I Am Yehovah

I am YehovahMany times in Exodus chapters 6 – 10 Yehovah reveals himself to Moses saying “I am Yehovah;” and I see  a spiritual growth in Moses as he begins to understand the authority that Yehovah has ordained him to walk in.

Moses has felt inept to speak for Yehovah from the beginning. When Yehovah first spoke to Moses, his immediate response was his inability to speak well.

Then Moses said to Yehovah, “My Master [adoni], I am not eloquent, neither before nor since You have spoken to Your servant; but I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.” (Exo 4:10)

Here is Yehovah’s response to the man He has chosen to lead His people.

So the anger of Yehovah was kindled against Moses, and He said: “Is not Aaron the Levite your brother? I know that he can speak well. And look, he is also coming out to meet you. When he sees you, he will be glad in his heart. Now you shall speak to him and put the words in his mouth. And I will be with your mouth and with his mouth, and I will teach you what you shall do. So he shall be your spokesman to the people. And he himself shall be as a mouth for you, and you shall be to him as Elohim. (Exo 4:14-16)

So Moses went to Egypt and spoke to the elders of His people and to Pharaoh. However things did not go as Moses expected and he complained to Yehovah saying,

So Moses returned to Yehovah and said, “My Master [adoni], why have You brought trouble on this people? Why is it You have sent me? For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in Your name, he has done evil to this people; neither have You delivered Your people at all.” (Exo 5:22-23)

I Am Yehovah!

This time Yehovah answers saying “I am Yehovah!” Moses, and all Yehovah called-out men, must starting listening to what Yehovah says and begin acting in accordance with His words.

And Elohim spoke to Moses and said to him: “I am Yehovah. I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as Elohim Almighty, but by My name, Yehovah, I was not known to them. (Exo 6:2-3)

He goes on saying,

Therefore say to Israel’s seed [perversely know as “the children of Israel”]: ‘I am Yehovah; I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, I will rescue you from their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. I will take you as My people, and I will be your God. Then you shall know that I am Yehovah your Elohim who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. And I will bring you into the land which I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; and I will give it to you as a possession: I am Yehovah.‘ ” (Exo 6:6-8)

And it came to pass, on the day Yehovah spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt,that Yehovah spoke to Moses, saying, “I am Yehovah. Speak to Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say to you.” (Exo 6:28-29)

Moses is a man, just like all men. He has fears, doubts and feelings of inadequacy. Even after all the Elohim  and creator of all things has spoken to him he still says “I am of uncircumcised lips.” Listen to what Yehovah says this time!

Yehovah Says Moses Shall Be As Elohim To Pharaoh

So Yehovah said to Moses: “See, I have made you as Elohim to Pharaoh, and Aaron your brother shall be your prophet. (Exo 7:1)

When Moses begins his ongoing dialogue with Pharaoh he has Aaron handle the Rod of Elohim. But it is not long before we begin to see Moses say and do things that even Yehovah did not tell him to do.

So Yehovah did according to the word of Moses. And the frogs died out of the houses, out of the courtyards, and out of the fields. (Exo 8:13)

Before long it is Moses who is doing everything as he begins to understand and walk in the authority which Yehovah has given to him.

For many years I have understood that Yehovah’s name is represents the idea that “what He says, He will do”. But I still have to say that I was very pleased when I went back to the first verse I read that gave me this understanding and saw the very same words. “I am Yehovah!”

I will put My spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I am Yehovah. I have spoken it and performed it!,” says Yehovah.’ ” (Eze 37:14)

In the last days Yehovah will raise up men, just like he raised up Moses, who will speak for Him in the earth. They will all understand that what Yehovah says, He will do. They too will speak for Yehovah and see Him answer according to their words.  The “he” which Yehovah is speaking about here is the plural “he” who will speak for Him.

His delight is in the fear of Yehovah, and he shall not judge by the sight of his eyes, nor decide by the hearing of his ears. But with righteousness he shall judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth. He shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked. (Isa 11:3-4)

Here is my Sabbath teaching on the 2nd through the ninth plagues which fell on Egypt.

I Am Yehovah, What I Say, I Will Do!

