to you who lift your hand to the apple of MY eye although in this nation the Name of YAHUSHUA is now despised, I shall turn them back to their first love, and then they will realize through their suffering they and YAHUSHUA are My Beloved and My Beloved is MINE!
Israel shall lack the water for they lack the Living Water to which I will send others, to bring that Living Water and to all that drink, their thirst will be quenched not only in the spiritual but in the physical. All those that refuse MY Son YAHUSHUA, their tongues will hang out like a parched man in the desert. As YAHUSHUA thirsted, so shall those who reject his gift at Calvary. How many will go forth like the woman at the well? How many will be willing to offer the nation of Israel MY Living Water? For they thirst and know not what they thirst for? They are called a Holy Land, yet only a small remnant is Holy before ME.
I shall send forth this handmaiden I prophesy through now with the cup of MY Living Water. She shall be anointed with others who go before her in ways this world has yet seen, as she feeds the hungry and offers the living water to those who thirst after righteousness. Will you be one to help her?
Prophecy 48 Yisrael, Your Enemies Seek To Make You A Scapegoat!
I, HaShem Adonai, and YAHUSHUA have a special love for Yisrael like no other land for MY Beloved Son YAHUSHUA, poured HIS Blood out on that soil. No where else in the world was MY Son’s physical Blood poured forth, only in Jerusalem. No other planet needs a Savior but earth, where satan was cast down from Heaven when he rebelled. My son YAHUSHUA was declared King of the Jews even words nailed atop of that cross. What was spoken and written in mockery was really MY Prophecy foretold thousands of years ago before the birth of YAHUSHUA on earth. Even before the sin of Adam and Eve, I knew what would happen before it happened. “I AM” is the Elohim of all knowledge and “I AM” is the Elohim of time. “I AM” truly is Father Time. In MY eyes there is no beginning or end.
After the fall of Adam and Eve, mankind needed a redeemer, for all I could see was your sins ever before ME. I destroyed the world with a flood because of sin. But not all perished, for Noah and his family had favor with ME, so I used them to repopulate the earth. Blood was spilled at the first murder from Adam and Eve’s seed, Cain slew Abel. It took a Blood Sacrifice to wash away the blood on Cain’s hands. Adam and Eve’s son was killed and their other son was the murderer. Satan had again deceived the seed of Adam and Eve because of the original sin of rebellion when Adam and Eve ate from the tree they were forbidden to eat from. Animal blood sacrifices were just a shadow of what was to come in MY timing. A more perfect unblemished sacrificial lamb that I love and who loves you, MY own Son YAHUSHUA. How quickly you forget how many miracles “I AM” did through this Prophet that was Prophesied in all your Holy Scriptures. It was not the majority that shouted “Crucify him”. It was a plan well orchestrated by the religious and political systems.
Yisrael and MY Children around the world beware, for now the enemies seek and the enemies will use those who worship YAHUVEH in truth as a scapegoat and blame you for atrocities you have not done. Blame you for murders that were done by those that seek to set you up. Your greatest enemies look like you, talk like you, and yet have sold you out just like Judas sold ME out for 30 pieces of silver. Remember Judas, was also a Jew that looked like you. Satan seeks to find out what your price is to sell out the Elohim you serve. What is your price? The price of a soul is priceless as is the Kingdom of Heaven.
You have enemies that war against you and yet you don’t even realize even the war coming against you is a Political Ploy to divert your attention from the real enemies that seek to destroy you and your faith in the Elohim you serve. This enemy seeks to destroy the country you live in, although they live in the same country, the same nations, Hell will be their next abode.
Famines not of MY making, droughts not of MY making, all created by man to destroy man to play Elohim! Diseased animals that are not of the Creator’s making, but rather man created, not Elohim created, all for the same reason as Judas, for the sake of greed. People are dying worldwide and healthy animals being destroyed and no one even questions why? It is so the enemies can control your food supply and the cost of it. Starvation in lands that have never known famine, and drought and yet will know famine and drought before the end of this year you shall hear of atrocities done and Elohim they say will be the blame! Yet Elohim has not done anything to curse MY beloved children only bless them.
Satan and his servants lie to you and make you think HaShem ADONI is deaf to your prayers, and tormented cries. But that is a lie for your Father Elohim weeps with you, and will vindicate you and take vengeance on the enemies and deliver all those that dare to believe he is the same Elohim that delivered in times of old. Beware, for now is the time that was foretold when good is spoken of as evil, and evil is spoken of as good. How many will stand up and decree they stand for Holiness. The scriptures state what Holiness is, let not man set those standards.
