Shabbat Shalom - Parasha Devarim - Being Prepared for Change !!!

Tisha B’Av: The Temple and the Remedy for Baseless Hatred
Tisha B’Av is the saddest day on the Jewish calendar, and ends three weeks of national
mourning for the destruction of the Holy Temples in Jerusalem and other national tragedies. 

#ShabbatShalom - Welcome to this week's Parasha (Torah Study), which is called Devarim (Words).  This portion of Scripture will be read during the morning services this Shabbat (Saturday) in synagogues all around the world. We know you will be blessed! 

This Shabbat precedes Tisha B'Av, which begins Saturday night.  It is called Black Sabbath because it is considered the saddest Shabbat of the year. It is also called Shabbat Chazon (Sabbath of Vision), which is taken from the special Haftarah (prophetic portion) that is read prior to Tisha B'Av, in which Isaiah laments the sin that will cause the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple. 

Last week, the readings in the Book of Bamidbar (Numbers) concluded with the double Torah portion of Matot–Masei. This week, we begin the Book of Devarim (Deuteronomy), with the Torah portion that is also called Devarim.  In this portion, Moses retells the wilderness saga and reviews with all the people everything that Adonai had ordered them. He begins with God’s directive at Horeb to get moving and take the Promised Land, which extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the Euphrates River, including the lands of Ammon, Moab, and Edom.

Tisha b'Av: People Get Ready! (0:54) The Temple Institute 
"It will happen in the end of days: The mountain of the Temple of HaShem will be firmly established as the head of the mountains, and it will be exalted above the hills, and the nations will stream to it." Isaiah 2:2 The vision of the rebuilt Holy Temple in Jerusalem is the hope of all mankind and unites the family of man. People get ready! It is time to rebuild and transform mourning into preparation for the glory of the future. 

Weekly Torah Portion: Devarim 
Destruction is the root of building. All new growth is nourished by the victories and defeats of the past, the previous generations. This is why Moshe begins the book of Deuteronomy with a veiled rebuke of the previous generation, and this is why it is up to our generation to rebuild the Holy Temple in Jerusalem on the foundations of the Holy Temple destroyed 2000 years ago.

Hillel Richman: The True Location of the Temple Mount: Fully Illustrated (53:52) The Temple Institute 1/8/19 
Archaeologist Hillel Richman, Senior Researcher and Past Supervisor, Ancient Jerusalem Sifting Project and Temple Mount Sifting Project, refutes the spurious theories claiming that the Temple Mount was in any other place other than Mount Moriah, with an emphasis on the 'City of David' theory, while providing incontrovertible historical and archaeological proof that the Holy Temple was, and will be, located on what is today referred to as the Temple Mount. Hillel's talk is accompanied by more than 100 photos, illustrations and charts. This teaching was recorded on 11/11, 2018, in Lubbock, Texas.

Martin who claim that Solomon and Herod's Temples never stood on the Haram al Sharif, also known as the Temple Mount. If they are right, then there is nothing to stop the Jewish people building their long awaited for Third Jewish Temple in the actual site where the Temples once stood.

The Israeli Gun Culture and Approach to Preventing Mass Shootings
by Alex Traiman 
Israel, too, has seen its share of gun violence in the past several decades in the form of nationalistic terrorism. The perpetrators of this terrorism are almost exclusively Palestinians who have been regularly incited—in the more classic forms of incitement—by textbooks, television, social media and speeches by political and religious leaders that glorify and call for the murder of Jews. Much of this incitement is well-documented by organizations, including Palestinian Media Watch and Middle East Media Research Institute.

And while many Israelis have weapons, they are not available to everyone and anyone. To receive a gun license, one must meet several criteria. First, an individual must live or work in a geographic area deemed to pose a higher terror risk, such as Israeli citizens living in the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) or near to Arab villages with a history of producing terrorists. Next, a family doctor who has been treating an individual for many years must complete a detailed health evaluation certifying that the applicant is both physically capable and mentally stable enough to carry a weapon. An applicant also needs to complete a shooting course with a certified instructor and demonstrate sufficient mastery (it’s not too difficult) of handling and shooting a weapon. Before a license is granted, a detailed security check is performed on applicants by Israeli authorities. Once granted, a license then permits an individual to own and carry a single handgun, and the specific weapon purchased by the gunowner is embedded in the license. 

