Shabbat Shalom Loved One! Torah Studies with translations Mighty is YHWH whose mercy endures forever as He restores all things! 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…
Our Creator is all about relationships- with each other and more importantly, our relationship with Yahshua and our Heavenly Father YHWH (Yahweh-Yahuah). Does everything that hangs on Moses and the Prophets come to mind?
(Mat 22:36)  “Teacher: which is the greatest command in the Torah?” (Mat 22:37)  And יהושע said to him, “‘you shall love יהוה your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your being, and with your entire mind.’ (Mat 22:38)  “This is the first and great command. (Mat 22:39)  “And the second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ (Mat 22:40)  “On these two commands hang all the Torah and the Prophets.”  Understand that the first four Commandments of Exodus 20 are about how YHWH declares how He wants to be loved and the next six tell us how to love our neighbor as ourselves.
Let’s take a closer look with our hearts, souls and bodies in mind of RELATIONSHIPS.  It appears to me that Yahweh’s winds are blowing even righteous trees. Everything (Especially relationships with others) and our Messiah Yahshua (Jesus)) that can be blown away and shaken away by the storms will be removed!  Yahshua states below;
(Mat 10:32)  “Everyone, therefore, who shall confess me before men, him I shall also confess before My Father who is in the heavens. (Mat 10:33)  “But whoever shall deny me before men, him I shall also deny before My Father who is in the heavens. (Mat 10:34)  “Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword, 1 Footnote: 1In Luke. 12:51 the word “division” is used, while “sword” has the same meaning here. (Mat 10:35)  for I have come to bring division, a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law – (Mat 10:36) and a man’s enemies are those of his own household.1 Footnote: 1Lk. 12:53, Mic. 7:6. (Mat 10:37)  “He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and he who loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.1 Footnote: 1See 19:29, Luke. 14:26. (Mat 10:38) “And he who does not take up his stake and follow after me is not worthy of me. (Mat 10:39)  “He who has found his life shall lose it, and he that has lost his life for my sake shall find it. (Mat 10:40)  He who receives you receives me, and he who receives me receives Him who sent me.
You may be wondering loved one, why in the Scripture above I underlined and bolded worthy of me. Here’s why; as worthiness or value is what makes relationships last forever- loved ones and us and our Heavenly father and us. Remember Esau would not obey- even his earthly father, much less the commandments; and Yahweh tells us He HATED him. Note how important esteeming our Elohim with simple obedience really is. If we SAY we love someone (Yes- especially YHWH) but show no actions that indicate- we are liars- maybe even to ourselves. (John 8:55)  “And you have not known Him, but I know Him. And if I say, ‘I do not know Him,’ I shall be like you, a liar. But I do know Him and I guard His Word.1 Footnote: 1See also 15:10.  (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 14:21)  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.”  Reminds me quickly about what James said (James 2:26) about belief/faith: For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works (action) is dead.
It appears YHWH is looking to see if we will put relationships in the correct order in obedience to Him and His word, or we will choose to base those relationships on our own experiences and ideas. No wonder he warns us to not lean on our own understanding, but in all our ways acknowledge Him and He will direct our paths. (Pro 3:5)  Trust in יהוה with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; (Pro 3:6) know Him in all your ways, and He makes all your paths straight. (Pro 3:7)  Do not be wise in your own eyes1; Fear יהוה and turn away from evil2. Footnotes: 1Isa. 5:21 2Job 28:28.  Understand that every relationship out of His order is IDOLATRY! (Spiritual adultery)
Obviously, if we do choose our own path we cannot yield and FOLLOW HIM! Every relationship will be tested for what it really is.  The storms are guaranteed to come to test us. (Mat 7:20)  “So then, by their fruits you shall know them – (Mat 7:21)Not everyone who says to me, ‘Master, Master,’ shall enter into the reign of the heavens (Forever), but he who is doing the desire of My Father in the heavens. (Mat 7:22)  “Many shall say to me in that day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and cast out demons in Your Name, and done many mighty works in Your Name?’ (Mat 7:23)  “And then I shall declare to them, ‘I never knew you, depart from e, you who work lawlessness!1 Footnote: 1 See v. 15. (Mat 7:24)  “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine, and does them, shall be like a wise man who built his house on the rock, (Mat 7:25) and the rain came down, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. (Mat 7:26)  “And everyone who hears these words of Mine, and does not do them, 1 shall be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand, Footnote: 1John 3:36. (Mat 7:27) and the rain came down, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat on that house, and it fell, and great was its fall.” (Comment: no victory in falling during the storm- due to disobedience of His Torah; which is our solid foundation)
Note below that the trap and trial coming is for all who dwell on the earth—we will be here (Not raptured away prior to this testing- please understand we will be tested to see if we are the Bride who has made ourselves ready or we love the world and what is “SEEN” more. The goal is to still be standing having escaped and endured producing much fruit for the Kingdom when He arrives at the LAST TRUMP (Feast of Trumpets) which is 10 days before Judgment Day (Yom Kippur) or also know as Atonement for those who repent during this 10 days of wrath- these times of trial will not come on us as a surprise- we are children of the light and we know the times and seasons but it will come on the world (them) suddenly (like a thief) and they will NOT escape! The weapons of our warfare are not carnal-fleshly, but they are mighty for winning. Our goal is to escape and endure- producing His fruit that remains! We are not to wrestle with flesh and blood- but speak His WORD; which is mighty for pulling down strongholds. This ability comes from drawing near to our Elohim through the shed blood of Yahshua, being filled with the Ruach HaKodesh (HOLY SPIRIT) and building up our most set apart faith by praying in His Spirit! Greater is He in us than those in the world! We must have trust like Elijah did when the soldiers were sent to arrest him—he spoke and they died- twice—but the third 100 sent ASKED- not ORDERED him to appear before the King! That’s what we need- relationship with our Heavenly Father and His son at His right hand as He commands His angels concerning us.
