Hello, welcome! On June 25th, 2013, the messenger angel brought on this special message from God to Prophet Benjamin Cousijnsen.
Shalom! I greet you in the almighty Name of Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus Christ. Verily, verily, I tell you, I am the messenger angel Elionca.
Verily, I declare to you that one has not mentioned many prophecies and mighty miracles of Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus Christ in the holy scriptures, the Bible, which go beyond your understanding.
One has also not mentioned the Deuterocanonical scriptures, for example, in every Bible. And God said yet so clearly in:
Revelation 22, verse 19 If anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, may God take away his part from the tree of life, and out of the holy city, which are written in this book.
Verily, this is the history of Tobit.
He had been righteous and sincere all his life. Tobit was also captured by the Assyrians and was carried into exile to Nineveh. And Tobit went on the run there because they wanted to kill him. Verily, this is a brief introduction.
Read aloud: Tobit 2, verses 9 and 10, Tobit 3, verse 8 and verses 16 and 17, Tobit 4, verse 19, Tobit 5, verses 4 to 21, Tobit 7, verse 18 Verily, hear attentively! Tobit 8, verses 1 to 3, and Tobit 11, verses 1 and 2, and verses 6 to 14, and verses 17 and 18, and Tobit 12, verses 1 to 4, and verses 6 to 22
Tobit 2, verses 9 to 10 Here it is written: That night I washed, so as to purify myself, and went out into my courtyard to sleep by the wall. It was a hot night, and I did not pull the cover up over my head. Sparrows were on the wall right above me, but I did not know it. Their warm droppings fell into my eyes, causing a white film to form on them. I went to one doctor after another, but the more they treated me with their medicines, the worse my eyes became, until finally I was completely blind.
For four years I could see nothing. My relatives were deeply concerned about my condition, and Ahikar supported me for two years before he went to the land of Elam.
Tobit 3, verse 8 Here it is written: Sarah had been married seven times, but the evil demon, Asmodeus, killed each husband before the marriage could be consummated. The servant woman said to Sarah, “You husband killer! Look at you! You’ve already had seven husbands, but not one of them lived long enough to give you a son”.
And verses 16 and 17 As Tobit and Sarah were praying, God in heaven heard their prayers, and sent his angel Rafaël to help them. He was sent to remove the white film from Tobit’s eyes, so that he could see again, and to arrange a marriage between Sarah and Tobit’s son Tobias, who, as her cousin, had the right to marry her. Rafaël was also ordered to expel the demon Asmodeus from Sarah. At the very moment that Tobit went back into his house from the courtyard, Sarah, in her house in Ecbatana, was coming downstairs.
Tobit 4, verse 19 Here it is written: Take advantage of every opportunity to praise the Lord your God. Ask him to make you prosper in whatever you set out to do. He does not give his wisdom to the people of any other nation. He is the source of all good things, but he can also destroy you and bring you to certain death, if he wishes. Remember all my instructions. Don’t forget them for one minute.
Tobit 5, verses 4 to 21 Here it is written: Tobias then went out to look for someone who knew the way to Media and would travel with him. Almost as soon as he left the house, he found himself face-to-face with Rafaël. Tobias did not know that Rafaël was an angel of God, so he asked him where he was from.
“I am an Israelite,” Rafaël answered, “one of your distant relatives, and I have come here to Nineveh to find work”.
“Do you know the way to Media?” Tobias asked.
“Yes, I do,” Rafaël replied. “I have been there many times, and I know all the roads well. I used to stay with our relative Gabael, who lives there in the town of Rages. It takes at least two days to travel there from Ecbatana, the capital city, because Rages is up in the mountains.”
Then Tobias said to Rafaël, “Wait here for me, my friend, while I go in and tell my father. I would like for you to travel with me, and I will pay you for the journey”.
“All right,” Rafaël said, “I’ll wait, but don’t take too long.”
Tobias went in and told his father, “I have found an Israelite to travel with me”.
“Call the man in,” Tobit replied. “I would like to know what family and tribe he belongs to, and whether he is a reliable traveling companion for you”.
So Tobias went out and called to Rafaël, “My father would like to meet you.” When Rafaël came in, Tobit greeted him first.
Then Rafaël returned the greeting, “I hope all is well with you”.
But Tobit replied, “How can all be well with me? I’m blind and can’t see a thing. It’s like being dead and no longer able to see the light. I might as well be dead! I can hear people talking, but I can’t see them”.
“Cheer up!” Rafaël said to him. “God is going to cure you soon, so don’t worry!”
Tobit then said, “My son Tobias wants to go to Media. Can you go with him and show him the way? I will pay you, of course”.
Rafaël replied, “Certainly I can go with him. I have traveled there many times and I know all the roads in the mountains and on the plains”.
Tobit questioned him further, “Tell me, my friend, what family and tribe do you belong to?”
But Rafaël asked, “Why do you need to know that?”
“Tell me the truth,” said Tobit. “What is your name, and who are you?”
Rafaël replied, “My name is Azarias, and I am the son of the older Ananias, one of your relatives”.
Then Tobit said to him, “Welcome to our home! God bless you, my son. Please don’t be offended because I wanted to know the truth about you and your family. As it turns out, you are from a good family and a relative at that! I knew Ananias and Nathan, the two sons of the older Shemaiah. They were always loyal to their religion. We used to travel together to Jerusalem and worship there. Your relatives are fine people, and you come from good stock. Have a safe journey”.
Tobit continued, “I will pay the normal daily wage plus expenses for both of you. Be a good companion to Tobias, and I will add a bonus to your wages”.
“I will go with him,” Rafaël said. “And don’t worry; we will get there and back safely. The roads are not dangerous.”
