  • @26:19 youzz keep saying The Angel of yhvh, but the text says “an angel of yhvh”

    Wouldn’t the 2 be different?

  • “Egypt abounded in horses and a cavalry with chariots. Notice the command is that the king not use the people of Israel to aid him in multiplying horses from or like Egypt. As it pertains to episode #4 and Joseph being told by an angel of Yehovah to go to Egypt, the context is entirely different and Deut. 17:16 in no way applies. Joseph is being sent there to hideout for a while, not deal in horses.”

    Also note that one meaning of the Hebrew word “derek” is the way or mode or manner of living or acting. I agree with Aron. The context is about a king multiplying horses to himself.

  • I find it interesting that Keith and Nehemia only considered the prophets from the Tanakh as those that can fill the words of Amos 3:7. Are we to believe, as Judaism maintains, that Y’hoevah has already assigned ALL his prophets only in the past and has no more prophets today or in the future? I know of at least one prophet who was warned of the Wuhan virus and its deaths a year ago and what is to follow. It would be hard to believe there has been only one warning. Anyone else?

  • No printable download with this one? I was hoping to read along and add to the first three print-outs.

  • I listened to Hebrew Pearl’s episode #4. You mentioned not knowing why Joseph was given instruction to go to Egypt (Matthew 2:15), when God commanded Isreal not to return in the OT. My Bible has a foot note to the verse, Matthew 2:15 as being referenced from Hosea 11:1: “When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son….” Could this direction show a fulfillment of the Prophets word? I do not know Hebrew, so do not know the original context, that is why I ask. Also, could he write this to show evidence of Jesus being the Messiah who fulfilled Scripture in order to reach them?

  • The most striking similarity is of course that baby Moses was removed from his Hebrew environment in order to save his life (just as Yeshua). And we all know about Herod’s and Pharaoh’s slaughter of the newborns.

    And the basket, i.e. the ark of bulrushes is a parallel to Noah’s Ark, which in turn foreshadows the Messiah (Noah’s Ark is indeed sitting on the Ararat mountains, don’t get tricked out by snopes.com).

    It is interesting that the ark – through an earthquake – emerged on 15 May 1948, the day when the State of Israel emerged. The slope on which it sits mean “judgment”, the nearest village “sacrifice”, and a rock outcrop has pierced the vessel into the side – too coincidental (and no wonder the world ignores it and explains it away).

  • Great episode! I liked the wee info on the LXX having “YHVH” initially.

    I think the confusion about “the Lord” is deliberate, coming from the author of confusion who works through Rome. Besides promoting lawlessness, the other main strand is the supposed trinity, and the latter can be more easily sold through “the angel of the Lord” (yes, the Messiah did pre-exist but not as “the angel of the Lord”). The English nearly always reads, “THE angel of the Lord” though the Hebrew says “AN angel of the Lord” – it seems these changes are done to promote Rome’s central doctrine.

    The title “Lord” was only given by God to the Messiah AFTER the resurrection. Thus, they are some passages in the Brit HaChadasha were “kyrios” ought NOT neither to be translated as “Yehovah” nor “Adonai” (but my Hebrew is not good enough for that).

    It’s then linked to the burning bush, etc., and bang, – “See, Jesus is God because he was the angel speaking out of the burning bush.” Many versions put Yeshua’s words “I AM” in caps, just like “I AM THAT I AM” in Exodus (though it’s I WILL BE THAT I WILL BE); whether on purpose or due to trinitarian bias, billions are led to be leave that Yeshua is Yehovah.

    Yes, in going to Egypt, Avraham, Yaakov, Yosef, et al. all foreshadow the Messiah, but I think Moshe is the clearest example:

    Moshe fled Egypt for his life, and returned later to save his people.
    Yeshua fled Israel for his life, and returned later to save his people.

    The ultimate parallel is between God’s firstborn son ISRAEL and God’s firstborn son YESHUA, the latter being the embodiment of Israel and of the Torah, if you will.

    Egypt represents the world, standing in mud the whole day represents being in sin, Pharaoh is the adversary, the taskmasters correspond to the shedim, etc., and Moshe had to come into Egypt to save souls, just as Yeshua had to come into the world to save souls. Sorry for being “preachy” but the Blood of the Lamb paved the way from slavery to freedom, and the crossing of Yam Suph separated Israel from Egypt/The World (foreshadowing water and spirit mikveh).

