Parshah 39 – Hukkat (purification) Regulation
Numbers 19:1 – 22:1
It is the year 2022. This Parshah covers the first verse of Number 22.
Num 22:1 Then the people of Isra’el traveled on and camped in the plains of Mo’av beyond the Yarden River, opposite Yericho.
After being given instructions on how to be ‘clean’ before ADONAI, they now move to a new location. But they do NOT move until they have been attacked and seen the power of God on them. We will soon learn about the king of the Moabites and how assimilation ends up being the answer to get rid of Israel.
Today, the same tactics are being used as mankind has deemed that The Torah is not for today. They don’t care that in 1948 Israel returned to The Land. They don’t want to learn the stories of the ‘journeys of the ‘tribes’. The lives these people lived out to be an example for us are to be hidden because of an agenda of ‘disbelief’. How can a modern-day world live in a post-modern state?
Last week the Parshah read all over the world was about Korach and 250 leaders that died in a fire. Their bodies were ashes and carried outside the camp. But their firepans were hammed to make a covering for The Ark that resided inside the Tabernacle. Aharon will become prideful, and I removed, but his rod will remain inside the ark as a testimony against them of wanting to choose their own leaders. It was Aharon rod that budded. It was Moses somber personality that was desired and remained another forty years with them. He was The Teacher of The Torah of which is called, The Seat of Mosche.
The lessons are learned out of order. It’s like watching a movie that shows you a scene and then shows you the events that happened three weeks earlier.
In Numbers 9:1, Parshah 36 we see ADONAI speaking to Moses in the ‘second year first month’. They are learning how to perform the first Seder. Why are they still in the desert learning this? Because the time of testing is done. They are now ready to concentrate on what The Temple will be like through their 39- year experience of schlepping the tabernacle around. How many times did they move? Final move was 6 x 7: 42, when they cross into The Land promised to Abraham 430 years earlier at Isaac’s birth. The 42nd Parshah is called, Mattot (tribes) Numbers 30:1-32:42. The tribes are given instructions if they make a vow. Then YHWH gives them instruction to make a vow to take vengeance on the Midyanim. After that Moses will be gathered to his people (die). Numbers 31:1.
Moses will fast forty days and forty nights three times their first year. They could have gone into TPL (the promised land) on Day Eleven, but they argued that they wanted to see it first. Moses should have told them…Just go!! But he allowed them to go in a check it out. This was a BIG mistake on Mosch’s part that cost them forty more years outside The Promised Land. And yet, perhaps ‘the occupiers of The Land iniquity was not quite filled to its peak…and thus after forty years it would be. We should always trust YHWH’s timing.
The Death of Miriam – First year First month – 10 Nisan
Num 20:1 The people of Isra’el, the whole community, entered the Tzin Desert in the first month, and they stayed in Kadesh. There Miryam died, and there she was buried.
The Waters of Meribah
Num 20:2 Because the community had no water, they assembled themselves against Moshe and Aharon.
Num 20:7 Adonai said to Moshe,
Num 20:8 “Take the staff, assemble the community, you and Aharon your brother; and before their eyes, tell the rock to produce its water. You will bring them water out of the rock and thus enable the community and their livestock to drink.”
Num 20:9 Moshe took the staff from the presence of Adonai, as he had ordered him.
Moses Strikes the Rock
Num 20:10 But after Moshe and Aharon had assembled the community in front of the rock, he said to them, “Listen here, you rebels! Are we supposed to bring you water from this rock?”
Num 20:11 Then Moshe raised his hand and hit the rock twice with his staff. Water flowed out in abundance, and the community and their livestock drank.
Num 20:12 But Adonai said to Moshe and Aharon, “Because you did not trust in me, so as to cause me to be regarded as holy by the people of Isra’el, you will not bring this community into the land I have given them.”
Second year second month at dusk they are told to memorialize coming out of Egypt by eating bread with no leaven in it called, matzah. They were to remember how the firstborn’s blood covered them and none of their firstborns would die if covered by that lamb’s blood.
So, what else will be memorialized by Israel themselves as they become a people group that ‘remembers’ their sins of the past? They will set up four fasts of ‘remembrance’ and probably more, but these are the ones that are put on their calendars so as not to ‘forget’ their sins of disobedience.
Moses fasted when Twelve Tribal leaders were gone 40 days and 40 nights looking at The Land…with Giant grapes and some giant people.
