Okay- once-again! What Happens When We Submit and Obey Willingly? (Submitting means submitting to the WORD and we change for He changes NOT!) Today I want to encourage you Loved One- no matter what evil the enemy has up His sleeve; if we are willing and obedient- giving thanks in all things, our Master and King will use us mightily to produce fruit that remains- even beyond us! Hallelu-Yah! He has destroyed the works of hell! This is what He came for to destroy the works of hell and gather the LOST SHEEP (You and I) of Israel! That means you and I can draw near to Him who made Heaven and Earth and OVERCOME all the power of the enemy! (Luke 10:18)  And He said to them, “I saw Satan falling out of the heaven as lightning. (Luke 10:19)  “See, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, (All demonic authority) and over all the power of the enemy, and none at all shall hurt you. (Luke 10:20)  “But do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names have been written in the heavens.” Hallelu-YAH! No need to fear man and the demonic hordes that do evil against us- he can only kill the body which is going back to dirt anyway- FEAR HIM (Awe and respect) who can cast to hell’s flames where the worm dies not! Luke_12:5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him. Mat_10:28 and fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Hey this is a no brainer- let’s draw near to our loving King, director, provider and protector!

Look- He really wants to help us and delivers us from all the works of hell!

(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 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.”

(Isa 1:18)  “Come now, and let us reason together,” says יהוה. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (Isa 1:19)  “If you submit and obey (willing and obedient), you shall eat the good of the land; (Isa 1:20) but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword,” the mouth of יהוה has spoken.
We become LESS and He becomes MORE of us! As we receive the engrafted Word of Life by submitting (receiving) - we become DOERS of the Word and not hearers only! We change and become more like our King and Savior. Then we are not so easily deceived. (James 4:7)  So then subject yourselves to Elohim. Resist the devil1 and he shall flee from you. Footnote: 1Or adversary. (James 4:8)  Draw near to Elohim and He shall draw near to you. Cleanse hands, sinners. And cleanse the hearts, you double-minded! This shows our maturity as we yield our tongues to the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) and He directs us. As He directs us more and more we can become more assured of our destiny and purpose and FEAR NOT!

Our tongue will direct our lives; IF we remain stubborn and not allow Him to control us- it will lead us to destruction! If we submit we gain His SHALOM as He directs us! Hallelu-YAH! He IS the Prince of Shalom! This is evident in the 2 spies GOOD REPORT (Yah’s word) VS the 10 spies Evil factual report in today’s Torah portion! Yes- especially for us today there are giants in the land but we will believe and SPEAK AGREEMENT WITH OUR KING!

(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 (Hell).

Why do we need His Shalom (Peace) NOW? (If this Biblical Scenario brings fear to you then you need to spend more time in the Scriptures getting to know more intimately your loving Creator who has ALL power and laughs at the wicked men raging against Him- He holds them in derision- FEAR NOT!

Here are this Week’s Torah Scriptures:  Shelah L’cha Send for Yourself

Numbers 13:1-15:41; Joshua 2:1-24; Hebrews 13:1-19 (Increased)

