Torah Portion LECH LECHA – Bereshet (Genesis) 12:1–17:27
“And then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on His head. They put a staff in His right hand and knelt in front of Him and mocked Him. ‘Hail, king of the Jews!’ they said.” Matthew 27:29 NIV
Shabbat shalom, dearly beloved!
The scorpion of the mind is the term I use for all mental and emotional sicknesses and biochemical imbalances.
The crown of thorns that the Messiah Yeshua was forced to wear is for the total healing of all mental diseases.
The pride against God, rebellion, the idolatry to mammon (money, position, and possessions), the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, the pride of life cause mental disease.
Yeshua on the cross is like the snake on the pole that Moses lifted up in the desert. Looking to Him causes healing.
“Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes may have eternal life in Him.” John 3:14-15 NIV
The people of Israel were bitten by the snakes in the desert because they lusted. Yeshua paid the price for that sin, and instead of judgment represented by the snake, He became healing and salvation if they looked upon the lifted up snake if we look upon the cross.
They spoke against God and against Moses and said, “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the desert? There is no bread! There is no water! And we detest this miserable food!” Then YHVH sent venomous snakes among them; they bit the people and many Israelites died. Numbers 21:5-6 NIV
Pride causes murmuring, complaining, and rebellion against Elohim-God!
The people came to Moses and said, “We sinned when we spoke against YHVH against you. Pray that YHVH will take the snakes away from us.” So Moses prayed for the people. Numbers 21:7 NIV
Repentance releases mercy!
YHVH said to Moses, “Make a snake and put it up on a pole; anyone who is bitten can look at it and live.” So Moses made a bronze snake and put it up on a pole. Then when anyone was bitten by a snake and looked at the bronze snake, the lived. Numbers 21:8-9 NIV
That is a picture of Yeshua at the cross like the snake on the pole!
All people, including the Jewish people, will get saved and healed only when we look upon Him, upon Yeshua, and the sacrifice on the cross.
“And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on Me, the One they have pierced, and they will mourn for Him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for Him as one grieves for a firstborn son.” Zechariah 12:10 NIV
The work on the cross includes the stripes that He received (39 lashes), the nails on His hands, the piercing of His side, and the crown of thorns!
Isaiah 53:5 “By His stripes (39 lashes) we are healed”- that’s physical disease.
The 39 lashes that He took healed the 39 categories of disease that the medical profession recognizes.
The Crown of Thorns
Mental disease stands on its own. It is not within the 39 categories of physical sicknesses. Mental disease is only healed by the crown of thorns that Yeshua wore on His head while hanging on the cross.
He humbled Himself unto death on the cross and received the crown of life. The crown of thorns dug deep into His forehead, humiliating Him. When the mind humbles itself before the Creator of Life, the mind gets healed. The crown of thorns represents the scorpion of the mind, all mental disease!
Humility and Surrender is the Key For the Healing of All Mental Diseases
The scorpion of the mind is pride against the Cross
This brings about the idolatry of self-reliance and a lust for what is detected to be as “life” or “living it up”; A lust for money, position, selfish ambition, sex, drugs, and addictive substances.
Even the ambition to be “good” without God is pride! Many good and moral people suffer from the scorpion of the mind, mental diseases because they think they are good on their own, and they don’t need Yeshua’s sacrifice to be made righteous!
“What shall we conclude then? Are we any better? Not at all! We have already made the charge that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under sin. As it is written:“There is no one righteous, not even one.’” Romans 3:9-10 NIV
Trying to be “good” without Him is regarded as dirty menstrual pads or towels. In the past, women wore rags during their period.
“All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags;
we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away.” Isaiah 64:6 NIV
Rebellion, pride, bitterness, and fear become the scorpion of the mind instead of the crown of life. They wear a crown of thorns that is mental disease, which hurts the mind and causes chemical imbalances.
Just like a scorpion stings and releases its poison, so the crown of thorns, made up of pride, rebellion, fear, and bitterness releases its poison into the brain and causes mental problems.
Yeshua wore the crown of thorns, He became sin, He became the snake, He became pride, rebellion, fear, and bitterness. He took all mental disease upon Him. He suffered it all for you! We don’t deserve this act of sacrifice. He was innocent and had no pride! He did not have to suffer, but He did it because of love!
“For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.” John 3:16-17 NIV
When We Turn to Him and Accept the Fullness of His Sacrifice For Us, We Get Healed!
Any mental disease can be healed when we humble ourselves before Yeshua’s Cross, and we accept the Blood that flows from the crown of thorns.
The mentally sick have two options:
To wear the crown of thorns of pride, rebellion, bitterness, lust, unbelief, fear, and idolatry and to be bitten by the scorpion of the mind, all mental diseases,
To repent from pride, rebellion, bitterness, unbelief, fear, and idolatry and look upon Him whom we have pierced and mourn for Him in repentance for He was wounded for our iniquities and He was depressed because of our sins, and He bore the punishment and the judgment that we deserve so we can be made whole from the poison of the scorpion of the mind which is mental diseases, all mental diseases.
“But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5 NIV
In Hebrew, the word crushed is the word depressed! Anyone that is depressed feels all of his body and mind functions have been crushed! Yeshua suffered all the symptoms of depression, so you don’t have to if you humble yourself and repent putting your full trust in Him and the sacrifice He gave for you!
Yeshua paid the price for you to wear the crown of life! He wore the crown of thorns for you to be totally free from all mental disease if you humble yourself before Him, look upon Him, worship him, receive His awesome sacrifice, put your whole trust in Him and let Him take over your life!

I want to say that I now know a lot of facts related to the history of the Church, of usurpation with identity theft, of the whole history of the Jewish people and anti-Semitism: this book is incredibly rich! A true well of information and revelations: Praise be to God! ~ François Foisil, France