Moses fasted quickly again on 17 Tammuz when he comes down the mountain from receiving the first set of instructions, we call The Ten Commandments. He was gone 40 days and 40 nights before 17 Tammuz. The Hebrew dates are 7 Sivan to 17 Tammuz.
Does this speak to you? It should! Sivan 6 is used as the jubilee date of 50th Day of Counting of Omer. I’m at a wow moment as I revisit these time periods. In these verses we have Pesach (Passover) being defined. It will go to Shavuot which can fall on 6 Sivan. The very next day being Moses’ trip to Mt. Sinai to get the first instructions. It is during this time that the people want new leadership.
Next week in the year 2022 it is 17 Tammuz. Our earth should have been feeling the loss of their leadership and have been turning to their own worldly idols.
Moses was to take them around the people of Edom because ADONAI knew they would flee back to Egypt if they encountered war. Exodus 13:18 …he took them by the Sea of Suf.
Num 20:20 But he said, “You are not to pass through”; and Edom came out against them with many people and much force.
Num 20:21 Thus Edom refused to allow Isra’el passage through its territory, so Isra’el turned away.
Exo 13:15 When Pharaoh was unwilling to let us go, Adonai killed all the firstborn males in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of humans and the firstborn of animals. This is why I sacrifice to Adonai any male that is first from the womb of an animal, but all the firstborn of my sons I redeem.’
Exo 13:16 This will serve as a sign on your hand and at the front of a headband around your forehead that with a strong hand Adonai brought us out of Egypt.”
600 first class chariots pursued the people that were leaving boldly.
Nisan 14 they come out of Egypt and God’s redeems His Firstborn Israel.
Fifty-one days later Moses leaves them for 40 days and 40 nights. He returns on 17 Tammuz and finds a golden image of one of Egypt’s idols…a calf or bull that was also seen in the heavens at that time of year. We are to have no idols above, below or anything that dwells even within the earth.
July 16, 2022 is 17 Tammuz. The Hebrew and Gregorian calendars in July 2022 are just one day apart: a rare circumstance.
There are TEN testing of God that occur in that first year and judgment falls as seen in the Parshah called Korach (without covering). 15,000 die in that plague.
We see Miriam die when they don’t have water. We learn about la-seanharah (evi speech) as she turns leprous and is placed outside their camp. Aharon has a problem with pride as Moses and him strike the rock instead of speaking to it. Mosch and Aharon are taking credit for the water supply now coming from a rock that will follow them around for forty years.
Today Torah portion called Hukkat immediately begins with how to become clean. It will have to do with water and ashes. The special water traveling with them represents the Holy Spirit. The ashes represent our savior sacrificed body being destroyed 1500 years into their future. They are to do this so as to not be surprised by God’s plan of redemption for the entire world. It begins with the ‘red heifer’ being sacrificed and that is where we begin as well…with God come in the flesh via a son born of a young female human being never been with a man before. Hmm…she must be four years old…I’m joking. We know that she had no burden put upon herself as she still lived with her parents and was single. This ‘red heifer’ plays out in many examples meant for purity.
It is interesting that only a clean person can perform the act of now touching the dead ‘red heifer’ which now its ashes added to water can make other clean. Yes, it shows how we are all unclean and we need Yeshua’s atoning blood to make us clean. We must recognize that Elohim is truly the only PURE object in the universe. All creation must agree that His authority is overall. Thus, being ‘unclean’ is not bad. We all can be around something dead. The priests killed bulls, heifers, goat etc. every day for the people. But there was a way for them to become clean again. This my friends is the real story behind these ‘sacrifices’ that people argue they don’t think are necessary to do any more.
Whoa is us to make assumptions. Whoa is us to add pride to our list of faults. Pride cannot relate to being humble. We must be humble before this plan because it is what lets us cross over. We are dead to ourselves and alive in Christ we see in the New Testament writings.
So, Aaron was unclean even as he touched Miriam who had died from her ‘evil speech’ toward ADONAI. She died and they buried her outside the camp. Aharon will be taken up the mountain where his brother Mosch will strip him of his priestly garments and put them on Eliazer. It is Eliazer that is now accepted as being the High Priest in authority on earth for Elohim.
The Death of Aaron
Num 20:22 They traveled on from Kadesh; and the people of Isra’el, the whole community, arrived at Mount Hor.
