A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
The Eternal People of the Book are the Jews, through whom the ALMIGHTY ONE gave the HOLY SCRIPTURES to the world. 

OUR BLESSINGS IN MESSIAH 
"For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from GOD, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens." [2 Corinthians 5. 1] 

The blessings we have in YESHUA ha'MASHIACH are far too vast and numerous to calculate, but it is a blessing to retell a few. First, "In HIM (our BELOVED SAVIOR) we have redemption through HIS blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of HIS grace." [Ephesians 1. 7] As a result, "being justified by faith, we have peace with GOD through our LORD JESUS CHRIST." [Romans 5. 1] 

GOD'S PRECIOUS WORD assures us of salvation through these promises. "These things I have written to you who believe in the NAME of the SON OF GOD, that you may know that you have eternal life." [1 John 5. 13] A greater assurance is given by the witness of the SPIRIT OF GOD WHO indwells our bodies when we believe on the LORD JESUS, THE ROCK of our salvation, THE ROCK of our strength. "You have received the SPIRIT of adoption, whereby we cry — ABBA, FATHER!" [Romans 8. 15] 

There are many other blessings that are ours in the MESSIAH YESHUA, "we have obtained an inheritance" [Ephesians 1. 11] for we are joint-heirs with JESUS, the TRUE VINE; YESHUA, our REFUGE. GOD OMNIPOTENT confirmed HIS promises in the book of Hebrews when HE declare — "we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us. This HOPE we have as an ANCHOR of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters THE PRESENCE behind the veil." [Hebrews 6. 18 - 19] "We have a GREAT HIGH PRIEST WHO has passed through the heavens, JESUS, the SON OF GOD." [Hebrews 4. 14] And HE is ever-living "to make intercession" for us at the THRONE OF GOD. [Hebrews 7. 25] 

Ultimately, when our ALL-WISE & LOVING MASTER CREATOR calls us home, "we have a building of GOD, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens." And we will "be present with the LORD" throughout the ages to come. [2 Corinthians 5. 8] There are countless treasures awaiting us, but the greatest of all is — we have forgiveness of sins; we have the LORD YESHUA, the PRINCE OF PEACE in our lives now and we will be with HIM forevermore. HalleluYAH!!! 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel , O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
O EVER-FAITHFUL GOD, keep my tongue from evil and my lips from speaking guile. Be my SUPPORT when grief silences my voice, and my COMFORT when woe bends my spirit. Plant humility in my soul, and strengthen my heart with perfect faith in YOU. Help me to be strong in trials and temptations and to be humble always before YOU, my STRONG-TOWER. Guide me by the LIGHT of YOUR counsel, and let me ever find rest in YOU — my ROCK and my REDEEMER. Praised be the LORD GOD to WHOM all praise is due for ever and ever. We bow the head and bend the knee and magnify the KING of kings, the HOLY ONE, praised be HE. Amen! 
Shana Tova uMetukah! We wish you and your family a happy, healthy year – may you have a year filled with meaning and purpose and happiness that will surely follow. 
Day 26 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
Great is repentance; it turns sins into incentives for correct conduct. 

RECONCILIATION 
"A man takes a wife and marries her. She fails to please him because he finds something obnoxious about her, and he writes her a bill of divorcement, hands it to her, and sends her away from his house; she leaves his household and becomes the wife of another man; then this latter husband rejects her, writes her a bill of divorcement, hands it to her, and sends her away from him; or the man who married her last dies. Then her first husband who divorced her shall not take her to wife again, since she has been defiled — disqualified for him — for that would be abhorrent to the LORD. You must not bring sin upon the land that the LORD your GOD is giving you as a heritage." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 24. 1 - 4 Tanakh, Torah] 

The marvelous ministry of reconciliation has been distorted by many churches and fellow-CHRISTians when they have failed to read and follow the WRITTEN SCRIPTURES dealing with marriage and re-marriage. Even King David honoured GOD'S commandment with his concubines after they were defiled by Absalom, putting them in "a guarded place, he provided for them, but did not cohabit with them. They remained in seclusion until the day they died, living in widowhood." [2 Samuel (Shemuel Bet) 20. 3 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

"If a man divorces his wife, and she leaves him and marries another man, can he ever go back to her?" [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 3. 1 Tanakh, Nevi'im] The answer is emphatically — No! it would be an abomination before the HOLY & RIGHTEOUS LORD GOD because she has been defiled. On the other hand, if the couple separates for a time and remain pure, they may be reconciled together again. "Now to the married I command, yet not I but the LORD: A wife is not to depart from her husband. But even if she does depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. And a husband is not to divorce his wife." [2 Corinthians 7. 10 - 11] 

However, dealing with our relationship with the ALL-WISE ETERNAL ONE, though we have been defiled by sin, HE has said: "Turn back to ME — says the LORD OF HOSTS — and I will return to you — said the LORD OF HOSTS." [Zechariah (Zecharyah) 1. 3 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

The work of reconciling lost men back to a relationship with HOLY GOD is only possible as provided by the precious blood of the PRINCE OF PEACE, MESSIAH YESHUA through HIS shed blood of atonement. HE has committed this ministry to us, HIS servants. A CHRIST-like life can only be gained if we are centered in the LORD JESUS and "those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for HIM WHO died for them and rose again." [2 Corinthians 5. 15] 

As we serve in the ministry of reconciliation, may we do the service of the MOST HOLY GOD as HE commands and not by our own understanding. "Therefore, if anyone is in CHRIST, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of GOD, WHO has reconciled us to HIMSELF through JESUS CHRIST, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that GOD was in CHRIST reconciling the world to HIMSELF, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Now then, we are ambassadors for CHRIST, as though GOD were pleading through us: we implore you on MESSIAH'S behalf, be reconciled to GOD." [2 Corinthians 5. 17 - 20] Like our BLESSED MASTER, look for good and encourage with forgiveness. 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel , O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Welcome Sabbath! We thank YOU, Great & MIGHTY GOD for by YOUR mercies and grace we were taught the sanctity of the weekly day of rest, Sabbath is the sign of the tie that binds us to YOU. Keep us ever grateful and grant us YOUR perfect rest. Amen 
Shabbos calls us to bring the highest moral values. to our daily labor and to culminate the workweek with kedushah (holiness), menuchah (rest), and oneg (joy). May God, Whose grace is irresistible and all sufficient, be glorified. 
As we celebrate Yamym Noraym (High Holy Days); may GOD'S PRECIOUS WRITTEN WORD be the center of your life. In it, you will find sweet honey in the ROCK. As the Shofar sounds, we are reminded that the KING OF THE Universe loves us, is thinking about us, and cares about our lives. HE is judging us because HE loves us. It is crucial to remember that, with GOD no matter how we feel about HIM, HIS love for us is unwavering. Have a blessed day as you saturate yourself in the sweetness of the MIGHTY LORD, the SOURCE OF LIFE. 
Day 28 of Repentance 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

There is no reason to try predicting the future, the BIBLE has already done that. . . and with greater certainty. 

EVEN NOW 
"You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, HIS OWN special people, that you may proclaim the praises of HIM WHO called you out of darkness into HIS marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of GOD, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy." [1 Peter 2. 9 - 10] 

There are so very many marvelous and wondrous things that await us IF we have trusted the LORD Messiah YesHUA for our salvation — specifically, His mercies: "The LORD is longsuffering, slow to anger, abundant in mercy and abounding in kindness; forgiving iniquity and transgression." [Numbers (B'Midvar) 14. 18 Tanakh, Torah] "One thing GOD has spoken; two things have I heard — That Might belongs to ADONEY, and Faithfulness is YOURS, O LORD, to reward each man according to his deeds." [Psalms (Tehillym) 62. 11 - 12 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

It is written, "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which GOD has prepared for those who love HIM." [1 Corinthians 2. 9] However, do not miss the next line. . . "But GOD has revealed them to us through HIS SPIRIT. For the SPIRIT searches all things, yes, the deep things of GOD." [1 Corinthians 2. 10] "The concealed (secret) things belong to the LORD GOD, but the overt acts (those things which are clearly revealed), it is for us and to our children ever to apply all the words and provisions of this TEACHING (Law)." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 29. 29 Tanakh, Torah] This means that we are free from any condemnation at the Judgment. "There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in CHRIST JESUS, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the SPIRIT. For the Law of the SPIRIT of life in CHRIST JESUS has made me free from the law of sin and death." [Romans 8. 1 - 2] 

We have been justified already, declared righteous with the righteousness of MESSIAH YESHUA HIMSELF. "GOD demonstrates HIS OWN love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, CHRIST died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by HIS blood, we shall be saved from wrath through HIM. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to GOD through the death of HIS SON, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by HIS life." [Romans 5. 8 - 10] "But now the righteousness of GOD apart from the Law is revealed — even the righteousness of GOD, through faith in CHRIST JESUS, to all and on all who believe." [Romans 3. 21 – 22] We are now the people of the RIGHTEOUS, LOVING, HOLY GOD who have obtained mercy. 

In the magnificent passage, the precious Apostle John confirms the glorious truth, "Beloved, now we are children of GOD; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when HE is revealed, we shall be like HIM, for we shall see HIM as HE is." [1 John 3. 2] 

As CHRIST-like-ones, we have the wonderful assurance that our blessed LORD YESHUA is praying for us, even now for Messiah, the perfect REFUGE, is entered into Heaven itself. "For MESSIAH has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of GOD for us" [Hebrews 9. 24] since "HE always lives to make intercession for them." [Hebrews 7. 25] 

"Now to Him Who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to GOD our SAVIOR, WHO alone is wise, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever, Amen!" [Jude 24 - 25] What a MIGHTY GOD we serve! 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel , O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Judgment is coming, troubles are coming, and we must live disciplined, enduring CHRIST-filled lives. Lives disciplined by the WORD OF GOD and empowered by HIS HOLY SPIRIT to give us strength and courage to fight evil and to triumph over it. May the WONDROUS LORD GOD grant you the privilege to witness and experience the marvelous miracle of being delivered from the yoke of slavery to sin. All glory and praise to the ALMIGHTY LORD GOD, KING OF CREATION forever! 
Our prayer is that Rosh ha’Shanah marks a new beginning for you. . . through a year blessed with goodness and promise through MESSIAH YESHUA the KING OF Glory. And, as you observe the High Holy Days, may your home be filled with love and may the year ahead be filled with sweetness. May happiness, love, and the joy of Messiah reign in your lives daily. Amen! 
Day 27 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
Even in excess, there should be moderation. 

MESSIAH'S SPECIAL PEOPLE 
"Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured or numbered. And it shall come to pass in the place where it was said to them — You are not MY people — there it shall be said to them — You are sons of the LIVING GOD." [Hosea (Hoshea) 1. 10; 2. 23 w/Romans 9. 19 - 26] 

Contrary to the thinking of some, CHRISTianity is not a Gentile religion but is completely Jewish! CHRISTianity is the fulfillment of the Jewish faith found in the OLD COVENANT! Jews today who believe in MESSIAH YESHUA have not left the faith of their forefathers but rather have rediscovered it. The verses in Hosea meant that the HOLY ONE would cut the people off officially as a people, and during that time HE would refuse to be their GOD. [v. 9] Regardless of being cut off, they would eventually multiply, be great, and again be called the children of God. [v. 10]

Compare this with the NEW COVENANT promise where Peter is writing to both Jewish and Gentile believers in the LORD JESUS, "But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, HIS OWN special people, that you may proclaim the praises of HIM WHO called you out of darkness into HIS marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of GOD, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy." [1 Peter 2. 9 - 10] This is the same declaration YEHOWAH promised to Israel in the OLD COVENANT — "Now then, if you will obey ME faithfully, and keep MY Covenant, you shall be MY treasured possession among all the peoples. Indeed, all the earth is MINE, but you shall be to ME a kingdom of priests and a holy nation." [Exodus (Shemot) 19. 5 - 6 Tanakh, Torah] 

The covenant stands and has been extended to the Gentiles who believe in MESSIAH. Jews who believe in MESSIAH YESHUA have not deserted their nation but weep with their MESSIAH over the continued sorrow of their beloved people who reject the PROMISED ONE OF GOD. Jewish believers today are NEW COVENANT MESSIANIC believers who see and follow the faith of ancient Israel as fulfilled in the LORD JESUS CHRIST. 

The TORAH agrees fully with the Commandments of YESHUA, the problem is in the man-made rules and regulations (Judaism) that go beyond the moral law of the TORAH. Judaism is so wrapped up in the letter of the Law, they missed the heart of the Law as GOD intended in it. GOD'S desire for HIS people has never changed, HIS plan has always extended to include Gentiles who believe. 

The CHRISTian Church, as recorded in the NEW COVENANT, was composed exclusively of Jewish believers in YESHUA until about twelve years after HIS ascension into heaven! CHRISTianity, pure CHRISTianity, was not rejected by our Jewish forefathers, but was accepted by them. They were the first to preach the GOOD NEWS, the GOSPEL OF YESHUA their MESSIAH, and defended it with their lives. The GOSPEL happened to be Jewish all the way through! In the early CHRISTian church of the NEW COVENANT, the rare thing was to find a Gentile believer among them! 

