24th of the 5th month 2021/2022.

Shalom all,

As part of this week’s Torah readings, where we will be going through the portion from Wayyiqra/Leviticus 14:1-15:33, we will also be reading the passage from Melaḵim Bět/2 Kings 7, which is the passage that I want to take a closer look at in this message, as it is a passage that brings to us a powerful parable of:

THE GOOD NEWS OF DELIVERANCE!.

Please read Melaḵim Bět/2 Kings 7:1-30.

This chapter echoes the news of deliverance, which some will hear, while others will not, and it is a powerful passage that highlights some valuable lessons for us today, giving us the clear reality of the fact that despite the proclamation of the Good News of Deliverance, which we are all to be proclaiming, some will have ears to hear while others will refuse to hear and suffer the consequences for not hearing.

This is a passage of Scripture that I often refer to when we are looking at the Omer rěshiyth, during Matzot/Unleavened Bread, as we are able to identify a wonderful picture of the deliverance being proclaimed herein, as a powerful shadow picture of the redemption work of our Master יהושע Messiah..

Let us therefore take a closer look at this passage, which begins with the following words:

Melaḵim Bět/2 Kings 7:1 “And Elisha said, “Hear the word of יהוה. Thus said יהוה, ‘About this time tomorrow a seah of fine flour for a sheqel, and two seahs of barley for a sheqel, at the gate of Shomeron.’

Here in the first verse of this chapter, we see Elisha calling for all to hear the Word of יהוה.

Elisha was proclaiming ‘the good news of deliverance’ to the people in Shomeron.

He was calling for all to hear the Word of יהוה …. In a time when most had turned their ears away from hearing the Truth..

In order to understand the opening declaration that was being made here in this Chapter, we need to recognise the context of these words and the circumstances that brough this about.

In Chapter 6 we are clearly told how the sovereign of Aram, Ben-Haḏaḏ, mustered all his army, and went up and besieged Shomeron. The Sovereign of Yisra’ěl and the people of Shomeron were surrounded by the Arameans and were facing a severe famine and a lack of provision, as they were under the immense attack and threat of the enemy.

As a result of disobedience, Yisra’ěl was being handed over to the oppression of the Arameans and were facing a terrible famine, so much so, that the price of a donkey’s head and the price of dove droppings were extremely high and this in itself highlights the depravity of the situation, as these were unclean items that should not be bought for food at all. It may be a witness of the sick chaos of lawlessness that was going on, especially as we take note, in Chapter 6, that the sovereign tore his garments, after hearing a woman cry out to him for help and tell the sovereign how her and another woman had eaten her son and when looking to eat the other woman’s son, the other woman had hidden him.

This shocked the sovereign so much that he tore his garments and then issued a severe death threat against Elisha..

The state that Yisra’ěl were in, was as a result of disobedience and the women who were eating their children during this severe famine, is a clear witness of the curse of יהוה being upon them, as we take note of that which is written in the Torah, in regards to the curses for disobedience that are mentioned, of which we see the following:

Deḇarim/Deuteronomy 28:53 “And you shall eat the fruit of your own body, the flesh of your sons and your daughters whom יהוה your Elohim has given you, in the siege and distress in which your enemies distress you.

The Hebrew word that is translated as ‘siege’ is מָצוּר matsur – Strong’s H4692 which means, siege enclosure, siege, entrenchment and comes from the primitive root word צוּר tsur – Strong’s H6696 which means, to confine, bind, besiege.

These words all mean one form or another of being constricted or shut in and enclosed. .

These were terrible days of distress, being crushed by the oppression of the enemy and suffering a severe famine, which was so severe that some were eating their own children and others were paying extremely high prices for that which is not food and were possibly eating that which was unclean as there was no supply of food..

The sovereign of Yisra’ěl, at this point, was Yehoram, son of Aḥaḇ, who was a wicked king that reigned 12 years in Shomeron and did evil in the eyes of יהוה and clung to the sins of Yaroḇ‛am son of Neḇat, who had made Yisra’ěl sin.

He did not like Elisha at all and when seeing the state of distress in Yisra’ěl, instead of repenting and turning to יהוה, he tore his garments and sought to kill Elisha, the prophet of Elohim!.

Elisha did not flee or try to hide away, but calls all to hear the Word of יהוה!

