Shabbat Shalom Loved One! Read the red and believe! - Weekly Torah Study -Now translations available! www.seedtime2harvest.comCheck us out! Offerings and “About Us” information available! We need to overcome WHAT? A Great Earthquake next? Dwarf stars passing close to earth, pole shifts, solar eruptions, magnetic changes in the earth, tidal waves, tsunamis, EMP blasts, nuclear war, suicide bombers, and weather patterns of violent change, wicked gangs, approaching armies and even demonic alien star war types--- surely you jest? Today’s message is for truth searchers only and will never apply to the “religious” or those that have a form of godliness but deny His power. Those who will deny His power actually do believe something. They actually believe they have no need for His supernatural power. They believe a lie! Let’s believe the writings in red that Yahshua spoke and receive His engrafted word and power!

In the beginning (Bereshit- Genesis) was the Word (Yahshua- yes even prior to His earthly flesh body!) (John 1:1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim. (John 1:2) He was in the beginning with Elohim. (John 1:3) All came to be through Him, 1 and without Him, not even one came to be that came to be. Footnote: 1Eph. 3:9, Col. 1:16, Heb. 1:2, Heb. 11:3, 2 Peter 3:5, Ps. 33:6. (John 1:4) In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. (John 1:5) And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

(Deu 30:19) “I have called the heavens and the earth as witnesses today against you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Therefore you shall choose life, so that you live, both you and your seed, (Deu 30:20) to love יהוה your Elohim, to obey His voice, and to cling to Him – for He is your life and the length of your days – to dwell in the land which יהוה swore to your fathers, to Aḇraham, to Yitsḥaq, and to Yaʽaqoḇ, to give them.”

Let’s see if Yahshua says the same thing (Obedience equals love) later in the New Testament: (John 14:15) If you love me, you shall guard my commands.1 Footnote: 1See Ex. 20:6, vv. 21&23, 1 John 5:2-3, 2 John v. 6. (John 14:16) “And I shall ask the Father, and He shall give you another Helper, to stay with you forever – (John 14:17) the Spirit of the Truth, whom the world is unable to receive, because it does not see Him or know Him. But you know Him, for He stays with you and shall be in you. (John 14:18) “I shall not leave you orphans – I am coming to you. (John 14:19) “Yet a little while, and the world no longer sees me, but you shall see me, because I live, and you shall live. (John 14:20) “In that day you shall know that I am in my Father and you in me, and I in you. (John 14:21) He who possesses my commands and guards them, it is he who loves me. And he who loves me shall be loved by my Father, and I shall love him and manifest myself to him.”

Satan (identified as the serpent) is good at his craft: (Gen 3:1) and the serpent was craftier than any beast of the field which יהוה Elohim had made, and he said to the woman, “Is it true that Elohim has said, ‘Do not eat of every tree of the garden’?” Understand this craft enemy of ours comes to kill, steal, and destroy. His plan is to divide and then conquer the weaker members of the flock- exactly like the wolf who attacks the strays! You, your family, your livelihood, your home, your health, your children, grandchildren, friends- (loved ones) your marriage- yes even your very life he is determined to snuff out. What is his diabolical plan? Just like Eve’s deception- he wants to have you doubt the Scriptures and YHWH’s promises by using his storms and attacks to have you agreeing with your own tongue of the vast storm that is confronting you. Remember Yahshua told us that words are spiritual. (John 6:63) "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. Therefore we can establish that words are spirit- some words agree with hell’s plan and guarantee his reward- death. Other words agree with Yahshua and guarantee life and victory. The storm is sent to steal your power (Since Yahshua destroyed all hasatan’s works and he has no power of his own- he must steal your power as power of life and death is in your tongue) (Pro 18:21) Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

You will likely see just the opposite of what you are praying for but hold fast to His word you are praying for. Remember what is seen is temporal or temporary. (2Co 4:13) But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, "I BELIEVED, THEREFORE I SPOKE," we also believe, therefore we also speak, (2Co 4:14) knowing that He who raised Yahshua will raise us also with Yahshua and will present us with you. (2Co 4:15) For all things are for your sakes, so that the grace which is spreading to more and more people may cause the giving of thanks to abound to the glory of YHWH. (2Co 4:16) Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. (2Co 4:17) For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, (2Co 4:18) while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal. What is unseen is eternal because it is Yahshua’s word which will never pass away, because it is eternal. (Mat 24:35) "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

Let’s look quickly at that Scripture, so that we may flee manmade and quite worthless “religion” and walk in His overcoming power. Yahshua’s brother James (Ya’akov) said: (James 1:27) Clean and undefiled (True-pure) religion before the Elohim and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained (unpolluted) from the world. Let’s learn what the Scriptures actually teach and REPENT for ourselves—or soon only wish we had! Before we start our weekly Torah Scriptures I will give you five 10 minute radio programs you may click on- that will help you overcome and walk in His power.

