Gentleness Is In Me

Gentleness Is In Me

Let your gentleness be evident to all. — Philippians 4:5 Thought for the Day: The more I rejoice, the more I keep things in perspective. The more I keep things in perspective, the gentler I become. Lately, I’ve had this Bible verse chasing me around: “Let your gentleness be evident today.”

Memorial Parsha Va’era

January 16, 2018

Welcome to the Memorial Parsha Va’era, for the Disciples of Jesus Christ. 

Sabbath, January 1st, 2011. Torah in Exodus 6:2 through Exodus 9:35Haftorah Ezekiel 28:29 through Ezekial 29:21. (originally edited Sat. Jan.1, 2010)


Ezekiel 29:16 – 16And it shall be no more the confidence of the house of Israel, which bringeth their iniquity to remembrance, when they shall look after them: but they shall know that I am the Lord GOD.

Isaiah 11:1-4

1And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:

2And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

3And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:

4But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.

Exodus 6:1-27: Israel’s Deliverance

 1Then the LORD said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.

 2And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD:

3And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.

4And I have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers.

5And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my covenant.

6Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:

7And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God: and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.

 8And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it you for a heritage: I am the LORD.

 9And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel: but they hearkened not unto Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage.

 10And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

 11Go in, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land.

 12And Moses spake before the LORD, saying, Behold, the children of Israel have not hearkened unto me; how then shall Pharaoh hear me, who am of uncircumcised lips?

 13And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, and gave them a charge unto the children of Israel, and unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.

 14These be the heads of their fathers’ houses: The sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel; Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi: these be the families of Reuben.

 Exodus 6:14-27:  The Family of Moses and Aaron 

 15And the sons of Simeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman: these are the families of Simeon.

 16And these are the names of the sons of Levi according to their generations; Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari: and the years of the life of Levi were an hundred thirty and seven years.

 17The sons of Gershon; Libni, and Shimi, according to their families.

 18And the sons of Kohath; Amram, and Izhar, and Hebron, and Uzziel: and the years of the life of Kohath were an hundred thirty and three years.

 19And the sons of Merari; Mahali and Mushi: these are the families of Levi according to their generations.

 20And Amram took him Jochebed his father’s sister to wife; and she bare him Aaron and Moses: and the years of the life of Amram were an hundred and thirty and seven years.

 21And the sons of Izhar; Korah, and Nepheg, and Zichri.

 22And the sons of Uzziel; Mishael, and Elzaphan, and Zithri.

 23And Aaron took him Elisheba, daughter of Amminadab, sister of Naashon, to wife; and she bare him Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.

 24And the sons of Korah; Assir, and Elkanah, and Abiasaph: these are the families of the Korhites.

 25And Eleazar Aaron’s son took him one of the daughters of Putiel to wife; and she bare him Phinehas: these are the heads of the fathers of the Levites according to their families.

 26These are that Aaron and Moses, to whom the LORD said, Bring out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt according to their armies.

 27These are they which spake to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring out the children of Israel from Egypt: these are that Moses and Aaron.

 28And it came to pass on the day when the LORD spake unto Moses in the land of Egypt,


Exodus 6:28-30 and Exodus 7:1-13:  Aaron is Moses’ Spokesperson

29That the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, I am the LORD: speak thou unto Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say unto thee.

 30And Moses said before the LORD, Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips, and how shall Pharaoh hearken unto me? (Exodus 6King James Version)

Exodus 7:1-25 : Aaron is Moses’ Spokesman

 1And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.

 2Thou shalt speak all that I command thee: and Aaron thy brother shall speak unto Pharaoh, that he send the children of Israel out of his land.

3And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt.

4But Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, that I may lay my hand upon Egypt, and bring forth mine armies, and my people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments.

 5And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I stretch forth mine hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them.

 6And Moses and Aaron did as the LORD commanded them, so did they.

 7And Moses was fourscore years old, and Aaron fourscore and three years old, when they spake unto Pharaoh.

 8And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

9When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Shew a miracle for you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it before Pharaoh, and it shall become a serpent.

 10And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the LORD had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent.

 11Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments.

 12For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods.

 13And he hardened Pharaoh’s heart, that he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.

Exodus 7:14-25:  The First Plague:  Waters Become Blood

 14And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh’s heart is hardened, he refuseth to let the people go.

 15Get thee unto Pharaoh in the morning; lo, he goeth out unto the water; and thou shalt stand by the river’s brink against he come; and the rod which was turned to a serpent shalt thou take in thine hand.