What can we do- what prayer should we really utter in desperation to our Heavenly Father? (Luke 21:31)  So you also, when you see these matters take place, know that the reign of Elohim is near. (Luke 21:32)  “Truly, I say to you, this generation shall by no means pass away till all shall have taken place. (Luke 21:33)  “The heaven and the earth shall pass away, but my words shall by no means pass away. (Luke 21:34)  “And take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down by gluttony, and drunkenness and worries of this life, and that day come on you suddenly. (Luke 21:35)  For it shall come as a snare on all those dwelling on the face of all the earth. (Luke 21:36)  “Watch then at all times, and pray that you be counted worthy to escape all this about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Aḏam.”
Do we call Him Lord and Master but NOT do what He says? Time for stopping pointing of the finger and some serious introspection! How can we become more of His image without us doing all the repenting? Especially since we know He is the same yesterday, today, and forever and He changes NOT?
(Luke 6:41)  “And why do you see the splinter in your brother’s eye, but are not aware of the plank in your own eye? (Luke 6:42)  “Or how are you able to say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take out the splinter that is in your eye,’ not seeing the plank in your own eye? Hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you shall see clearly to take out the splinter that is in your brother’s eye. (Luke 6:43)  “For a good tree does not yield rotten fruit, nor does a rotten tree yield good fruit. (Luke 6:44)  “For each tree is known by its own fruit. For they do not gather figs from thorns, or do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. (Luke 6:45)  “The good man brings forth what is good out of the good treasure of his heart, and the wicked man brings forth what is wicked out of the wicked treasure of his heart. For out of the overflow of the heart his mouth speaks. (Luke 6:46)  “But why do you call me ‘Master, Master,’ and do not do what I say? 1 Footnote: 1see vv. 47-49, Mt. 7:24-28, Luke. 8:21, John 3:36, James 2:17-24.
Of course you and I know that we are a SPIRIT being, we have a SOUL (mind will intellect and emotions) and we live in a BODY. Our spirits and souls will absolutely live somewhere forever; while our bodies are guaranteed to go back to the dust where YHWH created us from, until we get resurrected bodies; which are glorified. These glorified bodies will be given the obedient lovers of YHWH”S instructions- TORAH! But, will we be separated from our Father’s Kingdom from a lack of relationship based on LOVE and proven up by obedient actions based on loving Him. Furthermore; will we also be separated from those we claim to love- by our lack of loving actions as per the instructions of YHWH toward those “Loved ones” we claim we love and desire relationship with? Maybe you and I should get back to the basics of LOVE and RELATIONSHIPS- by showing honor to His Instructions and each other by DOING HIS COMMANDS LIKE HE HAS INSTRUCTED AND NOT LEAN ON OUR OWN UNDERSTANDINGS! Then we will produce fruit that remains as this glorifies our Father in Heaven! (Luke 6:20)  And He, lifting up His eyes toward His taught ones, said, “Blessed are the poor, 1 because yours is the reign of Elohim. Footnote: 1Isa. 11:4, James 2:5. (Luke 6:21)  “Blessed are you who hunger now, because you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, because you shall laugh. (Luke 6:22)  “Blessed are you when men shall hate you, and when they shall cut you off, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as wicked, for the sake of the Son of Aḏam. (Luke 6:23)  “Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for look, your reward is great in the heaven, for that is how their fathers treated the prophets.
We now turn our hearts and minds to this week’s Torah Scriptures.
This Week’s Torah Scriptures: Beshalach When He Sent/Let Go
Exodus 13:17-17:16; Judges 4:4-5:31; John 6:22-40
His Power/mercy= Our Deliverance! Pharaoh (U.N. One World Order) will have what seems to be natural power to overcome us--- but we will be walking in His power who made all that is- seen and unseen!
