Shabbat Shalom Loved One!
 I have again included Matthew Nolan’s study which is nearly identical to the message Yahweh gave me starting back in 2008 and continuing to this day…this man does it better (In my opinion) and I really enjoy his teachings- here’s the link:
Why we are on a different schedule of the Torah Cycle than the mainstream and the Orthodox. For me it is about restoration of all things- explanation is continued at end of this week’s study…
Forgiveness---Is there anyone YOU and I need to forgive still? We must get rid of unbelief and lack of forgiveness blocks that process! Let’s release all offense to YHWH- who alone is capable of being the JUDGE! We bless those that curse us and pray for those that do all manner of evil against us! We release them that offend and it actually releases us! HalleluYAH! If we will speak a blessing instead of operating in the natural or flesh realm; we can overcome because we are breaking hasatan’s cycle of hate and curse for curse.
I want to once again warn us about this issue- FORGIVING OFFENSES it is essential for our individual break thru so necessary today.  I have seen way too often un-forgiveness bring strife and heartache—often when someone just cannot seem to get healed- if we deal with un-forgiveness—Yahweh will heal them quickly, sometimes instantly! Seems our King is very serious about our obeying on this issue. What did Yahshua warn us about while teaching us HOW we are to pray? A portion of The Lord’s Prayer is forgive us AS we forgive those that trespass against us. Then just after the prayer He warns us…IF we will not forgive others—Father will NOT forgive us. YIKES! That means we are hell bound with sins—a curse for disobedience. This is a no-brainer LOVED ONE—as believers and followers of our KING- WE FORGIVE- ALWAYS! Let’s Look…
Here’s why forgiveness is NECESSARY and why we MUST humble ourselves and submit to YHWH!
(Mat 6:9)  “This, then, is the way you should pray: ‘Our Father who is in the heavens, let Your Name be set-apart, (Mat 6:10) let your reign come, let your desire (will) be done on earth as it is in heaven. (Mat 6:11)  ‘Give us today our daily bread. (Provision) (Mat 6:12)  ‘And forgive us our debts, ***as we forgive our debtors. *** (Mat 6:13) ‘And do not lead us into trial, 1 but deliver us from the wicked one – because yours is the reign and the power and the esteem, forever. Amĕn.’ Footnote: 1See 26:41. (Mat 6:14)  “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father shall also forgive you. (Mat 6:15)  “But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither shall your Father forgive your trespasses.
(Hebrews 3:7) Therefore, as the Set-apart Spirit says, Today, if you hear His voice, (Hebrews 3:8) do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, in the day of trial in the wilderness, (Hebrews 3:9) where your fathers tried me, proved me, and saw My works forty years. (Hebrews 3:10)  “Therefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, ‘They always go astray in their heart, and they have not known my ways.’ (Hebrews 3:11)  “As I swore in my wrath, ‘If they shall enter into my rest...’ ”1 Footnote: 1 Ps. 95:7-11. (Hebrews 3:12)  Look out, brothers, lest there be in any of you a wicked heart of unbelief in falling away from the living Elohim, (Hebrews 3:13) but encourage one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened by the deceivableness of sin. (Hebrews 3:14)  For we have become partakers of Messiah if we hold fast the beginning of our trust firm to the end, (Hebrews 3:15) while it is said, Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” (Hebrews 3:16)  For whom, having heard, rebelled? Was it not all who came out of Mitsrayim, led by Mosheh? (Hebrews 3:17)  And with who was He grieved forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness? (Hebrews 3:18)  And to whom did He swear that they would not enter into His rest, but to those who did not obey? (Hebrews 3:19)  So we see that they were unable to enter in because of unbelief.
Why is it so important that you and I overcome our fears and trials?
(Rev 21:7)  He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his Elohim, and he shall be my son. (Rev 21:8)  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
We are not under condemnation Loved One- hasatan alone is condemned and he purposes to put on us- the death and condemnation pronounced on him…
Are we fearful? YHWH did not give us a spirit of fear… (2Ti 1:7)  For Elohim has not given us a spirit of cowardice (Fear), but of power and of love and of self-control (Sound mind).
