Torah Portion VAYESHEV – Beresheet (Genesis) 37:1-40:23
In Preparation for Hanukkah, The Feast of Dedication
Justice, justice you must pursue, so that you may live and possess the land that Adonai your God is giving you. Deuteronomy 16:20 TLV
Shabbat Shalom, dearly beloveds!
This is a continuation from Justice or Judgment #3 where I expounded about the injustice of Vain Hatred. Today we will continue the injustice of Sexual Immorality.
What incurs the judgment of YHVH in both individuals and nations?
In one word it’s INJUSTICE.
INJUSTICE defined from the Merriam Webster Dictionary:
INJUSTICE, INJURY, WRONG, and GRIEVANCE mean “an act that inflicts undeserved hurt.”
- INJUSTICE applies to any act that involves unfairness to another or violation of one’s rights.
- The injustices suffered by the lower classes INJURY applies, in law, specifically to an injustice for which one may sue to obtain compensation.
- Libel constitutes a legal injury WRONG, and also applies in law to any act punishable according to the criminal code; it may apply more generally to any flagrant injustice.
- Determined to right society’s wrongs, GRIEVANCE applies to a circumstance or condition that constitutes an injustice to the sufferer and gives just ground for complaint.
We will review together in this series of Shabbat Letters the most grievous sins of injustice in the eyes of YHVH:
- VAIN HATRED
- SEXUAL IMMORALITY
- INNOCENT BLOOD
Or don’t you know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Don’t be deceived! The sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, those who practice homosexuality, thieves, the greedy, drunkards, slanderers, swindlers—none of these will inherit the kingdom of God. That is what some of you were—but you were washed, you were made holy, you were set right in the name of the Lord Yeshua the Messiah and by the Ruach of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 TLV
Sexual immorality is practicing any sexual act outside of a lawful marriage relationship of one man and one woman; this includes indulging in sexual fantasy like pornography and masturbation; it includes adultery, fornication, and the entire gambit of the LGBTQ agenda. Those who insist on staying immoral according to Biblical standards will not inherit the Kingdom of Heaven. They can only expect eternal destruction even if they pray and go to Church or synagogue every day. We are living in a society that has been wickedly conditioned to accept sexual immorality as good and normal, but there is nothing normal about it, and evil spirits are always involved in immoral sexual relationships.
One Man for One Woman, this is the Original Creational Plan
God created humankind in His image, in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them. God blessed them and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, fill the land, and conquer it. Rule over the fish of the sea, the flying creatures of the sky, and over every animal that crawls on the land.” Genesis 1:27,28 TLV
Adonai Elohim built the rib, which He had taken from the man, into a woman. Then He brought her to the man. Then the man said, “this one, at last, is bone of my bones and flesh from my flesh. This one is called woman, for from man was taken this one.”This is why a man leaves his father and his mother and clings to his wife; and they become one flesh. Genesis 2:22-24 TLV
C.S. Lewis, many years ago in his book Mere Christianity, described our contemporary struggle with human sexuality in the following words:
The inventor of the human machine was telling us that its two halves, the male and the female, were made to be combined together in pairs, not simply on the sexual level, but totally combined. The monstrosity of sexual intercourse outside marriage is that those who indulge in it are trying to isolate one kind of union (the sexual) from all the other kinds of union which was intended to go along with it and make up the total union. The Christian attitude does not mean that there is anything wrong about sexual pleasure, any more than about the pleasure of eating. It means that you must not isolate that pleasure and try to get it by itself, any more than you ought to try to get the pleasures of taste without swallowing and digesting, by chewing things and spitting them out again(Like in the case of Bulimia for example. ABD)
Fornication and Adultery
So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. 2 Timothy 2:22 TLV
Today, it has become totally acceptable to go to Church or be somehow religious and live together without marriage. It is excused because people want to get to “know each other” before they tie the knot. However, the Bible is very clear that “knowing each other,” Hebrew yada, which means having intimate sexual relations, is only sanctioned by the Creator within a lawful marriage between ONE man and ONE woman. Everything else falls in the category of sexual immorality. Yeshua goes on to expound this by addressing not only the act of adultery but even the thoughts about it.
You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I tell you that everyone who looks upon a woman to lust after her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Matthew 5:27,28 TLV
Therefore, masturbation and pornography that indulges in the act of sex both in action and in though using your mind and sexual fantasies with men and women that are not your wife or husband is regarded as sexual immorality all the same and incurs in judgment.
In order to stop all arguments and psychological excuses of “why” a person is sexually immoral, Yeshua proceeds in the same chapter to say in a sharp and poignant way,
And if your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away! It is better for you that one part of your body should be destroyed, than that your whole body be thrown into Gehenna. And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away! It is better for you that one part of your body should be destroyed, than that your whole body go into Gehenna (hell). Matthew 5:29-30 TLV
He was saying, “enough with philosophy and psychology, just STOP SINNING!
