Parashat 54 Portion 151 Dev/Deut 34:1-12 Ber/Gen 1:1 Yesh/Is 2:1-4 1 Pet 1:22-25.

Heb 11:24  By belief(Gk dative noun – by means of faith..), Mosheh, having become great, refused to be called the son of the daughter of Pharaoh,
Heb 11:25  choosing rather to be afflicted with the people of Elohim than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a time,
Heb 11:26  deeming the reproach of Messiah greater riches than the treasures in Mitsrayim, for he was looking to the reward.

Moshe had a deep Messianic insight. He knew that his life and calling would be a foreshadow of the One to come – Yashua Messiah.

Yahshua(post resurrection) has a surprise encounter with two believers on their way to Emaus. They did  not recognize Yahshua. Their hearts burned within them as they heard Yahshua explain the Messiah from the scriptures to them.

Luk 24:27  And beginning at Mosheh and all the Prophets, He was explaining to them in all the Scriptures the matters concerning Himself.

This remains the challenge for genuine truth seekers today – to properly and thoroughly explain Yahshua from  Bereshiet to the book of Revelation in such a way that people are awed and drawn to the person of Messiah.

2Co 3:6 (Yahveh)… who also made us competent as servants of a renewed covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit, for the letter kills but the Spirit gives life.

Joh 14:6  יהושע said to him, “I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Joh 14:15  “If you love Me, you shall guard My commands.1 Footnote: 1See Ex. 20:6, vv. 21&23, 1 John 5:2-3, 2 John v. 6.

Torah Portion:

Deu 34:1  And Mosheh went up from the desert plains of Mo’aḇ to Mount Neḇo, to the top of Pisgah, which is opposite Yeriḥo. And יהוה showed him all the land of Gilʽaḏ as far as Dan,

2 maccabees 2:4-2:7
4 It was also in the same document that the prophet, having received an oracle, ordered that the tent and the ark should follow with him, and that he went out to the mountain where Moses had gone up and had seen the inheritance of YHVH. 5Jeremiah came and found a cave-dwelling, and he brought there the tent and the ark and the altar of incense; then he sealed up the entrance. 6Some of those who followed him came up intending to mark the way, but could not find it. 7When Jeremiah learned of it, he rebuked them and declared: ‘The place shall remain unknown until YHVH gathers his people together again and shows his mercy.
“Gilead, meaning rugged, was a highland region east of The Jordan River, extending approximately from the southern end of The Sea Of Galilee to the northern end of The Salt Sea, with the Jabbok River roughly marking its mid-point. From its mountains it was known as "the mount, or hill country, of Gilead" (Genesis 31:25), but was also called "the land of Gilead" (Numbers 32:1), or simply "Gilead" (Genesis 37:25). After the YHVH-commanded possession and division of the Promised Land among The Tribes Of Israel, it was held by Gad, Reuben and part of Manasseh (Deuteronomy 3:13-15, Numbers 32:40) - a territory today outside of Israel's national borders, occupied by the Kingdom of Jordan for now.”

     Deu 34:2  and all Naphtali and the land of Ephrayim and Menashsheh, all the land of Yehuḏah as far as the Western Sea,
     Deu 34:3  and the Negeḇ, and the plain of the Valley of Yeriḥo, the city of palm trees, as far as Tsoʽar.
      Deu 34:4  And יהוה said to him, “This is the land of which I swore to Aḇraham, to Yitsḥaq, and to Yaʽaqoḇ, saying, ‘To your seed I give it.’ I have let you look at it with your eyes, but you do not pass over there.”


       If one has a look at a map of Israel and the division of the tribes – it is physically impossible to see as far as Moshe saw.
     We assume YHVH grants Moshe a prophetic vision of all the land (Nebo means prophet)
        In reality Moshe most probably sees and experiences more about Israel’s present and future destiny than what the Israelites saw and experienced in their entire life time who returned physically to Israel.
     YHVH grants Moshe a future redemptive vision of the land.

     As Moshe surveyed the land present and future he may even have received a glimpse of where he and Eliyahu would one day meet face to face with the Messiah.

Mat 17:1  And after six days יהושע took Kĕpha, and Yaʽaqoḇ, and Yoḥanan his brother, and brought them up on a high mountain by themselves, (see also Mark 14:33 – Garden Gethemane)
Mat 17:2  and He was transformed before them, and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became as white as the light.
Mat 17:3  And see, Mosheh and Ěliyahu appeared to them, talking with Him.
Mat 17:4  And Kĕpha answering, said to יהושע, “Master, it is good for us to be here. If You wish, let us make here three booths: one for You, one for Mosheh, and one for Ěliyahu.”1 Footnote:1Mark 9:4.
Mat 17:5  While he was still speaking, see, a bright cloud overshadowed them. And see, a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My Son, the Beloved, in whom I did delight. Hear Him!”
Mat 17:6  And when the taught ones heard, they fell on their faces and were much afraid.
Mat 17:7  But יהושע came near and touched them and said, “Rise, and do not be afraid.”
Mat 17:8  And having lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but יהושע only.
Mat 17:11  And יהושע answering, said to them, “Ěliyahu is indeed coming first, and shall restore all matters.1 Footnote:1See Mark 9:12 and Acts 3:21.

Same Greek word for restore used in - Act 3:20  and that He sends יהושע Messiah, pre-appointed for you,
Act 3:21  whom heaven needs to receive until the times of restoration of all matters, of which Elohim spoke through the mouth of all His set-apart prophets since of old.

G605 apokatastasis ap-ok-at-as'-tas-is From G600; reconstitution: - restitution.

