Thought FOR TODAY

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
One should enhance, not minimize, the importance of holy matters.

ALABASTER FLASK
"And being in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, as HE (YESHUA)
sat at the table, a woman came having an alabaster flask of very costly
oil of spikenard. Then she broke the flask and poured it on HIS head."
[Mark 14. 3]

Matthew and John also tell of this incident and we discover that this
woman is none other than Miryam (Mary) sister to Lazarus (whom JESUS
raised from the dead) and Martha, daughter of Simon the leper. In
John's account, we learn also that she is the same woman who "anointed
the feet of JESUS, and wiped them with her hair; and the house was
filled with the odor of the ointment." [John 12. 3]

For this loving act of worship, the LORD YESHUA affirmed, "Assuredly, I
say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what
this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her." [Matthew
26. 13] The alabaster flask was broken, never to be used again.
Freely, enthusiastically, generously and fittingly Miryam (Mary) poured
the precious oil over her SAVIOUR from HIS head to HIS feet, anointing
HIS whole body. In reality, she was performing a priestly function by
her actions. However, she went even further. . . when the oils had run
down to HIS feet, she wiped them dry with her long hair. What
impressive, amazing, intense love!

At this, the disciples were shocked and called it wasteful; but YESHUA
ha'MASHIACH said, "Let her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a
good work for ME...she has done what she could. She has come beforehand
to anoint MY BODY for burial." [Mark 14. 6, 8]

Unknown to them, in just one week MESSIAH YESHUA'S body would be laid in
a tomb, anointed with myrrh instead of spikenard, and wrapped in burial
linens instead of Miryam's beautiful hair. But the LORD JESUS CHRIST
knew, and Miryam had "done what she could" to show, with honest and open
sincerity, her love for her wonderful LOVING REDEEMER. It cost her
dearly - not only in material possessions, but in sacrificing her pride
and self-esteem; and the LORD YESHUA was honoured, as it should be.
Miryam (Mary) did what she could for her LORD & SAVIOUR to demonstrate
her love; a small thing perhaps, but that act was significant and the
moment was one that counted. Have we so loved our WONDERFUL LORD???


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
We greet you and wish you many abundant blessings this
Passover-Resurrection Season!
May YOU, MOST HOLY ONE, be blessed, praised & honoured, extolled &
glorified, adored & exalted above all else. Blessed are YOU, LORD GOD
beyond all blessings & hymns, praises & consolations that may be uttered
in this world. May peace abundant descend from heaven with life for us
and to all Israel, Amen.
"Have A Blessed Passover!" to our family of friends.


Praying for the peace of Jerusalem is praying for the return of Messiah
Jesus and His Kingdom.