Spiritually Born Seed

Spiritually Born SeedGenesis 15 is all about Yehovah’s promise to Abram to give him “seed” [זרעך, ze·rah]. This word often gets translated as “descendants;” but to be clear, when Yehovah talks about “seed,” He is always referring to men. It is the man who carries the seed of future generations and it is the man who produces after his own kind; ha·a·dam (the man) begat seed after his own image and kind after the fall, not Yehovah’s. But we will see, in this chapter, that the seed Yehovah is promising Abram, is spiritually born seed  and this seed is Yehovah’s kind.

To really understand this portion of Yehovah’s word we must have a broad understanding of the Torah and Yasher in order to see how all the pieces fit together. Exodus 12 says that Israel, Yehovah’s spiritually born seed, came out of Egypt exactly 430 years to that very same day.

Now the sojourn of Israel’s seed who lived in Egypt was four hundred and thirty years. And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years–on that very same day–it came to pass that all the armies of Yehovah went out from the land of Egypt. (Exo 12:40-41)

This number always bothered me because I knew that Israel could not have been under Pharaoh’s rule for 430 years; the numbers just do not work. When Jacob came with his family to Egypt, Levi and his sons, Gershon, Kohath, and Merari, were already born and his daughter (their sister, Yochebed) was in uterus. She was counted among the 70 souls, but only 69 were enumerated in the role in Genesis 46.

Moses’ father was Amram, the son of Kohath, and his mother was Yochebed the daughter of Levi. So unless Yochebed had Moses at 350, something is wrong with this picture and I had to solve this mystery.

So how long were we in Egypt? Where does the count for the 430 years,to the very same day, begin? How does the prophecy, which Abram received in his dream in Genesis 15, concerning the 400 years of Abram’s seed dwelling in “Egypt,” fit into this story? And how does a man become a spiritually born seed of Abram, a.k.a. “Israel’s seed”?

When I read Yasher for the first time (7 years ago or so) some of these answers started to emerge, but it was not until I was preparing this lesson for my Sabbath class this week that all the pieces fell together. Here is what I found then.

Jasher 81:4 And at the end of two hundred and ten years, Yehovah brought forth Israel’s seed from Egypt with a strong hand.
5 And Israel’s seed traveled from Egypt and from Goshen and from Rameses, and encamped in Succoth on the fifteenth day of the first month.

This is the day that we began by eating our Passover lambs and goats; it is the 1st day of the feast of Unleavened Bread. And because I know that Yehovah does not change and His word endures forever I had to find out what happened 430 years ago on that very same day.

Armed with this new number (210 years we were in “Egypt”) I began to work backwards. The 210 years had to start with Jacob arriving in Egypt. So how old was Jacob when he arrived?

Pharaoh said to Jacob, “How old are you?” And Jacob said to Pharaoh, “The days of the years of my pilgrimage are one hundred and thirty years; few and evil have been the days of the years of my life, and they have not attained to the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.” (Gen 47:8-9)

Now, that was progress; 210 + 130 = 340 years; so I kept looking.

Next, in my quest to understand the 430 years, I asked, “How old was Isaac when Jacob was born? And I found that also.

Afterward his brother came out, and his hand took hold of Esau’s heel; so his name was called Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them. (Gen 25:26)

I see it now, but I did not see it then.  Probably because I was looking for 430 years to that very same day and not 400 years to that very same day; 340 + 60 = 400! But my quest to understand the 430 continued with a partial answer right before my eyes. 430 years minus 400 years left a deficit of 30 years. Abram was 100 when Isaac (as we now know is the spiritually born seed) was born on the moed called “the time of Life.But in Genesis, the 1st time Yehovah makes his promise to Abram concerning the seed he is 75 years old. Augh! that left me a 5 year shortage; instead of 430 years I could only come up with 425 years. I shared my research with some friends but they also had no answers.

Finally the day came (about 5 years ago) that I discovered the missing 5 years. I was again reading Yasher (for about the 4th time) and this verse literally jumped out at me.

