McCain born and dies on Sabbath, ‘When you go out to war’. 82 years to the day!

The Man Always Warring!  Born August 29 1936…Died August 26, 2018.. 81 years.  

On the Hebrew calendar he completed 82 years as he died the day he was born.

14 Elul 1936 to 14 Elul 2018 =  82 exact to-the-day years

His Life Verses without a question are:   Ki Tetze – When you go out to war…when you capture prisoners…  He was a prisoner of war!  He remained a prisoner within himself.

An except in this article:

He had a list of people he did NOT want at his funeral.   His childish ways were not of God’s ways of unity.  Even unto death this man cursed his fellowman and his very own King/President of the United States.  He elevated himself above God’s appointed man of whom Scripture tells us to honor.  Thus, this man did not know God…nor could give Him thanks because he didn’t know God’s instructions…which were completely and totally laid out for him on the day he was born and the day he died…  Such a sad man!

 

Born 1936 – Released from Vietnam captivity at age 36.    Five (Hei) behold…grace.. and one half years later in 1973 he is released.  (This is the year American approved Abortion).

The ‘Traditions of Adonai’ show up on our earth through men and creation.   We are told that Moses died on the day he was born.  His 7 Adar now connects him and The Torah to be raised up on the earth.   He was never buried and looks glorious after being with Adonai in The Tent of Meeting for 40 years in The Wilderness.

Mosch is a picture of Yeshua Jesus that is raised up to help Abraham’s family move forward.   The Book of Deuteronomy was spoken was Moses in his last thirty days of life.   It is written as a summary of their 40 Year Wilderness experience with Adonai’s presence appearing through the form of a cloud of smoke by day and a pillar of fire at night.  Their camp was always  lite up and seen as glorious from a distance.

The month of Elul is known as The King is in the Field.  We have patterns that show men that were allowed to be kings of our earth being born and died in this month.  This man is one of those persons even labeled as, ‘son of a king.’  God’s plan for his being held captive all points to The King that he should have pointed to during his life.  We are to be consumed with God’s heavenly country and NOT our own country…as all countries are but a vapor .. and will pass away as the REAL City is set upon the earth in the “Eighth’ Day.  We could almost look at the number 82 and see the timing of when it can happen.

Eight means ‘new beginning’ and two is beit for house…  New Beginning for house/Temple….New heaven and refined earth is what Adonai tells us.

Month Two Day Seventeen

Cheshvan 17 shows up as a pattern connecting Adam and Noach.  It is Adam’s ‘day of deception’ also recorded as Noach’s “Day of the Great Deluge’ beginning on Month Two Day 17 (Cheshvan 17).

We find several Patriarch’s resembling The Suffering Servant; ie. Isaac, Yacov, Yosef, and even our current Isaac Newton.   We see patterns in normal men that are molded in certain ways that seem to follow in lawless ways.

As the study of Ki Tetze on August 25, 2018 concluded and the Sabbath rest closed for many to sleep a restful night, a man of celebrity status left the earth.   Let’s have you guess who this man is as his story is told in this writing.

I believe we can control our death to a certain point.  Aretha was one of them that I believe did this as she died of Pancreas cancer.  We lost a friend one year ago today of Pancreas cancer and I saw him control his last breathe as to when all who wanted to visit him had done so.

Celebrity One -Aretha Franklin – Dies August 16, 2018; 3 Elul

She chose to close her eyes peacefully on the day that Elvis Presley closed his eyes in stress.   Thus, history will always remember Aretha Franklin and Elvis Presley as being The Queen of Soul and Queen of Rock and The King of Rock dying on the same day of August 16.  And, their paths were similar with beginning careers singing church songs with their parents being their agents.

Today Senator McCain, an 82-year old celebrity died in a perplexing way.  I doubt if even he understood what day he died.  But, The Creator certainly knew the day of his birth and his death.  It was Ki Tetze….’when you go out to war’.  Yes, it as the same exact Sabbath date and same Sabbath reading…Ki Tetze.  And, this man did go out to war and continued in war with others.
As we read today the many comments about him we learn he was defiant as a young child who learned to hold his breath…not fearing death…and would turn blue until he got his way. His 81 years of life remained in derision even at the end as he announced several people who were NOT to come to his funeral.

His father and grandfather were high ranking Navy men and it was appointed by them that he should follow in their footsteps. He retaliated by scoring 50 from the bottom of his class at The Naval Academy at Annapolis.

He writes in one of his three books that at about age 22 he accepted the fact that his life would be of one in the military.  He then finds himself accepted in the political arena and ascends to run for President of the United States several times.

