Loved One- it is becoming clear that Jacob’s Trouble (Not the Jews only trouble-ALL Israel- even us who claim being grafted in) is approaching all living on the earth. What is it that you and I desire to accomplish in our short time here on Planet Earth? Is it fame, wealth, pleasure, more toys and “stuff” or possibly something more lasting…say eternal? What is worthy of our life’s mission and accomplishment? Will we allow our lives to be broken and changed into His image by our own choice or will we soon be pulverized and destroyed leaving nothing- all our worldly accomplishments burned up leaving nothing but ash? Mat 21:44 “And he who falls on this stone (The Word- Yahshua) shall be broken, 1 but on whomever it falls, he shall be pulverized.” Footnote: 1Rom. 8:10 & 13, Col. 3:5. (Deuteronomy 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, (Deuteronomy 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.”

What else does Yahshua say about these matters and times? (Luke 21:11) And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:12) But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake. (Luke 21:13) And it shall turn to you for a testimony. (Luke 21:14) Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what you shall answer: (Luke 21:15) I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. (Luke 21:16) And you shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. (Luke 21:17) And you shall be hated of all men for my name's sake. (Luke 21:18) But there shall not a hair of your head perish. (Luke 21:19) In your patience possess you your souls. (Luke 21:20) And when you shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, and then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. (Luke 21:21) Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter there. (Luke 21:22) For these are the Days of Vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. (Luke 21:23) But woes unto them that are with child and to them that give suck, in those days! There shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. (Luke 21:24) And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles (Goyim-heathen), until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. (Luke 21:25) And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:26) Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. (Luke 21:27) And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. (Luke 21:28) And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws nigh. (Luke 21:29) And he spoke to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; (Luke 21:30) When they now shoot forth, you see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. (Luke 21:31) So likewise you, when you see these things come to pass, know you that the Kingdom of YHWH is nigh at hand. (Luke 21:32) Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass away, till all is fulfilled. (What generation? The generation that sees these things start and then come to pass!) (Luke 21:33) Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. (Luke 21:34) And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. (Luke 21:35) As a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. (Luke 21:36) You watch you therefore and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Of course the goal would be to stand unashamed before Yahshua having produced fruit that will remain!

Our Words direct us! Start today hiding the Word of YHWH in your heart-memorize some Scripture daily!

(Mat 12:30) “He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters abroad. (Mat 12:31) “Because of this I say to you, all sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven men. (Mat 12:32) “And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Aḏam, it shall be forgiven him, but whoever speaks against the Set-apart Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come. (Mat 12:32) “And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Aḏam, it shall be forgiven him, but whoever speaks against the Set-apart Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come. (Mat 12:33) “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree rotten and its fruit rotten, for a tree is known by its fruit. (Mat 12:34) “You brood of adders! How are you able to speak what is good – being wicked? For the mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart. (Mat 12:35) “The good man brings forth what is good from the good treasures of his heart, and the wicked man brings forth what is wicked from the wicked treasure. (Mat 12:36) “And I say to you that for every idle (careless) word men speak, they shall give an account of it in the Day of Judgment. (Mat 12:37) For by your words you shall be declared righteous, and by your words you shall be declared unrighteous (condemned).”

If no man (male or female) can tame the tongue, which yields our direction similar to a bridle on a horse or a rudder on a ship; how then can our tongue be tamed? Too many “teachers” putting down others and building their own kingdoms- which of course will be burned with fire!

(Jas 3:1) Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, knowing that we shall receive greater judgment. (Jas 3:2) For we all stumble in many matters. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect (mature) man, able also to bridle the entire body. (Jas 3:3) Look, we put bits in the mouths of horses, for them to obey us, and we turn their body. (Jas 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. (Jas 3:5) So too the tongue is a little member, yet boasts greatly. See how a little fire kindles a great forest! (Jas 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. (Jas 3:7) For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. (Jas 3:8) But no man is able to tame the tongue. It is unruly, evil, filled with deadly poison. (Jas 3:9) With it we bless our Elohim and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of Elohim. (Jas 3:10) Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brothers, this should not be so. (Jas 3:11) Does the fountain send forth the sweet and the bitter from the same opening? (Jas 3:12) My brothers, is a fig tree able to bear olives, or a grapevine figs? Neither is a fountain able to make salt and sweet water. (Jas 3:13) Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by his good behavior his works in meekness of wisdom. (Jas 3:14) But if you have bitter jealousy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast against and lie against the truth. (Jas 3:15) This is not the wisdom coming down from above, but it is earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. (Jas 3:16) For where jealousy and self-seeking are, there is confusion and every foul deed. (Jas 3:17) But the wisdom from above is first clean, then peaceable, gentle, ready to obey, filled with compassion and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.

