-Please Read this FIRST- On this site we prefer to use the actual Name of our loving Heavenly Father as it was written in the Word, and thus you will note that we will use the Four Letter “Memorial Name” of - YHVH, which is pronounced as YaHVaH or YaHWaH. In addition we will also use our Heavenly Father’s attribute/title, which is Elohim rather than “God,” which sadly is the name of a pagan god. In addition we also love to use the actual and real Name of our beloved Messiah which is - Yahushua or Yahshua in short, for this is our Saviours original Hebrew Name as given to Him at birth in Lukas - Luke 1:31. This was the only Name ever used when He was on the earth by His family, disciples and His followers OVER THE centuries, even until today! However, it was changed to a foreign name by the founder of the new “pagan church of Rome.” Occasionally, we may also use other Hebrew or Greek names as well as different words in our studies for certain common words used are from pagan backgrounds and thus are not suitable. All names will be translated when they are FIRST used in a study or at various times as needed for clarity. There is a full explanation of YHVH’s blessed “Memorial Name” as well as the wonderful blessed Name of our Messiah and Saviour, thus please read …The Memorial Name.”

 

Shemos - Exodus Chapter Two

Prologue … “The Preparation of Moshe”

Introduction

In the first study of the Shemos - Exodus series we looked at the Word of YaHVaH Elohim (The LORD Elohim), blessed be His Sanctified Name, on three levels. 1. The Human level: 2. The Divine level: and 3. And the Believer’s or Spiritual level, where we ask the question; “What does this say to the faithful in Messiah Yahushua?

In this second study of the Book of Shemos - Exodus, we will once again look closely at the human side of Moshe’s – Moses’ story, including the three stages of his preparation to becoming “the man of Elohim” 1. Among the Egyptians: 2. Among the Israelites: and 3. Finally among the Midianites.

Let us commence by reading Shemos – Exodus chapter 2.

Shemos - Exodus 2: 1-25; The 7 scenes in Moshe’s Life!

1… His birth and miracle in the Nile.

“1 Now a man of the house of Levi married a Levite woman, 2 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. 3 But when she could hide him no longer, she got a papyrus basket for him and coated it with tar and pitch. Then she placed the child in it and put it among the reeds along the bank of the Nile. 4 His sister stood at a distance to see what would happen to him.

2… the babe is found and give to Yochabed to nurse and raise.

5 Then Pharaoh’s daughter went down to the Nile to bathe, and her attendants were walking along the river bank. She saw the basket among the reeds and sent her slave girl to get it. 6 She opened it and saw the baby. He was crying, and she felt sorry for him. ‘This is one of the Hebrew babies,’ she said. 7 Then his sister asked Pharaoh’s daughter, ‘Shall I go and get one of the Hebrew women to nurse the baby for you?’ 8 ‘Yes, go,’ she answered. And the girl went and got the baby’s mother. 9 Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, ‘Take this baby and nurse him for me, and I will pay you.’ So the woman took the baby and nursed him.

3… The babe is named Moshe – Moses.

10 When the child grew, she took him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son. She named him Moshe - Moses, saying, ‘I drew him out of the water.’

4… Moshe tries to help his people.

11 One day, after Moshe had grown up, he went out to where his own people were and watched them at their hard labour. He saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his own people. 12 Glancing this way and that and seeing no one, he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand. 13 The next day he went out and saw two Hebrews fighting. He asked the one in the wrong, ‘Why are you hitting your fellow Hebrew?’ 14 The man said, ‘Who made you ruler and judge over us? Are you thinking of killing me as you killed the Egyptian?’ Then Moshe was afraid and thought, ‘What I did must have become known.’

5… Fear, his travel, and his meeting with the priest of Midian.

15 When Pharaoh heard of this, he tried to kill Moshe, but Moshe fled from Pharaoh and went to live in Midian, where he sat down by a well. 16 Now a priest of Midian had seven daughters, and they came to draw water and fill the troughs to water their father’s flock. 17 Some shepherds came along and drove them away, but Moshe got up and came to their rescue and watered their flock. 18 When the girls returned to Reuel their father, he asked them, ‘Why have you returned so early today?’ 19 They answered, ‘An Egyptian rescued us from the shepherds. He even drew water for us and watered the flock.’ 20 ‘And where is he?’ he asked his daughters. ‘Why did you leave him? Invite him to have something to eat.’