His year of birth caught my attention as 36 again showed up as the age that he would be released from being a prisoner of war.

HOLOCAUST – Born to War

In 1936 the Holocaust was beginning with camps being built. Three plus six equals nine…the letter tet. The letter ‘tet’ is represented by a picture of a basket. It means to surround, snake. It’s a hard thing to describe the number 36 but this man’s life has reinforced it’s meaning. He was released from his 5.5 years of torture camp at age 36. He would have four years to find a new start at the age of forty.  He will complete 80 years which show us two sections of 40 years that he is assigned to live.

The world was twisting and turning in 1936 as the years known as The Holocaust were beginning. The children born in these years were the children that possibly would die in several wars around the earth. These years would give birth to The Nation of Israel by 1948 after seven years of WWII (1938-1945). But, still this man was just a little boy witnessing the horrifics of war and death through his parents eyes that were active Navy military.

In 1967 America was heavily involved in a war that at first was thought to be a ‘quick in and a quick out’ war.   Vietnam was not an easy terrain.  Soldiers returning were not praised for their bravery as protesters almost spit on them for serving in it.  America’s children were tired of fighting other countries wars.   Today Americans still hate war but join it so it stops coming to our own borders.  Wishing it away does not work.  American people do support all of their soldiers as war heroes today.

America was militarily busy with Vietnam when the Arabs closed The Straits of Hormuz.  Israel had America’s permission to go to war but without America’s military support. Adonai put Israel in their own ‘dire straits’ so He could prove He was their living God. SIX days of miracles and Egypt retreated after their airfields were quickly and completely destroyed. Adonai showed Israel that they did NOT need America. ADONAI designs everything on this earth and bring every man to where he is in order to complete His purposes.

6 7 67

God Fought for Israel Six Days and Rested on The Sabbath (7)

June 7, 1967 (Iyyar 6) after only SIX days of miraculous fighting, the Six Day War would give Jerusalem back into the hands of Israel on 6.7.1967.

THEN

At the Fast of Tammuz 17 America’s Forrester would be smitten!

(Jacob Left Laban at year 20)

This man is smitten for the first time at The Fast of Tammuz (worship of Golden Calf) * Tammuz 21 1967…but miraculously survives!

July 29, 1967 – America’s Super carrier Forrester self-damaged. 20 planes destroyed as their own pilot released a missile while on board. 134 die…(not 135…the number of blessing.)

July 29 1967 was Tammuz 21 1967 – Sabbath Mattot (tribes) July 29, 1967.

“On July 29, 1967 having flown five uneventful bombing runs over North Vietnam, he was preparing for takeoff when a missile accidentally fired from a nearby fighter struck the fuel tank of his A-4 Sky hawk, ________ wrote in his memoir. It set off explosions and a fire that killed 134 crewmen, destroyed more than 20 planes and disabled the ship so severely that it took two years to repair.”

Who is He?

BORN 1936 * Released from Hanoi Hilton Prison Age 36

Born on Sabbath Ki Tetze – (When you go out to war)

Died on Sabbath Ki Tetze – (When you go out to war)

Hanoi called him the Crown Prince since he was a son of a king (Admiral of Navy). After one year his father had gained control of the fleet and had secured his release in 1968. The ‘crown prince’ refused the release. He knew it would be degrading to his family for him to be released before other prisoners who had been there before him.

After five and one-half years of captivity he is released. His infidelities to his wife would cause a divorce even though he had a daughter of six years old with his wife. He had adopted her two sons that she brought to the marriage.  He will marry her in 1965 and is captured in 1967 for five and one-half years.  He does not get to build a family with them until 1973 and then they divorce.

If this man had been taught that the whole Bible was for him to keep (keep safe) and that he should apply those parts that he could he would have known what day he was born and saw God in his life.  He would have studied the Parshah Ki Tetze and know the regulations on marriage and not defile his marriage bed.  He would NOT have divorced his wife but instead repented and ask forgiveness.  Torah tells us how to live in harmony with each other.

He was birthed on the Sabbath Ki Tetze and he died on that very same special Sabbath Torah reading.   Ki Tetze is the full ‘instruction manual’ on marriage, divorce and how to live out your life in safety.   This man lived in anger for 36 years and still did find resolve after turning forty.   He was only aware of what was ‘right in his own eyes.’

Deu 22:22 “If a man is found sleeping with a woman who has a husband, both of them must die — the man who went to bed with the woman and the woman too. In this way you will expel such wickedness from Isra’el

 

God at WAR for His bride.

