Burning bush burns false gods

Shabbat Shalom Loved One!

Okay, once again we review some of the problems we as believers seem to be facing as we recognize we have inherited some lies and pagan traditions that we must now come apart from. Many of us have been told that we are raptured out of here before any trouble even starts. It appears our Messiah (Yahshua) does not agree with this casual approach toward the End of the Age as he warns us to be sober and alert: (Rev 16:15) Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches and keeps his garments on, lest he walks naked and they see his shame. Let me explain what Yahshua showed me about this verse- remember that John the Baptist’s dad was Zechariah a priest of the order of Abiyah. There were 24 orders of priests that each served two weeks during the year serving the High Priest (Cohen Gadol) and they all served during the Feasts of the Lord. (Not Jewish Feasts only like we were taught) These priests would help with the evening and morning oblation sacrifices and it was their job to stay sober and alert and keep the fire burning on the altar. (Sound familiar?) IF they stayed sober and alert the fire would consume the sacrifice and the altar would be clean and ready for the morning oblation or free will offering. Even more important, the smell of the aroma (obedience) would be a sweet aroma to the Father. Sometime during the night the Cohen Gadol (High Priest) would sneak in like a thief in the night and check the fire on the altar and be assured that the priest was sober and alert and doing what he was supposed to do- keeping the fire burning on the altar! (Perhaps like we likewise are supposed to?) Upon checking the altar and finding the fire burning and the servant priest sober and alert, the High Priest would have sweet fellowship with the obedient sober priest. However, if the Cohen Gadol (High Priest) found the fire gone out, he would rekindle the fire and take part of the fire and find the drunk, sleeping priest and set his linen garments on fire! The fire would burn his garments quickly (For lack of a better example- explode in flames like a dead Christmas tree) and that priest would sober up quickly, put out the fire of his remaining linen garments, and run home naked and ashamed! I expect that is what many Christians who have believed the lies of a pre-tribulation rapture with no urgent need for sobriety and the Father’s business will be doing- going home naked and ashamed- they are not concerned about being used to produce fruit for His Kingdom- they are only concerned with getting out of here before great trouble and testing starts! We are here to produce fruit for His Kingdom! That should be our top priority that we be not ashamed when we stand in front of Him. It is not about us whining and complaining and demanding we get out before the trouble starts. Remember, He casts the fearful (Comment those that trust hasatan’s power to destroy us more than trusting YHWH to deliver us) into hell with the murderers, sorcerers etc. We must produce fruit for His Kingdom or ashamedly be tossed into the fire by our Creator. Sadly, pastors and teachers who have erroneously taught that tickle your ears philosophy of pre-trib rapture will be persecuted and killed for that lie when the Great Tribulation starts and we have not escaped prior. People will be screaming at them “you lied to us!” as they hang them in anger. We should understand and believe (1Co 15:52) in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. Since you and I are keeping these Feasts and rehearsals (Appointments) of our Creator we can now understand that He is referring to the Feast of Trumpets and should remember that there are 7 seals and 6 Trumps before the LAST Trump! That is why it is said in Thessalonians that we need to understand these appointed times like first century believers did as a result of keeping and obeying them: (1Th 5:1) But of the times and the seasons, (Appointments, in Hebrew Moedim-rehearsals) brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. (1Th 5:2) For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. (1Th 5:3) For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them (The world or unbelievers), as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. (1Th 5:4) But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. (1Th 5:5) Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. (1Th 5:6) Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. No need to be sober if we “born again Christians” are to be raptured out before any trouble starts! What absolute nonsense is this careless doctrine of devils that has believers expecting pre-trib rapture!

We are now confronted with some previously unknown truth: Jeremiah prophesied that in the DAY OF AFFLICTION (Comment: Hebrew idiom for Jacob’s Trouble or all of us grafted into Israel’s trouble-not just the Jews or Judah’s and also known as the Great Tribulation in the last days) we would recognize (YHWH reveals truth) and become aware of the fact that we have added to and subtracted from His FEASTS and Biblical commands! These are lies that really don’t please Him because they have pagan roots and are manmade (added and subtracted from the WORD) traditions that make the word of YHWH of none effect! (Jer 16:19) O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.

(Deu 4:2) “Do not add to the Word which I command you, and do not take away from it1, so as to guard the commands of יהוה your Elohim which I am commanding you. Footnote: 1See also 12:32, Prov. 30:6, Rev. 22:18-19.

We must remind ourselves- can we even imagine thinking we were serving YHWH our whole lives’ and hear Him tell us: we inherited lies and were workers of lawlessness- that He never knew us and to depart from us; that we actually were disobedient following pagan traditions we inherited? This experience would and will cause many to go screaming in horror, weeping and gnashing of teeth, into the flames of hell! Oh Yah- Change us NOW! Reveal your TRUTH to us that we may be pleasing in your sight! Okay, with repentance in our thoughts let’s look and see what our ancestors of the faith did and how YHWH responds. We can expect like responses. Remember all things are possible for YHWH, the only reason they are not possible for you and I is our UNBELIEF! What gets rid of unbelief? PRAYER AND FASTING according to Yahshua! Prayer AND Fasting, not prayer without fasting or fasting without prayer! If we really care about our loved ones we will seek YHWH’s face with prayer and fasting and quit worrying…Yahshua promises in Revelation to throw the fearful (worriers) into hell with the adulterers, murderers etc. Why? Because, if that is who we become under great fiery trials we have trusted the power of hasatan to do us harm, more than the power of YHWH to deliver us! Could this possibly apply to you and me? NOT IF we pray and fast and overcome! Perhaps PRAYER AND FASTING might be the more appropriate way to “ring in the New Year” of Pope Gregory! Now we turn our hearts and minds to this week’s study of the names of the twelve tribes, and glean the prophetic significance of the fellowship of HIS SUFFERING for us who are alive and remain at the LAST TRUMP!