Yahshua is the Baptizer in the Holy- Set Apart Spirit and Fire and The Righteous Judge with the axe!

(Mat 3:10) “And the axe is already laid to the root of the trees. Every tree, then, which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. (Mat 3:11) “I indeed immerse (baptize) you in water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to bear. He shall immerse (baptize) you in the Set-apart Spirit and fire.

If no man can tame his tongue; then it would seem obvious that only...Only…ONLY by us yielding our tongues to Yahshua will they be tamed and directed! That is why He warned us: (Luke 11:11) “And what father among you whose son asks for bread shall give him a stone, or if he asks for a fish shall give him a snake instead of a fish, (Luke 11:12) or if he asks for an egg shall give him a scorpion? (Comment: snakes and scorpions are indicative of the demonic realm He gave us power over in Luke 10:19) (Luke 11:13) “If you then, being wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Father from heaven give the Set-apart Spirit (Holy Spirit) to those asking Him!” What Yahshua is hinting and teaching about is that we will need to trust Him and receive His Spirit baptism and yes, thank YHWH, a prayer language in unknown tongues that no man understands as we offer mysteries (questions) that YHWH alone understands. (1Co 14:2) For he that speaks in an unknown tongue speaks not unto men, but unto YHWH: for no man understands him; howbeit in the spirit he speaks mysteries. (1Co 14:14) For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful. (1Co 14:15) What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.

Summarizing: YHWH knew we could produce no fruit that would remain. (John 15:5) I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing. (John 15:6) If a man abides not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. (John 15:7) If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done unto you. (John 15:8) Herein is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; so shall you be my disciples. (John 15:9) As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue you in my love. (John 15:10) If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in His love. John 15:16 You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. Knowing that we will produce no fruit that remains on our own, He provided a method for us to walk in His power and His Spirit- He only requires that we trust Him and yield our tongues (Direction like a bridle on a horse or a rudder on a ship) (Act 1:8) But you shall receive power, after that the Set Apart Spirit (Holy Spirit) is come upon you: and you shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Then immediately after this they all received a prayer language in Acts 2:4! Listen Loved One, do not think you or I will produce ANY fruit that will remain apart from His Holy Spirit directing you- don’t be prideful. Submit (Humble ourselves) to YHWH and the devil will flee- If we don’t submit our tongues; hasatan will continue to dominate us. Hint: they spoke as the Spirit gave utterance- you will have to open your mouth to speak if or most likely when- you ask Yahshua to give you a supernatural prayer language and baptize you in His Spirit. Since you are already one of the 10 virgins (born again spiritually) seems natural intelligence to become of the 5 virgins who have enough oil (power) to enter the Wedding Feast. Yield and hunger for His help and righteousness TODAY while He may be found and watch the devil flee as you are FILLED! Whoever hungers and thirsts for righteousness WILL BE FILLED! Get HUNGRY for Him!

Here’s the picture warning from Yahshua of us last day’s Assembly of believers!

(Rev 3:14) “And to the messenger of the assembly in Laodicea write, ‘The Amĕn, the Trustworthy and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of Elohim, 1 says this: Footnote: 1Col. 1:15, Heb. 1:6. (Rev 3:15) I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I would that you were cold or hot. (Rev 3:16) “So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I am going to vomit you out of my mouth. (Rev 3:17) “Because you say, ‘Rich I am, and I am made rich, and need none at all,’ and do not know that you are wretched, and pitiable, and poor, and blind, and naked. (Rev 3:18) “I advise you to buy from me gold refined (Comment- faith and trust comes through fiery trials) in the fire, 1 so that you become rich; and white garments, so that you become dressed, so that the shame of your nakedness might not be shown; and anoint your eyes with ointment, so that you see. (Most of us have been blinded by the god of this world and are taken captive to do his will; yielding our free will to hasatan due to our own disobedience of His commands- Torah- Instructions- which 1 John defines as SIN!) Footnote: 1Ps. 19:10, Ps. 119:72 & 127, Prov. 30:5. (Rev 3:19) “As many as I love, I reprove and discipline. So be ardent and repent. (Rev 3:20) “See, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I shall come in to him and dine with him, and he with me. (Rev 3:21) To him who overcomes (Comment: the fellowship is only available to him who overcomes!) I shall give to sit 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.” ’ ” With understanding our need for the Helper and Comforter He has made available if we so choose to humble ourselves and our tongues and be the 5 virgins with power and provision (oil of His spirit); we turn to this week’s Torah portion- Shalom!