    God call his fledgling son Israel out of Egypt to be a light to the world, and God called his fledgling son Yeshua out of Egypt to be a light to the world.

    Types and antitypes without end…

  • This episode 4 is the first that caused me a bit of concerned curiosity. Why? Bullet point: Yehovah can/does violate His own Law. That was not a ‘pearl’ I expected to hear from the recorded life of Joseph in Matthew ch. 2. I admit that I am not a prophet nor the son of a prophet–not even a Hebrew scholar. Yet, it seems to me that certain confidence in some is also doubtful in others to say Yehovah violates His own Law. The examples mentioned only confirm to me that Yehovah did not violate His own Law.

    Deut. 17:16 – But [the king] shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way.

    In Num 14:4, Moses tells us when Israel wanted to make a captain and return to Egypt: a passage that surely informed Jeremiah in Jer 42:15 when Yehovah points out the desire of people that “set your faces to enter into Egypt to sojourn there.”

    Egypt abounded in horses and a cavalry with chariots. Notice the command is that the king not use the people of Israel to aid him in multiplying horses from or like Egypt. As it pertains to episode #4 and Joseph being told by an angel of Yehovah to go to Egypt, the context is entirely different and Deut. 17:16 in no way applies. Joseph is being sent there to hideout for a while, not deal in horses. Yehovah did not violate His Law.

    Cherubs inside (Exodus 25: 17-22) the tabernacle artwork are not in violation of Exodus 20:4,5. The priests themselves were not bowing before the artistic representations to serve/worship them.
    Exo 20:4,5 – Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God,…

    Lastly, it was mentioned that Yehovah violated His Law in telling Moses to engrave a serpent (Num. 21:4-9) on a pole for the people to look at if bitten by fiery serpents sent by Yehovah. It seems to me that the looking upon/considering the figurine of judgement about the very thing biting and killing the people for thier horrible complaining is very much a display of a way of escape for those that would confess and repent–hardly a violation by God of His Law. God, nor Moses, told the people to worship the image; rather, the object lesson served its purpose.

    In reading the whole Bible for the time that I have, it is evident to me that YeHoVaH does not contradict or violate His own Law. Any passage thought to demonstrate such a claim (e.g., Ez. 4:12; Acts 10:9-16) are evidence of those who recognize a test…and pass [Exo 20:20; 1Th 5:21] unlike those in Genesis 2:15-17; ch3.

    As Hebrew Gospel Pearls continues, I hope the searching for pearls won’t miss the obvious…to me anyway.

  • Hello Keith and Nehemia.
    I would like to say this is my kind of “meat” as the scriptures call it.
    I was wondering if there are. pdfs available of Hebrew Gospel Pearls? Reading helps me process what I trying to understand.

  • Pre – incarnate Christ

    Spot on Nehemia! Well spotted 🙂

    In my understanding, Yehovah can use anyone to be a messenger! …

    In fact in Heb 1:2 he has in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he has appointed heir of all things …

    If Yehovah has spoken ‘in these last days’ by his Son, then he had spoken through different means in the ‘past’ ! …

    That is the reason, it is so important, that it is understood that ‘Yehovah’ has had a hand in the message in Mt 2:13

    And when they were departed, behold, the angel of (the Lord) Yehovah appears to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be you there until I bring you word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

    Yehovah had protected his Son ‘personally’ !

    When the time was appropriate he had called him back out of Egypt, just like he did with Moses and the children of Israel !

    Why?

    Because famine caused a place of refuge for them in the time of Joseph! Joseph had been sold by his brothers, but Yehovah had compassion on them and saved them from starvation!

    Again Yehovah has compassion, and through his only begotten Son, he is about to rescue the world from famine of the true Word of Yehovah! For Yeshua had never done away with the words of his Father, but had done everything in his power to establish his Father’s words …

    All will be re- established when he returns! For he has done away with the works of the devil! … He is the first-born son of Israel! Unique in all ways! …

  • Thankyou – another great session. Heading over to Nehemia’s now. 🙂 Bless
