Parsha Sh’mot – Names -
Yrmeyahu 1:1-2:3, Yesha’yahu 27:6-28:13, 29:22-23
Daniel ben Ya'acov Israel
We have now left behind the first part of the Torah, the book of the Beginning (B’reshit). It is with "B'reshit" (the Beginning) that all started. We need to know the transition between the book of B’reshit and the book of Sh’mot (Exodus) in order to understand and be able to see the “sod” (mystery, deep meaning) revealed in our days. Once again we are going to dig in the book of Yasher who will help us to understand.
The book of Sh’mot heralds the birth of Moshe who will be יהוה’s hand to deliver the children of Israel from the bondage of Mitsrayim (Egypt). .......
Children of Israel = all the twelve children of Ya’acov and their descendants more numerous as the sand of the sea...............
Gen 32:9 And Yaʽaqoḇ said, “O Elohim of my father Aḇraham and Elohim of my father Yitsḥaq, יהוה who said to me, ‘Return to your land and to your relatives, and I do good to you,’ Gen 32:10 “I do not deserve the least of all the kind acts and all the truth which You have shown Your servant, for I passed over this Yardĕn with my staff, and now I have become two groups.
Gen 32:11 “Deliver me, I pray, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Ěsaw, for I fear him, lest he come and shall smite me and the mother with the children. Gen 32:12 “For You said, ‘I shall certainly do good to you, and shall make your seed as the sand of the sea, which are too numerous to count.’ ”
This promise was made to Ya’acov as a confirmation of the promise done to Abraham by יהוה.....Gen 22:17 that I shall certainly bless you (Abraham), and I shall certainly increase your seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand which is on the seashore, and let your seed possess the gate of their enemies.
יהוה Elohim fulfil always his promises even when it take time like here centuries. Everything comes “in His time”! The book of "B'reshit" gave us the account of creation, not only the account of creation but also the overall plan of salvation and time frame for mankind to bring this plan to fruition in its different steps. Too often have Christians and others scholars neglected to dig behind the letter in order to see what יהוה has prepared before the creation in order that his Name will be glorify and all men be made liars before him who do not believe in his Word. What does the scriptures says about science?
1Ti 6:20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:
1Ti 6:21 which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Favour be with thee. . .Sha'ul (Paul) tells clearly Timothy to keep himself from so called science because he knew that the truth is the Torah.
The science as spoken by Sh'aul is not as we understand the word today, here the explanation from ISBE:
world, directly and immediately, without the intervention of any secondary laws. “Science” in the modern sense of the word, as the discovery and orderly classification and exposition of the phenomena and of the laws of Nature, is not found either in the Old Testament or the New Testament unless the passage in Daniel be interpreted as meaning the scientific knowledge which the learned men of Babylon possessed of mathematics and astronomy, etc. See also Act_7:22. To the Hebrew mind all natural phenomena meant the working of the hand of God in the world, directly and immediately, without the intervention of any secondary laws.
“Science” is the translation of the Greek "gnōsis", which in the New Testament is usually rendered “knowledge.” The science here referred to was a higher knowledge of doctrine and divine things, which false teachers alleged that they possessed, and of which they boasted. It was an incipient form of Gnosticism, and it prevailed to a considerable extent in the assemblies of proconsular Asia, e.g. in Colosse and
Timothy is put on his guard against the teaching of this "gnosis" falsely so called, for
it set itself in opposition to the gospel. Ephesus
Science: Srong's # G1108 γνῶσις gnōsis gno'-sis................From G1097; knowing (the act), that is, (by implication) knowledge: - knowledge, science. G1097; ginōskō ghin-oce'-ko
A prolonged form of a primary verb; to “know” (absolutely), in a great variety of applications and with many implications (as shown at left, with others not thus clearly expressed): - allow, be aware (of), feel, (have) known (-ledge), perceive, be resolved, can speak, be sure, understand
Are not today all these false Pastors, teachers, and prophets from Christianity claiming to have receive "higher knowledge" (Gnosis), boasting about revelation, and rejecting the Torah? It is amazing that TV programs show so much concerning the so call "scientist researches", having all the same purpose: To try to explain in a rational way that what the Bible tells is due to man tradition, myths, and belief brought by the traditions of the elders having nothing to do with reality. Is it not the work of the Anti-Messiah trying to remove the truth of the scriptures by their alleged presumptions? It doesn't matter how the Torah came to us, because יהוה knows how to bring his "dabar" (Word) to us. He knew what will be and how the enemy (HaSatan) would try to bring confusion among יהוה's people. Today we have the fulfilment of יהושע's words:
Luk 18:8………………….Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
Mat 7:13 enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Mat 7:14 because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
In these two verses יהושע speaks words of perplexity "shall he find faith on the earth" and "few there be that find the way"! ......Today many profess to believe "G-d" in a certain way, especially among all Christian denominations; the same is to be found among the Muslim and even in Judaism. The common point between these three forms of belief is the belief in one G-d but by their works, deny his power. I don't mention all the religions having many g-ds which of course are idolatry. Today we find ourselves in the same cycle as it was under Moshe as we are going to see in this parsha (portion). The world today reflects the same situation as it was under Moshe. We need to dig in order to see. I will help you see something which not so many have seen. At the time Pharaoh increase pressure on the Children of Israel it was after the last son of Ya'acov die. The Book of Yasher brings testimony of the account. Today the modern "Pharaoh" of the world is called "The Anti-Messiah" or "opposite to Messiah" and reigns over the all world. Today's recipe is "more work for more money" (President Nicolas Sarkosy, France). People are suffering loaded under more and more taxes making their own "bricks" without "straw" while those from the Governments are living in opulence and spend money with the leaders of this world, no matter if they are communist, socialist, or from the right wings, they all have the same G-d "Mammon"!
Today all Apostles have followed our Adon (Master) יהושע waiting for the appointed time to come back with him to establish יהוה's Kingdom. In the collective mind, many errors have been constrain by HaSatan using a powerful tool "false theology", but thanks be to our Elohim יהוה Zebaoth who according to his own purpose open the understanding of some of his children through Messiah יהושע in order to bring those from Ya'acov Household to the right path. Repetition is obligatory in cycle:
Luk 24:44 and he (יהושע) said unto them, these are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the Torah of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Luk 24:45 then (after having spoken these words) opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
There was a need for יהושע to open the understanding of the talmidin (disciples). Today we also need to get our understanding to get open in order to leave the doctrines of men and learn in the Torah what יהוה want us to know. I have heard from fellow brothers who keep the Shabbat and the Feast, saying that we don't have need any more to learn Torah! What a pity it is when we see how the all world is walking after the Anti-Messiah looking for Hedonism (to satisfy the desire of the flesh) and for humanitarianism. Humanitarianism: The doctrine that man's obligations are limited to, and dependent alone upon, man and the human relations. Also the distinctive tenet (doctrine, dogma) of the humanitarians in denying the divinity of Messiah; also, the whole system of doctrine based upon this view of Messiah....If you give ear, you will hear many times in TV people speaking of Humanity, "what to do for the all humanity", "how to get food for humanity", "how to save Humanity from plagues" and the list is long. Behind these words we see tremendous increase of poverty, lack of food, explosion of price for daily food………….
If we can understand the Torah, we will get our eyes open and see what marvellous work יהוה is doing in our days. What does the Word says?
Hab 2:4 behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith. Sha'ul (Paul) explains what is faith:
Heb 11:1 now faith is the substance (confidence) of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Substance: Strong's# G5287 ὑπόστασις hupostasis hoop-os'-tas-is From a compound of G5259 and G2476; a setting under (support), that is, (figuratively) concretely essence, or abstractly assurance (objectively or subjectively): - confidence, confident, person, substance............
Evidence: Strong's # G1650 ἔλεγχος elegchos el'-eng-khos From G1651; proof, conviction: - evidence, reproof.
Where these assurance and proof are; is it not in יהושע's resurrection which יהוה displayed in the face of the all world?We will see in this first parsha Sh'mot (Exodus) what happened to our forefathers and how it is in its substance fully connected to our today' situation. To be able to see this fact, we need to ask the right questions and see and understand יהושע' work.
1. What did יהושע?
2. At what time did יהושע came?
3. What was the first purpose of his work?
4. Was he not the prophet announced by Yehowah?
5. What was the deliverance brought by יהושע at his first advent?
6. What will be the deliverance at his second advent?
If we can answer these few questions, we will get a better understanding and no fall into the trap of man's doctrine.
Many years I followed man's doctrines because of ignorance. After years of bondage, I gave myself to search the Word and to meditation with prayer, asking our heavenly Father for the right understanding. This is I am convinced the only way to get the right understanding. Please don't misunderstand me, I don't say that it is wrong to read from others brothers so as you may read from me right now, I am not so pretentious, in many of my text I have mentioned names of brothers who were good help to discover the truth before I could walk following the Ruach HaQodesh: This verse I know, many will say that I don't understand what Yochanan (John) was saying, but let us read:
1Jn 2:26 these things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.
1Jn 2:27 but the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. Yochanan says, "you need not that any man teaches you". At this time Yochanan was writing there were the "Gnostics" pretending to have the secret knowledge and enlightening
Adam Clarke a Christian scholar writes in his commentary: 1Jn 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received - That ointment, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, mentioned 1Jo_2:20 (note).
Ye need not that any man teach you - The Gnostics, who pretended to the highest illumination, could bring no proof that they were divinely taught, nor had they anything in their teaching worthy the acceptance of the meanest "Christian"; therefore they had no need of that, nor of any other teaching but that which the same anointing teacheth, the same Spirit from whom they had already received the light of the glory of God, in the face of "Jesus Christ". Whatever that taught, they needed; and whatever those taught whose teaching was according to this Spirit, they needed. St. John does not say that those who had once received the teaching of the Divine Spirit had no farther need of the ministry of the Gospel; no, but he says they had no need of such teaching as their false teachers proposed to them; nor of any other teaching that was different from that anointing, i.e. the teaching of the Spirit of God. No man, howsoever holy, wise, or pure, can ever be in such a state as to have no need of the Gospel ministry: they who think so give the highest proof that they have never yet learned of Messiah or his Spirit.
Question: Who are the false teachers today?
What does יהושע told his disciples?
Joh 16:13 howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he (she) will guide you into all truth: for he (she) shall not speak of himself (herself); but whatsoever he (she) shall hear, that shall he (she) speak: and he (she) will shew you things to come.
Guide: Strong's # G3594 ὁδηγέω hodēgeō hod-ayg-eh'-o From G3595; to show the way (literally or figuratively [teach]): - guide, lead......
If the Ruach HaQodesh (Set Apart Spirit) dwells in you he will guide, teach and lead you into all truth.
If we can answer the six questions above, we will be able to see the reason יהוה want us to study the Torah. Just spend time and discuss these questions and put the answer on a paper, don't rush but try to get your mind on these points. You will be amazed that there is nothing new under the sun (Eccl 1:9) and that all runs according to what Elohim foretold in the Book of B'reshit.With that in mind let us go back to our today's parsha and learn what the life's condition of Ya'acov's descendants at this time was. Stop to read the Torah as a simple Book or even as just Elohim inspired book, but much more as the mirror of our own life given unto us by appointed messengers chosen by Elohim. The Mitsraytes (Egyptians) have been blessed and protected from their enemies during Yoseph’s life and up to the time the last son of Ya’acov died as we will see. I want us to see that history repeat itself and that one of the worse attribute of man is to “forget” easily. The parsha start giving the name of Ya’acov’s children who came to Mitsrayim (
), “seventy beings” (verse
5).Verses 6 to 10 tell us that Yospeh
died and that the Mitsrayites plan to
put the children of Egypt
under bondage. Details are given in the book
of Yasher and we will see that while Ya’acov'
sons were living, the inhabitants of Mitsrayim
were blessed by יהוה. Israel
You remember that the last chapter of the book of B’reshit speaks of the book of Yoseph. He was not the last to die in Mistrayim (
was the last of Ya'acov' sons to die. Egypt
Yahser Chapter 63:1. and in the ninety-third year died Levi, the son of Jacob, in
Levi was a hundred and thirty-seven
years old when he died, and they put him into a coffin and he was given into
the hands of his children. 2. and it
came to pass after the death of Levi, when all
saw that the sons of Jacob the brethren of Joseph were dead, all the
Egyptians began to afflict the children of Jacob, and to embitter their lives
from that day unto the day of their going forth from Egypt, and they took from their hands all the
vineyards and fields which Joseph
given unto them, and all the elegant houses in which the people of
and all the fat of Egypt,
the Egyptians took all from the sons of Jacob in those days. 3. and the hand of all Israel became
more grievous in those days against the children of Israel, and the Egyptians
injured the Israelites until the children of Egypt were wearied of their lives
on account of the Egyptians. ............. Israel
Verse 3 understands the 93 years are the years counted from the time when Ya’acov came to Mitsrayim after he heard that his son Yospeh was alive. Levi died when he was 137 years old. The Mitsrayites were coward people they knew of the fame of Ya’acov sons and didn’t dare to do anything while they were alive. Levi was born while his father Ya'acov was with his uncle Laban.................
Spiritual interpretation: The children of
(Ya’acov): twelve in number. Physical situation Israel
The Apostle: twelve in number. Spiritual application .While the children of Ya’acov were alive none of the Mitsrayites (Egyptians) dared to do anything against them. While the Apostles were alive none of the “Christians” (Roman Catholic Church) dared to change the doctrine of Messiah. Remember that Mitsrayim /
is a microcosm of the world
8 we read that there was a sovereign (King) who didn’t know Yospeh.
Let us look at the meaning of the word “know”:
Know:Strong’s # H3045 Yada ידע written yod, dalet, ayin;
I will quote Brown, Driver, Briggs’ definitions:
1) to know .....1a) (Qal).....1a1) to know1a1a) to know, learn to know.....1a1b) to perceive
1a1c) to perceive and see, find out and discern .....1a1d) to discriminate, distinguish
1a1e) to know by experience .....1a1f) to recognise, admit, acknowledge, confess
1a1g) to consider ....1a2) to know, be acquainted with ....1a3) to know (a person carnally)
1a4) to know how, be skilful in....1a5) to have knowledge, be wise ....1b) (Niphal)
1b1) to be made known, be or become known, be revealed....1b2) to make oneself known
1b3) to be perceived....1b4) to be instructed....1c) (Piel) to cause to know....1d) (Poal) to cause to know
1e) (Pual)….1e1) to be known....1e2) known, one known, acquaintance (participle)
The sovereign of
didn’t find out and discern, or knew by
experience, recognise, admit, acknowledge,
confess and consider, was acquainted
with, had knowledge of Yoseph and
his brethren, nor was he interested to enquire. Tell me how it is today? Do you
think that the rulers of the world have find
out, or can discern or know by having experienced, or admit and acknowledge, confess and consider or are acquainted
with יהושע Messiah? The answer is the same as
for the King of Mitsrayim: NO! They don’t....The one they know is “Jesus” lawless and antinomian (against
the Torah).The one taught and supported by the Roman Catholic Church. Egypt
Antinomian: One who maintains that, under the gospel dispensation, the law (Torah) is of no use or obligation, but that faith alone is necessary to salvation. The sect of Antinomians originated with John Agricola, in
about the year 1535 (ISBE). Germany
Sh’lomo says that there is nothing new under heaven, what was, is that which will be. (Eccl. 1:9).