6… Moshe marries Zipporah and has two sons.

21 Moshe agreed to stay with the man, who gave his daughter Zipporah to Moshe in marriage. 22 Zipporah gave birth to a son, and Moshe named him Gershom, saying, ‘I have become an alien in a foreign land.’

7… Changes in Egypt, Israel cries out, this would change Moshe’s life!

23 During that long period, the king of Egypt died. The Israelites groaned in their slavery and cried out, and their cry for help because of their slavery went up to Elohim. 24 Elohim heard their groaning and he remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac and with Jacob. 25 So Elohim looked on the Israelites and was concerned about them.”

Level 1 – The Human Level

The early periods that Israel was in Egypt the great pharaoh’s of Egypt who knew and remembered Yoseph - Joseph had by now died and slowly that famed story about Yoseph - Joseph had long been forgotten. With Israel having grown into large numbers they were been enslaved and the Israelites “groaned in their agony and cried out in their pain and misery, and YaHVaH Elohim”, blessed be He His Sanctified Name, “heard them” and He remembered His covenant with Avraham - Abraham, Yitzhak - Isaac and Ya’akov - Jacob. Thus Elohim looked upon the Children of Israel and was concerned for them and He was going to do something about the situation!

We also read in the Word that a baby boy was born to one of the faithful Levite families of Israel, a family that would later become the family of the Priests unto Elohim.

However, as we ponder about all of these events let us briefly return to Chapter One, for there something quite remarkable occurred there and I did not as yet cover it in that Study.

I would like to pose a rather strange question here. “Is it permissible for one in faith, a person in YaHVaH Elohim and Messiah Yahushua to tell an untruth?

Obviously most of us will say “no never.” However, in my book “Dutch Tzedakah” I wrote about a number of beautiful and loving faithful believers who did tell many untruths, for they hid many Jews and others from the ever-searching eyes of the evil murdering Nazis!

The now well known ten Boom family saved Jews from the Holocaust and their horrid death camps and whenever a Nazi came to their door and asked Corrie ten Boom, “Are there any Juden in your house?” She said “no.” Obviously, we know that this was an untruth for there were Jews inside the “Hiding Place upstairs in the back of Corrie’s very own wardrobe, behind a secret wall.

The ten Boom’s work of saving Jews came under an Organisation known as the LO – “Landelijke (Countrywide) Organisation”, which was led by a most faithful woman Tante Reik, which was her code name, her actual name was Mrs. Helena Theodora Kuipers who lived in Winterswijk Holland that was quite close to the German border. This saint together with her dear husband and help from a faithful man a pastor saved, through her Elohim inspired organisation, around 10,000 Dutch, German, and other Jewish men, women and children as well as another 300,000 non-Jews, being Dutch citizens fighting the Nazis as well as British and American airmen and soldiers.

Beloved, they all lied to the enemy! Please read my Book online “Dutch Tzedakah” Chapter 11 – “Hunted Like a Deer” at: www.dutchtzedakah.com and you will be amazed by this lady’s enormous faith and I know that it will be a life changing experience!

Now, I must come to a matter that is shown to us very clearly, for we should recall that in Shemos - Exodus chapter One verses 15 to 21 we read about the midwives who very clearly lied to Pharaoh! What did our Heavenly Father do? Did He punish them? NO, He - blessed them!

“The king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, whose names were Shiphrah and Puah, “When you help the Hebrew women in childbirth and observe them on the delivery stool, if it is a boy, kill him; but if it is a girl, let her live.” The midwives, however, feared Elohim and did not do what the king of Egypt had told them to do; they let the boys live. Then the king of Egypt summoned the midwives and asked them, “Why have you done this? Why have you let the boys live?” The midwives answered Pharaoh, “Hebrew women are not like Egyptian women; they are vigorous and give birth before the midwives arrive.” So Elohim was kind to the midwives and the people increased and became even more numerous. And because the midwives feared Elohim, He gave them families of their own.” Shemos - Exodus 1:15-21.