(2Ti 3:1) But know this that in the last days- hard times (perilous) shall come. (2Ti 3:2) For men shall be lovers of self, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, thankless, evil-doers, (2Ti 3:3) unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, haters of good, (2Ti 3:4) betrayers, reckless, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Elohim, (2Ti 3:5) having a form of reverence1 (godliness) but denying its power. Turn away from these! (Have nothing to do with them) Footnote: 1See v. 13, Isa. 24:5-6, Mt. 24:12, Rom. 1:30-31, 2 Thess. 2:3-11. (2Ti 3:6) For among them are those who creep into households and captivate silly women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, (2Ti 3:7) always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Truth searcher- do you have power to stand in the Day of the Lord? Do you have power to pray without ceasing?

Yahshua (Jesus) defines a “believer” way different than most of us have learned from our denominations and various understandings. Would He define you and me as “believers”?

(Mar 16:16) “He, who has believed and has been immersed, shall be saved, but he who has not believed shall be condemned. (Mar 16:17) “And these signs shall accompany the ones who believe: In My Name they shall cast out demons, they shall speak with renewed tongues, (Mar 16:18) they shall take up snakes (authority over demonic realm; see Luke 10:19), and if they drink any deadly drink it shall by no means hurt them, they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall get well (be healed).” (Mar 16:19) Then indeed, after the Master had spoken to them, He was received up into the heaven, and sat down at the right hand of Elohim. (Mar 16:20) And they went out and proclaimed it everywhere, while the Master worked with them, and confirmed the word through the accompanying signs. Amĕn.

This is the power necessary to keep your lamp burning as a wise virgin, as it is power given from heaven. Where does this power come from?

(Act 1:4) Gathering them together, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised, "Which," He said, "you heard of from me; (Act 1:5) for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now." (Act 1:6) So when they had come together, they were asking Him, saying, "Master, is it at this time You are restoring the kingdom to Israel?" (Act 1:7) He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or epochs (Seasons- Feasts-Appointments) which the Father has fixed by His own authority; (Act 1:8) but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth." (Act 2:1) And when the Day of the Festival of Weeks (Shavuot- Pentecost) had come, they were all with one mind in one place. (Act 2:2) And suddenly there came a sound from the heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. (Act 2:3) And there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and settled on each one of them. (Act 2:4) And they were all filled with the Set-apart Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them to speak.

Let’s look at the “oil” (power) of the five virgins who overcame and Yahshua gave the right to sit with Him on His throne as He also overcame; (Rev 3:21) 'He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. (Rev 3:22) 'He, who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.'" (Mat 25:1) Then the reign of the heavens shall be compared to ten maidens (virgins who indicate purity or being born again) who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. (Mat 25:2) “And five of them were wise, and five foolish. (Mat 25:3) “Those who were foolish, having taken their lamps, took no oil with them, (Mat 25:4) but the wise took oil in their containers with their lamps. (Mat 25:5) “Now while the bridegroom took time, they all slumbered and slept. (Mat 25:6) “And at midnight a cry was heard, ‘See, the bridegroom is coming, go out to meet him!’ (Mat 25:7) “Then all those maidens rose up and trimmed their lamps. (Mat 25:8) And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us of your oil, because our lamps are going out.’ (Mat 25:9) “But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, indeed, there would not be enough for us and you. Instead, go to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’ (Mat 25:10) “And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast, and the door was shut. (Mat 25:11) “And later the other maidens also came, saying, ‘Master, Master, open up for us!’ (Mat 25:12) “But he answering, said, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ How do you buy His power? You receive His engrafted word by humbling yourself (it costs you) and yielding your tongue to His power and direction. Like a rudder on a ship and a bridle for a horse, your tongue will be what directs you. James 3:8 but no man is able to tame the tongue. It is unruly, evil, filled with deadly poison. Since the word declares no man can tame his tongue- we should allow our King to direct us by yielding our tongues to Him. (James 3:2) For we all stumble in many matters. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the entire body. (James 3:3) Look, we put bits in the mouths of horses, for them to obey us, and we turn their body. (James 3:4) Look at the ships too: although they are so big and are driven by strong winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot intends. (James 3:5) So too the tongue is a little member, yet boasts greatly. See how a little fire kindles a great forest! (James 3:6) And the tongue is a fire, the world of unrighteousness. Among our members the tongue is set, the one defiling the entire body, and setting on fire the wheel of life, and it is set on fire by Gehenna. I submit for your prayerful consideration, that until you yield your tongue (therefore your direction) you have not made Him Lord and Master over anything!

IF we reject His power the way He has predetermined we must yield to receive (Our tongues-our direction) I believe the intensity of the warfare coming on planet earth next will take us out shortly. We will not accomplish that fruit we were created for sadly because we were created for this time and season. We will fall short of our prophetic destiny and our Creator’s desires for us if we reject this humbling of ourselves. We must consider carefully our response to His invitation to yield ourselves:

Demonic realm defined by Yahshua (Luke 10:19) "Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you.

(Luke 11:9) "So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. (Luke 11:10) "For everyone who asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and to him who knocks, it will be opened. (Luke 11:11) "Now suppose one of you fathers is asked by his son for a fish; he will not give him a snake (demonic realm) instead of a fish, will he? (Luke 11:12) "Or if he is asked for an egg, he will not give him a scorpion, (demonic realm) will he? (Luke 11:13) "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?" (Luke 11:14) And He was casting out a demon, and it was mute; when the demon had gone out, the mute man spoke; and the crowds were amazed. (Luke 11:15) But some of them said, "He casts out demons by Beelzebul, the ruler of the demons." (Luke 11:16) Others, to test Him, were demanding of Him a sign from heaven. (Luke 11:17) But He knew their thoughts and said to them, "Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and a house divided against itself falls.

