Yehovah Will See / Yehovah Ra’ah

Yehovah will see” is the synopsis of the entire story of Genesis 22; Isaac being taken by Abraham in order to make him an olah or “burnt offering,” a sweet aroma to Yehovah. Abraham is being tested. Will his love for Isaac supersede his love for THE Elohim and creator of all things? Yehovah will see!

Yehovah Will See!

I always saw Isaac in my mind as a young child who was ignorant as to the plans that Yehovah and his father had for him.

The book of Yasher, once again, corrects some of the false images that we have been taught concerning this story.

Yehovah Will See Isaac

Listen to a short conversation between Ishmael (51) and Isaac (37) in Yasher 22.

Yasher 22:41 And when Isaac was thirty-seven years old, Ishmael his brother was going about with him in the tent.
42 And Ishmael boasted of himself to Isaac, saying, I was thirteen years old when Yehovah spoke to my father to circumcise us, and I did according to the word of Yehovah which he spoke to my father, and I gave my soul unto Yehovah , and I did not transgress his word which he commanded my father.
43 And Isaac answered Ishmael, saying, Why dost thou boast to me about this, about a little bit of thy flesh which thou didst take from thy body, concerning which Yehovah commanded thee?
44 As Yehovah lives, the Elohim of my father Abraham, if Yehovah should say unto my father, Take now thy son Isaac and bring him up as an offering before me, I would not refrain but I would joyfully accede to it.
45 And Yehovah heard the word that Isaac spoke to Ishmael, and it seemed good in the sight of Yehovah, and he thought to try Abraham in this matter.

Yehovah Will See Abraham

Yasher chapter 22 ends with a conversation between Yehovah and Satan. Here is the last part of that discussion.

Yasher 22:50 Hast thou [Yehovah] seen Abraham the son of Terah, who at first had no sons, and he served thee and erected altars to thee wherever he came, and he brought up offerings upon them, and he proclaimed thy name continually to all the earth’s seed.
51 And now that his son Isaac is born to him, he has forsaken thee, he has made a great feast for all the inhabitants of the land, and Yehovah he has forgotten.
52 For amidst all that he has done he brought thee no offering; neither olah [“burnt offering”] nor shelamim [“peace offering”], neither ox, lamb nor goat of all that he killed on the day that his son was weaned.
53 Even from the time of his son’s birth till now, being thirty-seven years, he built no altar before thee, nor brought any offering to thee, for he saw that thou didst give what he requested before thee, and he therefore forsook thee.
54 And Yehovah said to Satan, Hast thou thus considered my servant Abraham? For there is none like him upon earth, a complete and an upright man before me, one that fears Elohim and avoids evil. As I live, were I to say unto him, Bring up Isaac thy son before me, he would not withhold him from me, much more if I told him to bring up a olah [burnt offering] before me from his flock or herds.
55 And Satan answered Yehovah and said, Speak now unto Abraham as thou hast said, and Yehovah will see whether he will not this day transgress and cast aside thy words.

Yehovah Will See, And He Did See!

This is a beautiful story and there is so much to understand for those who have eyes that see.  Yehovah spoke to Abraham in a vision; He did not even give all of His instructions until Abraham had acted on what he had already been told. Yehovah told Abraham to bring his promised son as a olah in the place that He would show him? Where was that place? Did Isaac understand what was going on? What day was it that Isaac was to die? Who were the men left waiting at the bottom of the hill that Abraham and Isaac ascended? How does what happened in chapter 22 (Isaac – an olah) relate to chapter 23 (Sarah dies in Hebron)? Does this story relate to Passover, the second birth and the “Time of Life? Inquiring minds want to know the answers to these questions and more.

Yehovah Ra’ah – Yehovah Will See!

Yehovah ra’ah is translated in by most as “The LORD will provide” and that translation comforts those who want to continue in the doctrines and traditions of men. BUT, Yehovah ra’ah is really “Yehovah will see.” Yehovah will see you and Yehovah will see me. The question is, “Will Yehovah see us acting according to his created purpose, or not?

Abram Taught Men To Follow Yehovah

Abram taught menWe finished Genesis 12 and Yasher 13 this week in our Sabbath class; and as we have seen all along, it is the Yasher (upright) men of Yehovah who taught ‘ha·a·dam’ seed (men), just like Abram taught men to know and follow only Yehovah. A man of Elohim teaches women, if they teach them at all, to follow only their man.