Deu 22:22 Beit Beit Beit Beit – The house house house house can NOT stand in derision.

Heaven’s wedding table is for the pure in heart.

Captured: Tishrei 22 – Shimini Atzeret8th Day Feast Sukkot

Captured Oct. 26, 1967

Released: 1973

36 Years Old

 

EIGHT-Two years and now released from suffering and embitterment.  Physically challenged and mentally exhausted he died of brain cancer. His life was about what was on his mind and it often could not see any others views.  His physical death was also about his mind.   We will die with the sword that we used in life.

He had a list of people he did NOT want at his funeral.   His childish ways were not of God’s ways of unity.  Even unto death this man cursed his fellowman and his very own president of the United States.  He elevated himself above God’s appointed man of whom Scripture tells us to honor.  Thus, this man did not know God…nor could give Him thanks because he didn’t know God’s instructions…which were completely and totally laid out for him on the day he was born and the day he died…  Such a sad man!

As a child he would hold his breathe until he turned black and passed out if he didn’t get his way. The doctor told his parents to drop him into a tub of ice water.

Adonai holds a ‘record of life’ for every human born.  He knows every persons date of birth and their scheduled departure.   Men devise their way on earth, but it is Adonai that directs his path.   It is man that changes course even though he has heard and believed in The Blood of The One that atoned for our sin,Yeshua the Messiah.   But, many say that The Messiach has come and gone and is taking too long to return.   Thus, they choose to define God’s word according to their thinking.

We remove our names from the Bride’s Guest Book to the ‘Wedding Banquet’.  We change to improper clothing so The Groom does not recognize us at The Banquet. Those not clothed in the garments provided will be ask to leave. The garment provided matches the one wore by The Groom himself…and some have a corner that has been dipped in blood because of their martyrdom for His sake…
This man wrote in his books:

“I still wince when I recall wondering if my father had heard of my disgrace,” ________ wrote. “The Vietnamese had broken the prisoner they called the ‘Crown Prince,’ and I knew they had done it to hurt the man they believed to be a king.”
Would our memoir read the same? Will we stand before our Father in disgrace for denying Him? The forces of our world continue to put doubt in our minds that our Father does not have mercy and grace for us. It says that we can never match up to the standards set by The Creator.   Our Creator is not like our human parents that expect so much from us that we’d rather sign up for dangerous missions and die….hoping to be someone’s hero.
Yes….the man born in 1936, released from captivity at age 36 and died at age 82 on the same day he was born…Sabbath Ki Tetze…when you go out to war….winced that his own father heard of his disgrace..but how much more now that he stands before Adonai the Creator. It is our Creator that we should ‘wince’ if we stand before Him in disgrace for going against His instructions while on this earth.  We are to be at peace with our enemies.

This child born in 1936 was told what to do when he was called to war.  Right there on the day he was born he was given the instructions…and on the day he finished his course in life…he was reminded of his life.  We are reminded of our lives and how we should have lived in order to be pleasing to the one who brought our creation about.
These same instructions have applied for Adam, Noach, Abraham, Isaac, Ya’cov, Joseph, David and Yeshua…Mathew, Mark, Luke and John…Isaac Newton, President Trump and all who are privileged to walk this earth.

Have you guessed the name of the 82 year old man that died on August 25, 2018 in Sedona, Arizona?  His new name is the only important thing Adonai was concerned about.  He wanted him to trust in Him and not in his own self-will of survival.

Adam’s wife Chanoh was set in the Gan of Eden on her 82nd day of creation.  Noach’s wife Emzara who is noted as being 82 years older than him.  Mosche was birthing a bride at age 82 preparing them at Mt. Sinai.  Mosch had three sets of forty years for us to learn from.   And, now this man was allowed to live exactly 82 years and not a day longer.  This is a time allotted to be ‘consecrated’ to Adonai.  It is time enough to decide how you’ll finish your course on this side of the veil…of eternity.

Mosch also died on the day he was born, Adar 7. He had three sets of forty years given to him so he lived to 120 years.    Mosche may have killed a man at age 36 and by age 40 he had left for Median where he found a bride.   He had killed a man in Egypt and was then exiled himself to a foreign land for forty years. By age 80 Moch returned to his family and selflessly begged his family of Israelites to follow him into a desert in order to worship The Creator as had been done by Abraham.
In The Eighth Day of our earth men will be invited to dwell in a new place…called The New Heaven and Earth. It will come down and sit upon the earth looking like a 1500 sq mile box…known as a phylactery as Orthodox Jews wear today. These men are set apart on the earth for that purpose…to point to the future. It is their path Adonai has set for them and they have accepted it. It has brought insult and many times injury and death to those that wear it.