Maybe believers are going to have to “reconstitute” their ideas about Yahshua’s return. Yahshua is not coming back until at least a remnant are “reconstituted” according to The Constitution – The Torah.

Mal 4:1  “For look, the day shall come, burning like a furnace, and all the proud, and every wrongdoer shall be stubble. And the day that shall come shall burn them up,” said יהוה of hosts, “which leaves to them neither root nor branch.
Mal 4:2  “But to you who fear My Name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing(Heb  “raphe” to mend by stitching – to cure, repair and make whole) in His wings. And you shall go out and leap for joy like calves from the stall.
Mal 4:3  “And you shall trample the wrongdoers, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I do this,” said יהוה of hosts.
Mal 4:4  “Remember the Torah of Mosheh, My servant, which I commanded him in Ḥorĕḇ for all Yisra’ĕl – laws and right-rulings.
Mal 4:5  “See, I am sending you Ěliyah1 the prophet before the coming of the great and awesome day of יהוה. Footnote: 1Lk. 1:17.
Mal 4:6  “And he shall turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with utter destruction1.” Footnote: 1Zech. 14:11.

The ministry of Moshe and Eliyahu are profoundly connected to an end time restored generation. Great adjustments will be required. There will clear instruction as to the mind of YHVH and the required halacha for an end time remnant.

Rev 11:3  “And I shall give unto my two witnesses,(possibly Moshe and Eliyahu) and they shall prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clad in sackcloth.”
Rev 11:4  These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that are standing before the Elohim of the earth.
Rev 11:5  And if anyone wishes to harm them, fire comes out from their mouth and consumes their enemies. And if anyone wishes to harm them, he has to be killed in that way.
Rev 11:6  These possess authority to shut the heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy. And they possess authority over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they wish.
Rev 11:7  And when they have ended their witness, the beast coming up out of the pit of the deep shall fight against them, and overcome them, and kill them,
Rev 11:8  and their dead bodies lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Seḏom and Mitsrayim, where also our Master was impaled,
Rev 11:9  and some of the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations see their dead bodies for three and a half days, and not allow their dead bodies to be placed into tombs,
Rev 11:10  and those dwelling on the earth rejoice over them and exult. And they shall send gifts to each other, because these two prophets tortured those dwelling on the earth.
Rev 11:11  And after the three and a half days a spirit of life from Elohim entered into them, and they stood upon their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them.
Rev 11:12  And they heard a loud voice from the heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up into the heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them.
Rev 11:13  And in that hour there came to be a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. And in the earthquake seven thousand men were killed, and the rest became afraid and gave esteem to the Elohim of the heaven.

Close by to Mount Nebo is Petra – a desert sanctuary which in history has been a hiding place for believers. Will it become a sanctuary again for and end time remnant?


Hos 2:14  "And now, here's what I'm going to do: I'm going to start all over again. I'm taking her back out into the wilderness where we had our first date, and I'll court her.
Hos 2:15  I'll give her bouquets of roses. I'll turn Heartbreak Valley into Acres of Hope. She'll respond like she did as a young girl, those days when she was fresh out of Egypt.
Hos 2:16  "At that time"--this is YHVH’s Message still-- "you'll address me, 'Dear husband!' Never again will you address me, 'My slave-master!'
Hos 2:17  I'll wash your mouth out with soap, get rid of all the dirty false-god names, not so much as a whisper of those names again. (like the days of the week named after false deities)
Hos 2:18  At the same time I'll make a peace treaty between you and wild animals and birds and reptiles, And get rid of all weapons of war. Think of it! Safe from beasts and bullies!
Hos 2:19  And then I'll marry you for good--forever! I'll marry you true and proper, in love and tenderness.
Hos 2:20  Yes, I'll marry you and neither leave you nor let you go. You'll know me, YHVH, for who I really am.

Deu 34:5  And Mosheh the servant of יהוה died there in the land of Mo’aḇ, according to the mouth of יהוה.

Deu 34:6  And He buried him in a valley in the land of Mo’aḇ, opposite Bĕyth Peʽor, and no one knows his burial place to this day.
Deu 34:7  And Mosheh was one hundred and twenty years old when he died. His eyes were not dim nor his freshness gone.  (no medical aid or spectacles)
Deu 34:8  And the children of Yisra’ĕl wept for Mosheh in the desert plains of Mo’aḇ thirty days. And the days of weeping and mourning for Mosheh were completed.
Deu 34:9  And Yehoshua son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom, for Mosheh had laid his hands on him. And the children of Yisra’ĕl listened to him, and did as יהוה had commanded Mosheh.
Deu 34:10  And since then no prophet has arisen in Yisra’ĕl like Mosheh, whom יהוה knew face to face,

The Hebrew sentence structure implies that until the time of Moshe no greater prophet had arisen. The language does not imply that no prophet greater than Moshe will ever arise. We know that Messiah was and is the greatest prophet ever.

Deu 34:11  for all the signs and wonders which יהוה sent him to do in the land of Mitsrayim, before Pharaoh, and before all his servants, and in all his land,
Deu 34:12  and for all that strong hand and all the great fearsome deeds which Mosheh did before the eyes of all Yisra’ĕl.

Baruch atah YHVH, Eloheynu, Melech ha-‘Olam, asher natan lanu Toraht-emet, v’chay-yeh o’lam nata-b’tochenu. Baruch atah YHVH, noteyn ha-Torah. Ameyn.”
(Blessed are you Yahweh, our Elohim, King of the Universe, you have given us your Torah of truth, and have planted everlasting life within our midst. Blessed are you, YHVH giver of the Torah – Ameyn