 16And thou shalt say unto him, The LORD God of the Hebrews hath sent me unto thee, saying, Let my people go, that they may serve me in the wilderness: and, behold, hitherto thou wouldest not hear.

 17Thus saith the LORD, In this thou shalt know that I am the LORD: behold, I will smite with the rod that is in mine hand upon the waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood.

 18And the fish that is in the river shall die, and the river shall stink; and the Egyptians shall lothe to drink of the water of the river.

 19And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of water, that they may become blood; and that there may be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood, and in vessels of stone.

 20And Moses and Aaron did so, as the LORD commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood.

 21And the fish that was in the river died; and the river stank, and the Egyptians could not drink of the water of the river; and there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt.

 22And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments: and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, neither did he hearken unto them; as the LORD had said.

 23And Pharaoh turned and went into his house, neither did he set his heart to this also.

 24And all the Egyptians digged round about the river for water to drink; for they could not drink of the water of the river.

 25And seven days were fulfilled, after that the LORD had smitten the river. (Exodus 7King James Version)

exodus 8 19

Exodus 8:1-32: The Second Plague: Frogs

 1And the LORD spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

 2And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy borders with frogs:

3And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into thine house, and into thy bedchamber, and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thine ovens, and into thy kneadingtroughs:

4And the frogs shall come up both on thee, and upon thy people, and upon all thy servants.

5And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth thine hand with thy rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt.

6And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt.

 7And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt.

 8Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, “Intreat the LORD, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my people; and I will let the people go, that they may do sacrifice unto the LORD.”

 9And Moses said unto Pharaoh, “Glory over me: when shall I intreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river only?”

 10And he said, “To morrow. And he said, Be it according to thy word: that thou mayest know that there is none like unto the LORD our God.

 11And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy houses, and from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the river only.”

 12And Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh: and Moses cried unto the LORD because of the frogs which he had brought against Pharaoh.

 13And the LORD did according to the word of Moses; and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of the fields.

 14And they gathered them together upon heaps: and the land stank.

 15But when Pharaoh saw that there was respite, he hardened his heart, and hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.

 16And the LORD said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.

 17And they did so; for Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in man, and in beast; all the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of Egypt.

 18And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not: so there were lice upon man, and upon beast.

 19Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, “This is the finger of God:” and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.

 20And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he cometh forth to the water; and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

 21Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.

22And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth.

23And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be.

 24And the LORD did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants’ houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies.

 25And Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, “Go ye, sacrifice to your God in the land.”

 26And Moses said, “It is not meet so to do; for we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to the LORD our God: lo, shall we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, and will they not stone us?

 27We will go three days’ journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to the LORD our God, as he shall command us.”

28And Pharaoh said, “I will let you go, that ye may sacrifice to the LORD your God in the wilderness; only ye shall not go very far away: intreat for me.”

29And Moses said, “Behold, I go out from thee, and I will intreat the LORD that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people, to morrow: but let not Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to the LORD.”

 30And Moses went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the LORD. (Exodus 8King James Version)


Exodus 9:1-35: The Fifth Plague: Livestock Diseased

 1Then the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

 2For if thou refuse to let them go, and wilt hold them still,

3Behold, the hand of the LORD is upon thy cattle which is in the field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon the oxen, and upon the sheep: there shall be a very grievous murrain.

 4And the LORD shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the children’s of Israel.

 5And the LORD appointed a set time, saying, To morrow the LORD shall do this thing in the land.

 6And the LORD did that thing on the morrow, and all the cattle of Egypt died: but of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one.

7And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the cattle of the Israelites dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the people go.

 8And the LORD said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh.

 9And it shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast, throughout all the land of Egypt.

 10And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast.

 11And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils; for the boil was upon the magicians, and upon all the Egyptians.

 12And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had spoken unto Moses.

 13And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

 14For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth.

15For now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smite thee and thy people with pestilence; and thou shalt be cut off from the earth.

16And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.

17As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that thou wilt not let them go?

18Behold, to morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the foundation thereof even until now.

19Send therefore now, and gather thy cattle, and all that thou hast in the field; for upon every man and beast which shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down upon them, and they shall die.

 20He that feared the word of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses:

 21And he that regarded not the word of the LORD left his servants and his cattle in the field.

 22And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt.

 23And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt.

 24So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.

25And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field.

 26Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.

 27And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, “I have sinned this time: the LORD is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.

 28Intreat the LORD (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer.”