This, in itself, is a wonderful display of complete confidence and trust in יהוה, and being bold and courageous to stand up and proclaim the Good News of Deliverance, in a time when people were under such distress!..

When we witness the state of the world at large today, we can see how many people are facing immense pressures and are in a severe state of distress, as most have lost any hope of a recovery, which has brought about an increase in lawlessness.

For the majority of the word, they are not looking to יהוה nor are they seeking Him in their distress, but are continuing in their depravity and doing whatever it takes, so to speak, to survive, even if it means doing things that they would never have even imagined doing, yet have resorted to the most wicked practices, just to try to escape the stress and pressures of distress.

This is where we, the children of Elohim, are to be proclaiming the Good News of Deliverance, and not fear the threats of the enemy spirit which seeks to discredit the Truth of Elohim..

Over the past year and half, the whole world has, in a nutshell, been talking one similar language, so to speak, which has been based on the fear and panic that has arisen as a result of sicknesses that are being poured out as part of יהוה’s judgement of wasting diseases. While the spirit of the anti-messiah is certainly seeking to control the masses through fear and panic, we are also to be reminded that it is יהוה who sends the evil and the good and as His Day draws near, the distresses will certainly increase and sadly, as we see from the Book of Ḥazon/Revelation, most will refuse to repent and will continue to blaspheme Elohim and speak out against the set-apart ones..

Elisha cries out the clear message of Good News amidst the distress, where he says that the prices of fine flour and barley would be affordable for all…. which most would not have believed at that point, based on the inflation that they had seen as a result of the severe famine.

In verse 2 we are basically told that one of the officers of the sovereign did not believe what Elisha had just proclaimed and he was then told that his eyes would see it but he would not eat of it.

In other words, his unbelief would cause him to miss out on tasting the Good News, even though he would be able to see it!

As we know, at the end of the chapter, this servant did see the price of fine flour and barley being as Elisha had proclaimed, yet was trampled in the gate and he never got to eat of it!

This too is a great lesson that we are able to see in this passage, which reminds us of how there will be many who will not taste the sweet victory of deliverance, due to their unbelief..

In this account we see how it took 4 leprous men, who went to see if they could find food and when they came to the enemy camp the enemy was gone, but all the provisions had been left behind!

What you will notice, from the words of Elisha, is that the price that was being declared for wheat and barley, was a lot lower than it had been and this is why some did not believe..

What is worth taking note of here, is the relationship between the barley and the gate.

The price of two measures of barley was 1 sheqel, making the price of one measure of barley a half of a shekel, which is the price for atonement for each person, as one measure, or omer, of barley is a half a sheqel!

This is a clear parable of deliverance, being proclaimed through the events that took place here!.

The Hebrew word for ‘barley’ is שְׂעֹרָה seorah – Strong’s H8184 and comes from the root word שֵׂעָר sear – Strong’s H8181 which means, hair, hairy; and from this root word we get the word for goat which is שָׂעִיר saiyr – Strong’s H8163.

The Hebrew word for ‘gate’ is the root word שַׁעַר sha’ar – Strong’s H8179 which means, gate, door, entrance and comes from the root verb שָׁעַר sha’ar – Strong’s H8176 which means, to think, split open, reason out, calculate, reckon, estimate’..

As you will notice, there is a closeness in the 2 root words from which the words that are translated as ‘barley’ and ‘gate’ are derived from

The root word שֵׂעָר sear – Strong’s H8181 is spelt with a ‘sin’(שֵׂ), ‘ayin’ (עָ) and ‘resh’ (ר).

The root word שָׁעַר sha’ar – Strong’s H8176 is spelt with a ‘shin’(שַׁ), ‘ayin’ (עָ) and ‘resh’ (ר).

So, when looking at these two root words, for hairy and calculate, we take note that one has a ‘sin’ (שֵׂ) and the other a ‘shin’(שַׁ)!.

What is worth taking note of here, is the relationship between the barley and the gate.

The price of two measures of barley was 1 sheqel, making the price of one measure of barley a half of a shekel, which is the price for atonement for each person, as one measure, or omer, of barley is a half a sheqel!

This is a clear parable of deliverance, being proclaimed through the events that took place here!

Why is the half a sheqel of silver important for us to understand?