(Numbers 13:1)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Numbers 13:2) “Send men to spy out the land of Kenaʽan, which I am giving to the children of Yisra’ĕl. Send one man from each tribe of their fathers, everyone a leader among them.” (Numbers 13:3)  And by the command of יהוה Mosheh sent them from the Wilderness of Paran, all of them men who were heads of the children of Yisra’ĕl.  (Numbers 13:4)  And these were their names. From the tribe of Re’uḇĕn: Shammua, son of Zakkur. (Numbers 13:5)  From the tribe of Shimʽon: Shaphat, son of Ḥori. (Numbers 13:6)  From the tribe of Yehuḏah: Kalĕḇ, son of Yephunneh. (Numbers 13:7)  From the tribe of Yissasḵar: Yiḡ’al, son of Yosĕph. (Numbers 13:8)  From the tribe of Ephrayim: Hoshĕa, son of Nun. (Numbers 13:9)  From the tribe of Binyamin: Palti, son of Raphu. (Numbers 13:10)  From the tribe of Zeḇulun: Gaddi’ĕl, son of Soḏi. (Numbers 13:11) from the tribe of Yosĕph, from the tribe of Menashsheh: Gaddi, son of Susi. (Numbers 13:12)  From the tribe of Dan: Ammi’ĕl, son of Gemalli. (Numbers 13:13)  From the tribe of Ashĕr: Shĕthur, son of Miḵa’ĕl. (Numbers 13:14)  From the tribe of Naphtali: Naḥbi, son of Wophsi. (Numbers 13:15)  From the tribe of Gaḏ: Geu’ĕl, son of Maḵi. (Numbers 13:16) these are the names of the men whom Mosheh sent to spy out the land. And Mosheh called Hoshĕa the son of Nun, Yehoshua. (Numbers 13:17)  And Mosheh sent them to spy out the land of Kenaʽan, and said to them, “Go up here into the South, and go up to the mountains, (Numbers 13:18)  and see what the land is like, and the people who dwell in it, whether strong or weak, whether few or many, (Numbers 13:19)  and whether the land they dwell in is good or evil, whether the cities they inhabit are in camps or strongholds, (Numbers 13:20)  and whether the land is rich or poor, and whether there are forests there or not. And you shall be strong, and bring some of the fruit of the land.” Now the time was the season of the first-fruits of grapes. (Numbers 13:21)  So they went up and spied out the land from the Wilderness of Tsin as far as Reḥoḇ, near the entrance of Ḥamath. (Numbers 13:22)  And they went up through the South and came to Ḥeḇron. And Aḥiman, Shĕshai, and Talmai, the descendants of Anaq, were there. Now Ḥeḇron had been built seven years before Tsoʽan in Mitsrayim. (Numbers 13:23)  And they came to the wadi Eshkol, and cut down from there a branch with one cluster of grapes. And they bore it between two of them on a pole, also of the pomegranates and of the figs. (Numbers 13:24)  That place was called the wadi Eshkol, because of the cluster which the men of Yisra’ĕl cut down from there. (Numbers 13:25)  And they returned from spying out the land after forty days. (Numbers 13:26)  And they went and came to Mosheh and Aharon and all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl in the Wilderness of Paran, at Qaḏĕsh. And they brought back word to them and to the entire congregation, and showed them the fruit of the land. (Numbers 13:27)  And they reported to him, and said, “We went to the land where you sent us. And truly, it flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. (Numbers 13:28)  “But the people who dwell in the land are strong, and the cities are walled, very great. And we saw the descendants of Anaq there too. (Numbers 13:29)  “The Amalĕqites dwell in the land of the South, while the Ḥittites and the Yeḇusites and the Amorites dwell in the mountains. And the Kenaʽanites dwell by the sea and along the banks of the Yardĕn.” (Numbers 13:30)  And Kalĕḇ silenced the people before Mosheh, and said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are certainly able to overcome it.” (Numbers 13:31)  But the men who had gone up with him said, (THIS IS OUR LESSON TODAY- AGREEING IN WORDS AND ACTIONS WITH OUR KING OR AGREEING WITH THE ENEMY OF OUR SOULS AND THE POWER OF THE ENEMY!)We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we.” (Numbers 13:32)  And they gave the children of Yisra’ĕl an evil report of the land which they had spied out, saying, “The land through which we have gone as spies is a land eating up its inhabitants, and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great size. (Numbers 13:33)  “And we saw there the Nephilim, sons of Anaq, of the Nephilim. (Comment- fallen beings that impregnated women in Genesis 6:4; the very reason of the flood and YHWH’s judgment of mankind- corrupted DNA) And we were like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and so we were in their eyes.”

Agreeing with the enemy’s report brings weeping and death! Watch our words and grumble NOT!

