The Disciples of Jesus Christ’s Memorial Parsha of Shelach

June 5, 2010

The Memorial Parsha of Jesus Christ’s Shelach, Saturday, June 5th, 2010. Numbers 13 through Numbers 15:41

First giving honor to God and our distinguished guest. I am writing you today to apologize for the senseless acts that cost the lost of life at the Gaza boat and loading docs, at the port. It is with great sympathy that I express the lost of 9 lives during the Flotilla Humanitarian Aide. However the Israeli Defense was provoked and was threatened. Please know that an investigation will be completed and details will be made availabe respectively. Again, please accept my deepest condolescenses.

In the Memorial Parsha of Schlach, Moses puts his spirit in Joshua, the high priest. Unlike the Holy Spirit given to the artisans to do the work of the tabernacle in the Memorial Parsha at Exodus 25 – Exodus 31; and Exodus 36 – Exodus 39.  Moses puts his spirit on Joshua, which is zealous for the benefit of the children.  Also in this chapter, Moses sends spies out with Joshua to survey the promise land. Like previous memorial portions at Exodus 17:9, the Israelites fought with the descendants of Esau (Amalek). Nevertheless in this memorial portion the spies bring an evil report because the inhabitants look different to the men; which are the heads of the children of Israel.

In closing, the men of the heads of the children of Israel that went with Joshua to spy the land, in the valley of Eschol, and returned to Moses and Aaron and to all the children of Israel that was in the Wilderness Paran and also in the Wilderness of Kadesh – had brought back word of a negative report; and the spies also brought back fruit from the land. The men of the heads of the children of Israel brought back pomegranates, frogs, and branch of a cluster of grapes.  The men that were heads of the children of Israel were plagued before God, and died (1 Corinthian 10:10).

I think that if I was on a divine mission that I would not have eaten the fruit or drink form the vine of the fruits in the land of Canaan because the land had not produced a Sabbath (Number 14:43).  As I look closely at the memorial portions that we learned earlier at Leviticus 26:35; Leviticus 25:2; Leviticus 27:28-30. I believe that if the people would have planned to tithe and the seed of the land or a fruit of a tree is the LORD; the tithe of the firstlings shall be most holy unto the LORD God.  

Caleb had a different spriti

In the end the remainder of the children of Israel that attempted to go into the Promise Land before the forty years was up and they were smote by the descendants of Esau; but Joshua and Caleb lived, because Caleb had a different spirit. (Numbers 14: 24 – Moses said, “But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land where into he went; and his seed shall possess it.”). And, the children of Israel wondered in the wilderness for forty years.

Numbers 15:

 1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

 2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land of your habitations, which I give unto you,

 3And will make an offering by fire unto the LORD, a burnt offering, or a sacrifice in performing a vow, or in a freewill offering, or in your solemn feasts, to make a sweet savour unto the LORD, of the herd or of the flock:

 4Then shall he that offereth his offering unto the LORD bring a meat offering of a tenth deal of flour mingled with the fourth part of an hin of oil.

 5And the fourth part of an hin of wine for a drink offering shalt thou prepare with the burnt offering or sacrifice, for one lamb.

 6Or for a ram, thou shalt prepare for a meat offering two tenth deals of flour mingled with the third part of an hin of oil.

 7And for a drink offering thou shalt offer the third part of an hin of wine, for a sweet savour unto the LORD.

 8And when thou preparest a bullock for a burnt offering, or for a sacrifice in performing a vow, or peace offerings unto the LORD:

 9Then shall he bring with a bullock a meat offering of three tenth deals of flour mingled with half an hin of oil.

 10And thou shalt bring for a drink offering half an hin of wine, for an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

 11Thus shall it be done for one bullock, or for one ram, or for a lamb, or a kid.

 12According to the number that ye shall prepare, so shall ye do to every one according to their number.

 13All that are born of the country shall do these things after this manner, in offering an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

 14And if a stranger sojourn with you, or whosoever be among you in your generations, and will offer an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD; as ye do, so he shall do.

 15One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourneth with you, an ordinance for ever in your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger be before the LORD.

 16One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you.

 17And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

 18Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land whither I bring you,

 19Then it shall be, that, when ye eat of the bread of the land, ye shall offer up an heave offering unto the LORD.

 20Ye shall offer up a cake of the first of your dough for an heave offering: as ye do the heave offering of the threshingfloor, so shall ye heave it.

 21Of the first of your dough ye shall give unto the LORD an heave offering in your generations.

 22And if ye have erred, and not observed all these commandments, which the LORD hath spoken unto Moses,

 23Even all that the LORD hath commanded you by the hand of Moses, from the day that the LORD commanded Moses, and henceforward among your generations;

 24Then it shall be, if ought be committed by ignorance without the knowledge of the congregation, that all the congregation shall offer one young bullock for a burnt offering, for a sweet savour unto the LORD, with his meat offering, and his drink offering, according to the manner, and one kid of the goats for a sin offering.

 25And the priest shall make an atonement for all the congregation of the children of Israel, and it shall be forgiven them; for it is ignorance: and they shall bring their offering, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD, and their sin offering before the LORD, for their ignorance:

 26And it shall be forgiven all the congregation of the children of Israel, and the stranger that sojourneth among them; seeing all the people were in ignorance.

 27And if any soul sin through ignorance, then he shall bring a she goat of the first year for a sin offering.

 28And the priest shall make an atonement for the soul that sinneth ignorantly, when he sinneth by ignorance before the LORD, to make an atonement for him; and it shall be forgiven him.

 29Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, both for him that is born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them.

 30But the soul that doeth ought presumptuously, whether he be born in the land, or a stranger, the same reproacheth the LORD; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people. (Numbers 15, King James Version)

    1ST Corinthian 10:10:

     1Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;

     2And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;

     3And did all eat the same spiritual meat;

     4And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

     5But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.

     6Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.

     7Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.

     8Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.

     9Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.

     10Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

     11Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

     12Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

     13There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. (1 Corinthians 10:1-13, King James Version)
