Naso 2019

Nasso 2019

Parsha Naso  2019                                                                             June 15, 2019

Numbers 4:21-7:89,  haftarah Judges 13:2-5, New Covenant: Luke 1:11-20

At 176 verses, Naso is the longest single parsha in all the Torah. It covers five important topics, including the Aaronic blessing, which we have come to dearly love and proclaim upon all for whom we are praying.  The census of the Levites, the gifts presented by the leaders of the 12 tribes for the dedication of the Tabernacle, the instructions regarding the wife suspected of adultery, and, the Nazarite vow are also included this week. We will briefly comment on each and demonstrate how they are related.

The word “naso”, Strong’s 5375, deserves some attention. The English translation used in the opening of our parsha is generally “take” and it also means to “elevate”, “lift up” and “bear”.  But, according to Strong’s Concordance, it also means “to forgive, to pardon, to accept, to marry, and to exalt.

NC sues to continue taxpayer-funded abortion

22 extremely hostile statesDid you know that Planned Parenthood identified North Carolina in 2016 as one of 22 states “extremely hostile” to abortion?

But, that may be about to change. North Carolina this week took a SHOCKING STEP in the direction that New York and other liberal states are marching.  NC Governor Roy Cooper and Attorney General Josh Stein joined New York and 20 liberal states, including California, Vermont, Oregon, and Colorado in a lawsuit against President Trump’s plan to remove up to $60 million from Planned Parenthood. 

NORTH CAROLINA IS THE ONLY STATE IN THE BIBLE BELT that has joined this lawsuit to force taxpayers to continue to fund Planned Parenthood. THE BODY OF MESSIAH must NOT allow this!

The LIBERALS ARE CAPTIVES who have been deceived by the enemy. Following our Savior’s example, we forgive them “for they know not what they do.” (Luke 23:34) Jesus commanded us to LOVE OUR ENEMIES, BLESS THEM, AND PRAY FOR THEM (Mat. 5:44).

WE are the ones who must repent! The Scripture says, “If MY PEOPLE… will humble themselves and pray and turn from THEIR wicked ways“… THEN I will heal their land.” (2 Chron. 7:14)  WE must REPENT on behalf of the wicked ways of the Body of Messiah. WE ARE GUILTY! WE have ignored fornication, adultery, pornography, and sex trafficking, the sins that have made abortion “necessary” in the eyes of those who do not know our Savior’s love, grace, and mercy. WE have slept and have given dominion to the “powers and principalities in high places.” WE who have been given ALL POWER AND AUTHORITY IN HIS NAME, have sat on our “blessed assurance” and allowed our nation to sink to a new low. 

WE must REPENT FIRST, then ask God, who is able to do exceedingly more than ALL we can ask or think, to UNITE HIS BODY, to turn this around, to end the holocaust of abortion, to bring the captives to repentance AND into the KINGDOM, so that once again, the “powers and principalities” will be “spoiled” by His triumphing over them (Col. 2:15).  HE IS ABLE! But, WE CANNOT REMAIN SILENT! WE have to arise and work together! In unity by HIS SPIRIT!

Thank God for a President who wants to end taxpayer funded abortions! If you support President Trump’s Protect Life Rule, which redirects Title X Family Planning funds AWAY FROM THE ABORTION INDUSTRY and BARS NC TAXPAYERS FROM FUNDING SO-CALLED “FAMILY PLANNING CLINICS” which REFER PATIENTS to ABORTION PROVIDERS INSTEAD OF TO CRISIS PREGNANCY CENTERS, YOUR VOICE NEEDS TO BE HEARD IMMEDIATELY in Heaven and on earth!!!

Please SIGN THE PETITION! Inform Governor Cooper that you DO NOT SUPPORT taxpayer funded abortions. FORWARD THIS EMAIL to your friends, neighbors, and congregation in North Carolina who share our concern and values.

Talk about this at the dinner table over the weekend and take time to plead with God to INTERVENE. Discuss this in your Sunday School classes. Inform your pastor and church leaders! Call a prayer meeting! And don’t forget, “where there are two or three,” He is in our midst! (Mat. 18:20) Please don’t delay!  

And IF you find yourself lacking faith to believe that God’s people in North Carolina can stand against this tide of evil and win, PLEASE STOP and INCREASE YOUR FAITH by meditating on the WORD OF GOD (see below), for HE IS ABLE!

Thank you!