(Numbers 14:1)  Then the entire congregation lifted up their voices and cried, and the people wept that night. (Numbers 14:2)  And all the children of Yisra’ĕl grumbled against Mosheh and against Aharon, and the entire congregation said to them, “If only we had died in the land of Mitsrayim! Or if only we had died in this wilderness! (Numbers 14:3)  “And why is יהוה bringing us to this land to fall by the sword, that our wives and children should become a prey? Would it not be better for us to turn back to Mitsrayim?” (Numbers 14:4)  And they said to each other, “Let us appoint a leader, and let us turn back to Mitsrayim.” (Numbers 14:5)  Then Mosheh and Aharon fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl. (Numbers 14:6)  And Yehoshua son of Nun, and Kalĕḇ son of Yephunneh, who were among those who had spied out the land, tore their garments, (Numbers 14:7)  and they spoke to all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl, saying, “The land we passed through to spy out is an exceedingly good land. (Numbers 14:8)  “If יהוה has delighted in us, then He shall bring us into this land and give it to us, ‘a land which is flowing with milk and honey.’ (Numbers 14:9)  “Only, do not rebel against יהוה, nor fear the people of the land, for they are our bread. Their defense has turned away from them, and יהוה is with us. Do not fear them.” (Numbers 14:10)  But the entire congregation said to stone them with stones. Then the esteem of יהוה appeared in the Tent of Meeting before all the children of Yisra’ĕl. (Numbers 14:11)  And יהוה said to Mosheh, “How long shall I be scorned by these people? And how long shall I not be trusted by them, with all the signs which I have done in their midst? (Numbers 14:12)  “Let Me smite them with the pestilence and disinherit them, and make of you a nation greater and mightier than they.” (Numbers 14:13)  And Mosheh said to יהוה, “Then the Mitsrites shall hear it, for by Your power You brought these people up from their midst, (Numbers 14:14)  and they shall say to the inhabitants of this land they have heard that You, יהוה, are in the midst of these people, that You, יהוה, are seen eye to eye and that Your cloud stands above them, and You go before them in a column of cloud by day and in a column of fire by night. (Numbers 14:15)  “Now if You shall kill these people as one man, then the nations which have heard of Your report shall speak, saying, (Numbers 14:16)  ‘Because יהוה was not able to bring this people to the land which He swore to give them, therefore He killed them in the wilderness.’ (Numbers 14:17)  “And now, I pray, let the power of יהוה be great, as you have spoken, saying, (Numbers 14:18)  ‘יהוה is patient and of great kindness, forgiving crookedness and transgression, but by no means leaving unpunished1; visiting the crookedness of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation.’ Footnote: 1This is confirmed in Ex. 34:7 and in Jer. 30:11. (Numbers 14:19)  “Please forgive the crookedness of this people, according to the greatness of your kindness, as You have forgiven this people, from Mitsrayim even until now.” (Numbers 14:20)  And יהוה said, “I shall forgive, according to your word, (Numbers 14:21)  but truly, as I live and all the earth is filled with the esteem of יהוה, (Numbers 14:22)  for none of these men who have seen My esteem and the signs which I did in Mitsrayim and in the wilderness, and have