2Pe 3:3 First, understand this: during the Last Days, scoffers will come, following their own desires
2Pe 3:4 and asking, “Where is this promised ‘coming’ of his? For our fathers have died, and everything goes on just as it has since the beginning of creation.”

2Pe 3:5 But, wanting so much to be right about this, they overlook the fact that it was by God’s Word that long ago there were heavens, and there was land which arose out of water and existed between the waters,
2Pe 3:6 and that by means of these things the world of that time was flooded with water and destroyed.
2Pe 3:7 It is by that same Word that the present heavens and earth, having been preserved, are being kept for fire until the Day of Judgment, when ungodly people will be destroyed.
2Pe 3:8 Moreover, dear friends, do not ignore this: with the Lord, one day is like a thousand years and a thousand years like one day

 

This is Yeshua Jesus speaking………as the Spirit led Yeshua up into the wilderness to be tempted by the Adversary….after 40 days and 40 nights he was hungry…

Mat 4:3 The Tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, order these stones to become bread.”

Mat 4:4 But he answered, “The Tanakh says, ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of Adonai’ ”

The Torah is bread from God.

Mat 4:14 This happened in order to fulfill what Yesha`yahu the prophet had said,

Mat 4:15 “Land of Z’vulun and land of Naftali, toward the lake, beyond the Yarden, Galil-of-the-Goyim —

Mat 4:16 the people living in darkness have seen a great light; upon those living in the region, in the shadow of death, light has dawned.”

Mat 4:17 From that time on, Yeshua began proclaiming, “Turn from your sins to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near!”

In Matthew 5 Yeshua is teaching The Beatitudes… Blessed are they that…… In these beautiful words of encouragement we see Yeshua confirming The Torah in all of what the prophets had always said.

Is the Torah done away with? The word ‘fulfill’ in some Bibles has led people to believe it is done away with. Jesus is called, The Living Word…the Living Torah…the Living Instructions. Torah can mean ‘legislation’ or ‘instruction’ depending on the context. Torah is also used as ‘tutor’. Moses was the people’s tutor and he even became as The Torah…The Tutor…The Instructor…meaning The Seat of Moses is really The Seat of The Torah. It will Yeshua Jesus that sit on The Seat of Mosch directing all in Torah.

Mat 5:17 “Don’t think that I have come to abolish the Torah or the Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to complete. (fill it up to it’s ultimate worship of God)

Mat 5:18 Yes indeed! I tell you that until heaven and earth pass away, not so much as a yud ( י ) or a stroke will pass from the Torah — not until everything that must happen has happened.

Mat 5:19 So whoever disobeys the least of these mitzvot and teaches others to do so will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But whoever obeys them and so teaches will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Mat 5:20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness is far greater than that of the Torah-teachers and P’rushim, you will certainly not enter the Kingdom of Heaven!

What we realize is that not one ‘mark’ or ‘stroke’ will be removed from The Torah. In fact, those doing the commandments and teaching others to obey will be called ‘great’ in the Kingdom of Heaven.

This next point is not hard to understand but it is a difficult standard to accept. And yet, it is logical thinking for those that do NOT desire to obey the mitzvot of God. And it is another thing to understand this verse yet deeper because it is real trouble for those that not only don’t believe in obeying The commandments of God, but they are actively teaching others that they are ‘no longer’ important to our lives.

Mat 5:19 So whoever disobeys the least of these mitzvot and teaches others to do so will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven.

It makes sense that they would be least or ‘lighter’. God will no longer have his children around those that try to discourage them in their walking out their lives according to God’s standards. Lot and Abraham had to live ‘in’ the world around them. They were the beginning that would forge nations that saw ‘The Living’ Elohim act upon the earth.

Lot’s two daughters had the Moabite and the Amorite clans. These clans forgot about Abraham helping them 500 years earlier in the days of Abraham fighting the five northern kings for them.   Lot’s children would not let them cross through their lands as they came out of Egypt. God would deal with Lot’s children in anther forty years after the Isralite wilderness group of adults died off.    The children would be trained and know how to live on the other side.  It took forty years to train them and they moved thirty-nine times.  The 40th move was into the land.