(Exodus 13:17)  And it came to be, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that Elohim did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines, though that was nearer, for Elohim said, “Lest the people regret when they see fighting, and return to Mitsrayim.” (Exodus 13:18)  So Elohim led the people around by way of the wilderness of the Sea of Reeds. And the children of Yisra’ĕl went up armed from the land of Mitsrayim. (Exodus 13:19)  And Mosheh took the bones of Yosĕph with him, for he certainly made the children of Yisra’ĕl swear, saying, “Elohim shall certainly visit you, and you shall bring my bones from here with you.” (Exodus 13:20)  And they departed from Sukkoth and camped in Ětham at the edge of the wilderness. (Exodus 13:21)  And יהוה went before them by day in a column of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a column of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night. (Exodus 13:22)  The column of cloud did not cease by day or the column of fire by night, before the people. (Exodus 14:1)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Exodus 14:2)  “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, that they turn and camp before Pi Haḥiroth, between Miḡdol and the sea, opposite Baʽal Tsephon – camp before it by the sea. (Exodus 14:3)  “For Pharaoh shall say of the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘They are entangled in the land, the wilderness has closed them in.’ (Exodus 14:4) “And I shall harden the heart of Pharaoh, and he shall pursue them. But I am to be esteemed through Pharaoh and over all his army, and the Mitsrites shall know that I am יהוה.” And they did so. (Exodus 14:5)  And it was reported to the sovereign of Mitsrayim that the people had fled, and the heart of Pharaoh and his servants was turned against the people. And they said, “Why have we done this, that we have let Yisra’ĕl go from serving us?” (Exodus 14:6)  So he made his chariot ready and took his people with him. (Exodus 14:7)  And he took six hundred choice chariots, and all the chariots of Mitsrayim with officers over all of them. (Exodus 14:8)  And יהוה hardened the heart of Pharaoh Sovereign of Mitsrayim, and he pursued the children of Yisra’ĕl, but the children of Yisra’ĕl went out defiantly. (Exodus 14:9)  And the Mitsrites pursued them, and all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, and his horsemen and his army, and overtook them camping by the sea beside Pi Haḥiroth, before Baʽal Tsephon. (Exodus 14:10)  And when Pharaoh drew near, the children of Yisra’ĕl lifted their eyes and saw the Mitsrites coming up after them. And they were greatly afraid, so the children of Yisra’ĕl cried out to יהוה. (Exodus 14:11)  And they said to Mosheh, “Did you take us away to die in the wilderness because there are no graves in Mitsrayim? What is this you have done to us, to bring us up out of Mitsrayim? (Exodus 14:12)  “Is this not the word that we spoke to you in Mitsrayim, saying, ‘Leave us alone and let us serve the Mitsrites?’ For it would have been better for us to serve the Mitsrites than to die in the wilderness.” (Exodus 14:13)  And Mosheh said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Standstill, and see the deliverance of יהוה, which He does for you today. For the Mitsrites whom you see today, you are never, never to see again. (Exodus 14:14)  יהוה does fight for you, and you keep still.”
Faith without action is dead- like the body without the spirit man in it! (It’s still faith- just cannot produce any fruit)
(Exodus 14:15)  And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Why do you cry to me? Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and let them go forward. (Exodus 14:16)  “And you, lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, and let the children of Yisra’ĕl go on dry ground through the midst of the sea. (Exodus 14:17)  “And I see I am hardening the hearts of the Mitsrites, and they shall follow them. And I am to be esteemed through Pharaoh and over all his army, his chariots, and his horsemen. (Exodus 14:18)  “And the Mitsrites shall know that I am יהוה, when I am esteemed through Pharaoh, his chariots, and his horsemen.” (Exodus 14:19)  And the Messenger of Elohim, who went before the camp of Yisra’ĕl, moved and went behind them. And the column of cloud went from before them and stood behind them, (Exodus 14:20) and came between the camp of the Mitsrites and the camp of Yisra’ĕl. And it was the cloud and the darkness, and it gave light by night, and the one did not come near the other all the night. (Exodus 14:21)  And Mosheh stretched out his hand over the sea. And יהוה caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided. (Exodus 14:22)  And the children of Yisra’ĕl went into the midst of the sea on dry ground, and the waters were a wall to them on their right and on their left. (Exodus 14:23)  And the Mitsrites pursued and went after them into the midst of the sea, all the horses of Pharaoh, his chariots, and his horsemen. (Exodus 14:24)  And it came to be, in the morning watch, that יהוה looked down upon the army of the Mitsrites through the column of fire and cloud, and He brought the army of the Mitsrites into confusion. (Exodus 14:25)  And He took off their chariot wheels, so that they drove them with difficulty. And the Mitsrites said, “Let us flee from the face of Yisra’ĕl, for יהוה fights for them against the Mitsrites.” (Exodus 14:26)  Then יהוה said to Mosheh, “Stretch out your hand over the sea, and let the waters come back upon the Mitsrites, on their chariots, and on their horsemen.” (Exodus 14:27)  And Mosheh stretched out his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to its usual flow, at the break of day, with the Mitsrites fleeing into it. Thus יהוה overthrew the Mitsrites in the midst of the sea, (Exodus 14:28) and the waters returned and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the army of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them, and not even one was left of them. (Exodus 14:29)  And the children of Yisra’ĕl walked on dry ground in the midst of the sea, and the waters were a wall to them on their right and on their left. (Comment: the “Red” sea crossing site was found in 1000’ feet of water- even Pharaoh’s gold encased chariot wheels and may be seen at (Exodus 14:30)  Thus יהוה saved Yisra’ĕl that day out of the hand of the Mitsrites, and Yisra’ĕl saw the Mitsrites dead on the seashore. (Exodus 14:31)  And Yisra’ĕl saw the great work which יהוה had done in Mitsrayim, and the people feared יהוה, and believed יהוה and His servant Mosheh.