tried Me now these ten times, and have disobeyed My voice, (Numbers 14:23)  shall see the land of which I swore to their fathers, nor any of those who scorned Me see it. (Numbers 14:24)  “But My servant Kalĕḇ, because he has a different spirit in him and has followed me completely, I shall bring into the land where he went, and his seed shall inherit it. (Numbers 14:25)  “Since the Amalĕqites and the Kenaʽanites are dwelling in the valley, turn back tomorrow and set out into the wilderness by the Way of the Sea of Reeds.” (Red Sea) (Numbers 14:26)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, and to Aharon, saying, (Numbers 14:27)How long shall this evil congregation have this grumbling against me? I have heard the grumblings which the children of Yisra’ĕl are grumbling against Me. (Numbers 14:28) “Say to them, ‘As I live,’ declares יהוה, ‘as you have spoken in My hearing, so I do to you: (Numbers 14:29)  ‘The carcasses of you who have grumbled against Me are going to fall in this wilderness, all of you who were registered, according to your entire number, from twenty years old and above. (Numbers 14:30)  ‘None of you except Kalĕḇ son of Yephunneh, and Yehoshua son of Nun, shall enter the land which I swore I would make you dwell in. (Numbers 14:31) ‘But your little ones, whom you said would become a prey, I shall bring in, and they shall know the land which you have rejected. (Numbers 14:32)  ‘But as for you, your carcasses are going to fall in this wilderness. (Numbers 14:33)  ‘And your sons shall be wanderers in the wilderness forty years, and shall bear your whorings, until your carcasses are consumed in the wilderness. (Numbers 14:34)  ‘According to the number of the days in which you spied out the land, forty days – a day for a year, a day for a year – you are to bear your crookednesses forty years, and you shall know My breaking off. (Numbers 14:35)  ‘I am יהוה, I have spoken, I shall do this to all this evil congregation who are meeting against Me: In this wilderness they are consumed, and there they die.’ ” (Numbers 14:36)  And the men whom Mosheh sent to spy out the land, who returned and made all the congregation grumble against him by bringing an evil report of the land, (Numbers 14:37)  even those men who brought the evil report about the land, died by the plague before יהוה. (Numbers 14:38)  Of those men who went to spy out the land, only Yehoshua son of Nun, and Kalĕḇ son of Yephunneh remained alive. (Numbers 14:39)  And when Mosheh spoke these words to all the children of Yisra’ĕl, the people mourned greatly. (Numbers 14:40)  And they rose up early in the morning and went up to the top of the mountain, saying, “See, we have indeed sinned, but we shall go up to the place which יהוה had spoken of!” (Numbers 14:41)  But Mosheh said, “Why do you now transgress the command of יהוה, since it does not prosper? (Numbers 14:42)  “Do not go up, lest you be smitten by your enemies, for יהוה is not in your midst. (Numbers 14:43)  “Because the Amalĕqites and the Kenaʽanites are there before you, and you shall fall by the sword. Because you have turned away from יהוה, יהוה is not with you.” (Numbers 14:44)  But they presumed to go up to the mountaintop, but neither the ark of the covenant of יהוה nor Mosheh left the camp. (Numbers 14:45)  So the Amalĕqites and the Kenaʽanites who dwelt in that mountain came down and smote them, and beat them down, even to    Ḥormah.

