From the Book of Yasher Chapter 26

9 And in about seven months later the children struggled together, and it was very painful for her and she asked the women nearby, has anything like this ever happened to you? And they answered no.

10 And she said why is this happening only to me? And she went to the land of Moriah to seek YHWH about it; so, she went to Shem and Eber his sons to ask them, and out of respect for her they would pray to YHWH.

11 She also asked Abraham to inquire of YHWH about it.

12 YHWH told them that there were two children are in her womb, and two nations will rise from them; one nation will be stronger than the other and the greater will serve the younger.

13 And when she was ready to deliver she knelt, and there were twins in her womb, as YHWH had told her.

14 And the first came out red all over like a hairy garment and the people called his name Esau, saying; “this one was made complete from the womb.”

15 And later his brother’s hand took hold of Esau's heel, and they called his name Yaakov.

16 And Yitschaq, the son of Abraham, was sixty years old when he fathered them.

17 The boys grew and in their fifteenth year were accepted as men. Esau was a flattering and deceitful man, and an expert hunter, but Yaakov was perfect and wise, dwelt in tents, fed flocks and learned the ways of YHWH.

18 And Yitschaq and his children lived with his father Abraham in the land of Canaan as YHWH had commanded.

Chapter 25

19 And these are the generations of Yitzchak, Avraham's son: Avraham begat Yitzchak:

20 And Yitzchak was forty years old when he took Rivkah to be his wife, the daughter of Bethu-El the Aramean of Padan-Aram, the sister of Lavan the Aramean.

21 And Yitzchak sought YHWH for his wife, because she was barren: and YHWH was found by him, and Rivkah his wife conceived.

22 And the children struggled together within her; and she said, if it is so, why am I like this? And she went to inquire of YHWH.

23 And YHWH said to her, two nations are in your womb, and two kinds of peoples shall be separated from your belly; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.

Note: 2 below. This is probably the saddest portion; it is about a man whom YHWH hated - YHWH hated Esav (by the way the term “Anglo Saxons” = sons of Isaac)

From the Book of Yasher Chapter 26

21 And Abraham gave all that he had to his son Yitschaq including his treasures.

22 And he commanded him, do you not know and understand that YHWH Elohim is in heaven and in earth, and there is none other like him?

23 And it was HE who took me from my father's house, and birth place and gave me all the delights on earth; and delivered me from the judgment of the wicked, for in him I did trust.

24 And HE brought me to this place, and delivered me from Ur Casdim; and said to me, to your seed I will give all these lands, and they shall inherit them when they keep my commandments, my statutes and my judgments that I have commanded you, and will command them.

25 So now my son, listen to me, and keep the commandments of YHWH Elohim, which I commanded you, do not turn from the right way, neither to the right or left, so it will be well with you and your children after you forever.

26 Remember the wonderful works of YHWH and HIS kindness that HE has shown us, delivering us from our enemies, causing them to fall into our hands; now keep all that I have commanded you, not turning away from HIS commandments, and serve HIM only, that it may be well with you and your seed after you.

27 And teach your children and your seed the ways and commandments of YHWH and the way they should go that it may be well with them forever.

28 And Yitschaq answered his father saying; that which you commanded I will do, and will not depart from YHWH Elohim, keeping all that HE commands me; and Abraham blessed him, and his children; and taught Yaakov the instructions of YHWH and HIS ways.

24 And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, see, there were twins in her womb.

25 And the first came out red, all over like a hairy garment; and they called his name Esav.

26 And after that came out his brother, and his hand took hold on Esav's heel; and his name was called Yaakov: and Yitzchak was sixty years old when she bore them.

From the Book of Yasher Chapter 26
1 After the death of Abraham his brother Esau frequently went in the field to hunt.

2 And Nimrod king of Babel, the same was Amraphel, frequently went with his mighty men to hunt in the field, and walk about in the cool of the day.

3 And Nimrod always observed Esau, for there was jealousy in Nimrod’s heart against Esau continually.

4 One day Esau went to the field to hunt and he saw Nimrod walking in the wilderness with two of his men.

5 His mighty men were with him but they went in different directions to hunt, and Esau hid himself from Nimrod.

6 Nimrod and his men did not know that Esau was there, but Esau knew where his men were in the field.

7 Nimrod and the two men with him came close to where Esau was hiding then Esau bolted suddenly and drew his sword and swiftly ran toward Nimrod and cut off his head.

8 Esau fought a desperate fight with the two men and when they called out, Esau turned and killed them with his sword.

9 The others with Nimrod who were in the woods, heard them and ran to see what was happening and found the king and his two men lying dead.

10 When Esau saw them at a distance so he escaped; and later Esau took the valuable garments of Nimrod, which his father Adam left to him, by which Nimrod ruled over the whole land, and he hid them in his house.

Note: those garments were the ones YHWH made for Adam and Eve!

11 And Esau took the garments and ran to his father's house wearied and exhausted from fighting and he was ready to die of grief when he approached his brother Yaakov and sat down before him.

12 And he said to his brother Yaakov, I will die today, and why would I want the birthright? And Yaakov acted wisely with Esau, and Esau sold his birthright to Yaakov, for this was of YHWH.

Note: this is the reason Esau was willing to give Yaakov his birthright. He was afraid that he would be put to death for killing Nimrod, so why would he need it? He was spared then realized what he had done, so he wanted his birthright restored so he would get his father’s inheritance. He blamed Yaakov for deceiving him and stealing his birthright.

13 And Esau's portion of the cave in the field of Machpelah, that Abraham bought from the children of Heth for a burial ground, this too Esau sold to Yaakov, and he bought all this for value given.

14 And Yaakov wrote all of this in a book, testified it with witnesses, sealed it, and put the book in the hands of Yaakov.

28 And Yitzchak loved Esav, because he did eat of his venison: but Rivkah loved Yaakov.

29 And Yaakov cooked pottage: and Esav came from the field, and he was faint:

30 And Esav said to Yaakov, please feed me with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore, was his name called Edom.

31 And Yaakov said; sell me this day your bachor.

32 And Esav said, See, I am at the point of death: so, what profit shall this bachor be to me?

33 And Yaakov said, swear to me this day; and he swore to him: and he sold his bachor to Yaakov.

34 Then Yaakov gave Esav lechem and a pottage of lentils; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: so Esav despised his bachor.