Now to HIM WHO IS ABLE to do far beyond all that we ask or imagine, by means of His power that works in us.  (Eph 3:20) 

… for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day.  (2 Tim 1:12)

 … for there is no other god who is able to rescue in this way.” (Dan. 3:29)

   … “O LORD, God of our fathers,are you not God in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. In Your hand are power and might, so that none is able to withstand You.  (2 Chron. 20:6)

 Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is Yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and You are exalted as head above all. (1 Chron. 29:11)

[Jesus] said to them… “For truly, I say to you,  if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed,  you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’  and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” (Mat. 17:20)

The LORD passed before (Moses) and proclaimed,  “The LORD, the LORD, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin… (Exo. 34:6-7a)

Gosnell: Abortion on Trial?

GosnellHave you seen it yet?

This film made me realize that if the laws enacted in New York and other states to allow abortion up to the day of birth had been in place in Philadelphia in 2011, Kermit Gosnell, who murdered tens if not hundred of LIVE babies, might likely never have been investigated or prosecuted and tried.

Thank God for this TOTALLY GRIPPING and POWERFUL tool, which, by the way, was produced against all odds, see article below! I pray it will open the eyes of MANY to RISE UP AND CRY OUT against this unspeakable evil.

HE IS ABLE!

babyAbba Father, YEHOVAH, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,

We are deeply grateful for a president who desires that every child in the womb be raised by loving parents. We thank You for every step that has been taken to end the shedding of innocent blood.

We are angry, shocked, and deeply grieved over the recent increased legislation in America to enlarge the abomination of abortion, even to killing babies born alive.

Most Holy and Sovereign Elohim, we thank You for exposing the plan of the enemy, for stirring us up, and for exposing our apathy. We ask You for a turnaround in Your Body and we declare YOU ARE ABLE!

You have said in Your Word,

If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chron. 7:14)

We, therefore, beseech You for an enormous, dramatic, immediate, complete, permanent HOLY SHIFT in the hearts of YOUR PEOPLE to understand our individual and corporate “wicked ways.”

He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever lives to make intercession for them (Heb. 7:25)

May it be so! We declare YOU ARE ABLE!

We beseech You to expose wrong thinking in Your Body concerning every sin that makes abortion and all shedding of innocent blood “necessary” in the eyes of those who don’t know Your love, power, and grace

Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body, according to the working whereby He is able even to subdue [cause to obey, to subordinate, put in subjection to, cause to yield to admonition, cause to submit]  all things unto Himself. (Phil. 3:21)

May it be so! We declare YOU ARE ABLE!

We beseech You to strengthen, encourage, assist, relieve, and comfort every senator, representative, leader, soldier, and intercessor who is fighting this battle and every woman who is at this moment considering abortion.

For Because He Himself suffered when put to the test, He is able to help [[deliver, protect, preserve, heal, make whole] those being tested. (Heb. 2:18 TLV)  

May it be so! We declare YOU ARE ABLE!

We beseech You to continually raise up others from every age group and segment of YOUR PEOPLE to come to the front lines. We also ask You for strategies to persuade YOUR PEOPLE that purity prevents regrets.  We further ask You to intervene in the lives of pregnant women who want to abort or think they have no other choice.

“…for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day.” (1Tim 1:12)

May it be so! We declare YOU ARE ABLE!

We beseech You for mercy for Nancy Pelosi and all those in office* who voted against or oppose the Born Alive Protection Act.  For the sake of Your great name and Your glory we ask You to humble them as You did King Nebuchadnezzar, who repented and gave allegiance to You and exhorted his subjects to do likewise.

Now, I, Nebuchadnezzar,praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and His ways judgment: and those that walk in pride He is able to abase [humiliate, cast down, make low, subdue] (Dan. 4:37).

May it be so! We declare YOU ARE ABLE!

We thank You that yesterday, today, and forever You are “God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin.” Bowing in repentance, we humbly ask You to forgive us and cleanse us of all unrighteousness. We ask, as well, that You bring the gift of repentance and restoration to all who are in rebellion against You and Your Word. We ask all these things in the name of Jesus/Yeshua Your Son.

Glory to God! May it be so! We declare YOU ARE ABLE!

Who does God call “MY PEOPLE” and “HIS PEOPLE”?  

                                                               

Drybones replacement theology.gif

It is doubtful that the decision makers at UNESCO spend much time reading Scripture. Considering the vast numbers of denominations and the various versions of replacement theology found today among those who profess to follow Jesus (or Yeshua), maybe it would be good for all of us to consider the verses where God addresses “MY PEOPLE” and “HIS PEOPLE.”

