“Amongst all the negative fallout of 9th Av, when the Nation failed in courage to enter and possess the Promised Land, yet, these consolations hold a Great Forecast. HaShem promises the Greatest festivity of all Time for the descendants of these very same people, the ‘Nation of Israel’, in a Marriage Festivity which will betroth them to Him forever!

Conclusion of the Torah
This is the 3rd last Weekly Torah Reading before the concluding of the Torah in Deut. Chapter 34. We have come to the end of the Annual Cycle in which the Torah is reviewed in 52 weekly sections. We have reached the End of the Torah as compiled by Moses to whom HaShem has entrusted the transferring of His Torah to His Nation and through them to the World. The Torah contains the terms and conditions of the Covenant which HaShem has concluded with His Nation, comparing to the terms Marriage Contract with His Bride, His Nation which will form the foundations of His Universal Kingdom ruling over all nations.
It is therefore a good time to review the link of the Torah to the entire Bible as the World has it today, which is claimed by its readers to represent the Word of God. We will also investigate the inclusion in the Bible of what amounts to be the ‘Oral Testimonies’ of the Messianic Movement which developed into the ‘Christian Bible’.
Our review of ‘The Bible’ will evaluate the overall effect of ‘The Bible’ in regard to the formation of the Universal Kingdom of Peace of the God of Israel which, according to Judaism, will result from the Final Redemption to take place at the conclusion of the End Time (which is generally believed to be the Time we are now entering into).
So, what was Yom Kippur all about today (9 Oct. 2019 – and every year?
Teshuvah, self-introspection, new hope, new vision, new convictions and new resolutions and new pledges.
For what purpose? To enjoy a happier more successful year 5780? Or is there something greater behind it all?
Is Yom Kippur only about Teshuvah, making right with HaShem and those around us whom we have failed – or is there something more of which this Sacred Day is a metaphoric, emblematic symbol or foresight?
The context of Haftarah Bereisheet indicates a Covenant relationship (Brit) with the Creator. The Divine declaration of this Haftarah claims the ‘Messenger of HaShem’ to be representing (thus being part of) that Brit. And logically, the Call should therefore be to a de-covenanted People to become part of or be restored to that Covenant. The question now arises whether this ‘Messenger’ refers to a de-covenanted Judah (who has never yet been de-covenanted by the God of Israel) or to the House of Israel (which has indeed been de-covenanted when the Kingdom of Israel split in two in the Time of Solomon’s rule). Or, does it refer to ‘someone’ else, like the Prophet Isaiah who is addressed in this Haftarah, or the ‘Messiah’ (as Christians would claim)?
It is increasingly becoming evident these days as “Knowledge is increasing” (Daniel 12:4) how general religious ‘clichés’ that are commonly used in Christianity and Judaism have no written Scriptural source in the Bible.
We will concern ourselves for this discussion with one such very common claim, that “the Jews have been appointed as ‘A Light unto the nations.’”
There are those who claim that this statement is nowhere to be found in Scripture. While this is true to some extent, the confirmation of this Divine Mandate underlies several Scriptures which indeed confirm this Mandate – and in a Way that leaves no doubt, even if somewhat concealed. In fact, in this way it is presented as an overall concept of the Way in which the Creator, God of Israel, has chosen to rule and regulate the World, at the same time thereby testing His would-be followers if they truly are prepared to follow HIS directives and not their own desires.
Parashot Bereisheet and Noach (last 2 weeks) have revealed great new insights to us regarding the identity of “The Light to the Nations.” Contrary to the general concept that it refers to ‘the Jews’, it has now become clear that it refers on a wider basis to the combined body of Jews and returning Ten Tribers. Hence it is a yet future event preceding the Geulah (Final Redemption).
(we use biblegateway.com) 1. The use of the word ‘Israel’ in the Scriptures The book of Genesis uses it almost extensively to address Jacob who was named ‘Israel’ by God. The book of Exodus starts using it for the descendents of Jacob, the nation that was formed in Egypt. Check general context of these texts […]
These questions flowing from our Parashat Vayerah, this week, may hold an astounding answer which could rattle the foundations both of Judaism and Christian Messianism.
Apart from the question about the 3 ‘Angels’ in this Parashah, there is the main question of “Can / did / does God appear to man?” Many readers will simply close the book on any further contemplations. The evidence though that our selected commentaries on this Parashah will present here, are sure to hold irrefutable reasons for re-consideration of the long held religious traditions which so destructively divide the Elect Nation of HaShem – on BOTH sides.
Parashat Vayerah may hold the hidden solution for defining the real foundations of the Ruling Kingdom to come of which BOTH factions of this Family feud has to be intrinsically part…
In a stunning historic development this week (17-23 November 2019 – 5780 Bible Calendar) the attention of the World has been drawn to the Original Bible Land – the much contested ‘Judea and Samaria.’ as being the legal right of the Jews to possess. This occurred when the President of the USA shocked the World with this declaration early in this week.
What does this mean for our Time and forward?
Tracing the word “descendants” vs. “Goyim” to expound on the Promise to Abraham
NOTE – The Blessing promises that HaShem will be the God of Abraham’s descendants and that these descendants will be part of the Covenant – … and ‘descendants’ are defined as GOYIM and ‘nations’ (Israel is ONE nation only).