Jasher 13:17 And it was in the fifteenth year of Abram’s dwelling in the land of Canaan, which is the seventieth year of the life of Abram, and Yehovah appeared to Abram in that year and he said to him, I am Yehovah who brought thee out from Ur Casdim to give thee this land for an inheritance. 18 Now therefore walk before me and be perfect and keep my commands, for to thee and to thy seed I will give this land for an inheritance, from the river Mitzraim unto the great river Euphrates. 19 And thou shalt come to thy fathers in peace and in good age, and the fourth generation [this is referring to Moses, the only other man in Torah to call Yehovah “adoni” / “my master”] shall return here in this land and shall inherit it forever; and Abram built an altar, and he called upon the name of Yehovah who appeared to him, and he brought up sacrifices upon the altar to Yehovah.

From the time Abram was 55, he had dwelt in Canaan for 15 year and in Haran for 5, before he left for Canaan, for the 2nd time, at 75 as recorded in Genesis 12. Yehovah first spoke to Abram about his seed, the spiritually born men, inheriting their land when Abram was 70 (at the end of his 1st sojourn in Canaan); and this solved the riddle for me concerning the 430 years to that very same day. What is it that Yehovah is teaching us about that very same and special day?

What day (that very same day) was it that Yehovah spoke to Abram? I have found that Yehovah speaks to His men primarily on His moeds; Sabbaths, new moons and feast days. That day, that very same day, was what we now call the Passover; but back then it was called “the time of life.” That very same day that Abram’s spiritually born seed, Isaac, was  birthed;  and the very same day that Israel’s seed, Yehovah’s spiritually born men, were birthed as well. Here is my out-line for both the 430 and the 400 year prophecies which Yehovah gave to Abram when he was 70 and when he was 78, respectively. So much to learn, so little time.

Abram’s Spiritually Born Seed

     0 Yehovah‘s promise to Abram
Jasher 13:17 And it was in the fifteenth year of Abram’s dwelling in the land of Canaan, which is the seventieth year of the life of Abram, and Yehovah appeared to Abram in that year and he said to him, I am Yehovah who brought thee out from Ur Casdim to give thee this land for an inheritance. 18 Now therefore walk before me and be perfect and keep my commands, for to thee and to thy seed I will give this land for an inheritance, from the river Mitzraim unto the great river Euphrates.

+   5  years later Abram (75) departs from Haran
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. (Gen 12:4)

+ 25  years after Abram leave Haran Isaac is born
Now Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. (Gen 21:5)

+ 60  years is Isaac’ age when Jacob is born
Afterward his brother came out, and his hand took hold of Esau’s heel; so his name was called Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them. (Gen 25:26)

+130 years is Jacob speaks to Pharaoh when he arrives in Egypt with his family
Pharaoh said to Jacob, “How old are you?” And Jacob said to Pharaoh, “The days of the years of my pilgrimage are one hundred and thirty years; few and evil have been the days of the years of my life, and they have not attained to the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.” (Gen 47:8-9)

+210 Years in which we actually did live in Egypt
Jasher 81:4 And at the end of two hundred and ten years, Yehovah brought forth the sons of Israel from Egypt with a strong hand. 5 And the sons of Israel traveled from Egypt and from Goshen and from Rameses, and encamped in Succoth on the fifteenth day of the first month.

  ___
  430 Years Total

This means that Abram received this prophecy, when he was 70 years old, on the 15th day of the first month!

Oh my, the ramifications of this new knowledge is mind-boggling for folks  who will leave their doctrines and traditions of men behind and begin to learn only Yehovah’s words given through Moses.

WE are so blessed to have Yehovah’s word, in some ways more than Abram. He could not see what we can now see clearly if we will take the time and do the work to understand the message line upon line.

“Whom will he teach knowledge? And whom will he make to understand the message? Those just weaned from milk? Those just drawn from the breasts? For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little.” (Isa 28:9-10)

  • Abram was in spiritual Egypt his whole life.
  • Ishmael can not be the promised seed.
  • Isaac and Israel’s seed were both born on the same day.
  • The “smoking stove” and the “flaming torch” that passed through the pieces in Abram’s dream was the “pillar of smoke and fire” which appeared with Moses and led us out of our Egypt and into Yehovah’s kingdom and toward our land.
  • All this is going to happen again!

Please consider joining my Sabbath classes each week; but be warned, these classes are NOT for those who love the doctrines and traditions of men that we have all learned. This is strong meat, for those who have eyes that see and a heart that desires to understand more.

Here is what we went through in this week.

