Shabbat Shalom Loved One!  
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…
Loved One- Billie and I ask if you would you utter a quick prayer for our oldest grandson who just graduated last night from High School? That Yahweh would direct, protect, prepare, provide for and use mightily in his life as he moves 1000’s of miles off to college? Christian Kendall is bright and full of promise—we just want to make sure he is launched and stays on course for Yahweh! Thanks—you guys are awesome lovers of Yahweh!
Last few weeks we’ve discussed: WE NEED HIS POWER TO OVERCOME and we still do! Specifically; last week we addressed the absolute and vital need for yielding our tongues to the Ruach and praying in His Set Apart Spirit! He is no respecter of persons- everyone CAN or better put MAY pray in the Ruach—it is true that not everyone will. This praying in the Ruach is an act of your and my will as Sha’ul proclaimed “I” speak in tongues more than you all…- NOTE an act of his will. This is vastly different from one of the 9 gifts of the Ruach where there MUST be interpretation and is for the benefit of others—so there must be interpretation with the gift of tongues- it is an act of benefiting others! PRAYING IN THE RUACH is empowering you to have Him praying for you and building up your faith and trust in Him—no matter what the overwhelming storm looks like!  It is for building up your own Set Apart Spirit and becoming an OVERCOMER! Remember 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 18:21Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those loving it eat its fruit! 
DO NOT FEAR! OUR KING IS STILL SITTING ON THE THRONE!  (Rev 3:10)  'Because you have kept the word of my perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, (Comment: not a pre-tribulation rapture- but His assurance and protection through the storms) that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. (Rev 3:11)  'I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your crown. (Rev 3:12)  'He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my Elohim, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of my Elohim, and the name of the city of my Elohim, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my Elohim, and my new name. (Rev 3:13)  'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Ruach HaKodesh says to the assemblies.' (This is not a pre-tribulation rapture, He promises to protect and use us even in the fiery furnace- so let’s be usable!) Loved One, who are we really? Were we really born for such a time as this? Is this really the “End of the Age”?  These questions are being answered by unfolding events and by our testimony- that is what we say and what we do about these unfolding events.  We shall overcome by the Blood of the Lamb of YHWH and our Testimony or not overcome at all. All Creation is groaning for the sons and daughters of YHWH to manifest. Seems we will be tried by fire to see if we will walk by His Ruach (Spirit) or not.  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: (Ezek 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)
Are WE Laodicean’s?  Well… NOT if we were DRY BONES but as Ezekiel prophesied- and we are among those coming alive as His body. Note the three conditions of our warning from Yahshua below!
Why are these days so critical and we must truly repent in sackcloth and ashes so to speak? I believe we are in the last days Laodicean age that Yahshua warned us about: (Rev 3:14) "To the angel of the assembly in Laodicea write: The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of YHWH, says this: (Rev 3:15) 'I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. (Rev 3:16)  'Because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold; I’ll spit you out of my mouth. (Rev 3:17)  'Because you say, "I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing," and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked, (Rev 3:18)  I advise you to buy from me gold refined by fire (faith-believing- which is true riches) so that you may become rich, and white garments (Pure and undefiled robes of righteousness) so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve (spiritual eyes opened) to anoint your eyes so that you may see. (Rev 3:19)  'Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent. (Rev 3:20)  'Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with me. (Rev 3:21)  'He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with me on my throne, as I also overcame and sat down with my Father on His throne.
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.

As darkness gets darker on Planet Earth—and especially here in the USA- I encourage you also to NOW 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!

REVIEW- REVIEW- REVIEW: We’ve talked about this before but it seems to be set up by the Ruach (Holy Spirit) to absolutely discuss and remind ourselves about our need for break-through in our prayers just now.

Unbelief or belief is the real TOPIC in the following Scriptures spoken by Messiah Yahshua! What gets rid of our unbelief? PRAYER AND FASTING according to Yahshua! Let’s look closer at why we can believe that statement: (Mar 9:16) And He asked them, "What are you discussing with them?" (Mar 9:17)  And one of the crowd answered Him, "Teacher, I brought You my son, possessed with a spirit which makes him mute; (Mar 9:18)  and whenever it seizes him, it slams him to the ground and he foams at the mouth, and grinds his teeth and stiffens out. I told your disciples to cast it out, and they could not do it." (Mar 9:19)  And He *answered them and *said, "O unbelieving generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring him to me!" (Mar 9:20)  They brought the boy to Him. When he saw Him, immediately the spirit threw him into a convulsion, and falling to the ground, he began rolling around and foaming at the mouth. (Mar 9:21)  And He asked his father, "How long has this been happening to him?" And he said, "From childhood.