Neither is the Church today a continuation of Judaism. ALMIGHTY GOD declared that the COVENANT OF MOUNT SINAI (MOSAIC LAW) was broken by Israel . [Jeremiah/Yirmeyah 31. 31 - 34] Through MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD provided a New Covenant for Jews and Gentiles. This COVENANT does not mean "Jewish" nor does it destroy the Old Covenant, it confirms and fulfills it. [Matthew 5. 17; Romans 3. 31; 8. 4] Judaism does not mean "Jewish" nor does it make anyone Jewish who practices its beliefs, holidays, and ceremonies. True, the religion of national, unconverted Israel today is Judaism, but it is not the pure faith of their ancestors as we find recorded in the HEBREW SCRIPTURES! 

The Church began in the OLD COVENANT days and was composed of Jews who believed in the coming MESSIAH. The Hebrew word by which the church was called is kahila or edah meaning a religious assembly or congregation. 

It is sad to realize that many of my Jewish people do not know the difference between a Gentile and a CHRISTian. They feel they are one and the same. It has been thought that all who are not Jewish are Gentiles and that all Gentiles are CHRISTians. {That is what this writer was taught.} Nothing could be further from the truth! The WORD OF GOD describes a CHRISTian as one who has come out of GOD-lessness into the faith of the JEWISH MESSIAH & REDEEMER. There are many Gentiles who do not believe in the LORD JESUS and follow HIM, even as there are many Jews who do not accept HIM. Not all those who call themselves CHRISTians are really CHRIST-like-ones, true followers of CHRIST JESUS, just as not all who are Jewish are followers of Judaism. A true CHRISTian is, first of all, a believer in IMMANU’EL, THE ANOINTED ONE. That follower will have a spirit of love and of compassion for all men, Jew or Gentile, that they may be freed from the bondage of sin. A true CHRISTian is one who prays for both Jews and Gentiles to receive the LORD JESUS into their hearts so that they may have peace with GOD ETERNAL. 

YESHUA ha'MASHIACH did not come to bring a new religion, but to fulfill the HEBREW SCRIPTURES. The NEW COVENANT is not a NEW BOOK, but is the continuation and completion of the OLD. What is hidden in the FIRST TESTAMENT is revealed in the NEW. When a Jewish person accepts YESHUA as their MESSIAH & SAVIOR, he becomes a true Jew! He has accepted what belongs to him by GOD'S COVENANT with his fathers. The Church of the NEW COVENANT (which developed out of the Church of the FIRST TESTAMENT) was composed of Jewish believers. According to a record in history, there were 25,000 Jews who recognized and accepted JESUS as their MESSIAH soon after Shavuoth (Pentecost) 2,000 years ago. YESHUA, WHO was a Jew according to GOD'S promises concerning MESSIAH'S genealogy, does not expect any Jew to change the fact that he is Jewish, but wants every Jew to come into living touch with GOD, to love GOD with all his heart, soul, and mind. 

Jewish believers in the LORD YESHUA ha'MASHIACH know and love the SCRIPTURES of the FIRST COVENANT more than ever they did before. They know the meaning of the holidays and customs of their forefathers. They have been brought to a greater sympathy and understanding and also a greater love for Israel . They now have a deep impression on their hearts (put there by the MASTER DESIGNER HIMSELF) to pray for their own Jewish people everywhere that they see the LIGHT and come into the NEW COVENANT with HIM. They do not deny their heritage, but realize more than ever that they are the natural descendants of Abraham through Isaac and Jacob — not only Jewish by descent — but true Jews inwardly, sons of GOD'S PROMISE, for they have come into HIS NEW COVENANT; they believe on JESUS as their LORD, MESSIAH, ROCK OF SALVATION, and their Soon-Coming King. 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel , O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
LORD, thank YOU that YOU continue to keep us in life and to preserve us that we may observe YOUR statutes, to do YOUR will, and serve YOU with a perfect heart; seeing that we give thanks to YOU. Blessed be ALMIGHTY GOD to WHOM thanksgivings, honor and praise are due. 
As you observe the High Holy Days, may your home be filled with love and may the year ahead be filled with sweetness. May happiness, love and the joy of Messiah reign in your lives daily. 
"Ketiva Vahatima Tova — may your inscription and seal be for good." 
Day 25 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
"If you don't know what you're living for, you haven't yet lived." [–Rabbi Noah Weinberg] 
Life is the most precious thing we have. Everyone wants to live a meaningful life, but we are so occupied with living that we don't have a moment to really think about living. Ask the important consequential questions about life and start focusing on living a life of real purpose that will be eternally blessed. 


THREE TABERNACLES 
"Exactly as I show you — the pattern of the Tabernacle and the pattern of all its furnishings — so shall you make it." [Exodus (Shemot) 25. 9 Tanakh, Torah] 

This is the first mention of the Tabernacle wherein the religious life of Israel was centered during their time of wandering in the desert. All the details of its design, construction, and service occupy thirteen chapters in Exodus/Shemot — more times then any other item in HOLY WRIT. These details provide a wealth of typological intimations of the person and work of the LORD YESHUA ha’MASHIACH. 

However, this Tabernacle was based on the pattern of "the TRUE TABERNACLE which the LORD erected, and not man." [Hebrews 8. 2] "But MESSIAH came as HIGH PRIEST...the greater and more perfect TABERNACLE...entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption." [Hebrews 9. 11 - 12] There is a Heavenly Tabernacle where the ALL-TOGETHER LOVELY ONE now dwells, and the furnishings and service of the earthly tabernacle where mere "copies of the things in the heavens." [Hebrews 9. 23] "YESHUA has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the True, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of GOD for us." [Hebrews 9. 24 - 25] 

Even as promised in the OLD COVENANT, "I will set MY TABERNACLE among you...I will walk among you and be your GOD, and you shall be MY people." [Leviticus/Vayikra 26. 11 - 12], the REDEEMER OF ISRAEL also came to earth, entering as the third TABERNACLE. "And the WORD became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld HIS glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the FATHER, full of grace and truth." [John 1. 14] In the Greek, the word skeenoo translated “dwelt” is actually means "tabernacle, to tent, encamp, occupy, reside (symbolic of protection and communion)" — thus the human body that YESHUA had became GOD’S TABERNACLE, and HE will dwell there forever. Although that body died, it was raised incorruptible, immortal, eternal...yet still it is a physical body, merely one that will never die again. 

Finally, we have MESSIAH’S glorious assurance in the last book of the NEW COVENANT, that in this TABERNACLE, HE will dwell among us eternally. "Behold, the TABERNACLE OF GOD is with men, and HE will dwell with them, and they shall be HIS people. GOD HIMSELF will be with them and be their GOD." [Revelation 21. 3 - 4] It just keeps getting better and better for the saints of all ages! HalleluYAH! 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Praised is YOUR HOLY NAME, O LORD GOD. YOU have made YOUR eternal law our portion, and gave us a goodly heritage. YOU appointed us to proclaim YOUR truth to the nations and to win them for YOUR Law of Righteousness. Sanctify us for the service to which YOU called us, O HEAVENLY FATHER, that YOUR NAME may be hallowed through us in all the world. Gather all YOUR children around YOUR banner of truth that YOUR praise may resound from one end of the earth to the other, and that the entire human family may be blessed with truth and peace! 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

 A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small bundle! 

ASK WHAT YOU WILL 
"ELOHIYM appeared to Solomon and said to him — Ask, what shall I grant you? — Solomon answered — YOU dealt most graciously with my father David, and now You have made me king in his stead. Now, LORD GOD, let YOUR promise to my father David be fulfilled; for YOU have made me king over a people as numerous as the dust of the earth. Grant me then the wisdom and knowledge to lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of YOURS?" [2 Chronicles (Dibre Hayamin Bet) 1. 7 - 10 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

Solomon is the only man recorded in HOLY SCRIPTURE that OMNIPOTENT GOD gave the opportunity to choose or ask for his heart's desires. The HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL knew Solomon's heart, that he would want wisdom, knowledge and understanding so he could reign over the Israelite peoples and influence them in a GOD-fearing supremacy. 

The LOVING CREATOR was pleased that Solomon had asked for this. And ALMIGHTY GOD said to him, "Because you asked for this — you did not ask for long life, you did not ask for riches, you did not ask for the life of your enemies, but you asked for discernment in dispensing justice — I now do as you have spoken. I grant you a wise and discerning mind; there has never been anyone like you before, nor will anyone like you arise. And I also grant you what you did not ask for — both riches and glory all your life — the like of which no king has ever had. And I will further grant you long life, IF you will walk in My ways and observe MY Laws and commandments, as did your father David." [1 Kings (Melakhim Alef) 3. 10 - 14 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Many people quote Scripture to test the HOLY GOD OF HEAVEN, and they are usually asking for their own self embellishment (exaggeration, elaboration, amplification). However, when we allow the LORD OF GLORY to prepare our heart, HE hears our prayer and will gladly give us HIS HOLY SPIRIT. "Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but desire realized is a Tree of Life." [Proverbs (Mishle) 13. 12 Tanakh, Kethuvim] When the desire of our heart is HIS Command, our life is marvelous and indescribably joyous, even in adversities. We are confident that all comes from HIS precious hands, and HE is always with us. 

The LORD YESHUA ha'MASHIACH taught, "in that day you will ask ME nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the FATHER in MY NAME HE will give you. Until now you have asked nothing in MY NAME. Ask! and you will receive, that your joy may be full." [John 16. 23 - 24] If we ask according to the will of the GOD OF OUR SALVATION, we would be asking for the HOLY SPIRIT, for HIS wisdom, discernment, courage and protection. "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly FATHER give the HOLY SPIRIT to those who ask HIM!" [Luke 11. 13] 

"Delight yourself in the favor of the LORD, and HE will grant you the desires of your heart. Leave all your way to the LORD; trust in HIM; and HE will do it." [Psalms (Tehillym) 37. 4 - 5 Tanakh, Kethuvim] The desire of my heart is to be like my LORD & SAVIOR, MESSIAH YESHUA! How about you? We need the HOLY SPIRIT to accomplish this. 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Help us, O our GOD, to banish from our hearts all pride and vain-glory, all confidence in worldly possessions, all self-sufficient leaning upon our own reason. Fill us with the spirit of meekness and the grace of modesty, that we may become wise in the fear of YOU. May we never forget that all we have and prize is but lent to us, a trust for which we must render account to YOU. O HEAVENLY FATHER , put into our hearts the love and fear of YOU, that we my consecrate our lives to YOUR service and glorify YOUR NAME in the eyes of all men. 
Day 24 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
The message on our coins is "in GOD we trust" — but all too often the message of our lives is that it is wealth we really worship and trust. 

BY NO MEANS 
"Whoever receives you receives ME, and he who receives ME receives HIM WHO sent ME. He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward." [Matthew 10. 40 - 42] 

The phrase "by no means" is the translation of two single-syllables in the Greek language, which in effect becomes a double negative, stressing that the thing mentioned will absolutely in no way will ever happen. The expression can also be translated "in no case; in no wise; or not at all." Thus, it is very instructive to notice a few such instances in HOLY SCRIPTURE which can never ever happen: 

The opening Text says that any small kindness done in the NAME of YESHUA or one of HIS followers, will by no means go unrewarded. MESSIAH even declared, "whoever does not receive the Kingdom of GOD like a little child will by no means enter it." [Luke 18. 17] HE also stated — "All that the FATHER gives ME will come to ME, and the one who comes to ME I will by no means cast out. For I have come down from Heaven, not to do MY OWN will, but the will of HIM WHO sent ME. This is the will of the Father WHO sent ME, that of all HE has given ME I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the Last Day. And this is the will of HIM WHO sent ME, that everyone who sees the SON and believes in HIM may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the Last Day." [John 6. 37 - 40] 

This shows that both HIS warnings and HIS assurances are pointedly positive! Mere outward righteousness will never be sufficient. YESHUA emphatically stated, "unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven." [Matthew 5. 20] 

Whosoever will come to the MASTER, however are promised that HE "will never leave you nor forsake you." [Hebrews 13. 5] "Remember, I am with you and will keep (protect) you wherever you go...for I will not leave you." [Genesis (Bereshith) 28. 15 Tanakh, Torah] "Be strong and of good courage, do not fear or be afraid...for the LORD your GOD HIMSELF goes with you. HE will not fail you or forsake you." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 31. 6 Tanakh, Torah] And regarding the HOLY WRITTEN WORD HE declares — "till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the Law till all is fulfilled." [Matthew 5. 18] 

Then, when the Holy City, the Bride, the LAMB'S Wife (Revelation 21:9) comes down out of Heaven, and the eternal ages begin, "there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the LAMB'S Book of Life." [Revelation 21. 27] As servants of the LORD MOST HIGH, we are confident that nothing HE said shall ever fail. Therefore, we love the LORD our GOD, walk in all HIS ways, keep HIS commands, hold fast to HIM and serve HIM will all our heart and soul out of love and gratitude. 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel , O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
As we bid farewell to Shabbos, may the MIGHTY GOD WHO separates the holy from the secular and mundane, forgive our sins and grant us a week of peace as we continue to learn HIS WORD and HIS WISDOM. The LORD is my PRAISE, my STRENGTH, my FORTRESS, my REFUGE — in days of affliction and at all times. 
Tov Shavua — Have a good week! 
Day 22 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
The route to wisdom is humility. 