(Luke 11:18) "If Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? For you say that I cast out demons by Beelzebul. Quick summary; He is reassuring us we will not get an evil spirit if we ask for the Holy spirit by yielding our tongues in faith to Him!

Okay, yielded one to the Most High Elohim, let’s turn our hearts and minds to this week’s Torah!

Here are this week’s Torah Scriptures: Vayera “And He appeared

Genesis 18:1-22:24; 2 Kings 4:1-37; 2 Peter 2:4-11

(Gen 18:1) And יהוה appeared to him by the terebinth trees of Mamrĕ, while he was sitting in the tent door in the heat of the day. (Gen 18:2) So he lifted his eyes and looked, and saw three men standing opposite him. And when he saw them, he ran from the tent door to meet them, and bowed himself to the ground, (Gen 18:3) and said, “יהוה, if I have now found favor in your eyes, please do not pass your servant by. (Gen 18:4) “Please let a little water be brought, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree. (Gen 18:5) “And let me bring a piece of bread and refresh your hearts, and then go on, for this is why you have come to your servant.” And they said, “Do as you have said.” (Gen 18:6) So Aḇraham ran into the tent to Sarah and said, “Hurry, make ready three measures of fine flour, knead it and make cakes.” (Gen 18:7) And Aḇraham ran to the herd, took a tender and good calf, gave it to a young man, and he hurried to prepare it. (Gen 18:8) And he took curds and milk and the calf which he had prepared, and set it before them, and he stood by them under the tree as they ate. (Gen 18:9) And they said to him, “Where is Sarah your wife?” And he said, “See, in the tent.” (Gen 18:10) And He said, “I shall certainly return to you according to the time of life, and see, Sarah your wife is to have a son!” And Sarah was listening in the tent door which was behind him.

Does age matter when we believe YHWH? Note that Abraham set YHWH’s mercy limit.

(Gen 18:11) Now Aḇraham and Sarah were old, well advanced in age, and Sarah was past the way of women. (Gen 18:12) And Sarah laughed within herself, saying, “After I have grown old, shall I have pleasure, my master being old too?” (Gen 18:13) And יהוה said to Aḇraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, saying, ‘Shall I truly have a child, since I am old?’ (Gen 18:14) “Is any matter too hard for יהוה? At the appointed time I am going to return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah is to have a son.” (Gen 18:15) But Sarah denied it, saying, “I did not laugh,” for she was afraid. And He said, “No, but you did laugh!” (Gen 18:16) And the men rose up from there and looked toward Seḏom, and Aḇraham went with them to send them away. (Gen 18:17) And יהוה said, “Shall I hide from Aḇraham what I am doing, (Gen 18:18) since Aḇraham is certainly going to become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? (Gen 18:19) “For I have known him, so that he commands his children and his household after him, to guard the way of יהוה, to do righteousness and right-ruling, so that יהוה brings to Aḇraham what He has spoken to him.” (Gen 18:20) And יהוה said, “Because the outcry against Seḏom and Amorah is great, and because their sin is very heavy, (Gen 18:21) “I am going down now to see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry against it that has come to me, and if not, I know.” (Gen 18:22) So the men turned away from there and went toward Seḏom, but יהוה still stood before Aḇraham. (Gen 18:23) And Aḇraham drew near and said, “Would you also destroy the righteous with the wrong? (Gen 18:24) “Suppose there are fifty righteous within the city, would you also destroy the place and not spare it for the fifty righteous that were in it? (Gen 18:25) “Far be it from you to act in this way, to slay the righteous with the wrong, so that the righteous should be as the wrong. Far be it from you! Does the Judge of the Earth not do righteously?” (Gen 18:26) And יהוה said, “If I find in Seḏom fifty righteous within the city, then I shall spare all the place for their sakes.” (Gen 18:27) And Aḇraham answered and said, “Look, please, I who am but dust and ashes have taken it upon myself to speak to יהוה, (Gen 18:28) “Suppose there are five less than the fifty righteous, would You destroy all of the city for lack of five?” And He said, “If I find there forty-five, I do not destroy it.” (Gen 18:29) And he spoke to Him yet again and said, “Suppose there are found forty?” And He said, “I would not do it for the sake of forty.” (Gen 18:30) And he said, “Let not יהוה be displeased, and let me speak: Suppose there are found thirty?” And He said, “I would not do it if I find thirty there.” (Gen 18:31) And he said, “Look, please, I have taken it upon myself to speak to יהוה: Suppose there are found twenty?” And He said, “I would not destroy it for the sake of twenty.” (Gen 18:32) And he said, “Let not יהוה be displeased, and let me speak only this time: Suppose there are found ten?” And He said, “I would not destroy it for the sake of ten.” (Gen 18:33) Then יהוה went away as soon as He had ended speaking to Aḇraham. And Aḇraham returned to his place.