Song of Moses (Comment- I have thought for a long time that the Song of Moses represents the following of the Torah and the goodness/mercy and power of love Yahweh displayed under His Covenant; and the Song of the Lamb represents the testimony of Yahshua and the goodness/mercy and power of love He paid for to reinstate the Melchizedek Priesthood that Adam was under- as Yahshua is the EXACT representation of the Father- full of grace and truth! It is always good to sing about His goodness and wonderful acts of compassion and power for those that love Him!)
(Exodus 15:1)  Then Mosheh and the children of Yisra’ĕl sang this song to יהוה, and spoke, saying, “I sing to יהוה, for He is highly exalted! The horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea! (Exodus 15:2)  “Yah is my strength and song, and He has become my deliverance. He is my Ěl, and I praise Him – Elohim of my father, and I exalt Him. (Exodus 15:3)  יהוה is a man of battle, יהוה is His Name. (Exodus 15:4)  He has cast Pharaoh’s chariots and his army into the sea, and his chosen officers are drowned in the Sea of Reeds. (Exodus 15:5)  “The depths covered them; they went down to the bottom like a stone. (Exodus 15:6)  “Your right hand, O יהוה, has become great in power. Your right hand, O יהוה, has crushed the enemy. (Exodus 15:7)  “And in the greatness of your excellence you pulled down those who rose up against you. You sent forth your wrath, it consumed them like stubble. (Exodus 15:8)  “And with the wind of your nostrils the waters were heaped up, the floods stood like a wall, the depths became stiff in the heart of the sea. (Exodus 15:9)  “The enemy said, ‘I pursue, I overtake, I divide the spoil, my being is satisfied on them. I draw out my sword, my hand destroys them.(Exodus 15:10)  “You did blow with your wind, the sea covered them, they sank like lead in the mighty waters. (Exodus 15:11)  “Who is like You, O יהוה, among the mighty ones? Who is like you, great in set-apartness, awesome in praises, working wonders? (Exodus 15:12)  “You stretched out your right hand, the earth swallowed them. (Exodus 15:13)  In your kindness you led the people whom you have redeemed; in your strength you guided them to your set-apart dwelling. (Exodus 15:14)  “Peoples heard, they trembled, and anguish gripped the inhabitants of Philistia. (Exodus 15:15)  “Then the chiefs of Eḏom were troubled, the mighty men of Mo’aḇ, trembling grips them, all the inhabitants of Kenaʽan melted. (Exodus 15:16)  “Fear and dread fell on them, by the greatness of your arm they are as silent as a stone, until your people pass over, O יהוה, until the people, whom you have bought, pass over. (Exodus 15:17)  “You bring them in and plant them in the mountain of your inheritance, in the place, O יהוה, which you have made for your own dwelling, the set-apart place, O יהוה, which your hands have prepared. (Exodus 15:18)יהוה reigns forever and ever.” (Exodus 15:19)  The horses of Pharaoh went with his chariots and his horsemen into the sea, and יהוה brought back the waters of the sea upon them. And the children of Yisra’ĕl went on dry ground in the midst of the sea. (Exodus 15:20)  And Miryam the prophetess, the sister of Aharon, took the timbrel in her hand. And all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances. (Exodus 15:21)  And Miryam answered them, “Sing to יהוה, for He is highly exalted! The horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea!” (Exodus 15:22)  And Mosheh brought Yisra’ĕl from the Sea of Reeds, and they went out into the Wilderness of Shur. And they went three days in the wilderness and found no water. (Exodus 15:23)  And they came to Marah, and they were unable to drink the waters of Marah, for they were bitter. So the name of it was called Marah. (Exodus 15:24)  And the people grumbled against Mosheh, saying, “What are we to drink?” (Exodus 15:25)  Then he cried out to יהוה, and יהוה showed him a tree. And when he threw it into the waters, the waters were made sweet. There He made a law and a right-ruling for them, and there He tried them.
Obedience brings divine health and victory even over H1N1, space weapons of mass destruction, Nephillim giants or alien beings/demons and all the wicked devices of Pharaoh!