Rabbi: Viral Video of Foxes on Temple Mount a Timely Sign More Prophecies About to be Revealed 
by Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz 

The sighting comes during the nine-day period of austerity culminating in the Ninth of Av when Jews read the Book of Lamentations which includes a verse about foxes on the Temple Mount. The article, the most-read Breaking Israel News article of the year, reports that visitors to the area of the Temple Mount observed a group of about a dozen foxes in the southwestern area of the Western Wall for the last three days in the early hours of the day. The image of foxes on the Temple Mount was described in the Book of Lamentations, which some Biblical scholars believe was written by the Prophet Jeremiah.

Todah Rabah - beloved Ted Belman writing from Jerusalem, Israel for 17+ years ...  

The Saudi-Palestinian labyrinth 
by Ambassador (ret.) Yoram Ettinger 

The pro-Palestinian Saudi talk has diminished, increasingly replaced by an adversarial Saudi walk.
The shift in the Saudi attitude has been reflected by a reduction of foreign aid to the Palestinian Arabs, partially due to the rift between the PA and Hamas, and in protest of PA corruption; a tighter control of monetary transfers by Palestinians residing in the kingdom; and the increase in the number of Palestinians arrested in – and denied access to – Saudi Arabia. The transformation of the Saudi attitude toward the Palestinians has been triggered by Palestinian ties with entities which challenge and threaten the House of Saud. 

Report: Terrorists Behind Jerusalem Pizza Bombing Received More than $910K 
by  JNS News Service

The terrorists behind the suicide-bombing at a Sbarro pizzeria 11 years ago have received $910,823 from the Palestinian Authority, according to a Palestinian Media Watch report released on Thursday. The bombing killed 15 people, including two Americans, and injured around 130 others. The family of the suicide-bomber behind the Aug. 9, 2011, attack, Izz Al-Din Al-Masri, has been one of the recipients of P.A. rewards. According to the report, Al-Masri’s family has received $53,689 overall, while the bombmaker Abdullah Barghouti has collected $213,848. Ahlam Tamimi, who planned the attack, has shown no remorse, saying she has “no regrets.”

Your Summer Shabbat Menu Is Here 
This week’s parsha Devarim brings us to the beginning of the final book of the Torah. It is a long farewell by Moses to the Jewish people as the Children of Israel prepare to enter the Holy Land without him. Lest the people forget their history, Moses reminds the Jewish people who have been wandering for nearly 40 years of where they came from and where they are going. For us, we celebrate this Shabbat with a meal to fill us with the strength and energy to handle whatever comes next – whether conquering a new land or a new week of challenges and triumphs (and a fast).

These are the words [devarim] which Moses spoke to all Israel on this side of the Jordan in the wilderness. 
Deuteronomy 1:1 

Shabbat Shalom - Parasha Devarim - Being Prepared for Change !!!

Welcome to this week's Parasha (Torah Study), which is called Devarim (Words).  This portion of Scripture will be read during the morning services this Shabbat (Saturday) in synagogues all around the world.
Shabbat Shalom
This Shabbat precedes Tisha B'Av, which begins Saturday night.  It is called Black Sabbath because it is considered the saddest Shabbat of the year.
It is also called Shabbat Chazon (Sabbath of Vision), which is taken from the special Haftarah (prophetic portion) that is read prior to Tisha B'Av, in which Isaiah laments the sin that will cause the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple.