Before we begin, we would do well to recall that Jacob, whose name was changed to Israel, had twelve sons who became twelve tribes. The Jewish people today consist of a remnant of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, with some Levites and a handful of the others, along with some from the nations who have converted.

The Jewish people today are roughly 14 million people, only about .2% of the global population. Yet, God promised that Abraham’s offspring would be “as the dust of the earth” (Gen. 13:16).

The promise was extended to Jacob:

“Your offspring shall be like the dust of the earth; and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south, and in you and your offspring shall all the families of the earth be blessed.” (Gen. 28:14)

14 million people is hardly “as the dust of the earth.” So, we have to ask: Where are the rest of Jacob’s children?

The Jewish sages surmise that only 20% of the Jews returned to the land with Ezra and Nehemiah from the 70 year exile to Babylon. Long before Judah’s exile, the other ten tribes, the former Northern Kingdom, a.k.a. House of Israel or Ephraim, was carried away, first, into gross idolatry by Jeroboam when God divided Solomon’s kingdom after his death, and, second. into exile by the king of Assyria in 721 BC. (I Kings 11:26 to 14:20, 2 Kings 15:29, 17:5,6,24)

Could it be that Jacob’s seed is hidden among the world’s religions?

world_religions_pie_chart

Hmmm. That brings to mind something Yeshua said:

He (Jesus) told them another parable. “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven that a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened.” Mat. 13:33

Jesus suffered and died so that those from the nations might have the opportunity to be grafted in to Israel and serve in His kingdom. Could it be that large numbers of Jacob’s offspring are even now hidden among the nations and don’t even know it?

How should Yeshua’s followers respond to this extensive list of verses directly addressing “MY PEOPLE” and “HIS PEOPLE”?

As the list begins, it’s very clear that God is speaking directly to Israel. Does He at some point stop calling Israel “My people”? I can only find a couple of verses in which Gentiles are included in the phrase “His people,” but even then He makes it very clear that Israel is “His inheritance.”

Why is this important?

If we identify as Gentiles, we are outside of the New Covenant, as this list will make abundantly clear.  There are only two classifications of people in Scripture: Gentiles and Israel. God calls himself the “God of Israel” over two hundred times!  I don’t see any way around it. If we are HIS PEOPLE, we are indeed grafted in to Israel (just as Paul said) and, therefore, we FORMER Gentiles have become Israelites, just like Ruth, who said to Naomi, “Your people shall be my people and Your God my God.”(Ruth 1:16)

And, IF we are part-and-parcel of Israel, along with the Jewish people, we have certain responsibilities in order to be the light of the world that Yeshua said His disciples would be (Mat. 5:14). The purpose of being the light of the world is to draw all men, first, to Yeshua for cleansing from sin, second to study His instruction in order to stay free from sin and begin the process of restoration, and, third, to become a disciple in order to teach others the gospel of the kingdom.

“The entrance of Your word brings light; it gives understanding to the simple.” (Psalm 119:130)

He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches!

1Sa. 9:17  When Samuel saw Saul, the LORD told him, “Here is the man of whom I spoke to you! He it is who shall restrain MY PEOPLE.”

2Sa. 3:18  Now then bring it about, for the LORD has promised David, saying, ‘By the hand of my servant David I will save MY PEOPLE Israel from the hand of the Philistines, and from the hand of all their enemies.'”

2Sa. 5:2  In times past, when Saul was king over us, it was you who led out and brought in Israel. And the LORD said to you, ‘You shall be shepherd of MY PEOPLE Israel, and you shall be prince over Israel.'”

2Sa. 7:7  In all places where I have moved with all the people of Israel, did I speak a word with any of the judges of Israel, whom I commanded to shepherd MY PEOPLE Israel, saying, “Why have you not built me a house of cedar?”‘

1Ki. 8:16  ‘Since the day that I brought MY PEOPLE Israel out of Egypt, I chose no city out of all the tribes of Israel in which to build a house, that my name might be there. But I chose David to be over MY PEOPLE Israel.’

1Ki. 16:2  “Since I exalted you out of the dust and made you leader over MY PEOPLE Israel, and you have walked in the way of Jeroboam and have made MY PEOPLE Israel to sin, provoking me to anger with their sins,

2Ch. 1:11  God answered Solomon, “Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked for possessions, wealth, honor, or the life of those who hate you, and have not even asked for long life, but have asked for wisdom and knowledge for yourself that you may govern MY PEOPLE over whom I have made you king,

2Ch. 6:5  ‘Since the day that I brought MY PEOPLE out of the land of Egypt, I chose no city out of all the tribes of Israel in which to build a house, that my name might be there, and I chose no man as prince over MY PEOPLE Israel;

Psa. 14:2  The LORD looks down from heaven on the children of man, to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God. 3)  They have all turned aside; together they have become corrupt; there is none who does good, not even one. 4)  Have they no knowledge, all the evildoers who eat up MY PEOPLE as they eat bread and do not call upon the LORD?