As the Word describes in this situation, under certain unusual circumstances, we can tell an untruth and yet be right with Elohim! Now please note: I am certainly not encouraging believers to tell lies, certainly not, Elohim forbid, but on certain occasions some circumstances arises when the Almighty may allow us to mislead the enemy in order to do that which is in Elohim’s plan and purpose! But, we MUST NEVER LIE for any other reason, no matter what!

Shemos - Exodus Chapter 2, verse 2 tells us that Yochebed hid the baby for 3 months. It is important to understand that in those days, a baby was kept for three months in the woman’s quarters of the house. As men were forbidden to enter the women’s quarters, no soldier could enter that part of the house and see if a baby was hidden there.

Babies would usually come out into the main room of the home during the day and they would be shared with the family. But, the mother of this little boy who would later be called Moshe, decided to keep him safe in her private quarters for the entire three months. She kept him well hidden, just like Miriam (Mary) herself was “well hidden,” for she was in Nazareth and not in Bethlehem, far from the clutches of HaSatan – the Adversary who had been trying to destroy Israel and the line of David throughout history, as the Word so clearly tells us. Why, destroy he who is from line of Judah and there will be no Messiah, no Saviour!

Just imagine the fear of a mother, as she hears the soldiers marching through the streets searching for Israelite baby boys and if found he would be killed, drowned in the Nile. You can imagine her thoughts, “Oh my baby might cry and he’d be taken and killed?” But, she was a woman who obviously had great faith!

Finally after three months she decided to place her beloved son in the very place where the god of the River Nile took and killed other Hebrew baby boys. She wholly trusted her beloved Elohim with her most precious gift her boy child. What an amazing thing to do. She placed him in the very worst place you could imagine. The truth being, she trusted a far greater power than this false Nile god could possibly have.

She had made a small papyrus cot and placed it in the river with baby safe inside. Even though there was danger all around, she left him alone knowing somehow that he was in the trustworthy hands of the Elohim of her fathers. We all know the rest of the story so well, for it is just like a fairy tale, the son of slaves’ ended up living in the Royal Household of Egypt.

Ironically having been found and adopted by Pharaoh’s daughter she ends up paying the baby’s own mother to nurse him and even raised him until I believe he was ready to go to the palace. We are not told at what precise point of his life this was, but one would assume, this would be not long after the time the boy child would be freely eating solid foods and Pharaoh’s daughter named him Moshe because she had “drawn him from the water,” and the Nile being her god!

All this is an amazing truth and we see it happening again and again in the Word, YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, can organise circumstances if we will only trust Him. Beloved, even the most unlikely people can come to your aid, and yes at times, even the enemy.

With that thought in our mind, I now briefly wish to turn to the great prophet Eliyahu - Elijah, for after he insulted the King and his wife Jezebel, YaHVaH sends Eliyahu to the brook of Cherith which means “Divorce” - but in the Hebrew it actually means a “temporary separation”. There at Cherith the ravens miraculously fed him. Then when the waters finally dry up and YaHVaH tells Eliyahu, “Go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon and dwell there.” I Melech – I Kings 17:9.

Whilst at the brook of Cherith, Eliyahu had to rely on Elohim physically for all his needs. This was about to change as he headed for Zarephath, for there he would have to rely on Elohim mentally.

Zarephath would have been the very last place Eliyahu would have gone to in the natural. Lets face it; Zarephath was not just a city of Sidon, it was also located the very heart of the enemy’s territory. Yet the command was, “Go … and dwell there.” It was there YaHVaH had “commanded a woman to provide” for Eliyahu.

Why would Elohim choose this poor Sidonian woman? Beloved, the merciful Elohim makes provision for His appointed ones, and also for this woman who was about to be blessed by Eliyahu’s presence!

At this point, we should realise that six major difficulties arose for the prophet Eliyahu at this command. And we need to remember the days and environment were very different to the days we live in.

He would have to accept hospitality & charity - In those days, for a man to request help was to disgrace himself.

He would have to depend on a woman - Eliyahu would have been raised with the idea that men must be the dependable providers.

Eliyahu would have to live with a widow - How could a prophet and a man of YHVH Elohim go and live in a widow’s house? The people would talk?