Abram is only mentioned once in Torah before he leaves Haran for Canaan, for what seems to be the 1st time. Here is the fist time he is mentioned, at the end of Genesis 11.

And Terah took his son Abram and his grandson Lot, the son of Haran, and his daughter-in-law Sarai, his son Abram’s woman, and they went out with them from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to the land of Canaan; and they came to Haran and dwelt there. (Gen 11:31)

In my mind, before I read Yasher,  I saw 3 men and 1 woman (Torah does not even mention Nahor and his woman Milcah) leaving Ur with Terah.

The second time Abram is mentioned is when he leaves Haran for Canaan with Sarai and Lot and the people whom they had acquired in Haran. They? Who is they? And why does it not say “he”? Is it possible that Lot “went with” Abram, but he really did not “follow” Abram at that time?

So Abram departed as Yehovah had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. Then Abram took Sarai his woman and Lot his brother’s son, and all their possessions that they had gathered, and the people whom they had acquired in Haran, and they departed to go to the land of Canaan. So they came to the land of Canaan. (Gen 12:4-5)

It is just 3 years later (Abram is 78) that Lot (and his family) were taken captive by the 4 kings (Nimrod/Amraphel was one of them) who came out of the north with 800,000 men;  and Abram rallied “318 trained young men who were born in his own house” to kill 799,996 of those men.

Now when Abram heard that his brother [kindred] was taken captive, he armed his three hundred and eighteen trained young men who were born in his own house, and went in pursuit as far as Dan. (Gen 14:14)

318 young men born in his own house? And these are just the trained ones? Where did they all come from? And how can so few destroy so many? That is 2,516/1 odds. Yikes!

The answer to these questions is found in the book of Yasher; it gives us the rest of the story and makes sense out of Torah.

Abram Taught Men To Serve Yehovah

Abram lived in the home of Noah for 39 years. When he was 50 he left there and went back to see his father (Terah), who was the head of Nimrod’s host for over 50 years in Babylon. At his father’s house he broke all his idols and was brought before Nimrod and then thrown into Nimrod’s fiery furnace with his brother Haran (a “fence-sitter,” just like so many men today). Haran died, but Abram walked in the fire for 3 days in the sight of almost a million men, all the people of the land. The ladies and children watched from a distance.

Afterword Abram received great honor and riches from Nimrod, and 300 men (with their families) became Abram’s servants.

Yasher 12:41 And Abram went forth from the king in peace, and many of the king’s servants followed him, and about three hundred men joined him.
42 And Abram returned on that day and went to his father’s house, he and the men that followed him, and Abram served Yehovah, his Elohim [not Nimrod] all the days of his life, and he walked in His ways and followed His law.
43 And from that day forward Abram inclined the hearts of ‘ha·a·dam’ seed to serve Yehovah.

Two years later Terah, Abram, Lot and their women and their servants left Ur for Canaan, but only came as far as Haran. To my surprise, Nahor and Milcah did not go with them at that time; they must have been still dwelling in Babylon.

Yasher 13:1 And Terah took his son Abram and his grandson Lot, the son of Haran, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, his son Abram’s woman, and all the souls of his household and went with them from Ur Casdim to go to the land of Canaan. And when they came as far as the land of Haran they remained there, for it was exceedingly good land for pasture, and of sufficient extent for those who accompanied them.

Please remember that Terah was a VERY wealthy man with many servants, and so were his sons (Haran and Nahor). When Haran died Lot would have inherited all that Haran had (including all his servants). I would guess, that when these men left Ur, that there were well over 400 men (many with families) who went with them. Abram is only 52 at this point.

When they reached Haran some (no number given) of the people of that land (men) joined themselves to Abram in the next 3 years.

Yasher 13:2 And the people of the land of Haran saw that Abram was good and upright with Elohim and men, and that Yehovah, his Elohim was with him, and some of the people of the land of Haran came and joined Abram, and he taught them the instruction of Yehovah and His ways; and these men remained with Abram in his house and they adhered to him.

Abram remained in Haran for 3 years before he left for Canaan the 1st time at 55, and he remained in Canaan for 15 years. How many men were born within his gates while he was in Babylon for 2 years, Haran for 3 years, Canaan for 15 years and now in Haran for the next 5 years?