(Mar 9:22)  "It has often thrown him both into the fire and into the water to destroy him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us!" (Mar 9:23)  And Yahshua said to him, “‘if you can?' All things are possible to him who believes."  (Mar 9:24)  Immediately the boy's father cried out and said, "I do believe; help my unbelief.(Mar 9:25)  When Yahshua saw that a crowd was rapidly gathering, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, "You deaf and mute spirit, I command you, come out of him and do not enter him again." (Mar 9:26)  After crying out and throwing him into terrible convulsions, it came out; and the boy became so much like a corpse that most of them said, "He is dead!" (Mar 9:27)  But Yahshua took him by the hand and raised him; and he got up. (Mar 9:28)  When He came into the house, His disciples began questioning Him privately, "Why could we not drive it out?" (Looking in Matthew) (Mat 17:20)  And יהושע said to them, Because of your unbelief, for truly, I say to you, if you have belief as a mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it shall move. And no matter shall be impossible for you. (Mat 17:21)  “But this kind does not go out except through prayer and fasting.” So the topic is not some great demon, even the head of all demons must bow to the name. The problem and topic here is unbelief. We get rid of unbelief by prayer and fasting! Prayer AND Fasting, not prayer without fasting or fasting without prayer- THESE ARE 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 Hebraic or Hebrew 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- it is becoming clear that if not Jacob’s Trouble (Not the Jews only trouble-ALL Israel- especially us who claim being grafted in) certainly trouble anyway- especially worldwide economic change- 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” (Not likely- huh?) 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.”
Here’s our prayer Yah suggests 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!
(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 well, 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! (Pro 18:21Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those loving it eat its fruit.
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 (YES this means you and I) 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 believer’s and why we MUST have His power demonstrated!
(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 and now I can add prophetic correction hehe) 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); Please join as believers worldwide and let’s fast and pray and receive His INSTRUCTIONS and power loved one…that we may run the race well and finish our destinies- those works He prepared for us to do at the foundation of the Earth! WITH THAT DECISION CONFIRMED IN OUR SPIRITS; let’s turn our hearts to this week’s Torah Cycle:
This week’s Torah Scriptures: MIKETZ “At the End”

Genesis 41:11- 44:17; 1 Kings 3:15- 4:1; 1Kings 7:40-50; 1 Cor 2:1-5
(Gen 41:1)  And it came to be, at the end of two years’ time, that Pharaoh had a dream, and saw him standing by the river, (Gen 41:2) and saw seven cows coming up out of the river, fine looking and fat, and they fed amongst the reeds, (Gen 41:3) then saw seven other cows coming up after them out of the river, ugly and lean of flesh, and stood by the other cows on the bank of the river. (Gen 41:4)  And the ugly and lean of flesh cows ate up the seven fine looking and fat cows. Then Pharaoh awoke. (Gen 41:5)  And he slept and dreamed a second time and saw seven heads of grain coming up on one stalk, plump and good, (Gen 41:6)  and saw seven lean heads, scorched by the east wind, coming up after them. (Gen 41:7)  And the seven lean heads swallowed the seven plump and complete heads. Then Pharaoh awoke and saw it was a dream. (Gen 41:8)  And it came to be in the morning that his spirit was moved, and he sent and called for all the magicians of Mitsrayim and all its wise men. And Pharaoh related to them his dreams, but there was no one who could interpret them for Pharaoh. (Gen 41:9)  Then the chief cupbearer spoke to Pharaoh, saying, “I remember my crimes this day. (Gen 41:10)  “When Pharaoh was wroth with his servants, and put me in confinement in the house of the captain of the guard, both me and the chief baker, (Gen 41:11) each one of us dreamed a dream in one night, him and me. Each of us dreamed according to the interpretation of his own dream. (Gen 41:12)  “And there was with us a Heḇrew youth, a servant of the captain of the guard. And we related to him, and he interpreted our dreams for