Num 20:23 At Mount Hor, by the border of the land of Edom, Adonai said to Moshe and Aharon,
Num 20:24 “Aharon is about to be gathered to his people, because he is not to enter the land, I have given to the people of Isra’el, inasmuch as you rebelled against what I said at the M’rivah Spring.
Num 20:25 Take Aharon and El`azar his son, bring them up to Mount Hor,
Num 20:26 remove the garments from Aharon and put them on El`azar his son. Aharon will be gathered to his people—he will die there.”
Num 20:27 Moshe did as Adonai had ordered. They went up onto Mount Hor before the eyes of the whole community.
Num 20:28 Moshe removed the garments from Aharon, and put them on El`azar his son, and Aharon died there on the top of the mountain. Then Moshe and El`azar came down the mountain.
Num 20:29 When the entire community saw that Aharon was dead, they mourned Aharon thirty days, the whole house of Isra’el.
This scene showed them the future. Yeshua was with Moses and Elijah probably discussing what robe would be put on Yeshua after his crucifixion. Perhaps they discussed every prophecy about Yeshua had to be completed exactly to the hour and minute… just as He dies first before the lambs would start to be slain for Pesach.
This scene shows us the future as well. We see Torah people going up to meet with ELOYIM and then we see some are left there and don’t return to earth to walk out Torah again…as Aharon the High Priest did not. His position led him to act with his brother in taking credit for something Elohim alone could do. They acted together as gods. Men today act as gods thinking they can perform miracles on others when it is only Elohim that did it. If you hear of prophecy, there can be no credit given accept to the Most High. In fact, there should be no new prophecies as even Yeshua Jesus, even Isaiah and all of them could only repeat what had already been said from the words in The Torah and the prophets of that day.
Aharon’s priestly garments were not taken off him because Yeshua’s were not taken off him. Yeshua’s garments were torn off him except for the one that was woven into one piece and could not be ripped off him. They cast lots for that garment. Garments have a lot of symbolism, so we are not left in the dark about how The Father feels about things. The priests wore linen which is more see through than wool. They were to be transparent to the people.
Aharon son’s die before his face and he is crushed. They are told not to mourn those sons as they offered unholy incense. Aharon helped with the idolatrous golden calf and placed his shame on others. We see in the future that Hezekiah will have his eyes poked out but not before seeing his two sons killed before his eyes. These examples show us The Father looking on seeing His only begotten Son of God die before Him. We have a very personal Creator God who feels our pain… and yet He deserved none of this pain because we sin and deserve pain and God can’t sin… He is pure.
July 16, 2022 at dusk begins The Sabbath and it begins The Fast of Tammuz. Yes, this Friday evening begins the Hebrew date 17 Tammuz.
Since The Sabbath only has one ‘Day of Affliction’ appointed by YHWH, many will defer this self-inflicted fast until Sunday, July 17, 2022.
Yom Kippur the sabbath of The Fast. Yom Kippur is the only sabbath that we are to ‘Afflict’ ourselves in repentance. Isaiah 58 is speaking about The Fast. It is not talking about us choosing any sabbath to inflict ourselves.
Yom Kippur is a Sabbath and it is The Day of Atonement and a Day of Judgment. Moses leaves during the month of Elul and will return on The Day of Affliction, Tishrei 10. He comes before them and declares YHWH WILL continue providing their needs. He arrives telling them about YHWH’s attributes. They will now learn how this god is that they are being ask to follow. This god will not just be a figure in the sky, but this elohim will ACT out with feelings His personality.
Yom Kippur is the day we should remember Yeshua’s blood atonement and recognize our salvation through that atonement. We wear WHITE because Yeshua took our place of spiritual death. We know our bodies will rise up and be united with our physical bodies that day. We can know what day that happens because we know the patterns set before us in history. Do we know The Day of Vengeance of The Lord? Hmm…
When Moses came down the mountain in Arabia with ADONAI’s instructions in his hands the first time, he threw down the stone tablets of which had been personally inscribed by The Father.
The instructions were given once. Mosche, being human, would also break them; as we all fall short. In Year One Month Five (Av) Day 29 Mosche is told to come back up the mountain.
Moses Makes New Tablets
Exo 34:1 Adonai said to Moshe, “Cut yourself two tablets of stone like the first ones; and I will inscribe on the tablets the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke.
Exo 34:2 Be ready by morning; in the morning you are to ascend Mount Sinai and present yourself to me on the top of the mountain.