Note: Now, why did Yaakov do this to Esav? Look at the facts; this day was the funeral of their grandfather Avraham, who then, would have had to officiate at his memorial - Esav. Yaakov was disappointed in him; he came wandering in late, wanting something to eat, seemingly not even caring that his grandfather was being memorialized that day. Now there were a lot of Avraham's friends there paying their respects; this was a very sad occasion, but evidently not for Esav. Esav didn't even consider his birthright to be worth anything – more than a bowl of stew, and brothers, and it is still a sin to disregard your birthright in YaShua.

Chapter 26

1 And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Avraham. And Yitzchak went to Avimelech melech of the Plishtim to Gerar.

2 And YHWH appeared to him, and said, go not down into Mitzrayim; dwell in the land that I shall tell you about:

3 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with you, and will bless you; for to you and to your zera, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Avraham your abba;

Note: what oath which I have sworn? That I will curse them that curse you and bless those who bless you. 1 Notice Rivkah was not Jewish, but an Aramean who crossed over and became Hebrew. 2 Yisraelite people and Edomite people. 3 In the natural, the twins vied for being the chosen seed of promise. But in the spirit, all things were already decided. Yisrael was to be the chosen seed, YHWH’s Son, His firstborn.

4 And I will make your zera to multiply as the cochavim of the shamayim, and will give to your zera all these countries; and in your zera shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;

5 Because Avraham obeyed My voice, and kept My charge, My mitzvoth, My chukim, and My Torot.

6 And Yitzchak dwelt in Gerar:

7 And the men of the place asked him about his wife; and he said she is my sister: for he feared to say, she is my wife; lest, said he, the men of the place should kill me for Rivkah; because she was beautiful to look at.

Note: heard of this before? Was she his sister? Yes.

8 And it came to pass; when he had been there a long time that Avimelech melech of the Plishtim looked out a window, and saw Yitzchak playing with Rivkah his wife.

9 And Avimelech called Yitzchak, and said, see, of a certainty she is your wife. So why did you say, she is my sister? And Yitzchak said to him, because, I said otherwise I will die because of her.

10 And Avimelech said, what is this you have done to us? One of our people might have unknowingly lain with your wife, and you would have brought guilt upon us.

11 And Avimelech charged all his people, saying, he that touches this man, or his wife shall surely be put to death.

12 Then Yitzchak sowed in that land, and received in that same year a hundredfold return: and YHWH blessed him.

13 And the man grew great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:

14 For he had possessions of flocks, and possessions of herds, and a great supply of avadim: and the Plishtim envied him.

15 For all the wells that his abba's avadim had dug in the days of Avraham his abba, the Plishtim had stopped them, and filled them with earth.

Note: Yitzchak is now richer than the king of the nation beside him, and they are jealous. Today, you'd think when we are so tolerant of so many cultures and beliefs, you'd think that the way we Messianics follow Torah that the people that we live among would in fact admire and respect what we do, but instead it’s like; “we don't like your heritage, we don't like your claim that Avraham, Isaac, and Yaakov are you fathers, how dare you, and that YHWH has made a covenant with you alone and that you are “the chosen.” The next step; you don't have a right to live among us like Jews, keeping those Jewish things. Mainly, here is what we Jews see today; “the christian conversion”, they say, let's get them to change and they will be like us; they won't be Jews any more. Even the church fathers and the Jewish scholars agreed, that's correct, “if you believe in YaShua you won't be a Jew!” Then they can’t claim that Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov as their forefathers. Thereafter they said let's take away their right to obey Torah, their right to keep Sabbath, keeping Kosher, observing the spring and Fall Feasts of YHWH and finally, it came to this; the Nazi’s informed the Jews; “you have no right to live as Jews among us” --- then, they were told you have no right to live like Jews – and finally, “you don’t have the right to live.” This was in Nazi Germany.

In Romans 11 - “has YHWH rejected Israel?” Man has perverted the meaning of who Israel really is and denounces YHWH’s love for them saying that He has abandoned them and no longer loves them and even claims that the Torah commandments are null and void, that YaShua did away with Torah. This is an outright lie from hell.

Romans 9:5-22 w/footnotes

5 Who are the ahvot, from whom Moshiach came in the flesh, who is the tikvah over all, YHWH the Blessed One le-olam-va-ed.

6 Not as though the word of YHWH has failed in Yisrael. For they are not all still Yisrael, who are from Yisrael:

7 Neither, because they are the zera of Avraham, are they all b’nai Yisrael: but, in Yitzchak shall your zera be called.

8 That is, those who are children of the flesh, these are not the b’nai YHWH: but the b’nai-brit are counted as the zera.

9 for this is the word of promise, now will I come, and Sarah shall have a son.

10 And not only this; but when Rivkah also had conceived by one, even by our abba Yitzchak;

11 For the children being not yet born, neither having done any tov, or evil, that the purpose of YHWH according to choice might stand, not of works, but of Him that does the calling;

12 It was said to her; the older boy shall serve the younger.

13 As it is written, Yaakov have I loved, but Esav have I hated.

14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with YHWH? Let it not be!

15 For He says to Moshe, I will have chen, (chen= favor) on whom I will have chen, and I will have rachamim on whom I will have rachamim.

16 So then it is not within reach of him that wishes, nor of him that strives in the flesh to be Yisrael, but of YHWH that shows rachamim.

17 For the Katuv says to Pharaoh, even for this same purpose have I raised you up, that I might show My power through you, and that My Name might be declared throughout all the earth.

18 Therefore He has rachamim on whom He will have rachamim, and He hardens the levim of those He does not choose.

19 You might say then to me, why does He find fault with some that He does not choose? For who has resisted His will?

20 No but, O man, who are you that replies and talks back to YHWH? Shall the thing formed say to Him that formed it, why have you made me this way?

21 Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel to honor, and another to dishonor?

22 What if YHWH, willing to show His wrath, and to make His power known, endured with much patience the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction:


5 First, Jewish-Yisrael to be Yisrael must become like Isaac. Isaac was a regenerated individual in covenant relationship with YHWH, the chosen offspring of Abraham. We see this confirmed in ****Galatians 4:28. So then Yisrael as a nation cannot be divided along the lines of spiritual or physical Yisrael, since unless one can claim both physical birth and spiritual rebirth, one may be a biological Yisraelite like those in Judah, and yet not be regenerated like Isaac was.