While the children of
(Apostles) were alive, people could receive blessing from heaven, through Yoseph / יהושע....Now Yoseph / יהושע are
gone, some to the grave, "sheol" (abode of the death) waiting for the
resurrection, the others, to be with our Master who seat at the right hand of
the Father until the time of restoration of all things come: Israel
Act 3:20 and that He sends יהושע Messiah, pre-appointed for you, Act 3:21 whom heaven needs to receive until the times of restoration of all matters, of which Elohim spoke through the mouth of all His set-apart prophets since of old.
The time of Moshe and the children of
in Mitsrayim / was a
shadow of our life today. We my brothers and sisters are living in Mitsrayim the land of oppression and we
cry unto יהוה for our deliverance through יהושע Messiah. Egypt
Yasher chapter 63: 4. and it came to pass in those days, in the hundred and second year of
's going down
to Egypt, that Pharaoh king of Israel died,
and Melol his son reigned in his stead, and all the mighty men of Egypt and all that generation which knew Joseph
and his brethren died in
those days. 5. and another
generation rose up in their stead, which had not known the sons of Jacob and
all the good which they had done to them, and all their might in Egypt . 6.
Therefore all Egypt
began from that day forth to
embitter the lives of the sons of Jacob, and to afflict them with all manner of
hard labour, because they had not
known their ancestors who had delivered them in the days of the famine.
The prophet Amos writes concerning Famine:
Amo 8:11 Behold, the days come (not now but in the future), saith יהוה Elohim, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of יהוה.
The last famine coming upon the world is a famine of “hearing the words of יהוה”. If you check around you, you will see that people pretend, have a form of godliness but denied the power (2nd Timot.3:5), following their own pernicious (malicious, insidious) ways. Last Tuesday, January 20th 2009 I watched the world wide retransmission of Barak Obama’ vow, on Abraham Lincoln’s bible, during his investiture as the 44th President of the
. The Parsah
tells us verse 8: “a new sovereign arose over Mitsrayim who did not know Yoseph
(יהושע). Indeed Barak Obama swore by “G-d” not by the
Name יהוה the Elohim of Israel but by “G-d” We all know that the “G-d” of this world is HaSatan. I saw a Gay Pastor been honoured by Mr.
Obama with an invitation to take part to his investiture sermon. I saw
another pastor Rick Warren, who leads
people into New Age thinking,
philosophy and manipulation asking before millions of people to “bless” Mr Obama in his way as United States of America president. Further I have seen in the French TV the week
before the investiture, Journalist speaking in TV show about the “saviour of the world” calling Barak Obama “messiah”. Today in 2010 many in the US are against Barak Obama having lie concerning his
birth in the US and reveal himself to be a muslim! US
But you brothers and sisters you are not in darkness that that day should overtake you as a thief (1St Tessal.5:4)
While they celebrate and extol themselves, the children of
all around the world are
suffering under the oppression. This is called tribulation: Israel
2Th 1:4 So that we ourselves glory in you in the assembly of Elohim for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: 2Th 1:5 Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of Elohim,that ye may be counted worthy of the
, for which ye also suffer: kingdom of Elohim
Tribulation: Strong's # G2347 thlipsis thlip'-sis From G2346; pressure (literally or figuratively): - afflicted, (-tion), anguish, burdened, persecution, tribulation, trouble. G2346: thlibō thlee'-bo
Akin to the base of G5147; to crowd (literally or figuratively): - afflict, narrow, throng, suffer tribulation, trouble. ......
Can you see any difference with our forefathers in Mitsrayim? There is none, as it was, so it is today. But יהוה has delivered our forefathers and he will do it again for those who wait for him, when he will sent our Master יהושע Messiah very soon (read the midrash on the “sh’mita cycle"). Once we have read the P’shat literal level we look into the “remez” to see the hint to יהושע Messiah/ I know there are many who will tell you that we have only to look to the text as it is written in the literal sense! That’s not what the scriptures say (read Psalm 25:14, the secret (sod) of יהוה is with them that fear him, and He will shew them His covenant ...
Secret: Strong’s# H5475 סוד sôd sode written samech,vav,dalet, From H3245; a session, that is, company of persons (in close deliberation); by implication intimacy, consultation, a secret: - assembly, counsel, inward, secret (counsel). Let see if it differs from יהושע’s teaching:
Mark 4:11 and He said to them, “To you it has been given to know the secret of the reign of Elohim, but to those who are outside, all are done in parables,
Secret: Strong’s # G3466 mustērion Thayer Definition: 1) Hidden thing, secret, mystery 1a) generally mysteries, religious secrets, confided only to the initiated and not to ordinary mortals 1b) a hidden or secret thing, not obvious to the understanding 1c) a hidden purpose or counsel
1c1) secret will
1c1a) of men
1c1b) of God: the secret counsels which govern God in dealing with the righteous, which are hidden from ungodly and wicked men but plain to the godly
2) In rabbinic writings, it denotes the mystic or hidden sense
We see that the meaning doesn’t change. The “sod”, “musterion” is the secret hidden by Elohim for those who love Him. Revelation comes by studying Torah and prayer, living a life according to His will (Qadosh life) through Messiah יהושע. The difference between our forefathers before יהושע came and those living after יהושע came (since the time of the apostles, you and me) is explained by Sha'ul /Paul to the brethren in
in 1 Corint. 15:
1Co 15:45 and so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam (יהושע) was made a quickening spirit. 1Co 15:46 howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. 1Co 15:47 the first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is יהושע from heaven. 1Co 15:48 as is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. .....Remember in the original text there is no repetition of the verses numbers, sometime it is a long sentence. If the verses numbers are a good tool to remember the place, sometime it is also a problem, because looking as it is a new sentence which was not intended by the writer.
So could have been written from Sha'ul in the original: ……..and so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam (יהושע) was made a quickening spirit, howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual, the first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is יהושע from heaven, as is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly....... Can you see how the sentence change and become more coherent in its meaning? This happen throughout the scriptures been accentuated by adding capital letters where it is not required thus influencing the reader in his subconscient to think that it is a new sentence although been one with the former sentence! In the old Hebrew there was no capital letter used. If you try to remember this point during your reading you will see changes in your understanding. The first man (Adam) and his followers represent the natural man, the carnal man, those who live in the flesh entangle with passion and worldly lust.(1st Yochan;2:15-16). The second man (Adam) verse 47 is the one who follow יהושע in all his way. With this in mind, we can better understand, what happen in Moshe's life time. People were carnal unable to see what Moshe saw because he was devoted to do יהוה’s will as were Aaron and many others after them (Yehoshua son of Nun, Caleb, David, Nathan, Sh’mu’el, and all the prophets). We brothers we have been chosen in Him, יהושע Messiah the last Adam before the creation of the world to do his will. (Eph 1:4, 1st Kefa 1:2) and to walk in יהושע's steps!
It is amazing to see today a similar situation as it was in Moshe’s day. The book of Sh’mot is what יהוה want us to know concerning our personal “deliverance from bondage” through יהושע as it was for the Children of Israel under Moshe. 1:7 "and the children of Israel", Ya’acov descendants as you and me are by birth or and by covenant, were 1) fruitful, 2) increased, 3) multiplied, 4) waxed exceedingly mighty. The land was filled with them. How the world is today, is it not filled with the descendants of Ya’acov, Itzahk and Abraham? A multitude of people and only a remnant will be saved
Isa 1:9 Unless יהוה of hosts had left to us a small remnant, we would have become like Seḏom (
Sodom), we would have
been made like Amorah ( ).
Isa 11:11 and it shall be in that day that יהוה sets His hand again a second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left, from Ashshur and from Mitsrayim, from Pathros and from Kush, from Ěylam and from Shinʽar, from Ḥamath and from the islands of the sea.
Isa 46:3 “Listen to Me, O house of Yaʽaqoḇ, and all the remnant of the house of Yisra’ĕl, who are borne from the belly, who are carried from the womb:
Jer 23:3 “Therefore I shall gather the remnant of My flock out of all the lands where I have driven them, and shall bring them back to their fold. And they shall bear and increase. Eze 6:8 “But I shall leave a remnant, in that some of you shall escape the sword among the gentiles (Goy, nations), when you are scattered throughout the lands.
Joe 2:32 and it shall come to pass, whosoever shall call on the name of יהוה shall be delivered: for in mount
shall be deliverance, as יהוה hath said, and in the
remnant whom יהוה shall call. Jerusalem
Rom 9:27 And Yeshayahu cries out on behalf of Yisra’ĕl, “Though the number of the children of Yisra’ĕl be as the sand of the sea, the remnant shall be saved.
Rom 11:5 So therefore also, at this present time a remnant according to the choice of favour has come to be.
Rev 11:13 and in that hour there came to be a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. and in the earthquake seven thousand men were killed, and the rest (remnant) became afraid and gave esteem to the Elohim of the heaven.
Rev 12:17 and the dragon (HaSatan) was enraged with the woman, and he went to fight with the remnant of her seed, those guarding the commands of Elohim and possessing the witness of יהושע Messiah.
Remnant: Strong’s #H8300 שׂריד śârîyd saw-reed 'written shin;resh,daleth
From H8277; a survivor: - X alive, left, remain (-ing), remnant, rest. H8277 śârad saw-rad'
A primitive root; properly to puncture (compare H8279), that is, (figuratively through the idea of slipping out) to escape or survive: - remain. Webster definition: REM'NANT, n. [contracted from remanent. See Remain.] 1. Residue; that which is left after the separation, removal or destruction of a part.
The remnant that are left of the captivity.
Neh 1. 2. That which remains after a part is done, performed, told or passed.
Are we among these remnants, those who keep the truth through and in Messiah יהושע? The word exhorts us again and again to keep the truth for this is salvation unto those who believe.
Moshe gave the living word to the children of Israel, and they were seeking the natural food; יהושע give us the living food which is the “Torah”. To follow יהושע is to “eat the word of life” (Yochanan 6:53-56)
The world today, a form of Mitsrayim (
is full of paganism, idolatry and is filled with the descendants of . Some “Christians preachers” boast themselves
that they are the “greatest religion in the world”, which of course do not
conform with the remnant. It is not the quantity but the quality of the remnant which count to יהוה. Are you among these remnants, who have
left everything behind to follow יהושע Messiah? Read what the prophet Yeshayahu (Isaiah) wrote under the Ruach HaQodesh (Set apart Spirit): Israel
Isa 11:11 and it shall be in that day that יהוה sets His hand again a second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left, from Ashshur and from Mitsrayim, from Pathros and from Kush, from Ěylam and from Shinʽar, from Ḥamath and from the islands of the sea. ……a second time………………………….and from the islands of the sea.
In other words he was saying: "after I (Elohim) having made it with Moshe, I will do it again by the hand of יהושע and will recover the remnant of my people form Ashhur…………………………and from the place of numerous people.
The "Sea" been a metaphor for numerous people, "Island" for far places and not always only
Island as we understand it
Exo 1:1 and these are the names of the children of Yisra’ĕl who came to Mitsrayim with Yaʽaqoḇ, each one with his household: Exo 1:2 Re’uḇĕn, Shimʽon, Lĕwi, and Yehuḏah;
Exo 1:3 Yissasḵar, Zeḇulun, and Binyamin; Exo 1:4 Dan and Naphtali, Gaḏ and Ashĕr. Exo 1:5 and all those who were descendants of Yaʽaqoḇ were seventy beings, as Yosĕph was already in Mitsrayim. Exo 1:6 and Yosĕph died, and all his brothers, and all that generation. Exo 1:7 and the children of Yisra’ĕl bore fruit and increased very much, multiplied and became very strong, and the land was filled with them. Exo 1:8 Then a new sovereign arose over Mitsrayim, who did not know Yosĕph, Exo 1:9 and he said to his people, “See, the people of the children of Yisra’ĕl are more and stronger than we, Exo 1:10 come, let us act wisely towards them, lest they increase, and it shall be when fighting befalls us, that they shall join our enemies and fight against us, and shall go up out of the land.” .........
10. A new
king who do not know Yoseph! This is
a very deep statement. This king unlike the
book of Yasher , Moshe doesn’t
give his name. Yasher tells that it
is the one after “Melol”son of
Pharaoh in Yoseph‘s time The Torah
doesn’t mention is name anywhere. Moshe want us to concentrate on the title not
on the name. A king a ruler like, one who doesn’t want to hear from Elohim like we have today: The UN or United Nation with and interesting Gemetria: The letter "U"
is the letter “vav” in Hebrew with
the Gemetria “ 6” and “N” is “nun” in Hebrew
with the gemetria 50 or 700 when it
is the final letter. So we have U.N. 6+700= 706 = 7+0+6= 13 = the number of rebellion, if we take 50 as final number we
have: 6+5+0 = 11 the number for
incomplete governance! Is that a coincidence? I let you the answer. U.N is a popular and well known
abbreviation for UNITED NATIONS so that we can take it as a full entity and
therefore look at the gemetria value
as acceptable. The UN decides matters in
the all world. We heard these last days, after Israel fought against the Hamas in Gaza to destroy their weapons that the UN through its head spoke of
bringing the guilt of “humanitarian
aggression” before the International Court of Justice the institution in La Haag Netherland who has been
established by the U.N. to rule the so call “crime
against humanity” Tell me who are the men with wealth today, who are the
afflicted, where does they affliction comes from?
Psa 34:19 many are the evils of the righteous1, but יהוה delivers him out of them all.
2Ti 3:11 the persecutions, the sufferings, which came to me at
, at Ikonion, and at Lustra – what persecutions I bore. Yet out of them all the Master delivered me.
3:12 and indeed, all those wishing to live reverently in
Messiah יהושע, shall be persecuted. Antioch
The King James Version says: “those who want to live a godly life in Messiah יהושע ……
So brothers and sisters do not be amazed when affliction and persecution come upon you, rather turn to our Father and to our Master יהושע who will deliver us from all the trap of our enemies.