MESSIAH YESHUA, THE ROCK 
"All drank the same spiritual drink, for they drank of that spiritual ROCK (Hebrew: T'SUR) that followed them, and that ROCK was CHRIST." [1 Corinthians 10. 4] "The nAME of the YEHOWAH I proclaim; give glory to ELOHEINU! The ROCK! — HIS deeds are perfect. Yes! all HIS ways are just; the faithful EL, never false. True and upright is HE." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 32. 3 - 4 Tanakh, Torah] 

When the children of Israel began their forty year wanderings through the wilderness, GOD OMNIPOTENT commanded Moses to strike the ROCK (T'SUR — "SMITTEN ROCK OF JUDGMENT") so thirst-quenching waters might be miraculously provided. "I will stand before you there on the rock at Horeb. Strike the rock and water will issue from it, and the people will drink." [Exodus (Shemot) 17. 6 Tanakh, Torah] This SMITTEN ROCK OF JUDGMENT is a beautiful type of MESSIAH YESHUA being smitten once on the cross producing life — giving forth the pure waters of salvation for us. 

At the end of the forty years Moses struck the ROCK OF PROVISION in disobedience to ETERNAL GOD'S command simply to "speak to the rock" for its cool refreshing water. "And Moses raised his hand and struck the rock (cela) twice with his rod." [Numbers (B'Midvar) 20. 11 Tanakh, Torah] This ROCK is a type of the risen, ascended ANOINTED SAVIOR WHO is seated at the Throne of Grace. Now, we as believers simply SPEAK to our LOVING MASTER in order to receive our daily, fresh, redeeming grace. 

Paul the Apostle, in his letter to the Corinthians, reminds us that the reason they received physical water was that their spiritual ROCK, YESHUA ha'MASHIACH, had been with them supplying their needs from the beginning to the end. How wondrously amazing to know that the ALL-SUFFICIENT ROCK is always with us. The LORD JESUS promised, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." [1 Corinthians 10. 4] 

We begin with the SUFFERING MESSIAH at the Cross, continue with HIM through this life; then, we travel with HIM right into heaven. "Though I walk through the valley of deaths deepest darkness, I fear no harm, for YOU are with me; YOUR ROD and YOUR STAFF — they comfort me." [Psalms (Tehillym) 23. 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim] Our ROCK, YESHUA ha’MASHIACH, is trustworthy and unwavering. "I adore YOU, O LORD, my ROCK (T'SUR — ROCK OF JUDGMENT), my FORTRESS, my RESCUER, my GOD, my ROCK (CELA — ROCK OF PROVISION), my STRENGTH in WHOM I seek refuge and in WHOM I put my trust; my SHIELD, my MIGHTY CHAMPION, the HORN of my salvation, my HAVEN, my HIGH TOWER. I will call upon the LORD WHO is worthy to be praised. I called on the LORD and was delivered from my enemies." [Psalms (Tehillym) 18. 2 - 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim] The LORD JESUS, our PERFECT FOUNDATION, the SOLID ROCK, is our GREATEST JOY and our HIGHEST PRAISE. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
O GOD, WHO alone is all good, WHOSE mercies fail not; WHOSE loving-kindnesses never cease, we have all our hope and trust in YOU. We bless YOU, our SALVATION and our HELP, our GOD WHOM thanksgiving and eternal praises are due. We are ever grateful that YOU dwell in us! 
Day 20 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

A clean conscience makes a soft pillow. 

SLICHOT — THINK & PRAY 
On this Sabbath of Repentance, O our GOD, open our hearts to its solemn call to turn from the vanities of life and consider our destiny in the light of YOUR ETERNAL TRUTH. Help us to see whether we have indeed hearkened to YOUR VOICE and have done justly, loved mercy and walked humbly before YOU, our MAKER. Or, whether we have been negligent in the fulfillment of our duties and have strayed from the path of moral strength and integrity. 

O RIGHTEOUS JUDGE OF THE WORLD, as we survey our life, we are filled with shame that we have fallen short of the purpose for which YOU did send us, and we have failed to use aright the numerous gifts which YOU have given us. Humbly we confess that our intentions and our deeds accuse us before the tribunal of our conscience and convict us in YOUR sight. 

O GREAT GOD OF HOLINESS, YOU know that we are but dust and in our weakness we often yield to selfish indulgences. Create in us a pure heart and renew a steadfast spirit within us. Strengthen us in our resolve to mend our ways. Let our struggle with error and sin lead us to a clearer realization of the Truth of YOUR HOLY WORD and to a firmer adherence to YOUR LAW OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. Help us to remove every misunderstanding between ourselves and our fellowmen. 

YOU, LORD GOD OF HOSTS alone know when the day shall dawn in which the light of YOUR truth, brighter than that of the visible sun, shall encircle the whole earth. But, surely that great day so fervently prayed for shall come, as surely as none of YOUR LIFE-GIVING WORDS return empty, but shall accomplish that for which YOU did send them. O GOD, YOU are plenteous in mercy and forgiveness, please establish peace and harmony in our souls that we may be truly at one with YOU. 

Then joy shall thrill all hearts and from one end of the earth to the other and the gladsome cry shall echo: "Hear, O Israel , hear all mankind, the ETERNAL our GOD, the ETERNAL is ONE." Then myriads will make pilgrimage to YOUR HOUSE which shall be called the "HOUSE OF PRAYER" and from their lips shall sound in spiritual joy: "LORD, open for us the gates of YOUR TRUTH. Selah Lift up your heads, O gates, O you gates! Be lifted up, you everlasting doors! So the KING OF GLORY may come in! WHO is the KING OF GLORY? — the LORD OF HOSTS, mighty and valiant, the LORD, valiant in battle. O gates, lift up your heads! Lift them up, you everlasting doors, so the KING OF GLORY may come in! WHO is the KING OF GLORY? — the LORD OF HOSTS, HE is the KING OF GLORY! Selah" [Psalms (Tehillym) 24. 7 - 10 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

May we ever thank YOU, our MAJESTIC LORD GOD, for sending YESHUA ha'MASHIACH to be our only LOVING REDEEMER. And, may we ever revere, glorify and honour YOUR HOLY EXALTED NAME with praise. We humbly bow to CHRIST JESUS OF NAZARETH, our WONDERFUL LORD, SAVIOR & REDEEMER. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Welcome Sabbath – Queen of the week! Praised are YOU, YEHOWAH, our GOD, SOVEREIGN of the Universe, WHO makes us holy with YOUR mitzvoth and favors us with the Holy Shabbat, lovingly and graciously given to us, a memorial of the act of creation, first of the holy assemblies. 
Slichot begins the Saturday night before Rosh ha’Shana. This is a special series of prayers that invoke GOD’S mercy. If Rosh ha’Shana falls at the beginning of the week, then Slichot begins on the Saturday night of the previous week. (Sefardim begin saying Slichot on Rosh Chodesh Elul.) 
After the sin of the Golden Calf, Moses asked GOD to explain HIS system for relating with the world. GOD’S answer, known as the 13 Attributes of Mercy forms the essence of the Slichot prayers. The 13 Attributes speak of GOD’S patience. The same God Who created us with a clean slate and a world of opportunity, gives us another opportunity if we’ve misused the first one. 
Slichot should be said with a minyan (the quorum of 10 Jewish male adults) — however, if this is not possible, then it should still be said alone, omitting the parts in Aramaic and the 13 Attributes of Mercy. 
The most important feature of Elul (the preparation month) is to make a plan for your life because the day will come when each of us will stand before the ALMIGHTY to ask for another year to serve HIM, and we will want to know what it is we are asking for. 
Enjoy the peace and harmony of Shabbat! 

This Rosh haShana ushers in Shmita, the holy Sabbatical Year in the Land of Israel . Just as the people of Israel rest every week on Shabbat, the Land of Israel will rest for the entire year. "...the seventh year shall be a complete rest for the Land." [Leviticus 25.4] 
L'Shanah Tova U'Metukah — We wish you and your families a happy and healthy year — May your name be inscribed in the BOOK OF LIFE! 
Day 25 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
Fear is the father of courage, the grandfather of humility, and the patriarch of prayer. 

TENT MAKER 
"Speak to the Israelite people and instruct them to make for themselves fringes on the corners of their garments throughout the ages; let them attach a cord of blue to the fringe at each corner. That shall be your fringe; look at it and recall all the commandments of the LORD and observe them, so that you do not follow your heart and eyes in your lustful urge. Thus you shall be reminded to observe all MY commandments and to be holy to your GOD." [Numbers (B'Midvar) 15. 38 - 40 Tanakh, Torah] 

Jewish men use the Tallith (prayer shawl) to wrap themselves in during their daily prayers and devotions. This is known as their "tent of prayer." The Tallith and the fringe in each of its four corners is artistically made. The fringe itself has a purpose in every strand, wrapping, and knot. It is made by using eight strands precisely wrapped plus the five knots at various positions to total 613, which is the exact number of commandments in the TORAH. The LORD GOD instructed the Israelite men to look at the fringe (Hebrew: tsitzith) and remember (perform, obey, do, carry out) HIS commandments. 

In HIS instructions, OMNIPOTENT GOD also required the children of Israel to "put a cord of blue" in the fringe. This blue cord entwined in the tsitzith (fringe, tassels, hem) is the heavenly colour to remind them of the power and glory of the great GOD OF ISRAEL. 

Paul was a tent maker working the same trade as Aquila and his wife Priscilla. [Acts 18. 2 - 3] The occupation of a "tent maker" is that of making of the "Tallith" or "prayer shawls." In Paul's time, people lived in houses, not tents. The Bedouins, however, did live in tents, but they made their own from the animals hides of their own flocks. "Simon the Tanner, whose house was by the sea" was a familiar individual, and he did work with hides, leather and furs. [Acts 10. 6] 

Paul tells of his credentials: "Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel , of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews" [Philippians 3. 4]; and was schooled concerning the Law, "at the feet of Gamaliel taught according to the strictness of our fathers' Law, and was zealous toward GOD." [Acts 22. 3] Paul added that he spent his youth in Jerusalem , where he lived, "according to the strictest sect of our religion I lived a Pharisee." [Acts 26. 4 - 5] Thus, Paul had fully absorbed all knowledge of the Law, the customs and manners of the Jewish people' thus, he would have legitimate expertise and knowledge for the making of this very special item. The makings of the "tallith" was a specifically gifted talent, as Jewish men were required to wear this particular garment by the ALMIGHTY ONE HIMSELF. 

Regarding the Tallith — MESSIAH YESHUA rebuked the religious leaders for "enlarging the borders of their prayer garments (Tallith/Prayer Shawl) to be seen of men." [Matthew 23. 5] "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness. Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness." [Matthew 23. 27 - 28] 

In fact, CHRISTians today even have reminders to look at and remember GOD'S commandments (plaques, jewelry of crosses, paintings, etc.). Man looks on the outward appearance and judges, but that is not where true righteousness is found. The HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL, on the other hand, sees the attitude of the heart and that is what determines the approval or disapproval of the LORD and the individual's final reward! For the KING OF GLORY is our RIGHTEOUSNESS. Therefore, guard your heart and glorify CREATOR GOD by living a life as one who overcomes by the "blood of the LAMB" and by the "word of your testimony." [Revelation 12. 11] May the WORD OF GOD be bound in your hearts and the CONTROLLER of your lives! 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel , O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
The LORD'S promise to Zion — "As you behold, you will glow; your heart will throb and thrill — for the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you and the riches of nations shall flow to you. Whereas you have been forsaken, rejected and hated, with none passing through, I will make you a pride everlasting, a joy for age after age." [Isaiah/Yeshayah 60. 5, 15 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 
Day 18 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

Silence is the only successful substitute for brains. [Maurice Samuel] 

DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY 
"When the HELPER comes, WHOM I shall send to you from the FATHER, the SPIRIT OF TRUTH WHO proceeds from the FATHER, HE will testify of ME." [John 15. 26] 

There is only One GOD, yet three PERSONS: GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON, GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT — each with HIS own distinct relation to mankind; each equally, fully, and eternally GOD. Although these truths are implicit throughout the NEW COVENANT, the Doctrine of the Trinity is seldom, if ever, presented explicitly as a formal doctrine. 

Many times SUPREME CREATOR called HIMSELF "the GOD of Abraham, the GOD of Isaac, and the GOD of Jacob." HE seemed to love to reveal HIMSELF through this NAME, and this is the revelation of the FATHER, SON and HOLY SPIRIT. Abram means "the exalted father" who became Abraham, "the father of a multitude." Isaac means "laughter" — he was the promised son, the joy of his exalted father, Abram. Jacob is known as the "heel grabber or supplanter" — the one who became Israel — "a prince with GOD" and this speaks of the work of the HOLY SPIRIT. 

