A New Month Commences in about 5 days from today. Hope you are keeping well and still doing THE 2023 YERICHO a.k.a JERICHO MARCH [ADAR 21 – 2: Tuesday 14th to Tuesday 21st March 2023].
*Today [SHABBAT] and in 6 days time [ROSH CHODESH/HEAD OF THE MONTH/NEW MOON FESTIVAL], we celebrate THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE INAUGURATION OF THE TABERNACLE OF MOSHE a.k.a TENT OF MEETING – YAH Tabernacling amongst HIS Specially Set Apart People, HIS HOLY BRIDE, ISRAEL as it occured on NISAN a.k.a AVIV a.k.a ABIB 1 in BIBLICAL HISTORY!*
Today is SHABBAT VAYAKHEL – PEKUDEI / AND HE ASSEMBLED – AMOUNTS OF [sun-set or sun-down Friday 16th to sun-set or sun-down Saturday 17th March 2023/ADAR 25], HalleluYAH!
NOTE THE FOLLOWING:
📌SHABBAT SHALOM is a HEBREW greeting of PEACEFUL SABBATH or wishing someone peace on SABBATH and on SHABBAT *we are COMMANDED to REST and instructed not to kindle FIRE but James 3:6 gives another form of FIRE being the TONGUE.*
➡️➡️➡️Today’s Parashah, Exodus 35:2-3 Talks of not kindling fire on SHABBAT.⬅️⬅️⬅️
THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER is that there are TWO INTERPRETATIONS regards the HOLY BIBLICAL SCRIPTURES on lighting a fire on SHABBAT.
➡️The First one is about lighting a literal fire for cooking, bathing and keeping warm.
➡️The Second one is to do with our speech: we should be careful how we speak to one another. We must not speak words of wickedness/evil always and more so on THE SABBATH/SHABBAT because THE SHABBAT is the HOLIEST DAY OF THE WEEK and belongs to THE CREATOR/MAKER, YAH SHADDAI!
*Both interpretations are crucial to pay attention to as they are TRUTH! The SABBATH is meant to be a PEACEFUL Day weekly on which PEACE is to be practised amongst all of YAH’S CREATION and this HEAVENLY PEACE is to flow into every area of our lives and the rest of the days of the week.*
The devil desires war and instability and famine for mankind [Romans 14:17] because his role is to steal, kill and destroy [John 10:10; 1 Peter 5:8] and this is what his kingdom is all about hence we see a constant call for war here and there in this evil/wicked world of Esau however YAH’S KINGDOM speaks of SHALOM/PEACE and hence this is why those who are TRUE and Genuine believers in and followers of YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH are called to be THE SALT AND THE LIGHT OF this evil this evil world of Esau. *In a nutshell, The salt preserves, sustains, protects from and delays YAH’S JUDGEMENT which involves the world being destroyed by water or fire while THE LIGHT exposes the darkness and conquers it then replaces war and instability and famine with PEACE and DIVINE PROVISION, HalleluYAH!*
THE CREATOR/MAKER, YAH’S Weekly SABBATH being a Set Apart Day for HIM is crucial to observe because out of genuinely observing it as an act of expressing love towards THE CREATOR/MAKER [The Grestest COMMANDMENTs mentioned in Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Exodus 20; Mattthew 22:36-40] flow many BLESSINGS OF YAH SHADDAI, HalleluYAH HalleluYAH HalleluYAH!
*This may not seem important now however when you happen to be among the left behind during THE COMING CATCHING AWAY* (also known as but not RAPTURE) *OF THE HOLY BRIDE OF YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH, it will make more sense then* keeping in mind that it pertains to both THE HOLY BRIDE OF YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH as they are required to observe YAH’S SABBATH [sun-set Friday to sun-set Saturday] as one of the list of requirements of being among the number of the HOLY BRIDE OF YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH [Revelation 14; 7]!