A sweet fragrance to YHWH is our offering- especially THANKS AND PRAISE!

(Numbers 15:1)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Numbers 15:2)  “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and say to them, ‘When you have come into the land of your dwellings, which I am giving you, (Numbers 15:3)  and you make an offering by fire to יהוה, a burnt offering or a slaughtering, to accomplish a vow or as a voluntary offering or in your appointed times, to make a sweet fragrance to יהוה, from the herd or the flock, (Numbers 15:4)  then he who brings near his offering to יהוה shall bring near a grain offering of one-tenth of an ĕphah of fine flour mixed with one-fourth of a hin of oil, (Numbers 15:5)  and one-fourth of a hin of wine as a drink offering you prepare with the burnt offering or the slaughtering, for each lamb. (Numbers 15:6)  ‘Or for a ram you prepare as a grain offering two-tenths of an ĕphah of fine flour mixed with one-third of a hin of oil, (Numbers 15:7)  and as a drink offering you bring one-third of a hin of wine as a sweet fragrance to יהוה. (Numbers 15:8)  ‘And when you prepare a young bull as a burnt offering, or as a slaughtering to accomplish a vow, or as a peace offering to יהוה, (Numbers 15:9) then shall be brought with the young bull a grain offering of three-tenths of an ĕphah of fine flour mixed with half a hin of oil, (Numbers 15:10) and bring as the drink offering half a hin of wine as an offering made by fire, a sweet fragrance to יהוה. (Numbers 15:11)  ‘This is what is done for each young bull, for each ram, or for each lamb or young goat. (Numbers 15:12)  ‘According to the number that you prepare, so you do for each one according to their number. (Numbers 15:13)  ‘Let all who are native do so with them, in bringing near an offering made by fire, a sweet fragrance to יהוה. (Numbers 15:14)  ‘And when a stranger sojourns with you, or whoever is among you throughout your generations, and would make an offering made by fire, a sweet fragrance to יהוה, as you do, so he does. (Numbers 15:15)  ‘One law is for you of the assembly and for the stranger who sojourns with you – a law forever throughout your generations. As you are, so is the stranger before יהוה. (Numbers 15:16)  ‘One Torah and one right-ruling is for you and for the stranger who sojourns with you.’ ” (Numbers 15:17)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Numbers 15:18)  “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and say to them, ‘When you come into the land to which I bring you, (Numbers 15:19)  then it shall be, when you eat of the bread of the land, that you present a contribution to יהוה. (Numbers 15:20)  ‘Present a cake of the first of your dough as a contribution – as a contribution of the threshing-floor you present it. (Numbers 15:21)  ‘Of the first of your dough you are to give to יהוה a contribution throughout your generations. (Numbers 15:22)  ‘And when you sin by mistake, and do not do all these commands which יהוה has spoken to Mosheh, (Numbers 15:23)  all that יהוה has commanded you by the hand of Mosheh, from the day יהוה gave command and onward throughout your generations, (Numbers 15:24)  then it shall be, if it is done by mistake, without the knowledge of the congregation, that all the congregation shall prepare one young bull as a burnt offering, as a sweet fragrance to יהוה, with its grain offering and its drink offering, according to the right-ruling, and one male goat as a sin offering. (Numbers 15:25)  ‘Then the priest shall make atonement for all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl, and it shall be forgiven them, for it was by mistake. And they shall bring their offering, an offering made by fire to יהוה, and their sin offering before יהוה, for their mistake. (Numbers 15:26)  ‘And it shall be forgiven all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl and the stranger who sojourns in their midst, because all the people did it by mistake. (Numbers 15:27)  ‘And if a being sins by mistake, then he shall bring a female goat a year old as a sin offering. (Numbers 15:28)  ‘And the priest shall make atonement for the being who strays by mistake, when he sins by mistake before יהוה, to make atonement for him, and it shall be forgiven him. (Numbers 15:29)  ‘For him who does whatever by mistake there is one Torah, both for him who is native among the children of Yisra’ĕl and for the stranger who sojourns in their midst. (Numbers 15:30)  ‘But the being who does whatever defiantly, whether he is native or a stranger, he reviles יהוה, and that being shall be cut off from among his people. (Numbers 15:31)  ‘Because he has despised the word of יהוה, and has broken His command, that being shall certainly be cut off, his crookedness is upon him.’ (Numbers 15:32)  And while the children of Yisra’ĕl were in the wilderness, they found a man gathering sticks on the Sabbath day. (Numbers 15:33)  And those who found him gathering sticks brought him to Mosheh and to Aharon, and to the entire congregation. (Numbers 15:34)  And they put him in under guard, because it had not been declared what should be done to him. (Numbers 15:35)  And יהוה said to Mosheh, “The man shall certainly be put to death, all the congregation stoning him with stones outside the camp.” (Numbers 15:36)  And the entire congregation brought him outside the camp and stoned him with stones, as יהוה commanded Mosheh, and he died.

Wearing Tzitzit says you are keeping His commands- therefore all the promises (including healing) given by obedience are yours- this is why the woman with the issue of blood grabbed Yahshua’s Tzitzit!

