Leviticus 9:1 - 11:47

2 Samuel 6:1 - 7:17

Shemini WT

This Parashah covers the death of Aaron's 2 sons and the laws of kashrut. It's very important so that we can understand the wonderful love that YHVH has for us, and how HE always desire to keep us healthy but obeying HIS commandments. I will show you scientific evidence why the clean animals are edible and why the unclean animals are not.

Also, Understanding the principles of Suzerain-vassal Covenant will give us a better perspective why Yahweh is so specific about us eating what He says so that we can stay healthy. We are a reflection of our King and if we are sick then the world will wonder why our king does not keep us healthy. So, in his wisdom knowing the end from the beginning gives us instructions so that none of the diseases of Egypt will come upon us. Obedience to his commandments will set us apart from the world.

    Is it possible to get the PowerPoint for the 2010 Torah portion? I briefly looked around the site, but didn’t see anything. Thank you for your wonderful, in depth teachings! I have been learning so much.

  2. Shalom! Thank you for the faithfulness! I don’t know if it’s just my system, but the video is too large in the image box it is in and so I can only see half of the presentation. Also, because of that I don’t have the option to select full screen. LOL! Blessings!

    Thank you Rico and Ryan for the information you gave in the Brit portion. Some of the things I hadn’t heard before. Now I have more studying to do.

    Is it true that regardless of the diference of “wild” versus fatm-raised talaipia that it’s an unclean fish? It does have both fins and scales. I do not eat any farm-raised fish because of the chemicals used to color the meat/flesh. My husband and I buy it when it’s on sale in the grocery store. It’s the wild from Panama. There is a concern that the waters (seas & oceans) are polluted with radiation due to the BP spill and Fukoshima . Although we don’t consume fish but twice a month,we do like seafood. Any thoughts on this issue?

  5. Ricco;

    So we see the different levels of Kedusha, In the Temple, and for cleansing and purification.

    What about the synagogues? and their furnishings? Were they Holy?

    Where did the Ger learn on Sabbath? The Temple or the synagoges?

  6. The way church gets in presense of the LORD is, using one verse, G-d lives in the praises of HIs people.” So, lots of shouting priase the LORD and siinging of praise. What they experience as the presense is their own brain increase of serotonin. Just like worship to them is only singing.