At 70 Abram returned to his father and mother in Haran for 5 years. During that time 72 more men (with their families) joined Abram.

Yasher 13:20 At that time Abram returned and went to Haran to see his father and mother, and his father’s household, and Abram and his woman and all belonging to him returned to Haran, and Abram dwelt in Haran five years.
21 And many of the people of Haran, about seventy-two men, followed Abram and Abram taught them the instruction of Yehovah and his ways, and he taught them to know Yehovah.

When we pick up the story of Abram leaving Haran at 75 in Genesis 12, this time with Lot, we can finally begin to understand that Abram’s gates, a mobile tent city, was in excess of 1000 souls (nephesh) and perhaps as many as 600 men.

So now, “318 trained men born in Abram’s own house” begins to make more sense. All of these men, who have all left the kingdoms of their birth and joined Abram, are now spiritual men under Abram’s authority and dwelling in Yehovah’s kingdom on earth. And as Yehovah promised Abram…

I will bless those who bless thee, and I will curse him who curses thee; and in thee all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Gen 12:3)

The 800,000 men, ‘ha·a·Dam’s’ seed, a.k.a. belial’s seed who took Lot and his family,  never had a chance! And that is exactly how it will be when Yehovah raises up His spiritual men, all over the earth, in the latter days.

Please join me as we go through these chapters together.

144,000 (8) The Mighty Ones

I closed part 7 by saying,

“Those who come to Yehovah will be happy and content for almost a whole year after they join themselves (and their families) to the sent one nearest them. But in one single day something is going to happen which will turn the whole earth into a desolation and a wilderness. And it will be at this time that we will see these sent ones, these beings, these mighty ones go to war as the arm of Yehovah. You thought they seemed like “Gods” already? Wait until you see them fight. When the strength of the world comes against them, you will see Yehovah defend the few against the many.”

To understand the coming last days, we must have a better understanding of the series of events that will take place. And that is what this series (here is part 1) and my “Last Days” series is all about. These beings, these mighty ones, are the nation born in a day, at Passover and they are sealed and set-apart, as Yehovah’s Shalachim, His sent ones, at Shavuot.

It is at this Shavuot that people begin to come to Yehovah at each of these set-apart locations all over the world. It is in those locations that everyone who comes to them will receive provision, protection and instruction in righteousness.

But the elohim (the lawmakers and judges) of the world are scared; they see what is happening and realize  that all this trouble started at Passover the year before. So in a effort to ward off further loss of their workforce they will make a proclamation saying that there will be no more keeping of Passover. And this prohibition is the taking away of the eternal, the continual, the perpetual, the taw-meed (תּמיד, tâmîyd).

WordStudy defines taw-meed as: “A masculine noun meaning “continuity.” This word commonly refers to actions concerning religious rituals.’

And from the time that the continual H8548 slaughter is taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate is given, there shall be a thousand, two hundred, and ninety days. (Dan 12:11)

It appears to me that the elohim of the world will put forth this prohibition exactly 30 days prior to Passover with a warning that anyone who participates in Passover will be killed. Pharaoh tried to do the same thing. Yehovah told Moses to speak to Pharaoh.

Then you shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says Yehovah: “My son, My firstborn, is Israel. So I say to you, let My son go that he may serve Me.” But if you refuse to let him go, indeed I will kill your son, your firstborn.” ‘ ” (Exo 4:22-23)

This prohibition against the keeping of a true Passover IS the “abomination that makes desolate.” But we, Yehovah’s people, are going to do what He expects from us in each of our locations (all over the world); and because we obey only Him, we will see the might of the world come against us like a flood right after Passover.

So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. (Rev 12:15-16)

It is at this time that we will see the first of two great shakings in the earth. This one will plunge the earth back into the dark-ages and destroy the infrastructure of the New World Order (NWO). The moon and the sun will darken, cities, homes, factories will fall and the stars will be diminished. (I talk about this in my blog entitled “Are You ready for the Wilderness?“) This first great shaking of the earth which will kill / swallow the flood (which comes against us in all of our places), turns the world into a desolation and begins the 1260 day count-down to the great day of Yehovah. The second shaking will be more violent than the first and will seem as if the stars are falling as well. But what is falling from the skies are 75 pound chunks/hunks of burning brimstone (just like what happened in Sodom). In this context, you should also read my blog called “Will a True Passover Initiate the Great Tribulation?