Spirit Wisdom And The Rod Of His Mouth

spirit wisdomIn My Sabbath class it has taken us 3 years but we finished Deuteronomy this week and will finish the last few pages of the book of  Yasher next time. However, I still plan to go through the first 6 chapters of Joshua before we conclude this series. I want to cover those chapters in Joshua because I believe they help us to see what we can expect in the coming last days.

Just before we, Israel’s seed, began our conquest of the land of Canaan we circumcised all our males and then held a true Passover as  codified in Exodus 12; not a Seder, nor a communion service and certainly not a foot-washing service. We did what Yehovah commanded and then He fought with us.

Moses was the prophet who Yehovah used to bring Israel’s seed (with their families) out of Egypt the 1st time, and He will do it again.

“Therefore behold, the days are coming,” says Yehovah, “that it shall no more be said, ‘Yehovah lives who brought up Israel’s seed from the land of Egypt,’ but, ‘Yehovah lives who brought up Israel’s seed from the land of the north and from all the lands where He had driven them.’ ” (Jer 16:14-15)

But “the prophet like Moses” whom Yehovah will use to deliver those men who want to follow only Yehovah the second time is not a lone man; he is the plural he, Israel, Yehovah’s spiritual seed, His first firstborn. He is the nation who will be born in a day sometime in the near future. (Every year the men who comprise this nation grow, and it is just a matter of time before Yehovah has all the Ezrach he needs to deliver His people from their bondage.)

This week we saw that Joshua took the place of Moses because Moses disobeyed Yehovah and “hit” the rock with Yehovah’s rod, instead of “speaking to it.” I think this miracle was to be performed by Moses’ lips alone because Yehovah was setting up a shadow picture of the 2nd great Exodus and He does not have a rod for each one of His set-apart men in the last days.

At the end of Torah Joshua took over where Moses left off and it says that spirit wisdom was on him.

Now Joshua the son of Nun was full of spirit wisdom, for Moses had laid his hands on him; so Israel’s seed heeded him, and did as Yehovah had commanded Moses. But since then there has not arisen in Israel a prophet like Moses, whom Yehovah knew face to face, in all the signs and wonders which Yehovah sent him to do in the land of Egypt, before Pharaoh, before all his servants, and in all his land, and by all that mighty power and all the great terror which Moses performed in the sight of all Israel. (Deu 34:9-12)

It appears to me that Joshua lacked the ability to talk to Yehovah face to face. The prophets like Moses who Yehovah is each Passover raising up will speak to Yehovah face to face because they have made “knowing Him” their sole ambition. We talked at length about how this last part Deuteronomy, this summation of Torah, relates to Isaiah 11 which describes the prophet like Moses whom Yehovah is raising up in the last days. Men who have spirit wisdom and wield “the rod” of their mouth.

Spirit Yehovah shall rest upon Him, spirit wisdom and understanding, spirit counsel and might, spirit knowledge and of fear of Yehovah. His delight is in the fear of Yehovah, and he shall not judge by the sight of his eyes, nor decide by the hearing of his ears; but with righteousness he shall judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth. He shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked. (Isa 11:2-4)

Yehovah is described as spirit Elohim in Genesis 1 and it is this spirit which will rest upon all of His servants (men) in the coming last days. I wrote a series of articles about knowledge, understanding and wisdom and found it interesting that those 3 were here also; but what impressed me most was the foundation for it all. What is the foundation? The fear of Yehovah! And truly the fear of Yehovah IS the beginning of spirit wisdom.

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)

144,000 (5) – Not Defiled With Women

They sang, as it were, a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth. (4) These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being first-fruits to God and to the Lamb. (Rev 14:3-4)

Oh, how I hate reading the New Testament (NT); and much more, trying to make sense of it. Because of it we have learned and believed many things, lies, that have no foundation in Yehovah’s eternal and unchanging words given through His servant Moses and His other Prophets.

Yehovah said through Isaiah,

To the Torah [Yehovah’s word given to Moses] and to the testimony [Yehovah’s words given to His other prophets]! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. (Isa 8:20)

Revelation 14:4 is one of the main reasons I deleted my original video entitled “144,000 – virgin of Israel.” The NT would have you believe that Yehovah’s message to the world is all about this man who people call “the lamb;” but that man who Christians and Messianics worship is nothing more than a “golden calf” who was given to them by the Catholic Church to turn them away for doing what the Creator expects from men and their women.