Then for the left behind, if they follow the Anti-Messiah’s a.k.a Anti-Christ, Barrack Hussein Obama’s orders regarding going to their nearest Sun-Worship Day a.k.a Sun-day Churches as opposed to observing YAH’S SABBATH [Saturday], they will end up in hell fire for eternity as they will be filled with all kinds of evil spirits and take the mark of the beast inside the Sun Worship Day or Sun-Day Churches!!!
So, take heed because there will be a time on earth when YAH’S GRACE does not abound!!! GRACE has an expiry date and once this occurs, all the OLD TESTAMENT or OLD COVENANT LAWS will come in force with the manifestation merciless JUDGEMENTS for breaking them. So, this is the TIME TO READ, STUDY and MEMORISE YAH’S WORD FROM A HEBREW PERSPECTIVE (and not a Greek – Latin Viewpoint) and also get accustomed to practising YAH’S WORD the CORRECT WAY in order to avoid the devil’s pitfalls in the future…
*Let us beware of KINDLING FIRES ON THE SABBATH.*
Will stop here for now…
Remain BLESSED in YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH’S NAME, AMEN!

VAYAKHEL (וַיַּקְהֵל And He Assembled)/ PEKUDEI (פְקוּדֵי Accounts)
Exodus 35:1-38:20/38:21-40:38 AND Exodus 12:1-20
Parasha Insights from the Elders of Kehilat Bet Avinu
This double portion of Torah that will be read in synagogues around the world during this week’s Shabbat service is the last reading in the Book of Exodus. This Shabbat is also Shabbat HaChodesh (The Sabbath [of the] month”) because it precedes the first of the Hebrew month of Nisan during which Passover is celebrated. On the first day of Nisan, G-d presented the first
commandment of how to sanctify the new moon (kiddush hachodesh) for the onset of Rosh Chodesh and thus Nisan becomes the first month of the Jewish year (counting by months).
Therefore, a special reading will be added from Exodus 12:1-20.
In the last few Parshiot of Terumah, Tetzaveh and the first part of Ki Tisa, G-d instructed Moses regarding the making of the Mishkan, its vessels, and the priestly garments.
Vayakhel records the actual implementation of G-d’s instructions on how to build the Mishkan, which was recounted earlier in Parasha Terumah. Vayakhel is almost repeated word for word in
Terumah, with one notable change: the instructions in Terumah that were prefaced with the words “and they shall make” are now written with “and they made”. In Vayakhel, the people donated the required materials for the building of the Mishkan in such abundance that Moses had to tell them to stop giving (36:5-7).
In Pekudei, an accounting is made of those materials, and the eight priestly garments are made according to the specifications in Tetzaveh. Moses inspected the work and saw that they had
done it just as the L-RD had commanded. So Moses blessed them. (39:43) One year later to the very day, on the 1st of the month in the 2nd year the Tabernacle was raised up (40:17) Pekudei also addresses the mystery of how an unlimited, eternal G-d who transcends all time and space can possibly take up residence within the limitations of a man-made building.
Once Moses and the people finished the work of constructing the Mishkan, the Glory of G-d filled it: So Moses finished the work. Then the cloud covered the meeting and the glory [kavod] of G-d
filled the tabernacle. (40:33-34) The word for glory in 40:34 is kavod; it is related to the Hebrew verb kaved, which means to honor, to be honored, and to be heavy. When we give someone kaved, it means we give them honor or respect – we treat them as a person of substance, importance, of great value. This same is word used in the Ten Commandments, "Honor (kaved) your father and your mother. (20:12)
In Pekudei, G-d chose to place His Glory/Kavod (known as Shekhinah in Jewish literature) into the finite space of the Mishkan. His Presence was unmistakable and of great substance. It was
heavy and inspired reverence. The Presence of the L-rd was so weighty, in fact, that Moses himself was unable to enter. Moses could not enter the tent of meeting because the cloud had settled on it, and the glory of the L-RD filled the tabernacle. (40:35)