us. To each man he interpreted according to his own dream. (Gen 41:13)  “And it came to be, as he interpreted for us, so it came to be. He restored me to my office, and he hanged him.” (Gen 41:14)  Then Pharaoh sent and called Yosĕph, and they hurriedly brought him out of the dungeon. And he shaved and changed his garments, and came to Pharaoh. (Gen 41:15)  And Pharaoh said to Yosĕph, “I have dreamed a dream, and there is no one to interpret it. Now I myself have heard it said of you that you understand a dream, to interpret it.” (Gen 41:16)  And Yosĕph answered Pharaoh, saying, “It is not in me; let Elohim answer Pharaoh with peace.” (Gen 41:17)  And Pharaoh said to Yosĕph, “See, in my dream I stood on the bank of the river (Gen 41:18) and saw seven cows coming up out of the river, fine looking and fat, and they fed amongst the reeds, (Gen 41:19) then saw seven other cows coming up after them, poor and very ugly and lean of flesh, such ugliness as I have never seen in all the land of Mitsrayim. (Gen 41:20)  “And the lean of flesh and ugly cows ate up the first seven, the fat cows. (Gen 41:21)  “Yet when they had eaten them up, no one would have known that they had eaten them, for they were as ugly as at the beginning. Then I awoke. (Gen 41:22)  “Also, I looked in my dream and saw seven heads coming up on one stalk, complete and good, (Gen 41:23) then saw seven heads, withered, lean, scorched by the east wind, coming up after them. (Gen 41:24)  “And the lean heads swallowed the seven good heads. And I spoke to the magicians, but there was no one who could explain it to me.”

Dreams are still prophetic – ask the Ruach (Spirit) to guide you into all truth!
(Gen 41:25)  And Yosĕph said to Pharaoh, “The dream of Pharaoh is one. Elohim has shown Pharaoh what He is about to do: (Gen 41:26) “The seven good cows are seven years, and the seven good heads are seven years – it is one dream. (Gen 41:27)  “And the seven lean and ugly cows which came up after them are seven years, and the seven empty heads scorched by the east wind are seven years of scarcity of food. (Gen 41:28)  “This is the word which I spoke to Pharaoh: Elohim has shown Pharaoh what He is about to do. (Gen 41:29)  “See, seven years of great plenty are coming in all the land of Mitsrayim, (Gen 41:30)  but after them seven years of scarcity of food shall arise and all the plenty be forgotten in the land of Mitsrayim. And the scarcity of food shall destroy the land, (Gen 41:31) and the plenty shall not be remembered in the land, because of the scarcity of food following, for it is very severe. (Gen 41:32)  “And the dream was repeated to Pharaoh twice because the word is established by Elohim, and Elohim is hastening to do it. (Gen 41:33)  “And now, let Pharaoh look for a discerning and wise man, and set him over the land of Mitsrayim. (Gen 41:34)  “Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint overseers over the land, to take up one-fifth of the land of Mitsrayim in the seven years of plenty. (Gen 41:35)  “And let them gather all the food of those good years that are coming, and store up grain under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities. (Gen 41:36)  “And the food shall be for a store for the land for the seven years of scarcity of food which shall be in the land of Mitsrayim, and do not let the land be cut off by the scarcity of food.” (Gen 41:37)  And the word was good in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of all his servants. (Gen 41:38)  And Pharaoh said to his servants, “Could we find another like him, a man in whom is the Spirit of Elohim?” (Gen 41:39)  Then Pharaoh said to Yosĕph, “Since Elohim has shown you all this, there is no one as discerning and wise as you. (Gen 41:40)  “Be over my house, you yourself, and at your mouth all my people shall kiss – only in the throne I am greater than you.” (Gen 41:41)  And Pharaoh said to Yosĕph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Mitsrayim.” (Gen 41:42)  And Pharaoh took his seal-ring off his hand and put it on Yosĕph’s hand. And he dressed him in garments of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck. (Gen 41:43)  And he had him ride in the second chariot which he had. And they cried out before him, “Bow the knee!” And he set him over all the land of Mitsrayim. (Gen 41:44)  And Pharaoh said to Yosĕph, “I am Pharaoh, and without a word from you let no man lift his hand or foot in all the land of Mitsrayim.” (Gen 41:45)  And Pharaoh called Yosĕph’s name Zaphnath-Paʽnĕaḥ. And he gave him as a wife Asenath, the daughter of Poti-Pherah priest of On. And Yosĕph went out over all the land of Mitsrayim. (Gen 