Here are the Torah Scriptures for this week: Shemot “Names”

Exodus 1:1-6:1; Isaiah 27:5-28:13; Isaiah 29:22-23; Jeremiah 1:1-2:3; Judges Chapters 13, 14, and 15

(Exo 1:1) And these are the names of the children of Yisra’ĕl who came to Mitsrayim with Yaʽaqoḇ, each one with his household: (Exo 1:2) Re’uḇĕn, Shimʽon, Lĕwi, and Yehuḏah; (Exo 1:3) Yissasḵar, Zeḇulun, and Binyamin; (Exo 1:4) Dan and Naphtali, Gaḏ and Ashĕr. (Exo 1:5) And all those who were descendants of Yaʽaqoḇ were seventy beings, as Yosĕph was already in Mitsrayim. (Exo 1:6) And Yosĕph died, and all his brothers, and all that generation. (Exo 1:7) And the children of Yisra’ĕl bore fruit and increased very much, multiplied and became very strong, and the land was filled with them.

Note how this new King (Pharaoh) did not recognize what Joseph had done for Egypt by hearing from Heaven and keeping Egypt alive. It is not likely that he did not actually know about him and what he did, it is far more likely that he did not appreciate Joseph and likely hated YHWH and the heritage and blessings afforded by obeying Him…Also note that we (like the midwives below) choose whom we fear: hasatan (pharaoh) who can only kill the body or YHWH Elohim who can kill both body and soul and cast you into hell fires!

(Exo 1:8) Then a new sovereign (Pharaoh) arose over Mitsrayim, who did not know Yosĕph, (Exo 1:9) and he said to his people, “See, the people of the children of Yisra’ĕl are more and stronger than we, (Exo 1:10) come, let us act wisely towards them, lest they increase, and it shall be when fighting befalls us, that they shall join our enemies and fight against us, and shall go up out of the land.” (Exo 1:11) So they set slave-masters over them to afflict them with their burdens, and they built for Pharaoh Supply cities, Pithom and Raʽamses. (Exo 1:12) But the more they afflicted them, the more they increased and grew, and they were in dread of the children of Yisra’ĕl. (Exo 1:13) And the Mitsrites made the children of Yisra’ĕl serve with harshness, (Exo 1:14) and they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in mortar, and in brick, and in all kinds of work in the field, all their work which they made them do was with harshness. (Exo 1:15) Then the sovereign of Mitsrayim spoke to the Heḇrew midwives, of whom the name of one was Shiphrah and the name of the other Puʽah, (Exo 1:16) and he said, “When you deliver the Heḇrew women, and see them on the birth stools, if it is a son, then you shall put him to death, but if it is a daughter, then she shall live.” (Exo 1:17) But the midwives feared Elohim, and did not do as the sovereign of Mitsrayim commanded them, and kept the male children alive. (Exo 1:18) So the sovereign of Mitsrayim called for the midwives and said to them, “Why have you done this, and kept the male children alive?” (Exo 1:19) And the midwives said to Pharaoh, “Because the Heḇrew women are not like the Mitsrite women. For they are lively and give birth before the midwives come to them.” (Exo 1:20) So Elohim was good to the midwives and the people increased and became very numerous. (Exo 1:21) And it came to be, because the midwives feared Elohim that He provided households for them.

Suppose Moses was a Levite? They get blessed in spite of Pharaoh by his own house! They even now must pay Moses’ family for mom to breastfeed!