We must clean up and make ourselves ready as His BRIDE and allow Him to make us who were once DRY BONES to become the restored! We cannot follow those of various religious systems who are described here as this sounds a lot like modern Churchianity: (Ezekiel 22:26) "Her priests have done violence to my law (Torah/Instructions) and have profaned my holy things; they have made no distinction between the holy and the profane, and they have not taught the difference between the unclean and the clean; and they hide their eyes from my Sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.” (He said MY Sabbaths- seems we can’t pick our own)
It is our destiny to seek Him with all our hearts, soul, and body and walk in His glory realm; His mercy, compassion, provision, protection and power! (Jeremiah 29:11)  ‘For I know the plans I am planning for you,’ declares יהוה, ‘plans of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and expectancy. (Jeremiah 29:12)  Then you shall call on me, and shall come and pray to me, and I shall listen to you. (Jeremiah 29:13)  And you shall seek me, and shall find me, when you search for me with all your heart1. Footnote: 1Dt. 4:29, Joel 2:12. (Jeremiah 29:14)  And I shall be found by you,’ declares יהוה, ‘and I shall turn back your captivity, and shall gather you from all the gentiles and from all the places where I have driven you, declares יהוה. And I shall bring you back to the place from which I have exiled you.’  (Gen 13:17)  "Arise, walk about the land through its length and breadth; for I will give it to you." (Eph 5:14)  That is why He says, “Arise, wake up you who sleep, and arise from the dead, and Messiah shall shine on you.” (Isa 60:1)  Arise and shine, for your light has come! And the esteem (glory) of יהוה has risen upon you.
I encourage you again to please consider YHWH’s POWER TWINS for overcoming fear and the schemes of our enemy. Again, remember all things are possible for YHWH, the only reason they aren’t for you and I is UNBELIEF!
Unbelief or belief is the real TOPIC in the Scriptures spoken by Messiah Yahshua! What gets rid of our unbelief? PRAYER AND FASTING according to Yahshua- YHWH’S POWER TWINS! If we really want our prayers answered we must be willing to do YHWH’s requirements. If we really care about our loved ones we will seek YHWH’s face with prayer and fasting and quit worrying…Yahshua promises in Revelation to throw the fearful (worriers) into hell with the adulterers, murderers etc. Why? Because, if that is who we become under great fiery trials we have trusted the power of hasatan to do us harm, more than the power of YHWH to deliver us! Could this apply to you and me?  NOT IF we pray and fast and overcome! So let’s be busy about our Father’s business and do it!  Remember; Yahshua’s instructions are Hebrews or Hebrews thought. It is not about mental assent like Greek thought. It is about being a doer of the word and not a hearer only deceiving ourselves. It is She’mah O’ Israel or HEAR AND OBEY!  Let’s learn to fast and pray and remove our unbelief!
Loved One- CONSIDER: Jacob’s Trouble is OUR TROUBLE AND TESTS! (And we are learning we can overcome all plans of hell!)
(Not the Jews only trouble-ALL Israel- especially 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.”
Last few weeks we’ve discussed: WE NEED HIS POWER TO OVERCOME and we still do! WE MUST DEVELOP INTO OVER COMERS! Remember also the importance of not fearing and the provisions YHWH has made for us to be over comers! We considered the power of our words agreeing with Him and how intimacy in worship brings His presence because He inhabits the praises of His people and being filled with His Ruach! (Pro 18:21)  Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those loving it eat its fruit!  BUT…we must be Doers of the word or in other words TAKE ACTION.
Here’s our prayer Yah suggests for us to make below- Our Words direct us! Start today hiding the Word of YHWH in your heart-memorize some Scripture daily! Use this prayer!
(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!
Once again, let’s turn our hearts to this week’s Torah Cycle:
This week’s Torah Scriptures: Vayagash “And he drew near”
Genesis 44:18- 47:27; Bonus- Ezekiel 37:1-14; Ezekiel 37:15-28; Luke 6:9-16;
Shadow Picture- Hardship and famine brings forth intimacy in prayer and US changing!
