Shalom, shalom; peace, peace in the name of Yeshua. This is Crystal Sharpe and welcome to the Ancient Scrolls program.

The 28th is the Lord’s feast of Shavuot, we would say Pentecost. The church’s Pentecost will be May 31st.
The positive news today is that Yeshua is returning. We are in the final days of the outpouring of His Spirit. Someone I am friends with on Facebook posted what the Lord spoke to him, this is right at the beginning of the COVID 19 pandemic: “Repent! Work while it is yet day! Jesus is coming soon!” This was a confirmation to me that we are hearing accurately from the Lord.
There have been a few praise reports this week. A friend of mine requested prayer for her friend who is a physician, it was concerning her heart; but she was healed and she no longer has to have heart surgery. A friend of mine was diagnosed with bone cancer once again. We began interceding for him. He had to take a battery of tests to see how far it had advanced and discuss another treatment plan; but the results came back from these last tests that the cancer was no longer evident. So, we rejoiced in the Lord that our prayers were heard and answered. Another friend had developed a lump on her face, and she was concerned about it. We began to pray concerning it and other matters and a few days later she told me after we had prayed the lump diminished in size considerably and is now barely noticeable. So, we praise the Lord, He is answering our prayers. Also, the Lord answered three of our prayers concerning some personal matters. It is as if there is this open heaven where God is easily entreated, or petitioned.
For near to two years I have been making the declaration that we are at the end of this age and because we are closer to His kingdom coming, we will see more evidence of healings and repentance. There is also going to be, and this is actually coming to pass in some cases already, but some Christians are going to receive more than enough finances. Even this week I have noticed Christians are being favored with finances. This is will continue to increase as the weeks so by. If some of you happen to be blessed with finances, remember to prepare for the great persecution that is coming. The church eventually will have to go underground.
Even this past week arsonists burned the First Pentecostal church in Holly Springs, Mississippi. Some years ago, my mother heard from the Lord and she told me churches will have to go back in behind wooded areas where their activities could not be detected. The depopulation experts like Bill Gates, Fauci, the satanic, Gestapo, news media has implemented the snitch program, the same one the Nazis had perfected in Germany. Everyone reports their neighbors to the Gestapo.
The Father is pouring out of His Spirit upon all flesh so look for some of your family members to come into the kingdom of Yeshua. This is a signal that His return is near, and because it is near–revelation and demonstration of His kingdom will become more noticeable. I anticipate the Messianic kingdom knowing righteousness and justice will reign at last.
I follow patterns in the Word that will confirm a revelation He has given me. One revelation is that some of His people are going to receive abundant finances I just mentioned and they will seek out others who will prepare for the great persecution.
We are in the time of His favor, His servants are now experiencing His favor.
Shema, O Israel, the LORD God, the LORD is One. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
The earth is the Lord’s and the fulness thereof; the world and those who dwell therein.
You are the King of the Universe; King over all creation. You alone are righteous, just and Holy. We pray to be cleansed of all unrighteousness so that our prayers will be effective against the designs and strategies of the enemy.
We thank You, Father, for revival. We thank You that Your plans and purposes will be fulfilled in the nations. We thank You for Your Word. Your Word is a blessing to us. You are a life giver. We bless You and are appreciative of who You are; You alone are God.
In Yeshua’s name we pray.
For some years the Lord has shown me a revival was coming, and He told me, I am thinking 3 years ago, He said nothing would stop this next move He has planned. Accompanying this revival, it is like His presence will be extravagant, excessive, almost unrestrained in creation. It will be discernable. Many people will receive healings, others will be delivered from demons and homosexuality, mental disorders, other sexually deviant addictions, drug addictions and a multitude will come into the kingdom in spite of the persecution; this will be as many who will choose the kingdom of God over the world.
What the Word gives us is a couple of places where Israel experienced his favor with deliverance and finances. We are going to look at Exodus chapters 3 and 11; and Ezra chapters 1 and 7.
Let’s take a look at Exodus first. Israel is about to go out of Egypt which represents the world system. God speaks to Moses in Exodus 3:21,
- So I will stretch out My hand and strike with all My wonders which I will do in its midst; and after that he will let you go. And I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians; and it shall be, when you go, that you shall not go empty-handed. But every woman shall ask of her neighbor, namely, of her who dwells near her house, articles of silver, articles of gold, and clothing; and you shall put them on your sons and daughters. So, you shall plunder the Egyptians.
In Exodus 11
There have been nine plagues sent on Egypt and the tenth is about to happen, which is the death of the firstborn. And the LORD said to Moses, I will bring one more plague on Pharaoh and on Egypt. Afterward he will let you go from here. When he lets you go, he will surely drive you out of here altogether. 2. Speak now in the hearing of the people, and let every man ask from his neighbor and every woman from her neighbor, articles of silver and articles of gold. 3. And the LORD gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover, the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants and in the sight of the people.
Let’s focus on the word favor, in Hebrew favor is the word chen (hayn), can be interpreted to mean grace or kindness in certain passages.