Remember true and pure religion is to help widows and orphans and keep yourself from pollution of the world’s wickedness—note what Lot now considered okay (giving his daughters to wicked men of perversion) while mingling with the wicked culture of Sodom!

(Gen 19:1) And the two messengers came to Seḏom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Seḏom. And when Lot saw them, he rose up to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground, (Gen 19:2) and he said, “Look, please my masters, please turn in to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet, and rise early and go your way.” And they said, “No, but let us spend the night in the open square.” (Gen 19:3) But he urged them strongly, and they turned in to him and came into his house. And he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. (Gen 19:4) Before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Seḏom, both old and young, all the people from every part surrounded the house. (Gen 19:5) And they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, and let us ‘know’ them.” (Gen 19:6) So Lot went out to them through the doorway, and shut the door behind him, (Gen 19:7) and said, “Please, my brothers, do not do evil! (Gen 19:8) Look, please, I have two daughters who have not known a man. Please, let me bring them out to you, and do to them as you wish, only do no deed to these men, because they have come under the shadow of my roof.” (Gen 19:9) But they said, “Stand back!” And they said, “This one came in to sojourn, and should he always judge? Now we are going to treat you worse than them.” So they pressed hard against the man Lot, and came near to break down the door. (Gen 19:10) But the men reached out their hands and pulled Lot into the house with them, and shut the door. (Gen 19:11) Then they struck the men who were at the doorway of the house with blindness, both small and great, and they wearied themselves to find the door. (Gen 19:12) And the men said to Lot, “Have you anyone else here? A son-in-law, and your sons, and your daughters, and whomever you have in the city – bring them out of this place! (Gen 19:13) “We are going to destroy this place, because the cry against them has grown great before the face of יהוה, and יהוה has sent us to destroy it.” (Gen 19:14) And Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who had married his daughters, and said, “Get up, get out of this place, for יהוה is going to destroy this city!” But to his sons-in-law he seemed to be as one joking. (Gen 19:15) And when morning dawned, the messengers urged Lot to hurry, saying, “Get up, and take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the punishment of the city.” (Gen 19:16) And while he loitered, the men took hold of his hand, and his wife’s hand, and the hands of his two daughters, יהוה having compassion on him, and they brought him out and set him outside the city. (Gen 19:17) And it came to be, when they had brought them outside, that he said, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be consumed.” (Gen 19:18) And Lot said to them, “Oh no, יהוה! (Gen 19:19) “Look, please, your servant has found favor in your eyes, and you have increased your kindness which you have shown me by saving my life, but I am unable to escape to the mountains, lest calamity overtakes me and I die. (Gen 19:20) “Look, please, this city is near enough to flee to, and it is small. Please let me escape there – is it not a small matter – and let my life be saved?” (Gen 19:21) And He said to him, “Look, I have favored you concerning this matter also, without overthrowing this city for which you have spoken. (Gen 19:22) “Hurry, escape there; I am not able to do any deed until you arrive there.” So the name of the city was called Tsoʽar. (Gen 19:23) The sun had risen upon the earth when Lot entered Tsoʽar. (Gen 19:24) And יהוה rained sulphur and fire on Seḏom and Amorah, from יהוה out of the heavens. (Gen 19:25) So He overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground.

Many scholars believe this turning back is a Hebrew idiom for going back- she went back to what she knew and was comfortable with and perished!

(Gen 19:26) But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a post of salt. (Gen 19:27) And Aḇraham arose early in the morning and went to the place where he had stood before יהוה, (Gen 19:28) and he looked toward Seḏom and Amorah, and toward all the land of the plain. And he looked and saw the smoke of the land which went up like the smoke of a furnace. (Gen 19:29) Thus it came to be, when Elohim destroyed the cities of the plain, that Elohim remembered Aḇraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities in which Lot had dwelt. (Gen 19:30) And Lot went up out of Tsoʽar and dwelt in the mountains, and his two daughters were with him, for he was afraid to dwell in Tsoʽar. And he and his two daughters dwelt in a cave. (Gen 19:31) And the first-born said to the younger, “Our father is old, and there is no man on the earth to come in to us, as is the way of all the earth. (Gen 19:32) “Come, let us make our father drink wine and lie with him, so that we preserve the seed of our father.” (Gen 19:33) So they made their father drink wine that night. And the first-born went in and lay with her father, and he was not aware of it when she lay down or when she arose. (Gen 19:34) And it came to be on the next day that the first-born said to the younger, “See, I lay with my father last night. Let us make him drink wine tonight as well, and you go in and lie with him, so that we keep the seed of our father.” (Gen 19:35) So they made their father drink wine that night as well. And the younger arose and lay with him, and he was not aware of it when she lay down or when she arose. (Gen 19:36) Thus both the daughters of Lot became pregnant by their father. (Gen 19:37) And the first-born bore a son and called his name Mo’aḇ, he is the father of the Mo’aḇites to this day. (Gen 19:38) And the younger, she also bore a son and called his name Ben-Ammi, he is the father of the children of Ammon to this day.