(Exodus 15:26)  And He said, “If you diligently obey the voice of יהוה your Elohim and do what is right in His eyes, and shall listen to His commands and shall guard all His laws, I shall bring on you none of the diseases I brought on the Mitsrites, for I am יהוה who heals you.” (Exodus 15:27)  And they came to Ělim, where there were twelve fountains of water and seventy palm trees. And they camped there by the waters.
Yep! Obedience from love even brings PROVISION! (We will be tested on that)
(Exodus 16:1)  And they set out from Ělim, and all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl came to the Wilderness of Sin, which is between Ělim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their going out of the land of Mitsrayim. (Exodus 16:2)  And all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl grumbled against Mosheh and Aharon in the wilderness. (Exodus 16:3)  And the children of Yisra’ĕl said to them, “If only we had died by the hand of יהוה in the land of Mitsrayim, when we sat by the pots of meat and when we ate bread to satisfaction! You have brought us out into this wilderness to put all this assembly to death with hunger.” (Exodus 16:4)  And יהוה said to Mosheh, “See, I am raining bread from the heavens for you. And the people shall go out and gather a day’s portion every day, in order to try them, whether they walk in My Torah or not. (Exodus 16:5)  “And it shall be on the sixth day that they shall prepare what they bring in, and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily.” (Exodus 16:6)  And Mosheh and Aharon said to all the children of Yisra’ĕl, “At evening you shall know that יהוה has brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim. (Exodus 16:7)  “And in the morning you shall see the esteem of יהוה, for He hears your grumblings against יהוה. And what are we that you grumble against us?” (Exodus 16:8)  And Mosheh said, “In that יהוה gives you meat to eat in the evening, and in the morning bread to satisfaction, for יהוה hears your grumblings which you make against Him. And what are we? Your grumblings are not against us but against יהוה.” (Exodus 16:9)  And Mosheh said to Aharon, “Say to all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘Come near before יהוה, for He has heard your grumblings.’ ” (Exodus 16:10) And it came to be, as Aharon spoke to all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl that they looked toward the wilderness and see, the esteem of יהוה appeared in the cloud. (Exodus 16:11)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Exodus 16:12) “I have heard the grumblings of the children of Yisra’ĕl. Speak to them, saying, ‘Between the evenings you are to eat meat, and in the morning you are to be satisfied with bread. And you shall know that I am יהוה your Elohim.’ ” (Exodus 16:13) And it came to be that quails came up at evening and covered the camp, and in the morning the dew lay all around the camp. (Exodus 16:14)  And the layer of dew went up, and see, on the surface of the wilderness, was a small round substance, as fine as frost on the ground. (Exodus 16:15)  And the children of Yisra’ĕl saw, and they said to each other, “What is it?” They did not know what it was. And Mosheh said to them, “It is the bread which יהוה has given you to eat. (Exodus 16:16)  “This is the word which יהוה has commanded: ‘Let every man gather it according to each one’s need, an omer for each being, according to the number of beings. Let every man take for those who are in his tent.’ ” (Exodus 16:17) And the children of Yisra’ĕl did so and gathered, some more, some less. (Exodus 16:18)  And they measured it by omers, and he who gathered much did not have too much, and he who gathered little did not have too little. Each one gathered according to his need. (Exodus 16:19)  And Mosheh said, “Let no one leave any of it until morning.” (Exodus 16:20)  And they did not listen to Mosheh, so some of them left part of it until morning, and it bred worms and stank. And Mosheh was wroth with them. (Exodus 16:21)  And they gathered it every morning, each one according to his need. And when the sun became hot, it melted. (Exodus 16:22)  And it came to be, on the sixth day, that they gathered twice as much bread; two omers for each one. And all the rulers of the congregation came and told Mosheh. (Exodus 16:23)  And he said to them, “This is what יהוה has said, ‘Tomorrow is a rest, a Sabbath set-apart to יהוה. That which you bake, bake; and that which you cook, cook. And lay up for yourselves all that is left over, to keep it until morning.’ ” (Exodus 16:24) And they laid it up till morning, as Mosheh commanded. And it did not stink, and no worm was in it. (Exodus 16:25)  And Mosheh said, “Eat it today, for today is a Sabbath to יהוה, today you do not find it in the field. (Exodus 16:26)  “Gather it six days, but on the seventh day, which is the Sabbath, there is none.” (Exodus 16:27)  And it came to be that some of the people went out on the seventh day to gather, but they found none. (Exodus 16:28)  And יהוה said to Mosheh, “How long shall you refuse to guard my commands and My Torot1? Footnote: 1Torot - plural of Torah, teaching. (Exodus 16:29)  “See, because יהוה has given you the Sabbath, therefore He is giving you bread for two days on the sixth day. Let each one stay in his place; do not let anyone go out of his place on the seventh day.” (Exodus 16:30)  So the people rested on the seventh day1. Footnote: The seventh day of the week, the weekly Sabbath, was observed before the Ten Words were given on Mt. Sinai. (Exodus 16:31)  And the house of Yisra’ĕl called its name Manna. And it was like white coriander seed, and the taste of it was like thin cakes made with honey. (Exodus 16:32)  And Mosheh said, “This is the word which יהוה has commanded: ‘Fill an omer with it, to keep for your generations, so that they see the bread with which I fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim.’ ” (Exodus 16:33) And Mosheh said to Aharon, “Take a pot and put an omer of manna in it, and set it down before יהוה, to keep for your generations.” (Exodus 16:34)  As יהוה commanded Mosheh, so did Aharon set it down before the Witness, to keep. (Exodus 16:35)  And the children of Yisra’ĕl ate manna forty years, until they came to an inhabited land. They ate manna until they came to the border of the land of Kenaʽan. (Exodus 16:36) and an omer is one-tenth of an ĕphah.
