  2. Ibanescu Rodica Alice spune:

    Are dreptate Prager. De fapt ar trebui sa fim rationali, Israelul care e si-asa e inecat intr-o mare araba rezista datorita lui Dumnezeu. Mie mi se pare ca nu despre supravietuire este vorba ci despre planul lui Dumnezeu cu privire la poporul acesta.
    Nici eu nu cred ca arabii vor intelege ratiunea acestui stat pentru ca este vorba despre religia lor si nu despre o strategie politica. Si pana la urma sa ne fie clar , lui Satan nu-i place pamantul acesta al Israelului pentru ca i-a facut probleme. Deci nu ma mira lupta de distrugere si exterminare care i-a lovit mereu pe evrei de-a lungul si de-a latul istoriei.
    Multumim pentru aceste extraordinare informatii, Otniella, care ne ajuta sa vedem limpede adevarul Bibliei si sa intelegem vremurile pe care le traim. Va doresc un An nou inundat de binecuvantari si fagaduinte implinite , special pentru Dvs. Shalom!

  3. Catalina spune:

    Imi place cum gandeste primul analist. E clar acum ! intre cine si Cine se da toata lupta. Dar Dumnezeul nostru e mare si bun . El il va ocroti pe Israel mereu ! Un an bun cu binecuvantari, doamna Otniela !

  4. Sima C. C. spune:

    Shalom. An nou cu de impliniri , va doresc si eu. Multa pace Israelului. Foarte interesante cele doua analize, multumim pentru ele. Am inteles. Lupta este intre Dumnezeul lui Israel si Satana. Dar Dumnezeu isi va duce la o implinire perfecta toate planurile Lui cu privire la Israel si la toti copiii Lui.
    Dumnezeu sa va binecuvinteze , Otniela !

    Shabbat Shalom !

    http://www.messianicbible.com
    Welcome to Shemot (Names), this week’s Parsha (Torah Portion), which will be read in synagogues around the world during this week’s Shabbat (Saturday) service. Please read this Torah Portion along with us and be refreshed by the inspired Word of God!
    SHEMOT (Names)
    Exodus 1:1–6:1; Isaiah 27:6–28:13; 29:22–23; Jeremiah 1:1–2:3; 1 Corinthians 14:18–25

    “These are the names [shemot] of the sons of Israel who went to Egypt with Jacob, each with his family.” (Exodus 1:1)

    Last week, the reading of Bereshit (Genesis), the first of the five books of Moses, concluded with the death of both Jacob and his son, Joseph. This week, we begin studying the second book—Shemot (Names), which is called Exodus in English Bibles.

    This second book of Moses was originally called Sefer Yetziat Mitzrayim (The Book of the Departure from Egypt). It then came to be known as Shemot from its opening phrase, Ve-eleh shemot (and these are the names).

    The English name for Shemot—Exodus (The Departure)—comes from the Greek term ‘exodos’ and is derived from the Septuagint, the ancient Greek translation of the Hebrew Scriptures (300–200 or perhaps 150 BC).

    This book describes the formation of the people of Israel as a nation, their enslavement in Egypt and their deliverance from bondage.

    Israel Becomes a Great People

    “And because the midwives feared God, he gave them families of their own.” (Exodus 1:21)

    Israel had come to Egypt (Mitzrayim) as a temporary measure to avoid the famine in the land of Canaan. Nevertheless, their settling in Egypt eventually led to their enslavement.

    Although, the sons of Israel (Jacob) had come into Egypt as a sum total of 70 people, God blessed them, and they grew into such a multitude that Pharaoh viewed them as a potential threat and therefore, forced them into hard labor.

    In order to suppress their numbers, Pharaoh commanded that all Hebrew baby boys be killed at birth.

    Since the pharaoh of Egypt gave a command that violated God’s commandments, the Hebrew midwives disobeyed the Pharaoh’s command. Because the midwives feared God more than they feared man, God rewarded them. (Exodus 1:17–21)

    When killing all the Jewish boys at birth did not work, the Pharaoh resorted to drowning them.

    „Then Pharaoh gave this order to all his people: ‘Every Hebrew boy that is born you must throw into the Nile, but let every girl live.’” (Exodus 1:22)

    The Case for Godly Disobedience

    While we are commanded to obey those in authority over us, we are not to do so if it means disobeying God’s laws.

    In the past, when the commands of an ungodly and evil government meant disobeying God, many Jewish martyrs chose death over a life of disobedience to God.