The affliction from the king of Mitsrayim /
does not stop the children of
to multiply (verse12). The only way the Mitsrayites
/ Egyptians had against the children of Israel (carnal man) was to oppress
them with hard bondage (verse 14). It is amazing to read this when today, since
many years, the “elite group” of the
World calculates and plans how to eradicate people from the world through i.e.
wars, sickness, ethnic destruction, and other wicked plans like programmed
pandemics. I want to show the reason why did the children of Israel were
afflicted. This is not mentioned in the Torah. Remember what Sha'ul says that “all things work for
goof to those who love Elohim” (Rom. 8:28) Did Sha'ul read the book of Yasher? We look now in the book of Yasher (the Book of the Just) chapter 63: 6. Therefore all Egypt began from that day forth to embitter the
lives of the sons of Jacob, and to afflict them with all manner of hard
labour, because they had not known their
ancestors who had delivered them in the days of the famine. 7.
and this was also from YHWH, for the
children of Israel ,
to benefit them in their latter days, in order that all the children of Israel might know YHWH Eloheinu. Israel
8. and in order to know the signs and mighty wonders which YHWH would do in Egypt on account of his people
in order that the children of might
fear YHWH Elohim of their ancestors, and walk in all his ways, they and their seed after them all the days............ Israel
There is a lot we can see here. First it was יהוה’s plan, because the Mistrayites had not known the children of
ancestors, they were not acquainted with them and had forgotten what they did
by the hand of Yoseph to deliver them
from the famine. It was also from יהוה for
the children of Israel “you and me” in the later days (the days we are living
today) in order that we might know יהוה Elohim who sent Moshe the forerunner of יהושע to fear him and to trust
him. When Moshe came at the age of 40 and return at the age of 80, the children
(carnal man) had “forgotten” the way of יהוה, they were
not like Abraham, Itzahk, Ya’acov who were taught by Noach and his sons Shem and Eber. Today
people from the world are taught by the philosophy and knowledge of man, not by
the truth which is the Torah. The children of Israel are well present as a
multitude among the nations in the all world, but only a remnant will be saved.
This is fact and many will be deceived. Many think that our brethren from Yehudah will be deceived because they
reject “Jesus” or even יהושע we know that they also will embrace the
truth that is in יהושע at the
right time. We need to pray for our brethren, may יהוה pour on them the spirit of supplication as
it become worse in Israel . Jerusalem
Do you think so, or rather, that those who will be deceived are those who trust in the false Messiah “Jesus” the law breaker and Torah-less Messiah. Just try to talk to these people and you will see how they vehemently reject the truth, following the spirit of deception, boasting to be “free from the law”, “save only by grace”, that the law “has been fulfilled by "Jesus”, accusing you of legalism and bondage, trying to do your own righteousness. We see that the book of Yasher says that this happened in order to profit us (the children of
) in the
later days (verse 7). If we make a research concerning the later days, we will
see that there is no mistake about the time of the later days. Israel
Gen 49:1 and Yaʽaqoḇ called his sons and said, “Gather together, so that I declare to you what is to befall you in the last days:
Isa 2:2 and it shall be in the latter days that the mountain of the House of יהוה is established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills. And all nations shall flow to it.
Act 2:16 “But this is what was spoken by the prophet Yo’ĕl:
Act 2:17 ‘and it shall be in the last days, says Elohim, that I shall pour out of My Spirit on all flesh. And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams,
2Ti 3:1 but know this, that in the last days hard times shall come.
2Pe 3:3 knowing this first: that mockers shall come in the last days with mocking, walking according to their own lusts,
Heb 1:2 has in these last days spoken to us by the Son, whom He has appointed heir of all, through* whom also He made the ages,
1Jn 2:18 Little children, it is the last hour. And as you have heard that the anti-messiah is coming, even now many anti-messiahs have come. This is how we know that it is the last hour.
*Through (also by): Strong's # G1223διά dia dee-ah'.........A primary preposition denoting the channel of an act; through (in very wide applications, local, causal or occasional). In composition it retains the same general import: - after, always, among, at, to avoid, because of (that), briefly, by, for (cause) . . . fore, from, in, by occasion of, of, by reason of, for sake, that, thereby, therefore, X though, through (-out), to, wherefore, with (-in). In composition it retains the same general import. So we could read the verse so:
Heb 1:2 has in these last days spoken to us by the Son (יהושע), whom He has appointed heir of all, "dia", because of, by reason of, for the sake of* whom also He made the ages,
This brings a tremendous change far from Christian doctrine of Trinity and the "G-d Jesus". Yochanan goes so far to call it “the last hour”......The last days started with the coming of יהושע Messiah, as we know that one day equal one thousand year, so the two last days equal the last two thousand years before the Second Advent. The book of Yasher says that it is for us that יהוה did what he did under Moshe’s time. We should think about that!
Exo 1:11 So they set slave-masters over them to afflict them with their burdens, and they built for Pharaoh supply cities, Pithom and Raʽamses. ...............
Names meaning according to Brown Driver and Briggs:
Pithom: Strong’s # “City of justice” one of the store-cities which the Pharaoh made the Israelites build
Ra’amses: Strong’s #H7486 Raamses or Rameses = “child of the sun”1) a city in lower Egypt built by Hebrew slaves; probably in Goshen.......“Child of the Sun”!
As we know the sun is part of the Mitsrayite religion as it is with the Roman Catholic Church with their “Sun – day worship”, and Easter (Ishtar) celebration and “Christ – mas” the “mass” for “Christ” to celebrate the rebirth of the sun after the winter solcist. Whose name is the name of the “Sun child” in
/Mitsrayim, is it not “Horus” The son of Isis and Osiris? Horus
the “all seeing eye”! The eye can be
seen in the One US Dollar bill today on the top of the Pyramid, all symbol of
the Lucifer worship of the “Illuminati”..........The
children of Egypt
were forced to work for the mitsrayites
to build this two cities, the “City of
justice”, Pithom, and the city of
“The child of the sun” Ra’amses. Today
we have two cities who match with Pithom and
Pithom is equal to
New York (City
of ) the
seat of the U.N the organisation who rules the World affairs..... Justice
Raamses is equal to
where the the city of the Mother
of Harlots seats (Child of the Sun)........... Vatican
Exo 1:12 but the more they afflicted them, the more they increased and grew, and they were in dread of the children of Yisra’ĕl. Exo 1:13 and the Mitsrites made the children of Yisra’ĕl serve with harshness, Exo 1:14 and they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in mortar, and in brick, and in all kinds of work in the field, all their work which they made them do was with harshness. Exo 1:15 Then the sovereign of Mitsrayim spoke to the Heḇrew midwives, of whom the name of one was Shiphrah and the name of the other Puʽah, Exo 1:16 and he said, “When you deliver the Heḇrew women, and see them on the birthstools, if it is a son, then you shall put him to death, but if it is a daughter, then she shall live.”
Exo 1:17 But the midwives feared Elohim, and did not do as the sovereign of Mitsrayim commanded them, and kept the male children alive.
Exo 1:18 so the sovereign of Mitsrayim called for the midwives and said to them, “Why have you done this, and kept the male children alive?” Exo 1:19 and the midwives said to Pharaoh, “Because the Heḇrew women are not like the Mitsrite women. For they are lively and give birth before the midwives come to them.” Exo 1:20 so Elohim was good to the midwives, and the people increased and became very numerous. Exo 1:21 and it came to be, because the midwives feared Elohim, that He provided households for them. Exo 1:22 and Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, “Throw every son who is born into the river, and keep alive every daughter.”
.For the account of the midwives we are going to read the account from Josephus an historian “Jews” who lived at יהושע’s time and wrote: ............
From “Antiquities of the Jews" Book 2 Chapter 9:NOW it happened that the Egyptians grew delicate and lazy, as to pains-taking, and gave themselves up to other pleasures (hedonism), and in particular to the love of gain. They also became very ill-affected towards the Hebrews, as touched with envy at their prosperity; for when they saw how the nation of the Israelites flourished, and were become eminent already in plenty of wealth, which they had acquired by their virtue and natural love of labour, they thought their increase was to their own detriment. And having, in length of time, forgotten the benefits they had received from Joseph, particularly the crown being now come into another family, they became very abusive to the Israelites, and contrived many ways of afflicting them; for they enjoined them to cut a great number of channels for the river, and to build walls for their cities and ramparts, that they might restrain the river, and hinder its waters from stagnating, upon its running over its own banks: they set them also to build pyramids, (17) and by all this wore them out; and forced them to learn all sorts of mechanical arts, and to accustom themselves to hard labour. And four hundred years did they spend under these afflictions*; for they strove one against the other which should get the mastery, the Egyptians desiring to destroy the Israelites by these labours, and the Israelites desiring to hold out to the end under them.
*This time period is from the time Abraham entered the land of Canaan until the deliverance through Moshe.
Josephus “Antiquities of the Jews” Book 2 chapter 15:” 2. They left Egypt in the month Xanthicus, on the fifteenth day of the lunar month; four hundred and thirty years after our forefather Abraham came into Canaan, but two hundred and fifteen years only after Jacob removed into Egypt. (28) It was the eightieth year of the age of Moses, and of that of Aaron three more. They also carried out the bones of Joseph with them, as he had charged his sons to do.and inconsolable to them. And this was the ill state they were in. But no one can be too hard for the purpose of God, though he contrive ten thousand subtle devices for that end; for this child, whom the sacred scribe foretold, was brought up and concealed from the observers appointed by the king; and he that foretold him did not mistake in the consequences of his preservation, which were brought to pass after the manner foll2. While the affairs of the Hebrews were in this condition, there was this occasion offered itself to the Egyptians, which made them more solicitous for the extinction of our nation. One of those sacred scribes, (18) who are very sagacious in foretelling future events truly, told the king, that about this time there would a child be born to the Israelites, who, if he were reared, would bring the Egyptian dominion low, and would raise the Israelites; that he would excel all men in virtue, and obtain a glory that would be remembered through all ages. Which thing was so feared by the king, that, according to this man's opinion, he commanded that they should cast every male child, which was born to the Israelites, into the river, and destroy it; that besides this, the Egyptian midwives (19) should watch the labours of the Hebrew women, and observe what is born, for those were the women who were enjoined to do the office of midwives to them; and by reason of their relation to the king, would not transgress his commands. He enjoined also, that if any parents should disobey him, and venture to save their male children alive, (20) they and their families should be destroyed. This was a severe affliction indeed to those that suffered it, not only as they were deprived of their sons, and while they were the parents themselves, they were obliged to be subservient to the destruction of their own children, but as it was to be supposed to tend to the extirpation of their nation, while upon the destruction of their children, and their own gradual dissolution, the calamity would become very hard owing: - ..............
Chapter 2 Moshe’s birth.
Before we go further I want to show something. During the time the children of Israel were afflicted by the Mitsaryites / Egyptians, one tribe was not, but let us read and understand:
Yasher Chp. 65.: 31. and the children of Israel built Pithom and Rameses, and all the children of Israel did the work, some making bricks, and some building, and the children of Israel built and fortified all the land of Egypt and its walls, and the children of Israel were engaged in work for many years, until the time came when YHWH remembered them and brought them out of Egypt. 32. but the children of Levi were not employed in the work with their brethren of Israel, from the beginning unto the day of their going forth from Egypt.
33. for all the children of Levi knew that the Egyptians had spoken all these words with deceit to the Israelites, therefore the children of Levi refrained from approaching to the work with their brethren. 34. and the Egyptians did not direct their attention to make the children of Levi work afterward, since they had not been with their brethren at the beginning, therefore the Egyptians left them alone. ..........
Verses 32 and 33 we read that the children of Levi were not called to work and the reason was that they knew what, was the plan of the Israelites, to deceive the children of Israel. Later the children of Levi will be chosen to be priest under Moshe to serve at the tabernacle. I would like you to see who we (you and me) are today among the “children of Israel” scattered among the nations. Talk about your position today?
Are we a “chosen generation”, a “royal priesthood” a ”purchased people” as it is written by Kefa (Peter) (1st Kefa 2:9), or are we like the other children of Israel “deceive” by the cunning evil plan of Mitsrayites / Egyptians / people from the world?
1Pe 2:9 but ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 1Pe 2:10 which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of YHWH: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
Peculiar: Strong's # G4047 περιποίησις peripoiēsisper-ee-poy'-ay-sis.............From G4046; acquisition (the act or the thing); by extension preservation: - obtain (-ing), peculiar, purchased, possession, saving. .....
Now you can chose for yourselves if you are a “royal priesthood” Elohim acquisition, preservation, purchased possession or a slave in bondage of the world. If you are a royal priesthood, do not fear the modern Mitsrayites, they can’t do nothing against you stand firm, resist Satan and he will flee from you. Pharaoh is a picture of HaSatan, the enemy. The Former King of Egypt in Yoseph time was a picture of Elohim, now is successor has become a picture of Elohim's opponent HaSatan. Concerning the birth of Moshe, we all know that it was a divine appointment. First יהוה told Abram that his descendants would be 400 years in Egypt / Mitsrayim, but that he will remember them. We are going to look what Josephus and the book of Yasher tells us! Just be patient and read and you will see how sometime it is simple to understand and know more about our ancestors and our Elohim:
Jasher Chapter 67 (in brackets mine)1. There was a man in the land of Egypt of the seed of Levi, whose name was Amram, the son of Kehath, the son of Levi, the son of Israel (Ya’acov). 2. and this man went and took a wife, namely Jochebed the daughter of Levi his father's sister, and she was one hundred and twenty-six years old, and he came unto her. 3. and the woman conceived and bare a daughter, and she called her name Miriam(Moshe older sister), because in those days the Egyptians had embittered the lives of the children of Israel. 4. and she conceived again and bare a son and she called his name Aaron (three years older then Moshe), for in the days of her conception, Pharaoh began to spill the blood of the male children of Israel.
6. and the time that Zepho reigned over the children of Chittim was fifty years, and he died and was buried in the city of Nabna in the land of Chittim. 7. and Janeas, one of the mighty men of the children of Chittim, reigned after him and he reigned fifty years. 8. and it was after the death of the king of Chittim that Balaam the son of Beor fled from the land of Chittim, and he (Balaam) went and came to Egypt to Pharaoh king of Egypt.
(remember Balaam the wicked prophet he will come later to put a curse on Israel at Balak demand)
9. and Pharaoh received him with great honor, for he had heard of his wisdom, and he gave him presents and made him for a counsellor, and aggrandized him. 10. and Balaam dwelt in Egypt, in honor with all the nobles of the king, and the nobles exalted him, because they all coveted to learn his wisdom. 11. and in the hundred and thirtieth year of Israel's going down to Egypt, Pharaoh dreamed that he was sitting upon his kingly throne, and lifted up his eyes and saw an old man standing before him, and there were scales in the hands of the old man, such scales as are used by merchants. 12. and the old man took the scales and hung them before Pharaoh.
13. and the old man took all the elders of Egypt and all its nobles and great men, and he tied them together and put them in one scale. 14. and he took a milk kid and put it into the other scale, and the kid preponderated over all. 15. and Pharaoh was astonished at this dreadful vision, why the kid should preponderate over all, and Pharaoh awoke and behold it was a dream. 16. and Pharaoh rose up early in the morning and called all his servants and related to them the dream, and the men were greatly afraid. 17. and the king said to all his wise men, Interpret I pray you the dream which I dreamed, that I may know it. 18. and Balaam the son of Beor answered the king and said unto him, This means nothing else but a great evil that will spring up against Egypt in the latter days.(At the time יהוה will deliver His children by the hand of Moshe and later in our days by the hand of יהושע ) 19. for a son will be born to Israel who will destroy all Egypt and its inhabitants, and bring forth the Israelites from Egypt with a mighty hand. 20. Now therefore, O king, take counsel upon this matter that you may destroy the hope of the children of Israel and their expectation, before this evil arise against Egypt. 21. and the king said unto Balaam, And what shall we do unto Israel? Surely after a certain manner did we at first counsel against them and could not prevail over them. 22. Now therefore give you also advice against them by which we may prevail over them. 23. and Balaam answered the king, saying, Send now and call thy two counsellors, and we will see what their advice is upon this matter and afterward thy servant will speak.
