For two years Israel has been sheltered under the safe haven of Mount Sinai, but now its time to hit the road. And, with a new journey of course come new dangers. But before they can walk one step the priests clearly need a refresher course to avoid more people dying, the entire military camp is reorganized and, lest we forget, Moshe very nearly has a nervous breakdown before having to deal with a rebellion led by his brother and sister! All in a day’s work, but then there is that mysterious calendar code (in the Scroll to Scroll version) where the Israelites walk out time mirroring the stars of heaven. This is one packed parsha that’s not to be missed!
Welcome to the Great Feast that has more names and prophetic-Scriptural applications than any other. Shavuot has gone from a harvest festival where some of the most important events of the patriarchs happened centuries before Moshe was born, to the day the Ten Commandments were given to the “birthday” of Christianity where it seems almost every “fact” about Acts 2 seems misunderstood or misdirected. Shavuot has ramifications also that reach deep into the Gospels all the way into the heart of Revelation. Explore the spiritual controversies and politics and get to harvest the truth behind this most amazing yet enigmatic of feasts.
Calendar controversies? Challenges in recovering precise years of historical events that the whole nation agrees on? Not this time. If ever there was proof that ancient Israel could not function without unanimity on when their events happened and the timing of the Feasts, it is in this parsha. Learn all about the intricate rules for the Land Sabbath and Jubilee, the key events that if not agreed on and followed lead to disaster and how the true knowledge of these timings has come back to Elohim’s people!
It’s been several months since the deaths of Nadab and Abihu, since the nation of Israel and her priesthood teetered on the brink of extinction. But Father Yah has deliberated and decided they all will continue, but the priests and the people they serve must get serious about keeping the Torah without excuses or confusion. Also a special insider look of the Zadokite priesthood from one who knows all about them, the prophet Ezekiel, and why they are so indispensable to our apocalyptic future, followed by an in-depth look at what Colossians 2 does, and more importantly, what it does NOT mean, wrapping up with the ins and outs of blasphemy as well.
It’s just a skin disease; a medical condition like any other. Or is it? Even the sages cannot decide this seemingly simple question. Is leprosy divine judgment for a moral failure or just another kind of defilement that happens in the course of normal living? Can it be equated to any known ski disease today? And if it has nothing to do with today’s skin diseases, why do the medical protocols in this part of Leviticus still being used today with great medical effectiveness? Also: When Y’shua heals the woman with the 12 year flow of blood, did the power come only from Y’shua or from his Father and what does that answer reveal about the relationship between the Father and the Son? One thing is for certain: These mysteries certainly don’t just run skin deep!
Tazria. One chapter gives us intimate details about what Messiah’s earthly parents will go through bringing him into the world. The other chapter reveals the true reasons why Messiah kept saying to those he healed of leprosy “Go and show yourselves to the priests”. Messiah is in fact all over this short yet very powerful portion. Also we’ll have an update on some of the latest research surrounding Passion Week and how to clarify what seems to be hopelessly contradictory and confusing language describing the day Messiah died. It’s a surprising conclusion, to say the least.
It’s five priests for more than 2 million Israelites. That is, until it’s down to only three because Nadav and Avihu die for their rebellion against Father Yah. Even more socking, neither their father Aaron nor their brothers are allowed to bury them, because then the whole priesthood is at risk and, along with it, the fate of the entire nation. What Moshe and Aaron do now will literally determine the fate of an entire nation. No pressure guys, but whatever you do, you better do it soon!
Welcome to the ordination of the priests, where one mistake can cost you your life and put a nation of more than 2 million in jeopardy. But Tzav is about far more than just a series of regulations regarding purity and sacrifices. It reaches deep into the secrets of time and history that are embedded in its text. Enjoy the journey!
As the third book of Moshe opens, we are right back where we were at the end of Exodus. The Tabernacle is being erected and the detailed instructions for establishing the priesthood are being given. But there is so much else going on in this parsha than details on how to do burnt offerings! Our Messiah Y’shua is literally all over this text, sometimes in very surprising ways. Also find out about the latest calendar controversy literally just in time for Pesach and an counter missionary attack on Messiah that appeared to some so scary, that even a professional NT Greek scholar came to me for help on it. See the tricks and traps the counter missionaries use to twist the Torah and deny Messiah, from one who used to do that very thing (yes I mean me).