Here are this week’s Torah Scriptures: BO “Enter-Go- Come

Exodus 10:1-13:16; Jeremiah 46:13-28; 1 Corinthians 11:2o-34;

Mark Chapter 7

(Exodus 10:1) And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Go in to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the hearts of his servants, so that I show these signs of mine before him, (Exodus 10:2) and that you relate in the hearing of your son and your son’s son what I have done in Mitsrayim, and my signs which I have done among them. And you shall know that I am יהוה.” (Exodus 10:3) And Mosheh and Aharon came in to Pharaoh and said to him, “Thus said יהוה Elohim of the Heḇrews, ‘till when shall you refuse to humble yourself before me? Let my people go, so that they serve (Worship) me. (Exodus 10:4) ‘Or else, if you refuse to let my people go, see, tomorrow I am bringing locusts within your borders. (Exodus 10:5) ‘And they shall cover the surface of the land, so that no one is able to see the land. And they shall eat the rest of what has escaped, which remains to you from the hail, and they shall eat every tree which grows up for you out of the field. (Exodus 10:6) ‘And they shall fill your houses, and the houses of all your servants, and the houses of all the Mitsrites, which neither your fathers nor your fathers’ fathers have seen, since the day that they were on the earth to this day.’ ” Then he turned and went out from Pharaoh. (Exodus 10:7) And Pharaoh’s servants said to him, “Till when would this one be a snare to us? Let the men go, so that they serve יהוה their Elohim. Do you not yet know that Mitsrayim is destroyed?” (Exodus 10:8) And Mosheh and Aharon were brought back to Pharaoh, and he said to them, “Go, serve יהוה your Elohim. Who are the ones that are going?” (Exodus 10:9) And Mosheh said, “We are going with our young and our old, with our sons and our daughters, with our flocks and our herds we are going, for we have a festival to יהוה.” (Exodus 10:10) And he said to them, “let יהוה be with you as I let you and your little ones go! Watch, for evil is before your face! (Exodus 10:11) “Not so! You men go now, and serve יהוה, for that is what you desired.” And they were driven out from the presence of Pharaoh. (Exodus 10:12) And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Stretch out your hand over the land of Mitsrayim for the locusts to come upon the land of Mitsrayim, and eat every plant of the land – all that the hail has left.” (Exodus 10:13) And Mosheh stretched out his rod over the land of Mitsrayim, and יהוה brought an east wind on the land all that day and all that night. Morning came, and the east wind brought the locusts. (Exodus 10:14) And the locusts went up over all the land of Mitsrayim and settled within all the borders of Mitsrayim, very grievous. There had never been locusts like them before, nor would there again be like them. (Exodus 10:15) And they covered the surface of all the land, so that the land was darkened. And they ate every plant of the land and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left, and no greenness was left on the trees or on the plants of the field, in all the land of Mitsrayim. (Exodus 10:16) Pharaoh then called for Mosheh and Aharon in haste, and said, “I have sinned against יהוה your Elohim and against you. (Exodus 10:17) “And now, please forgive my sin only this once, and pray to יהוה your Elohim, that He would only turn away this death from me.” (Exodus 10:18) And he went out from Pharaoh and prayed to יהוה. (Exodus 10:19) And יהוה turned a very strong west wind, which took the locusts away and blew them into the Sea of Reeds. Not one locust was left within all the border of Mitsrayim. (Exodus 10:20) However, יהוה hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he did not let the children of Yisra’ĕl go. (Exodus 10:21)

3 days darkness comes at the Judgment of Idols in this Preview- Vs. 150 days in the Judgment of Idols in our day

And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Stretch out your hand toward the heavens, and let there be darkness over the land of Mitsrayim, even a darkness which is felt.” (Exodus 10:22) And Mosheh stretched out his hand toward the heavens, and there was thick darkness in all the land of Mitsrayim for three days. (Exodus 10:23) They did not see one another, nor did anyone rise from his place for three days, while all the children of Yisra’ĕl had light in their dwellings. (Exodus 10:24) And Pharaoh called to Mosheh and said, “Go, serve יהוה, only leave your flocks and your herds behind. Let your little ones go with you too.” (Exodus 10:25) But Mosheh said, “You yourself are to provide us with slaughterings and burnt offerings, to prepare for יהוה our Elohim. (Exodus 10:26) “And our livestock are to go with us too, not a hoof is to be left behind, for we have to take some of them to serve יהוה our Elohim, and we ourselves do not know with what we are to serve יהוה until we come there.” (Exodus 10:27) However, יהוה hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he would not let them go. (Exodus 10:28) And Pharaoh said to him, “Get away from me! Watch yourself and see my face no more, for in the day you see my face you die!” (Exodus 10:29) And Mosheh said, “You have spoken rightly – never again do I see your face!”