(Exo 1:22) And Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, “Throw every son who is born into the river, and keep alive every daughter.” Exo 2:1 and a man of the house of Lĕwi went and married a daughter of Lĕwi. Exo 2:2 and the woman conceived and bore a son. And she saw that he was a lovely child, and she hid him three months. Exo 2:3 And when she could hide him no longer, she took an ark of wicker for him, and coated it with tar and pitch, and put the child in it, and laid it in the reeds by the edge of the river. Exo 2:4 and his sister stood at a distance, to know what would be done to him. Exo 2:5 and the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river, and her young women were walking by the river-side. And when she saw the ark among the reeds, she sent her female servant to get it, Exo 2:6 and opened it and saw the child, and see, the baby wept. So she had compassion on him, and said, “This is one of the children of the Heḇrews.” Exo 2:7 and his sister said to Pharaoh’s daughter, “Shall I go and call a nurse for you from the Heḇrew women to nurse the child for you?” Exo 2:8 and Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Go.” And the girl went and called the child’s mother. Exo 2:9 and Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Take this child away and nurse him for me, then I shall pay your wages.” So the woman took the child and nursed him. Exo 2:10 and the child grew, and she brought him to Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Mosheh, saying, “Because I have drawn him out of the water.” Exo 2:11 And in those days it came to be, when Mosheh was grown, that he went out to his brothers and looked at their burdens. And he saw a Mitsrite beating a Heḇrew, one of his brothers. Exo 2:12 So he turned this way and that way, and when he saw no one, he smote the Mitsrite and hid him in the sand. Exo 2:13 and he went out the second day and saw two Heḇrew men fighting, and he said to the one who did the wrong, “Why do you smite your neighbor?” Exo 2:14 and he said, “Who made you a head and a judge over us? Do you intend to slay me as you slew the Mitsrite?” And Mosheh feared and said, “Truly, the matter is known!” Exo 2:15 And Pharaoh heard of this matter, and he sought to kill Mosheh. But Mosheh fled from the face of Pharaoh and dwelt in the land of Miḏyan. And he sat down by a well. Exo 2:16 and the priest of Miḏyan had seven daughters. And they came and drew water, and they filled the troughs to water their father’s flock, Exo 2:17 but the shepherds came and drove them away. Then Mosheh stood up and came to their rescue, and watered their flock. Exo 2:18 and they came to Reʽuw’ĕl their father, and he said, “How is it that you have come so soon today?” Exo 2:19 and they said, “A Mitsrite rescued us from the hand of the shepherds, and he also drew enough water for us and watered the flock.” (Exo 2:20) And he said to his daughters, and where is he? Why then have you left the man? Call him, and let him eat bread. (Exo 2:21) And Moses consented to live with the man; and he gave his daughter Zipporah to Moses. (Comment: You all alone bachelors should take note- be kind to others and YHWH will give you a wife!) (Exo 2:22) And she bore a son, and he called his name Gershom; for he said, I have become an alien (sojourner) in a foreign land. (Exo 2:23) And it happened during these many days that the king of Egypt died, and the sons of Israel groaned from the slavery. And they cried, and their cry went up to YHWH from the slavery. (Exo 2:24) And YHWH heard their groaning, and YHWH remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. (Exo 2:25) And YHWH saw the sons of Israel, and YHWH knew them. Exo 3:1 And Mosheh was shepherding the flock of Yithro his father-in-law, the priest of Miḏyan. And he led the flock to the back of the wilderness, and came to Ḥorĕḇ, the mountain of Elohim.

Burning was not consuming- YHWH declares where He is: IS SET APART or Holy ground

Exo 3:2 And the Messenger of יהוה appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. And he looked and saw the bush burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed. Exo 3:3 And Mosheh said, “Let me turn aside now, and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.” (Exo 3:4) And YHWH saw that he turned aside to see, and YHWH called to him from the midst of the thorn bush, and said, Moses! Moses! And he said, behold me. (Exo 3:5) And He said, do not come near here. Pull off your sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground. (Exo 3:6) And He said, I am the Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Isaac, and the Elohim of Jacob. And Moses hid his face, for he feared to look upon YHWH. (Exo 3:7) And YHWH said, seeing I have seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and I have heard their cry from before their taskmasters; for I know his sorrows. (Exo 3:8) And I have come down to deliver them from the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up from that land to a good and broad land, to a land flowing with milk and honey; to the place of the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Yeḇusites. (Exo 3:9) And now, behold, the cry of the sons of Israel has come to me, and I also have seen the oppression with which the Egyptians are oppressing them. (Exo 3:10) And now, come, and I will send you to Pharaoh, and you bring my people out, the sons of Israel out of Egypt. (Exo 3:11) And Moses said to YHWH Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring out the sons of Israel from Egypt? (Exo 3:12) And He said I will be with you, and this shall be the sign for you that I have sent you, when you bring out the people from Egypt: You shall serve YHWH on this mountain. (Exo 3:13) And Moses said to YHWH, Behold, I shall come to the sons of Israel and say to them, the Elohim of your fathers has sent me to you; and they will say to me, what is His name? What shall I say to them? (Exo 3:14) And Elohim said to Moses, I AM THAT I AM; and He said, you shall say this to the sons of Israel, I AM has sent me to you. (Exo 3:15) And YHWH said to Moses again, you shall say this to the sons of Israel, YHWH, the Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Isaac, and the Elohim of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is my name forever, and this is my memorial from generation to generation. Exo 3:16 “Go, and you shall gather the elders of Yisra’ĕl together, and say to them, ‘יהוה Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Aḇraham, of Yitsḥaq, and of Yaʽaqoḇ, appeared to me, saying, “I have indeed visited you and seen what is done to you in Mitsrayim; Exo 3:17 and I say: I am bringing you up out of the affliction of Mitsrayim to the land of the Kenaʽanite and the Ḥittite and the Amorite and the Perizzite and the Ḥiwwite and the Yeḇusite, to a land flowing with milk and honey.” ’ Exo 3:18 “And they shall listen to your voice. And you shall come, you and the elders of Yisra’ĕl, to the sovereign of Mitsrayim, and you shall say to him, ‘יהוה Elohim of the Heḇrews has met with us. And now, please, let us go three days’ journey into the wilderness to slaughter to יהוה our Elohim.’