(Gen 44:18)  And Yehuḏah came near to him and said, “O my master, please let your servant speak a word in my master’s hearing, and do not let your displeasure burn against your servant, for you are like Pharaoh. (Gen 44:19)  “My master asked his servants, saying, ‘Have you a father or a brother?’ (Gen 44:20)  “And we said to my master, ‘We have a father, an old man, and a young child of his old age and his brother is dead, and he alone is left of his mother’s children, and his father loves him.’ (Gen 44:21)  “And you said to your servants, ‘Bring him down to me, and let me set my eyes on him.’ (Gen 44:22)  “And we said to my master, ‘The boy is not able to leave his father, for if he leaves his father, his father shall die.’ (Gen 44:23)  “But you said to your servants, ‘Unless your youngest brother comes down with you, you do not see my face again.’ (Gen 44:24)  “And it came to be, when we went up to your servant my father, that we told him the words of my master. (Gen 44:25)  “And our father said, ‘Go back and buy us a little food.’ (Gen 44:26)  “But we said, ‘We are not able to go down. If our youngest brother is with us, then we shall go down, for we are not able to see the man’s face unless our youngest brother is with us.’ (Gen 44:27)  “Then your servant my father said to us, ‘You know that my wife bore me two sons, (Gen 44:28) and the one went out from me, and I said, “Truly, he is torn, torn to pieces!” And I have not seen him since. (Gen 44:29)  ‘And if you take this one from me too, and harm comes to him, you shall bring down my grey hair with evil to the grave.’ (Gen 44:30)  “And now, if I come to your servant my father and the boy is not with us – since his own life is bound up in his life – (Gen 44:31)  then it shall be, when he sees that the boy is not with us, that he shall die. So your servants shall bring down the grey hair of your servant our father with evil to the grave. (Gen 44:32)  “For your servant went guaranty for the boy to my father, saying, ‘If I do not bring him back to you, then I shall be a sinner before my father forever.’ (Gen 44:33)  “And now, please let your servant remain instead of the boy as a slave to my master, and let the boy go up with his brothers. (Gen 44:34)  “For how do I go up to my father if the boy is not with me, lest I see the evil that would come upon my father?”
(Gen 45:1)  And Yosĕph was unable to restrain himself before all those who stood by him, and he called out, “Have everyone go out from me!” So no one stood with him while Yosĕph made himself known to his brothers. (Gen 45:2)  And he wept aloud, and the Mitsrites and the house of Pharaoh heard it. (Gen 45:3)  And Yosĕph said to his brothers, “I am Yosĕph, is my father still alive?” But his brothers were unable to answer him, for they trembled before him. (Gen 45:4)  Then Yosĕph said to his brothers, “Please come near to me.” And when they came near, he said, “I am Yosĕph your brother, whom you sold into Mitsrayim. (Gen 45:5)  “And now, do not be grieved nor displeased with yourselves because you sold me here, for Elohim sent me before you to preserve life. (Gen 45:6)  “For two years now the scarcity of food has been in the land, and there are still five years in which there is neither plowing nor harvesting. (Gen 45:7)  “And Elohim sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant in the earth, and to give life to you by a great escape. (Gen 45:8)  “So then, you did not send me here, but Elohim. And He has set me for a father to Pharaoh, and master of his entire house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Mitsrayim. (Gen 45:9)  “Hurry and go up to my father, and say to him, ‘Thus says your son Yosĕph, “Elohim has made