Torah Portion Vayigash Complete 2021

This Parashah covers the restoration of Yoseph to his family in Egypt. This Torah portion is a great biblical example of Prophetic types and Shadows in the Bible or Using Jewish levels of interpretations it would be a Sod & Remez, Joseph as the Role of Moshiach Ben David. Truly Yeshua was correct when He said Moses in the Torah spoke concerning him.

The Future restoration of Israel is found in this Torah Portion and prophetically we are living right now some of the signs of the chaotic situation in the world today. Is amazing how wise is our King that truly reveals the end from the beginning.

We will also take a look at the position Joseph held as Grand Vizier and Establisher of Justice and Righteousness in Egypt. This concept of justice or ma'at in Egypt was the basis for all things in not only government but in the individual's life as well. By investigating Joseph's life as Vizier, we gain even more insight to Yeshua's coming as the True Establisher of Justice and Righteousness on all the Earth.

  1. I want to see and hear it but all we have is an iPad2. Apparently the feed doesn’t support our device. I hope someday Rico and Victor can look into that. We really appreciate what your ministry is doing and will always support anyone who supports the Torah.


  2. Great portion Rico,

    I shared this on the blog but thought to share it here as well since there was so much mention of type and shadow.

    Acts 7:13 And at the second time Joseph was made known to his brethren; and Joseph’s kindred was made known unto Pharaoh.

    Joseph was made known to his brethren at the second time. How marvelous the type and shadow! The first time Yahushua was seen by His brethren after the flesh, they knew Him not, but when they see Him the second time He shall be known by them.

    The Holy Spirit has brought out this important point, more than once through out scriptures. It was this way with Moses and Israel. “And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens; and he spied an Egyptian smiting a Hebrew, one of his brethren. And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that, there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand” (Ex. 2:11, 12). The brethren of Moses did not appreciate his intervention on their behalf? They despised him; they said, “Who made thee a prince and a judge over us” (Ex. 2:14). But the second time (after a long interval, during which Moses was hid from them) that he appeared unto them, they accepted him as their Leader.

    They said, in effect, as Israel said of Christ, “We will not have this Man to reign over us” (Luke 19:14).

    It was this way with Joshua and Israel too. The first time that Joshua appeared before the Nation was as one of the two “spies” who brought to them a favorable report of the land, and counselled his brethren to go up and possess it. But Israel rejected this message of Joshua & Caleb. (Num. 13). It was not until long after when Joshua came before the people, publicly, for the second time, that they accepted him as their Leader, and were conducted by him into their inheritance.

    The same ‘principle’ is illustrated, again, in the history of David. David was sent by his father seeking the welfare of his brethren; “And Jesse said unto David his son, take now for thy brethren an ephah of this parched corn, and these ten loaves, and run to the camp to thy brethren. And carry these ten cheeses unto the captain of their thousand, and look how thy brethren fare, and take their pledge” (1 Sam. 17:17-18). But when he reached them, they resented his kindness, and their “anger was kindled against David” (1 Samuel 17:28), and it was not until years later that they, together with all Israel, owned him as their King.

    As pointed out in you’re message, these are types and shadows of Yahushua The first time He appeared to Israel they received Him not; even though He came as The Redeemer, but at His second advent they shall accept Him as their Leader and King.

  5. Gen. 46:9
    A dedicated vassel.
    Wonderfully seperated.
    Surrounded with walls, my vineyard.
    Shama! Israel.
    Of the day of God.
    By his right hand, you will be united.
    God has established it.
    It is made Holy.
    Come close to God.
    Become his friend, and Yahweh’s glory will drive out bitterness and gall.
    Give thanks with open hands.
    Break forth and appear from your prison, those who are pitied and are spared from God’s anger.
    He will bring his reward.
    By his blood, the four corners of the earth will cry out.
    Hedge about and dwell with us!
    At the streangth of the Lamb on the tree of God.
    He is our hope, our expectant one. The Holy one of Israel.
    Full of justice.
    A troop gathered to cut him off.
    Now observe my festival of rest.
    Rise, O’Rise. Take dominion O’Valiant one, Lion of God.
    Go foward and take the right hand side. Become equal and rule Yahweh’s creation with splender.
    Companion of my God, my King. To rule and to judge.
    Be eager with enjoyment from your struggles.
    For he will divide them from you.
    Because he was poured out, he has paid your iniquities.
    He will add mercy upon mercy, to cause you to forget your suffering, and you shall bear fruit.
    For the Son of the right hand has built a house of First Fruits.
    Flowing with grain.
    The word of the LORD is a delight.
    Our brother is the cheif of the Wave offering.
    And to him fugitives seek protection.

  6. Thank you for blessing me richly with this weeks portion. I appreciate the way you invite comments for I believe there is fresh illumination when one keeps the sabbath appointment of the Lord. I must add, you make me cry everytime you sing the blessing over us. Thank you, I pray Eph : 17-19 over you and yours.

  7. Shalom Brother Rico!

  8. My brother Rico,
    Thank you again for a well researched Torah portion this week. The additional resources you use and encourage the members to obtain are of highest quality and reinforce the qualitative information you request we futher study to find and search for ourselves (e.g. The book of the Upright-Jasher). The soft cover references are not expensive and affordable. I encourage all members to read and purchase the books of Enoch and Jasher. As stated by you, these resources provide references to help us understand Torah portions. May Y-h continue to bless you in wisdom and eternal service to him.