Lots children would actually be removed by other clans and then they would fight amongst themselves destroying each other. We see this same thing in our world today. Israel grew to be powerful in the wilderness then and they have grown in the ‘wilderness’ of the world today. They are still returning to claim the land that is promised them from The Creator even via the time of Adam. God is patient but men are not.

So, what does least or lighter mean? What does great mean?

The weightier matters indicate things that lead to eternity…they are the heavier matters. Those that take life lightly, God will take lightly until at one point He no longer hears them and they actually don’t even remember when they stopped talking to Him.

Mat 5:20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness is far greater than that of the Torah-teachers and P’rushim, you will certainly not enter the Kingdom of Heaven!

The Torah-teachers and P’rushim are the Sadducee and Pharisees. They had built the instructions up so high that it was very difficult to think that you could be part of the Kingdom of God. They built the walls up so high so if man broke a few then at least they hadn’t broken the foundation of Torah…was the leaders hope. Today, we are totally different by completely digging up the foundation and carried it off to the dump.

‘Adults have to return with the brain of a child. Our brains now get cancer as we no longer think of who created us and his purpose for our lives. We are told be become a new ‘wineskins’ whereas ‘old’ wineskins break when new teachings/wine are put in them.

Life should be as simple as a child picking up the Bible and reading it and obeying it. There does not have to be lots of teachers expressing their ideas on which parts are for us today and which parts do not apply to us today.

It is simple to read and it says that certain things are done when you’re in the land and some things can only apply to a woman and some only apply to men or the Levite priests. We take the parts that we can apply. And, we can look deeper into these things and see the past present and future spiritual applications of God’s words to us.

There is not one instruction that Yeshua Jesus gives that was not first presented in The Torah. He even quotes The Tanakh… the words of the prophets after Mosch.

Words by Yeshua Jesus:

Mat 5:20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness is far greater than that of the Torah-teachers and P’rushim, you will certainly not enter the Kingdom of Heaven!

And, then he confirms this statement by listing the things in The Torah that they already knew. It does not list the tithing on the spice cumin or the ‘washing of temple pots’ as those were just a few of the new fences that had been added over the hundreds of years. Yeshua goes back to the ways that Abraham, Isaac and Ya’cov taught their children. Then more was added as they come out of Egypt because there are more people with more situations that needed more legislation to live happily together.

Today, we must accept The Torah as the way of living on the earth. It teaches us how to live when Yeshua Jesus returns as The Messiach to the earth. He will return when Torah is back on the earth. He will return when the time of the Gentile trodding down the earth is done. Is it when the last Gentile turns to Torah that they then will also stop putting their own idols on the earth. The earth is God’ footstool and he will reign from Yerusalyem.

The Jew will recognize Yeshua by looking at His pierced hands as this is written in The Scriptures. Most Bibles are not printed in the Hebrew language and therefore some could say that the ‘yuds and tittles’ have been removed. The Hebrew language is now being printed right next to the other languages.

We are learning not to be a Solomon of whom changed The Torah claiming himself to be so wise that in changing it he would not be hurt.

Solomon avoided writing out the Torah every year and reading it to the people every seven years. He voided the principle of not having many wives and horses which voided his trust in Adonai to supply his every need. We are NOT to depend on other nations for survival. It is the living out of The Torah in our lives that keeps us save in our world today. It is our spiritual well-being that God is interested in as life is just a vapor.

Mat 5:21 “You have heard that our fathers were told, ‘Do not murder,’ and that anyone who commits murder will be subject to judgment.

Mat 5:22 But I tell you that anyone who nurses anger against his brother will be subject to judgment; that whoever calls his brother, ‘You good-for-nothing!’ will be brought before the Sanhedrin; that whoever says, ‘Fool!’ incurs the penalty of burning in the fire of Gei-Hinnom!

Let us close with ‘When you come’

The next Torah portion is Parshah 50: Ki Tavo (When you come) Deuteronomy 26:1-29:8 (9)  September 1, 2018.  Soon it will be Feast of Trumpets on September 10, 2018.  The King is calling little kings out…clearing the land…so God’s children who desire to walk in His ways are allowed to.  Israel is the ‘first fruits’ on the earth today.  We will worship Him in the place He tells us.

Deu 26:1 “When you have come to the land Adonai your God is giving you as your inheritance, taken possession of it and settled there;

Deu 26:2 you are to take the first fruits of all the crops the ground yields, which you will harvest from your land that Adonai your God is giving you, put them in a basket and go to the place where Adonai your God will choose to have his name live.
Adonai is returning to the place He has determined on our earth. He has his inheritance with him…He is our inheritance and he is going to settle Himself as our first fruit on the earth.