me master of all Mitsrayim. Come down to me, do not delay. (Gen 45:10)  “And you shall dwell in the land of Goshen, and be near to me, you and your children, your children’s children, your flocks and your herds, and all that you have. (Gen 45:11)  “And I shall provide for you there, lest you and your household, and all that you have, come to poverty, because five years of scarcity of food are still to come.” ’ (Gen 45:12) “And look, your eyes and the eyes of my brother Binyamin see that it is my mouth that speaks to you. (Gen 45:13)  “And you shall inform my father of all my esteem in Mitsrayim, and of all that you have seen. And you shall hurry and bring my father down here.” (Gen 45:14)  And he fell on his brother Binyamin’s neck and wept, and Binyamin wept on his neck. (Gen 45:15)  And he kissed all his brothers and wept over them, and after that his brothers spoke with him. (Gen 45:16)  And the report of it was heard by the house of Pharaoh, saying, “The brothers of Yosĕph have come.” And it was good in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of his servants. (Gen 45:17)  And Pharaoh said to Yosĕph, “Say to your brothers, ‘Do this: Load your beasts and go, enter the land of Kenaʽan, (Gen 45:18) and take your father and your households and come to me, and I give you the best of the land of Mitsrayim, and you eat the fat of the land. (Gen 45:19)  ‘And you, you have been commanded, do these: Take wagons out of the land of Mitsrayim for your little ones and your wives. And you shall bring your father, and come. (Gen 45:20)  ‘And do not be concerned about your goods, for the best of all the land of Mitsrayim is yours.’ ” (Gen 45:21) And the sons of Yisra’ĕl did so. And Yosĕph gave them wagons, according to the command of Pharaoh, and he gave them food for the journey. (Gen 45:22)  He gave to all of them, to each man, changes of garments, but to Binyamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver and five changes of garments. (Gen 45:23)  And he sent to his father this: ten donkeys loaded with the best of Mitsrayim, and ten female donkeys loaded with grain, and bread, and food for his father for the journey. (Gen 45:24)  So he sent his brothers away, and they left. And he said to them, “Do not quarrel along the way.” (Gen 45:25)  And they went up out of Mitsrayim, and came to the land of Kenaʽan to Yaʽaqoḇ their father. (Gen 45:26)  And they told him, saying, “Yosĕph is still alive, and he is governor over all the land of Mitsrayim.” And Yaʽaqoḇ’s heart ceased, for he did not believe them. (Gen 45:27)  But when they spoke to him all the words which Yosĕph had spoken to them, and when he saw the wagons which Yosĕph had sent to transport him, the spirit of Yaʽaqoḇ their father revived.  (Gen 45:28)  And Yisra’ĕl said, “Enough! My son Yosĕph is still alive. Let me go and see him before I die.”
Hearing Torah (Instructions) from Heaven- Hear and OBEY!
(Gen 46:1)  And Yisra’ĕl set out with all that he had, and came to Be’ĕrsheḇa, and brought offerings to the Elohim of his father Yitsḥaq. (Gen 46:2)  And Elohim spoke to Yisra’ĕl in the visions of the night, and said, “Yaʽaqoḇ, Yaʽaqoḇ!” And he said, “Here I am.” (Gen 46:3)  And He said, “I am the Ěl, Elohim of your father. Do not be afraid to go down to Mitsrayim, for I shall make you there into a great nation. (Gen 46:4)  “I myself am going down with you to Mitsrayim and I myself shall certainly bring you up again. And let Yosĕph put his hand on your eyes.” (Gen 46:5)  And Yaʽaqoḇ rose up from Be’ĕrsheḇa. And the sons of Yisra’ĕl brought their father Yaʽaqoḇ, and their little ones, and their wives, in the wagons which Pharaoh had sent to transport him. (Gen 46:6)  And they took their