Destruction of Jerusalem, by Johann Georg Trautmann
Devarim (Words)
Deuteronomy 1:1–3:22; Isaiah 1:1–27; Mark 14:12–26
“These are the words [devarim] which Moses spoke to all Israel on this side of the Jordan in the wilderness.”  (Deuteronomy 1:1)
Last week, the readings in the Book of Bamidbar (Numbers) concluded with the double Torah portion of Matot–Masei.
This week, we begin the Book of Devarim (Deuteronomy), with the Torah portion that is also called Devarim.  In this portion, Moses retells the wilderness saga and reviews with all the people everything that Adonai had ordered them.
He begins with God’s directive at Horeb to get moving and take the Promised Land, which extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the Euphrates River, including the lands of Ammon, Moab, and Edom.
It is possible that the people were quite content not to move forward once they had received the Ten Commandments at Horeb (another name for Mount Sinai).  They were no longer under bondage, and the easiest thing to do would be to stay there.
Change can be difficult.  It takes effort to cope with a new situation.  But life is a journey.  We are not meant to stand still and stagnate.  We are meant to move forward.

He Led Them by a Pillar of Cloud (Providence
Lithograph Company Bible card published between
1896 and 1913)
Facing the Consequences of Sin 
"Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority, because they keep watch over you as those who must give an account.  Do this so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no benefit to you."  (Hebrews 13:17)
In this Parasha, Moses reminds the new generation that before the Israelites left Horeb, he had to create a system of leaders in charge of thousands, hundreds, fifties, and tens because their quarrelsome nature has been such a heavy burden.
These leaders were commissioned to judge cases and disputes fairly, showing no favoritism.
After this, they moved on.  When they reached Kadesh-Barnea, Moses told them:  “Look, Adonai your God has placed the land before you.  Go up, take possession, as Adonai, the God of your ancestors, has told you.  Don’t be afraid, don’t be dismayed.”  (Deuteronomy 1:21)
But the idea of representative leadership seems to have taken hold, and the people approached Moses asking that scouts go ahead of them to find the best way into the Land.  Moses appointed one man from every tribe.
Each representative came back saying that the Land was bountiful; however, 10 scouts said the inhabitants were bigger and stronger than the Israelites.  The implication was that God was not big or strong or faithful or real enough to defeat them.  The Israelites chose to believe the faithless majority, instead of the two faith-filled spies.
Believing the majority report was contrary to everything that they had witnessed and experienced.  God had moved powerfully and miraculously on their behalf both in Egypt and in the desert.
Not only that, He had proven Himself by going ahead of them and charting the way they should go.  They only had to follow.  There was no reason to think that God would bring them to the edge of the Promised Land only to desert them and leave them to their own devices.

Open Torah scroll
In this Parasha, Moses reminds the new generation of the devastating consequences for their parents' lack of faith: the entire generation died in the desert, as would he.
Moses also reminds them that when their parents knew they had sinned by listening to the 10 spies, and understood the consequences of their sin, they tried to "make it right" by fighting the enemy in their own strength.
Subsequently, they suffered a terrible defeat.
Moses seems to be teaching that the majority doesn’t always know what is best, and sometimes following the majority can have unforeseen, tragic consequences.  It is far too easy to get pulled along by the crowd.
We also understand that although God forgives us when we repent for not following Him, we cannot escape the consequences of our actions.
God will not desert us, but there will be changes that we have to live with and accept.