Psa. 50:7  “Hear, O MY PEOPLE, and I will speak; O Israel, I will testify against you. I am God, your God.

Psa. 81:11  “But MY PEOPLE did not listen to my voice; Israel would not submit to me.

Psa. 81:13  Oh, that MY PEOPLE would listen to me, that Israel would walk in my ways!

Isa. 1:3  The ox knows its owner, and the donkey its master’s crib, but Israel does not know, MY PEOPLE do not understand.”

Isa. 3:12  MY PEOPLE—infants are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O MY PEOPLE, your guides mislead you and they have swallowed up the course of your paths.

Isa. 3:15  What do you mean by crushing MY PEOPLE, by grinding the face of the poor?” declares the Lord GOD of hosts.

Isa. 5:13  Therefore MY PEOPLE go into exile for lack of knowledge; their honored men go hungry, and their multitude is parched with thirst.

Isa. 10:2  to turn aside the needy from justice and to rob the poor of MY PEOPLE of their right, that widows may be their spoil, and that they may make the fatherless their prey!

Isa. 10:24  Therefore thus says the Lord GOD of hosts: “O MY PEOPLE, who dwell in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrians when they strike with the rod and lift up their staff against you as the Egyptians did.

Isa. 19:25  whom the LORD of hosts has blessed, saying, “Blessed be Egypt MY PEOPLE, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel my inheritance.”

Isa. 26:20  Come, MY PEOPLE, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the fury has passed by.

Isa. 40:1  Comfort, comfort MY PEOPLE, says your God.

Isa. 47:6  I was angry with MY PEOPLE; I profaned my heritage; I gave them into your hand; you showed them no mercy; on the aged you made your yoke exceedingly heavy.

Isa. 51:4  “Give attention to me, MY PEOPLE, and give ear to me, my nation; for a law will go out from me, and I will set my justice for a light to the peoples.

Isa. 51:16  And I have put my words in your mouth and covered you in the shadow of my hand, establishing the heavens and laying the foundations of the earth, and saying to Zion, ‘You are MY PEOPLE.'”

Isa. 52:4  For thus says the Lord GOD: “MY PEOPLE went down at the first into Egypt to sojourn there, and the Assyrian oppressed them for nothing.

Isa. 52:5  Now therefore what have I here,” declares the LORD, “seeing that MY PEOPLE are taken away for nothing? Their rulers wail,” declares the LORD, “and continually all the day my name is despised.

Isa. 52:6  Therefore MY PEOPLE shall know my name. Therefore in that day they shall know that it is I who speak; here I am.”

Isa. 53:8  By oppression and judgment he was taken away; and as for his generation, who considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living, stricken for the transgression of MY PEOPLE?

Isa. 57:14  And it shall be said, “Build up, build up, prepare the way, remove every obstruction from MY PEOPLE’s way.”

Isa. 58:1  “Cry aloud; do not hold back; lift up your voice like a trumpet; declare to MY PEOPLE their transgression, to the house of Jacob their sins.

Isa. 63:8  For he said, “Surely they are MY PEOPLE, children who will not deal falsely.” And he became their Savior.

Isa. 65:10  Sharon shall become a pasture for flocks, and the Valley of Achor a place for herds to lie down, for MY PEOPLE who have sought me.

Isa. 65:19  I will rejoice in Jerusalem and be glad in MY PEOPLE; no more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping and the cry of distress.

Isa. 65:22  They shall not build and another inhabit; they shall not plant and another eat; for like the days of a tree shall the days of MY PEOPLE be, and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands.

Jer. 2:11  Has a nation changed its gods, even though they are no gods? But MY PEOPLE have changed their glory for that which does not profit.

Jer. 2:13  for MY PEOPLE have committed two evils: they have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and hewed out cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns that can hold no water.

Jer. 2:31  And you, O generation, behold the word of the LORD. Have I been a wilderness to Israel, or a land of thick darkness? Why then do MY PEOPLE say, ‘We are free, we will come no more to you’?

Jer. 2:32  Can a virgin forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? Yet MY PEOPLE have forgotten me days without number.
