How Long Will You Make Your Mother Cry?
Vayigash and Vayechi 44:18-47:27; 47:28-50:26
The name of the Torah portion is Vayechi, "and he lived." It connects to last week's portion, Vayigash, "and drew near." This week I decided to put one of our online Torah lessons in the place of the written teaching. The lesson is the first half of a teaching entitled
"Who are These?", which explains Jacob's question to Joseph when he blessed Ephraim and Menashe. In fact, the blessing upon the male children is taken from this week's Torah portion.
The Father is building Jerusalem quickly, even in our days, so when will we return to comfort Rachel, who is weeping for her missing children? If you knew your earthly mother was weeping until you returned to her, then how fast would you drive home? How many times would Yeshua have gathered us to Jerusalem, but we would not?
Next year in Jerusalem...no, this year in Jerusalem.
If you plan to go with us on the study trip to Israel for Passover, please go ahead and register for the trip at the link below to hold your place. I don't think you'll find a better price at that season. We need to meet our minimum of 20 participants before we start booking our flights, and we need a few more to meet that minimum.

Another way to help...
Want to help The Creation Gospel every time you purchase something on Amazon? Our ministry is part of our local congregation, The Olive Branch, in East Bernstadt, Kentucky. If you reset your amazon home page to
and select The Olive Branch Messianic Congregation Inc. as your charity, Amazon donates a small percentage of each sale. Every penny helps, and our congregation is a great help in meeting special needs at the orphanage and other outreaches.