YHWH will surely protect us and our loved ones against wicked powerful Kings! (Psa 18:2) יהוה is my rock and my stronghold and my deliverer; My Ěl is my rock, I take refuge in Him; my shield and the horn of my deliverance, my high tower. (Psa 18:3) I call upon יהוה, the One to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.

(Gen 20:1) And Aḇraham set out from there to the land of the South, and dwelt between Qaḏĕsh and Shur, and stayed in Gerar. (Gen 20:2) And Aḇraham said concerning Sarah his wife, “She is my sister.” And Aḇimeleḵ sovereign of Gerar sent and took Sarah. (Gen 20:3) But Elohim came to Aḇimeleḵ in a dream by night, and said to him, “See, you are a dead man because of the woman whom you have taken, for she is a man’s wife.” (Gen 20:4) However, Aḇimeleḵ had not come near her, and he said, “יהוה, would you slay a righteous nation also? (Gen 20:5) “Did he not say to me, ‘She is my sister’? And she, even she herself said, ‘He is my brother.’ In the integrity of my heart and in the innocence of my hands I have done this.” (Gen 20:6) And Elohim said to him in a dream, “Yea, I know that you did this in the integrity of your heart, and so I kept you from sinning against me. For this reason I did not let you touch her. (Gen 20:7) “And now, return the man’s wife, for he is a prophet, and let him pray for you and you live. But if you do not return her, know that you shall certainly die, you and all that are yours.” (Gen 20:8) So Aḇimeleḵ rose early in the morning, and called all his servants, and spoke all these words in their hearing. And the men were greatly frightened. (Gen 20:9) And Aḇimeleḵ called Aḇraham and said to him, “What have you done to us? In what have I sinned against you that you have brought on me and on my reign a great sin? You have done matters to me that should not be done.” (Gen 20:10) And Aḇimeleḵ said to Aḇraham, “What did you have in view, that you have done this matter?” (Gen 20:11) And Aḇraham said, “Only because I said to myself, the fear of Elohim is not in this place, and they shall kill me for the sake of my wife. (Gen 20:12) “And yet, she is truly my sister. She is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother, and she became my wife. (Gen 20:13) “And it came to be, when Elohim caused me to wander from my father’s house that I said to her, ‘this is your kindness that you should do for me: in every place, wherever we go, say of me, “He is my brother.” ’ ” (Gen 20:14) Then Aḇimeleḵ took sheep, and cattle, and male and female servants, and gave them to Aḇraham. And he returned Sarah his wife to him. (Gen 20:15) And Aḇimeleḵ said, “See, my land is before you, dwell wherever it is good in your eyes.” (Gen 20:16) And to Sarah he said, “See, I have given your brother a thousand pieces of silver. See, it is to you a covering of eyes before all who are with you and before all others, and you are cleared before everyone.” (Gen 20:17) And Aḇraham prayed to Elohim, and Elohim healed Aḇimeleḵ, and his wife, and his female servants, so they bore children, (Gen 20:18) for יהוה had closed up all the wombs of the house of Aḇimeleḵ because of Sarah, Aḇraham’s wife.

Speak agreement with the King of Glory and produce fruit that remains!