41:46)  Now Yosĕph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh Sovereign of Mitsrayim. And Yosĕph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Mitsrayim. (Gen 41:47)  And in the seven years of plenty the ground brought forth generously. (Gen 41:48)  And he gathered all the food of the seven years which were in the land of Mitsrayim, and laid up the food in the cities. He laid up in every city the food of the fields which surrounded them. (Gen 41:49)  Thus Yosĕph gathered very much grain, as the sand of the sea, until he ceased counting, for it was without number. (Gen 41:50)  And to Yosĕph were born two sons before the years of scarcity of food came, whom Asenath, the daughter of Poti-Pherah priest of On, bore to him. (Gen 41:51)  And Yosĕph called the name of the first-born Menashsheh, “For Elohim has made me forget all my toil and my entire father’s house.” (Gen 41:52)  And the name of the second he called Ephrayim, “For Elohim has caused me to bear fruit in the land of my affliction.” (Gen 41:53)  And the seven years of plenty which were in the land of Mitsrayim came to an end, (Gen 41:54)  and the seven years of scarcity of food began to come, as Yosĕph had said. And the scarcity of food was in all lands, but in all the land of Mitsrayim there was bread. (Gen 41:55)  But when all the land of Mitsrayim hungered, and the people cried to Pharaoh for bread, Pharaoh said to all the Mitsrites, “Go to Yosĕph, do whatever he says to you.” (Gen 41:56)  And the scarcity of food was over all the face of the earth, and Yosĕph opened all the storehouses and sold to the Mitsrites. And the scarcity of food was severe in the land of Mitsrayim. (Gen 41:57)  And all the earth came to Yosĕph in Mitsrayim to buy grain, because the scarcity of food was severe in all the earth.

YHWH always had direction for PROVISION and RESTORATION!
(Gen 42:1)  And when Yaʽaqoḇ saw that there was grain in Mitsrayim, Yaʽaqoḇ said to his sons, “Why do you look at each other?” (Gen 42:2)  And he said, “See, I have heard that there is grain in Mitsrayim. Go down to that place and buy for us there, and let us live and not die.” (Gen 42:3)  And Yosĕph’s ten brothers went down to buy grain in Mitsrayim. (Gen 42:4)  But Yaʽaqoḇ did not send Yosĕph’s brother Binyamin with his brothers, for he said, “Lest some harm come to him.” (Gen 42:5)  And the sons of Yisra’ĕl went to buy grain among those who journeyed, for the scarcity of food was in the land of Kenaʽan. (Gen 42:6)  And Yosĕph was the governor over the land, he was the one who sold to all the people of the land. And Yosĕph’s brothers came and bowed down before him with their faces to the earth. (Gen 42:7)  And Yosĕph saw his brothers and recognized them, but he acted as a stranger to them and spoke to them harshly, and said to them, “Where do you come from?” And they said, “From the land of Kenaʽan to buy food.” (Gen 42:8)  So Yosĕph recognized his brothers, but they did not recognize him. (Gen 42:9)  And Yosĕph remembered the dreams which he had dreamed about them, and said to them, “You are spies! You have come to see the nakedness of the land!” (Gen 42:10)  And they said to him, “No, my master, but your servants have come to buy food. (Gen 42:11)  “We are all one man’s sons, we are trustworthy, your servants are not spies.” (Gen 42:12)  But he said to them, “No, but you have come to see the nakedness of the land.” (Gen 42:13)  And they said, “Your servants are twelve brothers, the sons of one man in the land of Kenaʽan. And see, the youngest is with our father today, and one is no more.” (Gen 42:14)  And Yosĕph said to them, “It is as I spoke to you, saying, ‘You are spies!’ (Gen 42:15)  “By this you shall be proven: By the life of Pharaoh, you do not leave this place unless your youngest brother comes here. (Gen 42:16)  “Send one of you, and let him bring your brother, while you are kept in prison. So let your words be proven to see whether there is any truth in you, or else, by the life of Pharaoh, you are spies!” (Gen 42:17)  And he put them all together in prison for three days. (Gen 42:18)  Now Yosĕph said to them the third day, “Do this and live, for I fear Elohim: (Gen 42:19) “If you are trustworthy, let one of your brothers be confined to your prison house, and you, go, bring grain for the scarcity of food of your houses. (Gen 42:20)  “And bring your youngest brother to me, and let your words be confirmed, and you do not die.” And so they did. (Gen 42:21)  And they said to each other, “Truly, we are guilty concerning our brother, for we saw the distress of his life when he pleaded with us, yet we did not listen, that is why this distress has come upon us.” (Gen 42:22)  And Re’uḇĕn answered them, saying, “Did I not speak to you, saying, ‘Do not sin against the boy,’ and you would not listen? And see, his blood is now required of us.” (Gen 42:23)

