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.

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.

The Rod Of God (Elohim)

rod of godIn the 59th year after Moses (now 78) fled from Egypt he finds the rod of God (Elohim – THE lawmaker and judge), His token of authority, and plucks it from Reuel’s (his future father-in-law’s) garden. This rod of God has been carried by each of His Melchizedeks, the leaders of his people since the time of Adam.

Note: I do not use the word “God” in my writings or in my everyday speech because of all the preconceived religious ideas and false understanding that go along with that word. Instead I choose to use the Hebrew word “El” which means “lawmaker and judge.” But for purposes of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) I have chosen to use the words “rod of God” in this article.

If you will remember Moses left Egypt and went to the King of Cush, Kikianus. who was for 9 years trying to take back his city from Balaam, the son of Beor. And when Kikianus dies and Moses is made king, he does take back the city and rules Cush for 40 years. When he leaves Cush and comes to Reuel, Moses is put in a dungeon for 10 years because Reuel fears the men of Cush who sent Moses away. Moses would have died there if not for Reuel’s eldest daughter, Zipporah, who daily and secretly brought him bread and water.

Yasher 77:23 But they increased the latter work more than the former, and Israel’s seed sighed at this and their cry ascended to the Elohim on account of their labor.
24 And Elohim heard the voice of Israel’s seed and their cry in those days, and Elohim remembered towards them his covenant which he had made with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
25 And Elohim saw the burden of Israel’s seed, and their heavy work in those days, and he determined to deliver them.
26 And Moses the son of Amram was still confined in the dungeon in those days, in the house of Reuel the Midianite; and Zipporah the daughter of Reuel did support him with food secretly day by day.

Now, in the 206th year of Jacob’s seed dwelling in the land of Egypt, the scene is finally being set for Yehovah to bring His spiritual seed out of Egypt with His strong-arm.  After 10 years Zipporah petitions her father to release Moses, but Reuel assumes that Moses is dead. Look what Reuel finds when he finally checks on him.

Yasher 77:32 And Zipporah answered her father, saying, Surely thou hast heard that the Elohim of the Hebrews is great and awful, and does wonders for them at all times.
33 He it was who delivered Abraham from Ur of the Chaldeans, and Isaac from the sword of his father, and Jacob from the messenger of Yehovah who wrestled with him at the ford of Jabbuk.
34 Also with this man has he done many things, he delivered him from the river in Egypt and from the sword of Pharaoh, and from Cush’s seed, so also can he deliver him from famine and make him live.
35 And the thing seemed good in the sight of Reuel, and he did according to the word of his daughter, and sent to the dungeon to ascertain what became of Moses.
36 And he saw, and behold the man Moses was living in the dungeon, standing upon his feet, praising and praying to the Elohim of his ancestors.

Moses, a man of Elohim, is alive and well and on his feet in the dungeon praising and praying to the Elohim of his ancestors. Moses knows Yehovah and has walked with Him in the good times of his life and in the very low times. Now Yehovah is going to exalt Moses and use him to lead His men (and their families) out of Egypt. Any wonder what happens next to Moses?

A Male Child Will Be Born Unto Us

a male childA male child will be born!

The book of Yasher includes many details that are not available to us in Torah; details that helps Torah make sense, and it will do it again many times in this Sabbath teaching.

We saw last time, that in the 102nd year after Israel’s seed came, with our families, to Egypt that there arose a new king who did not know us.

Today we begin with the marriage of Amram, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi to Jochebed, THE daughter of Levi, Amram’s aunt. Jochebed arrived in Egypt in her mother’s womb, so her age helps us determine how many years after we arrived in Egypt that their children (Miriam, Aaron and Moses) were born. And Yasher fills in much detail concerning their births as well.

Right after the birth of Miriam and Aaron, Pharaoh has a dream and Balaam the son of Beor interprets his dream for him.

Yasher 67:18 And Balaam the son of Beor answered the king and said unto him, This means nothing else but a great evil that will spring up against Egypt in the latter days.
19 For a male child will be born to Israel who will destroy all Egypt and its inhabitants, and bring forth the Israelites from Egypt with a mighty hand.

Next Balaam suggests that Pharaoh take counsel concerning what is to be done with Israel to prevent the birth of a male child who will deliver Israel; and he calls his two counselors. Look at who one of them is.

Yasher 67:24 And the king sent and called his two counselors Reuel the Midianite and Job the Uzite, and they came and sat before the king.

Reuel is Moses’ future father-in-law and also a seed of Abraham through Katurah; he is a man of good understanding who counsels the Pharaoh to leave Israel alone or send them away. He gives Pharaoh a long history about those who contended with Jacob and his seed and finishes with these words. Continue reading A Male Child Will Be Born Unto Us

Moses Hits The Rock

To have a priesthood many believe that we must have the red heifer ashes in order to cover our uncleanliness, our tamei condition caused by being exposed to the dead; but to make the ashes of the red heifer we must have a priesthood. What is the answer to this “catch 22′” situation? Yehovah’s word always has answers.

Moses Hits The RockFrom the last verse of Numbers chapter 19 to the first verse of chapter 20, thirty-eight years have passed for the Israelites in the wilderness. The chapter begins with the death and burial of Miriam in the 1st month of the 40th year. Why 40th year? You’ll have to listen to find out.

We now have a whole new set of men, 20 years to about 40 years old, who are now supposed to follow Moses. But it is hard to overcome the training we received when we were young; and this new group of about 600,000 men, leaders of their families, is no exception.

Moses Hits The Rock

Israel’s seed is once again complaining to Moses and Aaron; this time about a shortage of water. Moses knows that a complaint against him is a complaint against Yehovah and falls on His face to pray for them. Yehovah appears and gives Moses simple and clear instructions, “Take THE rod and speak to the rock.” Moses fails to do this and that means the death of Aaron is at hand and Moses’ death is imminent.

On the first day of the fifth month in the fortieth year Aaron went up Mount Hor and did not return, Israel mourned the death of Aaron for 30 days.

We finished with an outlined overview our conquest of the of the land on the East side of the Jordan and compared that to what we, Yehovah’s called-out people,  can expect in the coming last days.