Here is the 5 Months of Darkness in our day with the death of 1/3 of the earth (read all of Revelation 9 to get the picture)

(Rev 9:2) And he opened the pit of the deep, and smoke went up out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. And the sun was darkened, also the air, because of the smoke of the pit. (Rev 9:3) And out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth and authority was given to them as the scorpions of the earth possess authority. (Rev 9:4) And it was said to them that they shall not harm the grass of the earth, or any green matter, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of Elohim upon their foreheads. (Rev 9:5) And it was given to them that they should not kill them, but to torture them for five months. And their torture was like the torture of a scorpion when it stings a man. Idolatry Rev 9:21 and they did not repent of their murders, or of their drug sorceries, or of their whoring, or of their thefts.

Pharaoh’s (Anti-Messiah-Anti-Christ) One World System pays for YHWH’s people to have plenty as YHWH makes a distinction between the worldly and His people Israel- you and I!

(Exodus 11:1) And יהוה said to Mosheh, “I am bringing yet one more plague on Pharaoh and on Mitsrayim. After that he is going to let you go from here. When he lets you go, he shall drive you out from here altogether. (Exodus 11:2) Speak now in the hearing of the people, and let every man ask from his neighbor and every woman from her neighbor, objects of silver and objects of gold.” (Exodus 11:3) And יהוה gave the people favor in the eyes of the Mitsrites. And the man Mosheh was very great in the land of Mitsrayim, in the eyes of Pharaoh’s servants and in the eyes of the people. (Exodus 11:4) And Mosheh said, “Thus said יהוה, ‘About midnight I am going out into the midst of Mitsrayim, (Exodus 11:5) and all the first-born in the land of Mitsrayim shall die, from the first-born of Pharaoh who sits on his throne, even to the first-born of the female servant who is behind the hand mill, and all the first-born of cattle. (Exodus 11:6) ‘And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Mitsrayim, such as has never been or ever be again. (Exodus 11:7) ‘But against any of the children of Yisra’ĕl no dog shall move its tongue, against man or against beast, so that you know that יהוה makes distinction between Mitsrayim and Yisra’ĕl.’ (Exodus 11:8) “And all these servants of yours shall come down to me and bow down to me, saying, ‘Get out, you and all the people at your feet!’ And after that I shall go out.” And he went out from Pharaoh in great displeasure. (Exodus 11:9) But יהוה said to Mosheh, “Pharaoh is not going to listen to you, in order to multiply my wonders in the land of Mitsrayim.” (Exodus 11:10) And Mosheh and Aharon did all these wonders before Pharaoh, however, יהוה hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he did not let the children of Yisra’ĕl go out of his land.

Start of the Biblical Year- Aviv- just before Passover and the blood of the Lamb

(Exodus 12:1) And יהוה spoke to Mosheh and to Aharon in the land of Mitsrayim, saying, Exodus 12:2)This month is the beginning of months for you it is the first month of the youar for you. (Exodus 12:3) “Speak to all the congregation of Yisra’ĕl, saying, ‘On the tenth day of this month each one of them is to take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household. (Exodus 12:4) ‘And if the household is too small for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next to his house take it according to the number of the beings, according to each man’s need you make your count for the lamb.

Yahshua IS the perfect Lamb without blemish! He was inspected from the 10th to the 14th by the Pharisees, Pilate, Herod (Caesar) and they found no fault in Him! His blood will still protect you against the power of the Destroyer- consider speaking a bloodline of protection around yourself and loved ones (Speak His words!)- make sure your relationship with Him is in order! (Rev 12:10) And I heard a loud voice saying in the heaven, “Now have come the deliverance and the power and the reign of our Elohim,1 and the authority of His Messiah, for the accuser of our brothers, who accused them before our Elohim day and night, has been thrown down. Footnote: 1See 11:15. (Rev 12:11) And they overcame him because of the Blood of the Lamb, and because of the Word of their witness, and they did not love their lives to the death. (Rev 12:12) “Because of this rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has little time.”

Keep the Passover- an everlasting command!