I grieve over what must happen to Yisrael before you repent for rejecting the one and only MESSIAH! For I am YAHUSHUA, there is no other MESSIAH, that has paid the price I have. There is another false messiah, beware for he is the son of perdition and will come shortly to deceive you and put you into a greater bondage than the evil pharaoh, or Herod. Even Hitler will not be able to compare with the evil antichrist that is to come and that of the false prophet. He comes to you Yisrael to deceive you first. I, YAHUSHUA, was born in Bethlehem and was tortured, for others’ sins. No man killed ME. I willingly laid down MY life for you and died for all who sin and I arose from death, not in a foreign land but again in Jerusalem on MY Sabbath.
I ascended to Heaven from Jerusalem and I will come again to Jerusalem. I, YAHUSHUA, will not plant MY feet atop any mountains other than Mount Olives. I, YAHUSHUA, will rule and reign from Jerusalem defeating the evil ones, on the soil of Yisrael. Yisrael, oh Yisrael do you not understand how much love HaShem Adonai and I, YAHUSHUA, have for you? We are even raising up apostles and prophets around the world to remind you of how much WE love you. How long will you try our patience? How much blood must flow before you turn back to Holiness and forsake the prince of darkness? We are all knowing and already know what it will take, and so it must come to pass. For we know how long will it take before you get back and forsake the modern day way of worship merely with your lips praying, reciting words with your mouth and not with your heart, or Spirit.
Torah Portion: Jacob Makes Peace With Esau
Prophecy 80 Bride of YAHUSHUA, Pray That I, YAHUVEH, Send Your Enemies to the Winepress of MY Wrath!
Bride of YAHUSHUA, this year of 2006 you are to pray for the peace of Jerusalem in a way you have not done before. Realize as you pray for the peace of Jerusalem, you are praying for the Prince of Peace who is MY Son YAHUSHUA to hasten HIS return and rule this earth as King of Kings, removing all that is unholy from this earth for a set and appointed time. Bride of YAHUSHUA, realize as I, YAHUVEH, command you to do this, realize that YAHUSHUA cannot return and rule and reign until Yisrael suffers greatly. Much lamentation, weeping, travailing, and blood will pour forth and only I, YAHUVEH foreknew what it would take to get Yisrael to again walk in obedience to MY Torah Laws I gave them through Moses, and to love I, YAHUVEH, where they no longer are afraid to speak forth MY Sacred Name where there is anointed Power.
Yisrael will not see the Prince of Peace come again to their nation until this is done. Satan will send a false peace for a short time to deceive them but then it will be as though Hell broke forth around this world when that short time is over.
Yisrael, you will return to your Creator and love and obey ME once again. Yisrael, remember King David of old and remember what he did to win the battles that he won. He humbled himself before I, YAHUVEH, and Praise and Worship is what brought the victories to the Yisraelites of old. Bride of YAHUSHUA, you must pray that Yisrael again desires Holy rulers that love and obey I, YAHUVEH. When Yisrael again loves and obeys I, YAHUVEH, as Abraham, Isaac and Jacob did, then I will return what has been stolen from Yisrael, then I shall redeem Yisrael from the hands of the enemies. Yisrael is a cup of trembling terror to the entire world, for it is where the end time battle will be fought, good against evil. Satan will send his son to rule the world from this one nation because satan mocks ME and counterfeits all I, YAHUVEH, do.
Yisrael will not ever know true peace until she says, “Blessed is HE who comes in the Name of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH.” I send the Bride of YAHUSHUA now to intercede and pray for Yisrael and for one another and I, YAHUVEH, speak forth a dowry through this handmaiden of a new anointing given to you by YAHUSHUA to HIS Bride if they can believe in faith.
Bride of YAHUSHUA, now you must believe in faith what this word speaks forth, but shortly you will no longer have to even have faith to speak it forth, you will know that you know, for as Elijah of old saw his enemies consumed before his eyes, so too shall you see the same. You shall walk over the ashes of the enemies of holiness and not look back.
