Torah Portion VAYAK’HEL/PEKUDEI – Shemot (Exodus) 35:1-40:38
Biblical New Year Abib 5781/March 2021
A Song of Ascents. Those who trust in Adonai are like Mount Zion—it cannot be moved, but endures forever. As the mountains are around Jerusalem, so Adonai is all around His people, both now and forever. For a scepter of wickedness will not rest over the land of the righteous—lest the righteous set their hands to evil. Psalm 125:1-3 TLV
Shabbat shalom, dearly beloved and a blessed New Year to you!
What? New Year in March? Yes, and Yes! This is the true Biblical New Year established from the time of the Exodus from Egypt when the Sacred Feast Calendar was given to the People of Israel. When the month of Abib (means SPRING) which is also the month of Nissan (Babylonian name) starts, the New Year also starts.
Now Adonai spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying, “This month will mark the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year for you. Exodus 12:1-2 TLV
Spring Cleaning Starts Now!
On the 14th of this Month of Abib is the Passover, which is when we are commanded to eat unleavened bread or Matsa. Spring cleaning from all leaven starts now on Abib 1 (falls on March 14 this year). We begin to shift from buying or baking bread to preparing for Matsa (unleavened bread). It is not only physical leaven that is being cleaned up, but emotional and spiritual leaven as well. Leaven is likened unto SIN, deception and false teachings – especially religious teaching that is not Kingdom teaching and therefore is not able to set you free from sin, demons and sickness.
Now when the disciples came to the other side of the sea, they had forgotten to take bread. “Watch out,” Yeshua said to them, “and beware of the hametz (leaven) of the Pharisees and Sadducees. 11How is it that you don’t understand that I wasn’t talking to you about bread? Now beware of the hametz (leaven) of the Pharisees and Sadducees!” Then they understood that He wasn’t talking about the hametz in the bread, but about the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees. Matthew 16:5, 6, 11, 12 TLV
We are at a time where many voices and messages are competing for your ears. My prayer is that you will cleanse your mind and thoughts from all spiritual and emotional leaven so you can hear only One Voice: The Voice of Yeshua!
My sheep hear My voice. I know them, and they follow Me. John 10:27 TLV
New Sowing and Triple Portion Reaping!
This is also the time of a New Sowing for a New Reaping. It is time to sow our fields with the best of seeds since the freezing months are over. In the same way it is also the time to GIVE and sow our finances into some good spiritual ground, as he who sows bountifully will reap bountifully. This year especially we want to have a great crop because the Shmita Year is coming; it begins on the Feast of Trumpets, also called Rosh Hashana (New Year), which falls on the eve of September 6 this year. And Yah promised to bless His People with a TRIPLE PORTION prior to the Shmita Year!
“Speak to Bnei-Yisrael and tell them: When you come into the land which I give you, then the land is to keep a Shabbat to Adonai. 20 Now if you ask: What are we to eat during the seventh year if, see, we are not to sow, nor gather in our increase? 21 Now I will command My blessing to you in the sixth year, so that it will yield a harvest sufficient for three years. Leviticus 25:2, 20,21 TLV
The Shmita Year is the Seventh Year in a Seven Year Cycle and it is the Shabbat Year, the year of REST for the Land. Rosh Hashana (Feast of Trumpets) in the Fall is the New Year for all civil affairs related to the Torah, including real estate and financials; the Biblical New Year in the Spring (month of Abib) is the New Year for the agricultural Sacred Feast Calendar. It is a time of renewal for His WORSHIPPERS! We can expect to fall in love with the Messiah in a fresh new way as we worship in prayer, giving, praise and celebrate Him in spite of the difficult present-day circumstances.
You crown the year with Your goodness. Your wagon tracks drip with abundance. Psalms 65:12 TLV
The Biblical New Year in the Spring is determined by the barley (when it begins to sprout), then by Passover the First Fruits of the barley harvest is brought to the priest.
The first of all the firstfruits of everything and every offering of every kind from all your offerings will belong to the kohanim (priest or minister). You will also give the kohen (priest or minister) the first of your dough, to make a blessing to rest on your house. Ezekiel 44:30 TLV
He is our Provider!
We are at a time when most inhabitants of the world are afraid of the future, of a recession, of a stock market crash and in general a collapse of the economy after a year of Covid closures and the like. Many people have rushed to get an untested “vaccine” in order to reopen the economy. But rather than running to put a substance you do not fully know into your body (that is the Temple of the Holy Spirit), I suggest that you trust Yah (God). He is our shepherd, and we shall not want. He said that our finances do not depend on the world system, but rather on our faithfulness to Him, coupled with financial sowing and reaping.
The point is this: whoever sows sparingly shall also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully shall also reap bountifully. Let each one give as he has decided in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion—for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace overflow to you, so that by always having enough of everything, you may overflow in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:6-8 TLV
Isaac sowed on a year of famine, as an outcast and a refugee in the land of the Philistines. Everything was against him, but he sowed anyways, trusting Elohim to bless him – and he reaped one hundred-fold!
Then Isaac sowed in that land and in that year reaped a hundredfold. Adonai blessed him and the man became great and continued to become greater until he became very great. Genesis 26:12,13 TLV
Those that learn to put their trust in The God of Israel, our Abba Father, will be able to ride the wave of adverse circumstances and will experience miracle provision like never before!
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew 6:33 TLV
A happy and blessed Biblical New Year to all those who choose to trust YHVH above this world’s system, above vaccines and above the constant lies coming from the mainstream media! Always remember that He is faithful to shepherd His own with great care.
A psalm of David. Adonai is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me: Your rod and Your staff comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You have anointed my head with oil, my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the House of Adonai forever. Psalm 23 TLV

Support our Prison Ministry!
We have opened a prison ministry in the United States led by Rabbi Baruch Bierman, a GRM Bible school group in the UCI prison in Florida. Step by step, they are being led to the gospel made in Zion, and we have seen many miracles happening in their lives! When Rabbi Baruch is visiting them at the prison, he always returns with reports of healings and transformation of lives. Yah has opened us a mighty door!
Currently, we are developing GRM in a platform that would make it available for all the prisoners in the American prison system to study with their tablets. We invite you to support this important ministry through prayers and donations to enlarge this effort to introduce Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah to the prison system all over the USA!

From the readers:
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
As you read this incredible book by Archbishop Bierman, you will discover shocking truths that have been shuttered and hidden by historians and theologians for generations. This book is a tsunami of revelation of our past, present, and future of the people of Yah. ~ Archbishop General Dr. Lawrence Langston, Th.D. Ph.D., USA
Signs and wonders were common among the early church, but this power was stolen from believers. How? By changing the identity of our Lord. This identity theft is revealed and clearly outlined in this breakthrough book. It will open eyes and answer many questions, restoring our true foundation of faith given to the disciples of Yeshua, our Jewish Messiah. ~ Reverend Debra Barnes, USA
