Torah Portion SH’MIN I – Vayikra (Leviticus) 9:1-11:47
Kill off old men, young men and girls, little children and women. But touch no one who has the mark. Begin at My Sanctuary.” Then they began with the elders who were before the House. Ezekiel 9:6 TLV
Shabbat shalom dearly beloved,
Most of the critical things in life are invisible. All of humanity will bear one or another invisible mark that will determine all your future life on earth and for eternity. Invisible things are the most powerful things, and yet because of their “invisibility,” they are taken lightly.
For the Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life. Job 33:4 NLT
Take, for example, the air: It is invisible – you cannot see “air,” but you know it’s there – and when you cannot breathe, it is most distressful. And what about time? You cannot see time, yet you know that it exists and you are ruled by it. Many during the COVID-19 pandemic became aware of how grateful we should be that we can breathe and that we have more time left to live. Air and time are given for free by the Creator of Life, and yet it is taken for granted, with very few on the planet thanking Him daily for these two commodities.
He cuts off the breath of princes. The kings of earth are in awe of Him. Psalm 76:13 TLV
Since we talked about COVID-19, this is yet another thing we cannot see with the naked eye. How many of you have actually seen a “virus” or a Corona Virus? A few scientists with potent digital microscopes can see it, and we all believe their testimony without demanding to see it ourselves. And what about the God that created all things? How many believe in His existence based on evidence clearly seen in the harmony of nature?; Or on the testimony of those who know Him personally?
But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness. They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. Romans 1:18-20
So many agnostics, atheists, humanists, existentialists, and all kinds of philosophers have been trying to prove that the Creator does not exist, but to no avail. No one on the planet can prove that He does not exist. But every flower, tree, mountain, animal, cells in our body, and even dangerous things like COVID-19 speak of Him and His existence. The very air we breathe speaks of Him – just ask those that have died of asphyxia due to COVID-19. When people cannot breathe, they panic.
But if you turn away from them, they panic. When you take away their breath,
they die and turn again to dust. When you give them your breath, life is created,
and you renew the face of the earth. Psalm 104:29-30 NLT
Air is invisible, and yet the absence of the air that we cannot see causes people panic, asphyxia, and death.
The ignorance of the Messiah is killing billions that are dying eternally without Him!
And what about the existence of a Savior sent by the Creator Himself, who is the God of Israel? 500 Jews saw Him rising from the dead. His body was never found; the tomb lies empty in Jerusalem. Yet, many throughout the years have tried to discredit His existence, though no one thus far has succeeded.
There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil. John 3:18-19
What Mark do You Bear?
“But this is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel after those days,” says the Lord. “I will put my instructions deep within them, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. Jeremiah 31:32
Right now, many people have an unseen mark in their foreheads and hands. You cannot see that mark, but it is seen by people (just like those scientists with their potent microscopes) who can see with their spirits. The world is being divided between one type of mark and another type of mark. This thing is not a futuristic prophecy; this is happening right now as I write. People are being marked every day. The mark they carry will determine their lives on earth as well as throughout a very, very long eternity.
And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. Deuteronomy 6:6-9 NLT
The Bible mentions two types of marks:
- The Mark of YHVH (The Creator and the God of Israel) – (Deuteronomy 6:6-9, Jeremiah 31:31-34, Ezekiel 9:4, Revelation 9:4) and
- The Mark of the Beast (Satan incarnate) – (Revelation 13:17, 14:11, 16:2, 19:20)
The Angels of Yah (God) are in their last stages of marking those who belong to Him and to His Jewish Son, the Messiah Yeshua, who many have mistakenly called Jesus Christ. He is not a Roman Christ; He is a Jewish Messiah and Savior, and He is the Word of Elohim manifested in human form 2,000 years ago. He did not bring the religion of Christianity or any other, but instead, He brought the Father in Heaven, the Creator near to us.
So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son. John 1:14
He instituted the New Covenant in His blood as promised to the people of Israel through the Prophet Jeremiah, about 500 years before He came.
Behold, days are coming” —it is a declaration of Adonai—“when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah—Jeremiah 31:30 (31) TLV
Whoever receives this Jewish Messiah and surrenders his life to Him will pass from eternal death to an abundance of life. The fruit of this will be the Torah (Instructions) of the Almighty will be written in their hearts and minds, and they will live a righteous and holy life. These will bear His Mark, and they will be passed over by the plagues and judgments prepared since the world began to come upon those who do not have His Mark or His Seal.
Then from the smoke came locusts upon the earth, and power was given to them like the scorpions have power over the earth. They were told to do no harm to the grass of the earth or any green plant or any tree, but only the people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. Revelation 9:3,4
Many Christians, Jews, Muslims, Atheists, and people of all kinds of religions will not bear His Mark. They think they can be saved by “going to Church, Synagogue, or a Mosque” – but none of these things can save anyone. Only Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah, can save you when you put your trust in Him.
