A look at Jeremiah 46:13-28 and John 19:31-37

JEREMIAH 46:13-28

Many years later, after the fall of Egypt at Passover, disaster strikes, this time, YHVH uses Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon as an instrument of destruction against Egypt. Nebuchadnezzar invaded and conquered Egypt in the year 605 B.C.E and was ruled by Babylon for 43 years.

Also, the Prophet Ezekiel foresees the exile of the nation of Egypt for 40 years (probably during the Millennium). God will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, but bring them back again after. (Ezekiel 29) Just as Israel was in the desert for 40 years, Egypt will also "wander" for the same time.

It seems like Egypt was not humbled after the Passover experience. You would think that the pharaohs that rose to power after the time of Passover would have realized the author of Egypt's destruction, but seems like they did not, a hard heart is hard to break at times.

There are people today that have hardened hearts, that still resist the will of YHVH, to become sons of God, servants of Yeshua, and talmidim. At times, God will humble us through accidents, illnesses, etc.. don't wait for that to happen, HUMBLE THY SELF IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD! He loves you and wants you as his own!

God loves the Egyptian people also. Today in Egypt there are born-again believers and the Coptic church is alive and well. Just like Israel was chastised, so Egypt will also be chastised. We must remember however that Egypt was home to our Messiah Yeshua during his younger years. As Hosea 11:1 states; "Out of Egypt I called my son!"

We can look at that in two ways. Israel was like "Adonai's son" who was called out of Egypt by Moses and brought to the promised land 40 years later. Yet also YESHUA is the "Son of God" (HaBen Elohim) who was "called out of Egypt" when the time was right to begin his ministry.

MAT 25:1-46; JOHN 19:31-37

”The Ten Talents” A “talent” was a “weight” of money thousands of years ago. It was a lot, one could have a “talent” of gold, or silver, or copper, brass, bronze, etc. And like money today, it could be invested, or wisely spent,

We also use the word “talent” as something that we have, like an “ability” to do good. As believers, we all have “talents” or “abilities” given to us through the Ruach HaKodesh (The Holy Spirit), with which to serve our LORD and Savior on earth. But, like the evil servant in the parable, who did nothing with his talent, only buried it, there are believers today who are doing the same. Many have more than one talent, or “spiritual gift” and they are not using it (or them). They are going to waste, or are squandering them in “things of the world.

Can you sing? Yes, are you singing for God? Can you write? Are you writing for God? Can you teach? Are you teaching God's word to others? Can you play an instrument? Are you playing for the LORD? Think about the talents you have. How are you using them?

John 19:31-37 talks about the Eve of Pesach, since part of this Parasha is all about Passover, it is fitting that these verses be read. The bodies of the two criminals and of Yeshua were to be taken down from the crosses where they were crucified. The scripture says “cursed is he who hangs on a tree, (from Deuteronomy 21:22,23)

Yeshua already carried our “curse” and that of the two thieves. All was accomplished during that special Passover. It also states that a Roman soldier pierced the side of Yeshua with a spear, and out came blood and water which was proof that He was really dead.

Blood and water have special symbolism. The blood symbolizes the wine which we drink during Passover, and during the beginning of each sabbath. Symbolically, we are inviting Yeshua to come inside of us, and continue to be part of our lives.

The water is Yeshua who is the “Living Water” the blood also symbolizes “life” so through His death, we have “Life” and that is “Life Eternal”.

“They shall look upon Him whom they pierced” (vs 37) One day in the future, Yeshua will return in the clouds of Heaven, and “ALL” will see Him coming, “They” means “All” even those very soldiers who pierced Him, with the flagellum and with the spear, will SEE HIM someday soon. And ALL will have to answer for their actions.
