Isaac, a picture of Messiah

Welcome back friends. Today we have two witnesses of Isaac being a picture of, or a foreshadowing of the Messiah in this week’s Torah portion, and they’re only 31 verses apart. Turn with me to our first one in Genesis 21:5. It reads, and I worded it in the same order the Hebrew words it:

We have our stand-alone Alef Tav right in front of “Isaac his son”. (Aleph Tav representing Yeshua. See the introduction blog: if this concept is new to you.๐Ÿค“)

Our next witness is an even more specific foreshadowing because of the Hebrew word “olah ืขืœื”” which means “burnt offering” in this verse, but I’m getting ahead of myself. The verse reads in English:

Here we have the stand-alone Aleph Tav (with a vav ื•) again next to “Isaac his son” with olah ืขืœื” a few words later. But the verse that clinches all this and ties it neatly with a bow is Gen 22:8, which reads, worded as the Hebrew words it:

means “to ascend” = ืœืขืœื”

“To olah” literally means “to ascend” because the whole burnt offering ascends as smoke. The burnt offering is burned completely. Not just parts burned and parts eaten.

(Consider that it was a ram, not a lamb, that was offered in place of Isaac at that time. (Gen 22:13))

Now let’s look at Yeshua. Turn to John 20:17, which reads:

Yeshua tells Mary not to cling to Him because He hasn’t ascended (olah) yet and that He is about to ascend. We can see later that He had ascended because He tells His disciples to “handle Me and see” (Luke 24:39) to prove to them that it was He. And He tells Thomas:

Yeshua was the olah offering. The offering that ascended after His sacrifice. Abraham and Isaac ascended mount Moriah to sacrifice Isaac as the ascending/burnt offering/olah but YHVH provided a spotless Lamb in Isaac’s place.

There are 26 verses in Revelation testifying of Yeshua the Messiah being the Lamb. This is just one of them:

Moses did indeed write of Yeshua. Yeshua is all throughout Torah and He is even all throughout the Tanakh! And Yeshua, the Word made flesh, lives forevermore!

Slippery Serpents

Welcome back friends!

Have you ever taken a close look at the conversation between the serpent and Eve in the garden of Eden? Actually, the serpent tells the truth…kind of.

First off, he baits her into a conversation about the trees. Let’s look at the exchange.

The bait

Eve’s reply:

Nor shall you touch it?

Now, according to the account we have, YHVH never told her not to touch the tree (Gen 2:16, 17), besides, Eve wasn’t even created when YHVH told Adam not to eat it so I guess we can let that little inconsistency of her’s slide. The conversation continues:

The Gotcha

Half of what he says to her is true, and even the lie is half true in that she wouldn’t die immediately. But it’s the broader fruit-of-his-teaching that you need to realize. The fruit of the serpent is that he deceived Eve into disobeying the Father. The repercussions being that she and Adam were not allowed into the Kingdom anymore. The serpent’s fruit is rotten, no matter what percentage of untruth he spun. Any person who’s word’s end result is you disobeying the Father/breaking His commandments is rotten fruit. He allows us to be tested all the time. He even allowed a serpent into the Canon but most don’t recognize his fruit to be rotten. Will you be discerning? Will you recognize the serpent? If so, you are of the elect!

ET (ืืช) Gates of Their Enemies

In this week’s Torah portion of Vayera (Gen 18:1 – 22:24) we have a confirmation of someone specific being an enemy of Yeshua. This treasure won’t set well with most people but I need to show you nevertheless. Like I sometimes say – No ear-tickling here! ๐Ÿ˜‡

There is a stand-alone Alef Tav in Gen 22:17. Here is the verse with the Aleph Tav reinserted:

We will be honing in on the yellow highlighted bit. With that part in mind, let me take you to Matt 16:18, where Yeshua is saying to Peter:

Take note of the yellow highlighted bit. Firstly, let me ask you, how do gates come against anyone? Gates are stationary. Do we know of anyONE who came against Peter?

The first verse above with the green background speaks of gates of enemies. The second verse where Yeshua is speaking speaks of gates of hades, or hell, or better yet, the Hebrew, sheol, since Yeshua was speaking Hebrew and we all know that sheol is synonymous with hell and hades.

Also, the Genesis verse has a stand-alone Alef Tav right in front of “gates of their enemies” which is like red flashing lights saying, “Look at me! I am referring to Yeshua!”

Ok, to clinch this off, you will need to look up two Strong’s numbers. The first one is H7585. It is the Hebrew word for sheol ืฉืื•ืœ. The second word you will need to look up is spelled exactly like sheol ืฉืื•ืœ, but it is H7586.

Now, tie this all together. Let all this sink in. Who was Yeshua warning Peter about but also letting Peter know he would prevail against?

Yeshua is the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through Him.