livestock and their property which they had acquired in the land of Kenaʽan, and came into Mitsrayim, Yaʽaqoḇ and all his seed with him. (Gen 46:7)  His sons and his sons’ sons, his daughters and his sons’ daughters, and all his seed he brought with him to Mitsrayim. (Gen 46:8)  And these were the names of the children of Yisra’ĕl, Yaʽaqoḇ and his sons, who came into Mitsrayim: Re’uḇĕn was Yaʽaqoḇ’s first-born. (Gen 46:9)  And the sons of Re’uḇĕn: Ḥanoḵ, and Pallu, and Ḥetsron, and Karmi. (Gen 46:10)  And the sons of Shimʽon: Yemu’ĕl, and Yamin, and Ohaḏ, and Yaḵin, and Tsoḥar, and Sha’ul, son of a Kenaʽanite woman. (Gen 46:11)  And the sons of Lĕwi: Gĕreshon, Qehath, and Merari. (Gen 46:12)  And the sons of Yehuḏah: Ěr, and Onan, and Shĕlah, and Perets, and Zeraḥ – but Ěr and Onan died in the land of Kenaʽan. And the sons of Perets were Ḥetsron and Ḥamul. (Gen 46:13)  And the sons of Yissasḵar: Tola, and Puwʽah, and Yoḇ, and Shimron. (Gen 46:14)  And the sons of Zeḇulun: Sereḏ, and Ělon, and Yaḥle’ĕl. (Gen 46:15)  These were the sons of Lĕ’ah, whom she bore to Yaʽaqoḇ in Paddan Aram, with his daughter Dinah. All the beings, his sons and his daughters, were thirty-three. (Gen 46:16)  And the sons of Gaḏ: Tsiphyon and Ḥaggi, Shuni and Etsbon, Ěri and Aroḏi, and Arĕli. (Gen 46:17)  And the sons of Ashĕr: Yimnah, and Yishwah, and Yishwi, and Beriʽah, and Seraḥ, their sister. And the sons of Beriʽah: Ḥeḇer and Malki’ĕl. (Gen 46:18)  These were the sons of Zilpah, whom Laḇan gave to Lĕ’ah his daughter. And these she bore to Yaʽaqoḇ: sixteen beings. (Gen 46:19)  The sons of Raḥĕl, Yaʽaqoḇ’s wife: Yosĕph and Binyamin. (Gen 46:20)  And to Yosĕph in the land of Mitsrayim were born Menashsheh and Ephrayim, whom Asenath, the daughter of Poti-Pherah priest of On, bore to him. (Gen 46:21)  And the sons of Binyamin: Belah, and Beḵer, and Ashbĕl, Gĕra and Naʽaman, Ěḥi and Rosh, Muppim and Ḥuppim, and Ard. (Gen 46:22)  These were the sons of Raḥĕl who were born to Yaʽaqoḇ: fourteen beings in all. (Gen 46:23)  And the son of Dan: Ḥushim. (Gen 46:24)  And the sons of Naphtali: Yaḥtse’ĕl, and Guni, and Yĕtser, and Shillĕm. (Gen 46:25)  These were the sons of Bilhah, whom Laḇan gave to Raḥĕl his daughter, and she bore these to Yaʽaqoḇ: seven beings in all. (Gen 46:26)  All the beings that went with Yaʽaqoḇ to Mitsrayim, who came from his body, besides Yaʽaqoḇ’s sons’ wives, were sixty-six beings in all. (Gen 46:27)  And the sons of Yosĕph who were born to him in Mitsrayim were two beings. All the beings of the house of Yaʽaqoḇ who went to Mitsrayim were seventy. (Gen 46:28)  And he sent Yehuḏah before him to Yosĕph, to point out before him the way to Goshen. And they came to the land of Goshen. (Gen 46:29)  And Yosĕph made ready his chariot and went up to Goshen to meet his father Yisra’ĕl. And he appeared to him, and fell on his neck and wept on his neck a long time. (Gen 46:30)  And Yisra’ĕl said to Yosĕph, “Now let me die, since I have seen your face, that you are still alive.” (Gen 46:31)  And Yosĕph said to his brothers and to his father’s household, “I am going up to inform Pharaoh, and say to him, ‘My brothers and those of my father’s house, who were in the land of Kenaʽan, have come to me. (Gen 46:32)  ‘And the men are shepherds, that they have been men of livestock, and they have brought their flocks and their herds, and all that they have.’ (Gen 46:33)  “And it shall be, when Pharaoh calls you and says, ‘What is your occupation?’ (Gen 46:34) that you shall say, ‘Your servants have been men of livestock from our youth even till now, both we and also our fathers,’ so that you dwell in the land of Goshen, for every shepherd is an abomination to the Mitsrites.”