These words are not popular today, and very seldom does a pastor or a parent confront their flock or their children with sexual immorality. Most pastors and parents instead passively agree with their sin and often allow the sexual immorality to be performed under the roof or the home. That is an abomination! Some parents say: “I prefer that my son and his girlfriend are here than roaming the streets or cheap hotels.” That is seriously wrong thinking, and in fact, you have become an accomplice to a crime by accommodating that which YHVH hates under your roof. I have had to tackle this in my own family. My children know that I love them, but I will not put up with their sin under my roof. My team knows this too, and cost what may, whoever decides to lend their mind or body to sexual immorality will not be welcomed and will not be tolerated. I will offer every remedy YHVH has given us, such as repentance, prayer, deliverance, and inner healing, but those that profess to be Children of God must choose His way “or the highway” as we say. It is as simple as that beloveds. Yeshua said, if your eye, or your hand, or any part of your body causes you to sin, “cut it off,” that means be ruthless with your sin nature and resist the devil at every turn, then he will flee from you. The Word is clear that our response to such great salvation and forgiveness of sins is to love YHVH with our whole being; this includes our thoughts and our body!
Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is oneLove Adonai your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These words, which I am commanding you today, are to be on your heart. You are to teach them diligently to your children, and speak of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down and when you rise up. Bind them as a sign on your hand, they are to be as frontlets between your eyes, and write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. Deuteronomy 6:4-7 TLV
Both in the Old and the New Covenant, we are warned that indulging in any sexual immorality, including idolatry, adultery, fornication, homosexuality, lesbianism, and bestiality (sex with animals), incurs Yah’s judgment and brings death and destruction!
But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death. Revelation 21:8 ESV
‘Cursed is the one who lies with any kind of animal.’ Then all the people are to say, ‘Amen.’ Deuteronomy 27:21 TLV
If a man lies with an animal, he shall surely be put to death, and you are to kill the animal. If a woman approaches any animal, and lies down with it, you are to kill the woman and the animal. They shall surely be put to death, and their blood shall be on them. Leviticus 20:15-16 TLV
“But whoever causes one of these little ones who trust in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck and to be sunk in the depth of the sea! Woe to the world because of snares! For snares must come, but woe to that man through whom the snare comes! Matthew 18:6-7 TLV
We must not indulge in sexual immorality as some of them did, and twenty-three thousand fell in a single day. 1 Corinthians 10:8
One of the most disgusting sexual immoralities is those committed against defenseless children, this is perversion and pedophilia. This hideous crime continues even under the cloak of religion as recent scandals in the Catholic Church reveal.
Widespread public shock followed the recent release of the Pennsylvania grand jury report that identified more than 1,000 child victims of clergy sexual abuse. In fact, as I know through my research, the Vatican and its American bishops have known about the problem of priestly pedophilia since at least the 1950s. And the Church has consistently silenced would-be whistleblowers from within its own ranks. https://theconversation.com/the-catholic-churchs-grim-history-of-ignoring-priestly-pedophilia-and-silencing-would-be-whistleblowers-102387
One American priest said that pedophilia does not “kill anybody” as compared to abortion, for example. Do not be deceived; sexual abuse, harassment, and intercourse with a minor kills their soul and self-dignity, some of those poor children never recover. YHVH will definitely judge those who touch children wrongly and wickedly, especially if they are priests and do so under religion’s cloak.
They cast lots for My people, traded a boy for a prostitute, and sold a girl for wine, which they drank. Joel 4:3 TLV
Homosexuality, lesbianism, and all the rest
You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination. Leviticus 18:22
for even though they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God or give Him thanks. Instead, their thinking became futile, and their senseless hearts were made dark. Claiming to be wise, they became fools. They exchanged the glory of the immortal God for an image in the form of mortal man and birds and four-footed beasts and creeping things. Therefore God gave them over in the evil desires of their hearts to impurity, to dishonor their bodies with one another. They traded the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creation rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them up to shameful passions. Even their women exchanged natural relations for what is against nature. Likewise the men abandoned natural relations with women and were burning with passion toward one another—men committing shameful acts with other men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. Romans 1:21-27 TLV
Do not believe for a moment that people are born homosexuals, lesbians, or transvestites; they are not! Elohim the Creator made man be male and woman to be female and nothing in between. There are no exceptions! However, evils spirits that often run in families make people believe those lies. It has gone so far as to allow children to change their sex if they so desire without their parents’ consent! Those sex-changing surgeries are also a lie; a person cannot really change their sex; they are plastic surgeries. A man born with a penis cannot have a vagina or vice versa; neither can they reproduce. This is an afront to the Creator of Life Himself, and it is an uttermost rebellion to Him and His ways. Societies that have accepted the LGBTQ agenda, pride parades, and same sex marriages have put themselves in a place of judgment. Is it therefore surprising that COVID-19 is plaguing the world together with the manipulation from the globalists, those in Silicon Valley and the government of the shadows, to control the population? People are losing their human rights in the name of health and their freedom because they have used their freedom for sexual immorality, among other sins.
“Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food”—and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Messiah? Shall I then take the members of Messiah and make them members of a prostitute? Never! Or do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, “The two will become one flesh.” But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Ruach HaKodesh within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own,for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:13-20 TLV
Dear Heavenly Father, I repent in dust and ashes for all sexual immorality in my life. I reject it and renounce it, including immoral and lustful thoughts. I ruthlessly break the power of all evil spirits of lust, sexual immorality, and perversion in my life, and I declare that I am a blood-bought child of Yah (God), full of His Spirit of Holiness to walk in purity in Yeshua’s mighty Name. I will fill my thoughts and heart with His Word and with His Holy Spirit. I will not compromise with Satan and sin any longer! Yah’s grace is sufficient for me. Amen.
