Isaac Or Ishmael?

Edited Study written the 4TH OF NOVEMBER 2017
Torah Portion: VAYERA "HE APPEARED" TORAH: GENESIS 18:1-22:24| PROPHETS : 2 KINGS 4:1-37 GOSPEL : LUKE 2:1-38 · Torah: Genesis 18:1-22:24 · Prophets: 2 Kings 4:1-37 ·
Gospel: Luke 2:1-38
I thank the Lord who gives me the revelations and teachings.
Genesis 18: 8 Then he took *curds, **milk and the ***calf which he had prepared, and set it all before the men; and he stood by them under the tree as they ate.
Metaphor: When the Lord visits us, the first time, ( His Spirit is touching us) We are soft as new born baby`s. But being prepared to receive the meat out of the word. As long as we stay under the Tree. ( His protection underneath His wings)
Do you want your Isaac -- the promise of G-d without your help-- or an Ishmael
- a promise of G-d but you create something with the help of fleshly way of thinking acting or support, so-called carnal solutions -
If you want to reach this deep faith you need MORE of HIM which is LESS of YOU!
So your first Isaac (miracle promise) represents the birth of the SON into your heart. A change from a heart of stone into a heart of flesh.
2 Kings 4: 18 When the child was old enough, he went out one day to be with his Father, who was with the reapers. 19 Suddenly he cried out to his Father, - "My head! My head hurts!" -
Metaphor for my head is filled with the pain and thoughts out of my flesh!
The war inside of our head between Spirit and Flesh.
His Kingdom and the World
2 kings 4: 29 Then Elisha said to Geichazi, "Get dressed for action, take my staff in your hand, and be on your way. If you meet anyone, don't greet him; if anyone greets you, don't answer; and lay my staff on the child's face."
30 The mother of the child said, "As Adonai lives, and as you live, I will not leave you. He got up and followed her. 31 Geichazi went on ahead of them and laid the staff on the child's face, but there was no sound or sign of life. So he went back to Elisha and told him, "The child didn't wake up." Meaning of Geichazi "valley of vision," servant of Elisha גֵּיחֲזִי :Word
Original Is a metaphor spiritual speaking:
The Staff represents for us: PRAYER Geichazi means: (Hebrew: גֵּיחֲזִי; Tiberian: Gêḥăzî; Standard: Geẖazi; "valley of vision") During prayer, we are in the valley of vision we know HIS promise (s), and we see it on our spiritual eyes!
The servant of Elisha laid the staff on the face of the child, meaning:
You can pray, but if you are not living in the Spirit only, without any form of fleshly thinking, you will not move, you will not see miracles you are still asleep!
When the Ruach Ha'Kodesh speaks through you, not one word will come back in vain! Please understand when you come to the end of self, you die spiritual speaking Yeshua will give you the breath of life!
But Our way of THINKING needs to stop and must change in HIS way of thinking the mind of Christ (Yeshua) before we can adequately walk and live in the Spirit altogether. If you pray out of your flesh instead of out of the Spirit, you still are not living in the Spirit, and fruit is not there.
"The child didn't wake up." There is more to say about this, but I feel I need to leave it upon here in this teaching.
32 When Elisha reached the house, there, the child was dead and laid on the bed. 33 He went in, shut the door on the two of them and prayed to Adonai.
34 Then he got up on the bed and lay on top of the child, putting his mouth on his mouth, his eyes on his eyes, and his hands on his hands.
35 Then he went down, walked around in the house awhile, went back up, and stretched himself out on the child again.
As he stretched himself out on the child, its flesh began to grow warm.
Is a metaphor spiritual speaking:
Yeshua's mouth <> HIS word must come out of your mouth (changing your way of thinking into the mind of Christ (Yeshua) His hands His Eyes covered totally with the Son and HIS Ruach Ha'kodesh (His Spirit)
Through prayer and Biblical teachings - studies turning away from the world pressing in to His Kingdom.
The child sneezed seven times, then opened his eyes.
Is a Metaphor spiritual speaking:
Walking around in the house as walking around the walls of Jericho The walls of our heart need to tumble down. So we pray and pray and listen to Him as He will reveal certain roots that need to be removed.
5-Fold ministers have the task to help serve the ones who need to take this journey to change from newborn baby's into adult sheep!
Hebrew 12: 4 God Disciplines His Children >> 4 In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. <<5 And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son?
It says, "My son, do not make light of the Lord's discipline and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, 6 because the Lord disciplines the one, he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son." [a] So Yeshua said to them again, "Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you." And when He had said this, He breathed on them and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained." (John 20:21-23)
Book of Acts 2: 1 The festival of Shavu'ot arrived, and the believers all gathered together in one place.
2 Suddenly there came a sound from the sky like the roar of a violent wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 Then they saw what looked like tongues of fire, which separated and came to rest on each one of them. 4 They were all filled with the Ruach Ha'kodesh and began to talk in different languages, as the Spirit enabled them to speak.