(Gen 43:1)  But the scarcity of food was severe in the land. (Gen 43:2)  And it came to be, when they had eaten up the grain which they had brought from Mitsrayim that their father said to them, “Go back, buy us a little food.” (Gen 43:3)  But Yehuḏah spoke to him, saying, “The man vehemently warned us, saying, ‘You do not see my face unless your brother is with you.’ ” (Gen 43:4) “If you let our brother go with us, we go down and buy you food. (Gen 43:5)  “But if you do not let him go, we do not go down, because the man said to us, ‘You do not see my face unless your brother is with you.’ ” (Gen 43:6) And Yisra’ĕl said, “Why did you do evil to me to inform the man that you still had another brother?” (Gen 43:7)  And they said, “The man kept asking about us and our relatives, saying, ‘Is your father still alive? Have you another brother?’ And we informed him according to these words. How could we know that he would say, ‘Bring your brother down’?” (Gen 43:8)  And Yehuḏah said to Yisra’ĕl his father, “Send the boy with me, and let us arise and go, and live and not die, both we and you and also our little ones. (Gen 43:9)  “I myself shall stand guaranty for him – from my hand you are to require him. If I do not bring him back to you and set him before you, then let me bear the blame forever. (Gen 43:10)  “For if we had not delayed, truly by now we could have returned this second time.” (Gen 43:11)  And their father Yisra’ĕl said to them, “If so, then do this: Take some of the best fruit of the land in your vessels and bring a present down for the man, a little balm and a little honey, spices and myrrh, nuts and almonds. (Gen 43:12)  “And take double silver in your hand, and take back in your hand the silver that was returned in the mouth of your sacks. It could have been a mistake. (Gen 43:13)  “And take your brother, and arise, go back to the man. (Gen 43:14)  “And Ěl Shaddai give to you compassion before the man, so that he shall release your other brother and Binyamin. And I, if I am bereaved, I am bereaved!” (Gen 43:15)  And the men took that present and Binyamin, and they took double the amount of silver in their hand, and arose and went down to Mitsrayim, and stood before Yosĕph. (Gen 43:16)  And Yosĕph saw Binyamin with them, and said to the one over his house, “Bring the men home, and make a great slaughter, and prepare, for these men are to eat with me at noon.” (Gen 43:17)  And the man did as Yosĕph said, and the man brought the men into Yosĕph’s house. (Gen 43:18)  And the men were afraid because they were brought into Yosĕph’s house. And they said, “It is because of the silver, which was put back into our sacks the first time that we are brought in, to throw himself upon us and fall upon us, to take us as slaves, our donkeys too.” (Gen 43:19)  So they came near to the man over the house of Yosĕph, and spoke to him at the door of the house, (Gen 43:20) and said, “O my master, we indeed came down the first time to buy food, (Gen 43:21) but it came to be, when we came to the lodging place, that we opened our sacks and saw each man’s silver in the mouth of his sack, our silver in its weight. And we have brought it back in our hand. (Gen 43:22)  “And we have brought down other silver in our hands to buy food. We do not know who put our silver in our sacks.” (Gen 43:23)  But he said, “Peace be with you, do not be afraid. your Elohim and the Elohim of your father has given you treasure in your sacks – your silver had come to me!” And he brought Shimʽon out to them. (Gen 43:24)  And the man brought the men into Yosĕph’s house and gave them water, and they washed their feet. And he gave their donkeys fodder. (Gen 43:25)  And they made the present ready for Yosĕph’s coming at noon, for they heard that they were to eat there. (Gen 43:26)  And when Yosĕph came home, they brought him the present which was in their hand, into the house, and bowed down before him to the earth. (Gen 43:27)  And he asked them about their welfare, and said, “Is your father well, the old man of whom you spoke? Is he still alive?” (Gen 43:28)  And they said, “Your servant our father is in good health, he is still alive.” And they bowed their heads down and did obeisance. (Gen 43:29)  And he lifted his eyes and saw his brother Binyamin, his mother’s son, and said, “Is this your younger brother of whom you spoke to me?” And he said, “Elohim show favor to you, my son.”