(Gen 21:1) And יהוה visited Sarah as He had said, and יהוה did for Sarah as He had spoken. (Gen 21:2) So Sarah conceived and bore Aḇraham a son in his old age, at the appointed time of which Elohim had spoken to him. (Gen 21:3) And Aḇraham called the name of his son who was born to him, whom Sarah bore to him Yitsḥaq. (Gen 21:4) And Aḇraham circumcised his son Yitsḥaq when he was eight days old, as Elohim had commanded him. (Gen 21:5) And Aḇraham was one hundred years old when his son Yitsḥaq was born to him. (Gen 21:6) And Sarah said, “Elohim has made me laugh, and everyone who hears of it laughs with me.” (Gen 21:7) And she said, “Who would have said to Aḇraham that Sarah would nurse children? I have borne him a son in his old age.” (Gen 21:8) And the child grew and was weaned, and Aḇraham made a great feast on the day that Yitsḥaq was weaned. (Gen 21:9) And Sarah saw the son of Haḡar the Mitsrite, whom she had borne to Aḇraham, mocking. (Gen 21:10) So she said to Aḇraham, “Drive out this female servant and her son, for the son of this female servant shall not inherit with my son, with Yitsḥaq.” (Gen 21:11) And the matter was very evil in the eyes of Aḇraham because of his son. (Gen 21:12) But Elohim said to Aḇraham, “Let it not be evil in your eyes because of the boy and because of your female servant. Whatever Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice, for in Yitsḥaq your seed is called. (Gen 21:13) “And of the son of the female servant I also make a nation, because he is your seed.” (Gen 21:14) And Aḇraham rose early in the morning, and took bread and a skin of water, which he gave to Haḡar, putting it on her shoulder, also the boy, and sent her away. And she left and wandered in the Wilderness of Be’ĕrsheḇa. (Gen 21:15) and the water in the skin was used up, and she placed the boy under one of the shrubs. (Gen 21:16) And she went and sat down about a bowshot away, for she said, “Let me not see the death of the boy.” And she sat opposite him, and lifted her voice and wept. (Gen 21:17) And Elohim heard the voice of the boy, and the messenger of Elohim called to Haḡar from the heavens, and said to her, “What is the matter with you, Haḡar? Do not fear, for Elohim has heard the voice of the boy where he is. (Gen 21:18) “Arise, lift up the boy and hold him with your hand, for I make a great nation of him.” (Gen 21:19) And Elohim opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water. And she went and filled the skin with water, and gave the boy a drink. (Gen 21:20) And Elohim was with the boy, and he grew and dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer. (Gen 21:21) And he dwelt in the Wilderness of Paran, and his mother took a wife for him from the land of Mitsrayim. (Gen 21:22) And it came to be at that time that Aḇimeleḵ and Piḵol, the commander of his army, spoke to Aḇraham, saying, “Elohim is with you in all that you do. (Gen 21:23) “And now, swear to me by Elohim, not to be untrue to me, to my offspring, or to my descendants. Do to me according to the kindness that I have done to you and to the land in which you have dwelt.” (Gen 21:24) And Aḇraham said, “I swear.” (Gen 21:25) And Aḇraham reproved Aḇimeleḵ because of a well of water which Aḇimeleḵ’s servants had seized. (Gen 21:26) And Aḇimeleḵ said, “I do not know who has done this deed. Neither did you inform me, nor did I hear until today.” (Gen 21:27) So Aḇraham took sheep and cattle and gave them to Aḇimeleḵ, and the two of them made a covenant. (Gen 21:28) And Aḇraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves. (Gen 21:29) And Aḇimeleḵ asked Aḇraham, “What are these seven ewe lambs which you have set by themselves?” (Gen 21:30) And he said, “Take these seven ewe lambs from my hand, to be my witness that I have dug this well.” (Gen 21:31) So he called that place Be’ĕrsheḇa, because the two of them swore an oath there. (Gen 21:32) Thus they made a covenant at Be’ĕrsheḇa. And Aḇimeleḵ raised with Piḵol, the commander of his army, and they returned to the land of the Philistines. (Gen 21:33) And he planted a tamarisk tree in Be’ĕrsheḇa, and there called on the Name of יהוה, the Everlasting Ěl. (Gen 21:34) And Aḇraham sojourned in the land of the Philistines many days.

Trust YHWH with our children!

(Gen 22:1) And it came to be after these events that Elohim tried Aḇraham, and said to him, “Aḇraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” (Gen 22:2) And He said, “Take your son, now, your only son Yitsḥaq, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriyah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I command you.” (Gen 22:3) And Aḇraham rose early in the morning and saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and Yitsḥaq his son. And he split the wood for the burnt offering, and arose and went to the place which Elohim had commanded him. (Gen 22:4) And on the third day Aḇraham lifted his eyes and saw the place from a distance. (Gen 22:5) So Aḇraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey while the boy and I go over there and worship, and come back to you.” (Gen 22:6) And Aḇraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Yitsḥaq his son. And he took the fire in his hand, and a knife, and the two of them went together. (Gen 22:7) And Yitsḥaq spoke to Aḇraham his father and said, “My father!” And he said, “Here I am, my son.” And he said, “See, the fire and the wood! But where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” (Gen 22:8) And Aḇraham said, “My son, Elohim does provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.” And the two of them went together. (Gen 22:9) And they came to the place which Elohim had commanded him, and Aḇraham built an altar there and placed the wood in order. And he bound Yitsḥaq his son and laid him on the altar, upon the wood. (Gen 22:10) And Aḇraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son, (Gen 22:11) but the Messenger (Angel- Yahshua?) of יהוה called to him from the heavens and said, “Aḇraham, Aḇraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” (Gen 22:12) And He said, “Do not lay your hand on the boy, nor touch him. For now I know that you fear Elohim, seeing you have not withheld your son, your only son, from me.” (Gen 22:13) And Aḇraham lifted his eyes and looked and saw behind him a ram caught in a bush by its horns, and Aḇraham went and took the ram and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son. (Gen 22:14) And Aḇraham called the name of the place, ‘יהוה Yireh (Provider or literally provision seen),’ as it is said to this day, “On the mountain יהוה provides.” (Gen 22:15) And the Messenger (Angel- Yahshua?) of יהוה called to Aḇraham a second time from the heavens, (Gen 22:16) and said, “By myself I have sworn, declares יהוה, because you have done this, and have not withheld your son, your only son, (Gen 22:17) that I shall certainly bless you, and I shall certainly increase your seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand which is on the seashore, and let your seed possess the gate of their enemies. (Gen 22:18) “And in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed my voice.” (Gen 22:19) Then Aḇraham returned to his young men, and they rose up and went together to Be’ĕrsheḇa. And Aḇraham dwelt at Be’ĕrsheḇa. (Gen 22:20) And it came to be after these events that it was reported to Aḇraham, saying, “See, Milkah too has borne children to your brother Naḥor: (Gen 22:21) “Uts his first-born, and Buz his brother, and Qemu’ĕl the father of Aram, (Gen 22:22) and Keseḏ, and Ḥazo, and Pildash, and Yiḏlaph, and Bethu’ĕl.” (Gen 22:23) And Bethu’ĕl brought forth Riḇqah. These eight Milkah bore to Naḥor, Aḇraham’s brother. (Gen 22:24) His concubine whose name was Re’uwmah, also bore Teḇaḥ, and Gaḥam, and Taḥash, and Maʽaḵah.