Well, let us read from:

Shemoth/Exodus 30:12-14 “When you take the census of the children of Yisra’ĕl, to register them, then each one shall give an atonement for his life to יהוה, when you register them, so that there is no plague among them when you register them. 13 “Everyone among those who are registered is to give this: half a sheqel according to the sheqel of the set-apart place, twenty gĕrahs being a sheqel. The half-sheqel is the contribution to יהוה. 14 “Everyone passing over to be registered, from twenty years old and above, gives a contribution to יהוה.

The half a sheqel was the price of atonement for each one who was registered in Yisra’ĕl and this atonement price, was to be taken as a remembrance before יהוה..

The sheaf of barley that is waved, was estimated at the price of atonement for each person registered and we are able to therefore see the relationship between the goat that is slaughtered for the sin offering, in order to make atonement, being a shadow picture of the atonement that our Master bought for us by His own Blood, in order that we may be counted in Him!.

The Greek word that is used in the LXX (Septuagint) for ‘gate’, is the word πύλη pulē – Strong’s G4439 and this word is used in describing the narrow gate that we are to strive to enter through:

Luqas/Luke 13:24 “Strive to enter through the narrow gate, because many, I say to you, shall seek to enter in and shall not be able..

Ok, so what does this have to do with barley and atonement and the sheaf (omer)?

A great deal… and I will show you why I say this!

We all know that Messiah is the Door, and we also know that it was at the gates of a city where right-ruling and justice was administered and where a proper check was done before anyone could enter in.

Our Master, therefore, has provided for us the entrance into His Reign, according to His proper right-ruling and justice.

What we can identify, through the events that took place here, as a clear parable for us, is that Elisha was proclaiming ‘the good news of deliverance’ to the people in Shomeron.

This is a clear parable of deliverance that was being proclaimed through the events that took place here!.

We are able to recognise the lessons that we can glean from these events and allow the mirror of the Word to highlight the clear choices that we have, in either trusting in יהוה and being bold ambassadors of His reign and proclaiming His reign as we should or, trusting in self or that which cannot save and lack the true obedient belief required to work out one’s deliverance with fear and trembling..

The boldness of Elisha is a clear witness and lesson for us, on how to not fall prey to the empty threats of the wicked and not be afraid to declare the truth.

The servant of the wicked sovereign is a lesson on unbelief, for he had aligned himself with a wicked king and as a result, he could not hear the message of deliverance, showing that he had not had his ears tuned in to giving proper attention to the Torah of Elohim and, as a result, lacked the necessary belief to hold on to the clear hope of deliverance being proclaimed..

The wicked sovereign and his servants were of no help to the people in Shomeron, who were resorting to wicked measures in an attempt at trying to survive the severe distresses of famine and the encroaching battle lines of the enemy.

Elisha stands up and declares a Truth that most could not hear, revealing how their eyes had not been fixed on the Torah of Elohim, but were looking to the flesh for relief, but found none.

It took 4 leprous men, who had been cast outside for their leprosy, to take the risk of going to the enemy camp and seek relief, only to find that the enemy had left in a hurry, for יהוה had caused the Arameans to hear the noise of chariots and the noise of horses, the noise of a great army and they fled in haste, leaving everything behind.

When the lepers got to outskirts of the camp and saw everything left behind and no army, they went in to a tent and ate and drank and took some of the spoil and hid it. Then they went to another tent and did the same.

Then, in verse 9, we are told that they said to each other, “We are not doing right. This day is a day of good news, and we are keeping silent. And if we wait until morning light, then evil shall come upon us. And now, come, let us go and inform the house of the sovereign.” .

They recognised that this was a day of good news and that by keeping silent was to the right thing to do, so they went to the gate of the city and informed the gatekeepers, who in turn reported their report to the sovereign.

At first, the sovereign assumed that this was simply another tactic of the Arameans, in order to lure them out of the city and take them captive.

One of the servants of the sovereign asked that they take 5 of the horses that were left and go and see, so they sent 2 chariots with the horses and went to see and found it as the lepers had reported, so the people went out and plundered the camp of the Arameans.

It was such a great raid that there was no longer a lack of provision and as a result, flour and barley was no available at an affordable rate and nothing was inflated and from these accounts we see a clear turnaround from the ridiculous prices of unclean things to the respectable price of proper sustenance of bread.

This account pictures for us a parable of the day of good news, bringing about a deliverance and provision of bread, by the Hand of יהוה..

What we are also able to learn from these events, is the ability of the lepers to recognise that keeping the good news to themselves what not right to do.