Well, now things get very exciting for Yehovah’s shalachim, His mighty ones. Because they represent Him, the flood was not coming against His mighty ones (and all those who have come to them in the past year), it was coming against Him; and this attack on Him is license for Him and His host (His tse-va-ot) to go to war (in each of their locations) in order to make the whole world His. We are the mighty ones, a people who come, great and strong. The world will have no defense against us, we are the arm of Yehovah who look and act like, dare I say, “super heroes”.

The prophets of Yehovah talk about these men in many places, but Joel 2 is one of the most descriptive. They have the strength of a horse and can run as quickly, they can jump 75 feet in the air, they run between weapons and are not cut down; and when they yell / roar everyone around them pees their pants and runs away.  They  will not, and can not be killed!

Here is a  portion of Joel 2 for your consideration.

mighty onesBlow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of Yehovah is coming, for it is at hand. A day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness.
Like the morning clouds spread over the mountains. a people come, great and strong, the like of whom has never been; nor will there ever be any such after them, even for many successive generations.
A fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns; the land is like the Garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness. Surely nothing shall escape them.
Their appearance is like the appearance of horses [muscular and strong]; and like swift steeds, so they run with a noise like chariots; over mountaintops they leap, like the noise of a flaming fire that devours the stubble. Like a strong people set in battle array. Before them the people writhe in pain; all faces are drained of color.
They run like mighty ones, they climb the wall like men of war; every one marches in formation, and they do not break ranks. They do not push one another; every one marches in his own column. Though they lunge between the weapons, they are not cut down. They run to and fro in the city, they run on the wall; they climb into the houses, they enter at the windows like a thief.

The earth quakes before them, the heavens tremble; the sun and moon grow dark, and the stars diminish their brightness. Yehovah gives voice before His army [His host], for His camp is very great. For strong is the one who executes His word. For the day of Yehovah is great and very terrible. Who can endure it? (Joe 2:1-11)

Even Yasher talks about Jacob’s 10 sons going to war against the 7 great cities of the Canaanites. This 7 day battle also starts with a great shaking of the earth which puts fear into the hearts of all their (Canaan’s) mighty men. 50, 60 70,000 die when Jacob’s 10 sons (all in their teens and early 20s), and 102 servants go to war along with their dad (105 years old) and his bow. Here is a sampling of what they can do, but you should take the time to read chapters 37 – 40 in Yasher. Here is a PDF, my latest working copy of Yasher, which I use in my Sabbath class each week.

Yasher 37:17 And when Jacob ceased praying to Yehovah the earth shook from its place, and the sun darkened, and all these kings were terrified and a great consternation seized them.
18 And Yehovah hearkened to the prayer of Jacob, and Yehovah impressed the hearts of all the kings and their hosts with the terror and awe of Jacob’s seed.
19 For Yehovah caused them to hear the sound of chariots, and the sound of mighty horses from Jacob’s seed, and the sound of a great army accompanying them.
20 And these kings were seized with great terror at Jacob’s seed, and whilst they were standing in their quarters, behold Jacob’s seed advanced upon them, with one hundred and twelve men, with a great and tremendous shouting.

Yasher 37:23 And Jacob’s seed came near and advanced against all these kings and their armies, and they saw, and behold it was a very mighty people, numerous as the sand of the sea.
24 And Jacob’s seed called unto Yehovah and said, Help us O Yehovah, help us and answer us, for we trust in thee, and let us not die by the hands of these uncircumcised men, who this day have come against us.
42 And Jacob’s seed caused fifteen thousand of their men to fall, and they smote them as if smiting at gourds, and the rest fled for their lives.

Yasher 38:29 And Jacob’s seed came near to break open the doors of the gates of the city, and the inhabitants did not let them, for from the top of the wall they were casting stones and arrows upon them.
30 And the number of the people who were upon the wall was about four hundred men, and when Jacob’s seed saw that the men of the city would not let them open the gates of the city, they sprang and ascended the top of the wall, and Judah went up first to the east part of the city.
31 And Gad and Asher went up after him to the west corner of the city, and Simeon and Levi to the north, and Dan and Reuben to the south.
32 And the men who were on the top of the wall, the inhabitants of the city, seeing that Jacob’s seed were coming up to them, they all fled from the wall, descended into the city, and concealed themselves in the midst of the city.

