He Who Sees and Provides

And Abraham called the name of the place, YHVH YIREH; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of YHVH it shall be provided.” (Gen 22:14)

Yahweh yireh – YHVH Provides

Yireh – yod resh aleph hay – ‘to provide’ – comes from the Hebrew root word ra’ah which means ‘to see’.

In most occurrences in Scripture this word ‘yireh’ is translated in the context of something being seen or observed or perceived. So why here is it translated as ‘to provide’?

The first step in ‘providing’ is to recognize that provision is needed. Before we can ‘provide’ or meet a need, we first must recognize that there is a need that needs to be met.

Scripture states that our Creator and Father ‘knows what we have need of before we ask’. (Matt 6:8)

Our Father recognizes our need. But do we recognize Him as ‘The Provider’ and the source of everything we need?

In these days as well as the days to come, we must not only recognize our Father and Creator as the Ultimate Provider but learn to lean on Him for direction, for He is dependable. We also must ‘see’ that not all provision is physical or merely giving us the things that we ask for. As good earthly parents, sometimes we recognize that what our children ‘want’ is NOT what they need, and that which they ‘need’ is NOT necessarily what they ‘want’. 

Yod – His (right) Hand protects and directs and instructs

Resh – He is head and The One that we should follow as He ‘goes before us’.

Aleph – The Father, Son and Ruach are One. Our Elohim is our strong tower into which we can run. (Psalm 61)

Hey – Behold the One who sees and knows what we have need of before we ask and has made the Ultimate Provision.

Our Father sees our need and is ready and willing to provide. As we go about our daily lives today and the days to come, may He give us ‘eyes to see’ the needs –both physical and spiritual – around us that require provision, and pray our Father direct us (yod) as we follow His example (resh) recognizing Him as the source of all strength and true provision (aleph) and point others to our Father through Messiah Yeshua/Jesus the Christ and His work on the cross (hey) – ‘BEHOLD the Lamb of God’.  Shalom

Noah, Yeshua and The Price of A Life

Noah, Yeshua and The Price of a Life

            Noah – to rest, to settle down, to cause to be quiet; a resting place. Noah is a type and shadow of Messiah to come – the One in Whom we can rest. The One Who is our resting place. In the account of Noah and his family and the great upheaval we see both the judgment and deliverance that were dispensed by Father God’s ‘two-edged sword’. For wherever deliverance takes place, judgment also is executed – executed against that from which we are delivered.

In the account of the great flood we see most clearly in the Hebrew the inseparable partnership of Passover and Yom Kippur . . . the reconciliation and the covering, the ‘First and the Last’, and the bringing together of the ‘beginning and the end’ of the Gospel picture within the pattern of the Feasts of the LORD.

           We know it is old news for some, but this always intrigues us when we think on this passage – Genesis 6:14 “ . . . Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.”

           In the English translation it reads “ pitch it within and without with pitch” . . .  The first use of the word in this phrase ‘pitch’ is the hebrew word ‘kaphar’ ( kippur ) which means to cover or atone . . . the second time the word ‘pitch’ is used in the verse is the word ‘kopher’ which means ‘ransom’ or ‘the price of a life’ . . . the word translated ‘within’ is actually the word ‘bayt’ – ‘house’ .

          So this passage can literally be translated –

 ‘ cover the house, and outside – the price of a life . . . ‘

( Exodus 12 speaks to us of the  ‘covering of the house with the Blood of the Lamb, the door  being shut, those inside are safe, but outside – the price of a life’ . . . )

          The word for ‘rooms’ in Gen. 16:14 is the Hebrew word for ‘nests’ . . . sounds a little more personal and intimate than just ‘rooms’ , doesn’t it . . . but it is more than that. Birds have nests, don’t they ?

Hosea 11:10  “ They will walk after the LORD, He will roar like a lion; Indeed He will roar, And  HIS children will come trembling from the west.