 29And Moses said unto him, “As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the LORD; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth is the LORD’s.

 30But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the LORD God.” (Exodus 9King James Version)


In five minutes or less. I want to say that this Parsha is almost as intriguing as the first Parsha in the book of Exodus, which chronicles the lives of the children of Israel. Many of our ancestors who learn the hard way that sin does not pay. You seem to never get ahead for 413 years. Sounds like someone you know. I bet. Yet God remembers his friend, the righteous believer Abraham and he says that enough is enough. Much like the open square that the Angels of the LORD God once stood in after talking to Abraham and then Lot, then he destroys the area around Zoar, which is Sodom and Gommorrah city limits – in the land of Canaan. If you remember earlier, in Genesis 9, an earlier Parsha Noah warns Canaan, not Ham that impulsitivity would not be worthless.

Exodus 9:1-7:  The Plague on the Livestock

In the last chapter of the Memorial Parsha of Va’era God speaks to Moses and commands that he goes to Pharaoh once more and tells him, I AM, said “Let My People go.” If you continue to refuse to let My People then the hand of Jehovah will come against your livestock. Jehovah will make a distinction between your livestock and the livestock of the Israelites, and their livestock will not die.

This is amazing that God would continue to make a distinction between His People, because in this Parsha as well as Parsha Vayeshev (Genesis 37:1-40:23), Miketz (Genesis 41-Genesis 44:17),Vayigash (Genesis 44:18-47:27), and Vayechi (Genesis 47:28-Genesis 50:26) the Egyptians are rejecting the God’s Chosen People, the anointing of God is what they have rejected probably for a better eternity through Pharaoh and a diet free from lamb. It takes a lot of energy to reject a person, not just exalting yourself over that person but the times that you open up your religious book while I chewing on a snack, and then you wait till I stop chewing to board a public bus. Falsifying medical records and causes long errors because you don’t believe in the God of Israel, the God of the Hebrews and interfering with the anointing because you think in your sphere it is hyper-religion. It is very annoying to watch a person in 2010, spend a good amount of energy rejecting a person by refusing to eat a meal with that person, or waiting till they stop eating or leave the room to eat… and the meal is free – there is no credit card involved. Pharaoh investigated and saw that the livestock of the Israelites (lamb) was not impacted by the plague. Pharaoh continued sin and refused to repent and listen to the words of Moses, commanded of God.

Nevertheless, the next day, at the appointed time God did that thing. He caused all of the Egyptian livestock died. All of the lamb and the livestock in the field – livestock in the field—on your horses, donkeys and camels and on your cattle, sheep and goats of the Israelite’s did not die because had put a difference between them. The lamb is symbolical of the anointed Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Exodus 9:8-12:  The Plague of Boils

Then Jehovah spoke to Aaron and they did as LORD Your God commanded in the sight of Pharaoh. Moses took a handful of (ashes) soot as commanded of God, and threw the ashes in the air. The ashes were symbolical of the prayers and tears and frustrations of the saints. (Revelations 5:8). In very destitute times, you can only uses ashes and sackcloth from the furnace, or the last acceptable sacrifice. After Moses has thrown the ashes into the air, then the Egyptians and the magicians were inflicted with boils upon everyone in the land of Egypt. The LORD Your God hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he did not listen to them. (Exodus 7:13-14, 22; 8:32; 9:7; 9:12).

Exodus 9:13-33:  The Plague of Hail

God speaks to Moses again and prepares him to go before Pharaoh to speak on behalf of the Israelites so that they can be redeemed from the affliction of bondage, and all of the unnecessary burdens etc. Pharaoh had exalted himself against the people of God and refused to let them go.

God spoke to Moses, and he did as God commanded and stretched out his rod toward heaven and God caused hail upon the land of Egypt. God sent plagues that had never been seen in the land of Egypt, since it was a sovereign nation and the state worship was mandated idolatry. Yet, God raised Pharaoh up for this very reason and many lived through the eight or so plagues, but God had promised the next plague would be full force (hail upon the land of Egypt: hail and fire that smote all of the fields) and impacted the public officials. (Exodus 9:22-25). God said, “I have raised you up[a] for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth. 17 You still set yourself against my people and will not let them go.”

On the contrast, there was no hail in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel lived. (Isaiah 32:18,19; Exodus 9:26).

The next day God spoke the plague of hail on Egypt. The servants of Egypt who feared the word of God through the commands from Moses protected their property from the plague of hail, and brought theirselves, their slaves and their livestock – and anything of value indoors for shelter.