We’ll get to face and overcome the giants in the land also!
(Exodus 17:1)  And all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl set out on their journey from the Wilderness of Sin, according to the command of יהוה, and camped in Rephiḏim. And there was no water for the people to drink. (Exodus 17:2)  Therefore the people strove with Mosheh, and said, “Give us water to drink.” And Mosheh said to them, “Why do you strive with me? Why do you try יהוה?” (Exodus 17:3)  And the people thirsted there for water, and the people grumbled against Mosheh, and said, “Why did you bring us out of Mitsrayim, to kill us and our children and our livestock with thirst?” (Exodus 17:4)  Then Mosheh cried out to יהוה, saying, “What am I to do with this people? Yet a little and they shall stone me!” (Exodus 17:5)  And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Pass over before the people, and take with you some of the elders of Yisra’ĕl. And take in your hand your rod with which you smote the river, and go. (Exodus 17:6)  “See, I am standing before you there on the rock in Ḥorĕḇ. And you shall smite the rock, and water shall come out of it, and the people shall drink.” And Mosheh did so before the eyes of the elders of Yisra’ĕl. (Exodus 17:7)  And he called the name of the place Massah and Meriḇah, because of the ‘strife’ of the children of Yisra’ĕl, and because they ‘tried’ יהוה, saying, “Is יהוה in our midst or not?” (Exodus 17:8)  And Amalĕq came and fought with Yisra’ĕl in Rephiḏim. (Exodus 17:9)  And Mosheh said to Yehoshua, “Choose for us men and go out, fight with Amalĕq. Tomorrow I am stationing myself on the top of the hill with the rod of Elohim in my hand.” (Exodus 17:10)  And Yehoshua did as Mosheh said to him, to fight with Amalĕq. And Mosheh, Aharon, and Ḥur went up to the top of the hill. (Exodus 17:11)  And it came to be, when Mosheh held up his hand, that Yisra’ĕl prevailed. And when he let down his hand, Amalĕq prevailed. (Exodus 17:12)  But Mosheh’s hands were heavy, so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it. And Aharon and Ḥur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side. And his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. (Exodus 17:13)  And Yehoshua defeated Amalĕq and his people with the edge of the sword. (Exodus 17:14)  And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Write this for a remembrance in the book and recite it in the hearing of Yehoshua that I shall completely blot out the remembrance of Amalĕq from under the heavens.” (Exodus 17:15)  And Mosheh built an altar and called its name, יהוה Nissi, (Exodus 17:16) for he said, Because a hand is on the throne of Yah, יהוה is to fight against Amalĕq, from generation to generation.”
Yah’s enemies will be scattered and destroyed- even by the least of us!