Yasher 39:7 And the inhabitants of Arbelan heard the noise of the shouting of Jacob’s seed, and their roaring like the noise of lions and like the roaring of the sea and its waves.
8 And fear and terror possessed their hearts on account of Jacob’s seed, and they were terribly afraid of them, and they retreated and fled before them into the city, and Jacob’s seed pursued them to the gate of the city, and they came upon them in the city.

When you see these mighty ones fight you will understand why Isaiah says, “those who wait upon Yehovah will renew their strength”.

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting Elohim, Yehovah, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths [the young men who never get tired] shall faint and be weary, and the young men [the strength and the might of the world’s armies] shall utterly fall, but those who wait upon Yehovah shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. (Isa 40:28-31)

It is these shalachim (sent ones), Yehovah’s mighty ones (a.k.a the 144,000) and those who join themselves to them (as their “pure of heart” servants) who will be preserved through the great day of Yehovah at the end of the 1260 day’s tribulation and be brought into the millennial kingdom alive and well; just as Noah and those with Him came through the flood. Everyone else will perish from the earth and be forgotten forever.

I, for one, can’t wait to see Yehovah fulfill all the words that He has spoken concerning the coming last days; He always does what He says.

The light of Elohim begins to shine in the midst of a very dark world. The 70 nations are now gathered with Nimrod (and his princes) at the helm. They are leading all of ha-a-dam’s seed into ways they should not go. It is in this context that the light of Yehovah is raised for all to see in the life of Abram who, we will see in future lessons, warns Nimrod to turn from his wicked ways.

And they [Nimrod and his princes] said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.” (Gen 11:4)

Yasher 8:21 And all the princes of Nimrod and his great men took counsel together; Phut, Mitzraim, Cush and Canaan with their families, and they said to each other, Come let us build ourselves a city and in it a strong tower, and its top reaching heaven, and we will make ourselves famed, so that we may reign upon the whole world, in order that the evil of our enemies may cease from us, that we may reign mightily over them, and that we may not become scattered over the earth on account of their wars.

These wicked men, Ham’s seed, are rebelling against every thing that Yehovah has commanded them.

So Elohim blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them: “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth. (Gen 9:1)

We are still building Nimrodian kingdoms for ourselves, and establishing our own statutes, and ordinances and judgments; nothing has changed! Yehovah saw what was happening in Babylon and divided the people, the men (with their families), all over the face of the earth. We can read this story in the first part of Genesis 11.

The remainder of this chapter is all about the genealogy of Shem through Abram. It is in this context, of the rebellion of ha-a-dam’s seed, in which Yehovah brings great light in into our very dark world through his current Melchizedek, Shem.

The Melchizedek, the highest ranking member in Yehovah’s kingdom on the earth, who came from the line of Seth, and then the line of Shem after the flood. Each Melchizedek had the rod of Elohim passed down to him by the previous Melchizedek. It went from Adam, to Enoch, to Methuselah, to Noah, to Shem, to Abraham, to Jacob, to Joseph, and finally it came to Moses just before he brought Yehovah’s people out of the land of Egypt.

The Sons Of Men

It was while I was studying for this week’s Sabbath class on Genesis 5 and its corresponding material in the book of Yasher that I came upon the phrase “the sons of men” which piqued my interest. It was used 5 times in 4 verses.

Yasher 2:1 And it was in the hundred and thirtieth year of the life of Adam the sons of men thumbnailupon the earth, that he again knew Eve his woman, and she conceived and bare a son in his likeness and in his image, and she called his name Seth, saying, because Elohim has appointed me another seed in the place of Abel, for Cain has slain him.
2 And Seth lived one hundred and five years, and he begat a son; and Seth called the name of his son Enosh, saying, because in that time the sons of men began to multiply, and to afflict their souls and hearts by transgressing and rebelling against Elohim [the only true lawmaker and judge].
3 And it was in the days of Enosh that the sons of men continued to rebel and transgress against Elohim, to increase the anger of Yehovah against the sons of men.
4 And the sons of men went and they served other elohim, and they forgot Yehovah who had created them in the earth: and in those days the sons of men made images of brass and iron, wood and stone, and they bowed down and served them.
5 And every man made his elohim and bowed down to it, and the sons of men forsook Yehovah all the days of Enosh and his sons; and the anger of Yehovah was kindled on account of their works and abominations which they did in the earth.