There are several passages in the NEW COVENANT where all THREE PERSONS of the GOD-head are mentioned in the same context, and each one deals with a significant aspect of the CHRISTian life. First, is the provision of salvation, "the blood of CHRIST, WHO through the ETERNAL SPIRIT offered HIMSELF without spot to GOD." [Hebrews 9. 14] 

Regeneration follows salvation. "And because you are sons, GOD has sent forth the SPIRIT of HIS SON into your hearts, crying — ABBA FATHER." [Galatians 4. 6] Salvation and regeneration are then publicly testified in baptism "in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT." [Matthew 28. 19] 

The believer's prominent resource is prayer and this also involves all THREE PERSONS. "For through MESSIAH we both have access by one SPIRIT unto the FATHER." [Ephesians 2. 18] The believer must also continue to learn of MESSIAH YESHUA, and to bear witness of HIM. "The HOLY SPIRIT, WHOM the FATHER will send in MY NAME (YESHUA), HE shall teach you all things. The SPIRIT OF TRUTH, which proceeds from the FATHER, HE shall testify of ME; and you also shall bear witness because you have been with ME from the beginning." [John 14. 26 - 27] 

We have eternal assurance in TRIUNE GOD’S promise: "The grace of the LORD MESSIAH YESHUA and the love of GOD, and the communion of the HOLY SPIRIT be with you all. Amen!" [2 Corinthians 13. 14] All power, praise, honor and glory to the THREE-IN-ONE! 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Psalms/Tehillym 83.1-5 says — GOD, do not be silent; do not be distant; do not be quiet, O GOD! For YOUR enemies rage, those who hate YOU exalt themselves. They plot craftily against YOUR people, take counsel against YOUR treasured ones. They say — Let us wipe them out as a nation; Israel 's name will be mentioned no more. — Yet we are confident that, HE WHO keeps Israel neither slumbers or sleeps! Truly, there is none like YOU, O LORD GOD. YOU are glorious in holiness, revered in worship, wondrous in all YOUR works! There is none like YOU, infinite is YOUR power, so is YOUR love. 
Day 19 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
GOD does not have to overturn the laws of nature or create something that never before existed. On the contrary, miracles are part of God's architectural plan. On the sixth day, as God was about to complete His creation, He added supernatural events, making miracles part of nature. Nature itself is a miracle in which God's hand is constantly manifest. 

PITCH YOUR STANDARD 
"The Israelites shall camp each with his standard, under the banners of their father's house; they shall camp around the Tabernacle of Meeting at a distance." [Numbers (B’Midvar) 2. 2 Tanakh, Torah] 

The use of flags, standards, or ensigns to represent nations or other groups is first referenced here in connection with the standards that were pitched by the camp of each of the twelve tribes of Israel during their time of marching through the wilderness. [Numbers/B’Midvar 1. 52 – 2. 34] 

On the east side was the standard of the forces of Judah, Issachar and Zebulun — the Lion (KING) — this camp was first to go forth. 
The second standard — the Man (SON OF MAN) — was on the south side of the Tabernacle which included Reuben, Simeon, Gad. 
On the west the standard was the camps of Ephraim, Manasseh, and Benjamin — the Ox (SERVANT). 
And, the north standard — the Eagle (SON OF GOD) — was the tribes of Dan, Asher and Naphtali. The whole company of the Levites was in the midst of the camps; as they camp, so they moved out everyone in his place by their standards. 

Those who follow YESHUA also have a standard to live under — that STANDARD (BANNER OF LOVE) over us is the very character of the ONE WHO is the "captain of their salvation." [Hebrews 2. 10] HIS GUIDE BOOK for us is the WRITTEN WORD OF GOD, which is crucially essential information "so that you may know the way by which you must go, for you have not passed this way before." [Joshua/Yehoshua 3. 4] It persuades us to "endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier." [2 Timothy 2. 3 - 4] Through faith and a good conscience you can wage the good warfare and fight the good fight of faith. 

As faithful followers of the LORD YESHUA ha’MASHIACH, our GREAT STANDARD BEARER, we must continually seek to "know the mind of the Lord" [1 Corinthians 2. 16], that HE may instruct us, and to keep ourselves pure "just as HE is pure." [1 John 3. 3] And, in all things remember that HE "suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow HIS steps." [1 Peter 2. 21] 

With GOD WHO shows mercy, our goal is to be able to someday say, as Paul could say, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved HIS appearing." [2 Timothy 4. 7 - 8] Peter, as well, reminds us that "when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away." [1 Peter 5. 4] 

We are partakers of YESHUA, if we hold onto HIM, the ONE WHO is the beginning of our confidence (faithfulness, certainty) and remain steadfast to HIM to the end. Our need is to love the EVER-LIVING LORD GOD with all our heart and follow HIS commands, and set our standards according to HIS perfect will. To GOD, the ETERNAL ONE be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
We thank YOU, Great & MIGHTY GOD for by YOUR mercies and grace to us. Keep us ever grateful and grant us YOUR perfect rest, guidance, and wisdom in this world is our prayer, Amen 
May God, Whose grace is irresistible and all sufficient, be glorified. 
This is the 17th Day of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

The Jew is the emblem of eternity. He whom neither slaughter nor torture over thousands of years could destroy...he who was the first to produce the oracles of GOD, he who has been for so long the guardian of prophecy, and transmitted it to the rest of the world — such a nation cannot be destroyed. The Jew is everlasting as eternity itself. [-Leo Tolstoy] 

ONE BODY IN MESSIAH 
"For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is MESSIAH YESHUA. For by one SPIRIT we were all baptized into one body — whether Jew or Gentile, whether slaves or free — and have all been made to drink into one SPIRIT." [1 Corinthians 12. 12 - 13] 

"For you are all sons of GOD through faith in YESHUA. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in MESSIAH YESHUA." [Galatians 3. 26, 28] 

The statement "there is neither Jew nor Greek...neither male nor female...all are one in JESUS" relates back to Faith and indicates that all races, classes, and both sexes are equal in rights and privileges relative to gospel benefits, that ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER does not recognize one above the other — all are one body in YESHUA ha'MASHIACH. 

However, this same verse does tell that within the body of MESSIAH there is both Jew and Gentile, master and slave, male and female. One does not change his ancestry, descent, position in life, or sex by receiving the MESSIAH into their heart. Nothing can divest a Jew of his physical identity. 

One who is not Jewish who has accepted the LORD JESUS, remains a Gentile but now a believer. A Jew, accepting the LORD YESHUA, remains a Jew but now a believer. Both Jew and Gentile keep their earthly distinctions even as bond and free, male and female keep theirs. Their unity is in the SPIRIT — they are one in MESSIAH the KING by Faith. 

"For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the SPIRIT, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from GOD." [Romans 2. 28 - 29] 

This passage is found in a Jewish Context in the book of Romans. Paul was not speaking to the Gentiles here but to Jews who were trusting in the fact that they were Jews, "Indeed you are called a Jew, and rest on the Law, and make your boast in GOD." [Romans 2. 17] Here, Paul is describing the True Jew who is one not only outwardly, but inwardly. Paul does not boast in his religion or the fact he is a Jew — there is no pride of race or grace in MESSIAH YESHUA — but he counts all that as loss and his trust now is in the Lord Jesus as we find in the words of Paul again: 

"For we are the circumcision, who worship GOD in the spirit, rejoice in CHRIST JESUS, and have no CONFIDENCE IN THE flesh, though I also might have confidence in the flesh. If anyone else thinks he may have confidence in the flesh, I more so." Then Paul explains what it is about the "flesh" in which he could trust: "Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews; concerning the Law, a Pharisee; concerning zeal, persecuting the church; concerning the righteousness which is in the Law, blameless." 

Now Paul is counting as unnecessary and vain all those things of the flesh in which he could have trusted: "But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for CHRIST (MESSIAH YESHUA). Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of CHRIST JESUS my LORD, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain CHRIST and be found in HIM, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from GOD by faith." [Philippians 3. 3 - 9] Thus, our spiritual duties must be our own hearts actions, not boasting in our human bloodline, but in the BELOVED MESSIAH alone. 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel , O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
As Sabbath comes to a close, our prayer is that GOD, WHO'S PRESENCE dwells within us, bless you abundantly. May peace abundant descend from heaven with life for us and to all Israel , Amen 
Watch and pray, the LORD Messiah YESHUA is coming soon to set up HIS Kingdom. The descendants of HIS servants shall inherit it, and those who love HIS NAME shall dwell in it. The LORD will be a SHELTER for HIS people, and the STRENGTH of the children of Israel , and they shall all know HIM. 
May some of Sabbath’s sweetness go with you throughout the coming week. 
Day 15 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on your front door forever. 

SAVED FROM FIRE 
"From the depths of Sheol the mightiest of warriors speak to him and his allies; the uncircumcised, the slain by the sword, have gone down and lie there — they made a bed for her among the slain, with all her masses; their graves are round about her. They are all uncircumcised, slain by the sword. Though their terror was once spread over the land of the living, they bear their shame with those who have gone into the Pit; they are placed among the slain." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 32. 21, 25 Tanakh, Nevi’im] 

It is a tragic mistake to ignore the subject of Hell, Sheol, the Pit, Hades — all the names of the literal place for punishment of the wicked. Isaiah gives us a striking explicit picture of those in earlier ages who are now in Hades, awaiting the final judgment. Religion, in itself with its complex concepts and rituals, will not keep one from hell where "the corpses of the men who rebelled against ME: Their worms shall not die, nor their fire be quenched; they shall be a horror to all flesh." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 66. 24 Tanakh, Nevi’im; also see Mark 9. 43 - 48] 

Having a religion or form of righteousness, will never save a person. Paul spoke of those who have a form of religion that does not save: "But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people TURN AWAY! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was." [2 Timothy 3. 1 - 9] 

"Although they knew God, they did not glorify HIM as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible GoD into an image made like corruptible man…and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Therefore GOD also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of GOD for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the CREATOR." [Romans 1. 21 - 25] 

We are admonished, "If you refrained from rescuing those taken off to death, those condemned to slaughter — if you say — We knew nothing of it — surely HE WHO fathoms hearts will discern the truth, HE WHO watches over your life will know it, and HE will pay each man as he deserves." [Proverbs (Mishle) 24. 11 – 12 Tanakh, Kethuvim] Also, "keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our LORD JESUS CHRIST unto eternal life. And on some have compassion, making a distinction; but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh." [Jude 21 - 23] 

The LorD YESHUA warned "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. BEWARE of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits." [Matthew 7. 13 - 15] Only those who worship the CREATOR, the TRUE & LIVING GOD, who receive the LORD MessiaH YESHUA as their personal SavioR from sin, will be saved. Believe and accept HIS free gift of salvation with seeing hearts, hearing souls, and obedient lives. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel , O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
May our bearing toward our neighbors, our faithfulness in every sphere of duty, our compassion for the suffering and our patience under trial show that HE WHOSE Law we obey is indeed the MIGHTY GOD of all goodness, the FATHER of all men, that to serve HIM is perfect freedom and to worship HIM the soul's purest happiness. 
Day 16 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
Being in the hands of ALMIGHTY GOD is the best way to ensure blessings from Above by being guided by the wisdom of the TORAH. 

WHATEVER HE PLEASES 
"Our GOD is in Heaven; and all that HE wills HE accomplishes." [Psalms (Tehillym) 115. 3 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

Often, we question the CREATOR’S actions, but HE is never obligated to explain to us HIS reasons. It is enough to know that it pleases HIM, for whatever HE does is right and for our best and HIS glory. 

If one were to ask why GOD created the universe, we simply and correct answer that it was for HIS "pleasure they were and are created!" [Revelation 4. 11] "Whatever the LORD desires HE does in heaven and in earth, in the seas and all depths." [Psalms (Tehillym) 135. 6 Tanakh, Kethuvim] We also were created for HIS pleasure, therefore HE does not have to give account to us for HIS actions; and assuredly, HE does all things well. 

You may ask, why HE allowed HIS ONLY-BEGOTTEN SON to suffer and die on the cross. The answer is found in HOLY SCRIPTURE, for although "HE had done no violence, nor was any deceit in HIS mouth. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise HIM" and "to make HIS soul an offering for sin" knowing that ultimately "the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in HIS hand." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 53. 9 - 10 Tanakh, Nevi’im] 

We may never be able to understand why LORD GOD, the ALL-POWERFUL SOVEREIGN CREATOR did this, especially for sinners such as you and I, but we don’t have to understand. "It pleased GOD through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe." [1 Corinthians 1. 21] Take note, the Text clearly established that it is for those who BELIEVE, not to them that understand. 

Yehowah, the SELF-EXISTING ONE WHO has perfect reasons for everything HE does, and we shall understand it all in eternity. "We know that when HE is revealed, we shall be like HIM, for we shall see HIM as HE is." [1 John 3. 2] 

Meanwhile, along with Paul the Apostle, we are to always be thankful that "it pleased GOD, WHO separated me from my mother's womb and called me through HIS grace, to reveal HIS SON in me." [Galatians 1. 15 - 16] In the same way, HE has, beyond my comprehension, "predestined us to adoption as sons by JESUS CHRIST to HIMSELF, according to the good pleasure of HIS will, to the praise of the glory of HIS grace, by which HE made us accepted in the BELOVED." [Ephesians 1. 5 – 6] 

So for the time being, it is enough for us, HIS people, to be like our TEACHER — and as HIS servant, to be like our MASTER [Matthew 10. 25], confidently standing fast in HIS perfect plan. 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Welcome Sabbath! May yours be a Yom She’kulo Shabbat (a day which is all Sabbath). 
Praise to ALMIGHTY CREATOR GOD! We praise and bless you O GOD for lovingly and graciously giving YOUR Holy Shabbat, the imagery of beauty and radiance testifying to the tremendous affection that the Sabbath is enjoyed among YOUR people in YOUR presence. 
Day 14 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
A miracle cannot prove what is impossible; it is helpful only as confirmation of what is possible with CREATOR GOD. 

