Then it shall come to pass = Ekev עקב

Do you remember in the Torah portion two weeks ago where the Almighty warns us not to add to, nor take away from His word?

"You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it..." - Deut 4:2a

Here is a great example of why we (and especially the translators) should not. The first verse in this week’s Torah portion (Deut 7:12 – 11:25) has a stand-alone Alef Tav (את), which, as I’ve shown previously, represents Yeshua. Here is the verse in English, without the Alef (א) Tav (ת):

And here is the first part of the verse with the Alef Tav reinserted:

…listen to Yeshua, these judgments…

Yeshua is the Word made flesh and He is all throughout the Word. Yeshua is alive forevermore, as the Word is alive forevermore. Only one being (and his followers) would ever say that the Almighty’s Word has been done away with, and you DO NOT want to be taking his side.

I choose to listen to Yeshua, these judgments, and guard (shomer שומר) and do them, so YHVH Elohai will keep with me the covenant and the mercy which He swore to my fathers. And He will love me and bless me! 😁

If you’re interested, there is another Alef Tav treasure 6 verses later which reads:

Remember well Yeshua who brought judgments upon Egypt (remember that Yeshua and YHVH are united as one)

The next stand-alone Alef Tav is in 9:7, which is still in this week’s Torah portion, and it builds on the one we just looked at. It reads:

Again! Remember and do not forget Yeshua!

The next stand-alone Alef Tav in this portion sits right next to our Father’s holy name. It can be found in 9:25. Here is the verse with Alef Tav reinserted:

Moses prostrated himself before YHVH את! Do you remember when Yeshua says that no one has seen Eloheim at any time? (Jn 1:18 & 1 Jn 4:12) Moses was speaking face-to-face with Yeshua the whole time!

The next witness is Yeshua connected to the 10 commandments! Yes, in the same Torah portion! Look at Deut 10:4, which should read, with the Alef Tav reinserted:

Another perfect example of Yeshua being the Word made flesh, the Testimony, literally the 10 Words in the original Hebrew! I hope you go through and verify these witnesses in Blueletterbible or e-sword in the Hebrew. 😇

I am skipping one witness but the next stand-alone after the skipped one is in Deut 11:1, which should read:

This is an awe-some Torah portion packed full of witnesses of Yeshua!

May you be blessed as you bless the Almighty!

It's not about me, it's about my Father, His holy, unchanging Word, Yeshua made flesh! No ear tickling here. (And maybe a couple of posted recipes that I've been unable to find online elsewhere. 😉)