    We must never allow loyalty to our government to reign supreme over our loyalty to the King of the Universe.

    We can learn a lesson from Church history.

    During the Holocaust, the allegiance of the silent majority of the Roman Catholic and Protestant Church was to Hitler.
    Rather than confront the Nazis and defend the Jewish People, many Church leaders deliberately chose to avoid conflict with Hitler’s regime. Through many outrageous tacit and overt acts of compliance, the Church was unfaithful to God and treacherous to His Jewish people.

    Among the many unspeakable atrocities that happened to the Jewish People
    under Hitler’s regime, the Jewish people had their possessions taken from
    them; they were starved and forced into hard labor in prison camps; and they
    were rounded up and killed. Great numbers of the Church approved and/ or
    remained silent.

    May the Church never make this same error again under the rule of the coming anti-Messiah. Our primary allegiance must remain with God,though it take courage and standing against a tide of evil.

    “The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid.” (Psalms 27:1)

    God promises to bless those who bless Israel and to curse those who curse her (Genesis 12:3). What the nations do to Israel, God will return upon them likewise.

    If we look at the end of the Egyptian regime that oppressed Israel, God drowned the Egyptian males just as the Egyptians drowned the Jewish baby boys.

    “Israel is My firstborn son, and I told you, ‘Let My son go, so he may worship Me.’ But you refused to let him go; so I will kill your firstborn son.” (Exodus 4:22–23)

    While the consequences of hurting Israel, God’s firstborn, are beyond burdensome, the rewards of blessing Israel are cause for great rejoicing.

    The Faith of one Mother, and the Intervention of God

    “Now a man of the tribe of Levi married a Levite woman, and she became pregnant and gave birth to a son. When she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him for three months.” (Exodus 2:1–2)

    One male infant in Egypt was spared the terrible fate of being drowned in the Nile because of the faith and resourcefulness of his mother, not to mention the supernatural intervention of God.

    When Moshe (Moses) was born, he was hidden by his mother for three months.

    When his mother could no longer hide him, she put him in an ark constructed of bulrushes and set him afloat in the river while his sister watched from a distance. (Exodus 2:3)

    This is the second of only two times that this Hebrew word for ark (tevah) is used in the Tanakh, the first being the ark that Noah built to save himself and his family from the flood. (See Genesis 6:14)

    Pharaoh’s daughter found the baby Moshe (Moses) and had compassion on him, even though she knew he was a Hebrew.

    She called him Moshe because he was drawn (mashach) from the waters. (Exodus 2:10)

    While mashach is not the exact word used in this Scripture, the name Moshe comes from the root of the word for draw or pull, which is mashach.

    Moses’ own Jewish mother was called to nurse him until he grew older. She then turned Moses over to the Pharaoh’s daughter who took him as her own son.

    “When the child grew older, she took him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son.” (Exodus 2:10)

    Moshe: The Development of a Leader

    “One day, after Moses had grown up, he went out to where his own people were and watched them at their hard labor.” (Exodus 2:11)

    God allowed Moses, the future redeemer (go’el) of Israel, to be instilled in his early childhood with the knowledge of God from his Jewish mother, but arranged that he would not grow up amongst his Jewish People, lest he adopt their slave-victim mentality.

    Instead, Moses was raised in an Egyptian palace as royalty. Despite this, he felt compelled to help his brethren and administer justice against the Egyptian oppression of his people.

    When Moses reached manhood, he witnessed an Egyptian striking an Israelite, and he killed the Egyptian.

    Rather than receiving thanks for his help, Moses was taunted and accused for the first, but not the last, time by his own brethren: “Who made you ruler and judge over us?” (Exodus 2:14)

    When Pharaoh heard that Moses had killed an Egyptian, he tried to have him killed, so Moses fled from Egypt into the wilderness in fear for his life.

    Temple of Rameses II: As the Israelites grew in number, the Egyptians
    began to fear them, so they forced them into labor to build Pithom and
    Rameses as supply cities for Pharaoh.

    Preparing Moses to Shepherd Israel

    “Their cry for help because of their slavery went up to God. God heard their groaning, and He remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac and with Jacob. So God looked on the Israelites and was concerned about them.” (Exodus 2:23–25)

    Though Moses felt the call of God on his life in Egypt to deliver his people, he was not ready to fulfill that commission. All his years in Pharaoh’s courts had not prepared him.

    To prepare for what was to come, he first needed to spend 40 years tending flocks in Midyan (Midian).