(Numbers 15:37)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Numbers 15:38) “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and you shall say to them to make tzitziyot1 on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and to put a blue cord in the tzitzit1 of the corners. Footnote: 1See Explanatory notes - “Tzitzit” - plural Tzitziyot. (Numbers 15:39)  “And it shall be to you for a tzitzit, and you shall see it, and shall remember all the commands of יהוה and shall do them, and not search after your own heart and your own eyes after which you went whoring, (Numbers 15:40)  so that you remember, and shall do all My commands, and be set-apart unto your Elohim. (Numbers 15:41)  “I am יהוה your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, to be your Elohim. I am יהוה your Elohim.”

Note those of us who have a GOOD REPORT (One that agrees with YHWH’S WORDS!) enters His PROMISES!

(Joshua 2:1)  And Yehoshua son of Nun secretly sent out two men from Shittim to spy, saying, “Go, see the land, and Yeriḥo.” And they went, and came to the house of a woman, a whore, and her name was Raḥaḇ, and they lay down there. (Joshua 2:2)  But it was reported to the sovereign of Yeriḥo, saying, “See, men from the children of Yisra’ĕl have come here tonight to search out the land.” (Joshua 2:3)  And the sovereign of Yeriḥo sent to Raḥaḇ, saying, “Bring out the men who have come to you, who have entered your house, for they have come to search out all the land.” (Joshua 2:4)  But the woman had taken the two men and hid them. So she said, “The men came to me, but I did not know where they were from. (Joshua 2:5)  “Then it came to be as the gate was being shut, when it was dark that the men went out. I do not know where the men went. Pursue them quickly, so that you overtake them.” (Joshua 2:6)  But she had brought them up to the roof and hidden them with the stalks of flax, which she had laid out on the roof. (Joshua 2:7)  And the men pursued them by the way to the Yardĕn, to the fords. And they shut the gate afterwards as soon as the pursuers had gone out. (Joshua 2:8)  And before they lay down, she came up to them on the roof, (Joshua 2:9)  and she said to the men, “I know that יהוה has given you the land, and that the fear of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land melt away because of you. (Joshua 2:10)  “For we have heard how יהוה dried up the water of the Sea of Reeds for you when you came out of Mitsrayim, and what you did to the two sovereigns of the Amorites who were beyond the Yardĕn, Siḥon and Oḡ, whom you put under the ban. (Joshua 2:11)  “And when we heard, our hearts melted, and there was no spirit left in anyone because of you, for יהוה your Elohim, He is Elohim in the heavens above and on earth beneath. (Joshua 2:12)  “And now, please swear to me by יהוה, since I have shown you kindness, that you also show kindness to my father’s house, and shall give me a true token, (Joshua 2:13)  and shall spare my father, and my mother, and my brothers, and my sisters, and all that they have, and shall deliver our lives from death.” (Joshua 2:14)  And the men said to her, “Our lives for yours, if you do not expose this matter of ours, then it shall be, when יהוה has given us the land, that we shall treat you in kindness and truth.” (Joshua 2:15)  So she let them down by a rope through the window, for her house was on the city wall and she dwelt on the wall. (Joshua 2:16)  And she said to them, “Go to the mountain, lest the pursuers come upon you. And you shall hide there three days, until the pursuers have returned, and afterwards go on your way.” (Joshua 2:17)  And the men said to her, “We are released from this oath of yours which you have made us swear, (Joshua 2:18) unless, when we come into the land, you bind this line of scarlet cord in the window through which you let us down, and unless you bring your father, and your mother, and your brothers, and all your father’s household to your own home. (Joshua 2:19)  “And it shall be that anyone who goes outside the doors of your house into the street, his blood is on his own head, and we are innocent. And anyone who is with you in the house, his blood is on our head if a hand is laid on him. (Joshua 2:20)  “And if you expose this matter of ours, then we shall be released from your oath which you made us swear.” (Joshua 2:21)  And she said, “Let it be according to your words.” And she sent them away, and they went. And she bound the scarlet cord in the window. (Joshua 2:22)  So they left and came to the mountain, and stayed there three days until the pursuers returned. And the pursuers sought them in all the way, but did not find them. (Joshua 2:23)  Then the two men returned and came down from the mountain, and passed over. And they came to Yehoshua son of Nun, and related to him all that had befallen them. (Joshua 2:24)  And they said to Yehoshua, “Truly יהוה has given all the land into our hands, and also, all the inhabitants of the land have melted away because of us.”