The U.N. and One World Order (Pharaoh) will still not let you go…

Exo 3:19 “But I know that the sovereign of Mitsrayim is not going to let you go, not even by a strong hand. Exo 3:20 “And I shall stretch out My hand and smite Mitsrayim with all My wonders which I shall do in its midst. And after that he shall let you go. Exo 3:21 “And I shall give this people favor in the eyes of the Mitsrites. And it shall be, that when you go, you shall not go empty-handed. Exo 3:22 “But every woman shall ask from her neighbor and from the stranger in her house, objects of silver, and objects of gold, and garments. And you shall put them on your sons and on your daughters, and shall plunder the Mitsrites.” Exo 4:1 And Mosheh answered and said, “And if they do not believe me, nor listen to my voice, and say, ‘יהוה has not appeared to you?’ ” Exo 4:2 and יהוה said to him, “What is that in your hand?” And he said, “A rod.” Exo 4:3 And He said, “Throw it on the ground.” So he threw it on the ground, and it became a serpent. And Mosheh fled from it. Exo 4:4 And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Reach out your hand and take it by the tail” – so he reached out his hand and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand – Exo 4:5 so that they believe that יהוה Elohim of their fathers, the Elohim of Aḇraham, the Elohim of Yitsḥaq, and the Elohim of Yaʽaqoḇ, has appeared to you.” Exo 4:6 and יהוה said to him again, “Now put your hand in your bosom.” And he put his hand in his bosom, and when he took it out, and see, his hand was leprous, like snow. Exo 4:7 And He said “Put your hand in your bosom again.” So he put his hand in his bosom again, and drew it out of his bosom, and see, it was restored like his other flesh. Exo 4:8 “And it shall be, if they do not believe you, nor listen to the voice of the first sign, they shall believe the voice of the latter sign. Exo 4:9 “And it shall be, if they do not believe even these two signs, or listen to your voice, that you shall take water from the river and pour it on the dry land. And the water which you take from the river shall become blood on the dry land.” Exo 4:10 And Mosheh said to יהוה, “O יהוה, I am not a man of words, neither before nor since You have spoken to Your servant, for I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.” Exo 4:11 and יהוה said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Or who makes dumb, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, יהוה? Exo 4:12 “And now, go, and I shall be with your mouth and teach you what to say.” Exo 4:13 But he said, “O יהוה, please send by the hand of him whom you would send.” Exo 4:14 and the displeasure of יהוה burned against Mosheh, and He said, “Is not Aharon the Lĕwite your brother? I know that he speaks well. And see, he is also coming out to meet you. And when he sees you, he shall be glad in his heart. Exo 4:15 “And you shall speak to him and put the words in his mouth. And I am with your mouth and with his mouth, and I shall teach you what to do. Exo 4:16 “And he shall speak for you to the people. And it shall be that he shall be a mouth for you, and you shall be an elohim1 for him. Footnote: 1Or mighty one, which is proof that Elohim is but a title, indicating order or authority – it is not a proper name. Exo 4:17 “And take this rod in your hand, with which you shall do the signs.” Exo 4:18 Then Mosheh went and returned to Yithro his father-in-law, and said to him, “Please let me go and return to my brothers who are in Mitsrayim to see whether they are still alive.” And Yithro said to Mosheh, “Go in peace.” Exo 4:19 and יהוה said to Mosheh in Miḏyan, “Go, return to Mitsrayim, for all the men are dead who sought your life.” Exo 4:20 So Mosheh took his wife and his sons and set them on a donkey, and he returned to the land of Mitsrayim. And Mosheh took the rod of Elohim in his hand. Exo 4:21 and יהוה said to Mosheh, “As you go back to Mitsrayim, see that you do all those wonders before Pharaoh which I have put in your hand. But I am going to harden his heart, so that he does not let the people go.

Final judgment of these so called “gods” Egypt worshipped!

Note also that the word serve used in V: 23 is H5647 below means to worship:

עבד ‛âbad aw-bad'

A primitive root; to work (in any sense); by implication to serve, till, (causatively) enslave, etc.: - X be, keep in bondage, be bondmen, bond-service, compel, do, dress, ear, execute, + husbandman, keep, labor (-ing man), bring to pass, (cause to, make to) serve (-ing, self), (be, become) servant (-s), do (use) service, till (-er), transgress [from margin], (set a) work, be wrought, worshipper.

The reason any of us are set free by Yahshua today is that we might become free to worship Him! YHWH tends to allow the wickedness of the cup to fill up before bringing deliverance and victory! We must learn to worship in Spirit and Truth!

(Exo 4:22) “And you shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus said יהוה, “Yisra’ĕl is my son, my first-born,