    There in the wilderness, Moses found favor with Jethro, a Midianite Priest, and married his daughter Zipporah.

    Moses had a son whom he named Gershom, a Hebrew name that comprises the word ‘Ger,’ meaning ‘stranger,’ and ‘Sham,’ meaning ‘there.’

    We understand from this that Moses hadn’t forgotten his people. He felt like a stranger in a strange land. (Exodus 2:21–22)

    Despite the sense of loss and alienation that Moses experienced, God was preparing him to deliver the children of Israel from their bondage in Egypt.

    Responding to the Call

    “Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought, ‘I will go over and see this strange sight of why the bush does not burn up.’” (Exodus 3: 2–3)

    Finally, after 40 years shepherding his father-in-law’s flocks, from the midst of a burning bush, Moses hears the call of God to go back to Egypt to deliver the Israelites from their cruel bondage.

    The lesson we can learn from this is that people of destiny can spend years in a humble position before God calls them to service. God sometimes tests us in small things before exalting us to greater ones. We need to have patience with God’s timing and wait in hopeful expectation.

    Here at the burning bush, the Lord identified Himself to Moses, not as a new or foreign God that Moses did not know, but as the God of his fathers.

    “I am the God of your father, the God of Avraham (Abraham), the God of Yitzhak (Isaac) and the God of Yaacov (Jacob).” (Exodus 3:6)

    God confirmed to Moses that the Israelites are His people and that He had heard their cry for help.

    “And now the cry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have seen the way the Egyptians are oppressing them. So now, go. I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt.” (Exodus 3: 9–10)

    In any sane person’s estimation, delivering Israel from Egypt would take a powerful army. Moses must have been thinking that and had to have been astonished that God was sending just one man—him—to convince Pharaoh to let God’s people go.

    After spending so many years in the wilderness, he had been broken and humbled. His honest reaction was ‘who am I to do this great thing?’

    “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” (Exodus 3:11)

    Many of us also look at our own inadequacy and doubt that God could possibly want to use us.

    What’s the only thing we really need? God’s assurance that He will be with us!

    “And God said, ‘I will be with you.’” (Exodus 3:12)

    He Who Was, and Is, and Is to Come

    “Say to the Israelites, YHVH, the God of your fathers… has sent me to you.” (Exodus 3:15)

    Moses knew that he couldn’t go to the Israelites under his own authority. He had learned this painful lesson 40 years earlier. This time, he had to be sent by divine authority.

    Moses, therefore, asked God for His actual name so he would have an answer if the Israelites tested him to see if he was really acting on God’s behalf (Exodus 3:13-14).

    The Hebrew words that the Lord provided for His name are Ehye Asher Ehye. What is commonly translated in English as I am who I am, or just I Am, actually means I shall be that I shall be. (Exodus 3:14)

    God’s answer reveals the wisdom of Moses’ question. God wants Israel to know Him and is therefore, careful in providing the answer.

    The Tetragrammaton (Four Letters), is considered the sacred and
    proper name of God and therefore, not spoken aloud. When it is
    encountered during the reading of the Torah, Adonai (Lord) is
    substituted. In some Bible translations, it is transliterated as Yehovah
    or Yahweh.

    God also provides another name and instructs Moses to assure the children of Israel that YHVH—from the four Hebrew letters yud, hey, vav, hey which make up God’s sacred name—is sending him. (Exodus 3:15) [In most English Bibles, the word LORD is inserted where YHVH occurs.]

    This name is derived from the Hebrew root word to be.

    By this, God proclaimed His eternal nature: He is the God who was, who is, and who forever will be!

    The angels continually profess this glorious mystery around the throne of God: “Kadosh, kadosh, kadosh (holy holy, holy) is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come.” (Revelation 4:8)

    In calling himself ‘I will be,’ God declared that He is without beginning or end. He is outside of time and can step into our past, present and future to meet the need of the moment.

    The True Nature of God

    Although it may seem at times that God stands far off and hides himself in times of trouble, this is only our faulty, time-bound perception. The truth is that God is faithful to keep His promises to His covenant children in His perfect way and time.

    We can see from this Parsha that God loves freedom and hates injustice, tyranny, oppression and bondage of all kinds.

    He desires to deliver us so that we may live free—free of sin, of guilt, of shame, and of all oppression.

    And in a similar way that He sent one man, Moses, to deliver His people, He sent Yeshua (Jesus) to deliver all who would be His people.

    Yeshua proclaimed His mission of healing and liberation in Nazareth, while visiting the synagogue one Shabbat.