24. and the king sent and called his two counsellors Reuel (That is Yethro) the Midianite and Job (the one from the ‘book of Job”) the Uzite, and they came and sat before the king. 25. and the king said to them, Behold you have both heard the dream which I have dreamed, and the interpretation thereof; now therefore give counsel and know and see what is to be done to the children of Israel, whereby we may prevail over them, before
their evil shall spring up against us. 26. and Reuel (Yethro) the Midianite answered the king and said, May the king live, may the king live forever. 27. If it seem good to the king, let him desist from the Hebrews and leave them, and let him not stretch forth his hand against them. 28. for these are they whom YHWH chose in days of old, and took as the lot of his inheritance from amongst all the nations of the earth and the kings of the earth; and who is there that stretched his hand against them with impunity, of whom their Elohim was not avenged?
29. Surely thou knowest that when Abraham went down to Egypt, Pharaoh, the former king of Egypt, saw Sarah his wife, and took her for a wife, because Abraham said, She is my sister, for he was afraid, lest the men of Egypt should slay him on account of his wife. 30. and when the king of Egypt had taken Sarah then Elohim smote him and his household with heavy plagues, until he restored unto Abraham his wife Sarah, then was he healed.
31. and Abimelech the Gerarite, king of the Philistines, Elohim punished on account of Sarah wife of Abraham, in stopping up every womb from man to beast. 32. When their Elohim came to Abimelech in the dream of night and terrified him in order that he might restore to Abraham Sarah whom he had taken, and afterward all the people of Gerar were punished on account of Sarah, and Abraham prayed to his Elohim for them,
and he was entreated of him, and he healed them. 33. and Abimelech feared all this evil that came upon him and his people, and he returned to Abraham his wife Sarah, and gave him with her many gifts. 34. He did so also to Isaac when he had driven him from Gerar, and God had done wonderful things to him, that all the water courses of Gerar were dried up, and their productive trees did not bring forth. 35. until Abimelech of Gerar, and Ahuzzath one of his friends, and Pichol the captain of his host, went to him and they bent and bowed down before him to the ground. 36. and they requested of him to supplicate for them, and he prayed to YHWH for them, and YHWH was entreated of him and he healed them. 37. Jacob also, the plain man, was delivered through his integrity from the hand of his brother Esau, and the hand of Laban the Syrian his mother's brother, who had sought his life; likewise from the hand of all the kings of Canaan who had come together against
him and his children to destroy them, and YHWH delivered them out of their hands, that they turned upon them and smote them, for who had ever stretched forth his hand against them with impunity? 38. Surely Pharaoh the former, thy father's father, raised Joseph the son of Jacob above all the princes of the land of Egypt, when he saw his wisdom, for through his wisdom he rescued all the inhabitants of the land from the famine. 39. after which he ordered Jacob and his children to come down to Egypt, in order that through their virtue, the land of Egypt and the land of Goshen might be delivered from the famine. 40. Now therefore if it seem good in thine eyes, cease from destroying the children of Israel, but if it be not thy will that they shall dwell in Egypt, send them forth from here, that they may go to the land of Canaan, the land where their ancestors sojourned.
41. and when Pharaoh heard the words of Jethro he was very angry with him, so that he rose with shame from the king's presence, and went to Midian, his land, and took Joseph's stick with him. 42. and the king said to Job the Uzite, What sayest thou Job, and what is thy advice respecting the Hebrews? 43. So Job said to the king, Behold all the inhabitants of the land are in thy power, let the king do as it seems good in his eyes.
44. and the king said unto Balaam, What dost thou say, Balaam, speak thy word that we may hear it.
45. and Balaam said to the king, Of all that the king has counselled against the Hebrews will they be delivered, and the king will not be able to prevail over them with any counsel. 46. for if thou thinkest to lessen them by the flaming fire, thou canst not prevail over them, for surely their Elohim delivered Abraham their father from Ur of the Chaldeans; and if thou thinkest to destroy them with a sword, surely Isaac their father was delivered from
it, and a ram was placed in his stead. 47. and if with hard and rigorous labour thou thinkest to lessen them, thou wilt not prevail even in this, for their father Jacob served Laban in all manner of hard work, and prospered. 48. Now therefore, O King, hear my words, for this is the counsel which is counselled against them, by which thou wilt prevail over them, and from which thou shouldst not depart. 49. If it please the king let him order all their children which shall be born from this day forward, to be thrown into the water, for by this canst thou wipe away their name, for none of them, nor of their fathers, were tried in this manner. 50. and the king heard the words of Balaam, and the thing pleased the king and the princes, and the king did according to the word of Balaam. 51. and the king ordered a proclamation to be issued and a law to be made throughout the land of Egypt, saying, Every male child born to the Hebrews from this day forward shall be thrown into the water. 52. and Pharaoh called unto all his servants, saying, Go now and seek throughout the land of Goshen where the children of Israel are, and see that every son born to the Hebrews shall be cast into the river, but every daughter you shall let live. 53. and when the children of Israel heard this thing which Pharaoh had commanded, to cast their male children into the river, some of the people separated from their wives and
others adhered to them. 54. and from that day forward, when the time of delivery arrived to those women of Israel who had remained with their husbands, they went to the field to bring forth there, and they brought forth in the field, and left their children upon the field and returned home. 55. and YHWH who had sworn to their ancestors to multiply them, sent one of his ministering angels which are in heaven to wash each child in water, to anoint and swathe it and to put into its hands two smooth stones from one of which it sucked milk
and from the other honey, and he caused its hair to grow to its knees, by which it might cover itself; to comfort it and to cleave to it, through his compassion for it. 56. and when Elohim had compassion over them and had desired to multiply them upon the face of the land, he ordered his earth to receive them to be preserved therein till the time of their growing up, after which the earth opened its mouth and vomited them forth and
they sprouted forth from the city like the herb of the earth, and the grass of the forest, and they returned each to his family and to his father's house, and they remained with them. 57. and the babes of the children of Israel were upon the earth like the herb of the field, through Elohim's grace to them. ......Josephus “Antiquities of the Jews” Book 2 Chapter 9: 3. a man whose name was Amram, one of the nobler sort of the Hebrews, was afraid for his whole nation, lest it should fail, by the want of young men to be brought up hereafter, and was very uneasy at it, his wife being then with child, and he knew not what to do. Hereupon he betook himself to prayer to God; and entreated him to have compassion on those men who had nowise transgressed the laws of his worship, and to afford them deliverance from the miseries they at that time endured, and to render abortive their enemies' hopes of the destruction of their nation. Accordingly God had mercy on him, and was moved by his supplication. He stood by him in his sleep, and exhorted him not to despair of his future favours. He said further, that he did not forget their piety towards him, and would always reward them for it, as he had formerly granted his favour to their forefathers, and made them increase from a few to so great a multitude. He put him in mind, that when Abraham was come alone out of Mesopotamia into Canaan, he had been made happy, not only in other respects, but that when his wife was at first barren, she was afterwards by him enabled to conceive seed, and bare him sons. That he left to Ishmael and to his posterity the country of Arabia; as also to his sons by Ketura, Troglodytis; and to Isaac, Canaan. That by my assistance, said he, he did great exploits in war, which, unless you be yourselves impious, you must still remember. As for Jacob, he became well known to strangers also, by the greatness of that prosperity in which he lived, and left to his sons, who came into Egypt with no more than seventy souls, while you are now become above six hundred thousand. Know therefore that I shall provide for you all in common what is for your good, and particularly for thyself what shall make thee famous; for that child, out of dread of whose nativity the Egyptians have doomed the Israelite children to destruction, shall be this child of thine, and shall be concealed from those who watch to destroy him: and when he is brought up in a surprising way, he shall deliver the Hebrew nation from the distress they are under from the Egyptians. His memory shall be famous while the world lasts; and this not only among the Hebrews, but foreigners also: - all which shall be the effect of my favour to thee, and to thy posterity. He shall also have such a brother (Aaron), that he shall himself obtain my priesthood, and his posterity shall have it after him to the end of the world.
4. When the vision had informed him of these things, Amram awaked and told it to Jochebed who was his wife. And now the fear increased upon them on account of the prediction in Amram's dream; for they were under concern, not only for the child, but on account of the great happiness that was to come to him also. However, the mother's labour was such as afforded a confirmation to what was foretold by God; for it was not known to those that watched her, by the easiness of her pains, and because the throes of her delivery did not fall upon her with violence. And now they nourished the child at home privately for three months; but after that time Amram, fearing he should be discovered, and, by falling under the king's displeasure, both he and his child should perish, and so he should make the promise of God of none effect, he determined rather to trust the safety and care of the child to God, than to depend on his own concealment of him, which he looked upon as a thing uncertain, and whereby both the child, so privately to be nourished, and himself should be in imminent danger; but he believed that God would some way for certain procure the safety of the child, in order to secure the truth of his own predictions. When they had thus determined, they made an ark of bulrushes, after the manner of a cradle, and of a bigness sufficient for an infant to be laid in, without being too straitened: they then daubed it over with slime, which would naturally keep out the water from entering between the bulrushes, and put the infant into it, and setting it afloat upon the river, they left its preservation to God; so the river received the child, and carried him along. But Miriam, the child's sister, passed along upon the bank over against him, as her mother had bid her, to see whither the ark would be carried, where God demonstrated that human wisdom was nothing, but that the Supreme Being is able to do whatsoever he pleases: that those who, in order to their own security, condemn others to destruction, and use great endeavours about it, fail of their purpose; but that others are in a surprising manner preserved, and obtain a prosperous condition almost from the very midst of their calamities; those, I mean, whose dangers arise by the appointment of God. And, indeed, such providence was exercised in the case of this child, as showed the power of God.
We learn through the book of Yasher and the writings from Josephus that Myriam was working at the "Queen house" and so could observe what was going on. ............
Jasher Chapter 68: 1. and it was at that time the spirit of Elohim was upon Miriam the daughter of Amram the sister of Aaron, and she went forth and prophesied about the house, saying, Behold a son will be born unto us from my father and mother this time, and he will save Israel from the hands of Egypt.
2. and when Amram heard the words of his daughter, he went and took his wife back to the house, after he had driven her away at the time when Pharaoh ordered every male child of the house of Jacob to be thrown into the water. 3. So Amram took Jochebed his wife, three years after he had driven her away, and he came to her and she conceived. 4. and at the end of seven months from her conception she brought forth a son, and the
whole house was filled with great light as of the light of the sun and moon at the time of their shining.
5. and when the woman saw the child that it was good and……. 6. In those days the Egyptians conspired to destroy all the Hebrews there. 17. and Bathia, the daughter of Pharaoh, went also to bathe in the river, owing to the consuming heat, and her maidens walked at the river side, and all the women of Egypt as well.
18. and Bathia lifted up her eyes to the river, and she saw the ark upon the water, and sent her maid to fetch it.
19. and she opened it and saw the child, and behold the babe wept, and she had compassion on him, and she said, This is one of the Hebrew children 21. and Miriam his sister was at that time amongst the Egyptian women at the river side, and she saw this thing and she said to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go and fetch a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee? 22. and Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go, and the young woman went and called the child's mother. 23. and Pharaoh's daughter said to Jochebed, Take this child away and suckle it for me, and I will pay thee thy wages, two bits of silver daily; and the woman took the child and nursed it. 24. and at the end of two years, when the child grew up, she brought him to the daughter of Pharaoh, and he was unto her as a son, and she called his name Moses, for she said, Because I drew him out of the water. 25. and Amram his father called his name Chabar, for he said, It was for him that he associated with his wife whom he had turned away. 26. and Jochebed his mother called his name Jekuthiel, Because, she said, I have hoped for him to the Almighty, and Elohim restored him unto me. Josephus “Antiquities of the Jews” Book 2:9
5. Thermuthis was the king's daughter. She was now diverting herself by the banks of the river; and seeing a cradle borne along by the current, she sent some that could swim, and bid them bring the cradle to her. When those that were sent on this errand came to her with the cradle, and she saw the little child, she was greatly in love with it, on account of its largeness and beauty; for God had taken such great care in the formation of Moses, that he caused him to be thought worthy of bringing up, and providing for, by all those that had taken the most fatal resolutions, on account of the dread of his nativity, for the destruction of the rest of the Hebrew nation. Thermuthis bid them bring her a woman that might afford her breast to the child; yet would not the child admit of her breast, but turned away from it, and did the like to many other women. Now Miriam was by when this happened, not to appear to be there on purpose, but only as staying to see the child; and she said, "It is in vain that thou, O queen, callest for these women for the nourishing of the child, who are no way of kin to it; but still, if thou wilt order one of the Hebrew women to be brought, perhaps it may admit the breast of one of its own nation." Now since she seemed to speak well, Thermuthis bid her procure such a one, and to bring one of those Hebrew women that gave suck. So when she had such authority given her, she came back and brought the mother, who was known to nobody there. And now the child gladly admitted the breast, and seemed to stick close to it; and so it was, that, at the queen's desire, the nursing of the child was entirely intrusted to the mother.
6. Hereupon it was that Thermuthis imposed this name Mouses upon him, from what had happened when he was put into the river; for the Egyptians call water by the name of Mo, and such as are saved out of it, by the name of Uses: so by putting these two words together, they imposed this name upon him. And he was, by the confession of all, according to God's prediction, as well for his greatness of mind as for his contempt of difficulties, the best of all the Hebrews, for Abraham was his ancestor of the seventh generation. For Moses was the son of Amram, who was the son of Caath, whose father Levi was the son of Jacob, who was the son of Isaac, who was the son of Abraham. Now Moses's understanding became superior to his age, nay, far beyond that standard; and when he was taught, he discovered greater quickness of apprehension than was usual at his age, and his actions at that time promised greater, when he should come to the age of a man. God did also give him that tallness, when he was but three years old, as was wonderful. And as for his beauty, there was nobody so unpolite as, when they saw Moses, they were not greatly surprised at the beauty of his countenance; nay, it happened frequently, that those that met him as he was carried along the road, were obliged to turn again upon seeing the child; that they left what they were about, and stood still a great while to look on him; for the beauty of the child was so remarkable and natural to him on many accounts, that it detained the spectators, and made them stay longer to look upon him. 7. Thermuthis therefore perceiving him to be so remarkable a child, adopted him for her son, having no child of her own. And when one time had carried Moses to her father, she showed him to him, and said she thought to make him her successor, if it should please God she should have no legitimate child of her own; and to him, "I have brought up a child who is of a divine form, (21) and of a generous mind; and as I have received him from the bounty of the river, in , I thought proper to adopt him my son, and the heir of thy kingdom." And she had said this, she put the infant into her father's hands: so he took him, and hugged him to his breast; and on his daughter's account, in a pleasant way, put his diadem upon his head; but Moses threw it down to the ground, and, in a puerile mood, he wreathed it round, and trod upon his feet, which seemed to bring along with evil presage concerning the kingdom of Egypt. But when the sacred scribe (it was Balaam) saw this, (he was the person who foretold that his nativity would the dominion of that kingdom low,) he made a violent attempt to kill him; and crying out in a frightful manner, he said, "This, O king! this child is he of whom God foretold, that if we kill him we shall be in no danger; he himself affords an attestation to the prediction of the same thing, by his trampling upon thy government, and treading upon thy diadem. Take him, therefore, out of the way, and deliver the Egyptians from the fear they are in about him; and deprive the Hebrews of the hope they have of being encouraged by him." But Thermuthis prevented him, and snatched the child away. And the king was not hasty to slay him, God himself, whose providence protected Moses, inclining the king to spare him. He was, therefore, educated with great care. So the Hebrews depended on him, and were of good hopes great things would be done by him; but the Egyptians were suspicious of what would follow such his education. Yet because, if Moses had been slain, there was no one, either akin or adopted, that had any oracle on his side for pretending to the crown of Egypt, and likely to be of greater advantage to them, they abstained from killing him. .....................We can see that the book of Yasher and the account of Josephus are in line with the Torah, giving us more inside, thus helping us to understand the life of our ancestors.
