Torah Portion Beshalach Complete

Exodus 13:17 - 17:16

Judges 4:4 - 5:31


This Parashah covers the flight from Egypt and significantly the crossing of the Sea of Reeds. It's also about the Ancient Understanding of the Battle of the Cosmos and the Sovereignty of YHVH over the pagan gods. Did you know? Of the Ancient Trial by Water and the belief that the gate of the underworld was the sea. Did you know that in the Ancient Near east if you came out of the trial by water and survived the currents then you are found innocent from the crime they were accused of.

Have you ever wondered why Moses was not killed after the daughter of Pharaoh found him? Did you know why YHVH selected the waters to bring chaos during the Flood? Did you know why Yeshua walked on water and what was the message that can only be understood by knowing the Ancient near eastern Mythology and beliefs. I pray that this Portion will open your understanding of reasons for judgement from YHVH.

I am a teacher of Scriptures, Torah follower, and believer in Messiah Yeshua. I have been given the opportunity to share the Word of God with many believers around the world. My work as a servant of the Most High God has allowed me to be a voice to spread the good news of the New Testament, unveiling its truth through context and the obedience to the Almighty through his Torah.

  1. Rico, shouldn’t Shemot 19-24 be read together, seeing it is the covenant Yahuah is establishing with the Israelites.

    What is the different of the book of the law and the covenant?

  2. Rico… Shalom
    What an incredible study! An excellent description of how “Grace” is tied to YHWH’s ancient covenant with Abraham in Gen 15: in that Grace is a “gift of love” that is expressed to the children of Yisrael who live in obedience to the stipulations of His Torah. It is very comforting to know that YHWH’s patronage loyalty will be performed as we go into these end of days. The entire teaching was very informative.
    Thanks much, Bruce Olson

  3. Shalom!

    Your teaching touched my heart in a very personal way!! You spoke out words that was right into my situation. Again, thank you for sharing what JHWH has put on your heart!

    Greetings from Norway, Irene

  4. Brother Rico, This was the absolute BEST TEACHING from you for several reasons. 1. YOUR ZEAL after having visited Israel is infectious! 2. YOUR HEART for Adonai is creditable, and indeed, our love for HIm must surpass knowledge, and our passionate praises as His people must give YHVH honor. 3. YOUR CONFIRMATION that at this same time, Adonai has asked me to record ME CHAMOECHA in the recording studio lets me know that I too, am hearing from Him, and this blessed my socks off today, to hear you speak of this enthronement song in such perfect timing while I am currently in the recording studio working on this very song. I was blessed to hear you speak of this song, and my heart swells with adoration to our King: Me Chamoecha baleem Adonai, me kamoecha nehdahr bakodesh. Nora the tehelote ohsay fehleh:) Shabbat Shalom, DeVora Clark

  5. Shalom Rico,
    Thank you for your Torah teachings and feeding YHVH’s sheep.

    Oh and thank you for making them long….LOL

    Blessings in Messiah Yeshua,
    Cliff and Leesa Neeley

  6. Ryan Thank You
    for rendering an understanding of Torah law or teaching? Also, for hating without cause. So everything is to be done decently and in order. So, if I feel/think one has done me wrong, I need to first consider if a law was broken; if so, do I have sufficient evidence to file a charge? Not every “offense” I feel is a law breaker, sometimes, i’ve just woke up on wrong side of the bed and was too sensitive about what someone said or did; then I need to get over it, or at least take it to my neighbor and say hey, ya know it really hurt my feelings when you said, xxxx; and give them opporutnity to apologize and be close again. Think we hear too much tooo often “not to take offense” when we don’t really define correctly what “offense” is. Usually, it sounds like we are not allowed to have feelings; that if I feel hurt over a remark that somehow that makes me the bad guy.

  7. Shalom Ricco, welcome back to Eqypt.

    Praise G-d!

    You showed 2 pictures one brown a winged bird? and one similary a women kneelings, harms streached like wings; reminds me of the menorah. Two pillars, Solomons Temple had two pillar Boaz and ____? Also what is in the two pillars, like YeHoVah right and left hand (governance) so very amazing.

    Than you for your researach, study, prayer and sharing. His people perish for lack of knowledge and vision; without His knowledge, we cannot have His vision.

    Wish you could share your time in the His Holy Land with us.

    Bey for now

    Your Sister In Yahshua,

  9. Thank you for all of your hard work. Studying can take a lot out of a person and then to turn around and teach it to others is even harder. Sometimes, things make a whole lot of sense in your own mind, but when you try to explain it, sometimes it becomes hard. You do an excellent job at explaining scripture to us and for that I am grateful. I pray you have a prosperous year in your understanding, your health, in your relationships, and in your finances. May YHVH bless you.

  10. Dear Rico,
    Thank you for all that you do. Posting all the GLC teachings and keeping up with the Torah portions even while traveling. They are valuable beyond explanation to our family. My daughter and I pray for you and your family each day. We have recently added to our prayer for you for “confidence without any fear, for we know YAHWEH has blessed this ministry….”, I realize that you have a very wide audience (praise God!) and realize that the reason you explain a lot of times about using rabbinical sources, etc. is due to your deep connection to the responsibility you have as a Sheppard for us….while we await Yeshua. I just wanted to encourage you and say that I and my family trust you, your testimony and zeal have more than “convinced” me where your heart (and direction) is. To the service of the Creator blessed is He! I am just one person but I would say I’d like to hear more and more about what you are reading not so much why you are using the resource. All the love,prayers and support from our family to yours. May YAHWEH continue to bless you. Thank you for all you do.