(Judges 4:4)  And Deḇorah, a prophetess, the wife of Lappiḏoth, was ruling Yisra’ĕl at that time. (Judges 4:5)  And she was dwelling under the palm tree of Deḇorah between Ramah and Bĕyth Ěl in the mountains of Ephrayim. And the children of Yisra’ĕl came up to her for right-ruling. (Judges 4:6)  And she sent and called for Baraq son of Aḇinoʽam from Qeḏesh in Naphtali, and said to him, “Has not יהוה Elohim of Yisra’ĕl commanded, ‘Go, and you shall draw towards Mount Taḇor, and shall take with you ten thousand men of the sons of Naphtali and of the sons of Zeḇulun, (Judges 4:7) and I shall draw unto you Sisera, the commander of Yaḇin’s army, with his chariots and his company at the wadi Qishon, and shall give him into your hand’?” (Judges 4:8)  And Baraq said to her, “If you go with me, then I shall go; but if you do not go with me, I do not go.” (Judges 4:9)  And she said, “I shall certainly go with you. Only, there shall be no esteem for you in the journey you are taking, for יהוה is going to sell Sisera into the hand of a woman.” So Deḇorah arose and went with Baraq to Qeḏesh. (Judges 4:10)  And Baraq called Zeḇulun and Naphtali to Qeḏesh. And he went up – ten thousand men under his command – and Deḇorah went up with him. (Judges 4:11)  And Ḥeḇer the Qĕynite, of the children of Ḥoḇaḇ the father-in-law of Mosheh, had separated himself from the Qĕynites and pitched his tent near the terebinth tree at Tsaʽanayim, which is beside Qeḏesh. (Judges 4:12)  And they reported to Sisera that Baraq son of Aḇinoʽam had gone up to Mount Taḇor. (Judges 4:13)  So Sisera called all his chariots, nine hundred chariots of iron, and all the people who were with him, from Ḥarosheth Haggoyim to the wadi Qishon. (Judges 4:14)  And Deḇorah said to Baraq, “Rise up! For this is the day in which יהוה has given Sisera into your hand. Has not יהוה gone out before you?” And Baraq went down from Mount Taḇor with ten thousand men after him. (Judges 4:15)  And יהוה destroyed Sisera and all his chariots and all his army with the edge of the sword before Baraq. And Sisera leaped from his chariot and fled away on foot. (Judges 4:16)  But Baraq pursued the chariots and the army as far as Ḥarosheth Haggoyim, and all the army of Sisera fell by the edge of the sword, not one was left. (Judges 4:17)  Sisera, meanwhile, had fled on foot to the tent of Yaʽĕl, the wife of Ḥeḇer the Qĕynite, for there was peace between Yaḇin sovereign of Ḥatsor and the house of Ḥeḇer the Qĕynite. (Judges 4:18)  And Yaʽĕl went out to meet Sisera, and said to him, “Turn aside, my master, turn aside to me, do not fear.” So he turned aside with her into the tent, and she covered him with a blanket. (Judges 4:19)  And he said to her, “Please give me a little water to drink, for I am thirsty.” So she opened a bottle of milk, and gave him a drink, and covered him. (Judges 4:20)  And he said to her, “Stand at the door of the tent, and it shall be if anyone comes and asks you, and says, ‘Is there a man here?’ you shall say, ‘No.’ ” (Judges 4:21)  But Yaʽĕl, Ḥeḇer’s wife, took a tent peg and took a hammer in her hand, and went softly to him and drove the peg into the side of his head, and it went down into the ground – for he was fast asleep and exhausted – and he died. (Judges 4:22)  And see, as Baraq pursued Sisera, Yaʽĕl came out to meet him, and said to him, “Come, let me show you the man whom you are seeking.” And when he went into her tent, there lay Sisera, dead with the peg in the side of his head. (Judges 4:23)  And on that day Elohim humbled Yaḇin sovereign of Kenaʽan in the presence of the children of Yisra’ĕl. (Judges 4:24)  And the hand of the children of Yisra’ĕl grew stronger and stronger against Yaḇin sovereign of Kenaʽan, until they had cut off Yaḇin sovereign of Kenaʽan. (Judges 5:1)  And on that day Deḇorah and Baraq son of Aḇinoʽam sang, saying, (Judges 5:2) “For leaders leading in Yisra’ĕl, for the people volunteering, bless יהוה! (Judges 5:3)  “Hear O sovereigns! Give ear, O princes! I, I do sing to יהוה; I sing praise to יהוה Elohim of Yisra’ĕl. (Judges 5:4)  יהוה, when you went out from Sĕʽir, when you stepped from the field of Eḏom, the earth shook and the heavens poured, the clouds also poured water. (Judges 5:5)  “The mountains flowed at the presence of יהוה, this Sinai, at the presence of יהוה Elohim of Yisra’ĕl. m(Judges 5:6)  “In the days of Shamgar, the son of Anath, in the days of Yaʽĕl, the highways were deserted, and the travelers went in crooked ways. (Judges 5:7)  “Leadership ceased, it ceased in Yisra’ĕl, until I, Deḇorah, arose – a mother in Yisra’ĕl arose. (Judges 5:8)  “They chose new mighty ones, and then fighting was in the gates! Neither a shield nor spear was seen among forty thousand in Yisra’ĕl. (Judges 5:9)  “My heart is towards the lawgivers of Yisra’ĕl, the volunteers among the people. Bless יהוה! (Judges 5:10)  “You who ride on white donkeys, you who sit on rich carpets and you who walk along the way, declare it! (Judges 5:11)  “By the voice of shouters, between the places of drawing water, there they recount the righteous acts of יהוה, the righteous acts of His leadership in Yisra’ĕl; then the people of יהוה shall go down to the gates. (Judges 5:12)  “Wake up, wake up, Deḇorah! Wake up, wake up, sing a song! Arise, Baraq, and lead your captives away, O son of Aḇinoʽam! (Judges 5:13)  “Then He set the remnant to rule the nobles; יהוה came down for me against the mighty ones. (Judges 5:14)  “Out of Ephrayim their root is against Amalĕq. After you, Binyamin, with your peoples, out of Maḵir lawgivers came down, and