(Exo 4:23) so I say to you, let my son go to serve me. But if you refuse to let him go, see, I am killing your son, your first-born.” ’ ” (Exo 4:24) and it came to be on the way, in the lodging place, that יהוה met him and sought to kill him. (Exo 4:25) And Tsipporah took a sharp stone and cut off the foreskin of her son and threw it at Mosheh’s feet, and said, “You are indeed a bridegroom of blood to me!” (Exo 4:26) So He let him go. Then she said, “You are a bridegroom of blood,” because of the circumcision. (Exo 4:27) And יהוה said to Aharon, “Go to meet Mosheh in the wilderness.” And he went and met him on the mountain of Elohim, and kissed him. (Exo 4:28) Mosheh then told Aharon all the words of יהוה who had sent him, and all the signs which He had commanded him. (Exo 4:29) And Mosheh went with Aharon and gathered together all the elders of the children of Yisra’ĕl. (Exo 4:30) And Aharon spoke all the words which יהוה had spoken to Mosheh. Then he did the signs before the eyes of the people. (Exo 4:31) And the people believed. And they heard that יהוה had visited the children of Yisra’ĕl and that He had looked on their affliction, and they bowed their heads and did obeisance. Exo 5:1 and afterwards Mosheh and Aharon went in and said to Pharaoh, “Thus said יהוה Elohim of Yisra’ĕl, ‘Let My people go, so that they keep a festival to me in the wilderness.’ ” Exo 5:2 And Pharaoh said, “Who is יהוה, that I should obey His voice to let Yisra’ĕl go? I do not know יהוה, nor am I going to let Yisra’ĕl go.” Exo 5:3 and they said, “The Elohim of the Heḇrews has met with us. Please, let us go three days’ journey into the wilderness and slaughter to יהוה our Elohim, lest He fall upon us with pestilence or with the sword.” Exo 5:4 but the sovereign of Mitsrayim said to them, “Mosheh and Aharon, why do you take the people from their work? Get back to your burdens.” Exo 5:5 And Pharaoh said, “See, the people of the land are many now, and you make them cease from their burdens!” Exo 5:6 and the same day Pharaoh commanded the slave-drivers of the people and their foremen, saying, Exo 5:7 “You are no longer to give the people straw to make bricks as before. Let them go and gather straw for themselves. Exo 5:8 “And lay on them the required amount of bricks which they made before, do not diminish it. For they are idle, that is why they cry out, saying, ‘Let us go and slaughter to our Elohim.’ Exo 5:9 “Let more work be laid on the men, so that they labor in it, and not pay attention to words of falsehood.” Exo 5:10 and the slave-drivers of the people and their foremen went out and spoke to the people, saying, “Thus said Pharaoh, ‘I do not give you straw. Exo 5:11 ‘Go; take straw for yourselves, wherever you find it, for your work shall not be diminished.’ ” Exo 5:12 and the people were scattered in all the land of Mitsrayim – to gather stubble for straw. Exo 5:13 and the slave-drivers were hurrying them on, saying, “Complete your work, your daily amount, as when there was straw.” Exo 5:14 Also the foremen of the children of Yisra’ĕl, whom Pharaoh’s slave-drivers had set over them, were beaten and were asked, “Why have you not completed your task in making bricks both yesterday and today, as before?” Exo 5:15 and the foremen of the children of Yisra’ĕl came and cried out to Pharaoh, saying, “Why do you treat your servants this way? Exo 5:16 “There is no straw given to your servants, and they say to us, ‘Make bricks!’ And see, your servants are beaten, but your own people are at fault.” Exo 5:17 But he said, “You are idle! You are idle! That is why you say, ‘Let us go and slaughter to יהוה.’ Exo 5:18 “So now go, work. And straw is not given to you, but deliver the amount of bricks.” Exo 5:19 and the foremen of the children of Yisra’ĕl saw that they were in trouble after it was said; “You are not to diminish your daily amount of bricks.” Exo 5:20 and when they came out from Pharaoh, they met Mosheh and Aharon who stood there to meet them. Exo 5:21 and they said to them, “Let יהוה look on you and judge, because you have made us loathsome in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of his servants to give a sword in their hand to kill us.” Exo 5:22 And Mosheh returned to יהוה and said, “יהוה, why have you done evil to this people? Why did you send me? Exo 5:23 “Ever since I came to Pharaoh to speak in your name He has done evil to this people. And you have not delivered your people at all.” Exo 6:1 And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Now see what I do to Pharaoh, for with a strong hand he is going to let them go, and with a strong hand he is going to drive them out of his land.”

Getting rid of Asherim (Easters) note that “in that day” is a Hebrew idiom for the Day of YHWH! (The Day of the Lord!) Note that the “stones of the Altar” or the lively stones comprising you and I – whose temple we are! We will get cleaned up from pagan traditions and make ourselves ready to be a bride without spot or blemish or we will likely only be a GUEST at the wedding without proper garments; whom the Groom (Yahshua) says to gather and cast out where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth!)

Isaiah 27:5 “Or let him take hold of my strength and make peace with me. Let him make peace with me!” Isaiah 27:6 those who come He causes to take root in Yaʽaqoḇ, Yisra’ĕl shall blossom and bud. And they shall fill the face of the world with fruit. Isaiah 27:7 Has He smote him as He smote those who were smiting him? Or were they slain as those they had slaughtered?