Miracles like these will be normal as we draw ever close to our coming King in the Days of Jacob’s Trouble.

(2Ki 4:1) A certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets cried out to Elisha, saying, “Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that your servant feared יהוה. And the lender has come to take my two sons to be his slaves.” (2Ki 4:2) And Elisha said to her, “What should I do for you? Inform me, what do you have in the house?” And she said, “Your female servant has none at all in the house except a pot of oil.” (2Ki 4:3) And he said, “Go, borrow vessels from everywhere, from all your neighbors, empty vessels, do not get a few. (2Ki 4:4) “And when you have come in, you shall shut the door behind you and your sons. Then pour it into all those vessels, and set aside the filled ones.” (2Ki 4:5) So she went from him and shut the door behind her and her sons, who brought the vessels to her, and she poured it out. (2Ki 4:6) And it came to be, when the vessels were filled, that she said to her son, “Bring me another vessel.” But he said to her, “There is not another vessel.” And the oil ceased. (2Ki 4:7) So she went and informed the man of Elohim, and he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debt. And you and your sons live on the rest.” (2Ki 4:8) And it came to be on a day that Elisha went to Shunĕm, where there was a prominent woman, and she urged him to eat some food. And it came to be, as often as he passed by, that he turned in there to eat some food. (2Ki 4:9) And she said to her husband, “Look, I know that this is a set-apart man of Elohim, who passes by us continually. (2Ki 4:10) “Please, let us make a small upper room on the wall, and let us put a bed for him there, and a table and a chair and a lampstand. And it shall be, whenever he comes to us, let him turn in there.” (2Ki 4:11) And it came to be on a day that he came there, and he turned in to the upper room and lay down there. (2Ki 4:12) And he said to Gĕḥazi his servant, “Call this Shunammite woman.” So he called her, and she stood before him. (2Ki 4:13) And he said to him, “Please say to her, ‘Look, you have gone to all this trouble for us. What is there to be done for you? Should I speak on your behalf to the sovereign or to the commander of the army?’ ” And she answered, “I am dwelling among my own people.” (2Ki 4:14) And he said, “What then is to be done for her?” And Gĕḥazi answered, “Well, she has no son, and her husband is old.” (2Ki 4:15) And he said, “Call her.” So he called her, and she stood in the doorway. (2Ki 4:16) And he said, “About this time next year you shall embrace a son.” And she said, “No, my master, man of Elohim, do not lie to your female servant!” (2Ki 4:17) And the woman conceived, and bore a son when the appointed time had come, of which Elisha had spoken to her. (2Ki 4:18) And the child grew. And it came to be on a day that he went out to his father, to the reapers, (2Ki 4:19) and he said to his father, “My head, my head!” And he said to a servant, “Take him to his mother.” (2Ki 4:20) So he took him and brought him to his mother, and he sat on her knees till noon, and died. (2Ki 4:21) And she went up and laid him on the bed of the man of Elohim, and shut the door on him, and went out. (2Ki 4:22) And she called to her husband, and said, “Please send me one of the young men and one of the donkeys, so that I hurry to the man of Elohim and return.” (2Ki 4:23) And he said, “Why are you going to him today? It is neither the New Moon nor the Sabbath.” And she said, “It is well!” (2Ki 4:24) And she saddled the donkey and said to her servant, “Drive and go, do not slow down, except I speak to you.” (2Ki 4:25) And she went, and came to the man of Elohim at Mount Karmel. And it came to be, when the man of Elohim saw her at a distance, that he said to his servant Gĕḥazi, “See, the Shunammite woman. (2Ki 4:26) “Please run now to meet her, and say to her, ‘Is it well with you? Is it well with your husband? Is it well with the child?’ ” And she answered, “It is well.” (2Ki 4:27) And she came to the man of Elohim at the hill, and she caught him by the feet, but Gĕḥazi came near to push her away. But the man of Elohim said, “Leave her alone, for her being is bitter in her, and יהוה has hidden it from me, and has not revealed it to me.” (2Ki 4:28) And she said, “Did I ask a son of my master? Did I not say, ‘Do not deceive me’?” (2Ki 4:29) And he said to Gĕḥazi, “Gird up your loins, and take my staff in your hand, and go. When you meet anyone, do not greet him, and when anyone greets you, do not answer him. And you shall lay my staff on the face of the child.” (2Ki 4:30) And the mother of the child said, “As יהוה lives, and as your being lives, I do not leave you.” And he rose and followed her. (2Ki 4:31) And Gĕḥazi went on ahead of them, and laid the staff on the face of the child. But there was no voice and there was no hearing, so he went back to meet him, and reported to him, saying, “The child has not awakened.” (2Ki 4:32) And Elisha came into the house and saw the child was dead, lying on his bed, (2Ki 4:33) and he went in, and shut the door behind the two of them, and prayed to יהוה. (2Ki 4:34) And he went up and lay on the child, and put his mouth on his mouth, and his eyes on his eyes, and his hands on his hands, and stretched himself out on the child, and the flesh of the child became warm. (2Ki 4:35) And he returned and walked back and forth in the house, then went up and stretched himself out on him. And the child sneezed seven times, and the child opened his eyes. (2Ki 4:36) And he called Gĕḥazi and said, “Call this Shunammite.” So he called her. And she came in to him, and he said, “Pick up your son.” (2Ki 4:37) Then she went in and fell at his feet, and bowed herself to the ground, and picked up her son and went out.