Exo 34:5 Adonai descended in the cloud, stood with him there and pronounced the name of Adonai.
Exo 34:6 Adonai passed before him and proclaimed: “YUD-HEH-VAV-HEH!!! Yud-Heh-Vav-Heh ( י ה ו ה ) [Adonai] is God, merciful and compassionate, slow to anger, rich in grace and truth;
Exo 34:7 showing grace to the thousandth generation, forgiving offenses, crimes and sins; yet not exonerating the guilty, but causing the negative effects of the parents’ offenses to be experienced by their children and grandchildren, and even by the third and fourth generations.”
Exo 34:8 At once Moshe bowed his head to the ground, prostrated himself
Exo 34:9 and said, “If I have now found favor in your view, Adonai, then please let Adonai go with us, even though they are a stiff-necked people; and pardon our offenses and our sin; and take us as your possession.”
The Covenant Renewed
Exo 34:10 He said, “Here, I am making a covenant; in front of all your people I will do wonders such as have not been created anywhere on earth or in any nation. All the people around you will see the work of Adonai. What I am going to do through you will be awesome!
Our Creator will do awesome wars winning battles for ‘spiritual sake’.
Pesach (Passover) Yeshua rides on a firstborn colt (male) donkey
Exo 34:18 “Keep the festival of matzah by eating matzah, as I ordered you, for seven days during the month of Aviv; for it was in the month of Aviv that you came out from Egypt.
Exo 34:19 “Everything that is first from the womb is mine. Of all your livestock, you are to set aside for me the males, the firstborn of cattle and flock.
Exo 34:20 The firstborn of a donkey you must redeem with a lamb; if you won’t redeem it, break its neck. All the firstborn of your sons you are to redeem, and no one is to appear before me empty-handed.
Exo 34:21 “Six days you will work, but on the seventh day you are to rest—even in plowing time and harvest season you are to rest.
Exo 35:1 Moshe assembled the whole community of the people of Isra’el and said to them, “These are the things which Adonai has ordered you to do.
Exo 35:2 On six days work is to be done, but the seventh day is to be a holy day for you, a Shabbat of complete rest in honor of Adonai. Whoever does any work on it is to be put to death.
A short summary of the beginning days in The Wilderness for 40 years is that Aharon is missing as well as Miriam who even wrote what is called The Song of Mosch as they crossed into the Reed Sea. A new song is written as they now have water’s part again as they cross over The Jordan. The old generation was told they would die off and they did. There is no one older than forty years old except for Joshua and Caleb crossing the Jordan into the New Land.
It is at 4000 years Yeshua came in perfect timing to that New Land. That peope group had added their own ‘oral’ instructions to The Torah. Today, many rabbi’s words are being honored more than The Torah once again. We are in the same pattern of removal in order to bring The Torah back to the earth.
If you hate The Torah, you won’t be bothered by dying. You don’t care to be here anyway….except for your own pride of representing God your way. You are striking the ‘foundation stone’ instead of speaking to it to bring the Holy Spirit into others’ lives.
If you love The Torah, you will be bothered about it not being allowed The Church.
If you are lukewarm about The Torah and desire the Gentile to feel comfortable and do whatever feels good to them, then you will be spewed out.
The Torah has to be presented in its purest form. The Torah honors the Sabbath. The Torah believers will eat clean because Yeshua Jesus is clean. Torah believers will honor The Lord’s Feasts because they are God’s traditions that have meaning to them. The Torah gives all giftings and callings to both Jew and Gentile.
Hormah (complete destruction)
Num 21:2 Isra’el made a vow to Adonai, “If you will hand this people over to me, I will completely destroy their cities.”
Num 21:3 Adonai listened to what Isra’el said and handed over the Kena`anim, so they completely destroyed them and their cities and named the place Hormah [complete destruction]
On Father’s Day 2022 we studied Parshah 36 B”ha’alotkha (when you set up) Numbers 8:1-12:16.
We had a bull calf born this very Sabbath in 2021. We named him Bhalotkha. This black Angus is now one year old. He is scheduled for slaughter this fall for family food. I look out my window viewing him eating the rich grasses. I thank our Creator for again speaking through our cattle. Our firstborn was named Aaron. He is an elder in his church very happy with Jesus. He has chosen not to join Torah.