We have also seen that Yethro also called Reu’el, Job were with Balaam part of Pharaoh’s counsellors. Thus we can understand their position, when we read the Torah and see how they relate to one another. Yethro is to become Moshe’s father in law, Job is to become the man who bow before Elohim and do not deny him in spite of HaSatan tribulations, and Balaam is the wicked prophet who will teach Balak how to make the children of Israel fall..............;Exo 2:1 and a man of the house of Lĕwi went and married a daughter of Lĕwi. Exo 2:2 and the woman conceived and bore a son. And she saw that he was a lovely child, and she hid him three months. Exo 2:3 and when she could hide him no longer, she took an ark of wicker for him, and coated it with tar and pitch, and put the child in it, and laid it in the reeds by the edge of the river. Exo 2:4 and his sister (Myriam) stood at a distance, to know what would be done to him.
Exo 2:5 and the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river, and her young women were walking by the river-side. And when she saw the ark among the reeds, she sent her female servant to get it, Exo 2:6 and opened it and saw the child, and see, the baby wept. So she had compassion on him, and said, “This is one of the children of the Heḇrews.” Exo 2:7 and his sister said to Pharaoh’s daughter, “Shall I go and call a nurse for you from the Heḇrew women to nurse the child for you?” Exo 2:8 and Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Go.” And the girl went and called the child’s mother. Exo 2:9 and Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Take this child away and nurse him for me, then I shall pay your wages.” So the woman took the child and nursed him. Exo 2:10 and the child grew, and she brought him to Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Mosheh, saying, “Because I have drawn him out of the water.” Exo 2:11 and in those days it came to be, when Mosheh was grown, that he went out to his brothers and looked at their burdens. And he saw a Mitsrite beating a Heḇrew, one of his brothers. Exo 2:12 so he turned this way and that way, and when he saw no one, he smote the Mitsrite and hid him in the sand. Exo 2:13 and he went out the second day and saw two Heḇrew men fighting, and he said to the one who did the wrong, “Why do you smite your neighbour?” Exo 2:14 and he said, “Who made you a head and a judge over us? Do you intend to slay me as you slew the Mitsrite?” And Mosheh feared and said, “Truly, the matter is known!” Exo 2:15 and Pharaoh heard of this matter, and he sought to kill Mosheh. But Mosheh fled from the face of Pharaoh and dwelt in the land of Miḏyan. And he sat down by a well. Exo 2:16 and the priest of Miḏyan had seven daughters. And they came and drew water, and they filled the troughs to water their father’s flock, Exo 2:17 but the shepherds came and drove them away. Then Mosheh stood up and came to their rescue, and watered their flock. Exo 2:18 and they came to Reuel (Yethro)l their father, and he said, “How is it that you have come so soon today?” Exo 2:19 and they said, “A Mitsrite rescued us from the hand of the shepherds, and he also drew enough water for us and watered the flock.” Exo 2:20 and he said to his daughters, “And where is he? Why did you leave the man? Call him and let him eat bread.” Exo 2:21 and Mosheh agreed to dwell with the man, and he gave Tsipporah his daughter to Mosheh. Exo 2:22 and she bore him a son, and he called his name Gĕreshom, for he said, “I have become a sojourner in a foreign land.” Exo 2:23 and it came to be after these many days that the sovereign of Mitsrayim died. And the children of Yisra’ĕl groaned because of the slavery, and they cried out. And their cry came up to Elohim because of the slavery. Exo 2:24 and Elohim heard their groaning, and Elohim remembered His covenant with Aḇraham, with Yitsḥaq, and with Yaʽaqoḇ. Exo 2:25 and Elohim looked on the children of Yisra’ĕl, and Elohim knew!
Let us go back to the book of Yasher and to Josephus to see what we can learn concerning Moshe!
Jasher Chapter 70:1. and in the third year from the birth of Moses, Pharaoh was sitting at a banquet, whenAlparanith the queen was sitting at his right and Bathia at his left, and the lad Moses was lying upon her bosom, and Balaam the son of Beor with his two sons, and all the princes of the kingdom were sitting at table in the king's presence. 2. and the lad stretched forth his hand upon the king's head, and took the crown from the king's head and placed it on his own head.
3. and when the king and princes saw the work which the boy had done, the king and princes were terrified, and one man to his neighbor expressed astonishment. 4. and the king said unto the princes who were before him at table, What speak you and what say you, O ye princes, in this matter, and what is to be the judgment against the boy on account of this act? 5. and Balaam the son of Beor the magician answered before the king and princes, and he said, Remember now, O my lord and king, the dream which thou didst dream many days since, and that which thy servant interpreted unto thee. 6. Now therefore this is a child from the Hebrew children, in whom is the spirit of Elohim, and let not my lord the king imagine that this youngster did this thing without
knowledge. 7. for he is a Hebrew boy, and wisdom and understanding are with him, although he is yet a child, and with wisdom has he done this and chosen unto himself the kingdom of Egypt. 8. for this is the manner of all the Hebrews to deceive kings and their nobles, to do all these things cunningly, in order to make the kings of the earth and their men tremble. 9. Surely thou knowest that Abraham their father acted thus, who deceived the army of Nimrod king of Babel, and Abimelech king of Gerar, and that he possessed himself of the land of the children of Heth and all the kingdoms of Canaan. 20. And Balaam said to the king, Let us moreover call for all the judges of Egypt and the wise men thereof, and let us know if the judgment of death is due to this boy as thou
didst say, and then we will slay him………………… 24. and the angel, who seemed like one of the wise men of Pharaoh, answered and said as follows, before all the wise men of Egypt and before the king and the princes:
25. If it pleases the king let the king send for men who shall bring before him an onyx stone and a coal of fire, and place them before the child, and if the child shall stretch forth his hand and take the onyx stone, then shall we know that with wisdom has the youth done all that he has done, and we must slay him. 26. but if he stretch forth his hand upon the coal, then shall we know that it was not with knowledge that he did this thing, and he shall live. 27. and the thing seemed good in the eyes of the king and the princes, so the king did according to the word of the angel of YHWH. 28. and the king ordered the onyx stone and coal to be brought and placed before Moses.29. and they placed the boy before them, and the lad endeavoured to stretch forth his hand to the onyx stone, but the angel of YHWH took his hand and placed it upon the coal, and the coal became extinguished in his hand, and he lifted it up and put it into his mouth, and burned part of his lips and part of his tongue, and he became heavy in mouth and tongue.(read sh’mot 4:10) 30. and when the king and princes saw this, they knew that Moses had not acted with wisdom in taking off the crown from the king's head.
31. So the king and princes refrained from slaying the child, so Moses remained in Pharaoh's house, growing up, and YHWH was with him. 40. and Moses was in the king's house going out and coming in, YHWH gave him favour in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants, and in the eyes of all the people of Egypt, and they loved Moses exceedingly.
Moshe enquire Pharaoh to give the children of Israel a day free to keep the Shabbat.
Yahser chapter 70.:43. and Moses said unto Pharaoh, I pray thee my master, I have come to seek a small request from thee, turn not away my face empty; and Pharaoh said unto him, Speak.
44. and Moses said unto Pharaoh, Let there be given unto thy servants the children of Israel who are in Goshen, one day to rest therein from their labour. 45. and the king answered Moses and said, Behold I have lifted up thy face in this thing to grant thy request. 46. and Pharaoh ordered a proclamation to be issued throughout Egypt and Goshen, saying, 47. To you, all the children of Israel, thus says the king, for six days you shall do your work and labour, but on the seventh day you shall rest, and shall not perform any work, thus shall you do all the days, as the king and Moses the son of Bathia have commanded. 48. and Moses rejoiced at this thing which the king had granted to him, and all the children of Israel did as Moses ordered them. 49. for this thing was from YHWH to the children of Israel, for YHWH had begun to remember the children of Israel to save them for the sake of their fathers. 50. and YHWH was with Moses and his fame went throughout Egypt. 51. and Moses became great in the eyes of all the Egyptians, and in the eyes of all the children of Israel, seeking good for his people Israel and speaking words of peace regarding them to the king. Can you see how the keeping of Shabbat is in יהוה' eye, can you also see the parallel with us today, how יהוה has imparted our heart to keep the Shabbat, because he remember us!
Jasher Chapter 71:1. and when Moses was eighteen years old, he desired to see his father and mother and he went to them to Goshen, and when Moses had come near Goshen, he came to the place where the children of Israel were engaged in work, and he observed their burdens, and he saw an Egyptian smiting one of his Hebrew brethren. 2. and when the man who was beaten saw Moses he ran to him for help, for the man Moses was greatly respected in the house of Pharaoh, and he said to him, My Master attend to me, this Egyptian came to my house in the night, bound me, and came to my wife in my presence, and now he seeks to take my life away. 3. and when Moses heard this wicked thing, his anger was kindled against the Egyptian, and he turned this way and the other, and when he saw there was no man there he smote the Egyptian and hid him in the sand, and delivered the Hebrew from the hand of him that smote him.
The book of Yasher give us the reason why Moshe slew the Egyptian. 11. and the angel of YHWH took hold of the right hand of Moses, and brought him forth from Egypt, and placed him from without the borders of Egypt, a distance of forty days' journey. 12. and Aaron his brother alone remained in the land of Egypt, and he prophesied to the children of Israel, saying,……..
Yasher chapter 73:1. In the fifty-fifth year of the reign of Pharaoh king of Egypt, that is in the hundred and fifty-seventh year of the Israelites going down into Egypt, reigned Moses in Cush. 2. Moses was twenty-seven years old when he began to reign over Cush, and forty yearsdid he reign………28. And Balaam the magician, when he saw that the city was taken, he opened the gate and
he and his two sons and eight brothers fled and returned to Egypt to Pharaoh king of Egypt. 29. They are the sorcerers and magicians who are mentioned in the book of the law, standing against Moses when YHWH brought the plagues upon Egypt. 30. So Moses took the city by his wisdom, and the children of Cush placed him on the throne instead of Kikianus king of Cush. 36. Therefore Moses turned not his heart, nor his eyes to the wife of Kikianus all the days that he reigned over Cush. 37. and Moses feared YHWH his God all his life, and Moses walked before YHWH in truth, with all his heart and soul, he turned not from the right way all the days of his life;he declined not from the way either to the right or to the left, in which Abraham, Isaac and Jacob had walked.
Jasher Chapter 74;2. in the sixteenth year of the reign of Moses over Cush, Baal Chanan the son of Achbor reigned in the land of Edom over all the children of Edom for thirty-eight years.
Jasher Chapter 76
1. and Moses the son of Amram was still king in the land of Cush in those days, and he prospered in his kingdom, and he conducted the government of the children of Cush in justice, in righteousness, and integrity.
2. and all the children of Cush loved Moses all the days that he reigned over them, and all the inhabitants of the land of Cush were greatly afraid of him. 3. and in the fortieth year of the reign of Moses over Cush, Moses was sitting on the royal throne whilst Adoniah the queen was before him, and all the nobles were sitting around
him. 4. and Adoniah the queen said before the king and the princes, What is this thing which you, the children of Cush, have done for this long time? 5. Surely you know that for forty years that this man has reigned over Cush he has not approached me, nor has he served the gods of the children of Cush. 6. Now therefore hear, O ye children of Cush, and let this man no more reign over you as he is not of our flesh. 11. but the children of Cush gave many presents to Moses, and sent him from them with great honor. 12. So Moses went forth from the land of Cush, and went home and ceased to reign over Cush, and Moses was sixty-six years old when he went out of the land of Cush, for the thing was from YHWH, for the period had arrived which he had appointed in the days
of old, to bring forth Israel from the affliction of the children of Ham. 13. so Moses went to Midian, for he was afraid to return to Egypt on account of Pharaoh, and he went and sat at a well of water in Midian 14. and the seven daughters of Reuel(Yethro) the Midianite went out to feed their father's flock 21. and Moses related to Reuel that he had fled from Egypt and that he reigned forty years over Cush, and that they afterward had taken the government from him, and had sent him away in peace with honor and with presents. 22. and when Reuel had heard the words of Moses, Reuel said within himself, I will put this man into the prison house, whereby I shall conciliate the children of Cush, for he has fled from them. 23. and they took and put him into the prison house, and Moses was in prison ten years, and whilst Moses was in the prison house, Zipporah the daughter of Reuel took pity over him, and supported him with bread and water all the time.
Yasher chapter 77
25. andElohim saw the burden of the children of Israel, and their heavy work in those days, and he determined to deliver them. 26. and Moses the son of Amram was still confined in the dungeon in those days, in the
house of Reuel the Midianite, and Zipporah the daughter of Reuel did support him with food secretly day by day. 27. and Moses was confined in the dungeon in the house of Reuel for ten years. 29. Zipporah said to her father Reuel, No person inquires or seeks after the Hebrew man, whom thou didst bind in prison now ten years.
30. Now therefore, if it seem good in thy sight, let us send and see whether he is living or dead, but her father knew not that she had supported him. 31. and Reuel her father answered and said to her, Has ever such a thing happened that a man should be shut up in a prison without food for ten years, and that he should live?