The song which these faithful men will sing, “seems” like a new song; but it is really the song of Moses reminding Yehovah’s people NOT to follow any other lawmaker and judge but Him.

We saw in part 1 and in part 2 of this series, that “the virgin” has nothing to do with His servants’ sexual nature and EVERYTHING to do with who they serve and their 2nd / spiritual birth. Everything born of the flesh will return to the dust. but that which is born of the spirit will have life eternal.

So what does it mean to be “defiled with women?” Again, the minds of most people will turn to the flesh and assume that since “defiled with women” is used in the same sentence as the word “virgins” that it must have something to do with sex. AUGH!

I took two years of Koine Greek in college; I did not enjoy it then and I enjoy it even less now. If only I had spent my time learning ancient Hebrew. Why learn the language of the perverted commentaries when we can learn the language of the Creator? The word being translated in the verse above as “defiled” in the Greek is the word “moluno.”

G3435 μολύνω
moluno
To defile, besmear or soil as with mud or filth (1Co 8:7; Rev 3:4; Rev 14:4).
Syn.:
miaínō (G3392), to stain;
spilóō  (G4695), to spot, pollute;
phtheírō  (G5351), to corrupt.
Ant.:
katharízō (G2511), to cleanse. (WordStudy)

Moluno has nothing to do with sex and EVERYTHING to do with being soiled, corrupted and muddied. It is only used 2 other times in the NT,  neither of which has any sexual overtones. Here they are.

But not everyone knows this truth. Some people have been so used to idols that to this day when they eat such food they still think of it as food that belongs to an idol; their conscience is weak, and they feel they are defiled by the food. 1Co 8:7

Please don’t think you understand this verse without understanding Leviticus 17 and what Yehovah says about “Meat ‘sacrificed’ to ‘idols’.” The main point here is for us to understand that there are no sexual overtones here, their conscience is weak, and they “feel” they are “defiled by the food.”

The other place is Revelation 3:4.

You have a few names [men] even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. Rev 3:4

This, in fact, is the opposite (not moluno). What is the opposite in this case? “Walking with Yehovah in “white,” their garments are the garments of righteousness.

As Yehovah sanctifies His holy men, His called-out ones, so also a man sanctifies his woman (there is no word for wife in Torah) by the washing of the word.

Being defiled with women is the opposite of becoming a glorious nation without spot or wrinkle. Instead of the man sanctifying his woman by cleansing her by the washing of water with the word. His woman is defiling, besmearing, soiling or otherwise blackening her man by encouraging him to go a way he should not. She is encouraging her man to live according to his flesh, instead of his higher nature.

Sarai defiled Abram by suggesting that he take Hagar in order to produce a seed, instead of waiting for Yehovah’s promised seed; and he listened to her – AUGH!

Now Sarai, Abram’s woman, bare him no son: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar. And Sarai said unto Abram, “Behold now, Yehovah hath restrained me from bearing; go in, I pray thee, unto my handmaid; it may be that I shall build by her.” And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai. (Gen 16:1-2)

Notice Abram was not Abraham, and Sarai was not Sarah yet; they were both, as it were, still living in their flesh according to the lower nature.

Solomon too, in the end, was defiled with women.

And he had seven hundred woman, princesses, and three hundred concubines; and his women turned away his heart. For it was so, when Solomon was old, that his women turned his heart after other elohim; and his heart was not loyal to Yehovah his Elohim, as was the heart of his father David. 1Ki 11:3-4

Now, speaking of David: Remember I said David is a shadow picture of the NT’s “144,000,” and the ones referred to as Israel, the male-child, the banners, the branch,  His servants, the good shepherds, the prophet like Moses and many other name in the Torah and in the Prophets.

defiled with womenDavid arrives with the ark of Yehovah

David has just brought the ark of Yehovah into His city. It is one of the best days of his life and he is coming home to “bless his family.” But his 1st woman, Michal, tried to defile him when he arrived home. She was angry because he danced uncovered before Yehovah and the maids of the land. Listen to the sarcasm drip from her lips as she speaks.

Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, “How glorious was the king of Israel today, uncovering himself today in the eyes of the maids of his servants, as one of the base fellows shamelessly uncovers himself!” (2Sa 6:20)

“What will the neighbors think?!”

David, however, is not going to be defiled by this woman, one of many in his household. Listen to his reply to her.

So David said to Michal, “It was before Yehovah [that I danced], who chose me instead of your father and all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of Yehovah, over Israel. Therefore I will play music before Yehovah. And I will be even more undignified than this, and I will be humble in my own sight. But as for the maidservants of whom you have spoken, by [even] them I will be held in honor.” Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no child to the day of her death. (2Sa 6:21-23)

Perhaps Michal had no child because David never “went in” to her again? David was not going to be defiled with women, and especially not the daughter of Saul. David was not held in honor by the daughter of Saul, and I think it was because of a prideful and Jezebel spirit that caused her to forget her place before her master.

Is it possible that man is the head of his woman because a woman is more pragmatic and thus, more likely to be led according to her lower nature and is more prone to follow the broad paths of life? Could this be why a woman is created to be a “suitable aide” instead of a co-leader or, worse yet, a leader of the family? Could this be part of the reason why the kingdoms of the world are currently in such a mess?

As for My people, infants are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths.” (Isa 3:12)

According to the state, a woman is an equal partner in all decisions. Is that what the Creator intended?

The answer is an emphatic “NO!A man’s sin is on him; as bone of a man’s bone and flesh of a man’s flesh, what a man’s woman does, he does; she is he! And since her sin is on him, he can not allow himself to be defiled with any of his women. This defiling is also what happened with “the man.” and his woman in Genesis 3.

I have one more thing that I would like to discuss pertaining to these  amazing and set-apart men of the last days. What does it mean to be “redeemed from the earth?” We will talk about that next time.

A Prophet Like Moses

A prophet like MosesTwice in Deuteronomy we read that a prophet like Moses would be born.

“Yehovah, thy Elohim [thy lawmaker and judge], will raise up for thee a Prophet like me (a prophet like Moses) from thy midst, from thy brethren. Him you shall hear, according to all thou desired of Yehovah, thy Elohim, in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of Yehovah, my Elohim, nor let me see this great fire anymore, lest I die.’
“And Yehovah said to me: ‘What they have spoken is good. I will raise up for them a Prophet like you (a prophet like Moses) from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. And it shall be that whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him. (Deu 18:15-19)

Now Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had laid his hands on him; so Israel’s seed heeded him, and did as Yehovah had commanded Moses. But since then there has not arisen in Israel a prophet like Moses, whom Yehovah knew face to face. (Deu 34:9-10)

This prophet speaks Yehovah’s words in Yehovah’s name; no other words or names!

How else is this prophet like Moses?

Moses was born for a specific purpose. Just before he was born, Moses’ sister Miriam prophesied saying, a male-child would be born who would save Israel (not the Egyptians) from the hands of Egypt.

Yasher 68:1 And it was at that time the spirit of Elohim was upon Miriam the daughter of Amram the sister of Aaron, and she went forth and prophesied about the house, saying, Behold a male-child will be born unto us from my father and mother this time, and he will save Israel from the hands of Egypt.

And Israel was saved by the the mighty arm of Yehovah working through Moses. As I see it this “prophet” is the “seed of the woman” who was spoken of in the garden just before Adam (and his woman followed him) was kicked out of the garden by Yehovah.

And I will put enmity between you [Satan] and the woman [Yehovah’s spiritually born men], and between your seed [those who live their lives in the flesh] and her seed [the seed of spiritually born men]; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.” (Gen 3:15)

Oh – we get so confused when we think in the flesh and ignore the things of the spirit. A woman has no seed! But the spiritual man is born of flesh AND spirit. This is the difference between those who dwell on the earth and those who dwell in heaven.

The Israel who was delivered from Egypt were the spiritually born men who were not allowed to leave until right after the Passover in which they became Ezrach, spiritually born, 2nd born men.

Ecclesiastes says,

That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which it may be said, “See, this is new?” It has already been in ancient times before us. (Ecc 1:9-10)

Just like the male-child delivered Israel out of Egypt the first time, Continue reading A Prophet Like Moses