6 Take note: Being a descendant of Abraham does not mean someone is a physical Yisraelite. Rather physical Yisraelite descent must be found to be through Isaac and Jacob. Moreover, the Yishmaelites cannot be biological Yisrael, though the door is open for them to join and dwell with Yisrael, at which point after being born again they are to be considered Yisrael both physically and spiritually.

7 As stated, the Yisrael of YHWH is both physical and spiritual Yisrael. If one is merely physical Yisrael, they cannot be like Isaac, a spiritual child of promise. This applies equally to both houses.

8 Yisrael called to be the head and not the tail.

9 When YHWH calls His Yisrael, it is a display of choice not human will, and moreover it is for representing all that He is, including His Name YHWH.

10 Note that the lump is the same, from which both Jews and non-Jews come. That is the lump of the seed of Jacob filling all nations.

11 The vessels of wrath were Efrayim-Yisrael, with whom YHWH has shown extraordinary patience.


****Gal 4.28 and footnotes

28 Now we, Yisraelite brothers, are like Yitzchak was; we are the children of promise.


7 At this moment in time after Messiah’s first coming.

8 Isaac was both physical and spiritual Yisrael, and so are all believers in Messiah, since this verse is clear that we are like Isaac and not limited to just spiritual or physical Yisraelite status, but now we can claim both roles and positions.

9 Promised seed through Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

And: that's why our unsaved Jewish brothers say, the NT is the bible of the god of the gentiles; and, has nothing to do with us, and, christianity teaches that the Torah is of no concern to a christian’s way of life. They also agree that a Jew can’t believe in Messiah and still live the Jewish way of life. Or; if you are a believer, you must forsake the Jewish way of life and live like a christian. YHWH warns us not to learn the ways of the stranger. We Messianics face many trials of our faith – neither the non-believing Jews or christians want us.

16 And Avimelech said to Yitzchak; go away from us; you are mightier than us.

17 And Yitzchak departed from there and camped in the Valley of Gerar, and dwelt there.

18 And Yitzchak dug the wells again as they had dug in the days of Avraham his abba; for the Plishtim had plugged them after the death of Avraham: and he called them by the same names as his abba used for his wells.

19 And Yitzchak's avadim dug in the valley and found a well of running mayim.

20 The herdsmen of Gerar strove with Yitzchak's, saying, the mayim is ours: and he called the name of the well Esek; because they strove with him.

Note: they charged that the water in Yitzchak’s wells was theirs because it drained from their wells!

21 And they dug another well, and strove over that one also: and he called the name of it Sitnah.

Note: this is the strife that will go on until our Messiah returns – He told us that nothing we would do would ever please them, that they will never be satisfied or try to live in peace. YHWH commanded that we have no dealings at all with them!          

22 And he moved from there, and dug another well; and they didn’t strive with that one: and he called the name of it Rehovoth; and he said, for now YHWH has made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.

23 And he went up from there to Beer-Sheva.

24 And YHWH appeared to him that first night and said; I am the Elohim of Avraham your abba: fear not, for I am with you, and will bless you, and multiply your zera for My eved Avraham's sake.

25 And he built an altar there and called on the Name of YHWH and pitched his tent there and Yitzchak's avadim dug a well.

26 Then Avimelech went to him from Gerar, and Ahuzzath one of his chaverim, and Phichol the chief captain of his army.

27 And Yitzchak said to them, why do you come to me, seeing you hate me, and sent me away?

28 And they said we saw certainly that YHWH was with you: and we said, let there be now an oath between us, let us make a brit with you;

29 That you will do us no harm, for we have not touched you, and as we have done to you nothing but tov, and have sent you away in shalom: you are now the blessed of YHWH.

30 And he made them a feast, and they did eat and drink. (which constitutes a covenant)

31 And they arose early in the morning, and swore one to another: and Yitzchak sent them away, and they departed from him in shalom.

32 And it came to pass the same day that Yitzchak's avadim came, and told him concerning the well that they had dug, and said to him, we have found mayim.

33 And he called it Shevah: therefore, the name of the city is Beer-Sheva to this day.

34 And Esav was forty years old when he took his wife Yahudite the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite:

35 Which caused grief of mind to Yitzchak and to Rivkah.

Chapter 27

1 And it came to pass, that when Yitzchak was old, his eyes dim that he could not see, and he called Esav his eldest son, and said to him, My son: and he said to him, see, hinayni.

2 And he said, see now, I am old; I know not the day of my death:

3 Now please take your quiver and bow and go out to the field and find me some venison;

4 And make me tasty meat, such as I love, and bring it to me, so I may eat; that my soul may bless you before I die.

5 And Rivkah heard when Yitzchak spoke to Esav his son. And Esav went to the field to hunt for venison.

6 And Rivkah spoke to Yaakov her son, saying; I heard your abba speak to Esav your brother saying,

7 bring me venison and make me tasty meat that I may eat and bless you before YHWH before my death.

8 Now therefore my son do what I command.

9 Go now to the flock and bring me two tov goat kids; and I will make tasty meat that your abba loves.

10 you will take it to your abba for him to eat, and that he may bless you before his death.

11 And Yaakov said to his eema, look, Esav my brother is a hairy man, and I am smooth:

12 My abba will feel me and I will seem as a deceiver; and I shall bring a curse upon me, and not a bracha.

13 his eema said; on me be your curse my son: only obey me, go get them for me.

14 And he brought them to his eema: and his eema made tasty meat, such as his abba loved.

15 And Rivkah took nice clothing from her eldest son Esav and put them on Yaakov her younger son:

16 And she put the skins of the kids on his hands, and on the smooth parts of his neck:

17 And she gave the tasty meat and lechem that she prepared to her son Yaakov.

18 And he went to his abba and said; my abba: and he said; hinayni; who are you?

19 And Yaakov said to his abba, I am Esav your bachor; I have done accordingly as you told me: please arise and eat of my venison that your being may bless me.

20 And Yitzchak said; how is it that you have found it so quickly my son? And he said, because YHWH your Elohim brought it to me.

21 And Yitzchak said to Yaakov, please come near so I can feel you, if you are my son Esav or not.

22 And Yaakov went near his abba; and he felt him and said; the voice is Yaakov's voice but the hands are the hands of Esav.