(Exodus 12:5) Let the lamb be a perfect one, a youar old male. Take it from the sheep or from the goats. (Exodus 12:6) ‘And you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then all the assembly of the congregation of Yisra’ĕl shall kill it between the evenings. (Exodus 12:7) ‘And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it. (Exodus 12:8) ‘And they shall eat the flesh on that night, roasted in fire – with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. (Exodus 12:9) ‘Do not eat it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted in fire, its head with its legs and its inward parts. (Exodus 12:10) ‘And do not leave of it until morning, and what remains of it until morning you are to burn with fire. (Exodus 12:11) ‘And this is how you eat it: your loins girded your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. And you shall eat it in haste. It is the Passover of יהוה. (Exodus 12:12) ‘And I shall pass through the land of Mitsrayim on that night, and shall smite all the first-born in the land of Mitsrayim, both man and beast. And on all the mighty ones of Mitsrayim I shall execute judgment. I am יהוה. (Exodus 12:13) And the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I shall pass over you, and let the plague not come on you to destroy you when I smite the land of Mitsrayim. (Exodus 12:14) ‘And this day shall become to you a remembrance. And you shall observe it as a festival to יהוה throughout your generations – observe it as a festival, an everlasting law. (Exodus 12:15) ‘Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. Indeed on the first day you cause leaven to cease from your houses. For whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that being shall be cut off from Yisra’ĕl. (Exodus 12:16) ‘And on the first day is a set-apart gathering, and on the seventh day you have a set-apart gathering. No work at all is done on them, only that which is eaten by every being, that alone is prepared by you. (Exodus 12:17) ‘And you shall guard the Festival of Unleavened Bread, for on this same day I brought your divisions out of the land of Mitsrayim. And you shall guard this day throughout your generations, an everlasting law. (Exodus 12:18) ‘In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, in the evening, you shall eat unleavened bread until the twenty-first day of the month in the evening. (Exodus 12:19) ‘For seven days no leaven is to be found in your houses, for if anyone eats what is leavened, that same being shall be cut off from the congregation of Yisra’ĕl, whether sojourner or native of the land. (Exodus 12:20) ‘Do not eat that which is leavened – in all your dwellings you are to eat unleavened bread.’ ” (Exodus 12:21) And Mosheh called for all the elders of Yisra’ĕl and said to them, “Go out and take lambs for yourselves according to your clans, and slaughter the Passover lamb.

Here’s why we apply the blood to our hearts or the doorposts of our lives!

(Exodus 12:22) “And you shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two doorposts with the blood that is in the basin, and you, none of you shall go out of the door of his house until morning. (Exodus 12:23) “And יהוה shall pass on to smite the Mitsrites, and shall see the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, and יהוה shall pass over the door and not allow the destroyer to come into your houses to smite you. (Exodus 12:24) “And you shall guard this word as a law for you and your sons, forever. (Exodus 12:25) “And it shall be, when you come to the land which יהוה gives you, as He promised, that you shall guard this service. (Exodus 12:26) “And it shall be, when your children say to you, ‘What does this service mean to you?’ (Exodus 12:27) then you shall say, ‘It is the Passover slaughtering of יהוה, who passed over the houses of the children of Yisra’ĕl in Mitsrayim when He smote the Mitsrites and delivered our households.’ ” And the people bowed their heads and did obeisance. (Exodus 12:28) And the children of Yisra’ĕl went away and did so – as יהוה had commanded Mosheh and Aharon, so they did. (Exodus 12:29) And it came to be at midnight that יהוה smote all the first-born in the land of Mitsrayim, from the first-born of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the first-born of the captive who was in the dungeon, and all the first-born of livestock. (Exodus 12:30) And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he and all his servants, and all the Mitsrites. And there was a great cry in Mitsrayim, for there was not a house where there was not a dead one. (Exodus 12:31) Then he called for Mosheh and Aharon by night, and said, “Arise, go out from the midst of my people, both you and the children of Yisra’ĕl. And go, serve יהוה as you have said. (Exodus 12:32) “Take both your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and go. Then you shall bless me too.” (Exodus 12:33) And the Mitsrites urged the people, to hasten to send them away out of the land. For they said, “We are all dying!” (Exodus 12:34) And the people took their dough before it was leavened, having their kneading bowls bound up in their garments on their shoulders. (Exodus 12:35) And the children of Yisra’ĕl had done according to the word of Mosheh, and they had asked from the Mitsrites objects of silver, and objects of gold, and garments. (Exodus 12:36) And יהוה gave the people favor in the eyes of the Mitsrites, so that they gave them what they asked, and they plundered the Mitsrites. (Exodus 12:37) And the children of Yisra’ĕl set out from Raʽmeses to Sukkoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides the little ones. (Exodus 12:38) And a mixed multitude went up with them too, also flocks and herds, very much livestock. (Exodus 12:39) And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they had brought out of Mitsrayim, for it was not leavened, since they were driven out of Mitsrayim, and had not been able to delay, nor had they prepared food for themselves. (Exodus 12:40) And the sojourn of the children of Yisra’ĕl who lived in Mitsrayim was four hundred and thirty years. (Exodus 12:41) And it came to be at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, on that same day it came to be that all the divisions of יהוה went out from the land of Mitsrayim. (Exodus 12:42) It is a night to be observed unto יהוה for bringing them out of the land of Mitsrayim. This night is unto יהוה, to be observed by all the children of Yisra’ĕl throughout their generations. (Exodus 12:43) And יהוה said to Mosheh and Aharon, “This is the law of the Passover: No son of a stranger is to eat of it, (Exodus 12:44) but any servant a man has bought for silver, when you have circumcised him, then let him eat of it. (Exodus 12:45) “A sojourner and a hired servant does not eat of it. (Exodus 12:46) “It is eaten in one house, you are not to take any of the flesh outside the house, nor are you to break any bone of it. (Exodus 12:47) “All the congregation of Yisra’ĕl are to perform it. (Exodus 12:48) “And when a stranger sojourns with you and shall perform the Passover to יהוה, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and perform it, and he shall be as a native of the land. But let no uncircumcised eat of it. (Exodus 12:49) “There is one Torah for the native-born and for the stranger who sojourns among you.” (Exodus 12:50) And all the children of Yisra’ĕl did as יהוה commanded Mosheh and Aharon, so they did. (Exodus 12:51) And it came to be on that same day that יהוה brought the children of Yisra’ĕl out of the land of Mitsrayim according to their divisions.