We have all sinned and fallen short of the esteem of יהוה, and as we know, leprosy, in Scripture, is often used as a picture of sin and uncleanness.

Our Master has provided for us, through His Blood, a cleansing from our sins and in cleansing us, He has also set us apart as a royal priesthood in the order Malkitseḏeq and we have all been commissioned by Him to go and make taught ones of the nations, immersing them in his Name and teaching them to obey His commands.

These 4 lepers understood the need to go and share the good news.

Their report may not have been believed at first, yet after an inspection team being sent out, their report was believed and deliverance for the city was experienced that day.

No longer would there be the need to be doing the abominable practice of eating their own offspring, as an abundant supply of bread was now available.

This day would cause many to see the provision of the Master and get to taste of His Goodness, while the servant who did not believe the declaration of Elisha, would not get to eat of the new provision of bread, but would only see it and then be trampled to death..

Who has believed our report, we might say, as we consider these events, for we are equipped to understand and acknowledge the entrance into the reign of our Master has been opened to us, by His life, death, resurrection and the waving of the sheaf of the first that He did on the morrow after the Sabbath during the week of Matzot!.

When our Master waved the sheaf of the first – the omer rěshiyth – as our High Priest, He secured the confirmation of the harvest of all who would call upon Him.

The omer price has been paid and we can legally be grafted into Messiah, as His Body, in order to serve Him forever – and have the assurance that ‘if we stay in Him’, we shall be lifted up when He comes again!!!.

The servant who did not believe, was trampled underfoot, as a witness of what will happen to those who lack the belief required to enter the reign of Elohim..

Romiyim/Romans 10:11-17 “Because the Scripture says, “Whoever puts his trust in Him shall not be put to shame.” 12 Because there is no distinction between Yehuḏi and Greek, for the same Master of all is rich to all those calling upon Him. 13 For “everyone who calls on the Name of יהוה shall be saved.” 14 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without one proclaiming? 15 And how shall they proclaim if they are not sent? As it has been written, “How pleasant are the feet of those who bring the Good News of peace, who bring the Good News of the good!” 16 However, not all obeyed the Good News. For Yeshayahu says, “יהוה, who has believed our report?”. 17 So then belief comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of Elohim..

The Good News of peace is for all who call upon the Name of יהוה and put their trust in Him!

The servant of the king did not trust in יהוה and did not have ears to hear the Word of Elohim, as given through Elisha the Prophet..

The lepers confirmed the Word of Elohim when they recognised that this was a day of Good News.

The Hebrew word that is translated as ‘good news’, in verse 9, is the word בְּשׂוֹרָה Besorah – Strong’s H1309 which means, good tidings, news, reward, which comes from the root word בָּשַׂר basar – Strong’s H1319 which means, to bear tiding, to bring good news, messenger of good news’..

Yeshayahu/Isaiah 52:7 “How pleasant upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings good news, who proclaims deliverance, who says to Tsiyon, “Your Elohim reigns!” .

What is the Good News?

The Greek word that is translated as ‘Good News’ is εὐαγγέλιον euaggelion – Strong’s G2098 which is a noun that comes from the verb εὐαγγελίζω euaggelizō – Strong’s G2097 which means, to announce or bring good news, preach the good news..

For the purposes of this message, I will highlight a number of verses that bring to light what the Good News is, or rather, who the Good News is about and in doing so, make it abundantly clear, how important it is for us, as ardent proclaimers of the Good News, to be making sure that we make our bold declaration of the Good News, accompanied with complete obedience to the Torah of Elohim!.

I want to highlight 6 verses from the Book of Acts, which clarifies for us what the Good News is:

Ma’asei/Acts 5:42 “And daily in the Set-apart Place, and in every house, they did not cease teaching and bringing the Good News: יהושע the Messiah!

Ma’asei/Acts 8:35 “And Philip opening his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, brought to him the Good News: יהושע!

Ma’asei/Acts 10:36 “He sent the word to the children of Yisra’ěl, bringing the Good News: peace through יהושע Messiah! He is Master of all.

Ma’asei/Acts 11:20 “But some of them were men from Cyprus and Cyrene, who, when they had come to Antioch, spoke to the Hellenists, bringing the Good News: the Master יהושע!

Ma’asei/Acts 15:35 “And Sha’ul and Barnaḇa continued in Antioch, teaching and bringing, with many others also, the Good News: The Word of יהוה!