Yahshua- the same yesterday and forever!

(Hebrews 13:1)  Let the brotherly love continue. (Hebrews 13:2)  Do not forget to receive strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained messengers. (Hebrews 13:3)  Remember the prisoners as if chained with them, and those being mistreated, since you yourselves also are in the body. (Hebrews 13:4)  Let marriage be respected by all, and the bed be undefiled. But Elohim shall judge those who whore, and adulterers. (Hebrews 13:5)  Let your way of life be without the love of money, and be satisfied with what you have. For He Himself has said, “I shall never leave you nor forsake you,” (Hebrews 13:6) so that we boldly say, “יהוה is my helper, I shall not fear what man shall do to me.” (Hebrews 13:7)  Remember those leading you, who spoke the Word of Elohim to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their belief. (Hebrews 13:8) יהושע the Messiah is the same yesterday, and today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:9)  Do not be borne about by various and strange teachings.1 It is good for the heart to be established by favor, not with foods which have not profited those who have been occupied with them. Footnote: 1Eph. 4:14. (Hebrews 13:10)  We have an altar from which those serving the Tent have no authority to eat. (Hebrews 13:11)  For the bodies of those beasts whose blood is brought into the Set-apart Place by the high priest for sin, are burned outside the camp. (Hebrews 13:12)  And so יהושע also suffered outside the gate, to set apart the people with His own blood. (Hebrews 13:13)  Let us, then, go to Him outside the camp, bearing His reproach. (Hebrews 13:14)  We have no lasting city here, but we seek the one coming. (Hebrews 13:15)  Through Him then, let us continually offer up a slaughter offering of praise to Elohim, that is, the fruit of our lips,1 giving thanks to His Name. Footnote: 1Or “bulls of our lips” - See Hosh. 14:2. (Hebrews 13:16) and do not forget to do well and to share, for with such slaughter offerings Elohim is well pleased. (Hebrews 13:17)  Obey those leading you, and be subject to them, for they watch for your lives, as having to give account. Let them do so with joy and not groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you. (Hebrews 13:18)  Pray for us, for we trust that we have a good conscience, desiring to behave well in every way. (Hebrews 13:19)  But I particularly encourage you to do this, that I might be restored to you the sooner.

My prayer for you Loved One and ALL your loved ones- is that we allow YHWH to direct our tongue which will allow Him to direct our lives; BUT IF we remain stubborn and not allow Him to control us- it will lead us to destruction! If we submit we gain His SHALOM as He directs us! Hallelu-YAH! He IS the Prince of Shalom! This is evident in the 2 spies GOOD REPORT (Yah’s word) VS the 10 spies Evil factual report in today’s Torah portion! Yes- especially for us today there are giants in the land but we will believe and SPEAK AGREEMENT WITH OUR KING! My further request at the Throne room is that you and I study and show ourselves approved rightly dividing the TORAH that we may speak agreement with our King- even memorizing Psalm 91 and personalizing it! Please consider carefully what words you speak and ask the Holy Spirit to direct your tongue and gently correct and change what must be changed before we stand in His presence!

Shalom to your home Loved One,


See and listen below to a song forwarded by Mandi Lisa Gibb a young and loving Torah Keeper- (From South Africa?) ENJOY!

We cannot hide from Him; He knows us far too well; Psalm 139:1-4; 13-14 You have searched me & known me. You know my sitting down, and my rising up; you understand my thought from afar off. You sift my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. For not a word is on my tongue, but, lo, O Yahweh, You know it all. Jeremiah 1:5 I knew you before I formed you in the belly; and before you came out of the womb, I sanctified you. Is 44:2 ...Yahweh, who made you and formed you from the womb. Blessings & Shalom Mandi-Lisa