Isaiah 27:8 in measure, by sending her away, you contended with her. He shall take away by His rough wind in the day of the east wind. Isaiah 27:9 Therefore by this the crookedness of Yaʽaqoḇ is covered. And this is all the fruit of taking away his sin: when he makes all the stones of the altar like chalkstones that are beaten to dust – Ashĕrim and sun-pillars rise no more. Isaiah 27:10 for the city of defence is lonely, a home forsaken and left like a wilderness – there the calf feeds, and there it lies down, and shall consume its branches. Isaiah 27:11 When its twigs are dry they are broken off, women come and set them on fire. It is a people of no understanding, therefore He who made them has no compassion on them, and He who formed them shows them no favor. Isaiah 27:12 and in that day it shall be that יהוה threshes, from the channel of the River to the wadi of Mitsrayim. And you shall be gathered one by one1, O children of Yisra’ĕl. Footnote: 1Jeremiah. 3:14-15. Isaiah 27:13 And in that day it shall be that a great horn (TRUMPET) is blown, and those who were perishing in the land of Ashshur and the outcasts in the land of Mitsrayim shall come, and shall worship יהוה on the set-apart mountain, in Yerushalayim. Isaiah 28:1 Woe to the proud crown of the drunkards of Ephrayim, and to the fading flower of its splendid comeliness that is on the head of the fertile valley, to those who are overcome with wine! Isaiah 28:2 See, יהוה has one who is mighty and strong, like a downpour of hail and a destroying storm, like a flood of mighty waters overflowing, who casts down to the earth with the hand. Isaiah 28:3 the proud crown of the drunkards of Ephrayim, is trampled underfoot; Isaiah 28:4 and the fading flower of its splendid comeliness that is on the head of the fertile valley, like the first fruit before the summer, which, when one sees it, he eats it up while it is still in his hand. Isaiah 28:5 in that day יהוה of hosts is for a crown of splendor and a head-dress of comeliness to the remnant of His people, Isaiah 28:6 and a spirit of right-ruling to him who sits in right-ruling, and strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate. Isaiah 28:7 and these too have gone astray through wine, and through strong drink wandered about. Priest and prophet have gone astray through strong drink, they are swallowed up by wine, they wander about through strong drink, they go astray in vision, and they stumble in right-ruling. Isaiah 28:8 All tables shall be covered with vomit, no place without filth. Isaiah 28:9 whom would He teach knowledge? And whom would He make to understand the message? Those weaned from milk, those taken from the breasts! Isaiah 28:10 for it is: command upon command, command upon command, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little. Isaiah 28:11 for with a jabbering lip and a foreign tongue He speaks to this people, Isaiah 28:12 to whom He said, “This is the rest, give rest to the weary,” and, “This is the refreshing.” But they would not hear. Isaiah 28:13 (COMMENT: TORAH IS FOUNDATIONAL!) But the Word of יהוה was to them, “Command upon command, command upon command, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little,” so that they go and shall stumble backward, and be broken and snared and taken captive. Isaiah 29:22 therefore thus said יהוה, who ransomed Aḇraham, concerning the house of Yaʽaqoḇ, “Yaʽaqoḇ is no longer put to shame, no longer does his face grow pale. Isaiah 29:23 “For when he sees his children, the work of My hands, in his midst, they shall set apart My Name, and set apart the Set-apart One of Yaʽaqoḇ, and fear the Elohim of Yisra’ĕl. (Jer 1:1) The words of Yirmeyahu the son of Ḥilqiyahu, of the priests who were in Anathoth in the land of Binyamin, (Jer 1:2) to whom the word of יהוה came in the days of Yoshiyahu son of Amon, sovereign of Yehuḏah, in the thirteenth year of his reign. (Jer 1:3) And it came in the days of Yehoyaqim, son of Yoshiyahu, sovereign of Yehuḏah, until the end of the eleventh year of Tsiḏqiyahu, son of Yoshiyahu, sovereign of Yehuḏah, until the exile of Yerushalayim in the fifth month.

This is also spoken of you- LOVED ONE! (Maybe not all prophets to the nations)

He still watches over His word to perform it! So speak and do Loved One.

(Jer 1:4) Now the word of יהוה came to me, saying, (Jer 1:5) “Before I formed you in the belly I knew you, and before you came out of the womb I did set you apart – I appointed you a prophet to nations.” (Jer 1:6) And said I, “Ah, Master יהוה! See, I do not know how to speak, for I am a youth.” (Jer 1:7) And יהוה said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’ but go to all to whom I send you, and speak whatever I command you. (Jer 1:8) “Do not fear their faces, for I am with you to deliver you,” declares יהוה. (Jer 1:9) Then יהוה put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and יהוה said to me, “See, I have put my words in your mouth. (Jer 1:10) “See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the reigns, to root out and to pull down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant.” (Jer 1:11) And the word of יהוה came to me, saying, “What do you see, Yirmeyahu?” And I said, “I see a branch of an almond tree.” (Jer 1:12) And יהוה said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to do it.” (Jer 1:13) And the word of יהוה came to me a second time, saying, “What do you see?” And I said, “I see a boiling pot, and it is facing away from the north.” (Jer 1:14) And יהוה said to me, “Out of the north evil is set loose on all the inhabitants of the land. (Jer 1:15) “For look, I am calling all the clans of the reigns of the north,” declares יהוה. “And they shall come and each one set his throne at the entrance of the gates of Yerushalayim, against all its walls all around, and against all the cities of Yehuḏah. (Jer 1:16) “And I shall pronounce my judgments against them concerning all their evil, because they have forsaken me, burned incense to other mighty ones, and bowed themselves to the works of their own hands. (Jer 1:17) “Now, gird up your loins and arise, and speak to them all that I command you. Do not break down before their faces, lest I break you before them. (Jer 1:18) “For look, I have made you this day a walled city and an iron column, and bronze walls against all the land, against the sovereigns of Yehuḏah, against her heads, against her priests, and against the people of the land. (Jer 1:19) “And they shall fight against you, but not prevail against you. I am with you,” declares יהוה, “to deliver you.” (Jer 2:1) And the word of יהוה came to me, saying, (Jer 2:2) “Go, and you shall cry in the hearing of Yerushalayim, saying, ‘Thus said יהוה, “I remember you, the kindness of your youth, the love of your bride hood, when you went after Me in the wilderness, in a land that was not sown.

(Jer 2:3) “Yisra’ĕl was set-apart to יהוה, the first-fruits of His increase. All who ate of it became guilty – evil came upon them,” declares יהוה.’ ”

Angels are always sent to the righteous (Obedient) to bring deliverance. This “Messenger” just might be Yahshua for His name is wondrous and angels never exalt any but YHWH!