Ma’asei/Acts 17:18 “And some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers encountered him. And some were saying, “What does this babbler wish to say?” Others said, “He seems to be a proclaimer of strange mighty ones” – because to them he brought the Good News: יהושע and the resurrection!.

From the verses mentioned above, it is abundantly clear that יהושע Messiah is The Good News! But what about יהושע Messiah makes Him the Good News?

Well, that He is the causer of salvation – that is to say – that יהושע is יהוה our Saviour! This message of Good News is what many disobeyed – as they did not believe the report that the arm of יהוה had now been revealed!.

Our King is coming!!! Are you making that known?

Or do you find yourself being threatened by fleshly matters that should be overcome?.

Our Master is coming with strength and His reward for each one is with Him and He is coming to gather His sheep who know His voice, and have been following Him in the wilderness!

Bread, as we know, is both a picture of community, as we are one bread, as well as being a picture of our Master, who is our Head, the Bread from heaven. And we also know that unless we eat of Him, we have no part in Him, which highlights the lesson on our needed obedience to partake in the Pěsaḥ/Passover Meal, which we cannot do unless we have been immersed in His Name, receiving the circumcision of our hearts that is done from above, for He is our circumcision. We also know that we are to meditate on His Torah, day and night, eating our daily lawful bread, which sustains us and lights our path..

Why I am mentioning this, is to highlight the lesson of the fate of those who do not believe The Good News and see the lesson of those who are not ‘eating of Him’, as pictured through the servant who was trampled in the gate, after seeing the fulfilment of the words of Elisha..

As we consider the need to be obedient in proclaiming the Good News, we are able to see that we can only do so, when we are standing secure in our Master and as we look at the ancient pictographic of the Hebrew word for ‘good news’, we can be further equipped in our belief, as we see this word בְּשׂוֹרָה Besorah – Strong’s H1309 which means, good tidings, news, reward, pictured as follows:.

      blank  blank.

Beyt בְּ:

The ancient script has this letter as blank, which pictures a tent floor plan and means, ‘house’ or ‘tent’. It represents family and the importance of those who are inside the tent as opposed to the tent structure itself..

Shin/Sin – שׂ:

This is the letter ‘shin’ which in the ancient script is pictured as, blank, which is ‘two front teeth’ and carries the meaning of ‘sharp or press, chew or devour’; which is what the teeth do, and also speaks of the sharpened word that comes forth from the mouth, as the teeth ‘chew’ or ‘meditate’ on the Truth, making what comes forth pure and sharp! It also carries the understanding of consuming or destroying – as teeth do to food.

This can give us the meaning of WORD or Words..

Waw וֹ

The ancient pictographic form of this letter is blank, which is a peg or ‘tent peg’ or nail, which was used for securing or tying the tent or other items.

The possibility of it having a Y-shape is to show that it prevents the rope from slipping off. The root meaning of this letter is ‘to add, secure or hook’..

Reshרָ

The ancient script has this letter as blankand is pictured as ‘the head of a man’ and has the meaning of the head of a man as well as chief, top, begging or first.

Top as in the top or head of a body and chief an is head of a tribe or people as well as the one who rules the people..

Hey ה

The ancient script has this letter as blank and is pictured as a man standing with his arms raised up and out as if pointing to something, and in essence carries the meaning of ‘behold’ as in when looking at something very great. It can also have the meaning to ‘breath’ or ‘sigh’ as when looking at a great sight and having your breath taken away so to speak! It also has the meaning of revelation or to reveal something by pointing it out and represents for us the ability of lifting up hands to Him who is to be praised..

This pictographic rendering of the Hebrew word בְּשׂוֹרָה Besorah – Strong’s H1309 which means, good tidings, news, reward, can give us the following meaning:.

THE HOUSE OF THE WORD

IS SECURED IN THE HEAD

WHO IS TO BE PRAISED!.

Our Master and Head, is The Word made flesh, who came to secure for us the promise of our deliverance being made complete, if we stay in Him and in doing so, we are able to lift up hands that are set-apart, in a continual praise for His deliverance and His Word, which we make known to all, with great courage and strength..

The 4 lepers who declared this day as a day of good news, said that they were keeping silent about it and if they had waited until morning light then evil would come upon them.

This too is a great lesson that we are able to learn, which is a lesson on not keeping the Good News silent! Do not put off until tomorrow, what needs to be spoken today!