On June 18 as our family celebrated Father’s Day, I read this about Moses’ father-in-law son, Hovav. Hovav is a gentile Midianite. He is Moses’ brother-in-law who did NOT want to go with them. Hovav is a gentile being offered full rights and blessings for participating. But he needed to go with them.
Num 10:29 Moshe said to Hovav the son of Re`u’el the Midyani, Moshe’s father-in-law, “We are traveling to the place about which Adonai said, ‘I will give it to you.’ Come with us, and we will treat you well, because Adonai has promised good things to Isra’el.”
Num 10:30 But he replied, “I will not go; I would rather go back to my own country and my own kinsmen.”
Num 10:31 Moshe continued, “Please don’t leave us, because you know that we have to camp in the desert, and you can serve as our eyes.
Num 10:32 If you do go with us, then whatever good Adonai does for us, we will do the same for you.”
Num 10:33 So they set out from Adonai’s mountain and traveled for three days. Ahead of them on this three-day journey went the ark of Adonai’s covenant, searching for a new place to stop.
Num 10:34 The cloud of Adonai was over them during the day as they set out from the camp.
Num 10:35 When the ark moved forward, Moshe said, “Arise, Adonai! May your enemies be scattered! Let those who hate you flee before you!”
Num 10:36 When it stopped, he said, “Return, Adonai of the many, many thousands of Isra’el!”
Hovav’s clan could have been Israel’s eyes. They were offered to be ‘guards’. Gentiles are offered to ‘guard the Torah’. We too can keep watch over it. When Aharon was told to guard The Tabernacle, they were guarding The Ark… which held The Torah. Guarding The Torah is burying it inside us so we know when deception is among us.
The Ark went forward with God’s cloud covering them by day…so they were not scorched by the sun’s heat. They were warm at night from the pillar of fire. They had perfect climate.
Num 18:4 They will work together with you in your duties related to the tent of meeting, whatever the service in the tent may be; but an unauthorized person is not to come near you.
Each person will need to be authorized to come into The Heavenly Court. Its qualification will depend on that one that was ‘burnt up’. Yeshua was burnt up and also came back to confirm how to live out The Torah as it keeps peace on earth just as it is in The Heavens. There is a Kingdom coming to earth and it is prepared in the heavens. It is the mansion people think they are going to when actually it comes down and we walk to it. We see it and have to leave our secure dwelling places and visit it located in Jerusalem…three times a year Zechariah tells us.
Numbers 20:1 begins the journey showing us the very first month. Miriam died and was buried in Kadesh during that stay.
The Rock keeps providing them water.
Edom (Esau) family is their immediate next challenge. After explaining ADONAI’s angel bringing them out of Egypt by miracles and offering to pay for any damages while crossing their land they are still rejected to cross and must ‘go around’ Edom. Israel’s representatives continue to plea with Edom saying we don’t even need your water…we just need to cross over! Edom sends out people and much force against Israel who then flees from the borders of Edom. In 40 years, Adonai remembers these Edomites and orders Joshua to remove them before Israel crosses over.
Num 20:18 But Edom answered, “You are not to pass through my land; if you do, I will come out against you with the sword.”
Num 20:19 The people of Isra’el replied, “We will keep to the highway; if we do drink the water, either we or our livestock, we will pay for it. Just let us pass through on foot—it’s nothing.”
Num 20:20 But he said, “You are not to pass through”; and Edom came out against them with many people and much force.
Num 20:21 Thus Edom refused to allow Isra’el passage through its territory, so Isra’el turned away.
The people will grumble because of this detour and the next plague will be snakes. We will see a snake put on a pole and if people look to it they will be saved. Genesis 3:15 shows us the picture of Yeshua crushing the head of the serpent as the final blow but not before the snake strikes the children of Israel’s heels.
Yeshua Jesus is shown to us even as He was put on a stake and we can look to that act for our salvation.
The Bronze Serpent
Num 21:4 Then they traveled from Mount Hor on the road toward the Sea of Suf in order to go around the land of Edom; but the people’s tempers grew short because of the detour.
Num 21:5 The people spoke against God and against Moshe: “Why did you bring us up out of Egypt? To die in the desert. There’s no real food, there’s no water, and we’re sick of this miserable stuff we’re eating!”
Num 21:6 In response, Adonai sent poisonous snakes among the people; they bit the people, and many of Isra’el’s people died.