Get rid of SIN- Be delivered from slavery! Make a choice for righteousness NOW!

(Exodus 13:1) And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Exodus 13:2) “Set apart to me all the first-born, the one opening the womb among the children of Yisra’ĕl, among man and among beast, it is mine.” (Exodus 13:3) And Mosheh said to the people, “Remember this day in which you went out of Mitsrayim, out of the house of slavery. For by strength of hand יהוה brought you out of this place, and whatever is leavened shall not be eaten. (Exodus 13:4) “Today you are going out, in the month Aḇiḇ. (Exodus 13:5) “And it shall be, when יהוה brings you into the land of the Kenaʽanites, and the Ḥittites, and the Amorites, and the Ḥiwwites, and the Yeḇusites, which He swore to your fathers to give you, a land flowing with milk and honey, that you shall keep this service in this month. (Exodus 13:6) “Seven days you eat unleavened bread, and on the seventh day is a festival to יהוה. (Exodus 13:7) “Unleavened bread is to be eaten the seven days, and whatever is leavened is not to be seen with you, and leaven is not to be seen with you within your entire border. (Exodus 13:8) “And you shall inform your son in that day, saying, ‘It is because of what יהוה did for me when I came up from Mitsrayim.’ (Exodus 13:9) “And it shall be as a sign to you on your hand and as a reminder between your eyes that the Torah of יהוה is to be in your mouth, for with a strong hand יהוה has brought you out of Mitsrayim. (Exodus 13:10) “And you shall guard this law at its appointed time from year to yeaar. (Exodus 13:11) “And it shall be, when יהוה brings you into the land of the Kenaʽanites, as He swore to you and your fathers, and gives it to you, (Exodus 13:12) that you shall pass over to יהוה every one opening the womb, and every first-born that comes from your livestock, the males belong to יהוה. (Exodus 13:13) “But every first-born of a donkey you are to ransom with a lamb. And if you do not ransom it, then you shall break its neck. And every first-born of man among your sons you are to ransom. (Exodus 13:14) “And it shall be, when your son asks you in time to come, saying, ‘What is this?’ then you shall say to him, ‘By strength of hand יהוה brought us out of Mitsrayim, out of the house of bondage. (Exodus 13:15) ‘And it came to be, when Pharaoh was too hardened to let us go, that יהוה killed every first-born in the land of Mitsrayim, both the first-born of man and the first-born of beast. Therefore I am slaughtering to יהוה every male that open the womb, but every first-born of my sons I ransom.’ (Exodus 13:16) “And it shall be as a sign on your hand and as frontlets between your eyes, for by strength of hand יהוה brought us out of Mitsrayim.” (Exodus 13:17) And it came to be, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that Elohim did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines, though that was nearer, for Elohim said, “Lest the people regret when they see fighting, and return to Mitsrayim.” (Exodus 13:18) So Elohim led the people around by way of the wilderness of the Sea of Reeds. And the children of Yisra’ĕl went up armed from the land of Mitsrayim. (Exodus 13:19) And Mosheh took the bones of Yosĕph with him, for he certainly made the children of Yisra’ĕl swear, saying, “Elohim shall certainly visit you, and you shall bring my bones from here with you.” (Exodus 13:20) And they departed from Sukkoth and camped in Ětham at the edge of the wilderness. (Exodus 13:21) And יהוה went before them by day in a column of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a column of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night. (Exodus 13:22) The column of cloud did not cease by day, nor the column of fire by night, before the people.