PATHS OF THE LORD 
"All the LORD'S paths are mercy, steadfast love and truth for those who keep the decrees of HIS Covenant and HIS Testimonies." [Psalms (Tehillym) 25. 10 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

One of the great promises in HOLY SCRIPTURE is that ALMIGHTY GOD will lead those who obediently follow HIS will and honour HIS BLESSED WORD. "In all your ways acknowledge HIM and HE will direct your paths and make them smooth." [Proverbs (Mishle) 3. 6 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

These paths have experienced the mercy of our LOVING CREATOR and confirm HIS truth, if we obey HIS WORD — that is, if we keep HIS Covenant of Grace and believe the promise of HIS Testimonies. They are paths leading to life eternal. "YOU will teach me the path of life. In YOUR presence is perfect joy; delights are ever in YOUR right hand." [Psalms (Tehillym) 16. 11 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The paths which the ALL-WISE MASTER directs us to may seem unusual, dark, discouraging or dangerous, but we have HIS promises that they lead to joy and peace and HIS great light. "The path of the righteous is like the radiant sunlight, ever brightening until noon." [Proverbs (Mishle) 4. 18 Tanakh, Kethuvim] The pathway leads to true wisdom of the HOLY ONE which offers "pleasant ways, and all her paths, peaceful." [Proverbs (Mishle) 3. 17 Tanakh, Kethuvim] "HE guides me in the paths of righteousness as befits HIS NAME." [Psalms (Tehillym) 23. 3 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The paths may be by still waters or through valleys of deepest darkness, but GOD'S goodness and mercy follows us in these paths, and finally leads us Home to be forever with the LORD. 

When troubles come our way, if we have difficulty discerning the right path to follow, still OMNIPOTENT LORD GOD is directing our every step, we can find guidance in HIS PRECIOUS HOLY WORD, for "YOUR WORD is a LAMP to my feet, a LIGHT for my path." [Psalms (Tehillym) 119. 115 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

In bold confidence and assurance, we are always able to pray, "Lead me in the path of YOUR commandments; for that is my concern and my delight." [Psalms (Tehillym) 119. 35 Tanakh, Kethuvim] "Show me YOUR way, O LORD, and lead me on a path, because of my watchful foes." [Psalms (Tehillym) 27. 11 Tanakh, Kethuvim] All who seek HIM early and love HIS Eternal Law are definitely rich, extremely blessed, and will have a fullness of indescribable joy. 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
I will worship and praise YOU, my GOD, O KING; and I will bless YOUR NAME forever and ever. Great is the LORD, and highly to be praised; and HIS greatness is unsearchable. 
Day 13 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

Re: Delrifkah: HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
Intelligence makes a great first impression. 

A FAITHFUL PROVERB 
"This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, we shall also live with HIM. If we endure, we shall also reign with HIM. If we deny HIM, HE also will deny us. If we are faithless, HE remains faithful; HE cannot deny HIMSELF." [2+Timothy 2. 11 - 13] 

How often we find the phrase "if, then, will, shall" showing the choice is always ours. If we be dead with CHRIST JESUS, then we shall also live with HIM, "And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, HE has made alive together with HIM, having forgiven you all trespasses." [Colossians 2. 13] Our FAITHFUL HIGH PRIEST has made atonement for us, and we shall be forgiven for all the things that we have done in which we have trespassed. "The priest shall make expiation on his behalf before the LORD, and he shall be forgiven for whatever he may have done to draw blame thereby." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 5. 26 Tanakh, Torah- Leviticus 6:7 KJV] 

If we are willing to endure suffering, then we will also reign with our LORD — "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears MY voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with ME. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with ME on MY throne, as I also overcame and sat down with MY FATHER on HIS Throne." [Revelation 3. 20 - 21] "If anyone loves ME, he will keep MY WORD; and MY FATHER will love him, and WE will come to him and make OUR home with him." [John 14. 23] 

If we deny the LorD YESHUA, HE will also deny us — "Therefore whoever confesses ME before men, him I will also confess before MY FATHER WHO is in heaven. But whoever denies ME before men, him I will also deny before MY FATHER WHO is in heaven." [Matthew 10. 32 - 33] "He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the BOOK OF LIFE; but I will confess his name before MY FATHER and before HIS angels." [Revelation 3. 5] 

And, if we are treacherously unfaithful or do not believe, KING YESHUA remains faithful still. HIS promises are sure whether they be warnings of judgments or promises of blessings. The SOVEREIGN OF THE UNIVERSE promised Joshua: "No one shall be able to resist you as long as you live. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you. Be strong and of good courage, for you shall apportion to this people the land that I swore to their fathers to assign to them. But you must be very strong and courageous to observe faithfully all the Law and Teachings that MY servant Moses commanded you. Do not deviate from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful and prosper wherever you go." [Joshua (Yehoshua) 1. 5 - 7 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Because of GOD'S faithfulness, we can be sure that HIS sayings are faithful and HE cannot deny HIMSELF. Our GREAT & MIGHTY GOD is loving, faithful. and true! May we continually bow down and worship HIM! 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
MOST HOLY ONE, YOU are blessed beyond all hymns, praises and consolations that may be uttered in this world. My soul desires YOU in the night. Yes, by my spirit within me I will seek YOU early; for when YOUR judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. Therefore, in the shadow of YOUR wings I will rejoice. HalleluYAH! Amen! 
Day 12 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
The key to the treasures of the ETERNAL ONE is reverence. 

FOREVER ENDURES 
"The LORD abides (endures) forever." [Psalms (Tehillym) 9. 7 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

This world and the heavens are going to all pass away completely as everything decays and dies — "they will perish…grow old like a garment." [Hebrews 1. 11] But GOD, the ALMIGHTY CREATOR, is eternal! "May the glory of the LORD endure forever; may the LORD rejoice in HIS works." [Psalms (Tehillym) 104. 31 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The great name of the KING OF GLORY will never change. "May HIS NAME be eternal; while the sun lasts, may HIS NAME endure. Men shall be blessed in HIM; all nations shall call HIM blessed." [Psalms (Tehillym) 72. 17 Tanakh, Kethuvim] Likewise, HIS righteousness and character is everlasting, "Wealth and riches are in HIS House, and HIS righteousness lasts forever. HE is gracious, compassionate, generous and righteous." [Psalms (Tehillym) 112. 3 - 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim] Psalms 136 declares the MIGHTY ONE'S ever-enduring mercies and concludes with wonderful assurances and promises. [Psalms (Tehillym) 136. 26 Tanakh, Kethuvim] Since the HOLY ONE'S perfect righteousness and everlasting great mercy will last forever, we should continually thank and praise HIM with every breath in our being. "O, give thanks and praise to the GOD OF HEAVEN! HIS mercy and steadfast love is forever." 

The wondrous, life-giving WORD OF GOD will also endure. This is confirmed in both OLD & NEW COVENANTS — "The LORD exists forever; YOUR WORD stands firm in heaven. YOUR faithfulness is for all generations; YOU have established the earth, and it stands." [Psalms (Tehillym) 119. 89 - 90 Tanakh, Kethuvim] "All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls away, but the WORD OF THE LORD endures forever." [1 Peter 1. 24 - 25] 

GOD'S love, so rich and pure, will always endure, eternity will be filled with HIS great love. "For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of GOD which is in CHRIST JESUS our LORD." [Romans 8. 38 - 39] 

We know for certainty that we shall also live forever, because the HOLY ONE is forever. "His (David's) seed shall continue forever, his throne, as the sun before ME; as the moon, established forever, an enduring witness in the sky. Selah" [Psalms (Tehillym) 89. 36 - 37 Tanakh, Kethuvim] "The world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of GOD abides forever." [1 John 2. 17] O the riches we, who serve the LORD OF GLORY, have in abundance awaiting us; and the great joy in serving and loving HIM even now. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Return to the HOLY ONE OF JACOB. In returning to HIM you will find rest and be saved and receive quietness, confidence and strength. So, let us celebrate the ties of love and faith that bind us in the LORD YESHUA ha'MASHIACH, the GREAT GOD of our salvation. 
Day 11 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
As easy as it may appear, the path of least resistance may be the very one to avoid. 

REDEEMING THE TIME 
"There remains therefore a rest to the people of GOD." [Hebrews 4. 9] 

For those who labor, this has been a long time favorite verse. We grow tired of work, and weary even in the LORD'S work. . . but we continue on in faithful stewardship for the needs are so great in harvesting souls that we dare not stop. Thus praying — "Teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom." [Psalms (Tehillym) 90. 12 Tanakh, Kethuvim] "Oh, that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!" [Deuteronomy/Devarim 32. 29] 

The LORD GOD knew HIS people would need rest, so HE ordained a weekly day of rest, Sabbath. In fact, the only reason HE took six days to do the work of creation was to set the proper pattern for man's six-day work week. [Exodus/Shemot 20. 8 - 11] MESSIAH YESHUA, the LORD OF GLORY, indicated that it is still "lawful to do well on Sabbath days" [Matthew 12. 12]; and the SCRIPTURES command us to always "walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time." [Colossians 4. 5] And to "walk circumspectly (carefully, watchfully), not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil." [Ephesians 5. 15 - 16] 

The word for "rest" is actually the special word for Sabbath rest (Shabbath-Shabbathown). The new covenant indicates that the weekly rest day, like all the others in the Ten Commandments, is still a DIVINE principle in the CHRISTian dispensation, and violating it is to our detriment. It also refers, in context, to the rest we find in the LORD YESHUA ha’MASHIACH. "For he that is entered into HIS rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as GOD did from HIS." [Hebrews 4. 10] 

There is a most comforting application for our future life — "Blessed are the dead that die in the LORD from now on: Yes! says the SPIRIT, that they may rest from their labors; and their works follow them." [Revelation 14. 13] But for now, even when it is hard to find time for physical rest, we find perfect peaceful rest for our souls in the LORD JESUS CHRIST. Without a doubt, HE is our PERFECT PEACE & REST. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel , O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Have a peaceful, enriching day in which you find favor of the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL, and with an objective to bless others. May your life be blessed with grace and peace through YESHUA THE ANOINTED ONE. Amen 
This is the 10th Day of Repentance. 


May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, and enough hope to make you happy. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
Smart is when you believe only half of what you hear. Brilliant is when you know which half to believe. 

SIN & CONFESSION 
"All unrighteousness is sin." [1 John 5. 17] 

People come up with different definitions as to what sin is, and the most common definition is "missing the mark" or a "failure to live up to an expected standard." However, this definition fails to take into account that when the mark is missed, something is hit. 

The Apostle John simply defined sin as "lawlessness" and strongly advises believers not to do such things. John then goes on to inform us what we are to do if we do sin. "My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the FATHER, JESUS CHRIST THE RIGHTEOUS. And HE HIMSELF is the PROPITIATION for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world. Now by this we know that we know HIM, if we keep HIS commandments." [1 John 2. 1 - 3] 

"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." [1 John 1. 8] "If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His worD is not in us." [1 John 1. 10] Sin is a choice, we have the potential to obey or disobey. And it is possible for a believer to loose his rewards. "Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward. Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of CHRIST does not have GOD." [2 John 1. 8 - 9] "Are you so foolish? Having begun in the SPIRIT, are you now being made perfect by the flesh? Have you suffered so many things in vain?" [Galatians 3. 3 - 4] "Whoever endures TO THE END shall be saved." [Matthew 10. 22; 24. 13] 

"Whoever abides in HIM does not sin." [1 John 3. 6] Do not play games with your soul. Don't be deceived by your own emotions, images or ideas of what you think the ETERNAL LORD GOD means — Read what HE says; Accept what HE commands; then Prepare yourself to know HIM personally and fully (trust and obey). "Awake to righteousness, and do not sin." [1 Corinthians 15. 34] 

"If we walk in the light as HE is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of JESUS CHRIST HIS SON cleanses us from all sin. If we confess our sins, HE is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." [1 John 1. 7, 9] Hold on to the ENDURING ONE, HE is faithful to save. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel! 
Most blessed are YOU, O GOD, YOU are hidden from the eyes of all the living and are beyond the comprehension of all creatures. The mind of genius cannot comprehend more than a broken fragment of YOUR glory. The tongues of poets and sages falter as they seek to express YOUR incomparable wisdom and splendor. Yet though YOUR greatness surpasses our understanding, we feel YOUR nearness and are overcome with wonder and with awe as we behold the signs of YOUR soon-coming. 
May the grace of our LORD YESHUA ha'MASHIACH be with your spirit as you prepare to stand before the WONDROUS KING. 
Day 9 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
Light travels faster than sound; that is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak. 

NO OTHER FOUNDATION 
"For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is JESUS CHRIST." [1 Corinthians 3. 11] 

The LORD YESHUA ha’MASHIACH is the only sure and lasting foundation. This is a true fact either for the CHRISTian organization or for the individual follower of the GIVER OF LIFE. There is no other foundation that will or can endure in the days ahead when "each one's work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one's work, of what sort it is. If anyone's work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone's work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire." [1 Corinthians 3. 13 - 15] 

Therefore it is vital to build on the FOUNDATION that YESHUA HIMSELF has laid. This is laid in three lessons, each of which is essential for its stability. 
First: It is crucially imperative that we acknowledge and confess that "of old YOU laid the foundation of the earth; the heavens are the work of YOUR hands...They will perish, but YOU remain; and they will all wear out like a garment; like a cloak YOU change them, and they will be changed. But YOU are the same, and YOUR years never end." [Psalms (Tehillym) 102. 25 Tanakh, Kethuvim; Hebrews 1. 10 - 12] GOD is the MASTER CREATOR of all things, and LORD over all. EL is YEHOWAH! 