I, YAHUVEH, have decreed war on planet earth where unholiness abounds. I, YAHUVEH give this new authority now. When prayed to ME in MY Son YAHUSHUA’s Name come boldly before ME and ask that Yisrael’s enemies be thrown into the wine press of MY Wrath. The time is coming oh so shortly, so I warn the Bride of YAHUSHUA and the Guests to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb now through this Ringmaiden of YAHUSHUA. Satan will send his false peace, first to mock the true Prince of Peace, trying to deceive and Mark the world with his Mark. Satan has even set a day of the week for this Mark to be given. Those with ears to hear and listen, Beware of the man-made Sabbath. I have sent MY Prophets to warn the time would come when all must choose which God they will serve. There is coming very shortly a son of perdition that will kill more than your worse dictators. This son of perdition will come in a form you think not.
As the Bride of YAHUSHUA, who is MY Esther, prays for the peace of Jerusalem, realize as you do this it is hastening everything that has been preordained. The coming of the son of satan, who is called the son of perdition, you are also hastening the Great Tribulation, as you hasten the coming of YAHUSHUA to rule and reign from Yisrael and sit in the Holy Temple. When you say, “Come YAHUSHUA, come quickly,” realize the new anointing as you speak these words forth in anointed prayer.
Vayishlach -And HE Sent
“And Jacob sent [vayishlach וַיִּשְׁלַח] messengers ahead of him to his brother Esau in the land of Seir, the country of Edom.”
(Genesis 32:4 [Hebrew Bibles: v. 3])
In last week’s Torah portion, Jacob left his unjust father-in-law, Laban, while he was off shearing his sheep. Fearing that Laban would keep his daughters, Leah and Rachel, Jacob stole away with all he had: his sons, his two wives, and all of his livestock, heading for the mountains of Gilead.
After 22 years in Haran, it was likely difficult for Jacob to free himself from Laban’s wicked manipulation and control, but he did succeed. We can imagine that he was anticipating with great joy his return to his ancestral homeland of Canaan; however, in order to do so, he had to first pass through Edom, the territory of Esau, his estranged brother.
Jacob’s Family Becomes a Nation
“Then the messengers returned to Jacob, saying, ‘We came to your brother Esau, and he also is coming to meet you, and four hundred men are with him.’ So Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed.”
The time had come for Jacob to confront his past. More than two decades had passed since Jacob had posed as his brother Esau and received the first-born blessing from their father.
The last time Jacob had seen Esau, he was filled with murderous rage, vowing to kill him; therefore, it is no wonder that Jacob felt anxiety at the prospect of seeing Esau again, especially upon learning that his brother was headed his way with 400 men!
Had Esau held a grudge against Jacob all these years? Or had time eased the pain of betrayal and brought forgiveness? Could the generous gifts of livestock sent ahead to Esau somehow appease his anger? Jacob was about to find out.
Jacob was a man of strategy: he divided his family and the people with him, along with his flock, herds and camels, into two camps. That way, if Esau attacked one camp, the other would survive. (Genesis 32:8)
The Torah does not call these two camps Jacob’s “family.” This is the first time that the Scriptures refer to those who are with Jacob as a nation / people group ha’am הָעָם.
“Jacob divided the people ha’am, הָעָם who were with him into two groups.” (Genesis 32:7)
This is why the Jewish People, even today, are called the house of Jacob.
Jacob Becomes Israel
That night, after separating everyone and everything into two camps, Jacob stays behind. While alone, he encounters an angel with whom he wrestles until daybreak, insisting, “I will not let you go until you bless me.” (Genesis 32:26)
Jacob refuses to settle for anything less than a full physical and spiritual inheritance, and his tenacity is commendable; even the angel takes note of it.
But the angel’s response is puzzling at first. The angel asks Jacob, “‘What is your name?’ He said, ‘Jacob (Yaacov יַעֲקֹב).’” (Genesis 32:27)
Why did the angel ask about Jacob’s name? In Hebrew, his name (Yaacov) can mean the heel of the foot (because he grasped Esau’s heel when coming out of the womb), but it can also carry a connotation of deceiver or supplanted.
The “angel” knew that for Jacob to embark on his divine destiny, he first needed to face the truth about himself. By stating his name, Jacob announced his character.
The angel then changed his name to Israel (Yisrael יִשְׂרָאֵל) because he had struggled (sarah שָׂרָה)with YAHUVEH and with men, and had overcome. (Genesis 32:28)
The name of Israel comes from two Hebrew words: strive (sar שר) and GOD (El אל). Since the word saralso means prince, there is a connotation of princely power. In this sense, Israel can also mean Prince with YAHUVEH.