32. and Zipporah answered her father, saying, Surely thou hast heard that the Elohim of the Hebrews is great and awful, and does wonders for them at all times. 33. He it was who delivered Abraham from Ur of the Chaldeans, and Isaac from the sword of his father, and Jacob from the angel of YHWH who wrestled with him at the ford of Jabbuk. 34. also with this man has he done many things, he delivered him from the river in Egypt
and from the sword of Pharaoh, and from the children of Cush, so also can he deliver him from famine and make him live. 35. and the thing seemed good in the sight of Reuel, and he did according to the word of his daughter, and sent to the dungeon to ascertain what became of Moses. 36. and he saw, and behold the man Moses was living in the dungeon, standing upon his feet, praising and praying to the God of his ancestors. 37. and Reuel (Yethro) commanded Moses to be brought out of the dungeon, so they shaved him and he changed his prison garments and ate bread. 38. and afterward Moses went into the garden of Reuel which was behind the house, and he there prayed to YHWH his Elohim, who had done mighty wonders for him. 39. and it was that whilst he prayed he looked opposite to him, and behold a sapphire stick was placed in the ground, which was planted in the midst of the garden. 40. and he approached the stick and he looked, and behold the name of YHWH ELOHIM of hosts was engraved thereon, written and developed upon the stick. 41. and he read it and stretched forth his hand and he plucked it like a forest tree from the thicket, and the stick was in his hand.
42. and this is the stick with which all the works of our Elohim were performed, after he had created heaven and earth, and all the host of them, seas, rivers and all their fishes. 43. and when Elohim had driven Adam from the garden of Eden, he took the stick in his hand and went and tilled the ground from which he was taken.
44. and the stick came down to Noah and was given to Shem and his descendants, until it came into the hand of Abraham the Hebrew. 45. and when Abraham had given all he had to his son Isaac, he also gave to him this stick. 46. and when Jacob had fled to Padan-aram, he took it into his hand, and when he returned to his father he had not left it behind him. 47. also when he went down to Egypt he took it into his hand and gave it to Joseph, one portion above his brethren, for Jacob had taken it by force from his brother Esau. 48. and after the death of Joseph, the nobles of Egypt came into the house of Joseph, and the stick came into the hand of Reuel the Midianite, and when he went out of Egypt, he took it in his hand and planted it in his garden. 49. and all the mighty men of the Kinites tried to pluck it when they endeavoured to get Zipporah his daughter, but they were unsuccessful. 51. and when Reuel saw the stick in the hand of Moses, he wondered at it, and he gave him
his daughter Zipporah for a wife. ...............
It is an amazing thing to me that nobody teach about the forty years of Moseh been King in the land of Cush been in the desert or even the time he left Egypt after having killed the Egyptians not knowing the reason why did Moshe killed the Egyptian. Praise Yah, the book of Yasher teach many things, so we can learn that Moshe was forty years king over Cush the descendant from Ham, son of Noach and that he was ten years in jail in Yethro's house before he could do what Elohim wanted him to do.
Josephus confirms many points from the book of Yasher, even if he doesn’t give so many details as do the book of Yasher. We here learn why Moshe didn’t circumcise his sons while the Torah do not give details and it could look strange to see Moshe's behaviour:...............
Yasher chapter 79:7. and Moses hearkened to all that YHWH had commanded him, and he returned to his father in law and told him the thing, and Reuel said to him, Go in peace. 8. and Moses rose up to go to Egypt, and he took his wife and sons with him, and he was at an inn in the road, and an angel of Elohim came down, and sought an occasion against him. 9. and he wished to kill him on account of his first born son, because he had not circumcised him, and had transgressed the covenant which YHWH had made with Abraham. 10. For Moses had hearkened to the words of his father-in-law which he had spoken to him, not to circumcise his first born son, therefore he circumcised him not. 11. and Zipporah saw the angel of YHWH seeking an occasion against Moses, and she knew that this thing was owing to his not having circumcised her son Gershom. 12. and Zipporah hastened and took of the sharp rock stones that were there, and she circumcised her son, and delivered her husband and her son from the hand of the angel of YHWH.
Chapter 3: Moshe's call - Exo 3:1 and Mosheh was shepherding the flock of Yithro his father-in-law, the priest of Miḏyan. And he led the flock to the back of the wilderness, and came to Ḥorĕḇ, the mountain of Elohim. Exo 3:2 and the Messenger of יהוה appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. And he looked and saw the bush burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed. Exo 3:3 And Mosheh said, “Let me turn aside now, and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.” Exo 3:4 and יהוה saw that he turned aside to see, and Elohim called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Mosheh! Mosheh!” And he said, “Here I am.” Exo 3:5 and He said, “Do not come near here. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is set-apart ground.” Exo 3:6 and He said, “I am the Elohim of your father, the Elohim of Aḇraham, the Elohim of Yitsḥaq, and the Elohim of Yaʽaqoḇ.” And Mosheh hid his face, for he was afraid to look at Elohim. Exo 3:7 and יהוה said, “I have indeed seen the oppression of My people who are in Mitsrayim, and have heard their cry because of their slave-drivers, for I know their sorrows. Exo 3:8 “And I have come down to deliver them from the hand of the Mitsrites, and to bring them up from that land to a good and spacious land, to a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Kenaʽanites and the Ḥittites and the Amorites and the Perizzites and the Ḥiwwites and the Yeḇusites. Exo 3:9 “And now, see, the cry of the children of Yisra’ĕl has come to Me, and I have also seen the oppression with which the Mitsrites oppress them. Exo 3:10 “And now, come, I am sending you to Pharaoh, to bring My people, the children of Yisra’ĕl, out of Mitsrayim.”Exo 3:11 and Mosheh said to Elohim, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the children of Yisra’ĕl out of Mitsrayim?” Exo 3:12 and He said, “Because I am with you. And this is to you the sign that I have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Mitsrayim, you are to serve Elohim on this mountain.” Exo 3:13 and Mosheh said to Elohim, “See, when I come to the children of Yisra’ĕl and say to them, ‘The Elohim of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they say to me, ‘What is His Name?’ what shall I say to them?” Exo 3:14 and Elohim said to Mosheh, “I am that which I am.”1 And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘I am has sent me to you.’ ” Footnote: 1The Heḇrew text reads: ’eyeh ’asher ’eyeh, the word ’eyeh being derived from hayah which means to be, to exist, but the Aramaic text here in v. 14 reads: ayah ashar ayah. This is not His Name, but it is an explanation that leads up to the revelation of His Name in v. 15, namely: יהוה. Exo 3:15 and Elohim said further to Mosheh, “Thus you are to say to the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘יהוה Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Aḇraham, the Elohim of Yitsḥaq, and the Elohim of Yaʽaqoḇ, has sent me to you. This is My Name forever, and this is My remembrance to all generations.’
Exo 3:16 “Go, and you shall gather the elders of Yisra’ĕl together, and say to them, ‘יהוה Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Aḇraham, of Yitsḥaq, and of Yaʽaqoḇ, appeared to me, saying, “I have indeed visited you and seen what is done to you in Mitsrayim;Exo 3:17 and I say: I am bringing you up out of the affliction of Mitsrayim to the land of the Kenaʽanite and the Ḥittite and the Amorite and the Perizzite and the Ḥiwwite and the Yeḇusite, to a land flowing with milk and honey.” Exo 3:18 “and they shall listen to your voice. And you shall come, you and the elders of Yisra’ĕl, to the sovereign of Mitsrayim, and you shall say to him, ‘יהוה Elohim of the Heḇrews has met with us. And now, please, let us go three days’ journey into the wilderness to slaughter to יהוה our Elohim.’ Exo 3:19 “But I know that the sovereign of Mitsrayim is not going to let you go, not even by a strong hand. Exo 3:20 “And I shall stretch out My hand and smite Mitsrayim with all My wonders which I shall do in its midst. And after that he shall let you go. Exo 3:21 “And I shall give this people favor in the eyes of the Mitsrites. And it shall be, that when you go, you shall not go empty-handed.
Exo 3:22 “But every woman shall ask from her neighbor and from the stranger in her house, objects of silver, and objects of gold, and garments. And you shall put them on your sons and on your daughters, and shall plunder the Mitsrites.”
3:14’eyeh ’asher ’eyeh3:15“Thus you are to say to the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘יהוה Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Aḇraham, the Elohim of Yitsḥaq, and the Elohim of Yaʽaqoḇ, has sent me to you. This is My Name forever, and this is My remembrance to all generations.

It is amazing that today all around the world the Christians proudly call him “Lord” “Seigneur” “Gehino” which means “Ba’al” the name of a pagan deity! יהוה says that His name is to be remembered from generation to generation forever, Hebrew Olam which means “out of mind”, to the vanishing point , always, perpetual, eternal.
Let us look from the account of Josephus in “Antiquities of the Jews”.
Book 2 Chapter 12:. NOW Moses, when he had obtained the favor of Jethro, for that was one of the names of Raguel, staid there and fed his flock; but some time afterward, taking his station at the mountain called Sinai, he drove his flocks thither to feed them. Now this is the highest of all the mountains thereabout, and the best for pasturage, the herbage being there good; and it had not been before fed upon, because of the opinion men had that God dwelt there, the shepherds not daring to ascend up to it; and here it was that a wonderful prodigy happened to Moses; for a fire fed upon a thorn bush, yet did the green leaves and the flowers continue untouched, and the fire did not at all consume the fruit branches, although the flame was great and fierce. Moses was aftrighted at this strange sight, as it was to him; but he was still more astonished when the fire uttered a voice, and called to him by name, and spake words to him, by which it signified how bold he had been in venturing to come into a place whither no man had ever come before, because the place was divine; and advised him to remove a great way off from the flame, and to be contented with what he had seen; and though he were himself a good man, and the offspring of great men, yet that he should not pry any further; and he foretold to him, that he should have glory and honour among men, by the blessing of God upon him. He also commanded him to go away thence with confidence to Egypt, in order to his being the commander and conductor of the body of the Hebrews, and to his delivering his own people from the injuries they suffered there: "For," said God, "they shall inhabit this happy land which your forefather Abraham inhabited, and shall have the enjoyment of all good things." But still he enjoined them, when he brought the Hebrews out of the land of Egypt, to come to that place, and to offer sacrifices of thanksgiving there, such were the divine oracles which were delivered out of the fire. 2. But Moses was astonished at what he saw, and much more at what he heard; and he said, "I think it would be an instance of too great madness, O YHWH, for one of that regard I bear to thee, to distrust thy power, since I myself adore it, and know that it has been made manifest to my progenitors: but I am still in doubt how I, who am a private man, and one of no abilities, should either persuade my own countrymen to leave the country they now inhabit, and to follow me to a land whither I lead them; or, if they should be persuaded, how can I force Pharaoh to permit them to depart, since they augment their own wealth and prosperity by the labors and works they put upon them ?"
3. But God persuaded him to be courageous on all occasions, and promised to be with him, and to assist him in his words, when he was to persuade men; and in his deeds, when he was to perform wonders. He bid him also to take a signal of the truth of what he said, by throwing his rod upon the ground, which, when he had done, it crept along, and was become a serpent, and rolled itself round in its folds, and erected its head, as ready to revenge itself on such as should assault it; after which it become a rod again as it was before. After this God bid Moses to put his right hand into his bosom: he obeyed, and when he took it out it was white, and in colour like to chalk, but afterward it returned to its wonted color again. He also, upon God's command, took some of the water that was near him, and poured it upon the ground, and saw the colour was that of blood. Upon the wonder that Moses showed at these signs, God exhorted him to be of good courage, and to be assured that he would be the greatest support to him; and bid him make use of those signs, in order to obtain belief among all men, that "thou art sent by me, and dost all things according to my commands. Accordingly I enjoin thee to make no more delays, but to make haste to Egypt, and to travel night and day, and not to draw out the time, and so make the slavery of the Hebrews and their sufferings to last the longer."
4. Moses having now seen and heard these wonders that assured him of the truth of these promises of God, had no room left him to disbelieve them: he entreated him to grant him that power when he should be in Egypt; and besought him to vouchsafe him the knowledge of his own name; and since he had heard and seen him, that he would also tell him his name, that when he offered sacrifice he might invoke him by such his name in his oblations. Whereupon God declared to him his holy name, which had never been discovered to men before; concerning which it is not lawful for me to say any more (24) Now these signs accompanied Moses, not then only, but always when he prayed for them: of all which signs he attributed the firmest assent to the fire in the bush; and believing that God would be a gracious supporter to him, he hoped he should be able to deliver his own nation, and bring calamities on the Egyptians.
Can you imagine that you come back somewhere under the leadership of Elohim, a place you left forty years before and you are in charge to proclaim יהוה's will to the people. Try to imagine how could be the reaction of those you left many years before! While Moshe was in Cush one tribe of the Children of Israel, Ephraim decided to leave Egypt thinking that the time was over to stay in Egypt. A lection and a strong warning to all of us:
Jasher Chapter 75:1. at that time, in the hundred and eightieth year of the Israelites going down into Egypt,there went forth from Egypt valiant men, thirty thousand on foot, from the children of Israel, who were all of the tribe of Joseph, of the children of Ephraim the son of Joseph.2. for they said the period was completed which YHWH had appointed to the children of
Israel in the times of old, which he had spoken to Abraham. 3. and these men girded themselves, and they put each man his sword at his side, and every man his armor upon him, and they trusted to their strength, and they went out together from Egypt with a mighty hand. . but they brought no provision for the road, only silver and gold, not even bread for that day did they bring in their hands, for they thought of getting their provision for pay
from the Philistines, and if not they would take it by force. 5. and these men were very mighty and valiant men, one man could pursue a thousand and two could rout ten thousand, so they trusted to their strength and went together as they were. 6. and they directed their course toward the land of Gath, and they went down and found
the shepherds of Gath feeding the cattle of the children of Gath. 7. and they said to the shepherds, Give us some of the sheep for pay, that we may eat, for we are hungry, for we have eaten no bread this day. 8. and the shepherds said, Are they our sheep or cattle that we should give them to you even for pay? so the children of Ephraim approached to take them by force. 9. and the shepherds of Gath shouted over them that their cry was heard at a distance, so all the children of Gath went out to them. 10. and when the children of Gath saw the evil doings of the children of Ephraim, they returned and assembled the men of Gath, and they put on each man his armor, and came forth to the children of Ephraim for battle. 11. and they engaged with them in the valley of Gath, and the battle was severe, and they smote from each other a great many on that day. 12. and on the second day the children of Gath sent to all the cities of the Philistines that they should come to their help, saying, 13. Come up unto us and help us, that we may smite the children of Ephraim who have come forth from Egypt to take our cattle, and to fight against us without cause. 14. Now the souls of the children of Ephraim were exhausted with hunger and thirst, for they had eaten no bread for three days. And forty thousand men went forth from the cities of the Philistines to the assistance of the men of Gath. 15. and these men were engaged in battle with the children of Ephraim, and YHWH delivered the children of Ephraim into the hands of the Philistines. 16. and they smote all the children of Ephraim, all who had gone forth from Egypt, none
were remaining but ten men who had run away from the engagement. 17. for this evil was from YHWH against the children of Ephraim, for they transgressed the word of YHWH in going forth from Egypt, before the period had arrived which the YHWH in the days of old had appointed to Israel. 18. and of the Philistines also there fell a great many, about twenty thousand men, and their brethren carried them and buried them in their cities.
