Va-Yigash (Gen 44:18-47:27)

Posted on Jan 2, 2015

122714t ricky  by Rick Ortiz.   The well known story of Joseph who is thrown into a pit by his brothers, sold to the merchants going to Egypt, brought to Potipher’s house.  Put in charge of everything at Potipher’s, Joseph is falsely accussed by Potipher’s wife, put in prison.  He gets out of prison after years only when Pharaoh’s cup bearer remembers, long after a promise to bear witness to him much sooner.  Joseph interprets Pharaoh’s dream of impending famine, and is again put in charge “of all.”  Joseph deals with his brothers when they arrive in Egypt to buy food, but ultimately forgives them.

Mi-Ketz (Gen 41:1-44:17)

122014tp  “Two full years passed then Pharaoh had a dream.”  Two full years from the moment Pharaoh’s cup bearer rose up back to his original  position, that he finally remembered, about Joseph.         Jeremiah 29:11        This is one of the most quoted scriptures among believers today.  For I know the thoughts or the plans that I plan or think toward you says Yahweh.  Thoughts of peace and not of evil to give you a future and a hope.  A lot of this plays into this week’s Torah portion.  Specifically this point, there are times in our life, when we fell like we are walking into a place of evil, that Yahweh has led us into a valley of evil.  But that is not His goal.  It is to give you a future and a hope.  But sometimes that is at the end of a very long journey.  Now, the life of Joseph, I want you to think about that it is a biography.  A biographer thinks, I have this persons entire life, I can’t write it moment by moment.  There are certain lesson’s that I really want to pass it on to people.  And you have to realize, that when we read about Joseph, not only is it written by the hand of God, a story passed to us, but it actually, was planned and written, then actually happened and now written to confirm what Yahweh did….(Continued on audio) Mi-Ketz 2014 by RPF Play Now | Play in Popup |...

Chayyei Sarah

111514tp by Rabbi Paul Falk. If you are reading the first line from the scroll:  (Hebrew reading ) would translate “To the years of Sarah’s life was one hundred and twenty seven.” Finding Isaac a wife;  it says this:  When Abraham was old well advanced in age and Yahweh had blessed Abraham in all things, so Abraham said to the oldest servant of his house who ruled over all he had, please put your hand under my thigh so that I make you swear by…  The eldest servant ruled over all he had, you hear that phrase again when Joseph is in charge and he ruled a number of houses, he ruled over all the person had.  As a part of the responsibility. We read that again in revelation in regard that there will be those who will have thrones and be in charge, servants of Yahweh who will be in charge.  Right?  Servants of Yahweh in charge of all he has.  Genesis 24: 3-4.  And I will make you swear by Yahweh the Elohim of Heaven and Elohim of earth.  That you will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of Caananites among whom I dwell, but you shall go to my country, and to my family and take a wife for my son Isaac.  He is very emphatic, “You shall Not”…(continued in audio) Chayyei Sarah (Gen 23:1 to 25:18) Play Now | Play in Popup |...

Lech Lecha Genesis 12:1 to 17:27

Posted on Nov 2, 2014

110114tp by Rabbi Paul Falk.  Yahweh said to Abram get out of your country. We are going to start at genesis 15, verses 17 to18. “And it came to pass that when the sun went down and it was dark, behold there appeared a smoking oven and a burning torch.” Basically, you have two basic torches that are going to pass between the animals. To pass between those pieces on that same day Yahweh made a covenant with Abram saying “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates.” To the question of How will attain to all of this? Go and get these animals cut them in half, split them up, and I will make covenant with you. And the point of the covenant is that we would both walk between those animals, and if either of us did not keep the covenant we would wind up like one of those animals. …So what does covenant mean?