23 And he discerned him not because his hands were hairy as Esav's hands: so, he blessed him.

24 And he asked, are you my son Esav? And he answered; I am.

25 And he said bring it and I will eat my son's venison, that my being may bless you. And he brought it to him and he ate: and he also brought him wine, and he drank.

26 And his abba Yitzchak asked him to come near and kiss him.

27 And he came near and kissed him: and he smelled the smell of his clothing, and blessed him, and said, see, the smell of my son is as the smell of a field that YHWH has blessed:

28 Therefore Elohim give you from the dew of the shamayim and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine:

29 Let people serve you and nations bow down to you: be master over your brothers and let your eema's sons bow down to you: cursed be every one that curses you, and blessed be he that blesses you.

30 And it came to pass, as soon as Yitzchak had made the bracha upon Yaakov and he had just left the presence of his abba, and just then Esav came in from hunting.

31 And he also made tasty meat and brought it to his abba saying; let my abba eat so that your being may bless me.

32 And Yitzchak his abba said to him, who are you? And he said, I am your son, your bachor Esav.

33 And Yitzchak trembled very exceedingly, and asked, who? Where is he that has that brought me tasty meat to eat before you came and have blessed him? Yes, and he shall be blessed.

34 And when Esav heard his father’s words he cried with an exceedingly bitter cry, saying, abba, bless me also, O my abba.

Note: they say that these are the bitterest tears a man could cry, as those from Esav, but he did sell his birthright. And now that Yitzchak has blessed his brother, there is nothing he can do to “undo' what's been done. Again, YHWH says we are bound by what we say. Below, look what he says to his father in V36 and at the judgment they'll be crying out, oh, just one more chance!

35 And his abba said, your brother came with subtlety and took your bracha.

36 And Esau said, is not he rightly named Yaakov? For he has supplanted me these two times: he took away my bachor; and, look, now he has taken my bracha! And Esav asked; have you not reserved a bracha for me?

37 And Yitzchak answered and said to Esav; see, I have made him your master, and all his brothers have I given to him for avadim; and with corn and wine have I sustained him: and what will I do now for you, my son?

38 And Esav said to his abba; have you not just one bracha, my abba? Bless me, even me also, O my abba. And Esav cried aloud weeping.

39 And Yitzchak his abba answered and said to him; see, your dwelling shall be away from the richness of the earth, and away from the dew of the shamayim from above;

40 And by your sword shall you live, and shall serve your brother; and it shall come to pass when you shall have the dominion, that you shall break his yoke from off your neck.

41 And Esav hated Yaakov because of the bracha with which his abba blessed him: and Esav said in his lev, the days of mourning for my abba are at hand; then will I kill my brother Yaakov.

Note: Yaakov's name means in Hebrew, “supplanter” and now Esav accuses him of this that he has done these two times! But look what he says, V36, he took away my first born’s’ right, and now the blessing too! He adds, haven't you reserved a blessing for me too? Yaakov didn't take away Esav's blessing – he's lying, he sold it.

Note: he has hate in his heart for his brother and plans to kill him. This is prophesied, and we, just as he did will see the days of Yaakov’s trouble. For us, we are in the days of Yaakov’s trouble as of 4 years ago when the clerics in Jerusalem made an announcement at the Kotel proclaiming it.

42 Esav’s words were told to Rivkah: and she sent for Yaakov, and told him, see, your brother Esav, does comfort himself with the thought of killing you.

43 So my son, obey me; arise and flee to Lavan my brother in Charan;

44 And stay with him a few days until your brother's anger turns away;

45 Until your brother's anger turns away from you, and he forgets what you have done to him: then I will send for you: “why should I be deprived of both of you in one day?”

46 And Rivkah told Yitzchak I am weary of my chayim because of the daughters of Cheth: if Yaakov takes a wife from the daughters of Cheth that are gentiles, what tov shall my chayim be to me?

Note: his uncle Laban will mistreat and cheat him.

Chapter 28

1 And Yitzchak called Yaakov and blessed him, charging him saying, you shall not take a wife of the daughters of Kanaan.

2 Arise go to Padan-Aram, to the bayit of Bethu-El your eema's abba; and take a wife from the daughters of Lavan your eema's brother.

3 And El-Shaddai bless you and make you fruitful and multiply you and you shall become a congregation of nations;

4 And El-Shaddai give you the bracha of Avraham and to you and to your zera with you; that you may inherit the land in which you are a stranger, which Elohim gave to Avraham.

5 Yitzchak sent Yaakov away: and he went to Padan-Aram to Lavan, son of Bethu-El the Aramean, the brother of Rivkah, Yaakov's and Esav's eema.

6 Esav saw that Yitzchak had blessed Yaakov sending him to Padan-Aram to take a wife from there; and that he gave him a charge that he shall not take a wife from the daughters of Kanaan;

7 And that Yaakov obeyed his abba and his eema.

8 And Esav saw that the daughters of Kanaan did not please Yitzchak his abba;

9 Then Esav went to Yishma-El, and took other wives besides the wives that he already had; Mahalath the daughter of Yishma-El Avraham's son, the sister of Nevayoth, to be his wife.

From the Book of Yasher Chapter 29

11 And Yaakov was very afraid of his brother, and he fled to Eber’s house, Shem’s son, and he hid fourteen years and learned YHWH’s Torah; Yaakov was sixty-three years old when he left Canaan.

12 And Esau saw that Yaakov escaped from him he grieved bitterly and was vexed at his father and mother, that he took his wife and went away to the land of Seir and dwelt there; and Esau saw a daughter of Heth named Bosmath, daughter of Elon the Hittite, and took her for a wife in addition to his first wife, and called her name Adah, saying; the blessing had passed from him.

13 And Esau dwelt in the land of Seir six months without seeing his father and mother, and afterward he returned to Canaan, and put his two wives in his father's house in Hebron.

14 And the wives of Esau aggravated and provoked Yitzchak and Rebecca with their pagan ways, for they were gentiles and worshipped idols of wood and stone as their father had taught them, and they were even more wicked than their father.

15 And they did per the evil desires of their hearts and they sacrificed and burnt incense to the Baalim, and Yitzchak and Rebecca became weary of them.

16 And Rebecca said, I am weary of my life because of the daughters of Heth; if Yaakov takes a wife of the daughters of Heth, such as these, what good then is life to me?

