Vayeira, in Hebrew means, “And He appeared”. The Hebrew root word ra’ah (to see; to look at; look beyond) comes alive in this Torah portion. Mere human eyes cannot see (ra’ah) the potential prophetic imagery you contain. The true Messiah – YHWH – is hidden in you. In other words, to see another by the spirit, the flesh must be circumcised.
If you have the true Messiah, you are going to believe in His resurrection, in your resurrection, and in the resurrection of the whole House of Israel. Seeing with spiritual eyes, you will develop the ability to see into the heart of people. Judah and Ephraim among the nations may not have the appearance that you expect, and may not even be recognizable to the human eye. You must be able to ra’ah – see with spiritual eyes.
Yeshua is certainly coming, however, when you remove the flesh and circumcise your eyes, when you look into the hearts of your brothers in the nations, you will see that Yeshua is not only coming, He is already here! If indeed, Yeshua is in you and in your brother, then He is appearing in the world and He is the world to come.