He would have to go and ask help from a pauper - This would be difficult as his upbringing was to always to give to the poor.

Eliyahu was to go to a Gentile, a Sidonian Pagan for help and accommodation - The food and the environment would not be Kosher, thus not scripturally fit.

He went to the centre (Sidon), the very heart of Ba’al worship and the home of Queen Jezebel - Here one single man would be the light of Elohim in all that darkness.

Why did the Almighty send Eliyahu into the very home town of Eliyahu’s ultimate enemy Jezebel? The Almighty knew that the murderous Jezebel would never even think of looking for him there in her own hometown, for why would he go there? Because of Eliyahu’s obedience, the unbelieving woman at the well would later turn to Elohim after her son was resurrected from the dead, after Eliyahu had stretched himself over the dead boy there in the upper room. Both accepted the Elohim of Israel, and more than that, did you realise that this was the very first resurrection of the dead in the Word of Elohim? What a mighty faith Eliyahu had! But the point I am showing you is this, that YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, can use those who are from the enemy, but in this case, she and her son came into faith, blessed be His Name!

Our Elohim has a master plan and He never fails! And so it was for Moshe. Elohim allowed him to be placed where the enemy would not look for Hebrew baby boys, in the river Nile, and then in Pharaoh’s very own Palace. This is Elohim’s manipulation of History for His purposes. YaHVaH wanted to preserve this very special boy, for Moshe had already been chosen from the womb to do a special work.

As we know that Moshe for the first stage of his life was raised very much like a prince in the splendour of a grand palace under the care of the pharaoh’s daughter. But towards the end of stage one there would be an experience that was going to change his life as well as the history of all mankind.

Although Moshe would had seen the Hebrew slaves over the many years, but he had not been to physically visit the Children of Israel until he was around 40 years of age. Either, someone told him what had originally happened or he may have had some slight amount of memory, but we have no details, for nothing is written regarding his time in the palace.

Thus now we see Moshe venturing out amongst his own people Israel. From this we can gather until this time he had never in reality ventured out amongst them and being raised thoroughly in Egyptian customs and manners and thus the first time he must have met these Hebrews they would have been like foreign people to him, but as indicated earlier, in due course he came to know that he had come out from them. Whilst he was amongst them he saw one of them being ill-treated by an Egyptian and Moshe attacked and killed the Egyptian offender. Thinking that nobody had seen him he buried the body in the sand and quickly returned to the palace.

There is no doubt that this was the wrong moment for Moshe to start helping his people as it was obviously the wrong way to go about it, killing an Egyptian. The point is; this act was done FOR them rather than WITH them. However, apparently he had been seen by someone and obviously in due course Pharaoh would hear about it!

We must also realise, that the Hebrews at this point would not accept Moshe as one of their own, let alone remotely imagined him to become their future leader. For when he tried to stop several Hebrews quarrelling the very next day, they said,

“‘Who made you a prince and a judge over us? Do you intend to kill me as you killed the Egyptian?’ So Moshe feared and said, ‘Surely this thing is known!’ When Pharaoh heard of this matter, he sought to kill Moshe. But Moshe fled from the face of Pharaoh.” Shemos - Exodus 2:14-15.

They certainly did not realise that YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, was using all these events to prepare Moshe to deal with Pharaoh some 40 years later. Israel certainly was not ready to accept Moshe as a leader at this point of time.

We now come to the second stage of his life as Moshe quickly departed Egypt because he knew that Pharaoh would have had him killed. The only place he could go was towards the Sinai and he headed in a direction that he believed that he had decided on. But obviously it was known for it was the Elohim of Avraham – Abraham, Yitzchak - Isaac and Ya’akov - Jacob who took charge of his journey for Elohim foreknew all things and had set Moshe’s future in motion as well as certain people that he would meet for they were ready, even though neither Moshe or they had any idea what was about to happen, yet they were all at the right place and at the right time!

Thus this is where Moshe meets a desert family and marries one of the daughters of the Midianites. Now we see Moshe in the heart of the Sinai desert wandering around as a simple shepherd! Now in the dessert we see a mighty prince who had the very best in the world, but he had became a lowly shepherd in a far away desert and instead of living in a grand palatial palace, he lived in a lowly tent having to work very hard for his daily crust!