The Messiach is the only one that can do Torah perfectly. Thus, when we accept The One that can do it perfectly because He came as God in the flesh and sacrificed himself to the point of death, then The Torah can be lived out in our lives…giving us joy as we live in it. It is the way that God has chosen for us to be ‘like Him’.

Rev 3:5 He who wins the victory will, like them, be dressed in white clothing; and I will not blot his name out of the Book of Life; in fact, I will acknowledge him individually before my Father and before his angels.

2Pe 3:1 Dear friends, I am writing you now this second letter; and in both letters I am trying to arouse you to wholesome thinking by means of reminders;

2Pe 3:2 so that you will keep in mind the predictions of the holy prophets and the command given by the Lord and Deliverer through your emissaries.

2Pe 3:3 First, understand this: during the Last Days, scoffers will come, following their own desires

2Pe 3:4 and asking, “Where is this promised ‘coming’ of his? For our fathers have died, and everything goes on just as it has since the beginning of creation.”

2Pe 3:5 But, wanting so much to be right about this, they overlook the fact that it was by God’s Word that long ago there were heavens, and there was land which arose out of water and existed between the waters,

2Pe 3:6 and that by means of these things the world of that time was flooded with water and destroyed.

2Pe 3:7 It is by that same Word that the present heavens and earth, having been preserved, are being kept for fire until the Day of Judgment, when ungodly people will be destroyed.

2Pe 3:8 Moreover, dear friends, do not ignore this: with the Lord, one day is like a thousand years and a thousand years like one day

2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some people think of slowness; on the contrary, he is patient with you; for it is not his purpose that anyone should be destroyed, but that everyone should turn from his sins.

2Pe 3:10 However, the Day of the Lord will come “like a thief.” On that Day the heavens will disappear with a roar, the elements will melt and disintegrate, and the earth and everything in it will be burned up.

2Pe 3:11 Since everything is going to be destroyed like this, what kind of people should you be? You should lead holy and godly lives,

2Pe 3:12 as you wait for the Day of God and work to hasten its coming. That Day will bring on the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt from the heat;

2Pe 3:13 but we, following along with his promise, wait for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness will be at home.

2Pe 3:14 Therefore, dear friends, as you look for these things, do everything you can to be found by him without spot or defect and at peace.

2Pe 3:15 And think of our Lord’s patience as deliverance, just as our dear brother Sha’ul also wrote you, following the wisdom God gave him.

2Pe 3:16 Indeed, he speaks about these things in all his letters. They contain some things that are hard to understand, things which the uninstructed and unstable distort, to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures.

2Pe 3:17 But you, dear friends, since you know this in advance, guard yourselves; so that you will not be led away by the errors of the wicked and fall from your own secure position.

2Pe 3:18 And keep growing in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Deliverer, Yeshua the Messiah. To him be the glory, both now and forever! Amen.

Deu 16:19 You are not to distort justice or show favoritism, and you are not to accept a bribe, for a gift blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of even the upright.

Deu 16:20 Justice, only justice, you must pursue; so that you will live and inherit the land Adonai your God is giving you.

 

Parashah 48: Shoftim (Judges) Deuteronomy 16:18-21:9 begins with

Deu 16:18 “You are to appoint judges and officers for all your gates [in the cities] Adonai your God is giving you, tribe by tribe; and they are to judge the people with righteous judgment.

It closes with:

Deu 21:8 Adonai, forgive your people Isra’el, whom you redeemed; do not allow innocent blood to be shed among your people Isra’el.’ And they will be forgiven this bloodshed.

Deu 21:9 Thus you will banish the shedding of innocent blood from among you, by doing what Adonai sees as right.

Deu 21:10When you go out to war against your enemies, and Adonai your God hands them over to you, and you take prisoners,

Closing verses Ki Tetze:

Deu 25:15 You are to have a correct and fair weight, and you are to have a correct and fair measure, so that you will prolong your days in the land Adonai your God is giving you.

Deu 25:16 For all who do such things, all who deal dishonestly, are detestable to Adonai your God.

Deu 25:17 “Remember what `Amalek did to you on the road as you were coming out of Egypt,

Deu 25:18 how he met you by the road, attacked those in the rear, those who were exhausted and straggling behind when you were tired and weary. He did not fear God.

Deu 25:19 Therefore, when Adonai your God has given you rest from all your surrounding enemies in the land Adonai your God is giving you as your inheritance to possess, you are to blot out all memory of `Amalek from under heaven. Don’t forget!
