Torah Portion NASSO – Bamidbar (Numbers) 4:21-7:89
And then they will see ‘the Son of Man coming in clouds’ with great power and glory. Mark 13:26 TLV
Shabbat shalom, dearly beloved!
This Shavuot marked the end and the beginning of an Era.
“Sweet Christian Religion” is divorced from the Great Power of a Jewish Messiah: it is steeped in Humanism, New Age, self-centeredness, and the tree of knowledge. It’s a religion that, up until the recent past, murdered and hated Jews, at worst – and is powerless against sin and Satan, at best.
This is the Divinely-Appointed Time to return to the Power of the Gospel made in Zion – only then will we have the Power to walk holy and bring Heaven down to earth.
Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah King who is also called The Lion of Judah, spoke these words to the religious leaders of His day, those that opposed him and accused him of heresy and of working with the power of Satan:
But if I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the Kingdom of God has come upon you! Luke 11:20 CJB
Moses did not dare to deliver our people from Egypt without the Power of His Spirit, the very “Finger of God”.
When the magicians attempted the same with their secret arts to bring forth gnats, they could not. There were gnats on men and animals. So the magicians said to Pharaoh, “This is the finger of God.” But Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he did not listen to them—just as Adonai had said. Exodus 8:14-15 TLV
The Finger of God is more powerful than any magic, witchcraft, or satanism. It is the same Finger that wrote the Torah on Mount Sinai,
When He had finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, He gave the two tablets of the Testimony to Moses—tablets of stone, written by the finger of God. Exodus 31:18 TLV
The same Finger wrote the judgment on the wall regarding the Kingdom of Persia, while they were feasting on wine using the holy gold vessels from the looted Jerusalem Temple. They drank the wine and praised their money gods – their jobs, their careers, their stocks, and their gold.
When Belshazzar tasted the wine, he issued an order to bring in the gold and silver vessels that Nebuchadnezzar his father had taken out of the Temple in Jerusalem, so that the king and his nobles, his consorts and his concubines could drink from them. So they brought the gold vessels that were taken out of the Temple of the House of God in Jerusalem, and the king and his nobles, consorts and concubines drank from them. They drank the wine and praised the gods made of gold and silver, bronze, iron, wood and stone. At that very moment, the fingers of a human hand emerged and wrote on the plaster of the wall of the king’s palace opposite the lampstand, so that the king could see the back of the hand that was writing. The color drained from the king’s face, his thoughts alarmed him, his hips gave way and his knees began knocking together. Daniel 5:2-6 TLV
This same Finger of God sets people free from demons, does miracles, empowers us to obey His Commandments, or it judges humans for idolatry; same Finger, same Power.
It was ten days before Shavuot when Yeshua ascended to Heaven after His Resurrection and left His Jewish disciples with the following instructions:
After his death he showed himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. During a period of forty days they saw him, and he spoke with them about the Kingdom of God. At one of these gatherings, he instructed them not to leave Yerushalayim but to wait for “what the Father promised, which you heard about from me. For Yochanan used to immerse people in water; but in a few days, you will be immersed in the Ruach HaKodesh!” Acts of Emissaries of Yeshua (Acts) 1:3-5 CJB
Though they had been instructed by the Risen Lord about the power and the functioning of the Kingdom, they should do nothing before they received the enabling Power from on High. Countless Christians and Messianics have been trying (with good intentions) to evangelize the world in their own strength without the Divine Power. They have harnessed all kinds of knowledge, but have no power. The Finger of Yah, which casts out devils and heals the sick, which writes the Torah in our hearts and empowers us to walk holy, can barely be seen today. It has been exchanged for motivational speaking, professionalism, and knowledge. Our churches are full of religious, sinful people that have no power to cast out demons, heal the sick, command the elements of nature or walk Holy in the fear of YHVH.
Paul said to Timothy that powerlessness and sinfulness in the religious crowd would stem from loving themselves, their lives, and their money above God – even though they are still “church goers”.
YHVH said to Daniel that in the End Times, knowledge would increase. The Scriptures speak of a time when people will be able to Google anything, but yet will remain powerless.
“But you, Dani’el, keep these words secret, and seal up the book until the time of the end. Many will rush here and there as knowledge increases.” Dani’el 12:4 CJB
The Apostle Paul continues this conversation about 600 years later from Daniel’s time, after Messiah had come:
You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that! 2 Timothy 3:1-5 NLT
During this COVID-19 plague, this powerlessness is obvious. Mighty, self-centered man is not able to overcome a minuscule virus than can barely be seen in a digital microscope. No one has really seen the virus with their naked eyes, yet billions of inhabitants on this planet are afraid of it – entire nations have been paralyzed because of it. They have not believed in the Power of the One that created the virus, who can wipe out mankind in a second, but yet chose to save it and redeem it instead.
