Exodus 30:11 - 34:35

1 Kings 18:1-39

Ki Tisa (1)

This Parashah covers the final instruction on the tabernacle, the incident of the golden calf, Mosheh's intercession, and the giving of the 2nd set of tablets

This is the abomination that our forefathers committed at the foot of the mountain of YHVH. We need to learn that the camp of Yah is holy, and the people who saw the cloud, the Red Sea open, and the manna fall from heaven, still worshiped other god. What will happen to us, who have never seeing any of those miracles? May the mercy of our father be always with us, and I pray that our Messiah will always stand up for us as we repent and search our hearts.

In the nugget we will discuss a few underlying legal principles found within the chapters concerning the Golden Calf.

Have you ever wondered why it was a "calf" that the Israelites chose to fashion as the image of a bull?
Why is it that not all the Israelites were killed for partaking in the incident?
Is this a sinful act considered to be ma'al or willful trespass against YHWH?
What is the connection in chapter 34 to the golden calf and the "jealousy of YHWH"?

Lastly, we will also see the parallels between Yeshua and Mosheh and the restoration of God's honor.

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. It helps when we take things out of the “relligious demominational” thinking we’ve been sourounded with; and put ourselves in “seek first the Kingdom; not religion of G-d”

  2. Ryan, so
    all nations governments operate on some level like this, not everyone gets to be with the highest level in governance; just as Queen Esther, not even she had the right to run into the throne room, she had security clearance; however, she needed an appointment. Everything must be done in honor and order; there is protocal for every nation. Even 1st nations people in US had some governance and protocal.

  3. Rayan;

    thanks for your teaching. You know in listening to Joe Good’s teaching on Temple Service, Priests, and levels of kedoshim; I am wondering if what we are talking about put in Kingdom, Kingly Temple terms is “levels of internal security”. Like in the White House not everyone is cleared to be in the Preisdent’s office. Not just anyone can come to Buckingham Palance and have tea with the Queen; People must have a security clearance; depending on what part of gov’t we want to visit.

  4. Nice work Daniel ! Good presentation. Looks like I need to find the difference between the first step blood indexing to the next which is was their annointing oil for elevating to legal status?

  5. It would seem as though we have no person(s) from time of Shaul, who received and passed on through generations to us; this kind of power and authority. That is the “chain of lineage authority” has been broken.

  6. The Veil was RENT, from top to bottom, and the final Blood Sacrifice was Yeshua.
    If you are looking forward to blood sacrifice on some false altar, some temple of satan,
    I hope you at least learn from the experience of you, personally, feeling the blade,
    and feel the lifeblood pumping out of your false-worshipping carcasse.
    YHWH made clear that the only real Jews are those inwardly Truthful.
    Yeshua was the last sacrifice our LORD ever wants to see.
    All of this looking-backwards into the Temple SHOULD educate you as to the Truth of Yeshua.
    There are not going to be any more blood sacrifices in any Positive, Godly World.
    You boys goof around and assert that it is OKAY to allow Mossad to murder in
    the name of so-called “Israel”. You destroyed millions of Human HOLY VESSELS,
    and the MOST HIGH is not pleased with all your skull-cap wearing “Whited Sepulchres”.
    It is clear that the True Israel is walking around in human bodies, all around the World.
    Stop supporting the Weapons-Billionaire-Merchants of Death. Stop the Satanic “Israel”.
    Wake up and smell the BLOOD! You are not innocent, if you speak in support of EVIL!