(Judges 13:1) And again the children of Yisra’ĕl did evil in the eyes of יהוה, so יהוה gave them into the hand of the Philistines for forty years. (Judges 13:2) And there was a certain man from Tsorʽah, of the clan of the Danites, whose name was Manowaḥ. And his wife was barren and had not borne. (Judges 13:3) And a Messenger of יהוה appeared to the woman and said to her, “See now, you are barren and have not borne, but you shall conceive, and you shall bear a son.

(Judges 13:4) “And now, please guard, and do not drink wine or strong drink, and do not eat any unclean food. (Judges 13:5) “For look, you are conceiving and bearing a son. And let no razor come upon his head, for the youth is a Nazirite to Elohim from the womb on. And he shall begin to save Yisra’ĕl out of the hand of the Philistines.” (Judges 13:6) And the woman came and spoke to her husband, saying, “A Man of Elohim came to me, and His appearance was like the appearance of a Messenger of Elohim, very awesome. But I did not ask Him where He was from, and He did not declare to me His name. (Judges 13:7) “And He said to me, ‘See, you are conceiving and bearing a son. And now, drink no wine or strong drink, nor eat any unclean food, for the youth is a Nazirite to Elohim from the womb to the day of his death.’ ” (Judges 13:8) And Manowaḥ prayed to יהוה, and said, “O יהוה, please let the Man of Elohim whom you sent come to us again and teach us what to do for the youth who is to be born.” (Judges 13:9) And Elohim listened to the voice of Manowaḥ, and the Messenger of Elohim came to the woman again as she was sitting in the field, but Manowaḥ her husband was not with her. (Judges 13:10) And the woman ran hurriedly and informed her husband, and said to him, “See, He has appeared to me, the Man who came to me the other day!” (Judges 13:11) And Manowaḥ arose and went after his wife, and came to the Man, and he said to Him, “Are You the Man who spoke to this woman?” And He said, “I am.” (Judges 13:12) And Manowaḥ said, “Now let your words come true! What is to be the rule for the youth’s life and his work?” (Judges 13:13) And the Messenger of יהוה said to Manowaḥ, “Let the woman guard all that I said to her. (Judges 13:14) “Let her not eat any food that comes from the vine, neither let her drink wine or strong drink, or eat any unclean food. Let her guard all that which I have commanded her.” (Judges 13:15) And Manowaḥ said to the Messenger of יהוה, “Please let us detain you, and prepare a young goat for You.” (Judges 13:16) And the Messenger of יהוה said to Manowaḥ, “Though you detain Me, I do not eat your food. But if you offer a burnt offering, offer it to יהוה.” For Manowaḥ did not know He was a Messenger of יהוה. (Judges 13:17) Then Manowaḥ said to the Messenger of יהוה, “What is your name? When your words come true, then we shall esteem you.” (Judges 13:18) And the Messenger of יהוה said to him, “Why do you ask my name, since it is wondrous?” (Judges 13:19) And Manowaḥ took the young goat with the grain offering, and offered it upon the rock to יהוה. And He did wondrously while Manowaḥ and his wife looked on. (Judges 13:20) And it came to be, as the flame went up toward the heavens from the altar that the Messenger of יהוה went up in the flame of the altar. And Manowaḥ and his wife were watching, and they fell on their faces to the ground. (Judges 13:21) And the Messenger of יהוה did not appear any more to Manowaḥ and his wife. Then Manowaḥ knew that He was a Messenger of יהוה. (Judges 13:22) And Manowaḥ said to his wife, “We shall certainly die, because we have seen Elohim!” (Judges 13:23) But his wife said to him, “If יהוה had been pleased to put us to death, He would not have accepted a burnt offering and a grain offering from our hands, nor would He have shown us all this, nor would He have let us hear the like of this!” (Judges 13:24) So the woman bore a son and called his name Shimshon. And the child grew, and יהוה blessed him. (Judges 13:25) And the Spirit of יהוה began to move him at Maḥanĕh Dan, between Tsorʽah and Eshta’ol. (Judges 14:1) And Shimshon went down to Timnah, and saw a woman in Timnah of the daughters of the Philistines. (Judges 14:2) And he went up and informed his father and mother, saying, “I have seen a woman in Timnah of the daughters of the Philistines. And now, take her for me for a wife.” (Judges 14:3) But his father and mother said to him, “Is there no woman among the daughters of your brothers, or among all my people, that you should take a wife from the uncircumcised Philistines?” And Shimshon said to his father, “Take her for me, for she is pleasing in my eyes.” (Judges 14:4) However, his father and mother did not know that it was of יהוה, that He was seeking an occasion to move against the Philistines. At that time the Philistines were ruling over Yisra’ĕl. (Judges 14:5) Then Shimshon went down to Timnah with his father and mother, and came to the vineyards of Timnah, and saw a young lion came roaring at him. (Judges 14:6) And the Spirit of יהוה came mightily upon him, and he tore it apart as the tearing apart of a young goat, with naught in his hand. But he did not make known to his father or his mother what he had done. (Judges 14:7) And he went down and spoke to the woman, and she pleased Shimshon well. (Judges 14:8) And when he returned later to take her, he turned aside to look at the carcass of the lion, and saw a swarm of bees and honey in the carcass of the lion. (Judges 14:9) And he took some of it in his hands and went along, eating. And he came to his father and mother, and gave them, and they ate. But he did not make known to them that he took the honey out of the carcass of the lion. (Judges 14:10) So his father went down to the woman. And Shimshon gave a feast there, for young men used to do so. (Judges 14:11) And it came to be, when they saw him that they brought thirty companions to be with him.