Did you realise that YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, can do more with a man who is alone in the heart of a desert, rather than a prince who is surrounded by countless people and luxury. Elohim was preparing His servant Moshe for the many massive tasks that lay ahead of him.

However, I feel in a way that it was rather sad that Moshe married Zipporah and we shall come to see that this was because in truth he married a woman without faith, for later Moshe would have many disputes with her. The first was over the Hebraic upbringing of their children. She even called him “A bloody husband” because of his faith. This is a standard warning for men and women … NEVER get married outside of the faith. It is a grave mistake. We are told in the Word, “Be not unequally yoked together.”

Moshe was now far from his familiar surroundings, thinking that he would never see Egypt again, thus he took whatever little comfort he could get. For 40 years Moshe dwelt in this inhospitable desert. Beloved it is most important for us to remember at this point that numbers in the Word of YaHVaH Elohim have special meaning, especially so for the number 40, which is a vital in the Word!

1… Moshe spent the first 40 years as a mighty prince, thinking he was - a somebody.

2… Then he lived the next 40 years as a lowly shepherd, thinking he was - a nobody.

3… During Moshe’s final 40 years he discovered - that the Almighty was able to take a nobody and make him a somebody.

Thus Elohim’s chosen servant, Moshe lived a total of 120 years, 40 as a prince - a somebody. Then 40 years as a shepherd - a nobody and far from his people. In his final 40 years, he found out what Elohim can do with a nobody who was willing to follow his Elohim and thus he led the Children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.

This has been the human level of the story so far.

Level 2 – The Divine Level

Beloved, what is so incredibly amazing is this; that there are those who are chosen for special duties and thus YaHVaH our Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, can work within a man’s life even before he comes to Elohim, for He will prepare that person for what He is going to do with him later!

It is for that reason that Elohim wanted Moshe in the Palace. He wanted him to be able to speak to the Pharaoh on his own level at a later date, thus YHVH gave Moshe all the privileges of a prince living with all the riches of the royal household. However, Elohim, blessed be He, could not use Moshe whilst he was in this high position, thus our Heavenly Father allowed him to be humbled and brought right down and only whilst Moshe was far removed from his own people and Egypt would Elohim eventually speak to him.

The Almighty will only exult those who have been humbled. Remember, all who have come to Messiah Yahushua had to first believe, then in full humility repent and be fully immersed in water, and it was after we repented did we receive the blessing of redemption and the filling of the Sanctified (Holy) Spirit! In the same way YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, brought Moshe - Moses low in order to lift him up again and use him publicly. The good news is beloved, that the Elohim who humbles, also exalts.

Another wonderful blessing was, as we read in the blessed Word is, that Elohim came all the way down to Moshe and called him when he was at the bottom of the mountain and not on the top. In fact the Word says that Moshe was in “the furthermost part of the wilderness.” Whilst he was sitting all alone in the wilderness, he was feeling that his life had nothing in store for him, and then suddenly he heard a voice. And indeed YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, could see that Moshe was ready to be called.

Now the Almighty was able to say, “You are ready to get back to a high position. Now your motivation is not on the human level, but the spiritual level and you are ready to commence working for Me.” (Condensed from what the Word says and thus these are my words in an abbreviated way).

Level 3 – The Believers / Spiritual Level

As we continue we may ask; what does this powerful chapter of Shemos – Exodus say that touches the faithful in Messiah Yahushua?

Well beloved, Moshe is obviously a picture, a type of Yahushua our Master and Saviour. Although Moshe was this only in part. Let us look at this typology …

To proclaim liberty to the captives. Isaiah 61:1

That at the name of Yahushua every knee should bow. Philippians 2:10.

Please Note: I have not added the Hebrew/Greek names of books.

 

This list also contains many contrasts between Moshe and Messiah Yahushua, such as ...

“For the Torah, the Law was given through Moshe. Grace and truth came through Yahushua the Messiah.” Yochanan - John 1:17.

Moshe’s personal Exodus was incomplete for he did not cross into the land of promise due to sin:

“Elohim said to Moshe … “Go up to the top of Pisgah and look west and north and south and east. Look at the land with your own eyes, since you are not going to cross this Jordan.” Davarim - Deuteronomy 3:27.