17 And Adah the wife of Esau conceived and bore him a son, and Esau called the name of the son that was born to him Eliphaz, and Esau was sixty-five years old when she bore him.

18 And Ishmael the son of Abraham died, in the sixty-fourth year of the life of Yaakov, and the years of Ishmael were one hundred and thirty-seven years.

19 And when Yitzchak heard that Ishmael was dead he mourned for him, and Yitzchak lamented over him many days.

20 And at the end of fourteen years of Yaakov's residing in the house of Eber, Yaakov desired to see his father and mother and Yaakov came to the house of his father and mother in Hebron, and Esau had forgotten that Yaakov had taken the blessing from him.

21 And when Esau saw Yaakov coming to his father and mother he remembered what Yaakov had done to him, and he was greatly incensed against him and he sought to kill him.

22 And Yitzchak was old and Esau said, now my father's time of death is near and when he dies I will kill my brother Yaakov.

23 This was told to Rebecca and she hurried and called for Yaakov and she said to him, flee to Haran to my brother Laban’s, and remain there for some time, until your brother's anger is turned from you and then you can come back.

24 And Yitzchak told Yaakov not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan for our father Abraham commanded us per the Torah of YHWH saying, to your seed I will give this land; if your children keep MY covenant I made with you, then will I bless them.

25 Now my son hear me, do what I command you, do not take a wife from among the daughters of Canaan; go to Haran to Bethuel your mother's father and take a wife from the daughters of Laban your mother's brother.

26 Do not forget YHWH your ELOHIM and HIS ways wherever you go, and do not mix with the people of the land, and forsake YHWH your ELOHIM.

27 But when you come into the land, serve YHWH; do not turn to the right or to the left from the way which I commanded you and which you did learn.

28 And may YHWH Elohim grant you favor in the sight of the people, that you may take a wife of your choice; one who is good and upright in the ways of YHWH.

29 And may YHWH give to you and your seed the blessing of your father Abraham, and make you fruitful and multiply you, and become a multitude in the land where you go, and may YHWH cause you to return to this land, the land of your father's, with children, great riches, joy and pleasure.

30 And Yitzchak finished commanding Yaakov and blessing him, he gave him many gifts, with silver and gold, and sent him away; Yaakov listened to his father and mother; he kissed them and went to Padan-aram; and Yaakov was seventy-seven years old when left Canaan from Beersheba.

31 And when Yaakov left Haran, Esau called his son Eliphaz, and spoke secretly to him; saying hurry, take your sword and pursue Yaakov, pass him in the road, look for him, and kill him with your sword in one of the mountains and take all his belongings and return.

32 Eliphaz the son of Esau was an active, valiant man and an expert with the bow as his father had taught him and a noted hunter in the field.

33 And Eliphaz did as his father had told him, and Eliphaz was thirteen years old, and Eliphaz took ten of his mother's brothers with him and pursued Yaakov.

34 And he closely followed Yaakov, and he watched for him at the border of Canaan opposite the city of Shechem.

35 And Yaakov saw Eliphaz and his men pursuing him and he stood still to see what his intentions were, and Eliphaz drew his sword and advanced and Yaakov said to them, why have you come here pursuing me with your swords?

36 And Eliphaz came near and said to him, my father commanded me to do this and I will not deviate from the orders my father gave me; and when Yaakov realized that Esau had ordered Eliphaz to use force, Yaakov approached and reasoned with Eliphaz and his men saying to him,

37 See, everything that my father and mother gave me, take it and go, do not kill me, and may it be to you as righteousness.

38 And YHWH caused Yaakov to find favor with Eliphaz and his men, and they listened to Yaakov and they did not put him to death and Eliphaz and his men took all that belonged to Yaakov also the silver and gold that he had brought with him from Beersheba; and left him nothing.

39 And Eliphaz and his men returned to Esau to Beersheba and they told him what had occurred with Yaakov and they gave him all that they had taken from him.

40 And Esau was indignant toward Eliphaz his son, and the men that were with him because they had not put Yaakov to death.

41 And they answered Esau, because Yaakov asked us not to slay him, our pity was excited toward him, and we took all of Yaakov’s belongings to him and brought it to you; and Esau put it in his house.

42 At that time Esau saw that Yitzchak had blessed Yaakov, and commanded him not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan, that they were bad in the sight of Yitzchak and Rebecca,

43 Esau then went to the house of Ishmael his uncle, and in addition to his older wives he took Machlath the daughter of Ishmael, the sister of Nevayoth, for a wife.

The last 3 Torah portions hold many prophecies for the last generation. The bottom line; Yaakov didn’t steal Esau’s birthright, he sold it, and later had remorse for doing so, which made it easy for him to accuse Yaakov.

Hebrews 12:14-17

14 Follow shalom with all men, and set-apartness, (to be “set-apart” you must obey Torah), which without, no man shall see YHWH:

15 Taking heed lest any man fall short of the favor of YHWH; lest any root of bitterness spring up to harm you, and by which many be defiled;

16 Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esav, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.

17 For you know how that afterwards, when he would have inherited the bracha, he was rejected: for he had no chance of recovering it, though he sought it carefully with tears.


14 Follow shalom with all men, and set-apartness, (Torah keeping), without which no man shall see YHWH: Omein!



1 After these things YaShua showed Himself again to the talmidim at the Sea of Kinnereth; and in this manner, did He show Himself.

2 There were together Shimon Kepha, and Toma called the Twin, and Natan-El of Qanah in Galil, and the sons of Zavdi, and two others of His talmidim.

3 Shimon Kepha said to them, I’m going fishing. They said to him, we’ll also go with you. They went forth, and climbed into a boat immediately; and that night they caught nothing.

4 But when the morning had come, YaShua stood on the shore: but the talmidim knew not that it was YaShua.

5 Then YaShua said to them, children, have you any food? They answered Him, No.

6 And He said to them, cast the net on the right side of the ship, and you shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it in for the multitude of fishes.

7 Therefore that talmid whom YaShua loved said to Kepha, it is YaShua. Now when Shimon Kepha heard that it was YaShua, he put on his outer fisher’s coat – for he was stripped – and did cast himself into the sea.

8 And the other talmidim came in a little boat – for they were not far from land, but as it were about a hundred yards – dragging the net with the fishes.

9 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it, and lechem.