Judgment on Pharaoh’s One World System! (And those trusting in him) Do Not Fear!

(Jeremiah 46:13) The word which יהוה spoke to Yirmeyahu the prophet, about the coming of Neḇuḵaḏretstsar sovereign of Baḇel, to smite the land of Mitsrayim: (Jeremiah 46:14) “Declare in Mitsrayim, and let it be heard in Miḡdol. And let it be heard in Noph and in Taḥpanḥes. Say, ‘Stand fast and be prepared, for a sword shall devour all around you.’ (Jeremiah 46:15) “Why were your strong ones swept away? They did not stand because יהוה drove them away. (Jeremiah 46:16) “He made many stumble; indeed, they fell over each other, and said, ‘Arise! Let us go back to our own people, and to the land of our birth, away from the oppressing sword.’ (Jeremiah 46:17) “There they cried, ‘Pharaoh, sovereign of Mitsrayim, is but a noise. He has let the appointed time pass by!’ (Jeremiah 46:18) “As I live,” declares the Sovereign, whose Name is יהוה of hosts, “For as Taḇor is among the mountains, and as Karmel by the sea, he shall come. (Jeremiah 46:19) “O you daughter dwelling in Mitsrayim, prepare yourself to go into exile! Noph shall become a waste and a ruin, and be burned, without inhabitant. (Jeremiah 46:20) “Mitsrayim is like a very pretty heifer, but destruction comes, it comes from the north. (Jeremiah 46:21) “Her hired ones too, in her midst, are like fattened calves, for they too shall turn, they shall flee away together. They shall not stand, for the day of their calamity has come upon them, the time of their punishment. (Jeremiah 46:22) “Its sound moves along like a serpent, for they move on like an army and come against her with axes, like woodcutters. (Jeremiah 46:23) “They shall cut down her forest” declares יהוה, “for it is not searched, because they are more numerous than locusts, and without number. (Jeremiah 46:24) “The daughter of Mitsrayim shall be put to shame. She shall be given into the hand of the people of the north.” (Jeremiah 46:25) יהוה of hosts, the Elohim of Yisra’ĕl, has said, “See, I am bringing punishment on Amon of No, and on Pharaoh, and on Mitsrayim, and on their mighty ones, and on their sovereigns, and on Pharaoh and on those trusting in him. (Jeremiah 46:26) “And I shall give them into the hand of those who seek their lives, into the hand of Neḇuḵaḏretstsar sovereign of Baḇel and into the hand of his servants. And afterward it shall be inhabited as in the days of old,” declares יהוה. (Jeremiah 46:27) “But as for you, do not fear, O my servant Yaʽaqoḇ, and do not be discouraged, O Yisra’ĕl! For look, I am saving you from afar, and your descendants from the land of their captivity. And Yaʽaqoḇ shall return, and shall have rest and be at ease, with no one disturbing. (Jeremiah 46:28) Do not fear, O Yaʽaqoḇ my servant” declares יהוה, “for I am with you. Though I make a complete end of all the gentiles to which I have driven you, yout I do not make a complete end of you1. But I shall reprove you in right-ruling, and by no means leave you unpunished.” Footnote: 1See 46:28, Isa. 34:2, Isa. 45:17, Dan. 2:44, Amos 9:8, Hag. 2:22.

Consider judging ourselves first- then having our own communion daily with Messiah or at least each Shabbat!

(1Co 11:20) So when you come together in one place, it is not to eat the Master’s supper. (1Co 11:21) For, when you eat, each one takes his own supper first, and one is hungry and another is drunk. (1Co 11:22) Have you not houses to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the assembly of Elohim and shame those who have not? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you in this? I do not praise! (1Co 11:23) For I received from the Master that which I also delivered to you: that the Master יהושע in the night in which He was delivered up took bread, (1 Co 11:24) and having given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat, this is my body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of me.(1Co 11:25) In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the renewed covenant in my blood. As often as you drink it, do this in remembrance of me.” (1Co 11:26) For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the death of the Master until He comes. (1Co 11:27) So whoever should eat this bread or drink this cup of the Master unworthily shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Master. (1Co 11:28) But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread and drink of that cup. (1Co 11:29) For the one who is eating and drinking unworthily, eats and drinks judgment to himself not discerning the body of the Master. (1Co 11:30) Because of this many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep. (1Co 11:31) For if we were to examine ourselves, we would not be judged. (1Co 11:32) But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Master, that we should not be condemned with the world. (1Co 11:33) So then, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for one another. (1Co 11:34) And if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, lest you come together for judgment. And the rest I shall set in order when I come.