As God spoke, the next day a plague of Hail was sent throughout the entire land of Egypt, like never before. It was the worst storm in all the land of Egypt since it had become a nation. 25 Throughout Egypt hail struck everything in the fields—both people and animals etc. For instance, even the “31 the flax and barley were destroyed, since the barley had headed and the flax was in bloom. 32 The wheat and spelt, however, were not destroyed, because they ripen later.” (Exodus 9:31-32).

Again, Pharaoh pleaded with Moses and Aaron summons them and said that he is wrong and the people are wrong. Pharaoh admitted that he was wrong because he wanted the plague of hail to stop; and then he would let the people of God go to serve God and be His chosen. Moses left the city, and asked interceded to God on behalf of Pharaoh and the plague of hail stopped. Pharaoh’s heart hardened, and he did sinned again and he and his officials had hardened hearts – and did not let the people go.

In closing, there will come a people one day that will not assimilate or be anything other than a proud Jewish race, a proud Jewish religion and most importantly a proud Jewish Nationality. The people will serve God and usher in the last days of the Messiah. Although we are in the last days, the people will acknowledge the Messiah and will not worry about rejection. There will only be peace in the name of the One Lord, One Baptism, and One faith in God. (Ephesians 5:4).

Finally, the Haftorah is prophesied by the prophet Ezekiel that the kingdom of Tyrus that no longer exist lifted their hand as the heart and the is in the seat of God (Jerusalem). You have been in the garden of Eden, and you know what it is like for God to provide all of your needs, but there will be a time that you will be in war with other nations. Yet you still have been on the holy mountain of God (the hills in Jerusalem) for protection and you know that God is sovereign but as as a nation you will not. Next the prophecy is set against the Sidon, who has caused the House of Israel to be scattered amongst the nations. God’s hand of judgment will be in the midst of Sidon on every side: woods from the pestilence and bloodshed – and they shall know that “I AM” is Jehovah. No longer will Sidon, add wood to the fire of idolatry, nor shall Sidon be a grieving thorn just let by gones be gone even though you despised them and they shall know that I AM Jehovah. Even in a war torn land, Jehovah commands that 1) Ezekial 28:25 – 25Thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered, and shall be sanctified in them in the sight of the heathen, then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to my servant Jacob; 2) Ezekial 28:26 –  26And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses, and plant vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence, when I have executed judgments upon all those that despise them round about them; and they shall know that I am the LORD their God, which is Jehovah, The LORD Your GOD.

In the book of Ezekial the 29th Chapter,

1In the tenth year, in the tenth month, in the twelfth day of the month, the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

2Son of man, set thy face against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and prophesy against him, and against all Egypt:

3Speak, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon that lieth in the midst of his rivers, which hath said, My river is mine own, and I have made it for myself.

4But I will put hooks in thy jaws, and I will cause the fish of thy rivers to stick unto thy scales, and I will bring thee up out of the midst of thy rivers, and all the fish of thy rivers shall stick unto thy scales. more….

In the book of Ezekial, Chapter 29, eventually the gods in the land of Egypt, the King of Pharaoh would prove to fail the king of Egypt and throughout the land. Jehovah said Egypt shall no longer be a prominent nation because 15It shall be the basest of the kingdoms; neither shall it exalt itself any more above the nations: for I will diminish them, that they shall no more rule over the nations. The prophet Jeremiah announces the downfall of the Pharaoh’s (Pharaohonic) Dynasty. Yet, the House of Israel will have the strength in the midst of them to speak wisely in their natural tongue without fear of rejection and exile – the isms that come with a prophet outside the gates of Jerusalem because the Lord of Saboath is with them (Jeremiah 44:1-15; Isaiah 11:1).

  Dear Thalia,

The new majority in Congress intends to keep its promise of repealing and defunding ObamaCare:

New Speaker of the House, John Boehner, has called for a vote to repeal on Wednesday, January 12.

Add your signature to the ACLJ Petition to Repeal ObamaCare right now. We must let the politicians know that the majority of Americans oppose ObamaCare and want to see it repealed!

A federal judge has already ruled ObamaCare is unconstitutional because it penalizes people for taking no action – it will fine those who refuse to buy insurance in line with government-imposed standards.