A lesson is in this for everyone. To become the overcomers we are called to be and to experience full victory in our lives, there are times when we must be tenacious in our faith and times when we must prevail in prayer.
The Torah identifies Jacob’s mysterious wrestling partner only as an eesh /man; nevertheless, it becomes obvious that he was much more than just a man. Jacob recognized this and, therefore, called the place Peniel /פְּנִיאֵל, which means Face of YAHUVEH, because He had seen YAHUVEH face to face /panim el panim.
The prophet Hosea also saw that Jacob wrestled with YAHUVEH:
“In the womb he took his brother by the heel, and in his manhood he strove with YAHUVEH. He strove with the angel and prevailed.”
This intense encounter left Jacob with a permanent limp from a dislocated hip.
“And the sun rose upon him as he passed over Peniel, and he limped upon his thigh.” (Genesis 32:31)
Jacob Makes Peace With Esau
On his way to meet Esau, Jacob prepared for the worst to happen.
Positioning his family behind him, Jacob “went on ahead and bowed down to the ground seven times as he approached his brother.
“But Esau ran to meet Jacob and embraced him; he threw his arms around his neck and kissed him. And they wept.” (Genesis 33:3–4)
While there is obvious merit in being prepared for the worst, the Bible teaches us that worrying about the future is pointless, since much of what we waste time worrying about never comes to pass.
It’s not that we should deliberately fail to recognize the pitfalls before us and go ahead blindly.
The point is that we can put all of our cares and concerns into YAHUVEH’s hands, trusting HIM to take care of us in any and all situations, even those that could cause us to be fearful or distressed.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to YAHUVEH.”
Like Jacob, some of us have relationships that have been strained—perhaps family members are angry over some past offense.
We may even have committed a great wrong toward someone close to us. In time and with YAHUVEH’s leading, even these estranged relationships can be healed.
Each of us has been given the ministry of reconciliation and should do whatever we can to bring healing and restoration to our relationships with one another, especially our brothers and sisters in the Body of YAHUSHUA the Messiah.
“Now all things are of YAHUVEH, who has reconciled us to HIMSELF through YAHUSHUA the Messiah, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.” (2 Corinthians 5:18)
Although Esau eventually reconciled with his brother, his descendants — the Edomites — continued to harbor hatred against Jacob’s descendants. It is an ancient hatred, the spirit of which continues to this very day.
In the Haftarah (prophetic portion) for this week, in the book of Obadiah, YAHUVEH warns that because of their violence against the children of Jacob (Israel), there will be no survivors of the house of Esau, and they will be cut off forever.
“Because of the violence done to your brother Jacob, shame shall cover you, and you shall be cut off forever . . . and there shall be no survivor for the house of Esau, for YAHUVEH has spoken.” (Obadiah 1:10, 18)
Jacob’s Daughter Is Defiled
This week’s Scripture portion records the rape of Dinah, Jacob’s only daughter. When Dinah goes out to see the women in the town of Shechem, the son of Hamor the Hivite (also named Shechem) takes her by force and lays with her; afterward, he wishes to marry her.
Interestingly, the Hebrew meaning of the name Hamor is donkey, a herd animal renowned for its strength, intelligence, keen sense of curiosity, and stubbornness, which arises from an instinct for self-preservation. Shechem turns to his father Hamor for help in securing Dinah’s hand in a marriage covenant.
The Hebrew in this passage of Scripture may hint that Dinah is responsible for her actions, though not her misfortune. In Hebrew, a male youth is called a na’ar נער and a female youth is a na’arah נערה.
In describing Dinah’s adventure to see the daughters of the land, the Torah calls her a na’ar and not a na’arah. True, it is only the difference of one letter, but this letter is the letter hey (ה), which can be used as an abbreviation for the name of YAH, and it is the suffix that generally makes words feminine in Hebrew, which is a gender-based language.
“His heart was drawn to Dinah daughter of Jacob; he loved the young woman han-na-‘ă-rā, הַֽנַּעֲרָ֔ and spoke tenderly to her.”
If someone is not aware of how precise and exacting Torah scribes are, one might think this a simple typo — a technical error. However, because Torah scholars are hyper-precise as they transcribe each Torah scroll, we can conclude that the removal of the letter hey was not a mistake, but rather a deliberate act.
It perhaps suggests that Dinah’s solo jaunt into the city was made without awareness of her vulnerability.
