Genesis 25:19 - 28:9

Malachi 1:1 - 2:7

Toldot wt

This Parashah covers the life of Isaac and Rebekkah, the birth of Jacob and Esau, the selling of the birthright, the famine in the land and Isaac's adventures in Gerar, and the giving of the blessing to Jacob.

This Torah is an important portion for it holds the key to know the end times and to be able to understand the prophetic look into the fight between Esau and Yacob and how that is reveal to us now a days in our fight with Islam. You will see the type and shadow of Messiah in the Torah about the first coming and second of Moshiach Yeshua in the real life of Isaac and the birth of Esau & Yacob. Truly, YHVH has declared the end from the beginning.

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. Question regarding your comment about Simeon and Levi. I went back and read chapter 34 and do not see that they disobeyed Jacob. They did deceive, verse 13 and did not follow “measure for measure”. Their actions where the very opposite of what Jacob feared in verse 30 when noting chapter 35:5. I’ve always thought it should have been Jacob going to his sons saying, “Boys, your sister’s just been raped and where going to set this right.” I can see brother Rico doing this if one of his had been raped? Jacob seems to be absent for Dinah, absent for Leah except when he wanted whatever he wanted. What a mess as you point out.
    Encouraging when you note how all of God’s people are “screw ups”. But like Jacob, Yah looks at the heart with Esau’s heart always being a heart of rebellion. King David’s actions but heart of repentance one of our best examples. Really appreciate the “Edomite mixture” thought brought out in both your teaching and by Ryan in the “Nugget”. Encourage others not to overlook the “Nugget” portion of your teachings.

  2. I was encouraged to see Rebecca Brown’s comment noting date, 11/8/18. I’ve watched over the last months not seeing any recent comments. Good to see Rebecca was blessed and writing to say so. I pray for WIT each morning and am blessed too Rebecca. Thank you to all the teachers at WIT.

  3. I am so thankful for your teachings. I’m blown away about how much rich soil of Messiah is in the Torah. How could we ever write it off as just Old Testament irrelevant to life today! I have had to adjust so much of my life since studying the Torah, but I have done it with complete ease and peace.. Ooo for the first time I am experiencing real Shalom – the peace that utterly destroys chaos. And Praise the Lord able to show my young adult children the need for Torah and they are loving Torah too.

  4. Rico, this is SO much amazing information. Thank you for putting in all these hours of study so that you can pass along this information. What a blessing you are to us! I’m so grateful for you and your whole team.
    Can I ask something about this Torah portion? Even though the muslims have neither the birthright or blessing as a nation, am I correct in understanding that individually there may be those (few) that could turn to YHVH in the latter days (being killed and/or disowned for such ), and receive the blessing of Abraham’s (spiritual) seed as a son of adoption into the Kingdom? Thank you for helping me understand.

    1. Yes, anyone who turns to the Elohim of Abraham and makes the oath of loyalty and keeps the Torah as a constitution is accepted. We must need our master Yeshua to be our Broker of the covenant and we must remember that we serve an equitable Elohim and the clients must show reciprocity by obeying the covenant conditions.

  5. Hey Rico it’s me Pablo from Miami. I just learned from Mike Bales. That you were in Israel I wanted to talk to you and give you some money. That can bring me a good Silver Chain with the efod of Aaron. Please if you get this message writes me back to confirm it. By the way if you have the money and I will pay you back in Florida upon your return thanks.’. Pablo and shalom…

  6. Rico – Blessings. So many of us watch and appreciate very much the Torah portions you’re reading. You are truly a faithful servant of Yah. Time permitting, I also watch the portion’s Rabbi Gordon of reads, as well as Mark Biltz of El Shadai Ministries, and Nehemiah Gordon to name but a few.
