  1. let’s be clear, there are “tongues of men and of angels”…and there are also “demonic tongues” (of fallen angels), so some of the so-called babbling should be treated with deep reverence (since it it the Ruach HaKodesh who is speaking), and some with great “concern”…much discernment (and greater reverence, perhaps) needed. shalom

  2. I am amazed that many believe they only had manna to eat for 40 yrs. Would God really do that? Manna was their grain and their animals grain. They had their flocks with them. They could have had manna pancakes, lamb chops, steaks. It was their bread!

  3. In chapter 14, the Hebrew verb in verse 14 is in the niphal or passive form, so rather than “The LORD will fight for you…”, it seems better translated “The LORD will be embattled for you…” Verse 27 supports this were the word translated “overthrew” is וַיְנַעֵר which means he “shook off” the Egyptians. It’s as if Yehovah says “Bring it on!” Then the Egyptians see their wheels falling off and realize they are fighting Him and not Israel, He shakes them off, and then Moses closes the waters over them.

  4. I thank everyone, especially the young for teaching me the words of my beloved

  5. Great idea about the mentallity of a slave. I was thinking thats probably why Yahovah had Moses raised in pharoah’s house, because he had been free his whole life. Moses was able to help them think differently.

  6. Praise yahshua all,
    I tend to agree with you sister, now let us get a bit churchy as that seems to be the tasteless flavour in our day. Shaul says some plant and some water but elohim gives the increase in short we grow in him, as he allows us to grow, and quite sure if we choose incorrectly elohim will correct us as he deems fit for us. For example the three possible routes we will take to how the benei yisrael left bondage (the fifth), is elohims leading as we should and are hopefully trusting him, not man, unless he is an instrument in elohims hand, to mould and shape us. For instance and not wanting to get personal, as this is a personal relationship with our creator. There are three who we listen to in these transmissions and they don’t all share the same revelation on who the messiah or moshiach is. All can be correct on his appearance (there will be a messianic period), the difference will lie in the scheduled event ie: when, the first or the second occasion and his or the identity of messiah/moshiach. The fact is that not all possibilities will be correct. So we can be correct in the hebrew appilication, but this does not extend to determination of the correctness of ones personal relationship with elohim, or in this case our application in other languages. In some countries they have numerious variations in one particular language, even hebrew has the scriptural old and modern hebrew, new hebrew, our scholars will have to bow to the fact that they are not entirely the same. My lean towards a superiour stance in the last sentence is intentional, the spelling of superiour is also intentional, with emphasis on the our, intentional, well, that our intentions, should be global. If i may in my insignificant capacity, the only globalisation that should be our prayer, is a deep ruach and emet (spirit and truth) walk with elohim, but once again this is personal. In the tasteless section of scripture, it speaks about and many are quotations, of mockers and the mouth being the challenge to control, (place the brain into gear, what is pure, what is protitable etc, before engaging the mouth). Should our mouth be conquered then we basically have won a great victory. Well my scriptures tell me, that no battle is won without, el gibour/our elohim, who according to shaul alone gives the increase. So what is our part? Sow and water, for it is elohim that we are serving not man, so let elohim develope our personal relationship with him, for he alone gives and takes and he alone should increase in us. Sorry brothers but this was necessary. May yahshua bless you. Shalom and remember that he loves us all. Especially those who are trying to please him.

  7. I have so thoroughly enjoyed the richness of your discussions. Thank you. However, periodically I hear mocking of other people’s beliefs. I speak in tongues and fully believe that this is from Yehovah. I also believe in divine healing. I don’t believe that the air of superiority that comes with making fun of other people’s beliefs is ever pleasing to Yehovah.
