Parshat Naso 2016 – Scriptures for Shabbat
Messianic Rabbi David Levine, June 17-18, 2016

Numbers 4:32
You are to assign particular loads to specific persons by name.

Numbers 7:4-9
Adonai said to Moshe, “Receive these [offerings] from them; they are to be used for the service in the tent of meeting. Give them to the L’vi’im, to each as needed for his duties.” So Moshe took the wagons and oxen and gave them to the L’vi’im. He gave two wagons and four oxen to the descendants of Gershon, in keeping with the needs of their duties. Four wagons and eight oxen he gave to the descendants of M’rari, in keeping with the needs of their duties, directed by Itamar the son of Aharon the cohen. But to the descendants of K’hat he gave none, because their duties involved the holy articles, which they carried on their own shoulders.

Ephesians 2:10
For we are His workmanship, created in Messiah Yeshua for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.

Isaiah 43:21
The people whom I formed for Myself Will declare My praise.

John 15:4-16
Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not understand what his master is doing. But I have called you friends, because everything I have learned from My Father I have made known to you. You did not choose Me, but I chose you. And I appointed you to go and bear fruit — fruit that will remain — so that whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give you.

Isaiah 11:1
A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.

Psalm 92:14
They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green,

Psalm 128:3
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table.

Jeremiah 12:2
You have planted them, and they have taken root; they grow and bear fruit.

Psalm 52:8
But as for me, I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the lovingkindness of God forever and ever.

Parshat B’midbar 2016 – Scriptures for Shabbat

Messianic Rabbi David Levine

June 10-11, 2016

2 Chronicles 20:6-7

Lord, the God of our ancestors, are you not the God who is in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in your hand, and no one can withstand you. 7 Our God, did you not drive out the inhabitants of this land before your people Israel and give it forever to the descendants of Abraham your friend?

Isaiah 41:8

8 "But you, Israel, My servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, Descendant of Abraham My friend,…

James 2:23

It says, "Abraham believed God, and that faith was regarded by God to be his approval of Abraham." So Abraham was called God's friend.

Exodus 33:11

The LORD would speak to Moses personally, as a man speaks to his friend.

John 15:9-15

9 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.

Jeremiah 31:31-36

31 “The days are coming,” declares the Lord,“when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel

and with the people of Judah.

32 It will not be like the covenant I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to them” declares the Lord.

33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord.

“I will put my Torah in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.

34 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.”

35 This is what the Lord says, he who appoints the sun to shine by day, who decrees the moon and stars

to shine by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar—the Lord Almighty is his name:

36 “Only if these decrees vanish from my sight,” declares the Lord, “will Israel ever cease

being a nation before me.”

Joel 2:28-29

28 "It will come about after this That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and daughters will prophesy, Your old men will dream dreams, Your young men will see visions. 29 "Even on the male and female servants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.
