Happy Shabbat: Yovel @ May 16, 2009

May 15, 2009

Does the world know that we are priest? (Exodus 19:6; Exodus 15:25-26)

Parshah Behar-Bechukotai – Leviticus 25:1-27:34

Torah Reading for Week of May 10-16, 2009 – Iyar 16-22 5769

Wow this has been a really busy week, and I haven’t had a chance to translate any military transcripts. Lots of news articles have been coming in from the swine-flu epidemic to the highest court making the interrogation pictures released to the general public.

On the home front there is a festival at an orthodox church, and an equal rights rally and torah study. Plus, I am feeling a little under the weather. I may go home and eat fried fish and coleslaw because it is light.

In this portion God is moving more on the regulations of the land. The land has to rest, one person said that the regulations are no longer in effect because the twelve tribes are non-existence (Matthew 11:28). This may be true because there are aliens that believe that they have the power to stroke your identity away, or maybe the records were destroyed. However I can’t believe because the other tribes were carried away in exile and refuse to a) sanctify theirselves and b)

Last week in Parsha Acharei-Kedoshim, God gives my ancestor another everlasting covenant that is taken from the children of Israel (Ezekiel 44:28, 29; Leviticus 6:16; 26; Leviticus 3:17; Leviticus 10:14, 15; Numbers 18:11; Jeremiah 9:20; Numbers 12:12 and Psalm 88:4), God’s children which is their sign of an everlasting covenant. Yet there are so many forms of religion that don’t even see what God is doing for his chosen elect on Sabbath. Ministry is a lot of money and so other people want to put their mark on the scriptures. God requires us to be most holy in Leviticus chapters 17, 25 and 29 and in the 28th Chapter of Numbers (Numbers 18:9, 10 and Leviticus 10:12; Leviticus 2:4 and Exodus 29:2) etc.

Like yesterday my neighbor asked me why I did not have any guys over my house, she says she thoroughly enjoys her life partner, and he enjoys her as well. I told her first of all, who I would choose in this area that God has released all of his plagues on and the people can not be healed. The mouth has the power and life and death and it is up to you rather or not you rather or not you receive God’s word that delivers you into healing. Exodus 23:25-26 and Exodus 19:6).

I told her the same thing I told a drunk earlier today, and that is you never know when you will be called back into duty to be a priest. A gentile can not be a priest to a Jew, this is not cliché. When you began to explain your doctrine and the covenant of peace that God extends to the gentile you are already back on duty. So why go messing it up trying to be cool and abusing alcohol and letting men sleep with you in a high risk area for incurable S-T-D’s, it seems like the strain in my town is fierce. I watched a white guy get jealous because there is going to be a march this weekend, and I told him that Black people needed a leader and he said he knew but his raced did not have one that could make wise and intelligible decisions for his people, since they are in fact in power and control everything. I told him still 55% of minorities’ will not graduate on time.

Leviticus 24:7-8

7And thou shalt put pure frankincense upon each row that it may be on the bread for a memorial, even an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

8Every Sabbath he shall set it in order before the LORD continually, being taken from the children of Israel by an everlasting covenant.

9And it shall be Aaron\’s and his sons\’; and they shall eat it in the holy place: for it is most holy unto him of the offerings of the LORD made by fire by a perpetual statute.

Chapter 25 – What? God describes what he wants to occur in the seventh year, the year of jubilee

1. And the Lord spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai, saying,

א. וַיְדַבֵּר יְ־הֹוָ־ה אֶל מֹשֶׁה בְּהַר סִינַי לֵאמֹר:

2. Speak to the children of Israel and you shall say to them: When you come to the land that I am giving you, the land shall rest a Sabbath to the Lord.

ב. דַּבֵּר אֶל בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וְאָמַרְתָּ אֲלֵהֶם כִּי תָבֹאוּ אֶל הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר אֲנִי נֹתֵן לָכֶם וְשָׁבְתָה הָאָרֶץ שַׁבָּת לַי־הֹוָ־ה:

3. You may sow your field for six years, and for six years you may prune your vineyard, and gather in its produce,

ג. שֵׁשׁ שָׁנִים תִּזְרַע שָׂדֶךָ וְשֵׁשׁ שָׁנִים תִּזְמֹר כַּרְמֶךָ וְאָסַפְתָּ אֶת תְּבוּאָתָהּ:

4. But in the seventh year, the land shall have a complete rest a Sabbath to the Lord; you shall not sow your field, nor shall you prune your vineyard.

ד. וּבַשָּׁנָה הַשְּׁבִיעִת שַׁבַּת שַׁבָּתוֹן יִהְיֶה לָאָרֶץ שַׁבָּת לַי־הֹוָ־ה שָׂדְךָ לֹא תִזְרָע וְכַרְמְךָ לֹא תִזְמֹר:

Chapter 25 – Why? God explains the harvesting of the produce and the livestock and of the beast that shall be for food.

Leviticus 25:12 – For it is the jubilee; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field.