There is an urgency for the Good News to be told and putting it off is not a good thing to do, but is evil and is a picture of hiding the light, which we are not to do.

The night is far advanced and it is time to put off the works of darkness and put on the armour of light and be bold in bringing the Good News – even when most will reject it!.

That which Elisha had proclaimed, according to the Word of יהוה, came about, as we see verse 16 confirming the clear fact that a seah of fine flour was for a sheqel, and two seahs of barley for a sheqel, according to the word of יהוה

This is another wonderful witness for us, in giving the confidence to our trust in the Word of יהוה, for His promises are yes and aměn in Him!

Qorintiyim Bět/2 Corinthians 1:20 “For as many promises as are of Elohim, in Him they are Yes, and in Him Aměn, to the esteem of Elohim through us..

This passage of Melaḵim Bět/2 Kings 7 is a wonderful parable of deliverance and the lessons on being true ambassadors of our Master, in a time of great distress.

There is a great encouragement for us to be reminded of the promises of our Master being secured in His Word that never fails, while at the same time, there is a severe warning against unbelief.

The Good News of Deliverance is what we are to be proclaiming and in doing so, making sure that we are walking in the belief, bearing a true witness of Messiah and the guarding of His commands, by being doers of the Word and not hearers only, lest we find ourselves having a dead belief which cannot save!.

As we consider the confidence of Elisha and the realisation of the Good News that the lepers had discovered, let us be urgent in our need to be proclaimers of the Besorah of Messiah and not be like the wicked king and his servant that did not believe the Good News.

With us reading this passage on Shabbat, together with the Torah portion from Wayyiqra/Leviticus 14:1-15:33 and the Torah of the cleansing of leprosy, we are able to identify with the Good News of deliverance that has been brought to us, by the life, death and resurrection of Messiah, The Word made flesh, giving us all we need to proclaim Him, having been cleansed and set-apart to serve Him and offer up the continual slaughter offering of praise, to Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvellous light!.

This chapter becomes a very clear mirror for us to look into, as we need to arm ourselves with the belief that works obedience of righteousness unto life, rather than a dead belief that lives in fear and doubt..

The Name אֱלִישָׁע Elisha – Strong’s H477 means, Ěl is salvation, which is the contracted form of אֱלִישׁוּעַ Elishua – Strong’s H474 meaning, ‘ĚL is Salvation’, coming from 2 words;

1) אֵל el –Strong’s H410 meaning, ‘mighty, strong, power and short for Mighty One (Elohim)’ and

2) יָשַׁע yasha – Strong’s H3467 meaning, ‘to deliver, save, salvation’.

This is the man of Elohim that received a double portion anointing and succeeded the prophet Ěliyahu..

This man of Elohim declared the clear Good News of Deliverance and just as his name means that Elohim is Deliverance, we can see that his actions of obedience lined up with that which his name declared.

As taught ones of the Most-High, He has put His Name upon us, which we are to now go and proclaim as the Good News of Deliverance, especially as we see how dark the days are becoming and how many are groping about in the depravity and chaos of wickedness and lawlessness..

As you consider this chapter, ask yourself whether you are standing up and proclaiming the Good News of Deliverance or have you found that you have been the many who are lacking in their belief.

Let this passage be a reminder of what we have in Messiah and the responsibility we have in declaring Him as Saviour, as seen through our lives of obedience to His Word and the courage to declare it without hindrance or fear of distress or threats that surround us!.

THE GOOD NEWS OF DELIVERANCE!.

Romiyim/Romans 12:1-2 “I call upon you, therefore, brothers, through the compassion of Elohim, to present your bodies a living offering – set-apart, well-pleasing to Elohim – your reasonable worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you prove what is that good and well-pleasing and perfect desire of Elohim..

Romiyim/Romans 16:24-27 “The favour of our Master יהושע Messiah be with you all. Aměn25 And to Him who is able to establish you according to my Good News and the preaching of יהושע Messiah, according to the revelation of the secret which was kept silent since times of old, 26 but now has been made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures has been made known to all nations, according to the command of the everlasting Elohim, for belief-obedience. 27 To Elohim, wise alone, be the esteem, through יהושע Messiah forever. Aměn..

יהוה bless you and guard you; יהוה make His face shine upon you and give you favour; יהוה lift up His face upon you and give you Shalom!.