She may have felt safe in the land, as well, since her family lived in the area in peace, having bought the land they dwelled on from the sons of Hamor.
We do not know the exact circumstances. Yet, it seems that Dinah went out with the confidence of a young man, not conscious of the dangers of entering the city alone as a young woman.
Even today, women need to recognize their vulnerabilities and walk in wisdom, not putting themselves in situations where purity or sanctity of mind, soul, and/or body could be endangered.
Of course, parents, both spiritual and legal, have a responsibility to teach, warn, and advise their children about these realities before they put themselves in danger.
Whatever her reasoning was, Dinah bears some responsibility for venturing out alone, while Shechem carries the full responsibility for his criminal and violent act toward a defenseless woman.
Jacob’s Sons Plot Revenge
Jacob’s sons, Dinah’s brothers, were outraged at the defilement and dishonoring of their sister. But Hamor spoke with Jacob, asking that through a marriage of their son and daughter, their two people groups could come into covenantal relationship.
The sons of Jacob dealt treacherously with Hamor, telling him that they would agree to his proposal on the condition that all the males be circumcised, since this was the sign of the covenant.
Hamor and Shechem, in good faith, agreed, and all the males were circumcised. On the third day, when they were immobilized with pain, Simeon and Levi killed every man as vengeance for Shechem defiling their sister. They even took all the spoil — their flocks, riches, wives, and little ones.
Simeon and Levi took revenge for a terrible crime committed against their sister, even though the entire city tried to make amends.
Rage can cause people to do terrible things. A bad temper is a character weakness that needs to be overcome if we are ever to be the people of YAHUVEH HE desires us to be.
The word of YAHUVEH tells us that the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of GOD, and that anger rests in the bosom of fools.
It is natural to feel anger at times, but we must not allow anger to control us. The enemy wants to use our anger against us to cause much destruction.
In the way of YAHUSHUA, we are not to return evil for evil, but to overcome evil with good. Yes, we may become angry over injustice and the wrongs that people do against us or others, especially our loved ones, but this does not justify our sinning by committing ugly acts of vengeance.
“Be angry and sin not.” (Ephesians 4:26)
Rage Is Cursed
Did Simeon and Levi act righteously? Not in their father’s eyes.
Although Jacob did not deny that his daughter should have been avenged in some way, to his dying day he did not forgive them for acting in rage. Rather than blessing them on his deathbed, he cursed their anger and cruelty.
“Simeon and Levi are brothers; instruments of cruelty are in their dwelling place. Let not my soul enter their council . . . cursed be their anger, for it is fierce; and their wrath, for it is cruel! I will divide them in Jacob and scatter them in Israel.” (Genesis 49:5–7)
And by the time they entered the Promised Land, the tribe of Simeon was the smallest and weakest(see the second census of Moses Numbers 26:14), and they were left out of Moses’ final blessing before he died (Deuteronomy 33).
In addition, their small inheritance lies within the larger inheritance of the tribe of Judah — so they were somewhat scattered among Judah (Joshua 19:1–9).
The tribe of Levi is the only tribe of the twelve who did not receive an inheritance of land; yet, through their obedience to YAHUVEH in later generations (Exodus 32) and by HIS grace, they did receive the privilege and responsibility of the priestly duties in Israel, to this day.
The word of YAHUVEH has so much to say about anger. YAHUVEH Himself is called gracious and slow to anger (Psalm 103:8), and HE asks us to imitate HIM in this.
“He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.” (Proverbs 16:32)
Each of Us Struggle
This Parasha concludes on a sad note, as Rachel dies giving birth to her second son, whose name is changed by his father from Ben–oni son of my sorrow to Ben-yamin son at my right hand.
Jacob returns to his father, Isaac, who lives to an old age of 180, but Jacob never sees his mother again, since she died while he was away in Haran.
Jacob’s life shows us that we may go through many trials and difficulties, but through tenacity and prayer, we can overcome.
YAHUSHUA told us that in this life we will have many troubles, but we can be of good cheer for HE has overcome the world
To this very day, the descendants of Jacob (Israel) still struggle with this Divine Man who is YAHUSHUA Ha MASHIACH the Messiah.
Please pray that they will come to know the Messiah and to a knowledge of the truth, encountering HIM in a personal way, and receiving their full inheritance of eternal life through faith by grace.
“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)
Shabbat Shalom from AMIGHTYWIND!