Second: We must recognize and admit that we have been redeemed "with the precious blood of CHRIST" and that "HE indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world!" [1 Peter 1. 19 - 20] "When the fullness of the time had come, GOD sent forth HIS SON, born of a woman, born under the Law, to redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons." [Galatians 4. 4 - 5] 

Third: There is the WORD OF GOD, which is foundational to everything beyond creation and redemption. "Be doers of the WORD, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves." [James 1. 22] "Whoever comes to ME, and hears MY sayings and DOES them, I will show you whom he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was FOUNDED ON THE ROCK." [Luke 5. 47 - 48] 

The LORD YESHUA is the TRUE FOUNDATION, for HE HIMSELF laid every SURE FOUNDATION. HE created all things, HIS precious shed blood is the price to redeem all things, and HIS HOLY LIFE-GIVING WORD, by HIS HOLY SPIRIT, reveals all things needed to build a beautiful, fruitful CHRIST-like life of ministry. "Having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF being the CHIEF CORNERSTONE, in WHOM the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a Holy Temple in the LORD." [Ephesians 2. 20 - 21] 

There is no other foundation that can or will last, and "if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?" [Psalms (Tehillym) 11. 3 Tanakh, Kethuvim] "O HOPE of Israel ! O LORD! All who forsake YOU shall be put to shame, Those in the land who turn from YOU shall be doomed men, inscribed in the earth, for they have forsaken the LORD, the FOUNTAIN of Living Waters." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 17. 13 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Even now, put your trust in the LORD JESUS, HE is the "EXCLUSIVE HOPE" of Israel and the nations. 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
We bid farewell to Sabbath by sing the song in the Havdallah ritual that states, “the Prophet Elijah, the Tishbite from Gilead , may he come to us soon with the SON OF DAVID, the MESSIAH” — the GREATEST ONE that we fix our gaze on. We also pray that GOD, WHO separates the holy from the secular, forgive our sins, guide our life and open our mouth to declare HIS praises continually. Unto YOU alone, O LORD GOD do we turn; for YOU alone abide deep in the solitude of our hearts. May we ever trust in YOU, HEAVENLY FATHER, and be unafraid in the face of the inscrutable (unfathomable, immeasurable, unknowable, unimaginable) years ahead, and see that everything happens for the best. Because of YOU LORD, there is perfect peace in our hearts at the nearness of YOU. 
Have a joyous week! 
Day 8 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

Re: Delrifkah: HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY.

Post  Admin on Sat 22 Aug 2015, 11:14 pm

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
To prevent irritating others, be as vague as possible, but do it with enthusiasm. 

GLORIFIED VISION 
"In the midst of the seven lamp-stands ONE like the SON OF MAN, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band." [Revelation 1. 13] 

This is a sanctuary scene, a priestly scene, as viewed in the OLD COVENANT Tabernacle and Temple . The ANCIENT OF DAYS is seen inspecting the Church (HIS people) just as Aaron inspected the candlestick in the Holy Place — noticing the oil supply, the condition of the wicks, and snuffing the carbon, if necessary, so the lights would burn bright. The lamp-stands represent testimony — "You are the light of the world" and "judgment begins at the HOUSE OF GOD" — so MESSIAH YESHUA trims and refines HIS Church into perfection. 

"Clothed with garments down to HIS feet" symbolizes dignity and honor. The LORD JESUS, in a priestly robe, is a Priest; a royal garment, a King; in a judicial attire, a Judge (Prophet). This robe is made of linen which represents righteousness (to be holy). The Holy Garments of linen are the mitre (head-dress, turban), broidered coat, girdle and the breeches. Symbolically, they are worn to show: the Mitre — holiness of thought; Broidered Coat — holiness of heart; Girdle — holiness of service; Breeches — holiness of flesh. 

The robe was seamless indicating no beginning and no ending. The hem of the blue (heavens color) robe had alternating bells and pomegranates. Pomegranates with their multitude of seed indicating fruitfulness. The bell, which is gold, has a tongue in it. Gold for DIVINE, a tongue for telling the testimony. The bells ring clearly because of the pomegranate between each bell. Our LORD JESUS wore the fruit and bells spiritually all around the hem of HIS seamless garment as HE walked upon the earth. HE had a clear ringing testimony which was backed up by the fruit of HIS life. 

The JEWISH TALMUD proclaims: "The Bells said to the fruit-bearing Trees — Why do you not make any noise? — The Trees reply — Our fruits are sufficient advertisement for us." 

"The Golden Belt around HIS breast" speaks of HIS righteousness; the gold, HIS Divine Glory. As the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE, YESHUA will usher in the "Day of Vengeance." [Isaiah/Yeshayah 63. 1 - 4] Because HE is the SON OF MAN, HE will judge all humanity. "For as the FATHER has life in HIMSELF, so HE has granted the SON to have life in HIMSELF, and has given HIM authority to execute judgment also, because HE is the SON OF MAN." [John 5. 26 - 27] 

"HIS head and HIS hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and HIS eyes like a flame of fire." [Revelation 1. 14] "HIS head and hairs, white as wool" illustrates JESUS' fatherhood and patriarchal dignity and wisdom as the ANCIENT of DAYS. The LORD YESHUA ha'MASHIACH is all this! In HIM is all the full divine perfections of GOD'S nature embodied. In HIM is all the hidden treasure of divine wisdom and spiritual illumination. 

"Eyes as a flame of fire" shows intelligence - burning, all penetrating intelligence. . . power to read secrets, to bring hidden things to light, to warm and search all hearts at a single glance. Nothing is hidden from HIM WHO is OMNISCIENT GOD. 

"HIS feet were like fine copper, as if refined in a furnace, and HIS voice as the sound of many waters." [Revelation 1. 15] "HIS feet were like burning copper refined in a furnace." Copper represents judgment. "I will glorify the place where MY feet rest." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 60. 13 Tanakh, Nevi'im] "HIS feet shall tread down HIS enemies; they shall tread the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of ALMIGHTY GOD." [Revelation 19. 15; Isaiah/Yeshayah 63. 1 - 6]

"Voice as the sound of many waters" show that HE is powerful, yet altogether lovely. "See that you do not refuse HIM WHO speaks, for if they did not escape WHO refused HIM WHO spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from HIM WHO speaks from heaven WHOSE VOICE then shook the earth." [Hebrews 12. 25; Jeremiah/Yirmeyah 25. 30-31; Psalms/Tehillym 29] 

"HE had in HIS right hand seven stars, out of HIS mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and HIS countenance was like the sun shining in its strength." [Revelation 1. 16] "In HIS right hand seven stars" — here the LORD JESUS is seen upholding and sustaining the ministry of HIS Church. [Isaiah/Yeshayah 41. 10] "Out of HIS mouth...a sharp Two-Edged Sword" this is HIS OWN WORD, the LIVING, ACTIVE, POWERFUL WORD OF GOD, by which HE shall judge the Church. [Hebrew 4. 1 2] "HIS countenance as the sun shines in HIS strength." MESSIAH YESHUA is the GREAT CREATIVE SOURCE from which all light comes. HE is the "SON OF RIGHTEOUSNESS." [Malachi/Malakhi 4. 2] JESUS is "the LIGHT of the Eternal City." [Revelation 21. 23; 22. 5] 

"And when I saw HIM, I fell at HIS feet as dead. But HE laid HIS right hand on me saying to me — Do not be afraid; I am the FIRST and the LAST." [Revelation 1. 17] Here the glory of MESSIAH'S presence is too great — words cannot describe HIM — HE is so overwhelming to see, John is completely prostrated as though dead. But, John is reassured by the words of the LORD — Fear Not! John's fears and ours are forever gone when we realize MESSIAH YESHUA'S three-fold revelation of HIMSELF: "I am HE WHO lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death." [Revelation 1. 18] "I am the FIRST and LAST" — now MESSIAH shows HIS deity. [Isaiah/Yeshayah 41. 4; 48. 12; Revelation 22. 13] "I am HE WHO lives and was dead, and behold, I AM ALIVE FOREVERMORE." [Revelation 1. 18] The LORD JESUS CHRIST is the LIVING ONE WHO tasted death on our behalf, Who was victorious over all and came forth CONQUEROR & GLORIOUS KING. 

"I have the keys of death and hell." The LORD JESUS holds the keys (authority, power over) of hell. [Revelation 1. 18] JESUS, the KING ETERNAL, opens and none can shut, HE shuts and none can open. While death still holds the bodies of the Saints temporarily, their spirits are no longer in Hades, but in the heavenlies with JESUS CHRIST THE LORD. The gates of hell cannot prevail against the Church in the LORD YESHUA ha'MASHIACH. Hallelu'YAH! 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Good Sabbath! Come my dear friend to meet the Bride, the Sabbath presence, let us welcome! Those who keep the Sabbath and call it a delight shall rejoice in GOD'S Kingdom. 
We give thanks and praise to the LORD GOD our GUARDIAN & REDEEMER. May the love of your HOLY NAME and YOUR Law be rooted deep in our soul and quicken every heart to draw nearer to YOU. May our knowledge of YOU rise like the morning dawn as our longings and aspirations reach out toward a higher goal. May our faith be unshaken and our heart undismayed as we labor and wait for the fulfillment of YOUR prophets of old. And, may YOUR Law be established in the hearts of men and that YOUR children unite in peace and love to serve YOU, our FATHER, the ALMIGHTY AWESOME GOD. Amen! 

Shabbat: One day a week we unplug from the incessant noise and hard work of ‘doing’ to refocus on just ‘being.’ Shabbat brings an inner peace within oneself, and provides a weekly opportunity to connect and relate to family, friends and GOD. Jewish life is built around the family coming together – to eat, to learn, to celebrate, to mourn, and most importantly to transmit the torch of our shared heritage to the next generation. Judaism nurtures the awareness that GOD is actively involved in everything. There are no accidents; everything that happens to us is purposeful and for the best. We can feel secure knowing that we are wrapped in GOD’S loving embrace. 
Day 7 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

Re: Delrifkah: HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
Keep three things in mind that you may escape the results of evil: Know where you came from, where you are going, and before Whom you will have to give a full account. 

MOMENTS 
"For a little while I forsook you; but with great mercies and vast love I will bring you back. In a little wrath, for a moment, I hid MY face from you; but with kindness everlasting I will have mercy on you and take you back in love, says the LORD your REDEEMER." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 54. 7 - 8 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

This compassionately gracious promise to Israel gives a praiseworthy insight into the character of the LORD GOD as well as the relation of time-to-eternity. The DIVINE LOVING OMNISCIENT CREATOR is also a GOD OF WRATH — for HE must punish unrepentant sin in HIS people. Nevertheless HE is much more the GOD OF MERCY. HIS prolonged judgment on HIS chosen people, Israel , is only for a tiny moment compared to HIS everlasting kindness toward redeemed Israel in the ages to come. 

This theme occurs a number of times in HOLY SCRIPTURE: "For HIS anger endures but for a moment" David said, "when HE is pleased there is life; weeping may linger for the night, but at dawn there are shouts of joy." [Psalms (Tehillym) 30. 5 Tanakh, Kethuvim] To those faithful to the EMINENT ONE during a time of judgment against their nation or against the world, the ALMIGHTY says — "Go! MY people, enter your chambers, lock your door behind you; hide but a little moment, until the indignation passes." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 26. 20 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

A time for testing or a time for judgment may persistently continue for many days, months or even years. Comparatively, however, this is only a moment in relation to an eternity of the blessing to come. 

The word "moment (Hebrew: rega)" plainly expresses sudden, instant, wink of the eye, quick. Applied explicitly to NEW COVENANT CHRISTians, it is said — "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory." [2 Corinthians 4. 17] "For behold! I am creating a new heaven and a new earth; the former things shall not be remembered, they shall never come to mind. In all MY Sacred Mount, the Holy Land , nothing evil or vile shall be done— says the LORD." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 65. 17, 25 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Mercifully and lovingly the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL allows trials to discipline, guide and develop us. This works to our advantage as impurities are being removed, leaving behind only that which is lasting, precious and pleasing. The goal of our lives is to bring praise, honor and glory to our LORD GOD and MESSIAH YESHUA. If troubles, sufferings, and grief can best achieve this supreme priority, so let it be. May the OMNIPOTENT GOD OF HEAVEN & EARTH give us eyes of faith to see these moments of affliction in the light of eternal glory with HIM. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
May your ever-growing faith in the GREAT & LOVING HEAVENLY FATHER and CHRIST JESUS, HIS PRECIOUS SON, grant you the privilege to witness and experience the marvelous miracle of being delivered from the yoke of slavery to sin and its consequences. 
Day 6 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

Post  Admin on Thu 20 Aug 2015, 8:37 pm

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
Learning is a path, not a destination. 

LIFE & FAITH 
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." [Hebrews 11. 1] 

The Hebrew word for faith is "emuwn (pronounced ay-moon')" meaning truth, established, faithful, trusting or trustworthy. To the LORD MESSIAH YESHUA, the attribute of faith is of the highest importance for the realization of His PERFECT HUMANITY. YESHUA is the CHIEF WITNESS of faith — the LEADER of all the witnesses of faith, and the AUTHOR & FINISHER of our faith. YESHUA ha'MASHIACH fulfills, in detail, every one of the examples recorded in the Book of Hebrews! 