Yeshua said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life! No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6 TLV
The Book of Revelation is full of prophecies of judgment. There is one in particular that speaks of locusts, for example, who wear “golden crowns.” The COVID-19 is called Coronavirus, which means “crown” in Spanish. Could this be a warning from the King of the Universe? Can something worse come to those who do not repent of their unbelief, skepticism, and evil ways?
They were told not to kill them but to torture them for five months with pain like the pain of a scorpion sting. In those days people will seek death but will not find it. They will long to die, but death will flee from them! The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. They had what looked like gold crowns on their heads, and their faces looked like human faces. Revelation 9:5-7 NLT
Complete and full surrender is required to the Creator of the Universe, who is the God of Israel and to the Messiah-Savior He sent. He is a Jew, and He is the only one that is worthy to judge the world. By One Jew, the world gets saved, and by One Jew, the world gets judged.
There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. John 3:18 NLT
God’s Only Son is a Jewish Lion, a Jewish Messiah; His eternal Covenant Name is Yeshua, and He is the only one that can open the Seals of Judgment!
But one of the twenty-four elders said to me, “Stop weeping! Look, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the heir to David’s throne, has won the victory. He is worthy to open the scroll and its seven seals. Revelation 5:5 NLT
Those who do not have His Mark will carry another mark that the Bible calls the Mark of the Beast. It is for those that, instead of surrendering and trusting in a God they cannot see, have surrendered to a one-world Global Order that will demand its mark upon you to buy, sell, do business, and live your life the way you want to live.
And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name. Revelation 13:17 NLT
Those that will take this mark will not ever be able to be saved from the wrath of God or Eternal Judgment. Think twice: Your love for your own life and aspirations, your comfort, even religion and self -preservation (when it replaces your devotion to the King of the Universe) can be very costly.
So the first angel left the Temple and poured out his bowl on the earth, and horrible, malignant sores broke out on everyone who had the mark of the beast and who worshiped his statue. Revelation 16:2
The smoke of their torment will rise forever and ever, and they will have no relief day or night, for they have worshiped the beast and his statue and have accepted the mark of his name.” Revelation 14:11
What Mark are You Ready for?
So, what could happen if you chose to believe in a Creator-God-Elohim that you cannot see and in His Son a Savior-Messiah you have not seen? What would happen if you would humble your heart to breathe faith for once instead of skepticism, and you would open your heart in humility to ask Him to come into your life and save you? Save you from Corona Virus and from all plagues, including bees that could sting you. But most importantly, keep you from eternal judgment. For though you may choose skepticism (because you do not “see Him” with your naked eyes), one day, you will “see Him,” but it will be too late, as you will be standing in front of His Throne of Judgment.
COVID-19 will come and go, other plagues and economic recessions will come and go. Global warming will come and go, but the Global warning is now here:
What Mark are You Ready to Take?
In Hebrew, the word for “mark” is ot, which means “a letter.” This indicates the Torah-Commandments of the Living God written in your heart and minds.
His ot – His Mark and Seal – or the Mark of the Beast: You choose, but do not “take your time” for time as we know it is up! The free air is fast running out. Everyone on this planet is faced with a choice: Which Mark are you ready for?
Take His Mark before it’s too late
Creator of the Universe, Father in Heaven, God of Israel, Father of the Jewish Messiah-Yeshua (whom many call Jesus). (Note: Yeshua is His original and eternal name before it was transliterated and Romanized, and it means salvation, healing, and deliverance). I ask for Your Divine Pardon for disbelieving You, rejecting You, and turning my back on You. Please forgive me for mocking You in any way, for taking You lightly, for being prideful and arrogant against You, for offending You, for hating Israel or the Jewish people, for breaking Your Commandments, for refusing to submit to You and Your ways. For rejecting the Great Salvation that you sent 2,000 years ago into Israel and through Israel for the whole world in the person of Your Only Begotten Son, Yeshua. I realize that You have given me free air and free time and that both are running out for all of humankind and for me personally.
I choose to believe, put my trust and devotion in You. I choose to be thoroughly marked by You, rejecting all other “markings, tattoos, signs, chips” that are not from you. Please send Your Angel and Your Holy Spirit to Mark me with Your Mark, write Your Commandments and instructions in my heart and mind and help me to do them by the power of Your Holy Spirit.
I cannot see Your Spirit, but I choose to believe that just like the Air, He is real. Fill me with Your Spirit, presence, and power. Save me, deliver me, wash me clean, and help me cleanse my life from all that disgusts You. Do this so that I may serve You, worship You, devote myself to You, and Your divine plan for my life forever. Fill me so that I may tell others to do the same and rescue many from the Mark of the Beast and eternal judgment. I fully realize that the only way You can mark me and protect me from the Mark of the Beast is by putting my trust in the shed blood of Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah who died in my stead to pay for all of my sin, iniquity, and crimes against You and anyone else. I realize that only through Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah I receive forgiveness of sins, healing, deliverance, and eternal life. I thank you for hearing this my prayer, which I have prayed from the bottom of my heart. In Yeshua’s Mighty Name. Amen