19. and the slain of the children of Ephraim remained forsaken in the valley of Gath for many days and years, and were not brought to burial, and the valley was filled with men's bones. 20. and the men who had escaped from the battle came to Egypt, and told all the children of Israel all that had befallen them. 21. and their father Ephraim mourned over them for many days, and his brethren came to console him. 22. and he came unto his wife and she bare a son, and he called his name Beriah, for she was unfortunate in his house …….
Exo 4:1 and Mosheh answered and said, “And if they do not believe me, nor listen to my voice, and say, ‘יהוה has not appeared to you?’ ” Exo 4:2 and יהוה said to him, “What is that in your hand?” And he said, “A rod.” Exo 4:3 and He said, “Throw it on the ground.” So he threw it on the ground, and it became a serpent. And Mosheh fled from it. Exo 4:4 and יהוה said to Mosheh, “Reach out your hand and take it by the tail” – so he reached out his hand and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand – Exo 4:5 so that they believe that יהוה Elohim of their fathers, the Elohim of Aḇraham, the Elohim of Yitsḥaq, and the Elohim of Yaʽaqoḇ, has appeared to you.” Exo 4:6 and יהוה said to him again, “Now put your hand in your bosom.” And he put his hand in his bosom, and when he took it out, and see, his hand was leprous, like snow. Exo 4:7 and He said, “Put your hand in your bosom again.” So he put his hand in his bosom again, and drew it out of his bosom, and see, it was restored like his other flesh. Exo 4:8 “and it shall be, if they do not believe you, nor listen to the voice of the first sign, they shall believe the voice of the latter sign. Exo 4:9 “and it shall be, if they do not believe even these two signs, or listen to your voice, that you shall take water from the river and pour it on the dry land. And the water which you take from the river shall become blood on the dry land.” Exo 4:10 and Mosheh said to יהוה, “O יהוה, I am not a man of words, neither before nor since You have spoken to Your servant, for I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.” Exo 4:11 and יהוה said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Or who makes dumb, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, יהוה? Exo 4:12 “and now, go, and I shall be with your mouth and teach you what to say.” Exo 4:13 but he said, “O יהוה, please send by the hand of him whom You would send.” Exo 4:14 and the displeasure of יהוה burned against Mosheh, and He said, “Is not Aharon the Lĕwite your brother? I know that he speaks well. And see, he is also coming out to meet you. And when he sees you, he shall be glad in his heart. Exo 4:15 “and you shall speak to him and put the words in his mouth. And I am with your mouth and with his mouth, and I shall teach you what to do. Exo 4:16 “and he shall speak for you to the people. And it shall be that he shall be a mouth for you, and you shall be an elohim1 for him. Footnote: 1Or mighty one, which is proof that elohim is but a title, indicating order or authority – it is not a proper name. Exo 4:17 “And take this rod in your hand, with which you shall do the signs.” Exo 4:18 Then Mosheh went and returned to Yithro his father-in-law, and said to him, “Please let me go and return to my brothers who are in Mitsrayim to see whether they are still alive.” And Yithro said to Mosheh, “Go in peace.”
Exo 4:19 and יהוה said to Mosheh in Miḏyan, “Go, return to Mitsrayim, for all the men are dead who sought your life.”
Exo 4:20 so Mosheh took his wife and his sons and set them on a donkey, and he returned to the land of Mitsrayim. And Mosheh took the rod of Elohim in his hand. Exo 4:21 and יהוה said to Mosheh, “As you go back to Mitsrayim, see that you do all those wonders before Pharaoh which I have put in your hand. But I am going to harden his heart, so that he does not let the people go. Exo 4:22 “and you shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus said יהוה, “Yisra’ĕl is My son, My first-born, Exo 4:23 so I say to you, let My son go to serve Me. But if you refuse to let him go, see, I am killing your son, your first-born.” ’ ” Exo 4:24 and it came to be on the way, in the lodging place, that יהוה met him and sought to kill him. Exo 4:25 and Tsipporah took a sharp stone and cut off the foreskin of her son and threw it at Mosheh’s feet, and said, “You are indeed a bridegroom of blood to me!” Exo 4:26 so He let him go. Then she said, “You are a bridegroom of blood,” because of the circumcision. Exo 4:27 and יהוה said to Aharon, “Go to meet Mosheh in the wilderness.” And he went and met him on the mountain of Elohim, and kissed him. Exo 4:28 Mosheh then told Aharon all the words of יהוה who had sent him, and all the signs which He had commanded him. Exo 4:29 and Mosheh went with Aharon and gathered together all the elders of the children of Yisra’ĕl. Exo 4:30 and Aharon spoke all the words which יהוה had spoken to Mosheh. Then he did the signs before the eyes of the people. Exo 4:31 and the people believed. And they heard that יהוה had visited the children of Yisra’ĕl and that He had looked on their affliction, and they bowed their heads and did obeisance. ………………
Chapter 5. Verse 2 It is taught that when Moshe appeared before Pharaoh and spoke the name יהוה that Pharaoh asked his scribe to bring the list of the gods of Egypt and when he didn’t found the name in the list, arrogantly told Moshe “ I don’t know him” so I will not let the children of Israel go. Moshe was already warned of Elohim who told him that He will harden Pharaoh’s heart.
How it is today, what does the rulers of the world say, do they know the name of our Elohim, or do they ignore and oppress the people? It is so far that in the US the bible has been removed from the school not to speak from France where since 1789 Elohim has been publicly been rejected and replaced by the “goddess of reason Marianne” whose figure was on French coins, and has become the statue of Liberty in New York! That was the work of the Illuminati who already were at work to destroy the faith of the people. Since this time faith has been decreasing in France and today people have turned to either Roman Catholic hypocrisies or to the hedonism (search of pleasure) promote by TV and Newspapers. After that Pharaoh increased the burden of the children of Israel by removing the straw from them. Verse
more work be laid on the men, so that they labour in it, and not pay attention
to words of falsehood.” Here is what the rulers of the world do today, they
lay burden on people in order to “keep them busy”. After that they have no
appetite for the “godly things” when they come home, they fix their eyes on the
TV screen been lazy and “drunk” by the lies of the entertainers. Modern “bricks”!
Today the “bricks” are the taxes!
Every year the rulers find new taxes. People think they are free, but their
load, burden is the taxes they have to pay, taxes on food, buying bread, milk,
cars, whatever you buy, you pay taxes while the government make debts, endless
with arrogance, boasting themselves to be wise. When a way of taxes seems to be
a problem, they “generously” remove the taxes while proclaiming a new one on
another area. Not only to exchange, had they found out new system to “protect”
the environment proclaiming things from their “wise men” have who all rejected יהוה. This is Mitsaryim in world scale, waiting for
the revelation of the man of perdition whom our Master will destroy with the
word of His mouth……Verses 20 – 23
The children of Israel were discouraged by the hard task forced to them by Pharaoh. They bring accusation to Moshe and Aaron for all the trouble they have. You remember, it was יהוה who told Abraham that this would happen, so it couldn’t be Moshe’s fault. How it is with us, how do we react when things seems to go bad, or even from bad to worse, do we easily accuse those who have shown us the way? Do we follow the way of the majority or do we wait patiently, putting our trust in יהוה and His word, knowing that יהושע has made the way for us and paid the Price! Just try to be honest and answer this question. We all are under challenge and lead by the Ruach (Spirit) of Elohim, in the wilderness in order to become more and more like our Master יהושע our elder Brother. HalleluYah! …………….
Chapter 5: יהוה to deliver his people: 11. and Pharaoh king of Egypt greatly increased the labor of the children of Israel in those days, and continued to make his yoke heavier upon the children of Israel. 12. and he ordered a proclamation to be made in Egypt, saying, Give no more straw to the people to make bricks with, let them go and gather themselves straw as they can find it. 13. also the tale of bricks which they shall make let them give each day, and diminish nothing from them, for they are idle in their work. 14. and the children of Israel heard this, and they mourned and sighed, and they cried unto YHWH on account of the bitterness of their souls. 15. and YYHWH heard the cries of the children of Israel, and saw the oppression with
which the Egyptians oppressed them. 16. and YHWH was jealous of his people and his inheritance, and heard their voice, and he resolved to take them out of the affliction of Egypt, to give them the land of Canaan
for a possession
Chapter 5: Pharaoh's arrogance toward יהוה ..Today world leaders also boast about their own power and do not know the Name of the living Elohim they transgress daily the divine Torah and bring יהוה' people under hard pressure. Are you also crying to our heavenly Father to deliver us and send our Master יהושע to establish His Kingdom? Let us read what we can learn from the book of Yasher: 8:20. and Moses and Aaron rose up early on the next day, and they went to the house of Pharaoh, and they took in their hands the stick of God. 21. and when they came to the king's gate, two young lions were confined there with iron instruments, and no person went out or came in from before them, unless those whom the king ordered to come, when the conjurors came and withdrew the lions by their incantations, and this brought them to the king.
22. and Moses hastened and lifted up the stick upon the lions, and he loosed them, and Moses and Aaron came into the king's house. 23. The lions also came with them in joy, and they followed them and rejoiced as a dog
rejoices over his master when he comes from the field. 24. and when Pharaoh saw this thing he was astonished at it, and he was greatly terrified at the report, for their appearance was like the appearance of the children of God. 25. and Pharaoh said to Moses, What do you require? and they answered him, saying, YHWH God of the Hebrews has sent us to thee, to say, Send forth my people that they may serve me. 26. and when Pharaoh heard their words he was greatly terrified before them, and he said to them, Go today and come back to me tomorrow, and they did according to the word of the king. 27. and when they had gone Pharaoh sent for Balaam the magician and to Jannes* and Jambres* his sons (read , and to all the magicians and conjurors and counsellors which belonged to the king, and they all came and sat before the king. *The name Jannes and Jambres are only one time mentioned in the Brit Chadasha (N.T) where did Sha'ul got the names, if not from the Book of Yasher?
2Ti 3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. ........78:28. and the king told them all the words which Moses and his brother Aaron had spoken to him, and the magicians said to the king, But how came the men to thee, on account of the lions which were confined at the gate? 29. and the king said, Because they lifted up their rod against the lions and loosed them, and came to me, and the lions also rejoiced at them as a dog rejoices to meet his master. 30. and Balaam the son of Beor the magician answered the king, saying, These are none
else than magicians like ourselves. 31. now therefore send for them, and let them come and we will try them, and the king did so. 32. and in the morning Pharaoh sent for Moses and Aaron to come before the king, and
they took the rod of God, and came to the king and spoke to him, saying, 33. thus said YHWH God of the Hebrews, Send my people that they may serve me. 34. and the king said to them, But who will believe you that you are the messengers of God and that you come to me by his order? 35. now therefore give a wonder or sign in this matter, and then the words which you speak will be believed. 36. and Aaron hastened and threw the rod out of his hand before Pharaoh and before his servants, and the rod turned into a serpent. 37. and the sorcerers saw this and they cast each man his rod upon the ground and they became serpents. 38. and the serpent of Aaron's rod lifted up its head and opened its mouth to swallow the rods of the magicians. 39. and Balaam the magician answered and said, This thing has been from the days of old, that a serpent should swallow its fellow, and that living things devour each other. 40. now therefore restore it to a rod as it was at first, and we will also restore our rods as they were at first, and if thy rod shall swallow our rods, then shall we know that the spirit of God is in thee, and if not, thou art only an artificer like unto ourselves. 41. and Aaron hastened and stretched forth his hand and caught hold of the serpent's tail and it became a rod in his hand, and the sorcerers did the like with their rods, and they got hold, each man of the tail of his serpent, and they became rods as at first. 42. and when they were restored to rods, the rod of Aaron swallowed up their rods. 43. and when the king (Pharaoh) saw this thing, he ordered the book of records that related to the kings of Egypt, to be brought, and they brought the book of records, the chronicles of the kings of Egypt, in which all the idols of Egypt were inscribed, for they thought of finding therein the name of Yehovah, but they found it not. 44. and Pharaoh said to Moses and Aaron, Behold I have not found the name of your God written in this book, and his name I know not. 45. and the counsellors and wise men answered the king, We have heard that the God of the Hebrews is a son of the wise, the son of ancient kings. 46. and Pharaoh turned to Moses and Aaron and said to them, I know not YHWH whom you have declared, neither will I send his people. 47. and they answered and said to the king, YHWH God of Gods is his name, and he proclaimed his name over us from the days of our ancestors, and sent us, saying, Go to Pharaoh and say unto him, Send my people that they may serve me. 48. now therefore send us, that we may take a journey for three days in the wilderness, and there may sacrifice to him, for from the days of our going down to Egypt, he has not taken from our hands either burnt offering, oblation or sacrifice, and if thou wilt not send us, his anger will be kindled against thee, and he will smite Egypt either with the
plague or with the sword. 49. and Pharaoh said to them, Tell me now his power and his might; and they said to him, He created the heaven and the earth, the seas and all their fishes, he formed the light, created the darkness, caused rain upon the earth and watered it, and made the herbage and grass to sprout, he created man and beast and the animals of the forest, the birds of the air and the fish of the sea, and by his mouth they live and die. 50. Surely he created thee in thy mother's womb, and put into thee the breath of life, and reared thee and placed thee upon the royal throne of Egypt, and he will take thy breath and soul from thee, and return thee to the ground whence thou wast taken. 51. and the anger of the king was kindled at their words, and he said to them, But who amongst all the Gods of nations can do this? my river (the Nile) is mine own, and I have made it for myself. 52. and he drove them from him, and he ordered the labor upon Israel to be more severe
than it was yesterday and before.
The arrogance from Pharaoh is extreme and he is blinded by his own power over Egypt. He cannot realize a single moment that if he is in this position it was יהוה's work as Sha'ul wrote to the Romains: Rom 9:17 for the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.
Rom 9:18 therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth.
Why did יהוה act so with Pharaoh? The question has many answers here two of them:
Rom 9:20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against YHWH? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? Rom 9:21 hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?...............יהוה is the Creator of everything including man. Pharaoh forgot that he got life not on his own power. This was one of the answer the other we can read in the book of Proverbs: Pro 16:5 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to YHWH: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished. Pro 21:4 an high look, and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin. Pro 16:18 pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. ..................Pride is sin and brings destruction. The “Pharaohs” (world rulers) of today are full of pride and proclaim themselves to be wise not having found the Name of Elohim in their books of Chronicle because only HaSatan words fill their knowledge. Verse 12 we read……….the people were scattered in all the land of Mitsrayim – to gather stubble for straw. Are not today those from Ya'acov Household the true Israelites scattered in the all world (Mitsrayim) searching how to make "bricks"? The word Egypt in Hebrew:
Egypt: Strong's # H4714 מצרים mitsrayim mits-rah'-yim
Dual of H4693; Mitsrajim, that is, Upper and Lower Egypt: - Egypt, Egyptians, Mizraim.
H4693 mâtsôr maw-tsore' The same as H4692 in the sense of a limit; Egypt (as the border of Palestine): - besieged places, defence, fortified. H4692 mâtsôr maw-tsore', From H6696; something hemming in, that is, (objectively) a mound (of besiegers), (abstractly) a siege, (figuratively) distress; or (subjectively) a fastness: - besieged, bulwark, defence, fenced, fortress, siege, strong (hold), tower.