10 YaShua said to them, Bring of the fish that you have now caught.

11 Shimon Kepha went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, one hundred fifty three: for even though there were so many. The right side is the Hebrew Gematria for “Righteous One” 153 is the Gematria for “all the sons of Israel”


Malachi 1:1 - 2:7

1 The burden of the word of YHWH to Yisrael by Malachi.

2 I have loved you, says YHWH. Yet you say, in what way have You loved us? Was not Esav Yaakov’s brother? Says YHWH: yet I loved Yaakov,

3 And I hated Esav, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the jackals of the wilderness.

4 Yet Edom says, we are beaten down, but we will return and rebuild the desolate places. This says YHWH tzevaoth, they shall build, but I will throw down; and they shall call them, the borders of wickedness, and, the people against whom YHWH has indignation forever.

5 And your eyes shall see, and you shall say, YHWH will be magnified from beyond the borders of Yisrael.

6 A son honors his abba and an eved his master: if then I am an Abba, where is My honor? And if I am a Master, where is reverence for Me? Says YHWH tzevaoth to you, O Kohanim, that despise My Name. And you say, in what way have we despised Your Name?

7 You offer unclean foods upon My altar; and you say, in what way have we polluted You? By saying, the shulchan of YHWH is despicable.

8 And if you offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? And if you offer the lame and sick, is it not evil? Offer it now to your governor; will he be pleased with you, or will he accept you favorably? Says YHWH tzevaoth.

9 And now, seek the face of El that He will show unmerited favor to us: this disaster has been brought on by your own doing; so, I will not show you favor, says YHWH tzevaoth.

10 Who is there among you that would guard My doors, or kindle a fire on My altar for nothing? I have no pleasure in you, says YHWH tzevaoth, neither will I accept an offering at your hand.

11 For from the rising of the sun even to the going down of the same My Name shall be great among the nations; and in every place incense shall be offered to My Name, and a pure offering: for My Name, shall be great among the nations says YHWH tzevaoth.

12 But you have profaned it, in that you say, the shulchan of YHWH is polluted; and its fruit, even its food, is despicable.

13 You said also, behold, what a burden is it! And you have sneered at it, says YHWH tzevaoth; and you brought that which was torn, and the lame, and the sick; this you brought as My offering: should I accept this from your hand? Says YHWH.

14 But cursed be the deceiver, who has in his flock a perfect male, and vows, and yet sacrifices to YHWH a corrupt thing: for I am a great Melech, says YHWH tzevaoth, and My Name is feared among the nations.

Chapter 2

1 And now, O Kohanim, this commandment is for you.

2 If you will not listen, and if you will not take it to lev, to give tifereth to My Name, says YHWH tzevaoth, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yes, I have cursed them already, because you do not take it to lev.

3 Behold, I will corrupt your zera, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your moadim; and one shall take you away with it.

4 And you shall know that I have sent this commandment to you, that My brit might be with Lewi, says YHWH tzevaoth.

5 My brit was with HIM for chayim and shalom; and I gave them to HIM for the fear by which he feared Me, and was in awe of My Name.

6 The Torah of emet was in HIS mouth, and iniquity was not found in HIS lips: HE had his Halacha with Me in shalom and equity, and did turn many away from their Torah breaking.

7 For the kohen’s lips should keep da’at, and they should seek the Torah at HIS mouth: for HE is the messenger of YHWH tzevaoth.

Brit Chadasha

Romiyah 9:6 -16

6 Not as though the word of YHWH has failed in Yisrael. For they are not all still Yisrael, who are from Yisrael:

7 Neither, because they are the zera of Avraham, are they all b’nai Yisrael: but, in Yitzchak shall your zera be called.

8 That is, those who are children of the flesh, these are not the b’nai YHWH: but the b’nai-brit are counted as the zera. (or, of the House of Israel)

9 For this is the word of promise, now will I come, and Sarah shall have a son.

10 And not only this; but when Rivkah also had conceived by one, even by our abba Yitzchak;

11 For the children being not yet born, neither having done any tov or evil, that the purpose of YHWH according by choice might stand, not of works, but of Him that does the calling;

12 It was said to her; the older boy shall serve the younger.

13 As it is written, Yaakov have I loved, but Esav have I hated.

14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with YHWH? Let it not be!

15 For He says to Moshe, I will have chen on whom I will have chen, and I will have rachamim on whom I will have rachamim.

16 So then it is not within reach of him that wishes, nor of him that strives in the flesh to be Yisrael, but of YHWH that shows rachamim.

In closing; when you read this portion, it should become obvious to you the gross mis-teaching of christianity, which misses YHWH’s mark of righteousness. This is no small matter, selah…





Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE HE

Messianic Hagadah

Pre prep: have 3 matzos in the bag; break the middle one later.



Welcome. There are many elements and shadow pictures that will be displayed here tonight, a remembrance of a long ago exodus out of Mitzrayim, and Moshe, a type of Messiah, and the story for us today, the story of our Messiah YaShua.

We are commanded to rid our homes of all Chametz and clean up our dwelling in honor of the arrival of our Honored Guest; YHWH/YaShua. So, let us pray at this time to YHWH our Elohim that we are found free of any leaven that might blind us and mar our relationship with HIM.


Pray -

We are gathered here again, another Seder or Order, keeping the Commandment of YHWH that each year we are to observe and tell the Exodus story throughout our generations. It is the story of how Israel called out to the Elohim of Avraham, Yitzchak, and Yaakov, to deliver them from out of the bondage of Mitzrayim into the Promised Land; HE heard their cries, and HE redeemed them from slavery. Yes, HE redeemed HIS chosen people. It is so important that it happens to be the very first Commandment and it reads; Exodus chapter 20:2 I am YHWH your Elohim, Who brought you out of the land of Mitzrayim, out of the house of slaves. This is a time of thanksgiving before HIM and realize that there is coming an even greater Exodus; out of the nations, when our Messiah YaShua leads US home to the Promised Land! Today, know that HIS Torah is a great “shadow picture” of good things to come, as the Apostle Shaul wrote. Today YaShua Messiah, will hear our cry and redeem us from death unto life eternal, when we receive mercy instead of death for breaking HIS Torah Commandments and releases us from the bondage of sin. I ask tonight that you consider each of the scriptures and prayers that you will hear this evening.


At this time we will light the lights, of this Seder celebration.