 (Gen 47:1)  Then Yosĕph went and spoke to Pharaoh, and said, “My father and my brothers, their flocks and their herds and all that they possess, have come from the land of Kenaʽan. And see, they are in the land of Goshen.” (Gen 47:2)  And he took five men from among his brothers and presented them to Pharaoh. (Gen 47:3)  And Pharaoh said to his brothers, “What is your occupation?” And they said to Pharaoh, “Your servants are shepherds, both we and also our fathers.” (Gen 47:4)  And they said to Pharaoh, “We have come to dwell in the land, because there is no pasture for your servant’s flocks, for the scarcity of food is severe in the land of Kenaʽan. And now, please let your servants dwell in the land of Goshen.” (Gen 47:5)  And Pharaoh spoke to Yosĕph, saying, “Your father and your brothers have come to you. (Gen 47:6)  “The land of Mitsrayim is before you. Settle your father and brothers in the best of the land; let them dwell in the land of Goshen. And if you know of capable men among them, then make them chief herdsmen over my livestock.” (Gen 47:7)  And Yosĕph brought in his father Yaʽaqoḇ and set him before Pharaoh. And Yaʽaqoḇ blessed Pharaoh. (Gen 47:8)  And Pharaoh said to Yaʽaqoḇ, “How old are you?” (Gen 47:9)  And Yaʽaqoḇ said to Pharaoh, “The days and the years of my sojourning are one hundred and thirty years. Few and evil have been the days of the years of my life, and they have not reached the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their sojourning’s.” (Gen 47:10)  And Yaʽaqoḇ blessed Pharaoh, and went out from before Pharaoh. (Gen 47:11)  So Yosĕph settled his father and his brothers, and gave them a possession in the land of Mitsrayim, in the best of the land, in the land of Raʽmeses, as Pharaoh had commanded.  (Gen 47:12)  And Yosĕph provided his father, and his brothers, and his entire father’s household with bread for the mouth of the little ones.
Scarcity will also allow us restoration and intimacy with our Father.
(Gen 47:13)  Now there was no bread in all the land, because the scarcity of food was very severe, and the land of Mitsrayim and all the land of Kenaʽan became exhausted from the scarcity of food. (Gen 47:14)  And Yosĕph gathered up all the silver that was found in the land of Mitsrayim and in the land of Kenaʽan, for the grain which they bought. And Yosĕph brought the silver into Pharaoh’s house. (Gen 47:15)  And when the silver was all spent in the land of Mitsrayim and in the land of Kenaʽan, all the Mitsrites came to Yosĕph and said, “Give us bread, for why should we die in your presence? For the silver is gone!” (Gen 47:16)  And Yosĕph said, “Give your livestock, and I give you bread for your livestock, if the silver is gone.” (Gen 47:17)  So they brought their livestock to Yosĕph, and Yosĕph gave them bread in exchange for the horses, and for the flocks they owned, and for the herds they owned, and for the donkeys. Thus he fed them with bread in exchange for all their livestock that year. (Gen 47:18)  And when that year had ended, they came to him the next year and said to him, “We do not hide from my master that our silver is all spent, and my master also has the livestock we owned. There has not any been left before my master but our bodies and our lands. (Gen 47:19)  “Why should we die before your eyes, both we and our land? Buy us and our land for bread, and let us and our land be servants of Pharaoh. And give us seed, and let us live and not die, and let the land not lie waste.” (Gen 47:20)  And Yosĕph bought the entire land of Mitsrayim for Pharaoh, because every man of the Mitsrites sold his field, because the scarcity of food was severe upon them. And the land came to be Pharaoh’s. (Gen 47:21)  And as for the people, he moved them into the cities, from one end of the borders of Mitsrayim to the other end. (Gen 47:22)  Only the ground of the priests he did not buy, for the priests had portions allotted to them by Pharaoh, and they ate their portions which Pharaoh gave them. Therefore they did not sell their ground. (Gen 47:23)  And Yosĕph said to the people, “Look, I have bought you and your land today for Pharaoh. Look, here is seed for you, and you shall sow the land. (Gen 47:24)  “And it shall be that in the harvest you shall give one-fifth to Pharaoh. And four-fifths is your own, as seed for the field and for your food, for those of your households and as food for your little ones.” (Gen 47:25)  And they said, “You have saved our lives. Let us find favor in the eyes of my master, and we shall become Pharaoh’s servants.” (Gen 47:26)  And Yosĕph made it a law over the land of Mitsrayim to this day, that Pharaoh should have one-fifth, except for the ground of the priests only, which did not become Pharaoh’s. (Gen 47:27)  And Yisra’ĕl dwelt in the land of Mitsrayim, in the land of Goshen. And they had possessions there and bore fruit and increased exceedingly.
