Don't Forget to

This Parashah covers the 2nd Song of Mosheh. Chapter 32 of Deuteronomy is called in the Ancient Near Eastern Context, a Covenant lawsuit and it legal ramifications to the breaking of the covenant. Also, it serves as a witness against the children of Israel. We should make an effort to learn this song and understand our duty to the covenant with our Great Suzerain YHVH.

We have seen how the world is taking a deep breath trying to figure out what to do in Syria in recent years and what kind of action to take for their chemical weapons use. One of the main arguments is about what legal right does the U.S. has to declare a limited war on Syria. The language used in this political issue is that of a covenant lawsuit against Syria for transgressing on a Covenant they signed 100 years ago. Syria agreed that they would not use chemical weapons and they broke that Covenant. So, now the world can take legal case to stop the killings in Syria. Haazinu is written as a song but with the legal characteristics of a Covenant Lawsuit. We will also connect some of the Metaphors used in the Ancient Near East with connection to the Torah and the message that YHVH is trying to convey to Israel as their God and Maker.

  1. New Self Talk: firstly there is a law to return every lost thing; Holy Spirit return this book to me or: I am able to find the resource; wait one minute please; I will find this book shortly

  2. Rico, the Brit teaching this year is a MARVELLOUS summary of the inter-connectedness of the 3 fall moedim. Many thanks for bringing in the relationship of the apostolic writings! Now, I have a MUCH CLEARER understanding of Revelation and the Pauline epistles!

  3. HalleluYah!! Praise You Abba!!! Finally…someone willing to take a stand and just teach us the truth out of the Word instead of trying not to step on anyone else’s toes! I am so done with political correctness…tell it like it is! After all, it is our Great King of Creation whom we are wanting to please. How can we do that if nobody is willing to say anything because they are concerned about what a man may think? Thank you Rico for this powerful teaching. May Abba bless you as you continue to boldly teach His truth!

  4. I’ve always wondered when the earlier and latter rains are, and thank you to pointing it out, and in the tithing of the cattle, and the produce, as I am a farmer, this is very pertinent. Thanks for studying this out. Blessings to you and your family.

  5. Thank you sooooo much for these teachings. They really help me in understanding how Abba sees the wrongs done to me and also they help me know how
    I should respond & how to appeal to my King

  6. Amen! for your exhortation and the good Word and Torah nuggets as well! : ) I heard you talk about your health. Do you know a physical therapist? I know a co-worker who is 15+ years older than you (not sports oriented). He had sciatica. A physical therapist helped him overcome it with various exercises to help balance the body. We both work a very physical repetitive motion type of job, I have recently took his advice and started going as well. It is amazing that exercises designed just for you can help your body heal. I am over that age hill myself, but praise Yah for His mercy endures forever! In a few weeks I am strengthening underused muscles and strengthening my feet (for starters). My body parts are waking up and I feel so much better spiritually as well. May you be strengthened dear Brother from head to toe and in your soul as you teach us to follow that ancient path Home.

    Proverbs 4:

    25 Let your eyes look straight ahead,
    fix your gaze on what lies in front of you.
    26 Level the path for your feet,
    let all your ways be properly prepared;
    27 then deviate neither right nor left;
    and keep your foot far from evil

    Shalom! Shalom! : )

  7. Dear Rico; Thank you so much for these wonderful teachings & for the updates. It really helps to put things in perspective with using the commentaries to understand the present from the past. I just love your heart
    Blessings to All

  8. looking so forward to the brit hadasha connections in the coming year!This ANE focus is just so very helpful in understanding idioms and connections. Thank you!
    in this teaching you said you asked why Yeshua said gather as a hen…..then you explained the griffin/eagle without going back specifically to His word ‘hen’….can you help finish the connection for me? The hen being a ‘family’ bird with chicks while a griffin not so much?

  9. Rico, I don’t want to sound stupid, but I don’t understand the use of the term “covenant lawsuit” when it comes to the Song of Moses.

    A lawsuit in today’s world is a litigation that is held in a court room… Party A has a complaint against Party B and asks the court for claimed damages (of Party A’s possessions or health, or whatever it may be).

    Thank you so much for all your work… I always refer to you, Daniel, and Ryan and your various workers there as “Rico & Sons” . . . . . hope that brings a smile to your face; no disrespect intended. We love you and I pray for you and for your family and all who are associated here.

    1. Sorry… I thought I was on a different teaching… but the question about Covenant Lawsuit is still a question.. How does it compare with our “litigation” practices? Thanks for your help.