Candle Lighting: Bharuch Atah yom tov. Blessed are you, YHWH, King of the Universe, who has sanctified us by your commandments, and has commanded us to kindle the Festival lights. Amen. Bharuch Atah YHWH Eloheynu Melekh ha'olam asher she-he-kan-nu v'-ki-yi-mo-nu v'-hi-gi-anu l'zman ha-zey. Blessed are you, YHWH, King of the Universe, who has kept us in life and has preserved us, and has enabled us to reach this season. Amen.


Let us look at the elements we will use during the Seder;

During the Passover Seder we will drink three glasses of wine: The Cup of Sanctification, The Cup of Redemption and the Cup of Praise. We will say the traditional Hebrew prayers before drinking each cup.




Traditional - We are to be clean of leaven.

- Yochanan 13:31 When, Yuda went out, Rebbe Melech Ha Moshiach says; now the Ben HaAdam receives kavod and YHWH is given kavod in him. “and the room then was clean of leaven.”

Fulfillment - We are to be clean of sin -- YaShua is the only way to be cleansed of our sins.


Traditional - Remembrance of the Plagues in Egypt (We don’t drink this cup)

Fulfillment - Remembrance of our trials and tribulations - develops perseverance, humility and maturity in our walk with YaShua


Traditional - Symbolizes the blood of the Passover lamb who saved the Israelites from death

Fulfillment - YaShua is our Passover Lamb whose blood saves us from death.

This cup is the cup used in communion or YHWH's Supper.


Traditional - Give thanks to YHWH for guiding the Israelites out of Egypt

Fulfillment - We are to always have praise on our lips for our salvation that is given through YaShua Messiah.


The Torah teaches us that there are four things under Heaven that cannot be separated, and they are as follows:

YHWH / Torah = they are echad, or one

YHWH / YaShua = they too are echad, one

Mercy / grace = they go hand in hand, one magnifying the other

Faith / Torah obedience = one is the witness of the other


1st CUP – Sanctification

Bless YHWH for the wine.


(At this time we drink the first cup)


The KARPAS (Parsley)

Exodus 2:23-25

23 The Israelites groaned in their slavery and cried out, and their cry for help, because of their slavery, went up to YHWH.

24 YHWH heard their groaning and He remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac and with Jacob.

25 So YHWH looked on the Israelites with compassion.


Eating the Karpas - Take the parsley, called kar-pas dip it into the salt water twice and eat it. We do this to symbolize the salty bitter tears of our slavery.


At this time we break the middle matzo

The broken piece is called "the bread of affliction or Afikomen."


(Remove and break the middle matzah in two relatively equal pieces.)

We will eat one half and the other half, called the Afikomen, or the dessert we place in the Afikomen bag or pouch.


(we put it in the Afikomen pouch.)


MAGGID - the “messenger” who says: Shema Yisrael (Hear O’Israel and obey)

Deuteronomy 6:4-9

4 Hear, O Israel: YHWH your Elohim is Echad.

5 Love YHWH your Elohim with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.

6 These commandments that I give you today are to be written on your heart.

7 Impress them on your children. Talk of them when you sit at home and when you walk by the way, when you lie down and when you rise up.

8 bind them on your arm and on your foreheads.

9 Write them on the door posts and on your gates.


Deuteronomy 6:20-25;

20 in the future, when your sons ask you, "What is the meaning of the laws that YHWH our Elohim has commanded you?"

21 Tell him: "We were slaves of Pharaoh in Egypt, but YHWH Elohim brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand.

22 Before our eyes YHWH sent miraculous signs and wonders--great and terrible--upon Egypt and Pharaoh and his whole household.

23 But he brought us out from there, to give us the land that he promised to our forefathers.

24 YHWH commanded us to obey Torah and to fear YHWH our Elohim, so that we might always prosper and be kept alive, as is the case today.

25 And if we are obedient to obey Torah before YHWH our Elohim, as he has commanded us, that will be our righteousness."


Exodus 12:26-27;

26 and it shall come to pass, when your banim shall say unto you, Mah ha avodah hazot lachem (What is this service to you)?

27 That you shall say, It is the zevach of YHWH's Pesach, (who passed over or spared) the batim (households) of the Bnei Yisrael in Mitzrayim, when HE struck down the Egyptians, and spared bateinu (our houses). And the people bowed down and worshiped.



Ma nish-ta-nah ha-lai-lah ha-zeh mi-kol ha-ley-lot! She-be-khol ha-ley-lot a-nu okh-lin kha-meytz u-ma-tzah.

Ha-lai-lah ha-zeh ku-lo ma-tzah. She-be-khol ha-ley-lot a-nu okh-lin she'ar yerakot. Ha-lai-lah ha-zeh a-ror.

She-be-khol ha-ley-lot eyn a-nu mat-bi-lin a-fi-lu pa-'am e-khet. Ha-lai-lah ha-zeh shtey f'a-min.

She-be-khol ha-ley-lot a-nu okh-lin beyn yo-she-vin u-veyn me-su-bin. Ha-lai-lah ha-zeh ku-la-nu me-su-bin.


How different this night is from all other nights!

On all other nights we eat bread or matzah. On this night why do we eat only matzah?

On all other nights we eat all kinds of vegetables. On this night why do we eat only bitter herbs?

On all other nights we do not dip our vegetables even once. On this night why do we dip them twice?

On all other nights we eat our meals sitting or reclining. On this night why do we eat only reclining?

Tonight is different from all other nights because tonight we will remember what YHWH has done for his people.


We the story of Passover.

A long time had gone by and the Pharaoh who remembered Yoseph, died. Out of fear of our great number, the new Pharaoh feared we would rise up against them, so they put us under harsh bondage. For four-hundred years the Israelites groaned under bondage and cried out to YHWH and HE heard their cries. YHWH chose Moshe (a type of Messiah) who was raised up in Pharaoh’s house, was destined to lead us out of Egypt. Later YHWH appeared to Moses in a burning bush and told him that he would use him to lead HIS people out of Egypt and into a land "flowing with milk and honey." So Moses returned to Egypt riding on a donkey. We see a shadow picture of Our Messiah who came into Yahrushalayim “riding on a donkey.”