Test the spirits

John advises us to test the spirits in 1 John 4:1 –

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. - 1 John 4:1

But I’ve got to warn you; once you start testing spirits your friends list will dwindle down to nothing. You will be surprised how many jezebel spirits and antichrist spirits are lurking out there, and they DO NOT like to be recognized. Here are some traits of a person (man or woman) who has a jezebel spirit:

Do you know anyone like this? Have you heard of narcissists? It seems that all jezebels are narcissists, but not all narcissists are jezebels. Jezebels are vehemently opposed to YHVH’s commandments but are usually very active in their churches, loving to be the ring leader.

I know a man with an antichrist spirit who has been posing as a Messianic for years. His wife is still unaware that he is a poser. It wasn’t until I started to question his belief that I discovered that he doesn’t believe in resurrection. Not even Yeshua’s resurrection!

These evil spirits are everywhere! Guard yourselves from these usurpers. They will try to trip you up.

Yeshua, “like the sun”

Hebrew names have meanings. For instance, Yeshua’s name means “Salvation of Yah”, so when the angel told Mary to name her child Yeshua, because He would save His people from their sins, it made perfect sense, because that’s what “Yeshua” means!

โ€œAnd she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Yeshua ื™ืฉื•ืข, for He will save His people from their sins.โ€
Mat 1:21

In Judges 16, we have some of the account of Samson’s life. Samson’s name, ืฉืžืฉื•ืŸ, means “like the sun” (H8121).

In Judges 16:23, we have a stand-alone Alef Tav right next to Samson’s name. (You can verify this with any bible search engine in the original Hebrew.) The Alef Tav represents Yeshua. (See the introduction here if your new to this concept.)

Judges 16:23 reads (with the Aleph Tav reinserted):

Yeshua being represented next to Samson’s name probably has many hidden meanings, like Yeshua also being a deliverer of His people from their enemies, as Samson was, but I will show you how it can be a reference to Yeshua being “like the sun”, which is what Samson’s name means.

We have two witnesses of Yeshua being “like the sun”. Our first witness is in Matthew’s epistle. The transfiguration.

Yeshua “like the sun”

Our next witness is from John in Revelation.

Yeshua “like the sun”

Two witnesses! Prophecy of Judges 16:23 fulfilled! Granted, we too will see Yeshua like the sun, but that will be fulfilled for us later.

I pray that these witnesses of Yeshua in the Tanakh are blessings to you!

Who are the Nicolaitans?

Would you agree that Yeshua wrote Revelation to our last generation?

If not, don’t bother reading any further. If you do, please proceed.

Yeshua mentions the Nicolaitans twice when addressing the seven churches and since He is speaking to our generation we should understand what He is saying, right? Here are the two verses:

Rev 2:6 NKJV โ€” โ€œBut this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate."


Rev 2:15 NKJV โ€” โ€œThus you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
I would submit to you that we know who the Nicolaitans are very well and that most of us grew up as Nicolaitans, including me.
Can you think of any famous person named Nicholas? How about if we add the catholic "saint" to his name?
Have you ever Googled "old nick"?
I urge you to prayerfully consider these questions because it is important, according to Yeshua. He used the word "hate" twice when speaking of them.

When I Google “old Nick” this is what comes up first:

Time is short.

P.S. – I just looked on a calendar and Christmas Eve and Christmas are on Yah’s Sabbath this year. It’s almost like, this is your last chance. Will you choose to honor YHVH and Yeshua, the Lord of the Sabbath, or will you choose to honor old Nick?

Choose life!

Yeshua, Lion of El /Lion of Judah

You have no doubt heard of Yeshua as the lion of Judah from this verse in Revelation:

Rev 5:5 - But one of the elders said to me, โ€œDo not weep. Behold, the lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.โ€

But, believe it or not, the first time Yeshua is referred to the Lion of El is in Judges 3:9, hidden from all translations except Hebrew. The English verse reads:

When the children of Israel cried out to YHVH, YHVH raised up a deliverer for the children of Israel, who delivered them: Othniel the son of Kenaz, Calebโ€™s younger brother. – Judges 3:9

Nothing too spectacular there. But if you look up the name Othniel in the Strong’s concordance you would discover that his name means “lion of El” from H6273 ืขืชื ื™ and H410 ืืœ.

The Hebrew verse reads:

Do you see it? Yeshua, represented by the Alef Tav ืึตึšืช next to Othniel which, broken down into the Hebrew meaning is “lion of El” and Othniel is from Judah! Not to mention that the word in front of the Aleph Tav which means “delivered them” has the same root word as Yeshua ื™ืฉื•ืข! The Lion of El, the Lion of Judah is our deliverer too!!I

I love this witness!

Be blessed as you bless YHVH! ๐Ÿ’•