HIS FIRE CAME, AND THEY SPOKE HIS HEAVENLY LANGUAGE THEY WERE BAPTIZED IN HIS GLORY
Shavu'ot/ʃəˈvuːəs; -əʊs; Hebrew ʃavuːˈɔt/ noun 1. the Hebrew name for Pentecost (sense 2) Word Origin from Hebrew shābhū'ōth, plural of shābhūā` <><><> meaning week (s)
Deuteronomy 16: 9 "You are to count seven weeks; you are to begin counting seven weeks from the time you first put your sickle to the standing grain. ( Shavuot and /or Pentecost)
You who received the Holy Spirit when you repented converted and were baptized will also be baptized in HIS Spirit after a period (The so-called "seven weeks") of being cleansed and purified and going through the process of dying to self!
There comes an end to this process, as promised in Isaiah 28.
When crushing grain for bread, one doesn't thresh it forever; one drives the horse and cartwheels over it but doesn't crush it to powder. 29 This, too, comes from ADONAI-Tzva'ot - his counsel is wonderful, his wisdom great. Yeshua our bread of life will serve through us so as a metaphor the Father is baking a bread of us all sons (male and female) who will carry the SON inside of them without any hindrance of the flesh) that's why He will not purify us in such way that we are not able to serve HIM! This process will come to an end. We will walk although a CRUCIFIED life HIS way not ours HIS glory not ours HIS work not ours! Hebrew meaning of seven:
The seventh letter of the Hebrew alphabet is called "Zayin" (pronounced "ZAH-yeen")
1. Zayin and the Mystery behind it Zayin a "crowned" Vav. Vav represents "yashar," straight light from G-d to man, Zayin represents returning light. the 7th letter is the crown of Vav.
We are a crown in the hands of Yeshua The crown of HIS WORK INSIDE OF US!
2. The Gematria of Zayin The gematria of the word Zayin is 67, same value for binah, which means understanding. Psalm 67, God our God can bless us!! By our obedience and unity ( HIS LOVE) unity with HIM and with our brothers and sisters) Psalm 67: 6 The earth has yielded its harvest; may God, our God, bless us.7 May God continue to bless us, so that all the ends of the earth will fear (respect and honor) him. <<<>>> Which is …BEGINNING of wisdom
3. Zayin Zayin "weapon" or "sword," coming from a root word that means "sustenance" or "nourishment." The root -zan- appears in words like mazon, which means "food."
The word for bread, lechem, is contained in the Hebrew word for war, milchamah: Yeshua, our bread of life, bringing THE SWORD, which represents the word which divides flesh and Spirit! The war between our flesh and HIS Spirit Yeshua / Jesus was telling the disciples that He came not to bring peace to the world, but a sword.
4. The number seven has always been regarded in the Jewish tradition as the number of completions, wholeness, blessing, and rest. Summary: Isaac also represents Yeshua; if you want to have THE SON in your life, then you need to come to the end of self. That vision is in your heart that promise you believe without a shadow of a doubt while you pray and wait and fight against the sin in your life.
Hebrew 4:12 until Yeshua can give you the breath of life! When we convert and are baptized in water, we will receive the Holy Spirit, but the more we die to self the deeper HIS breath, HIS will and voice become the center of our lives! When the disciples were death to self and were in unity, the FIRE of the Lord came and gave them the power to heal the sick and raise the dead! Shabbat 7th day a day of rest while the Lord of Shabbat Yeshua was healing people.
Meaning for us: this set-aside day of the Lord is the perfect day for us to receive deeper healing and growth while we study the Torah, which contains vitamins for our souls! On Shabbat when we have our meetings, Yeshua will serve through one of His chosen vessels to give a "double portion" ** of His breath to bring us deeper in His Ruach.
2 Kings 4:35 walked around in the house awhile, went back up and stretched himself out on the child again. (twice)
The child sneezed seven*** times, then opened his eyes. ** We are in complete rest while our Savior appears and will bring
2. Deliverance= 2 blessings double portion of His breath
*** Seven has always been regarded in the Jewish tradition as the number of completions, wholeness, blessing, and rest. (End of fleshly thinking and behavior)
The woman healed on Shabbat:
Luke 13: Yeshua Heals a Crippled Woman on the Sabbath
10 On a Sabbath Yeshua was teaching in one of the synagogues, 11 and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen**** years.
She was bent over and could not straighten up at all.
12 When Yeshua saw her, he called her forward and said to her, "Woman, you are set free from your infirmity."
13 Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God.
Metaphor spiritually speaking: Crippled as in not completely walking in the Holy Spirit because of own fleshly way of thinking and speaking and so on. A Worldly Spirit!
He heals us as HIS Bride who has two legs:
Jew and Gentile Believers Male and Female Free and Slave ONE in HIS Ruach ONE NEW MAN! So the Lord is also using the women to share HIS word.
Jeremiah 31: 22 How long will you hesitate, you, unruly daughter?
For ADONAI has created something new on earth: a woman with the strengths of a man. Promise also for Yerushalayim, but for sure for HIS daughters of Sion!
23 Here is what ADONAI-Tzva'ot, the God of Isra'el, says:
"This expression will be used again in the land of Y'hudah and its cities after I have returned their exiles: 'May ADONAI bless you, home of justice, holy mountain!'
**** Eighteen is the number of times HaShem's Name is mentioned in the shema ( prayer)
Thanks to the Jewish and Hebrew teachings that I have been reading for many years and through different sources and ministries, which gave me insight into the secrets behind the Hebrew letters. There comes a time you have the studies in your head and heart, and I cannot mention all of them, and trust me, there have been a lot! But again, Toda Raba to all of you!