      I can assure you that in ALL my years I have YET to know more DEDICATED, UPSTANDING, HUMBLE, RIGHTEOUS, SELFLESS, KIND, LOVING, PATIENT teachers than Rico, Daniel & Ryan who are faithful to YaHuWaH and Yahuwshuwa & are faithful servants and ambassadors for His Kingdom. It literally crushes my heart when I hear people, especially those who claim to represent my King, speak in such a condemning hateful manner, spouting lies about humble servants of The Almighty,
      Can’t you present your viewpoints or questions in a respectable manner?
      You couldn’t possibly have spent any time studying with these men because they have dedicated countless hours of time to study & taught in-depth teachings about all the different sacrifices, and did Yahuwshuwa do away with them all forever? Has He? You stated : “There are not going to be any more blood sacrifices in any Positive, Godly World”. Really? Is that in Scripture? Are you sure about that? Are you familiar with the Book of Ezekiel? Read it! Read the whole thing. We will have another Temple & there will be sacrifices again. The Temple will be different in some aspects ; but, once again…. Rico teaches extensively on this subject. And regarding the veil…. you could have learned so much about that in it’s proper context right here! That is if you weren’t so hateful & you could actually humble yourself to learn something from people who know what they’re teaching. There is a lot of false teaching going around about which veil was rent (there was more than one in the Temple) and what did that actually represent? And I’ve heard so many people declare that the Veil between the Holy Place & the Holy of Holies was rent so now we have “FULL access to the Holy of Holies”. Yikes! That is not true! That is a false doctrine & is just plain dangerous for people to claim the same level of authority or position as The King!
      My husband and I have been studying with Rico, Daniel & Ryan for about 5 years now. They are all firm in their conviction that EVERYTHING they teach must be verified in the Scriptures. They state this in every single one of their teachings. It is our duty & obligation to search the Scriptures thoroughly & test everything.
      You have a lot of anger in you but your anger is misdirected & you have several different things all mixed up together. You are angry at some people so you lump a bunch more in with those!
      Just as in the days of Yahuwshuwa there are always some who are more politically motivated & / or act crookedly for their own gain, and there are always many that are more focused on obeying man-made laws than the pure Law (Torah) of the Almighty. There are some who are just downright rebellious & refuse instruction because they lend their ears to false doctrine & don’t listen to sound instruction.

      We have the same problem today everywhere!
      But always remember that YaHuWaH’s Name is on His Land & the people that bear His Name & though some people operating in “government” or in some “religious circles” may be unrighteous you must remember that The Almighty puts leaders in place to accomplish His will . And He tests His people to see who they will obey. He even states He sends false prophets to test us! He makes this clear in His Word. He even raises up adversaries against His people to bring about repentance. He is in the business of RESTORATION, back to Him and His ways!
      But you cannot lump all Jews or all Israelis or all Torah teachers in together & presume you know what they are doing or teaching when it is PLAIN you do not.
      And having studied with Rico, Daniel & Ryan now for 5 years I can say unequivocally that you are not only twisting the Words of Scripture about YaHuWaH and Yahuwshuwa – but you are speaking falsehoods about my brothers and I am begging you to be quiet & be a student and do your homework and thoroughly search out the matter & be willing to be instructed by people like Rico before you spout off falsehoods & accusations! And I will be so bold to encourage you if you claim to be a disciple of Yahuwshuwa Ha Moshiach to humbly ask forgiveness from my brothers who you have leveled false accusations against.
      You know…. not all Christians are wholehearted towards YaHuWaH. Not all Jews either – but according to Scripture which still stands – regardless of our “background” or ethnic identity (DNA) in order to be pleasing to YaHuWaH we must keep His commandments – that has NOT changed! If you are willing to be a student then, if you’re patient, your misunderstandings will be cleared up.
      Don’t get religions or politics confused with the True Instructions (Torah) of YaHuWaH.
      Sincerely, Cassandra Conroy

  7. Thank you for the great teaching Ryan, it really helped to clarify many of the questions I had while reading the portion this week & a lot more. Blessings to you & your family. Shabbat Shalom

  8. Awesome teaching Ryan! So many great points were made – the nation was not priests – they were to be servants of the priests, the ties to Yeshua and Moshe and many others. Just a great teaching!! Todah! Shabbat shalom everyone!

  9. Ryan!!! wow Ryan!! there were so many good points, but I say it is on the profound level how you show the picture/snapshot/prophetic insight when you speak of ‘outside the camp’–where the Shekinah comes to Moses who is not a priest. And then on earth Yeshua would not be a priest, but now is THE High Priest. Where? outside the camp!! wow!! yes!! and historically there was a day when the temple contained the Shekinah and yes, there will be a day when there will be a temple–the tabernacle of David restored. The frosting on the cake is the understanding of the priesthood being restored in that day. A mystery is beginning to be revealed. Thank you for your piece of the understanding!! This is in the 2015 portion of KiTisa as I see all the comments lumped together.