out of Zeḇulun those who handle the scribe’s reed. (Judges 5:15)  “And the heads of Yissasḵar were with Deḇorah. And as Yissasḵar, so was Baraq sent into the valley under his command. Among the divisions of Re’uḇĕn there were great searching of heart. (Judges 5:16)  “Why did you remain among the sheepfolds, to hear the bleatings of the flocks? The divisions of Re’uḇĕn have great searching of heart. (Judges 5:17)  “Gilʽaḏ remained beyond the Yardĕn, and why did Dan remain on ships? Ashĕr continued at the seashore, and remained by its landing places. (Judges 5:18)  “Zeḇulun is a people who risked their lives to the point of death, Naphtali also, on the heights of the field. (Judges 5:19)  “Sovereigns came, they fought, then the sovereigns of Kenaʽan fought in Taʽanaḵ, by the waters of Meḡiddo; they took no spoils of silver. (Judges 5:20)  “From the heavens they fought; the stars from their courses fought against Sisera. (Judges 5:21)  “The wadi of Qishon swept them away, that age-old wadi, the wadi of Qishon. O my being, you have trampled in strength! (Judges 5:22)  “Then stamped hoofs of horses, with the galloping, galloping of his steeds. (Judges 5:23)  ‘Curse Mĕroz,’ said a messenger of יהוה, ‘curse, curse its inhabitants, because they did not come to the help of יהוה, to the help of יהוה among the mighty.’ (Judges 5:24)  “Blessed above women is Yaʽĕl, the wife of Ḥeḇer the Qĕynite – above women in tents she is blessed. (Judges 5:25)  “He asked for water, she gave milk; she brought out curdled milk in a bowl for nobles. (Judges 5:26)  She stretched her hand to the tent peg, and her right hand to the workmen’s hammer. Then she pounded Sisera, she smashed his head, she pierced and struck through the side of his head. (Judges 5:27)  “Between her feet he bowed, he fell, he lay still; between her feet he bowed, he fell; where he bowed, there he fell – destroyed. (Judges 5:28)  “Through the window the mother of Sisera looked, and cried out through the lattice, ‘Why does his chariot delay to come? Why have the steps of his chariots tarried?’ (Judges 5:29)  “The wise ones of her princesses answered her, indeed, she answered herself, (Judges 5:30)  ‘Do they not find and divide the spoil: a girl or two for each man; a spoil of dyed work for Sisera, a spoil of dyed work embroidered, dyed work richly embroidered for the necks of the looter?’ (Judges 5:31)  So do all your enemies perish O יהוה! But let those who love Him be like the sun rising in its might!” And the land had rest forty years.
John 6:22 On the next day, the crowd that was standing on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other boat there except that one into which His taught ones had entered, and that יהושע had not entered the boat with His taught ones, but His taught ones went away alone – John 6:23  but other boats came from Kinnereth, near the place where they ate bread after the Master had given thanks – John 6:24  therefore when the crowd saw that יהושע was not there, or His taught ones, they themselves also entered into the boats and came to Kephar Naḥum, seeking יהושע. John 6:25 and having found Him on the other side of the sea, they asked Him, “Rabbi, when did you come here?” John 6:26 יהושע answered them and said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you seek me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were satisfied. John 6:27  “Do not labor for the food that is perishing, but for the food that is remaining to everlasting life, which the Son of Aḏam shall give you,1 for the Father, Elohim, has set His seal on Him.” Footnote: 1See vv. 35, 48, 51, 58, and Mt. 4:4. John 6:28 so they said to Him, “What should we do to work the works of Elohim?” John 6:29 יהושע answered and said to them, “This is the work of Elohim that you believe in Him whom He sent.”  John 6:30 So they said to Him, “What sign then would You do, so that we see and believe You? What would you do?  John 6:31 “Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, as it has been written, ‘He gave them bread out of the heaven to eat.’ ”  John 6:32 Therefore יהושע said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, Mosheh did not give you the bread out of the heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread out of the heaven. John 6:33 ‘The bread of Elohim is He who comes down out of the heaven and gives life to the world.” John 6:34 So they said to Him, “Master, give us this bread always.”  John 6:35 and יהושע said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me shall not get hungry at all, and he who believes in me shall not get thirsty at all.  John 6:36 “But I said to you that you have seen me, and still do not believe.  John 6:37 “All that the Father gives me shall come to me, and the one who comes to me I shall by no means cast out.  John 6:38 “I have come down out of the heaven, not to do my own desire, but the desire of Him who sent me.  John 6:39 “This is the desire of the Father who sent me, that all He has given me I should not lose of it, but should raise it in the last day. John 6:40 And this is the desire of Him who sent me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him should possess everlasting life. And I shall raise him up in the last day.”
Loved One, Thanks again for your marvelous prayers for Billie and me and our loved ones! They are returned for those who do this kind act! Some 30- 60- and a hundred fold! Mighty is our Elohim to deliver us! HalleluYAH!
Shalom to your home Loved One,
Continued explanation of 2014-15 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.