Adonai made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of disaster. Adonai detests all those with proud hearts; be assured that they will not go unpunished. Mishlei (Proverbs) 16:4-5 CJB
Yet those that fear Him and are filled with His Power will have the Divine Power protect them from all plagues and shakings when He judges the proud that oppose Him and the religious hypocrites that, by denying His power, continue in their sin and wickedness.
It is I who created the craftsman who blows on the coals and forges weapons suited to their purpose; I also created the destroyer to work havoc. No weapon made will prevail against you. In court you will refute every accusation. The servants of Adonai inherit all this; the reward for their righteousness is from me,” says Adonai. Yesha ‘yahu (Isaiah) 54:16-17 CJB
Beware of those who tell you that God’s laws are done away, and that grace means you can stay sinful and He understands. That is the “form of godliness that denies the Power” of His Spirit to keep us Holy and full of Glory. His Spirit gives us New Life, writes the Torah in our hearts and empowers us to walk holy, heal the sick and cast out devils!
many false prophets will appear and fool many people; and many people’s love will grow cold because of increased distance from Torah (lawlessness). But whoever holds out till the end will be delivered. And this Good News about the Kingdom will be announced throughout the whole world as a witness to all the Goyim. It is then that the end will come. Mattityahu (Matthew) 24:11-14 CJB
Before Yeshua left us, He told His Jewish disciples how He wanted them to advance His Kingdom’s Good News – the original Gospel made in Zion. It was not Christianity then, beloveds, and it is not Christianity now. It is not religion: it is His Torah and Spirit inside of humans that manifest His Glory.
Later, Yeshua appeared to the Eleven as they were eating, and he reproached them for their lack of faith, trust and their spiritual insensitivity in not having believed those who had seen him after he had risen. Then he said to them, “As you go throughout the world, proclaim the Good News to all creation. Whoever believes, trusts and is immersed will be saved; whoever does not trust will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who do trust: in my name they will drive out demons, speak with new tongues, not be injured if they handle snakes or drink poison, and heal the sick by laying hands on them.” So then, after he had spoken to them, the Lord Yeshua was taken up into heaven and sat at the right hand of God. And they went out and proclaimed everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the message by the accompanying signs. Mark 16:14-20 CJB
All trusting believers are supposed to speak the good news with these accompanying signs. But too many are walking sin-ridden, compromised with Satan because of the love of self and the love of money, yet still consider themselves Christian or Messianic – embracing a form of religion, with Torahlessness and denying the Power of the Spirit. Human devices, human programs and agendas have been exchanged for His supernatural Power. Paul said to Timothy, “stay away” from those people – they are contagious! They are more contagious than COVID-19; their unbelief, hypocrisy, sinfulness, self-centeredness, powerlessness, and immorality dressed in a religious cloak is contagious. Stay away! Social distancing!
We remember 2000 years ago (at this same time of year that, 2000 years earlier, the Finger of Yah had written the commandments in tablets of stone): that same Finger came down to turn a Jewish group of people into human torches – Vessels of Fire (Kad Esh) – full of His Living Word.
The festival of Shavu‘ot arrived, and the believers all gathered together in one place. Suddenly there came a sound from the sky like the roar of a violent wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then they saw what looked like tongues of fire, which separated and came to rest on each one of them. They were all filled with the Ruach HaKodesh and began to talk in different languages, as the Spirit enabled them to speak. Acts of Emissaries of Yeshua (Acts) 2:1-4 CJB
Let us pray:
“Do it again Abba, as we deny the form of godliness, all sinfulness, self-centeredness, love of money, hypocrisy, and immorality. We ask you to turn us into Living Torches, Vessels of Fire (Kad-Esh) again that will turn this world right side up, in Yeshua’s name. Wake us up to operate in the Power of the Finger of Yah, lest Your Finger writes only words of judgment on the walls of all churches, denominations, governments, and nations. Amen”
But if we insist on ignoring His Power to save, heal, and deliver, we will certainly experience His Power to destroy. This is a wake-up call to return to the One that has ALL THE POWER.
Many of those sleeping in the dust of the earth will awaken, some to everlasting life and some to everlasting shame and abhorrence. But those who can discern will shine like the brightness of heaven’s dome, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever. Dani’el (Dan) 12:2-3 CJB
A Blessed New Era to all the Vessels of Fire and Shining Stars!