(Wailing) Wall in Jerusalem.
Moses Prepares the Nation for Change 
In Parasha Devarim, we see that Moses is giving his parting words.  In less than 40 days, he will die.
Moses will not be crossing the Jordan with the Israelites.  So, he takes this opportunity to point the people toward the Lord and impress on this new generation the importance of heeding His instructions.
As they move forward, he wants them to be aware of their tendency to get into trouble, but self-examination will help them bear fruit.
He also wants them to remember that their strength is in the Lord Himself.  It is YHVH whom they will follow as they cross the Jordan to take the Land.
In that Land, they will experience a drastic lifestyle change.  They will no longer journey through the wilderness under His leadership, but will live in an abundant land under Joshua’s leadership.
He wants the people to internalize the message that despite their disobedience and grumblings, God had carried them throughout their 40-year journey through the wilderness the way a father carries his children.
“The LORD your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as He did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes, and in the wilderness.  There you saw how the LORD your God carried you, as a father carries His son, all the way you went until you reached this place." 
(Deuteronomy 1:30–31) 
Although they will experience a change that will require great effort on their part, Adonai will be with them.
Likewise, when Adonai ordains a season of change for us, we can trust Him and confidently move forward.
Isaiah Chastises the People
This week’s Haftarah (Prophetic) reading is the last in a series of three Haftarot of Affliction, which are read during the Three Weeks of mourning between 17 Tammuz and 9 Av.
In this Haftarah, Isaiah chastises the people for their rebellion against Adonai.  Despite having been repeatedly reprimanded and punished while in the Promised Land, they have continued on with their sinful ways.  Isaiah even calls their leaders “rulers of Sodom.”
In fact, the people have become so sinful that God no longer delights in their sacrifices and holy day observances.  There is no problem with the actual sacrifices or observances, however.  God ordained them.
The problem is a people whose hearts are far from Him and are just going through the motions as though that is what makes them holy.
God actually requires us to bring our sacrifices and offerings to Him in holiness, with a heart that seeks Him first, so He expresses His displeasure:
“Stop bringing meaningless offerings!  Your incense is detestable to Me.  New Moons, Sabbaths and convocations — I cannot bear your worthless assemblies." (Isaiah 1:13)
In this portion, we learn that while they are going through the motions of required observances, their hearts follow after pagan practices and idolatry.
Coupled with this hypocritical admixture of the law of Moses and the ways of the world are selfishness, cruelty, and the perversion of justice.  Isaiah calls them “partners with thieves; they all love bribes and chase after gifts.  They do not defend the cause of the fatherless; the widow’s case does not come before them.”  (Isaiah 1:23)
While these sins, if not repented for, will result in the destruction of the Temple, God does not leave Israel only with words of reprimand: He encourages the people to repent and turn to Him by performing just acts and showing kindness to the widows, orphans, and the needy.

The Lord Prepares the People for Redemption
This Haftarah portion contains a very precious promise that points to our redemption in the Messiah:
“‘Come now, let us settle the matter,’ says the LORD.  ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.’”  (Isaiah 1:18)
This precious promise of renewed intimacy finds its ultimate fulfillment in Yeshua (Jesus) and the Brit Chadashah (New Covenant) that He ratified with His own blood.
“It was the LORD’s will to crush Him and cause Him to suffer, and though the LORD makes His life an offering for sin.”  (Isaiah 53:10)
At that time, a cleansed people would wholeheartedly follow the Lord, and their hearts and minds would be supernaturally filled with the knowledge of God.
“‘After that time,’ declares the LORD.  ‘I will put My law in their minds and write it on their hearts.  I will be their God, and they will be My people.  No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, ‘Know the LORD,’ because they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest,” declares the LORD.  ‘For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.’”  (Jeremiah 31:33–34)

A model of the Second Temple as Yeshua might have seen it.
On Shabbat Chazon, as we prepare for Tisha B'Av, we remember that the First Temple was destroyed on Tisha B'Av because of idolatry and wickedness, and the Second Temple was destroyed because of baseless hatred among Jews (and especially, perhaps, of Yeshua).
But that is not the end of the story.  Yeshua will return to Israel when another Temple is built and there is a national turning to Him, as the Prophet Zechariah foretells.
"And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication.  They will look on Me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for Him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for Him as one grieves for a firstborn son."  (Zechariah 12:10)
Oh how we look forward to this wonderful day of grace and changed hearts!
These Last Days are a season of change. 
God is moving among His people to physically and spiritually restore them.  You can be part of this end-time move of God by contributing to our work among the Jewish People.
"Hear the word of the LORD, you nations; proclaim it in distant coastlands:  'He who scattered Israel will gather them and will watch over His flock like a shepherd."  (Jeremiah 31:10)
"You will again have compassion on us; You will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea."  (Micah 7:19)
Shabbat Shalom from the Entire Bibles For Israel Family !