Num 21:7 The people came to Moshe and said, “We sinned by speaking against Adonai and against you. Pray to Adonai that he rid us of these snakes.” Moshe prayed for the people,
Num 21:8 and Adonai answered Moshe: “Make a poisonous snake and put it on a pole. When anyone who has been bitten sees it, he will live.”
Num 21:9 Moshe made a bronze snake and put it on the pole; if a snake had bitten someone, then, when he looked toward the bronze snake, he stayed alive.
Complaining of no food, no water, Edom chasing them brought short tempers which brought snakes which caused them to look to the stake. Our Creator will always turn us back to the cross of sacrifice because He bore much worse.
We heard from our current young prophet Nathan in 2015 dying and yet he returns telling of Heaven’s Court with the message of smell. The Creator smells us. He knows us by our inner appearance, not the outer appearance. This 15-year-old young prophet said that God’s War had begun. Yes, on 27 Elul, 2015 God’s War had begun. Here we see the mention of God’s Book of Wars.
Num 21:14 This is why it says, in the Book of the Wars of Adonai, “. . . Vahev at Sufah, the vadis of Arnon,
Num 21:15 and the slope of the vadis extending as far as the site of `Ar, which lie next to the territory of Mo’av.”
We gave some interesting stories of people in the surrounding area that did not want Israel to come close to them. King Balak didn’t even want them sitting in the desert and his people looking at them. He hired a prophet to put a curse on Israel in which we even see a donkey speak up for his owner instead of letting his owner get killed. We use the words, “stubborn as a mule” when they just won’t move an inch.
We began this conversation with verse 22:1. There are a tremendous amount of experience that went on for forty years. Twenty-two is the year we are experiencing right now. Since January the Gregorian and Hebrew calendar have just been about a day off. There is no reason for us to be ignorant of ‘what day it is.’
I believe our Creator is striking down our enemies in His time schedule. Our Creator protected those that went on the ‘wilderness’ journey that did not complain. Complaining against the instructions was complaining against God.
Today we complain about the instructions which is complaining about God.
Sichon was destroyed. Og was destroyed. Moabites were destroyed. Heshbon is destroyed. These Scriptures are put to song, so we do NOT forget the battles fought to bring The Torah to the earth. Yeshua arrives endorsing its original form. The battle is not to ADD or TAKE away from it. If you do, you are eliminated.
Each person will give account of what they were willing to accept about it.
Each person will also be held accountable for not honoring the patterns that were set up to point to Day Six, 6000 years of man on earth. Day Seven known as a sabbath for rest showing mankind the one thousand years of rest between years 6000 – 7000. Day Eight – The New Heaven and Earth where we will dwell into eternity.
This is just a glimmer of what is to come. The stories in the Wilderness are for us to grasp and push forward to the next generation. My heart burns for people to understand the depth of these Scriptures seen in others’ lives and in our very own lives…if we would just look. Will you remain alive to see the most exciting MOVE planned for our earth… The real Jerusalem coming to earth.
Num 21:35 So they struck him down, with his sons and all his people, until there was no one left alive; and then they took control of his land.
All will be struck down that don’t want to go with the instructions given to the children of Israel. And, then they moved into the land showing us moving back to the earth. Yes, Eliazar was now the High Priest and came walking back with Mosch. We will be priests walking the earth with Yeshua, dressed in priestly garments stained in crimson, His blood.
Thank you for considering the depths of this lesson. I listened to Assembly of Called Out Believers and heard about how many years a cow lives. He expounded on that and so I shared it with you.
On this last Sabbath called Hukkat we arrived at evening for our first great grandchild’s first birthday. He is named after Solomon’ original name, Jedediah. He announced his new sister coming in December. They think her name will be Charity. I am thankful that our family takes seriously what is in a name. It is our name that we live out on this earth. It becomes part of us and yet we will be given new names.
I believe it will be simple. YHWH will give us part of His name just as Joshua was given the letter Hei (hay) meaning behold.
Joshua was changed to Joshuah. If you write his name in Hebrew letters you will pronounce it with a ‘y’ sound. Hmm. Now you are saying our saviors real name, Yeshua. Yes, ADONAI changed Joshua’s name to Yeshua because that is who crosses us over. Yeshua is who we claim for spiritual salvation u
Abram was given the same ‘hei’.
Sari was also given the same letter, ‘hei’, Sarah
Think about it… His name is Yah u ah. Behold…the Son of God coming!