So Mitzrayim is synonym with place of distress, stronghold, and a picture of the actual situation in the world, the modern day Mitzrayim or Egypt.
Exo 5:1 and afterwards Mosheh and Aharon went in and said to Pharaoh, “Thus said יהוה Elohim of Yisra’ĕl, ‘Let My people go, so that they keep a festival to Me in the wilderness.’ ” Exo 5:2 and Pharaoh said, “Who is יהוה, that I should obey His voice to let Yisra’ĕl go? I do not know יהוה, nor am I going to let Yisra’ĕl go.” Exo 5:3 and they said, “The Elohim of the Heḇrews has met with us. Please, let us go three days’ journey into the wilderness and slaughter to יהוה our Elohim, lest He fall upon us with pestilence or with the sword.” Exo 5:4 but the sovereign of Mitsrayim said to them, “Mosheh and Aharon, why do you take the people from their work? Get back to your burdens.” Exo 5:5 and Pharaoh said, “See, the people of the land are many now, and you make them cease from their burdens!” Exo 5:6 and the same day Pharaoh commanded the slave-drivers of the people and their foremen, saying, Exo 5:7 “You are no longer to give the people straw to make bricks as before. Let them go and gather straw for themselves. Exo 5:8 “And lay on them the required amount of bricks which they made before, do not diminish it. For they are idle, that is why they cry out, saying, ‘Let us go and slaughter to our Elohim.’ Exo 5:9 “Let more work be laid on the men, so that they labour in it, and not pay attention to words of falsehood.” Exo 5:10 and the slave-drivers of the people and their foremen went out and spoke to the people, saying, “Thus said Pharaoh, ‘I do not give you straw. Exo 5:11 ‘Go, take straw for yourselves, wherever you find it, for your work shall not be diminished.’ ” Exo 5:12 and the people were scattered in all the land of Mitsrayim – to gather stubble for straw. Exo 5:13 and the slave-drivers were hurrying them on, saying, “Complete your work, your daily amount, as when there was straw.” Exo 5:14 also the foremen of the children of Yisra’ĕl, whom Pharaoh’s slave-drivers had set over them, were beaten and were asked, “Why have you not completed your task in making bricks both yesterday and today, as before?”
Exo 5:15 and the foremen of the children of Yisra’ĕl came and cried out to Pharaoh, saying, “Why do you treat your servants this way? Exo 5:16 “There is no straw given to your servants, and they say to us, ‘Make bricks!’ And see, your servants are beaten, but your own people are at fault.” Exo 5:17 but he said, “You are idle! You are idle! That is why you say, ‘Let us go and slaughter to יהוה.’ Exo 5:18 “So now go, work. And straw is not given to you, but deliver the amount of bricks.” Exo 5:19 and the foremen of the children of Yisra’ĕl saw that they were in trouble after it was said, “You are not to diminish your daily amount of bricks.” Exo 5:20 and when they came out from Pharaoh, they met Mosheh and Aharon who stood there to meet them. Exo 5:21 and they said to them, “Let יהוה look on you and judge, because you have made us loathsome in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of his servants, to give a sword in their hand to kill us.” Exo 5:22 and Mosheh returned to יהוה and said, “יהוה, why have You done evil to this people? Why did You send me? Exo 5:23 “For ever since I came to Pharaoh to speak in Your Name, he has done evil to this people. And You have not delivered Your people at all.” Exo 6:1 then YHWH said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.
The Haftorah show that the prophet YirmeYahu; like Moshe was chosen from the womb of his mother. He also would become a sharp mouth to the children of Israel and will suffer because of his devotion and love to the Elohim of Abraham Itzhak and Ya’acov Yeshayahu was also a prophet called by Elohim, a man who got great revelation from the only true Elohim, to proclaim the glory of the mighty one of Israel, to reveal Messiah and his atoning work (YeshaYahu 53) but also to warn and to comfort Yehudah and Ephraim. The prophets were called of יהוה to warn, correct, instruct the people of Elohim to turn back from their evil ways in order to escape judgment. The love of our heavenly Father was always to warn our forefather of their evil doing. The time we are living now is almost finish, there is no excuse for those who do not turn back but keep going in their pernicious ways. When Judgment will come on this day the Torah will be what will come upon the head of each of us, either for good to those who follow Messiah or to destruction for those who have despised the truth.
Ephraim has been warned the House of Israel has now the possibility to find himself and acknowledge his foolishness, turning back from the Torah-less way to the truth embracing the faith of our ancestors who followed יהושע Messiah and never acknowledged “Jesus” the Torah-less!...............Yrmeyahu the Name means: “Yehowah hurls” or “Yehowah founds.” ISBE Hurl: to send whirling or to throw with violence יהוה send his prophet to warn his people and also to encourage them to choose the way of life. When reading we shall know that the north is often used to indicate judgment coming.
Yrmeyahu like Moshe thought that he was not able to do the job and יהוה convince him by "putting His Words in his mouth", from now on, like Moshe, Yrmeyahu become a recipient for יהוה's work. .....
The book of Acts:
Luke when writing the books of Acts, retraced the way of our ancestors saying that Elohim “turned and gave them up to worship the host of the heaven, as it has been written in the book of the Prophets” (Acts 7:39)
Sha’ul warned that because people do not love the truth, יהוה will send a great “delusion that they believe a lie” (2nd Tessal. 2:10-11)
Jer 1:1 The words of Yirmeyahu the son of Ḥilqiyahu, of the priests who were in Anathoth in the land of Binyamin, ..Jer 1:2 to whom the word of יהוה came in the days of Yoshiyahu son of Amon, sovereign of Yehuḏah, in the thirteenth year of his reign. Jer 1:3 And it came in the days of Yehoyaqim, son of Yoshiyahu, sovereign of Yehuḏah, until the end of the eleventh year of Tsiḏqiyahu, son of Yoshiyahu, sovereign of Yehuḏah, until the exile of Yerushalayim in the fifth month. Jer 1:4 Now the word of יהוה came to me, saying,
Jer 1:5 “Before I formed you in the belly I knew you, and before you came out of the womb I did set you apart – I appointed you a prophet to nations.” Jer 1:6 and said I, “Ah, Master יהוה! See, I do not know how to speak, for I am a youth.” Jer 1:7 and יהוה said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’ but go to all to whom I send you, and speak whatever I command you. Jer 1:8 “Do not fear their faces, for I am with you to deliver you,” declares יהוה. Jer 1:9 Then יהוה put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and יהוה said to me, “See, I have put My words in your mouth. Jer 1:10 “See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the reigns, to root out and to pull down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant.” Jer 1:11 and the word of יהוה came to me, saying, “What do you see, Yirmeyahu?” And I said, “I see a branch of an almond tree.” Jer 1:12 and יהוה said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over My word to do it.”
Jer 1:13 and the word of יהוה came to me a second time, saying, “What do you see?” And I said, “I see a boiling pot, and it is facing away from the north.” Jer 1:14 and יהוה said to me, “Out of the north evil is set loose on all the inhabitants of the land. Jer 1:15 “For look, I am calling all the clans of the reigns of the north,” declares יהוה. “And they shall come and each one set his throne at the entrance of the gates of Yerushalayim, against all its walls all around, and against all the cities of Yehuḏah. Jer 1:16 “And I shall pronounce My judgments against them concerning all their evil, because they have forsaken Me, burned incense to other mighty ones, and bowed themselves to the works of their own hands. Jer 1:17 “Now, gird up your loins and arise, and speak to them all that I command you. Do not break down before their faces, lest I break you before them. Jer 1:18 “For look, I have made you this day a walled city and an iron column, and bronze walls against all the land, against the sovereigns of Yehuḏah, against her heads, against her priests, and against the people of the land. Jer 1:19 “And they shall fight against you, but not prevail against you. For I am with you,” declares יהוה, “to deliver you.” Jer 2:1 and the word of יה יהוה וה came to me, saying,
Jer 2:2 “Go, and you shall cry in the hearing of Yerushalayim, saying, ‘Thus said יהוה, “I remember you, the kindness of your youth, the love of your bridehood, when you went after Me in the wilderness, in a land that was not sown. Jer 2:3 “Yisra’ĕl was set-apart to יהוה, the first-fruits of His increase. All who ate of it became guilty – evil came upon them,” declares יהוה.’ ”
Isa 27:6 Those who come He causes to take root in Yaʽaqoḇ, Yisra’ĕl shall blossom and bud. And they shall fill the face of the world with fruit. Isa 27:7 Has He smitten him as He smote those who were smiting him? Or were they slain as those they had slaughtered? Isa 27:8 In measure, by sending her away, You contended with her. He shall take away by His rough wind in the day of the east wind. Isa 27:9 Therefore by this the crookedness of Yaʽaqoḇ is covered. And this is all the fruit of taking away his sin: when he makes all the stones of the altar like chalkstones that are beaten to dust – Ashĕrim and sun-pillars rise no more.
Isa 27:10 for the city of defence is lonely, a home forsaken and left like a wilderness – there the calf feeds, and there it lies down, and shall consume its branches. Isa 27:11 when its twigs are dry, they are broken off, women come and set them on fire. For it is a people of no understanding, therefore He who made them has no compassion on them, and He who formed them shows them no favour. Isa 27:12 and in that day it shall be that יהוה threshes, from the channel of the River to the wadi of Mitsrayim. And you shall be gathered one by one1, O children of Yisra’ĕl. Footnote: 1Jer. 3:14-15. Isa 27:13 and in that day it shall be that a great horn is blown, and those who were perishing in the land of Ashshur and the outcasts in the land of Mitsrayim shall come, and shall worship יהוה on the set-apart mountain, in Yerushalayim.
Isa 28:1 Woe to the proud crown of the drunkards of Ephrayim, and to the fading flower of its splendid comeliness that is on the head of the fertile valley, to those who are overcome with wine! Isa 28:2 See, יהוה has one who is mighty and strong, like a downpour of hail and a destroying storm, like a flood of mighty waters overflowing, who casts down to the earth with the hand. Isa 28:3 the proud crown of the drunkards of Ephrayim, is trampled under foot; Isa 28:4 and the fading flower of its splendid comeliness that is on the head of the fertile valley, like the first fruit before the summer, which, when one sees it, he eats it up while it is still in his hand. Isa 28:5 in that day יהוה of hosts is for a crown of splendour and a head-dress of comeliness to the remnant of His people, Isa 28:6 and a spirit of right-ruling to him who sits in right-ruling, and strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate. Isa 28:7 and these too have gone astray through wine, and through strong drink wandered about. Priest and prophet have gone astray through strong drink, they are swallowed up by wine, they wander about through strong drink, they go astray in vision, they stumble in right-ruling. Isa 28:8 for all tables shall be covered with vomit, no place without filth. Isa 28:9 whom would He teach knowledge? And whom would He make to understand the message? Those weaned from milk, those taken from the breasts! (read what Sha'ul write:
Heb 5:12 for when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of יהוה; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
Heb 5:13 for every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
Isa 28:10 for it is: command upon command, command upon command, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little. Isa 28:11 for with a jabbering lip and a foreign tongue He speaks to this people,
Isa 28:12 to whom He said, “This is the rest, give rest to the weary,” and, “This is the refreshing.” But they would not hear. Isa 28:13 but the Word of יהוה was to them, “Command upon command, command upon command, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little,” so that they go and shall stumble backward, and be broken and snared and taken captive. Isa 29:22 Therefore thus said יהוה, who ransomed Aḇraham, concerning the house of Yaʽaqoḇ, “Yaʽaqoḇ is no longer put to shame, no longer does his face grow pale. Isa 29:23 “For when he sees his children, the work of My hands, in his midst, they shall set apart My Name, and set apart the Set-apart One of Yaʽaqoḇ, and fear the Elohim of Yisra’ĕl.
Act 7:17 “But as the time of the promise drew near which Elohim had sworn to Aḇraham, the people increased and multiplied in Mitsrayim .Act 7:18 until another sovereign arose who did not know Yosĕph.
Act 7:19 “Having dealt treacherously with our race, this one mistreated our fathers, making them expose their babies, so that they should not live. Act 7:20 “At that time Mosheh was born, and he was well-pleasing to Elohim. And he was reared three months in the house of his father. Act 7:21 “But when he was exposed, the daughter of Pharaoh took him up and reared him as her own son. Act 7:22 “And Mosheh was instructed in all the wisdom of the Mitsrites, and was mighty in words and works. Act 7:23 “And when he was forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brothers, the children of Yisra’ĕl. Act 7:24 “And seeing one of them being wronged, he defended and revenged him who was oppressed, smiting the Mitsrite.
Act 7:25 “And he thought that his brothers would have understood that Elohim would give deliverance to them by his hand, but they did not understand. Act 7:26 “And the next day he appeared to two of them as they were fighting, and urged them to peace, saying, ‘Men, you are brothers, why do you wrong one another?’
Act 7:27 “But he who was wronging his neighbour pushed him away, saying, ‘Who made you a ruler and a judge over us? Act 7:28 ‘Do you wish to kill me as you killed the Mitsrite yesterday?’ Act 7:29 “And at this saying, Mosheh fled and became a sojourner in the

Act 7:30 “And after forty years were completed, a Messenger of יהוה appeared to him in a flame of fire in a bush, in the wilderness of
Sinai. Act 7:31 “And Mosheh, seeing it,
marvelled at the sight, and coming near to look, the voice of יהוה came to him, Act 7:32 saying, ‘I am the Elohim of your
fathers, the Elohim of Aḇraham and the Elohim of Yitsḥaq and the Elohim of
Yaʽaqoḇ.’ And Mosheh trembled and did not have the courage to look. Act 7:33 ‘But יהוה said to him, “Take your sandals
off your feet, for the place where you stand is set-apart ground. Act 7:34 “I have certainly seen the evil
treatment of my people who are in Mitsrayim, and I have heard their groaning
and have come down to deliver them. And now come, let Me send you to
Mitsrayim.” ’ Act 7:35 “This Mosheh whom they had
refused, saying, ‘Who made you a ruler and a judge?’ – this one Elohim sent to

the bush. Act 7:36 “This one led them out, after he had done wonders and
signs in the land of Mitsrayim, and in the Red Sea,
and in the wilderness forty years. Act 7:37 “This is the Mosheh who said to
the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘יהוה your Elohim shall raise up for you a Prophet like me from
your brothers. Him you shall hear.’ Act 7:38 “This is he who was in the
assembly in the wilderness with the Messenger who spoke to him on Mount Sinai, and with our fathers, who received the living

become of him.’ Act 7:41 “And they made a calf in those
days, and brought an offering to the idol, and were rejoicing in the works of
their own hands. Act 7:42 “So Elohim turned and gave them
up to worship the host of the heaven, as it has been written in the book of the
Prophets, ‘Did you bring slaughtered beasts and offerings unto Me during forty
years in the wilderness, O house of Yisra’ĕl? Act 7:43 ‘And you took up the tent of