    As He read the Haftarah (prophetic portion), He proclaimed:

    “The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners, and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” (Isaiah 61:1,2; Luke 4:16–19)

    With all our love on the Shabbat – Shabbat Shalom from all of us here at Bibles For Israel.

    „Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (1 Corinthians 9:7)

    Shabat Shalom!

    Am ales pentru astazi pericopa saptamaii comentata de rabinului Sorin Rosen.

    Spor la studiul Torei!

    Pericopa Vaera (Exodul 6.2 – 9.35)

    Pe scurt Dumnezeu ii fagaduieste lui Moshe ca ii va scoate pe evrei din robie, ca ii va face „poporul Sau”, si ii va duce in tara promisa. Moshe este trimis inca o data la Faraon. Se face o enumerare a copiilor celor 12 initiatori de triburi din Israel. Moshe incearca sa „scape” de misiune, insa Dumnezeu ii da asigurari ca lucrurile vor fi rezolvate. Se dau, pe rand, sase din cele zece plagi cu care Dumnezeu a lovit Egiptul: prefacerea apei in sange, broaste, paduchi, muste, moartea vitelor, bube si grindina. Faraon si slujitorii sai refuza sa permita poporului evreu sa mearga in desert pentru a-L sluji pe Dumnezeu timp de trei zile.

    Semne de intrebare

    [MIRACOL SAU MAGIE?]

    De-a lungul secolelor, multi lideri religiosi au considerat drept metoda cea mai potrivita realizarea de miracole. Intr-un comentariu de-al sau, Maimonide (Rambam) – un mare comentator al Torei – afirma ca „atunci cand cineva este dispus sa acorde credit unei religii pentru simplul fapt de existenta a unor minuni (si numai pentru aceasta, alt motiv neexistand), persoana respectiva se afla pe un teritoriu periculos, deoarece exista posibilitatea ca aceste „minuni” sa nu fie altceva decat iuteala de mana si nebagare de seama”.

    Traditia iudaica nu duce lipsa de minuni, insa iudaismul nu este bazat in nici un caz pe acestea. Dumnezeu a vorbit poporului evreu, evenimentul este istoric dovedit, urme de indoiala nu exista.

    Exista totusi o intrebare: cum raspunde iudaismul la minuni care sunt puse in discutie de alte confesiuni, de alte credinte? Un exemplu foarte concret poate fi regasit in pericopa de saptamana aceasta, Vaera. Moshe face minuni cu ajutorul lui Dumnezeu. Si – cel putin la primele minuni din seria de zece – magii Egiptului reusesc sa copieze aceste fenomene. Sa fie magie alba sau neagra? Sa fie iluzionism? Sa fie oare (desi intrebarea poate parea eretica) o alta forta similara cu cea a lui Dumnezeu in Univers?

    Exista opinii nenumarate cu privire la natura acestor fenomene. Pentru conformitate, cele doua „minuni” despre care vorbesc sunt prefacerea apei Nilului in sange si broastele, pe care magii egipteni le-au copiat. Celelalte opt plagi au fost insa peste puterea acestora de duplicare. Maimonide respinge categoric posibilitatea ca actiunile magilor Egiptului ar fi fost minuni. Alte surse au alte pareri. De exemplu, Nachmanide (un alt mare rabin si mistic evreu) este de parere ca egiptenii – cu cultura lor avansata si cunostintele lor in domeniul spiritualului – erau capabili sa manipuleze forte malefice, lucru pe care l-ar fi si facut in povestea de pericopa Vaera.

    Sunt comentatori care invoca drept sursa a „realizarilor” egiptene incantatiile si vrajitoria. Si – in cele din urma – se invoca chiar autosugestia si puterea colectiva de proiectare a unei dorinte in realitatea imediata. Oricum, cred eu, intrebarea „Magie sau miracol?” ramane deschisa… Voi ce parere aveti?

    [DE CE AU FOST PLAGILE SI DE CE FARAON NU A FOST LASAT SA RENUNTE?]
    Una din intrebarile clasice legate de iesirea evreilor din Egipt in general si de pericopa Vaera in special este dreptul la LIBER ARBITRU al lui Faraon. Pe tot parcursul pericopei de saptamana aceasta, Dumnezeu ii spune lui Moshe ca „va intari inima lui Faraon”, pentru ca acesta sa nu ii lase pe evrei sa iasa din Egipt. El va refuza acest lucru cu obstinatie, cu o incapatanare demna de invidie (daca se poate spune asa). Si, ca rezultat al acestei incapatanari si al acestui refuz, lui Faraon ii vor fi „daruite” cele zece plagi, cu urgii progresive ca intensitate dar avand evident scop punitiv, de a-l ingenunchia. Iar intrebarea este urmatoarea: daca Faraon este fortat sa se comporte asa, de ce este mai apoi pedepsit? Nu exista oare acea prevedere judiciara conform careia un om care este silit sa comita o fapta nu poate fi condamnat pentru consecintele acesteia? Nu exista oare o contradictie intre aceste doua idei?