Riddles and gambling can cause problems- the wicked will do evil to win as we see below

(Judges 14:12) And Shimshon said to them, “Please let me put forth a riddle to you. If you clearly solve and explain it to me within the seven days of the feast, then I shall give you thirty linen garments and thirty changes of garments. (Judges 14:13) “But if you are unable to explain it to me, then you shall give me thirty linen shirts and thirty changes of garments.” And they said to him, “Put forth your riddle and let us hear it.” (Judges 14:14) And he said to them, “Out of the eater came forth food, and out of the strong came forth sweetness.” And for three days they were unable to explain the riddle. (Judges 14:15) And it came to be on the seventh day that they said to Shimshon’s wife, “Entice your husband to explain the riddle to us, or else we burn you and your father’s house with fire. Have you invited us in order to take what is ours? Is it not?” (Judges 14:16) And Shimshon’s wife wept before him, and said, “You only hate me, and do not love me! You have put forth a riddle to the sons of my people, but you have not explained it to me.” And he said to her, “Look, I have not explained it to my father or my mother, and should I explain it to you?” (Judges 14:17) And she had wept before him the seven days while their feast lasted. And it came to be on the seventh day that he informed her, because she pressed him so much. She then explained the riddle to the sons of her people. (Judges 14:18) And the men of the city said to him on the seventh day before the sun went down, “What is sweeter than honey? And what is stronger than a lion?” And he said to them, “If you had not ploughed with my heifer, you would not have solved my riddle!” (Judges 14:19) Then the Spirit of יהוה came upon him mightily, and he went down to Ashqelon and smote thirty of their men, stripped them, and gave the changes of garments to those who had explained the riddle. And his displeasure burned, and he went back up to his father’s house. (Judges 14:20) And Shimshon’s wife was given to his companion, who had been his friend.

(Judges 15:1) And it came to be, after some time, in the days of wheat harvest, that Shimshon visited his wife with a young goat. And he said, “Let me go in to my wife, into her room.” But her father would not permit him to go in. (Judges 15:2) And her father said, “Indeed, I thought that you hated her intensely; so I gave her to your companion. Is not her younger sister better than she? Please, take her instead.” (Judges 15:3) And Shimshon said to them, “This time I am blameless regarding the Philistines if I do evil to them!” (Judges 15:4) And Shimshon went and caught three hundred foxes, and took torches, and turned them tail to tail, and put a torch between each pair of tails, (Judges 15:5) and set the torches on fire, and sent them out into the standing grain of the Philistines, and burned up both the shocks and the standing grain, even the vineyards and olive-trees. (Judges 15:6) And the Philistines said, “Who did this?” And they answered, “Shimshon, the son-in-law of the Timnite, because he took away his wife and gave her to his companion.” Then the Philistines went up and burned her and her father with fire. (Judges 15:7) And Shimshon said to them, “Though you do this, yet I shall take revenge on you, and after that I cease.” (Judges 15:8) And he smote them hip and thigh, a great slaughter, and went down and dwelt in the cleft of the rock of Ěytam. (Judges 15:9) The Philistines then went up and encamped in Yehuḏah, and spread out against Leḥi. (Judges 15:10) and the men of Yehuḏah said, “Why have you come up against us?” And they answered, “We have come up to bind Shimshon, to do to him as he has done to us.” (Judges 15:11) Then three thousand men of Yehuḏah went down to the cleft of the rock of Ěytam and said to Shimshon, “Do you not know that the Philistines are rulers over us? Why have you have done this to us?” And he said to them, “As they did to me, so I did to them.” (Judges 15:12) And they said to him, “We have come down to bind you, to give you into the hand of the Philistines.” And Shimshon said to them, “Swear to me not to fall on me yourselves.” (Judges 15:13) And they spoke to him, saying, “No, but we are certainly going to bind you, and shall give you into their hand but certainly not kill you.” So they bound him with two new ropes and brought him up from the rock. (Judges 15:14) When he came to Leḥi, the Philistines came shouting to meet him. And the Spirit of יהוה came mightily upon him. And the ropes that were on his arms became like flax that is burned with fire, and his bonds broke loose from his hands. (Judges 15:15) And he found a fresh jawbone of a donkey, and put out his hand and took it, and smote a thousand men with it.

It is spoken that with a jawbone of a donkey today (speaking evil with a loose tongue) many are still smitten!

(Judges 15:16) And Shimshon said, “With the jawbone of a donkey, one heap, two heaps, with the jawbone of a donkey I have smitten a thousand men!” (Judges 15:17) And it came to be, when he had ended speaking, that he threw the jawbone from his hand, and called that place Ramath Leḥi. (Judges 15:18) And he became very thirsty, and cried out to יהוה and said, “You have given this great deliverance by the hand of Your servant. And now, am I to die of thirst and fall into the hand of the uncircumcised?” (Judges 15:19) And Elohim split the hollow place that is in Leḥi, and water came out, and he drank. And his spirit came back, and he revived. So he called its name Ěn Haqqore, which is in Leḥi to this day. (Judges 15:20) And he ruled Yisra’ĕl twenty years in the days of the Philistines.