BONUS READ We ARE the DRY BONES coming to life here! He really will bring us back to His land of Promise- ISRAEL!
(Ezekiel 37:1)  The hand of יהוה was upon me and took me out by the Spirit of יהוה, and set me down in the midst of the valley. And it was filled with bones. (Ezekiel 37:2)  And He made me pass among them, all around, and see, there were very many on the surface of the valley, and see, they were very dry. (Ezekiel 37:3)  And He said to me, “Son of man, would these bones live?” And I said, “O Master יהוה, you know.” (Ezekiel 37:4)  Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and you shall say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of יהוה! (Ezekiel 37:5)  ‘Thus said the Master יהוה to these bones, “See, I am bringing into you a spirit, and you shall live. (Ezekiel 37:6)  “And I shall put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, and cover you with skin and put a spirit in you, and you shall live. And you shall know that I am יהוה.” ’ ” (Ezekiel 37:7) and I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I prophesied, there was a noise, and there was a rattling. And the bones came together, bone to bone. (Ezekiel 37:8)  And I looked and saw sinews and flesh came upon them, and skin covered them, but there was no spirit in them. (Ezekiel 37:9)  He then said to me, “Prophesy to the spirit, prophesy, son of man, and you shall say to the spirit, ‘Thus said the Master יהוה, “Come from the four winds, O spirit, and breathe on these slain, so that they live.” ’ ” (Ezekiel 37:10) and I prophesied as He commanded me, and the spirit came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, a very great army. (Ezekiel 37:11)  And He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are all the house of Yisra’ĕl. See, they say, ‘Our bones are dry, our expectancy has perished, and we ourselves have been cut off!’ (Ezekiel 37:12)  “Therefore prophesy, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus said the Master יהוה, “See, O My people, I am opening your graves, and shall bring you up from your graves, and shall bring you into the land of Yisra’ĕl. (Ezekiel 37:13)  “And you shall know that I am יהוה, when I open your graves, O My people, and bring you up from your graves. (Ezekiel 37:14)  “And I shall put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I shall settle you in your own land. And you shall know that I יהוה have spoken, and I have done it,” declares יהוה.’ ”
Restoration of the ten Northern Tribes that appear like pagan sun god worshippers (Ephraim- Joseph of Egyptians youngest who was prophesied to be a mighty multitude at the end of days- Yep- that’s us!) restored to Judah, Levi ad parts of Benjamin to become the end time witnesses of Revelation- YEP- ALL OF US (Who determine in our hearts and willingly obey Him) will be used in His hands!
(Ezekiel 37:15) And the word of יהוה came to me, saying, (Ezekiel 37:16) “And you, son of man, take a stick for yourself and write on it, ‘For Yehuḏah and for the children of Yisra’ĕl, his companions.’ Then take another stick and write on it, For Yosĕph, the stick of Ephrayim, and for all the house of Yisra’ĕl, his companions.’ (Ezekiel 37:17)  Then bring them together for yourself into one stick, and they shall become one in your hand. (Ezekiel 37:18)  “And when the children of your people speak to you, saying, ‘Won’t you show us what you mean by these?’ (Ezekiel 37:19) say to them, ‘Thus said the Master יהוה, “See, I am taking the stick of Yosĕph, which is in the hand of Ephrayim, and the tribes of Yisra’ĕl, his companions. And I shall give them unto him, with the stick of Yehuḏah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in my hand.” ’ (Ezekiel 37:20) “And the sticks on which you write shall be in your hand before their eyes. (Ezekiel 37:21)  “And speak to them, ‘Thus said the Master יהוה, “See, I am taking the children of Yisra’ĕl from among the gentiles, wherever they have gone, and shall gather them from all around, and I shall bring them into their land. (Ezekiel 37:22)  “And I shall make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Yisra’ĕl. And one sovereign shall be sovereign over them all, and let them no longer be two nations, and let them no longer be divided into two reigns.