(2Pe 2:4) For if Elohim did not spare the messengers (Angels) who sinned, but sent them to Tartaros, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be kept for judgment, (2Pe 2:5) and did not spare the world of old, but preserved Noaḥ, a proclaimer of righteousness, and seven others, bringing in the flood on the world of the wicked, (2Pe 2:6) and having reduced to ashes the cities of Seḏom and Amorah condemned them to destruction – having made them an example to those who afterward would live wickedly, (2Pe 2:7) and rescued righteous Lot, who was oppressed with the indecent behavior of the lawless1 Footnote: 1The Greek word here, and in 3:17, is athesmos (not the usual one, anomos) but it also means “lawless.” (2Pe 2:8) (for day after day that righteous man, dwelling among them, tortured his righteous being by seeing and hearing their lawless works), (2Pe 2:9) then יהוה knows how to rescue the reverent ones from trial and to keep the unrighteous unto the day of judgment, to be punished, (2Pe 2:10) and most of all those walking after the flesh in filthy lust and despising authority – bold, headstrong, speaking evil of esteemed ones, (2Pe 2:11) whereas messengers (Angels) who are greater in strength and power do not bring a slanderous accusation against them before the Master.

Loved One, really believing and doing (faith-trust) is the ONLY way we are delivered from every scheme of hell and hasatan’s hordes! We are not delivered (saved, healed and made whole) by actions or deed only; but actions and deeds will accompany those that really believe what Yahshua says here. Please take note that in John 14:15 below that guarding or keeping His commands is prior to receiving the power of His Spirit! Just like this second witness says: (Act 5:30) “The Elohim of our fathers rose up יהושע whom you laid hands on, hanging Him on a timber. (Act 5:31) “Him, a Prince and a Savior, Elohim has exalted to His right hand, to give repentance to Yisra’ĕl and forgiveness of sins. (Act 5:32) “And we are His witnesses to these matters, and so also is the Set-apart Spirit whom Elohim has given to those who obey Him.”1 Footnote: 1See 1 John 3:24. Understand that if you are obedient you have His Holy Set Apart Spirit- don’t allow hasatan to cheat you out of your prayer language in unknown tongues!

(John 14:11) “Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father in me, otherwise believe me because of the works themselves. (John 14:12) Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me, the works that I do he shall do also. And greater works than these he shall do, because I go to my Father. (John 14:13) Whatever you ask in my Name: that I shall do; in order that the Father might be esteemed in the Son. (John 14:14) “If you ask whatever in my Name, I shall do it. (John 14:15) If you love me, you shall guard my commands.1 Footnote: 1See Ex. 20:6, vv. 21&23, 1 John 5:2-3, 2 John v. 6. (John 14:16) “And I shall ask the Father, and He shall give you another Helper, to stay with you forever – (John 14:17) the Spirit of the Truth, whom the world is unable to receive, because it does not see Him or know Him. But you know Him, for He stays with you and shall be in you. (John 14:18) “I shall not leave you orphans – I am coming to you. (John 14:19) “Yet a little while, and the world no longer sees me, but you shall see me, because I live, and you shall live. (John 14:20) “In that day you shall know that I am in my Father and you in me, and I in you. (John 14:21) He who possesses my commands and guards (keeps-obeys-actions) them, it is he who loves me. And he who loves me shall be loved by my Father, and I shall love him and manifest myself to him.”

(Jas 2:19) You believe that Elohim is one. You do well. The demons also believe – and shudder! (Jas 2:20) But do you wish to know, O foolish man, that the belief without the works is dead? (Jas 2:21) Was not Aḇraham our father declared right by works when he offered Yitsḥaq his son on the altar? (Jas 2:22) Do you see that the belief was working with his works, and by the works the belief was perfected? (Jas 2:23) And the Scripture was filled which says, “Aḇraham believed Elohim, and it was reckoned to him for righteousness.” And he was called, “Elohim’s friend.” (Jas 2:24) You see, then, that a man is declared right by works, and not by belief alone. (Jas 2:25) In the same way, was not Raḥaḇ the whore also declared right by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way? (Jas 2:26) For as the body without the spirit is dead, so also the belief (faith- action) (Jas 2:19) you believe that Elohim is one. You do well. The demons also believe – and shudder! Thanks so much for your prayers for us loved ones; they are cherished and much appreciated. May YHWH direct your path! Remember no matter what storms you are facing our Master Yahshua has already overcome for you! (John 16:33) "These things I have spoken to you, so that in me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world." You too will overcome as He is allowed to empower you! FEAR NOT!

Shalom to your home loved one,