“God be with you!” Tobit replied. Then he called Tobias and said to him, “Son, get everything ready that you need for the journey, so that the two of you can be on your way. May God and his angel watch over you both, and bring you back to me safe and sound”.
Before leaving for Media, Tobias kissed his father and mother good-bye. Tobit said again, “Have a safe journey!”
Then his mother began to cry. “How could you send my son away like this?” she complained. “He’s our only means of support. Who will take care of us now? Is that money so important to you that you are willing to risk your own son’s life to get it back? Why can’t we be content to live on what the Lord has given us?”
“Calm down,” Tobit said to her. “He will get there and back safely, and with your own eyes you will see him return home safe and sound. Now stop worrying about them, dear. A good angel will go with Tobias. He will have a successful journey and will come back in good health.” At that, Anna calmed down and stopped crying.
Tobit 7, verse 18 Here it is written: “Don’t worry, Sarah. I’m sure the Lord of heaven will make you happy this time and not sad. So cheer up, my dear.” Then Edna left the room.
Tobit 8, verses 1 to 3 Here it is written: When they had finished the meal, and it was time to go to bed, Sarah’s parents led young Tobias to the bedroom. He remembered Rafaël’s instructions, so he took the fish’s liver and heart out of the bag where he had been keeping them. Then he placed them on the burning incense. The smell drove the demon away from them, and he fled to Egypt. Rafaël chased after him and caught him there. At once he bound him hand and foot.
Tobit 11, verses 1 and 2 Here it is written: As they came near the city of Kaserin, just outside Nineveh, Rafaël said, “Tobias, you know the condition your father was in, when we left him”.
Verses 6 to 14 Suddenly she saw him coming and she shouted out to Tobit, “Look! Our son is coming, and his friend is with him!”
Before they reached Tobit, Rafaël said to Tobias, “Your father will be able to see again. Just put the fish’s gall bladder on his eyes like a plaster. The medicine will make the white film shrivel up so that you can peel it off, and your father will then regain his eyesight”.
Anna ran to her son, threw her arms around him, and exclaimed, “Now that I have seen you alive, my child, I can die in peace!” And she wept for joy.
Tobit got up and stumbled out through the entrance of the courtyard. Tobias went up to him, holding the fish’s gall bladder in his hand. He blew on his father’s eyes and steadied him. “Don’t worry now, father,” he said. Tobias then applied the gall, and beginning from the corners of Tobit’s eyes, he peeled away the white film.
Tobit threw his arms around Tobias’ neck and wept for joy. Then he exclaimed, “I can see you! My son, the light of my eyes! Praise God. Praise him for his greatness. Praise all his holy angels. May he continue to bless us. Praise all his angels forever!”
And verses 17 to 18 Tobit praised God and told everyone how God in his mercy had restored his sight.
When Tobit met Sarah, he greeted her, “Welcome, daughter! Praise God for bringing you to us, my daughter. May God bless your father, as well as you and my son Tobias. Welcome to your new home. May you always be blessed with good health and happiness. Come in, daughter!”
It was a day of great joy for all the Jews of Nineveh. Tobit’s nephews Ahikar and Nadab came by to share Tobit’s happiness with him.
Tobit 12, verses 1 to 4 Here it is written: When the wedding feast was over, Tobit called his son Tobias and said to him, “Son, be sure to pay your traveling companion, and don’t forget to give him a bonus”.
Tobias asked him, “Father, how much do you think I should pay him? I wouldn’t mind giving him half of everything we brought back with us. He brought me back home safe and sound; he went to get the money for me from Gabael; he rid my wife of a demon; and he cured your blindness. How much of a bonus should I give him?”
Tobit answered, “Give him half of what he helped you bring back. He well deserves that”.
And verses 6 to 22 Then Rafaël called the two men aside and said to them, “Praise God and tell everyone about the good things he has done for you, so that they too will honor him and sing his praises. Let everyone know what God has done. Never stop praising him. It’s a good idea to keep a king’s secret, but what God does should be told everywhere, so that he may be praised and honored. If you do good, no harm will come to you. It is better to pray sincerely and to please God by helping the poor than to be rich and dishonest. It is better to give to the poor than to store up gold. Such generosity will save you from death and will wash away all your sins. Those who give to the poor will live full lives, but those who live a life of sin and wickedness are their own worst enemies. I have already told you that a king’s secret ought to be kept, but the things God does, should be told to everyone. Now I will reveal to you the full truth and keep nothing back. Tobit, when you and Sarah prayed to the Lord, I was the one who brought your prayers into his glorious presence. I did the same thing each time you buried the dead. On the day you got up from the table without eating your meal in order to bury that corpse, God sent me to test you. But he also sent me to cure you and to rescue your daughter-in-law, Sarah, from her troubles. I am Rafaël, one of the seven angels who stand in the glorious presence of the Lord, ready to serve him”.
Tobit and Tobias were terrified and fell to the ground, trembling with fear. But Rafaël said to them, “Don’t be afraid; everything is all right. Always remember to praise God. He wanted me to come and help you; I did not come on my own. So sing God’s praises as long as you live. When you thought you saw me eating, I did not really eat anything; it only seemed so. While you are on this earth, you must praise the Lord God and give him thanks. Now I must go back to him who sent me. Write down everything that has happened to you”.
Then Rafaël disappeared into the sky. Tobit and Tobias stood up, but they could no longer see him. They began to sing hymns of praise, giving thanks for all the mighty deeds God had done, while his angel Rafaël had been with them.
I’m going now, spoke the messenger angel of God, Ruacha, Yeshu, Shalom!
And also I say to you, Ruacha, Yeshu, Shalom!
