Bereshit/Genesis 43:8-9 “And Judah said to Israel, his father, Send the lad with me and we will arise and go; that we may live, and not die, both we, and thou , and also our little ones. 9. I will be surety for him; of my hand shall thou require him: if I bring him not to thee, and set him before thee, then let me bear the blame for ever.” Judah made a promise to YHWH, that in the two Torah, (Eikev and Reeh), Haftorah- Isaiah portions and in the Brit Chadesh , much is revealed, can be seen, much is unseen and unknown , covered. We are given instruction on what to do. Ones and ones, near and far who have been called, chosen and accepted, seek to hear YHWH’s voice, and do YHWH’s will.
In Eikev, there is a reward when one listens to the ordinances and observe and perform them. There is an assurance in not fearing the nations because YHWH says we are to remember what YHWH, INI Almighty did to Pharaoh and to all Mitzraim. There is a lesson of affliction and food, when we were tested, afflicted, hungry and then fed manna by YHWH that we may know that man does not live by bread alone, rather by everything that comes from the mouth of YHWH doe man live. We are warned against the lure of prosperity lest INI heart would become haughty and INI would forget YHWH, INI Almighty Who took INI out of the land of Mitzraim from the house of slavery. It was Yahoshua Ben YHWH, The Father, Son and Kadosh Ruach of Judah, who took me out of the land of Mitzraim. It is Yahoshua Ben YHWH, The Father, Son, and Kadosh Ruach of Judah who has chastised and shown me great and awesome things. The Exodus has been with tribulation in the wilderness, there was the receiving of the Tablets of stone, the Tablets of the Covenant that YHWH sealed with INI, when Moses went up the mountain.
When afflicted and hungry seek not, and pray against being stiff-necked and repeatedly rebellious. Seek to hear, Shema O Israel, YHWH IS ONE. There was a temporary Ark, of cedarwood and second Tablet that was made. The Children of Israel journeyed, Aaron died, the Levites were elevated, YHWH reconciled with Israel (Devarim/Deuteronomy 10: 12-15). We have original, first hand knowledge of YHWH’s wonders. Observing the commandments, to be strong, to come to, cross and possess the land flowing with milk and honey, with prolonged days sworn to INI fathers and to INI children. YHWH has promised rain for INI land in due season. Love and Cleave to YHWH, Cleave to HIM when you are afflicted and hungry. See he will present a blessing and a curse (Torah portion, Parashat Re’eh). The land is to be sanctified. We are commanded to sanctify the land. Devarim/Deuteronomy 12:1-3. We were given permission to eat redeemed offerings, sacred foods what INI raise up with INI hands. YHWH’s will INI come to the place where INI raise up INI sacred food with INI hands. We are strictly forbidden to copy the rites and rituals of the Canaanites. We are warned against false prophets and ones who entice others to go astray. A wayward city, where lawless men emerge that caused the dwellers of their city to go astray, saying “Let us go and worship the powers of others’. INI shall seek out and investigate and inquire well and see, it is true, the word, is correct and abomination was committed, then the inhabitants of that city shall be smitten with the edge of the sword. (Deuteronomy 13: 13-19).
Israel is a kadosh, treasured, chosen people for YHWH. YHWH has shown us clean and unclean food that we may eat In Deuteronomy 14:3-21. We are to tithe, after seven years every creditor shall remit his authority over what he has lent his fellow, be warm hearted and openhanded to INI sistren and brethren. (Devarim/Deuteronomy 15:1-11). There is a special relation that Hebrews men and women who are sold to serve have one with another. (Devarim/Deuteronomy 15:12-23). We are commanded to observe three pilgrimage festivals, Pesauch-Fasika, Shavuot, and Sukkot.
In Judgment, in YHWH’s name, The Messiah, Yahoshua Ben YHWH, The Father, Son and Kadosh Ruach of Judah, will gather together the exiled Ten Tribes who had inhabited mostly northeast of Israel. Isaiah 41:25-29.YHWH’s word prophecies the end of the exile, and that YHWH’s people would be comforted. YHWH’s prophets are to Speak consolingly of Jerusalem and proclaim that period of exile has been completed, and that her iniquity has been forgiven because she has received double for her sins from the hand of YHWH. Isaiah 40:1-11. “Behold, YHWH, Elohim, will come with a strong arm, and His arm will dominate for HIM, behold, His reward is with HIM.” Isaiah 40:10. Judah fulfils the promise he made to his father, Israel, to YHWH.