What is a Life of Faith? 
A Life Lived In Complete Dependence On GOD. "Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge HIM, and HE will direct (smooth) your paths." [Proverbs (Mishle) 3. 5 - 6 Tanakh, Kethuvim] It was said of and known about JESUS, the WORD MADE FLESH, "HE committed HIMSELF to the LORD." [Psalms (Tehillym) 22. 8 Tanakh, Kethuvim] YESHUA said of HIMSELF — "I live because of the FATHER, so he who feeds on ME will live because of ME." [John 6. 57] It is recorded of the SON OF RIGHTEOUSNESS saying, "I will put MY trust in HIM (GOD THE FATHER) — Here am I and the children whom GOD has given ME." [Hebrews 2. 13] MESSIAH YESHUA said HE could do nothing of HIMSELF, HE depended completely on the FATHER. [John 5. 19] The LORD JESUS "was faithful to HIM (the FATHER) that appointed HIM (the SON)." [Hebrews 3. 2] 

A Life Lived In Communion With GOD. In the words written by David concerning MESSIAH YESHUA, "I am ever mindful of the LORD'S PRESENCE; HE is at my right hand; I shall never be shaken. For YOU will not abandon ME to Sheol, or let YOUR FAITHFUL ONE see the Pit." [Psalms (Tehillym) 16. 8, 10 Tanakh, Kethuvim] "HE WHO sent ME is with ME. The FATHER has not left ME alone for I always do those things that please HIM." [John 8. 29 ] The LORD MESSIAH YESHUA lived in constant communion with GOD. [Mark 1. 35] 

A Life Lived In Obedience To GOD. The LORD YESHUA proved HIS obedience in HIS humanity. "In the days of HIS flesh, when HE had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to HIM WHO was able to save HIM from death, and was heard because of HIS GODly fear, though HE was a SON, yet HE learned obedience by the things which HE suffered." [Hebrews 5. 7 - 8] JESUS said, "I always do those things that please MY FATHER." [John 8. 29-c] "I have kept MY FATHER'S commandments and abide in HIS love." [John 15. 10] "MY meat is to do the will of HIM that sent ME, and finish HIS work. For I have come down from heaven, not to do MY OWN will, but the will of HIM WHO sent ME." [John 4. 34; 6. 38] "I come to do YOUR will, O GOD." [Hebrews 10. 7, 9; Mark 14. 36; Luke 22. 42] 

A Life Lived In Assured Confidence In The Unseen Rapture. The HOLY ANOINTED REDEEMER knew there was joy awaiting HIM after death "for the joy that was set before HIM endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the Throne of GOD." [Hebrews 12. 2] The LORD JESUS believed that GOD THE FATHER would raise HIM from the dead. [Psalms/Tehillym 16. 10] HE also promised HIS disciples that HE would come again after HE had gone away. "In MY FATHER'S house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I WILL COME AGAIN AND RECEIVE YOU TO MYSELF; that where I am, there you may be also." [John 14. 2 - 3] 

Furthermore, we who believe and fully trust JESUS THE MESSIAH, our BLESSED REDEEMER, live in assured, certain, secure confidence because of this promised hope. We know in WHOM we belief and are fully persuaded for HOLY ALMIGHTY ONE is faithful and true! 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Life's challenges work out for the best when we recognize what appear to be obstacles as opportunities to develop ourselves for the better and recognize that all things come from OMNIPOTENT GOD'S invisible hand that guides our lives. 
Day 5 of Repentance. 


Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

Never mind the remorse, don't commit the sin! 

BOTTLED TEARS 
"YOU (LORD GOD) keep count of my wanderings; put my tears into YOUR bottle; into YOUR record book." [Psalms (Tehillym) 56. 8 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The Hebrew prophets mention professional mourners, who were called in at the time of sorrow to express mourning for the dead. "Send for the skilled women, let them come. Let them quickly start a wailing for us that our eyes may run with tears, our eyelids flow with water." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 9. 17 - 18 Tanakh, Nevi'im] Tears flow freely and openly in the Oriental custom, a highly emotional peoples - at such times they are considered to be a definite means of bringing comfort to sorrowing hearts. [John 11. 33] It was not uncommon to see the tears being gathered and collected into bottles and kept as special remembrances. 

The weeping woman, a sinner, who washed the feet of MESSIAH YESHUA with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head, was none other than Miryam (Mary) the sister of Martha and Lazarus. The tears she wept and the precious bottled tears were used to wash the feet of her LORD, then she proceeded to kiss and anoint them with the fragrant oil from the alabaster flask. [Luke 7. 37 - 50] Though her sins were many, they were forgiven, for she loved much. Noticeably, the more one is forgiven, the more they are able to love! 

Jeremiah, the weeping prophet, desired that his people would have a change of heart so they too could be forgiven, "Oh my suffering, my suffering! How I am pained and writhe! Oh, the walls of my heart! My heart moans within me, I cannot be silent; for disaster overtakes disaster." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 4. 19-20 Tanakh, Nevi'im] "That is why I say — Let me be, I will weep bitterly; do not labor to comfort me because of the ruin of my poor people." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 22. 4 Tanakh, Nevi'im] "Oh, that my head were water, my eyes a fountain of tears! Then would I weep day and night for the slain of my poor people!" [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 9. 1 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

"Draw near to GOD and HE will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the LORD, and HE will lift you up." [James 4. 8 - 10] The HOLY CREATOR GOD OF ISRAEL stores our tears and they are precious to HIM as we "delight to do HIS will and keep HIS Law in our heart." [Psalms/Tehillym 40. 8] Great and wondrous promises belong to those who seek for the TRUE & LIVING GOD in sincerity; and trust and obey. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel , O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
May your heart be filled with intuition and your words be filled with insight; songs of praise ever be upon your tongue and your vision be on a straight path before you. May your eyes shine with the light of holy words and your face reflect the brightness of the heavens; and, your lips ever speak wisdom and your fulfillment be in righteousness even as you ever yearn to hear the words of the HOLY ONE OF OLD. 
Day 4 of Repentance. 


Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
The real and the spiritual are one, like body and soul in a living man. It is for the law to clear the path; it is for the soul to sense the spirit. 

WHICH SHEBA 
"The descendants of Ham (son of Noah): Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan . The descendants of Cush : Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabtecah. The descendants of Raamah: SHEBA and DEDAN." [Genesis (Bereshith) 10. 7 Tanakh, Torah] This list of Ham's genealogy shows his sons and their families. 

"Abraham (a Semite, descendant of Shem) took another wife, named Keturah (after Sarah's death). She bore him Zimram and Jokshan. Jokshan begot SHEBA and DEDAN." [Genesis (Bereshith) 25. 1 - 2 Tanakh, Torah] "Abraham willed all that he owned to Isaac; but to Abraham's sons by concubines Abraham gave gifts while he was still living, and he sent them away from his son Isaac EASTWARD, to the land of the EAST." [Genesis (Bereshith) 25. 5 - 6 Tanakh, Torah] Consider the names, Sheba and Dedan — they are alike, but the people are separate as well as their ancestry. The nationalities are completely different. Hence, the locations of the homeland are either found in Ethiopia , descendants of Ham (which is south of Egypt , and SW of Jerusalem), or Arabia , descendants of Abraham. 

When the Queen of Sheba came to visit Solomon and test his wisdom, she came from the South (Arabia) not from Africa . The LORD JESUS confirmed this location when HE was teaching and the Scribes and Pharisees demanded of HIM a sign. MESSIAH affirmed — "the queen of the south will rise up in the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for she came from the ENDS OF THE EARTH to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and indeed a greater than Solomon is here." [Matthew 12. 42] South Arabia is at "the end of the earth (beyond that there is only water)" as it is a peninsula in the Arabian Sea (modern Oman & Yemen). 

The " Sheba of Arabia" is an established region of land while the " Sheba of Ethiopia" is part of the Ethiopian people and not a separate geographical location. 

Likewise, the exaggerated story that Solomon and the Queen of Sheba had a son together and that the son's descendents later took the Ark of the Covenant to Ethiopia simply is "a fable, a legend, a myth" giving favor to the wicked devil and his evil lies and deceits. HOLY SCRIPTURE records, "King Solomon, in turn, gave the Queen of Sheba everything she expressed a desire for, exceeding in return for what she had brought to the king. Then she and her courtiers left and returned to her own land." [2 Chronicles (Dibre Hayamin Bet) 9. 12 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

Many claim and accept an ethnic group of the Ethiopians to be of Jewish descent due to their religious practices. However, these "acquired customs" were adopted when the world-spread fame of Solomon caused peoples from all nations to seek Solomon's TRUE & LIVING GOD. As was in the case with Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch, "So he (Philip) arose and went. And behold, a man of Ethiopia , a eunuch of great authority under Candace the Queen of the Ethiopians, who had charge of all her treasury, and had come to Jerusalem to worship, was returning. And sitting in his chariot, he was reading Isaiah the prophet." [Acts 8. 27 - 28] Even long years after Solomon, the whole world knew about the MIGHTY GOD OF ISRAEL. 

Instead of believing everything we hear, we should check out the HOLY SCRIPTURES for ourselves. Search GOD'S WRITTEN WORD, line-upon-line, compare the TRUE SCRIPTURES and history with the legendary accounts, which are but fables, and myths that you may be able to discern between TRUTH and lies. Many cults and isms have originated from these errors, so Beware! "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables." [2 Timothy 4. 3 - 4] Know in WHOM you believe, and live confident in HIS amazing truth. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Exalted and hallowed be GOD'S greatness in this world HE created. May Your will be fulfilled and YOUR sovereignty revealed, MOST HOLY ONE, in the days of our lifetime and the life of the whole House of Israel speedily and in our time, Amen. May YOU be blessed forever, even throughout all eternity. May YOU, be blessed, praised & honored, extolled & glorified, adored & exalted above all else. Amen 
Day 3 of Repentance. 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
To remember well is not necessarily a sign of wisdom.

DAVID'S TABERNACLE
"They brought in the Ark of the LORD, and set it up in its place inside the tent that David had pitched for it, and David sacrificed burnt offerings and peace offerings before the LORD." [2 Samuel (Shemuel Bet) 6. 17 Tanakh, Nevi'im; also 1 Chronicles/Dibre Hayamin Alef 16. 1]

In spite of the now trend in many churches regarding "entering into David's Tabernacle to revere and worship the MOST HIGH GOD" — it is simply a man-made cliché, method, or form of worship and not a BIBLICAL doctrine; nor is this "the spiritual body" of believers. David's Tabernacle was a literal tabernacle (more correctly a "tent") erected to house or shelter the Ark of the Covenant.

When David saw how Obed-Edom was being blessed, he had the Ark of the Covenant brought from the house of Obed-Edom to Jerusalem . "The LORD has blessed the house of Obed-Edom and all that belongs to him, because of the Ark of GOD. So David went and brought up the Ark of GOD from the house of Obed-Edom to the City of David with gladness." [2 Samuel (Shemuel Bet) 6. 12 Tanakh, Nevi'im]

Isaiah also speaks of David's tent (tabernacle) being established and MESSIAH YESHUA is on the Throne: "And a throne shall be established in goodness in the tent of David, and on it shall sit in faithfulness a RULER devoted to justice and zealous for equity." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 16. 5 Tanakh, Nevi'im] "And what will HE answer the messengers of any nation? That Zion has been established by the LORD: In it, the needy of HIS people shall find shelter." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 14. 32 Tanakh, Nevi'im]

In the Kingdom Age, when Israel is restored, so will the Tabernacle of David. "In that day, I will set up again the fallen tabernacle of David: I will mend its breaches and set up its ruins anew. I will build it firm as in the days of old." [Amos (Amus) 9. 11 Tanakh, Nevi'im]

The "PRESENCE" of the LORD MESSIAH YESHUA will be in Jerusalem again — HE is the "GLORIOUS FEATURE" ruling the KINGDOM OF GOD on earth. "After this (taking out of a people for HIS NAME) I will return and will rebuild the Tabernacle of David, which has fallen down; I will rebuild its ruins, and I will set it up; so that the rest of mankind may seek the LORD, even all the Gentiles who are called by MY NAME, says the LORD WHO does all these things." [Acts 15. 16 - 17]

Oh, what a day that will be! And, the ETERNAL ONE alone will be our GOD and we will be HIS people, and David will be the Prince forever. [see Ezekiel/Yehezke-El 37. 24 - 25]

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel !
There is a place for believers in the midst of a pagan society—a challenging position of change and conflict overwhelmed with problems and full of difficulties. For the fainthearted, this is threatening; for the audacious, courageous and noble-minded, Exciting!!! . . .Try a little exhilarating excitement!
The day is short and the work is great; but the laborers are idle, though the reward be great, and the MASTER of the work presses. It is not incumbent upon you to complete the work; but you must not therefore cease from it. If you have worked much, great shall be your reward — for the MASTER WHO employed you is faithful in HIS payment. But know that the true reward is not of this world.
Elul, the month of love: The four Hebrew letters of the word Elul (aleph-lamed-vav-lamed) are the first letters of the four words Ani l’dodi v’dodi lee – “I am to my BELOVED and my BELOVED is to me.” [Song of Songs 6:3] These words sum up the relationship between ALMIGHTY GOD and HIS people.
Day 2 of Repentance.

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
A fault recognized is half corrected.

