SHABBAT SHALOM Brethren!
It’s Shabbat “BESHALACH/When He Let Go”
Also written as:
Beshallach, or Beshalah (בְּשַׁלַּח — Hebrew for “when [he] let go,”
It points to the Future Final Redemption!
The Benei-Y’isra’EL / Children of Israel are finally released from bondage/slavery to Mitzrayim/Egypt after 430 years of residing there (note that only approximately 200 of those years were spent in slavery).
We are the Spiritual Children of Israel (adopted through YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH’S mighty and precious Blood).
John 1:12 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
12 But whoever did receive HIM, those trusting in His name, to these He gave the right to become children of GOD.
Ephesians 1:5-6 Names of God Bible (NOG)
5 Because of his love he had already decided to adopt us through (YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH) Yeshua Christ. He freely chose to do this 6 so that the kindness[a] he had given us in his dear Son would be praised and given glory.
Galatians 3:26-29 Names of God Bible (NOG)
26 You are all GOD’S children by believing in (YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH) Christ Yeshua. 27 Clearly, all of you who were baptized in Christ’s name have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28 There are neither Jews nor Greeks, slaves nor free people, males nor females. You are all the same in (YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH) Christ Yeshua. 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants and heirs, as GOD promised.
Galatians 4:6 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
6 Now because you are sons, God sent the Ruach of His Son into our hearts, who cries out, “Abba! Father!”
We too can be freed from whatever bondage/slavery to Satan that we may be experiencing as per Yesha’YAH(U)/Isaiah 61, etc! All we have to do is ask ABBA YAHUVEH (a.k.a YAHWEH, HASHEM, etc) to deliver us. It could be anything, for example, depression, marriage related, career related, sexual related, etc.
YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH came to set the captives free from Satan/the devil!
Luke 4:18 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
18 “The RUACH Adonai is on me,
because He has anointed me
to proclaim Good News to the poor.
He has sent me[a] to proclaim release to the captives
and recovery of sight to the blind,
to set free the oppressed,
“BESHALACH”, “Shabbat SHIRA” and “TU B’SHVAT”
Today’s Shabbat is also called:
Shabbat “SHIRA” as it is the Shabbat of Singing Praises to YAH Almighty.
In today’s Parasha, we read the “SONG OF MOSHE/MOSES” and the “SONG OF MYRIAM”.
Tomorrow is the:
Festival of “TU B’SHEVAT”
(sun-down Sunday 20th to sun-down Monday 21st January 2019) also known as:
“Rosh HaShanah La’Ilanot” ( Hebrew: ראש השנה לאילנות )
The “BIRTHDAY OF THE TREES (in Israel)”.
It’s a crucial feast though minor as it reminds to check our:
Spiritual Roots and Spiritual Fruit, etc.
Deuteronomy 20:19; John 15, Galatians 5:22-23; Psalm 11:3, Psalm 1; Daniel 4, etc.
We mark the 15th of Shevat by eating fruit, particularly from the kinds that are singled out by the TORAH in its praise of the bounty of the Holy Land:
grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates.
On this day, we remember that “man is a tree of the field” (Deuteronomy 20:19), and reflect on the lessons we can derive from our botanical analogue.