Hallelu-Yah- Shabbat was truly made for man’s benefit (All Torah is) ad man was not made for Shabbat!
(Luke 6:9)  Then יהושע said to them, “I ask you, is it right to do well on the Sabbath, or to do evil, to save life or to destroy it?” (Luke 6:10)  And looking around at them all, He said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” And he did so, and his hand was restored sound as the other. (Luke 6:11)  But they were filled with folly, and were speaking with one another what they should do to יהושע. (Luke 6:12)  And in those days it came to be that He went out to the mountain to pray, and was spending the night in prayer to Elohim. (Luke 6:13)  And when it became day, He called near His taught ones and chose from them twelve, whom He also named emissaries: (Luke 6:14) Shimʽon whom He also named Kĕpha, and his brother Andri, Yaʽaqoḇ and Yoḥanan, Philip and Bartholomi, (Luke 6:15) Mattithyahu and T’oma, Yaʽaqoḇ the son of Alphai and Shimʽon, the one called the Ardent One, (Luke 6:16) Yehuḏah the son of Yaʽaqoḇ and Yehuḏah from Qerioth who also became the betrayer.
We are coming apart from Babylonian paganism as we “Come apart (Out of her) from the whore my people so you take no part of her plagues!” What a reward FROM COMING APART FROM PAGAN PRACTICES AND BECOME His promised covenant people!
(Ezekiel 37:23)  “And they shall no longer defile themselves with their idols, nor with their disgusting matters, nor with any of their transgressions. And I shall save them from all their dwelling places in which they have sinned, and I shall cleanse them. And they shall be my people, and I am their Elohim, (Ezekiel 37:24) while Dawiḏ my servant is sovereign over them. And they shall all have one shepherd and walk in my right-rulings and guard my laws, and shall do them. (Ezekiel 37:25)  And they shall dwell in the land that I have given to Yaʽaqoḇ My servant, where your fathers dwelt. And they shall dwell in it, they and their children and their children’s children, forever, and my servant Dawiḏ be their prince forever. (Ezekiel 37:26)  “And I shall make a covenant of peace with them – an everlasting covenant it is with them. And I shall place them and increase them, and shall place my set-apart place in their midst, forever. Ezekiel 37:27) “And My Dwelling Place shall be over them. And I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be my people. (Ezekiel 37:28)  “And the gentiles shall know that I, יהוה, am setting Yisra’ĕl apart, when my set-apart place is in their midst – forever.” ’ ”

Continued explanation of 2012-13 Torah Cycle restart at beginning of monthsIt is about YHWH restoring all things which sometimes means we are walking alone. I start over annually when YHWH’s year starts over; this is not to say that I am correct and others are wrong, I just happen to believe we will never challenge our older brother Judah by following his traditions. I expect Judah will be moved by our obedience to His Torah (Words of Scripture) and seeing YHWH’s signs and wonders following our obedience- Does the statement above mean we are not to grab the tzitzit of Yehuda and take hold and learn from them? Of course not, we absolutely should learn of them and from them- just not ingest and keep that which is traditions that go against His words! Especially since we are the ten (Ten scattered northern tribes scattered for Easter and sun god day worship which parallels closely as a pig slop eating prodigal brother)
Let’s look; (Zechariah 8:22) ‘And many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek יהוה of hosts in Yerushalayim, and to pray before יהוה.’ (Zechariah 8:23)  “Thus said יהוה of hosts, ‘In those days (Now? YES and in the future also!) Ten men (10 scattered northern tribes called Ephraim and Israel) from all languages of the nations take hold, yea, they shall take hold of the edge of the garment of a man, a Yehuḏite1, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that Elohim is with you.” ’ ” Footnote: 1John 4:22.