The Egyptians worshipped many gods, and YHWH sent 10 plagues upon Egypt’s gods showing Pharaoh that they were not gods at all, but there was only ONE true Elohim, and that was the Elohim of Avraham, Yitzchak, and Yaakov. With each plague Pharaoh refused to let the Israelites go, the land of Egypt came under a great plague a tenth and awful plague, where the heart of Pharaoh would be pierced. The death of the “first-born.” The Pesach or Passover of Yisrael!

Exodus 12:12 on that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn--both men and animals--and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am YHWH.


Exodus 12:13 and the blood on the houses where you are staying shall be a sign for you: when I see the blood, I will pass over you, so that no plague will destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.


2nd CUP - CUP OF PLAGUES: Let us fill our cups a second time.

Bless our Father for the wine.

A full cup is a sign of joy and on this night we are filled with joy in remembrance of YHWH's mighty deliverance. We must also remember the great sacrifice at which redemption was purchased. Lives were sacrificed to bring the Israelites out of the bondage of Egypt. As we recite each plague, let us dip our little finger into the cup, allowing a drop of wine to fall, reducing the fullness of our cup of joy this night.

ALL recite:




Wild Beasts!

Disease to Livestock!





Death of the Firstborn!


PASSOVER: It is YHWH that we honor in remembering that HE passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when HE struck the Egyptians. (Lifting the shank bone of a lamb) The shank bone reminds us of the lamb whose blood marked the doors of the Israelites. We read in Exodus that the lamb was to be of its first year, without defect, and brought into the household and cared for. It was then between the evenings, on the fourteenth day of the month, that the Israelites were to kill the lamb and put the blood on the sides and tops of the door frames. YHWH gave HIS people instructions that only through obedience would they be spared from the angel of death. Isaiah told of the coming Messiah, that HE would be led like a lamb to the slaughter. We know that YaShua was our final blood atonement so that we would be freed from the bondage of sin and we would be passed over and spared from the death penalty for breaking YHWH’s Torah Commandments, receiving mercy instead of death.

Revelation 5:12 "Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!"



We remember that YHWH commanded that no bones were to be broken – hence this also was the commandment that no bone of YaShua was to be broken.

The Israelites were saved by YHWH. For it is written:

Exodus 12:12 “On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn--both men and animals--and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am YHWH your Elohim"



(Holding up the matzah plate)

Exodus 12:39 Why do we eat this unleavened bread? The dough did not have time to rise before YHWH revealed himself to them and redeemed them.

(Do not eat the Matzah at this time.)


MAROR (Horseradish) why do we eat bitter herbs? We eat bitter herbs because of the hardship that the Israelites had to bear. As it is written:

Exodus 1:14 They made their lives bitter with hard labor in brick and mortar and with all kinds of work in the fields; in all their hard labor the Egyptians used them ruthlessly.

(Everyone eat Matzah with Maror, bitter herbs.)


KORECH how we are to eat the Pesach

Exodus 12:11 this is how you are to eat the Passover: with your cloak tucked into your belt, your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand. Eat it in haste; it is YHWH's Passover.

Numbers 9:11 they are to celebrate it on the fourteenth day of the second month at twilight. They are to eat the lamb, together with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.


Third CUP (the cup of Redemption)

Fill your cup! This is the cup of Redemption

We do not drink at this time!


CHAROSET (the mortar we used to lay the bricks we made)

Charoset is a mixture of honey, apples, nuts, cinnamon, and wine. With this we see the sweetness of HIS mercy and grace.

- Let us now eat matzah, Charoset, and Maror and remember the bitterness /sweetness of the grace, mercy and love that YHWH has for each of us, for HE sent YaShua, our Messiah, to be our Passover Lamb. We too, like the Israelites released from the bondage of slavery, can be saved from the bondage of sin.

Eat the Matzah with Maror and Charoset.) with of course the wine!

How great is YHWH's goodness to us! For each of HIS acts of mercy and kindness we declare dayenu [die-YAY-new] - it would have been sufficient.


If YHWH had merely rescued us, but had not judged the Egyptians.


If HE had only destroyed their gods, but had not parted the Red Sea.


If HE had only drowned our enemies, but had not fed us with manna.


If HE had only led us through the desert, but had not given us the Sabbath.


If HE had only given us the Torah, but not the land of Israel.



A prayer. Break to eat the Passover Supper. LET’S EAT

Everyone returns to finish reading the Haggadah.

Save room for the dessert -- the Afikomen.

After dinner:

Lifting the Afikomen

We will now eat the Afikomen, the dessert. The taste of the Afikomen should linger in our mouths. It is about the Afikomen that YaShua said "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of Me." (Luke 22:19) The Passover cannot be completed without the Afikomen, nor can our redemption be complete without YaShua, the Bread of Life, and our Messiah!

Bless our Father for the Bread

(All eat the Afikomen)


THE 4th CUP Praise

Bless our Father for the wine

Fill your cup this fourth time! This is the Cup of Redemption, symbolizing the blood of the Passover Lamb. It was this cup "after supper", with which Yeshua identified himself –

Luke 22:20 “This cup is the new covenant in MY blood, which is poured out for you."


(Drink the fourth cup of wine.)


(Lifting the extra cup for Elijah)

If you’ve noticed, we have a place setting which no one used. This was set for Elijah who was to come before Messiah. An old tradition was to have a child get up and go open the door and look for Elijah who was to come ahead of Messiah. But in the Messianic redemption, we open the door, indicating our readiness to receive the Prophet Elijah, the herald of the Messiah. We must also now open our hearts to the truth.

Matthew who spoke of Yochanan the immerser;

Matthew 11:14And if you are willing to accept it, he is the Elijah who was to come."


This same Yochanan said;

Yochanan/John 1:29 it was John who saw YaShua and declared, "Look, the Lamb of YHWH, who takes away the sin of the world!"


NIRTZAH paid for, or pardoned

Yirmeyahu 31:31-34)

31 "The time is coming," declares YHWH, "when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.

32 It will not be like the covenant I made with their forefathers when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to them, “declares YHWH.

33 "This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time," declares YHWH. "I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their Elohim, and they will be my people.

34 No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, 'Know YHWH,' because they will all know ME, from the least of them to the greatest," declares YHWH. "For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more."


We have now finished our Passover Seder. I encourage each one of you to take the time during the remaining Passover holiday to read the story of Passover in Exodus. La-sha-nah ha-ba-'ah bi Yahrushalayim! Next year in Jerusalem!

** remember do not eat any leavened items for the next eight days.