 11 They will come trembling like birds from Egypt, like doves from Assyria. I will settle them in their homes,” declares the LORD.

 Psalm 91:3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, ( fowler – the one who hunts the birds ) . . .

          And what is ‘gopher wood’ ?  We don’t know ; but we do find this interesting . The word for ‘wood’ ( etz ) is the also the hebrew word for tree or stake . . . the word ‘gopher’ is spelled gimel peh resh ( or GPR ) . . . the word ‘ kaphar’ or ‘kippur’ is caf peh resh ( or KPR ) . . . but here is what the two words look like in hebrew . . .

See any similarities in the words ?   Hummm . . .

Is it  ‘gopher wood’ or is it a picture of the ‘wood that is involved in the covering’  because of what ultimately takes place on that tree ?

 Galatians 3:13 “ Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: . . .”  ( Deut 21:23 )

We find it interesting that since a ‘tree’ was involved in the original problem, it follows suit that a ‘tree’ would be involved in the ‘cure’ . . .

 Genesis 3:17 Then to Adam GOD said, “Because  . . . you have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat from it’; Cursed is the ground . . . “

 2 Corinthians 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

Romans 5:10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by His life.

          In the Gospels, John the Immerser declares – “ behold the lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world” ( john 1:29 )  . . . we believe that to be a ‘two-part’ statement.

Where does it say that a lamb takes away sin ? The goat was for Yom Kippur, not a lamb. The ‘lamb’ is the ‘shelem’ – the peace offering – that which reconciles two that are separated or at odds with one another. The two goats were the offerings for the Day of Atonement and the lamb is the reconciliation. Yeshua is both the two goats and the lamb . . .

And remember, GOD only covers ( kippur ) those that are His . . . and we become HIS by being reconciled back to Him by and through the blood of His Son, according to the Bible. Only when we accept His Reconciliation ( Yeshua, Our Peace) can we be covered.

Romans 5:10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by is life.

Revelation 1:18 I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.

          Is there anything in our lives that has separated us or ‘put us at odds’ with our Heavenly Father or one another ? If ‘no’, you are a rare individual in a rare position. Most of us would have to answer ‘yes’ to that question. Now would be a really good time to clear things up.

Do you want more of the Father and His Holy Spirit in your life and the life of your family ? Ask HIM what needs to change so there is more room for Him . . .

          Sukkot ( Feast of Tabernacles ) and the ‘Eighth Assembly’  are the culmination of God’s holidays/holy days.  Sukkot is the ‘family reunion of all times’ and the 8th Assembly is the first day in the New Kingdom. How do we get to be part of that Kingdom, His family ? We enter at Passover. We come in through the Door, Yeshua/Jesus. But once we’re in, the  ‘sin’ has to go. We can’t come into the presence of YHVH God our Father at The Homecoming with sin. He cannot abide sin, and sinful flesh cannot stand in His presence. So we accept His Kippur – His covering – the blood and body of Messiah Yeshua/Jesus the Christ.

Now we can enter His presence unafraid . . . for He sees us through the Blood of His Son, The Lamb . . . the One Who was born to die . . . for me and for you.

Projected Holy Dates 2022


Based on our understanding of Scripture, the seasons and the ‘lights in the heavens’, below is our reckoning of the tentative dates for the Biblical observances for the upcoming Gregorian year 2022.

Not only is the recognition and observance of the Biblical Holy Days a part of each believer’s ‘reasonable service’, there is a revelation, clarity and understanding that only comes in the ‘doing’.

The entirety of the Gospel Message is laid out in the Feasts of Yahweh, and in the doing of these mandated events, there comes a greater depth of insight into the days in which we find ourselves, end-time events and days that are to come; events and days for which we are actually performing ‘dress rehearsals’ in our physical and spiritual observances of these appointed days/dates.

So, as the writer of Hebrews admonishes, may we not forsake the assemblies as has become the habit of some as ‘The Day’ approaches. Shalom