Jesus said, The Gospel according to Matthew – Matthew 9:17 (New International Version) 17Neither do men pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.\”

5. You shall not reap the after growth of your harvest, and you shall not pick the grapes you had set aside [for yourself], [for] it shall be a year of rest for the land.

ה. אֵת סְפִיחַ קְצִירְךָ לֹא תִקְצוֹר וְאֶת עִנְּבֵי נְזִירֶךָ לֹא תִבְצֹר שְׁנַת שַׁבָּתוֹן יִהְיֶה לָאָרֶץ:

6. And [the produce of] the Sabbath of the land shall be yours to eat for you, for your male and female slaves, and for your hired worker and resident who live with you,

ו. וְהָיְתָה שַׁבַּת הָאָרֶץ לָכֶם לְאָכְלָה לְךָ וּלְעַבְדְּךָ וְלַאֲמָתֶךָ וְלִשְׂכִירְךָ וּלְתוֹשָׁבְךָ הַגָּרִים עִמָּךְ:

7. And all of its produce may be eaten [also] by your domestic animals and by the beasts that are in your land.

ז. וְלִבְהֶמְתְּךָ וְלַחַיָּה אֲשֶׁר בְּאַרְצֶךָ תִּהְיֶה כָל תְּבוּאָתָהּ לֶאֱכֹל:

Chapter 25 – When? The ultimate year of Jubilee is determined when you return to your family and your property etc.

Leviticus 25:8-11

8And thou shalt number seven Sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven Sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years.

9Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month; in the Day of Atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.

10And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.

11A jubilee shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which growth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed.

A lot of people tell me that my family messed up and God knew they would and I tell them that are not true. From careful and diligent research I find that not only Jesus but his mother Mary also descended from the line of Aaron. Therefore the strength of Aaron fashioned in the horns of the (royal) House of David demonstrated that God wanted holiness. Jesus’ righteousness empowers us to have a kind of holiness that would bring light and salvation to the world. One day God will redeem his people back to Zion. However, in the biblical sense and I don’t think it was allegory there were actually wild animals that would come up to the property and attack the Israelites, and I don’t think it was an occasional search and hunt party of bears at a picnic, this is how God shows us that you still have the ability to walk on Eden, if though you have been kicked out of the Garden of Eden.

Leviticus 25:17-1817Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God: for I am the LORD your God. Then there is the New Testament, the First Epistle of John and one many epistles of mine (1 John 4:18). The next chapter, he goes on to say that the presence, the Holy Spirit, a fresh spirit of God bears witness that Jesus is the Son of God, and you shall have everlasting life (Matthew 14:33).

1st John 4:18 – 18There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. Brothers and sisters you shall not be ashamed of Jesus Christ.

The provisions of the Seventh Year

Leviticus 25:18 – 18Wherefore ye shall do my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them; and ye shall dwell in the land in safety.

So after the Israelites sanctified theirself, then they could be ready to receive the year of Jubilee if they obeyed Gods word and chose the holy directions spoken by Moses: 19And the land shall yield her fruit, and ye shall eat your fill, and dwell therein in safety.

Leviticus 26:2 – God says that you shall keep my Sabbaths and reverence My sanctuary: I am the Lord. And if you keep his Sabbaths and reverence his sanctuary then he will fulfill his promise of blessing and retribution. In verse 7 of chapter 26 of the book of Leviticus he says that how can you chase your enemies, and they shall fall by the sword before you. In verse 8 he says that five you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight; your enemies shall fall by the sword before you. You walk into all of this by sanctifying yourself before the Lord by choosing to be holy and offering sacrifice to the Priest for atonement i.e., wave offering Leviticus 7:31; heave offering Leviticus 7:32; trespass offering Leviticus 7:1,10 etc.

Redeeming Persons and Property Dedicated to God.

1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When a man shall make a singular vow, the persons shall be for the LORD by thy estimation.

Leviticus 27:30-34 – 30And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD\’s: it is holy unto the LORD.

31And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof.

32And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD.

33He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the change thereof shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.

34These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.

In closing we can see that God builds a trust with the Israelites. Although the trust is much more superior than the trust that the federal government has with the tribes that it dispossess. Here in the scriptures God promises to balance the title of the land to be hold to the Lord.

Remember you are righteous and although you may not be on notice that you are a disciple, you are witness to God that the believer is righteous. Have a blessed weekend.

Matthew 10:40 – 40\”He who receives you receives me, and he who receives me receives the one who sent me. 41Anyone who receives a prophet because he is a prophet will receive a prophet\’s reward, and anyone who receives a righteous man because he is a righteous man will receive a righteous man\’s reward. 42And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward.\”

P.S.: to my darling oldest sister, you are ugly and you misquote the scriptures, ha ha ha. Jesus said he desires mercy, and you misquoted the scripture and said obedience (Matthew 9:13 and Hose 6:6).

13But go and learn what this means: \’I desire mercy, not sacrifice.\’[a] For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.\”


  1. Matthew 9:13 Hosea 6:6


The Jubilee Year (2008).