Who are these people who are forsaking Yehovah and choosing new elohim (lawmakers and judges) and then, and even worse, making idols and serving them.

That is a violation of both the first and the second commandments, Yehovah’s basic instructions!

“I am Yehovah, thy Elohim, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shall have no other elohim existing before My face.” (Exo 20:2-3)

Thou shall not make for thyself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; thou shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, Yehovah thy Elohim, am a jealous Elohim, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons, to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments. (Exo 20:4-6)

I knew I had seen this phrase many times and decided it would be worthwhile to find out where; this same phrase is used only once in Torah and many times in the tanach.

But Yehovah came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men [be·ni’ ha·a·dam’] had built. (Gen 11:5)

Oh my – be·ni’ ha·a·dam’ is not “the sons of men” it is “‘the man’s’ seed“! And that man is the one whom I wrote about several weeks ago “who became the first of his kind,” AFTER  his fall. It was this man who could not be permitted access to the tree of life because he had become a creation that Yehovah never intended.

Remember: Ha·a·dam’ was created in Yehovah’s likeness and His image; he was Yehovah’s seed which had glory, and honor and immortality. But because of his actions, he became enosh – mortal man. He died a spiritual death that day, and probably did not even know it. And now, instead of being Yehovah’s seed, His kind, he became belial’s seed. And, as we saw in verse 1 above, this new kind of man is now producing other men, other seed, in his image and his likeness (not Yehovah’s)!

But Enosh’s first-born son, Cainan, began to turn “the sons of men” to the “service of Elohim.”

Yasher 2:12 And Cainan knew by his wisdom that Elohim would destroy the sons of men for having sinned upon earth [nothing has changed], and that Yehovah would, in the latter days [the latter days of the antediluvian world] bring upon them the waters of the flood.
13 And in those days Cainan wrote upon tablets of stone, what was to take place in time to come, and he put them in his treasures.
14 And Cainan reigned over the whole earth, and he turned some of the sons of men to the service of God.

Oh, so cool! Cainan treasured the word of The Elohim and turned some of the sons of men (ha·a·dam’ seed) to Yehovah’s service! Now compare this last verse  (14) with what I found in Psalms.

… Help, Yehovah, for the godly kind [חסיד, khaw·seed’] ceases! For the faithful disappear from among the sons of men [a·dam’ be·ni/seed]. (Psa 12:1)

Both of these verses contrast those involved with Yehovah’s service with “the sons of men.” These two groups of men are diametrically opposed to one another.

I love this word khaw·seed‘. Ha·a·dam’ was created in the image and likeness of Elohim; he was Elohim kind. But after the fall all males, you and I, are born as belial kind (wicked kind who serve other elohim).

But here is the good news of the kingdom; we, belial kind can once again become Elohim kind and once again be transformed into Yehovah’s created image and likeness which has all the glory and honor and Immortality that we were made to walk in.

“Gather to Me My saints [חסידי, my khaw·seed’, literally, “My kind“], who cut a covenant with Me by slaughter [זבח, zavach].” (Psa 50:5)

This covenant, which is cut through slaughter, only happens once a year, and is referring to the Passover slaughter; it is the time that the Ger can become the Ezrach, Elohim kind.

Well, we will talk about this more in my video teaching below. Please join me as I go through this week’s material.

Last Words Of Moses

last words of mosesDeuteronomy 33 has the last words of Moses to each of Israel’s tribes and the last words of Moses to Israel as a whole. It is the conclusion of Torah and Yehovah’s words to His called-out men, Israel’s seed.

Last words of MosesSo much of these last words of Moses seem to have much to do with latter-day events, things yet to come.

We saw many examples of the Hebrew qualitative plural in this section today. And even in the very last words of Moses. He said,

None like El of Yeshurun; in His majestic CLOUDS [the cloud which Yehovah dwells in] he rides heavens to thy aid. The eternal Elohim [the lawmaker and judge] is your refuge, and beneath his everlasting arms He will thrust out the enemy from before you, and will say, ‘Destroy!’ Then Israel shall dwell in safety, the fountain of Jacob alone. In a land of grain and new wine, his heavens shall also drop dew. Happy art thou, O Israel! Who is like unto thee, a people saved by Yehovah, a shield of thy help, and a sword of thy triumph! And thine deceptive enemies shall submit themselves unto thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places. (Deu 33:26-29)