Do we love Him? Do away with traditions that are not Biblical and OBEY HIM who made Heaven and Earth! (Let’s not worship Him in VAIN!) (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.”

(Mar 7:1) And the Pharisees and some of the scribes assembled to Him, having come from Yerushalayim. (Mar 7:2) And seeing some of His taught ones eat bread with defiled, that is, with unwashed hands, they found fault. (Mar 7:3) For the Pharisees, and all the Yehuḏim, do not eat unless they wash their hands thoroughly, holding fast the tradition of the elders, (Mar 7:4) and coming from the market-place, they do not eat unless they wash. And there are many other traditions which they have received and hold fast – the washing of cups and utensils and copper vessels and couches. (Mar 7:5) Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, “Why do your taught ones not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?” (Mar 7:6) And He answering, said to them, “Well did Yeshayahu prophesy concerning you hypocrites, as it has been written, ‘this people respect me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. (Mar 7:7) And in vain do they worship me, teaching as teachings the commands of men.’1 Footnote: 1See Isa. 29:13, 2 Kings. 17:19 and Mt. 15:3-9. (Mar 7:8) “Forsaking the command of Elohim, you hold fast the tradition of men.” (Mar 7:9) And He said to them, “Well do you set aside the command of Elohim, in order to guard your tradition.

(Mar 7:10) “For Mosheh said, ‘Respect your father and your mother,’ and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’ (Mar 7:11) “But you say, ‘If a man says to his father or mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me, is Qorban (that is, a gift),” ’ (Mar 7:12) you no longer let him do any matter at all for his father or his mother, (Mar 7:13) nullifying the Word of Elohim through your tradition which you have handed down. And many such traditions you do.”

We store the Word of YHWH in us- so that what comes out of our mouths is not wicked! (Agree with YHWH with your words or be found a liar! (Rom 3:4) Let it not be! But let Elohim be true, and every man a liar, as it has been written, “That you should be declared right in your words, and prevail in your judging.”)

(Mar 7:14) And calling the crowd to Him, He said to them, “Hear me, everyone, and understand: (Mar 7:15) “There is no matter that enters a man from outside which is able to defile him, but it is what comes out of him that defiles the man. (Mar 7:16) “If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear!” (Mar 7:17) And when He went from the crowd into a house, His taught ones asked Him concerning the parable. (Mar 7:18) And He said to them, “Are you also without understanding? Do you not perceive that whatever enters a man from outside is unable to defile him, (Mar 7:19) because it does not enter his heart but his stomach,1 and is eliminated, thus purging all the foods?” Footnote: 1Mt. 15:20. (Mar 7:20) And He said, “What comes out of a man that defiles a man. (Mar 7:21) For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil reasonings, adulteries, whorings, murders (Mar 7:22) thefts, greedy desires, wickednesses, deceit, indecency, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. (Mar 7:23) All these wicked matters come from within and defile a man.” (Mar 7:24) And rising up from there He went to the borders of Tsor and Tsiḏon. And entering into a house He wished no one to know it, but it was impossible to be hidden. (Mar 7:25) For a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and she came and fell at His feet. (Mar 7:26) Now the woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth, and she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter. (Mar 7:27) And יהושע said to her, “Let the children be satisfied first, for it is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.”1 Footnote: 1Mt. 15:27. (Mar 7:28) But she answering, said to Him, “Yea, Master, for even the little dogs under the table eat from the children’s crumbs.” (Mar 7:29) And He said to her, “Because of this word go, the demon has gone out of your daughter.” (Mar 7:30) And having come into her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed. (Mar 7:31) And again, going out from the borders of Tsor and Tsiḏon, He came to the Sea of Galil, through the midst of the borders of Dekapolis. (Mar 7:32) And they brought to Him one who was deaf and spoke with difficulty, and they begged Him to lay His hand upon him. (Mar 7:33) And taking him away from the crowd, He put His fingers in his ears, and having spit, He touched his tongue. (Mar 7:34) And looking up to the heaven, He sighed, and said to him, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.” (Mar 7:35) And immediately his ears were opened, and the binding of his tongue was loosed, and he was speaking plainly. (Mar 7:36) And He ordered them that they should say it to no one, but the more He ordered them, the more they published it. (Mar 7:37) And they were immeasurably astonished, saying, “He has done all well. He makes even the deaf to hear and the dumb to speak.”