    Comentatorii ofera o explicatie la aceasta „inadvertenta”: De fapt, Faraon nu doreste sa ii lase pe evrei sa plece. Si totusi ele s-au abatut asupra Egiptului pentru ca evreii sa poata pleca, impotriva vointei lui Faraon. Caruia nu i s-a dat nici macar optiunea de a zice: „Ok, bine, ii las sa plece!…” Faraon a trebuit sa suporte toate aceste „pedepse” pana la sfarsit. De ce nu i s-a dat voie sa renunte la incapatanare si sa accepte vointa lui Dumnezeu? Eu voi mentiona doar doua motive:

    In primul rand, plagile au fost o pedeapsa pentru atitudinea lui fata de evrei. Munca grea si injositoare, uciderea pruncilor, toate suferintele la care evreii au fost supusi au pecetluit in ochii lui Dumnezeu o pedeapsa pentru Faraon: acestuia i se va refuza dreptul la „autoguvernare”, la independenta asupra spiritului propriu, dreptul de a lua decizii in ceea ce il priveste. Asa cum Faraon a transformat evreii in sclavi si le-a rapit dreptul la libertate, in acelasi mod i-a fost „rapit” si lui liberul arbitru.

    O alta abordare, total diferita insa nu mai putin credibila, a fost aceea ca lui Faraon i-a fost suprimat dreptul la liberul arbitru pentru ca acesta sa fie liber sa-si exprime dorinta de a se impotrivi lui Dumnezeu. Sa presupunem ca dupa primele trei plagi, de exemplu, Faraon se speria atat de mult incat renunta la „rautatea” si incapatanarea sa. Insemna, in acel moment, ca meritul nu este al sau, ci mai curand ca suferintele l-au determinat sa renunte. Dumnezeu nu accepta tshuva (pocainta) decat atunci cand vine din inima. Autoritatea si justitia umana au insituit pedepse (de exemplu pentru crima sau viol) pentru a descuraja aceste delicte. Si ceea ce se intampla este ca de multe ori persoane de o calitate morala indoielnica nu savarsesc aceste fapte nu din considerente etice sau avand in minte calitatea lor de oameni, ci doar pentru a nu intra sub incidenta unei legi care ii va pedepsi.

    Dumnezeu nu doreste aceasta. Dumnezeu doreste fapte bune izvorate din dorinta noastra de a le face, nu din frica de a face fapte rele. Este o nuanta, nu-i asa?

Iar Mesajele de la Messianic Bible sunt o adevarata Mana…Le multumim fratilor nostri neobositi in Lucrul pentru Slava Celui Vesnic , si ne rugam pentru ei.
      Ii incurajez pe vizitatorii acestui site sa citeasca Pericopele , in ordinea pusa de noi aici , pentru a fi in acelasi tempo cu ceea ce se citeste in Sinagoga.
      Binecuvantari din Sionul lui Adonai ! BeShem Yeshua !

  19. Shavua Tov , Prieteni ! Multumiri pentru participarea la acest topic.
    Va multumesc pentru urari, pentru interesul Dvs constant fata de nevoile urgente ale Israelului.
    Va multumesc , de asemenea , pentru rugaciuni pretioase si pentru incurajare… Dumnezeul lui Israel sa va rasplateasca !
    Va doresc si eu un AN BINECUVANTAT , bogat in viata spirituala si plin de rod in relatia cu Dumnezeul Dvs. EL sa va creasca in fiecare zi dorul dupa Venirea Sa pe care o asteptam cu totii ca pe un dar unic si nemeritat, de mare pret, stiind ca si Domnul nostru Preaiubit abia asteapta sa fie cu noi Acasa. Daca Poporul Lui va fi insufletit de Lucrurile Lui vesnice, lasandu-le in urma pe cele pamantesti si trecatoare, grabirea Venirii Sale va fi iminenta.
    Asadar, MULTI ANI NESFARSITI , cu Mesia ! Maranatha !