Moshe - Moses made the following prophecy …

“YHVH Elohim will raise up for you a Prophet like me from among your own brothers. You must listen to Him.” Davarim - Deuteronomy 18:15.

These words written by Moshe were taken by Yahushua unto Himself when He came. Yahushua’s Exodus was complete for He rose to be with the Father for He had “no spot nor blemish” – He was without sin!

“They spoke about his departure (Exodus), which He was about to bring to fulfilment at Jerusalem.” Lukas - Luke 9:31.

Thus, as we study the life of Moshe, we are also seeing Yahushua in so many of the details. We see Moshe raised in a glorious Palace with all the glory of a prince. Then we see him in the wilderness alone as a humble shepherd. But whilst he was a prince he lived in a palace for he was Egyptian royalty, yet later he was all alone in the wilderness, becoming a Good Shepherd, learning how to look after his sheep and then he became Elohim’s chosen man to lead His people out of slavery. Yes, I certainly see much more than just a shepherd when I look at Moshe.

Secondly, I see in the distance the Land of Canaan, the Land of Salvation, the Land of Promise, the Land of Blessing, a land that our Messiah Yahushua wants to bring all the true faithful to – The Kingdom of Elohim!

You see it is not just what we are saved from …

It is what you are Saved to.

 

It is not just getting out of Egypt

It is getting into Canaan, the land of Promise.

 

It is not just getting out of sin …

It is getting into Righteousness.

 

It is not getting out of Evil …

It is getting into Good.

In Conclusion

Beloved, Moshe had this double purpose and that is why I am closing this chapter by saying that the Book of Shemos - Exodus is not just an escape story, but it is an elopement. It is a story of a covenant made between Elohim and His people. YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, said “let My People Go that they may come and serve Me.” In other words ... You are not just being delivered from the clutches of Sin but … You are delivered to be His. That is the story. “Come out of sin and into blessing! Come to Me all you who are heavy laden.”

Shemos - Exodus 2:23-25 states.

“Now it happened in the process of time that the king of Egypt died. Then the children of Israel groaned because of the bondage, and they cried out; and their cry came up to Elohim because of the bondage. So Elohim heard their groaning, and Elohim remembered His covenant with Avraham, with Yitzchak, and with Ya’akov. And Elohim looked upon the children of Yisroel, and Elohim acknowledged them.”

This is the epilogue of our study so far. Although Israel originally had been happy in Egypt and were settled there, there came a point when the Children of Israel cried out in their pain, and their cry was heard by Elohim.

After around 400 years, when they should have been listening to their Elohim and praying unto Him in relation to returning to their own land, Israel, as a nation, except for those who had remained faithful, simply had neglected their Elohim and worse still the majority had followed the ways of Egypt as well as their gods.

Still, their Elohim heard their cry. He did not say “I won’t talk to you,” for He had not spoken to them for all those long years. As there is nothing written from the time of Yoseph - Joseph until the time of Moshe, but YaHVaH our Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, said …

I heard your cry, I have seen your pain, and I remembered My promise which I made with your fathers.”

And therein we discover the greatest blessing of the Almighty, His Everlasting Promise, for Elohim remembers His Word! It does not matter how long it has been, if He made a promise, He will keep it.

Tehillim - Psalm 105 verse 8 also makes this quite clear …

“ZaChar LeOlam BeRito DaVar TziVah LeElev Dor”

"He (YaHVaH Elohim) remembers His covenant forever (LeOlam), the Word which He commanded for a thousand generations"

Beloved, you can always claim a promise of Elohim, because He will keep it no matter how long we may have been away from Him. You can always come back, yes even those who have backslidden, and claim the promise, for Elohim will hear and remember.

Thus Elohim saw and said, the time has come for Me to do something with Moshe and with My people Israel. Which brings us to Chapter 3 and Elohim’s call on Moshe’s life? To be a deliverer and a messenger of He who is the most high! Believe me, the next study is a very powerful one and in it you will learn something amazing about Moshe’s rod!

Yahushua said; “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the Prophets: They will all be taught by Elohim. Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from Him comes to Me. No one has seen the Father except the One who is from Elohim; only He has seen the Father.