OUR ROCK, THE CREATOR
"You neglected the ROCK WHO begot you, forgot the GOD WHO brought you forth." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 32. 18 Tanakh, Torah]

Moses prophesied the coming apostasy of Israel in a prophetic history of Israel just before he died. Not only did his prophecy come true for the nation of Israel , but the same could be said of most Christianity today.

Moses also described how the Israelites had been blessed greatly of the LORD GOD, but instead of drawing closer to HIM they, "grew fat and gross and coarse and forsook GOD WHO made them and spurned the ROCK of their salvation." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 32. 15 Tanakh, Torah] The "ROCK" referred to here is the rock (Hebrew: t'suwr) which Moses struck, yielding water to sustain them in the journeys and provided an ever-present reminder of the HOLY ONE'S marvelous and awesome provision. . . and that "ROCK was CHRIST." [1 Corinthians 10. 4] However, they totally forgot the MIGHTY GOD of their creation and salvation, and sacrificed to demons, gods they did not know and new gods that were made later. [Deuteronomy/Devarim 32. 17]

The ETERNAL GOD OF JACOB is the ONE WHO has given us life, and without HIM and HIS daily sustenance, all life would cease. How very foolish it is to attempt to live life without the only SAVIOR, our FATHER GOD, WHO begot us — WHO gave us life and even now maintains it. All too often the ALMIGHTY CREATOR is excluded from our churches, homes; and more vehemently disregarded in government and schools. Many so-called followers of MESSIAH YESHUA also live their lives as practical atheists, making decisions and living their lives just as if the LORD GOD OF HEAVEN did not exist. "Woe to the multitude of many people, because you have forgotten the GOD WHO saves you, and have not remembered the ROCK WHO shelters you." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 17. 10, 12 Tanakh, Nevi'im] Let us fully trust and re-commit ourselves to giving the rightful place in our lives and sphere of influence to the ROCK WHO begot us.

"The NAME of the LORD I proclaim; give glory to our GOD! HE is the ROCK! HIS work is perfect, Yes, all HIS ways are just, a FAITHFUL GOD OF TRUTH, without injustice, righteous, true and upright is HE." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 32. 3 - 4 Tanakh, Torah] "I adore YOU, O LORD, my STRENGTH, O LORD, my FORTRESS and my DELIVERER; my GOD, my ROCK in WHOM I seek REFUGE; my SHIELD, the MIGHTY HORN of my salvation, my STRONGHOLD and STRENGTH." [Psalms (Tehillym) 18. 2 Tanakh, Kethuvim] O LORD, YOU are my God, I love YOU and give YOU praise; there is none like YOU!

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel !
Bidding farewell to Sabbath! O LORD GOD OF HOSTS give us the kindness to hear with compassion, to offer support, loving comfort, and care; give us the courage to do what is needed, the wisdom to choose what is right and most fair; give us the vision to see what is possible; give us the faith that will help pave the way for a present that’s hopeful, a future that’s peaceful — give us the heart to bring joy to each day.
We also wish you a blessed Rosh Chodesh – welcoming the month of Elul. Tonight, the evening of August 15th begins the sixth month on the Biblical calendar, the month of Elul. This month is a month of repentance and preparation for the upcoming Fall Feasts. The Shofar is blown every morning in every synagogue in order to wake people up for the coming Day of Judgment on the Feast of Trumpets and the Days of Awe. According to Jewish tradition Moses began his second 40-day fast on the first of Elul, asking GOD to forgive Israel for the sin with the golden calf and to renew the covenant...his fast ended on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. [Exodus/Shemot 32:11-13,31-32] The 40 days from the 1st of Elul to Yom Kippur became a traditional time of repentance, fasting, and prayer among the Jewish people. Very likely our BELOVED MASTER went through HIS 40-day fast recorded in the GOSPELS during this time.
Tov Shavua — Have a good week!
Day 1 of Repentance

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

Re: Delrifkah: HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY.

Post  Admin on Sat 15 Aug 2015, 10:24 pm

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Don’t pray for tasks equal to your powers; pray for powers equal to your tasks.

TO BE LIKE HIM
"That I may know HIM and the power of HIS resurrection, and the fellowship of HIS sufferings, being conformed to HIS death." [Philippians 3. 10]

The Apostle Paul had a strong desire to know MESSIAH in an intimate fashion — to experience an even closer and higher relationship. This text lists three things which we will also desire and experience if we have that same longing for a close personal relationship with the LORD YESHUA ha’MASHIACH.

The power of HIS resurrection: The triumphant victory of YESHUA over sin and death exhibited HIS great power. Paul desired for the resurrection of the body, "if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead." [Philippians 3. 11] But more so, he longed for power over sin and to "be dead indeed to sin, but alive to GOD in CHRIST JESUS our LORD." [Romans 6. 11] "Become dead to the Law through the body of CHRIST...that we should bear fruit to GOD." [Romans 7. 4]

The fellowship of HIS sufferings: Again Paul’s desire is to know the LORD MESSIAH, and that aspiration was so great he was more then willing to suffer as his SAVIOR had suffered, if need be. Paul did suffer in many ways — in labors, in stripes, in prisons, in deaths, five times he received forty stripes minus one, beaten with rods, stoned once, shipwrecked three times, a night and a day in the deep, in journeys, in perils of waters, robbed, in perils from countrymen, in perils from Gentiles, in perils in the city, in wilderness, in the sea, among false brethren; in weariness and toil, lack of sleep, hungry, thirsty, in fastings, in cold and nakedness — besides the other things. [see 2 Corinthians 11. 23 - 28] "For to this you were called, because CHRIST also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow HIS steps." [1 Peter 2. 21] "If indeed we suffer with HIM, that we may also be glorified together." [Romans 8. 17] "For to you it has been granted on behalf of CHRIST, not only to believe in HIM, but also to suffer for HIS sake." [Philippians 1. 29]

Being made conformable to HIS death: The Apostle Paul was more then willing to die as the MESSIAH had died and he did die a martyr’s death when he was beheaded in prison in Rome . However, the death Paul wanted was to be like YESHUA it was to gaining complete victory over all sin. For the body of sin will be done away with when he dies for "he who has died has been freed from sin." [Romans 6. 7] "Therefore, since CHRIST suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of GOD." [1 Peter 4. 1 - 2]

To know the ALL-TOGETHER LOVELY ONE in this manner, to be conformed to HIM as was Paul’s desire, primarily demands developing the servant’s heart and selfless humility that took MESSIAH YESHUA to the cross. "And we know that the SON OF GOD has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know HIM WHO is TRUE; and we are in HIM WHO is TRUE, in HIS SON JESUS CHRIST. This is the TRUE GOD and ETERNAL LIFE." [1 John 5. 20],

YESHUA , GOD’S INCARNATE TABERNACLE, assures us that HIS "grace is sufficient for you, for MY strength is made perfect in weakness." [2 Corinthians 12. 9] To be like JESUS is my desire. What’s yours?

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel !
Welcoming & Celebrating Shabbat! Of old YOU did rest on the seventh day; YOU therefore blessed the Sabbath. For every work of YOUR hand praises YOU; YOUR redeemed bless you at all times. Blessed be the LORD, the MAKER, the LIVING GOD and EVERLASTING KING — for from old you have given YOUR servants the abundance of YOUR mercies and YOUR loving kindnesses. YOU, my PRECIOUS REDEEMER, are above all gods, executing great judgment. YOU are KING over all the earth, YOU are ONE LORD, and YOUR NAME is ECHAD (ONE).

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

Post  Admin on Sat 15 Aug 2015, 12:14 am

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
Much experience is the crown of the old men and the fear of ALMIGHTY GOD is their glory. 

INFINITELY GOD 
"And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying — Blessing and honour and glory and power be to HIM WHO sits on the Throne, and to the LAMB, forever and ever! Amen" [Revelation 5. 13] 

The BELOVED LAMB is one with, and yet distinct from "HIM that sat on the throne." [Revelation 4. 10; 5. 1, 6 - 7] The Four Beasts or Living Creatures, and the 24-Elders "fell down before the LAMB" to worship HIM. If, as cultists maintain, the ANOINTED LAMB OF GOD is less than the OMNIPOTENT CREATOR, how would violating of the first commandment, "You shall have no other gods before ME" [Exodus/Shemot 20. 3] be tolerated in ALMIGHTY GOD'S OMNIPOTENT PRESENCE? The answer: YESHUA ha'MASHIACH is the INVINCIBLE, SUPREME GOD OF HEAVEN — WHO is ONE with HIM (GOD THE FATHER) WHO sat on the Throne! 

Worship is given to GOD THE FATHER: "Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our GOD forever and ever. Amen" [Revelation 7. 12] 

Worship is given to GOD THE SON: MESSIAH YESHUA receives the same praise given to GOD THE FATHER — "Worthy is the LAMB WHO was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory and blessing!" [Revelation 5. 12] 

"I am Yehowah (the LORD), that is MY NAME; and I will not yield MY glory to another." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 42. 8 Tanakh, Nevi'im] "For MY sake, MY own sake, do I act — lest MY NAME be dishonored! I will not give MY glory to another." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 48. 11 Tanakh, Nevi'im] In view of the fact that the LORD JESUS shares in GOD'S glory; HE cannot be another GOD. The LORD YESHUA is, as HE said — "ONE (Hebrew: echad — a compound unity) with the FATHER." [John 10. 30] 

This does not, in any way, diminish the praise and honor due the FATHER. HE is to be worshipped and praised for loving us so very much that HE commissioned the SON (MESSIAH YESHUA) to save sinners. The SON (JESUS) said — "all men should honor the SON, even as they honor the FATHER." [John 5. 23] 

The human personality is difficult to understand, much less the complex intricacy of GOD ALMIGHTY being infinitely more so. The TRI-UNITY OF GOD is so revealed throughout HOLY SCRIPTURES as the EVER-LIVING ONE proclaims HIMSELF as GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON and GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT — Perfect TRINITY. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel ! 
It has been shown that all might know that the LORD, HE is GOD, there is none other. HE alone does wonders, for HIS mercy endures forever. The glory of the LORD is eternal, the LORD rejoices in HIS works. Blessed be the NAME OF THE LORD from this time forth and forever; for out of Zion goes forth the Law and the WORD OF GOD from Jerusalem . 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
A person who aims at nothing has a target he cannot miss. 

HYSSOP 
"Purge me with hyssop till I am pure; wash me till I am whiter than snow." [Psalms (Tehillym) 51. 7 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

Hyssop is the plant that penicillin was first found in. HOLY SCRIPTURE speaks of this plant in both the OLD & NEW COVENANTS. The man healed of leprosy was to go the priest "then the priest shall command to take for him who is to be cleansed two living and clean birds, cedar wood, scarlet, and hyssop." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 14. 4 Tanakh, Torah] The priest would kill one bird in a vessel over running water. The living bird, the cedar wood, the scarlet and the hyssop and dip them in the blood of the bird that was killed over the running water. Then, the priest would sprinkle the blood on the leprous man seven times, pronounce him clean, then let the living bird loose in an open field. [Leviticus/Vayikra 14. 1 - 7] 

The "Two Clean Birds" depict the LORD YESHUA ha'MASHIACH, WHO is the GOD-MAN. "Cedar" depicts imperishable existence; "Scarlet" — the emblem of life; and "Hyssop" represents purification from defilement. The cedar and hyssop also symbolize types of all nature, from the highest to the lowest. All these symbols picture the death and resurrection of our REDEEMING SAVIOR for "whosoever will" come to HIM. 

David's prayer was that the ETERNAL ONE would cleanse him of his sin of murder (of Uriah the Hittite) and adultery (with Uriah's wife, Bathsheba). "Have mercy upon me, O GOD, as befits YOUR loving-kindness and faithfulness — in keeping with YOUR abundant compassion, blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly of my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. Hide YOUR face from my sins, blot out all my iniquities. Fashion a clean, pure heart for me, O GOD, and renew within me a steadfast spirit." [Psalms (Tehillym) 51. 1 – 2. 9 - 10 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

On Golgotha 's Cross, the LORD JESUS, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the SCRIPTURE might be fulfilled, said — "I thirst!" HE was then given a sour wine on hyssop. When it was put to HIS mouth, all prophecy to the point of HIS death was fulfilled. When YESHUA the SACRIFICIAL LAMB OF GOD received the sour wine, HE said — "It is finished!" Then bowing HIS head, YESHUA gave up HIS spirit. [John 19. 28 - 30] 

Whoever touches death (result of sin) or was unclean must now come to the LORD JESUS for cleansing, HE is ever our CONTINUAL OFFERING. "For GOD so loved the world that HE gave HIS only begotten SON, that whoever believes in HIM should not perish but have everlasting life. He who believes in the SON has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the SON shall not see life, but the wrath of GOD abides on him." [John 3. 15 - 16, 36] 

Although penicillin can help alleviate or actually eliminate some diseases, it cannot treat or cure us from sin. However, the precious cleansing blood of YESHUA ha'MASHIACH is the ONLY SOURCE — the PERFECT REMEDY — it will never lose it's cleansing, saving power. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel! 
Through the common days flow the refreshing waters of GOD'S loving-kindness, yet we forget THE SOURCE. May this hour awaken within us a sense of our dependence upon YOU. Create in us a clean heart and renew a right spirit within us that we may face our daily duty with a firm courage and a tranquil mind. May we learn to know that in loving and serving our fellowmen, we are loving and serving YOU. O Come! O Come IMMANU’EL! 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem , is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.