The great 19th century commentator, Rabbi Baruch Halevi Epstein (the Torah Temimah), comments that chen implies the receipt of something not through one’s own merit but rather through the grace and kindness of the giver. God’s servants are even now experiencing His favor and it will not cease, because His kingdom is approaching us and the closer it gets the more favor will be available to us.
Favor from the Lord causes others to be attracted to you. And in these days before the return of Yeshua, His people will have favor, an attractiveness that cannot be explained by others. Christ in us will be attractive to them. Some would call it an anointing, but it is His heavy presence upon His people. It is a dwelling with His people, much like when Israel was in the wilderness and His presence was seen in the camp as a cloud during the day and a pillar of fire by night.
The word itself means “beauty or loveliness,” and literally in the paleo-Hebrew means “to separate from the outside” or “protect life;” and what He considers beautiful is protected from the outside world through Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah.
In the book of Exodus, Israel is leaving Egypt, they are going to Mt Sinai to receive Torah, which is the binding covenant made with her husband God. After this, God the Husband has planned to give them the promised land Canaan. They will take with them the riches of Egypt which was Israel’s wages for having to work as slaves for the Egyptians.
The pattern is the seen in our current time, the kingdom of heaven approaching which is the promised land, and before we enter it, riches will be given to His people to help others in need at this time and to prepare for the wave of persecution that is coming, and many riches will be left over to take into the Messianic kingdom in Israel. Camels will bring the riches of the nations to the Messiah.
Another place in the Word where favor is given to them is found in the book of Ezra. Ezra is the Aramaic form of the Hebrew word ezer, “help,” and perhaps means “YaHVeH helps.” The southern kingdom, Judah, had been taken captive to Babylon and they served under King Nebuchadnezzar. In time the kingdom of Persia conquered Babylon as prophesied by Daniel and Jeremiah. In the book of Ezra, Zerubabbel led the first return of the Jews to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple Ezra 1:1-
Now all the provinces are under the Persian King Cyrus (means sun). Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and also put it in writing, saying: Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: All the kingdoms of the earth the Lord God of heaven has given me, and He has commanded me to build Him a house at Jerusalem which is in Judah. Who is among you of all His people? May his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem which is in Judah, and build the house of the LORD God of Israel (He is God), which is in Jerusalem. 4. And whoever is left in any place where he dwells, let the men of his place help him with silver and gold, with goods and livestock, besides the freewill offerings, for the house of God which is in Jerusalem.
Then the heads of the fathers’ houses of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests and the Levites, with all whose spirits God had moved, arose to go up and build the house of the LORD which is in Jerusalem. And all those who were around them encouraged them with articles of silver and gold, with goods and livestock, and with precious things, besides all that was willingly offered.
There was a second return of the Jews directed by Ezra under King Artaxerxes in chapter 7:11-
This is the copy of the letter that King Artaxerxes (righteous ruler) gave Ezra the priest, the scribe, expert in the words of the commandments of the LORD, and of His statutes to Israel:
Artaxerxes king, king of kings, To Ezra the priest, a scribe of the Law of the God of heaven: I issue a decree that all those of the people of Israel and the priests and Levites in my realm, who volunteer to go up to Jerusalem, may go with you. And whereas you are to carry the silver and gold which the king and his counselors have freely offered to the God of Israel, whose dwelling is in Jerusalem; and whereas all the silver and gold that you may find in all the province of Babylon, along with the freewill offering of the people and the priests, are to be freely offered for the house of their God in Jerusalem—now therefore, be careful to buy with this money bulls, rams, and lambs, with their grain offerings and their drink offerings, and offer them on the altar of the house of your God in Jerusalem. And whatever seems good to you and your brethren to do with the rest of the silver and gold, do it according to the will of your God. And the articles that are given to you for the service of the house of your God, deliver in full before the God of Jerusalem.
And whatever more may be needed for the house of your God, which you may have occasion to provide, pay for it from the king’s treasury. And I, even I, Artaxerxes the king, issue a decree to all the treasurers who in the region beyond the River, that whatever Ezra the priest, the scribe of the Law of the God of heaven, may require of you, let it be done diligently, up to one hundred talents of silver (full redemption, full grace), one hundred kors of wheat (this symbolizes the material realm), one hundred baths of wine (represents understanding, the doctrines of God,), one hundred baths of oil (the anointing of God coming upon us a hundred fold, in fullness), and salt without prescribed limit (this means preservation, consecration, sanctification). Whatever is commanded by the God of heaven, let it diligently be done for the house of the God of heaven. For why should there be wrath against the realm of the king and his sons?
A hundred means fullness, full measure, full recompense, full reward: it is pressed down, shaken together, running over, it will be placed in your bosom. Luke 6:38.
But I am at the end of the program.
If it is God’s will, I will be here next program. Remember to walk by faith and not by sight. Ask God to cleanse you from all unrighteousness every day. Keep your spiritual garments clean from spots, wrinkles and blemishes. Do two things this week: love and forgive. Love God and love your neighbor.
Ricco Cortes will sing the Aaronic priestly blessing.