Jesus Christs Memorial Parsha: Vayechi

Happy New Year and Best Wishes for a post holiday seasons’ greetings


Last week, we talked about the facilitator that does the unthinkable. They don’t have the help that they need to offer services – on the hours listed on paraphernalia.  People have to remember the cross; and that with that cross is your assignment, where as you are assigned. Unless you really want something from this fake steward, then you are going to have to go around a giant to get it, or resign to the fact that due to circumstances you are neither called; assigned; or chosen to see this task executed. Remember, the Church is not a movement, subtle actions can discourage others and cause some to stray or choose the unbeaten path, as a saint you must always walk and strive with God. With that being said, “you should spend all your time in this manner: God first; family and then professional entrepreneurship (and work last), but in that order. ” Yes, I can walk the talk. We are all sin, but my righteousness is that of Christ Jesus. I live a righteous life, and I love harder than anyone that I know. I lived subsistence, on public assistant, for many years, while my 23 year old and 15 year old – were small and I dealt with my health.

There are so many false prophets and wolves, that want to do nothing more than take over your church. To have access doesn’t mean that you need to remove or replace the Shepherd of the Flock. When you tell the truth, you won’t have a problem safely opening the doors and packing the pews. In doing this you can find a mate, but this person should be whom God should have you with a person who supports and illustrates the Kingdom of God, not limited to healing…. as oppose to an abomination. Desiring a mate that becomes your idol, or you give him your time (life); is not going to magically get you into the Kingdom of heaven by finding out which of your Egyptian ancestors is from an Israelite tribe. You have to enter the Kingdom of heaven like a little child, we all grow and you deserve the right to get to know the people that are in your life. You have to get to know your mate, at the same time this mate can not be an idea… you must be doer and hearer  (James 1:22). You must be a giver (salt, Mark 9:49) and a receiver (anointing). Luke 6:38: Proverbs 11:24-25; and Hebrews 11:13. Remember, you gotta work but your time is your life.

I have known people who pick and choose side, despising the Kingdom of God to the point that they do not want me to lay hands on the areas of their lives in which they need healing (Matthew 19:14). And Jesus said, 11 I say to you that many will come from the east and the west to share the banquet with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. 12 But the sons of the kingdom will be cast into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” 13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! As you have believed, so will it be done for you.” And his servant was healed at that very hour.…

I have said it once, you can live in a life of abomination… but would you rather see a person suffer than to be healed (Matthew 12:28)? Nevertheless, people have seen me have sickness and disability – and I didn’t hold onto it…. I testified about the goodness and glory of God. People will try to limit your service and your testimony which shall testaments to the glory of God.

Parsha Vayechi in a Nutshell:

Jacob lives in Egypt for 17 years, after reuniting with Joseph. He blesses Joseph and anoints his sons with a double blessing; the grandfather has bonus sons – Manasseh and Ephraim. This is only the beginning of Ephraim whom will have a difficult time remaining within the peripherals of the tribe. One by one he anoints each child, and acknowledges that you are still in the Kingdom of God, you are heritage of the Lord, and to seek the Promised Land. Some say there was more to say to his twelve sons – from a blended family. You are heirs to the Abrahamaic covenant, then you are in the kingdom of God (Matthew 19:14).


Judah the Lion

Judah will be the lawgiver, the scepter and King and Royalty over nations; a ferocious lion. Levi will be a royal nation of the priesthood. Issachar will be a pirate that works by the water, a fisher of the sea. Zebulun will be the educator; Simeon will stay away from Levi because of the massacre in Schechem – together, the two are double trouble; the tribe will be warriors. Gad will be the judge. Dan will press olives. And Asher will have a distinct look (Genesis 49:20). Reuben had saw his step mothers skirt while she was up the stairway, and should not have saw his mother nakedness. Furthermore, for additional examples of the Kingdom of God, during the early stages of the Church when it was a temple and tabernacle, read as follows:

Jacob’s Blessing – Gen. 49:3-4

“As for Asher, his food shall be rich, and he shall yield royal dainties.”

Moses Blessing – Deuteronomy 33:24

“And of Asher he said, ‘More blessed than sons is Asher; May he be favored by his brothers, and may he dip his foot in

oil. Your locks shall be iron and bronze, and according to your days so shall your leisurely walk be.”

Jacob’s Blessing – Gen. 49:3-4

“Reuben, you are my firstborn, my might, the first sign of my strength, excelling in honor, excelling in power. Turbulent as the waters, you will no longer excel, for you went up onto your father’s bed, onto my couch and defiled it.”

Moses’ Blessing – Deuteronomy 33:6

“Let Reuben live and not die, nor let his men be few.”

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 640 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 11 trips to carry that many people.
