  1. Shalom Rico, hey just wanted to say thanks your Anet portion answered one of my questions on Isaiah.
    Isaiah 38:8
    Behold, I will bring again the *shadow* of the degrees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees, by which degrees it was gone down.

  2. Likely way too late for this to be seen but as I continue to ponder this I wonder if you ever have come across a connection between Joshua and Caleb saying they will be our bread and the fact that grasshoppers were the smallest element in the Israelite diet? Also if the part of the grumbling against Moses’ wife specifically mentioning her as cushite, she could ‘ve been very dark… it would be quite the irony of Miriam turning white. Maybe this was at least partially a racial/second class Israelite situation or maybe it’s not.

  3. Shalom Ryan. This is the very best teaching I’ve heard from you and very timely as I discuss my place in Israel as a kidushim. I don’t understand why Messianic JEWS insist on calling me a gentile as a Torah-following Believer in Yeshua. I also have orthodox Jews who say I am NOT a ger b/c a ger is a Jew, therefore I don’t qualify as a Christian to be a ger. That is the Jewish way of keeping Christians who follow Torah OUT of Israel.
    I look forward to to fulfillment of Ephesians 2:19 when my legal residence will be Jerusalem, Israel, where both the native and the sojourner can live in Shalom.

    • I shaved it about a week ago, too hot in florida. plus the beard in this verse in leviticus
      26 You shall not eat anything with its blood. You shall not practice augury or witchcraft. 27 You shall not round off the hair on your temples or mar the edges of your beard. 28 You shall not make any gashes in your flesh for the dead or tattoo any marks upon you: I am the LORD.
      29 Do not profane your daughter by making her a prostitute, that the land not become prostituted and full of depravity. 30 You shall keep my sabbaths and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD.

      these verses are in context dealing with Apotropaic rites which deal ritual for the dead.

  4. !0 tests (footnote in my Bible) – either not literal but an expression of the Israelites repeated acts of rebellion or 10 specific tests – fear at the Red Sea (Ex 14:10-12), two demands for water (Ex 15″24, 17:2,3) two demands for food (Ex 16:3, Nu 11:4-6), twice disregarding YHWH’s instructions regarding manna (Ex 16:20,27) the incident with golden calf (Ex 32:1-25), discontent 3 days after leaving Sinai (Nu 11:1) and people’s response to report of the spies.
    Your Torah teaching is WONDERFUL, like manna.
    Appreciate you beyond what words can say, grateful for you. Pray nightly for you, your family, for provision, for wisdom and direction.

  5. I agree with Pam. I wept while listening to it at the conference and now every time I am alone I end up weeping every time and sometimes even have to pray on my face. It makes me so thankful that He chose me to be a part of His family.

    For me this teaching went hand in hand with Brad Scott’s teaching on our responsibility to the world to pray this daily and live the torah so that we can be a part of its healing. My prayer life has been given new meaning and taken a whole new turn.

    Shalom all!
